Conservative Republicans have revolted on Wednesday at the initial debate in Congress for the Iran nuclear deal and have delayed the voting on the resolution of disapproval that would kill the deal. During the initial procedural motion to start off the debate on the Iran agreement, conservative Republicans have said that there wasn’t enough information concerning the deal and called on President Barack Obama to provide more details on secret side deals of the nuclear agreement. Due to this development, the House Republican leaders have come up with a plan to vote on a measure that Barack Obama has violated the law by not providing all of the details of the agreement, as well as a measure that would prevent Obama from lifting sanction on Iran. They also said that they are going to vote on the resolution of approval only to demonstrate that a majority of the House of Representatives is ...

According to Reuters, Union activist Cliff Smith said that Sanders was unknown to him, but after the Senator made his speech at the Los Angeles sports arena in front of 27,000 people, Smith changed his mind.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman visited the White House on Friday and met with U.S. President Barack Obama to talk the Iran nuclear deal and the security of the Middle East.

Salman did not attend the Gulf Arab states summit at Camp David earlier this year, which was interpreted as a diplomatic blow to the United States. However, both countries denied such claims. According to Reuters, at a press conference at the Saudi Arabia embassy, the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir stated that King Salman was very satisfied with Obama’s assurance that even though Iran would receive all of its $56 billion due to the sanction relief, there would ...
