WASHINGTON – Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) voted on Friday to block President Obama’s proposed nuclear agreement with Iran and prohibit the administration from lifting current sanctions on the country until January 21, 2017.
“The president is pushing a deal that is bad for the United States and bad for our allies,” said Mullin. “Like me, the people of Oklahoma overwhelmingly disapprove of this deal, and I am working to protect them and their families from the president’s dangerous actions.”
Standing on the Mount of Olives, with the Garden of Gethsemane below, Jerusalem’s Old City on one side and the Judean Desert on the other, I pictured what this spot must have looked like when Jesus told the disciples about the end of time.
It was peaceful—so peaceful that it was hard to remember that just outside of the Israel border, terrorist groups are working every day to destroy our freedoms.
Many Oklahomans have expressed their deep concerns about the president’s deal with Iran on nuclear weapons and sanctions. Rest assured, I share these concerns, and I want to take this opportunity to update the Second District on the situation.

As a result, the United States came out of both events stronger than before.
