God bless Gov. Greg Abbott and the great State of Texas!

Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday rebuffed a month-old request from the federal government that Texas review its Iran sanctions in light of the nuclear agreement negotiated by the United States with other world powers.

Instead, Abbott said he remains determined to increase Texas’ sanctions against Iran, as he outlined in January when he visited Israel and met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Because the Iran deal is fundamentally flawed and does not permanently dismantle Iran’s nuclear capability, Texas will maintain its sanctions against Iran. Further, because your administration has recklessly and unilaterally removed critical sanctions, I have called on the Texas Legislature to strengthen the Iran sanctions that Texas already has in place,” Abbott wrote Monday….

Abbott, in a letter to President Barack Obama, instead slammed the deal and said that as a staunch supporter of Israel, “I am committed to doing everything in my power to oppose this misguided deal with Iran. Accordingly, not only will we not withdraw our sanctions, but we will strengthen them to ensure Texas taxpayer dollars are not used to aid and abet Iran.”

    “to ensure Texas taxpayer dollars are not used to aid and abet Iran.” And that is music to my ears. Furthermore we are celebrating, this month, living in Texas after escaping the infamous hell**** of weather, traffic and taxes of Arlington, Virginia 20 years ago~!!!
