A Catastrophic Deal
Beetle Belle is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, March 2, 2015. Our colorful friend, Beetle Belle, is with me this morning at the breakfast table. Belle is out of her mind with worry about President Obama's inexplicable negotiations with Iran over nuclear weapons. Belle has asked me to invite all of you to breakfast this morning. She is whipping up a batch of cheese blintzes and I am mixing up an enormous amount of Jamaican coffees. We look forward to the pleasure of your company.
A Nuclear Iran
Thank you all for joining me this morning. I have been reading reports that say that President Obama thinks that Iran should be able to build a nuclear bomb ten years from now. It seems that Iran will be able to keep their enriched uranium. The thought of this is so devastating that I hope i am just having a nightmare or an out of body experience. I'm afraid, however, that neither is really happening. Iran is going to keep their uranium and they will do so compliments of President Obama and that august body erroneously called the United Nations. Once the ugly deal is accomplished, a good night' s sleep will become a relic of the past, a past when we had true leadership in the United States. Just what the world needs now is a nuclear Iran! If the current terms make it through, President Obama, will leave office claiming he stopped Iran from developing nuclear weapons on his watch. A two year old has the capacity to turn his back on such an outrageous claim. President Obama will be responsible for giving Iran the green light to go nuclear and life as we know it will suddenly become more dangerous than it already is.
A One Man Show
I have a disturbing picture of a frantic Obama holding a long list of must-dos before he leaves office. The list is an ugly piece of work. Each time he crosses an accomplished chore off the list, we lose our freedom. Each time he crosses something off the list, the long, intrusive arm of the government grows more invasive. Each time he crosses another accomplishment off the list, our nation loses its status in the world and the country we loved disappears from sight. I have asked this question many times over the last six years: Where is Congress in all of this? We used to have a system of government in this country that actually worked quite well. Congress crafted bills and the President signed them. Now the President writes the legislation, and never tells Congress a thing. He prefers to go it alone, and go it alone he does. He releases terrorists who will live to kill again. He does it on his own authority. He shrinks our military, and he does it on his own authority. He uses government agencies to intimidate his enemies, and he gets away with it. In fact, he gets way with all of it. His stance and action on immigration have left us vulnerable to attack, and that attack is really just a matter of time. He has bowed to our enemies and spit in the face of our friends. No better example of that is this president's disgusting treatment of Israel. He has jeopardized our relationship with our ally in the Middle East and he gets away with it. Please tell me, where is Congress?
Speaking strictly for myself, I am delighted that John Boehner invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress. It will mark the first time, in a long time, when I won't want to run to the television to turn the sound off. I laughed when I heard White House spokespeople telling the nation that Netanyahu wasn't behaving properly. This from an administration that treats leaders of countries we are allied with like garbage. When Netanyahu visited the White House on one occasion, Obama left the Prime Minister alone to twiddle his thumbs while he went to join his family for dinner. I also found it repulsive that these same "spokespeople" had the audacity to suggest that the Prime Minister will have to pay a price for accepting the invitation to address Congress. This administration doesn't give a fig about decency, protocol or manners. It is Chicago thuggery at its worst. Prime Minister Netanyahu will have a lot to say about the certainty of a nuclear Iran. This nation has to hear him speak. This nation has to hear the voice of reason and common sense. We won't be getting that from the White House anytime soon.
The whole year through
Just an old sour song
Keeps Washington on my mind....

President Obama has added changing Medicare to his long list of things he must do before leaving office. The bottom line is quite simple. Te core of Medicare is being trashed.
CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour has a false and distorted view of journalisn in America. Her opinions belong in the international arena. Bringing Donald Trump into the mix is ludicrous.
Bernie Sanders is giving Hillary Clinton a run for her money. It isn't because he has terrific ideas. It's because his followers don't have a clue who he is and what he believes in.
