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?

Welcome Bebe

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.

You asked where is Congress in all of this? That is a darn good question. They are still putting on the show, but accomplishing nothing. It is almost like they have each been handed a script to follow as to their personal role in every situation, and they follow the script. Of course the final result has already been decided even before they read the script.

I truly doubt we will ever recover from all the damage that has been caused by two terms of this failed administration.

Pop and Belle,

I heard another twist on the saga of Obama leaving Netanyahu to fend for himself for dinner while our gracious host went to eat with his family. He told Bebe to order from the White House mess and when he tried to do so they had NOTHING kosher.

Obama is both a bore and arrogant but also a slob without any manners.

Good Morning Mike,

I agree. Apparently, following the rule of law only applies to us and not this president or his administration. He breaks the law time and time again and Congress gives lip service to it. We no longer have representation in Washington. We have a dictator and a body of people who sit by and do absolutely nothing meaningful to stop the destruction of America. I'll be at the Inn and I'll save you a seat.

It is hard to believe the criminal in the white house still gets away with doing what he wants, congress does not do anything and we no longer have a free press. Everything is in place for the next president no matter who he is. (Let's hope it isn't Hilary)

Good Morning taxlarry,

The press is responsible for keeping the uninformed- uninformed. The President is responsible for destroying America. If elected, Hillary, will continue the role of dictator. She too will bow to the heads of counties who don't have our best interests at heart, but who give her money to buy her loyalty. The American people won't be in the picture. I am heading for the Inn on the early side. That is the only place I feel safe.

We made our mistake about Iran during the Carter administration.

We made our mistake about North Korea during the Korean War.

Congress wasn't working then, and it hasn't worked yet.

Now, we have a Reconstituted Russia, and a confused but powerful China to deal with. These two countries were allowed by Congress to thwart our dealing with Korea, and Vietnam. Now they are back to bolster Iran.

It is not just this president, and the last several congresses that are working against us, the congresses of the past helped put us in the world situation we are in today.

President Obama is probably doing a worse job than even did President Carter.

President Obama is going to stiff our only real Allie in the Middle East.

Iran is then going to become like Iraq did after 911.

You can't please everyone, but Obama is trying to please the wrong ones.

Obama will go down in history as a great President. He will get credit for the "overhaul" of our healthcare system, fixing the internet, and getting guns and ammo out of the hands of all but the criminals.

Congress has lost their way and have no idea what they are supposed to do. The game playing in Washington has reached a level they no longer understand. Only the "Chicago thugs" understand the way the game is to be played now.

Dear fp,

I don't understand it either. I hear individual people in Congress talk about this lawless president and yet no action is taken to stop him. I have never been so frustrated or frightened for the future of this country as I am now. This potential deal with Iran is insane!!! See you at the Inn. It really is the only place I feel safe.


breakfastpop profile image

breakfastpop 19 months ago Author

Dear Mike,

I actually heard Alan Colmes say that Obama will go down in history as the greatest President. I have come to the conclusion that this is happening because people in Congress and in the electorate are incredibly stupid and incapable of thinking rationally. The dumbing down of America has reached its full potential which explains how Obama got elected twice. We are in deep trouble and the problem is that way too many people are not aware of our predicament.


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 19 months ago from Rural Arizona

Your right. Many of those who voted for him would vote for him again if he could run. All they needed to hear was "Entitlements" and "Free." Nothing else mattered to them.

I doubt we will ever recover from all the damage that has been done by this President and his hand picked crew of Chicago thugs.

Dear Mike,

Yes, there are those who are all too happy to take whatever big government will hand them. In their case, Obama is their guy. But then there are the people with loads of money who still support him. These fools are just plain stupid. Then there are tons of people who just don't give a damn about any of this. They are stupid to, because they will regret their indifference and apathy one day.

I believe we are now divided into two groups. Those who have joined the Washington circus and share in the wealth, and the rest of us. I also believe that many in Congress are now nothing but pawns and play the game exactly as they are told to do. They also share in the wealth.

Individuals and Corporations don't donate huge sums of money to Politicians and expect nothing in return. Politicians don't spend a couple million of their own money to get reelected unless they know they will at least double their money.

Unfortunately they feel we are too stupid to see what is really going on in government, and sadly, many of us are too stupid.

tsadjatko 19 months ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door

Right on Mike, but it isn't that they "feel" we are too stupid. They "know" many of us are too stupid because they have engineered the system, the education system and the welfare state to produce that result, a dumbed down, uninformed electorate whose votes can be bought with media lies and distortions and cradle to grave dependence on government. America is no longer the home of the Brave and the land of the Free but the home of the Knaves and the land of Free-bies.

This is why you see Democrats often putting out blatant lies about their opponents and policies. They "know" the stupid among us will hear and believe these things and ignore the truth or retractions and therefore have a reason to do what the left wants them to do, vote how they want them to vote, it's all about manipulation and power, not ever what is best for the country.

Good Morning Mike,

Our world has been turned upside down. There has always been corruption in government. There have always been people in Congress who take bribes and are willing to sell their soul to the highest bidder. Now we have a Congress that doesn't function at all. Laws are broken and they sit idly by. The President exceeds the authority given to him in the Constitution and Congress sits idly by. It was just announced that Hilary conducted all her business as Sec. of State by private e-mail. This is a clear violation of the law. Will it stop her from running? Probably not. .. See you at the Inn and please lock the door behind you.

I do not want to see a nuclear Iran at all. Why 10 years into the future, I wonder? Will the Administration be living on Mars at that time in the Mars One 2025 deal?

Even though many additional older folks will have died by that time and miss the fireworks, kids the age of Obama's children and younger will have to face potential nuclear disaster and I think the only disaster worse is North Korea and its dangerous posturing with nukes, Gatling guns, Blunderbusses, the corn cobs he feeds the people, or whatever Kim Jung Un is using. What about these kids?

I'd think the President and everyone would want to protect the children and I hope he changes his mind about Iran and very soon. He asked Congress for ground troops to fight the Islamic State and I can only hope he plans to defeat Iran and take its enriched uranium before it can manufacture its nuclear weapons. I hope it does not take 10 years.

Nice Beetle you have!

Dear Patty,

The fact that Obama is negotiating wiIran in the first place is incredibly alarming. I think it is absolutely disgusting that Obama and those idiot Dems refused to listen to Netanyahu. What a complete embarrasment! Of course, Obama is very good at insulting heads of state. For the first time in six years I was proud of Congress. See you at the Inn.


Hxprof 19 months ago from Clearwater, Florida

We're dealing with an extraordinarily evil man who does indeed hate this country. He'll give Iran what it wants with no thought about stability in the Mid East or the security of Israel. And for what it's worth, I believe Iran already has one or two nukes; certainly not enough to initiate a war, but enough to make an invader pay dearly. They probably got the nuke from an old Soviet state or though some other black market deal. However, they don't currently have the ability to MAKE nukes.

What is scarier yet is that previous estimates, 4-5 years ago, projected that Iran could have a nuke in 3-5 years! Those estimates were wrong, and Iran seems to have slowed down anyway, but their capacity to produce weapons-grade uranium has continued to improve, even though at a slower pace. Point is that with this "deal" the US is making with Iran, that country will be able to produce nukes in a much smaller window of time than 10 years, and Israel knows this. We'll see a nuclear war over there in the near future.


tsadjatko profile image

tsadjatko 19 months ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door

in WW2 the US warned Japan of what we could do to them but Japan didn't believe we had such a weapon. We used it and that was the end of their threat to world peace and their quest for world domination. What do you think Iran would do if a coalition of countries all agreed to nuking an Iranian city, or two unless they agreed to end their support of terrorism world wide and their quest for nuclear weapons.? Japan didn't know we had the bomb, Iran knows we have it. Do you think Iran would think we were bluffing?

Rather than play their games of negotiating and cheating, hoping they don't get a bomb as they get closer and closer to it every day we need to lay it on the line and do what needs to be done. Eventually they will get it and kill millions of people as they plainly state they plan to do and then we will have to use our bombs, so why wait?

It's time to show them we mean business, of course they know Obama would only be bluffing. We need someone they fear to give them that ultimatum, someone like Netanyahu, and I'd bet they'd capitulate if the global powers backed him and no bomb would have to be used...or else use it.

Good Morning Hxprof,

Netanyahu was brilliant and on point. This marks the first time in 6 years that I didn't have to run to the television to turn it off. Of, course, i was utterly repulsed this morning when I read that Obama dismissed Bebe's speech as theater. I imagine it nearly destroyed Obama to hear that Netanyahu got a welcome worthy of a leader. Obama is an embarrassment and a danger and the Prime Minister knows that. Shame on every fool in Congress who refused to attend the speech. I can only surmise that they forgot they are supposed to be representing voters and not themselves. Then again, I guess I shouldn't be surprised when fools behave foolishly. See you at the Inn

Good Morning tsadjatko,

A scenario like that will never occur with Obama or an Obama act alike in the WH. The man is incompetent, uniformed, angry and juvenile. I believe that Obama wants all the evil guys to like him, which explains why he made that disgusting statement about Netanyahu to some idiot from Russia. Obama is placing the Middle East on the edge of destruction, particularly Israel. He knows that, of course, and it is just fine with him. See you at the Inn.


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 19 months ago from Rural Arizona

I saw where Pelosi found it horrifying that Netanyahu would dare imply that Obama was on the wrong path. I personally thought this was one of the best speeches I have ever seen, and I have seen a bunch.

Perhaps Obama resented the applause and standing ovations by people his handlers hadn't paid to be there. It was a real treat to hear a speech by a true leader rather than watching Obama reading a speech off a teleprompter.

I pray that someday we will have a leader with the qualities demonstrated by Netanyahu. It has been a long time since this country has had a real leader.


breakfastpop profile image

Dear Mike,

Pelosi is a hypocritical fool. She was up on her feet applauding like crazy and then she had the nerve to blast the speech. Will we ever be free of all the morons?

I would bet a steak dinner that many who refused to attend the speech were watching it live on TV. I'll bet another steak dinner that many of them wish they had thought it over better and had attended.

But of course their refusal to attend was to demonstrate their loyalty to and worship of Obama and their party. Your right, there should be recall petitions circulating for all of them who refused to attend.


breakfastpop profile image

breakfastpop 19 months ago Author

Dear Mike,

I am sure they were watching and I hope that at least some of them felt sick about their childish decision. If Obama had watched he would have thrown something at the tv and stormed out of the room. I wish we could recall every idiot in Washington. The town would be empty!


tsadjatko profile image

tsadjatko 19 months ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door

I heard the ones who didn't attend were all far left representatives and senators. Their comments afterward certainly demonstrate how out of touch with reality they are, it reminds me of the Democrat politicians in Wisconsin who left the state so they could stop a vote on legislation. These people, like Pelosi and KY's Yarmuth are conniving cowards, totally out of touch with reality, conniving because they totally misrepresented the tone and substance of Netanyahu's speech and cowards because they have no backbone to embrace the truth and stand up to der F├╝hrer like their colleague Menendez does. I hope the democrat voters are very proud of their (minority) elected representatives.

Nancy Pelosi......What a joke......a pathetic old lady who has no more business in serious Politics than my 3 yr-old great granddaughter. Nancy makes a Total A$$ of herself every single time she opens her mouth.

I recall watching her speak on TV when the infamous Obamacare was merely being discussed & (explained?).....It was a Q&A with a large room full of people. I watched with 4 members of my family & what was very clear was that we all listened intently & focused on her answers (bullcrap)......glancing at one another every few minutes with "confusion" written all over our faces.

When it was over....my nephew turned off the TV and asked, "Anybody here willing to explain to the rest of us WHAT THE HELL THAT MORON JUST SAID??" All we got from an hrs. worth of Q&A was a really good laugh.
