Iran Has a Friend in America

Buzzy is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Thursday, July 9, 2015. Our busy friend, Fly Buzzy, is here with me at the breakfast table. He just did a fly-by of the negotiations (HA) with Iran and he has returned with his perspective on the situation. Buzzy is preparing blueberry pancakes for breakfast which he will be serving with real maple syrup. I will be brewing up a batch of Irish coffees to warm things up. Please join us as soon as you can.

Playing With Fire

Thank you all for joining me this morning. I buzzed in on the faltering and embarrassing nuclear talks with Iran, and I left there feeling sick to my stomach. The false deadlines that were imposed, keep getting moved back. There are no red lines here at all. Why in the world we are engaged in talks with the world's leading sponsor of terror is anyone's guess. I am thinking that President Obama has a definite need to reach out to the worst of the worst and make them like him. His goal here is very personal. He wants to leave office completing the transformation of the United States from a world power to a hobbled nation afraid to act when action is needed. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said this was a bad deal. He was right, of course, but President Obama doesn't give a damn about Bebe or Israel, so the talks will continue.

Steadfastly Unreasonable

Iran has stuck to their untenable position from the very beginning of these pointless talks. They absolutely refuse any terms that appear to be reasonable. This should come as no surprise to any sane thinking individual. Either President Obama and John Kerry are insane or they want Iran to develop nuclear weapons. Many people assume that they already have a weapon, and that shouldn't surprise anyone. If they don't already possess a weapon, they will shortly and President Obama will have his name written all over it. A nuclear Iran changes everything in the Middle East. Israel will be at risk. Past experience with President Obama and Netanyahu show, quite clearly, that the president wouldn't lose any sleep if Israel disappeared tomorrow.

Iran Wins

As if we don't already look weak in the eyes of the world, President Obama has once again backed away from a key aspect of this bad deal. The deal depended upon Iran's truthfulness about their past history when it comes to nuclear development. Iran refused this request, and John Kerry jumped in to say that the Obama administration was willing to forgo this demand. Then Iran demanded that the sanctions be removed immediately and entirely, and once again the administration said that was just fine. I can only suppose that whatever Iran wants Iran gets. These bogus negotiations represent a massive victory for Iran. The world doesn't want or need a nuclear Iran. This bad deal won't do a thing to stop it.

A Presidential Legacy

These negotiations appear to be really important to this president who thinks he's king. He wants to leave office with an Iranian deal under his belt, because it will appear to be historic. Of course, the correct word is disastrous, but President Obama is a legend in his own mind. He destroyed our healthcare and the worst is yet to come. He will say he reformed healthcare for all Americans. He trashed the Constitution on so many levels. He will say he interpreted it in light of more modern times. He opened our borders and allowed killers in. He will say that America is safer than ever. He has weakened our military and left us powerless to defend ourselves against ISIS. He will say that he is doing just fine in that area. Unbelievably, at a town hall meeting, President Obama puffed up his chest and told the audience that "today, once again, the United States is the most respected country on earth." If he believes this he is out of his mind. If he is lying, it is par for the course. The truth is that the world is laughing at us. I hope we get the last laugh, but it doesn't seem likely.

Buzzy's Song

Fly me to the moon

And let me live

Where I am free

This president of ours

Has us hanging from a tree!

I can find no reason to have talks with Iran with respect to nuclear weapons. So, when Iran uses nuclear weapons Obumma can say with pride, "I did that". Wow! What a guy. And, the same idiots that brought you Obumma will bring you Hilary. What a future we have!

Good Morning taxlarry,

Okay...I'm really down in the dumps now. I think I'll pack up and head for the Inn.

Nothing to add to what you said. How much more destructive can this President get?

Dear Mike,

He still has time to bring us all down a little further. His mentors and string pullers must be pleased. Head for the Inn.

I don't claim to know all of the politics involved with foreign policy, but I do know history, and that history tells me we cannot trust any of the mideast nations. Iran...Iraq Saudi....to me they are trouble from the word go and always will be. Cut ties completely...that would be my foreign policy...and then a warning sign...screw with us and you will pay.

Dear billy,

Iranians are past masters at wheeling and dealing from their old trading days, while Obama and Kerry are rank novices. Obama is so determined to be the hero who made the deal with Iran that he's willing to give them the store in exchange for a deal...any deal.

Iran is simply playing delay defense because its real goal is a nuclear weapon, and they could not care less about a 'deal' with America.

Another very profound Hub, Pop!

Good MorningWill,

President Obama is behaving like a naive baby in a deadly serious game. We don't need a deal, we need to stop playing into Iran's hands. With Obama in the WH, that day will never come. He is not finished with us yet. By the time he leaves office, our military will be decimated, Iran will have a weapon and the US will be a laughing stock. See you at the Inn.

Just saw on the news where the Military plans to cut up to 40,000 from the Army due to budget concerns. Wouldn't it be smarter to cut free cell phones than our Army?

I am no politico, but I believe that what billybuc (Bill Holland) has pontificated is to be what I would embrace.

As for President Obama desiring to leave office with historic legacies, I agree that he as well as others have wanted the same. Why not? And particularly, an African American would want that even more. Not all things done by the present and past presidents, and any human agency is all bad. We must be fair and see some of the good.

Regarding health insurance policy, at one time pre-existing conditions precluded us from obtaining insurance. Young adults with no job could not get health insurance, but now, currently can through their parents.

Is everything in Obamacare great? No. Nothing in life is a panacea.

However, revisiting your present hub before us, the mideast is a cauldron that bubbles, always on the verge of an eruption. Israel is an important ally that we need to support. I pray that good sense is chosen in reverence over narcissism.

Like anything else, a presidential election is upon us, and a paradigm shift is inevitable.

RobinGrosswirth23 - I fear if we stacked up all the plus's and minus's regarding Obamacare, the minus's would win. Yes, covering pre-existing conditions is a good thing, but employees being cut to 30 or less hours per week is a very bad thing. Yes, young adults being covered on their parents policy is a good thing, but higher deductibles and steady increases in the cost of medical insurance is a bad thing.

Bottom line is I think our medical insurance problems could have been fixed in a much cheaper and more effective manner.

But this hub is not about Obamacare and I apologize to Breakfastpop.

Can't add anything to what you've said here Pop except that I agree with those who "think" Iran has a nuke. They way they've talked in the past, their confidence, not bravado, convinces me without a doubt that the Iranians have the bomb. However, they can't yet produce a nuke. Obummer is going to change that, and as Iran cruises along towards being nuclear capable Israel will have to act.

Good Morning Mike,

Smart never enters into the picture with this administration. This is just further proof that Obama and his mentors plan on leaving our country crippled from every angle. Thanks to a do nothing Congress they are succeeding. See you at the Inn.

Good Morning Robin,

Yes, every president is interested in their legacy, but for Obama his dreams and aspirations are not int the best interests of our country. Obamacare has a few good points , but overall it is awful. I still know so many people who simply can't afford coverage. Our ERs are exploding with patients and rates are going to climb. Obamacare is no panacea. This deal with Iran is a nightmare. Our treatment of Israel is deplorable and unprecedented. Our military is getting smaller by the minute and we have no foreign policy. Our allies no longer trust us and our enemies are laughing. If Hillary wins in 2016 we can expect rough times. See you at the Inn.

Good Morning Hxprof,

I agree. It will be Israel who makes a move. Certainly, Obama has no interest in protecting our ally. See you at the Inn.

I'm surprised he was allowed to get away with calling this a negotiation! When one party gives the other one whatever they want with nothing being given back it's usually called a bad marriage.

Not surprised that Obama wants to hop into bed with the Middle East. The divorce could get nasty though.

I'm SO GLAD you made Irish Coffee. See you at the inn! ( it's been a while.)

Good Morning surely,

I am so happy to see you at the breakfast table. As for these bogus "negotiations", you're right this is more like a marriage made in hell. See you at the Inn.

Just heard on the news, bp, that Iran's president is making a speech at 1pm. He has been a critic since Day One of the negotiations so I doubt that his speech will be good news for the U.S. When will our (?) leaders wake up and realize that they cannot negotiate with a nation that wants to wipe us off the face of the earth?

Good Morning dr,

We'll learn when we put people in Washington who truly love America, have experience and morals and the courage to tell the truth. See you at the Inn.

The deal's done. It's a deal that won't keep Iran from obtaining the ability to produce nukes, and apparently that wasn't a big deal for Obummer.

I've seen that some have suggested this is about as good as we could have hoped for. The reasoning being that the sanctions were going to come unraveled eventually, and that the Iranian government would have been able to wait it out. Meanwhile, Iran was pressing towards nuclear capacity even with current sanctions in place. And the other option of course is simply to go to war with Iran to stop them - an option that many experts (nonpartisan) believe would have been horrible for the Middle East.

IMO Pop, both these assessments have merit and might be accurate. Evenso, Iran clearly wanted the sanctions lifted - if THEY thought the sanctions were going to come unravelled soon, they probably wouldn't have cared about reaching a deal with the US. Any thoughts?

Buzzy's song is far from the happy song that Sinatra sang. Meet you at the Inn and I say we talk Billy Buc into throwing his hat in the ring.

Good Morning Hyprox,

It's a bad deal and it never should have been agreed to. I can't remember any time inhibitory that that Israel and the Arab countries were in agreement. They are now, because Iran will lead the way to a nuclear Middle East. The Iranians get to have the sanctions removed and we get to ask permission to see what they are up to. After a 2 or 3 week waiting period we get to go in. That is a very bad joke. Israel will have to do something to insure its survival. See you at the Inn.

Good Morning Minnetonka Twin,

I think Billy would prefer to be on his urban farm, away from the maddening crowd. I'll meet you at the Inn.

One thing I have learned from living in the desert country is you just can't tame a rattlesnake. They will not honor anything they agreed to and they will bite given the opportunity.

This agreement is a huge mistake but Obama scores another point for his cherished legacy.

Good Morning Mike,

I just wrote about this very thing this morning. The deal is historic, historically bad! See you at the Inn.

Iran has broken every treaty it has ever signed, but I'm sure this time it will be different.

Yeah, right.

Good Morning Will,

Iran just got the green light to triple its effort at terror in the Middle East and around the globe. That's Obama's legacy! See you at the Inn.
