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.
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.
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.
Fly me to the moon
And let me live
Where I am free
This president of ours
Has us hanging from a tree!
