What does the U.S. get out of the nuclear treaty with Iran?

What happened this weekend?  Why would I be holding a black umbrella?  Anybody who knows who Neville Chamberlain is, he used to like to hang out with a black umbrella all the time.  What did Neville Chamberlain do?  Oh, nothing, just negotiated peace in his day with Adolf Hitler.

In fact, this is the now suddenly wet copy of his letter to the Hitler youth, signed by Neville Chamberlain, saying you know what, peace in our day, it’s great.  It’s wonderful.  Really?  So who’s the Neville Chamberlain of our day?  Well, somebody that doesn’t understand that negotiation can be tough.  Sometimes you don’t always get what you want, but you know, there’s some sort of compromise involved, unless you’re a dictatorship from Iran, and you’re negotiating with this administration.  Then the world is your oyster, you know?

You get like…it’s like a massive all-expenses-paid shopping spree to the mall of your choice.  Let’s see, I know, I want to be able to keep most of my nuclear infrastructure – check.  I want to be able to continue enriching uranium – check.  I want to have the UN inspectors come in but only on the buildings that I approve – check.  I also am demanding that the economic sanctions are lifted – check.

What exactly did we get?  I mean, the only thing they, you know, didn’t get was explicit permission and blessing to wipe Israel off the map.  Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute, there’s another one I forgot to tell you about – really?  Would you be surprised?  One could argue that blowing up Israel is implied in this outcome.

It was a very good deal for Iran.  In fact, Iran loves this deal.  And Iran loves the deal, but so does Syria.  Syria loves this deal.  Who else?  Russia, they love this deal.  Hmm, those seem like the bad guys.

Now, who doesn’t like this deal?  Well, there’s Saudi Arabia and Israel, and well, me.  Netanyahu in fact told his cabinet that what was achieved in Geneva was not a historic agreement but a historic mistake.  Oh, I’m sorry, is somebody talking about Neville Chamberlain again?  The world has become a much more dangerous place, because the most dangerous regime in the world has taken a significant step towards attaining the most dangerous weapons in the world.

Now, what is the upside for the United States of America?  What did John Kerry get us in this deal?  Well, he is kind of like the Lando Calrissian of negotiators.  Remember him?  Where Darth Vader comes in, and he says I’m altering the deal, pray I don’t alter it any further.  Remember that scene?  That’s kind of where we are.

The president spun it this way.  Listen carefully.


President Obama:  For the first time in nearly a decade, we have halted the progress of the Iranian nuclear program.  The key parts of the program will be rolled back.

Stop, stop, stop.  What his teleprompter is telling him to say – notice he’s carefully reading that.  There’s nobody in the room, and he’s still looking on – anyway, he said we have halted the progress.  I’m sorry, what?  We have halted the progress.  Halted the progress?

So what you’re saying, Mr. President, is a really misleading way to describe that a deal has been struck that allows Iran to continue enriching uranium, and the big accomplishment is that Iran can’t increase the amount of production.  Oh, as if they’re re going to follow that rule if they I’m altering the deal – remember that part?

Iran is giddy over this steel.  The Ayatollah is celebrating a huge victory.  In fact, he said, “The new government was able to legitimize the Iranian nation’s nuclear program on the international stage and take the initial step in a way that the nuclear rights and the enrichment rights of the Iranian nation are acknowledged by world powers which for years had tried to deny it.”  That’s fantastic.  Let’s come back to that, should we?

Iranian negotiators were welcomed home over the weekend as national heroes.  Their currency jumped 3%.  If you want to look at the scoreboard, Iran’s winning, and it’s a landslide.  What does it tell you when the crazy men from Iran are closer to telling people the truth than our own president?

This deal is a dream come true for Iran.  For ten years, the world has been trying to halt their enrichment programs, not to slow down the progress, halt it.  This system allows them to continue now.  The world finally caved.  We blinked.  And what happened in all of those secret meetings that the Obama administration held in the months prior to the deal?

I don’t think we’ve done these secret meetings since 1979 when Jimmy Carter and Mika Brzezinski’s dad – you remember, she’s the one on MSNBC, you know, with the Morning Joe, yeah, her dad and Jimmy Carter were the ones that…yeah, if I remember right, that didn’t work out so well.  I’m just saying, but here we go again.  Gee, it’s almost like we should learn from the past so we don’t continue making the same mistake over and over again.

So what message does this deal send to other unstable nations like North Korea?  Well, stay the course.  There’s lesson number one.  My jaw dropped when I saw the president actually say this:


President Obama:  We approached these negotiations with a basic understanding, Iran, like any nation should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy.

That is fantastic, isn’t it?  I’m glad we finally have this concession out of the president, because we don’t have the right.  There hasn’t been a new nuclear plant here since 1974 because if we build a new nuclear plant, oh my gosh, the sky will fall.  It’ll be the worst thing ever.  They’re so dangerous.  Wouldn’t it be nice if the president encouraged the increase of nuclear production?

He just says everybody has a right to peaceful nuclear energy, and since, how does he say it, electricity rates have necessarily skyrocketed up 42% in less than a decade, maybe he should get on that nuclear energy bandwagon.  Here’s the other thing, can I ask where are all the environmentalists on the Iran front?

After Fukushima, the world was freaking out about nuclear energy.  You remember?  The death toll from the big fallout is still zero, but Germany and Italy promised to phase out nuclear energy.  Hold on just a second, so the environmentalists are saying that you’re confident that Iran can safely run a nuclear power plant more so than we can?  Suddenly the left is totally cool with nuclear energy?

I mean, why in the world would they trust Iran over Germany, Italy, Japan, and America?  I mean, that’s the logical choice, isn’t it?  This is not a negotiation.  It was never a negotiation.  The administration leaned forward and got railroaded by Iran, and I’m not sure the administration didn’t get everything it wanted.

First of all, it’s off the front page today of people talking about how bad ObamaCare is.

We get nothing, nada, zip, except a crazy nation which is one step closer to obtaining nuclear weapons.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
