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.

VIDEO

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.

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries
