"During the course of administration, and in order to disturb it, the artillery of the press has been leveled against us, charged with whatsoever its licentiousness could devise or dare. These abuses of an institution so important to freedom and science are deeply to be regretted, inasmuch as they tend to lessen its usefulness and to sap its safety." —Thomas Jefferson (1805)

future of naval aviation and she will

0-45

serve as a cornerstone of our national

0-48

defense for decades and decades to come

0-51

a famous aviator once wrote that to

0-54

build a truly great ship we shouldn't

0-57

begin by gathering wood cutting boards

1-00

for distributing work but instead by

1-03

awakening within the people a desire for

1-07

the vast and endless sea so true in the

1-11

same way we must continue to renew the

1-14

American spirit in order to rebuild our

1-17

country and we build it we will on

1-21

tuesday before a joint session to

1-23

Congress I laid out of version i hope

1-26

you all watched for how to accomplish

1-29

that national rebuilding my vision

1-33

includes the elimination of the defense

Guardsmen the tools equipment resources

1-47

and training they need to get the job

done and get it done right especially in

2-01

85,000 meant since 2009 and we have over

2-06

18,000 fewer active-duty Marines

2-11

Air Force it's the smallest it's been

2-14

since 1947 and their planes are on

2-19

average nearly 30 years old if you can

2-23

believe that our Navy sleep is the

2-26

smallest it's been since world war one

2-29

and that's a long time ago

2-32

frontline navy and marine strike fighter

2-34

aircraft are more likely to be down for

2-36

maintenance than to be in the sky we

2-39

cannot afford to continue down this path

2-42

my budget will give America's armed

2-45

forces the resources they need to

2-47

achieve full and total military

2-49

preparedness to meet any and all global

2-53

challenges and meet them we will

2-57

investing in peace because the best way

3-03

to prevent war as George Washington said

3-07

is to be prepared for it

3-10

3-13

the military is an investment in the

3-14
