"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)

0:06well thank you mister speaker

0:07mister speaker we've heard a great deal

0:10about protocol this last week

0:13and all centers around the invitation by

0:17the speaker this house to the Prime Minister of Israel

0:21to come and speak to the body

0:24as he has done twice before it's worth

0:29mister speaker that BB netanyahu

0:33is one of the most precious voices that we have in the entire world

0:37to address summer the subjects as some other dangers that face the united

0:41states of america

0:42and yet this administration is caught up

0:46in a conundrum over protocol while it might be worth reminding

0:51this administration that ours is a government made up up three equal

0:54branches

0:55is even more important to remind this administration

0:58that when Iran his pursuing a nuclear weapons capability with which to

1:04threaten the peace and security the entire world

1:06but I sis and groups like it

1:09are slaughtering people the world over when I sis's crucifying

1:13and and killing and torturing people in Iraq when they're

1:17burning their prisoners alive in cages

1:21this administration is caught up in protocol

1:25mister speaker that is a profound

1:30distortion a priority and yet ironically

1:34this administration for all a bit stalker protocol

1:38not only violated protocol when it traded

1:42five Taliban leaders for sergeant Bob Bergdahl

1:45it broke the law itself mister speaker this administration has repeatedly

1:51sought to unconstitutionally usurp the powers of the legislative branch

1:55by brash Fiat it chooses to listen to this

1:59mysterious voice but those who did not vote

2:03in our nation's election its constitutional overreaches

2:08evidenced by cuba immigration and Obamacare

2:11and a number of others but if if we just put that let me aside for a moment

2:15and just consider the arrogance that this administration as it comes now to

2:19proclaim

2:20to proclaim that the speaker this house

2:23has somehow broken protocol by inviting the Prime Minister

2:27of our most vital ally on earth to on

2:31this floor worse mister speaker

2:35it has sought to go after and silence

2:38the guest speaker himself

2:41hearing official rhetoric up this white house one would think our speaker

2:45had invited the Prime Minister up and enemy nation

2:48instead of one of our best friends on the planet mister speaker unfortunately

2:53this administration's claims

2:55a breach protocol are an attempt to overshadow

2:59the real elephants in the room and truth itself

3:02the actual outrage here is not about

3:05the israeli elections as some might say it is not about

3:09the doomed diplomatic overtures have this administration

3:12the real crisis and the real threat is a nuclear-capable

3:16Iran and prime minister netanyahu with the greatest credentials on

3:20earth related to this thread in coming to speak to all of us

3:24is acting as a trusted ally should

3:27act and I hope this minute administration and this congress

3:31and the american people will listen to him very

3:34carefully the true problem here mister speaker

3:37is that an outspoken enemy of our nation wanted that is

3:41indeed be leading state sponsor

3:44of global Islamic terrorism is actively pursuing

3:48nuclear weapons that could create the gravest threats to United States

3:52Israel and the entire free world how quickly we forget

3:58that Iran considers United States of America the quote Great Satan

4:02how quickly we forget that last year on November 4th Iran

4:06once again celebrated death to America day

4:09commemorating the 1979 seizure

4:12up the United States embassy how quickly we forget

4:16that death to America is the rallying cry

4:19up hezbollah for which it and and it's been backed by Iran

4:24and launched attacks on Israel just last week killian wounded

4:28good killing and wounding good man

4:31we forget that one if Iran stated goals is quote wiping Israel

4:36off the map how quickly we forget that Iran collaborates

4:39with US anti-u_s_ regimes in South America and is actively seeking to

4:44exploit

4:45our borders and course this administration's complete an attention

4:49to them

4:49how quickly we forget that Iran continues to cooperate

4:53with north korea in the development long-range

4:56missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads

4:59to the United States of America mister speaker is this

5:04administration show naive or were so arrogant as to believe that we can have

5:09any type of credible diplomatic agreement with the leadership

5:13of such a regime I think it's embarrassing mister speaker the United

5:18States of America

5:19that this supposed breach of protocol has somehow permitted this

5:23administration

5:24through anonymous yet somehow authoritative sources

5:28to politically threatened the elected leader of our only

5:32democratic ally in the region

5:35calling him names in the media and being victim indicative

5:38in its every interaction with him yet know this

5:41sailed for the administration's wounded ego has for the interest the United

5:46States

5:46one I oda ultimately it has

5:49only diminished America's national security and israel's right

5:53to defend urself mister speaker there are unfortunately

5:57only three things that will prevent Iran

6:01from eventually gaining nuclear weapons one

6:05is a fundamental change other regime in Iran

6:09to a direct military action

6:13to destroy their capability to build nuclear weapons capability

6:17or finally mister speaker the conviction in the mines

6:21up the leadership in Iran though the jihadist leadership in Iran

6:25that military action will occur if that capability

6:30is not Desmet mister speaker indifference

6:34cowardice diplomacy call it what you will but in the end

6:39ignorance whether intentional or unintentional is not a viable

6:43alternative to the truth

6:44%uh along with so many others in this body

6:47mister speaker and really in america itself I have every conviction

6:52that when Prime Minister Netanyahu speaks on the threat that Iran's pursuit

6:56of nuclear weapons in its sponsorship of terrorism

6:58poses to global security he will be speaking the truth

7:02and once again for the sake of America for Israel

7:06for the free world I pray that we all listen

7:10very carefully thank you mister speaker
