8:09 pm
terrorists sponsoring iranian mullahs. believed in god and exercised our second amendment bitter. if we didn't believe in open, unsecured borders and vetting came into this country we were un-american. we believed in protecting unborn baby girls from being killed simply because they're we were waging war on women. mr. obama was also fond of using politically correct constantly using them to distort nearly every issue. our embassy in yemen was a reduction in staff. attacks are, quote, man-caused disasters. global war on terror is operations.tingency islamic terrorist murdering 13 american soldiers is work place violence.

8:13 pm
consistently expressed more open than he didd israel an rd iran for building entire nuclear effort to someday hreaten the world. i'm going to say that again, mr. speaker. as president, mr. obama blatantly refused to even israel as israel's capital. rere-- he refused to acknowledge heusalem as israel's capital consistently expressed more open rebuke toward israel for its capital s in city than he expressed for iran's efforts to build nuclear with which to existentially threaten israel along with the peace and of the entire human family. in the political safety of his lame ducking he orchestrated and a resolution that undermines israel's very right to exist. it was a cowardly act of political treachery that
8:14 pm
united states and it will send barack obama's name down the corridor of history as overt traitor to the state of israel. council security quartet meets on january 15 and united nations security council meets on january 17, i barackely concerned that obama will overturn u.s. precedent going back to lyndon opportunity se the to stab israel in the back one allowing anti-se se mites at the u.n. to attempt israel to e map of indefensible pre1967 borders, would leave eaker, the world's only jewish state less than nine miles wide. mr. speaker, no government greater any responsibility than that of protecting the innocent. stood by and allowed not only isis, boko
8:15 pm
russia, and syria, but also planned parenthood to desecrate the innocent on a horrific scale. to dent barack obama went great effort against taxpayers' wishes to give billions of planned dollars to parenthood to expand abortion on demand in america and throughout world and to proactively romote policies to allow the indiscriminate killing of these, the most defenseless of all human beings. appointed an he empire and rad -- of radically and bortion judges government bureaucrats. when he was in the state legislature, barack obama voted no four times on a bill that would have protected after they were born alive. in the u.s. senate mr. obama voted no op a bill that would have prohibited someone from a minor child out of state for an abortion without

8:17 pm
if it ever reached his desk. mr. speaker, could not the president have agreed that little human babies who survive are born alive ?hould be protected president barack obama's record clear. al for his entire political life, he's strongly supported the full legalization of abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy, for any , including o reason sex selection throughout all pregnancy and forcing american taxpayers to pay for t, whether the taxpayers liked it or not. under barack obama, nearly nine million innocent, defenseless little american babies were ever saw thee they first smile of their mother. president obama was in the unique position perhaps among all other presidents in this country ng together to protect these helpless little children. most powerful human being in the world, mr. obama
