Speaker John Boehner Invites Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu to Address Joint Session of Congress Regarding Iran
Let’s give Speaker John Boehner credit, where credit is due … Good for you Boehner, Feels good to do the right thing for America, doesn’t it?
Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH), invites Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress next month on February 11 to discussing Iran, further sanctions against them and the threat that a nuclear Iran poses to the world. Boehner said in a private meeting of GOP lawmakers that Congress would proceed on further penalties against Iran despite Obama’s warning, “[Obama] expects us to stand idly by and do nothing while he cuts a bad deal with Iran. Two words: ‘Hell no!’ We’re going to do no such thing.” It is about time the GOP has stood up to this imperial president. This is why the voters have put in place a Republican House and Senate, to block the far left and dangerous policies and agenda of Barack Obama. This all has to do with Obama threats and threats of a veto if the Congress passes further sanctions against Iran. However, there is wide bi-partisan support in favor of sanctions as Democrats are on board with protected America against Iran.
What is the Obama’s White House issue … a breech of protocol and poking Obama in the eye. Breach of protocol. are you serious? Wasn’t this the same White House that solicited British Prime Minister David Cameron to call US politicians on this very same topic of sanctions against Iran? Isn’t it amazing that Obama and his lackeys are more interested in protocol and Obama’s feelings than US national and world security.
Boehner Invites Netanyahu to Address Congress
“The Congress can make its decision on its own” — but he also insisted, “I don’t believe I’m poking anyone in the eye.”
“There is a serious threat that exists in the world, and the president last night kind of papered over it,” Boehner said.
“And the fact is is that there needs to be a more serious conversation in America about how serious the threat is from radical Islamic jihadists and the threat posed by Iran.”
“Prime Minister Netanyahu is a great friend of our country, and this invitation carries with it our unwavering commitment to the security and well-being of his people,” Boehner said. “In this time of challenge, I am asking the Prime Minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life. Americans and Israelis have always stood together in shared cause and common ideals, and now we must rise to the moment again.”
White House spokesman Josh Earnest responded to the news with the following. Ha, the Obama WH is worried about protocol, maybe they should concern themselves more with the US Constitution.
“The typical protocol would suggest that the leader of a country would contact the leader of another country when he’s traveling there,” said White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. “That certainly is how President Obama’s trips are planned when he travels overseas. This particular event seems to be a departure from that protocol.”
Earnest said the White House was made aware of the invitation before Boehner’s office released a letter dated Jan. 21 inviting Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress on Feb. 11.
