6:19 pm
quested for representative kaptur. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas, mr. gohmert, is recognized for 60 nutes as the designee of the majority leader. mr. gohmert: news has come out february 2, groundhog's day and this article, entitled, the obama administration has not prosecuted a single palestinian terrorist who killed americans. the obama administration has not prosecuted a single palestinian terrorist responsible for killing americans abroad despite
6:20 pm
a congressional mandate ordering the justice department to take action against these individuals. the palestinian terrorists have murdered at least 64 americans, including two unborn children, since 1993. yet the u.s. government has failed to take legal action against those who committed the crimes and disclosed during a tuesday hearing on the justice department's hearing to bring these terrorists to justice. many of the terrorists continue to roam free with a television show in jordan. with criticism mounting from congress, the justice department officials say they are working to initiate cases, but warned this could take many years to play out.
6:21 pm
justice department has repeatedly declined to comment when faced with questions from congress about the lack of prosecutions, that's according to representative ron desantos of florida, chair of the house oversight committee on national security. the justice department has not been able to cite one example for this committee of even a single terrorist who has been prosecuted in the u.s. for any of the 64 attacks against americans in israel, desantos said. indeed, many of these terrorists remain free. this is not what congress intended when it created the d.o.j.'s office of office of victims of overseas terrorism. this is not what the american
6:22 pm
people want and this does not provide justice to the victims' families that has been so tragically i will louis i have. they have sought to and terrorist response i will for the murder of u.s. citizens. to includes to failure level charges the palestinian woman responsible for blowing up a jerusalem pizza shop. the attacks killed 15. she currently resides in jordan and hosts a television show on a local station. en the oversight committee questions, the department declines to comment.
6:23 pm
it brings into justice the perpetrators of and high priority of the d.o.j., people of this nature should be be persecuted for the crimes. american victims of terrorist acts abroad offered sharp criticism of the justice department for failing to take on terrorists in the u.s. courts. sarah singer, who was injured in bus interror attack on a jerusalem said she has lost faith in the government. singer said i grew up believing that my country would be and protect me no matter where i was in the world. these last years have let me feeling let down. i would incertificate that she shares that same feeling with
6:24 pm
the victims in our state benghazi, the attacks at benghazi and the many hours people waited thinking surely our government will come to our aid. so it sounds like victims of terrorists abroad share this, whether it's from benghazi and whether it's from other terrorist attacks that the administration is not going to be there for you. the article goes on, peter schwartz, whose nephew was shot in the head by palestinian terrorists in november 2015 said the obama administration has not been forth coming about potential investigations. the obama administration was criticized in august when it
6:25 pm
sought to limit the restitution of american victims of terrorism could receive. the administration argued in a legal briefing, issued to the award hat a large cash to these victims could complicate the administration's efforts to foster peace between israel and the palestinians. clearly, the administration's interests, as sarah singer observed, it's not with american victims of foreign terrorism. it's with the foreign terrorists that will saddle up to them enough, maybe if we are nice enough, maybe they won't keep killing american citizens. well, that's false thinking. madam speaker, i can't help but
6:26 pm
think as we find out this week that this administration has the ed $100 billion to largest supporter of terrorism in the world, iran. iran has made clear that once they got this money from the obama administration, that they were going to increase their hamas and rorists by hezbollah. in other words, they told us in advance that are when america $100 an getting extra billion they will be able to help terrorists commit more of their acts of terrorism. back when i was a judge or back years and years ago as a
6:27 pm
prosecutor, we always approached cases that if you assisted somebody, say you gave them money -- and i told you before you gave them the money, that we are going to use some of this money to commit a criminal act, then we always felt like you could prosecute those people and jurors could bear that out. because if you knowingly aid, assist, even encourage, you don't have to give them must be money, but just courage a violent act and they have said, we plan to commit more terrorism with what you give us, then you were an accomplice and under the laws federally and as well as the laws in most states, certainly in texas, you would be charged, as a principal.
6:28 pm
if you gave money to someone knowing that they said we are going to help kill people and help terrorism and they committed to terrorism, you could be convicted of the same terrorism of those you gave the money to help. it's interesting that those principles seem to apply to all other americans, but this administration feels surely they won't apply to this administration. sure, iran has said they are going to support more terrorism once they get all this extra money from the obama administration, but apparently, the obama administration, according to these pleadings they filed, if you just be nice to the terrorists, let them keep their own money, they will quit
6:29 pm
killing americans. but it doesn't work that way. let's look at what this commander in chief's administration is willing to punish. i have a letter here that was sent by my friend, our fellow colleague, duncan hunter, to the chairman of the senate agriculture committee where he discusses sergeant first class charles martland and points out, he is considered a first-rate warrior. while in afghanistan at a remote out post, he confronted and ghanistan local police for kidnapping a young boy and repeatedly raping him. it was brought to the attention of martland and his fellow
6:30 pm
soldiers after the mother's boy asked for help after she was attacked by the afghan local police commander. when martland and danny quinn confronted the rapist, he admitted to the charge and laughed in their faces. at which point martland and quinn took matters in their hands. this took place after two separate civil rights violations, resulting in no punitive action whatsoever. the afghan local police commander was dragged to the perimeter gate and was thrown out. it's important to note that the afghan local police commander eft on his own only to exaggerate his injuries. d authorities who were never
6:31 pm
interviewed by army investigators. for this action, martland was removed and faced repri manned and faced a program review board in 2015. that would be a year ago. the army argued that the black mark on his record that he assaulted a commander is caused despite im from duty he has the full support of his command and leadership. . the inspector general reported to me, and this is a letter from duncan hunter, that personnel are very supportive of the sergeant and his efforts, and he's quoting, to remain in the army. and there continue to be efforts within his command to not inadvertently hamper his efforts. this was in response to an
6:32 pm
alleged gag order put on matterland and his fellow soldiers -- martland and his fellow soldiers. apparently about trying to stop the rapes that were going on in afghanistan. importantly, martland was submitted to -- reported to submit a repeal to the qualitative management program decision after his first appeal was denied, recently a decision within army human resources command recommended the army uphold the judgment that martland be removed from service, although final decision has yet to be made bout his future. madam speaker, we have an american hero in sergeant first class charles martland. dragging a child rapist out of that this d area child rapist was using to be a serial rapist, doing harm to
6:33 pm
children in afghanistan, is an act of heroism, not an act to be condemned. and in fact, courts i'm aware of, certainly juries in texas, would say that was acting in defense of a third person. this man is guilty of nothing. except a heroic act to save children and women from being raped by a corrupt police commander. but under this administration, where we give money to supporters of terrorism, the largest supporters of terrorism in the world, and where we beg courts not to give large reimbursements to victims of terrorism of our own american victims of foreign terrorism, because that might not help, it might make the foreign terrorists mad if they have a
6:34 pm
judgment against them, then it seems like this is perfectly consistent with the policies of this administration. we give money to terrorists who say they're going to use it to support terrorism. we don't give money to victims of terrorism, in fact, this administration should have done what the house passed and implored the administration to do, and that is to make sure that not a dime was allowed to e released to iran until the verdicts outstanding against iran by american victims of iranian terrorism were paid first. but in its haste to get all this money to those who say they're going to use a bunch of -- to support terrorism, the american victims were left in the lurch. it is more than irresponsible.
6:35 pm
it is unconscionable what has been going on. at some point, people in this administration have got to figure out what most of the american people have figured out, and that is, you're not going to stop terrorism by trying to be sweet and kind to the terrorists. you learn that on the -- well some of us learned it on the playground growing up. i guess now that the federal government has control of education to suchen extent that schools are forced -- to such an extent that schools are force fod teach to the test -- forced to teach to the test. elementary schools have had to do away with recess because they don't have time. they have to teach them to the test so that we'll get that federal money and we can stay open. and f you allow recess
6:36 pm
kids are on the playground and you have kids that were smaller like i was, you learned. you're not going to stop bullying by giving your money to a bully. if you give a bully money, not only do they not respect you, they have more contempt and it encourages their bullying. you can't do that. you have to stand up to bullying and you find out when you do that, sometimes you'll have a teacher like my fifth grade teacher that took up for the bullies. but you will ultimately find more teachers will not tolerate that kind of conduct. but this administration never learned that. maybe there is no chance to learn that in the young schools in indonesia. maybe that's why we have a commander in chief that thinks
6:37 pm
we should reward the terrorists, the supporters of terrorism, and punish the victims of terrorism by not letting them have proper financial restitution. but it is tragic what's going on. t is tragic. number of stories about sergeant martland, including from my friend, jay seculo. he said, for his actions he was immediately pulled from the battlefield and this decorated war hero is now facing expulsion from the military. this administration's priorities are so completely out of step with truth, justice and the american way. what used to be the american way. perhaps the american way has been fundamentally transformed
6:38 pm
in the last seven years. so now the american way has become that we helped terrorists give them money and we punish those who are victims. well, of course we know that our secretary of state thanked iran for their activities. i haven't heard whether or not secretary of state kerry has thanked iran for this latest story, this from foxnews.com. but iran's supreme leader awards medals to the troops that captured the u.s. sailors. the story says, iran's supreme leader has awarred medal to the five of the iranian navy whom he said captured intruding u.s. navy sailors during a texans incident in january -- tense incident in january.
6:39 pm
i was told khamenei awarded the medal to the head of the navy of the revolutionary guards, and four commanders who seize the two u.s. navy vessels, according to reuters. iran's state media reported the news on sunday. the given -- the order given by chief commander of armed forces to irgc navy command rts who captured intrude -- commanders who captured intruding u.s. marines, and in a tweet from his account sunday, khomeini misidentified those who were captured as being members of the marines. but on january 12, iran captured 10 sailors whose boat, quote, misnavigated, unquote, into iranian waters, according to defense secretary ash carter. though the sailors were released the following day, iran released video of the sailors being captured, detained and apologizing for
6:40 pm
the incursion. though iran initially accused the sailors of spying, it was later said an investigation established sailors were led astray by a broken navigation system. sailors were attempting to navigate from kuwait to bahrain when they crossed into iranian waters. well, you know, madam speaker, we got satellites that could show exactly what happened. and i would think that if this administration wanted to defend our sailors, they would show the satellite footage of where they were and we'd be able to see for sure whether or not they did cross into iranian waters. but consistent with these reports and stories we've already looked at this evening, it seems if they're going to act consist went this administration's priorities -- prior axes -- consistent with
6:41 pm
this administration's prior actions, this administration wouldn't want to embarrass the iranian military, the supporters of terrorism, and so we wouldn't want to show that , so we won't show by satellite footage exactly where our sailors were. and we won't show exactly where our other naval vessels were. these were reported to be small vessels, you don't have small navy vessels unless they are near much larger navy vessels. and normally if they're larger navy vessels, there are other small vessels that can go rather quickly. and if you have the navy vessels there, there's a good chance there's a carrier nearby, an air strip, where jets could be there in no time whatsoever. and it used to be, under other commanders in chief, not this
6:42 pm
one, but other commanders in hief, that if we had sailors who were in danger of being captured by a country, particularly the largest supporter of terrorism in the world, our jets would be put in the air, they would get there immediately, they would keep flying overhead, and protecting those sailors until the navy itself could get there to rescue them. for some reason, this administration thought it was a tter idea not to put our aircraft in the air, kind of reminisce ebt of benghazi, we're -- reminiscent of benghazi, we're not going to send aircraft that could have been there in minutes. heck, i was asking a former commander of ramstein air force base clear up in germany, he didn't realize where i was
6:43 pm
going when i asked, how long would it take, say, to get to north africa from ramstein? and he said, about three, 3 1/2 hours at most. so could you have been at benghazi in 3 1/2 hours? well, we had ordinants on the planes and that particular evening and it would have take an while to recon figure those. well, if you can get clear from ramstein air force base to benghazi in three, 3 1/2 hours top, we got planes a whole lot closer to where these navy vessels were. they should have been able to be there in minutes. but i'm sure some commander, some admiral that's afraid of the commander in chief would never admit that, not these days, but the fact is this once oud united states military protected its own for the last 70 years. and now it calls upon the largest supporter of terrorism
quote
6:44 pm
to come get our sailors and to have them kneel on their knees, hands behind their heads, as if they're p.o.w.'s, embarrass them to the maximum, and for that secretary of state kerry thanked iran. well, madam speaker, i see my friend from nebraska's here and i would like to yield to my friend such time as he may consume. >> mr. speaker, let me thank the gentleman from texas for yielding. i want to point out something about mr. gohmert. he was speaking about our military a moment ago. he himself is a veteran. served in the united states army during the vietnam war and i appreciate your service. mr. speaker, i wanted also to share something with the body
6:45 pm
today. i write a weekly report generally called the fort report and this week i sent one that i had hoped would have broader meaning to the house of representatives and perhaps anyone else who might encounter this. mr. fortenberry: it's entitled, nebraska values. mr. speaker, stories about america's political and economic and cultural crises, as we all know, they're dominating the headlines across our nation. dissatisfaction ad there is ith the status quo against the ridlock that has been in washington, d.c.,. challenges, ce politicians have divisive
6:46 pm
hetoric instead of empathy and it is exhausting to america's spirit and it is distracting us from the possibilities that are before us. and in the midst of this season ous presidential it is time to change subject and celebrate some of the best examples that our country has to offer. nebraska,-town gym in the community recently gathered to celebrate the life of joseph limb. while deep sadness, they told stories and horpped this remarkable man and pointed to a much deeper understanding of the values that bind us.
6:47 pm
joe, chose to put on three different uniforms, first by enlisting in the united states air force after high school and went on to have a career with the new york city police epartment and finally with the new york air national guard. he served three tours of duty with iraq and afghanistan. he gave his all for his country along with five other americans who were killed in afghanistan. although joe left nebraska a very long time ago, i'm quite certain he carried his early formation in his early life of service and my state was never far from joe's heart. before the service that memorialized him, i saw his mother. shirley embraced me as though we
6:48 pm
were family members and perhaps we were. she embraced our governor and the united states senator the same way. every one in the gym knew in the midst of this loss that joseph mb's life had great value, great purpose. mr. speaker, several weeks ago, ashington $was buried in snow, the remnants are still around and i was intending to come back to washington but had to cancel that trip and i had more time than i anticipated in my hometouch of linchingon. and i noticed young people walking around the complex, i re farmers of america,
6:49 pm
emblazened ackets with the hometown and they came from the future business leaders of america, the family and career leaders of america, future skills, to talk about a very important issue, to talk about food security. in nebraska, we are fortunate to have a very, very low unemployment rate. we have the convergens of natural resources, our farming and we have manufacturing and financial sector and solid community leadership and has left us much better than those across the country. in our state, we face problems
6:50 pm
with structural poverty. these young students came together because they recognize the need to engage in the issue of children who face hunger, children who return from school hungry, children who worry who don't have enough to eat. these young people were gathered to lead the way to find real-time solutions, to help the impoverished young members who are around them. kept me snow storm that stop y, that didn't students who were on buses, the freedom to assemble and the freedom of speech and in the face of that blizzard, these boys and girls participated in
6:51 pm
the annual march for life. they are young people who refuse they refuse to stare at and refuse ndenness to accept what has been fostered upon us in the last four decades of brokenness and family life caused. ion that has they are demanding. they are saying to us that women deserve better. they traveled to washington to express this pro-life prospective and proclaim we should proclaim. this is the generation and standing upon the broken
6:52 pm
traditions and longing for more and they are saying there is a better way, no matter how deep and difficult the problem is. and our nation still experiences, our politics still madam speaker -- madam speaker .although our nation and our body experiences sad and deep divisions over the question of abortion, i think we should commend these students for response apply exercising their rights to peacebly demonstrate, to standing up for what they believe. that is a strength and renewal in america. sometimes it challenges us in
6:53 pm
power many when truth is spoken to us. ometimes it bumps up against systems when stacked against the ordinary person that these young r young people are not willing to accept the political and economic system. let's strive for more. let's put aside the pain. let's heal the past and look forward when all life is celebrated as a beautiful gift. i respect what they did. for thank again all of us these young people, as future stewards of a rebuilt america. so, mr. speaker, that's what i wanted to say to you.
6:54 pm
i'm proud of the people of nebraska who are demonstrating. joseph c servants and interim and the young people ack home who are deciding to tackle poverty and hunger and the students who treked all this way to stand in defense of a vulnerable person. answer we could find an what is right about america at a time when so many things are going wrong, we can carry forward the best traditions and the renewing social force that will help our country around. yieldingr. gohmert for
6:55 pm
me the time. mr. gohmert: i'm grateful to my friend from nebraska. we came in together and i'm glad we did and friends ever since. to noteworthy tribute he had pay. i'm grateful for that tribute. madam speaker, we have had so many americans who have given as lincoln the last full measure of devotion for freedom, liberty, for people who aren't americans. and our current presidents are fond of saying that's who we are and then provides access to $100 billion for iran, largest
6:56 pm
supporter of terrorism. going to support terrorism, with a lot more money now that the president has made all this available. the president has said that's not who we are and then he shows us, we open our arms to terrorists from all over the world. but americans, so many americans gave their lives, gave their limbs for liberty in iraq, for liberty in afghanistan, and now -- well, in fact, in afghanistan, i recall my figures rrectly, in 7.25 years, from october from 2001 until january over 9, there were just
6:57 pm
100 precious american lives given for the cause of freedom n afghanistan. supposedly we are told by this president, the war pretty much over, he sent troops to afghanistan but after the war was over and troops were left over there, we keep getting americans killed and it is because of the rules of engagement that so needlessly ties their hands. this administration would punish a first class martland for stopping a child serial rapist. throw him out, because this administration, at least, here this country, does not want
6:58 pm
to offend the child serial rapist numb afghanistan. no wonder so many people vrm lost respect. they know that will stuff is going on. they know that if sergeant martland stood up, the woman and the child, they knew what he did. they spread the word. and then the word spreads when sgget martland makes international news because they want to punish him, note illing, not beheading, not dis embowling. and the act of a defense of a third person, many third
6:59 pm
persons, they find out this administration punished the military hero, the green beer a, that protected -- beret, that protected the victims. it's incredible. any administration that would do that would probably turn around and if they heard about some entity that was allowing unborn babies to be killed and selling body parts, they would punish the people that exposed it, instead of punishing those who did such a heinous act, those who have read scripture know there comes a time when right is wrong and wrong is right the
7:00 pm
evil are rewarded but we know the day will come when the ultimate judge of the world will set things straight. o this story from martha mendoza and james johnson from -- thisoldest christian is amon as terry where americans know ere people came to years.or the last 1400 and god did miracles. it is a place where our military werey,
