"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)

and social conservatives and national security conservatives
2:00
we stand strong for economic growth but we also stand
2:07
for life and marriage
2:14
we defend the constitutional rights
2:17
but we also stand and lead the fight against
2:21
I sis and a nuclear Iran we need all three legs
2:33
up the proverbial republicans school not one leg not to
2:37
but the way we get to 51 percent is we bring together conservatives
2:43
and libertarians and evangelicals and women and young people
2:47
and hispanics and reagan democrats
2:50
and how do we do that we do that fundamentally
2:59
by standing with the people
3:02
and not with Washington Washington
3:10
what's Obamacare the people want Liberty
3:15
Washington
3:20
wants amnesty the people want true love law
3:29
washington wants
3:31
power over the Internet the people what
3:36
freedom online and don't believe President Obama when he says if you like
3:45
your internet
3:46
you can keep your internet Hillary Clinton
3:53
embodies the corruption in washington
4:03
way need to run a populist campaign
4:06
standing for hard working men and women we need to take the power out of
4:14
washington
4:14
and bring it back to the american people
4:25
now how do you differentiate there lots a terrific candidates 2016 looks like
4:31
it's gonna be a crowded race
4:33
and there are a lot of people here who are powerful they're
4:37
inspirational they make your heart store they inspire me every day
4:42
how we differentiate well we all know that any campaign
4:49
every candidate comes up and tells you on the most conservative guy that's ever
4:54
lived
4:55
just what they say I'm pretty confident you haven't seen any speakers come up
5:01
here yet say
5:02
actually I'm I'm a squishy moderate stance for nothing a pretty sure none of
5:09
them actually stood here instead
5:10
every one of them will say
5:14
you bet your whole deadly I am as conservative as all get out
5:17
well we have a way
5:21
to tell the difference the word tells us you shall know them by their fruits
5:33
and so I would encourage all the men and women gathered here today
5:37
demand action not talk
5:47
if a candidate tells you they oppose Obamacare
5:50
fantastic wanna be stood up and fought against
5:54
if a candidate tells you they oppose
6:01
that debt and debt ceiling that are crushing our kids and grandkids
6:05
terrific when you stood up and fought against
6:09
if a candidate says they oppose President Obama's the illegal and
6:15
unconstitutional
6:17
executive amnesty terrific
6:20
when if you stood up and fought against if a candidate tells you that they
6:28
support the first amendment freedom of speech religious liberty
6:32
that they support the second amendment the right to keep and bear arms
6:35
fantastic when did you start up
6:44
talk is cheap the candidate tells you they support like the candidate tell you
6:49
they support marriage when have you stood
6:52
and fought if I can it tells you they stand with the nation of Israel
7:02
terrific when have you stood
7:13
if a candidate says that they oppose Iran acquiring nuclear weapons
7:17
capability
7:18
fantastic when have you stood
7:21
and fought actions speak far far louder than words
7:31
we need to look to people who walk the walk and don't just talk the talk at the
7:38
candidate says
7:40
they oppose Common Core fantastic when did you stood up and fought against
7:45
you know I had a former boss to use to say
7:53
if I never accused a being a Christian
7:56
I'd like for that to be enough evidence
7:59
to convict me now that is powerfully powerfully true
8:07
and it is equally true being a conservative if you're really a
8:11
conservative you will have been in the trenches you will bear the scars
8:15
you will have been fighting the fight and I'll tell you what the man when it
8:20
went to C pac understand it's that the biggest divide we have in this country
8:25
it's not between Republicans and Democrats
8:28
the biggest divide we have in this country is between
8:32
career politicians in Washington and the american people
8:36
the
8:49
so if you have a candidate
8:51
who stood against democrats that's right
8:54
wanted even willing to stand up against republicans
9:03
what have you been willing to stand with the people
9:07
this is a fundamental
9:11
choice in our country
9:15
fundamental direction at the men and women here
9:19
will decide it was forty years ago it's a pack
9:23
that President Reagan said the path to victory
9:27
is painting not pale pastels but
9:31
bold colors I am convinced 2016
9:41
is going to be an election very very much like nineteen eighty
9:46
now it's worth remembering
9:52
in 1980 when reagan ran Washington despised break
9:58
member reagan had primary gerald ford
10:02
the sitting Republican president in 1976
10:06
you wanna take off republican leadership
10:10
come within an inch up toppling the incumbent Republican Press
10:17
but President Reagan told
10:21
the people of this country the Republican Party is not a fraternal
10:25
order
10:25
we
10:29
share philosophical commitments to freedom and the republican party matters
10:36
only in so far in in so long as we stand
10:40
for liberty and the Constitution and for the american people
10:52
our nation is in crisis at home
10:55
millions of americans are hurting Obamacare
10:58
is a train wreck and that's actually not fair to train tracks
11:08
and all abroad
11:09
america's receded from leadership in the world we see the president
11:14
describing the horrible terrorist attacks in Paris is a quote
11:20
random active violence there's nothing random about
11:26
radical Islamists going into a kosher deli to murder Jews for their Jewish
11:31
faith
11:38
went 21 Coptic Christians are beheaded
11:41
we see the president saying they were simply Egyptian citizens
11:45
they were murdered for their Christian faith in the president of the united
11:50
states needs to stand up and defend
12:04
to turn this country around it will not come from washington it will come from
12:08
the american people and so I would ask everyone to view
12:11
if you will join our grassroots army
12:15
then take out your cell phone and text
12:18
the word Constitution to the number 33
12:23
733 let me give that to you again take out your cell phone and text
12:28
the word Constitution just 337 33
12:33
it will be chill view empowering and energizing We the People
12:38
that turns the country around because I'll tell you as my father said to me
12:43
many many times after he fled cuba
12:46
I saw freedom taken away once
12:50
and I'll die before I let it happen ha
12:56
thank you and god bless you the
13:05
hello placard
13:08
give it up senator Ted Cruz
13:12
already left the two years
13:17
and we can fundamentally transform America
13:22
back to what it was and that's great happy about that senator
13:27
great to see you it's an honor to be here I I got some questions
13:30
someone from Twitter and Facebook actual people should weigh you did a 21 hour
13:35
filibuster 21 hours
13:39
the purpose was to strip funding from the health care bill member that the 21
13:44
i watch most
13:45
by so your fellow republicans Rick Santorum called your bomb-thrower
13:52
Senator McCain said it was an agonizing
13:56
Odyssey and then use the term wacko bird senator Graham said it was
14:01
hostage-taking in political overreach
14:03
I didn't say it relaxed
14:08
my question to you senator
14:11
what do you say back to those senators that criticize you for standing up for
14:16
your promise
14:16
look the simple pointy ears we shouldn't be listening to Washington
14:26
we should be listening to the American people Obama Care
14:29
is a disaster millions of Americans have lost their jobs
14:33
have lost their health care have lost their doctor and John
14:37
I seem to recall that many of those critics said
14:40
when so many of the men and women in this room stood up and said stop the
14:43
train wreck that is Obamacare
14:45
the washington pundits all said oh this'll be a disaster
14:50
this'll keep Harry Reid as majority leader forever now
14:54
did I miss that in the last election the key to change is not just growing
15:04
government in Washington the key to change is a result of that fight
15:08
millions of men and women across this country rose up and said
15:11
stop the disaster that is Obamacare in November 2012
15:15
republicans across this country campaign saying if you give us a majority
15:20
will stop Obamacare and what happened we won the biggest title wave since the
15:25
1920s
15:26
and Lee retired Harry Reid is majority the my next question
15:33
we have a similar fight going on just a show of hands
15:37
how many would like to see the republicans defund
15:41
the president's executive order on immigration hi
15:45
the
15:47
my question to you is it seems in the senate
15:49
there's a disagreement once again with you in some
15:53
Republican senators over a bifurcated deal
15:56
that would fun Department of Homeland Security and separate out a separate
16:00
bill
16:01
on not funding the executive
16:04
orders on immigration what do you say
16:07
why do you think that's the wrong strategy look unfortunately republican
16:12
leadership
16:13
is cutting a deal with Harry Reid the democrats
16:16
to give an onyx active amnesty and the question why
16:22
is because they're not listening to you I talked about the divide
16:25
between Washington and the people in washington K street
16:28
and Wall Street love amnesty they support the substantive policy and their
16:37
is a min dashed city about Washington they want to take a showboat
16:42
but they don't actually want to follow through on what they say how do we
16:46
change it
16:47
the only way to change shot what I'm trying to do you think about it the tech
16:52
context
16:53
the tech context we know about disruptive aP's they come in and change
16:57
how good our services distributed
16:59
and inevitably the incumbent providers fight back
17:03
viciously so when over left comes into a city the taxing commissions do
17:08
everything they can to kill it
17:09
what I'm trying to do more than anything else is bring a disruptive ap
17:14
to politics
17:18
me tomb to move power
17:21
back to the american people and everyone has a vested interest
17:25
in keeping decision making in the smoke-filled rooms in both parties
17:30
they fight bigger asleep because they don't want the power
17:33
to be back with the american people senator
17:37
we witnessed Bihar are
17:41
what's happening with ice we have seen mass beheadings we have seen women sold
17:45
into slavery the harvesting
17:47
organs radical Islamist they are on the move
17:50
they've taken a lot on the ground that our brave troops sacrifice tied for in
17:54
Iraq
17:55
four thousand of them my question to you is the jordanians after one pilot
17:59
they've responded with fierce opposition enforce
18:03
against my sis the egyptians under general president LCC
18:08
they have shown massive for some retaliation for 21 Coptic Christian
18:12
simultaneously beheaded
18:13
what is your analysis what is your take on what America needs to do
18:17
and why can't this president admit that the Islamic State
18:22
is in fact islamic and radical islamic ZS
18:25
we need a commander in chief who will actually stand up and defend the United
18:31
States of America
18:37
we need to stop this bizarre Orwellian doublespeak
18:41
we cannot defeat radical
18:44
islamic terrorism with a president who is unwilling to utter the words
18:50
radical islamic terrorist you know the state's Department spokesperson just
18:59
said recently we can't win this by killing ice
19:03
we need to give them jobs what utter and complete
19:09
nonsense lesson that is precisely how we win this
19:15
we kill the terrorist leader's before they kill us
19:24

19:29
I am asking this next question because I know the loop liberal media
