any and all criminal conduct by that organization.

[applause] means theuz: that little sisters of the poor, who pope francis visited this week, will find that the case against him has been dismissed. -- them has been dismissed. [applause] senator cruz: you know, kim davis is here. [applause] just a couple of weeks ago, i have the opportunity to visit kim in a
kentucky jailhouse. six months, a year ago, if i had a common said that a christian woman was going to be thrown in jail, locked up in jail, for living her face, the media -- would have dismissed me -- -- faith, the media would have dismissed me is a nutcase. and me, we embraced and i said, thank you.

[applause] senator cruz: and to make very clear to the american people if you vote for hillary you are voting for iran to acquire nuclear weapons. me, under note for circumstance will a nation led by a theocratic ayatollah who death to america, under no circumstances will iran be allowed to acquire a nuclear weapon. [applause] senator cruz: and if the
ayatollah does not understand that, we may have to help introduce him to his 72 virgins. [applause] senator cruz: the fifth thing. i intend to do on the first day in office is big in process of moving the american embassy in israel to jerusalem, the once and eternal capital of israel.

themselves. [applause] that means the intotime a jihadist walks a recruiting center in chattanooga, tennessee, he is going to encounter the business end of firearms wielded by a dozen marines.

american can fill out his or her taxes on a postcard. we shoulde do that, abolish the irs. [applause] senator cruz: know some of you all might be thinking, although that makes sense to me. basic common sense. live within your means. do not bankrupt our kids and grandkids. follow the constitution. but can we do it? can it be done? us know, scripture tells there is nothing new under the sun. today ishere we are very much like the late 1970's. same failed economic policy, statement misery, stagnation --
same misery, stagnation, and malaise. same feckless foreign policy. in fact, the exact same countries, russia and iran, openly laughing at and marking the president of the united states. -- mocking the president of the united states. gives me soanalogy much hope? because we know that story ended. [applause] senator cruz: all across this country, millions of men and women rose up and became the reagan revolution. [applause] and it did not come from washington. washington despised ronald reagan. by the way, if you see a candidate who washington embraces, run and hide. [applause] it turned this
country around and i am here to tell you the same thing can happen again. [applause] senator cruz: all over this country, millions of men and women are waking up. do you know, since this campaign has started, out of 17 republican candidates, do you know which campaign raised the most hard money? we did.

[applause] senator cruz: people all over the country coming to tedcruz.org. -- the people are waking up. and let me tell you what ts.hington wan
washington wants us divided. washington wants conservatives wondered. evangelicals over here, conservatives over here, libertarians over here, tea party folks over here. that is how, if we are splintered, that a moderate runs up the middle with 23% of the vote, steals the nomination, and loses to hillary clinton in the general election. you know what? we have seen that movie before. i am not interested in going to see rocky 19. we have a simple task before us. unite, we wives in. [applause] senator cruz: so i am here to ask each and every one of you,
stand, stand in your face, stand with your principles, come together. how do we turn this country around? just like in the 80's, we rise up as we the people, and say we will defend of his, best hope ningmankind, this shi city on a hill that is the united states of america. thank you and god bless you.

i know donald trump was here earlier. he brought got a -- a copy of the bible that he got as a child. but he left it backstage. [laughter] governor jindal: knowing how close i am to donald trump, one of the organizers gave it to me and asked me to give it back to him so i was taking a look at it. this is very different from my bible. i am not sure what translation -- i do not know what translation you use. my bible, it does not say the art of the deal on the front cover. [laughter] governor jindal: it does not have a picture of donald trump on the front cover. we will have to make sure to get that back to donald. i want to talk, and i know you all have heard the news today that speaker boehner decided to step down. [applause] governor jindal: a reporter asked me what i thought about that. down, 434 more to go before
we are done. [applause] .overnor jindal: what is time to fire everybody folks, it is time to fire everybody in d.c. we have a choice between honest so. one side and lighting conservatives -- honest socialists on one side and lying conservatives on the other. they say they are conservatives but they do not govern market. govern like it. here is my message. mitch mcconnell, it is now your turn. [applause] governor jindal: if senator mcconnell is not going to fight for conservative principles, he needs to follow speaker banner's example.
i will say something that may surprise you. i am actually angrier with the republicans than the democrats. you have got a: bunch of republicans that do not do the things they say they will do. remember when i said, honest socialists, guys like bernie sanders who are fighting for socialism. why won't our guys fight for freedom and america? [applause] governor jindal: on issue after issue, all they know how to do is give up. give us the majority, we will get rid of obamacare and amnesty. we did our work. we voted, we donated money and time. we still have obamacare. we still have amnesty. by the way, i am the only candidate with a plan to get rid of all of obamacare. not obamacare light. let's restore freedom to america's health-care system,
not socialism. [applause] rico couldndal: secure the border in six months if they were serious about it. let's be honest. the democrats do not want to secure the border. the republicans, we are not the party of big government but we are becoming the party of big business. big business interests more open borders -- interests want open borders and common core. peopleime to fire these and secure the border. [applause] governor jindal: but they are no better this year. so now mitch mcconnell, before the fight even starts, says we cannot defund planned parenthood. folks, let me tell you something. if the republican party cannot defund planned parenthood, if we cannot make protecting innocent human life a winning issue what good is the
republican party? it is time to fold up the tent and start a new movement. [applause] i will tell you what we did in louisiana. we are not talking about defunding planned parenthood. we launched an investigation with the fbi. we canceled the medicaid contract. they are getting no taxpayer dollars in the state of louisiana. [applause] governor jindal: they did not like that. they decided to come protest at my house in baton rouge. they have a constitutional right to do that but we are southerners. we like to provide hospitality. [laughter] put big jindal: we projections claims and cameras out there and i showed the planned parenthood videos over and over and over. [applause]
governor jindal: just so you know, it acts like insect recurrent. they went to court. the obama administration has joined them in court. he does not have time to watch the videos. i have a message for president obama and the department of justice. save your breath. you are not going to intimidated area we are going to defend innocent human life in the state of louisiana. [applause] governor jindal: now we have this awful iranian deal. conned president obama and he conned congress.
it takes a two thirds vote to reject the iran deal. every senate republican voted for this bad bill except for one . thank him for not doing it. including the senate republicans voting for president. rubio, cruise, paul, they all voted for the bill. that is the time for the senate republicans to stand up. if we are not willing to use the nuclear option to stop iran from becoming a nuclear power, what good are the senate republicans? if we are not willing to break the senate rules -- [applause] folks, it isal: time to forest term limits down -- force term limits down their throats. it is time to get citizen ors who live under the same rules that they pass.
it is time to clean shop in washington, d.c. [applause] governor jindal: i want to talk to you directly about this presidential campaign. i will be honest with you, i do not have a famous last name. my daddy was not president. i do not have a reality tv show. this is what i've got. i have got the backbone, i have got the bandwidth, i have got the experience to get us through it. why is that important? there are 16 folks running. on the republican side. they all talked a great game. is easy to give red meat applause lines. there is the problem. we have a great talker in the white house today. talk is not enough. we need a doer. is giving a speech was not enough we would be on easy street. every republican will tell you they will cut governments bending. -- government spending.
it sounds great. only one candidate has actually done it. we have several former governors running and only one has cut spending and you are looking at him. no other governor has cut spending. [applause] we have got for senators and they have never got anything in d.c.. give great speeches. the filibuster and pat themselves on the back. i am glad they have got big letters. -- bladders. but does not qualify them to be president. we cannot afford four years of on-the-job training. the next president is going to be across the table from an ayatollah or a putin. we better hope he does not needed teleprompter to make it through that meeting. [applause] governor jindal: we cut government spending in louisiana
26%. 30,000 fewer bureaucrats from the day i took office. the credit upgrade. that is what we need in d.c. we do not need to slow the growth of government. you either grow government spending or the american economy. it is either or. shrink government spending it will swallow us all. i want to tell you something that may be politically incorrect. if you are looking for somebody to manage the slow decline of this country, go vote for somebody else. if you want to vote somebody who will do the things you're not supposed to do or say, joined our cause because i am going to say something that is politically incorrect but true. the idea of america is slipping away right in front of us. what do i mean by that? my parents came here 45 years ago in search of freedom and opportunity. they are coming for the same
idea but it is slipping away. too many americans take it for granted. what do i mean? $18 trillion in debt. planned parenthood selling baby parts across our country. a president who has declared war on france fats and a truce with iran. -- trans fats and a truce with iran. [applause] governor jindal: we have a president who will not say the words radical islamic terrorism, a supreme court that thinks it is smarter than god. the left is trying to change the american dream into the european nightmare. we celebrate the fact that we have more americans on food stamps and ever before in a record low participation in the workforce. we have the government creating new entitlement programs when we cannot afford the government we have today. the idea of america is slipping away from us and we do not have a moment to waste.
it is not about next week or next month, right now and generate. we need to fight to save the idea of america. shame on those wolfsburg giving fools inhose washington who are giving away the idea of america. the idea of america has created more wealth than any other civilization in the history of the world. it has done more to fight for the defenseless and freedom than any civilization in the history of the world. [applause] governor jindal: we have got a once in a lifetime, once in a generation opportunity to apply our conservative principles to save the idea of america. that is why a couple of weeks ago i came to this town and i gave a speech and criticized donald trump. some of you may have liked it, some of you may not have liked it, it does not matter.
i have to tell the truth. and here is the truth. i love the idea of donald trump. i do. i love an outsider. i look somebody who was politically incorrect. i love somebody who says the d.c. establishment is full of nonsense. i thought donald trump was entertaining. youought it was great when give out lindsey graham's phone number on national tv. [laughter] governor jindal: i did. i thought it was funny when he showed people fully asleep in jeb bush's rallies. i thought it was good when he gave helicopter rides to the iowa state fair. i thought it was fantastic. here is the problem. the idea of donald trump is great but the reality is very different. he is not ais that conservative or a liberal or a democrat or republican or independent. he is a narcissist. [applause] i mean, he gets the stu -- pissed off.
he does not care about policy. we as a conservatives have a choice. only going to turn our proven we going to-- are turn to our proven principles, or to a man who cares only about himself. in makingrested donald trump great. he said that his favorite book was the bible. cannot name one verse that have an impact on him. olks, he has not read the bible. you know he is not read the bible because his name is not in the bible. isn't about donald trump. this is about turning to our conservative principles. we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to save the idea of america. him on the elevator and send him downstairs and tell him he is fired. the show has been entertaining and we loved him but it is time
for us to fight for the idea of america. for i close, i want to say this. not not embarrassed, i am ashamed to tell you i am a christian. [applause] governor jindal: i was not born, i was not raised christian. it took seven long years for me at the age of 16 to give my life to crest. i accepted jesus as my personal lord and savior in baton rouge, louisiana. [applause] governor jindal: why do i tell you that? we need somebody who is willing to fight for us. look, christians are under physical assault all over the world. our christian values are under assault your home. make no mistake about it. the left wants to take god out of the public square. they want to redefine marriage. mishandle if you classified information, you can
run for president. as you do not believe in gay marriage, they lock you up in jail. that is what is happening in america today. we are not just talking about christian values in louisiana. we have been rated the most pro-life state six years in a row. we have fought to get rid of common core. i will say this slowly so even the left understands. the united states of america did not create religious liberty. religious liberty created the united states of america. it is why we are here today. [applause] governor jindal: i am not just here to ask you to join a silly campaign. i am here to ask you to join a cause. it is time to believe in america again. my
