Ted Cruz Iowa caucus victory speech

Ted Cruz may have surprised some by besting Donald Trump and a crowded GOP field of candidates by winning the Iowa caucus, but the Texas senator was bold and loud giving honor and praise to God.

Cruz fired immediate shots at both Trump and the party elites he has so infuriated by waging an anti-establishment crusade that has nevertheless endeared him to the GOP’s rank and file.

“Iowa has sent notice that the Republican nominee and the next President of the United States will not be chosen by the media, will not be chosen by the Washington establishment,” Cruz said.

“Do you want to know what scares the Washington cartel?” Cruz asked the crowd at one point. When they shouted back “You!”

“Tonight is a victory for every American who understands that after we survive eight long years of the Obama presidency, that no one personality can right the wrongs done by Washington. The millions who understand that it is a commitment to the constitution to our shared insistence that we rise and return to a higher standard, the very standard that gave birth to the greatest nation that the world has ever known. To the revolutionary understanding that all men and all women are created equal. That our rights do not come from the democratic party or the Republican party or even from the tea party. Our rights come from our creator.”

Check out the full clip below.

“If you want a candidate to repeal Obamacare, then support a candidate who has LED the fight to repeal Obamacare. If you want a president to stop amnesty, to secure the borders and keep us safe, then support a candidate who has LED the fight to stop amnesty to secure the borders and to keep us safe. If you want a candidate to support life and marriage and religious liberty, then support a candidate who spent decades of his life fighting to defend life and marriage and religious liberty. If you want a candidate to defend the second amendment right to keep and bear arms, then ask of every candidate where were you in the spring of 2013 when Barack Obama and Harry Reid and chuck Schumer tried to undermine the second amendment right to keep and bear arms? If you want a candidate who will stand unapologetically with the nation of Israel, then support a candidate who has LED the fight over and over again to stand by our friend and ally, the nation of Israel. And if you want a commander in chief who will fulfill the most solemn obligation of the president to keep this nation safe, then support a candidate who has demonstrated the commitment, the judgment, the experience, the clarity of vision, to identify our enemy, to call it by its name, radical islamic terrorism. And to utterly and completely defeat ISIS. If I am elected president, every militant on the face of the planet know, if you go and join ISIS, if you wage jihad on the United States of America, if you attempt to murder innocent Americans you are signing your death warrant.”
