Glenn talks to congressional candidate Katrina Pierson about taking on the establishment GOP

With the midterm elections just around the corner, Glenn has decided to make a habit of highlighting some promising candidates in federal and state elections all over the country. On radio this morning, Glenn introduced Katrina Pierson who is challenging Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) for Texas District 32.

“We have made a promise to you that we would introduce you to some candidates that we think are pretty good… And you can decide from there. We also make a promise to each candidate that if you turn out to be a dirt bag, we turn on you so fast and so hard, that your head will spin,” Glenn said. “Katrina Pierson is running against Congressman Pete Sessions here in Texas… To call Pete a massive disappointment is a massive understatement. And you should get to know Katrina. Ted Cruz, who doesn’t throw these things around lightly, called her an utterly fearless principled conservative, which I think is about the highest praise you could get from Ted Cruz.”

As Pierson explained, it is the depth of her life experience that has made her the conservative she is today.

“People always ask me how I became so conservative considering where I came from. And the simple answer is I just lived it. My mother was 14 years old when she was pregnant with me, and my grandfather said abortion was not an option,” Pierson explained. “But she had a biracial baby, and they didn’t know what to do. Gladney said they didn’t specialize in biracial babies, so my mother was sent to Kansas to give birth to me and give me up for adoption. She changed her mind, and brought me back to Texas. So the joke on the campaign is: I’m a native Texan born in Kansas.”

“But I also grew up with a teenage mom who became very much codependent on government and then became very much codependent on drugs, and that’s what happens with these liberal policies. It traps you in an environment that you can’t get out of,” she continued. “And then it finally breaks your spirit. And the rest of us caught up in that environment have to fight tooth and nail to get out of it. And I survived that, so I feel it’s my duty to fight back against that because it’s becoming the standard. This Administration feels like a redistribution of wealth should become the standard in this society and I cannot allow that.”

Pierson has served as a Steering Committee member for the Dallas Tea Party for the last five years, and she is also the founder of the Garland Tea Party and a member of the Texas Tea Party Caucus Advisory Committee. She worked on Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) campaign and has very real concerns with the ‘establishment’ GOP.

“Well, I think the GOP, you know, is fundamentally dismantling itself. We saw this last year that they are trying to alienate even the remaining of their base based upon special interests. The GOP used to be the party of opportunity, the party of freedom. And now it’s shifted into the party of corporatism, the party of special interest and lobbyists,” she explained. And what’s interesting is you have the liberals who have this marriage with government. And then you have Republicans who have a marriage with big business. And now you have big business married to government. So they’re all one big happy family here. It’s up to the people moving forward where the real power is to get engaged to stop that process.”

    Wow, what a great lady! Very articulate and conservative, I wish her well.

    What is her position on science? Is she a Creationist? Does she want to have Intelligent Design taught in our public schools? Does she believe the Earth is 6000 years old or that we’re living in the Biblical End Times like Glenn Beck does?

    Ma’am do not wast your time with this guy.

  • B D

    Wrong. There’s never been any proof for magic, the supernatural or any of the superstitious ideas bronze age men imagined which became religions. No proof. Nor evidence. No reason. And do you really think Joseph Smith met an angel who gave him golden plates?

  • B D

    Science isn’t an opinion Bert. And science works. Creationism is nonsense.

    Your science, like “global warming”. And the theory of evolution…still using the same “fossil” drawings that Darwin made himself – all proven wrong. Yet over 5500 writings supporting the Bible today and you want to talk about what is nonsense? Talk about sounding like opinion.

    No I do not believe Joseph Smith is anything seeing how I am not a Mormon. HP why don’t you drop the act.

    Has anyone else noticed that the conservative women that have come into the spotlight over the past several years have been everything that democrats hate…intelligent, articulate, strong, principled, and beautiful. The republican party would be smart if they embraced these individuals and let them help be the future of the party. Pierson is incredible. Hopefully she wins! Glenn, if you ever read this, please do whatever it takes to get her the win!

    Why do you care about her position on science? You obviously are not going to vote for her anyways. I know more religious scientist than non-believing ones. Stop dealing in fallacious absolutes where you have to have either science or religion. It makes you appear very immature, close-minded, and silly. Perhaps that is what you are going for.

    Yeah, just like all the ones at the Kennedy compound on Martha’s Vineyard?

    BD isn’t concerned with science, BD is concerned about the youth seizing her nest egg.

    Science is full of opinions (theories, speculation) in search of a fact. Without opinions Science would be nowhere. The history of science is filled with accounts of failures, errors and dead ends.
