See the Tea Party’s scathing response to Texas Congressman Pete Sessions

The fight to defund Obamacare in the House and Senate shed light on a growing divide within the GOP between the establishment and the more conservative/Tea Party movement.

One such example is Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), whose campaign has put out materials claiming he has been unfairly targeted by Freedom Works and other Tea Party groups. But local members of the Tea Party were not about to take Rep. Sessions’ claims sitting down. Instead, they penned a scathing open letter to the Congressman outlining some of their concerns with his leadership.

Ken Emanuelson, on of the authors of the open letter, will join Glenn Monday night on The Glenn Beck Program.

“So here's a letter to Pete Sessions… and it is one of the best letters I've ever seen. I'm not going to be able to read it all,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It's surgical. It's like five [pages].”

Dear Representative Sessions,

Republicans in Congressional District 32 have been receiving communications from your campaign suggesting that you are the victim of a campaign of deception being orchestrated by local TEA Party members and libertarians who are being pushed by Freedom Works and other conservative free market groups. This letter is a response to your allegations. Hopefully you would agree that the principles of honesty, good faith, and fair dealing require, at a minimum, that one fully investigate the truth before spreading conspiracy theories or carelessly tossing out public claims of deception by another person or group of people.

“Do you see what they've done in the first paragraph,” Glenn asked. “They've set out, this is going to be a response to your conspiracy theories. This is totally turning the tables.”

Hopefully, we would all agree that the principles of honesty, good faith and fair dealing require, at a minimum, that one fully investigate the truth before spreading conspiracy theories or carelessly tossing out public claims of “deception” by another person or group of people. Given the ease with which the reputation of honest men and women can be unjustly tarnished and smeared, good sense and morality demands that one be reluctant to publicly attack the character and honor of others without first investigating the available facts and confirming that such deception has actually occurred.

We’re not in a position to say, with certainty, the claims your campaign has been making arise out of an intentional effort to deceive or lie to the constituents of CD32. We are, however, in a position to say your campaign has made numerous claims that are false and clearly not supported by the facts. We address each claim, in turn, below.

“I think this is what is going to start happening to all of these progressive GOP members who have lost their soul,” Glenn said. “All of them who are blocking anybody from common sense spending limits, anyone who is voting for the continuing, ever‑expanding growth of our government, anybody who is blocking the efforts to defund Obamacare, they are going to find themselves at the voting booth in so much trouble because the American people are done with it.”

“We just gave you last hour the ten states that are going to lose, the majority of people are going to lose their healthcare as soon as these exchanges kick in because the insurance companies are pulling out. And what they will do is they will blame it on the insurance company. That's their plan. Blame it on the insurance company. But they are intentionally crippling these insurance companies as we have told you for the last four years, they are intentionally crippling them so a year from now they will say, ‘You know what? It just isn't working. You have to scrap the whole thing and we just have one single‑payer healthcare system.’ It's not like, you know, people say it's a Trojan horse. It's not a Trojan horse. Look, it's just right there in front of you. I'm quoting the Tides Foundation,” Glenn continued. “That's exactly what's going to happen. And when people really figure that out, the Pete Sessions of the world will be lucky to get out of town in time because the people will come with pitchforks because they're going to be pissed. They already are, Pete. I would suggest you don't even run. Because you've got another thing coming when you run. You are going to lose in a spectacular fashion, and I hope you're just the first in many Republicans.”

Several months ago, at the Miss Universe competition, two women took a selfie, then posted it on Instagram. The caption read, "Peace and love." As a result of that selfie, both women faced death threats, and one of the women, along with her entire family, had to flee her home country. The occasion was the 2017 Miss Universe competition, and the women were Miss Iraq and Miss Israel. Miss Iraq is no longer welcome in her own country. The government threatened to strip her of her crown. Of course, she was also badgered for wearing a bikini during the competition.

In an interview, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, said:

When I posted the picture I didn't think for a second there would be blowback. I woke up to calls from my family and the Miss Iraq Organization going insane. The death threats I got online were so scary. The director of the Miss Iraq Organization called me and said they're getting heat from the ministry. He said I have to take the picture down or they will strip me of my title.

Yesterday, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, posted another selfie with Miss Israel, during a visit to Jerusalem.

In an interview, she said that:

I don't think Iraq and Israel are enemies; I think maybe the governments are enemies with each other. There's a lot of Iraqi people that don't have a problem with Israelis.

This is, of course, quite an understatement: Iraq, home to roughly 15,000 Palestinians, refuses to acknowledge Israel as a legitimate country, as it is technically at war with Israel. The adages says that a picture is worth a thousand words. What are we to do when many of those words are hateful or deadly? And how can we find the goodness in such bad situations?

No political bias. That's the catchphrase you're likely to see blasted all over the news today. The Office of the Inspector General found no evidence that political bias played any role, either with former director Comey or other FBI agents, during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. So is it "all good now"... "carry on"... "nothing to see here"? Hardly. Here are a few of the highlights from the 568 page report.

The report makes it clear that there's no evidence that political bias influenced this investigation, but why did they take five hundred and sixty eight pages to make that point? Well, after reading it, I kind of think they want us to understand how difficult it is to prove political bias. I think the Inspector General wants us to read this report in its entirety, and read between the lines. Here are a few of the highlights.

First and foremost, this report straight eviscerated James Comey. You know one of the most controversial decisions of President Trump's tenure - so far - has been his decision to fire the former FBI director. Let's imagine for a second that Trump never did that and Comey was sitting at his desk at the Hoover Building yesterday. I can almost guarantee you that after the release of this report yesterday, Comey would have been fired by this morning anyway. Here are just a few quotes describing his behavior:

"Extraordinary and insubordinate"... not "reasonable"... "engaged in ad hoc decision making"... "serious error in judgement"

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time.

It goes on and on. This report just destroys Comey's behavior. There's no way he could have remained FBI Director.

The report goes on to analyze the behavior of several FBI agents that were involved in the Clinton investigation. Strzok and Page were but two of five employees that showed questionable behavior, either through text messages or instant messaging. If you read the texts and transcripts, they're pretty damning. In Strzok's case, his bias could have caused a delay in analyzing the contents of Anthony Weiner's laptop. I say again, it could have, but as the OIG alludes… political bias is hard to prove. Another agent that had been caught saying questionable things on an instant messaging service, was actually one of the agents that conducted Hillary Clinton's interview. In that interview, the OIG seems to acknowledge that the FBI had caught Hillary in a lie, and still they let her go. But… political bias is hard to prove.

See the theme here?

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time. But, as is the common theme for the entire Clinton family, it is those around them that suffer the most. The FBI has been tarnished. People have lost their jobs. Agents have been humiliated. All this for an arrogant and corrupt politician.

Attention earthlings: a "climate emergency" exists. It's official now, because the Berkeley City Council declared it. So, it must be true.

Frankly, you must be living under a rock if you didn't already know that a state of climate emergency exists. And if you don't do something about it, like now, you could be living under a rock very soon. Because according to the foremost authority on climate doom — the Berkeley City Council — this emergency is as dire as World War II.

RELATED: Americans Aren't Having Kids – and Some Say Climate Change Is a Big Reason Why

Council Member Cheryl Davila warns that global warming is driving us toward, "…the sixth mass extinction of species, which could devastate much of life on earth for the next 10 million years."

The city council resolution says:

During World War II, the Bay Area came together across race, age, class, gender and other differences in an extraordinary regional mobilization, building and repairing Liberty ships, converting car assembly plants into tank manufacturing facilities…

The Berkeley City Council says the only way to avert World War II-level disaster is if Americans mobilize in the same way now to confront climate change as we did in 1942 to confront Nazism. Because climate change and Nazism are definitely the same.

It gets worse. The resolution calls our current climate emergency "the greatest crisis in history."

Seriously, their resolution sounds straight out of the Galactic Empire handbook — "mobilizing workers" to build and install "renewable energy infrastructure."

Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years.

Berkeley committed itself to becoming a "carbon sink" by 2030. For the uninitiated, that means they want the city's greenhouse gas emissions to be in the negative. Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years. Except they won't be able to use any farm animals, because you know, too much methane.

Becoming a carbon sink is not their only strategy. Their resolution also mentions that earth has too many people screwing up the atmosphere, so we must "humanely stabilize population." Interesting — there were some World War II-era figures also interested in "stabilizing" population. They just forgot the "humane" part.
