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.”

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
