Primary Target Acquired

Rep. Pete Sessions

The defeat of House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (TX-32) should be the number one goal of every Republican primary voter in Texas Congressional District 32, and every conservative donor, activist and organization across America.

Pete Sessions earned this distinction when he said last week that he would make full use of his “assets and resources” upon the beginning of the new congressional session to “create circumstances where we can have people be in this country and work, and where not one person is quote ‘thrown out’ or ‘deported.”

Representative Pete Sessions, not to be confused with conservative hero Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, has a long record of trying to bully and lie his way through tough policy decisions to avoid legislating the kind of conservative outcomes voters elect Republicans to achieve on their behalf.

Conservatives have not forgotten that Pete Sessions, along with the now defeated Eric Cantor, was the architect of last summer’s discredited (and ultimately withdrawn) House Republican strategy of “deem and pass” Obamacare funding.

But Pete Sessions’ latest betrayal – using his powerful Rules Committee Chairmanship to end run regular order and surreptitiously insinuate anti-conservative language into the House’s alleged anti-amnesty bill – should bring conservatives into open and continuous confrontation with him.

And we conservatives should make no mistake about it – this is not some gentlemanly policy debate where we can have a family disagreement among Republicans about whether to cut spending in program “A” or program “B.” 

This is a Republican leader openly declaring he is joining Democrat Rep. Luis Gutierrez, one of the most radical liberal open borders Democrats, to thwart conservatives and grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

As Tony Lee of Breitbart reported on Friday, Sessions publicly reminded Gutierrez at a Rules Committee hearing that he has told him "numerous times about what we were trying to do" and Sessions further expressed the hope the two could work together on a more permanent amnesty bill in the next Congress.

"And what I intend to say to you today is, ‘My friend, I want to work with you;’ but I would ask that we please understand that we cannot overplay what we’re really trying to do, and that is we’re trying to work through a difficult process," Sessions told Gutierrez, noting that "at least three Texans" have "spent a lot of time trying to broker this deal, and everybody knows that, about a year ago, when different changes happened, we fell apart.”

What Pete Sessions euphemistically referred to as “different changes’ was the primary defeat of amnesty proponent and then House Majority Leader Eric Cantor by amnesty opponent Dave Bratt.

The insult and outrage Pete Sessions offered to the millions of grassroots conservatives who just worked and donated and voted to give Republicans the largest House Majority they have had since 1947 cannot be overstated.

Pete Sessions for all intents and purposes declared war on us – and it is time we conservatives declared war back and made him our top primary target for 2016.

And make no mistake about it, Pete Sessions is vulnerable. 

In addition to being 180 degrees out of sync with Texas voters on amnesty, Pete Sessions’ arrogance has already drawn a lot of fire in Texas Congressional District 32.

During the 2014 Republican Primary questions arose about where exactly the Congressman and his new wife lived – in a barebones walk-up efficiency apartment in Dallas or in a ritzy condo in Florida.

This prompted Sarah Palin to comment that, Pete Sessions “has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms.”

Conservatives can now add working with his ‘friend” radical Hispanic racist Congressman Luis Gutierrez to grant amnesty, Social Security, Medicare and other government benefits to millions of illegal aliens to Palin’s bill of particulars against Rep. Pete Sessions.

Conservatives can have only one principled response to Pete Sessions’ betrayal: We must recruit, fund and support with a 24/7 volunteer effort a principled limited government constitutional conservative opponent to him in the 2016 Republican Primary. And between now and when filing for the 2016 Texas Republican Primary closes in early December of 2015, mount a relentless campaign to expose Pete Sessions’ betrayal of conservative principles and to inform voters in TX-32 what he, and his radical Democrat friends like Luis Gutierrez, are doing in Washington.
