Chilling video: True the Vote founder’s riveting details of harassment by Obama’s ‘political machine’

This testimony about the IRS scandal should make blood boil in Obama’s America.

catherineengelbrecht0209For a riveting seven minutes Thursday, True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht described to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee how her life changed after she started the voter integrity group and filed applications for non-profit status with the IRS:

Federal government audits followed; business inspections ensued, with thousands of dollars in fines from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration; the IRS demanded her speaking schedule.

The inquiries covered matters that would be of little use to an analyst for tax purposes, Engelbrecht said, but would be “of interest to a political machine that will put its own survival against the civil liberties of private citizens.”

“As an American citizen, I am part of a country that still believes in freedom of speech,” Engelbrecht said. “No American citizen should be willing to accept a government that uses its power against its own people.”

Leno takes last shot at president in final monologue; Obama responds

She demanded that Congress put a halt to proposed IRS regulations covering non-profits that would simply make the abuses that became public in May a recognized part of the Obama regulatory regime. The agency now wishes to make legal the same abuses that led to IRS official Lois Lerner to take the Fifth Amendment rather than testify before the same committee in June.

Congress, Engelbrecht said, must “end this ugly chapter of political intimidation.”

“Protect the people. Restore liberty to the people,” she said. “Because we will not be silenced.”

    Take the majority vote back in Nov 2014……………………..

    • Richard Dockery

      Amen if the idiots don’t vote for them again!

      • Herman Vogel

        As long as the Gravy Train rolls and the Handouts keep coming and they don’t HAVE to look for a job,,,,”Yes they can”

    • Douglas W. Rodrigues

      Pretty difficult to do with all of the voter cheating going on.

  • Jon Langejans

    I would have loved to hear the reply for the committee.

    • susandanielspi

      Trey Gowdy responded. Look for it. He was outstanding.

      • Doug

        I’m now sending all my Pat Robertson money to True the Vote.

    • Herman Vogel

      We know what Conservatives said,,,but the Liberals were too busy laughing inside to Respond…Disgusting,,,huh

  • Jeff Jennings

    Wow, I guess we’re all under the microscope, potentially. Maybe we should pretend to something we’re not ? Awkward has become, being American.

  • aliswell

    Absolutely outrageous what this woman has endured at the hands of this corrupt regime.

    It must end, and it will end, one way or another.

  • Robert12Disqus

    it’s like explaining to the wolves that have taken over the hen house why what they’re doing is wrong. we need to simply abolish this present and absolutely corrupt government and return the power to the people to reform a more perfect union without the whackos currently running it ever being involved in anything to do with any semblance of any government in any part of the world ever. just abolishing it alone would significantly help out everyone – no more OPM for criminal gov officials to fund terrorist organizations abroad, oh and yeah here at home too, while feigning proclamations of safety and security for the american people by taking away the people’s liberties and inalienable rights.

    • Douglas W. Rodrigues

      Attend the May16th Washington D.C. rally and get connected to others who feel the same way. What the politicians do after the rally will determine if they’ll be a bloody revolution or not. That revolution will be with the politician’s blood flowing first.

      • Doug

        No one has told me yet. Will we be packing on the March?

        • thestormy

          We Will be obeying the law. No arms allowed in D.C. All arms & ammo will be stored outside the beltway.
          By the way,this is a peaceful demonstration. The violence,if any,will have to be started by the Fed. Gov. Read the Orders of Engagement on the American Spring page. We are not going for blood. We are going to get treasonous officials out of our government & return to a Constitutional government.

        • Douglas W. Rodrigues

          No. Nobody packing. You don’t want to be packing and get arrested. Depending what is accomplished at this rally, we may have to come back packing and start that bloody revolution that the politicians will regret.

          • Doug

            The march to end all marches.

    I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.-Thomas Jefferson

    Power in defense of freedom is greater than power in behalf of tyranny and oppression, because power, real power, comes from our conviction which produces action, uncompromising action.-Malcolm X

    A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circlue of our felicities.-Thomas Jefferson

    A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.-Thomas Jefferson
