True the Vote’s Catherine Engelbrecht and Cleta Mitchell Talk About Lawsuit Against IRS

CatherineTrueTheVote_thumb2

By Gary P Jackson

We told you about the assault on Catherine Engelbrecht and True the Vote, and how the Obama regime not only unleashed the IRS on True the Vote, but the FBI, EPA, and even OSHA to harass both Engelbrecht and the manufacturing business she and her husband own.

Engelbrecht and her attorney Cleta Mitchell talk to Bill O’Reilly about the case:

CBS News has now picked up on the story, thanks to Sharyl Attkisson, who is rapidly becoming one of our favorite journalists. Someone unafraid to tell the truth.

Texas businesswoman Catherine Engelbrecht says she never had trouble with the government. That is, until she founded two groups with conservative causes. Now, she’s telling a fascinating story of alleged harassment not only by the IRS but also other agencies that she believes targeted her and her organizations because of their political ties. …

The trouble began shortly after Engelbrecht founded True the Vote, which trains election volunteers and aims to root out voter fraud; and King Street Patriots, a group with ideals similar to the Tea Party. Both sought tax-exempt status from the IRS in July 2010. And both organizations drew the ire of Democrats. Democrats accused True the Vote of intimidating voters in its poll watching efforts, which the group denies. And the Texas Democratic Party successfully sued King Street Patriots, arguing that it’s an unregistered political action committee.

But Engelbrecht’s attorney, Cleta Mitchell, says it’s not just the Democratic Party that went after the conservative causes, but also the federal government. Within months of the groups filing for tax-exempt status, Engelbrecht claims she started getting hit by an onslaught of harassment: six FBI domestic terrorism inquiries, an IRS visit, two IRS business audits, two IRS personal audits, and inspections of her equipment manufacturing company by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Texas environmental quality officials.

Taken alone, any of the visits and actions might seem perfectly reasonable. But Engelbrecht and her lawyer says it’s the pattern and the timing of the attention paid to Engelbrecht’s interests that led them to conclude something was amiss.

How bad is all of this? An attorney who represents liberals in tax exempt cases finds this harassment “very troubling

Washington, D.C., attorney John Pomeranz represents liberal organizations seeking tax-exemption. He told CBS News that he has found some of the IRS requests of tea party groups “new” and “very troubling,” and said he doesn’t recall getting similar demands for his liberal clients.

This may be one of the worst cases of government harassment of a citizen in our nation’s history. It’s a true black eye on government, that’s for sure.

This is why Big Government must be stopped. Why Big Government is so dangerous to We, the People.

Megyn Kelly: Did Attorney General Eric Holder Lie Under Oath?

Devastating news concerning Obama’s main man Eric Holder. It’s pretty obvious that Holder lied under oath to the House Judiciary Committee investigating the assault on reporters’ Liberty and Freedom.

Now we will see what Congress does about it.

Megyn Kelly talks more about it here. Powerful evidence.

Video: Catherine Engelbrecht of True The Vote Attacked by IRS, ATF, FBI, OSHA for Her Politics

CatherineTrueTheVote_thumb2

By Gary P Jackson

Out of all the assaults on Liberty and Freedom by the Obama regime, the story of Catherine Engelbrecht may be the most vile, and criminal.

Catherine Engelbrecht heads up the King Street Patriots, a Houston, Texas area Tea Party Group, and is President and founder of True The Vote, a group dedicated to stopping voter fraud.

Voter fraud runs rampant in the Houston area, which has a huge number of democrat voters. There has been strong resistance to any efforts that would clean up the corruption and stop the voter fraud.

Now we are learning just how strong the assault on King Street and True the Vote, as well as Catherine personally, has been.

Not only has Obama’s IRS assaulted Engelbrecht’s Liberty and Freedom, so have other agencies including the FBI, ATF, OSHA, and even a Texas agency.

Engelbrecht talked with Megyn Kelly earlier today about this full on assault:

Jillian Kay Melchior has an extensive write-up on the criminal assault on these Houston patriots:

Catherine Engelbrecht’s tale has all the markings of a classic conspiracy theory: She says she thinks that because of her peaceful political activity, she and her family was targeted for scrutiny by hostile federal agencies.

Yet as news emerges that the Internal Revenue Service wielded its power to obstruct conservative groups, Catherine’s story becomes credible — and chilling. It also raises questions about whether other federal agencies have used their executive powers to target those deemed political enemies.

Before the Engelbrecht family’s three-year ordeal began, Catherine says, “I had no real expectation or preparation for the blood sport that American politics is.” Sounding weary on the phone, she continues: “It’s all been a through-the-looking-glass experience.

Cleta Mitchell, a lawyer who specializes in representing conservative organizations, says that the Engelbrecht family’s experience is “just the tip of the iceberg. . . . I think there’s definitely a Chicago-politics-style enemies list in this administration, and I think it permeates this branch of the federal government.”

* * *

The Engelbrechts were not, until recently, particularly political. They had been busy running a tiny manufacturing plant in Rosenberg, Texas. After years of working for others, Bryan, a trained machinist, wanted to open his own shop, so he saved his earnings, bought a computerized numerical-control machine, which does precision metal-cutting, and began operating out of his garage. “That was about 20 years ago,” he says. “Now, we’re up to about 30 employees.

For two decades, Bryan and Catherine drove to work in their big truck. Engelbrecht Manufacturing Inc. now operates out of a 20,000-square-foot metal building on the prairie just outside of Houston, where a “semi-pet coyote lives in the field just behind us,” Bryan says. They went back to their country home each night. Stress was rare, and life was good.

But the 2008 elections left Catherine feeling frustrated about the debates, which seemed to be a string of superficial talking points. So she began attending tea-party meetings, enjoying the political discussion. A spunky woman known for her drive, Catherine soon wanted to do more than just talk. She joined other tea partiers and decided to volunteer at the ballot box. Working as an alternate judge at the polls in 2009 in Fort Bend County, Texas, Catherine says, she was appalled and dismayed to witness everything from administrative snafus to outright voter fraud.

These formative experiences prompted her to found two organizations: King Street Patriots, a local community group that hosts weekly discussions on personal and economic freedoms; and True the Vote, which seeks to prevent voter fraud and trains volunteers to work as election monitors. It also registers voters, attempts to validate voter-registration lists, and pursues fraud reports to push for prosecution if illegal activity has occurred.

Bryan says that when his wife began focusing on politics, working less often at the manufacturing shop, “I told her, ‘You have my undying support.’” He pauses, then adds in his thick Texan drawl: “Little did I know she’d take it this far!

In July 2010, Catherine filed with the IRS seeking tax-exempt status for her organizations. Shortly after, the troubles began.

That winter, the Federal Bureau of Investigation came knocking with questions about a person who had attended a King Street Patriots event once. Based on sign-in sheets, the organization discovered that the individual in question had attended an event, but “it was a come-and-go thing,” and they had no further information on hand about him. Nevertheless, the FBI also made inquiries about the person to the office manager, who was a volunteer.

The King Street Patriots weren’t the only ones under scrutiny. On January 11, the IRS visited the Engelbrechts’ shop and conducted an on-site audit of both their business and their personal returns, Catherine says.

What struck us as odd about that,” she adds,“is the lengths to which the auditor went to try to — it seemed like — to try to find some error. . . . She wanted to go out and see [our] farm, she wanted to count the cattle, she wanted to look at the fence line. It was a very curious three days. She was as kind as she could be, and she was doing her job . . . [but]it was strange.

Bryan adds: “It was kind of funny to us. I mean, we weren’t laughing that much, but we knew we were squeaky clean. Our CPA’s a good guy. And who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor: I got a little bit of a refund.”

Two months later, the IRS initiated the first round of questions for True the Vote. Catherine painstakingly answered them, knowing that nonprofit status would help with the organization’s credibility, donors, and grant applications. In October, the IRS requested additional information. And whenever Catherine followed up with IRS agents about the status of True the Vote’s application, “there was always a delay that our application was going to be up next, and it was just around the corner,” she says,

As this was occurring, the FBI continued to phone King Street Patriots. In May 2011, agents phoned wondering “how they were doing.” The FBI made further inquiries in June, November, and December asking whether there was anything to report.

The situation escalated in 2012. That February, True the Vote received a third request for information from the IRS, which also sent its first questionnaire to King Street Patriots. Catherine says the IRS had “hundreds of questions — hundreds and hundreds of questions.” The IRS requested every Facebook post and Tweet she had ever written. She received questions about her family, whether she’d ever run for political office, and which organizations she had spoken to.

It’s no great secret that the IRS is considered to be one of the more serious [federal agencies],” Catherine says. “When you get a call from the IRS, you don’t take it lightly. So when you’re asked questions that seem to imply a sense of disapproval, it has a very chilling effect.

On the same day they received the questions from the IRS, Catherine says, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) launched an unscheduled audit of their machine shop, forcing the Engelbrechts to drop everything planned for that day. Though the Engelbrechts have a Class 7 license, which allows them to make component parts for guns, they do not manufacture firearms. Catherine said that while the ATF had a right to conduct the audit, “it was odd that they did it completely unannounced, and they took five, six hours. . . . It was so extensive. It just felt kind of weird.”

That was in February. In July, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration paid a visit to Engelbrecht Manufacturing while Bryan, Catherine, and their children were out of town. The OSHA inspector talked with the managerial staff and employees, inspecting the premises minutely. But Bryan says the agent found only “little Mickey Mouse stuff, like, ‘You have safety glasses on, but not the right kind; the forklift has a seatbelt, but not the right kind.’” Yet Catherine and Bryan said the OSHA inspector complimented them on their tightly run shop and said she didn’t know why she had been sent to examine it.

Not long after, the tab arrived. OSHA was imposing $25,000 in fines on Engelbrecht Manufacturing. They eventually worked it down to $17,500, and Bryan says they may have tried to contest the fines to drive them even lower, but “we didn’t want to make any more waves, because we don’t know [how much further] OSHA could reach.

Bottom line is, it hurt,” he says. Fifteen thousand dollars is “not an insignificant amount to this company. It might be to other companies, but we’re still considered small, and it came at a time when business was slow, so instead of giving an employee a raise or potentially hiring another employee, I’m writing a check to our government.

A few months later, True the Vote became the subject of congressional scrutiny. In September, Senator Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) wrote to Thomas Perez, then the assistant attorney general of the civil rights division at the Department of Justice (who has now been nominated for labor secretary). “As you know, an organization called ‘True the Vote,’ which is an offshoot of the Tea Party, is leading a voter suppression campaign in many states,” Boxer wrote, adding that “this type of intimidation must stop. I don’t believe this is ‘True the Vote.’ I believe it’s ‘Stop the Vote.’

And in October, Representative Elijah Cummings (D., Md.), the ranking minority member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, attacked True the Vote in a letter. He wrote that “some have suggested that your true goal is not voter integrity, but voter suppression against thousands of legitimate voters who traditionally vote for Democratic candidates.” He added that: “If these efforts are intentional, politically motivated, and widespread across multiple states, they could amount to a criminal conspiracy to deny legitimate voters their constitutional rights.” He also decried True the Vote on MSNBC and CNN.

Catherine now says that she “absolutely” thinks that because she worked against voter fraud, the Left was irked and decided to target her.

Read more here.

This is mind-blowing, but shows EXACTLY how far liberals will go to destroy those who try to stop their corrupt ways. We all know voter fraud and voter intimidation are staples of the democrat party. Have been for over a century.

As we saw when some states passed voter ID laws, laws requiring someone to show their proper ID before voting, democrats will go to any length, including going to court, and pulling out their shop-worn race cards, to thwart any attempt by concerned Americans to make sure the vote is actually legitimate.

What we have is an out of control, thug government. It’s unaccountable to the people. In fact, our own government sees the people as it’s enemies. Not good.

All of these criminals must be brought to justice. Americans MUST take our government back, by whatever means necessary. We can no longer trust any element of government to have America’s best interest at heart.

JESUS WEPT: Obama’s IRS Demands Pro-Life Group Disclose Frequency and Content of Members’ PRAYERS

IRS_Prayers

By Gary P Jackson

The more we look at the tactics used by the Obama regime to assault political enemies, the more evil we discover.

News came out last week that Obama’s IRS thugs had demanded a pro-life group, the Coalition for Life of Iowa, not only disclose the content of their members’ PRAYERS, but how long their members spent praying!

Trying to find words to describe this illegal assault on the First Amendment isn’t easy. I think Sissy Willis says it much better than I ever could: Jesus wept:

From Yahoo News:

On June 22, 2009, the Coalition for Life of Iowa received a letter from the IRS office in Cincinnati, Ohio, that oversees tax exemptions requesting details about how often members pray and whether their prayers are “considered educational.”

Please explain how all of your activities, including the prayer meetings held outside of Planned Parenthood, are considered educational as defined under 501(c)(3),” reads the letter, made public by the Thomas More Society, a public interest law firm that collected evidence about the IRS practices. “Organizations exempt under 501(c)(3) may present opinions with scientific or medical facts. Please explain in detail the activities at these prayer meetings. Also, please provide the percentage of time your organizations spends on prayer groups as compared with the other activities of the organization.”

The IRS is currently under fire for allegedly targeting conservative groups that applied for nonprofit status in recent years. In response, two IRS officials have stepped down, including Acting Commissioner Steven Miller.

That portion of the questionnaire, in which the IRS also asked about signs the group intended to carry at rallies at Planned Parenthood offices, is below:

IRSPrayers

In response, the group’s attorneys at Mosher & Associates, a firm based in Chicago, responded:

Coalition for Life 1

Coalition for Life 2

During the hearings last week Congressman Aaron Schock (R-Illinois) asked disgraced IRS stooge Steve Miller about this assault on Liberty and Freedom, as expected, Miller played dumb:

Unbelievable.

Our right to worship as we please is one of our most basic rights. The pilgrims left England to escape state run religion, and our founders valued religious freedom so much, they wrote it into the Constitution.

Our Declaration of Independence goes even further, acknowledging that all of our rights come from God. The opening reads:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

It’s clear our founders understood the power of God, and the importance of having God in one’s heart. So much so, they made it illegal for the government to interfere with this essential right.

Sissy Willis also asked God to help us. We all need to pray that God delivers us from the evils our out of control government is raining down on us all.

Breaking Video: More Criminality From Obama’s Department of Justice; Targeted Fox News’ James Rosen, Two Others

James Rosen

By Gary P Jackson

A real bombshell dropped today. It seems Barack Obama’s Justice Department targeted, and even looked to jail, Fox News’ James Rosen, as well as fellow reporter William LaJeuness, and producer Mike Levine. All of this seems to have stemmed from Rosen’s investigation of the Fast and Furious crimes committed by Obama and Eric Holder, where they outfitted narco-terrorists with weapons, in an attempt to used violence committed by those terrorists as a way to assault the Second Amendment, and law abiding gun owners in America.

Megyn Kelly is LIVID in this bombshell report:

Noted Democrat Senator Who Urged IRS to Attack Tea Party Says IRS Scandal a Big Deal with More Info to Come!

no shit sherlock

Gary P Jackson

This is just too much. Marxist democrat Max Baucus, one of nearly a dozen Marxist Senators who urged the IRS to attack the Tea Party now says he has “a hunch” more about this scandal will come out. Ya think?

From Washington Secrets:

Senior Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, who recently slapped Obamacare as a “train wreck,” believes that the IRS scandal is just beginning and that “a lot more” damaging information will be revealed, likely at congressional hearings.

I have a hunch that a lot more is going to come out, frankly,” Baucus, whose pending retirement seems to have freed him up to speak bluntly, told Bloomberg Government’s “Capitol Gains” TV show.

It’s broader than the current focus. And I think it’s important that we have the hearings, and I think that will encourage other information to come out that has not yet come out. I suspect that we will learn more in the next several days, maybe the next couple three weeks which adds more context to all of this,” added Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee.

[ … ]

Max Baucus on the IRS scandal:

I have a hunch that a lot more is going to come out, frankly. It’s broader than the current focus. And I think it’s important that we have the hearings, and I think that will encourage other information to come out that has not yet come out. I suspect that we will learn more in the next several days, maybe the next couple three weeks which adds more context to all of this.

[ … ]

Max Baucus on the IRS targeting groups for political reasons:

This actually leads to new momentum for tax reform because this is an important provision in the code. And this provision has raised lots of questions now, and also how it’s tied with another significant provision, the so-called section 527. And that’s – that’s – that’s going to help I think encourage more momentum for tax reform.

More here.

Remember, Baucus is one of the Marxist crapweasels who helped create ObamaCare, and now that he sees what a massive disaster it is, is running away, to live on his fabulous tax payer funded pension, instead of facing the wrath of angry Americans!

You simply can’t make these things up.

Tea Party Leader Tom Wazistowski Describes IRS Assault on His Liberty: “This is Nazi Germany”

obama-hitler-83970483579_xlarge

Ein Volk! Ein Reich! Ein Obama!

By Gary P Jackson

Powerful exchange between Tea Party leader Tom Wazistowski and Neil Cavuto. Wazistowski goes into great detail describing the kind of tactics the IRS used to harass his Tea Party group. Wazistowski’s group is one that has many other Tea Party groups as members. At one point the IRS noted one of Wazistowski’s members had a book club. The IRS demanded not only a list of books that were read, but a book report on each and every one! The lady reportedly sent the IRS the books and told them to “read them yourselves“!

Wazistowski says “This is Nazi Germany!”

Frankly, I’m not even sure the Nazis in Germany employed such despicable tactics! This reminds me of the Ray Bradbury novel Fahrenheit 451 which was made into a movie of the same name. It foretold of an oppressive future not unlike where we in America are headed now.
