Not a smidgen of corruption…
Yeah that is what Obama said to O’Reilly on “Super Bowl Sunday”. Tell that to those who have been under attack by the Federal Government by simply trying to obey the current tax code. So what is an American Citizen to do when their government decides to harass and attack its citizens?
You see the opponents of Freedom and Liberty have been really pissed off since the Supreme Court ruled in the Citizens United case. You know where the SCOTUS said that Political spending is a form of protected speech under the First Amendment.
Well that has sent the freedom haters in the Obama administration into a tizzy and they have been on the warpath ever since. And the fact that because of the tax and spend policies and Obamacare produced the shellacking in the 2010 midterm elections, Obama and his minions were not about to let that happen again. And they were going to use every tool in the Federal Government toolbox to insure conservative groups, who in 2010 were an unorganized bunch at best, were never going to give Obama and friends another shellacking.
So the IRS, ATF, FBI and all of the alphabet soup of governmental agencies went forth throughout the land determined to delay, prevent, harass, and if need be in prison conservative individuals and groups. One such group was True the Vote and its founder Catherine Engelbrecht. What is True the Vote?
True the Vote is a non-partisan initiative to educate and train citizens to work within our electoral system to restore honor and integrity to the electoral process.
So what is the issue with True the Vote?
Yeah that is part of it Hugo…but more to the point is the monopoly on gigantic campaign contributions used to be the sole domain of the American Unions. Now the playing field has been leveled a bit by the Citizens United decision, and Democrats and their friends don’t like it…not one bit.
So what has the Obama regime been doing to satisfy their desire to rid America of conservative political groups? Well they’ve been hard at work using Government agencies to ruin the lives of American citizens who dare to exercise their Constitutional Rights as a citizen. The regime has made it known that it wants conservative to suffer at the hands of these bureaucrats. Will there be a smoking gun found….NO. But there doesn’t have to be, not with the affinity of thought used by all those involved. But you don’t have to go far to start connecting the dots as Lois Lerner’s emails have shed some light on how the policies to target conservative have been implemented.

And that is what Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-VA) demanded of Catherine during her testimony over whether her business should have been regularly inspected by OSHA after she registered her group, King Street Patriots. She was to submit to the abuse and cower in fear of the Government.
Now Catherine’s organization only trained individuals to be poll watchers they never assigned folks to a particular voting site as Mr Cummings couldn’t seem to understand. Catherine Engelbrecht was targeted by the IRS, FBI, OSHA, and BATF all after she filed for tax exempt status. But that was all a little coincidence.
Now thank goodness that Catherine has refuse to submit to these bully tactics from the Obama regime and his friends in Congress. If fact she has filed an ethics complaint against Mr Cummings.
These tyrants should be shown the door to the exit of OUR Government. They have completely forgotten who exactly they work for and the reason they are in Congress to begin with. This is a Government FOR the People BY the People. It is long past time to forcibly remind these tyrants who exactly is in charge…and let remember to show them the exit in November 2014.
