The fact that nobody is in jail over all of this... and the fact that our president has not been charged with a crime or impeachment makes it clear that our republic is lost.

DISMANTLE the tyrannical arm of the totalitarian administration. Lerner should be in prison.

TREASON - agency-abetted, agenda-driven, representative-enabled.

“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.”

http://www.usa.gov/directory/federal/index.shtml?id=60031

All assets of these totalitarians should be confiscated for crimes against the republic.

What rule of law?

Socialists desire to practice legal plunder, not illegal plunder. Socialists, like all other monopolists, desire to make the law their own weapon. And when once the law is on the side of socialism, how can it be used against socialism? For when plunder is abetted by the law, it does not fear your courts, your gendarmes, and your prisons. Rather, it may call upon them for help. - Bastiat

http://www.usdebtclock.org

—That whenever ANY Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

On 3 occasions Cummings sent letters to Catherine Engelbrecht regarding an investigation.
Consensus of committee that they needed to be investigated.

Been watching this from the start...

It is clear that the Dems on the Committee are more interested in SMEARING the witnesses. Engelbrecht has come under direct fire from US Representatives Connoly (Dumas), Cartwright and Cummings.

Cummings sent her letters on the Committee stationary saying that she was going to be investigated...

FILTHY LYING SOB!!

This is a DNC coverup and DNC criminality.

Cummings is apparently guilty of misprision of felony
and perhaps subornation of perjury in the coverup.

If I were Cathy Engelbrecht, I would remind the Dems on this committee that she is an American citizen and that THEY work for HER!! Tell Cummings that he’s a racist bigot attacking a white lady!!

Yeah.... I would just call him a liar and tell him that I don’t appreciate him targeting me. And that if he ever does it again I’d sue his ass in Oklahoma District Court. That is where this has to go.

Did you notice Cummings asked Catherine Engelbrecht about Tru the vote in the hearing today and repeatedly she stated she does not place poll workers, the organization educates, and does not place volunteers.

A better way to fix it is not to rewrite the law. It is to throw the people who did the targeting in jail. Then call it fixed.

Cummings and others of the CBC try to promote the lie that True The Vote placed pole volunteers in Black and Hispanic heavy voting districts and the True The Vote witness kept telling them they had no authority to place pole watchers and that they only were educating people. Cummings and the CBC is trying to promote the lie of voter suppression by True The Vote!

Cummings asks if poll workers were sent out to polls equally in North Carolina.

Response: Tru the Vote provides training, but has no control over where volunteers may offer assistance.

Over and over Cummings attempts to change the mission of the Tru the vote organization & does not seem to understand the stated mission.

She was an Oklahoma state representative. You know.... 35+ years ago when I registered to vote I registered Democrat. In oklahoma, often there weren’t republicans on the ticket for many offices. It was an extremely conservative but democrat state. Now it is the reddest state in the union. many of us in Oklahoma have taken Cleta’s path.

Obama has been ordering Engelbrecht audited and visited and sued around the clock by local DemoHacks for founding True the Vote and the King Street Patriots. I've met Cathy, she's absolutely great and very courageous -- and she looks damn good, too. Another of those conservative businesswomen you'd never mistake for an Occupy hag or a Sheehanesque moonbat.

Cathy's just the best and deserves our support.

This is the complete video set for the hearing. I would suggest everyone take the time to watch it. Although clips have merit and demonstrate a brief quote – the entire hearing is well worth the time to watch in context.

It is chilling to see how far the government would go to diminish or stomp out free speech. Those new rules from the IRS will definitely affect elections. Becky Gerritson, during an interview with Cavuto, identified various terms that can’t be used 30 days out from an election. @ 3:56 – oppose, vote, reject, candidate’s name, political party.
She also mentions in the part one video at around 35 min.
