Skip to comments.Why did the Obama administration target Catherine Engelbrecht personally?

The key question that needs to be answered now is...WHY WAS CATHERINE TARGETED PERSONALLY?
Bell asked: "Was there anything in particular that you think may have triggered that special attention?"
"We believe that much of it had ultimately had to do with True the Vote activities involving our 'Verify the Recall' project to ensure that petition-gathering connected with actions in Wisconsin to remove Governor Scott Walker were following the rules. This was obviously seen as a threat by liberal organizations and unions bent upon recalling him.
"It's important to understand that our purpose and actions in this project were directed one hundred percent to ensuring fairness in the established legal process, not to engage in political advocacy for Governor Walker. True the Vote is a non-partisan organization and will work with any organization, liberal or conservative, that shares our priority of election integrity."
The effort to recall Governor Walker officially began on November 15, 2011, however. It may explain why Catherine's family business was targeted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, but it does not explain why the FBI Domestic Terrorism Bureau suddenly contacted King Street Patriots in December 2010 and the Internal Revenue Service suddenly audited Catherine, her husband and their family business in January 2011, since that contact and audit predated the recall campaign against Governor Walker by nearly a year.

Prolly at the top of the list
I believe she was specifically targeted for her efforts in “True the Vote.”
The Obozo admin. was intimidated that her org. was training folks to poll watch.
Seeing their efforts were to pervert the vote, perhaps they felt she’d be a threat in uncovering the Obozo administration’s illegalities.
My lil ol pinion.
Anybody out there STILL think there’s a PEACEFUL, DEMOCRATIC solution anymore?
The reason for the targeting is simple. One of the Illegal’s main goals is to steal every election he can, by whatever means possible. True the Vote fundamentally threatens this criminal scheme. Thus, it must be stamped out.
In the first paragraph Bauer charged that there was a "Republican assault on voting rights....with deep roots in the party's history and politics" led by the Republican National Committee "aided by organizations closely associated with the party and its goals, such as True the Vote." True the Vote is demonized in the six-page, single-spaced memorandum and, according to Bauer, it was "assisting the effort [to disrupt] the voter registration process" by purporting to train and deploy to polling places around the country 'poll watchers' on the watch for 'fraud'...." Section IV of the memorandum is devoted to True the Vote and begins, "Since the 2010-midterm elections, Texas-based True the Vote (TTV) has been an outspoken member of the voter fraud community and is the social group focused on ending 'vote fraud.' It is the first group since the Karl Rove inspired American Center for Voting Rights was discovered to be a Republican front in 2007."
Bob Bauer should be in prison. He also orchestrated the fake birth certificate release.
When you know you are a looser and have to cheat to win, guess that says it all, doesn’t it?
Now the big problem we have on our hands is how to stop the next looser from doing the same thing, should there ever be another election. Odumbo will more than likely use his Marshall Law threat and name himself “dictator” for the rest of his life.
This is the real story far beyond the IRS scandal. This particular case demonstrates that there was coordination and orchestration of the targeting by a number of federal agencies. They were working together to destroy someone. How did this happen and who directed the coordination?
It doesn’t appear that 0-bama is too unnerved by the scandals. As Machiavelli said it is better to be feared than loved. Although many of us expected some targeting for opposing the tyrant, the extent of his abuses is astounding and almost unprecedented (maybe FDR or Wilson are close). Actually living though the abuses or seeing friends go though them will have a profound chilling effect on donations, communications, and activism.
The tyrant is hoping that self censorship, repression, and the perceived and actual threat of retaliation will sufficiently exceed any loss of support from a backlash.
Because they knew she was against them. They had her phone records. They also had the records of every tea party person. This was a campaign where they knew who what and where. We should not fall for their lies. Obama’s SS agents knew because of domestic spying.
How exactly do you go about telling the IRS to FO!?
“The following questions are unconstitutional intrusions on my First Amendment Rights and have no bearing on my eligibility for tax exempt status.”
Orchestrated shakedown. There are some very ugly scabs about to be ripped off. Very good article.
Because, King Street Patriots and True the Vote were working in areas dominated by Al Green, Gene Green and Sheilah Jackson Lee. That would be the 9th, 18th and 29th congressional districts of Texas.
Yes. The Framers gave us two. We have the impeachment power and the states may call an Article V convention.
We rebelled against Britain because our only other option was to accept tyranny. There were no formal, political paths available within the Brit constitution to seek redress.
You forgot “and this is my gun!”
