Why is the Obama administration using the IRS, OSHA, ATF, and FBI to harass tea party member Catherine Engelbrecht?
Catherine Engelbrecht is a tea party member who lives in Richmond, Texas. She and her family own a small manufacturing business. As far as I’m aware, Ms. Engelbrecht and her family are law abiding citizens who work hard and pay their taxes.
Ms. Engelbrecht founded a conservative organization called True the Vote. After she sent the group’s application for nonprofit status to the IRS, the IRS went three years without responding.
But it’s much worse than that.
During those three years, Ms. Engelbrecht, her family, and their small business have been audited by the IRS, and investigated by the FBI’s domestic terrorism unit, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
If just one of those agencies had investigated Ms. Engelbrecht, her family, and their business, it might or might not have been due to random chance – although even one such investigation could be the result of political motivations.
Two such agencies based on random chance? Highly unlikely.
Three such agencies based on randomness? No way.
Four agencies? For a small, family owned business? That goes well beyond anything that’s necessary to prove that these investigations are politically motivated, and not the result of random chance.
President Obama is the big boss of all of these agencies, and he once said “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors.” Obama has the authority to hire and fire the people who work at these agencies. They follow his lead.
Obama once said (the bolding is mine):
“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’ — if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election — then I think it’s going to be harder. And that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2nd.”
As I’ve pointed out before, Obama has told a huge number of lies. But in this case, he told the truth – he is indeed using these government agencies to “punish his enemies.”
Going even further, I’d say that just about everything that Obama has done, he did either to “punish his enemies,” or to “reward his friends.”
When looked at in this context, almost everything that Obama has done is explainable (but never excusable). He’s always busy either “punishing his enemies” and/or “rewarding his friends.” That, as stated by Obama in his own words, is his entire political philosophy.
And it is a philosophy which is contrary to every principle and idea upon which the United States was founded.
It goes against the Constitutional oath that Obama took when he was inaugurated.
It’s a philosophy that has no place in a free and civilized country.
