King Street Patriots founder Catherine Engelbrecht, one of many conservatives who claim they were unfairly targeted by the IRS when applying for tax-exempt status, told Congress Thursday that she is more determined ever than before to stand before you and to all of America and say that I will not retreat.
This government attacked me because of my political beliefs, but I refuse to be cast as a victim, she said. I am not a victim, because a victim has no options. I do have options, and I intend to use them all to the fullest extent of my capabilities. As an American citizen, I am part of a country that still believes in freedom of speech, Engelbrecht said. She pledged to press the issue in every legal way possible, including filing suit against the IRS, and vowed to continue to speak out here in Congress and all across this country. No American citizen should be willing to accept a government that uses its power against its own people, she added.
In her prepared remarks, Engelbrecht said she refuses to let a precedent be set that allows members of Congress, particularly Cummings, ranking member of the Oversight committee, to misrepresent this governing body in an effort to demonize and intimidate citizens.

We need more people like this woman to stand firm against this tyrannical government!
Including the Second Amendment option with the First ought to get their attention...it may be the only thing that will do so.
I believe so.
True the Vote
Indeed, WE ALL need to take a firm stand.
Truth. You speak it...
Catherine Engelbrecht: speaking truth to power. She is a courageous woman.
Catherine Engelbrecht, please run for office so that I can vote for you.
All we need are a few more and then the ball will roll.
WE ARE ALL Catherine Engelbrecht...................
These patriots have been criminally attacked. This is NOT some bureaucratic misunderstanding of complex rules; this is corrupt political use of Government entities (i.e. IRS, DOL, ATF, DOJ) to punish an 'enemy list'. This is WAY beyond a smidgen of corruption and was on the list of items that Nixon was impeached for.
House of Representatives ... DO YOUR JOB!
Watched the hearing.
It was sad and embarrassing to watch the dems try and divert, evade and shout “Look! squirrel!” at every turn.
It was offensive when they tried to insult the witnesses, and in the case of King, to basically say she brought the FBI, EPA, IRS, OSAH and BATFE on herself.
I must say I was heartened by the backbone of the Repubs on the committee. . .they really attacked. . .now follow up is key.
I would have liked to watch that. Any videos out there that you know of?
Looking for more video of this hearing.
“Look squirrel”. From a democrats mouth equals “we’re all nuts!”
When you find them I would appreciate a ping. Thanks!
