True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht, who believes that she has been “targeted because of my political beliefs” by the IRS, told Frank Gaffney yesterday that she President Obama should be impeached because his “political machine” makes “Watergate seem like a stubbed toe.”
In 2012, Engelbrecht’s group challenged the voter registrations of people it believed it was committing fraud – most of its claims were filed in heavily black and Latino districts, and many were frivolous.
Speaking with Gaffney on Secure Freedom Radio, Engelbrecht claimed that she was being targeted by “a political machine that is used to teach citizens to be the subjects and that we are best to stay in line.” The ultimate goal, she warned, “is for the establishment of a permanent political class separate from we the people.”
Engelbrecht: The bottom line, I think, is that we have entered a time where the government is no longer a body of the people, it is a political machine that is used to teach citizens to be the subjects and that we are best to stay in line because the power bases and the machines that they support don’t have any intention of going anywhere. We are entering a time where if we allow ourselves to forget why we believe what we believe, it will be wiped clean from our memories. And that’s a heady statement, but it is true. It is true. That is the longer play, is for the establishment of a permanent political class separate and apart from we the people.
Gaffney: Is this now in your judgment, this pattern of behavior, of misconduct and selective enforcement of the law and other abuses of our constitutional procedure, prize you to the point where at the minimum we should see the government’s purse strings pulled and perhaps high crimes and misdemeanors considered by the Congress?
Engelbrecht: Absolutely. I’m not sure at what point we wake up. It is happening right before our eyes, things that make Watergate seem like a stubbed toe and yet, it rolls on.
