Don't mess with True the Vote's Catherine Engelbrecht!

Catherine exemplifies the American ideal.

The slogan Don't Mess with Texas is widely and rightly known.

Alas, the Far Left and its minions in federal government agencies did not realize that messing with Catherine Angelbrecht is foolish too.

See Jillian Kay Melchior's "True Scandal: A tea-party group targeted by Democrats gets attention from the IRS – and the FBI, OSHA, and the ATF" at www.nationalreview.com/article/348756/true-scandal-jillian-kay-melchior.

Melchior's article concludes:

"...Catherine says the harassment [by federal government agencies] has forced her to seriously reconsider whether her political activity is worth the government harassment she's faced. "'I left a thriving family business with my husband that I loved, to do something I didn't necessarily love, but [which] I thought had to be done,' she says. 'But I really think if we don't do this, if we don't stand up and speak now, there might not [always] be that chance.'

"Her husband offers an additional observation: 'If you knew my wife, you'd know she doesn't back down from anybody. They picked on the wrong person when they started picking on her.'"

Take it from the writer, who had the pleasure of meeting Catherine in Washington, D.C. a few years ago as she received a Ronald Reagan award: that husband is right!

Don't confuse humility with weakness.

Catherine exemplifies the American ideal.

To tyranny, she won't yield or kneel.

She'll stand up, not back down, no doubt.

Why am I sure?

As I ended an article titled "King Street Patriots are working for election integrity" and dated March 30, 2011 (www.renewamerica.com/columns/gaynor/110330):

"Fittingly, Catherine Engelbrecht, the mother/wife/businesswoman heading King Street Patriots, closed the National Summit by displaying a 'belt of truth' that had been sent to her as a supporter and referenced Ephesisans 6.

"Ephesians 6:10-20 (http://bible.org/seriespage/spiritual-warfare-ephesians-610-20) states:

'10 Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

'14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, 19 and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.'

"Thanks be to God, Mrs. Engelbrecht and her fellow King Street Patriots have not been intimidated and the national summit they called brought people from 26 other states who intend to do much more than hope for fair elections in the future."

God bless Catherine.

God already blessed America by sending Catherine.

America sorely needed her to lead the way to protect the American way.
