"We have replaced rule of law with moral relativism; we have replaced truth with political correctness; in all the double speak and double think we have become increasingly unsteady about how We the People factor in to a future left in the hands of our current leaders."

True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht: Beware the Obama Justice Department

President Obama's plan to replace the first black United States Attorney General (Eric Holder) with the first black female Attorney General (Loretta Lynch) resulted in an illuminating confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on January 29, 2015.

True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht appeared at the confirmation hearing to raise awareness to the Obama Justice Department's failure to adequately and fairly investigate the abuses carried out by the Internal Revenue Service.

Engelbrecht memorably urged the Senate to consider Lynch's confirmation carefully and ensure the American People that she can bring the reforms to the Department that it so seriously requires.

Engelbrecht concluded:

"In a 2009 speech, General Holder called America 'a nation of cowards.' If you remember nothing else from my comments, remember this – I am not a coward, I am not a victim, I am a messenger for all those Americans who love our country, love our fellow countrymen, and pray for a better tomorrow. I am here to say our country is, right now, at a tipping point. We have replaced rule of law with moral relativism; we have replaced truth with political correctness; in all the double speak and double think we have become increasingly unsteady about how We the People factor in to a future left in the hands of our current leaders."

Amen!
