Courageous Texas Woman a 21st Century Rosa Parks?

By Ben Barrack

Catherine_Engelbrecht_1Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – If the 21st century had a Rosa Parks, her name might just be Catherine Engelbrecht. Engelbrecht leads Houston-based groups the King Street Patriots and True the Vote, both very patriotic organizations.

On today’s show, I contrast the incredibly disparate, discriminatory, and unjust treatment received by Engelbrecht versus that received by Malik Obama, the brother of the President of the United States:

The mission of True the Vote is to sniff out voter fraud. Here is an excerpt from the group’s ‘About’ page:

We are working to restore integrity to the American system of electing its leaders. With True the Vote, we have, “deconstructed the entire process, focusing on educating voters, examining the registry, recruiting, training and mobilizing election workers and poll watchers, training how to collect data all along the way, then use the data to shape government action and legislative agendas to support desperately needed election code reform.”

Ben_BarrackDemocrats don’t like a level playing field. They prefer an environment in which voter fraud can thrive because, well, voter fraud tends to benefit… Democrats. For this, Engelbrecht is being intimidated by her government. She actually calls it the ‘weaponizing of government’ and has been paid several visits by the FBI, the ATF, OSHA, and the IRS. She has been audited multiple times and Rep. Elijah Cummings has attempted to intimidate her with multiple letters on House Oversight Committee letterhead. Engelbrecht has since filed an ethics complaint against Cummings after she testified at this recent hearing:

Conversely, Malik Obama, who founded the Barack H. Obama Foundation (BHOF), received his 501(c)(3) status in less than 30 days, also having it illegally, retroactively backdated by 38 months, courtesy of Lois Lerner.

Yes, Malik Obama is black and Engelbrecht is white but unlike the treatment of Rosa Parks, that’s not the issue relative to the disparate treatment. You see, Malik Obama has extensive links to groups, individuals, and entities that are connected to terrorism. He is the Executive Secretary of the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO), an arm of Omar al-Bashir’s Sudanese government. Al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity and Sudan is on the State Department list of State Sponsors of Terrorism.

Malik’s boss with the IDO is a man named Suar al-Dahab, who is the vice president of the Union for Good, which has been identified by the U.S. Treasury Department as a terrorist organization.

Engelbrecht is refusing to back down (see video above); she is refusing to move to the back of the bus. She is being discriminated against not based on race but apparently on the basis of being a law-abiding citizen.
