BABE HUGGETT: Not willing to be victimized or intimidated by a spurious lawsuit claiming failure to register as a political corporation, reveal non-existent prohibited corporate campaign contributions along with its equally non-existent donor list brought against them by the Texas Democratic Party, the non-profit, 501(c)(4) organization, citizen-volunteer and citizen funded King Street Patriots, led by Catherine Engelbrecht, filed a countersuit in Austin on Monday, November 15 claiming defamation and requesting that those parts of the Texas election code restricting free speech be ruled unconstitutional.
The Democratic Party’s vehemence was triggered by the King Street Patriots’ dedicated uncovering of voter fraud on the rolls and its non-partisan True the Vote initiative, which seeks to assure fair and free elections for voters of all political parties through education and training of poll watchers and poll workers to look out for additional voter fraud at the polls.
Some of the election abuses uncovered and documented by the King Street Patriots have included multiple voter registrations, non-citizen voter registrations, fraudulent voter information, forged voter signatures, election officials verbally bullying voters to either change their ballot choices or vote a straight Democratic ticket up to and including actually manipulating the voting machines for the voters and elected officials, like Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, campaigning directly outside polling places. Other documented Democratic Party member abuses include a lunatic minister and a self-proclaimed leader of the New Black Panthers along with his henchmen entering polling places to verbally and physically intimidate poll watchers.
The Democratic Party is joined by two front groups in a lawsuit and an ethics complaint against Catherine Engelbrecht and the King Street Patriots. The two groups are Texans for Public Justice and Texans Together Education Fund. Both groups receive their money from the Open Society Institute (OSI). OSI was founded in 1993 by George Soros to “Build Vibrant & Tolerant Democracies” so it is ironic to see that tolerance is not extended to groups dedicated to fighting voter fraud. Texans Together Education Fund’s subsidiary is Houston Votes currently itself accused by the Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector office of voter fraud registration.
BABE HUGGETT (Reporting from Houston): Lost in all the liberal-left/media smear machine tactics aimed at Houston’s King Street Patriots for uncovering blatant Democratic Party voter fraud within minority communities in Harris County is the fact that the King Street Patriots developed an initiative called True the Vote dedicated to ensuring that elections are free and fair.
True the Vote’s initiative game plan is to get concerned citizens actively involved in the election process to combat voter fraud. While fraudulent votes are a main worry anywhere, unwatched polls, corrupted judges and clerks are also a main, but underreported, venue for fraud. The True the Vote initiative provides resources, instructions and the training to ensure that those Americans concerned enough to get actively involved in the election process, know their legal requirements and rights at the polling place.
BABE HUGGETT: Meeting the bullying tactics of the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice with it’s suit against them for “voter intimidation” head on, the King Street Patriots held a press conference on Thursday, Oct. 28 openly inviting the DOJ to send in, “…federal election monitors and staff from the Community Relations Service…” to see for themselves the unbiased dedication and honesty of the True the Vote initiative trained poll watchers, who have come under increasing verbal and physical abuse for reporting irregularities at polls notorious for voter fraud.
King St Patriots Fight Back
Speaking for the King Street Patriots was their Liberty Institute lawyer, Jonathan Saenz, who enumerated the harassment the poll watchers have endured from verbal abuse and veiled threats all the way up to being physically manhandled and assaulted.
Saenz said, “We are so concerned by these attacks against volunteer poll-watchers, most of whom are stay-at-home moms or elderly, that we have asked the Justice Department to help and even attend True the Vote poll watcher trainings. Having poll watchers is not only the law, it is crucial in a free society that all candidates and parties can see and make sure the election was held with integrity. Being attacked for fulfilling that civic role is inexcusable.”
King Street Patriots leader, Catherine Engelbrecht, backed up Saenz’s statement when she took the mike and commented, “Many of the poll watchers being attacked are soccer moms and senior citizens, who volunteer their time because they love their country and want to ensure a free and fair election. The True the Vote poll watcher trainings are for anyone who wants to get involved. Attacks on silent poll watchers are not only against the law but shameful.”
BABE HUGGETT: Taking their civic duty as concerned American citizens seriously, the King Street Patriots organization with their True the Vote poll watchers, are under growing local, regional and national assault by Democratic and leftist-liberal smear machines for daring to expose massive voter fraud especially within the minority communities in Harris County, TX.
The biggest attack came directly from the Obama Administration’s oxymoronic Department of Justice in response to a letter sent by the King Street Patriots alerting the department of what they had found. Instead of thanking the group for exposing how the Democratic party is blatantly using black communities centered around Houston as tools to commit voter fraud, the DOJ is suing the King Street Patriots for “voter intimidation” based solely on trumped-up accusations coming from outraged democratic operatives complaining that they find the mere presence of the poll watchers, many of whom are elderly women, “threatening”.
The accusations are specious but have now provided a jumping off point for left leaning news and opinion outlets to attack the King Street Patriots organization as a racist group with suspect funding. The local ABC affiliate, Channel 13, even speculated on their evening news broadcast that the King Street Patriots would soon be facing jail time. Democratic congresswoman, Sheila Jackson Lee, whose 18th congressional district polling places are not used to actual scrutiny, demanded and got the King Street Patriot’s financial records in order to somehow expose the locally-funded-through-private-citizen donation group as being ban rolled by some imagined billionaire with an agenda much like leftist organizations themselves are funded by the likes of a George Soros , Ted Turner, or Stephen Rockefeller.
Catherine Engelbrecht, head of the King Street Patriots, said, “I was just in stunned disbelief that a station I grew up watching would take a completely fallacious statement as damaging as “going to jail” is and broadcast it with abandon. Where’s the accountability?” Read more…
Now, I am not going to go into the history, Victorian politics or plot of the The Pirates of Penzance or the artistic tensions and musical rivalries between Gilbert & Sullivan here. That is for the curious to find out for themselves. So my apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan but what I am going to do is, in my own way, bring their satiric observation of Peter Principle leaders up-to-date: Read more…
BABE HUGGETT: For the malleable young, nothing beats having a role model to look up to and emulate. That’s why sports figures, rock musicians and celebrities need to be so circumspect in their lives. They’re not, of course, because it’s in their commercial interest to keep the current toxic popular culture churning away for their risk adverse, corporate masters. Scandals help to hide the lack of talent amongst the unoriginal, cookie-cutter star set while generating you-can’t-pay-for-this-type-of-publicity headlines sure to push off real news in favor of the mental cotton candy floss so beloved by commercial interests.
However, this type of decadent, inartistic slovenliness gets repetitiously boring after a while and a teen’s radar is exquisitely tuned to winnowing out the bogus from the merely banal. So what’s a poor teen looking for someone to pattern themselves after supposed to do? Our past heroes and heroines are either excoriated for not being politically correct, if they are even mentioned at all, or are considered so out-of-date as to be irrelevant. In fact, what with all this eco-greenie Gaia worship going on in our public schools, humans themselves are not only not held up as something worth while but actively despised for their respective and collective carbon footprints. Even that current socialist secular living saint, President Obama, is proving to have feet of clay for them because BP oil is still gushing into the Gulf of Mexico soiling US beaches, destroying Louisiana tide water ecosystems and killing untold numbers of marine and animal life all while he goes on yet another vacation and/or tees off at the nearest golf course.

BABE HUGGETT: As we celebrate Easter 2010, does anyone ever stop to wonder why the combined forces of secular atheism, socialism and Islam roar and screech in their assault against Christianity? If you are a Christian conservative, you’ll be thinking at this point, “It’s because the risen Christ brought us the message of Salvation and our nation is still nominally Christian. Our freedoms are individual based and God given with therefore unalienable rights.”
If you’re a liberal/socialist, you’ll be sneering, “Easter? That’s just a pagan holiday commandeered by Rome! Look at the goddess Ēostre’s symbols of rabbits and eggs! Hey! Who ate the ears off my chocolate bunny?”
If you’re an atheist, you’re grumbling about there, “…being no God, hence no meaning to Jesus – if he ever existed in the first place – and why the heck isn’t this a four day weekend like Winter Festival?”
If you’re a Muslim, well, you’re smirking along the lines of, “I can’t wait for Mohammed’s slave, Isa, to come back and destroy the Christians!”
In the spirit of religious diversity, I suppose it’s expected of me to go on to the other great religions and what their followers think of Easter but time, space and their lack of tyrannical political drive precludes me from saying anything other than while they think their religions are the true ones, everybody eats marshmallow peeps this time of year so why not have some fun?
