5th Circuit Orders Engelbrecht & Phillips Jail Release


A Judiciary Actually Upholds Conservative Free Press Rights

John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© November 7, 2022

According to a very small handful of Conservative reporting sites (the most known: The Epoch Times, 100PercentFedUp & The Gateway Pundit) Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips have been ordered released from jail by the 5th Circuit Appellate Court for bogus contempt charges by an idiot Judge that must of have failed 1st Amendment Free Press rules at his Bar Examine.

I say “small handful” because either no one else is reporting this epic news upholding Free Press sourcing or all the search engines are burying the info.

I’m cross posting The Epoch Times and the National File (which I only located on the Presearch Search Engine). Perhaps further updated info will garner a better search engine response – but my lack of trust for Big Tech means I won’t hold my breath.

PS: I was a bit surprised that neither The Epoch Times nor the National File mentioned Konnech CEO Eugene Yu (actually arrested for delivering U.S. Election data to the CCP) in the below cross posts. Especially puzzling because the National File an incriminating Yu article on November 1: “Examining Konnech CEO Eugene Yu’s Ties with BlackRock.”

Two leaders of True the Vote organization will be released from jail after an appeals court overruled a judge’s order that they be locked up.

Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips were ordered released by a panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit late Nov. 6.

“IT IS ORDERED that Petitioners’ opposed motion for release from detention is GRANTED pending further order of this court,” the panel said in the order, which was obtained by The Epoch Times.

The panel consisted of Circuit Judges Catharina Haynes, a George W. Bush appointee; Kurt Engelhardt, a Trump appointee; and Andrew Oldham, a Trump appointee.

Engelbrecht and Phillips were expected to be released on Nov. 7, a spokesman for True the Vote told The Epoch Times via email on Monday morning.

“They will be released when the paperwork is complete, probably sometime this morning,” the spokesman said.

Engelbrecht and Phillips were imprisoned on Oct. 31 after U.S. District Judge Kenneth Hoyt, a Reagan appointee, found them in contempt of court for not revealing the identities of people who allegedly accessed information from Konnech, a Michigan-based election management software company whose founder was recently arrested for allegedly stealing poll worker data and hosting it on servers in China.

The order for confinement was to be in place until the defendants “fully comply” with an order that they reveal certain information, including the identities, Hoyt said.

Engelbrecht and Phillips say they passed on information that was legally obtained from Konnech to the FBI. One of their attorneys named one of the individuals in question, Mike Hasson, during an October hearing. But they have declined to share the name of the second person. Both the individuals are FBI informants, Phillips said during one hearing.

“Those who thought that imprisoning Gregg and I would weaken our resolve have gravely miscalculated. It is stronger than ever,” Engelbrecht said in a statement. “The right to free and fair elections without interference is more important than our own discomforts and even this detention, now reversed by a higher court.”

“We are profoundly grateful for that. We will continue to protect and defend those who do the vital work of election integrity, and we will make sure that their findings become a matter of public record,” she added.

The imprisonment order came after Konnech sued True the Vote and its founders for defamation.

Hoyt entered a temporary restraining order against the defendants, ordering them to return all property and data to Konnech and identify people who were involved in accessing the company’s computers.

In their filing for release from detention, Engelbrecht and Phillips said that Hoyt’s confinement order “represents a clear abuse of discretion and a manifest miscarriage of justice.”

“Petitioners pray that this Court enter an Order releasing them from the district court’s draconian order of detention for refusing to identity a federal confidential informant in open court whose identity in any event has no bearing on the merits of this defamation case hinging on competing accounts of alleged historical events,” they added.

The pair also said that they never possessed or controlled the information in question. Phillips said Engelbrecht does not know the name that he is withholding and that, if the name were revealed, the person’s life would “be jeopardized by border drug and smuggling cartels.”

In its opposition to the petition, Konnech said that the True the Vote founders were trying to “strip the District Court of its contempt power” and that they “have no one but themselves to blame for their confinement” after defying Hoyt’s order.

“Petitioners’ imprisonment is not an emergency especially in this case where the Petitioners are contemnors and recalcitrant witnesses who hold the keys to the jailhouse, and can free themselves immediately upon purging their contempt,” lawyers for the firm said.

Appeals Court Orders True The Vote Leaders to be Released From Jail

True The Vote leaders Gregg Phillips and Catherine Engelbrecht after an appeals court overruled a contempt charge lobbied against the duo by a judge. The judge ordered the election integrity activists to name a confidential source, which they refused to do.

Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips were ordered released by a panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit late Sunday evening. “IT IS ORDERED that Petitioners’ opposed motion for release from detention is GRANTED pending further order of this court,” the panel said in its ruling.

The election watchdogs are expected to be released on Monday, November 7, a spokesman for True The Vote told the Epoch Times in an email. “They will be released when the paperwork is complete, probably sometime this morning,” the spokesman said.

Englebrecht and Phillips were previously taken into custody by U.S. Marshals on October 31. U.S. District Judge Kenneth Hoyt found the pair in contempt of court for refusing to reveal the identities of sources who helped to assess information from Konnech Inc; the election software company whose CEO is being criminally charged for allegedly stealing U.S. election data and storing it in China.

Hoyt ordered them to be imprisoned for contempt until they “fully comply” with the order to disclose the source.

Investigative reporter was in court last week and witnessed the arrest. “It all comes down to this meeting in this Dallas hotel, where they were accessing, supposedly, the Konnech servers,” Webb said. “Catherine Engelbrecht [was] not at this meeting. Only Gregg Phillips [was]. [Phillips] said he’s a confidential informant. [Phillips] said this other gentleman named Mike Hasson, who was there, also is a confidential informant for the FBI,” Webb said in a video statement describing the arrest.

“The defense also said the other third person was also a confidential informant, they just don’t want to give up the name of the third person,” Webb said.

Catherine Engelbrecht released a statement shortly after the appeals court decision was announced.

“Those who thought that imprisoning Gregg and I would weaken our resolve have gravely miscalculated. It is stronger than ever,” she said. “The right to free and fair elections without interference is more important than our own discomforts and even this detention, now reversed by a higher court. We are profoundly grateful for that.”

“We will continue to protect and defend those who do the vital work of election integrity, and we will make sure that their findings become a matter of public record.”

OVERCOME Dem-Marxist Tyranny on November 8


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© November 6, 2022

I’ve had a bit of difficulty deciding on an information path for a blog post today. So, this is what I’m going to do. I’m posting a hodge-podge of articles and videos that might appear unrelated yet has one common theme. THAT THEME is Government/Medical Tyranny under the coup-installed government rulers under Dem-Marxist rulers/oppressors.

1) First up is an hour and 23-minute video interview conducted by Glenn Beck with Whitney Webb. I have no idea who Ms. Webb is. The impression I had from the interview she has been a bit of a Liberal who has awakened to actions of tyranny by America’s current ruling controllers. The interview basis is her book “One Nation Under Blackmail: The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Crime that Gave Rise to Jeffrey Epstein.” Topic hints from memory: Epstein (of course), a criminal government, transhumanism and more. WELL WORTH THE WATCH! (Beck runs a few pay-the-bills ads. I just FF through the ads, but you do as you will.)

2) A 11/2/22 post from The Federalist about some Globalist controllers are beginning to panic a bit about a massive transfer of political power might begin on November 8: “Public Health Elites Who Pushed Anti-Science Policies Deserve Accountability, Not ‘Amnesty’.”

3) The Conservative Treehouse put a roughly 3-minute video of Tucker Carlson highlighting the First Amendment violation of a Free Press for a Leftist Judge incarcerating Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips for REFUSING to reveal their source that led to the indictment of Eugene Yu for delivering Election data to the Chinese Communist Party. Yu (CEO of Konnech) sued for the source-info and mysteriously a Judge wanted to bring Whistleblowers to the light of day. Englebrecht and Phillips REFUSED: “Tucker Carlson Draws Attention to Imprisonment of Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips.”

4) Last is a 11/5/22 message from Tom Zawitowski (for Tom Z) on past Election Tyranny, current Election Tyranny (including a section on a phone message from incarcerated Englebrecht) and some rare Court victories trying to secure present and future Election Integrity. I found the original video on Tom Z’s We The People Convention website, but I’m just posting the Rumble Video: “We the People Convention News & Opinion 11-5-22.”

Journalist Whitney Webb has worked to uncover some of the most dangerous stories of our lifetime, and she joins Glenn to reveal just how eye-opening it’s been. Her new two-volume book, “One Nation Under Blackmail: The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Crime that Gave Rise to Jeffrey Epstein,” examines Epstein’s elaborate network of corruption and power, from Bill Clinton to Ghislaine Maxwell and many more. Her research into transhumanism has given her a terrifying perspective on the World Economic Forum and tech elites, including Elon Musk. And she tells Glenn the dark truth about Biden’s push for electric vehicles that she noticed while living in Chile.

Public Health Elites Who Pushed Anti-Science Policies Deserve Accountability, Not ‘Amnesty’

Fear-mongering virus prophets that prided themselves on public health damaged public trust more than anything else.

Mask Tyranny

By JUSTIN HART

November 2, 2022

The Federalist

The failures of Covid health policies are legion. Absent, curiously, are any serious acknowledgments of the harms caused by these policies from the people who promoted them throughout the pandemic.

Recently, Professor Emily Oster of Brown University, admitted in The Atlantic that interventions like social distancing and outdoor masking “were totally misguided.” She decried the “wildly irresponsible claims” of many in positions of power and admits that school closures have led to “historic declines” in student test scores.

Oster acknowledges the obvious: these policies had serious unintended consequences. Oncologist reports note that nearly 50 percent of cancers went undiagnosed during the federal lockdowns because people were too scared to seek treatment. One study estimated that we may have missed over 200,000 cases of domestic abuse during the spring of 2020. Sharp-eyed teachers and administrators are usually the first ones to uncover these sad incidents, and our kids weren’t in school. Well into 2022, I was asking aloud: “How many bruises on a mom’s face were hidden because schools required masks for drop-offs?”

Did anyone weigh the true costs of shutting down the country and closing schools? What should be our position towards policy-makers who forced these ill-founded interventions on the public? What attitude should we strike with key influencers who knew of these harms but did little to call for changes?

Oster seems to recognize that the other shoe is dropping and which is why she launches a pre-emptive request for forgiveness:

We have to put these fights aside and declare a pandemic amnesty. We can leave out the willful purveyors of actual misinformation while forgiving the hard calls that people had no choice but to make with imperfect knowledge.

The professor was not an uninterested bystander. Oster and her team had collected invaluable data on Covid cases in school settings for nearly a year starting in August 2020. The data also mapped differing interventions by state, county, and district – allowing a real-time lab of comparisons. Our team charted her data and found that students in masked schools had a 21 percent higher case rate than students in schools with no masks. Oster published a study coming to similar conclusions.

Then, she dropped out of the discussion and refused to push her study for peer review and publication.

Numerous influential academics like Emily, under pressure from peers and establishment leaders, caved, stayed silent, and mothballed their data altogether. It’s difficult to separate intimidation from self-censorship – but a blanket amnesty seems premature.

Of course, no apology will be forthcoming from Dr. Anthony Fauci. During numerous media interviews in the last several months, he has refused to acknowledge any mistakes. Apparently, he fears that the slightest mea culpa would be taken “out of context.” Fauci’s only tool was fear and he’s not going to give up his tactic.

Dr. Scott Atlas, a one-time advisor to President Trump’s Covid-19 taskforce, recounts how he confronted Fauci and asked: “So you think people aren’t frightened enough?” Fauci reportedly replied: “Yes, they need to be more afraid.”

Fauci-endorsed lockdowns were ineffective and damaging. Risks from Covid are not uniform for the entire population but directly aligned to your age. The mortality impact on children is almost immeasurable but we burdened them with mandates and school closures. Mask mandates have shown zero impact on quelling the spread of the virus. Denied by Fauci & Co., natural immunity offers strong protection and vaccines (designed for a 2-year-old variant) have proven ineffectual at stopping the current crop of feared COVID variants.

Fauci and his cadre of unelected health officials were on the wrong side of every one of these outcomes. They were made aware of every data point above but their one-size-fits-all policies never changed significantly in the face of the evidence. In their minds, there is only the panic.

Oster’s efforts for the well-being of children were not altogether silent. She repeatedly stated claims for “safe re-openings” which were interpreted into policies of school closures by proxy – the slightest exposure sending children into 10 days of quarantine during the winter of 2021-22 per policy. However, her advocacy for fear-based vaccine pressures was always there. In late December 2021 she tweeted:

Emily Oster Tweet screen capture

It is now widely acknowledged that Covid vaccines do not stop infections or transmission of the disease, which is the only reason for mandating and forcing vaccines on the public. We commend Oster for shying away from the shaming tactics which Fauci extolled and the Biden White House perfected, but, she was wrong again.

Curiously, after the 2009 H1N1 public health debacle, an article was published on the National Institutes of Health website entitled “‘Listen to the People’: Public Deliberation about Social Distancing Measures in a Pandemic.” The article notes the vital need for good and honest communication to the public about measures being taken the protect the citizenry. It states:

Public engagement in ethically laden pandemic planning decisions may be important for transparency, creating public trust, improving compliance with public health orders, and ultimately, contributing to just outcomes.

The current crop of failed fear-mongering virus prophets coupled with the low uptake of boosters is a stark and terrible reminder that the institutions that prided themselves on public health damaged the public trust more than anything else. Your trust should be in the bedrock of our Constitution, not in some self-endowed title of “science.” Public trust in our institutions is sinking and it will require a public trial of our policy decisions to right the ship.

Oster might still find some goodwill for engaging with those of us who got it right – even if she attributes that to a “hefty element of luck” – but she shouldn’t presume that we will forget this any time soon.

Tucker Carlson Draws Attention to Imprisonment of Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips

The Conservative Treehouse

True the Vote founder Catherine Englebrecht and election data security analyst, Gregg Phillips, were previously in contempt of court and placed in jail for failing to outline the participants in a 2020 hotel discussion that revealed the Konnech election data compromise that was transmitted to Chinese networks.  {Go Deep} Konnech CEO Eugene Yu was arrested for exploiting access to U.S. election data, including election worker information, and transferring the files to China.

Eugene Yu and Konnech sued True the Vote and are using the U.S. civil judicial system to find out who told the FBI about the Chinese data harvesting operation. Federal Judge Kenneth Hoyt demanded that Phillips and Englebrecht reveal the names of everyone who was present when the original data files were shown to True the Vote.

Englebrecht and Phillips stated they did not ever possess the data file, do not have it and refused to name all the participants who may have seen it.   Judge Hoyt threw them in jail last Monday until Englebrecht and Phillips give up the names to the court and the Chinese Communist Party.  Tucker Carlson discusses {Direct Rumble Link} – WATCH:
