Today we show our appreciation to our living veterans for the sacrifices they and their families have made, and are making, to defend our nation and to defend our sacred Constitution and our way of life. We are grateful that they are finally getting the recognition they deserve, and the medical treatment they deserve, from a grateful nation.
In 2016 for the first time, the Gulf War veterans became the largest veterans group, though the total number of veterans is expected to fall from 20 Million to 13 Million over the next 20 years. Ohio has the sixth most veterans of all 50 states with 817,840 as of 2015. While nationally only 7.88% of citizens are vets in Ohio 9% of our adult population are vets.
Be sure to reach out to all the veterans you know today and thank them for protecting your rights and your way of life. Every citizen owes our veterans a debt of gratitude.

"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people, it is wholly inadequate for the government of any other."

In this extremely important video Attorney General Bill Barr explains the dire threat to ALL AMERICANS caused by the intentional attacks on people of faith and their religious values, and to the very existence of our nation, from the policies of the secular left. Policies which have been promoted and implemented by the elected officials whom many people of faith have consistently voted for and intend to vote for going forward.

All American's, especially Agnostics, Atheists, Jews, Gays, and people who hold secular values, need to hear and understand the historical truths and legal facts that AG Barr presents so clearly in this speech. Then we all must take the time to carefully think about what we actually know as truth, what we really believe, and what each of us are intentionally doing to ourselves, to our children and families, and to our nation, with our votes going forward.

After viewing this video their can be no ambiguity, each of us will know exactly what we are doing when we cast our votes - and we will  be personally responsible for the outcomes those votes create for us, for our fellow citizens, and for the world.

Mogadore, OH - The Portage County TEA Party, and other local Liberty Groups, will hold a "Demand Equal Justice" Sign-Wave in Cuyahoga Falls, OH this Saturday, October 12, 2019 from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM. The Sign-Wave will be held on the pedestrian bridge behind Roberts Middle School which is located at 3333 Charles Street, Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44221. Like minded citizens are invited to join the peaceful protest.
Tom Zawistowski, the Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, said "As citizens we are concerned by the destruction of our legal system taking place most visibly at the Federal Level. Terrible crimes have been committed by members or our government, members of our law enforcement agencies, and even elected officials - all of whom are supposed to be upholding the rule of law. Without Equal Justice Under the Law we are not a nation at all because then We the People would be ruled by men and not by law. That is why we DEMAND that the laws be enforced equally and that this perverse culture in Washington of people being denied due process and treated as if they are guilty of charges until proven innocent be completely rejected by our government, our courts, and our law enforcement agencies. " 
Zawistowski continued, "We are holding this Sign-Wave on Saturday, October 12, 2019 to send a message to President Trump and to Attorney General Barr, and our fellow citizens, that We the People expect that charges be filed against everyone who has committed crimes. No one is above the law - especially law enforcement, members of the courts, government employees and elected officials and their staff's. The evidence is clear that that people tried to change the outcome of the 2016 election, colluded with multiple foreign governments, and then attempted to stage a Coup upon the President we lawfully elected. It is time to clean house at the DOJ/FBI/CIA! WE DEMAND JUSTICE BE SERVED!"
Zawistowski concluded, "We ask like minded Americans to join us on the Pedestrian Bridge behind Roberts Middle School in Cuyahoga Falls, OH and to bring hand made signs and flags with them for this peaceful protest. We will continue to protest in the days and weeks ahead until justice is done and rule of law is re-established in our nation."

The Portage County TEA Party, and Patriots from TEA Party and Liberty Groups from several surrounding counties, met at the FBI Building in Cleveland to DEMAND Equal Justice Under the LAW for All on Thursday, October 3, 2019. Cleveland TV Channel 19 did two live remote broadcast from the protest as well this video we posted on our Facebook page. We urge all Patriots to organize sign waves and take action to support President Trump and AG Bill Barr's investigation into this coup attempt! The Portage County TEA Party is currently planning a sign-wave on the bridge over State Route 8 in Cuyahoga Falls in the next week or so.

Thank you to all who attended! We had a good time and particularly enjoyed our little confrontation with the General Manager of WKYC TV - which was just 200 feet from where we protested and did not cover the event like Channel 19 TV did. It felt good to tell the "fake news" right to their face that they are liars!



The Portage County TEA Party will hold a "Demand Equal Justice" Protest outside the FBI office at 1501 Lakeside Ave. East in Cleveland, OH this Thursday, October 3, 2019 from 11:30 AM until 1:30 PM.  Like minded citizens are invited to join the peaceful protest.

Tom Zawistowski, the Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, said "It is time that We the People stand up to the corruption in our law enforcement community, our judicial system, our federal government, our political parties and the media. No one is above the law and we demand that justice be enforced equally. What the regressive, Leftist, Democratic/Socialist in Congress, in our government, and in our media are doing is nothing less than a coup attempt on this President that is designed to take away the votes of 62 million Americans and reverse the results of a fair election."

Zawistowski continued, "We demand that  US Attorney General Bill Barr use all the resources at his disposal to bring charges against ALL of those who have committed crimes regardless of their position in society or in government. Our Constitution gives us a nation ruled by law and not men.  It is now clear that for several decades at least we have been a nation ruled by men who break our laws with impunity to rule over us. We will not stand for this double standard any longer."

Zawistowski concluded, "We ask like minded Americans to join us outside the FBI Office in Cleveland and to bring hand made signs and flags with them for this peaceful protest. We will continue to protest in the days and weeks ahead until justice is done and rule of law is re-established in our nation."

Suggested Sign Ideas:

It is critical that as a movement and as individuals that we keep our focus on what is really important to our future. This nonsense about Impeaching Trump is just that - Nonsense. Ignore it. It is nothing but a distraction.
The real threat to our nation and to you and I individually is the lack of equal justice under the law. If we cannot push Attorney General Barr and President Trump to charge and convict these criminals like Joe Biden and Andrew McCabe and all the other, our nation is finished and their is no way we can win the elections next year!
This is a line we cannot cross. We can not become 2nd class citizens, we must DEMAND equal justice be applied to ALL Americans, including politicians, government employees, members of the media, and the ruling class!
I do not believe that Barr will act without public pressure, so let’s start putting on the pressure! Focus on the real threats and ignore the rest.
DEMAND Equal Justice NOW:
1)  Call/Write to US Attorney General William Barr  and DEMAND that those in the DOJ/FBI/CIA/NSA/State Dept/White House and other federal agencies, who broke the law, be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! Barr will not have the courage to act without public pressure.
2) Make Plans NOW to Protest in your Community or at the nearest  FBI office or DOJ Office ( Northern Ohio  -  Southern Ohio ) if charges are not filed against the perpetrators of the Trump Coup Attempt.
3) Write Letters to the Editor and call-in to local talk radio shows explaining that without equal justice for all the United States cannot exist. Demand that law enforcement at all levels start doing their jobs and start treating all citizens equally.

On Wednesday night, members of the Portage County TEA Party marked the 911 Anniversary with a special prayer by Larry Stewart and by showing a video compilation of news video from that day 18 years ago which included the attacks in New York City as well as on the Pentagon and the heroic effort by citizens to stop the Islamic terrorist hijackers in Somerset, PA.

In the second half of the meeting, attendees were the first to see the Premier of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) produced documentary film "Targeting U.S." which documents the fight by TEA Party groups against the illegal targeting by the Obama Administration's Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Since the Portage County TEA Party was part of the  successful ACLJ lawsuit against the US Government and the IRS, our group was given the honor of being one of the first in the nation to view the film.

After the movie, Tom Zawistowski, Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, who appeared in the movie multiple times to help tell the story, said that the reason this movie is important was because it shows that regular American's can fight our government, when it does wrong, and win that fight. He noted that today, we face a severe threat to the very survival of our Republic because of the lawlessness in our FBI, DOJ, NSA, CIA, DIA and Federal Government in general and that we must prepare to take on the Federal Government AGAIN to DEMAND Equal Justice Under the Law.

Zawistowski noted that without equal justice for ALL that we are not a Nation at ALL. Pointing out that what made the United States of America unique at its founding was the fact that we are a nation ruled by law and not men. Unfortunately, the evidence strongly demonstrates that in the past 50 years we have been ruled by men who have ignored and broken our laws. Zawistowski said, if the criminals who tried to rig the 2016 election, and attempted a coup attempt against President Donald Trump after his election, are not prosecuted then they will be free to continue to break the law and will steal the 2020 election.

Zawistowski concluded the meeting by telling members that he believes that Attorney General William Barr will not be able to prosecute those who are clearly guilty without public pressure to do so. He asked PCTEA Members to prepare to protest outside the FBI Building in Downtown Cleveland if AG Barr does not start to bring criminal charges outlined in the book "Ball of Collusion" - which Zawistowski called an indictment by former Federal Prosecutor Andrew McCarthy.

Zawistowski, said that he would be working with the ACLJ to make the documentary "Targeting U.S." available for everyone to see and would let members know in the coming days how they can get DVD's or where they can watch the film.

The Left Can’t Stop Lying About The Tea Party

There's no evidence that the Tea Party’s popularity was propelled by racism. 


By David Harsanyi - AUGUST 28, 2019

“In the late summer of 2009, as the recession-ravaged economy bled half a million jobs a month, the country seemed to lose its mind,” The New York Times says, kicking off its tenth anniversary retrospective of the Tea Party movement. As you can imagine, the rest of the article continues in this vein, portraying conservatives who organized against Obamacare as a bunch of vulgar radicals.

Yet even this revisionism wasn’t enough for most contemporary leftists, who see everything through the prism of race.

“A fundamental flaw in this analysis is there is no mention of race and how much racism drove the Tea Party movement,” ABC’s Matthew Dowd claimed. “You can’t talk about the rage politics and leave out race.”

“This @jwpetersNYT retrospective on the Tea Party’s ‘summer of rage’ ten years ago makes not a single, solitary reference to race or racism,” Rolling Stone’s Jamil Smith said. “Nor does it acknowledge the reality that a good deal of it involved opposing President Obama because he was black.”

“How do you write a 10 years later piece on the Tea Party and not mention – not once, not even in passing – the fact that it was essentially a hysterical grassroots tantrum about the fact that a black guy was president?” asked non-biased Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery, calling it journalistic “malpractice.”

Well, you get the idea.

In the first draft of this piece, I joked that The New York Times might add a line about Tea Party “racism” before the day was over to placate the Twitter mob. They did it before I could even publish. But it doesn’t change the fact that there’s no evidence that a “good deal”—or any substantial deal, for that matter—of the Tea Party’s popularity was propelled by racism.

The wealthy white leader of Congress at the time was just as unpopular among Tea Partiers as the black president. And, as we’ve seen, if Hillary Clinton had won the 2008 election, she would have generated no less anger among conservatives.

It was Barack Obama’s leftist rhetoric and unprecedented unilateralism—he had, after all, promised “fundamental change”—that ignited what amounts to a renewed Reaganism; a fusing of idealistic constitutionalism and economic libertarianism. (These days, there’s an excellent chance that progs see both those -isms as inherently racist, as well.)

Tea Party protesters not only felt like they were under assault from Democrats but that they had been abandoned by the GOP establishment. That is why so many primaried white Republicans. If you really wanted to hear them “rage,” you could always bring up the former Caucasian and Republican president, George W. Bush, who had “abandoned free market principles to save the free market system.”

As with any spontaneous political movement, some bad actors glommed onto protests. The New York Times article, for instance, informs us that “one demonstrator at a rally in Maryland hanged a member of Congress in effigy” and that a “popular bumper stickerwas ‘Honk if I’m Paying Your Mortgage’” – as if we’re supposed to be offended by the latter.

Most accusations of Tea Party racism are based on John Lewis’s accusation—dutifully repeated by most of the media without any skepticism—that someone had called him ugly names and spit on him when he and Nancy Pelosi strolled through protesters in front of the Capitol. Although there were cameras everywhere that historic day, no one was ever able to find any evidence to back up his claim.

None of this stopped Frank Rich, then a New York Times columnist, from boring into the collective soul of the movement, accusing it of engaging in “small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht.” Joe Biden reportedly accused them of acting “like terrorists.” Tom Friedman referred to them as the “Hezbollah faction” of the GOP. It was, as one Democratic Party memo explained, “not really all about average citizens,” but an astroturf movement paid for by corporate lobbyists and populated by “neo-Nazis, militias, secessionists and racists.”

All of this rhetoric sounds very familiar.

Left-wing protesters, no matter how puerile, hateful, or bigoted, are typically depicted as righteous agents of change. Conservatives and libertarians, on the other hand, “rage.” The “summer of rage” typically refers to the riots that swept a number of American cities in 1967. The Tea Party protests never turned violent. There were no riots. No broken Starbucks windows. It was the most peaceful “rage” you’re ever going to see.

I reported on the first of numerous Tea Party protests on April 16, 2010. What I saw were some silly people, and many others who were idealistic neophytes peacefully organizing around founding principles. Most had very specific policy goals in mind. None of them were about race. Most of them supported free markets. Many of them were still quite mainstream.

A CBS/New York Times poll at time found that the average Tea Party activist was more educated than the average American, and their concerns mirrored the mainstream. Although a majority were more socially conservative than the average voter—particularly on abortion—8 in 10 of them wanted their burgeoning movement to focus on economic issues rather than social ones.

Hardly the anarchists depicted in the media, the poll found that a majority of Tea Partiers wanted to reduce the size of government rather than focus on cutting budget deficits or even lowering taxes. A majority, in fact, believed that Social Security and Medicare were worthy taxpayer burdens. Not even clamping down on illegal immigration, often the impetus for charges of racism these days, was a big topic among these activists.

The Tea Party had three main grievances: Obamacare, government spending, and “a feeling that their opinions are not represented in Washington.” The protests were fueled by Democrats’ unprecedented action on a health care policy. A decade later, the Tea Party’s suspicion that the health-care law was merely an incremental way to move towards more socialistic policies turned out to be correct, as most of the Democratic Party presidential field can attest.

The Tea Party, whether some of their champions later turned out to be hypocrites or not, didn’t want to change the Republican Party as much as they wanted to force conservative politicians to keep their promises. The movement initially backed a number of terrible candidates, but it learned.

In the end, the Tea Party successfully re-energized Republicans, who went on to win two wave elections and stifle Obama’s presidency for six years.  Whether the movement was a long-term failure, as the Times argues, is a debatable contention.

One things is true, though: the majority of Tea Partiers were white. You know what that means, right? And, as those of us who covered the Obama administration remember, no matter how historically detailed or ideologically anchored your position might be, the very act of opposing a black president was going to be depicted as act of bigotry.

This cheap and destructive rhetoric now dominates virtually every contemporary debate, most of which have absolutely nothing, even tangentially, to do with race. It’s a kind of rhetoric, in fact, that now retroactively dominates our debates, as well.

The We the People Convention wants to THANK Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, and you should as well, for standing up for the 1964 Civil Rights Law and calling out the charade that the left has been conducting in our schools, our colleges, in large corporations, and in Government. Here's a memo, LGBTQ - XYZLMNOP, whatever, are NOT a legal protected class and never have been and never should be!
The Obama Administration "acted" as if they were a protected class and the left tries to force everyone to give them "special" rights and privileges but no federal law has ever been passed granting them protected status. It is time to have the Supreme Court make that clear so that you can tell you school district and you place of business, that homosexuals are not "special" and they should be treated just like everyone else! 

But see, they don't want to be treated like everyone else, they don't want equal rights, they want superior rights to you and other Americans. They want to get the job even if they are not best qualified, they want to get the promotion because of their fake "protected class status" even if they aren't the best qualified, they want to threaten to sue your business for discrimination when you need to fire them because they can't or won't do the job, they want to get admitted to college before your child because of their fake "protected class status"! They in fact want to discriminate against YOU and everyone else - not be treated equally!

There is much more real discrimination today against straight, white, christian, males than against any other group - especially LGBTQ- XYZLMNOP, whatever, when AT LEAST 90% of their "claims" of discrimination have been hoaxes. America was built on the promise of EQUAL RIGHTS FOR EVERYONE, it is time for the law to again make that clear and we trust the suit the AG Yost has joined will have the effect of re-establishing this fundamental American legal principle.

Yost Argues Federal Civil Rights Laws
Don't Protect LGBTQ Workers

Late on Friday, Republican Attorney General Dave Yost announced he'd join a U. S. Supreme Court case on whether federal civil rights laws protect LGBTQ employees from workplace discrimination - and that Ohio would be siding with the states that think they do not.
That news came as a shock to some activists, but was well received by others. Sen. Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood) is disappointed - to say the least."Our attorney general has entered into weighing in and support of a push to discriminate against a group of people. That is appalling," Antonio said.

For years, Antonio has tried to pass what she's called the Ohio Fairness Act - a bill to add sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes under the state's anti-discrimination law related to employment, housing, and public accommodations. She notes one of Mike DeWine's first actions as governor was to sign an executive order protecting LGBTQ state workers.

So Yost's decision to file a friend of the court brief in this lawsuit has left her puzzled, and she's written him a letter about that.  "Why in the world would we put effort into taking away rights from people than working to open the circle and include everyone?" Antonio said.

But conservatives are pleased with the decision to join the lawsuit. Aaron Baer with Citizens for Community Values said the federal civil rights law at issue - Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 - includes five protected classes that are clearly defined: sex, race, color, religion and national origin.

"Attorney General Dave Yost is standing up for what the law is, not what some political activists want it to be. When Title VII was passed, it's very clear that sex means male or female. And what you have today is you have a handful of activists trying to redefine words that Congress passed to achieve their political victories," Baer said.

In this case, Baer also said it appears activists don't believe their own argument, that sexual orientation is protected by that law, "because if they did, they wouldn't be pushing things like HR5, what they call the Equality Act, or Senate Bill 11 in Ohio that they call the Fairness Act, where they're trying to add gender identity and gender expression to the law. They don't really even believe their legal arguments.""And so what you have is Dave Yost standing up for common sense and for what the law actually is instead of what a political agenda wants it to be," Baer said.

Some conservatives extend their concern to so-called "bathroom bills", which allow a person to use the restroom that matches their gender identity. Though that legislation has been proposed in Ohio, it's never been given serious consideration - and indeed, no state has a law like that on their books.

Yost wasn't available for comment, but said in a written statement that the case "is about whether the judiciary gets to write new laws or if that should be left to elected legislators." He adds, "If the law is to be amended, Congress, not the courts, should be the one doing it."

With that in mind, the state's leading LGBTQ rights group says Yost should be speaking up in the opposite way. "It is a backwards look for the state of Ohio to have the attorney general coming out and saying, look, LGBTQ people should not be protected from discrimination in the workplace," said Marshall Troxell, the policy coordinator for Equality Ohio. "Really, we would love for him to come out and say, LGBTQ people should be explicitly protected and urge his colleagues in the legislature to move the Ohio Fairness Act forward."

The Ohio Fairness Act has had three hearings, the last one in May. Antonio says it's the seventh time a bill like this has been introduced in the past 11 years. 29 states, including Ohio, have no laws with this anti-discrimination language.

Ohio is among 15 states - all Republican dominated - joining the Trump administration in arguing that federal civil rights laws don't protect LGBTQ people from workplace discrimination. 21 mostly Democratic states and the District of Columbia have filed briefs opposing that. The case will be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on October 8.
