Ohio Poll Shows 53% of Citizens Support Trump’s Threat to Shutdown “non-essential” Government over Border Wall

Akron, OH:  Today, the Ohio TEA Party organization, the We the People Convention, released the results of it’s Ohio state poll which was conducted on Tuesday, December 11, 2018. The poll surveyed 410 Ohioans to determine the position of Ohio citizens toward the importance of securing our US borders, including building of a border wall, and their degree of support for President Trump’s pledge to “shutdown” non-essential parts of the Federal Government if Congress fails to provide adequate funding for the border wall.

The We the People Convention poll showed that 52.91% of Ohioans support the President’s threat to shutdown “non-essential” government if Congress does not fund the border wall in the budget. While 42.78% of those polled do not support a shutdown and 4.31% are undecided. Republicans support the President by 84.52%, while Democrats oppose the President on the shutdown by 78.57%. The survey also found that 68.54% of Ohioans feel that securing the US border was “Very Important” or "Important", while 31.46% felt that it was “Not Essential” or even “Necessary” for the border to be secured.

Tom Zawistowski, President of the We the People Convention said, “Our poll shows that support for President Trump threatening to shutdown “non-essential” parts of the government from his base is off the charts at 84.52%, which makes sense since those are the people who elected him largely on that issue. Our organization certainly supports the President’s stand because it just makes common sense. The cost to build a wall is a one time cost of $25 billion, the cost to take care of the estimated 30 million illegals already in the US is $130 billion every year! Interestingly in our poll, 58.57% of Democrats were not aware of these facts and they also were the most opposed to funding border security.”

Zawistowski concluded by saying, “Despite Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’s false claims yesterday that “experts say that walls don’t work”, the fact is that the wall Israel built cut illegal immigration by 99%. With 95% of the Heroin and Fentenyl, that killed a record 70,000 Americans last year alone, coming across the Mexican border, anyone who opposes funding the border wall can’t do math and doesn’t care about America’s children or its middle class. It’s real simple, if their is no funding for the border wall, then there is no funding for the government! Congress must do what they promised, nothing else is acceptable.”


Wow! Trump, Pelosi and Schumer get into a fight on live TV about funding for the Border Wall!

Call the White House Switchboard NOW at 202-456-1414 and ask them to note that you support President Trump's decision to shut down the government if there is no wall funding. Then tell them that not only should he shut down the federal government, EVERY "non-essential" government employee that is identified in the shut down should have their job eliminated immediately!!!

Watch the video and listen to the idiotic arguments by Pelosi and Schumer claiming that imaginary "experts" say walls don't work. It's real simple - NO WALL FUNDING, no Government funding. When they try to scare you about how "cruel" it will be to have a shut down at Christmas time LAUGH IN THEIR FACE and expose them for the frauds that they are! Like we don't know that nothing important gets shut down and the laid off employees get a PAID VACATION and all there wages back at the end of the shutdown. You can tell by how much Pelosi and Schumer keep saying they don't want a government shutdown that they will cave if the President holds firm. He will hold firm if he has our support! Call the White House Switchboard NOW!

BTW, I have confirmation that our ad was seen in the White House. Don't know for sure if the President saw it or not, but his staff definitely did. I also know lots of "Republican" Congressmen saw it. Our timing could not have been better! Thanks to all of you who shared it and donated to help pay for the ad.

For Liberty,

Tom Zawistowski

If you did not see it Sunday Night on LIfe, Liberty and Levin, I implore you watch this video of Heather MacDonald where she explains EXACTLY what is wrong with our society, who is behind it and what has to be done about it. Then show this to everyone you know, especially young people you know and especially parents. We ALL must start fighting back by rejecting the culture of victimization created by gender and racial identity politics by exercising your FREE SPEECH and calling it what it is - a destructive ideology of hate intended to bring down not only the US but all of Western Civilization.

Akron, OH:  Today, the Ohio TEA Party organization the We the People Convention, released the results of it’s Ohio state poll which was conducted on August 19, 2018. The poll surveyed a random sample of 614 Ohio Republicans to determine the level of support for Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan’s bid to become the next Speaker of the US House of Representatives. 

The We the People Convention poll showed that 77.36% of Ohio Republicans believe that Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan should be elected as the next Speaker of the US House of Representatives by members of Congress. Congressman Steve Scalise from Louisiana received 14.98% of the vote and Congressmen Kevin McCarthy received 7.65% of the vote. More than 80% of Ohio Republican voters felt that Jordan would be the most supportive of President Trumps agenda.

The survey also found that 79.82% of Republican voters felt that the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee should endorse Jim Jordan for Speaker of the House at their State Central Committee meeting on September 7, 2018.  A total of 73.19% of Republican voters felt the Ohio’s nine incumbent Republican Congressmen and six Republican candidates for Congress should also endorse Jim Jordan for Speaker out of loyalty to a fellow Ohioan and fellow member of Congress. A majority of 55.29% of Republican Voters said that it would affect their vote for members of Congress if they endorsed Jim Jordan before election day.

Tom Zawistowski, President of the We the People Convention said, “As President Trump saw first hand at the rally in Lewis Center, OH a few weeks back, and as this statewide polls shows, Jim Jordan is clearly the overwhelming choice of Ohio Republicans to be the next Speaker of the US House of Representatives. I would also point out that the TEA Party Patriots survey last week showed that 98.4% of TEA Party activist around the nation support Jordan for Speaker. The reasons are clear, we trust Jim Jordan as Speaker to restore regular order and allow the House to serve the people instead of special interests. We trust Jim Jordan to do what those we elect to office promised us they would do. We know that Jim Jordan will support the agenda the people elected President Trump to implement instead of obstructing the President every step of the way as has been the case under the current Speaker of the House.  We are going to do everything in our power to encourage all Republican members of Congress to prove that they actually do support President Trump by electing a House Speaker who will work with the President every step of the way to Make America Great again.”




For Immediate Release: Saturday, June 7, 2018



Akron, OH: Tom Zawistowski, President of the Ohio TEA Party affiliated We the People Convention, today defended Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan against those accusing him of not acting to stop purported sexual abuse by a homosexual doctor named Richard Strauss at Ohio State University from 1978 to 1998. Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State from 1986-1994 and five former athletes have gone on the record saying that Jordan knew about the sexual abuse 32 years ago and did not report it or stop it. Congressman Jordan has vehemently denied the allegations made against him saying that “he was never told about any sexual abuse” during his time at Ohio State and that “he would have taken action had he known about any abuse by Strauss.”  Jordan’s position is backed up by a statement from Head Wrestling Coach at that time, Russ Hellickson, who said this week, “At no time while Jim Jordan was a coach with me at Ohio State did either of us ignore abuse of our wrestlers.” The Ohio State University opened up an investigation into Strauss’s activities this April when they first came to light and hired law firm Perkins Coie which has reportedly interviewed over 150 people so far about these allegations against Strauss.


Zawistowski said, “First of all, I have known Jim Jordan for many years and I agree with President Trump’s statement on Thursday that Jim Jordan is one of most outstanding people I have met and I don’t believe these allegations at all. Second, in the nine years we have been involved in the TEA Party Movement, we have learned that there are no coincidences in politics. As soon as the NBC hit piece came out, we saw it for what it was. This is a story about greed, opportunism and useful idiots. The two main athletes accusing Jordan of knowing about the sexual abuse 32 years ago and not stopping it are both in serious financial and legal trouble, and one has a clear vendetta against OSU. They were both well aware of the $500 million financial payout being made by Michigan State to 332 female athletes who were sexually assaulted by the athletic department doctor and they saw an opportunity to get a piece of the action. Their motivation for specifically implicating Jordan, who is clearly a minor player in the full scope of this investigation, by lying about his role, is to make the story national so their potential payout will be larger. The investigation into these allegations has been going on since April of this year, but it is hardly a coincidence that the allegations against Jim Jordan ended up on the front page of NBC News just five days after Jim Jordan called out Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for illegally withholding evidence from Congress in a televised public hearing on June 28th. These athletes became the useful idiots for a smear campaign that is designed to take out someone who is threatening those in our government who have committed crimes and are worried about going to prison.” 


Zawistowski continued, “It is a fact that Perkins Coie, the law firm Ohio State hired to investigate the allegations, is also the firm that funneled Hillary Clinton campaign funds to Christopher Steele who wrote the “unverified” fake Trump dossier and paid Fusion GPS to pedal the fake document to the DOJ, FBI and CIA as legitimate intel in order to smear candidate Trump and then undermine President Trump. This illegal activity is what Jim Jordan and others in Congress are exposing with their investigations. So it is not a coincidence that five days after Jordan attacks Rosenstein for covering up this illegal activity that this hit piece comes out. It was also not a coincidence that Perkins Coi tried to legitimize the accusations against Jordan by lying about contacting Jordan and suggesting he refused a request to be interviewed. Now we see the same pattern we have seen by the left wing “media” over and over, accusation with no evidence repeated again and again trying to make people believe the lie. Well, I can tell you flat out, no one in the Ohio TEA Party movement believes this nonsense and I will bet you that Jim Jordan hasn’t lost many votes in his Congressional District because we know this man, and we know his character, and we know this is all not true.”


Zawistowski concluded by saying, “So let’s get this straight. Thirty two years ago, Jim Jordan is an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State, and a homosexual doctor who works for the athletic department has been purportedly molesting hundreds of male athletes on up to 14 different athletic teams, for eight years before Jordan arrived on campus and then for another four year after he left, and the entire focus on this investigation is on Jim Jordan? These are not children, these are Division I male college athletes who would have no problem physically stopping Dr. Strauss if they did not like what he was doing. Are we to believe that, even though they were purportedly traumatized by these actions by Dr. Strauss, that all they did is causally mention it or joke about it in locker room talk with an assistant coach? The five athletes who are accusing Congressman Jordan admit, and specifically say in one case, that “he was too embarrassed to report the abuse directly to Jordan.” They claim, though they admit that they did not tell Jordan directly, that it was “commonly known” but have no proof other than hearsay. Now if I was being molested by someone, and I reported it to an assistant coach and they did nothing, I sure would have then reported it to the Head Coach or the Athletic Director because I would know that they have the power to do something about it - but there is no evidence of that either. Then, where were their parents? Are we supposed to believe that none of those athletes would tell their parents and that the parents would not have taken action to stop their son from being molested? If they were so injured by Dr. Strauss, then why did they not speak out when Dr. Strauss committed suicide in 2005?  Why didn’t they speak up when the Jerry Sandusky case was going on at Penn State that involved the same type of activity? This just does not add up. At least at Penn State and Michigan State the perpetrator was still molesting people and needed to be stopped. That was a good reason to speak up. At OSU Strauss is long dead, so the reason to bring this up now can only be to cash in. Then the political opportunists saw their own opportunity to “cash in” as well by smearing Jim Jordan and we are just not going to buy the lie. We stand by Jim Jordan and look forward to his re-election and to him continuing to fight for equal justice under the law for all of us in the months and years ahead.”

When you celebrate Independence Day today, know what you are celebrating. It is NOT just winning our independence from England. It is the literal miracle of our implementing the most successful form of government ever created by man. Not just government created by the people, and run by the people, for the people, but the commitment to the Individual over the State with the Freedom and Liberty necessary to unleashed capitalism and change the world for the better!

Consider this, for over 200,000 years, there was virtual no advance in the human condition. ALL humans on earth lived in squalor. Living on between $1-3 per day in today’s dollars. For 200,000 YEARS! ALL HUMANS. The Greeks, the Egyptians, the Chinese, the Romans, the French and English - all lived barely above subsistence levels because of their form of government. Then, with our writing down the mighty words in our Declaration of Independence, and our US Constitution, and our Bill of Rights for all the world to see and share - everything changed!

At the time of the founding of America, 94.4% of the world’s population lived on less than $2 per day, by 2006 only 5% of the world’s population is living on less than $2 per day. In just 242 years of American Exceptionalism billions of people have been pulled out of poverty because of the unrivaled success of capitalism combined with Individual Freedom and Liberty and limited government which originated in the American experiment that continues today. Now THAT is worth celebrating by EVERYONE!

Happy Independence Day Indeed!

Spread the Word Today of the Miracle that IS America!

Supreme Court Janus Ruling Good for Workers and America

Mogadore, OH:  Tom Zawistowski, Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, celebrated today's 5-4 Supreme Court Ruling in the Janus vs AFSCME decision concerning a workers right not to be in a public sector union and not to be forced to pay union fees. Zawistowski said "Today's Supreme Court 5-4 decision effectively ends forced unionization by public sector unions nationwide. Something that the TEA Party has fought for since its beginning because this practice violates the constitutional rights of all union workers. Do not mistake our position. We are NOT against unions. In fact we in the TEA Party think we need MORE union representation so workers can use collective bargaining to get better wages. Middle class wages have been stagnant for 25 years until Trump came into office. What we are against is CORRUPT unions, who use the force of law to force people to join and pay due instead of offering services and benefits that make workers WANT to join the union. These corrupt unions then use these ill-gotten fees to fund politicians with anti-American positions against the will of at least half of their own union membership."

Zawistowski continued, "In Ohio 94% of Union Workers have NEVER even had a chance to vote on what Union represents them. They are prisoners of a corrupt system that funds the radical communist Left in our nation. In Indiana, when Right to Work was passed, Union membership went UP not Down because the unions actually had to listen to the will of their union members and provide valuable services. This ruling will help make that happen for more union workers and that is a good thing.It is estimated that this decision will cost public sector unions nationwide nearly $3 billion in annual fees that they currently use to elect radical Democrats and corrupt Republicans. This ruling will change the political landscape in places like New York, NJ, and California where union money assured hard left Democrat wins. It is important to note, that Neil Gorsuch was the deciding vote because TEA Party Members and common sense Americans made the right decision in the 2016 Presidential Election and elected Donald Trump!"
