We the People Convention Endorses
Mike Gibbons for U.S. Senate
Akron, OH: Today, Tom Zawistowski, President of the We the People Convention (WTPC), announced that his organization is endorsing Cleveland businessman Mike Gibbons for U.S. Senate in the Republican Primary Election. The Ohio Republican Primary will be held on Tuesday, May 3rd with Early Voting now available.
In making the announcement, Zawistowski said, “The We the People Convention is proud to endorse Mike Gibbons for US Senate in the Republican Primary Election as we did in 2018. Mike is with us on all the conservative issues. He is Pro-Family, Pro-Life, Pro-Jobs, Pro-Business, Pro-Parents Rights, Pro-Gun, Pro-Free Speech, Pro-Religious Freedom, Pro-Trump, Pro-MAGA and Anti-Illegal Immigration, Anti-CRT, Anti-Big Government, Anti-Government Mandates, Anti-Deficit Spending, and Anti-Socialism. Importantly, In our opinion, Mike Gibbons is the only conservative candidate who has the financial resources necessary to win not only the Primary but the General Election in November. Like Trump, he cannot be bought by special interests which we rarely see in a conservative candidate. That means, like Trump, if elected, his votes in the Senate will not be swayed by special interest because he only answers to we the voters of Ohio. No small thing.”
Zawistowski continued, “When he wasn’t running for anything, Mike Gibbons did not disappear like so many politicians. He stayed with us in 2019 and 2020 and did his part in helping us win Ohio again for President Trump. That tells us a lot about the man and how he feels about our country and our movements efforts to defend individual freedom, liberty and prosperity. Finally, Term limits. Gibbons says he only wants to serve one or two terms. That’s laudable. Lots of politicians say that and then don’t. Mike Gibbons is 66 years old, so he is not going to be in Washington for a long time and yes that is actually important to us. We have no interest in electing any more people to the Senate who will be there for 30 years. Mike Gibbons is conservative, he is competent, he has the demeanor necessary to be an effective Senator, and he will support President Trump and the Make America Great Again agenda.” 
Zawistowski concluded, “Based on these reasons, we are confident that we have endorsed the best conservative candidate who can win in the US Senate race and that is Mike Gibbons. I personally ask all of our members, and all real Republicans and Trump supporters in Ohio, to not only get out and vote for Mike Gibbons, but to put up signs and volunteer to help his campaign.

We the People Convention Endorses
Jim Renacci for Ohio Governor
Akron, OH: Today, Tom Zawistowski, President of the We the People Convention (WTPC) and Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, announced that his organization is endorsing Jim Renacci for Ohio Governor in the Republican Primary Election and Joe Knopp as his Lt. Governor.
Zawistowski said, "I will be voting for Jim Renacci and Joe Knopp personally and I ask all conservative Republican voters in the Primary to vote for them as well. Mike DeWine does not deserve to be re-elected. DeWine illegally delayed our primary election in 2020. DeWine picked winners and losers during the China virus pandemic and ordered thousands of small businesses to close down by declaring that they were "nonessential" while promoting big box stores as "essential". His thuggish running mate, Jon Husted, brazenly came on our TV's and said that he "would shut off your electricity and natural gas" if your business did not comply with his tyrannical commands to close your business immediately. DeWine and Husted grossly mismanaged the Ohio unemployment system that they knew was broken, and promised to fix, but instead their pathetic efforts delayed critical checks from getting to Ohio families for weeks and months in a time of need while they sent millions of dollars to people who were not eligible. He misused "emergency" powers to violate our Constitutional rights. He sided with the teachers unions over the best interests of our children. DeWine sided with big Pharma and the Ohio Hospital Association and restricted our access to prophylactic treatment to protect against Covid and pushed vaccinations and totally ineffective mask rules. No conservative, no real Republican, certainly no one who supports President Trump's MAGA agenda, can vote for Mike DeWine."
Zawistowski continued, "Many people forget that Jim Renacci was the mayor of Wadsworth, Ohio which gives him important executive experience other candidates don't have. Plus, he is a very successful businessman, so he knows how to run large organizations and work with other businesses. Another critical skill for a Governor. Finally he was a U.S. Congressman and so he knows how Washington, DC works, or doesn't. Which also is critical knowledge for anyone who is the governor of a state because so much of the money, too much, comes from Washington, DC to the states - with strings attached. These life experiences make Jim Renacci eminently and uniquely qualified to be Ohio's next Governor and why he is deserving of your vote. We gladly endorse him and Joe Knopp in the upcoming Republican Primary."

WTPC Calls for President to Invoke Limited Martial Law to Hold New Election to Protect Our Vote, in Full Page Washington Times Ad, if Legislators, Courts and Congress Do Not Follow the Constitution
Akron, OH: Today, Tom Zawistowski, President of the TEA Party affiliated We the People Convention (WTPC) and Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, published a full page ad in the Washington Times newspaper demanding that President Trump Invoke limited Martial law in order to allow the U.S. Military to oversee a new free and fair federal election if Legislators, Courts and the Congress do not follow the Constitution.
Zawistowski said, "We wanted to express our concerns to the President, to the legislators, courts and Congress that We the People will NOT cede our exclusive Constitutional right to elect our Representatives to judges, lawyers, courts, Governors, Secretary’s of State, Congress, corrupt election officials and local politicians, the corrupt media - or Leftist threats of violence! It is OUR EXCLUSIVE RIGHT to elect our President and that sacred right has been infringed by the massive, planned, illegal election fraud conducted by corrupt Democrat/Socialist Party operatives across our nation to steal our vote. We will NOT stand for it."
The Ad compares the Extraordinary Executive actions implemented by President Abraham Lincoln in his efforts to save the Union during the Civil War and Presidential action needed to avoid a shooting civil war that is threatening our nation today.
Zawistowski said, "Without full confidence that our courts or Congress will indeed follow the 12th Amendment of the Constitution and defend our electoral process, the ad calls upon President Trump, like Lincoln, to exercise the Extraordinary Powers of his office and declare limited Martial Law to temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections in order to have the military implement a national re-vote that reflects the true will of the people. Federal Candidates only. Paper ballots. No Computers. Hand Counted with both Parties watching.Only registered voters. Photo ID to prove residence. Conducted safely with everyone wearing masks and six feet apart, just like we did in Ohio."
Here is the full text of the Ad:
Exercising Extraordinary Authority in Defense of Our Vote 
 May be Required because Martial Law is better than Civil War!
In the months following the start of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln struggled to preserve the Union. Many objected to Lincoln’s extraordinary use of Presidential authority, in particular his suspension of the right of “Habeas Corpus”. On June 12, 1863 Lincoln defended his extreme measures in a letter published in the New York Times. Citing Article I of the Constitution he argued: “Ours is a case of rebellion…in fact, a clear, flagrant, and gigantic case of rebellion; and the provision of the Constitution that ‘the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when, in cases of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it’, is the provision which specifically applies to our present case.” Lincoln used the same reasoning in justifying a series of extraordinary Presidential Orders:
  • Lincoln ordered hundreds of Northern newspapers that spoke against him to be shut down and their owners and editors arrested.
  • Lincoln ordered the arrest of Ohio Congressman Clement Vallandigham for the crime of speaking out against him.
  • Chief Justice of the US Roger Taney ruled that Lincoln had violated the US Constitution when he illegally suspended the Writ of Habeas Corpus. After hearing this Lincoln signed an arrest warrant to have the Chief Justice of the U.S. arrested.
  • Lincoln ordered the arrest of thousands in Maryland for the crime of “suspected Southern sympathies” including ordering the arrest of US Congressman Henry May from Maryland. These people were arrested and held in military prisons, without trial, some of them for years.
While some debate these measures still today, no one disagrees that Lincoln and his use of Presidential power were responsible for saving the Republic. While History, and even former President Obama, has judged Lincoln as perhaps our greatest President, few would have agreed at the time he took those actions. Then, as now, a President with courage and determination was needed to preserve the Union. Today, the current threat to our United States by the international and domestic socialist/communist left is much more serious than anything Lincoln or our nation has faced in its history - including the civil war. 
We have well-funded, armed and trained marxists in ANTIFA and BLM strategically positioned in our major cities acting openly with violence to silence opposition to their anti-American agenda. Attacking federal buildings and police, cowardly punching innocent people in the back of the head, assaulting people just eating in restaurants, and burning minority-owned businesses to the ground. All with elected officials in Democrat/Socialist-controlled cities openly encouraging this planned violence against civilians and businesses. Then, to advance their cause, these socialists are acting to “Defund the Police,” creating chaos and suspending the rule of law that protects millions of average, and particularly minority, Americans. The results being massive increases in violent crime and deaths in our cities and the destruction of small businesses orchestrated by those politicians and leftist groups, many funded by domestic and international communists. We are literally under attack from within!
Then there are admitted Democrat/Socialist federal officials plotting to finish gutting the US Constitution after 100 years of trying. They promise to take away critical individual rights like free speech, religious freedom and the 2nd Amendment; destroy states rights by eliminating the electoral college and more; pack the Supreme Court with activist anti-constitutionalist judges who will make law from the bench; give the right to vote to tens of millions of non-Americans; and open our borders to more illegals which will reduce wages. No one voted for these things that were hidden from the majority of Americans by the corrupt media. Not only do we have corrupt media, like in Lincoln’s day, we have a new and more sinister form of media in Big Tech, actively censoring free speech and promoting leftist propaganda to blind our citizens to their real goals and the real consequences of their actions - the end of America as we have known it.
The Socialist Left has been openly working to destroy the United States since Obama promised and tried to “transform” America in 2008-16, and having been stopped by the will of the American people, they openly staged a four year long coup attempt to remove the duly elected President. Culminating in this corrupt and provably fraudulent current election planned to illegally and un-constitutionally deny the American people their most sacred honor, right and privilege - which is the right to elect their Representatives! How can we have a Representative Republic if we cannot hold fair elections to elect our Representatives? There is no doubt that this attempted stealing of these elections again “is a case of rebellion…in fact, a clear, flagrant, and gigantic case of rebellion” that requires exercising extraordinary authority to preserve our Union.
President Trump, you and every other official in our local, state and federal governments, and everyone in law enforcement and in our military have sworn an oath that says “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” It is time for everyone who swore that oath to act upon it. The enemies are within our gates and our Constitution and Nation are in real risk of being lost to this socialist/communist invasion unless you act decisively.
At least half of all Americans do not and will not accept this fraudulent election because of the eyewitness testimony, and the material, statistical and mathematical evidence of OVERWHELMING fraud. The other half will not accept the outcome if the courts see the evidence of fraud and rightfully overturn the election! The Left has literally been planning riots just for that occasion for months. We the People must not and WILL NOT cede our exclusive Constitutional right to elect our Representatives to judges, lawyers, courts, Governors, Secretary’s of State, Congress, corrupt election officials and local politicians, the corrupt media - or Leftist threats of violence! It is OUR EXCLUSIVE RIGHT to decide our Representatives not theirs! Therefore, We the People MUST demand a NEW and fair national vote, a vote that all Americans can trust and live by regardless of the winner!Without a fair vote, we fear, with good reason, the threat of a shooting civil war is imminent. Gun sales are at an all time high and 40% are first time gun owners looking to defend themselves, their property, and their rights. Therefore, Mr. President you must act now before there is no peaceful way left to preserve our Union.
When the legislators, courts and/or Congress fail to do their duty under the 12th Amendment, you must be ready Mr. President to immediately declare a limited form of Martial Law, and temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections, for the sole purpose of having the military oversee a national re-vote. A vote that assures a fair election in every jurisdiction and reflects the true will of the people. Federal candidates only. Paper ballots. No computers. Hand-counted with both parties watching every vote. Only registered voters. Photo ID to prove residence. Conducted safely with everyone wearing masks and six feet apart, just like we did in Ohio. Only then can the winning candidate be accepted as legitimate by a true majority of We the People who must give our consent to be justly governed! Unfortunately we are at a point where we can only trust our military to do this because our corrupt political class and courts have proven their inability to act fairly and within the law.
You must also act, like Lincoln did, to silence the destructive media’s one-sided propaganda designed and proven to influence the election outcome, and end the unlawful censorship of Big Tech, to restore the confidence of the American People in our electoral process or we cannot continue as a nation. Failure to do so could result in massive violence and destruction on a level not seen since the Civil War. Limited Martial Law is clearly a better option than Civil War!
Many will object to these actions, as they did in Lincoln’s day, but we assure you that We the People understand that no less action will suffice to prevent the loss of our Constitutional right to vote and preserve our Republic. It is time to honor your oath, Mr. President. It is time for you to boldly act to save our nation as Lincoln did. We the People will support a national re-vote. We will also have no other choice but to take matters into our own hands, and defend our rights on our own, if you do not act within your powers to defend us.

Senate Report Shows Biden Is
a National Security Risk

Who Cannot Be President!
Patriots will Defy DeWine Curfew Mandates
in Multiple Communities this week!

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, November 4, 2020
Akron, OH - Tom Zawistowski, President of the Ohio based TEA Party affiliated We the People Convention, tonight celebrated Ohio's decisive vote to Re-Elect President Donald J. Trump for President. Trump was declared the winner after it was clear that his margin of victory far exceeded the number of outstanding and uncounted absentee and provisional ballots. At the time the race was called, Trump had 3,074,418 votes (53.6%) versus 2,601,681 (45.19%) with only 311,519 absentee and provisional votes still not counted. The 8% margin of victory over Joe Biden matches Trump's 8% win over Hillary Clinton in Ohio in 2016.
Zawistowski said, "I want to thank the tens of thousands of TEA Party and Liberty group volunteers and group leaders who supported the plan that the We the People Convention unveiled over 18 months ago to assure Trump would win Ohio again in 2020. These Patriots contributed to fund our five station Ohio Radio Network that allowed us to talk directly to Ohio citizens all year. They funded our highly acclaimed podcast and website, as well as our email and text messaging systems. Most of all, these Partiots grabbed on to our Sign Wave, Trump Train Road Rally and Barn Billboard programs and made them unbelievably successful and effective. These efforts generated tens millions of impressions that got our pro-Trump message out directly to voters. We knew that we would be censored by social media and ignored by traditional media in 2020, because that is how we beat them in 2016. Our comprehensive campaign efforts generated far more impressions than we could ever get from social media and was a key to today's election results."
Zawistowski continued, "Then there was our relationship with the National Rifle Association-Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) which allowed us to win Ohio for Trump in 2016 and this year allowed us to fight for Trump not just in Ohio but all over this nation. I want to thank NRA-ILA Grassroots Field Director David Conte and the leadership of the NRA-ILA for trusting the Ohio Patriots to lead their efforts in this critical election. I want to thank the hundreds of dedicated Ohio volunteers who worked tirelessly for months and earned the respect of the NRA for their unbelievable productivity. The Ohio Team sent out over 2 million text messages, knocked on thousands of doors and mailed 20,000+ hand written postcards to key voters in Ohio. Then helped do millions more text messages in 35 states getting out the vote not only for President Trump but also for five US Senate races and three US House races. What the Ohio Team accomplished was truly extraordinary and the results of this effort became apparent tonight."
Zawistowski added. "We want to congratulate Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose and his staff and all of the County Boards of Elections for running a clean and fair election under circumstances that were dramatically more complicated by our states response to the Coronavirus. Certainly we want to thank the 55,000 Ohioans who stepped up to work the polls to make it possible for the rest of us to vote in person at the polls on election day - which approximately 2.5 million Ohioans did safely. Our organization sincerely thanks its thousands of supporters who worked the polls yesterday throughout Ohio."
Zawistowski concluded, "We will be watching the national results in anticipation of an electoral vote victory for the President in the days ahead. The President has a clear path to victory once all the legal votes are counted. What all of America is witnessing this election is a rejection by the American people of the anti-American agenda of the Democrat/Communist Left, the entire regressive movement, all of academia, the incompetent and out of touch media, the statists in our government, the anti-capitalist globalist, and their allies in Big Tech. This election is a referendum on the choice between Individual Freedom and Liberty and State Control. In Ohio the voters decisively rejected government overreach and tyranny and we expect that the rest of the nation will as well in the end."
