We are going to fund and build a statewide five station weekly radio network so that we can communicate with the general public in 2020. We must do this because we are not going to be allowed to use social media or the internet or regular media like newspapers and TV like we did to win in 2016. (Click Here to Learn More.)
If you have not yet donated, we NEED your support - CLICK HERE to donate. With our matching challenge if you give $100 they will give us another $100. If you donate $500 our matching donor will add another $500. Please give what you can to help us reach our goal of $80,000 so that we can fund and build our weekly radio network and our voice will not be silenced during the 2020 elections!
Let me be clear, Donald Trump is not going to just get re-elected without the radical regressive Leftist Democrat/Socialist pulling out all the stops to defeat him. We NEED this weekly Saturday morning radio show to message the average Ohio voter about the lies they are being told and to direct our activist so that they can turn out the votes we need to win in 2020. Please Donate TODAY and share this information with others!

July 11, 2009 a group of about 300 citizens gathered on the lawn of the Portage County Court House in Ravenna, OH to listen to speakers and express their concerns about the policies of the Obama Administration. Particularly their efforts to impose Government controlled single payer healthcare upon American citizens as well as their radical environmental and social policies. That was the first meeting of the Portage County TEA Party.
We note our 10th Anniversary, this July 11, 2019 with great pride in our achievements and we believe that our efforts have greatly benefited the citizens of Portage County in very tangible ways. Since 2009, no organization in Portage County has done more to inform the public about the real costs of government and done more to save the average citizen significant money.
The Portage County TEA Party has SAVED every household in Portage County $3,623 in the past 10 years!
Since 2009, the members of the Portage County TEA Party have used their dues and donations to print and hand out informational literature, make phone calls, and hold public meetings, which resulted in the DEFEAT of at least 37 ADDITIONAL Levies and tax increases over the past 10 years. We have calculated, with the help of the Portage County Board of Elections, that the saving to the citizens of Portage County is at least $250 Million dollars in SAVED TAXES since our group formed - meaning that the efforts of the Portage County TEA Party has saved, on average, every one of the 69,000 households in Portage County $3,623.00! Since most of those levies were not in Aurora or Kent, families in the rest of Portage County actually saved over $7,000 thanks to the efforts of the Portage County TEA Party!
Since 2010, the Portage County TEA Party has turned Portage County from a "Blue County" to a "Red County" at the state and federal level sweeping all the state offices, for the first time since 1958, starting in 2010 and then again in 2014 and 2018. Most importantly the Portage County TEA Party was the critical factor in winning Portage County and Northeast Ohio for Donald Trump in 2016 which was the key to his winning Ohio and thus winning the Presidency.
The Portage County TEA Party took on the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 2011 for targeting us illegally in an effort to stop our right to political speech and defeated them in court in 2017:
In 2012-13 the Portage County took the lead in defending natural gas and oil "fracking" in Ohio and prevented the Obama Administration and their radical left environmental groups, and their Russian funders, from preventing the United States from becoming energy independent as we are today under President Donald Trump. The actions of the Portage County TEA Party have been directly responsible for creating 200,000 good paying Ohio jobs and over $74 Billion invested in Ohio since 2011.
The Portage County TEA Party and the national TEA Party Movement, which is NOT a Political Party but a political Movement, has had a major positive impact on all Americans:
Here is a list of many of the accomplishments of the TEA Party:
In 2020, our nation will decide if we wish to remain a sovereign nation that puts YOUR Individual Freedom and Liberty and Prosperity ahead of the needs of the state or if we are going to give away the most successful form of government ever devised and replace it with "one world government" in which the needs of the state are all that matters - socialism/communism. We ask all citizens to Join the TEA Party and help us DEFEAT the regressive radical Left that is attempting to destroy our Constitution, the rule of law, and our nation. Just click the button to sign up and get on our email list so that you can help America win in 2020!
First, as the chart shows, we have already raised $18,500 toward our goal of $80,000 to fund our weekly state wide radio network! Thank you to all who have given to date! We very much appreciate your donations. I will note that most donations are $120 with many of $20. Everyone and every dollar counts!
Second, a generous Ohio Patriot has offered to match any donation you make now up to $20,000 total! That means if you CLICK HERE to donate $100 they will give us another $100. If you donate $500 our matching donor will add another $500. Please give what you can to help us reach our goal of $80,000 so that we can fund and build our weekly radio network and our voice will not be silenced during the 2020 elections!
A study we did in April found that 243,000 people in Ohio are active supporters of the TEA Party. Previous surveys show that 2.2 million Ohio adults support the TEA Party movement in general. If each of them just donated $10 once per year we could drive every RINO out of this state!
Right now we just need 4,000 Patriots to donate $20 to build our radio network. It is long past time for us to stand on our own two feet as a movement and fund the fights we need to fight to keep our nation and restore representative governance and the rule of law.

Message from General Washington to his Troops in New York in 1777 as 150 British Warships Sailed into the Harbor
"The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves . . . The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army . . . Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and show the whole world, that a freeman contending for liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth.”
We celebrate today, America's Independence Day, because we are the unborn millions who these men fought and died to give the greatest gift of all - Liberty! We celebrate our Liberty, and individual freedom, and the prosperity that our form of government - not Kings or Monarchs or Dictators - has given to us based on the actions of our forefathers 243 years ago.
While too many try to diminish the significance of what the founding of America has meant, not just to Americans but to the world, they cannot succeed in their efforts. What the men and women who dared to found our nation did in 1776 changed the world forever and for the better.
Today we show our appreciation by remembering and celebrating all the benefits that have come to us as a direct results of their sacrifices for the radical idea that government should serve the people; that the people can govern themselves; that rights are "self evident" and are given by God not man; that a combination of free market capitalism and individual property rights is the only way that man can be truly free and exercise his/her liberty in a free society.
Today, we, like Washington and his men, now face a powerful regressive global force that intends to wipe our sovereign nation off the map, to rewrite our history and discard the gifts our forefathers gave us. They intend to re-impose the power of the state over the rights and liberty of the individual. It is they who wish to police our speech, control our every action, control even our thoughts.
Today, it is YOU who now stands in the boots of Washington and his men, and it is YOU upon which "the fate of unborn millions will now depend." I call upon you to use today to "animate and encourage each other, and show the whole world, that a freeman contending for liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth" - including the Communist/Socialist/Leftist in our own country!
As Franklin said after signing the new Constitution "It's a Republic . . . if you can keep it!" You and I will decide in the years to come if we can keep it or not. Remember that as you celebrate our Independence today!
Tom Zawistowski President We the People Convention
President Trump was asked by Tucker Carlson about the fact that Google is trying to make sure that Trump does not get re-elected. Unfortunately, President Trump reveled that he does not yet recognize how much more weaponized social media and Google will be against him in 2020 vs the previous election.
This should concern all of you. He hinted that "people" were looking into the censorship of conservatives by these companies, but he did not say that he would not allow it to continue. I emplore all of you to go to this link to learn just how serious this threat is to US in the 2020 election and consider donating to help fund our Ohio TEA Party Radio Network.
They will have exhibitors and national guest speakers - like CL Bryant, and Steve Moore! You will be able to network with liberty-loving patriots from all around Ohio. Lunch is included at this FREE event! Doors & exhibitor tables open: 8:45 a.m. Program begins: 9:30 a.m. Come for an hour or stay all day!
Citizens fight through rain, flooding and closed roads to attend Powerful Greg Lawson Presentation Thursday!
With Iran Shooting Down a US Drone
Yesterday's Topic Could Not have been More Timely!
"The Threats to the US by China, Russia and Iran"
Thanks to Greg Lawson for making the rain filled trip to and from Columbus to educate NE Ohio citizens about the history of China, Russia and Iran and how that history drives their actions today. The bottom line is that these three nations hate the "West" and the US in particular - and historically speaking they have good reasons for that. What American's do not understand is that we have entered into a new cold war and we are going to have to fight and defeat these countries, economically, politically and militarily.
Greg Lawson pointed out that Donald Trump is doing exactly what we need to do by imposing tariffs on China and sanctions on Russia and Iran. No other US President's have been willing to do what needs to be done to stop China from steeling our technology and our jobs and using our money to build a military that can compete with ours. However, he made it clear that we, the American people, are going to have to be willing to pay a price for Trump's stand because Freedom is NOT FREE! We are going to have to pay more for products but hopefully more of them will be manufactured here in the US.
It is up to YOU and I to educate our fellow citizens about the real threats from China, Russia and Iran and help them understand that we need to WORK and VOTE to keep our economy and military strong because we are going to need all of our resources to win this new cold war! As Greg pointed out in his closing statements, that means that we must also stop the efforts by the Communist Left in the US from taking over our Government because their efforts will guarantee that we lose this new Cold War.
Finally, he made it clear that America has become fat and happy and lazy over the last 30 years because we have not had a real challenger since the fall of the Soviet Union. His thought was that once it becomes clear that China is a serious threat, it may help America come together, as we have in the past, to focus on a common enemy and realize that we are all on the same team and we need to defend the greatest nation in the history of the world. It was a GREAT presentation and we thank Greg for giving it to us!
Please mark your calendar for Thursday night, June 20th, two weeks from Tonight at 7:00 PM at Maplewood Career Center. The Portage County TEA Party Speakers Bureau will be hosting a presentation by Greg Lawson from the Buckeye Institute in which he will explain the threats to America by China, Russia and Iran.
Greg R. Lawson is a research fellow at The Buckeye Institute, but his passion is studying foreign affairs and in particular Russia. This presentation will inform you about the very serious threats - economically; militarily; and politically by these three dangerous adversaries - that are not getting the coverage they deserve by our fake news media and even on conservative media.
Please plan to attend and bring a friend. The Maplewood Cafeteria will be closed on that date, so we will be meeting in Conference Room B which is just down the hall and to the left of the cafeteria. Refreshments will be served and the meeting is open to the public.
I am writing to you once again to ask for your aid in a matter of tremendous significance to our nation and to our prosperity agenda. As always, I do not ask for your help unless it is critically important to your Individual Freedom and Liberty. Today is one of those occasions.
You may not be aware of what the left, in the form of the radical prosecutors in New York State, are doing to squeeze Paul Manafort in order to build a criminal case against Donald Trump in state court. As Alan Dershowitz points out, it is clear that a sitting President cannot be charged with a FEDERAL crime while in office, it is not clear that he cannot be charged with a state crime!
I will not explain what the left is trying to do to entrap the President, but Alan Dershowitz spells it all out for you in this important interview with Dennis Prager:
Now, Alan Dershowitz is telling Trump that he MUST pardon Paul Manafort NOW! By doing so, we accomplish several important goals. First, Manafort gets out of prison TODAY and never goes to Rikers Island where he can be coerced to cooperate. Second, then New York State must bring state charges against Manafort for financial misconduct, which will take months, but most importantly, state law will not allow them to torture Manafort to try and get him to “compose” a crime against Trump to gain his release like they are trying to do now. Third, Trump must pardon Manafort NOW because what they have done to him and are planning to do to him is not who we are as a nation and is a flagrant abuse of our judicial system for purely political reasons!
They broke down the door of his home when he was a cooperating witness, the Mueller team put him in solitary confinement trying to get him to make false charges against Trump, when that did not work, they charged him in New York State, now they are making the unusual step of moving Manafort from a minimum security federal prison to solitary confinement in a New York City Federal Prison for one reason - to get him to implicate the President in a crime. That is NOT our Justice System that is what they do in Third World Dictatorships!
We cannot allow this miscarriage of justice but most of all we cannot allow this “tactic” to entrap our President to be deployed by our enemies! PLEASE take action today to message the White House and give your support for the President to make this pardon as soon as he returns from Normandy! I cannot express the importance of you and your organizations taking action immediately and I trust that you will do so.
