Announcing a $20,000 Matching Donation Challenge for our 2020 Ohio Radio Network Campaign!
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. Please Donate TODAY and share this email with others!

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!

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.
The Project Veritas Video Exposing Google’s efforts to censor conservatives and affect the outcome of US elections has been removed from YouTube – which is owned by Google. If you didn’t see the Video yesterday, you MUST watch it on Project Veritas’s website at this link or by clicking the Image:
Project Veritas PROVES Google is out to reverse YOUR vote in 2016 and DEFEAT Donald Trump in 2020! They are actively, knowingly, INTENTIONALLY censoring YOU, misleading YOU, INDOCTRINATING YOU – on your Internet searches, on your GMail Account, on your Google doc’s, on your Android Phone, on your Cromebook, EVERYWHERE! Stop using them!
Only use the Brave Browser and use only StartPage.com as your search engine regardless of the browser you use. Change your gmail email to a reagan.com or protonmail.com email. Know your enemy, by watching this video, but take steps to DEFEND your Freedom of Speech!
The Ohio Liberty Coalition state meeting 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!
The Iranians and the US Deep State, perhaps with the aid of Israel, are trying to get President Trump into a War that we don’t want and we don’t need. In the past, disruption of oil in the Middle East was a serious threat to U.S. business because we depended on that oil to run our nation. NOW WE DO NOT! Thanks to President Trump unleashing the US Energy Sector by encouraging Fracking, we don’t need ANY oil from the Middle East! So, why would we go to War with IRAN because they shot down a drone – even it fit cost $120 Million? We shouldn’t!
The President was RIGHT to stop the counter attack “because it wasn’t proportionate.” Israel wants to get us into a war with Iran so we will destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities. The Deep State wants to get us into a War with Iran because it will cause Trump to break one of his Campaign promises and help them defeat him in the 2020 election. We the People do NOT want Trump to take us to war with Iran because it is OUR sons and daughters who will die in that fight, not the sons and daughters of elite inside the beltway leftists, and it is our Freedom that will be lost if Trump loses in 2020!
I am not saying we don’t take any action against bad actors, but the fact is that the sanctions on Iran are working and we don’t need to go to war to overthrow the radical islamic rulers in Iran we can starve them out. Call the White House and urge the President NOT to be bullied by the media and the Deep State into doing something he knows he should not do!

Last night President Trump launched his re-election Campaign – but we don’t have the tools we need to win Ohio for him in 2020! Please watch the video to Understand what We are Up Against – and what YOU need to do to Ensure a Trump victory!
We are never going to sell people on allegedly conservative principles that end up making conservatives less free. After all, when we sell conservatism, we are selling freedom, in contrast to the perpetual soul-killing tyranny offered by leftist ideology. So, the idea that conservative principles require us to defer to the growing oppression of the left because it is delivered through the medium of allegedly private corporations is nonsense.
Don’t want none? Don’t start none. That’s one of my conservative principles. The corporations started it, and now it’s our right – our duty – to finish it.
The fussy Bow Tie Boyz of conservatism will tell you that this calls your conservative bona fides into question. Well, question away. If “conservatism” means I have to take guff from some goateed 20-something helming a unicorn start-up who thinks I have way too many rights and way too much privilege because my ancestors came from Stuttgart and I wield a penis, count me out of conservatism. I am utterly indifferent to whether the aspiring dictator who seeks to force me to obey is a government employee or a corporate CEO. Neither is acceptable, meaning I will not accept either.
The Big Tech jerks from Silicon Valley are crusading SJWs with a few billion bucks lying around, and they have decided that their target for domination is us. They created the new public square that is the internet in general and social media in particular (check out Glenn “Instapundit” Reynold’s new book), and now they have realized that when everyone gets a say, some people are going to say things their Bay Area pals dislike. As a result, the Instafacetwittertubes have taken to policing the electronic soapboxes against anyone who might cause tension at a Santa Monica Chardonnay tasting. The Bingyahoogles are busy tipping the search engine scales toward their preferred politicians and perspectives, all leftist with an SJW twist. And companies like Salesforce are deciding what legal products, like guns, you can and can’t sell (and therefore, buy) based on what political ideas are in fashion in Menlo Park.
I don’t remember voting for any of these people to run our country. Do you?
But even as they use their power to undermine our ability to participate in the governance of our own society, we are informed that our True Conservative™ principles foreclose our ability to use our own power (in this case, GOP control of the executive branch and the Senate) to defend ourselves. The reason? Oh, well these are private companies, you see, and they can do what they please to limit your ability to be a fully participating American citizen. You can’t fight back using your most powerful weapon, your dwindling political power, because reasons and because.
You try to hit me with a bottle and I’m hitting you with a bat. The aggressor does not get to cite my ideology to demand that I limit my own ability to effectively defeat him. What would ever possess me to agree to that?
And the idea that the conservative gospel commands that private entities are somehow untouchable is ridiculous. Let’s dispense with this silly idea that it is utterly unconservative to regulate the actions of a private business via a simple question:
Are you cool with companies refusing to let black people sit at a lunch counter? With denying them a Twitter account because they are Jewish? With telling women “Sorry sweetie, this software is for men only?”
Of course not.
But at one time, the idea that the sanctity of property rights gave a private business complete autonomy to discriminate was a “principled conservative position.” But this is not a “principled conservative position” anymore; even National Reviewrepudiated having held it a half century ago. Today, mainstream conservatives reject the notion that the government cannot regulate against discrimination based upon race or religion. And it is well-established in the law that the Constitution gives the Congress the power to enact laws doing so, except where the government violates the religious liberty of the business owner, so put that in your cake and bake it.
The “principle” that we can’t tell a private business who it must do business with is no principle at all. We accept that discrimination can be curbed, leaving only a debate over what kind of discrimination should be curbed.
Ma’am, we have established what you are – now the only question is your price.
So, why not bar political discrimination in social media, internet infrastructure (like search engines) and in business in general? We correctly bar racial discrimination because it is unJudeo-Christian and unAmerican to create a caste of second-class citizens by denying some people the ability to equally participate in society. The political discrimination we see today bars citizens from full participation in society and in their own governance. A citizen who cannot express his ideas is crippled; a citizen who loses a bank account or can’t buy a gun to protect his family because some software maker doesn’t like the idea of peasants having pitchforks is no longer a citizen but a serf. Why should conservatives allow themselves to be morphed into second class citizens? Isn’t our liberty enough of an interest to warrant government protection?
Well, not to the liberals. And not to the GOP establishment types who prefer us uppity Normals sit down, shut up and turn out on Election Day to vote for whatever Jeb!-like loser they put forward to go to DC and represent the Chamber of Commerce.
We keep hearing conservatives throw around the word “statist,” but that’s not the debate-ending trump card they think it is. We are conservatives, not anarchists (like my pal Michael Malice, whose essential book The New Right just dropped). There are things the state should do – like protect the citizenry. It should protect their lives from invaders, their property from criminals and, yes, their right to be full citizens from nefarious tech titans who want everyone between I-5 and I-95 to nod and obey.
The answer is not always state action, but sometimes it is state action.
This is not a call for willy-nilly, poorly thought-through regulation. Anyone who took Poli Sci 101 understands “regulatory capture,” the process by which larger corporations invite regulation knowing they can control the regulators and leverage it to secure their position and bar competition. The idea is not to impose a detailed regulatory regime requiring a legion of easily corrupted micromanaging bureaucrats. Rather, it is to establish simple principles that can be enforced by the wronged parties themselves – much like the racial and sexual anti-discrimination framework we have today.
Enact a few simple laws requiring social media outlets to allow all matter allowed under the First Amendment. Keep the Section 230 protections – the idea that truly neutral forums should not be liable for the actions of individuals using the forum is sound, just now we would require the tech companies to honor the “neutral” part. Also, require all business to not bar their use by legal industries or on the basis of political views. That way, for example, we don’t have gun control that cannot be voted into effect via the people’s representatives being imposed by woke corporations. Nor would people who like Trump have to worry about having their Wells-Fargo bank account closed or not being able to get a Verizon phone.
We don’t need a big new bureaucratic apparatus to enforce these rules. We have lawyers. Discrimination law is mostly enforced by lawyers suing on behalf of people who claim they were wronged. Assign hefty statutory damages amounts to various kinds of discrimination, allow the recovery of punitive damages where appropriate, provide for injunctions against further misconduct (or to restore banned people) and award attorneys fees to successful claimants – this is how we enforce our rights without a huge new federal agency. Let’s let hired gun attorneys clean up Dodge City (and I’ve seen plaintiffs’ lawyers get awarded $600+ per hour, which will even make Mark Zuckerberg take notice).
There is no actual conservative principle that requires us to shrug and accept being ostracized from the basic structure of modern American society for the sin of defying the conventional wisdom of a bunch of Scat Francisco swells. They started this. An essential component of the unwritten deal with big business, part of the reason they could claim to be political non-combatants, was that – at least toward the masses – that’s generally what they were. Your Uniteds and Bayers might work behind the scenes for or against legislation that affected their rice bowl, but they did not mess with our rights. Yet today, you have airlines shunning the NRA and drugmakers boycotting liberal shows all the way up to YouTube denying services to conservatives for expressing conservative views. These are attacks on us, as citizens, and this is both new and unacceptable. They can’t be culture warriors when it suits them and claim to be hors de combat when we prepare to punch back.
They chose to play horsey. This is horsey. Unleash the lawyers to regulate them into submission.
There is an alternative to fighting back, and it’s not a happy alternative for you. It is you being silenced and intimidated by a liberal elite leveraging its corporate allies to force you into submission and obedience. I write about what happens when the left wins in my action-packed yet super-snarky novels about the United States’ split into red and blue countries, People’s Republic, Indian Country and Wildfire. Not surprisingly, liberals and the fussy castaways from the Weekly Standard hailed my novels as “Appalling.” But then, my key conservative principle is “Do whatever it takes to defeat those leftist SOBs who want to take my freedom and money,” so of course they hate my books.
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.
