2021 EVENT CALENDAR lists events sponsored by Ohio liberty groupsEvery day it seems as if there is another liberty group which has been banned from social media or has had it’s reach diminished by the social media censors.  In Ohio, it has happened to Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom  (OAMF), very likely to Patriots America, and to countless individuals like you and me.  While the FON website cannot replace social media, we can lessen the impact of the censoring by serving as an EVENT INFORMATION HUB for liberty groups throughout Ohio, just as we did during the 2020 election.  As a case in point, Patriot America has an event this Saturday morning, June 12, from 10 to 12 in Preble County with Massey Campos.  You can find all the event details here.

LIBERTY ACTION NETWORK:  MOVING FORWARD!
In earlier communications, we have talked about the Liberty Action Network (LAN).  It is a project Kirsten and I have been working on along with Liberty Mel and Coach Dave.  In a nutshell, the concept of the LAN is to bring leaders from various liberty groups across Ohio together to share ideas and to unite by supporting each other’s Calls to Action.  To make the network more effective, we created five regions:  Northeast, Northwest, Central, Southwest and Southeast, and each region will be led two (2) regional captains.  The captains will lead regular meetings for  leaders in their respective regions to exchange ideas.  The captains will comprise the LAN Council which will get support from the LAN Admin team (Kirsten, Liberty Mel, Coach Dave and me(Tom)).  The aim is to put more steel on the same targets.  Heaven knows there are plenty of targets which need all of our attention including your attention.

To get the LAN up and running, the LAN Admin team has held several regional organizational meetings to explain the concepts behind the LAN, including recruiting volunteers to serve as interim regional captains through December 31, 2021.  As this is being written, we have had regional meetings for the Southeast, Northwest, Northeast and Southwest regions, with a meeting for the central region planned for next week!  We are very excited about this and believe this is building the vehicle in which we can invest our time, effort and money to earn our freedom back!  More to come!

TAKE time to WATCH this.  This is where the U.S.A. headed if we don’t get our crap together.

Jordan Peterson interviewed Yeonmi Park, defector from North Korea.  Click to hear this young woman’s incredible story.  It is “an unforgettable, horrifying and prescient conversation about human cruelty, fortitude, real tyranny, personal responsibility, ignorance, and the likely consequences of our profound lack of appreciation for Liberty”.  Quick Notes click here.

Let’s STOP H.B. 73 in Ohio

Let’s STOP H.B. 73 in Ohio.  It reduces learning about American Government and American History.  Ohio students need MORE civic learning, not less.  

In Ohio, the liberal teachers’ union is pushing to do away with requirements in American Government and American History.  H.B. 73, the reduce end-of-course assessments bill, that is currently in the Primary and Secondary Education Committee in the Ohio House, is scheduled for opponent hearing on Tuesday, May 18th at 3:00 p.m. in room 313. If you can’t come in person, you can submit written testimony or you can send a brief email to each member of the committee, telling them to oppose H.B. 73.  Here is a sample message– feel free to use it!

Easy-to-call list is shown below or CLICK HERE TO MESSAGE THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS!

H.B.73 threatens to kill the requirement of Constitutional studies in the Ohio classroom from grades 8-12. Ohio Currently requires the teaching of the Founding Documents of our Republic in all 611 school districts, with an end-of-course exam requirement that assures the subject matter will be taught!

After a 12-year effort, our friends at the Ohio Christian Alliance, along with interested parties in Ohio, urged the 129th General Assembly in 2012 to pass what became known as the Founding of America Documents Curriculum which requires the study of the original texts of The Declaration of Independence, The Northwest Ordinance, The U.S. Constitution with emphasis on The Bill of Rights, The Ohio Constitution, and the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers.

If H.B. 73 were to pass it would eliminate the end-of-course exam requirement for American Government and American History. Teachers and school districts would no longer be required to teach the subjects. That is why we are urging you to make calls TODAY [to leave voicemail messages] and write emails to STOP H.B. 73!

Please understand – They were already successful in eliminating American History and Government from the high school graduation test two years ago.  Four years ago, they eliminated American History requirement from the 4th-6th grades. This battle to keep the Founding of American Documents Curriculum in the high school is our last stand. That’s why we need you to CALL today!

We are not alone in our concern. Here is an article titled “America shouldn’t sacrifice its U.S. history and government exams on the anti-testing alter.

We need you to make your voice heard to save Constitutional studies.

Thanks to the success of the Founding of America Documents Curriculum, Ohio’s current American Government and American History standards, our Ohio students have been scoring better each year in their proficiency in American Government and American History, far better than their counterparts in other states.  It begs the question – Why does the liberal teachers union want to kill this curriculum?

Thank you for your effort in working to save our constitutional republic one call at a time!

Take Action: Support President Huddle!

Take Action today to SUPPORT President Huddle.

Send email to the OSBA Trustees TODAY, Friday, May 7, 2021.

We must take a stand and let the powers that be throughout Ohio know we will not tolerate Critical Race Theory (CRT) being taught in Ohio’s Schools!  

CRT: AN UN-AMERICAN TOOL FOR DIVIDING — NOT UNITING

In a nutshell, the goal of CRT advocates is to divide Americans by race, and to use this division to permanently achieve political supremacy.  They do this by duping Americans into seeing themselves not as individuals with inalienable rights, but as members of a race which is in a permanent struggle of survival against all other races.  Rather than trying to fix the root causes of societal ills, CRT uses guilt, past wrongs, and propaganda to assign the blame for the problems of one race by placing them on another thereby fomenting distrust, hate and civil strife.  

To help you get a sense of the distorted outcomes CRT promotes, here is a portion of a poem written by an Ohio teacher:  

“I am ashamed of my white privileged skin. Ashamed of my white brothers and sisters with their small minds killing my innocent brothers and sisters because of a color.”

You can find more about CRT here and here.

THE BATTLE

Mr. Scott Huddle has taken a courageous stand by speaking out against using CRT in Ohio’s schools.  

Who is Scott Huddle?  He is the President of the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA), which is a member-driven advocacy organization for over 600 of Ohio’s school districts.  As a result of his just and brave stance regarding CRT, some OSBA members are calling for his resignation from OSBA.  You can find out more details about this disgraceful situation here.  

CALL TO ACTION:  EMAIL the OSBA Trustees  TODAY, Friday, May 7, 2021.

We cannot let truth tellers like Scott Huddle stand alone.  You must join with every like-minded parent and citizen and let the 32 OSBA Trustees (listed below) know you support Scott Huddle and reject Cancel Culture.  Below is the suggested email for the Trustees, and you can use this suggested subject line “Support President Huddle”:

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Dear OSBA Trustee,

I am writing to express my support of OSBA President Scott Huddle. According to news sources, President Huddle is under attack for comments he made regarding his concerns about Critical Race Theory. I share his concerns.

Our children should not be educated in a manner that is racially divisive, or that teaches them to judge differences in skin color instead of content of character. I am opposed to any local, state or federal requirement that would force a local school district to incorporate critical race theory into their instruction.  

President Huddle should be applauded for his courage and leadership, and I urge you to extend your support to him as well. I will be contacting my local school board members to share this information with them, and to encourage them to ensure that their membership in OSBA aligns with the beliefs and values of their constituency.

Sincerely,

Please send him an email today by clicking here.  Message suggestion:

Dear Secretary of State LaRose,

Despite your assurances the November, 2020 election in Ohio was the “most successful election” ever, I, and millions of other Ohioans, respectfully differ.  In an interview with Dr. Douglas Frank, PhD Physics, recently conducted by Mike Lindell, and available at https://lindelltv.com/, Dr. Frank presents overwhelming evidence of vote manipulation across the country including in OHIO!  The evidence presented for Ohio is not just in some cities or counties, but is demonstrated in ALL 88 COUNTIES in our great state.

Mr. LaRose, stop pretending everything is okay with Ohio’s electoral process, and DO YOUR JOB to protect election integrity in our state.  The corrupt system we have MUST GO, and has be replaced with an ALL PAPER BALLOT SYSTEM NOW! 

There is no more important issue facing our state, and all Ohioans are expecting you to be a forceful proponent of restoring fair, free and honest elections in Ohio! 

Sincerely,

(Your name)

End of the Country? CALL today to STOP H.R. 1

CALL TODAY!  It’s for ALL the MARBLES!

CALL TO ACTION FOR AMERICA

All Americans need to call or email their Senators today, tomorrow and Thursday (March 30-31, April 1, 2021) TO DEFEAT H.R. 1! 

H.R. 1, which is before the U.S. Senate, is the final culmination of the Leftist’s dream of forcing all of us under one party Democrat – Leftist rule.  This bill will lead to tyrants in Washington, D.C. telling all Americans how to live every aspect of their lives.  In essence, H.R. 1 will make America look like California – a one-party state where nearly half the citizens have no voice in their own governance.

In a nutshell, H.R. 1 takes the responsibility for running our elections away from the states and giving it to the federal government.  Among other things, it makes vote harvesting legal, it makes cleaning up the voter database for people who have moved or died harder and, MOST EGREGIOUSLY, it will lead to millions of illegal aliens and non-citizen residents being registered to vote In our elections! 

****

HERE IS WHAT YOU MUST DO: CALL the following Senators

(Note:  It is simple.  You just need to leave a voicemail message.)

  • Defend the filibuster and defeat H.R. 1:

Two Democrat Senators are key to preserving the Senate filibuster*:

  1. CALL Sen. Joe Manchin (West Virgina) 202-224-3954 https://www.manchin.senate.gov/contact-joe
  2. CALL Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (Arizona): 202-224-4521 https://www.sinema.senate.gov/contact-kyrsten

Also CALL the Ohio and GOP Senators and tell them to take out all the stops to defeat H.R. 1 at all costs!

  1. CALL Sen. Rob Portman (Ohio), 202-224-3353 https://www.portman.senate.gov/meet/contact
  2. CALL Sen. Sherrod Brown (Ohio), 202-224-2315, https://www.brown.senate.gov/contact/email
  3. CALL Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (Kentucky), 202-224-2541, https://www.mcconnell.senate.gov/public/index.cfm…

Find suggested call script below.

*The filibuster is a tactic used in the U.S. Senate to block or delay action on a bill or other measure.  A filibustering senator may endlessly debate an issue, or use any other means to obstruct or prevent action. The Senate can overcome a filibuster if it invokes cloture — a vote by 60 members of the Senate to place a 30-hour time limit on consideration of a bill.  Eliminating the filibuster would allow all legislation, including H.R. 1, to pass the senate with a simple majority vote.

More information on H.R. 1, go to these links.

Tom ‘Z’ Zawistowski, We the People Convention, has more information on HR 1, which can be found here (https://wethepeopleconvention.org/articles/Cruz-Explains-HR1). You can also view Tom’s March 27 podcast, which covers HR1 and much more, here (https://wethepeopleconvention.org/Podcast-Player-Page).

***********

Suggested CALL Script – Leave a voicemail message.

This is (your name), and I’m one of the tens of millions of people in this country who support the Constitution and the liberties and freedoms that it represents. Forcing fundamental changes upon our country by a simple majority vote is un-American, and I respectfully implore you to preserve the Senate filibuster to prevent that from happening with H.R. 1.

The pending H.R. 1 bill is misnamed for “For the People Act of 2021”.  This bill is about the federal government imposing its will over the people — not representing the people.  As a sovereign citizen, I sincerely ask you to preserve our country by preventing this legislation from becoming law.

Now is your chance to prove who you represent. May God give you the courage to do the right thing.

Thank you.

This applies to the WHOLE United States of America so share this article with ALL of your friends.

Lake Varsity Diner on the Winning Side

Uniontown, Ohio – Dozens of diners descended upon Lake Varsity Diner Saturday, February 27, 2021, for a delicious diner-style lunch.

Joe and Colleen Beasley, owners of the diner, were ready for the big game. The diners were there to show their support since the diner has been charged with various infractions of Governor DeWine’s various health orders.

Today, Monday, March 1, 2021, is a trial date for Lake Varsity Diner with the Stark County Court of Common Pleas. The public can call in to listen to the proceedings. Visit the Free Ohio Now website home page for the call-in information. Pictured L-R: Tom Hach, Exec. Director (Free Ohio Now), Joe Beasley (LVD Owner), Kirsten Hill and Jo Ann Campbell.

Free Ohio Now Organizes Trump Trains and Trump Waves

Cleveland, Ohio – Since its founding earlier this year, Free Ohio Now has worked tirelessly to promote the rule of law and to restore the rights of Ohioans under the Ohio and Federal Constitutions. We did this by organizing and promoting rallies against the

unconstitutional March shutdown, advocating for the regular start of school in Ohio as well as for in-person voting on election day, November 3.

In essence, Free Ohio Now is ‘Fighting the New Normal’, and every aspect of this fight has a political dimension to it, and all of them are impacted by the upcoming presidential election on November 3. Although there are two major candidates running for president, the team at Free Ohio Now have tried to take the personalities out of the equation and looked at where the parties would take our country. Based on our belief in individual rights, individual responsibility and that the rule of law should be applied equally, we are of the opinion the Republican platform best aligns with our principles.

JOIN US: To support the implementation of the Republican platform, Free Ohio Now will work through our network of leaders in counties throughout Ohio to organize Trump Trains and Trump sign and flag waving events from now through November 3. Trump Trains are convoys of cars and trucks which are decked out with Trump flags and positive messages which then travel around their respective counties to increase enthusiasm for President Trump and ultimately for the Republican platform. Beyond promoting its own events, Free Ohio Now will actively promote Trump events organized by other people or groups. Times and dates of these events can be found at freeohionow.com, which should be reviewed regularly to get the latest information.

Free Ohio Now asks that all rally participants to use their personal discretion in adhering to recommended COVID-19 safety guidelines. This is especially important for those who may be at high-risk.
