January 6th Patriots held as Political Prisoners

Did you know that 50 people who were at the Capital in Washington DC on January 6, 2021, are being held in a federal prison? Yes, they have been there for several months, some even held in solitary confinement.

T.E.A. has been following this story for several weeks now, mostly through reports from Tom Z. of We The People Convention. We have even written and sent postcards and letters to the prisoners. We encourage you to write cards and letters of encouragement to the prisoners. Addresses and detailed information about how to do is supplied here.

Here is another report that explains more about the situation these prisoners are in. It is a report from the Epoch Times.

A rally for the political prisoners was held in front of the U.S. Capital on Saturday, September 18, 2021. Watch video of event here. Rallies are also being held in at least 13 state capitals. See list here.

What can be done?

The next TEA meeting will be on Saturday, April 10. Here is information on one of the topics which will be presented.

 “Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates”

With the advancement of overreaching bureaucrats and elected executives at every level of government, the common question is “What can be done about it?”

Join us as we learn about the Doctrine whereby the locally elected have the right, authority and responsibility to stand against arbitrary and pernicious actions by a higher authority. Find out how we can work with and support our local elected officials to hold the line against tyrannical state and federal initiatives. 

Tom Niewulis will present that which our Founders understood in their stand against despotism and tyranny at all levels of government. Discover the truth about the duties presented in The Doctrine of The Lesser Magistrates.

Book of same title: The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates:  A Proper Resistance to Tyranny and a Repudiation of Unlimited Obedience to Civil Government by Matthew J. Trewhella  (2013)

Excerpt from back cover:  America has entered troubling times.  The rule of law is crumbling.  The massive expansion of Federal government power with its destructive laws and policies is of grave concern to many.  But what can be done to quell the abuse of power by civil authority?  Are unjust or immoral actions by the government simply to be accepted and their lawless commands obeyed?  How do we know when the government has acted tyrannically?  Which actions constitute proper and legitimate resistance? 

Join us on April 10th to find out the answers to these critical questions.  Also, take advantage of the material on Tom’s website linked below.  This is a superb opportunity to learn what we can do in response to the tyranny we have all experienced for over a year now.

A Clear Choice for America

Theme of TEA booth at the 2019 Lorain County Fair was “A Clear Choice for America”.

What does this mean? Where did this come from? Clear choice between what choices?

TEA rented a booth last week at the Lorain County Fairgrounds in Wellington, Ohio. Considering all the talk of socialist policies by the candidates at the Democratic Party debates and in the mainstream media, it seemed appropriate to define what socialism is. Then, by extension, we thought socialism would be better understood by contrasting it with values on the other end of the spectrum, conservatism. Thus was born the idea in our fair booth planning committee to display a sample list of socialist values and sample list of conservative values.

Here are the signs that were displayed.
