When your elections are screwed and other countries
have already many times and rightly used the rational
precedent of 'fix the election process and re-vote',
some people are bringing fine and simple solutions...  Re-Vote with Tom Zawistowski


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.

Paid For by the We the People Convention

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, December 1, 2020

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 the literal civil war that is dividing our nation
today. 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.
