Zawistowski still fancies himself relevant, pleads with Trump

Ohio tea party leader and clown Tom Zawistowski is still at it. He still writes open letters to politicians as if he matters. He publishes them as if he has an iota of influence. He doesn’t.

He once promised that Governor John Kasich would lose reelection in 2014. He proceeded to recruit a number of laughable candidates to run against the governor. He said he had the organization to propel them to victory in the primary against Kasich. He couldn’t even get them on the ballot.

That year he also aimed to knock off a couple dozen other incumbents in that year’s primary. Once again, he bragged about the strength of his “organization”.

Can you feel the Panic in the Political Establishment???

Can you feel the change coming? Can you feel the power of the people surging? Can you sense the panic from the political establishment?
Have you heard about Shannon Jones begging RINO Senate Leader Keith Faber for more money for mailings this week because she is afraid of Kelly Kohl’s? Have you heard about the poll in the 8th Congressional district that shows John Boehner below 50% in his race against J.D. Winteregg? Do you know that Union backed RINO Dave Joyce in NEOhio is only at 35% in the polls and fighting for his life against Matt Lynch? 

Our “sweat equity” will beat their money…

He failed in spectacular fashion. He always does. No one in politics “panics” when Tom Z. opens his big mouth. They just laugh.

He promoted Lynch against Dave Joyce again in 2016. I’ll let you guess what the result was.

So here we are now, and just as I suspected would happen, President Donald Trump has stabbed conservatives in the back. The repeal of Obamacare couldn’t get enough votes. Instead of taking some of the responsibility for this failure (he said it would be easy and fast, remember?), he blamed everyone around him except himself. It’s what Trump does.

But then today, he actually called out the House Freedom Caucus by name in another one of his ill-advised tweets.

Poor Tom. He jumped on the Trump train during the primary and now Trump is stabbing him in the back.

So he penned one of his open letters to Trump. It’s pathetic.

Dear Mr. President,

We, the undersigned conservative leaders in the swing state of Ohio, voted for you and worked hard to bring others to the polls to elect you last November. We want to see you succeed in Making America Great Again! We appreciate much of what you have already done in the first few months of your administration.

However, we respectfully ask you to stand with our conservative heroes in the Freedom Caucus, along with other conservatives in the House and Senate. These patriots are working to keep the campaign promises that you–and they–made to us.

Please work with members of the Freedom Caucus, not against them, to ensure you are all successful in keeping your campaign promises and “draining the swamp.” Mr. President, we are praying for your success as you work to rebuild our nation.

Yes, Tom. That should do it. I’m sure Trump is reading your letter over and over again, undecided on what to do next. I bet he read your letter and is racked with guilt over his tweet.

Well, Trump did tweet later after Tom published his letter. Let’s see what he said.

Can you feel the panic in the Trump administration? Can you feel the change coming?

  1. Nick, don’t be such a spoilsport. Trump is working really hard to Make America Great (ask Bernie Daniel). And things really are. Every morning I get up, snap on the TV to “fake news”, read the headlines online, read his tweets, watch the ever growing sh*tstorm that is his presidency and say to myself, “Man, this is really great.” Don’t kill my buzz, man. Dosvidania.

    1. Hey thanks for thinking about me! Just today 265,000 jobs report; at least11 Obama era regulations have been tanked more to follow; should get Justice Gorsuch confirmed this week; AG Sessions is zeroing in on the corrupt members of the Obama administration (there are many of them!!); also working on penalties for sanctuary cities; tax reform is on the horizon; and it is looking like we’ll get another bite at the health care reform apple (if Paul Ryan does not screw it up again); oil is flowing in the Dakota Access pipeline; Keystone pipeline back on track; dozens of companies are bidding to build the wall; numbers of Mexicans trying to sneak in to our country is way DOWN — Lots of good Trump effects — don’t be so impatient jlterm. All in due time my boy all in due time.

      1. And before you start tooting about Trump’s look tough missle strike on Syria-

        “In 2013, when a sarin nerve gas attack left more than 1,400 dead outside Damascus, President Barack Obama went to Congress to get approval to strike. 183 Republicans were against bombing the country. Only 12 Republicans, including then House Speaker John Boehner(R-Ohio) sided with the president to launch a strike. Ultimately, Congress did not appear to approve the strike, with 243 Congressional members swaying towards voting “No.” Obama ultimately decided to postpone the vote.”

        And of course, there’s this one-

        Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump
        The President must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria-big mistake if he does not!
        7:02 PM – 30 Aug 2013

        Any Congressional approval from Trump?

        1. You mean any Congressional approval FOR Trump. I don’t know if it was the right thing to do or not — I’m conflicted — time will tell. But I believe that the POTUS (Trump or Obama) has the authority to order a strike like that under the “Commander-in -Chief” clause (Article II, Section 2). On the tweet, well just remember that “consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds…” Ralph Waldo Emerson

          1. You’re pretty damn consistent in your blind support of Trump regardless of the facts. Oh yeah, you have “alternative facts”.

        2. PS Do you honestly think Barack Obama really WANTED to enforce his foolishly drawn “bright red line” with an attack on Syria? Of course he did not!!! He went to Congress so as to have an excuse not to act against Assad.

          1. Yeah, I do. Just like you believe every pathetic line of sh*t that spews out of Trump’s mouth. All in good time, Bernie.

  2. Nick, instead of stooping to name calling against the Tea Party, why don’t open your eyes and realize the truth about the backstabbing. Since day one it has been nothing but drama for Trump. My wife and I were out there stumping with Tom and at least he worked at getting the leadership changed. Now that the R’s are in the majority, things better get done or eventually enough of the non-voters will be rallied so candidates like Matt Lynch will beat the establishment Republican types.

    1. Exactly Marco what could anyone on a supposedly “Ohiocentric conservative” blog find offensive about Mr, Zawistowski’s plea. Sad when a citizen taking the time to express his reasonable views (and in a polite manner) to his President is publicly rake over the coals for it?

  3. Just amazing! A #NeverTrumper complains about the ineffectiveness of someone who is actually out there working in the trenches for political change! Chutzpa!! Maybe someday somewhere someone will explain to me what those pious #NeverTrumpers accomplished aside from sitting on their hands, feeling superior, and micturating against the wind for a year and a half! LOL Oh the pomposity!

  4. Now, now Bernie and Marco. Play nice. You guys are going to need each other in the coming days.


    Bernie’s been using the Thesaurus again.

    1. Thesaurus? Ha ha you had to look that up jltrem?!!

      PS I think the decision to take Bannon off the security post was a good one. Susan Rice will probably be going to jail demonstrating that political members of the POTUS team (Obama or Trump) do not belong close to raw intelligence data — too easy to abuse.

      Nunes seems to be doing just fine — did I miss something? He really did have data proving Obama was spying….

        1. Sarcasm? Nice try! Ha ha ha Hey it looks like your hero Barack actually failed (miserably) to get the chemical weapons out of Syria. Pity because that was his only known foreign policy success story.
