An excellent three minute video on the Immigration ban was played.

Ten minutes of a recent broadcast of TEA Party Talk with Tom Z. was shared in which Tom spoke of the Supreme Court nominee and trouble with the Koch brothers, etc.

Denise Whalen shared details on some of the George Soros funded leftist protests groups that are attempting to emulate “tea party” successes.

Time did not permit us to discuss Ohio becoming a sanctuary state.  However, it does appear this legislation will NOT be gaining traction at this time.

The meeting was closed in prayer.
