Publius Huldah is a retired litigation attorney who now lives in Tennessee. Before getting a law degree, she got a degree in philosophy where she specialized in political philosophy and epistemology (theories of knowledge).

She now writes extensively on the U.S. Constitution, using the Federalist Papers to prove its original meaning and intent. Here blog can be found here. She shows how federal judges and politicians have ignored our Constitution and replaced it with their personal opinions and beliefs. She also shows how The People can, by learning our Founding Principles themselves, restore our Constitutional Republic.

Is state spending in Ohio really under control?  Is the Kasich economic turn around all that it’s claimed to be?  What’s really in the new state budget?  Were the pundits correct about the cost of Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion in Ohio?  Is Governor Kasich’s ‘tax reform’ real, or just more government ‘tax and spend’ in disguise?  Will Ohio become a ‘right to work’ state? These issues, and others, will have a direct and BIG impact on each of us and on our children as well.  Freedom and prosperity demand that enough citizens are informed about the actions of our elected leaders.  We hope you can be part of our call!

He has been with the organization for over 17 years. Newsweek has called Kibbe “one of the masterminds” of Tea Party politics, expertise which has led to frequent appearances on national news shows including FOX News, NBC, ABC News, CNN, MSNBC, FOX Business, PBS, The Blaze TV and CSPAN.

Brian Thomas is the host of the Morning Show on 55krc in Cincinnati.  His support of the Liberty Movement in the Tri-State is a key reason for its success.  Brian is a native of Cincinnati and received a degree from the University of Cincinnati in Political Science, continuing on to law school.  He practiced law in Chicago with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.  He returned to Cincinnati and took over the 55krc Morning Show from his dad Jerry Thomas in 2007.  He is on the air weekdays from 5am-9am.

Ben Swann is a 2-time Emmy award winning, 3-time Edward R. Murrow award winning journalist.

Hamilton County Commissioner Chris Monzel has been leading the charge for fiscal responsibility and efficient County government. During his term he has presented a series of economic challenges as well as opportunities that required skilled leadership from the Commission. Chris has been instrumental in cutting red tape for business expansion and relocation in the county as well as holding a tight line on department budgets.

This will be an amazing evening of information and inspiration. Come support the Cincinnati Tea Party and stand for freedom.
