President Donald Trump's U.S. Attorney General, William Barr, called the state shutdowns the greatest threat to civil liberties since slavery.

DeWine, Jackson’s unconstitutional “orders” are in the Trump USDOJ’s target crosshairs

CLEVELAND, OH – On April 27, 2020, U.S. Attorney General William Barr forwarded a letter to the nation’s US Attorneys on behalf of President Donald Trump.  In his correspondence Barr explained how he was coordinating a national response to the law and civil rights violating “orders” coming from election-cancelling and economy-closing governors, mayors and county executives like Richard Michael DeWine, Frank Jackson and Armond Budish in Cuyahoga County. 

“In prior Memoranda, I directed our prosecutors to prioritize cases against those seeking to illicitly profit from the pandemic, either by hoarding scarce medical resources to sell them for extortionate prices, or by defrauding people who are already in dire circumstances due to the severe problems the pandemic has caused. We have pursued those efforts vigorously and will continue to do so. Now, I am directing each of our United States Attorneys to also be on the lookout for state and local directives that could be violating the constitutional rights and civil liberties of individual citizens.”

According to Barr’s response for the Trump administration, the orders have imposed unlawful restrictions on the constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms of Americans our poorly-educated politicians think they have the authority to “direct” like those in nations led by dictators.  Barr has further directed the U.S. Department of Justice’s civil rights division to accept complaints from Americans who have been faced with widespread racial, religious and medical discrimination in the aftermath of the rights violating decisions being made by anarchist governors, mayors and county officials. 

Governor Richard Michael DeWine exceeded the authority of the governor’s office when he cancelled Ohio’s March 17, 2020 federal primary election.

A review of the statements of interest the Trump administration has filed backing complaints against two governors reveals the mindset of federal prosecutors who have deep experience prosecuting local elected officials for exceeding the authority of the public offices they hold.  Barr informed U.S. Attorneys like Justin Herdman in the Northern District of Ohio that he was assigning U.S. Attorneys Eric Dreiband and Matthew Schneider to protect the constitutional rights of Americans.

Thus far, through his surrogates, Barr on behalf of the Trump administration has filed statements of interest supporting claims against Hawaii Governor and Okinawan American David Yukata Ige; and Illinois Governor and Russian American Jew Jay Pritzker.  Each statement of interest has affirmed that their “orders” were not authorized by any state law; and that the duties of the office of governor they held were exceeded when they issued them. 

Democratic and Republican Governors who descended from recent immigrants, some illegal, and who are not Protestant Christians, appear to be the most fascistly-dismissive of the U.S. Constitution and the rights of American citizens.  Letters from federal prosecutors to these officials have affirmed that state laws give health departments authority only over citizens who are known to be infected and ill.  Those same limits on authority appear in the 26 pandemic-mitigating laws found in Title 37 of the Ohio Revised Code.  R.C. 3707.08 gave quack ex-Ohio health director Dr. Amy Stearns-Acton, a Russian American Jew, the duty to ensure that the infected were quarantined to homes that were placarded as an alert to others.

Russian “American” Governor of Illinois Jay Pritzker ‘s Soviet style leadership brought a complaint against him by American State Senator Darren Bailey that reminded him he wasn’t in Russia as he played “follow the fear-mongering dummy” behind Ohio Governor Richard Michael DeWine.

DeWine released privacy-protected health information to first responders.  There is no exception in the Health Insurance Portability and  Accountability Act (HIPAA) that authorized DeWine to share any Ohioan’s health information with police officers, firefighters and EMS paramedics during a pandemic. This recklessly lying and fear-mongering fool’s acts were all over the rights violating map as no law authorized him to make any CoVid 19-infected Ohioan’s privacy-protected health information a public record.

In each state where a governor is declaring emergencies and led a state-closing response to a bad flu season, the revised codes do not place publicity-driven governors, mayors and county executives in charge of anything other than appointing the health director.  New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio, an Italian American, was warned in writing by Schneider he could not issue an order that restricted attendance at churches when the federal lawyer’s fellow Russian American Jews complained.

The federal challenges Barr’s USDOJ appears to be supporting are those where the plaintiff has studied consitutions, federal laws, the state’s revised code, examined the duties of the health department and governor during a pandemic; and cited the specific statutory duties of a public office that were disobeyed.  It’s the same citation-specific approach federal prosecutors adopt in public corruption investigations and prosecutions; and why convicted elected officials are described as “violating their oaths of office” in federal pleadings that detail each law they chose not to obey or enforce.

David Ige is the first governor of Okinawan descent to lead a U.S. state. Okinawa and China are bad blood neighbors and travel between the nations is restricted. Ige is being reminded by the USDOJ that type of thinking violates Article 1, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution as he tried to force Americans from outside the state to self-quarantine for 14-days before moving around inside it. Foreign ideas don’t work in U.S. government controlled by this nation’s constitution and laws.

Illinois State Rep. Darren Bailey used the “exceeded the authority of an office” claim in his USDOJ-backed declaratory judgement and restraining order challenging Russian “American” Pritzker’s state closing “orders.”  Federal prosecutors ridiculed Pritzker’s attempt to move Bailey’s claim to federal court as an admission that the case against him in state court was solid and his duty-exceeding orders were illegal. 

The Trump administration wrote and filed the following in explaining how this child of illegal Russian immigrants, who ratlined to the U.S. with fake credentials, failed to cite a single federal law that supported why a U.S. District Court and not a state court should hear Bailey’s claim against his orders.

“Plaintiff has set forth a strong case that the Orders exceed the authority granted to the Governor by the Illinois legislature. The United States also agrees with the Governor’s apparent recognition that, although violations of state law do not ordinarily amount to a federal due process violation, state actions that are both wholly unauthorized by state law and impose broad and intrusive restrictions on individual liberties may raise federal due process concerns. But those federal concerns cannot transform a complaint that presses only state-law claims into a complaint over which this Court has jurisdiction.”

The claim against Hawaii Governor Ige is federal as the USDOJ’s statement of interest agrees that his orders demanding out-of-state travelers self-quarantine for 14-days violated Article IV and Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution. 

“The citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states.  A person charged in any state with treason, felony, or other crime, who shall flee from justice, and be found in another state, shall on demand of the executive authority of the state from which he fled, be delivered up, to be removed to the state having jurisdiction of the crime.  No person held to service or labor in one state, under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service or labor, but shall be delivered up on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due.”

In the Trump administration’s challenge to Ige’s orders, USDOJ lawyers demonstrated how the Okinawan immigrant governor’s decision to discriminate against non-Hawaii residents traveling into the state was unconstitutional.

Here, Hawaii likely has transgressed the Constitution’s limits by effectively discriminating between Hawaii residents and out-of-state residents with respect to Case 1:20-cv-00273-JAO-WRP Document 26 Filed 06/23/20 Page 5 of 21 PageID #: 6092 “the Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.” U.S. Const., art. IV, § 2. Persons who travel into Hawaii must self-quarantine for 14 days before they can engage in trade, rent a vehicle, use ride-sharing services, or freely enjoy more than one of their own properties. By contrast, those residing in the State who have not recently ventured outside Hawaii generally face no such impediment to enjoying the very same freedoms. That is true regardless of whether the Hawaii resident has taken precautions or whether the out-of-stater hails from an area relatively unscathed by the pandemic (such as Montana or Alaska) or a hotspot (such as New York City). And this self-quarantine requirement has caused real harm to Hawaii’s tourist industry, at a time when Americans most need their States to support efforts to reopen businesses in a manner consistent with public health.

Although Hawaii may adopt reasonable measures to protect its residents from the COVID-19 pandemic, it cannot impose measures that “in practical operation” discriminate against out-of-state visitors, unless the measures are substantially related to ensuring public safety. Chalker v. Birmingham & Nw. R.R. Co., 249 U.S. 522, 527 (1919); see Hillside Dairy Inc. v. Lyons, 539 U.S. 59, 67 (2003). Hawaii’s sweeping self-quarantine mandate appears to be insufficiently tailored to ensuring public safety. As such, it cannot be enforced under Article IV’s Privileges and Immunities Clause.

This section of the U.S. Constitution is one of the reasons Ohio was identified in the Articles of the Confederation when the Southern states seceded from the Union that led to the Civil War.  Ohio was a “free” for American Negroes state from its 1801 inception; and had refused to deliver runaway enslaved Negroes as property to southern law enforcement officers and bondsmen even if they’d committed murder. 

There is absolutely no Ohio law that gave Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson to declare a civil emergency during a pandemic and issue “orders” that closed businesses and required U.S. citizens to wear masks.

Knowing anything about Article IV, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution is far beyond the first three words of the governing autnority Cleveland Councilman Blaine Griffin was administered an oath of office to obey; but could not recite to me during a conversation about his antitrust and commerce-restricting attack on dollar stores.  “We the people …” This lack of knowledge explains Griffin’s vote, along with those of his 16 Cleveland council colleagues, on a mask ordinance Title 37 gave them no authority to enact. 

Griffin, as an American Negro with pre-Civil War roots to the nation, should be extremely knowledgeable of American governing documents and laws as an elected official.  His complete lack of constitutional knowledge underscores the even greater challenge for politicians who are children and grandchildren of immigrants like DeWine, Ige and Pritzker.

Their ancestors, some illegal, have no pre-Civil War roots to this nation; and a respect for American history, culture and laws is not taught in immigrant homes.  Abraham Lincoln means nothing to Pritzker, Ige, DeWine or Kelly.  Neither does the American Revolution. Their ancestors did not die to liberate the 13 original colonies from British tyranny or to end slavery. 

U.S. Attorneys investigating the orders of governors, mayors, county executives and councils are learning the laws their acts violated when they sought to exercise control over healthy instead of the influenza-infected residents of their states. It’s in examining each state’s constitutions and laws that they’re identifying the specific duties each governor, mayor, county executive and council violated.

Many immigrant-descended politicians remain loyal to their ancestral homes.  Not to the USA … exclusively.  They can’t seem to eliminate the fascist thinking they claim caused their ancestors to flee Eastern Europe or to escape the grip of China’s communism.  The disregard for the U.S. Constitution and their state and nation’s laws in their orders is evidence they’re infiltrating their un-American, Communist, Fascist and Hitler-like ancestral politics and thinking to this nation’s shores. Illinois’ last Eastern European to serve as governor, Rob Blagojevich whose family is allegedly from Yugoslavia, ended up prosecuted and jailed for his violation of this nation’s laws and the duties of the public office he held.

Russian American Jew Stearns-Acton publicly offered that Ohioans should be issued immune certificates to show when questioned.  It’s similar to the identifications Adolf Hitler required Russian-German Jews in his country to carry.  It is interesting how for others Russian “American” Jews like Stearns-Acton can easily recommend the same policies that led to the extermination of Russian Jews in Germany and Russia’s Poland.

Barr has not closed the door on prosecuting these constitutionally-rogue governors, mayors and county officials as their un-American orders have led to criminal violations of rights and laws that are now being discovered and reviewed during “civil” trial proceedings.  Former Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) director Claire Freeman made the mistake of filing a civil claim against the board for dismissing her in 2001. 

Not a single health official in any state sought to isolate hospital workers who were from and traveling back and forth to the Middle East, and who were bringing the camel to human Middle East Respiratory Syndrome also known as CoVid 19 to the U.S. and around Americans they were infecting with that deadly virus who had never left their neighborhoods.

Former CMHA chairman Robert C. Townsend, II told this writer how the U.S. Attorney was alerted by the judge of the criminal offenses he’d seen in the pleadings. An FBI agent was assigned to observe the trial and take notes.  The USDOJ used Freeman and her witnesses testimony about the $340,000 a year compensation package she received from the board to indict her for misusing federal funds.

Congress enacted 18 U.S. C. 4, Misprision of felony, as a law that makes it a requirement for anyone with knowledge of felony offenses to report them.  Judges seeing unreported and unprosecuted felony crimes in pleadings have no other choice but to forward the evidence to a prosecutor..

Former Tennesse state Judge Richard Baumgarten was convicted in 2014 for violating 18 U.S.C. 4 when he learned a defendant was conspiring to distribute narcotics.  Failure to report felonies, as Baumgarten learned less than six years ago, carries a risk of jail time for every judge.

It’s the nuances of all the laws politicians refuse to learn and master that generates this level of federal attention for elected officials joining the “Who wants to be a dictator?” bandwagon.  They forget how Libyan dictator Mummar Ghadaffi died after a rifle bayonet was shoved up his azz.  Liberia’s dictator, Samuel Doe, was dragged through the streets and executed on national television. Hitler committed suicide in a bunker with the cousin he was fucking, Eva Braun.  

Akron councilwoman Tara Samples campaigned as Russia Today correspondent Dennis Kucinich’s running mate for Ohio governor; and then backed Communist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders for president. In Akron the Bolshevik-backing councilwoman took a cue from her Commie pals and suported an ordinance requiring masks to be worn in public during the state’s fake pandemic. 10,000 Ohioans a day will never fill this state’s hospitals during even the worst flu season.

DeWine’s single duty in his “official capacity” as governor in connection with the pandemic was to ensure that Stearns-Acton understood and obeyed Title 37 of Ohio’s revised code.  Not fall in love with and fawn all over his homeless raised doctor whose job when he found her was connected to a grant for a research project paid for by the Columbus Foundation.  The governor, in his official capacity, had authority over “adulterated products” like the Ohioan-killing fentanyl he doesn’t prevent from entering the state.

The governor had no legal authority under any Ohio law to spread her lie that 117,000 Ohioans were CoVid 19 infected when the duty of the office she held authorized the state’s health director only to report that the true number was 13.  The governor of Ohio could not use a lying 117,000 infected estimate as the basis for cancelling a federal election on March 17th.

Jackson and Cleveland city council were given no duties to perform in Title 37 of Ohio’s Revised Code by the state’s general assembly; making all their unconstitutional orders and mask ordinances unlawful, void and unenforceable. The same with Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan and that city’s council.  Health laws are “general” and not subject to “home rule.”  

No restaurant or bar can be forced to close or reduce its permitted occupancy without a change in the unsuspended general laws that opened them and through “due process.” Merchants and their clerks can’t be assigned mask and social distancing enforcement duties that subjects citizens of this nation with “privileges and immunities” connected to commerce with restraints on their freedom to buy and sell goods that sustains their lives. 

FAIR USE PHOTO FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES:  This is how the late Liberian dictator Samuel Doe spent his last moments before being executed on a video shown on national television. Dictatorial governors, mayors and county executives across the nation were warned by armed American protestors that there is no tolerance here for the type of fascist and Communist thinking many are bringing here from Eastern Europe and China. President Woodrow Wilson warned anarchists to leave the shit they left in Europe in Europe before he deported 240 Russians who didn’t have the good sense to assimilate back to Russia in 1919.

People can’t be forced to wear masks.  Stores can’t refuse to serve customers who don’t wear them based on the unlawfully voided orders and ordinances coming from duty-exceeding elected and appointed public officials voters should recall or reject in the next elections.  Refusing service to a person who,, for health privacy reasons, refuses to wear a mask is discrimination.  In none of Ohio’s 26 pandemic mitigating laws do the words “masks” and “social distancing” exist.  

One of the duties Trump’s U.S. Attorney General, Barr, has assigned to Dreiband is to protect the individual civil rights of citizens with medical disabilities who were harmed because of the unlawful orders from constitutionally-rogue governors. There’s also the racial, religious and national origin element to federal laws these orders led to violating as soon as American Negroes were identified as being disprortionately impacted by a camel-to-human virus people from the Middle East and China spread to our communities and in the hospitals where they’re allowed to work.

Does anyone want to be a dictator in a nation of 300 million armed citizens with only 400,000 law enforcement officers … combined? Mummar Ghaddafi learned the hard way about being a dictator and all that government overthrowing bullshit. The Constitution of the United States of America and this nation’s laws are “inviolate” and remain unsuspended. No government official “orders” an American to do anything.

In his statement, Dreiband made the following pledge on behalf of the Trump administration.

As the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the Department will
remain vigilant in enforcing civil rights laws. We must ensure that fear and prejudice do not
limit access to housing, schools, benefits, services, jobs, and information, among other things, on account of race, sex, religion, national origin, disability, or other protected classes. Further,
access to accurate emergency and health information is critical to providing all people with the
ability to make informed decisions and protect themselves, their families, and the community at
large.It is important that we all work together to address unlawful discrimination, including violent acts or threats based upon protected classes. As in all emergencies, the COVID-19 outbreak has affected people of many different races, religions, and ethnicities, as
well as those with disabilities. Unlawful discrimination may also discourage people from
coming forward to seek treatment or information. Laws prohibiting unlawful discriminatory
behavior must and will be vigorously enforced.

If you believe you are a victim of discrimination based on race, sex, religion,
national origin, disability, or other protected classes, you can find information about how
to file a complaint at and Complaints of employment discrimination can be filed with
the EEOC at You can also contact the Civil
Rights Division at toll-free 855-856-1247 or 202-514-3827.

Eric Jonathan Brewer

Cleveland's most influential journalist and East Cleveland's most successful mayor is an East Saint Louis, Illinois native whose father led the city's petition drive in 1969 to elect the first black mayor in 1971. Eric is an old-school investigative reporter whose 40-year body of editorial work has been demonstrably effective. No local journalist is feared or respected more.

Trained in newspaper publishing by the legendary Call & Post Publisher William Otis Walker in 1978 when it was the nation's 5th largest Black-owned publication, Eric has published and edited 13 local, regional and statewide publications across Ohio. Adding to his publishing and reporting resume is Eric's career in government. Eric served as the city's highest paid part-time Special Assistant to ex-Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White. He served as Chief of Staff to ex-East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Onunwor; and Chief of Communications to the late George James in his capacity as the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority's first Black executive director. Eric was appointed to serve as a member of the state's Financial Planning & Supervision Commission to guide the East Cleveland school district out of fiscal emergency and $20 million deficit. Former U.S. HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson told Eric in his D.C. office he was the only mayor in the nation simultaneously-managing a municipal block grant program. Eric wrote the city's $2.2 million Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant application. A HUD Inspector General audit of his management of the block grant program resulted in "zero" audit findings.

As a newspaper publisher, Eric has used his insider's detailed knowledge of government and his publications to lead the FBI and state prosecutors to investigations that resulted in criminal prosecutions of well-known elected officials in Ohio; and have helped realign Cleveland's political landscape with the defeat of candidates and issues he's exposed. Eric's stories led to the indictments of the late Governor George Voinovich's brother, Paul Voinovich of the V Group, and four associates. He asked the FBI to investigate the mayor he'd served as chief of staff for public corruption; and testified in three federal trials for the prosecution. He forced former Cuyahoga County Coroner Dr. Elizabeth Balraj to admit her investigations of police killings were fraudulent; and to issue notices to local police that her investigators would control police killing investigations. Eric's current work has resulted in Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo accepting the criminal complaint he guided an activist to file against 24 civil rights-violating police officers in the city he once led for operating without valid peace officer credentials. USA Today reporters picked up on Eric's police credentials reporting from his social media page and made it national.

Eric is the author of of his first book, "Fight Police License Plate Spying," which examines the FBI and local police misuse of the National Crime Information Center criminal records history database. An accomplished trumpet player and singer whose friendship with Duke Fakir of the Four Tops resulted in his singing the show's closing song, "Can't Help Myself": Curtis Sliwa of New York's Guardian Angels counts Eric among his founding chapter leaders from the early 1980's role as an Ohio organizer of over 300 volunteer crime fighters in Cleveland, Columbus and Youngstown, Ohio. For his work as a young man Eric was recognized by Cleveland's Urban League as it's 1983 Young Man of the Year.

Known in Cleveland for his encyclopedic knowledge of government and history, and intimately-connected with the region's players, every local major media outlet in Cleveland has picked up on one of Eric's stories since 1979. There is no mainstream newspaper, television or radio outlet in Cleveland that does not include an interview with Eric Jonathan Brewer in its archives over the past 40 years.
