Amy Acton answered “yes” to being treated for mental illness to Ohio’s medical board

CLEVELAND, OH – Editorial click bait artists perpetrated an evil on the U.S. by operating as Dr. Amy Stearns-Acton’s press agent instead of as journalists for not investigating her background and examining the unconstitutional and unlawful strategies she deployed to mitigate Ohio’s fake pandemic. 

117,000 Ohioans were not CoVid 19 infected on March 12, 2020.  There were only 13 known infected Ohioans.  Three were Russian American Jews who returned to the state from Israel.  Another six were Russian American Jewish students of Hawken Upper School who attended a conference of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee in Washington, D.C. on March 6th.  All nine were residents of Cuyahoga County.  The identities of the other four among the 13 CoVid 19-infected Ohioans are not known to me at this time to also be Russian American Jews.

Stearns-Acton is the quack who committed numerous acts of dereliction of duty as Governor Richard “Little Dick” Michael DeWine’s Ohio Director of Health.  Published reports announce Stearns-ACton’s return to the Columbus Foundation where Little Dick found the incompetent job hopper.  The Columbus Foundation is like the Cleveland Foundation.  It’s a non-profit that gathers money from donors looking for tax shelters; and creates jobs for people with educations to study and call themselves contributing to the live’s of the poor for something to do. Foundations often create jobs for the educated but defective relatives and associates of the wealthy.

Stearns-Acton holds a license as a medical doctor, but she wasn’t treating patients when DeWine appointed her.  Like she did before leaving the non-profit to join DeWine, the homeless-raised “doctor” will manage a Columbus Foundation grant instead of a patient’s health care. She’ll be spreading “kind words” instead of a patient’s ears, nose and throat like she’s done ever sense wasting the taxpayer’s money to become educated as a physician who doesn’t care for people.

An examination of the professional background and education of DeWine’s ex-health director explains her lack of statutory knowledge about the state’s health laws; and the 26 that instructed Stearns-Acton on how to mitigate a pandemic and not to lie.  The review also explains why she didn’t know respirators would kill Ohioans who have a 99 percent annual rate of recovering from the common cold and a bad flu.

When the Columbus Foundation hired Stearns-Acton and Matthew Martin to serve as officers in the Community Research and Grants Management department, the 2017 news release announcing their presence claimed they brought extensive community experience and research backgrounds that supported the Foundation’s grantmaking and initiatives.  The two were going to emphasize areas of public health and neighborhood revitalization.  So right before she joined DeWine the state’s top health official had not been a 30-year practicing physician.

What the Columbus Foundation described as an extensive career was one that included “30 years of experience in teaching and data analysis, academic and nonprofit administration, government and community service, medical practice, consulting as well as healthcare policy and advocacy.  Stearns-Acton’s “advocacy” included promoting abortion in association with the Columbus Foundation’s “neighborhood revitalization” efforts.

Reading further the places associated with the work history she’s alleged to have compiled are  identified in a Columbus Foundation biography.

“Assistant Professor-Practice at the Ohio State University College of Public Health, a Division of Health Services, Management, and Policy, since 2011. A licensed physician in Preventive Medicine and Public Health, she brings over 30 years of experience in teaching and data analysis, academic and nonprofit administration, government and community service, medical practice, consulting, as well as healthcare policy and advocacy. Previously, she served as Visiting Faculty Professor at the Center for Injury Research and Policy at the Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Adjunct Professor at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and Public Health, and Director of Project L.O.V.E. (Love Our Kids, Vaccinate Early).”

In a June 3, 2020 investigation of Stearns-Acton’s background, writer Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue obtained a copy of her 1994 Ohio Medical Board application.  Sullenger also interviewed Stearns-Acton’s mother, licensed social worker Donna Arthur.  Arthur shredded her lying child’s story about their life of homelessness because of her mental illness, drug abuse and mental abuse in Youngstown and Mahoning County.

USA Today reporter Darrel Rowland sought to discredit Sullenger’s reporting about Stearns-Acton by referencing a conviction for trying to bomb an abortion clinic. But Sullenger’s background is irrelevant as her claims are supported by public records and words from the mouth of Stearns-Acton’s mother.  None of the mainstream reporters spreading Stearns-Acton’s profitable “click bait” lies looked past the money they were earning to share the truth about her to their readers.

Arthur told Sullenger they moved six times; not 18. None to a Mahoning County park during the winter.  Stearns-Acton’s mother attended Youngstown State University to study social work while she raised her daughter and son.  It was her abusive father’s punches that drove her away from him.

“Amy’s” 1994 application to Ohio’s medical board includes three names.  The ex-Ohio health director’s full name was supposed to be “Amy Leigh Beech.”  The Ohio Medical Board’s application allowed her to choose the name she wanted on her license.  She chose Amy Stearns Beech and made “Stearns” her middle name.  Her “maiden” name was identified as Amy Leigh Stearns.  She’s been married twice and is now Amy Stearns-Acton.

In order to obtain a medical license Stearns-Acton was required to complete one year of medical residency in a hospital.  The handwritten notes on her application explains her desire to practice pediatric medicine.

Stearns-Acton began her residency at Albert Einstein’s College of Medicine on a date in July 1990.  She did two months of residency until a date in September 1990 and then moved to Columbus.  Her resume identifies the moving time as between September and December of 1990.

The application shows a residency start date of December 1990 and an ending date of June 1991 for another seven months of residency credits at Children’s Hospital in Columbus.  For the next 18 months Stearns-Acton’s application shows her being on voluntary and unpaid maternity leave.  So much for studying medicine.

She returns to Children’s Hospital to complete her pediatric residency in January 1993 through June 1993 for an additional five months of credit.  By June 1993 she’s back on maternity leave.  What she doesn’t practice, however, is medicine.

The application shows Stearns-Acton performing part-time research for 10 hours a week as she extended maternity leave for the birth of her second child.  The application shows “no salaried employment presently” in 1993.

Stearns-Acton, who now appears to be devoted to motherhood and not medicine, explains she’ll continue her CME or continuing medical education when she obtains her license and will eventually complete her pediatrics residency “when son is a little older.”

Physician John Mahan in Columbus signed off on Stearns-Acton’s character reference as a medical instructor.  He rated her medical knowledge, relationship with patients and command of English as “excellent.”  Her ability to work well with peers and medical staff was rated as “good.”

Stearns-Acton’s didn’t fare so well in New York.  In the same application is a letter from her medical instructor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center.  Russian American Dr. Steven P. Shelov.  He did not view her in the same light as Dr. Mahan.

Her medical knowledge was rated as “insufficient.”  Her relationship with patients simply “good.”  He agreed with Mahan that her ability to work with peers aned medical staff was only “good.   Like Mahan he thought she had a command of English.  He wrote that he only supervised her for four months because she “left the program.”  It gets worse.

Under the “Additional Information” section of the medical board application are 22 questions.  Stearns-Acton answered “yes” once.

“Have you ever been treated but not hospitalized for emotional or mental illness, drug addiction or abuse, or an alcohol problem?  If yes you must have your treating physician(s) submit a letter directly to the Board on your behalf summarizing dates of treatment, etc.”

This was the “red flag” in DeWine’s face for information easily-accessible to him  that he either failed to seek or ignored.  Sullenger wrote that the medical board refused to turnover the correspondence from her treating physicians that summarized the dates of treatment and why when Stearns-Acton was their boss .  DeWine as governor would have no obstacle to the information.  Neither would members of Ohio’s general assembly had DeWine investigated and disclosed it before he appointed her.

The red flag would have grown even stronger had DeWine compared Stearns-Acton’s one “yes” answer to a series of questions she answered “no” to later in the application.

“Have you been addicted to or dependent upon alcohol or any chemical subtance; or been treated for or been diagnosed as suffering from, drug or alcohol dependency or abuse?”

The “No” answer to the “addicted” to drugs or alcohol question paints a different portrait of her “Yes” answer to the question of being “treated but not hospitalized” for emotion or mental illness, drug addiction or abuse and an alcohol problem.  It raises the thought that Stearns-Acton may have been treated for “emotional or mental illness instead of drug and alcohol addiction. It could also mean she just flat out lied.  Without the treatment letter no reporter from a mainstream news organization sought, the severity of her mental, drug or alcohol problem was not known to Ohioans who trusted this liar’s life, freedom and economy-robbing words.

Donna Arthur was found by Operation Rescue and interviewed by writer Cheryl Sullenger. Real name Amy Beech’s mother said her daughter is a liar whose lies caused her and other family members a lot of harm.

Another red flag for DeWine should have been the issue of her incomplete pediatric residency; which Stearns-Acton’s 1994 application based on her own words claimed she would complete when her son was older.  Below is how the Columbus Foundation described her background in contrast to the information on Stearns-Acton’s Ohio Medical Board application.

“She attended medical school at Northeastern Ohio University College of Medicine; completed her internship and residency training in pediatrics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York City, and Children’s Hospital/OSU; and a residency in preventive medicine at The Ohio State University. She holds a master’s degree in Public Health from The Ohio State University.”

The extra residency in preventive medicine at the Ohio State University” on the Columbus Foundation’s website is not anywhere on Stearns-Acton’s Ohio Medical board application.

When asked if she’d breen practing medicine for 5 years immediately preceding the date of her application, Stearns-Acton answered  “during residency years.”  Not years.  Maybe … one year.  12 months spread out over 4 years.  The residency dates on Stearns-Acton’s medical board application identify only the year and month.  Starting a residency on September 30th and ending it on December 1st would not give Stearns-Acton 90 days of learning.  It would give her 62 less weekends and holidays.

Columbus Foundation CEO Douglas Kridler has raised money for a made-up job for Dr. Amy Stearns-Acton to be the director of Kind Columbus. LOL.

To give her non-existent medical background the “too busy to practice medicine” boost, Stearns-Acton was described as a “philanthropist.”  Men who marry their “model” mistresses let them open clothing stores to call themselves business women; and make donations in their wives names to the politicians and causes they like to call themselves “philanthropists.”  So Stearns-Acton’s “philanthropic” background is described as thus:

“Dr. Acton’s philanthropic activities have included involvement on numerous boards and committees, including ENCompass (Empowering Neighborhoods of Columbus), OSU/PACT Health Sciences Academy, Jewish Community Center (JCC), Beth Tikvah Synagogue, Bexley City School Climate Advisory Committee, and United Way Health Vision Council.”

Lying is a trait associated with children raised homeless once they become adults, according to a report on the National Center for Biologicial Information’s website I shared in a previous story about Stearns-Acton.  A doctor who can’t help but to stretch facts like Stearns-Acton did when the known number of CoVid 19 infected Ohioans was 13, and she claimed it was actually 117,000, would find herself facing criminal charges and malpractice claims for the harm her lying caused patients. 

So instead of trusting herself with patients, Stearns-Acton appears to have guided herself or been guided by someone into non-profit grants management where she could do no patient any harm. As Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw once said:  “Those who can … do..  Those who can’t … teach.”  

Right now the Columbus Foundation has created another non-doctor’s job for Stearns-Acton.  She’ll be the director of Kind Columbus beginning September 1st.  LMFAO.  I’m serious. 

According to the Columbus Foundation’s CEO, Douglas Kridler, she’s going “to spread words and actions of kindness as a defining value of our region.”  I’m about to shit.  I’m sure she’ll get six figures for this stupid “rich people” bullshit after fucking up Ohio’s economy and permanently scarring lives.  But wait?  Wasn’t DeWine supposed to keep her as a big picture advisor?

Instead of a made-up job, Stearns-Acton and DeWine both deserve criminal prosecution for the way each operated in violation of Ohio’s 26 pandemic mitigating laws found in Title 37 of the state’s revised code.  They should be criminally prosecuted for the violations of state laws and even the thought of suspending U.S. Constitutional rights no human can alter … alone.

Stearns-Acton’s non-existent medical background clearly demonstrates she had no knowledge whatsoever to even be talking to Ohioans during the 2019-2020 cold and flu season she panicked over.  Jail, not a new job, is what she deserves; and it doesn’t matter if she might be sick.  Ohio has facilities for the mentally ill … too.

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.
