There are 17 empty Republican slots for Cuyahoga County common pleas judgeships 17 civil rights-minded American attorneys could have sought

Unfilled Republican Party ballot slots and precinct seats in the 11th Congressional District create an opportunity for a new political power base of American loyal, civil rights protecting candidates in Cleveland and its surrounding suburbs

CLEVELAND, OH – I was stunned when I voted for myself for Congress in the 11th Congressional District and saw that 17 Republican attorneys had not filed for one of 17 court of common pleas judgeships for this year’s primary election.  It means 17 Democrats on the other side of the ballot will have no Republican opponent in November.  The filing deadline for Independent candidacies is May 2.

The salary of a court of common pleas judge is $155,000 anually.  A municipal court judge earns $146,000.  Terms are six years.  Democratic Cuyahoga County Prosecuting Attorney Michael O’Malley, again, has no Republican opponent.  I remember when former Judge Michael Elba Jackson won a court of common pleas judgeship with $4500 in campaign funds.

Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge Wanda Jones is a defender of the Constitution of the United States of America and of civil rights.

In a recent conversation with Cuyahoga County Republican Party chairwoman and attorney Lisa Sticken, she agreed that a slate of 17 Constitution and civil rights loving new judicial candidates could have easily campaigned as a judicial reform ticket to dispense constitutionally correct justice that holds all sides accountable.   She spoke of the challenge of getting candidates to seek elected office as a Republican.  Until I decided to campaign for Congress as a Republican in the 11th Congressional District the party did not have a candidate.  Sticken assigned volunteers to help me collect the 50 signatures I needed.  Candidates should see past the false media-manufactured image of local Republicans and see the opportunity.

Americans voting in Cuyahoga County want crime addressed without the unconstitutional policing, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct.  The idea of ankle bracelets before trials is offensive in a state where the presumption of innocence is a right mandated by a state general law found in Section 2938.08 of the Ohio Revised Code.

No homeowner feels good losing homes because of violated constitutional rights.  Artificially inflating the property taxes of poor homeowners because of nearby home sales, and foreclosing on them for not affording the significantly higher tax, should be viewed as a criminal act and banned.

The search of the privacy protected information stored behind your license plate number because you’re driving on a city street violates the 4th Amendment and federal National Crime Information Center laws.  An NCIC hit alone is not probable cause to arrest.

Managers of censorship minded free speech pretenders like the City Club of Cleveland are finding their organizations facing IRS complaints for intervening in political campaigns. Daniel Peter Moulthrop (above) is the president of the City Club who scheduled a forum about the direction of the Republican Party with the two founders of Republicans Against Trump.  He filed forums with the two Democratic candidates for Congress in the 11th Congressional District. Nothing for me as a legally qualified candidate or my fellow Republican opponent. I filed the complaint. The City Club of Cleveland’s anti-Republican bias is un-American and violates the tax code for a 501.c3 non-profit.

Grocery stores and neighborhood clinics were included uses in the $512 million American Rescue Plan Act money Congress sent to Cleveland in the 11th Congressional District.   Bailing out a Shaker Square developer that results in a $10,000 a month contract for ex-CMHA Director Terry Hamilton-Brown was not among the federal fund’s intended uses.   Congress intended to make property owners whole who were forced to house non-rent paying tenants.  Silence while Cleveland city council and Mayor Justin Morris Bibb squander the federal dollars Congress intended for the Americans who duty-exceeding politicians determined were “non-essential” is not an option.

Two of my former Democratic friends pulled Republican ballots and voted early for me in the 11th Congressional District for Congress.  They also voted for Judge Wanda Jones.  I am currently a member of the Republican Party’s executive committee, and I have asked Chairwoman Sticken for an appointment to the Central Committee.  I live in Cleveland’s Ward 1 so I intend to rebuild the Republican ward club in my ward and hold meetings.  It’s the same with my two American friends from Glenville and Fairfax.  They want central committee membership to rebuild the Republican ward clubs in their respective wards.

There are 332 precincts in Cleveland.  Each precinct should have an American who represents the Republican Party participating and engaging with voters on behalf of the party’s candidates.  In each of Cleveland’s 17 wards, 332 Republican central or precinct committee officials should be split up and meeting, learning and strategizing monthly with potential candidates who seek to fill upcoming public office vacancies. There is influence in numbers.

332 organized Republican central committee members with direct access to the Cleveland electorate can collect the signatures for an initiative, a referendum on an ordinance, a charter change amendment or a recall within a week.  That’s just in Cleveland.

In every 11th Congressional District municipal corporation precincts should be represented by Americans participating in more than one political party.  In every community Americans should be meeting with their local mayors, council members, judges, school boards members, library officers and board and commission appointees about their budgets, audits, spending and policy decisions.  That’s the power of working together on achieving specific political goals through a political party by conscientious Americans.

As an American Negro with pre-Civil War and American Revolution roots to our nation, I know the Republican Party has been the American rights and civil rights party.  With my involvement American rights and civil rights will be ward club discussions.  I was the same when I voted as an Independent or for some of the Democratic candidates I knew.  You bring your self, your consciousness, the issues you believe are important to a party or a campaign.

As a candidate for Congress I am deeply concerned about America’s national security in real time.  My two Democratic opponents are not.  They are the national security risks.  I served in the United States Air Force and in Thailand during the end of the Vietnam War.  I volunteered for the assignment.  I also understand weaponized media from a militaristic perspective having studied it in U.S. Department of Defense libraries.  Without a doubt foreign influences have weaponized American media against Americans.

It was clearly the Republican Cleveland and Cuyahoga county judges saying “no” to firing employees who chose not to be injected with untested and unproven “covid” vaccines.  Every order, mask mandate, business closing and disruption of official proceedings in the 11th Congressional District came from duty-exceeding Democratic Party elected and appointed public officials.

Though he is a Republican governor, Richard Michael DeWine’s quack Democratic ex-health director, Dr. Amy Stearns-Acton, is the appointed public official who started the civil rights violating lunacy.  She lied that 117,000 Ohioans were covid infected when she knew the actual number was 13.  Nine from Cuyahoga County.  Her Ohio Medical Board application shows Stearns-Acton as answering yes to being treated for a mental illness or drug addiction.

From an American perspective it is Republicans who protect our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms without the police state “guns off the streets” thinking coming from Democratic run cities in the 11th Congressional District.  That thinking has been wiped out by our state’s new permitless concealed carry laws.  The United States Department of Justice in its civil review of Cleveland policing warned mayors, councils, judges and prosecutors that guns should be viewed by police as no different than a cell phone.  The possession of a weapon is not probable cause.

It is Republicans who protect our unborn children in the wombs of their mothers.  It is Republican written laws that protect their rights as Americans outside the wombs.  It is Republican written laws that keeps them free from the indoctrination of abominations Democrats want governments forcing into our children and grandchildren’s consciousnesses.  It is Republicans who are writing laws to protect our elections from those who have no rights to access them.

There are Clevelanders like me who believe mayoral control of the Cleveland Municipal School District has been a failure.  We see the Republican Party as the avenue to get the school board voted on by the people and not appointed by the mayor.  The school board elected by the people should hire the superintendent like they do in every other municipal school district across Ohio.

There are 11th Congressional District residents like me who see Cuyahoga County “reform” as an abject failure.  We see the Republican Party as the avenue that will restore the same form of county government that existed before and in 87 out of 88 Ohio counties.  The commissioners along with the sheriff, prosecutor, auditor, treasurer, recorder, engineer, coroner and clerk of the court of common pleas should be elected by the people … again.

The content attorney Rudy Giuliani shared with the United States Department of Justice from Hunter Biden’s laptop computer is real. There’s also more that connects President Joseph Biden and other family members to his son’s unregistered foreign agent deals. Former President Donald James Trump never got his questions answered about the Biden’s by Ukraine nationalist President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. $46 billion to Ukraine in two months? Future payments of $7 billion a month. Insane!!! Americans are paying Biden’s extortion payments.

There are also some of us who would like a return to partisan elections in Cleveland between Republican and Democratic candidates for mayor, council, municipal court and clerk of court like it was until 1973.  The run-off system is not democracy when all the candidates are spewing the same un-American Democratic nonsense.  Clevelanders don’t even get to have a local election conversation about why public employee unions should be banned, again, from negotiating wages and benefits with public employers.  This council passes emergency resolutions creating “programs” to put free tampons in public restrooms.

If you have never voted in a primary election May 3, 2022 is the date to pull a Republican ballot to make your voting relationship with the political organization “official.”   We already know from performance how the 11th Congressional District’s Democratic Party candidates and office holders have created the most constitutionally violative political bureaucracies in the United States of America with no end in sight.  There are reasons the 11th Congressional District’s residents in Cleveland are the poorest and most constitutionally abused.

As a Republican candidate for Congress I will talk about how local Democratic elected and appointed public office holders are violating constitutional rights, misappropriating federal funds, educating foreign students over our own, giving our local government jobs to foreigners instead of Americans, have ruined our economy, inflated our cost of living and are leading us to a war with Russia and China.

The two new Republicans who voted for me want to join the Central Committee, rebuild Republican ward clubs in Glenville and Fairfax and host meetings.   Like me they agree that now is the time for Clevelanders and residents of the 11th Congressional District to act on the truth that there’s no benefit to remaining loyal to un-American Democratic candidates and political office holders.  For those of us who are the progeny of this nation’s enslaved indigenous and African peoples we are fed up with being cast aside by the Democrats for the Obama’s and fake “blacks” like Kamaladevi Harris.  She is not an American Negro.  Her mother was scheduled for a deportation hearing in 1968 for visa fraud before she left for Canada.

Eric Gordon has so miserably failed Cleveland school children that both he and the school board need to be replaced by a new mayor. It’s time for Cleveland voters to be given back the school board. The mayoral control experiment has failed.

Every ward and city had active Republican and Democratic clubs.  Because the best path to a political job in the “patronage” system was a recommendation from a Central Committee member, in some of our families the father may have been a Democrat while the mother was a Republican or vice versa.  In the American Negro community it was stupid to “hate” the other political party if both of them were feeding your families.  The American Negro voter then was not taken for granted.

I’m encouraging my friends and the people who know and trust me to pull a Republican ballot on May 3, 2022 and then reach out to me.  Patriotic Americans should not be held captive to this un-American one party rule bullshit going on in Cleveland with these Marxist Communist influenced Democrats.

This doesn’t mean I all of a sudden hate my Democratic relatives and friends.  It means I don’t see Democrats focusing on the issues that I as an American believe are important.  It’s time, locally, for another discussion and a different political direction.

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.
