Cuyahoga county Republicans overturn endorsement of Richard DeWine to back James Renacci for Ohio governor

CLEVELAND, OH – Dr. Amy Stearns-Acton cost Governor Richard Michael DeWine the endorsement of the Cuyahoga County Republican Party.  So did his business closing orders during the Covid 19 cold and flu season.  So did his and her decision that certain Ohioans and their professions were “essential” while others were not.  DeWine can sell himself as acting responsibly to save lives during a “pandemic” but the majority of Ohioans are not buying.

Governor Richard Michael DeWine is now paying a political price for following Dr. Amy Stearns-Acton’s social distancing lunacy.

Cuyahoga County Republicans chose to ignore DeWine’s incumbency when Strongsville Ward Leader Shannon Burns introduced a motion to overturn a committee endorsement recommendation of the current governor.  Independence councilman James Trakas chaired the endorsement committee.

When Cuyahoga Republican Chairwoman Lisa Stickens presided over the vote and delivered the tally; a majority of Cuyahoga County Republicans favored former United States Congressman James Renacci over DeWine.  Casual conversations around the packed room would have told DeWine before the vote that Republicans had not forgotten Stearns-Acton, their hysteria-driven lies or their Communist-like civil rights violations.

Nationally the CDC as well as Washington D.C’s health department was aware of how six of 13 Ohioans were exposed to coronavirus when Governor Richard Michael DeWine and Dr. Amy Stearns-Acton withheld the information from Ohioans and pushed the “panic” button with their lies.  13 Ohioans experiencing cold and flu symptoms is not a pandemic even if the number of infected doubles every six days.

13 Ohioans were known to have been infected with the “coronavirus” on March 11, 2020.  Nine of the 13 were from Cuyahoga County.  Six, according to Cuyahoga County health director Terry Allan, were students of Hawken Upper School.  Three of the 9 Cuyahoga County residents had just returned from a foreign trip to Israel.  The six students were attendees of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington, D.C. from March 6 through March 9.

AIPAC president Betsy Korn and board chairman Morton Fridman in an email to the organization’s 18,000 conference attendees alerted members they had been exposed to a coronavirus that traced to New York attorney Lawrence Garbuz.  In New York he was quarantined until he healed.

A socially-distanced casino doesn’t attract gamblers who park cars downtown, ride buses, eat at restaurants, drink liquor and attend events that all generate “tax dollars” to cover six figure government worker wages and their six figure double-dipping pensions. Downtown Cleveland was empty during Governor Richard Michael DeWine’s unconstitutional shut down.

Instead of reporting only the facts as she was authorized by the state’s unsuspended pandemic-mitigating laws found in Title 3707 of the Ohio Revised Code, Stearns-Acton estimated and DeWine acted on her estimation.  According to DeWine and his medical quack ex-state health director, the 117,000 “estimate” was supposed to “double every six days.”  According to the hysterical duo, our state’s hospitals were supposed to have been filling up at a rate of 10,000 patients a day.

Globally the World Health Organization reported 135,000 humans with cold and flu symptoms under the coronavirus label.  Based on DeWine and Stearns-Acton’s false 117,000 infected Ohioans estimate, 86 percent of the globally infected coronavirus sufferers were in our state.   Ohioans were stygmatized as being the coronavirus’ most prolific national carriers and spreaders.

DeWine either did not know or ignored Stearns-Acton’s “yes” answers to being treated for mental illness and drug addiction in her Ohio Medical Board application.  No section of Title 37, Chapter 3707 gave the Ohio director of health jurisdiction over non-infected Ohioans.  The governor’s sole statutory authority was over “adulterated products.”

Check out the “yes” answer to being treated for a mental illness. The rest of the pages that follow show the rest of Amy Stearns-Acton’s scant medical background.

Instead of obeying the Constitution of the United States of America, the Constitution of Ohio and the unsuspended general laws that limit the governor’s authority, DeWine called himself “following the science.”  Their “science” included social distancing, masks, closing businesses and locking up Americans in our homes and away from our loved ones and social networks with DeWine’s backing.  The majority of Ohio workers struggling to feed themselves and their families were deemed “non-essential.”

The vote against DeWine’s endorsement and for Renacci at the Cuyahoga County Republican Party’s central committee meeting came across as a “payback” for his constitutional abuse and his health director’s lies.  DeWine left before it was concluded.  Renacci stayed until its conclusion and thanked backers for their support.

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.
