(LFC Comments: Thanks to Tom Z. for this article. Will history judge Governor DeWine as someone that saved or destroyed Ohio? Unfortunately, when I listen to Govenor DeWine and his medical director, Dr. Amy Acton, give their “Win one for the Gipper” speeches, meant to instill confidence and salvage something from this dreadful ordeal, they fail to inspire me . Translation: I have no confidence in their decision making capabilities. This may be DeWine’s “Waterloo” moment. He will retire with a nice pension, but we will all have paid a terrible price.

- So, Governor, what IS the mortality rate from Coronavirus in Ohio?
- We notice that you and your “Health Director,” who NEVER seems to “have the data on that” for anything, NEVER tell people JUST HOW DEADLY it is, Governor!
- FACT: The Marion Prison Covid-19 Outbreak shows that the virus IS very contagious with 2,011 inmates (80%) out of 2,500 getting the virus with nearly zero mitigation efforts. But, only 106 (5%) even showed symptoms and then only two (.01%) DIED!
- THE MORTALITY RATE IN OHIO IS AT MOST .02% MEANING THAT 99.98% WHO GET THE DISEASE WILL NOT DIE AND 90% WILL NOT EVEN GET SICK!
- But Acton and DeWine have intentionally and continuously conflated “contageous” with “DEADLY” in a very successful effort to scare citizens to death with lies.
- The FACT is that we NEVER had ANY significant spike in cases in Ohio from coronavirus that came close to “overwhelming” our hospitals. They LIED!
- Why don’t you release a chart today, Governor, that shows the daily hospitalizations for Covid-19 compared to the daily bed occupancy in Ohio for ALL those days?
- Governor DeWine has NOT ONE SHRED OF ACTUAL MEDICAL EVIDENCE that there is ANY real possibility of any kind of new medical emergency from opening businesses – particularly if we focus on nursing homes and protecting the elderly and other vulnerable citizens.
- Again, DeWine and Acton are intentionally conflating “getting the coronavirus” with serious illness and even death. The FACTS prove that 90% of employees who “get” the coronavirus will show ZERO symptoms – masks or no masks – and if they are below the age of 65, nearly 100% of employees will not get sick.
- The Governor’s intentional fear-mongering – and masks are a big psychological part of that fear-mongering – borders on the criminal act of inciting panic among citizens!
- Where is the evidence, Governor, that this statement is true?
- There is plenty of evidence that it is NOT TRUE such as this review that concluded “Face Masks Don’t Work” in controlling infectious diseases.
- Furthermore there is also evidence that if you are a healthy person, wearing a face mask can actually increase your chances of infection.
- Governor DeWine just withdrew his order Monday that people “must” wear face masks as customers, but maintained his order that all employees “must” wear face masks without a shred of evidence that it would help anything. When Acton was asked the basis for the mask recommendation for customers she said, as always, “I don’t have the data on that.” You bet she doesn’t, because their decision has no basis in fact or science and it is totally arbitrary.
- As DeWine said in his Fox interview last night, his order went a little too far, and so he rescinded it. Now it is time to end all the foolishness that has gone way too far, and stop pretending that masks work when they don’t.
- FACT: The quarantine has FAILED MISERABLY as shown by the California, New York and Florida random testing, and continuing to do so is MEANINGLESS!
- Studies suggest that there are between 50-85 TIMES more cases of coronavirus in the US meaning at least 50 MILLION people have had it already!
- FACT: Continuing to quarantine HEALTHY citizens and keeping schools closed inhibits our ability to create herd immunity, which is the only way to prevent it without a vaccine, and GUARANTEES another outbreak next fall and/or winter.
- Governor DeWine is telling citizens that the goal is to not spread the coronavirus when the actual goal should be to let it spread naturally while protecting the most vulnerable by quarantining only them!
- There is ZERO data to suggest that the actions DeWine took that crippled our economy saved ANY LIVES.
- The Wall Street Journal this week said, “The speed with which officials shuttered the economy appears not to be a factor in Covid deaths.”
- Professor Wilfed Reilly published this imperical study of the effect of lockdowns and concluded “there is no relationship between lockdowns and lower Covid-19 deaths.”
- Governor DeWine has NO medical or scientific reason to NOT OPEN ALL Ohio Businesses TODAY!
- Governor DeWine has NO PROOF that Ohio is still – or ever really was – in any REAL Medical Emergency. The “models” were totally wrong!
- Governor DeWine has INTENTIONALLY not release CRITICAL INFORMATION to YOU about Hospitalizations, and the death counts from the regular flu and other deaths like suicides, drug abuse, ect. from his lockdown orders and business closures in a successful effort to mislead the public.
- Governor DeWine is not only destroying our medical infrastructure, in his bungled effort to save it, he is continuing to destroy thousands of Ohio businesses as well and continues to destroy or state and local governments through the massive losses of tax revenue – all with NO VALID REASONS for doing so.
- Governor DeWine is illegally picking business winners and losers and in doing so is exposing out State to BILLIONS of dollars in legal settlements for the $38.8 BILLION in losses he has inflicted on these business owners.
- Governor DeWine callously threw millions of Ohioans out of work without even making proper arrangements to prepare the Ohio Bureau of Unemployment for the surge of applications he was creating and now MILLIONS of Ohioans have not received unemployment checks in over four weeks!
- You are NOT GOING TO DIE from coronavirus, 90% of you WILL get it eventually and it will not even make you sick, if you do get sick you have a 90% chance of recovering. STOP BEING AFRAID!
THERE IS ONLY ONE SOLUTION, GOVERNOR DEWINE:
OPEN OHIO FOR BUSINESS NOW!
