Five Biggest Lies DeWine is Telling Ohioans


1) DeWine keeps repeating “This is a Very DEADLY virus” – FACTS SAY IT’S NOT!

  • 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!
  • But Acton and DeWine have intentionally and continuously conflated “contageous” with “DEADLY” in a very successful effort to scare citizens to death with lies.

2) We CANNOT Open Businesses yet because we “don’t want a big spike in cases”

  • 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!

3) Everyone should wear face masks and it will stop the spread of the coronavirus

  • 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.

4) We need to quarantine everyone in our homes to stop the spread of Coronavirus

  • FACT: The quarantine has FAILED MISERABLY as shown by the CaliforniaNew 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!

5) The deaths in Ohio are down because of His “Aggressive” Early Actions

  • 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!


This chart shows – unequivocally – that, historically, the threat of dying from the current coronavirus is less than the average of deaths in your county from the regular flu, based on average of flu from 2007-2019. This data is thanks to Jim Rigano who extracted it from the Ohio Department of Health Data Warehouse as of Monday, April 27, 2020.

So stop being AFRAID for NO REASON! Do be scared by the Lies – KNOW THE TRUTH and SHARE IT! Let’s get back to work and back to our lives, with or without “permission” and NEVER FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE DONE THIS TO US!

      The statement that we continually hear, “We are all in this together”, is a brainwashing technic to cause us to do the bidding of those in authority. This virus is contagious but shutting down our economy is also deadly! Other viruses have taken lives and there were no shut downs of the whole country!
      Time to say enough!

        You sir and your over paid Dr are in total violation of our rights!!! You need to get off your high horse with this power play. You have Ohioans going hungry, students who paid for there education missing out on there studies, vocational students who lost much needed lab time. And most of all you shut down any kind of business that pays your wages!!! Open OH YOUR OUT OF YOUR CONTROL RELM! YOU ARE VIOLATING OUR CONSTITUTION!! Which you nor Acton have the right to do. You have LIED to all of us you’ve been back peddling on your statements, you know your wrong so do the right thing an open Ohio .

      DeWine and Acton have refused to show us the real numbers. They have lied to us all along. Evidence shows wearing masks are more harmful than not. It is time now with no restrictions to open our state. All DeWine and Acton have been fear mongering the people with no real evidence. Remember this is truly not about the virus but taking away our constitutional rights and freedoms.

    Having concern for the vulnerable is noble, and we all care. Now we ask the Governor to have the same level of concern for the healthy who have sacrificed their freedom and livelihood. Now the vulnerable must care for themselves and be segregated until we get a suitable treatment or vaccine, just like every other flu outbreak. Lead the Country by admitting the lock down was a crude course of action and a product of global group thinking. Then do what’s right for the vast majority of Ohioans, and open the State and let us try to repair the damage.

    OPEN OHIO! We are smart people who CAN think and act for ourselves! If you are going to take away our right for a virus that “might” or “potentially ” be fatal, how long before our driving privileges are taken away? Because we KNOW driving accidents kill and injure MORE people per year than this virus will. Stop the overreach by DeWine & Acton NOW!

    I am so disappointed in your leadership Governor DeWine. I know you have had a lot of hard decisions to make but shutting down Ohio’s economy In my opinion was the wrong decision. Loss of life is a terrible thing but you have caused a different loss of life. Some business are destroyed and won’t be able to reopen. Families lives have been destroyed. You and Amy Acton have taken our rights away, Government Overreach.

    Time to OPEN Ohio. I’m a furloughed hospital worker and DeWine IS destroying our hospital system. DeWine and Acton know NOTHING! They both sound like blubbering idiots!

    It’s also time to start looking for a replacement for DeWine in 2022. We can do better. I held my nose votting for him in 2018 and I now understand why. He is a true RHINO!

    Dewine and Acton have induced panic in Ohio and kept the children from getting a real education shame on them these children deserve an education. They deserve to play sports at school those things keep our children busy and out of trouble. This has to stop they have denied the people of Ohio medical care dental care. They have denied people from working. They need to be held responsible for all. We the people are done. Unplug tge tv when they are on.

    May 2, 2020 at 9:42 pm been off work 6 weeks. Took 3.5 weeks go get my unemployment. Suppose to go back to work Monday. I’m in fear that if there would be a spike. Then he closes everything down again. I can f afford to have go wait another 3.5 weeks to get the unemployment started again. It’s a very sad situation

    Actually, I love this comparison because I believe it proves how sheltering in place and social distancing have saved many people from this virus. Of course at some point we need to get back to life and if we do that the right way we can accomplish the goal of saving lives and our economy.

    This is Treason! They have turned this country into a communist state! This is ALL about taking our constitutional and GOD given rights and if we let them we won’t get them back! We are not at war with a virus we are at war with our own government! They have created so much fear over a virus that people believe that they should all be quarantined ! You quarantine sick people not a whole country! We Must Take Back OUR RIGHTS before its to late!

    This petition does not address both sides of that argument, but I concur with opening businesses up and lessening fear. Please find ways to protect the jobs of the high-risk folks. I want to support the Governor but let us see the cases start to go back up before asking us to accept permanent financial ruin!

    Please. open Ohio now. Why are you doing this? Do you not understand immunology? Do you not understand the effects of unemployment? Don’t you understand what happens when communism runs a nation? Seriously. We just want our freedoms as described in the constitution of the United States of America. We want to be able to work and take care of our families. We don’t want our government to go bankrupt. We don’t want the value of the dollar to drop to nearly nothing. We know we can’t continue like this without devastating affects. We wonder why you apparently want devastating affects. We can only come up with logical conclusions. Who are you?

    I have wrote to many in the Ohio House and even Congress about Governor Dewine and all his mandates.Him and his mistress Action amy can cause complete anarchy.Why does Amy action care so much when she in fact is a pro abortionist.
    I asked my congressman just how do we ever repay the 2.6 trillion dollar fed reserve loan.He had no clue.Something is going on.
