Help needed to push House Bill 90!

Please call and email Speaker Cupp and respectfully ask him to move HB 90! We need this bill to move out of committee and onto the House floor. HB90 has shown to have tremendous support from Ohioans, business owners and medical professionals.

Recent amendments have generalized the limits to apply to other sections of Ohio Revised Code under which the governor and Department of Health were claiming powers, automatic expiration of any rule or order after 30 days (with legislature authority to extend the order), prohibits any restrictions from extending beyond 30 days, allows lawsuits to stay within county of origin (versus having to be tried in Franklin County), and adds attorney fees for prevailing parties.

To Speaker Cupp,

I urge you to send HB 90 to the house floor for a vote.

As a result of the overreach on the part of Governor Dewine and the state health director, the not-for-profit that I run in Mahoning County has lost 75% of its revenue. Frankly, I don’t know how we are still operating or for how much longer. The majority of our revenue comes from people who travel here from other states in the region for weekend retreats and weeklong courses. All of our programs are based on direct, personal contact with students who now are either still frightened to attend locally, or who are restricted in their travel from states adjacent to Ohio, due to fears of having to quarantine for 14 days. And now there is talk of vaccine cards and mandatory vaccination being required by employers in the state.

I have a medical exemption to vaccination and am finding that, if I were to seek other employment, I may not be hired without having been inoculated with an experimental biologic that the manufacturers themselves state, in their FDA EUA applications, are gene therapy that is not designed to prevent or cure infection of any virus. So, I can’t get hired, I have no savings, and I have family members who rely on me financially, for whom I can no longer support. I view this as a direct result of the abdication of the legislative powers of the state legislature, now taken by the Governor, and it has to stop now!

Corrupted Data Pool and then Need for Special Oversight Committee

I feel that, regarding Covid, there is no informed consent possible currently, because there is no transparency with respect to the data pool in the state of Ohio that I view as being corrupted. And I do not trust what I’m being told by the Governor and public health director (that conflicts with my own vetting) and I am quickly losing all trust in my government.

What I Like About HB 90

This bill provides for a long-needed Ohio health oversight and advisory committee. For the past year, I have personally spoken to and interviewed doctors on the front lines treating patients with SARS-COV2 infection. They are using inexpensive, effective alternate therapies. You may not know that, for example, the Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccines are not vaccines at all. You can read this for yourself in the FDA application documents for emergency use authorization for these products (I am happy to provide you with links to these documents, along with other supporting data). They are no more than experimental biological treatments, gene therapy that is only designed to reduce clinically significant symptoms. These experimental drugs are not even designed to address, prevent or cure viral infection.

At the same time, FDA licensed and approved drugs like low-dose Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin (as an example, see the taped Senate hearing where Dr. Pierre Kory was questioned about his successful use of this treatment), Budesonide and other alternative therapies such as intravenous vitamin C, D and Zinc are being used every day by frontline doctors to cure the actual viral infection, something that the current experimental biologics being called vaccines are not even designed to do! It is a great travesty and, in my view, criminal, that the Governor has insisted that waiting on a vaccine is the only way for the state to be free of emergency mandates, lockdown measures, etc. This decision on the part of Governor Dewine has resulted in many needless deaths that could have been prevented if he and the health director had followed years of established science – ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL.

So, the importance of having an Ohio health oversight and advisory committee is that there will be a legislative body that can oversee the task of ensuring that enough alternative therapies for, in this case, the reversal and cure of a viral outbreak can be widely-distributed to the state population.

For those who want to risk taking an experimental drug that is not designed to target the actual infection, let them do so. But for those of us who have weighed the risks against any potential benefit and decided not to be vaccinated, there must be a statewide distribution of the readily available alternative therapies that exist for addressing the infection. DON’T DECIDE FOR US. MAKE THE TRUE SCIENTIFIC DATA AVAILABLE AND LET US CHOOSE WHICH THERAPY WE WANT TO UTILIZE. Our health is our concern. The government is not my parent or guardian in the matter of my health, I am.

The other part of the bill (of many parts that I like and support) is the power proposed to be given to the general assembly to rescind executive public health state of emergency orders after 30 days, should the GA decide that, for any reason, the Ohio health oversight and advisory committee has not done its job in rescinding such orders after 11 days.

The other part of this bill that I want to mention is the power to subpoena. Our state legislature needs to adopt hearings of doctors and research scientists inside and outside the state who are specialists in this field, who are being censored by mainstream media and Big Tech.

They are being censored simply because they are doing their job of publicizing what the science actually shows regarding this outbreak and how to address it – because they won’t follow the script that demands they say that vaccines are the only way out of the pandemic when the scientific data shows otherwise. And I will be happy to help in providing the legislature with a list of medical and scientific professionals who should be called to testify. OPEN SCIENTIFIC DEBATE THAT ALLOWS FOR THE PROPER VETTING OF THE COVID-19 DATA POOL IS THE ONLY WAY OUT OF THIS MESS.

SB 22 is the bill that will facilitate this process, with the proper checks and balances afforded to us under the Constitution, that will free us from the tyranny of the hubris of Dewine and the state health director that has destroyed lives, destroyed our economy and kept us enslaved in the nightmare of fear.

Before any more of my rights are taken from me, please move HB 90 out of committee and on to the house floor for a vote.

Respectfully,

Congratulations Are In Order
