Ohio Abandons Its chloroquine Ban After Public Outrage


The state of Ohio has reversed its ban on the anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine for Coronavirus just hours after announcing the move.

Outraged citizens pressured Republican Governor Mike DeWine to intervene and successfully shut down the ban.

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy announced the ban to go into effect on July 30, but DeWine stepped in and snuffed out the ban Thursday.

The political class and medical establishment led by NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci is trying to sully Hydroxychloroquine’s reputation after President Donald Trump touted the drug, which people credit with saving their lives.

Fauci has recently personally targeted DeWine’s state of Ohio with criticism about its Coronavirus response.

Ohio County Implements Hotline to Report People Not Wearing Masks

Cuyahoga County — which houses Cleveland, Ohio — has created a hotline so that people can tattle on their neighbors for not wearing masks. Ironically, the county executive claims that they “want people to [wear masks] voluntarily.”

Cuyahoga County has taken Ohio governor Mike DeWine’s mask order to the next level by establishing a hotline that allows people to report others for not wearing what is now considered proper attire in the new era of the Chinese coronavirus, according to a report by Cleveland.com.

The report added that the governor’s mask order will largely rely upon complaints filed by the public, rather than proactive policing.

“This is not intended to be going out and finding people not wearing masks,” insisted Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish in an announcement on Friday. “We want people to wear their masks — we want people to do it voluntarily.”


BLM Protester In Ohio Told ‘This Ain’t Seattle’ And ‘We Don’t Put Up With Your Sh*t Here’ (Video)


A Black Lives Matter protest that descended on the small rural town of Bethel, Ohio, this week was met by over 700 mostly peaceful counter-protesters affiliated with motorcycle clubs and “Back the Blue” groups.

The counter-demonstrators, some of whom were armed with rifles and baseball bats, were filmed by the BLM protesters, and several videos have circulated on social media that were posted with the intent of doxxing counter-protesters.

One heated exchange between the two sides was posted to Twitter by a Black Lives Matter account which captioned the video, “Ohio Trump supporters & counter protesters to the Black Life Matters movement threaten and scream to protesters ‘This is a Rublican State’ and a host of other racial slurs.”

Protest in Downtown Columbus Broken Up After Demonstrators Breach Ohio Statehouse


Crowds gathered across Columbus Thursday evening to protest police brutality after the death of 46-year-old George Floyd, who died in Minneapolis police custody on Monday.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine held a news conference Friday to talk about Floyd’s death and the protests in downtown Columbus on Thursday night.

“While Fran and I feel sorrow and disgust at what we saw, we cannot fully comprehend or imagine what an African American family must feel,” DeWine said. “His death impacts all of us. We have a responsibility to each other . . . regardless of race, to stand up and speak out and say ‘We won’t tolerate conduct like this.’”

Floyd was restrained by officer Derek Chauvin, who dug his knee into Floyd’s neck. Chauvin was arrested Friday and charged with third degree murder and manslaughter.

Ohio Restaurant Turns to Shower Curtains For Reopen Strategy

There’s a new drink on the menu at the Twisted Citrus, and it matches some new drapery.

The Rubber Duckie Mimosa, a concoction of champagne and blue rasberry lemonade with a classic yellow rubber duck floating on top, was inspired by the North Canton, Ohio breakfast joint’s method of protecting its patrons from the spread of COVID-19: shower curtains.

In a statement, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said that restaurants in the state can open next week. He didn’t put a limit on occupancy, but said that establishments would either have to have patrons stay six feet apart or be separated by a barrier.

“Like most breakfast restaurants, we’re pretty small,” says Twisted Citrus owner Kim Shapiro. “We’ve got tight seating, so it wouldn’t have made financial sense for us to reopen 6 feet apart.”

Reporter Millie Weaver interviews business owner Valter Veliu in Columbus, Ohio, outside his popular authentic German restaurant called “Valter’s at the Maennerchor” to discuss the impact Governor Mike DeWine’s Stay-At-Home Order is having on small business owners.

While large retail and grocery chains like Walmart, Giant Eagle, Target, and others hold a monopoly on the market during the Coronavirus shut downs, small business owners are being negatively impacted.

Business owners are raising important questions regarding the unfair practice of the government picking and choosing which businesses are considered “essential” or not.

“When we got there, there was a barn full of people, ” Geauga Sheriff Scott Hildenbrand detailed. “Some of them ran. There was one that was too intoxicated to run and that person had to be transported by ambulance.”

Police say they arrested one person, charging them with disorderly conduct, and another for violating the order, while two minors were also charged for underage drinking.
