Covid update: The grand Ohio legal case for our time, against kings on their thrones

—You can hate the law until it’s not there anymore—

The news is coming fast, the implications are titanic.

On Monday, I wrote about Thomas Renz, the Ohio lawyer who is taking on a case for a set of plaintiffs, against Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and the state of Ohio.

The charge: DeWine has created massive damage through lockdowns and other “containment measures” designed to stop the spread of the purported coronavirus.

Against DeWine, attorney Renz has mounted a legal case to defeat both Constitutional violations AND gross scientific fraud.

(Attorney press release posted here; Attorney plaintiff document filed with court posted here.)

(‘Lawsuit’ article archive here)

Update: A crucial part of this case is the DISCOVERY process. Attorney Renz and his colleagues would have the opportunity to sit down with key players in the COVID operation and grill them, in great detail, on matters of fact and science.

Imagine Fauci, Birx, Redfield in the room having to answer very probing questions UNDER OATH.

And the discovery proceedings would be made public, as they happen. Renz would be filing periodic reports with the court.

Another factor. The Ohio court, as part of its verdict, could grant PERMANENT INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. This means it could order the governor of Ohio to cancel the State of Emergency—thereby ending all orders and “containment measures” connected with the Emergency. No lockdowns, no mandatory masks, no mandatory distancing.

Yes, I’m aware that nothing is a slam-dunk in the judicial system. Fingers crossed. But this is a chance, an opportunity, a ray of light, a practical and real possibility.

Further, attorney Renz’s case is a model and a template for other lawyers, in other states and countries, who want to file similar cases.

When a government declares an Emergency, it must explain and justify it on the facts, not on lies and deceptions. Otherwise…

The Constitution no longer exists.

The Law no longer exists.

In their place, there is a reversion to a time of arbitrary edicts, handed down from kings and their wise ones who must not be doubted or challenged.

On what rational basis has Governor Mike DeWine taken away the freedom of citizens? Where is his evidence? What is the quality of that evidence, beyond the mere claim that “experts are always right”?

In his law suit against Governor DeWine, attorney Renz takes up big questions:

What are the REAL COVID case and death numbers?

How much flim-flam has been deployed to cook those numbers?

What is the underhanded definition of a COVID case?

Why is the PCR test useless?

Can a strip of RNA stand in for a virus that isn’t defined?

Is this a pandemic or is it just “another flu season?”

These are just a few of the many questions attorney Renz raises in his lengthy Ohio court filing. He has shocking answers. They do not depend on the news or the assumed primacy of the Coronavirus Task Force or a sitting president or a presidential candidate or a political party or governors. The answers don’t depend on what Governor DeWine thinks or what he has been told.

You could compare this case to a proceeding in which the evidence of a law-enforcement lab is challenged purely on the merits of its findings. The name of the lab doesn’t matter. The government agency which houses the lab doesn’t matter. The so-called reputation of the lab doesn’t matter. What matters is a searchlight centering on fact and truth.

The serious nature of the Ohio proceeding is magnified, because at stake is the freedom of many, many citizens. Their liberty, as enshrined in basic Law, is on the line.

We’re at a crossroads. This case and what happens to it are of vital importance.

Attorney Renz is asking for a jury trial. Citizens would be empaneled to listen to a profound and detailed UNCOVERING of evidentiary fraud, on a truly massive scale. And then this jury would hear how the fraud is leveraging the lockdowns and the destruction of businesses and lives, and the removal of freedom.

This case puts its arms around the immediate future of the country, the Constitution, the basic concept of Law, the difference between a jury and a King, and whatever still remains of 1776.

This case dives into the difference between claims of science, and science, and who controls the distinction.

Winning this one would expose a scientific fraud so solid, so dense, the whole world would see an iron curtain of a century’s duration exploding in front of their eyes.

Victory requires one imperative: follow the Law.

CODA…BREAKING… More good news: federal judge declares Pennsylvania governor’s COVID restrictions unconstitutional.

Bricks are falling out of the walls of the American imprisonment—

CBS News, Pittsburgh: “U.S. District Judge William Stickman IV, an appointee of President Donald Trump, sided with the plaintiffs. Stickman wrote in his ruling that the [Pennsylvania] Wolf administration’s pandemic policies have been overreaching, arbitrary and violated citizens’ constitutional rights…”

FOX News: “The ruling found that [Pennsylvania Governor] Wolf’s restrictions that required people to stay at home, placed size limits on gatherings and ordered ‘non-life-sustaining’ businesses to shut down were unconstitutional.”

In this case, the judge made his ruling strictly on Constitutional grounds. His conclusion is worth reading:

“…even in an emergency, the authority of the government is not unfettered. The liberties protected by the Constitution are not fair-weather freedoms — in place when times are good but able to be cast aside in times of trouble. There is no question that this Country has faced, and will face, emergencies of every sort. But the solution to a national crisis can never be permitted to supersede the commitment to individual liberty that stands as the foundation of the American experiment. The Constitution cannot accept the concept of a ‘new normal’ where the basic liberties of the people can be subordinated to open-ended emergency mitigation measures. Rather, the Constitution sets certain lines that may not be crossed, even in an emergency. Action taken by Defendants [Governor Wolf] crossed those lines. It is the duty of the Court to declare those actions unconstitutional. Thus, consistent with the reasons set forth above, the Court will enter judgement in favor of Plaintiffs.”

United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, US District Judge William S Stickman IV, County of Butler et al v. [Governor] Thomas W Wolf et al.

NO emergency is so great that it supersedes individual liberty and freedom.

Even if the science underlying the official response to COVID were true (which it decidedly is NOT), it wouldn’t justify tearing away Constitutional and natural freedoms.

The resistance to tyranny is alive.

A million peaceful protestors in Berlin; 460,000 bikers riding into Sturgis, South Dakota, where Governor Kristi Noem has never locked down; numerous other protests the mainstream press refuses to cover; the new groundbreaking Ohio lawsuit filing I’ve been covering; untold millions of people who know what a sham and a crime the whole COVID operation really is…

Lights are coming on and the wind has changed direction.

    The Ohio lawsuit is a good move by the resistance, but Deep State International’s Batman utility belt carries a multitude of tools:

    YouTube Censors Trump’s Health Advisor, Dr. Scott Atlas

    The fight, if there’s really one fomenting, will need many more fronts, with many more self-enlisted heroes – from among the masses of we, the ordinary people.

    Arrests must begin of those complicit in government and industry. K-Street lobbyist-whores need shutdown, now.

    • JJ says:

      True. But there is one group that can knock it all down in one sweep if enough of them grow some balls and stick to their oath to do no harm. I am talking doctors. They can fire some number but not tens of thousands of specialists. Doctors and nurses should come out and call the scammers out if the are true to their ideals. Tens of thousands of health professionals can destroy this far e literally over night.

    • RegretLeft says:

      excellent links! – thanks. I am astonished at the “Bill Gates slams fda” news – they are fighting among themselves like this?! – is that the way this thing starts to fall apart?

      In July or so there was a video everywhere of Gates on CBS News being queried about vaccine side effects reports. And he called the FDA (quote) “the gold standard” [for vaccine safety] – and now this! … stay tuned!

  2. Donna Guillaume says:

    Jon, thanks so much for posting about the Ohio suit. I’ve been feeling so desperate for “fresh air” news; you are offering me a much appreciated service of fact,hope and sun light in this ugly time.

  3. DSKlausler says:

    Back in the day, and even though I am vehemently anti-religion, I had to use a well-constructed RELIGIOUS exemption to get my kids out of mandated [public] school vaccinations. The anti-vax expert advisor had sternly warned that you simply could neither argue medicine nor facts with the bureaucrats and eventually “the court,” as it would always claim that the GOVERNMENT “experts” know all – and that it would be dismissing my claim of potential bodily harm.

    I feel that the same will happen with these current proceedings.

    The U.S. legal system is third-world banana republic at best.

    • za ka lu says:

      thx DSKlauser–

      liberty is enshrined in REAL LAW, that is natural law, which does not require a ‘judge’ or an ‘opinion’; natural laws are few, are CONSISTENT, honest, just due to being how things REALLY ARE, and will never ‘go away’–

      LEGAL is FAKE LAW, colorable ‘law’/ fictional; created for control and exploitation, all WITHOUT VALID CONSENT—courts are wretched FICTION. No matter what is determined by a jury, the usurpers can and DO ‘overrule’ by ‘judicial review’ which is NOT true LAW/due process–kangaroos anyone?

      heck, judicial review came from the annihilation of marbury v madison, which ruled any basic right CANNOT be infringed upon, taxed, regulated, licensed…you know like travel, speech, those ol’ chestnuts…Now we are told by the ministry of truth ghooul-gle this landmark case of all USA juris prudence history established ‘judicial review’ meaning the ‘judiciary / judge(s) can over-rule any jury decision’.. aka tyranny.

      the only way to win this wicked game of ‘theirs’ is not to play. End Compliance, we are not a valid party to.

  4. Robert C says:

    This is uplifting! It has to start somewhere. Because, California sure as hell won’t start it and do the right thing. Kudos to the judge and judges that move forward with decisions and rulings in favor of giving back our rights and freedoms. Restore our country and eliminate those who caused all of this, including politicians, corporations, State Health officials, etc. You know all those people will try to cover their asses. Punish main stream media!!!

    • JB says:

      California is so bass ackwards right now, from what I hear. Didn’t they pass a law that will make it easier for pedos or something?

      • JJ says:

        Yes. The pedo enabler Newsom decided that if a 24 year old is having sex with 14 yo he won’t be on sex offenders list. Disgusting.

      • Robert C says:

        JB and JJ: “From what I hear” is not really credible, JB. Your comment is one sided view and you’re asking a question that you obviously have not done research on. Just get facts(not from mainstream media) that you can be certain with then, ask questions. Referring to “Pedos” is not even on the books in this current discussion topic on the destruction of the fake covid plandemic. We’re taking back our rights and Freedom in this current discussion. No offense intended. Just hoping you get some useful info here. Stay healthy and Dump the Face Diapers!

        • Pepe says:

          California lawmakers passed bill SB145 Monday that would reduce penalties for adults who have oral or anal sex with a “willing” minor child if the sex offender is within ten years of the age of the victim. Call it the Pedophile Protection Bill, because that’s what it is.

          • ak in vt says:

            Here is the link;


            Go to: Sec.2, 290., c.(2) which reads:

            (2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), a person convicted of a violation of subdivision (b) of Section 286, subdivision (b) of Section 287, or subdivision (h) or (i) of Section 289 shall not be required to register if, at the time of the offense, the person is NOT MORE THAN 10 YEARS OLDER THAN THE MINOR (caps are mine), as measured from the minor’s date of birth to the person’s date of birth, and the conviction is the only one requiring the person to register. This paragraph does not preclude the court from requiring a person to register pursuant to Section 290.006.

            This bill is pretty egregious, but it is not as bad as you are all stating. This bill deals with Registry if you are a sex offender, not actual prosecution and conviction.

            Good luck California!

        • JB says:

          Robert, that’s why I said “from what I heard”. I didn’t know if it was actually true (honestly, I heard about that law from an acquaintance who is conservative).

          And, I agree with you about the useful info. I don’t wear masks when I go out in public (I was in a grocery store yesterday, and I seemed to be the only one without one).

        • JJ says:

          I understand what you mean but I’ve never said “from what I hear” – I know Newsom is the pedo enabler. Period. The thing about “links” and “source material” is I’d have to quit my job and spend my whole two lives just recording it all and sending people materials. Luckily we have channels like Red Ice TV, Highimpact TV, James Corbett Report, RTR Truth, Truthstream media, David Icke etc etc etc. Some of them give you the shownotes so you can look this things up. Just like Jon Rappoport, Crowe and Icke are my source for this fake pandemic. Also, google and yt scrap a lot of results that don’t mirror the official crap-stream propaganda lies, so it’s getting more and more difficult to get anything from them. For videos you got to use lbry, bitchute or dlive, for search swisscows or duckduckgo (but these are getting gradually destroyed by the ADL and other fascist organizations.

          • JA says:

            Hang in there JJ.

            I have noticed there is always someone who wants to denigrate your posts because you KNOW and speak the truth.

            When you get too close to just WHO rules the earth at this time there will always be someone ready to take a punch at you.

            I know both of us would like an entire and immediate awakening of who really is at the top of the puppet show but until that happens be happy with the fact that we have been given “eyes to see and ears to hear”. It is a gift from the true GOD. Be grateful for that in these babble driven times.

            From reading your posts I know you have went deep in the “Rabbit Hole” and most are not willing to spend the time it takes to dig for the truth.

  5. RegretLeft says:

    I think you are probably correct – the wind is shifting. This PA Fed Court ruling did lift me.

    Oh… but… it will head to US Supreme – and the likelihood is that it will be reversed 5-4. Roberts siding with the “liberals” – the religious group in NV thought they had a very strong case – and were surprise to lose 5-4.

    Roberts has a foreign-born adoptive son. People have speculated that he lives (and votes)under the threat of a US State Dept review of the immigration actions associated with that adoption.

    But yes! – We – JR of course – should take some credit the wind is shifting – did anyone mention the top Irish MD calling, in effect, “hoax!”? The Ohio case stands a good chance – then will go to US Supreme… but it does get people thinking and growing that “untold millions” number who understand the OP – and start to drop their fear – that’s key – how many people one-by-one STOP being afraid?

    Unconstitutional is understatement. Totalitarian fascist psychonauts is closer. If I make it to 11/08/2022, I’ll be voting then. Thanks Mr R.

    Jon- Thanks so much for this update and for all of your tireless effort to expose this hoax!!


    Also, not sure this is a good way of fighting back, but there was an article in the paper today NJ Trenton Times (total rag) saying something about officials are expecting a twindemic with the covid hoax and seasonal flu, so everyone should get their flu shots asap. Well, since the whore journalist included his email, I wrote him and said shouldn’t you have included this:

    “Pentagon Study: Flu Shot Raises Risk of Coronavirus by 36% (and Other Supporting Studies)”

    Well, he wrote me back and tried to refute it, so I pointed out the key passage. And then I included my links with Dr. Carrie Madej warning about the experimental vaccine and a bunch of others calling out the hoax. I also said something about not determining cause of death and calling everything covid, as well as the bogus PCR test. And, I confess, I got a bit nasty (I couldn’t help myself) and I called him one of the whore “journalists” pushing the propaganda, and I told him to get ready for the collapse and cashless society.

    Not sure this will get me anywhere, but it actually felt good to call him out for participating in the destruction of America.

    People of Pennsylvania,

    Take off your masks!

    People of the United States, TAKE OFF YOUR MASKS!!!

    Now’s the time.
    Risk the fine.
    Risk the humiliation.
    Risk a night in jail.
    Take off your masks. This is passive resistance.

    NO state in the US has passed a law requiring face masks. So, NOT wearing a face mask is not a crime. You may face a penalty — just like you would if you forgot to put a quarter in the parking meter. The fine might be a lot. When the fines start adding up, start up a go-fund-me page.

    You are not breaking the “law” by not wearing a face mask.

    If a store won’t let you in, don’t go in. Shop elsewhere. If you cannot shop elsewhere — phone the store and ask for curbside pick-up. If everyone who did not want to wear a mask asked for curbside pick-up, the stores would stop “enforcing” the mask “mandates” as they could not cope with that much curbside pick-up.

    Store owners and managers: When did the government start requiring you to be the “police force,” or an “agent of the government?” (Same for you “snitches.”)

    I propose that this Saturday, the 19th, be the day we all take off our masks — in stores, in public, wherever. How about at 12:00 standard time whatever time zone you live in?

    Only 1/3 of the population wanted the American Revolution and “participated” in it. We can overturn this baloney with civil disobedience — mind you, disobedience to something which isn’t even a law.

    Stand up and be counted. TAKE OFF YOUR MASKS!!!

    • Izak says:

      All of those “so called” executive orders made by any of states governors which attempts to lawfully force members of the public citizenry living within each of their individually respective states to comply with their “Public Mandated Face Masks” recommendations actually cannot be legally enforced under any circumstances whatsoever.

      A governor of a state cannot make any laws period however they’re responsible for signing bills passed by their states legislative assemblies into law. But whatever people’s understanding of the law might or might not actually be it’s important that people remember that they’ve been granted certain civil rights which are protected by state and federal law so regardless of whatever type of government mandated requirements that they’ve been misled into believing has to be followed or whatever don’t forget that you’re legally within your rights to choose not to comply with them.

  16. Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

    I’d like to report here that I now carry information-weapons like a flyer for and a Religious Exemption lanyard from or Right to Breathe Agency. I also carry a modified face shield just in case I have to use it to de-escalate a confrontation but I haven’t had to use it yet. I look like a manager or a “someone”. People ask me if I work at stores if I’m at a store and that begins a short friendly conversation and handout. I had 2 of those today. I carefully select who I talk to or make eye contact with. My methods, I notice, are becoming more efficient and refined.

    • jjtech says:

      Our strategy is creating groups of people who meet in front of the store – as many as possible – and then we get inside without a mask in large group and buy a bubble gum or a bottle of water. If one individual goes around without a mask among hudreds of masktards he can be easily picked up and singled out. But if 50-100 people do this they’re clueless.

      • ICUN3D says:

        I just go in by myself and never mask up. When ever I see someone else without a mask, I thank them for their sanity. The last few times I’ve been to the grocery store, I usually find just one other freedom lover & they have always been by themselves. Point is, you don’t need a group to exercise your rights. I had one cashier tell me to wear one next time. I said no thank you & asked her if she was just going to wear a mask for the rest of her life.

        • JJ says:

          Sure – I NEVER wore a mask during this fake pandemic. 95% of the time I go alone, too. It’s just that the “sacurity” of the mall asked me out a few times. 2 times I called police and they sided with me actually. But sometimes I just don’t have the time to wait half hour for the police and another 15 to make a case against the mall. So I have to go somewhere else or literally fight with security wich is pointless.

  17. Mac says:

    Sort of per article as on separation between govt/state and individuals, and covid thing, I keep landing on a question. I tend to think bacterias or overload and not eating right is most disease, but anyway If this is a bad disease why isn’t total focus on cure, why any focus on vaxeen. I know there was hcq or whatever but distracts from the core question, why isn’t all focus on cure. If focus on cure then vax wouldn’t matter because you just eat capsules, people have a bottle of whatever. No masks or vax. The only answer I see for them focusing on vaxs is to dictate jabbing people as a submission. I don’t use the word rights anymore because there really isn’t such thing if you don’t make them yourself, on paper is just a word, but back to point if they are so bent on all these things why not just make a cure we could choose to take or not. They’re handing billions to pharmas, so could do that for cure instead, so again, why vaxs.
    A bottle of whatever for each person would cost way less than all they’re doing, so makes no sense. If do the math, billion for either vax or cure, cure probably cost less, and if vax, add five or six medical ‘sterile’ jabbers going door to door that’s what five hundred an hour, billions more not necessary. Makes no sense. Even if they dictated have to go to some center to be jabbed that’s still more complication and expense when could just mail or pick up a bottle of capsules. Just seems we are being steered away from core questions. Though suppose also goes to individuals ability, making rights by asking the questions, making effort on things. In any case thanks for the article Jon.

    The following is a statement which comes from within the British Intelligence Wing of the Cyrptocracy:

    ‘This demonstrates one of our simpler methods: realizing that our activities will, sooner or later, come to light, we structure our activities so as conspiracy researchers unravel them, they will release information into the public consciousness in such a way that it mirrors our initiatory procedure. In this way, the more we are investigated, the more masses of people are psychologically processed, by the very people who seek to expose us. The meme that constitutes our essential structure is then successfully mimicked within the consciousness of those who investigate us. Success can then be measured precisely to the extent that our work is exposed.’
