Make Americans Free Again, Ohio Stands Up!, the New
Mexico Freedoms Alliance, and New Mexico Stands Up

Partner to Fight Tyranny

“The State and Federal public health system have misled the public, politicians, and even the
Courts. If they have ANY integrity, they will recognize the truth and accept our requests for
injunctive relief.”

12/21/2020, New Mexico and Ohio – It is a true honor and privilege to announce that Make Americans Free Again, Ohio Stands Up!, New Mexico Stands Up! and the New Mexico Freedom Alliance are partnering in the fight against tyranny.  Today the legal team representing the Ohio Stands Up! lawsuit against the State of Ohio, along with Attorneys N. Ana Garner and Jonathan Diener from New Mexico will be filing a major action in the state of New Mexico to free New Mexicans from the tyrannical overreaction to a disease that has been shown to have a 99.9%+ recovery rate.  This exciting news is made better by an announcement from the same team that they will be filing a third action against the HHS, CDC, and NCHS for intentionally misleading the public regarding the dangers of COVID-19.  Attorney Renz stated, “This is a major step in freeing our nation. The data and facts could not be more clear. Neither could the fact that DHHS has allowed its staff to egregiously violate the law by misrepresenting the dangers posed by this virus. We look forward to shining the light of truth on this issue and alleviating the fears of the public.”  Attorney Garner stated, “Today we take the first step in throwing off the shackles of tyranny and truly re-opening New Mexico and the nation.”  The three organizations agree that if this sort of reaction from the government for a disease that has been shown to be roughly as dangerous as the seasonal flu, is considered justifiable under the law, then our freedoms as Americans are truly lost.

Important updates from Ohio Stands Up! and Make Americans Free Again (MAFA)

“The free people of the world are uniting in the fight against fraud and global tyranny”
11/19/2020, Toledo, OH – Ohio Stands Up! and MAFA are proud to announce that our attorneys,
Thomas Renz and Robert Gargasz, have joined forces with Reiner Fuellmich and Dr. Eric Nepute to
continue to battle against the COVID lie. As the nation is continuing to face both unprecedented and
illegal actions taken by state legislatures and as many world governments continue to trample the
rights of their citizens, the global leaders of this movement must unite to ensure freedom, not tyranny,
prevail throughout the world.
As the COVID cabal continues to spread lies it is becoming clearer and clearer that they are running
out of credibility. The CDC has quit tracking influenza this year so that cases can more easily be
classified as COVID. Ohio has increased testing of healthy people so it can report more cases. PCR
tests throughout the United States are being ran above 35 cycles despite the fact that doing so can
provide inaccurate results as much as 97% of the time (see and
that even Dr. Faucii said anything over 35 cycles was not accurate.
Ohio Stands Up! and MAFA are taking steps to fight back. Attached to this press release is an Ohio
Public Records Request we will be sending to the Governor and Department of Health. We know
cases are up because testing is up but are the tests valid? We await the State’s response and again
ask the question, if you have nothing to hide why are you hiding so much?
One final note, the only study on cloth masks has recently been published at This study found that wearing cloth masks is actually
dangerous and can increase the risk of infections. We now ask the question; what science are these
policies based on?

Dear Sir or Madam,

On behalf of Ohio Stands Up and Make America Free Again I am formally making several public records requests
pursuant to the Ohio Public Records Act (“OPRA”). The OPRA requires that a public records request be granted in a
reasonable period of time. Accordingly, we are asking for responses to the following requests within the amount of time
listed below:

1. We request a list of all labs/companies/organizations responsible for providing testing results related to COVID-
19 testing in the state of Ohio on or before December 1, 2020. This list should be readily available and there

should be no reason for delay.
2. We request the number of “cycles” each lab is using for PCR tests performed on Ohio citizens. This should also
be readily available, and we request the data again be provided on or before December 1, 2020.
3. We request the number of “cycles” used in PCR tests performed on Ohio citizens since the beginning of the
COVID-19 emergency. This should also be readily available, and we request the data again be provided on or
before December 1, 2020.
4. We request a list of all medical and public health advisors that have provided guidance to the Governor and/or
Ohio Department of Health since January 1 regarding COVID-19. This data should be readily available and we
request the data be provided on or before December 1, 2020.
We remind the State that the public records statute must be construed liberally in favor of broad access, with any doubt
resolved in favor of disclosure of public records. State ex rel. Rogers v. Dept. of Rehab. & Corr., 155 Ohio St.3d 545,
2018-Ohio-5111, 122 N.E.3d 1208, ¶ 6. This plus the recent Court of Claims decision suggest there is no reason for delay.
We further request that this information be shared with urgency. Recent information from various government officials
and international scientists have suggested that an incredible level of fraud may be occurring in Ohio with regards to
COVID-19. We are very concerned that this fraudulent data may be forming the basis for state actions that are so severely
damaging small businesses, the health of children and the elderly, families, and creating a general environment of fear
throughout the state. As such, it behooves us all to look into this as quickly as possible.
We appreciate your cooperation in fulfilling your duties under OPRA.

Sincerely yours,

Thomas Renz

Press Release
Sept 10, 2020

Ohio Stands Up! will be able to enter into the discovery stage of the trial soon and looks forward to deposing under oath the relevant state and federal officials.

“As the state continues to double down on this continued fraud, going so far as to create FEMA “concentration camps,” we are working to shine the light of truth on the dark reality of the COVID response.”

9/10/2020, Toledo, OH – As the state of Ohio continues to discriminate against the elderly and promote fear amongst the population, Ohio Stands Up! is making progress in shining the light of justice on the issue. Recent days have seen some of the most incredible steps yet taken in Ohio’s response to a disease that is only slightly more dangerous to most people than a seasonal influenza. Pursuant to D.O.-Non-Congregate-Shelter-Second-Amended-08.31.20 the state is creating FEMA “prison camps” to place people that are “unable to self-isolate” and showing symptoms of COVID-19.

Ohio Stands Up! attorney, Thomas Renz, said, “In working with our doctors and other experts we have become particularly troubled by this order. The symptoms of COVID-19 are the same or similar to a common cold, allergies, influenza, and even the side effects of some common medications. Since the test is inaccurate, even when used on the governor, how will we know who to imprison, and how will this imprisonment impact these people?”

Attorney Robert Gargasz asked, “Isn’t this similar to what Governor Cuomo did in nursing homes in New York, putting potentially sick and healthy people together in the same settings? Are we poisoning the healthy?” He goes on to ask, “With new reports that deaths are now below pre-pandemic levels, how can these actions be justified?”

Governor DeWine noted recently that the state would be eligible for additional funds for undertaking this project. This seems to indicate that the State makes money for imprisoning people without trial.

Ohio Stands Up! is happy, however, to announce that it appears we will be able to enter into the discovery stage of the trial soon. Attorney Renz stated, “Discovery is a critical part of this trial. The State has consistently told us that there is a public health crisis but refused to share their basis for this assertion. As we proceed through discovery the State will no longer be able to hide their data and models. We will finally be able to see the truth and determine just how dangerous this ‘crisis’ really is. We look forward to deposing the relevant state and federal officials and seeing what they have to say under oath.”

Ohio Stands Up! files lawsuit against the State of Ohio to remove the unconstitutional emergency order “We believe that the response to COVID-19 has been the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American public,” attorney Thomas Renz 8/31/2020, Toledo, OH – Determined to restore the Constitutional rights that have been stripped away by the State of Ohio’s unjustified actions regarding COVID-19, Ohio Stands Up! has filed suit in the Northern District of Ohio Federal Court to remove Gov. Mike DeWine’s emergency order. The group is represented by attorneys Thomas Renz and Robert Gargasz. “We believe that the response to COVID-19 has been the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American public,” Renz said. “The objective of this legal action is to force the state to honor the Constitution and to stop the lies, manipulation and fear-mongering intentionally being promoted by public health officials and elected officials.” Ohio Stands Up! is a grassroots organization composed of Ohio citizens who are focused on restoring the rights of Ohio’s 11.69 million residents and educating the public about the realities of COVID-19 data. Several national experts will testify on behalf of Ohio Stands Up! Renz and Gargasz will release the extensive evidence that chronicles the case to the public to offer transparency and insight. “The State of Ohio has consistently lied to and manipulated its citizens from the earliest stages of this pandemic,” Gargasz explained. “We insist that this nonsense end, our rights be restored, and that the actual truth be shared.” Recently, the CDC confirmed that 94 percent of the deaths attributed to the virus were from people who had as many as two to three other serious illnesses. The majority of those deaths are individuals 75 and older. Six percent of the deaths are directly from COVID-19, according to the CDC, while at the same time excess deaths have continued to increase due to deaths caused by the what we now know is a minor infection for most. “The entire U.S. economy was shut down based on fraudulent models that predicted 2.2 million American deaths,” Renz said. “The State of Ohio violated the U.S. Constitution with an emergency declaration that ignores the fundamental rights of all Ohioans. As a result, millions of Ohioans are suffering financially, physically, and mentally.” Renz and Gargasz point out that: Hundreds of thousands of businesses are struggling, and many will never re-open.Drug overdoses and suicides have increased as have domestic violence and child abuse cases – directly as a result of the unconstitutional emergency order.|Many Ohioans were unable to get treatment for conditions not related to COVID-19 becausehospitals were closed to accommodate the rush of COVID-19 patients who never arrived.Children are struggling emotionally as many are forced into the continued isolation of remotelearning while two income households must find solutions to manage young children at home.Masks are dangerous, prevent proper breathing, and provide no real protection against thisvirus, according to multiple studies.Families have been barred from seeing their loved ones in hospitals and long-term carefacilities, and residents in long-term care facilities have suffered because of the lack of in-person communication from their loved one.People living alone, of all ages, have been forced into solitary confinement and are dying attremendously increased rates due to loneliness and lack of self-care.The State of Ohio has ignored fundamental Constitutional rights for a virus that is no more dangerous than the seasonal flu. A rapidly growing number of Ohioans recognize this and understand that, if they don’t stand up and speak out, it could be too late because a precedent has been set, according to Gargasz. “There is zero basis for a state of emergency,” Renz said. “Based on what we know about the consequences the emergency order has caused to the physical, financial, and mental well-being of Ohioans, and the vitality of Ohio communities, this is truly a crime against humanity, and it must not be allowed to continue.” The lawsuit is solely funded by donations from Ohio citizens. As of August 30, donations have reached $34,055.
