Soros Water Boy Kasich Speaks At Democrat Convention

John Kasich
“Tell me who you walk with and I’ll tell you who you are” is an aphorism that CHQ Chairman Richard A Viguerie and many other movement conservatives have come to believe through the hard experience of watching establishment Republicans drift ever further to the Left as they surround themselves with inside-the-Beltway mercenaries and Wall Street barons who despise conservatives.

And no one demonstrates the truth of that aphorism better than former Ohio Governor John Kasich.

As our friend Gualberto Garcia Jones, J.D. of documented:

A simple search of Governor Kasich’s 2016 Presidential campaign donations lists the Soros Fund Management as the sixth highest individual donor with $202,700. The seventh largest donor is the Duquesne Family Office with $150,000.  On the Super PAC side, Kasich’s New Day for America received $150,000 from Stanley Drukenmiller (who operates the Duquesne Family Office) and $200,000 from Scott Beset, who is employed by the Soros Fund Management.

Scott Bessent served as George Soros’ chief investment manager until late 2015, while Stanley Druckenmiller currently (in 2016) manages $2 billion of Soros’ hedge funds. Clearly, these three names, George Soros, Scott Bessent, and Stanly Drukenmiller represent George Soros just as New Day for America and Kasich for America represent Governor John Kasich. 

Meaning George Soros, personally and through surrogates, donated over $700,000 to support Kasich’s failed presidential campaign.

We are also old enough to remember when Kasich announced for President he rambled for 45 minutes through his biography and as CNN's Terence Burlij and Tom LoBianco, put it, "Kasich tacked to the left throughout his speech, in a way that no other Republican candidate has this cycle."

After his announcement, our friends at the Club for Growth were quick to take then-Governor Kasich to task for his Obamacare Medicaid expansion:

“John Kasich’s decision to expand Medicaid in Ohio in 2013 was a costly mistake,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “Medicaid enrollment in Ohio has far outpaced Kasich’s projections and more than doubled in cost. The Club for Growth is concluding its research into Kasich’s broader record on issues of economic freedom. But, our presidential white paper on the Ohio governor will, no doubt, warn of the long-lasting consequences from his decision to burden Ohio with an ever-growing price tag for Medicaid expansion.”

And we haven’t forgotten that Kasich told PBS Newshour’s Gwen Iffil, illegal aliens are “a very important part of our society.”

Kasich went on to tell Iffil that apprehending illegal aliens “is not what America is all about” and compare the identity theft, Social Security fraud and other crimes that attend illegal border crossing and working in the United States to “ditching the line” at a Taylor Swift concert.

Indeed, as an alleged Republican candidate for President John Kasich didn’t offer a vision of America that was much different from Hillary Clinton’s, and the policies he advocated weren’t alternatives to Hillary Clinton’s policies; he was for Common Core, amnesty for illegal aliens and Big Government in general.

As Dan McLaughlin of National Review noted recently, Kasich’s opposition to Trump in 2016 was a textbook example of what a failure of political courage looks like. Hardly anyone has less credibility in criticizing Trump today. Out of office two years, not running for anything in 2018 or 2020, Kasich has run out of ways to remain in the spotlight or proximity to power except this one. He will speak on the last platform available to him. Courage, this is not.

So, while Democrats seem to think that by having Kasich speak at their convention and endorse Joe Biden is a major coup, Republicans, and especially conservatives, recognize that Kasich long ago left the Republican Party, it just took him until now to admit it.
