  • Kasich Brags about Getting Elected at 30, Says “Big Guy” Will Say if He Should Run for Prez

    I try to like people, but John Kasich represents a real challenge. The guy really rubs me the wrong way. Somehow, in the midst of all the Tillerson-Pompeo talk, Kasich turned up on MSNBC this morning. Speaking of the special election in Pennsylvania today, Kasich bragged about having been elected to Congress at age 30. That, according to Kasich, makes 33-year old Dem candidate Conor Lamb “a little old.” Kasich made his 2020 strategy pretty clear, saying that the emergence of third parties “is more realistic than it’s ever been.” When host Stephanie Ruhle asked him flat out if he...

    "Today, in the interests of justice and based on recent unforeseen developments that were investigated over the past week, the Office moved to dismiss the case charging Ingmar Guandique with the May 2001 murder of Chandra Levy," the office’s public information officer, Bill Miller, said in a statement. In the statement, the office said it can no longer prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Ingmar killed Levy.
  • Your Feelings Have Nothing to Do with the Second Amendment

    Looking to capitalize on the public whirlwind demanding gun control measures, Ohio governor John Kasich took to Twitter to ask: If all the sudden you couldn't buy an AR-15, what would you lose? Would you feel your second amendment [sic] rights would be eroded? These are the things that have to be looked at and action has to happen. What I'd lose should be pretty obvious. I'd lose the ability to purchase an AR-15 to defend my family, my life, and my home because the federal government has prohibited me from doing so – i.e., infringed upon my right to...

    Toledo, OH – There have been new developments in the effort to close a dangerous and deceptive abortion facility in Toledo, Ohio, that require urgent action by pro-life supporters. After the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that the Ohio Department of Health was within its rights to revoke the Capital Care Network of Toledo’s Abortion Facility License for failing to maintain a local hospital transfer agreement, the abortion business began scrambling to keep its doors open. Capital Care Network (CCN) convinced ProMedica, a Toledo area hospital, to sign a transfer agreement earlier this week to prevent the closure of the abortion...

    Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich said the deadly school shooting on Wednesday should be a rallying moment for the nation on guns, but he predicted Congress would not live up to the task, and suggested the President should take the lead. "Do I think they can do anything on guns? I hope they prove me wrong and they can because I have no confidence in them," Kasich said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "We need leadership out of the executive," he said. "This is a great opportunity for common sense steps that can be taken. ... Mr. President,...

    For months, Univision and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos has been inviting to his shows prospective 2020 Democrat challengers to President Trump. Now, he’s expanded his search to include potential Republican challengers. For his Real America series on the Fusion network, Ramos travelled to Ohio to meet with Governor John Kasich. However, don’t expect Ramos to be endorsing Kasich anytime soon. For starters, Kasich clearly disappointed Ramos when he failed to call President Trump a racist.

    Washington Post ^ | December 25, 2017 | John R. Kasich
    With tensions continuing to build between the United States and North Korea, there’s growing talk by politicians and TV pundits that we are on the brink of war. In truth, we shouldn’t be anywhere close. This increasingly hot war of words — including loose talk about the probability of war — does nothing to bring us closer to where we need to be on North Korea, especially when military options short of war remain on the table. In fact, with millions of lives at stake, waging a war of words is a distraction from the serious task at hand. Any...

    War with North Korea can be avoided if the Trump administration uses sanctions modeled after President Barack Obama's much-excoriated Iran deal and if everyone just avoids "irresponsible" war predictions that risk "millions of lives," Ohio's Republican Governor John Kasich wrote on Monday. Kasich—who battled Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination last year—outlined a plan for stronger U.S. sanctions against North Korea in an opinion column in The Washington Post published Monday evening. He slammed Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina and other politicians for "predicting odds on the probability of war" against North Korea when there is still...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) said on Sunday that the Republican Party is "losing the future" by turning off millennials. "I look at Alabama and I say people are not happy with us being small, angry and narrow," Kasich said on NBC News's "Meet the Press," referring to last week's special Senate election. "They're starting to say no. That means that most of us who believe in a positive party are beginning to win, but we have a long way to go." The Ohio governor also cited stances on various issues, such as immigration, health care and trade, that he...

    A former congressional intern reportedly says she too was a victim of inappropriate sexual contact by now-retired Rep. John Conyers, saying Conyers even claimed during that encounter to have “inside information” on then-missing federal intern Chandra Levy. Courtney Morse, 36, described the incident from 16 years ago to The Washington Post. She said Conyers, D-Mich., mentioned the Levy case when Morse was a college intern for him and the congressman drove her home one night. Morse said Conyers wrapped his hand around hers while it was in her lap and said he was interested in a sexual relationship, the newspaper...

    Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) is planning another run for the presidency in 2020, according to a report from New York magazine. Since losing the nomination in last year’s Republican primaries, Kasich has kept on members of his campaign team who are helping him decide whether to run as a Republican or as an Independent, as he urges the Republican Party to move sharply to the left. “I think we need to be pro-environment,” he told the magazine. “I think we need to completely redo education. … Look, I loved Ronald Reagan. I met Ronald Reagan. But Reagan was then. Now we...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich is plotting his third run for president, a year after he outlasted a crowded Republican field of contenders challenging Donald Trump for the nomination, New York magazine reported. Kasich, who’s term in Ohio ends in 2018, has kept a skeletal campaign staff from last year’s race and they’re helping him decide whether he should pursue a primary run as a Republican or as an Independent in the general election in 2020, the magazine said. He denied he’s “plotting” a run, saying “that’s just not where my head is right now” during an interview Sunday on “Fox...

    Ohio governor John Kasich, the most vocal Republican critic of Obamacare-repeal efforts this year, is pleading with Congress to pass the health-care bill proposed by Senator Lamar Alexander (R., Tenn.) and Senator Patty Murray (D., Wash.). The Alexander–Murray bill follows a template that Kasich and Colorado governor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, began promoting in August: Obamacare’s mandates, regulations, and Medicaid expansion would all remain in place, and Congress would authorize spending to “stabilize” the exchanges. In particular, Alexander–Murray would reimburse insurers for “cost-sharing reductions” Obamacare requires them to provide to certain low-income enrollees. Congress has thus far refused to appropriate...

    Two governors are mulling a bipartisan presidential bid in 2020 to challenge President Trump, according to a new report. Axios reported on Friday that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) are mulling a presidential bid in 2020, with Kasich likely at the top of the ticket. According to a source close to the negotiations, the discussions arose after the two governors got to know each other in conferences after the 2016 elections.

    The governor’s Medicaid expansion has harmed Ohio. Now he’s set to mortally wound the GOP’s repeal-and-replace bill.Ohio governor John Kasich’s public-relations campaign for Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion could wipe out whatever chance remains for Congress to pass a substantial Obamacare-repeal bill. Medicaid expansion puts working-age adults with no kids and no disabilities on a welfare program previously reserved for the elderly, the disabled, children, pregnant women, and impoverished families. It’s responsible for a majority of Obamacare enrollment nationwide, and three-fourths of Obamacare enrollment in Ohio. House conservatives fought for passage of a bill that freezes Medicaid-expansion enrollment in 2020. But some...

    A Kasich run may be just the thing to thoroughly demoralize the Big Business/Big Amnesty/Make Nice wing of the Republican National Committee As Presidential contender, all he wanted to do was make nice and preach hollow niceties all while abandoning conservative principles and pushing a smarmy liberalism that taxes us into oblivion and forcing higher spending. As governor of Ohio, he signed off on conservative reforms, but only because of a hard-core, supermajority Republican legislature. And it looks as if he wants to run for President .... again. Give me a break.
