I don’t think John Kasich knows where he is or what’s going on. I think he’s become a complete idiot. Over this past week he threatened to leave the Republican Party if they didn’t get their act together…………………………..he left the Republican Party on his own when he signed the Medicaid expansion for Obamacare exchanges going against the Tea Party sponsored Health Care Freedom Amendment. He also left the Party once he came under fire for the way he dealt with a tornado that tore through Eastern Ohio. How is he the go-to guy in the Republican Party for how Puerto Rico should be dealt with? And as far as getting things done, Kasich never regained his footing after he lost the SB5 fight. Looking back on it now, even though I met the guy during all that and he looked me in the eye promising he was doing everything he could to support the Tea Party movement, I think he never was a reform minded person. He and his friend on 700 WLW Bill Cunningham was never Tea Party supporters—they were just actors playing the part to get elected. The guy we see today still crying over how he lost the nomination of the Republican Party to Donald Trump is not the same guy I heard at VOA Park back in 2010 speaking to Tea Party groups. Nor was he the same guy who spoke in my back yard at the Carriage Hill Barn the night before the election of 2012 where so many critical issues were decided the next day. He was likely always a loser saying whatever to get elected, but what he is today is clearly a Democrat. He’s no Republican. That is clear.
Because of people like John Kasich, once the warning signs were obvious, the Tea Party that everyone has always been so unhappy about in the establishment made a very key, strategic decision. Yes they attacked candidates like John Boehner openly and it had an effect. Eric Canter lost his seat to a more reform minded candidate and John Boehner left his speaker job to become a lobbyists and make some money while he still could. Many other candidates of traditional establishment have found themselves now looking in from the outside. But that’s not the only success the Tea Party had—the real success was much more permanent. Tea Party leaders ran for State Central Committee seats and started challenging the establishment from the inside out, and after a few years of that they are now running the Party in a way that the newspapers still don’t udnerstand. John Kasich for a lot of us was the last straw. When he went bad people pulled together and made some decisions. That is why Kasich was unable to keep Donald Trump from winning Ohio, because the Party kicked Kasich to the side, even though he was the sitting governor. Kasich lost his power because he turned away from the people who put him in office. He’s not going to leave the Republican Party. He was already removed during the election period of 2016 based on his horrendous performance as a Republican governor. Progressives like him, conservatives do not. The Party moved on without John Kasich.
Now Kasich is the go-to guy on all the liberal network stations. Progressives are hoping with all their chips on the table that John can make a comeback, but there is no chance of that happening. Once Kasich lost people like me, he lost the only people who could give him a platform into politics in the future. He’s done and he won’t be coming back in 2020 as an independent. The world was poised to change, and he pretended he wanted to be a part of that change. When he showed that he wasn’t, we found people who would and that’s the end of the story on Kasich.
When those same Tea Party supporters told me their plan I wasn’t sure it could be done at the time, but the people doing it were ambitious and smart. It took real discipline and tenacity to win all those Central Committee seats. I was asked to be one of them, but I just couldn’t put the time in, but I have been really impressed by how well their plan worked. And it has made a difference in the nature of politics within the Republican Party. This is just the start. Now that it has been successful more people who are of the Tea Party mind are putting themselves in these Central Committee seats and voting with the reformers. Kasich will have even a less chance in two years of doing anything in the Republican Party than he does now, because he is a liar, a cheat, and a wimp. The Party was taken away from Kasich. He didn’t leave it willingly. They aren’t telling people that on CNN.
This is also why Democrats are all flipped out with these radicalized groups they have, like ANTIFA. The old games aren’t working. I’m just going to spell it out for those who don’t keep track of the inner workings of politics, Dinesh D’Souza’s recent book, The Big Lie has obliterated the political left’s foundational tactics. Currently only smart people have read the book and are acting on what has been presented, but over the next eight years the contents will spread into the Democratic playbook and literally destroy all the avenues they’ve used to recruit interest to the Party over the last 100 years. Of course this isn’t D’Souza’s first entry into this kind of thing, but I think The Big Lie is the most damaging to the Democrats. Coming out when it did while Trump is in the White House is a game changer in politics. The book is that good, and that influential. Just like with the Central Committee efforts I spoke about in Ohio, once the smart people get their teeth into something, the change that follows is inevitable. Democrats don’t have similar smart people on their side; all they have ever had is fear to invoke political passions. In this ever-increasing information based society, fear is beaten by knowledge. And people without knowledge cannot beat people with it—even though they may currently outnumber them—stupid people know how to march in the street, but they don’t know how to get themselves organized into something like a State Central Committee takeover. That’s where real party decisions are made and Democrats have stacks of very emotional people who are willing to join together for a fight, but to fight what? They need someone to tell them that and nobody can articulate the issue. Emotional efforts aren’t aren’t working anymore, so they have no more plan B.
That’s why Kasich is now on the outside. It is embarrassing to watch him attempt to position himself for a 2020 run as an independent, or perhaps even as a Democrat. Looking at the Democrats there really isn’t anybody who can challenge Trump in 2020, so Kasich being the kind of guy he is—certainly not a Republican—just a hired gun that turned out to not have any bullets metaphorically speaking, might try to run as a Democrat and he’s setting the stage on CNN. He wants to be president so badly, he is likely considering it. But he doesn’t have the heart to win that fight. He’s a weak person who has made so many people angry that he can’t run from it forever. It’s already caught up to him which is why he looks so oblivious to the reality around him. He’s already a man without a Party. He didn’t make that decision. It was made for him by those who previously supported him.
