Ohio Governor John Kasich blocked seven of his critics on Facebook immediately after one of them put forth evidence that Kasich is considering a run for the United States Senate in 2018.
The NeverTrump governor is currently on a national book tour, selling an anti-Trump title called “Two Paths,” which insiders in Ohio say is an excuse to set himself up to run for Sherrod Brown’s Senate seat in 2018 and better position himself for another presidential campaign.
“On Sunday night of last week, I posted a couple paragraphs if you want to call it that, of just some theories I had that Kasich is going to run for Senate,” former Hamilton County, Ohio Trump campaign chairwoman Linda Caudill told Big League Politics. Caudill said that Trump’s Ohio campaign manager Rob Scott also told her Friday night at a Lincoln-Reagan dinner that he thinks Kasich is going to run for the soon-to-be-vacant seat against Republican Treasurer Josh Mandel.
“There’s a lot of evidence…He never took his campaign Facebook down. John Weaver, who is his presidential campaign manager, is still on payroll and still working for him. He has this book out, and he’s basically campaigning. The book is all anti-Trump stuff,” Caudill said. “He could make life really tough for Trump. He could muck things up in the Senate for him and could screw things up in Ohio” with fellow establishment Republican Sen. Rob Portman. Caudill posted the theories on Kasich’s Facebook page.
“The next morning, all of us got blocked,” Caudill said.
Kasich blocked seven of his top citizen critics, who coordinate with each other on Facebook to promote unflattering information about Kasich’s professional past at Lehman Brothers and elsewhere. Kasich blocked: Linda Caudill, Jimmy Cardone, Paul Barrett, Mike Pignatello, Jay Dute, Brian Boyer, and Izz Bogart.
“The reason why I think he blocked us is because if it gets out that he’s running for Senate then the media and everyone else can start bringing out all this negative stuff. I’m the only one who’s been putting it out there. I don’t think he wants that coming out yet. He wants to be selling his book on his Mr. Nice Guy thing right now,” Caudill said.
Caudill said that some of her Facebook posts have focused on the details of Kasich’s career as an executive at Lehman Brothers, where he collected a bonus in 2008, the year the firm famously went bankrupt right before the presidential election during the financial collapse.
As this reporter covered, Kasich used the state party to shut down the Trump ground game during the general election against Hillary Clinton, forcing the Trump campaign to officially split off from the state party just as the “Access Hollywood” scandal — which was promoted by establishment Republicans — dominated the race. Tea party activists and pro-Trump volunteers were forced to band together to win the election in Ohio without the help of Kasich’s state party. It was an uphill battle on a shoestring budget, and it eventually paid off with a solid Trump victory.
Pro-Trump activists recently protested NeverTrump figure Bill Kristol’s appearance at a fundraiser for Ohio’s Cuyahoga County Republican Party, holding Trump signs in the rain as Kristol spoke to the $300-a-plate crowd. The division between Trump-supporting Deplorables and the Kasich machine remains as intense as ever.
“The party brought in [Ken] Adelman,” Caudill said. “Kristol came in. They brought in George Will a few months ago. Six months ago they brought in George Bush. They are trying to build up Kasich’s Republican NeverTrumper base for him, that’s the only Republican base he has. The other Republican people are all in the Trump camp. They don’t want anything to do with Kasich.”
The top five-star review for Kasich’s book on Amazon, by reviewer Mark Jordan, reads: “Ironic that the Trump troops, sent by the Free Republic, writing negative reviews in an effort to drive down this book’s rating, prove one of the Kasich’s primary points, America is divided. People on both sides find it almost impossible to have a civilized discussion and are incapable of finding common ground for the good of the country. All of the negative reviews by people who have not purchased or read the book are exhibit #1 of the country we have become. Thank you, Governor Kasich, for a thoughtful contribution that hopefully will give some people hope. An excellent read.”
Kasich’s gubernatorial office did not return a request for comment for this report.
ANOTHER PHONY? Sen. Josh Hawley Does Nothing to Oppose Big Tech Visa Giveaway for Indian Nationals
Hawley’s silence is deafening.
Yesterday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) was able to pass S. 386 with unanimous consent in the Senate. The legislation is a green card giveaway lobbied for by Big Tech that will flood America with cheap Indian labor and displace native workers.
Lee has been exposed as a lawmaker who is in the back pocket of Silicon Valley monopolists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution:

While it is expected that Lee would completely sell America out, the silence from his colleagues who have claimed to vehemently oppose Big Tech has been far more suspicious. The unwillingness of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) to oppose the measure has caused him to lose credibility among the populist “America First” base.
.@HawleyMO built his entire reputation as the Republican who wants to take on big tech. He couldn't even must up an objection against a bill that gives them a mass amount of cheap labor. https://t.co/nzhHwXtIir

It's been a day and @HawleyMO still hasn't said anything about S. 386. Next time he says he's fighting against Big Tech, don't believe him

@HawleyMO #eGOP dispenses chaff and countermeasures to obscure that he as every other #ControlledOpposition McConnell Senate Cartel #Oathbreaker knowingly allowed #MumbaiMikeLee’s giveaway to #TechLords and foreigners.

Big League Politics reported on how not one GOP senator had the courage to offer opposition to Lee’s big government giveaway to third-world foreigners at the behest of tech corporations who hate free speech:
Utah Senator Mike Lee succeeded in passing legislation in the Senate that would eliminate per-country-caps on recipients of H-1B visas on Wednesday, a policy change that would effectively monopolize the visa system for nationals of large countries such as India.
The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act has been called the greatest corporate welfare program for Big Tech in recent memory. Lee has persistently sought to pass the corporate giveaway, with previous attempts to eliminate per-country-caps being blocked by Democrat Dick Durbin and Republican Rick Scott. Neither Senator objected to the unanimous passage of the modified S386 legislation on Wednesday afternoon.
Big Tech monopolies such as Apple, Google and Microsoft have fervently lobbied in favor of eliminating per-country caps, seeking to replace their American workforces with de facto indentured workers who accept lower wages and worse working conditions. The pervasive use of the H-1B visa in the American technology industry has displaced countless American workers from their careers.
Lee’s giveaway doesn’t specifically raise annual H-1B visa rates, although an increase in numbers of visa workers would be a likely consequence of its enactment. It’s expected that the program will be dominated by Indian nationals in the event that Lee’s HR1044/S386 is signed into law, providing massive corporations with a considerable labor pool willing to work for less in return for an American visa.
The legislation was most recently updated with a provision blocking Chinese nationals from using the H-1B program. This provision appears to have been instrumental in securing its passage through the Senate.
It appears that Hawley is attempting to co-opt President Trump’s movement without offering much of anything in terms of real substance.
