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.
Anti-Trump RINO Nancy Mace Supports Retooled ‘Equality Act’ in Attempt to Dupe Conservatives
Mace is a disgrace.
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) is supporting a watered down version of the Democrats’ “Equality Act” in an attempt to dupe Republicans into supporting the anti-conservative social justice legislation.
Former Delaware senate candidate Lauren Witzke is drawing attention to Mace’s latest sell-out as she attempts to drive the GOP away from Trumpism:
The Equality Act must be destroyed, not repackaged into a decorated word salad so Republicans can digest it @NancyMace.
It’s not too late, END this NOW.
— Lauren Witzke (@LaurenWitzkeDE) March 3, 2021
“RINO low IQ idiot, Congresswoman Nancy Mace is trying to repackage the Equality Act so the Republicans can pass it without getting backlash,” Witzke explained in a post on Telegram. “Same policy, different wording. Leave it up to republicans to raise the worst bill in U.S. history from the dead instead of lighting [its] corpse on fire.”
“I strongly support LGBTQ rights and equality,” Mace told me. “No one should be discriminated against.”
Mace made it clear that helping trannies become mainstreamed in society as they push to convince little children to change their birth gender is a priority of hers.
“It isn’t a black-and-white issue,” she said, “I do believe that religious liberty, the First Amendment, gay rights, and transgender equality can all coexist. I’m also a constitutionalist, and we have to ensure anti-discrimination laws don’t violate First Amendment rights or religious freedom.”
“I have friends and family that identify as LGBTQ,” Mace added. “Understanding how they feel and how they’ve been treated is important. Having been around gay, lesbian, and transgender people has informed my opinion over my lifetime.”
Mace wants to give LGBT members additional special privileges so she can receive plaudits from the mainstream media, even if it may be completely opposed to the long-standing principles of the GOP.
“There can be that balance,” Mace insists. “The Fairness for All Act … do[es] just that,” she offered. “We put in protections for religious liberty.”

Big League Politics has reported on how Mace threw Trump under the bus as she denied the existence of voter fraud in last year’s election:
Freshman Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-SC), who ran as a pro-Trump Republican to obtain Congressional office, has emerged as the most vicious Never Trumper in the chamber.
Mace is leading a purge against her colleagues who opposed the certification of dubious electoral college results last week. Mace even wants the deep state to investigate one of her colleagues in what is an egregious violation of her colleague’s 1st Amendment rights.
Mace first attacked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a freshman pro-Trump lawmaker who has received frequent attacks from the fake news media. Mace repeated debunked talking points that Greene is a member of the QAnon movement, whose adherents were involved in last week’s Capitol siege.
“I’m disgusted by what you and other Q-conspiracy theorists did last week in the chamber after all of the violence,” Mace is reported as saying on a text thread featuring freshmen GOP lawmakers.
After Greene mentioned Black Lives Matter terrorism and told Mace “don’t believe the fake news,” Mace responded back with a rude, catty and unprofessional quip: “Literal QAnon lady trying to deny she’s a QAnon lady.”
… Mace is not content on merely insulting pro-Trump reps. She actually wants the deep state to investigate her pro-Trump colleagues and potentially charge them for supporting the president’s rally last week.
Mace is making even Dan ‘McCain 2.0‘ Crenshaw look good by comparison. The Trump-led GOP should consider putting her scalp on the wall so-to-speak during next year’s primary elections.
