Perennial mainstream media darling and establishment dreamboat Governor John Kasich revealed his latest betrayals to Ohio conservatives on Monday- and they’re both whoppers of the highest order.
Speaking to reporters at the Ohio Statehouse, Kasich confirmed that he would use his veto powers to override not one, but two major conservative policy victories, both of which are set to be passed by both chambers of the Ohio Legislature.
The first piece of legislation Kasich is poised to stop is a pro-life ‘Heartbeat Bill,’ that would prohibit abortions performed on babies with a medically discernible heartbeat in the state of Ohio. Although Kasich has (apparently falsely) billed himself as ‘pro-life,’ this would be the second time that’s he’s nuked legislation that could save “upwards of 10,000 lives a year,” according to Ohio Citizens for Community Values President Aaron Baer. Kasich earlier vetoed Heartbeat Legislation in 2016, explaining that he was simply unwilling to fight a battle on behalf of the pro-life cause against a corrupt judiciary.
Unfortunately, pro-lifers don’t seem to be the only conservatives Kasich is content to take for a ride as he pivots from his final months as Ohio governor to a potential 2020 Republican Presidential campaign challenging President Donald Trump.
Kasich also plans to veto a self-defense ‘Stand Your Ground’ bill, that would give Ohio residents to right to defend themselves appropriately if confronted with a realistic and serious threat to themselves. The legislation would remove language from Ohio’s laws mandating a “duty to retreat” in life-threatening situations.
However, Kasich’s obstruction may not be enough to permanently block these two bills from becoming law. Both passed the Ohio House of Representatives with veto-proof support, and Ohio Republicans have a 24-9 majority in the State Senate. Incoming Ohio Governor Mike DeWine also has signaled support for both policies, making Kasich’s vetoes seem like little more than a temporary irrelevance.
Perhaps Kasich’s focus has never been on permanently stopping conservative policy victories from being enshrined. The Ohio moderate could be looking beyond the end of his gubernatorial tenure, hoping to receive thirty pieces of silver from New Hampshire primary voters.
DC Catholic Archbishop to Give Joe Biden Communion Despite Radical Pro-Abortion Views
Supporting abortion is a mortal sin.
Wilton Gregory, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington DC, announced that he would not prevent Democrat Joe Biden from receiving communion at Catholic churches, regardless of the Democrat’s uncompromising support of abortion.
“The kind of relationship that I hope we will have is a conversational relationship where we can discover areas where we can cooperate that reflect the social teachings of the church, knowing full well that there are some areas where we won’t agree,” Gregory said. “They are areas where the church’s position is very clear,” said the bishop, who is the first African-American cardinal in the history of the church. Gregory was speaking to the Catholic News Service on November 24th.
“I hope it’s a real dialogue, because I think that’s the mantra of Pope Francis — that we should be a church in dialogue, even with those with whom we have some serious disagreements,” Gregory continued.
“It’s not a matter of confusion,” said Gregory. “On my part, it’s a matter of the responsibility that I have as the archbishop to be engaged and to be in dialogue with him, even in those areas where we obviously have some differences.”
Catholic clergy and laity have debated the premise of allowing pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality politicians to receive communion for years, with the issue often dividing more conservative and liberal members of the church.
Wilton Gregory was made into a Catholic cardinal this week in a ceremony in the Vatican. He’s been described as one of the most liberal senior prelates in the American church hierarchy, banning parishioners from carrying concealed weapons as Archbishop of Atlanta in 2014. He frequently assailed President Donald Trump, arguing that pro-American immigration policy deviated from the principles of the Catholic religion.
