Gov. John Kasich (“R”-Ohio) is shopping for contracts with leftist cable news networks for when his tenure in office comes to a merciful end.
“Kasich has signaled to close advisors and some donors that he is looking to sign with either CNN or MSNBC as he finishes his two-term tenure as Ohio’s governor, according to three people with knowledge of the conversations, including two who have been close to the governor since his 2016 presidential run,” CNBC reports.
Kasich, a staunch member of the #NeverTrump crowd, spent less time governing over the past two years than bashing President Donald J. Trump. Kasich is a pro-amnesty “Republican” whose biggest beef with Trump is that Trump wants to secure the southern border. Monday is his last day in office as governor of the Buckeye State.
Kasich has signed with United Talent Agency, who will assist him in finding a new gig. He has frequently appeared on CNN, though in the early 2000’s he hosted a show on Fox News, and even used to fill in for former cable news titan Bill O’Reilly.
“We’re thrilled to work with Governor Kasich as he looks to the future by bringing his unique experience, wisdom and perspective to an even wider array of audiences,” the agency reportedly said.
The two-term governor is reportedly still considering a 2020 presidential bid. One person close to Kasich reportedly said that his interest in a television job does not mean that he has given up is presidential aspirations.
“Very seriously. I’m considering it,” Kasich told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in November. “These are earnest conversations that go on virtually every day with some of my friends, with my family.”
He has often touted the potential for a third-party ticket to reach voters who are “in the middle” of the political spectrum, as if no one has ever had that idea before. Kasich has tried to ride the fence his entire political career, which mostly adds up to selling out his Republican constituency to the political left in the name of “compromise.” The Democrats never seem to return that favor.
“Let’s just say that Donald Trump is nominated and Elizabeth Warren is nominated, and you have this ocean of people who sit in the middle,” he told ABC. “Is there a legitimate opportunity for a third party, bipartisan kind of ticket to be able to – to score a victory or to have a profound impact on the future of American politics?”
Kasich is a twice-failed presidential candidate, having run in 2000 an 2016. Perhaps a third failure will solidify for him the fact that weakness is no longer standard operating procedure for the GOP.

Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.
“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.
Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.
Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
