John Kasich Takes $700K From Socialist George Soros

Apparently John Kasich will take money from anyone. After finding his campaign unable to finance ads in Utah, Kasich finally got bankrolled $700,000 to keep going — courtesy of none other than George Soros. According to Kasich, he’s just trying to keep Trump below 15 percent in Utah.

“Well, Trump is at 10 percent. He’s not at 15 percent; he’s at 10 percent,” Glenn said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program. “And why, Kasich, are your ads aimed at Cruz?”

That’s a very good question. Another is why would George Soros would give money to a Republican presidential candidate. As usual, Soros is using his money to rig a preferred outcome — and that preference is not likely to be stopping Donald Trump.

“If that was what you were trying to do, you would fund Cruz, you wouldn’t fund Kasich,” Glenn said. “You would fund the guy who actually has a chance of doing it.”

Glenn also shared some behind-the-scenes intel on why Kasich is staying in the race.

“No matter what happens, he’s not getting out because he thinks that he’s Abraham Lincoln,” Glenn said.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: George Soros also is giving 700 — or, gave $700,000 to Kasich’s campaign.

PAT: Yeah. And the article — this appeared in both CNS News and Breitbart and other places over the weekend, even though it’s mathematically — not just mathematically impossible for Kasich to win, he also has to win eight states before he can be considered at the convention, and that’s not going to happen either. I mean, he’s one for 28 right now. He knows.

GLENN: Kasich knows he’s not — here’s the behind the scenes: Talked to several people over the weekend who have spoken to John Kasich. Some of them are his friends. And I’ve said, “What are you doing? What is happening? You’re a friend with John Kasich. Have you talked to him?”

“Oh, yes, I have. Yes, I have.”

“What does he say?”

“He’s not getting out. He thinks he’s Abraham Lincoln.”

PAT: Good golly.

GLENN: Those are his friends.

PAT: I know Abraham Lincoln. You’re no Abraham Lincoln.

GLENN: Abraham Lincoln, so he went to the convention, and it was a contested convention, and he won in like the ninth vote. And that’s how we have Abraham Lincoln: He won in the ninth vote. John Kasich thinks — he’s not getting out. No matter what happens, he’s not getting out because he thinks that he’s Abraham Lincoln.

PAT: So just — it was a simple search of Kasich’s campaign donation list, and they found that the Soros fund management is the sixth highest individual donor with $202,700.

GLENN: What does that tell you?

PAT: Seventh largest donor is the Ducane HEP Family Office, with 150. The super PAC side, Kasich’s New Day for America received 150,000 from Stanley HEP Druckenmiller, who operates the Ducane family office. All of these, you know, employed by the Soros Fund Management Team.

So he’s — all together, if you add it up, it’s $700,000 from Soros people. Soros and his surrogates giving to the Kasich campaign. What is that about?

GLENN: Soros — so you know, Kasich couldn’t run ads in Utah. Suddenly, he finds enough money to run ads in Utah. And he says, “Hey, I’m just trying to keep Trump under 15 percent.” Well, Trump is at 10 percent. He’s not at 15 percent; he’s at 10 percent. And why, Kasich, are your ads aimed at Cruz?

PAT: Yeah, you would think they would be aimed at Trump.

GLENN: He is going after Cruz, and he’s being a surrogate for Donald Trump. Now, I don’t know how the Soros thing works and what Soros — what game Soros is playing, other than trying to keep Cruz out.

PAT: Yeah. And they’re saying he’s trying to keep Trump out. I doubt that.

GLENN: Who, Soros is? I don’t think —

PAT: I think it’s likely he’s trying to keep Cruz out.

GLENN: If that was what you were trying to do, you would fund Cruz, you wouldn’t fund Kasich. You would fund the guy who actually has a chance of doing it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I don’t know, but I know this: Soros like the imams over in Iran, like the — the people over in Europe that are — what is it, The Coming Insurrection people, like Occupy Wall Street, like Black Lives Matter, they all want one thing, and that is chaos.
