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.

TRUMP: The twilight hour of socialism has arrived

Joe Raedle/Getty Images

The other day, at Florida International University in Miami, facing large American and Venezuelan flags, President Trump gave a rousing speech in Miami, including this line, the "twilight hour of socialism has arrived."

Trump went on to say:

Socialism is about one thing only—power for the ruling class. They want the power to decide who wins and who loses, who's up and who's down…and even who lives and who dies.

He then repeated a phrase that helped define his State of the Union address this year:

America will never be a socialist country.

Fittingly, Fox News posted an article yesterday exposing the overlooked evils of Che dangers of socialism that all too often disappear behind a flashy design on a t-shirt.

  1. Guevara said he killed people without regard to guilt or innocence. In an interview, Guevara said, "in times of excessive tension we cannot proceed weakly. At the Sierra Maestra, we executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation; it has the obligation to triumph."
  2. Humberto Fontova, author of "Exposing the Real Che Guevara," told Fox that Guevara created system that put gay people in labor camps. "The regime that Che Guevara co-founded is the only one in modern history in the Western Hemisphere to have herded gays into forced labor camps."
  3. Guevara opposed a free press: "In 1959, leftist journalist José Pardo Llada reported that Guevara told him: 'We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press. Newspapers are instruments of the oligarchy.'"
  4. Guevara made racist statements: Guevara went on to write: "the black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving."

These are just some of the many historical examples of the failure of socialism. President Trump is right. If the frivolities of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Saunders catch on and spread, we could have an unbelievable problem on our hands.

Poor Jussie: His narrative is falling apart completely

Here's how the media works now: Find a story that confirms their narrative, run it constantly and relentlessly. When the real story comes out, minimize exposure of the correction. Repeat.

We're seeing this pattern play out over and over again.

Here are some of the knee-jerk reactions that the media had to this Jessie Smollett hoax, from Insider Edition, CNN, E! News, Headline News, CNBC, TMZ, to name a few:

And those are just the reactions on TV. It was just as bad, at times worse, in print and online. I'll give you one special example, however. Because, you know the situation is bad when TMZ is connecting the dots and seeing through this guy's story:

The sources say there were red flags from the get go. Cops were extremely suspicious when Jussie took them out to the area where he said he was attacked and pointed to an obscure camera saying how happy he was that the attack was on video. Turns out the camera was pointing in the wrong direction. Cops thought it was weird he knew the location of that camera. And there's this. We're told investigators didn't believe the 2 alleged attackers screamed 'This is MAGA country' because 'Not a single Trump supporter watches 'Empire.''

Here's the man himself, in an interview just days after the alleged beating…I'm sorry, the alleged "modern day lynching." Here he is in an interview with ABC News, complaining about people making up stuff:



Strong words, spoken by a man who, allegedly, created the whole narrative to begin with.

This compromise is an abomination

Zach Gibson/Getty Images

Three decades ago, "The Art of the Deal" made Donald Trump a household name. A lot has happened since then. But you can trace many of Trump's actions back to that book.

Art of the Deal:

In the end, you're measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish.

People laughed when he announced that he was running for President. And I mean that literally. Remember the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner when Obama roasted Trump, viciously, mocking the very idea that Trump could ever be President. Now, he's President.

You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.

This empire-building is a mark of Trump.

RELATED: 'Arrogant fool' Jim Acosta exposed MSM's dishonest border agenda — again.

The most recent example is the border wall. Yesterday, congress reached a compromise on funding for the border wall. Weeks of tense back-and-forth built up to that moment. At times, it seemed like neither side would budge. Trump stuck to his guns, the government shut down, Trump refused to budge, then, miraculously, the lights came back on again. The result was a compromise. Or at least that's how it appeared.

But really, Trump got what he wanted -- exactly what he wanted. He used the techniques he wrote about in The Art of the Deal:

My style of deal-making is quite simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I'm after.

From the start, he demanded $5.7 billion for construction of a border wall. It was a months' long tug-of-war that eventually resulted in yesterday's legislation, which would dedicate $1.4 billion. It would appear that that was what he was after all along. Moments before the vote, he did some last-minute pushing. A national emergency declaration, and suddenly the number is $8 billion.

Art of the Deal:

People think I'm a gambler. I've never gambled in my life. To me, a gambler is someone who plays slot machines. I prefer to own slot machines. It's a very good business being the house.

In a rare show of bipartisanship, Senate passed the legislation 83-16, and the House followed with 300-128. Today, Trump will sign the bill.

It's not even fair to call that a deal, really. A deal is what happens when you go to a car dealership, fully ready to buy a car, and the salesman says the right things. What Trump did is more like a car dealer selling an entire row of cars to someone who doesn't even have a licence. When Trump started, Democrats wouldn't even consider a wall, let alone pay for it.

Art of the Deal:

The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration—and a very effective form of promotion.

He started the wall on a chant, "Build the wall!" until he got what he wanted. He maneuvered like Don Draper, selling people something that they didn't even know they wanted, and convincing them that it is exactly what they've always needed.
