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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
