Kasich

1. the only Northern governor executing prisoners.... Kasich has refused to grant clemency 12 times, when he had the power to prevent prisoner murder. Only 7 states executed in the last 24 months.

3. lost several hundred million dollars in Ohio pension funds when he, a Lehman Brothers executive, was involved in Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy. The movie The Big Short is a story of how Lehman, Citi, HSBC, JP Morgan, AIG, Bank Of America etc. were involved in a criminal enterprise. None of them went to jail.

Governor John Kasich of Ohio

1. WAR Former Bush operative Kasich has said in February of 2016 and August of 2015 he would expand the war with American troops on the ground in Syria as well as in returning to Iraq.. He has not decided if he were in the Oval Office if the expansion should first be in Iraq or in Syria. He has publicly supported the illegal immoral wars of the US government since he entered politics.  Ohio is 3rd among 50 states in soldier deaths from the folly.  Kasich advocates further expansion of endless war as he has called for troops on the ground in the Mideast. Republicans in the House and Senate have supported the bombing of SEVEN countries:  Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Yemen.

2. EXECUTION Kasich has killed 12 men in Ohio's death chambers,  is one of 7 serially killing execution governors in the US. 43 governors have not executed, nor have 3/4 of the world's countries.  Kasich is the only executing Northern governor. Neighboring Michigan has not had a state orchestrted murder in 150 years.  He has kept judicial murder going by appointing execution judges.

3. CORRUPTION

A.WALL ST. CORRUPTION:  INCOMPETENCE OR FRAUD AT LEHMAN BROTHERS When John Kasich was in charge of Ohio for Lehman Brothers from 2000 to 2008, he lost hundreds of millions of dollars from the state pension fund to Wall St. profiteers. Was he incompetent or part of a planned fleecing of the public? Lehman Brothers went bankrupt, and Ohio citizens were left holding devalued pensions. As one analyst said, Kasich got rich while Ohio lost hundreds of millions of dollars in the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy.

From Time.com  The question for Kasich: “Were investment bankers like you responsible for the Great Recession?” A reference to the several hundred million dollars John Kasich lost for Ohio pension funds and state funds when after 8 years at Lehman Brothers in charge of Ohio funds, it went bankrupt

B. MERCK  Under Kasich's rule, Ohio's Department of Health has aggressively promoted Merck's killer Gardasil 'vaccine' shich has killed countless young women. In a similar situation in Texas, Governor Perry was defeated by the organized action of Texas citizens.

C.  CHARTER SCHOOL CORRUPTION

Since charter school contracts went to Ohio Republican contributors to G W Bush, the situation has gotten even worse.  The Kasich appointed head of the Ohio Dept. of Education has resigned under news that negative numbers about charter schools were removed by the Kasich administration.

D. Chesapeake's CEO died a day after being indicted for fraud in Oklahoma oil leasing. This fraud occurred in Ohio as well.  See link

4. STEALING FROM SOCIAL SECURITY AND USPS

Kasich claims to have balanced the US budget while in Congress but in reality, he and other Bush operatives in Congress stole from the trust funds of Social Security and the USPS to provide funds for the bombing of Iraq under G H W Bush. Charter schools have been charging new owners for equipment paid for by the state. 40 million dollars is owed to the state by charter schools, heavily promoted by Republicans.

5. EDUCATION CUTS WHILE KASICH APPROVES OF OVER 100 MILLION A YEAR IN ENFORCING REPRESSIVE MARIJUANA BAN LAWS AND DEPRIVING THE STATE OF AT LEAST 70 MILLION A YEAR IN MARIJUANA TAXES.

In addition, because many states have made pot illegal, new artificial forms of pot designed to circumvent the law are killing people.

A. PUBLIC EDUCATION EDUCATION CUTS WHILE KASICH APPROVES OF OVER 100 MILLION A YEAR IN ENFORCING REPRESSIVE MARIJUANA BAN LAWS

Kasich has made cuts to public education, but his 12 executions cost the state millions of dollars each. In education, Kasich has rewarded wealthy privately owned schools while increasing the taxes of the middle class on public schools. There are 2 billion dollars in Ohio's 'rainy day' fund. These monies have been taken from promised support for Ohio libraries, schools, universities, etc..

B. UNIVERSITY BUDGETS CUT  Kasich cut state university budgets. One state university, in violation of federal law, began forcing nonstudent researchers to stand while working on public computers and capped their time per day at 2 hours.

6 SECRECY RE SECURITY DETAIL  Kasich has not told Ohio taxpayers whether or not the people of Ohio
  are paying for his presidential bid security.

7. REPUBLICAN PARTY FRAUD

A. HISTORY Kasich is in office because of the unprecedented fraud of the Ohio Republican establisment whose operatives in 2000 and 2004 were coconspirators in the theft of the presidency from Al Gore and John Kerry. (See the US House report on the 2004 Ohio election and Robert F Kennedy Jr on Ohio election fraud in 2004.) Kasich operatives ran a smear campaign and illegal tactics against his opponent Ed Fitzgerald in his 2nd governors' race. Kasich was part of the Republican ring in Ohio which through voting machine fraud and other fraud stole the election from John Kerry and gave it to George Bush

B  GERRYMANDERING BY KASICH PARTY The extensive gerrymandering in the state by the Republican Party was designed among other things to kick world renowned Dennis Kucinich out of office and to steal the franchise from the people of Ohio.

C. CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY TO DENY FRANCHISE TO OHIOANS Kasich's Ohio Republicans have joined in a criminal conspiracy to attempt to reduce the numbers of Ohio citizens eligible to vote.

D. ILLEGAL SUPPRESSION OF THIRD PARTIES Kasich and Ohio Republicans kept their Libertarian Party opponent off of the Ohio ballot.

E. UNETHICAL CONNECTION TO DIEBOLD AND OTHER VOTING MACHINE COMPANIES

F. CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS New Day for America is the 'nonprofit' organization Kasich allies established to avoid campaign financing law. 

G. HACKING OPPONENTS' FLASH DRIVES, COMPUTERS AND WEBSITES
 Among the many unethical practices of the Ohio Republican Party is the hacking of opponent computers, flash drives, and phones.

H. Republican fraud in Ohio has been helped by corporate media.  WKSU, an NPR affiliate, has gobbled up several other NPR affiliates. It has a many years history of Republican bias.

I. Hamilton County, Ohio covers Cincinnati. It is the county in which Mitt Romney's son bought a voting machine company during his father's campaign for president

8. MASS TRANSIT RAILROADED BY KASICH Since John D Rockefeller I and Harvey Firestone, 2 Ohioans, worked with Henry Ford to destroy the mass transit train system of the US, (Rockefeller also worked to destroy Steinmetz' electric car ideas), petroplutocrats have had unethical power in the state. Kasich was a beneficiary of big oil donations. He sent over 400 million in mass transit money back to Washington, though the people of Ohio had a planned reopening of a railroad from Cleveland to Columbus and Cincinnati. Two other Republican governors, Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Rick Scott of Florida also sent back hundreds of millions of dollars. Scott decided not to run for the presidency and Walker ended his presidential campaign.

9. SHILL FOR MURDOCH'S FOX NEWS Kasich was for years a regular guest of Fox News,  because he publicly supported the positions of Rupert Murdoch.  He also had his own show on the warmonger network. Bill O'Reilly in 2004 selected him as his replacement host.

10. NO NTRANSPARENCY  Kasich would not release the resumes of those he considered for staff and has a poor record in the area of transparency.

11.  LIBRARY FUNDS SLASHED FIVE TIMES Kasich further cut Ohio library funds 5 times. Because of a succession of cuts to Ohio's library systems, many libraries have cut hours.  Akron is typical... library hours were cut at least 16 hours a week.

12.  OPPOSITION TO AFFIRMATIVE ACTION As a representative in Congress Kasich voted against affirmative action.

13 HEALTH CARE Kasich vetoed dental care services for the poor

Doctors performing physicals for applicants for Social Security disability have not been ethical with patients. For example, one veterans prescribed heart medication by the VA, a person who is 81 pounds overweight, is a heavy smoker, and a big consumer of red meat, was told his blood pressure and cholesterol were normal.

Steubenville, Ohio was once listed in an Ivy League university study as one of the most air-polluted cities in the country. Residents still have asthma, lung cancer and black lung. Yet Kasich has sided with the coal companies and utilities (First Energy and AEP) who have besides causing acid rain, harmed the public health.

14 OHIO 45TH OF 50 IN FINANCIAL WELLBEING Under Kasich rule, Ohio is 45th of 50 states in the financial wellbeing of its people.

15  HUNTER DOMINATION OF STATE BUDGET. Kasich made sure that the hunter dominated Dept of Natural Resources received money.In January of 2015, WVIZ, PBS in Cleveland, aired Governor Kasich's Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources and Ohio Division of Wildlife trapping training in which children were taught to drown animals by trapping them underwater in leghold traps which entirely cut off circulation to the foot.  They were then taught to pull up their victims, kill them if still alive, and skin them. The FBI has done numerous press releases on the relationship of childhood violence to animals and its correlation to adult serial killing, domestic battering, and violence in general. Only 4% of Ohioans have hunting licenses, yet Governor Kasich and his staff use citizen tax dollars for this violent programming.  PBS (Public Broadcasting) is soliciting money from the public with which to force this psycopathic programming on all.

His Ohio Dept of Natural Resources has worked to have 6 Cleveland suburbs approve not deer sterilization but deer murder, and not by quick gunshot but extremely painful and often slow arrow deaths from bowhunters.

 The Kasich administration spends state money promoting tv shows such as Wild Ohio on how to skin and cook the cadavers of hunted mammals.   Meanwhile data about Mad Deer in Ohio has been hacked from the internet.

In 2015 children and teens murdered seven thousand deer in Ohio, encouraged by Governor Kasich's Dept of Natural Resources which teaches children using stolen OHio taxpayer dollars how to kill animals. The FBI has found a correlation between serial killer adults and cruelty to animals in childhood.

16 ENVIRONMENT

A. FRACKING. Kasich has through his support of the toxic fracking industry been one cause of several hundred! earthquakes in Ohio in Youngstown and elsewhere.  Poisons spilled into Ohio's rivers.    see link

   
B. FACTORY FARMS  A lack of action to regulate or ban factory farms because of disease to humans such as MRSA and because of animal agony. A Republican governor invited Anton Pohlman to set up factory farms in Ohio after he had been barred from poultry farming in Germany because his nicotinic insecticides nearly killed workers and because of extensive cruelty to animals.  Subsequently one half million chickens were buried alive in Newark Ohio after 9 days without food or water. They sat in tornado-mangled cages, 1 by 3 ft, with 9 birds to a cage.

C. COAL AND NUCLEAR POWER INTERESTS are heavy contributors to Kasich's party and campaign

D. COAL INDUSTRY BAILOUT  Kasich, friend of oil, gas, coal and fracking profiteers, is backing a plan for a coal industry bailout. Presently First Energy and AEP want Ohioans to pay several bilion dollars more over the next 8 years to keep their nuclear and coal plants going.  First Energy's Davis Besse nuclear plant has been shut down several times for boric acid leaks etc.  http://fightthehikes.com

1. ODNR approves yet another coal mine in Ohio

http://carrollconcernedcitizens.org/

E. CONTAMINATED GREAT LAKES AND RIVER WATER... TOLEDO AND SEBRING  CRISES  Kasich was warned of Toledo's critical water situation by the Ohio EPA. He ignored the warning and Toledo residents went 3 days without water. Once again Toledo faces a critical water situation. Lake Erie islands and parts of the shore have been closed to swimming because of both ecoli and phosphate runoff. Rivers in Ohio as well, even more so those near factory farms, have toxins.

F. Kasich's pro petroplutocracy administration has established an environment in which NEXUS, a pipeline company, feels free to abuse eminent domain and citizens in 15 Ohio counties.  See Toledo Blade link below

G. Ohio Dept of Natural Resources encourages children to suffocate fishes. ODNR deforests to produce paper pamphlets showing children how to inflict pain on animals and endanger their own health with fish containing mercury, lead etc.

H. Ohio is not cooperating with EPA about the extent of lead in the many cities' pipes.

17.. PERSONAL HEALTH The reddish cast to Kasich's complexion could be high blood pressure or other factors.

18. DENIES WOMEN'S RIGHTS. 

A. RAPE COUNSELING Kasich signed a bill that rape counselors lose funding if they list abortion as one of many options.

B. HYPOCRISY RE PROLIFE
One controversial issue is abortion legislation. The majority of people favor the right to have a first trimester abortion while opposing third trimester abortions.. Women's rights groups are often on the opposite side of fundamentalist groups and half of Catholics. Kasich has taken a 'prolife' position, while frequently on Fox News supporting the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, bombing of Libya etc in which abortion by bomb has been commited. Kasich and Republicans have placed several new restrictions on abortion.

19 . RUNNING AWAY FROM DEBATE. Kasich was the first Ohio governor in 36 years to refuse to debate his opponent.

20. SMALL BUSINESSES IGNORED. Kasich's jobs program features large corporations and ignores small businesses. Republicans with Kasich's help passed a law that the state auditor could not audit the state funds involved in this program.  Kasich on tv and elsewhere supported NAFTA which siphoned many jobs from Ohio steelworkers and other factories to Mexico.

21. DRIVING RECORD  RECKLESS DRIVING Kasich was stopped by a policeman for reckless driving.                                                          

22. BRUTAL POT ARRESTS DENY CITIZEN RIGHTS AND DIVERT OVER 100 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR TO PUTTING NONVIOLENT FATHERS AND MOTHERS IN JAIL

Kasich has opposed the legalization of pot.  While Colorado saves 205 million a year by taxing pot sales (all states make $ from alcohol sales) Ohio continues to bust family lives and waste money in privacy violating pot arrests.

23 TRAFFIC SAFETY.

A. His administration raised the speed limit on interstates to 70 mph, increasing traffic fatalities,  gas consumption, and deaths of animals on the roads.

B. OHIO CITIES IN TOP TWENTY IN COUNTRY FOR POTHOLES  Cleveand, Akron, Youngstown and other cities with Democratic mayors have not been given help by the state whose Republicans have not used a 2 billion dollar rainy day fund developed by cutting schools, libraries, road repair etc.

C. OHIO BRIDGES ENDANGERED Kasich has not kept Ohio bridges in good repair. In January of 2015, the collapse of a bridge on interstate 75 in the Cincinnati area killed a father of 4.

D. A massive boulder on Rt 52 covers half of highway.

24 OHIO TURNPIKE DEBT. Kasich has inaugurated billions in new Ohio Turnpike debt.

25. PRIVATIZATION OF STATE TAX REVENUE Kasich worked to privatize liquor profits.

26  PRISONS 

A. PRIVATIZATION Kasich worked to further privatize Ohio prisons. One reason that the US is first in the world in percentage of population in prison is the greed of the privatized prison profiteers.

B. OHIO PRISONS ARE A SCANDAL

A prison near Lucasville has had many instances of guard brutality to prisoners.

27 UNNECESSARY BUREAUCRACY. 'Kasich deleted a provision to allow physicians to prescribe non-controlled substances via “ telemedicine” phone calls with first-time patients.'  Source: Columbus Dispatch

28 . BUSH AND GINGRICH OPERATIVE  In Congress Kasich was Newt Gingrich's lieutenant. As chairman of the House Budget Committee, he cut many social programs to make money available for the past tripled debt of Ronald Reagan and the cost of the illegal and immoral Iraq war of G H W Bush.

29 NURSING HOME BUDGETS CUT. Kasich worked to cut nursing home budgets 2400 nurses lost their jobs.

30 DINALI

Kasich is objecting that the highest mountain in the US will go back to its original and native name, Dinali. In 1917 it was renamed Mt. McKinley after a US president who prosecuted an illegal war against the Philippines. If he were living in Zambia, would he insist that Africans continue to use the name Victoria Falls, forced upon them by the invading British?

31 CONSTRUCTION WASTE

 Republican presidents of Ohio's state university have spent billions not on scholarships or reduced tuition but on construction of unnecessary new buildings and stadiums. Many of. these buildings are empty.  Few Ohioans can afford to go to college.

32 NARROW VIEW OF SPIRITUALITY

Kasich spoke at a California debate of the Judao Christian principles, excluding the universal nonviolence of Hindus, Buddhists, Sufis, the hospitality to strangers of Muslims etc.

33 KASICH WANTS TO CONTINUE TO LET HEDGE FUND MANAGERS OPERATE WITH LOW TAXES AND VIRTUALLY NO REGULATION

34 LAST AND DEFINITELY NOT LEAST, KASICH HAS ACTED AS A UNIONBUSTER.

 a   Kasich tried to be a  unionbuster in Ohio, but the people voted against provisions of his SB5 bill.

b. Kasich opposes increases in minimum wage.

35 CHARTER SCHOOLS  The privatization of public schools by Ohio Republicans has been corrupt. 40 schools owe the state 6 million in back taxes.  Many teachers have not been qualified.

36 VETERANS APPLYING FOR DISABILITY

The state has a high percentage of denial of applications for disability of veterans. Some of the examining doctors used by the state seem to be aware that the state wants them to paint a picture of good health.

37  KASICH AND SECRETARY OF STATE HUSTED ...HAVE REMOVED 2 MILLION FROM VOTING ROLLS

38 WORKED TO STEAL PUBLIC ASSETS AND PRIVATIZE THEM.... OHIO TURNPIKE, PRISONS, AND LIQUOR STORES

OTHER REPUBLICAN OHIO GOVERNORS

James Rhodes, ordered the National Guard to Kent State in May of 1970. 4 students were shot to death.

Robert Taft   executed many.

George Voinovich ok'd executions, invited an indicted factory farmer to practice in Ohio, privatized prisons, making his brother a profiteer.

 

39 MORE CURRUPTION BY SECRETARY OF STATE JON HUSTED AND THE OHIO LEGISLATURE IN CONSPIRACY WITH KASICH

BERNIE SANDERS SUES CORRUPT OHIO SECRETARY OF STATE JON HUSTED FOR BREAKING THE RULE SINCE 1981
THAT THOSE WHO WILL BE 18 BY NOVEMBER MAY VOTE IN THE PRIMARIES

Husted has removed TWO MILLION people from the voting rolls,
following Jeb Bush's 2000 example.

Husted has ended same day registration and voting
and has cut down on the days for early voting.

Husted with the help of old Diebold machines was able to flip the marijuana legalization vote and state falsely that Ohioans had defeated the legalization of marijuana.

Husted, the gerrymandered Ohio legislature and Kasich changed Ohio's delegate procedure in 2015 to winner take all.

40 JUDICIAL APPOINTMENTS

Kasich announced on Meet The Press that he had appointed over 100 judges, one to the Ohio Supreme Court. He has been partisan in his appointments and has worked to keep judicial murder continuing in Ohio, the only Northern state executing.

He appointed Judith French to the Ohio Supreme Court. She was endorsed by pricegouging hospitals, animal researchers, big business, chain restaurants serving animal flesh, the gun lobby.

POLICE VIOLENCE

42 WATER ISSUES

The Kasich administration has sought to profit by soliciting the fracking waste water of out of state operations.

Now there are over 600 injection wells for the toxic water in Ohio, as compared to 7 in Pennsylvania and 65 in West Virginia.  The poisoning ot the watershed and continuation of Ohio earthquakes (over 800 in the Youngstown area alone)  have been some effects of Ohio fracking.

Other areas of inaction or toxic action by Ohio Republicans include

a.  the lead in the pipes of many Ohio communities, including Sebring.

b. the attempt of the Army Corps of Engineers to dump toxic waste into Lake Erie

c. the poisoning of Ohio streams with nicotinic insecticide and fecal matter from Ohio's

   factory farms.

d. the lack of effective regulation of fertilizer runoff

e. inactivity re many toxic dump sites from factory pollution

VOLUME 2

Recent Kasich record news

 

1  Among the megacriminals who lost six million people their homes and eight million their jobs in the subprime scandal were AIG, Citi, Bank of America, Lehman Brothers,HSBC, JP Morgan Chase, etc. The movie The Big Short tells the story of the scam which resulted in a balout for billiionaire thieves. Who paid for the bailout? The poor. Those who lost their homes or jobs had to pay a second time from their pittance to bloat the fortunes of the cleptocracy.  One of the operatives of the subprime scandal was John Kasich, an executive at Lehman Brothers, who lost hundreds of millions of dollars from Ohio pension funds. Lehman Brothers went bankrupt on his watch. Rather than going to jail, the criminals were rewarded with 16.8 TRILLION dollars.The Special Inspector General for TARP summary of the bailout reported that the government promised  $16.8 trillion dollars with the $4.6 trillion already paid out. American taxpayers are STILL paying for the criminal bailout.

2. Kasich operatives in the Public Utilities Commission just required the poor of Ohio to subsidize the criminal records of First Energy and AEP. First Energy is a 4 state utility headquartered in Ohio which has for years run a disastrously unsafe nuclear power plant called Davis Besse whose many problems have included a boric acid leak. In addition, the poor have been required to pay 8 billion dollars for First Energy's and AEP's obsolete coal plants which have created acid rain, air pollution, mountaintop mining, watershed poisoning. 

Eight  BILLION dollars in a utility bailout was recently voted by Kasich operatives to these two utilities.

3. Disabled Ohioans have filed a lawsuit against the Kasich administration which would rather institutionalize the disabled than provide community options.

**********************************************************************************

The Boston Globe owned by the
deforesting warmongering New York Times
endorsed attempted unionbuster John Kasich
who sent back over 400 million dollars
in mass transit money to DC He is the
only Northern governor who executed (12 people),
promoter of every illegal war since 1980,
Bush operative, Lehman Brothers executive
who lost several hundred million
dollars for Ohio pensions
yet personally profited
tool of the fracking industry
which has caused 800 earthquakes
in the Youngstown area alone
ineffective steward of the public
health... a state which has
toxic water in Toledo and Sebring.

Kasich tried to privatize the Ohio Turnpike
and has promoted prison privatization.

Kasich through the ODNR allocated money to teach children how to kill animals with bows and arrows or guns.

Note: The Globe declines to give the name of the editorial writer and declines to say whether or not the process is by consensus, majority vote or other in the editorial board.

WKSU

WKSU affiliate of NPR Kent Ohio's Republican radio    

WKSU, affiliate of NPR, has gobbled up at least 4 other NPR stations in Northeast Ohio.  It broadcasts to 22 counties, more than any other Ohio FM station, with promotions for illegal war and muzzling of Democratic candidates.

It is Republican radio, with a Pentagon bent. There are no local talk shows. 

Those who rely on WKSU for Ohio news would not know that Democrat Nina Turner is running against election fraud operative Republican Jon Husted for the post of Ohio Secretary of State.

WKSU has virtually never given voice to the antiwar movement in Ohio or the US

 

Cleveland Convention

Republicans hope the Cleveland convention will help them once again, as in 2004 and 2000 steal another election from the Democrats

Jon Husted, Republican Secretary of State

The current Secretary of State has like Jeb Bush in 2000 in Florida, illegally removed legitimate voters from the voting rolls.

At Cleveland.com a picture of Kasich on the right next to Ed Fitzgerald whom he refused to debate and who was slandered by Kasich's unethical campaign.
