I posted last night about John Kasich speaking at a Freedom Alliance concert in Cincinnati organized by the same company that employees him as a speaker.

As I mentioned, the concerts are run by Ollie North and Sean Hannity’s sham charity Freedom Alliance that claims to raise money for the family members of injured and killed American service members but actually spends the money on crap like flying Hannity around on private jets.

Kasich’s campaign and his online pals were all over Twitter last night talking about John’s support of the troops while ripping on Governor Strickland for attending the Democratic Party dinner.

The thing is: everyone at the Democratic party dinner knew what they were paying for. It was a fundraiser for the party. But the people who attended the Freedom Alliance concert THOUGHT they were paying 100+ dollars to help support the troops when a big portion of their money was actually going to fly Sean Hannity and Oliver North around in style.

The really fucked up thing is that it is VERY likely a part of that money went to pay John Kasich’s speaking fees for the night while he claimed to be ‘supporting the troops’.

And how much money did John get for this gig?

According to SpeakerWiki.org his rates start at TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS per speech.

You heard that right. $20K. Just for showing up and talking.

Assuming he was paid his normal rate John Kasich just pocketed $20K for doing nothing more than showing up in his own state and giving his normal campaign speech. $20K that was promised to the families of American service members. $20K that a bunch of concert goers THOUGHT was going to help our troops and their families.

I sincerely hope the Republican candidate for Governor isn’t that big of a douchebag. I really do. But from what I’ve seen and heard over the past few months it wouldn’t surprise at all.

    Where do I get a gig like that? I'm an excellent speaker! By the way, did Kasich attend the ORP's annual dinner? If he did, he's being a hypocritical asshole to even mention Strickland being at the Democratic dinner last night.

  • Thank you so much for sharing nice information. I like the way of expression. Awesome post.

    NOTHING surprises us about John Kasich anymore.
    We got the courage to accept the truth about that easily manipulated coward a couple years ago.
    Just try to get him to answer the following question:

    John, as those who you continue to pay and entrust your own children with were secretly recorded saying, do you too believe “before God” that it is “the right thing” to deliberately put thousands of children at “risk” with several repeat child molesters lead into temptation to molest again while deceiving and defrauding the parents about it?

    That question is in regard to the administrators at the private “Christian” school (where John continues to send his own daughters to) and the affiliated church who were secretly recorded saying the following about one of the school’s child molesting Teachers/Coaches (and Youth Directors for elementary-aged children) as reported by the Columbus Dispatch newspaper:

    “We understand that if something happens between Dwayne and a student, we will be big-time liable,”
    executive pastor Jim Augspurger said on the recording.
    “That's a risk we take. I think before God we did the right thing and it may not be the worldly, may not even be the most prudent thing, but it is something we have done,”
    he said.
    “We've wiped the slate clean. I understand the situation it puts us in.”

    After those administrators got caught by the Columbus Dispatch, one of those who participated in that 10-year Conspiracy of Criminal Negligence, Deception, Fraud, and Cover-Ups against we parents (including John Kasich) publicly stated the following (as also recorded):

    “I was a Lead Pastor here for eight years and a Director Of Junior High Youth Ministries in the past. This is a Watergate. The church covered it up. I was in the meetings. I've known all these years that it was a student. And I was told to get back to wiping noses and not to let it out.”

    John Kasich remains silent and refuses to do anything about those serious crimes. John actually continues to send his very own daughters to that private school where those administrators remain in power, remain as a serious threat to unsuspecting consumers, and remain as horrible examples to all students (including John’s daughters Emma and Reese) on how to treat your business customers and your fellow man.

    The truth is that John Kasich clearly does NOT have the courage, integrity, leadership abilities, or the common sense needed to be a suitable Governor for Ohio.

    Please bring these crucial facts about John Kasich and his extremely poor judgments to the attention of Ohio voters.
