Generosity comes easy:

For Betsy, it does not hurt her to give back like it might to others. She was brought up a giver, a trait that few people in this world have and, have a hard time developing. Having donated to millions of people, it safe to assume that Betsy has earned the right to brag and boast about it, yet she chooses to stay humble and work to make a change in the world. Through her philanthropy and kind heart, Betsey is an inspiration and a role model to many.

Kasich Campaign Receives Peculiar Donation That’s Raising The Brows of The Democratic Party

Approximately bloomberg.com reported half a million dollars is hardly an extravagant amount of money in the ritzy world of professional politics but it is certainly nothing to scoff at either. This is important to note because it was the same amount the political action committee, New Day For America recently received. But what is really noteworthy is not the sum of money which was attributed to the political fund but rather whom the previously mentioned super PAC and who cashed in for the donations it received.
It turns out that the New Day For America super PAC belongs to none other than current governor of Ohio and presidential hopeful, John Kasich and that the donations where made out by two rather obscure individuals named Scott Bessent and Stanley Druckenmiller. What is really interesting here is that both Bessent and Druckenmiller work for multi billionaire hedge fund manager and philanthropist, George Soros. Once word of the donation broke it had many in the Democratic party scratching their heads and with good reason, that reason being that Mr. Soros has been a longstanding defender of liberal principals and a great boon and ally to the Democratic party. In attempting to further aid the Democrats Forbes billioanire George Soros has gone so far as to donate eight million dollars to the Hillary R. Clinton campaign, distributed between two different super PACs. So why on earth would such a man aid Kasich, a well known classical conservative.

The exact answer to such a question remains completely unknown given the lack of, as yet, any explicit public statements from either George Soros, Bessent, Druckenmiller or Kasich or any member of his staff. But there is speculation aplenty, some of it deranged and ridiculous and some of it quite reasonable. One of the more reasonable suppositions is that Soros, who is a staunch defender for, what he calls a “open society” (less defense and deliberation on border security and easier access to legal American citizenship) is “playing both sides” or “hedging his bets” if you will. And he is doing this, speculations says, due to the fact that Kasich is far closer to the Democrats in regards to his take on border security, immigration and access to citizenship. Thus Soros funding him seems like a clever move to further the odds that someone pro-immigration (or at least not outright anti immigration) will make it into the White House.
