This is a simplified version of the facts from Matthew Boyle at Breitbart.
Read his entire report titled, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake Join Dems to Kill Border Security Amendment here.
An amendment submitted by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley requiring the security of our nation’s borders before granting amnesty to at least 25 million illegal aliens, has been voted down by the Senate Judiciary Committee on a 6 -12 vote. Every single Democrat on the Committee voted against the amendment — not surprisingly joined by McCain sycophants and “Gang of 8” Sens. Jeff Flake (AZ) and Lindsey Graham (SC). Democrat Committee members, Sens. Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer are also part of the Gangster group, casting their votes against the reasonable amendment to provide security to American citizens.
The three-page amendment can be read here.
Did you really expect anything more from this compliant trickster? Warning: Read the Breitbart article before you eat.
The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), which has recently called Flake “a coward,” is today extolling his virtues for colluding with the most liberal of Democrats on gifting legal status to those who illegally invaded our sovereign nation. Today he wins the daily’s praise for “fending off key changes” to the amnesty bill.
It’s happened before, as we pointed out in Oops — Jeff Flake’s crown slips as he sinks to mere McPolitician,” when, as an unwavering amnesty-supporting former CD 6 congressman, Flake did an about-face, worthy of an accomplished contortionist, to win conservative votes for the senate seat he so blatantly coveted. At the time, editorialist Doug MacEachern called Flake’s change of heart on legalizing millions of illegal aliens “jarring.” Imagine our surprise as the Republic declared the vacillating Flake to be a mere “politician” — no longer a “statesman” — for emulating John McCain’s border fickleness during his own 2010 senatorial campaign.
It matters not that opposition to the Gang of 8’s $6.3 trillion amnesty bill continues to grow, as evidenced by these quotes from noted conservatives. Flake is keenly aware that his rocky start in the senate could further harm him with the liberal press he needs in order to remain in DC.
As we’ve previously noted, “Such is the duplicity of Jeff Flake. Get used to it or get rid of him before he becomes further entrenched. He already sways like a monkey on a branch.”
Seeing Red AZ has dedicated an entire category to Jeff the Flake for a reason.
