Trump hater Jeff Flake titillates his own ego
Jeff Flake, Arizona’s RINO underling to maverick mentor John McCain, .traveled to New Hampshire Friday to strut his stuff. The state’s significance is not lost on political observers since it hosts the first-in-the-nation primary.
Delusional Flake says he’s not ruled out challenging President Donald Trump, either in the Republican primary or as a Independent if no one else takes on the president in 2020. Trump, a political outsider, spectacularly won the GOP nomination over 16 other GOP presidential candidates — far more intelligent and experienced than Flake — as he waged a precedent shattering campaign that defied political critics.

Flake, who reneged on his pledge not to run for more than three two-year terms when elected to the U.S. House in 2002, has polled so low — carrying an 18% approval rating — that he was forced to withdraw from a second senate term in order to avoid a demoralizing embarrassment. Conservative Review gives Jeff Flake a big, fat “F” listing him as Number 2 on a list of 25 RINOs.
“I stand before you today, the rarest of species, the American conservative,” — translating his personal concept of conservative to “Americanus NeverTrumpus,“ — Flake told the sparsely filled room of Democrats and establishment Republican business execs at the Politics and Eggs breakfast at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics. Not surprisingly, they greeted him with a standing ovation.
Libertarian Flake has never been a conservative, though he likes to bandy the term around when it suits his agenda, which is open borders with amnesty and eventually voting rights for the illegal invaders he treasures above American citizens.
The only jobs Flake has ever held outside of feeding at the political trough, were as a registered foreign agent in the African nation of Namibia, lobbying for Rossing Uranium, a mining company with ties to Iran — and a stint working for the Goldwater Institute in Phoenix.
The Goldwater Institute is Libertarian, not conservative. It took no official position on the so-called “medical” marijuana issue which unfortunately passed in the state. Neither did it take a position on the disastrous minimum wage hike that actually caused many low wage workers to lose their jobs when their small business employers were forced to reduce their staff when salaries were artificially and incrementally hiked.
Barry Goldwater, known as ‘Mr. Conservative,’ actually fell far short of that standard as he endorsed a liberal Democrat in a congressional race over a Christian conservative, and with Peggy, his wife of 51 years, founded Planned Parenthood of Central and Northern Arizona. The Peggy Goldwater Award, remains one of the abortion group’s most prestigious awards. The Goldwater’s counted eugenicist and racist Margaret Sanger (video) among their friends.
We hope 18 percenter, Never-Trumper Jeff Flake runs. Donald Trump won overwhelmingly. He keeps his base close by keeping his campaign promises, which is more than the aptly named Flake has ever done. President Trump’s appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court was stellar. Let’s not forget Flake busied himself introducing Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s choice for the high court, to members of the senate Judiciary Committee.
Trump won, and within his first year racked up this “Shockingly long list of accomplishments.”
Flake has nothing to point to but his peroxide streaked hair, inane grin, capped teeth and a ghost written, slim book with a title, “Conscience of a Conservative,” directly stolen from…..Barry Goldwater’s 1960 book.
