Jeff Flake flakes on conference call

The scheduled 7:00 a.m. opportunity to dialogue with Jeff Flake, Arizona’s junior senator and member of the pro-amnesty Gang of 8, was a bust.

Although his constituents were provided a toll-free call-in number (1-855-428-0808) and ID (# 6224561**) to access the town hall, what we got instead was canned elevator music and ultimately — after at least 15 minutes — a message that informed those who dialed in that “the host” had failed to show.  That was followed by a disconnect. Many tried again, receiving the same message after another extended wait.

Disheartened to be dumped so soon after his many pre-election promises, calls were made to his offices.  Imagine being told that not only did this practiced political suitor dump us, but also the ranchers along Arizona’s southern border he actually intended to talk with.

Ranchers are no pushovers, honing their skills with both the illegal criminals and the liars in Washington on a daily basis — and can’t be happy with this arrogance, either.

But election season is over and won’t return for nearly 6 long years. Jeff Flake’s politically expedient reversal on border policy which exposed him as McCain‘s astute protegé is no longer needed.  Talking with those who are enraged at his deceit makes no sense from his perspective.  He’s moving on with the Democrats and RINOs.

Still, as we waited on the line, there was satisfaction in knowing this truth: Flake is as good as his name and voting record.

    Let it be known I never voted for jeff flake he hasn’t changed. you, the voter, just thought he did or would. nauseating him and his family. they think they can do political harm to our children and think it not a crime.

    Jeff Flake is the most appropriately named member of congress. After spending years around the political arena, I’m not often shocked by politicians, but Flake’s deceit reaches new levels of sliminess. Not showing up for what he knew would be a confrontational conference call tells more about his lack of character than anything I can say. We pay his salary! The least he could do (if he cared to be bothered) is take the heat for his blatant dishonesty. Maybe even try to explain it. But he knows, as we do, that there is no palatable explanation. Running a campaign based on lies results in more of the same. Flake was my congressman before being elected to the senate. He was a liar then and is worse now. I look forward to supporting his opponent.

    I tried calling this morning when flake flaked. he probably figured out it wasn’t the proper people calling him.

    I did call his office today to give them an earful. the person answering the call was not very happy and was very terse and rude. i’m guessing the calls coming in are not very favorable to him selling out the citizens, the party, and the country to illegal foreign invaders, special interest and lobbyist.

    we MUST not forget his actions and replace him, it will be tough. he will have loads of rove/rnc money as payment for selling us out.

    I sure wish the azgop had our back on this, unfortunately Robert graham is also a tool of rove and the rnc. he too needs to go and it cannot be soon enough.

    those of us working with the urapc movement against oBrewercare need to continue to stay organized to work against those who work for our destruction in future elections.

    I will not vote for or make ANY effort for any candidate that supports amnesty of any sort, no matter what race they are in or who it is against.

    I will not support anybody who is trying to destroy the party and the country just because they have an (R) by their name on a ballot. In fact I will actively work against them.

    And lets not parse words, if it is not repatriation, it IS amnesty.

    huge numbers of Republicans agree:
    ” among Republicans, the issue elicits much more passion, none of it good for immigration-reform advocates within the GOP. Nearly half, 49 percent, said lawmakers who back a proposal offering a pathway to citizenship will lose their support. Only 15 percent said it would make them more likely to back their incumbent”

    if you are like minded call the reps and senators and tell them exactly what you think of this party and country destroying amnesty.

    • Kent says:

      I’ve called them all except McCain. He’s a demented, lying, Democrat conspiring lost cause.

      • pcrcPC says:

        keep calling, call everyday. the dem activists have orders to call no less than five times a day. we need to drown out the liberal callers

    • eubykdisop says:

      After the phone calls, emails and faxes Flake has been getting from me, I’m not surprised that he flaked out on the conference call! ;-)

  4. Matt DeGennaro says:

    John McCain got a load of negativity at the Townhall meetings he conducted statewide. Even after Arizona taxpaying citizens told him exactly what they thought of the amnesty garbage he’s peddling, he turned to a reporter who thrust a mic under his lying lips and said they had told him the exact opposite. The fact that the people who pay their salaries are enraged over legalizing invaders means nothing to these arrogant and pompous asses. The Flake learned his haughty and dismissive tactics from this egotistical old goat. They all need to be shown the door.

  5. Army Of One says:

    Those who voted from this McClone got what they deserve. The rest of us are stuck. I’m a conservative and will never vote for Flake.
    I’d rather be shafted by a Democrat any day of the week than by a Republican poser. I EXPECT to have a Democrat work against Republicans. That’s not what I imagine any Republican would do.

  6. Clark says:

    I tried to get in on the call as well with no luck. Amazing. Cowards.

  7. LEO IN TSN says:

    I too am still waiting for McGraham & his CoC – ooops, I mean AZ GOP – staff to take a public stand on ANYTHING.

    Have they all just run away from home and left the offices empty?

    Maybe a few calls to McGraham would be in order. Maybe he’s just waiting for a little guidance from the little folk.

    God bless America.

    • State Committeeman says:

      I doubt Robert Graham wants to hear anything but accolades, Leo. I’m a conservative and a state committeeman who believed what I was told from those I trusted regarding the Republican state chairman’s race. I voted for Graham. I now realize I was given faulty advice. Graham’s job includes guiding the party, not merely fundraising. He can hire professionals who have that background. He did not run for fundraiser, but for AZ GOP Chairman. I would like to hear something of substance on the issues of importance. To me and many others the key issue facing our state, our country and our economy is the effort to legalize those invading our country. Arizona is a major portal for this criminal activity and yet we have our two US Senators working in cahoots with the Democrats (who benefit mightily from their efforts) in league with the left and disregarding the loud Republican voices in opposition to this outrageous effort in which they are engaging.
      I’ve not heard a peep from Mr. Graham. Have you? We might as well have elected Pinocchio.

      • pcrcPC says:

        and if you ever call the azgop you often get the incredibly rude lady that argues with you and tells you principles and the the platform be damned its all about getting money from the rnc.

        so under graham the republican party is simply for sale to the highest bidder.

        that’s not what I signed on to

      • SuzanneC says:

        LOL, Leo and State all you do is the same thing, complain about Robert Graham. Robert gave an interview stating he is against amnesty, but then you have a problem with that too. Yes, Pinocchio, is exactly what you tried to do with the other guy. Someone who had financial problems and has never raised a dime, but according to you that is again what we should have elected.

        Then we hear how the Democrats do not fight in public, but then you call for that, shall we say hypocrite.

      • eubykdisop says:

        LOL, SuzanneC all you do is propagandize for Graham while ignoring the legitimate concerns of Republicans. You also claim to work at GOP headquarters. You must be the rude lady on the phone. Maybe we need to get you fired.

    SuzanneC:

    1 – Robert Graham chose, as Executive Director of the Arizona Republican Party, Chad Heywood who served as Director of Outreach for illegal alien amnesty stalwart, Congressman Jeff Flake.

    2 – Robert Graham chose, as Chief of Staff of the Arizona Republican Party, Gretchen Conger Martinez who served as Director of Government Relations for the illegal alien supporting Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

    3 – Gretchen Conger Martinez also served as Legislative Intern to Governor Jan Brewer and, in her capacity as Director of Government Relations for the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, actively supported and promoted Brewer’s expansion of Medicaid.

    “For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out, at the old ball game.”

    • SuzanneC says:

      Euby, please tell me has any policy changed? No, I thought not. Lets see Gretchen is a fund raiser, Chad is operations, DUH, no policy changes. But that is not what you are looking for, I keep forgetting, you want to fight in the open, then comment on how well the Democrats get along. No they don’t but they have the ability not to drag each other through the mud unlike you.

      But yes you can call me a propagandist, take a look it is always the same two who want Robert to openly fight with whoever they do not like. What is going to happen when he comes out against someone they support?

      • Clark says:

        Why do you continue to make excuses for Graham? Has he promised you a position when he runs for Governor?

      • eubykdisop says:

        SuzanneC:

        You always come back with the same mantra, “…has any policy changed”, which simply proves that you are DEAF to the concerns of Republicans and THAT is the biggest problem with the current leadership of the AZ GOP! You want to tell US what the issues are and what the issues should be. You have it backwards. Republicans will tell the leadership what the issues are and what the issues should be!

        We don’t care whether or not policy has changed. That is YOUR issue, not ours! Here are some of OUR issues:

        1 – Robert Graham chose, as Executive Director of the Arizona Republican Party, Chad Heywood who served as Director of Outreach for illegal alien amnesty stalwart, Congressman Jeff Flake.

        2 – Robert Graham chose, as Chief of Staff of the Arizona Republican Party, Gretchen Conger Martinez who served as Director of Government Relations for the illegal alien supporting Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

        3 – Gretchen Conger Martinez also served as Legislative Intern to Governor Jan Brewer and, in her capacity as Director of Government Relations for the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, actively supported and promoted Brewer’s expansion of Medicaid.

        Those are grossly inappropriate appointments which not only do not reflect the values and positions of Republicans but which actually reflect the values and positions of liberal Democrats! These are inexcusable, intolerable appointments by Graham and he WILL pay the price for it! Promise!

        SuzanneC wrote: “…they have the ability not to drag each other through the mud unlike you.”

        Stating the facts and the truth is not dragging someone through the mud. It’s called “accountability”. Choices have consequences and as a registered Republican I not only have a right but I have a duty to publicly call out grossly inappropriate behavior on the part of the Chairman.

        This is STILL America where we don’t have to be silent because some party apparatchik like you wishes it to be so and we are not compelled to follow the code of omerta to protect the Chairman.

  9. Hagar says:

    Is any one really surprised that Flake was a no-show? He’s one of the most disgusting pieces of manure this state has elected in a long time. Others on the bipartisan list include Kyrsten Sinema, Raul Grijalva, Jan Brewer and John McCain. If Graham thinks he’s going to be governor he had better re-evaluate.

    • eubykdisop says:

      Graham has demonstrated that he is unacceptable as a gubernatorial candidate by virtue of his appointments of Heywood and Martinez.

      In the case of Martinez, there is a smoking gun. As Director of Government Relations for the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Martinez actively supported and promoted Brewer’s Medicaid expansion. Martinez worked against the will and wishes of the majority of Republicans and Graham rewarded her for that by appointing her to be the Chief of Staff of the Arizona Republican Party.

    • pcrcPC says:

      there should be no legalization of status of any sort for any illegal.

      far too many people are saying some normalization of status is ok.

      IT ABSOLUTELY IS NOT.

      repatriation and the rule of law is demanded.

      that is the message we need to be sending to the legislators.
