It’s Jeff Flake — back to his “bi-partisan” antics. Here he is, hard at work with Democrats and Republicrats to rein in our Second Amendment rights. Flake was also integral to pushing amnesty for illegal invaders as a fixture of the Gang of Eight —- along with John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and a load of other unsavory left wing types. As a member of the U.S. House, Flake labored tirelessly alongside Illinois Democrat Luis Gutierrez promoting amnesty to “turn more red states blue.”
The aptly named and ambitious Flake — with strong Libertarian leanings — has run as a Republican because he knew that provided the direct route to the rarified Club of 100 — the U.S. Senate. As a close Obama associate who has traveled with him to Kenya and Cuba and is a regular basketball playing chum, Flake has honed progressively close Democrat ties. Posing this question to Jeff Flake was met with stony silence.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest intimated Tuesday that Republicans are cowards for opposing Monday’s gun control proposals. Jeff Flake, who the Arizona Republic newspaper denounced as a “coward” for his campaign-related vote opposing background checks in 2013, as it lavished praise on John McCain, who it claims, “did not fail” as “one of just four Republicans who dared follow their conscience on this bill.” McCain was complimented for taking the path “of the maverick once more.”
Now it’s Jeff the Flake who has done a stunning about-face as he shreds Second Amendment protections with proposals that would not have prevented the Orlando massacre perpetrated by an ISIS inspired terrorist who praised Allah in his call to police.
