In a “My Turn” article published Thursday in the state‘s largest newspaper, attorney and “community leader” Daniel R. Ortega, Jr. opines on why Sen. Jeff Flake should pull his support of Sen. Jeff Sessions for United States Attorney General.
Ortega repeats stale and long discredited tales intended solely to portray the conservative Alabama senator as a racist, which has become the go-to position of the radical left when attempting to sully an opponent. Disagreeing on issues such as amnesty for illegals, which Ortega slyly refers to as “immigration reform,” or questioning birthright citizenship which has been abused and misinterpreted to the point it no longer resembles its original intent, doesn’t make Sen. Sessions or anyone else an “extremist.”
As a slam aimed at Jeff Flake — and this site has lobbed numerous ones in his direction — Ortega attempts to put Flake in the same Donald Trump supporting “basket of deplorables” that desperate and scandal plagued presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke of before having to fold her political tent. Either Ortega is unaware that Flake refused to support the Republican nominee or simply doesn’t care, if the facts don’t play into his narrative.
Jeff Flake voted to confirm the blatant anti-white racist, terrorist supporting and anti-Semitic Loretta Lynch,* when she was appointed U.S. Attorney General by Barack Obama. Flake was prepared to confirm Obama’s Democrat selectee Merrick Garland to replace conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
John McCain, worried about his reelection to another 6-year term while in his 80’s, cast a nay vote on Lynch. Previously, Sens. Kyl and McCain both voted to confirm Eric Holder as U.S. A.G. Holder began his tenure insulting Americans who put Obama in the Oval Office with his “Nation of Cowards” speech, presided over the bungled Fast and Furious sting operation that placed thousands of weapons in the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels — resulting in the death of Arizona border patrol agent Brian Terry. Holder sued Arizona over SB 1070. He was the first Attorney General to ever be held in contempt of Congress.
Sen. Jeff Sessions is an honorable man who deserves confirmation. Daniel Ortega is hurling buckshot hoping something sticks, though he hypocritically remained silent when the nominee was hate monger Loretta Lynch. He should be ignored.
