McCain and Flake deserve Senate phony’s award

AZ U.S. Senators hypocritically praise Pres. Trump’s SCOTUS pick, though if they got their way during election, we’d be faced with a permanently leftist skewed high court

Who can forget sanctimonious hypocrite John McCain taking to his high horse and withdrawing his brief support from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump? McCain, who previously referred to Hillary as a rock starhe could support, also declared he and his wife Cindy would not vote for Trump. Vacuous daughter Meghan followed suit.

Jeff Flake, Obama’s basketball teammate and traveling companion, not only refused to get on board with our nominee, but rogue Flake went before any MSM camera placed in front of him to undermine Donald Trump, declaring, “I don’t expect that I will be able to support him (Trump) in November….I just don’t see how I can.”

He didn’t.

Now the duplicitous duo of amnesty supporters is heaping praise on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch.

If it had been up to either of these Hillary cohorts, we’d be looking at liberal nominees in the mode of former ACLU chief counsel, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, admittedly no fan of the U.S. Constitution, appointed by Bill Clinton, as was Stephen Breyer.

Leftists Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, a White House policy adviser to Bill Clinton and later Obama’s Solicitor General — were both Obama appointees.

As McCain and Flake enthuse over Judge Neil Gorsuch, remember what we would have had if either of these Republican pretenders got their way and Donald Trump, who they sabotaged every step of the way, had not been elected President.

The disgraceful Arizona senators deserve the award of shame for their blatant hypocrisy.

Here are a few of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices and the AZ senators votes:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Roll Call vote. McCain voted aye in tandem with Democrat AZ Sen. Dennis DiConcini on confirming this radical appointee.

Stephen Breyer:  Roll Call vote. Again, McCain and DiConcini both voted aye for the Democrat.

Sonia Sotomayor: Roll Call vote.  In an out of character move, McCain and Kyl both voted nay on confirmation of Democrat although she was the first Hispanic woman appointed to the high court.

Elena Kagan: Roll Call vote McCain and Kyl each voted nay on confirmation. Apparently her partisan political background was too much for them to even split their votes.

David Souter (ret.): Roll Call vote. Once again, McCain voted aye with Democrat AZ Sen. Dennis DiConcini. Souter, a nominal Republican appointed by George H. W. Bush, turned further left as a justice. He retired not long after Obama was elected, calculatingly allowing him to appoint Democrat Sotomayor as his successor.

    Here’s our claim to fame Arizona. You voted for him – helping AZ turn blue. Otherwise, he’d be gone by now.

    McCain emerges as Trump’s top Republican nemesis in Congress

    He will be 86 when his new term ends, making him one of the oldest- and longest-serving members of the Senate.

    When the so-called representatives of American citizens (Senate and House members) go to Washington, they become arrogant and unresponsive. Worse, they think we have no awareness of their votes since we are yokels living nearly 3,000 miles from their seats of power,

    I was never previously a fan of term limits, but I am now. Seniority has given us the entrenched lightweight John McCain. We must get rid of Jeff Flake as a freshman senator, or he’ll be a McCain replica. First termer Flake’s arrogance is already appalling.

  3. Saguaro Sam says:

    I liken what Obama and Congress have done over the past 8 years as similar to what Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman and his Union soldiers did to the people of Georgia.

    Check out Sherman’s March to the Sea. His plan was to punish the citizens of Georgia by pillaging and burning everything in his path.
    The purpose was to convince the people of Georgia to abandon their support of the Confederate government.

    Ironic that Obama would (probably unwittingly) use a game plan of a white Yankee Civil War General.

    McCain and his various “gangs” have committed traitorous acts against America by sitting on their hands doing nothing to stop Obama. And now,

    Now we learn that Obama made a deal with the very leftist Prime Minister of Australia to take over a thousand Muslims which Australia has placed in detention centers in that country.
    So, It’s OK for other countries to detain Muslims indefinitely,
    but not US.

    And now we have a dead prison employee in Smyrna, Delaware after prisoners took over part of that facility this week “protesting the election of Trump” and demanding to see records about how much money was being spent on their rehabilitation. Yeah, right, what a crock.

    Now, today, there’s talk of a military coup to take out Trump.
    What’s the matter with the geriatric set in Congress—–not up for a time-consuming try for impeachment?

    Whatever happens, Obama is still on the beach on Sir Richard Branson’s private island in the Caribbean, waiting for a call. He and his peeps are photographed multiple times per day, smiling for the cameras of the foreign press.

    Whatever happens, McCain will be relishing his role in the final act of our country’s story.

    And we put him there.

      Just a little more info:

      This week, at Holloman Air Force Base, in New Mexico, two F-16 pilots “accidentally” dropped live rounds of ammunition from their jets, leaving one person dead and many others injured on the ground.

      These jets are attached to Luke AFB in the west valley.

      Makes one wonder. . . . .

    Who died and left McCain boss? He picked up the phone and meddled in US-Australia affairs.

    • Doc says:

      Apparadently, the Arizona electorate is who died. After all THEY ELECTED HIS SORRY @$$ ! !

      • Kent says:

        You couldn’t be more right, Doc. Your direct approach on the topic resonates!

        It’s the Flake we have to focus on now. Any ideas?

  5. azgary says:

    we will be stuck with mccain/flake/ducey and/or their chosen successors until we change up a few things like open primaries and their stooges az azgop chairman or we get an extremely good primary opponent that is willing to take on the status quo with a full throated battle roar and and fight..

    i see neither on the horizon.

  6. Clementine says:

    It should be clear to anyone paying even scant attention that McCain and Flake are self centered egoists who have no real concerns for anyone or anything other than perpetuating themselves in DC. The fact that the elderly liberal McCain was reelected in November is evidence that most Arizonans base their votes on the often outright lies in political commercials rather than paying attention to what’s going on. We will lose our country because the under informed are told it’s their duty to vote.

    • Former GOP PC says:

      Candidates who challenge the status quo don’t have the unlimited funds of incumbents who have special interest lobbyists shoveling cash their way or paying for mailers and commercials themselves as Political Action Committees. It’s up to us to make Jeff Flake a one term senator.

      My wife and I spent years as elected precinct committeemen and state committeemen, working on behalf of Republican candidates and rarely missing our monthly district meetings. Our diligence was rewarded by McCain’s operatives overfilling our precinct (and others where conservatives lived) with their recruits and us being thrown to the curb. Other PCs in the district have told us that the McRecruits NEVER show up at the meetings and have never lifted a finger to do anything for the Republican Party or Republican candidates.

      State Chairman Robert Graham knew exactly what was going on, but his slavish loyalty to McCain allowed him to turn a blind eye to the overwhelming evidence. Newly elected chairman Jonathan Lines will be no different. We’re being screwed by those who are supposed to be GOP leaders. I was stunned when I heard that Lines was endorsed by Reps. Gosar and Franks. I have no doubt they got the “McMessage.”

      My wife and are now registered Independents.

    Well after hearing that Dr Paul Gosar is considering running against Senator Jeff earlier this week I was really happy. Today I was greeted with this:
    http://ktar.com/story/1443447/sen-jeff-flake-arizona-no-primary-challenge-rep-paul-gosar/

    and then confirmed by this:
    https://www.facebook.com/Gosar4Congress/posts/10155165547646435

    I guess that Dr Paul Gosar received a call special call from our esteemed Senator John McSlame indicating that his political career would be ended if he runs against Jeff McFlake.

  8. Frankly Speaking says:

    Thanks for the links to the Roll Call votes on past Supreme Court appointees. Very interesting information on the AZ senators and their unjustifiable votes. No wonder McCain calls himself a “maverick.” It’s because He continually bucks the Republicans to cozy up with the Dems. He’s been doing it for decades. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting for the rest of us. This in depth info is why I return to this site every day.
