Prediction: East Valley folks will circle the wagons around Flake
After newly elected conservative U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (AZ CD-5) had his first town hall meeting invaded by boorish Democrats on Tuesday, Republicrat Jeff Flake will be holding another of his tightly controlled meetings this evening.
It’s not Democrats Flake needs to concern himself with. Arizona’s junior senator, who will be standing for reelection next year, has nothing to fear from the left. His hard lined stance in opposition to Republican nominee Donald Trump — who carried Arizona and all of the state‘s 11 electoral votes — mirrored that of Hillary Clinton most strident supporters.
Flake needs to figure a way to infect Arizona Republicans with pre-election amnesia. We need to forget his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump “can‘t and shouldn‘t win,” Flake’s indefensible positions have left him with weak support, that even his oddly inappropriate smirk can’t reverse. He has been quoted as saying, “that’s the beauty of a six-year term” meaning he hopes our memories are short. Due to his leftward lurch, Flake forgets the symbol of the Republican Party is the long memoried elephant.
AZ’s Channel 3 covered first term senator Flake’s unpopularity, revealing him as the most unpopular U.S. Senator in the nation.
Besides blasting GOP nominee Trump, Flake also urged support of Barack Obama’s lame duck appointee, Democrat Merrick Garland, to the U.S. Supreme Court. Saner heads prevailed since Garland would have pitched the high court irreversibly to the left in the near future and influenced decisions for decades to come. Once elected, President Trump appointed Judge Neil Gorsuch. Though he was unanimously confirmed to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, Democrats pulled out all stops to derail him. The Republican president Flake refused to vote for was ultimately victorious in changing the face of the most powerful court in the land.
Flake’s event this evening is slated for 7 p.m. at the Mesa Convention Center. It’s advertised as having attendance based on a first come, first served basis. Count on Flake’s core East Valley base dutifully standing in line for hours before the doors open to ensure they get those “first come, first served” seats, in an effort to save him from embarrassing questions.
Unwilling to face Republican voters, John McCain, Flake‘s equally unpopular mentor recently took questions via the safe Facebook Live route.
Flake and McCain have experience with such contrivances. Their tightly controlled “Conversation on Immigration,” when they were leaders of the Gang of Eight amnesty scheme with Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, a host of liberals and a couple of other RINOs is just one example of their duplicity.
They want our votes, but have no interest in hearing our voices.
