Political ploy intended to garner votes is a stale scam
Jeff Flake, rightfully concerned about his lagging popularity as he gears up for a 2018 reelection campaign, has a shiny new object to grab your attention away from his less than stellar commitment to Republican principles.
Even the left-of-center, Hillary endorsing Arizona Republic had to admit that according to its own poll, Flake’s numbers are weak.
His most recent fundraising email, using John McCain’s “Friend” salutation, touts his efforts, along with McCain, of course, to sever Arizona from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Flake says the court is too large to be effective. He backs that up with the protracted time — up to 15 months — he claims it takes “to make a decision because they are so backed up in their work.”
“I’ve introduced a bill with John McCain that will split the 9th and create a new, 12th Circuit Court of Appeals because Arizonans and other Western states don’t have the bedrock principle of swift justice found in the rest of our nation,” writes Flake.
Before he moves to the money plea, using bold italicized type Flake intones, “Justice delayed is justice denied,” neglecting to credit British Prime Minister William E. Gladstone who said those words in 1868.
“Join me in fighting for a solution for Arizona,” Flake implores. “We need courts that are fair and effective for everyone, not political institutions. Let’s make it happen; chip in $5, $10, or whatever you can today to bring justice to Arizona!”
We’ve removed the links to his donation page, since even $5 is too much to send to this Republicrat phony. Money is the least of his problems. He’s been amassing plenty from lobbyists.
Flake blathers about the size of the court and its backlog of cases, slowing its actions.
What he doesn’t mention is that the Ninth Circuit is a crushingly liberal monopoly and one of the most overturned circuit courts in the nation, since those facts don’t matter to increasingly left-leaning Flake. This is not Flake’s first trip to this political well. He also introduced this legislation during the 114th Congress, but it didn’t receive a vote. The current version has a single cosponsor, John McCain. Congress has considered proposals to break up the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals dating back to 1941.
After meeting with Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court nominee, Jeff Flake tried to fast track him to the High Court. Make no mistake, Flake is a mirror image of John McCain and his former senate seatmate, Jon Kyl, who both voted to confirm liberal Democrats to the Ninth Circuit and other federal courts.
When Flake first ran for congress, he latched onto the issue of eliminating “pork,” the term used for non-essential spending. Forming another federal Circuit Court will incur massive costs, though Flake omits that fact. Amnesty supporting Flake has never addressed the astronomical costs associated with turning illegal aliens into citizens or its impact on actual American citizens.
