RNC Chair reprimands Jeff Flake with “cautionary tale”

RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel takes Flake to the woodshed for anti-Trump rhetoric. AZ GOP chairman Jonathan Lines remains mute

Readers of the AZ GOP’s Daily Updates, which inanely bills itself as “The Only Official Newsletter of the Arizona Republican Party!” — a jab at the fact-filled and widely read MCRC Briefs — would think everything was copacetic within the party hierarchy.  But a growing rift, evidenced by a stinging reprimand from on high was revealed Monday.

Speaking with Laura Ingraham on her nationally syndicated radio show, Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel issued a strong warning to Arizona Senator Jeff Flake.

McDaniel reminded listeners that three Republican senators who didn’t support Donald Trump during his victorious presidential campaign, lost their own races. Addressing the negativity Jeff Flake has continually lobbed at President Trump, she said the defeats suffered by  vocal opponents, Mark Kirk (Illinois), Kelly Ayotte (New Hampshire), and Joe Heck (Nevada), should serve as a “cautionary tale” to Jeff Flake, who already has the lowest approval rating of anyone in the 100-member U.S. Senate.

Flake’s newly released 140-page anti-Trump pamphlet passing itself off as a book, with a title directly lifted from Barry Goldwater’s 1960 transformative “Conscience of a Conservative.,” will not endear Flake to conservatives as he faces reelection in 2018. The book like its author is hypercritical of the Republican President. Among the other Republicans he skewers is former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. In an outrageous  ‘pot calling the kettle black’ scenario, peacock Flake refers to Newt Gingrich as a “character with extraordinary talents for self-promotion” Flake, who adds blond streaks to his hair, grins inappropriately to appear amiable and has sent out shirtless photos of himself, knows a thing or two about self-promotion.

McDaniel said the RNC usually stayed out of primaries but under the party’s bylaws could intervene if a number of RNC committee members agreed it was necessary.

“They need to have another candidate that they supported and the three RNC members that have to agree on that other candidate for rule 11 to apply, but it is in their bylaws,” McDaniel said. “It’s just interesting from a party standpoint, we do have governance. We have 168 members that they make those decisions. Sometimes you get in the nitty gritty, but I will say if you look at 2016, the senators that did not support the President, and let’s look at Joe Heck and Kelly Ayotte, they fell short in those Senate races, so there is a cautionary tale there because voters want you to support the President in his agenda.”

Approaching 2018, Arizonans are not land-locked. We are fortunate to have conservative Dr. Kelli Ward, who is challenging Flake. Take time to read her impressive bio and acquaint yourself with the principles on which she’s running.  Then send her a donation. Unlike Flake who continues to beg for campaign contributions, she’s not sitting on $millions in special interest and lobbyist cash.

    Jeff Flake has always been a marginal Republican and a known liar. He started out s a Libertarian, but they don’t win much, so he registered as a Republican. Even though he tosses around the word, “conservative,” don’t allow yourself to be fooled. He is an open borders McCain clone who was and remains close to Barack Obama. Having Jeff Flake in the Republican Party is no different than having an enemy in our camp,

    Even with McCain and Jon Kyl cutting TV ads for him, Flake squeaked into the Senate by only 3 percentage points! Dr. Richard Carmona, George W. Bush’s Surgeon General was a much better candidate, with real work experience and a stellar military background, neither of which the Flakster possesses.

  2. Seen It All says:

    Regarding his “experience,” I forgot to add: unless you consider lobbying as a registered foreign agent in the West African country of Namibia for a uranium mining company with deep ties to Iran. He also did a short stint at te Libertarian Goldwater Institute, which is NOT conservative.

    O.k. so First, regarding “chairman” lines, he’s in that position due to mc(ASS)’s crooked shenanigans, & everybody with 2 brain cells to rub together KNOWS this. Nothing’s gonna’ change this disgusting fact. Th’ guy’s like a wart that ya’ just can’t get rid of…

    Second, we all here support Dr. Ward, who was LIED about during her race with mc(ASS)! Who was it that said, “…if you keep on repeating the lies, eventually the people will believe them.”? It’s BEST for us to prepare for this to happen again. I believe mcflake is gonna’ have an uphill battle, even with all of Caligula’s (ASS’s) money, but the Boy Scout Motto is, & ALWAYS SHOULD, be In Effect.

    Third, please allow me 1 “tin foil hat” opinion. The bi-sexual kirsten SINenama, is working on being the dim-0-crappitic opponent against WHOEVER is running on the (r) side of the 2018 AZ. ?senatorial? race. What if…(ASS) KNOWS this & has decided to throw his flunkie under th’ bus? It’s not like he hasn’t done this before. IF th’ dims WERE to win against Dr. Ward OR mcflake, (ASS) would achieve his ULTIMATE Objective…a dim-0-crap ?senator? representing AZ. in the U.S. Senate…

    Seeing Red AZ is conservative and a reliable truth teller. Great (unfortunately all too rare) combination and one that brings me back each day. Thanks!!

    I’m sending a link to day’s post out to others who need to see it.

    For the past few years, Americans living outside of Arizona have started to wonder what is wrong with the voters in Arizona.
    I hear the question asked over and over again:
    Why do the people in Arizona keep electing these guys?

    If you look at some of the comments posted under breitbart columns and thegatewaypundit stories, you can see that people all over the country have negative comments regarding the ASS and his Flake.

    Meanwhile, another guy with Arizona ties, Edward Buck, is making the news.
    Apparently at one time he was a (R) but has morphed into a big time donor to the Dems now that he is living in California and moving in political circles. Living the good life and obviously a very perverted life.
    They’re all sickos, but untouchable. This will make your skin crawl:


    On the other coast: Trump has to say ‘you’re fired’ to McMaster—that guy is in bed with evil.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Regarding McMaster – he’s a dangerous man
      Understanding the McMaster NSC Purge

    • Observer says:

      A homosexual activist who went by the name Ed Buck, led and funded the recall against conservative Republican Gov. Evan Mecham, who was taken out of office in 1988. Could this be the same guy?

      Buck was not his actual last name, but one he assumed and that fit his lifestyle. The left was determined to take down Mecham, just as they are now working against Donald Trump. He was the subject of a recall, impeachment and criminal trial, in which he was found not guilty. Evan Mecham was a good governor who was maligned on a daily basis by the local newspaper. Sound familiar??

      • Virginia says:

        And what about Pres. Richard Nixon?! He was my first pres. to vote for and I’m not ashamed to admit I’m still angry about how he was treated. I watched what looked like blood thirsty animals go after him. Trump is a good president, so leave him alone!

      • Saguaro Sam says:

        Sounds like it may be the same guy.

        Meanwhile, Trump’s former campaign manager, Manafort, is now looking like the weakest link in Mueller’s big game hunt.

  6. Anna Gaines says:

    This Senator has been totally worthless. The only thing he does well is to follow thee example of his mentor…McCain! Equally worthless! We in AZ are presently without representation. We support President Trump, they chastise him. McCain sold out to Soros..the millions he donated for his campaign to win again, this helped him, but only if he let Obama win for the Globalists..who, were after BO, and were ready to cause havoc to fulfill their final goal of turning the US one of their ‘One World Order’. Under Hillary, BO would have completed the delivery of our country to the Globalists. Soros has also been speding his money financing the Students at the Radical Universities like Berkley Under Napolitano,
    We should have expected the lack of discipline, and the growth of the radical, liberal faculty. (I know this went of subject). But we can’t overlook what happens under liberal Politicians like Flake and McCain. Napolitano in California’s Learning Institutions. These are proof of our decay brought about by the Senators we vote for. We must keep our Learning Institutions as they were meant to be. McCain, and Flake do not fit in Arizona. Dr. Kelli Ward is the Conservative Candidate for AZ Senate.

  7. Conservative Since Birth says:

    I don’t know how Flake thinks he can win with the lowest approval rating in the Senate coupled with his constant undermining of President Trump. He respected and worked closely with — Obama. He’s a joke.

    I saw this comment below an article on Flake:
    ‘I can’t vote for a person who would use his power to get his son off on murder charges for killing 20 dogs.’

    • East Valley Voter says:

      Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery oversaw that shameful conclusion to the criminal charges. He didn’t want to take on Flake and harm his own political aspirations. Flake’s son’s in-laws who owned the kennel where the animals died, were out of town and put their daughter and son-in-law in charge of the kennel. The in-laws were charged and even served jail time but the Flake kid and his then wife, skated. Last I heard they were suing the county for million of dollars because their good reputations had been besmirched. What a joke!!

  8. Jeff Parker says:

    Jonathan Lines has to remain mute. As a party chair and with a primary contest ongoing, he can not play favorites and be chair. That’s how it works.

    However, I doubt he’s pleased with Flake.


    • State Delegate says:

      BULL !! Lines does the bidding of the establishment McCain cabal. He was put in place by the very people who want to keep Flake in office. Lines was hand delivered to the state delegates by none other than Robert (Mc)Graham, who was part and parcel of the same gang. The major effort this coming election cycle will be the focus on reelecting Flake the fake Republican. If you believe anything else you’re either hopelessly naive, outright ignorant or part of the deception.

      I recall Robert (Mc)Graham sneaking McCain and Flake in the back door and on stage at the state meeting where they were booed by state delegates while others turned their backs on them or walked out of the auditorium,

    • Jasper says:

      Lines sure didn’t remain mute against a fine patriot who ran against him in the recent AZGOP election. He engaged in the lying trash talk that Flake engages in. Lines was “elected’ to be sure Flake stays in office.

  9. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Senators learn the hard way about the fallout from turning on Trump

    Flake says he’s “going to run, run hard, have a good campaign, and I feel good about it.”
