Jeff Flake refers to illegal aliens as “Americans by choice”

August 22, 2017

In a blunderous description reminiscent of failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who said illegals aliens come to America as an “act of love” — Jeff Flake now calls these same foreign invaders who disregard our sovereign border, “Americans by choice.” Jeb favored a “pathway to citizenship” to allow those here in violation of the law to “come out of the shadows.” At the time, Jeff Flake praised the absurd contention that breaking our laws was “an act of love.”

“Truth is, I agree with Jeb, and I applaud him for having the guts to say it,” Flake posted on Facebook as reported by Huffington Post in 2014. “Growing up here in Arizona, I’ve seen what motivates those who come here illegally. Sure, some come with the intent to do harm or simply to take advantage of our generosity. But many come to find work to feed their families. To lump everyone who crosses the border illegally into the same class is unfair and unproductive.”

Now, in a sappy op-ed in the New York Times, Jeff Flake takes another potshot at President Donald Trump’s immigration polices as he recounts his family’s ranch and his father’s hiring practices of employing illegals. The fact that some were repeatedly deported and  returned didn’t bother the senior Flake, who rehired them.  His bottom line took precedence.

The New York Times is the same left-wing newspaper former Arizona Congressman John Shadegg, a McCain protégé, ran to as he hurled insults at Arizonans who simply want our nation’s laws respected. Shadegg went across the country to the liberal eastern press to call us “xenophobic and intolerant,“ invectives he never used to our faces, especially as he solicited our donations and votes.

Roy Beck, founder and president of NumbersUSA provides an in-depth report on amnesty-supporter Sen. Jeff Flake, titled,Sen. Flake extols his family’s illegal-alien hiring in attack on RAISE Act.

This evening President Donald Trump will address a rally of supporters at the Phoenix Convention Center. No rational conservative would either expect or desire Jeff Flake, a persistent detractor of the president to show up. Ditto McCain, who has relentlessly opposed President Trump and his policies.  Both men, who colluded with Democrat leaders on the “Gang of 8” amnesty scheme, were booed (video) by elected Republican state committeemen at a GOP statutory when they were slipped in the back door and led onstage by former AZ GOP chairman Robert Graham.

McCain had previously been censured by the same delegates.  He retaliated by plotting with San Francisco-based Obama donors and others of their ilk to purge conservative elected precinct committeemen from their posts. These internecine purges have been McCain’s ongoing commitment, even taking place in precincts this past election cycle. 

Will Arizona’s Republican U.S. House members show up to honor our Republican Commander in Chief? Their presence  — or absence — will speak volumes as the 2018 elections roll around. Those who ran and were elected as Republicans are Martha McSally, CD 2; Paul Gosar, CD 4; Andy Biggs, CD 5; David Schweikert, CD 6; and Trent Franks, CD 8.


Housing crisis or selfish lack of common sense?

August 21, 2017

Tale of woe doesn’t generate sympathy

The daily newspaper runs a front page article about ‘the new housing crisis,’ headlined, “A family’s plight: An income that’s $200 too much for housing help.” If you‘re in the mood for a tear-jerker, you couldn’t ask for more than this news article that reads like a paperback novel. It continues on two jump pages, complete with a photo showing the tattooed dad tenderly kissing his young son‘s head. Midway through, be forewarned, your patience will wear thin.

The account of a family’s travails begins with these words:

The kitchen light was already on as Kevin Scarbrough rose for another day of empty promises. He poured a mug of strong coffee and slipped a cellphone into the pocket of his jeans, turning up the volume in case a call came from the hospital or the housing authority.

“Where are you going?” his 4-year-old son Anthony asked. A catheter dangled from his leg, running to a kidney that failed before he was born and set in motion his family’s spiral into the shelter.

“I’m going to smoke,” replied Kevin, 41, and he stepped into the mid-morning sun. He stood in the gravel as he did each day and lit a cigarette, staring out into the concrete emptiness of UMOM New Day Center in east Phoenix. It had been the same view for almost a year, after the Scarbroughs were swallowed by an affordable-housing crisis the federal government was calling a national problem.

Ultimately, the sick little boy received a much-needed kidney transplant. The mother cut back her work hours to qualify for public assistance and the family of five was able to move into a subsidized apartment.

A “shrunken paycheck” would arrive at the end of the week, and they needed basics like towels, sheets and pillows. But according to the newspaper account, unemployed Kevin had the first $140 earmarked.

“He already had tattoos of his children’s names and the New York Knicks logo, and now had another in mind, the heart-in-hand logo of Phoenix Children’s Hospital with Anthony’s name arching above it.” The Dad with no job and on food stamps that never last the entire month “wanted to be a walking billboard for the hospital that saved his son.”

Know this: With a jobless father who puts cigarettes and tattoos before the basic needs of his family, dire circumstances will remain the norm for the Scarbrough family. This saga is a poor example of a national housing crisis. It only reflects the flawed mindset of a self-centered fool who is able to father children.


Toppling monuments: Analyzing the radical leftist’s demands

August 20, 2017

This past week has provided most of us with too much political lunacy to digest. Wide-scale death and injury perpetrated by Islamic jihadists in Spain and Finland, North Korea, led by a madman is threatening a “merciless (nuclear) strike,” and here at home riots and bizarre demands made by the undereducated who are not only toppling historical Civil War monuments but now want to obliterate references to our nation’s founders — Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Madison and others who owned slaves. Today we all agree the practice, then legal, was reprehensible. It is a stain on our past, but one we brought to an end.

In a testament to the pathetic state of  American education with leftist union teachers falling down on the job of educating the students in their charge, a statue of President Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president and the man famed for emancipating slaves, was defaced and then burned. Rampaging liberals, intent on destruction, lack the facts to discern that it was Republicans such as Lincoln who emerged victorious in the brutal Civil War that put an end to slavery. Democrats fought to defend it.

The word “racist” is hurled with impunity. “Hate speech” — speech the left disagrees with — has become an unpardonable sin, no longer worthy of First Amendment protection. Universities, which should be the bastions encouraging and protecting free expression, shut down or disinvite speakers with whom their liberal students disagree. 

Our president is arriving in Phoenix for a rally on Tuesday, and two far left Democrat Arizona Congressmen will be acting as ring leaders ginning up an unruly mob to gain national attention, since they’ve accomplished  nothing worthy of note.

AZ Republic gives instructions for Trump rally…to protesters

August 19, 2017

Under the guise of providing tips to those attending President Donald Trump’s upcoming rally, the Trump-haters at the Arizona Republic newspaper use the report to dispense more than advice to wear comfortable shoes, bring snacks and water. Another reminder: “Don’t bring a gun.

In a less than benign article cunningly titled, “How to attend (or protest at) President Trump’s Phoenix rally Tuesday” the emphasis is definitely on the protest aspect. Many supporters of the president have attended his previous packed house events, and are aware the lines are long, the wait is tiresome, and August weather in Phoenix is….well, August weather in Phoenix. During Donald Trump’s campaign, the same venue was used. There was a small group of political opponents kept in an area across the street, and who amounted to a wart on the Republican’s backside.

Clearly that is not what the newspaper is angling for this time.

The Hillary-endorsing, failing newspaper is not being civically responsible in directing anti-Trump attendees. It is laying the groundwork for disruption that provide the negative headlines it hopes will sell newspapers.

After recommending “How to get inside the rally,” among the “tips” it provides is to have “an exit plan.” Readers are advised to ”coordinate with whoever is attending with you on where/when to meet up in case your phones die, cell service cuts out, or there is an emergency.”

Other helpful hints include a “List of unofficial events outside the rally.” Follow that through to its logical conclusion.

The following question and answer posed and answered by the Arizona Republic is the crème de la crème of the incendiary anti-Trump article:

Q: Will registering for a ticket and not showing up leave an empty space?

A: No. Many protesters have registered for tickets but plan on not showing up in hopes of leaving President Trump talking to an empty room. This will not work, as seating is first-come, first-served, and there will be a mass of supporters waiting to get in. The only way Phoenix Convention Center will be empty is if no one shows up at all.

Saturday’s edition features the Phoenix Police Chief reassuring attendees the city is “well prepared” with maximum staffing, noting Phoenix’ partnership with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center.

This, for a visit from the President of the United States?

The same newspaper — advocating against a presidential pardon for former Sheriff Joe Arpaio — employs professional Hispanic editorialist Elvia Diaz, who has written a commentary with this enchanting title: “Send Joe Arpaio to prison. Being old is no excuse.”It begins with these words:

“Some of you want me to feel sorry for Joe Arpaio because he’s old  and can’t do any harm since he’s no longer sheriff. My answer? Hell no.

I want the 85-year-old former sheriff to go through the same hell that he forced Latinos to live, the same agony and torture of an uncertain future.

Where is my compassion for a senior citizen, who’s frail? Why keep kicking him when he’s already down? I have the same compassion he did….”

Remember, Diaz is talking about illegal alien invaders.


Flake’s Trump problem: AZ GOP struggles with tangled web*

August 18, 2017

A New Day, A New Shenanigan  is a must read, posted on Republican Briefs. It unambiguously addresses the trickery emanating from AZ GOP Chairman Jonathan Lines relating to the Tues. Aug. 22, Phoenix event featuring President Donald Trump.

Lines is clearly in a bind, since it is not the state party but state Treasurer Jeff DeWit, Trump’s Arizona campaign manager, who is coordinating the volunteer efforts inside the Phoenix Convention Center.. Lines defines those duties as “crowd flow, greeting guests, security, etc.” In Lines’ Daily Update, he says he’s “thrilled” with this setup, Wan‘na bet?

Then he says, “The White House, the Republican National Committee and the Trump Campaign have tasked Arizona Victory and the AZ GOP with voter registration and volunteer recruitment.”

Lines follows up with, “Because we know that the Democrats are doing everything they can to turn our state blue and using millions of George Soros’s dollars to do it, we must counter their efforts. Tuesday’s event is a great opportunity to welcome thousands of new Republican voters and volunteers into our party…and will be essential for victory next November.”

All well and good, except for in his gloss-over, Lines omits a couple of irrefutable facts: George Soros, whose efforts Lines acknowledges we must counter, is a longtime colluder and funder of John McCain. It wouldn’t be surprising to find self-described “globalist” Jeff Flake feeding at the same trough, since a major connective thread for open borders/globalist/Socialist billionaire Soros is amnesty for illegals who have invaded the U.S. Acting in concert, McCain and Flake worked to shepherd through their deceptive, “bi-partisan” Gang of Eight amnesty scam. Conservative Review’s Chris Pandolfo writes the aborted effort has been resurrected with McCain, now suffering from what his doctors describe as an aggressive form of brain cancer, at the helm. Flake running for reelection in 2018, can’t be a party to this effort, though he was integral to the scheme which was killed in the House of Representatives after conservative backlash demonstrated the grassroots will not tolerate pro-illegal immigration.

And speaking of Jeff Flake, we address point number two which is Jeff Flake’s contemptible attitude toward President Trump, whom he publicly declared “Can’t win and shouldn’t win” the 2016 election. Since then, Flake has written a 140-page pamphlet masquerading as a book, with a title stolen from Barry Goldwater’s iconic book, “Conscience of a Conservative,” in which he does everything short of burning President Trump at the stake. His internecine battles have not missed the notice of RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, who has chastised Flake for his antics. In signaling his support for Dr. Kelli Ward, President Trump tweeted, “Jeff Flake is “toxic and weak on borders.”

It will be interesting to see how  AZ GOP chairman Jonathan Lines deals with traitorous Jeff Flake, President Donald Trump and conservative senate challenger Dr. Kelli Ward.

*“O, what a tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive,“ oft-repeated adage, attributed to Wm. Shakespeare.

Pres.Trump calls Jeff Flake “toxic,” supports Kelli Ward for US Senate

August 17, 2017

Tweeting  his support for Dr. Kelli Ward in the upcoming Arizona U.S. Senate race, and calling Jeff Flake “weak “and “toxic,”President Donald Trump has set the stage for his appearance in the Valley at the Phoenix Convention Center on Aug. 22.

Seeing Red AZ has repeatedly written about the need to replace the incompetent, amnesty-supporting Republicrat Jeff Flake — who refused to vote for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Dr. Kelli Ward is an accomplished conservative who supports the president.  We’ve devoted an entire category to Jeff the Flake.

Taking a page from President Trump’s book, Kelli Ward will make Arizona Proud Again. Be sure to get your free tickets for President Trump’s Phoenix rally.  Reserve  your tickets HERE.

 


Phx’s tyrannical Mayor Stanton sabotages 1st Amendment

August 17, 2017

Wants to silence President Trump, shut down Aug. 22 Phoenix Convention Center rally

Feeling energized after arbitrarily deciding that a Phoenix street name he found offensive needed to go, though the longtime residents who lived there steadfastly petitioned to retain it, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton is back, bat in hand.  This time he’s taking on the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the President of the United States. This big, bad lawyer should know better, but his ego has swelled to the point of enveloping his brain. 

Liberal Democrat Stanton has now announced that he’s “disappointed” that President Donald Trump plans to rally supporters in Phoenix next week. “’It is my hope that more sound judgment prevails and that he delays his visit,’ Stanton said. In fact, Stanton ludicrously links the visit and request for the president to “delay his plans” to visit Phoenix “as the nation is still healing from the tragic events in Charlottesville.”

Leaving no room for doubt as to his skewed ideology Stanton adds that if Trump is coming to Phoenix to announce a pardon for former Maricopa County sheriff Arpaio — now 85 years old and potentially facing a 6-month sentence for carrying out his duties — “then it will be clear that his true intent is to enflame emotions and further divide the nation,” ridiculously claiming  a “pardon would amount to an endorsement of racism.”  A federal judge ruled that Arpaio’s officers had racially profiled Hispanics, a charge Arpaio denied.

That’s the mantra of liberals, who have taken to heart Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s tactic ofnever allowing a serious crisis to go to waste.  He made the statement as chief of staff for Barack Obama.

Radical leftist CD 3 U.S. RepRaul Grijalva (read the linked Jerry Kammer exposé revealing his Saul Alinsky roots) will be leading a band of leftist protesters outside the Phoenix Convention Center. Grijalva once called for a boycott of Arizona, a job killer for his own constituents, many of whom work in the service industries.

Stanton is obviously laying the groundwork for grander ventures, having filed for the position of Secretary of State, often the gateway to the Arizona Governor‘s Office. At the beginning of the 2017-2018 reporting period, he was already sitting atop over a $ half million — $510,150.39, to be exact — though no current donors are listed. Equality Arizona, a local LGBTQ advocacy group, was the recipient of $1,000 for an event table.  Don’t be surprised if slippery Stanton ditches the SOS pursuit for an office with more heft.  He’s obviously covered all contingencies by naming his campaign “Stanton for Arizona.”

For a memory refresher, wander back to 2011 to see who Greg Stanton actually is.

Trump-hating media unable to influence voters

August 16, 2017

Arizona senate hopefuls should pay attention to Alabama

If the mainstream media was all you depended on for news about Donald Trump, you’d be of the opinion that the President of the United States was an incompetent bumbler, who mistakenly stumbled into the Oval Office and can’t find the exit.

The liberal hatred for the man who swept to victory on Nov. 7, 2016, is visceral and unrelenting. But those who count — Americans of every stripe who put him comfortably across the finish line — remain firmly in his camp, which galls the Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton worshipers and their like-thinking media gaggle. Ultimately even the unabashedly left-wing Washington Post was forced to admit,Donald Trump just blew up the electoral map.”

The latest confirmation of President Trump’s influence is evident in the contentious special election senate race in Alabama, where Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Luther Strange and former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore have advanced to a runoff election in Alabama’s Republican Sept. 26 primary. The seat was previously held by former Sen. Jeff Sessions who joined the Trump administration as U.S. Attorney General. Strange was appointed to fill the senate vacancy in February by former Gov. Robert Bentley. If you think Arizona politics is convoluted, try this on for size: Strange, then Alabama’s Attorney General was investigating Bentley for allegedly using state money to cover up a sex scandal. Bentley resigned the governorship in April.

“I predict President Trump’s endorsement will be incredibly important because people want his agenda passed,” Strange said after the polls opened. “I want his agenda passed. He has given me his endorsement and full support. I think that will make a difference today.”

In a strange alignment backing Strange, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is also supporting the senator. The Senate Leadership Fund, a major PAC with ties to McConnell, has pledged to spend up to $8 million to get Strange across the finish line. Politico reports the PAC, which has spent $3.5 million on the race as of late July, focused its attacks on U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks for comments he made criticizing Trump during the 2016 presidential primaries. An early Ted Cruz backer, Mo Brooks later supported Trump’s campaign, but his opportunist status didn‘t help him reach 20%.

The anti-Trump brigade at CNN foolishly headlined its wishful -thinking report, “A Donald Trump-endorsed candidate just might lose in Alabama today.”  Despite high hopes for a Trump humiliation, that didn’t happen. CNNers apparently forgot that Donald Trump won Alabama by more than 27 points in 2016.

Yet to come is a Sept. 25 runoff election followed by a Dec. 12 general election.

There is an important lesson for Arizona GOP Senate 2018 hopefuls or a Democrat counting on crossover votes. They would be wise to focus on this race. It appears the road to the Senate is paved by Donald Trump. McCain-led, amnesty supporter and incompetent incumbent Sen. Jeff Flake who was recently chastised by RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, will be running for reelection after loudly proclaiming his refused to endorse GOP nominee Trump and declaring neither he nor anyone in his family would vote for him for President. 

Dr. Kelli Ward supports the president. To know exactly where she stands, check out her strongly heldprinciples.”


Pres. Trump filling federal judicial vacancies

August 15, 2017

Jeff Flake’s failed efforts to decimate Donald Trump and push through Obama’s appointee to US Supreme Court have left him vulnerable in 2018

In a fact-filled report, Ballotpedia covers the vacancies and the opportunities for President Trump to impact the federal bench, which was among the top reasons Americans, weary of the rulings emanating from the leftist appellate courts, voted for him. To date, the president  has submitted nominations to fill more than 20% of federal judicial vacancies during his first six months in office —  a near record.

Partisan politics plays a key role in the senate confirmation of judges and Democrats are still smarting over Trump’s appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, filling the vacancy created by the Feb. 13, 2016 unexpected death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

Lame duck Barack Obama tried to shove through Democrat Merrick Garland to fill the post in the waning days of his presidency. Obama was aided in his attempt by Arizona Republicrat Sen. Jeff Flake, who shepherded Garland through the senate making instructions and publicly stating, “ It was time to start thinking about confirming him.” Flake, who denounced Donald Trump throughout the Primary, was banking on cozying up to Hillary Clinton, whom he regarded as the front-runner.

But American voters spoke loud and clear on Nov. 8, 2016, stunning the Democrats and Jeff Flake, who repeatedly said “Donald Trump can’t win and shouldn’t win.”

Worried that Republicans would in turn reject him and his amnesty shemes, the Internet is now filled with ads of the inanely grinning Flake, in which he is farcically described as a “principled conservative.”  Flake appears to have forgotten that the GOP is represented by an elephant, known for possessing an excellent memory. Polling shows Flake with the lowest approval rating of the entire 100-member U.S. Senate. The dismal numbers are no doubt aided by his  recently published 140-page pamphlet — generously described as a book— with the title stolen from an iconic 1960 Barry Goldwater publication,  in which he takes the Republican Party to task.

This past week Jeff Flake was taken to the political woodshed by none other than RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, who is concerned that his anti-Republican antics could result in the party losing the senate majority.

President Donald Trump wins with conservatives. First term senator Flake, running for reelection in 2018, currently has an 18% approval rating.
