You couldn’t miss the ads if you tried. Jeff Flake, sitting atop a mountain of lobbyist money, has seemingly taken over the Internet touting himself as a “committed conservative.“ His reelection is right around the corner causing him to take a dive on his previously stated desire to be called, “A Globalist.” He was grinning broadly back at the beginning of August, his peroxide enhanced locks gleaming to match his capped toothed grin.
That was when he was trying to milk his miniscule anti-Trump pamphlet masquerading as a book. It carries a title blatantly stolen straight from Barry Goldwater’s iconic 1960 book, “Conscience of a Conservative.” No one has ever accused McCain clone Flake of having an original thought.
Flake isn’t flying so high these days. Numerous polls show him in bad shape. Even the Hillary- endorsing Arizona Republic had to admit he was in deep trouble. Prior to the 2016 election that put Donald Trump in the White House, Jeff Flake joined John McCain in publicly declaring they would not vote for the GOP nominee, effectively aiding scandal plagued Hillary. That’s who Arizona’s Republicrat U.S. Senators are. They run as Republicans and then vote as Democrats while promoting open borders, which ultimately benefit the Democrat Party. This is classic McCain duplicity on display.
Jeff Flake is a practiced liar. When first elected to the U.S. House, he pledged to term-limit himself to three two-year terms. When he decided to mimic the Energizer Rabbit and keep on running, his odd grin accompanied his admission, “I lied.”
His turnaround on his commitment to open borders and amnesty for illegals is legend. But as the election neared and he got an earful from statewide voters, he quickly shifted position, causing editorialist Doug MacEachern to spin dervish-like into a panic, calling him a “politician, no longer a statesman.” He needn’t have worried. Flake wasted no time reverting to his original amnesty position immediately following the counting of the ballots. The opportunist Flake — a former registered foreign agent, lobbying for an African uranium mining company with ties to Iran — has no core. This article from 2012 details the shady past he tries to obscure.
The left-of-center newspaper has been diligently trying to massage Flake’s image, attempting to make him sound like a leader. It will ultimately endorse him over principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward, which is to her benefit.
We’re on to the newspaper’s tactics. Keeping Republicrats in office allows it to mischaracterize itself as “conservative.” Don’t believe it. Flake needs to be shown the door.
