Flake left the senate because he can’t abide the GOP

This morning’s issue of the Arizona Republic is a multi-page paean to the man we have often characterized as Jeff the Flake. The Hillary Clinton endorsing newspaper heralds him on the front page with an oversize  photo and overlayed with his quote, “I will not be complicit.” The jump pages include his speech and a dose of fawning by his mentor John McCain. There is no denying the hard fact that throughout his career Flake has shown himself to be “complicit” —- with Democrats and against conservative positions.

The personification of sanctimonious arrogance, the always preening Jeff Flake has been an utter disappointment to Arizona Republicans. He held closed door or invitation only town halls because Arizonans overwhelmingly wanted to see a border wall built while he was acting in concert with John McCain, two other RINOs and a gaggle of the most liberal senate Democrats on the “Gang of 8”amnesty bill. Few have forgotten his 2016 effort to pass “bipartisan” gun control legislation, his collusion with Barack Obama over a nuclear deal with the terror-sponsoring, American-hating rogue nation of  Iran, or the implementation of his long held desire to lift the U.S. embargo on travel to Communist Cuba — another deal made with his buddy Obama.

Then there was  the shocking spectacle of Jeff Flake taking Barack Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court nominee Democrat Merrick Garland through the halls of the senate in an attempt to garner votes for him. With the election of President Trump,  conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch was appointed to the high court to fill the seat previously held by Justice Antonin Scalia.

There have been numerous other betrayals and glib attempts at trickery, all with his ever present smirk plastered on his face. He belittled GOP nominee  Donald Trump who won the Republican nomination over 16 other primary candidates, declaring, “He can’t and shouldn’t win,” while loudly and repeatedly proclaiming his refused to vote for Trump — putting him squarely in scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton‘s column. He must have choked on his own sputum on Dec. 8, 2016 when the results came in showing Trump was elected President.

Flake’s decision to leave the U.S. Senate is based in the  knowledge he is out of step with Arizona’s voters and  couldn’t win in 2018. 

Fortunately, conservatives have an excellent candidate in Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician, military wife, and former two-term state senator who spent 4 years burnishing her conservative credentials in the Arizona legislature. She also supports the President of the United States.

    Jeff Flake is none too smart but he is wily. Now he’s faced with the certainty that his left leaning seriously ill mentor McCain won’t be around to guide him much longer. His far left chum Obama is outside the gates. Hillary has problems of her own. Flake had no one to lead him. He knew the charade was over for him.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Flake ended up being quite impotent. Those who know him, don’t care what he thinks. Are glad to see him go and hope to never see him again.

      The rest don’t know who he is. Have never heard of him.

    SRAZ has compiled a good list of grievances against The Flake.Topping my list was his assine senate interview with Judge Neil Gorsuch prior to assuming the associate justice position. It’s a serious position and this was the best that Flake could come up with? Nothing more clearly exemplifies the jerk that Jeff is.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      What a dolt. Of course, Flake preferred the Lefty Obama wanted on the Supreme Court, so he makes light of our choice with embarrassing “questions.”

      …maybe he stayed up late watchin’ th’ Diamondbacks th’ night b’for…
      …ORF…he’s just a blitherin’ MORON…

    Rush went thru many of Flakes votes – which were NOT conservative!!!! As complied by Jay Johnson who works or worked for Ted Cruz. Confirmed Loretta Lynch, fund Obama’s amnesty, voted yes to authorize Export/Import Bank, etc.

    Jeff Flake is a fake and a liar – I love the self draining of the swamp. They are exposed by truth and running like the cockroaches they are.

    McCain tho, will continue to be a selfish, traitorous, liar, vindictive ugly man – quite a legacy.

    • MacBeth says:

      Flake is not only pompous and moronic, he is now a bonafide loose cannon until his term is up. He’ll be free to do and say even more outrageous things because there will be no consequences.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        I don’t know what it’ll prove. It just makes him look bitter, angry and spiteful (and beaten down). Voting against everything Trump wants passed is childish. The Deplorables will hate him and the Democrats/McCain will chuckle. His behavior is not “moral” as he is so hung up on saying. If that’s the way he wants to go out – so be it. AZ’s two senators are pure whack jobs.

      • Doc says:

        …maybe we can get him & his WHOLE LOSER FAMILY to move…to…like…Venezuela!!!

  4. Braveheart says:

    Flake and McCain are both despicable characters who have no concept of what it means to “represent” the citizens who elected them as they ran under the Republican banner. They are more bonded to illegal aliens than they are to any of us. Just remember that their actions will forever diminish the Republican Party.They ran as Republicans because it was the route to carrying the state of Arizona. Both are liberals.

  5. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Flake’s making a career out of his hatred of Donald Trump. Here he is on the Today Show this morning. I almost fell asleep watching the 6 minute video.

  6. State Committeeman says:

    I’ve often wondered what Arizonans are being punished for with two of the most atrocious senators in the country.

    Worse yet is the fact that the AZ GOP chair and his hangers on stand by and not only say nothing, but were poised to endorse Flake as they did McCain, the other Republicrat.. Our congressional Republicans turn away from the spectacle and play dumb. I’ve lost respect for them all. No one has a spine.

    • Doc says:

      Prediction: AZGOP won’t endorse Dr. Ward for ?senate? ‘cuz ASS’ll get a spoiler to run against her, hoping that his horse’ll LOSE so that a dim-0-crap will take mcflake’s place which…is what ASS wanted th’ WHOLE TIME.

  7. Former GOP PC says:

    The establishment “leadership” at the Arizona Republican Party has sent out an email thanking The Flake for his service. What a bunch of lockstep goons. I’ve been on the receiving end of this crew of RINOs who think McCain and Flake are great. They have taken out decent hardworking conservative PCs and replaced us with do nothings. Yesterday I received a call asking me to pony up for the party. How dare they?? I wouldn’t give them the sweat off my backside. I support Dr. Kelli Ward for US Senate.They support McCain and Flake. Wonder what they’ll be doing now?
