Narcissist Jeff Flake continues to scam Republicans

November 30, 2018

Though nearly out the senate door due to embarrassing 18% approval ratings in his home state —- precluding even an arrogant egotist like the aptly named Flake from seeking reelection —- he nevertheless continues to act like a petulant child. By Spring of 2017, he was unable to garner enough supporters to fill a small room.

Lame duck Flake’s overriding obsession is hatred-driven. And the object of this scurrilous intensity is President Donald Trump, who is keeping his promises to the American people.  Unable to acknowledge the numerous accomplishments of the man he predicted would never be elected, Flake throws tantrums and engages in reckless, destructive actions. 

Flake has now chosen to act on his threats of stalling confirmations of the well-vetted federal judicial candidates, including six conservative Trump nominees to the Circuit Court and 15 others named to the District Courts. Flake did no such thing while his travel and basketball playing buddy Barack Obama occupied the Oval Office. Flake even worked double-time to get Obama’s last minute U.S. Supreme Court Democrat appointee, Merrick Garland, confirmed —- a task at which he fortunately failed. His latest foolish issue is having confirmations tied to a vote on a bill to protect Robert Mueller’s baseless Russia investigation, which has produced not a single shred of evidence implicating the president or his family. Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell has called the bill, “a solution in search of a problem,“ although that logic fails to deter Flake.

Jeff Flake, like his mentor John McCain, had no trouble using the Republican party to get elected. They talked a good game while campaigning, but once safely back on the banks of the Potomac, they veered left, frequently colluding on issues such as amnesty for illegals with the most radical D.C. liberals. McCain forged alliances with Ted Kennedy, Dick Durbin and Charles Schumer, among others. Flake is partnering on this legislation with Delaware Democrat Chris Cooms. Flake’s neurotic loathing is so insidious President Trump’s historic achievements, such as being the first U.S. President in nearly 70 years to meet with the leader of North Korea and sign a treaty to denuclearize the volatile Korean peninsular —- are of no consequence to the chronically angry, self-absorbed, show-boating Flake.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Flake is a member, canceled a Thursday vote on over 20 federal judicial nominations The Judiciary panel, with a slim 11-10 GOP majority, doesn’t have sufficient votes to advance nominees without his support. The new congress will be sworn in Jan 3, 2019.

It’s difficult to imagine that Kyrsten Sinema, the leftist Democrat who will replace Flake in the U.S. Senate, could be any worse.

Tear gas? Dem hypocrisy, double standard, exposed

November 29, 2018

The mainstream media would have us believe that President Trump is nothing short of a demonic ogre for allowing tear gas to be used at the border to inhibit rock and bottle throwing illegal aliens from storming our sovereign border.

What a bad guy!  What a corrupt administration!

Yet according to data from the Department of Homeland Security first reported in The Washington Times, the identical tear-gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deploying against a border mob last weekend is actually used fairly frequently — including more than once a month during the later years of President Barack Obama’s administration.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has used 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, or CS, since 2010, and deployed it 26 times in fiscal 2012 and 27 times in 2013. It was still being used in 2016, Obama’s final full year in office.

Border authorities also use another agent, pepper spray, frequently — including a decade-high record of 151 instances in 2013, also under Pres. Obama. Pepper spray, officially known as Pava Capsaicin, was used 43 times in fiscal year 2018, according to the CBP numbers.

The data poses a challenge to the current leftwing outrage over the Border Patrol’s use of tear gas Sunday to prevent a frenzied horde of illegals from breaking through sections of old border fence in California.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, questioned the skewed reporting in the strongest of terms, asking where the critics were when tear gas was deployed during Obama‘s presidency.

This policy that we use was an Obama-written policy and it was used in 2013 at the same port of entry,” he told CNN, wondering in particular about the intense media interest now versus then.

Critics, including Latin American leaders, immigrant-rights advocates and congressional Democrats, have said use of tear gas is “un-American.”

“Un-American”? Maybe Obama was born in Kenya, after all?

Watch as Brandon Judd exposes the facts of the border situation in an interview on The Daily Caller TV:


Miss. Senate victory has AZ implications

November 28, 2018

Trump supporter’s triumph impedes Flake’s tantrums

With the support of President Trump — who traveled to Mississippi to campaign for her twice in a single day — Republican senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith easily defeated Mike Espy, a Clinton-era agriculture secretary and former congressman by a vote of 53.9% to 46.1%.

“As the president said, a vote for Cindy Hyde-Smith is a vote for me,” Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said as the returns came in Tuesday night. “Mr. President, I know you may be watching. We just voted for you.”

Hyde-Smith’s victory increases the GOP majority in the U.S. Senate to 53 – 47, giving President Trump the edge he needs for judicial confirmations.

In view of Hyde-Smith’s triumph, lame duck Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake’s obstinate threats to hold up senate nominations in the judiciary committee where he has been a member, make him appear even more foolish. Arizona Republicans are aware the single-term senator and obsessive Trump opponent opted out of running for reelection due to embarrassingly low 18% approval ratings in his home state. He was replaced by far-left radical Kyrsten Sinema, who will be an interchangeable obstructionist for Republicrat Flake when the new congress is sworn in January 3, 2019.

Cindy Hyde-Smith fully embraced President Trump, and her victory is an affirmation of that fact. In 2016, Mississippi supported Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton 57.9% to 40.1%. {Place cursor on linked map to see individual state results.)

Hyde-Smith fills the remaining two years of Sen. Thad Cochran’s term, and faces another election in 2020. Cochran, a Republican first elected to the Senate in 1978, retired in April due to what he referred to as “health challenges.” Gov. Phil Bryant appointed Cindy Hyde-Smith (bio) to the seat.


Bravo! Dr. Kelli Ward runs for AZ GOP chair

November 27, 2018

There is no question that Arizona Republican party chairman Jonathan Lines needs to be replaced.  His failure to effectively lead the state GOP was clearly evidenced as the returns came in following the November 6 General Election. Lines, the hand-picked successor to slickster Robert Graham, appallingly fell down on the job which he was ill-equipped to hold. Couple his obvious inadequacies with the fact that Yuma resident Lines lives nearly 2 hours away from the office he’s supposed to be running in Phoenix and the recipe for disaster is exceedingly clear. This is an example of Lines’ deceptive work which resulted in Dems taking both LD 28 House seats.

Kelli Ward’s announcement answers the long held hope of the GOP grassroots party activists, as she declares, “It’s time to unite the Arizona Republican Party to win big in 2020.”

The red state of Arizona is now veering purple having lost a U.S. Senate seat, Secretary of State, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and one of the two seats on the utility rate-setting Corporation Commission. Greg Stanton, the leftwing former mayor of Phoenix won in Congressional District 9. Dems now hold five of Arizona’s nine CD seats.

Republicans Paul Gosar (CD-4), Andy Biggs (CD-5), David Schweikert (CD-6), and Debbie Lesko (CD-8) are currently the minority in the delegation.

Only Republicans Gov. Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich retained their state seats and first rate former state senator Kimberly Yee won as State Treasurer. But the state legislature is no longer a solid bastion as Dems made inroads in the AZ House and Senate led in large part by liberal unionist teachers, who were placated by Ducey when they abandoned their students for a week. Ducey added insult to injury with his recent appointment of a far left Dem to the Arizona Board of Regents. Could this be the final affront behind his longtime chief of staff taking a hike?

The state Republican Party clearly needs energized new leadership as this unprecedented seismic shift took place under Jonathan Lines. Amazingly, he is considering a second term as GOP chairman. Another name being floated is Frank Thorwald, whose padded resume doesn‘t address his lack of involvement in the state party. He works for Robert Graham providing Graham another puppet.

Conservative Kelli Ward is a former state senator. She traveled the state repeatedly as she waged two U.S. senate campaigns and developed national relationships necessary for this leadership post. She also has the much needed fundraising skills required for the job. Most importantly, Dr. Kelli Ward, an osteopathic physician, challenged the establishment. She is not part of it.

“The Party of Lincoln and Goldwater should be one that is led by the grassroots; unfortunately, over the last four years, the grassroots within the Republican Party have been silenced and disenfranchised both nationally and at the state level in Arizona.” Ward said in her announcement.

The Arizona Republican Party, which still has this page up touting a smiling John McCain — who died in August — as a “federal official,” will be holding its internal election in January.

Clearly, Jonathan Lines is over his head.


The border. The invasion. The wall. The truth.

November 26, 2018

Standing firm with President Trump on the border

Let’s get this straight.  An estimated 7,000 Central Americans, with thousands more expected, are claiming they are leaving their homelands due to dire conditions and are seeking asylum. Traveling in what are described as caravans, they have passed through Mexico, without asking to be allowed to stay there. It’s America they desire, as they are lured by our taxpayer funded goodies (shocking news video). American citizens are being fed a continual diet of deceit and contrivances about these folks often referred to simply as “migrants.” The accurate descriptive wordsillegal aliens” are now considered pejoratives.

Their desire to be Americans is so great, the mostly young men brandish their own national flags and defiantly hurl rocks at the U.S. Border Patrol agents, boldly displaying their deep desire to enter our country and become acculturated. To gain access, they are now storming the border en masse. Criminals have been found among these sterling folks.

Assimilation is not their goal, nor is asylum, or they would have asked for it when entering Mexico. Overrunning Tijuana, creating havoc and skyrocketing costs to sustain them there, the Mexicans who live in the city are marching in the streets protesting the Central American invaders who are funded by activist organizations and globalist billionaire George Soros. He has long supported Chicago-based La Familia Latina Unita. (Bill O’Reilly video.)

Yet when President Trump declares he will permanently shut down the border if the human avalanche continues across our border, he is derided as lacking compassion.

The political component is all too clear. Radical Democrats want to ensure a borderless society and a permanent leftist voting bloc. The leftwing media vilifies President Trump, and the soon-to-be-installed Democrat House majority is chomping at the bit to bring him down.

The rest of us, those who comprehend the ugly realities, are all too aware that among the left and at universities across our nation, celebrating illegals is the new chic craze. Even following the senseless murder of Kate Steinle shot while walking along the San Francisco pier with her father, the word “deportation” is never uttered, although the Mexican national shooter with a criminal history was previously deported five times. He was acquitted in the murder trial. And across the bay in Oakland, the Democrat mayor has been cheered for warning illegals in advance of ICE raids.

We live in a time when there are no penalties for lawlessness and schools indoctrinate our students to the point where elderly Socialist Bernie Sanders was a big 2016 hit with millennials who lack historical knowledge of its failed regimes. Devoid of understanding, they prefer socialism to capitalism. (Set aside time for this instructive video.) Businessman President Trump deserves our support for his efforts to keep American safe and in the capitalistic realm.

Pres. Trump’s border message resonates with Mexico

November 25, 2018

In a couple of tweets, Pres. Trump sends unambiguous message

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump

Follow @realDonaldTrump

Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court. We only will allow those who come into our Country legally. Other than that our very strong policy is Catch and Detain. No “Releasing” into the U.S…

3:49 PM – 24 Nov 2018

….All will stay in Mexico. If for any reason it becomes necessary, we will CLOSE our Southern Border. There is no way that the United States will, after decades of abuse, put up with this costly and dangerous situation anymore!

3:56 PM – 24 Nov 2018

Reports confirm that the Trump administration has succeeded in gaining Mexican support of a plan to revise U.S. border policy by requiring that those claiming asylum status must wait in Mexico rather than enter the United States.  Currently, illegal foreign nationals — well-coached in asylum lingo — are given a hearing date for which few ever appear, quickly fleeing the border states they illegally invaded and evading authorities who have no verifiable means of tracking them. There was a backlog totaling nearly 750,000 cases as of the end of August. To put that in perspective, check out the populations of the cities on this list. That number exceeds the populations of Denver, Washington, D.C., and Seattle.

The accord is said to have been reached with Mexican officials and senior members of newly elected President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s transition team. Obrador is described as a “populist,“ a term often used to describe Pres. Trump. He will be sworn in on December 1, 2018 to serve a six-year term. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is scheduled to attend Obrador’s inaugural ceremony.

A priority of his agenda will be will be to rein in the escalation of criminal violence. Last year, Mexico experienced a record-breaking 25,400 murders. Armed criminal gangs roam unimpeded, especially in the areas where illegal drug trade dominates the economy.
