Republicrat egocentric contrarian needs to go
In an email titled, “Help me drain the swamp!,” Kelli Ward announces her intent to challenge first term Sen. Jeff Flake in 2018. Flake has determinedly worked to undermine Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump while essentially giving his full-throated support to corrupt, scandal plagued liberal Hillary Clinton.
In one of her final essays, conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly exposed Jeff Flake as a “disreputable globalist.” She had previously written “Trump battles globalist Republicans,” which we covered in Schlafly: Trump treated with hostility; Flake leads the pack.
Except for a stint leading the Libertarian, “limited government” Goldwater Institute, a fiscal but not social conservative group, Flake has spent his career at the public trough, even breaking his own pledge to term limit himself to stay in the heady atmosphere of Washington, DC. Searching all of the laissez-faire Goldwater categories, even “regulations,” we were unable to find a word either pro or con on Prop. 205 the disastrous effort to legalize recreational marijuana on the Nov. 8, General Election ballot. Silence often speaks louder than words.
In the early 1990s Flake was a registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium, a company operating a mine in the South African country of Namibia that is among the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel —- partially owned by Iran. He earned approximately $7,000 monthly opening doors in the our nation’s capital and promoting the firm, according to records obtained by National Journal, which writes, “Flake’s little-known time in the influence industry stands in contrast to his carefully cultivated image as a Washington outsider.” As a lobbyist he gained D.C. access for the nefarious uranium dealers.
Flake is oozy with Obama, as a regular traveling companion and White House basketball teammate. Senate Conservatives Fund noted that Flake was one of only two Republican senators who disappointingly didn’t vote on whether to cut off debate giving the Democrats the power to fund Obamacare. The conservative vote was “Nay.” His leftist votes on matters of extreme impotence can be seen here. Conservative Review rates Jeff Flake an “F” along with is mentor John McCain. Gun Owners of America asks, “How Many Times Will Jeff Flake Stab Gun Owners in the Back? — One time? Or four?” Flake rates a zero from the League of Conservative Voters.
Despite the Arizona Republic’s super-sized efforts at whitewashing and repackaging him, Flake is beatable. Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and two-term conservative state senator has been through the McCain wood chipper— he actually accused her of being soft on ISIS terrorists! — and is ready to take on the marginal Flake.
Though Flake gives lip service criticizing government waste and advocates reducing federal spending, he is a committed proponent of the illegal invasion of the United States. The two issues are incompatible with one another, with costly benefits and numerous other services illegals access soaring astronomically, as they displace American workers in a still depressed economy. Don’t look for Jeff Flake to address what Immigration and Customs Enforcement refers to as a “crisis situation” on our porous border as illegal aliens boldly invade the U.S., claiming “refugee” status.
In fact, Flake and McCain were the architects of the Gang of Eight amnesty bill on which they colluded with the most liberal Senate Democrats, including Charles Schumer and Richard Durbin, and a couple of other Republicrats.
When Flake was in the House of Representatives, radical leftist Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois) Flake’s close associate and co-sponsor of amnesty legislation, wrote an article, “The Numbers Are On Our Side,” for Progress Illinois, in which he specifically thanked Jeff Flake for helping “turn more red states blue.”
In 2012, flagrant phony Flake was given more than a lift by McCain and retiring Sen. Jon Kyl. Even so, he barely made the cut against former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona.
As evidenced by his actions, his associations and his votes, Jeff Flake is beatable. Conservative Kelli Ward is up to the task. She needs our help to be competitive.
