Poll: Jeff Flake in deep trouble with AZ voters

August 25, 2017

As Flake lags 14 points behind conservative Dr. Kelli Ward, desperation to retain senate seat leads to recrafting of his flaky image 

A recently released poll assessing Arizona’s 2018 U.S. Senate race does not bode well for rowdy Republicrat and first term incumbent Jeff Flake. Having done everything humanly possible to insult and demean Donald Trump—  from the onset of his presidential campaign through his first seven months in the White House — his has not been a wise course of action in a state where the president is popular with the Republican base.

Townhall reports on a statewide survey of likely Arizona voters conducted by the Arizona firm of High Ground which shows Flake lagging a serious fourteen points behind his primary Republican opponent Dr. Kelli Ward. In a contrived match-up with Democrat U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (CD-9), who has not opened a campaign, Flake is eight points behind. He’s worked diligently burnishing his liberal credentials and deserves the bottom-dragging numbers he’s earned.

Conservative Ward is a former two-term state senator and physician. Sinema launched her political career running unsuccessfully as a Green party candidate for the state House. She then tried her luck as a Democrat and fared much better.  In the intervening years, Sinema has cleverly modified her radical positions, altered her appearance and stopped bashing married women and our military, even appearing in a campaign ad sympathetically interacting with the parents of a fallen soldier.

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.”

Worried that his pomposity will cost him the senate seat he so desires to keep, Flake tried the magician’s trick known as “misdirection,” Thursday on ‘Fox and Friends.’ His latest ploy is casting himself as “principled,” saying “I’ll continue to follow my principles” outrageously stating  he has helped President Trump on certain issues —  pointing to his vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. Flake must be suffering from memory loss, but ours is keen. It was Jeff Flake, Obama’s global traveling companion and basketball teammate who personally accompanied Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court nominee, introducing him to senators, and saying “it was time to confirm him” to the high court.

Fortunately’ Donald Trump was elected President of the United  States — without the votes of Jeff Flake, John McCain and their families. As president, one of his first acts was to nominated Judge Neil Grosuch to fill the vacancy left by the unexpected death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. Gorsuch now sits on the U.S. Supreme Court despite Jeff Flake, not because of him.

You may have thought Fox was “all in” for McCain in 2010, wait until you see this “pander fest” featuring Brian Kilmeade with Arizona’s Junior Senator on what we’ll call, ‘Fox Befriends Jeff Flake.’ The verbal contortions Kilmeade goes through to try and help Flake are cringe-worthy and ridiculous. Watch it here. We suggest you eat afterwards.

Today we are reposting a link to the fact-filledSo you think you know Jeff Flake?  Think again.” It’s definitely worth taking time to review this weekend.

Pres. Trump greeted by capacity crowd at Phx. Convention Center

August 23, 2017

Deceitful Arizona Republic distorts the facts to play into its leftist agenda, but wishing doesn’t make it so

It was an event that made waiting in the long lines in Phoenix’ blistering 107° August heat worthwhile.  President Donald Trump returned to the Phoenix Convention Center venue that jump started his presidential campaign and was as pointed in his comments as he was on his wildly successful road to the White House. Trump recalled, “ Phoenix was the scene of my first rally speech, and we knew something special was happening here. Believe me, Arizona,” he said, “I will never forget.”

Following a tour of a border patrol station in Yuma, where a wall has actually worked, he was met by a crowd of thousands in Phoenix. Dr. Ben Carson, a former Republican presidential opponent delivered opening remarks to the enthusiastic crowd, noting the Democrats don’t want to give the president any credit for his accomplishments. Rev. Franklin Graham delivered the opening prayer, evidencing the strong evangelical bond the president has forged. Dr. Alveda King, a former Democrat member of the Georgia legislature, now an ardent pro-life Republican, was on hand to support the president.  She is a niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Vice President Mike Pence won over the crowd as he introduced Donald Trump as “the man you helped elect as the 45th President of the United States.” Pence called the president “a man of his word and a man of action,” declaring “President Trump’s leadership inspires me every day.”

At one point in his address, the president shouted a question to the crowd, “Do the people in this room like Sheriff Joe?” His inquiry was met with cheers and applause. “So was Sheriff Joe convicted for doing his job?“ he asked. “He should have had a jury trial, but I’ll make a prediction, he’ll be just fine.” The president continued, “I won’t do it tonight, because I don’t want to cause any controversy, but Sheriff Joe can feel good.”

So will the rest of us who believe the career lawman was the object of a politicized witch hunt.

He also addressed Arizona’s two senators without naming either one, saying he was advised not to mention any names, so I won’t, “but we were one vote away from repealing and replacing Obamacare…” It escaped no one’s notice that he was referring to the thumbs down deciding vote of Arizona’s Senior Senator, now known by the acronym ASS on this site.

In discussing the “other senator” he recently called “toxic,” President Trump defined him as “weak on crime and the border,“ adding “no one knows who the hell he is.”

The American people voted for immigration control,” he said.  “That’s one reason I’m here.”

It was hot, the wait was long, but the rally attendees were flying high after eight years in the political wilderness, now hearing a president tell the truth about the border, the biased media — he identified as “attacking my supporters,” and his plans for America’s future. “It’s finally time to rebuild our country, ” he told the cheering crowd.

The Drudge Report news aggregator, which appears to have turned on the president was not above mischaracterizing the protesters across the street and reporting that “tear gas filled the streets.” Phoenix police made a point of saying there was no tear gas used, but smoke canisters were employed to disperse the far left, Nazi-inspired fringe group Antifa (contraction of Anti-Fascist). They are thugs, whose identifier is all black attire, and whose core belief is speech they do not agree with is ‘hate speech’ and has no First Amendment protections. They are criminals who destroy property, smashing windows and igniting fires, as part of their “protests.”

Imagine our disgust this morning to see the declaration-of-war sized headline in the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic declaring VIOLENCE ERUPTS and a staged looking photo of a man on his knees seemingly begging the long line of police for his life. The editorial is titled “Trump returns to Ariz with divisive message.”

If you weren’t able to attend, we provide this video. Watch the crowd. Listen to the truth.


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.

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.


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.


Jeff Flake: The image polishing begins anew

August 11, 2017

Large swaths of the world are in chaos. Islamic terrorists are committed to the slaughter of innocents with the ultimate goal of taking over the planet. A North Korean madman is threatening nuclear destruction. The leftist World Economic Forum cites catastrophic weather or the reliable fallback of Climate Change as the ‘most pressing’ risk looming in our future.

But the Arizona Republic sees things through a different lens. Now that it has satisfied its blood lust in relentlessly pursuing former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it has other political fish to fry to fulfill its liberal agenda. 

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) a Republicrat who spent decades in Washington colluding with Democrats, is suffering from what his Mayo Clinic doctors refer to as an “aggressive form of brain cancer.”  His days of negatively impacting the political scene are nearing an end. His kiss off to conservatives was casting the deciding vote against repealing Obamacare, a vengeful finger in the eye to President Donald Trump who he refused to support during the 2016 election.

 His like-minded junior senate partner, Jeff Flake, has been taking pre-election heat from every corner for his arrogant attacks on the president in particular and conservatives in general. This week he was chastised by Republican National Committee chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, for his skewering of Republicans in his new 140-page pamphlet being called a book, carrying a title that was previously used by Barry Goldwater in 1960. 

Jeff Flake, not known for having an original thought, will be facing voters in 2018.  The newspaper is worried enough about keeping this reckless open borders, amnesty supporter in place that the morning edition ignores all of the turmoil to strategically place him above-the-fold, with the appropriate headline, “A blaze’s aftermath.”  He is shown surveying the scene of the early summer Goodwin forest fire in the conservative voter base of Yavapai County. with an accompanying three-page article. The task is a major undertaking since the aptly named Flake holds the distinction of having the lowest approval rating of any senator in the 100-member body.
