Jeff Flake’s predictably outrageous oratorical spew

September 14, 2018

During a senate floor speech, in a fit of pompous presumptuousness — on which nearly out-the-door Jeff Flake has cornered the market — he uses the phrase, “At the risk of being presumptuous.”  This serves as the first clue that the Trump-bashing, low intellect Republican poser is off on another insufferable tirade aimed at President Trump. Breitbart carries a partial transcript of his Wednesday speech in which he called on his GOP colleagues to speak out against President Donald Trump’s threats to “democratic institutions,” adding, “if we say nothing then we’ve become accomplices with the destruction of these democratic norms.” If you’re inclined to read it, do so on an empty stomach.

This has been the modus operandi of lame-duck Flake, who opted not to run for a second senate term when state-wide polling showed him with a feeble 18 percent approval rating. No doubt the arrogant Flake initially thought his eyes were deceiving him and the numbers were a transposed 81 percent. His staff should have let him labor under that misguided notion. It would have been entertaining to see him kicked to the curb rather than hightailing it.

Flake, a man with no constituency, is relegated to saber-rattling at the man who stunningly achieved what Flake’s McMentor tried and failed at twice.

President Trump is unconventional, a trait that resonated with the Americans who put him in office. He is also an accomplished businessman who has brought his unique perspective, negotiating skills and ingenuity directly to the American people, lowering taxes, while creating the best economy and job market in decades. The president is a respected no-nonsense leader on the world stage opening unprecedented dialogues on denuclearization with Chinese and North Korean despots.

Outside of a career swilling at the public trough, Flake was a registered foreign agent for an African uranium mining company with ties to Iran, a fact he tried to conceal when initially running for the U.S. House of Representatives from his East Valley base.  Even then his word was worthless, as he reneged on his-self imposed term limit promise. When called out on his deception, he assumed his go-to absurd grin and told a rare truth, as he acknowledged, “I lied.”

Arizona deserves better than a preening, pathetic poseur with a mental acumen akin to the cattle grazing on his ancestral ranch in Northern Arizona. And like the livestock on that ranch, his crooked snout is always planted firmly in the trough of excessive egoism and self-indulgent posturing.

It’s tempting to dismiss Jeff Flake a “useful idiot,” but he is useful to no one — especially not the people of the Grand Canyon State.

Here’s the Flake caught on an open mic laughingly mocking the Republican party as “toast.” He got it wrong. It’s the not-so-slick trickster Flake who’s toast.

Ducey appoints Jon Kyl to fill senate vacancy

September 4, 2018

Although at the time of this posting an announcement is not yet up on Gov. Doug Ducey’s Press Release page, Fox News is reporting that Ducey has appointed former AZ Sen. Jon Kyl to fill the state’s U.S. Senate vacancy.  

The question to ask is why would Ducey opt for a 76-year-old place holder and McCain clone when he has the opportunity to make a decisive impact on the state?


Raging Meghan McMourner

Spiteful attack on President Trump redefines definition of eulogy

Anyone who has suffered the loss of a close family member knows the anguish in having to accept the reality of finality.

With that in mind, it might seem charitable to overlook what Meghan McCain offered as a eulogy to her father during his memorial service in Washington DC’s National Cathedral Saturday.

In addition to dealing with a slow, torturous demise of a loved one losing their cognitive faculties to a rapidly growing brain malignancy, accepting the fact of never again interacting with the person who was integral to your existence is beyond devastating. It must be raw anguish to endure multiple funerals for the same person in successive days, an excess even U.S. Presidents and European royalty resist.

The strain has to verge on intolerable. But it was also a choice. Clearly mourning daughter Meghan also made another choice, as she used the time reserved for tributes and saying farewell, to hurl insults and slurs, or as evident at Friday’s Funeral Number Two, to shoot sidelong eye daggers at Vice President Mike Pence, a deeply devout man who came to offer words of comfort. Taking a direct hit at President Trump‘s campaign slogan on Saturday, she blasted “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”

How many of us have known of specifically uninvited attendees at a memorial? The animus between McCain and President Trump was unconcealed.  But what did McCain’s dedicated Vice Presidential running mate Sarah Palin do to earn a “Do Not Attend” card?

The death of a loved one brings forth inconsolable emotions. They should not include rage directed at perceived or even actual adversaries. Both George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama were victorious over John McCain in his two failed quests for the presidency, yet McCain included them as he planned his own funeral services. They were invited to attend and speak. The captured pilot later returned to Vietnam in a spirit of accord and with an outstretched hand. Though he opportunistically ran under the Republican banner in red state Arizona, conservatives remained the targets of his continually erupting bile.

His daughter offers venomous words and her perpetually clenched fist — also aimed at conservatives — as she follows in the malicious political footsteps of her father.


Jeff the Flake returns to Africa, prefers gov’t to U.S.

August 4, 2018

Loose cannon Flake embarrasses himself again

The aptly named Jeff Flake is once again in his beloved Africa.  He was first there on a church mission, later returning to Namibia in the 1990’s where he was employed as a registered foreign agent working for Rossing Uranium, a mining company with ties to Iran and one of the world‘s largest supplies of nuclear fuel. He lobbied on behalf of the company, opening doors in Washington D.C. —- a job, as the HuffPost points out, Flake did his best to keep under wraps as he campaigned for the U.S. House as a “political outsider.”

During his single senate term, due to expire with the coming election, fake Republican Flake cozied up to Barack Obama, and accompanied him and the congressional black caucus to Kenya, Obama’s familial homeland.

Now Flake, once again jetting at taxpayer’s expense, is in Zimbabwe, emulating Jimmy Carter by overseeing questionable elections in third world countries. Flake’s observation in the wake of deadly violence and claims of rigged results?  According to this Breitbart News report, “Democracy doesn’t get any better than this.” His vacuous tweet was enthusiastic.

This past year, Flake, too haughty and ignorant to be content merely being an American citizen, proudly referred to himself asa globalist.”

Not only does Flake bring to mind the liberal Jimmy Carter, 95, but also his far left counterpart, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, now 85. In 2012, she actually praised the South African Constitution (video) over the Constitution of the United States.

Flake is finishing his first and last senate term due to bottom dragging 18% approval ratings after incessant eruptions of Trump-hatred — from tedious tirades delivered in an empty senate chamber to gifting his vitriolic anti-Trump spew to the appreciative alphabet networks. The resulting abysmal polling caused him to rethink a reelection bid, and avoid the embarrassment of a humiliating defeat at the polls.

We’ve long suspected that the disrespected junior senator has had a uncertain grasp on reality…but this latest escapade proves it beyond a doubt. Unconstrained rage has been noted as a symptom of early onset dementia. Jeff might not only be sickening. He may also be sick.


Egomaniacal Jeff Flake stages anti-Trump tantrum

Trump Derangement Syndrome afflicts AZ’s embarrassing Republicrat

Jeff Flake, unable to run for reelection due to staggeringly low polling numbers among his home state Republicans, has instead set his sights on becoming Arizona’s embarrassment. He began his descent with a 140-page pamphlet masquerading as a book, sticky-fingering the title directly from that of Barry Goldwater’s 1960 iconic book, ‘Conscience of a Conservative,’ which described the fundamentals of conservatism. Though Flake pilfered the title, he never actually comprehended conservatism.  He knew the word started with the letter “C” and was multi-syllabic, but confused ‘conservatism’ with ‘contrariness.‘

Showboating is the not too bright Flake’s stock in trade.  Emboldened by the attention he’s generated, McCain’s doppelganger Jeff Flake plows ahead. The left-wing networks — notably ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and their ilk, are ready repositories for his hateful spews directed at President Donald Trump. Having an “R” after his name, no matter how misplaced the designation is, makes him a valuable tool in their ongoing scheme to denigrate and destabilize the president.

Flake is noted for flashing his inappropriately placed grin, ever mindful of giving his capped teeth a workout. His bleach-streaked hair is receding, but stiffly coiffed. Lies flow out of his mouth with the same intensity as a spewing, fiery, lava eruption.

His latest assault follows President Trump’s comments at a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Flake took to the senate floor declaring Trump’s remarks verged on treason. “The president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy,” he said. “In so doing, he dimmed the light of freedom ever so slightly in our own country.” Though not explicitly calling the president a traitor, his intent was clear, since Article III, Sec. 3 of the U.S. Constitution says treason consists of giving “aid and comfort” to America’s enemies.’

Was it traitorous when Flake accompanied then-President Barack Obama to grovel at the feet of Raul Castro, Cuba’s communist dictator? Where were the aggrieved pundits then?

Flake, whose most significant job before feeding at the public trough was in the 1990s when he and his wife lived in the African nation of Namibia, as he worked as a registered foreign agent, opening D.C. doors for Rossing Uranium, a mining company that is among the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel —- and partially owned by Iran. National Journal’s exposé during his initial congressional campaign stated, “Flake’s little-known time in the influence industry stands in contrast to his carefully cultivated image as a Washington outsider.”

Now as his congressional career screeches to a halt, he devotes his time to joining with the Trump-hating Democrats. The latest Rasmussen polling shows Congress holds a 15% approval rating. President Trump polls at 44%, with 31% strongly approving of his performance.

Those crickets you hear chirping? That’s the sound emanating from AZ GOP chairman Jonathan Lines, refusing once again to rein in the party’s embarrassment. Flake’s despicable antics are particularly damaging to Republican candidates approaching the upcoming elections. They also insult Republican voters —  nationwide. Lines apparently doesn’t care.


Is this a rational McQuestion?

AZ Republic reporters engage in foolishness, misuse of English language

Our Friday post was titled, “AZ Republic engages in more liberal lunacy.” We have to admit our timing was off with that posting. The same day online edition of the newspaper, which we missed, headlines this inane question:

“It has been one year since Sen. John McCain’s brain cancer was discovered. What’s next?” The sub-header reads, “Observers unsure on McCain prognosis, his return to D.C.

The accompanying article, calling the July 2017 dire diagnosis “a mysterious — and complicated — milestone,” required the combined efforts of two reporters.

A separate report marking the year the Republic irrationally and repeatedly refers to as a “milestone,” details Cindy McCain expressing gratitude to her husband’s caregivers. He has not been seen in public since last December.

The term milestone marks an achievement. Having Mayo Clinic neurosurgeons give the life-altering diagnosis of glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, is a ridiculous misuse of the word. McCain, who will be 82 in August, has been diagnosed with the same horrendous disease that took the lives of his friend Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden’s son, Beau.

SRAZ’s policy has advanced to not including direct links to items in the failing disseminator of foolishness. But our readers are a knowledgeable group, continually demonstrating common sense with cogent comments. For that reason, we’re giving you the opportunity to answer the question. “What’s next?”


Ignorant Millennials dis an as yet unnamed SCOTUS justice

July 9, 2018

Pres. Trump’s announcement of Supreme Court nominee is scheduled for tonight at 9 p.m. (ET), 6 p.m. Arizona time

The Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic employs two pages and an oversize photo to bemoan the lack of Millennials — those 37 and younger —  running for local public office. The photo shows a line of young adults waiting to hear Socialist Bernie Sanders, a long-in-the-tooth 2016 presidential candidate older than most of their grandfathers. One thing their grandfathers have on them is Gramps knows a thing or two about the failures of Socialism — having seen the toppling of the Berlin wall and the failure of the repressive Marxist regimes of the Soviet Union, Cuba and Venezuela.

Mark J. Perry, a professor of economics and finance at the University of Michigan, writing for the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) authors an informative article titled, Why Socialism Always Fails.”

The far left newspaper details the flawed campaign of a Scottsdale City Council candidate lacking in basic knowledge of the rigors of campaigning. After her petition signatures were successfully challenged she decided politics was not for her, saying the experience left her “disenchanted,” stifling her desire for a future campaign for public office. Rigorous campaigns are not the purview of faint of heart “snowflakes.”

At 9 p.m. (ET) tonight. President Donald Trump is expected to announce his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who recently announced his retirement. Kennedy, turning 82 later this month, was appointed to the high court in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan.

Watch as those who weren’t born at that time and most likely couldn’t name any of the current justices, are quick to authoritatively opine on a justice who has yet to be nominated or confirmed.  It’s all about liberal indoctrination, racial and gender politics and baseless Trump hatred.
