Jeff Flake refers to illegal aliens as “Americans by choice”

August 22, 2017

In a blunderous description reminiscent of failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who said illegals aliens come to America as an “act of love” — Jeff Flake now calls these same foreign invaders who disregard our sovereign border, “Americans by choice.” Jeb favored a “pathway to citizenship” to allow those here in violation of the law to “come out of the shadows.” At the time, Jeff Flake praised the absurd contention that breaking our laws was “an act of love.”

“Truth is, I agree with Jeb, and I applaud him for having the guts to say it,” Flake posted on Facebook as reported by Huffington Post in 2014. “Growing up here in Arizona, I’ve seen what motivates those who come here illegally. Sure, some come with the intent to do harm or simply to take advantage of our generosity. But many come to find work to feed their families. To lump everyone who crosses the border illegally into the same class is unfair and unproductive.”

Now, in a sappy op-ed in the New York Times, Jeff Flake takes another potshot at President Donald Trump’s immigration polices as he recounts his family’s ranch and his father’s hiring practices of employing illegals. The fact that some were repeatedly deported and  returned didn’t bother the senior Flake, who rehired them.  His bottom line took precedence.

The New York Times is the same left-wing newspaper former Arizona Congressman John Shadegg, a McCain protégé, ran to as he hurled insults at Arizonans who simply want our nation’s laws respected. Shadegg went across the country to the liberal eastern press to call us “xenophobic and intolerant,“ invectives he never used to our faces, especially as he solicited our donations and votes.

Roy Beck, founder and president of NumbersUSA provides an in-depth report on amnesty-supporter Sen. Jeff Flake, titled,Sen. Flake extols his family’s illegal-alien hiring in attack on RAISE Act.

This evening President Donald Trump will address a rally of supporters at the Phoenix Convention Center. No rational conservative would either expect or desire Jeff Flake, a persistent detractor of the president to show up. Ditto McCain, who has relentlessly opposed President Trump and his policies.  Both men, who colluded with Democrat leaders on the “Gang of 8” amnesty scheme, were booed (video) by elected Republican state committeemen at a GOP statutory when they were slipped in the back door and led onstage by former AZ GOP chairman Robert Graham.

McCain had previously been censured by the same delegates.  He retaliated by plotting with San Francisco-based Obama donors and others of their ilk to purge conservative elected precinct committeemen from their posts. These internecine purges been McCain’s ongoing commitment, even taking place in precincts this past election cycle. 

Will Arizona’s Republican U.S. House members show up to honor our Republican Commander in Chief? Their presence  — or absence — will speak volumes as the 2018 elections roll around. Those who ran and were elected as Republicans are Martha McSally, CD 2; Paul Gosar, CD 4; Andy Biggs, CD 5; David Schweikert, CD 6; and Trent Franks, CD 8.


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.


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.

Jeff Flake: Reaping what he has sown sheds additional light on this deceptive RINO.


Not so benign business group behind deceptive ads

August 9, 2017

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) and Jeff the Flake have been longtime supporters of trade pacts that harm American workers

The ads are showing up on television with regularity. They begin by saying the economy is down, Americans are out of work and the tax system is “broken.” That word piqued our interest since it is routinely used by those on the left or the amnesty promoting establishment elite — typified by members of the Chambers of Commerce — illegal alien profiteers, who claim our immigration system is “broken.”

Conveniently ignored is the fact that the Dow has repeatedly broken all time record highs since the beginning of the year and unemployment is down, coinciding with President Trump taking office.

Sure enough, the same word is used by a group calling itself the Business Roundtable,  purchaser of the ads.  Its immigration page after cutting through the baloney —serves as a beacon illuminating its barely concealed agenda.

 It also contends the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) will “open markets for U.S. exports and support U.S. growth and jobs.” This unsavory deal was made by Barack Obama. President Donald Trump withdrew from it within days of his inaugural. His move was no surprise since he spoke of his intentions as he campaigned, saying the suspect deal would send jobs overseas and benefit special interests rather than American workers. Voters listened and enthusiastically supported the business titan turned presidential candidate.

The Business Roundtable, using Obama double talk, calls the TPP “a modern trade agreement for a modern economy that removes foreign tariffs (taxes) and other trade barriers and sets strong and enforceable rules for free and fair trade, which will make American companies, workers and farmers more competitive in the international market.”

Believe that, and we’ve got a bridge to sell you.

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin’s fact-filled commentary on the topic,Why America hates the GOP-Obamatrade deal,” written two years ago was right on target then and remains so today.

It doesn’t take a seer to realize the Business Roundtable is a liberal farce. On Tuesday, it sent this letter extolling the virtues of NAFTA to U.S. Trade Representative, Ambassador Robert Lighthizer; Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross; Secretary of State Rex Tillerson; Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin and Director of the National Economic Council Gary Cohn. Pay particular attention to the list of 108 signers.

Regardless of their shallow words, the business signers want nothing more than to lead American workers off the economic cliff as they push for massive increases in cheap foreign labor, including imported tech workers from India and China over highly educated, highly skilled American workers who are forced to train their replacements.

Malkin concludes her enlightening commentary with this bold question, “What part of “Stop selling out America!” does D.C. not understand?

But, we’ve saved the best for the lastThe Guardian reveals John McCain received $51,700 in the first quarter of 2015 from business interests desiring the TPP be fast-tracked. He later expressed disappointment when President Trump withdrew from the pact. And Obama’s willing toady Jeff Flake? Despite the American people’s overwhelming objection to it, he said Congress is going to have to suck it up and ratify the agreement because “it simply must be done,” even in the face of hostile opposition to trade along the campaign trail.

Is this the guy you’d send back to the senate in 2018?


Jeff Flake, the time to reregister as a Democrat is now

August 7, 2017

Dem to Republican switches should encourage Flake to “come out” and feel comfortable in his own skin

An intriguing scramble is taking place in the political arena. Donald Trump’s presidential triumph was based not only on the fact that he expertly outmaneuvered 16 other Republican challengers, but on the colossal missteps of liberals — such as the disastrous round table discussion which relegated Hillary Clinton to the West Virginia back burner in a traditionally blue state.

In 1992, Democrat Bill Clinton carried West Virginia by a solid 13 percentage points. In November 2016 Republican Donald Trump made those numbers look like chump change as he more than tripled that percentage — sweeping the state by 40 points.

Declining coal mining and the resulting job losses clearly illustrate the disconnect (video) elitist Dems have with their own base. Barack Obama promised to bankrupt the industry— an issue on which his heir apparent Hillary Clinton hung her hat. It was a loser and so was she.

The issue so resonates with the coal producing state that West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, a Democrat, appeared at a  rally featuring President Donald Trump, switching parties on Friday to become a Republican. The previous day, he addressed the crowd of Trump supporters estimated at 9,000, telling them, “This man is a good man. He’s got a backbone. He’s got real ideas. He cares about America. He cares about us in West Virginia.”

Here in Arizona the opposite is true. Jeff Flake has shown an increasing liberal proclivity. He said was unable to support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and wouldn’t vote for him. He has now come out with a book bashing conservatives, and Sunday appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” taking the GOP to task for not shutting down the “birther” movement, which he claims Donald Trump led.

The more pertinent question is: Why doesn’t the Arizona Republican Party shut down anti-GOP Jeff Flake? He has repeatedly been in opposition to mainstream Republicans and hostile to conservative issues. Yet the AZ GOP is bizarrely gearing up to support Flake in 2018. A recall of the state chairman is gaining steam.

In 2015, Democrat state senator Carlyle Begay, representing the Navajo Nation switched parties to become a Republican, saying  it’s been the Republicans who have worked with him to “improve education, jobs and infrastructure” in the tribal communities where unemployment is as high as 80 percent. Watch his video announcement.

U.S. Rep. Bob Stump represented Arizona in Congress for 26 years — the first five as a Democrat. Elected in 1976, he reregistered as a Republican in 1981 after voting for President Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts. He served as chairman of both the Armed Services Committee and Veterans Affairs Committee, working diligently on behalf of the military and veterans. In his 2003 obituary, the New York Times correctly identified him as a “strong conservative.” No rational person would make that claim about Jeff Flake, but that’s what his pop-up Internet ads are deceptively calling him.

For decades Arizona conservatives have endured Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) misspent time in D.C. as a Democrat enabler, colluding with liberals on myriad issues running the gamut from amnesty for illegals to shamefully casting the deciding vote as he sided with the unified Dems against restructuring the unsustainable Obamacare monstrosity, though rates in Arizona have soared 116%. ASS’s time has come and nearly gone, but Jeff Flake should do the honorable thing and come out as the Democrat he is. The party switch didn’t hurt Congressman Stump. He was reelected for the next 21 years.

In this recentMy Turncolumn on the AZ Republic’s editorial page, Flake is  encouraged to ditch the Republican Party.

It’s an idea whose time has come.
