AZ GOP’s Jonathan Lines exposed as establishment trickster

April 18, 2017

Establishment syndicate’s building blocks carefully being put in place to aid Flake

We are happy to redirect our conservative readers to The Arizona Daily Independent’s Sunday cartoon and accompanying article, AZGOP Rules Of Order: Sunday’s Comic.

The folks at ADI not only got it right, but very right!  Be sure to read the linked article, Lines Picks Kenney For AZGOP Executive Director, Sparks Outrage. Duplicitous Robert Graham, Jonathan Lines immediate predecessor continues to pull the strings on his compliant, hand selected marionette.

Matthew Kenney’s new position as GOP Executive Director has but one goal in mind: Keeping Jeff Flake in the U.S. Senate.

Let’s review who Jeff Flake actually is:

Jeff Flake’s refusal to endorse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was followed by his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump “can’t and shouldn’t win.  Not voting for Trump put Flake firmly in Hillary Clinton’s column.

Flake has colluded with liberals on gun control

After meeting with Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court nominee, Jeff Flake tried to fast track him to the High Court.

Jeff Flake is a committed amnesty supporter who aligned with John McCain and a host of Democrats to orchestrate the Gang of Eight amnesty bill, which fortunately failed. As a member of the U.S. House, Flake labored tirelessly alongside Illinois radical leftist Luis Gutierrez promoting amnesty to “turn more red states blue.“  Then his staunch amnesty position wobbled so dramatically approaching a tough Primary, the Arizona Republic declared he was no longer a statesman, but a mere “politician.” They needn’t have worried. He did a switcheroo immediately after the votes were counted and was back on his amnesty perch.

Flake has no core. Prior to his political career, Flake worked as a lobbyist and registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel —. which operates a mine in the African country of Namibia where Flake did his LDS mission. Flake earned a substantial salary opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm which had deep financial ties to Iran.

In 2012 exhibiting pretzel-like repositioning on Iran, Flake was running to replace the retiring Jon Kyl. The League of Conservation Voters Victory Fund and Majority PAC launched an $800,000 television ad campaign outlining the risks of sending former uranium mining lobbyist Jeff Flake to the Senate.

Facts are stubborn things. Even the slippery Jeff Flake can’t hide from them. Arizona voters can’t risk returning Jeff Flake to the U.S. Senate. Fortunately, we have an excellent candidate in Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician, military wife, and former two-term state senator who spent 4 years burnishing her conservative credentials in the Arizona legislature.

Check out Jeff Flake‘s bottom dragging Liberty Score on Conservative Review. He has also been ranked as themost unpopular senator in the nation,” as reported by AZFamily.com, Channel 3.

 


Good luck trying to gain access to Jeff Flake’s town hall tonight

April 13, 2017

Prediction: East Valley folks will circle the wagons around Flake

After newly elected conservative U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (AZ CD-5) had his first town hall meeting invaded by boorish Democrats on Tuesday, Republicrat Jeff Flake will be holding another of his tightly controlled meetings this evening.

It’s not Democrats Flake needs to concern himself with.  Arizona’s junior senator, who will be standing for reelection next year, has nothing to fear from the left. His hard lined stance in opposition to Republican nominee Donald Trump — who carried Arizona and all of the state‘s 11 electoral votes — mirrored that of Hillary Clinton most strident supporters.

Flake needs to figure a way to infect Arizona Republicans with pre-election amnesia. We need to forget his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump “can‘t and shouldn‘t win, Flake’s indefensible  positions have left him with weak support, that even his oddly inappropriate smirk can’t reverse. He has been quoted as saying, “that’s the beauty of a six-year term” meaning he hopes our memories are short. Due to his leftward lurch, Flake forgets the symbol of the Republican Party is the long memoried elephant.

AZ’s Channel 3 covered first term senator Flake’s unpopularity, revealing him as the most unpopular U.S. Senator in the nation.

Besides blasting GOP nominee Trump, Flake also urged support of Barack Obama’s lame duck appointee, Democrat Merrick Garland, to the U.S. Supreme Court. Saner heads prevailed since Garland would have pitched the high court irreversibly to the left in the near future and influenced decisions for decades to come. Once elected, President Trump appointed Judge Neil Gorsuch. Though he was unanimously confirmed to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, Democrats pulled out all stops to derail him. The Republican president Flake refused to vote for was ultimately victorious in changing the face of the most powerful court in the land.

Flake’s event this evening is slated for 7 p.m. at the Mesa Convention Center. It’s advertised as having attendance based on a first come, first served basis. Count on Flake’s core East Valley base dutifully standing in line for hours before the doors open to ensure they get those “first come, first served” seats, in an effort to save him from embarrassing questions.

Unwilling to face Republican voters, John McCain, Flake‘s equally unpopular mentor recently took questions via the safe Facebook Live route.

Flake and McCain have experience with such contrivances. Their tightly controlled  “Conversation on Immigration,” when they were leaders of the Gang of Eight amnesty scheme with Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, a host of liberals and a couple of other RINOs is just one example of their duplicity.

They want our votes, but have no interest in hearing our voices.


Refurbishing of RINO Flake begins

Jeff Flake’s liberal image: The facts speak for themselves

Jeff Flake is running for reelection in 2018, but first he needs to figure a way to infect Arizona Republicans with pre-election amnesia. We need to forget his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump “can’t and shouldn’t win.  Flake’s positions have left him with weak support, that even his often inappropriate grin can’t undo.

Now the AZGOP Daily Update, a creation of GOP state chair Jonathan Lines — billing itself as “The Only Official Newsletter of the Arizona Republican Party!” (Italics and exclamation point theirs) — which many regard as a slam at the popular Republican Briefs —- exhibits not only a chronic case of memory loss, but an acceptance of Flake’s marginal Republicanism.

Know this: There is not an iota of difference between Flake and McCain. They both relentlessly push amnesty for illegals, and maintained close relationships with then-President Barack Obama. Flake has colluded with liberals on gun controlMcCain advised Obama on forging his legacy. Flake met with Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court pick and actually opined that it was time to start thinking about confirming him.

The AZGOP Daily Update has taken up the whitewash, posturing with this redundant headline, “McCain and Flake Look To Help Law Enforcement Against Criminal Illegal Aliens,” obviously forgetting that ALL illegals are criminals — entering our country by stealth. Imagine that a group broke into your home while you were at work, helped themselves to everything you’ve worked to obtain— demanded you educate their kids and provide them health care and other benefits. When you returned home they wanted your car keys to pick up some friends to join the festivities. That’s what we’re dealing with as a nation.

Arizona’s devious senate duo tout their introduction of a bill “to continue the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) providing reimbursements for state, local, and tribal governments to offset the costs of incarceration for certain undocumented criminal aliens.”  Such a swindle should be renamed to form the acronym SCAM, which more honestly describes the conveniently timed bill.

Jeff Flake is a Libertarian who initially ran as a Republican to get elected.  He’s definitely not a conservative. His progressively close ties with Democrats are only scuttled when elections roll around.

And octogenarian John McCain? His amnesia is indistinguishable from senility (video). An economic wizard, he’s pushing for the elimination of dollar bills, replacing them with dollar equivalent coins claiming such a move will save nearly $14 billion in taxpayer money and generate at least $4.4 billion. He doesn’t explain how.  He’s already forgotten the dollar coins that were costly flops. One named for Lewis and Clark’s Shoshone Indian guide Sacagawea, was minted in 2000 and its predecessor the Susan B. Anthony coin, minted from 1979 to 1981, were impracticable and unpopularexactly like Jeff Flake, as reported by .AZ Family Channel 3 TV.


McCain & Flake’s amnesty pal Schumer is a jerk

March 29, 2017

Sen. Chuck Schumer’s bad behavior not limited to the senate

No one has ever accused Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) of being refined. He is known for being shrill, petty and arrogant. In fact, he has long been described by friend and foe alike as an “incorrigible publicity hound”

This Fox News report detailing Sen. Chuck Schumer’s lack of basic manners, self-control and unhinging over other people’s election choices in inappropriate settings, explains why he was the go-to-guy for John McCain and Jeff Flake when they put together their infamous ‘Gang of Eight’ amnesty scheme.

The Arizona duo chose four of the furthest left Democrats and two other Republicrats to join them in their failed misadventure. So committed is Schumer to open borders, he introduced a bill in 2012 intending to kill Arizona’s SB1070, and similar laws throughout the country as he anticipated the Supreme Court could rule in favor of the states.

Anytime you hear the words “Immigration Reform,”  “Comprehensive,” or the phrase “Our immigration system is broken,” let your antenna rise to their highest level, since those are the words used to suppress the truth about the invasion that is taking place in the United States. Our immigration system is generous and welcoming to actual immigrants who enter this country legally and choose to become Americans. Don’t allow the amnesty peddlers and illegal labor profiteers to confound our language.  Illegals are neither “immigrants” nor “migrants.”

The question to ask McCain and Flake — if they ever come out of hiding and actually face their constituents — is, “Why are you intent on expanding the Democrat Party?” 

Ann Coulter wrote,Hispanicked GOP elite: They’ll respect us in the morning,” four years ago. Her facts still apply although the figures have undoubtedly increased. If you read it in 2013, it’s time to reacquaint yourself with a healthy dose of reality. If you missed it, this is your chance. Coulter addresses the myth that Hispanics are “natural Republicans.” The information is invaluable as President Trump prepares to fulfill his campaign promise of building a wall along our sovereign southern border. We have a right to know who is entering our country and public officials have a moral obligation to protect Americans in these perilous times.


Cranky McCain urges Trump to “do some outreach” — to him

March 25, 2017

John McCain, still smarting from the drubbing he took during his 2008 failed presidential bid, continues to hammer President Donald Trump at any opportunity. Oddly, he ended up forming a cozy alliance with Barack Obama who trounced him, even routinely meeting with him at the White House to help formulate Obama’s legacy.

But populist Trump, swept into office by American people tired of the political status quo, was a bridge too far for the octogenarian Republicrat, who cultivated a “maverick“ image to conceal his liberal bent. McCain not only withdrew his short-lived support from the GOP presidential nominee, he — and his doppelganger Jeff Flake — publicly announced they would not vote for the successful businessman who ignited a groundswell of enthusiasm not seen in the American electorate in decades.

Despite all indications to the contrary,  Flake was so certain Hillary Clinton would win in 2016, that he urged support of Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s choice to replace iconic conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died unexpectedly earlier that year.

Trump has nominated Federal Appellate Judge Neil Gorsuch, an unflappable man with impeccable credentials.

Ignoring Trump’s steady adherence to his campaign promises since his inauguration, McCain’s focus is on the fact that he hasn’t met President Trump in person since he took office.

And where does he air his complaints? At the German Marshall Fund’s Brussels Forum using that platform to question Donald Trump’s foreign policy leadership. McCain’s topic was titled, Trump, Transatlantic Partnership.”

What displays better form than to bash the President of the United States on foreign soil?

Here at home, McCain has called for a select committee to investigate his charge of Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election and unsupported  ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. McCain is convinced Congress lacks the credibility to “handle this alone.” He never called for similar investigations of Democrats Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Given his hostility, it wouldn’t be a surprise to find McCain blaming Pres. Trump for the change of longtime symbols on the Monopoly game board or revealing that the Girl Scout’s popular Thin Mint cookies are actually fattening.

Is it any wonder President Trump hasn’t made time to fit this petulant antagonist onto his calendar?


SCOTUS nominee Gorsuch grilled by legion of lessers & UPDATE

March 21, 2017

Unanimously confirmed to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals by the Senate in 2006

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is among the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee who have turned the U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings into a side-show. Imagine 10th Circuit Court of Appeals judge Neil Gorsuch, a man of acknowledged integrity having to endure being grilled by Blumenthal, who is best known for lying about serving in Vietnam. His 2010 admission came cloaked in defiance as he said,  “On a few occasions I have misspoken about my service, and I regret that and I take full responsibility, But I will not allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service to our country.” 

Could there be a more outstanding example of Demo Speak?

Not only does Blumental, a former elected Attorney General, want Judge Gorsuch to repudiate the president who nominated him, he virtually needs to swear a blood oath against him and his progeny in perpetuity.

John McCain and Jeff Flake’s go-to Democrat, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, playing to his fellow left wingers, has vowed to fight Gorsuch and said he has a “strong presumption against” the nominee. Schumer is the man who has actually called forchaosin order to get his way. Liberals are still smarting over Obama’s failed recess appointment of Merrick Garland to the high court.

But as conservative commentator Katie Pavlich reminds us, when Neil Gorsuch was nominated to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals by President George W. Bush in 2006, he was confirmed unanimously 95-0 in the Senate. Chuck Schumer, along with Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden and a number of other Democrats in the Senate, voted in approval. 

Stay vigilant. Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, a pseudo Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, met with Democrat Merrick Garland, lame duck Obama’s Supreme Court recess appointee and actually opined that it was time to start thinking about confirming him.

Remember that colossal betrayal as Flake, who repeatedly declared he would not vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, attempts to reconfigure himself as a conservative in advance of his 2018 reelection. Don’t be conned.

Jeff Flake an embarrassment at Gorsuch SCOTUS hearing

Proving he is unfit for the senate position he was elected to and will be running to retain in 2018, Jeff Flake, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wastes Judge Neil Gorsuch’s time and that of interested viewers, with ridiculous questions supplied by his sons and other relatives.

This was an example: “Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses, or 1 horse-sized duck?”

Acquaint yourself with a couple of his stellar sons. This is Tanner. This is Austin.

Jeff Flake tried to fast track liberal on US Supreme Court

March 17, 2017

Taking an awkward stab at affability, Jeff Flake recently sent out this tweet referencing the upcoming hearings for Supreme Court nominee, federal appellate judge Neil Gorsuch. Most of Flake’s followers don’t appear to be fans, which makes sense when you’re ranked as the least popular U.S. Senator in the nation. Slippery and self-serving, he’s equally distrusted by Democrats and Republicans.

Don’t be taken in by Flake’s weather-related cordiality toward President Trump’s high court nominee.  When Flake‘s basketball and traveling chum Barack Obama nominated Democrat Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy created by the unexpected death of conservative icon Antonin Scalia, Flake was eager to promote hearings. He was also willing to presume Hillary Clinton would be elected president.

Remember Flake’s comment regarding Republican nominee Donald Trump as he made the rounds of the liberal network programs to bash Trump? Flake’s refusal to endorse Donald Trump was followed by his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump can’t and shouldn’t win.

Flake, configuring himself as a soothsayer, prophet, and presidential diviner was quoted in October 2016, by Politico:

“I said if we were in a position like we were in in (not a typo) ‘96 and we pretty much knew the outcome, that we ought to move forward. But I think we passed that awhile ago.”  Jeff Flake concluded his wishful thinking with these words, “If Hillary Clinton is president-elect then we should move forward with hearings in the lame duck. That’s what I’m encouraging my colleagues to do.”

Regardless of how Flake, his political operatives and lobbyist PACs attempt to reconfigure his image prior to the 2018 election cycle, remember that he was  an enthusiastic supporter of having a lame duck session, including lame duck Democrats who were not reelected, rush through another Democrat on the current U.S. Supreme Court, dramatically altering the balance in favor of the left for years to come.

To deflect his  from this contemptible position, Flake has raised the issue of Arizona withdrawing from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. This southern adage addresses his deceit best: “That dog don‘t hunt.”

Check out Jeff Flake‘s bottom dragging Liberty Score on Conservative Review. Then acquaint yourself with Dr. Kelli Ward, the conservative alternative to the deplorable status quo.
