Jeff Flake: A phony, a fraud*

January 17, 2018

Obviously SRAZ is not going to cover showboating Jeff Flake’s latest tirade against President Donald Trump. The lame duck, Obama buddy would rather see a Democrat in the White House than the Republican president who stunned people like Flake and Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) when he victoriously swept the nation as the returns came in Nov. 8, 2016. Conservatives weren’t at all surprised.

One of the best assessments of Jeff the Flake is the opinion piece by L. Brent Bozell III, titled,Sen. Jeff Flake’s big audition for the Trump-despising media.” Your time will be better spent reading this on-target appraisal of the marginal Flake than watching his dishonest, showboating histrionics in the senate chamber.

Here’s Jeff Flake taking to the senate floor to honor the president, but not the duly elected one of the United States. He’s using the senate to honor Thomas S. Monson, who headed the LDS Church until his recent passing.

MLK Day icon Calvin Goode isn’t so iconic

January 16, 2018

Double standard exists: Calvin Goode made a mockery of MLK’s words when attempting to defeat a “white” woman based solely on her race

Reporting on Martin Luther King Day observances, the Arizona Republic gave front page coverage to notable black community activists and the winner of the Calvin C. Goode Lifetime Achievement Award.

What is omitted in the coverage is Goode’s own not so subtle bigotry. As we noted back in 2013, Goode threw the inspirationalI have a Dream” sentiments of Martin Luther King to the wind as he vigorously opposed a fellow Democrat woman running for a city council seat based solely on….her race. Take a couple of minutes to read Calvin Goode: Former councilman proposes racial gerrymandering, which includes his confounding letter to the newspaper’s editor explaining why “white” Kate Gallego should not be elected to the District 8 Council seat.

 Goode, who served on the Phoenix City Council for over two decades, elected by people of all races, shamefully opposed Kate Gallego not on the content of her character, but on the color of her skin — turning Martin Luther King‘s words on their ear. Regardless of Goode’s embarrassing protestations against her, she was elected. As an update, we note that in the intervening years her marriage to Ruben Gallego abruptly ended before the birth of their child.  Ruben Gallego is now the far-left, Trump-bashing congressman representing AZ CD 7.

This post, Council candidate Kate Gallego subject of incendiary race baiting, relates the vicious verbal abuse aimed her way by disreputable anti-white bigot Jarrett Maupin, II, a one-time Al Sharpton protégé. It exposes the appalling silence of the duplicitous Arizona Republic when she was called “white sham candidate in brown face,” “an interloping political puppet,” (albeit with a degree from Harvard and an MBA from the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania) and “a white political patsy.”  He also referred to her as “a power-hungry white…who not is openly campaigning as white. Liberal Kate Gallego apparently has learned nothing from the racial political grinder she was put through. She is now a declared candidate for Mayor of Phoenix, and an open apologist for illegals, who she says, “benefit our city” by making it more “diverse.”

As we stated in 2013, “Seeing Red AZ is a politically conservative site, not in the business of giving aid and comfort to leftist Dems such as Kate Gallego.  However, the vicious assaults on this woman are reprehensible, and standing by in silence would be condoning this despicable behavior. We would be remiss not acknowledging that fact, regardless of race or party affiliation.”

Prejudice can flow in both directions and is equally abhorrent regardless of its origins. Oddly, the newspaper refuses to acknowledge this truth. And deserving recipients are gifted with a Lifetime Achievement Award named in honor of bigoted Calvin Goode. 


Fake McFlake tries to paint Pres. Trump as Stalin

January 15, 2018

Lame duck Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake is reminiscent of a spoiled brat, demanding attention and wiling to do and say anything to be noticed.

Appearing Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” he was back to throwing puerile tantrums, the more outrageous, the better — or so he thinks. During this interview with host George Stephanopoulos, Flake compared President Trump to murderous Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. This contemptible misinterpretation of history is Flake’s response to Trump fittingly calling out deceptive news outlets as dishonest and purveyors of “fake news.”

Taking his spew to left-wing outlets where he is sure to be given the attention he craves, Flake couldn’t have picked a more responsive program than one helmed by Bill Clinton’s former senior adviser and communications director. Ethically challenged Stephanopoulos neglected to disclose a $75,000 donation to Bill and Hill’s “pay to play” Clinton Foundation, even as he reported on both the former president and his Democrat presidential candidate wife, Hillary. 

Flake, who is “retiring” due to his acknowledged inability to win reelection, shows himself to be an even bigger fool than his reputation implies.

“When you reflexively refer to the press as the enemy of the people or fake news, that has real damage. It has real damage to our standing in the world,” Flake said. “And I noted how bad it is for a president to take what was popularized by Joseph Stalin, the enemy of the people, to refer to the press.”

The preposterous comparison exemplifies Jeff Fake’s historical illiteracy. During a single month in the midst of World War II, ruthless tyrant Stalin, fearing some of his military officers might challenge his absolute authority, ordered the execution of 30,000 Russian military men, or half of his own army and navy staff. An estimated 5 million Russian peasants died of famine after being forced off their land.

Flake, who loudly proclaimed his refusal to vote for the Republican nominee who was victorious over 16 other GOP primary challengers, followed his mentor Arizona’s senior senator  (ASS) John McCain, and ultimately supported scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton.

Flake’s latest anti-Republican gambit in denouncing President Trump is making the Stalin comparison for his “unrelenting daily assault on the constitutionally-protected free press.” The Washington Post’s Ed O’Keefe has excerpts of Flake’s rant which he has already released to some anti-Trump outlets, and is expected to deliver on Wednesday. Let‘s hope his theatrics  are delivered to a senate chamber devoid of Republicans.

Fake Jeff Flake prefers the Communist dictators Raul and Fidel Castro to our duly elected American President Donald Trump. Flake even traveled to repressive Cuba with his buddy Barack Obama to reestablish ties with the corrupt regime.


The notorious McDossier

January 11, 2018

Complicit McCain’s integral role in leaking bogus information confirmed

It’s no secret that Arizona’s miserable excuses for Republican senators despise Donald Trump.  After hurling numerous insults his way, both announced after Donald Trump was victorious over 16 other intra-party primary candidates that neither they nor their families would vote for the GOP nominee — effectively putting them in deceitful Hillary Clinton’s camp. 

It’s gotten no better since Trump’s election. Jeff Flake wrote a 104-page pamphlet masquerading as a book, castigating Trump. His resulting poll numbers were so hopeless, he opted out of campaigning for another term, which he would assuredly have lost. McCain, ill with brain cancer, has expended his waning energy on dramatically voting against Trump’s key measure of repealing and replacing Obamacare. Even as the door is closing on him, his bitter vengeance remains uncontrolled.

Fast forward to the newest revelations.

Whenever there’s an unsavory connection, deep in the muck, there’s most often a McCain link to be found.  The latest is a detailed, fact-filled report carried by Breitbart News, titled, “Fusion GPS Admits They Used John McCain to Pass Anti-Trump Dossier to Obama-Era Intel Agencies.” It details the actions of an arrogant and petty man consumed with jealous rage that political outsider Donald Trump attained what will forever elude him — the presidency of the United States.

McCain’s longstanding friendship with Hillary Clinton provided the impetus to personally carry the discredited, alleged Russian dossier to then-FBI Director James Comey. That’s the same James Comey, heading what we now know was an appallingly partisan office, who unilaterally decided that Clinton was merely” careless” and not criminally culpable following his investigation into her use of a personal email server exposing classified information while she was Secretary of State. So certain was Comey of her innocence that he drafted a statement about the conclusion of the Hillary Clinton email investigation months before interviewing Clinton.

In Comey, facilitator McCain found the right person to deliver the phony anti-Trump dossier to.

McCain previously denied knowledge of the fact that the dossier was funded by pal Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, which even the leftwing Washington Post conceded in Oct. 2017.


Is Romney the new McCain?

January 7, 2018

We thought Halloween was over until reading the frightful column by Dave Catanese in US News & World Report. Still, we urge you to read it in its entirety. Knowledge is power.

Arizonans are keenly aware McCain’s time in the senate is coming to an end. And with his doppleganger Flake opting not to run due to abysmal polling numbers, ‘hope springing eternal’ suddenly becomes more than a hackneyed phrase.

Then we read this:

“As he’s expressed his desire to join the U.S. Senate, Mitt Romney has privately revealed that a driving purpose of his service would be to emulate a former rival and fellow foiled Republican presidential nominee: Sen. John McCain.

“There’s got to be somebody who can stand up to the president,” Romney told members of the Utah congressional delegation in recent weeks, according to a person with knowledge of his comments. “Who’s going to stand up to Trump?”

What a shame that creating havoc for the duly elected President of the United States — especially one of your own party, who won in a stunning upset — is the reason any person of integrity would run for the U.S. Senate.

In Romney’s case, the key word is “integrity.”  It’s doubtful the McCain and Flake admirer possess any. He’s the delusional insult hurler who called Republican candidate Donald Trump a “phony and a fraud” and then came on bended knee imploring President Trump for the secretary of state appointment.

Is this what McCain admirer Romney aspires to emulate?


AZ GOP hosts McFlakey Swan Song Supper

January 5, 2018

 

After spending the better part of the past two years beating up on Donald Trump — the candidate and the President — Jeff the Flake looked at his poling numbers and decided the prudent thing to do was retire rather than face certain defeat.

The conservative base that put Trump over the top in Arizona is not in any mood to bury the hatchet and get on with the business of intraparty politics. They rightfully felt betrayed by the man who originally claimed conservative credentials but showed himself to be nothing more than a petty egotist who cozied up to Barack Obama, doing his bidding — even working, though ultimately failing, to get Obama’s Democrat choice for the U.S. Supreme Court confirmed before Obama left office — and is fervently committed to amnesty for illegal aliens.

Flake quickly became yesterday’s news, as attentions turned to conservative  senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward, who has repeatedly trounced Flake in statewide surveys.

Although chastised for his waywardness by RNC Chairwomen Ronna Romney McDaniel, the Arizona Republican Party hierarchy, including Chairman Jonathan Lines and his predecessor Robert Graham, remained mum in the face of Flake’s blatant defections.

The AZ GOP’s continues to give cover to Jeff the Flake. The Chairman’s Dinner is going all out this year, staging the event at the Camby Hotel, formerly the Ritz Carlton.  It’s a good bet it’ll be a Flake and McCain slobber fest. It’s doubtful many conservatives are inclined to shell out money for an event honoring their antagonists. McCain, who has spent his entire career colluding with Democrats, previously worked with out-of-state Obama donors to purge conservative elected precinct committeemen from the AZ Republican Party. It was payback for the embarrassing censure he was handed by state committeemen at the Jan. 25, 2014 mandatory Statutory meeting.


Probe closing in on McCain: Is it too late?

December 28, 2017

Brain cancer could keep him from being subpoenaed

We don’t claim any expertise in discerning who’s a spy — a Russian, a Brit  or a partisan working at the FBI.

But there’s no denying the intersecting connections. When, as contemptible as it was, former DNC chair Donna Brazile was revealed to be feeding Hillary questions prior to a nationally televised debate, the mainstream media gave her criminal enabling limp coverage. As the 2016 “sure thing” Clinton campaign stumbled and hacked along, her buddy John McCain, and his doppelganger Jeff Flake disclosed neither they nor their families would vote for Donald Trump. The animus aimed at Trump by his envious adversaries was palpable. Uncharacteristically chivalrous, McCain called practiced liar and scandal-plagued Hillary arock starhe could support. It was far better treatment than the profane tirade he publicly lobbed at his wife, Cindy,

In Donald Trump’s lead-up to his stunning primary victory over 16 other GOP contenders, it was great sport (video) to dismiss him as a momentary anomaly, an annoying flea on an elephant’s backside. Trump was actually akin to a fire breathing dragon, making bold commitments Americans were not used to hearing, and vowing to follow through on them when elected.

The primary results proved to be too much for the liberals to digest. Amid Hillary’s choking, gagging and falling, a national populist movement was gaining steam and rallying behind the premise of “Make America Great Again!” It was clear Hillary’s political days were over.

 Something had to be done to impede Trump’s energetic trajectory.

Byron York, writing for the Washington Examiner, fills in the missing puzzle parts, following the route of what has become known as the “Trump dossier.” It should more accurately be known as the “McCain dossier,” since the now discredited file was hand carried to former FBI director by none other than point-man John McCain to whom it was delivered, in an obvious effort to diminish Trump, and bolster Hillary.

House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued a subpoena to David Kramer, a former State Department official who, in late November 2016, traveled to London to receive a briefing and a copy of the dossier from its author, former British spy Christopher Steele. Kramer then returned to the U.S. to give the document to Sen. John McCain.

David Kramer is a senior fellow at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at ASU.

From there, it was just a few heel clicks to ensure Hillary’s victory. Fortunately, it didn’t work out that way. Still, the dirty business McCain was up to his comb-over in is finally spotlighted. The Arizona Republic wanting no part of this sordid business continues to promote McCain’s “legacy.”

McCain and Hillary are more than casual friends bonded in their abject abhorrence of all things Trump. They are co-conspirators on a wide range of issues. They each have “foundations” bearing their names that have been accused of sanitizing donations from unsavory sources, and both rely heavily on Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros, a man who disdains national borders and is trying to remake the American justice system and reconfigure the global economy. Here in Maricopa County, Soros funded Democrat Paul Penzone’s takeover of the Sheriff’s Department and attempted to do the same with the County Attorney’s Office.
