The Flake refuses to support GOP presidential nominee, but wants our vote
The dino duo of John McCain and Jon Kyl is ready to reprise the rusty act that barely squeaked Jeff Flake across the finish line during his maiden senate race. With all of the heavy lifting they did for him, Flake managed a slim 3-point margin of victory in 2012. Former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona, a Democrat George W. Bush appointee who both McCain and Kyl previously supported (video), turned out to be a more formidable foe than expected and Flake never came close to fulfilling the 11-to-16 point projected lead.
The pro-amnesty Arizona Republic newspaper was also giving him grief when he emulated his mentors John McCain and Jon Kyl (brief campaign videos under links) in an effort to win votes, and went hard-line against the illegal invasion. Flake was scornfully blasted as a mere “politician, no longer a statesman” in an editorial. His politically motivated and momentary change of heart was labeled “jarring.” The editoralist need not have worried. Immediately after warming the seat of his plush chair on the banks of the Potomac, Flake joined McCain on an amnesty scheme.
For a memory refresher, read the March 2011 post “Oops — Jeff Flake’s crown slips as he sinks to mere McPolitician.” And remember Gun Owners of America accuses Flake of stabbing gun owners in the back. In June, we posted Jeff Flake colludes with liberals on gun control.
But this Saturday at an early morning $30 breakfast — your used “souvenir” hot beverage mug is available for an additional $10 — at a hotel that touts itself as a “3.2-mile drive from the Phoenix Zoo,” the amnesty trio will be glad-handing and making promises. McCain, now in his 80s, will be 4 days away from his sixth six-year senate race results. Yet, he magnanimously finds time to help his doppelganger Jeff Flake. Kyl even took valuable time away from his lucrative duties as a top DC lobbyist at a multinational firm in an effort to ensure smooth sailing for Flake.
Count on their efforts falling on deaf ears. As Conservative Republicans are working tirelessly to get Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump elected, Jeff the Flake has steadfastly and publicly refused to endorse or even vote for Trump. McCain has withdrawn his lukewarm support.
Constitutional Conservative Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and two-term state senator has recently announced her challenge to freshman senator Jeff Flake. She’s battle-tested, having come off a senate race against deceitful, Soros-backed John McCain. We were proud to support Kelli Ward in that race, and are committed to her success in the upcoming senate race. The stakes are too high to equivocate. Jeff Flake is beatable.
Republicrat egocentric contrarian needs to go
In an email titled, “Help me drain the swamp!,” Kelli Ward announces her intent to challenge first term Sen. Jeff Flake in 2018. Flake has determinedly worked to undermine Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump while essentially giving his full-throated support to corrupt, scandal plagued liberal Hillary Clinton.
In one of her final essays, conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly exposed Jeff Flake as a “disreputable globalist.” She had previously written “Trump battles globalist Republicans,” which we covered in Schlafly: Trump treated with hostility; Flake leads the pack.
Except for a stint leading the Libertarian, “limited government” Goldwater Institute, a fiscal but not social conservative group, Flake has spent his career at the public trough, even breaking his own pledge to term limit himself to stay in the heady atmosphere of Washington, DC. Searching all of the laissez-faire Goldwater categories, even “regulations,” we were unable to find a word either pro or con on Prop. 205 the disastrous effort to legalize recreational marijuana on the Nov. 8, General Election ballot. Silence often speaks louder than words.
In the early 1990s Flake was a registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium, a company operating a mine in the South African country of Namibia that is among the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel —- partially owned by Iran. He earned approximately $7,000 monthly opening doors in the our nation’s capital and promoting the firm, according to records obtained by National Journal, which writes, “Flake’s little-known time in the influence industry stands in contrast to his carefully cultivated image as a Washington outsider.” As a lobbyist he gained D.C. access for the nefarious uranium dealers.
Flake is oozy with Obama, as a regular traveling companion and White House basketball teammate. Senate Conservatives Fund noted that Flake was one of only two Republican senators who disappointingly didn’t vote on whether to cut off debate giving the Democrats the power to fund Obamacare. The conservative vote was “Nay.” His leftist votes on matters of extreme impotence can be seen here. Conservative Review rates Jeff Flake an “F” along with is mentor John McCain. Gun Owners of America asks, “How Many Times Will Jeff Flake Stab Gun Owners in the Back? — One time? Or four?” Flake rates a zero from the League of Conservative Voters.
Despite the Arizona Republic’s super-sized efforts at whitewashing and repackaging him, Flake is beatable. Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and two-term conservative state senator has been through the McCain wood chipper— he actually accused her of being soft on ISIS terrorists! — and is ready to take on the marginal Flake.
Though Flake gives lip service criticizing government waste and advocates reducing federal spending, he is a committed proponent of the illegal invasion of the United States. The two issues are incompatible with one another, with costly benefits and numerous other services illegals access soaring astronomically, as they displace American workers in a still depressed economy. Don’t look for Jeff Flake to address what Immigration and Customs Enforcement refers to as a “crisis situation” on our porous border as illegal aliens boldly invade the U.S., claiming “refugee” status.
In fact, Flake and McCain were the architects of the Gang of Eight amnesty bill on which they colluded with the most liberal Senate Democrats, including Charles Schumer and Richard Durbin, and a couple of other Republicrats.
When Flake was in the House of Representatives, radical leftist Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois) Flake’s close associate and co-sponsor of amnesty legislation, wrote an article, “The Numbers Are On Our Side,” for Progress Illinois, in which he specifically thanked Jeff Flake for helping “turn more red states blue.”
In 2012, flagrant phony Flake was given more than a lift by McCain and retiring Sen. Jon Kyl. Even so, he barely made the cut against former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona.
John McCain at age 80 is running — scared — for a sixth 6-year year U.S. Senate term, and is calling in his legal McChips. Just a couple of days ago we posted Dutiful Bill Montgomery plays errand boy for John McCain, reporting on the deceptive robo call made by the Maricopa County Attorney on behalf of McCain. The premise was McCain’s supposedly unwavering support of Second Amendment rights. Seeing Red AZ exposed the fallacy of the claim with a link to this 48 – 50 Senate Roll Call vote in which he voted with the unified Democrats and three other GOP defectors in an effort to curtail this fundamental Constitutional freedom. Our nation‘s founders considered this right so important it was placed second only to freedom of speech and assembly guaranteed in the First Amendment.
Now comes another dose of hoodwinking from Arizona’s Attorney General Mark Brnovich. He obviously knows better, but is now being reminded that he was the establishment recruit and as many of us heard our exasperated parents say, “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.” They were speaking out of frustration. McCain surrogates get the message out on his behalf, minus the tongue-in-cheek bravado.
Brnovich’s robo calls are remarkably similar to Montgomery’s in that they both peddle McCain’s steadfast adherence to “protecting Second Amendment rights.” Believe that at your own peril. Notice that this 2013 letter sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, clearly states the senate signers were putting Reid on notice they would oppose “any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms, or their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance.” Whose name is missing? None other than John McCain. Bill Montgomery and Mark Brnovich might not be paying attention, but you should.
Gun Owners of America has endorsed McCain challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, acknowledging “McCain has been a thorn in the side of Second Amendment supporters for years.” GOA notes that only 35% of AZ GOP voters approve of the job McCain is doing compared to 50% who disapprove. The organization scores him a D – rating. McCain, who doesn’t own a firearm himself, has as his pet project closing what he mysteriously refers to as “gun show loop holes.”
McCain’s vile temper and vindictive nature are renown. If he or his surrogates gave a hand up to a fledgling politico, steadfast allegiance remains expected. Consort with McCain at your own risk. He will own a piece of your hide and call it in whenever it suits him. If you received the auto dialer messages, you heard this truth in action. He and the McCain supporting PACs are not above lying if it benefits him, even alleging that while in the state senate Kelli Ward voted to fund ISIS militants. Votes involving national security take place in Washington D.C., not on Washington Street at the state legislature. This blatant deceit indicates not only the magnitude of his lies, but also the fact that he thinks Arizona voters are foolish enough to buy them.
Early ballots are in the mail. Vote Dr. Kelli Ward for Arizona’s U.S. Senator. McCain needs a rest and we need a vibrant, conservative former state senator and knowledgeable family practice physician to work on revamping the Obamacare monstrosity.
Maricopa County Attorney still “playing well” with AZ Senators
Many of us arrived home from our daily grind Tuesday to find one of those annoying robo calls on the answering machine. This one was of particular interest since it was from the impatient and ambitious Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. And who did he find time in his busy day to pimp for? None other than the edgy oldster John McCain. McCain, at age 80, is running, albeit scared, for yet another 6-year U.S. Senate term, telling Arizonans he still has work to do.
Among McCain’s unfinished business is continuing to push for amnesty for those illegally invading the USA and further constricting our Second Amendment rights. On Dec. 3, 2015, John McCain was one of only four U.S. Senate Republican defectors who voted with the unified Democrats to limit Second Amendment rights. The Roll Call vote was 48 – 50. (Deceptively worded “Statement of Purpose” accompanies vote.)
Don’t get sidetracked by the flowery description of the bill as a protective or “healthcare freedom” measure or the language that makes it sound as though it’s a budget bill. It was a Democrat-led expansion of background checks on law-abiding purchasers of firearms. GOP Sen. Mark Kirk, who joined the renegades faces a tough reelection campaign in the blue state of Illinois and is willing to wave the white flag of surrender on constitutional rights. McCain’s motivation is his arrogant, long-held view that he knows better what’s best for the rest of us. His pet project is closing what he calls “gun show loopholes”
Yet in his robo call, County Attorney Montgomery waxes eloquent on McCain’s unwavering support for “protecting our Second Amendment rights.“
Don’t believe it for a second. Bill Montgomery has other motivations that have more to do with his own political aspirations than John McCain’s attempt to hoodwink us during his last hurrah campaign.
Gun Owners of America has endorsed Dr. Kelli Ward, saying, “McCain has been a thorn in the side of Second Amendment supporters for years.” GOA notes that only 35% of AZ GOP voters approve of the job McCain is doing compared to 50% who disapprove. The organization gives him a D – rating.
Early balloting in the Primary Election begins today, Aug. 3. Election Day is Aug. 30. McCain has been in office since he was first elected in 1982. It’s time for a change. For conservative representation, send Dr. Kelli Ward to D.C. Here’s her view on the Second Amendment which she calls “one of our most treasured liberties, and it must be protected.” No double talk on “gun show loopholes” or purposely convoluted babble. Check out her entire Issues page.
Arizonans know we deserve better than what we’ve been getting, regardless of what we hear from a McCrony on a robo call.
The National Rifle Association has released it’s first pro-Trump ad of the 2016 election cycle. The powerful ad features Mark “Oz” Geist, a Marine Corps veteran who provided security services in Benghazi, Libya.
“A lot of people say they’re not going to vote this November because their candidate didn’t win,” Geist begins as he strolls through a military cemetery. “Well, I know some other people who won’t be voting this year either. Hillary as President? No thanks.
I served in Benghazi. My friends didn’t make it. They did their part. Do yours.”
In this 2015 interview with Ammoland, Donald Trump made his views clear as he talked politics and guns, beginning with this statement:
“I am a Life Member of the NRA and am proud of their service in protecting our right to keep and bear arms. The NRA’s efforts to stop dangerous, gun-banning legislation and regulation is invaluable. The media focus on those efforts overshadows the great work the NRA does on behalf of safety and conservation.”
It’s Jeff Flake — back to his “bi-partisan” antics. Here he is, hard at work with Democrats and Republicrats to rein in our Second Amendment rights. Flake was also integral to pushing amnesty for illegal invaders as a fixture of the Gang of Eight —- along with John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and a load of other unsavory left wing types. As a member of the U.S. House, Flake labored tirelessly alongside Illinois Democrat Luis Gutierrez promoting amnesty to “turn more red states blue.”
The aptly named and ambitious Flake — with strong Libertarian leanings — has run as a Republican because he knew that provided the direct route to the rarified Club of 100 — the U.S. Senate. As a close Obama associate who has traveled with him to Kenya and Cuba and is a regular basketball playing chum, Flake has honed progressively close Democrat ties. Posing this question to Jeff Flake was met with stony silence.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest intimated Tuesday that Republicans are cowards for opposing Monday’s gun control proposals. Jeff Flake, who the Arizona Republic newspaper denounced as a “coward” for his campaign-related vote opposing background checks in 2013, as it lavished praise on John McCain, who it claims, “did not fail” as “one of just four Republicans who dared follow their conscience on this bill.” McCain was complimented for taking the path “of the maverick once more.”
Now it’s Jeff the Flake who has done a stunning about-face as he shreds Second Amendment protections with proposals that would not have prevented the Orlando massacre perpetrated by an ISIS inspired terrorist who praised Allah in his call to police.
