Jeff Flake: Reaping what he has sown

February 23, 2017

jeff_mcflake_ii

As he gears up for a reelection bid, Jeff Flake is meeting with opposition — not from Democrats — but from within the Republican Party. A first term U.S. Senator, who previously spent 6 terms in the U.S. House — after reneging on his own term limits pledge made during his first campaign for Congress in 2000.  Flake ran as a citizen legislator, vowing that if elected, he would serve three two-year terms. But the heady atmosphere of Washington, DC became irresistible for Flake. Redistricting made him immune to major challengers.

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.

Junior Senator Flake’s anti-Trump fixation closely followed his mentor John McCain, still seething over his 2008 presidential drubbing. His rage is even more inflamed by the fact that Donald Trump, who has never held political office, rode the wave of populism to the White House this past fall.

Since Trump’s ascension McCain has hammered him mercilessly, even referring to him as a “dictator.” In a move of outlandish proportions, McCain has tried to link Trump to Russia and charged Russian “hacking” of the election was an “act of war.” Russia did not intrude on our election. But the Wikileaks information damaged his scandal-plagued friend Hillary Clinton irreparably. McCain had previously referred to her as a “rock star” he could support.

What the duplicitous hypocrite McCain neglected to mention was his own request for campaign donations from Russian officials — which they turned down. The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft has the full story, including shocking, verifying links.

We recommend reading the hard charging  report, Tough Primary Road Ahead for Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake,”by John Gizzi, New Max’ chief political columnist and White House correspondent.

Jeff Flake was originally shoehorned into the senate seat through the diligent efforts of retiring Sen. Jon Kyl and John McCain.  Even with their assistance he barely squeaked into office by a mere 3 percentage points.

There is not a hair’s breadth of difference between Flake and McCain. They both relentlessly push amnesty for illegals, maintained close relationships with then-President Barack Obama  — Flake traveling with Obama to Kenya and  Cuba, and playing as a regular in the White House basketball games. Flake has colluded with liberals on gun control. McCain 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.

So you think you know Jeff Flake? Think again,” was posted July 2016. Knowledge is power.

2017: The New Year we’ve been waiting for

December 31, 2016


happy_new_year

Seeing Red AZ sends sincere best wishes for a satisfying, productive, safe and healthy New Year to our valued readers. As Americans, we’ve endured eight long years of the most disastrous presidency imaginable.

From Barack Obama’s failed dealings with Iran, funding the America-hating dictatorship with $33 Billion and making it nuclear capable, while backstabbing Israel at the U.N., to overseeing the growth of ISIS foolishly calling it a “JV Team.” He gave us the lie-based Obamacare and steadfastly refuses to say the words “radical Islamic terrorism.” His commitment is to flooding the United States with illegal aliens and unable to be vetted Middle Eastern “refugees.” His efforts to constrain our Second Amendment rights, to his obsessive use of Executive Orders bypassing Congress and disseminating phony stats on job numbers in our still struggling economy to giving credibility to the Black Lives Matter thugs by inviting them to the White House. The list goes on.

Although Obama twice swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, he intentionally failed to do so. His stated intent was to fundamentally transform the most free, prosperous and generous nation on Earth.

In three weeks we have a fresh beginning with Republican President Donald Trump and newly elected Republican House and Senate majorities — an undisputable repudiation of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, his choice to implement his third term.

As we embark upon this New Year, there is no better time to renew our acquaintance with America’s founding documents: The Declaration of Independence, our U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

They have served us well. The least we can do is stay familiar with what they contain, hold our Republican congressional majorities accountable and ensure that our children know what blessings we have been given as a nation.


Trump’s Sec. of State pick crucial: Listen to advisers on this one

December 8, 2016

The initial intrigue surrounding President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Secretary of State is drifting off into the land of frustration. Conservatives who previously had their interest piqued waiting to see who would be tapped for the key post are less than fond of shameless, name-calling Trump detractor former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Watch as Romney lopes away from questioning reporters after meeting with Trump.

The fact that the duplicitous Romney traveled to Arizona on multiple occasions to support John McCain‘s re-re-re-re-re-reelection for another 6-year senate term in his 80’s, does little to win him praise from Trump’s stalwart base. McCain withdrew his lukewarm endorsement of Trump prior to the presidential election. Jeff Flake, show-boater extraordinaire, refused to endorse the Republican nominee.

Also under consideration for Secretary of State is David Petraeus, former general and C.I.A director, who has also met with Trump. Still on probation (Court Order linked in news report) for revealing classified information, he would need authorization to move to D.C. But the real deal breaker is his teaming up with former AZ U.S. Rep. Gabby Gifford’s hypocritical husband Mark Kelly, to form a gun control group, bearing the slick sounding name, “The Veterans Coalition for Common Sense.” Let’s face facts, evidence of “common sense” flies out the window when the Second Amendment is constrained. Bearing Arms uses some tough but accurate language to describe the new gun control group for veterans.

John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations or Rudy Giuliani, a steadfast Trump loyalist and former New York City mayor are much better choices than either Mitt Romney or David Petraeus.

After liberal heads were spinning following Donald Trump’s exercise of diplomacy in his phone call with the president of Taiwan, John Bolton summed the move up perfectly, saying “the president of the United States will talk to whomever he wants if he thinks it’s in the interest of the United States, and nobody in Beijing gets to dictate who we talk to.” Trump later tweeted “Did China ask us if it was OK to devalue their currency (making it hard for our companies to compete), heavily tax our products going into their country (the U.S. doesn’t tax them) or to build a massive military complex in the middle of the South China Sea? I don’t think so!”

Godfather enthusiasts will recall Michael Corleone saying, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.” In some circumstances there might be some validity to that adage, but not when you’re the President of the United States and selecting a top adviser. Trustworthiness and loyalty should also be considerations.

Jeff Flake brings in the old guns for campaign kickoff

November 4, 2016

Jeff_Mcflake_II

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 postOops — 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.


Kelli Ward challenges Hillary-supporting RINO Jeff Flake in 2018

October 31, 2016

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 firmaccording 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 acrisis situationon 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 helpingturn 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.

As evidenced by his actions, his associations and his votes, Jeff Flake is beatable. Conservative Kelli Ward is up to the task. She needs our help to be competitive.


AZ AG Brnovich: McPayback time is here

August 5, 2016

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.
