ARIZONA’S JEFF FLAKE NEEDS TO GO…

Flake 5

After last year’s polling debacle I don’t suppose it would be a wise decision, regardless of which end of the political spectrum you may reside, to put much faith in any poll having to do with the next election.  But I must admit that it does do my heart good to hear that, it would at least appear, Republican Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, one of President Donald Trump’s more vitriolic critics, should be worried about keeping his Senate seat.  And such news comes from the recently released JMC Analytics poll which said that if the GOP primary for the 2018 election was held over the weekend challenger Kelli Ward would be ahead with 47 percent, and Flake would be behind with 21 percent. Twenty-nine percent of Republican voters said they were undecided.  Flake and Trump have attacked one another, and Trump recently tweeted, “Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!”

Now while this was in no way a direct endorsement of the former state senator, Trump allies have certainly gotten behind Dr. Ward.  A pro-Trump super PAC, ‘Great America PAC’, spent $20,000 helping Ward, according to federal election filings.  In addition, prominent Trump donor Robert Mercer gave $300,000 to Ward.  Mercer previously gave to Ward’s 2016 campaign in which she failed to beat RINO John McCain in the state’s GOP primary.  One result in Monday’s poll that bodes well for Ward is that 67 percent of likely Republican voters have an unfavorable opinion of Flake and just 22 percent like him.  Forty-three percent of those polled have a favorable opinion of Ward.  The poll also said that 66 percent of likely GOP voters think someone other than Flake should be the GOP nominee for the 2018 race.  Granted, there is still a very long way to go before the election, and no doubt a great many things can happen before it gets here.  But it is cause for hope.

JMC Analytics’ John Couvillon, shows Flake in almost irreparable shape ahead of his reelection bid in 2018.  That an incumbent U.S. Senator like Flake could be polling as low as 21 percent in his own primary, while a challenger like Ward has pulled 26 points ahead of him at 47 percent, is almost unthinkable with nearly a full year to go until the August 2018 primary.  Three percent of the electorate said they would vote for Nicholas Tutora, another candidate, and 29 percent are undecided, when asked which candidate they would vote for between Ward, Flake, and Tutora.  When asked if Flake should be re-nominated in 2018, it was a rather astounding 66 percent who said that someone else should represent the Republican Party on the Senate ticket next year while just 22 percent said Flake should be re-nominated with 13 percent saying they are undecided.  Undecided?  What, have they been living under a rock?

Fifty-six percent said they would be more likely to vote for a candidate if President Donald Trump endorsed someone in the primary, while 19 percent said they would be less likely, and 25 percent said a Trump endorsement would make no difference.  The survey also asked respondents about Trump’s criticism of Flake as “weak on borders, crime, and a non-factor in the Senate.” It noted that Trump “wants to unseat Senator Flake in the Republican primary,” and asked if that makes voters more or less likely to back Flake in 2018. In response, a solid majority—60 percent—said that Trump’s opposition to Flake’s reelection makes them less likely to support the senator, while only 21 percent said it makes them more likely to back Flake, and 19 percent said it makes no difference.  A whopping 76 percent of respondents in the JMC Analytics poll approve of President Trump’s job performance, while just 21 percent disapprove and six percent have no opinion

In his analysis of the polling data it was Mr. Couvillon who detailed just how big of a deal it actually is that Flake is currently so far underwater in this recent polling.  He said, “Next year’s Senate race already has the potential to be competitive, given that (1) Senator Flake won his first term in 2012 with a 49-46% plurality (running behind Mitt Romney’s 54%), and (2) in last year’s Presidential election, Arizona moved perceptibly towards the Democrats, as Donald Trump only carried the state 49-45%  (In 2012, Mitt Romney carried the state 54-45%).  But while the general election will be a challenge (Arizona is one of two Republican held Senate seats that Democrats could put in play next November), Senator Flake has a more immediate problem: he faces a substantial primary challenge as well.”

Mr. Couvillon then went on to say, “On the primary ballot test, Kelli Ward has a 47-21% lead over Flake (with wide leads over the incumbent among virtually every demographically significant group), despite Flake’s having nearly two decades of Congressional experience.  And Flake also faces underwater approval ratings (his unfavorability rating is 67-22%, while Ward’s approval is 43-23% positive) nearly identical to the overwhelming negative opinion Arizona Republican primary voters have of him: by a 66-22% margin, they would prefer someone else over the incumbent in the primary.”

Couvillon continued by noting how big of a deal Trump involvement may play in the race.  He said, “President Trump is still fairly popular (76-21% approval among Republican likely primary voters), and that popularity also translates to the value of a Trump endorsement in this contest: respondents by a 56-19% margin would be more likely to support President Trump’s endorsed candidate. That sentiment is especially potent when President Trump makes an incumbent (in this case, Senator Flake) the subject of his ire, such as his August 17 tweet dismissing Sen. Flake as “toxic” and a “non-factor” in the U.S. Senate. JMC tested the impact of that message, and on the basis of that tweet, respondents would by a 60-21% margin be less likely to support Flake (those more likely to support Flake already support him 76-5% on the ballot test, while those less likely to support Flake support Ward 68-5%). In summary, Senator Flake faces a substantial primary challenge from Kelli Ward, and this race could determine partisan control of the U.S. Senate.”

And it was this past Sunday evening that Dr. Ward appeared on Breitbart News on ‘SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel’ to highlight her challenge against Flake.  And it was on that show that Dr. Ward said, “There are so many reasons” that Flake is tanking in the polls.   And she went on to say, “His popularity wasn’t even very high before he started on this anti-Trump tirade that he has been on. You know he has been a Never Trumper forever. He was a Never Trumper during the primary. He said that Donald Trump was not his 14th choice to be our nominee. After Donald Trump fought his way through that field of contenders in that primary process, he still said that Donald Trump should get out and that America deserves better.”  She said, “That’s what he was featured in Hillary Clinton’s campaign commercial about.”  This guy Flake is the personification of why it’s so important that President Trump drain ‘The Swamp.’

Anyway, Dr. Ward went on to say, “And since Donald Trump’s been in the White House he has been a huge thorn in his side. He came out with his book, his ‘manifesto’ to conservatives, basically putting us down and belittling us because we just don’t know what is happening in Washington, D.C., and in the world, and he needs to tell us and he needs to pat us on the head and tell us what conservatism is all about, forgetting that the election of 2016 was a mandate here in our country for people who want what Donald Trump told us he was going to give us: the secure border, stop illegal immigration, repeal Obamacare, fix the tax code, grow the economy, make sure the military is the strongest military in the world. Those are the things that people want, and those are the things that Jeff Flake as well as other people that dwell in the swamp are standing in the way of.”

And what should be of even more concern to the good senator from Arizona is the fact that the JMC Analytics survey is hardly the only polling organization currently showing him to be in such a dire situation.  Because a HighGround Public Affairs survey conducted from Aug. 18 to Aug. 19 of 273 “high efficacy Republican and PND/Independent voters” with a margin of error of 5.93 percent also found that Ward was leading Flake by 14 points.  She was at approximately 42 percent in that survey, while Flake was down at around 28 percent.  So it would seem that things have only gotten worse for Flake since then.  And deservedly so.  This guy could very easily jumped onboard the ‘Trump Train’ and assisted in getting this country back on the road to recovery after eight years of the worst president in modern American history.  But nope, he just couldn’t bring himself to do it.  So here’s to hoping that soon it’ll be Senator Ward!

But now comes the rumor that Sheriff Joe Arpaio may be considering that he too is interested in taking on Flake for the senate seat.  Now no offense to good Sheriff Joe, but that would be nothing short of a disaster!  How about, instead, we have ‘Sheriff Joe for GOVERNOR’ of Arizona, but definitely not Senator!  I think it’s fair to say that Dr. Ward has EARNED her spot here and has a YUGE Lead!  If he was to enter the race that would nothing more than to guarantee that, short of another brain tumor diagnosis, we’d would likely be saddled with Flake another 6 Years!!  Arizona needs one, I repeat ONE, primary challenger to Flake.  The RINOs will likely throw in a Potemkin candidate to further dilute the anti-Flake vote.  All other potential challengers should simply stay away. I’m thinking that Dr. Kelli Ward has this one covered and will be the only one to get any money from me.

So here’s Plan A going from here:  In the GOP, we wipe out Flake, Strange, and Heller in the primaries.  On the Democrat side we target McCaskill in MO, Tester in MT, Donnelly in IN, Manchin in WV, Heitkamp in ND, Stabenow in MI (go Kid Rock!), Nelson in FL, Brown in OH, Frankin in MN, Kaine in VA, and Casey in PA.  Can you imagine 14 new conservative Senators in the Senate helping pass Trump’s agenda of lower taxes, lower immigration, and ‘The Wall?’  McConnell would be so beside himself that he might even go so far as to blow his brains out.  We take out ‘RINO Ryan in 2018 by donating and voting for Paul Nehlen in Wisconsin’s 1st District!  We replace McConnell in 2020 by drafting KY Rep. Thomas Massie, who has a 100% Conservative Rating.  Also, we keep donating to Dr. Ward to assist in her effort to take out Jeff Flake, the UN Globalist-Open Borders/Amnesty Snake in 2018!   Also, we need to convince Sheriff Joe to stay out of the way and allow Dr. Ward to win!  There’s no Plan B.

And here’s one final warning to all of our lying-sack-of-shit, back-stabbing RINOs.  They had better start getting behind our president, and the sooner they do that the longer their life expectancy, electorally speaking or course, will be.  Because otherwise they all just might be looking for a new job in a little over a year.  They don’t seem to understand that Trump has 60% or 70% of Republican voters and 35% or 40% of all voters who will vote for Trump no matter what he does.  So they either need to get with the program, or get out of the way of those whose mission has become the saving of what’s left of this country after eight years of Obummer.  I always get a rather sizable kick out of watching President Trump whenever he starts naming names of all our pathetic sellouts.  It’s about time we had someone willing to play real hardball with these pretend-wannabe-conservative-RINO-Republicans.  I’ve had it with the whole lot of them, Flake included!

JEFF FLAKE, ANOTHER USELESS SCUMBAG OF A RINO!!!

Flake 2

It would seem to me that the further into the Trump presidency we get, the more vocal our RINO members of ‘The Swamp’ become in their effort to assist the Democrats in trying to undermine our duly elected president.  They continue to ratchet up their incendiary rhetoric about what a danger Trump has become to represent to the party, the nation and even to the world.  There seems to be little difference between what we’re now hearing from them and what we’ve been hearing from their Democrat colleagues for some time now.  Our cast of RINOs seem to take great offense to the fact that President Trump has been calling them out on such things as their promising for seven years to “repeal and replace’ Obamacare and yet when they have the opportunity to do just that, they don’t.  And then there’s their very obvious reluctance to secure the southern border and to construct the much needed border wall.  These RINOs are no different than the Democrats.

Which, I guess, brings me to Jeff Flake, RINO from Arizona, who has made the claim, in a recently released excerpt from his upcoming book, that his party is in “denial” about President Donald Trump.  Flake argued that the Republican Party helped to create the Trump movement and now is in complete denial over the “chaos” the Trump presidency has created in his new book “Conscience of a Conservative,” which was featured in Politico.  While Flake may view himself as being a “conservative” his actions speak much louder than his words, and his actions make it very clear that he is anything but a conservative.  And it would seem that the only ones in “denial” are those like Flake who seem to be interested in nothing more than to lie to the American people, and those who tend to vote Republican are getting pretty fed up with these establishment politicians, like Flake, who tend to ignore the wishes of those whom they work for.

It’s in this pathetic little work of fiction that Flake writes, “It was we conservatives who rightly and robustly asserted our constitutional prerogatives as a co-equal branch of government when a Democrat was in the White House but who, despite solemn vows to do the same in the event of a Trump presidency, have maintained an unnerving silence as instability has ensued.”  And he goes on to write, “To carry on in the spring of 2017 as if what was happening was anything approaching normalcy required a determined suspension of critical faculties. And tremendous powers of denial.”  Flake explained that he understood why Republicans were ignoring the issues the Trump presidency created, saying he has done the same thing. He wrote, “I’ve been sympathetic to this impulse to denial, as one doesn’t ever want to believe that the government of the United States has been made dysfunctional at the highest levels, especially by the actions of one’s own party.”  What hypocritical pabulum.

Flake said, “For a conservative, that’s an awfully bitter pill to swallow.”  Let’s be honest here, this guy is nowhere near to being a conservative, he only likes to pretend he’s a conservative whenever he appears on television.  Anyway, he went on to say that one of the few ways to stop a way-ward president is through Congress before calling on his fellow congressmen to acts as the “checks and balances” against some of Trump’s demands.  He said, “As the first branch of government (Article I), the Congress was designed expressly to assert itself at just such moments. It is what we talk about when we talk about ‘checks and balances.’ Too often, we observe the unfolding drama along with the rest of the country, passively, all but saying, ‘Someone should do something!’ without seeming to realize that that someone is us.”  Does he actually hear the crap coming out of his mouth?  Flake is up for re-election in 2018 and God willing he won’t be showing back up in January 2019.

So the good people of Arizona will soon have the opportunity to be sending off to Washington two new senators, and wouldn’t it be great if, for a change, both of them turned out to be bona fide conservatives instead of pathetic RINOs!  Will they take full advantage of it?  Although I see little reason for hope since it was just last year that they thought it appropriate to once again send John McCain back to the Senate.  But it would seem that God has since intervened and will be removing McCain by another means.  But, the people there will have a chance to redeem themselves by electing a suitable ‘conservative’ replacement for Flake, one who will hopefully make good on the promises he, or she, makes.  This guy, Flake, has been living off the taxpayers since 2003, first serving the House and then gaining a promotion for himself to the Senate in 2012.  So I fear the chances may be rather slim that the people of Arizona will finally come to their senses and send this dishonest RINO packing.

Odd that we should be hearing complaints about a dysfunctional government coming from one of those most responsible for making it so.  I would love nothing better than to see President Trump throw his weight behind whomever it might be that faces Flake in a primary and then to proceed to make an example out of him.  Flake should be made the poster-boy when it comes to all of the promises made by his fellow RINOs that were then broken as soon as the election was over.  Because when you get right down to it, it sounds like he is talking more about our many RINOs in Congress not making good on all those many promises they made when they had a Democrat as president.  Flake, like every other RINO that we’re forced to contend with, is a loser.  The people of Arizona owe the country an apology for repeatedly sending McCain off to Washington and then compounding that act of stupidity by electing Flake.  Both are nothing more than modern day Benedict Arnold’s.

Flake voted against Obummer simply because it was easy and he could bolster his record as fighting Obummer’s liberal/progressive agenda.  Remember, he’s only been in the Senate for 5 years, all under Obummer.  He was an early NeverTrumper who has supported mass immigration, both legal and illegal.  Flake is the personification of all that’s wrong with Washington. “Conservatives” like Flake are the problem.  We the People created the Trump movement, not go-along-to-get-along politicians like Flake, Rubio, McCain and Graham, to name just a few, who do whatever the spineless McConnell tells them to, while surrendering any claims to being defenders of the Constitution.  Everything Obummer did could have been stopped but instead, the Republicans became silent and indifferent enablers who are now terrified that they might be rightfully identified for what they’ve allowed to happen to our Republic.  Flake and his ilk should be dissatisfied with Mr. Trump, they’re why we elected him.

I think it’s safe to say that most Republican voters have had more than enough of the NeverTrump wing of their party.  They lost, and lost overwhelmingly.  If they cannot accept the decision of the Republican voters or at least remain silent, they have no business being in our party.  They just need to be honest and become Democrats. Going after Trump is going after those who voted for him. Any Republican who believes that that is a winning strategy will find out how far it goes in the primaries when Trump voters throw them all out.  We have had it with this garbage.  If Flake wants to do the work of a Democrat, get out of the party and become one.  After all, the stock market is up, business revenue is up, wages are up, Illegal immigration is on the way down, and consumer confidence is up.  Thank you President Trump!  Meanwhile, healthcare reform appears dead, tax cuts have not yet been acted upon and border wall funding is minuscule.  Thank you congressional Republicans!

Let’s face it, the Republicans did little more than roll over and play dead for the entire eight years that we had to tolerate Obummer being in the White House.  All we got was lip service.  And now they want to stand in opposition to Trump, a guy who’s a member of their own team?  Flake and the many other RINOs were only too happy to throw their support behind Hitlery.  Even after the base pretty much repudiated the ‘Establishment’ types in the primaries because they could not be trusted.  So here’s hoping Trump supporters can defeat Flake in 2018.  His weak poll numbers are only going to get weaker.  And these RINOs need to have their collective head examined if they think they can bring our President down and then pick up all the pieces he pulled together for his victory.  And if they do manage to bring down our President the Republican Party is through.  They will never again win another presidency and become the permanent minority party.  Which may be what they’re really after.

RINOs like Flake represent a very clear and present danger to this country.  All they’re doing, and have been doing since election night, is to throw a tantrum because it turns out that we can have immigration enforcement without comprehensive amnesty.  They kept dangling enforcement so they could double the number of illegal immigrants per year to 2 million and to legalize those already here.  Sorry, we got enforcement without letting you flood the country with cheap labor and letting you destroy the language and culture.  Yet they keep babbling on about “our broken immigration system” blah, blah, “comprehensive immigration reform,” blah, blah, “path to citizenship,” blah, blah, “illegals are better than American citizens,” blah, blah, and “xenophobia, nativism, and racism.”  There are a lot of Senators who don’t realize how much trouble they may be in.  And all the donor money in the world won’t make up for a lack of votes.  Just ask Hitlery if it worked for her.

Flake has managed to progress from being just your average run-of-the-mill backbencher to being one of the more prominent back biters in Congress.  Flake has literally never done anything throughout his entire political career.  He opposes everything conservatives want.  He’s pro-choice, pro-open borders, pro-higher taxes, and against school vouchers.  I mean who is this guy to call for Congress to block the President from his own party?  Flake and his RINO cohorts are telling America to F- off.  So the time has come to remove as many of them from office as we can and replace them with those who love their country.  So because the Republicans can get nothing done in the Senate, it’s somehow the fault of the President?  This is nonsense and he knows it.  With the election of President Trump the Republicans were handed an opportunity to do the right thing and yet they still can’t get it together.  It’s a shame and not what the American people voted for.

America was built with hard work, sweat, and a lot of blood. The two major parties are embarrassing our country.  The Democrats by pushing their social agenda issues, and the Republicans constantly afraid of offending the Far Left.  The Republican old school types have grown accustomed to kneeling in front of their Democrat betters and receiving their abuse and liking it.  Meanwhile, Trump has fought back and I look forward to watching Trump endorse those candidates who choose to run against incumbent RINOs like Flake.  “Make America Great Again” is happening and ‘The Establishment’, both right and left, just can’t handle it.  None of them thought that President Trump had a snowball’s chance in Hell of beating Hitlery, and nine months later they are still unable to accept it.  So now we see the RINOs teaming up with the Democrats in what has become a less than covert effort to topple a duly elected president.  And we the people must make it known that this is simply unacceptable.
