The Truth About Jeff “Holier Than Thou” Flake

418

When Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake talks about conservative principles, he sounds exactly like the kind of Republican we need more of in government. That’s why, for a long time, he was one of the standard-bearers cited by institutions like the Heritage Foundation – a man with a fiercely conservative voting record against which any senator or congressman could be compared. His career has been long and distinguished, and hell, he’s probably a nice guy to boot.

And then Trump happened.

Now, we’re not going to stoop to calling Flake a “swamp monster” who’s only out for the donor class or engage in the rest of the name-calling that would be so easy to succumb to at a time like this, because there’s really no need. Jeff Flake is a problem, but he’s not THE problem. THE problem is now, and will always be, the Democratic Party, and we will still believe that no matter how many Republicans from Arizona turn on the president. We have no respect for conservatives still pushing the NeverTrump narrative, and we think Flake’s sanctimonious speech in front of the Senate was a real low point in the history of our government, but it is what it is.

We do, however, have a problem with some of these pundits making Flake’s big stand against Trump out to be some grand act of courage. It wasn’t. Not really.

In an interview with the Arizona Republic, Flake said, “Here’s the bottom line: The path that I would have to travel to get the Republican nomination is a path I’m not willing to take, and that I can’t in good conscience take. It would require me to believe in positions I don’t hold on such issues as trade and immigration and it would require me to condone behavior that I cannot condone. This spell will pass, but not by next year.”

He phrases it in the same “holier-than-thou” fashion that he phrased his Senate speech and his Washington Post op-ed, but the truth is between the lines: He can’t win. He knows it and everyone else knows it. The state of conservative politics has passed him by, and he’s set to lose to insurgent candidate Kelli Ward. He doesn’t care about his big principles enough to sacrifice his ego on the altar of an embarrassing election loss, now does he? So he’s taking the coward’s way out, and he found a way to do it so he looks like a hero instead.

It would have been more honest if he’d simply come and said, “Hey, the Trump Train ran me over, so I’m tucking my tail between my legs and going home.” Because, really, that’s what happened.

    Maybe, Mr. Flake it is time to switch parties. Or you could just change your first name to Snow and take your pick of Liberal Indoctrination Centers of Higher Learning and preach. With a name like Snow Flake I am sure in that environment you could write your own ticket!

        Isn’t it normally too warm for Snow Flakes in Arizona?

          Refrigeration? He does most of his working and living in D.C., a cold heartless place if ever there was one.

            Where all the money grubbing political hores hang out !!!

          2. Richard Start says

            Yes but should we really look down on them for being money grubbing or just hores? I could use some cash but have no place to grub with hores and let it hang out? That is so wrong I’ll just stay broke and keep my pride.
            The smart ass in me had to say something to you today, hope you are doing well.

            I’m sorry, I forgot. That’s the real home of cold, heartless buttholes with no vision for our country or its citizens. We should never have given them air conditioning back in the 1950’s-we’d probably all be better off!

          9. Angee says

            What work? His hair highlights at the beauty salon? Or working with ” The Gang of 8″ bringing more illegals to work in the Mills up in Northern AZ..where his family owns most businesses. They love the cheap labor. That’s probably the only reason they sent him to D.C.

          10. SNUFFER says

    5. Francis VanDevender says

      I think he has already switched parties..Too many of these turncoats to get the job done.Be good to have guys like him gone….

      1. RC says

        I thoroughly agree. It will be worth the six figure pension he gets just too be rid of him. Hopefully he’ll at least try to show a little class and keep his mouth shut. But I guess it’s nice to dream about things like that.

        1. Angee says

          Let’s hope President Trump take a look at the pensions and term limits also. @ should be the max with no pension. Just the privilege of getting the job, which if they’re good at it, they might get better offers outside ‘OUR Government’

          1. Carl says

            Angee: You are so right. I’m hoping Trump pushes for an amendment to the Constitution that would make Congress be required to be subject to the same laws as ordinary citizens. It’s DISGRACEFUL that Congress makes terrible laws , like Obamacare, and then exempts themselves from them. If Trump got behind this movement it would happen.

          2. mike Thor says

            TERM LIMITS on all political officials. ALL LAWS COVER ALL AMERICANS none are exempted. Congress shall be to obey EVERY LAW THAT THEY PASS. EXEMPTING THEMSELVES IS THE HEIGHT OF HYPOCRISY: we are either a nation of common laws or we are NOT, the days of for thee but not we are over. NO FURTHER SPECIAL PRIVILEGES FOR LAWMAKERS!!!

          3. RC says

            We no doubt all hope for term limits. And when a politician is voted out of office I always thought it was the same as being fired. Also, when someone like Flakey Flake decides to retire after one term that should mean he quit his job before being vested for retirement and should collect absolutely nothing. But I think we all know he’s a member of the Beltway Boys and Girls Club and he’ll get all he can cheat us out of in addition to all he can steal.

          4. ARTPSYCH says

            Jeff Flake was the leftist poster child on the news media because he denounced Trump and won’t work with him- the real story is he can’t get enough support from constituents back home to re-elect his lazy ass and no one wants a guy in there who’s a quitter – so he packed up his shit and his broken marbles and wants to go home! GOOD!

          5. RC says

            As I think I said before, I wouldn’t vote for that RINO to shovel up the road apples after the horses pass in a parade. He is NO DAMN GOOD! A habitual liar and a turncoat. It’s OK to disagree with the president from time to time but Flake, and also McCain, have taken it to a whole new level. They should both go home and stay there now.

          6. ARTPSYCH says

            Believe me, there are a lot of liberal conservatives around Trump! He’s purging them one by one..

          7. SandyT says

            You forget that he was in the US House of Representatives for 12 years before being elected to the Senate in 2013, so at the time he “resigns” he will have 18 years service in the federal government. They don’t however, receive their full salaries as a pension, it’s based on the number of years served and a percentage of his various salaries and they don’t collect until retirement age. Flake will get a pension, but it won’t be immediate, nor will it be his full pay that he is receiving now. (He doesn’t deserve it, anyway!)

          8. RC says

            I’d forgotten about his time in the lower house. That doesn’t change one thing in my opinion. He no doubt gets a substantial pension from his terms as a representative. But since he’s quitting I feel he should get nothing from the Senate. Of course it won’t turn out that way because again, he belongs to the Beltway Boys and Girls Club. I’m just glad that lying traitor will be gone. But no telling how much damage he can do before leaving.

          9. SandyT says

            I don’t like Flake, either, but he is not “quitting”, he is still going to be a Senator until January 2019. He’s just not going to run for reelection, because he knows he is persona non grata now and would have a hard time beating Kelli Ward. He has hinted that he might run for the R nomination against Trump (and other never-Trumper’s) but if he can’t even beat Ward, how in the world does he think he could beat Pres. Trump? Maybe he figures that Trump won’t run for reelection, but even then, Flake is a flake and would never win the nomination. It’s probably just all bravado to soothe his own ego. I surely would never vote for him. Gov. Kasich has also recently said that he might oppose Trump for the 2020 nomination. Idiots! If Trump wants another term, I feel sure he will win handily.

          10. RC says

            I thoroughly agree with what you wrote about Flake. He can, and probably will, do a lot of damage before he fades into oblivion. And as for what you wrote about Kasich, just like Flakey Flake, he’s an unmitigated mouthy ass who would do well to just stay in Ohio, be the ‘great’ governor he claims to be. It wouldn’t hurt if both Kasich and Flake would learn to keep their mouths shut, too.

          11. Patricia says

            RC—you are so..o…o… right!!!! We are just like any other 3rd world country!!!!! Our politicians are no better than those of the banana republics!!!!!!

          12. DAlnB41 says

            Amen to that;I wold hate to see SOME of the long term elected representatives gone but the past years has shown most of the elected representatives putting in far less time on the job than the vast majority of American workers but drawing huge wages, benefits and retirements while doing noting significant to earn any of it.
            One of the BEST THINGS that could happen to this country is strengthening the RECALL powers so we do not have to keep “dead beat” politicians remain in office!

          13. mike Thor says

            TERM LIMITS & RECALL PETITIONS EXCEEDING 51% of THE POPULAR VOTE. Retire them w/o benefits. They’d have only the standard Federal Pension portions awarded for any other federal worker for time served. We MUST take back our government and return it to be OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE USA.

          14. Patricia says

            I agree!!!!!!!!! Amen…..amen……amen……!!!!! They should live like the rest of us!!!!!

          15. RC says

            Dream on Patricia. Those people, most if not all of them don’t know what a day’s work is. Oh, I hears a few tell how hard they worked in their dad’s beer joint sweeping floors while going to college. Speaking for myself, there isn’t a minute during the day or night that I didn’t go to or come home from a job that was taxing both mentally and physically. No complaint because it was my chosen profession for 41 years and I enjoyed it. But I’d like to have a politician or two follow me around back in those days before I retired. They wouldn’t last 5 minutes in the real world. And a lot of others no doubt much more difficult jobs.

          16. Matlonc says

            CORRECT. Supposed to be serving the people and not a lifetime career. Term limits would end just about all the gridlock. If you look at why they can never agree all you have to do is look at the leaders in both parties. They have all been there for at least 20 years and only serve their big donors.

    6. marcus J says

      Good Stuff !!!!! Thanks for making me smile , I`m sure the Communist Party formerly known as The Demonic Rats would love to have another Flake in their ranks

    7. Dan says

      great post

    8. RC says

      Flakey Flake is a chronic liar. He’s also a traitor of the highest order. My wife and attended one of his town hall meetings when he was running for the Senate. He said he was all for a secure border. Now he wants it open. He said he was all for the Second Amendment and believed in law abiding Americans owning firearms. When asked on TV if he supported Obama’s anti firearm agenda, his response was, ‘YOU BET!’ Though I’m a die hard conservative I have no problem with a person being a Democrat. That is, if they’re real Democrats and not Socialists (Communists) posing as Democrats. A true two party system keeps everyone honest to a point. What we have now is people like Flake and McCain who many can’t identify as being members of either party. And as for Flakey Flake, I wouldn’t vote for him to clean up the road apples after the horses have passed in a parade.

      1. SD of AZ says

        Me too RC. I did not vote for him but too many fell for his lies. Just as they have with McCain the lame. I have always just called him Flakey. There is not other way to look at him and he like Bozo have both been losers!

        1. Retired says

          It was not his lies it was Hillary and Sanders people either stayed home or voted for Trump .

          1. Charlie says

            Whatever, but Trump won and thats a good thing.

          2. Retired says

            You got that right .

          3. SNUFFER says

            I THIRD THE MOTION!

          4. mike Thor says

            Trump won but the democrats are still I influential in the business of the congress and are deterring Mr. Trump’s agenda making it appear as though he has abrogated his promises. Much of his successes have been at tremendous political costs and deliver only a portion of his intended legislation to fulfill his promises. Stay the course Mr. President, keep your promises and build our wall of law on the mex border. Please run for your second term so you can facilitate the full versions of your campaign promises. We the PEOPLE are behind you pushing and out front pulling the trigger on legislation. ENFORCE OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS AND ALL OF OUR LAWS. Protect the USA from the radical Islamic invaders who practice jihad and demand sharia law be practiced here in America instead of our traditional laws.

          5. Angee says

            I believe we needed a real businessman who knows how to run the country as a business instead of a Welfare Office. I posted the list of things he promised, and, has already fixed. His personal success as a businessman is due to the long hours he works, his incredible stamina; along with the love of country he clearly shows by his loyalty to our beautiful America. His children are the example of who he is. God Bless him!

          6. RC says

            I wholeheartedly agree. Never could understand what’s wrong with running the government like a successful business and not a non profit organization.

          7. SNUFFER says

            YES MA’AM YOUR ON TARGET WITH THAT ONE!!

          8. mike Thor says

            Run our country as the business concern as which it started. We ran at a small profit. War costs drove us into deficit spending but socialist programs have really bankrupted the USA! Build the wall and stop the hemorrhage of profits and companies out of the USA. Illegals take a vast majority of benefits which they’re sending home and out of our economy at a staggering rate. Stop ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION and allow in STEM qualified folks; push for ENGLISH AS THE ONLY LANGUAGE OF THE COUNTRY AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE USA. Pull our companies and profits back into America. Energize our people and slash socialist programs; each person can handle at least a part-time job. Pay off the deficit and only pay cash for programs. Put the USA back on the gold and silver standard so our money has an intrinsic value. Control the abysmal health care system’s rates of inflated cost increases and enforce the laws against fraud in the system by the penalty of death by public execution. Hold politicians accountable for their actions and criminal behavior. MAKE THE USA GREAT AGAIN!!!

        2. RC says

          Good for you. Flakey Flake really pulled the wool over our eyes. Of course we’re way out in the sticks in the ‘big city of Benson with it’s 3 stoplights.’ He really convinced a lot of us here that he was really a straight shooter.

          1. SD of AZ says

            RC, got relatives in Benson and the surrounding areas and Great Grandpa Wein was the sheriff there once. You an oldtimer?

          2. RC says

            No only been here since 1997. Since you know Benson, we live in J-six. Sort of out in the boondocks and like it. Quite a few deer and other wildlife. Even have had some bobcats on the front porch looking in the windows. Didn’t go out to play with those kitties.

            What’s really sad is that they’re in the process of destroying what could be a very desirable small town to live or retire in. Developers have shown up, sweet talked the City Council and they gave the developer the key to the city. They plan to build 28,000 homes, golf courses, grape vineyards, new businesses and want it to look like Italy by importing all kinds of shrubs, etc.

          3. PoorPitifulPearl says

            So sorry to hear that. I wish instead of just “up” or “down” votes, there would also be a sympathy vote, because it really does mess up a small town to start building so much that the original homeowners can’t afford the taxes. Fortunately, we live in an older subdivision where there is no room for expansion and we are surrounded by freeways and railroad tracks. That’s not a problem for us, but since they forbid the trains to use their horns at crossings, we’ve had more accidents and to tell the truth, I miss the sound at night. I could always tell which engine was on the track by the sound of its horn. Oh, the good old days!

          4. mike Thor says

            Is all of that development what the people of the Town want or is it the Golden Goose for just a few? Follow the money! Is Flake feathering his fluffy nest at your expense? Fire him IMMEDIATELY; TODAY, not at the end of the term!!

          5. SandyT says

            I’ve never stopped in Benson, but used to pass through there twice a week for about 10 years, on my way from the southeast (Louisiana and Alabama) to California and back, hauling processed chicken west, then produce east. I quit going out that way in 1996, but didn’t retire until 2010. I love Arizona.

          6. mike Thor says

            The name “Flake” certainly does qualify as TRUTH IN ADVERTISING. He is absolutely a breath of fresh air in that aspect… However, he is a LIAR; his promises, priorities, and passions pledged to the people are abrogated in his voting record. FIRE HIM NOW BEFORE HE DOES MORE HARM TO OUR REPUBLIC!!

        3. Angee says

          We’ve been fried with those 2 RINOS who only have collected the large sums of our hard earned taxes, along with McCain’s millions he got from Soros for letting Obozo win.

          1. mike Thor says

            It is a shame that once elected to Congress, a person can look forward to becoming a multimillionaire based on the position taken on certain issues at important times in history. ‘Tis a great shame to me that many members of congress are like ladies who sell their “Love” by the hour; when they vote with their economic masters they’re inflating their wallets; not doing the business of the people.

      2. Michael Dennewitz says

        I watched, as did most of our crew when they loaded up “songbird ” mccain, and most of us shouted, “Leave him there, LEAVE HIM THERE! ” The old goat is brain damaged! Oh, I forgot, you have to actually have a brain….but the bastard sold us out in Nam!😣

        1. SD of AZ says

          Thank you for your service and the truth!

          1. Michael Dennewitz says

            Well, I was stationed onboard ship. We took so much down there that I thought we would surely sink. Onboard an LPH (aircraft carrier). I was an FTG – Fire Control, Ground. My youngest brother (army) was on shore. They made a “tunnel rat” out of him. He’ll NEVER be right.. This country has always been known to stick their noses where they don’t belong!

        2. RC says

          I totally agree with you. But McCain isn’t the only one. We should have won, could have won and would have won in Viet Nam if those damn politicians in their cushy soft chairs had left the military alone to run military operations. Instead they all (both sides) felt they were so damn brilliant they could play general.

          1. PoorPitifulPearl says

            Kudos to you gentlemen of the military. You had to buck the odds and stuck to the job. It broke my heart when my husband came home from Viet Nam on a short leave before being transferred. He was in uniform and as I waited at the bottom of the escalator, I heard and saw nasty people spitting, cursing, and calling those brave men “baby killers.” I truly lay that kind of behavior at the feet of the militant left and the ignorance of our politicians. It should have never happened. We now live in a community where there are large numbers of military (active and retired) of all the services, and find that most civilians here are appreciative of their service. We’ve enjoyed hosting young service members for dinners on holidays, etc. You can’t find nicer “kids”…and they don’t care that we’re old “fogies.”

          2. SD of AZ says

            And here we are today suffering the same ignorant morons. PC anything demands we shove the idiots out the door where ever we see it. And McCain and Kerry are the worst of the worst! Vote them out. Anyone with the libturds!

          3. Retired says

            Thank the loony tunes in congress and Media .

            Trouble is, Loony Tunes is funny. Congress is an absolute disaster.

          5. Retired says

            Loony tunes as in Crazy and Nuts .

          6. SandyT says

            Yes, it’s really sad the way they were treated when they came home. My husband deployed to Vietnam when our son was only 4 months old and when he came back, he too, was called all kinds of horrible names. No service man or woman should be subjected to that kind of treatment, unless they are a “Bowe Bergdahl” type.

          7. Cat Woman says

            So sorry for how your husband was treated after Viet Nam. Thank him for his service.

          8. RC says

            Poor Pitiful Pearl, as I’ve mentioned, we could have, should have and would have won if those damn politicians had just let the military run military operations. Also, I feel a good part of this everything for the boys we constantly hear now is nothing more than guilt for the way those coming back from Viet Nam were treated. My time was long before that but I know from experience the men who come back from combat are a bit off the bubble and need a little support and in some cases a lot of help. As sad as it is, no doubt some of those who spit on your husband have probably been running our country for some time. Now THAT is scary.

          9. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Interesting viewpoint even if wrong. More importantly, we should never have been there.

          10. SandyT says

            At least we have a president now who respects and listens to our generals and has given them the authority to conduct war in the ways THEY know how to do it, to win!

        3. Robert Dostoevsky says

          You sir are a damn liar. McCain was respected by those in prison with him.

        4. Robert Dostoevsky says

          You sir are a damn liar. McCain was respected by those in prison with him.

      3. barbara says

        well said

      4. mike Thor says

        IF I’M HIRED TO DO A JOB, IN INDUSTRY, AND LIE ON MY APPLICATION, IT IS CERTAINLY A FIRING OFFENSE!!! If the people who elected a political hack wish him/her gone, a special recall election provides a new lawmaker to replace the incumbent member of the congress. Lying is a firing offense and commonly accepted business practices allow the removal of any sitting member of Congress just as it would apply to any other employee.

        1. RC says

          You made some very good points. But can you imagine any of the gutless Republicans and RINOs going after one of their own establishment types for lying on his job application? Of course they don’t live in the real world where one has to show up on time and do good work.

    9. Retired says

      There is another political flake that wants to take his place , could not make the grade for president and now crawling in the back door to try again .

          Jeff Flake, Senator from Arizona… an ardent swamp rat anti Trump Republican whom “will not seek re-election in 2018 due to disagreement with Trump and the direction the country is headed”… fails to mention that he is getting his ass handed to him in the polls by Dr.Kelli Ward, also of AZ… former State Senator and Trump supporter!
          The swamp rats are getting pushed out into the light for everyone to see!
          MAGA TRUMP 2020🇺🇸

          1. Retired says

            That is better to understand . just can Not figure out why she did not beat McQueen . Was there dirt thrown at her ????

          2. LM61 says

            Well, I am not sure what constitutes “dirt” however, she lost to McCain as he is/was well liked in AZ, but his past due date is expiring… then Donald Trump happened and like I said, the rats are coming into the light… according to Conservation Reveiw, McCain has only voted the conservative line 33% of the time, and opposed Trump 100% of the time. As we conservatives know, the ground swell that began Nov.8, 2016 is beginning to take hold and the establishment rinos are going to get their walking papers. It’s all a matter of timing. Robert Mercer a conservative billionaire from San Jose CA gave $300K to the super-pac to help Dr. Kellie Ward in her campaign in AZ… but to answer your question about “dirt”… politics at its core is “dirty” business…

          3. Retired says

            McCain’s colors were out in the open during Obamas term so how did the People in AZ fall for him is what I don’t get .

          4. SNUFFER says

            MCCAIN WAS AT ONE TIME A REAL AMERICAN PATRIOT- RIGHT BEFORE HE GOT HIMSELF CAPTURED BY THE VC. THEN IT IS NOT KNOWN WHAT PART HE PLAYED SINCE THERE IS NOT RUNNING CHART OF HIS STATEMENTS WHILE IN CAPTIVITY. LOOKS LIKE HE SPENT MOST OF HIS TIME IN THE VC HOSPITAL. OR IN THE HANOI HILTON.

          5. Robert Dostoevsky says

            You are a real idiot! The Hanoi Hilton is the nickname for the prison camp in Hanoi.

          6. SNUFFER says

            YOU ARE JUST ANOTHER BEN TOTLOUS- A REAL GOOF!!

          7. Robert Dostoevsky says

            You’re still an idiot, McCain was shot down flying a combat mission, one of more than 20 he had flown.

          8. Sharon Chesher says

            McCain had more money to throw around…and his recognizable name. Other than
            that, why else would he have won!!

          9. Retired says

            Stupidity of the voters in the primary .

          10. Angee says

            McCain also has the millions Soros gave him to let Obozo win the Presidency.
            Soros was all prepared to get the corrupt politicians deliver the USA to the Globalists. They knew Obozo would do it gladly…for the right amount of $$$. He just didn;t have enough time. That’s why he was helping Hillarious, he knew she’s too lazy to do any real work. He figured he would make the decisions for her and still turn us into the slaves of the One World Order. Read about the plans they have for the world. God sent President Trump to save America.

      2. Angee says

        The Clinton’s luck may have just run out. They blew it by their game of the Russians. Hope they get their due.

    11. Angee says

      Snow Flake sounds better for the Democrat he is at heart!

    12. niknar says

      The Republican establishment would be well-advised to leave the Republican Party & join the establishment Democrats after the progressives leave it & form their own party, which ought to be happening soon. Then the (3) major parties would much more honestly reflect the political beliefs of the American people than the 2 corrupt fossil corporatist parties do now.

    13. backtofront says

      Good one!

    14. Nick says

      Love it. Snow flake

    15. rick meek says

      Time to purge DC….

    16. cubuff62 says

      Arizona has McCain and that other Flake.

  2. Bill O'Neil says

    LOL, it’s the Democrats fault. Let’s see maybe we can blame the Dems for the asteroid that killed off the dinosaurs!!! What a stupid piece of drivel.

    1. Retired says

      It has to be the Democrats, because they can no longer blame Bush for all their problems

  3. chucky001 says

    Flake, like McCain, is spot-on about the orange lump of excrement masquerading as POTUS. True, since he’s retiring, he can be criticised for speaking out when he has nothing to lose by doing so. But that makes his comments no less true. And it is the rest of the GOP that are cowards, who refuse to speak out against the asshole-in-chief, and the idiots who continue to support him and his policies that are against their own interests. Unless, of course, you are a racist and a homophobe..

    1. SickofPoliticks says

      You’re so full of crap you can be called the brown lump of excrement masquerading as chucky001.

      1. Robert Uda says

        You are a very mentally ill liberal person. Dr. Michael Savage called it, “Liberalism is a mental disorder.”

        1. SickofPoliticks says

          If you’re talking to me, you are sadly mistaken. I’m a Conservative and I support our POTUS. I voted against Flake and McCain. Cannot stand either.

          1. Mathew Molk says

            I think he was talking to Chukshit. – Just hit the wrong replay button.

          2. SickofPoliticks says

            Sure hope so!!

          3. Robert Uda says

            If what you say is true, I apologize and withdraw my statement. I think I meant my statement for chucky001 and inadvertently put it to you. Sorry about that.

          4. SickofPoliticks says

            Of course it’s true. I have no reason to lie. And, if you’ll reread what I wrote to chucky001, you should be able to tell it was slamming him as a piece of crap. Jeesh.. nothing like a pseudo apology.

          5. Robert Uda says

            I meant it sincerely. However, if you took it as a pseudo-apology, that tells me a volumes about you. Maybe the original claim should stick.

          6. SickofPoliticks says

            Think about it… “If what you say is true…” You apologized by intimating that I might be lying. Gimme a break.

          7. Robert Uda says

            You are an impossible person. I bet your wife has a hard time with you. You cannot accept a simple apology. You’re as bad as those Lib-Dems.

          8. SickofPoliticks says

            I’m not impossible and my HUSBAND (yes, I’m a woman), says I think more like a man than woman in most instances, meaning logically. Your apology wasn’t simple. It was prefaced with the possibility that I wasn’t telling the truth. You can’t accept that your apology was half-hearted, at best. If you want to talk about being as bad as Libs/Dems, look in the mirror. You’e not even willing to accept responsibility for your own inadequate apology. You certainly didn’t act like this when you were on Sodahead. Yes… I knew you and we were friends. I even bought your book. Like I said, gimme a break.

          9. Robert Uda says

            Oh, no! You mean you are that nice lady (Doofiegirl who lives in Arizona?) who used to post all of my “Before It’s News” articles on Sodahead? You had me at a definite disadvantage, Doofiegirl. You knew my name and could see my photo with whom you were communicating. All I had was a pseudonym (SickofPoliticks) and who I thought was a man with whom I was communicating.

            How in the world we got so far off the beaten path on our postings? Sorry, Doofiegirl. If you were using that pseudonym, I would have recognized it right off and wouldn’t have responded as I was thinking it was a guy. I am embarrassed and will go off in a corner and self-commiserate. I won’t bother you any longer.

          10. SickofPoliticks says

            Actually, Bob, it’s TexasRed. Doofiegirl has had some health issues but communicates with FairLady on a regular basis. I’m a member of a web site FairLady runs and that’s how I keep up with what’s going on with some of our old Sodahead friends.

          11. Robert Uda says

            TexasRed?! We moved from San Marcos, California, to San Antonio, Texas, over two years and three months ago and am loving it here in Texas. I hope you know that I am very sorry for the misunderstanding we have between us. I am really not the kind of person that you think I am. It’s been nice knowing you. Bye.

          12. SickofPoliticks says

            Not a problem. We both went around in circles. I love San Antonio, it’s just a little too humid for me. We left California for the Dallas/Ft. Worth area in the 90’s. Best think we ever did. We live in AZ now, though. Small town and less humidity. Take care.

    2. glock 19 fan says

      You admire “Songbird” McCain? Yechhh!

    3. Frank Leach says

      Go figure; not every American shares your belief and that doesn’t make them ignorant or stupid or that they have any phobia. I appreciate that Trump won the Presidency every day because if the lying, conniving butcher of Benghazi won, we would be closer to the NWO.

      1. rfrichey says

        Frank, You can’t tell a fence post anything and chucky is dumber than a fence post. A fence post actually has a use and doesn’t eat, drink or breathe.

      F U, Chucky-Boy! You don’t know a damn thing about me, but, by lying about Trump. you’re also lying about me – and I’m NO “racist” or homophobe!!” Projecting here a bit, perhaps? It’s an old libturd trick, but you fool no one!

    7. Francisco Machado says

      We have the Democrat party to thank for the election of Donald Trump – because they ran a candidate for President who was substantially worse than Trump. She was so bad that she turned normally Democrat states to Republican. Lodge your complaints with them, with the DNC who dumped a candidate probably more to your liking.

      1. Mathew Molk says

        “substantially worse than Trump” ????? WTF, Over? For starts, who would have been better? Brat Bush the small child, or maybe Carly Schmarley, the killer of HP.

        For 50 years I have wanted to see a non-politician business man as Prez and the one we got couldn’t be more perfect. — He says EXACTLY what he means and is not a PC milquetoast.

        Do I like every single thing he has done (Especially Jeff the inert Sessions) ? No, but the last perfect guy in the world ended up with 60 penny spikes in his hands and feet. (And I thank that guy every morning for giving us President Trump)

        I have been a supporter since before he declared, and judging from the Job and stock markets I couldn’t have been more right.

        MAGA or get run over by the Trump Train!

  4. Frank Leach says

    I don’t care why he chose to exit the Senate; I’m just glad that he will. His counterpart from AZ is one of the worst RINOs in Washington and was way more a friend to BHO than to President Trump. It seems strange because I really believe that the people of Arizona are conservative hard working Americans who want a secure land and productive job market. I believe that they were tricked into voting for these Senators and hopefully they will have a highly intelligent and motivated conservative choice in 2018.

    1. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

      He retired since he could not beat Kelli Ward.

      1. mary murphy says

        And that’s OK. I would have been happier about it without the “Holier than thou” speech, but I hope he continues in public life somehow.

        1. richard king says

          Hell, no. Obscurity for the flakey flake.

        2. Carol says

          I think we will be seeing him again. Probably on CNN as a contributor.

          1. SD of AZ says

            Geez, I am sick of Flakey and he is such a hypocrite. He has no backbone. He switches from one idea to the next depending on who he is with at the moment. Campaigning he was conservative, voting he was dem wit, and his last few performances were definitely his swan song. The man is spineless and a liar to boot. Actions have to follow words and this dem wit has no problems saying one thing and immediately doing another. He actually is worse than McCain. At least McCain’s words and actions are consistently reflecting the same dem wit view. McCain because of his recent decisions is the darling of the dem wits these days. Flakey is just flakey consistently!

          2. Retired says

            How is it possible to be worse than McCain , he is the biggest problem in WDC on the republican side .

          3. SD of AZ says

            At least McCain says it and does it. Flakey is saying one thing like a dem wit then doing another. I would much rather deal with the one I recognize and can predict somewhat than a traitor in sheep’s clothing. Flakey is the traitor even worse. Ever hear the musings of Cicero? I have it saved. So, you get to read it.

            “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

            Flakey hid and was not recognized as an enemy within for quite a while. And there are still some others who are relatively hidden within the GOP probably even sneakier. And McCain is like the murderer you recognize.

          4. Retired says

            Good one . After McCain ran for Pres . is when I gave up on him , he turned me off . I think if the ticket had bin reversed there would have bin a chance for the first woman in the WH . I believe people did not trust him ,that is my opinion.

          5. SNUFFER says

            MCCAIN AT ONE TIME HAD A SMART MIND GOING FOR HIM- BUT HERE RECENTLY HE HAS BECOME A LIABILITY TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE PRESIDENT. HE HAS CAUSE ENOUGH GRIEF IN THE LAST 1.5 YEARS TO ALL OF A LIFE TIME. BYE BYE MCCAIN- GO HAVE SOME TIME TO YOURSELF BEFORE THE BRAIN BUG GETS YA. WE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY MEMBERS AND CITIZENS HAVE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOUR HELP

          6. LM61 says

            I have a sick feeling that being as Romney has campaigned for both McCain and Flake alike and he is a personal friend of Doug Ducey, if McCain steps down for health reasons, Ducey may 1. use Governor discretion and appoint Romney as McCains replacement, 2. Ducey could take McCains place and Romney would be almost a shoe-in for Ducey’s replacement as Governor in the next election…too many scenarios spinning to keep track. Romney is a good guy, family, wealth etc…but he is the epitome of a rino. My opinion of course.

          7. Sharon Chesher says

            Orin Hatch announced his retirement today, Romney has already claimed
            “Dibs” on his seat!! Hope Utah votes him out!!!

          8. LM61 says

            I was just reading those exact points… just when you think that the end of the swamp was just around the bend, up pops another cove full of more sludge! Don’t get me wrong, I think Romney is a nice guy, maybe to nice, but after watching him during the 16’ campaign, I lost respect for him and perhaps I misjudged his Jekyll/Hyde show!

          9. SD of AZ says

            Ditto! NOT ANOTHER RINO!

          10. SD of AZ says

            When did Romney move to AZ? I do not think the people of AZ want another rino. We are looking for conservatives and living here in AZ no matter what Ducey thinks of Romney is a pretty big thing for the voters. And Romney showed us all he is with the good old boy establishment during the 2016 campaigns. Ducey had better watch his step. And I would say that Trump will be watching Ducey as well and keeping tabs on Romney. I would be really disgusted if Ducey did something that stupid but we will see what actually happens.

          11. LM61 says

            I don’t think Romney has or will move to AZ… He does own property there and could list it as his primary residence however, since Orrin Hatch announced his retirement, Romney is a shoe in as Hatch’s Utah replacement…the swamp deepens… it won’t be much of a change being as Hatch’s voting record shows he only votes approximately 31% for the conservative line according to The Conservative Reveiw… we are in a marathon and not a sprint…

          yes! it should be like the military, get a dishonorable discharge and you dont even get a handshake, you walk away with nothing not even your stripes or bars!

        2. Ed Price says

          yes indeed

          1. delbert morris says

            We need to change the laws on that, time to demand a vote of the people.

          2. Ed Price says

            Recall petitions are very hard to accomplish. You need so many signatures in so little time and then they have to be verified by the Sec of State. So, kicking him out of office won’t happen. But, yes we need them to change the law. A ballot proposition would be the only way to make that happen because these mongrels will never give up the fatted calf.

          3. Angee says

            Two Term Limit should keep them from making $$ contacts for life. Once they start doing favors and getting paid for it by the wealthy “Voters” they get hooked on the $$

        1. Ed Price says

        2. PoorPitifulPearl says

          I certainly hope not. Mr. Romney is far from being a true Republican in his beliefs and has not had nice things to say about President Trump. His ego got in the way and he’s miffed because he lost to Obama because he’s merely a “luke warm” kind of guy. He’s a nice person and he’s got a great family, looks good, but just doesn’t cut it.

          1. Retired says

            You got that correct !

          2. SD of AZ says

            He is a rino and does not get along with Trump or MAGA. He was with the establishment all the way just like Bush daddy and his boys. Sick of these good old boys who think they know best for everyone else when most of them are as smart as a box of rocks. Just like the dem wits, NWO, and liberals. We deplorables can think for ourselves.

        3. SD of AZ says

          I will answer that, NO!

          1. Retired says

            I Read something this morning that he was thinking of jumping in but I might have gotten the states mixed up because tonight I saw it was Utah . So Either I screwed up or the article was wrong .

    2. Brad Fisher says

      And isn’t it something that this President is revealing who all is not American and not one bit patriotic but just out to pad their pockets!!!!

      1. SD of AZ says

        Bozo turned a lot of them out too. Their actions under his horrific influence showed it all. Trump is just showing who is a real conservative versus the liars club known as the rinos.

        1. Retired says

          I read Mitt Boy wants to take Flakes place ???

          1. SD of AZ says

            Oh dear, when did he move into the neighborhood? If he is coming to AZ then it really is going down hill in this state. Actually since it is hot here we are going to hell if Mitt is moving in.

          2. Retired says

            That is why I asked . why would he move . As you know I ask a lot of Questions when not sure .

          3. SD of AZ says

            Oh, so you want to know if Mitt Romney lives in AZ and can even be elected for this state where he does not reside? I do not think so and that seat is Ward’s these days in AZ. One big reason Flakey is leaving without a fight. Did that settle it for you Retired?

          4. Retired says

            I looked Ward up on WIKI . I hope she Is good as there was not to much on personal life . Flake filled his drawers with her running the way I see it . To bad she did not Knock McCain out .Thanks for getting back .

          5. SD of AZ says

            McCain cheated is my view. He was not well liked in AZ in 2016 and since has buried the hatchet in AZ’s back. The Chamber of commerce backed him and I suspect used the voter fraud machine. No one I know voted for him.

            Ward is a doctor and was in the AZ senate. She talks a good argument and is from the Yuma area. She like all candidates may be full of BS just like Flakey but if so then it will be one term just like Flakey. We shall see. I sincerely hope she is going there to work with Trump and help with MAGA despite old hateful McCain.

          6. Retired says

            I think in the future we will se more one term elected as the Swamp goes dry . Thanks for getting back .

    3. delbert morris says

      The good people of Arizona keeps voting this creeo McCain back to congress because they can’t stand him, at least when he’s in DC they don’t have him there to listen to or see. If you have not noticed, every time he has time off he flys to other countries on our dime.

      1. SD of AZ says

        I have been stunned that Trump won in 2016. Chamber of commerce backed him and I think there was fraud. No one and I mean no one claims a vote for McCain that I know. He was unpopular then but with voter fraud it was possible. Phoenix and Tucson are hot beds of illegals and liberal morons! Hell, the Phoenix mayor is trying to go sanctuary! That says a whole lot in my opinion. They need to reform the voting rules and laws. And edit the elections. Discourage illegals from voting? Hell yes!

        1. Topher Smith says

          Illegals dont vote. Proof? Links?

          1. Retired says

            BS to that . You do not need a birth certificate to get a drivers License which can be used to register to vote . Ask your Clerk if they ever check for a birth certificate .

            No, you don’t. Your grammar is that of a public high school dropout. Shall I share your posts with your friends, family, and employers? What degree? What college? You made a claim therefore the burden of proof is on you, dropot. Shall I trace you now, wantwit? Shall we compare I.Q.’s? Your IQ is?

          13. richard king says

            I stand by my statements, and you are no judge of grammar or anything other than the latest party line.I made a post, and you can judge it any way you want, with your limited perspective.
            As for your threats, take your best shot, punk. You are not “Topher Smith”, nor are you the prosecutor of Breitbart posts. What you appear to be is a 7th grader.

          14. Topher Smith says

            Okay. I will. Oh, and yes I am. Christopher, to be exact. You are an old, poor, uneducated fool. You must be proud. Off to spokeo now…

          15. richard king says

            Oh, one more thing. What are you? I’m looking at this photograph of yours. I’ve never seen anything like that.

          16. Topher Smith says

            One more thing? You already shared that nonsense. You are being traced. You seem mental and need help.

          17. Topher Smith says

            Why do you have myriad anonymous accounts? It’s pitiful.

          18. Retired says

            Old Troll .

          19. Topher Smith says

            More nonsense.

          20. Topher Smith says

            Tracing you now. What do you get from spewing uneducated drivel from multiple anonymous accounts? I am going to find out why you are ashamed and what went so wrong in your life.

          21. Retired says

            You are scum of the Earth , go back to your dumpster with the rest of the trash bags you have played .

          22. Topher Smith says

            Belle Meade is a dumpster? You are projecting.

          23. Retired says

            You can go to hell for lying , but then living in a dumpster must be hell , eh BOY !!

          24. Topher Smith says

            You seem mentally ill. You should quit projecting now.

          25. Retired says

            You just gave yourself away Muslim . Not to bright are you !!

          26. Topher Smith says

            I am not Muslim. How did I “give myself away”?

          27. Topher Smith says

            Oh, and it would be “too”, brainiac.

          28. Retired says

            You misspelled maniac ,is what you is !!!

          29. Topher Smith says

            Wow. You are a special kind of stupid, brainiac. You must be proud.

          30. SD of AZ says

            Now I know you are AK. That is he/she/it’s game. I am blocking you again moron.

          31. Topher Smith says

            No, I am not.

          32. SNUFFER says

            JUST LOOKED CLOSELY AT YOUR PICTURE AND YOUR A NUT CASE- PULL IT BAD GUY.

          33. Topher Smith says

            Okay, psycho.

          34. SD of AZ says

            Topher is the hick and uneducated moron here. He is using one of the most proven topics to debate. He lost the minute I saw his post.

          35. SD of AZ says

            You topher are the liar. You must be the dimmest bulb in the bunch. Nothing is older than your argument and it has been blown out of the water repeatedly. Get some new material. Facts are facts and you are the uneducated hick!

            And again, do your own research. I will not waste time arguing with a moron!

          36. Topher Smith says

            How was it blown out of the water, old lady? I do my own research. You made a claim therefore the burden of proof is on you.

          37. richard king says

            Eleven counties in California have been certified as having cast more votes than there are voting age people. I have no doubt that this fraudulent practice has polluted Arizona as well. That may account for the immigration stance of McCain and Flake, sleazy politicians that they are.

          38. Retired says

            Ill had the same in some communities . I believe Philly had some districts as well .

          39. Topher Smith says

            More opinion. Link? Facts? “Certified” by? How far did you get in your eduation?

          40. SD of AZ says

            I told Richard you would pull this. You must be AK. Only that moron would be as ridiculous. This is an old argument Topher. Your material is stale and your line is dumber than dumb. Go away, you are a troll!

          41. Topher Smith says

            Pull what? Your IQ, Susan?

          42. SNUFFER says

            YOU ANOTHER BOB TOTOLOUS GOOF BALL!!

          43. SNUFFER says

            DOES HIS EDUCATION KEEP HIM FROM JOINING INTO A REGULAR CONVERSATION IF HE WANTS- AND SHOULD YOU BE THE ONE TO ASK HIM ABOUT HIS EDUCATION. HE HAS A PERFECT RIGHT TO BE HERE JUST LIKE YOU DO. THAT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT HIS EDUCATION IS – AND ITS REALLY NOT ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS EVEN TO ASK. BUT HE WOULD ASK YOU I’M CERTAIN YOU WOULD PROVIDE DOCUMENTS AND A COMPLETE GRADE HISTORY AND A PERSONAL LETTER FROM THE DEAN. THIS SI WHAT HAPPENS ON FORUMS- THERE IS ALWAYS CERTAIN PEOPLE WHO SLAP OTHER PEOPLE AROUND WITH THERE SO CALLED DIPLOMAS AND INTELLECT THEY THINK THEY HAVE. BUT WHAT AMAZES ME IS THE IS A FULL SMORGASBORD OF JOB THAT COULD BE FILLED BY THESE WANNABE EDUCATED IDIOTS TRYING TO SHOW OFF THEIR SO CALLED SMARTS ON EVERY SUBJECT FROM HOW TO GET HOUSE FLY SEMEN SAMPLES FROM A FLY ON THE WING TO HOW TO CHANGE A FLAT WHILE THE CAR IS MOVING. AND MORE 5 TIMES MORE DUMB THAT THOSE 2 EXAMPLES. AND MOST OF ALL THE SMART ARE FROM WHAT THEY HAVE HEARD ON THE SUCH CESSPOOL NETWORKS AS NBC AND CNN AND OTHERS ON THE SNOWFLAKE BAND WAGON.
            PEOPLE DON’T LIKE SNOBS AND PEOPLE WHO LOOK DOWN AT OTHERS BECAUSE OF THEIR EDUCATION. MOST ACT AND TRY TO SOUND LIKE PROFESSORS USING BIG WORD THEY LOOKED UP ON THE INTERNET AND THEN USE THEM ON THE FORUM TO TRY AND SHOW THE UNDER EDUCATED WHO THEY THINK THEY ARE. AND MOST OF THE WANNABE PROF. DON’T EVEN HAVE A GED THAT IS LEGIT. SAD!

          44. Topher Smith says

            Wow. Seek help.

          45. SD of AZ says

            Darn Richard, I wanted Smith to go off and look it up. If you are going to spell it out for him then tell him about the ones facing trials these days who are illegals who did vote. That is in some news sites but the big propaganda machines won’t bring it up. Then there are the people who move but vote in every precinct they moved out of. There is the dem wit helpers in the retirement homes who register the old voters then collect their ballots and vote for them, etc. etc. etc. And then we have the people who died but are still voting. It is amazing how creative the dem wits are. And where ever you have a dem wit in charge, they resist the checks going on. There is a business of people who are going after this fraud professionally. Makes one wonder where Topher is that he knows nothing of this Richard. He knows but wants to say we are not presenting facts just suppositions!

          46. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Who certified there were more votes cast than voting age people? California requires voter registration so it would be rather impossible to have more voters than registrants.

          47. SD of AZ says

            Do your own homework Smith. I do not research for dem wits!

          48. Topher Smith says

            Make your own argument, old lady.

          49. SNUFFER says

            I WANT TO BEG YOUR PARDON- I WAS EYE WITNESS TO 3 RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME AT OUR VOTING PRECINCT – I WAS LISTENING INTENSELY AND THE LANGUAGE THEY WERE MUTTERING. I WAS WONDERING HOW 3 PEOPLE THAT COULD OF GONE THROUGH THE PUBLIC SYSTEM AND COULD NOT SPEAK A LICK OF ENGLISH. THE VOTING HELPERS WERE ALL TIED UP TRYING TO GET THEM TO UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF THE GAME. I WAS LESS THAN 3 FEET AWAY AT ALL TIMES AND HEARD WHAT THE HELPERS ASK THEM TO PROVIDE. THEY HAD NONE OF THE NECESSARY DOCUMENT TO VOTE. I HAD ALL MY PAPERS AND CARDS DRIVERS LICENSE SS CARD ETC. WITH ME IN CASE MY ENGLISH AND SKIN TONE LOOKED LIKE I WAS TRYING TO DO SOMETHING ILLEGAL.
            THE HELPER TOOK THEM TO A VOTING MACHINE AND HAD TO GO THROUGH ALL THE PEOPLE RUNNING AND PLACES WHERE TO CHECK. THIS TOOK 3 OF THE HELPERS BEING ASKED BY THE MEXICAN HELPERS IF THIS WAS RIGHT. SO I WAS IN ON THE ENGLISH PART OF THE INSTRUCTIONS. WHEN FINALLY ALL THE CRAP AND MEXICAN LANGUAGE TRANSLATION THEY CAST A VOTE- AND WITH NO DOCUMENTS TO DO SO. WHEN I GOT THERE WITH MY WIFE IN AMAZEMENT LIKE I WAS- I ASKED THEM WHY I WAS ASKED FOR MY ID OR VOTER REGISTRATION CARD. THEY PROMPTLY TOLD ME THAT I CAN’T VOTE WITHOUT IT. OF COURSE KNOWING MYSELF- I PROMPTLY ASK HOW IN THE WORLD DID THE LAST ONES GET TO VOTE. AND BY THE WAY ALL 3 OF THEM WERE AT THE SAME VOTING MACHINE WHILE IT WAS BEING EXPLAINED TO THEM. AFTER I ASKED MY QUESTIONS I WAS DIRECTED TO A PLACE ON THE SIDE OF THE VOTING AREA- AND HAD TO WAIT UNTIL A SENIOR REP. CAME AND DECIDED TO TALK TO ME AFTER TALKING TO HIS VOTING HELPERS 5 MINUTES PRIOR TO ME. LIKE HE WAS GETTING HIS ANSWERS ALL RIGHT BEFORE HE GOT TO ME. HE DID OR WOULD NOT EXPLAIN TO ME WHY THEY HAD NO DOCUMENTS AND STILL WERE ABLE TO CAST A VOTE. HE SAID IF I HAD QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THE VOTING WENT – I WOULD HAVE TO IN WRITING SEND A LETTER TO THE COMMISSION IN MY COUNTY. THEN I NEED THE THEIR NAMES AND THE NAMES OF THE VOTING HELPERS AND A DOZEN DIFFERENT HOOPS IN WOULD NEED TO GO THROUGH. SO, I DONE EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANTED ME TO DO AND THAT WAS TURN THE OTHER CHEEK AND GO HOME WITH LEGAL QUESTIONS OF VOTER FRAUD AND IRREGULARITY’S STILL GOING ON. SO, I CALLED THE TV STATION WITH A COMMERCIAL ON ABOUT VOTER FRAUD AT POLLING PLACES. I TOLD THEM OF WHAT WE SAW AND SAID THEY WERE COMING RIGHT OUT- THEY WERE A NO SHOW AFTER WHAT THE NATIONALITY’S WERE OF THE FRAUDULENT VOTERS WITH NO DOCUMENTS. THIS HAPPENED WHEN MONKEY EARS WON HIS SECOND TERM. IT IS HAPPENING – WE WERE WITNESS TO IT RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. ALL THE RULES FOR VOTING AND PROCEDURE WERE THROWN OUT THE CASA WINDOW.

          50. Topher Smith says

            Why lie, psycho?

          Chamber of Commerce is the Number one Campaign contributer and next is the American Realators association .

          1. SD of AZ says

            Deep pockets representing big business. So who might want to rig elections? I think the chamber and the other fronts are in cahoots with the dem wits. More opposition to reform outside the DC Cesspool.

          2. Retired says

            I think they have a big office in the area if not in WDC . They also do a lot of lobby work .

        3. Robert Dostoevsky says

          I’m wondering what voting rules and laws you want reformed. I keep waiting for some real proof of illegal s voting. Not sure how you edit an election unless you want to “fix it”.

    4. foundingfathersfollower says

      Many of “our” politicians in Washington D.C. are narcissistic sociopaths, hence very good
      at faking and duping…………….Flake, Corker, McClain, the Clintons, Chuck Schumer, Adam “Snake” Schiff, Elizabeth Warren and many, many more.

      1. SD of AZ says

        Same in big business. Power corrupts and absolutely is a magnet for sociopaths. We need to vet em better. Term limits and know who they are and what their voting records are once they are in. Same with judges. We need better intel.

        1. Retired says

          You got that right !!!

  5. Breaux Staedt says

    I was ready to support Ms. Ward – until I read about a town hall where she discussed…Chemtrails ? Unless that’s just more ” fake news “…LOL I’m hoping for a primary in which an intelligent candidate or two emerges ;-}

    1. Retired says

      Is that possible from his state ??

    2. Mike Rodgers says

      Heard the stuff about chemtrails is just some of the made up BS by the Left..

      1. Mathew Molk says

        Check out his record,,,,Trust me. He is just another publicity seeking crook. LOTS of shady deals in his past. (Reminds me of LBJ, in fact)

        Besides, is another life long politician way you want to see in Washington?

        1. Robert Uda says

          However, at least we know he will support the Trump and “We the People’s” agenda, which is not what we currently have with Flake. Plus that, he would not be a career politician since he is 85 years old. Maybe we will get eight good years out of him to serve through Trump’s two terms. I’m a pragmatist, not a politician and ideologue. Remember, all politicians are crooks. We just want someone who is less of a crook than all the others.

      2. Robert Dostoevsky says

        I’ve met Joe, he careful what you wish for. He cost Maricopa county millions.

          1. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I noticed you included the national debt and blamed it on Obama without blaming Congress. Are you collecting S.S or Medicare? If so, blame yourself a little too.

          2. ARTPSYCH says

            Obutthead cost us way more than 10 trillion- lives were lost due to Hillary’s love with Libya, unfocused National growth at a stagnant 1.3% growth rate, paying into the Paris accord in billions and Iran as well. Jobs were at an all-time low with the ayatollah obumblebutt! Obuttballs cost us a lot in the way of 11 to 12 trillion due to a lousy imbalance of trade with a staggering amount of unemployment! Bush pushed us to that edge with the sell out to buyers for homes and the savage housing brokers had no rules..so they preyed on people who were not eligible for buying homes and they lost those homes. Obutthead mismanaged the next 8 years with a Marxist ideology that was fiscally never sound as Bush’s nor especially Trumps.
            Trump did resolve those major issues and we have now over 6 trillion in stock market value in less than 10 months! Lowest unemployment since 1973 and over 1.7 million more jobs. this is my short list
            Virus-free.

          3. ARTPSYCH says

            Yeah! I’d say trump gets at least domestically an A for his work here.

  6. arshloch says

    He lived up to his name; no bigger FLAKE ever existed. A new line of work should be easy to find, toilet cleaners are always in demand.

    1. rfrichey says

      We good conservative Republicans here in Tennessee also have a flake and he’s a corker on top of that. Same thing here, once Bobby boy decided to turn on our President he knew his goose was cooked with the people of Tennessee with the exception of some of the hillarycrats.

      1. Brad Fisher says

        Glad you’re bringing foolish corker out as well!

      2. marcus J says

        I agree , We here in Arizona have known for some time that Bob Corker is another RINO Weasel who should be honest enough to put a D behind his name

  7. gotabgood says

    It is amazing… I do not like Mr. Flake, or maybe I should say his policies. But when someone wakes from a coma, (which he has been in all his political life) and speaks out against a traitor, a liar, a racist, a womanizer, a brainless, ego maniac… (Trump, for those who can’t keep up), It is time to applaud his full recovery.

    1. Robert Uda says

      You are a very mentally ill liberal person. Dr. Michael Savage called it, “Liberalism is a mental disorder.”

      1. rfrichey says

        I’m not sure gotta is a person.

          He is a TROLL !!!!!!!!!

      2. Michael Dennewitz says

        Ahhh, GOTTABEDUMBERTHANSHIT IS BACK.. 😁😂🤣😃😄😆

      3. gotabgood says

        Michael Savage… Now there is a guy you should trust with your life..
        Nothing extreme with Mr. Savage..nope, nothing at all.

    2. Amargomate says

      Excellent description !!!…
      Now, please…make another one about Hillary…
      We are waiting anxiously…

      1. gotabgood says

        Hillary Clinton..not my first choice, but a far cry better than her opponent.
        She has been helping people all her life, she was behind the health insurance when Bill was president. She cares about the American people, she believes healthcare is a right, she believes colleges should be free. She believes in diplomacy and not war. She along with the rest of American people were lied to about Iraq!!
        She has been under the watchful eye of the Republican Party since she was first sworn into public office.. Never an indictment, never an arrest, let alone a conviction. I think it is time the Republican Party moves on, and admit you were wrong.

      1. gotabgood says

        Their rating…….. would they be above National Enquirer or below?? Either case must be close competition..

  8. Mike Rodgers says

    Flake and his family ranch employ(ed?) lots of illegal aliens …. so…. I just wonder where he gets his stance on immigration…

    1. Do as I say, not as I do says

      He must be smarter than us, because now we get to pay him a huge retirement plus his Cadillac insurance for life. Somehow, we have to change the policy that grants these scumbags so much, for doing nothing, but lining their own pockets.

    2. richard king says

      Actually turned out to be stupid, he had to quit in the face of rejection, thus becoming a failure. Not smart.

  9. daveveselenak says

    Another punk-azz pretender that is appropriately named “Flake”, it doesn’t get any better than that! Kiss off J. “Snow-Flake” and take that demented looking and thinking Uncle Fester twin “McShame”, the treacherous Manchurian candidate with you!

  10. don says

    Flake is a loser & quitter. That tells you a lot about is character!!!!

    1. rfrichey says

      A winner never quits and a quitter never wins. Bye bye turdflake.

  11. Robert Uda says

    This Flake is the ultimate flake. He has no business in politics. He pollutes it. Good riddance to bad garbage. He is the typical phony conservative masquerading as a RINO. He and McCain must go. Bye-bye! and don’t let the door hit you on the way out, loser!

          Mitt Boy wants to run .

          1. Robert Uda says

            Nooo, way! I supported Mitt twice. No more. He went off the deep end. I will never support him ever again. In fact, I will work against him running in Utah to fill the vacancy that will be left by Sen. Orin Hatch’s retirement. Mitt is very bad for the Trump and “We the People’s” agenda. Defeat Mitt Romney at all cost.

          2. Retired says

            You got that right , one of the fair haired boys .

  12. donl says

    Lousy Exit, Flake.

  13. 4freedom says

    Flake is a phony of the worst kind, he back stabbed the people in Arizona, ran as a solid conservative then once in office turned into a Democrat, he should leave with his tail between his legs in shame.

  14. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

    Ran as a Conservative, but voted like a liberal rat instead.

  15. dan miller says

    The people of Arziona need to force him and McCain from office though a recall election or though a vote of their state lawmakers and governor

    1. Just1Saddletramp says

      Unfortunately, Federal officials are not subject to recall by the electorate nor respective state lswmakers. The only way McCain and Flake can be sent packing is through the ballot box or the U.S. Senste itself.

  16. Ron Dapo says

    Very true and, on the mark article. He did take the cowards way out!

  17. Teleman119 says

    RINOS are going to become extinct over the next 7 years. This is the Party of Bannon now and will be for a long time.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      Sure looks like that to me too.

  18. carl says

    Trump will be in a better position to get things done once we get rid of the Rhinos.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      RINOs are more dangerous then all the NWO Marxists (aka democrats) all put together. Get then out first and replace then with non politician patriots and it will be smooth sailing. The NWO Marxists will be powerless to stop us.

      Mitch the bitch should be the first one we send doen the road too, The then RINO Ryan right behind him.

  19. JC says

    This person (Flake) has no business in our government—he reminds me of what a banana republic is all about—he would be good in serving in that type of government

  20. Ron Dapo says

    Very true and, on the mark article. He did take the cowards way out! Fixated on his own ineptitude, l was waiting for him to throw a tantrum..

  21. ray2hill says

    Jeff Fake is the most honest conservative in the Senate. The only reason more Republicans have not joined him is they have no balls.

    1. nocbsfan says

      What is good Majority of Arizonians do not agree with you. So ray2hill where is your b**s, why don’t you run for the Senate Or are you just a coward with a big mouth MAGA

    2. Mathew Molk says

      Wish ALL the RINOs would join him. Especially McCain. Mitch the Bitch and RINO Ryan.

  22. carroll wood says

    Jan Brewer and the sheriff gone and Az has a flake and a traitor in the District of Corruption

  23. Brad Fisher says

    Mr Flake is truly flakey. No doubt about it. Glad he’s leaving. Now for the next flake….McCain. He is not just flakey but morally bankrupt.

    1. Robert Uda says

      Just ask his first wife who he dumped for a rich heir, Cindy, his current wife. McCain is as scumbaggie as one can be.

  24. Michael Dennewitz says

    Well, it’s like I’ve always said, MOST politicians can’t even be trusted! Their first and foremost thought is to reach back and see how fat their wallets are! 😣😏🤔

  25. Jim Wagenmann says

    Flake is an immature asshole who lied to his constituents. Dem/socialists have disgraced the fallen soldiers of gold star families during their convention and recently about a phone call. Both instances are about money and politics. Flake is upset with Trump for coming to the defense of the deceased heroes.

  26. Jmanjo says

    You know, maybe somebody put something in the water in Arizona to make both of their Republican senators turn coats! I get that they were or could have been upset that Trump won over their preferred candidate but to screw up the Congress when you finally get the political edge is totally playing into the swamp camp! McCain evidently already has brain damage and Flake, well, he is just a flake! This is what Americans have been upset about in the political sphere for all these years. We all have known that once they get to office it is all about greed and them selling their country out!

    1. stoth says

      go on the internet and take a look at McCain’s history… Don’t faint when you see were McCain attempted a wet start that went very bad and ultimately cause the death of 134 men and great damage to the ship. He was transferred to another carrier – the navy’s way to cover up. Remember McCain’s Dad and Granddad were 4 star admirals in the Navy.

      1. Mathew Molk says

        I have no use at all for McCain, but that is total bullshit. – The only thing McCain had to do with the Forestall fire is he almost got killed in it.

        Leave the fake news and lies to the NWO Marxists.

        You can read the truth here if you care to know it,
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1967_USS_Forrestal_fire

        1. stoth says

          If I had a father that is a 4 star Admiral and also a 4 star admiral for a grandfather, I would be transferred to another vessel and get the truth covered up.

      2. Robert Dostoevsky says

        The official Navy report is much more reasonable than some internet allegation (aka bullshit).
        Since you think you’re right:
        What position was McCain’s plane in on the ship? Do you know what a wet start is? Does it have to do with the afterburner? Weren’t all the pilots transferred since the carrier was damaged?
        Will you respond? I doubt it.

  27. Just1Saddletramp says

    Flakes ancestors were a pioneer family in Arizona. Interestingly enough, they and another pioneer family by the name of Snow founded a town in Arizona called Snowflake

  28. John D says

    Flake is as bad as McStain. I have no use for either of them

  29. Danny says

    I believe Flake the Snake helped Traitor McCain pay for the Russians to conjure up the lies in the dossier anti Trump document when they ran out of money and made a deal with Hillary to pick up on it

  30. Dorothy Foster says

    I am for getting rid of ALL who do not support TRUMP 100%

    1. Mathew Molk says

      That is exactly what is happening, one RINO and NWO Marxist (aka democrat) elite at a time.

  31. Heidi Kuhl says

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  32. SouthernPatriot says

    Flake spent his time attacking Trump, rather than doing anything “conservative.” What is “conservative” about his immigration position? He supports illegal felon invaders, does not want a wall, does not want the illegals rounded up and deported, all because he was raised on a ranch which employed illegals which enriched his family. Hypocrisy. His position is alien to conservatism.

    Where is President Trump’s policies on defense of our border, regulating who gets into this country, and immigration restrictions not conservative. Maybe what Flake means is that Trump does not toe the establishment policy line, but those policies are certainly conservative in the South where I live.

  33. Artemis says

    Donald Trump is the only President in my time that has put the “will of the people” first, so essentially, those who persist to “butt heads” with Mr. Trump are not the Open to the “will” of the people, and then “we the people” have no choice but to treat him as an adversary. He should join the Liberals who do everything in their power to belittle our Country. Why don’t they quit hiding behind the title of Democrats….NOTHING could be farther from the truth! Someone “pulled the stopper” from the sink, and it’s a great beginning! McCain should one of the next to “opt” out…..some “War Hero”.

  34. johnz says

    We the little working people are sick of the political sell outs and panders to anti-American progressives foreign and domestic advocacy groups.

  35. higgy01 says

    Sending Flake and Corker to the showers is part of Trump’s promise to drain the swamp. It seems that others in the senate, instead of rallying around Flake and Corker, have provided more support to the President.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      Like I said. – To be a Never Trumper is to commit political suicide

  36. Garys_opinion says

    “NeverTrump narrative”! No we don’t have to respect them, they are putting their personal animosity ahead of what’s good for the country.

  37. Elizabeth Lewis says

    I admire Flake. Even though he is an ultra conservative, there is a line he wont cross. I wish the rest of the republicans would have the balls to stand up to Trump. Trump will go down in history as the most damaging, devisive, embarrassing president. Perhaps post Trump America will rise from his ‘Make America Hate Again” Program?

    1. Mathew Molk says

      Yea really bad. Anybody that is not working 40 plus doesn’t want a job. It’s also really awful the stock market doing where the 401s and pensions for the retired people depend on.

      Just what kind of drugs are they giving you useful idiots?

  38. Eric Pearson says

    Republicans control the Senate, The House and the White House. Yet, in your opinion, the problem is Democrats. Thank you for the brilliant analysis, Einstein.
    Anyone with the intellect to have a thought of their own can see the real problem. It’s morons at the top of your party and morons, like you, who support them.
    Trump and his ‘clan’ are an embarrassment and he is a clear and present danger to our national security. He’s obviously unstable and unhinged and very likely a financial criminal. For the sake of the country and the entire world I’m looking forward to the day he and Pence and Kushner, etc., etc., etc. find themselves behind bars.
    Have a nice day.

    1. stoth says

      To have allowed Russia 20% of our uranium is what a moron would do -this is real treason. You no doubt want Bergdahl set free, and also agree with Obama and his dealing with Manning.
      When the smoke clears on the uranium deal there will be room for Hillary, Holder, Lynch and Obama in federal prison. Be sure to see the comic Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
      Have a nice day.

    2. Mathew Molk says

      Boy, am I ever embarrassed at all the high buck jobs in the want ads and the stock market reports in the news papers every day. Having rocket man shaking in his boots and the total defeat of ISIS also is embarrassing as all hell too isn’t it.

      Why don’t you go soak your head in a bucket of your week and runny bullshit,,,,for an hour of two.

  39. Greg says

    “There are none so blind as those who will not see.” If each of you were to stick to the principles that should guide each and every one of us you might realize that this person has made the correct decision. If, however you are stuck in a belief that being a Republican is the only right answer no matter what harm the party leadership does then you are the problem. Blaming others will not correct the harm being done. It will not bring back the dead. It will not justify any policy that does harm to another. All of you who claim to be Christian need to examine the words of Christ and start adopting them into your lives.

  40. stoth says

    Mr Flake is much like Hillary. Neither can meet the muster when duties calls and it is always someone’s fault, but never theirs.

  42. marcus J says

    I have lived in Arizona for many years , For as long as I can remember many here have hated and despised that two faced ,Back stabbing RINO Weasel John McShame , Every time I was forced to Vote for that Traitor was because he was the lesser of two evils ( McShame VS. Comrade Chairman Obama ) When Jon Kyl decided to retire it was sad , He was actually a decent Senator , At first we thought The Flake was a decent replacement , Then he began to advocate for and Pander to illegal aliens and showed his true colors , Many in Arizona saw Jeff ( The Flake ) Flake for the two faced RINO Weasel that he really is , Another John ( The Traitor ) McShame , Both my Senators should have enough integrity to admit that they are secretly members of the Communist Party formerly known as The Demonic Rats and put a D behind their name , I hope and pray that soon we will have at least one decent Senator again , Dr. Kelli Ward would be a good choice I believe

  43. cg says

    Bye Bye Flake!

  44. Buck Stearns says

    He has managed to prove his chief detractor right. The Senator appears guilty as charged on all counts!

  45. Richard Start says

    He forgot when he went to Washington it was to server The People. Yes he is suppose to serve the people of his State and Trump carried his home State of Arizona. Doesn’t that make at least 2 reasons he should be working with our President? Our Country elected him by the terms of our Constitution and his own State picked him in the electoral college!. Is he our leader or the one we elected President! It is past time These want to be’s and other envious don’t have it’s step back and let the man Donald Trump work without a pack of dogs nipping at his heals! It is hard enough to be a leader and President of our Country but try it when surrounded by hyena’s! One less in the halls of Congress will be welcome.

  46. andnowyoudont says

    If this is a path he’s “not willing to take” why isn’t he stepping down NOW?? Not just a flake- but a phony. Probably going to try to. s crew Prez Trump as much as poss. before he “retires”.

  47. WhiteFalcon says

    Someone needs to get Brain Dead McCain to quit now, or sooner. He, at this point, is just an embarrassment to himself. He needs to retire while he can still enjoy a little of his retirement. He doesn’t have much time to do it and if he doesn’t do it in the next six months or so, he never will because he will be dead shortly afterward.

  48. Richard Start says

    As a State Senator he is suppose to be the voice of his State but his Trump carried Arizona in the election and now he is not sounding like the voice of Arizona so much is he? No he sounds like the Voice of Washington D.C. If it were not for his resignation Senators have 6 year terms meaning a State could easily lose it’s voice with a guy like him in office for a long time! This happened with the adoption of he 17th amendment when Senator’s went from being appointed by State Government’s to elected by popular vote just like the House of Representatives. Maybe we need to that so in the future before these RINO’s can resign to big false fan fare they can be recalled. The Amendment which gave us Prohibition making it illegal to sell alcohol was repealed, I can’t see why we can’t do the same with a part of the 17th Amendment and force Senator’s to pay more attention to the wants or needs of their States instead of the popular attitueds fo the D.C. set.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      I would not like that at all. We have FAR too many political appointees as it is. —- Kay-Sucks brother in law is not who I would have wanted as the Senator from Ohio.

      1. Richard Start says

        Instead what we have are people in Washington who not only have not lived in our State for years becoming corupted by the Washington group think ideas that either have nothing to do with our State or are not serving the best intrest of the Citizens’ of the State of ___ but also were elected to office with money that more then likily came from RICH OUT OF STATE donor’s who don’t care about local issues and will sell out your State and mine for what ever sounds good on paper! Our Senator’s are no longer concerned with the needs of the people they Represent from the States they came from or whether or not those States support Washington’s idea’s of what is best for our Country. How many Supreme Court cases did States put forth during the Obama years? It became obvious their Senator’s were not listening to what the States were saying. Next both Houses of Congress were replaced followed by a huge Democratic loss for President in the Electoral College!
        What makes a Country like ours work with such a wide range of personalities across so much teritoriy is how it is set up with a popular and State voice in Government. If we silence one too much it will not work. We must always work to gether and that means all of us. To do that States need to have their voice. The rural States speak for more then themselvs but the rural areas of those States with highly populated cities who’s voices are not heard very well there. It makes a strange mix but it works. It was not too long ago I found group of people in northern California who were strongly conservative and big Trump fans. That is not how their State voted so you see my stupid words do have some truth to them. I have also done lot of traveling in my life and witnessed other like out of place people.

  67. PoorPitifulPearl says

    I was appalled to learn that Jeff Flake, who purports to be a religious man, can be so narrow minded as to believe the things written about our President, Donald J. Trump. While Trump is not polished in politics, he has the heart of America in mind and has succeeded in honoring a great number of his promises, to we, the people, despite being hindered by so-called Republicans like Jeff Flake and Mike Lee from Utah. I know those men belong to the Mormon church, as do I and my family, but we’ve never believed for one minute that we are better than anyone else. We’ve all made mistakes in the past, and we’ve all had to repent. What makes them believe that a “gotcha” video produced by Billy Bush is the truth about Trump’s character? We have no idea whether Bush planned this as “OPPO RESEARCH” and edited the tape to reflect only what he wanted to come out. Of course, Trump’s remarks were foolish and not very nice, but there aren’t any hoards of women coming forward to say that he actually did any of those things to them. The one woman participant in a beauty pageant who did come forward was proved to have been lying and the subject was dropped and the media no longer refers to it. Trump actually was helping that woman retain her crown and she was upset that she had to lose weight and wanted to make him look bad. Big deal. Trump’s ex-wives have nothing bad to say about him, and all his children love and admire him. Can he really be that bad? Does he have to wear a scarlet letter on his coat for something that was said that was foolish? I’d ask both Flake and Lee to examine their own consciences and determine if they have never, ever done anything foolish or underhanded in pursuit of their positions or in their family lives, or in college, etc.

    My advice to Mike Lee, since he is not running away from his job, to consider exactly how he is hurting the Republican party and the country with his rhetoric. God often uses uncouth or unlettered people to do His will when others who SHOULD be doing something, are too afraid to take the risk. In this case, I believe that President Donald J. Trump is one good work in progress and so long as he continues to choose the right for the American people, he will succeed and make it just that much easier to “wipe the floor” with the liberals and socialists whose ideas are tantamount to totalitarian government…one size fits all. Yes, all people are created equal, but some, when they grow up, become less equal because they won’t work toward equality. They still could, if they wished, because nothing is written in stone. Unfortunately, some narrow minds are already made up because they are afraid to examine the wider picture and look into their own shortcomings.

  68. Garys_opinion says

    “In an interview with the Arizona Republic, Flake said, “Here’s the bottom line: The path that I would have to travel to get the Republican nomination is a path I’m not willing to take, and that I can’t in good conscience take”
    Meaning, I’m sure to lose.

  69. Deplorable wizard says

    The staunch conservative facade was just that a facade!. He never toe’d the party line, he simply went along to get along. He did what he was told by the RNC because he was an empty head filling an empty chair. He was one of the background boys, there just to have a head to count, an extra on the set of life. Anything that had his name on it in Congress was someone else’s and he was told they were putting his name on it because they felt sorry for him. He is one of many politicians in dc without the testicular fortitude to actually make a difference.

    He will not be missed! Mostly because he was missed in the activities department. He’s the guy that got through college and no one knew he was there.

    Mr. Flake took a courageous step to open up his real feelings, not sanctimonious, pius platitudes as many have implied, including yourself, and would have normally expected from one in Mr. Flake’s position. Sad thing about pouring out ones soul–he/she finds out how little soul others have. Vulnerability will always be met with exploitation. Mr. Flake is a man of conscience, much misunderstood by those with less conscience. His is not a holier than thou position. It is nothing more than a simple soul confession, interpreted as “Simpleton” by you pundits with clever minds. Your cleverness turned his speech into an opportunity to exploit and proclaim your own supposed “high road” attitude. Sadly you missed the possibility that you are merely stating you own version of “holier than thou”. You have exceptional mental capacities. Too bad they are dressed in the protective cloaks of feigned, objective journalism. Let it lie there. ssjackson. PS. I am a conservative, I voted for Trump and I agree with many of Flake’s objections to Trump; not all. ssj.

  72. Jesustheonlyway says

    I couldn’t even finish listening to his speech – the hypocrisy is astounding – NEVER once did he speak like this against Obama who is not only corrupt but evil in all of his ways. Never once has Flake acknowledged the corruption that runs rampant in our government! He thinks the flowery lies politicians usually speak is just fine but when President Trump comes along with words of truth that echo the American people Flake can’t handle it! Good riddance then – you Mr. Flake are nothing more than a Democrat wearing an R after your name – and just one more creature the SWAMP has coughed up! GOOD RIDDANCE!

    We need real conservatives, not these Demonrat wannabe’s who run as Republicans. The nation deserves to have their candidates properly vetted to make sure they will not lie or use their position to make themselves rich and “damn the American public” Many Demonrats have run as closet Republican fakers. Flake at least realized that by running again, he would not win, so he bowed out. I am sure that his in-box was overflowing from people like us calling him out for his antics. Bye Bye “snow”Flake.

    The masn has one option left bow out use his voting record as his Legacy, then I’m positive he would land a book deal and millions. But instead of just telling it like it is that you and president Trump might not get along well. So since both Arizona senators have made asses of themselves you have forgotten the main rule I can’t be labeled not a dem ,not a rep , or an independent Just an AMERICAN that loves his country, I am fed up with people that forget you have gone to the senate to Serve your country. I thin both you and Mccain are hurting yourselves you could have voted Trumps way on the last few votes you8 will be a part of a Tax Reform all American Small Businesses that to me the engine of this country they still have employees that have been there 20-30 yrs. Because our small businesses are like families and if either you or MCcain would ruin that it has to be because either one or both can be compromised By the Obama administration and the 5% of americans they spied on. Take your voting record ride off into the sunset and both of you land book deals after you leave with your honor of serving your country and because you don’t get along with Trump don’t let it end your career in congress on a stupid note you only have a yr to just leave on your terms instead of terms that people can attack you on, write your book make million but if you piss off anyone that would buy your book you have cut your own nose off and will pay the price stupidity!

  88. Angee says

    A Flake is always a Flake! He didn’t collect enough donations to run again. We the Arizona voters are done with his lack of representation. He probably spends more time highlighting his hair than working on the issues we need to fix in AZ. We dumped him when he and McCain were part of the “Gang of 8”
    As far as a Senator, he earned a ‘0’ He should resign ASAP instead of waiting for his loss in the polls. He should be honest enough even for one time and let people know he didn’t get enough support ($$) to campaign.

  89. Carl says

    Unfortunately, there are more ‘Flakes’ in Congress than true conservatives….Dr. Michael Savage, in his book ‘Government Zero’, states “Here in America, we have only a left wing and a far left wing. A bird needs two wings to fly. This country is going in circles because it has two left wings, flapping around the clock. A bird needs a left wing and a right wing to fly.”…..He is totally correct. I believe the GOP, including the likes of McCain, GW Bush, McConnell, Graham, Ryan etc…..are so wanting to be liked by the liberal, Jewish Democrat controlled media that they compromise their beliefs (if they ever really had them).

    Maybe Flake is afraid Trump is ruining the playhouse in Washington and he is getting out before he get caught with hand in the cookie jar like McCain and the rest who is not working with Trump. He is our President and doing a much better job than the last President Obama.

  93. Garth says

    Jeff Flake is not a flake he’s a fake. He pretends to be a good Republican but in truth he’s a republican in sheep’s clothing. His own state admits that through voters, they want him gone. Looking at the pole’s, which look bad for Flake, he couldn’t get elected again so he has decided to bash Trump. What a guy. He might be a nice guy but he’s NOT a republican. He has shown his true colors and they are NOT red.

  94. John Rountree says

    How long have we been disappointed? Throughout both Bush administrations – – – when we were the opposition – – – when we worked and won elections. The problem was not with us no it was the party. It took a Trump election to see just how duplicitous and corrupt and government-oriented they are. NEVER AGAIN!!!

  95. Garth says

    Angees post below is right on! WE NEED CHANGES IN POLITICS. We need people that love our country, not radical lefties, not freeloaders, and NO more give away programs to sanctuary cities. Why do tax payers pay for sanctuary cities who let criminals, molesters, drug dealers, illegals and who the hell knows what else are hard working American’s paying for? For one I’m sick and tired of paying the way for freeloaders. It’s getting worse every year. It’s time for people to REALLY stand up. Call your senators, call anyone and everyone in office and demand answers. No more of this “BS”, were doing our best. That’s nothing more than more BS. I’m glad I’m old but now I have a computer and a way for me to express exactly how I feel. I just feel bad for America and worry about my grandchildren. Yes, I did serve our country. Viet Nam was not pretty.

  97. PoorPitifulPearl says

    It’s very disconcerting that Sen. Flake is taking the low road (blaming Trump) in order to take his “high road” by claiming he is above Trump’s morals. (Give me a break, Flake!) He has forgotten that you don’t judge others unless you wish to be judged. As a Mormon, he should know better. Sen. Flake is obviously content in judging President Trump because he (Flake) never made an unwise comment on a video he wasn’t even aware of that could be edited to show the worst side of him. It wasn’t uncommon locker room talk and I know for sure that NFL locker rooms are even more disgusting. After all, Billy Bush is known to be a Democrat operative and was gleeful in releasing that video. The odd thing, though, is that when you make a judgment, you’re supposed to have all the facts on both sides of the story, and also have the right to judge. (Remember: “Judge not that ye be not judged; and with what judgment you judge, you will be judged.”) What Sen. Flake did was to blame our president for his own weakness…inability to win the race, and that’s probably a good thing. It’s one thing to disagree with the president and your party, it’s another to disparage them. Yes, I know that President Trump isn’t the most couth of our presidents, but he tells it like he sees it, and he has vast economic successes behind him. He does have the right to “toot his horn” since Obama got away with it at every turn. Get on Obama’s case…he’s the one running around behind and ahead of Trump at every turn, trying to poison the political waters. He should be deported back to his home country…and that’s not the United States of America. He and George Soros make a great subversive team and I’m sure they could do something about the Middle East, so long as they were living there.

  98. Thomjeff says

    What Flake, McCain, and a few others can’t quite understand is that it’s not about them, it’s about the American People. If you can’t take the heat, get the heck out of the kitchen and let someone that don’t mind getting burned once and a while, do the cooking.

  99. Andrew Cohen says

    Good ridden. Flake is a traitor to the American people. He puts illegals before his own citizens who put him in office and pay his salary. He was losing in the polls and knew he was going to get destroyed in the primaries,so he quit. Good ridden. He is exactly what his name says he is a “Flake”

  100. Frances Carlson says

    The real reason is Kelli Ward is demolishing him. I write a lot of letters or send emails to our State Representatives and Senators asking questions, and all I ever get is a form letter response from both McCain and Flake. Martha McSally writes an actual letter response that addresses my questions beautifully. McCain has changed a lot in the last 8 years. I think his loss to Obama and possibly the brain cancer he has had an effect that has made bitter first and secondly, irrational. What’s going on in government today is disgusting, and there are too many that need to go. We really need term limits. Flakey Jeff has shown his true colors and his speech speaks volumes about his character.

    The difference between Flake, Corker & McCain vs. Trump & his gang is that the former group does still have some set of moral principles while the latter group has absolutely none. Otherwise, both groups are on the same side on nearly all the issues. People expressing support for Trump & hate & disdain for Flake et al, are showing that they honor someone who is morally depraved over someone who has moral principles. I don’t at all understand how someone could feel that moral depravity is to be treasured, but everything these days seems to go opposite of what reason would say it should.

      Trump B Da Man!

  102. niknar says

    It would have shown courage for Flake to fight for his seat by making the speeches he has decrying dishonesty & divisiveness, & pressing on with a campaign to make his case that we need more honor in government (& not only by how they speak but how they act). He might have lost, but he might’ve made headway, & that would’ve been the honorable thing to do.

    Flake is actually supporting the same pro-corporate, anti-consumer, anti-environmental policies that Trump & the whole Republican Party is. Unless you care more about the prosperity & well-being of the ordinary citizen rather than just billionaires & multinational corporations, you are showing a lack of moral integrity no matter how lofty your rhetoric may be.

  103. Ruth Arzonetti says

    Jeff Flake has voted with Trump 92% of the time. If winning reelection was the most important thing, he could have easily got on the Trump Train. He has voted as a conservative in his time in the House as well as the Senate. To say he should join the Democrat party or that he is a “globalist” is sheer stupidity. Too many Trump supporters throw around language without knowing what they are talking about. They are as extreme as the Trump haters. How about using intelligence instead of pure emotion?

    1. CCblogging says

      BS, Flake is a Globalist and has admitted it.

  104. Marion E McKenzie says

    Flake is a disgrace to humanity…

  105. Glenda Hammer says

    Flake had an 18 percent approval rating in his home State of Arizona. He had to quit because there was no way he was going to get re elected. He went against Trump to save face.
    Another piece of swamp is gone.

      Glenda- thats exactly right! So he turns Leftist and gets all the news media after him! what a dork!

    Jeff Flake, in my estimation – Really is a Flake!
    His time in Washington has been impressive at some time and somewhat out of tilt at other times. Although he seemed to support controls over federal spending he also seemed to lean towards programs and efforts that put money into his efforts. His tendencies to turn toward those who financially supported his interest is not uncommon in elected officials but he made points of suggesting it was not in the best interest of national politics to do while he himself indulged. He also, was a negative source in helping fund recovery from Hurricane Katrina when the nation was trying to recover from significant disastrous weather.
    Most notable to those who have found the “open Door” acceptance of the Largest Invasion of Illegal Immigrants into our nation, is Flakes support for amnesty for the illegals and allowing them to work in this country at a time when we had over 30 million American workers out of work; at a time when three out of every four jobs was going to an immigrant, and at a point he supported Obama’s failing immigration stance when various states were attempting to develop state management laws to control the growing problems of millions of illegals flooding into their jurisdictions.
    Jeff Flake sided with Obama when the White House turned its back on the American working class, when those fortunate enough to have a job were being ignored with stagnant wages but the CEOs and upper management employees were averaging over 30% per year increases in their own wages.
    He also “sold out” our privacy when he took a huge “donation” from lobbyists which led to making it legal for companies to sell citizens “browsing histories”; today, these “browsing tactics” burden us with Pop Up advertising, random telephone calls, and millions of people being able to see what MOST OF US would prefer to keep confidential about ourselves; historically, – probably one of the nations Largest intrusions into our private lives.
    MOST IMPORTANT; Jeff Flake has been a part of our national government through the period of time our nation’s LARGEST current problems developed. He now wants to criticize the Trump Administration that inherited the nations problems when Obama left office. Flake should have been FAR more active in fighting the efforts of the Obama Administration that created and brought about these problems; instead, he found other things to work at and today – we all suffer the results of the last eight years. The years Flake should have been fighting the direction our nation was going; lack of respect for our government, lack of respect for law enforcement, a media that was obviously moving the direction our nation was going not based on what was best for the nation and the people but on what the Obama agenda was pushing.
    Jeff Flake did a lot of good in what he did – but there is little to no indication he did anything at all to stand up against the obvious ill effects of white house and congressional actions as the nation lost so much of it’s pride and respect for others the Obama administration brought about; Flake was a part of the growing problem as he did very little to nothing to show himself to be a part of the solution! . ,

    Dear Flake – STFU – Pick Up – Pack Up and leave……..and Yes I know about your connections and desire to be picked up by “K Street”…..

    His name says it all, he’s a “Flake”, he flaked out on Trump, which means he Flaked out on all of us who elected Trump.

    The funny thing is all the rinos and even dems thing this “movement” is temporary and will only last as long as trump is around. Boy are they in for a surprise next november. They never change their views to mirror their supporters or party majority but rather think everybody will and should come to their side. That sums up politicians in a nutshell. Ignorant, arrogant, elitist, out of touch, dare i say morons.

  114. grampi says

    The more Flakes name shows up on these forums the more his career is validated. Stop talking about him and he goes away. Same with all those other RINOS. FREQUENT mention of those obstructing OUR agenda is enough notoriety.

  115. hangem'high says

    Poor Washington KuntKap never knew what was in store for him? U Never know what dark secrets lies in their past, until elected. That’s when Soros and Rothschild swoops in like pimps and make them elite Whores!

    Flake is the ultimate hypocritical Flake!
    Good riddance to phonies and liars like him!

  117. Garth says

    Mr. Flakey, please just go away. Please. You have indeed showed us all your true colors. That’s just great. See ya. I’m sure the DNC will have a spot for ya. On your way out the door, do us all a big favor. How about a nice big kiss on the south end of that elegant Elephant heading north?

  118. Earl Spencer says

    Some of these politicians will say what ever is needed to get elected because of the money and benefits while in office and afterwards. IF he was a true AMERICAN POLITICIAN he would try to remain a POLITICAN and try to change things. But no, if you will not play my way I’LL TAKE MY TOYS AND QUITE. He really is a FLAKE AND I DO NOT MEAN HIS LAST NAME OR A SNOW FLAKE.
