Interesting ... Flake likes his senior McCain ... http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/293544-gop-senator-advises-republican-candidates-distanceTrump haunts McCain's reelection fightFlake advises GOP candidates: 'Distance yourself from Trump'
(R-Ariz.) is telling fellow Republicans in the Western U.S. to distance themselves from Donald Trump if they want a future in politics.
Asked how fellow Republicans could win election to statewide office in the West, Flake on Friday told The New York Times: "Distance yourself from Donald Trump." "That's difficult. But I think you've got to do it if we're concerned not just about this election but elections to come," he added.
August 29, 2016Trump’s post-election speech in PhoenixRepublican presidential nominee Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver a major address in downtown Phoenix on Wednesday, Aug. 31.
His speech, a day after the Arizona Primary Election
, is expected to be two-pronged, focusing on both “post-primary unity,” and illegal immigration policies under a Trump administration.
As a border state Arizona has long been the acknowledged major portal for smuggled people from myriad countries and illicit contraband, including drugs that make their way into our neighborhoods
...On a related note, it’s good to see Immigration Counters back online http://www.immigrationcounters.com/
. The go-to source for more reliable numbers than the stagnant 10 – 11 million we have been told are in our country illegally for the past decade. The absurd undercounts don’t reflect births or additional people stealthily crossing into the United States on a daily basis.
...Republicans and illegal aliens: A no-win proposition
August 27, 2016John McCain and Jeff Flake cited as relentless amnesty purveyors
Factoring in “both illegal immigration and legal immigration, the Republican Party is literally bringing in the very people by the millions who will ensure that there is never another conservative President
. Has there ever been another political party that has systematically and intentionally destroyed itself the way the Republican Party is doing on amnesty?”
John Hawkins, writing one of his two weekly columns for Townhall, poses that weighty question and others in his latest column, “5 Questions Pro-Amnesty Republicans Never Seem To Answer.”
We often hear the words, “It’s a must read.” This column definitely is.
Hawkins calls out John McCain as the “face of amnesty” in the Republican Party
, pointing out he only received 31% of the Hispanic vote during his failed presidential bid. There is no corollary between any Republican promoting amnesty and winning the vote that is deeply embedded with the Democrats. Arizona’s junior senator, Jeff Flake is also mentioned as an amnesty colluder. Both McCain and Flake were momentary pre-election border hardliners, only to conspire with RINOs and the most liberal senate Democrats on the Gang of Eight amnesty forgiveness legislation within nanoseconds after the ballots were counted
. Hawkins points out that “large amounts of cash” flowing into campaign coffers from the cheap labor profiteers in the business establishment is the driving force.
In 2013 Ann Coulter wrote this commentary, “Hispanicked GOP Elite: They’ll Respect Us In the Morning,” facetiously stating, “Don’t anyone tell Marco Rubio, John McCain or Jeff Flake that nearly 80 percent of Hindus voted for Obama, or who knows what they’ll come up with.”Coulter states, “I understand the interest of business lobbies in getting cheap, unskilled labor through amnesty, but why do Republican officeholders want to create up to 20 million more Democratic voters
, especially if it involves flouting the law? Are the campaign donations from the soulless rich more important than actual voters?”

...Jeff Flake’s deceit exceeded only by his arrogance
August 25, 2016The fact that Donald Trump won the GOP nomination over 16 other candidates is of no consequence to Flake
Jeff Flake, a first term U.S. Senator, who previously spent 6 terms in the U.S. House, used the banner of the Republican Party as he barely squeaked into office in 2012 by a mere 3 points. He was helped over the finish line with ample assists from the retiring Sen. Jon Kyl and the eager-to-buck GOP principles, self anointed maverick, John McCain — both of whom taught Flake the value of campaigning to the right and once elected, veering left.
These linked campaign ads show Kyl and McCain each taking their turns being tough on the border. Immediately after the ballots were counted they shepherded amnesty legislation
. As a senate candidate, taking a cue from his mentors, Flake drew the wrath of the open borders newspaper, sending the editorialist spinning into apoplectic spasms. It was energy wasted. Following the election, he joined McCain crafting the infamous amnesty-gifting Gang of Eight
. Arizona conservatives have had decades to get used to the duplicity, but somehow it still catches many off guard.
Now Jeff Flake is winging it on his own since the 6-year U.S. Senate terms are staggered and McCain is in a tight race against conservative Dr. Kelli Ward forcing him into uncharacteristic silence, as his vicious, out-of-state PACs do his dirty work against her.So Flake has decided to veer into punditdom, opining Donald Trump, the GOP’s presidential nominee, “can‘t win and shouldn’t win,” the election
. The only takeaway from that statement is that Flake will be supporting scandal-plagued leftist Hillary Clinton. SRAZ came to that conclusion in July with this post.
