  • Flake to halt judicial nominees until Mueller protection bill passed

    Sen. Jeff Flake announced Wednesday that he will not vote to advance any new judicial nominees through the Judiciary Committee, nor will he vote to confirm picks on the Senate floor, until he gets his way on unrelated legislation to prevent the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Flake made the announcement on the Senate floor minutes after his bid to pass the bill failed. His threat could block the committee from approving any more judges this year, since the GOP only holds a one-seat majority on the panel. It’s less catastrophic to approving judges on the Senate floor,...

  • Jeff Flake: Republicans must move beyond the cult of Trump’s personality

    must admit that Tuesday’s election was a bit odd for me. For the first time in nearly two decades, I spent it as a spectator rather than a participant. In ordinary times, I would have missed the push and pull, the spirited debates about the size and scope of government. I was content to sit this one out. After all the machinations, the conventional wisdom held. The House will now be under Democratic control while Republicans will maintain the majority in the Senate. We are under divided government again, the type of government that, in my opinion, usually delivers the...
  • Jeff Flake Insults Cruz & Trump, Says It’s Anti-Semitic to Criticize Soros

    Sen. Jeff Flake, the left-wing ‘Republican’, is a nasty, vengeful guy. Three days before the election, he appeared on Wolf Blitzer’s show to praise Obama, criticize Ted Cruz and the President, and he suggested criticism of George Soros is anti-Semitic. He downplayed the “threat” posed to America by illegal immigration and blasted Sen. Ted Cruz for calling out his opponent who has supported illegal immigrants. A Project Veritas undercover video appeared to show that Cruz’s opponent Robert Francis O’Rourke has been aiding illegal immigrants, possibly illegally.
  • Jeff Flake: I still don’t know if I believed Kavanaugh (or Ford)

    Sen. Jeff Flake appeared on the View today and said he wasn’t sure if he believed Dr. Christine Blasey Ford or Judge Brett Kavanaugh, an answer that didn’t sit well with most of the show’s hosts. Of course, all of the ladies on the show approved of Flake’s decision to demand an FBI investigation after he was confronted in an elevator by a couple of activists. But the conversation turned when Joy Behar asked if the FBI investigation merely gave Flake “cover” to vote for Kavanaugh. Flake pushed back a bit, noting that the Anita Hill FBI investigation only took...

    The Communist Party USA is involved in campaigning on behalf of U.S. Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat from Arizona. According to Joelle Fishman, head of the Communist Party’s powerful Political Action Commission, the party has injected itself into races “in two states where a Republican seat can be flipped: AZ (Flake open), TX (Cruz).” During her term in the Arizona state legislature, for example, Sinema was a founder of the leftist Progressive Caucus. Sinema has helped lead numerous leftist national boards, including the Center for Progressive Leadership, Progressive States Network, and the Democratic Socialists of America-affiliated Progressive Democrats of...

    Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said in a recent interview that he hopes somebody runs against President Trump in the 2020 election, and that Trump supporters' continued chants of "lock her up" — typically in reference to Hillary Clinton — are "disturbing." In his retirement interview with C-SPAN, Flake said the chants, which were sparked by Trump's campaign and have continued throughout his presidency, are more concerning than the controversial things Trump says.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is warning Republicans considering challenging President Donald Trump in 2020 that it would be “a waste of time.” The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that that it would be “very, very difficult to unseat the president in the primary.” Republicans, such as retiring Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, are considering challenging Trump in 2020. McConnell said that “would be a waste of time frankly. But the people who would be likely to challenge the president would not be coming to me for advice.”(continued)

    I accept that Murkowski will vote no on confirming Kavanaugh. As for Collins and Flake, I don't trust how they will vote on confirmation, no matter how they vote on cloture; believing them both to be snakes and willing to put Trump hatred above what is right as regards Kavanaugh himself.

    Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) said that he plans to vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court "unless something big changes," according to the Associated Press. Earlier Friday, he voted yes on advancing the nominee in a procedural vote. The comments to reporters came as Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska indicated she would be a "no" vote this weekend on the nominee, after voting "no" on the procedural vote. “I believe he is a good man,” she said of the nominee, but “in my view, he’s not the best man for the court at this time."

    Members of the national organization UltraViolet Action and local groups are holding a midday rally on Thursday rally outside Flake’s Phoenix office to support the women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. Thirty-three Arizona women who described themselves as survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence on Wednesday sent an open letter asking Flake to publicly commit to rejecting Kavanaugh’s nomination to the high court. They say if he doesn’t, he will send a “devastating message to millions of survivors that what happened to us doesn’t matter.”

    The Nebraska Republican gave an emotional speech on the Senate floor before returning to business as usual Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) gave a little performance on the Senate floor last night. As Sasse and his colleagues waited to receive the FBI’s report on its investigation into the sexual assault claims made against Brett Kavanaugh, the Republican from Nebraska took to the podium to talk about how friends of his have been raped, how the #MeToo movement is “a good thing” and how President Trump’s mockery of Christine Blasey Ford earlier this week was unacceptable. “We all know that the president...

    WASHINGTON — Two key undecided senators signaled Thursday that they are satisfied with the F.B.I.’s investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, and Senate Republican leaders were increasingly confident that he would be confirmed to the Supreme Court. Senators Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of Maine did not say that they will vote for Judge Kavanaugh, President Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee. But after a closed-door briefing in which Republicans were told that no witnesses corroborated the accounts of Judge Kavanaugh’s main accusers, both made positive remarks. A yes vote from both would secure...
