Skip to comments.Jeff Snowflake Takes Elevator, Gives Trump and Kavanaugh The Shaft

Perhaps the greatest accomplishment of President Trump has been to expose the deep state swamp creatures behind the curtain who have been pulling the levers of power for decades and have in the past two years or so have been trying to pull the rug out from under the Trump administration. Witness the Kavanaugh inquisition, which could have been made more farcical only if Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had been the agents assigned to do the umpteenth FBI background check of Judge Kavanaugh.
At least the like of Maize Hirano, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris et all have the honesty to put a D next to their name. Whether that D stands for Democrat, demagogue, demented or merely delusional is up to the reader. Not so honest has been the likes of RINO poster child Sen. Jeff Flake, who found he couldnt be elected the proverbial dog catcher in his home state of Arizona, and decided to leave the Senate, but not before he had his Benedict Arnold moment in a Senate elevator.
Jeff Flake has not exactly been Mr. Smith goes to Washington, but rather been a profile in porridge who cannot claim to be risking his political career, because he has none. It evaporated the moment Arizona voters realized Jeff Flake is a political chameleon with no backbone and no color palate. He is quite simply a grandstanding political coward whose true nature has been revealed by the Trump revolution and the Kavanaugh nomination. As GOP legend and Reagan guru Ed Rollins observes:
Earlier in the day on Friday Senator Jeff Flake announced he would vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh out of the Judiciary Committee.That is being charitable. Unless resurrected as the south end of a northbound independent presidential ticket, Flake is political road kill who managed to give Americans the shaft after his elevator confrontation, following up us perfidy with a romp with honest Democrat Chis Coons at something called the Global Citizens Festival:
Then he got cornered in an elevator by a screaming leftist for 4 minutes.
About an hour later and after several private talks with Democrats Jeff Flake came out and announced he would only vote for Brett Kavanaugh if an investigation continued on the man for another week.
This is exactly what Democrats were hoping for.
Longtime GOP consultant Ed Rollins commented on Flakes cowardice.
Lou Dobbs: They were intimidating Jeff Flake. They got him in a small room outside the hearing room and they were all piled in there.
Ed Rollins: He will go down as one of the great turncoats and cowards in the political history of the US Senate based on this thing.
Smiling from ear to duplicitous ear, Sen. Jeff Flake (fake Republican-Ariz.) took the stage in front of a roaring crowd of #GlobalCitizens at a rock festival on Saturday. Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), the chap who seems to have talked Flake into betraying his constituents and party leaders, was alongside him in a bipartisan show of support for the big fat wrench in the form of a "one-week" delay in the confirmation process for Judge Kavanaugh .Count the appropriately named Jeff Flake among them and his departure from the Senate cant come soon enough. One wonders what possessed Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley to permit this charade allowing Lucy to hold the football for Charlie Brown one more time or why Lindsey Graham, who grew a spine long enough to make an impassioned condemnation of this modern day equivalent of the Salem witch trial is suddenly fine with Flakes switcheroo. No wonder the Democrats were seen laughing, exchanging high fives, and giving a bevy of thumbs up. Its not over until the fat lady is offered another donut by goofy Republicans.
You would think that in this very serious time, where Flake himself worried that America is tearing itself apart over the "intergalactic freakshow" the Senate process has become, he would be more reserved and serious about the decision he made to drag it out even longer and put half of the country he is supposed to be representing on high blood pressure meds. You would think he would have the good sense to be photographed with Mitch McConnell, looking deeply concerned. But no. Instead, we get this: He thinks he's a flippin' rock star!
"You can join me in an elevator anytime!" a beaming Flake shouts to a crowd of screaming twenty-year-olds whose brains haven't fully developed yet and who probably think he's one of the dads on Full House. The audience he's trying to impress is full of the socialist-cheering young people hanging on every word of the likes of Janet Jackson, John Legend, Robert De Niro, and Disney stars I can't name. Every single one of them is a far-left kook.

His decision is based on “Who cries the best”?!?!?!
Pathetic steaming pile of garbage. Zero ethics or morals.
The greatest achievement of Trump presidency is re-structuring of foreign trade deals. It is already bringing manufacturing jobs back to United States. And a side benefit is less dependence on foreign countries for security related items.
Manufacturing is #1 wealth creator in any country. Retail, sports, health services, accounting, Musicians, Hollywood, etc are wealth consumers.
Only 4 things create wealth: Manufacturing, mining (includes oil & gas), Farming and applied research & engineering (create products which have demand in the marketplace). All other activities exist because there is wealth to pay for them.
And in the end we get another rock solid Thomas and the demonic baby killers have to go back underground.
