  • White House: Flake’s Speech Attacking Trump Was Not ‘Befitting of the Senate Floor’

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that Sen. Jeff Flake's (R., Ariz.) speech minutes earlier attacking President Donald Trump was "not befitting of the Senate floor."Flake announced shortly before the White House press briefing that he will not run for reelection in 2018."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," Flake told the Arizona Republic in a telephone interview. "It would require me to believe in positions I don't hold on such...

    Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said Monday that he would vote for Democrat Doug Jones over Judge Roy Moore in the Alabama special election for Senate and would support expelling Moore if he wins. “I don’t think it will get to that,” Flake said regarding expulsion. “But if it does, yes.”

    The View welcomed Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to the table on Monday. As expected, the outgoing Senator received plaudits from the anti-President Donald Trump–View panel, and a warm reception from the largely progressive-leaning studio audience in the wake of his dramatic speech bashing Trump on the Senate floor. After the hospitable greeting, Flake dropped some harsh truth — talking about the state of the Republican party, and the reason he’s not running to retain his seat. “I felt that I could not run the kind of race I would need to run to be competitive,” Flake said. “I could not...

    Oh poor Jeff Flake. Jeff Flake got bullied out of Washington by Trumpism. Flake is such a nice guy and there is no room for nice guys in the GOP any more. I am seeing all this all over social media and it is such horse crap. Jeff Flake is leaving the Senate because he is a crappy politician who built his brand as one thing, used it to get to the Senate, then betrayed that brand once there.I have covered this before, but Washington Conventional Wisdom would prefer you think this is about Jeff Flake vs. Donald Trump.

    Republican Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) was caught on a hot mic Saturday warning that the Republican Party will be "toast" if it becomes the party of President Trump and Roy Moore. At a tax-reform event in Arizona on Saturday, Flake was caught on a live microphone by ABC affiliate KNXV bashing the president in a conversation with Mesa Mayor John Giles, a friend of Flake's.

  • NeverTrumper Jeff Flake Was Foreign Lobbyist Working For Uranium Firm With Ties to Iran

    Gateway Pundit ^ | November 19, 2017 | Joshua Caplan
    Since announcing he will not seek re-election in 2018, Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is on a warpath against President Trump. While Flake is lamenting President Trump's rhetoric and nationalist, populist policies, it's important to remember the Arizona lawmaker has a checkered past as a foreign lobbyist who worked for a uranium mining firm with ties to Iran. Yahoo News reports: [Flake] came back to Washington [from Namibia] in 1990 and launched a consulting firm, Interface Public Affairs; he signed up the Rossing uranium mine, one of the new nation's economic drivers, as a client. Flake signed on as the mine's...

    As Criminal Scandals Implicating McCain Unfold, ‘Declining’ Health Has Become an Off-Broadway Production It’s uncanny how Sen. John McCain’s health declines every time the walls are closing in on the scandals he is implicated in. It’s almost like a script of a play or a canceled TV pilot. Today, as McCain’s name has surfaced in more anti-Trump scandals, he showed up to the Senate in a wheelchair. Perhaps he actually needs the chair. But ask any true conservative about it and they will surely snicker. Is McCain a faker? Who would allege he is faking brain cancer? No one is...

    Combine a hitman, a suspicious federal agent, a world-famous graphic novelist and a daredevil journalist and you get a Molotov cocktail of mishaps in Phoenix native and former truck driver Jeffrey Yochim’s pulp thriller. Collateral Crimes (West Wave Publishing, $14.99) chronicles the adventures of novelist and murder witness Jonathan Starker, who hitches a ride to a comic book convention and finds himself on the run from an ATF agent and a ruthless hitman. The story, a slow burner at the start but fast-paced enough to keep readers flipping pages – think murder, truck hijackings and pesky witnesses – grows more...

    With all due respect to Senator Jeff Flake’s recent surrender to prevailing populist political winds, and the reasonable assumption that Senator John McCain would face stiff headwinds if he was up for reelection this year, Republican Governor Doug Ducey also has big problems on the horizon as he seeks reelection in 2018. Sure, conventional wisdom could lead one to believe a Koch Brothers’ favorite with all the trappings and advantages of power (including millions of dollars in expected fundraising and independent expenditures) could not be defeated in the historically red state of Arizona. However, like the 2016 election, the 2018...

    PHOENIX - One of Bill Gates' investment firms has spent $80 million to kickstart the development of a brand-new community in the far West Valley. The large plot of land is about 45 minutes west of downtown Phoenix off I-10 near Tonopah. The proposed community, made up of close to 25,000 acres of land, is called Belmont. According to Belmont Partners, a real estate investment group based in Arizona, the goal is to turn the land into its own "smart city."

    Last Monday the Mohave County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to honor Oregon Standoff protest spokesman Robert "LaVoy" Finicum by renaming a portion of road. The two-mile stretch of Yellowstone Road will now be called LaVoy Finicum Road. Supporters of the name change said that LaVoy "had the courage to stand up for what he believed" as reported by "OregonLive" which also reported that those opposed expressed the opinion "he went about it the wrong way". Finicum was shot and killed during a "felony traffic stop" operation run by the FBI and supported by state and local police along US...

    Two senior Republican U.S. senators criticized Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday for saying that Russia may have the "right approach" on Syria and for what they called his lack of focus on Afghanistan and Pakistan. "His statements about Syria really disturb me. No, (Russian President Vladimir) Putin does not have it right when it comes to Syria," Senator Lindsey Graham said. In separate television interviews, Graham and Senator John McCain, prominent Republican foreign policy voices, took aim at Tillerson's remarks last week that Russia may have "got the right approach" and the United States the wrong approach to...

    The party’s drift in that direction began years ago, the Arizona senator said, explaining, “We could not be the party of fiscal conservatism when we were ballooning our debt. So we started to wage in the cultural wars, started arguing about flag burning. And we’ve gotten further and further down that road. Donald Trump latched on to that and put it into hyper-drive. Unfortunately, voters have gone along with him.”

    BISBEE — The dining the room at the Copper Queen Hotel is like taking a step into another era. A grand chandelier from the early 1900s hangs in the center of the long, rectangle room and an antique-style phonograph plays old jazz in the background — the effect is transporting visitors back to what the hotel used to be in the beginning of the 20th century. Steven Reed, the general manager of the Copper Queen, said hotel staff wanted to capture the essence of the early 1900s in one dining room experience and restore the art-nouveau atmosphere the Copper Queen...
