90 Miles From Tyranny : JEFF FLAKE, TRAITOR

“Traitor” is normally considered a harsh word, but it is the only printable thing I have called “Republican” Senator Jeff Flake since he announced, a few hours ago, that he is “not comfortable voting yes” on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. His concern is the ridiculously stale allegation by Democrat professor Christine Ford that Kavanaugh groped her and tried to kiss her at a party when they were both high school students more than 30 years ago.

Kavanaugh unequivocally denies Ford’s allegation, and the only witness to the event (per Ford), Mark Judge, says “It’s just absolutely nuts.

He lay on top of me!–that has never been heard before, can derail the nomination of a man who by all accounts, including those of political adversaries, is of the most sterling possible character, is ridiculous.

Despite the feebleness of Ford’s complaint, it is easy to understand why the Democrats are clinging to it like a life raft. But what could possibly prompt Jeff Flake, who ran for office and was elected as a Republican, to join in their attempt to block one of the most superbly qualified jurists ever appointed to the Court? There is only one answer: his insane hatred for President Trump.

Flake is a never-Trumper. Like a number of others for whom I once had considerable respect, Flake has elevated his hatred for our president over every principle of...Read More HERE

Flake is merely one of the MANY Koch-sucking Rove Republican swill. They would rather lose both the House and the Senate than take a chance on President Trump continuing to clean out the Augean stables in the District of Corruption.

If they succeed, pig hunting season is open.


What was it Jack Kennedy said (who could NEVER win a "D" primary, let alone an election, today): When peaceful change becomes impossible, violent revolution becomes necessary.

We've used the soap box, and the Left is shutting that down. We've used the ballot box, and the Left / Deep state is working to undermine that. We've had the jury box systematically ruled out. That leaves the cartridge box.

FYI, my take on the Kavanaugh accuser (Mike, could you possibly republish?):
