Last Friday, despite having promised to vote in favor of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to make him a Supreme Court Justice, Sen. Jeff “Snow” Flake (R-AZ) asked that a one-week FBI investigation on the allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh be made before they hold the vote they were originally going to hold the week prior to the last.
Can’t say I’m surprised by Flake’s decision to Flake out of the vote, having talked with Democrats shortly before making this request. While Lindsey Graham seems to have turned over a new leaf (I operate under the Reagan motto of “trust, but verify” with him), Jeff Flake is being his same spineless self.
Let me tell you why an FBI investigation is entirely irrelevant in this case, particularly after Dr. Ford’s hearing.
First and foremost, it’s simply a delay tactic. Have you ever heard of an FBI investigation starting, investigating and wrapping something up in a week? I never have. The FBI investigating Dr. Ford’s allegations would definitely take longer than a week. After a week of investigating, they wouldn’t find anything substantial, so they would likely need more time to investigate, thus further delaying the vote.
It’s also a delay tactic in that the Left can definitely find another woman who wishes to be a hero to the Left and accuse Kavanaugh of something horrific. And if/when they do, then obviously, they would need the FBI to look into that, further delaying the vote.
Second, it’s not within the FBI’s jurisdiction to investigate this sort of thing. They investigate federal crimes, not local ones. So the only law enforcement agency that can investigate this is the police department of the area the party took place.
Third, the FBI has already extensively vetted Kavanaugh and not one of these stories ever came up. By the looks of things, every allegation has people there to witness and corroborate the occurrence. No one ever mentioned anything like this and I would seriously doubt everyone Kavanaugh went to school with and everyone he knew was a staunch conservative who would support him or even go as far as to lie to the FBI to protect him if they saw him do what he’s accused of.
Fourth and finally, the FBI would get no farther than the Senate Judiciary Committee has in investigating this matter. Dr. Ford does not remember the time or the place of the alleged groping. Every witness Dr. Ford brought up has either denied such party even happening or being there to witness the alleged sexual assault. Not to mention this happened well over 30 years ago, so any search would likely come up fruitless.
If you go to the FBI with the story that you were sexually assaulted, but offer no evidence at all, offer no witness that can corroborate your story and cannot offer even the basic information of the where and when of the assault, the investigation ends before it even began. There’s just not enough there to begin an investigation, let alone conduct one and complete one.
For anyone to request or demand an FBI investigation into the matter is indicative of the kind of mentality they have: delay this vote until Kavanaugh is destroyed or pulls out. No rational and logical person would believe the FBI could do much here, let alone demand they do something.
Flake’s request that the FBI investigate this matter is not sane, it’s not justice for Dr. Ford or any of the accusers. It’s his final betrayal to the United States as an outgoing Senator, given his approval numbers are so low he could not even hope to run in his own state. Ironically, it’s this kind of crap that plunged his numbers in the first place.
But my overall point is that it was always irrelevant for the FBI to investigate this, but particularly so after Thursday’s testimony from Dr. Ford. She offered no more evidence than she did in her letter to Feinstein or in the days and weeks running up to the vote. In the meantime, more and more women stepped forth to accuse him of even more unbelievable and uncorroborated crap, all of which the Left and now Flake are demanding be investigated by the FBI.
Again, with what little information Dr. Ford and the other accusers (one of which is anonymous) have given, an investigation cannot actually be made, especially for Dr. Ford’s accusation, which is at the center of this whole thing.
It especially cannot be made in the span of a single week. That’s ludicrous. The FBI and Special Counsel have spent roughly a year and a half and longer investigating Trump-Russia collusion and have found nothing substantial. And that’s still ongoing, though falling apart as it may be.
So the FBI absolutely cannot investigate anything in a single week even with more information than what they would be given. Which means this investigation is not made to find out the truth. Ford’s hearing on Thursday supposedly was about finding out the truth and nothing was learned that was not already known.
This investigation is not meant to find out the truth but to delay the vote as much as they can. I would be naïve to believe that another delay would not be called. And then another. And then another.
But even with all of this b.s. going on, I will still vote Republican in November. Not because I appreciate what the establishment Republicans are doing. I abhor it. But rather because I do not want to be in this position or in a worse position after November.
What I mean by that is that we need to flood the Senate with Republicans. Right now, we depend too much on too few people who can change their mind on a whim and side with the Left. With more Republicans in the Senate (and the House, but that’s another story), we would likely have more dependable people to vote for things that are favorable to the country and against things that are not favorable to us.
Yes, there would still be establishment people like Grassley, Collins, Murkowski, etc., but there would be more conservatives in the mix as well.
Not to mention that there’s no way I would allow the alternative to take over the country. The alternative, of course, being Democrats who will likely fully and openly embrace socialism to the level of Nazism and punish all of us who dared defy the entitled brats in the Establishment.
I’m already energized to vote Republican, but if the GOP Establishment fails to confirm Kavanaugh, I will be voting with a vengeance. But not in favor of Democrats, that’d be actual insanity. Rather, voting for Republicans who will not betray the people they are representing.
We need to drain the swamp at all levels of the government. Pronto.

One of the bigger news pieces floating around these days after the big Harvey Weinstein scandal is the fact that Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced his retirement from Congress, thus opting to not seek reelection.
In his retirement speech, Flake said that “There are times when we must risk our careers in favor of our principles. Now is such a time.” He’s essentially saying that the reason he’s retiring is because he feels as though he would be compromising his “principles” by running as a Republican under “Trump’s Republican party”. Yeah, never mind the fact that he was down by double digits to a candidate that lost to John McCain of all people in 2016. Never mind that he wasn’t going to have a career in Congress come the 2018 midterms anyway.
No, it’s compromising his “principles” that has him worried.
But why do I specifically mention the Mainstream Media in the headline? Simply because of the title of an article on CNN written by Chris Cillizza: “Jeff Flake just flew a kamikaze mission against Donald Trump.”
When was the last time you’ve heard anyone in the MSM write an article about how an opponent of Donald Trump was doomed, seemingly from the beginning? You know what a kamikaze mission is, right? Where a fighter pilot of an aircraft willingly crashes into an enemy, hoping to kill him as well as himself? Do you know why that analogy doesn’t quite work in this scenario? Because Flake’s “kamikaze” mission against Trump would be about as damaging as a fly running into your head, for Trump that is. For Flake, it’s about as damaging as a plane flying into a nuclear reactor.
No damage was made to Trump and Flake simply committed political suicide. The intriguing part, however, is that Chris seemingly took notice of the effort and likely result: Jeff’s defeat.
Perhaps what’s more intriguing is what Chris wrote at one point in his article. After noting that Steve Bannon is aiding Kelli Ward (the challenger Flake was losing by double digits to), Chris wrote: “It quickly became clear that in a fight between Trump/Bannon and Flake, the senator was going to lose – and lose badly.”
Again, when was the last time you’ve seen someone from the MSM admit that Trump would be the clear winner in a fight against an opponent? Up until the last few hours on election night, none of them were ready to report that Hillary would lose and Trump would be elected President of the United States. They wanted to believe there was no way Trump could win until reality hit them like a truck. This is quite possibly the first time we’ve seen someone from the MSM admit that Trump would come out of this fight as the clear winner.
The article later says: “This will be touted by the Trump forces as a victory. A chance to get rid of one of the burrs in the President’s saddle. A chance to further destroy the GOP establishment. And maybe it is. There’s little indication that outside of the likes of Flake, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker and McCain, Flake’s retirement – and the speech he gave announcing it – will have any significant impact on how Republican leaders in the Senate and House react to Trump’s presidency. If anything, they may look to Flake as a cautionary tale of what happens when you publicly cross Trump and his base. If so, Flake will have failed. But he will have failed trying to show his party that, in his mind, following Trump blindly down the path he is heading could lead to the end of the Republican Party as currently compromised.”
There’s a decent bit from that quote, but here are the important parts:
1. Chris recognizes that this fight against Flake was another fight against the Republican Establishment and that it’s very clearly a victory for Trump. A part of “draining the swamp”.
2. Chris recognizes that Flake’s retirement will have little to no effect on other Republicans about Trump’s presidency. He knows that, other than some Republican RINO’s, Flake’s retirement really doesn’t mean much. Flake’s voting record is very down-the-middle Republican. He’s voted conservatively sometimes, knowing something won’t get passed such as Obamacare repeal efforts and voted against his Party in other occasions such as relief efforts for Harvey victims.
3. Chris recognizes one of the effects of opposing Trump publicly: utter backlash and defeat. Now, he’s not saying Trump is unbeatable and he’s certainly not suggesting that Democrats and people in general shouldn’t oppose him. But he at least pays enough attention to see what happens when someone publicly goes against Trump, particularly someone from the Republican Party.
4. Flake is both right and wrong about one thing: the fate of the Republican Party.
What do I mean by the last point? Let’s go back to the quote: “… he will have failed trying to show his party that, in his mind, following Trump blindly down the path he is heading could lead to the end of the Republican Party as currently compromised.” Flake is wrong in that it would mean the end of the Republican Party as a political party, but he’s right in that, as currently compromised, the end of the Republican Party is nigh.
When you hear Trump say “drain the swamp”, what exactly do you think he means by that? To me, it means defeating the Washington Establishment that cares only for itself and ignores the will of We the People and giving We the People back control over our country. Part of that process includes defeating not just already-elected Establishment people, but also reforming the Party’s leadership.
The Republican Party Jeff Flake fears will cease to exist is the one that’s been promising to repeal Obamacare for 7 years and has yet to deliver on that promise, no matter how many great opportunities they have to do it. The one that, during rallies, sounds super conservative but winds up voting liberal. The one that in one moment promises to defeat Barack Obama swiftly and then does nothing to make it happen.
That Republican Party is the one we’ve had to deal with for DECADES! The Republican Party led by the Bush’s, McCain, Romney, Ryan, McConnell and the like. THAT is the Republican Party Flake fears for, THAT is the Party that faces extinction and THAT is the Party that I want to see be destroyed. The Party of Lincoln, the Party of Reagan, the Party of Trump is the one I want in Washington. The one that will actually FIGHT the evil that is the Left and not merely allow them to do as they wish because it means the media won’t get too mad at them.
In Trump's Republican Party, there is no room for Establishment RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only, in case you didn’t know). In Trump's Republican Party, we only accept those who are willing to fight the Left and their anti-American ways. We don’t accept those who would undermine the Presidential administration that wants to Make America Great Again.
To use the ever-popular phrase: “You are either with us, or against us.” There’s no middle-ground here. If you’re against Trump and what he stands for, you’re siding with the Left. No other way around it. And if you’re siding with the Left, you’re ultimately siding with evil.
“What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
