Establishment RINO Stooge Jeff Flake (Squish – AZ) is up for re-election in 2018, so of course he’s got a new book out and is desperately trying to portray himself as a “conservative” after voting like a liberal Democrat during his term, much in the same way that fellow Arizona Senator John McCain deceives voters every six years.
Jeff Flake, whose Conservative Review Liberty Score is a solid “F,” (as is John McCain’s) is so frantic to rebrand himself as a conservative that he ripped off the book title of legendary real conservative Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater’s influential 1960 classic “Conscience of a Conservative,” which happened to be ghost-written by Brent Bozell III’s father.
Bozell, founder the Media Research Center (MRC), which includes CNS News and Newsbusters, lambasted Flake and his new book, stating that “Jeff Flake is neither a conservative nor does he have a conscience,” calling him an “impostor” and said that his father would be “appalled” by having his work bastardized by Jeff Flake:
“On behalf of my late father and my family, I am denouncing Senator Jeff Flake and his new book, dishonestly titled, ‘Conscience of a Conservative.’
Since entering the Senate in 2013, Jeff Flake has, time and again, proven he is part of the indulgent hypocrisy in Washington. While he waxes poetically about conservative principles, his Conservative Review Liberty score is an abysmal 53%, also known as: ‘F.’ In 2013, I watched first-hand as Flake refused to sign a letter pledging to defund ObamaCare, among his many betrayals to conservatism. Jeff Flake is neither a conservative nor does he have a conscience.
“As every conservative leader knows, my father, L. Brent Bozell, Jr., ghost-wrote “Conscience of a Conservative” for Barry Goldwater. While the Goldwater Institute may own the rights to the book’s title, neither the organization nor Senator Flake have the right to unjustifiably trade on my father’s work. ‘Conscience of a Conservative’ is the greatest selling polemic in history, and Senator Flake is trading on its reputation to shamelessly promote himself and disguise his own conservative deficiencies. My father would be appalled to see this fraud as the author of the so-called ‘sequel,’ which it most certainly is not.
“The media need to know, when reporting on Senator Flake and his ‘book,’ that the author is a deceiver out for personal and financial gain. I also call on my conservative brethren to denounce this impostor, who dishonorably claims to speak for conservatism, in the strongest possible terms.”
The Arizona Republic reported on Wednesday that Jeff Flake “embraces” being called a “globalist,” in his new book, a term often used as a pejorative towards those who believe in one-world government at the expense of American sovereignty, writing, “I’ll take the globalist moniker, thank you.”
