(National Sentinel) GOP: There’s a lot to love about many Republicans currently in office. For the most part, they are a generally conservative bunch who really are trying to work with President Donald J. Trump to enact an agenda that will “make America great again.”
Flake just wrote a book (well, someone wrote it) called “Conscience of a Conservative: A Rejection of Destructive Politics and a Return to Principle,” but there are several problems with it.
For one, it’s a title of a book that had already been written, and by a real conservative. For another, well, Flake is a RINO. And true conservatives are calling him out, as The Blaze reports:
Conservative thought leaders from Media Research Center President Brent Bozell to radio host Mark Levin to Fox News’ Sean Hannity took the GOP senator to task over the title, which is also the name of the 1960 book by former Arizona Republican Sen. Barry Goldwater. Bozell, in a statement, said that “every conservative leader knows, my father L. Brent Bozell, Jr., ghost-wrote ‘Conscience of a Conservative’ for Barry Goldwater.”
“On behalf of my late father and my family, I am denouncing Sen. Flake and his new book,” Bozell tweeted. In a statement, he added, “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 needs to know when reporting on Sen. 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,” Bozell said, adding that the Conservative Review “conservative” score for Flake is 53 percent, or an “F.”
“Jeff Flake is a liberal,” Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin said on his radio show Tuesday.
Regarding the book’s title, Levin added, “I think it’s a great title. The problem is it’s already been written.
“Here we have Flake, who takes the title of the book, ‘Conscience of a Conservative,’ the cover of the book, which is not identical but very close to the original cover of ‘Conscience of a Conservative’ slaps his own meaningless, imbecilic arguments inside a book called ‘Conscience of a Conservative’ to justify his liberal sell out agenda.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity also ripped into Flake. He began by playing a clip of Flake appearing Sunday’s CBS News show, “Face the Nation,” in which he claimed “the [Republican] party has lost its way. We’ve given into nativism and protectionism.”
“Somehow, conservatism has become being mean or loud,” Flake said, taking a not-so-subtle jab at President Donald J. Trump, whom he did not support even after Trump won the party’s nomination.
“No … you’ve lost your way,” Hannity said of Flake. “Instead of trying to sell your books, maybe Senator, you should be focused on lowering Obamacare premiums,” which — in his home state of Arizona — skyrocketed 116 percent last year.
“The Never Trumpers, like Sen. Flake, they don’t seem to understand that by blocking the president’s agenda, they’re only harming, you, the American people,”
