Orrin Hatch afflicted with McCain contagion

(Before It's News)

U.S. Senate seats grasped by gnarled fingers

America’s founders envisioned a citizen legislature in which senators and representatives would serve their country for a short time and return to private life. Here in Arizona we’ve witnessed the obsessive lust for power that has rendered octogenarian John McCain unable to gracefully retire. Equally as troubling are his political enablers who fall prey to lobbyist financed campaign deceit and reelect him.

Now Utah’s Deseret News confirms that 83-year-old Sen. Orrin Hatch — certain that no one else is up to the task —  is planning to run for an eighth 6-year senate term. You do the math.

During the 2012 election Hatch vowed that his current term would be his last. But unable to relinquish power, he’s changed his mind. “I’m planning on running right now,” Hatch told CNN. “That’s what my current plans are.” Hatch has been quoted as saying, ”I’m tough and strong and I have the usual infirmities that anybody my age has, but nothing stops me. I don’t think I’m ready to give up the ghost yet.”

It’s chilling to realize that Hatch, the most senior Republican senator, is third in the line of succession after the Vice President and Speaker of the House to the President of the United States in his role as Senate President Pro Tempore.

Octogenarian-senator-in-training Jeff Flake also pledged to term-limit himself to three two-year terms during his first Congressional campaign in 2000, but later smirked while admitting, “I lied.” He stayed in the House until Sen. Jon Kyl retired in 2012, and then barely squeaked into the senate by 3 points. He’s running for a second six-year term in 2018.

A staunchly pro-amnesty McCain lackey Flake is known for saying “the beauty of six-year senate terms” is that the voters have short memories.  

Jeff Flake has been in Washington, D.C. so long he’s forgotten the symbol of the Republican Party is the elephant — noted for it’s long memory. 

Flake, an unwavering Trump antagonist, is being challenged by conservative Dr. Kelli Ward. She needs our help to counter the perks of incumbency. Get on-board. It’s time to stop enabling Republicrats and their decades-long terms.

In 2015, Channel 3 reported Jeff Flake was the most unpopular Senator in the nation. Arizonans deserve better.
