Editor’s Note: Please keep opinion pieces to 400 words.

Political Activist Lolly Hathhorn says “I don’t understand why Jeff the “Flake just doesn’t just resign effective immediately and just stay home.  Maybe he can get some sleep then and I don’t have to see his mug on the news!  When people comment about his voting with the President, take a good look and notice that his vote would not have made any difference.  We need people that will stand and support President Trump (whom I proudly support) and not swampers like Flake.  Stay home and do not take up any more of the time in the news and let someone else DO THE JOB to help our Country!  Shame on you for what you are doing!  John McCain needs to do the same.  On another note, why is Kelli Ward not qualified to be a US Senator?  She was a Senator in AZ.  Why is Jeff DeWit being so coy about whether he will run for Senator or not?  Some other “elites” in the Republican Party of AZ also do not like Dr. Ward.  WHY?  I would like for them to come out in public and say why they are against her.  I am not afraid to sign my name – why are they afraid to do the same?  Let’s get it out in the open.  As always, thank you Frosty for the opportunity to spout my views.  GOD Bless America, and may GOD bless my President, Donald J. Trump.  I stand for our Flag because lots of soldiers can’t because they never made it home.”   

LD13 PC Scott Powelson: Tinseltown is a good story about how the Left took over Hollywood, and I will contend it is how they have taken over education and much of local and national government as well. If we want to save “US" we had better start taking some of these venues back and realize this has been going on in the background for most of a hundred years. The first major change agent in schools started his conversion program in the late 1800’s, his name was Dewey and he set the agenda for education.  A major change agent, within Government, was Mandel House. He was Woodrow Wilson’s advisor and some think he was the main force in Presidential Politics during the Wilson administration. I happen to believe they are correct…Tinseltown Travelogue is a three-part series exploring Hollywood's stunning hypocrisy and institutionalized bigotry. This story, months in the making, comes on the heels of the explosive New York Times exposé of alleged sexual misconduct over decades by Tinseltown's most celebrated producer, Harvey Weinstein, and further unmasks an industry in the midst of an ethical unraveling. Instead of confronting Hollywood's biggest "open secret" of systemic moral decay, Tinseltown's elite have chosen to exhibit disdain for everyday Americans through brutal mockery and relentless attacks on their beliefs. Wrapped in scandal and historic box office lows, something brand new is happening to Hollywood…it appears Americans have had enough. This is a Tinseltown intervention.Activist Joe Hobbs: Thanks so much Frosty for all that you do for US, all of US.

Former MCRC Chairman Rob Haney and a longtime foe of Flake and McCain: “I cannot imagine that Sen. Flake decided to withdraw of his own volition. I believe it is more likely the establishment powerbrokers helped Flake read the political tea leaves. They would have sadly informed Flake that he had cooked his own goose with his Trump-bashing, and that they needed a less tarnished representative to carry the McCain flag against Kelli Ward in the primary. State Treasurer Jeff DeWit has strong ties to Trump and so would be a less likely candidate to represent the liberal McCain faction. And former (Arizona) GOP Chairman Robert Graham is so widely recognized as an over-the-top McCain operative that he has become a pariah to the Republican base, although DeWit backed him strongly for RNC chairman, which in turn gives me a concern about a DeWit candidacy. Jay Heiler is being pushed by former Gov. Jan Brewer, an unabashed McCain supporter. Heiler has worked in the establishment bureaucracy for decades and would be a strong McCain representative if he had better name recognition. If the GOP elites can’t find a better sacrificial lamb for Ward, they just might settle on announced far-left Democrat U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema as their default candidate to defeat Ward.When Flake’s re-election weakness became apparent, Sinema announced she was running for the Democratic nomination for his seat. It would not be the first time they preferred a liberal Democrat over a true conservative. In 2002, they formed a PAC called Republicans for Janet to elect their pro-abortion, liberal Democrat choice for governor (Janet Napolitano) over pro-life conservative U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon.” See full story at Flake’s Sudden Exit . . . Another Sign That Elite’s Duplicity Gives Voters A Weapon

La Paz County Chairman Russell Sias: It is my opinion that those that might come on board now that Kelli Ward has spent considerable effort to demonstrating that Jeff Flake is toast - by his own admission no less, are simply those that would take advantage of her efforts to this point. A true Republican would recognize Kelli’s efforts, get behind her and follow her lead, not try to take personal advantage of her efforts by creating opposition to her campaign accomplishments. They would honor her effort and support her lead by supporting her and her campaign. They could have led out as she has done. But, they didn’t. Now it is, because she had the courage to take on this fight, Kelli’s fight. NOT anyone else’s. All they can do is get in her way. This is disgraceful and part of the reason that conservatives wind up eating their own. It is disgusting that we cannot figure out that we need to pull together once in a while. To all those now considering running against Kelli, don’t. Instead, join her efforts. She is the one that stepped up, and took on the challenge, you didn’t. So, support her! Once again, these self-serving RiNO's (if they mess up Kelli’s campaign efforts by opposing her and allow the Muslim to get into office BECAUSE they have once again, split the conservative vote), should stop calling themselves Republicans, instead call themselves self-serving thugs, willing to take any advantage of the efforts of another for their own benefit. At a very real cost to our country, no less.Let’s just stop this insanity and pull together for a change! If we can do this for once, we can win. If we cannot pull together, we won’t win.

Activist Michael P Ward : "Martha McSally, Jeff DeWitt, Dave Schweikert, Paul Gosar, Matt Salmon, Doug Ducey, Joe Arpaio, Trent Franks, Robert Graham – all these Arizona politicos have in common is that they are a sampling of the names being thrown around to run for Senator Jeff Flake’s seat in 2018, now that Senator Flake has decided he won’t seek re-election, preferring not to get his hide tanned by Kelli Ward. But what do all of these politicos also have in common besides being tapped by insider Establishment Republicans? They all, despite how much some of them profess their love and devotion to President Trump, didn’t have the stones to run against Jeff Flake and will have made the “brave” decision to run for Senate only after Flake decided he wasn’t going to run." Editor’s Note: Michael is Kelli’s husband. - ft
