(National Sentinel)Â 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,Â someoneÂ wrote it) called “Conscience of a Conservative:Â 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 aÂ RINO. And true conservatives are calling him out, asÂ The BlazeÂ reports:
Conservative thought leaders from Media Research Center President Brent Bozell to radio host Mark Levin to Fox Newsâ€™ 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 â€œevery conservative leader knows, my father L. Brent Bozell, Jr., ghost-wrote â€˜Conscience of a Conservativeâ€™ for Barry Goldwater.â€
â€œOn behalf of my late father and my family, I am denouncing Sen. Flake and his new book,â€ Bozell tweeted. In a statement, he added, â€œMy father would be appalled to see this fraud as the author of the so-called sequel, which it most certainly is not.â€

â€œThe media needs to know when reporting on Sen. Flake and his â€˜book,â€™ 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,â€ Bozell said, adding that the Conservative Review “conservative” score for Flake is 53 percent, or an “F.”
â€œJeff Flake is a liberal,â€ Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin said on his radio show Tuesday.
Regarding the book’s title, Levin added, â€œI think itâ€™s a great title. The problem is itâ€™s already been written.
â€œHere we have Flake, who takes the title of the book, â€˜Conscience of a Conservative,â€™ the cover of the book, which is not identical but very close to the original cover of â€˜Conscience of a Conservativeâ€™ slaps his own meaningless, imbecilic arguments inside a book called â€˜Conscience of a Conservativeâ€™ to justify his liberal sell out agenda.â€
Fox News host Sean Hannity also ripped into Flake. He began by playing a clip of Flake appearing Sunday’sÂ CBS News show, “Face the Nation,” in which he claimed â€œthe [Republican] party has lost its way. Weâ€™ve given into nativism and protectionism.â€
â€œSomehow, conservatism has become being mean or loud,â€ 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.
â€œNo â€¦ youâ€™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.
â€œThe Never Trumpers, like Sen. Flake, they donâ€™t seem to understand that by blocking the presidentâ€™s agenda, theyâ€™re only harming, you, the American people,â€
