    The World is Raw ^ | Dec 19, 2010 | Rob
    Over the last couple months I have been bringing books, two sackfuls at a time to Maxwell’s House Of Books in exchange for store credit. So far, my schlepping of about 70 books has yielded a credit of $38. Yesterday I gobbled up twenty of it so I could own a copy of Duncan L. Hunter‘s new book, Victory In Iraq: How America Won. Why? Because that’s a great title and because Hunter was going to be in La Mesa, at Maxwell’s signing copies. The photo above shows Hunter signing my actual book. After he signed it we chatted for...

    AT&T | 8/25/10 | DH/AJM
    This interview is part of an ongoing 2010 series of conversations with former Congressman and conservative icon Duncan Lee Hunter. Though he is in the final days of editing his new book on the Iraq War, he has been involved in a number of campaigns for conservative congressional candidates and is still keenly interested in getting his views out to the public. With any luck, Hunter will toss his hat back in the ring for the 2012 presidency, but for now he’s trying to reinvigorate the GOP with a return to Reaganism. AJM: Today is primary day for a couple...

    AJM: Today the Judge in the California Proposition 8 court case, just now, overturned the will of the people on prop 8. DH: You have GOT to be kidding. AJM: No, I’m not, though I’m sure it will be appealed. DH: What on earth was his basis? We amended the darn constitution! First, we vote that it is only one man – one woman. Then they say, “no, the state constitution overrules you”. Then we say fine, we’ll amend the constitution! AJM: Yep. Let me see if I can find it real quick what his reasoning was. Here it is....
  • Levi Johnston to make music video debut -- riffing on Sarah Palin relationship

    Examiner ^ | 7/24/10 | Matt Carter
    Levi Johnston may be getting married to Bristol Palin sometime soon, but he is still finding a way to potentially tick off Sarah. In a new music video, Levi (according to the Associated Press) will star as a man who faces scorn from his girlfriend's mother. The song for the video in question is Brittani Senser's "After Love". So is Levi worried at all about what Sarah Palin would think about this gig? According to Us Magazine, Levi's attorney Rex Butler says that it's not really something that is on their radar: "I don't think we're going to be concerned...
  • Palin takes shot at McCain camp for not defending her (RINO FIGHT!)

    The Hill, Washington, DC ^ | 2010-07-22 | Eric Zimmermann
    Though the post-election infighting between Sarah Palin and the McCain team has largely died down, the former Alaska governor took one more shot at her former running mate’s campaign on Thursday. In an interview with the Daily Caller, Palin said Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) camp didn’t do enough to defend her record when it came under attack. “To not have had the McCain campaign staff defend my record was an insurmountable challenge, because once a bell is rung, it’s impossible to un-ring,” Palin told the website.

    American Conservative ^ | 7/2/10 | Daniel Larison
    Outside of Republicans, she’s not popular at all. According to our NBC/WSJ poll, just 29% view her favorably, compared with 43% who view her unfavorably (not far from George W. Bush’s 29%-50% score). In addition, the poll shows that 52% have problems with a candidate who has been endorsed by Palin, versus only 25% who are comfortable with that attribute. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Palin is more of a political celebrity than a political figure. ~First Read This is true, but there is nothing here about Palin that we know now that we didn’t already...

    Newsweek ^ | 6/8/10 | Alan Mascarenhas
    The 2012 presidential election may be 29 months away, but the potential players are stalking each other like chess grandmasters. Tonight's round of gubernatorial and Senate primaries could provide early indicators of who is most shrewdly mobilizing their pieces into position. Three states with big races on Tuesday represent potential game-changers in 2012. Iowa and South Carolina occupy key early positions in the presidential-primary calendar, while California boasts a mother lode of winner-take-all delegates. For presumed hopefuls like Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Mike Huckabee, the calculation is simple. Endorse a statewide candidate who wins (both tonight and in November's...

    Red County ^ | 5/25/10 | Matt Cunningham
    It's crunch time in the volatile battle for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate, as Chuck DeVore and Carly Fiorina scramble to inherit voters peeling away from Tom Campbell as they become more familiar with his record and philosophy. Every bit helps in the final stretch of a fluid race, and it's my understanding DeVore will soon be announcing former San Diego Congressman Duncan Hunter, Sr., is endorsing him for U.S. Senate. Given that Hunter made his mark as an unwavering advocate for a robust national defense, his endorsement burnishes DeVore's argument that his national security credentials are an asset...

Mr. Speaker, around the world right now American troops are being disserved by a mistake promulgated by the American and international news media to the effect that American law allows torture. That is the lie that is being propagated by electronic and written news media around the world. Mr. Speaker, we have the law here. It is title 18, section 2340A; and I want to read it.

DH: I finally got the chance to listen to his message last night he left on my phone last week. Call him and tell him I'd be more than happy to endorse him. AJM:...

Mr. HUNTER. Mr. Speaker, when Americans watched U.S. troops take Baghdad through embedded media, they saw the American GI in his true character. They saw a GI who was compassionate, who was honorable, and who had great courage. In a way they saw also the GIs of Vietnam because in many cases those were the sons and grandsons and granddaughters of people...

Mr. Chairman, in 1933, a young lady named Melba Loman was being robbed at gunpoint next to a high-rise building. During the robbery, a young man leaned out the window with a gun and shouted to the robber, drop that gun or I will shoot, at which point the robber ran off. The young man's name was Ronald Reagan, and he knew something then intuitively that we have learned now; and that...

    This interview with former Congressman and conservative stalwart Duncan Hunter is the latest in an on-going series of conversations designed as one way to place Hunter’s ideas and commentary into the public sphere. His long term goal is to restore the country to its constitutional republican roots, of limited government and maximum freedom. His short term goal is to win the November 2010 elections, inserting rock ribbed conservatives into seats currently being occupied by Democrats. With any luck, Mr. Hunter may challenge for the 2012 presidency. But for now, it’s time get a Republican majority back to congress to halt...

    This is the latest in a series of conversations with former Congressman and conservative stalwart Duncan Hunter. He has agreed to these sessions as one way to keep his message of Reaganesque foreign policy and constitutional domestic policy on the front burner for the American people and his Republican colleagues. Hunter is currently spending much time and personal capital positioning a group of conservative candidates to take back congressional seats from liberal Democrats. With any luck, Mr. Hunter will choose to run for the presidency come 2012. But for right now, the 2010 midterm election is his mission. The interview...
