    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...

    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: 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....

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    10. Although Duncan Hunter’s name is nearly synonymous with the Border Fence on the US-Mexico border (at least the part of the REAL fence that is working), he should also be known for his stances on abolishing the ‘anchor baby’ laws, beefing up the numbers of Border Patrol officers, scuttling all benefits to illegal aliens, snuffing out the notion of “sanctuary cities”, and, most importantly, standing firm on his position that illegal aliens must be deported. It is the same position he came to Congress with in 1980. It has not changed. When asked during his 2008 presidential primary run...

Though it seems too early to expend effort lobbying for the right 2012 Presidential candidates, one glance through the headlines will demonstrate that a gaggle of Republican politicians are already lining their coffers and elbowing for a place in the primary.

    1. In 2003, early in the Iraq war, a brave patriot named Lt. Col. Allen B. West acted to save the lives of the men he was commanding in Iraq, by firing his pistol next to a terrorist’s head and threatening to kill the SOB in order to get him to reveal a planned sniper attack, after other interrogation methods failed. The terrorist began singing like a bird, and the ambush was avoided. Yet the military JAGS decided to recommend Lt. Col. West for Court Martial or other “punishment” for his decisive actions.

    As Sen. John McCain readies for a potential primary challenge from the right this fall, the Arizona Republican is playing his trump card. Sarah Palin, McCain's former running mate and perhaps the most powerful brand in Republican politics, will stump for McCain in Arizona on March 26 and 27, a Palin adviser told CNN. The presence of Palin - and the considerable crowds and media attention she will draw - might give pause to J.D. Hayworth, the former Republican congressman and radio host who opposes McCain's position on illegal immigration and is mulling a Senate run of his own.

    Former Congressman Duncan L. Hunter was kind enough to interrupt his hunting and fishing vacation in Idaho once more to call in and answer a few more questions. Unfortunately, he has been mostly out in the woods and has paid scant attention to the political news of the last couple weeks.

So without further adieu: PA: Hello, Congressman Hunter. What are you up to now? DH: Well, were planning on going up...

    A day after former Baptist minister and likely presidential rival Mike Huckabee offered a withering critique of Mitt Romney's record, the former Massachusetts governor made his pitch to the same group of religious conservatives. Romney appealed to attendees at the Values Voter Summit in Washington on Saturday, using a speech that drew heavily from his address to social conservatives at the same hotel earlier this year. "Putting such a spirit-crushing, back-breaking debt burden on our children is unworthy of our national character," he said. "That is why I believe that this spending and borrowing is not just economically irresponsible, it...

    So here we were in 2007 worrying about who would take the Reagan "mantle of conservatism" forward. John McCain, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, Duncan Hunter, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul and others were already in the race to become the next GOP nominee for president. And you know what? Conservatives were freaking out! Was this really the crop we had to choose from? None of these guys, with the exception of maybe Duncan Hunter or to an extent Ron Paul, really understood what conservatism was. Then a grassroots draft campaign was initiated to bring someone into the race that really understood...

    Mitt Romney. Charlie Crist. Bobby Jindal. Mike Huckabee. We’ve heard these names as possible running mates for John McCain. However, there’s another name that should be on this list—and it’s ridiculous that his name hasn’t been offically suggested yet. Not so long ago, California Congressman Duncan Hunter was seen as the true conservative choice for the Republican nomination. Hunter had served the country with honor during his 27-year tenure in the House of Representatives, working tirelessly to advance conservative principles and remaining loyal to the Reagan vision. Unfortunately, Hunter was unable to conquer his competitors for the Republican nomination. Despite...

    Why the smart money is on Duncan Hunter OK, so you’ve got a thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket and you want to make a statement with it at the same time as getting 40X return on your “investment”, you want $40,000 for that $1000 bet, like Hillary did in her Pig Belly futures or whatever it was. You’re going to decide between putting it down on Hunter or Thompson over at Intrade because these are the 2 most conservative candidates in the race. https://www.intrade.com/ Which one do you choose?

    The Atlanta Journal and The Atlanta Constitution April 25, 1997 Moderate senators taking on stalled budget as bipartisan force Centrist Coalition plans alternative to Clinton proposal. Author: Ken Foskett WASHINGTON BUREAU Washington - The stalemate between the White House and Congress over a balanced budget deal has prompted some moderate Republicans and Democrats in the Senate to begin crafting a bipartisan budget plan. The group of senators, known as the Centrist Coalition, is headed by Sens. John Chafee (R-R.I) and John Breaux (D-La.). Sen. Max Cleland (D- Ga.), replacing former Sen. Sam Nunn, is the newest Democratic member of the...

    Lincolnton - U.S. Congressional representative and presidential candidate Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) is visiting North Carolina today to campaign for tighter border security, high-paying textile jobs coming back to America and stronger military defense. He’s planning on stopping at a hosiery mill in the Greensboro-Burlington area before going to Mooresville. Hunter said part of his campaign is based on making other countries play by the rules of fair trade. “One of the cornerstones of my campaign is bringing back high-paying manufacturing jobs to the U.S.,” said Hunter. “China is cheating, undercutting American products and sending jobs overseas.” Part of playing fair...

    As the Republican primary debates trudge on, second-tier contenders are still emerging from early campaign darkness. But while this break in the clouds gives hope to a couple of candidates -- it sets back even further those who have yet to stand out. How many more debates can Jim Gilmore, Sam Brownback and Tommy Thompson participate in before they fade-out?... ....Duncan Hunter had several moments in last night’s debate that could promote his lower-tier status sooner rather than later. His experience in foreign policy, national defense and his stance on immigration has previously been impressive but Hunter stepped up his...

    Just thought that this would be of interest to Duncan Hunter supporters. I was just watching Hannity and Colmes and Sean Hannity asked her who she supports for president. She replied "Duncan Hunter". Sean said, "But do you really think that he can win?". Ann then said that he might win if Sean Hannity would actually talk about him on his show. I'm glad that Ann called Hannity on this. He has been hyping Giuliani for the past few months while ignoring the true conservative in the race.

    NASHUA ? When Republican presidential candidate John McCain toured the state on a recent stormy weekend, he hired a plow to lead his bus full of staffers, supporters and a ?60 Minutes? news crew. When fellow hopeful Mitt Romney swept through New Hampshire in February, he was traveling with a small entourage of cars full of assistants. But when yet another GOP presidential contender, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., rolled into the parking lot of the Broad Street Country Store in Nashua on Sunday, it was in a rented Ford SUV.

    Duncan Hunter, a solidly conservative U.S. Representative from California since 1980, has a two-part answer for those who say his low name identification and lack of obvious financial wherewithal will doom his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008. First, he says he has the right "three pillars" as issues to build his campaign on: He's the most experienced in standing up for a "strategic national defense." He's the most accomplished on border security. And he is dedicated to "reversing the one-way trade street with China" as part and parcel of a national security effort toward "the restoration of...

Brady, who was shot in the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan. As mayor of New York City, Rudolph W. Giuliani became the favorite Republican of gun control advocates. He spoke in favor of a licensing system for gun owners that would require trigger locks and firearms training, and he lobbied Congress to outlaw most military-style assault weapons. He was the only Republican mayor to join a lawsuit by dozens of cities...

Jones GALLUP NEWS SERVICEPRINCETON, NJ -- With the 2008 Republican presidential field beginning to come into shape, there are still questions and apparent opportunities for a favorite "conservative" candidate to emerge. The three leading announced contenders -- Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, and Mitt Romney -- have taken stances in the past that are out of step, if not unpopular, with conservative voters, although all have taken recent steps to try to reassure conservatives. The key question is...

    March 07, 2007 Giuliani Solidifies Lead in Republican Nomination Poll Clinton still leads among Democrats by Jeffrey M. Jones   Page:   1, 2   Next GALLUP NEWS SERVICEPRINCETON, NJ -- Rudy Giuliani is cementing himself as the early front-runner for the 2008 Republican nomination, while Hillary Rodham Clinton maintains that status among Democrats. This is according to the latest USA Today/Gallup presidential nomination preference poll of rank-and-file Republicans and Democrats. Giuliani's emergence is notable because the early Republican front-runner has won that party's nomination in each election since 1972. On the other hand, it has been rare for the...

    If Duncan Hunter is a long-shot for the Republican nomination for president in 2008, he's not admitting it. Buoyed by a third-place finish -- and statistical tie for first place -- in a Spartanburg County straw poll over the weekend, Hunter brought his conservative message to about 80 people at the 1st Monday Republican Lunch Group at Aunt Chiladas Restaurant on Hilton Head Island. The California congressman outlined a platform that includes ripping up current trade policies with China, building a double wall along the Mexican border and a steadfast resolve to keep nuclear weapons out of Iranian hands. Hunter's...
