    The San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | August 28, 2017 | Joshua Stewart
    Rep. Duncan Hunter, one of Donald Trump’s first allies in Congress, described the president in profane terms to a group of Republicans on Friday, but also touted the president as their champion. “He’s just like he is on TV,” Hunter, R-Alpine, told the group. “He’s an a--h---, but he’s our a--h---.” Hunter’s salty assessment was recounted by four people who were present when the congressman spoke at a Riverside County Young Republicans meeting in a Murrieta sports bar. Three spoke on the record with attribution, while one source spoke on the condition of anonymity. Others who were there made posts...

The committee said it first received a referral on Hunter from the Office of Congressional Ethics last August. The committee voted unanimously on Wednesday to defer the matter after being asked to do so by the Justice Department.

    Democratic Missouri Rep. Lacy Clay wants to file a theft charge with Capitol Hill Police against Republican California Rep. Duncan Hunter for removing a painting in the capitol that depicts police officers as pigs. Clay told reporters Monday night that police spoke to his chief of staff earlier in the day and have not been helpful to the congressman in his quest to file charges against Hunter.

    An Afghan national with ties to the Taliban — and a plot to carry out a terror attack somewhere in North America — was caught last fall after being smuggled into the U.S. from Mexico, an incident sure to further inflame the debate over national security risks at the border. The Afghan national’s alleged terror ties were not initially flagged in a terror database – and as a result, not initially reported – when the incident first came to light last November, according to Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., who obtained Homeland Security documents on the incident. It was only later...

Mac Thornberry (R-TX) among others to endorse Trump so they can start advising him on critical matters of national defense. “Specifically, the defense guys,” Hunter,...

    The United States of America is in mortal jeopardy and most Americans, tucked away in their beds tonight don’t even understand why or who is responsible for their peril. Those responsible are not from North Korea, China, Iran, Russia or ISIS. They are Department of Defense bureaucrats, members of Congress and senior leaders in the US military. The US military is committing suicide. We are in the first stages of beginning a process that is going to decimate the speed, lethality and combat power of the Marines and the US Army combat arms and special operations. The US military is...

Hunter cited July 2012 Congressional Research Service report to Congress that showed that destroyers...

Now a hero to pro-defense and social conservatives, Sgt. Martland and his supervising officer roughed up an Afghan police officer immediately after they learned he was accused of raping a boy....
