Rep Hunter Trying To Protect Homophobes In The Military


‘Eff democracy’ seems to be the latest motto out of the Republican Party. It should not be surprising that the GOP is busy doing what they can in order to try and cling to their anti-gay base for as long as possible. Republican Representative Duncan Hunter of California is one of the sore losers in the GOP who is still upset that Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is done. What is more, he is continuing to cling to this notion that his fellow bigots are going to run away from the military. Hunter wants to add yet another obstruction to the repeal of DADT. This time, the amendment ...


Hunter: Ronald Reagan ‘Would Never Be Elected Today’


Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr. (R-CA) spoke recently to the Eagle Forum of San Diego, a right-wing group tied to Phyllis Schlafly’s anti-feminist organization. Hunter — who has previously touted his nationalistic bonafides with talk about how bike paths are unconstitutional — focused his remarks on the 2012 presidential election. Hunter said that conservatives should line up behind any electable Republican candidate because policy would still be driven by Congress, which he assumed would stay in the hands of the right. Notably, Hunter said Ronald Reagan was too moderate and could ...


Rep. Duncan Hunter's Education Bill Would Cut 43 Programs


If California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter has his way, 43 federal education programs will be slashed. Duncan introduced a bill Friday -- the Setting New Priorities in Education Spending Act -- that would cut what he calls "wasteful" education programs. The bill is the latest in a stream of federal education bills involved in broader legislation related to the re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, a 1965 law that funds public education. Plans for the bill were first reported by Education Week's Politics K-12 blog, which notes that the bill aims to cut more than ...

A Record of Success
For Congress, there’s a lot on the agenda—budgets, authorizations and program reforms.  Most of these issues are the focus of national attention, inciting news reports and headlines and prompting editorialized commentary.  These issues are a constant in the political arena and regularly discussed in our communities, and with a national election months away, there’s added enthusiasm and interest among voters.  Such excitement is great for American politics. Amid the back and forth, I also have directed attention and energy to other causes that don’t always attract the national spotlight—but have deep significance in many ways.  Throughout my career in Congress, I have taken what have been traditionally identified as personnel cases within the armed forces and exposed the broader policy implications unique to each situation, all while striving to achieve resolution for the individuals involved.

Hunter: Jones Act a lifeline for Puerto Rico and even bigger booster for U.S. national security
The Jones Act—which requires that U.S. built and crewed shipping vessels move goods between U.S. ports--has always been a target for Wall Street and corporatists.  No surprise there.  What does come as a surprise, however, is how quick some conservatives are to side with corporate interests in the assault on the Jones Act, ignoring its contribution to the economy and U.S. security.  All of it in the name of profits.    This week’s op-ed entitled “Are Jones Act ships really 'made in the USA'? Well, sort of” unfairly misconstrues the essential benefits of the Jones Act.  The author would have one believe that the U.S. Shipbuilding industry maintains very little capacity to build ships on its own and that there is no benefit in the Jones Act and the maritime industry it supports.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  It’s true that certain naval parts are acquired from abroad, but what the author fails to mention is the heavy-industrial infrastructure and signifi

Hunter: A guiding principle for Homeland Security
For nearly a century, the Jones Act has been a reliable safeguard against American and global corporatists wanting to make higher profits at the expense of U.S. national security and jobs. Thanks to the Jones Act, shipping vessels that operate in U.S. waters must be American crewed, American owned and American built. All of this makes perfect sense, except to Wall Street and businesses that only account for their own self-interests — and they're trying to fool everyone into thinking the Jones Act is antiquated and onerous. Some in Congress are following their lead, citing the same worn-out and less than compelling argument that the Jones Act is a relic of the past. How wrong they are. Their latest endeavor involves infringing on the Jones Act through legislation addressing the Puerto Rico debt crisis, even though Puerto Rico has benefited from Jones Act protections over time. With or without such an effort, it's imperative not to conflate the unrelated issues of Puerto Rico's debt an
