US Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA), an established Civil Air Patrol asset, has informed POLITCO that he will support Trump for the Republican nomination. This makes him one of the first members of Congress to express public support for the mouthy “John Barron” of the 1980s.
There are some things your AuxBeacon readers and Civil Air Patrol Members should know.
In 2011, Donald Trump was publicly humiliated when an appellate court upheld a New Jersey Superior Court judge’s decision dismissing his $5 billion defamation lawsuit against author Timothy L. O’Brien. O’Brien had reported in his 2005 book, TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald, that Trump’s true net worth was really only between $150 and $250 million. Trump had reportedly told O’Brien he was worth billions and, in 2005, had publicly stated such.
Trump claimed that O’Brien’s alleged underestimation of his net worth was motivated by malice and had cost him business deals and damage to his reputation.
The appellate court, however, ruled against Trump, citing the consistency of O’Brien’s three confidential sources.
In 2013, Donald Trump settled a lawsuit against him with more than one hundred prospective condo owners for an undisclosed amount.
Duncan Duane Hunter is a Republican US Congressman for California’s 50th congressional district. He was first elected in 2008. He is the son of Duncan Lee Hunter who stepped down to make way for this son.
After the September 11 attacks, Duncan D. Hunter joined the United States Marine Corps, attending OCS at Quantico and receiving his commission as a second lieutenant in March 2002. He served as a field artillery officer in the 1st Marine Division for the 2003 invasion of Iraq and completed a second tour in Fallujah in 2004, serving in Battery A, 1st Battalion, 11th Marines. During his second tour, he participated in Operation Vigilant Resolve, where he fought in battles in Fallujah.
In September 2005, Lt Hunter was honorably discharged from active duty, but then recalled to active duty and deployed to Afghanistan in 2007.
In July 2010, Congressman Hunter introduced legislation into the 111th Congress to allow tobacco products to be shipped to service members serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, but the legislation died after being referred to committee. In 2014, Hunter moved to block a plan by the military to ban sales of tobacco products on bases and ships.
Just as with Donald Trump, much of Hunter’s inflated life experience has gone to his head. His wife, Margaret Jankowski, is recognized as a manipulative gold-digging pig by many and this is all going to end very badly for members of California Wing Civil Air Patrol and citizens of the State of California in my district.
