NH needs a ‘foreigner who is not bought and paid’

Former US Army General Don Bolduc, Republican candidate for US Senate from New Hampshire, lambasted Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) in an interview with Breitbart News and said New Hampshire voters should support him because he is “a stranger who is not bought”. and paid. »


Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle opened the interview by asking Bolduc what he thought of the Senate Democrats’ latest reconciliation bill, the Cut Inflation Act of 2022.

Bolduc told Boyle, “We’ve seen this movie before, and it never ends well, and it didn’t end well.”

“And we have the Biden administration, with the full support of Senator Hassan, almost 100% of the time, voting for what? Undermining our energy independence, creating inflation, making our borders insecure, costing Granite Staters and Americans millions and billions of dollars,” Bolduc said. “It’s totally irresponsible, they are weak, irresponsible, dangerous and extremely expensive.”

Stopping excessive government spending is a priority for Bolduc, who launched the “no to spending” caucus.

He criticized Hassan for being part of the establishment that made life unbearable for most Americans.

“Maggie Hassan for the past 40 years in politics as a state senator, governor, and now five and a half miserable years for Granite Staters,” he said. “She does nothing but increase the size of government, raise taxes and is very irresponsible in her spending, despite her claims to the contrary.”

Bolduc stood out from his opponent by touting his status as an outsider candidate who is not bought and paid for by big-money organizations.

“I’m the right candidate because, first of all, I’m an underdog. I am not bought and paid for the establishment at all levels,” Bolduc said.

Bolduc also outlined the policies he plans to champion if elected to the Senate this fall.

He said:

I’m not going there to work for any particular senator, I’m not going there to work for any particular party, though I’m a Republican, I’m going to work for Granite Staters, and the American people and do the good common sense stuff, to get our economy back where it needs to be, because we’re weak, and it just takes common sense to reverse energy policies, reverse border policies.

“You need a common sense person who is a stranger, who is not bought and paid, I am not taking money from Big Pharma, Big Education, Big Med, Big Tech. And so I’m going to be an independent senator there,” Bolduc said. “And that’s how I’m going to operate, because I’m not going to make them wait in my office before I’m even sworn in.”

Bolduc spoke about his time in the military, where he served 36 years in the U.S. Army and served ten tours in Afghanistan and Africa.

Bolduc went to basic military training less than two weeks after graduating from high school and rose through the ranks “all the way to general, both in Afghanistan and in Africa.”

He said:

You know, from private to sergeant, I served in the fourth ID and in the 82nd airborne division as an enlisted soldier. I cut my teeth there from the bottom up and decided to go to university. And that was the Massachusetts National Guard’s Green to Gold program. And, you know, going from enlisted to Lieutenant Green to Gold. Gold Bar was commissioned in 1988. Within two years, I had passed the special forces selection. And I was off to the Q course.

Bolduc said the 72 soldiers he lost in service are his “why serve every day”.

While serving in the army, Bolduc told his superiors “what they needed to hear, not what they wanted to hear.”

He also talked about standing up to former President Barack Obama’s former chief of staff, Denis McDonough, when the administration changed its strategy in Afghanistan.

“And I said to him, I said, Hey, you’re changing your strategy now, and you’re never going to get Afghanistan back. And of course that’s exactly what happened as soon as Biden became president,” Bolduc said.

While talking about foreign policy, Bolduc mentioned that the recent murder of terrorist Ayman al-Zawahiri by President Joe Biden was not comparable to the “big murder” that former President Donald Trump committed when he killed the President. Iranian Qasem Soleimani.

“So this guy had a huge influence on that, but he was relatively ineffective. He’s not the big killer that the Trump administration did, you know, go after Iran like that,” Bolduc said. “Oh, you know how many times we wanted to do this? Okay, but we couldn’t do it. And then, you know, Trump comes in and says, Hey, we gotta get rid of this guy. And boom, we get rid of it.

Bolduc said the corporate media messages surrounding al-Zawahiri’s killing are “just a bunch of bureaucratic, bureaucratic propaganda by the National Security Council’s disinformation coordinator, Admiral Kirby.”
