Retired Green Beret general and New Hampshire Senate candidate Don Bolduc told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that Americans must unite against Iran, and politicians must stop politicizing the issue.

“This is a time we come to the table and operate as Americans,” said Bolduc, a retired U.S. Army brigadier general. He continued:

Americans need to unite and come together. We don’t need to be arguing with each other about what the president did. The president actually did something that should have been done a long time ago. [Qasem Soleimani] has been a menace and danger to stability in the Middle East and across the Levant, extending that instability to western Afghanistan, where Iran has been involved using proxies since the beginning of the war there. All the way to Africa, what they’ve done has effects in Europe, and so, we need to come together as Americans, and we need to identify Iran as an enemy.

“If we’re going to fight with each other, if we’re going to politicize this, we’re not going to get anywhere. This is an embarrassment to our country, not to be together on this and supporting our president,” he added.

Bolduc served 36 years in the military in every continent and in every major war since the first Gulf War. He was one of the first Green Berets who rode into Afghanistan on horseback to successfully topple the Taliban regime after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York City and has served in multiple high-level positions at the Pentagon.

Bolduc recommended that the U.S. not go to war against Iran but to increase pressure on them diplomatically, economically, and militarily to force them to the negotiating table.

“What we really need to do is isolate them politically, ratchet up the isolation economically. We need to increase our sanctions. We need to cyberattack them into oblivion,” he said.

He also recommended using special operations forces to disrupt Iran-controlled militia groups’ activities.

“This doesn’t require a large military response. All it requires is special operations forces going on the ground, disrupting, degrading, and neutralizing proxy forces right now because their leaders, their planners are dead, and now they are scrambling. And this is the opportunity that we need, and we need to do it now,” he said.

“We can do this without turning it into a war. That is how Iran operates anyways. Their backs are up against the wall, and they know it. We need to shove them up against the wall, not just put their backs up against the wall. We need to keep them there, pin them there until they call ‘uncle.’ And then, we bring them to the table, and we figure it out,” he said.

However, Bolduc said politicians are focused on politicizing Iran instead of helping the president.

“They’re too busy pointing fingers and trying to politicize and get reelected. And that’s wrong. This is a time we come to the table and operate as Americans,” he said.

Bolduc started his military career as a private at Fort Carson, Colorado, with the 4th Infantry Division. He then went to the 82nd Airborne Division. Afterwards, he went to college, completed the ROTC program and became an officer. His first overseas assignment was in Korea.

Since then, he’s served with the 10th, 5th, and 3rd Special Forces Groups, served in Iraq, Grenada, Afghanistan, and in various policy positions at the Army’s headquarters, the Joint Staff, and the Office of the Secretary of Defense. In Afghanistan, he helped to develop the village stability operations and Afghan Local Police programs, believed to be the only successful counterinsurgency programs in Afghanistan.

His last assignment was as commander of special operations forces for U.S. Africa Command; he retired in 2017.

Bolduc was one of the rare senior military leaders to go public with struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder, helping to destigmatize PTSD and suicide and providing an example for junior soldiers to step forward and seek help.

His campaign has recently released a campaign video in which he discusses his struggles with coming home from war as a soldier and commander who led troops into battle, sometimes with ensuing fatalities.

Bolduc said he wants to continue serving America and believes the political establishment has become ineffective.

“I am running for office in large part because of the ineffective leadership that we see in the United States today,” he said. He called the current New Hampshire senator, Jeanne Shaheen (D), “ineffective” and “establishment.”

He said that after the military, when he and his wife were working in New Hampshire on veterans’ issues, he had a difficult time getting ahold of her.

“I saw firsthand the poor constituent support in that very critical area, given the problem we have with our veterans’ medical care, transition with our service members to civilian life, the suicide rate, the homeless rate, the unemployment,” he said. “So that’s an area where she’s made a lot of promises and broken a lot of promises.”

He said she Shaheen neglected the rural areas of New Hampshire and catered to special interest groups. He also criticized her for being overly partisan and voting with the establishment 97 percent of the time. He said she is so tied with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) that she thinks she is “Massachusetts’ third senator.”

“God bless her for the service she’s given to the state. I want to thank her very much for that. It’s not that she’s a bad person. She just has lost her way. We need a change,” he said.

Bolduc said he is for smaller government, lower taxes, lower national debt, the Second Amendment, strong border security, and affordable education. He also said he can put his decades of experience in the military toward devising effective foreign policies and better care for veterans.

“I got skin in the game, and I want to work for the people of New Hampshire and work for the people of America,” he said.

Bolduc was recently endorsed by SEALPAC, the political action committee founded by Rob O’Neill, the Navy SEAL who shot and killed Osama bin Laden.

“I have fought for our country, and now I want to fight for America as their U.S. senator, and I just want people to know that. I want to work for them, and I think that’s a big distinction between myself and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.”

BOLDUC ENDORSEMENTS. Republican U.S. Senate candidate and retired Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc has picked up endorsements from a matriarchal figure in state GOP politics, as well as a well-known business leader in the state’s largest city.

He has also been endorsed by a political action committee chaired by a U.S. Navy Seals veteran.

As Bolduc continues to campaign for the seat currently held by Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, he has been endorsed by longtime GOP activist and donor Augusta Petrone of Dublin and Manchester business executive Jeremy Hitchcock.

Petrone, the widow of the late Ambassador Joseph Petrone, has been deeply involved in state Republican politics at all levels for several decades.

Hitchcock founded the cutting-edge internet infrastructure company Dyn in the early 2000s and since 2017 has been the founding executive chair of Minim, an IoT security company. He is a trustee of both the Community College System of New Hampshire and Worcester Polytechnic Institute and also owns the Bookery, a Manchester Bookstore.

SEAL PAC (Supporting and Electing American Leaders) is chaired by Robert J. O’Neill, a highly decorated combat veteran who in 2014 confirmed to The Washington Post he was the Navy Seal who fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden three years earlier.

The PAC, describing itself as supportive of conservative veterans, had formerly been affiliated with former U.S. Rep. and former Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, according to the Center for Responsive Politics’ OpenSecrets.org.

Among the Republicans SEAL PAC has endorsed are Sens. Martha McSally of Arizona and Rick Scott of Florida as well U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas.

“Don embodies servant leadership in a way that few others can claim,” O’Neill said. “He understands the issues facing members of the U.S. Armed Forces, their families, retirees and veterans. An Army Ranger combat veteran, including in Afghanistan in the days after 9/11, Gen. Bolduc's 10 tours of service in Afghanistan and his overall military service record of leadership is legendary.”

Bolduc, who was endorsed by Combat Veterans for Congress PAC earlier this month and previously by 47 New Hampshire veterans, said, “I continue to be honored and humbled by the support of those who have served our nation.” 

The endorsements come several weeks after Bolduc’s campaign hired Bryan McCormack, former executive director of the conservative Cornerstone Policy Research and Action, as political director. McCormack began in state politics in 2012 as a member of the Republican National Committee’s Victory operation. Since leaving Cornerstone in 2017, he has been involved in private business and currently coaches the Saint Anselm College hockey team.

“Gen. Bolduc is, without question, an authentic American hero,” McCormack said. “He brings a rare understanding of leadership and will truly represent the interests of all Granite Staters. He embodies the motto ‘Live Free or Die” and it’s an honor to join his incredible team.”

VETS ENDORSE BOLDUC. Republican U.S. Senate candidate and retired U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc has been endorsed by a political action committee that promotes combat veterans to run for Congress, as well as by 11 New Hampshire veterans.

Combat Veterans for Congress PAC is a self-described nonpartisan group that supports veterans running for federal office “who believe in limited government, will rein in the out-of-control spending of Congress, are committed to preserving and defending the U.S. Constitution and will support the independence and freedom of the individual as outlined in the Bill of Rights.”

“The PAC is a stand-alone organization and has no affiliation with any political party,” according to its website, although it has mostly, if not exclusively, supported Republicans, including U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and U.S. Reps. Dan Crenshaw of Texas, Duncan Hunter of California and Ryan Zinke of Montana.

"Gen. Bolduc understands the issues facing members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families,” said Capt. Joseph John of the U.S. Navy, a co-founder of the PAC. “He will ensure they are cared for both while serving their country on active duty, as reservists, and in their retirement. He has proven that already. He is a believer in the importance of free market principles and will turn back the socialist agenda that threatens the liberties and freedoms of Granite Staters.”

Bolduc on Monday was also endorsed by 11 New Hampshire veterans, who are joining the candidates’ Veterans Coalition. Bolduc launched the coalition in October with the support of 47 New Hampshire veterans.

Backing Bolduc are: Bill Denley of Sanbornville, U.S. Marine Corps; Gen. John Daily (Ret.) of Union, U.S. Army ; Phil Greazzo of Manchester, U.S. Army; James P. Jalbert of Belmont, U.S. Army; Dennis Manning of Tilton, U.S. Army; John Lyscars of Hooksett, U.S. Air Force; Joe Bazo of Madbury, U.S. Air Force; Bill North of Northfield, U.S. Army; Paul Grant of Pelham, U.S. Army; John Leslie of Deefield, U.S. Army, and Stephen LaValley of Derry, U.S. Army.

Bolduc called the endorsements “a tremendous honor and responsibility.”

Bolduc is among three Republicans who have announced candidacies for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who is seeking a third term in 2020.

"Right now, we're in a crisis of leadership in this country and it begins right in New Hampshire and it begins with Jeanne Shaheen. She is not invested in the people of New Hampshire. She is DC based."

Douglas and Stella Scamman have not been the state Legislature for nearly a decade, but they remain an influential couple in state GOP politics. And they have made an early choice for their endorsement in the 2020 U.S. Senate race.WMUR has learned that the Scammans have endorsed retired Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc for the seat currently held by Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, citing his "moral courage" and calling him the only Republican running who can unify the party.

Bolduc is among three declared candidates in the Republican primary race, along with former New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O’Brien and attorney Bryant “Corky” Messner.

Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, is also strongly considering running for the seat and has said he intends to decide before the end of the year.

“The division and toxicity we see every day in Washington threatens to erode the foundation of our nation,” the Scammans said in a joint statement shared with New Hampshire Primary Source and to be released widely soon. 

“We need leaders with moral courage who will unite our collective representation so we may begin to solve our common problems. Don Bolduc is the right person at the right time and he is the only person in this field capable of bringing our party together to defeat the incumbent,” the Scammans said.

“The Scammans represent the best of New Hampshire,” Bolduc said. “They are both leaders and public servants and it’s an absolute honor to have their support.”

The Scammans, of Stratham, have been involved in Republican politics for many years. Douglas Scamman served 13 terms in the New Hampshire House and was speaker from 1986 to 1990 and again from 2004 to 2006. Stella Scamman served in the House for three terms.

Both left the Legislature in 2010.

They have hosted countless political events – and numerous candidates for president, the U.S. Senate and other offices -- at their more than 300-acre farm in Stratham, which is also Bolduc's home town.

Among the many candidates and officials they have supported are former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, presidential hopefuls John McCain, Mitt Romney and John Kasich, as well as former U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, Gov. Chris Sununu, former Govs. John H. Sununu and Steve Merrill, and U.S. House candidates Dan Innis and Bruce Crochetiere. 

Douglas Scamman served as budget director for Merrill and also as director of administration for the state Department of Transportation. Both have been active with the University of New Hampshire.

Republican voters in New Hampshire will have an important decision to make in 2020 when selecting a viable, principled candidate to challenge Senator Shaheen on Election Day.

General Bolduc and his campaign are optimistic they can unify Trump supporters, conservatives, lapsed Republicans, libertarians, independents, and centrist Democrats. (Click here to read the full story)

Bolduc Urges Reconsideration of Troop Withdrawal From Northern Syria

MANCHESTER, NH - The sudden withdrawal of U.S. troops from Northern Syria is shortsighted and will further destabilize an already dangerous region of the world. In addition to the loss of life among the ranks of our stated allies, this move will cause lasting damage to U.S credibility in the international community and cast our country as an unreliable partner in future coalition efforts. If we abandon our allies, we must recognize that can only happen by abandoning our principles. We are better than this.
While I ultimately support the reduction of the U.S foot print in this area, it must occur only with a thoughtful and transparent strategy that considers all implications. We have successfully managed to operationally and tactically disrupt ISIS and Al-Qaeda and have degraded their capabilities, but they are not defeated. A sudden withdrawal would allow these groups to re- organize and strengthen. This is not in the interest of our national security, nor our allies in the region.

I believe the following steps must occur before withdrawal from Northern Syria:

  • We must clearly determine our national interest objective, followed by the development of a transparent policy and strategy to gain stability.

  • We must create a transition plan that includes a collective international effort of diplomacy, development, and defense. These efforts must shift from a country focus to a regional stability focus. Our efforts should include Russia.

  • The desire of Turkey to wipe out the Kurds threatens to create a humanitarian crisis and further regional instability. We must engage the international community to apply pressure on Turkey.

  • We must maintain a counter-terrorism presence to attack cells as they form. This would be small and focused.

  • It is critical to stay engaged in dialogue with Israel to ensure we understand each other’s intent.

Statement from Don Bolduc, October 10, 2019

Even while retired Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc is running for the U.S. Senate, he and his wife, Sharon, are keeping a promise made to each other long ago – to go on a honeymoon.

“My frequent and lengthy deployments to the Middle East, Afghanistan and Africa made it impossible to plan one until we retired, so two years ago we put down the deposit. Of course, at that time, who knew we’d be in a U.S. Senate race?” Bolduc wrote on Facebook.

“I’d like to think a candidacy to represent 1.3 million people would be motivated by a desire to solve the problems that Jeanne Shaheen has been incapable of addressing during her 12 years in the Senate. An embarrassing lack of quality health care for our veterans. The sky high costs of education. The crisis of addiction. The list goes on," Bolduc said.

Don Bolduc WMUR CloseUp with Adam Sexton

Don Bolduc says he doesn’t remember the blast from the 2,000-pound bomb that fell on him in Afghanistan. He does remember the loud whistle before impact: “That’s a sound you don’t forget.” He also remembers regaining consciousness a few moments later, after the explosion had tossed him two or three dozen feet. The detonation was so powerful, it blew Bolduc’s wedding ring off his finger.

Jeanne Shaheen is usually a savvy politician so by the time this piece is published, she may have already apologized for and separated herself from a stupid and insulting statement made by Chuck Schumer. If she doesn’t, we predict this incident will haunt her right through the 2020 election.

When it comes to his military career, Don Bolduc could tell plenty of stories. Stories about his time in Afghanistan leading troops on horseback in the shadow of 9/11. About his posts at U.S Africa Command and Special Operations Command-Africa. 

About his two Purple Hearts, and five Bronze Stars.

But when the brigadier general hits the campaign trail for U.S. Senate, it isn’t the heroic memories he tends to share. It’s the lessons of the military itself.

“These numbers clearly illustrate that in a short period of time, Gen. Bolduc has positioned himself as a top-tier candidate and is the strongest opportunity for Republicans to reclaim the US Senate seat held by Jeanne Shaheen,” said McElveen.

CONCORD — The high-pitched battle to win over conservative hearts and minds in a Republican primary for the U.S. Senate shifted on Tuesday with retired Brig. Gen. Don Bolduc of Stratham landing two notable names, Karen Testerman and Fred Doucette.

Read the full article here

Brig. General Bolduc announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate in June and the Washington Post labeled his Senate race as one of the top ten Senate races most likely to flip. Bolduc hopes to unseat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) in November 2020.

The New Hampshire Republican told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview in June that he hopes to serve as a “change agent” in Washington, DC, which faces a “crisis of leadership.”

Bolduc told Breitbart News exclusively that he will propose legislation that will streamline deportations of non-citizens who commit crimes.

The New Hampshire veteran’s proposal arises as Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, a 23-year-old Ukranian citizen residing in West Springfield, Massachusetts, was charged with seven counts of vehicular manslaughter homicide after he collided with a group of motorcyclists from Marine Jarheads MC, a motorcycle club that includes Marines and their spouses. Zhukovskyy has drug charges, drunk driving, and other traffic violations in his criminal record spanning across at least six states as well.

9. New Hampshire (Democrat held): It’s a testament to how narrow the Senate map is this cycle that we have Texas and New Hampshire in our top 10 list. In New Hampshire, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D) is running for her third term in a state Hillary Clinton won (albeit narrowly).

Republicans are going to make a run for Shaheen, though, and they’re excited by the entrance of retired Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc, who is running on his military record, which includes 10 tours in Afghanistan, five Bronze Star medals and two Purple Hearts. Given he’s not widely known in the state, Democrats are curious to see how much Bolduc can raise and whether he faces a primary fight.

To The Daily Sun,

Watching over 20 candidates running to be the Democrat nominee, it is hard to believe the positions that they are pushing will at any way bring this country together. I know whatever happens will be the majority of the voters that has the last say.

I am writing this on a hot day during the 4th of July weekend, thinking of my friends and neighbors in N.H., it is hard to believe the liberal press and most of those Democrats running for president or the last the president for having a big celebration and spending so much money. These are the same people that think we should have open borders, feed the illegal aliens, school them, and constantly complain of the conditions they live in. I would really like to know would these same people bring them to a place that they could be separated and live the way they say that happens.

 

I want to get it straight: billions of dollars for these people that come over our borders illegally, but no 4th of July celebration? Being a Vietnam-era veteran, I don't think they give a rat's butt about the homeless veterans or the number of veterans who commit suicide every day.

Now, my fellow citizens, is it your desire to get rid of ICE, sancutarry cities, fighting hard to keep Planned Parenthood in business?. After all the years of legal abortion, now they want to be able the baby's life after it is born and alive.

By the way our Senator Jeannie Shaheen jumped on board as soon as it happened.

It would be so easy to mention many more of their extreme positions. I ask you, is this how they are going to lead our country?

Here in New Hampshire we are lucky to have Brig. General Don Bolduc running for the U.S. Senate. Don was raised in Laconia and was the first high school senior to be on the Laconia Police Department. There are so many great things I can say about Don but I will leave that up to You by reading about Him or go a function and meet him in person. Don served 33 years in the Army, serving all over the world. Try to read his record and see how hard he worked to protect you and I.

One of the stories don told the first time I heard him was being in a 3-star general's office and the general was telling him, "you work for me" and Don's response was, "no, I work for them" (meaning the men under him). He than said, "general you give me orders and I do as ordered." How can this not impress someone? I believe if elected he would be the way serving the people of New Hampshire and our country.

"We need hope, we need leaders that are going to bring hope. I think what I learned in the military is determination, values, servant leadership, personal responsibility, and a dedication to core values by putting service before self," Bolduc said. 

By all accounts, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Don Bolduc had a pretty good announcement event last Monday.

The retired brigadier general and genuine American war hero stuck with an optimistic, upbeat view while kicking off the campaign at the Concord VFW Hall.

The ending of a campaign-sponsored YouTube video concluded with a single testimonial from someone only identified as “Scott” and “Friend.”

“If Don Bolduc takes on a task, he’s never, ever gonna quit. He is a true American hero,” Scott said.

The Granite Status confirmed Bolduc’s supporter was Scott Trendell, a former, financial adviser for Ameriprise Financial Services based in Keene.

Two years ago, the NH Bureau of Securities Regulation fined Trendell $5,000 and ordered him to pay $5,000 to cover the cost of an investigation into allegations he failed to ensure equities he sold to an investor at his former firm were suitable to the investor’s “age, risk, tolerance, investment objective and financial situation.”

Trendell did not admit any wrongdoing but entered into the settlement in August 2017 to dispense with the matter.

Under the terms of the settlement, Trendell said he was not permitted to talk about it.

Bolduc said Trendell was a longtime friend and said it’s obvious the national Democratic Party machine will try to pull out all the stops to discredit him, but the voters will reject it.

“This is the work of a negative political machine that knows it is not going to win. Mark my words, this act will lead more Republicans, Democrats, independents and veterans to take a hard look at this campaign because they are tired of the same old politics of personal destruction,” Bolduc said during a telephone interview.

“This is everything voters are sick and tired of. They want effective leadership and this is the opposite of that. What you see is the latest act of a desperate political machine that will stop at nothing to attack me and friends of mine.”

On Bolduc’s own Twitter feed in June, he’s pictured with Trendell and his high school football coach. Trendell was quarterback while Bolduc played running back at Laconia High.

After 32 years of active duty service to his country in which he received two awards for valor, five Bronze Star medals, two Purple Hearts, he has retired to help veterans.

We’re Going To Keep Blowing It In Afghanistan Until We Begin To Hold Our Senior Leaders Accountable

 

Good tactics never fix bad strategy. I have challenged our policy and strategy while on active duty, so I feel justified in continuing to explain the obvious to many who know and try to educate those that do not.  I have published several articles, appeared on both TV and radio news programs, commented in news articles, and corresponded via email with active duty and retired officers, non-commissioned officers, and senior civilians in an attempt to communicate, contribute, and explain what we are doing and what we need to do in the hope that someone in a position to make change will move forward and make it happen.
