James Kimber admits to having worn a Navy SEAL Trident when it was unearned

(Oct. 27, 2014) — James Kimber, a Democrat candidate running for Congress, has been found guilty of a “Stolen Valor” offense; for impersonating a US Navy SEAL; Kimber is running against an endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter, Capt-USMCR (R-CA-50) http://www.hunterforcongress.com.  Kimber wore a Navy SEAL Trident device on his US Navy enlisted uniform signifying he qualified as a US Navy SEAL and misrepresented that he went through and successfully completed a very rugged six-month qualification regimen.  The details of Kimber’s dishonorable misrepresentation are explained in the below-listed article.

Navy SEALs complained about Kimber’s dishonest representation and told him to stop wearing the Navy SEAL Trident on his uniform, but Kimber ignored their request for one year.  It took the Commanding Officer of Kimber’s ship, the USS Reid, to dress Kimber down before an assembly of the entire crew to get his attention.  Until the Captain gave Kimber a direct order to remove the Navy SEAL Trident device from his uniform and stop impersonating a US Navy SEAL, Kimber refused to remove the Trident device from his uniform.

Kimber should be rejected by voters in the 50th Congressional District for the dishonorable act of “Stolen Valor;” he is someone who could easily become another one of the many dishonorable politicians in Congress we often read about.  We honor any Veteran who served his country in the US Armed Forces, but we are very rough on members in the US military who violate a sacred trust and misrepresent the fact that they qualified for a Warfare Designation they are not qualified for or did not earn the medals that they are wearing on their uniforms.  For that reason we have our doubts that Kimber could be trusted not to lie again, especially if misleading the American people and his constituents on vital issues would be in his best interest to be untruthful or misleading in his press releases.

The American people do not need to elect another politician to Congress whose word would be suspect, someone who might misrepresent facts and support the multiple lies being told to them about so many Obama administration scandals by the occupant in the Oval Office.  It has been very difficult to keep track of the many intentionally misleading statements and bold-faced lies emanating from the White House, Obama administration Cabinet officials, and elected members of Congress, which continue unabated because for six years, the left-of-center liberal media establishment has failed to fulfill the responsibility it was tasked with and given a unique special status by the Founding Fathers in order for them to conduct honest investigative journalism to keep all government officials honest.  The left-leaning press continues to be dishonest in its flagrant failure to conduct honest investigative journalism; they continue to cover up one Obama administration scandal after another.

Californians and San Diegans should ask themselves why the Democratic Party would endorse someone who is guilty of “Stolen Valor,” and whose veracity would be suspect in the future, as the standard-bearer to run for Congress in the 50th Congressional District.  On November 4th, we encourage all voters in the 50th Congressional District to reelect Congressman Duncan D. Hunter to Congress, and voters in 20 states to elect the other 30 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed in the attachment.  The 31 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress will tell the American voters the truth on issues of vital importance to the Republic.

  1. Maybe the Captain should have had a SEAL remove it from his uniform. This guy sounds like he needs a psyc-eval and looks like a real loser. Just what we need-more self appointed genius losers in DC that take credit for others efforts or work.
