The Gold Star father who blasted Donald Trump at the Democratic convention this summer is returning to the national stage this week, firing off a letter demanding the Senate reject Sen. Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee. Khizr Khan, the Pakistan-born father of a U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war, said his son’s service was a rejection of people like Mr. Sessions, who he accused of associating with racially divisive and ‘intensely anti-Muslim” groups. Mr. Khan also said Mr. Sessions has defended proposals “that would single Muslim immigrants out for discriminatory treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs.” “My
Comments: I have never in my life loathed people as much as I do the Democrats. I just want this to stop!!
I feel bad he lost his son, but any article that doesn´t point out that he makes his living as an immigration lawyer, is a big supporter of Sharia law, isn´t really telling the full story. His profession will be negatively affected by DJT´s immigration policies that he campaigned on. There are several videos of this man touting Sharia law, how it should be the law of OUR land, and a bunch of other 7th century, non-western thinking ideas that aren´t exactly compatible with modern civilized societies. A bit disappointed the Times didn´t point any of this out.
So one muslin dies in the service of his country and that gives a free pass to every other Muslim to come to the USA and try to destroy it with it´s 7th century cult startied by a pedofile murder, Mohammed. Sorry for your loss but shame on you for using his death to push your anti American agenda. Go back to the sand hill you came from.
Gosh I hope Sessions is smart enough to recognize that Islam is evil and the sworn enemy of all free people everywhere. They have been killing and enslaving anyone that they can for 1400 years, about time that they get a bit of blowback.
I am anti Muslims that are in the mode of Mr. Khan. They will never be happy in America, and work to make us all unhappy. Do us all a favor and move to a nation where everyone is just like yourself. You deserve one another.
This is only the beginning. Dems will be dragging out ANYONE who got any traction in public opinion to try to resurrect old and dead concerns. That is dem MO, to make as much mess as they can and throw things around to see if anything sticks. The media will wail and moan and nash its teeth.
The thing to remember is that it´s ALL garbage, especially if it´s old stuff. If there had been anything to it to begin with it would have stuck around when it originally came up.
The dems and media are going to be wallowing in the mud. Their actions need to be confronted but we shouldn´t let them derail things because THAT is their true purpose and only power. Keep things moving.
What an endorsement of Sessions. Muslims should be singled out for discriminatory (to recognize a distinction; differentiate) treatment based on their religious beliefs, if those beliefs include killing or subjugating those they consider infidels. Since these are basic commandments of islam, why should we not have the right to know if its followers subscribe to it?
Being a Gold Star father does not entitle him him to speak out politically and hot be hit back. He is using his son´s death to push his political points which does not deserve any more consideration because of his loss than any other parent. All his actions show is that he lacks any character to play on his son´s death this way.
Having a decent man like Senator Sessions is just too much for the demonrats.
After the last TWO politicized jugheads refused to uphold the Rule of Law and sent in goons to stir up and agitate the Trayvon Martin tragedy into a racial issue to get Nobama re-elected, and then selling out to Hitlery so she would not implicate the regime leader for using HIS unauthorized email to her..
To quote Jack Nicholson´s Joker line "The Attorney General´s office needs an enema´!
Donald Trump could immediately set the record correct again that Obama violated the Constitution when he declared the United States Of American was no longer a Christian Nation. This gave all persona who want only our land the idea they can force their culture and laws while on us trying to destroy the foundations we certified our freedom and rights upon. The Gold star symbol is only a tool to Mr. Khan not an honor given to his son by his nation. The nation he choose for his life --not his fathers.
Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News. Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President
A Utah couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on a dream tour of Europe are among the victims of the London terror attack. Kurt Cochran, 54, died after being thrown over Westminster Bridge onto a walkway beneath it when an ISIS terrorist mowed him down in his Hyundai 4x4. His 46-year-old wife Melissa was also struck. She lay frozen on the bridge with blood pouring from her head as strangers consoled her while they waited for an ambulance. Mrs Cochran remains in hospital in the UK where she is being treated for a broken leg and rib. They were the first people hit when
Open door immigration policies put in place by the Obama administration were cited a cause for the alleged rape of a 14-year-old student inside Maryland high school by two illegals, according to the head of the Border Patrol union. Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, cited the former administration´s "catch and release" program for letting the two illegals charged in the rape into the United States. In Senate testimony, he said, "Had we done our job that 14-year-old girl would never have been raped. Period. That´s all there is to it." Two illegal immigrants have been charged
Trump presidential transition officials had their communications monitored and “unmasked” by the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday, offering the first major piece of evidence of possible illegal activity by Obama officials against Donald Trump as president-elect. Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican, said Mr. Trump’s own communications might have been monitored. All of the information appears to have been scooped up legally and incidentally, meaning the Trump officials weren’t the targets. They may have been gathered by foreign intelligence and then shared with the U.S. under existing agreements, one lawmaker said. But at some point
Congressman Peter King (R-N.Y.) called the revelation that President Trump´s transition team was identified during incidental surveillance activity "extremely significant." King said the fact that Trump´s name appeared in the reports obtained by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) was one of a few violations that were committed. Trump nor his associates were being wiretapped, King said. Instead the surveillance focused on foreign individuals who referenced them. "Any time your [American´s] name comes up, it´s supposed to be masked. Reports were written with names of these people and details," King said, adding that the information was then spread around
The race to build the world’s tallest skyscraper has reached new heights - and taken a turn in direction. Designs for ‘The Big Bend’, a slender tower that would transform Manhattan’s skyline have been unveiled. Described as the ‘longest building in the world’, the project´s concept drawings reveal a skyscraper reaching an apex then curving back down. And featuring an elevator system that can travel in curves, horizontally and in loops. In a bid to work around the challenges of New York’s zoning laws, design studio Oiio has imagined an innovative concept to straddle across Billionnaire’s Row on 57th Street.
Senator John McCain said on MSNBC tonight that there needs to be a special committee for the Russia investigation because Congress does not presently have the “credibility to handle this alone.” McCain told Greta Van Susteren that the big split today between Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff shows a “chasm” between the two leaders of the House Intelligence Committee. He added that there is no substantiation to what either of them He said what’s been happening today is somewhat “bizarre” and said that he thinks it’s time for a special committee because “no longer does the Congress have credibility to handle this
Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why? Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. (snip) It´s closing hundreds of stores. Others are in shambles, with leaking ceilings and broken escalators. In some, employees hang bedsheets to shield shoppers from sections that stand empty. Before Sears and Kmart, Lampert had no experience in retail. The big plan he hoped would transform Sears
House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts
Chelsea Clinton´s chief of staff complained on Thursday that her boss just can´t catch a break. Bari Lurie is Clinton´s chief of staff at the Clinton Foundation, where the former first daughter is vice chair. Lurie took to Twitter on Thursday to lament that Clinton, like her mother, failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, "never gets a break." (Tweet) The tweet included a link to a op-ed published Thursday in the Los Angeles Times, titled "Just like her mother, Chelsea Clinton never gets a break." The article´s author, Ann Friedman, defends Clinton from her critics, arguing that she and her
A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a
Democrats plan to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said Thursday. Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer said Gorsuch -- who is three days into his confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee -- will need 60 votes to be confirmed. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote. He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will
In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon. Many of the reporters present didn’t seem to
British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,
