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.
The federal judge who ruled against President Trump’s effort to withhold money from so-called sanctuary cities had no business presiding over the case. The appearance of partiality should have been enough for Judge William Orrick to disqualify himself. His established record of political and personal bias demanded recusal. I’m betting he didn’t even consider it. Orrick came into the case with glaring conflicts of interest. First, he was an accomplished “bundler” for Barack Obama, raising over $200,000 and personally donating more than $30,000. Later, he was rewarded with a federal judgeship. So, his political favoritism is more conspicuous than it
In the past week, vandals have repeatedly defaced property at the prestigious University of Texas-Austin, spray-painting a hammer and sickle symbol and words like “rapist,” “racist” and “kill frat boys” on at least four fraternity houses. Last Friday, the vandals published an anonymous manifesto on It’s Going Down, a website that describes itself as “a media platform for revolutionary anarchist, anti-fascist, and autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements.” In it, the vandals urge students to join them in terrorizing fraternities. The self-professed “Vandals of UT” say they are responding to no specific incident but “the everyday crisis that is rape culture,
Katie wrote yesterday about Bill Nye´s rather, um, abrupt departure from his "The Science Guy" persona from the 90s. Nye, the star of a new Netflix show called "Bill Nye Saves The World," also has some rather interesting thoughts on human population. Namely, he mused over the idea that people in the developed world should be "penalized" for having "extra kids" who will then potentially contribute to climate change. Nye dedicated the 13th and final episode of the first season of Bill Nye Saves The World to discussing overpopulation and how the world´s population has grown rapidly since he was
Rep. Michele Hoitenga (R) said that the story of a Detroit-area doctor being charged with genital mutilation of young girls motivated her to sponsor a proposal that would ban the use of foreign countries’ laws in Michigan courtrooms. Although House Bill 4499 does not mention it by name, Hoitenga also wrote in an email to her colleagues that Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, who faces federal charges of genital mutilation, was “practicing a fundamental version of Sharia Law.” Democrats and civil rights activists didn’t wait to pounce on the legislation that Hoitenga offered April 17. Rep. Abdullah Hammoud (D) immediately accused the
Founder of the TMZ celebrity gossip and news website Harvey Levin blasted the media during a speaking engagement at the National Association of Broadcasters´ annual conference on Monday for criticizing his meeting with President Donald Trump last month. (Snip) Levin said he went to the White House to discuss a project and other issues, but then pointed out the "bullying in traditional media." "When you pretend like you are objective, but you´re not, and you are angry and you are trying to kill and bully, I think that is killing and I don´t think they know it yet, but I
The Senate took part in a rare White House briefing on Wednesday to hear what senior leaders described as "an urgent national security threat" posed by North Korea´s nuclear and missile programs. (Snip) New steps by the administration will include the imposition of additional economic sanctions. "The United States seeks stability and the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. We remain open to negotiations towards that goal. However, we remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies," Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Director of Intelligence Dan Coats said in a joint statement after the briefing.
Despite regularly ridiculing the United Nations and repeatedly proposing a scaled-back U.S. role in it, President Donald Trump struck a very different tone this week, calling for empowering the controversial UN dictators club to somehow “solve” the North Korea issue, Syria, and other problems. Speaking at a meeting of UN Security Council diplomats convened at the White House on Monday, Trump demanded that the UN be ready to impose new sanctions if Communist Chinese-backed North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un does not cooperate. Ironically, the dictatorship in Beijing — North Korea´s strongest ally — holds a veto-wielding seat on the
President Barack Obama considered being homosexual as a young man, according to a forthcoming biography of the president. The biography by David Garrow, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” is set to come out on May 9. Garrow wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post.

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,
It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the
The “Antifa” far left Communist group has managed to get an entire parade and carnival canceled in Portland because the Multnomah County Republicans were going to be in the parade. (Photo) The communists threatened to riot, loot, assault people at the parade. The festival people decided to cancel the entire weekend of activities, which was going to be this weekend due to the threats of violence by the leftist group. The Antifa group promised to rush the parade and drag away the Republicans. “We will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag
A vicious brawl, involving more than 50 teenage boys and girls, erupted at a Florida mall. The disturbing video of the fight was shared on social media, featuring a large group of teens pummeling each other outside a Rue 21 clothing store inside Orange Park Mall. The Clay County Sheriff´s Office said the incident happened Saturday. In the footage, several people are seen punching a girl on a couch. Behind them another group is seen fighting as a woman appears to try and calm things down. A third and fourth group of teens are also seen fighting in the background.
A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. [SNIP] To meet that goal ETC claims the world needs “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.” That’s a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future
