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.
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
SAN FRANCISCO — Google is making changes to its search algorithm to promote more authoritative content and demote "low quality" content such as Holocaust denials. The Internet giant is responding to growing pressure to make sure the top answers it provides to people´s search queries are accurate and do not contribute to the spread of misinformation, conspiracy theories, hoaxes and offensive content on the Web. People searching Google will be able to more easily flag search results that are "unexpected, inaccurate or offensive," says Ben Gomes, vice president of engineering for Google Search. And search quality raters have received new
A judge just declared taxpayers must give money to a city that refuses to enforce federal immigration law while at the same time refusing to give any redress for the family of dead Kate Steinle due to that same sanctuary city policy. Judge William Orrick, a legacy of the liberal gentry whose grandfather founded one of the big corporate law firms in San Francisco, whose father also sat on the federal bench (and the left complains of “nepotism”?), and who, according to Public Citizen, bundled nearly a quarter of a million for Obama’s campaigns, blocked Trump’s executive order defunding sanctuary
The hecklers used their veto. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter told Fox News on Wednesday she would no longer give a planned speech at UC Berkeley after Young America’s Foundation pulled its support for the event amid threats of violence, calling her decision "a dark day for free speech in America." (Snip) But by Wednesday YAF had “actively” opposed Coulter’s speech, she said, and “ordered the lawyer not [to] file for [a] court order” which would have mandated a room for the talk. The college Republicans are bound by YAF’s decision, Coulter said, “so there’s nothing more I can do.” “I looked over
Publishers are in a massive bidding war for the Fox News host´s project — a funny and provocative take on America´s current state of affairs. (Snip) A publishing source told The Hollywood Reporter that Carlson has made the rounds of about a dozen publishers to talk about the proposal, which has generated enthusiastic responses. The winning offer could reach $15 million. Carlson is represented by Matt Latimer and Keith Urbahn at Javelin, a D.C.-based literary agency. Latimer told Buzzfeed, which first reported that Carlson was shopping a book, “Tucker’s is easily the most sought-after book by a news personality in
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai revealed Wednesday his plans for rolling back net neutrality, one of the most controversial items up for consideration at the agency. During a speech at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., Pai said he plans hand regulatory jurisdiction of broadband providers back to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), an agency that critics argue is less prepared to handle them than Pai’s is. Originally passed under Tom Wheeler’s chairmanship, the net neutrality rules -- more formally referred to as the Open Internet Order of 2015 -- set restrictions on internet service providers (ISPs) prioritizing certain
Antifa protesters loves them some violence. From punching people with cameras to rioting because you don´t like who is talking. A few times, apparently. So, leave it to the New York Times to run an op-ed that seems to argue that the rioters who disrupt speech of those they disagree with are the true guardians of free speech. The recent student demonstrations at Auburn against Spencer’s visit — as well as protests on other campuses against Charles Murray, Milo Yiannopoulos and others — should be understood as an attempt to ensure the conditions of free speech for a greater group of
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has canceled her speech planned for this week at the University of California´s Berkeley campus after a dispute with school officials, who feared violent protests, over whether a safe venue could be found. "There will be no speech," the best-selling author wrote in an email to Reuters on Wednesday in which she also criticized two conservative groups who had originally sponsored the event, saying they were no longer supporting her. "I looked over my shoulder and my allies had joined the other team," she wrote. Coulter, one of the best-known conservative commentators in the United States,
California´s attorney general insisted that the jurisdictions within the state are locking up dangerous illegal immigrants despite the Trump administration´s argument that sanctuary cities endanger public safety. Xavier Becerra, former chairman of the House Democratic Caucus who was appointed to fill the attorney general´s post vacated by now-Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), told CNN on Tuesday after a federal judge granted an injunction against the administration´s vow to strip all federal funding from sanctuary cities that the White House is "in denial." "You just have to read the constitution. It´s very simple. You can´t force states to do things that the
All eyes these days are on North Korea, but menacing as Kim & Co. may be, a nuclear-armed Iran is yet more dangerous. The North Koreans may rattle cages and stomp their feet, shooting off missiles and even testing bombs, but their intentions so far are mainly to retain their atrocious despotic control of their own people. The Iranians, both through their ideology and evident actions in progress across the globe, are truly imperialistic in their intentions. They seek to rule the Middle East, if not the world, in the name of their millenialist brand of Shia Islam. That is
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,
Barack Obama has agreed to a $400,000 fee for speaking to a prominent Wall Street firm, according to Charlie Gasparino of the Fox Business Network. Former president Obama will speak to a health care conference sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald in September, Gasparino reports. (Tweet/Video) The huge fee puts Obama at the top of the list of speaking fees for former government officials. Former Fed chair Ben Bernanke charges between $200,000 and $400,000, former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner charges $200,000, and former President George Bush charges around $150,000, according to a person familiar with the matter. Hillary Clinton received over $200,000
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
Monday on MSNBC former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest said former President Barack Obama would come back to the political debate if President Donald Trump crosses “red lines” such as using information from deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) applications to deport so-called DREAMers. (Snip) “I think what would motivate President Obama to re-engage in the political debate is if we saw the federal government start to cross some clear red lines in terms of long observed norms and values that frankly I think we have started to take for granted. One example that President Obama has himself
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
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.—I’m loving all these Ancestry.com commercials where dim-witted actors say, “I thought I was a Tahitian Eskimo Mexican until I sent in my DNA test kit, and boy was I flummoxed when the results came back! I’m really Croatian with a mix of sub-Saharan! I guess I’ll be turning in my furry hat!” This is a scam I’m thoroughly in favor of, because it reveals, once and for all, the dirty secret of American politics: Race doesn’t exist! Don’t get me wrong. I don’t believe for a second that these tests mean anything. If you believe that DNA patterns
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
Chelsea Clinton urged the importance of fighting hunger as she was honored at a New York charity gala on Tuesday night. The former First Daughter, who is a Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, was presented with the City Harvest Award for Commitment for her support of the organization through volunteering with the Clinton Foundation´s Day of Action program. She wore a colorful patterned dress, black cardigan and nude heels to the event on Tuesday, which was also attended by Chrissy Teigen, actress Bridget Moynahan, Real Housewives Of New York star Bethenny Frankel and domestic goddess Martha Stewart.
Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom. Nordstrom is offering "heavily distressed," muddy jeans for $425 on its web site. Nordstrom says that the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that´s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you´re not afraid to get down and dirty." The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch. The filthy fashion statement isn´t actually new -- the jeans have been for sale at Nordstrom as well as at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for quite some time.
Donald Trump announced Monday that the United States will impose a 20 percent tariff on all softwood lumber imported from Canada. “We love Canada, but they have been very good at taking advantage of the United States through NAFTA,” Trump told a group of reporters in the Roosevelt Room. “We are putting a 20 percent tax on lumber coming into the United States from Canada.” “Canada has treated us very unfairly,” he added. A senior administration noted that the tariff will be applied retroactively. When asked what that tax will mean for lumber production, Trump said, “It means we’re going
This didn´t get much media play anywhere else but there was a shocking robbery late Saturday night in San Francisco when a swarm of 40-60 juveniles stormed a BART train, took over a railway car, and robbed the passengers. The teens exited the train and disappeared into the surrounding East Oakland neighborhood. And yes, the story in the San Francisco Chronicle somehow fails to mention the race of the wildlings. According to a police officials, witnesses said 40 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the fare gates and rushed to the second-story train platform. Some of the robbers apparently
