The Gold Star father who came to Indianapolis to speak about civil discourse ripped into President Donald Trump, calling him "illiterate and uneducated" on Saturday evening. In reference to Trump´s rollback of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, , Khizr Khan´s criticism came after a community conversation,  "Talking Through Unity and Civility with Khizr Khan," on Saturday evening at St. Luke´s United Methodist Church. John Krull, host of "No Limits" on WFYI-FM (90.1), moderated the discussion. Khan is the Gold Star father who challenged Trump to rethink his stance on Muslims´ and religious minorities´ place in society during the 2016 presidential election. Khan´s son was killed in

Pres. Trump has gotten pretty far in life for someone who is supposedly uneducated and unable to read.

The son seems like he was a good American. The father is a rude, nasty Muslim hater.

Until he came along, I had never seen the term ´gold star father.´
Gold star mother? Yes. My Aunt Jennie was a gold star mother twice over. But my uncle never claimed to be a gold star father.
As far as Khan goes, he should read the U*.S. constitution, instead of waving it over his head. He is uninformed.

Khan is just another unethical, lying democrat. He is using his Gold Star status, given to him by a son who gave his life for this country, to spout off on things he knows nothing about but is instilled in the Left´s propaganda. Without the death of his son, Khan would have no more status than another American hating muslim.

I am heartened when I hear what the Left is saying. They are so far beyond the pale of reasonable, decent behavior that they cannot be winning friends.

If they said "President Trump is a decent man, but we share a different vision" I´d be worried.

Today, 9/11, as we have tears in our eyes as we remember the ruthless islamo-terrorists´ attack against America the Beautiful, we wonder how it can be that this country which welcomes everyone equally, -and legally, has so many intolerant, disrespectful & disruptive haters. -´Tis a conundrum. We see rioters, looters, rhetorical rants and other displays of, ´man´s inhumanity to man,´ displayed right before our eyes on tv 24/7, both on the news reports & lefty political dramas. ...Don´t we learn anything after such tragedies regarding the validity of The Golden Rule? America has always stood for The Golden Rule, lest forget! ...Always remember that basic life principle.

Trump may be a lot of things but illiterate and uneducated he is not. A degree in economics from Penn (Wharton) is not easy (or it wasn´t at the time, it may be watered down now).

It´s a stupid thing for this America-hating Muslim to say. I guess they have run out of things to call the President...Nazi and racist have lost any meaning that they once had.

Regardless of what one thinks about DACA, Mr. Trump has done the right thing. He is forcing Congress to do its job -- make laws.

Right now, DACA is on shaky legal ground. Even lib Dem Senator Feinstein, who is no friend of Mr. Trump´s policies, has indicated that DACA has legal problems.

So . . . by forcing Congress to do its job, Mr. Trump might actually be benefiting the people DACA is meant to help. They certainly won´t be held in legal limbo anymore.

Members of Congress will actually have to take a stand. They´ll have to show their true selves. They can´t hide behind a legally problematic executive branch decision.

In the end, Khan is Khan, and Trump is Trump, and I know who I am supporting. Everything I needed to know about Muslims I learned on 9-11. I just find it hard to understand why the liberal supremacists support Muslims so much, considering they want to kill so many of the Democrat factions.

Mr. Khan is the only guy in the USA that the media refers to as being a "Gold Star" father. Mr. Khan is also an immigration lawyer who makes his money by providing legal services to foreigners, who no doubt are just about all Pakistani Muslims, who are trying to get visas of all sorts to enter the USA. In that respect Mr. Khan has a "special interest" in attempting to ensure that the USA adopts the most liberal immigration polices possible especially to foreign Muslims from Pakistan that no doubt make up most of Mr. Khan´s foreign client base.

It is simple, the bigger Mr. Khan´s foreign client base is, the more money he makes. Most immigration lawyers are liberal Democrats because the Democrat Party has morphed into a transnational political entity that is known to support the most liberal immigration policy possible and to defend and protect illegal aliens. If you were to check, chances are you will find that when Mr. Khan obtained naturalized US citizenship, that he also retained his Pakistani citizenship and is a duel national, still owing his primary allegiance to Pakistan and his secondary allegiance to the USA.

Mr. Khan´s political history since the Democrat National convention has absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Khan´s son who joined the US Army and was killed in action years ago.

Hopefully President Trump will simply ignore Mr. Khan and his obviously politically based claims.

Mr. Khan,
The former President was "illiterate, and uneducated" as to the Constitution of these United States. An executive order to allow DACA was found to be unconstitutional and lost 4 times in court!!! But because people in DC are to spineless to follow the law, they kept following this illegal act!! Check out article 1 section 8 of constitution. Congress is "To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization" Not the President!! Trump is following the Constitution, if you don´t like it, go back to the Sh*t hole Middle East you came from!!

President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem - and called on fans to walk out if they see anyone doing so. Several of the league´s top stars have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police in the United States. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a public stance on the issue while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn´t been signed by an NFL team for this season. While he didn´t mention Kaepernick specifically by name Trump indicated he believes any players protesting are disrespecting the flag and deserve

Democrats are worried that the fight between former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is doing lasting damage to their party. As the bickering between the former rivals grows more intense, Democrats say it needs to end. "It reiterates that our party is still led by people with fatal flaws," said one former senior Obama administration official. Another former Obama official added, "It´s like watching two children bickering." The only winner from the infighting, they say, is the Republican president.

But Clinton has also spoken candidly about how deep-rooted sexism played a hand in her defeat, and about the double standards she faced as the first woman nominated by a major party for president in America’s 240-year history. In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Clinton spoke further about how misogyny is used as

A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently.

It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell snapped back at “divisive” comments about the league Saturday, hours after President Trump urged team owners to fire players who won’t stand for the national anthem. At a political rally Friday night in Alabama, Trump griped that players who kneel for “The Star Spangled Banner” disrespect the flag and should lose their jobs. (Snip) Goodell issued a statement via Twitter at 9:16 a.m. Saturday: “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs

There really ought to be a statute of limitations on how long John McCain can play the tortured war hero card. His war hero status was exhausted with me a decade ago over a single instance. Brad Smith, who as chairman of the Federal Election Commission and law professor dared to criticize the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on constitutional grounds (later vindicated in several Supreme Court cases culminating in the glorious Citizens United decision), came before a Senate committee one day to testify about campaign finance laws. He had recently had surgery, and had to appear in a wheelchair. Smith wheeled himself

President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem - and called on fans to walk out if they see anyone doing so. Several of the league´s top stars have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police in the United States. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a public stance on the issue while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn´t been signed by an NFL team for this season. While he didn´t mention Kaepernick specifically by name Trump indicated he believes any players protesting are disrespecting the flag and deserve

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put
