Indianapolis Star, by Fatima Hussein

Original Article

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

Comments:
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!!

‘Doug Jones’s problem’: African American

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Ensley Park Recreation Center was beginning to come to life. The song “Happy” and other upbeat tunes boomed through the loudspeakers. And a crowd was gathering for a chance to glimpse something rarely seen in conservative Alabama: a surging Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate. But Donald Williams was skeptical.

MOSCOW — For months, President Vladimir V. Putin has predictably denied accusations of Russian interference in last year’s American election, denouncing them as fake news fueled by Russophobic hysteria. More surprising, some of Mr. Putin’s biggest foes in Russia, notably pro-Western liberals who look to the United States as an exemplar of democratic values and journalistic excellence, are now joining a chorus of protest over America’s fixation with Moscow’s meddling in its political affairs. “Enough already!” Leonid M. Volkov, chief of staff for the anti-corruption campaigner and opposition leader Aleksei A. Navalny, wrote in a recent anguished post on Facebook.

When he was named special counsel in May, Robert S. Mueller III was hailed as the ideal lawman — deeply experienced, strait-laced and nonpartisan — to investigate whether President Trump’s campaign had helped with Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The accolades squared with Mueller’s valor as a Marine rifle platoon commander in Vietnam and his integrity as a federal prosecutor, a senior Justice Department official and FBI director from 2001 to 2013, the longest tenure since J. Edgar Hoover. He was praised by former courtroom allies and opponents, and by Democrats and Republicans in Congress.

Come late November, the British and European media customarily feature that all-American picture of the US President and his happy family sparing the Thanksgiving turkey. Perhaps it was just the press of other news – the non-coup coup that pushed a tenacious 93-year-old from his perch in Zimbabwe; the first intimations of Angela Merkel’s political mortality; the latest spasms of Brexit; (parochially) the UK Budget. Perhaps it also reflected the unpopularity of the current White House incumbent on the European side of the Atlantic Ocean. Whatever the reason, those turkey pictures seemed fewer and further between this year, and the

WASHINGTON — For weeks, Facebook has been under intense scrutiny in Washington after revelations about Russian attempts to use the platform to influence the 2016 elections. Now, some lawmakers are talking about turning that scrutiny into action. There are new calls on Capitol Hill for stronger federal regulation of Facebook, possibly requiring greater transparency and disclosures for digital political ads. But lawmakers have yet to take up more sweeping reforms that some internet policy experts and advocates believe are necessary to protect users of the social-media platform, given Facebook’s outsize influence and vast stores of personal data.

As a wave of stories unfold about sexual harassment and assault by men in power, a senior Democratic leader says her party should reflect on how it handled such charges when they were leveled against former President Bill Clinton.

"And so it doubled down on not only bad behavior but abusive behavior. And then people attacked the victims." Sebelius extended her criticism to Hillary Clinton, and

A retired lieutenant general said Thursday that President Trump’s comments to troops deployed overseas, which included remarks about the economy and military’s recent success, were “somewhat insulting.” “First of all, I’m thankful for the fact that he did address the soldiers. But the message I heard and some of the things he said would not have rung very well with me had I been a deployed soldier,” CNN military analyst and retired Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling said. Trump spoke from his Mar-a-Lago estate to troops deployed overseas via video teleconference. During the call, the president praised the military’s recent performance,

True to the theme that he’s been nationally talking about – or rather, taking a knee for – since last summer, former 49er Colin Kaepernick attended an “Unthanksgiving Day” celebration on Alcatraz Island. The Indigenous Peoples Sunrise Ceremony, held annually on Thanksgiving since 1975, commemorates the survival of Native American peoples following the settlement of Europeans in the Western Hemisphere. Kaepernick began making headlines in August when a photographer spotting him sitting during the national anthem. He told reporters that he sat, or took a knee, because he was fighting to combat the oppression of people of color and ongoing issues

Recent pics of Malia Obama showed her kissing a tall, athletically-built white male who was most likely a fellow university student. It seems normal enough, right? She’s a young woman, he’s a young man – so what’s the problem? Well, apparently many in the Black community find what she did to be an appalling act of…racism. The onslaught of negativity directed at the daughter of the former President is both shocking and troubling. Why do so many choose to see the world through the narrow prism of color and then demand that color requires one to never deviate from their “rules”

The ever-widening use of artificial lights is making the nighttime Earth glow increasingly brighter, with the amount of global light growing about 2 percent each year. That worries advocates for the protection of dark skies, who say that artificial night glow can affect wildlife like migrating birds and keeps people from connecting to the stars. What´s more, they say, all that wasted light sent out into space is effectively wasted money. The findings are in a new study in the journal Science Advances that used five years of data from a satellite launched in 2011. This satellite has an instrument that gives

At age 10, Levi Draheim hates math and loves reading Harry Potter books. He plays the violin but dislikes practicing. What he really enjoys is paddling a kayak or going swimming.

He´s also one of 21 children across America who are suing the federal government for its failure to combat climate change. Levi, an only child who is homeschooled by his mom, is the youngest plaintiff involved in the case

What´s a witch-hunter to do when there´s no witch, and witchcraft itself turns out to be imaginary? When even the latest accusation against the biggest scapegoat of the house is a crock? Alan Dershowitz, a liberal in good standing with occasional fits of constitutional sanity, has called on Bob Mueller, aka "The Special Prosecutor," to resign, ´cause there´s no there there. Professor Dershowitz points out that Trump may be guilty of sins "but not crimes." Well, if POTUS Trump is a sinner, I hope the Lord forgives him, along with the rest of us.

In “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” Denzel Washington plays an idealistic defense attorney whose beliefs are tested when he joins a new law firm. The Oscar winner says making the film did not make him more cynical about the justice system and, when asked about the prison-industrial complex, the “Malcolm X” star offered a surprising take. “It starts at the home,” he told reporters at the film’s downtown New York premiere. “It starts at home.” When prodded to expand on his answer, the 62-year-old Mount Vernon native replied: “It starts with how you raise your children.
