Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan thinks he knows why President Donald Trump has had the NFL in his crosshairs. Jealousy. "This is a very personal issue with him," Khan told USA Today after Wednesday´s owners meetings concluded in New York regarding Trump´s insistence that the league´s players should all stand during the national anthem. Trump attempted to buy the Buffalo Bills in 2014, but his bid failed. Khan believes that might be fueling the President´s unrelenting criticism of the widespread player protests during the anthem this season. "He´s been elected President, where maybe a great goal he had in life
Comments: Another ´Khan job´ playing to the media for attention.
Trump has no reason to be jealous of anybody. As for the NFL, I could write 10 full pages of criticisms, Mr. Kahn. I no longer watch any NFL or sports. They have become political activists for leftist totalitarianism and racial hatred. Not my idea of relaxing and unwinding from a work week.
Wow jackleg he is the President of the US and as such most likely the most powerful man in the world. He is a billionaire and has a beautiful wife – great kids. If anyone is envious or jealous it is you. And you know you will never be where he is or what he is.
Khan apologized for his team´s demonstrations and he was a big donor to Trumps campaign so he´s not all bad. That said, the idea that the President of the U.S. is jealous of NFL owners is a little far fetched.
Donald Trump is the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, but he REALLY wanted to be an NFL owner. Yeah, that´t the ticket. (S/O)
And then ther is this, FTA: "NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday that the league´s owners believe players should stand for the anthem, but the league has not changed its policy on the matter."
Goodell is a liar. The league did have a policy that players would stand. They just refused to enforce it. If they had, this kerfuffle would have been over in a week.
This Khan character is trying to blame everything but the actual source of the controversy and thinks people are stupid enough to believe his BS. Every time he opens his mouth he becomes more in the mold of Hillary Clinton, false apologies and blame everyone else.
These morons in the Non Functional League (NFL) need to smarten up! Billionaire owners or not, most of these stadium venues are subsidized with public funding, and we still pay a pretty penny to go to same stadium and watch the game! And most of the rest of us patriot Americans do not agree with this childish horse kakka that is ruining one of America´s favorite pastimes. Call it what you want; but remember Newton´s Third Law of Motion "For ever action, there is an equal and opposite reaction!".
muslims are well organized, the brotherhood, CAIR, etc, share a think tank, and rapid response team, to feed extremists, like this creep Shahid Khan, on how to respond or what to say on any given subject, for the sake of the jihad.
How about we go with the simplest answer. POTUS Trump is criticizing the NFL because it is allowing it´s employees to wipe their as$ with our flag, and at the same time dishonoring our war dead through the anthem kneeling. Trump is POTUS which means he is Commander in Chief of the military. Trump is correctly doing his job. Up yours Khan. I am from Florida and I will NEVER patronize your team as long as you are the owner.
Of course a foreign immigrant like Kahn artist doesn´t understand why America is so angry. Now if his own pagan cult god were being insulted, does he really expect us to believe he would stand by quietly? Don´t think so Sparky the Kahn artist.
Keep it up, please. Keep lecturing us, keep ´protesting,´ keep flip flopping and pretending all of the disrespect is not exactly what it is, blatant racism against all whites and all authority and all things proudly American/USA. You can have it Khan. Defend it, please. Then instead of eating the absolute -20% revenue you will get this season, you can make it -30 or even -40%. More desperate, strident, insults should do it, so go for it big man.
Tesla said it would rather spend money on litigation and “fight to the ends of the Earth” than give in to what it called extortion and abuse of the legal system connected to a recent lawsuit alleging racism at the company’s factory in Fremont, Calif. Tesla earlier this week was hit by a class-action lawsuit by former worker Marcus Vaughn, calling the company a hotbed of racist behavior. That was the latest legal action involving allegations of racism at Tesla. In a blog post late Monday, Tesla sought to contest certain allegations in the lawsuit and said that it takes
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A major blackout hit Puerto Rico´s most populated region on Wednesday just as the government announced it had met its goal of 50 percent power generation nearly two months after Hurricane Maria struck as a Category 4 storm. The Electric Power Authority said it dispatched crews to investigate why a key 230 kilovolt line that connects the island´s northern and southern regions had failed for the second time in a week. The blackout affected the capital of San Juan and nearby cities and towns along the U.S. territory´s north coast, provoking a groan from people
MINNEAPOLIS – A 20-year-old Minneapolis man is facing assault charges after allegedly stabbing two men in a fitting room at Macy’s at the Mall of America Sunday night. Mahad Abdiraham was charged with two counts of first-degree assault causing great bodily harm in connection with the incident. According to the charges, a 19-year-old man who was with at family members at the Mall of America to shop came out of a dressing room to show his family pants he was thinking of buying. When the man returned to the dressing room, Abdiraham was near the room and appeared as if
America´s political establishment just will not take a hint. The latest evidence is the growing buzz surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden´s potential presidential candidacy in 2020. Appearing in a series of interviews for his new book, Biden is now not ruling out a run for the White House.One question: Why is this anything other than a joke?It´s one thing to be depressed and disappointed about Donald Trump´s victory, but have these people forgotten everything we learned from the 2016 election?Apparently so. Not only did the ultimate outsider win the election, but the second most formidable force throughout the contest
Texas woman Roslyn Corrigan claims that former President George H.W. Bush groped her when she was just 16 years old. According to Corrigan, the groping occurred in November of 2003 at an event in The Woodlands, Texas. This is the sixth woman to publicly accuse the 41st president of grabbing her butt without consent. Speaking to Time magazine, Corrigan, who is now in her early 30s, said, “My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused. The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything,” she
A teacher is facing disciplinary action at his school after he referred to a transgender pupil as a girl, although the student identifies as a boy. Joshua Sutcliffe, a Christian pastor from Oxford, admitted he said "Well done girls" when addressing a group including the student. He described it as a "slip of the tongue", but said he believed biological sex was defined at birth. The school said it would be "inappropriate" to comment. Mr Sutcliffe, who teaches children aged between 11 and 18, said the incident took place on 2 November. He said a week-long investigation found he had
For Democrats, signs everywhere suddenly look rosy. They won smashing victories last week in Virginia and other states. With voters giving the Trump presidency and the Republican-led Congress dismal grades, and the Democratic grass roots re-energized, hope is widespread for a takeover of the House of Representatives and a strong run in the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections. (Snip) What’s more, the electoral landscape is tilted against them for reasons besides gerrymandering. Liberal voters and racial minorities tend to be clustered in major cities and their suburbs, concentrating the Democratic base in a smaller number of congressional districts, even
RICHMOND, Va. — Unease over violent white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville this summer and President Donald Trump´s response loomed in the minds of many Virginia voters during Tuesday´s elections in which Democrats made significant gains, according to progressive advocacy groups and interviews with voters. The governor´s race was one of Virginia´s most racially charged in recent memory, and voters were peppered with ads that referenced the August violence. (Snip) In the governor´s race, Northam´s TV attacks on Gillespie focused more on his lobbying career than racial issues, but a Northam mailer lumped Gillespie in with the torch-wielding white supremacists in
Sign of the times in Rome: the city´s cash-strapped administration is eyeing up the coins tossed by tourists into the celebrated Trevi Fountain. Previously swept up and handed over to Catholic charity Caritas, the coins, which can add up to as much as a million euros a year, will now be claimed by Mayor Virginia Raggi for projects to be decided by a city hall working group, according to reports in the local media on Friday. Legend has it that anyone who lobs a piece of change into the nearly 300-year-old fountain while facing away from the Baroque masterpiece is
Calling violence in Baltimore “out of control,” Mayor Catherine Pugh ordered 30 agency heads to meet every morning at police headquarters, and to make crime reduction the top mission not only of police, but also of health workers, housing officials and public works crews. (Snip) Killings in the city have surged past 300 this year for a third year in a row. Violent crime is up 13 percent over last year, and reports of groups of youths attacking people apparently at random have dominated recent local news cycles. Pugh said she was calling on businesses and philanthropies to help fund
When it comes to holiday shopping sprees, Black Friday is no longer the prime event. A new analysis finds that more shoppers are choosing to spread out their holiday purchases rather than stick with the ritual of rising before dawn the morning after Thanksgiving in order to stand in line outside a store and then shop until they drop. During the week that includes Thanksgiving, 35% of shoppers say they intend to do most of their shopping on Black Friday this year, down from 59% in 2015, according to the analysis released Tuesday by consultancy PwC. Retailers are rolling out deep-discount deals, the "doorbusters" that were
The Republican members of the elite Winged Foot Golf Club in Westchester County, New York, are angry after the club management refused to honor and put up a portrait of President Donald Trump in the club. Trump is a member of the elite club that charges as much as $200,000 as its initiation fees, and the Republicans among the 800 members of the club have been asking to have a POTUS portrait hung inside the clubhouse. According to Page Six, an insider at the club said, "Trump has been a member of this club since 1969, and there is a
In the past few weeks, I´ve been a woman of split personalities. On a good day, I´m elated — empowered and inspired by the many women who have courageously opened the floodgates to help end the shroud of silence and shame that surrounds victims of sexual assault and harassment. I shared my stories. I brought other women together to share theirs. We were giddy at the catharsis. It felt like a sea change. On a bad day, I´m despondent — devastated and angry that so many of the people who were rightly outraged over Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey were utterly disbelieving
Known for his insightful take on politics, journalist and author Thomas Wictor believes Judge Roy Moore’s signature in Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook is a forgery. (Photo) The sevens in 1977 to the right of “Christmas,” are very different from the sevens in the date (12-22-77) above “Old Hickory House.” “Look at the two versions of the number “7,” tweeted Wictor. “”12-22-77” and “Olde Hickory House” were written by a different person,” he added. Next, Wictor points out “the “R” and “y” in “Roy,”” are not written the same way. The inflection of the “Y” is more pronounced
Jeff Sessions is a man in search of a banana peel. When he can’t find one to step on, he supplies his own. Sessions is not a bad man, but he is a bad attorney general, as he demonstrated again Tuesday. By writing to Republicans in Congress just hours before he was scheduled to testify that he was open to appointing a special prosecutor to examine former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail case and the notorious Uranium One deal, Sessions primed the pump for a really big show. Democrats arrived furious and Republicans gleefully expected an ah-ha moment. Both
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is said to be considering appointing a second special counsel to investigate issues related to former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, and the Obama administration. Sessions´ contemplation comes after the House Judiciary Chairman urged him to look into Comey´s handling of the FBI´s investigation into Clinton´s email use, the 2010 Uranium One deal, and the Clinton Foundation. Trump has repeatedly called Sessions a "weak" attorney general and pushed him to investigate Clinton and the Democrats as the FBI investigates Trump and his campaign for possible collusion with Moscow during the 2016
The ´socialist´ doctor charged with cracking Senator Rand Paul´s ribs in a crunching blindside tackle may have harbored a secret grudge against his GOP neighbor for spoiling his lakeside views and ´devaluing´ his home, DailyMail.com can reveal. Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn´t been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressman´s trees were ´in the way´. It´s believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Paul´s property that blocks the doctor´s views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated
When the Washington Post filed its story against Roy Moore last week, we took a cautious line, agreeing with Republican lawmakers who said “if true,” these charges disqualify the GOP´s nominee in Alabama’s special election for the Senate. We pressed Republicans to extract more information from Moore. Since then, plenty more information has emerged. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, after getting Moore’s side of the story last week, withdrew his endorsement of the former judge. A former boyfriend of the chief Washington Post subject, who says Moore fondled her as a 14-year-old after flirting with her outside a custody hearing, corroborated the story. A
Was a 14-year-old girl molested by Alabama Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore, or is she lying? It’s a yes-or-no question. Was a 16-year-old girl sexually assaulted by Moore, or is she lying? Again, it’s a yes-or-no question. Finally, do you believe that there are conditions under which a child molester should sit in the United States Senate? Again, this question is binary. Yet many conservatives seem to be seeking a third answer to all three of these questions, mostly to avoid giving straight answers. Let’s begin with the first question: Did Roy Moore molest a 14-year-old girl?
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday that the entire U.S. House will now face mandatory training to avoid sexual harassment and discrimination, moving to address the growing national scandal over behavior ranging from the boorish to the criminal. His comments came hours after a House committee held a hearing on harassment. Mr. Ryan said the House will now have a policy of mandatory training for every lawmaker and every staffer. “Our goal is not only to raise awareness, but also make abundantly clear that harassment in any form has no place in this institution,” he said.
Environment: This week, thousands of scientists issued a bleak and terrifying "second notice" to mankind about how we will destroy the planet unless we take "urgent" action. If this warning is as reliable as the first notice these scientists issued in 1992, we have nothing to worry about. In an article published in the journal Bioscience, 15,364 scientists warned that we are "jeopardizing our future" and that "immediate action" is needed to "safeguard our imperiled biosphere." "Soon it will be too late to shift course away from our failing trajectory, and time is running out," the scientists say. The article
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside, hours after a new accuser came forward alleging Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager. “If he continues this will not end well for Mr. Moore,” Graham tweeted. (Snip) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), on Monday called for Moore to “step aside,” and was followed by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and others. Some have suggested rallying a write-in campaign around Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who lost to Moore in a primary runoff in September.
It was a rather cagey move via Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The longtime anti-Trumper was barely able to conceal his smirk as he informed the media that should Roy Moore win next month’s Alabama special election to fill the vacant Senate seat created when Jeff Sessions became the U.S. Attorney General, it would be up to President Trump to make the final decision regarding whether or not Moore would be allowed to actually serve in the Senate. (Snip) Democrats in Congress are said to already be preparing a full-on “If Roy Moore isn’t fit to be a senator then Donald
Papa John´s apologized Tuesday night for comments made by CEO John Schnatter blaming sluggish pizza sales on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. The company is a major NFL sponsor and advertiser, and Schnatter said on an earnings call Nov. 1 that "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John´s shareholders" and that the protests "should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago."(Snip) "The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive," it said. "That definitely was not our
