    Wow - who would ever imagine Trump supporters booing a military mom - who is a Trump supporter herself!

    I saw that. Indiana Mike did a good job there. What's sad is that members of the audience were actually booing the mother of the soldier.

    What is wrong with people?

    Of course Obama's approval rating is more than 50% and has been moving upward. That in addition to the fact that he isn't running, limits his boost to Trump, I would think.

    drumpf is not going to stop until he has the last word or feels like he has won. He is never going to win this fight, because the more he responds the more veterans and their supporters close ranks against him.


    In an interview with a local Ohio television station on Monday, Donald Trump said that Khizr Khan was really bothered by his position on border security — specifically his promise to keep radical Islamic terrorists from entering the country.
    “Well, I was very viciously attacked, as you know, on the stage,” Trump told Columbus’s ABC affiliate ABC6, when asked about Khan’s DNC speech. “And I was surprised to see it. And so all I did — I have great honor and great feeling for his son, Mr. Khan’s son. But, and as far as I’m concerned, he’s a hero.”
    When the interviewer brought up Trump’s position on border security, Trump said, “It’s a very big subject for me. And border security’s very big. And when you have radical Islamic terrorists probably all over the place, we’re allowing them to come in by the thousands and thousands. And I think that’s what bothered Mr. Khan more than anything else.
    “And, you know, I’m not going to change my views on that. We have radical Islamic terrorists coming in that have to be stopped. We’re taking them in by the thousands.”
    Trump lashed out at Khan, the father of a soldier who was killed in Iraq, late last week, after Khan delivered a rousing speech at the Democratic National Convention, calling Trump out for his rhetoric toward Muslims. In an interview over the weekend, Trump insinuated that Khan’s wife was not allowed to speak onstage because of her Muslim faith.
    Trump has faced backlash from Republicans and Democrats over his remarks but has continued to attack the Khans.

    True, but Donald Trump still showed himself to lack both decency and intelligence in his handling of this matter.

    Donald Trump doesn't even understand basic geography. The United States isn't going to be 'bombarded' with thousands upon thousands military aged Muslim males unvetted like the current predicament in Europe because of this thing called the Atlantic Ocean. A large portion of Syrian refugees that came to Europe came totally unvetted because they washed up ashore on the Mediterranean coast. That is not a possibility in the U.S.

    He doesn't care - it serves his purpose to use that line of attack. He is depending on the gullibility and ignorance of the American people.

    Re-emphasizing his stance on border security was fine. Attacking the mother was stupid, at best. In short, you can respond without attacking. Trump still has work to do in this area.

    I have to wonder if Khan's inclusion, and speech, wasn't at least partially intended to get a response from Trump. If so, smart move, with the desired effect.

    As a veteran this whole situation rubs me the wrong way. American citizens talk about what "we" need to do in regards to homeland security and our international presence. However, "we" (the citizens) don't do the fighting. Service members (active, reserve, guard) and former service members (veterans and retirees) have signed up to do the actual work and possibly die in a foreign land if it comes to that.

    To disrespect the family of an American soldier who paid the ultimate price is just ridiculous. Usually, the Republicans can count on the support of the armed forces since we are typically a very conservative organization but Trump has managed to even alienate this base.

    It's becoming more and more clearer. You guys were duped! Now it crow and apologize to me.

    Panic Mode: Khizr Khan Deletes Law Firm Website that Specialized in Muslim Immigration

    Khizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star father that Democrats and their allies media wide have been using to hammer GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump, has deleted his law firm’s website from the Internet.
    This development is significant, as his website proved—as Breitbart News and others have reported—that he financially benefits from unfettered pay-to-play Muslim migration into America.

    A snapshot of his now deleted website, as captured by the Wayback Machine which takes snapshots archiving various websites on the Internet, shows that as a lawyer he engages in procurement of EB5 immigration visas and other “Related Immigration Services.”

    The website is completely removed from the Internet, and instead directs visitors to the URL at which it once was to a page parking the URL run by GoDaddy.

    The EB5 program, which helps wealthy foreigners usually from the Middle East essentially buy their way into America, is fraught with corruption. U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has detailed such corruption over the past several months, and in February issued a blistering statement about it.

    “Maybe it is only here on Capitol Hill—on this island surrounded by reality—that we can choose to plug our ears and refuse to listen to commonly accepted facts,” Grassley said in a statement earlier this year. “The Government Accountability Office, the media, industry experts, members of congress, and federal agency officials, have concurred that the program is a serious problem with serious vulnerabilities. Allow me to mention a few of the flaws.”

    Grassley’s statement even noted that the program Khan celebrated on his website has posed national security risks.

    “There are also classified reports that detail the national security, fraud and abuse. Our committee has received numerous briefings and classified documents to show this side of the story,” Grassley said in the early February 2016 statement. “The enforcement arm of the Department of Homeland Security wrote an internal memo that raises significant concerns about the program. One section of the memo outlines concerns that it could be used by Iranian operatives to infiltrate the United States. The memo identifies seven main areas of program vulnerability, including the export of sensitive technology, economic espionage, use by foreign government agents and terrorists, investment fraud, illicit finance and money laundering.”

    Khan spoke alongside his wife Ghazala Khan at the Democratic National Convention last week in Philadelphia, and they were honoring their son U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan—a hero who lost his life to a suicide bomber in Iraq in 2004. On behalf of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, Khizr Khan ripped into Donald Trump’s policies on immigration—specifically bashing his plan to bar Muslim migration from regions afflicted with rampant terrorism into America temporarily until the United States can figure out what’s going on.

    Khan even brought out a pocket Constitution, claiming inaccurately that Trump’s plans were unconstitutional. That’s not true, as Congress has already granted such power to the president under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952—allowing the president to bar migration of any alien or class of aliens the president sees as a threat to the United States for any reason at any time. Such a class of aliens could be Muslims, or it could be people from a specific region of the world, or any other class—such as someone’s race, weight, height, age, national origin, religion, or anything else.

    The media, along with Hillary Clinton and her supporters throughout the Democratic Party establishment, has pushed the line of attack against Trump for days. Now on Tuesday, President Barack Obama has said that Trump is “unfit” to serve as President over the matter. Even a group of anti-Trump congressional Republicans has gone after Trump on the matter.

    But as Breitbart News and other new media have exposed Khan’s various deep political and legal connections to the Clintons—and to Muslim migration—the attack line has crumbled. Now, with Khan deleting his website in an apparent effort to hide his biographical information, the attack is falling apart even more.

    What’s perhaps interesting is that also on this website that he has now deleted, Khan revealed that he spent nearly a decade working for the mega-D.C. law firm Hogan & Hartson—now Hogan Lovells LLP—which connects him directly with the government of Saudi Arabia and the Clintons themselves. Saudi Arabia, which has retained the firm that Khan worked at for years, has donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. Hillary Clinton, despite the repeated urging of Trump, has refused to return the Clinton Cash money to the Saudis. What’s more, Hogan Lovells also did Hillary Clinton’s taxes—and helped acquire the patents for parts of the technology she used in crafting her illicit home-brew email server that the FBI director called “extremely careless” in handling classified information.

    What’s more, the entire mainstream has proven negligence with regard to this matter as none of them even thought to look into this Khan guy’s law practice before bandying him about as some kind of magic elixir that cures the country of Trump.
