Allah makes people like Trump to make mistakes to discredit them in public eyes forever.” – Khizr Khan, Dunya Pakistani News

Republicans are very naïve or stupid to fall for the lies told by Khizr Khan, which are being enthusiastically supported by the establishment media.

Khizr Khan appeared at the Democratic National Convention with his wife, Ghazala, alongside an image of their late son, U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who was killed in Iraq in 2004. Khan delivered a vile speech filled with lies attacking Donald Trump. Trump was against the Iraq war, and Hillary backed it – go figure.

Khan said that if Trump had his way, his son wouldn’t have entered the U.S. Khan also said, “Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims. He disrespects other minorities, women, judges, and even his own party leadership. … He (Trump) vows to build walls and ban us (Muslims) from this country.”

He added, “We cannot solve our problems by building walls. … We will keep getting stronger when Hillary Clinton becomes our president.”

Khzir Khan is a con man. He’s politicizing his son’s death and using his status as a Gold Star parent to attack the Republican presidential candidate. The media are all in for Hillary, and they’re doing everything in their power to discredit Trump. And Republicans are being manipulated with words and emotions.

When Trump was asked about Khan’s speech, he said he has “great honor” for Khan’s son (Capt. Humayun Khan), and considers him a “hero.” He also said he was viciously attacked by Khan at the convention. Trump added that the speech sounded as though Hillary’s campaign wrote it, and he questioned why Khan’s wife stood by silently.

Following Trump’s comments, Democrats dispatched their minions – including their willing allies in the press – to destroy him. They tried to pit Trump against veterans and Gold Star families – the surviving spouses, parents and immediate family members of armed forces members killed while serving their country.

Khizr Khan went on a media tour attacking Trump. In an interview on CNN, Khan said Trump is “ignorant,” “incapable of empathy” and a “black soul” who is unfit to lead. He’s also been trashing Trump on Muslim-run media outlets overseas. This is not Gold Star behavior!

There’s more to Khizr Khan than meets the eye. Khan is a lawyer who works for the interests of Muslim nations and Islamic oil companies. He has close ties to Hillary Clinton and Saudi Arabia. He’s opposed to Trump’s plan to close U.S. immigration loopholes, and wants the U.S. border to remain porous.

As reported by Breitbart News:

Khizr Khan has all sorts of financial, legal, and political connections to the Clintons through his old law firm, the mega-D.C. firm Hogan Lovells LLP. That firm did Hillary Clinton’s taxes for years, starting when Khan still worked there involved in, according to his own website, matters “firm wide” – back in 2004. It also has represented, for years, the government of Saudi Arabia in the United States. Saudi Arabia, of course, is a Clinton Foundation donor which—along with the mega-bundlers of thousands upon thousands in political donations to both of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2016 – plays right into the “Clinton Cash” narrative.

And for all Khan’s bluster at the Democratic National Convention, where he waved a pocket U.S. Constitution and asked if Donald Trump had even read it, Khan has written extensively on Shariah law, including this nugget, “All other juridical works which have been written during more than thirteen centuries are very rich and indispensable, but they must always be subordinated to the Shariah and open to reconsideration by all Muslims.”

What a “Khan” man!

Over the last 26 years, I’ve worked with veterans and active members of the military through my nonprofit organization, BOND. I have the utmost respect for these men and women and their families, but losing a loved one, as tragic as that is, doesn’t give Khizr Khan license to lie and smear Donald Trump without being challenged.

Yet, the Democrats and even some Republicans are using this issue to bludgeon Trump. It’s disappointing to see Republicans join with Democrats to attack the Republican presidential candidate, and say nothing about the Democrats’ disingenuous support for Gold Star families and the military – especially when Trump has been very vocal about his unwavering support for the military, veterans and wounded warriors.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats have been undermining and weakening the military for years, so for liberals to pretend to be pro-military when it’s politically advantageous is disgusting!

Khizr Khan attacked Donald Trump, and Trump had to respond to the lies. If he remained silent, he would have looked weak and inept. Trying to pit Gold Star families and veterans against Trump is a clear attempt to crush Trump and the movement he has awakened.

We’re a few months away from the most significant presidential election of our lifetime. Republicans must unify if they expect to win. All Americans who love this country must recognize and stand up to lies, and they must unite on the issues that are vital to our survival.
