The swarming of establishment media attack dogs and sanctimonious Never Trumpers over the Donald’s response to Queen Hillary’s Muslim stage prop Khizr Khan is reminiscent of last summer’s ginned-up John McCain “war hero” controversy. So it was only fitting that the loathsome Arizona Senator – who is running for his sixth term – led Monday’s charge against Trump. Old blood and guts brayed in outrage and as usual, the media ate it up from the reigning king of the Sunday morning talk shows. McCain was joined by Emperor Obama who like the demagogic toad Hillary has relished in ratcheting up his rhetoric against Trump.
Mr. Khan and his wife have been the toast of the nation as they made their rounds on numerous television shows but the angry little Muslim is discovering that his sudden ascendance to fame has it’s pitfalls. For instance, there is the increased scrutiny of the attorney’s background that has turned up some rather interesting tidbits that there may be more to Mr. Khan that meets the eye. Breitbart News has published a major expose questioning Khan’s alleged ties to shady Muslim immigration fronts, the Saudis and the globe-spanning influence peddling crime syndicate that is the Clinton Foundation.
According to the conservative news website’s big scoop “Clinton Cash: Khizr Khan’s Deep Legal, Financial Connections to Saudi Arabia, Hillary’s Clinton Foundation Tie Terror, Immigration, Email Scandals Together”:
Khizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star father that the mainstream media and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been using to criticize Donald J. Trump, has deep ties to the government of Saudi Arabia—and to international Islamist investors through his own law firm. In addition to those ties to the wealthy Islamist nation, Khan also has ties to controversial immigration programs that wealthy foreigners can use to essentially buy their way into the United States—and has deep ties to the “Clinton Cash” narrative through the Clinton Foundation.
Khan and his wife Ghazala Khan both appeared on stage at the Democratic National Convention to attack, on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s behalf, Donald Trump—the Republican nominee for president. Their son, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq in 2004. Khizr Khan, in his speech to the DNC, lambasted Donald Trump for wanting to temporarily halt Islamic migration to America from countries with a proven history of exporting terrorists.
Since then, Clinton operative George Stephanopoulos—who served as a senior adviser to the president in Bill Clinton’s White House and is a Clinton Foundation donor as well as a host on the ABC network—pushed Trump on the matter in an interview. Trump’s comments in that interview have sparked the same mini-rebellion inside his party, in the media and across the aisle that has happened many times before. The usual suspects inside the GOP, from former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to House Speaker Paul Ryan to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to Ohio Gov. John Kasich, have condemned Trump in one way or another. The media condemnation has been swift and Democrats, as well their friends throughout media, are driving the train as fast as they can.
But until now, it looked like the Khans were just Gold Star parents who the big bad Donald Trump attacked. It turns out, however, in addition to being Gold Star parents, the Khans are financially and legally tied deeply to the industry of Muslim migration–and to the government of Saudi Arabia and to the Clintons themselves.
By now it should be obvious to all but the anti-Trump forces that the whole thing was a trap from the moment that Khan waved around his pocket Constitution and denounced Trump on the stage in Philly on the night when there would be the highest viewership. The ambush was nearly immediate as Trump was baited into commenting on Khan and then the presstitutes and politicos did their work, howling about the billionaire insurgent’s audacity to go after parents who had lost their son in Iraq. It’s a glaring bit of hypocrisy in that all of those calling for Trump’s head on a pike had no qualms in exploiting Khan’s dead son in order to advance the political agenda of the Clinton crime family. I also reiterate that the media organizations and slimy politicians who are squealing like stuck pigs were all cheerleaders for the very war in which Army Captain Humayun Khan became a casualty of. Somehow that doesn’t merit even a passing mention in what has been a category five propaganda storm.
Khan, according to Intelius as also reported by Walid Shoebat, used to work at the law firm Hogan Lovells, LLP, a major D.C. law firm that has been on retainer as the law firm representing the government of Saudi Arabia in the United States for years. Citing federal government disclosure forms, the Washington Free Beacon reported the connection between Saudi Arabia and Hogan Lovells a couple weeks ago.
“Hogan Lovells LLP, another U.S. firm hired by the Saudis, is registered to work for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia through 2016, disclosures show,” Joe Schoffstall of the Free Beacon reported.
The federal form filed with the Department of Justice is a requirement under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, which makes lobbyists and lawyers working on behalf of foreign governments and other agents from abroad with interests in the United States register with the federal government.
The government of Saudi Arabia, of course, has donated heavily to the Clinton Foundation.
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has given between $10 and $25 million to the foundation while Friends of Saudi Arabia has contributed between $1 and $5 million,” Schoffstall wrote.

Perhaps the prospect that the establishment’s newest martyr may have had some murky dealings with the Kingdom – which has cultivated a huge lobbying presence in America – could stop this massive hit job on Trump dead in it’s tracks so we can move on to an actual discussion of the issues. At any rate, Khan seems to be having buyer’s remorse over becoming a legitimate political target and according to a piece in The Daily Caller “Anti-Trump Father Of Muslim Soldier Wants Out Of The Spotlight, He Says In TV Interview”:
Khizr Khan, the father of fallen Muslim-American soldier Captain Humayun Khan said on Monday after criticizing Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention and in multiple television interviews since then that he wants to be “out of this controversy.”
In yet another television appearance on CNN, this time on “New Day,” prior to espousing his desire to get out of the spotlight, Khan doubled down on his critical comments of Trump claiming the Republican nominee was ignorant and arrogant.
Since his speech at the DNC last Thursday, Khan, along with his wife Ghazala have appeared on multiple TV networks including ABC, MSNBC, and CNN. The Trump campaign has directly responded to Mr. Khan’s comments on Twitter, in television interviews, and through statements.
In the Khans’ latest television interview, host John Berman said that Trump’s supporters would argue that “since you have exercised your First Amendment rights, you’re now fair game. It is now fair game for Donald Trump to talk about you and his supporters to talk about you. You spoke at the Democratic Convention, which is a political platform.”
Whether he understands it or not, Khan and his wife were cynically used by the Democrats and the Clinton machine which continues to push the envelope for rank political scumbaggery on a daily basis. The loss of their child on the battlefield is a terrible thing to endure and it’s only human that there would be lingering bitterness and such feelings would naturally make one susceptible to charlatans looking for a dupe to exploit as a pawn. One story from the Hill goes so far as to say that Khan was “tricked” by the Democrats into attacking Trump and then becoming the face of their latest coordinated smear campaign against the Republican nominee.
Now that Mr. Khan is going to be the target of political blowback it’s going to be interesting to see whether the establishment doubles down or throws him under the bus now that he has served his purpose.
