David Mamet had a famous saying, essentially: …‘in order for genuine liberals to continue their illogical belief systems they have to pretend not to know a lot of things’… By pretending not to know, there is no attachment to any adverse consequences. In essence, liberalism maintained -in the face of overwhelming empirical evidence- requires feelings […]
True Pundit personnel, who have served in varying intelligence capacities and agencies for the United States, were floored this morning when combing the Wikileaks database of John Podesta emails.
Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, in a Feb. 9, 2016 email makes reference to an assassination. Using the term “wet work,” Podesta sent a cryptic email to Democratic strategist and heavyweight consultant Steve Elmendorf. The term “wet work” is an intelligence slang term with Russian roots. Defined it means to assassinate a public figure, diplomat or someone of political note.
Elmendorf replied to Podesta’s mysterious reference:
“I am all in Sounds like it will be a bad nite , we all need to buckle up and double down”
- No autopsy
- No medical examiner on site to decipher cause of death
- No U.S. Marshal protection detail accompanying Scalia
- No functioning CCTV cameras on day of death
- Scalia found clothed on bed with pillow over face
- Scalia’s body mysteriously cremated before it could be examined
- Resort owner large Obama contributor
- And the list goes on and on
We are not alleging Podesta or Elmendorf played a role in Scalia’s death. That is a large leap and making such a leap is how news sites get a reputation for spreading conspiracy theories. But neither are doing themselves any favors by discussing the topic via email either. And the timing cannot be ignored, even by partisan detectives. Simply put: The optics look very bad.
When public officials and Beltway insiders, especially those working for Hillary Clinton, start and correspond to an assassination-themed email thread, they open themselves up wide for criticisms. Likewise this is the definition of poor judgment by both parties, discussing anything related, jokingly or not, to assassination. Podesta, after all, is running a campaign for the presidency of the United States and therefore his communications are held to a higher standard. And in a functioning Republic where law and order prevail, the FBI would want some answers too to the questions were are posing here. Any competent investigator would, based on the troubling timing alone. But, not Director James Comey’s FBI. Not this FBI.
Just a week ago it seemed likewise unbelievable that Clinton would seek to kill Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange with a military drone per True Pundit. The main stream media quickly labeled the meticulously-documented report as just another right-wing conspiracy ginned up to boost Donald Trump. Until Clinton said she couldn’t recall calling for Assange’s alleged assassination.
If Scalia was in fact murdered, it will remain a secret under this current regime and a subsequent Clinton presidency. That’s not a conspiracy theory.

Green party presidential candidate Jill Stein says Donald Trump is less scary on foreign wars, because he wants to work with Russia.
JILL STEIN: It’s important to look at where we are going. It’s not just a moment in time, but where has the strategy of voting for the lesser evil you will taken us? All these times you have been told to but for the lesser evil because you didn’t want the wars, or the meltdown of the climate, or the offshoring of our jobs, or the attack on immigrants or the massive bailout for Wall Street, that is actually what we have gotten. By the droves.
Because we with public interest allow ourselves to be silent and voted for the lesser evil. But the lesser evil doesn’t solve the problem.
The Obama administration, even with both houses of Congress, actually did all of these fossil fuel emissions. “All of the above” gave us some renewable energy but it completely amplified and intensified our film production, which has been incredibly destructive to the climate.
The wars have gotten bigger, we are not bombing seven countries.
It is important to not just look at the rhetoric but also look at the track record and the reality is the lesser people and greater people is a race to the bottom, and even Donald Trump in the right wing extremism grows out of the policies of the Clintons, in particular Nafta, which sent our jobs overseas and Wall Street deregulation, which blew 9 million jobs up into smoke.
That is what is creating this right wing extremism. A vote for Hillary Clinton isn’t going to fix it…
It is now Hillary Clinton that wants to start an air war with Russia over Syria by calling for a no fly zone.
We have 2000 nuclear missiles on hair trigger alert. They are saying we are closer to a nuclear war than we have ever been.
Under Hillary Clinton, we could slide into nuclear war very quickly from her declared policy in Syria.
I sure won’t sleep well at night if Donald Trump is elected, but I sure won’t sleep well at night if Hillary Clinton elected. We have another choice other than these two candidates who are both promoting lethal policies.
On the issue of war and nuclear weapons, it is actually Hillary’s policies which are much scarier than Donald Trump who does not want to go to war with Russia.
He wants to seek modes of working together, which is the route that we need to follow not to go into confrontation and nuclear war with Russia.

Do the secrets of the ancient past prophecy a LANDSLIDE VICTORY for Donald TRUMP?
The truth is there are prophecy a plenty surrounding this Trump vs. Clinton 2016 election (Trump v Clinton 2016 presidential election). The bulk of prophecy focuses on Trump…. Donald Trump…. a man (Trump) commonly now seen (in prophecy circles) as a “modern “Cyrus”.
We delve into the heart of prophecy looking at the mathematical enigmas surrounding Trump, the ancient texts eerily seeming to foreshadow Trump, the financial Trump coincidences & property Trump coincidences that appear to match with ancient records… from both the Bible and Babylon.
Begging the question, can mysteries from some 2,500 years in our past actually be a foreshadowing of the future of the United States, and even possibly predict a LANDSLIDE victory for Donald Trump. As absurd as this could easily sound, the journey through the prophecy of the past and comparisons with Donald Trump may — at minimum — astound you?
Further we take a ride through the mathematics surrounding Trump — which again strangely stretches from the ancient past (of King Cyrus, no-less) to modern day…. again seeming to fascinatingly encircle Donald Trump.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 29, 2016
Somali American Ilhan Omar defeated 22-term incumbent Phyllis Kahn for the nomination of the DFL to serve as the representative of House District 60B in the state legislature. Omar came in first in a three-way primary race for the nomination in Tuesday’s primary. When elected, Omar will be the first Somali American to serve in the Minnesota legislature.
A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar is depicted with Hirsi and their children on Omar’s campaign website here.
The post further notes that Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, implying that the latter marriage assisted his entry into the United States. Her brother was a British citizen. “As soon as Ilhan Omar married him,” the post continues, “he started university at her [a]lma mater North Dakota State University where he graduated in 2012. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Minneapolis where he was living in a public housing complex and was later evicted. He then returned to the United Kingdom where he now lives.”
Let me note here that Omar’s marriage to her brother, if it occurred in fact, is illegal under Minnesota law. I believe it would be void ab initio, as though it never occurred. If it occurred, I infer that it must have taken place for dishonest purposes.
The Somalispot post has been taken down. The item was originally posted here; it is preserved in a Google cache here with accompanying comments. Comments on the Somalispot post suggest that the information is something of an open secret in the Somali community. Inputting the name Ilhan Omar, I have confirmed both marriages as noted in the Somalispot post via the online Minnesota Official Marriage System.
After confirming the marital information online, I reached out to Omar press spokesman Jean Heyer and Omar campaign manager Dan Cox this morning. I left voicemail messages with both of them explaining why I was calling and subsequently sent them the following email message:
I left a voicemail message for you this morning…I write for the website Power Line (powerlineblog.com). This is to request a comment by the close of business today on the information posted on Somalispot last week indicating that Ilhan Omar was married to her brother in 2009 following her marriage to Ahmed Aden (Hirsi) in 2002.
I assume you are familiar with the post. I am inserting the URL to the Google cache of it below my contact information.
I have related questions. Why did she marry her brother? Was the marriage to her first husband legally dissolved? If so, when?
Thank you for your courtesies.
Jean Heyer emailed me late this morning politely thanking me for my email message. Heyer advised me that Omar was out of town and that they would be in touch with me this afternoon. I responded:
Thank you for this timely response. Just fyi, I emailed my message to Dan Cox as well. I would appreciate a written statement[.]
As I think about this, assuming the information I have is correct, it seems to me that the marriage to her brother would be void ab initio and entered into solely for dishonest purposes. I would appreciate your addressing that as well.
This afternoon I received the following email message from Minneapolis criminal defense attorney Jean Brandl on behalf of Omar:
Dear Mr. Johnson:
I have been contacted by the Ilhan Omar campaign. Their response to your email from this morning is as follows:
“There are people who do not want an East African, Muslim woman elected to office and who will follow Donald Trump’s playbook to prevent it. Ilhan Omar’s campaign sees your superfluous contentions as one more in a series of attempts to discredit her candidacy.
Ilhan Omar’s campaign will not be distracted by negative forces and will continue to focus its energy on creating positive engagement with community members to make the district and state more prosperous and equitable for everyone.”
If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please direct them to me in writing so we have a record of any further communications.
The Omar campaign’s shoddy imputations of my motives speak loudly for themselves, but let me add that I find them disgusting. Putting the shoddy imputations to one side, however, I take Brandl’s message to be the confirmation of a major local story with national implications in light of Omar’s “historic” victory.
Scott Johnson, the author of the Powerline story states in his article that Omar’s marriage to her brother, if it had occurred, is illegal under Minnesota law. Johnson says in the article, “I believe it would be void ab initio, as though it never occurred. If it occurred, I infer that it must have taken place for dishonest purposes.”
If she did indeed marry her brother, any such second marriage might be bigamous as well as fraudulent, but it is not clear,” Johnson wrote. Minnesota law defines bigamy as “knowingly having a prior marriage that is not dissolved while also contracting a marriage in this state.” Bigamy is a punishable crime, with up to five years in prison or a fine up to $10,000. The definition and penalty for the crime of bigamy are found in Minn. Stat. § 609.355.
Johnson has confirmed the marriages as noted in the Minnesota Official Marriage system:
Johnson contacted Omar’s press spokesperson Jean Heyer and campaign manager Dan Cox and left them a voicemail asking why Omar married her brother and if her first marriage was legally dissolved and when.
Heyer responded to Johnson telling him that Omar was out of town and that Heyer would be in touch with him. Johnson then responded back telling Heyer that if the information he has about Omar is correct, that her marriage to her brother would be void and was entered into for dishonest purposes and asked that Heyer address those questions as well.

But again, as secretary of state, she changed her tune.
“We think it’s strongly in the interests of both Colombia and the United States,” Clinton said two years later. “And I return very invigorated … to begin a very intensive effort to try to obtain the votes to get the free trade agreement finally ratified.”
McAuliffe, a close political ally of the Clintons, expressed confidence that Hillary Clinton would ultimately support passage of the TPP, despite claiming to oppose the trade deal during her primary battle with Senator Bernie Sanders.
“Hillary Clinton has also been the biggest promoter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which will ship millions more of our jobs overseas — and give up Congressional power to an international foreign commission.Now, because I have pointed out why it would be such a disastrous deal, she is pretending that she is against it.”

According to these papers Mrs. Clinton suffers from “Dementia, Seizures and Black-outs.” In fact, the Doctor made note that Clinton’s conditions are “considerably worse” than in 2013. Here are the “leaked” records. I have no idea, judge for yourself…
Subcortical Vascular Dementia. Subcortical vascular dementia, also called Binswanger’s disease, is caused by widespread, microscopic areas of damage to the brain resulting from the thickening and narrowing (atherosclerosis) of arteries that supply blood to the subcortical areas of the brain.
The medical definition above makes clear that Hillary’s condition is also known as “Binswanger’s disease (BD).” We checked with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and they offer the following information:
What is Binswanger’s Disease?
Binswanger’s disease (BD), also called subcortical vascular dementia, is a type of dementia caused by widespread, microscopic areas of damage to the deep layers of white matter in the brain. The damage is the result of the thickening and narrowing (atherosclerosis) of arteries that feed the subcortical areas of the brain. Atherosclerosis (commonly known as “hardening of the arteries”) is a systemic process that affects blood vessels throughout the body. It begins late in the fourth decade of life and increases in severity with age. As the arteries become more and more narrowed, the blood supplied by those arteries decreases and brain tissue dies. A characteristic pattern of BD-damaged brain tissue can be seen with modern brain imaging techniques such as CT scans or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The symptoms associated with BD are related to the disruption of subcortical neural circuits that control what neuroscientists call executive cognitive functioning: short-term memory, organization, mood, the regulation of attention, the ability to act or make decisions, and appropriate behavior. The most characteristic feature of BD is psychomotor slowness – an increase in the length of time it takes, for example, for the fingers to turn the thought of a letter into the shape of a letter on a piece of paper. Other symptoms include forgetfulness (but not as severe as the forgetfulness of Alzheimer’s disease), changes in speech, an unsteady gait, clumsiness or frequent falls, changes in personality or mood (most likely in the form of apathy, irritability, and depression), and urinary symptoms that aren’t caused by urological disease. Brain imaging, which reveals the characteristic brain lesions of BD, is essential for a positive diagnosis.
Is there any treatment?
There is no specific course of treatment for BD. Treatment is symptomatic. People with depression or anxiety may require antidepressant medications such as the serotonin-specific reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) sertraline or citalopram. Atypical antipsychotic drugs, such as risperidone and olanzapine, can be useful in individuals with agitation and disruptive behavior. Recent drug trials with the drug memantine have shown improved cognition and stabilization of global functioning and behavior. The successful management of hypertension and diabetes can slow the progression of atherosclerosis, and subsequently slow the progress of BD. Because there is no cure, the best treatment is preventive, early in the adult years, by controlling risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, and smoking.
What is the prognosis?
BD is a progressive disease; there is no cure. Changes may be sudden or gradual and then progress in a stepwise manner. BD can often coexist with Alzheimer’s disease. Behaviors that slow the progression of high blood pressure, diabetes, and atherosclerosis — such as eating a healthy diet and keeping healthy wake/sleep schedules, exercising, and not smoking or drinking too much alcohol — can also slow the progression of BD.
What research is being done?
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) conducts research related to BD in its laboratories at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and also supports additional research through grants to major medical institutions across the country. Much of this research focuses on finding better ways to prevent, treat, and ultimately cure neurological disorders, such as BD.
Where does this Leave the Election?
No rational person could vote such a sickly individual into the most important political office in the world. To do so would be utterly irresponsible; even outright reckless.
Look, it’s not Hillary’s fault that she’s sick. She didn’t intend to get this way, but she is, in fact, this way. It’s sad. I do not wish these health problems on her or upon anyone. But the fact is, these health problems flatly disqualify Mrs. Clinton from being President. We cannot have a person with Dementia with her finger on the nuclear button.
Watch Hillary freeze up after being startled by a protest sign. Has to be coached back into talking, then starts up about Trump kids killing animals.

Trump Against the World, and He’s Winning – Canada Free Press
A crippling defect in our national psyche makes otherwise reasoning people assume that past noble behavior or past events render some individuals immune to criticism for their current actions. This national weakness plays into the hands of those who would exploit it.
By now, all should know that the Muslim father, Khizr Khan, who attacked Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention, is a proponent of sharia law—the same Islamic law that is diametrically opposed to the Constitution of the United States. Khizr Khan, it seems, is actively working to bring more sharia-compliant Muslims into America. Whatever his intent, sharia-compliant Muslims jeopardize our constitutional freedoms. Besides the article referenced below, others have exposed Khizr Khan, and only useful idiots who choose ignorance are still mouthing his “patriotism.”
I grow weary of hearing about John McCain’s war record every time a legitimate criticism is lodged against his legislative record or ideological positions he has taken. Many men were imprisoned in the war along with John McCain, some for considerably longer. Some of them never returned. Nothing that McCain did or suffered in the past ameliorates present behavior, unless he was mentally impaired by his service, and he was not. And his physical impairment should have no bearing on his commitment to American citizens, given that he chose to serve them as a politician.
That said, I think the way that Khan’s behavior against Trump has been excused out of hand is disgusting. Equally appalling is how establishment types like John McCain are parading their holier-than-thou attitude toward Trump for not pandering to Khan. The vast majority of American families who lost children in war do not worship a faith that extols sharia law. Khan’s embrace of sharia puts him in an entirely different category. One that should be suspect.
Many Americans view Trump’s response to Khan differently from John McCain’s, Rudy Giuliani’s, Newt Gingrich’s, and a host of other politicos and talking-heads. The critics are rushing to tell Trump how he should have handled the situation. For the sake of “focus,” they say he must pretend no other opponents exist except Clinton. Somewhat like saying it’s impossible for a candidate to walk and chew gum at the same time, if he wants to win an election.
Giuliani and Gingrich are both establishment, and established, politicians. Although establishment types, they were astute enough to recognize the will of the people concerning Donald Trump. Even so, both men may well harbor some degree of envy, having failed in their bids for the office Trump is likely to achieve. Additionally, Gingrich displays a large ego; he expects to be heard and heeded. Trump’s team, however, considering they have made it to this point without Gingrich or any other politician like him, is understandably hesitant to embrace his every suggestion. And I’m sure he has offered many. Trump alluded to as much in one of his campaign rallies.Trump’s establishment supporters seem hell bent on criticizing every move that he makes that’s out of line with what they would do.
I see in such behavior something a bit sinister. While cloaked as positive feedback, it seems somewhat of a ploy to turn him into a politician—the very class that so many Americans currently despise. It appears to escape all those taking a critical stance toward how Trump is executing his campaign that the vast majority of Trump’s supporters applaud how he is handling himself. It’s the media and the political class who are disturbed.
Herman Cain, himself a former presidential candidate, explained it as two simultaneous forces: one, the ground campaign, which the masses of voters are supporting and the other, the media-driven campaign, which the masses are ignoring.
The current meme is that the polls tell the story. Trump must listen to his naysayers because the polls say Hillary is outdoing him; the polls say “the race will be very close.” Does anybody not see the numbers of people at Trump’s rallies (in the multiple thousands) and those at Clinton’s rallies (sometimes in the thousands and sometimes only the hundreds)? Because the media (including Fox News) refuse to emphasize this disparity in participation, does not negate the disparity.
Further, has anybody wondered if the polls from media outlets, all of whom oppose Trump, might be intentionally agenda-driven and way off the mark? I certainly have. In the primaries, Trump often overshot the poll estimates. (See a discussion below on polling from The Conservative Treehouse.)
The constant drum beat from politicos is that campaigns have always been done a certain way, and candidates must fall in line. Trump, therefore, must become the typical politician or he will surely lose the race. Never mind that following the old play book has not worked very well for Republican presidential candidates in the recent past.
My humble opinion is that this race will not be close. I think a majority of Americans now fully understand what’s going on. Arrayed against Donald Trump, they see progressive globalists from outside the country and within (establishment types in both parties, what some call the “UniParty”); an incredibly corrupt Democrat party and corrupt candidate in Hillary Clinton; an extraordinarily hostile, mediocre media devoid of journalistic principles; and those large egos among his “supporters” who will be taken down a notch if Trump succeeds in doing it his way and not theirs.
What Donald Trump has in his arsenal are the American people who have reached their wit’s end, and that is an even more formidable force.

Khan’s website for his own personal law firm KM Khan Law Office shows he represents clients in the business of buying visas to enter the United States. One of his specific areas of practice, according to the website, is “E2 Treaty Investors, EB5 Investments & Related Immigration Services.”
Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the U.S. Senate’s Judiciary Committee, has detailed how the EB5 immigration program is “riddled with flaws and corruption.”
“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.”
From there, Sen. Grassley listed out several of the “flaws” with the EB5 immigration program that Khan works in:
– Investments can be spent before business plans are approved.
– Regional Center operators can charge exorbitant fees of foreign nationals in addition to their required investments.
– Jobs created are not “direct” or verifiable jobs but rather are “indirect” and based on estimates and economic modeling.
– Jobs created by U.S. investors are counted by the foreign national when obtaining a green card, even if EB-5 money is only a fraction of the total invested.
– Investment funds are not adequately vetted.
– Gifts and loans are acceptable sources of funds from foreign nationals.
– The investment level has been stagnant for nearly 25 years.
– There’s no prohibition against foreign governments owning or operating regional centers or projects.
– Regional centers can be rented or sold without government oversight or approval.
– Regional centers don’t have to certify that they comply with securities laws.
– There’s no oversight of promoters who work overseas for the regional centers.
– There’s no set of sanctions for violations, no recourse for bad actors.
– There are no required background checks on anyone associated with a regional center.
– Regional centers draw Targeted Employment Area boundaries around poor areas in order to come in at a lower investment level, yet the jobs created are not actually created in those areas.
– Every Targeted Employment Area designation is rubberstamped by the agency.
– Adjudicators are pressured to get to a yes, especially for those politically connected.
– Visas are not properly scrutinized.
– Visas are pushed through despite security warnings.
– Files and applications lack basic and necessary information to monitor compliance.
– The agency does not do site visits for each and every project.
– There’s no transparency on how funds are spent, who is paid, and what investors are told about the projects they invest in.

Here is more updated followup on the developing story:
Hillary Clinton’s chief Muslim surrogate, Khizr Khan, the celebrated Gold Star father whose son, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan was killed in Iraq in 2004, appeared recently on a pro-Taliban Pakistani television network to bash Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Khizr Khan appeared on Pakistan’s Dunya News TV network on August 4. Khan said during the interview, “Allah makes people like Trump make mistakes to discredit them in public eyes forever.”
Khan held up a pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution to accuse Trump of violating it.
However, by invoking the name of Allah to criticize Trump, Khan, himself, was violating the constitutional spirit of the separation of church (or mosque) and state.
Khan told CNN’s Anderson Cooper the day after his appearance on Dunya News that he and his wife would no longer be making television appearances because it was “emotionally draining.”
Perhaps, Khan’s appearance on a pro-Taliban television network in Pakistan was also emotionally draining to the relatives of those killed in attacks by the Taliban and its allies in Al Qaeda, including the over 3000 people killed in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania on 9/11.
Khizr Khan is a graduate of the University of Punjab law school. Mian Amer became notorious at the University of Punjab as a militant for the Jamaat-e-Islami political party’s youth wing, Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT), because of his habit of brandishing guns on campus along with other IJT radicals.
In 1985, Mian Amer founded the Punjab Group of Colleges, which eventually became the University of Central Punjab.
Mian Amer eventually became a strong supporter of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q), as well as a major booster of Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf. Musharraf was a supporter of the Afghan Taliban while it hosted Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda and he is considered a prime suspect in ordering the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.
The IJT promoted the adoption of Sharia law under Musharraf’s regime. The inspirational leader of IJT and its parent Jamaat-e-Islami, Shaykh al-Hadith Maududi, preached that “Everything in the universe is ‘Muslim’ for it obeys Allah by submission to His laws.” He added that the “stars, planets, oceans, rocks, atoms, everything, should actually be considered ‘Muslims.’”
Khan has published papers supporting the supremacy of Islamic law over “man-made” Western law — including the very Constitution he championed in his Democratic National Convention speech attacking GOP presidential nod Donald Trump.
In 1983, for example, Khan wrote a glowing review of a book compiled from a seminar held in Kuwait called “Human Rights In Islam” in which he singles out for praise the keynote address of fellow Pakistani Allah K. Brohi, a pro-jihad Islamic jurist who was one of the closest advisers to late Pakistani dictator Gen. Zia ul-Haq, the father of the Taliban movement.
Khan speaks admiringly of Brohi’s interpretation of human rights, even though it included the right to kill and mutilate those who violate Islamic laws and even the right of men to “beat” wives who act “unseemly.”
As Pakistani minister of law and religious affairs, Brohi helped create hundreds of jihadi incubators called madrassas and restored Sharia punishments, such as amputations for theft and demands that rape victims produce four male witnesses or face adultery charges.
He also made insulting the Muslim prophet Muhammad a crime punishable by death. To speed the Islamization of Pakistan, he and Zia issued a law that required judges to consult mullahs on every judicial decision for Sharia compliance.
In his book review, Khan takes no issue with Brohi’s shocking interpretation of human rights. In fact, he claims Brohi “successfully” explains them and argues his points “convincingly.” (The review, which lists Khan as “director” of an Islamic center in Houston, was published in the Texas International Law Journal.)
“The keynote speech of Dr. A.K. Brohi, former Pakistani minister of legal and religious affairs, is a hallmark in this book,” Khan writes. “It successfully explains the Islamic concepts of ‘right’ and ‘just’ in comparison to their Christian and Judaic counterparts.”
Adds Khan: “Brohi argues convincingly for the establishment of a moral value system before guarantees can be given for any kind of rights. To illustrate the point he notes, ‘There is no such thing as human right in the abstract.’”
In context, Khan concurs that human rights can only be guaranteed through the establishment of Sharia’s moral and legal code.
Khan provides his own advocacy for Sharia law in a separate academic paper titled “Juristic Classification of Islamic Law,” which he also wrote in 1983, while studying in Saudi Arabia.
“The invariable and basic rules of Islamic law are only those prescribed in the Shari’ah,” Khan writes. “All other juridical works… must always be subordinated to the Shari’ah.”
He explains that Sharia is derived from the Quran and Sunnah, and that the Quran “is the absolute authority from which springs the very conception of legality and every legal obligation.”
Khan then notes that Quranic law includes “constitutional law.”
“Family law is laid down in 70 injunctions; civil law in another 70; penal law in 30; jurisdiction and procedure in 13; constitutional law in 10; international relations in 25; and economic and financial order in 10,” he said.
Khan defers to an early Islamic jurist who ruled: “For every issue concerning a Muslim, either there is a binding text (of the Shariah) that rules it, or there is a guidance that may indicate the way to truth. If there is a text, then the Muslim has to follow it.”
A devout Muslim, Khan also cites two notorious Muslim Brotherhood radicals as scholarly sources — Muhammad Hamidullah and Said Ramadan, whom he “gratefully acknowledged.”
Though described by the Clinton camp and media as a “Pakistani-American lawyer,” less known is Khan’s an acknowledged expert on Sharia law doctrine. His 13-page article, which was published in the Houston Journal of International Law, has been cited in dozens of Islamic law articles and has been used in college syllabi for Islamic law courses as recently as 2013.
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.
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.
Trump, of course, has called on Hillary Clinton to have the Clinton Foundation return the money.
“Saudi Arabia and many of the countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays,” Trump wrote in a Facebook post back in June, according to Politico. “Hillary must return all money from such countries!”
“Crooked Hillary says we must call on Saudi Arabia and other countries to stop funding hate,” Trump posted in a separate Facebook posting at the time. “I am calling on her to immediately return the $25 million plus she got from them for the Clinton Foundation!”
Of course, to this day, Hillary Clinton and her Clinton Foundation has kept the money from the Saudi Arabian government.
Schoffstall’s piece in the Washington Free Beacon also notes how Hogan Lovells lobbyist Robert Kyle, per Federal Election Commission (FEC) records, has bundled more than $50,000 in donations for Clinton’s campaign this year.
Khan’s connections with the Hogan Lovells firm run deep, according to a report from Law.com written by Katelyn Polantz.
“Many lawyers at Hogan Lovells remember the week in 2004 when U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan lost his life to a suicide bomber,” Polantz wrote. “Then-Hogan & Hartson attorneys mourned the death because the soldier’s father, Khizr Khan, a Muslim American immigrant, was among their beloved colleagues.”
Polantz wrote that Khan worked at the mega-D.C. law firm for years.
“Khan spent seven years, from 2000 to 2007, in the Washington, D.C., office of then-Hogan & Hartson,” Polantz wrote. “He served as the firm’s manager of litigation technology. Although he did not practice law while at Hogan, Khan was well versed in understanding the American courts system. On Thursday night, he described his late son dreaming of becoming a military lawyer.”
But representing the Clinton Foundation backing Saudi Arabian government and having one of its lobbyists bundle $50,000-plus for Clinton’s campaign are hardly the only places where the Khan-connected Hogan Lovells D.C. mega-firm brush elbows with Clinton Cash.
The firm also handles Hillary Clinton’s taxes and is deeply connected with the email scandal whereby when she was Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton set up a home-brew email server system that jeopardized classified information handling and was “extremely careless” according to FBI director James Comey.
“A lawyer at Hogan & Hartson [Howard Topaz] has been Bill and Hillary Clinton’s go-to guy for tax advice since 2004, according to documents released Friday by Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” The American Lawyer’s Nate Raymond wrote in 2008, as Hillary Clinton ran for president that year. “The Clintons’ tax returns for 2000-07 show combined earnings of $109 million, on which they paid $33 million in taxes. New York-based tax partner Howard Topaz has a broad tax practice, and also regularly advises corporations on M&A and executive compensation.”
Breitbart News’ Patrick Howley, in a deep investigative piece on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, late last year uncovered how Topaz’s firm—which employed Khan while Topaz did Hillary Clinton’s taxes—is also connected to the email scandal.
“Topaz was a partner at Hogan & Hartson, which later merged to become known as Hogan Lovells, where Topaz continues to practice. The firm’s lawyers were major donors to Hillary Clinton’s first presidential campaign,” Howley wrote.
For her private email system, Clinton used a spam filtering program MX Logic.
“Hogan & Hartson handled the patent for MX Logic’s email-filtering program, which McAfee bought the small company for $140 million in 2009 in order to acquire,” Howley wrote. “The MX Logic company’s application for a trademark for its SPAMTRAQ program was filed in 2004 on Hogan & Hartson stationery and signed by a Hogan & Hartson attorney. Hogan & Hartson has been responsible for MX Logic annual reports. The email company’s Clinton links present more evidence that Clinton’s political and legal establishment was monitoring her private email use.”
If that all isn’t enough, that same Hogan & Hartson law firm—now Hogan Lovells—employed Loretta Lynch, the current Attorney General of the United States. Lynch infamously just a few weeks ago met with Bill Clinton, Hillary’s husband and the former president, on her private jet in Phoenix just before clearing Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing when it came to her illicit private email server system.
