A Letter to the Kahn’s

Re-posted with permission


Dear Mr. Khan,

I, like millions of Americans saw your speech at the DNC on Thursday night.

I wish to offer my sympathy for the death of your son, Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed in action in Iraq.

As a former US Army officer, and a veteran of the Gulf War, I can certainly understand the pain and anguish that you and your wife endure every day.

Your son died saving the lives of his fellow soldiers. As Jesus told his disciples, according to the Gospel of John, Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Captain Khan is a hero. I am sure the soldiers he served with regard him as one. I know you and your wife do. Rest assured that millions of veterans regard your son as a hero as well.

To paraphrase from the Book of Ecclesiasticus, your son’s name liveth for evermore.

Your son made the ultimate sacrifice for his country, a country that was new to you and your family and one which you openly embraced and certainly love.

When you and your family arrived to America from Pakistan, you assimilated into our country. You adopted American ways, learned our history and apparently you even acquired a pocket Constitution along the way. Good for you sir.

But, there are many Muslims in America who not only have no desire to assimilate, but wish to live under Sharia Law.

That is unacceptable to Americans. There is only one law of the land. That is the U.S. Constitution.

As you well know, Mr. Khan, we live in violent times, dangerous times. Muslim madmen from ISIS and other radical Jihadi groups are on a murder and terror spree across the globe.

Your religion of peace, Islam, is anything but that in 2016. That is a fact that is confirmed every time a Muslim shoots, bombs, beheads and tortures innocent men, women and children. This does not mean that every Muslim is a terrorist, but most terrorists, sir, are indeed Muslims.

A Muslim terrorist attack has become the sign of the times.

Regardless of what the feckless, naïve, leftist ideologue Barack Obama and his dimwitted colleagues John Kerry, Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel state, the United States and the West are at war with Radical Islam. It is the job of the president of the United States to protect his nation from all enemies; foreign and domestic. Unfortunately, Mr. Obama romanticizes Islam and refuses to accept reality, which has resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent people across the world.

Groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda have one goal, the complete destruction of the Judeo-Christian culture, our religions and our way of life.

Many Americans have families that have been here for decades, even centuries. Many families like mine have relatives who fought in the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and Desert Storm. Some families have relatives who fought in the American Revolution.

We don’t plan on letting our country be devoured by Muslim maniacs. We are Americans sir, and not unarmed, socialist European zombies. We will do what is necessary to protect the United States. While many Democrats and liberals see the world through rose colored glasses, conservatives understand that there is good and evil in this world. Evil must be destroyed before it destroys us.

Strong measures, wartime measures, must be taken to protect this country from those that wish to annihilate us and our way of life.

Mr. Trump’s plan to temporarily halt immigration from Muslim countries that are known to either support terrorism or harbor terrorist groups is not only pragmatic, but indeed it is constitutional. It is the constitutional duty of the president of the United States to protect this nation.

There is simply no way to vet hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees from war zones like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Europe is being destroyed because reckless leaders like Angela Merkel have opened the continent’s doors to a flood of over one million undocumented Muslims arriving with nothing more than a bad attitude and a haversack of Jihad.

Do you think Americans are stupid? While the left lives in a dream world, the right does not. Mr. Trump understands the threat to his nation and the threat, sir, is not from Swedish Lutherans named Anna and Lars. The threat, sir, is from radical Islam.

How in God’s name are U.S. immigration authorities supposed to know the true intentions of a 22-year-old Syrian man? It is impossible. You know it is impossible.

How in God’s name are U.S. immigration authorities supposed to know the true intentions of hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees and thousands of other sundry Muslims who wish to arrive on our shores?

It is impossible. You know it is impossible.

Whether you, your wife, the Muslim world and millions of Democrats are offended by Mr. Trump’s realistic view of the world is irrelevant.

Whether you, your wife and son would have been prohibited from emigrating from Pakistan to America under Mr. Trump’s wartime plan is irrelevant. The security of this great land supersedes your desires and the desires of others who wish to come here now. The United States of America has no obligation to open its doors in order to placate foreigners and liberals in our government.

To adopt any other course but Mr. Trump’s would be a cause for further endangering the lives of Americans every day. That, sir, is unacceptable.

You attacked Mr. Trump in front of a worldwide audience, yet you can’t understand the fact that he defends himself against attacks from you, Hillary Clinton and the left. What else is one to do sir?

We must live in a world of reality, not a world of denial, delusion and fantasy the Democrats inhabit every waking day of their lives.

Radical Islam is the enemy of everyone on this planet who believes in freedom and justice. Until it is destroyed, this nation must protect itself from enemies both foreign and domestic.

    Well said, Mr. Starmann!
    And Kudos to Post Scripts for passing this along!

  2. Tina says:


    I hope Starmann will see fit to advise President Trump in like fashion.

  3. Pie Guevara says:

    Anyone who claims that Islam does not breed terrorists is either a liar or a fool.
    Terrorists have not “hijacked” Islam, they believe — and have been encouraged to believe by Islamic fundamentalists — that their jihad is a righteous cause for Allah and his prophet Mohamed. Their cause is taken directly from the Koran and other Islamic texts.

    Anyone who claims that Islam does not breed barbarism, intolerance, brutality, misogyny, homophobia, and religious suppression has never lived in an Islamic country and has turned a blind eye to Islamic born social upheaval and strife in Europe.

    Which will prevail? The emergence of a peaceful Islam fleeing the violence and barbarism of their own Islamic creation, or the violent, intolerant, totalitarian Islam0-fascism that dominates the Middle East and is has re-emerged in Turkey?

  4. Pie Guevara says:

    Off Topic …

    Obama’s Cash For Hostages — 400 million dollars sent to Iran as hostages were freed. Parse that carefully. It is an exchange. Like $20 handed to cash register person for a rib roast.

    No need for a link, you will read about it soon enough. Just visit Drudge.

    Of course, this is small potatoes compared to the rest of Obama’s Iran “deal.” (Rigorously those should be single quotes to indicate sarcasm and emphasis, but I prefer double quotes.)

    Have you had enough of Democrats yet? Have you had enough of their political and policy poison?

  5. Harold says:


    I believe this article or one similar has been posted prior. It needs to be remembered, the Khan family are not what they have been made out to be, they are in fact just one more puppet of misdirection coming from the Clintons mantra of lie and win at any cost.

    When a foundation of something like Hillary platform is just braced by one lie after
    another, and you blindly climb on board, be ready for a sudden collapse, hopefully it will happen before she can do more harm to America.

    • Tina says:

      Harold this man and his wife were definitely embedded in the convention for a purpose…attack Donald Trump.

      Donald Trump responded by first praising the family and their son but the unethical left-wing media skipped over that to pile on to the attack issued by mr. Kahn who accused Trump in the most demeaning themes, hes unpatriotic and unaware of the Constitution. On what grounds were these charges put forth? Was it the fact that Trump has suggested strong measures to deal with the mess Obama and Hillary have made?

      Donald Trump, like most Americans, is acutely aware of the failures of the current administration to fight terrorism and keep Americans safe. He’s adamant that we must figure out what the heck is going on before allowing foreigners from terror torn countries into our nation. Democrats with the help of their press don;t get it…or they do get it and know that it would be sound practice compared to the open borders, negotiate with terrorists, seel arms to terrorists policies of the Obama administration. they know that unless they convince Americans that Trump is worse than people that have sold out our country Hillary will lose.

      We should all be disgusted beyond all measure that any American would even consider voting for an unethical, dishonest, deceiving woman that has contributed so much to making this a more dangerous world. The excuses they make and the accusations they make are ridiculous.

      • Libby says:

        “Harold this man and his wife were definitely embedded in the convention for a purpose…attack Donald Trump.”

        Like the Benghazi mother at the RNC? Hillary took it much more graciously, I have to say, and did not attack the bereaved.

        What kind of person would do that?

        • Post Scripts says:

          She didn’t have to attack, the leftwing media did it for her or they just glossed over it. Comparing the two incidents its quite telling that we no longer have any journalistic integrity. its all partisan.

  6. J. Soden says:

    At the risk of offending Roger’s sensibilities, it’s coming out that Kahn isn’t quite the paragon that the moron media presstitutes would have us believe:


    And there’s no doubt in my mind that his DNC speech was crafted by $hrilLIARy’s subordinates.

  7. Tina says:

    J, this stuff is falling out so fast it’s impossible to keep up! Your Breitbart link exposes information I had not read and it deserves extra sunlight:

    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.”

    Thanks for sharing it with our readers.

  8. Libby says:

    “This does not mean that every Muslim is a terrorist, but most terrorists, sir, are indeed Muslims.”

    Only recently. Those Christians and Hindus have done their share.

    The situation is quite similar to the anti-gay Christian kerfuffle in this country, where some Christians say it’s totally cool to discriminate against homosexuals (as indeed, the Bible also countenances wife-beating and slavery), but other Christians are certain Jesus would be appalled at any such idea.

    And … the Islamism isn’t even the issue. The issue is that the man dared criticise The Donald, and The Donald can’t let it go. The Donald is a walking, talking personality disorder. You really gonna put one of those in the Oval Office?

    • Tina says:

      Problem is his opponent is a pathological liar who leaves disaster in her wake, never looks back, always blames someone or something else, and is willing to destroy women to cover for her horndog husband…very un-PC and anti-feminist.. She can’t be moderated, controlled, or advised. I definitely don’t want one of those in the oval office, especially since some of the people voting for her are doing it cause she wee wee’s in the little girls room.

      • Libby says:

        Not pathological, but opportunistic … calculated. Which is to say she has control over herself. This puts her one up on The Donald.

        • Tina says:

          Sheriff Clark, “Hillary Clinton a ‘Morally Bankrupt,’ ‘Pathological Liar’ — ‘Her Ethical Elevator Has No Bottom Floor’

          The American Spectator, “Shut It Down: The Clinton Foundation Is Too Corrupt to Exist”:

          In December 2008, Bruce Lindsey, the Chief Executive Officer of the Clinton Foundation, and Valerie Jarrett, co-chairman of the Obama-Biden Transition Team, signed a memorandum of understanding that the activities of the Clinton Foundation would not “create conflicts or the appearance of conflicts for Senator Clinton as Secretary of State.”

          During Secretary Clinton’s tenure, at least 181 individuals, companies, and foreign governments gave money to the Clinton Foundation while officially lobbying the State Department.

          From 2001 to 2015, the Clinton Foundation raised over $2 billion in donations. From February 2001 to May 2015, Bill Clinton gave 637 speeches and made $132,021,691 in speaking fees alone. Hillary gave 92 speeches from February 2013 to March 2015. She was paid $21,648,000. While the Clintons made speeches to Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, it was the foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation that were the most disturbing. …

          …As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton attempted a reset with Russia. One of the more interesting ideas was to create a Russian Silicon Valley in Skolkovo, which is just outside of Moscow. The idea was that Russia needed to modernize its economy and not rely so much on oil revenues.

          Instead of helping Russians modernize their economy, Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg, and other Russian donors to the Clinton Foundation, used this project to improve Russian military technology. Despite repeated warnings of Russians developing hypersonic cruise-missile engines, new radar equipment, and acquiring other sensitive technology from the West, the State Department did not threaten to pull these companies out of the project if the Russians didn’t stop using Skolkovo for military research.

          Control? No…conniving, lying, deceitful, self interested wrecking ball.

  9. Tina says:

    Great line from Coulter in her article, The Wrath of Kahn:

    If the U.S. Constitution required us to admit more than 100,000 Muslims a year — as we do — we’d already be living in Pakistan, and Khan wouldn’t have had to move to get that nice feeling of home. So the “argument” part of Khan’s point is gibberish.

    • Pie Guevara says:

      More Coulter from The Wrath of Kahn —

      We’ve admitted 2 million Muslims just since 9/11 – that’s more than had been admitted before 9/11. If we don’t make it 3 million, we’re monsters? May we ask how many Muslims Khan’s mystery Constitution requires — or is that out of bounds unless we had a child who died in Iraq?

      Apparently, sending out a victim to make their argument was the only option left for the “Make America Muslim!” crowd.

      After Trump somehow got the crazy idea that a presidential candidate was allowed to discuss government policies and proposed a temporary ban on Muslim immigration — which, by the way, is perfectly constitutional — the entire media and political class erupted in a sputtering rage.

  10. Tina says:

    “Sputtering rage” aimed at Trump is their job now.

    Would that we could illicit even raised eyebrows from them over Hillary’s many failures, lies, and crimes.

    Today she said she would tax the middle class and the crowd cheered. Was it a slip of the tongue or a mistake and if so will we see sputtering rage follow?

    Next up, Hillary the (vicious) scared victim frightened by animal rights protesters at HER rally. Several SS agents (MEN) rushed to assure and protect her…then she claimed “…they must be here to protest Trump (yeah right) because Trump and his kids have killed a lot of little animals.”

    This, they claim, is presidential.

    (Listen to the harsh sounding voice (Okay, Here we Rrrrr, cackle, cackle)…can’t imagine four years of that!
