Jaguars Owner Shad Khan Made Some Startling Remarks About Jacksonville on Jags Website

  Jaguars Owner Shad Khan Made Some Startling Remarks About Jacksonville on Jags Website The Jaguars have long been considered one of the worst NFL franchises. They don't win games, they don't sell out games, and their fanbase is blasé about them. Still, it's weird to hear their owner admit as much. Even weirder, the comment really isn't getting any attention. In an article on the Jaguars site, Jags oner Shad Khan addressed a wide number of topics, including the "Lot J" project to revamp downtown Jacksonville around TIAA Bank Field and the Jags extending their contract with the NFL to play games in London. But it was what he said in relation to TIAA Bank Field hosting other events like concerts that stood out to me.

Khizr Khan , the soldier’s father, lashed out at Mr. Trump in an interview on Saturday, saying his wife had not spoken at the convention because it was too painful for her to talk about her son’s death. Mr. Trump , he said, “is devoid of feeling the pain of a mother who has sacrificed her son.”

Khizr Muazzam Khan (born 1950) and Ghazala Khan (born 1951) are the Pakistani American parents of United States Army Captain Humayun Khan , who was killed in 2004 during the Iraq War.

Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father of a Muslim American soldier who was killed in the Iraq War in 2004, hit back at comments made by Donald Trump Jr. in his new book, saying the Trump family has "no idea what service and sacrifice is."

In his new book, "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us," Trump Jr. wrote about a trip he and his family made to the Arlington National Cemetery before his father's inauguration in 2017.

During the trip, then-President-elect Trump paid respects to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. While an Army Band bugler played "Taps" in front of the tomb during the visit, Trump Jr. wrote that he reflected on some of the sacrifices his family made so that his father could become president.

One of FBI's Most Wanted fugitives offers surrender

  One of FBI's Most Wanted fugitives offers surrender One of the FBI’s Most Wanted fugitives says he wants to surrender but claims his offers are being ignored by the United States government. Afzal ‘Bobby’ Khan has been on the run since 2014, accused of running a sham luxury car dealership in Ramsey, New Jersey, where he ripped off super-rich clientele and banks.Investigators say Khan, who once appeared on the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" TV show, would get customers to sign off on auto loans priced higher than some houses -- but for some of the sales he didn’t have the car title, and for others he never delivered the car.

“Donald Trump and I believe that Captain Humayun Khan is an American hero and his family , like all Khizr Khan told CNN’s State of the Union Trump was “totally incapable of empathy”, adding: “I Trump was also ridiculed for disputing Khan ’s comment in his speech that Trump had “ sacrificed

Khizr Khan , father of fallen U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan , holds up a copy of the Constitution as his wife listens at the Democratic convention. The war of words between Donald Trump and the family of a slain Muslim-American soldier continued over the weekend, with the Republican nominee suggesting.

"In that moment, I also thought of all the attacks we'd already suffered as a family, and about all the sacrifices we'd have to make to help my father succeed - voluntarily giving up a huge chunk of our business and all international deals to avoid the appearance that we were 'profiting off the office,'" Trump Jr. wrote.

In an interview with MSNBC's Kendis Gibson on Sunday, Khan, whose son Capt. Humayun Khan was buried at the cemetery in Arlington, is pressed for his thoughts on the comments Trump Jr. made in his new book.

In response, Khan, who rose to prominence after an impassioned speech he gave blasting then-presidential candidate Trump at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, said: "I say only one thing, that it's all about business with Donald trump and his family."

Austrian army says soldier mauled to death by service dogs

  Austrian army says soldier mauled to death by service dogs The Austrian army says a 31-year-old soldier appears to have been killed by two service dogs he was tasked with feeding. The army said an officer spotted the two Belgian Shepherd dogs running loose at the barracks south of Vienna early Thursday. The fatally injured staff sergeant was subsequently found inside the dogs’ kennel.An investigation has been launched into the cause of the attack.Austrian public broadcaster ORF quoted a Defense Ministry spokesman saying one of the dogs was an fully trained service dog while the second, aged about six months, was about to undergo training.

The confrontation between the parents, Khizr and Ghazala Khan , and Mr. Trump has emerged as an unexpected and potentially pivotal flash point in the general election. Mr. Trump has plainly struggled to respond to the reproach of a military family who lost a son, and has answered their criticism derisively

Captain Khan was one such brave example. His sacrifice -- and that of Khizr and Ghazala Khan --should always be honored. "Donald Trump and I believe that Captain Humayun Khan is an American hero and his family , like all Gold Star families , should be cherished by every American

"They have no idea what service and sacrifice is when his turn, meaning Donald trump's turn, came to serve , he ran away," Khan continued, adding that Trump's family has "no idea what it takes to be" honorable.

"What does it say to you when somebody says that they've visited and seen those graves there at Arlington and then talks about their business sacrifice?" Gibson asked Khan. "Especially for you, who has a son that's buried there?"

"It's disgusting," Khan continued. "It's shameful, but we don't expect any better from Donald Trump or Donald Trump Jr. because they have sacrificed nothing. They have gained from all of this, holding the office, the highest office that they have corrupted and history is being written.

"And I say this to those who stand beside, stand as [an] enabler of Donald Trump, that history is being written," Khan continued, while also adding: "You could be on the side of this demagogue in the White House or on the side of [the] Constitution."

Khan gained national attention after his speech denouncing Trump at the Democratic National Convention in 2016. At the time, Trump, who was the then-GOP nominee, feuded publicly with Khan, who had attacked him over his stance on immigration.
