Republican official resigns after
questioning the contributions
of Muslims to the ‘fabric’ of
America in Facebook post

Daily Mail [UK], by Francesca Chambers

A Virginia Republican Party official resigned Wednesday night over a post he made on Facebook questioning Muslims´ contributions to the ´fabric´ of America. The post was a critique of President Barack Obama´s statement that the Muslim holiday Eid-al-Fitr ´reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. ´ ´It is one thing to be gracious on religous holidays, but this is pure nonsense,´ Bob FitzSimmonds, the unelected Treasurer of the Republican Party of Virginia, said in a comment accompanying Obama´s quote. ´Exactly what part of our

What a gutless wonder! Why not stand up for truth?
The question was legitimate and asked by Americans all over the Country.
Obama insulted us and this should have been a big issue Nationwide.

No doubt the moslems will continue to contribute to the fabric of our society by beheading him.
It is not surprising but it is disheartening that someone can be fired for telling an obvious truth.

He apologized in the letter for bringing unwanted attention to the RPV, but refused to retract his offending statement.

´It is historically accurate, was a valid criticism of the President’s revisionist history, and not a statement on Muslim involvement in modern day America,´ he said.


FitzSimmonds is better off away from the Virgina Republican Party. Free-thinkers not allowed.

I have said it many times. The GOP lives in fear of the media and the spin on anything they say. This is why they come off so spineless. Anyone who dare speak the truth is told to shut up for fear of giving ammo to the MSM and the dims for attack. They are trying to avoid fumbling the ball.

But is this any way to run a country? Will our side be liberated after November, assuming we win big? Not likely. We´ll continue to cower in fear until we get some control over the MSM.

Might be interesting to see what links there are from this incident to the puppet wires held by Grover Norquist and his Islamofascist buddies. It´s not just the Dhimmicrats that are tied to the heathens, there are more than a few Rethuglicans as well.
Another of a host of reasons it is 3rd party time.

In a shocking let down of security, two men managed to breach into the White House in two separate incidents within a 24-hour period, causing the building to be evacuated. In the first incident on Friday night, 42-year-old Omar Gonzalez of Coperas Cove, Texas, jumped the fence just minutes after US President Barack Obama, his daughter and her friend boarded a helicopter on the South Lawn, reports USA Today. Gonzalez, who was unarmed, was only tackled by security after managing to get inside the doors of the North Portico, the entrance facing Pennsylvania Avenue.[Snip] Then a second man on Saturday

Syrian nuclear activities divide global

Western states defeated a Russian proposal on Friday to remove Syria´s alleged past nuclear activities from the agenda of meetings of the UN atomic agency, diplomats said. But in a vote that highlighted how polarizing the global political debate has become, China supported Russia´s initiative while only about half of the nations on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board - 17 out of 35 - voted against. Western diplomats argued that Damascus should be kept under pressure to cooperate with the IAEA´s long-stalled inquiry, even though this has hardly advanced in the last three years as the country descended into bloodshed.

A Mexican ecologist has blown the whistle on the corruption, lies and incompetence of the wind industry - and on the massive environmental damage it causes in the name of saving the planet. Patricia Mora, a research professor in coastal ecology and fisheries science at the National Institute of Technology in Mexico, has been studying the impact of wind turbines in the Tehuantepec Isthmus in southern Mexico, an environmentally sensitive region which has the highest concentration of wind farms in Latin America. The turbines, she says in an interview with Truthout, have had a disastrous effect on local flora and

Eric Frein, one of the FBI´s most wanted and the man authorities say killed a Pennsylvania state trooper last week, may soon be apprehended. For a second night, authorities on Friday closed roads near a home where a suspect in the ambush killing of a Pennsylvania State Police trooper recently lived with his parents, and this time gunfire was reported in the area. The shots were fired in the area around 6:40 p.m. Friday, a Monroe County 911 dispatcher said. State police told residents in the townships of Price and Barrett to stay inside and asked others not to travel to the area

The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from August 23 through September 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion. The urge to sever ties with Washington cuts across party lines and regions, though Republicans and residents of rural Western

The Metropolitan Opera has sunk to a new low in its glorification of the Palestinian terrorist murder of wheelchair-bound Leon Klinghoffer, on the Achille Lauro in 1995, say outraged Jewish groups. In its promotional materials, including a video on its official website, the Metropolitan Opera features a Palestinian terrorist pointing a gun at the back of a wheel-chair bound Klinghoffer, when he is about to murder him. “The Met Opera is clearly trying to sell tickets off of an evil Palestinian terrorist who is in the process of murdering a crippled Jew in the back in cold-blood” said Mark Langfan,

The U.S. Senate unanimously adopted the United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act on Thursday evening, reports JNS. The bipartisan bill, which declares Israel to be a “major strategic partner,” was authored by Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) and had 81 co-sponsors. [Snip] Besides generally elevating the status of the U.S.-Israel relationship, the bill expands the Jewish state’s trade status to expedite export licensing, increases cooperation on energy and other technologies, maintains Israel’s qualitative military edge in the Middle East, and increases U.S. weapons stockpiles in Israel as well as Israeli access to them.

Cameron vows to push through ´English

David Cameron this morning skewered Labour leader Ed Miliband with a pledge to introduce ´English votes for English laws´ after Scotland rejected independence. The Prime Minister said Scotland had had its say and it was now time to listen to the ´millions of voices of England´ by banning Scottish MPs voting on English-only laws. [Snip] Mr Miliband ducked the issue in his first response to the ´No´ referendum victory this morning--only declaring that he supported ´devolution´ in England. But Labour MPs are split on the issue, in a stand-off which threatens to derail the Government´s timetable for devolving further powers

GLASGOW, United Kingdom--As Scotland votes on independence, in a campaign led by Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond and a coterie of advisors, few can claim more influence than Member of the Scottish Parliament Humza Yousaf. [Snip] We know he studied politics in his hometown of Glasgow, and according to the Guardian he became involved in politics just after 9/11. He was firmly opposed to the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and was prolific in the Stop The War movement, helping to organise coaches from Glasgow Central Mosque to the two million strong rally against the war in Iraq.

Alex Salmond’s dream of independence has been shattered after Scotland voted to stay part of the United Kingdom. Scotland today rejected independence and voted to remain part of the United Kingdom at the end of the most intense political campaign the country has ever seen. The silent majority finally raised its voice on a tense yet utterly compelling night of political history. During a referendum that attracted record numbers of voters and was hailed as a triumph of democracy, the people voted to maintain the 307-year Union. A decisive No vote was the culmination of two and a half-years of

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam.

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed. The French famously said “non” in 2003 when President Bush
