Gun-toting Christian mom admits to cheating on combat vet husband with Tea Party staffer

Published

A gun-toting conservative who made news last summer for posting photos of herself that many thought resembled a Palestinian suicide bomber has admitted to cheating on her combat veteran husband with a former Tea Party staffer.

Holly Fisher became a social media phenomenon in July after posting a pair of photos showing her holding a variety of conservative totems – a Bible, AR-15 rifle, a Chick-fil-A cup, and wearing a pro-life T-shirt.

“ATTENTION LIBERALS: do NOT look at this picture,” Fisher posted on her Twitter account. “Your head will most likely explode.”

She wasn’t happy when commenters on Reddit noticed the similarities between the second image and a photo of a Gaza suicide bomber known as the “White Widow,” who was seen holding an assault rifle and a Koran.

Conservative provocateur Charles C. Johnson recently contacted Fisher after hearing rumors that she had engaged in an extramarital affair last fall with Joel Frewa, then a video editor with the Tea Party News Network.

In a screen capture of their text conversation, Fisher strongly denies having an affair and asks Johnson why he would publish that information when the country is “literally going to hell.”

“Look, I have multiple people saying this and I have the messages your husband wrote,” Johnson said. “Do you want to stop lying?”

Fisher admitted to the affair less than an hour later in a Facebook post, saying she had been overwhelmed by the media attention but had since reconciled with her husband.

“In the overwhelming mess of the political spotlight and trying to find myself and where I belong, I actually completely lost myself,” she said in the post. “I lost my faith in my marriage, I lost my faith in this life that not only I’ve chosen for myself, but a life that I promote. Happy military wife with kids and church and happy, happy, happy. False. My life crumbled. My marriage crumbled. I lost my faith in God.”

The affair allegedly took place during the Restoring the Dream event, a Faith and Freedom conference, and on Election night.

“I didn’t know where I was going to go next or what I was going to do,” Fisher said on Facebook. “For a very short period in the middle of that, I actually believed my marriage was over and found someone else.”

Frewa later resigned from the Tea Party News Network, and the conservative blogger Johnson claims it was after rumors of the affair leaked.

He denied the relationship to Johnson and told the blogger he didn’t have permission to quote him or to identify him as an employee of Tea Party News Network.

Johnson demanded an apology for lying from Fisher on Twitter, but she declined to do so.

She posted another message on Facebook saying the experience had humbled her, but she would continue promoting a message of conservative family values.

“I will continue to fight for the unborn and the Constitution, just like I always have, and I will continue to share my imperfect journey as a Christian, just like I always have,” Fisher said. “I don’t condone my own actions or excuse them, but I have forgiven myself for them and I will be moving forward.”

Conservative columnist tells Trump make good on his threats with Iran or ‘shut up’

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to back down last week when it came to an attack on Iran after an oil tanker was allegedly fired upon and the country shot down a U.S. drone during surveillance.

Republicans and even Trump himself has mocked former President Barack Obama for drawing a "red line" for Syria but being unwilling to act further. In Obama's case, the president saw the country cross the red line and asked Congress to give him a declaration of war. Republicans refused at the time.

Social network for knitting banned Trump talk and white supremacists — making other sites look cowardly

Published

on

Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers, the website says. It is, however, no longer a place where commentary about President Donald Trump is welcome. While other websites struggle to navigate fake accounts, Russian bots and troll accounts, Ravelry simply drew a line.

"We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry," the social media site posted Sunday.

"This includes support in the form of forum posts, projects, patterns, profiles, and all other content," the post continued. "Note that your project data will never be deleted. We will never delete your Ravelry project data for any reason and if a project needs to be removed from the site, we will make sure that you have access to your data. If you are permanently banned from Ravelry, you will still be able to access any patterns that you purchased. Also, we will make sure that you receive a copy of your data."

If Trump wants to go after Iran he’ll need allies — but he doesn’t have many left

Published

on

President Donald Trump's style of politics and "deals" has been more about fighting, creating animosity or publicly attacking international partners. Now that there is a conflict with Iran, Trump is short on allies who can join forces.

In a Politico piece, reporter Anita Kumar harkened back to Trump's tired phrase "America First," noting that now it has become synonymous with "America alone."

After violating the Iran nuclear treaty, things have gotten worse in the relations between the two countries. Meanwhile, Trump cozying up to Kim Jong Un has only resulted in a short pause of weapons tests before beginning again. Trump is in a trade war with China, and the two have reached an impasse in the negotiations. Most of Europe can't stand Trump.
