ISIS sympathizer arrested over alleged terror plot on Capitol, authorities say

The FBI has arrested an Ohio man for allegedly plotting an ISIS-inspired attack on the U.S. Capitol, where he hoped to set off a series of bombs aimed at lawmakers, whom he allegedly considered enemies.

Christopher Lee Cornell, 20, of Green Township, was arrested today on charges of attempting to kill a U.S. government official, authorities said.

According to government documents, he allegedly planned to detonate pipe bombs at the national landmark and open fire on any employees and officials fleeing after the explosions.

The FBI first noticed Cornell several months ago after an informant notified the agency that Cornell was allegedly voicing support for violent “jihad” on Twitter accounts under the alias “Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah,” according to charging documents. In addition, Cornell allegedly posted statements, videos and other content expressing support for ISIS — the brutal terrorist group also known as ISIL — that is wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria.

    Don’t allow this anti-American fraud muslim terror supporter to veto the Keystone Pipeline! There are many people who would have jobs contrary to what this anti-American president wants!

      Since when did Keystone become a jobs bill? I thought it was all about energy independence. If you want to put people to work, how about investing in road and bridge building and repair, high speed trains, and electric grid improvements? Many more jobs created than a pipeline, which will employ about 35 people after it’s built.

      1. Dondh says:

        Its both!! This article had to do only with this project! Those are absolutely addition good ways you suggest to get jobs in our country! I agree with you! The Keystone is only one avenue for more jobs! On the other hand, new taxes proposed by this anti-American president will destroy small businesses and maybe even some larger struggling businesses!

        1. I Seigel says:

          Tell me something: How will making those young twerps on Wall Street who play around on computers all day and make millions of dollars a year, how will making those guys pay more taxes destroy jobs? How will making a CEO making $30 million a year pay more taxes destroy jobs? How will making millionaires and billionaires pay more taxes on the capital gains they make from trading stocks destroy jobs, or eliminating these tax loopholes that allow super-rich people to collect art and then build a private museum on their own property, “donate” that art to THEIR museum and get HUGE tax breaks? What’s fair about any of that? You’re just parroting the Fox news line. THINK.

          1. Dondh says:

            Don’t you read my comments? I said nothing about those billionaires of CEO’s getting hurt! Its the middle and lower classes that will get hurt, expecially the small businesses! Those two classes will not have work if those kinds of businesses cannot survive. That would result in far too many people relying on the government for survival which is exactly what this president has in mind. He wants complete control so he tell the American people what they can and can’t do, socialism at work! WE ARE NOT A SOCIALIST COUNTRY! If you don’t understand what I’m commenting on, please ask instead of putting words in my comments something i did not say or mean! You must be a liberal, Ovomit supporter when you say something like parroting the Fox news line. They are the only news media that presents both sides of the news! Most all the others, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, ABC, etc. are all liberals and only present that side of the news, except to denegrate the conservative side! If you can’t see both sides, then I want no further communication with you, period, end finish!

          2. I Seigel says:

            The new taxes that Obama is proposing are targeting the wealthy. Not small business owners. Hence my comment. Sorry, but it sounds like you don’t like taxes of ANY kind.

          3. Dondh says:

            Its not that I don’t like taxes, its because the taxes are unfair! The entire tax program need a sweeping overhall now and not several years down the road! What America needs is a fair tax plan NOW in which the rates are based on income, not one that would tax the richest people inturn giving monies to the lower class people that they won’t have to work for! That’s socialism! What that will or would do is give no incentive to the lower classes to say, “hey, I don’t have to work for a living, I can live off the government and rich people’s taxes! So the same could apply to the middle class! However, his tax plan is a mask to cover up the fact that everybody’s taxes will to up, including premiums on healthcare, which his obamacare is a farce, except for the millions of illegal latino and other aliens living illegally here in our country! Then this fraud president wants to give all those millions of illegal aliens amnesty which would mean free everthing under the sun! And who’s going to pay for that? Maybe or maybe not you guessed it! It will come from all Amerian taxpayers, including those aliens who came to America the right way becoming taxpaying American citizens! Don’t tell me the middle and lower class taxpaying Amerians won’t be hurt by this anti-American president! If you do think so, you are living in la-la land!

            OK, hold on there just a minute!! You’ve intertwined a whole bunch of different arguments here. I’d like to just pick ONE and make sure I understand you. Please.

            About the tax system:
            Without going into your rant about giving money to the “lower classes”, let me ask you: You say that what America needs is a “tax plan… based on incomes.” Is that right? If so, I would agree with you. So, in that system, would you envision that a “rich person” pays more taxes than a “lower class” person? Would income also be considered capital gains (trading in stocks, real estate, etc, which “lower class” people don’t do as much of)? I think it should all be considered as “income” – wages + capital gains.

            Now, remember that story during the last election that Mitt Romney’s secretary paid more in taxes than Romney did that year? How did you feel about that? How about all the loopholes, deductions and ways of hiding or sheltering money that most rich people take advantage of, but that the “lower classes” don’t normally take advantage of because they don’t have expensive tax accountants and attorneys.

            What if a large percentage of the tax monies that were collected were distributed back to the states, so that they could fill their state constitutionally-mandated requirements for education funding, roads and other infrastructure, etc? Would you be for that? Most states, don’t forget, have in their constitutions provisions for funding mental health, education, programs for child and spousal abuse, affordable housing, etc. They could use that money and still not give it to the “lower classes”.

            Is your only objection to the wealthy paying higher taxes the “danger” that some of that money might go to moochers?
