What Are the Odds? Guy Caught Plotting Violent Jihad Against Capitol as Republicans Holding Out on DHS Funding Bill

It just keeps getting better and better here in the American headlines. Are even diehard Fox and MSNBC viewers still buying any of this stuff?

Just a few days ago, news hit that ISIS supposedly hacked CENTCOM at the same time that President Obama was announcing new cyber security legislation. Superb Wag The Dogtiming, no?

Now, a violent jihad on the Capitol has been thwarted by the FBI. WHEW!

But wait! There’s more…

For weeks now, the mainstream media and Democrats have continued to rail on Republicans for holding out on passing a bill to continue funding the Department of Homeland Security.It’s a little political gamesmanship, as the Republicans hope to pass a Homeland Security bill that would effectively block President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty moves.

Nearly a week after the Paris attacks, two days ago on January 13th, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and other House Democrats met on the Capitol steps to “highlight the recklessness” of the Republicans’ “dangerous Homeland Security funding proposal” according to a press release on her official site, including a call to “stop playing games with the security of American families.”

At the gathering, Pelosi said she thought the Paris attacks would’ve been enough to get the Republicans to knock it off:

“In December, the Republicans were frivolous with it and decided they would kick the can into the new year. That was in December – they said: no, we’re not going to fund Homeland Security for the next year. In January, a horrible, horrible terrorist attack took place in Paris. You think it would have heightened the urgency to pass a Homeland Security bill, but Republicans still say ‘no,’ still say ‘no’ to passing a clean bill, unless they can be a menace to immigration.” [emphasis added]

Just two days ago, Reuters reported that the Republicans do have a Senate majority but would still need some Democrats to vote against Obama’s immigration initiatives by approving their Homeland Security bill which is set to ban funds from being used to implement Obama’s executive amnesty.

According to the White House, any DHS funding bill with immigration restrictions will be immediately vetoed.

Now it’s two days later and right on time like clockwork the FBI has stopped a violent jihad plan to blow up the Capitol building and kill members of Congress.

It’s all over the news that a 20-year-old “mama’s boy” Christopher Lee Cornell from Ohio was planning an “ISIS-inspired plot” to use pipe bombs to blow up the Capitol and shoot any officials who ran out in the aftermath.

And once again, just like the majority of terror plots in this country, this guy Cornell just so happened to have met with an FBI informant twice in the last year and the FBI was tracking him right up until the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested him as he was attempting to buy two M-15 semi-automatic rifles and 600 rounds of ammunition to carry out the plan.

Great timing on that thwarted jihad, guys. Gee, I guess that means the Republicans should pass the Homeland Security bill and stop messing with Obama’s immigration right away, you know, for the security of American families and stuff.

Soap operas have less obvious plot twists than what’s taking over the national stage these days. This is like watching a who-dun-it movie and knowing who the bad guy is in the first 60 seconds (or less).

On an aside, every day lately continues to reaffirm that we’re living in the movie Brazil.
