After Notre Dame Fire, Man Arrested with Gas Gans in NYC Cathedral

The news comes just days after Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was accidentally set ablaze.

gasoline fire arson

The hellish blaze that engulfed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this week was a disheartening spectacle that none of us would ever hope to see again, anywhere in the world.

For many, the timing of the inferno was almost too coincidental to be accidental, given that this is the beginning of Holy Week for the Christian faith, culminating with Easter Sunday in just a few days.  Online conspiracy theorists have long been trying to tie these threads together in order to fit their own narrative, mind you, complete with the occasional race-baiting insinuation that this was Islamic terrorism.

To be clear, there is no evidence of a criminal act having taken place at Notre Dame.

In contrast, however, police in New York City have arrested a man who looked to clearly be ready to reenact the Notre Dame blaze at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral just yesterday.

A New Jersey man was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral carrying two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, the New York Police Department said, just days after flames ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.

The unidentified 37-year-old man had pulled up Wednesday night in a minivan outside the landmark cathedral on Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan, walked around the area, then returned to his vehicle at 7:55 p.m. and retrieved the gasoline and lighter fluid, said NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller.

That’s scary enough…but it gets stranger.

“His basic story was he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue. That his car had run out of gas,” Miller said. “We took a look at the vehicle. It was not out of gas and at that point he was taken into custody.”

The incident comes as another potential copycat criminal was found dead after “obsessing” over the 1999 Columbine massacre and then flying to Colorado and buying a firearm and ammunition.

For real?

Bill Barr knew that President Trump loved tweeting before he accepted the nomination to once again become attorney general of the United States. Recently though, Barr said Trump’s tweets have made it hard for him to do his job. Trump shrugged off the comments. He didn’t see them as a big deal. But now, apparently, Barr is considering leaving his position. Here’s what is known, via Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr told people close to him that he’s considering stepping down over President Trump’s tweets, multiple reports said Tuesday, days after Barr admitted that Trump’s tweeting made it “‘impossible for me to do my job.” https://twitter.com/ZekeJMiller/status/1229960817358954497?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1229960817358954497&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-report-ag-barr-is-considering-quitting-over-trumps-tweets%2F More from Washington Post: The administration officials said Barr seemed to be sharing his position with advisers in hopes the president would get the message that he should stop weighing in publicly on the Justice Department’s ongoing criminal investigations. […] Barr had a previously scheduled lunch with the White House counsel Tuesday and was still the attorney general by day’s end — indicating that the president’s moves that day were not enough to push him to resign.

Even for Joe Biden, a man known for making outlandish statements with no basis in reality, this proposal is quite something. Imagine sending $20 billion to a foreign country to have them not lift a finger. This is how nutty the left has become.

They want to earn their paychecks to feel as though they are contributing. So, when far-left candidates propose eliminating jobs – for pretty much any reason – it doesn’t sit well, nor should it. Biden, apparently, doesn’t understand this. The fact that the economy is thriving means next to nothing to him and it’s pretty sad. To talk of eliminating hundreds of thousands of jobs because the AOC’s of the nation think they know what’s best is downright pathetic. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden signaled support for eliminating hundreds of thousands of blue collar jobs on Thursday night in order to transition to a “greener economy.” https://twitter.com/FrancisBrennan/status/1207838340231380992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1207838340231380992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbiden-eliminate-hundreds-of-thousands-of-blue-collar-jobs-for-greener-economy H/T: Twitchy
