Would-Be NYC Cathedral Arsonist Had Just Purchased a One Way Ticket To…

The story just keeps getting stranger…and more worrisome as well.

Rome vatican

As with just about any news these days, there was an almost immediate sprouting of conspiracy theories surrounding the blaze at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this week.

For many social media users, the coincidence of the inferno occurring on Monday of Holy Week was just too much.  They saw this as “a sign”, and almost certainly as a “nefarious act”, possibly played out in order to spark some sort of Holy War.

The theories get much wilder than that as well, but we dare not wade too deep into the conspiratorial waters, lest we want to be blacklisted by some clandestine “fact checking” gestapo.

Despite the insistence of investigators that there was no reason to believe foul play was at work, the internet’s darker corners remained skeptical.  Then, came the story of a man in NYC who was arrested after walking into Saint Patrick’s Cathedral with two cans of gas, some lighter fluid, and a lighting device.

This sparked a whole new realm of conspiracy for many…and that was before we knew about his travel plans.

Marc Lamparello, a former director of music at a New Jersey Roman Catholic Church, was arrested at the historic St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City on Wednesday night after security stopped him with two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, police said.

Sources with the New York City Police Department told ABC News that he also purchased a one-way ticket to Rome, which was scheduled to depart from Newark, New Jersey, on Thursday evening.

Lamparello, 37, was charged with attempted arson, reckless endangerment and some violations of city codes. He told police that he was taking a shortcut through church to reach his minivan, which he claimed had run out of gas.

Police then inspected Lamparello’s vehicle, determined that it was indeed not out of gas, and made the arrest.

Given Rome’s intrinsic value to the Roman Catholic community, and Lamparello’s alleged attempted arson, there is little doubt that this, too, will be the subject of a vast online discussion that may or may not have any inherent merit.

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
