Federal law enforcement officials arrested a 56-year-old man in Hudson Valley, New York on Tuesday after learning that he was allegedly planning an election day suicide in Washington, D.C. because he was angered over the nation’s politics.

Authorities say that the man was building a 200-pound bomb that he was planning to use to blow himself up with at the National Mall because of his “radical political beliefs,” CBS New York reported.

“As alleged, (the man) concocted a twisted plan to draw attention to his political ideology by killing himself on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. — risking harm to many others in the process,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said.

Officials claim that his plan was not to hurt other people but to draw attention to his own radical beliefs, although they admitted that “had he been successful, (the man’s) alleged plot could have claimed the lives of innocent bystanders and caused untold destruction,” said FBI Assistant Director in Charge William Sweeney.

    The Democratic leadership is calling for violence. This is what they get. When an incident happens, and one will, they are gonna be all shocked, and claim it wasn’t their fault. Someone (likely mass casualties) is gonna get killed.

      Just like they claim Hollywood’s portrayal of extreme violence only entertains and doesn’t promote violence! The weak minded, reality challenged graduates of the Liberal school system seems to prove their claims to be false! It’s likely even the mild violence my generation saw in the screen (1950’s) had some effect on anyone too messed up to separate fantasy from reality! There seem to be many more of that type these days – Liberalism’s influence?

    I think its time for Americans to step up and take back our government. First – vote out all democrats. Secondly, create term limits – get these old timers out of there – thats why there were term limits. Thirdly, get these stupid leftist professors OUT of universities. They are turning young people minds to mush. Fourth, create a law that says governemnt officials cannot take money except their paychecks while in office. Getting paid by lobby groups is simply legal bribbery. The crazy needs to stop! I also think there is something in the constitution allowing us to take OUR government back from tyranny – which is trying to take root through the democrats.

      There certainly must be something in it to allow us to resist the takeover of our Republic by a foreign ideology – especially when those trying to take over use violence to promote their cause! If our Government can’t, or won’t, stop it, who will if the People won’t? Our 2nd amendment was written for the defense of our Nation – and not just from an invading military! Many of us once swore an oath to defend our Republic from “enemies, both Foreign, and Domestic!” Both is exactly what we have today in the form of the Liberal Socialist Democrat party! And I’m thinking, they are about to push Patriotic Americans too far! This election is about OUR Country, or theirs! This time there is no “Middle ground”, where we can all just get along!

      I would add, parents-step up and teach your children the difference between right and wrong, and to accept consequences for wrong doing. Don’t just give them electronics and let them raise themselves. Harm no one.
      It all starts in the home.
