An American citizen who reportedly found inspiration from ISIS has pleaded guilty to a terror charge for planning to bomb or shoot up various places such as the White House.
Domestic Terrorist Pleads Guilty
Kristopher Sean Matthews, 34, of South Carolina conspired to attack various well-known sites including the Trump Tower and other notable places according to federal authorities.
A hearing was held in San Antonio with a U.S. magistrate judge presiding and Matthews plead guilty to a conspiracy charge to provide material support to the Islamic State group.
The domestic terrorist said he had a partner Jaylyn Christopher Molina, 22, of Cost, Texas, where they reportedly conspired together since May 2019. The two had researched the bomb-making process in order to attempt domestic and foreign attacks on behalf of ISIS.

Matthews also admitted that the two had conspired to radicalize and recruit other individuals to support the Islamic militant organization.
Molina and Matthews were both indicted by a grand jury on October 14, each for one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and one count of providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
When he is sentenced on March 4, Matthews, who remains in federal custody, faces up to 20 years in federal prison. Molina, who is also in federal custody, faces up to 40 years in federal prison if convicted.
BLM and Antifa Wreak Havoc Too
More radical groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter have been terrorizing the streets in America. Many Republicans refer to these chaos causing organizations as domestic terrorists.
ISIS may be a foreign entity but its influence finds a way to seep into American society. While Antifa and BLM have been created on U.S. soil for the sole purpose of violence and to disturb the peace.
