A California man is arrested for allegedly plotting to carry out a terror attack in San Francisco on Christmas day.

Everitt Aaron Jameson faces one count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, after he reportedly told an undercover FBI agent he planned to attack the city’s Pier 39.

A man charged with plotting a terror attack in San Francisco on Christmas Day “in support of ISIS” trained at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, military records show. (Published Friday, Dec. 22, 2017)

He reportedly told the agent he wanted to mimic terror attacks similar to San Bernardino and New York City.

Authorities say the 26-year-old was radicalized by Jihadist beliefs, and posted and liked pro-ISIS material on social media.

Jameson’s father was shocked following the arrest.

“it’s just really unbelievable. it’s just hard to fathom right now. i don’t really know what to say, how to feel, really,” says, Gordon Jameson “It’s just shocking. That’s my son. Never saw it coming, not at once, you know what i mean?”

Jameson also allegedly said he did not need an escape plan in place because he was “ready to die.”

New details also suggest he was discharged from the marine corps, and had experience as a sharpshooter.

Officials say they executed a search warrant and seized numerous items from the home of the man accused of plotting a terror attack on San Francisco’s Pier 39 for Christmas Day.

Authorities found several and weapons during a search warrant on his home.

Since Jameson’s arrest, San Francisco’s FBI branch said there’s no current threat to the city.

    Looks like a dead mans finger in the top photo. Oh no….Jerry Browns administration has an encampment for this guy just like that other murdering clown.

    California man? No. California Muslim.

    Since he was an ex-Marine, it seems that he’s been rotten to the Corps. This poor excuse of a citizen needs to be confined where he can’t do anybody any harm. I doubt that a head-shrinker would do him any good. I’ve been to them and I’m still just as loony as ever, if you know what I mean.

    It would be wonderful if He could be a sinner with a Savior instead of following Allah, who is the devil and not any kind of god, into Gei-Hinnom, the lake of fire that the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus) made for the devil and his fellow demons. No human should end up there, for the Master offers us everlasting life, but He will not force anyone to make any choice. We have to be a willing recipient of His blessing, amein.

    This wuss is a disgrace to the uniform he wore and the oath he took. No wonder he didn’t make it in the Corp.

  • Sergio Bungholio

    His father didnt see it coming? He dresses like a moose lung…a beard and Im sure he was spouting hate. Obviously they werent close

    Islam is poison. And getting kicked out of boot camp doesn’t make him a Boy Scout, much less a U.S. Marine.

  • seegul

    Hang him!

  • Varangian Guard

    I hope someone is doing the due diligence to understand the recruitment of an unlikely subject like this. They are certainly successful at it. What is the weak thread that binds this together?

  • Let My People Go

    Officials in California will probably release him on Christmas day because it would be cruel to hold a Muslim for the holiday.

    • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

      Which is really counterintuitive since muzzies don’t follow Christ, therefore don’t celebrate Christmas, therefore don’t need the day off.
      But I get your sarcasm and (probable) foresight.

  • grandmother5

    I have a question. How long did this dirtlovingPOS serve? I could only find he was discharged. Was it honorable or dishonorable? It doesn’t sound like he served very long.

    • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

      Served less than a year… Other than a medical discharge, it doesn’t look like he was honorably discharged.
      So until more info is available, I’m going to assume his short stint as a marine was a faux pas.

      • SkyCop2010

        I read on another site that he was booted for asthma. Lied on his entrance papers.

      • grandmother5

        I bet it was not an honorable discharge. I agree this man or boy jumps into things without thinking things through. I am so glad he didn’t make good on his threats. I hope he doesn’t plea insanity.

  • Andrew Moore8

    Sorry….he is no marine….real marines don’t become traitors to their country

  • Arnold Maize

    Another proud parent of a traitor from Modesto, CA.

    • nfcapitalist

      His dad didn’t see this coming… “it” is an interesting subject for an abnormal psychology team to reduce him to the common denominator like Pavlov’s dogs to see exactly how this young man evolved into this imbecilic state.

      • Andrew Moore8

        It’s California….question answered.

  • Mr Springfield

    It just goes to show that the young people today have brains of mush because this no man. This POS was in the Marines and has done a 180* since leaving? Unbelievable. The pic of him as a Marine makes him look like a bad a$$, the pic of him as a muzzy makes him look like my paperboy could take him.

    • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

      I think he’s looking like a live action rendition of the dwarf Doc.

  • tophat1984

    Dear OAN, thank you for not headlining this sh-tbird as ‘former Marine’. He didn’t even make it through 1 year of service, ergo he was nothing. Shalom.

  • grandmother5

    The father didn’t notice changes in his son? I don’t believe that. He’s just in denial about his son. Did he live with his father? How often did the father see the son? How can one’s mind get so messed up, they want to kill people in masses.

    • Localdude

      …well, Dad musta voted for Obama and fully supports Pelosi…so he thought..nothing strange here!

    • UEM

      “How can one’s mind get so messed up, they want to kill people in masses.” Well through the religion of peace of course.

    • James Cunningham

      Islam is a very sick ideology. It is not a religion so much as it is a violent political movement that murders all others on the planet for their own power. It is not peaceful. It never was peaceful, and it never will be peaceful.

      • “I’m a Rooster!”

        It has always been that way, as it would seem to me.

      • grandmother5

        Exactly! They women, children and the men have sad eyes.

      • Mierscourt

        total TRUTH IS SPOKEN.

    • “I’m a Rooster!”

      As a father, a grandfather and [hopefully soon] a great-grandfather, I would know if any of my children began changing like this young man did. His father is in denial…

      • grandmother5

        Congregations on the great-grandfather thing. Boy or Girl? I have a great-Grandson. The light of my life. I agree. It doesn’t seem they were that close, if he didn’t see some sort of a change with him.

        • “I’m a Rooster!”

          So far, a girl is a brewing! Very, very excited here!
          I always stay close to all my children – no matter what. Sometimes I’d like to give them away [lol] but, we’re the parents and they’re an extension of us! Great talking to you.

          • grandmother5

            A girl. WOW! I have 3 sons, 5 granddaughters and one great grandson. We are very close. Great talking to you. Happy New Year.

  • nfcapitalist

    Life without parole… anyone planning mass casualties should never see the light if day… ever!

    • Tyrone

      This happened in San Fransico, but hopefully since he will be prosecuted by the Feds, we, the American people, stand a better chance of having him convicted and taken away from us.

  • nfcapitalist

    Gillian Turner, Leland Vitert, Juan Williams, Shepard Smith, Maria Harf, etc.. seem to be pushing the lefttlists cause, interrupting conservatives to the point of being rude, their shoulders to the door closing down anything that doesn’t fit the Schumer/Pelosi drivel… the comments board on Fox is locked up with goose stepping leftists wanting it seems to legalize crime and penalize patriotism.

  • Kanemoto Foto

    Not to be picky but to help insure OANN’s rep for accuracy continues untarnished, I believe “Marine Corps” should be capitalized. 😉

    • nfcapitalist

      So do you hate the Marines and believe in kissing Muslim butt… just to be clear?

      • Zotus

        What does pointing out Marine Corps should be capitalized have to do with hating the Marines and kissing Muslim butt? Seems quite a stretch like liberal opinions.

        • nfcapitalist

          You’re absolutely right… the mention of the USMC in the same short sentence about some muslim scum caught me flat footed.

      • tedlv

        I’m not reading anything like that in Kanemoto’s comment.

        • nfcapitalist

          Thanks for pointing this out… my bad.

          • tedlv

            You’re welcome!

    • Rufus Firefly

      What about he “had experience as a sharpshooter”? The writer has no idea what sharpshooter means.

      • Andrew Moore8

        And like you would???

    • nfcapitalist

      My apologies… so many freaks attacking the US Military here and on Fox that I guess the mention of “Marine Corps” raises the hair… sorry for that!

  • Steven

    I think he should be deported to to Afghanistan where haters can hate while living in a mud hut. Enjoy.

    • grandmother5

      If he was deported to Afghanistan, I think he would wake up and say, “WTH was I thinking”? Living in dirt, no clean water, nasty food, no showers/soap, what about toothpaste? I bet he would be executed by ISIS in a NY minute because he wouldn’t fit in with those animals thinking. Just a immature creature play acting. Ready to die? I doubt it.

      • NotSure

        They normally do once they find out theres no cigarettes, comfortable living, boos and social media. Then they cry to come back home but cant because now they are traitors. And yes, I am still more than ripped about what happened or did not happen to Mr. Manning, but that is besides the point.

        • Arnold Maize

          That’s all we need is another Bowe Bergdahl.

          • NotSure

            Thank-you in helping me keep my traitors names straight. (Pun not intended).

        • Marty Kirkpatrick

          What, if anything, DID happen to bergdahl? I seem to have missed the punishment phase of his sentence. Coincidence? Absofukkinlutely!

      • “I’m a Rooster!”

        This is proof idiots exist.

      • JL Ziegler

        He might just want to be the ‘submissive servant’ of a large Afghan.

    • Sergio Bungholio

      Yes. A direct flight to Kabul and drop him off…from 35000 feet

  • C B

    Traitor …………….

    • badass

      put him to death….done.
