The Department of Justice announced Saturday that charges of destruction of federal property have been filed against four men who attempted to destroy a historic statue of President Andrew Jackson in Washington DC’s Lafayette Park earlier in the week.
The DOJ press release on the charging named four criminal suspects in the vandalism describes their attempt to destroy the statue. Lee Michael Cantrell, 47, Connor Matthew Judd, 30, Ryan Lane, 37, and Graham Lloyd, 37, are all being charged with destruction of federal property.

The press release goes on to announce that Judd was arrested on Friday, and that he made his first appearance before a Washington DC federal judge on Saturday.
Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin described the statue destruction vandals, who have run rampant in a nationwide spree of monument destruction, in no uncertain terms. “The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia will not stand idly by and allow our national monuments to be vandalized and destroyed.”
A statement from FBI agent James Dawson of the Washington D.C. field office in the press release suggested some confusion-describing rioters seen committing flagrant property crimes on camera as if they were peaceful protestors. “The FBI respects the peaceful exercise of First Amendment rights, but we will not allow opportunists to hijack peaceful protests to incite violence and destruction of property.”
President Trump had circulated wanted posters for the men the authorities were seeking in the statue destruction riot on his Twitter. Fortunately, it appears the federal government is finally taking more than empty gestures to forcefully punish those caught on camera desecrating the national heritage of the United States.

Now that the punks of ANTIFA have had their fun attacking the statues of American patriots, it’s time for them to face the music in federal court.
Journalist Andy Ngo is Forced to Leave the U.S. After Credible Death Threats From ANTIFA
Ngo has fled the country.
Journalist Andy Ngo has been forced to leave the United States after enduring credible death threats from ANTIFA domestic terrorists over the course of many months.
Ngo made the shocking announcement that he has relocated to London during a recent appearance on Sky News. He explained how ANTIFA’s reign of terror forced him to leave his home of Portland, Ore. and then the country to protect his safety.
“For a number of months now there’s just been increasing threats of violence against me, promises by Antifa extremists to kill me,” Ngo said about his ordeal.
The full Sky News interview can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on how ANTIFA targeted Ngo in the past with violence in an attempt to intimidate him and prevent him from telling the truth about the domestic terror organization:
A Twitter post from Friday shows that the attack on reporter Andy Ngo, who was savagely beaten by an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon, was premeditated.
“I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally,” he said on Twitter. “They’re promising ‘physical confrontation’ & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence.”
He posted several screenshots from a Facebook event – which of course portrayed the violent mob as the victims of violence themselves – and screenshots from a local Antifa website promoting the event.
“Oregon City Proud Boy [redacted] targets the Portland DSA in a Facebook thread encouraging other members of the hate group to participate in the June 29 assault on Portland. Local far-right Islamophobic journalist Andy Ngo – who participated in the Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys attack on Cedar Riot on May 1, 2019, and who was the first to publicly promote the June 29 Proud Boys event – also targets the DSA while dismissing as hoaxes a series of assaults against the Portland LGBTQ community, some of which were gloated about by far-right activists.”
Another part of the post noted that the group was planning on “physical confrontation,” but said that there are “plenty of other ways to help” if one is unable to partake in the violence.
Ngo’s fears were confirmed when he was attacked Saturday.
Ngo’s experiences show that ANTIFA is not an idea, but a dangerous group of terrorist thugs at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution. By standing strong and continuing reporting the truth about ANTIFA, Ngo is refusing to let the terrorists win.
