According to several reports, a New York man was building a bomb with which he planned to blow himself up on election day in Washington, D.C.
“Court documents say Paul Rosenfeld, 56, of Tappan, wanted to draw attention to his belief in ‘sortition,’ the ancient practice of randomly selecting legislators out of a pool of eligible voters,” one report said.
Authorities pulled Rosenfeld over on Tuesday after they were tipped off to his activities by a reporter whom he had contacted to share his plan. According to that reporter, Rosenfeld said that he was angry over the country’s direction. Rosenfeld confessed to the plot during the traffic stop, and authorities later raided his home.
“Investigators scoured his home and discovered a bomb that weighed 200 pounds but included only eight pounds of explosive black powder, court papers say. The extra weight was due to plywood crating and other components used to transport the device,” the report said.
Rosenfeld had no criminal record, and according to Lexis Nexis, had no registered political affiliation. He was charged in federal court with unlawful manufacture of a destruction device and interstate transportation and receipt of an explosive.
“Had he been successful, Rosenfeld’s alleged plot could have claimed the lives of innocent bystanders and caused untold destruction,” said FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William Sweeney.
Authorities say there is no further danger to the public.
YUGE: DHS Creating Statue Defense Task Force to Defend National Heritage Against Leftist Thuggery
Finally getting serious?
The Department of Homeland Security has created a law enforcement task force to prevent the destruction and vandalism of statues and monuments commemorating the heritage and history of the United States. The task force was announced in a statement from Acting Secretary Chad Wolf on Wednesday.
“DHS is answering the President’s call to use our law enforcement personnel across the country to protect our historic landmarks,” said Wolf. “We won’t stand idly by while violent anarchists and rioters seek not only to vandalize and destroy the symbols of our nation, but to disrupt law and order and sow chaos in our communities.”
A lackadaisical federal response to the rounds of statue destruction and cultural vandalism has enabled left-wing rioters to destroy statues with impunity. Only recently did federal authorities begin to signal that they intent to start seriously punishing criminal suspects who destroy images of Presidents and great American men.
The Department of Justice announced late last week that four men suspected in a failed vandalism attempt targeting the statue of former President Andrew Jackson in Washington DC’s Lafayette Square have been indicted on federal charges of destruction of federal property.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order late last month mandating that federal prosecutors assign stricter penalties to left-wing cultural criminals seeking to destroy statues and images commemorating the national heritage of the United States.

It’s likely that when the punks of ANTIFA realize that they’ll stand to spend years in federal prison for criminal acts of vandalism targeting American heritage, they’ll back down into the cracks of society from whence they came.
