Rockland County man arrested for building 200-pound bomb, plotting to detonate it in DC on election day

A Rockland County man who cops say built a 200-pound bomb he was planning to explode in Washington, D.C., in an Election Day suicide attack was arrested Wednesday.

Paul Rosenfeld, 56, of Tappan, was busted on federal charges of manufacturing an explosive device.

“As alleged, Paul M. Rosenfeld 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.

“Rosenfeld’s alleged plan for an Election Day detonation cut against our democratic principles.”

In August and September 2018, Rosenfeld sent letters and text messages to a person in Pennsylvania detailing his scheme, authorities allege. The recipient of those communications went to the FBI, court papers show.

Rosenfeld wanted to draw attention to his belief in “sortition,” a political theory that advocates the appointment of government officials by random selection from a pool of qualified candidates.

When cops stopped his car Tuesday, Rosenfeld waived his Miranda rights and told officers he ordered large quantities of black powder over the internet, which he transported from a spot in New Jersey to his house, authorities say.

He used a burner phone to communicate with people about his plot, the records show.

He said he used approximately eight pounds of black powder to construct a large explosive device in the basement of the home. He also disclosed that he had tested smaller devices.

His home was searched and agents say they found a functioning bomb weighing about 200 pounds inside a plywood box. The device was taken from the basement and brought to a secure location.

They also found a fusing system for triggering bombs and empty canisters of black powder. The fusing system was made up of a switch that would generate an electrical charge that would spark an e-match inside the bomb.

Sortition as a political doctrine has its roots in Ancient Greece where some cities, including Athens, used the method to choose its leaders.

Rosenfeld contibuted an essay titled “The Extinction of Politics” to Equalitybylot.com. He described himself as a “Klerotarian,” a reference to a stone device used by the Athenians to randomize voting.

In that 2015 essay, he wrote, “If we ever hope to see this thinking converted into action that will have to change. Somehow we must convince enough people to put our movement on the map. For this, we will need a highly effective argument, because the people we wish to persuade are living under the thrall of a myth.”

He added, “And like true believers, fundamentalists even, each further obstacle is taken as a sign; the path is righteous but rocky, we must purify our faith and trudge ever onward. When we are finally worthy, the Democratic Process will at last deliver us. The road to true reverence has been long.”

Rosenfeld is a registered voter, but he didn’t belong to a particular political party. He is also a member of the Nyack Yacht Club, records show.

His parents, Diane and Peter Rosenfeld, said they wanted to thank the FBI for resolving the case before anyone got hurt, but wouldn’t comment further when reached at their Charlotte, Vt., home.

“We have nothing useful to say at this time,” his father said. “It’s too early for any of us to understand this yet.”

From what I have read he is a third party nut.

He is mad that only political parties in charge are R's and D's. I can understand that being that the demoncrap party is so far to the left and the Repugs moved in to fill that gap left by the demoncrap party.

I heard he wants a system of government where reps are selected at random.

That is, in fact, something I myself advocated as well, sans 200 lbs of explosive. Not sure how a bomb would play into forming his preferred system of government.

If the idea is to have representatives that actually represent the people, selecting them at random is very arguably a far better way to get a valid cross section of the will of the people than is getting mostly stupid voters to choose the most charismatic & power hungry career politicians.

I have a minor in mathematics. This falls into the laws of probability.

I have to caution you about "conclusions" based on marble science. For simple dynamics of and about "marbles in a jar" it is a fact that while the population group of all "red marbles" being introduced to "a few new blue marbles" is of no consequence to the general population group; within human social realms, the opposite outcome occurs and with often violent ramifications: REVOLUTION; the result is there is no clear direction for human society based on random choices of leadership.
