“On November 29, 1984, Susan Lisa Rosenberg and Timothy A. Blunk, reputed members of the May 19th Communist Organization (M19CO), a Marxist-Leninist group which openly advocates the overthrow of the U.S. Government through armed struggle and the use of violence, were arrested by local authorities in New Jersey. Rosenberg and Blunk were subsequently indicted on Federal firearms and illegal possession and transportation of explosive charges. They were held in lieu of $1 million and $500,000 bonds, respectively. (See Terrorist Related Activities Section, page 36)
MAY 19TH COMMUNIST ORGANIZATION
The May 19th Communist Organization (M19CO) is a Marxist-Leninist group which openly advocates· the overthrow of the U.S. Government through armed struggle and the use of violence. Its members have been linked with other known domestic terrorist organizations such as the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberacion Nacional (FALN), Republic of New Afrika, and remnants of the Weather Underground Organization and the Black Liberation Army.
On November 29, 1984, Susan Lisa Rosenberg and Timothy A. Blunk, reputed M19CO members, were arrested by local authorities and subsequently indicted on Federal charges. (See Accomplishment Section, page 31)
At the time of their arrests, Rosenberg and Blunk were in possession of a hugh cache of explosives F and numerous weapons. Rosenberg had been a Federal fugitive since 1982, on charges in connection with the November 1979 prison escape of the alleged leader of the Black Liberation Army, Joanne Chesimard, who is currently an FBI fugitive, as well as the October 20, 1981 Brink’s robbery and slayings in Nanuet, New York. Rosenberg has been charged with participation in the planning of this holdup and subsequent shootout which left a gU8rd and two police officers dead.
FBI investigation indicates that Blunk and another M19CO member, Alan Berkman, also an FBI fugitive wanted as an accessory in the aforementioned 1981 Brink’s robbery and slayings in Nanuet, New York, were involved in the September 2, 1984 robbery of a Stop and Shop Supermarket in Cromwell, Connecticut.

“Rosenberg was sentenced to 58 years’ imprisonment on the weapons and explosives charges. She spent 16 years in prison… Her sentence was commuted to time served by President Bill Clinton on January 20, 2001, his final day in office.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Rosenberg

Like BLM founders Garza and Cullors, many M19CO members were Lesbians:
Alicia Garza identifies as Jewish and, in 2008, she married Malachi Garza (a woman who has declared herself a man) and settled in Oakland, California. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alicia_Garza Patrice Cullors is a woman who married Janaya Khan (apparently born female) of Toronto Canada. Khan has roots in India but calls herself “black”, which isn’t the American understanding of “black”, though British have been known to call people from the Indian subcontinent black: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrisse_Cullors Opal Tometi is the child of Nigerian immigrants. We don’t know if she is a lesbian or trans or not: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opal_Tometi
Cullors, a self-proclaimed “Marxist”, has recently made the news for purchases of high end properties: “Inside BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ million-dollar real-estate buying binge” By Isabel Vincent April 10, 2021, 7:23pm, “As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records…” See: https://nypost.com/2021/04/10/inside-blm-co-founder-patrisse-khan-cullors-real-estate-buying-binge/
According to Grunge, “many M19 members were lesbians”, who were middle or upper middle class. In 1978, they became allied with Puerto Rican terrorist-“freedom fighters”, the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación, or FALN. They helped FALN bomb maker Willie Morales escape from prison to Cuba. They also helped Assata Shakur (born Joanne Chesimard), who was arrested for the execution-style killing of a state trooper in May 1973, escape to Cuba.

US Senate History:
“November 7, 1983
The Senate had planned to work late into the evening of Monday, November 7, 1983. Deliberations proceeded more smoothly than expected, however, so the body adjourned at 7:02 p.m. A crowded reception, held near the Senate Chamber, broke up two hours later. Consequently, at 10:58 p.m., when a thunderous explosion tore through the second floor of the Capitol’s north wing, the adjacent halls were virtually deserted. Many lives had been spared.
Minutes before the blast, a caller claiming to represent the “Armed Resistance Unit” had warned the Capitol switchboard that a bomb had been placed near the chamber in retaliation for recent U.S. military involvement in Grenada and Lebanon.
The force of the device, hidden under a bench at the eastern end of the corridor outside the chamber, blew off the door to the office of Democratic Leader Robert C. Byrd. The blast also punched a potentially lethal hole in a wall partition sending a shower of pulverized brick, plaster, and glass into the Republican cloakroom.
Although the explosion caused no structural damage to the Capitol, it shattered mirrors, chandeliers, and furniture. Officials calculated damages of $250,000.
A stately portrait of Daniel Webster, located across from the concealed bomb, received the explosion’s full force. The blast tore away Webster’s face and left it scattered across the Minton tiles in one-inch canvas shards. Quick thinking Senate curators rescued the fragments from debris-filled trash bins. Over the coming months, a capable conservator painstakingly restored the painting to a credible, if somewhat diminished, version of the original.
Following a five-year investigation, federal agents arrested six members of the so-called Resistance Conspiracy in May 1988 and charged them with bombings of the Capitol, Ft. McNair, and the Washington Navy Yard. In 1990, a federal judge sentenced Marilyn Buck, Laura Whitehorn, and Linda Evans to lengthy prison terms for conspiracy and malicious destruction of government property. The court dropped charges against three co-defendants, already serving extended prison sentences for related crimes.
The 1983 bombing marked the beginning of tightened security measures throughout the Capitol. The area outside the Senate Chamber, previously open to the public, was permanently closed. Congressional officials instituted a system of staff identification cards and added metal detectors to building entrances to supplement those placed at chamber gallery doors following a 1971 Capitol bombing.” https://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/minute/bomb_explodes_in_capitol.htm https://archive.is/4jmr
Nadler also added his signature to a list of “notable supporters” for Judith Clark. See: “Jerry Nadler’s ‘Family’ Values“, by Mary Grabar, RealClearPolitics, 5-22-2019: https://archive.is/q688q Governor Cuomo allowed Clark to be released and she got out of jail in 2019. Clark, born 1949, as a “red diaper baby” spent formative years in the Soviet Union with her Communist Party parents: “Clark grew up in a Jewish family with her older brother and parents, Joe Clark and his wife Ruth. Her parents were members of the American Communist Party for many years…. Clark lived in the Soviet Union from 1950 to 1953.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Alice_Clark
Laura Whitehorn is also Jewish and looks like a Jeff Epstein clone: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Whitehorn She only spent 14 years in jail.
“The indictment covered the Oct. 20, 1981, attack on the Brink’s truck by a band of people that included members of the Weather Underground and the Black Liberation Army. The security guard was killed in the Nanuet Mall, and the two police officers were killed in a roadblock shootout. The robbers took $1.6 million. Federal investigations later showed that Ms. Rosenberg lived for a year in New Haven with Marilyn Jean Buck, the driver of the getaway car. In the explosives case, Ms. Rosenberg was convicted in 1985 of eight counts of possessing explosives, weapons and fake identification cards. She was sentenced to 58 years in prison. The length of the sentence gave Rudolph W. Giuliani, then the United States attorney, reason to drop the charges in the Brink’s robbery. Ms. Rosenberg objected at the time, but to no avail.” See: “Former Terrorist Is Among Those Pardoned or Freed in Clinton’s Final Acts in Office” By Edward Wong With Sherri Day Jan. 21, 2001 https://web.archive.org/web/20210305190252/https://www.nytimes.com/2001/01/21/nyregion/former-terrorist-among-those-pardoned-freed-clinton-s-final-acts-office.html
The two policemen killed in the Brinks robbery were Edward O’Grady and Waverly Brown who was “the first black man to serve on the Nyack police force”. See: “Jerry Nadler’s ‘Family’ Values”, by Mary Grabar, RealClearPolitics, 5-22-2019: https://archive.is/q688q

Robert Byrd (D-W.V.)… In 1954, a group of Puerto Rican separatists got onto the House floor and opened fire with handguns. Five members of the House were wounded in the attack… “ See: https://web.archive.org/web/20210118214149if_/https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/03/02/a-look-at-the-history-of-attacks-in-the-u-s-capitol-44-years-after-the-weather-underground-bombing/
“Weather Underground Bombings
On January 29, 1975, an explosion rocked the headquarters of the U.S. State Department in Washington, D.C. No one was hurt, but the damage was extensive, impacting 20 offices on three separate floors. Hours later, another bomb was found at a military induction center in Oakland, California, and safely detonated.
A domestic terrorist group called the Weather Underground claimed responsibility for both bombs. Originally called the Weatherman or the Weathermen, a name taken from a line in a Bob Dylan song, the Weather Underground was a small, violent offshoot of Students for a Democratic Society, or SDS, a group created in the turbulent ‘60s to promote social change.
When SDS collapsed in 1969, the Weather Underground stepped forward, inspired by communist ideologies and embracing violence and crime as a way to protest the Vietnam War, racism, and other left-wing aims. “Our intention is to disrupt the empire … to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks,” claimed the group’s 1974 manifesto, Prairie Fire.
By the next year, the group had claimed credit for 25 bombings—including the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, the California Attorney General’s office, and a New York City police station.
The FBI doggedly pursued these terrorists as their attacks mounted. Many members were identified, but their small numbers and guerrilla tactics helped them hide under assumed identities. In 1978, the Bureau arrested five members who were plotting to bomb a politician’s office. Others were captured after two policemen and a Brinks’ driver were murdered in a botched armored car robbery in Nanuet, New York, in 1981.
Key to disrupting the group for good was the newly created FBI-New York City Police Anti Terrorist Task Force. It brought together the strengths of both organizations and focused them on these domestic terrorists. The task force and others like it paved the way for today’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces—created by the Bureau in each of its field offices to fuse federal, state, and local law enforcement and intelligence resources to combat today’s terrorist threats.
By the mid-’80s, the Weather Underground was essentially history. Still, several of these fugitives were able to successfully hide themselves for decades, emerging only in recent years to answer for their crimes. Once again, it shows that grit and partnerships can and will defeat shadowy, resilient terrorist groups. “

“Trial Begins for 2 Held In ’81 Brink’s Robbery”, By Arnold H. Lubasch, Published: December 1, 1987 https://web.archive.org/web/20171108031535/https://www.nytimes.com/1987/12/01/nyregion/trial-begins-for-2-held-in-81-brink-s-robbery.html
Chokwe Lumumba (born in Detroit, Michigan, as Edwin Finley Taliaferro and whose family was from Kansas) acted as a defense attorney in the Brink’s robbery case. Lumumba was a Black Nationalist segregationist who wanted to turn the southeastern United States into a “New Afrika”: independent homeland for African Americans. He set up headquarters in Jackson Mississippi in 1971. Mississippi public schools were integrated from First Grade starting in 1970. Progress was finally being made in Mississippi, so this segregationist push was trying to push the state backwards, and it is the same segregationist plan that David Duke allegedly had for the United States. Now one must wonder if these were David Duke’s ideas or if he was blamed for New Afrika’s ideas. In 1987 Mike Espy became the first black US Congressman from Mississippi, since Reconstruction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Espy In 1967, Martin Luther King said that Blacks in the south could see progress being made, but not the Blacks in the north: “MLK Talks ‘New Phase’ Of Civil Rights Struggle, 11 Months Before His Assassination”: https://youtu.be/2xsbt3a7K-8
Chokwe Lumumba became Mayor (ca 2013) of Jackson, MS, and his son, Chokwe Lumumba Jr, is currently mayor of Jackson Mississippi. A City Councilman, who is a native of Jackson Mississippi, accuses Lumumba Jr of incompetence or corruption: https://www.wlbt.com/2021/02/25/stokes-lumumba-go-back-forth-heated-war-words Current US House Chair of the Homeland Security Committee, Bennie Thompson, represents the same district as Espy, in the Mississippi delta, that “New Afrika” wanted to make “Kush”. Thompson seems to only care about turning Mississippi “Hispanic”. Instead of being happy that Trump restored jobs to black and white Mississippians during an immigration raid, Thompson got mad. Mayor Chokwe Lumumba Jr. is a Mike Bloomberg buddy, too.
“Another defense lawyer, Chokwe Lumumba, then said in an opening statement for Mr. Shakur that the defense team brought them ”a warm and revolutionary greeting.” “Dr. Shakur, as the evidence will show, is a New Africa freedom fighter,” Mr. Lumumba said, referring to his client as a doctor because he is an acupuncturist who ran a clinic in Harlem… He said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had conducted extensive surveillance of the political activities of Mr. Shakur and others in a black independence group known as the Republic of New Africa.” “Trial Begins for 2 Held In ’81 Brink’s Robbery” By Arnold H.

Not only were African Americans making progress in Mississippi by the time New Afrika set up shop there, but slavery arrived late to Mississippi. This fact undermines the New Afrika argument. Most of Mississippi only had slavery for 30 to 60 years (with the exception of the Natchez district). Prior to that time it belonged to American Indians (mostly Choctaw). Many Mississippi Choctaw took US citizenship and merged into the general population, rather than move to Oklahoma. Mississippi public schools were integrated by 1970 (from grade 1). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Dancing_Rabbit_Creek https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mississippi_Territory
Now there is “The Not Fucking Around Coalition (NFAC) is a black nationalist paramilitary organization in the United States. The group advocates for black liberation and separatism. It has been described by news outlets as a “Black militia”. It denies any connection to the Black Panther Party or Black Lives Matter.” They apparently want to have Texas now, rather than the southeastern United States as their country. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Not_Fucking_Around_Coalition The media seems to think they are cool, even though they are segregationists and secessionists. “NFAC Leader “Grandmaster Jay” Charged With Assaulting Law Enforcement Officers”, Thursday, December 3, 2020 https://archive.is/Va1B3
“The last fugitive from the 1981 Brinks robbery, which left two police officers and a guard dead, is living in Havana as a political fugitive, where she continues to call for black separatism in the United States. Cheri Laverne Dalton, who now calls herself Nehanda Obiodun, is a special guest of the Cuban government and receives a monthly stipend from them equal to the amount paid a Cuban professional. She recently acknowledged that she also receives financial help from the Republic of New Afrika, a U.S.-based group that believes that black Americans should form a separate nation out of five southern states. Obiodun joined the group after graduating from Columbia University with a degree in English and Journalism in the mid-1970s. Obiodun’s job in Cuba is to speak to local citizens and foreign visitors about the plight of what she refers to as political prisoners in the United States, prisoners serving time for crimes committed to fund and support a leftist revolution (Howell, 1994).
On May 2, 1973, Joanne Chesimard, a member of the Black Liberation Army, and two of her friends were stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike by State Troopers James Harper and Werner Foerster. While being questioned, Chesimard and the driver opened fire on the troopers with automatic pistols, hitting both of them. Chesimard then took Foerster’s weapon and fired execution style into the officer’s head, killing him. She was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. She escaped in 1979 and fled to Cuba where she was granted political asylum (McCaslin, 1998). “Left-Wing Extremism: The Current Threat”, Seger, 2001: https://www.osti.gov/biblio/780410
