This week Project Veritas exposed a criminal plot by group that American Lens had reported on over the weekend – DisruptJ20.
This group’s intent is to turn the inauguration of President Elect Trump into a “clusterf*ck.”
The Project Veritas disrupted DisruptJ20 with a set of videos capturing organizers on camera. The videos (posted at the end of this article) included organizers plotting disruptions to scheduled events, one of which included the use of butryic acid in the ventilation system of the building housing the National Press Club in an attempt to shut down the DeploraBall event. These actions could constitute a violation of anti-terrorism laws (D.C. Code 22-3571.01(6).
According to Project Veritas, “DisruptJ20 is a coalition of multiple leftist organizations including Industrial Workers of the World, the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council, Refuse Fascism, Smash Racism DC, and the D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition.”
Also involved are the League of Conservation Voters, Socialist Alternative and Workers World Party.
Another planned attack which was caught on camera was a way to shut down the D.C. Metro system. In one of the videos, Co-Founder and Organizer, Legba Carrefour states, “So we figured out this, the trains pull up, one person is going to lock one end of a chain to an edge, and on the other end of the chain the end of the car ”¦ done. It takes 15 seconds and everyone can leave and literally it can’t go anywhere at that point, it’s anchored. If I were to hit Metro Center, Gallery Place, and L’Enfant Plaza, they are all close enough to walk to and that’s every single line in the city.”
The attack on the Metro system would be a violation of 18 U.S.C. 1992: Terrorist attacks and other violence against railroad carriers and against mass transportation systems on land, on water, or through the air. 18 U.S.C 1992 reads in part:
“a person found guilty will face a fine or imprisonment for no more than 20 years and that if the offense results in the death of a person the individual shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life or may face the death penalty.”
The penalty for violating 18 U.S.C 1992 can be a fine or imprisonment of up to 20 years, or both. Should the activities violating this code result in death or injury to anyone, the code states that the person(s) responsible, “shall be imprisoned for any term of years, or for life, or subject to death…”
Part of the Project Veritas footage shows discussion and approval of “throat punching” as “probably a good thing” when coming into contact with “nazis” by Mike Isaacson (Co-Founder of Smashing Racism).
DisruptJ20 has been forced to scale back their ‘assault’. The group’s blockade plans shared all over the news and internet by DisruptJ20 leader, Legba Carrefour. As a result of Carrefour’s blabbing and Project Veritas exposing the depth of the planning, those blockade plans have apparently been scaled back to just one road being targeted for Friday.
After the release of the first Project Veritas Video, DisruptJ20 was attempting to spin the footage with claims that they were ‘playing along’ because they knew they were being filmed. Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe immediately refuted the claims:

According to The Daily Caller, OrganizeJ20 accused Project Veritas of trying to set up one of their organizers, Ryan Clayton. The Daily Caller reported that, “Last week, a group called The Undercurrent released video of an O’Keefe operative meeting with Ryan Clayton, an activist with the group Americans Take Action. The Undercurrent said that the O’Keefe operative was trying to set up Clayton by showing him accepting money in exchange for blocking bridges during the inauguration.”
The Undercurrent is a project of American Family Voices, an umbrella organizations backing progressive liberal policies and claims to be, “at the forefront of developing new message ideas and strategic initiatives for the progressive cause.” Their funding appears to come mainly from labor unions as well as from organizations linked to George Soros.
American Family Voices is linked to Democracy Partners, where Bob Creamer is a ‘partner’. Creamer was also exposed by Project Veritas for activities such as paying and training agitators to disrupt Trump rallies.
The Undercurrent video features Lauren Windsor, Executive Director of American Family Voices and the Executive Producer of The Undercurrent. According to the Democracy Partners website, Windsor’s associate is Aaron Black.
Black was also exposed by Project Veritas prior to the election. Black, self-described as, “deputy rapid response director for the DNC”, was caught on camera multiple times by Project Veritas. In one video, Black talked about a scheme to harass and bully women at a Trump rally and even bragged about his involvement in one rally in March which turned violent.
Who Are These DisruptJ20 People?
Very shortly after the drop of these videos, users on various social media platforms have begun unearthing details about some of the DisruptJ20 organizers featured in the Project Veritas videos. Some documents used by and related to the group were even leaked online.
Archived blog snippets and multiple forum posts surfaced about one of the organizers caught on camera, Paul “Luke” Kuhn, made the rounds on Tuesday, linking Kuhn to known domestic terrorist, Neo-Nazi and anarchist, Bill White:
“DC Indymedia editor Luke Kuhn and Bill White were partners in the UAP from 1996 to 2000. Both were identified as “occasional neo-Nazis” in 1998 for their tactics which included encouraging people to bomb public schools, supporting school shootings, publishing the phone numbers and addresses of private citizens to harass them (which is still a favored Luke Kuhn tactic), and their persistent appeals to young children to run away with them, while Luke Kuhn was advocating that it should be legal for adults to have sex with children.”
The first Project Veritas video was filmed largely at the location of Comet Pizza in Washington, D.C. which is the now infamous location of ‘Pizzagate’.
Kuhn was featured in the first video making the violence filled statement that, “The message has to be, we do not recognize the city government either. If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it. We will physically fight the police if they try to steal one of our places. We will go to war and you will lose.”
