The Justice Department designated NYC, Portland and Seattle as "anarchist jurisdictions" under guidelines issued by President Trump earlier this month.
Trump's Sept. 2 memo directs federal agencies to minimize funding for designated cities.

An Anarchist Jurisdiction is where Trump's goons can shoot a man and Trump doesn't lose any voters.

NY should find a way to immediately cease all tax dollars paid to the federal government. In the end, NY would be dollars ahead.

If I was mayor I would try to take any funds withheld straight out of police budgets.

Also look into withholding any tax payments to the feds until they change their partisan attack.

Way to defend the police Trump... cuts will have to be made now.

What kind of ------- Nazi -------- is this? The DOJ is designating locations as "Anarchistic Jurisdictions"? Barr so needs to be ousted from office. What a complete anti-American P-O-S.

Portland police budget $242 million
Portland Federal funds are around $50 million.

I think the police could here could use a 20% cut... start with the union representatives... they are all garbage.

"Portland police budget $242 million
Portland Federal funds are around $50 million."

So, what this means is:
Trump is Defunding the Police!
That's pretty funny.

The money has to come from somewhere... why not the police, they are the cause of the unrest in the first place.

Barr is lying the groundwork for Trump to declare martial law when he loses the election.

The working people of NYC should refuse to pay Federal taxes until that statues is lifted.

Trump doesn't want to give any money to the Blue states. He better be careful with what he says because if the people in all the Blue states stopped paying their federal taxes, then he'd see how long the Red states would last.

There are state and municipal level national associations i.e. National Governors Association, United States Conference of Mayors, etc. Blue state governors and mayors need to make it known that their organizations need to take a public position regarding Trump's efforts to penalize blue states or blue cities lest the same thing happens to red states/cities when a democrat becomes POTUS.

MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) worked to keep things in check with the Soviet Union. The same type of strategy needs to be deployed by dems wrt to repubs. Repubs need to know that dems will play just as hard as they do otherwise, dems and the people that support them will be the door mats of American society.

The only reason that many people support dems is that repubs are worse.

Everyone know why by now.

"Why does Trump hate America so much?

Trump's been a failure his whole life. Who else is he going to blame? Certainly not himself.

(BTW, Vladimir Putin is offering Trump an opportunity to reverse all that. For a price, of course)

Trumpy Designates New York City as an Anarchist Jurisdiction'?


Then I declare that Trumpy is the Antichrist.

It would seem to me the left would be supportive of this.

Many on the left seem to be supportive of defunding the police. Isn't this what Trump is doing?

This seems like something that would be supported by the extremes of both sides.

"Many on the left . . ."

Who is "many?"

WTF does "Anarchist Jurisdiction" even mean? Other than the word is meant to work up those who fall for it.
