Justice Dept. brands NYC an ‘anarchist jurisdiction,’ targets federal funds

New York City was among three cities labeled “anarchist jurisdictions” by the Justice Department on Sunday and targeted to lose federal money for failing to control protesters and defunding cops, The Post has learned.

Portland, Ore., and Seattle, Wash., were the other two cities on the list, which was approved by US Attorney General William Barr.

“When state and local leaders impede their own law-enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said in a statement set to be released Monday.

“We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance,’’ the AG added.

“It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.”

White House Budget Director Russ Vought is set to issue guidance to federal agencies on withdrawing funds from the cities in less than two weeks.

The list of cities eligible for defunding will be updated periodically, the feds have said.

It is not yet clear what funds are likely to be cut, but the amount of money siphoned from New York

City could be massive, given the Big Apple gets about $7 billion in annual federal aid.

The “anarchist’’ designations come after President Trump earlier this month issued a memo ordering financial retribution against cities that have been slashing their police budgets during crime waves, or tolerating violent protests sparked by the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.

  1. Any leverage, any tool to be used on these cities should be used. If there’s a dozen different laws, use all of ’em. Isn’t that what Federal Prosecutors do for any one of us little people?

  2. Trump has put the COVID Nazi governors and mayors on notice. If you broke
    it, it is your responsibility to fix it! He has been hinting that if the Sanctuary
    states and cities do not stop this shit, they are going to lose federal funding.
    The anti-2-A state of Virginia should be next on the list. Since Reagans
    legal eagles told him to pull the trigger on the line-item veto, no president
    has had the balls to test it. From a constitutional perspective, the president
    has the right to defund states, cities, Planned Parenthood, PBS, NPR and
    the environmental groups and other NGOs at will. The same goes for
    public sector unions.

    The Democrats have become the political version of the Mafia. They spend
    billions on these entities and the kickback is hundreds of millions to billions
    of dollars in the form of “campaign donations.” In a sane world, they would
    be prosecuted for violating RICO statutes!

  3. I like how Warren Wilhelm, AKA Bill Douchebagio, claims NYers can’t be bullied and he’s not afraid of Trump. If I found out 7 billion dollars in funding was likely going to be cut from my budget because my incompetent communist policies didn’t work and I was wrecking my community, I might be a bit more careful about how I tiptoe around The Donald.

    I hope Trump cuts them all off and builds the wall with the billions he saves not paying communists to communist.
