No Federal Money for YOU

By Patrick Van Roy On September 22nd, 2020

 

The Justice Department on Monday identified New York City, Portland and Seattle as jurisdictions that have allowed violence and destruction of property to persist without taking “reasonable measures” to stop criminal activity. 

In early September, President Trump issued a memorandum calling into question the continued funding of state and local governments that are permitting “anarchy, violence, and destruction in American cities.”

Following the May 25 death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police, the nation saw a summer of intense and widespread protests primarily centering on racial justice and police brutality in America. In some large American cities, those peaceful protests quickly devolved into nights of violent clashes with police officers, and rampant looting of popular shopping centers as well as smaller independently owned businesses. In some cities, the clashes and crime sprees have led to fatal shootings and arson. 

In its statement, the Justice Department identified New York City’s shooting rate, which increased 166% from August of 2019 to the same month this year, in addition to the city council’s decision to slash $1 billion from the NYPD’s 2021 budget, and Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s continued rejection of support from federal law enforcement.

Portland, Oregon, according to DOJ, has had 100 consecutive nights of violent and destructive protests, a 140% jump in its shooting rate from summer 2019 to 2020, and is under the control of Mayor Ted Wheeler who has refused the administration’s continued offers to send in federal law enforcement to quell the violence.

Finally, earlier this summer, officials in Seattle “permitted anarchists and activists to seize six square blocks of the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, naming their new enclave the ‘Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone’ (CHAZ) and then the ‘Capitol Hill Occupied Protest’ (CHOP).”

Law enforcement and fire fighters were not allowed inside the autonomous zone and the Seattle Police Department was told to evacuate its precinct that was located inside the CHOP.

These Democrat cities have played Politics with the peoples lives and welfare and deserve to lose ALL their Federal Funding .

  1. An election time political gimmick that will be shot down by the courts.

  2. Patrick supports the constitution and the rule of law. Until it disagrees with him. Coercive removal of federal funding is illegal.

  3. These cities, especially Portland, have catastrophically bad leaders who have performed terribly when leadership was called for.

    But I’m not sure that this move is proper, or that it is legal.

  4. That’s precisely what it is, Colm.

    This is illegal and Trump knows that the cities will immediately sue and that he’ll have to climb down. But that doesn’t matter as the dye of Trump taking the hard line on the ‘anarchist jurisdictions’ is already cast.

    Electoral theatrics, nothing more.

  5. When you don’t support Law Enforcement, and you place your citizens in danger for politics you are in a State of Insurrection and lot’s of options become Legal and Constitutional to reestablish Law and Order.

  6. A Governments first job, Federal, State, and Local is to ensure the safety of it’s citizens. These cities have decided to use their citizens as sacrifices to politics.

  7. Lot’s of options become Legal and Constitutional to reestablish Law and Order

    Would you like to make a wager that withdrawl of federal funding is illegal?

  8. “A Governments first job, Federal, State, and Local is to ensure the safety of it’s citizens. These cities have decided to use their citizens as sacrifices to politics.”

    As do every Republican state who refuse to introduce tough gun control measures. I’m sure you will support a Democratic President removing federal funding from them over the issue.

  9. hi peeps 40 days and 40 nights remain

    My guess is Trump needs to syphon off some money to pay his legal bills
    like he did with the bail-outs , he syphoned off millions to Trump and Assoc’s

    But he’s going down for tax fraud, like what happened to Al Capone,
    that’s how they get the mobsters .

    https://www.palmerreport.com/analysis/new-york-grand-jury-confirms-donald-trump-is-facing-criminal-charges-for-tax-fraud/32452/

    constitutional law expert ( aka Pat ) will confirm that

    “Convictions on systemic financial fraud are nearly automatic, and no president can pardon Trump on state charges.”

    correct pat ? or not ?

  10. hi Pat,

    Just to jog your memory bro when comparing stats of Which administration had the most criminal indictments? as I know you’re keen on referring to the Obama years as the most corrupt ever
    pesky facts ( of course these don’t get in the way of a good rant 😉

    just popped by for a tickle , cu 40 days

  11. Obama was pretty clean.

    Carter was exceptionally clean.

    The current guy, well you tell me.

  12. Comet kurt dazzles us with a flying visit. Do we have to wait 40 days for another sighting ? 🙂

  13. Apparently Pat supports fascists as long as they come wrapped in a republican banner

  14. lol colm, desert time I’m afraid, unless events dear chap events hasten the demise of the Don

    Actually, an asteroid, called 2018 VP, is going to come very close to the earth, by far the closest this year, on 2 Nov., the very day before the US presidential election.

    Imagine if it hit Trump!

  16. “Imagine if it hit Trump!”

    Actually, the Greatest President in history would probably relish that as a cause of death. After all he does need to do everything more spectacularly, uniquely and BIGLY than anyone else 🙂

  17. Law and Order is not Fascism EP, The blackhooded (BrownShirts) that call themselves Antifa and BLM burning, looting, and rioting are the Fascists.

  18. Law and Order is not Fascism EP…

    Not even when the forces of Law and Order are used to tear gas and beat peaceful protesters off the streets so that the Glorious Leader can go for a photo op?

  19. A few nights ago, the former-Speaker of the House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich, was censored on-air on Fox when he named George Soros as the funder (owner) of District Attorneys who would release any antifa rioters or even murderers back onto the streets to continue their mayhem. Now ‘Soros’ is just the figurehead for the cabal that funds the mayhem because, at 90 years-old, there would be less of his previous hunger for chaos and that’s even with drinking the blood of infants. ‘Soros’ is now ‘investing’ over $200 million in the BLM-antifa axis.

    Take a look at Soros and many of these other billionaire ‘philanthropists’ because it becomes more and more difficult to dispute David Icke’s assertion that these creatures are indeed “reptilian”. There’s an evil about them

  20. Not even when the forces of Law and Order are used to tear gas and beat peaceful protesters off the streets so that the Glorious Leader can go for a photo op?

    Peaceful Protestors don’t throw bottles of frozen water at the Attorney General.

  21. Peaceful Protestors don’t throw bottles of frozen water at the Attorney General.

    Correct, and they didn’t. There is not a single shred of evidence to suggest otherwise. All the cameras, all the media attention on the WH at the time, and not one person, camera or media outlet caught so much as a frozen popsicle being thrown at AG Barr before the protesters were attacked, on the orders of the president, just so he would have a clear walk to his photo op.
    You are so blinded in your adoration for Trump that you will excuse any action carried out by him or in his name. Had Obama pulled this stunt, you would be screaming for armed militia to take to the streets to remove him. As things stand, you sit quietly and nod approvingly, as armed militia uphold the whims of the Tyrant-in-Chief, and your so-called Law and Order is abused to satisfy his insecure ego.

  22. A political stunt and a dangerous one by Trump in his ever increasing effort to divide the nation.
