Following President Trump’s memo to identify jurisdictions not upholding the rule of law,  the Justice Department (DOJ) has categorized New York City as one of three locales that “have permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities.”

Consequently, DOJ has designated the Big Apple an “anarchist jurisdiction.”

The label represents more than a verbal condemnation, as it comes with potential financial consequences. (WNBC)

Trump’s order gives the director of the Office of Management and Budget 30 days to issue guidance to federal agencies on restricting eligibility for federal grants for the cities on the DOJ list. Such grants make up a huge portion of NYC’s already strapped annual budget — more than $7 billion in fiscal 2021 alone, or 7.5% of the city’s projected total revenue.

In justifying its decision, the DOJ cited New York City’s rising gun violence, cuts to the NYPD’s budget, and moves by various district attorneys not to prosecute charges related to protests earlier this summer.

“We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. 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,” Attorney General William Barr said in a statement.

Both the city and the state have threatened to sue the federal government over the possible DOJ classification.

Portland, Oregon and Seattle have also received the “anarchist jurisdiction” classification.

Help President Trump Stop Joe Biden [ACT NOW]


    1. NOT if I have any say in it! No way I should be forced to pay for some “Union” public employees bloated retirement! Only 11% of Americans work for a union. IF we close the USPS and sell it to a private company, that number would drop a lot.
      Many parents now send their kids to “Religious” schools here.Why? Because most high school grads can’t write their own name, or do basic math. They are “UNEMPLOYABLE”!

    2. I would imagine a LOT OF BUSINESSES with World Wide connections will relocate due entirely to the FAILURES of both THE MAYOR AND THE GOVERNOR.

      Acres of empty office buildings will be available and below rock bottom prices.

      1. Those offices wouldn’t stay empty for long. The imbeciles running NYC would grab them and turn them into taxpayer-funded housing for homeless mental patients and dopers.

  1. Good. A DOJ with guts. Now, it’s time to relieve Wray from his FBI position. Stick it to these anti-American cities, until they squeal, like little piggy’s.

  2. they did it to themselves. they permitted it to happen, yes, and they endorsed it. they need to pay for the mess they allowed it to be

  3. Now, the next move by the DOJ should be to arrest that clown of a mayor DiBlasio and prosecute him as an accessory to the crimes being committed. His actions, or more accurately, LACK of action, is a direct result of his open support for rioters and other criminals.

  4. Absolutely. There are more than just three anarchist jurisdictions in the USA but this is a start. So glad DOJ finally figured this anarchist thing out. They’ve been flopping around in the breeze now for almost 4 months. They’re lawyers you know! But this is a very good move and I hope it turns into action and not just tape and talk.

  5. We have the ability to stop the communists leftist, Democrats. All we have to do is CUT THE MONEY from taxpayers and watch then disappear as they can no longer buy votes with our money.

  6. GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP !!!!! You are doing everything that needs to be done, to protect the America people, from the lunatic democrats…they have All lost their minds …..They are so filled with hate …it is destroying them….
