No I am not talking about Syria or Iraq or Afghanistan…..
There has been protests going on all over this nation and it has been met with the fascistic force of the police with the encouragement of the DoJ……now they (DoJ) has decided that some of our major cities are to be called “terrorists” or better yet “Anarchists Jurisdictions”……..
The Justice Department identified New York City; Portland, Ore.; and Seattle as three cities that could have federal funding slashed under a memorandum by President Trump that sought to identify localities that permit “anarchy, violence and destruction in American cities.” The designation, which could open the door for the federal government to cut off some funding to the cities, drew immediate criticism from local elected officials. It comes as Trump throughout the summer has cast American cities run by Democratic mayors as under siege by violence and lawlessness, despite the fact that most of the demonstrations against racial injustice have been largely peaceful. An attempt to cut off federal funding to the cities would likely be met with immediate legal challenges and several federal judges ruled in favor of municipalities over similar attempts to withhold funding tied to immigration policies.
The Justice Department said the three cities were designated because they meet four main criteria, including “whether a jurisdiction forbids the police force from intervening to restore order amid widespread or sustained violence or destruction” and whether the city “disempowers or defunds police departments.” Attorney General William Barr said he hoped the designation would convince the cities to “reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.” In a joint statement, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan decried the designation as “thoroughly political and unconstitutional.”
How pathetic can this administration get? (That is rhetorical for I know it can get a lot more pathetic)
I have a problem with this type of labeling…but it is what I expect from the GOP and their pathetic attempt to stay in power.
I am sure that there will be supporters of the idiot in the White House that will take exception…..but what is it they say….”the truth hurts”
When I write about the threat of white supremacist terrorism, I often receive complaints from readers that I am focusing on the wrong problem and that my articles are ill-informed and misleading (I’m putting the complaints politely). Instead of focusing on white supremacists, they argue, I should instead write about the “real” terrorists like antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Their opinions are backed up by statements from the police and Trump administration officials and images of burning cities. The terrorism label, for them, is a way of distinguishing who is in the wrong. Brian Jenkins, a leading scholar of terrorism, observed in 1981: “Terrorism is what the bad guys do.”
Time to start making plans to have the people in this corruption called the Trump Administration to hold them in contempt of the nation and accountable for the disastrous and hateful policies.
