As someone who has lived in Queens for most of the past four decades, if you think the current conditions are "anarchy" you would have died of shock within minutes in the 80s and early to mid 90s. Crime stats-wise, NYC is still around the lowest its been for 30-40 years or more.  It's higher now, percentage-wise, for certain felonies compared to a year or two ago, but that's a pretty normal phenomenon when you've had a long period of declining crime rates.

So does this mean he's pulling funding for the investigation against him? No more COVID relief? No FEMA if there's a storm?

And what does this do for voting? Will it interfere with votes being counted? Is the USPS under Federal funding?

I swear to Dog, that if that orange lunatic is around until a coalition of foreign powers take him out, I'm going to be annoyed.

Dead for Tax Reasons: he's just trying to set up excuses for pulling some insurance fraud on his and kushner's buildings


It's not just NYC - it's Seattle and Portland as well.

You're seeing the finest fascist foreplay, a month and a half before the election that could very well determine whether this autocratic nightmare is either deposed or deified. This is what you do when you warm up the shock troops to move in and "oversee the election," because these places "can't be trusted" to manage such an important, auspicious national event.

You disrupt postal service, place "poll watchers", with quasi-military troops to back them up & intimidate voters, then dispute the election results from those "anarchist jurisdictions" when they vote for Biden anyway.

Funny thing, I moved back to the west side of the state from the Spokane area a couple of years ago.  Today, I stopped by the facebook page of one of the local news stations in Spokane to see if they picked up the story.

Holy fark.  I read the comments.  I shouldn't have done that.

Spokane, one of the 10 most dangerous cities in America, is calling Seattle, with a dramatically lower crime rate even after this summer's events, a hell hole.

Nope.  This is different.

Shootings have doubled, and homicide is up 50%.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/02/ny​r​egion/nyc-shootings-murders.html

It's not been this bad since 2011.  That's not normal year-to-year variation.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/02/ny​r​egion/nyc-shootings-murders.html

And that's just for the handful of months since this thing started.   You're right that it's not like it was back in the 1970's through the first half of the 1990's, but it's not nothing either, and it's moving in the wrong direction.

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 white citizens," Attorney General William Barr said in a statement.

Pretty much this, and the NYPD has enthusiastically signed up to be the Eisatzgruppen because they are all traitorous thugs at heart who want an excuse to visit their sadistic desires upon people without any fear of punishment.

The high crime eras of the 80s and 90s are a direct result of soft on crime approaches.  Letting people out on bail for every thing, or releasing them from prison early on parole, engendered a contempt for the courts that led people to commit even more crimes.

In the 80s and 90s NYC was not going in a direction of being softer towards crime.  They became tough on crime, culminating in the broken windows theory.  And guess what, it worked.

Today, despite violent crime skyrocketing, NY has decided to go completely pansy ass on crime.  People are being released without any bail at all and are just walking back onto the street and immediately committing more crime.

So yeah, maybe federal funding shouldn't be contributed to a state and or city that is actively trying to make the situation worse and not better.

Not even Portland is anywhere near as bad as the right-wingers and "Independents" like to imagine. The overwhelming majority of protests are peaceful, and riots happen around a couple blocks, at best. And are usually instigated by cops and/or badgeless Nazis, for that matter.
