This is a gross abuse. Violates 8th amendment (at least)
All things belong to the Emperor.
It is a very unwise policy to use the criminal law as a “revenue enhancer.” If a government follows such a policy they lose in the eyes of the governed that dispassionate, neutral status so necessary for effective peaceful governance. Those that as of today who are currently in power in the federal government, and in some states, are so stupid and greedy they do not relaize they are setting themselves up for a savage reaction.
I think Obama’s hubris is such, that I think someone got in his head to think that he is going to own all of this, and I mean OWN, like he bought it all. The government is going to be his personal stewart and he is looking at owning the world or transfering this to whomever he is prostituted to, be it a foreign leader, government, nation, or even a private party.
He is now moving with landlord like legislation to check if your “whore”-house is Obamacare fit enough with OSHA type compliance controls, Singapore style.
Agenda 21 needs someone of such stupid hubris as Obama thinking he owns it. The agenda itself follows such a pattern and has to rely into this kind of mad person. No other sane person would have the “idiot chutzpah” he has.
What is sad is that DC is so sold out to all the foreigners living in DC and applauding Bill Clinton at the UN during impeachment processes, that DC is at war against us in their prostitution to the intimidation this gang of foreign leaders is impressing on us.
An excuse and a distraction. The left hates private property (see the communist manifesto) and uses any means they can think of to seize it
In the USA they don’t call it seizure - someone might remember hearing something like “right of the people .... to be secure .... search and seizure...”
But it’s illegal seizure of private property without just compensation.
Americans don’t want to hear it, but this country has already slid into socialism.
I always love selective enforcement of the law. Obviously, this building’s owner doesn’t have a huge law firm sitting at his beck and call, therefore an easy target to use forfeiture law to seize the property. I’m sure the feds will seize the convention center next...
Wow. There’s only one thing to do about this.
Legalize all drugs so this never happens again.
DEA is just another out-of-control federal agency under Tyrant Obama.
BATF, EPA, DEA = ALL NUTTY, CONSTITUTION-HATING VENGEFUL LIBRARIANS.
“... Use a $37 Pot Sale to Seize a $1.5 Million Anaheim Building...”
That looks like a good way to make a nice profit. Where do I invest?
Seems rather simple...don’t rent to an illegal drug operation.
The “War on Drugs’’ is all about the money. Follow the money. The good guys, the bad guys, ain’t a dimes difference between the two. It’s all about the money.
And people wonder why i eant to end the WOD.
