Freestar Media: "Lost Liberty Hotel" proposed on Justice Souter's land
Freestar Media ^ | Monday, June 27, 2005 | Logan Darrow Clements

Posted on 06/28/2005 3:40:00 AM PDT by Smile-n-Win

Weare, New Hampshire (PRWEB) Could a hotel be built on the land owned by Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter? A new ruling by the Supreme Court which was supported by Justice Souter himself itself might allow it. A private developer is seeking to use this very law to build a hotel on Souter's land.

Justice Souter's vote in the "Kelo vs. City of New London" decision allows city governments to take land from one private owner and give it to another if the government will generate greater tax revenue or other economic benefits when the land is developed by the new owner.

On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of Mr. Souter's home.

Clements, CEO of Freestar Media, LLC, points out that the City of Weare will certainly gain greater tax revenue and economic benefits with a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road than allowing Mr. Souter to own the land.

The proposed development, called "The Lost Liberty Hotel" will feature the "Just Desserts Café" and include a museum, open to the public, featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America. Instead of a Gideon's Bible each guest will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged."

Clements indicated that the hotel must be built on this particular piece of land because it is a unique site being the home of someone largely responsible for destroying property rights for all Americans.

"This is not a prank" said Clements, "The Towne of Weare has five people on the Board of Selectmen. If three of them vote to use the power of eminent domain to take this land from Mr. Souter we can begin our hotel development."

Clements' plan is to raise investment capital from wealthy pro-liberty investors and draw up architectural plans. These plans would then be used to raise investment capital for the project. Clements hopes that regular customers of the hotel might include supporters of the Institute For Justice and participants in the Free State Project among others.

Short of a reverse ruling, I say let them feel the wrath of their rape of the Constitution and use it against them at every turn. Scum deserve scum treatment.

What's even better is that this can be used to require the windmills to generate electricity on Nantucket, where the haughty, French looking junior Senator from Massachusetts who also served in Vietnam has property.

Sorry, where his family has property. :)

There needs to be a ping list on this one. If there is one I want to be on it, please.

OK, you're my pingee #1. If anyone else wants to get on, FreepMail me!

Freestar, if there is any news regarding the project, tell me and I'll ping all interested Freepers.

Actually, with the growing national trash disposal problem I think a public dump would help serve the community well. :)

I'm sure Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter would agree based on his recent ruling.

I thought Souter lived in a cave with his mother before that idiot Bush I pulled him out of obscurity.

His mother is the only woman he would live with.

but neither was the New London, CT neighborhood. They just have to re-zone it, and when they see the potential for the tax income, how could they say no?

I just decided that my family will do this too. A weeklong stay at "Lost Liberty Hotel" every year will be the perfect vacation!

Now that I think of it, an extended family reunion would pack the entire hotel for a week. When can we start booking to show the city council that the place will be full year round?

I think this may need to be a hotel chain or franchise. The next eminent domain project will involve property owned by Weare city council members that vote against this project. All for the greater public good, of course.

Good speaking with you on the phone, Logan. Are there any FReeper real estate brokers in the area? Or any FReepers in the area? Let's find a local broker who can tell us the value of the property. That is a good place to start. As a commercial real estate broker here in California, I'm in.

Sound great we got 4 other justices to go. Then we can follow them around buy up any new property they get for hotels. Of course we would give them fair market value. LOL

Don't stop at the supreme court's loathsome amnd fearsome tyrants, though.

Every activist-judge-promoting liberal politician's property is surely now fair game and up for local, state and/or feral-gummint grabs!?

We've got the Ag preserve here. Every development in the preserve requires a county wide vote.

But I nominate Sea Cliff in SF with the best residential view of the Golden Gate and the Pacific Ocean.
