    We need YOU to drive your RV, pitch your tents, and take a stand against eminent domain abuse by camping out at the Halper Farm until the moment of eviction. We hope it will be like Valley Forge without the frostbite and Woodstock without the mud. We have received word that the government plans to send over a large number of well armed police officers to evict this family from what is rightfully theirs. We must draw a line in the sand and say: NO MORE! We must defend our constitutional right to own property. If this event isn't worthy...

We followed him and kept questioning him. Within a few moments police officers confronted us. The mayor kept...

    <p>LOST LIBERTY HOTEL GETS SECOND WIND--AN AIRPORT Eminent Domain for Hot Air Balloons?</p> <p>"I'm looking for a small town in New Hampshire to make a loud roar against the Kelo decision on its anniversary-June 23rd," stated Logan Darrow Clements.</p> <p>According to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in "Kelo vs. City of New London" a government may use eminent domain to seize homes and land to promote economic development or increase tax revenue. Meanwhile, New Hampshire statute XXXIX chapter 423 allows a town to seize land for an airport outside its border. Since this statute does not require the land to be adjacent territory any town in New Hampshire could seize land inside any other town. Thus any town in New Hampshire could seize David Souter's land in Weare, N.H. or Stephen Breyer's land in Plainfield, N.H. for the creation of an airport.</p>

    In June, U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter sided with the 5-4 majority in the pernicious "Kelo" decision, which held that the foundering city of New London, Conn., could seize well-kept-up private homes and turn those properties over to private, third-party developers based on the developers' promises to pay more taxes. Outraged champions of property rights decided to follow precisely Justice Souter's own logic. They collected the signatures needed to place on the agenda of the March 14 Weare, N.H., town meeting a proposal that the municipality seize and demolish a 200-year-old farmhouse owned by Justice Souter to turn the...

    WEARE, N.H. - Residents on Saturday rejected a proposal to evict U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter from his farmhouse to make way for the "Lost Liberty Hotel." A group angered by last year's court decision that gave local governments more power to seize people's homes for economic development had petitioned to use the ruling against the justice. But voters deciding which issues should go on the town's March ballot replaced the group's proposal with a call to strengthen New Hampshire's law on eminent domain. "This is a game," said Walter Bohlin. "Why would we take something from one of...

    Jilted Souter By Published 1/24/2006 12:05:57 AM   When television cameras were first brought in to record Senate proceedings in 1986 (thus realizing the Founders' idea of a bicameral House), Ronald Reagan offered the senators some wisdom gleaned from his acting experience. "Learn your lines, don't bump into the furniture -- and in the kissing scenes, keep your mouth closed." Democrat senators only kiss up to Supreme Court nominees when they are liberals; so why are so many of them displaying pursy lips after the Alito committee hearings? Possibly because they have the sensation of sucking on lemons. If...

    I commend the Weare selectmen for doing what would, under the natural interpretation of the Constitution, be the right thing. The right of eminent domain ought to be restricted to cases of genuine public use: where the government either actually uses directly the taken property or gives the public a legal right to use the property. Unfortunately, that is no longer the rule. Under Kelo vs. New London, it is effectively open season on private property owners. In interpreting the limits of eminent domain in the Constitution, the Supreme Court over the years began distorting the natural concept of public...

    Eminent domain and just desserts By: RICK REISS - For The Californian Where is the American Civil Liberties Union? Our "royal" U.S. Supreme Court just erased private property rights in America. The Kelo v. New London decision effectively reinterpreted the Fifth Amendment to allow the use of eminent domain by local governments to redistribute wealth from one party to another. Re-distributing wealth has long been the mantra of socialism. So we might as well welcome in the new era of a brave new world. Eminent domain is the power of government entities to forcefully buy out private property for the...

    Axis Of Logic ^ | June 30, 2005 | Logan Clements w/ Axis editorial note
    Editor's Note: The U.S. public remains in shock at the belligerence and audacity of the U.S. Supreme Court in their "Kelo vs. City of New London" decision. The decision gives the government the right to take the property of a private landowner and give it to a private corporation as an act of Eminent Domain (ED). Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter made love to the corporate empire by voting for this incredible land-grab act. Perhaps we should him send the ED Survival Kit pictured above? Logan Darrow Clements is trying to serve up a little justice of his own...

    <p>U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice David H. Souter lives in a $100,000 rustic farmhouse in Weare, N.H. -- population 8,400.</p> <p>Mr. Justice Souter is said to love the residence and the quiet peace it affords. However, when you take into account a California man's idea for building a hotel on the property, the justice's attachment to his abode fades into the inconsequential.</p>

    "Am I taking this seriously? But of course," said Charles Meany, Weare's code enforcement officer.

WEARE, N.H. -- Following a Supreme Court ruling last week that gave local governments power to seize private property, someone has suggested taking over Justice David Souter's New Hampshire farmhouse and turning it into a hotel. "The justification for such an eminent domain action is that our hotel...

    A critic of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that governments may seize private property for economic development is suggesting the process be used to replace Justice David Souter's New Hampshire home with a hotel. "The justification for such an eminent domain action is that our hotel will better serve the public interest as it will bring in economic development and higher tax revenue to Weare," Logan Darrow Clements wrote in a fax to town officials in Weare Tuesday. [. . .] Clements is CEO of Los Angeles-based Freestar Media, which fights "abusive" government. "This is not a prank," he said...

    Furious over the recent Supreme Court ruling that lets local governments grab private property for new development, a gadfly yesterday asked a New Hampshire town to seize the home of Justice David Souter. Logan Darrow Clements sent a letter to the town of Weare, N.H., proposing to build "The Lost Liberty Hotel" and "Just Desserts Cafe" on Souter's property. "The justification for such an eminent domain action is that our hotel will better serve the public interest as it will bring in economic development," he wrote.

    Just sent to hooters via email hooterspr@hooters.com Dear Hooters: I understand that a developer, Mr. Logan Clements, has started the process with the Weare, New Hampshire Selectmen to discuss taking the property on 34 Cilley Hill Road in order to build a theme hotel there. I have been talking about taking a vacation to New Hampshire for years and I would certainly be interested in staying in such an interesting and pertinent theme hotel as Mr. Clements proposes. I hope Hooters would give due consideration to his plan and consider opening a Hooters there, perhaps calling it Hooters at Souters....

    WEARE — Even as late as yesterday afternoon, residents here were scratching their heads over the commotion a one-page fax from thousands of miles away had caused Tuesday. "We're trying to collect taxes, not answering phones," said town clerk Evelyn Connor about what she said was a distraction from today's tax collection deadline. By yesterday afternoon, at least 50 different media outlets had called looking for comment. "We're too busy for this," she said, shaking her head. The commotion began yesterday when a fax came for Chip Meany, the town's building code enforcement officer. The letter, sent by Logan Darrow...

    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...
