    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...

Wahler why he is using eminent domain to take away a family farm from its rightful owners - the Halpers. "We found Mayor Wahler and started questioning him. He walked away. 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>

    Lenin Awards N.J. Mayor With Eminent Domain Medal By Red Square 5/16/2006, 5:52 pm Lenin endorses a communist haven in New Jersey Eminent domain expropriations are sweeping the American motherland like a red tide of Socialism raised by the increasing gravitational pool of Marxist thought. The Mayor of Piscataway, New Jersey, has recently seized the last remaining farm in the area in order to turn it into an empty space - the epitome of Socialist improvement, a.k.a. the Greater Good™. Upon hearing that the kulaks and other greedy bourgeois property owners of New Jersey are being liquidated as a class,...
  • Souter's farmhouse spared

    03/17/2006 3:25:37 PM PST · by Crackingham · 24 replies · 1,507+ views
    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 would like to respond to Jim Thompson ("Weare must not look to punish Souter,"Monitor, Jan. 11) and clarify a few things for Weare voters. It is not only my assumption that most people in Weare oppose the abuse of eminent domain for economic development but also a fact: UNH conducted a poll, and over 90 percent are against it. I don't think readers of this paper need a civics lesson on how a bill becomes law or on the role of the courts. The ones requiring lessons are the politicians and judges.

    Eminent domain opponents are planning a rally in Weare Jan. 21-22 to gather signatures for a petition aimed at seizing the property of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice David Souter. Dates for the rally were recently announced on the FoxNews television program, "Hannity & Colmes," by Logan Clements, a California activist who's been outspoken against eminent domain since the Supreme Court's decision last summer in the Kelo vs. New London case. In that case, Souter helped form the 5-4 majority, backing the rights of a Connecticut town to seize private property in favor of a private development if greater economic...

A California man angry about a recent Supreme Court decision that allowed a Connecticut city to seize private property for commercial use is trying to turn the ruling against one high court justice. Logan Darrow Clements wants to build a hotel on an eight-acre property owned by Supreme Court Justice David Souter in the small New England town of Weare, N.H., as a way to protest the eminent domain ruling. Clements says that putting a hotel on Souter’s property would make a lot more money for the town, and would also make a point about...

Second, I met a local attorney who will help us with the legal issues involved. Third, I met a developer who is considering taking over this project so Freestar can start four similar developments. Fourth, I gave a speech outlining why the Lost Liberty Hotel Project is both an ethical and effective strategy to help stop eminent domain abuse. This project is helping keep eminent domain abuse in the news. Already, one...
