The End of Private Property

Yet another great threat to our way of life…
From WND promoting Whistle Blower Magazine:

Here are just a few examples taken from the avalanche of property confiscations unleashed by last summer’s 5-4 Supreme Court ruling in Kelo v. City of New London:

  • Oakland, Calif.: A week after the Kelo ruling, Oakland city officials used eminent domain to evict John Revelli from the downtown tire shop his family has owned since 1949. Revelli and a neighboring business owner had refused to sell their property to make way for a new housing development. Said Revelli of his fight with the City, “We thought we’d win, but the Supreme Court took away my last chance.”
  • Boynton Beach, Fla.: Under the threat of eminent domain, the 50-year-old Alex Sims Barber Shop is selling to the City of Boynton Beach to make way for new residences and storefronts. Guarn Sims called the Kelo ruling “the nail in the coffin” that ended his hope of saving the business.
  • Baltimore, Md. Baltimore’s redevelopment agency, the Baltimore Development Corp., is exercising eminent domain to acquire more than 2,000 properties in East Baltimore for a biotech park and new residences. BDC Executive Vice President Andrew B. Frank told the Daily Record the Kelo decision “is very good news. It means many of the projects on which we’ve been working for the last several years can continue.”
  • Boston, Mass.: Two days after the Kelo decision, Boston City Council President Michael Flaherty called on the mayor of Boston to seize South Boston waterfront property from unwilling sellers for a private development project.
  • Richmond Heights, Mo.: City officials are taking bids to demolish 200 homes in the Hadley Township Neighborhood, just to turn the land over to a private developer who will build more homes.
  • Spring Valley, N.Y.: Less than a week after the Kelo decision, Spring Valley officials asked the New York Supreme Court to authorize the condemnation of 15 downtown properties in an area where a private developer plans to construct residential and retail buildings.
  • Ventor City, N.J.: Mayor Tim Kreischer wants to demolish 126 buildings – mom-and-pop shops, $200,000 homes, and apartments – to erect luxury condos, high-end specialty stores, and a parking garage.

“THE END OF PRIVATE PROPERTY” features powerful investigative journalism by Joseph Farah, Sarah Foster, Dana Berliner, Steven Greenhut, Walter Williams, Charlotte Allen, David Kupelian and others, and documents the widespread theft of private property by government today.

We have got to do something about this nonsense. This is the government taking your PRIVATE property to give to another PRIVATE citizen. This is yet another plank of Communism. There are no private property rights, it all belongs to the government. Is this the country you want to live in? Is this your view of America?

  1. The forced sale of ones property to another, in consequence, places that owner and any labors that he may have placed unto that property, untoward the involuntary servitude of the other, and unto the community that forced the sale. The community that allowed the buying of that property, before its decided taking of that property, was well compensated for that property in an agreement of social compact and of contract, that did not include any known or written clause to the taking of that property fore the purposed sale of that property to another. Therefore that community is now in violation of that contract and of the agreed to social compact so subscribed and ratified.

  2. The buyer of said property did not then agree to be positioned as if a whore, to have his favors presented as if to the highest bidder.

  3. A very sinister aspect of these horrid actions is that one’s property will typicaly be condemed as part of the use of eminet domain.

    Instead of being given just compensation as is laid out as part of legitimate eminent domain, they are given pennies on the dollar for their precious property.

  4. That is right doc,
    Were also is there to be justice and justifiable compensation, when the lions share of the financial benefit is to be placed in to the hands of the corporation that is now allowed to steal your land?

    Even a pimp knows better then to assign, to the client more then he will receive himself, for the use of his property, the whore.

  5. “This state, which subordinates the interests of the ego to the conservation of the community, is really the first premise for every truly human culture… The basic attitude from which such activity arises, we call — to distinguish it from egoism and selfishness — idealism. By this we understand only the individual’s capacity to make sacrifices for the community, for his fellow men.”
    -Adolf Hitler

  6. If enough people petition the government, could eminet domain be used to nationalize the oil fields?

  7. Nobody on the face of this planet could have made a more appropriate comment!
    Good job Tom
    That is of course assuming the derogatory nature of your question.
