A hotel just begging to be built
The Lost Liberty Hotel would provide a much greater public service than David Souter's old pile. Condemn it now!
David Souter watch out, your recent decision in Kelo vs. City of New London is coming back to bite.
Here's the press release from Freestar Media:
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 Cafe" 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.

Billy D. has the following interesting comment. Since he's so close to this story we'll be watching for any developments or photos from his website In Deo Veritas. UT has reporters spanning the globe to keep you abreast of all the breaking news -- (except of course Aruba -- where all the hotel rooms have been booked by reporters from Fox News)

I listened to an interview with Clements this morning. I have an update on my blog, but the jist is, the selectmen do not like the judge at all, in fact they rather loathe him.He's had millionaires call and pledge financial backing for the hotel (which, BTW, would rake in a fortune!) and this is snowballing into a realistic proposition.I will have pictures, should this ever happen, as I live only about 30 minutes away.
