A Bad Day for Municipality-Bureaucratic Overreach

Just in case there are a number of property rights advocates out there who are farmers, ranchers, and others who own private property, there is light at the end of the tunnel for you because of a recent landmark Supreme Court case which favored private property owners. (Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District, U.S. Supreme Court, No. 1447.)

In the ruling which was argued by the Pacific Legal Foundation(PLF), Sacramento, on behalf of Coy Koontz, governments, may owe compensation to property owners who are denied permits to develop their land. In effect, the ruling was a very serious blow to local governments and their vast municipality-bureaucratic overreach. In this case, the St. Johns River Water Dept. was stripped of its sainthood…demoted. It was a bad day.

An agencies requirements to pay fees or other payments as a condition of permit approvals will now be subject to heightened scrutiny. The decision becomes a revolutionary change in the law.

In the 18 year old battle, Florida declared much of the Koontz 15 acre parcel as protected wetlands and this became the basis of a “takings” claim which is a term used when government either denies a person the use of their land or requires them to give up some of their land, or else pay money to protect wetlands elsewhere which was in the case of Koontz.

Well, it didn’t fly and the extortionate demands were thrown a curve. Paul Beard, principal attorney with the PLF, who argued Koontz’s appeal, said the decision “raises the bar for governments to extract money from owners of land, homes or businesses, even if it may be to serve the public good.” Paul Beard went on to say, “This case reaffirms the principle that government must show a connection between what it asks for and what the property owner wants to do. Governments don’t have Carte Blanche any more to say, ‘Give us $100,000 and we’ll give you a permit.’

In summary, municipal empires have regularly used encroaching environmentalism and administrative law to bully their way into property rights disputes. A planning hierarchy such as St. Johns River has now been shown to be an unjust government entity which far exceeded its bounds. The U. S. Supreme Court ruling is a victory for those advocates of private property rights.

Barry Blake lived with his mother who owned her own home and was covered under Medicaid. When she died, the state of Kentucky “took the house … to be sold and pay those expenses” according to a suit Blake filed to recover it in 2009. The state also took the washer and dryer, their lawn mower, gardening tools, kitchen appliances and other personal items.

Surprise, Surprise! There’s a dirty little secret attached to every Affordable Health Care mandate if the plan is “subsidized” by the government. It’s called the “asset recovery” plan which is part of the “Affordable” Health Care Act. Essentially asset or estate recovery, in the end, could mean the loss of your house. More

The California legislature now aims to tighten vaccine mandates even
if vaccines are unsafe, but for now, religious exemptions or a doctor’s note may be included as part of an exemption. Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein are talking about going one step further and removing the religious exemption. In spite of this, there still remains many grave concerns concerning mandated vaccines that have not been fully tested and which have been part of the “fast tracked” program.

One of the most controversial issues for many years has been that of28056_1th
autism. For now, there has been at least 30 studies which suggest a
link between vaccines and autism.

While studies have shown that autism, Alzheimer’s, allergies, asthma
– and other chronic ailments plague people who live in Metro-America, this fact is mostly nonexistent among the Amish who are those grassy rooted farm boys and girls from yesteryear. The “experts” express
complete bafflement about this fact. More

Individuals, both Democrat and Republican, in the Federal Government, several State Governments, and the dark soul elites who give them marching and voting orders want you dead so they can have everything. If you do not get that while there is still time to resolve the situation without resorting to armed violence, you will suffer one of several varieties of ugly death.

The minimum actions you must take immediately are to see that the resources of your State are organized to protect you from three types of
death squads coordinated by the Department of Justice and the National Intelligence Apparatus and to demand that State and Federal Health Departments fully enforce provisions of the United State Code and Code of Federal Regulation enacted and promulgated to prevent legal and illegal immigrants from bringing diseases into the United States that will kill you and your children.
