K STREET, Wash. DC---The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that local government shills may force property owners to sell out and make way for wealthy developers when officials decide it would benefit those wealthy developers and can demonstrate that perhaps there might be some trickle down for the "little shitbags we call the public," even if the property is not blighted and the new project's success is not guaranteed e.g. the principles steal all the money and put t in off-shore accounts while making graphically obscene political donations.
The 5 to 4 ruling provided the strong affirmation that state and local governments had sought for their increasing use of eminent domain for graft, especially in the Northeast, where many city centers have been left to decay yet property values remain high.
Meanwhile, the Defense Department began working yesterday with a private marketing firm, BeNow Inc. a subsidiary of New Sparta Ltd., to create a database and training camps for high school students ages 16 to 18 and all college students to help the military identify insecure and troubled children who might be recruited, what is known as "cradle robbing" among recruiters, without their parents and teachers interference. "Most of these kids are already fucked up. The military, a little taste of blood, will certainly help fuck them up even more until they are the typically fucked up American," declared Paul Pudd, CEO of BeNow/New Sparta.
"Fuckin' Vietnam made the draft too high profile. This is a sneaky, underhanded lowlife way of gettin' bodies. That's its appeal to the military," said Gen. I.M. Abezaidmiselph, in charge of brainwashing minors about the advantages of forever limiting your potential by doing a stint in the armed services called Operation Thickening the Bone In Your Head.
"It's Your Patriotic Duty To Make me Rich. That's What All These Fuckin' Capitalism=Democracy Lectures In The Media Have Been About'. And Fuck China. Ignore That Shit!"
"We need to get the parent out of the warrior process. Fuck family values unless that mother or father is already a dupe of the kleptocracy. We'd like to see criminal sanctions against any parent who stands in the way of our turning their son or daughter it meat scraps to enrich ourselves," said the newly public voice of White House Chief of Stink, Karl 'Please Don't Hit Me' Rove.
Wall Street Discovers Stalin: Use/Wealth Determines Whether Property Shall Remain Private Or Not
Opponents, including property-rights activists and advocates for elderly and low-income urban residents, argued that forcibly shifting land from one private owner to another, without compensation, violates the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, which prohibits the taking of property by government except for "public use."
Kindasleezie Rice Comes Out Against Land Redistribution/Homeland Ownership In Zimbabwe While Her Masters Applaud Land Distribution Upward To The Wealthy. "I see no analogy," sprouts Rice. Of course, you don't.
Justice John Paul Stevens, writing for the majority of wealthy developers, bankers and investment firms, cited cases in which other courts, equally susceptible to the subtle business quid prop quos or just the old fashioned envelope filled with cash delivered in a rolled up Washington Post, has interpreted "public use" to include not only such traditional projects as cameras on every street corner, round ups and beatings of the homeless or overtime for police officers committing homicides for public officials but also slum clearance of homes deemed slums after abuse by their landlords and land redistribution that was geared to theoretically benefit the poor but inevitably enriched only a few wealthy developers. "That's where the fat fucks that control this venue got the idea. If you can make $100 million stealing land to build sub-standard housing to sell your drugs in. You can make $100 billion by stealing land and putting up a Medical Center to sell your drugs in." He concluded that a "public purpose" such as creating jobs in a depressed city can also justify a violation of the Fifth Amendment if the kick backs are in order.
The court should not "put restrictions on this kind of criminal behavior" on the part of local governments, Stevens added, noting that "making a lot of money for yourself under the guise of [p]romoting economic development is a traditional and long accepted function of government."
O'Connor Calls The Ruling 'Maoist.' Questions Possible Chinese Influence On Supreme Court.
Stevens's opinion provoked a strongly worded dissent from Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who wrote that the ruling favors the most powerful and influential in society and leaves small property owners little recourse except to take up arms, barracade themselves in their homes only to be brutally murdered by swat teams their tax money paid for and be made out to look like lone nuts by the media that has no room at the top except for people that are truly lone nuts like Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Rather and Kopple. Now, she wrote, the "specter of condemnation and seizure hangs over all property. As Mao said, 'Nothing is to prevent the State from replacing any Motel 6 with a Ritz-Carlton, any home with a shopping mall, or any farm with a factory.'"
From The Mouth Of Babes
A man not unfamiliar with stuffed envelopes in the Sunday Supplement, D.C. Mayor Anthony A. Williams, who serves as president of the National League of Cities, issued a statement praising the court for upholding "one of the most powerful tools city officials have to rejuvenate their bank accounts." The National League of Cities differs from the American league of Cities in that the American League has the DH rule.
In addition to its international repercussions, the court's decision removed a possible obstacle to the District's plans to build a baseball stadium along the Anacostia River waterfront and to redevelop the Skyland Shopping Center in Southeast -- a project Williams said could generate 300 jobs and $3.3 million in exploitable tax revenue for the rich while displacing 14,000 residents and increasing the homeless population by thousands.
A number of home owners in those areas had hoped the court ruling would help them resist the city's exercise of eminent domain, thereby throwing them out on the street. But David A. Fuss, an attorney for several of them, acknowledged that the court's ruling "is going to have a major impact. They could come in and kill you and nobody would make a squeak. Its like every simple fuck with something some rich guy wants can be treated like a member of the Weather Underground or Black Panthers. Its like your some fuckin' peasant in El Salvador when Proctor & Gamble comes a callin' with its Marines."
Next Paragraph Speaks Volumes
The redevelopment program at issue in yesterday's case -- the plan of the Connecticut city of New London to turn 90 acres of waterfront homes into office buildings, upscale housing for the terminally wealthy, a marina for people with serious bread that own boats, and other facilities to expensive for those getting their asses kicked out to ever dream of using near a $300 million research center with bribes for all being built by pharmaceuticals giant Pfizer to make drugs for all-- was also expected to generate hundreds of outsourced jobs and, city officials say, $680,000 in property tax revenue even though Pfizer and the developers are getting tax breaks that make even that paltry figure just part of the damned lie.
New London, with a population of about 24,000, is reeling from the 1996 closing of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, which had employed more than 1,500 people and was moved to China when the sea around New London dried up.
But owners of 15 homes on 1.54 acres of the proposed site had refused to go. One of them, Susette Kelo, had extensively remodeled her home and wanted to stay for its view of the water. Another, Wilhelmina Dery, was born in her house in 1918 and has lived there her entire life.
"We'll have to forcibly remove them fuckers," said private security chief, Elmer Pick. "We gonna use this shit here as training for our Iraqi contracts 'specially now the court says we don't gotta pay no mind to killin' homeowners ' cause they mostly just renting the money to "buy" the house from a bank. And the banks always get theirs."
Don't Ask Fuckin' Libertarians To Do Nothin' Right
The Connecticut Supreme Court upheld the city's plan, so the homeowners, represented by lawyers from the libertarian Institute for Justice, appealed the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
According to the institute, the New London plan, which the City Council approved in 2000, is typical of "eminent domain abuse," which has spawned more than 10,000 threatened or filed condemnations involving a transfer of property from one private party to another in 41 states between 1998 and 2002.
Scott Bullock, a lawyer for the institute, said that the only recourse for property owners facing condemnation under eminent domain would be to sue in state court based on the property rights provisions of each state's constitution and then take up arms like our libertarian founding fathers intended and as soon as the libertarians get out of the way, open fire.
New London City Manager Richard M. Brown, shopping at Rockefeller Yachts in nearby, Grift, Connecticut said he was "very pleased" by the court's decision. He said the city hopes to restart its redevelopment plan, which has lost money so far, partly because "I stole it blind."
In the disputed neighborhood, known as Fort Trumbull, most residents sold out and their homes were demolished rather than face the wrath of the state and long drawn court battle that could leave them with nothing. The site, like most of urban America that has been made ripe for theft and development, is now a flat expanse of dusty, rock-strewn soil dotted by the few remaining houses. Signs advertising the development site are withered and torn; builders who once considered projects have moved on, preying on other municipalities deterred by the publicity.
Stevens was joined in the majority by Justices Anthony M. Kennedy, David H. Souter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen G. Breyer.
Kennedy's vote, always for sale, was nonetheless something of a surprise because he had expressed strong sympathy for property-rights claims in past cases. But in a brief concurring opinion he explained that the New London plan showed no sign of improper favoritism toward any one private developer "all the sharks were getting a taste. And as for sympathy; with us fucks, that and $3.00 will get you a cup of coffee if your $50.00 gets you past the security.
O'Connor was joined in her dissent by Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist and Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. They wrote that the majority had tilted in favor of those with "disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms" because they wanted the vote to go the other way in support of wealthy constituencies who have bought them and whose economic interests are opposed to uses of eminent domain in such cases as more ecologically friendly use of land.
And in a separate dissent, Thomas sounded a rare note of agreement with liberal groups such as the NAACP, which had sided with the property owners in the case.
He protested that urban renewal has historically resulted in displacement of minorities, the elderly and the poor.
"Regrettably, the predictable consequence of the Court's decision will be to exacerbate these effects," he wrote.
Military Wants Eminent Domain Over Your Children As Operation 'New Sparta' Is Launched
The program is provoking a temper tantrum among privacy advocates. The new database will include personal information including birth dates, Social Security numbers, e-mail addresses, favorite music, clothes, foods, grade-point averages, ethnicity, sexual orientation, psychological weaknesses, relationship with parents, medical records including pregnancies, miscarriages and venereal diseases, drug use, and what subjects the students are studying.
The data will be managed by BeNow Inc. of Wakefield, Mass. A division of New Sparta Ltd., one of many marketing firms that have turned to profiling children for their combat readiness for the U.S. military as well as private security firms around the globe.
"The purpose of the system . . . is to sign up these malcontent little pricks before they realize they've been had. We want people so stupid and inexperienced that they'll wake up half way through their second tour and go, Holy Christ! I'm in the shit!" according to the official notice of the program.
Privacy advocates summoned all of their courage to say the plan appeared to be an effort to circumvent laws that restrict the government's right to collect or hold citizen information by turning to private firms to do the work.
"Anything To Get That Little Fucker Out Of The House And Out Of My Stash."
Some information on high school students already is given to military recruiters in a separate program under provisions of the 2002 No Child Fit To Die In Iraq Left Behind Act. Recruiters have been using the information to contact students at home and offering them dope, angering some parents but gaining high marks from most.
School systems that fail to provide that information lose federal funding and are put in a suspicious aliens file in John Negroponte's washroom, although, in exchange for their taxes audited and their homes searched repeatedly, individual parents or students can withhold information that would be transferred to the military by their districts. John Moriarty, president of the PTA at Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, said the issue has "generated a great deal of angst but no action" among many parents participating in an e-mail discussion group.
Under the new system, additional data will be collected from commercial data thieves, state drivers' license records, drug dealers and other sources, including private information already held by the military.
"Using multiple sources allows us to put the screws on candidates and extort some to join the military," according to written statements provided by Pentagon spokeswoman Lt. Col. Ellen Krenke in response to questions. "This program is important because it helps bolster the effectiveness of all the services' recruiting and retention efforts because we can blackmail 16 year olds with their most private dirty laundry."
The Pentagon's statements added that anyone can "opt out" of the system by providing detailed personal information that will be kept in a separate "suppression file" which is turned over to the FBI, the IRS, Homeland Security, local law enforcement and ultra-right patriot groups who have a right to know who the pinkos in their community are. That file will be matched with the full database regularly to ensure that those who do not wish to be contacted are not left alive, according to the Pentagon.
But privacy advocates said using database marketers for military recruitment is inappropriate.
"Them Privacy Groups Should Decide Exactly Who The Fuck They Think We Are."---Gen. Lane Forkum
As if they aren't namby pamby enough already, they begin, "We support the U.S. armed forces, and understand that DoD faces serious challenges in recruiting for the military," a coalition of privacy groups whimpered to the Pentagon after notice of the program was published in the Federal Register a month ago. "But . . . the collection of this information is not consistent with the Privacy Act, which was passed by Congress to reduce the government's collection of personal information on Americans."
Chris Jay Hoofnagle, West Coast director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, called the system "an audacious plan to target-market kids, as young as 16, for military solicitation. It's a pediphelia of violence."
He added that collecting Social Security numbers was not only unnecessary but posed a needless risk of identity fraud. Trading of Social Security numbers and other personal information from data brokers, government agencies, financial institutions and other companies that profit from defrauding people is rampant.
"What's ironic is that the private sector has ways of uniquely identifying individuals without using Social Security numbers for marketing like DNA and medical records," he said.
"Being 'Acutely Aware' Doesn't Mean We're Gonna Do Shit About It.
The Pentagon statements said the military is "acutely aware of the substantial security required to protect personal data, but is willing to wait until Nightline does a Special Report on the lack of security maybe 30 from now when half these kids are already dead." and that Social Security numbers will be used only to "provide a higher degree of accuracy in matching duplicate data records."
The Pentagon said it routinely monitors its vendors to ensure compliance with its bribery standards. "We're gonna end up running that company for those geeks someday," said Col. Fred Flushman. "I want to be sure I'm well compensated 'cause you know, if we had the rule of law in America, all this would be a shitload of felonies."
Even though she helped structure the contract. Krenke said she did not know how much the contract with BeNow/New Sparta was worth, "maybe 8 bill, maybe more" or even whether it was bid competitively. "With all due respect, it sounds like you're a lying tower of shit Ms. Krenke," this reporter asked.
According to the Federal Register notice, the data will be open to "those who require the records in the performance of their official duties and who come up with the cash." The system also gives the Pentagon the right, without notifying citizens, to share the data for numerous uses outside the military, including with law enforcement, state tax authorities and Congress.
Some see the program as part of a growing encroachment of government into private lives, particularly since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
"It's just typical of how voracious government is when it comes to personal information," said James W. Harper, a privacy expert with the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank. "Defense is an area where government has a legitimate responsibility . . . but there are a lot of data fields they don't need and shouldn't be keeping. Ethnicity strikes me as particularly inappropriate."
Yesterday, the New York Times reported that the Social Security Administration relaxed its privacy policies and provided data on citizens to the FBI in connection with terrorism investigations.
