The Lost Liberty Hotel project

—A rebellion that WAS televised

The Lost Liberty Hotel project was a rebellion against eminent domain abuse that involved applying the new Supreme Court ruling to those who voted in favor of it. It resulted in an explosion of media coverage. Freestar Media, LLC now makes itself available to clients who wish to hire it to generate publicity for pro-freedom projects. We will consider a pay-for-results contract.

Logan is also available as a keynote speaker for your next event. Logan can give a presentation on the health care cost crisis (with movie clips), eminent domain abuse (with movie clips) and the moral case for free market capitalism.

Background

On Monday June 27, 2005 Logan Darrow Clements, President of Freestar Media, LLC informed the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire that he wanted to begin the permit process to build a hotel on the land owned by U.S. Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter. Mr. Souter was one of five justices who voted in the "Kelo vs. City of New London" decision to allow city governments to take land from one private owner and give it to another if the government believes it will generate greater tax revenue or other economic benefits when the land is developed by the new owner.

This is where we planned to build the Lost Liberty Hotel:

June 23, 2005: The U.S. Supreme Court's Kelo vs. City of New London decision

June 27, 2005: Freestar's fax to the City of Weare, New Hampshire

June 27, 2005: Freestar's press release

(yes "Deserts" is spelled correctly)
