Now what liberty can there be where
property is taken away without consent?"

- Samuel Adams

"We support property rights and pipelines - both.
Presently, CFACT is fighting against the “Dominion Pipeline” in Virginia (with local
property owners and against the company) because of the way the utility is using
eminent domain to trample on private property rights. Just because we support
the concept of a pipeline doesn’t mean we necessarily think the way
it is put in should strong-arm local property owners!

Here’s a website we helped build for a group of property owners
in rural Virginia fighting AGAINST a pipeline - though we
support the concept of a pipeline and certainly fracking."

Notable & Quotable:
Climate Change and War

Robert H. Scales, a retired Army major general: ‘Our men and women in uniform are smart and perceptive. They can spot phoniness in a heartbeat.’

RICO for government climate deniers?

How corrupt and fraudulent is the government “science” that denies natural climate change?

Paul Driessen Ron Arnold


A self-appointed coalition of Democrat state attorneys general is pursuing civil or criminal racketeering actions against ExxonMobil, the Competitive Enterprise Institute and other organizations. The AGs claim the groups are committing fraud, by “denying” climate change. The charge is bogus.

What we contest are false assertions that “humans are creating a dangerous climate change crisis.” We do not accept false claims that “the science is settled” and will not be limited to discussing only “what we must do now to avert looming climate catastrophes.”

Hage Set to Appeal Ninth Circuit Ruling in Forage Right Case to U.S. Supreme Court; Western Water Law Hangs in the Balance

In January, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Susan P. Graber, Kim McLane Wardlaw, and Mary H. Murguia, Circuit Judges, in an opinion by Judge Graber, handed down a decision reversing all of the findings of Nevada Federal District Court Chief Judge Robert C. Jones in his 103-page decision in U.S. v. Hage (2007). Judge Jones had found among other things that government officials had “entered into a literal, intentional conspiracy to deprive the Hages not only of their (grazing) permits but also of their vested water rights.” The Court added, “This behavior shocks the conscience of the Court and provides a sufficient basis for a finding of irreparable harm…” Click here to continue.
