Elaine Willman and the Invasion of the Tribal Justice Warriors

Recently, CAPR’s Skagit chapter invited Elaine Willman, nationally renowned author and public speaker, to hold a workshop on water and property rights, specifically in the context of conflicts with tribal governments.  Ms Willman, who has written two popular books on that subject, is an expert on federal government and tribal decisions and how they impact land use inside and outside Indian reservations.  She also is vocal about threats to constitutional rights for both tribal members and other American citizens.

Stealing Our Water One Lawsuit at a Time - The Hirst Heist and Our Diminishing Legislature

By Glen Morgan and Cindy Alia

On October 6, 2016,  Futurewise, with the assistance of six Washington State Supreme Court Justices, managed to win the lawsuit lottery.  The Supreme Court ruled in Hirst v. W. Washington Growth Management Hearings Board (decision linked here) on a 6-3 vote in favor of Futurewise and against the people.  This ruling invented new land use rules approved by no legislature or elected official.  This litigious and aggressive environmental NGO funded by wealthy Seattle donors was able to end the historic private well exemption.  

Will SB 5239 Be Enough of a Fix to the Hirst Decision?

5239 is most likely going to be heard in the house before the March 29 deadline to hear bills in the opposite house.  Those who understand the devastating loss of property and water rights, loss of the use of their land, and extreme devaluation, often up to 90% of their value, for thousands of families of many counties are working to improve this bill.  Those who do not understand this kind of loss are likewise involved.  The Hirst decision has also impacted counties and the state in terms of loss of productivity and commerce in their communities along with a drop in tax revenue.

Consider the work and success of CAPR as you give this year! You can help!

As CAPR enters our 14th year, we are reflecting on our many recent successes in our efforts to identify, educate, train, and mobilize property rights advocates, and to restore and defend property rights. Our ongoing efforts and successes in 2016 encourage us to keep working for the rights of all! Please help CAPR in this fight for freedom!

Tales of Tyranny: The Arthur Thomas Story

This is the first of a series of videos, Tales of Tyranny, produced by Citizens' Alliance for Property Rights (CAPR) in Washington State.  These short video stories about people who have been harmed by abusive government regulation, zealous prosecution of  ridiculous rules, criminalization of minor code infractions, and the destruction of property rights.  Ordinary citizens have been harmed by government as policy. 

 

Seeking Justice by Electing Justices Who Respect the Constitution and the Rule of Law

Many persons seek the protection of their property rights and relief from over-reaching or misapplied regulatory actions and want to have that relief from our Judicial system.  But what if the highest court in our State has strayed from the rule of law and constitutional decision making and into the arena of problem solving with decisions best left to another branch of government, the legislature?
