Light the way


Hat tip to the Daily Inspiration from last Friday, which I received at work in an email.

"There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

~ Edith Wharton

Domestically, Soetoro/Obama is even worse than Carter, says Mark Levin

Hat tip to, they posted an article highlighting some of the thoughts of conservative radio talk show host, best-selling author and attorney, Mark Levin. Here is part of his comments as quoted in the NewsBusters article, “Mark Levin: Obama 'Biggest Disaster in Modern American History'”:

"This is a very vicious recession and we would have been out of by now if he wasn't smothering the private sector, threatening to tax them, nationalizing major industries, government doesn't spread wealth, it destroys wealth and it spreads misery. Now we've had trillions of dollars spent in the last 13-14 months...trillions...following this failed ideology. We still have
· almost 10 percent unemployment,
· still foreclosures,
· soon the fed is going to back off pumping money into the housing market,
· interest rates are going to go up . . .

"This philosophy that Obama embraces has failed whenever it's tried, wherever it's tried. And you notice they always try to say the same thing - ‘we haven't gone far enough,' ‘we need more money,' ‘we need more government,' and then they pick enemies - this industry, that industry - it's because they're failures. And this is how they continue to push their propaganda. We weren't sliding into a great Depression, so now he's rewriting history."

I concur with Mark Levin's analysis. Socialism or Marxism has not anywhere, yet, the Soetoro aka Obama administation is hell-bent on implementing that horrid and sordid philosophy. More than 60% of the American people do not want government-run healthcare, yet the President, Pelosi, and Reid march ahead following the steps of Lenin, Stalin and Mao like good comrades in harm . . .
The President claims that had he and Congress not pursued the gigantic slush fund, also referred to as the stimulus package, the economy would have been worse. I disagree. All the stimulus bull did was prolong the deep cuts states must face and must make to curb loss of revenue and out-of-control spending. The Stimulus protected government union jobs, that's all. We would have been less in debt than we are today if we did not waste nearly a Trillion dollars on an entirely program meant to insure that the Democratic Party stays in power . . .
The President and Congress are even thinking of passing another Stimulus bill. What was that famous definition of insanity? . . . Doing the same failed thing over and over again expecting different results.

Biden Time

Jeff Dunham is a funny comedian. I watched one of his videos, which I received from a coworker. One of his characters is Walter, a crotchety and sarcastic old man. Hat tip to for the photo below and his article, "Uncanny Resemblance: Joe Biden & Walter," which was posted 07.07.09. Incidentally, Dunham and Walter (Biden?) will be performing in Columbus, Ohio this weekend.

“Vice President Joseph Biden says that Washington is broken.
“Exhibit A: Joe Biden!”

Stop the Patriot Act

If you have any doubts that the Patriot Act is unconstitutional, this video will clear up those doubts! The Patriots Act makes it illegal to tell the TRUTH! This is on the same order as the Sedition Acts of Adams, Lincoln, Wilson, and FDR and the McCarthy era. The First Amendment is gone folks!

Contact your congressmen and tell them to not to vote for the renewal of the Patriot Act! There is nothing patriotic about it!

Ron Paul Implicates the Federal Reserve in Watergate Payoffs and Supplying Saddam Hussein with WMD

The above video shows Congressman Ron Paul questioning Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke about possible funding of Sadaam Hussein’s weapons program and Watergate payoffs by the Federal Reserve during the Nixon and Reagan (or G.H.W. Bush?) administrations. Mr. Bernanke responded by saying that Mr. Paul’s allegations were “bizarre”. But these allegations are not new.

Here is a New York Times article from 2004 about the Fed funneling money to Saddam:

Form the History network:

Ben Bernanke Gives Ron Paul the "Idiot Treatment" (Watergate Payoffs)
After Ron Paul raised questions about possible past Federal Reserve misdeeds including allegations of involvement in Watergate payoffs, Ben Bernanke answered smugly: "These specific allegations you've made, I think are absolutely bizarre."

The crowd reflexively laughed at Dr. No's perceived looniness and pundits have already depicted his concerns as "wild" and "odd."

Well, it seems that Paul may have been onto something...or at the very least raised legitimate questions that deserve investigation. A few minutes on google news produced this 1982 story from the Milwaukee Sentinel by Richard Bradee of the paper's Washington Bureau:

"Police who searched the room the Watergate burglars used found $4,200 in $100 dollar bills, all numbered in sequence. Proxmire asked the Federal Reserve Board where the money came from. As he explained in a letter to the late Rep. Wright Patman (D-Tex.), chairman of the House Banking Committee: "I got the biggest run-around in years. They ducked, misled, lied, and gave me the idiot treatment."

More “bizarre” allegations from July 2009:

Articles of Freedom, part 8

This is a series of posts concerning the works of the 2009 Continental Congress. Two weeks ago I wrote about Article 6 of the Articles of Freedom, which was about property rights. Now I will continue with Article 7, the text of which follows.

Many of the issues raised in this article are interesting, and don’t necessarily disagree with them, but I must admit that I am have not educated myself enough on these issues to make a definite endorsement of all of them. Concerning the right to a common law jury, I would say that this is a very difficult issue for me. I don’t exactly see a right to a “common law” jury in the seventh amendment. It reads:

In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

First of all, I question whether or not the phase “In Suits at common law” (or even the twenty dollar clause) extends to the entire sentence or if “no fact…” was meant to stand by itself. If the former, then the whole thing only applies to Suits which already common law suits, and not other suits whether they are civil or criminal.

Of course, any criminal case the right to a trial by jury is guaranteed by the sixth amendment. (Why didn’t they use it since it’s so much more obvious?) Furthermore, due process rights are guaranteed by the fifth amendment in cases where one’s life, liberty, or property is at stake, (but this does not necessarily mean that there has to be a jury). But I am not knowledgeable enough to understand what the difference is between common law juries and ordinary petit juries which are in common use today, or if this is even something that the authors were intentionally trying convey.

The idea of “empower[ing] [grand juries] to authorize any citizen of their choice to prosecute a case” is interesting and I don’t see anything wrong with it, but I’m not sure it’s constitutionally necessary.

The rest of the ideas are very good and very necessary, especially nullification and the idea of requiring that the jury be informed of their right to nullify the law.




The Delegates representing forty-eight of the several States in Continental Congress assembled, being fully apprised in the premises, find that:

1. The American People are the American Sovereign;

2. As sovereign, the American People have the last say on the law;

3. American Citizens are called to sit on both Grand and Petit Juries;

4. In their capacity as jurors, the American people have the power, and the duty, to judge both the law and the facts;


1. Amend the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to require judges to apprise all plaintiffs and defendants of their right under the 7th Amendment to a common law jury; and

2. Amend the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure to require judges to apprise all defendants of their right under the 7th Amendment to a common law jury; and

3. Amend the Federal Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure to require all judges, in cases where the United States is a party to the case, to apprise all jurors of the judge’s conflict of interest; and

4. Amend the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure to provide for trials authorized only by indictments or presentments by independent, randomly empanelled citizens’ common law grand juries, accessible to any individual having a complaint, and empowered to authorize any citizen of their choice to prosecute a case.


1. Amend the rules governing civil and criminal cases to require judges to apprise plaintiffs and defendants of their right under the 7th Amendment to a common law jury;

2. Amend the rules governing civil and criminal cases to require all judges, in cases where the State is a party to the case, to apprise all jurors of the judge’s conflict of interest.


1. When appointed to a jury, throw off the restraints of judicial tyranny by refusing to capitulate to any judicial instruction to judge only the facts; and

2. When appointed to a jury, demand to have all issues of law argued in the presence of the jury, and have the last say by judging the law;

3. Educate your family, friends, and community to learn about the Fully Informed Jury Association (“FIJA”), and the power of judging the law as well as the accused.

Debra Medina for Texas Governor

part 2

CBS interview:

part 1, part 2, part 3

Debra is “pro-life period”, does not compromise on our gun rights, and is for eliminating property tax, securing our border, and restoring our sovereignty. She is in favor of returning education to local control and free market healthcare only.

Rick Perry stands by his decision to make an executive order (bypassing the legal legislative process and legislating from the executive) to make HPV vaccinations mandatory for young girls. And he is “unaware” of the Advanced Directives Act (legalized Death Panels) and thus has done nothing to rescind it. He has done nothing to stop the thousands of illegal immigrants which daily come into America. Texans need to boot out the NAFTA Superhighway building and Bilderberg “Slick” Rick Perry. Don't believe his lies.

Medina’s other RINO opponent, Senator Kay “Bailout” Hutchinson, believes that abortion should be legal up to 22 weeks after conception and in cases of rape and incest. She voted for reauthorizing the wasteful AMTRAK buyout. She supported George W. Bush’s big government Prescription Drug Bill and other costly and intrusive federal healthcare initiatives. She supports providing extra federal aid to states with higher numbers of immigrants for “necessary” medical and social services. She supports the unconstitutional national sovereignty killing trade agreements and trade organizations such as NAFTA, GATT, WTO, and the unconstitutional “fast-track” legislation. She also supports wasteful welfare programs.

More Evidence of Big Government Responsibility for High Healthcare Costs

If you are not yet convinced that less government is the right way to solve the healthcare crisis, watch the above video. ObamaCare is not "Medicare for everyone" (not that that wouldn't be entirely too wasteful and enslaving), but it is a onerous mandate to the consumer and a payoff to the insurance companies and pharmaceutical industry for the campaign contributions that they gave to Obama and the Democrats. The Republicans are only opposing this to appeal to the electorate. When they were in power, the drug companies got their big payoff from the Prescription Drug Bill and Medicare Advantage. We need new leadership in both Washington and the states and a more well-informed and vigilant electorate.

Tiger apologizes, now will our President follow suit?

Woods & President in 'happier' times

I missed posting an article on Saturday, this is the article which I have been working on since I heard Tiger Woods' 15 minute world-wide apology last Friday. It ties in well with what Sam wrote and posted yesterday, "How I know Barack Hussein Obama is not a Christian, Part 9."
You can see many similarities between the two famous men pictured above. In their particular fields, both have reached to epitome of their chose professions. There are also differences between these two. I conclude the article naming what both men and all humans need above all else to complete and enrich and fulfill their lives.

There are several parallels between Tiger Woods and President Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama. Both had black fathers and non-black mothers. Ann Coulter once sarcastically referred to the President as being a 'halfrican'.

Both were raised as non-Christians, one a Buddhist and one an Atheist/Muslim.

Both have committed gross immoral acts. One’s immorality was serial adultery, the other’s is habitual lying and stealing - generational theft, that is - continuing to spend money that the nation he rules, America, does not have – thereby obligating generations to come to unprecedented amounts of debt.

Both have risen to the top of their profession. One achieved the Presidency by hook and by crook, the other achieved success in the golf world by hard work. Both have disappointed their supporters through their behavior, once having attained the top of their fields.

Both are arrogant egotistical men, who do not feel the law and ethical standards apply to them. They act or acted as if they were above the law.


Although both had a need to apologize for their behavior, only one did so. Tiger Woods seemed to be sincere in his apology and seems to have taken action to correct his behavior. Although, Buddhism is not the solution he claims it to be. The President, on the other had, is unrepentant and is obstinately denying any wrong-doing and is apparently pressing forward on his Marxist agenda in spite of public opposition and no matter what it costs him or America.

The president suffers from E.D., which stands for Excessive Dishonesty. He is a serial liar. For example, he continues to claim and to act, despite the recent revelations, as if global warming is real. He knows it is untrue. It is merely a ploy to redistribute wealth and to bring on more socialism, which is a part of his agenda. He said he would close Gitmo by the end of his first year in office. He said the stimulus would save jobs, it has done the reverse. Job loss continues at 10%. He said he would not raise taxes. His immoral spending and debt-making necessitates finding ways stealing from the American taxpayer. He said he would end earmarks, but instead they have increased with his signature.


Both men are in desperate need a Savior, and are destined for hell, eternal estrangement or separation from God, if they continue their current evil ways. We are all sinners, the great and the not-so-great, the king and the pauper, the golf pro and the duffer.

Jesus Christ offers true hope and change, redemption, and restoration. He is the ONLY way to God. In John 10:10 Jesus speaks, saying, "I am the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE, no man comes to the Father, except through ME." Pretty clear and pretty exclusive yes, but no truer statement was ever spoken. So listen up guys. You want restoration, you want acceptance, you want fulfillment, you want purpose, you want an distinctive legacy? Then pursue and honor God of the Judeo-Christian Bible.

How I Know Barack Hussein Obama is not a Christian, Part 9

This is the ninth in a series of articles offering evidence that our President is not a Christian, despite what he or anyone else might claim.

The President, Barack Hussein Obama has said, “I want to reconcile the differences between Christianity and Islam.”

The last time I looked the Koran said that Allah did not have a son and that Jesus is not divine. Although, Allah did come down to earth with some angels in the form of a man and told Mary she was going to have a man child. She told him to stay away from her. Allah needs only to speak and it happens so he commanded that she become pregnant and she did. I ask you, if someone makes a woman pregnant, then doesn’t that make him the father of that child? Yet Allah in the Koran denies fatherhood. Further, the Koran claims that Jesus did not die on a cross, but a look-alike died instead. Allah then caught him up into heaven without dying.

The word of God, the Holy Bible, on the other hand, states that God is the Father of Jesus, Who is His only begotten Son. This fact makes Jesus divine. Jesus received worship and exercised authority over all of nature and creation. Jesus was born sinless and lived a sinless life. On the cross He took the sins of the whole world in his own body, becoming sin, and received the wrath of God against those sins. He died when finished at the time of His own choosing. Three days later He arose from the dead. He was seen by his disciples and ascended into heaven. Those who are Christians and know something about Christianity and God’s word know that this is what the scripture teaches.

Since Jesus received in Himself the sins of all mankind and tasted death for each person, this is one reason mankind has hope of salvation. Another reason is that He is divine, and therefore infinite. Therefore those who believe in Him have their sins washed away by His blood and become the righteousness of God in Christ.

Christianity and Islam cannot be reconciled without changing the teaching of either Islam or Christianity or both. If Islam is changed then it ceases to be Islam or if Christianity is changed it ceases to be Christianity. Changing the teachings of Christianity will cause people to be lost and to go to hell while they think they are going to heaven. The Apostle Paul wrote that if anyone preaches anything different than what was preached, then let that person be anathema (cursed). What Obama is proposing is anathema. A Christian would not even think of changing anything in regard the truths of the Christian faith!

Christians are concerned about converting Muslims to faith in Jesus Christ for salvation so they will go to heaven. The Koran teaches Muslims to kill Christians and Jews so the Muslims doing the killing will go to heaven and the Christians and Jews will go to hell.

President Obama shows no knowledge or understanding of God or His word (The Holy Bible). Therefore, he is not concerned about the salvation of anyone’s life. This is contrary to God’s word, which commands Christian believers to go into the entire world preaching the gospel and making disciples.

If you want to do God’s will by acting according to God’s word, and are not born again, you must begin by repenting of your sins and inviting Jesus into your heart. This brings salvation from the consequences of your sins (Luke 24:46-48). When Jesus comes into your heart, you are saved, forgiven, made a new creature by the Holy Spirit, given eternal life and that makes you a Christian (Revelation 3:20; II Corinthians 5:17; I John 5:10-12; Romans 8:9).

A sample prayer is, “Lord Jesus Christ come into my heart and forgive me of my sins.” The alternative remains, which is to perish apart from God for eternity, and includes being tormented endlessly by fire.

Dr. Robert Lowry for Congress

Dr. Robert Lowry is endorsed by Liberty PAC. He is running for Congress in Texas’ 23th district.

Lowry describes his reasoning for being pro-life by saying:

If we are, as a nation, willing to accept the idea that special “exceptions” are OK in law, then there is no legal or logical basis to stop making more exceptions.

He compares the right to life of the fetus with the civil rights of blacks and women and believes that it is an “area of Federal concern”.

He is 100% pro-second amendment. The government licensing and restriction of weapons and persons who would elect to carry weapons is Unconstitutional,” he says.

As for foreign policy, Lowry is a Jeffersonian. He quotes him thusly:

Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none

Finally, Dr. Lowry supports free market and local solutions to the issues of energy, education and healthcare.

Has the "Christian Right" Made a Pact With the Devil?

Alan Grayson points out the hypocrisy of the Republican Party. Not that I think anything good about Grayson (he is typical liberal, the only thing good about him is that he supports more transparency in government), but he has a point. The GOP did nothing for the unborn or stop incentives, benefits, and privileges in the law to commit the abominable act of homosexuality.

Whether or not the earthquake had anything to do with some sin that Haitians committed, I don't know, but Robertson is really good at telling when a disaster is the result of sin (NOT!!!). Robertson is the charlatan and he is one of the causes of lack of action on moral issues, since he endorsed Rudi Giuliani.

Articles of Freedom, part 7

This is a series of posts concerning the works of the 2009 Continental Congress. Two weeks ago I wrote about Article 5 of the Articles of Freedom, which was about the last privacy and the Fourth Amendment. Now I will continue with Article 6, the text of which follows. I completely agree with it.




“Either you have the right to own property or you are property.” Wayne Hage, rancher


The Founding Documents of the United States clearly acknowledge that the powers of the government are derived only from the consent of the governed. Under the American system, individuals decide and direct the terms of their lives; that each person is independent; that justice must be dispensed equally; and that each person has a natural right to his or her Life, Liberty and Property.

The United States is the only nation on earth specifically based on the premise of the right of individuals to own and control private property. It is the essential ingredient for Freedom and in the ability to build personal wealth. Private property ownership is the main factor in creating our national prosperity and it is the root of our individual Freedom.

Ownership of private property is essential to guaranteeing individual Liberty. Without private property, no other rights are possible. There can be no freedom of speech, no freedom of mobility, or no ability to be secure in our persons without the ability to own and control private property.

For half a century, unrestrained local and state governments have taken private property not for "public uses"—such as for bridges or public buildings—as permitted by the Constitution, but for private businesses in the name of "economic development." Through the arbitrary use of Eminent Domain, perpetrated by partnerships between government and private developers (Public/Private Partnerships), in the name of an undefined "Common good" for the community, private homes and businesses are being bulldozed, replaced by newer businesses and homes owned, not by the public, but by private, politically-connected individuals and corporations.

Internationally, there are outside forces threatening to establish an absolute tyranny over private ownership of land through a declaration that all property is part of a “Global Commons” which it declares cannot be owned or controlled by an individual. To that end, a hoard of private organizations, armed with international treaties, soft law policies, and arbitrary directives have fanned out across the nation transforming the American system of government, assuring private land is locked away or controlled to the point of rendering it worthless to the owners.

These actions subvert the principles of the Declaration of Independence and destroy the governing authority of the United States Constitution. Together, we can reverse this trend toward collectivism and uphold the Principles of Property enshrined in the Constitution, which should forever reign supreme.


1. Our Constitution for the United States is “the Supreme Law of the Land” and has supremacy over decisions of legislature
(Art. 6, Clause 1-3)

There can be no rule making or legislation which will abrogate the Rights secured by our Constitution. Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 491 (1966)

"No right granted or secured by the Constitution of the United States can be impaired or destroyed by a state enactment, whatever may be the source from which the power to pass such enactment may have been derived…The nullity of any act inconsistent with the Constitution is produced by the declaration that the Constitution is the supreme law.” Connolly vs. Union Sewer Pipe Company, 184 U.S. 540, 558 (1902)

2. Our People of the United States are guaranteed the unalienable Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

“The three great rights are bound together as to be essentially one right. To give a man his life, but deny him his liberty, is to take from him all that makes his life worth living. To give him his liberty, but take from him the property which is the fruit and badge of his liberty, is to still leave him a slave.” George Sutherland, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, 1921.

3. The Rights of the People to their Property shall not be violated without probable cause, without due process, and without just compensation.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the person or things to be seized.” Constitution, 4th Amendment.

“No person…shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” Constitution, 5th Amendment.

4. “The enumeration in the Constitution of certain Rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the People.” Constitution, 9th Amendment.

5. “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.” Constitution, 10th Amendment.


The Creator has supplied the earth with an abundance of energy sources. Abundant energy is the foundation for all technological advancement. A high and improved quality of life is totally dependent on an abundance of energy. The Constitution does not grant the federal government the power to regulate, control, or establish a national policy for the generation and distribution of energy. Within the United States, there is a nearly unlimited supply of coal, oil, natural gas, and hydroelectric energy sources. Carbon dioxide generated from these sources is not an environmental pollutant, but is, in fact, an essential and vital element of life, enhancing life rather than negatively impacting it.

The extraction, transportation and processing of energy resources – our property – is fully our Constitutional right. So too is the production of nuclear energy. Some convincingly argue that nuclear energy is the safest, cleanest, and least expensive source of energy and that nuclear waste can be disposed of at the reactor site.



The United States has assumed control of lands within several of the western states far beyond the authority granted to it by the Constitution for the United States. (See map). When the federal government assumes control, it does so by calling these seized lands such names as: “The Wildlands Project”, “Heritage” areas, “Land Management”, “Wolf and Bear Reintroduction”, and “Rails to Trails”, “Conservation Easements”, “Open Space”, and many more. Each of these programs is designed to make it more difficult and expensive to live on the land.

The federal government has established and expanded parks, preserves, recreation and wilderness areas with no regard for the economic impact, loss of livelihood, and custom and culture of residents of the areas. These types of projects are established often without the direct consent of the legislature of the state, or the people of the community, and without concern for the impact on the communities.

For example, the economy of the small communities of the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area is being heavily impacted. The residents of many similarly situated communities are suffering greatly when the federal government takes several million acres of land for use in these “wilderness” projects. In these projects, among other things, the watershed areas will no longer be under the guidance and care of the citizens of those communities.


We the People, find that the three branches of our government have violated the above provisions of the Constitution and therefore provide the following instructions:

1. Reintroduce and pass the "Property Rights Protection Act (S1313). This legislation, passed in the House of Representatives in 2005, was introduced to overturn the Supreme Court's Kelo decision. The legislation specifically called for cutting off federal funds to any community that uses Eminent Domain for community development of private property. It was blocked in committee in the Senate. Passing this legislation is vital to correcting the destruction to American property rights caused by the Kelo Decision.

2. Repeal all legislation related to terms such as, “sustainable development”, “social justice”, “global community”, or otherwise focused on land use, education, or population control/reduction;

3. Strengthen the Fifth Amendment by law (not a Constitutional Amendment) by requiring government at all levels to pay just compensation for regulatory takings;

4. Repeal and provide no funds to any agency working toward a “North American Union”, regional, or global governance of any kind;

5. Repeal all laws restricting the People’s Right to private property – its acquisition, its use, and its disposal;

6. Defund and repeal all Environmental Protection Agency legislation related to the United Nations movement to collectivize all property;

7. Reject or repeal all legislation related to public/private partnerships that relate to controlling population or setting new public policy aimed at making communal the property of the People;

8. Independently evaluate any determinations by the United Nations or any non-governmental international organizations that are supportive of their promotion of top down governance of society;

9. Reject or repeal any laws/legislation that does not conform to the requirements of the 10th Amendment;

10. Refuse to enter into the Copenhagen Treaty;

11. Refuse to provide any funds to Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs);

12. Discontinue any association or funding of any activities related to the Security and Prosperity Partnership (North American Leaders Summit);

13. Repeal all laws that take property from sovereign individuals merely “accused” or “suspected” of a crime;

14. Rewrite environmental laws to protect private property rights limited only by historic harm and nuisance provisions of common law, and mandate that federal lands meet their own standards;

15. Repeal all laws/regulations and funding related to National Heritage Areas;

16. Prevent Eminent Domain from being exercised to convert private property from one owner to another private owner for public advantage; Eminent domain is only to be used to convert private property to public use” for at least 20 years;

17. Repeal all laws granting the Army Corps of Engineers control over land or water rights of private property owners;
