Do you feel like the government is taking advantage of vulnerable groups and stealing their property? If so, then you won’t want to miss this episode of The Brian Nichols Show! Brian Nichols and Jim Burling, Vice President of Legal Affairs for the Pacific Legal Foundation, will discuss how to fight government interference and protect property owners.

In this episode, you’ll hear about Geraldine Tyler, a 94-year-old woman who had her property taken away by the government due to unpaid taxes. She was left out $25,000, and the government doesn’t even have to return the property in 14 states! Burling will argue at the Supreme Court that this is a violation of the eighth amendment’s excessive fines clause and the fifth and fourteenth amendment’s takings clause. Will the Supreme Court recognize the injustices faced by vulnerable groups and put a stop to it?

But that’s not all. Nichols and Burling will also discuss the Supreme Court case Wilkins v. United States. This case draws attention to the issue of equity, as those who can least afford it are the ones being targeted. Wilkins is a property owner from Montana who owns land along a dirt road in a rural national forest area. The Forest Service had asked the prior owner of the property for permission to access the road for timber harvesting, and the owner agreed, granting an easement for the Forest Service to use. What will the Supreme Court decide in this case?

If you’re interested in protecting property rights and fighting against government interference, then this episode is a must-listen. Nichols and Burling explore how we can fight back against injustices faced by vulnerable groups, and you won’t want to miss it! So grab your headphones and get ready for a thought-provoking and engaging discussion on The Brian Nichols Show!
