Eminent Domain in the Arsenal
Citizens of Eureka, wake up and pay attention! The government is now threatening to use eminent domain to take away property from those who refuse to give up their land if the homeless population increases. This kind of government overreach is a hallmark of Communist regimes, and it’s something we must fight against.
G Mario Fernandez has stated that eminent domain will be in their ‘arsenal’ against those who don’t comply, but this should not be allowed. We must stand up for our rights and ensure that the government isn’t able to take away our property without due process or compensation.
This was revealed in video footage of an interview with G Mario Fernandez on the Growing Pains Podcast with Nicholas Flores. This interview is lengthy and touches on many important topics, watch the full interview here.

“Eminent domain yeah, that’s not the route I want to go unless it’s really like the last piece of arsenal that we have.”
Investigative Citizen Journalist Sounds Alarm
Concerned Community Member / Investigative Citizen Journalist, -Roy Gomez-, sent the LCP news team the clip above from the Growing Pains interview. Additionally a warning for the community at large was provided which can be read below. Roy had previously addressed the Eureka City Council over concerns of ethics violations and conflicts of interest involving multiple council members.
“Keep vigilant Eureka and ALL OF HUMBOLDT COUNTY!!!! The Danco project and their intention to spread misinformation on potential ‘affordable housing’ projects into several areas of our community is their deceptive playbook in Eureka. Be aware that they will use eminent domain with the help of grant money from the State.
They call it ‘affordable housing’ but don’t admit that protocols can and will change to allow homeless drug addicts and mentally ill people to occupy these buildings without the adequate services to rehabilitate them. DO NOT let the Ink People and their affiliates infiltrate other areas as they have done in Eureka! Listen and watch what Leslie Castellano’s fellow anarchist (Council Member Mario Fernandez) said about the good people and property owners of Eureka whom he characterized as ‘not in our backyarders.’
He says that eminent domain will be in their ‘arsenal’ against those who will refuse to give up their property if the homeless population increases. People need to realize that this is their playbook. We need to purge these illegal operations where they start … INK PEOPLE and Anarchist.
WAKE UP HUMBOLDT!!!!!”
California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced more than $4.3 million in Project Homekey funds Monday that will help make it possible for the Humboldt Inn on Fourth Street in Eureka to become permanent supportive housing for people experiencing homelessness.
The Humboldt County Department of Health & Human Services and Providence Supportive Housing jointly applied for the multimillion-dollar award in August to supplement the $3.5 million Providence is contributing and the nearly $300,000 from the county. The money will be used to transition the motel’s 44 rooms into 48 individual units with small kitchens.
“The foundational concept of Project Homekey is allowing the state to purchase unused commercial living spaces like old hotels and turn them into housing for homeless people. Governor Gavin Newsom has stood behind Project Homekey since its inception and believes it is a crucial step in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the state’s homeless populations.
Project Homekey is reportedly running out of money already. Not only is Newsom looking to get increased buying power approval for the initiative, but eminent domain has also been put on the table as an option to consider.”
California in Crisis
California is facing a crisis of mismanagement and unfairness that has resulted in the state running out of funds to help the homeless. This alarming situation has brought to light the need for better management of resources and more equitable distribution of funds. Unfortunately, some have suggested using eminent domain as a solution, which could lead to further totalitarian practices in an already fragile situation.
Humboldt County and more specifically the city of Eureka need to break away from these destructive state Policies. Trying to plan ahead When The state has no viable plan Is not feasible or logical. New local leadership might be in the communities best interest if current elected officials cannot break away from the states destructive pattern of actions.
