Is there an agenda?

Yes, Agenda 21 to be precise.

In an earlier post a couple of months ago (and even before that) , we brought up ICLEI and Agenda 21.  This stuff is not going away and it behooves us all to pay a lot closer attention to it.  Think that zoning debates, fracking debates, sustainability initiatives and so on have nothing to do with you and how you live your life?  Think again.

From the SF Bay 912 group (yes, there actually are active and growing tea party groups on the left coast):

The US Constitution guarantees the right to private property and restricts the government from taking that property without just compensation under the laws of eminent domain. Yet that right is being eroded every day by local and regional governments under the guise of such nice sounding words as “sustainable development”, “smart growth”, “new urbanization”. Other code words for this effort include: “comprehensive planning”, “bike lanes-hiking trails”, “open space preserves”, “wetlands, wildlands, biodiversity”, “public/private partnerships”, “high speed rail-light rail, etc”.

This should sound real familiar and not in a good way.

The Agenda 21 plan openly targets private property.  At risk from Agenda 21:

  • Private property ownership
  • Single-family homes
  • Private car ownership and individual travel choices
  • Privately owned farms

However, people. are fighting back just as we could do here in Tompkins County:

In recent months, citizen groups across the country have organized and become involved in the removal of towns and cities from membership in ICLEI. The Roanoke, VA Tea Party is holding a rally this week in an effort to have ICLEI removed from their local government.

This video (90 minutes long) from just a few days ago is notable because the featured speaker at the Bay Area Tea Party meeting, Rosa Koire, is a liberal Democrat who understands that Agenda 21 will destroy America as we know it:

If you need something short and sweet right now (and suitable for helping you craft your elevator speech re: Agenda 21 and "sustainability"), see the American Policy Center's Agenda 21 in One Easy Lesson.

Homework assignment: Go the ICLEI page that lists all the member governmental entities (here) and check out the USA participants.

You can worry about being thought of as wearing a stylish tinfoil chapeau and ultimately end up like this guy:

or you can educate yourself and others.  You do have a choice—for now.
