Agenda 21 and Your Use of Water…

By Sue Forde,
for Citizen Review

Posted 7/6/2013

Recently, I checked the UN Agenda 21 (ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability) website, to see the list of cities and counties that are still members of ICLEI.  Lo and behold, the website has REMOVED the list.  With the most recent withdrawal from ICLEI by Boston, Massachusetts bringing the number of cities and/or counties now to 138, it would appear that the ICLEI folks may be getting a little nervous that their scheme is being found out by too many people.  (You can see the listing of cities and counties as preserved by another website, here.)

Checking Rosa Koire’s website (author of “Behind the Green Mask: UN Agenda 21“), I found an “agreement” to be signed by cities and/or counties concerning water usage and the limiting thereof.  Since we are facing the precedent of limiting water here on the North Olympic Peninsula (new homes and/or “new use” on properties in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley are limited to 150 gallons of water per day for indoor use only, with an initial “mitigation” fee for the privilege, and NO outdoor watering allowed), I found this a very interesting piece of “connect-the-dots” to Agenda 21.

Who’s Planning Our Lives, and what’s the real “vision”?

as posted on The Whatcom Excavator

Posted 4/18/2013

When you hear terms like “visioning,” “Smart Growth,” “Sustainable Community Planning” and “Community Design Committee” take notice, and be prepared to take action.   Collectivist ideology is pushing the principles of American individualsm aside rapidly.   W.O.W. – Watch out, Whatcom citizens.

Planning throughout Whatcom County – right here, right now – is largely beyond our control.   Most of us would appreciate living in affordable, well-designed communities with safe and beautiful places to ride bicycles, to jog, to walk, to shop, to play, to dine and to work.  However, many community plans that promise to deliver these things actually have two purposes.  One is the ostensible purpose of making a community plan acceptable to people.  And the other – the real long term plan – is to limit personal consumption and choice directed by a globally coordinated top-down system of governance.

The Difference between Planning and Social Engineering

By Henry Lamb
from Americanthinker.com

Posted 3/27/2013

Planning:

About ten miles beyond the Libertyville city limit is a farm owned by Grandpa Jones.  The farm has been in the Jones family for three generations, but now all the Jones kids are grown and have moved away.  Grandpa Jones has decided to sell his 1,600-acre farm and retire.  He made a deal with ABC Developers to sell the farm for $1.6 million, subject to approval of ABC’s subdivision plan by the Planning Commission.

 

ABC presented the plan for “Pleasant Acres” to the Planning Commission.  It proposed changing the zoning of 1,400 acres from agriculture to residential, and 200 acres to commercial.  It dedicated 100 acres to the county school board, which would be held for ten years for the school board to purchase at the same price ABC originally paid for the property.  It proposed a final build-out of 3,250 homes (2.5 homes per acre).  It proposed a shopping center for the 200 acres zoned commercial.

Will booting ICLEI make it easier to implement Agenda 21?

by John Anthony
Sustainable Freedom Lab
for Liberty News Online
12-15-2012
Perceptive citizens know UN Agenda 21’s method for protecting society, the economy and the environment is to control them all. In 1990, ICLEI, was born at the United Nation’s World Congress, specifically to embed this ambitious control at local levels.

By 2010, ICLEI claimed over 600 US communities had signed on for their ‘planning and environmental’ services. Today, that number is shrinking. As awareness of their UN connection spreads, more communities exit the worldwide non-governmental organization than enter.

However, booting ICLEI can create the false sense communities are safe, having successfully thwarted Agenda 21 policies. Oddly, they may have made implementation even easier.

In Spokane Washington, Mayor David Condon wrote, “We have not renewed our membership and are no longer participating [in ICLEI].” According to Westchester County, NY Executive Rob Astorino, “We determined that ICLEI was not an essential service and we dropped the membership.” Continue reading

Recall of Councilor Poppaw Based on Violations of Oath of Office

By Stacy Lynne
for Greeley Gazette


Greeley, Colorado – June 17, 2010 – Councilor Lisa Poppaw violated her sworn oath of office.  She violated her oath by voting for the policies and goals of foreign organizations which are in direct opposition to the United States Constitution.

The Climate Action Plan is a document developed through the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI).  ICLEI is a foreign organization (www.iclei.org) which transforms local government through implementation of climate action plans and long-range sustainability plans (www.un.org; Plan Fort Collins/Local Agenda 21).  The climate action plan, which Councilor Poppaw references as justification for her voting decisions, takes authority from locally elected officials and gives that power to city employees.

The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty: Are Our 2nd Amendment Rights Part Of The Deal?

Op/Ed by Larry Bell
for Forbes Magazine 

 

One year ago I wrote an article titled “U.N. Agreement Should Have All Gun Owners Up In Arms” which has recently gained a great deal of renewed public interest. This update reviews some more recent developments, offering additional perspective about an immediate matter which should be of great concern to all who value rights guaranteed by our Second Amendment.

The Obama administration is actively engaged in negotiations to finalize details for a new global agreement premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates”. As U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon describes its purpose, “Our goal is clear: a robust and legally binding Arms Trade Treaty that will have a real impact on the lives of those millions of people suffering from consequences of armed conflict, repression and armed violence…It is ambitious, but it is achievable.” Continue reading

Ocean County, New Jersey, Blasts UN Agenda 21 in Resolution

Posted July 13, 2012

Written by Alex Newman
The New American

March 9, 2012

 

In yet another victory for liberty-minded activists, local lawmakers in Ocean County, New Jersey, approved a stinging resolution last month blasting the United Nations’ highly controversial Agenda 21, a radical plan to foist so-called “sustainable development” on Americans by stealth.

Communities across America are fighting back against the international program and its tentacles in ever-increasing numbers. And in January, even the Republican National Committee adopted a resolution strongly condemning Agenda 21 and vowing to fight it. Continue reading

Rio+20: ICLEI Members Admit “Bait and Switch” to Boost Climate Agenda

Monday June 18, 2012
News release from Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

Belo Horizonte, Brazil. To advance public action on global warming, participants attending the ICLEI World Congress admitted today that they are deliberately employing new terminology to misdirect opponents and gain acceptance of their efforts to reduce energy use and greenhouse gases. By utilizing terms like “sustainability” and “sustainable development,” the group wants to mask its objectives and disarm would-be critics who might otherwise oppose their agenda, ICLEI attendees confided with CFACT representatives at the conference.

Sustainability Org mocks Glenn Beck at conference; wants to adopt his tactics

by Liz Klimas
for CFACT News

Posted 6/21/2012

Newsflash: Glenn Beck is “totally weird,” or so one organization of local governments focused on sustainability says. But that criticism only goes so far: consider that the same group mocking beck, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, actually thinks Beck is a good example for how to gain a following.

The founder of ICLEI, Jeb Brugmann, was speaking to members over the weekend in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, at its World Congress 2012 meeting ahead of the United Nations sustainability summit — Rio+20 — that begins on Wednesday. In his speech to enliven his audience with the “spirit of audacity that started our movement,” Brugmann looks to Beck as a method for effecting change. Continue reading
