Guess what? In yet another disgusting display of adventures into human nature we have the story of the XYZ army during the XYZ War. Story goes that the XYZ, not wishing to use more soldiers than necessary to guard their prisoners of war, decided to cull out the independent, active prisoners and place them under guard. The others, the passive ones, hardly needed any guarding at all---they went along with the program. So, what did the XYZ find when they separated the two groups? That a mere 5% of the prisoners were the independent, active types. Five percent.
There are 300,000,000 people in the US. Five percent is 15,000,000. Figure half of that for those who aren't going to just sit around and let themselves be Delphi'd in consensus meetings, pushed around by their City Councils, told that they have to agree to lose their private property rights to redevelopment projects, shamed into watching while their neighbors are bullied by Community Oriented Police measures, and flattered into mandatory volunteer programs for local non-profits designed to dictate their life choices.
Yes, that's about SEVEN MILLION PEOPLE in the United States. That's seven times the population of San Francisco. About twice the population of Chicago. About equal to New York. Remember that when you go to a 'visioning meeting' put on by the regional transportation authority and local government. You are just one of millions of people across the nation who are standing up every day and saying 'We will not be bullied into silence. We object to being told that we are a threat to the planet if we live in a house and drive a car. We know that this is just a smokescreen for the plan to run a total information network designed for maximum control of our lives. This is the biggest public relations stunt in the history of the world, and we are not going to go passively.' And remember: Seven million is only two and a half percent.
Speak up, speak out, reach out to those who will be bitterly disappointed to see that the vision of a perfect world of no carbon emissions and smiling people is a sham. A manipulation. An artificial construct designed to direct whole populations to a pre-determined outcome. The obedient, passive, unquestioning mass of consumers ready to turn on their neighbors and report. Is that what we want for our going forward?
Five percent. Make it happen.
Printing out and distributing flyers door to door can be slow. It can be hot, cold, wet, tedious, and demanding. But guess what? It works. It gets the word out. It makes your argument for you clearly, rationally, and in a well-documented way. We have flyers already made for you. Use them. Go to the What Can I Do page, and to the ICLEI page and print the flyers out. It's not too expensive to print one at home and then go to a print shop and copy 100. Cost? About five dollars.Get up early in the morning and drop them on porches. Take them to the coffee shop. Bring them to the Little League game. Drop them in a different area of town, on the porches, every morning for a week. Takes about an hour. Go with a friend and each of you take opposite sides of the street. Don't spend a lot of time talking to people; you'll get sidetracked. Tell them to contact this website for more information.
Guess what else you'll find when you distribute flyers? You'll enjoy it. You'll get exercise, and feel great, and get engaged in the process. So what if it's not sexy---it works! For other ideas on what to do click here. Kick ICLEI out of Los Angeles County, Ventura County, Santa Barbara County, Moorpark, Glendale, Newhall, and Santa Clarita Valley. Stop SCAG from imposing Agenda 21 in Southern California!
Awareness is the first step in the Resistance!
Just heard an interesting interview tonight on NPR's Fresh Air program. The interview was with Gretchen Morgenson, NY Times Financial Columnist, who has written a book about the 'Financial Apocalypse' as she calls it. Particularly notable about the interview is that, although she doesn't mention UN Agenda 21 and probably has no idea that it exists, she brings up many of the seemingly anomalous elements of the melt-down and bailout. She says that it was almost like the regulators were deliberately not protecting the borrowers and were enabling the banks/Fannie Mae to create a situation where they would fail. In fact legislators were being bought off by FNMA.
Of course this is a plank in the Agenda 21 platform of leveling the wealth of Americans to a point below that of the developing world. In the world on the other side of the Looking Glass, making home ownership affordable for everyone in the US meant bankrupting them so that they would lose their homes. Using the tactic of saying one thing but doing the opposite, the public/private partnership of FNMA (Federal National Mortgage Association) made a fortune off of bilking small borrowers, investors, and government sponsors alike. Yes, FNMA is what is called a Government Sponsored Enterprise which means that it is given preferred treatment, reduced reserve requirements etc. and government financial guarantees in exchange for presumably making home ownership more affordable for Americans.
FNMA was a publicly traded company that went into conservatorship (government control) in 2008---after gross speculation on derivatives and the purchase of Countrywide Financial's subprime mortgages.
Gretchen Morgenson said something very important in this interview. She said that it was a situation in which you couldn't argue against the idea. That no one was against increased home ownership. It was like arguing against apple pie. 'The idea was OK,' she said, 'it was the execution that was disastrous.' This is a signature of UN Agenda 21. How can you be against clean air, public transportation, affordable housing, and protecting the beauty of the natural environment? The idea is OK but the execution--BY DESIGN--is disastrous. That is the point. The idea is the candy coating, the execution IS the desired outcome. As Joseph Conrad wrote in The Heart of Darkness: The horror.
You must know by now that every crisis we've seen (Stock Market, Housing Crash, Energy Cost Spike) has been engineered in accordance with UN Agenda 21. Gretchen Morgenson puts the blame on 'greed' but it's much more than that. Greed was used as the leverage for drawing these high level thieves into position to allow the markets to crash. As long as banks were guaranteed bailouts, individual CEOs were made wealthy, and regulators looked the other way, UN Agenda 21 could be implemented. Another way to look at this is to say that everything that did happen was meant to happen by your government. Inflated bubbles that were enabled and created by lack of government oversight points to your government as the source. What are the consequences? None. Bailouts, no jail time, no confiscated personal assets.
This is not a left/right issue. This was the sinking of our country, the devaluation of our land, the crash of our economy, and the systemic vulnerability that we recognize as the antidote to the "unsustainable affluence of Americans."
Now we are ripe for smartgrowth (apartments along transit corridors), public transportation (loss of individual mobility due to high costs), domestic spying (Community Oriented Policing programs), deep unemployment (willingness to do whatever it takes to feed ourselves), and loss of our basic freedoms.
Because in Communitarianism, the 'problem' is created, the 'solution' is the outcome that you never would have agreed to without the urgency of the problem. So the 'problem' is: not enough low income home ownership. The solution is: the housing crisis and financial system collapse. Except the financial system didn't collapse, did it? No. It got bailed out and the smaller players got absorbed into their larger rivals. And you're paying for it with double digit unemployment and total market uncertainty for the long term.
The Neo-Feudalism of UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is reviving serfdom as the condition of the future. If you let it.
We got Delphi'd big time the other night and that train is headed your way. You know that being 'Delphi'd' means that you were subjected to a visioning meeting where the outcome was a done-deal before you walked in the room. They're calling it 'YOU CHOOSE' but the reality is that the only thing that makes it yours is that your taxes pay for it and it will be imposed on you.
In this case it was OneBayArea but in your area it will be called something else, something regional. It's a transportation plan primarily but that's just the excuse for creating a huge master plan based on redevelopment that includes land use restrictions. Basically it's a stack-em and pack-em housing model for an enormous UN Agenda 21/ICLEI plan. Moving you out of your rural and suburban home into a tightly designed, easily monitored apartment or condo with no space for your car and lousy public transportation. The story you'll hear is that the only way that people will take public transportation is if they are crowded into downtown areas, and giving up cars is the main way to stop greenhouse gases. What about electric cars? We're told that driving is anti-social and besides WE NEED EXERCISE! The facilitators, by the way, are complete hypocrites who live in single family homes...just ask them. And they drove to the meeting, too. Greenhouse gases are the green mask.
Regionalism--the intermediate step in globalization, and the method by which laws, rules, and regulations can be standardized so that you can't escape them. The regional push is to restrict future development to redevelopment areas ONLY. Did you get that? If you own land outside of those areas you will not be able to build on it. Now we didn't say 'land outside of the city limits'---no. Land outside of a redevelopment area, outside of a transportation corridor will not be buildable. This is stunning. If your city wants to get a piece of the big funding pie for transportation and planning it has to agree that for the next 25 years the only development will happen within the redevelopment area boundaries. Why are they doing it in redevelopment areas? Because they have the power of eminent domain there and can take your land and give to another private person. The city/county can take the property taxes in that area for the next 30-45 years and use it to pay off bond debt and pay their cronies to develop SmartGrowth. Hear that thunder? It's sellers running to dump their property outside of redevelopment areas and buyers racing to buy within those areas. But quietly, stealthily, because you haven't woken up to it yet.
OK---the meeting. If you've never experienced a Delphi meeting you're in for a shock. Although the facilitators SAY that it's all about hearing your opinion, in fact if you dare to say anything or ask any question that doesn't agree with the steamrollering propaganda machine you'll be shouted down. Yep, supposedly decent Americans from your own community will shout at you like a feral mob and scream that THEY DON'T WANT TO KNOW where the funding for the project came from. THEY DON'T WANT TO KNOW how much the project is costing them. THEY DON'T WANT TO KNOW why the entire plan/project was pre-designed even though it's supposedly being shaped by the public. How much is it costing? $200,000,000,000. THAT'S 200 BILLION DOLLARS JUST IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA.
If you want to keep your community the way it is now it's called 'Business As Usual' and they'll shame you. The choices you are supposed to pick are 'Planned Future' with more and more urban development and more government control. The facilitators go to work on you if you don't want to go along with the program. Punishment, shaming, isolation. The room was packed with elected officials, government employees, non-profit groups, board and committee appointees who made sure that the outcome was the 'right' one.
WHY? Your government/public-private partnership corporate ruler needs you to buy the illusion that you have some say in what happens to you so that you'll BELIEVE THAT YOU LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY. Funny thing is that you live in a Republic that is run as a Democracy. Mob rule is supposed to be controlled by the legal system but unfortunately the courts are part of it. They don't want you to make trouble for them while they sew up the new totalitarian state.
We suggest that you get a copy of 1984 by George Orwell and read it. It's the blueprint for the 21st century.
Read up. Stand up. Speak out. GO TO THE MEETINGS.
STOP ICLEI. STOP REDEVELOPMENT--THE FUNDING AND EMINENT DOMAIN ARM OF UN AGENDA 21.
Do yourself a favor. Right now, go to a search engine like Google, put in the name of your city and 'Redevelopment.' Get the map of the redevelopment areas in your town. That whole area is diverting its property taxes away from your city services--for 30 to 45 years. And it's going to get worse. Read up, Citizen!
Remember the Paul Revere story? The early warning system---The British Are Coming! He rode his horse through the small towns in the Boston area to warn them to get ready for a fight.We are all the NEW PAUL REVERE. All of us. YOU. Get out there and distribute flyers. It's the best way to reach your community. Door to door. Early in the morning. Take the ICLEI flyers and personalize them to your community (click here for the page with the flyers) and KICK ICLEI OUT. Now, use Michael Shaw's website, www.FreedomAdvocates.org for templates on making city ordinances. Once you've gotten ICLEI out you'll have to make sure that your General Plan is rewritten to purge the restrictions on land use and the energy goals. Remember, as nice as all of that sounds--more open space, bike lanes, better transit options---it's just the mask for fascism. Suppose I told you that you could get your room for free, your food for free, your clothes for free, and your education for free. What's the catch? You're in prison.None of that is free. You pay. Your property taxes, sales taxes, and income taxes pay for those pretty ideas, and the prison walls get a little closer all the time. Who loses? Seniors, the middle class, all of us. It's just like a horror film where the pretty girl becomes a vampire. Money is expended for more and more layers of government, more boards and commissions, more public/private partnerships where if you think you're one of the chosen you'll soon discover that you're RECYCLABLE. No loyalty.It won't be long before no one is left who remembers what it was like to live with enough. Desperation for money and food will drive people to do terrible things. Especially people in big cities who have no 'community.' You see, the rhetoric about 'creating community' is a lie. They, ICLEI, are destroying community. You feel it don't you? Just one person can do a lot now. YOU. Get out there and pass out flyers. An hour a day. Every morning a different part of your city--WALK IT, BIKE IT, DRIVE IT. POST THOSE FLYERS AND KICK ICLEI OUT. CITIZEN, TAKE BACK YOUR NATION!
Regionalization. If you don't know what it is, you will soon. It's the interim step on the road to globalization. The creation of another layer of government, unelected, unaccountable. A conglomeration of municipalites who are making new laws and goals that supercede their local laws---then they'll go back to the local community and say that they are required to bring their local laws into line. A manipulation.
The following story is set in the San Francisco Bay Area but it could be in your area. And it will be soon.
There are Delphi meetings going on all over the nine county San Francisco Bay Area right now. Put on by www.OneBayArea.org they are public/private meetings organized by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, Association of Bay Area Governments, and local agencies and groups.As you know, a Delphi meeting is set up on the premise that the organizer is 'welcoming the public's input' but the truth is that the outcome of the meeting was determined in advance. The public is there for a propaganda session and to give the illusion that there was public buy-in. Typically participants are given crayons and paper like children and told to 'design' a perfect community. This utopia was miraculously envisioned in advance and is produced on colored maps with lots of pretty pictures of middle class people recreating. The goal is to homogenize the Bay Area and the nation with 'smart growth'--mixed use developments subsidized by your property tax dollars, with ground floor shops and two to four stories of residential units above. Very little parking, very little open space, few private outdoor areas. Constructed right next to a busy street or rail-line (active or not), these condo and apartment developments discourage private vehicles. Planning documents for each and every city and county are standardized and brought into alignment with this idea. No one can get anything built that does not conform to this plan, and only government-subsidized developers (cronies) can get their projects built. Banks won't lend on these projects without government guarantees because they often have high vacancy, crime, and poor maintenance. Typically the retail space never rents up or rents for far less than the developer expected, but he's long gone...sold the project to some investor with dreams of a big return---soon to be in foreclosure. Mixed use only works in highly urbanized areas where there are enough residents to support the retail. San Francisco is an example. Typically, most smaller cities cannot support this model.Forget the idea of a 'level playing field' because no private owner can get their project through the Planning Commission and City Council. And nothing is permitted by right anymore--in other words just because your property is zoned for a use doesn't mean you can build it. Years of paying consultants, permit expediters, architects, planners, and lawyers bankrupts many while they're waiting for approvals. Often the developer has gotten a private loan from an elderly investor who then loses everything when the developer stops paying. Up here in Sonoma County we have developers Alan Strachan and Orin Theissen as the most infamous for that behavior. They've both been hailed as 'visionaries' for their disneyland-like failed SmartGrowth developments. And you'll recall that Alan Strachan had been poised to offer 'Green Energy Loans' as a boondoggle pushed by the sponsors of One Bay Area.
This is social engineering. These developments are designed for the minimum of privacy, and to allow controlling energy and water agencies the option of limiting your usage without your input. In the guise of environmentalism the stress of living will increase through greater regulation and restrictions. This is a giant redevelopment plan with the power of eminent domain. STOP ONE BAY AREA NOW.For a look at an incredible grassroots success at anti-Delphi-ing one of these meetings take a look at this youtube. The whole meeting is a great example of how to take over one of these meetings and how to assert yourself as a citizen, but if you go to the beginning of the second hour on this youtube you'll get the essence of it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kH5KYGV8314
NEW YORK (WCBS 880/AP) — Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for better rail security now that the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound has turned up plans to attack trains in the U.S. “Anyone, even a member of al-Qaida could purchase a train ticket and board an Amtrak train without so much as a question asked,” Schumer said. “So that’s why I’m calling for the creation of an Amtrak no ride list. That would take the secure flight program and apply it to Amtrak trains.”How convenient. Next will be buses. Then taxis. Then you'll have to have your papers on you at all times. Or they'll check your retinal scan. Or your handprint. That was easy, wasn't it? YOUR PAPERS, PLEASE..... OR WHAT? It starts like this, and slowly you will not be free to travel. The War on Terror is a war on YOU.
OK. YOU JUST FOUND OUT YOUR TOWN OR COUNTY OR COUNTRY IS A MEMBER OF ICLEI--INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL ON LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES. SEE OUR FLYERS TO KICK ICLEI OUT OF YOUR COMMUNITY--CLICK HERE (pdf)What does this mean?FROM ICLEI-USA WEBSITE (Member Benefits):What ICLEI Members Receive:
- Clean Air & Climate Protection (CACP) Software and training
- Tools, guidebooks, case studies, and other resources, including a library of local government sample ordinances, policies, resolutions, and other documents
- Webinar trainings and regional workshops
- State, regional, national and international peer networking opportunities
- Technical and programmatic expertise and assistance from our regional staff
- Regional, state, and federal funding updates, as well as federal and international policy analyses
If you read that carefully then you are concerned. Very concerned. Because you now see that the ordinances, resolutions, regulations, and restrictions being imposed by your council or board of supervisors is coming from an international group with a fully designed one-size-fits-all blueprint for your life. Just in case your community government has trouble with you or with these policies they, ICLEI, give them training in how to handle you, how to impose legislation (with samples), goals, targets, fine structures, and restrictions. Your government is given opportunities to get together with ICLEI facilitators outside of your view...to plan your future. Sinister? YES. TRUE? YES. OK, you say, since you're not convinced, and you think that maybe this is a good thing because we should all be coordinated in our energy usage and planning...you say: Why should I be concerned if an international group is dictating policy to my government? Why should I be concerned if I don't have a vote on these issues? Why should I be concerned that goals and targets have been established for me without my knowledge?Time for a tutorial...Let's use ICLEI's own website links where they tell you all about one of their favorite projects, PlaNYC, a New York City plan involving a huge developer, a redevelopment project, eminent domain, and a fierce community fight--here it is---READ HERE.The bottom line? What your government says is good for you and good for the environment, and good for government and good for a fat cat developer might only be good for................you guessed it. MEOW!
- Annual training and leadership events
- Recognition and awards
- Representation at international meetings
We receive letters on this theme occasionally and thought we'd share one with you and show you our response.
Our local Tea Party Patriots is making us aware of your content. With President Obama taking the lead into world order, why would you want to warn the American people? Forgive me for being blunt but both political parties are at fault. Hence the foundation of the Tea Party Patriots.
Thanks for your note. We agree that both political parties are committed to implementing Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. If you're referring to our name we'd like to point out that very few liberal-identified people are aware of UN Agenda 21. Many have embraced the tenets due to manipulation in the political and educational systems. We are making common cause with all people who seek to expose Communitarianism and we are making a special effort to reach those who identify as liberals. Unless all of us are aware of the manipulation behind redevelopment, smart growth, globalization etc. we will not be able to stop it. Our site is designed to appeal to those on the left while embracing all who wish to learn more about UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development.
Thank you for your comments, and we hope to meet you at our conference on August 6.
