Fortune Magazine (Fortune 500/Time, Inc.) published an article yesterday highlighting me and our fight against UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. The article is a nuanced manipulation that lies by omission and half-truths, and slimes by intent. David Morris, the author, brings in ICLEI public relations and the Southern Poverty Law Center to 'balance' the article, and then concludes that Agenda 21 is necessary to save the planet---it 'requires some sacrifices, not all of them made entirely willingly'. The following quote is from our interview; David Morris asked me if I had anything to add.
I guess what I want to ask you, David, is 'How committed you are to representing a particular point of view that's going to marginalize what I've told you?' I'm hoping that you're going to write an article that is genuine and fair...We have something serious going on in our country and around the world and it needs to be dealt with in a serious manner. If the major corporations which own the media are controlling that information we will not be able to get that information out to the people so that they can make these decisions for themselves. So I'm hoping--you have an opportunity here--and I'm really hoping that you're going to use it.
Watch the interview here on YouTube and read the article (click). Judge for yourself how the media operates to manipulate public opinion and block the truth.
Michael Shaw of Freedom Advocates has issued a powerful challenge to the pushers of Plan Bay Area: billboards targeting commuters on heavily traveled Interstate 580 in northern California.
Shaw is our co-plaintiff in the lawsuit against Plan Bay Area, and he is taking steps to put free speech to the test here in California. State law says that billboards must be licensed to advertise through major billboard owners or, alternately, only advertise the business on which the sign is located. Shaw owns the property but has posted a free speech message, not an advertisement. His message is one of liberty, and his goal is to raise the consciousness of the thousands who see it daily.
Take a look. Spread the word.
The American Planning Association has a couple of slogans that you should know about:
"Making Great Communities Happen."
The APA wants you to know that without them you'd just be a mess. Here's what they say in their Communications Bootcamp Webinar #1 (November 4, 2011):
"PLANNERS ARE THE GUARDIANS OF THE FUTURE."
The 'guardians of the future' is a mighty important position---one that most of us are unaware of, and to which we don't recall electing anyone from the APA.
"PLANNING IS ABOUT LEADING, INNOVATING AND INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION."
A profession that has such a high opinion of itself should be committed to following an ethical road but you'll see that the American Planning Association encourages planners to manipulate outcomes to---what?---protect the plan! They want your info, but only so they can use it to fight you.
The planners who work in your local planning department or are the consultants hired to craft your local plan (or the 'regional' plan) are members of the American Planning Association. You are paying them. Those who work for your local government are civil servants who expect long term employment with a pension at the end of their term. These planners are advising your local elected officials; your mayor, the planning commissioners, the council people, the county supervisors etc. Most of those elected officials will be in and out of office while the staff stay on for twenty years or more. The staff (the planners) was trained by and uses American Planning Association materials. Staff lives in your town usually. Here's what the APA advises them to do when we come out to tell the truth about their plans:
Build up your base.
And now for the conclusion!
"Planning needs to be reframed as something pivotal to the return of American prosperity and economic strength."
Yes, the APA wants you to know that if it were not for those planners overlaying transit oriented zoning all over your town we'd be doomed to crushing economic collapse forever...as we may well be if they keep overlaying transit oriented zoning all over our towns. And the APA wants us to believe that if we don't think REGIONALLY we're doomed. And the APA wants us to believe that if we don't go along with 'planned future' we'll die.
Now, instead of "planning" go back to the sections in blue and replace the word 'PLANNING' with ... the name of a religion that you might not agree with....and read it again. Do you believe? You need to have faith in Planning. You must trust that the planners are making great communities happen through their collective strength and superior vision. Planners are the leaders of the next generation---they told you so.
Are the planners the holy priests? The guardians of our future? The creators of the grand utopia that we are too stupid to accept without a struggle? The holy seers who redesign our lives and fight us when we foolishly object?
Are you making charitable contributions? volunteering? Take a look at some of ICLEI's funders and then think about their links to other groups that you may be funding or participating in. Withdraw your support from those who are working against you. If you listen to National Public Radio or watch PBS you'll recognize many of these groups. Ask yourself why the US Department of State and US EPA are funding ICLEI with your taxes? What will you do about it? AT LEAST REFUSE TO GO ALONG.
ICLEI--International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives: Funders
From the website: iclei.org
"Generous Giving. Sustained Growth
ICLEI is able to provide best-in-class service to our members and elevate local climate action and sustainability to remarkable levels only through the generous support of the following private foundations, federal agencies and other entities:
Wondering if the group you're researching has an affiliation with the UN? Does it have general or special consultative status enabling it to have special access to UN meetings and commissions?
If it's the World Wide Fund for Nature, or the American Society of International Law, or the International Chamber of Commerce, you'll find it on this list...Click here
It's gone out of fashion to label yourself or others these days, and no wonder. It can be hard to know what your political affiliation is when progressives are socialists, libertarians come in all flavors across the spectrum, and independents try to find their way out of the maze without stepping in anything.
Now you'll get your choice of a Bush or a Clinton again as the game continues. Whoopee, we get to vote for a woman. As a feminist in the 80's I lost my enthusiasm for gender-based voting when Margaret Thatcher took over the UK. Genitalia doesn't guarantee a viewpoint. In fact, voting on that basis is a fool's game. When Hilary ran the last time I said "Who better than a woman to take our rights away?" Well, we saw the answer to that with Obama. The illusion of concern for your rights is all that's necessary when the regime has a 'show Congress' and a fascist game plan. That game plan includes green energy and climate action plans regardless of political party or gender when you're playing 'The Price is Right' with our lives.
Putting on a green mask and promising the green new deal is a sure way to enrich the tech/energy companies and drain ratepayers and taxpayers while ensuring big campaign contributions. Yes, it's loan guarantees for solar farms and wind farms, huge cash grants through production tax credits (over $8 billion dollars by 2012), and over $15 billion in treasury grants for wind. The new green deal stinks like festering slime in an algae encrusted pool.
You're about to see carbon credits used as the new medium of exchange on a personal level---use more than your water allotment? Go to the local water exchange to buy enough credits for your vegetable garden. Meanwhile the huge corporate farms will be making 'donations' to Congress and the environmental groups that are pushing these new green requirements for your future poverty. Artificial scarcity. Loss of independence. Pay more for that power than ever before while using less. Ahh, the joys of the Smart Grid.
What happens while your government partners with the power generators and the huge corporations and the environmental foundations? Your credits can be cut, your allotments can be reduced, your debt will be increased, your options narrowed. Going green. When you're promised something for nothing you'd better do your research and ask the hard questions.
The green mask looks good---that's why it's so appealing. When you look behind it, it doesn't pass the smell test. You'll be up to your ankles in the green pool while holding a live wire. Zap.
IT DOESN'T COME WITH FLASHING LIGHTS AND IT WON'T BE CALLED UN AGENDA 21. BUT IT IS.
Debt for Nature. Club of Paris agreement (1990 Houston terms) to have debtor nations manage their debt by converting it to 'conservation projects' for their creditors' benefit. Now we see that the China Connection in Nevada has the distinct odor of Debt for Nature.
To get a bit more perspective on the concept let's take a look at an interview with 'anti-anthropologist' Professor Maurice Bloch, as quoted in Eurozine (click to read)
Maurice Bloch: "To that I would add one thing that I think is very important. That is that in Madagascar, the development experts are being replaced by conservationists who wield tremendous power. They are largely motivated by some general kind of ideologies about ecology in the world, about preserving forests or some species, which is obviously a good idea. But what they really want is to have large reserves in places like Madagascar. They want to turn the whole country into a national park. Countries like Madagascar are hugely indebted. And European and North-American countries perform a kind of blackmail, which they call "swapping debt for nature". If you'll have natural parks then we'll drop the debt. And of course, the Malagassy government can't resist. The Malagassy elite are quite happy to have as many natural parks as the wealthy countries like, because the parks bring experts and the experts bring their money. But for the local people, it means that their land is just being taken away. They are not allowed to cultivate their land anymore. And they say, quite rightly, "the land has gone to the Americans". Villagers see their field on the other side of the fence; if they go to their field they will be fined or imprisoned, while they see American or European natural scientists wandering around on it. It's a terrible situation.
"Those anthropologists who work there have denounced very strongly what is going on in ecology. But they find that because of the power and self-righteousness of the ecological discourse, it is difficult to get heard. "
Now think about China's connection to the US in terms of debt.
This is US law:
Global Environmental Protection Assistance Act of 1989
Title 22, Chapter 32, Subchapter I, Part VII, Section 2281
Sec. 2281. - ''Debt-for-nature exchange'' defined
For purpose of this part, the term ''debt-for-nature exchange'' means the cancellation or redemption of the foreign debt of the government of a country in exchange for -
(1) that government's making available local currencies (including through the issuance of bonds) which are used only for eligible projects involving the conservation or protection of the environment in that country (as described in section 2283 of this title); or
(2) that government's financial resource or policy commitment to take certain specified actions to ensure the restoration, protection, or sustainable use of natural resources within that country; or
(3) a combination of assets and actions under both paragraphs (1) and (2)

Our groups, Democrats Against UN Agenda 21, and Post Sustainability Institute, and I have been label as 'extremists' by the Southern Poverty Law Center for the second year in a row. They have written a report entitled Agenda 21: The UN, Sustainability, and Right-wing Conspiracy Theory. Aside from the fact that the SPLC is using the tactics they accuse others of using in order to supplement their huge financials assets (over $250 million) and elicit reactions from those on the left who don't do their own homework, it is important to note that they offer 'briefings' to law enforcement personnel and are members of the American Bar Association. The ethics of labeling a group of law-abiding citizens who are exercising their First Amendment rights as 'extremists' who are 'not necessarily advocating violence' are in serious question here. This is not a 'report,' this is a smear designed to chill our civil rights. WE WILL NOT BE SILENT.
This morning CSPAN aired a panel discussion at USC's Annenberg School of Journalism between whistleblowers Daniel Ellsberg, Tom Drake, Jesselyn Radack (attorney for Snowden) and Robert Scheer, USC professor sponsored by the Government Accountability Project. This is a MUST SEE program. CLICK TO WATCH. One hour of your time. If you want to hear the truth about the NSA, about the Obama and other administrations, about the state of journalism now and about your future, you must watch this program.
WE ARE LOSING OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC AND YOU MUST ACT TO FIGHT FOR IT. STAND UP NOW. SPEAK OUT NOW. EDUCATE YOURSELF AND OTHERS.
IT IS YOUR DUTY AS A FREE MAN OR WOMAN TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS. NO ONE WILL DO THIS FOR YOU. DO IT NOW, BY REFUSING THE LIES. DO IT BY DIRECTING PEOPLE TO THE TRUTH. DO IT BY HAVING THE COURAGE TO SPEAK OUT. MAKE FLYERS, SPREAD THE TRUTH.
YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO SPEAK OUT. DO IT.
On the same day that activists met from all over the United States for a showdown at the Bundy Corral, soldiers from the newly minted Ukrainian army rode into eastern Ukraine to take it back.
In both situations the controversy made it hard for many to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Classic Agenda 21.
Cliven Bundy and his many supporters have said that they do not recognize the federal authority over his historic grazing rights.
Eastern Ukrainians 'ethnic Russians' have said that they do not recognize the authority of the new Ukrainian government to overturn their vote to secede and join Russia.
In Ukraine, poorly prepared western Ukrainian troops in tanks rode into the east thinking that they would just take over, and got the shock of their lives. Crowds of people holding glasses of vodka and smoking cigarettes surrounded the tanks and shamed the soldiers right out of them. They clambered into the armored vehicles and drove them into the town square where they did donuts and laughed.
In Nevada, the federal snipers and Bureau of Land Management personnel pulled out when faced with hundreds of armed constitutionalists and many more on the way.
In both cases the dominant government forces have been repelled by the people. In both cases soldiers did not fire on their own people. How long will that last? Regardless of where you come down on these issues, one thing is clear. It won't be a cakewalk. The people will resist.
Regime Change is UN Agenda 21. Anything to destroy the equilibrium of the status quo. Whether it's Arab Spring or Ukraine or the United States, the goal is to gain control of power and direct it to a more technologically controllable outcome. Restricting our access to land, rights to water, property ownership, free speech, assembly, privacy--all is UN Agenda 21.
AWARENESS IS THE FIRST STEP IN THE RESISTANCE.
As reported in the Daily Beast (click here for smear story)
"SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER
Active ‘Patriot’ Groups in the United States in 2013
The Intelligence Project identified 1,096 anti-government “Patriot” groups that were active in 2013.
Generally, Patriot groups define themselves as opposed to the “New World Order,” engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing, or advocate or adhere to extreme antigovernment doctrines. Listing here does not imply that the groups themselves advocate or engage in violence or other criminal activities, or are racist.
The list was compiled from field reports, Patriot publications, the Internet, law enforcement sources and news reports."
Democrats Against UN Agenda 21 and the Post Sustainability Institute are, again, on the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of Patriot groups. The criteria for making this list are quite interesting. The SPLC purports to identify hate groups and to advocate for those who are being discriminated against or targeted for violence. The SPLC mainly focuses on skinhead groups and anti-gay groups but they're branching out and including us in their scope. Why?
If you look at what they say above, the criteria for list selection include opposing the New World Order (does SPLC support it?), 'groundless' conspiracy theorizing (SPLC refuses to acknowledge objective reality), and advocating or adhering to 'extreme anti-government doctrines' (like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?).
There was a time in the past when, as gay people, we might have donated to SPLC. About 25% of their website is devoted to fundraising for themselves. They engage in spreading misinformation about UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development and are themselves representing the New World Order by targeting groups who would re-erect the guarantees of the US Constitution. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness extends beyond racial and social lines. Our government exists to protect the individual. Our rights to free speech, to our property, to our privacy---guaranteed by the Constitution. The term 'Patriots,' according to the SPLC, is now under suspicion, and those who question government tactics and object to subversion, manipulation, privacy invasion, and 'transformation' are targeted on their list.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is a fraud and a sham. Although they have a disclaimer that they don't imply that we advocate or engage in violence or other criminal activities, or are racist they are fully aware that targeting us on their list may serve to chill our civil rights or turn people against us. They are engaging in their own brand of hate speech. It might help their fundraising but it also shines a light on their bias and willingness to go along to get along with liberty-destroying regimes. The Southern Poverty Law Center purports to have some familiarity with Nazi tactics. Perhaps too much.
LIES AND DISINFORMATION ON UN AGENDA 21 IS UN AGENDA 21
In meetings across California, unelected and unaccountable regulators are setting up networks of regional government that are usurping local control from you and your duly elected city, county, community and other local officials. These regional bodies are not acting in the “public good” but are reinventing a government that strips property rights away from legitimate property owners and instead gives them to a chosen few under the auspices of programs such as “sustainable development”, ”smart growth” and “public-private partnerships.”
Are you a property owner? Do you value local control of your communities by your duly elected officials? If so, then the time to act is NOW!
The Globalization of California Forum brings top recognized experts together (Michael Shaw, Patrick Wood, Rosa Koire, Debbie Bacigalupi, Heather Gass, Mike Munzing, Matt Grocott, Steve Brandau) to reveal the details and the necessary actions to put a stop to it!

Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg is betting $2 billion that you'll prefer virtual reality to the real thing. He has just invested in Oculus, a company that makes headsets for virtual reality personal imaging. The 'story' is that this is all about gaming but it's not a big leap to virtual classrooms, virtual travel, virtual relationships, and virtual meals. What does this mean for your future?
It's not a new idea to say that internet use is habit-forming. You've also experienced or witnessed the gaming 'addiction' either personally or in your family members. Now get ready for obsession on steroids with virtual reality. When you put on this headset your body will respond to the 3D images as if they are truly reality. If you're wearing it and you look down you'll see your feet -- but they'll be the feet of the supermodel you see when you look in the virtual mirror. When you look up you'll see the cosmos through the space capsule window, or the Sistine Chapel ceiling as you walk alone through the building. Lift the virtual fork to your virtual mouth and eat the gorgeous meal in Paris. Look into the eyes of your virtual partner as you profess eternal love. Walk across a tightrope over a deep canyon. Kill an enemy.
Your palms will sweat, your heart will beat faster, your eyes will dilate, your lungs will suck in air more deeply, and your nervous system will respond. Although your physical responses with the current virtual reality headset are not exactly like they would be if the experience were real, the future will most certainly include smells and sensations---like the 'Feelies' described in Huxley's Brave New World. The addition of these sense stimulators will fool the brain.
Yes, it's a movie, a 3D virtual surround movie, but your body will respond as if it were real. Your brain will believe that it is real. It will, in fact, be far more appealing than your actual un-virtual life. The stimulation your brain receives will be thrilling, and you'll be content to sit strapped in your chair living your virtual life. Is this a fantasy? No. Look at this 1978 study in Science Magazine stating that Rhesus monkeys, when caged and given the choice of food or cocaine, chose cocaine 'almost exclusively.' The addiction to virtual experience may likely lead to people sitting at their computers starving to death in their Smart Growth unit. Who needs living space or transportation when they're strapped to a virtual reality unit? Who needs relationships or families or pets when virtual reality is so much more satisfying and uncomplicated? Children will be extremely vulnerable to this fabulous new life---virtual teachers in virtual classrooms will teach limited learning for lifelong labor. Rewards for correct behavior may be virtual, but the brain and body will accept them as real. Real personal interaction will be miserably inadequate when compared to the ecstatic joys of virtual life.
According to Stanford Professor Jeremy Bailenson, whose book Infinite Reality examines all aspects of virtual reality research, the time is coming when holograms will be in use by average people--you'll be able to take a virtual walk with a friend in real time and that friend will appear to be with you. You won't be able to trust your eyes when you see what appears to be reality. There will be no objective reality.
Just like you asked for Facebook, and begged for smart phones, and jumped on Second Life, you'll love the novelty of virtual reality---until it is no longer a novelty. It will be a health care requirement to provide virtual reality to the handicapped, it will be used to perform mental health assessments, it will be a virtual teacher and a virtual classroom to billions, it will be used to keep prisoners quiet, it will be used to dumb down and pacify the populace. It is the face of UN Agenda 21.
Can you resist or will you accept it as an inevitability?
RESIST SOCIAL MANIPULATION.
THIS IS UN AGENDA 21.
