President Trump's Executive Order on Promoting Agriculture and Rural Property in America

Photo: Ileana Johnson
President Trump’s Executive Order on Promoting Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America which was signed on April 25, 2017, is significant in many ways, not the least of which is the Revocation of Executive Order 13575 of June 9, 2011, issued by President Obama, the Establishment of the White House Rural Council.

I wrote about the June 9, 2011 13575 order as soon as it was released and I have included it in my best-seller book, “U.N. Agenda 21: Environmental Piracy.” (pp. 88-91) This executive order established unchecked federal control over rural America in education, food supply, land use, water use, recreation, property rights, energy, and the lives of sixteen percent of the U.S. population. The executive order carefully chose the rural population because “they supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation.” To sum it up, he who controls the food, land, and water controls everything else.

The executive order of 2011 was promoted, “To enhance the Federal Government’s efforts to address the needs of rural America, this order establishes a council to better coordinate Federal programs and maximize the impact of Federal investment to promote economic prosperity and quality of life in our rural communities.” On the face of it, it sounds benign enough; except that it discusses sustainable rural development; the new bureaucracy to oversee it came from and was called the White House Rural Council. Sustainable Development is the lynchpin of U.N. Agenda 21 now morphed into U.N.’s Agenda 2030, U.N.’s blue print for global governance and control of human activity and private property.

President Trump revoked President Obama’s Executive Order 13575 and replaced it with “Promoting Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America.” His EO establishes the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity, with administrative support and funding from the Department of Agriculture, within the boundaries of law and “within existing appropriations.” The Secretary of Agriculture will be the Chair of the Task Force composed of 21 secretaries, assistants, directors, and heads of executive departments within the federal government.

The Task Force “shall identify legislative, regulatory, and policy changes to promote in rural America agriculture, economic development, job growth, infrastructure improvements, technological improvements, energy security, and quality of life such as:

-          Remove barriers to economic prosperity

-          Adoption of innovations and technology for agricultural production and long-term sustainable rural development

-          Educational opportunities in agricultural education, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics

-          Empower state, local, and tribal agencies to implement rural economic development, agricultural, and environmental programs to relevant regional circumstances

On the surface, this is a good idea, however, most states, local, and tribal agencies have been infiltrated by the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), an unelected U.N. organization which stealthily formulates regional and local development plans and then presents their “visioning,” already approved and signed by the board of supervisors, to the population at large, “the stakeholders.” Regionalism is also an important goal of Agenda 21/2030.

-          Respect “regional diversity of farms and ranches”

-          Rely on “best available science when reviewing or approving crop protection tools”

-          Access to a “reliable workforce in agriculture-related and rural-focused businesses”

-          Preserve “family farms and agribusiness operations when passed from one generation to the next,” making changes “to the estate tax and the tax valuation of family or cooperatively held businesses”

-          “Ensure that water users’ private property rights are not encumbered when they attempt to secure permits to operate on public lands”

-          Improve food safety based on science and “account for the unique circumstances of farms and ranches”

-          “Encourage the production, export, and use of domestically produced agricultural products”

-          “Address hurdles associated with access to resources on public lands for the rural communities that rely on cattle grazing, timber harvests, mining, recreation, and other multiple uses”

This is an interesting development as many farmers and ranchers have been battling the Bureau of Land Management and the Environmental Protection Agency for their generational use of public and private lands; farmers fought the EPA and their restrictive regulations that prevented them from using their land for farming purposes; individuals who collected rainwater and snow melt and were fined and jailed; and ranchers whose cattle were prohibited from and eventually killed for grazing on public lands.

President Trump directed that other executive orders he issued be coordinated with his EO on Promoting of Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America:

-          EO 13771, Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs (January 30, 2017)

-          EO 13778, Restoring the Rule of Law, Federalism, and Economic Growth by Reviewing the “Waters of the United States” Rule (February 28, 2017)

-          EO 13783, Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth (March 28, 2017)

It remains to be seen how the highly entrenched bureaucrats will implement this executive order coming from our president with whom they fundamentally disagree, a president who wants to keep his campaign promises to the American people and also considering the fact that life-long Democrat and Republican establishment bureaucrats do not represent nor “serve” the interests of the American people.

Cultural Marxism and Euphemisms

Cultural Marxist academics, their sycophant students, and the main stream media are at war with America – a war of violent Marxist ideology and a war of cleverly chosen words and euphemisms that appear time and time again in many college courses, high school classes, in propaganda literature, newspapers, conferences, and in the manufactured news. Cultural Marxists are regular guests on all the alphabet soup networks masquerading as real news, spewing their hatred, their disdain and disrespect for our President, and their calls to renewed violence in the streets through their masked Black Shirts.

As David Horrowitz said, “Worse yet, this is the dominant culture in our universities, in our media, in our judiciary, in government, in unions, and in the shadow political universe of non-profits, with billions of tax-free dollars at their disposal.”

Language is a powerful tool of discourse, mass political indoctrination and agitation. Marxist Democrats are quite adept at using inflammatory language and deceptive euphemisms to suit their nefarious political ends.

In any kind of ideological and political war, the first victim is truth, replaced with lies, dressed cleverly by rhetoric, obfuscation, and intentional debasement of language.

George Orwell wrote an essay in 1946, “Politics and the English Language,” focusing on language which “is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” Such language, often vague and meaningless, concealed the oppressive ideology.

Taking private property from farmers and other owners is thus called “transfer of population” or “rectification of frontiers.” The process of sending people to gulags to die becomes “elimination of unreliable elements.” “Pacification” attempted to defend the indefensible acts of bombing and driving out locals from their ancestral lands and giving the land to a population protected by the intentions of the elites.

Orwell pointed out that “the great enemy of clear language is insincerity.” The less sincere the speaker or writer is, particularly politicians and journalists, the more they “disguise their intentions behind euphemisms and convoluted phrasing.”

Academic writing is resplendent with “pretentious diction” and “meaningless words.” According to Orwell, “In certain kinds of writing, particularly in art criticism and literary criticism, it is normal to come across long passages which are almost completely lacking in meaning.”

Concurrent with “Politics and the English Language,” Orwell published “The Prevention of Literature.” The two essays reflect his alarm over the victimization of truth in the distorted use of language. Orwell pointed out the “deliberate use of misleading double-talk language among those he identified as pro-Soviet.” He predicted the type of literature under a future totalitarian society – “formulaic and low grade sensationalism.”

Analyzing some of the euphemisms conceived by today’s progressives, and I only scratched the surface, we realize that Orwell’s words from sixty years ago are still true.

Undocumented worker” is an obvious mischaracterization of illegal aliens who are invading our country with the approval of corporatist elites in both Democrat and Republican parties. These individuals do have documents from their countries of origin and have broken the law by crossing our borders illegally. Not only are they not repatriated, they are given equal rights with Americans so that corrupt politicians can stay in power in Democrat states like California. These people become illegal voters even though they do not speak the language, do not understand our laws, our Constitution, and do not care that they are helping transform our country into the hell hole they’ve fled. So long as they get undeserved welfare and Social Security benefits, they will vote Democrat in perpetuity.

Our core values” is Democrat double-speak for demographic and cultural suicide. We allow every unvetted flotsam and jetsam from around the world into our country, disregarding the interests of the American public, their safety, health, and well-being under the guise of “that is not who we are as a nation.” The Democrat Party and the leftist agenda are now making the decision of who we are as a nation and as people, without bothering to consult the rest of America.

If we want to uphold law and order, our borders, language, and culture, we are “bigoted.” The meaning of “bigoted” has been stretched and bastardized to now mean pretty much anything the left wants it to mean. Yet it seems that leftists are truly intolerant toward those holding different opinions. They often turn their intolerance into violence, silencing the opposition and their right to free speech especially in the bastions of liberal academia around the country.

Additionally, if you disagree with any goals of the leftist agenda, you are “racist.” The real meaning of “racism” as described in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities, and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race,” has been lost in the leftist double-talk.

If you want legal immigration and national borders, safe from criminals, gangs, disease, and jihadi intrusions, you are a “xenophobe.” All foreign-born individuals who are now proud American citizens and prefer that immigrants follow the rule of law just like they did, are accused of xenophobia, “undue fear of what is foreign and especially of people of foreign origin.”

If you condemn militant jihad, hijra, and Islamic violence, you are an “Islamophobe.” That word silences the opposition so that the liberal goal of unrestricted Islamic invasion continues.

Liberals call themselves “progressives” even though their goals have nothing to do with progress but with regression to a totalitarian and oppressive communist society which has failed everywhere it has been tried. Liberals are repackaging the Bolshevik effort t by saying that communism was not implemented the right way.

Liberalism” does not really represent the meaning of the Latin word, “liber” (free). Liberalism is disguised incremental socialism that will eventually lead to global communism.  “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of “liberalism” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

People accept the word “global citizen” without ever asking themselves what it entails. A “global citizen” is an individual who lives in a country that is no longer a state; it has no borders, no sovereignty, no national identity, no passport, and no national history.  Yet most schools and colleges advertise that their students have been brainwashed and prepared for global citizenship.

On campuses around the country, “snowflakes” are cowering and hiding in their “safe spaces” in fear of reality that contradicts what they’ve been told and taught since they were born and led across a stage and given participation trophies.

The word “inhumane” (without compassion for misery or suffering; cruel) has been trivialized to excuse any breaking of the law without punishment and repercussions. In the mentally disordered liberal brain, suffering the consequences of bad choices, decisions, and subsequent criminality has become cruel and “inhumane.

The word “diversity” is no longer used as being diverse and different; it is now a liberal code word for perversity which must be acknowledged by the other side, encoded into law, and enforced by the courts.

Homosexuality hides behind the word “gay” which previously meant “happy.” Different types of deviance are disguised behind the words “cross-dressers.” “Gender fluidity” can be interpreted as any sexual anomaly and psychological confusion – anything flows.

“Multiculturalism” is the code word for Cultural Marxism agenda and the transformation of your country into a tower of Babel of illegal immigrants who have no intention of assimilating or accepting the invaded culture, its laws, its history, and its language. It is considered “inhumane” to force such illegal aliens to assimilate and contribute to society in a meaningful way.

Liberals force their ideas, plans, and global agenda on the rest of us in the name of “civil society.” This represents the globalist elites backed by power, influence, and money to socially engineer our lives any way they wish because they know best what is good for billions of people around the globe and the faux science backing them “has been settled.”

The laws and cries of “equal opportunity” coming from various special interest groups are not really asking for “equality,” they are asking for preferential treatment. And “social justice” is not asking for justice, it is asking for government sanctioned stealing, taking private property and money from those who worked for it and earned it, and giving it to those who did not earn it and are not entitled to it.

Social Security is not an “entitlement,” it is money that people have earned and contributed into a fund for decades in order to provide them with income in retirement.  It is theft when Social Security money is given to illegal aliens as soon as they set foot on our soil.

Liberals created special and protected categories for some races and ethnic groups such as calling Hispanic women “Latinas.  To my knowledge, Latium was a region in the former Roman Empire, thus those people could be called Latinas and Latini. Black people are now “African Americans” even though most of them have never set foot in Africa nor were they born there. Caucasians don’t call themselves European Americans. There are Africans who are American citizens and have every right to call themselves African Americans, including Caucasians from South Africa. These special categories are not necessary; they are divisive and counterproductive, treating the special group as a group that cannot survive without the force of government.

It seems that liberalism is not really freedom; it thrives on divisiveness, separation, and inequality. They use deceptive language, euphemisms, and lies to implement their goals and policies in the name of “democracy” even though we are not a democracy, we are a constitutional republic. But liberals count on their blind followers to be ignorant of history and civics.

Have Americans Lost Their Minds?

The Ship of Fools
"Sadly, too many Americans have lost their collective minds and found their collectivist minds."  - A. J. Cameron

Western Europeans have been watching the vitriolic opposition to President Trump with great personal interest, wondering if Americans have lost their minds. Being the inveterate leftists that they are, even in the face of demographic suicide, they were rooting for a like-minded female socialist who vowed to turn the U.S. into the European basket case model of failed multiculturalism and diversity, flooding their countries with more and more Islamists in order to forever change the western culture into a Caliphate. The MSM reported ad litteram the same Teleprompter talking points, that she was the most experienced statesman of the two. No mention of her corruption or scandals, just a constant digging for fabricated dirt on then candidate Trump.

Eastern Europeans thought Americans have lost their minds, afflicted by the progressivist, anti-American malaise, having mounted ever-escalating mob violence and anarchic opposition to the Trump presidency, funded, flamed, and organized by rich billionaires, Hollywood stars, crony capitalists, academia, and the main street media.  The black-clad and masked rioters have been beating up anybody who does not share their twisted view of the world, silencing any opposition on America’s campuses, especially at Berkeley.

No Eastern European can understand why the former bastion of progress, the shiny city on the hill, the America of Europe’s hopes and dreams, has suddenly decided to cut its own healthy veins, throbbing with wealthy blood, just to watch the patient die an untimely death.

How did patriotic Americans manage to send the Marxist brainwashed of America into a frenzy of daily protests and vitriolic talk in the MSM, Hollywood, and other halls of power, hunting down mercilessly President Trump, his family, and anyone who works for him, or who supports him? Which masters are these anti-American “global citizens” serving and why? Are they tired of their abundant lifestyle, of their civilization, of their success, and want to throw it all away for the utopian promise of failed Marxism and to the 7th century denizens of Islamic theocracy in the name of insane tolerance and diversity?

Sane Americans and Europeans do not understand why Cultural Marxists engage in cultural and historical vandalism in all countries in which they advocate for suicidal diversity and multiculturalism.

The Democrat Party Marxists are still looking for ways to invalidate the presidential election even though Trump had much more electoral votes than his opponent who allegedly had more popular votes coming from illegal alien voters.

The entire “civil society,” meaning the united leftist agitators around the globe, was incensed when President Trump dared to mention the Islamist attack in Sweden and the religionists of peace who burned down businesses and private property the night before, as shown on Fox News. For some reason, suicidal European bureaucrats are burying the truth, the violence, the rapes, and the destruction of their countries in order not to offend the Muslims.

It will be interesting to watch what will happen with the vote in France this weekend, a vote that will decide if France is determined to survive as a western civilized nation or to continue on the path of multiculturalist self-destruction.  Marie Le Pen promises to end Islamist refugee migration.

The EU bureaucrats joined the protest chorus over President Trump’s “inhumane and xenophobic” fence on the border with Mexico. I suppose the fences erected between EU nations and other countries around the globe, including Mexico’s wall with its borders, Belize and Guatemala, are more “humane?” India shares its border with Pakistan; it is lit by 150,000 floodlights which give off so much light that it is visible from space as an orange glowing line.

The elite globalists are exporting “democracy” around the third world through wars and forced U.N. policies disguised as Sustainable Development to allegedly save the planet from anthropogenic global warming/climate change. The climate change industry and its sycophant lobby have become very powerful since it is worth now trillions of dollars of easy money. It is nothing but exploitation of the poor and of the middle class using environmentalism as a weapon.  As Hans-Hermann Hoppe said, “Democracy has nothing to do with freedom. Democracy is a soft variant of communism, and rarely in the history of ideas has it been taken for anything else.”

Multinationals and non-government organizations (NGOs) have so much money at stake; they are more powerful and wealthier than most countries.  They are at the forefront of the fight against President Trump’s administration and his nationalist policies. They are instrumental in passing treaties like TPP, NAFTA, and laws that are anti-American, do not benefit the American taxpayers, and represent solely the interests of the elite billionaires around the globe.

Multinational corporations and their interests had and still have an important role in the evolution of the economic, social, and political climate around the globe. United Nations, technocrats, and corrupt politicians are the instruments of implementation of all globalist policies and treaties that will eventually eliminate all borders and create a global hodge-podge of billions of people without any national identity, migrating around the globe, and controlled by the globalist elites through settlements, food or lack thereof, water, land, and medical help.

The fight of a potential WWIII will be the fight to install the new world order through the following:

-          Uniform culture

-          Uniform law

-          Mixing nationalities and races

-          Destruction of national pride

-          Destruction of borders

-          Weakening of states until they are no longer relevant

-          Destruction of the family

-          Destruction of religion

-          One world authority under U.N.

-          Total control and supervision of the individual through technology

-          One single currency

-          One single army

If we consider the percentage of Americans who have bought into this globalist agenda blindly and are trying to replace Americanism with Cultural Marxism and Islamo-fascism, we can perhaps answer my question with a definitive yes - Americans have lost their collective minds.

U.N. Planned International Flood of Migrants

In case you were wondering about the planned invasion of Europe and other developed nations, including the United States, wonder no more. Today, The International Organization for Migration, a United Nations Migration Agency, funded partially and generously with your taxpayer dollars for 65 years, is holding an International Dialogue on Migration in New York, on April 18-19, with the theme, “Strengthening International Cooperation on and Governance of Migration towards the Adoption of a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration in 2018.”

I highlighted the words “regular, governance, Global Compact” to illustrate that this vaunted meeting of third world tin pot dictatorships aims to establish and control the global no-borders policy through an on-going flood of migrants to the west, destroying sovereignty and diluting nationality and citizenship. It is not about protecting migrants temporarily from tribal wars and conflict, it is about resettlement of huge populations and forcing multi-culturalism on those countries that resist and wish to maintain their “borders, language, and culture.”

There are millions of refugees around the world who are fleeing conflict in their nations and they must be helped in order to return them safely when the conflict is over. But the European invasion of mostly military age men from the Middle East contains only about 10 percent Syrians who are fleeing the seven-year civil war in Syria, the rest are economic opportunists on a “Hijrah” conquest in the senescent Europe, fast replaced by a fertile Muslim population.

U.N. plans to govern migration through a global compact, a sort of constitution for the rights of everyone to move across national borders unimpeded in another step towards spreading the wealth of a globalist commonwealth ruled by the few billionaire elites and their well-funded “civil society” lapdogs.

They are not shy or hiding the fact that their conference and efforts are part of U.N.’s Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, the very Agenda the MSM keeps telling us that does not exist and those reporting on it are conspiracy theorists:

“It is an opportunity for States and all relevant migration actors to frame the core objectives for the global compact, and ground it in the existing normative structures and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”

Seeing this global migration as a human right, “the IOM Director General William Lacy Swing said in opening remarks today, “The Global Compact presents a historical opportunity to achieve a world in which migrants move as a matter of genuine choice rather than a necessity; a world of opportunity to migrate through safe, orderly, and regular channels; and a world in which migration is well governed and is able to act as a positive force for individuals, societies, and the States.”

If you want to keep your country and borders safe from unvetted invasion, you want to limit the number of economic refugees and illegals flooding your country, causing violence, rapes, and murders, too bad; the United Nations will override your President who has promised a check on unvetted refugees and a wall on the southern border. The almighty United Nations bureaucrats from New York will override him and the American people’s wishes.

The “needs, capacities, and contributions of migrants” will supersede your national needs because their safety, dignity, and human rights are more important than yours.

The four core elements of this compact, as presented by Ambassador Swing are:

1.      Protecting the rights of migrants

2.      Facilitating safe, orderly, and regular migration

3.      Reducing the incidence and impacts of forced and irregular migration

4.      Addressing mobility consequences of natural and human-induced disasters

Louise Arbour, the Secretary General’s Special Representative for International Migration, pointed out that “It is up to all of us to embrace human mobility, and recognize that good migration governance requires a commitment to genuine cooperation. People in transit and destination countries should not be made to look at migrants as burdens, or even worse as threats to themselves or their way of life.”

Perhaps Louise Arbour should pay close attention to the mayhem and violence caused by Angela Merkel’s flood of “rapefugees” in Europe who have destroyed cities and entire areas, raping, threatening, destroying property, harming the local population, and altering their way of life forever, while politicians and the main stream media are ignoring reality and covering up the often savage violence.

Arbour said, “Instead, we need collectively to strengthen the narrative – one which has the virtue of truth – that recognizes human mobility and diversity as a contribution to evolving societies and strong economies.”

The U.N. bureaucrats are not explaining why the male refugees cannot stay in their own countries, fight their tribal wars, end them with a lasting peace, and make their societies evolve and economies strong?

I am not sure on what virtual reality realm Louise Arbour’s version of truth resides, but the lying narrative keeps pushing diversity as a contributing factor of society and strong economies when in reality these migrants become wards of welfare as soon as they enter any country they plan to occupy and they never intend to work. Diversity and multiculturalism in Europe have proven to be utter failures; society has devolved into basket cases of areas that the police avoid at all costs.

As listed by IOM, the conference will be addressed by representatives of “governments, civil society, academia, and the private sector.” Among the speakers are:

-          Amina J. Mohammed, U.N. Deputy Secretary General

-          Peter Thomson, President of the U.N. General Assembly

-          Louise Arbour,  Secretary General ‘s Special Representative for International Migration

-          Ahmed Hussein, Refugees and Citizenship of Canada

-          Permanent Representatives of Switzerland and Mexico

This conference will be followed by the second Global Compact on Migration which will take place on July 18-19 in Geneva, “culminating in the stocktaking preparatory meeting in Mexico in December.”

The United Nations Agenda 2030 of Sustainable Development is not going away and its goals are relatively close to completion, now to include the forced flood of international migrants around the globe and the obliteration of national borders and sovereignty.

Tom DeWeese Fights for Property Rights

Property owners in Texas have received a temporary reprieve when the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which attempted to grab 90,000 acres of “Texas sovereign land” along the banks of the Red River, stopped the surveys that were ordered by the Obama administration.

According to Breitbart, Tommy Henderson won in August 2015 his 30-year personal battle with the BLM over the acreage his family lost in the federal lawsuit. Now the land his family had owned since 1904 was his again, with full ownership and control.

Breitbart quoted Acting Cadastral Survey Chief Stephen Beyerlein, who wrote on March 29, 2017, “Having reviewed this deposition testimony and other new information, the BLM believes the survey methodology was used in error and may have caused errors in identifying the location of the Gradient Boundary.”

President of the Texas Farm Bureau, Russell Boening, wrote, “We take it very seriously when government decides that private property no longer belongs to those who have purchased, paid taxes, and hold titles to it.”

Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, wrote, “This latest action by the Trump administration protects the property rights of Texans as defined by the U.S. Supreme Court and prevents the federal government from infringing upon Texas’ sovereign borders. It was our contention all along that the BLM’s surveys were conducted improperly and unlawfully. We will vigilantly defend Texas’ border from federal overreach.”

When it comes to property rights issues, Tom DeWeese has been fighting the federal, state, and local overreach for decades. President of the American Policy Center, DeWeese travels around the country giving lectures on the many facets of property rights infringements, one of the many issues deemed unsustainable by the Sustainable Development plans of U.N. Agenda 21 of 1992, now morphed into Agenda 2030.

Local governments are changing and Americans are not paying attention unless it affects them directly. American philosophy is based on individual liberty. At the core of this philosophy is the private ownership of property, of one’s own land. Globalist bureaucrats want to change that.

Tom DeWeese quotes in his speeches an economist from Peru, Hernando de Soto, “In the West, every parcel of land, every building, every piece of equipment, or store of inventory is represented in a property document that is the visible sign of a vast hidden process that connects all these assets to the rest of the economy.”

In his book, The Mystery of Capital, Hernando De Soto argues that it is private property that allowed the West to create such wealth and become so successful. Equity in private property was used as seed investment for various ventures.

As Calvin Coolidge said, “Ultimately, property rights and personal rights are the same thing.” The Nevadan Rancher Wayne Hage, who first stood up to BLM and fought them to his last day, said, “If you don’t have the right to own and control property, then you are property.”

But, as John Adams said, “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.” That is why people are fighting the government at all levels to maintain and control their land.

In 1976, the Report from U.N.’s Habitat 1 Conference said, “Land – cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principle instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice.”

Property rights are important elements of Agenda 21, a 40-chapter document signed in Rio in 1992 by 178 countries. Agenda 21 is a “comprehensive blue print for reorganizing human society” around the three Es:

1.      Economics (private public partnerships, eminent domain)

2.      Ethics (social justice, environmental justice, gender justice, racial justice)

3.      Environment (the excuse for it all)

Saving the environment from human activity (the anthropogenic global warming debacle now morphed into the climate change industry) is the given excuse for all of the globalist control of every facet of human life, including ownership of private property. But, as H. L. Mencken said, “A plan to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.”

The American Planning Association pushes the Agenda 21 goals in their planning groups, calling them a comprehensive blue print, but denies that Agenda 21 exists, said DeWeese.

The United Nations bureaucrats want to harmonize the United States into the rest of the global matrix. You should not be able to control your government, they say, government should control you, including your private property.

According to Tom DeWeese, until around the year 2000, governments were proud to advertise their compliance with U.N.’s Agenda 21’s now turned Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development plans, including every agency of our government that rewrote their mission statements to include Sustainability. After 2000, the agenda continued more aggressively but quietly, overtly calling anybody who opposes it or discusses it conspiracy theorists. DeWeese added that politicians vacate auditoriums and are silent any time the discussion turns to U.N. Agenda 21 as if it does not exist. Yet thousands of documents released in the last decades prove otherwise.

U.N.’s Biodiversity Assessment Report declared the following not sustainable: “ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paved and tarred roads, logging activities, reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.”

Tom DeWeese is the author of Erase. Richard Viguerie said, “Tom DeWeese’s Erase presents a fictional path through a dystopian future. However, in Erase every single policy presented in the book, from the use of technology to change our culture; to the use of the public school classrooms to eliminate true knowledge; to the destruction of Christianity in a drive to meld all religions into one powerful tool for government, is all true and happening at this very moment.”

DeWeese is working on a new book, Property Rights Matter, “covering the issues and offering non-governmental solutions to using property ownership as a means to build wealth and freedom, from the inner city to the western ranges.”

When completed, he plans to launch a “Property Right Network, made up of activists and groups across the nation with the goal of making property rights a major issue for upcoming campaigns and to create a fighting force against Sustainable Development policies. DeWeese “fully believes that if we can protect property rights then we can stop Agenda 21/2030.”

Talking about how property rights affect the inner city, DeWeese wants to “build small businesses against the Smart Growth policies that have displaced ethnic neighborhoods.”

The American Planning Association admitted in a Special Report that Smart Growth does not work. “The current planning policy strategies for land use and transportation have virtually no impact on the major long term increases in resource and energy consumption. They generally tend to increase costs and reduce economic competitiveness… In many cases, the socioeconomic consequences of less housing choice, crowding, and congestion may outweigh the very modest CO2 reduction benefits.”

Yet all cities continue the Smart Growth/Green Growth planning and developing of bike paths, of stack and pack housing with mixed use, tiny apartments with no parking and elevators, of tiny alley or RV style diminutive homes in which the owner must constantly assemble and disassemble furniture in order to live in it, all located five-minute walk or bike from work, school, shopping, and play, a very attractive proposition for single young people who cannot afford a mortgage or do not desire to set roots and have a family.

“What we’re trying to do is see equity of public space. When you build your streets for cars, you’re actually building in the expectation that people are going to have cars.” This communist type thinking has kept for decades millions of people living in the Soviet communist satellite nations, close to the areas where they were born, their mobility highly restricted to a few-mile radius, at the mercy of public transportation, buses, rail, and trams.

The ideal communist city, as described by the Soviet architect Alexei Gutnov, was very much like the ideal Agenda 21 envisioned urban areas:

“The chaotic growth of cities will be replaced by a dynamic system of urban settlement. The region is formed by the economic inter-dependence of its development, from the industrial complex to the industrial area and industrial region. The region has a single system of transportation, a centralized administration, and a united system of education and research.” The U.N.’s various Agenda 21/2030 documents and conferences talk about human settlements.

Local and state planning group, planning departments and elected officials deny any connection of their plans to international programs, that there are any concerted efforts to install the mandates of U.N.’s Agenda 21/2030. But there are three main plans of attack:

1.      Destroy private property ownership and control
       2.      Impose regional councils through regionalism and thus take government away from the  people

3.      Support the entire plan with federal grant money which is hard to turn away, especially in areas strapped for revenue

The U.N. Commission on Global Governance talks about regionalism. “Regionalism must precede globalism. We foresee a seamless system of governance from local communities, individual states, regional unions and up through to the United Nations itself.” All the regional plans that have popped up around the world, Heartland 2030, Smart Growth 2030, are identical in scope, are run by NGOs who have applied for the grants, and have one thing in common, none of them are driven by locals.

The globalist planners and their local representatives keep telling us what they are going to do but Americans are no paying attention.

Ted Trainer, the author of Transition to a Sustainable and Just World, wrote, “Nothing of lasting significance will be achieved unless it is clearly understood that our efforts in these local initiatives are the first steps to the eventual replacement of the present society by one which is not driven by market forces, profits, competition, growth or affluence.”

Harvey Ruvin, the Vice Chair of ICLEI stated, “Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” Thomas Lovejoy, science advisor to the Department of Interior said, “(We) will map the whole nation – determine development for the whole country, and regulate it all.”

Joe Hindman, a historian, suggested in 1966 that “The strategy is to make property ownership so unbearable by harassment through building inspections, remodeling orders, fines and jailings that owners give up in despair and sell to land developers at cut-rate prices. Punitive municipal codes are the weapons in the warfare.”

According to DeWeese, when Dave Foreman dreamed up the scheme for the Wildlands Project in 1983, he said, “It is not enough to preserve the roadless, undeveloped country remaining. We must recreate wilderness in large regions: move out the cars and civilized people, dismantle the roads and dams, reclaim the plowed lands and clear cuts, -- and reintroduce extirpated species.” So people living in the country will be stripped of their lands and herded into the cities, the same way the Soviets had herded villagers into the cities, bulldozed their homes for agriculture, for the “collective good,” and crowded them all into concrete high rise apartments the size of an average American hotel room. That is why the Bundys fought back.

We are told ad nauseam that Agenda 21 is just a suggestion, without any enforcement capabilities. How did every agency of the federal, state, and local government develop a comprehensive development plan exactly as mandated by U.N. Agenda 21?

Tom DeWeese explains how it became “the law of the land:”

After the Rio conference in 1992, when U.N. Agenda 21 was signed by President George H.W. Bush, thousands of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) went to Congress, through HUD, EPA, DOT, DOE, and helped them create grant programs with strings attached that were the implementation of Agenda 21. Then they went to state legislators to pass laws that every community had to have a comprehensive development plan. As local officials scratched their heads as to what comprehensive development plans were, they were presented by the same NGOs with a box, with the whole plan and the grant money, local supervisors did not have to do anything, they only had to sign. And so Agenda 21 became the “law of the land.”

The rules imposed were strict building codes, punitive municipal codes, septic tank codes, plumbing codes, electric codes, bike lanes, high rise apartments with no parking lots, light rail trains, public transportation, HOV restricted lanes, formerly public roads given to developers who turned them into expensive toll roads, all paid by taxpayer dollars but without input or vote from the taxpayers. Once the local officials took the grant money on behalf of the community which was very often totally ignorant of what was going on or their objections ignored, they had to accept the restrictions. 

DeWeese describes the new government language of comprehensive development plans used to restrict and destroy property rights:  wetlands, conservation easements, watersheds, view sheds, rails to trail, biosphere reserves, green ways, partnerships, preservation, stakeholders, land use, environmental protection, diversity, visioning, open space, heritage area.

The stakeholder councils, people who do not live in your community, dictate your future according to the mandates of U.N. Agenda 21/2030. Your locally elected officials just rubber stamp what these NGOs envision for you and your children, for generations to come, because you are too stupid to be entrusted with your own future, your freedoms must be curtailed for the sake of the planet. All these restrictions are imposed on you by the elite globalists while they live how they want and wherever they want, with total disregard for their carbon footprint because they are “civil society.”
The community councils that you have not elected, self-appointed bureaucrats, appointed hacks armed with their own political agenda, have turned your community into a “little Soviet society.” You no longer have a representative government. You are forced to have smart meters on your homes, on your gas lines, on your HVACs; the councils control what you do on your property, if you collect rain water, snow melt, your tree and bush pruning or planting, the paint color scheme of your home, the height of your grass, what you can and cannot grow in your own back yard, and many other restrictions.

NGOs and regional councils know the right way to live and how to govern in place of locally elected officials. They have become a shadow government. Regional councils and planners answer to NO ONE. Americans are living the wrong way and must be forced to live the way the regional planners envision for them.

NGOs establish “the strategic vision to insure proper growth,” transportation, housing, jobs, land use, education, property, housing, and health care. “Under Sustainable Health Care, all the provisions of Obamacare are found,” said DeWeese. When the regional planners draw a boundary around your city, everything built outside of it becomes "urban sprawl," a dirty word for city planners. But to you and me, it is our homes; it is where we want to live, added DeWeese.

Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, described what is truly happening to every facet of our lives.
“What is occurring here, not just in this (conference), but in the whole climate change process, is the complete transformation of the economic structure of the world. This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution.”

To sum it up, you are no longer free; you are now a vassal to the United Nations tin pot bureaucrats who are subjugating your freedoms and sovereignty with your own taxpayer dollars and the dictates of Sustainable Development.
