Agenda 21: How progressives are using deception to destroy liberty


Fri, Apr 4th, 2014
Posted in All Commentary

Those familiar with my articles know I have been warning the folks about the “noose of government dependence” that is being tightened slowly but surely around our collective necks.

The radical left and secular progressives want you to think the American Dream is dead. They want to dismiss as mere myth the notion that a person of meager means and humble background can become educated and successful without intervention by the Federal Government. (Remember the quote by Mr. Obama to successful business owners: “ You didn’t build that!! You had government help to build that!”) They want us to think that success is impossible without a leg up from big government.

They want to sell you the idea that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are old outdated documents that are no longer valid in our “ modern society”. As proponents of Agenda 21, they don’t want you to know that wealth creation and liberty are impossible without legally protected private property. Unless we as citizens are entitled by law to have private property, WHAT LIBERTIES CAN EXIST? Our schools no longer teach this concept due to the insidious influence of Agenda 21, but our Founding Fathers were well aware of it.

James Madison, one of our most eloquent founders, proved his grasp of the concept when he wrote: “Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well as that which lies in the various rights of individuals…this being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures, to every man, whichever is his own.” Seems reasonable. This is America, right? Government entities exist to protect our lives and property, correct? Well folks, if the radical left and secular progressives get their way, you can kiss your property rights goodbye FOREVER!!

Allow me to explain. U N Agenda 21 got started in the U.N. as the brainchild of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature [IUCN ]. It is a 40 chapter document designed to exert ABSOLUTE CONTROL OVER EVERY IMAGINABLE HUMAN ACTIVITY. Why, then, have the rank and file of citizens never heard of it?

That’s simple to answer, folks: Since it can’t be fully implemented without the total destruction of private property rights, the radical left and secular progressives DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW!!

The U.N. is up to its neck in the implementation of Agenda 21 along with 133 nations including, unfortunately, the USA. A U.N. document from the Habitat I conference way back in 1976 dovetails perfectly with the goals of Agenda 21: “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 and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole. Public control of land use is therefore indispensable.” (Those of you who read Bryan Van Gorp’s March 3 commentary in Fillmore County Journal will find that quote eerily familiar.) According to Micheal Coffman, PhD., in the winter 2013 issue of Range magazine, the U.N. and Agenda 21ers have it backwards. “Like so many noble schemes socialists and progressives implement to help the poor or save the environment,” Coffman says,” their policies accomplish exactly the opposite. European green energy, another Agenda 21 folly, has turned into a disaster and shown that green policies were disconnected from reality from the start’’. More on that later.

Time and space limitations prevent me from going through Agenda 21 chapter and verse, but I strongly urge all to get to your computers and learn as much as you can about its potential to destroy personal liberty in the USA. One aspect I will discuss with you today that is so important to all of us is Green Energy.

The bloodcurdling battle cry of the radical environmentalists is “EVIL CARBON DIOXIDE”!! Ian Pilmer, Australian geologist and professor of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne, had this to say regarding carbon emissions after the volcanic eruption in Iceland.

“The volcano has in just four days negated every single effort you have made in the past 5 years to control CO2…All of you, worldwide! And there are over 200 active volcanoes spewing out CO2 and other green house gasses EVERY DAY!!” He adds that the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo [Philippines, 1991] emitted more greenhouse gasses than the entire human race in all its years of existence.

That’s the bad news. The good news is the professor states CO2 in the atmosphere has little or no effect on global temperatures and the global temperature has actually dropped by 0.7 degrees in the past century. What does the professor have to say about the whopping CARBON TAX or the proposed EMMISSION TRADING LEGISLATION as proposed by progressives and radical greenies?

“These whopping new taxes… imposed on you, will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer. It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure!”

So where are we on Green Energy? The concept is wonderful and it has been around for a very long time. One of the cleanest and most efficient is hydroelectric. Windmills have pumped trillions of gallons of water and are still doing so. We can learn something from that operation that is crucial to the success of any green energy initiative: storage of the product.

Before you ever throw the pump on a windmill in gear, there’s something you must have; a large cistern. I have two on my property that still hold water. You must have the cistern to store the water for the times the wind doesn’t blow, which is all too often.

I believe the main thing limiting the success of green energy is we don’t have the technology to store electricity. No “cistern”. Let’s take a look at what happened in Europe, best represented by Germany and England.[Source: Range magazine fall 2013]

Germany closed all its nuclear plants in 2011 and is committed to produce 35 percent of its electricity from green energy by 2020. It has spent more than 194 billion dollars, mostly on solar power, in the last 10 years. According to one of the leading newspapers in the country, Der Spiegel, Solar farm operators and private citizens collected over 10 billion in subsidies in 2011 but generated only 3 percent of the power, and that at unpredictable times. It gets worse. With no storage options, excess energy has to be destroyed at substantial cost. According to Der Spiegel, solar power in Germany simply does not work economically. Energy is so expensive in Germany now that 600,000 low income families per year are having their power shut off because they are unable to pay their bills. And get this: the shortage is so acute that 23 coal fired generation plants are being constructed to make up the shortfall!

Unlike relatively sunny Germany, gloomy U.K. put its faith in wind power. At this time over 3,000 wind towers have been erected in the U.K. that are able to generate an anemic 5 percent of power needs. So far green wind has been a dismal failure with a windless period during a cold spell in 2010 causing a great deal of suffering for British citizens. Costs have been comparable to the astronomic rates in Germany, with industrial power costing about triple that of the USA. [Source: EnergyFacts.org] In summation, the economy of the entire European Union is teetering on the brink of disaster because of ill conceived green energy policy.

Now a reading assignment. If you have not read Dr. Bryan Van Gorp’s commentary in the March 3 issue of the FCJ, please do so. If you already read it, re-read it carefully and look for the undeniable connection to Agenda 21. Take special note of the reference to the evil capitalist system and the need for an international system of government that controls all resources. (In other words, goodbye private property!!) Two kids are plenty, one or none would be better. Never mind what happened in Europe with their failed green energy efforts. Better to spend ourselves into complete oblivion than produce another watt of electricity with evil coal or natural gas.

Here’s where it’s at folks. We have important choices to make this fall. We should educate ourselves about the candidates and elect people with good conservation ethics. We must use good, proven methods to utilize our natural resources in a safe, responsible manner. We have renewable resources that can help us greatly. Let’s tell our leaders we want to develop a practical energy storage system before we go down the same disastrous path as Europe.

Above all, we must send the strongest possible message to our leaders that we reject Agenda 21 and all its phony, failed, ridiculous ideology. They say we can’t succeed without “Big Brother”. Millions of Americans have proved them wrong since our brave founders created the greatest nation in the history of the world… A nation where we are free to succeed and free also to fail. A nation where our government exists to protect our property, not steal it from us in the name of the common good.
