“This is no longer just a ‘surveillance state.’  We are on the fast track to a police state.” -Miles Kinard, interview with the Spingola Files, Dec. 2012

We are very excited to introduce you to Miles Kinard, researcher and author of the magazine exposé, American Stasi: Fusion Centers and Domestic Spying.

What is a Fusion Center?

The principal role of the fusion center is to compile, analyze, and disseminate criminal/terrorist information and intelligence and other information (including, but not limited to, threat, public safety, law enforcement, public health, social services, and public works) to support efforts to anticipate, identify, prevent, and/or monitor criminal/terrorist activity.   http://www.scribd.com/doc/19251638/Fusion-Center-Guidelines-Law-Enforcement

I jumped on Mr. Kinard’s work on fusion centers last year when it was released and found his writing on the subject to be extremely lucid and his research, impeccable.  You can get it for a song and instant download at Amazon.com

http://www.amazon.com/American-Stasi-Centers-Domesitc-ebook/dp/B006YZQFL8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1327104356&sr=8-1

Miles Kinard’s work explores these secretive 9/11 domestic intelligence units that are considered key by the Department of Homeland Security in its quest to know everything about everybody all the time.

There is at least one of these relatively new intelligence centers located in every state (74 78 total) and precious little attention has been given to them by the mainstream media.

Secrecy, the waste of taxpayer dollars and especially the potential civil liberties violations were highlighted by Kinard’s work.  All of this and more was subsequently confirmed by a two-year bipartisan investigation by the U. S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations which released a 107 page report last October.

Tonight we will get a chance to talk to Miles about the state fusion centers as part of what he refers to as the “Surveillance Industrial Complex” in general and discuss the implications of these state-based (but federally controlled) spy centers that he identified in his exposé .

What Facial Recognition Technology Means for Privacy and Civil Liberties 

The Militarization of U.S. Domestic Policing

 Abigail R. Hall and Christopher J. Coyne
Abstract
This paper develops the political economy of the militarization of domestic policing.
We analyze the mechanisms through which the “protective state”—where the government utilizes its monopoly on force to protect citizens’ rights—devolves into a “predatory state” which undermines the rights of the populace. We apply our theory to the U.S.,where we trace the(failed) historical attempts to establish constraints nto separate the military functions and policing functions of government.
In doing so we emphasize the role of crises in the form of perpetual wars—the “War on Drugs” and the “War on Terror”—in the accelerated militarization of domestic policing.

Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America.

Larry Pratt has been Executive Director of Gun Owners of America for over 30 years.  The GOA is a national membership organization of 300,000 Americans dedicated to promoting their Second Amendment freedom to keep and bear arms. Congressman Ron Paul describes Gun Owners of America as “The only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington.” 

Website http://gunowners.org/

Larry Pratt is a frequent guest on many national radio and TV programs.  Following the Sandy Hook school tragedy, he made an appearance on CNN with Piers Morgan who took the opportunity to try and demean Mr. Pratt’s views but ended up sparking outrage instead.  Tonight we will talk with Mr. Pratt about the incident and more importantly, what Second Amendment advocates should do to protect their rights in the wake of gun control hysteria and potential legislation intended to curtail our Second Amendment rights.

OK. Sen. Patrick Anderson

Next up, we are very pleased to be speaking with Oklahoma Sen. Patrick Anderson, Republican Senator from OK District 19 since 2004.  Sen Anderson will be telling us about his bill, SB23, designed to protect Oklahomans from property-rights busting policy based on UN Agenda 21 Sustainable Development.

Sen. Patrick Anderson, R-Enid, said his Senate Bill 23 is based on a bill that was passed by Alabama lawmakers last year and is aimed in part at cutting off state support for the groups pushing limits on property owner rights.

As a farmer, Anderson said he is concerned about the federal government – pushed by the U.N.’s agenda of sustainability – forcing rules on a wide variety of things, including the creation of dust and how land can be used.

“There’s a place for all that, but we also need to make sure we’re not infringing on the property owners’ rights to use their own land,” Anderson said.

The first and best steward of how land should be used is the private owner, he said.

Oklahoma senator’s bill targets controversial U.N. Agenda 21 plan

Joe Wolverton, II

And we are also pleased and honored to have Joe Wolverton, II to give us the heads up on legislation and policies that will effect some of our most cherished legal and natural rights.

Since 2004, Joe Wolverton, II has been a featured contributor to The New American magazine.  He was a practicing constitutional law attorney until 2009 and his articles on the Constitution, states’ rights, the NDAA, drones and surveillance have appeared in national and international publications, including lewrockell.com the Tenth Amendment Center, Infowars, and Business Insider among others.  Joe Wolverton II is a national speaker on constitutional issues and is a professor of American Government.

City of Norman’s Fifth Density Dialog Charade

Kaye Beach

August 14, 2012

I am completely frustrated with the City of Norman’s “community dialog” meetings on density development.  Last night was the fifth meeting.

(You can find out more about the meetings and see some of the materials from the meetings here)

Previous posts on the subject are here and here

We were told in the beginning that the meetings were for the purpose of discovering whether or not Norman residents even wanted high density development.  That question could have been answered in much less that the six scheduled meetings being held but then the planners would not have had the opportunity to manipulate the attendees into agreeing to the sort of development that they have in mind.

I am not opposed to the building of high density housing units.  If there is a market for it and it doesn’t harm the rights of property owners nearby, then why not?  But there is much more going on here than that.

Last night we really got down to the nitty gritty after we were instructed by City Planner Susan Atkinson on exactly what constituted “good design”  Good design, we were told, is three stories, built right up to the sidewalk, retail on the bottom, residential on top, meager parking, hidden in the back.  Good design means wide sidewalks and narrow streets.  Why?

I’ll tell you why.  Because public transportation REQUIRES high density development,( located right  next to the tracks) that discourages the use of automobiles.    The planners aim to take away your choices so that their goals are met.


The city is working on what is called Transit Oriented Development only they will not simply tell you that because if they did and we understood what they were really up to, many of us would not agree to it.

(Read the Central Oklahoma Transit Supportive Guidebook)

Transit Oriented Development  (also called New Urbanism or Smart Growth) calls for high density mixed use developments. link

Today, TOD means building high density projects at transit stops, such as a light rail stations. Providing places to live, work, and shop within close distance of a rail station helps drive ridership on the transit system. http://iqc.ou.edu/2011/09/28/urban-design-in-territorial-oklahoma/

Transit-Oriented Development — moderate- to high-density, mixed-use neighborhoods concentrated at transit stops and designed to maximize access to and use of public transportation. http://www.epa.gov/dced/codeexamples.htm

So, who really wants transit oriented development?  The federal government does.  And ACOG wants it because federal transportation dollars are contingent upon it.  The city wants transit oriented development because it is part of ACOG’s regional transportation plan.

Since when does the federal government dictate city planning?  The answer is they can’t, not directly anyways but by using the carrot and the stick method the federal government is doing it and ACOG and our city council rather than standing up to this travesty and letting the good people of Oklahoma who value their sovereignty and local control are working right along with them.  And this, we will be told, is what WE want.  It is OUR plan.

Here is just one example of new federal initiatives that have completely changed the game.

Obama Administration Proposes Major Public Transportation Policy Shift
to Highlight Livability
Changes Include Economic Development and Environmental Benefits

In a dramatic change from existing policy, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood today proposed that new funding guidelines for major transit projects be based on livability issues such as economic development opportunities and environmental benefits, in addition to cost and time saved, which are currently the primary criteria.

In remarks at the Transportation Research Board annual meeting, the Secretary announced the Obama Administration’s plans to change how projects are selected to receive federal financial assistance in the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) New Starts and Small Starts programs.

“Our new policy for selecting major transit projects will work to promote livability rather than hinder it,” said Secretary LaHood. “We want to base our decisions on how much transit helps the environment, how much it improves development opportunities and how it makes our communities better places to live.” http://www.dot.gov/affairs/2009/fta0110.htm

If you are wondering what these “livability principles” are, you can click here to read them.

In an March 2012 ACOG transportation  meeting, Commissioner Mark Sharpton goes on record calling out the ‘Livability Principles” for what they are and his reaction to the suggestion of incorporating them into our region-wide transportation policies brought forth an entirely appropriate response form this red-blooded American;

You know, I actually feel for the city council and even ACOG.  They are between a rock and a hard place for sure.  But you know what?  I am more concerned about the people of this great state and what the future will look like for us and our children if this is allowed to continue.

We don’t get to vote for those who presume to represent us on ACOG (which is just one of a number of problems with the whole arrangement) but we DO vote for our city council members still even though they often appear to be being led by the nose by their staff.  They have to stand up for us or pay the price at the ballot box.  We should insist that our City Council put an end to this farce!

I am sending a copy of this post to my councilman.  If you have concerns, you should contact yours as well. You can find their contact info here

They said they just wanted to know if we want higher density development.  How about NO?!

The residents of Norman should know that the City cannot accomplish their hidden goals without our approval.  Do you think that they would bother to mess with all of these meetings to manipulate us into agreeing if they didn’t have to?

“Because the projects are routinely deemed illegal under local zoning laws and go against most conventional development practices, the new urbanists have pioneered new approval techniques (notably the town planning charrette).” Link

I have much more to say about this charade (I mean charrette!) the City is putting us through but for now I will leave you with this incredibly thoughtful speech made by Lolita Buckner Inniss, J.D., L.L.M. Associate Professor of Law, Cleveland-Marshall School of Law,  Cleveland State University, Cleveland, Ohio in 2008.

. . .what I’m going to be offering here is a critique of New Urbanism in general and “form-based code” in particular and as a tool of New Urbanism. I also want to talk about the fact that form-based code, while it’s often touted as being more flexible than zoning and is a great method to overcome a number of the problems that we see in our cities—urban decay, segregation, economic downturns, what I began to see, however, particularly as I taught the first year on property, is that form-based code is not generally doing what advocates said.

. . .First and foremost, it tries to do by design what was ultimately spontaneous. What it comes down to, and I’ll talk about this in more detail, is that in the city as we have known it and have come to understand it in the United States, and certainly also in Europe, city growth was spontaneous growth. I think it’s problematic from the outset to assume that you can do now by design what it has taken us one hundred years to do in our urban areas. I think you would have to challenge any plan that purports to design something that didn’t come about by design. So that’s one of the first problems I’ve had with it.

. . .

Next, New Urbanism. As I’ll talk about in a few moments, when you talk about form-based code, you’re really talking about one of the principal tools of what’s called the new urbanism, sort of a way of getting back to the “old urbanism” and the old city. What I’ll discuss is the fact that the new urbanism, like the old urbanism—that’s deeply contested. The city that you and I may remember may be very different than the city that somebody else remembered. So again it’s problematic when someone purports to put together a plan that’s supposed to take us back to the old urbanism. We all remember and lived in different types of cities, and so there’s no way that we’re going to design something that reflects a vision. There is no single vision. There are multiple visions that could never begin to be incorporated in any one single vision, So that’s another problem.

Finally, the charette process, as Carol mentioned, relies on the “community” in order to sort of pull together form-based code plans. All too often it doesn’t work out as claimed, which is one of the things I talk about in my essay where I discuss the rebuilding of New Orleans that’s the basis for this talk. That’s a wonderful example of what happens when you claim that the community is going to be represented. All too often, form-based code plans end up representing the elites who put them together, who bring in the experts, who all too often monopolize the talk that’s going on. And it’s a wonderful way for a very, very small strand of people in the community to have their views represented as “what everybody wants.” All too often, that’s simply not the case.

Oklahoma HD 20 Candidate Bobby Cleveland’s Actions Speak Louder Than His Words

Kaye Beach

**Update June 23, 2012.  I am being told that Mr. Cleveland denies any connection with the NLC.  I find it hard to believe that his name repeatedly appears as a member of the National League of Cities’ Transportation and Infrastructure & Services Policy Committee on their 2010/2011 final policy and deliberation documents as well as the NLC’s website (all amply documented below) without any knowledge or approval by Mr. Cleveland.  I have investigated the procedures for becoming a member and clearly the selection process for members is a proactive one.  For example;

I am awaiting a call from Mr. Cleveland to explain his actual role in the NLC Policy and Advocacy committee and his stance on the positions advocated by the NLC.  When that happens, I will immediately report the outcome on this blog.**

June 21, 2012

Bobby Cleveland claims he is a conservative and a “constitutionist.”  He wants voters to believe that will take a stand against Agenda 21 however his track record proves otherwise.  Bobby Cleveland, in cahoots with national and local organizations,  has advocated for a number of things that are neither constitutional nor conservative.

For example, as a member of the National Municipal League’s Transportation and Infrastructure & Services Policy in 2010,  Cleveland promoted (among other things);

  • Red Light spy cameras
  • The 3 e’s of Sustainable Development
  • Federal incentives for random warrant less roadside drug and alcohol checks
  • Allowing federal and state governments to issue tax-exempt or tax-credit bonds

Bobby Cleveland is running on a platform he calls the ‘Bob Cleveland 3 C’s’

“Christian, Conservative and Constitutionist”

Looking at his membership with two organizations, The National League of Cities and ACOG, the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments, one might reasonably ask if a more accurate platform for Bobby Cleveland might be the Three E’s;

Economy, Environment and Equity

The three E’s of Sustainable Development

 

Equity (what could be wrong with that?!)

Equity means;

“individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective” –Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chair of the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), and Clerk of the Circuit and County Court in Miami-Dade County, Florida

Both organizations, ACOG and the NLC, openly advocate for the UN’s model of  Sustainable Development (not the more sensible US model which promotes good stewardship of our natural resources) which runs contrary to our system of government.

Cleveland has been a member of ACOGS INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION POLICY COMMITTEE (ITPC) since at least March of 2008 and is also a member of ACOG’s Board of Directors.

Now, If Bobby Cleveland was running on a platform of Humanist, Progressive and Globalist, I probably wouldn’t have said anything.  If he had just kept it to ‘Republican’, I could have probably contained myself.  But at recent campaigning events he has actually pitched himself as the “anti-Agenda 21” candidate.

This is just asking too much.  Do the facts matter?

Let’s look at the facts beginning with the National League of Cities.

The National League of Cities, in particular, worked hand in glove with ICLEI to bring the United Nation’s Agenda 21 policy home to the United States. 

The NLC and ICLEI are both well known for their role in bringing socialist planning techniques to our communities.

This organization has been working alongside of ICLEI since the 90′s to inject the principles of the UN’s Agenda for the 21st Century into government policy on the local level.

CITIES FOR CLIMATE PROTECTION

The Urban CO2 Reduction Project

February 15, 1993

ICLEI plans to undertake a de-centralized campaign that seeks to generate enthusiasm and commitment among national and sub-national municipal associations worldwide. The first step was involving the following national and regional associations as co-sponsors of the aforementioned Summit:

. . .National League of Cities (US)The “world campaign” will initially work closely with the municipal associations that attended the Summit and with whom ICLEI already has close relations, such as the National League of Cities in the US.

http://www.iclei.org/index.php?id=1651

Implementing Agenda 21 ICLEI Acts in Responce to UNCED

The UN’s Agenda 21 held its coming out party in the US in 1994 at the National League of Cities’ Annual conference.

The United States campaign [for the UN’s Agenda 21 Sustainable Development] was introduced in November 1994 at the annual conference of the National League of Cities.

http://www.un-ngls.org/orf/documents/publications.en/agenda21/04.htm

The NLC continues to work closely with ICLEI to bind cities to sustainable development guidelines that do not respect property or individual rights.

ICLEI USA initiated the STAR Community Index–with our partners the National League of Cities, U.S. Green Building Council, and Center American Progress–to hasten the progress of communities toward sustainability. STAR will provide a national, comprehensive rating system for cities to assess their sustainability performance and guide decision-making by connecting economic, environmental, and social concerns. (the 3 e’s) http://www.icleiusa.org/sustainability/star-community-index/sponsor-opportunities/star-sponsor-opportunities

This is the organization Mr. Cleveland has chosen to work with.  He could be forgiven for not knowing the history of the NLC but there is no excuse for supporting the policies of the organization that are at the very least obviously not conservative and at worst subversive to our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The NLC explains the method of selection and the role of members of its Policy and Advocacy Committees;

State municipal leagues appoint the members of the seven policy and advocacy committees, which meet twice each year. At the Congressional City Conference, NLC’s legislative conference, committee members are called upon to advocate for NLC’s legislative priorities on Capitol Hill, as well as help set the policy agenda for the year. At the Congress of Cities, committee members review and approve policy proposals and resolutions. These action items are then forwarded to NLC’s Resolutions Committee and considered at the Annual Business Meeting, also held during the Congress of Cities.” link

Below are the results of the National League of Cities’ Transportation and Infrastructure & Services Policy Chapter that were  approved in 2011 at the NLC’s Congress of Cities.

2011 Transportation Infrastructure & Services Policy Chapter

Highlights;

•Public Private Partnerships

•More stringent seat belt laws

•Red light Spy Cameras

•The 3 e’s of Sustainable Development

•More federal involvement in local planning

•More federal funding for local planning

•Federal standards for local planning efforts Federal funding and incentives for alternative modes of travel such as bikes and pedestrian as well as beautification, landscaping projects and environment retrofitting.

•Federal incentive grant program for random roadside drug and alcohol inspections.

•Congestion pricing

•“NLC urges repeal of Amtrak’s statutory self-sufficiency requirement, since no known passenger rail system operates without government subsidies.”

•NLC supports high-speed rail development

•“NLC further urges the federal government to redefine the responsibility and funding mechanisms for maintaining tracks that carry both freight and national intercity passenger rail traffic.”

•Allowing federal and state governments to issue tax-exempt or tax-credit bonds for financing rail improvements.

Bobby Cleveland is also listed as a member of the  National League of Cities’ Transportation and Infrastructure & Services Policy Committee  in 2012

2012

I have yet to review the latest policy papers or resolutions but here they are;

View the policies and resolutions crafted by and voted on by the Transportation Inrastructure & Services Committee:

2012 Transportation Infrastructure & Services Policy Chapter

2012 Transportation Infrastructure & Services Resolutions

Some problems with the policies that Mr. Cleveland as part of the NLC’s policy committee advocates for is as follows;

Public Private Partnerships.

The problem with public private partnerships is that the government becomes corrupted and no longer represents the taxpayers when it accepts funding from private interests.

Remember, any private stakeholder is in it for the money and when government enters into this partnership,  that means your tax money!   The natural result of public private partnerships is the fleecing of the tax payer and diluted government that is not representing the interests of the people. 

There is nothing conservative or constitutional about public private partnerships.

Then you have Bobby Cleveland advocating for more stringent seat belt laws.  Really?  More nanny state laws regulating private behavior is not very conservative either.

Red Light Cameras

This is a public-private privacy nightmare!  The lure of revenue split between the government and their private partners, the red light companies, has led to instances of shortening the yellow light and less attention on simple and cheap engineering fixes at intersections which study after study has shown to radically reduce the number of red light runners.

Both citizens and public officials all over this country  have been in an uproar trying to get the cameras out of their communities because these type of public-private shenanigans have caused  new safety issues like rear end collisions causing them to lose faith in the cameras originally accepted as safety devices.

And far from simply snapping a picture of the offending driver, red light cameras are video cameras that roll 24 hours a day capturing thousands of innocent motorists’ comings and goings.

Electronic police state policies that diminish safety while lining the pockets of private corporations is not conservative.

Bobby Cleveland advocates for more federal involvement in local planning, more federal funding for local planning and more federal standards for local planning.

With Cleveland in office, we will surely be saying goodbye to state sovereignty!

These stances are certainly NOT conservative! 

 NLC members, including Mr. Cleveland, also actively lobby in D.C. to promote these issues.

According to the NLC;

“Throughout the year, committee members participate in advocacy efforts to influence the federal decision-making process, focusing on actions concerning local governments and communities.”

How could anyone claiming to be a conservative run around DC lobbying for issues like more federal involvement, funding and standards for local planning?

Both ACOG and the NLC advocate for regional governance.

NATIONAL LEAGUE OF CITIESPOLICY AND ADVOCACY COMMITTEE

Regional governance adds yet another layer of government and unelected bureaucrats to bedevil citizens with taxes and regulations.

This is not the Republican form of government that We The People are guaranteed!

The National League of Cities works to promote regional governance across the nation is also a source of vexation for citizens who prefer the more traditional republican form of government that makes our country unique and was formerly the source of our strength.

From the Greater Gaston County Tea Party blogsite;

Looking into the National League of Cities website is enough to send chills down my spine. This is yet another layer of tax deferred grant writing by special interests, corporations, and interference into local government.  I’m guessing Gastonia council joined this to get more grants. I don’t remember voters being asked to join this NLC.  Not to be overly dramatic, but it is “Public Private Partnership” and “regional governance” …all unelected bodies once again…handing out grants for compliance with a “regional” structure that the voters have no say on whatsoever.   Our council applies for and receives grants from “regional” government organizations without consulting voters.  Grants come with strings attached.  Read more

The NLC George Soros and Gun Control

The NLC flexes its muscle to promote gun control promoting resolutions and model policies to cities that ban guns in public places and promote gun registration.  The NLC promotes policy that restricts access to guns and ammunition, supports a ban on all semi-automatic weapons and 30 day waiting periods.

See for yourself-read the NLC Policy and Resolutions Papers http://www.nlc.org/influence-federal-policy/policy-committees/public-safety-crime-prevention

Has Bobby Cleveland gone on record opposing the NLC’s position on gun control?

 ‘Emmy-winning reporter and radio host, Shad Olson, investigates the connection between state Municipal Leagues, the National League of Cities and liberal overlord, George Soros. Advancing antigun, antifamily, anticapitalist policies that cost taxpayers millions of dollars, Shad reveals how the National League of Cities is doing the work of the extreme left in the ‘bottom-up,’ remaking of America.’

The National League of Cities is involved in arguably one of the most effective anti-gun lobbies, advising city leaders, even in conservative states to ban guns in city parks and then doling out expensive legal advise when those policies are deemed unconstitutional” –Shad Olsen

While it is unclear to me exactly what the connections are between George Soros and the NLC,  it is not hard to believe that Soros and the NLC are working in tandem on certain issues.

Some of the best advice I have ever gotten in politics is to never listen to what a politician says, pay attention, I was advised, to what they do.

In future articles, I will be doing exactly that.  Looking at what Bobby Cleveland does rather than what he says.  Specifically, I will show you some of what ACOG has been up to with nary a peep out of our “Anti Agenda 21 candidate”, Bobby Cleveland.

Given his history, what assurance do voters have that if elected to represent HD 20, Mr. Cleveland will legislate in the best interests of his constituents?

Actions- not words is what matters and Oklahoma voters have the right to know the facts so that they can cast their votes accordingly.

Oklahoma Property Owners Bogged Down by FEMA’s Flood Plain Maps

Kaye Beach

June 8, 2012

Last summer I did some looking into the new FEMA flood maps that were causing a lot of trouble and expense for  property owners across the state and nation.

Okla. Water Resources Board/FEMA Flood Map Follies Aug. 24, 2011

Oklahomans Getting Soaked! Tag Teamed by FEMA and OWRB Aug. 30, 2011

Of course this is still going on.  The following article is an editorial about the nonsense going on with FEMA and its new flood maps in Shawnee, OK.  Below that is a very good article about the origins and purpose of FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Planning that is the basis for the floodplain expansion.

This what “sustainability” looks like.

Bureaucrats behaving badly: FEMA flood plain mess in Shawnee

The Oklahoman Editorial | Published: June 4, 2012

IN government, small changes can have big consequences. Take the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s redrawing of flood plain maps. That simple change now threatens to derail economic development efforts and punish many homeowners with increased compliance costs.

Nowhere is that more apparent than in Shawnee. Thanks to the new maps, portions of the hospital and airport are now considered part of a flood plain, and a long-running effort to attract a national chain restaurant may be thwarted. The Shawnee Mission Plaza has been in constant development for 20 years with no problem. But now FEMA demands that officials conduct a new hydrology study for the 152-acre development before an eatery can be added.

That understandably frustrates local officials, who already paid for a hydrology study in 2006. The new study, they note, will provide no new detail, but will cost an extra $50,000 and delay the restaurant project for months, if not derail it.

The Global Safety Cult and the Abolition of Private Property

by William Roberts

Summary:

Chapter Seven of Agenda 21 calls for the establishment of a “culture of safety.” All of Agenda 21, Chapter 7 is the expansion of UN Resolution 44/236 and the foundational material for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA’s) “Multi-Jurisdictional All-Hazard Mitigation Planning” programme that fails to provide safety and destroys liberty.

Here is brief overview of Agenda 21 Sustainable Development

Sustainable Development is the Action plan being used across America and around the world to implement the United Nations Agenda 21 program. Although the movement’s roots are much older, the United Nations, at its 1992 Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, publicly launched the global movement known as Agenda 21. The Secretary General of that ‘Earth Summit Conference, Maurice Strong addressed the gathering and said the following:

“…current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class ‐ involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.”

178 nations were signatories to the 288 page Agenda 21. President George H. W. Bush signed on behalf of the United States. Since Agenda 21 was “soft law” and not a treaty, Congress had no role to perform. Instead, the cabinet agencies of the Executive branch of government were charged with implementing
this ‘global to local’ program.

In 1993, President Bill Clinton established, by executive order, the President’s Council on Sustainable Development. Since Clinton’s order, every cabinet agency has undertaken its role in advancing Agenda 21/Sustainable Development policy in the US.

In summary, Sustainable Development seeks:
• The step by step abolition of private property, primarily through the
implementation of the Wildlands Project and Smart Growth.
• Education of youth to prepare them for global citizenship.
• Control and ultimate reduction of human population.

Sustainable Developers rally around the concepts within their “three E’s” symbol. The three E’s are Equity, Economy and Environment.
• Equity means to restructure human nature and to enforce that restructure by shifting our system of justice from one that adheres to the principle of equal justice and unalienable rights to one that implements the concept of
“social justice.”
• Economy means shifting from free enterprise to “public‐private partnerships.” It also means establishment of a global economy where goods “freely” cross national borders in order to redistribute financial, natural and human resources in order to equalize the income distribution within and between nations.
• Environment means giving plants, animals and even inanimate objects status equal to or even greater than the rights of human beings.

“UN Agenda 21 and You?” program to be held this Sat. in Norman

By Andrew W. Griffin

NORMAN, Okla. – The term “sustainable development” sounds pretty innocuous, right? We all want to be good stewards of the land and environment, right? Well, while it may sound good, the term – and a host of other globalist schemes – are cloaking a greater plan to end private-property rights and ensure more and more control over the individual.

But a group of activists, linked with the Norman Tea Party, are wise to the plans of the United Nations and their minions in the United States. That is why they have organized an event on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., at the First Assembly of God Church in Norman titled “UN Agenda 21 and You?”

Oklahoma Action Alert! Pushing Back against the UN and Sustainable Subversion

Kaye Beach

Feb. 14. 2012

The problem with UN Agenda 21 is not that it came from the United Nations but that our government leaders have embraced the plan and have worked diligently to naturalize the policy into US law and national, state and local policies. The principles of government promoted by the UN and it’s Agenda 21 are antithetical to our form of government that has traditionally put great emphasis on private property rights.   This emphasis on individual liberty and property rights is largely responsible for the historic success of United States as a nation.

The implementation of the tenets of Agenda 21 is nothing short of subversion.  This has nothing to do with environmental stewardship.  It is about control!

There are battles being waged all over the United States as citizens and legislators struggle to protect fundamental property rights against multitudes of non-government organizations and agencies carry out the goals of Agenda 21.

Below is information on two efforts taking place in Oklahoma to defend against the implementation of contrary UN goals, a little history on how the UN policy came to America, one example of how damaging it is to industry and innovation in America and a new agreement (signed Feb 11, 2012) between the EPA and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).

____________________________________________________

Two efforts to push back  taking place in Oklahoma right now. Your support is crucial.

On the county level;

Cleveland County Commissioner Offers Resolution Opposing Agenda 21

On a state level; HJR 1072, Support for the American Sovereignty Restoration Act by Rep. Charles Key.  This measure reiterates the intent of the American Sovereignty Restoration Act  which would end membership of the US to the United Nations. 

HJR 1072 urges Congress and the President of the United States pass legislation and take steps to end membership of the United States in the United Nations. Read HJR 1072

This measure was  referred to the House Rules Committee on Feb. 7, 2012 but it needs to be scheduled for a hearing in the Rules Committee.

Let the Rules Committee leaders know that it is very important that HJR 1072 gets scheduled and heard!

Land Use Control

Since the mid 1970s, both the United Nations and the United States have been moving toward ever-tightening “public” control of land use.

By: Henry Lamb – Sovereignty.net

Ownership of land is the foundation of freedom in America.  The hope of owning even a small plot of ground compelled our forefathers to brave incalculable risks crossing the ocean and challenging the wilderness.  Land ownership was so cherished by our nation’s founders that they guaranteed that government could not take private property without just compensation paid to the land owner.  This founding principle has eroded dramatically over time, especially since 1976.
The United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (HABITAT I) met in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1976.  Agenda Item 10 of the conference report was entitled simply “Land.”

Here is an excerpt from the Preamble to that item:
“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 principal 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.  Public control of land use is therefore indispensable….”
This policy document was agreed to by the United States.  Among the U.S. delegates were William K. Reilly, former EPA Administrator, and Carla Hill, former Trade Negotiator in the Bush Administration.

Here is one example of how the principles of UN Agenda 21 looks on the ground as it is being carried out in the USA.

Signed on Feb 11, 2012-New Agreement between EPA and United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). 

http://www.epa.gov/international/io/unep.html

The MOU identifies areas for strategic cooperation, including strengthening environmental governance and regulatory capacity in developing countries; creating healthy urban communities; facilitating the transition to a green economy; responding to global challenges such as climate change; and providing scientific leadership.
