Agenda 21: Communism By Any Other Name

“It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance.”  Pres. George H.W. Bush.

H.W. signed and agreed to implement Agenda 21 in 1992.

“Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced – a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals,” he said, “and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources.  This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action will be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.”

And George H.W. (41) was a Republican president.

Kudos to Glenn Beck for his hour-long program on Agenda 21.  His guests did a credible job of describing the incursions will make on our private and property rights.  Among the rights Smart Growth will claim is jurisdiction over the trees (and their roots on privately-owned property; the Government will retain environmental custody over the trees.  If you want to cut down the tree because you want to put in a swimming pool or you’re too old to rake leaves any longer, the Government will penalize you.

Now, we weren’t too happy when Mom’s next-door neighbor cut down every tree on his property to make way for a huge swimming pool.  Yet he was allowed to demand that she cut the limbs off the tree on her property because it was overhanging his.

During Hurricane Sandy, we saw just how much damage trees can inflict when a strong storm comes along.  A few years ago, a tornado uprooted thousands of trees along the ironically named Sawmill River Parkway in New York’s Westchester County.

I was upset to see that Mom’s neighbor had cut down the giant oak in his backyard.  Mom said that was part of having property rights, though.  She also said not to worry; that God could always grow more trees.  We here in the woodlands are used to trees, including those that fall.  We know to stay in when the wind gusts above 40 m.p.h., just as residents in California are used to earthquakes, wildfires, and illegal immigrants.

Every town in New Jersey lost power immediately after the hurricane.  Most suburbs, depending on the centralized utilities, Jersey Central Power and Light and Public Service Electric and Gas, were without power for over a week.  There were at least two exceptions:  Park Ridge, in Bergen County, which got power restored 100 percent within four days.  Eighty percent of Park Ridge had power the next day; and Butler, which had power (along with its sister town, Bloomingdale – not West Milford or Kinnelon as reported in the local newspaper) in less than 48 hours, with the exception of Mom’s section of her road.

How did those three towns get power up so quickly?  Were they lucky?  Did they bribe someone in the bureaucracy?

No; Park Ridge and Butler had their own power authorities; their own power plants.  Like the naysayers clamoring to get onto Noah’s Ark, Butler’s neighbors are clamoring to get on Butler’s grid.  Riverdale’s mayor has said, “No.”  However, Butler would soon reach a situation of critical mass if it tried to service all of northwestern New Jersey.   The answer would be for more towns to create their own utilities and share them with one or two other towns.

Just as northern New Jersey is beginning to see the light about centralized utilities – better to have them and not need them than to need them and not have them – the state legislature is preparing to pass a new law that could penalize towns for refusing to share municipal services with their neighbors.

So if Butler is doing it, and it worked out so well for Bloomingdale, what’s the problem?  The problem is regionalization.  The state intends to force the sharing of not just electrical and other utilities, but police and fire departments as well.  One of the state’s complaints is how much equipment like fire trucks cost.

Cutting down on administrators is one thing; cutting down on fire trucks and police officers is another.  Would you want to be the owner of the burning house, five miles from the nearest firehouse?  Would you want to wait 20 minutes for a police officer to arrive to chase the guy who just stole your car?  In fact, they don’t chase them anymore, claiming that the chases are too expensive.  Better to just let the car thief get away to the chop shop and let your insurance company buy you another car.  Right.

Police officers have declared that they’ll no longer respond to burglaries.  They sure are out there if you go over the speed limit, though (although I’m all for nabbing red-light runners).  They do respond to emergency calls if someone is having a heart attack;  I’ll say that for them.  But in order for a police officer to get to Mom’s house from across Rt. 23, that patrol car would have to run quite a few red lights and run over quite a few pedestrians before it got there.

This is all about Agenda 21 and “encouraging” suburbanites to live closer together, nearer to town centers, to mass transportation, and other facilities.  This is about taking the “savings” we would “realize” and apply them to the urban centers such as Newark and Paterson (for whom we have to thank for an all-Democrat Board of Frozen Cheeseholders who will probably reinstate the county into ICLEI).

Agenda 21 goes by many names:  Smart Growth, Sustainable Development, Smart Communities, Business Improvement Development.  The wily forgers of Agenda 21 knew from the beginning that they would have problems with the association with the United Nations.

In June of 1998, J. Gary Lawrence spoke at a UNED-UK/LGMB Seminar in London.  Local Agenda 21 (LA21), he said, “…is seen as an attack on the power of the nation-state.  In such cases, particularly when local authorities are dependent upon threatened nation-state resources and/or permission to enact new initiatives, LA21’s aren’t happening or are happening only as theater… In the case of the U.S., our local authorities are engaged in planning processes consistent with LA21, but there is little interest in using the LA21 brand.  Participating in a U.N.-advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the ‘conspiracy-fixated’ groups and individual in our society such as the National Rifle Association, citizen militias, and some members of Congress.  This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a U.N. invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21.  So, we call our processes something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management, or smart growth.”

Forcing small towns to share services amongst themselves isn’t exactly what the regional planners have in mind here in New Jersey.  What they mean to do is cut services, ostensibly to save money, but in actuality, to discourage residents from living in suburbs.  If your house burns to the ground, the bureaucrats won’t lose any sleep over it.  They’ll give you a subsidy to live in a planned community, instead.

That’s what the city fathers of Newark thought when they enticed the New Jersey College of Medicine and Dentistry to take up residence in Newark’s poorest ward, where they thought the hospital would be of the most benefit.  Unfortunately, they had to raze Newark’s poorest ward in order to build the hospital.

The year was 1967 and what they got for their social engineering ambitions was a six-day riot that tore the city’s business district apart.  White businesses were particularly targeted, although black business suffered, as well; they put signs of on their windows indicating that the business was black-owned.  The city was already quite agitated from the racial unrest of the times and razing that neighborhood was like pouring gasoline on a fire.  The spark was a black cab driver who got pulled over for speeding.  How did that social engineering work out for you, Newark?

Glenn Beck’s guests were correct about some other matters as well.  The Agenda authors intend to “mix things up” so that all communities are more racially and ethnically “diverse.”  This “diversity” will guarantee that no Conservative will ever win again – not in New Jersey, at least.  Crime will increase and unemployment will rise.  So will the garbage piles, incidentally, if garbage collection service is centralized and reduced.

Agenda 21’s goal is the year 2020; that’s seven years come January.  What were you doing seven years ago, in 2006?  Not so long ago, was it?  That’s how long we have.  Agenda 21’s plan is to confiscate all private property and wildlands as well.  Not only will you not be allowed to build on these lands, you won’t even be allowed to set foot on them.

Agenda 21 planners have been working locally since 1992, counting on public malaise to quietly push their “agenda” through.  After all, who attends town planning meetings?  The current parent generation is too busy either working or attending soccer practice to bother with the future.  The future is not going to take care of itself; if we don’t take care of it, and very soon, the United Nations will.

This is no conspiracy theory, as Glenn Beck noted on last night’s program; it’s the real deal.  There’s plenty of evidence on Agenda 21 on the Internet.  Agenda 21 doesn’t include 9 principles, however; there are 27 of them.  Principle 5 is a gem:

“All States and people shall cooperate in the essential task of eradicating poverty as an indispensable requirement for sustainable development, in order to decrease the disparities in standards of living and better meet the needs of the majority of the people of the world.”

Wait.  What?!  But, yup, that’s Agenda 21.  Avalon Bay in Bloomingdale is Agenda 21 or Sustainable Development.  So is Argonne Woods in Butler, an ugly monstrosity of a project.  So is the Business Improvement Development for in Pompton Lakes.  Originally, it was called both Sustainable Development, and then Smart Growth, until the natives caught on, and they renamed it, with the purpose of completely remaking the town center by the year 2020.  By then, they figure the oldest – and wisest – residents will be in nursing homes and the Brainwashed Generation will just go along to get along.

I live in what would be considered a “sustainable community” – a condominium complex at the center of town.  I find it handy, being single, but I hardly think that a growing family would want to live here (especially next door to the Tattooed Lady).  That’s another one of Smart Growth’s goals – zero and even minus-population growth among the most threatening demographic, suburban white people.  People who live in places like this will have few, if any, children.

Agenda 21 is an all-encompassing transformation of our society, so expansive that it’s going to take all of us to fight them.  This is not something that you can just sit back and ignore, like the 2012 election.  Thanks to you slackers out there, Obama was elected, and Moderate Republicans are sharing power and compromising with him.  We have less leverage now than we did in 2010.

If you really don’t care, then you’d better get a dumpster for all your extra “stuff” and start downsizing your household.  Start packing, because Agenda 21 is coming, sooner than you think.

  1. Hi there, You’ve done a fantastic job. I’ll certainly digg it and personally recommend to my friends.
    I’m sure they’ll be benefited from this web site.

  2. Thanks for your submission. Another factor is that being photographer includes not only trouble in capturing award-winning photographs but hardships in getting the best video camera suited to your needs and most especially struggles in maintaining the caliber of your camera. It is very true and clear for those photographers that are in to capturing the particular nature’s captivating scenes – the mountains, the actual forests, the particular wild or even the seas. Going to these amazing places absolutely requires a video camera that can meet the wild’s tough areas.

  3. Everyone loves you do not like a what you are, still like a exactly who My group is next time i are away with you.
