Solar Power and Rainwater Collection Declared Illegal?

Special-Magistrate-Harold-S.-Eskin_PFTR

Special-Magistrate-Harold-S.-Eskin_PFTR

We’re told endlessly that we must be responsible for the energy we use; that we must be energy-self-sufficient; that the world as we know it will literally come to an end of we don’t buy into the eco-frenzy.

I have no issue with being energy-self-sufficient. In fact I completely agree with the philosophy.

Twenty-five years ago the power company wanted an exorbitant amount of my money in return for sending me an electricity bill each month. I told them to pound sand. I installed solar panels almost immediately and have run my home on them ever since.

Cut to Cape Coral, Florida, where Robin Speronis, a 54-year-old former real estate agent, had a judge declare her solar panels and rain-water collection system illegal.

From Living Off The Grid:

Speronis, a former real estate agent, decided to adopt an off the grid lifestyle in the home she owns after her husband died after a long illness. She cited her faith in God and desire to be self-sufficient.

It was an interest in empowering myself, like we did when we got off the health care system,” she said. “I wanted to look at every other part of my lifestyle and say, do I need this? Is this of value to me? If it went away tomorrow, what would I do? The more I got into it, the more exciting, the more of an adventure it became.

Then came the bureaucrats and with them their deeply ingrained fervor for “following the rules” and their highly illogical sense of injustice.

Last November a bylaw code enforcement officer showed up at the Speronis home and promptly tried evicting Robin Speronis from her own home.

The reason? Robin refused to use public utilities.

At the root of the case is an outdated and idiotic requirement that every home must be connected to the city water system. This dates back to the time when the city deemed using well water a sin and forced everyone to use the city water system.
The Cape Coral city bureaucrats now claim dominion over the skies and the water that falls freely from them. Collecting rain water is now considered a violation of this outdated (did I mention idiotic) city ordnance too.

Her case ended up in court, where Special Magistrate Harold S. Eskin made an utterly absurd ruling.

While declaring the bylaw regulations of Cape Coral redundant and unreasonable, Eskin ruled simultaneously that Robin Speronis violated both local city codes and the International Property Maintenance Code, which unilaterally declares any home without grid-sourced electricity and running water is “unsafe and unsanitary“.

In a word… Hogwash.

Speronis’s case should be a wakeup call for anyone living off the grid. The International Property Maintenance Code and similar regulations are on the books in many parts of the United States and Canada.

Speronis refuses to bow to the city’s demands, though, even while they force liens on her property and continue to issue more fines associated with her ‘violations.’ She is able to appeal the judge’s decision, which would allow her to carry on with her sustainable lifestyle.

She has said, “We have a long, long road to go. I’m sure justice will prevail.”

Living in harmony with nature is now a crime?

I can’t wait for the eco-freaks to catch onto this story.

They’ll surely shred Special Magistrate Harold S. Eskin with his own stupidity, and rightfully so.

When is your private property not your own? Whenever a bureaucritter of the Nanny State says so.

Michel Beauchamp and Josee Landry's front yard garden

We like to believe that when we make the most expensive purchase of our lives, our family home, we’re actually the ones who own it.  It’s a fallacy, however, as more and more homeowners, if I can even call them that, are discovering across North America.

When we buy a piece of land and a house, we believe we can do what we want with that land and home.

Oh, we’re such silly people sometimes, aren’t we?  The bureaucritters of the Nanny State, ever desirous of control over our every waking moment, continually come up with stupider and stupider rules to inflict their will on us and our property.

It wouldn’t be so bad if these bureaucratic buffoons did not have the full power and weight of the State behind them, but they do.  Submit or Die seems to be the motto these Nanny State Bureaucrats live by, and they aren’t particularly caring about which one we do, either.

Anyone who knows the story of Carl Drega knows exactly what I’m talking about.  (For the full story on Carl Drega’s decades long nightmare that ended with his death please read The Ballad of Carl Drega by Vin Suprynowicz)

Michel Beauchamp and Josee Landry's front yard gardenThe latest case of bureaucratic stupidity comes out of La Belle Provence and the town of Drummondville, where Michel Beauchamp and Josee Landry are learning all about “approved” gardening from the mindless minions of the State.

Welcome to their municipal bylaw nightmare, where growing their own food is a crime punishable by a fine of $300 PER DAY for every day they do not comply with a bureaucratic order to remove their garden.

And why must they remove their beautiful and useful garden, you ask?  It doesn’t comply with The Rules, you silly citizen!  And the Rules say every front yard MUST… yes MUST contain the prescribed amount of useless green grass or else!

Ah yes, I remember now… The Rules Are More Important Than People.  How silly of me to forget, even for a moment, that it’s the Minions of The State who are in charge of my life and not me, a mere citizen.

Under Agenda 21 “Property Seizure” is Seen as “Profit-Sharing”

agenda-21-is-evil

Canada’s Constitution is the supreme law.

Any law passed by any federal, provincial, or territorial government that is inconsistent with the constitution is invalid.

The next highest law in the pecking order of paramountcy is the Criminal Code of Canada and the same rules of law apply–or should apply–under the Criminal Code as with the Constitution.

The Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act, otherwise known as SCAN, has been a bone choking my throat ever since it was invented from somebody’s zealous imagination.

By the same token, a noisy, disruptive drug house was a bone sticking in the craw of every property owner and tenant who lived in the otherwise quiet, peaceful, respectable Old Town area of Whitehorse.

This hastily-written piece of legislation was well-intentioned but any law passed to simply to take legal action against one specific target is misdirected.

And it’s hard to say where a law may lead to in future unless a judge has the fortitude to rule that it is invalid in relationship to the paramountcy of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Criminal Code.

SCAN is handy because it is based on civil law and depends on bureaucratic scrutiny; private parties can get into the act, too. It does not require criminal charges from the police and convictions from a court. Therefore, this flimsy non-law is open for drastic abuse.

Soon after SCAN’s enactment, sure ‘nuff, the Yukon legislature made a failed attempt to quickly usher in a draconian Civil Forfeiture Act. Thankfully, the quick-acting public, nimbler than the deceitful politicians, clamped the lid shut on the forfeiture refuse posthaste.

There are already enough laws covering all bases in the Criminal Code tome to choke an oversized camel. Why does a territorial government need to write more unlawful laws to deal with one particular drug house in one community?

Alabama vs Agenda 21 and the United Nations. Alabama (and Liberty) Wins!

agenda-21-is-evil

“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. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of the society as a whole.”

–Agenda 21

In a move that sent shivers of delight through every Freedom-loving man and woman in North America, both houses of  the Alabama State Legislature unanimously passed Senate Bill 477 (SB 477) and sent a very clear message to the United Nations and anyone who supports it.

Don’t Tread On Alabama!

Here is the critical wording of SB 477:

“The State of Alabama and all political subdivisions may not adopt or implement policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe or restrict private property rights without due process, as may be required by policy recommendations originating in, or traceable to ‘Agenda 21.’ ”

Amen.

That’s what leadership looks like.   A decisive decision followed by decisive action.

United Nations go away.

Don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.

“Social Justice” Is Not Kids’ Play

social-justice-roundhouse

In reference to Don Laird’s Selfish Spoiled Brats Steal Money from 9-Year-Old Girl Scout, Say They’re Entitled to It  and Christopher di Armani’s Telling the Truth to Spoiled Brats Across North America, it sounds as though the epidemic of ‘spoiled brats’ infiltrating society need to be tuned up.

Each generation wants the next generation of children to be better educated and have an easier life than their parents before them.

This honorable, feel-good parental philosophy has evolved into a disgusting, socialistic generation of whining, sniveling, lazy, jealous, envious, greedy, grabby, selfish, irresponsible, ill-mannered, uneducated, idiotic, hedonistic, petulant, feel-sorry-for-me brats and lotus-eaters who operate on the pseudo premise that life is fair and that the world owes them a living.

Socialism — which doesn’t work; never did work; and never will work — has become so pervasive that the strong gravitational pull has even sucked an unwilling middle-class psyche into the vortex, too.

The German Karl Marx, who never had an original thought in his head, managed to patch together a string of rag-tag ideas for the masses to live by that he had stolen from other theorists and produced the Communist Manifesto in 1848.

His economic, social and political theories are insane which is why they proved totally unworkable in practicality and reality.

Yet the opulent people-control freaks — the globalists — keep dragging this despicable piece of trash back into the limelight under the guise of different names and agendas.

The latest document is the United Nations’ Agenda 21, the blueprint on how world’s society will be architected for the 21st Century’s living patterns.

Agenda 21 is based on the Communist Manifesto that the failed United Nations, a supplant to the failed League of Nations, eagerly adopted as its manual during its formation in 1945 before World War II was officially finished in the Pacific.

One of the main ingredients to the anti-capitalism treatise is the promotion of the misleading phrase “social justice”.

The wacky “equal distribution of wealth” theory calls for a ban on privately-owned property which would serve to destroy and blend the affluent middle class in with the lower class. If the lower class can’t afford to own property, therefore, the middle class should not be allowed to own property either.

Voila. Equality! (more…)

Farewell, Henry Lamb, Educator About Evils Against Humanity

henry-lamb

I’ve been a devout fan and student of Henry Lamb from the minute I came across his columns over 10 years ago on Enter Stage Right which has a permanent home on my Book Bar alongside other carriers of Lamb’s valuable collection.

Although a long-time disciple, I knew little about the writer and author personally except that he has dedicated many years to educating the public about the evils of such things as Agenda 21–Agenda for the 21st Century–the United Nations, (UN) Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, Maurice Strong…

Recently, I was browsing the Oathkeepers website where I came across the heading “Henry Lamb on Maurice Strong, UN, Bilderberg, Agenda 21” with an introduction by Elias Alias.

I no doubt had read the 1997 piece, but there’s nothing like a refresher course on the litany of evils cleverly perpetrated on the unsuspecting public by the Prophet of Doom.

I wasn’t too far into Elias Alias’ introduction when I was dumb-struck by the unexpected:

“A friend in Montana known as ‘Lark’ sent to my inbox the notice of the passing of Henry Lamb. In clicking around about Henry Lamb’s death I came across a remarkable work he wrote in 1997, and I’m sure it belongs on the pages of Oath Keepers national.”

It was through Elias Alias’ subtle notice that I initially learned that freedom-loving people of the world had lost a unique and intellectual friend.

I read ”Henry Lamb on Maurice Strong”–as should everybody–saved it to my Special UN Articles file, then went clicking for additional information about the 74-year-old gentleman’s May 24th death.

Information was sparse but I did find a brief write-up by Editor Judi McLeod of Canada Free Press where I used to find Henry Lamb’s columns gracing the screen.

“News comes to Canada Free Press (CFP) this morning from columnist Michael Oberndorf of the passing of outstanding American patriot, Henry Lamb,” wrote McLeod in her perfectly-titled tribute:.“Henry Lamb: Death of a Patriot”

“One of a kind Tennessean Henry Lamb held a lifelong dedication to the American Constitution, and did more to warn average people about the destructive encroachment of the United Nations on human society than any other source.”

World Net Daily (WND), where Lamb had been a columnist since 1999, posted an In Memoriam eulogy with the very fitting subhead: “Globalism Expert Was Vociferous Defender of Constitution, U.S. Sovereignty”.

How Some Sucker Stole the Water

logo_dfo

The Christopher di Armani-produced Rights and Freedoms Bulletin of April 28, 2012 carried a frustrating article about the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) declaring war on British Columbia’s Fraser Valley farmers.

The ditches the farmers dug to drain their land have been designated “fish habitat”.

The heavy-handed, gun-toting, jackboot boys told the farmers they can no longer clean their ditches or farm within 30 metres of the ditches, regardless that no fish will ever inhabit the drainage channels.

If farmers are forbidden from dredging their ditches, their properties will flood, thus raising the water table and greatly encumbering their ability to graze cattle and grow crops that feed their families, neighbours and communities which are inhabited by those jackboot bureaucrats.

Further, Fisheries decided it would take control over any bridges and other crossings and has demanded that farmers plant trees along the banks so the bureaucrats can declare the land unfarmable when the work is finished.

The land guardians have no way to appeal Fisheries’ overzealous application of the federal Fisheries Act which has been a thorn in the side of every land-user in Canada for the last eon.

“The DFO is taking this land from these farmers without any concern about their livelihoods or understanding about agriculture,” said Jordan Bateman, Canadian Taxpayers Federation’s British Columbia Director, whose organization stepped up to the plate to give assistance.

“Why are we spending thousands or millions of dollars to employ Fisheries and Oceans bureaucrats to persecute in-land farmers?”

Good question. (more…)

Mining Study Cuts to the Core

dutch-van-tassell

(Originally published in the Yukon News, March 20, 2000)

Dutch Van Tassell Photo, 2009

“When you push somebody far enough, they will stand up and fight. If they don’t fight for their rights, then they are done for. They are slaves.”
— Jim McFaull (1952 to 2012) —

***

Private property ownership is the cornerstone of any free society. The land issues the late Jim McFaull held insightfully under study and discussion for many years help serve as more examples of how the United Nations’ Agenda 21 is working stealthily under the radar in tandem with federal, provincial, state and community governments to transfer all privately-owned property into public domain that will ultimately be placed under control of a one-world government. Ironically, he faced much opposition from his mining colleagues who don’t know or care that they have rights and are not going to fight for them. They just want to work under a “fashionable” Agenda 21 phrase:”Go along to get along”. JG

A blizzard of conflicting legislation and regulations blanketing this territory has eroded the miner’s rights to enter, locate, prospect and mine a claim, says a study released on February 28, 2000.

Report on the Yukon Quartz Mining Act and its Regulatory Regime’s Impact on the Free Entry System of Mining Law delivers what the title promises. (download PDF)

Author Jim McFaull has tackled the complex legal issue head-on. But the 50-page document is far from dry stuff.

McFaull is an accomplished writer and communicator. He has stitched the story together with simple language and an easy style so the layman can comprehend the text. (more…)

Property Owners Are An Endangered Species

agenda-21-is-evil

The delegates who heard about the Wildlands Project during a 1998 Alaska Miners Conference may have naively thought the plot too outrageously unrealistic to pay heed to at the relevant time.

A reprint of Kathleen Benedetto’s paper in the July/August 1998 Mining Voice warned that the ranting of a handful of radical activists really was a must to be taken seriously.

The plan was being endorsed by environmental heavyweights and over 35 organizations, including the United Nations-approved Sierra Club and The Nature Conservancy.

They were lined up at the trough with their wonky ideas funded by wealthy, U.S.-based grant foundations such as Patagonia, Pew Charitable Trusts, The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Lynhurst Foundation, W Alton Jones Foundation and the Ted Turner Foundation.

Before the Internet Revolution, Turner Communications controlled the flow of the former mainstream media information that served to warp the minds of the masses.

The main tool behind the principles of the Wildlands Project, founded circa 1991, is the U.S. Endangered Species Act. It is not sufficient for Wildlanders to preserve what is remaining of roadless, undeveloped land. They want to re-create large swaths of wilderness by dismantling roads and dams, which, by the United Nations’ Agenda 21 standards, are not “sustainable”.

Through regulatory takings of privately-owned land, they want to reclaim plowed farmland, ranches, grazing leases and clear-cuts. Their plans cover reintroducing extinct species while disposing of some human population which Wildlanders view as a disgusting scourge to the planet.

If Wildlanders sound like a bunch of lunatics escaped from an insane asylum, then so is former U.S. Democrat vice-president Al Gore, who just about won the presidential bid in 2000. He and Wildlanders are cut from the same cloth. (more…)

‘Land-Use Planning’ Means Driving People from the Land

agenda-21-trojan-horse

Under the United Nations’ Agenda 21Agenda for the 21st Century–the main thrust is to return all privately-owned property back to public domain. As with the Marxist doctrine, Agenda 21 doesn’t recognize privately-owned property because it is the cornerstone of all free societies.

America’s 50 states are being carved into 12 land-planning regions in anticipation of the forthcoming North American Union of which Canada and Mexico are part of the “three amigo partnership”.

“Partnership” is a keyword that denotes Agenda 21.

Canada is under regional land-planning concepts that link one province’s land to another under the guise of environmentalism.

One of the latest land-planning fiascos is Alberta’s Land Stewardship Act which was drafted and passed behind closed doors by Premier Ed Stelmach’s Conservative cabinet.

“Stewardship” is the keyword that indicates the Land Stewardship Act is a product of the UN’s Agenda 21. Also, under Agenda 21, “meat-eating” is not considered “sustainable” which translates into the elimination of all livestock raised for food consumption.

Unbelievably, the proposed legislation was never brought to the floor of the Alberta legislature for debate. Therefore, opposition members, press, general public, lawyers and, most importantly, landowner associations’ members and their executive directors, who never miss a trick, knew nothing about this land-grabbing Land Stewardship Act for a year.

For good reason, Albertans were in an uproar over this draconian law that dictates exactly what landowners can and cannot do with their land. If the fines and fees don’t do them in, the clincher is that regulators can expropriate land without compensation and the landowners are not allowed legal redress to defend themselves with due process before a court of law.

Alison Redford, a lawyer well-steeped in the United Nations doctrine, no doubt was elected to replace Ed Stelmach as leader of the Progressive Conservative Association in October 2011 because of a promise to rescind the Land Stewardship Act.

As the interim premier, she dispatched a dog-and-pony show to go around the province consulting with angry and frightened Albertans who had plenty to say.

“Public consultation” is another meaningless catch-all phrase that comes from the UN’s Agenda 21. It is cleverly designed to look like people are given a chance to provide input when in fact they are not. The decision is predetermined. (more…)

Earth Hour 2012: Why and How I will be celebrating this awesome event

earth-hour-is-stupid

Earth Hour is one of the most amazing events of the year.   Never have I been so impressed with a cause that has, as its reason for being, the saving of Planet Earth, since Global Warming is going to kill us all.

Just ask the same scientists who, only one generation ago, were claiming the world was entering a catastrophic ice age.  Thirty years later that same data has them fearing a global meltdown.  How awesome is it that we were able to turn the tide from Ice Age to Meltdown in a single generation?

That’s pretty impressive.

Who doesn’t want the Earth to sustain Humanity for many thousands more generations?  Who doesn’t want Johnny, your descendant a thousand generations from today, to have food, power, light and energy to sustain both himself and his family?

Nobody in their right mind wants him sitting in a grass hut eating grubs and berries like a stone-age caveman, do they?  Of course not!

Our population continues to grow so we as a species are going to have to find ways to support all those people.  That means growing more food faster, finding innovative ways to extend growing seasons in even the harshest environments, and improving technology to better provide potable water to the world.

Who could possibly be against all of that?

A truly progressive Human Race will use the talents and the treasure that God gave us to ensure our descendants will have every pleasure we enjoy today and many, many more.

God gave Man dominion over the world and all things in it.  That includes the plants, animals and even those nasty oil and gas deposits that MUST be exploited if the likes of Al Gore and Saint David Suzuki are to continue their globetrotting ways promoting their ant-human agendas.  Those promotions, of course, have a massive personal benefit, but it’s not politically correct to discuss that, is it?

Senator Nancy Greene-Raine espouses common sense about “climate change” and carbon taxes

Senator-Nancy-GreeneRaine

Senator Nancy Greene-Raine is a senator from British Columbia.   Given the Loony Left Coast’s penchant for all things politically correct, I expected a BC Senator to espouse the standard PC line on carbon tax credits and global warming.  I was, therefore, extremely pleased to read her speech in the Hansard where she clearly explains why amending the tax code to give tax credits for people buying “carbon credits” is such a bad idea.

If you agree with the good Senator, please write her at rainen@sen.parl.gc.ca and thank her for standing up for common sense.  It’s such a rare thing in Canadian politics… or politics anywhere for that matter.

http://parl.gc.ca/Content/Sen/Chamber/411/Debates/060db_2012-03-13-e.htm

Hon. Nancy Greene Raine: Honourable senators, I rise to address Bill S-205, an Act to amend the Income Tax Act. If passed, this amendment would give tax credits to Canadians who invest in so-called carbon offsets. While I have no objection to citizens spending their own money in any way they choose, I do not support the government’s giving tax credits for carbon offsets. I say this for several reasons. First and foremost, I consider it an unnecessary and undesirable expense at a time when we should be looking for ways to reduce the tax burden on Canadians. While it is true that the amendment would benefit those who invest in carbon offsets, it would be an expense that would have to be covered by all other taxpayers. I say it is unnecessary because, contrary to the assertions of the honourable senator sponsoring the bill, it addresses an issue that is more and more being questioned by new scientific evidence. We simply do not know that our actions have a significant impact on the global climate, let alone that “the consequences of not acting can be catastrophic,” to quote Senator Mitchell. (more…)

Withdraw from the UN’s Agenda 21. It’s easy. Just follow the lead of College Station, Texas.

save+the+planet

Jane Gaffin wrote a great article about the United Nations’ Agenda 21 the other day titled Everybody Has Heard of Agenda 21; Most Just Don’t Know It.  After reading that I stumbled upon an article about a city in Texas named College Station.  This Texas city had withdrawn from Agenda 21, the program created at the UN’s 1992 Earth Summit on climate change held in Rio de Janeiro.

Specifically, College Station, Texas, was opting out of International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), a group that promotes what it calls “Local Governments for Sustainability” by enforcing “sustainability, climate protection, and clean energy goals” on its member communities.

City Councilman Jess Fields explains why College Station decided to cancel their ICLEI / Agenda 21 membership.

At last Thursday’s council meeting, I proposed to the council to withdraw College Station’s membership in the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) – an international organization founded in 1990 by the United Nations. Our city has been paying somewhere north of $1,000 to be a member of this organization, yet it is not to be found anywhere within the budget. Few have ever heard of ICLEI, and fewer still know that College Station has actually been a member since 2009.

I am truly excited to announce that the proposed 2013 College Station budget will not include funding for this organization. It is an insidious, extreme institution that does not represent our citizens, and for our taxpayers to continue to fund it would be ridiculous.

I applaud our management staff for their thoughtful decision to agree to withdraw from ICLEI in the next budgetary year. In particular, I’d like to thank Jason Stuebe, Assistant to the City Manager, for his extraordinarily thorough research into this and many other topics. Our staff has made the right decision here.

I also want to thank a citizen, Mary Oliver, for her steadfast efforts to bring this issue to my attention over the past couple of years. Without her interest in the subject this might not have been possible. College Station is blessed to have citizens like her who care about what goes on with their local government.

For those who think a single person can’t make a difference, I give you Mary Oliver of College Station, Texas.  I also congratulate her for her tenacity to see her city remove itself from ICLEI and Agenda 21.

Bill 36: Stripping Property Rights from Albertans

canadian-property-definition

Alison Redford’s so-called conservative government’s decision to implement Bill C-36, The Land Stewardship Act, which effectively gives control of all land in Alberta to the provincial government, is a death blow to property rights in Alberta. Under this law, government bureaucrats will now dictate to land owners what they can and cannot do on their own land.

If this sounds obscene to you, then you’d best hang on tight, because it gets worse.  Much worse.  But first, a little background.

Bill 36, The Land Stewardship Act, was initially brought forward by former Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach’s government.  It caused a lot of outrage among farmers and oil patch workers, and with good reason.  The Bill allowed government bureaucrats the ability to rescind water licenses, feed lot approvals, oil patch licenses, and much more, without the ability for the land owner to challenge the decision in court or be paid compensation for the loss of use of their land.

This is the sort of abuse I would expect to see in Soviet Russia, not in the province that most Canadians view as the lone province that still defends Freedom and Liberty in Canada.  Of course that perception is not true and hasn’t been for decades, but it still persists despite all proof to the contrary such as that embodied in Bill 36, The Land Stewardship Act.

When Alison Redford took over as leader of Alberta’s Progressive Conservative Party and with it, the office of Premier of Alberta, the very first thing she did was stop Bill 36 dead in its tracks.  That was a good sign that the new but unelected Premier of Alberta was going to respect the rights of Albertans.

That good sign was, however, very short-lived.

While Premier Redford did create a Property Rights Task Force that traveled the province to garner feedback on the proposed bill, she has promptly ignored everything the Task Force told her in the report and will now move Bill 36 forward unchanged.

Redford obviously has a very different definition of “democracy” than I do.  Her definition would appear to read as follows:

Democracy according to Alison Redford: the right of the Premier of Alberta to follow the dictates of unelected career bureaucrats and their anti-freedom agenda while utterly ignoring the will of the people and their Rights while trampling their Freedoms and Liberty into dust.

Nice…

Everybody Has Heard of Agenda 21; Most Just Don’t Know It

agenda-21-trojan-horse

I can ask people if they have heard of Agenda 21. The inevitable answer is “no”. The response to my short explanation is either met with disdainful silence or with a “you don’t know what you’re talking about” retort. If I ask the same people the same question 30 days later they still say “no” they haven’t heard of Agenda 21. Obviously, my explanation didn’t register with them.

On the contrary, my audience has heard of Agenda 21. Everybody has heard of it. They just don’t know it because the term has seldom if ever appeared in the major media outlets in the 20 years since the project materialized at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during a United Nations Earth Summit Conference in June, 1992.

Anybody who has heard the shop-worn terms and guilt-ridden phrases from the random collection below used in their communities, counties, provinces, territories, states, countries has heard of Agenda 21:

  1. Sustainable Development
  2. Sustainable America
  3. President’s Council on Sustainable America
  4. White House Rural Council
  5. Land councils
  6. Sustainable Development Initiatives
  7. Environmental Initiatives
  8. Community Initiatives
  9. Sustainability
  10. Unsustainable
  11. Stewardship
  12. Partnership
  13. Stakeholder
  14. Smart Growth
  15. Environmental (this or that) (more…)
