Chattanooga City Council Moves Up Annexation Effort, Bradley County next!

In Agenda 21, Government on December 31, 2011 at 10:20 AM

Chattanooga City Council Moves Up Annexation Effort!

Residents of Bradley County listen and listen closely! Our City and County Mayors and State Leaders are now in cahoots with this ICLEI inspired, United Nations led, 16 County, 3 state Regional Growth Plan and are planning to annex much of our county into the city just like Chattanooga is attempting to do!

This means you will pay higher taxes, be under City and County control! We are attempting to be just like Chattanooga and that amazes me! Why are we going to change the landscape of our community? Why are we risking our children’s future? Why are we standing idle as these “useful idiots” change everything?

Bradley County Citizens Against Annexation, BCCAA will and cannot allow this to happen to our community! Let’s band with Chattanooga to stop this in our town, region and state!

Stay tuned for more details!

Chattanoogan.com reports residents in unincorporated areas of Hamilton County are being targeted by City of Chattanooga to move up their annexation effort under the current urban growth plan.

Residents should attend the City Council meeting on Tuesday Jan 3 @ 6pm to challenge the effort.

This would allow the city to annex within the next 12 months areas in their plan.  

Also contact the Chattanooga City Council members and let them know your opinion of their effort!. Homes along Hunter Road would be affected including higher property taxes, storm water fees, zoning restrictions, gun control, etc.

Residents need to get involved, by contacting Hamilton County Residents Against Annexation (www.hcraa.org) to prepare challenge lawsuits against the City of Chattanooga upon second reading. Residents can join 13 existing neighborhoods who have already filed law suites against Chattanooga for forced annexation . The state law allows residents/businesses the right to challenge annexation in court before annexation can occur, but the window is narrow.

Please forward this information to friends, family, home owner organizations (HOA), business owners and churches and ask them to get involved.

Agenda 21 and the Transformation of America

In Agenda 21, Government on December 30, 2011 at 4:07 PM

No longer is denial or ignorance acceptable of our local and State elected officials! They have been informed! They have been asked to stop ICLEI out of Chattanooga from saturating Bradley County! I have personally asked just about every elected person in our county and nothing, nada! Not a single person has stepped up and said this must not happen in our community!

We are no longer going to accept the fact that you are going to acknowledge this and nothing will be done because you choose to be in line with the rest of the politicians! Tyranny and circumvention of the people you represent must not be ignored any longer! It is time for you to retire or find another line of work and be replaced with freedom loving people who are willing to represent those who made it possible to hold the position!

It us time to step up and tell our elected representatives enough is enough! If you don’t have the cahunas to speak up, then step aside! There are many out there that want to save our County and Country!

Agenda 21 and the Transformation of America
Posted on July 7, 2011 by Dr. Ed
by Jerry A. Kane, The Millstone Diaries

The United Nation’s Agenda 21 has not attracted the attention of many Americans, but ignorance is not bliss when it comes to this George Soros-funded/Maurice Strong plan for world government. Agenda 21 uses the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) to make agreements directly with local governments, bypassing Congress.

ICLEI has received funding from Soros’s Open Society Institute, the Tides Foundations’ Apollo Alliance, and Van Jones’ Green for All. It is deeply entrenched in America through a network of local governments from more than 600 American cities, towns, and counties, which are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create sustainable communities.

In addition, ICLEI is the major driving force behind “smart growth” and “green initiatives” projects and the domestic leader on climate protection and sustainable development for local governments.

[Sustainable development] “must be accomplished at the local level if it is ever to be achieved on a global basis.”

The problem is that local government officials are blindly acquiescing to ICLEI’s sustainable development policies, which have been set up to eliminate private property rights.

“Land… cannot be … controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership … 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 society as a whole.”—Preamble to Agenda Item 10 of the Conference Report from the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat I), Vancouver, BC, May 31 – June 11, 1976

Agenda 21 was drafted as a white-paper at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and it outlines the UN plan for sustainable development in 21st century.

“The objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity.”

Agenda 21 targets the following unsustainable activities for elimination by 2030:

       Private property rights (property ownership)
       Irrigation, pesticides, and commercial fertilizer
       Livestock production and most meat consumption
       Privately owned vehicles and personal travel
       Fossil fuels for power generation or mechanized travel
       Single family homes
       Most forms of mineral extraction and timber harvesting
       Human beings (Reduce world population below 1 billion)
On June 9 the Ruler bypassed Congress and signed Executive Order 13575, pledging millions of dollars in grants and committing thousands of federal employees from 25 federal agencies to introduce and implement Agenda 21 programs in rural areas and local communities.

[E.O. 13575] “establishes unchecked federal control into rural America in education, food supply, land use, water use, recreation, property, energy, and the lives of 16% of the U.S. population.”

EO-13575 will erode U.S. sovereignty and empower international bodies and U.N. bureaucrats through sustainable development and the Agenda 21 program, where decision making is predicated on “global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.“

Agenda 21 will replace the free market system with Private Public Partnerships (PPPs) or corporate cronies. In other words, the government will reward some businesses and punish others.

The program will affect the way Americans “live, eat, learn and communicate.” Its overreaching regulations will monitor, regulate, and restrict water, electricity, transportation, healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production, and consumption.

“[T]here is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn’t fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21.”

“No one would be free from the watchful eye of the new global tracking and information system.”

Primarily, Agenda 21 is a globalist plan designed to destroy unalienable rights, constitutional law, national sovereignty, and the middle class in order to erect a socialist world government ruled by an oligarchy of elitist progressives.

“Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by every person on earth. … [I]t calls for specific changes in the activities of all people. … Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all humans, unlike anything the world has ever experienced.”

Fortunately, many citizen and Tea Party activists across the country have weighed the consequences of standing idly by while overreaching regulations supplant their freedoms and liberties and erode their rights to own property. They are now imparting information exposing the Agenda 21 plan and demanding that their towns and cities withdraw membership and sever ties with ICLEI.

But it won’t be easy to defeat Agenda 21 because not enough people care that their country is being fundamentally transformed by a socialist scheme designed to redistribute their wealth, confiscate their property, cram them into small living areas adjacent to public transportation hubs, and sterilize them to reduce world population. Ignorance will be no excuse when the American Dream is in pieces on the ground.

IS THE SOROS-SPONSORED ‘AGENDA 21’ A HIDDEN PLAN FOR WORLD GOVERNMENT? (YES, ONLY IT IS NOT HIDDEN

In Agenda 21 on December 30, 2011 at 8:08 AM

Bradley County Tennessee is in the throws of a takeover by the United Nations, ICLEI, the EPA, DOT and HUD. This takeover of our county is being orchestrated by our local Mayors with a hidden agenda! They have ample assistance from our state elected leaders and are being directed by the Chattanooga Regional Growth plan for a 16 county, 3 state implementation of Agenda 21 into our community! No longer is this a conspiracy theory, this is real life and real time! You think your taxes are bad now? Just wait!

We have stepped into the middle of the most expensive and expansive growth project that will directly change and alter our lives for many generations to come!

If you just sit back and think, why is there such a push to make all these plans a reality in every county in the USA? The obvious answer is it is something big and has a very big payoff for certain individuals! One very sinister man that is directing the onslaught and stands to gain financially from the implementation of Agenda 21 is George Soros! Become familiar with this person. He has single handedly destroyed economies in several countries! Become familiar with him! Google him and see what I mean! Enjoy and have a blessed day!

Call your elected leaders from local to federal and tell them NO to ICLEI and the George Soros sponsored Agenda 21 programs that will forever change our country!

IS THE SOROS-SPONSORED ‘AGENDA 21’ A HIDDEN PLAN FOR WORLD GOVERNMENT? (YES, ONLY IT IS NOT HIDDEN)
Posted on June 14, 2011 at 5:44am by Mike Opelka

What is Agenda 21?  If you do not know about it, you should.

Agenda 21 is a two-decade old, grand plan for global ’Sustainable Development,’ brought to you from the United Nations. George H.W. Bush (and 177 other world leaders) agreed to it back in 1992, and in 1995, Bill Clinton signed Executive Order #12858, creating a Presidential Council on ‘Sustainable Development.’ This effectively pushed the UN plan into America’s large, churning government machine without the need for any review or discussion by Congress or the American people.

‘Sustainable Development’ sounds like a nice idea, right?  It sounds nice, until you scratch the surface and find that Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development are really cloaked plans to impose the tenets of Social Justice/Socialism on the world.

At risk from Agenda 21;

Private Property ownership
Single-Family homes
Private car ownership and individual travel choices
Privately owned farms
The Agenda 21 plan openly targets private property.  For over thirty-five years the UN has made their stance very clear on the issue of individuals owning land;

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 society as a whole.

Source: United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat I),Vancouver, BC, May 31 – June 11, 1976. Preamble to Agenda Item 10 of the Conference Report.

There are two more, very good reasons to be wary of Agenda 21 and the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) that supports it: George Soros and the United Nations. Soros money has been tracked to funding parts of ICLEI ;

In 1997, George Soros’s Open Society gave ICLEI a $2,147,415 grant to support its Local Agenda 21 Project

As regards the UN, that organization‘s problems with America’s appreciation of freedom and self-determination is one that needs no explanation.

Currently in California, Agenda 21 is working to implement plans to create plans for sustainable management of ‘open spaces.‘ The definition of what is to be considered an ’open space’ has sparked some heated exchanges between those directing the planning meetings and citizens who want private property rights to be respected and protected. (The East Bay Tea Party video featuring a Liberal Democrat arguing against ICLEI can be seen at the end of this article.)

This type of global plan could not be implemented without a large and well-funded group pushing through its priorities. For that, Agenda 21 has the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). And ICLEI is deeply entrenched in America;

ICLEI USA was launched in 1995 and has grown from a handful of local governments participating in a pilot project to a solid network of more than 600 cities, towns and counties actively striving to achieve tangible reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and create more sustainable communities. ICLEI USA is the domestic leader on climate protection and adaptation, and sustainable development at the local government level.
Over six hundred cities,towns and counties in America are members of ICLEI? Do you support your local government agreeing to rules and regulations set up by a UN-based organization that wants private property transferred to government control? If you would like to see if your community is a member of ICLEI, you can visit their website.

Austin, Texas is one city that seems to have fallen for the ICLEI/Agenda 21 and was heavily consuming the ‘Communitariasm’ Kool-aid. A local group called Texans For Accountable Government saw what was happening and attempted to stop the Austin City Council from adopting some Agenda 21-friendly initiatives. One of TAG’s members, John Bush, delivered a succinct presentation on ICLEI and Agenda 21 that was virtually ignored. Watch his short argument against the proposed local law immediately followed by the lopsided vote adopting the plan.

In the world of business Agenda 21 is not a free market friend, preferring PPPs or Private Public Partnerships where the government decides which companies will receive tax breaks and are allowed to stay in business. In light of this realization, the cozy relationship between the current administration and GE (a company that paid no tax in 2010) should raise eyebrows. And the WH efforts to tell Boeing in which state they can operate seems to further bolster the belief that Agenda 21 ideals are already making headway in America.

The seeds for Agenda 21 were planted back in 1987 when the writings of Gro Harlem Brundtland (a woman who was first Vice-President of the Socialist International) caught the eye of the UN.  Dr. Brundtland wrote a report for the UN called, ‘Our Common Future’ eventually got into the business of environmentalism as a tool to control all the people of the world and establish a global government. The growth of ICLEI and the framework being put in place by supporters of Agenda 21 appear to be bringing Dr. Brundtland’s ideas closer to reality.

In recent months, many groups have stepped up and have begun fighting this attack on our freedoms and are attempting to notify the masses of this takeover of out sovereignty and eventually our freedom!

Seek out a Tea Party and help offer a solution! Join a group and get busy notifying others across the nation!

Let’s begin to look for an alternative to the socialist ideas of a fix and let’s get back to the constitution and return to our forefathers idea of a strong America and let’s magnify what it stands for!

God bless us!

Chamber of Commerce says “Don’t buy American”

In Government on December 28, 2011 at 9:41 AM

You go and buy your Christmas presents, each dollar you spend at least I do, I say if I could possibly buy this product, is it possibly made in America? Am I able to make America stronger, simply by buying American made products? After all am I not American? Don’t we need to support our own economy? Support the thousands of entrepreneurs who put it all on the line to make a product that many will buy?

I look over the packaging and granted these days you find alot of stuff made in the Phillipines or in China! For the most part let’s say I try to buy American, just because it’s………..American! Right?

The Chamber of Commerce has said differently in the last few years and recently! They are encouraging Americans not to buy American! This is no joke! Really! They are saying that if we buy American, we are cutting major countries out of capital they need to survive! What? Really? We are taking money away from other countries such as China! They are convinced that by buying American they may retaliate and not buy our products! Reducing our fair trade, not sharing the wealth!

Let’s pretend we buy this hogwash. Let’s pretend they cry a little and decide they don’t want to buy anything of ours and and Americans are buying only our products! Is this not the perfect storm? Are we not creating a perfect storm? We help ourselves and they make no money off of Americans? Our negative ratio of export to import is ridiculously high! Sure, some may say it will drive cost and we will pay more at the store. Ok, but if I am buying and all money is staying in the US instead of billions going to China or elsewhere! Are we not creating jobs within our own country? I’m no economist but it seems to make sense to me? Buy here, it stays here! Right? Demand stays so high that we have to create more and more product, doesn’t that produce more jobs? Let’s let China and the other countries discover how to make it off their own dime instead of getting wealthy on our dime. Makes perfect sense to me!

The Chamber of Commerce has killed more jobs in America than Hitler killed Jews! There philosophy of outsourcing the very jobs they are supposed to be creating is robbing Ametica of it’s true life! The continued sentiment they keep echoing that we should not “buy American” is absurd to me! Why would an organization as huge and influential in every County in the US encourage you not to buy American? Only one clear answer comes to mind, keep in mind, I am only a blogger trying to make sense of it all. I am a very simple person who happens to like to write! That simple equation gets me in over my head at times, but with enough research I usually end up putting it all together and spurting out something ingenious at times or just spurting it out, which often is the case! But, not buying American being spit out of the Chamber of Commerces mouth does not seem right to me! This company boasts that it represents millions of successful companies and entrepreneurs it is beyond me why we would place international interest over our own! I have said for months now! Something is afoul when the largest lobbyist group in Washington is encouraging us to not buy American in America! Guess time will only tell if this strategy will work, perhaps it is not supposed to be successful, then that leads us into another blog! Good day, enjoy, spread the News around that doesn’t always make it to the front page! Keep supporting, its working and the word is getting out to thousands, I am humbled by your support

The supporting story!

A major U.S. business group has joined Ottawa in pushing the Obama administration to loosen Buy American purchasing restrictions that have shut many Canadian companies out of lucrative U.S. contracts.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce said Thursday it will urge the U.S. Office of Management and Budget to give government agencies, states and cities greater freedom on where they buy products as the United States deploys billions in economic stimulus cash.

U.S. businesses and local governments are quickly waking up to the reality that Buy American restrictions are likely to cause them substantial harm, particularly if countries such as Canada retaliate with protectionism of their own, said Myron Brilliant, the chamber’s senior vice-president of international.

“We could be at risk for billions of dollars and we’re very concerned about those numbers,” Mr. Brilliant told reporters in Washington.

Senate Approves Bill that Legalizes Sodomy and Bestiality in U.S. Military

In Government on December 27, 2011 at 9:57 AM

What in Sam Hell are they thinking when US Senators voted 93 to 7 to allow the Senate to Approve a Bill that Legalizes Sodomy and Bestiality in U.S. Military?

Please don’t give ne the excuse that you didn’t read what was in it! Please don’t say you didn’t know that it was in the bill!

Over and over and no longer is it an excuse to say that once again you signed a huge bill with very little research or insight into it’s content! The American people deserve better than to have you sitting in an office and signing off on a bill that goes against the very fiber of the American way!

Sex with other men and animals has to be mandated in the US Military by the Federal Government! You feel that it is necessary to pass legislation that will tell men and their dogs what can be done to both!

We have many more pressing issues that need to be addressed and we are worrying about who or what soldiers have sex with!

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins. (AP photo)

(CNSNews.com) – (Updated) The Senate on Thursday evening voted 93-7 to approve a defense authorization bill that includes a provision which not only repeals the military law on sodomy, it also repeals the military ban on sex with animals–or bestiality.

On Nov. 15, the Senate Armed Services Committee had unanimously approved S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act, which includes a provision to repeal Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

Article 125 of the UCMJ makes it illegal to engage in both sodomy with humans and sex with animals.

It states: “(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense. (b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said the effort to remove sodomy from military law stems from liberal Senate Democrats’ and President Obama’s support for removing the military’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy.

“It’s all about using the military to advance this administration’s radical social agenda,” Perkins told CNSNews.com. “Not only did they overturn Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, but they had another problem, and that is, under military law sodomy is illegal, just as adultery is illegal, so they had to remove that prohibition against sodomy.”

Perkins said removing the bestiality provision may have been intentional–or just “collateral damage”

“Well, whether it was inadvertent or not, they have also taken out the provision against bestiality,” he said. “So now, under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), there’s nothing there to prosecute bestiality.”

Former Army Col. Bob Maginnis said some military lawyers have indicated that bestiality may be prosecutable under another section of the military code of justice – the “catch-all” Article 134 for offenses against “good military order and discipline.”

But don’t count on that, he said.

“If we have a soldier who engages in sodomy with an animal – whether a government animal or a non-government animal – is it, in fact, a chargeable offense under the Uniform Code? I think that’s in question,” Maginnis told CNSNews.com.

“When the reader stops laughing, the reader needs to ask the question whether or not this is in the best interests of the government, in the best interests of the military and the best interests of the country? I think not.”

He added: “Soldiers, unfortunately, like it or not, have engaged in this type of behavior in the past. Will they in the future, if they remove this statute? I don’t know.”

Perkins said there was no attempt to remove the UCMJ repeal provision from the bill, which Perkins had expected the Senate to approve.

Now that it has passed, however, the Senate version will have to go to a conference committee, and Perkins predicts there will be several sticking points with the House.

“The House in their version of the defense authorization, reinforced the Defense of Marriage Act, saying that there is a military DOMA as well, prohibiting same-sex marriage on military bases – something the Department of Defense is pushing for,” he said.

“And now this is an added concern, that sodomy has been removed, and as we have discovered, that bestiality–the prohibition against it–has been removed from the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So yes, the House will have problems with this bill.”

Ark of Hope moved to United Nations in New York

In Agenda 21, Government on December 26, 2011 at 9:05 AM

Soon after the aftermath of and in the chaos that followed the 911 disater in New York that rocked the free world, followers and devotees of the United Nations ceremoniously made their way through the debris scattered streets of New York, with very little fanfare, carrying the 200 pound heavily decorated Ark of Hope into its resting place as the symbol of the next chapter in our nation. A New World Order is well under way. The pieces are coming together, the jigsaw puzzle is methodically being fit together.

The Ark of Hope inside the United Nations, it’s resting place with the Earth Charter tucked snugly inside!

The real goal of the Earth Charter is that it will
in fact become like the Ten Commandments.”
– Maurice Strong

The Earth Charter – Humanity’s Covenant with the Earth
The Earth Charter is a declaration of fundamental ethical principles for building a just, sustainable and peaceful global society in the 21st century. It seeks to inspire in all people a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the whole human family, the greater community of life, and future generations. It is a product of a decade-long, worldwide, cross cultural dialogue on common goals and shared values.

The Ark of Hope, a 49″(124.5cm) x 32″ (81.3cm) x 32″ (81.3cm) wooden chest was created as a place of refuge for the Earth Charter document, an international peoples treaty for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society in the 21st century. Visit – http://www.earthcharter.org – for complete information on the Earth Charter. The Ark of Hope also provides refuge for the Temenos Books, Images and Words for Global Healing, Peace, and Gratitude. Over 1,000 handcrafted 8″ x 8″ x 2″ books have been made by artists, schoolchildren, and citizens around the world, expressing their individual and collaborative prayers and affirmations for Earth. The Earth Charter’s 16 principles are the guiding vision behind the creation of these books.

The Ark was designed and painted by Vermont, USA artist Sally Linder, built by cabitnetmaker Kevin Jenness and lined by fabric artist Beth Haggart. It was crafted from a single plank of sycamore maple from a sustainable forest in Germany. The five painted panels that form the sides and top of the Ark each represent the flora and fauna of the world as seen through the images of the world’s traditional artists. Each panel visualizes a season, a direction, an element, and a universal symbol. Symbols of faith from traditional religions and indigenous societies surround the top panel of “Spirit” that honors the children and young animals of the world. The 96″ carrying poles are unicorn horns which render evil ineffective. Inside the Ark’s lid is the Earth Charter handwritten on papyrus paper. The University of Cairo supplied Sally with instructions for making paper with papyrus – a plant known to have the ability to purify water of pollutants. The papyrus was harvested from the Living Systems, Inc. waste treatment plant in South Burlington, VT, soaked for two weeks in Sally’s bathtub, then pressed using 90,000 pounds of pressure at Langdell Papers, a Vermont papermaker in East Topsham.
The Ark of Hope was created for a celebration of the Earth Charter held at Shelburne Farms, Vermont on September 9, 2001. The event, for love of Earth, featured keynote speaker Jane Goodall, global peace walker Satish Kumar, musician Paul Winter, and Dr. Steven C. Rockefeller, a member of the Earth Charter Commission. On September 11, 2001 volunteers were cleaning up from the September 9th event when news of the New York and Washington, DC terrorist attacks and tragedies was heard. Sally Linder’s immediate, spontaneous response to the horror was to begin walking the Ark of Hope to New York and the United Nations. Joined by Andrea Morgante and Janet Fredericks, they carried the 200-pound chest across the meadows of the farm to Rt. 7 where they were joined by Susan Diehl Dufort.

Hundreds of walkers joined the pilgrimage to New York City, bringing with them hope and the vision of the Earth Charter to communities along the way. For two months the Ark of Hope was walked over 350 miles through four states. The last leg of the journey down the Hudson River was aboard Pete Seeger’s legendary sloop The Clearwater. Due to heightened security at the United Nations the Ark of Hope rested at New York’s Interfaith Center upon arrival.
 
Recognizing that the United Nations is central to global efforts to solve problems which challenge humanity, the Ark of Hope carrying the Earth Charter and the Temenos Books was exhibited at the United Nations during the World Summit PrepComII in January-February 2002.

At the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa, the Ark of Hope was ceremoniously offered to the world by the children of Diepsloot, an informal settlement in Johannesburg.

To the people of Bradley County, the region, state and Nation! If we think for a moment that the United Nations existence in every county in the US is benign and just by accident, think again! Let me suggest you re-read this article because you obviously didn’t see the seriousness of this Ark of Hope!

The Ark of the Covenant is a highly revered place in the Christian religion, housing perhaps the Ten Commandments and other literature! Now the United Nations is almost mockingly mimicking and giving the same reverence to the “Earth Charter!”

This mockery is eery to me on so many levels! Attempting to make a religion or establish a sacredness to the sustainability, agenda 21, green movement in a step to establish a “One World Government”, a “New World Order” is really beyond what many of us can or care to comprehend.

These events of moving the Ark of Hope to the United Nations building in New York concerns me and should you too! There is being established a religious type hierarchy that one one day may replace religion as we know it. When writing this story, many thoughts raced through my head. Do they have a specific timeline to fulfill their destiny? Will we be able to resist the push to that New World Order? Will I be free and still have the ability to chain thoughts together in a free society? When the UN takes over are we then subject to international powers only, while superseding not only states rights but will the UN be able to trump the federal government? What will day to day activity be like, one currency, one religion, one church?

Some may think this is a bunch of junk! This man has lost his mind! I have heard this many times and the biggest critics of my rants are the elected leaders and “higher upper socialites” that are making the path for the UN easier to waltz right in to Bradley County!

You can say whatever you want! I am ok with that. It’s the American way! Freedom of speech and I’m totally open to it, because more often than not it establishes dialogue and that is a good thing. Call me odd, but it invigorates me instead of discouraging me. So with that said, disagree with me, fine! But ask yourself this. If this is not a big master plan and their is not a huge push for sustainability and a New World Order, then what is it? Why is there a city planner in every county accepting cash grants for ICLEI to come in to every county in the US and transform all of our communities into little Socialist Green Utopias?

I have to say and I am convinced it is sinister! The Ark of Hope being moved into the UN to house the Earth Charter, the document that got it all started, kinda proved to me this is something more than just a “green sustainable movement” it’s instead a transformation of America into a Socialist community complete with it’s Ark of Hope and it’s Earth Charter to lead the way!

Welcome to the newly designed AmericanMajority.org. Please take advantage of our free resources, including podcasts, guides, and presentations. We hope you will sign up for email alerts under our Join tab so that we can include you in upcoming trainings and announcements. Thank you for all you do.
Going into 2012, cities, counties and school districts across our nation are seeing the effects of the visible lack of principled, conservative leadership, as they face unbalanced budgets, uncontrolled debt and residents who are fed-up with government intrusion into their lives and wallets. The need for new leaders to come forward, to take a stand for free-market and limited government principles and to commit to defending Constitutional principles is as strong as ever. American Majority’s goal is to help those leaders be successful by providing the tools and resources they will need in order to run a victorious campaign.

American Majority will be conducting a candidate training session in Cleveland, TN on Saturday, January 14th at the Bradley County Library (795 Church Street) from 10:00am-4:00pm. The event will be geared toward giving candidates and campaign mangers the resources and information that will help them effectively organize in their communities to defend limited government and free market principles. Registration is $50.00 per person, and includes training materials and lunch.

Some of the topics that will be addressed include:

The Campaign Plan
Fundraising
A Campaign Online
and more!

United Nations Envoy: U.S. Isn’t Protecting Occupy Protesters’ Rights

In Government on December 22, 2011 at 10:00 AM

On the eve of Chattanooga Police reportedly going to be removing the occupiers from a park in downtown Chattanooga I find this article! The United Nations condemning the United States for not doing enough to protect the rights of these squatting protesters who have chosen to live downtown and expose residents and patrons to God only knows what the disease of the week is and break the law!

I have been to many protests, before many of them were out of high school! I have never attended an all night protest! Never have I left the land littered with my waste! Never have I broken the law and gone outside of the city ordinance I have been advised to follow! Never have I pushed this, why, because of a respect for the law! When my time was up, I packed my gear, cleaned my area and went home “within the law!” When and if I had chosen to protest outside of the law, my right to do so would end and I would be arrested!

Protesting within the law is their choice! To live downtown is another thing! These protesters definitely have the right to petition their government, to address any local option they choose, hold as many signs up as they want, but to pitch a tent and stay weeks on end is another thing! Living in downtown in squalor is against the law! The same law that every one else calls on if someone breaks into your house, molests a child or robs you in the street! The law is there for a reason! Not only to protect you, but to protect other law abiding citizens around you!0

Just as I can’t pull my camper up downtown and bring the kids with me and go see all the sights they cannot be residence either! City ordinances protect the people, like them or not they are there to protect the rest of the law abiding citizens.

What good are these laws if they are only going to allow them to flex freely depending on what day it is!

When it is time for Riverbend, the family and I occasionally rent a motel for a night and go to the event and return to our sometimes 200 dollar a night motel (which is not an everyday expense, believe me) but we consider this part of our summer vacation, instead of spending that money this year, I’m going to just pull my camper up somewhere near the aquarium and stay all week, for free! Possibility pull out the grill, slap on a few steaks, roast some marshmallows, shout out “down with big government”, “lower taxes” and have my own little occupy movement! Its the same thing right? Well, of course I want be defacating on police cars, smoking dope, raping others, spreading disease and I will take a bath! Just me and the famy on a peaceful, relaxing vacation in the big city!

If I am asked to leave will my rights be violated, what if they pull a taser out and threaten to tear gas me, will the United Nations say my rights were violated? I highly doubt it? But then again, by then with the help of our Mayors and elected officials, along with the DOT, HUD and the ever omnipresent EPA they may have by then have full control of our “Federal State”, whatever that is? A federal state? That may be our future?

The United Nations needs to stay out of the affairs of anything within the United States, the Federal government should say, stay away, the states should say to the federal government stay out and he citizens should speak up and say to all of y’all stay out of my business!

We have the most powerful nation in the world because we have capitalism, free trade, the right to petition our government via the Constitution, the Constitution! All these things make us great and free! When we start focusing on what part of the law or the Constitution we can ignore or what part of the law we can push aside then we start to loosen the fibers that keeps us strong!

The United Nations needs to go do what “they do well”, start wars, create a disaster, then petition the states and the world for more money to do their dirty work! Go away, United Nations, you have no right in a free society! Just go away!

U.N. Envoy: U.S. Isn’t Protecting Occupy Protesters’ Rights
Dan Froomkin | Dec 2, 2011 2:00 PM EST

WASHINGTON — The United Nations envoy for freedom of expression is drafting an official communication to the U.S. government demanding to know why federal officials are not protecting the rights of Occupy demonstrators whose protests are being disbanded — sometimes violently — by local authorities.
Frank La Rue, who serves as the U.N. “special rapporteur” for the protection of free expression, told HuffPost in an interview that the crackdowns against Occupy protesters appear to be violating their human and constitutional rights.
“I believe in city ordinances and I believe in maintaining urban order,” he said Thursday. “But on the other hand I also believe that the state — in this case the federal state — has an obligation to protect and promote human rights.”
“If I were going to pit a city ordinance against human rights, I would always take human rights,” he continued.
La Rue, a longtime Guatemalan human rights activist who has held his U.N. post for three years, said it’s clear to him that the protesters have a right to occupy public spaces “as long as that doesn’t severely affect the rights of others.”
In moments of crisis, governments often default to a forceful response instead of a dialogue, he said — but that’s a mistake.
“Citizens have the right to dissent with the authorities, and there’s no need to use public force to silence that dissension,” he said.
“One of the principles is proportionality,” La Rue said. “The use of police force is legitimate to maintain public order — but there has to be a danger of real harm, a clear and present danger. And second, there has to be a proportionality of the force employed to prevent a real danger.”
And history suggests that harsh tactics against social movements don’t work anyway, he said. In Occupy’s case, he said, “disbanding them by force won’t change that attitude of indignation.”
Occupy encampments across the country have been forcibly removed by police in full riot gear, and some protesters have been badly injured as a result of aggressive police tactics.
New York police staged a night raid on the original Occupy Wall Street encampment in mid-November, evicting sleeping demonstrators and confiscating vast amounts of property.
The Oakland Police Department fired tear gas, smoke grenades and bean-bag rounds at demonstrators there in late October, seriously injuring one Iraq War veteran at the Occupy site.
Earlier this week, Philadelphia and Los Angeles police stormed the encampments in their cities in the middle of the night, evicting and arresting hundreds of protesters.
Protesters at University of California, Davis were pepper sprayed by a campus police officer in November while participating in a sit-in, and in September an officer in New York pepper sprayed protesters who were legally standing on the sidewalk.
“We’re seeing widespread violations of fundamental First Amendment and Fourth Amendment rights,” said Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, co-chair of a National Lawyers Guild committee, which has sent hundreds of volunteers to provide legal representation to Occupations across the nation.
“The demonstrations are treated as if they’re presumptively criminal,” she said. “Instead of looking at free speech activity as an honored and cherished right that should be supported and facilitated, the reaction of local authorities and police is very frequently to look at it as a crime scene.”
What they should do, Verheyden-Hilliard said, is make it their mission to allow the activity to continue.
Using the same lens placed on the Occupy movement to look at, say, the protest in Egypt, Verheyden-Hilliard said, observers would have focused on such issues as “Did the people in Tahrir Square have a permit?”
La Rue said the protesters are raising and addressing a fundamental issue. “There is legitimate reason to be indignant and angry about a crisis that was originated by greed and the personal interests of certain sectors,” he said. That’s especially the case when the bankers “still earn very hefty salaries and common folks are losing their homes.”
“In this case, the demonstrations are going to the center of the issue,” he said. “These demonstrations are exactly challenging the basis of the debate.”
Indeed, commentators such as Robert Scheer have argued that the Occupy movement’s citizen action has a particular justification, based on the government’s abject failure to hold banks accountable.
La Rue said he sees parallels between Occupy and the Arab Spring pro-democracy protests. In both cases, for instance, “you have high level of education for young people, but no opportunities.”
La Rue said he is in the process of writing what he called “an official communication” to the U.S. government “to ask what exactly is the position of the federal government in regards to understanding the human rights and constitutional rights vis-a-vis the use of local police and local authorities to disband peaceful demonstrations.”
Although the letter will not carry any legal authority, it reflects how the violent suppression of dissent threatens to damage the U.S.’s international reputation.
“I think it’s a dangerous spot in the sense of a precedent,” La Rue said, expressing concern that the United States risks losing its credibility as a model democracy, particularly if the excessive use of force against peaceful protests continues.
New York Civil Liberties Union Executive Director Donna Lieberman welcomed the international scrutiny.
“We live in a much smaller, connected world than we ever did before, and just as Americans watch what goes on in Tahrir Square and in Syria, the whole world is watching us, too — and that’s a good thing,” Lieberman said.
“We’re kind of confident that we’re living in the greatest democracy in the world, but when the international human rights world criticizes an American police officer for pepper spraying students who are sitting down, it rightly give us pause.”

Clean Water Act: EPA blasts Bradley Counties Wright Brothers Construction with heftiest fine ever

In Uncategorized on December 20, 2011 at 9:18 AM

The EPA sues a local business that employs thousands of workers and feeds perhaps thousands in this county for nearly 3 million dollars, the single largest fine in the history of the EPA under the federL governments green initiative the Clean Water Act!

The Charleston, Tennessee construction company that has provided millions in new roads and enough jobs to offset anything the Chamber of Commerce, Amazon or Wacker have ever tried to do and can you believe not a single word of support in their favor by a single person in the current administration of the city mayor, county executive, the city council, the county mayor, county commissioner, city or county Sherrif or any of their deputies, state representatives x 2, state senator, congressman, US Senator x 2 or the governor in the great state of Tennessee has said a word in their defense! Can you believe it? You know why? The federal government has castrated these leaders who are apparently absent of any cahunas to stand up and dare defend a local that employs hundreds perhaps thousands!

Local State Representative Kevin Brooks 24th District Tennessee who received thousands of dollars in campaign funds from Wright Brothers and not a word I have heard uttered publicly in their defense! People this is America, this is small business doing well and if we can’t defend that great honor to work hard and be successful we might as well just toss in the towel now cause we are doomed! Where are you Mr. Brooks on this issue, come out wherever you are!

We are under attack by the very people you told me that if they did anything like you speak of “we will not let them do it” Well, Mr Commissioner, who sits on the far right of the oval, they are doing what you said would probably never happen, “we would never cast a vote to let something like that happen” Well, that time has come and gone! Eat these words, chew them slowly, digest them rapidly because there are many more fines that will be dealt on to the many good businesses in our county and you know why they will? Because you have given them the power to do so!

The Mayors x 2 and both of their councils have married this beast and have openly refused to stand up and say anything to stop the onslaught of the EPA, DOT and HUD! you accepted millions in federal grants that allowed this to happen! This is on you, current administration of elected representatives! State Representatives Brooks and Watson, while on your state watch, you refused to say a thing, although I begged heavily for you to stop this onslaught! Political correctness is no longer accepted as the excuse! Families and businesses you represen are bow being affected by the Feds because you accept a few dollars I’m grant money in return!

Did you know our sherrifs could tell the EPA to stand down and not fine these job creators! Did you know that? Yes they can! They can protect our county and city and they can officially run them the hell out of Tennessee! They are our guardians!

They took an oath to protect you and the businesses you run! They have this power! They can keep the federal government and the EPA at bay with one strong showing of their badges! Is there anyone that wants to stand up for the working class? Are we too numb? Do we think that whatever the EPA or the Federal government deals out we are obligated to take it? States have rights too and we can step up and protect her!

The obvious problem is noone has a set, they were chopped off when the grant money was accepted! It is so sad that a man of any character has yet to stand up and defend the entrepreneur called Wright Brothers Construction!

Get in line, any other business that dares deal with the devil, accept their money and be expected to jump through their hoops! Farmers, the fines I warned you of many times are coming to you too!

The EPA with some far out idea that the Wright brothers have somehow stopped the spawning of some pink salmon a thousand miles downstream by blocking some 150 linear feet of creek bed with dirt and residue from all the construction they have done is the main problem, good God help us all! This is the crux of the lawsuit and fines of nearly 3 million dollars!

Let’s pretend now that you decide to move a mound of dirt that may somehow, in their personal and professional opinion may block the water to a 2 inch smelt some 350 miles south of us! Let this be your backyard and let’s pretend you own a dairy farm. That dairy farm that you vehemently denied water to by blocking the natural flow of water, you risk having your dairy farm being foreclosed upon because you can’t pay the fines that the EPA brings down on you because “carbon” and minerals can’t flow downstream!

The fines may accumulate every month or so and their is nothing you can do about it! The EPA HAS SEALED THE DEAL!

The regional plan that the Mayors have so willingly signed off on is the real problem! You see they have given you the full shaft! They have sold your soul to the devil! The regional growth plan with the insistence of ICLEI and the Chattanooga planners has made this a reality!

Read the rest of this article in the banner and tell me if we are not in trouble! We are on a dead street and nothing you cam be done to prevent it shirt of replacing all the spineless leaders with a new batch willing to protect our county and state! It’s time!

Let’s just bend over and say as Tony Soprano used to say “fugget bout it” its only a thang!

Below is a copy from the EPAs website boasting of this huge fine which is revenue for them to hire more agents to do the same in greater amounts! This is what they have done in other states before Tennessee!

(Washington, DC – December 12, 2011) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Wright Brothers Construction Co. and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) have agreed to pay a $1.5 million dollar penalty and spend more than $1.3 million to offset environmental damages to resolve alleged violations of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The civil penalty is one of the largest ever under the CWA provisions prohibiting the unauthorized discharge of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States.

The proposed Consent Decree in this matter resolves a Clean Water Act (CWA) civil judicial action for violations stemming from the unlawful disposal of excess rock and soil generated from the expansion of U.S. Route 441 and U.S. Route 76 in Rabun County, Ga. 

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) conducted the highway expansion projects and hired Wright Brothers Construction Company (Wright Brothers) to dispose of excess material generated from the projects. The contracts between GDOT and Wright Brothers specifically required Wright Brothers to obtain environmental clearance from GDOT prior to using any site as a fill site. GDOT approved sites that included streams considered to be waters of the United States.

Wright Brothers is headquartered in Charleston, Tenn. and performs site preparation, grading, excavating, highway and heavy construction services.

Violations

The Defendants violated Sections 301 and 404 of the CWA by discharging dredged and/or fill material into waters of the United States without, or in violation of, a permit issued under Section 404 of the CWA by the Army Corps of Engineers. 

Between 2004 and 2007, the Defendants buried and/or piped seven primary trout streams while disposing of excess material generated from the U.S. Route 441 and U.S. Route 76 expansion projects.  These actions impacted approximately 2,800 linear feet of stream.

” 12 month grassroots property tax plan” introduced to Bradley Countians

In Government on December 19, 2011 at 6:21 AM

Ok! I’m going to say what I have ridiculed my teenagers for having said on many occasions, but I will admit now I know why they say it! OMG! Oh My Gosh! For lack of a better word it kinda fits when you really don’t know what else to say!

The Bradley County monthly tax plan to repay your taxes! A “12 month payment plan” has been devised to help you pay your taxes so you will not get behind and lose your home, thus avoiding that lump sum at years end!

They are calling this a grassroots plan, a plan that has no other alternative! When I think grassroots, I generally think about something besides a “government courtesy plan as a way to pay your taxes!” Im odd like that I guess! Oh well!

We thought the airplane or the diesel engine was a good thing? Not hardly! County Trustee Mike Smith has rolled out the highly popular, highly sought after 12 month tax payment plan that is going to save the county from bankruptcy!

Those taxes you owe, guess what? They have become so darn expensive we are going to let you cut it up into 12 monthly payments and make little ole bitty payments so your tax burden won’t seem so large! After all for that tax burden of 1200 dollars a year is NOW only 100 dollars a month! Seems like a real steal when you think of it this way! Who would not rather pay 100 dollars a month instead of that big ole year end payment of 1200 dollars, whew, this grassroots movement is already making my payments manageable! Thank you trustee Smith! I am so glad the government has got my back! (please note if the sarcasm is a little heavy, close the page I guess and read something else)

Just think when that monthly payment gets raised to 150.00 dollars a month you will hardly notice! Who ever said the government is out of touch with the general populace have never seen this plan, duuuuuh!

The reason this “grassroots” movement is so awesome and so largely popular with the taxpayers (less than 300 are enrolled, but growing) is the government can throw in a big ole tax increase and you will barely recognize it, in fact in a few years those monthly 100 dollar payments will seem like a god send when they finally put that debt burden on you to support all the multi billion dollar plans our elected officials have for you, but have no way to pay for them!

Where else but in America can you lose your job at (the current rate for Bradley County close to 10 percent), get an unemployment check and still be asked to take from that measely check or even take from a side job where you put on a roof all day just to sustain life and yet make a monthly payment on your taxes just to keep your home! Think about how helpful the government is being to you with this truly grassroots payment! Taking food from you and your kids mouths (truly a grassroots movement) all the while paying that little bitty 100 dollar tax payment a month! Wow! Thanks guys, you are A OK!

I am starting to get warm all over and my brow is damp with perspiration from the gratitude I feel that this grassroots plan has helped me tremendously! I will never be able to thank you enough! Wow!

Thank God for this “grassroots” movement to allow you to pay in 12 month increments instead of one big payment at years end!

I’m telling you Bradley County, without the local government working with you so diligently and out of respect for your property rights, you might lose that house you grew up in!

Kudos out to all the people in government who are taking care of us! A great big hug to all the government bureaucrats that have “your” best interests in mind! The giving hand of our local government never quits extending that hand of caring! I get goose bumps every time the federal, state or local government wants to help me with paying my taxes!

Thank you Mr Smith for helping me help you reach your year end goal of collecting enough money to meet your year end goal of revenue for the County! I am so glad this grassroots connection is working out for you, of course so you can help all the citizens out who are paying out way too much money already in the form of taxes!

Keep working on all these plans! Someone somewhere is very proud of your effort! Who knows you may even get an award at the end of the year as tax collector of the year, shoot, maybe even a few of our state representatives will then come and ask you for some of that free money so they can build something else in Bradley County to promote something else we don’t want so an ego can be stroked so everyone will feel good around Christmas! For now Bradley Countians enjoy the lower tax burden, because it is fixin to go through the roof! Do you see the pattern? With every hand of assistance you get from the government, it’s one more dollar they want to pull from your paycheck!
