Incremental change via elected leaders lays groundwork for Agenda 21 fulfillment

9/18/2014
1044 am

We all have a choice! We are all capable of recognizing right and wrong. We live in a world today where it is most important to know the difference.

We have elected officials and leaders in the communities in which we live who are making decisions that affect our daily lives. Big decisions that will leave us in a situation that will not provide a path to retreat to once bad decisions are made.

Recently, in Bradley County Tennessee, our elected leaders have voted to revise, adopt and accept international building codes and a few have called for stricter environmental regulations to be placed on it’s citizens. A tighter control to push someone else’s agenda upon you the private property owner. 

For some reason, our elected officials are under the belief that to do things right, we must adopt regulations and codes that are from an international body, particularly the United Nations under the guises of Agenda 21.

Many scoff at this thought that somehow the UN is going to reach into our community and dictate to us what and how we are going to structure our community. This in fact is happening and our elected leaders seem oblivious to this fact when a few googled words could provide them the answers they need and resolve any doubt.

Unfortunately too many listen to someone else that may not be as informed. This scenario never ceases to amaze me. Simply dismissing something because it sounds too far fetched? This phenomenon is an interesting study in human nature and it’s ability to drift toward public opinion instead of rock steady facts. 

The device used in this wave of Agenda 21, particularly chapter 7, is locally elected officials. Local Agenda 21 is focused on changing your community or habitat with environmental and international building codes using those you elected, then bypassing them with the same regulations and codes they just enacted. 

The bricks are being laid even as we speak. Many elected officials are willingly going along with the plan to transform our country into a socialist utopia while destroying our individual God given rights. We are at a crossroads. We do not get a second chance to save her.

Incremental small changes will gradually succumb us to this international push to transform our
Nation, our community, Bradley County into something beyond our control, a method to control every aspect of your life and choke you of liberty, sovereignty and property rights.

The people you have elected to office are in charge of making these decisions. We don’t get a do over. Once done it is done.

Remind each commissioner, Mayor and elected official that you will be holding them accountable for each and every decision they make. And when it all hits the fan, tell them you
will not forget them giving away your  rights and your freedom to an international body.

Say no to the adoption of
International Building codes and UN influence on our county.

Many in elected office have tried
to forget about Agenda 21 and it’s influence on our community. They have tried to toss it aside like if I forget about or ignore it, it will go away. It will not go away. Simply refusing to continue to address it will not stop it from progressing and eventually assuming every function your elected officials were elected to perform.

Below is a video that was given to many elected officials in the recent past. I consider it one of the best and most simple video about Agenda 21 for elected officials I have seen.

Please feel free to share it and this blog entry. 

This video provides a description of Agenda 21/sustainable development and how it affects your property rights. 

While it is important to be good stewards of our planet, the sustainable development movement has been co-opted by an aggressive agenda to rewild America (The Wildlands Project) and reduce automobile usage and unnecessary travel by gradually shifting people into high density urban areas supported by mixed use dwellings (Smart Growth.) 

Often the planning process to meet these objectives confiscates private property rights through imminent domain or conservation easements. The outcome is not a safer planet, but rather, an unrecognizable nation most would strongly oppose. When advanced community by community, most do not realize the bigger picture. 

The bigger picture is the elimination of your property rights one regulation or code at a time and herding you into pods on a pre determined growth boundary complete with guidelines to develop your community or build your home. Doesn’t sound desirable to me, what about you?

How Agenda 21 influences the BCC 2035 joint strategic plan

How Agenda 21 influences the BCC 2035 joint strategic plan

9/17/2014
0911 am

Shortly before Henry Lambs death, I asked Henry to evaluate the BCC 2035 growth plan and it’s proposed building codes. Henry was one of the foremost leaders on Agenda 21 and how it was affecting our local communities. He was great at analysis and his thorough understanding of Agenda 21 made it a joy to drain his brain at every occasion.

Shortly before his untimely death he took great interest and was drawn to what was being done in Bradley County. He graciously studied our growth plan and drew comparisons to Agenda 21 and offered his genius to show specifically where our very own growth plan was indeed a product of the UN and Agenda 21. His analysis showed the eerily close similarities the UNs plan to eventually herd us all into pods, loss of sovereignty, property rights and eventually world dominance under a new world order.  

His analysis when done showed many elected leaders that their involvement was indeed a devious plan by the UN to gain control of the last bastion of freedom, our property rights and our sovereignty.

This week the Bradley County Commission voted to enact new building codes in accordance with Agenda 21, particularly chapter 7.

These new regulations and codes are set to go into affect on January  1, 2015. They have allowed for a 90 day education period before the final vote is cast. This is part of that educational process.

You may ask what is wrong with building a building that is done right and has regulations that protect the citizenry? It is all incremental and it takes baby steps to make leaps ahead. This is by design. Our elected leaders once the pieces of the pie are formed and the plan in place will have very little say so about what goes on in the community of Bradley County mainly because they won’t have elected officials to represent them. The peoples voice and representation will be taken away.

Please read the link below by Henry Lamb. It is a PDF file so I could not cut and paste. I left it intact and please enjoy as it relates directly to our county and it’s growth plan.

UN’s International Building Codes, necessary tool for Agenda 21 implementation

In Agenda 21 on September 16, 2014 at 7:52 AM

UN’s International Building Codes, necessary tool for Agenda 21 implementation

9/16/14
0744 am

Here is an excerpt from the preamble of the document Agenda 21

“Land… cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. 

Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes… 

Public control of land use is therefore indispensable to its protection as an asset and the achievement of the long-term objectives of human settlement policies and strategies.”

By Henry Lamb, post humously, I certainly do miss his mentoring abd advice.

“Anyone who reads Chapter 7 of Agenda 21, and then reads their local comprehensive land use plan will immediately recognize that most of the provisions of the local land use plan come directly from Agenda 21. 

More often than not, the elected officials who adopt these plans have never read Agenda 21, and many have never even heard of the U.N. document, signed by President George H. W. Bush in 1992.

The facilitators and professional planners have heard about Agenda 21, but frequently claim that the plan they are working on has nothing to do with the U.N. or Agenda 21. Don’t believe it for one minute.

Gary Lawrence, former Director of the Center for Sustainable Communities at the University of Washington, and Chief Planner for the City of Seattle, told an audience in London that:

” In the case of the U.S., our local authorities are engaged in planning processes consistent with LA21 [Local Agenda 21] but there is little interest in using the LA21 brand…. So, we call our processes something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.”

In community after community, the same scenario is repeated. The federal government, through the EPA or the Department of Commerce or the Department of Interior, offers special grants to communities for the purpose of developing a vision for a greener future, and a plan to convert the vision into reality.

Typically, the local government will find a private consultant to “facilitate” the process. The facilitator will identify a local “steering committee,” carefully chosen from people who represent various segments of the community, all of whom are known in advance to be sympathetic to the goals of Agenda 21.

Typically, the advisory group will meet in private to lay out the framework for the process and the goals for the finished product. When this is achieved, public meetings are scheduled to give the appearance of public input and ownership. Rarely are these meetings ever publicized adequately to attract the private property owners who are most directly affected. Care is taken to see that members of local environmental organizations and social justice organizations constitute the majority of attendees.

These public meetings are said to be “the visioning process.” The procedures vary slightly from community to community, depending upon the facilitator. Remarkably, however, the “vision” in every community contains essentially the same elements: restricted auto traffic; bike trails; walkable neighborhoods; integrated housing; high density urban boundary zones; conservation areas; green belts; and much more — directly from Agenda 21.

Once the vision document is complete, the next step is to convert it into a Comprehensive land use plan, adopted by local elected officials in the form of an ordinance that is enforceable with fines and other penalties. The plans are necessarily so long and complex that few people ever read them, other than the professional planners and enforcement officials. Many, if not most, of these comprehensive plans incorporate many, if not most, of the codes developed by the International Codes Council. Here are some of the codes:

International Building Code

International Residential Code

International Fire Code

International Energy Conservation Code

International Private Sewage Disposal Code

International Mechanical Code

International Fuel Gas Code

International Wildland-Urban Interface Code

ICC Performance Code

International Existing Building Code

International Property Maintenance Code

International Zoning Code

International Green Construction Code

Here’s a sample of what to expect. From Chapter 2 of the International Green Construction Code:

CONSERVATION AREA. Land designated by the jurisdiction or by state or federal government, as a result of a community planning process, as appropriate for conservation from development because of the land possessing natural values important to the community including, but not limited to wildlife habitat, forest or other significant vegetation, steep slopes, ground water recharge area, riparian corridor or wetland.

DAYLIGHT SATURATION. The percentage of daytime hours throughout the year when not less than 28 foot-candles (300 lux) of natural light is provided at a height of 30 inches (762 mm) above the floor.

DEMAND RESPONSE, AUTOMATED (AUTO-DR). Fully Automated Demand Response initiated by a signal from a utility or other appropriate entity, providing fully-automated connectivity to customer energy end-use control strategies.

This is a tiny sample of the rules and regulations buried deep within the innocent-sounding comprehensive land use plans adopted by unaware local officials to achieve the politically-correct label of “sustainable community.”

These plans should be rejected, not simply because they arise from the United Nations, but because they infringe personal freedom and private property rights. The implementation of these comprehensive land use plans effectively transfers to government the right to dictate to individuals what kind of materials must be used in constructing their privately owned homes. The Auto-DR provision defined above actually gives government the right to dictate the temperature in your home, and the ability to enforce it.

This is madness! This is sustainable development! This is Agenda 21!

Local Tea Parties, 9.12 groups, and property rights organizations must learn about Agenda21, and exactly what their local visioning statements and local comprehensive land use plans contain. Many groups are forming study committees to analyze their local plans by section, and then report back to the entire group. This way, not every individual has to read the entire plan.

If this rush to oblivion is going to be stopped, it is up to private citizens to get informed, get involved, and help get into office only those people who truly respect the Constitution and the individual freedom it is supposed to guarantee.”

BCN Note:

Authur Lee, an American patriot and colonist in 1775 said, “The right of property is the guardian of every other right, and to deprive people of this, is in fact to deprive them of their liberty.”

Dan Peterson, Executive Director for the Coalition for Property Rights (CPR) said this and I close,  

“Is Agenda 21 the greatest threat to private property ownership, property rights, and liberty today?It could be. For years it has flown under the radar, and now urgently needs critical investigation, public exposure, and evaluation. One thing is certain; it has cost billions over the years and brought our nation under an enormous burden of regulation and restriction.”

The Bradley County Commission voting to implement International Building Codes is a scary game to play and sets the stage for a regional growth plan.

Not only are we conforming to
the United Nations Agenda 21 plan we are giving away our property rights as well as our sovereignty.

EPA set to garnish your wages for breaking regulations

In Agenda 21 on July 9, 2014 at 8:15 AM

EPA set to garnish your wages for breaking regulations

07/09/2014
0710 am

The EPA, Environmental Protection Agency, has announced that as of September 2014, it will have the unbridled ability to garnish your wages for environmental infractions.

If this seems odd to you then you had best speak up. Otherwise, breaking an EPA regulation will cost you plenty and they can take it via wage garnishment.

As per link below, According to The Washington Times, the agency announced the plan to enhance its purview last week in a notice in the Federal Register. The notice claimed that federal law allows the EPA to “garnish non-Federal wages to collect delinquent non-tax debts owed the United States without first obtaining a court order.” 

The notice went on to say that the EPA had fast-tracked the new rule, enabling it to take effect September 2. 

1. The EPA said the rule was not subject to review because it was not a “significant regulatory action.”

The EPA has claimed this new authority by citing the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996,  Section 31001(o), which gives all federal agencies the power to conduct administrative wage garnishment, provided that the agency allows for hearings at which debtors to challenge the amount or the terms of repayment schedule. 

.”The EPA also states that, “we view this as a noncontroversial action and anticipate no adverse comment.” 

“This direct final rule is effective September 2, 2014 without further notice unless EPA receives adverse comments by August 1, 2014.”

To contact the EPA on this subject please use one of these to post your comments. I was unable find an ability to comment online.

Submit your comments by one of the following methods:

1. Email: jones.anita@epa.gov.

2. Fax: (202) 565-2585.

3. Mail: OCFO-2014-0001; FRL-9910-14-OCFO FPPS c/o Anita Jones, OCFO/OFM/FPPS, Mailcode 2733R, Environmental Protection Agency, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460.

http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=EPA_FRDOC_0001-15898

The conservative Heritage Foundation claimed that the rule gives the EPA “unbridled discretion” over the process of challenging fines.  David Addington, group vice president for research at Heritage, told the Times that the rule not only puts the burden of proof on the debtor, rather than the agency, but also allows the EPA to decide whether a debtor even gets a chance to present a defense before picking whomever it chooses to serve as a hearing officer.

The amount of money the EPA has collected in fines has increased steadily since President Barack Obama took office. In 2012, the agency took in $252 million in fines, up from just $96 million in 2009. 

Also be conscious of the fact that a growth plan is probably in effect in your community. This Agenda 21 project gives the DOT, the EPA and  HUD full access to your community with all authority rendered to them via your locally elected representatives. 

It’s time to speak up and out about government overreach into your wallets by a truly oppressive regime.

Share this info and by all means comment on the EPA hotline and comment line expressing your distaste for this overreach. Then contact your elected representatives and tell them to stop the EPA from garnishing your wages and taking your hard earned money.

An example of how the EPA is reaching into the pockets of Americans can be seen in the example given in this link below. Just one story of where this could go. 

A 75,000 dollar a day fine placed on a man and his family for building a pond in his yard, a perceived violation of the Clean Water Act!

http://dailysignal.com/2014/07/03/epa-harasses-americans/

If silence falls on this, we are in for some serious tyranny by a federal agency that will only gain strength at each fine and garnishment levied.

Brymer Creek muddy, residents see clearly the impact of Sustainable Development on our environment.

Brymer Creek muddy again as residents see clearly the impact of Sustainable Development on our environment.

Once again the creeks are muddy as rural development progresses and the City of Cleveland presses on to build another Industrial Park in rural Cleveland Tennessee. Bradley County Tennessee has been dealt another heavy blow to the quality of our life.

The Chamber of Commerce and it’s many elected representatives that are pushing sustainable development  in our community need to hear from you about the steps they are taking that is leading to the corrosion of our city. Big  money, cronyism and greed are driving this decline in our quality of life.

Muddy runoff from an Industrial park is once again destroying our beautiful landscape and endangering the citizens of Bradley County Tennessee.

Poor inspections, careless contractors, speedy destruction and excavation of hundreds of acres of wooded land is promoting the  pollution of Brymer Creek.

The citizens of Bradley County have seen enough! Big Government forced upon us by hapless unelected bureaucrats must stop. It is time they listen to the citizenry.

Help save Brymer Creek, help save Bradley County! Stop the destruction of our land and its infrastructure.

Contact your Cleveland City Councilman,  Bradley County Commissioners, Chamber of Commerce, State Representative Kevin Brooks and Eric Watson, Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander, State Senator Mike Bell and Todd Gardenhire and Governor Bill Haslam.

TDEC has been contacted. Several elected officials are seeking information as we speak. More on this as the story unfolds.

Channel 12 News and the Cleveland Daily Banner have expressed a desire to cover this story soon.

Contact your elected and non elected reps and demand something be done and NOW!

Common Core: 30 years of progressive education reform being led by Bill Ayers

Common Core: 30 years of progressive education reform led by Bill Ayers

 Ayers and his fellow “reformers” are to Dewey what Lenin was to Marx. 

Marx was an intellectual who wished to undermine Western civilization. 

Lenin was a thug who sought to bring Marxist principles into full practice through propaganda, armed revolution, and sophisticated lies. 

Likewise, Dewey hated American liberty and individualism and wished to undermine them through socialist education. 

Ayers is Dewey’s less civilized, more “practically minded” disciple.

http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2013/02/american-education-rotting-the-country-from-the-inside-2571798.html

On the homefront:

In Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam with an assist from Achieve, Inc are the patsies being used locally to deliver the forbidden fruit to our children!”

Governor Bill Haslam is being handed the baton of progressive education called Common Core for the state of Tennessee. He has willingly, proudly and actively accepted this challenge. 

I doubt he knows or even cares to know Bill Ayers. But one thing is for sure he is assisting him at least indirectly in it’s implementation.

His past, at least formally, with Mayor Bloomberg of New York and Multi-Billionaire Bill Gates of Microsoft, a puppet of UNESCO and a huge catalyst and contributor of hundreds of millions to Common Core and it tenets at least shows he is a willing and knowledgable host, if not a conspiring puppet.

This evolvement of a pedagogical educational system which started with John Dewey has shaped into what we now call Common Core.

For more than 30 years this gradual ascent to Common Core has  come directly from the mind of terrorist, anti American, Anti Capitalist, Communist Bill Ayers and is now being passed to our children by willing Governors who will gladly take a few dollars to implement federal mandates for a complete overhaul of our school system.

The originator of this process was masterminded by John Dewey and completed by Bill Ayers and his proteges.

Today Bill Haslam, as others, are pushing the implementation of Common Core in Tennessee for a 500 million dollar bribe under the guises of RTTT and under the watchful eye of Achieve.

Governor Haslam, using his board position on Achieve, a leftist, big money think tank and lobby front for Common Core is definitely forging the path for our children’s minds in Tennessee. Many other Governors across the nation are also participating.

This is not just a benign program only being presented in our state and across the nation as a way to “assist” our states to perform better on standardized tests.

It is a deliberate and intentional step to take over the minds of our children and prepare them for thinking and functioning inside a global world where socialism and the needs of the collective are the accepted norm and are expected above and beyond their own needs thus completing the works of John Dewey and his disciple Bill Ayers.

A world where capitalism does not exist as a means of economic growth or stability. 

A world where all Americans are on a level playing field, no reward for high achievers, just a recognition that your ability to rise above others is a form of social injustice.

I recently stumbled upon this 30 or so year history while researching this takeover of our educational system by the Feds and communists. 

This artful and skillfully put together history was the creation  of Danette Clark, a blogger and further enhanced by this blog.

Many have asked me recently “Can you make a connection to Bill Ayers and Common Core and can you correlate that with the origins of Common Core?” I believe I have managed to do that.

The following is that link, that progression to what today is known as Common Core with assorted references to support these claims.

Our state and nation is at an extremely pivotal turning point. 

The acceptance of Common Core into our public schools by progressives, communists and globalist is completely unacceptable.

The Top down federal nationalism of our school system is a tragedy and this indoctrination called Common Core must be stopped. 

I believe we are one generation, one term, perhaps 4 to 10 years from being a Socialist country. The tool will be our children and the education they are now receiving.

The Socialists and Communists have perfected the tool, the program, the curriculum, the standards, the indoctrinating tool now evolved into and known as Common Core. 

The indoctrination program is underway and being implemented in our schools today.

I realize I may not convince you of this indoctrination with one blog, I do encourage you to take a few minutes, read it and make your own decisions based on this information. 

The decision to know it exists but not acknowledge it’s origins and intent is completely up to you. I prefer to look further than on the surface.

The History

The Coalition of Essential Schools (CES), a progressive education reform model rooted in the pedagogy of Paulo Freiere and John Dewey, was started by Theodore Sizer in 1984.

http://www.essentialschools.org/resources/69

CES was originally housed in Brown University. In 1993, the Annenberg Institute for School Reform was established at Brown, with Theodore Sizer as its first director. The institute built on the work of Sizer’s Coalition of Essential Schools with a mission to expand that work to schools across the country.

In 1996, the Annenberg Foundation launched the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) education initiative, which was led in part by Bill Ayers. At the time, Ayers was already working with a Coalition of Essential Schools affiliate organization in Chicago.

(The Wall Street Journal connects the dots.)

http://m.us.wsj.com/articles/a/SB122212856075765367?mg=reno64-wsj

Ayers appointed Obama as CAC board chairman and over the next few years, they invested millions into the expansion of Sizer’s CES schools.

http://mobile.wnd.com/2008/09/76022/

Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop also received Annenberg money to aid in transforming existing schools into CES member schools (also referred to as ‘small schools’, ‘smaller learning communities’, ’small autonomous schools’ and ‘schools within a school’). Ayers and his organization provided curriculum resources, hands-on professional development, and grant development.

(Even Jared Lee Loughner attended one of Bill Ayers “small school projects”)

http://mobile.wnd.com/2011/01/249429/

A total of $500 million was donated by Annenberg nationwide, providing the first big boost to the expansion of CES schools. The most recent boost is Common Core.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_Annenberg_Challenge

In between, CES schools received heavy funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Soros’ Open Society Institute, Carnegie Corporation, and through CSR, Title 1, and smaller learning community grants from the U.S. Department of Education.

http://www.gatesfoundation.org/What-We-Do/US-Program/College-Ready-Education

CES (likely under the advice of experienced community organizers, Barack Obama and Bill Ayers) recruited ACORN workers to manipulate and elbow their way onto local school councils and scream for reform. Chicago ACORN was paid to identify and train community members to become teachers in CES schools.

http://www.nationalledger.com/news-tech/the-barack-obama-william-ayers-145570.shtml

Acorn Woodland Elementary, Oakland, CA
Established in 2000 by ACORN and the Coalition of Essential Schools

Today, CES is a nationwide network of almost 3,000 schools, all of which are provided curriculum material, professional development training, and staff support through CES regional training centers and partner universities. CES uses the Annenberg Institute “as a forum for sharing resources and amassing political weight”. Read more about CES growth and structure below.

The Evidence

So with CES behind CSCOPE, and Linda Darling Hammond, a long time board member and disciple of CES schools, behind Common Core, does this mean Common Core is as bad as CSCOPE?

For those who don’t necessarily agree that one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch, how about several bad apples?

After reading Michelle Malkin’s recent article that places Achieve, Inc. behind Common Core, the dots finally began to connect.

http://michellemalkin.com/2013/03/01/rotten-to-the-core-part-iii-lessons-from-texas-and-the-growing-grassroots-revolt/

Linda Darling Hammond isn’t the only Common Core developer whose roots are firmly planted in the progressive agenda of the Coalition of Essential Schools.

Not only is Achieve, Inc. made up of several CES/Annenberg foot soldiers, it was literally established through an (unofficial) partnership of the National Governors Association and the Annenberg Institute.

(Our very own Governor Bill Haslam is on this board. The board has been involved all the way back to 1996. Coincidentally this progressive was also on the very liberal Mayor Bloombergs Coalition of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, but resigned in 2009 and joined the NRA….hypocritical and progressive? Another blog! Now onto Achieve, another progressive think tank with big money influence.)

http://www.achieve.org/our-board-directors

Here is the who and the how:

• Louis Gerstner, Jr., Chairman Emeritus of Achieve, Inc., was appointed to the first Board of Overseers of the Annenberg Institute for School Reform in 1995.  Remember, Theodore  Sizer, founder of CES schools, was Annenberg’s director at the time.

http://brown.edu/Administration/News_Bureau/1995-96/95-028.html

Gerstner and Tommy Thompson, former NGA Chairman and former governor of Wisconsin, called for and led the first National Education Summit in 1996 wherein Achieve, Inc. was created.

http://www.achieve.org/files/1996NationalEducationSummit.pdf

• Jeffrey Wadsworth, Achieve, Inc. board member, is president and CEO of Battelle Memorial Institute. In 2006, Battelle partnered with the Coalition of Essential Schools, Ohio State University, and KnowledgeWorks Foundation to create a new  CES school, Metro High School in Columbus, OH.

http://www.essentialschools.org/resources/484

• Michael Cohen, President of Achieve, Inc., wrote a report in 2001 recommending smaller learning communities and refers to the Coalition of Essential Schools as a program that has “a clear focus and purpose”.

Under Cohen, Achieve, Inc. has partnered with the Alliance for Excellent Education on several initiatives. The Alliance is led by former governor of West Virginia Bob Wise, who is an advisory committee member (alongside Linda Darling Hammond) of CES’s Bay Area Coalition for Equitable Schools.

http://www.cherrycommission.org/docs/Resources/Preparation/highschools.pdf

Linda Darling Hammond is an Alliance for Excellent Education governing board member.

Although Cohen is not specifically listed or named as a board member, his photo and bio can be found on the Alliance for Excellent Education website under “About the Alliance”.

http://www.all4ed.org/about_the_alliance/michael-cohen

Don’t forget to go here to see which CES-ers are behind CSCOPE.

http://danetteclark.wordpress.com/2013/03/03/more-proof-that-ces-a-nationwide-progressive-organization-launched-in-part-by-president-obama-is-behind-recent-controversy-in-texas-schools/

So there you have it — Common Core is the culmination of a 30 year old progressive education initiative still being driven by the ‘irrelevant’ Bill Ayers and implemented by Obama as America’s national standard in education.

http://www.ousd.k12.ca.us/site/default.aspx?PageType=3&ModuleInstanceID=335&ViewID=97313D1D-A9CF-4646-A5A5-0C355FBAC071&RenderLoc=0&FlexDataID=841&PageID=543

Here in Bill Ayers own words of his plans for our schools using Common Core and it tenets: “we should be looking at what we have complete access to, our schools, classrooms, communities and farms, If we want real change!”

Thrive 2055- 50 dangerous signs that a regional plan has been implemented in your community.

In Uncategorized on March 28, 2013 at 3:48 PM

50 dangerous signs identified within the Thrive 2055 regional growth plan.

Bradley County Tennessee and 15 other counties in 3 states within our mega region are busily preparing for a huge growth plan that will reduce our current system of representative government to a shadow government.

The many dangers signs are clearly visible but involve peeling back many layers to  be seen.

 Replacing our local government with a regional or quasi government run by globalists with a specific agenda to ultimately rob you of your property and personal rights, to me, is the most dangerous element within a regional growth plan.

With the acceptance of and our elected officials turning over their autonomy and ability to make decisions to a regional non representative government we in Bradley County and across the nation have seen our voice of representation at the local level go away and replaced.

Regionalism can be seen as a way to spread the cost of development across the region and cutting costs to some vested stakeholders.

The reality of a regional plan is a much darker picture under the surface.

We will see a transformation that will turn our community into a sea of rules and codes that will drown us in layers of new regulation.

Pay attention to these 50 danger signs and see if this is where you want our community to succumb.

Our community is actively changing and there are many who stand to benefit royally from their willing participation in this dangerous shift to a socialistic nirvana with the successful herding of the masses of population into a confined area with a wave of repression that we have never seen in modern day America.

Simply declaring regionalization as a non negative force, perhaps benign entity is naiveté defined. 

This thought pattern reflects to me that regionalism is not clearly understood and the mere fact that the many sinister components within this plan are being supported leads me to believe that our elected leaders are either compliant or do not fully understand it’s impact.

This undertaking either way will have a lifelong lasting effect on humans within our zone or region.

To see this and still support this is irresponsible and leads us to assume that our priorities are out of place and we have once again let the almighty dollar or federal handout direct our path.

Ponder this path and declare if this is where you want those who are leading us to take you, the taxpayer who will ultimately foot this huge bill.

1) We can assume a tremendous cost burden on ourselves and our children in the billions, perhaps trillions, into future generations. Ask a simple question, “What will it cost?” The answer will not readily be heard.

2) Our property rights will be in jeopardy by imposing stringent rules and code enforcement and many forced to leave by eminent domain or other means.

3) Our personal rights and choices will be restricted. The land of the free will come at a cost. Your choices will be made by the new regulations imposed upon you.

4) Expansive new land use regulations will strangle you with additional cost and headaches. Step outside these boundaries and you will surely feel the wrath. Just ask someone who has recently had it done to them.

5) New codes and regulations will be your reality. Non adherent inhabitants please move into the UGB, immediately.

6) Will be a shift of population to Urban Growth Boundaries into stack and pack housing with the increased crime and dereliction. The plan in some areas calls for 16 family units per acre. Not exactly a quality of life diamond.

7) Rural development will be discouraged with incentives to move toward the city center. If incentives fail, well you know, code enforcement.

8) Refusal or resistance to shift will mean differing codes will be enforced and accumulating fines will ensue forcing cash strapped farmers and rural dwellers to move and lose their properties. Few will be unable to survive the onslaught.

9) EPA, HUD and DOT and their plans for your property will be our new governing body. They come with their own set of rules and the regulations will compound making your survival in a sea of regulation impossible. Remember, no money given to our community comes without strings.

10) Our elected leaders will be reduced to figure heads with subsidies flowing steadily to persuade their vote. The near comatose state and deer in the headlights look would be comical if not so sad.

11) Rural areas will be claimed as wilderness areas under the control of federal government,  death zones established. Once inside this grasp, the fines will be heavy to either conform or move into the city. Also keep in mind, if you plan to move out of the area, you will just move into another region with it’s own unique regulation structure. This issue is not unique to our area, it is happening all over the world. Are you seeing the bigger picture yet?

12) Rural passes and permission slips will be issued to trespass or visit areas that were once yours. Your unique private property already has plans for it’s use. Just check out the Wilderness Projects already mapped out.

13) Roads and sewer systems will be left to crumble and living before displacement will be unbearable. Vacant and less traveled roads will be destined to rubble. Infrastructure dollars will be shifted inward to the UGB and the rural lands transformed to federal parks, activity centers and open space.

14) Your farm or the property will be government controlled or owned and  you, the former owner, will be given the option to either sale or produce what the government commands or take a small chunk of change or move out.  Have you heard of conservation easement? A dangerous tool of the globalist that are taking over our land.

15) Bikes will be your new choice of transportation and greenways and bike paths will replace roads and vehicles. 

16) Electricity will come at a premium and allocated to you from a defined use of pattern established by smart meter allocation with strict guidelines to stay within limitations. Your pattern of use established and a new pattern established to make you greener and more “sustainable!”

17) If fuel is available it will be at a premium and rationed with government vehicles and corporate farmers getting first dibs. Electric car “recharging” areas will pop up at local establishments within the Urban Growth Boundary.

18) Decision making of where your tax dollars will be spent will be in the hands of select NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) or appointed boards.

19) Self indulging, self serving corporatists and stakeholders will direct your tax dollars to their advantage. Many of these same people will be on the many appointed boards and councils set up that create the shadow government. The Chamber of Commerce a close ally and NGO of the United Nations will be directing this onslaught.

20) Stack and pack multi unit housing will pop up on every corner with freedom granted only to roam within your designated color zone or mega region. Have you ever watched the Hunger Games? Pretty close to our future.

21) Fuel restrictions on vehicles, mileage limitations, carbon taxes and fines levied. Tax on miles driven.  Little black boxes within your vehicles that will check your carbon output and upload that data to a central server and a tax or fine applied for that use.

22) Self regulating governess, loss of representation in government. State elected officials bought and paid for to implement changes within your zone. Our elected officials give the green light and leave all the decisions within that plan to bureaucrats. We have seen that locally as our Mayors have shifted that power to a foundation or regional board and our local guys knew nothing of it.

23) Power shift of decision making to NGOs and select bureaucrats and stakeholders with full power to implement. Doesn’t it sound awkward for those representatives of the people to just hand off all the work to a paid consultant group, council or board member? It’s happening now as you speak.

24) Coalition of World Business Council to make corporatism the norm with selective survival while rewarding failure. Big business is already driving the decision making under the direction of entities or NGOs like the Chamber of Commerce.

25) Community Development Block Grants CDBGs. Money with strings attributing to more regulation. This type of structure has brought out many who have plans to pad their own pockets.

26) Monsanto and Cargill controlling seeds and growth. If they control the seeds and ultimately the food, what else do they control, yes, you!

27) Food Councils setup to produce and grow locally with government assistance and direction our  regions food to fuel our food sheds. See the pattern being established here? Self sufficiency within our sector or region, which leads mento believe we are being herded into these mega regions for a bigger objective. Population control? Seperate or individual areas that are easily controlled? An isolation of the states?

28) Face lift grants to “make the community aesthetically pleasing with strict codes for development. Loads of cash and the rules
that go with it, after all, if we are getting billions should it at least look like it?

29) Control and decision making to EPA, HUD and DOT for growth planning. They are already placing their fingerprint, recently filing multi million dollar lawsuits against some of our local mom and pop  businesses, ie, Wright Brothers
Construction.

30) Deeper community debt, higher taxes and personal loss. Work permits to travel outside region boundaries. A few large corporate employers and very few jobs otherwise leaves you as a slave to corporatism.

31) A marriage to ICLEI with their many planning guidelines and connections to the United Nations, our soon to be International governing body with subtle yet solemn surrender of our sovereignty.

32) Strict Climate control penalties and fines. Restriction of heating and air comfort. If you harm the environment in any way, you will pay. Remember the recent lawsuits for cow dung, dust and milk spillage because the milk contain oils that are “not good for the environment?”

33) Oversight of the environment with stringent controls thereof. Mandatory solar or wind adaptation. Stiff fines for non compliance. An expensive alternative that leaves you no choice but to pack up and move to the city or urban area.

34) Transportation guidelines employed to rid our community of gas consuming vehicles. Bicycle rental pods all around and talk of bullet trains through your city.

35) Star Communities vying for approval inside a sustainable community. Again, jumping through hoops for a few dollars.

36) Ambient light and noise discipline in neighborhoods, multiple heavy fines. LEED lighting? Sound familiar? Perhaps we are already doing this!

37) Redevelopment of blighted areas, TIF projects, demolition of homes, initiation of “open spaces”, turning communities “green”, forced recycling.  300 homes in South Cleveland have been targeted and 12 others recently with houses already being taken even as I speak.

38) Churches supporting the UNs MDGs, Millenium Development Goals with paralyzation of our church leaders and a gradual prodding to accept sharia law into your community with the message of love, peace and hope. 

39) Seperate and equal governing councils per region. With full power to make all decisions within the Thrive 2055 plan.

40) Adoption of ICC codes. Yes International enforcement codes, already adopted and waiting in the wings.

41) Local Comprehensive plans drawn up, sent to locally elected officials for approval and authority handed off to bureaucrats like the Chamber of Commerce. Done!

42) Food Policy Centers within each region to define what is socially and environmentally acceptable for consumption.

43) Loathsome land use regulations and restrictions. PUD guidelines, aggressive annexation to engross and grow the Urban Growth Boundary.

44) Establishment of “food miles” to promote utilization of food sheds. Tracking what it means to get food to you within your region.

45) The promotion of community gardening to feed the collective with multi shopping options within your stack and pack dwelling unit. Locovores will be the new buzzword.

46) Small business closures and failures because of trends to protect large business with tax breaks and bailouts. Big corporation have the money and influence this giving you the disadvantage.

47) Shared project costs from city to city within the region. Increased burden on local budgets. Need a school in Georgia or Alabama?  Well, we have a big ole regional budget let’s pool together our tax dollars and send it to them. 

48) Shared school system and funds within region. Common Core initiation with Socialistic indoctrination overtones.

49) Code enforcement officers patrolling and prosecuting offenders like you and I, forcing us into compliance or lose our property. A societal emergency and policing system with collection of data to outer agencies such as Interpol. Initiation of NDAA, NIXEL to squelch the naysayers. Use of Drones for surveillance of your activity on your property with mega pixle picture uploads to only God knows who.

50) Environmental restraints dictating the length of grass, what you can grow on your property, garbage disposal, family gardens etc

This is not an all inclusive list but encompasses and provides a visual for our future under a regional reign.

You can easily see where our locally elected officials have gone awry. By giving their authority to these awkward sets of bureaucrats you can see our sovereignty float away. 

I have spoken to many locally elected officials and they overwhelmingly do not see that their simple vote of approval has placed us on this path to destruction. They have failed to look beyond the federal gifts of dollars and seen our future and what they have done. This is truly the saddest news.

Regionalism under the Thrive 2055 title will completely change the way we live and the financial future of our children. 

Speak out now against this bureaucratic takeover of our local and state governments.

Call your Mayors and elected representatives and tell them this is not what you want out future to look like.

Your silence on this issue is acceptance of these horrendous policies.

I believe this excerpt from the planners bible titled “Freedom of Choice” is a clear depiction of where we are headed

“People should be able to choose where they live and do business as long as they pay the identifiable costs of those choices and do not impose unaccounted for costs on other people or nature, now, or in the future.”

Please check out this video below by Don Casey, on the “Dangers of Regionalism” at a recent town hall meeting in Chattanooga Tennessee.

HB 15/SB 27- New bills exempt ethics disclosure of specific planning commission members

In Agenda 21 on January 14, 2013 at 8:53 AM

A new bill exempts ethics disclosure of specific county planning commission members; “Agenda 21” plot suspected

Just filed in the TN State legislature is a bill that exempts members appointed to specific county planning commissions from having to disclose any potential conflicts of interest to the State Ethics Commission. Besides this obvious and blatant attempt to remove any accountability or transparency, one has to ask “if they have nothing to hide, then why are they trying to hide their conflicts of interest?”

When one submits a bill such as this you have to ask the obvious question, why? Why are so many political bureaucrats attempting to hide conflicts of interest? One would think that if they are wanting to hide something, to keep it out of view, you would assume those involved stand to gain greatly from their decisions and they do not want anyone to know of it.

In otherwords, let’s say a planning commissioner owns a construction company and that person and his company are awarded a lucrative multi million dollar contract if only that commissioner pushes consensus and votes yes on his own back door deal.

Normally that would be a conflict of interest and that deal would be exposed and nullified because a voting member of a planning commission shouldn’t be able to fleece the taxpayer and vote in a sweet deal for him/her and their construction company.

The decision to hide this speaks volumes of the integrity of these representatives. Who is in their pocket in this deal? Who has access to them? Do they stand to benefit monetarily from many contracts? The possibilities are endless and the exemption of conflict of interest could mean the “good ole boy” club will get wealthy on the backs of the taxpayer and not a person will know anything about it.

The most curious part of this bill is that it only applies to the planning commission members in very specific counties within the bill sponsor’s district. Furthermore, some grassroots activists and policy experts are concerned this may be an attempt to sneak Agenda 21 into Tennessee.

The county planning commissions are trying to exempt from disclosure are Campbell, Fentress, Morgan, Pickett, Rhea, Roane, Scott.

One expert speaking on the condition of anonymity said “this looks like a back-door way to expand the Knox County / PlanET into other counties within the state via a UN Agenda 21 scheme without anyone knowing what is going on”.

UN Human Rights Day set for December 10th in Chattanooga TN

In Agenda 21 on December 1, 2012 at 4:02 PM

The flyer information below was just handed to me by someone that attended a parade in downtown Chattanooga this afternoon. The content and the manner in which it was distributed made my jaw drop and I had this look of amazement on my face.

Several years ago when I started warning people the UN was coming I was met with great resistance that I would dare utter those words in public. Once one of our local papers called the UN and asked them if they had any interest in our area and left the impression in an article the next day that I should be wearing an aluminum foil hat and locked up for my insanity. Today, every single warning U have cast has come to fruition and been proven with fact and substance.

Today, another warning has been met with fact. A celebration of the UN Declaration on Human Rights in downtown Chattanooga, one of the original documents created by the UN in 1948.

Let me repeat. Our involvement with the UN and surrendering our sovereignty to the UN will be our gravest mistake and it will eventually destroy every freedom we have in our country.

Every move we make, every decision we make will be under the complete control of an International body and it’s justice system and once under their control, our Constitution our freedoms and our sovereignty will mean nothing.

The United Nations is sliding into our country one evil step at a time. They are creeping into our great nation to destroy her. We have a very willing fake president and a state department who are more than willing to place the US on the altar as a sacrifice.

This event below is only the beginning. The UN essentially manipulating the tax payer and exploit the poor to provide food stamps is such a tragedy.

The idea that by international standards we treat our poor badly is a slap in the face to the many taxpayers, many of whom can’t even afford health insurance or groceries for their own family are giving to the poor everyday in the form of more taxes.

Pass this around, attend the meeting and see for your self the forseeable role the UN is going to have in our lives. It’s a socialistic future where the American Dream is no more and every one is equal and the wealth of our country is evenly distributed and we are all dependent on the government for our every need.
