NFRA RESOLUTION OPPOSING UNITED NATIONS’ COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE PLANNING

In Agenda 21, Government on April 7, 2012 at 12:58 PM

This is a very important and urgent message to all Americans! The United Nations is using select NGOs to implement Agenda21 or sustainable development to socially, economically and environmentally change our natural sovereign state of Tennessee and the rest of the nation!

Even as preparation and early meetings for the Earth Summit 2012 are underway, the UN is making plans to forcefully and diabolically push Agenda 21 into every household in America and in 178 other countries across the globe!

Dialogue, recent as last week from the Earth Summit is that the UN intends to make a reenergized push to implement Agenda 21 in our country and are hinting at getting our elected officials to once again entertain signing a treaty or enact new legislation for further implementation!

We as local Bradley County citizens are seeing first hand and deliberately how these NGOs are using and convincing our locally elected officials to circumvent the Constitution and the will of the people! We must act now to stop this plan!

Below a very influential group has seen the coerciveness nature of the Comprehensive Plan and are calling them out! This strong letter below was not formed by me but was forwarded to me from a concerned elected official! This letter calls for us to stop the comprehensive plan but yet our plan moves forward with out a word of defiance from the majority of our locally elected officials!

NFRA RESOLUTION OPPOSING UNITED NATIONS’ COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE PLANNING

WHEREAS, the National Federation of Republican Assemblies recognizes that the pillars of freedom and liberty are life, liberty and property.

As such, we seek to identify those candidates that understand and support these same noble characteristics of our great nation and that it is the combination of these truths that makes America “exceptional”; and

WHEREAS, some little known facts about comprehensive land use planning, known as Agenda 21 include, but are not limited to, the following:

The UN’s Agenda 21 was revealed to the world at the Rio Earth Summit II in 1992;

Agenda 21 was signed into soft law in 1992 and requires only administrative approval and not legislative approval;

The UN’s Agenda 21 was granted administrative approval when President Clinton, through Executive Order, created the first President’s Council on Sustainable Development;

The President’s Council on Sustainable Development created the domestic plan known as “Sustainable America”;

Official non-Government Organizations known as NGOs are certified through the UN based on their compliance and willingness to institute UN created policies like Agenda 21 and the “Wildlands Project”.

Examples of NGOs include, but are not limited to: the Sierra Club, U.S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, APA-AMERICAN PLANNING ASSOCIATION and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability; formally known as the “International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives.”;

GATT, NAFTA and other trade agreements also contain components that are derivatives from the economic components of Agenda 21;
Income redistribution as a form of “economic justice” is a tool to be used by Agenda 21;

Agenda 21 is anti-property rights;

The terms “Sustainable Development”, “Smart Growth”, “Comprehensive Land Use Plan”, and “Sustainable Agriculture” are domestic equivalents of Agenda 21; and

The Global Biodiversity Assessment Report identifies private property ownership, single family homes, traditional agriculture, and consumerism as “unsustainable.”;

therefore be it
RESOLVED, that we, the National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA), oppose the nondomestic policies of Agenda 21 based on failure to recognize private property rights as one of America’s cornerstones of freedom and liberty;

be it further
RESOLVED, that Article one, Section ten of the Constitution prohibits any State or subordinate governmental body from contracting with nondomestic entities such as ICLEI;

and be it
RESOLVED, that the NFRA shall not endorse a candidate or elected official including the office of President that refuses to oppose the same.

The partnerships of the Chamber of Commerce, ICLEI and many other NGOs with the United Nations is truly un-American and unconstitutional and begs for Americans to pay attention as their sovereignty, property rights and our nations well being are at risk!

The severity of this situation grants that all Americans stand up to these aggressive socialists that are undermining the core of our nations welfare!

Please pass this information around to your patriotic friends and email lists! We are a nation under attack from within! All associations to these NGOs need to be made aware! Passive cooperation can no longer be tolerated!

Agenda 21: 40 Chapters of Sustainability

In Agenda 21 on March 22, 2012 at 12:15 PM

I thought it would be interesting to just show the softer gentler side of Agenda 21 that has emerged from the recent Rio2012 meetings on sustainable development! I don’t think anyone would say we don’t want cleaner air and water, that is a no brainer. The way that it will limit your freedoms and what it will force you to give up enforced by international bodies is the downside of making our environment more sustainable. We give up our sovereignty we don’t get to keep our freedoms, period! This is my beef in a nutshell with Agenda 21.

Read the short introduction to agenda 21 below and look at the title of the different chapters within Agenda 21 and you soon realize this is no small project and has huge implications and they are using our local governments to get it done!

Agenda 21

http://www.iisd.org/rio+5/agenda/agenda21.

This is from their website above! Now that they are detected and exposed they have to once again change their stripes!

Agenda 21 explains that population, consumption and technology are the primary driving forces of environmental change. It lays out what needs to be done to reduce wasteful and inefficient consumption patterns in some parts of the world while encouraging increased but sustainable development in others. It offers policies and programmes to achieve a sustainable balance between consumption, population and the Earth’s life-supporting capacity. It describes some of technologies and techniques that need to be developed to provide for human needs while carefully managing natural resources.

Agenda 21 provides options for combating degradation of the land, air and water, conserving forests and the diversity of species of life. It deals with poverty and excessive consumption, health and education, cities and farmers. There are roles for everyone: governments, business people, trade unions, scientists, teachers, indigenous people, women, youth and children. Agenda 21 does not shun business. It says that sustainable development is the way to reverse both poverty and environmental destruction.

We currently gauge the success of economic development mainly by the amount of money it produces. Accounting systems that measure the wealth of nations also need to count the full value of natural resources and the full cost of environmental degradation. The polluter should, in principle, bear the costs of pollution. To reduce the risk of causing damage, environmental assessment should be carried out before starting projects that carry the risk of adverse impacts. Governments should reduce or eliminate subsidies that are not consistent with sustainable development.

A major theme of Agenda 21 is the need to eradicate poverty by giving poor people more access to the resources they need to live sustainably. By adopting Agenda 21, industrialized countries recognized that they have a greater role in cleaning up the environment than poor nations, who produce relatively less pollution. The richer nations also promised more funding to help other nations develop in ways that have lower environmental impacts. Beyond funding, nations need help in building the expertise— the capacity— to plan and carry out sustainable development decisions. This will require the transfer of information and skills.

Agenda 21 calls on governments to adopt national strategies for sustainable development. These should be developed with wide participation, including non-government organizations and the public. Agenda 21 puts most of the responsibility for leading change on national governments, but says they need to work in a broad series of partnerships with international organizations, business, regional, state, provincial and local governments, non-governmental and citizens’ groups.

As Agenda 21 says, only a global partnership will ensure that all nations will have a safer and more prosperous future.

Community gives growth plan thumbs down, police called, tyranny reigns in Bradley County!

In Agenda 21, Government on March 20, 2012 at 7:24 AM

As I stood watching the endless line of bureaucrats file into the Cleveland Bradley Public Library with the familiar easel, rolled up maps, worn out suits and clip boards listening to the steady beat of size 12 leather hills tapping the library granite corridor floor like a desperate prisoner chiseling his way out of prison! Perhaps this was none of the above and it was simply the melodious thump of a well orchestrated drum line! I couldn’t help but sense a sinister coup was in full operation mode while unknowingly the ill-informed citizen lurks outside, quietly foiling their lonely existence. We were about to see the covert operation unfold right before our eyes. I was there and no one invited me!

I soon realized that the fate of our county was being handed to these bureaucrats of a greater scheme! One thing that was overwhelmingly missing from that long line of mostly self-appointed dignitaries was that there were only a few, if any “regular, Joe Schmo citizens” filing into the room!

They all say “well, I am a citizen too!”, “right?” Of course you are, but a citizen that has either been appointed to a board, a commission, a review panel or a growth panel yielding influence or persuasion about a multi billion dollar project no longer qualifies you as a “regular citizen” that is not connected to the steam roller that is running over the people and taking away their rights! Sorry, but that is how we roll! If you are on one of the many numerous boards or commissions that yield the opinion or vote, your presence in the room no longer qualified you as an unbiased citizen. I saw 3 and I was 1!

If not for a very alert informant, we could have missed this potential consensus party! Had the two other citizens not been informed when we were this would have been one big communal love fest orgy of planners and bureaucrats yielding their proverbial wands to each other for the ultimate compliment and certain approval!

Can you imagine how one-sided this meeting could have gone and been accepted if those darn citizens hadn’t gotten in the way and raised legitimate questions about property rights and our sovereignty? Whew!

I was a little hurt that I didn’t get a formal invite or email notification about this party! But hey, I’ve been left off invitation lists before! There was this one time while in DC Ronald Reagan left me off the guest list, never mind! Wasted trip, another blog! But you get the drift!

I am now the red-haired step child of the local leftist Socialistic, Democratic planning movement! You know, that guy with no date to the prom, sorta shy and not quite cute enough to score the prom queen, ok, lets save that for another blog too! I have been saying that alot lately! Maybe, I am under the spell of the planners in BC! Oh well, save that one………..for another…… Oh you know……..blog!

I guess when you invite a regular concerned citizen, you might get a few questions asked and God forbid that happen when consensus is trying to be obtained! How better to gain consensus than to make sure no citizens were at this perceived public meeting! Silly me! Maybe my expectations were too high! I consider myself a pretty alert and informed kinda guy! I was left out of the plans! I was left out! Wait! Dejavu! Prom all ov er again! You know that potential night with high expectations that is one unanswered proposal from wearing a tux, a bow tie and a silly grin with deteriorating lamb skin rotting away inside his wallet! They disguised this one well! They hid this one well!

They were almost successful pulling this meeting off without one uninvolved citizen that wouldn’t benefit from the implementation of this growth plan!

I strolled in behind the only other two citizens Karen and Dan and we sat among the modest crowd of Bradley County “Elite!” You know those people that only their momma could love! That was a joke! I can hear now ” and that Blogger called me ugly too!”

Meeting the other two citizens in the room was brief and we went to meeting the other “decision makers!” Lets see to look around the room. There is Commissioners Mel, Woods, Caywood, Rominger, Greg Dale and his associates, Mayor of Charleston, the usual group of Chamber of Commerce rulers, planners galore, old, young, past and present and in between, various suits with Clarion clipboards, Emily, chairmen of the planning commission, wives and girlfriends of those people, oh yeah and don’t forget the old grey haired lady on the front row that has the police on speed dial who happens to be on one of the planning commissions! (that’s another story for another blog) but you see the plan!

Notify every one but the people that will be affected by the plan who will ultimately be footing the bill with their hard earned tax dollars were in the room or so it seemed!

0915 approached and the crowd of 40 to 50 fully involved citizens filed to their seats! The intros were short and the slides were popping!

After a brief introduction by Greg Dale of consultants McBride Dale and Clarion he handed it off to his able bodied comrade, Emily!

The very first slide, reportedly, a compilation of the top desires of the different breakout tables from the last meeting on January 30th! You know, those things that concerned citizens would like to hear more about! Property rights, impending plan costs, not implementing the growth plan, new taxes! Those things that concerns the everyday struggling citizen!

Transportation!

Transportation?

Not having to drive your car everywhere, getting a bicycle and riding everywhere! More Greenways! Putting all of our house on a pin head and have your bank, grocery store dry cleaners and everything at the bottom of your high rise so we can cut down on Green house gases, electric outlets for electric car? Does this sound like something brought up by the concerned citizens of Bradley County! Give me a break!!! This is from a planners playbook and a cookie cutter recipe that is shown by our consultants all over the United States! There was no “new slide” made up for just Bradley County! I would bet and I bet there are slide presentations out there with the exact same things on it from the exact same consultant!

Infrastructure?

Sewers?

Quality of life?

The list went on and on! The crowd was complicit and the speaker lulling us into a deep sleep of acceptance, the planners drool was now pasted onto my shirt. The subliminal messages were streaming from the speaker system, the fresh scent of brewing coffee now lingered over the doughnuts in the back of the room. A complete whitewash, a steady current of blah blah blah was now all I could hear and the crowd of dignitaries were proud of the work their consultants had done on compiling the data!

What about property rights? Sleepy heads and partially confused men turned to me as if I had just awakened them! What about our property rights? A huge component was missing on your compiled data? Tables 7, 8 and 9 were all very concerned about property rights and not a single mention of it on your slides? Eminent domain, tearing down buildings, new land use regulations, building codes, cost, new taxes, decreasing urban sprawl, firing the consultants, devising our own plan, promoting the free market. Those are the things we were concerned about and none of them got in the board! Why not?

Mr Dale speaks up and gently nudges the speaker back as she is more or less yelling and very confrontational at this point!

Property rights! We are concerned about property rights. We will be putting together more data with that information in it! I essence, he told me these were manufactured cookie cutter slides and we didn’t put them on a new slide because frankly we only want to show you what we want you to see and take your half million or more fee to blow smoke right up your behinds!

Every slide was presented as if it was the first time the room had heard it! The speaker became more and more agitated ad the presentation went on and the questions kept pouring in!

At one point, Mr Dale, said to the 3 citizens in the room “are you going to let this meeting go on or are you going to keep asking questions?” The immediate response was “uh NO, we have questions!” Commissioner Caywood, much like Commissioner Woods in the last meeting chimed in against the people asking legitimate questions, he pipes in and says and I paraphrase “I came here to learn about this, I have a family, a business and I’m giving of my time to be here so citizens with legit questions, shut the heck up!” he went on to sat “Majority rules in America, in a democracy!” Let me correct you here Mr Caywood, Majority does rule in a democracy, but we are a Republic and every vote counts! We are not yet a colony once again under the rule of kings, close but not yet! Commissioner Woods, was silent this round of tyranny and attempts at squashing our first amendment rights! Somebody must have read her the constitution, you know the part where we can challenge our government to make sure they don’t get too big for their britches! Restraint is a good fit Commissioner, shows maturity!

The spirited banter intensified and just as our founding fathers began to smile, just like clock work, the partially blonde/grey haired old lady, just as the last time steps out into the hallway and fires up her cell phone and calls for police backup because the three unwelcome guests were “gettin rowdy!” The full court press to squelch the voice of the people was on and the “people were bobbing and weaving to counter the proverbial punch of a government run amuck!

Two policemen follow her into the room and she sits beside the familiar man just as before with a Cheshire grin that could have taken on the trophy for her kennel! Success! Escort them out please! They have spoken and we all know commoners don’t dare speak in the presence of royalty! Bow to me young man and your two disobedient and irreverent scribes! Fetch my coat, I must relieve myself of these swine!

The funny thing about calling the police and she soon realized was, they are and have been on the side of the people. This is constitutionally what a sherrif and his deputies are sworn to do

Fortunately, at least most of them are here to serve and protect the peoples rights! They tell me as I sauntered to the back of the room, ” We are not going to arrest anyone that challenges or asks questions of an elected official or appointed board in a public meeting!” They think it is hilarious that our local government wants to squash it’s peoples rights! The Sherrifs in this town have made it no secret that they are here to serve and protect the people, not be a strong arm for the representatives of government or the selfish desires of an old woman! Whatever this woman is trying to do here, this is not Chicago or DC! We are well represented by our law officers and they are watching out for our well being!

Old lady do as you please, it is your right to be tyrannical , but remember in America at least for now, is not against the law! The Constitution still gives me the right to peacefully address my government and hold them accountable for their actions! So lay off the 911 calls for dignity sakes! It makes you look so pretentious and smug!

As I said clearly in the meeting, I respect the uniform and the position, but I do not fear standing up and speaking up in a public meeting!

Public facilities?

Did I go to the same meeting? The meeting I went to was so bombarded with citizen concerns that they hardly had time to discuss any of the plans! Some of my high faluting friends tell me this is what you call a fix! Consensus! Where you stay on course regardless of the questions and concerns, then it looks like everyone is in agreement!

For real? Public facilities, bathrooms and a Tom Rowland Convention Center is the most pressing thing on the table? Really? We are paying these consultants to tell me the same thing they tell every community! In fact when I asked Greg Dale this question he said and again I’m paraphrasing, he said that many communities have the same concerns, thats why all these sound the same from community to community!

We have just called you out on your same old outdated slides and you want me to buy your spill and let you implement a growth plan that will tax me well into the next century and burden my great grand children! Are you kidding me?

The meeting came to a sudden halt and once again we were broken off into 3 groups and discussed bringing everyone into our Urban Growth boundary and decrease sprawl in the rural areas, give everybody a bike and tell them to walk on the greenway under the guidance of the EPA, HUD, UN and the
DOT!

The meeting like the others did not meet consensus or even get close! The meeting from my observation was a failure! We have a plan for growth that is being poorly presented by consultants that are highly overpaid and have a very sinister under belly to them! We have reporters on this issue and we are collaborating some very disturbing trends!

What we have here is big government trying to get bigger! We have our taxes going up as a result! We have a few in government who are overreaching in their powers!

A citizenry that is being bypassed by a group of bureaucrats that feel they know better and are being briskly tugged by the almighty dollar in the form of multiple federal grants!

We are doomed and we have the deck stacked against us! The people’s voice in Bradley County is no longer! The republic and what it stands for is diminishing by the assistane of planners in a very finance rich environment that are using the crutches of government to fulfill their edicts from DC!

It is a sad day for our country! Our representative form of government is the ruling word in our world. The hell with the people! They are just in the way?

Our founding fathers laid out the framework, the people enforce the constitution and government resets it’s own set of rules and yet tyranny prevails!

I’ll save this next thought for another blog!

HJR 587 passes, Brooks hands off to Bell in State Senate

In Uncategorized on March 16, 2012 at 8:09 AM

Just wanted to let you know that the Tennessee Legislature passed HJR587 today sponsored by Representative Kevin Brooks. It passed by a huge margin with a 72 to 23 vote.  

Senator Mike Bell will now take the ball as the sponsor of the Senate version. The next step is to get Mike Bells HB3572 passed. Give him a call and tell him to step out boldly and face what will certainly be a room full of giants!

PLEASE EVERYONE call Representative Brooks office and thank him for his hard work and dedication in getting this resolution passed. I knew eventually Representative Brooks would step up and he has! Let’s use his expertise now to get rid of some of the harmful bills.

We need to work hard to get bills with even more punch passed and to repeal or nullify bills on the books that are having negative affects on our property rights and state sovereignty.

We have already found one such bill.  Passed in 2009 during the 106th session.  SB1919. We are looking for more!

Here is list of those that voted Yes and those that voted No.

HJR0587 by Brooks K – FLOOR VOTE: AS AMENDED MOTION TO ADOPT 3/15/2012 
Passed
          Ayes……………………………………….72
          Nay………………………………………..23

Representatives voting aye:

Alexander, Brooks H, Brooks K, Butt, Campbell, Carr, Casada, Cobb, Coley, Curtiss, Dean, Dennis, Dunn, Elam, Eldridge, Evans, Faison, Floyd, Ford, Forgety, Gotto, Halford, Hall, Harrison, Hawk, Haynes, Hensley, Hill, Holt, Hurley, Johnson C, Johnson P, Keisling, Kernell, Lollar, Lundberg, Maggart, Marsh, Matheny, Matlock, McCormick, McDaniel, McDonald, McManus, Miller D, Montgomery, Niceley, Pitts, Pody, Powers, Ragan, Ramsey, Rich, Roach, Sanderson, Sargent, Sexton, Shepard, Shipley, Sparks, Swann, Tidwell, Todd, Watson, Weaver, White, Williams K, Williams R, Windle, Wirgau, Womick, Madam Speaker Harwell — 72.

Representatives voting nay:

Armstrong, Brown, Camper, Cooper, DeBerry L, Favors, Gilmore, Hardaway, Jones, Miller L, Moore, Naifeh, Odom, Parkinson, Pruitt, Richardson, Shaw, Sontany, Stewart, Tindell, Towns, Turner J, Turner M — 23.

It makes you wonder what in the world would make anyone vote NO on such a strong issue as getting the United Nations and ICLEI out of Tennessee! It is beyond me! To have any NOs on a sovereignty issue begs me to ask them with whom are they aligned? When they took that oath of office, to whom were they swearing their allegiance? I guess only time will tell!

HJR 587- Anti Agenda 21/ICLEI resolution passes another hurdle, on to floor today

In Agenda 21 on March 15, 2012 at 2:05 PM

HJR 587 jumps another hurdle on it’s way to final approval! Another vote will take place today, awaiting results! I know State Representative Kevin Brooks has been all over this resolution as it has gained greater than 30 sponsors in a short amount of time!

The United Nations Agenda 21 is being recognized as the evil plan that it is! In Bradley County we have in less than a year gone from “you are out of your minds” to a resolution being passed in the State Legislature to get it and ICLEI out of our community!

The RNC has made this effort their number one concern for 2012 and have also endorsed legislation to get the UN out of TN and the country! They were even as bold as to say that if you do not make a stand against Agenda 21 they would not endorse you for office next election! That is a very bold statement and has gained and spurred many bills and pieces of legislation to be created!

Our Bradley County,Cleveland City Mayor, city and county planners along with consultants McBride Dale and Clarion, commissioners and councilmen need to realize that their efforts beyond this date are futile. State and RNC legislation should be followed! We are done with our expensive and expansive growth plan and all the “green” efforts that are being implemented without the peoples approval!

We are no longer alone in this process! We now have teeth and we are asking our local leaders to jump on the bandwagon and stop looking beyond the will of the people! Stubbornness and thoughts of that’s the way we have always done things are no longer the status quo! At this point, you are alone and acting as if their are no stop gap measures in place. Continued action is irresponsible and possibly illegal. We keep hoping they will do the right thing, but we will see!

Listen to the sweetness of this resolution below sponsored by State Representative Kevin Brooks! It really is music to my ears and sends a definitive message to the local press that mocked us for daring to make this an issue long before any one knew about it. I’ll reserve my judgement for another day! The following resolution was created by a State Representative that dared to step out and act while others were hiding under mommas skirt tale too scared to stand up with the will of the people!

An email from Kevin Brooks!

HJR 587, by K. Brooks

A resolution relative to United Nations Agenda 21.
Whereas, the United Nations Agenda 21 is a COMPREHENSIVE PLAN of extreme environmentalism, social engineering and global political control that was initiated at the United Nations conference on Environmental and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992 and

Whereas, the United Nations Agenda 21 in being covertly pushed into local communities throughout the United States of America through the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) through local “sustainable development”, polices such as Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, and other “green or alternative” projects and

Whereas, the United nations Agenda 21 plan of radical so called “sustainable development” views the American way of life of private property ownership, single family homes, private car ownership and individual travel choices and privately owned farms all as destructive to the environment and

Whereas, according to the United nations Agenda 21 policy, social justice, is described as the right and opportunity of all people to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment which would be accomplished by socialist/communist redistribution of wealth, and

Whereas according to the United Nations Agenda 21 policy, national sovereignty is deemed a social injustice, now, therefore, be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the one hundred seventh general Assembly of the State of Tennessee, the Senate concurring that the general Assembly theat the General Assembly recognizes the destructive and insidious nature of United Nations Agenda 21 and hereby exposes to the public policy makers the dangerous intent of the plan.

Be it further resolved, that neither the United States government, nor any state or local government is legally bound by the United Nations Agenda 21 treaty in that it has never been endorsed by the United States Senate,

Be it further resolved, that the Federal government and State and Local governments across the country be well informed of the underlying harmful implications of implementation of United Nations Agenda 21 destructive strategies for “sustainable development” and we hereby endorse rejection of its radical policies and rejection of any grant monies attached to it.

Breathe in deeply Bradley County and the rest of Tennessee! We now have a representative that is willing to stand in the gap!

Next step, based on the recommendation of our own State Legislature let’s take our reps resolution and demand legally that the Regional, Comprehensive plan, the BCC 2035 Growth plan are dead in it’s tracks!

Let’s tell the consultants hired by ICLEI out of Chattanooga that are currently directing our local growth plan to go home! You are fired! We do not want you here no more! Your outdated, cookie cutter plan has already cost us too much money!

Mayors, commissioners, councilmen and the Chamber of Commerce you no longer legally have the right to keep implementing this Agenda 21 plan in our community!

We can develop our own growth plan! We do not need the United Nations, the Chamber of Commerce or a group of ICLEI led Consultants spending billions of our tax dollars on sustainable development and placing the burden on me, my grandchildren and beyond!

Agenda 21: Sally Absher TN State Executive Committeewoman speaks up about Agenda 21

In Agenda 21 on January 19, 2012 at 10:19 AM

It was only a matter of time before our politicians would finally see the light. The RNC, the GOP, select Democrats and State Executive Committeewoman Sally Absher are now speaking loudly and are talking about the dreaded Regional Growth Plan and it’s close ties to Agenda 21.

Also on board recently and sounding the alarm is Tn State Executive Committee Woman Peggy Lambert and State Senator Jim Summerfield!

On the flip side, the opposite is true in Bradley County and the region! Chattanooga/ICLEI/Recalled Mayor Ron Littlefield/Beth Jones/Bradley Planner Corey Divel/Mayor Gary Davis/Mayor Tom Rowland/State Representative Kevin Brooks and many others in Bradley County are still pushing the Agenda 21 Growth Plan as the “plan of all plans” despite warnings from within their own party!

Please stay tuned and read the letter below from Sally Absher! You will clearly see the line of demarcation that is continuing to divide our state! Some continue to move forward, while others like Sally, Peggy and Jim are attempting to halt it!

I can’t figure why the “powers that be”, the decision “makers and shakers” of this huge unconstitutional tax burdened, highly regulated, land grabbing growth project are still moving forward as fast as they can while their State Executives and the RNC are saying halt!

On the other hand, I believe I do understand! As a father of three, I think I am qualified to make this judgement call. They are acting as a child in a candy store wanting that one piece of candy they can’t have. In this case that one big federal grant, and they are lying on the floor, on their back and are kicking and screaming, “Daddy told me if I was a good boy, I could get that piece of candy or in this case a few measly million dollars of grant money, and I’m gonna lay here and resist till I get my way!” “Because the Mayors are saying its good for the local economy!!!”

It is obvious to me that special interest, lobbyist, the PPPs and the NGOs have got our politicians ear, not the parties that are representative of the people! This is the sadness of all this!

We are witnessing the slide of our political machine that is supposed to be representative of the people, melt off into the abyss! Our local, State and Federal bureaucrats have let the proverbial cheese fall off the cracker! The lust for money, the promise of power, greed and a misdirected plan has hijacked our local representatives and are unfortunately are influencing their decisions!

They are no longer representatives of the people but are minions, stooges, dare I say, “useful idiots” of an International Socialist engineering scheme that has captured and took over any decision making skills they may have had!

I feel sorry for the whole lot! Can you imagine where they are now! They have gone from, in a very short time of being the hero, the bringer (if that’s a word) home of the big piece of the pie to the persons who are now being held responsible for engineering the scheme that makes us a socialist nation with bigger plans for the eventual takeover of our country by a New World Order!

Now because of their poor leadership, people in their districts will soon be living in POD communities, stacked in little HUD houses, looking begrudgingly at the next scourge that may wipe out parts of the population so that we can be sustainable!

Because of these elected people, we are now living in highly regulated, annexed and expanding Urban Growth Development areas while assisting the UN in decreasing sprawl and living around uninhabital land reserves placed within a color zone!

We gotta annex so we can get those extra tax dollars from the ones we represent, you know!

In the meantime, we are witnessing the greatest loss of our freedom and sovereignty by land grabs and horrendous land use regulations of our time?

Can you imagine why they are not backing down after numerous calls from their leadership? It’s a pride thing now, we are in way too deep! Turning around now would mean they were right and I was wrong!

I believe honestly they would rather go to their grave knowing they destroyed our country than acknowledge that they were wrong! I see the quandry, I understand, I feel the pain, I really do! But it’s high time to do the right thing and reverse course! I understand feeling you are too deep into this diabolical international plan to turn tail now! But we must be realistic here!

I feel it is time to make it right and save face! I must either forge on or I must get slapped in the face with a big ole piece of humble pie!

Dont be that “useful idiot” too proud of this Regional project to ever save face. Its time to put on our big boy panties, suck it up, be a big man and admit to wrong doing and change course!

I can’t imagine a representative of the people continuing to fight till the last breath against cries from within their own party or from their constituency, but I imagine there is a few that will!

This house of deception is crumbling fast as more and more people are seeing it’s real intent! I would not personally want to be still holding the bag when it collapses!

Many lives are being directed into your imperfect storm! It’s time to guide them to safety! Let’s disassociate with ICLEI and shove off this International inspired growth plan, watch the free market take care of this growth thing all by it’s self with the best interest of the people in mind!

Don’t be that adult child that screams and pitches a fit long after they have been told “no!” Be the man or woman you were elected to be and represent the people!

Dear SEC Members, County Chairs, Young Republicans, College Republicans, and others,

First I would like to thank Peggy Lambert, our RNC Executive Committeewoman, for her report last Saturday in which she identified “the social engineering program known as Agenda 21” as one of the top issues for the RNC this year. This is a very complex topic, and there are many components to the UN’s Agenda 21, from education policy to restricting rural development to “smart growth” in our urban areas. But the two areas that impact citizens across the state are the policies that affect the rural areas, and urban areas of our counties. We have seen an explosion in “Comprehensive Plans” – some at the county level, some encompassing multiple counties or even extending across state lines, as with the Chattanooga area’s 16 County 40 Year Plan. It is up to us to dig beneath the surface, and expose the over-reach of government and the waste and abuse of tax dollars to support these programs. Please understand – I am all for conservation and being a good steward of the resources the Lord gave me. What I am against is restriction of personal property rights and government making decisions on where people can live, work, and how they can get around in their community.

I have attached two fact sheets that will quickly bring you up to speed on the basics, as well as a figure showing the state of Tennessee from the stimulated reserve and corridor map that Dr. Michael Coffman drew up based on the Global Biodiversity Assessment Report and the US and UNESCO Man and Biosphere Program (google these). What you need to know is that this is the end plan, unless we stop this now. As with most incremental plans, this won’t happen all at once, but ultimately, red areas will be completely off-limits to all human activity, yellow and green areas are limited use areas (agriculture, etc. – for now). All people will live inside the black dots on the map, in “stack ’em and pack ’em” high rise apartments. No lake houses. No mountain cabins. No suburbs. You can also search YouTube for the video “Agenda 21 for Dummies” – about 9 minutes long. It’s a little dated and the ending is a bit hokey, but it is a good introduction to some of the national figures who have been in this battle for the past 20 years.

This is a lot of information to toss to you at once. There are several good speakers on this topic across the state, so if you would like for someone to make a presentation to your GOP club or organization, please let me know and I will help you get that set up. Another thing to remember is that this is a non-partisan issue (or maybe it is a bi-partisan issue). George H.W. Bush signed the agreement at the Rio Conference in 1992; Bill Clinton created the President’s Council on Sustainability; Mayors and Governors of both parties embraced these programs in order to receive federal grant money, and Barack Obama (along with the EPA) is pushing the pedal to the metal as far as implementing this. EO 13575, which established the White House Rural Council. This should be of concern to everyone who lives in a county with rural areas. It will be to the GOP’s advantage to get out in front of this quickly, but don’t hesitate to try to educate democrats as well. You might want to check out Rosa Koire’s book “Behind the Green Mask: UN Agenda 21” available at Amazon for $14.37.

My apologies to the folks in the Chattanooga area who already received some of this information! Thanks for taking the time to learn a bit about this, and again, I urge you to do a search on the computer for “sustainable development” and your county or city. Or “comprehensive plan” and your county or city. You might be surprised by what you find!

PUD Standards and regulations: The proof is in the PUDding for Bradley Countians

In Uncategorized on January 6, 2012 at 5:51 AM

Corey Divel and company have suggested we implement PUD-Planned Unit Development Standards in Bradley County! I suggest we not do this! This is a very far reaching plan to further restrict your property rights and further regulate you into conformity of the big Green Monsters that enforce the many standards and regulations you will see below!

It was presented in an article recently as just a way to help us out, no big deal, just another program that Bradley County needs to bring us into the 21st Century! Hogwash! It is to make your life, your existence and way of life as restricted and regulated as can be!

Take a look at some of the construction, building codes and electrical regulations that will be placed on you! I have provided the links to a couple of other counties that have had this done to them!

We are quite successful doing our own thing in Bradley County. Why do we need this junk in our lives just to ultimately cost us more money and once again take a little more of our freedom away!

Regional planners considering PUD standards for the county
by DAVID DAVIS, Managing Editor 22 hrs ago | 206 views | 0  | 2  |  | 
Bradley County Regional Planning commissioners discussed the possibility of establishing Planned Unit Development standards in the county.

The purpose of a PUD is to provide flexible land use and design regulations and mixed uses and structures while the County Commission would retain absolute authority.

Planner Corey Divel said the only reason for establishing a PUD district would be for allowing for more flexibility, but he expressed reservation that a PUD could possibly be used to circumvent setback requirements.

The city has approved eight PUD developments, including Home Depot, Cleveland Towne Center and Spring Creek.

Planning Commission Chair Tony Young said the most likely places for a PUD in the county is along the Mouse Creek Corridor where sewer is available, which would make it subject to annexation by the city.

“Whatever is done is going to be very limited,” he said.

Based on the possibility of annexation, commissioners said they should base their standards on the city of Cleveland.

A subdivision that has been around since 2002 might finally be developed after going through plat revisions, bankruptcy and ownership changes.

Planning commissioners granted preliminary approval for Frontage Village on Elijah Way as a townhome subdivision owned by Ted Moss.

The 4.43-acre subdivision was first granted preliminary plat approval as Vista Village in April 2002. The 16-lot subdivision off Frontage Road again received preliminary plat approval in June 2004, subject to staff recommendations of a change in the road name. In February 2005, Bradley County commissioners approved changing the name from Vista Village Drive to Elijah Way. A month later, the subdivision was rezoned from Farm Agriculture Residential to R-2, low density single and multi-family residential.

The subdivision returned to the Planning Commission again in 2009 as a townhome subdivision with 28 units.

Commissioners also gave preliminary and final approval for Hidden Springs subdivision on Old Lower River Road located west of Interstate 75. The 4.77 acre subdivision, owned by Mitch Maloney, is laid out in seven lots for single family residences. The property is zoned FAR.

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!

GOVERNMENT:
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!
