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!

Hr 658: FAA Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2011, Use of drones on US Citizens

In Farmers, Government on February 14, 2012 at 8:08 AM

Voting for HR 658 in Tennessee

Aye TN-1 Roe, Phil [R]
Aye TN-2 Duncan, John [R]
Aye TN-3 Fleischmann, Chuck [R]
Aye TN-4 DesJarlais, Scott [R]
No TN-5 Cooper, Jim [D]
Aye TN-6 Black, Diane [R]
Aye TN-7 Blackburn, Marsha [R]
Aye TN-8 Fincher, Stephen [R]
No TN-9 Cohen, Steve [D]

Every single Republican in congress in our state has voted “yes” to this horrendous bill! HR 658! Giving the US the authority to fly 30,000 drones around the US!

They will be able to monitor every level of activity you will ever perform! 50 states and 30,000 drones that is 600 per state! Big states not as much coverage, small states that’s a drone just about for every 1 to 2 counties! Are you kidding me? 2 drones per county in states like Tennessee?

Think of the surveillance one of those suckers could reign down on the average citizen! The average flight time of one of them is around 50 hours! 2 days straight! 600 hundred drones per state, 50 hours per flight! That’s 30,000 hours of surveillance every two days, almost 600 surveillance hours per hour!

Why? Why must Our government be able to survey your private property 600 hours every hour that you exist? What information is so valuable that we must be watched this much! That little outhouse or storage building that you didn’t get that permit for? That garden that didn’t get the ok to sell those veggies at the end of your drive? For Gods sake this is what we used to kill Osama Bin Laden! Are we going to have them used against us when the stuff hits the fan?

Why did Comgressman Fleischmann and Dejarlais vote for this bill that will complement NDAA? What? Huh? NDAA? Yes! Perhaps this bill just passed while you were sleeping has a higher motive? Do we quietly stand by as our Congressmen lie to us once again and tell you this is a good thing? Do we turn our heads as we are once again held to someone else’s standard of what it means to be American? Do I wait for the rest of the world to say that we voted partisan to better protect you?

In Europe, the drones flying just got the ok to asssist the regulatory agencies to monitor farmers and their crops from abuses such as having hay stored openly on their property to feed the cattle and to keep track of the cattle! You know the US says now you must have your hay stored in bins to cut down on methane exposure!

Why must we watch as our government plots out your property with multiple thousands of hours of surveillance a day? What is it that is so interesting that must be recorded!! What is so divisive that HR 658 split right down party lines? I know some people will say, why are you getting so worked up over a little drone flying around your house? It is only the beginning folks, it’s one more freedom, one more liberty given away! It’s one more thing the government must do to a free society that takes it one step closer to not being a free society! I’m looking down the road a bit! That’s why it bugs me and if America continues to sleep and remain passive on these things, the America we know now in a few years we will not be able to recognize her! That’s why!

The deeper reason is the further eroding of your property rights! The continuous watching of big brother over your property to make sure you comply! A sad day indeed!

God forbid we continue to accept this behavior from our elected officials!

The FAA is also required under the bill to provide military, commercial and privately-owned drones with expanded access to U.S. airspace currently reserved for manned aircraft by Sept. 30, 2015. That means permitting unmanned drones controlled by remote operators on the ground to fly in the same airspace as airliners, cargo planes, business jets and private aircraft.

Currently, the FAA restricts drone use primarily to segregated blocks of military airspace, border patrols and about 300 public agencies and their private partners. Those public agencies are mainly restricted to flying small unmanned aircraft at low altitudes away from airports and urban centers.

Within nine months of the bill’s passage, the FAA is required to submit a plan on how to safely provide drones with expanded access.

If you decide to get a little sideways give your elected officials a respectful call and say very calmly! STOP THE MADNESS!!!

Human Settlements: UN’s vision for Bradley County

In Uncategorized on January 9, 2012 at 8:03 AM

We often take for granted our ability to own property, to have that special lot of land, that lakeside piece of heaven, the meadow swarming with wildlife! Aaaaaah! The peacefulness in those thoughts!

The United Nations issued this report to the UN Conference on Human Settlements where their members have planned out the vision for our Amercica in an Agenda 21 envisioned world.

Land, your land is truly an asset, an asset so valuable they see this land as what contributes to the rest of the worlds poverty, by our “wealth.” Our land ownership is social injustice! We, by owning land are keeping the wealth in the US and not sharing or playing well with others!

This is so sad, because they now have teamed with our own White House to destroy it one piece at a time. Our local Mayors have recieved marching orders to set this plan into action!

My next few posts are going to be about letting you know how they intend to take over your property rights one piece of land at a time!

Read this declaration by the UN and see what they are saying about your land! The openess surprises me, but not enough are fighting for their rights and they will soon see them destroyed one county at a time!

REPORT OF HABITAT:
UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCE
ON HUMAN SETTLEMENTS

Chapter II D.

Land

(Agenda item 10 (d))

Preamble

Land, because of its unique nature and the crucial role it plays in human settlements, 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. Social justice, urban renewal and development, the provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole.
Instead, the pattern of land use should be determined by the long-term interests of the community, especially since decisions on location of activities and therefore of specific land uses have a long-lasting effect on the pattern and structure of human settlements. Land is also a primary element of the natural and man-made environment and a crucial link in an often delicate balance. 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.
To exercise such control effectively, public authorities require detailed knowledge of the current patterns of use and tenure of land; appropriate legislation defining the boundaries of individual rights and public interest; and suitable instruments for assessing the value of land and transferring to the community, inter alia through taxation, the unearned increment resulting from changes in use, or public investment or decisions, or due to the general growth of the community.
Above all, Governments must have the political will to evolve and implement innovative and adequate urban and rural land policies, as a corner-stone of their efforts to improve the quality of life in human setttlements.
Recommendation D.1

Land resource management

Land is one of the most valuable natural resources and it must be used rationally. Public ownership or effective control of land in the public interest is the single most important means of improving the capacity of human settlements to absorb changes and movements in population, modifying their internal structure and achieving a more equitable distribution of the benefits of development whilst assuring that environmental impacts are considered.
LAND IS A SCARCE RESOURCE WHOSE MANAGEMENT SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO PUBLIC SURVEILLANCE OR CONTROL IN THE INTEREST OF THE NATION.
This applies in particular to land required for:
The extension and improvement of existing settlements, the development of new ones and, in general, the achievement of a more efficient network of human settlements;
The implementation of programmes of urban renewal and land-assembly schemes;
The provision of public shelter, infrastructure and services;
The preservation and improvement of valuable components of the man-made environment, such as historic sites and monuments and other areas of unique and aesthetic social and cultural value;
The protection and enhancement of the natural environment especially in sensitive areas of special geographic and ecological significance such as coastal regions and other areas subject to the impact of development, recreation and tourism activities.
Land is a natural resource fundamental to the economic, social and political development of peoples and therefore Governments must maintain full jurisdiction and exercise complete sovereignty over such land with a view to freely planning development of human settlements throughout the whole of the natural territory. This resource must not be the subject of restrictions imposed by foreign nations which enjoy the benefits while preventing its rational use.
In all occupied territories, changes in the demographic composition, or the transfer or uprooting of the native population, and the destruction of existing human settlements in these lands and/or the establishment of new settlements for intruders, is inadmissible. The heritage and national identity must be protected. Any policies that violate these principles must be condemned.
Recommendation D.2

Control of land use changes

Agricultural land, particularly on the periphery of urban areas, is an important national resource; without public control land is a prey to speculation and urban encroachment.
CHANGE IN THE USE OF LAND, ESPECIALLY FROM AGRICULTURAL TO URBAN, SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO PUBLIC CONTROL AND REGULATION.
Such control may be exercised through:
Zoning and land-use planning as a basic instrument of land policy in general and of control of land-use changes in particular;
Direct intervention, e.g. the creation of land reserves and land banks, purchase, compensated expropriation and/or pre-emption, acquisition of development rights, conditioned leasing of public and communal land, formation of public and mixed development enterprises;
Legal controls, e.g. compulsory registration, changes in administrative boundaries, development building and local permits, assembly and replotting;
Fiscal controls, e.g. property taxes, tax penalties and tax incentives;
A planned co-ordination between orderly urban development and the promotion and location of new developments, preserving agricultural land.
Recommendation D.3

Recapturing plus value

Excessive profits resulting from the increase in land value due to development and change in use are one of the principal causes of the concentration of wealth in private hands. Taxation should not be seen only as a source of revenue for the community but also as a powerful tool to encourage development of desirable locations, to exercise a controlling effect on the land market and to redistribute to the public at large the benefits of the unearned increase in land value.
THE UNEARNED INCREMENT RESULTING FROM THE RISE IN LAND VALUES RESULTING FROM CHANGE IN USE OF LAND, FROM PUBLIC INVESTMENT OR DECISION OR DUE TO THE GENERAL GROWTH OF THE COMMUNITY MUST BE SUBJECT TO APPROPRIATE RECAPTURE BY PUBLIC BODIES (THE COMMUNITY), UNLESS THE SITUATION CALLS FOR OTHER ADDITIONAL MEASURES SUCH AS NEW PATTERNS OF OWNERSHIP, THE GENERAL ACQUISITION OF LAND BY PUBLIC BODIES.
Specific ways and means include:
Levying of appropriate taxes, e.g. capital gains taxes, land taxes and betterment charges, and particularly taxes on unused or under-utilized land;
Periodic and frequent assessment of land values in and around cities, and determination of the rise in such values relative to the general level of prices;
Instituting development charges or permit fees and specifying the time-limit within which construction must start;
Adopting pricing and compensation policies relating to value of land prevailing at a specified time, rather than its commercial value at the time of acquisition by public authorities;
Leasing of publicly owned land in such a way that future increment which is not due to the efforts by the new user is kept by the community;
Assessment of land suitable for agricultural use which is in proximity of cities mainly at agricultural values.
Recommendation D.4

Public ownership

Public ownership of land cannot be an end in itself; it is justified in so far as it is exercised in favour of the common good rather than to protect the interests of the already privileged.
PUBLIC OWNERSHIP, TRANSITIONAL OR PERMANENT, SHOULD BE USED, WHEREVER APPROPRIATE, TO SECURE AND CONTROL AREAS OF URBAN EXPANSION AND PROTECTION; AND TO IMPLEMENT URBAN AND RURAL LAND REFORM PROCESSES, AND SUPPLY SERVICED LAND AT PRICE LEVELS WHICH CAN SECURE SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE PATTERNS OF DEVELOPMENT.
Special consideration should be given to:
Measures outlined in Recommendations D.2 and D.3 above;
Active public participation in land development;
Rational distribution of powers among various levels of government, including communal and local authorities, and an adequate system of financial support for land policy.
Recommendation D.5

Patterns of ownership

Many countries are undergoing a process of profound social transformation; a review and restructuring of the entire system os ownership rights is, in the majority of cases, essential to the accomplishment of new national objectives.
PAST PATTERNS OF OWNERSHIP RIGHTS SHOULD BE TRANSFORMED TO MATCH THE CHANGING NEEDS OF SOCIETY AND BY COLLECTIVELY BENEFICIAL.
Special attention should be paid to:
Redefinition of legal ownership including the rights of women and disadvantaged groups and usage rights for a variety of purposes;
Promoting land reform measures to bring ownership rights into conformity with the present and future needs of society;
Clear definition of public objectives and private ownership rights and duties which may vary with time and place;
Transitional arrangements to change ownership from traditional and customary patterns to new systems, especially in connexion with communal lands, whenever such patterns are no longer appropriate;
Methods for the separation of land ownership rights from development rights, the latter to be entrusted to a public authority;
Adoption of policies for long-term leasing of land;
The land rights of indigenous peoples so that their cultural and historical heritage is preserved.
Recommendation D.6

Increase in usable land

In view of the limited availability of land for human settlements and the need to prevent the continuing loss of valuable natural areas due to erosion, urban encroachment and other causes, efforts to conserve and reclaim for both agriculture and settlements without upsetting the ecological balance are imperative.
THE SUPPLY OF USABLE LAND SHOULD BE MAINTAINED BY ALL APPROPRIATE METHODS INCLUDING SOIL CONSERVATION, CONTROL OF DESERTIFICATION AND SALINATION, PREVENTION OF POLLUTION, AND USE OF LAND CAPABILITY ANALYSIS AND INCREASED BY LONG-TERM PROGRAMMES OF LAND RECLAMATION AND PRESERVATION.
Special attention should be paid to:
Land-fill, especially by using solid wastes in close proximity to human settlements, but without detriment to environment and geological conditions;
Control of soil erosion, e.g. through reforestation, flood control, flood plain management, changes in cultivation patterns and methods, and controls on indiscriminate grazing;
Control and reversal of desertification and salinization, and recuperation of fertile land from contamination by endemic disease;
Reclamation of water-logged areas in a manner that minimizes adverse environmental effects;
Application of new technologies such as those related to flood control, soil conservation and stabilization and irrigation;
Prevention of pollution as well as restoration of derelict or damaged land, control of fire and preservation of the environment from natural and man-made hazards;
Economizing land by fixing appropriate densities in areas where land is scarce or rich in agricultural value;
Proper land capability assessment programmes should be introduced at the local, regional and national levels so that land use allocation will benefit the community: and areas suited to long-term reclamation and preservation will be identified and appropriate action taken;
Incorporation of new land into settlements by provision of infrastructure;
Control of the location of human settlements in hazardous zones and important natural areas;
Expansion of agricultural lands with proper drainage.
Recommendation D.7

Information needs

Effective land use planning and control measures cannot be implemented unless the public and all levels of government have access to adequate information.
COMPREHENSIVE INFORMATION ON LAND CAPABILITY, CHARACTERISTICS, TENURE, USE AND LEGISLATION SHOULD BE COLLECTED AND CONSTANTLY UP-DATED SO THAT ALL CITIZENS AND LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT CAN BE GUIDED AS TO THE MOST BENEFICIAL LAND USE ALLOCATION AND CONTROL MEASURES.
This implies:
The establishment of a comprehensive information system involving all levels of government; and accessible to the public;
Topographic and cadastral surveys and assessment of land capabilities and current use, and periodic evaluations of the use of the land;
Simplification and updating of procedures for collection, analysis and distribution of relevant information in an accurate and comprehensive manner;
Introduction of new surveying and mapping technologies suitable to the conditions of the countries concerned;
Consolidation and effective use of existing or innovative legislation and instruments to implement land policies;
Development and use of methods for assessing economic, social and environmental impacts from proposed projects in a form useful to the public;
Consideration of land use characteristics including ecological tolerances and optimum utilization of land so as to minimize pollution, conserve energy, and protect and recover resources;
Undertake the necessary studies on precautions that can be taken to safeguard life and property in case of natural disaster.
