How Wisconsin and Alabama just helped save the world
The Telegraph (UK) ^ | June 6 2012 | James Delingpole

Posted on 06/07/2012 9:35:26 AM PDT by djone

"Governor Scott Walker's victory in Wisconsin and an equally important but perhaps less well-publicised victory won in the Alabama house and senate over the UN's malign and insidious Agenda 21."

"Alabama became the first state to adopt a tough law protecting private property and due process by prohibiting any government involvement with or participation in a controversial United Nations scheme known as Agenda 21. Activists from across the political spectrum celebrated the measure’s approval as a significant victory against the UN “sustainability” plot, expressing hope that similar sovereignty-preserving measures would be adopted in other states as the nationwide battle heats up.

“What does it say when (ahem) backward Rednecks have to lead the country out of the darkness?”

####

It says that the puerile, utterly ignorant attempts by the condescending Northeastern and Hollywood elites, to paint flyover, white Christians, (yes particularly in the South), as stupid, backward, superstitious bumpkins was always a lie.

But we knew that.

I have long said that the old Confederacy is what may ultimately save America.

The Civil War was not just about Slavery- it was about the federal government telling states what they can do

IT was also about the Federal Governmen ttellign states they CAN NO leave “The Union” when they all signed on with the specific rules in place to secede from The Union if they wanted to.

So... imagine if instead of fighting about the federal government telling them what they could not buy slacves, they were fighting against the Federal Governemtn telling them they had to buy health insurance.

It says that except for segregation up until the 1960s, Alabama and the other rednecks have been more right about most everything else than any other part of the US.

A problem arises when the goals of the Agenda 21 are the same as those who oppose it.

You may have read that the Obama administration is trying to turn the Pacific Northwest into the biggest coal exporting area in the US and it is part of the Agenda 21, building multi-modal transportation corridors through rural areas to move people and cargo between international urban areas, ports and hubs.

The idea is to ship out America’s natural resources to developing countries, where the manufacturing will take place, rather than in the US. Part of the plan is to eliminate skilled labor jobs in the US and create more unskilled jobs, subsidized by the government.

So, the opponents of the Agenda 21 say that the opposition are part of the war on coal, but in reality the Obama administration and the Democrats are subsidizing the western sub-bituminous coal, which is mined on federal leased lands. The Democrat war on coal is only against privately owned coal mines on the East Coast.

City after city on the west coast has turned down these coal terminals, so they have changed their tactics and gone for the rural areas, where there is little local government oversight capable of fighting Goldman Sachs and Warren Buffet, which are the biggest partners with the Obama administration in this scheme to ship out the sub-bituminous coal that America doesn’t want, through our beautiful rural neighborhoods.

Thanks for the post, Blam.

Right over the state line in MS we have the clueless mayor of Ocean Springs.

I forgot to mention that these UN Agenda 21 multi-modal transportation projects are all called, Gateways. Do a search on Gateway terminal and take a look at the terminals around the world that are all, Gateways, all part of the Agenda 21.

Then look up Gateway 1 in Maine.

Amen, brother!

The South (old and new) is the last bastion of basic conservative Christian family values Americanism. I live in rural South Carolina and my neighbors actually like living in America

Perhaps a glimmer of hope in CA. San Diego and San Jose voters just sent a message on pension reform.

I totally agree. I said it before. I’m from Wisconsin and we just ROLLED over “da union thugs, da lefties and the Packers will roll over da Bears this fall”. Ok, I digress on that last one.

I guess we SHOWED them, huh? Tuesday’s victory for Gov. Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch was so rewarding and emphatic. Beat Barrett by a wider margin than in 2010.

All of us in Wisconsin - flyover country can eat cheese AND drink beer at the same time.

The great and beautiful state of Wisconsin has (partially) restored my faith in the Upper Midwest.

That entire area should be reliably, and staunchly conservative.

I don’t get it.....

The Empire Strikes Back: I say Aaron Rodgers and the Packers come back strong this year.

I’ve known a few rednecks. Never saw anything backward about ‘em. They’re just the sort of people I’d expect to lead the country away from darkness of a sissified socialistic nanny state.

I’ve seen Pennsylvania referred to as “Philadelphia on one end, Pittsburgh on the other end, and Alabama in between.”

I am not insulted by this.

My state has never been that liberal. It’s about a fifty-fifty thing for a long time. Bush barely lost the state in 2000 and 2004 both times by less than one percent of the total vote. Tommy Thompson was a very popular three-time gov. The libs rely on strong showings in Madison and Milwaukee. If Madison were its own state, Pubbies would be elected with much more frequency.
