Property Rights activist and ranger, Wayne Hage said, "Either you have the right to own property or you are property." The backbone of the plan was a call for "public/private partnerships."
Sustainable Development is not freedom. Not one of the three principles apply.

‘free trade’ public/private partnership ping
Hidden in plain sight.
Instead, it's done incrementally, a piece at a time, in an easy to disguise program here - a suggestion there.
Step by step...inch by inch...
My parents always detested Kissinger, but I never really knew why exactly. Now whenever I see Kissinger's quotes, I shudder.
That old Hegelian Dialect at work again.
You want roads to be toll roads controlled by foreign companies.
You neglect roads and bridges so that they eventually fail and/or fall into disrepair.
You take advantage of a serious failure/accident to further implement your end goal.
Surprise, surprise, surprise.
Add the 2007 EPA Scientific Report too
It is long. But in a nutshell, humans have basically been listed as contaminents. Not just morons that dump garbage on the ground. Our skin tissues.
That is pretty damn scary since a large population of these EPAers are SDS and have executive powers.
bumping for later read; ty for the ping, hedgie.
ty; will read later.
And with water. The estuaries have border greenways.
The EPA was Clinton’s vanguard of socialism and Agenda 21.
I don’t think Clinton was the architect of Agenda 21 (short script for 2010). I thought that was WAY before Clinton? Back in WW2 when Aryan was changed to European? And the Trusts and foundations were created to hide assets?
No he wasn’t. But he used the EPA to introduce Agenda 21, via the executive branch, through the recommendations of the ‘President’s Council on Sustainable Development’.
GW Bush has become a master of using the executive office to circumvent constitutional government.
>>>No he wasnt. But he used the EPA to introduce Agenda 21, via the executive branch, through the recommendations of the Presidents Council on Sustainable Development.
Don’t forget the NRPE either.
The link doesn’t work for me.
That sentence needs repeating often.
It didn’t work for me either—nor did the entire website.
But it works now!
The Principles of Freedom vs. Public/Private PartnershipsBy Tom DeWeese, American Policy Center
“Since 1994, under NAFTA, the U.S. trade deficit has soared and now approaches $1 trillion per year. The U.S. has lost some 1.5 million jobs and real wages in the U.S. have fallen significantly.”
NAFTA, under close examination appears to be little more than a redistribution of the wealth scheme. Profiting from it are a few select corporations, which get wealthy in their elite partnerships with government while American jobs, industry and wealth get redistributed to other nations.And this one:
PPPs are one of the reasons many people find they can no longer fight city hall. The private companies gain the power of government to do as they please - and the governments earn the independence of the companies, no longer needing to answer to voters. It's the perfect partnership. But it's not freedom.Arnie is on the verge of pushing some $50+ billion in "Public Private Partnerships" for Transportation and Flood Control programs in California. Hopefully, the electorate and our State legislators will wake up before that.
Such a process allows the private companies to be little more than government-sanctioned monopolies, answerable to no one. Their power is awesome and near absolute. Some call such policy corporatism. Another term would be corporate fascism.
That is not free enterprise. And it's not protecting the second principle of freedom - private property.
With inside information from its own Public/Private Partnership, Kansas City Southern Railroad (KCSR) has been able to grow overnight from a two-bit belt around Kansas City to controlling a 2,600-mile artery from Lazaro Cardenas to Kansas City, straight up the Trans Texas Corridor. KCSR has obtained the rail rights up the corridor. It is now a government-sanctioned monopoly.
Protected from competition, the railroad will set the costs and the shipping rules ...
FYI--Long but worthwhile.
You were struck by the same lines that I was.
“redistribution of wealth”
I just tried it and it’s still working.
If only more people could find these articles *interesting* we would have a government that would be too frightened to even try deception.
I agree. I keep thinking of more people to ping to the aticles; unfortunately they are the ones that already have an appreciation of the problems.
You missed “common good.” ;-)
This crappola and "Regionalism" go back to at least FDR's extended presidency, with the unconstitutional thrust inspired first by TR! (the other NY Roosevelt)
I cannot trust ANY GovernMental executive, either state, or national who cannot abide by "A nation of laws, rather than of men!" (regardless of political party)
“You missed common good. ;-)”
I wish we had more ideas on how to stop it.
A lazy, money hungry judiciary and frivolous lawsuits are driving these 501(c)tax-exempt corporations (i.e., “nonprofit” private mediation services) that are soon to be secret star chambers of judicial decisions so the lawyers can hide themselves away from accountability...
Thanks for posting this, I just read it on EnterStageright.com and was searching to see if it had been posted. Should we ping the usual “free trade” radicals here, and see what they have to say about this? Probably not, they only can defend their side with ridicule and insults.
One million? You have a source or is this your estimate?
Since NAFTA we've gained nearly 25 million jobs.
>Probably not, they only can defend their side with ridicule and insults.<
The losers technique for debating.
Trading an educated non criminal employee who has a $50 an hour job for a $7 an hr criminal employee who doesn’t speak English, with no medical, who is a drain on society due to his entire families lack of education. That’s not a good trade.
We added 25 million $7 hr jobs all filled by criminals? You have any back up or is this your guess?
How many illegals do we have in America today? 25 million at least. Add in the anchor babies and it probably goes to 35 million.
I don't know.
25 million at least. Add in the anchor babies and it probably goes to 35 million.
If you say so.
So you can prove that all 25 million jobs created since NAFTA went to illegals?
“So you can prove that all 25 million jobs created since NAFTA went to illegals?”
Are the 25 million illegals unemployed?
They wouldn’t be here if they were.
Quasi-slave labor is appealing to many employers.
Protected from competition, the railroad will set the costs and the shipping rules. And it will get very rich, no matter the quality of service. All because of whom its owner knows. Ayn Rand called it the power of pull. That is not free enterprise.Thanks again for the pings, Cal, BQ, and hedgie. Sorry if my ping is a repeat....but this ENTIRE article is a MUST READ!
At an April, 2007 meeting in Calgary, Canada, as part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership, government officials, business leaders and academics met to discuss redistributing Canada's water to Mexico and the U.S. Southwest.
Canada has water, lots of it, and the public/private partnerships of the SPP are swarming on it like locusts as they seek to drain it out of Canada's rivers and lakes and ship it to potential profit centers south of the Canadian border.
The Trans Texas Corridor will provide water pipelines for the shipping and PPPs will buy up the rights and dispose of the water as they see fit.
To expand on that, I would like to point out something troubling.
Many states are involved with sales (or ‘monetization’) of their toll roads.
The recent bridge collapse has had a ripple effect I’ve not seen anyone explore.
Our state, who is also involved with a toll road monetization project, has ordered review of all our bridges for safety.
Of course, our state has no money to fix these bridges.
The toll road monetization plans has non-compete clauses.
These non-compete clauses protects the sold roads from competition. Exactly like the railroad example you just posted.
My guess is, the recent bridge collapse will probably perminently shut down all the access roads except for the sold roads.
And, the road sales are for toll roads. That means, if more access is needed other than the already established roads, a toll will just go up on it.
