Sustainable Development--the "Why" behind Everything that is destroying America
American Policy Center ^ | September 16, 2009 | TCH

Posted on 09/16/2009 7:19:33 PM PDT by TCH

TEA Parties and "End the Fed" Protests cannot win back the Republic without this information!

Many Americans appear to be awakening from their slumber of apathy as government forces are making their move for total control of our lives. Massive TEA Party protests on April 15th, followed by more than 1000 again on Independence Day, show a growing movement of concerned, dedicated Americans. But there is a major component missing from those protests. There is a nearly universal lack of understanding of the issue of Sustainable Development and the dangers it poses to our liberty. Consequently, that issue is being left out of the protests.

Meanwhile, as thousands attend the TEA Parties and protest the Federal Reserve, taxes, and out of control federal government, inside their local city halls, international forces are busy turning the communities into little soviets.

I have been traveling the nation over the past few months sounding the alarm that we cannot win this battle to restore our Republic if we don’t understand that what we face is not a bunch of random issues -- but a complete agenda of control -- Sustainable Development. Cap N Trade, global warming, population control, gun control, open borders and illegal immigration, higher taxes, higher gas prices, refusal to drill American oil, education restructuring, international IDs, natural health supplement control, food control, farming "reform," control of private property, NAIS and UN Global Governance are all part of the Sustainable Development/Agenda 21 blueprint.

To that end, I am focusing this entire issue on Sustainable Development to give activists all the ammunition they need to fight back. I am also including a list of more than 500 cities that are currently enacting Sustainable Development policies.

http://www.iclei.org/index.php?id=1387&region=NA If this is happening in your town (and it is), I urge you to challenge your local city council and mayor to stop these polices. The battles now must be fought on the local level. Remove Sustainable Development from every community and policies out of the federal government will be neutralized. And only then can we be on our way to restoring the American Republic. ------ Tom DeWeese

Sustainable Development: The root of all our problems

In his book, Earth in the Balance, Al Gore warned that a "wrenching transformation" must take place to lead America away from the "horrors of the Industrial Revolution." The process to do that is called Sustainable Development and its’ roots can be traced back to a UN policy document called Agenda 21, adopted at the UN’s Earth Summit in 1992.

Sustainable Development calls for changing the very infrastructure of the nation, away from private ownership and control of property to nothing short of central planning of the entire economy -- often referred to as top-down control. Truly, Sustainable Development is designed to change our way of life.

In short, it’s all about wealth redistribution. Your wealth into a green rat hole.

During the Cold War, communists tried to get us to surrender our liberties and way of life for the wisdom of Karl Marx. Americans didn’t buy it.

But now, they have taken the same clap trap and wrapped it all in a nice green blanket, scaring us with horror stories about the human destruction of the environment -- and so we are now throwing our liberties on the bon fire like a good old fashioned book burning -- all in the name of protecting the planet.

It sounds so friendly. So meaningful. So urgent. But, the devastation to our liberty and way of life is the same as if Lenin ordered it.

We now have a new language invading our government at all levels. Old words with new meanings fill government policy papers. The typical city council meeting discusses "community development," "historic preservation," and "partnerships" between the city and private business.

Civic leaders organize community meetings run by "facilitators," as they outline a "vision" for the town, enforced by "consensus." No need for debate when you have consensus! People of great importance testify before congressional committees of the dire need for "social justice."

Free trade, social justice, consensus, global truth, partnerships, preservation, stakeholders, land use, environmental protection, development, diversity, visioning, open space, heritage, comprehensive planning, critical thinking, and community service are all part of our new language.

What are they really talking about? What mental pictures come to mind when those words are used? George Orwell realized that those who control language and manipulate key phrases can control policy.

The language is being changed and manipulated to quietly implement a very destructive policy. Whenever you see or hear these words, know that, in every case, they are defining one thing - the implementation of Sustainable Development.

Rather than good management of resources, Sustainable Development has come to mean denied use and resources locked away from human hands. In short, it has become a code word for an entire economic and social agenda.

I have spent most of the past 12 years studying every facet of this new political agenda which is fast becoming a revolution -- touching every aspect of our businesses, our public education system, our private property, our families and our individual lives.

Interestingly, it is not a Republican or Democrat issue. It’s not liberal or conservative. It is being implemented on a purely bipartisan basis. It is now the official policy of the United States, put in force by literally every department of the government. It is the official policy of every state government, and nearly every city, town and county in the nation.

But, I warn you, accepting the perception that Sustainable Development is simply good environmental stewardship is a serious and dangerous mistake.

So what is Sustainable Development? The Sustainablists insist that society be transformed into feudal-like governance by making nature the central organizing principle for our economy and society.

To achieve this, Sustainablist policy focuses on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control.

Keep in mind that America is the only country in the world based on the ideals of private property. But, private property is incompatible with the collectivist premise of Sustainable Development.

If you doubt that, then consider this quote from the report of the 1976 UN’s Habitat I conference which said: "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 principle instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore, contributes to social injustice."

According to Sustainablist doctrine, It is a social injustice for some to have prosperity if others do not. It is a social injustice to keep our borders closed. It is a social injustice for some to be bosses and others to be merely workers.

Social justice is a major premise of Sustainable Development. Another word for social justice, by the way, is Socialism. Karl Marx was the first to coin the phrase "social justice."

Some officials try to pretend that Sustainable Development is just a local effort to protect the environment -- just your local leaders putting together a local vision for the community. Then ask your local officials how it is possible that the exact language and tactics for implementation of Sustainable Development are being used in nearly every city around the globe from Lewiston, Maine to Singapore. Local indeed.

Sustainable Development is the process by which America is being reorganized around a central principle of state collectivism using the environment as bait.

The best way to understand what Sustainable Development actually is can be found by discovering what is NOT sustainable.

According to the UN’s Biodiversity Assessment Report, items for our everyday lives that are NOT sustainable include: Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paved and tarred roads, logging activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment (capitalism, free markets).

Maurice Strong, Secretary General of the UN’s Rio Earth Summit in 1992 said, ". .. Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class -- involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air-conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable."

Are you starting to see the pattern behind Cap and Trade, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and all of those commercials you’re forced to watch about the righteousness of Going Green? They are all part of the enforcement if Sustainable Development.

And one of the most destructive tools they use to force it on us is something called the "precautionary principle." That means that any activities that might threaten human health or the environment should be stopped -- even if no clear cause and effect relationship has been established -- and even if the potential threat is largely theoretical.

That makes it easy for any activist group to issue warnings by news release or questionable report and have those warnings quickly turned into public policy -- just in case.

Many are now finding non-elected regional governments and governing councils enforcing policy and regulations. As these policies are implemented, locally-elected officials are actually losing power and decision-making ability in their own communities. Most decisions are now being made behind the scenes in non-elected "sustainability councils" armed with truckloads of federal regulations, guidelines, and grant money.

The three Es

According to its authors, 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.

The Sustainablists insist that society be transformed into feudal-like governance by making Nature the central organizing principle for our economy and society. As such, every societal decision would first be questioned as to how it might effect the environment. To achieve this, Sustainablist policy focuses on three components; land use, education, and population control and reduction.

The Sustainable Development logo used in most literature on the subject contains three connecting circles labeled Social Equity; Economic Prosperity; and Ecological Integrity (known commonly as the 3 Es).

Social Equity

As stated, Sustainable Development’s Social Equity plank is based on a demand for "social justice." Today, the phrase is used throughout Sustainablist literature. The Sustainablist system is based on the principle that individuals must give up selfish wants for the needs of the common good, or the "community." How does this differ from Communism?

This is the same policy behind the push to eliminate our nation’s borders to allow the "migration" of those from other nations into the United States to share our individually-created wealth and our taxpayers-paid government social programs. Say the Sustainablists, "Justice and efficiency go hand in hand." "Borders," they say, "are unjust."

Under the Sustainablist system, private property is an evil that is used simply to create wealth for a few. So too, is business ownership. Instead, "every worker/person will be a direct capital owner." Property and businesses are to be kept in the name of the owner, keeping them responsible for taxes and other expenses, however control is in the hands of the "community." That policy is right out of the Socialist handbook.

Economic Prosperity

Sustainable Development’s economic policy is based on one overriding premise: that the wealth of the world was made at the expense of the poor. It dictates that, if the conditions of the poor are to be improved, wealth must first be taken from the rich. Consequently, Sustainable Development’s economic policy is based not on private enterprise but on public/private partnerships.

In order to give themselves an advantage over competition, some businesses -- particularly large corporations -- now find a great advantage in dealing directly with government, actively lobbying for legislation that will inundate smaller companies with regulations that they cannot possibly comply with or even keep up with. This government/big corporation back-scratching has always been a dangerous practice because economic power should be a positive check on government power, and vise versa. If the two should ever become combined, control of such massive power can lead only to tyranny. One of the best examples of this was the Italian model in the first half of the Twentieth Century under Mussolini’s Fascism.

Together, select business leaders who have agreed to help government impose Sustainablist green positions in their business policies, and officials at all levels of government are indeed merging the power of the economy with the force of government in Public/Private Partnerships on the local, state and federal levels.

As a result, Sustainable Development policy is redefining free trade to mean centralized global trade "freely" crossing (or eliminating) national borders. It definitely does not mean people and companies trading freely with each other. Its real effect is to redistribute American manufacturing, wealth, and jobs out of our borders and to lock away American natural resources. After the regulations have been put in place, literally destroying whole industries, new "green" industries created with federal grants bring newfound wealth to the "partners." This is what Sustainablists refer to as economic prosperity.

Ecological Integrity

"Nature has an integral set of different values (cultural, spiritual and material) where humans are one strand in nature’s web and all living creatures are considered equal. Therefore the natural way is the right way and human activities should be molded along nature’s rhythms." from the UN’s Biodiversity Treaty presented at the 1992 UN Earth Summit.

This quote lays down the ground rules for the entire Sustainable Development agenda. It says humans are nothing special -- just one strand in the nature of things or, put another way, humans are simply biological resources. Sustainablist policy is to oversee any issue in which man interacts with nature -- which, of course, is literally everything. And because the environment always comes first, there must be great restrictions over private property ownership and control. This is necessary, Sustainablists say, because humans only defile nature.

Under Sustainable Development there can be no concern over individual rights -- as we must all sacrifice for the sake of the environment. Individual human wants, needs, and desires are to be conformed to the views and dictates of social planners. The UN’s Commission on Global Governance said in its 1995 report: "Human activity... combined with unprecedented increases in human numbers... are impinging on the planet’s basic life support system. Action must be taken now to control the human activities that produce these risks"

Under Sustainable Development there can be no limited government, as advocated by our Founding Fathers, because, we are told, the real or perceived environmental crisis is too great. Maurice Strong, Chairman of the 1992 UN Earth Summit said: "A shift is necessary toward lifestyles less geared to environmentally-damaging consumption patterns. The shift will require a vast strengthening of the multilateral system, including the United Nations."

The politically based environmental movement provides Sustainablists camouflage as they work to transform the American systems of government, justice, and economics. It is a masterful mixture of socialism (with its top down control of the tools of the economy) and fascism (where property is owned in name only -- with no control). Sustainable Development is the worst of both the left and the right. It is not liberal, nor is it conservative. It is a new kind of tyranny that, if not stopped, will surely lead us to a new Dark Ages of pain and misery yet unknown to mankind.

FROM THE ART OF WAR

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

Bottomline: The majority of Americans do not know themselves, nor do they know their enemy.
They have finally picked-up the strong scent of the enemy (as he gets closer)
- but Americans still do not know their enemy.

The religion of mother earth.

Socialists, communists, globalists, U.N. puppets, fascists, tyrannists and pagans: all one and the same.

With prior decent knowledge of history, politics, law, religion, mythology, and philosophy, I set out last Nov. 8 researching the current state affairs. Since then, after spending countless hours on this site, wading through conspiracy theories, current politics, and the history of the world (as best I can at this point), it is clear to me that “sustainable development” and its relations is the issue.

Check out http://www.green-agenda.com for some good info.

From Planet of the Apes to The Matrix to many other films, books, and movements like “global warming”, a primary message we see pushed is that “humans are bad”. In my opinion, there is a reason for that.

Read the article. Scary.

Sir, I'm sorry but this is really a stretch in semantics here, almost like doing what the Left does regularly, making phrases and words sound intellectual so as to bandwagon the pseudo-intellectual set. Not to say these many dire environmental issues listed aren't tied together to extort humanity into a new feudalism, but please don't describe it with the simple concept of sustainable development being turned into some verbal bogeyman, "Sustainable Development."

Indeed the thermodynamic or economic concept of sustainable development can be seen as a totally conservative strategy, in that we (our nation, society, or humanity) can progress while being circumspect about our resources, i.e. sustainable development.

Maybe in the subject essay the euphemism, Sustainable Development, could just be replaced with the term Leftism.

It could indeed be seen as “a totally conservative strategy”, were it not already defined by leftists as something different. Research the term “sustainable development”. It already has a definition which does in fact seem to tie “these many dire environmental issues...to a new feudalism.”

I quit a good-paying job in state government because I got tired of listening to all the paeans to “sustainability”—and judging all our actions by whether or not they met that criteria. It is a spiderweb of crap that extends from EPA to all state and local government. It is truly antithetical to the Constitution and classic American civic principles. And the whole concept is totally unworkable in the face of the way our economy is organized today. It is like hippies moving “back to the land” in the 70’s. So many people just go along with the starry-eyed young idealists because they know it will never happen. But then comes Obama, who may actually believe in it! And his actions are consistent, because the only way it will ever happen is in a dictatorship. Think of Borat’s home village!

I disagree with your assessment. I do not think this a semantic exercise.

Those intent on global domination have written a broad plan: Man In the Biosphere. The broad plan has its principle goals: Agenda 21. They have a vehicle to carry that goal: Sustainable Development.

They have provided us the details, including what legal framework must be erected to enforce the plan. They have left their calling card throughout our institutions, via a new lexicon of words, so to hide what we all inherently know is the poison of socialism.

The problem is that you, and others, see the word “sustainable development” and THINK “conserve resources”...

BUT the AUTHORS of the plan, the ONLY ones that may interpret the meaning of their words, see the word “sustainable development” and KNOW that it means “global socialism” through the accelerated denial of private property.

Take a look at the growing number of “World Heritage” sites, and “Biosphere Reserves”... Investigate the increasing amount of land confiscated by the federal government. Look at wetlands provisions and wildlife corridors, the clean water restoration act, the food safety act, etc. Read the new building codes, and environmental laws that are being promulgated. Search the curriculum of our schools and colleges. Even our grocery stores and shopping malls carry the water of these change agents, using advertising to convey to us, and more importantly to our children, the central organizing principle. Everywhere one may look, the fingerprint of a centralized control married to environmentalism is evident... AND the guiding philosophy is consistently “sustainability.”

There is a lot more to this than you may be aware... a pseudo religious aspect based in New Age philosophy. If you search, you will discover that many corporate leaders have received “trainings” in New Age-centered “human potential” programs... all of which possess some aspect of this mother earth philosophy. Many have made such “training” a requirement for their high level employees. The same indoctrination is also present among many teachers, etc. I know because I witnessed it with my own eyes. I met many executives from major companies who were caught up in this nonsense. I saw the lists of hundreds of others, whom I never met... and knew of the general plans to bring as many intellectuals and influential leaders of business and policy making into the fold.

It is no surprise to me how fast this “sustainability” movement has spread. The entire construct is diabolical in nature, which explains how so many seemingly unrelated parts easily coalesce into the whole. We are facing something far more powerful than we may be willing to admit at this time.

I agree, but I call the enemy Marxism. “Leftism” is merely one more station stop on the Marxist train. The final destination has always been: COMMUNISM!

Also...I agree with you that the “Green” movement is merely one symptom of many that is caused by the disease of Marxism. There is the Marxist corruption of the schools, media, film, the arts, the philanthropic foundations, and nearly all of the government except the military.

Marxism is our nation's **most** serious threat, and as ResistorSister pointed out in her post few conservatives understand that this is the enemy. Instead they are wrapped up in fighting the legislative issue of the day. They continue to send their kids into the Marxist dominated schools, and consistently fail to take the actions, and provide the conservative ( private) alternatives that would shut down the Marxist's ability to function.

Great response! You mention “advertising” (of course the whole issue runs very deep and through all society): I don’t know how long the commercial has been running because I watch very little T.V., but while watching the Packers game last Sunday with the kids a commercial was played with a “green car” driving across the earth towing the sun behind it. I recognized the meaning behind the commercial about 2 seconds into it and had to explain to my kids (who told me they like the colorful commercial) that it was about “gaia”/mother earth, pagan/new age religions, and brainwashing.

For 10 years rural Americans were fighting the sustainable development fascists. Hardly anyone outside of rural America paid attention, including conservatives. Now that this monster is standing over you and breathing down your neck, you’re noticing. As they say, better late than never.

Welcome to the war rural America has been fighting since Clinton appointed that crypto-Nazi Bruce Babbitt as head of the fascist Interior Department.

Tom DeWeese has been on the frontline fighting these eco-fascists. Listen to what he says. If the fascists pushing their new world order Teutonic nature worshiping cult haven’t infiltrated your community, they will arrive soon.

Sen. Inhofe is also our good friend and ally, and he’s done a lot to expose these thieving federal fascists. Read his senate floor speeches.

US District Judge Lawrence Zatkoff is also one of our friends who believes in private property. Read his decision in the Rapanos case if you want to see how a constitutional judge reasons and thwarts the federal fascists.

Every member of the Sierra Club is your enemy. Every plan to implement so-called sustainable development is a plan to steal your property and enslave you.

Welcome to the war.

“Maybe in the subject essay the euphemism, Sustainable Development, could just be replaced with the term Leftism.”

Why?

Fascism hides under many names. Sustainable development is one of them. Sustainable development is not some cuddly bunny movement. It comes straight from Germany’s fascist past and its Teutonic nature worship cult. It’s goal is enslavement of people and theft of property.

For you to see sustainable development as a “conservative” strategy tells me that you’re either a troll or buried under piles of ignorance. Show me one community that has enacted “sustainable development” ordinances that has not in some way restricted the use of public and private property.

One of our younger relatives gave up being a chef in the PNW because of this sustainable bs. He was a semi brainwashed greenie until this bs of sustained/sustainable resources came along.

The last restaurant he worked at had great contracts with ranchers, professional fishers and large scale local gardners. So they were able to offer real food like Heirloom tomatoes, Heirloom pork, wild game raised on big ranches and of course line caught salmon and sturgeon. Real food that looked like what our parents and grandparents used to eat with great tastes with minimal seasoning of maybe pepper and sea salt. Real crabs instead of the pseudo crab that is sold in our grocery stores and many cafes.

The fanatics behind the Sustainable Sources would make something like eating Wild Salmon an evil act and push farmed fish instead of wild salmon or what a few years ago would be a trash fish that had no real market.

He left as he grew tired of some telling basically what to serve on their menus. His boss/restaurant owner gave up this year and moved back to the SE.

My wife and I love to vacation near the ocean, and we love fresh caught real seafood. If we go into a restaurant we have been at before, we will leave when we see a menu stating the restaurant is proud to use Sustainable Resources.

“Every member of the Sierra Club is your enemy. Every plan to implement so-called sustainable development is a plan to steal your property and enslave you.”

Then, everytime we buy and consume or use a so called sustainable resource, we are funding these bastards to take away more of our freedoms.

I think what Grampa Dave means is that when we buy products from companies that support this eco-nonsense (most of these companies donate a portion of their profits to World Wildlife Fund, Sierra Club and other such “green” eco-Nazi groups)we help fund the agenda of our enemies.

I know that it is difficult to avoid purchasing such products, as many companies cave-in to this extortion so to protect their own free-market interests from the eco-terrorists. Just as it is difficult to find “Made in USA” products, as “Made in China” has become ubiquitous.

The world is becoming increasingly hostile to common sense.

I appreciate your analysis, TCH.

At that period, myself and other good people spent fortunes and guts holding back the eco-fascists while most so-called conservatives were sitting on their fat asses and doing nothing to help. I’d go to a local townhall meeting and there would be six marxist hippies screaming for government control of private property, and there wouldn’t be a single conservative objecting.

How do you think we got an area that votes 75% for conservatives in national elections, while that same area has a county council that passes an ordinance forbidding tree cutting on private property??!!??

It’s because so-called conservatives are too damn lazy to get off their fat asses and show up at a local townhall meeting.

So, no, I don’t know what Grampa Dave meant by his comments. He’s welcome to explain himself....

SD, Just a heads up whenever you see a restaurant, sea food merchant, so called green grocer, clothing vendor with the code words “We use Sustainable Resources”. You are about to deal with someone or a company in bed with the envirals.

TCH summarizes my feelings very well: “I think what Grampa Dave means is that when we buy products from companies that support this eco-nonsense (most of these companies donate a portion of their profits to World Wildlife Fund, Sierra Club and other such “green” eco-Nazi groups)we help fund the agenda of our enemies.

Maybe Sierra Wasp can share some of his wisdom from observing these special relationships, like the so called white water folks have with the envirals, the water level control people and often the only access to a river in certain areas.

When confronted by someone on the "other side", I find myself tethered by their threat to play the race card, or the Capitalist charge or the elitist label. I want to tell them that the main thing I object to in America today is not any particular bill or legislation or organization. It is the absolute rejection of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY! Three, four decades ago, a person was answerable to his failures, his downfall. Help was available, but it was a very humble person who pursued it.

I know this sounds harsh. But, when you tell a large part of the population that we have help (a lot of help) waiting for you, just in case you find yourselves in need of it, we ENCOURAGE those people to consider that help as just one of the options open to them.

Actually, Sierra Wasp has been dealing with these enviral whacko issues since the late 1800’s.:)

I have pinged Liz re the issue of danger of non profits in general and to see if she has any data on the Sustainability issues.

Thanks for the heads-up, Dave.

Sustainable Development----the politically based enviro movement provides Sustainablists camouflage as they work to transform the American systems of government, justice, and economics. It is a masterful mixture of socialism (top down control of the tools of the economy) and fascism (property is owned in name only -- with no control).

ACTION NOW We need to put these Sustainable Development tax-exempt, non-profit groups under the IRS microscope.

DO THIS : Contact the IRS Criminal Investigations Division (IRS-CI) (CALLERS CAN REMAIN ANONYMOUS)
> To report suspected tax fraud activity, Tele toll-free 1-800-829-0433
> To report suspected tax law violations, Tele toll-free 1-800-829-0433

MISSION STATEMENT The IRS-CI mission is to follow the money. No matter the source, all income earned, both legal and illegal, has the potential of becoming involved in crimes. The IRS-CI utilizes the broad authority of Title 26 and 31, tax, currency reporting and forfeiture and Title 18 money laundering, conspiracy and forfeiture to identify, investigate and prosecute the most significant tax, currency and money laundering offenders; and to pursue the assets of those offenders both domestically and internationally for criminal tax and asset forfeiture purposes.

Contact the IRS when you suspect :
> Abusive Tax-exempt Non-profit Schemes
> Unscrupulous Tax Return Preparers
> Frivolous filers/non-filers who challenge the constitutionality of the American tax system
> Income Tax Evasion
> Failure to File
> Filing False Returns
> Frivolous filers/non-filers who challenge the constitutionality of the American tax system
> Employment Tax Cases
> Claims for Fraudulent Refunds
> Illegal Source Financial Crimes (Money obtained illegally or through fraud)
> Narcotics Related Financial Crimes
> Money Laundering

The IRS is also interested in leadership and members of groups involved in tax, money laundering, or currency violations and persons engaged in fundraising activities using tax exempt organizations, and complex, extensive or convoluted financial transactions.

Shortcut bar for Bold, Italics, Underlining, Pictures, and hyperlinks

If you use a windows computer then you can download for free a little program called "texter" from lifehacker.com which will auto-type anything you put into using hotkeys that you define. This way you only have to type the html once, put it into a little window, add a key combination and then use that shortcut every time after that.

Thanks so much for posting this. WA state is far along in the “sustainable development” movement and they are trying to make my county (Whatcom County) and Spokane County the precedents for the rest of the state. Right now, we are in the midst of a fight to stop the down zoning of much of the best commercial property outside of the city limits and extremely restrictive regulations on farms and rural property ownners, all in the name of the “clean water act”. We have lawyers from property rights groups in our county regularly, looking for the right case to take to the Supreme Court. First they have to find someone who is willing to take the risk, though.

In nearby Bellingham, the school district has started one of these so-called “global schools” that are supposed to train children to live in a global community. The parents are not given a choice, if they live in that area, their kids must attend that school or make other arrangements. The teachers at the global school spend their summers traveling the world at the expense of the school district.

If you focus on one tree, you risk losing sight of the forest. Any particular leftist label can easily be abandoned (i.e. thrown under the bus), without impeding the leftist destruction of everything good and decent about western civilization.

There is no "one" particular leftist program, or policy, or group, or agenda item, that is any more or less diabolical or supreme than all the others. They all share the common enemies of individual freedom and constitutional rights, but they are loosely connected by a wide variety of mind-mush studies of a wide variety of collectivist ideas and characters.

Their intention is to inflict death by a thousand cuts to freedom, and they fully intend to destroy our constitutional republic. They understand only power, and mainly the power to confiscate other people's wealth (since they don't produce any themselves).

I just call them all communists; it's simple and it's appropriate. You could just as easily call them marxists, collectivists, anarchists, Democrats, or any one of dozens of labels. That's just personal preference.

In our time, we just have to expose them as destructive elements and groups, and educate enough of the voting populace to defeat them, either at the ballot box, or on the battlefields.

"This is not my government and he is not my president".

No democracy can long endure a tyrannical majority or defiant minority.

Today, the president's army is substantially dependent on the cooperation of local militias. Should several of the states determine to resist federalization through an unconventional interpretation of the 10th Amendment, the federal executive would most probably blink. Liberals and socialist are assertive upon their bloody pulpits but wholly reticent to sacrifice themselves.

"This is not my government and he is not my president".

To whom is this fine quote attributable? Who are the local militias? If they exist and were to "bust a move," would it be deemed to be "taking the law into their own hands?"

The conventional answers to these questions are "of course they are," and even using the terms "defiant,""militias,""unconventional" and even "10th Amendment" can open one and even the whole site up to suspicion and intense scrutiny with all sorts of evil motives imputed to said individuals and the whole site by Lieberal fiends and snitches!!!

So our precious "freedom of expression is always clouded by the suspicions and assumptions of the politically correct leftists that scour sites such as FR. One must remember both halves of the ancient chinese curse:"May you live in interesting times and may you come to the attention of powerful people!" Ahhhh Sooooo!!! Very scruitable!!!

George Obama, February 3, 2009, appearing before a village magistrate in Nyangoma Kogelo , Kenya, after being charged with drug possession.

would it be deemed?

Yes, but I rather doubt the left is troubled by geriatric rage, ... unless health care is involved.

may you come to the attention of powerful people!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in our republic that would be we the people.

Each state has it's own rules and laws when it comes to forming a militia. The RAT party in office to today would make you thing the militia is evil but the militia is really the only thing we have going for us in order to get rid of the corruption in our government. We were warned about the evils that can take place and that why they set rules for a militia but our government would turn on anyone that would go after them because it's been drummed into the heads of American that a militia is evil.
The constitution calls for the corruption to be removed, they must call for their party members to step down or resign but only the Republican party does that. The Liberal,communist RAT party doesn't call for the removal of the criminals in office, instead they elect judges,and chair persons that can protect the criminals in office.
The RATS must call for Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Charlie Rangle, Waters, Schumer, along with a few others. These people MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE NOW, IT SHOULD have happened years ago.
According to the Constitution, JUST HOW LIGAL IS OUR SENATE OR OUR HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. POLOSSI AND RIED ALONG WITH THEIR FELLOW RAT PARTY ARE ILLEGALLY HOLDING UNTO THEIR SEATS. THE CORRUPTION MUST BE REMOVED FROM OUR GOVERNMENT. Any BILL THEY PASS IS NOT LEGAL. They low life Judge they just approved is not binding. The American people should DEMAND that no Supreme Judge or Senator can be sworn into office because they are not legally holding on to those seats.
Acorn played a big part in getting these RATS into office and that's why the bozo in the White House is paying them billions of dollars.
What's happening today is the makings of the Republican party. They KNEW that Election Fraud was out of control when the Clintons were running and they REFUSED to go after Clinton, they refused to challenge the election, they were all running scared. Many people were beaten up, became victims of the IRS or they were killed, MURDERED and they all got away with it.
Look at the Impeachment trial for Clinton, that was the JOKE of the Century. Clinton should have been removed from office and tried for TREASON along with many other crimes he,Hitlary and his RAT party were guilty of. What happened behind closed doors, the Republican party had the VETO POWER and for some strange reason Trent Lott turned the veto power over to the low life SCUM Daschel. Why? and just how could that happen with out some dirty deal or blackmail to take place.
Judge Rehnquist,can't remember the correct spelling of his name, this Judge knew ABSOLUTLELY NOTHING ABOUT CONSTITUTION LAW. I called that gavel than, a bloody gavel that could cost us our lives one day. Now we have the BOZO’s in office along with the SAME scum that was part of the Clinton administration, Clinton would have done much of what the bozo is doing but couldn't because he had a REPUBLICAN party in power at the time, and they stop him short more than once. Clinton and Rubin and Greenspan would have bankrupted this country years ago and they wanted to, they couldn't get their hands on the money, they wanted to take over the Social Security fund and couldn't. Clinton and Russia and the dirty deals there, the space station, just like the bozo is doing now. That Golden GAVEL that didn't put Clinton and the rest of the RATS were the belonged may be dripping with the blood of millions of Americans it this bozo and the communist liberal rats are not stopped. NO lawyer or Judge or government committee is going to convict or remove any of them.
The CZARS WILL REPLACE THE SO CALLED ELECTED OFFICIALS and just WHO, yes WHO is going to stop them, only a militia that is formed by the rules and laws of each state, a militia that is intended for the good of all Americans.
They don't want us to have guns, WHY? because every American has the right to bare ARMS and protect and save this country and the American people, we must fight for our freedom and we must never allow the evil forces of a DICTATER to replace our Constitution or our bill of Rights.

Hey! You left out how it's all been Bush's fault and how the vile Cheney had run the oval office for eight years and how they blew the cover for that secret agent Valerie Plame and how they tortured terrorist just because they didn't actually belong to a signatory country and on and on... How could you leave so much out???
