Yuba City, CA. With a standing ovation, the crowd at Tuesday nights, Jan. 31, Sutter County Board of Supervisors meeting praised the boards action in which it unanimously rejected a resolution to apply for a state grant to update the countys zoning ordinance. Lisa Wilson, the county Planning Division Manager, had asked the Board to approve submitting a grant application to the Sustainable Communities Planning Grant and Incentive Program for Local Sustainable Planning funds to update the zoning ordinances to comply with the recently adopted General Plan.
Do you also have one of those Sheriffs willing to tell the NFS and other Federal Polizei to pound sand regarding local law enforcement?
This shows you how deep the cancer has gone. Counties are feeling the effects of this tyranny that has gripped this nation from within. Stay vigilant. Does anyone think Romney or Santorum have any idea whats going on?
What happens if it’s already enacted? There’s an Agenda 21 type setup in Adams County, PA. I tried informing the local 912 group last year during one of their meetings which was about Agenda 21, people really did not understand that this has already passed here.
Bump to re-read when I need a pick-me-up.
Although Wilson had tried to state that there were no strings attached to the grant, community speakers pointed out that the countys application would have to assure the State that the county would include sustainability, reduce or eliminate cars, provide equity and other terminology associated with Agenda 21. In addition, the speakers provided a document to the Board which showed the National Republican party recently passed a resolution exposing Agenda 21 as a comprehensive plan of extreme environmentalism."
That’s nice but go back to page 5 and read how the same TP group failed to stop the grant process in Live Oak, CA. This article really points out how the Agenda 21 folks get their hooks into planning councils by issuing grants for community development that contain back end commitments. This is insidious!
Would this be more of a Cea Party?
Controlled Enough Already...
Once this taxpayer money is approved, they will pay for the consultant, for the consultants "visioning" meetings, and for the "facilitators" for all of the Delphi meetings with citizens to meet the public input meeting requirements. If the city doesn't like the plan the Strategic Growth Council consultant wants to implement in Live Oak, Live Oak must immediately pay back the $150,000, plus interest and administration costs.
The purpose of the grant of taxpayer money is to ensure communities comply with AB32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, and SB375, the California Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act of 2008. It appears none who spoke or voted for this taxpayer grant has read the grants requirements and application. For example, how will the Live Oak City Council "certify" that "threshold requirements outlined in the guidelines, including consideration of Ocean Protection Council Sea Level Rise Guidance will be met"? This is one of the many requirements stated in the application and taken directly from AB32 and SB375.
You can have it reversed by waking people up and getting them to confront your elected officials who often don't even understand what they are voting on. We did it and you can too. You'll find plenty of information and friends willing to help HERE.
If you are in touch with other people who are concerned about our future and freedom you might consider creating a 501(c)(3)to gain political power, or affiliate with others who have already put all the mechanisms in place and won local battles in different areas. Property rights are HUMAN rights!
More so than most people understand. Besides the smoke screen of free money, the people working to put every aspect of our lives and property under U.N. control use well intentioned locals who are not informed to push their agenda through nicely wrapped assault weapons like; bike paths, environmental buffers, wildlife corridors and much much more.
After all, doesn't everyone want clean water and air?

For those who are interested in more on the Agenda 21 thread, you can access a lot of information on it regarding Agenda 21 and related topics.

Freepmail me if you want on or off the ping list for this topic.
All zoning is tyranical to property rights and has an ‘agenda’. The ‘agenda’ of a county or city’s zoning ordinances are opposed by some and championed by others.
There is no difference in coerciveness.
An agenda is an agenda.
All States, counties and cities have already gone down the road of relinquishing local control to get Federal taxpayer money from w-a-y back.
People don’t complain when they are getting stuff they agree with.
This is called hypocrisy.
True enough. I guess it's one of those "glass half full, glass half empty" deals.
You can't win 'em all but it's nice to know you win one occasionally.
Thanks for the ping!
It's the information in the second article on how the grants are just the leading edge to a later commitment that is important.
States, counties and cities already went down the road of relinquishing local control in exchange for Federal taxpayer money (bribes) for a long, long time now.
I’m sorry, this is just arguing about what FEDpork some people want vs. what FEDpork other people want.
The tea party should be fighting local control being bargained away for all manner of FEDpork bennies, not just Agenda 21 proposals that they don’t like.
If they don’t, I will fight them on this as they are being blatantly hypocritical. Local people should have local control, period. If the tea party won’t fight for this on everything, not just on stuff they don’t like, screw them.
When the tea party started I thought they would fight for larger principals like States rights and greater local control over policies. But IME they are turning out to be just another special interest group on small matters of preference of one type of pork over another.
I think there are a lot more people and a lot more work going on at the local level than you understand.
I work at the local level every day.
I see what goes on. Everyone want their ‘agenda’ to be pork barelled.
...and that's why we're rushing to our demise.
Rosa Koire blasts the MTC/ABAG group for trying to secretly meet with private citizens who dissented during the last go round of One Bay Area meetings.
Now that the public is catching on and compelling increasing numbers of elected representatives to represent their constituents by refusing to take the bait and avoid entering into the socialists' trap, the Agenda 21 soldiers are trying something new.
I'll just add that my final response to these scumbags was this: (but read her article to get the whole story)
I still dont know what this meeting is about and how it would benefit me to attend. An informal meeting, with unelected officials and no agenda, to discuss issues, matters and dissent doesnt warrant my time. The issues and matters I care about are the same as those expressed by hundreds of others who attended the winter workshops.
As a member of the public and a tax payer I expected the open dialogue you are now requesting and a robust conversation to have occurred at the open meetings held in January. Sadly that did not occur. To now ask for an informal, private meeting with a handful of private citizens and no agenda is puzzling. Hundreds of people dissented at these meetings. Hundreds of tax payers showed up to ask questions and got NO answers!! The questions were all written down and to this date NONE of them have been answered.
The public was promised that their questions and the answers to those questions would be posted on the MTC website, but to date there is no evidence that this has happened. May I suggest that MTC/ABAG staffers spend their time answering the issues and matters that were raised by ALL the taxpayers at the winter workshop meetings and post them on the website rather than waste more tax payer money holding private meetings with me.
When MTC and ABAG decide to hold real town hall forums with the public the process will be meaningful. Hiring paid meeting facilitators is a waste of tax payer money and clearly does not adequately provide a forum for the public to participate. The phony virtual workshop is a sham meant only to boost your public input numbers. Without identifying who or where these online votes are coming from they are meaningless. And with predetermined choices the online workshop is merely a rigged video game. I suggest you post the questions and answers from the public forums to your website now.
I didn't take it that way at all.
I was aware of the Live Oak City Council decision to enter the snare and it bummed me out, too.
I don't know how two cities that are so close together (and two counties for that matter) can be governed by such different-minded people but that's the way it is.
Actually, I do have an idea as to why the difference exists but that would take this thread down a rabbit hole that would be unproductive.
