U.N. influence in Alabama

Only a handful of the people who gathered at the Birmingham Hilton on April 8, 2003, knew that the objective of the meeting was to implement U.N. policy in Alabama. Most people in attendance thought the meeting was to solicit comments about a ""forest management plan" being developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The comment period is open until July, at which time the plan will go into effect to standardize "ecosystem management" in all national forests in Alabama.

"Yes," answered Rick Morgan, spokesman for the government, when asked if the plan provided for core wilderness areas, surrounded by buffer zones. The plan fulfills the criteria of Article 4 of UNESCO's "Statutory Framework for U.N. Biosphere Reserves." Most of Alabama has already been gobbled up by the Southern Appalachian Biosphere Reserve, one of 47 U.N. Biosphere Reserves designated in the U.S., with no debate, discussion or vote by any state legislature or the U.S. Congress.

A major function of all U.N. Biosphere Reserves is to continually expand the core wilderness areas and connecting corridors of wilderness, pushing ever-outward the buffer zones, and surrounding the entire area with an ever-expanding "zone of cooperation." The Southern Appalachian Reserve began with the designation of the 517,000-acre Great Smoky Mountains National Park as a U.N. Biosphere Reserve. State Department maps now show the reserve to include an area that stretches from Birmingham to Roanoke, and from Nashville to Asheville.

Who wants all this land managed according to policies decided by UNESCO?

Morgan was asked: If all the comments received from the people were negative, opposing the management plan, would the plan be abandoned? His answer: "No, the comments will be taken and duly noted."

This management plan is required by the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity. Why is this plan being implemented in Alabama, and throughout the United States, when the U.S. Senate did not ratify the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity?

The Clinton-Gore administration expected the treaty to be ratified, with little or no opposition. They were shocked when it failed, and decided to implement its provisions anyway, through its administrative policy of "Ecosystem Management." The people who insist the U.N. has no control over our land-use policies, including those in Congress, either don't know – or don't want others to know – how the system works.

The Convention on Biological Diversity was first proposed in 1981 by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. The IUCN is an NGO (non-government organization) in Switzerland whose membership includes more than 60 major U.S. environmental organizations, and seven departments of the federal government.

The bureaucrats from these seven federal agencies, and the leaders of the environmental organizations, worked together through the IUCN to develop the draft treaty, which was then presented to the U.N. Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, where it was adopted in 1992. Once adopted by the U.N., these same environmental organizations and federal agencies lobby for ratification. The federal agencies then implement the treaties which they helped draft. And, these same agencies award federal grants to the NGOs to help implement the treaties. Almost all U.S. environmental policy since the early 1970s has followed this same route.

The Nature Conservancy has been an initiator of at least the last four U.N. Biosphere Reserves nominated in the U.S., and a primary promoter of Biosphere expansion everywhere. At the Birmingham meeting, Rick Morgan was asked if his agency {U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service??} was in partnership with the Nature Conservancy. His reply: "We are mutually supportive, we attend their meetings and they attend ours."

The Nature Conservancy and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are members of the IUCN. Both organizations worked on the development of the Convention on Biological Diversity, and both organizations are working together to implement the management provisions required by the treaty, even though the treaty was not ratified.

The long-term aim of the Convention on Biological Diversity is to convert at least half of the land area to "core wilderness" areas, connected by corridors of wilderness, all of which is off limits to human activity. Wilderness areas are to be surrounded by buffer zones, in which human activity is strictly limited by government, and managed for "conservation objectives." People are gradually being moved into "sustainable communities," which are designed to achieve economic and environmental equity.

The meeting in Birmingham was to satisfy the requirement to provide for public input to a plan, the outcome of which was decided years ago. The people were told that the plan affected only the National Forests in Alabama. Truth is, that the plan affects all land in and near the National Forests. The federal government uses the Endangered Species Act, the Invasive Species Initiative, wetland policies, viewsheds, smart growth and a host of other policies, to restrict land use on private property to the point that the land will ultimately fall into the hands of the government, or an environmental organization such as the Nature Conservancy.

Alabama is not alone. Virtually every state and every community has been targeted to undergo a similar transformation into what Science magazine described in 1993 as "the transformation of America to an archipelago of human-inhabited islands surrounded by natural areas (p.1868)."

The transformation of America was designed by the IUCN in Switzerland, adopted by the United Nations, and is being systematically implemented in Alabama, and in every state, by bureaucrats and environmentalists who have no accountability at the ballot box. Elected officials, who are accountable at the ballot box, are allowing the transformation to go forward.
They should be held accountable.

Henry Lamb is the executive vice president of the Environmental Conservation Organization and chairman of Sovereignty International.

I wasn't quite sure what UNESCO was all about when Bush rejoined forcing us to pay more dues to the UN.

Joining UNESCO the same day that Bush uttered the words "irrelevant" to the UN. That kind of reminds one of Clinton. Doublespeak.

If this gets alot of play in Alabama, the solid south may not be so solid for the Republicans in 04.

"If this gets alot of play in Alabama, the solid south may not be so solid for the Republicans in 04."

TT, You're right. And Don Young's {Republican from Alaska} raising of the gasoline taxes won't help much either. I wonder if the Republicans remember the last Republican President that only served one term because of "broken" promises? 92% approval after Desert Storm to less than enough to retain the Presidency.

Of course, I do agree with Pat Buchanan when he says, "The Republicans and Democrats are just two wings on the same bird of prey." Peace and love, George.

Well, as ole George Wallace once said "There isn't a dimes worth of difference in the Democrat party and the Republican party."

If I remember correctly, that year Alabama went 3rd party.

Maybe the 3rd party will be Tancredo this time. Who knows?

Then ignored. We have unelected councils in Santa Cruz County, CA trying to underhandedly implement UN garbage. They have succeeded very well. When the public finds out about them and tries to attend the meetings, they go underground. If the public tries to reveiw the records and "surveys" they take, suddenly no one knows where the data is. They are working hand in glove with the county planning department traitors who put their political ideology above the rights guarenteed to citizens by the Constitution.

The UN will charge us a fee (tax) to visit our parks in time.

Another SCAM to keep the UN bureaucrat’s access to easy money and lazy do nothing jobs.

Forget the laci & golf news, this is a real story that can affect your life.

"Bush Rejoined forcing us to pay more dues at the UN"

Let me give you a little reality:

The US exit from UNESCO was a temporary event, done only to force reforms. Those reforms were made and the move to rejoin began. Even George Shultz, who was the prime mover on the exit, had signaled the need to rejoin and believe it or not, Jesse Helms supported the rejoining.

The House passed their bill with an appropriation to rejoin in mid 2001. The bill languished in the Senate for a year.

By mid 2002 the role of the madraas' anti-US educational curriculum in islamic countries had come to light and the Senate went to confernce with the House on the bill and it passed quickly. It was felt that UNESCO would be effective in countering the muslim teachings. There were also some strings attached on Freedom of the Press issues in Afghanistan.

Bush was pleased at the timing since he could use as multi-lateralism. Cheap multilateralism as well.

It was all settled by the Supreme Court during the Nixon Administration, when Congress appropriates the money, the Prez has to spend it.

Important links - I'd start with the one on the Federal Reserve. Once folks understand that, the rest of it becomes easier to understand.

Anybody know why freedomnews was banned? He was great.

And pardon me for opening bad wounds, but wasn't Chief Negotiator the FReeper who died from injuries after a fire bomb was thrown through his bathroom window?

Actually, I remember it being "There isn't a dimes worth of difference in the Democrat bologna and the Republican bologna."

And, if it was 1968, several states went third-party. He pulled 46 Electoral votes that year.

I have kin in Alabam. Checking to see if they know anything about this. When I've talked about the restrictions in place in our area, my uncle (Iwo Jima, day 2) said that wasn't what HE was fighting for, and they don't have that in Alabama...

I have to tell you guys that I loved your expression, and I mean that in a good way. It just struck me funny, partly because it brought to mind my niece when she was 5; except 'hell' wasn't exactly the word she used! I really appreciated it, because some days I just can't seem to find much to laugh about.
