Big Media Won't Touch Agenda 21 Nancy Levant
I keep waiting, and waiting, and waiting for Bill OReilly or Shaun Hannity or Oprah Winfrey or somebody ..anybody, who has daily access to the multitudes, to say the words, Agenda 21. Im still waiting, and for the life of me, I dont understand the refusal to talk about the greatest threat to America that has ever existed. However, it dawns on me that wrapping a brain around Agenda 21 requires time, effort, interest, and a lot diligence. No one told me about Agenda 21. I found it by accident on the Internet. Then I went to the U.N.s website and read Agenda 21. From there I went to Buenos Aires, The Presidents Commission of Sustainable Development, my local sustainable development commissions and planners, to local visioning commissions, ecology conglomerates, and then back to the U.N.. After about six months of reading about a whole lot of global, national, and philanthropic organizations, I started documenting and keeping running lists because, I discovered, Agenda 21 was huge, highly developed, and a done deal. How is it, I asked myself, that in 50 years, I never heard of any of this before? Where were my trusted newscasters? And why hasnt my President, or the previous Presidents, ever talked about Agenda 21, the meetings in Buenos Aires, and Agenda 21s connections to the World Trade Organization, World Bank, and a thousand other global organizations?
So, I kept researching the Net. And lo and behold, I finally realized that Agenda 21 would never be publicized to Americans. It really cant be.
As my running lists were now becoming encyclopedic, I also realized that there was no way to explain Agenda 21 easily. Its too big, profoundly sophisticated, intentionally masked and hidden by corporate agendas and ecological ideologies that are, themselves, exploited by corporate agendas. But more than that, I realized that for Americans to understand Agenda 21, they would have to come to terms with a truth that, I fear, they wont believe. What would that truth be? Let me try to say it in one sentence: Agenda 21 is the end of America.
As I read that sentence I think, Well, Nancy, now everyone is going to think you are an extremist and no one will believe anything you say from now on. Everyone knows there can be no end to America .
But unfortunately, my dear Americans, there can be an end to America, for America is a way of life. The place on Earth - where we are the beautiful and bountiful lands between Canada and Mexico, might retain the name of The United States of America, but Im not even sure that that is a given. If you believe even half of Agenda 21 and its dealings with the World Trade Organization, The World Bank, The Presidents Commission on Sustainable Development, The Commission on Global Governance, The World Conference on Global Governance, The Millennium Project, The Court of Criminal Justice, The Nature Conservancy, The World Summit on Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, AND the visioning training and manipulation of American people, then you realize what has happened right under our noses over the past 35 years and without one national personality ever mentioning Agenda 21.
So, let me offer a list of website addresses to help readers research for themselves. I suggest you take notes and collect new website addresses. I believe that, as Americans, we owe it to our history and our sense of ourselves, to do the following:
· Read Agenda 21. If you read the other information via the web addresses in this article, you will wrap your brain around Agenda 21. Its unbelievable and its dastardly, because not one politician or national media outlet has had the guts to tell us what was being taken from us.
· Pass your knowledge on to others. Dont stew and be paralyzed. Take your knowledge to churches, civic organizations, and any other groups or individuals you can, and resolve yourselves to spread the news. Have an Anti-Agenda 21 Parade or Day to draw attention to the cause. Without fail, its the most important thing you will ever do in your lives as patriotic people. Write to your representatives and tell them you know what they have hidden, and that their manipulations of American citizens are shameful. Do it.
· Try so very hard to home school your children. Public schools are governmental institutions embroiled in Agenda 21 and its plans for the United States and our children. As you read and study Agenda 21, you will see it alive, well, and operating most obviously in the public schools. You will also see it clearly in the newest communities in all states across the country. Agenda 21 is everywhere, and it wants your childrens intellects and value systems as well as your land and land rights.
· Finally, teach your children about Agenda 21, what it is, and what it is doing to their country. Children have unique wisdoms at every age. Teach them truths so that they can faithfully and fearlessly speak truths. They must understand what is happening in their country. They cannot fight hidden and masked manipulations if they dont understand how and where they operate.
Now is the time for Americans to help Americans. We cannot fight the loss of our rights unless we understand the game, and most Americans are totally unaware of what is happening to them and their communities. However, I do believe that the bulk of American people sense that something is amiss. Lets commit to them, our children, and our futures. Lets spread the news and make the media and politicians talk. They have counted on our stupidity, our silence, and our laziness. They have even counted on us not really caring.
We have to remember its our government. It does not belong to politicians. They work for us. Unfortunately, they have not done that, and furthermore, they have advanced a worldwide mission without our knowledge, our votes, or even our opinions. So I say, one town at a time, here we come, and any elected official found to be complicit or a silent player in the Agenda 21 game needs to go.

That's President Bush agreeing with it.
these gun haters do not like Bush. this is from the UN affiliatied International Campaign to Band Landmines ( a cover for small arms confiscation)
it does me good to see how much they dislike Bush policy

Hello to everyone in the ICBL.
It has been a very long time since I have written to everyone, but the latest from the Bush administration is just too disturbing to ignore.
As we have talked about many times, a big concern to many of us in the ICBL -- and some of our government friends who really do care about the civil society-government partnership that we have forged -- has always been that some governments would try to make sure that that model was not replicated to resolve other issues -- such as child soldiers, small arms/light weapons control, the establishment of an International Criminal Court, to name just a few.
I guess it should be of little surprise given the arrogant isolationism of this new administration and its hostility to almost every international treaty whether already negotiated or in the process of negotiation that the US government just this past week at the United Nations attacked the very model that we established with the ICBL.
As you all now, there is a three-week conference underway at the UN to try to deal with the proliferation of light arms and small weapons. You might have read the news reports of the USs very hostile position toward the conference. There were articles about it in the Washington Post and opinion pieces in the New York Times to name just a couple, this past week. But what I had not seen mentioned was that the US was not only hostile to the negotiations it is also trying to block the open participation of citizens in the discussions.
In case you haven't seen it, John R. Bolton, Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security, addressed the Plenary Session of the UN Conference on the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons for the U.S. And he said:
We do not support the promotion of international advocacy activity by international or non-governmental organizations, particularly when those political or policy views advocated are not consistent with the views of all member states. What individual governments do in this regard is for them to decide, but we do not regard the international governmental support of particular political viewpoints to be consistent with democratic principles. Accordingly, the provisions of the draft Program that contemplate such activity should be modified or eliminated. (If you wish to read the entire address it can be found at: http://www.state.gov/t/us/rm/2001/index.cfm?docid=4038)
In other words, Bolton and the Bush administration are saying that NGOs should not be allowed to express views on issues under negotiation -- particularly, as Mr. Bolton notes in so many words, if such views "offend" any single country (such as the U.S., for example). The administration is trying to re-establish the tyranny of consensus that we were able to avoid in the Ottawa Process and with government-civil society partnership in that process . And he is saying that the rules of procedure of the negotiations should be changed to silence our voices.
In so many words, the Bush administration is saying that having a point of view and expressing it is not consistent with democratic principles. Am I alone in feeling that Ive fallen through the looking glass and the jabberwocky is talking gibberish?
We all know that what we have achieved in the ICBL is much more than the eventual elimination of landmines. It is the model itself and the empowerment that we all have gotten by working together for a common goal -- even if we don't always agree on every detail of how to get there. As we all know, the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) is about a whole lot more than just landmines. Even if we only were able to get rid of this indiscriminate weapon and help landmine survivors around the world, it would be a significant contribution to a better world. But, the Campaign has done so much more than that and has become a powerful example of what ordinary citizens can do when they work together and express their views. For that, in part, we received the Nobel Peace Prize.
You might recall that in its announcement of the 1997 award, the Norwegian Nobel Committee said, among other things, that the ICBL, in making up a network through which it has been possible to express and mediate a broad wave of popular commitment in an unprecedented way.....has grown into a convincing example of an effective policy for peace." In concluding, the Nobel Committee noted that as a model for similar processes in the future, it could prove of decisive importance to the international effort for disarmament and peace."
Apparently, the Bush administration recognizes that our model could prove of decisive importance and wants to stop it now. I hope many if not all of you share my outrage at this attempt to take away our voices -- and that you will let your governments know that you are outraged that the 'world's greatest democracy' is behaving in such an undemocratic fashion.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
"The United Nations redistribution policy".
hmmm... no, i didn;t know it was mentioned during Condi's grilling..
but.. i still have hope.. i KNOW Bush was playing the dems when he said he would sign the fienstien Gun Ban law if they got it to his desk. either he KNEW he could say that knowing it wouldn't make it there, or.. he was just bluffing...
i'm holding onto hope here. he did get us out of that ICC..
Agenda 21 is a bit old. The implementation isn't by UN action, it's by fed through local zoning, land use, code, EPA, ect rules. In addition, requiring planning for everything drives operating expenses up even further. The plans aren't allowed to be flexible either.
Folks never really see the connection. It comes in little peices and by stealth as buried items in budget bills. Required land use planning came as an item attached at the last minute to a budget bill at the end of legislative session. Most have no interest anyway, because they have nothing at stake and are shown what they have to gain in this taking of other folks property.
They won't be happy till they take our guns.
When people start talking about confiscating our weapons, it has the opposite effect on people like us.
We have been buying guns and ammo in this house. One never knows when one might need them....lol

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia sentences a former Yugoslav General, among other things, for the destruction of and damage to the World Heritage site of the Old Town of Dubrovnik
01 February 2005
On 31 January 2005, the Trial Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia sentenced retired General Pavle Strugar of the Yugoslav Peoples Army to eight years in prison for war crimes perpetrated in 1991. He has been found guilty of war crimes against the civilian population and, under Article 3(d) of the Tribunals Statute, of the destruction of and wilful damage to a number of historical and cultural sites located in the Old Town of Dubrovnik, in Croatia, a site inscribed on the List of World Heritage since 1979. This Judgement illustrates clearly how destruction of, and damage to, world heritage sites under the 1972 UNESCO Convention can be sanctioned under international humanitarian law.
Damaged by the armed conflict of the 1990s, the Old City of Dubrovnik became the focus of a major restoration programme co-ordinated by UNESCO. In 1991, the city was immediately included on the List of World Heritage in Danger in order to draw international attention to the situation and carry out the necessary emergency protection measures. With UNESCO providing technical advice and financial assistance, the Croatian Government restored the facades of the Franciscan and Dominican cloisters, repaired roofs and rebuilt palaces. As a result, in December 1998, it became possible to remove the city from the List of World Heritage in Danger.
Today, the World Heritage Centre continues to provide international assistance to the site, most recently by financing two meetings of the Consultative Council of Experts for the Restoration of Dubrovnik.

World Heritage Committee
The World Heritage Committee is the statutory body responsible for decision-making on all matters related to the implementation of the World Heritage Convention.
It meets once a year, in June, to:
Select new properties for the World Heritage List from among the cultural and natural properties nominated by the different countries. The Committee is assisted by the Advisory bodies .
* Examine reports on the state of conservation of listed properties and ask the States Parties to take action when properties are not being properly managed.
* Allocate finances of the World Heritage Fund for properties in need of repair or restoration; for emergency action if properties are in immediate danger; for providing technical assistance and training; and for promotional and educational activities.
The Committee consists of representatives from 21 States Parties, elected by the General Assembly of the States Parties to the World Heritage Convention.
The Committee elects the Chairperson, the Rapporteur and five Vice-Chairpersons. At its first session, the Committee adopted its Rules of Procedure of the World Heritage Committee , subsequently amended at its 2nd, 3rd, 20th, 24th and 25th ordinary sessions and 6th extraordinary session.
The Chairperson chairs the sessions of the Committee and represents the Committee for a period of one year. The Chairperson also has the authority to approve requests for preparatory assistance (maximum US$ 15,000), for training and technical cooperation up to US$ 20,000 and for emergency assistance up to US$ 50,000.

We are trying to destroy America ourselves?
Haven't you read Agenda 21's manifesto?
Please add me to the "rights, farms, environment" ping. Thanks.
I hope someone brings this subject up again, if you do, please ping me. Night all.
BTW, in an e-mail to me, a British Conservative speaker and writer who is a member of a prestigious social organization (meetings at Buckingham Palace and that sort of thing) recently compared our US ease of buying and owning land to lebensraum--the old WWII Nazi plan to confiscate conquered lands for "living space." Projections like that are an old tactic in such propaganda. That's how messed up information matters regarding our way of life are getting in the convincing political speech of some influential political groups in some other countries. Also, bear in mind the increasing anti-Semitism in most radical environmentalist groups--foreign and domestic.
here;s another good mark for Bush on the 2nd am.
We have started a weapons collection programme composed of two phases. In Phase I, the Government announced general amnesty from 5 to 20 June for voluntary surrender of illicit weapons" similar to the gun surrender program run by President Clinton's Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, and recently terminated by the Bush administration. Under both the Clinton and the Pakistani program, the targeted weapons firearms owned by civilians, regardless of criminality.
People thought LOST was a joke at first. Now it's being pushed as polict by our own government.
Anything think the UN is just going away anytime soon? It isn't.
Agenda 21.This is dead serious, people.
