The Tennessee Senate added its voice to the state House in condemning the United Nations Agenda 21 on Tuesday. The program is an environmental initiative meant to encourage sustainable development. A majority of Tennessee lawmakers now describe it as destructive.
The United Nations Agenda 21 has never been endorsed by the U.S. as a treaty, but it has become a hot button issue among grass roots conservatives who see the United Nations as the first step to so-called one-world government.
Resolution sponsor Mike Bell, a Republican from McMinn County, held up a black loose leaf folder several inches thick.
There is over 300 pages, like I said, contained in this document. I can best describe this as zoning rules on steroids.
But Chattanooga Democrat Andy Berke says the resolution implies that simple environmental planning is a conspiracy to remove Americans property rights.
It seems to me that planning and forethought and trying to preserve our Tennessee way of life is exactly what we should be doing.
Berke pointed to the planning which the city of Chattanooga had to do when it lured the large Volkswagen plant to the region.
The measure has no practical effect sponsor Mike Bell called it a message to Congress.
It may not prevent anything, but its a good start.
Good to see that people are taking this seriously.
Like most other things the left/communists try to do, they try to do stealthily and will ridicule anyone who exposes them as a kook or conspiracy theorist.
Actually just the very fact that Agenda 21 has been forced into the headlines is causing the Globalists to have an aneurysm. Me likey.
Condemn that building. Demolish it. Put a green park there and plant some trees.
Maybe this will finally finish soros off, ya think? Me likey too.
Will No One Rid Me of this Meddlesome Priest?
I hope everyone in every states reads this and takes action in their state...
United States Congressional Record January 19, 1976, page 240,
Representative Marjorie S. Holt (Maryland):
“Mr. Speaker, many of us recently received a letter from the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, inviting members of Congress to participate in a ceremonial signing of “A Declaration of Interdependence” on January 30 in Congress Hall, adjacent to Independence Hall in Philadelphia.
A number of Members of Congress have been invited to sign this document, lending their prestige to its theme, but I want the record to show my strong opposition to this declaration.
It calls for the surrender of our national sovereignty to international organizations. It declares that our economy should be regulated by international authorities. It proposes that we enter a “New World Order” that would redistribute the wealth created by the American people.
Mr. Speaker, this is an obscenity that defiles our Declaration of Independence, signed 200 years ago in Philadelphia. We fought a great Revolution for independence and individual liberty, but now it is proposed that we participate in a world socialist order.
Are we a proud and free people, or are we a carcass to be picked by the jackals of the world, who want to destroy us? When one cuts through the high-flown rhetoric of this “Declaration of Interdependence,” one finds key phrases that tell the story.
For example, it states that ‘The economy of all nations is a seamless web, and that no one nation can any longer effectively maintain its processes of production and monetary systems without recognizing the necessity for collaborative regulation by international authorities.’ How do you like the idea of “international authorities” controlling our production and our monetary system, Mr. Speaker?
How could any American dedicated to our national independence and freedom tolerate such an idea? . . . America should never subject her fate to decisions by such an assembly, unless we long for national suicide. Instead, let us have independence and freedom . . . If we surrender our independence to a “new world order” . . . we will be betraying our historic ideals of freedom and self-government. Freedom and self-government are not outdated. The fathers of our Republic fought a revolution for those ideals, which are as valid today as they ever were. Let us not betray freedom by embracing slave masters; let us not betray self-government with world government; let us celebrate Jefferson and Madison, not Marx and Lenin.”
I’d refer you to the NY Times which recently ran a whiney, apoplectic piece about how so many “global initiatives” have stalled at the local and county levels because “those darned Tea Party people” started showing up at the meetings.
thank you for posting that
You've hit a great point to use in arguing reality with those who say they haven't heard of Agenda 21. So much of what the left believes in proves itself to be destructive or worse because they take great pains to disguise what they are doing and promote their causes in somewhat secretive ways.
This man is evil - for those who are not aware of who/what he does do some research. There is nothing good that comes from his money. He has gained so very much since his “boy” is in the White House. He funds Media Matters, OWS - yes there are many of those who are paid, and that is the tip of the iceburg. Global yes - he wants the destruction of the USA. And look at the progress he's made since Obama came into office. This is what he's been waiting for and he's delighted with the results.
IF Obama gets re-elected God have mercy on this country.
If you would like to observe the damage Agenda 21 does to citizens rights and freedoms, just take a look at Santa Cruz county, California. It is an early adapter of Agenda 21 starting in earnest in the 1990s.
Recently the agenda 21’rs banned paper bags from the county, but selectively, so ‘friends’ of agenda 21’rs get to bag their customers purchases as well as those restauranteurs who sued the county over this. Others are decreed to charge customers for the bags, but luckily for the owners of the shops, they get to keep the tax for themselves.
Idiots think this tax is going to ‘protect the environment’ somehow.
It really is a bribe— tax free money for the shop owners— who will likely work to keep the tyrants in place next election.
The department of public works is the enforcer! They can come to your shop and fine you! Police authority for public works, how corrupt will this country get before people stop this?
They force people to buy crappy cloth bags made in China, and put the renewable resource paper industry in this country out of business.
If you wanted your country to fail you would do Agenda 21.
California has legislated Agenda 12 in a bill AB 32.
Jerry Brown is a huge supporter of Agenda 21, because it sends money and business to his commie buddies in China.
In return his ‘investments’ in China for his personal fortune do quite well.
Don’t forget California’s ‘smart meter’ initiative too. Another means of the UN and Agenda 21’rs interfering with constitutionally protected rights of US citizens.
Sorry, but you have waived your rights...
Absolutely evil. He turned in Jews to be killed during the Nazi reign and asked if he had regrets he said no because if he hadn't done it someone else would have - what a demon from hell. He also views America as the last piece to be put in place for globalization. I believe he has two sons - not sure on that but I hope they don't have the diabolical mind of their father. He makes his money by destroying economies and making a profit on their pain. He is an atheist, of course, and will be very surprised when he just doesn't go to dust but has a future in hell.
I hope everybody sees it...
Messages of support to Resolution sponsor Mike Bell, a Republican from McMinn County, would be in order for everyone following this news.
