United Nations Agenda 21 comes to Texas Textbooks
(Hearings in Austin, Sept 6)
"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced - a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources." Daniel Sizarz, Editor of the UN-approved abridged version of Agenda 21
For those of you not familiar with this global socialists' agenda briefly it is an official adopted agenda by the UN and signed on to by the United States. It seeks to control every aspect of our lives from where we live to what we think to what we hear, all under the auspices of saving the planet. Brilliant plan if you support global governance and adhere to socialism. This is not a conspiracy theory folks its a conspiracy all right but its no theory. Check it out here: Agenda21text
Implementation has been in process for a number of years. In the United States, the programme is called the Presidents Council on Sustainable Development. In other countries the programmes have different names. The UN keeps a chart of where each nation is in the implementation process.
And most important to the programme of course, is educating our children so that when the time comes (if it hasnt already) they will not only accept socialism but embrace it in its new world government form in lieu of our national sovereignty. Check the education section under the above link you will be appalled.
Now look at the textbook review links for textbooks proposed for adoption NOW in the state of Texas. It doesnt take long to see that the curriculum matches the UN marching orders. This is nothing new. Many have even been aware that Agenda 21 was infiltrating our textbooks but it just wasnt bad enough for people to take action. Well it is time for action NOW, if it isnt too late. The agenda is so obvious in the textbooks reviewed that it is not even arguable.
If these textbooks are adopted by the Texas State Board of Education(SBOE) your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews will not only NOT resist socialism they will embrace it as the only way to sustain the earth.(And Texas orders so many textbooks that publishers look to Texas to determine what they offer other states.)
Oh yes, and the "profound reorientation" referred to above includes managing sexual behavior, population growth etc. A link in one of the textbooks takes the child to a listing of Non-governmental organization links and governmental links including the United Nations and Agenda 21. The first link is one of which is called Youth Action. Under the guise of environmental teaching this website teaches sexual education the way the UN wants it taught.
I might also point out (that while I cant confirm this for ALL the NGOs listed) many of these so called non-profit environmental groups get money from the EPA or money laundering non-profit agencies. Ive traced the money on a couple of them.
Now, the question becomes, even if we rid these books of this UN trash and we still have web site links how do we insure the information taught our children conforms to state law? We dont and that is something that also needs change in the process.
What about State Law? State law doesnt seem to be worth a flip. Why? Look at what the Texas Education Code says about factual errors and conforming curriculum. Chap. 31.002 requires the SBOE to adopt rules to provide for a full and complete investigation of textbooks for each subject. If you choose to read these reviews you will ask yourself how complete has the investigation been. In addition, state law requires that publishers or manufacturers offers in the state must be free of factual errors. This obviously didnt happen.
Chap. 29.002 also states that the SBOE and each school district shall foster the continuation of the tradition of teaching the United States and Texas history and the free enterprise system. It goes on to say that a primary purpose of public school curriculum is to prepare thoughtful, active citizens who understand the importance of patriotism and can function productively in a free enterprise society with appreciation for the basic democratic values of our state and national heritage.
Sound like something from 100 years ago? Thats because IT IS NOT being implemented and hasnt been for years. Quite the contrary. To paraphrase, the Addison Wesley textbooks tell students that the main reason for starving people is the free enterprise system and part of the reason are advancements in technology.
The text goes on. What worldview do you think a future voter will hold if he buys into these two causes as being the causes of world starvation? What sort of elected officials do you think he would vote for? And, is this Environmental Science? Or is it more Worldview Indoctrination?
And this is what my taxpayer dollars go to to fund green organizations, non-governmental organizations and the United Nations to brainwash our kids??? I wonder how many of my dollars have been spent and how many years taxpayers have been paying the salaries of eco-terrorists who would subvert our national sovereignty and set the stage for profound reorientation of our minds? No Telling.
No folks this is not black helicopter stuff - its real! And it is not even very cleverly disguised. Read the reviews for yourself. These four textbooks alone have more than 90 plus pages of errors. Individual reviewers have found more.
Websites at which you can read the reports on four science textbooks follows.
The TEA and the SBOE have consented now to take a vote to see if they will let testimony occur.. This will happen the morning of Thursday 6th. The deadline occurred over a month ago. You see the notification process is carefully crafted to meet the requirements of law but somehow ordinary citizens dont get notified.
Please, if you can testify, read the links. No guarantees, depending on the vote to let us private citizens be heard but at least come and show you support by taking back our education agenda from un-elected bureaucrats and non-governmental organizations.
The State board of Education does have some authority left and that includes voting to scrap these textbooks and start over. There needs to be fair and open public participation and adherence to the Texas Education Code with respect to required curriculum not with respect to the United Nations Agenda or that of corrupt elected officials.
And one more fairly major point textbook publisher write to Texas and California because we are the largest consumers of textbooks. If we can get this trash trashed in Texas, it will potentially impact every textbook sold in the nation! Now that is getting a big bang for your buck.
Come on Texas FReepers we need a show of support for OUR laws, OUR sovereignty, and the allocation of OUR tax dollars.
Thursday September 6th 2001 State Board of Education - Room 1-104 William B. Travis Building 1701 North Congress Avenue Austin, TX

This is what the United Nations has in mind for our sovereign nation and her citizens; This goes right along with Clinton/Clinton/Gore, the Democratic Socialists of America which permeate our congress and the Black Caucus. The hand writing has been on the wall for years and no one save Jessie Helms has done one darn thing about it until the White House took a stand in the Kyoto Accords and you heard the yelling around the world, and this past week when Colin Powell and others took the correct stance in that meeting. Folks, careful for whom you vote into office from here on out. Do not send money to any agency of the United Nations and that includes the EPA, UNISCO and the literally hundreds of other so called "help the
No, a factual response.
"Pretty suspect coming from a conservative..."
You simply don't understand what makes a conservative; usually it is the work of the Holy Spirit.
BTW, you're no 'libertarian' you're a control freak.
You have brought this debate down to a childish arguement. Congrats!
You were the first to bring the attacks, with name-calling. That is an emotional response to a factual response that you couldn't respond to intellectually.
Changing your angle of insult? Again, how childish for a political discussion. Good night.
BTW, who sits around and puts all this together? This is bizarre.
If after any of you have read the texbook reviews and feel so inclined, get in touch with your SBOE member.
You might want to mention that the Texas Ed Code Subchapter B Section 31.023 states that textbooks cannont be put on either a conforming or nonconforming list unless they are free from factual errors.
These are far from it - Even when one uses the bureaucrate's twisted definitions.

You're debating nobody. - You came here with the absurd assertion that those opposed to Agenda 21 are emotional hypocrites; is that debate?
You call yourself a libertarian, but really you seek not liberty, which comes only from the Lord Jesus Christ, but license and control of others thoughts and actions through the U.N.
This a socialist marching plan to deprive you of your assets, and property so that some poor socialist UN stooge, who has never worked for anything he or she has. Your money in your bank accounts will be seized, your property, just like in Klamath falls will be seized. You will become an asset to the "World", and you will be retrained. The life you know now will cease.
Unless some brave American decides to put his or her foot down, not die, and not be an example to others how to die, but stand for what you know is right, and live. Just think we will be privvy to the executions of such individuals as Rush Limbaugh, and G. Gordon Liddy, to name a few. If you speak out during this time, they will hunt you down like a dog, just like the east German Stazi used to do.
Am I making sense? If we wait, it will be too late, and What I have said will be in vain. Do you want to give up what YOU earned to some useless jerk, who has never worked a day in his life, but was supported by a socialist agenda?
BTW, who sits around and puts all this together? This is bizarre.

You should do more reading, instead of "surveying".
I picked a quote from the text and challenged it to the poster.
You have issued childish insults in response (apparantly to nothing I said). You can misquote me all you want, it just proves your incapacity to debate this.
The article asserts that only so called "liberals" or as I would gather that to define, anyone that opposes a self procalimed conservative; the article asserts that only liberals have the fallacy of their emotions coming into play into the political decision making.
I challenged that and YOU FAILED. Good night little child. Take your insults to the playground tomorrow.
I can't believe Texas has succumbed to this through their schools. It simply isn't compatible with Americans and I have always thought Texans were an independent bunch. Frightening, just plain frightening!
Where are the conservatives when it comes to educational matters, when it comes to writing books? Look through your books. How many are written by conservatives, except for a few books on politics, perhaps? Leftists write books, conservatives run businesses, IMO.
Baylor University, the most conservative in Texas, has professors that are mostly Democrats. I was told by one of the department heads that during the last election, the student body was elated and the faculty was saddened. Think about that!!!!!
Can't say that I'm familiar with them. However, they must be some fine folk. I'll ping TX Liberty Lady. Maybe she's familiar with the name. Thank you.

The message is.. NO AGENDA 21 IN TEXAS TEXTBOOKS ! ! !
What is it? Here is a sample.
"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced - a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources."
Daniel Sizarz, Editor of the UN-approved abridged version of Agenda 21.
What do you think this means?
I can tell you what a LOT of Texas Citizens believe it means...
This a socialist plan to deprive US Citizens of their assets, and property, turn it over to some socialist UN stooge, who has never worked for anything he or she has.
Can't happen? Look at the U.N "conference" on racism.. and what is happening in Zimbabwe. THAT is a UN supported situation. It is happening as we speak and the UN wants it HERE. They are trying to promote their "Agenda 21" in our children's textbooks.
STOP THEM NOW!
Thank you for your attention.
(your name here)
I stand behind my Post #27
Your attempt to convince me that one who makes decisions in life based on "personal beliefs" is synonymous with those who make decisions in life based on "Christian Beliefs" or Biblical Principles...
The personal beliefs are subject to being "wrong" whereas Biblical Principles are NEVER WRONG.. and apply whether or not your "personal beliefs" are consistent with "Biblical Principles"...
Is this not an accurate rebuttal to your post #17???
Give us a break!
Your "challenge" amounted to equating the value of our unborn children with that of wild animals. There is no similarity there. It's not an emotional issue, it is a spiritual issue. Annimals are here for our use, not for pagan worship, and our unborn children are not to be used by the Josef Mengeles of this world.
It is very telling that you consider facts to be insults; thank you for exposing yourself for the God-hating fool that you are.
Now, I ask you, what intuitive suggestions could a grade schooler give to elected officials. The answer is simple - none - other than what they are taught and what they are taught is socialism cloaked in the green mantle of environmentalism.
That's a cop-out however. We need to have truth in advertising, and also we need to make sure our communities are filled with people who have the same values that made this country great.
TEXAS Freepers - please call you elected officials! Hearings are tomorrow and the SBOE will vote in early November. Let's keep the pressure on!

While it is important to be aware of textbooks, it is also good to be familiar with other materials used. There are many teachers who do not use textbooks in classes, but the other materials are just as bad and are geared to the UN agenda as well.
Along with speaking out against such biased and ridiculous textbooks, those interested might also consider checking with classroom teachers and working to influence central committees who make the final decision on textbook selections for the districts and even for each school. The scarry thing is that it might be possible to stop bad textbooks from being adopted and still end up with UN agenda thru other materials used in the classroom. Safest bet is to homeschool, and if that can't be done, then read your child's books with them and counter the nonsense as you come across it.
