    Environmental Protection Agency officials require contractors to sign secrecy pledges that in the case of the Gold King Mine spill kept the public in the dark earlier this year about a Colorado mining disaster that turned waters yellow as they flowed through two states and the Navajo Nation. ... these secrecy clauses are typical with the EPA - the same government agency whose former administrator, Lisa Jackson, used an alias email address to avoid public scrutiny. ... the EPA controls the flow of information by circumventing federal regulations that dictate when an agency can use non-disclosure clauses by including secrecy...

    There is no government organization left that does not have a sustainable development plan in place, the lynchpin of U.N.’s Agenda 21. Now the U.N. elites are going to gain access into the mayors’ offices across the globe Another program/initiative will be implemented quietly around the country in 2016 while American citizens are blissfully unaware. The United States Council of Mayors (USCM) has announced in March 2015 that they are supporting the Global Parliament of Mayors. The announcement seems innocuous enough.

    Energy: The resident wants to decarbonize the planet by killing fossil-fuel production and its high-paying jobs. Almost no other nation is following his lead despite the promises that will be made at the Paris climate summit. Last week we learned in a Reuters report that Asia will build 500 coal-burning electric generation plants this year alone. An additional 1,000 are planned in China, India, Japan, Indonesia and other countries. The latest projections are that 40% of the added power generation in Southeast Asia by 2040 will be coal-fired. Does this sound like a continent that's taking the alarm bells of...

The spill that fouled rivers in three states would have been avoided had the EPA team checked on water levels inside the Gold King Mine before digging into a collapsed and leaking mine entrance, Interior Department investigators concluded.

Last month, the U.S. Air Force condemned the Groom Mine property when the family who owns it rejected a government buyout they felt was unjust.

They also expected the government would probably take the land through eminent domain even though the Sheahan's owned it since Abe...

    Progressivism will finally succeed in installing global socialism under the umbrella of U.N.'s Agenda 2030, dressed as Sustainable Development and Equality After forty years of socialist indoctrination in schools and LGBT activism, the progressive agenda is finally bearing fruit. Gloating that the Women of the Left and GLAAD were victorious over our country, a recent Rush Limbaugh caller said that our country is in such a mess right now, that Christians wont even help their own when religious rights are trampled. The warping and destruction of our childrens minds in schools is so complete, they now think the way feminist...

    Despite protests from Mesa County leaders, the Bureau of Land Management is rejecting calls to keep hundreds of trails on public lands from being closed off to use. BLM officials in Washington D.C. rejected all protests against the Grand Junction area Resource Management Plan in early August, but Mesa County commissioners said they didnt receive a notice of refusal from the federal agency until last week. In the rejection letter, federal officials said the county's complaints were without merit, and the B.L.M workers tasked with researching and writing the updated rule book for the public lands usage have done their...

    When it comes to garbage, the city of Seattle has launched a waste war. Nine full-time solid waste inspectors have been hired as part of a controversial program to check city trash to make sure people are recycling. Additionally, contracted waste haulers have been effectively deputized as trash police, given the authority to tag bins when people fail to recycle and compost enough. The program is now the subject of a lawsuit, as residents fume over what some call an intrusive government program. I understand people have noble goals, said Keli Carender, who got tagged two weeks in a row,...

    If you had a time machine and could travel back to 1992 as the UNs Earth Summit was underway, and you knew what you know now about Agenda 21, imagine the actions you could take to stop it in its tracks. You wouldnt have to wonder what the NGOs who created it had in mind. You wouldnt have to trust the news media to tell you the details. You would know, just as the NGOs, Nancy Pelosi and all the others openly told you, Agenda 21 is a comprehensive blue print for the reorganization of human society.

    UNITED NATIONS The Obama administrations immigration policy should come into clearer focus when world leaders gather at the United Nations later this month for the General Assembly. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon will convene a special meeting on the refugee crisis, and the outcome will provide a roadmap for U.S. policy. The Obama administration has been adopting U.N. guidance on immigration, such as the U.N.s recommendation to move away from the detention of all migrants particularly unaccompanied minors, and families with children. Aim to eradicate the detention of children completely Age verification is not a justification for...

    A Colorado coal mine slated for closure due to a technicality has gotten a reprieve from the federal government in a move that could save hundreds of jobs. The Colowyo coal mine, which has provided hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars to the economy of the city of Craig and the northwestern region of the state since 1977 was in danger of being closed because a renewal permit drafted eight years ago did not take into account the mine's impact on climate change. An environmental group sued in a bid to invalidate the permit. A court-ordered review by the...

    (CNN)NASA's rockets are astounding machines, capable of blasting into space at thousands of miles per hour and withstanding temperatures twice the melting point of steel. But they can't take off underwater. Rising sea levels caused by melting ice caps threaten to disrupt a handful of NASA launch sites along U.S. coastlines, the space agency warns. In the coming years, launch facilities at Florida's Kennedy Space Center and other places may need to be retrofitted or even moved inland, NASA says. "Every NASA center has its own set of vulnerabilities, and some are more at risk than others," NASA climatologist...

    Your socially-engineered and indoctrinated kids will be dancing and singing in school praises to the Blue Zone Project. Is it Orwellian enough for you yet? The late Henry Lamb and Tom DeWeese have been working tirelessly for decades to unravel the thorny and terrifying tentacles of U.N.s Agenda 21, a soft law signed in 1992 by 178 countries. But the idea of a one world government/order has been around since the turn of the 20th century. It suffices to look at the back of a dollar bill to see the evidence. Featured prominently under the Masonic Pyramid are the Latin...
