Agenda 21, Stealing Your Property

by Jan Farrar

Webster’s dictionary describes and defines Agenda as a noun, (a person, place or thing); 1. A list or outline of things to be considered or done, 2. An underlying, often ideological plan or program. The word ideological, a formulated thought or opinion, is individual and may or may not be accepted by others. Many of us have many ideas. As a mom, I many times have set an agenda for my day, for my children’s chores, for our vacations and as a nurse and a teacher, for my work day. Things we do, things we should have done and things that we want to see done. If you don’t have your agenda, no worries, the United Nations, US Federal Government and your local communities have one for you.

In 1992 the Earth Summit formulated a policy for the world environmental movement. They issued AGENDA 21.  This is a specific, intricate detailed book, for global biodiversity assessment for the 21st century. The General Secretary of the summit stated, “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning and suburban housing are not sustainable.” The plan is to control eating, driving a vehicle, your personal lifestyle and where you live. This plan is to be implemented by every one person on the earth. In 1976 the United Nations reported, “Land, because of its unique nature, and the crucial role it plays in human settlements cannot be treated as ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the markets. Private ownership is also a principal instrument of the accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice. If unchecked, it may become a major obstacle of the planning and implementation of the development schemes.”

The time is here, the time is now. Our former presidents signed on and our current administration is implementing numerous A21 executive orders. More is occurring at the state, city and local levels. Our own state of Missouri has been on board for some time and local communities are seeing this through “community betterment projects.” Other buzz words are, “sustainable development,” The three E’s: Environment, Economy and Social Equity, also known as the “Triple Bottom Line,” and “Smart growth.”

You might see your community supporting pedestrian and bicycle development, using public transit to lessen fossil fuel usage and lower carbon emissions, building community wide biking and pedestrian sidewalks,communities using the new “green” energy alternatives. You might see your community placing restrictions on private landowners in the name of environmental protection and conservation of natural resources. You will see Non-Governmental Organizations, gaining more control over private land to use as “green space.” You will have Earth Charter, the Sierra Club Cool Cities Initiative, the Audubon Society’s Sustainable Community Imitative or the Mayors’ Climate Protection Agreement. You will hear the use of words, “transition town, or “livable community,” “Visioning,” and begin teaching through your local schools.

The United Nations programs has a plan to control over all human activity from what we eat and drink, our mode of transportation to what we teach our children and to our land ownership. This is taking place in our very on local area.  You may not have your own personal agenda, but not to worry, the United Nations, the United States Government and many local communities have one planned for “you”. And, by default you are accepting this agenda daily. We must wake up to what has happened over the past 23 years and become more vigilant in stopping the final takeover of our liberty.

Common Core State Standards are federalizing your child’s future

by Karen Schroeder of Advocates for Academic Freedom.

The American educational system is being federalized through implementation of Race to the Top and Common Core State Standards. Once CCSS are completely implemented, the federal government will have control of assessment tools and textbooks used in core subjects. Also, a national data collection system called State Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) will be used to determine a child’s educational opportunities. The federalization of education will turn all school-choice programs into federally approved programs.

The International Baccalaureate is a set of standards which are shaped by several United Nations treaties.  International Baccalaureate Organization explains that IB and CCSS share the values and beliefs of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights with emphasis on Article 26.

This means that CCSS and IB programs are teaching beliefs and values contained in treaties that the United States does not support.  These values include the surrender of the American Constitution, of national sovereignty, and of individual rights so students will accept becoming members of the “world community”. The CCSS standards focus on changing the social and political values of American children. Few goals address academics; math standards actually lower expectations. What had been required from a fourth grade student is now required from a fifth grader.

The national data collection system (SLDS) will follow a child from Kindergarten to adulthood. A student’s IQ scores, test scores, and his disciplinary and medical records will become part of the collected data which will help determine educational and job opportunities afforded each student.

Once these systems are in place, all students in every educational setting will have to meet these state standards if they are going to pass the state-created assessment tools. Therefore, the education provided in every setting must include the curricula presented in state schools.

To accomplish these goals, the federal government has cooperated with companies to write textbooks that meet the goals of CCSS and IB. The federal government is funding organizations that will create testing tools to assess the student’s progress in accepting the social and political ideologies being taught in the classroom. Implementation of CCSS is expected to be completed within the next two to three years.

The only effective means of preventing international control of the American educational system is to eliminate the federal funding of education. Advocates for Academic Freedom is an educational consulting firm working with legislators across the United States to organize a conservative movement to eliminate federal control of education. Visit the Advocates for Academic Freedom home page, find the Petition for Progress button on the left side of the page, click on that button and sign the petition. To stop the federalization of education, we must have proof that there is sufficient support from the electorate. Please sign the petition and become a member of the grassroots movement to limit federal governmental control by removing federal funding of education and reallocating those funds to the states.

United Nations Approves Small Arms Treaty

By Katie Pavlich

Apr 02, 2013

The United Nations has approved the Small Arms Trade Treaty. More from WAPO:

The U.N. General Assembly voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to create the first international treaty regulating the global arms trade, a landmark decision that imposes new constraints on the sale of conventional arms to governments and armed groups that commit war crimes, genocide and other mass atrocities.

The U.N. vote was hailed by arms-control advocates and scores of governments, including the United States, as a major step in the global effort to enforce basic controls on the $70 billion international arms trade. But it was denounced by Iran, North Korea and Syria for imposing restrictions that prevent smaller states from buying and selling weapons to ensure their self-defense.

And of course, far left groups are already celebrating by slamming the NRA, despite insisting for months the treaty will do nothing to curtail Second Amendment Rights. Amnesty International released the following statement about the passing of the treaty:

NRA Fails to Stop UN Arms Treaty: Human Rights Victory Today To Protect Children

“Today’s victory shows that ordinary people who care about protecting human rights can fight back to stop the gun lobby dead in its tracks, helping to save countless lives. The voices of reason triumphed over skeptics, treaty opponents and dealers in death to establish a revolutionary treaty that constitutes a major step toward keeping assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons out of the hands of despots and warlords who use them to kill and maim civilians, recruit child soldiers and commit other serious abuses. Iran, Syria and North Korea blocked consensus at the U.N., while the NRA cynically – and ultimately unsuccessfully – tried to erode the U.S. government’s support through a campaign of lies about the treaty. But in the end, the global call for responsibility in the arms trade won out.

“Amnesty International played a leading role in initiating the campaign for this treaty nearly 20 years ago and has fought tirelessly to stop weapons from being sent to countries where we know they are used to commit human rights atrocities. This has been a life-saving struggle that never could have been achieved without the support of millions of human rights activists who stepped forward to demand change. We call on President Obama to be first in line on June 3 when the treaty opens for signature.”

As a reminder, this treaty does in fact impact Second Amendment rights of American citizens. Not to mention, if the treaty were to be ratified by the Senate (which it won’t be) the Department of Justice and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms would enforce it. What could go wrong?

For nearly 20 years, the NRA has worked tirelessly to oppose any United Nations effort to undermine the constitutional rights of law-abiding American gun owners.  The latest attempt by the U.N. and global gun banners to eliminate our Second Amendment freedoms is to include civilian arms in the current Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

CCTP Speakers Series – Doreen Hannes – Controlling The Food

Doreen Hannes provided a particularly troubling view of the control of our food supply by the Federal Government and the United Nations.  It is a great segue to the Agenda 21 speaker, Ray Cunio, that will speak on 4/17/12 at our monthly Third Tuesday Tea Time.

A couple of tidbits that stood out with me is, due to stifling regulations,  by volume, 20% of the U.S. food supply is grown / harvested / created outside the United States with larger percentages in various categories:

  • 99% of the grapefruit juice we drink is produced on American soil
  • 25% of orange juice is imported
  • 50% of fresh fruit is imported
  • 86% of the shrimp, salmon, tilapia and other fish and shellfish
  • 85% of the apple juice we drink is imported
  • 44% of the dry peas and lentils Americans consume are imported

And, only 2% of Americans are engaged in Agriculture.

Doreen provided some information to be distributed at the 3/24/12 event, but the e-mail go mixed up somewhere in ‘the cloud’.

Here are the documents she provided for the event:
