Liberal Pro-life, Feminists, Anti-War, Gay Activist More Radical Than Conservative Debbie Pelley
On Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development
(Several of you have seen how Arkansas Times blog has called me radical and many other similar and worse names. Now a left leaning Democrat proves to be more radical than I on Agenda 21.
This email is a follow up of the email I sent to you earlier today containing a letter to the editor that I wrote that can now be read online at this link: http://www.wpaag.org/Agenda%2021%20-%20Let%20to%20Ed%20Dan%20Burden%20in%20J'boro%20Plan.htm. That letter was about how Arkansas is now using Dan Burden, one of the most radical environmentalists as an expert in transportation planning. Dan Burden wants to take cities back 100 years where transportation consists of bikeways, walkways, and mass transit - where a car is not needed to get around town.
Following are some quotes from a self described liberal Democrat in her book entitled Behind The Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21 The author, Rosa Koire from California, describes herself this way: "I am a Democrat, and have been since I first registered to vote in 1974. The relevance of my party affiliation is that I have always been a liberal. I’ve only voted for a Republican once...I am pro-choice, anti-war, a feminist, and gay...I thought Bush stole the election. Twice."
The author, Rosa Koire, is an experienced assessor for eminent domain properties and ran into a personal experience with her own property and began a long journey through lawsuits, etc. to discover where all this government bureaucracy was coming from and what the future plans are. Her employment background helped her tremendously in discovering the truth and living in California experienced the U.N. Agenda 21 Plan in a more advanced stage than in some other areas. She describes and documents in detail many of the same things I have learned about Agenda 21 and sustainable development, but knows much more than I have learned. Her documented material will help me pinpoint exactly how the local organizations are implementing these reforms and where to go for the evidence.
Quotes from Behind The Green Mask by Rosa Koire
page 63 The Green Mask is that you'll have cleaner air, less pollution, more time for your families, green jobs, lower costs, and a better, more vibrantly walkable, bikeable life. (This is the same message you get from Dan Burden's writings and from other environmentalists. (Many of Dan Burden's quotes can be found at this link: http://www.wpaag.org/Sustainable%20Dev%20-%20Quotes%20from%20Dan%20Burden%20video.htm)
page 94 - She was a paid lobbyist for Smart Growth--and no one knew it. Before we moved to Santa Rosa she had hired Dan Burden, a well-known Smart Growth advocate, to come to the neighborhood and give a seminar on redesigning Mendocino Avenue, the main street through our area. It is the main alternate to the freeway and is four lanes. Jenny and Dan, however, thought it would be much better with just two lanes and a big median planter: traffic calming! Four wheels bad, two wheels good. [Then the author describes a following meeting that made her feel like she had "dropped into the Twilight Zone" That is much the same feeling I have when I look at all that is going on and when we first attended the Jonesboro area MPO. See this link for what we learned that night - that our MPO Director believes that not only will our children and grandchildren be riding bikes and walking rather than using cars but that we older adults will as well. http://www.wpaag.org/Agenda%2021%20Carless%20Soc%20J'boro%20MPO%20Mtg.htm
page 8 - There is a plan for world government that is in place and eating like a metastasized cancer into every nation, free and bound, in the world. Under the banner of saving the planet we are drowning liberty.
page 12-13 Page 12 &13 Have you wondered where these terms ‘sustainability’ and ‘Smart Growth’ and ‘high density urban mixed use development’ came from? Doesn’t it seem that about 10 years ago you’d never heart of them and now everything seems to include thee buzz words? Is that just a coincidence? That every town and county and state and nation in the world would be changing their land use/planning codes and government policies to align themselves with...what?...Wile many support the United nations for its peacemaking efforts, few know that it has very specific land use policies that it wants implemented in every city, county, state, and nation. The specific plan is called United Nations Agenda 21 Sustainable Development, which has its basis in Communitarianism. By now, most Americans have heard of sustainable development but are largely unaware of Agenda 21: the agenda for the twenty-first century.
In a nutshell, the plan calls for governments to take control of all land use and not leave any of the decision making in the hands of private property owners.
UN Agenda 21 cites the affluence of Americans as being a major problem which needs to be corrected. It calls for lowering the standard of living for Americans so that the people in poorer countries will have more; a redistribution of wealth. Although people around the world aspire to achieve the levels of prosperity we have in our country, and will risk their lives to get here, Americans are cast in a very negative light and will be taken down to a condition closer to average in the world. Only then will there be social justice which is a cornerstone of the UN Agenda 21 plan.
The guidebook, [a legislative guidebook] and it’s not just a guidebook but a blueprint, contains sample legislation, ordinances, rules, regulations and statues to be incorporated into the General Plans of every single city and county in the United States. By 2002 every planning department and every local, state, and federal department that governs land use had a copy and was implementing the practices. Every university, every college, every junior college, private school and teaching institution in our nation was using Growing Smart in its curriculum. Sound familiar? Growing Smart is Smart Growth. [Jonesboro MPO showed a video on Smart Growth at one of its meetings and proudly admit their plan is a Smart Growth plan.]
Page 14 - A non governmental organization called the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives, ICLEI, is tasked with carrying out the goals of UN Agenda 21 locally. Over 600 cities and counties in the U.S. are members. The costs are paid by taxpayers. [Some cities have rescinded membership in ICLEI at the insistence of citizens, but everything can be done without being part of ICLEI]
page 10 - You are ‘selfish’ if you insist on your individual rights and freedoms. This is the justification for UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. For the good of the planet. For everyone’s security. For your health, To protect your children. To limit workplace violence. To stop bullying. To protect the ‘rights’ of those in the future.
page 15 Redevelopment is a tool used to further the Agenda 21 vision of remaking America’s cities. With redevelopment, cities have the right to take property by eminent domain—against the will of the property owner, and give it or sell it to a private developer. By declaring an area of town ‘blighted’ (and in some cities over 90% of the city area has been declared blighted) the property taxes in that area are diverted away from the General Fund. This constriction of available funds is impoverishing the cities, forcing them to offer less and less services, and reducing your standard of living...The money gets redirected into the Redevelopment Agency and handed out to favored developers building low income housing and mixed use. Smart Growth. Cities have had thousands of condos built in the redevelopment areas and are telling you that you are terrible for wanting your own yard, for wanting privacy, for not wanting to be dictated to by a Condo Homeowner’s Association Board, for being anti-social, for not going along to get along, for not moving into a cramped overpriced apartment, downtown where they can use your property taxes for paying off that he bond debt. But it’s not working, and you don’t want to move in there. So they have to make you. Read on
Page 16 - Human habitation as it is referred to now, is restricted to lands within the Urban Growth Boundaries of the city. Only certain building designs are permitted...Rural property is more and more restricted in what uses can be on it...County roads are not being paved. The push is for people to get off the land, become more dependent, come into the cities. To get out of the suburbs and into the cities. Out of their private homes and into condos. Out of their private cars and on their bikes.
Bikes. What does that have to do with it? I like to ride my bike and so do you. So what. Bicycle advocacy groups are very powerful now. Advocacy. A fancy word for lobbying, influencing, and maybe strong-arming the public and politicians. What’s the connection with bike groups? National groups such as Complete Streets, Thunderhead Alliance, and others, have training programs teaching their members how to pressure for redevelopment and training candidates for office. It’s not just about bike lanes; it’s about remaking cities and rural areas to the ‘sustainable model.’ High density urban development without parking for cars is the goal. They call them ‘Transit Villages.’ This means that whole towns need to be demolished and rebuilt in the image of sustainable development. Bike groups, often dominated by testosterone-laden zealots, are being used as the ‘shock troops’ for this plan.
This plan is a whole life plan. It involves the educational system, the energy market, the transportation system, the governmental system, the health care system, food production, and more. It is a plan to inventory and control all of the natural resources, means of production, and human beings in the world.
p. 63 Basically it’s a stack-em and pack-em housing model for an enormous UN Agenda 21/ICLEI plan. Moving you out of your rural and suburban home into a tightly designed, easily monitored apartment or condo with no space for your car and lousy public transportation. The story you’ll hear is that the only way that people will take public transportation is if they are crowded into downtown areas, and giving up cars is the main way to stop greenhouse gases... We’re told that driving is anti-social and besides WE NEED EXERCISE! There will be less pollution because no one will have a car.
page 17 Slowly, people will not be able to afford single family homes. Will not be able to afford private cars. Will be more dependent. More restricted. More easily watched and monitored.
p. 62 "Bur regionalization is linking housing with transportation funding for the first time in a play-ball-or starve effort. The regional agencies are working with the federal government and non-profits like ICLEI to entrap the locals. Why? Because the goal is one world government. Really. Regions can refer to groups of counties, groupings of states, and ultimately, clusters of nations--like the European Union. Finally it will move to a single government. This is an incremental transfer of rights and it starts locally [but the design and force comes from the United Nations and the Federal Government.
PAGE 67 - MEETING ARE ORGANIZED BY TWO REGIONAL GROUPS: In your area they will be called something similar, like a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), and a Council of Governments (COG). These two regional planning groups are comprised of selected city council members and county supervisors from all over the regions, who are responsible for putting UN Agenda 21 Sustainable Communities Strategies into place. The will partner with non-profit groups...By partnering with a private group like Greenbelt Alliance your government can give grants to private organizations as consultants who will design trainings without your oversight or knowledge. [Note: That is what they did with Dan Burden training. The workshop that Jonesboro locals attended was headed up by AARP and called EPA training.]

p. 45 – At the 1992 Rio Earth Summit where the Agenda for the 21st Century was introduced, Chairman Maurice Strong said: “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable. A shift is necessary which will require a vast strengthening of the multilateral system, including the United Nations.
This quote is not in the book but fits in quite well with it. It answers the question Is Capitalism Sustainable:
“Is free-market development sustainable? After all, it’s only been around for 200 years. Obviously, most of the folks gathering next week at the U.N. conference in Rio don’t think so. Last September a U.N.-sponsored activist conference issued a declaration, Sustainable Societies, Responsive Citizens, that urged the replacement of “the current economic model, which promotes unsustainable consumption and production patterns, facilitates a grossly inequitable trading system, fails to eradicate poverty, assists in the exploitation of natural resources to the verge of extinction and total depletion, and has induced multiple crises on Earth” with “sustainable economies in the community, local, national, regional and international spheres.” http://reason.com/archives/2012/06/12/free-markets-are-sustainable-development “Free Markets = Sustainable Development – Without capitalism, true sustainability is impossible by Ronald Bailey, June 12, 2012.”
p. 58 – Water rights are the new battleground, as you are aware. Whether it’s the Delta Peripheral Canal, commercial fishing restrictions, species protection that calls for creek setbacks, reducgtion in reiver flow diversion, or dam destruction, it’s all for the ‘greater good.” According to UN Agenda 21 dams are ‘unsustainable.’ Look at pages 728 to 763 of the UN Global Biodiversity Assessment for lots of other unsustainable constructions and targeted activities (including golf and ski runs…this [demolition of the Elwha River Dams in Washington State] will demolish two electricity-generating dams…the cost of demolition and habitat restoration is $325 million.
p. 61 – Another example of another way to remove rural human populations is the decision by Sonoma County Supervisors in December 2010 to pave only 150 miles of the more than 1,380 miles of rural county roads. A December 31, 2010 article in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat states that federal funding favors more urban, populated areas and there is not enough money to pave in rural areas. The plan is to pulverize many roads and return them to gravel…Think that will have an impact on rural property values? On farming? [I have already read articles online about pulverizing blacktop roads and returning them to gravel in the Northeastern states].
p. 61 - The Rotten Tomato Award goes to the White House Rural Council. Apparently established on the lines of the President’s Coouncil on Sustainable Development, this extra-governmental board made up of over twenty-five government agencies will put rural America back to work, make your tractor street-legal, micro-chip your cows, and…well. I ‘ll let the White House Rural Council website tellyou: [then author gives quotes its functions, one of them being public/private partnerships…picking winners and losers?
From Democrats Against U. N. Agenda 21 - From article entitled: SOUNDS LIKE SCIENCE FICTION...OR SOME CONSPIRACY THEORY...BUT IT ISN'T. " It's time that people educate themselves and read the document and related commentary. After that, get a copy of your city or county's General Plan and read it. You will find all sorts of policies that are nearly identical to those in U.N. Agenda 21. Unfortunately, their policies have advanced largely unnoticed and we are now in the end game. People need to identify their elected officials who are promoting the U.N.'s policies and hold them accountable for their actions. Only when we've identified who the people are and what they are trying to do will we be able to evaluate whether or not we approve of the policies they are putting forward. Some people may think it's appropriate for agencies outside the United States to set our policies and some people will not. The question is, aren't Americans able to develop their own policies? Should we rely on an organization that consists of member nations that have different forms of governments, most of which do not value individual rights as much as we do? It's time to bring U.N. Agenda 21 out in the open where we can have these debates and then set our own policies in accordance with our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
