WHY ARE AMERICANS IGNORANT OF ‘AGENDA 21′?

WHY ARE AMERICANS IGNORANT OF ‘AGENDA 21′?

The
United
Nations Agenda 21
was signed by the United States in 1992 and
14 years later, people are still in the dark. If you were to ask at
random the question, “Have you heard of Agenda 21?” the answer would
be an over-whelming “No,” although it is being implemented in every
local community.

Agenda
21 is a 40 chapter document listing goals to be achieved globally.
It is the global plan to change the way we “live, eat, learn and communicate”
because we must “save the earth.”

“Its
regulation would severely limit water, electricity, and transportation
– even deny human access to our most treasured wilderness areas, it
would monitor all lands and people. No one would be free from the
watchful eye of the new global tracking and information system,” according
to Berit Kjos, author of Brave
New Schools
.

Maurice
Strong
, Secretary-general of the 1992 United Nations Conference
on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro said, “…[C]urrent
lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class –
involving high meat consumption and large amounts of frozen and convenience
foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and workplace 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.

In
other words, the Global plan is for us to live on the level of third
world nations. That means no box mixes or microwave meals, limited
use of fuel of any kind, no air-conditioning and very little meat.
When the cost of freon skyrocketed, when mad cow disease hit, the
National Animal Identification System introduced, the price of fuel
soared, it has become apparent that given time, these sustainable
controls will be put into place – one way or another – and the Global
Governance is powerful.

In
1992, Agenda 21 began to change our lives. In that same year, Al Gore
wrote his book, Earth in the Balance. To advance his cause,
he has now written another piece of fiction entitled, An Inconvenient
Truth
about global warming…..he even starred in the movie. He
also thinks he invented the internet.

Although
groundwork had been laid, it took a Bill Clinton to actually introduce
something so invasive to our nation and get by with it without the
public becoming aware. President Clinton appointed his “President’s
Council on Sustainable Development” and he literally gave away the
rights and freedoms the framers of the Constitution had provided.

People
in the United States may not know about Agenda 21 and the President’s
Council on Sustainable Development, but people around the world do.
They know that Chicago has one of the greatest numbers of activities
existing at the local, neighborhood and/or microregional level. They
also know that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
monitors and promotes activities in this field through their Office
for Sustainable Ecosystem and Communities.

Found
on a Slovakian website: “To the leading countries in the field of
development but especially of practical using of sustainable development
indicators belong to the U.S.A. At the top level these activities
are promoted by the President’s Council on Sustainable Development
(1996), which defined a set of ten national goals toward sustainable
development. These goals express in concrete terms the elements of
sustainability. Alongside the goals are suggested indicators that
can be used to help measure progress toward achieving them.”

Agenda
21 is certainly not a secret. The internet is full of how Agenda 21
has been fulfilled through Smart Growth planning, land use, sustainable
development and extreme environmentalism. The so-called agenda is
grant driven to your city council or county board in terms of sustainable,
visioning, partners, tourism and stakeholders, along with consensus
and other terms with the intent to make you believe we are running
out of all our resources and we must do our part and “save for tomorrow.
[See Agenda 21’s Table
of Contents
.]

It
has nothing to do about “saving anything” – it has everything to do
with “control.” Sadly, very few congressmen even know Agenda 21 is
actually running our country when they are voting to send grant money
back home. Agenda 21 is incentive driven as the planners know that
greed in the heart of man will be his downfall.

The
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, better known as ANWR, has oil we
need to be drilling for the security of our nation. Environmentalists
don’t seem to understand we are dependent on foreign oil from nations
who do not like us and our nation’s defense is at stake. The area
where drilling would occur is just a dot in this vast land, yet they
would gamble the strength of our nation in behalf of their favorite
word –”pristine.”

At
the same time, technology is advancing and we may not need the oil
later. But we do need it now.

Henry
Lamb of Eco-logic, Restructuring the U.N.,

The
world changed on 9-11. No longer can the world tilt at the windmills
of a fantasized “global village.” No longer can visions of “sustainable
development” be justified in a world where “sustainable freedom” is
the only possible solution to the economic and power vacuum that foments
acts of terrorism.

There
is a better way.

Nations
can and, ultimately, must learn to live as neighbors, free from the
web of “international laws” that dictate which activities are “sustainable”
and which are xenophobic and unacceptable. Nation-to-nation relationships,
just like neighbor-to-neighbor relationships, should be fashioned
voluntarily, driven by mutual benefit. For the first time in a century,
the United States may be exploring this possibility.

Henry
Lamb is right. We can live as neighbors with other nations but we
do not need to live under a “web of international law.” There are
dedicated citizens in the United States who are wise enough to set
our nation’s guidelines without following Agenda 21 and Sustainable
Development as set forth by the United Nations. [See DVD: Liberty
or Sustainable Development
?]

One
of the main goals of Agenda 21 is to redistribute the wealth to third
world countries and to bring our great nation to its knees in the
name of socialism, fascism, communism or some other “ism.” Our founding
fathers founded this nation on the belief of a Sovereign God and we
have been blessed. Do you know the Gods of the nations to which we
would become equal?

It is Marxist in its roots, stifling in its influence, and destructive in its effects Politically Correct Terrorism, and the Invincible Ignorance of the Left

Posted by marionvalentine66 in Uncategorized on November 22, 2009 | Edit

  By Jim O’Neill  Saturday, November 21, 2009Europe is no longer Europe, it is Eurabia, a colony of Islam,
where the Islamic invasion does not proceed only in a physical sense,
but also in a mental and cultural sense.  Servility to the invaders has
poisoned democracy, with obvious consequences for the freedom of
thought, and for the concept…of liberty.”
— Oriana Fallaci Italian journalist/author/activist (1929-2006)“…as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.” —General George W. Casey,  U.S. Army Chief of Staff, speaking of the murders committed by an Islamic terrorist at Ft. Hood

“Politically correct.”  Leave it to the Left to come up with an
Orwellian concept that muzzles free speech, stifles free thought,
suppresses free choice, and then claim that it frees you.

“Politically correct”—as if any other way of thinking, speaking, or behaving, is incorrect.

If you are politically incorrect, then you are not following the
party line—your politics are somehow out of sync, and you must be
brought back into alignment with the correct, approved way of thinking,
speaking, and behaving—for the good of the collective.

As the Star Trek Borg would say, “Resistance is futile.  You will be assimilated.”

Sadly, an increasing number of people seem all too willing to hand
over the reins of their free will to the collective, and get
assimilated.  They are content, even eager, to exchange the struggle
and rewards of personal endeavor, for numb acquiescence to the “thought
police.”

It is Marxist in its roots, stifling in its influence, and destructive in its effects

Political Correctness (PC) seeks to impose a uniformity of thought,
word, and behavior on all Americans.  It is Marxist in its roots,
stifling in its influence, and destructive in its effects.  It is
diametrically opposed to the traditional American values of free
speech, free thought, and freedom itself.

As G.K. Chesterton noted years ago, “Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”

Or as I note today, “Bulls—t, is bullsh—t, no matter what cologne
you spray on it.”  No doubt my statement lacks some of Chesterton’s
savoir-faire, but nonetheless, it is perhaps the more striking meme.

PC is a social virus—of an especially virulent variety.  Step out of
line, and the PC watch dogs will attack with vociferous verbal tirades,
and threaten with fines, or even jail-time.  Political correctness is
essentially a political extortion racket—shut up, or else.

Agustin Blazquez and Jaums Sutton summed it up well in an article
they wrote seven years ago, “Political Correctness remains just what it
was intended to be: a sophisticated and dangerous form of censorship
and oppression, imposed upon the citizenry with the ultimate goal of
manipulating, brainwashing, and destroying our society.”

Antonio Gramsci: Marxism can best be spread in the West by subverting Western culture

One can trace PC’s roots back to Antonio Gramsci, who helped found
and lead the Italian Communist Party during the early part of the last
century.  Gramsci’s ideas and writings were, and are, very influential
in spreading the idea that Marxism can best be spread in the West by
subverting Western culture—i.e. infiltrating and dismantling the
culture from within.  He coupled this, with a process he called
“cultural hegemony.”

According to Wikipedia, “Cultural hegemony is…the dominance of one
social group over another, i.e. the ruling class over all other
classes. The ideas of the ruling class come to be seen as the norm;
they are seen as universal ideologies, perceived to benefit everyone,
whilst only really benefiting the ruling class.”

Gramsci’s concepts of cultural infiltration and cultural hegemony
were influential at the German University of Frankfurt adjunct, the
Institute for Social Research (ISR), founded in the early 1920s.

The ISR attracted a coterie of Marxists who combined Gramsci’s
teachings with Freudian psychology, and other ingredients, in a potent
witch’s brew.  Many of the teachers at the so called “Frankfurt School”
left for the United States, when Hitler’s Fascism (the “wrong type” of
collectivism) rose to power in Germany during the 1930s.

The “Frankfurt School” teachings infested American academia, where
it slowly spread, until going viral in the 1960s.  One of the more
insidious manifestations of Gramsci’s doctrines, is “political
correctness” which, with a little help from Mao, first gained momentum
on college and university campuses.

Chairman Mao’s “Little Red Book
was all the rage on college campuses in the late 1960s.  One of Mao’s
quotes from that book is, “…go to the masses and propagate and
explain these ideas until the masses embrace them as their own…  And so
on, over and over again in an endless spiral, with the ideas becoming
more correct….  Such is the Marxist theory of knowledge.”

Read “more correct,” as “more Marxist.”

To a large extent, America’s teachers these days, are not teachers
in the traditional sense at all—i.e. Instructing their students in the
fundamentals, and how to think for themselves.  They are political
ideologues who indoctrinate their students in what to think—not how to
think.  Note the NEA’s recent glowing endorsement of Saul Alinsky’s
“Rules for Radicals.”  (You may want to read my article on the topic).

Global Collectivists, by whatever name—Marxist, Statist, Socialist, Fascist, Communist, Progressive, Communitarian, Fabian

The majority of America’s teachers are wolves in sheep’s clothing—as
are many lawyers, politicians, judges, scientists, etc.  Behind the
masks of the various labels they hide behind, and trades they ply, they
are committed collectivist ideologues.

Some of them even hide behind the mask of “a conservative Republican.”

They are Global Collectivists, by whatever name—Marxist, Statist,
Socialist, Fascist, Communist, Progressive, Communitarian, Fabian,
etc.  They want to destroy America’s middle class, and force us all to
be subservient to an all powerful planetary regime—a “workers utopia”
controlled by a global “cultural hegemony” of big banks, large
corporations, and a Ruling Elite.

“We the people,” as a free and democratic republic, are perilously
close to being swept into the dustbin of history.  It is only through
God’s grace, and the brave and tireless efforts of (largely unheralded)
patriotic Americans, that it hasn’t happened already.

It is important that we realize that these Global Collectivists have
no interest in the truth—none whatsoever.  “The end justifies the
means” to these people; the fact that their “end” is vague, ephemeral,
and bogus, notwithstanding.

That means that they lie.  Couple their “the end justifies the
means” philosophy, with doctrines rooted in atheism, and you have a
moral/philosophical foundation firmly grounded in shifting quicksand.
You cannot trust a thing these weasels tell you.  Ever.

What they tell you may be the truth, but just as likely it is not.
It doesn’t matter to them.  They have no reason to be anything but
self-serving narcissists, and lying is simply seen as one more tool in
their bag of tricks.  After all, their glorious “end”—a workers
utopia—justifies any “means.”  Right?

They not only dismiss the truth as being relative, malleable, and
ultimately unknowable, but they refuse to acknowledge the truth when it
stares them in the face, or bites them in the butt, as the case may
be.

Witness the “scientists” who decry the findings of Intelligent
Design as being “theological nonsense,” or the climate “scientists” who
close their minds to any data that doesn’t conform to their politically
motivated findings.  These “scientists,” aren’t scientists—they are
ideological hacks.  Many “teachers,” aren’t teachers—they are
ideological propagandists.  Many government “representatives,” aren’t
representatives—they are ideological con-artists.  And on, and on, ad
nauseum.

(Yes, there are numerous exceptions to the above, but such
exceptions are often afraid of speaking out for fear of ridicule,
censure, fines, and/or dismissal).

These brainwashed ideological drones (many of whom are quite bright)
are largely incapable of seeing the truth.  It is a rara avis indeed,
who leaves the flock once they are indoctrinated.

The fact that during the 20th century, collectivism was responsible
for over 100 million deaths, does not register with them.  The fact
that the only reason that socialist countries work at all, is because
of the remnants of capitalism they retain—doesn’t compute.

These Global Collectivists suffer from Invincible Ignorance
(ignorantia invinciblis).  That is, they are willfully blind to
anything that runs counter to their political mind-set.
Nothing—certainly not the mere truth—will change their minds.

They are not interested in the truth; they are only interested in their agenda.

Soviets were totalitarian, power-hungry and expansionist brutes that started and prolonged the Cold War

Reporter Jamie Glazov ran into this wall of Invincible Ignorance,
when he was working on his doctorate (in Cold War history).  He writes,
“When the Soviet archives were opened after the fall of the Soviet
tyranny in 1991, I hungrily devoured all the information…in
declassified documents, disclosures from former Soviet officials, etc.

Glazov found that the newly available documents “confirmed and
substantiated what conservatives had been arguing for decades…that the
Soviets were totalitarian, power-hungry and expansionist brutes that
started and prolonged the Cold War.”

With this new found proof, Glazov confronted his liberal associates, but he reports
that, “When I approached my colleagues with this new evidence…instead
of hearing a mea culpa, a stated regret, or admission of some kind of
lesson learned, all that I witnessed, (in a manner that remains
extremely eerie for me to remember), was a callous indifference and
smug contempt for the issues at hand.”

Invincible Ignorance.  They don’t care about the truth.

But they care very much about forcing other people to think, talk, and act in a certain way—a politically correct way.

In the world of the politically correct, if you disagree with Obama
you’re a racist, if you disagree with Education Czar Kevin Jennings
you’re a homophobe, if you disagree with NOW you’re a sexist, and if
you disagree with Islam or Sharia Law you’re a Islamaphobe.

In the world of the politically correct, anyone who questions Islam,
for any reason, is politically incorrect.  Such a stance is suicidally
infantile.  It will lead to the destruction of America.

Which, of course, is just fine with the Global Collectivists—which
is why the radical left is in bed with Islamic extremists.  Strange
bedfellows indeed, but in line with the old saw, “My enemies enemy is
my friend.”  They see no reason not to join forces—for the
duration—until America is destroyed.

Let me hasten to add that I am not opposed to Islam per se.  There
are many decent, wonderful followers of Allah.  Islam has contributed
much of value to the world.  I enjoy the works of the 13th century
Muslim poet, Jelaluddin Rumi.  I am not anti-Islam.

I am, however, strongly opposed to Islamic extremists, or accepting
Sharia Law in the U.S.  I do not welcome the “Islamification” of
America.

If that makes me some sort of “redneck Islamaphobe,” then so be it—I’ll proudly be one.

According to the asinine protocols of political correctness, any
preemptive actions taken against suspected Islamic extremists, in order
to safeguard America’s safety, sovereignty, and freedom, are taboo.
That insane nonsense must stop.

Supporting diversity is one thing, enabling suicidal ineptitude is another.

(Permit me a short aside:  To my mind, political correctness has
made America much too passive.  Passive behavior is fueled by a lack of
self-respect, while the equally undesirable, aggressive behavior, stems
from a lack of respect for others.  The healthy alternative—assertive
behavior—comes from respecting others, AND yourself.  Patriotic
Americans need to be much more assertive (not aggressive, and certainly
not passive), both collectively, and individually).

The media outlets recently reported on how government agencies
foiled several terrorist plots against various targets around America.
These news stories were a slight indication of an ongoing “behind the
scenes” battle that is being fought everyday across America.

There is, however, another more subtle form of dangerous Islamic
infiltration, and Americans need to be aware that a great deal of time,
effort, and money has been, and is being, spent on the Islamafication
of America.

The most pernicious sign of this, is the slow, incremental
acceptance of Sharia Law in America.  Any efforts to legitimize Sharia
Law in the U.S. must be quashed without exception.  America follows the
U.S. Constitution—period.

Both Yale and Harvard have been churning out lawyers and other
professionals with a Global Collectivist bent, for some time.  Now both
of these institutions are accepting huge sums of money from Saudi
Arabia.

(It would appear that Yale and Harvard are in some sort of contest
to see who can be the most politically correct, unpatriotic,
anti-American indoctrination center.  I don’t know if UC Berkeley is
even in the running anymore.  Let’s see: Bush Sr.—Yale, Clinton—Yale,
Bush Jr.—Yale AND Harvard, Obama—Harvard.  Even giving Harvard extra
credit for Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg, I’d say that Yale is
slightly ahead).

Yale University Press recently made the courageous decision to
publish a book about purportedly anti-Islamic caricatures, or cartoons,
published by a Danish newspaper in 2005.  The cartoons caused a
world-wide uproar.

Unfortunately, Yale University Press neglected to include any of the
cartoons in their book (lest they offend any sensitive Muslims).  Which
makes about as much sense as publishing a pictorial history of slavery
in America, without any pictures (lest any Afro-Americans be
offended).

Talk about some dry reading.  As the saying goes, “one picture is worth a thousand words.”

Looking at the Yale Daily News, I believe that the woman who made
the first entry in the comments section, hit the nail on the head, “The
money trail is pretty clear. Yale is a partner to the King Abdullah
University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia.  I am sure they
do not want to lose their $50 million gift from the Saudis by offending
them with this book.”  Give the lady a cigar.

In an article titled “Harvard’s Segregated Gym,”
Annie Jacobsen discusses Harvard’s new rules that allow only Muslim
women access to the university’s gym during specified periods.
Jacobsen says that such segregation harkens back to the “Jim Crow” laws
of the Old South.

Jacobsen asks, “Could it possibly have anything to do with the $20
million gift Harvard recently accepted from Saudi Arabian Prince
Alwaleed bin Talal bin Addulaziz Alsaud?”  Hmmmm…what do you think?

And aside from college and university campuses across America, do
you think that it’s possible that individuals on Capitol Hill might be
accepting “donations” from Saudi Arabia, and other Islamic countries?
What about folks in the Obama Administration?

Just asking.

(Perhaps it’s time we told the “greenie weenies” to go take a hike,
and started some serious oil drilling in the U.S.—God knows we could
use the jobs.  Let’s make America energy independent, and stop
bank-rolling OPEC.  Whatta ya say?)

To get an idea of what the USA might look like in a few years, you should check out this video
by the EDL (English Defense League).  I can’t vouch for the EDL, as I
know nothing about them—they may be nothing more than a bunch of soccer
hooligans for all I know, but the headlines in the British papers shown
in the video, are ignored at our peril.

Sharia Law has already raised its barbaric head in America.  Perhaps you’ve heard about the Muslim fellow in Buffalo, New York, who beheaded his wife after she attempted to divorce him.

Or how about twenty-year-old Noor Almaleki in Phoenix, Arizona, whose Muslim father ran her over with a car and killed her, because he felt that she was engaged in conduct shameful to Islam.

The list goes on, and will continue to grow and expand
exponentially, unless Sharia Law is stopped in its tracks.  It does not
belong in America, and mustn’t be allowed to grow roots here.

What is NOW’s stance on such “honor killings?”  Who knows.  Their
silence on the subject lets you hear the crickets chirp.  Their blanket
shrug of indifference on the whole subject of Islamic misogyny, is
simply more proof of the Far Left’s collusion with radical Muslims.
NOW’s just being politically correct, and following the party line.
Mums the word.

Before closing this article, I want to mention a couple of
organizations that you should be wary of, and a few that will be
helpful to know.

You should keep an eye on CAIR (Council on American and Islamic Relations).  As Doug Hagmann noted in a Northeast Intelligence Network
article, CAIR’s “rabid pro-Islamist operatives have managed to gain
positions or exert influence inside a variety of law enforcement
agencies on all levels. Perhaps the most insidious infiltration of all,
however, is within the U.S. Department of Justice.”

That’s the same Department of Justice that is hell-bent on presenting Islamic terrorists with a world stage in New York City.

To know more about CAIR, you should buy and read the book “Muslim
Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize
America” by Dave Gaubatz and Paul Sperry.  At least read the short
forward by Sue Myrick (R-NC), it’s posted online.

Also actively working to expose CAIR, is Brigitte Gabriel, founder
of Act! For America, and one of the world’s foremost experts on
terrorism.  You might want to go to her web-site and sign her petition.

CAIR is not the only organization worth keeping an eye on.  There is
a veritable alphabet soup of Islamic NGOs (Non Governmental
Organizations) that have dubious connections.  Perhaps foremost among
them, is ISNA (Islamic Society of North America).  For an eye opening
look at ISNA, you should check out Dave Gaubatz’s article “

The ISNA Conference” on American Thinker.

In 2006, as 77-year-old Italian journalist/author Oriana Fallanci was dying of cancer, she gave an interview to The Wall Street Journal.
She was wanted in Italy on criminal charges at the time, for having
dared to speak out against, what she saw, as the decline of Western
culture, and the ongoing spread of Islam throughout Europe.

During the interview she asked rhetorically where the conservative
revolutionaries were.  Where were the conservative leaders with
intelligence, audacity, and valor?

Where indeed.

I would add, where are America’s Christian leaders?  At what point
do they stop playing “meek and mild,” and show some backbone for
Christ’s sake!  If they can’t respect themselves, they can at least
respect Jesus.

Laus Deo.
