Welcome to the United Nations of Idaho Lobbyists!
Well, here is something interesting that affects every citizen of Idaho.
Lobbying is defined as "The process of influencing public and government policy at all levels: federal, state, and local." A lobbyist is an individual who provides "local, state, and federal policymakers with points of view on public policy issues." A lobbyist can be a member of "associations and organized groups, including individuals in the private sector, corporations, fellow legislators or government officials, or advocacy groups (interest groups)."
Idaho has specific regulations when it comes to lobbying and lobbyists. They must register, file reports, and are held to other requirements, updated in 2015, page 37.
Idaho maintains a list of 425 registered lobbyists, their employer, name of the lobbyist, current status, which branch they lobby, and contact information. It is interesting to note how many are based outside of Idaho. This list includes members of corporations and non-profit (NPO) groups.
A non -governmental organization (NGO) differs from an NPO in that an NGO "...is a legally constituted organization that is created by legal persons and is not affiliated with any form of government. Non-profit organization (NPO) is an organization that uses its revenues and surpluses in order to fund other projects instead of giving them to share-holders as dividends." NGOs are a concept founded by the United Nations (UN) and are often international groups. Idaho actually has a non-profit center, many of which are associated with UN certified NGOs which really blurs the line of being a NPO vs an NGO.
According to the UN there are 4,045 certified NGOs and over 31,000 other NGOs that work with the UN. This UN brochure explains how NGOs can work in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) which includes advancing UN goals and objectives, implementing international objectives, adoption of Agenda 21, establishment with non-profit, public or voluntary organizations, and relevance to their work with of ECOSOC. ECOSOC promotes the concept of sustainable development. The UN holds NGO conferences to celebrate themselves and discuss how they can further UN objectives and strengthen or grow their network.
Getting back to Idaho, and understanding the background of an NGO and the role it plays along with non-profits, let's take a look at that Idaho lobbyist list. The list identifies the lobbyists "employer" as the organization they work for, but does not identify it as a corporation, NGO, or non-profit.
So, here is a list of some "employers" that are actually UN business partners and whose partnership requires a commitment to UN goals and objectives. These corporations can be searched via the search box.
Johnson & Johnson Direct TV Discovery Education Intel
Microsoft Cisco Eli Lily Monsanto
Pfizer Novartis Walmart Home Depot
Bayer Oracle General Motors Bank of America
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Chevron Hewlett Packard
United Water dba Suez Anheuser-Busch Co (Global Compact member)
The non-profit list is far more extensive and too exhaustive to list all of them. Some are chapters of the primary UN NGO, others partner with UN NGOs. This csonet.org site can be used to search UN certified NGOs, just type the organizational name in the search box if you want to look one up.
American Cancer Society American Heart Association
American Institute of Architects Planned Parenthood
AECOM Fluor Corporation
National Rifle Association Sierra Club
Nature Conservancy American Diabetes Association
United Health Care (UnitedHealth Group)
John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation
Idaho Wildlife Federation - chapter of National Wildlife Federation
Humane Society of the United States
Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce - chapter of US Chamber of Commerce
Idaho Psychological Association - representative to the American Psychological Association
National Association of Social Workers
All of these organizations lobby on the behalf of the UN. Not in the interest of Idaho, but in the interest of UN sustainable development ideology. Any time those words are used it is the UN talking. In Agenda 21, Chapter 27 is strictly devoted to the use of NGOs and NPOs to infest America with sustainable development concepts, including state and local levels of government.
One might want to consider contacting their representative and ask which UN lobbyist they are talking to and UN ideology they are supporting.
Welcome to the United Nations of Idaho Dining!
Yum! What is better than having a pizza delivered by Pizza Hut for those fall football games. Or when you are planning a picnic or Mom is getting off late from work, how great it is to stop and get a bucket of that Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) with all the trimmings to feed the family, everyone loves that. When out and about running errands, and for a different change of pace, how do those Taco Bell burritos sound? In fact, you can go to Taco Bell in the morning for breakfast before you hit the road!
KFC is an exemplary example of the American dream. Starting out in Corbin, Kentucky during the depression, Harland David Sanders, opened a roadside restaurant and sold fried chicken. He later figured out that having a franchise would expand his business and in 1952 opened one in Utah. So successful was his brainchild he was able sell his business in 1964 for $2 million dollars. He did all of this in spite of dropping out of school in the 7th grade, guess he didn't have Common Core. There is no finer example of what America is about and Colonel Sanders has remained an American icon. KFC was bought out by Pepsi-Co in 1986.
Taco Bell started out similarly. In 1946, a 23 year old Glenn Bell, WWII Marine veteran, noticed long lines of customers at a near-by Mexican restaurant and decided to start selling similar food at his hot dog stand. By 1962 he opened his first Taco Bell, starting a franchise in 1964, and the rest is history. He sold out to PepsiCo in 1978.
Pizza Hut was started by two brothers, Frank and Dan Carney, Dan being an Air Force veteran, in 1958. Without any formal education on franchising Dan studied KFC and McDonalds methods. In fact, already having a business degree, he went on to get his Master's degree, wanting to write his thesis on the subject, but that idea was rejected by his obviously more knowledgeable professor. Later, without that degree, he was told he should teach a class on the subject. It is obvious Dan was more knowledgeable, guess he didn't have Common Core either. Pizza Hut was sold to PepsiCo in 1977.
These fast food chains have been part of the American lifestyle since the early 60's. All were started by men who reached for and achieved the American dream, not always with an education, but with freedom, hard work and a keen desire to learn, they became successful.
So the next time you enjoy that pizza, fried chicken, or taco remember the American men who had the freedom to start the path to your enjoyment. Then, pause and think about how the face of America is being changed by the United Nation (UN) despots whose goal is to shape the world into a global society under the guise of sustainable development and create a network of global corporate control.
Pepsi-Co is a UN business partner, UN non-governmental organization (NGO), and became a UN Global Compact participant in 2008. As a UN business partner it is important to remember there is an expected commitment to advance UN goals and objectives. In 1997, Pepsi-Co sold KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut to Tricon Global Restaurants, Inc, later known as Yum! Yum! currently manages those franchises but also had previous involvement with A&W and Long John Silvers.
Yum! is a UN business partner and has committed, as required by the UN, to promote UN goals and objectives in partnership with other UN organizations. In 2007 Yum! joined forces with another UN organization, UN World Food Programme (WFP), to raise global hunger awareness and money for the WFP, 15 million to be exact. If you would like to see other UN driven ideologies Yum! has participated in use this link to scroll through the years.
Not forgetting their obligation to the UN for sustainable development(SD) and corporate social responsibility, Yum! has imbedded both UN ideologies into their businesses. Chapter 2 in Agenda 21, page 4, covers how SD is promoted.
Yum! has several SD policies. Naturally, meeting the requirement to support other UN partners, Yum! is a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and have built a number of LEED certified buildings.
As part of the UN sustainable forest agenda Yum! matches the UN policy for forest management and uses products only from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forestry Certification (PEFC) approved Sustainable Forest Initiative(SFI), both UN certified NGOs.
On target for the UN 2020 SD goal #12, Yum! actively participates in reducing the waste their franchises generate. Calling it "Environment in Action" you can see what other environmental activities Yum! is taking across the world, including Idaho, all for the UN.
Is it nice to know that three iconic American fast food chains, built by American men, are used as pawns to push UN ideology? But remember, what the UN dictates, the UN can change, and the UN can take away. Yum! is just one business example on how the UN promotes their agenda. Without going into more details, a topic that will be covered in future articles, the general scheme here is the UN using corporate and foundation partnerships to indoctrinate you on their agenda, all the while promoting themselves within the ranks. The UN goal is to eventually have a world corporate governance, not built by American men who can freely decide how they want to run their business and succeed, and not managed by the state in which you live.
What would Harland, Glenn, and Dan think? In honor of those men, maybe consideration should be given to boycott any business that engages with an organization of despots.
Welcome to the United Nations of Idaho Education!
Sustainability. What is sustainability? According to Dictionary.com it is a noun with two definitions:
1. The ability to be sustained, supported, upheld, or confirmed.
2. Environmental Science. the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance:
Sustainability concepts have been integrated into Idaho university and college programs, and campus living. Below are just a few, University of Idaho (UI), Boise State University (BSU), Idaho State University (ISU), and College of Southern Idaho (CSI).
Starting with UI, they offer an online course on the Principles of Sustainability through a sustainable Idaho grant. Subjects of sustainability include the history, standards, waste, environment, industrial, energy, water, and even measuring sustainability. In their 2011-2015 Strategic Plan Goal 4, Objective C, is to "Be a community committed to productivity, sustainability, and innovation." And last of all, to encourage participation by all students they have a Sustainability Center where students are encouraged to reorganize "our life support systems; climate, energy, biodiversity, food, consumerism and consumption, waste, transportation and built environment" and "that reduce our environmental footprint and increase participation and collaboration...in addressing sustainability-related issues." In 2013 grants were used to encourage "students to limit vehicle transportation and invest in biking, walking and other sustainable forms of transportation." Hmm, reminiscent of United Nations of Idaho cities.
BSU also has a campus sustainability program with a nice short video that summarizes it. At the bottom of the page you can find the different programs that imbed sustainability concepts. If you read the United Nations of Idaho Cities take note of their community and regional planning program.
In this draft document ISU defines sustainability as "...development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." They also have two specific
programs devoted to sustainability, sustainable agriculture and sustainable energy.
In their strategic plan 2012-2016 CSI promotes environmental sustainability on page 10 and even a strategic initiative for global citizenship on page 9. And there is that vision word again on page 3.
Now you are probably sitting there thinking, what is wrong with this? What is wrong with teaching students to take care of their world and how to live more sustainably? For young adults with such impressionable minds it does make a difference. A major difference.
The United Nations (UN) has invested much effort, time, and malfeasance getting their global education agenda, otherwise known as indoctrination, into our education system using their buddy foundations and business partners to force it on to us. Idaho is no exception to this malfeasance.
In 2012 the UN created the Higher Education Sustainability Initiative which outlines their commitment to have higher education teach sustainability concepts and create green campuses. Under "Where the commitment will be implemented", the United States of America is listed. Let's see, going back to just BSU and ISU those concepts are being taught, and BSU announced its intention to go "green". The PDF file at the bottom of that link is the document used for that commitment.
Now it just so happens, the United States Department of Education (USDE) partnered with the UN and agreed to include sustainable development in education. At one time there was a website that showed this partnership and agreement but the USDE has since removed it. Instead, they changed the website to the US Partnership for Education for Sustainable Development. Under "Collaborators" the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and Regional Office for North America (RONA) are listed along with several other UN certified non-governmental organizations (NGO).
But, in this draft speech to be delivered on November 10, 2014, the cat slipped out of the bag. In that speech for the United Nations Educational and Scientific Organization (UNESCO), Maureen McLaughlin, Senior Advisor to the Secretary and Director of International Affairs, USDE, she states, "...I am pleased to represent the United States and highlight our achievements and future strategies to advance education for sustainable development(ESD)." On page 5 she outlines federal government agencies that promote ESD. The now defunct website link showing the UNESCO partnership with the US is on page 6. She proudly announces on page 3, "The U.S. government supports the NGO commitments made under UNESCO’s Global Action Program (GAP)...". The USDE further explains the importance of UNESCO here and have set up an agency, United States Mission to UNESCO, where you can read more.
The UN has several other initiatives to push a global education. Global Education First (GEF) partners with the Global Business Coalition for Education (GBCE), of which Hewlett Packard (HP) is a member. One GEF priority is global citizenship, which HP promotes also. Education for All (EFI) has six goals.
There are some educational "themes" the UN promotes including some that are eerily similar to Common Core such as life long learning, skills for life, and already covered ESD. UNESCO has a "Roadmap for Implementing the Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development". Page 5 outlines the integration of sustainable development through education systems. If you want a more in depth picture this UN document, from The Future We Want, will fill you in.
According to the UN, "Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Interesting how that matches the draft ISU document. Chapter 14 in Agenda 21, starting on page 125, 14.1-14.24 covers their notion of sustainable agriculture, and Chapter 2, page 4 outlines the invasive methods the UN recommends on promoting sustainable development.
As an extra measure to indoctrinate, one of the largest textbook publishers, Pearson, is a UN business partner having books on sustainability just for higher education. Pearson is also a member of the UN Global Compact. As a UN business partner they are expected to commit to promoting UN ideology.
Bottom line, the UN has a global agenda to reform education, what is taught, and the federal government is implementing it in Idaho schools. Sustainability, also known as sustainable development, is just one grain of sand in the beach of UN ideology being taught to our young. Page 320 in Agenda 21, Chapter 36.2(a) outlines the reorientation of education towards sustainable development. Common Core is the K-12 version of what is happening in higher education, UN ideology on steroids.
Remember the terms sustainable or sustainable development. They represent the UN and are the umbrella language of their agenda.

Welcome to the United Nations of Idaho Education.
Welcome to the United Nations of Idaho Cities!
Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) were created in 1962 for cities with greater than 50,000 population to assist with transportation development and city planning. Idaho has several MPOs, all managed by unelected individuals and who are in charge of designing local transportation and city development. MPOs receive funds from from several sources including the federal Department of Transportation (DOT). MPOs have morphed into quite powerful organizations over the years and they all have the same goals for city planning.
Using the Treasure Valley MPO, Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) as an example, you can see the many members and agencies who participate and are involved in "planning services". Being city planners many COMPASS employees are members of the American Planning Association (APA) and COMPASS partners with the Idaho APA. Note they also partner with the Urban Land Institute (ULI), and Idaho Smart Growth.
Look over the Communities in Motion 2040 plan adopted and implemented by COMPASS. Note that it includes walking, dense housing, mass transportation, open space, parks, housing, jobs, etc. COMPASS has a complete list of objectives they are actively working on to complete. Notice also they partner with Idaho Green Building Council (a chapter of the United States Green Building Council, UN Non-governmental organization (NGO), and Army Corp of Engineers which also partners with the United Nations (UN).
One would think that DOT only involves transportation issues however as seen here it is heavily involved in how cities are planned because they partner with Housing & Urban Development (HUD) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These agencies literally dictate how our cities are designed and built even calling themselves a "Partnership for Sustainable Communities" helping MPOs achieve this goal. On page 2 of this COMPASS document an application was being processed to obtain funding for a sustainable community planning grant. To get any money their requirements are mandated. The Gardner Company, previously noted for using LEED, that is UN, designed buildings has their hands right in the mix.
There are several principle elements of sustainable communities, here are five:
So what does any of this have to do with the UN or even how it affects Idahoans or the cities they live in?
It should first be noted that the APA is a certified UN NGO and partners with UN Habitat. As previously noted city planners belong to this professional organization. Professional organizations provide training and guidance on best practices to their members. It is the role of the APA, as a UN NGO, to teach their members UN ideology, read the mission statement.
The EPA also partners with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). In their Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) the EPA and UNEP agreed to "share common goals and objectives" and "further develop and intensify their cooperation and their effectiveness to achieve their common goals and objectives", and that includes how cities are designed.
The ULI actually wrote a handbook guide for UN Habitat that "provides leaders and decision-makers with a framework for decision-making around best practices in urban planning."
Smart Growth partners with several UN NGOs and their mission is embedding sustainable community principles into your city.
It is very difficult to find documentation of actual partnerships between HUD, DOT and the UN. However, on the bottom of page 4 in this 2011 newsletter by RONA (UNEP Regional Office of North America) representatives from HUD, EPA, and DOT attended the UN Rio+20 conference along with other UN cronies.
Oh heck, all this time reading to learn how our cities are being designed, it really is better summed up in one page, video included, by The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, otherwise known as UN Habitat.
Understanding our Idaho MPOs and how their UN affiliated "partnering organizations" are involved in city planning, it is now clear where the source of this agenda actually originates from, the UN. The next time you hear the terms mixed land use, walking and biking, mass transportation or any other UN term being used to describe the marvels your MPO is creating for your city just remember it is an agenda to restrict your freedom, control your resources, and force you into an small apartment. The UN even has a process called "visioning" to help you see the light, COMPASS describes it on page 9, NGOs describe how to do it, and on page 24 this UNEP book talks about its importance in getting you to buy it.
But go easy on your local MPO and city planners, a survey revels they are largely unaware of UN involvement in their planning. You can look at your local MPO activities and see if they are doing the same as COMPASS. For Pocatello, here is their 2010 "Open Space Plan" that includes a boundary restricting future growth, walking paths and biking, visioning workshops, using conservation easements which will be a subject in future posts, cluster development which is a UN brainchild, and partnerships with UN NGOs.
In Agenda 21, Chapter 7 on Human Settlements describes how cities should look. 7.4 outlines the need for "partnerships", 7.5c promoting sustainable land use planning and management, 7.5e promoting transport systems, 7.16 identifies UN Habitat as the framework, 7.16c outlines integrates city planning, 7.18 warns about preventing urban sprawl, 7.34d use of professional organizations for training, 7.45E promote transport systems, 7.52c get rid of cars, 7.54b use non-motorized transport (walk/bike), 7.69c energy efficient designs (LEED). Do note that we aren't talking about cities but rather "human settlements".
Just as aircraft were used as weapons on 9/11, MPOs across the United States are being used as the weapon for the UN to dictate how our cities are designed. Welcome to the United Nations of Idaho cities.
The United Nations is Active in Idaho
If Idahoans don’t believe the United Nations (UN) has any influence on their lives in Idaho they need to take another look at how the UN is operating here.
The first example, United Water, a water utility that contracts with Boise, announced they have become "Suez Environnement", Suez being a UN business partner. As seen on the same United Water link above they partner with certified UN NGOs American Water Works Association and Water Environment Federation. Suez Environnement is tasked with the responsibility of promoting UN goals of sustainability. Here is a letter written in 2010 to the United Nations Office at Geneva and Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights supporting those objectives by Bertrand Camus, CEO of United Water. United Water continues to expand its control of water in the United States as well as expanding into other utilities such waste management, furthering another Agenda 21 goal of controlling resources. These functions have traditionally been managed by local cities but now, through public private partnerships, the UN is taking control of how we manage our local city services.
So where else is the UN operating in Idaho?
The Gardner company, the primary construction company behind the massive, stack and pack, changes in downtown Boise and other Idaho cities, is implementing the transformation of cities per UN standards. On Gardner's website they proudly promote their dedication to constructing LEED certified buildings (second bullet above clients). Here is a description of the LEED program. Boise mayor, Dave Beiter, and his council consistently approve this company's involvement in transforming Boise into a human settlement.
LEED, Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is actually a program of the US Green Building Council (USGBC), which is a certified UN NGO. Under the mission statement, as a UN NGO, the USGBC goal is "To transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built, and operated, enabling a sustainable, socially-responsible, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life for all." AKA, UN designed. The U.S. Green Building Council even has a Idaho chapter located in Boise.
The Gardner company, being dutiful to the UN, is also responsible for promoting human settlement concepts in their planning such as high density housing, mass transportation, biking & walking to services, and mixed use, all human settlement concepts. Chapter 7 of Agenda 21 outlines the objective.
In another example, Hewlett Packard (HP) is a large global corporation with a complex based in Boise. In this 2011 report HP outlined its philosophy for employees and their work environment including global citizenship, diversity and inclusion, and a global human rights policy, really the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The UN explains how they work with "corporate" sectors to enforce their notion of human rights. Thanks HP for forcing UN ideology onto your Idaho employees.
The United Nations Global Compact is a UN conglomerate of large corporations around the world who promote UN goals and objectives. Our own local HP is a member of the Global compact and UN business partner, joining the compact in 2002. In this 2009 brochure, page 4, HP boldly declares one of its seven objectives is Global Citizenship. Here is a link to 49 pages on how they are progressing with this objective and here is the most recent 2013 report. A more in-depth report on how laden HP is with UN objectives can be found here.
One more water example. Throughout Idaho climate stations have been placed to monitor our use of water, our climate, and production. In 2014 the Caribou Soil District, University of Idaho, Bureau of Reclamation, and National Resources Conservation Service "in partnership" with Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), a UN certified NGO, created a project called Irrigation Efficiency in Idaho. "As a signatory to the UN Global Compact CEO Water Mandate and a member of its steering committee, AB InBev has integrated the Mandate's six core elements in our approach to water management: direct operations, supply chain and watershed management, collective action, public policy, community engagement and transparency." and "funded the installation of six new AgriMet climate stations, coordinated three case studies to demonstrate the effectiveness of the technology, and incorporated 25 growers into the pilot within our Idaho farming community." This map shows where those stations are in Idaho. What better way for the UN to monitor Idaho climate, water, and production as NGOs report their information to the UN. AB InBev also promotes global citizenship.
And last of all we have the UN placing refugees in our state.
These examples demonstrate corporate fascism, the UN colluding with the government at all levels through the creation of "public private partnerships" so well described throughout Agenda 21. There is no protection from those you elect, both political parties participate in this agenda to advance UN goals.
It is time for Idahoans to wake up. For anyone who thinks this is just conspiracy theories or only tin foil hatter talk, all of this information is available directly from the UN where full descriptions of their activities are given. Idahoans should stand up to the Idaho legislature, demand legislation banning all UN activity in Idaho, and stand up to the federal government refusing all UN integrated legislation into our state, the most recent being SB 1067, now known as HB 1. There is little time left as Technocracy, the UN, and corporations continue to advance their agenda. Do Idahoans want to be subject to these despots as they decide what we possess, how we can act, what we think, what we eat, where and how we live, what we teach our children, and what resources we are allowed? These are only a few examples of how we are being forced to exist under UN doctrine as the United Nations of Idaho.
This website is non-partisan and is solely dedicated to removing the harmful controls placed on our state and nation through Agenda 21 and its associated programs. We invite all Idahoans to join us in this fight for freedom!
