BHO is a proponent of Sustainable Development (SD). He believes in the "fundamental transformation" of America. Since every metropolitan planning organization in America has now been indoctrinated to create high density, mass transportation, and urban sprawl boundary cities, BHO is sending money their way, of course with the SD strings attached. Smart Growth advocates are thrilled. Why is the President of the United States involving himself in how your city is designed? Shouldn't that be up to the local citizens?
The federal department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has put forth a proposal to dismantle local city zoning & planning in order to force "fair" housing. This means all local control will be lost to the feds and they will have the ability to force housing units for the sake of "fairness and diversity". Agenda 21 promotes the sustainable community, diversity, and equality for all. It appears the BHO administration is putting in the final stages to make this happen, his fundamental transformation.
Global Poverty Act
BHO promised to "fundamentally transform America". Although it is unclear as to what he meant by that, what he didn't tell you is the transformation was already underway and he wanted to hasten the transformation. On December 7, 2007 he introduced and sponsored the Global Poverty Act. This act would have:
UN Values in Education
Common Core is a set of "standards" adopted by the Governor Otter and Superintendent Tom Luna for the state of Idaho without a citizen vote. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a UN NGO, spent millions to help fund Common Core. Bill Gates also signed a cooperation agreement with the UN. The UN-Director of the United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) explained that education and training are highlighted as especially important areas for helping UNESCO with its global education reform mandates that involve worldwide curricula reflecting UNESCO values.
UN values? Values that the UN would like you to adopt and will be taught through Common Core including events you see happening across the United States. This includes gender equality, health education (including sex education), human rights (not American), cultural "diversity" (not American culture) and of course global citizenry. The United States Department of Education has created a United States Mission to UNESCO just for the purpose of promoting UN ideals into your child's education. If you look at your child's textbook you will find a Sustainable Development (SD) theme in each subject as the US has integrated the UN/Agenda 21 goal of teaching Sustainable Development into our education system.
Chapter 36 in Agenda 21 identifies how education should be implemented.
36.2. (a) Reorienting education towards sustainable development;
36.3. Education is critical for promoting sustainable development...the latter needs to be incorporated as an essential part of learning. Both formal and non-formal education are indispensable to changing people's attitudes so that they have the capacity to assess and address their sustainable development concerns. ...achieving environmental and ethical awareness, values and attitudes, skills and behaviour consistent with sustainable development... .
36.10(e) ...promote a cooperative relationship with the media, popular theatre groups, and entertainment and advertising industries...to mobilize their experience in shaping public behaviour... .
36.14. Countries with the support of the United Nations system should identify workforce training needs and assess measures to be taken to meet those needs. (A clear goal of Common Core and which Tom Luna stresses the need for education to prepare children for the future workforce)
Common Core is from Agenda 21 and the UN. It is not just standards, it is the nationalization of our education system with the goal of indoctrinating children. Join groups who are actively working against Common Core. Idahoans for Local Education is a good resource for information on Common Core. Contact your state representative, Governor Otter, and Tom Luna to oppose Common Core in Idaho.
The EPA is the most powerful regulatory agency being used against us. The EPA has regulatory power over many areas and is unchecked by Congress.
As early as 1990, the EPA incorporated the United Nations (UN) into federal legislation in the Global Research Act:
•Section 203(2)(2) “Coordination of global change research plans with those developed by International organizations such as…the United Nations Environment Program”
In 2011 the EPA signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations to:
•Strengthen environmental capacity & national governance
•Create healthy communities
•Transition to a green economy
•Respond to global challenges EPA regulations cover
Water is a precious resource of which the UN wants control. The overall objective of Agenda 21 is to satisfy the freshwater needs of all countries for their sustainable development.
The reader is encouraged to read Chapter 18. It contains the future plans for the use of your water and how it should be regulated. Here are some examples:
18.39. (d) To participate, as far as appropriate, in international water-quality monitoring and management programmes such as the Global Water Quality Monitoring Programme (GEMS/WATER)...
18.50(iii) Linkages between national water plans and community management of local waters;
18.54. The implementation of water-supply and sanitation programmes is a national responsibility. This also means that national authorities, together with the agencies and bodies of the United Nations system and other external support agencies providing support to national programmes, should develop mechanisms and procedures to collaborate at all levels.
Transboundary Water Governance is the plan to share water across all boundaries.
Hillary Clinton agreed we need to share water.
The US Army Corp of Engineers is participating with the UN on water governance.
In 2009 the US Senate introduced a bill to put water under federal jurisdiction but it failed.
The UN even assesses our water through their GIWA program.
EPA exceeding their authority is being challenged.
Idaho water resources need to be protected from national and international control. Contact your representative and let them know you want Idaho water protected from federal and international control.
The United Nations will now govern national sovereignty through Responsibility to Protect (R2P).
"Societies, said Ban, must “embrace diversity” or face the intervention of regional and international bodies that will step in to “protect and empower” the people living under the offending regime." "...the UN will prevent the governments of member states from passing laws, programs, and policies that prohibit the establishment of a UN-approved body of law." As a member state this applies to the United States.
BHO agreed. President Obama has established a federal agency to ensure that R2P is executed effectively. The agency is the White House Atrocities Prevention Board.
Open Space - The Truth
Dave Bieter is a big fan of "open space" and wants the city to spend another $10 million to buy up more privately owned land connect it to previously purchased "open space", thus "protecting" this land from future development.
But the truth is that this open space is really a further expansion of an "urban sprawl boundary", or "urban growth boundary". It is intended to prevent the further growth of Boise outside of the current boundary. Urban sprawl boundaries are addressed in Chapter 7 of Agenda 21, 7.18.
The UN recognizes efforts by Smart Growth to promote urban growth boundaries and stop what they define as urban sprawl. These boundaries are necessary to create human settlements and contain them. With these boundaries, high density housing will remove all need for a car, and the only available transportation out of this boundary is mass transportation provided by the government, freedoms are severely restricted if not eliminated.
One other downfall is the loss of revenue from land that cannot be developed or used for other purposes. Land in government hands does not generate revenues. Boundaries create an economic loss to the city, county, and state. They drive up the cost of land within the boundary itself. Here are examples of Smart Growth and urban growth boundaries across the United States. An Independent Policy Report explains how Smart Growth creates unaffordable housing. Idaho has a Smart Growth Chapter, here is a survey you can take that mentions open space.
Contact Mayor Bieter and the Boise City Council. Let them know you are opposed to any further creation of open spaces. Educate both on Agenda 21. Let the free market decide how these lands should be developed and used, not a government that continues to take private land out of the hands of Americans.
A Conservation Easement (CE) is land that has been set aside for "protection" of the wildlife, habitat, or beauty that exists on the land. Sounds great but there it is a deeper hidden agenda to take private land. United Nation (UN) non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are used to "buy" large parcels of land from private owners, the goal is to eventually connect them, fulfill the Wildlands Network & Y2Y objectives, ban use, and force humans into high density population areas. When the landowner sells the land to the NGO it devalues the land as it can no longer be developed, lowers tax revenues, and restricts human access and use. The new "partner" or NGO then gives land trusts or government entities authority to manage and control these rights and pay the landowner a reduced amount for his property without “taking” it.
The NGO takes part of or an entire bundle of property rights from the landowner in perpetuity. This includes the right to possess, use, modify, develop, lease, or sell the owner’s land. The landowner gives up control of their land but are still obligated to pay taxes.
To be fair this is a "voluntary" agreement. However, “Voluntary” can involve the landowner being notified by the NGO that they are located inside a particular area desired for “protection” and their land will be regulated or maybe taken by eminent domain. The only option given to the landowner is to take the “offer” of a CE. Landowners needing quick cash and a tax reduction find these plans attractive for a short term fix. NGOs target individuals for this purpose. CE substantially lowers land value by reducing or restricting its use and indirectly the state loses revenues.
CE enforced by the holder or third party can be transferred at anytime to another land trust or government agency. In a Montana lawsuit the NGO demanded improvements on the CE at the owners expense. The landowner sued and the Court ruled the landowner was responsible for the improvements and the cost incurred for the improvements, the landowner lost. In Wyoming an attempt was made to reverse CE land and the new landowner lost. The Nature Conservancy, a UN NGO, has been involved in several scandals regarding CE.
Looking at SE Idaho on the way to Island Park, near Yellowstone, there has been a concerted effort to place land into CEs. The Nature Conservancy works with the Teton Regional Land Trust. This map shows the amount of land they manage, land out of private ownership, some of which is owned by the Nature Conservancy, a UN NGO. A UN entity owns Idaho land.
Here is a map that shows Idaho land that is being looked at for CE or "protection". Use the drop-down for conservation priorities, then Map Key & credits. Here is an article by Tom DeWeese that gives a more in-depth look at CE. What is being presented as a "protection" of land is really a way in which Agenda 21 is taking private land through the use of NGOs and CE.
Sustainable Communities by BHO
This President loves the UN and fully supports the UN and Agenda 21 goals. Through various executive orders BHO has put Agenda 21 goals on steroids. Here is one example.
Keeping in mind Sustainable Development is synonymous with Agenda 21, BHO declared a new Partnership for Sustainable Communities by creating a partnership between EPA-HUD-DOT. You now have the necessary federal agencies working together for the creation of human settlements. Smart Growth of America, an NGO affiliated with UN/Agenda 21 goals, supports this. Each of these government agencies also have Sustainable Development incorporated into their regulations. Your tax dollar is now being spent towards the development of human settlements across the United States, thanks to BHO.
Corporatism - Public-Private Partnerships - Fascism
Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), sounds great doesn't it? Government working hand in hand with the private sector. But the other name for it is corporatism, corporatocracy, crony capitalism, or fascism. Everyone probably remembers the disaster with Solyndra, our tax dollars given to a company for the promotion of green energy and solar panels. When the company went under what happened to all of those tax dollars? They just vanished and the taxpayers picked up the tab.
There is another form of corporatism going on with the United Nations (UN) and it furthers Agenda 21 goals to redistribute American wealth and indoctrinate people on Sustainable Development and globalism.
Here is just a partial list of businesses that "partner" with the UN:
LEVIS COKE STARBUCKS DIRECT TV COORS KRAFT
NESTLE NBA BAYER WALMART CITIGROUP CLOROX
MERCK GE COLGATE HP PEPSI HOME DEPOT CHICAGO BULLS BANK OF AMERICA GENERAL MOTORS McDONALDS
UN Business Partners - To search for a business type the name in the search box.
In partnering with the United Nations these businesses redistribute money to the rest of the world, not back into America, but to other countries. Just a few examples of how this money is used to help other countries: plant trees, teach hand washing, promote AIDS assistance, build refugee sanitation, increase access to water, and even expand or help other countries start businesses. Is it no wonder America has lost it's industrial and manufacturing base and is unable to generate employment? Should this money be put back into America?
Meanwhile, back at home, these businesses promote Sustainable Development (SD). They advertise how they are going green and promoting you to do the same. You are encouraged to buy their products that are "safe" or "protect" the environment. As we accept the idea that these are good companies for protecting the earth and support them, they are gaining a monopoly over smaller businesses who are eventually unable to compete and forced out of business. Does that sound familiar?
As crazy as it sounds the goal is for corporations to take control. The UN even has a World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) of which over 200 major corporations have joined. These businesses will eventually have a monopoly on all products.
WBCSD - What was originally a "Vision 2050" plan for your future has now been advanced to a Action 2020 plan to advance their climate change agenda. What this really means is an aggressive campaign to get full control of resources, needed in order to finalize global corporatism. Here is a video overview of Action2020.
Agenda 21 goals of redistribution of wealth, indoctrination, and social equity, all under the guise of environmentalism, are being accomplished. Knowing these businesses partner with the UN and advance Agenda 21 goals what will you do?
Chapter 30.1 of Agenda 21 outlines "Business and industry, including transnational corporations, and their representative organizations should be full participants in the implementation and evaluation of activities related to Agenda 21."
9/13 article on these same UN business partners lobbying Congress for more foreign workers at the expense of American jobs.
UN Logos on US Soil
Did you know that the UN has "World Heritage Sites" and have put their logo on cherished American soil? This includes such places as Independence Hall, the Statue of Liberty, Yellowstone National Park, and the Grand Canyon. Here is their logo on the Tennessee Smoky Mountain National Park. This link also provides more information on World Heritage Sites.
UN World Heritage List
You can scroll down to the United States for the list of Heritage Sites. If you click on Independence Hall the description inaccurately states ...universal principles of freedom and democracy". America is a Republic, not a democracy. The Founders created universal principles?
These are American treasures, they do not belong to the world. Just another example of how the UN has embedded themselves into America in ongoing efforts to diminish our sovereignty and globalize the world.
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!
