Agenda 21 for Dummies

Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center has put together an excellent one pager to educate people about Agenda 21 policies, the intent and how it is meant to affect every person on the planet!  Thanks, Tom, this is a great tool!  ~LTG

Agenda 21 In One Easy Lesson

Awareness of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development is racing across the nation as citizens in community after community are learning what their city planners are actually up to. As awareness grows, I am receiving more and more calls for tools to help activists fight back. Many complain that elected officials just won’t read detailed reports or watch long videos. “Can you give us something that is quick, and easy to read that we can hand out,” I’m asked.

So here it is. A one page, quick description of Agenda 21 that fits on one page. I’ve also included for the back side of your hand out a list of quotes for the perpetrators of Agenda 21 that should back up my brief descriptions.

A word of caution, use this as a starter kit, but do not allow it to be your only knowledge of this very complex subject. To kill it you have to know the facts. Research, know your details; discover the NGO players in your community; identify who is victimized by the policies and recruit them to your fight; and then kill Agenda 21. That’s how it must be done. The information below is only your first step. Happy hunting.   Continue reading

An Administration Guilty of Gun Trafficking Leading to Murder


House Panel Releases Scathing Report  on ‘Fast and Furious’ Gun Operation, Sure to Anger Mexico


Published June 15, 2011

Hoping to score a knockout blow against the Mexican cartels, U.S. law  enforcement created “Operation Fast and Furious” to stop gun smuggling by  allowing the weapons into Mexico, thereby exposing the entire cartel network to  prosecution, according to a new congressional report on the U.S. program.

Instead, the operation was a bust, a deadly strategy that left a trail of  blood and bodies throughout the Southwest, the scathing congressional report  said, concluding that a reckless and irresponsible chain of command ignored  repeated warnings the plan would fail.

“You’ve got people who are dead, you have weapons that are missing and you  have an administration that doesn’t seem to want to take any accountability for  it,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah and a member of the House Government  Oversight Committee. “There is absolutely no justification, no justification for  this. There are people that are going to have to be held accountable.”

That effort begins Wednesday morning when the committee opens hearings on  Operation Fast and Furious. Those testifying include the family of murdered  Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and three ATF special agents who say the plan  was doomed from the very beginning.

Findings from the preliminary report include:

— Agents expected to interdict weapons, yet were told to stand down and “just surveil.” Agents therefore did not act. They watched straw purchasers buy  hundreds of weapons illegally and transfer those weapons to unknown third  parties and stash houses.

— ATF agents complained about the strategy of allowing guns to walk in  Operation Fast and Furious. Leadership ignored their concerns. Instead,  supervisors told the agents to “get with the program” because senior ATF  officials had sanctioned the operation.

— Agents knew that given the large numbers of weapons being trafficked to  Mexico, tragic results were a near certainty.

— Operation Fast and Furious contributed to the increasing violence and  deaths in Mexico. This result was regarded with giddy optimism by ATF  supervisors hoping that guns recovered at crime scenes in Mexico would provide  the nexus to straw purchasers in Phoenix.

That last finding is sure to anger Mexico, which has so far been muted in its  criticism. In a March 2010 memo, ATF says it allowed gun smugglers to buy 359  guns while 958 people died in Mexico the same month. Internally, the agency was  “trumpeting up the violence that was occurring as a result of an ATF sanctioned  program.”

Agents say the man in charge of the operation in Phoenix, “was jovial, if not  giddy” when Fast and Furious guns were found in Mexico. One agent described in  detail his disgust at the self-satisfaction of ATF leadership for sending guns  into what they knew to be a war zone, saying, “I cannot see anyone who has one  iota of concern for human life being OK with this.”

In a question-and-answer session with congressional investigators, he was  asked, “So is it a fair, predictable outcome of the policy that there would be  essentially collateral damage in terms of human lives?”

“Sure,” the agent replied, “That’s correct.”

The report also clarifies that the ATF did not “lose track” of guns. Rather  it intentionally allowed guns to “fall into the hands of criminals and bandits  on both sides of the border.”

Both line agents and gun dealers repeatedly warned supervisors the guns would  end up killing people, the report says, “but ATF supervisors told agents to  follow orders because this was sanctioned from above. They told gun dealers not  to worry because they would make sure the guns didn’t fall into the wrong  hands.”

“Some people say Fast and Furious is a good idea that was just managed  poorly,” the House committee’s chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said.  “Whether you think is good idea and badly run or just a bad idea, it’s very  clear this administration is not overseeing this in a way that protects the  American people.”

The program came to a crashing halt in January with the death of U.S. Border  Patrol Agent Brian Terry, shot by an AK-47 purchased a year earlier by Jamie  Avila, a known gun smuggler who had been under ATF surveillance since November  of 2009.

The report says, “The death of Border Agent Brian Terry was likely a  preventable tragedy.”

Equally discouraging, the report concludes the operation itself was a  failure, saying after 18 months of investigative work, Fast and Furious resulted  only in indictments of 20 straw purchasers, buyers who were known before the  operation even began.

“Phoenix ATF Special Agent in Charge (SAC) William Newell’s statement that  the indictments represent the take-down of a firearms trafficking ring from top  to bottom, and his statement that ATF never allowed guns to walk are incredible,  false, and a source of much frustration to the agents,” it says.

I wonder how many of these guns wound up in the hands of jihadists right here, and stored in any of the over 2000 mosques in this country

Islamic Group Approved to Buy Former Elementary School in Michigan

More creeping Sharia in America….

The city of Dearborn, Michigan, already has the largest population of Muslims in America. Now, Muslims will take over a former elementary school in the city of Farmington, a northern suburb of Detroit, MI.

Yesterday, June 15, 2011, the Farmington School Board unanimously approved the sale of the school to a Muslim group, the Islamic Cultural Association (ICA).

The ICA, based in Franklin, Michigan, was founded in the 1980s. Its mission statement states that its foremost goal is to “Disseminate Islam and its principles, values, and teachings.”

As reported by ClickOnDetroit.com on June 15, 2011, the school board approved the sale of the former Eagle Elementary School, which was slated for demolition, despite anti-Muslim protests by about 200 people who tried to block the sale. The protesters expressed “concerns that property values would decrease if Muslims congregated in the area.”

The ICA will transform the former elementary school into an Islamic cultural and activity center.

Dear God, what is happening to America?

No Goldfish For You!

SF Animal Control Commission seeks ban on goldfish

Did you see where you state ranked on the Freedom Scale? No surprise that California ranks #48 with their ever-overreaching regulations.  Now comes another one from San Francisco:

The City’s Animal Control and Welfare Commission is pushing for a pet sale ban in the city – only this time, it even covers goldfish. The idea is to put the squeeze on puppy and kitten mills that supply pet stores, and to discourage “impulse buys” of hamsters and other small pets that often wind up being dumped at shelters.

“Most fish in aquariums are either mass bred, under inhumane conditions or taken from the wild,” commission member Philip Gerrie said. That leads to “devastation of tropical fish from places like Southeast Asia,” he said. The proposed ban, which the commission just adopted after a year of study, was expanded to cover animal breeders as well as pet stores. Gerrie accused the “human” species of exploiting the environment – and the fish. “Humans are overfishing for food,” he said. “There’s a huge market for aquarium fish. That creates a demand.”

As for people who would argue that it’s just a goldfish? “That’s how we are in this society,” Gerrie said. “Some people say, ‘It’s just a human’ – when it comes to some that kill. It’s a matter of degree. Where do you stop?

Local merchant like Ocean Aquarium owner Justin Hau is dumbfounded. “The city is taking more and more control,” Hau said. “They are very stupid.”

 Quite a leap to compare a human being killing another human being to wanting a goldfish for your kid. But that’s how dramatic the environmentalists will be to validate their points.

The Inevitable…

After all, it was just a matter of time before disgraced representative Anthony Weiner resigned. He gave a press conference this morning in which he was heckled (lewd language included).

He apologized for the personal mistakes he had made.  He described his actions as a “distraction”. Most importantly, he needs to “heal” from the damage that he has caused. “Of course, I want to express my gratitude to my family. To my mother and father, who instilled in me the values that carried me this far.”

Are you kidding me?  Yes, those values carried you all the way to resign from elected office. His parents must be so proud.


North Carolina Defunds Murderous Planned Parenthood

Life is precious. A baby in the womb is a human being!

North Carolina has joined Indiana and Kansas in defunding the baby-killing mill called Planned Parenthood – an oxymoron of a name, because anyone who kills his/her offspring is no parent.

In November 2009, after seeing an ultrasound of a baby in the womb, a former director of a Planned Parenthood branch in Bryan, Texas, had an awakening of conscience. Abby Johnson admitted what had been, until then, the stuff of rumor:

  • Planned Parenthood has a monthly abortion quota or goal;
  • Planned Parenthood has a financial incentive to perform as many abortions as possible.

Urban Christian News reports, June 15, 2011, that Republican state representatives in North Carolina have voted to override Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue’s veto of the state budget Wednesday morning, ensuring that a provision to strip all federal and state money from Planned Parenthood will take effect on July 1.

NC's pro-abortion Democrat governor, Beth Perdue

As in Indiana and Kansas, the North Carolina vote is prompted by Planned Parenthood’s provision of abortions. The vote will result in Planned Parenthood North Carolina (PPNC) losing $434,000 a year in state and federal funds. Women who want an abortion at PPNC will now have to pay out of their own pocket.

NC’s conservative lawmakers have another bill that would not just defund PPNC but restrict access to abortions.
