Agenda 21 – Smart Growth Gurus Freaking Out

This just in from Rosa Koire, the  liberal democrat speaking out against U.N. Agenda 21, and being labeled a conservative tea partier for her stand!

I was interviewed in February 2012 for the July/August 2012 issue of the American Bar Association’s Probate and Property magazine.  The article is out and it’s a smear.  Classic techniques of omission of mention and manipulation of information were used by the attorney who interviewed me.  Please forward this article and the video I made of our interview below so that people can see yet another example of press distortion when reporting on UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development.

“We will not allow this to go unchallenged.  Americans deserve the truth, and are committed to exposing and stopping UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development in their schools, government, clubs, organizations, and media.  We are joining together to break the conspiracy of silence and disinformation surrounding the erection of a global totalitarian government worldwide.

 Awareness is the first step in the Resistance.

In my opinion, the 8 page article, “Navigating the Political Challenges to Sustainable Development,”  written by attorney,  James Slaton, is actually very encouraging.  It is not meant to be read by the general public.  It is an insider article for those in the planning and legal professions working to implement Smart Growth/Sustainable Development.  According to his article, the planners think we are a huge, well-funded monolithic force and they’re scrambling to come up with new strategies to deal with us because we’ve been successfully disrupting their Delphi Technique in meeting after meeting across the country.  Here’s a gem of a quote on page 6  by one of the air-head planners,“To us, hating sustainable development is like hating kittens.”

Slaton is a heavy-hitter in the Smart Growth community according to the website of his Louisiana law firm:

Mr. Slaton serves as the Chair of the Land Use and Zoning Committee of the American Bar Association Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section.  He is the Vice-Chair of the New Orleans Bar Association Real Property Committee.  Mr. Slaton serves as an Associate Member of the Urban Land Institute where he serves on the programming committee for the Louisiana Chapter.  Mr. Slaton is on the Professional Advisors Council of the Northshore Community Foundation.  He is a member of the American, Louisiana State, and New Orleans Bar Associations and an Associate Member of the Urban Land Institute.

Watch the video, read the article, go to a meeting and disrupt the Delphi Technique and check out Rosa’s websites.  She knows what she’s talking about and she’s not afraid to say so!  LOL

Agenda 21 Heads Up: Deadline Sept 20th Chance to Stop Funding!

There Is a Real Chance to Stop Funding 
for “Sustainable Communities.”

The House of Representatives have cut funding from Obama’s 
Partnership for Sustainable Communities program. The program has been targeted for elimination from the House FY 2012 spending bill.
Defunding Sustainable Development has also come through a Department of Transportation bill, a draft of which completely eliminates funding for what are called TIGER grants, which provides funding for the largest grants through the Partnership for Sustainable Communities program.
This is great news for those of us opposed to Sustainable Development. It means less money and fewer weapons coming out of Washington, DC to enforce this assault on property rights and America’s way of life.
Now the spending bill is moving to the Senate – the danger zone. Sustainablists are planning a major push to get the Senate to replace the appropriations for the Sustainable Communities budget. The American Planning Association (APA) is leading the charge, calling for massive pressure to be put on Senators in what the APA is calling “Planners Day,” set for September 20th.
The APA’s message to the Senators is that the cuts “ignores both our nation’s jobs crisis and the drastic need for infrastructure investment.” In fact, the House action is not only fiscally responsible in a day when the government is completely broke, but it is a lie that the program will help either jobs or infrastructure. The exact opposite is true. Sustainable Development is a jobs killer and it destroys infrastructure – refusing to build roads, tearing down dams and the like.
We can strike a huge blow against Sustainable Development.
Action to take:
On September 20th, call both of your U.S. Senators and demand that they maintain the House restrictions on the sustainability planning grants and the caps on planning expenses now called for in the Fiscal Year spending bill. Tell them America cannot afford these grants. The cuts will save billions of dollars and keep special interests out of your community’s planning decisions. Tell them you oppose Sustainable Development.
The Senate switchboard is (202) 224-3121
Make the calls and counter the impact of one of the nation’s most powerful forces behind Sustainable Development (APA). Win this fight and we will show that we are now strong enough to turn the tide away from top down control and soviet-style government – and towards freedom!
2. If you have a chance, call your Representative in the House and thank them for standing firm against this Sustainable Development monster. And ask them to continue to stand firm if the final bill goes to a conference committee. Defund Sustainable Development and strike a blow for fiscal sanity and freedom.  
Thank you for reading,
