Presidential Executive Order on the Review of Designations Under the Antiquities Act

Antiquities Act Executive Order-Overwrought Response Disregards Real Risks of Lack of Transparency and Unbridled Presidential Discretion

How the Delphi Technique Is Used to Distort Policy

GREAT NEWS: Interior Department Releases List of Monuments Under Review, Announces First-Ever Formal Public Comment Period for Antiquities Act Monuments

_______________________________________________________

Presidential Executive Order on the Review of Designations Under the Antiquities Act

If you understand sustainable development, you understand its goal is to allow the global elite to control all of the world’s resources (air, water, land,) and people. The day-to-day operations for this grand scheme are to be carried out by hordes of unelected bureaucrats (sometimes called engineers or technocrats).

For this scheme to be realized one of the key goals requires the federalization of most or all private property. This is being done a variety of ways; through the use of conservation easements, the Wildlands Project, and through abuse of the Antiquities Act by our presidents. (For more information on these topics review Lesson 3).

The Antiquities Act, which was passed in 1906, authorizes the president to single-handedly designate any federal public land as a national monument. When used incorrectly, besides tying up resources critical to national security, the Antiquities Act diminishes private property rights in America destroying economic activity and the ability for America’s citizens to live self-sufficient lives independent of the federal government.

Fortunately President Trump’s Executive Order to review the designations under the Antiquities Act will begin the process of reining in abuse of private property rights. This executive order may actually cause a number of national monuments to be returned back to the control of the state and/or private citizens. To read the actual E.O., which is relatively short, with clear and important wording, please click on this link.

Antiquities Act Executive Order-Overwrought Response Disregards Real Risks of Lack of Transparency and Unbridled Presidential Discretion

This important article explains why presidents with a stroke of their pens have been allowed the power to designate, using the Antiquities Act, virtually any feature anywhere in America as a national monument; even though the designations often cause damage to local communities, private citizens, and/or national security. To read this article, please click on this link.

Note: The author of this article, when he discussed lack of transparency and public involvement in the decision-making process, is describing the Delphi Technique (also known a Visioning or Consensus Planning).

How the Delphi Technique Is Used to Distort Policy

The Delphi Technique, which was discussed in detail in Lesson 9 at www.agenda21course.com, allows those in control of the decision-making process to orchestrate in advance the outcome they desire at the end of the process. Progressives make sure the predetermined outcome is obtained by preventing those citizens most likely to be harmed by the process any real input to the process. There is an illusion that these citizens are affecting the outcome, but in reality that is not the case. The outside forces decide who gets the important seats at the table and manipulate what data is allowed to be used to make the final decision. The citizens most likely to be harmed never have a chance. The predetermined outcome was never in doubt. The game is rigged from the beginning. The folks whose land is taken or affected in a negative way by the Antiquities Act rarely have a chance to truly affect the final designation but must live with its outcome.

Interior Department Releases List of Monuments Under Review,
Announces First-Ever Formal Public Comment Period for Antiquities Act Monuments

THIS IS SO COOL! FINALLY a president who recognizes a national land grab of epic proportions when he sees it!

For the first time ever the Department of Interior is calling for a review of all National Monuments, including Marine National Monuments, containing over 100,000 acres AND they are encouraging the public to weigh in.

This article provides a list of National Monuments that will be reviewed and their acreage. You will be amazed at the number of acres represented in this list-and this is not a total list of all National Monuments. The article also provides all the information you need to provide your comments. It also validates that it is the job of the federal government to allow the citizen to help shape policy; particularly when the citizens’ property rights are caught in the cross-hairs, in this case, of the Antiquities Act.

The article does not make it clear if citizens who are not directly impacted should chime in or not. This is concerning because it is likely various powerful and politically motivated environmental groups, like the Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, etc. will be doing everything in their power to Delphi the process. For this reason I urge all of you to, at the least, send in general comments such as “without strong property rights in America, we will be deprived of a strong economy and the ability to be self-reliant”.

This is yet another opportunity provided to the citizen by the Trump Administration to restore America. To take advantage of this opportunity read this article by clicking on this link.

Summary of Technocracy Rising, the Trojan Horse of Global Transformation

Flashback – Carbon Currency: A New Beginning for Technocracy?

Good News: Pentagon Grows, While E.P.A. and State Dept. Shrink in Trump’s Budget
____________________________________________________

Summary of Technocracy Rising, the Trojan Horse of Global Transformation

Recently the author of this website read Patrick M. Wood’s book, Technocracy Rising, the Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, which I cannot too strongly recommend to the reader.  Technocracy Rising provides in detail the 150 years of history leading up to the current crisis in our country which now threatens to permanently destroy our representative government, our religion, our privacy, our property rights, and our very freedom. Woods does a fabulous job of providing the names of the key players and associated organizations behind this awful effort, as well as explaining how and why these seditious players are doing this to America and the globe.

Do not let the term “technocracy” throw you. Technocracy mostly refers to the way our society is being altered through the replacement of elected officials with unelected data-driven “experts”, whom he calls “engineers”. These technocrats/engineers/bureaucrats then report to, and take direction, from the global elite. Sound familiar? It should. This book highlights the key events and players, who up until 1992 set the stage for the signing, in 1992 by President Bush the Younger, of the treaty Agenda for the 21st Century (aka Agenda 21, aka sustainable development, aka UN Agenda 2030).

Technocracy Rising provides a fascinating, informative, comprehensive, and rather scary look at the future of the globe-unless a rapid course correction occurs. Especially concerning (at least to me) are the chapters on the surveillance state, the Smart Grid, and carbon currency. Together these three will allow the collection and analysis of all the details of our lives so the elite can decide where we use energy, which then allows them to determine when and where we are using too much energy. Armed with this information, and because by then cash will have been replaced by personalized carbon currency which will be doled out in a severely limiting way, the elite will be able to monitor and control all of our daily activities through the use of Smart Meters, Smart Appliances, and the rationing of energy.

Something as simple as washing dishes will require you to ask yourself a whole series of questions. When in a 24 hours period of time am I allowed to wash dishes? Do I have enough carbon currency available to wash dishes and, if so, do I also have enough carbon currency available to use hot water? If I over-use my energy allotment, what energy related activity will I have to fore-go?

Can you say “Yikes?”

This then gives you a small glimpse of the Utopia promised by the Left.

Regardless of how important it is to read this book in its entirety, some of you will not, for a variety of reasons, do so. In that case, here is an article, also written by Patrick M. Woods, which provides a partial summary of portions of his book, Technocracy Rising. To read this article, click on this link. 

Good News: Pentagon Grows, While E.P.A. and State Dept. Shrink in Trump’s Budget

Whether President Trump is aware of Agenda 21 and all of its ramification, it would appear common sense has made it clear to him that a deteriorated military and a bloated federal government spitting out economy choking regulations is not a good thing for a strong America.

Stop Multiculturalism
I Have a Plan to Destroy America by Richard D. Lamm

Call Out Corruption
Tucker Carlson Takes on Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune
GOP Wants to Eliminate Shadowy DOJ Slush Fund Bankrolling Leftist Groups

Fight the Scam that is Climate Change and the Illusion of Sustainability

Good News
Trump Orders EPA Review of “Horrible” Obama Water Decree
 _____________________________________________________________

We, the conservatives, may have won the election, but we are far from winning the war to save America from the Left. We are indeed in the fight of our life. Each of us must understand how this fight must be fought and our part in that fight.

1. We must stop Multiculturalism

I Have a Plan to Destroy America by Richard D. Lamm
Over a decade ago Former Democrat Governor of Colorado, Richard Lamm, gave a great speech on how multiculturalism would be used to destroy America. This speech, sadly, was prophetic. This speech provides a clear understanding of the role multiculturalism has played during the 21st century in the destruction of America and her culture, and for that reason alone is well worth reviewing. You may choose to listen to the speech on the Mark Levin radio show or you may choose to read the speech by clicking on this link.

Suggestion: When anyone tries to tout the greatness of diversity, you counter by saying only by embracing  our similarities, rather than our differences, can we create the better outcome; unity. Only through unity can America survive to meet the needs of all of her citizens.

2. We must bravely call out corruption

Tucker Carlson Takes on Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune – 2/2/17
It is critical organizations like the Sierra Club be exposed for what they are and are not. They are not an environmental organization. They are an arm of the Progressive Party. This short video proves the Sierra Club uses “bait and switch” tactics to redirect monies they are given into the coffers of other Leftist organizations. If the Sierra Club stayed focused, as they should, on the environment, they would not be funneling money to unrelated Leftist causes. To watch Brune squirm under Carlson questioning, click on this link.

GOP Wants to Eliminate Shadowy DOJ Slush Fund Bankrolling Leftist Groups
This article explains how the Obama regime, after fining American companies massive amounts of money, “encouraged/incentivized” those same companies to “donate” upwards of 3 billion dollars to Leftist activist organizations. Keep in mind two things. This money should have gone into the U.S. treasury to lessen the burden on the taxpayer. Second, these companies must recover the “donated” money from somewhere. One guess as to where they might find this money. Yup, you. By charging you higher prices for their goods and services theses companies restore their bottom line. This is not a victimless crime. We, the American people are the victim. To learn more click on this link.

Suggestion: Call you U.S. Representative and Senators and encourage them to support James Lankford (R. Oklahoma), who introduced the Stop Settlement Slush Fund Act of 2017, and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R. Virginia), who submitted similar legislation in the house.
There is also a larger bill attempting to address the $83 billion in fees, fines, and other revenue independent of the appropriations process being addressed by U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R. Ala.). This bill would take away control of these revenue streams from the bureaucrats in the various federal agencies and return control of the funds back to the Congress. The bill is known as the Agency Accountability Act (H.R. 850). These bills should go a long way towards reducing the abuse by the Obama Administration. (Links to these action items are included in the link provided for the previous article.)

3. We Must Continue to Fight the Scam that is Climate Change and the Illusion that Sustainability

Another Climate Alarmist Admits Real Motive Behind Warming Scare
To read more disturbingly honest direct quotes from the Climate Change Alarmists proving their real agenda click on this link.

The Hidden Agenda of Sustainability IllusionsA Must Read
A key argument given by the Left explaining why we must create environmental sustainability revolves around the idea we may meet the needs of the current generation only to the extent that doing so will not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Can you say, “BAM!” That is the sound of this article destroying this argument in a clear, concise, factually driven way. It is great! Read it, share it, and use its ideas in conversations with friends, neighbors, and legislators.  To read this jewel click on this link.

4. Good News

Trump Orders EPA Review of “Horrible” Obama Water Decree
We on the Right are not without hope. This hope springs from two sources; the citizen and the leadership provided by President Donald Trump. If we, the citizen, refuse to be silenced and shoved to the back of the bus, and instead rally behind Donald Trump’s leadership, we may yet prevail. This uplifting article highlights how President Trump by undermining the Waters of the United States E.O. (WOTUS), with the stroke of his pen, frees up immense economic activity while protecting our sacred property rights. Read this encouraging article by clicking on this link.

Introduction:
If America is to restore herself and her place in the World, Obama’s executive orders must be negated, the federal agencies must be eliminated or reformed, and America’s finances and values must be restored. Electing Donald Trump provides hope that at least some of these things will come to pass.
Unfortunately, there are four institutions who will resist with all of their might this reclamation of America; public education (including the universities), Hollywood, the media, and certain churches, the most noteworthy being the Catholic Church. This newsletter will focus heavily on the last of these; the Catholic Church of which, for full disclosure, I am a member.
All of these have a number of things in common. They are powerful, controlled by the Left, and have an immense influence over our children. So much so, if we do not do something to alter these institutions, it is only a matter of time before enough of our children will be of an age to willingly, in their ignorance and naiveté, vote themselves into the hellish world of Socialism-all in the belief it is the only way to save the planet.
Those of us who understand Agenda 21 understand its main goal is to use ruses like Climate Change to redistribute the wealth from rich countries to poor countries and remove and replace elected officials with multiple layers of bureaucrats controlled by powerful and rich elites. In other words, Climate Change has little to do with the environment and everything to do with centralizing wealth and power into the hands of a very few individuals.
Even as the Right gains control of the political process in America, the Catholic Church, with its immense power around the globe, is taking an aggressive stand in favor of MAN-MADE Climate Change. As you read the articles provided, you might ask yourself several questions.

  1. Is the pope worried more about the planet than he is about the salvation of its people, ultimately creating a religion based on the worship of the planet rather than the God who created the planet?
  2. Is this really an area in which the pope should be involving himself, and by extension millions of its members, given the highly politicized nature of the topic and the lack of surety that the planet is heating or, if it is, that the temperature increase is caused by man’s activities.
  3. Is it even ethical for the pope to direct those in his flock down this questionable path when many in his flock have no access to the internet, books, etc. which could provide information to them that is counter to that which the pope is presenting. Information such as long before the existence of man (and his fossil fuel based civilization) the climate had multiple warming and cooling periods.

Catholic Church: New Priests Will be Expected to Preach Global Warming    
There are so many things in this article that are disturbing. Let us just focus on one. You can discern the rest on your own.
The article says it is important Christians who deny Climate Change or those who do not alter their lives in a way to prevent Climate Change “need ‘an ecological conversion’, whereby the effects of their encounter with Jesus Christ becomes evidence in their relationship with the world around them”.
Is Pope Francis suggesting that to save our souls, we must save our (possibly unthreatened) planet by embracing the tenets of and accept the sacrifices inherent in the Climate Change dogma? Because if this is where this is going, it leads to a whole different set of questions.
What will happen in the confessional if the parishioners are required to accept and implement proper Climate Change behaviors in their daily life? Will penitents then feel compelled, much like the breaking of one of the Ten Commandments, to admit to the priest  they had their thermostats too high, forgot to recycle the newspaper, failed to buy a Smart Car, or any of dozens of other crimes against the planet? Will the priest hearing the confession be required to punish the penitent for sins against the planet? And what form would that punishment take? Would the penitent need to put solar cells on his house or donate to Green Peace to atone?  Am I crazy or is this crazy?
To read more of the rationalizations the Catholic Church, lead by Pope Francis, is advancing in an effort to create compliance to social justice, economic justice, and environmental justice policies, click on this link.

Pray for Care of Creation   
If you would like to read about some of the ways the Catholic Church will ramp up the indoctrination of its flock into the acceptance of Climate Change, being sure to click on at least a few of the “prayer ideas”, click on this link.

Pope Francis and Religion of Climate Change 
Belling the Cat is a famous painting with a fabulous moral. A group of mice were tired of not having enough warning of the cat’s approach. The mice convened a conference where it was suggested all they needed to do was to put a bell around the cat’s neck. After much back slapping at the brilliance of this idea, one of the mice said, but who is willing to bell the cat?
The moral of the story, one the Catholic Church would do well to heed, is it is one thing to say that something should be done, but quite a different matter to do it. In other words, the Catholic Church may think it is a great idea to expect all of the people, especially in developed countries, to reduce their carbon foot print and their dreams, but will the Church hierarchy be willing to do the same? To learn some of the many ways the Church needs to put up or shut up, or reveal itself for just another hypocritical institution, click on this link.

Hope on the Horizon?
On the positive side, we have a new President-elect who is putting together a powerful cabinet full of extremely knowledgeable, successful individuals. Individuals who, in most cases, will take one (or more) of the pieces of Agenda 21 policy and throw it on the scrape pile of history.

Trump’s Cabinet picks signal shift in priorities Fox News!”      
It would be easy for those not knowledgeable about Agenda 21 to think those against Climate Change are anti-environment. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are pro-environment but not at the price of our personal or economic freedoms. Too many environmental regulations result in the taking of money out of the pockets of the average citizen; money which may be needed to pay the mortgage, feed the kids, etc. These regulations also often compromise property rights. A balance must be struck between protecting the environment and protecting our Constitutional rights and our pocket books.
Watch this video to decide for yourself if Rick Perry, Trump’s pick for Secretary of Energy, and Ryan Zinke, Trump’s Pick for Secretary of Interior, will strike the right balance between the environment, economics, and energy, by clicking on this link.
And then there is Scott Pruitt, Trump’s Pick for the EPA. Pruitt is an opponent of manmade Climate Change along with its onerous regulations and a proponent of fossil fuels. Please watch this short video produced by CNN. Note, the points made by CNN in this video are presented in a way that would make their liberal base upset at this pick, but in contrast the video makes me want to find Scott Pruitt and give him a great big old hug! To watch this very short video, click on this link.

We Cannot Become Complacent    
We cannot become complacent because, even as Trump attempts to drain the swamp, our tax payer funded school systems are guiding, and, yes, sometimes forcing, our youth down the path of liberalism. The following two articles, sadly, shows just how determined some school administrators are to destroy any signs of conservative values within the halls of education- even if it means intimidating the students and denying them their constitutional rights.

The article “Carmel High School Faces Lawsuit Threat after Pro-Live Poster” and the article “Victory-Christmas Poster Can Stay Up Says Court” illustrate this issue. It is hoped Trump’s pick for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, will change the climate in our schools so diversity of thought; political or otherwise, is valued  much more than ethnic and sexual diversity.
