As you likely know, on June 29, 2015 the Supreme Court ruled the EPA must take into account the cost of their regulations on the energy industry. The Supreme Court is to be lauded for this decision. It is a step in the right direction. If the EPA can be held to this new restriction, perhaps the coal industry can survive and continue to provide reasonably priced electricity for the citizens. Otherwise, all bets are off. To learn more, click on this link.

How Sustainable Development Policies Will Force Citizens Off of the Rural Lands.
“Land, because of its unique nature and the crucial role it plays in human settlement, cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. Social justice, urban renewal and development, the provision of decent dwellings-and healthy conditions for people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole.” The preamble to The Vancouver Action Plan approved at Habitat: United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (31 May to 11 June 1976).

How Public Private Partnerships Are Used by Government to Take Control of the Economy
A Public Private Partnership is sometimes referred to as a PPP or a 3P.
The definition for a Public Private Partnership is an exclusive partnership between a public entity and a private entity that uses the financial resources of the private sector to carry out the legal activities or functions of the public sector.
3P’s do not work in a free market way where competition decides who wins and who loses. Continue reading →
How Smart Growth Stategies are Used to Control Human Behavior Within the Human Settlement.
One of the goals of Agenda 21 is to re-wild over 50% (plus an additional 10% for buffer zones around the re-wilded areas) of the United States. Out of necessity, this will force the human population off the rural lands and into, using Agenda 21 language, “human settlements”. Once there, the behavior of humans can be more easily monitored and controlled, thus creating, “sustainability”. Continue reading →
As you know, the Federal Government, through the Water of the U.S. rule (an extension of the Clean Water Act of 1972) is trying to federalize, take control of, all the water in the United States. As you also know, a group of states led by North Dakota was successful in putting a halt to the effort (at least until further study is done). The question to be asked is the regulation halted in all 50 states or just in the states included in the North Dakota lead law suit? To learn the answer to this question, click on this link.
There are two links provided below to the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s (WBCSD) website. The first one will take you to the site itself, where if you spend only a few minutes roaming just through the “history” section found on the “about” page, you will see that this organization is not even trying to hide its associations to the United Nations and their Agenda 21 plans.
The second link will take you to where you can see which companies belong to this freedom sucking organization. After looking at this list you may want, where you can, to rethink where you spend your money .
Remember, in the brave new world of Agenda 21, big business-along with big government, and NGO’s-will have a very large say on the quality of your life and that of your children-if we allow this scam to continue unchecked. link link
PPP’s come in so many variations. Take Obamacare for example. As it morphs over time into its various forms, it is taking on all the trappings of a PPP of mega proportions. As this article points out, Obamacare is forcing more and more physicians to leave their private practice to seek the “protection” of large hospitals, where the government can play watch dog for the public in the private hospital setting. However, one should ask who is going to watch the government? Certainly not the hospital, as it becomes within its geographic area, a de facto monopoly ( another sign that this relationship is a type of PPP). The government in return has fewer health care facilities to control, making it easier to control what services the public can and cannot have. After all, even if grannie is relatively healthy, at some point is it really worth spending money on her? Of course no one on the left acknowledges that there are death panels, although they seem to be awfully fond of the Complete Lives System: link
As you learned in Lesson 3 on the Wildlands, the goal of the Biodiversity Treaty is to return at least 50% (60% if you count the buffer zones) of the U.S. to the condition it was in before Christopher Columbus arrived on our shores. Since obviously there were no dams in existence at that time, the extreme environmentalists have the dams in America in their crosshairs. As is so often the case with the proponent of Agenda 21, they often create 2-fers. In this case by removing the existing dams, they return the river to nature, plus they flood out many of the citizens who live downstream, forcing them over time to move, the environmentalists hope, into town where they can be put under control of the government.

This article published on July 30,2013 would best be read after reading the article also posted under Lesson 3 (Wildlands Project) titled The Purposeful Flooding of America’s Heartland as this article gives greater background into how the Federal Government with the support of the Corp of Engineers has made removing dams across the nation a priority in order to return them to their natural flow. This article, Dam Removal Begins in Cuyahoga Falls, provide documentation that this same policy is being followed in Ohio, and for the same reason. No mention is made about the increased likelihood of flooding concerns downstream caused by the removal of this dam. People and property must take a back seat to nature in our new sustainable world. To read more about the removal of this dam, and to view series of DamCam photos showing the removal of the dam, please click on this link .
The family farm is in the crosshairs of the federal government through the increasing number of regulations to which farmers are being asked to comply. Click on this link to learn how these regulations drove Bessemer Farms in Akron to totally change their farming model, and how, as more farmers follow suit, this will contribute to higher food costs for Americans. link
