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.
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 our constitutionally guaranteed property rights. A balance must be struck; one that balances the needs of the planet against the needs of the people who live on the planet.
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!

Remember that while the1992 treaty Agenda for the 21st Century was never ratified by the Senate, its principles of economic, environmental, and social justice were embedded into every federal agency through the efforts of the Clinton administration. The result was rogue agencies where the bureaucrats in these agencies became unanswerable to the People. These agencies instead were mandated to do whatever was necessary to transform America into a socialist country un-tethered from its founding values and principles. This required the agencies to ignore the facts and to find “experts” who, after being bribed with federal grants, would reach consensus to whatever statements advanced social, economic, and/or environmental justice goals.
Imagine the fear felt by those in the EPA when Scott Pruitt, with a clear goal to reform the EPA by requiring it to use facts and the scientific method instead of consensus, became head of the EPA. To read more about the EPA’s painful journey towards reform, click on this link.
