“Stopping Obama’s Assault On the Suburbs”

The article, “Stopping Obama’s Assault On the Suburbs” by Stanley Kurtz, provides a chilling explanation of how Obama’s recent ruling, Affirmatively Forwarding Fair Housing (AFFH), goes way past preventing discrimination and moves on to creating rules to force integration of minorities into our neighborhoods (aka social justice) on the taxpayer’s dime. In addition, these social engineering policies concentrate even more people in our population centers where they can be more easily controlled and monitored through Smart Growth regulations.

This article, which was written in mid-2014, also discusses an effort by Arizona Congressman Paul Goser to create legislation to prevent funds from being used to implement the AFFH rules.

Note: I contacted Congressman Goser’s office on 3/2/15, to see if he was still attempting in 2015 to defund these efforts at forced integration of our neighborhoods, and was told he is indeed again this year (2015) working towards that goal. I will attempt to let you know in the future of the progress of this effort.

Citizens in California’s Bay Area Fight to Stop Pack and Stack Building

We in the United States realize that many of our laws are affected by the crazy legal precedents established in California. This is certainly the case with all things environmental. Californians are infamous for going overboard to protect the environment. That makes them especially easy targets for a scam like sustainable development. That is why it comes as no surprise that California, especially around the San Francisco Bay Area, is currently the poster child for pack and stack building where living in multi-family housing, walking, bike-riding, or taking public transit to work are being forced on the citizens. In this August 6, 2013 article the citizens tell how their efforts to stop these restrictive measures have fallen on deaf ears, and that they, with the help of the Pacific Legal Fund plan to fight back. Please click the link to learn more about what will be your future if sustainable development is not stopped. link

Smart Growth Fraud

This article has been written by Dr. Michael Coffman. The same Dr. Coffman who showed the Biodiversity/Wildlands Project map to the Senate in 1994, and by so doing, stopped the ratification of the Biodiversity Treaty. This article explains why moving the American citizen, or any other country’s citizens, into pack-n-stack living conditions in the human settlements is not a good thing either for the citizen or the environment. Hence the name Smart Growth Fraud. link

Lesson 7: Regional Governments Will Destroy Our Local Representative Gov’t

Speaker's GavelThis is the seventh lesson in a series of ten lessons on Agenda 21, commonly known as Sustainable Development. Today we will learn …

How Regional Governments Will Destroy Our Local Representative Government and Hastens a One World Order

It is impossible to create a One World Order unless borders are completely eliminated. Take the European Union as an example. All the nations of the European Union share the same currency, have a free flow of people across their borders, have a central tax system with the means to enforce collections, and a common court system. That said, are they really sovereign anymore? Do their borders serve any function anymore? After all, there is a reason they are called the European Union. Continue reading

Lesson 6: Grants are Used as a Major Tool to Implement Agenda 21

GrantsThis is the sixth lesson in a series of ten lessons on Agenda 21, commonly known as Sustainable Development. Today we will learn how…

Grants are Used as a Major Tool to Implement Agenda 21

As one looks at the financial crisis in which one finds the United States, whether one sees this as a bad or a good thing depends on one’s point of view.  If the federal government wishes to create voluntary compliance at a local level with certain federal goals, would not making grants available to cash-starved local governmental entities, grants with strings attached, not be an effective way to create compliance?  Making matters worse is that the grant money the government uses to create local compliance is your tax dollars.

Is Mary Granato’s Regional Government Responsible for Her Death?

This sad story shows how difficult, as Al Gore said, “the wrenching transformation of society” will be. The bike paths, walking paths, and mass transit lines for our new human settlements are being forced onto private property over the objections of the individuals who are being forced to sacrifice their land to eminent domain.

The owner of a property in Montgomery County, 85 year old Mary Granato, has been fighting to prevent Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission from having her large trees cut down and her front yard taken through eminent domain. MVRPC has plans to construct a bike path within 8 feet of her front door. This battle for property rights has been going on for most of a year.

This story ends even more tragically than normal. On July 31, 2013, while the county, against Mary’s wishes, was cutting down the mature trees immediately in front of her 150 year old house, Mary had a heart attack and died. To read about the struggle Mary has had since last October to stop this infringement of her property rights, please click here. link

Food Charters-Good Idea Until It Goes Bad

Sustainable Development ideas often are presented as beneficial ideas. Ideas that will help the individual and/or the environment, and possibly do-at least in the short haul. But, when one is dealing with Agenda 21 policy, it is critical to always keep the end game in mind. The end game is to move the human population into a pack and stack situation in the human settlements, where all of their food and fiber needs must be obtained from the land immediately around the human settlements.  To achieve this end game it is critical that humans are slowly conditioned to believe that it is a great idea to buy locally grown food. It is only later that they will find out that they will be the ones growing this food, and that there will be no alternatives. Continue reading

Clean Ohio Fund

The proponents of Agenda 21 are brilliant stategists. They know that it is hard to fight something that looks like a good idea. That is the case when you go to the Clean Ohio Fund website. Many of the things that are discussed sound great. The photos just make you feel all warm and fuzzy. Put your critical thinking hat on and use the knowledge you acquired during this course.  Continue reading

Want to see crazy?

This is your chance (Run, if you can!) to see bureacracy in action. This is the “Notice of Funding Availability for HUD’s Fiscal Year 2010 Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program”. To think that some federal employee is paid to write this tedious gobbly-gook. Page after page explaining in confusing/vague terms how your federal government is using your tax dollars to promote social, economic, and environmental justice. It is enough to make your head explode! link
