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.

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
The letter to the editor below is an actual letter that was sent by the owner of this website to their hometown paper. The situation that triggered this letter occurred when the town was discussing their likely acceptance of a Complete Street Grant (see Lesson 4) to the tune of 3.4 million dollars from a regional government (see Lesson 7).

This is a extremely well written article which demonstrates how regional governments will attempt to redistribute the wealth from the suburbs to the inner cities. This article, written by Stanley Kurtz, is adapted from his new book, Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities. link
This is an excellently written article that explains how the federal government created regionalism with the intent of using it to replace local control and as an aid in taking our private property rights. When local government meets their short term needs by accepting grants from their regional governement, local government is cooperating in the very process that will make local control obsolete.

This an excellent article by long time opponent of Agenda 21, Michael Shaw. He will explain how regionalism is a key strategy in implementing Agenda 21 in our communities and a threat to our representative government: link
Regional Governments in Ohio
The Ohio Association of Regional Councils comprises 23 agencies serving more than 1,500 municipalities, villages, townships and counties and representing 10,500,000 residents of those communities around the state.
The regional governments in Ohio collectively have the ability over time to break down America’s Constitutionally formulated government structure.
Agenda 21 is being implemented through the use of grants, indoctrination, and regulation. Once the majority of the population has been “trained” to accept these new policies, it is time to bring the last of the “resistors” into compliance through intimidation. This very disturbing video was done as an advertisement in 2010 in the United Kingdom (United Kingdom is further down the path of Agenda 21 than is the U.S.) to “encourage” the population to reduce their energy usage by 10% in 2010. PLEASE KNOW THAT THIS VIDEO IS VERY GRAPHIC AND NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN.

In their own words:
“Star Communities are communities that are willing to abide by a national framework and performance-management system that will finally allow local governments to measure and rate these communities sustainability performance. This framework for sustainability encompasses the social, economic and environmental dimensions of community, and includes a rating system that drives continuous improvement and fosters competition. There will be an online system that gathers, organizes, analyzes, and presents information required to meet sustainability goals.” Continue reading →
