Normally the author of the website www.Agenda21course.com does not compose the articles included in the newsletter. In this the author would like to make an exception.
The official website for Smart Growth, www.smartgrowthamerica.org , is working actively, aggressively, and successfully to advance Agenda 21 in an attempt to transform our cities.
The Smart Growth America website lists 10 principles which are currently being used to transform our cities. What the website does not tell you are the many negative consequences to the quality life of those living in the cities. Nor does it tell the truly horrible impact these principle will have on those living in the rural lands. Nor does it tell you how Smart Growth will steal freedom from every single American regardless of where they live. This then is why the information in this article is so important.
Below are the 10 smart growth principles listed on the www.smartgrowthamerica.org website which are being used to convince those going to the site just how wonderful will be the results of smart growth planning. You may click on any of the principles to see more information.
1. Mix land uses
Little things can go a long way towards transforming America-and not always in a good way.
One of those “little things” are the scooters, which are suddenly flooding our cities in large numbers. In Columbus, Ohio eight vendors will each be allowed to put 500 scooters on the streets/sidewalks. Safety wise, what could possibly go wrong in this scenario? Never fear. The solution according to the article is to simply “redesign the city streets” spending untold millions of dollars to allow the safer movement of the scooter riders and bicyclists.
More importantly the result, as more and more of the road is being dedicated to the use of scooters and bicycles, is greater congestion for those driving cars. This in turn encourages more and more folks to move closer to the downtown resulting in the building of more and more high rises to accommodate the influx of people to the downtown.
Voile! The city is redesigned into a Smart Growth city where the lives of the now packed and stacked citizenry can be more easily controlled by the Elite.
Perhaps a “little thing” like adding scooters to the city streets and sidewalks is not such a “little thing.”

Being sure that the homes in this Michigan town were assessed correctly for taxes was the excuse used by assessors to trespass INTO the town’s homes. When some homeowners refused the assessors entry, the homeowners were punished through their wallets.
Only because these policies were created by elected officials, who could be threatened with being “unelected”, was there a happy ending. Without this happy ending, would the next bureaucrats have attempted to invade the homes to check the amount of insulation in the walls or the efficiency of the appliances?

This video is done by an extremely dedicated activist in California. I will have to say this is one of his best videos. In spite of the fact that everything he says about the effort by the United Nations to convince us to eat bugs is crazy and scary, it is also just so darn absurd that you have to laugh (mostly to prevent yourself from hitting your head repeatedly against the desk top.)

Do yourself and your blood pressure a favor and read about the successful attempt in the U.S. House to block any funds from being used for the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) proposed Rapid Growth Area Transit Program. If passed, this will decrease the theft from the federal highway fund of tax dollars that were going to be thrown down the mass transit black hole.

This short video uses information about development in Los Angeles, California to debunk the supposed necessity of creating a multitude of high rises to replace the suburbs. Further, the video explains how by following the money you can see who will really benefit if pack and stack is achieved, and why it is a mistake on all levels to allow this densification to occur.

The federal government is diverting transportation dollars away from the roads and bridges to “transportation alternatives” in order to transform/control how (and if) Americans are allowed to travel around the country.
The federal highway trust fund that funds our roads and bridges runs out of funds at the end of May (2015). A significant part of the problem is that 19 cents of every dollar that should be spent on roads and bridges is being diverted to things like bicycle and walking paths, scenic overlooks, and environmental pollution mitigation.
This article does such a great job of explaining why it makes absolutely NO sense to be diverting this money away from the building and repairing of roads and bridges I suggest strongly that you send it, or a link, to all of your representatives; federal, state, and local.
