Affirmative Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH)-Stanley Kurtz

And then there is the not-so-Smart Growth. The endless series of regulations that attempt to nudge/force the citizens to live “happily” cheek to jowl in urban areas. Stanley Kurtz is the author of Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities.  Mr. Kurtz does a great job in this 8 minute video explaining an Obama policy called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH), which is expected to get approved in December of 2014, as well as other elements of smart growth.

Court ruling in land dispute could threaten bike trails

Good news, the Supreme Court got one right. The Supreme Court ruled 8-1 that government easements used for railroad beds over public and private land in the West expired once the railroads went out of business, and the land must revert to its owners. That means that bike paths pushers cannot just assume that they can build bike paths along existing abandoned federally granted railways. They will need to purchase this land from the rightful owner.

However, even good news causes ripples. This ruling will no doubt cause a series of dominoes to fall. There will be more use of eminent domain, which in turn will cause more lawsuits, which in turn will cause the cost/mile for building a bike path to increase. The hope would be that all of this turmoil will convince the American people that, in most cases, bike paths are not feasible. If the American people figure that out, the federal government will have lost a key tool, bike paths, in their Agenda 21 toolkit. To learn more, click on this link.

Washington State Edges Closer to Taxing Drivers by the Mile

It is often hard to tell if the left is amazingly brilliant or incredibly stupid. Obama Care is a colossal mess, so one would assume that idiots are involved, unless the goal is a mess from which Single Payer will result. This story shows this same kind of craziness. In Washington state because too many people are buying fuel efficient cars (Isn’t that what the left wants?), the money brought in from gas taxes has decreased (Oops, guess the left didn’t factor that in!). So now the state has to figure out how to still manage to get its hands into the pockets of those who own those pesky little fuel-efficient cars. To learn more, click on this link.

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

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

The Truth About Smart Meters

As discussed in Lesson 3, Smart Meters, besides allowing your electric company to turn off your appliances remotely, can be used to monitor your behavior. This short video does a very nice job explaining how Smart Meters are really a survellence device.

Guardian UK 10:10 Vile Eco Terror Video

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.

Star Communities


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
