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.
