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.

Then there is the North American Continent, where treaties like the North American Free Trade Agreement and our open borders threaten the sovereignty of the United States.

Once borders become irrelevant, then to all extents and purposes, the affected countries have been combined into one larger political entity. At that point, would that not make it much easier to combine a number of these larger blocks of countries into a one world government?

There are also boundaries between local governmental entities, like cities, townships, and counties, and these boundaries, too, are under attack.

To understand this, we must not forget that the United State’s government was designed by the founders to be strongest at the local level. As has been discussed, because the local governments are desperate for cash, it is not difficult to make them accept grants with strings attached. It is not just grant money from the states and federal government that can tempt the local governments, but also grants extended from Regional Governments. Regional Governments are cropping up at an amazing speed.

Below is a list of regional governments in Ohio that belong to the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC).

Erie Regional Planning Commission

Lima-Allen County Regional Planning Commission

Licking County Area Transportation Study

Below is the mission statement for NARC (National Association of Regional Councils).


As a national public interest organization, NARC works with and through its members to:

* Shape federal policy that recognizes the increased value of local intergovernmental cooperation;

*Advocate effectively for the role of regional councils in the coordination, planning and delivery of current and future federal programs;

*Provide research and analysis of key national issues and developments that impact our members; and

*Offer high quality learning and networking opportunities for regional organization through events, training and technical assistance.

When you read NARC’s Mission Statement, it is easy to see that NARC (National Association of Regional Councils) is the “gate keeper” for the information, money, and power that are being directed downward from the federal government to the regional governments who then decides how best to direct it to the local government.

In other words, the local government, which was meant from the founding of this country to be the “dog” and not “the tail”, is now subservient to all layers of government above it through grants that the regional government offer to the local government. Put another way, just as Presidential Executive Orders can make the Congress irrelevant, so can regional governments make local government irrelevant.

Regional governments can also be a threat to boundaries between states. Notice in the list of Ohio regional governments provided, one of them, OKI, straddles three state lines, Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. One would have to question how in the world a regional government could answer to three different state’s regulations. Conversely, one would wonder how, if a legislature in one state passes a new law, how that new law could be implemented and prosecuted in a different state. The answer… only if, at some point in time a One World Order makes the state borders become irrelevant.

This quote from the UN Commission on Global Governance, makes the case. It says…

Regionalism must precede globalism. We foresee a seamless system of governance from local communities, individual states, regional unions and up through to the United Nations itself.”

And then there is a new unholy alliance that has been created in recent years and enhanced by Executive Order 13602.

*Executive Order 13602, signed by President Obama in March 2012, gives Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) the authority to engage in city, community, and regional planning to “augment their vision for stability and economic growth…” This EO insures that “Federal assistance is more efficiently provided and used.” HUD now has the ability to create regulations to enforce local and regional planning that the government feels is beneficial to the fiscal stability of the U.S.

This E.O. increases the likelihood that various federal agencies, working hand in hand with regional government, will create make local government compliant to Sustainable Development policies. The series of steps goes like this; tax payer dollars are given by the Feds to the Dept. of Transportation (DOT) or the EPA, who directs them to Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), who directs them down to the Regional Governments, who dangle them with Sustainable Development strings in front of the faces of local governments to create compliance by the local governments to the Sustainable Development policies of the Feds.

An example of how this alliance works and will forward the building of the human settlements (see Lesson 4) is seen by looking at The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (Public Law 111‐117), where a total of $150,000,000  was provided to HUD for a Sustainable Communities Initiative.

HUD, then, established grant programs to improve regional planning efforts that integrate housing and transportation decisions, and to increase the capacity of municipal, regional, and state government to change land use and zoning practices. Of that total [$150,000,000], $100,000,000 was made available for the Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant program, $40,000,000 for Challenge Planning Grants, $8,500,000 for a joint HUD and DOT research and evaluation effort, and up to $1,500,000 for HUD’s Transformation.

In plain terms, what HUD is doing, once the money is funneled down to it, is to funnel the money down to the unelected boards of the Regional Governments, who in turn will provide grants to local governments to create “equitable” high density housing  complete with sidewalks and bike paths, likely using the Complete Street design (See Lesson 4), near public transit lines. In this way, once humans are forced off of the rural lands by the Wildlands Project (See Lesson 3) the human settlement infrastructure will be in place (See Lesson 4) and social, economic, and environmental justice will have been achieved (See Lesson 1).

Further, once humans arrive in these newly designed human settlements, their need for cars will be minimized or eliminated because of the bike paths, sidewalks, and nearby transit lines. The high density of humans will also allow for excellent surveillance and control by the government.

In summary, by funneling grant money through regional governments, the power of the local government is eliminated, along with the relevance of borders between the countries, states, or local governmental entities. Once borders are eliminated and our local governments with their elected officials are replaced by unelected bureaucrats serving on regional governments, a One World Order cannot be far behind.

The only thing still required is for the government to maintain control of the human population until enough time has passed for citizens to forget that there was ever a time when the citizen, through their vote, actually had a voice in their government. After all in the new world order…

“Individual rights have to take a back seat to the collective.” Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI, The  Wildlands Project

The next lesson, Lesson # 8, will allow you to learn how through indoctrination and the dumbing down of the curricula in the classroom, our children are learning that their God-given Constitutional rights must take a back seat to the common good.

However, before you go on to lesson #8, it is highly recommended that you read the supplemental materials provided as enrichment for Lesson #7. You may do this by clicking on the links to the lesson #7 supplemental provided below.
