Freedom21:

The ideas of governance on which America is founded represent, perhaps, man's greatest achievement. The idea that government must be empowered only by the consent of the governed, is the most powerful idea about governance ever conceived. At the end of the day, it is the idea, and the system of governance, that will guide all people to healthy, happy, and prosperous lives.

The mission of Freedom21 is to advance and promote
the principles of freedom at every level of government. Website HERE.

Agenda21Today

“From time to time, we have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden.”

               —Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address (1981)


Agenda 21 is the 21st Century PLAN for a “New World Order”
through GLOBAL GOVERNANCE.
  Agenda 21 is the ELITIST plan to control your life demanding you, “do as I say, not as I do”. You will be required to give up your individual freedom, your personal property and redistribute your wealth. Gone forever will be American exceptionalism, American nationalism and the western way of life as all will be  classified as unsustainable.  The ELITISTS will use the government to take your money, exercise more power and to control every aspect of your life.  Agenda 21 is not a Democratic or Republican “plan”, it reaches across the aisle.  The Elite will call us names and make up lies to try and divide us. We will not listen.  We Are Americans and we will never give up our lives, family, morality or country.

UN’s Agenda 21 Equals Organized ‘Snitching’

By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh  Sunday, September 4, 2011

imageAmerica was founded on the idea that private property is sacred. Americans cannot conceive their country without the right to own property. As they go about their daily lives, the United Nations Agenda 21 is methodically chipping away at our country’s solid foundation.

Under the guise of protecting the environment, water conservation, resources, reducing carbon footprint, reducing the use of electricity, smart grid, smart meters, cutting down the use of fossil fuels, separating people from their cars in favor of mass transit, biking and walking within five minutes of residence, returning land to wilderness by moving large rural and urban populations into high rise tenements in green zones, and social justice, the UN is taking over our lives.

UN Agenda 21 marches on in spite of the many revelations that global warming, climate change scare tactics, faulty data, and faux academic research from the University of East Anglia have been debunked.

U.S. Energy Secretary Chu, promoting engineering education in Portland, spoke about what he sees as the next great space race: Sustainability. Not only was he promoting engineering when our space program no longer exists, but his remarks on green energy came on the heels of three bankruptcies of “clean energy” companies that are yet to deliver any clean energy or provide the millions of jobs needed to replace the current ones lost during Obama’s misadministration of our fossil fuel-based economy. The most recent company to fail is Solyndra in spite of the heavy stimulus dollars invested in its venture. Read more here.

The Radical Education Elite and Agenda 21

 Far too many conservatives are failing to pay attention to the rise of global socialism at the hands of the United Nations through its Agenda 21. Agenda 21 embraces virtually every aspect of human life; it is being implemented aggressively in the United States.

"The overarching goal of Agenda 21 is to establish international norms of personal behavior that are dictated by a group of the world's so-called 'enlightened elite' who believe they know best how people ought to live therefore they should be allowed to tell the how they should live."

Americans and the American news media are all but ignoring the shenanigans by those who worship at the altar of the United Nations. The big story these days is the conflict between the U.S. Congress and President Barack Obama over the proposed debt ceiling increase, cuts in spending and the Democrat Party's favorite activity: Raising taxes on the rich (anyone making more than $200,000 per year).

Far too many conservatives are failing to pay attention to the rise of global socialism at the hands of the United Nations through its Agenda 21. It is easy to overlook world governance schemes when Americans are inundated with information regarding local and national events. 

Also, the problem with the media coverage of this United Nations labyrinth known as Agenda 21 is that it was created in 1992 and implemented in incremental actions by the U.N. and its supporters in the U.S., E.U., and other countries whose populations are eager to benefit from the work of others especially those enjoying success in the United States.

But make no mistake, even though Congress never approved the implementation of Agenda 21 programs in education, economics, the environment and other areas. Presidents as far back as George H.W. Bush have signed Executive Orders allowing implementation of Agenda 21's programs. In fact, the U.N. has ignored the federal government and through its Agenda 21 International Council of Local Environmental Initiative and made deals with local governments numbering upwards of 600 cities, towns and villages. 

Compounding this is the fact that Agenda 21 is a dull topic, and it becomes understandable how it has been able to fly mostly under the radar since 1992, slowly working its way into our cities and counties. To understand how serious the left is about United Nations rule, look at some of the proponents of Agenda 21: billionaire George Soros has provided millions of dollars to ICLEI. Former Obama czar Van Jones' Green for All and the Tides Foundations' Apollo Alliance are also reportedly ICLEI contributors.

The truth is, Agenda 21 promotes European socialism that by its nature will infringe upon our freedoms and liberties. Most of its vague, lofty sounding phrases cause the average person's eyes to glaze over, making it easier to sneak into our communities. Read more here.
