SAF CONDEMNS TEXAS LAW PROF’S CLAIM THAT
OH SCHOOL SHOOTING IS EXERCISE OF 2A’
BELLEVUE, WA – The suggestion by a University of Texas law professor that Monday’s deadly school shooting in Ohio was a “typical exercise of the Second Amendment” is an outrage, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.Calvin Johnson teaches law at UT in Austin, and his comments appeared in an e-mail that was exposed by a reporter for the Washington Free Beacon. The story also revealed that Johnson defended the City of Chicago’s handgun ban, which SAF successfully challenged before the U.S. Supreme Court in McDonald v. City of Chicago. Prof. Johnson has also suggested that it is “quite reasonable” to dismiss James Madison’s motivations for including a right to keep and bear arms in the Bill of Rights as “historical trivia.”"To contend that Monday’s tragic school shooting is typical behavior for citizens exercising their rights under the Second Amendment is simply outrageous,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “What is even more alarming is that this fellow actually teaches law at an American university.”Prof. Johnson reportedly sent a note to the Washington Free Beacon that stated, “The original meaning of the second amendment was to form a better militia. Under original meaning, guns fit into militias, [sic] and militias are subject to Presidential orders. Disobey the order and you can be shot. That is the real second amendment. The fake one allows high school adolescents to have easy access to the opportunity to work out their fantasies. That is bad originalism.”"Someone with so little understanding of a major tenet of the Constitution should not be in front of a classroom,” Gottlieb observed. “If he can so deliberately distort the historic background of the Second Amendment, what else is he distorting to his students?”Evidently,” he added, “Prof. Johnson is like so many other gun prohibitionists who habitually politicize and exploit tragedies to further an anti-gun agenda. We are stunned at Johnson’s callousness. Killing innocent people is no more an exercise of the Second Amendment than is Prof. Johnson’s abuse of his First Amendment right to engage in what amounts to scholarly malpractice. A man with his perspective should no more be teaching basket weaving than legal doctrine.”
The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control. In addition to the landmark McDonald v. Chicago Supreme Court Case, SAF has previously funded successful firearms-related suits against the cities of Los Angeles; New Haven, CT; New Orleans; Chicago and San Francisco on behalf of American gun owners, a lawsuit against the cities suing gun makers and numerous amicus briefs holding the Second Amendment as an individual right.
Right to Keep and Bear Arms Week. 1-1-224, M.C.A. Written and pushed by MSSA, this law establishes the first week of March as an official period for Montanans to celebrate their cherished right to keep and bear arms.
In 1991 MSSA got a bill passed setting aside the first week of March as the official week in Montana to celebrate our cherished Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Here’s what the Montana law actually says:
1-1-224. Observance of right to keep and bear arms. The week beginning the first Monday in March is an official week of observance to commemorate Montana’s valued heritage of the right of each person to keep and bear arms in the defense of his home, person, or property or in aid of civil power.
During this week, all Montanans are urged to reflect on their right to keep and bear arms and to celebrate this right in lawful ways.
So, if you wanted reason to plan a celebration, here it is. If you have interesting ideas about what you will do in your community, let me know and I’ll recirculate them to the MSSA e-list.
Also, if you’re interested and as a bonus, I’ll paste below the story about how this happened (one of the several “Legislative Tales” from my book Gun Laws of Montana – commercial teaser).

Subject: GOA Alert: Where Does Romney Stand Today on the Second Amendment
This is a very concise overview regarding the encroachment of our rights as outlined in Agenda 21.
Unfortunately the majority of Americans are totally unaware of this dastardly movement. Private property owners should be especially aware of Agenda 21!!!! For those of you in the know, this is good reference material…..
Very lengthy, but WOW!!! Become familiar with it!!
Agenda 21 is too big, too complicated to condense into a couple of paragraphs. I have taken copious notes and reduced it all to the following information, and am sending under separate email the explosive PDF file on the APA war against Agenda21 opposition – it is well laid out, sophisticated, comprehensive, well funded and national in scope. To date I do not believe there is a single organization in the country that has assumed a counterpart position with even remotely similar clarity of purpose and modeling. The information below is so vital, so urgent, so massive it should be a major part of ANY candidate’s campaign – as a means of educating the public and reflecting a serious dedication to Constitutional principles and laws.
You may share this, but I would ask that I be given credit for authoring this information whenever and wherever it is used.
I have many months of research into this topic. This can be regarded as one of my “white papers” with others forthcoming. I am willing to give presentations and/or training on this topic, be it to candidates, current legislators, patriot or political groups.
An overview by
February 22, 2012
What is Agenda 21? It is a United Nation’s program presented
and approved in Rio in 1992. At that time American conservatives laughed it off.
“This is too crazy,” they said. “Impossible. It will never happen. Not here!”
Well, it is happening. It is happening here and it is happening now. Agenda 21
is a totalitarian comprehensive environmental program that, when fully
implemented, will direct where you live, how much water you can use, and how, when and
where you can travel.
Agenda 21 is being marketed as a worldwide effort to ensure that all human
beings will have access to adequate housing, health care, water and food. Of
course this will require a massive redistribution of wealth from prosperous
countries to poorer countries. Predictably, capitalistic countries, like the
United States, will of necessity suffer seriously lowered standards of
It’s noteworthy that Presidents George H. Bush,
Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama, through Executive Orders, have signed onto
Agenda 21. Hundreds more governors, mayors, and county commissioners have also signed on. There
presently over 600 cities, counties and states in America signed on to Agenda 21.
Agenda 21 and related programs will eliminate many things we hold dear. These have been declared
“unsustainable” and will be abolished. Here are some of them:
- All private property rights (property ownership)[no one will be allowed to own land, houses or other
- All forms of irrigation, pesticides & commercial fertilizer
- Livestock production and most meat consumption [lab produced ‘meat’ currently in development in Europe – from stem cells].
- Privately owned vehicles and personal travel [no individually owned autos]
- Use of fossil fuels for power generation or mechanized travel
- Single family homes [everyone will have to
live in stack-and-pack hi-rise condos called 'sustainable
communities' – multi-use high rises in each city – most of which already have them and are building more]
- Most forms of mineral extraction and timber harvesting
- Human population must be reduced to fewer than 1 billion people
[The current 6 billion population to be reduced
to 500 million, i.e. the world must be DEPOPULATED! – one can only wonder
just how the powers behind this plan to decrease the population by 5/6th ] – Obamacare factors into the US depopulation,
from denial of treatment, birth control and abortions.
It’s not coming from Washington D.C. or state legislatures for the most part.
It is seeping in through local city and county governments.
Agenda 21 brings with it stealthy code words, comforting words such as
“smart growth,” “social justice,” “bio-diversity,” and “sustained development.”
You will hear them often and find them in abundance in most actions of city/town governments.
Translated these terms effectively mean total environmental
dictatorship and the elevation of the pagan practice of the worship of Mother Earth. Not a
179 countries, including the United
States, initially signed on to the Agenda in 1992. Many more
have joined since then. Check out your own state/city – chances are that it is already
firmly entrenched in Agenda 21. http://www.iclei.org/index.php?id=11454
The ICLEI is the governing body under the United Nations – and the above link lists ALL participating countries
and cities therein – you will be shocked to see the LONG list of US cities – it is staggering, just
staggering and mind boggling, shocking, dismaying and downright scary.
Agenda 21 is designed to control every aspect of human life on every
square inch of planet earth. As a biblical worldview dims in the world,
man falls to the bottom of the food chain.
If Agenda 21 succeeds (and it is) animals will become more important than man as will
plants and trees. We can already see ample evidence of this process in motion
today. Agenda 21’s real message is: “Man is the problem. Nature must be
preserved and take precedence. Mother Earth must not be scratched.“
Agenda 21 is just another attempt by man to recreate heaven on earth. David
Chilton, in his insightful book Paradise Restored, presents an
important historical dynamic. Chilton submits that man, ever since he was
expelled from Eden, has tried to get back in. Each time he tries, he creates
another hell on earth. Agenda 21 will be no different.
Many socialistic, communistic, and liberal organizations and international
leaders are behind Agenda 21 and its related programs, most notably Bilderberg. It will take dedication
of time and effort on our part to truly understand all the implications of this
pervasive program. The investment of time and effort will be worth it – equal to basic survival.
These are not legal or dictionary definitions, but short explanations used to describe words as they are used within the Agenda 21 context.
Bill of Rights: US Constitutional rights that reflect natural law , deemed unalienable- we are born with these rights, they cannot be taken away. Conversely, Human Rights are granted to people under the Declaration of Human Rights. Under this system the government can take these rights away to advance a centrally determined “common good”.
Biodiversity: The dictionary defines it as a variety of plants and animals in their native environments/habitats. It is used by globalists to promote fear around extinction of species so that they can activate the Endangered Species Act which has yet to have a single success! It is used as a weapon to abolish private property. (prime example of the destruction of the Imperial Valley in California, where water was turned off to the farmlands and ranches, turning the entire area into a dustbowl, with massive loss of jobs, land, wealth – in the name of a tiny fish in the River Delta deemed endangered)
Collectivism: Political philosophy where a small group determines the “greater good” for the masses. While it could take the form of communism, fascism, socialism, etc, the common denominator is control over the population. Note: The UN and Bilderberg work in concert to achieve ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT – a goal long sought since early on in the 20th century.
Commerce Clause: The Constitution provides that the federal government has power over commerce between states, but this power has been distorted and expanded beyond its original intention. The federal government uses this as an excuse to regulate resources, businesses and everything else.
Consensus: Facilitators will use the consensus process to reach a predetermined outcome. Minority positions are ignored in consensus. This is also used in education as more value is placed on reaching consensus than objective data. Investigation of current text books and teaching plans will show a massive change in the content of books and teaching methods – gearing today’s kids expect AND accept the new world order, and believing that America is evil.
Corridors: Areas targeted for control. This word applies to strips of land that interconnect with Wildlands, where human presence and resource extraction are not allowed. This word is also used in relation to transportation routes and power grids as well. (see NW examples below)
Councils: These organizations, comprised of insiders and stakeholders, are being used to usurp the power of local governments.
Democracy: Mob rule, or majority rule. We live in a Republic that is based in protecting individuals’ rights. Imagine if a lynch mob (the majority) wanted to hang you (the individual). Democracy contrasts with the American system, intended to operate as a Republic, with limited government powers and with the protection of individuals’ Unalienable Rights through a system of due process.
Endangered Species Act: This Act was based on a United Nations model and implemented through international treaties. It is a tool collectivists use to take over land and resources in pursuit of the abolition of private property. Note: NUMEROUS cases exist in the US where land has been declared off limits for human use and enjoyment – often from expanding the boundaries around national parks and forests, rivers and lakes etc.
Enumerated Powers: Power given to the congress in Article1, Section 8 of the Constitution, that are further limited by the Bill of Rights.
Equal Justice: Equal Justice is a respect for independence and unalienable rights of the individual and general tolerance for individuality. Equal justice puts a checkmate on mob rule.
Fabianism: Constant, slow change in government. i.e. Incrementalism.
Facilitators: Paid workers who use peer pressure and psychological manipulation to obtain consensus. (perfect example is a training manual produced by the APA *American Planning Assn)
Forfeiture: VIDEO (3 min) about how government can take your personal property.
Gaia: Pagan religion of nature worship honoring Mother Earth. Today, Gaia represents a philosophy that places nature above humans consistent with the Action Plan of Agenda 21. Agenda 21 is designed and used as a means to an end (depopulation and slavery). the Gaia philosophy is predicated on a “higher purpose” – to save nature at all costs.
Governance: To rule, control and manipulate America was based on the principals of a government of protection. G. Edward Griffin suggests we should not even use the word government, but a Protectorate instead.
Green: While we are all dependent upon and concerned about the environment, the environment has been elevated to a status above humans, under the banner of being “green”.
Gerrymander: Division of areas to give special advantages to certain groups; it is a mechanism to adjust Congressional boundaries to meet the ruling political parties’ objectives. Illegal immigration is a symptom of this type of social and political engineering occurring prior to every election season.
Human Rights: Those rights granted by men and capable of being withdrawn by men as outlined in the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. (Article 29 “These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.” This means ‘Human Rights’ can be taken away).
ICLEI:The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (also called Local Governments for Sustainability) is a U.N. accredited Non Governmental Organization (NGO). It implements the Action Plan of Agenda 21 Sustainable Development. Cities pay dues in order to obtain direction from ICLEI in establishing local policy and law. It is a violation of Article 1, Section 10 of the US Constitution which prohibits States and their subdivisions from entering alliances with foreign operatives. ICLEI is also offering ‘grants’ to lure communities and states into implementing one of many of their ‘sustainable’ programs.
Insiders: A person in power who has access to confidential information and influences decisions, unbeknownst to the vast majority of citizens.
Individualism: The philosophy that the interests of the individual are, or ought to be, paramount. Collectivism is its opposite.
Inalienable Rights: Rights that are granted by the government. What is given can also be taken away. The U.N.’s Declaration of Human Rights is a system of of inalienable rights.
Unalienable Rights: Rights that we are born with. They may not be taken away by government. “That all men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” This political recognition is why the Declaration of Independence is regarded as humanity’s greatest achievement.
NGO’s: Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are accredited by the U.N. for purposes of implementing Agenda 21. They are well funded by governments. tax free foundations, corporations and individuals.
Outcome Based Education: Method of teaching wherein the student must be able to perform according to prescribed standards, and real knowledge and critical thinking are discounted if not all-together ignored. Generally the standards are lowered to the lowest common denominator, hence more than 50% suffer from lack of adequate education.
Public- Private Partnerships (PPP): Corporations or other private entities like foundations, NGO’s, associations, etc that pair with government to enforce rules and policies that benefit the money partner (corporation) or government objectives. Public- Private Partnership is the re-invention of Mussolini’s system of economic fascism.
Private Property: Private property is the relationship between a person and something wherein the owner determines the use and enjoyment of the thing. Private property includes land, personal possessions and intellectual property. Private property also includes one’s own person, body and mind, which is why the protection of property rights are so important. All such rights are actively threatened at the present.
Land ownership is the primary source of freedom and wealth! And serves as the basis of the American Dream – growing ever more extinct!
Quality of Life: This phrase is frequently used in propaganda and official documents to sugar coat the underlying policies and intentions. This is evident in most of the marketing materials supporting Agenda 21.
Regions: Political regions are established in order to replace existing political boundaries thus destroying the power of local governments. A water control agency would be an example of this. Regionalizing resources to remove power from local authorities is the way Russia was Sovietized.
Republic: A system of government that operates by rule of law and exists to protect individual rights. The Republic of the United States has a democratically elected representative government, but this does not make it a democracy.
Smart Growth: Herding people into cities and off rural land, for the purpose of controlling human action. Building up (high-rises), not out, and mixed-use buildings with stores on the ground floor with living spaces above exist within a walkable community. The objective is for people to stay within a small area in order to be easily controlled while the animals roam freely everywhere else.
Stakeholders: A person entrusted with the stakes of bettors. Stakeholders are shadowy entities that have influence and are referenced in many documents. Stakeholders in this new political context are those who combine efforts to drive a stake into the heart of private property.
Sustainable Development: The U.N. document called Agenda 21 lays the blueprint for advancing Sustainable Development. This is a euphemism for depopulation and control. The basis of the design is the “Three E’ program: “Equity”- using sociology and the law to create a global system of governance; “Economy”- meaning redistribution between nations and converting from free enterprise to Public- Private Partnership; and “Environment”- meaning nature above man.
Tenth Amendment: This is the key to the undoing of Agenda 21- the recognition of States’ rights and State sovereignty: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, not prohibited to it by the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Wildlands: The counterpart to Smart Growth, it is designed to remove people from the land, using the excuse of “sustaining” wildlife; the plan is to remove people and eliminate resource extraction from over 50% of America’s landscape.

AGENDA 21 – IT’S ALL ABOUT COMMUNITARIANISM AND BEST YOU BEWARE NOW
- Posted by Karen S on September 2, 2011 at 7:49pm
I send this information which is valid all over the country and I urge, URGE each person reading this to go to their local City Government or Council and start asking questions. You will likely find that your community is heavily into Agenda 21 – and you need to know and understand just how you and your community are now at risk.
UN Local Agenda 21 – The Smoking Cannon
Many more “normal” people are talking and writing about the global government these days. So many more people are actually exposing the global government’s matrix that our ACL research has been elevated from “conspiracy theory” to necessary and vital information. The Big Plan for global Utopia is finally coming out into the open, because People are asking the right questions.
I’m not talking about the movie, “The Matrix,” although it was based in the Hegelian dialectic and matrix101 links directly to our antithesis. I’m not referring to a secret plan handed out at the Bilderberg or Club of Rome, although evidence shows elite groups participated in the creation of the NWO. I’m not talking about Bible prophecy, and I’m not talking about Luciferian Enlightenment or the secret British-Masonic-Zionist plan to make a better world either, although some communitarian teachers do admit they worship at the alter of Satan.
I am talking about the published plan to build a One World Bureaucracy. It’s the blueprint for Sustainable Development handed out at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. It does exist and it’s completely verifiable, as more and more people will now admit. They have to.
United Nations Local Agenda 21 Programme for Sustainable Development is the “smoking gun” for the New World Order. Adopted by all member nations in 1992, this is the model for redesigning a communitarian world. If you’re like a lot of people who sense something is very wrong, if you’re looking for concrete, irrefutable evidence for the New World Order in your neighborhood, nothing comes close to asking your local officials about Local Agenda 21 (LA21).
Don’t just use the Internet to find your plan, although many of our LA21 plans and their affiliate agencies are available online. Exercise your authentic power. Call or stop by your local City Hall. Meet face-to-face with your elected public officials. Ask to review all local planning actions that come under UN guidelines for Sustainable Development (SD). Ask to review any local agreements with ICCLEI.
The existence of a master plan for global government can almost be verified in one call to our City or County Clerk. Asking whether there has been anything locally adopted or resolved that promotes Sustainable Development is not a hard question anymore. Even people outside government groups have heard this new term by now. Most people think it’s a good thing because they believe it arose naturally. It has a huge following. Hell, everything is going “sustainable” now. >From agriculture to industry to lifestyles to education, the whole world is promoting sustainability.
So, if every body’s doing it, it must be a good thing, right? What’s the big deal?
Well, first of all, if sustainability really just meant a benign way of healing the planet from corporate poisoning, it would not include so many laws that govern common people’s lives. There is nothing benign about Sustainable Development to the common man. SD is a set of global community laws that supplant individual liberty, formally maintained within national, state and local property and privacy laws.
Second of all, communitarian laws always “balance” the rights of the individual against the community; therefore SD only protects the global community government from the common man. Every nation in the world is experiencing a “wrenching transformation” of national laws into compliance with international SD law. LA21 could also be called “No Nation Left Behind.”
American homeowners are almost totally clueless as to why so much of the Stimulus Package is directed into upgrades that allow the government to monitor and control them inside their homes. What kind of system puts monitors on garbage trucks so that the trucks can scan our garbage cans in order to spot the cans that have recyclable items in the wrong cans? What kind of a system establishes neighborhood groups who monitor their neighbors for SD compliance and report infractions of new community biased regulations? What kind of a system puts RFID trackers in garments and Retinal Scans in Driver’s Licenses? What kind of a system builds a huge database of every one’s most private and personal information?
Think you know what your nation stands for? Still believe that SD is a local solution written by locals for a local purpose? Prove it. Go ahead. Stop reading this. Pick up a phone right now and call your City Clerk. Ask to review and copy anything having to do with U.N. Local Agenda 21 or Sustainable Development.
Because there are so many local programs implementing global SD, you will probably be told your request is “too broad.” So, okay, narrow your focus. This means get specific.
Ask your public servant (who works for you) which city and county agencies have already adopted Sustainable Development. After the usual “Why do you need this information?” which you do not have to answer with anything but a smile, the honest answer will likely be, “all of them.” If there’s any lingering doubt about how prevalent SD is in your home town, read and copy every local agency’s Mission Statement.
How do you tie Sustainable Development to the United Nations if your local government claims their Sustainable Development has no connection to U.N. Local Agenda 21? Ask them to give you a clear and legal definition for Sustainable Development. They have no choice but to waffle or cite the 1987 United Nations Bruntland Commission’s “official” definition for Sustainable Development http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2009/envdev1026.doc.htm.
You’ll see the terms for engagement very quickly. Once you’ve started, be prepared for the worst a TV trained government agent can throw at you. If you have property or own a local business, you are definitely taking risks. The risk is worth it though, since the ultimate price we’ll all pay is what happens to private property and privacy under the plan; it’s completely abolished.
And, since all U.S. constitutional law is based in private property rights, any plan to abolish private property is treason, pure and simple. They know this too.
How much can you find out about how far down the LA21 road your neighborhood has gone? This could be a real adventure if you took it on. Nothing incites the senses like following the path of your enemies into your own home. This is a global war. The real fight is over our land, our people and all our resources. It’s being fought every day on all our home fronts, from London to Kenny Lake, Alaska.
There are several other key terms to look for: livability, quality of life, common good, vision for the future, community values, to name just a few. When Americans find unfamiliar (new) terms used in any U.S. government document, because of our Federal (F.O.I.A.) and State Public Disclosure laws, we can request a clear, legal definition of the word or phrase. We can read and copy every government agent’s documents related to the use of the term too, from hand scribbled notes to polished propaganda. This is what real transparency in government means. Many other Western nations have similar laws.
If the idea of a war is too hard to accept, think of it as a fishing expedition. Stay quiet and calm so you don’t scare the fish away. Gently remove the hook and throw back all the small fish you catch, or use them as bait. Bide your time, wait for the granddaddy of all fish to smell the blood. This breed of fish devours its own, like a shark, so when you have the Big One on the hook, you’ve hooked them all on one line.
Who wants to show Americans and the rest of the world the extent of our new global laws, global-to-local development plans, and all our local partnerships with global associations (and funding). They may be openly revising their national constitutions in South America and the EU under supremacy of communitarian law, but in most Western free and open “democracies,” LA21 plans are anything but open.
For those who need to know more, Sustainable Development is based in communitarianism (see above and below definition). This philosophy drives every aspect of the emerging supra-national system. If you understand the theory, you’ll understand the new tactics. Once you’ve verified for yourself that LA21 plans exist for your area, do a little Internet search for the term “communitarianism.” The results will amaze you.
Political and social philosophy that emphasizes the importance of community in the functioning of political life, in the analysis and evaluation of political institutions, and in understanding human identity and well-being. It was developed in the 1980s and ’90s in explicit opposition to the theoretical liberalism of thinkers such as John Rawls. According to communitarians, liberalism relies on a conception of the individual that is unrealistically atomistic and abstract; it also places too much importance on individual values such as freedom and autonomy. Its chief representatives include Amitai Etzioni, Michael Sandel, and Charles Taylor. See also collectivism.
This is truly sickening!

“Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice.” From the report from the 1976 UN’s Habitat I Conference.
What is not sustainable?
Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paved and tarred roads, logging activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.” FROM: UN’s Biodiversity Assessment Report.
Hide Agenda 21’s UN roots from the people
“Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy- fixated groups and individuals in our society… This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.” J. Gary Lawrence, advisor to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development.
Who is behind it? (start with Bilderberg and George Soros, then add in the UN and all those listed below)
ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (formally, International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). Communities pay ICLEI dues to provide “local” community plans, software, training, etc. Additional groups include American Planning Council (the same group that is now instituting a national training program to overcome objections to A21 – a well funded, sophisticated manual to train people around the US to battle for and institute A21), The Renaissance Planning Group, International City/ County Management Group, aided by US Mayors Conference, National Governors Association, National League of Cities, National Association of County Administrators and many more private organizations and official government agencies. Foundation and government grants drive the process.
NOTE: Cities sign on to get grants – their greed and avarice overshadowing the massive strings attached, and the dire consequences to all communities. Money talks, BW walks and these people have plenty of money to throw at towns and cities across America and the world -
In my humble opinion, THIS is the greatest threat to this nation and it encroaches from within – at community levels – by pleasant sounding names that spell danger and destruction to the American way of life – and that means home ownership, business ownership, owning land and cattle, farming or personal gardens, living life as YOU choose – all GONE.
There can’t be enough written about AGenda 21 or Project 60, not nearly enough and EVERY CANDIDATE for state or national office should be trained in and propel this issue to the forefront of their campaign strategies.
Currently there is a big land grab in the works to supposedly expand the Olympic National park around the the Quinault area as well as several other spots on the Olympic Peninsula. In Oregon – Bandon Marsh Wildlife Refuge. This is a wholesale trampling of individual rights focused on the Coquille River near Bandon!
There are several websites with information concerning this crime against hard working Americans – a $900 Million Dollar Agenda 21-ICLEI land grab.
You won’t know it’s happening until many people have had their homes stolen right out from under them.
I figured I’d get the word out on this (Olympic National Park) attempt to buy up 210,000 acres . The website opposing all this is at http://www.workingwildolympics.com/ .
Also you can go to http://www.muddyexp.com/index2.html for more details.
We must help these people get the word out about this despicable abuse of power if Obama completes this theft of homes/land from hard working Americans, who among us will be next, and where?
If this is happening in a remote part of Washington it is happening in remote areas in other States as well.
This is Agenda 21 on the rise – now.
I urge you to check out the UN maps for Agenda 21(see above links) – in reference to WA but also to each state. You will notice that there is very little land designated for human use in most of the West.
[TWG Note: obama and his evil regime continue to stick their middle fingers into the faces of our military, and many of our military members and Veterans groups STILL stand with him, slappng palms and grinning at each other. obama and his regime continue to parade our Veterans and military members whenever he wants a good photo op, then chooses them FIRST on the chopping block when he wants to threaten the rest of America into supporting his dirty schemes. MAKES ME SICK. When will people WAKE UP???]
(hat tip James W for the forward. Thanks James!]
The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.
The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention.
The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the Pentagon’s $487 billion cut in spending. It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by 2017……..
[TWG Note: They forgot to mention all the taxpayer funding that goes in to these "Luxury" vehicles, and the FACT that they require COAL POWERED CHARGING STATIONS. The ecoterrorists wouldn't dare open their glassy little eyes to that, now would they?]
Eric Bolling (Fox Business Channel’s Follow the Money) test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors.
For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine. Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9 gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh batery is approximately 270 miles. It will take you 4 1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours.
In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph. According to General Motors, the Volt battery hold 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh. 16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery.
Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine only that gets 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile. The gasoline powered car cost about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000.
So Obama wants us to pay 3 times as much for a car that costs more that 7 times as much to run and takes 3 times as long to drive across country.
Home values have plummeted, health insurance premiums have increased, gas has gone through the roof, the number of Americans living in poverty is exponentially increasing and the national debt has increased by a whopping four and half trillion dollars.
The following are 18 statistics that prove that the economy has not improved since Barack Obama became the president of the United States . . .
#1 Today there are 88 million working age Americans that are not employed and that are not looking for employment. That is an all-time record high.
#2 When Barack Obama was elected, the percentage of unemployed Americans that had been out of work for more than 52 weeks was less than 15%. Today, it is above 30%.
#3 There are 1.2 million fewer jobs in America today than there were when Barack Obama was inaugurated.
#4 When Barack Obama first took office, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was approximately 2.6 million. Today, that number is sitting at 5.6 million.
#5 The average duration of unemployment in the United States is hovering close to an all-time record high.
#6 During the Obama administration, worker health insurance costs have risen by 23 percent.
#7 Since Barack Obama has been president, the average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States has increased by 90 percent.
#8 Since Barack Obama has been president, home values in the United States have declined by another 13 percent.
#9 Under Barack Obama, new home sales in the U.S. set a brand new all-time record low in 2009, they set a brand new all-time record low again in 2010, and they set a brand new all-time record low once again during 2011.
#10 Since Barack Obama took office, the number of Americans living in poverty has risen by more than 6 million.
#11 Since Barack Obama entered the White House, the number of Americans on food stamps has increased from 32 million to 46 million.
#12 The amount of money that the federal government gives directly to Americans has increased by 32 percent since Barack Obama entered the White House.
#13 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of Americans living in “extreme poverty” is now sitting at an all-time high.
#14 When Barack Obama first took office, an ounce of gold was going for about $850. Today an ounce of gold costs more than $1700 an ounce.
#15 Since Barack Obama became president, the size of the U.S. national debt has increased by 44 percent.
#16 During Barack Obama’s first two years in office, the U.S. government added more to the U.S. national debt than the first 100 U.S. Congresses combined.
#17 During the Obama administration, the U.S. government has accumulated more debt than it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that Bill Clinton took office.
#18 The U.S. national debt has been increasing by an average of more than 4 billion dollars per day since the beginning of the Obama administration.
When evaluating the health of the American economy, short-term economic numbers don’t tell the whole story. Sometimes they go up and sometimes they do down.
Instead, the key is to look at the long-term balance sheet numbers. When you do that, it quickly becomes apparent how appalling our economic decline has been.
The size of federal government debt is exploding, state and local governments all over the country are drowning in debt, our collective national wealth is decreasing and our ability to produce new wealth is also being reduced as our economic infrastructure is systematically gutted.
Obama is not the only one to blame. The truth is that the Federal Reserve has much more power over the economy than Obama does. But the American people are constantly told that the Federal Reserve is “not political” and that we should not “criticize” the Fed.
Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama have all greatly contributed to the mess that we are in, but they are not solely responsible for it.
Nevertheless, the outcome of the presidential election in November will be heavily influenced by how the U.S. economy performs during the rest of 2012.
Until next time . . . Wake Up America!

Already facing inquiries from the House Committee on Oversight and Government reform concerning possible perjury revolving around the Fast and Furious fiasco, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano appears to be in deeper trouble in light of a report stating that her agency lied to Congress about alleged spying on citizens who have not been charged with crimes.
Secret documents recently published by The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) show that Homeland Security officials misled Congress when they claimed that the agency had not contracted with any entity to monitor social networking sites for signs of citizen discontent with government policy.
The documents show that DHS did, indeed, enter into a contractual agreement with General Dynamics to monitor the Internet for signs of opposition to policies of the Obama Administration:
