For the progressive left, subtle changes in language become the language of change. Smart growth, open spaces, smart streets, walkable communities, visioning projects, sustainable communities, environmental justice, multi-use dwellings and high density urban development units are all examples of the language of change driven by the environmental movement, a.k.a Agenda 21. These buzzwords are found in the H-GAC’s sites, your city’s planning department and many other places.
J. Gary Lawrence, Advisor to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development, knew the American public would not cooperate with the UN’s environmental agenda if they knew about it.
“Participating in a UN advocated planning process would likely bring out many…who would actively work to defeat any elected official…undertaking Agenda 21.” ~J. Gary Lawrence, The Future of Agenda 21 in the New Millennium
The often discounted and overlooked final check and balance on our government is the people. So, Mr. Lawrence was right, Texans, if they realized what was transpiring behind their backs and camouflaged by guise of good intentions, would stop them cold in their tracks. Instead, our elected officials are giving away the property rights and personal liberty of the very people they were intended to represent. It’s done in an insidious manner. Incrementally, the bits and pieces have been sold with warm and fuzzy new names so we wouldn’t look too close and catch on.
The environmental agenda has demonstrated its true colors. The remarks about EPA enforcement being akin to crucifixion were not only an exercise in arrogance, but also rang true to the public. Since 1992, when George H.W. Bush signed an agreement in Rio to implement Agenda 21/Sustainable Development in the U.S., the Office of the President has been a cooperative partner in the UN’s Agenda 21. Bill Clinton created the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in 1993 to begin the implementation into the federal agencies through Executive Order 12852.
”The President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) is explicitly charged with recommending a national action plan… on how to achieve sustainable development in the United States, the PCSD was conceived for the implementation of Agenda 21.” – Bill Clinton
Since Agenda 21 will erode the property rights of American citizens, it’s more important than ever to know where your candidate stands on this issue.
