Eric Wargotz joins organization to implement United Nations Agenda 21 sustainable development

Do
Maryland
voters want Eric Wargotz, Al Gore, and the United Nations representing them in the United States Senate?  Should
Maryland
citizens be relegated to a mere subdivision of the United Nations? 

Eric Wargotz frequently states he is the only candidate with a record to run on.  This article examines two crucial decisions and commitments made by Wargotz while a Queen Anne’s
CountyCommissioner.

As a Queen Anne’s County Commissioner Eric Wargotz joined an organization that implements a United Nations sustainable development program known as Agenda 21.  Secondly, Wargotz signed a resolution that states he believes in anthropogenic global warming(AGW) and commits himself to meeting global greenhouse gas reductions.  Wargotz beliefs are aligned with those of global warming front man Al Gore and the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change.

U.N. Agenda 21 Background

Most Americans are unaware that one of the greatest threats to their freedom may be a United Nations program known as Agenda 21. The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division for Sustainable Development created Agenda 21 as a sustainability agenda which is arguably an amalgamation of socialism and extreme environmentalism brushed with anti-American, anti-capitalist overtones. 

A detailed history on sustainable development, definitions, and critical actions can be found here. Section III of the Agenda 21 Plan addresses local community sustainable development.  The Preamble and Chapter 28 discuss how Agenda 21 should be implemented at a local level. The United Nations purposely recommends avoiding the term Agenda 21 and suggests a cleverly named alternative: "smart growth." The United Nations Millennium Papers - Issue 2 (page 5) says this of Agenda 21 and smart growth:

Participating in a UN-advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy-fixated groups and individuals in our society such as the National Rifle Association, citizen militias and some members of Congress. 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 [emphasis added].

Wargotz signs on to U.N. Agenda 21

The Queen Anne’s
CountyCommissioners are
members of the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) - Local Governments for Sustainability, which is an international association of local governments as well as national and regional local government organizations that have made a commitment to sustainable development. The ICLEI mission statement closely resembles that of Agenda 21. In fact, the ICLEI has Special Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council and coordinates local government representation in the UN processes related to Agenda 21. 

I’ve included links to resolutions signed by the Queen Anne’s
CountyCommissioners related to the ICLEI and global warming initiatives.

Resolution 08-22 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Target Resolution

Resolution 08-18 entitled “Smart Growth Resolution

In both cases, scroll to the bottom of the document and you’ll find Wargotz’s signature.  Here’s an excerpt from one resolution:

WHEREAS on July 16 2007 the
CountyCommissioners passed a resolution resolving to participate in the Cities for Climate Protection Campaign sponsored by ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability and participation in this campaign requires implementation of the Five Milestones Model to reduce greenhouse gas and air pollution emissions throughout the community

Agenda 21 implications

Smart growth plans usurp property rights and constitutional rights. Local officials, at the behest of State Government, revise zoning laws to fit into a "smart code" zoning template. A massive reshuffling of property rights ensues. Farmers may lose subdivision rights; conservation land adjacent to population centers may be rezoned into commercial employment centers; and low-density land in small towns is re-designated as growth area and rezoned to accommodate diverse housing including high-density apartments and condominiums.

Finally, a healthy dose of federal- or state-sponsored housing initiatives is embraced to ensure communities are properly balanced. The net effect of these plans is to create highly urbanized population centers throughout otherwise-rural counties, while simultaneously limiting the availability of land for suburban and estate subdivisions, as these are considered an unsustainable waste of land by Agenda 21 disciples.

Most Americans will remain unaware of the implications of smart growth and Agenda 21 until after it is promulgated in their own backyards. Ironically, these plans are more insidious than the Eminent Domain ruling by the Supreme Court in the case of Kelo v City of
New London
. Under Eminent Domain rulings, property owners usually receive compensation for their losses.

Conversely, smart growth municipal plans, required by statute, enable municipalities to change zoning laws and engage in other regulatory actions that devalue property, restrict off-conveyances, and otherwise erode property values without payment of any compensation to the property owner.    

Regardless of political orientation, two indisputable facts remain. Agenda 21 is a direct assault on private property rights and American sovereignty, and it is coming to a neighborhood near you.  

Republican voters need not look any further than Eric Wargotz’s record on this issue.  Ask yourself one simple question.  Do you want Eric Wargotz, Al Gore, and the United Nations representing you in the United States Senate?

    Great article! And as we read this the Senate is taking under consideration the Wildlands Corridor Conservation Act which if passed just adds yet another insidious dimension to what you are portraying here.

    Thank you for the heads up in regards to Eric, but people should be forewarned that BOTH the RNC and DNC are colluding to foist A21 upon us. This is why that despite their HUGE meeting held May 3rd-14th in NYC for purposes of discussing "The 4th Implementation Cycle", not one word was uttered to the public. Present were 2,146 NGOs and the 179 signatory nations. (the U.S. is of course among them). This event made the G20 summit look like a little social gathering at Grandma's house...yet not a peep on the News.

    Look up Sustainable Development/Agenda 21 and Rex 84

    This is real. It also calls for worldwide de-population down to as little as 500,000 million people. (Hence death panels in hc bill. )They are using the environmental causes to push this agenda.

    Evil, pure evil is going on.

  • Mamasan 4 years ago

    I am still wrapping my fingers around this! As Chance put it, pure evil! Is Wargotz a Democratic plant with the motivation to make the Republican Candidates spend $? Why does Wargotz keep calling himself a conservative? I guess he has succumbed to the culture of the folks he has embedded himself with...he certainly is confused as to what he wants to be which tells me to cast my vote elsewhere...

    Wargotz is one of two very good Conservative candidates in this race. I live in the same county. He doesn't support any such thng. So as a Commissioner he signs as energy-saving resolution with his 4 dem colleagues to save tax-payer dollars through energy efficiency - no big deal - just watching out for us. Love how some of you like to try to twist his record and the facts. He has signed and pledged AFP (Americans For Prosperity) anti-cap and trade petition and others. Try telling the whole story. Including disclosing your affiliation with a different primary candidate. I think that is fair and reasonable so that your audience does understand your biased point of view against Dr. Wargotz.

    Thank you for bringing this information to light. I always wondered what smart growth actually meant. Your well researched article will help the voters of Maryland make an informed choice about who the best candidate is for the Republican nomination for US Senate. I'll choose the true conservative choice. Keep up the good work, Scott.

    First off, there is nothing binding about this resolution. Dr. Wargotz signed this in an effort to reduce costs to the citizens of QAC. He has proven time and time again that he is a fiscal conservative....eliminated 'middle management', reduced the size of government, cut taxes, cut QAC's budget by $11.5 million.
    Yes, he did increase the recordation fee (one of the lowest in the state) by 50% but that only affects new property transfers and was implemented to fund a new courthouse replacing the oldest operating courthouse in the state.
    QAC is one of the only counties in MD to close its books on 2009 IN THE BLACK!!
    A job well done Dr. Wargotz. Sir, you have earned my vote.

    I am currently running for the Maryland House of Delegates, District 11. When I heard about this, I was dismayed, so I decided to talk to Eric Wargotz directly and ask him about his stance. He stated to me that he is NOT a member of ICLEI and DOES NOT support UN's proposition 21. If you want, you can call him or write to him directly. His website is www.wargotz.com. My campaign website is www.votehalphen.com and needless to say, I do not support this organization nor Prop. 21.
