WONDERING WHAT AGENDA 21 IS ? ( PART 3 )
OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND AGENDA 21
Agenda 21 also appears to have received a significant endorsement from the Obama administration in early June of 2011.
On June 9, 2011, President Obama signed Executive Order 13575, establishing the White House Rural Council (WHRC) and taking control over almost all aspects of the lives of 16 percent of the American people. The media and the public missed it thanks to the focus on the Anthony Weiner scandal.
Section 1 of E.O. 13575 states:
“Sixteen percent of the American population lives in rural counties. Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead. These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation. Though rural communities face numerous challenges, they also present enormous economic potential. The Federal Government has an important role to play in order to expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands.”
Warning bells should have been sounding all across rural America with the use of the phrase “sustainable rural communities”—code words for the true fundamental transformation of America. And the third sentence also makes it quite clear that the government intends to take greater control over “food, fiber, and energy.” The last sentence in Section 1 further clarifies the intent of the order by tying together “access to the capital necessary for economic growth, health care and education.”
COMMENT: Always read these sort of things c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y. If ain’t broken don’t fix it. Is it broken ? WHO is the Federal Gov’t? Its the people’s right..so thus it comes full circle. Actually, as you can see Gov’ts have long ago been overtaken by puppetts and machiavellian bureaucrats right under our very noses. Translation is Gov’t will ultimately take over…no questions asked..or else. People are buying into this and not realizing how it is to be achieved, by then it is too late.
One might expect that the WHRC would be populated by experts in the various fields that might prove helpful to the folks who live and work outside of large urban areas. Well, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will chair the group, but the 25 members appointed to serve on this very influential body are the heads of the executive branch departments, offices, agencies and councils, not leaders in rural development.
Not only was nary a single department in the federal government excluded from the WHRC, but also the administration inserted a wild-card option, leaving a membership spot open to anyone the president and the Agriculture secretary might want to designate to serve on this powerful council.
Within the 25 designated members of the council are some curious ties to Agenda 21 and the structure being built to implement it:
COMMENT: Excuse my sarcasm…but I am not surprised….most of the parties in charge are Urbanistas who probably couldn’t light a fire or live of the land if their life depended on it..they fear rural people. This is being set up to be a bureaucratic nightmare
VALERIE JARRETT: From the White House Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, Jarrett served on the board of an organization called Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC). LISC uses the language of Agenda 21 and ICLEI as their website details their work to build “sustainable communities.”
MELODY BARNES: The head of the Domestic Policy Council, Barnes is a former vice president at the George Soros-funded Center for American Progress.
HILDA SOLIS: Labor Secretary Solis received an award in 2000 for her work on “environmental justice.”
NANCY SUTLEY: White House Council on Environmental Quality chief Sutley served on the board of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Water District and was one of the biggest supporters of low-flow toilets that are now credited with costing more money than expected while causing some nasty problems.
COMMENT: GOOGLE ” VALERIE JARRETT ” One sick vindictive person…said before the Presidential Election that “they”(?) will get even with those that opposed Obama. It is claimed SHE is the President, Obama simply follows what she says.
Is it possible that concerns about E.O. 13575 are just typical anti-big-government paranoia? Consider the “mission and function” of WHRC as laid out by the president:
“The Council shall work across executive departments, agencies, and offices to coordinate development of policy recommendations to promote economic prosperity and quality of life in rural America, and shall coordinate my Administration’s engagement with rural communities.”
“Economic prosperity” and a better “quality of life,” that all sounds fairly innocent and well-intentioned. But continuing deeper into the order, one finds the council is charged with four directives, the first two of which pose the greatest threat of growing federal influence over private property in rural areas.
DIRECTIVE NO. 1: “make recommendations to the President, through the Director of the Domestic Policy Council and the Director of the National Economic Council, on streamlining and leveraging Federal investments in rural areas, where appropriate, to increase the impact of Federal dollars and create economic opportunities to improve the quality of life in rural America.”
The vague language here also sounds non-threatening. There is a hint of a “rural stimulus plan” in the making. Will the federal government start pumping money into farmlands under the guise of “creat[ing] economic opportunities to improve the quality of life in rural America”?
DIRECTIVE NO. 2: “coordinate and increase the effectiveness of Federal engagement with rural stakeholders, including agricultural organizations, small businesses, education and training institutions, health-care providers, telecommunications services providers, research and land grant institutions, law enforcement, State, local, and tribal governments, and nongovernmental organizations regarding the needs of rural America.”
