ARE AGENDA 21 AND ICLEI SECURITY THREATS TO AMERICA?
In addition to the potential for restricting personal property rights and removing basic freedoms to choose how and where one lives, Agenda 21 and ICLEI may also present a significant security risk to America.
COMMENT: Here it gets VERY interesting
Charles Winkler, a retired Defense Department analyst who worked as a specialist in Russia and the Middle East, has studied ICLEI and Agenda 21. In November 2011, Winkler publicly discussed the potential national security problems with ICLEI’s presence in America.
At one meeting in Virginia, Winkler offered some surprising information about one high-ranking ICLEI representative, regional officer Jie “Megan” Wu:
•Wu, who as recently as last summer was leading seminars for ICLEI, has a history as an official for the People’s Republic of China, an official member of the Chinese delegation dealing with foreigners in multi-lateral negotiations;
•she studied in a university that was subordinate to the People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and where, according to Winkler, linguists are trained for government service;
•she appeared to still be a citizen of China and trained in dealing with foreigners by a state school; and
•at one point, Wu, an apparent Chinese national, was charged with overseeing a territory for ICLEI from Georgia up to Maine and inland.
Winkler explained at the meeting that a retired officer for the Russian GRU (Moscow’s large foreign military intelligence operation) told him that any Chinese national trained in “dealing with foreigners” has a counter-intelligence association or an official link back to the government.
Winkler says that his immediate concern with Wu is related to national security—specifically: Why does ICLEI have a representative for the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast region that is a citizen of China and one that may be trained in counter-intelligence?
COMMENT: Recall the organization International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI).
As Mr . Winkler states Ms. Wu has all the indications/qualifications of a “spy” loyal to a foreign power. Is this intentional or sloppy on the part of those running ICLEI. Or, as I suspect…ICLEI will be party to information collected and tabulated by various Local Gov’ts all over the world. ie For Example…City of Richmond…..Roberts Bank Superport…YVR’s confidential info etc. etc, is accessible to a foreign headquarters?
Some claim Winkler is paranoid. But his worries about a Chinese national acting as the main representative for ICLEI and having access to potentially sensitive information about hundreds of Defense locations do not seem far-fetched when one considers:
•The Defense Department operates at least 200 facilities within the territory once covered by Ms. Wu (and still covered by ICLEI);
•ICLEI gathers data on utilities, ports, rail and airport operations, as well as planning for additional development of these areas; and
•the information is compiled locally and sent to ICLEI’s foreign headquarters.
Winkler also reports that within the past two months, Russia arrested a Chinese national trying to get secret government documents on missile systems while posing as an interpreter—just as Wu was doing.
Combine this and the reality that all of ICLEI’s data is sent to the group’s world headquarters with the fact that nobody in our government seems to know who has access to all of the potentially sensitive intelligence being gathered, and security officials in America have legitimate serious concerns about ICLEI.
COMMENT: Once any information leaves a secured depository….no one can tell WHO is accesing it. For all we know they may unwittingly be accessed by terrorists….perhaps another Cyber War….STUXNET ?
Curiously, in June 2011, Wu was replaced by a new regional director named Eli Yewdall. Yewdall’s Internet-accessible history shows ties to far-Left groups such as Climate Justice and various other “direct action” climate movement organizations. He has also worked as a local organizer in New York and was arrested in a protest at the IRS. As a student in 2002 he declared that the United Nations is the “only democratic body in existence.”
COMMENT: Again , warning sign of radical revolutionaries, precursors to Communism.
IS THE TIDE TURNING AGAINST AGENDA 21 AND ICLEI?
In recent months, citizen groups across the country have organized and become involved in the removal of towns and cities from membership in ICLEI. There are several Facebook groups working to illuminate the real purpose of Agenda 21 and ICLEI, including “Wake Up Call to Agenda 21,” “Resist UN Agenda 21” and “Stopping UN Agenda 21”; plus, many city and county Facebook groups have dedicated themselves to dismantling ICLEI’s substantial network.
COMMENT: So…this is a good sign if the resistance grows … but will Canadians wake up ?
While the awareness of Agenda 21 seems to have increased significantly in the past year, there is still much work to be done by those interested in blocking the redistributive social-and environmental-justice intentions embedded in both Agenda 21 and ICLEI.
COMMENT: Again read between the lines…disguising handcuffs as fashionable ” jewelry ” ?.
The fight for property rights will continue this summer when advocates for Agenda 21, ICLEI and various global governance schemes will gather to mark the 20th anniversary of the initial announcement of this plan to create a global government through the subterfuge of environmentalism. The event is seeking “to secure renewed political commitment for sustainable development, assess the progress to date and the remaining gaps in the implementation of the outcomes of the major summits on sustainable development, and address new and emerging challenges.”
Without the continued vigilance of freedom-loving Americans, this movement threatens to overwhelm private property rights that our Founders knew are central to our liberty.
