Tennessee Joins Texas in Fight Against UN's Agenda 21

Activist Post

I wrote yesterday about encouraging news coming out of Irving, Texas, where Mayor Beth Van Duyne 
and city manager Tommy Gonzalez pushed back against the globalist takeover of local communities by withdrawing membership from ICLEI, the action division of Agenda 21.

Today, I'm happy to report that Tennessee lawmakers have passed  Joint Resolution 587 by a vote of 72-23 to condemn Agenda 21 as "destructive and insidious." 

The language used by the Tennessee lawmakers is worth examination, because it is among the harshest and most truthful that has been used to spell out the true plan that Agenda 21 has in store for the United States.

Contrary to the flowery language that policy makers have used to set Agenda 21 -- appealing to well-meaning people through the use of words like sustainability, biodiversity, quality of life, smart growth, and the ever-inclusive human rights --  the language contained in Resolution 587 strongly refutes this, stating:
WHEREAS, the United Nations Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of extreme environmentalism, social engineering, and global political control that was initiated at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992; and

WHEREAS, the United Nations Agenda 21 is being covertly pushed into local communities throughout the United States of America through the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) through local "sustainable development" policies such as Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, and other 'Green' or 'Alternative' projects; and

WHEREAS, the United Nations Agenda 21 plan of radical so-called 'sustainable development' views the American way of life of private property ownership, single-family homes, private car ownership and individual travel choices , and privately owned farms as destructive to the environment; and

WHEREAS, according to the United Nations Agenda 21 policy, social justice is described as the right and opportunity of all people to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment which would be accomplished by socialist/communist redistribution of wealth; and

WHEREAS, according to the United Nations Agenda 21 policy, national sovereignty is deemed a social injustice; now, therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE ONE HUNDRED SEVENTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, THE SENATE CONCURRING, that the General Assembly recognizes the destructive and insidious nature of United Nations Agenda 21 and hereby exposes to the public and public policymakers the dangerous intent of the plan.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that neither the U.S. government nor any state or local government is legally bound by the United Nations Agenda 21 treaty in that it has never been endorsed by the U.S. Senate.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the federal government and state and local governments across the country be well informed of the underlying harmful implications of implementation of United Nations Agenda 21 destructive strategies for 'sustainable development,' and we hereby endorse rejection of its radical policies and rejection of any grant monies attached to it.

Naturally such a statement of sovereignty, self-direction, and individual rights was criticized by The Southern Poverty Law Center's Hatewatch as being indicative of "a new new sign of antigovernment extremism creeping into the political mainstream."  The SPLC went on to try to invoke a connection to the John Birch Society, maligning them and others who believe in the foundation of America as a place built by individuals and entrepreneurs, not central planners and authoritarians.  (Source)  I sincerely hope that the SPLC condemnation is received by Tennessee lawmakers as the highest form of flattery.

Grassroots activism is clearly having a real impact, as Agenda 21 is finally making its way into the open and educating fellow citizens, as well as those in power.  House Democratic Caucus Chairman, Mike Turner, stated,  “I didn’t know what Agenda 21 was, to be honest with you,” saying he wanted to learn about it. “I had never heard of it before.” Resolution sponsor, Kevin Brooks should be commended for listening to his constituents.  He told the press that “It really is a problem that many Tennesseans do know about ... the responses we’ve received — emails, letters, phone calls, petitions signed by hundreds of Tennesseans saying, ‘Please protect us’ — that’s what we were elected to do.” (Source)

Yes, that is what they are elected to do; to listen to the voices of concerned citizens, and to ignore the agenda-driven rhetoric from groups like The Southern Poverty Law Center and the elite overlords at the United Nations.

While this Resolution is non-binding, it is an indication that the tide is turning; people are awakening to the strings that are being pulled by the UN to control compromised puppet politicians and slither into local communities undetected until it is too late.  Let's continue to keep up the pressure and encourage other states to take action and resist the advancement of Agenda 21 and its many ancillary programs.

Its nice to see that adults, too have time to indulge their imaginations. The UN is about as toothless a boogy man as I've ever seen - EVERYTHING they say is voluntary. I'm glad to see that Tennessee and Texas are such perfect places that they have time to waste on phantoms.

A waste of time. They will comply, They ALL will comply. They are, at heart, cowards like all the others!

Nice thought though.

The U.N. -P f f f t-! A useless group of Global Control freaks. Agenda 21 will not make anyone 'free' but a prisoner to the imposed system of the global elite and global 'nutcases'! They are after your land, money and guns...

Yea, right... who on earth wants a sustainable future? I know I don't give a hoot about my children's children. Fuck 'em. Gimmie all the stuff now, because I'm worth it. It's the 'Mercan way, dontcha kno'?

And to celebrate their 'freedom' from the UN, Tennessee is planning to burn hundreds of tons of Germany's nuclear reactor waste. That's really asserting your rights, Tennessee! I'll take neither option, thanks.

Why did the President feel he needed this power? What is the big Picture?

It makes me so sad that we have to fight for our freedom like this, and the powers to be are slowly, but surely, slipping our freedoms away from us underhandedly, skillfully, and so cleverly. What is even more sad is the fact that our nation as a whole is asleep on this fact. Some of these underhanded skems are being caught and stopped, but the majority are not. It stresses me out to watch. I worry about what kind country, world, we will be leaving our children to live in.

If you believe that agenda 21 is real, then you should praise Tennessee. As to the real motives of any person or group on this earth, that's a mystery. We the people are lied to each day on almost every issue, like: Vietnam, ww11, Cuba, Iraq, Libya, Iran, Chem trails, covert Government spying, ......a list of lies and anti people a mile long at least.

Good for Tennessee and Texas. Hopefully other states will wake up and see the 'writing on the wall' and that FREEDOM needs to be fought for instead of being taken for granted.

The UN is just one of the many, many outposts/organizations created by the Satanic globalists/international bankster-gangsters to get power, wealth and control over everyone and everything on planet earth. Their goal is a one world, Satanic, military, police-state dictatorship with themselves as murderers, war-mongers, liars and thieves in tyrranical charge of everyone and everything on planet other words, hell on earth.
Ron Paul wants the USA OUT of the UN....Great Idea!

Both the GOV and Lt. Gov are from East Tenn. These folks on the mountain side could careless what the U.N. says. Even our federal Government steps real lightly when pushing around citizens out in the countryside here. They might be able to rule the cities. But it would take a nuke to rule over the rednecks and hillbillies in the hollers. Its nothing to see shotguns and pistols around here. Everyones got them . No ones going to take them. That makes the rest of thier rules pretty much useless.
