Republican Party Adopts Anti-Agenda 21 Platform (Edited)

Russ Steele

According to His Purpleness it is only the hard right who are promoting anti-Agenda 21 actions by the local government officials. According to the Purple One we conservatives are wasting local government officials time and energy by promoting specious partisan theories that Agenda 21 is creeping into state laws, local regulations and ballot propositions.

As you may recall Agenda 21 is the non-binding 20-year-old UN resolution promoting sustainable development.  Initially our local left tried a frontal attack to bring sustainable development to Nevada County as part of NH2020. A stealthy Agenda 21 attack by the left.

Local conservatives managed to kill NH2020, but the left did not give up, they tried to formed a local ICLEI chapter and promote ICLEI training for the County staff. ICLEI is a UN sponsored international association of local governments that have made a commitment to sustainable development.

The ICLEI initiative was thwarted by the vigilance local letter writers, bloggers, and in face to face meetings with Supervisors. Still not willing to give up, the locals band together with other like-minded lefties in California and formed California Forward, a think tank who wrote Prop 31.

While the conservative effort to kill off Agenda 21 socialism has made some progress, the challenge has grown and others are now involved. States are now considering banning Agenda 21. Alabama has completed the process, New Hampshire House of Representatives voted to ban UN Agenda 21 polices, Arizona SB1507, would have prevented the state, county, and city governments of Arizona from adopting any tenets of Agenda 21, however it failed to pass.

George Rebane points out on his blog Ruminations,  Agenda 21 does not swoop in, it creeps in and our vigilance is necessary.

Now the Republican Party has weighed in with an Anti-Agenda 21 Platform.

“We strongly reject the U.N. Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty, and we oppose any form of U.N. Global Tax.” 

Agenda 21 has become a national issue and we need to redouble our effort to defeat Prop 31 in California.  Local conservatives are no long alone in their resolve to keep Nevada County free of Agenda 21 socialism.

Vote No on Prop 31

    How fitting that on Labor Day (brought to you by Unions) a small group of addled old men will be talking to an empty chair representing the power they once held to influence the Country about a bunch of conspiracy theories right out of the mind of Buck Turgidson and Joe McCarthy.

      You are quite a conspiracy nut yourself. Global Warming? Rising Seas? Melting Ice caps? You are in the mix of leftwing nutty beliefs right up to the top of your Prius.

  2. Todd Juvinall says:

    Better than an empty head.

    Unfortunately Agenda21 is real, the US is a signatory to it, and the continuing denials by hardworking promoters of ‘sustainable development’ make its quiet encroachment even more real. I believe it was the exhortations of a singularly addled man telling us not to look behind the (Agenda21) curtain that makes such an inspection even more compelling.

    • Todd Juvinall says:

      Do you think these deniers of Agenda21 have ever talked to anyone from One Bay Area?

    Here is an interesting take on A-21 from a leftwinger, Debra Kori…

  5. Mike thanks for the tip. I bought the Kindle edition after reading this review:

    “Here’s a nice endorsement from Rep. Jim McCune, a Washington state congressman, that he included in his newsletter to his constituents. Notice that he refers to Agenda 21:
    I came across a book, Behind the Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21, written by a woman who was able to put into words her first-hand experiences of her harrowing journey over several years in California defending property rights. It reads almost like a mystery or thriller. It’s hard to put down, because you want to know what happens next, including whether the taxpayer or the government/stakeholder/special interest wins. You will be introduced to a good deal of the terminology used by supporters of the United Nation’s platform for sustainable living (Agenda 21), such as: vision 2040, visioning, stakeholder, collaborate, regionalize (regional governance), community rights, biodiversity, wild lands, core wilderness reserves, biosphere reserves, human settlements, public-private partnerships (PPP or 3P), etc.”

    I may order a hard copy for Supervisor Beason if I find it useful and factual.
