More States and Counties Now Opposing Agenda 21 - August 30, 2012

Also see this link for the National Republican Committee wording on Resolution Opposing Agenda 21 and for the state of Alabama who through their legislature banned Agenda 21 from their state at this link: 

http://www.wpaag.org/agenda_21__rnc_resolution_opposing%20Agenda%2021.htm 

Wyoming, Montana, Minnesota, Washington, Oklahoma, Iowa, Texas, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Arkansas have all passed Resolutions Opposing Agenda 21 (Sustainable Development, and Smart Growth) More counties are also passing such resolutions.  Some of these have exact or almost exact language as the Republican National Committee Resolution. That resolution can be found at this link but is almost identical to the Wyoming Resolution below: http://www.wpaag.org/agenda_21__rnc_resolution_opposing%20Agenda%2021.htm  Iowa calls Agenda 21 a "diabolical collusion."

Agenda 21 is the United Nations agenda behind bike trails (for recreation now but for transportation in the future) and the control of private property in order to build high density housing (managed land use). Environmentalists' view is that cars produce more greenhouse gases than any other activity in our country, and high density housing will reduce the use of cars and push people into using public transit instead of cars.   

 

I received an email from a Floridian yesterday saying "I found your anti Agenda 21 list on the internet.  You may find this this info helpful.    Also there is anti Agenda 21 language in the 2012  GOP Platform that was just approved at the Tampa Convention. He sent me an up- to-date list of states and counties. I looked up all these links and have included the language (or t least most of it) found in these platforms listed below.

34. Resolution Opposing United Nations Agenda 21 (Wyoming GOP Platform)

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 this 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; all 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

RESOLVED, the Wyoming Republican Party recognizes the destructive and insidious nature of United Nations Agenda 21 and hereby exposes to the public and public policy makers the dangerous intent of the plan; and therefore be it further

RESOLVED , that the U.S. government and no 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, and therefore be it further

RESOLVED, that the federal 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.

United Nations Agenda 21 and Land Use

We recognize the destructive and insidious nature of the Untied Nations Agenda 21 and hereby expose to the public and public policy makers the dangerous intent of the Agenda 21 plan.

Minnesota:    http://www.mngop.com/pdfs/platform.pdf - This can be found under Section 10 and under Support our Troops and Allies.

Not only should the United States abstain from surrendering its national sovereignty to the United Nations or any other international organization, but we believe the United States should end its participation in the United Nations, Agenda 21, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund altogether.

Washington:   http://www.wsrp.org/resources/party-documents Use the find tool and search for Agenda or just follow the section numbers in the document.

Section 16: We believe the preservation of LIBERTY is dependent upon the sanctity of our NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY.
The US Constitution is our supreme law of the land. The President shall not negotiate and the Senate shall not ratify any treaties, U.N. resolutions, agendas or foreign law, religious or otherwise, that are contrary to the US Constitution. Agenda 21, the Kyoto Protocol, Sharia Law, and others threaten our sovereignty. Therefore, judges, state and local authorities must be barred from using foreign agendas, laws, and resolutions for the purposes of interpreting United States law.

28. We support strengthening protections for homeowners against arbitrary zoning change, which damage property values and oppose “Sustainable Development”.

5. We support a free market-based public transportation system as opposed to government funding.

6. We oppose public-private partnerships and the use of eminent domain to build and operate toll roads and bridges.

6. We oppose the adoption of any United Nations sustainable development “Agenda 21”initiatives into the governmental planning authorities, policies, or body of law of the United States of America. 

Iowa: http://www.iowagop.org/about  (Could not find original link but found here: (Use find and type in Agenda or look for the sections by the numbers

 2.13 We demand that the term “sustainable development” be defined, vetted, and controlled by county and state agricultural agencies whose private property it impacts rather than the UN, other international or Agenda 21 agencies, or any federal organization.

9.6 We strongly oppose the diabolical collusion of the United Nations in establishing the unconstitutional “sustainable development agenda 21” in our local communities, our state and our nation.

11.6 We oppose any treaty that would regulate the use of Iowa lands and waters such as the UN Agenda 21 plan, which is being implemented throughout the United States and which restricts or destroys the property rights of Americans under the guise of environmentalist initiatives such as Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, and others with similarly “Green” sounding names. United Nations Agenda 21 policy deems America’s national sovereignty a social injustice and Agenda 21 concludes “the only way to make the future sustainable is to reduce America’s living standards and transfer their wealth to developing nations”.

16.9 We call for the Iowa legislature to repeal SF2389 that mandates regional planning for central Iowa through the “Tomorrow Plan”, which is a by-product of Agenda 21.

3.14 We strongly oppose government monies being given to private organizations such as Planned Parenthood, AARP, ACORN, ACLU, and other groups which lobby for policies contrary to the views expressed in this platform. [Note: AARP has received grants for EPA training and sponsored training featuring radical transportation environmentalists speakers like Dan Burden.]

United Nations Agenda 21 -The Republican Party of Texas should expose all United Nations Agenda 21 treaty policies and its supporting organizations, agreements and contracts. We oppose implementation of the UN Agenda 21 Program which was adopted at the Earth Summit Conference in 1992 purporting to promote a comprehensive program of sustainable development projects, nationally, regionally and locally. We oppose the influence, promotion and implementation of nongovernmental organizations, metropolitan and/or regional planning organizations, Councils of Government, and International Council for Local Environmental initiatives and the use of American (Texas) citizen’s taxes to promote these programs.
