Conservatives inside and out side of government find themselves in a state of shell shock. This is by design, of course. There are so many issues screaming for attention that none receive the attention they are due. Think about it. Who among you could not come up with a laundry list of topics that are not being addressed with the urgency you believe they deserve. We visit our favorite bloggers every day and it seems each one has another cause de jour and they ask: where is the outrage? The problem, of course, is that when we are being pulled in 100 directions at the same time, we end up going no where. That is the way the progressives and the big government elitist like it. It reminds me of the old adage: when you’re up to your arse in alligators it’s hard to remember that your original plan was to drain the swamp.
To make matters worse, while we are splashing around in our swamp trying to ward off a hundred or more American alligators, outside agencies like the UN and the World Bank think we will hardly notice if they turn loose a few more gators of their own into our swamp.
World Oceans Summit
Canada Free Press give us this heads-up:
The World Oceans Summit in Singapore is the latest platform for the United Nations World Bank to announce its latest assault on sovereign economic decisions and freedom. The oceans are suddenly very sick and “we need coordinated global action to restore our oceans to health,” says World Bank president Robert Zoellick.
The UN has decided that we need a new partnership to “confront the problems of over-fishing, marine degradation, and loss of habitat.” To achieve this goal, Zoellick proposes $300 million in “catalytic finance” from a coalition of countries, scientific centers, NGOs, international organizations, foundations, and the private sector.
Knowledge, experience, expertise, and investment will be gathered around a set of agreed upon goals. His next sentence, reveals the creator of this new scheme, the United Nations with its Agenda 21. Another $1.2 billion must be raised, he said, “to support healthy and sustainable oceans.” A “sustainable” anything is the buzzword for Agenda 21. The final total would be $1.5 billion in new commitments over five years. The group will reconvene in April 2012 in Washington, D.C. for further lobbying of U.S. funds.
No surprises here, is there? Our would be World Government wants the US and other developed nations to give up more of their wealth and sovereignty.to the benefit of the poorer nations. Maybe they didn’t get the message that the so-called developed nations are broke.
UN Agenda 21
This one just won’t go away. While many of you have been busy trying to ward off the influence of unelected promoters of “sustainable communities” on your local planning commissions. these Agenda 21 promoters are trying to take it to the next level: regional planning. The same Canada Free Press article reminds us:
All across the U.S. efforts are underway to pass Regional plans that erase boundaries between cities, counties, and states. “We are losing our ability to influence our government policies at the same time that we are being solicited for our opinion.” This is the Delphi method of manipulating and controlling groups that may protest. (Rosa Koire)
HB 430 will expand the “Regional Cooperation Incentive Fund” and allow the fund to offer an increased amount of government grant money to planning commissions that “consolidate or coordinate” with other local planners, thus regionalize.
Regionalization is a step towards globalization because it is an unelected, unaccountable layer of government in which municipalities become borderless groups. The unelected individuals will develop comprehensive plans of land use that supersede local laws and often disregard private property rights. This parasitic layer of government will then require the local community to bring their laws and zoning in line with their dictates.
Please be alert for HB 430 bills in your state or your local planning commissions will be receiving their orders from unelected regional Agenda 21 planners.
Law Of the Sea Treaty (LOST)
This is another of those “sounds good” ideas that won’t go away. The following was taken from a recent Daily Paul posts:
- LOST threatens U. S. sovereignty. Not just a little or around the edges, but fundamentally. Once the U. S. became a party to the treaty, any number of issues could be adjudicated by a LOST tribunal. It is not clear what the limits are on the issues that could be taken up by LOST. Jurisdiction over anything that affects the oceans directly or indirectly could be asserted. The majority of members of the tribunal adjudicating any particular issue are almost certainly going to be hostile to U. S. interests. Tribunal decisions cannot be appealed. Unlike every other country in the world, those decisions could be enforced in U. S. federal courts against the federal government.
- LOST would be a big step toward United Nations global governance. The treaty’s reach extends far beyond international issues and disagreements into nations’ internal policies on a wide array of issues. The treaty’s structure is designed to replace national decision making with UN decision making on these issues.
- For the first time, the United Nations would have international taxing authority through LOST. Enough said.
- LOST would accomplish backdoor implementation of the Kyoto Protocol and far beyond.
So, as if we didn’t have enough alligators in our swamp, the UN and the World Bank can always be counted on to add a few more. We really to need to drain the swamp.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
