Where, exactly, does the U.S. Constitution authorize the federal government to create “sustainable communities” to:

… expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands.

Clearly, the Constitution provides no such authority, and the 10th Amendment prohibits the federal government from engaging in activity not explicitly enumerated and authorized in the Constitution. This fact meant nothing to Bill Clinton, who created the President’s Council on Sustainable Development by executive order. Nor does this fact have meaning to Barack Hussein Obama.

On June 9, 2011, by Executive Order 13575, Obama created the White House Rural Council. This new council consists of 25 Cabinet secretaries – or their designee – and is chaired by the secretary of Agriculture. The mission of the council is to:

… work across executive departments, agencies, and offices to coordinate development of policy recommendations to promote economic prosperity and quality of life in rural America, and shall coordinate my Administration’s engagement with rural communities.

Anyone who has ever had cow manure on his boots knows full well that until the federal government decided to get “engaged” with rural communities to improve the quality of life for the poor souls who live in fly-over county, farming and ranching fed the nation. Rural America provided the resources that fueled unprecedented prosperity. Not until the government showed up to help did rural families begin to suffer.

Obama’s new White House Rural Council has the potential to be much worse than anything Franklin Roosevelt ever dreamed about. In 1992, the U.N. produced a 40-chapter, non-binding policy document called Agenda 21. This document sets forth recommendations to transform capitalism and a free republic into an administrative unit of global governance. Bill Clinton’s PCSD began imposing these policies on American towns and cities in the mid-1990s. Obama’s new council is designed to continue and expand the implementation of these policies into the hinterland.

Remember the National Animal Identification System, which USDA said was being abandoned. Ha! It’s back. This new council will have the effect of multi-jurisdictional enforcement. Simply put, if a rancher or farmer fights too hard against the new USDA electronic identification system, the rancher can and will be identified throughout every agency in the council and forced to submit to inspections and enforcement of every rule and regulation imaginable. This is multi-jurisdictional enforcement.

Obama’s ultimate goal is to assure that government has ultimate control of every square inch of land, every business activity, the curriculum in every school and, ultimately, the information that may be conveyed on the public airways.

This is the goal of Agenda 21. Its recommendations are designed to produce this outcome. The program is called “Sustainable Development,” which means in real terms “government-approved” development. Every recommendation in Agenda 21 requires government enforcement. Any activity that is preceded by the word “Sustainable,” should be recognized as a “government-controlled” activity.

Sustainable Development brings the concept of “Amortization of Non-Conforming Uses.” This means that, over time, the right of private landowners to occupy their houses will automatically be extinguished, and owners will be forced to leave their property without just compensation. This is happening in both urban and rural areas of the country. One of the more blatant examples was revealed in an article published by the LA Weekly News, June 23: “L.A. County’s Private Property War.”

Countless L.A. County property owners have been victimized by armed NATs (Nuisance Abatement Teams) issuing citations for “living on the land illegally” and other equally ridiculous code violations. This is on land the victim owns. The code violations arise from new codes that comply with Agenda 21. These codes did not exist when the homes in Antelope Valley were built 20 and 30 years ago. Owners have had the time since the new codes were adopted, until recently, to bring their structures up to code. Those who failed to do so have now effectively lost their property to the county – without compensation. The fact that the land owners had no idea these ridiculous codes had been adopted is no excuse. This is “Amortization of Non-Conforming Uses.”

This is “Agenda 21’s Sustainable Development” operating in the rural areas of Los Angeles County. This is what the rest of rural America can expect from the White House Rural Council in the months and years ahead.

To a large extent, the federal government has imposed this principle for quite a while. Think: endangered species, wetlands, sodbuster, uncontrolled wildfires, wilderness designations and other land-use control policies that have no constitutional basis.

This new White House Council is an attempt to put a pretty ribbon of respectability on an even nastier regime of government regulation and oppression. It’s high time to recognize the administration’s blatant disregard for the Constitution and cleanse Washington of all who allow either Congress or the executive branch to embrace the socialist policies recommended by the United Nations.

  • He is a progressive socialist radical and so are his cronies in the administration; their window of opportunity is now closing to make the changes and seize power that they wish. People are awakening to them, and are becoming alive with a righteous wrath at what we are so close to losing…our very freedoms and liberties.

    Expect within the next few weeks for Obama to make a final grab for absolute power and control, for right now he is only one or two steps shy of being a dictator and tyrant in all but formal naming.

    I pray to the Almighty for Him to act and intervein on the behalf of the people here who want to restore the nation, bring us back to the liberty we have sold out and willingly given away to the govt.

    We have for too long been negligent in the duty to safeguard our own freedoms; and so the choice is now to be free or go into the night as serfs and slaves.

    Agenda 21 and ICLEI are a “Clear and Present Danger” to the Liberty in and Sovereignty of the United States of America. Progressivism, Marxism, Socialism and and all the other enemies of a free people act like a mold. They do not attack at only one single point, but at each and every boundary and facet that they can make headway. There is a “war” of ideology that is “going over the heads” of most citizens that don’t realize the significance of it.

      Dave, Here’s something 99% of the global population don’t know about the United States remains a British colony! In the mid-1700s the American Colonies were prospering, in part because they were issuing their own money called “Colonial Scrip,” which was strictly regulated and did not require the payment of any interest. When the bankers in Great Britain heard this, they turned to the British Parliament, which passed a law prohibiting the Colonial Scrip, forcing the colonists to accept the “debt” or “fiat” money* issued by the Bank of England. Contrary to what history teaches, the American Revolution was not ignited by a tax on tea. According to Benjamin Franklin, it was because “the conditions [became] so reversed that the era of prosperity ended.
      When the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783, most Americans thought that total Independence from England had been won. The fact of the matter, however, is that true Independence from England never really materialized:

      Marx and Engels summed up the ten planks of communism in one sentence: the abolition of private property. It is not an oversimplification to say that communism through the consensus process trespasses and works to eliminate borders and boundaries from the national sovereign level on down to the individual level; the goal being no protections between the individual and the state.

    Trevor, Many people around the globe have called and criticized the writing and wording of this document “THE PROTOCOLS OF THE LEARNED ELDERS OF ZION” as a huge propaganda slur against the Jews, yet after reading thru a lot what is written there, you’ll then realize much of what is stated in there has already happened when you look back at history!

    I thought Agenda 21 was something made up by whackos. Now I see the problem. Thank You.

    • sodacrackers2 says:

      We could only wish it was some wacko thing. Actually, it a wacko UN thing agreed upon by our dear President without our consent or knowledge. He needs to be impeached right after we kick the UN out of the US. Our sovereignty is at stake here. If you think governments of nations are corrupt, imagine a government of the entire world.
