‘Battle for the California Desert: Why is the Government Driving Folks off Their Land?’

If you have been looking behind the curtain of “going green,” biodiversity, smart growth, and sustainable developmentthen you see with us, the kind of tyranny from which America’s forefathers fought to be free.

And you will recognize that recurring theme in this video.

Governmental control of the once free American Citizenry through rules of land use, as we have explored, is neofascism and it is neo-Marxism, both.

Are those terms relics of the 20th Century? Add one and we have Agenda 21.

American, if you do not know just what that is, we implore you, do not procrastinate, nor get stuck in the Rossian first stage of grief (denial). It is time to be awakened to its reality, so have a cup of coffee, watch, listen, and read.

Do you feel yourself starting to curl up and play possum? Stop. Meet the real enemy of today if you have lived this long, Pogo.  It is the python cuddling up to you and your neighbors.

Citizens as in the days of Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and Pol Pot, being driven off their land is no spotty happenstance, nor the video, merely anecdotal evidence. See beyond the fig-leaf charge of “conspiracy theory” and learn the up-to-the-minute facts.  This the life and liberty suffocating soft warfare of the present.

From this video’s YouTube page:

The Antelope Valley is a vast patch of desert on the outskirts of Los Angeles County, and a segment of the few rugged individualists who live out there increasingly are finding themselves the targets of armed raids from local code enforcement agents, who’ve assembled into task forces called Nuisance Abatement Teams (NATs).

The plight of the Valley’s desert dwellers made regional headlines when county officials ordered the destruction of Phonehenge: a towering, colorful castle constructed out of telephone poles by retired phone technician Kim Fahey. Fahey was imprisoned and charged with several misdemeanors.

But Fahey is just one of many who’ve been targeted by the NATs, which were assembled at the request of County Supervisor Mike Antonovich in 2006. LA Weekly reporter Mars Melnicoff wrote an in-depth article in which she exposed the county’s tactic of badgering residents with minor, but costly, code violations until they face little choice but to vacate the land altogether.

“They’re picking on the the people who are the most defenseless and have the least resources,” says Melnicoff.

Reason.tv collaborated with Melnicoff to talk with some of the NAT’s targets, such as retired veteran Joey Gallo, who might face homelessness if he’s forced to leave his house, and local pastor Oscar Castaneda, who says he’s already given up the fight and is in the process of moving off the land he and his wife have lived on for 22 years. And, while Antonovich declined an interview, we did catch up with him at a public meeting in order to ask the big question at the center of all this: Why the sudden enforcement of these codes against people living in the middle of the desert, who seemingly are affecting no one?

  1. Same thing is happening slowly in AZ as well; however they have taken one other step as well, for they now have what are called “Hoarder Committees” which can go into a persons house, and based on what they see and determine, via laws that are so broad in their definitions one can be fined and evicted for the smallest stack of papers upon a desk, or for having two trophies in a trophy case.

    This has happened, and documented in many of the smaller papers of the state. One of these members stated on the live news that they have the “absolute authority to declare anyone a ‘hoarder’ even if they have too much in the way of groceries stored in their kitchens and can order them seized, for the common good.”

    This is about legalized harassment and terrorism by the progressive socailists taking more control at the city and county and state levels, since they have fairly well won at the national level.

  2. Without question this is Agenda 21. It has been around since 1992 signing with the U.N. and has now taken an unbelievable acceleration impacting all of us across th U.S.. Visit ICLEI’s member’s list to see if your state, county or local government has signed up and please take action to stop/reverse their commitment if they have. http://www.icleiusa.org/about-iclei/members/member-list
    There are many sites you can search (Santa Cruz-Agenda 21 for one) to learn how to take appropriate and effective steps in order to reverse this devasting trend.

  3. This absolutely sickens me. Our forefathers and founders of this great Nation are rolling over in their graves.

    Which is why we have the 2nd ammendment and this….

    That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

  4. Los Angeles County is indeed a member of ICLEI. The UN’s Agenda 21 does not recognize private property rights. Watch the action of another ICLEI community in Cedar Falls. The video shows the city council vote to gain access to keys to private property over the objections of the residents. Outrageous.

  5. Both of these videos sound more like Gestapo tactics to me than our government at work. Our forefathers worked to install a government for the people and by the people. For this man to say that the will of the people means nothing to them is unconstitutional. Plus the forcing of people off their land in California is almost the same as the Nazis did to the Jews in 1930’s Germany. It is also the same as the U.S. government did to the people of Japanese descent during WWII.

  6. Hi there Arlen and Trevor, just consider this as well, MF Global was a key hedge fund where mid-west farmers were highly invested, it is curious that this fund failed, so could it have been on purpose? Farmers now are stuck without the capital to invest in production. More Agenda 21….Just check out the law firm representing MFG….Skadden Arps and Bradely Abelow, the lead counsel. I am thinking this was all by design as Lisa Jackson is in the mix as well.
