Meat Eaters in Peril

Note: This information is from Tom DeWeese at American Policy Center. GSF(s) does not collect money, nor do we usually solicit for anyone else, but Tom does do a lot more nationally than we could possibly do, so if you are feeling generous this Christmas, consider gifting American Policy Center to help them defend these cattlemen.

“Meat consumption is devastating some of the world’s most valuable and vulnerable regions, due to the vast amount of land needed to produce animal feed.”

That quote is from a report issued by the radical World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the top three most influential environmental groups in the world.

For years the WWF has been working to force us to stop eating meat and replace it with Soy products.

So what you say? Empty threat? Not going to happen?

Then you had better listen to what I’m about to tell you.

The World Wildlife Fund has succeeded in taking over the American Cattle Industry!
They have created the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef.

It comes with an endless list of rules to control how cattlemen are to operate – and those rules increase costs, and make it nearly impossible for small farmers to operate.

They have succeeded in getting the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association to endorse the Roundtable’s crazy rules.

And the Roundtable now controls the beef packing industry which in turn controls the entire beef retail market. Cattlemen either toe the WWF dictates or are cut out of the industry.

The Roundtable plans come with a strict set of “principles” that are right out of Agenda 21. The “principles must be considered in their entirety.”

The rules take away the farmer’s right to control his own property. Instead, the farmer is forced to deal with the introduction of predators like wolves and bears. The WWF calls that “biological diversity.”

The rules disallow farmers to use water that runs through their own land –yet demand that the cattle be well fed and watered.

The rules even demand that the farmer provide “thermal comfort” – housing – for herds of hundreds or even thousands of cattle.

These rules ignore that fact that American cattlemen have always produced the highest grade of beef in the world – just by using a process that has been used by their forefathers for generations.
The real result of these rules isn’t to produce a better beef product – but to destroy small producers and drive the industry to the massive corporate farms that can afford to play ball with the World Wildlife Fund.

The World Wildlife Fund has openly stated its opposition to beef production. They insist that to “Save the Earth it is demanded that we change human consumption habits away from beef.”

How in the world did this powerful anti-beef, anti-free enterprise, UN monster get control of our beef industry?

The short answer is that a vast majority of the beef producers in the nation, as represented by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association are merely ignorant of the threat from the Sustainable policy.

But there is a growing number of cattlemen who are starting to fight back. They know these policies are bad.

The trouble is they are a small minority fighting a powerful monster. The leaders of their own industry are working to crush their opposition. They need help.

I’m proud to say these desperate freedom fighter cattlemen have reached out to the American Policy Center and me to help them fight back.

Just a couple of months ago I spoke to their conference in Oklahoma to teach them the details they need to focus on to fight the radical World Wildlife Fund. I got a standing ovation. Now I am working to prepare articles to help get their story out to the nation. I want to help these people in every way I can!

Americans must learn the truth that our national food supply is being targeted!

The Bigger Purpose of Regionalism

Underneath the supposed altruism of pushes for things such as “new urbanism” lies a deeper motivation — that of regionalism, and regional government. As the righthand sidebar quotes explain, one cannot simply wave a magic wand and convert the United States into a network of global mega-cities under a central global authority in one fell swoop. It must be done incrementally with unelected regional councils.

We have previously noted that in other states, these regional councils have been given authority to approve grants and zoning applications. Thankfully New Hampshire has not yet come to this point. But it will happen eventually if “regionalism” by the unelected is not nipped in the bud.

So next time someone tells you it’s the government’s job to provide “complete streets” or “workforce housing”, look past the surface and any altruistic motives and see beyond to the bigger goal of changing the political landscape via “regional government”.

UN Officials Highlight Hidden Aspects of 2030 Agenda

Interesting articles that proves the United Nations is behind the “human settlements” idea, of which “new urbanism” has a part in promoting.

The articles cover topics that do not always feature prominently when discussing SDG implementation, such as disarmament and sexual violence. Pramila Patten, Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict, highlights gender-based violence, which she describes as the “missing dimension” of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Patten links sexual violence to a human rights-based approach and the “leave no one behind” principle. She notes that “when war erupts, and the threat of rape at gunpoint becomes a pervasive terror,” women are unable to access fields, marketplaces and water points, and that girls are unable to attend school. Patten further highlights the disproportionate economic and health impacts of war on women, connecting to the majority of the SDGs. She also flags the importance of time: whereas men can invest hours in work, education or civic engagement, women—especially in developing countries—are often burdened with unpaid labor such as cooking, cleaning and childcare. Patten closes by calling on countries to legislate gender equality not only as a moral and social justice imperative, but also a smart economic choice.

Additional articles cover sexual health and reproductive rights, rule of law and sustainable human settlements, among other topics.

How New Urbanism Fits Into Agenda21/2030

Rosa Koire, author of “Behind the Green Mask”, is interviewed in Denmark in 2013.

Listen to understand how “new urbanism” fits into the fascist (by their own admission) new order being brought about by Agenda21/2030.

As she sums it up, it used to be the US, the States, the Counties, and then the Towns, but Agenda21/2030 seeks to change the political order as “Globalism, Regionalism, Cities”.

Pubic Private Partnerships – Time to Rethink?

Public confidence in partnerships between the public and private sector has been shaken recently.

High profile failings like the collapse of Carillion have exposed flaws in the business models of some companies which deliver public services, but extract rather than create value.

With austerity as a backdrop driving the need for cost-cutting, contracting with the private sector may have been viewed as the “cheaper” option.

But the public sector – via the taxpayer – ultimately picks up the costs for failed contracts further down the line.

It’s time to rethink public private partnerships

What Authority Do Regional Commissions Have?

In this article about a section near Los Angeles, CA. there is the suggestion that their regional planners have authority to approve high density developments.

“The last remaining road blocks barring construction of more than 500 homes between Shadow Pines and Agua Dulce were removed Thursday by regional planners.

The Spring Canyon Project faces one final hurdle next month when it goes to the hearing officer of the Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning, paving the way for construction to begin.”

In NH, Regional Planning Commissions have NO governing authority. This could change however. The problem with NH’s RPCs is that they continue to bring in other unaccountable and unelected private and non-governmental groups to inject their agendas in your town government.

Regionalism – Is Unaccountable Government Taking Over Your Town?

It’s happening everywhere. Regionalism is taking precedence over local control.

Taxpayers find themselves at the mercy of a supposedly “advisory only regional planning commission” who then engages NGOs and other private entities to influence the elected governing bodies, who then shape and plan the area with complete disregard for what the local taxpayers would do, and how they would do it.

Here are just some examples that show NH is not alone… with excerpts that should sound very familiar. After reading these examples, one may get a better feel for what “regionalism” is all about. As Andrés Duany claims, cities and regions are more important government-wise, than states and towns.

Wind-farm rule revisions won’t see a vote by planning commission

“Under the Illinois Counties Code, a regional planning commission is responsible for making “a plan” for the region to “best promote health, safety, morals, order, convenience, prosperity, efficiency and economy in the process of development and the general welfare of said region.” The commission is described as a “fact-finding body” for the “planning and development” of the region.

The law does not say anything about the commission being allowed to make changes or recommend changes to ordinances.”

And, this from Vermont. Does “infill development” make sense with the title of the article?

Town plan focuses on energy, wildlife

“From the chapter on future land use: “The over-arching goal of the Land Use Plan is to guide growth and development by reinforcing Waterbury’s traditional pattern of concentrated settlement surrounded by rural countryside. This can be achieved by directing growth into areas most appropriate for development. The objective is not to prevent growth but rather to encourage ‘infill’ development within currently developed areas and to support additional development in areas identified as ‘Growth Centers.’”

Does this sound familiar?
Tahoe Regional Planning Association’s Shoreline Plan nears approval

“The proposed Shoreline Plan puts a cap on shoreline development imposing a limited number of new shoreline structures such as piers, buoys and public boat ramps. With the new regulations, new shoreline programs will be put in place aimed at addressing the environmental effects of shoreline activity and will be paid for through fees on moorings, boat stickers and boat rental concessions.”

Notice in the above article, the ‘advisory’ RPC suggests to the governing board that new taxes and fees be imposed, which is usually the end result of these unelected bureaucrats basically making the decisions for the voters.

And here is an example of the town creating a ‘cultural district’… as in, circus on every corner… This is not something most bedroom communities aspire to, but it is part of the “social engineering” present in most Master Plans.

Great Barrington prepares to celebrate its new cultural district

“The town pursued a cultural district designation as a result of its 2013 Master Plan. Arts organizations, nonprofits and businesses were convened to provide input. The selectboard then applied to the Massachusetts Cultural Council for the downtown area to be designated as a cultural district, and the application was unanimously approved by the council in August.”

And this town gave the county planning commission the boot, as should all towns and cities in NH.

Here is proof that sustainablists don’t mind uglying up miles of natural landscape for the purpose of their failed alternative energy schemes… Notice the supporters gathered in force and wore similar shirts to show their positions?

Granite State Future(s) will continue to present examples such as this in an attempt to monitor what goes on in other towns, cities and states to be able to make the public in New Hampshire aware of what could happen to their own state if “regionalism” is not dealt with in a timely fashion.
