Green New Deal and What it Means for Your Town

We marvel at the fact that we are often joined in our local efforts to put a halt to high-density and other features of the “new urbanism” agenda by those who vote at the federal and state level for the very people and policies that are causing the problem locally.

A recent message by Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center is illustrative. He talks about the “Green New Deal”:

“The Sustainablists have boldly thrown off their cloaking devices and admitted that their goal isn’t just “voluntary environmental protection.”

Instead, they are now openly revealing that their real goal is socialism and global control, just as I’ve been warning about for these past twenty-seven years.”

As we have already seen in our NH towns, the “new urbanists” don’t just want to plan how streets are laid out, they want to control where you live, work, and play, and how you travel and communicate, even how you socialize. It is reminiscent of the model of the planned society of the future.

Tom goes on to say:

“I warned that Agenda 21 would control every aspect of our lives, including how and were we live, the jobs we have, the mode of transportation available to us, and even what we eat. The Green New Deal is a tax on everything we do, make, wear, eat, drink, drive, import, export and even breathe.”

In NH, new urbanist consultants, brought into the towns by the regional planners, have ideas for how you should live, work and play, how you travel, and even how you communicate and socialize. Taxing is a way to control this… but read on for more…

“In opposing Smart Growth plans in your local community, I said the main goal was to eliminate cars, to be replaced with bikes, walking, and light rail trains. The Green New Deal calls for the elimination of the internal combustion engine. The next step will be to put a ban on the sale of new combustion engines by a specific date and then limiting the number of new vehicles to be sold. Bans on commercial truck shipping will follow. Then they will turn to airplanes, reducing their use. Always higher and higher taxes will be used to get the public to “voluntarily” reduce their use of such personal transportation choices.”

In NH we see the push for sidewalks, bike lanes, and commuter rail. Smaller lot sizes, bigger buildings, and transit-oriented development.

“I warned that under Smart Growth programs now taking over every city in the nation that single-family homes are a target for elimination, to be replaced by high-rise stack and pack apartments in the name of reducing energy use.”

Bedford and other towns are currently fighting the “stack and pack” mania…and we’ve even seen other states that HAVE actually passed ordinances against single family zoning!

“I warned that Agenda 21/Sustainable policy intends to drive those in rural areas off the farms and into the cities where they could be better controlled.”

And we have been complaining about this very thing:

“Over these years elected officials have listened to the Sierra Club, the Nature Conservancy, the World Wildlife Fund, ICLEI, the American Planning Association, and many more, as they assured that their plans were just environmental protection – just good policy for future generations. Well, now the truth is right in front of you. There is no question of who and what is behind this. And no doubt as to what the final result will be.”

In Bedford they invited the World Health Organization, AARP, SNHRPC/APA, and other private, unelected, and unaccountable organizations pushing for housing changes from out of the area. NGOs and private corporations are running the show, unbeknownst to the voters who still think they have local control.

The only way to stop this is at the local level, and by NOT voting for it at the State and Federal levels. Will those folks who have joined us in the fight against high-density but still vote for the Agenda at the State and Federal levels ever figure this out?

The UN’s Agenda Openly Available

For those who don’t want to admit the UN has become an overly powerful behemoth of an organization, behold the fact that it now wants to create a ‘world government’ to replace the governments of individual countries. It has even been said that the EU is the ‘new Soviet’.

Does America really want to be part of this?

Note, despite the fact that deniers have accused us of having an ‘agenda’ for simply pointing this out, these documents come directly from the United Nations itself…

Another RPC Bites the Dust — in Illinois

In Grundy County Illinois, wise county managers have decided to eliminate their regional planning commission.

MORRIS – The Grundy County Regional Planning Commission is no more. The Grundy County Board voted at its regular meeting Tuesday to terminate the commission and move its responsibilities to the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Board Chairman Chris Balkema, R-District 2, said he hoped people would learn that the process in Grundy County is getting more efficient.

“This is a great savings to the county in terms of time and expediency of the process,” he said.

Now if only NH would see the wisdom in this, and eradicate these errant, unaccountable boards. For now, the only way to escape your RPC is to demand your town unsubscribe from their ‘services’.

How the UN Agenda is Infused Into Curriculum

Newswise — Aurora, IL – The Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy is leading the emerging trend in education of developing the next generation to solve global challenges and living one of its founding principles to “significantly influence life on our planet.”

In 2015, countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. In 2017, IMSA adopted these 17 Sustainable Development Goals and started to incorporate them into content and pedagogy for all subjects.

Still think the UN has no influence over American education? Think again.

Is Your Town Reporting Back to the UN?

The internationally agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are starting to become a reference point for a wide range of public and private actors. In recent weeks, for example,
New York City declared it will be the first major city to report directly to the United Nations on its progress toward the relevant economic, social, and environment targets for 2030.

The idea is simple: massive redistribution of wealth is necessary to level the playing field across the world. This will be done through global governance.

Do you agree? If not, why aren’t you attending every single planning board meeting in your town, and challenging your town’s master plan?

Activists in Alabama Kill Local Agenda 21 Scheme

Considering this is going on all over the USA, and not just in NH, you would think more people would get off their couches and fight it?

They say “you can’t fight city hall,” and it is an even bigger battle when the issue “city hall” is pushing is really just a part of a world-government scheme. Yet, in Bayou La Batre, Alabama (shown), John Birch Society (parent organization of The New American) member Jim Marshall and others recently demonstrated that patriotic citizens not only can fight city hall, they can win — if they have the educational weapons in their “arsenal,” provided by The John Birch Society.

The scheme defeated in Bayou La Batre, on the Alabama Gulf coast, was part of Agenda 21, which is a globalist attempt to impose UN environmental regulations aimed at controlling local cities and towns though the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). It was created in 1991, and already includes hundreds of member cities and towns in the United States and around the world.

Never forget what the US State Department signed on to in 1992. It was an agreement that said “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle-class — involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.”

Will HUD Communism Continue Under Trump?

On July 8, 2015, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the final rule on Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH). HUD describes this rule – “everyone can access affordable, quality housing regardless of their ‘race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, or familial status.'”

HUD’s Secretary, Julian Castro, stated that “unfortunately, too many Americans find their dreams limited by where they come from, and a ZIP code should never determine a child’s future.” To make sure all Americans have access to “safe, affordable housing in communities that are rich with opportunity,” HUD will socially reengineer where we live.

This new AFFH (15-084) HUD rule was issued based on “recommendations made by a 2010 Government Accountability Office report, stakeholders, and HUD program.

HUD is Nothing But a Social Justice Agency

To help “very low-income families” live in better neighborhoods, the Obama administration has issued a sweeping order requiring the government to pay more for their housing so they can move to areas of higher opportunity and lower poverty. The final rule was announced in the federal register this month by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the agency that annually spends tens of billions on rent for the poor.

A chunk of the money, an estimated $18 billion according to the Congressional Budget Office, goes to a program called Housing Choice Voucher (HCV), which is funded by HUD and administered by local public housing agencies. It allows recipients to choose housing in the private market and pays a set amount based on fair market rent for a metropolitan area. Under the new rule, which goes into effect in January, fair market rents will now be calculated by ZIP code so Uncle Sam will pay a lot more for people to live in nicer areas. Here’s an excerpt of the new regulation: “This final rule establishes a more effective means for HCV tenants to move into areas of higher opportunity and lower poverty by providing the tenants with a subsidy adequate to make such areas accessible and, consequently, help reduce the number of voucher families that reside in areas of high poverty concentration.”
