The revolution to take back America and restore it to being the future-oriented free republic it was designed to be, must begin at the state and local level. That is why I consider what the Commissioners of Carroll County, Maryland recently did to be so important, and a “glimmer of sunlight” in the darkness. (Link)
Carroll County is the first government organization in America to vote (unanimously) to withdraw from the UN’s International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). If you don’t know why Carroll County’s withdrawal is so important, hopefully by the end of this article you will. May God grant that many other counties across the United States follow Carroll County’s lead—the sooner the better.
What follows is a revised and updated reprint of one of my articles from 2009. (Link)

“The Plan”—Agenda 21 and the Death Knell of Liberty
“The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. ...The real enemy then is humanity itself.”—From the Club of Rome’s “The First Global Revolution” p. 71,75 1993
“Therefore, send not to know for whom the bell tolls, It tolls for thee.”—John Donne (1572-1631)
The death knell for freedom has been tolling for some time, and only now are people starting to hear it. It started tolling faintly, decades back, and has slowly progressed in volume, until today its tolling is impossible to ignore.
The United States of America—that “shining city on a hill”—had a good run of it, and made a gallant effort at establishing liberty for all. But as the old saw would have it, all good things must come to an end.
Liberty, after all, is an aberration in mankind’s history—a light that has flared here and there over the centuries, only to dissolve back into the darkness.
America is barreling toward becoming a bit player on the world’s stage, and its vaunted middle class—once the envy of the world—is on the verge of being eliminated. For the good of the planet, for the good of Gaia. For the good of the collective—freedom is being replaced by servitude, capitalism by socialism, and property rights by “sustainable development.” (Link)
I’m not talking about something we need to be on guard against. It is all already in place. It has been going on for quite some time, and it will continue to go on, at a greatly accelerated pace. We are at the “end game” point.
And the Globalists know it. Why do you think the Democratic (and many Republican) political hacks on Capitol Hill are so dismissive of “we the people”? They are essentially putting on a “dog and pony show” for public consumption, while the final pieces for America’s defeat are slid into place.
To a great extent the Globalists own the mass media, the entertainment industry, and the Judicial, Executive, and Legislative branches of government. Why should they worry?
Already, several generations have been indoctrinated, via our school systems, to value globalization and “social justice,” over personal responsibility and free enterprise. They have been repeatedly sold the idea that they should, “Think globally, act locally.”
God has been demeaned, marginalized, and eradicated, at every turn. Our religions are, in many cases, a watered down and diluted mimicry of true spirituality.
The Globalists have come out from the closets, the woodwork, and from under rocks. They know that their time of hiding is at long last over. They are brazen about, and proud of, their anti-American/pro-globalist stance. Their arrogance and hubris is palpable.
Call them Communists, Marxists, Fascists, or Globalists—call them what you will, they are collectivists who despise America’s middle class, capitalism, and free enterprise.
They have been duplicitous, Machiavellian, clever, and patient. And it has paid off—the trap has been sprung. How did this happen? America got hit high, and America got hit low. We suffered sudden catastrophic sneak attacks from without, and insidious long-term betrayal from within.
We were hit low by Alinskyesque “community organizers” in our streets, and propagandists in our schools. We were hit high by “think tanks” like the Trilateral Commission, the CoR (Club of Rome), and the CFR (Council for Foreign Relations).
They have divided us with special interest groups, vociferous “talking point” attacks, and identity politics. They have infiltrated our schools, and indoctrinated our children.
They have opened floodgates using the Cloward-Piven Strategy—overwhelming our judicial system, banking establishment, border security, and more. They have encouraged corruption and greed at the lowest, to the highest, levels of government. They have twisted and perverted the US Constitution.
They have promoted and encouraged anything and everything that would help bring America down.
They intend on taking over the planet, but first they need to destabilize, and then destroy, the United States of America. Because we are a powerful bulwark of freedom, we have to go first. And to a large extent, go we have.
The Club of Rome (CoR) was founded in 1968, in Italy, by Aurelio Peccei, an Italian scholar and industrialist, and Alexander King, a Scottish scientist. (Link)
Over the years the list of its members has included ex-presidents, prime ministers, kings, queens, diplomats, and billionaires. Its membership roster reads like a “who’s who” of the world’s movers and shakers. It includes UN bureaucrats, scientists, economists, and business leaders from around the globe. (Link)
After its inception, it split into two additional branches: The CoB (Club of Budapest), and the CoM (Club of Madrid). The CoB focuses mainly on social and philosophical/religious issues, while the CoM concentrates more on political issues. In addition, there are over thirty affiliated organizations in other countries—such as the USACoR in the United States. (Link)
The CoR first garnered public attention with its 1972 report “The Limits to Growth,” which went on to become the best selling environmentalist book of all time. Simply stated, its main thesis is that economic growth cannot continue indefinitely, because of the limited availability of natural resources, particularly oil. It’s a sort of industrialized version of a Malthusian nightmare. (Link)
Twenty years later, the CoR published “The First Global Revolution”—a quote from that book appears at the start of this article. This book also made a big splash, and helped to re-energize and expand the whole environmentalist movement.
Another quote from the book worth keeping in mind is, “It would seem that humans need a common motivation, namely a common adversary…such a motivation must be found to bring the divided nations together to face an outside enemy, either a real one, or else one invented for the purpose….”
“One invented for the purpose.” Enter global warming and greenhouse gases. But something even more important happened the year before “The First Global Revolution ” came out.
At the instigation of the CoR, and their ilk, in 1992 the United Nations held the Conference on Environment and Development—informally known as the Earth Summit—in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
At the Earth Summit, 178 nations signed an agreement called Agenda 21—so called because it dealt with the United Nation’s agenda for the 21st century.
It consists of numerous chapters detailing the role that different parts of society should play in implementing “sustainable development.” There are chapters for central governments, local governments, businesses, and community organizations. (Link)
George Bush senior, then President of the United States, flew down and committed the United States to the UN’s FCCC (Framework Convention on Climate Change) agenda. (Link)
Ever since then, the Executive Branch—Republican or Democrat—has been bypassing Congress, and passing “soft laws” foisting Agenda 21 on the American public. No matter where you go, environmentalism permeates the US Government bureaucracy. Sometimes it is blatant and out front; other times you may need to dig a little, but it is always there.
The Agenda 21 Globalists wine and dine each other, and hold conventions and conferences around the world. They give each other praise, pats on the back, and prestigious awards. The Norwegian Globalists gave Obama the Nobel Peace Prize for the same reason that they gave one to Al Gore—promoting globalization and Agenda 21.
Gore’s movie “An Inconvenient Truth” also received an Oscar from the liberal Hollywood elite. These honors have been bestowed on Gore, not for exposing the truth—for “An Inconvenient Truth” is merely a slickly packaged lie—but because the film spreads the falsehoods of Agenda 21 so well.
It can only be shown to school children in the U.K. if accompanied by a disclaimer. The U.K.‘s “The Daily Mail” reports that “...teachers will have to warn pupils that there are other opinions on global warming, and they should not necessarily accept the views of the film.” (Link)
“The Daily Mail” also noted that the lawyer who successfully sued to have the disclaimer attached, said it did not go far enough. “He said ‘no amount of turgid guidance’ could change the fact that the film is unfit for consumption in the classroom.” Yet American students are forced to view this blatant propaganda—with no disclaimer. (Link)
In June of 2009, NASA said that global warming is caused by solar cycles—i.e. the sun. Left unmentioned was the fact that the greenhouse gas theory is full of holes. Actually it’s a fairy tale, a convenient lie used to force the world to bend to the will of the Globalists. (Link)
Under pressure from the Obama Administration NASA now teaches that global warming is caused by the greenhouse effect, and “bad” gases like CO2—which we humans unfortunately emit each time we breathe. Bad humans! (Link)
Al Gore, the CoR, the UN, and all of the environmental organizations and their adherents, don’t care what the truth is. They could care less about what causes global warming, or if there even is such a thing as global warming. They have their “outside enemy…invented for the purpose,” and they are not about to let go of it.
The Globalists actually tried Global Cooling first, but for various reasons it didn’t fly. Look at page 22 in the 1974 Annual Rockefeller Report, and you’ll find the mention of a conference called to investigate “...the future implications of the global cooling trend now underway….” Things sure warmed up in a hurry. (Link)
So what is the purpose behind all this? What’s really behind all the global warming hoopla? Power. It’s the same old Marxist/Communist/Fascist collectivist shtick, dressed up in new clothes.
Global warming is all about a power grab by a wealthy elite and their collectivist sycophants—using the UN as a cover and tool.
As always, there are numerous “useful idiots” who swallow the party line whole. Some of them are simply misguided idealists, and some of them are nuts—dangerously nuts.
Behind it all, is a relatively small group of people who are manipulating the world for their own twisted, narcissistic ends. It’s a perfect cover. Think about it—who doesn’t feel that fresh air, clean water, and a healthy environment are admirable ends to work toward? Any sane person supports such ideals. But hidden in back of the admirable goals are some diabolical designs. (Link)
Don’t take my word for it, and don’t dismiss what I write without doing your own research. We all need to know what’s headed our way shortly. If you aren’t aware of these facts already, then please educate yourself on the Internet. At least check out green-agenda.com. (Link)
What have we seen since the Obama Administration took over? The brainiacs in charge of America’s finances have been ignoring our debts, and eagerly proposing ways to sink us deeper into a financial quagmire. A lot deeper.
At first I thought that they were simply corrupt, venal, self-serving idiots—all of which is undoubtedly true, but they’re also destroying America’s financial foundation, cleverly and intentionally.
They want the American dollar replaced by a new global currency. They want America’s middle class to hang in the wind, and then die on the vine. They are Globalists, and they want America to fail. It’s so easy to see, once you realize what’s going on. (Link) (Link)
Once you grasp Agenda 21, and the sly machinations of the United Nations and globalizing NGOs like the CoR, it all makes sense.
It’s all part of the “The Plan.” Ruin America’s economy, destroy her middle class, and put a stranglehold on her energy grid.
At the UN Summit at Rio in 1992, the Conference Secretary-General, Canadian billionaire Maurice Strong, said “Isn’t the only hope for this planet that the industrialized civilization collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” (Link)
He also said, “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class—involving high meat intake, the use of fossil fuels, electrical appliances, home and workplace air-conditioning, and suburban housing—are not sustainable.” (Link)
Club of Rome member, multi-billionaire George Soros, echoed Strong’s statement last fall, when he told an Australian newspaper, “America, as the center of the globalized financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out,’ he said, adding that the time has come for ‘a very serious adjustment’ in American’s consumption habits.” (Link)
Forced to cut back on fossil fuel consumption. Forced to cut back on water usage. Forced to give up our property. Forced to eat less. Forced to warm or cool our homes less. Forced to give up driving. Forced to give up these, and many other things that we currently take for granted. It’s “The Plan”—you had better believe it.
Look at what’s happening to California’s Central Valley—once “the world’s breadbasket,” and now a dust bowl. All due to Agenda 21. (Link)
I assure you that the Globalists will not help the farmers. As the saying goes, “You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.” The Globalists want the land unplowed. They want it to go “back to nature.” They want to increase the price of food. They want to ruin the middle class farming community. It’s all part of “The Plan.”
It is not just America this is happening to, of course. Australia, Great Britain, Japan, Canada, Germany… Every country is on the verge of being converted into a vassal state—part of a global hegemony run by the UN and a power elite.
All this will be more easily accomplished with a greatly reduced population. Did I mention population reduction and control?
Behind all of the warm and fuzzy terminology about “smart growth,” “sustainable development,” and “think green,” lies a very chilling fact. The Agenda 21 folks want to reduce the earth’s population—a lot.
In 1996, Club of Rome member and CNN founder, Ted Turner, told Audubon magazine, “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” A 95% reduction! More recently he has said that getting rid of a mere two thirds of the world’s population would suffice. Getting mellow in his old age no doubt. (Link)
The hard-core environmentalists are all bio-centrists. That is, they believe that humanity is no more important than any other species on this planet. In fact, to hear them tell it, the world would be much better off without any people at all.
Anthropologist and anarchist David Graber put it like this in an L.A. Times book review, “Human happiness, and certainly human fecundity, are not as important as a wild and healthy planet. ... We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth. ...Until such time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.” (Link)
At any rate, because most of these Globalists are atheists, they don’t respect the divine spark in man, or unalienable rights, or divine retribution. In short, they don’t have many qualms about killing people—which they have proven time and again whenever, and wherever, their ilk have come to power. Something to keep in mind.
You know the sardonic comment “Well excuse me for breathing?” These people take that statement literally—and probably won’t excuse you. After all, you’re adding to the earth’s carbon dioxide level every time you exhale.
ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) even has a personal CO2 calculator you can use. ICLEI (pronounced “ick-lee”) believes you should know, and of course want to know, the amount of “your yearly direct personal carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.” To which I say, personally and directly, “F—k off.” (Link)
My favorite eco-friendly slogan is “Save the Planet—Kill Yourself.” (Link)
There’s something deeply disturbed, and disturbing, about too many of these folks. For example, Yale professor and eco-nut, Lamont Cole, is of the opinion that “To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world population problem.” (Link)
You should do yourself a favor and peruse the quotes on Free Republic’s “So you’re an environmentalist…” web-page. If you don’t come away convinced that most of these folks are nuttier than a Payday candy bar, then I don’t know what to tell you. (Link)
Many of these “useful idiots” may be crazy and harmless, but they can also be crazy and deadly. Behind them, pulling the strings, and waiting to take over, are the Global Elite and their one world government.
Whether or not America will last as a free republic until the 2012 presidential elections is debatable. Iran’s leadership is aching to nuke Israel, and Israel’s only going to wait so long before taking preemptive measures—and there goes a large chunk of America’s oil supply. And what happens if Egypt comes under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood, and they decide to close the vital Suez Canal? (Remember that Obama’s drilling ban (declared unconstitutional) is still in effect). (Link)
Long lines for gas—if you can get any at all. America’s power grid will flicker, and intermittently fail. Time for the Globalists to make their final moves.
So America, freedom, and Western civilization goes down the drain on our watch. It’s nothing to be proud of, that is for sure.
Is there no hope then? If there are still enough patriotic Americans who value personal integrity, responsibility, and freedom, there is a slim chance we can still turn this thing around, but it won’t be easy. Far from it.
Make no mistake though, if we lose this one, America and the world will sink into an abyss of Godless tyranny for a very, very long time.
