A paradigm shift occurred with the creation of the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in 1994, under Bill Clinton. Thereafter, government priorities went from “serving the people” to “serving the environment”.
By including environmental NGOs and Tax Exempt Foundations in Federal policy making, the foxes were left in charge of the henhouse; endangered species, clean water, clean air, and other “well meaning” policies were radicalized.

JD King was barely 19 years old when he produced and directed the film Crying Wolf that exposed the radical environmentalism behind the re-introduction of wolves in the West, and the danger to private property and the ranching families in Southwest Montana. JD also produced and directed the excellent film Blue, about the misguided, anti-humanist, philosophy driving UN Agenda 21 programs and the danger of following their basic thesis of non-development and a return to third world economic targets.
