…how America is losing local control by stealth
UN Agenda 21 has a litany of programs and agents of change operating under the banner of sustainability. Not the least of these is a NGO (non-governmental organization) called ICLEI (the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives) that entices local and city governments to join their ranks as a sustainable community with promises of grant monies and non-monetary incentives, and to display their concern for the environment and building a sustainable future for mankind. In reality ICLEI programs promote Marxist goals to end private property through highly restrictive land use policies and take power away from local elected officials through the promotion of regionalism and appointed staffs of planners, facilitators and various experts on sustainable development and environmentalism.
Local governments, short on staff, money and resources fall for this sales pitch and willingly let the so-called professionals implement collectivist programs that would have been unthinkable a generation earlier.
Join Dan and his guests Tom DeWeese and Patrick Wood to learn how these programs are being introduced nationwide to unsuspecting local and City officials, and what their ultimate goal will be when fully implemented. Learn what you can do to stop these programs and expose them for what they really are; an end to local elected government accountable to the people, and a very large stride toward global government.
Tom DeWeese is one of the nation’s leading advocates of individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education and American sovereignty and independence.
A resident of Virginia since 1982, Tom is a native of Ohio. He’s been a candidate for the Ohio Legislature, served as editor of two newspapers, and has owned several businesses since the age of 23. He was listed in the “Outstanding Young Men of America in 1981 and 1982 and was added to the National Registry of Who’s Who in 2000. In 1989 Tom led the only privately-funded election-observation team to the Panamanian elections. In 2006 Tom was invited to Cambridge University to debate the issue of the United Nations before the Cambridge Union, a 200 year old debating society.
Patrick Wood is a leading and critical expert on Sustainable Development, Green Economy, Agenda 21, 2030 Agenda and historic Technocracy. Wood remains a leading expert on the elitist Trilateral Commission, their policies and achievements in creating their self-proclaimed “New International Economic Order” which is the essence of Sustainable Development on a global scale.
An economist by education, a financial analyst and writer by profession and an American Constitutionalist by choice, Wood maintains a Biblical world view and has deep historical insights into the modern attacks on sovereignty, property rights and personal freedom. Such attacks are epitomized by the implementation of U.N. policies such as Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, Smart Growth and in education, the widespread adoption of Common Core State Standards.
