#U.N. #Agenda21 #Reached #WoodCounty,WI #Back in #Early #90s

Pictured here, you can see my lovely wife, Jean and I working the Campaign for Liberty table at the RPW State Convention in the Dells with the late, great Liberty Icon of Ed Thompson-like proportions, Tony Bellanti, Sr.... R.I.P. 

The following research was collected and written by a close friend. Please check out his new blog:

U.N. Agenda 21 Reaches Small Town Wisconsin

While researching proposed sand mining legislation that has been floating around small towns  in Wisconsin, I noticed some interesting “tentacles” that I believe stem from that control grid monolith, U.N. Agenda 21. The ramifications of these I believe will have devastating effects particularly on agriculture which is critical to basic survival and remains an integral part of daily life in Wisconsin. These tentacles are far-reaching indeed, and appear to be right outside my door in a small town in western Wisconsin.
For those not familiar with U.N Agenda 21 it is presented as an environmentally inspired, European style, land use/zoning,  plan being “recommended” by the United Nations in their pursuit of global harmony.  The initiative came out in the 1990′s under the Clinton administration.
Many of us believe that like most interventionist, one size fits all, top down,  “planning” initiatives it will not achieve its stated goals.  It was never intended to achieve its stated goals.  Instead it will continue the  centuries old process led by the global elite of propagating systems which destroy national sovereignty, control the masses, and eliminate whatever shreds of individual liberty that still remain.  History indicates these systems continually benefit the few, (the elite) at the expense of the many, (us commoners).  There is abundant information available on the subject of U.N. Agenda 21 making it easy to do your own research and form your own opinions.
It is widely held that the U.N. knew that Agenda 21 would be unpopular. The New American Magazine points out that some of the leading proponents of empowering the U.N. in the name of protecting  the global environment counsel their fellow activists to hide their true intentions.  J. Gary Lawrence, an adviser to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development, in a U.N. sponsored seminar in London stated, ” Participating in a U.N. advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy fixated groups and individuals in our society such as the National Rifle Association, citizen militias and some members of Congress. This segment of our society who fear “one world government” and a U.N. invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away, would actively work to defeat any elected officials who joined “the conspiracy” by undertaking LA,(Local Agenda)21.  So we call our processes something else, such as comprehensive planning,  growth management, or smart growth.”
My findings and postulates based on local observations;
The proposed local sand mining ordinance I studied came out of the town of Howard in Chippewa County in western and northwestern Wisconsin. I will tie this in later.
A. History Repeating
  • U.N. Agenda 21 and the Comprehensive Plan. Many locals  including numerous farmers eventually recognized the negative implications of  the comprehensive plan on land use. Numerous municipalities voted for the plan despite sometimes strong opposition.  Local governments  lured by dollars  funneling down from above, (federal, state, local) passed the plan, many times without even reading it. (A phenomenon that is far too common nowadays).
  • U.N. Agenda 21 and Private  Property Ownership.The following was asserted during a U.N. Conference on Human Settlements. “Land cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of  accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice;  if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole”.
  • U.N. Agenda 21 Affiliated Organizations. The American Policy Center indicates that Agenda 21 has manifested itself in a variety of local projects including Smart Growth, (Comprehensive Plan), the Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, STAR Sustainable Communities, and most “green” initiatives including green building codes.
B. International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, (I.C.L.E.I.)
  • ICLEI, according to its website spawned out of the U.N. in 1990. “The council was established when more than 200 local governments from 43 countries convened at our inaugural conference, the World Congress of Local Governments for a Sustainable Future, at the United Nations in New York”.
  • According to ICLEI’s website there are 6 municipalities in Wisconsin that are members of ICLEI. The town of Howard is one of them 
  • along with 
  • Fitchburg, Milwaukee, Madison, 
  • Marshfield (WOOD COUNTY)
  • and Oshkosh.
C. Wisconsin Towns Association, (WTA)  Convention and Frac Sand Workshop 1/3/2012.
  • On WTA’s website,  number 9 of 28 items on January 3rd’s agenda was a “Rules Petition on Crystalline Silica”, (Sand).  It’s a 35 page document with petitioners, including several Town of Howard officials, requesting The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, WDNR,  categorize sand as a pollutant. (It also talks about wood.)
  • Page 28 of this document contains the only reference to sand from agricultural activities being described as, “less pathogenic”.
The second most abundant compound on the planet is sand. Number one is water. These two components, along with numerous others, might be considered by some to be pretty important to life on this planet.  It baffles the mind as to the consequences of a mandate villainizing sand, but some that immediately come to mind might include,
  • Permits required to farm or disturb ground in any way.  Of course large corporate farms would be able to either pass along the costs or skirt the rules completely, but small to medium-sized farmers would be doomed. Oh, by the way, forget gardening.
  • Outdoor activity would have to be eliminated or at least kept to a minimum.  Again, most activity outdoors would cause respirable crystalline silica emissions which endanger the planet. For safety’s sake it would probably be better to herd everybody up and keep them in a secure facility so that their activities can be monitored. It’s for your own good and the good of the planet.
  • Eventually, the costs would get prohibitive for even the corporate mega farms. Rationing, food shortages, and starvation would be the order of the day but at least the dust would be kept to a minimum.
Obviously, in the previous section I’m using sarcasm to make a point. Many well-intentioned people are often times deceived by more sinister  elements who use popular agenda to promote their own plans which have no regard whatsoever for the common good.  A cautious, thoughtful, and educated approach is best when dealing with subjects such as this which seem relatively straight forward but can have far-reaching implications now and in the future.
