To my fellow Democrats in the Oklahoma Legislature:
Concerns about UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development are spreading throughout the United States. Although you will hear that this is a right-wing position, in fact there are many Democrats across the nation who share these concerns. Loss of rights—private property and civil rights—are a concern of all Americans and are not partisan. As a registered Democrat since 1974, I have a different point of view from many others who oppose UN Agenda 21. My group, Democrats Against UN Agenda 21, is active in educating the nation on what it is, where it is, who is implementing it locally, and how to fight it. As the author of Behind The Green Mask: UN Agenda 21, I have been invited to lecture all over the United States, and expect to be in Tulsa this April. Your constituents in support of HB1412 have requested that I write to you about this important vote.
UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is a blueprint, the action plan to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, all education, all information, and all human beings in the world. It is a global plan but it is implemented locally. This comprehensive plan was agreed to by G. H. W. Bush in 1992 at the UN Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. You will hear that this is a non-binding agreement, that it is a dusty twenty year old document, or that it is a benign plan for the salvation of the planet. The truth is that it is dependent on artificial consensus, on manufactured democracy, on government by unelected boards and commissions, and on regionalization at the expense of local and state government. In fact UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is a green mask. Far from being a conspiracy theory, it is a fact, and has had tremendously negative impacts in nearly every town in the nation. Based on Communitarianism—the individual’s rights must be balanced with the rights of the community—Sustainable Development is at odds with our Constitution. The guarantees of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are considered to be selfish when ‘balanced’ with the undelineated and ever-changing rights of the undefined community, whether it is the local or the global community.
When Bill Clinton created the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in 1993 it was tasked with implementing UN Agenda 21 in the United States. The PCSD was made up of ten cabinet level secretaries, captains of industry (Ken Lay was on the PCSD), and environmental groups. Through administrative policy, mandates, grants, and law the ten federal agencies were able to weave UN Agenda 21 principles into our lives. Nearly all General Plans in the United States have adopted these principles and our local land use and policy has changed to reflect them. What this means for your constituents is that they struggle to stay in business, to farm, to build, and to own their property. They labor under regulations and laws that are designed to exhaust their resources and their energy. We all want clean air and water, but this is the green mask for the implementation of a global inventory and control plan: UN Agenda 21.
Through a UN-sponsored non-governmental organization, International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), the plan is brought into local towns and counties. This is an international membership organization that gives sample laws and policies to local governments, and then monitors their progress. ICLEI’s founders wrote part of UN Agenda 21 (Chapter 28), and prepared a guide The Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide, that is used in many US cities and counties to write the social, environmental, and land use elements of their General Plans.
We are witnessing the transformation of our government, schools, and legal system through the implementation of this comprehensive plan of action. People around the nation, and in the state of Oklahoma, are joining together in a non-partisan effort to KICK ICLEI OUT of our towns, cities, and counties, and to purge UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development principles from our local, state, and federal laws and regulations.
Oklahoma has an opportunity to pass a bill that reaffirms its commitment to the fundamental precepts upon which our nation was founded. As a nation we fought in a war for independence which joined people of differing religious beliefs, cultural origins, and political viewpoints in the birthing of liberty. This hard-worn battle must be fought every day in the halls of Congress and the Senate, and in the statehouses of every state in the Union.
I urge you to recognize that this battle is non-partisan, vital, and elemental to our continuing ideal of ourselves as a nation conceived in liberty and committed to the protection of our citizens. Please vote to support HB1412. Thank you.
