And since JUST after the election,, Obama has decided to re-engage with the UN and the Treaty that was turned down PRE election, things like AGENDA 21 below are now on the table. "ONE WORLD" sort of proposals, as if we have any extra money to take care of every third world nation right!????????


We have been hearing the rumors for quite some time, and they are showing their ugly heads to be true.

Preamble

1.1. Humanity stands at a defining moment in history. We are confronted with a perpetuation of disparities between and within nations, a worsening of poverty, hunger, ill health and illiteracy, and the continuing deterioration of the ecosystems on which we depend for our well-being. However, integration of environment and development concerns and greater attention to them will lead to the fulfilment of basic needs, improved living standards for all, better protected and managed ecosystems and a safer, more prosperous future. No nation can achieve this on its own; but together we can - in a global partnership for sustainable development.

1.2. This global partnership must build on the premises of General Assembly resolution 44/228 of 22 December 1989, which was adopted when the nations of the world called for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, and on the acceptance of the need to take a balanced and integrated approach to environment and development questions.

1.3. Agenda 21 addresses the pressing problems of today and also aims at preparing the world for the challenges of the next century. It reflects a global consensus and political commitment at the highest level on development and environment cooperation. Its successful implementation is first and foremost the responsibility of Governments. National strategies, plans, policies and processes are crucial in achieving this. International cooperation should support and supplement such national efforts. In this context, the United Nations system has a key role to play. Other international, regional and subregional organizations are also called upon to contribute to this effort. The broadest public participation and the active involvement of the non-governmental organizations and other groups should also be encouraged.

1.4. The developmental and environmental objectives of Agenda 21 will require a substantial flow of new and additional financial resources to developing countries, in order to cover the incremental costs for the actions they have to undertake to deal with global environmental problems and to accelerate sustainable development. Financial resources are also required for strengthening the capacity of international institutions for the implementation of Agenda 21. An indicative order-of-magnitude assessment of costs is included in each of the programme areas. This assessment will need to be examined and refined by the relevant implementing agencies and organizations.

1.5. In the implementation of the relevant programme areas identified in Agenda 21, special attention should be given to the particular circumstances facing the economies in transition. It must also be recognized that these countries are facing unprecedented challenges in transforming their economies, in some cases in the midst of considerable social and political tension.

1.6. The programme areas that constitute Agenda 21 are described in terms of the basis for action, objectives, activities and means of implementation. Agenda 21 is a dynamic programme. It will be carried out by the various actors according to the different situations, capacities and priorities of countries and regions in full respect of all the principles contained in the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development. It could evolve over time in the light of changing needs and circumstances. This process marks the beginning of a new global partnership for sustainable development.

* When the term "Governments" is used, it will be deemed to include the European Economic Community within its areas of competence. Throughout Agenda 21 the term "environmentally sound" means "environmentally safe and sound", in particular when applied to the terms "energy sources", "energy supplies", "energy systems" and "technology" or "technologies".

Yes im sure treatys and "deals" with those sworn to hate and kill us are going to work out swell.. I wonder how washington proposes to pay for any of that? The more we here about one world,, one power etc,, the scarier this all becomes. All one has to do is look back, at each and every attempt to help those third world nations such as the ME. Each and every time they have turned around and used any advancements against us, from guns to bombs to people to computers. And Now this admin seeks to further our dealings in countries weve no business dealing with. Take the time to read the whole of agend 21- you will be shocked.


and ill mention again how this treaty was already canned BEFORE the election, and is NOW back on the table.. Weve been LIED too,, again..

And the very fabric of our Nation is now being "changed" to include absolute dependence upon foreign countries from what guns you may have to how many children you should have to who pays for what- where. Some sort of "world union" that will be as effective as the UN- the biggest joke to ever be as MANY know. This is all strikingly scary to think of- yet these proposals are HERE! And we are essentially in debt to a point of no return- HOW can this even be seriously considered by ANY representative of the USA is beyond me..

The average Republican has no idea how to work with others.


Once the poster child for the GOP, NJ governor Christie is now on the GOP sh#t list for working with Obama when his state became a disaster zone.


When will they learn that the world is made up of people, and many are not white men.

Ron, why do Republicans hate women??

uhhmmm kind of a blanket statement .. I know many republicans none of whom hate women..

Romneys platform failed many republicans in truth.. Just as Obamas actions have failed his platform thus far.

No one i know thinks its the govts business in what a woman does to or with her body. That is up to her and her own convictions.

But Kman,, did you look at the posts above? This isnt about dem/repub, but about all of US, just as the NDAA 2013 bill is about US.


No partisanship here what so ever. Both are /have been involved in the shredding of the constitution.

OK Ron, Why do you hate to help those in need?

Here's the bolded text from your post:

1.4. The developmental and environmental objectives of Agenda 21 will require a substantial flow of new and additional financial resources to developing countries, in order to cover the incremental costs for the actions they have to undertake to deal with global environmental problems and to accelerate sustainable development.



And if all the Republicans you know love women, they why are they still Republicans when the GOP hates women??

If you keep reading the mindless, inflammatory swill from the John Birch Society, Grover Norquist's blog, and the clueless crew at American 'Thinker' you are just going to remain an open sore pumped full of so many lies and distortions you'll end up rabidly machine-gun posting complete bullshit on a rock climbing blog. Oops, too late.

H,, i notice you dont do a rebuttal of any of that, just me posting it. And of course deny it all as propaganda. Agenda 21 isnt propaganda, the UN treaty isnt propaganda and neither is the NDAA 2013. And the UN treaty was "supposedly" turned down BEFORE the election..

Again, 95% of it is all mindless bullsh#t, and when you wrap 5% of legitimate concerns in an enormous clusterf*#k of raging bullshit you just end up like DT and your valid points don't end up getting due consideration.

Ron, here's my take on U.N. Agenda 21: You couldn't fight for a more noble cause.

1.1. Humanity stands at a defining moment in history. We are confronted with a perpetuation of disparities between and within nations, a worsening of poverty, hunger, ill health and illiteracy, and the continuing deterioration of the ecosystems on which we depend for our well-being. However, integration of environment and development concerns and greater attention to them will lead to the fulfilment of basic needs, improved living standards for all, better protected and managed ecosystems and a safer, more prosperous future. No nation can achieve this on its own; but together we can - in a global partnership for sustainable development.

I understand you don't want to help others by actually paying for a better world ecosystem. However, consider that the GOP started two unfunded wars, and we're paying BILLION$, in not trillion$, on those wars.

Chew on that.

But you guys do keep it up - the harder you dig in the more likely it is the Whiteyhouse and Senate will remain in democratic hands and we'll slowly chip away at the House over the next 12 years. In fact, all disaffected, white males suffering from feelings of persecution and a victim-complex should harden their radical right positions so the tide in the house turns that much faster.

I'm all for dissing the asshats of both parties that got us into Vietnam, kept us in Vietnam, and that goes for the different asshats responsible for Iraq

We have to start prosecuting war crimes on the higher level people who lie and cheat to get us into war, or we just keep doing it

Peace

The Democrats and Republicans share about equal responsibility for getting the USA into the Vietnamese conflict, and for bungling it and the eventual withdrawal. And most of the victims were Viet, Laotian and Cambodian civilians.

Far from "your average", but certainly a sentiment represented by the "progressive" leadership.
