What is Agenda 21?

If you were to hear that in the very near future the United States will have no privately owned property, no air conditioning, no dams, no paved roads, no way to correct rivers for flood control, no golf courses, no pastureland used for grazing, would you believe it?

These are all mandates of a United Nations program called Agenda 21 which was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. All delegates watched as four men, holding poles attached to an “Ark of Hope” which contained this Agenda 21 document! Within its pages are a substantial attack on the American Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. The primary target for the changes proposed in 1992 is the United States of America.  
Here is a list of some of their “Unsustainable” Targets:

Page Number

Unsustainable =We will take this away!


Ski runs


Grazing of livestock


Disturbance of soil surface-plowing of soil, building fences


Commercial Agriculture-Modern farm production, chemical fertilizers, fossil fuels, etc.


Any Industrial activity


“Human-made caves of brick and mortar (single family homes)


Paved and tarred roads, Railroads, floor and wall tiles


Technology, range lands, fish ponds, plantations or rangelands


Harvesting timber and modern hunting


Logging activities


Dams and reservoirs, straightening of rivers


Power line construction


Economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.


What is Agenda 21?It is clear that AGENDA 21 is designed to replace the economic and social structure of the United States. The first version of the Declaration of Independence used the phrase “Life, Liberty and Property” and was changed to “Pursuit of Happiness” so that non-landowners could aspire to ownership, thus happiness.
According to the United Nations, the objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity.

Biodiversity is a key component of the UN Agenda 21. Through this “word” an entire program is created and being implemented without Congressional approval or American Voter involvement through Non-Government Organizations such as “Envision Central Texas” where members are selected through appointment, not elections. These NGOs are granted authority by Federal Executive Orders and Agency Regulations to control much of our daily lives. End result is the BIODIVERSITY MAP that has 85% of the United States uninhabited!


Combined with Public-Private Partnerships and NGOs (Texas.org shows thousands of these entities in Texas,) we have a “created underworld” of government designed to eliminate the checks and balances of the American citizens.
Operations like WILDLANDS PROJECT and WETLANDS PROJECT are samples of how a citizen can lose rights to property, required to pay taxes for the “ownership” without having any say in how that property is to be used and therefore, making this land unsellable!

President George H.W. Bush called Agenda 21 and UN Charter “Sacred Principles” and called on all Americans to pledge allegiance to these same principles!

President Clinton, in 1993, issued an Executive Order requiring EVERY FEDERAL OFFICE to implement the principles of Agenda 21 in all possible areas of authority! ALL subsequent presidents reinforced these orders and Barack Hussein Obama has issued more executive orders to expand on this non-constitutional regulatory reduction of liberty.
These “Sacred Principles” are expressed as the “Triple Bottom Line” or the “Three E’s.” 


Social EQUITY or Social INJUSTICE. Agenda21 intends to restructure Human nature through Law and Regulation. The agency created to bring Agenda21 down to the local city and county of the United States and the rest of the world is the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives (hereafter referred to as ICLEI) and have offices in every State of the United States!

Social justice is defined as the right and opportunity of all people “to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment.” As preached by the current President Barack Hussein Obama, this includes redistribution of wealth. Agenda21 proclaims that private property is a social injustice since only those owning property are able to benefit or build wealth from it. National sovereignty is a social injustice. Lack of universal health care is a social injustice.


Economic Prosperity is defined in the preamble of Agenda21, “The developmental and environmental objectives of Agenda 21 will require substantial flow of new and additional financial resources to developing countries.”

This thinking is based on the failed belief that the wealth of the world was made at the expense of the poor, forcing them to be poorer while the rich got richer! The United States was founded on the premise that individual freedom, free market economics would benefit all by raising the living level of all. The ability to succeed in America was open to all “Equality of opportunity,” not equality of results!

I believe this all is intended to centralize all financial and political power into the hands of the elite few who will be the government for the world, The UN.


“Sustainable Development” is, simply, the vehicle of the United Nations to remove the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution from the legal foundation of the United States. The Cato Institute, in 2002, stated, “This fact alone casts a serious shadow of doubt on the motives of Sustainable Development planners who would discard the unalienable rights to life, liberty and property in order to pursue dubious programs!”

The Agenda21 is nothing less than an Anti-Human Initiative. By using the three E’s to sell the Agenda21 plans, the major attack point on America is though the educational system and the capture of children’s minds and bending them into “global citizens” and instruction that is designed to “broaden their loyalties to a world-wide society” or as Hillary Clinton states, “It takes a Village!”

Outcome based education (OBE) and School to Work (STW) programs are major efforts being adopted in school systems nation-wide. Straight from the Soviet Union, schools are using the tax funds to operate indoctrination centers to foster “World Citizenship” and “Environmental Responsibility.” Nazi mandates were similar in turning children against parents by “exposing the failure of parents” to adhere to the “Consensus” of the State. The State now being promoted is the United Nations.

Most of these people are what Lenin called “Useful Idiots” in they do not try to identify if actions and votes they make are within the framework of the United States or State of Texas Constitutions. For political and financial reasons (Block Grants, etc.), they sign away the freedoms that generations have died to preserve!

In Closing, Agenda21 is an octopus with millions of tentacles squeezing the very life of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution from our God-given unalienable rights. Each tentacle or program, such as Smart Meters, Smart Growth or LEED Building Codes comes to each of our homes and reaches out through City, County, State and Federal agencies, never “needing” citizen approval or congressional oversight!
