Georgia’s own 52-minute video on the ‘Agenda 21′ conspiracy

You think we’re done with people captured on video while listening to private groupthink? Ah, think again.

Mitt Romney wasn’t the first, and obviously won’t be the last.

Bryan Long of Better Georgia, a progressive group, sends the following 52-minute video of a session held at the Capitol for Republican state senators last month on Agenda 21, the alleged United Nations-driven conspiracy to harness private property through rezoning and planned-use ordinances passed by local governments.

The session was held Oct. 11. We have not checked their accounts, but we’re told that several senators claimed their per diem for attending the session. Long said his group delayed release of the video to avoid the media clutter of the presidential campaign. Watch it here:

Agenda 21 Full Video from Bryan Long on Vimeo.

The October meeting was called by Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock. In the foreground of the video, you can also see state Sens. Buddy Carter, R-Pooler, and Barry Loudermilk, R-Cassville.

The leader of the discussion is Field Searcy, a former member of the Georgia Tea Party. The videographer was ordered to stop recording after almost an hour – which he did. Then he was escorted out.

But the open camera captured an outline of the program – which identified the United Nations, some non-governmental organizations, state government entities and chambers of commerce as bad actors.

Very specifically, Searcy cited public/private partnerships, like the one that will be building extra lanes up I-75 and I-547, and the trend toward regional government, as unsuccessfully attempted in this summer’s TSPLOST vote, as evidence of the conspiracy.

“Our own governments are doing this. Our own local city councils and county commissions – they’re doing this,” Searcy says on the video. He referred to Agenda 21 a “conspiracy to transform America from the land of the free, to the land of the collective.”

Searcy declared Agenda 21 was being pushed through a form of brain-washing:

”The Delphi technique was developed by the Rand Corporation during the Cold War as a mind-control technique. It’s also known as ‘consensive process.’ But basically the goal of the Delphi technique is to lead is to lead a targeted group of people to a pre-determined outcome…..”

In Georgia, Searcy cited regulations issued by the state Department of Community Affairs, and a 2007 planning document adopted by the Cobb County Commission as specific examples of Agenda 21 regulation. Which means Attorney General Sam Olens, who was Cobb commission chairman during the period, might want to pay attention.

The program also featured a video by Dick Morris, the political analyst, who declared that President Barack Obama was attempting to drive populations from the suburbs to urban cores in order to further Agenda 21 concerns.

Is the same crowd that gets a few nuts jobs in each of 20 states to sign a petition for secession from the US, then claims that 20 states have petitioned to secede? Are they in bed with the “sovereign citizens” crowd?

Agenda 21 sustainable development is a REAL threat to property rights and freedoms taken for granted in the US. You might read my collection of references or watch the videos at http://www.tinyurl.com/HaltAgenda21 . Here in Lake County, FL, the planners and environmentalists pushed through a Comprehensive Land Use plan that added many usage restrictions to private land which reduced values. Fortunately, the Florida government shut down the central planning of the restrictions at the State level and told the County’s to decide on their own. Local voters through out two environmentalists and the new County commission settled on TWELVE lawsuits files regarding damage to property rights. So the local government is getting saner, but the Federal EPA is slamming people with many land restrictions due to “wetlands”, endangered species restrictions, etc so work continues. By the way, Bill Clinton is the one who ordered Federal agencies to fund and implement Agenda 21 (George Bush only signed the Agenda 21 non-binding document) via his Presidential Commission on Sustainable Development, and the agencies paid off the American Planner’s Association who wrote the legislative guide rolled out to most states and pushed through by planners and environmentalists. That is why most states, cities and counties have similar, damaging land use plans. Alabama has passed a law to outlaw implementation of Agenda 21, and Florida’s legislature is getting ready to do the same in first quarter 2013.

I have given more thought to the secession petitions and think they may be on to something but secession would be too difficult because each state would have to deal with a large minority of minorities which in turn might become majorities. I see tension and conflict. The better idea is partition and relocation. I think a separate country should be created for all Tea Party types and those who voluntarily choose to move with them. Then let’s give them some friendly territory, like for example, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming, and move them there, a one way ticket all expenses paid. Anyone in those areas that did not like the new folks and chose to move would then be moved to the areas vacated by the Tea Partiers (mainly the Old Confederacy), again all expenses paid. Those of us remaining would stay the United States of America and the Idaho bunch could become the Confederate States of America or just give them 3 separate states of Idaho, Utah and Wyoming. No special deals for them, however. They would have to negotiate trade, passports, all the deal that independent countries do. And the USA should be tough in bargaining since I don’t want to subsidize anything for these retards. Let them show us what makers do when they have no takers to exploit. Since the countries would be more uniform in beliefs there would be greater social harmony in both.

Gotta love James Kunstler:

http://kunstler.com/blog/2012/11/a-look-in-the-mirror.html

sample excerpt:

“The so-called Grand Old Party now faces a fugue of recrimination that could end in its demise. The party marginalized itself by becoming an alliance of corporate oligarchs with poorly-educated Southern suburban white trash religious fanatics, both using each other to browbeat the nation into transforming itself into kleptocratic theocracy… Consequently, a population of poor, ignorant crackers crawled out of the mud and dust to find themselves wealthy car dealers and strip-mall magnates in barely one turn of a generation. The transition being so abrupt, their cracker culture of xenophobia, “primitive” religion, and romance with violence came through intact. They were the perfect client group for a political party that styled itself “conservative,” as in maintaining the old timey ways. Toward the end of the 20th century, as the old northern states’ economies withered, and Yankee culture lost both footing and meaning, and poor white folks all over America looked with envy on the glitz of country music and Nascar, and gravitated toward the Dixieland culture of belligerent, aggressive suburbanization, religiosity, and militarism. This cartoon of the old timey ways swept the “flyover” precincts of the nation. Along in the baggage compartment was all the old John Birch Society cargo of quasi-supernatural ideology that appealed so deeply to people perplexed by the mystifying operations of reality.”

Next thing you know, the Republican leadership will put another amendment question on the ballot to adopt Agenda 21’s thesis. After all, our present constitution, adopted in 1983, has already been amended 72 times, so might as well make it 73. It worked for them in the Amendment 1 vote, once enough of the out-of-state contributors put together a bundle of money to assault the senses of metro voters. Power corrupts, and it also leads to very bad government and feeds the fears of citizens.

Too bad a majority of GA voters will cast a ballot for any politician, local, state or federal, that has an R in front of his/her name on the ballot. They equate the GOP with anti-minority, anti-government, and anti-tax positions. When in reality, the Repubs politicians are all about how much more money they can put in the pockets of big business. While at the same time, lining their own pockets of course.

This don’t matter. Our elected officials know what they’re doing. They all got an R next to their name, which means they’re working for the Lord, Our God, to protect us from the Godless commies and Islamofacists. You democrats can keep trying to destroy the land that Christ built but we, as the soldiers of the Lord’s Army, will defend it from the satanic forces such a the United Nations.

We do need a law to arrest the trouble making taking these videos. They’re doing nothing but getting people riled up. Like yelling ‘FIRE’ in a crowded movie theater, this type of trouble making should not be allowed. They should only be allowed to film people with their permission. Otherwise it’s a slippery slope to these democrats filming your child while she’s in the changing room at the mall and us not being able to do anything about it.

Agenda 21 a conspiracy? No but it is another failed program idea from the same people who brought us peace in the Middle East, Israel, Syria’s security council seat, and don’t forget gave numerous human rights abusing countries a seat at the human rights council. That right the UN, If it being done right it’s not being done at the UN.

So, the public private partnership designed to build a stadium for the falcons is a United Nations plot! I do have one question — most of those in the room were part of the cabal that insisted the state and all the agencies move towards public private partnerships — so is Rogers, Perdue, and everyone just a drone for the the UN?

Or as one of the Republican’s favorite sons said — “There you go again!”

The loonie right knows no bounds when it comes to Obama conspiracies. They continue to live in their Alternate Universe where real polls are skewed toward Democrats, all media except Fox is biased against them, and Agenda 21 is a threat to all things American.

They have successfully united the old Confederacy in their merry band. Congratulations! Between talk of self deportation, disdain for women’s issues, neanderthal views toward science including evolution and global warming, small government talk but big government actions on social issues like abortion and gay rights, Republicans are creating a nice little island of angry white men and their wives – while successfully alienating single women, Latinos, blacks, and young people.

So what is their answer? Move further to the right – and tilt against the windmills of Agenda 21. Unbelievable.

Yuck it up all you want lefties. This is more than “tinfoil hat” stuff. I am currently involved in a court case wherein Agenda 21 activists have come after me personally. An entity called a “land trust” has purchased 47 million acres of US land with Federal help and oversite. I committed the egregious area of paddling my Kayak about 30 yards up “their” stretch of river. Now I have charges pending. They are powerful and have many lawyers.

If our elected officials actually cared about our national sovereignty, our freedom, and our liberties, they would all already know about Agenda 21 and would already be standing up for our property rights, etc. Sadly, this UN plan falls right in line with the Progressive movement that has been destroying this nation since the late 1800’s. It might be easy to marginalize Chip and others with words like “conspiracy”, Tea Party, etc. but americans are waking up to the globalist agenda of the banking cartels, the corporatist businesses, and the world government folks. These types aren’t even bothing to hide their plans anymore because they have so many in politics on their side and the government schools and the media have done such a great job of brainwashing everyone into believing that this type of tyrrany is ok. Fortunately, even though so many are oblivious to this plan, plenty of conscientious americas are doing what they can to keep america free and sovereign (and restore what has been lost). Good job Chip.
