Don’t Know About Agenda 21?

Well maybe you should because Belmar is in it!

Please Google it and read about it.  It’s not real good.

Basically, it’s a plan, in the name of “global sustainability”, to do away with national sovereignty, personal sovereignty, property rights, free markets and even representative democracy and have the U.N. decide everything for all of us.  It would eventually pretty much eliminate everything that makes America special including our Constitution.  Even many rational Democrats are strongly opposing it.

Agenda 21’s outreach to local governments is called the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, or ICLEI.   It is also called “Local Governments for Sustainability“.

Here is a link to their FAQ page where they try to debunk what they call “conspiracy theories circulated about ICLEI and Agenda 21”.  After reading it, I am actually more convinced than ever that the ICLEI and Agenda 21 are serious threats to our American way of life.

Ocean County reacted to this U.N. plot to control the world by passing a 2012 resolution condemning Agenda 21 in very strong terms.

Belmar reacted too.  We became one of only seven towns in New Jersey crazy enough to have joined the ICLEI.  (Not sure what year.)

New   Jersey

  • Belmar
  • Clifton
  • Eatontown
  • Hamilton
  • Maplewood
  • Marlboro
  • Newark

As a matter of fact, our borough clerk is listed as a contact on the ICLEI website for any towns thinking of joining in the fun:

You know some of us in town still believe in the traditional American values of individual liberty, property rights, personal responsibility and non-negotiable national sovereignty.  We would prefer Belmar not be a part of anybody’s progressive, one-world government dream.

    Last year, when this mayor moved to have the entire town designated under redevelopment law and then went for the beachfront, I tried to educate residents
    using The Smart Growth Manual ( McGraw Hill ). Those seeking more indepth understanding should visit democrats against agenda21’s website.

    I am from the SF Bay Area where things are very far along with sustainability plans. ICLEI is insideous and diabolical. Here is a video of the ICLEI founders laughing at how they were going to go around Congress directly to implement things locally because they knew Congress would not approve.

    It is difficult getting our elected officials to read and understand what they rubber stamp……it is below their dignity and above their intelligence…….

    While I agree with all the above comments, Belmar should not be singled out as a community when you realize the the following cities are on the same listing as Belmar. New york city, Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angles, San Diego, Chicago,Sabn Francisco, Dallas.

    The authors of the list also take no responsibility for its accuracy if you read their disclaimer. I guess I would mostly have to agree with Mr. Creamer. Since this is a United Nations initiative it may have been presumed to be worthy……yes we should read and understand that which we endorse. As far as Northern California goes, my view generally is that anything they are supportive of we should be very careful of in this area.

    Yeah, and look who’s leading NYC, Phila, Chicago, etc.

    About the accuracy, April is listed as a contact on their own website.

    Also, if it’s UN initiative, I, myself, speaking for myself, presume it to be unworthy.

    I might add that I’m not sure when we joined up with these people. It might have been done by Ken Pringle.

    Of course Doherty could pull us out if he wanted to.
