WND Exclusive – U.N.’s Agenda 21 partially to blame for rapid spread of virus

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

When pandemics strike, logically where will they do the most damage? Of course, in areas with the highest concentration of population. It’s no different than any disaster or frankly even a war. During World War II, for example, bombing cities obviously inflicted much more damage and hardship than striking farmland.

Looking at any map of coronavirus concentration, it’s plain to see where the outbreak spikes are occurring.

If you guessed in most major cities, you’d be correct. This is a perfectly logical and reasonable conclusion, even before looking at a map. After all, a close-proximity communicable virus will spread more effectively with a population that must remain in, well, close proximity. read more

Arabic as a Second Language

Arabic Mandated in New York Public Schools is a Step Toward the Islamization of America

by:

I’m all for learning a new language, even Arabic. I have a good friend who is studying Arabic so he can debate with Muslims in their own language. When I was in high school in the 1960s, some students took Russian. It wasn’t mandated.

Many Europeans know several languages. English is one of the most prevalent second languages around the world. When my wife and I traveled through China last year, we ran into people from all over the world who spoke English, including many Chinese. There was no need to know how to speak Arabic.

I’m a little suspicious when an upper Manhattan public elementary school mandates that its students study Arabic. I wonder what would have happened if the school had mandated that students learn Hebrew.

Beginning next semester, all 200 second- through fifth-graders at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights will be taught Arabic twice a week, the same amount of time allotted to science and music courses. There’s a good chance that Arabic will be mandated in other schools. (Why science isn’t being taught every day is a mystery to me.)

One reason Principal Nicky Kram Rosen selected Arabic — as opposed to more common offerings, such as Spanish or French — is because she claims it will help the school obtain a prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) standing.

I suspect that the IB program is more about the Islamization of America than anything else. The IB program is a UN/Agenda 21 Trojan Horse. A study of the IB program will show that there is an attempt “to put a ‘more Islamic face’ on the IB curriculum.”

Muslims are pushing Shariah law in the United States and fighting anyone who opposes them. The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) contacted Muslims to contact Kansas Governor Sam Brownback to ask that he not sign a bill that sponsors admitted was designed to stop the equalization of Shariah with our present legal system. The bill had broad legislative support and the governor signed it into law. There’s no doubt that CAIR will take the new legislation to the courts.

According to Angela Jackson, CEO of the Global Language Project, “Arabic has been identified as a critical-need language,” citing students’ future “career trajectories.” A critical need for what? What careers? Americans rarely go to school in Arabic-speaking nations. Arabic-speaking students come to America to get educated, many of whom then go back home to figure out how to bring down America.

The goal of the IB program is to soften up American school children to accept another pluralistic internationalist agenda.

V. I. Lenin may or may not have actually said that “the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them,” but whoever said it understood the foolishness of many American educators, politicians, and liberal do-gooders. Here is a New York elementary school opening the door so the Islamic worldview can walk right and spread their propaganda unhindered. (Editors note: I believe it was actually Nikita Khrushchev who said the above statement)

Setting the Agenda

by: Kathleen Marquard & the Common Constitutionalist

Pop Quiz: Who said this? Marx, Lenin, Mao, Michael Moore?

“Global sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.”

Nope. It was Professor Maurice Strong and he was just one of the speakers at the Agenda 21 summit.

In 1992, twenty years ago this summer, Agenda 21/Sustainable Development was unveiled to the world at the UN’s Earth Summit in Rio.

In his opening remarks at the ceremonies at the Earth Summit, Maurice Strong stated: “The concept of national sovereignty has been an immutable, indeed sacred, principle of international relations. It is a principle, which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation. It is simply not feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally by individual nation states, however powerful. The global community must be assured of environmental security.”

Sheesh! Take away the environmental crap and it sounds like Woodrow Wilson could have penned it.

George H.W. Bush was in Rio for the ceremonies and graciously signed on for America so that our overburdened Congress wouldn’t have to spend the time reviewing the document, thus learning then, what dastardly deeds were in store for us — that protecting the environment would be used as the basis for controlling all human activity and redistributing our wealth.

A year later Clinton established his President’s Council for Sustainable Development, which would embed the guidelines of Agenda 21 into public policy to be administered by the federal government via all departments. In doing this, Bush(41) and Clinton set up Agenda 21 as ruling authority, i.e., implementing a U.N. plan to become U.S. policy across the whole nation and bleeding into every county and town. And both succeeding presidents have evidently fully endorsed and implemented Agenda 21 through every department of the federal government.

Here is how the UN described Agenda 21 in one of its own publications in a 1993 article entitled “Agenda 21: The Earth Summit Strategy to Save our Planet: “Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by EVERY person on Earth…it calls for specific changes in the activities of ALL people… Effective execution of Agenda 21 will REQUIRE a profound reorientation of ALL humans, unlike anything the world has ever experienced.”

So, it sounds as if we may have to make some minor changes to our lifestyle.

In simple terms, Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is the end of civilization as we know it. It is the end of private property, the elevation of the collective over the individual. It is the redistribution of America’s wealth to the rest of the world (actually the global elites and progressive intellectuals); it is the end of the Great American Experiment and the Constitution.

Before we go any further, I know what you’re thinking. It’s been in effect since 1993, but I don’t see any drastic changes to this country. What’s the big deal? Remember this; National Healthcare was first proposed by Teddy Roosevelt. I’ll give Progressives props; they don’t give up. They’ll just keep pushing their agenda through generations and the foundation has already been laid.

According to its authors, the objective of Agenda 21/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 (the 3Es of sustainability – Social Equity; Economic Prosperity; and Ecological Integrity). They insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.

You will need to memorize these new vocabulary words if you are to be a good citizen of the world:

Open space, smart growth, smart food, smart buildings, regional planning, walkable, bikeable, foodsheds, viewsheds, consensus, partnerships, preservation, stakeholders, land use, environmental protection, development, diversity, visioning, social justice, heritage, carbon footprints, comprehensive planning, critical thinking, community service.

After reading this laundry list of Agenda 21 words, you may now see that some have already found their way into our lexicon. Those who control the language, control the argument, thus control the agenda.

This is not just policy but a complete restructuring of life as we know it. We not only will be taught how we must live, but where we are allowed to live; how many children we may have; taught how to think and what is acceptable thinking; told what job we will be allowed to have; taught how we can worship and what we will be allowed to worship; and we (especially our children) will be brainwashed into believing that the individual must cede all to the collective.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Private property and free-market economics will be replaced by public private partnerships and a planned central economy. Social justice will usurp individual rights. Social justice is described as the right and opportunity of all people “to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment.” – in other words, the redistribution of wealth. This will be achieved through an organizational structure of land use controls; control of energy and energy production; control of transportation; control of industry; control of food production; control of development; control of water availability; and control of population size and growth. And all will be decreed under the guise of environmental protection and sustainability.

Agenda 21 is nothing more than worldwide centralized command & control. They only wish to control all aspects of our lives. Is that too much ask?
