We Need Some Rural Council(ing)

While we out mowing the lawn or working on our tans the President quietly & with no fanfare signed Executive order 13575.

President Obama signed his 86th executive order (13575) on June 9, which established the White House Rural Council (WHRC). According to The Blaze, the Executive Order seems to be in line with the United Nations radical
Agenda 21, as it is designed “to begin taking control over almost all aspects of the lives of 16 percent of the American people.”

In case you are unaware, the U.N.’s Agenda 21 proposes a global regime that will monitor, oversee, and strictly regulate our planet’s oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, aquifers, seabeds, coastlands, wetlands, forests, jungles, grasslands, farmland, deserts, tundra, and mountains.
It even has a whole section on regulating and “protecting” the atmosphere. It proposes plans for cities, towns, suburbs, villages, and rural areas. It envisions a global scheme for healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production, and consumption — in short, everything; there is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn’t fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21. Sounds great, right?

The mission and function of the WHRC (White House Rural Council), according to the Executive Order, is as follows: “The Council shall work across executive departments, agencies, and offices to coordinate development of policy recommendations to promote economic prosperity and quality of life in rural America, and shall coordinate my Administration’s engagement with rural communities.”

Why would they need to further engage with rural communities? I don’t hear a clamoring for that.

Executive Order 13575 asserts that the WHRC will “coordinate Federal efforts
directed toward the growth and development of geographic regions that encompass both urban and rural areas, and identify and facilitate rural economic opportunities associated with energy development, outdoor recreation, and other conservation-related activities.”

A full 25 governmental departments are involved with the “Rural Council”.

The Blaze reported, “It appears that not a single department in the federal government has been excluded from the White House Rural Council, and the wild card option in number 25 gives the president and the agricultural secretary the option to designate anyone to serve on this powerful council.”

Among the more notable members of the council are, Timothy Geithner (Treasury), Robert Gates (Defense), Eric Holder (Justice) (In case someone needs extra guns, I guess), Janet Napolitano (Homeland Security), Melody Barnes (Domestic Policy) & Valerie Jarrett (Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs).

Interestingly, Valerie Jarrett served as a member on the board of the Local Initiatives Support Coalition (LISC), which uses the language of Agenda 21 and ICLEI
[International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives] as their webpage descriptively explains the organization’s work to build “sustainable communities”.

Melody Barnes is the former Vice President of the George Soros-funded Center for American Progress. Soros is a prime advocate of Agenda 21 and in fact, his Open Society provided $2,147,415 to ICLEI.

As with everything else the regime does, I’m sure this is all just coincidental.

Once again; move along, nothing to see here!
