(Tara Dodrill) While the mainstream media has ignored the freedom-infringing nature of Agenda 21, the world’s leaders and the United States have passed another “biodiversity” plan which many are calling the current program’s “evil twin.”
The newest program is called Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, and it was passed this fall by United Nations members with barely a mention on any mass media outlet. The Heartland Institute think tank calls it a “rebooting” of Agenda 21, and it has the full support of the Obama administration.
“2015 is a pivotal year for global development,” the White House said in a statement. “The adoption of the 2030 Agenda, which sets out a global development vision and priorities for the next 15 years, captures the hopes and ambitions of people around the globe for meaningful change and progress, including here in the United States.”
The Heartland Institute even calls Agenda 2030 “Agenda 21 on steroids,” and the document itself seems to acknowledge that.
“This is an Agenda of unprecedented scope and significance,” the Agenda 2030 preamble states. “It is accepted by all countries and is applicable to all, taking into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities.”
Agenda 2030 has 17 goals, some of which may seem innocent on the surface but which, once implemented, will erode liberty, said Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center. For example, the first goal is to end poverty everywhere.
“The only answer the plan offers for eliminating poverty is redistribution of wealth,” DeWeese wrote at AmericanPolicy.org. “The document calls for ‘equal rights to economic resources.’ That means government is claiming an absolute power to take away anything that belongs to you to give to whomever it deems more deserving.”
Another goal is to “make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.”
“This is Smart Growth which promises a utopia of families and neighbors playing and working together, riding bikes, walking to work in stress free communities,” DeWeese wrote. “It really means the end of private property rights, single family homes, and stack and pack high rises where residents are over taxed, over regulated, rents are high and individual thoughts and actions are viewed as a threat to the “well-ordered society.”
Sustainable development, the preamble says, is the primary goal.
“All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan,” it reads. “… We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind.”
Agenda 21 was launched in 1992, with the United States government a signatory to the “voluntary, non-binding” action plan.
“While Agenda 21 focused mainly on the environment, Agenda 2030 encompasses far more and is touted to be the ‘new universal agenda’ for humanity,” Nancy Thorner and Bonnie O’Neil of the Heartland Institute and the Illinois Review wrote. “It professes to be an altruistic plan that will benefit future generations. The reality, however, is that U.N. Agenda 2030 will rob individuals of most every freedom through its imposed mandates.”
They added that “American citizens need to wake up to the fact that their American sovereignty is being challenged by the United Nations.”
The Agenda 2030 plan clearly states that it is a “new universal agenda” for all of humanity.
Even though the phrase “Agenda 21” remains largely unfamiliar to the vast majority of Americans, its dictates are already impacting their lives. More than 500 cities and towns across the country have passed some version of the global biodiversity plan as enacted by the United Nations.
Agenda 2030: Official USA Policy as of ‘Yesterday’!
Our Socialist President, Barrack Obama, has officially committed America to the Agenda 2030 philosophy. This commitment occurred yesterday, Sunday, September 27, 2015. Few Americans are aware or care! This means that Capitalism is now officially OVER and the agenda of the United Nations will prevail going forward. Starting in January 2016 (in three months) America will be committed to Communism as its official policy. Read the U.N. Agenda 2030 development goals for all the details: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld. Communism and a New World Order is the agenda and historical Capitalism is now OVER. What a change has developed…with few Americans aware of this significance!
President Obama addresses the United Nations on 9/27/2015!
Yes, Sunday, September 27/28 (also the day of the 4th Blood Moon and the beginning of Sukkot) was the time for our Socialist President to announce the most significant change in American philosophy since its Declaration of Independence in 1776. Our founding Fathers would turn over in their graves if they were living souls. But they are gone and we now live in a New Age of Central Planning and Global Communism. Few comprehend the significance of this change and what it all means. Tribulation must follow as all these policies mean that our current system must collapse and reemerge under Central Planning and Communism. The beginning of the End has arrived!
It’s all smiles for the elite but emerging SLAVERY for the many! What a change!
Our Global Pope (Pope Francis) initiated this new Agenda 2030 and our American President has now committed all Americans to this new Agenda and its goals. It would be wise for every reader of this missive to read the details of this agenda and their goals. Do this now at: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld. What I now realize is that we citizens and voters do not determine the real PHILOSOPHY which rules over us. Our leaders will impose their Agenda upon all via their decisions. Voters are mere ponds with little input on the BIG issues of policy!

UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) — U.S. President Barack Obama on Sunday committed the U.S. to achieving global development goals at a United Nations summit, vowing to reduce inequality and create opportunities around the world.
“In doing so, we recognize that our most basic bond — our common humanity — compels us to act,” Obama said at the three-day Sustainable Development Summit that ended here at the UN Headquarters in New York Sunday.
On Friday, world leaders adopted at the summit the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030.
Obama said the world suffers no illusions of the challenges ahead in achieving the goals, but “we understand this is something that we must commit ourselves to.”
In his defense of the 15-year plan, Obama said some 800 million people are scraping by on less than 1.25 U.S. dollars a day and billions of people are at risk of dying from preventable diseases.
In his address, the U.S. President also warned against bad governance and inequality, among others, which threaten the achievement of the ambitious goals.
“Governments have to embrace transparency and open government and rule of law,” Obama said, calling for combating corruption, illicit finance and promoting civil society groups.
Another report says the following: http://www.ibtimes.com/united-nations-2030-agenda-president-obama-joins-world-leaders-aim-eradicate-poverty-2115911
President Barack Obama joined with world leaders Sunday to commit to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The adoption of the framework, announced at the United Nations General Assembly, means the U.S. will join other nations to eradicate extreme poverty and adopt sustainable policies with long-term impact.
Over the next 15 years, the agenda aims to eradicate poverty and hunger, protect the environment, promote human rights and gender equality, empower women, strive for peaceful and inclusive societies and fight against inequalities. It is the culmination of two years of consultation and development.
Conclusion: The significance of this decision by our Socialist President (without any prior consultation with our Congress or the American people) reveals how our World works. The people are not in control and never have been. We the people are mere ponds in the hands of our corrupt elite…who rule over us. We have no input into these World Changing Events. What a farce on the intelligence of voters who can not discern what is happening. Communism, a failed philosophy, will now be gradually implemented for the entire planet. Central Planning will be the modus operandi. We are all serfs and slaves of our corrupt financial system and our corrupt policymakers. But who cares? Think for yourself!

- Letter from the Co-Facilitators of the intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda (dated 11 August 2015)
Preamble This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognise that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. They seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals and complete what these did not achieve. They seek to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental. The Goals and targets will stimulate action over the next fifteen years in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet: (this is not supportive of the philosophy of America’s Founding Fathers or for Individual Freedom and Prosperity)
ECLAC Economic Commission for Latin America and : Defends the Role of Planning for Successfully Implementing the 2030 Agenda
11/18/2015 | 05:46pm US/Eastern http://www.4-traders.com/news/ECLAC-Economic-Commission-for-Latin-America-and–Defends-the-Role-of-Planning-for-Successfully-Impl–21432008/
The Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), Alicia Bárcena, defended today the role of planning in changing economic and social structures and successfully implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. She spoke at the inauguration of the XIV Conference of Ministers and Heads of Planning of Latin America and the Caribbean in Yachay (Ecuador), where she was joined by Ecuador’s National Secretary for Planning and Development, Sandra Naranjo.
‘We need you to help us imagine 2030,’ said the senior United Nations official before representatives from 18 of the region’s countries and international organizations. ‘You can be the great participants who develop political agreements with a long-term view and a culture of collective development. The State must outline this strategic vision and ensure the provision of public goods,’ Alicia Bárcena stressed.
The 2030 Agenda, which has 17 goals and 169 targets and was approved in September by 193 countries at the United Nations General Assembly, has a ‘civilizing character since it puts people at the center and cares for the planet,’ she explained. She cited as examples the goals for eradicating poverty-‘the only acceptable poverty figure is zero,’ she said-and for fighting climate change (‘it is possible that we will be the last generation that can do something to revert it,’ she warned).
According to Alicia Bárcena, planning is also necessary to confront the ‘tectonic changes’ occurring at a global level, such as the reorganization of international politics and of the global economy in new trade blocs; the decoupling of the financial economy and the productive economy; the alteration of migrant flows; and vulnerability in the face of climate change.
During her welcoming remarks, Ecuador’s National Secretary for Planning and Development, Sandra Naranjo, defended the role of planning and the stewardship of the State and recalled that Yachay, where the meeting is being hosted, is a city planned for thinking. Naranjo also said that good investment, both in the social and infrastructure spheres, is the best way to save and to boost growth.
During the meeting officials will present a summary of the document The State of the Art and Challenges of Planning for Development in Latin America and the Caribbean, the result of an ongoing study by the Latin American and Caribbean Institute for Economic and Social Planning (ILPES), to get feedback from countries and prepare a broader version to be published in 2016.
After this meeting, on Thursday, November 19, the XV Meeting of the Regional Council for Planning will take place at the Yachay Tech University. This council is an intergovernmental subsidiary body that orients the activities of the ILPES and whose sessions coincide with the Conference of Ministers. At this gathering, which will be closed to the public and will be intergovernmental in nature, officials will review the activities carried out by the ILPES in 2014 and 2015 along with the working program for the 2016-2017 period, which will include a proposal on training regarding the 2030 Agenda.
