Citizen Control: United Nations global control of our economy, our country, our lives, our freedom

Open Government Partnership and United Nations Agenda 21

By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Monday, September 26, 2011image

As Americans are trying to make sense of and understand the multi-faceted United NationsAgenda 21, new information emerges daily. Signed by George Bush, and implemented through non-governmental organizations “sub-rosa” work since 1992, UN Agenda 21 grows at the local, state, and federal levels with new rules, regulations, executive orders, private-public partnerships, and declarations, accelerating the United States’ inclusion into one world government.

Aggressive advertising by compliant progressive media is brainwashing unsuspecting Americans that UN Agenda 21 is protecting theenvironment and, to oppose it, would mean opposing the preservation of the environment, the destruction of the fragile eco-system, rejection of alternative, green energy, and selfish neglect of their children’s future.

The recent Solar Decathlon 2011(September 23-October 2) presented by the U.S. Department ofEnergy, in concert with several universities (Purdue, Middlebury College, Florida International, Ohio State, University of Maryland, University of Tennessee, Rutgers, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, University of Massachusetts, the City College of New York, Hampton University, Old Dominion University, the Southern California Institute of Architecture, California Institute of Technology, University of Calgary, Team China, Team Belgium, New Zealand’s Victoria University of Wellington, and University of Illinois) has displayed at West Potomac Park near the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C. exhibits showcasing how “to create an energy-efficient home, selecting and operating a solar-electric system, andbuilding a more sustainable future.”

The entire exhibit is tailored for “green building professionals.” Never mind that Solyndra, the California-based solar panel maker filed for bankruptcy protection on September 6 and fired all its 1,100 employees. With much White House fanfare, Solyndra received a $535 million loan guarantee, which was later granted by the Obama Administration. Private investors forked more than $1 billion into the company. It is alleged that investors and executives with Solyndra were substantial donors to Obama’s campaign and had spent large sums on lobbying.

Two other companies working on “alternative energy,” the darling phrase of liberals, have filed for bankruptcy because they could not compete with China’s subsidized solar panels and demand was low. Both companies received money from the $800 billion stimulus.

Solar panels have been subsidized by our federal government and states have given subsidies to taxpayers in the form of tax write-offs for the installation of solar panels. Cliff Stearns (R-Florida) said, “So I think the administration is on this fervent religion of green jobs and clinging to the idea that solar panel is the answer and it is not the answer.”

Fox News reported that Evergreen Solar Inc. received “$5.3 million of stimulus cash through a state grant to install 11,000 photovoltaic panels at 11 colleges and universities, a recycling facility, and an education center in Massachusetts.”

SpectraWatt from New York, a solar cell company, received a $500,000 grant from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory from the stimulus package to improve solar cells without changing current manufacturing process.

Never mind that close to twenty percent of the labor forced is unemployed and cannot afford to pay for the homes they currently own and rent, much less purchase solar panels. Through Agenda 21 requirements, Americans will eventually have to build or retrofit their homes with solar energy in order to meet the United Nations green agenda.

UN Agenda 21 is building through ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) and its 600 affiliates in the United States the infrastructure of the new “green” alternative energy, solar and wind, while discouraging the use of fossil fuels such as oil, coal, and natural gas.

Under the noble mantra of saving the earth, the United Nations wants to change the way we live, eat, learn, communicate, move by controlling the economy, the environment, our health, and private property in the name of social equity (social justice). The ultimate goal is to have a one-world government under the aegis of the United Nations, controlled by a handful of individuals.

To bring us ever closer to this goal, world leaders congregated on September 20 at New York City’s Waldorf Astoria hotel in advance of the United Nations General Assembly, in order to formally launch a new initiative called the Open Government Partnership. During the day of discussion, they unveiled and signed the “declaration of principles.”

President Obama called at last year’s General Assembly for “specific commitments to promote government transparency.” Eight countries have endorsed the Open Government Partnership on September 20, 2011 and are publicly releasing open government plans:

  • Brazil
  • Indonesia
  • Mexico
  • Norway
  • Philippines
  • South Africa
  • United Kingdom
  • United States.

Under Increase the availability of information about governmental activities, which sounds benign and helpful to taxpayers, the first sentence is chilling. “Governments collect and hold information on behalf of people, and citizens have a right to seek information about governmental activities.”

Under Support Civic Participation, one sentence stands out. “We commit to protecting the ability of not-for-profit and civil society organizations to operate in waysconsistent with our commitment to freedom of expression, association, and opinion.” What happens when citizens’ opinions diverge from their commitment to freedom of expression?

Under Implement the highest standards of professional integrity throughout our administration, the commitment to have “robust anti-corruption policies” is scary. “We commit to maintaining or establishing a legal framework to make public information on the income and assets of national, high ranking public officials.” This brings to mind the economic police we used to have under communism. If a person’s income was reported by informants as excessive, the culprits were arrested, fined, and their excess-capacity goods or income confiscated. According to this principle, an informant would be protected. “We commit to enacting and implementing rules that would protect whistleblowers.” There will be “anti-corruption prevention and enforcement bodies.”

United Nations global control of our economy, our country, our lives, our freedom

Under Increase access to new technologies for openness and accountability, it is obvious that the public is encouraged and expected to snitch. “We commit to developing accessible and secure online spaces as platforms for delivering services, engaging the public, and sharing information and ideas.”

Although this signed declaration is non-binding and voluntary, thirty more countries are expected to join. The most astonishing detail is the fact that one of the “featured, leading private sector, non-profit and government innovators in the 21st century” is Socrata, Kenya’s Open Government Portal.

“We commit to espouse these principles in our international engagement, and work to foster a global culture of open government that empowers and delivers for citizens, and advances the ideals of open and participatory 21st century government.” I thought we elected officials and hired bureaucrats to run our government. When did we turn into a participatory 21st government?

One more step towards a complete United Nations global control of our economy, our country, our lives, our freedom, and the erasure of our sovereignty with complete acquiescence of our government’s signatory.
