The Problem

The UN’s Agenda 21 seeks to influence virtually the entire field of our private lives, including how we travel, what we eat, where and in what dwellings we live, what goods and appliances we buy and use, how we run our businesses and conduct economic trade, how many children we ought to have, and what options are available to us in childbirth and healthcare. And in all of these areas of our lives, the implicit objective is to mandate our compliance through authoritative force, regardless of how such mandates impact or infringe upon our rights as free individuals. In other words, these are not mere suggestions for our consideration; they are a comprehensive plan for imposing a certain way of life on us regardless of our consent or agreement.

Resistance is Not Futile

As dismal as this specter may be, there is a powerful means of halting its advance, and it is imperative that we apply it post haste. That means is the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, which provides that, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Thomas Jefferson and James Madison both asserted that state interposition or nullification is the “rightful remedy” for federal abuses of power that transgressed the Constitution, and that in such instances the states are “duty-bound” to pursue such a course. The same principle applies to the transgressions of global government.

In all matters that constitutionally fall within the legitimate sphere of state power, the states have the final say in how those issues will be decided within their respective jurisdictions. There remains, for the time being, sufficient power vested in the representatives of the people of North Carolina to reaffirm the primacy of our constitutional system and prevent the advancing domination of forced sustainability and the arbitrary governance of regionalism.

To be precise, the opportunity for us to act on this objective is NOW! Upon the May 16 opening of the Short Session of the North Carolina General Assembly, Representative Glen Bradley will introduce a Joint Resolution before the NC House. If the resolution passes with two-thirds support of the members present, Assembly rules allow him to introduce follow-up legislation, entitled, “An Act to Provide that North Carolina Shall Not Comply with ICLEI/Agenda 21,” capable of halting the advance of any Agenda 21/ICLEI-related efforts within North Carolina. It is urgent that we make Representative Bradley’s intent widely known, and that the people of North Carolina express to our State Representatives and Senators our adamant support for both his resolution and his bill.

The proposed bill states in part:
“Since the United Nations has enlisted the support of numerous independent, shadow organizations to surreptitiously implement “Agenda 21” around the world, the State of North Carolina and its political subdivisions are prohibited from implementing programs of, expending any sum of money for, being a member of, receiving funding from, contracting services from, or giving financial or other forms of aid to the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), or any of its related or affiliated organizations…”


If you live in North Carolina – act NOW. Not tomorrow or next week. Today, not tomorrow – right now.

4. EMAIL them – even if you call, you can still email too. Or just send them a firm but courteous email urging them to vote yes on this Resolution and Bill.

5. Report Back – when you get responses, let us know! We want people to be informed of what their delegates are saying and doing.
