These are Steve’s picks for the last couple of weeks. Steve posts them by date; I have waited to post them to see how some things play out in order to organize them by topic. This gives a better picture of what actually happens; as in the issue regarding the state of Arizona and Agenda 21. After the first two links you will be taken directly to Junkscience.com which will have further links if you wish to follow them.
I would like to point out that a few years ago everyone was laughing at the idea that this is a worldwide socialist conspiracy. After all….we know there is no such thing as a conspiracy...right?
However, if the groups promoting all of this are socialistic in nature, including the environmental movement….actually especially the environmental movement; if the end result of imposing all of these regulations and policies will be overseen by the U.N. (clearly a socialist organ) and this will impose socialistic central planning worldwide; then why is it irrational to assume this is anything but a conspiracy to impose socialism worldwide? Apparently there are a great number of officials that believe this is what is actually happening.
As you read these articles that try to claim that there is nothing sinister about Agenda 21; that it is all some conspiracy nuts imagination; you may wish to ask yourself; is humanity being Keyser Sözed into believing no villain actually exists?”
Rep. Dennis Hedke, R-Wichita... noted that most U.S. citizens are unaware of the agenda or the implications of what he called a, “Massive attempt to restructure human activity on the planet.” “There is no other way to put it — this is the most aggressive attack on individual liberty and the foundations of our country we have ever seen.”
Agenda 21: What is it? What are its Goals? What would be the consequences?
Agenda 21 Conspiracy Theory or Threat
The battle over Agenda 21 is raging across the nation. City and County Councils have become war zones as citizens question the origins of development plans and planners deny any international connections to the UN’s Agenda 21. What is the truth? Since I helped start this war, I believe it is up to me to help with the answers. The standard points made by those who deny any Agenda 21 connection is that:
Local planning is a local idea.Well, first I have a few questions of my own that I would love to have answered.....
Agenda 21 is a non-binding resolution not a treaty, carries no legal authority from which any nation is bound to act. It has no teeth.
The UN has no enforcement capability.
There are no “Blue-Helmeted” UN troops at City Hall.
Planners are simply honest professionals trying to do their job, and all these protests are wasting their valuable time.
The main concern of Agenda 21 is that man is fouling the environment and using up resources for future generations and we just need a sensible plan to preserve and protect the earth. What is so bad about that?
There is no hidden agenda.
“I’ve read Agenda 21 and I can find no threatening language that says it is a global plot. What are you so afraid of?”
And of course, the most often heard response – “Agenda 21, what’s that?”
And after they have proudly stated these well thought out points, they arrogantly throw down the gauntlet and challenge us to “answer these facts.”

Henry Lamb: Agenda 21′s Role in America’s Financial Breakdown
For more than 20 years, now, the most powerful word in advertising has been “sustainable.” This term sells everything from toilet paper to spark plugs. This same term is even more powerful when applied to public policies such as: “sustainable” energy; transportation; agriculture; development; housing, and almost every other policy considered by government. When the term “sustainable” is used to sell a product, the product will be more expensive and less efficient than it has to be. When the term “sustainable” is used to sell a public policy, the policy will not only be more expensive and less efficient, it will be controlled by the government, and it will ultimately fail.
