What’s in your back yard? How much land do you own? How much electricity and water do you consume? You’d better not be hogging a resource or misusing it, you selfish American.
Soon, the city or town where you reside may join the ranks of others that adhere to policies for global sustainable development set by the United Nations and its Agenda 21.
The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) is a tool being used to implement Agenda 21 at the local level. You and your private property will be subject to its mandates if your city town or county becomes a member of ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability USA. 1
What this means for Americans is that resources previously belonging to us – obtained through the sacrifices of our forefathers – may soon belong to the world. Remember the phrases “spread the wealth” and “economic justice”? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Missing from the jubilant “world opinion” over the brutal murder and torture of the moderate Libyan leader is an analysis of Libyan street opinion. I think I know why no one is talking to them.

It was supposed to be all about the Libyan people. Remember? Yet missing in all the news on the subject of Libya are
1–the reaction of the LIBYAN PEOPLE to the rising specter of Sharia law. (Wasn’t it they whom we so bravely bombed residential areas to “save”?). They have had 40 years of a moderate Western-style judiciary. But they were lured by Western propaganda to seek “democracy” by overthrowing their moderate leader. The narrative was that they would be free, with a strong suggestion that Western style democracy was on the way. Now some are certainly already seeing that their new unelected Sharia law-advocating “leader,” the favorite of the Western Colonial Empire, is far from the freedom they expected.

Government dependency is replacing the illegal drug trade as the most destructive force in our country. Politicians are the counterparts to the drug kingpins, as are their appointed bureaucrats to the pushers and enforcers. We welcome them into our homes, neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and allow them to infiltrate every corner of society. The pushers and enforcers that feed our addiction to big-government money, exhibit many of the same traits and tactics as drug dealers. The idea of getting more and more people hooked is the same; assuring millions of mindless users for life. Not to mention, they offer career employment opportunities for the kingpins and pushers.
You can’t say I didn’t warn you: Libya’s new leader wants sharia law.
by Don Hank
Newsmax just now reported that the new unelected leader of Libya is a strong proponent of Sharia law – in contradistinction to the moderate Ghadaffi whom we just murdered.
Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the favorite of NATO, the EU, David Cameron, Nicolas Sarkozy and most other European leaders, as well as of Obama, “laid out a vision for the post-Gadhafi future with an Islamist tint, saying Islamic Sharia law would be the ‘basic source’ of legislation and existing laws that contradict the teachings of Islam would be nullified.”

When the banks crashed in 2008, smart people on the Right figured out that the CRA (Community Reinvestment Act, which forced banks to lend more money to the “underserved communities”) had something to do with it.
A lot was said and written about the CRA and the case against it looked pretty airtight.
But then leftwing analysts wrote damage control commentaries supposedly showing that the CRA played only a minuscule role. They argued, among other things, that the CRA was enforced only on certain banks while others did not have to comply.
… An Editorial Board opinion from a TBP member
I strongly agree that it is time for the states to rein in the federal government. As our constitutional instructor/president should know, the U.S. Constitution is a document of limitation. The Constitution is literally an agreement between the states, creating the federal government for certain specific purposes, granting specific powers to achieve those purposes, and reserving all other powers to the states. In very broad terms, the general purpose of the Constitution is to provide for the physical security of the nation, portray a unified face to the world, and regulate the dealings between the states - not the lives of individual citizens. Over the course of time, unfortunately, the principles underlying the Constitution have been so perverted that the current federal government would likely be unrecognizable to our founding fathers. The result is the current system of selective enforcement of our nation's laws, driven in large part by political concerns and preservation of individual power. In short, a ruling class rather than a citizenry legislature and informed electorate.
