The Local Movement Compromised

It has been proven to me, we live in a world where White can mean Black and 2+2 can equal 5. Think Global act Local… Sounds positive. Is it?

Who is ICLEI? International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives What do they do? They are an NGO that specializes in regional “sustainable development” helping local governments and town councils implement Agenda 21. If you don’t know what The Agenda for the 21st Century is, I would advise you to look into it. It is an all-encompassing UN Action Plan (1992). Under chapter 27 section 6+8 they purpose to give power to NGOs in ALL levels of policy making in order to implement this plan of “sustainable development”. The other part of this big plan is in the UN Global Biodiversity Assessment Report.

I am not getting into all that this action plan does, it is basically a Global plan implemented on a Local level by “Non Government” fronts, who implement UN Policies that take control of our representative government and put it into the hands of regional, non-elected boards. Full article Here

Real Solutions to Fix Our Toxic Mistakes

We have low-cost simple technology that can change the precarious situation here on planet Earth. Living (eco) machines, compost tea and oyster mushrooms can REVERSE the trends of toxicity. Here is a very interesting presentation by John Todd at UVM…though, I am not so sure about backing a global currency with carbon. Its a long video, but it is a glimpse of the top research on bio-remidiation out there.

Looking Back on the Battle with S-510

From The Natural Solutions Foundation – Rima Report

While we ultimately may not have stopped this in the Congress, the law that was adopted is a different creature than we would have faced had we not opposed it every step of the way. Recall, the first version of the bill that passed the House in July ‘09 had severe penalties and no significant exemption for local production and distribution. The version that passed the Senate at the end of November 2010 not only had no such severe penalties, but did have a rather weak exemption for some local production and distribution.

It also did not have, as it might have, without our Push Back, two draconian bills that had been introduced in the Senate to prepare the way to add their terms to the final “food safety” bill; these were Sen. McCain’s discredited S.3002 which would have brought Dietary Supplements under even greater Federal control and the “criminalization of speech about food claims” bill, S.3767, introduced by the majority party “leadership” late in the session. The criminal penalty bill, while remaining a future risk, went nowhere, after over a hundred thousand messages of opposition. Opposition to McCain’s attempt to legislate Codex compliance was so great that he withdrew his own support from his own bill a month and a day after introducing it in February 2010. And the final bill adopted today has a stronger local food exemption, with an inflation escalation clause, so the exemption may become meaningful, depending on how the final regulations are written…..

Confessions of (VT) State Stimulus Czar

The Wall Street Journal

By TOM EVSLIN

In March 2009, Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas asked me to become the state’s chief recovery officer, or stimulus czar. Vermont was about to get $1 billion or so in 300 separate and unrelated programs stapled together in the federal stimulus package, aka the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act. The governor needed someone with start-up experience to manage the money and programs. Before selling my last company and retiring, I’d been a high-tech entrepreneur.

Part of my job was to coordinate stimulus money awarded directly to state government, both to assure that we complied with federal regulations and that we used this one-time money in ways that made sense. Complying with the regulations was the easy part. Using the money well was another story. Although I’d like to think Vermont did better than many states, much of the money ended up continuing bloated programs rather than providing a transition to a sustainable future.

The Disappearance of Our Republic

Republic is a form of government in which the People or some portion thereof retain supreme control over the government.  A Republic is governed by the Rule of Law.

When we look at our legal system, why is it these unalienable, fundamental Rights of Equality, Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, seem to be so powerless? This is a complicated question with a complicated answer.  I will try to keep this explanation as simple as possible, with references to more in-depth explanations.

Let us start with Title 28 of the United States Code.  This is the body of laws where the power grab happened, but in a very subtle manner.  That Title of the U.S. Code was revised, codified and enacted all at once on June, 25, 1948.  It is the Act that lays out the Federal Judiciary and Federal judicial procedures still being used today.

Definitions are very important.  Definitions are understood by the context in which words are used or otherwise specified.  Now for some very important definitions:

United States” is the term that is used consistently throughout Title 28 to refer to the Federal government domiciled in D.C.  There is only ONE PLACE in all of Title 28 where the term “United States of America” is used, and there it is used in correct contra-distinction to “United States”.  See 28 U.S.C. 1746.

Thus, “United States” is a singular noun that refers to the Federal government.

United States of America” are a plural noun that refers to the 50 States.

These two different names are also defined in the Articles of Confederation(1777).  The Articles of Confederation were the first constitution of the United States;  they specified how the Federal government was to operate, including adoption of an official name for the Union of several States first established by those Articles, namely the United States of America.

In those Articles of Confederation, we find:

Article 1.  The United States of America are the Confederacy or “Union” established by the Sovereign States that existed at that time.

Article 2.  The United States was expressly delegated powers and authorities by the United States of America, while the sovereignty, freedom, and independence of those States was expressly maintained.

Despite widespread mythology that continues to circulate the Internet, there are no Acts of Congress expressly incorporating either the “United States” or the “United States of America”.

In 1871 Congress did expressly incorporate the District of Columbia, but D.C. and the “United States” are not one and the same.  More importantly, Congress expressly extended the entire U.S. Constitution into D.C. in that Act of 1871!  And, 2 years later in 1873, Congress extended the entire U.S. Constitution into all Federal Territories, even future Federal Territories!

How were our fundamental Rights abrogated?

Bernie’s Fed Audit Results

Cutting Out the BS of Crisis-Era Bailout Activities

By Eric Fry

12/20/10

Two weeks ago, for the first time ever, the Federal Reserve dragged its crisis-era bailout activities out into the light of day (thank you Senator Bernie Sanders and Congressman Ron Paul!). The resulting revelations exposed a number of shocking truths, like the truth that the big Wall Street banks did not merely receive one $10 billion loan each from the TARP facility; they also received tens of billions of undisclosed loans from other lending facilities. On top of that, many of the big banks raised hundreds of billions dollars by secretly selling mortgage-backed securities directly to the Fed.

These massive undisclosed bailouts contributed greatly to the relatively robust earnings results many big banks produced during 2009 and early 2010 – results that would have been impossible without the hidden assistance. Accordingly, stock market participants came to believe the fiction that the big banks were “healthy,” rather than the truth that they were massively subsidized. As opinions changed, so did share prices, corporate bond prices, credit default swap prices, etc.

Some investors made money from the resulting asset-repricing, some lost money. Neither side reaped the reward it deserved, but only the result that the Fed’s manipulations produced. In an honest and transparent marketplace, the list of winning and losing investors would have been very different than the actual list that emerged from the crisis.

In a truly free market, the financial markets, themselves, pick the investors who win or lose, not the Chairman of the Federal Reserve or the Secretary of the Treasury.
