The “Real Reason for New York City’s Traffic Nightmare” shows parallels to earlier times in Santa Cruz, California. The common link connecting the policies of cities, big and small, east and west, is the implementation of Agenda 21, Chapter 7 – Human Settlements.
Henry Baker, Deputy Director of the Planning Department (circa 1972) told the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors that in order to gain public transit patronage, they would have to bait people with a carrot and discipline them with a stick. “Make it easy to use,” he said, “with reliable service and improved scheduling, and it will be attractive. But if that doesn’t work, make auto usage difficult, costly, and inconvenient. Permit road congestion to increase.” [emphasis added]
The quote above preceded the creation of Santa Cruz County, California’s Transit Corridor Plan, which is designed to reduce lanes and cause road congestion to increase.
- Henry Baker told the Board of Supervisors in 1975:
“Permit road congestion to increase; Do not build in anticipation of demand.”
- Linda Wilshusen wrote a letter to Supervisor Gary Patton in 1988, saying:
“…’traffic management’ has very little to do with science and engineering and a lot to do with sociology, marketing and behavior modification, as well as land use, parking and fuel availability, demographics and the like.”
- Supervisor Ellen Pirie told the Aptos Chamber of Commerce in 2004:
“If we add this [carpool] lane, then we have more possibilities, because then we have a way of getting people out of their cars.”

Donald Trump is the first major party presidential nominee who has spoken out about globalist trade policy, including multilateral trade deals. If he means what he says and does something about trade, globalism will suffer a possibly terminal fate. No wonder the left and right wing establishments are in such frenzy. And why many Americans around the country are in such a surge.

In communities across America, “stakeholder” councils are being formed, or have already been formed, to advance Agenda 21 to transform cities and towns into “sustainable communities.” The “consensus process” is used to gain the appearance of public support for the principles of sustainability, applied to a particular community. The process is designed to take the public policy- making function away from elected officials and place it in the hands of non-elected officials, while giving the appearance of broad public input into the decision-making process.

The Global Biodiversity Assessment report directed by the United Nations Environment Programe (UNEP) calls for urgent action to reverse unsustainable effects on global biodiversity. The report is based on the false premise that “Population growth has exceeded the capacity of the biosphere.” In order to understand what is sustainable, one must understand what is not sustainable…

Why do we use the term unalienable instead of inalienable? Inalienable rights are subject to changes in the law such as when property rights are given a back seat to emerging environmental law or free speech rights give way to political correctness. Whereas under the original doctrine of unalienable rights, these rights cannot be abridged.

Have we abandoned the uniquely American concept of the political, legal and educational recognition of unalienable rights? Reaffirming unalienable rights is our call to duty. You can contribute to this accomplishment by defending unalienable rights and by understanding and informing others of our government’s unrelenting commitment to the ‘global to local’ program of Agenda 21 Sustainable Development.
Good article to read if you are new or have friends that are new to Sustainable Development!

In this straightforward exposé of Agenda 21 — the blueprint to advance Sustainable Development — Beckett examines the notion of “sustainability.” His conclusion: The American people need to be better informed so they understand that Sustainable Development is a pseudonym for centralized control over human life.

Private property is more than a "thing." Your body, your thoughts and your actions obtain for you the benefits of various things, but it is the relationship between you and those things that form the essence of private property. Our forebearers recognized the idea and the ideal that every individual possesses unalienable rights. When this idea is respected it provides great advantages to individuals and society.

Did you know that some of your local elected representatives are enabling a shadow government to evolve? These people promote the reinvention of government through their support of, and appointments to, “regional” boards that act like soviet councils. These councils are funded to implement Agenda 21. Federal tax dollars fuel their appeal, but your city and county representatives do not have to go along.

The concepts of freedom and democracy conflict so regularly that Plato pronounced, “Democracy leads to anarchy, which is mob rule.” Freedom is the ability to decide and act for one’s self. Democracy requires all people to conform their action to the rule of the majority.
