Many have already heard of Agenda 21, the world planners’ agenda for taking control of mankind during the 21st century.
The summarized goal of this United Nations-concocted scheme appears at the beginning of its 1,100 pages. It is there that environmental attorney Daniel Sitarz, who edited this enormous guide for bringing about the regimentation of mankind, boldly admits that it “proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by every person on Earth.” To make even clearer the totalitarian goals of Agenda 21, he wrote that the document “calls for specific changes in the activities of all people.” That’s scary enough, but those who mean to establish the UN’s rule over everyone don’t seem satisfied with having all of the 21st century to accomplish their totalitarian goals.
Deciding that the overall goals included in Agenda 21 could use some boosting, they have produced a newer plan entitled Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, also known simply as Agenda 2030. It aims to accomplish numerous steps in the area known as “sustainable development.”
In the Preamble to the Agenda 2030 plan, one learns that this new document has 17 “Sustainable Development Goals” and 169 “targets.” These include ending poverty and hunger, ensuring good health, guaranteeing education and energy for all, building resilient infrastructure, combating climate change, and more. In order to accomplish all of this, the United Nations must be strengthened into an all-powerful world ruler. No one should discount the UN’s role in all of this.
So, the globalists continue to produce newer, more totalitarian steps to establish their ultimate takeover of everyone and everything. One of their latest creations is the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule (AFFH). Announced last July by Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julian Castro (no relation to Fidel and Raul except that they have similar goals), the 377-page AFFH rule is a significant attack on private property, especially on home ownership. It’s designed to relocate people from rural America and force them into cities, some of which would have to be built. Once the people are gathered into such structures, all the inhabitants can be carefully watched and craftily controlled. Creating this type of totalitarianism is already under way in China, where huge apartment complexes have been erected to house people who are being forced away from their farms and villages into high-rise buildings and a new, wholly different and unwelcome lifestyle.
A major element of the AFFH scheme is its focus on the racial and ethnic makeup of neighborhoods. Local government authority will virtually cease to exist if the new federal AFFH rules replace local control of zoning, education, transportation and more. AFFH requires any local government receiving HUD funding to report the makeup of housing by race and ethnicity. Further requirements include a listing of schools, parks, transportation availability, employment trends, etc. The project is all encompassing.
Congressman Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) saw what AFFH rules would lead to. He introduced a measure designed to ban HUD’s funding for AFFH. It won passage in the House by a vote of 229 to 193. A companion Senate bill (S. 1909, the Local Zoning Decisions Protection Act) has been introduced by Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah). Six Republicans have cosponsored this measure: Alabama’s Jeff Sessions, Louisiana’s David Vitter, Wyoming’s Mike Enzi, Florida’s Marco Rubio, Arkansas’ Tom Cotton, and Montana’s Steve Daines. Obviously, more cosponsors are needed.
Standing in the way of efforts to block implementation of the AFFH rules are none other than House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. A recent attempt to cut funding for AFFH in HUD’s budget failed when these two congressional leaders arranged to delete such action from the huge omnibus spending bill rammed through Congress last December. Instead of reducing HUD’s budget and killing funding for the AFFH, the HUD appropriation was increased. Expectations that much-needed change would follow when Paul Ryan succeeded John Boehner are totally unrealistic.
In summary, AFFH calls for destroying private property ownership, forcing people out of their homes, redistributing wealth, terminating local community control, and more. What to do about it? Right now, contacting senators is recommended.
In past years, action requests have always centered on sending letters to legislators. That procedure has been overcome by the greater effectiveness of telephone calls and the greater speed of emails.
Please phone your senators at 202-224-3121 and urge them to cosponsor and help pass S. 1909, a bill designed to ban HUD’s funding for it AFFH rule.
Please email your senators with the same message.
