Statehouse Live: Committee to consider resolution condemning United Nations Agenda 21

March 14, 2012


— A Kansas House committee has scheduled a hearing on a resolution that condemns a United Nations plan of "extreme environmentalism, social engineering and global political control."

The House Energy and Utilities Committee will consider United Nations Agenda 21 during a public hearing starting at 9 a.m. Friday.

House Resolution 6018 states that United Nations Agenda 21, approved in 1992, is a covert plan of radical sustainable development that is opposed to the American way of life, specifically private ownership of property, homes and cars and farms.

The House resolution states that this agenda is being pushed through such policies as Smart Growth, regional visioning programs and other "green" and "alternative" projects.

Paranoia much? Just because the men in black helicopters aren't out to get you doesn't mean the men in white coats aren't as well.

You know, now that you mention it, I did see a black helicopter over southern Doug. Co. The other day. Does this signal the beginning of the biblical "end times"?

Amazing. The capitol is awash in difficult, meaningful, controversial issues, and the Legislature is addressing this b.s. /bogus issue. shame on them. Honestly, where do you start in getting your mind around this bunk?

Ahhh.. the GOP legislators gearing up for primary season again. Time to get out the red meat to get their rapid fan base pumped up.

Beyond belief.

A twenty-year old "covert" attempt to destroy the American way of life. No doubt secretly written and enacted in that far-off hidden lair of terrorists far away from the Western World and the eyes of prying journalists; New York City.

"is a covert plan of radical sustainable development"

I really wish this would be explained further. Why do they believe it to be a "covert plan?" With the little information given in this article, I have no idea what they are talking about. Now I have to do research of my own to find out....darn my curiosity!

Greg Cooper 6 years, 2 months ago

That ain't nuthin--they don't know what they're talking about, either.

Well, good then. Cause I thought I was missing something!

I was trying to figure out what had the Kansas Republicans upset about something that started while daddy Bush was in office. Then it hit me that assuming they can read it is Section 3 of the United Nations Agenda 21 that probably has them the most upset. They can't let those uppity women have those kind of rights.

Good grief!! What the H#ll are they thinking in Topeka? Oh, wait; I used the word "thinking". My bad. Never mind.

Seems that the lunatic fringe is now seated as the lunatic mainstream. Not enough state hospital beds left to accomodate them all. You wonder why KS is laughed about/at around the country? No further commentary necessary.

" political control."

Heck, when I first read this, I thought it was the GOP political platform actually being revealed. But then I noticed it didn't have any bogus religious and anti-abortion planks.

Wow, there's a lot of uneducated sheeple commenting on this story. I for one am relieved to see that local government is recognizing the UN's plan to take away our liberties in this country. You all should read up and educate yourselves on Agenda 21. I know this post will be criticized, but you sheeple really need to wake up. Don't start bitching once they take away all your rights, wake up before it's too late!

Greg Cooper 6 years, 2 months ago

You are reading into this document just what the reght-wing fear-monger who wrote it wants you to read.

Try reading the original document in its entirety, with an open mind, if you can, and you'll see that the document calls for nothing more than global cooperation in all endeavors favoring human dignity and earth-sustainability.

The fact that the United Nations wants every person and every nation to think in terms of sustaining the limited resources available to them does not lead to the draconian issues you cite. In fact, the only loss of liberty under this agenda would be the loss of liberty any person would have to cause harm to, or irreparable loss of, the resources of the planet.

Sounds pretty good, when you read the entire thing rather than listening to the blistering lies told by your heroes.

This has been around for 20 years. It along with other non United Nations councils coming up with rules that was all part of or spawned from NAFTA and the redo of GATT that was switched to the WTO. Damn funny that at the time the Republicans were all over the band wagon on this even though it was the start of the deindustrialization of the US and we haven't done to well as a service based Country since then. Imagine that. It isn't the issue of liking or disliking. It is the issue of what makes the Kansas Theocracy think they have any business complaining directly to the United Nations when there isn't one thing that will come from it. They are wasting time when they have more important duties to Kansas citizens to be addressed. Those duties also do not include spending time monitoring what goes on between the thighs of women.

Wow. The Kansas House only 20 years behind the times?

What an improvement!

I am expecting TerriLois Gregory to shortly present a bill (crafted by the John Birch Society) calling for condemnation of public water fluoridation and to censure President Kennedy.

Really? Really? Do you hear the violins playing in Topeka while the state burns.

KU52 6 years, 2 months ago

I am continually amazed at what happens in the Statehouse. Most of the Kansas people are nice folks. How and why do they send these muddleheads to govern the State?

headdoctor 6 years, 2 months ago

The Republicans are notorious for voting for candidates and issues that are not in their own best interest. Then feed the us against them argument by blaming everything on the other party when their own was who supported the situation or maybe was completely responsible for the result.

Ragingbear 6 years, 2 months ago

The state should have no input on this. The UN is something that should only be addressed by the Federal Government.

Ron Holzwarth 6 years, 2 months ago

I had to scroll all the way down here to find anyone besides me that realized that.

I contend that the state should have no input on the state of a woman's uterus, but that doesn't seem to deter them whatsoever.

Shakes head and sighs.

I've been doing a lot of that lately.

Out of curiosity I copied the first paragraph of the resolution and ran a google search. First result as a "Model Stop Agenda 21 Bill for State Legislatures" with a web address of the John Birch Society. The front page of their website includes an "action kit" to help in the attack against this insidious, twenty year old, non-binding threat.

Paul R Getto 6 years, 2 months ago

John Birch/ALEC/Koch boys------it's all part of the same set of initiatives. The UN is messy but necessary, kinda like the Kansas Legislature.

hyperinflate 6 years, 2 months ago

Nothing like knowing our legislators can't even be troubled to craft their own anachronistic bills.

Paul R Getto 6 years, 2 months ago They should worry about stuff like this; Mullah Sam might think it's a good idea.

I doubt this would effect Brownback either way. Women have no value to him except for when he wants to use them.

I wonder why none of the geniuses of rightdom are commenting on this? nothing like running from your own stink....

headdoctor 6 years, 2 months ago

I don't suppose it has occurred to you that there are a lot of Independents that may take a stance against the Republicans. I know that is something you might have trouble wrapping your brain around. Some of those voted for Brownback the first time but I doubt that mistake will be repeated.

I suggest Scott contact the American Planning Association, the Urban Land Institute, the American Institute of Architects and find out more from the experts. We need some balanced reporting here, not just what the lunatic fringe believes.

Mike Ford 6 years, 2 months ago

no one decides how you live your life except you. however in your case your parent might ask you to leave the basement and stop messing up the microwave by leaving the tv dinners in too long and pick up after yourself and pay rent and stop turning a girls guide to depravity so loud at night because you can only pay half on the cable bill. maybe you can collect some more cans to pay more of the internet bill so that you can keep trolling on here.

I doubt the UN could care less about the opinion of a bunch of Red Neck Politicians living in Kansas.

Mike Ford 6 years, 2 months ago

naw...born again american....I thought I saw you with the old short guy that collects cans on 23rd while I was working. Maybe a couple of you should go collect cans to pay for internet bills. Maybe I'll see the three of you collecting cans and talking to the guy living in the trailer at South Park on Mass St. He's crazy like a loon and all should talk you have delusions and lunacy in common...
