GREAT VICTORY for LIBERTY in BEAUTIFUL SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA! CROOKED ROAD NATIONAL HERITAGE AREA shot down by LOCAL GOVERNMENTS who said NO!

I am blogging today from the beautiful Big Stone Gap area and the mountains are majestic and the fight for liberty here is awesome.  There is a wonderful effort to honor the founding of country (and bluegrass) music in Southwest Virginia.  The Crooked Road is a tourism initiative to help visitors to appreciate the efforts […]

MORE PROOF ICLEI has a FOREIGN POLICY? RIGHT IN the ICLEI USA WEBSITE! ICLEI USA meets with STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS!

I have contended for some time that ICLEI has a foreign policy.  The Constitution forbids states and local governments from conducting foreign policy goals. And as the Lord Jesus once said, “…for by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”  (Matthew 12:37 [KJV])  Here it is from ICLEI USA’s own blog!  (Michael Schmitz is the Executive […]

Reader Takes Exception to the Herald Progress Reporting on Budget Issues

I write in frustration with the Herald Progresses (HP) repeated OpEd publication of the opinions of Ragan Phillips. While he has every right to voice his opinion, when the HP continues to highlight his factually incorrect opinions, I wonder if the HP is truly interested in the facts or merely selling controversy? How many times […]

PERHAPS a LITTLE PRAIRIE FIRE in MASSACHUSETTS? SEVERAL COMMUNITIES say NO to UN RESOLUTION!

ANOTHER REASON to KICK ICLEI OUT of your COMMUNITY! THEY have POLITICAL GOALS!

I blogged on this before and here’s the pertinent part of the ICLEI Charter (with my thoughts in bold): (7)  Adopt patterns of production, consumption, and reproduction that safeguard Earth’s regenerative capacities, human rights, and community well-being.  This means ABORTION! (9) Eradicate poverty as an ethical, social, and environmental imperative. This means statist and socialistic […]

ROANOKE COUNTY again REMAINS in ICLEI! What we need is the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to BAN ICLEI…

I am pleased that Roanoke County again considered its membership in ICLEI.  But the result was the same:  Still members of the unconstitutional confederation of world cities with foreign policy goals.  But the Roanoke Times is pleased! The Times still tells its readers the lie that ICLEI is the harmless fuzzball (nod to Rush Limbaugh) […]

RANT: I Would Rather PAY a BRIBE to Open a Business Than Deal With the American Bureaucracy

If I hear another DAMN LIBERAL try to defend Barack Obama’s “You didn’t build that business” I am going to need duct tape for my head. To say I am taking his statement of context is COMPLETE BULLSHIT! He said what he meant and he means what he said! Barack Obama believes that the Government facilitated each […]

MORE ICLEI at RIO+20: Their FOREIGN POLICY AIMS and GOALS are SELF-CONVICTING! ICLEI IMPLEMENTS Local AGENDA 21!

Here’s a summary of how ICLEI thought the Rio+20 Conference went.  There was (thank The Lord of Hosts!) few substantive accomplishments.  But ICLEI once again convicted themselves of unconstitutional foreign policy actions: Do cities have to step in where governments are failing to take effective action? Cities are cooperating internationally without borders, without customs, without […]

ICLEI is AT IT AGAIN! CONDUCTING FOREIGN POLICY! US CITIES MUST GET OUT NOW!

Once again, ICLEI nailed itself in one of its own documents:  This Delegation Briefing (here’s the copy from ICLEI website) for the what appeared to have failed (Praise God!) Rio+20 Summit has several things where ICLEI is clearly conducting foreign policy on behalf of its members: ICLEI Rio+20 preparations and advocacy ICLEI has decided to […]

DID the SUPREME COURT just DECLARE ICLEI UNCONSTITUTIONAL? Well, there is HELPFUL LANGUAGE!

There is a fair amount of wailing and gnashing of teeth on the Arizona immigrant decision and some of the teeth are mine!  But there is some useful supportive language in favor of it being unconstitutional for municipalities and local governments to conduct foreign policy.  And that means only one thing:  ICLEI is indeed unconstitutional […]

BLAME JOHN BIRCH again: OPINION in the MONTGOMERY (AL) ADVERTISER!

In a column in the Montgomery (AL) Advertiser, two research fellows at the (you guessed it) Southern Poverty Law Center have raised the ultimate fear of not being a member of ICLEI:  No grant money for sustainability!  (Of course blame John Birch and call it names!) SB 477 isn’t just pointless; it’s actually stupid. If […]

LOOKS like BAD NEWS in TENNESSEE: The SUBSTANTIVE LAWS AGAINST ICLEI/AGENDA 21 were pulled or defeated in committee!

The Tennessee anti-ICLEI bill was withdrawn by its sponsor and the anti-smart growth bill defeated in committee, according to the Tennessean: Womick took House Bill 3571 off notice Wednesday, meaning it will not be considered again this year. That bill would ban local governments and other entities from taking part in programs with ICLEI or […]
