Dear Senator Schumer,
As an elected official for over 20 years, I am sure you were around when UN Agenda 21 was adopted and began implementation in the United States. I am certain that you know that Agenda 21 is not a voluntary action plan, has binding and legal authority, and is infringing on US property rights all over the country. As an elected official, you have taken an oath to uphold and defend the US Constitution, and Agenda 21 is a violation of the 5th Amendment to the Constitution.
Although, as you say, Agenda 21 aims at preparing nations, primarily developing nations, for the challenges of attaining the long-term goal of sustainable development, it also targets US citizens and its aim is to redistribute wealth from America to the other developing nations to which you refer.
I appreciate your candidness in your letter where you state that your position on Agenda 21 is, “that the long-term goal of sustainable development is an important one.”
After President GHW Bush signed the global agreement, Agenda 21, it was renamed as Sustainable Development by the President’s Council for Sustainable Development in the early 1990s. Agenda 21 has already been implemented into law by two presidential orders:
An executive order created by President Bill Clinton to create the President’s Council on Sustainable Development for the purpose of adopting UN Agenda 21 in this country, literally bypassing ratification of the Senate after GHW Bush signed the agreement. NYS Governor Cuomo sat on the President’s Council for Sustainable Development in his role as Secretary of HUD, and has helped implement Agenda 21 on both a national and state level.
An executive order was created by President Barack Obama forming the White House Rural Council to expand Agenda 21 to the control all food, fiber and energy. During the Obama Administration, The Partnership for Sustainable Communities was created (through another law) so that the DOT, HUD and the EPA can effectively work together to implement sustainable development on the Federal level and subsequently there have been thousands of other laws to implement sustainable development on every level of government which has happened over the past 20 years. One such law is the Greenway Act of 1991.
In the state of New York, Gov. Cuomo is implementing his Cleaner Greener Program and Regional Councils. The Cleaner Greener program is the mirror image of the UN Agenda 21 program. The Regional Councils are to create regionalism. Regionalism takes power away from local elected officials and puts it in the hands of unelected, appointed committees that report to the governor, not to the people.
Local counties, towns and villages are adopting sustainable development through grant agreements and their comprehensive plans which also mirror the components of UN Agenda 21. Just about every town has the same comprehensive plan, or is pursuing one. Billions of dollars in taxpayer money is being spent on these projects which will ultimately wipe out the middle class.
Sustainable Development is and has been implemented through Executive Orders, Federal, state and local laws, private agreements, acts and zoning codes. Please explain to me how executive orders, federal, state and local laws, private agreements, acts and zoning codes are voluntary and non-binding.
I look forward to your response.
