The Freedom “Brain Trust” That Sparked an Agenda 21 Revolt

A message from our President, Tom DeWeese:

Just one year ago I sponsored the Freedom Action National Conference at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. It turned out to be an historic gathering, because this was the event that essentially parked the current national firestorm against the UN’s Agenda 21. Here activists from around the nation heard from the foremost Agenda 21 experts about why this United Nations’ policy is such a threat to American society. And from this event, those activists returned home, inspired to take on the battle to oust such policy from their local communities.

Those experts bringing the message to the conference included Michael Shaw, founder of Freedom Advocates; Mike Coffman of Sovereignty International and myself. The three of us have been a team for more than 15 years, detailing every aspect of the Agenda 21 threat. At the Freedom Action National Conference we again teamed up to bring the very latest Agenda 21 information, including how it is being spread in community after community; the wide variety of names it hides behind; who are the perpetrators, who is ICLEI, and how Agenda 21 can be defeated.

In addition to these direct presentations on Agenda 21, the conference featured an incredible line up of leaders in the growing movement for Constitutional liberty. One attendee told me I had assembled the “brain trust” of the freedom movement. These experts connected the dots to Agenda 21 from such seemingly unrelated issues including Health care; illegal immigration; the growing international surveillance system, and the threat of fusion centers; the IRS and how to legally stand up to it; and the reasons why the push for a Constitutional Convention is a very bad idea.

The Freedom Action National Conference was also a gathering place for several influential state legislators, including Rep. Charles Key, of Oklahoma; Rep. Matt Shea, of Washington State; Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, of Pennsylvania; and Rep. Sam Rohrer, of Pennsylvania. These legislators met together during the conference and began working on legislation to take back to their states, and to recruit more legislators to the cause. The conference allowed them the opportunity to learn, compare notes and network with activists.

Best selling author, Tom Woods discussed the issue of Nullification and how it can be used to turn back bad policy like Agenda 21. Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America connected the dots from gun control to Agenda 21. And Marc Morano, the nation’s leading expert on the Global Warming hoax, kept the crowd in constant laughter as he related the panic global warming scare mongers are experiencing as they see their issue collapsing around the world. Former presidential candidate and Constitution expert, Michael Badnarik gave the conference key note address, calling on the attendees to dedicate themselves to the principles of the Constitution. And Sheriff Richard Mack taught the gathering how county sheriffs can and should be the most powerful locally elected officials, fully able to keep intrusive federal officials under control.

From these dynamic presentations, the Freedom Action participants went into workshops to learn how to fight back against these policies. Education expert Beverly Eakman presented a workshop detailing how to disrupt pre-planned consensus meetings – the tactic most often used to enforce Agenda 21 policy on the local level. Dan Byfield of the American Stewards of Liberty delivered a powerful workshop on a valuable new tool for the fight on the local level – called “Coordination.” This was the major tool used to stop the Trans-Texas Corridor and is now being used in communities across the nation against Agenda 21 and intrusive federal policies. Campaign expert Barry Sheets taught attendees how to run an effective local campaign on very limited funds. And finally, media experts Sam Bushman, Gary Franchi, and George Sheperd united to teach how to use the media and social net works to get the message out and bypass a biased mainstream media. Each workshop was an invaluable lesson in effective activism.

As a result of the Freedom Action National Conference, activists started what has become a revolution in the fight to stop Agenda 21. Firestorms against Agenda 21 have erupted in communities across the nation, in city council and county commissioner meetings; in state legislatures and, most recently, in the current presidential race. Major Tea Party leaders have voted Agenda 21 to be one of their top two issues and many candidates for local and state office are making it a major issue in their campaigns. As a direct result, nine communities have now voted to end Agenda 21 policies and hundreds more are working toward that goal.

This major push against Agenda 21 started last August, 2010 with the Freedom Action National Conference on the same hallowed ground where George Washington revitalized his starving and defeated troops to go on to win American freedom. And it looks like history may be repeating itself. The Freedom Action National Conference was an amazing, unique event that created a starting point where Americans can begin the process to diminish the growing tyranny of government.

Even though the conference took place a full year ago, dedicated, concerned activists who want to learn and join the fight, don’t have to miss it-even now. Because the entire conference is available in an complete 12 disk DVD set, including all the speeches and all the workshops. You can use these presentations as programs for your activist meetings and for training sessions. The information is in more demand today than when the conference was first held. This 12 disk DVD set is available today on Amazon. More information can be found here:

Paul Krugman Wants Manufactured Threat From OuterSpace to Revive Economy
YouTube Guess this is the day for videos. Another would-be humorous if it weren’t so true video this time showing Paul Krugman following the mantra of the global elite: scare the bejesus out of the people (even or especially with make-believe) and they will beg us to take their money and take care of them. Just another Nobel peace prize winner with a sick brain. [Click here to view the video]

Land-grabbing to build the Wildlands Network
All across America land is being sucked-up by government — federal, state and local. It doesn’t matter which level of government takes the land, it is no longer private property in the hands of those who would care best for it. Without the right to private property we are not free, in fact we are reduced to slavery. If you cannot own property you cannot have free speech — even a pencil and paper are not yours without the right to private property, so what would be the case of a printing press or computer?

The weakest are always the first in line to be targeted. Makes sense. Those of us who are still hanging on have to remember that we are all in line, that we might not be eaten up this week or next month, but the global elite crocodile is moving up.

Here are two examples of the land-grabbing techniques being used to deny us our right to our property; there are many more means being used. Obviously we cannot stop what we are doing and jump in and start fighting each of these brush fires, but we can email these to everyone we know and begin the exposure of these evil deeds. Not only will more people start asking the bureaucrats for answers (don’t hold your breath waiting to hear) but we will start waking up those who haven’t opened their eyes yet to what is going on — or jolt into action those who have seen but don’t want to be bothered because it is “too big an issue” to handle… [Click here to view the video or click here to read the article]
