It Matters How You Stand

Justice has finally been achieved as the federal government’s war against western ranchers and property owners has taken a second major hit. First, Cliven Bundy and his sons, Ryan, Ammon, Dave and Mel, were released in January, 2018, after three trials that never found them guilty of a crime, yet they spent close to two years behind federal bars, while being physically tortured and abused by cheating and lying Bureau of Land Management (BLM) thugs. As they were forced into solitary confinement, subjected to daily body searches, and other physical abuses, they were labeled by the government and mainstream media to be nothing more than paranoid right-wing loons. Finally, a judge found that it was the BLM which was dangerous, guilty of perpetrating violence and spreading lies in an attempt to take control of the Bundy Nevada land that had been in the family’s possession since the 1880s. The BLM ...

Policy Expert Sounds the Alarm on Growing Assault on Private Property

Tom DeWeese, recognized expert on private property rights, has released a new book entitled Sustainable: The WAR on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals. DeWeese’s book describes in detail the process being used at every level of government to reorganize our society through the destruction of private property. According to DeWeese, the American system of free enterprise, private property ownership and individual liberty is under attack by a political force that, while plainly out in the open for all to see, is little understood and mostly ignored. Yet private non-governmental organizations (NGOs), city planners and federal agencies have teamed up specifically to change human society under the banner of Sustainable Development. It is gaining power in every state, county, and community under the false threat of Environmental Armageddon, demanding that we completely reorganize our economic system, our representative form of government, and our individual lifestyle. While termed in positive sounding ...

The Last Cowboy at Pine Creek Ranch

Watch this video and see for yourself the sad and frightening saga of the destruction of the old west – and the American dream. Introduction by Tom DeWeese Wayne Hage, Sr was a friend of mine, as was his second wife, the late Congresswoman Helen Chenoweth. Both were courageous leaders in the battle to save private property from the tyranny of government takings. Wayne was one of the first to stand up and fight back against federal efforts to remove independent ranchers from the range lands. That fight is now best known through the desperate efforts of the Bundys. Years before, there was Wayne Hage. In similar fashion to what the Bundys would eventually face, Wayne endured outrageous harassment and intimidation from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). His fences were cut and livestock stolen. His life threatened. His ability to run the ranch made nearly impossible. But Wayne Hage ...

It’s Time to Bring the Southern Poverty Law Center to Justice

There are many powerful forces operating today across the nation to divide the American people and silence opposing views. One of the most active of these efforts is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). There are two very serious reasons why the SPLC is in many ways more dangerous than other organizations that are fueling the flames of the far left radicals who use violence and lies to stop honest political debate. First, the SPLC has contracts with the federal government, specifically the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), serving as advisors to help define what a domestic terrorist or hate group is, even helping to write official policy for this agency of our government. Here are just a few examples: In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a report entitled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” ...

How the Media Twists Facts To Enforce its Propaganda Bias

It’s become obvious that our fight against Agenda 21/2030 is beginning to have an affect when a reporter writes not one, but two attack articles about the same event. That’s what happened as a result of my recent talk in Rexburg, Idaho. In mid-October I traveled to three cities in Idaho (including Rexburg) and to Spokane, Washington, speaking about Agenda 21 and the growing assault on private property and individual choice. Below is one of two reports on the Rexburg event, as reported by reporter Bryan Clark. I’ve inserted my remarks in the body of his article to show what I actually said in contrast to his innuendos and lack of facts. Conspiracist warns of plot for global domination Posted: October 19, 2017 5:31 p.m. By BRYAN CLARK, Post Register His original article is in blue  REXBURG — Most people don’t think concentration camps and bike paths have much in common, ...

Social Engineering, Crony Capitalism, Regionalism, Urbanism Are All Happening In Every State

Let’s look at Texas; these issues are not limited to Texas, but Texas’s population growth is higher than the U.S. as a whole and twice as fast sine the 1990s, so perhaps we can see some things better there. A Deeper Look at the Phony “Texas Miracle” “Moving a business to Texas also turns out to have tax consequences that are inconsistent with the conservative narrative of the Texas Miracle. Yes, some businesses manage to strike lucrative tax breaks in Texas. As part of an industrial policy that dares not speak its name, the state government, for example, maintains the Texas Enterprise Fund (known to some as a slush fund and to others as a “deal-closing” fund), which the governor uses to lure favored businesses with special subsidies and incentives. “But most Texas businesses, especially small ones, don’t get such treatment. Instead, they face total effective tax rates that are, ...

Freedom Cannot Exist In an Administrative Form of Government

Freedom cannot exist in an administrative form of government. H. Lamb Because so many of us who are trying to stop the theft of our private property and the destruction of local control of our communities have been in this battle for so long, we forget that it is only recently that many American citizens have begun learning of some of the tactics being used just for that. A few months ago, I took over answering phone and email questions on policy for APC. One of the first emails I responded to was from a couple in Hermosa Beach, California. Hermosa Beach is in the process of finalizing their so-called unique community plan for 2031. I just skimmed over it at first because I am sick of looking at these ‘unique’ community plans that have all the same details, other than maybe one has a beach, one has mountains, and ...

Five Actions Ben Carson Must Take to Control HUD’s Tyranny

After twenty four years of a relentless drive for centralized government power through Clinton, Bush and Obama, finally there is a chance to roll back some of the destruction to our Republic.  Donald Trump has an historic opportunity to fulfill his promise to “drain the swamp,” meaning getting rid of the corruption, the power grabs, and the disregard for Constitutional law. It’s vital to understand that federal agencies are basically operating without oversight, free to create thousands of rules and regulations that become the force of law. These rules come complete with threats of legal action and intimidation. Much of this enforcement is done behind the scenes, away from the public eye. But the result can destroy property, business, and lives. To take effective action against this situation and fulfill on his promise, President Trumps must set a very specific priority for federal policy: 1. Assure the complete protection of ...

How Sustainable Development Millennial Goals Are Being Met

Listen This Time or HUD Will Destroy Your City

America’s homeowners should be shaking in their shoes. The federal government has decided that people who have worked, saved and planned so they can buy homes in nice, safe neighborhoods of their own choosing, are racists. They charge that it is a “social injustice.” The government now claims that it’s unfair unless everyone can have the same, whether they earn it or not. And it doesn’t matter whether they can afford such a home. We’re told that it’s racist to deny someone an equal home, just because they don’t have the money for it. White privilege, don’t you know. You may be watching the “Black Lives Matter” protests taking place on city streets around the country. You may be alarmed that such violence can happen in your downtown. And you may wonder what is behind such activity. Well, get ready for the same kind of threats and violence to possibly ...

Time To Make Candidates Face The Real Issues Threatening American Freedom

The election campaigns are in full swing. Yet, have you heard a single candidate for President, or even for a lower office, mention the destruction of property rights or representative government to be a problem worth their time to address? Our nation is being destroyed from within and candidates aren’t even discussing it. Worse, voters aren’t making them discuss these things, such as: The massive destruction of American industry by the EPA and other over-reaching government regulations – killing jobs by the thousands? The near complete usurpation of private property rights in communities and rural areas under the tiresome excuse of environmental protection? Who stands with the property owners as they see their American dreams shattered under the innocuous title of “community development?” The growing imposition of non-elected boards and regional governments that are fast replacing our elected representatives in making local community decisions – all powered by the imposition ...

Breaking News: The Hidden Agenda in Oregon

A note from Tom DeWeese: The stand off in Burns, Oregon just ended. A couple of weeks ago, one of the protestors, rancher Lavoy Finicum, was shot nine times by federal agents as he attempted to travel to a public meeting to discuss their purpose. Two others, brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy, were arrested and put in solitary confinement. The Main Stream Media has painted the occupiers as armed militia, even using terms like “unhinged.” These labels are untrue and unfair descriptions. The truth is this is a story with a long history of abuse by the federal government, leading to numerous confrontations with ranchers who have had their livelihood and homes destroyed. In the following article C.J. Hadley, Editor of Range Magazine, outlines the long sad, frustrating, tragic story of a growing government oppression over peaceful, law abiding American citizens who have simply had enough.

Private Property Ownership – the First American Right To Die Under Barack Obama’s Tyranny

“Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can…” John Lennon wrote these words for a fantasy song to glorify his understanding of the road to peace. John may not have understood the true origins of his thoughts, but we know it as Communism. Barack Obama knows that too and is determined to make sure you understand the consequences of “no possessions.” In government-speak it’s called the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule.” (AFFH) Once it becomes a reality you will be able to fully appreciate John’s statement – imagine no possessions.” For if AFFH is allowed to stand, the concept of private property is about to die in America. The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule is federal enforcement of Sustainable Development Smart Growth Cities. Until now there was at least a pretense that Smart Growth development was a local process. That, of course, is what the American Planning Association (APA), Non-governmental ...

It’s 1992 All Over Again

A New Agenda 21 Threatens Our Way of Life If you had a time machine and could travel back to 1992 as the UN’s Earth Summit was underway, your efforts to abort this subversive policy would be aided by all you had experienced in the Orwellian world of “Sustainable Living”. You wouldn’t have to wonder what the NGOs who created it had in mind. You wouldn’t have to trust the news media to provide the details. You would know because you would have lived it. You would know that Nancy Pelosi’s open claim that Agenda 21 is a “comprehensive blue print” for the reorganization of human society was true.   And what’s more; you don’t like it! We were told, without hesitation, that Agenda 21 was aimed at destroying free enterprise. That it is was a clarion call for humans to live on less and that Earth could no longer sustain the ...

A New Symbol Has Been Cast: People • Property • Liberty

Time to Treat Property Owners like OWNERS! The American way of life, based on a strong middle class established through free enterprise and ownership of private property, is under assault like never before. That assault will dramatically increase in September as thousands of Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs), global elitists and United Nation’s bureaucrats converge on New York City to reboot Agenda 21. This time they are calling it the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This new 15 year plan demands 17 points of global control to reorganize the world into a Socialist utopia by 2030. If allowed to take control, there will be no ownership of private property, very little individual choice, and national sovereignty will be a thing of the past in this new agenda. Meanwhile, the Obama Administration, through Housing and Urban Development (HUD), is busy implementing the “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” rule (AFFH). This program targets specific neighborhoods ...

Three Questions to Change the Election

The number of candidates for President seems to grow on a daily basis. Each new candidate attempts to convince us they are the new hope for a better tomorrow. Jobs. Inequality. And the ever popular – “let’s be bipartisan so we can all move forward together!” These are the topics – the safe topics – they stick to. All designed to assure that they hit emotional buttons in each of us, yet don’t cause controversy. In fact, about the only reason we are given to vote for these candidates is that perhaps a charge that their opponent is involved in some kind of scandal or hired an illegal gardener. They resort to character assassination of their opponents as they dig for dirt. Or, the most common reasons we are given by candidates to vote for them, often reduced to the vocabulary of a cave man – “Republican good -- Democrat ...

Protection of Private Property Rights

Testimony by Tom DeWeese, American Policy Center April 9th, 2015 First, let me address the 1,000 pound Gorilla in the room –  the claim that Agenda 21 is just a right wing conspiracy theory. The Southern Poverty Law Centers says, “Agenda 21 is not a treaty. It has no force of law, no enforcement mechanisms, no penalties, and no significant funding. It is not even a top-down recommendation, seeking instead to encourage communities around the world to come up with their own solutions to overpopulation, pollution, poverty and resource depletion. It is a feel good guide that cannot force anyone, anywhere to do anything at all.” And that is exactly what planners, non-governmental organizations and federal officials tell you and city councilmen and county commissioners every day. The fact is, up until the mid 2000s, no one was saying Agenda 21 was a Rightwing fringe fantasy. In 1992, over 50,000 ...

Private Property Rights and Socialism Do Not Mix

An urgent message to the National Association of Realtors The National Association of Realtors (NAR) is the main stream organization in which nearly every real estate agent in the nation belongs as a means to keep up with the latest ideas and trends in the property selling industry. NAR’s members are the professionals that all of us look to for the best approach to buy and sell our homes. One of NAR’s mottos is "protecting the American dream of home ownership". And they claim to protect property rights. Would it then surprise you that NAR is a major promoter of a plan that actually results in the destruction of private property rights? NAR documents show the Association is working to advocate the policy of Smart Growth for local community development. Urban planners promote Smart Growth policies because they adhere to the dogma that urban sprawl (development projects) are a danger ...

Is the U.S. Being Colonized By Red China?

Author’s note: On Monday, November 10th, Barack Obama met with Communist Chinese leaders and announced a new immigration agreement with that totalitarian dictatorship, creating the following headline:  "Putting a bright face on the future of U.S. ties to China, President Barack Obama announced Monday that the two countries would start granting visas to each other's citizens valid for up to a decade." Last June I released the following article to alert Americans of the dangers of dealing with the Red Chinese and specifically through an immigration program called EB-5. Perhaps now, in light of this new announcement by the Administration, more Americans and the news media will take greater note of my warnings. With this new development, I am re-releasing the article.  Tom DeWeese For the past few decades the Communist regime of China has been driving toward world supremacy, both economically and militarily. The regime’s main target has been, ...
