Can We Take Back Our Election Process and Make the Parties Listen to Us

The clamor is growing louder every day. “They don’t listen.” “We have no real choice of candidates.” “The system is rigged for the elite.” “There’s no difference between the two parties.” You hear it every election. Endless talk about the need to create jobs, build the economy, make the nation a “better place to live for our families,” and, my favorite – “restore trust!”  Who’s not for those wonderful things! The slogans work for Democrat and Republican alike. These so-called issues are interchangeable. They are, in fact, nothing more than empty rhetoric. Meanwhile, do we hear a discussion about our money becoming more worthless every day from government spending and rampant inflation? What about the destruction of our education system as it is used for behavior modification while true academics are eliminated for the curriculum? Does any candidate dare mention the hopelessness taking over our inner cities as federal welfare ...

Stop SB 1195 – direct threat to Virginia’s Farmers

SB 1195 Blatantly unconstitutional WHY is Virginia implementing bad federal law? Authorizes warrantless search and seizure in violation of the Constitution. Our IV Amendment does not say "Except for Farmers" Maybe our legislators should check out U.S. Supreme Court See v. City of Seattle, and Camara v. Municipal Court, both 1967 UNDER THIS BILL - “The Commissioner shall have free access at all reasonable hours"  ...so ....Inspectors can come on the property without consent or administrative plan? WHAT CAN THEY INSPECT? Index  Most fruits and vegetables; sprouts; water; soil; waste; wild & domestic animals; growing, harvesting, packing, holding activities; equipment, tools, buildings, sanitation; farm records. WHAT CAN THEY DO IF THEY THINK THERE IS A VIOLATION? They are “authorized at all times to seize, take possession of, condemn, destroy, or require the destruction of any covered produce on a farm [in violation].” Levy horrific fines - $1,000 per violation, per day. CAN A FARMER APPEAL? Nobody can find a way ...

Four Ways to Use Fear and Deceit to Destroy our Culture

“Once such control of thinking is established, it’s just a short journey to rejecting morality and losing the ability to know right from wrong. Then, they set themselves up as the answer.”  Harold Riggers, ERASE Our nation is being attacked and torn apart from four very specific directions. Americans are desperate to find answers and strategies to stop it. Before we can do that  we must first understand how it is being done and by whom. I have just released a new book that, through a fictional thriller approach, gives great insight to such questions. The book is titled ERASE and features a four pronged story line. It details how we are being divided, manipulated and dumbed -down to prepare us to participate in our own demise. Of course the most obvious attack is seen through government policy. The federal government, through the EPA, HUD, the Department of Transportation, and ...

Know Your Enemy: Attack of the NGOs

The UN just wrapped up yet another international meeting attended by thousands of delegates and world leaders. This time they introduced and unanimously approved the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is the 17 Goal reboot of Agenda 21 with plans to fully enforce it by 2030. Many people ask me who writes these Agendas and who attends these meetings. And especially people ask how they wield so much power and influence over our government. It’s a vast matrix composed of both private Non-governmental Organizations (NGO) groups and representatives of the UN and representatives of a large number of US federal agencies – all working together behind the scenes, quietly making policy for the rest of us. They make fun of our efforts to expose and fight Agenda 21, calling it a conspiracy theory. Through their condescending chuckles they boldly claim that Agenda 21 policy has no power of enforcement and ...

American Policy Center teams up with Constitutional Alliance to Award the “Badge of Honor”

Michigan Representative Gary Glenn along with Michigan Representative Tim Kelly have each been awarded the Constitutional Alliance’s Badge of Honor. In addition, legislative aide Nancy Bareham is the first staff member of a legislator awarded a Badge of Honor. Each of the honorees received their plaques in October. The Badge of Honor is not about opposing smart meters or any other technology. As you read this short essay, you will learn the real issue is representation; the very issue that led to our founding fathers fighting against the British monarchy. Rep. Glenn and Rep. Kelly demonstrated their commitment to listening and acting on the voice of the people rather than the powerful energy providers and their lobbyists in Michigan. Rep. Glenn introduced HB4916, meter choice legislation that allows people to choose a conventional analog meter, and opt out of having a smart meter. Nancy Bareham took on the responsibility of ...

Patriots vs. Politicians 2015

Many of the younger generation must be truly bewildered over the emotions older Americans display when expressing love, devotion, respect and reverence for our country. A tear in the eye for a patriotic song... a hand over the heart as the national anthem plays... a salute to the flag as it passes in a parade. Why would we older folks do that? What frame of reference could younger Americans possibly have? Patriotism, nationalism - even American citizenship are taboo in today's school curriculum. Globalism, diversity, and political correctness trump real history, sound economics, and science. Communism is just another economic system. The Founding Fathers are simply old, dead slave-owning white guys. The UN's Declaration on Human Rights trumps the Declaration of Independence. Where are the heroes for today's young people to admire? Principled leaders who understood the roots of America's greatness now are replaced by blow-dried sound-byte kings whose professional ...

An Activist Memo from Tom DeWeese

How do we make the policies of Agenda 21 a major issue in the upcoming election campaign? Let’s take it directly to the candidates, in front of their own audiences! I’ve prepared three main questions that our activists can ask at candidate nights. There are two versions of the questions: 1. for presidential candidates and a slightly different version for state and local candidates – or even Congressional candidates. Each of these questions pertain to one of the three planks of Agenda 21. The three planks are 1. Social Equity; 2. Economic Prosperity; 3. Ecology (the assault on property rights).  These are the infamous 3 E’s of Agenda 21. Ask these questions in a public forum and watch those clueless candidates squirm. Most won’t have an answer. In fact most won’t even know what you are talking about. They will try to evade or put some positive spin on it ...

Featured News Item Global Warming – the Excuse for Control By Tom DeWeese While Gallup polls show that “Less Than A Third Of Americans Still Worry About Global Warming”, the government, mainstream media, green groups and the UN are screaming that Global Warming (climate change, weather, whatever term they are using for GW today) is going to destroy Earth.  Billions of hard-earned tax dollars are being spent to convince us that our entire life should be dedicated to eradicating this figment of some deranged mind(s). While the world has cooled for over a decade (in spite of moving measuring gauges to heat-sinks -- airports, inner-city locations) the globalists won’t let up.  They chose this myth as their boogeyman to scare us into giving up our freedom and our money, and in spite of it not working, they have decided not to change horses in midstream.  So they will continue to chant ...

Webinar #7: Ghosts of Property Rights Past!

December 14th at 6PM EST It’s Christmas time and so it’s time to expose how the Government’s Scrooge is stealing private property!! This presentation will feature four victims of private property rights grab and government corruption. One of the main reasons we oppose Agenda 21/Sustainable Development policy is that it builds massive government power and corruption, most often felt directly by property owners. Too often we focus on these policies in official forums and meetings. But we can’t forget, the victims of such policy are real, flesh and blood people who have had their lives and dreams shattered. They didn’t ask for this to happen. How are they impacted? What do they do now that the massive force of government has targeted them? How do they fight back? Here are a few of the victims I will feature on December 14th:  Martha Boneta, Farmer: Fauquier County, VA An organic farmer who ...

Webinar #6: Fighting Back From the Inside

This presentation will feature two courageous elected representatives who are standing up to the green machine and having an incredible impact. Carroll County, Maryland Commissioner Richard Rothschild His was the first county in the nation to oust ICLEI and begin the drive to stop Agenda 21/Sustainable policy. But his efforts have made him a main target for the Sustainablists, the news media and other government officials. Commissioner Rothschild will tell you what happens after you win! In fact, that’s when the fight really begins. Massive power politics, betrayal from “friends,” non-stop pressure, and misinformation take their toll. And yet he won reelection with 73% of the vote! Washington State Representative Matt Shea  Representative Shea organized a Freedom Coalition in his state legislature and set out to enact its own agenda to protect property rights and stop the enforcement of massive regulations to impose the Sustainable agenda. He too has met ...

Have you read my book – Now Tell Me I Was Wrong?

You know, it’s been a couple of years since my book was published and I have sold a lot of them as I travel across the country, speaking about Agenda 21. But I took a few minutes during this past weekend to look through the book again and frankly, it still surprises me. If I must say so myself, this is a very good book. It covers a vast number of issues in quick, easy to read essays. These essays are a collection of articles I wrote over a fifteen year period for my newsletter The DeWeese Report. The articles were written during some of the greatest changes to our government, schools, economy and personal freedoms ever witnessed in our nation. The political events of the 1990s and early 2000s led to the outrages of Barack Obama and the massive drive toward an American socialist dictatorship. And I reported on most of it. I wrote some of the first articles ...

Lettuce Forget Chavez

A new film entitled “Cesar Chaves, American Hero,” will invade American theaters this Spring. I’m calling on all patriotic Americans to boycott and picket this piece of Hollywood propaganda trash and give Cesar Chavez the place in American history he actually deserves. Cesar Chaves was a left wing con artist of the first order. I expect as much honesty from a film based on Hollywood’s version of his life. Cesar Chavez is portrayed to the American public as a hero and champion of poor Hispanic migrant workers who were paid mere pennies to work in the grape and lettuce fields of California. According to the tale, the farmers got rich off the backs of the migrant labor, selling the lettuce and making expensive wines from the grapes. Meanwhile the poor, misused migrants carried meager belongings on their backs and traveled from farm to farm, hoping to find work, perhaps a ...

Sustainable Development’ The Evil Facing America

On July 23, 2004, I addressed the fifth annual Freedom 21 Conference in Reno, Nevada. Freedom 21 was the first coalition of limited government/private property advocacy groups. Freedom 21 eventually sponsored 10 national conferences and educated and trained a cadre of leaders to fight Agenda 21. But in 2004, George Bush was in the White House two years after the devastation to individual liberty, free enterprise and private property that defined the Clinton Presidency. Yet, pre-TEA Party, so many Americans failed to understand the threat they faced. The movement was divided into fractured issues. Even the major Conservative organizations refused to mention Agenda 21 (some still do). To this gathering I delivered a call to arms. We had circled the wagons so tightly, we only had one left. I said we needed to charge! Stop being on the defensive. Go straight at the Sustainablists. Take it to the people. Amazingly, ...

The Growing Threat of Smart Meters

Sustainable Development is code for a policy designed to transform human society, essentially eliminating individual life decisions and replacing them with top – down, one-size-fits-all government control. In steady fashion, the agenda for this new policy, designed at the international level, is put into place piece by piece with a new government council here, and new regulation there, each designed to appear as a “local” development program. Like the proverbial frog in the slowly boiling pot, many Americans fail to notice the rise in government heat. The main course of action to impose the new agenda is through the pretense of environmental protection; “Sorry about your rights, but if we don’t save the planet, then we will all perish!” And so with the devastation of a thousand pin pricks, America and its form or government is being changed through the creation of non-elected boards, councils and regional governments, designed to ...

The Key Word In Opposing a Con Con

The call for a new Constitutional Convention (Con Con), particularly from Conservative circles, is starting to grow at an alarming rate. Several Conservative organizations, particularly the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the Goldwater Institute (among others) are telling Conservative state legislators that they can call for a Con Con and control the subject and the outcome of such an event. That is simply not true. The reason: “Precedent.” There has been only one Con Con in U.S. history. That was in 1787. Delegates to this gathering (not originally planned as a Con Con) were given specific instructions by their states and a very strongly worded resolution by Congress limiting the meeting to the “sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation.” Those instructions were completely ignored. As soon as the delegates arrived in Philadelphia, the doors were closed and the meeting was kept secret until finally they ...

Protecting Man’s Rights in a Changing World

Every American knows something is very wrong in our nation. Daily, government grows more powerful and intrusive at every level. Many have begun to feel they have no say over their private property or even their own lives. It started on the international level as various plans, ideas and treaties thoroughly outlined an agenda to completely change and curtail human activity. Most prominent in these plans is one written and delivered by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to the UN-sponsored Earth Summit in 1992. It was called Agenda 21. Proponents of the ideas outlined in Agenda 21 say it is just a suggestion with no teeth for enforcement in the United States. However, since 1992, there has been a definite correlation between the ideas set forth in Agenda 21 and a massive growth of American government under the policy of Sustainable Development – the exact policy outlined in Agenda 21. According to ...
