Form-based Codes: Replacing the everyday American City with the ‘Ideal Communist City’

Form-Based Code /fôrm-bāsed kōd/ noun A form-based code is a land development regulation that fosters predictable built results and a high-quality public realm by using physical form (rather than separation of uses) as the organizing principle for the code. A form-based code is a regulation, not a mere guideline, adopted into city, town, or county law. A form-based code offers a powerful alternative to conventional zoning regulation. Several years ago, I wrote a series of articles for News with Views, explaining Sustainable Development. Today two of them are popping up regularly in the media. Back when I wrote these two articles, people would not believe that all this planning and organizing could have been dreamed up by the Power Elite, let along set down as part of the blueprint for Agenda 21. Read that definition above of Form-based Code again. Note: “a regulation, not a mere guideline for every city, town, ...

American Policy Center – New Voices and Growing!

I’m excited to report that the American Policy Center (APC) is growing as our impact and influence are having more of an effect on the nation’s political debate than anytime in our thirty one year history. Through a huge presence in radio programs, issue papers, and public appearances, APC has almost single-handedly made the issue of Agenda 21 one of the most discussed subjects in the nation. In January, 2018, APC plans to roll out its biggest project ever, intended to make the assault on private property rights a central issue at all levels of government. It will begin with the launching of a new book entitled “Sustainable, the War on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals.” To follow the book’s release will be the establishment of a new property rights network of organizations, elected officials and individual activists. Each will be promoting solutions and strategies for positive approaches to ...

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 ...

Sledgehammer Alert: Drain the Swamp

I have learned from some inside sources in the Trump Transition Team that massive pressure is being applied from establishment Republicans and from the Left. They don’t want Trump to drain the swamp. They want to keep the status quo! What else is new in Washington, DC? That’s why it is urgent for the Trump Team to feel pressure from you – the ones who elected and supported him. We must overpower this voice of control and demand that President Elect Trump stick to his guns and clean out the den of vipers in our government as promised. That can’t happen if the same vile bunch who have always run things are put in positions of power to protect their own turf in this new Administration. Believe me, they are good at protecting their own interests. The Left, of course, wants to derail everything Donald Trump stands for. Never has ...

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 ...

The all out attack has begun

The all out attack has begun. The Obama government is using every legal threat and intimidation tactics to shut us up. Cities are being sued as HUD is targeting your neighborhood to control your private property and destroy its value. Obama has just illegally signed the UN’s Climate Change Treaty and the Senate says nothing. And to those of us fighting to speak out and stop them, Obama’s Justice Department and the Attorneys General in 20 states are threatening us with harassment, intimidation, fines, and imprisonment. Fact: If we are forced into silence then freedom is dead in the United States of America! Please make an immediate online contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more to help the American Policy Center stand up to this growing tyranny so I can continue to work and train activists and local elected representatives to fight back and defeat their efforts to silence ...

Important Developments In The Fight to Stop Agenda 21

24 years. That’s how long it’s taken. 24 years of sounding the warnings and issuing the pleas for someone to listen about the great threat to our nation, to our system of government, to our property rights and to our children’s future, from the UN’s Agenda 21. Finally… finally… it’s starting to happen. What has changed? Elected officials – the ones charged with developing policies for our communities and our state governments are starting to listen. In fact, many aren’t simply listening, they are openly seeking me out to teach them how to stop Agenda 21 policies. Let me give you some examples. As I reported a few months ago, I addressed a legislative committee in Maine to give them the background and origin of some of the anti-property rights - pro-Agenda 21 policies they are facing. I assure you they had never heard much of what I told them ...

Animal Rights and You: Using Americans Love for Animals to Steal your Rights

When people think of "animal rights" they think that taking good care of their family pet is the goal. It sounds right. It sounds like good common sense. After all, who could possibly be against taking better care of animals?   Unfortunately, this feel good idea is the polar opposite of what the animal rights movement is truly about. They want you to think they are against the "abuse" of animals when they appeal for donations from you, they just don't tell you that they view animal ownership itself as the abuse they are against The animal rights movement seems like it is focused on being kinder to animals as a moral guise to cover their true activities which seeks to create an invisible barrier between humans and animals. To make a moral equality between the life of an ant and the life of a child.   To end all human ownership ...

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 #9: Common Core: The Curriculum for Agenda 21

Webinar #9: March 8th at 6PM EST Rotten to the Core:Common Core is the Education Curriculum for Agenda 21 It’s obvious to almost everyone that our schools are failing to teach standard academics. But that’s just the tip of the ice burg. The real purpose of public education has transformed into behavior modification to mold our children into being the perfect “Global Village Idiots” to live in the “sustainable” world of the future. They won’t question authority. They won’t know anything about America’s past and why it was a special place. They will readily accept the “Globally Acceptable Truth” handed down by their masters and they are being prepared to be simple cogs in the wheel of a global “ecoligarchy” where every part of their lives are pre-determined by someone else. That is Common Core. My guest for this special webinar session is Michael Chapman. Mike is head of American ...

Freedom fighters labeled “terrorists”

Sledgehammer Action Alert A renewed drive to label all freedom activists as “terrorists” has been launched by the far Left. Included in this email is a petition to Rep. Michael McCaul (TX), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.  Your petition demands an immediate investigation into the activities of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). It’s urgent that Chairman McCaul hear from you today. The reason: The Southern Poverty Law Center is working directly with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to silence the growing freedom movement. You may recall that a couple of years ago the Southern Poverty Law Center helped write a report for the Missouri Fusion Center (MIAC) labeling (among other things) anyone who voted for presidential candidate Ron Paul to be a potential terrorist. That report was followed by another report called the “Domestic Extremism Lexicon,” issued by the Department of Homeland Security, that said supporters ...

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 ...
