The Demise of Our Rural Areas

IMG_0108To all of us living in Rural Areas: Farmers, ranchers and people living in rural areas may lose their lands and homes. The United Nations Agenda 21, which the Obama administration supports, calls for governments to take control of all land use and not leave any of the decision making in the hands of private property owners.  It is assumed that people are not good stewards of their land and the government will do a better job if they are in control.  Moreover, people should be rounded up off the land and packed into human settlements, or islands of human habitation, close to employment centers and transportation.

Agenda 21 already has started.  Comcast has been removing RFD-TV (a TV channel focusing on the rural lifestyle) from many of their cable systems over the last year. David Cohen, VP at Comcast, explained the dropping of RFD-TV in Colorado and New Mexico. At a House Judiciary Hearing on the merger (with Direct-TV, Time-Warner, AT&T) Cohen stated Comcast is “primarily an urban-cluster cable company”.  That did not sit well with the rural Congressmen on the panel. Cohen gave no explanation for adding Al Jazeera America two days after taking RFD-TV down on those same Colorado and New Mexico cable systems, or for carrying BBC World News as an independent channel on all their systems.

President Obama signed his 86th executive order (13575) on June 9, 2011 which established the White House Rural Council (WHRC). According to The Blaze, the Executive Order seems to be in line with the United Nations Agenda 21, as it is designed “to begin taking control over almost all aspects of the lives of 16 percent of the American people.”  Can you picture Federal Government Farms and Ranches that were once in the public’s hands?

Evidence of this can be found in Section One of the Executive Order, which reads:

Section 1. Policy. Sixteen percent of the American population lives in rural counties. Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead. These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation. Though rural communities face numerous challenges, they also present enormous economic potential. The Federal Government has an important role to play in order to expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands.

Those are Obama’s words, not mine.  IMG_0138
