Governor Haslam Will Not Sign Anti-Agenda 21 Resolution

Thank God, there is at least one Republican who has not jumped on the paranoid nut-fringe bandwagon!

Unless you are active in the tea party or very active in the Republican Party, you probably have never heard of Agenda 21.  However, a lot of people are very concerned about it.  Earlier this year the Republican National Committee issued a resolution condemning it and in the just concluded Tennessee legislative session our Republican-dominated state legislature passed a resolution warning of the dangers of Agenda 21. Governor Haslam has refused to sign that Resolution and it will go into effect without his signature. However, a resolution is nothing but the legislature expressing an opinion about something and has no force of law.

Agenda 21 is a 20-year-old nonbinding U.N. agreement signed by 178 nations that encourages environmentally sustainable development. It has no force in law and has never been ratified as a treaty by the US Congress.  Many see it as an attack on individual liberties and property rights and some say it is a plan for mass murder of 95% of the world’s population.

The paranoid conspiracy theorist of the long-discredited John Birch Society is the primary force behind “educating” people about Agenda 21. I have read numerous articles and blog post about it and watched video. I am trying to read it and have read 8 of the boring 40 chapters and do not see anything to be terribly alarmed about so far. I see some things that I disagree with and much that I do agree with but nothing that is terribly alarming.  I really doubt that any of the Republicans in the state legislature who voted to warn us of the dangers of Agenda 21 or any of the local republican leaders who are urging us to be informed of the dangers of Agenda 21 have read it. 

People all over the country are spotting Agenda 21 policies. If the paranoid hysteria was not so alarming, it would be funny. Here is a list of things that are supposedly Agenda 21 policies and things we should really be concerned about. 
It is unfortunate that people all over the country are being “educated” and are trusting people who labeled President Dwight D. Eisenhower a willing tool of the Communist conspiracy and who subscribe to a theory that ever since about 1776 all of the political movements, including Nazism and Communism, and all the wars and depression have been orchestrated by the Illuminati and today the Illuminati continue to pull the strings though sinister groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations, The Tri-lateral Commission and the Bilderbergs .

I have been so disappointed that people who I though of as intelligent and informed have jumped on this John Birch Society tin-foil hat band wagon.  I am proud of Governor Haslam for not doing so.

Post Script: Governor Haslam's office has not issued a statement on the Governor's refusal to sign the Anti-Agenda 21resolution.  Ken Marrero of  Blue Collar Muse is the source of the information that the Governor had allowed the Joint House Resolution on Agenda 21to go into effect without his signature.
