March 22, 2013 — Life and civilization as we know it right here in Lassen County are in grave danger from the environmentalists and their globalist agenda.
Unless the people band together now and stop the implementation of Agenda 21 — a non-binding United Nations action plan signed by the leaders of 178 counties, including President George H.W. Bush, at a conference in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 — land and water management policies created by our own government and administered by non-governmental organizations will end the human habitation of Lassen County.
That’s the message Modoc County Independent TEA Party patriot and Voice of Freedom Radio pundit Doug Knox and others shared at the Lassen County TEA Party Patriots meeting held at the Pizza Factory Tuesday, March 12.
Knox urged the local TEA Party patriots to find some leadership and stand up and do what’s right to protect the country from the effects of Agenda 21.
“You’re old enough people to know we’ve got to do something,” Knox said. “As a strategy, you might not like what I have to say, but you cannot sit in Susanville with every butt in a building like this and talk about current events. The only thing you’re doing is like regurgitating to the same people all the time … You’ve got to get out and talk to people and get ideas and join your hands.”
While Knox was expected to speak on Agenda 21, Lassen County TEA Party organizer Carol Byers spoke on that topic before Knox’s presentation and passed out several handouts.
According to one handout Byers distributed, Agenda 21 is “the action plan to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all information, all energy and all human beings in the world. Far from being a ‘conspiracy theory,’ this is an actual United Nations plan … ”
The plan, according to the handout, “is implemented first locally through plans called
Sustainable Development consisting of the three E’s: Equity (the ‘collective’ trumps individual rights), Economy (redistribution of wealth) and Environment (nature above man).”
Byers said a number of buzz words are associated with Agenda 21 — including smart growth, wildlands projects, Brazilian cities, sustainable communities, green jobs, green building codes, going green, alternative energy, local vision facilitator, historic preservation, conservation easement and local government sustainability.
By receiving grant funding, “A lot of the counties and the cities are involved in this and don’t even knowing they’re doing that,” Byers said.
Byers even showed a map that she said indicated the plan called for the end of human habitation in all of Lassen County.
Cell phone warning
Prior to Knox’s presentation, Bob Jones and Jean Hodge provided information on the government surveillance program known as the International Mobile Subscriber Identity program.
They said the program, which collects personal and GPS data from cell phones, violates the first, fourth and fifth amendments to the U.S. Constitution because local, state and federal agencies have access to this information without authorization or order by a judge or a court.
A handout they distributed alleged the government gets away with this kind of behavior because the information collected is “law enforcement sensitive” and “it can shut off a phone, intercept calls/texts and pinpoint a cell phone within two meters (and) can track a phone when it moves from room to room.”
The program has been used by “bad guys” in Europe and “reportedly (has) been used in (the) U.S. for traffic violations or stops” and “ushers in the militarization of the country,” according to the handout.
Jones said he frequently disagrees with the American Civil Liberties Union, but the organization was “doing something good” when it opposed this program.
Since Knox said Byers had already covered the topic of Agenda 21, he said he would instead explain how local officials implement this United Nations program.
“If I had half of this (number of) people in Alturas, you know what I’d be?” Knox asked. “Damn lucky. This Carol has got you guys whipped up into a frenzy … I was going to talk on Agenda 21, but Carol did most of it for me, so what I’ll do, instead of being general about it, I’ll tell you who’s doing it. You might not like what I say, but pardon the expression, that’s just too damn bad.”
Knox said the long arm of Agenda 21 reaches right here into Lassen County. He spoke about the efforts to regulate the Pitt River drainage, the largest drainage in the state of California that touches Northern Lassen County.
“It’s water, that’s what they’re after,” Knox said. “See that guy with that black shirt on? I can control you. How can I do it? By controlling your water. You don’t have no (sic) water? It’s a necessity of life. And that’s what they’re doing in the 11 western states … It’s all the Sage-Grouse Initiative.”
According to Knox, “They don’t want you on the land in these rural areas … The Wildlands Project (and) the grouse is a tool to get the cattle off the range in the western states.”
But he said the environmentalists “messed up” by trying to improve sage-grouse habitat by encouraging the growth of native grasses to create a place where the birds can hide.
“How many people in here think, does (sic) not know what the hell cattle does to grass,” Knox said.
The audience laughed,
“You follow me?” Knox asked. “Yeah, the environmentalists will have to have a two-year study on that.”
“The people in this room need to know,” Knox said. “It don’t (sic) make a dang if it’s in Montana, Colorado, Wyoming or where the heck they are — the environmentalists are all damn bad people. They’re not environmentalists. They’re actually domestic terrorists because they want to run us off the land.”
A hearty round of applause and even a yelled out, “Amen.”
Knox complained about a court decision that affected grazing in Modoc County.
“You know dad-gum well these environmentalists go all around the county looking for a liberal federal judge that’s going to give them what they want,” Knox said. “Isn’t that true?”
“Yeah,” the audience yelled.
Knox explained how Agenda 21 and Senate Bill 1672 provide the framework that moves the policy from the United Nations to the federal government to the California Department of Water Resources through Integrated Regional Water Management Programs.
“How do I know?” Knox asked. “Simple. You’ve just got to be well connected with the people at the right place, and attend certain meetings, and you can find out things. The IRWMs came down from the U.N. to the feds. This is their agenda … The feds did not know what to do with it because it was international, so they kicked it off over here to one of your favorite subjects in California called the Department of Water Resources.”
According to the Department of Water Resources website, “Integrated Regional Water Management is a collaborative effort to manage all aspects of water resources in a region. IRWM crosses jurisdictional, watershed and political boundaries; involves multiple agencies, stakeholders, individuals and groups; and attempts to address the issues and differing perspectives of all the entities involved through mutually beneficial solutions.”
Knox also criticized First Assembly District representative Brian Dahle, former Lassen County District 3 Supervisor, for his 12 year role as a director of the Sierra Nevada Conservancy — an organization he said is furthering Agenda 21’s policies.
Knox said he could support Dahle as a farmer and a rancher, but not as an environmentalist. The conservancy, which administers Proposition 84 grants, results in the people “paying for your own damn demise.”
Despite his 21 years of service in the military, Knox said he “never thought our own government would turn against its people.”
When asked for a response to Knox’s allegations, Dahle said he stands by his record, the state and federal constitutions and absolutely does not support Agenda 21.
Knox claimed, “You know there’s 1,200 people up there (Modoc County) lost their farms because they shut their water off. You know the federal government give (sic) ‘em a lot of money instead of flood irrigating, put real lines in, they give (sic) ‘em money to put pumps deep down into the aquifer, maybe down as much as 1,500 feet. That was a real smart deal.”
According to Knox, Lassen County residents should form a committee and find out who’s responsible for making the Pitt River water plan law because non-governmental organizations push Agenda 21.
“No one has control of them,” Knox said, “but it’s your money that they’re spending. Wouldn’t you like to know what the heck they’re doing? It’s bad, folks.”
Knox also alleged government-funded programs are using this grant money to purchase California lakes in order to control the water — restrict its use or divert it into other watersheds.
“They’re buying water they will use against you when the curtain falls,” Knox said.
