Readers, you will be hearing more about Agenda 21 in the coming weeks and months—simply put it’s a backdoor effort to take your property rights. I know the issue isn’t as titillating as terrorism, illegal immigrants or the on-going debt battles, but it’s here and it’s insidious as this article at The Blaze points out. As the Progressives move to control the land (and the food supply) one might even say, first they came for the small INDEPENDENT farmers.
Is the US government starting to implement the policies of the United Nation’s plan for global management of people and resources known as Agenda 21? The latest efforts out of the Department of Transportation (DOT) seem to indicate this is happening. And they are starting by targeting America’s farming communities with costly and oppressive regulations.
In Late May, the DOT proposed a rule change for farm equipment, and if it this allowed to take effect, it will place significant regulatory pressure on small farms and family farms all across America – costing them thousands of dollars and possibly forcing many of them out of business. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), part of the Department of Transportation (DOT), wants new standards that would require all farmers and everyone on the farm to obtain a CDL (Commercial Drivers License) in order to operate any farming equipment. The agency is going to accomplish this by reclassifying all farm vehicles and implements as Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs).
(It is also important to note here that DOT Secretary Ray LaHood holds a seat on the newly created White House Rural Council. A powerful group whose members have ties to George Soros and The Center For American Progress.)
The move by the DOT appears to be “legislation through regulation.” By reclassifying all farm vehicles and implements as Commercial Vehicles, the federal government will now be able to claim regulatory control over the estimated 800,000 farm workers in America, at the same time, overriding the rights of the states.

Time to start learning about Agenda 21!
We are fortunate in Maryland to have a couple of leading investigators and activists to help us learn more. Carroll County Commissioner Richard Rothschild and CC resident Scott Strzelczyk have been working on the issue for a couple of years. Here is one article they posted at American Thinker about the United Nations agenda to give you some background.
Tea Party groups and other conservative groups should plan educational meetings and see if you can get these patriots to educate your community. I recently heard Commissioner Rothschild at the Thursday Meeting. In Maryland Agenda 21 is coming to you as Plan Maryland.
The Maryland Conservative Action Network Conference scheduled for October 29th in Annapolis will feature Commissioner Rothschild and Agenda 21. Other speakers will address Shariah law, voter integrity, reforming our educational system, unions and more.
