To those unfamiliar with the UN’s global government attack on freedom, capitalism and the United States, the ambiguous term “sustainable development” doesn’t have much meaning. It’s deliberately vague and can mean pretty much anything anyone chooses. Under the UN it means a “Nanny World” of global Marxism and austerity, with every person on the planet living at the same level of destitution and minimized resource consumption. To the degree that it is achieved by lifting up the poor, it’s equally dependent upon a corresponding degradation of the living standards of the more affluent.
The people of the United States pay the nanny’s salary and all expenses, which are extremely hefty and burdensome. It is the opposite of the system we Americans have thrived under in the past and which the rest of the world, led by our own hijacked government, is now working feverishly to destroy.
On Friday the anti-American global government, the United Nations, formally adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which they depict as a positive set of bold new Global Goals. It all depends upon which side of the equality equation one resides. For America and the West, it is a recipe for disaster, a hemlock cocktail that we didn’t order but which is being delivered to our table nonetheless, courtesy of the management; the global government cabal.
In a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York City which opened the UN sustainable Development Summit, our chief protagonist, General Secretary Ban Ki-moon said, “The new agenda is a promise by leaders to all people everywhere. It is an agenda for people, to end poverty in all its forms – an agenda for the planet, our common home.” It’s an agenda for all nations to subordinate themselves to UN dictates, and to surrender their wealth for redistribution. Somehow those stark realities became lost in the midst of all the feel-good grand proclamations and naiveté, by design.
It’s important to bear in mind while many of these vague and idealistic goals may seem worthwhile; most are completely unachievable, such as the first one below, and all come with a hefty price tag that must be paid by someone. That someone is the American people and our fellow Westerners. We, our nation and our way of life are under attack by the United Nations and by our government. It is an attack which, if allowed to proceed to its unnatural conclusion will be the end of us. That fact cannot be overstated. This is a takeover of the United States, our resources, our society and our sovereignty. We still have the power to say no, we can evict these global parasites and reclaim our sovereignty. All it requires is leadership, recognition of the threat and a sincere desire to preserve the greatest country on earth.
If we fail to do so and they are successful in implementing this global agreement and enforcing it, America as we have known it will cease to exist. It’s that simple. The following seventeen goals are from the UN document, which can be viewed in its entirety here.
Please note the unrealistic nature of the grand proclamations and goals, all intended to pull at the humanitarian heart strings and vilify those who resist the takeover as callous, uncaring and selfish. Pay attention to the insertion of central control in the UN over every aspect of our lives as Agenda 21 continues to be implemented without our approval and without any debate. It’s just being done, unilaterally, by those who have hijacked our government. The goals below are each linked to their original page on the UN website along with a short and in many cases disturbing excerpt of the UN’s own justification for their objectives.
Also pay particular note to the objectives of economic development and equality. That money has to come from somewhere and as our standard of living is reduced we all become more equal. It’s also worth noting that climate change and “sustainable development” are prominently featured as a justification for everything, in spite of both terms having no real world relevance.
Goal 1: END POVERTY IN ALL ITS FORMS EVERYWHERE
Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality.
Goal 2: END HUNGER, ACHIEVE FOOD SECURITY AND IMPROVED NUTRITION AND PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
It is time to rethink how we grow, share and consume our food.
If done right, agriculture, forestry and fisheries can provide nutritious food for all and generate decent incomes, while supporting people-centered rural development and protecting the environment.
Right now, our soils, freshwater, oceans, forests and biodiversity are being rapidly degraded. Climate change is putting even more pressure on the resources we depend on, increasing risks associated with disasters such as droughts and floods.
Goal 3: ENSURE HEALTHY LIVES AND PROMOTE WELL-BEING FOR ALL AT ALL AGES
Ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being for all at all ages is essential to sustainable development.
Goal 4: ENSURE INCLUSIVE AND QUALITY EDUCATION FOR ALL AND PROMOTE LIFELONG LEARNING
Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development.
Goal 5: ACHIEVE GENDER EQUALITY AND EMPOWER ALL WOMEN AND GIRLS
Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large.
Goal 6: ENSURE ACCESS TO WATER AND SANITATION FOR ALL
There is sufficient fresh water on the planet to achieve this. But due to bad economics or poor infrastructure, every year millions of people, most of them children, die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene.
Goal 7: ENSURE ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE, RELIABLE, SUSTAINABLE AND MODERN ENERGY FOR ALL
Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential.
Sustainable energy is opportunity – it transforms lives, economies and the planet.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is leading a Sustainable Energy for All initiative to ensure universal access to modern energy services, improve efficiency and increase use of renewable sources.
Goal 8: PROMOTE INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC GROWTH, EMPLOYMENT AND DECENT WORK FOR ALL
A continued lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investments and under-consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying democratic societies: that all must share in progress.
Sustainable economic growth will require societies to create the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs that stimulate the economy while not harming the environment.
Goal 9: BUILD RESILIENT INFRASTRUCTURE, PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE INDUSTRIALIZATION AND FOSTER INNOVATION
Investments in infrastructure – transport, irrigation, energy and information and communication technology – are crucial to achieving sustainable development and empowering communities in many countries.
Inclusive and sustainable industrial development is the primary source of income generation, allows for rapid and sustained increases in living standards for all people, [except Westerners] and provides the technological solutions to environmentally sound industrialization.
Goal 10: REDUCE INEQUALITY WITHIN AND AMONG COUNTRIES
There is growing consensus that economic growth is not sufficient to reduce poverty if it is not inclusive and if it does not involve the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental.
To reduce inequality, policies should be universal in principle paying attention to the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations.
Goal 11: MAKE CITIES INCLUSIVE, SAFE, RESILIENT AND SUSTAINABLE
However, many challenges exist to maintaining cities in a way that continues to create jobs and prosperity while not straining land and resources.
The challenges cities face can be overcome in ways that allow them to continue to thrive and grow, while improving resource use and reducing pollution and poverty.
Goal 12: ENSURE SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION PATTERNS
Sustainable consumption and production is about promoting resource and energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure, and providing access to basic services, green and decent jobs and a better quality of life for all [Again, not the Americans or Westerners – We’re paying the bill but excluded from the investments]. Its implementation helps to achieve overall development plans, reduce future economic, environmental and social costs, strengthen economic competitiveness and reduce poverty.
Sustainable consumption and production aims at “doing more and better with less,” increasing net welfare gains from economic activities by reducing resource use.
It also requires a systemic approach and cooperation among actors operating in the supply chain… engaging consumers through awareness-raising and education on sustainable consumption and lifestyles, providing consumers with adequate information through standards and labels and engaging in sustainable public procurement.
Goal 13: TAKE URGENT ACTION TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE AND ITS IMPACTS
Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow.
People are experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events. [More of the usual false alarmist claims are in the original text] The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.
[Here’s their “justification” for requiring worldwide participation by every nation and the ability to control every country.]But climate change is a global challenge that does not respect national borders. Emissions anywhere affect people everywhere. It is an issue that requires solutions that need to be coordinated at the international level and it requires international cooperation to help developing countries move toward a low-carbon economy. To address climate change, countries are working to adopt a global agreement in Paris this December.
Goal 14: CONSERVE AND SUSTAINABLY USE THE OCEANS, SEAS AND MARINE RESOURCES
Careful management of this essential global resource is a key feature of a sustainable future.
Goal 15: SUSTAINABLY MANAGE FORESTS, COMBAT DESERTIFICATION, HALT AND REVERSE LAND DEGRADATION, HALT BIODIVERSITY LOSS
Deforestation and desertification – caused by human activities and climate change – pose major challenges to sustainable development and have affected the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in the fight against poverty.
Goal 16: PROMOTE JUST, PEACEFUL AND INCLUSIVE SOCIETIES
…dedicated to the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, the provision of access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels.
Goal 17: REVITALIZE THE GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. [Money going in every direction from a web of sources makes it much harder to track and much more lucrative.]
Urgent action is needed to mobilize, redirect and unlock the transformative power of trillions of dollars of private resources to deliver on sustainable development objectives. Long-term investments, including foreign direct investment, are needed in critical sectors, especially in developing countries. [Where few see the fraud and those that do are often in on it]
It isn’t hard to figure out who will be left out of the benefits when all of this new inclusiveness and “sustainable” everything is being created. Just as the foreigners are now being given preference within the United States for everything soon foreign nations will be given the advantage. We can only imagine, since it hasn’t yet been revealed, just how much of this type of outrageous and destructive anti-Americanism is hidden in Obamatrade.
As hard as it was being pushed by the criminals in the executive branch and the legislature, in conjunction with foreign commissions, we can be certain that it is not a benefit to the American people. There is no good news in this declaration for the American people, just more of the same anti-Americanism, much of it at the hands of our own “leadership.”
