Lakes Area Tea Party hosting Property Rights expert Tom Deweese January 11, 2016
In August 2015, Tom Deweese made a swing through Michigan.
He is coming back, and with urgent news. The Progressive left is still plodding on with a ‘new and improved’ Agenda 21 guaranteed to relinquish us of our private property rights. From the LATP Website:

Awareness of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development is racing across the nation as citizens in community after community are learning what their city planners are actually up to. As attention grows, so does the demand for Tom DeWeese’s riveting presentation on

I believe that Mr. DeWeese is associated with the American Policy "Center"...not the American Policy "Institute" as the LATP (as of today) indicates..
While Agenda 21 education is a worthy pursuit...why are we not practically 'applying' the lessons learned from this relatively old 'heads up' document? When a man of this stature comes to town with dot-connecting information that he can never fully impart in one speech...are we ready to give him names here locally who we believe are (also) on the tip of the spear and which would help coordination the fight nationally?
As conservatives, we have wasted far too much time on 'conceptual' end-of-America-as-we-know-it scenarios. It is here. Those who are bringing these policies to life every day (already) absolutely LOVE to see us sitting in a room and gazing at our navels rather than naming names and formulating specific battle plans; especially in an election year.
There are scores of Agenda 21 issues less than a 5 minute drive from every single person in this state's residence being formulated right now down at your Township Hall through recently (hurriedly) changed Master Plans, zoning changes, transparency failures and too many others to list here. We failed the first time around at this because we didn't concentrate/start at the bottom, work our way up. and spread fear throughout the ranks. The Bottom Line: If we assigned but one heart felt topic to each patriot at the local level and progressed then on to the county/state battles...most of us would be stuck trying to rally even enough support to just tackle what was happening outside the county seat. We have ignored the younger generation in this fight because we (the gray hairs) are afraid that they will bring up the necessary topic of shared sacrifice and simple math. We don't want them fighting at the local level to free us up for the state fights because why?..we're afraid that they'll be fighting the exact same people that they've been told to 'look up to' leading the same local government that they've been told to trust.
All politics is local. Mr. DeWeese can't help you if you don't connect the dots for him or have him connect you with others in the same boat perhaps winning a fight elsewhere with tactics unheard of. Those promoting agendas such as this don't fear Mr. DeWeese...they fear those he speaks to actually ferreting out those who believe in this nonsense...who day in/day out have the ear of those with the money and power to support it.
Money flows the path of least resistance. There was an Mlive article recently on the DeVoss family's recent philanthropy strategies and how easily other big donors are 'convinced' to do the right thing. If we aren't applying that same strategy in our daily political lives or convincing our children that we have forced their lives to indeed become political (by necessity)...we and more importantly 'they' are most certainly lost.
Well said, sir. If we desire to fix DC, we must start by fixing City Hall. The scoundrels in the state and national capitol learned their behavior by getting away with it at the local level. Those advancing Agenda 21, and other means of collapsing our constitutional republic from within, know this, and are well aware that no more than 2.27% of the voters are paying attention and actually engaged in doing something about it, but are currently so disorganized that even local resistance is a herculean task.
As nearly every leading light of this nation’s Founding Generation repeatedly counseled, government is exactly two things – force and power – and left unchecked it will leverage the former in the relentless pursuit of consolidating the latter. That is why the founding generation always understood that the primary safeguard to freedom is active citizen oversight of the government. The local government that we "grey hairs" have taught our children to trust is just as unworthy of that trust as the national behemoth in Washington, and must be watched just as vigilantly.
According to a colleague of mine, the whole point behind overburdening the working class (including the working poor) with oppressive taxation and overregulation, is to force them to stay so focused on basic survival that they have no time to pay attention to what the government is doing, and no means to get involved even if they do figure it out. (This is in direct contrast to the indolent poor, whose docility can be ensured with uninterrupted access to their bread and circuses.) Think about that for a moment or two.
I absolutely agree that we ought to be engaging every citizen, who's old enough to legally drive, in at least the local fight . . . because they surely aren't going to learn this in school.
'...and are well aware that no more than 2.27% of the voters are paying attention and actually engaged in doing something about it, but are currently so disorganized that even local resistance is a herculean task..."
Add the fact that we don't (apparently) seem to agree on even the most basic of (majority) principles beyond what was offered over 200 years ago in a much different political atmosphere. Organization is everything. Most of us are fighting all by ourselves on separate battlefields with no cohesion whatsoever between likeminded patriots. Young people are kept from joining our ranks as they are not allowed to speak of shared sacrifices or the very simple math surrounding them.
I wouldn't worry about any two of us getting together in the same room let alone a hundred of us or more after the nationwide political thrashing that has taken place of late here in our state. For heaven's sake we don't even care about what is going on down at our local schools. We have no formal network in place to be kept 'real time' appraised of what is even being taught..and that is with electronic 'everything' making it infinitely easier to FOIA whatever it is in blazes that we may want to know about today's brainwashing methodology.
Becoming an "enemy of the state" for merely questioning the taking away of rights or for peering behind closed doors is one thing.
Propping ourselves up as if anybody cares what we say after the votes of this past year sliding by without very public outrage of any consequence happening absolutely anywhere...is just plain disheartening.
My advice would be to give as much as you can to Jason's campaign...as he might be the only one up there come next year who understands from where we came and how far we indeed need to go (the rest seem to believe that November is a loooong time away with plenty of time left to get the ball rolling...which disqualifies them in my book but 5 days into the new year).
There are some of us who already apply effort, and have further plans once we are in office.. Taking the money away from the process IS the way to stop it. HUD is one our biggest enemies with regard to A21, and doesn't constitutionally exist.
Perhaps if it is illegal to accept HUD money?
