Agenda 21 and Food

UN Agenda 21 is being implemented across America, and is adversely affecting our farms and farmland – the source of our food supply.

 

The President’s newly formed “White House Rural Council”  under Executive Order 13575 incorporates “Sustainable Communities” in its agenda – a buzzword pointing to Agenda 21.

 

Section One of 13575 states the following:

Section 1. Policy. Sixteen percent of the American population lives in rural counties. Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead. These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation. Though rural communities face numerous challenges, they also present enormous economic potential. The Federal Government has an important role to play in order to expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands.

See Does The New ‘White House Rural Council’ = UN’s Agenda 21? for background on this executive order.

It appears that implementation of this Executive Order are being pushed forward.  The Department of Transportation (DOT) seems to be targeting America’s farming communities with costly and oppressive regulations.

According to the Blaze, 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).”

In a nation where family farms have used all family members from a young age to work on the farm, operate the equiment and drive the equipment, this could put many small family farms out of business.

“This proposed change literally means family farms could no longer legally allow young workers, not old enough to drive and seniors who no longer drive on the public streets, to operate a tractor… even on the family’s private property”, the Blaze reports.
