NGOs

List of United Nation’s Agenda 21 – Non- Government Agencies

First of all, NGOs, Non-Government Agencies, were defined by the United Nations (a foreign entity) in 1945.  An NGO is a non-profit corporation that is independent from government control.    NGOs main purpose is to develop a bottom up support for world govertnment – to give the illusion that grassroots are in support of world government. It doesn’t mean they don’t make profit.  They do, but the profits (after paying salaries, projects etc) are to go back into the corporation.   No tax is paid on the surplus profit that goes back to the corporation.  Of course non-profits do pay a different kind of price: strict regulations on what they can and can’t do – look up the rules for a 501c (another tool to control us for the ‘benefit’ of some tax relief).  For the purposes here, it is important to mention that the many government type NGOs forming in America and around the world are blurring the lines between government and the private sector.  Many of the NGOs, like ICLEI, are creating rules, regulations, ordinances for governments,  in essence becoming government.  They are reaching well beyond the declared functions of governments defined in our U.S. Constitution and other country’s laws of the land.  They also get the freedom to do this with no accountability to the people.   Citizens do not vote for representation, leaders or have any say what so ever in who runs these NGOs.   1945 was the groundwork to pave the way to the many, over 100,000 NGOs, today.   Many as you see below have a direct impact in the way we live – the unknown, and unaccountable government.

2 Types of NGOs according to World Bank:

  1. Operational NGOs – implement projects to achieve small scale change, mobilize financial resources, materials and volunteers to create localized programs in the field.  An example is a city’s Redevelopment Plan

  2. Campaigning/Advocacy NGOs – seek large scale change through influencing the political system – they hold demonstrations and events that keep their cause in the media.

NGOs working on the bottom up and the CFR working on the top down together will smash the sovereignty of the United States of America and other countries and shift all power to the United Nations. 

Some NGOs do both.

  1. AARP – American Association of Retired Persons – 1958 by Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus – one of the most powerful lobbying groups in US – claims over 40 million members

  2. Amnesty International – 1.8 million members – human rights advocacy/campaigning

  3. Cool Cities – ‘Solving global climate one city at a time’

  5. SFI – Sustainable Forestry Initiative

  6. Trilateral Commission – 1973 – Originally created to bring together experienced leaders within the private sector to discuss issues of global concern in Europe, North America and Asia.   Now it has grown to include members from more countries.  Check out more on their website.

  7. UNESCO – United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization – apparently has enough money to send their first satellite into space.

  8. WTO – World Trade Organization -

  9. AFF – American Forest Foundation

  10. ATFS – American Tree Farm System –  1941 – Forest Certification Program – pushing tree land owners to get a land Management Plan – basically have a government official go over with you what you are going to do with your land and get your land ‘certified’ as sustainable – Certification needs to be renewed every 5 years – cost goes to land owner.  Currently certification is voluntary, but more and more Timber companies are looking for it and ‘might’ pass up doing business with you and your trees without it.   The lumber industry is moving towards if your ‘trees’ land is not certified by ATFS or Federal Program you will not be able to sell your lumber.  There are 8 ATFS Standards to get certification (AFF’s board of trustees adopted these the industry standards in 2009).  1.  Commitment to Practicing Sustainable Forestry 2. Compliance with Laws 3. Reforestation and Afforestation – must restock with trees that are desired species in your forest owner’s management agreement/manual. 4.  Air, Water, and Soil Protection,  5.  Fish, Wildlife, and Biodiversity – must contribute to the conservation of biodiversity 6.  Forest Aesthetics – must follow guidelines for visual quality 7.  Protect Special Sites – must keep historical, archeological, cultural, geological, biological or ecological characteristics – must protect any endangered species found on your land.  8.  Forest Product Harvest and Other Activities – use ONLY qualified natural resource professionals and qualified contractors (AFF will determine who is qualified).   – All of these 8 standards must be met to be certified and at the OWNER’s expense!!!  BTW: If endangered species found – you must do all means decided by ATFS/AFF to protect species which most likely includes not being able to harvest and sell your lumber.   Believe it or not but many land owners sign up for this!!!   Where is the choice to do what you want with your own land – by the way none of this can be accomplished without a full inventory of your property from each tree to tree to junk laying around to any buildings/equipment you have.
