Imperial Rule By Benevolent Council

By Niki F. Raapana
June 4, 2002

For 215 years, a free people governed our country. We voted for elected
representatives serving limited terms who were allowed to create new laws
only by a two-thirds majority vote. U.S. citizens could challenge bad laws
and lawmakers via elections, congressional oversight, through people's
initiatives, and appeals to Constitutional courts.

Since 1993, the citizens of the United States have been living under a new
authority. Now we are all governed by appointed, un-elected government
councils. New official "committees" have replaced our elected

These benevolent councils create powerful laws and policies that supersede
our protections guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.  The new council's
mandates are to balance all our national laws against the new global
sustainability agenda.

This list is a very small, sample hierarchy of Big Mother's Imperial
Councils. Membership in the any of the following multi-stakeholder councils
is by appointment only.

The Earth Council, 1992
The World Trade Organization, WTO
National Councils on Sustainable Development
World Business Council for Sustainable Development
United Nations Security Council, 1992

SECOND TIER-U.S. National:
President's Council on Sustainable Development, PCSD, 1993 United States
Department of Agriculture, USDA Council on
Sustainable Development, 1996
President Bush's Citizen's Corps Councils, 2002
President Bush's Council on Bio-Ethics, 2002

BOTTOM RUNG- My Local Community:
Washington State Geographic Information Council, 1998
Seattle Privacy Council, 2001
Seattle Community Policing Action Council, 2002
Roosevelt Neighborhood Association, 1997
Seattle Neighborhood Action Teams, NATS, 1996
Seattle NATS' Rooming & Boarding House Committee, 1997

Every rural and urban community in the United States can fill in the bottom
rung of Big Mother's hierarchy with their local councils and committees. To
find out who your new governing councils are, ask your local government for
a copy of your sustainable growth management/action plan. The planning
committee members are also likely to be identified stakeholders who also
serve on the neighborhood council.

Some local plans are actually called Local Agenda 21 Plans, but more savvy
areas don't advertise their association with the global government quite as
freely.  But you'll find your local planners got advice from a nationally
affiliated organization created to promote sustainability, and all the new
councils base their "decisions" on scientists who claim to have "expertise"
in theoretical sustainability issues.

All new world government councils base their existence on "sustainable
development." If your local council claims to be a diverse group of
visionary stakeholders with an urgent need to help "develop bold, new
approaches to integrate economic, environmental, and *equity issues," then
you too, (like me), bow down before the legal power of Big Mother.

Our American form of government, and the foundation for our freedom, is
based upon our power to change and affect the laws that govern us.  If we
cannot successfully challenge and overturn a law by a majority of our
people, or in one of our courts, then we do not live under the protection of
the Constitution of the United States anymore.

It's that simple.

Their mission statements represent themselves as agents of an Imperial
socialist system of law. Sustainable Councils override U.S. statutes by
creating a more equal worldwide system that manages the distribution of
wealth and jobs.

In 1993, President Clinton responded to the United Nations mandate to
promote the sustainability agenda worldwide. The President's Council on
Sustainable Development (PCSD) cited the decision by United Nations
Conference on Environment and Development at Rio de Janeiro, in 1992, for
the U.S.'s urgent need to make plans to promote "sustainability."

The PCSD, and every one of its federal agency sub-councils, cited the U.N.'s
1987 "Bruntland Report" as the primary  purpose for their existence.

The Bruntland Report's definition of "sustainability" is: "Development that
meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future
generations to meet their own needs."  The term "needs" is taken directly
from the socialist platform: ". each according to his needs."

The PCSD's report in 1996 was titled, "Sustainable America-A New Consensus
for Prosperity, Opportunity, and a Healthy Environment for the Future."  The
term "consensus" is used to define a socialist's concept of "democracy,"
where a few selected appointees all have to agree on every new action.

The Constitution no longer governs the people of the United States. Our flag
no longer represents liberty and justice. And, if I were smart, I'd accept
the reality of the new world government and go after my piece of the funding

The new councils all just happen to also be in charge of the disbursal of
the vast funding for the new programs.  If I could get myself appointed to
one, I'd be a rich woman.

Especially with a Homeland Security Budget of 1.6 billion that includes
"rebuilding communities". Why can't I be on the COPS side, get appointed to
a Citizen Council, and pass out grants to all my friends too.  What's wrong
with me?

Why, in God's name, can't I bring myself to say:

I pledge submission, to the authority, of the United Nations of the World,
and to the Empire, for which it governs, one global nation, under Big
Mother, with sustainability and livability for all.
