Agenda 21 is the United Nations’ initiative to control the world’s resources under the pretext of environmental protection. Employing counterfeit science, it declares that a planetary catastrophe
resulting from human activity is well underway and that it can only be arrested by the surrender of material comforts, reduced energy consumption and a transfer of wealth. Agenda 21 has proliferated countless unelected bodies worldwide that dictate so-called environmental policy to governments, locally, nationally and internationally. With patient, incremental steps, often advancing beneath the radar of public awareness, Agenda 21 is the gradual implementation of global government, often referred to by its advocates as “The New World Order.” It seeks to dissolve the nation state, eliminate private property, and curtail individual freedom. Ultimately it envisions absolute control over every aspect of our lives.


Michael Shaw is a licensed attorney and CPA. He built a career in the development and operation of a multi-state self storage company. Today he is an abundance ecologist and the creator of Liberty Garden, a 75 acre coastal native plant oasis on the coast of Santa Cruz County. Michael’s primary focus is centered on guiding Freedom Advocates, a
tax exempt organization, that works to deliver the message that in America, government was designed to protect individual rights. This is in stark contrast to the globalist doctrine behind Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development (now adopted by the current U.S. Administration). Michael and his expanding team at Freedom Advocates explain how this agenda infiltrates our lives at the local level, and what we can do to stop it..

Colonel Samuel Kastel served with distinction with the Israel Defense Forces, participating in the 1982 Lebanon War and 2006 Lebanon War as well as in many aspects of Israeli intelligence. Today his work focuses on the attempts of NGOs and multilateral organizations to delegitimize the State of Israel, developing a particular expertise with regard to the threats emanating from the United Nations and multilateral
organizations. He is in the preliminary stage of investigating Agenda 21. He has already discovered that it is having a strategic impact on Israel from top down policies within the government and from hostile NGOs outside the government. He will share his recent findings.

Freedom Fueled the American Moon Shot

Freedom Fueled the American Moon Shot

By Larry Greenfield

50 years ago this Wednesday, on May 25th, 1961, President John F. Kennedy committed the United States to win the space race, thus fulfilling one of humanity’s dearest dreams:
I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.
Conceived half a century ago, during the Eisenhower Administration, and conducted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Apollo program responded to the surprise Soviet Sputnik 1 orbital satellite.
America’s scientific ambitions, human achievements, and exploratory adventures have been unparalleled ever since.
Noteworthy, Kennedy’s moonshot was announced during a speech to Congress that included his articulation of the Freedom Doctrine.
Our strength as well as our convictions have imposed upon this nation the role of leader in freedom’s cause.
No role in history could be more difficult or more important. We stand for freedom.
That is our conviction for ourselves–that is our only commitment to others. No friend, no neutral and no adversary should think otherwise.
We are not against any man — or any nation–or any system — except as it is hostile to freedom.
Nor am I here to present a new military doctrine, bearing any one name or aimed at any one area. I am here to promote the freedom doctrine.
President Kennedy’s speech is remembered for his Cold War challenge to catch up to and pass the Soviet military space threat.
But the speech was also a remarkable call to affirm the ever-renewing American revolutionary campaign for independence, security, prosperity, and liberty.
Today, 50 years after President Kennedy’s urging, President Obama has deeply disappointed many Americans, including the first man to land on the moon, Neil Armstrong, with weak Presidential support for lunar exploration and continued human spaceflight.
Noting the decision to cancel the Ares 1 launch vehicle and the Constellation moon landing program, Armstrong and Apollo veterans Jim Lovell and Gene Cernan wrote publicly:
For The United States, the leading space faring nation for nearly half a century, to be without carriage to low Earth orbit and with no human exploration capability to go beyond Earth orbit for an indeterminate time into the future, destines our nation to become one of second or even third rate stature.
Somehow, Mr. Obama still dares to call this time our Sputnik moment, our challenge to “win the future” against economic competitors in the fields of bio-science, clean energy technology, and computer engineering.
But what is this decade’s big vision for achievement, advancement and ambition?
Imperative must be national projects such as energy independence, border security, counter-terrorism, and innovative re-industrialization to compete against China, India, Brazil, and other emerging economies.
American leadership will also develop medical treatments and cures in cardiology and cancer and countless diseases.  We shall partner as well for global food, water, and environmental sustainability by incentivizing governments towards internal decency, and international trade and security.  
But, perhaps the most important mission of our time is within the American civic mind.  We must nurture a return to the American founding principle of individual liberty itself, so severely threatened by the growth over the past 50 years of big government and its entitled constituencies, who would be unrecognizable to the patriots who declared independence and pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor.
Two American Presidents of the past half century, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, repeatedly insisted that the American future was bright and positive, calling forth a new frontier and remaining always a shining city on a hill.
This spirit was captured when brave Astronaut Armstrong took his first step on the moon on July 20, 1969, declaring:
That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
The seven words on the plaque that remains on the surface of the Moon, in the Sea of Tranquility, where America’s noblest hopes and aspirations landed, are:
We came in peace for all mankind.
Inspired by liberty, Americans have always been dreamers, discoverers, and doers.
President Kennedy boldly promoted our national lunar space program, and called for us to chase the stars and touch the face of the moon, the romantic symbol throughout history of possibilities outside our normal reach.
The Apollo freedom flight reached its target and returned, inviting us to dream American dreams again and again.
Wherever we go next, we go forward in freedom, the essential American spirit and still the American way.

5th AFA International Conference of the Air: China Ascendant: Is the U.S. Losing it’s Status?

May 23, 2011

Yesterday, American Freedom Alliance Senior Fellows Avi Davis (author of this blog) and Larry Greenfield co-hosted the American Freedom Alliance’s 5th International Conference of the Air. The conference included Gordon Chang, David P. Goldman, Ross Terill, and Professor June Teufel Dreyer, and looked at the rise of China and what that could mean for the U.S. If you missed it, you can listen to it at any time at Western Word Radio, where it (and all other Western Word Radio shows) are archived for your convenience.

AFA’s Conference of the Air series bring together academics and experts on topics relevant to the preservation of Western civilization. They are conducted via conference call and broadcasted live (and then archived) at Western Word Radio so that you can listen to them on your computer, no matter where you are in the world.
