Just in case you were sleeping…
Here’s a little WTFU reveille courtesy of Little Red Pill. While the media occupied itself with reviews of the papal visit, the Planned Parenthood scandal, Obama vowing to stand strong against ISIS (abruptly followed by Russian airstrikes in Syria), Congress shutting down the government (they caved), the 2016 election and all manner of media circus fluff, guess what happened on September 30th?
That Wednesday morning, US Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch took to the podium of the United Nations General Assembly and announced a new global initiative.
Meanwhile, Under the Radar, a New Global Initiative Announced
“The Strong Cities Network will serve as a vital tool to strengthen capacity-building and improve collaboration,” said Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch. “As we continue to counter a range of domestic and global terror threats, this innovative platform will enable cities to learn from one another, to develop best practices and to build social cohesion and community resilience here at home and around the world.”
The Strong Cities Network (SCN) will empower municipal bodies to fill this gap while working with civil society and safeguarding the rights of local citizens and communities.
The SCN will strengthen strategic planning and practices to address violent extremism in all its forms by fostering collaboration among cities, municipalities and other sub-national authorities.” (Sept. 30th, 2015 US Department of Justice).
NYC, Atlanta, Minneapolis, and Denver are joining in with London, Paris, Dakar, Beirut, Rotterdam, Copenhagen, Mombasa, Tunis, and a few others.
So what’s the big deal?
Government is just a short way of saying, ‘All of us working together’.
The bigger the better. Right?
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio took to the podium as well and touted the program as a way to deal with extremism in “a new and powerful way.”
Of course, the pogrom, sorry program, will not pick on any particular population. “We will be vigilant against all forms of violent extremism, whether it’s based in religious, or racial, or nationalistic or ideological intolerance,” he said.
As mentioned in an earlier LRP piece, the Obama/Progressive regime cannot come to terms with deploying the adjective “Islamic” to modify “extremism”. No, it’s equal opportunity, especially for what has already been identified as extremism.
Are you on this list?
So, how does the current US government define extremism? Well, you might be surprised how wide a net they already cast. An article by Michael Snyder (curated by Zero Hedge’s Tyler Durden) presents a list of 72 potential extremists types, each type is linked to government documentation. Chances are you are on this list… maybe even more than once.
Here’s just a sampling:
1. Those that talk about “individual liberties”
2. Those that advocate for states’ rights
3. Those that want “to make the world a better place”
4. “The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule”
5. Those that are interested in “defeating the Communists”
6. Those that believe “that the interests of one’s own nation are separate from the interests of other nations or the common interest of all nations”
7. Anyone that holds a “political ideology that considers the state to be unnecessary, harmful,or undesirable”
8. Anyone that possesses an “intolerance toward other religions”
9. Those that “take action to fight against the exploitation of the environment and/or animals”
13. “The Patriot Movement”
OK. Are we beginning to conceive the Matrix here? As Texas Congressman Ron Paul opined at length (paraphrased):
US Cities Governed by UN?
US Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch has effectively announced a way to take it global and unite selected cities with other police states. It internationalizes police authority, brings Sharia compliant law into our American Cities, and “[it will] forge partnerships in order to build local cohesion and resilience on a global scale”. And here, we were so concerned about losing our national sovereignty. Look what’s happening to our cities.
The UN Matrix
The website for this new item on the global world order menu affirms, “The Strong Cities Network is the first global network of cities and other sub-national entities working together to build social cohesion and resilience to prevent violent extremism in all its forms.”
There’s that terminology– “social cohesion” and “resilience”. Hmmmm…. harkens back to the verbiage of the UN’s Agenda 21–sustainability, resilient cities, comprehensive planning, and protection. Think Globally–Act Locally was the popularized meme, (I used to have that bumper sticker).
The MO of this new global initiative fits hand in glove with the deployment of many local initiatives spawned by the UN’s Agenda 21 under the ICLEI model– The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. While ICLEI is tasked with conscribing local communities to stave off the (supposed) dire effects of climate change, the SCN program looks to take on the social challenges of “extremism”.
The new global initiative fits hand in glove with the UN’s Agenda 21 affecting US cities.
The SCN motto might be rephrased as Act Locally, Rule Globally.
With a pro-Sharia Law, anti-US membership populating the majority of the UN-an organization obsessed with expanding its influence-we must tell our US representatives and our city officials to push back on this program as we would (normally) against any other invasive force. Remember, neither the Congress nor the public in general had any say about the SCN, or its implementation. But thanks to the “we know better” Obama regime, the initiative is already up and running with a global conference scheduled to meet in Paris this coming spring.
New York, Atlanta, Denver, Minneapolis, and any Johnny-come-latelies, look for the distinctive blue helmets coming to your neighborhoods to help you be more “socially cohesive” and “resilient” and do away with those pesky extremists–in “all forms”.
By the way, while American freedom is usurped by the powers that be, no one noticed. Well almost. The Thinkers at American Thinker have it going on.
