UN Agenda 2030 Exposed

The United Nations (UN) is an intergovernmental organization that was set up by the winners of World War II – the War After The War To End All Wars – to maintain global peace and security, foster friendly relations among nations, achieve international cooperation, and coordinate harmonic interactions between nations. The UN’s primary goal was to prevent future wars.

Since its debut and despite its founders’ best intentions, the UN has become nothing short of a dictatorial body of New World Order totalitarian globalists. This elite consortium wants to micro-manage every human’s daily affairs and has enacted international pacts to get their way.


For decades, the UN has been pushing a concept they continue to promote which they call “sustainable development.” It is the driving force behind everything else on Agenda 21 which, for the first time in international politics:

“recognized each nation’s right to pursue social and economic progress and assigned to States the responsibility of adopting a model of sustainable development.”

Agenda 21 was signed and supported by more than 178 governments at the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from June 3-14, 1992. The “21” in Agenda 21 refers to the 21st century.

Critics regard Agenda 21 as the action plan implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, all education, all information, and all human beings in the world.

UN Agenda 21:

  • Calls for governments to take control of all land use and not leave any of the decision making in the hands of private property owners
  • Assumes that people are not good stewards of their land and the government will do a better job if they are in control
  • Individual rights, in general, are to give way to the needs of communities as determined by the governing body
  • People should be rounded up off the land and packed into human settlements, or islands of human habitation, close to employment centers and transportation

A related program, the Wildlands Project, details how most of the land is to be set aside for non-humans. In 2018, the Department of the Interior sold a total of 28 onshore oil and gas leases at auction, producing an all-time revenue high of $1.1 billion.

On December 11, 2018, the Bureau of Land Management (BML) announced a lease sale for more than 150,000 acres of public lands for fossil-fuel extraction (fracking) within 10 miles of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks remote western desert preserves.

Before Agenda 21 came the United Nations Millennium Declaration, “signed in September 2000 commits world leaders to combat poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, environmental degradation, and discrimination against women. The MDGs are derived from this Declaration, and all have specific targets and indicators.”

The notion underlying sustainable development is that humankind is already damned by and guilty of irrecoverable socioeconomic and climate conditions – which is itself debatable – and that there are too many people living on earth for the resources available to them in their specific localities.

Therefore, according to this thinking, large populations of impoverished, third-world citizens must be moved to first- and second-world countries to equal opportunity for everyone. This will solve global poverty, say the UN pundits.

In fact, the recent migrant influx into European Union countries has paid off in rising crime and an unwillingness to integrate into the host community and culture. Yet, the UN sustainability goals are still the driving force behind much international policy-making.

The UN trotted out its latest Agenda 2030, also known as the Sustainable Development Goals. for approval during the UN Sustainable Development Summit in 2015. Agenda 2030 is a continuation and further refinement of the eight “Millennium Development Goals,” (MDGs) adopted in 2000, as well as the goals specified in Agenda 21, approved in 2012 with its outcome document called “The Future We Want.”

Since January 1, 2016, the 17 “Sustainable Development Goals Post-2015” (SDGs) of UN Agenda 2030 have been in force. These goals cover seven broad categories that govern pretty much everyone and everything on earth:

  1. Water and sanitation
  2. Water resources
  3. Transboundary integrated management (river borders)
  4. Energy
  5. Climate change
  6. Sustainable consumption and production – lifestyles
  7. Deforestation

Tom DeWeese, president of the American Policy Center, called Agenda 21 “a new kind of tyranny that, if not stopped, will surely lead us to a new Dark Ages of pain and misery yet unknown to mankind.”

Many critics believe that Agenda 2030 is leading the world toward a New World Order with a One World Government hell-bent on steam-rolling individual nations’ rights for the “common good” and “sustainability.”

Furthermore, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals may be “actively dangerous” and “a missed opportunity” because they “lock the global development agenda around a failing economic model.”

Harsher opponents charge that the UN’s far-reaching global sustainability goals are “nothing more than code words for a corporate-government fascist agenda that will imprison humanity in a devastating cycle of poverty while enriching the world’s most powerful globalist corporations like Monsanto and DuPont.”

Given the UN’s poor track record on human rights and new evidence that global warmists are alarmists rather than realists, is the world wise to entrust our collective ability to sustain ourselves in the lifestyles we choose to an organization as allegedly corrupt and incompetent as the United Nations?

    When the second amendment was composed it took experienced riflemen a couple of minutes to reload their guns. The second amendment allows one to serve in the army and to have an antique gun like those available in George Washington’s time!No individual should be allowed to own modern rapid fire weapons.Also it would be well if our children were not exposed to such nonsense as the second amendment of our antiquated constitution!

    I’ve said all along that the United Nations is run by Nations that actually hate the United States and only ” Pretend ” to like us just to get our Foreign Aid Dollars. If it wasn’t for those American Tax Payers dollars they would have all blown us all to Hell long ago. The united Nation only exists to get rid of these United States. Once they all get their Militaries Built Up with our Foreign Aid , look out , they will all try to take over what we have left. President Trump should insist they get the Hell out of these United States by moving to another Country , Possibly , to a Southeast Asian Country , since all that ever seems to be the United Nations Boss , is , from Southeast Asia. Once they are gone , IF EVER , destroy the building, with Demolitions , Large Caterpillar’s, or just burn the damn thing , but just get rid of all those Bugs, Electronic , OR , Otherwise.

        I have been complaining about agenda 21 and 30 for several years. Basicically this is an agenda to get world nations to buy into a global one goverement system controlled by the United Nations. That means that individual national soverignity is given up as well as the individual citizens soverignty. The world order controls all lands and manages all natural resources under a one glodal global government. All businesses are controlled by the global government and where you live work food sources and medical care. We would be under total control, managed like livestock.

        This is what these globalist want to enact. I can imagine that on such a scale those in power currently would continue in power with locals having no choice in the matter. Oh and for certain there would be no 1st or 2nd amendments, most likely the old constitution would no longer exist. Officials currently in power and not in compliance with this new world order would be replaced with some choosen puppets that would follow in lock step.

        This is the sort of government that would most likely exist. The sort of governmennt Obama was trying to bring about in America, the kind of government Hillary would continue. You see how close we have been to loosing our country and our heritage. This is still possible if Trump is not elected and even more quickly if socialist democrats gain control. We have already been exposed to socialist democrats policy and extremes they will go to too win. I like our being different, having our own soverignty, our laws, our constitution, amendments and a say so in how we want to be governed.

        There are some I’m sure think this one world globalist society is great, but I can assure you what is trying to be sold to use will look nothing we are promised, like Obamacare, like your insurance tou keep your insurance, like your doctor keep your doctor and costs will go way down. Lies, all lies from the beginning.

        I will not buy into giving up my heritage, my soverignty, my rights as a human being, my freedom or my liberty. I will fight and resist until my dying breath. Life on my knees is not life it’s slavery and I want no part of it.

    I first learned about Agenda 21 when I was working for a large transportation agency that had ties to similar agencies in the NW part of the state. When I first read the “agenda” as it was presented, I was suspicious from the very beginning. It was a “Top Down” approach, not only to control public transportation, but to discourage private passenger vehicle transportation. From being able to drive my car to work, then do shopping, etc. afterward, I was relegated to being a passenger in a passenger van because a regular bus did not go close to my subdivision. With 8-10 bodies shoved into a van, with numerous perfumes vying for ascendency, I was sick by the time I was dropped off. It got only worse when I begged the ladies to wait until they got to work to put on their perfume, because they couldn’t believe I had a serious problem and thought they’d show me. Then, the smells of all the buses starting up in the morning was filtering into our brand new building, but since it didn’t bother anyone else, they allowed it to continue so that the neighbors wouldn’t complain. During the following months the edicts of Agenda 21 was part of our companies purview to nominate wetlands (those poor folks who were on low-lying land in the “Low Country” would have to give up portions of their land, etc. It was getting so bad that between the egregious over-reach of Agenda 21, the lack of common sense in that Democratic-steeped state, my health and well-being, I finally accepted disability for the final 2 years of my employment. I’ve never recovered fully, but I did more studies on Agenda 21 and absolutely know and believe that it is the United Nation’s attempt to take over the world’s economy, enterprise, just like angry step-parents who don’t even deserve the children they think they have to mould in a pattern pleasing to them. That’s not freedom…it’s tyranny!

    I cannot help but recall the beginnings of the UN after WW2, and what has become of it since then.
    For citizens of the United States, we at least are acquainted with the U.N.’s posh location in New York.
    Was it really the preconceived intention of the then “powers to be” that the UN was to permanently be located in the United States? In any event it has been here in the USA since its founding. In whose interests is that? Is it a world organization, or a collection of nations meeting in the USA, a major UN contributor, out of the many nations,some major ones which do not contribute financially to the UN operations, or continually must be asked to pay their dues while a chosen few, including the USA (naturally!)foot the bill for UN to operate! Consider the fact that there are so many Islamic nations as UN members,plus their client nations, which vote as an impenetrable voting bloc. They are not democracies.
    Still, the USA pays its much share despite the blocs of nations that have formed against USA plus a few democracies.If the UN was not located in the USA, think about how long that UN would be together, and if the nations of the UN fail to contribute, or contribute short of necessary, how long would such a UN exist if it hadn’t the U.S. location, nor the U.S. contribution to UN operations?

      According to some amazingly connected and knowledgeable sources (and decades of study) and the fact that the total debt for the US Govt.(the National Debt and the unfunded liabilities) is now equal to more than half the debt for all the nations of the rest of the world – it’s over $147.7 Trillion AND increasing by 18.3 BILLION per 24 hour day (I’ve clocked it to the minute) well, I think we have no more then four or five years at the outside although others want to bring about a stock market crash ASAP and hope to do it this year or next. How this will work with those in the UN who want to reduce our stature and erode and eventually eliminate the Constitution I do not know. There are those in Government and in some big business, mostly DEMS but not limited to them, who want to get rid of President Trump because they believe they have a superior ability to control things, run things, and he cannot be persuaded to do things that make no sense. Some call it the DEEP STATE, others believe they are Marxists, Socialists, Nazi’s or Communists but they are all anti-American and need chaos that will lead to a police state. If they can create a stock market crash before election day they win. All they need is for the FED to raise rates rather than lower them and Viola. Since we have abandoned God – not all – but to many, I do not see how this can be avoided. They want it to crash so they can take over for an entire generation. There are already discussions of confiscation of monies, stocks, 401-K’s and IRA’s, monthly taxes on savings, and more. Among the few millions who have moved OUT of the USA in the last 12 years are undoubtedly thousands who have done so because of their belief that our excessive debt cannot be contained and that something like a Greater Depression is an inevitability. I believe that the whole world will be affected. My only suggestion is that those who still believe in God pray about every move they make. Sorry, but without a miracle we do NOT have ten years!

    UN staff are the highest PAID civil servants in the world. How much of their salary is paid by American taxpayers I don’t know. The land was given to it by the Rockefeller folks. I’m sure they got a big tax writeoff for that. The UN is a valuable tool to do many things. However the American govt. can no longer keep paying most of its bills. The members don’t often support American policies or ideals.

    The United States REJECTED Agenda 21 Almost 30 Years Ago.

    Conspiracy promoter, Deborah Tavares of Sebastopol, California falsely claims that Agenda 21 is a U.N scheme which will drive us out of our rural and suburban homes and into tightly-packed, over-populated “Kill Cities” in furtherance of the planned extinction of mankind. But, none of this is so.

    Agenda 21 is a non-binding suggestion that the United Nations made to all its member nations in 1992. Under the United States Constitution, both the President and the Senate must agree to a proposed treaty or convention before it becomes law in the United States. While the President symbolically signed Agenda 21, the Senate withheld its consent to Agenda 21.

    As a result, the United Sates government rejected Agenda 21 almost 30 years ago. That means Agenda 21 never even applied in the United States. So, whatever Agenda 21 “would have done” in the United States is completely irrelevant. The so-called “Agenda 21 Map” is entirely fake and had nothing to do with Agenda 21 in the first place. Instead, the fake “Agenda 21 Map” was an exaggeration created to artificially generate U.S. opposition to “The U.N. Treaty On Bio-Diversity” (something entirely different from Agenda 21). As it turned out, the United States also rejected The U.N. Treaty On Bio-Diversity. So, neither Agenda 21 nor The U.N. Treaty On Bio-Diversity (which the fake Agenda 21 Map actually illustrated) ever applied in the United States.

    Deborah Tavares has always known the truth about Agenda 21 and the Agenda 21 Map. But, the truth about Agenda 21 does not incite the fear, hatred and violence that Deborah Tavares seeks to incite in the American people. So, she concocted the Agenda 21 hoax in order to incite the fear, hatred and violence that she seeks to incite in the American people..
