US to withdraw from UNESCO
« on: October 12, 2017, 05:01:24 pm »

Great.  Let's hope this is a "sign of things to come" and eventually the US will get out of the UN altogether, and withdraw all financial support along with it, then as the UN can no loner fund its evil, it will soon collapse and no longer be a problem for the world.

The United States plans to withdraw from UNESCO, citing financial reasons, as well as what it said was an anti-Israel bias at the UN's educational, cultural and science organisation.
The decision to withdraw from UNESCO, which the United States helped found, was announced on Thursday morning (Friday NZ Time) by the State Department, which said the United States would remain involved as a nonmember observer. It will take effect at the end of 2018.

Don't hold your breath. If it was really important to Trump, it would happen immediately. Just more political games.

I like your thinking. Here iis a brief vid of my last visit to Glacier park in Montana, where I noticed that UNESCO is claiming management rights over the park. We have to get out of the UN immediately. We never should have been a member in the first place.

I know that everyone here already knows that UNESCO is mucking about with our "national" parks, but I wanted my own pictures of the bronze plaque at Glacier.

Thanks for the great link. That's good info for my files here.

How ironic, that the Statue of Liberty is now a UNESCO protected site. Sheesh!

OK so the UN can CLAIM those places for itself, BUT words on a plaque don't actually mean anything.  The UN cannot send troops to physically take these places away.  What are they gonna do?  Use a giant digger to take the land away, leaving a big chasm, and then reassemble it somewhere else piece by piece as best they can?  Then have it under 24/7 armed guard allowing only fee-paying minorities (absolutely no children.  Don't be fooled by the acronym.  To let children into such a dangerous place would violate the "UNROC" treaty)?

By the same token I could also make a plaque claiming my ownership of one of your parks and send it to the town council of that place, but somehow I don't think they'd do anything more than laugh.

It is weird that UNESCO would try to claim it, and presumably the US government would agree, though.

They all work for the same people, and it isn't US.

It's one of the old Fabian socialist methodologies. Take an inch, give back a half-inch; then take another inch, give back a half-inch.
Inch by inch they end up taking your front yard without a direct confrontation. At least that is their plan. 
How that plan applies here is that the idiots at the UN are getting advertisements on plaques on U.S. soil, which implants a subliminal message in the minds of millions of tourists that it's okay for the UN to be managing "our" parks. That's part of it, and that part of it is a psy-op, plain and simple.

But there is a more hideous problem.  According to Montana State Senator Jennifer Fielder, Montana fire fighters have a sterling reputation for containing new fires to about ten acres or less.  Montana fire fighters are quick and efficient, and have a wonderful record for controlling fires here.  But -- the damned-by-God US Forest Service, the BLM, the EPA, and, now, the United Nations, have other methods for fighting fires. The sombitches literally tie the hands of Montana fire fighters behind their backs with bureaucratic red tape and government hoops to jump through for "proper proceedures", so that our fires in forests here get wildly out of control before any firefighting actually gets underway. If a fire is on Forest Service land, Montana fire fighters are held back by federal orders until the feds can plan out a sophisticated way to fight the fire. By the time they do that, the fire is out of control.

A perfect example of federal and United Nations fire control is this sad fact -- ONE THIRD of GLACIER burned this fire season. One third of the whole damn park! Why? Oh, because it's a Natural Occurrence, of course. This is how "central planning" and centralized official execution at the international level (UN) and federal level (USFS and BLM etc.) works.  Montana has enough problems without the damned federal government coming in here telling us how to handle our lands, and we sure don't need some idiot international government trying to tell us how to tend to our lands.  It's actually a real and a serious problem here.

And it goes far deeper than forest fires...

When I first moved here, there was a depression on the back 40 that filled with a few inches of water when it rains. I about broke my back hauling gravel and dirt to fill it in. Took care that nobody saw me doing that... best I could. It now looks like everywhere else up there, instead of a mini "wetland" to a bureaucrat. The toad and salamander that lived there moved to my garden... and I didn't even help them.

A simple search will find many thousands of intrusions by these foul monsters on individual land owners across the country. And it's nothing new.

ML,
You're right about that too. Wait until you hear about what the Indian tribal governments are doine with the middle-east countries -- in our country. I've recently interviewed the woman who wrote the book, "Going To Pieces", which I read and which taught me a lot about how federal energy works, such as dams for instance, and power plants etc., are almost all located on or near tribal reservations, which the federal government relates to with a two-faced stance, saying "the Tribal governments are autonomous sovereign governments and we cannot control them -- on the one hand -- but on the other hand the BIA and other federal agencies do indeed control them. But feds control only certain parts of Tribal governments, and on the reservations the poor people are being screwed to high heaven by their own tribal governments. That's one thing, but the other thing is that now the Tribal governments are doing foreign exchanges with Saudi Arabia, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, and, I think, Iran -- they are inviting those middle-east countries to invest in new businesses on tribal lands, which is putting the middle east countries in near proximity to our power grid centers. And it gets even worse than that, but I'll stop with that much, as it's too much to put into a post. Just know that Zinke, now head of the Interior, has just moved slyly to assist in yet more middle-east businesses to launch on or near reservations.  And finally, I went down to Missoula for the sentencing of Joe Robertson, an old 'Nam veteran who dug some ponds -- with County permits -- on his land and then got busted by the EPA and had to spend time in prison for digging ponds for which he had paid permit fees. 
It's like you said, the problem is very multi-faceted and any rancher, farmer, logger, miner, or just plain ol' country folk are being squeezed off the land like they did in Clark County, Nevada, where more than fifty ranchers were put out of business leaving only Cliven Bundy as the last operational ranch in that County.
But as that old '60s song put it, "You keep adding to my number as you shoot my people down". Some time soon I think we're going to see a tipping point where people just won't take it any more. Something like "Claire Time", eh? ;)

Salute!

We can hope. But I think of the way the Chinese people live and just shake my head. They've been living that way for many centuries, and their "leaders" keep digging the hole deeper... but the people have never turned toward liberty. I don't know... I'm not going to live a lot longer in any case, but I'd sure love to be part of that "tipping."

Which reminds me... I have not taken that old SKS out to the range in ages. Need to burn a little of that ammo and make sure it still works. :)
