Whistleblower Reveals That A UN-Planned Invasion By Refugees Into The US Is Already Underway

US: A Missouri woman is interviewed by radio-show host, Josh Tolley, and tells how she became involved in her state’s refugee-immigration program and how the program is far more extensive and advanced than most people realize. She describes how the UN, under the heading of Agenda 2030, is planning immigration into the US similar to what is happening in Europe. The goal is to create chaos and lay the foundation for breaking the US into smaller political units with equal UN representation – and the end of America as a sovereign nation. -GEG

Radio show host Josh Tolley interviewed an unidentified American woman from Missouri who learned about her state’s refugee immigration program by attending UN-sponsored meetings and participating in the programs.  She said that refugees are brought into the US in alliance with the UN Refugee Resettlement Organization Offices of Refugee Monitoring out of Washington, DC.  In her state, Missouri Social Services administers the refugee programs that provide welfare for housing, food stamps, and medicare, in addition to cash and jobs.

The refugees receive US passports and Social Security numbers so they can receive Social Security benefits.  They are screened and, where possible, encouraged to apply for lifetime disability benefits under Social Security.

Many refugees are allowed into the US who have communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, leprosy, and smallpox. More

INDOCTRINATION CENTER AHEAD

There was a time when the general population was concerned about their individual freedom, constitutional issues, justice and unalienable rights (i.e. God given rights.) Yes, there are millions of us that remain in America who still desire this. However, there are numerous others that have been led down a worldly ivy covered path by sleazy educators, administrators, facilitators, BAR attorney’s, and basically traitors who have embraced an ideology of Marxism which is a system meant to change the economics of a society while also remaking the culture which will then produce a government from the top down instead of from the bottom up.

Following this model a bit farther and then watching its development, a child today experiences a top down system which begins in school and the classroom. Children learn very quickly how to submit to a system of staunch rules and then will bring that entire package with them into adulthood. That’s the plan.

It is the Marxist state of conformity which is the end game while freedom to deviate from the pack is discouraged. Creativeness and individuality is replaced by collective thought to where the ability to think freely is lost. Thus comes the danger and the loss of critical thinking which is accompanied by force-able indoctrination while inducing someone to give up basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes thereby accepting contrasting regimented ideas through persuasion by propaganda and mainstream media news that favors a specific top down goal.

This agenda is masked within the realm of the “intelligentsia” that ushers in their own set of beliefs while also forming a politically correct standard which furthers the tyrannical foundational order of Marxism. The Communist Manifesto published in London by Karl Marx in 1848 emphasizes some of these main points.

  • Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of and to public purpose.
  • A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
  • Abolition of all rights of inheritance
  • Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
  • Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a
    national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
  • Centralization of the means of communication and transportation
    in the hands of the state.
  • Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by
    the state.
  • Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries
  • Free education for all children in government schools.
  • Combination of education with industrial production.


    See…”The Communist Manifesto”

What is missing in the above points? It is my own newest addition to the list which is called the “Environmentalist Order”, yet soon to be dismantled by President Trump & Company.

Yes, we are looking forward to the funeral.

A TALE OF A SMART CITY: RE-ENGINEERING YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

3 Comments

__________________________________________________

On Thursday, August 27, the Nevada County, CA., Planning Kingdom played host to a packed house of a very concerned crowd who’s 95% majority explained why they were not at all interested in a state mandated stack n’ pack, high density housing element with no discretionary action attached.  With the exception of one of four persons on the panel, the Planning Commission, who is appointed by the county, took on their usual stance of filescacoaali“formality” while reluctantly listening to a truck load of persons who voiced their total dissatisfaction with a not so smart city agenda that, in theory, was previously cut in stone
and decided before hand.  And yes, the Planning Commission, despite a train load of objections, voted three out of four to go forward with a yes vote and rubber stamp the housing blanket proposal, sending it to the supervisors for the next vote.    

What was the main beef of the people?  It was a 699 unit “housing element” fiasco with no “human element” considered except that the people would be “close to stores, fire protection, a hospital and services.” 

Welcome to “Detroit” and another mega meltdown loaded with the usual turmoil, drugs and crime. 

And when the question came addressing who might be living in these high density arrangements, in the end, planning had no answer.  This calls for a further investigation and here is something that just might stir up your senses.     

The federal government and the White House has a “diversification blueprint” for affirmative and alternative living.  The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is ready to “re-engineer” your neighborhood, but remember, it’s for the “good of the whole.”   In other words, the feds are on a manifesto mission to collectivize and micromanage public housing and zoning and change the socioeconomic, racial, religious and ethnic mixture of nearly every American neighborhood, regardless of sexual orientation, public input or individual rights.  And this is the grand wisdom offered for a smart city.  But don’t forget, before these units are built, there are project impacts, studies, environmental concerns, air quality analysis, greenhouse gas, complicated mitigation aspects and more.

And who’s paying for all of this? 

The head planner explained that it will be none other than the taxpayers.  Welcome to the green $$ zone.

But there’s more.    

1,250 municipalities across the land of the of the “free”, will be asked to “diversify” their neighborhoods or risk losing HUD’s housing manna.  Well, doesn’t that just take all.  Karl Marx would be thrilled beyond measure with this angle.  But, you say that you are
opposed to mixing good ole suburbia and rural America with a notorious urban living arrangement which is mostly consistent in larger cities?  Yes, that is all well and good, however, Washington D.C. and the State of California is not interested in your opinion
and they are already embarking upon a general plan using more of your “grant money”  to mix and transform America’s neighborhoods.  Now, take note of this next statement.

“Putting decisions about how local communities are run in the hands of federal bureaucrats is an assault on freedom. Local autonomy is essential to liberty.”   Marc A.
Thiessen; Washington Post, 6/7/15    

So, this calls for wisdom. 

Don’t wait for HUD, the state, or our elected county supervisors and community development planners to redesign a neighborhood that may be mostly free from drugs and crime.  Just make sure the idea never gets off the ground.  Begin to educate administrators about the dangers of in-culturating unstable, hostile and rebellious people into an already stable and peaceful environment, because in the end, HUD and/or the state with their mandates, will destroy a stable community to where it will become infected with the same mega problems that already plague major cities.  If we recall, the same people who came to us with the “let it burn” forestry mismanagement polices and the thousands of factory closures are also the very same people who will bring us a re-engineered neighborhood that will destroy itself quite rapidly.

We are no longer talking about the “housing element.”  We are quite  frankly talking about the “human element.”

A STACK N’ PAK WORLD

_______________________________________________

Over 200 hundred years ago Thomas Jefferson who penned the Declaration of Independence believed that America would be far better off in a rural setting than urbanization. He also warned us against building large cities such as the likes of London as they would breed demoralization, crime, corruption, violence, racism, growing poverty, drug abuse, house to house and apartment living, stress and unrest and no hope for the future.

Yes, our country would have been far better off if we had followed the words of Jefferson for we could had avoided the urban fallout and the likes of Detroit where “Urban Renewal” imploded like so many other far fetched ideas that dealt with high rise apartment buildings which would end up being destroyed one way or another, and also by their own occupants in places such as New York City. Yet, with big city planners it was business as usual. They were shooting blanks on the range with not even a target in sight. However, the offspring of these same city planners have bungled once again and have not learned from the devastating inner city experiment. The latest blueprint on the drawing board is still for high rise centers while showcasing Agenda 21 micro-apartments nationwide where the people will be stacked n’ packed as rats while using a bicycle for their journey to the nearest rec. center where they will be able to trim themselves down on a tread mill. And that will be the American Dream? Spare me.

Pulp fiction is a way better term to explain sustainable living in a not so brave, New World Order. It’s about as entertaining as a clown on a unicycle in a three ring circus. Cities are becoming infested with gangs while frustrated people cannot find peace and harmony or the meaning of life. The truth of the matter is that America is imploding. Overpopulated cities do not offer enough freedom, activity or recreation such as hiking, fishing, hunting and camping , or hitting the trail on a horse which allows the individual to experience a natural and quiet environment vs. an unnatural and chaotic urban world. Also see ”Implosion” here…

Now then, white mice or rats are a unique measure that might be used in explaining the social failures of stacking n’ packing people. It was Dr. John B. Calhoun from the National Institute of Health in Washington D.C. who spearheaded an extremely important study with 3,000 mice living in an overpopulated condition and close quarters. However, no matter how ideal the circumstances were, they could not adapt to their environment.

The mouse utopia began to break down and after about a year, violence began to surface and the mice were losing their ability to function in a normal manner. They started to die in great numbers as they could not adjust to their “utopia” type surroundings. Eventually, the entire mouse population perished while living in their multi-level home. The experiment offers serious reservations and revelations when considering a comparative analysis with regard to human behavior and one’s own social adaptation in an overcrowded environment.

()

Comparatively, Japan, a very overcrowded country, gives us a glimpse of city living along with one of the world’s highest suicide rates which is the leading cause of death for people under 30. Factors in suicides in the country include social pressure, depression and unemployment. Crime is another growing problem.

Although Japan is one of the safest countries in the world, the Japanese are greatly concerned about recent increases in violent crime and crimes against property. There is a suicide in Japan every 15 minutes including close to 33,000 reported in 2009. A loss for the meaning of life, also enters into this equation, but all the while “sustainable” social engineers in America are planning mega-city apartments while flushing people out of rural and mountainous areas by not allowing more job creation and closing down access to the public forest lands.

Also, planners and environmental agencies purposely limit growth by turning down companies who wish to relocate in rural areas. It is all part of the U.N. Agenda 21 model and also Big Brother’s idea of controlling the masses worldwide. And with prisons in America already being maxed out, an RFID ankle bracelet might suffice in a stack n’ pak world.

There are real solutions for America and the world but is anyone listening?

Proposed Collection of Information on Wild Horses & Burros; BLM Requests Comments

4 Comments

The BLM is now planning to do a “knowledge and values study” on wild horses & burros using focus groups.  The focus groups are to include the usual special interest groups (the same ones that are so vocal against wild horses & burros on the BLM Resource Advisory Councils/RACs).

Most of us aren’t perusing the Federal Register on a daily basis, but an advocate alerted us to the notice below.  We should all ask WHO will APPOINT/SELECT the people who will take part in these focus groups.  The BLM proposes to have “guides” (a prepared agenda) for the groups, presumably to limit the topics you can talk about.  The questions/discussions will then likely be designed to lead you to whatever predetermined outcome the BLM wants.  Read HERE about the BLM and use of the Delphi Technique.

This is not free speech.  Will the topics include the delay of the issuance of the investigation report of the 1,700 wild horses Tom Davis bought?  Will the focus groups be updated on the current number of deaths of wild horses at the BLM’s Scott City, Kansas feedlot?  Will the participants be able to review any vet reports or necropsy reports from the Scott City feedlot?

This undemocratic process seems to be a way for the BLM to feign interest in listening to the public,  while in reality, it continues its efforts to contrive what could seem to the public to be some sort of a consensus.

I wonder if the BLM will ever have focus groups or advisory councils on wild horse & burro issues that are composed ONLY of real wild horse & burro advocates, who all care about the welfare of the wild horses and burros (instead of special interest “stakeholders” who focus on how to get rid of them).  The comment period for this proposed focus group farce ends May 11, 2015.  This is destined to be another unscientific “study” as the BLM continues to operate like a dog chasing its tail.  –  Debbie Coffey

The “Endangered” Frog and Toad-Revisited

Leave a comment

new-logo25Author,
Chuck Frank
lightofthenation.us

Recently, the US Fish and Wildlife issued their biological opinion regarding how the nine Sierra Nevada National Forests in California must address the endangered yellow-legged frog and the Yosemite toad. If 197 pages is too much for you to read then here is a snapshot.mountain frog

Now, perhaps many of you out there recall the many public hearings on whether to list the yellow-legged frog and the Yosemite Toad as a threatened or endangered species.

Most of the people that went to these hearings, Congressman, Tom McClintock for one, and thousands of others were strongly opposed to the listing. I too showed up for the grand occasion.

With as many people who went as the “anti-listers”, I coined a word, you would have thought that the Fish and Wildlife agency would have listened.

Well, as it turned out, the public hearings were just a formality, an exercise, a procedure that was meant to give the public input while the Feds, all along, had no intention of doing what the majority of the public wanted. Fish and Wildlife is sadly tuned into the Enviro-Times, and that is our latest environmentalist radio show streaming from the planet Mars. So I dialed in on K-ECO and low and behold the Sierra National Forest Service Management is “very concerned” about the immense  impact of protecting frog and toad together.

Unless we forget, we were told that the identification of these species as endangered would not have ANY significant impact on Sierra National Forest or public access. Sure. Well, well, well, think again.  It is all by design and deception. We were not told the truth and the lies of Fish and Wildlife have now been exposed. What we had feared is now coming upon us.

And here is the rest of the story.

No permits are being issued at this time until these rules are clarified for summer grazing in the Sierra National Forest. This ruling could and is already adversely affecting recreation, along with All-Terrain-Vehicles, firewood cutting, fishing, hunting, and logging, because it delineates that no wheeled vehicles may be used in the forest that “may be” a habitat for the Yosemite frog. This would also effect mechanical thinning, which is one way of reducing ladder fuels, which contribute to high intensity uncharacteristic wildfires.

For the Forest Service management to protect what the US Fish and Wildlife life is requiring, it will take away significant resources from areas like forest restoration to prevent uncharacteristic wildfires, as well as many other areas. These rules represent another Agenda 21 unfunded nightmare mandate.

In a nutshell, if our Congressmen, Sheriffs and County Supervisors do not stop the encroachment of our National Forests and the public right to use them, we the people will be left in the dust and radical environmentalism will continue to chip away at our God given land rights to where millions will bow to the new enviro-gods of the Fish and Wildlife Agency.

And, by the way, don’t include me in any of the Sunday morning worship services honoring the czars of Fish and Wildlife.

The Fractured American Family

_____________________________________________________

Historically, for nearly 400 years the American family which began with native Americans and European roots became an integral foundational part of the country that we now know.  Though many trials were encountered along the way the traditional family weathered the storms of life and not only built a country that became like no other, the people held on to cultural and moral values that were enshrined in one Judeo-Christian nation, under God, which also included holy matrimony between a man and a woman. But where are we today?

Here is a not so golden snapshot.

Since 2005, the majority of U.S. households have not been headed by married couples. The number of non-married-couple households continues to grow (ACS 2005-2007). There are more than 51 million households headed by unmarried Americans, representing roughly 44% of all households and the majority of households in 23 states, plus the District of Columbia (CPS, 2007).

The World Summit & The Climate Changers

The sky is falling while the world is a-buzz with the effects of warming trends and climate change. A little hot air here, and a little CO2 there will bring about the best loan sharks along with the world banking elite who will gladly “lend” their billions and services “at interest” to any nation reeling from the greenhouse effect. But, how many “let it burn” forests do the climate changers need each year to accomplish their warming and trendy goals?

Now then, the world’s political leaders will gather in New York on the 23rd of September for a special summit. U.N. Climate Secretary Ed Davey was quoted as saying the following;

“I think there’s a lot of support for having something that is legally binding, it’s just the extent of what is covered by that, is where the negotiations will be.”

Legally binding? Now, doesn’t that kind of mean the world’s taxpayers will get hit when governments sustainable targets are NOT MET? I’m sure it does. Has anyone heard of the backdoor gas tax? It’s been
talked about.

Ok, so factories and automobiles have been targeted as those mighty greenhouse agents causing higher temperatures. And then there is the three year drought in California that is affecting the rain and snow. But does this theory truly prove that climate change will be here for a long, long time?

Interestingly enough, environmental science is suspiciously lacking in the auto/factory category, because when the dots are all connected we find that one of the largest contributors to CO2 (carbon dioxide) levels in the atmosphere happens to be wildfire smoke!

Hello! Why is this always missing in most of the “climate” studies? More

Ninja Turtles Used To Evict Nevada Ranchers

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Bundy’s situation was analyzed “legally” and politically for propaganda value before orders were given to the BLM to set this giganticus raticus fornicus in motion. Long-term, there’s mind prep unfolding here similar to the staged city lock-down in Boston and Sandy Hoax.

The BLM was handed a plan.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rancher Cliven Bundy maintains Nevada, not the feds, owns the land where his cattle graze. Regardless of a lower federal court’s ruling against him ( and against this Nevada rancher, the BLM raid on his ranch and the killing of his cattle isn’t about fees—it’s about using turtles to put him out of business.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA)” are blackjacks—along with the fed’s bait and switch “conservation easements” scam —that are used in tandem by government to either drive ranchers, farmers, and private property owners off their land, or to take control of their land with “model” conservation easements that leave government in charge of what they can or cannot do on a piece of property that might have been in their family for a century; driving its value through the floor in the process.

The feds have also attempted to add the Clean Water Act to their bag of unconstitutional thefts in the past, but the Supreme Court ruled against them twice. The first time in a 5-4 decision against the Corps of Engineers who, citing the Clean Water Act and the EPA’s Migratory Bird Rule as their authority, tried to stop a consortium of Chicago municipalities from using an abandoned sand and gravel pit for a solid waste disposal site by invoking the Commerce Clause that would have given the feds authority over such water; arguing that migratory birds needed the gravel pit water, and that protection of migratory birds was “…a national interest of very nearly the first magnitude…and millions of people spend over a billion dollars annually on recreational pursuits relating to migratory birds.”

The Court didn’t buy it, saying: “…we find nothing approaching a clear statement from Congress it intended the (sic, Clean Water Act) to reach an abandoned sand and gravel pit…to claim federal jurisdiction over ponds and mud flats falling within the “Migratory Bird Rule” would result in significant impingement of the state’s traditional and primary power over land and water use.”

In Rapanos v. United States , John A. Rapanos backfilled a portion of his 54 acres in Michigan prior to development. The nearest body of navigable water was 11 to 20 miles away. Government regulators informed Mr. Rapanos that his “. . .saturated fields were waters of the United States that could not be filled without a permit.”

The Supreme Court ruled against them again.

Now, the feds have ignored these two Supreme Court rulings and are trying to again take control of all waters in the U.S..

The BLM’s turtles—of which there are “only” about 100,00 left —have littered Nevada’s landscape with ranching casualties. Bundy’s ranch and lease—the only one left out of 50 in the area—are teetering at the edge of this bone pile. More

Property Rights At Stake in the Florida Senate

 The latest threat to property rights, not to mention just bad government policy, is
SB 1576 entitled, “An act relating to springs.”

It is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Committee on Environmental Protection and Conservation Thursday, March 20, at 8 AM. You can see the bill by going to

www.flsenate.gov and inserting the bill number in the search engine.

Many, if not most, Floridians recognize the need to protect water quantity and quality. And, that certainly means protecting Florida’s springs and aquifer. Politicians know this and some want to join the stampede to pass “something” to “protect” springs. But, don’t be fooled…SB 1576 will not do that. Here’s why

SB 1576 needlessly targets septic systems as a significant contributor to nitrogen pollution. More

Democrats Against UN Agenda 21

_______________________________________________________________

THE RIGHT OF THE PUBLIC TO KNOW WHAT THE POLICIES OF ITS GOVERNMENT ARE, WITHOUT DANGER TO OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS, HAS BEEN DESTROYED.
THIS IS UN AGENDA 21.  

________________________________________________________________

In late January, 2014, CSPAN aired a Columbia University School of Journalism panel discussion entitled Journalism After Snowden.  It was re-aired a couple of nights ago and I watched it, spellbound.  Notably, the panel included the editor in chief of The Guardian Newspaper (USA branch) Janine Gibson; the executive editor of the New York Times, Jill Abramson; Cass Sunstein, Obama’s former head of Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs and Harvard Law professor who was recently appointed by the President to an NSA review panel.  
4854113The Guardian-USA was the first newspaper to be contacted by Snowden and broke the story.  Janine Gibson, editor in chief, stated that had the information been given to the Guardian in England it would never have reached the public.  The newspaper’s hard drives were destroyed under pressure from the British government.  If she had not collaborated with the New York Times, said Gibson, the information would have been lost.  
New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson stated in as intense a way as possible that journalists are under threat of prosecution if they publish a story because THE GOVERNMENT HAS CHANGED THE RULES FOR A FREE EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION.   In our free society a journalist had been willing to go to jail to protect the identity of a source.  This dedication to a free press has been a vital part of our republic.  More

A note from Rosa Koire (author of “Behind the Green Mask”):

On October 30, at 8:30 p.m. (Eastern Time), “For The Record,” a 60-Minutes-style news program on Blaze TV, will air “The Agenda” a documentary on UN Agenda 21 and regional planning.  This excellent, well-produced program examines the impacts of Smart Growth and regional over-reach on the San Francisco Bay Area, Detroit, and Portland.  I was pleased to be featured in the show and hope that you’ll be able to watch and share it with your fellow activists and friends.

To watch for free, click here.

We are fighting to stop the worst regional plan in the United States here in the San Francisco Bay Area–its impacts will be felt all across the nation.  We believe it will be the template for the rest of the country and have launched a legal challenge to stop it.  Will you help us defeat this UN Agenda 21 plan by making a donation to the legal fund?

Thank you for your commitment to exposing and fighting UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development.  Awareness is the first step in the Resistance.

Thank you,

California Bill #1: includes Infrastructure Financing Districts

Leave a comment

new-logo25 Heather Gass

_________________________________________________________

Senate Bill #1 (Steinberg and DeSaulnier)  is one of the most dangerous bills and must be stopped!

Please read this and forward to all your email lists. We need to stop this bill. It has already passed the Senate and is going to Assembly! Call your state Assembly member and ask them to oppose this bill!  Here’s the full text of the bill

http://leginfo.ca.gov/pub/13-14/bill/sen/sb_0001-0050/sb_1_bill_20130502_amended_sen_v97.pdf

Contact Info for Gov. Brown’s office: Ask him to VETO

California Governor Jerry Brown State Capitol, 1st Fl., Sacramento, CA 95814 Fax:(916)558-3160 Tel:(916)445-2841 email: governor@governor.ca.gov

Complete list of all Assembly Members and their contact info here:  Ask them to vote NO

http://assembly.ca.gov/assemblymembers

Summary:

If Steinberg’s SB 1 (Steinberg’s Sustainable Communities Investment Authority) becomes law, what will the cost be to you and each and everyone of us who own private property parcels? I believe this is one of the most dangerous bills and will be the worst abuse of power in California’s history, if the Governor doesn’t Veto this bill.  Danger here is the Democrats may have super majority over the Governor’s Veto Power.  (SB 1 was Steinberg’s SB 1156 last year and the resurrection of Statewide Redevelopment Agencies, but with a new credit card);

SB 1 includes Infrastructure Financing Districts (Senator Lois Wolk SB 33) and Transit Districts (Assemblywoman Ma or other authors).  Are you 1/2 mile from a bus or transit stop?  SB 1 allows high density 1/2 mile from a bus or transit stop:

No blight findings are required to take private property parcels by Eminent Domain, so the State is saying our private property parcels of all kinds belong to them:

Property Tax Increments like Redevelopment Agencies would divert property taxes from within project area boundaries directly into the general fund of the new “Authority”, “Agency”, or government entity that’s created, which means property taxes would not go to the City or County general funds to pay for public services, but would go directly to the new Authority or Agency and away from special districts like fire and police protection, parks, and libraries (schools would be exempt);

Projects would have to comply with Steinberg’s SB 375, which connects land use to AB 32 Global Warming/Climate Change Implementation – (My older neighborhood with large lots does not comply with SB 375, so does that mean my neighborhood is not sustainable and blighted?);

The Governors’s High Speed Rail is protected in this bill;

No Voter Approval to create more debt and to create new project boundaries, which could force residents to continually pay for new projects and improvements:

Only Union workers  are hired, which would eliminate jobs to those who are not union paying members (Only Project Labor Agreements):

Cities, Counties, and Special Districts can create Joint Powers Agreements/Agencies/Authorities (JPA) and elect a Board that would consist of elected officials, who would than appoint a JPA Director.   How many JPA’s do you have in your City and/or County?  Power would be power to a Director/Chair of a new Board, who is not elected by the people:

Doesn’t it appear that this bill would give unknown power to schools, police, fire, libraries, parks, etc. and allow them to borrow money to pay for unfunded pensions and private property parcel owners would be forced to pay for this new debt, but  not be allowed to cast our vote in opposition or support?

Please contact your representative in the State Legislature, including Senator Pro tem Darrell Steinberg and the Governor showing your opposition.  It’s time for tax increment financing to be eliminated or reformed so only those who pay property taxes can vote in support or opposition to an increase of higher property taxes on our property tax bill.
