Regionalism Destroys the American System of Government
Regional government organizations like the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) are usurping sovereignty and control from our locally elected city, town and county officials. ABAG regulators are unelected and unaccountable to the citizens, and are implementing policies created by international organizations such as the United Nations and ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability).
California Councils of Governments map
It doesn’t stop there – The map to the left shows the so-called “Councils of Governments” (COGs) as represented by the California Association of Councils of Governments (CALCOG). The entire state of California is being transformed. California belongs to its citizens and they alone should determine our future. We intend to tell the story and turn the tide against globalization in order to restore local control to where it belongs.
San Francisco Bay Area Leads Nation in Globalist Effort to Restructure Local American Governments
This website explores the following three areas:
ABAG is working to politically “regionalize” the San Francisco Bay Area. The plan is called “One Bay Area” or “Plan Bay Area 2040”. This site seeks to summarize and illustrate how ABAG is seeking to regionalize 9 counties in their proposed One Bay Area/Plan Bay Area 2040 edict. Opposition to this program is evidenced with our lawsuit filed against ABAG. The Appellate Court failed to adjudicate our case after three years of sitting on the lawsuit. The Court whitewashed their decision citing changes in financing of ABAG and declared our case moot. Additionally, they unpublished their decision and denied review. The State Supreme Court denied certiorari review.
Citizens for Free Speech has constructed Billboards that notice the public of ABAG’s objectives and activities. The Press has been totally silent on the ABAG issue.
Regionalism is Globalism is Sustainable Development is Agenda 21 is U.N. 2030 Agenda
Don’t let your locale become like California:
Regionalism – The Blueprint for Your Serfdom
by Michael Shaw
Did you know that some of your local elected representatives are enabling a shadow government to evolve? These people promote the reinvention of government through their support of, and appointments to, “regional” boards that act like soviet councils. These councils are funded to implement Agenda 21. Federal tax dollars fuel their appeal, but your city and county representatives do not have to go along.
Gone are the days when government was limited, where individuals were politically acknowledged to possess unalienable rights, and where money was honest. The American political structure has been transformed. This has occurred quietly for more than 50 years without public awareness of the mechanisms underlying the change.
At the core of this transformation is the political process of “regionalizing” the country. Political regionalism is the antithesis of representative government. Regionalism restructures or reinvents the operation of American government by destroying traditional political boundaries, such as county lines, and ushers in a transformed system of governance that ultimately abolishes private property and the rights of the individual. Regionalism has infiltrated cities and counties everywhere, affecting transportation, water, farming and land use systems… literally every aspect of your life.
A leading example of regional control is emerging in the San Francisco Bay Area. There, the COG is known as ABAG, the Association of Bay Area Governments. ABAG, in association with ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) has launched the “One Bay Area” program known as Plan Bay Area 2040. One Bay Area or Plan Bay Area 2040 is the local federalized and internationalized plan for the implementation of Agenda 21. This 9 county, 101 city (with a combined population of 7 ½ million people) “regional” plan is designed as a full commitment to the collectivist program of Smart Growth and wild area set asides.
Over the next 20 years 630,000 new residential units are projected by ABAG. ALL residential construction specified by the plan is be multi-family housing. Fully 80% of the planned housing must be within ½ mile of newly designated “transit corridors.” One such transit corridor, El Camino Real, is the major artery from San Jose to San Francisco and is planned to be transformed into a series of government controlled stack ‘n pack smart growth developments. Ultimately all private vehicles will be banned from El Camino.
To accomplish this and much more, the federal government has committed a quarter of a trillion dollars to ABAG’s Plan Bay Area 2040 program! Despite widespread opposition as Plan Bay Area 2040 was rolled out, the plan is moving forward pursuant to a shortened and rigged approval process – a sign of things to come all across the country.
ABAG and Plan Bay Area 2040 evidence that government no longer operates pursuant to Constitutional design. As a result, we all lose government protection and defense of unalienable rights.
