Any ideas the United Nations had about taking over the State of Alabama are gone. Both Houses of Alabama’s legislature unanimously passed Senate Bill 477 (SB 477), known around Montgomery as the “Due Process for Property Rights” Act and by doing so sent a loud and clear message to anyone wishing to impose United Nations control on Alabama to back off!
While almost no Democrat media cheerleader mentioned the bill, the law will likely become the model for get tough/push back efforts against the cowards on the Left who want the United Nations to do the “dirty work” of putting America under international socialist law.
Using strong and specific language, SB 477 orders all state agencies to refuse to cooperate in any UN scheme to subvert the sovereignty of Alabama. It says, “The State of Alabama and all political subdivisions may not adopt or implement policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe or restrict private property rights without due process, as may be required by policy recommendations originating in, or traceable to ‘Agenda 21.’ ”
The insidious Agenda 21 has been using many non-governmental organizations to work at the grassroots toward forcing One-World Government on the people of many parts of the world.
Of course, as the law points out, the UN has enlisted a broad array of non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations in its effort to foist Agenda 21 on the world — most notably a Germany-based group called ICLEI, formerly known as the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives. But the new measure takes direct aim at that problem, too: “the State of Alabama and all political subdivisions may not enter into any agreement, expend any sum of money, or receive funds contracting services, or giving financial aid to or from” any such entities, as defined in Agenda 21 documents.
Although Agenda 21 has not passed the United States Senate, passing S B 477 with complete bipartisan support makes it clear that Alabama doesn’t trust Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid not to ram it through a la Obamacare.
Alabamians are not fooled by Democrats’ deceptive “Smart Growth” or “Green jobs” schemes that insert federal funding tentacles into the sovereign State of Alabama’s affairs.
