One-World Governance Policies begin in New Rochelle, NY

The revolutionary and Luciferian (he dedicated his book “Rules for Radicals” to Lucifer…aka Satan) Saul Alinsky said “"True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within.” Alinsky also taught that community organizing (aka ‘teaching radicalism and Satanic concepts’) must begin at the local level and in a forceful manner. Karl Marx, his partner Frederich Engels and Vladimir Lenin wrote and believed the same. Adolph Hitler, along with Marx and the rest, also believed that environmental elements and ‘saving the planet’ were excellent ploys to be brought into every speech and were needed in order to shame and bully a population into submission. It worked--and still works--remarkably well.

Today, in the USA and the rest of the world, we now have the UN Agenda 21--which, in New Rochelle, NY (as well as other towns and cities throughout the nation) is attempting implementation via ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). At one fell swoop, a city becomes part of the “international community” and no longer accountable to its State or nation. And without the population realizing it, the city becomes part of the international order and one-world government commences with its attendant end to freedom, self-determination and the right to make any life decisions on one‘s own. Thus, the end of liberty--and life as we know it--begins.

So it is in New Rochelle, New York.

The Interview

Sher: Robert, thanks so much for taking the time, today, to speak to my readers. When we spoke a few days ago, we talked at length about how Agenda 21 has been introduced into the New Rochelle community via ICLEI or the “International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives.” Through ICLEI, the United Nations’ Agenda 21--which is designed to take over all local authority via its guise of a “sustainability agenda”--takes control of and makes decisions on virtually everything within a city and/or county. What initially prompted you to school yourself on Agenda 21 and to pursue a campaign against it?

Robert: During his annual State of the City Address in 2009, Mayor Bramson announced that New Rochelle was one of three localities selected for an ICLEI Pilot Program. That was the first time I had ever heard the word "ICLEI". I am sure that many of the people in room applauding the announcement had never heard of ICLEI either. I later learned that many believed that the Mayor was announcing some sort of federal grant.

I have learned that when our Mayor is talking about something I have never heard of before, it is a good idea to do some research. The more I learned about ICLEI the more concerned I became about it.

Sher: New Rochelle’s Mayor Noam Bramson has been highly in favor of pushing the ICLEI agenda onto the city and may not have provided accurate information about what may or will befall New Rochelle if the program is implemented. What has been his response to your enlightening the community as to the real extent of its (and his) purpose?

Robert: My deepest concern with ICLEI in New Rochelle is that our Mayor and his supporters have gone to great lengths to misrepresent ICLEI as a homegrown association of local governments staffed by eager 30-something staffers who want to do good. The Mayor has repeatedly denied any association between New Rochelle and the United Nations despite the undeniable and rather obvious fact that New Rochelle is a member of ICLEI and ICLEI is a part of the UN system to implement Agenda 21.

When an ICLEI representative appeared before our City Council she flat-out lied in responding to a direct question on the origins and funding of ICLEI.

I might add that our City Council never held a vote to authorize joining ICLEI. When asked about this at a public meeting by Council Member Louis Trangucci, our City Manager said that joining ICLEI was implied when the ICLEI representative spoke before Council.

As for our Mayor, he has sought to demonize and demagogue the issue. He refuses to address legitimate questions about ICLEI, instead engaging in ad hominem attacks. As the leading critic of ICLEI in New Rochelle, much of his vitriol has been directed at me. A fair amount has gone to Council Member Trangucci who was the only member of Council to vote against the Mayor's Local Agenda 21 Plan named GreeNR.

Sher: One of the things we discussed over the phone was that Mayor Bramson had told you and others that "there is no relationship between New Rochelle and the UN". Yet, a husband and wife team (Steven and Mrs. Nakashima) in the community who were appointed by Mayor Bramson to assist in implementing the program both work for the United Nations. I also understand that Mrs. Nakashima’s work at the UN involves running an Agenda 21 organization. Has Mayor Bramson explained his previous contradictory statement?

Robert: The Mayor has repeatedly dismissed any expression of concern about the connections between his GreeNR plan and ICLEI and the UN's Agenda 21 Plan as the stuff of conspiracy theories. Not only is there a direct connection between ICLEI and the UN but the mayor appointed a UN employee to his advisory board, the spouse of a senior UN official.

Steven Nakashima is a UN employee who works in the Avian Flu program. His wife is Sophie de Caen. She is the Director of the $1 billion MDG Achievement Fund in New York. MDG stands for Millennium Development Goals. Goal 7, but listed first on her site, is Environment and Climate Change where the stated goal is to "integrate the principles of sustainable development into country policies and programmes". I have, so far, found direct connections to the UN for two other Advisory Board members.

Sher: What are you now doing to educate the people of New Rochelle and other communities about these organizations’ true agenda of eliminating the sovereignty of the USA and individual States, in favor of a one world government organization?

Robert: My focus is to educate New Rochelle residents on the large gap between the Mayor's rhetoric and reality at a local level. It is enough for me to educate residents on the fact that New Rochelle joined ICLEI without any public hearing or public discussion or City Council vote. That our being part of the ICLEI pilot program has not been the source of federal grant money but instead has required spending hundreds of thousands of dollars. I want New Rochelleans to understand that the Mayor is not being factual when he denies any connection between his GreeNR plan and the United Nations. There is the direct connection that runs from ICLEI to Local Agenda 21 to Agenda 21 and the UN Commission on Sustainable Development. His GreeNR plan is a UNCSD Local Agenda 21 Plan. It does not get any more direct than that.

Sher: If anyone would like to reach you for more information or to invite you for a speaking engagement, how should they contact you?

Robert: The best way to reach me is through the contact information on Talk of the Sound.

Sher: Thanks again, Robert, and we wish you the very best!
