Liberticide — destruction of LIBERTY

The year is more than half gone as we prepare to commemorate the birth of our nation. And we’ve been after the Town of Abingdon since January to show ICLEI the door.

The Declaration of Independence, the first published document of the American people was forged to assert our un-a-lien-able rights. Rights granted by God

The difference between unalienable and inalienable? Inalienable rights are those which the possessor may give away. God, incomparably beneficent in His generosity, bestowed us with un-a-lien-able rights, for all of perpetuity. But that doesn’t mean that thieves don’t come stalking at the back door, under the cover of darkness to rob us of our liberty. Or in this case, under the guise of “Sustainable Development”.

“They” are outed. We’re awake now. We know about Obama’s Rural Council. And we’re horrified by the…

New River Valley “Rural Sustainability Hub” HUD grant.

EXCUSE ME?? Uhhh, let’s just get HUD, the EPA and the DOT together to figure out HOW and WHERE we will be able to live, work, breathe and GROW and CONSUME food? Let’s not only do it in the NRV, let’s do it throughout the country, sprinkling $100 Million worth of grants around like fairy dust to make sure folks are livin’ right, down to the last detail. Can you say “soviet“? Further, can you even buleev that the Pulaski County Board of Supervisors DID NOT EVEN KNOW THAT THEY HAD VOTED AND PASSED THEIR APPROVAL TO PARTICIPATE? Their Monday, June 27th BOS meeting was a show-stopper! It was a classic movie moment when they all looked at each other to ask if anyone remembered voting on it. Nancy Pelosi would be so proud. We’ll pass it (we did, right?) and then see what’s in it.

Why worry? Executive Director of the New River Valley Planning District, Kevin Byrd, reassured us that the “Livability Initiative” is “whatever you want it to be”. Aaaaahhhh….what a comfort. In a private meeting with Mr. Byrd and his Community Outreach Facilitator, Carol Davis on June 22nd, concerned property owners from Floyd, Pulaski and Dublin were endeared with this news. What if we want to be an Advisory Member on the NRV Sustainable Communities Consortium, curiously lacking any property owner representation on the list of 23 participating groups? “We’ll have to look into that,” we were told—about three different times in the course of our one-hour meeting. No worries, though….because “we’re all about being transparent and all-inclusive!”

We know about ICLEI.

They’re partnered with 18 local governments throughout Virginia, 600 plus in the US. Recently minus 1—way to go, Albermarle County! ICLEI is being outed all over the country.

What we don’t understand is why, after sharing copious amounts of information with the Town of Abingdon’s mayor, vice mayor and Town Council, we seem to have a failure to communicate. At least the Washington County Board of Supervisors has chosen to drop their unanimous vote in favor of taking part in the benign-sounding “Virginia Go Green Government Challenge”. The Virginia Municipal League oughta be run outta town on a rail for this ruse that they perpetrate all over the Commonwealth! When did their mission ” to improve and assist local governments through legislative advocacy, research, education“ include sneaking the Kyoto Treaty protocols through the back door into local governments and schools? Exactly when did they decide to do what the United States Senate never ratified and four more countries just abandoned?  The Town of Abingdon decided that lowering the carbon footprint by 30% —using ICLEI’s handy software—is a nifty way to address a lifeless economy? Did anyone ever think to consult the voters on this decision? Does Mayor Morgan really think that the Supreme Court should decide if it’s constitutional to hook up with an avowed globalist organization that disdains our national (and individual) sovereignty?

Laches? We don’t need no stinkin’ LACHES. 

But, we thought serving up our representatives with a Doctrine of Laches to refresh their memories on the oaths that they took to the Constitution might just be the ticket. So in celebration of 235 years of independence from Britain, we commemorate this historic event by presenting the Pulaski County Board of Supervisors and the Abingdon Town Council with a Constitutional refresher course! Pulaski County was publicly served on Monday, June 27th. Mayor Morgan, Vice Mayor Lowe and Councilmen Jason Berry, Bob Howard and Rick Humphreys are served on Thursday, June 30th. Just a gentle reminder, that…

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

The DOCTRINE OF LACHES  

is based on the maxim that equity aids the vigilant and not those who procrastinate regarding their rights, nor those who neglect to assert a right or claim that, together with a lapse of time and other circumstances, prejudices and adverse party; and by neglecting to do what should, or could, have been done to assert a claim or right for an unreasonable and unjustified time causes disadvantage to another.

  • It is hereby stated publicly that we perceive the incremental usurpation of our God-granted unalienable rights as an inherent component of the Town of Abingdon’s partnership with ICLEI, a United Nations affilliate, confirmed by the ICLEI Charter.
  • It is hereby stated publicly that incremental usurpation of our God-granted unalienable rights is an inherent component of the New River Valley Livability Initiative in the threat we feel that it poses to personal liberty and property rights.
  • And it is hereby stated that we shall endeavor, and by all peaceful means strive to reverse the repressive and dictatorial powers of local and regional government.

After all, this is what YOU said:

Code of Virginia § 49.1 – “I do solemnly swear  that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge all the duties incumbent upon me as [your elected office] according to the best of my ability, so help me God.

Happy Independence Day!
