This is where Petsche’s progressive world started


A basic primer on UN Agenda 21 aka Sustainable Development

This image is of Petsche’s world with him in the shining city and the rest of us in poverty. Brecksville has been targeted for take over and we must resist. Agenda 21 in all of its various flavors is nothing more than a clever means of implementing communism in America.

In One Easy Lesson

Awareness of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development was started by Bill Clinton in 1993, 26 years ago and its US implementation is now at the local level across the nation. Bike paths are a key part of the program. Some citizens in community after community are learning what their city planners are actually up to. As awareness grows many complain that elected officials just won’t read detailed reports or watch long videos.

So here is some help. A starter kit  of information on Agenda 21 that can be used to get started. A word of caution, use this as a starter kit, but do not allow it to be your only knowledge of this very complex subject. To kill it you have to know the facts. Research, know your details; discover the NGO players in your community; identify who is victimized by the policies and recruit them to your fight; and then kill Agenda 21. That’s how it must be done. The information below is only your first step. Happy hunting.

What is Sustainable Development?

According to its authors, the objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity. Sustainablists insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.

Social Equity (Social injustice)

Social justice is described as the right and opportunity of all people “to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment.” Redistribution of wealth. Private property is a social injustice since not everyone can build wealth from it. National sovereignty is a social injustice. Universal health care is a social injustice. All part of Agenda 21 policy.

Economic Prosperity

Public Private Partnerships (PPP). Special dealings between government and certain, chosen corporations which get tax breaks, grants and the government’s power of

Eminent Domain to implement sustainable policy. Government-sanctioned monopolies.

Local Sustainable Development policies

Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, STAR Sustainable Communities, Green jobs, Green Building Codes, “Going Green,” Alternative Energy, Local Visioning, facilitators, regional planning, historic preservation, conservation easements, development rights, sustainable farming, comprehensive planning, growth management, consensus.

Who is behind it?

ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (formally, International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). Communities pay ICLEI dues to provide “local” community plans, software, training, etc. Additional groups include American Planning Association, The Renaissance Planning Group, International City/ County Management Group, aided by US Mayors Conference, National Governors Association, National League of Cities, National Association of County Administrators and many more private organizations and official government agencies. Foundation and government grants drive the process.

Where did it originate?

The term Sustainable Development was first introduced to the world in the pages of a 1987 report (Our Common Future) produced by the United Nations World Commission on Environmental and Development, authored by Gro Harlem Brundtland, VP of the World Socialist Party. The term was first offered as official UN policy in 1992, in a document called UN Sustainable Development Agenda 21, issued at the UN’s Earth Summit, today referred to simply as Agenda 21.

What gives Agenda 21 Ruling Authority?

More than 178 nations adopted Agenda 21 as official policy during a signing ceremony at the Earth Summit. US president George H.W. Bush signed the document for the US. In signing, each nation pledge to adopt the goals of Agenda 21. In 1993, President Bill Clinton, in compliance with Agenda 21, signed Executive Order #12852 to create the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in order to “harmonize” US environmental policy with UN directives as outlined in Agenda 21. The EO directed all agencies of the Federal Government to work with state and local community governments in a joint effort “reinvent” government using the guidelines outlined in Agenda 21. As a result, with the assistance of groups like ICLEI, Sustainable Development is now emerging as government policy in every town, county and state in the nation.

Revealing Quotes From the Planners

“Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by EVERY person on Earth…it calls for specific changes in the activities of ALL people… Effective execution of Agenda 21 will REQUIRE a profound reorientation of ALL humans, unlike anything the world has ever experienced… ” Agenda 21: The Earth Summit Strategy to Save Our Planet (Earthpress, 1993). Emphases – DR

Urgent to implement – but we don’t know what it is!

“The realities of life on our planet dictate that continued economic development as we know it cannot be sustained…Sustainable development, therefore is a program of action for local and global economic reform – a program that has yet to be fully defined.” The Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide, published by ICLEI, 1996.

“No one fully understands how or even, if, sustainable development can be achieved; however, there is growing consensus that it must be accomplished at the local level if it is ever to be achieved on a global basis.” The Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide, published by ICLEI, 1996.

Agenda 21 and Private Property

“Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice.” From the report from the 1976 UN’s Habitat I Conference.

“Private land use decisions are often driven by strong economic incentives that result in several ecological and aesthetic consequences…The key to overcoming it is through public policy…” Report from the President’s Council on Sustainable Development, page 112.

“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.” Maurice Strong, Secretary General of the UN’s Earth Summit, 1992.

Reinvention of Government

“We need a new collaborative decision process that leads to better decisions, more rapid change, and more sensible use of human, natural and financial resources in achieving our goals.” Report from the President’s Council on Sustainable Development

“Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI. The Wildlands Project

“We must make this place an insecure and inhospitable place for Capitalists and their projects – we must reclaim the roads and plowed lands, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of tens of millions of acres or presently settled land.” Dave Foreman, Earth First.

What is not sustainable?

Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paved and tarred roads, logging activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.” UN’s Biodiversity Assessment Report.

Hide Agenda 21’s UN roots from the people

“Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy- fixated groups and individuals in our society… This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.” J. Gary Lawrence, advisor to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development.

“False Choice” – How Sustainable Development is Transforming Property Rights *NEW!*

U.S. House of Representatives Approves Participation in Agenda 21

In this October 2, 1992 session, the House of Representatives passed HC 353, a resolution calling for the U.S. to assume a strong leadership role in implementing the sustainable development recommendations of the Rio Earth Summit including Agenda 21. Hear sponsors E. Engel (D-NY), N. Pelosi (D-CA) and W. Bloomfield (R-MI).

A Sustainable Development Q&A

This simplified Q&A answers basic questions about how a seemingly good idea like sustainable development can be bad for private property owners.

Example of How Conservation Easements can be Detrimental to Property Owners

While conservation easements are widely praised as a way to save the environment and keep property rights, in fact, in the long term they often do neither. The article, “Big Meadows, Big Mistake” tells the “rest of the story” on Conservation Easements.

2. Tracing the History of Agenda 21/Sustainable Development

The UN Conference on Human Settlements – Vancouver Plan of Action – 1976

This conference created the baseline for the UN’s viewpoint and future actions regarding individual property rights. See pdf page 2 [document page 28] under, Land – Preamble, for their stance on private property. This position is reflected in policies being enacted across the U.S. today.

Excerpt from The Brundtland Commission Report: “Our Common Future” Defining Sustainable Development

This definition easily identifies UN Agenda 21 related initiatives as it traversed from various reports to the U.S and into our federal agencies. The full report can be found here.

Jeb Brughmann Founds ICLEI to Implement Agenda 21 Worldwide in Local Communities

In this candid 1997 interview, ICLEI founder explains how he was tapped to create an organization to “make sure this agreement [Agenda 21/sustainable development] among nations actually will get implemented…”

The United Nations Rio Declaration from Agenda 21

The Rio Declaration outlines the framework of Agenda 21. It was agreed to by President George H.W. Bush in 1992, thereby establishing official recognition of Agenda 21 by the U.S.. The complete 40 chapter United Nation’s Agenda 21 report can be found here.

Executive Order 12852

President Clinton signed Executive Order 12852 in 1993, which created the President’s Council on Sustainable Development. Here is a copy of that Executive Order.

Institutional Aspects of Sustainable Development in the United States of America

This UN document shows that the President’s Council on Sustainable Development was created for the purpose of implementing Agenda 21 in the U.S..

The Millennium Papers

This article in the Millennium Papers describes how the name Agenda 21 was replaced with terms such as Smart Growth, Growth Management and Comprehensive Planning to prevent Americans from recognizing the connection to the United Nations. See highlighted page 5.

Sustainable Development Challenge Grant Program – Federal Register

These pages from the Federal Register clearly indicate that the EPA’s Challenge Grant Program was created for the purpose of implementing Agenda 21 in the U.S.. See the highlighted section on page 2.

EPA: The Path Forward

This scientific document shows, under the highlighted section,s how the EPA today still follows the basic definitions of sustainable development as defined by the UN’s Brundtland Commission, in their newest decision making process.

HUD-DOT-EPA Partnership for Sustainable Communities

In 2009, these three federal agencies partnered using ‘livability’ principles to gain greater involvement in local planning and regulations. Read the ‘Livability Principles” and the “Partnership Agreement.” Notice the affect the federal government can have on your community. See more below.

HUD NOFA – Sustainable Regional Planning Grants 2010

This HUD Notice of Funds Available clearly shows that along with the grant money come mandates and requirements for social engineering in the form of social equity.

Executive Order 13575

Pres. Obama signed this EO in June of 2011 giving each of the Federal agencies authority over the “food, fiber and energy” for all of rural America or 16% of the US. Control of resources is a key requirement of sustainable development as it enables the governing authority the power to manage their useage more efficiently than individuals and communites.

Executive Order 13602

In March 2012, Pres. Obama signed this EO giving HUD the authority to engage in city, community and regional planning to “augment their vision for stability and economic growth…” This EO insures that “Federal assistance is more efficiently provided and used.” HUD now has the ability to create regulations to enforce that local and regional planning the government feels is beneficial to the fiscal stability of the US.

The Partnership for Sustainable Communities

This partnership is changing the landscape of rural America. Once allowed into your community, the HUD-DOT-EPA partnership defines what qualities your “liveable” locality must include. More transportation choices invariably means more light rail transit and bicycles. The government defines the character, context and needs of each community with token input from citizens. Social enguineering is inherent in what the government calls, “equitable housing, sustainable strategies and value communities.” Most of the plans look appealing in slide presentations, but, once implemented, local citizens are stuck with regulations imposed by the government that offer little future variation and minimal if any opportunity to return to a way of living you may find more desirable. As one planner said, “You will be able to live in a rural area if you want to…but it will cost you.”

Partnership for Sustainable Communities – Top Down Control

Here, in friendly sounding terms, the Secretaries of HUD, DOT and the EPA make it clear the federal government intends to manage your commuunity design, make it livable and environmentally green, all according to their needs and definitions. Each of the projects and grants, though verbally and graphically enticing, precisely echo the Vancouver Plan of Action. The results are exactly as defined in Vancouver in 1976.

EPA – EJ2014 or Environmental Justice 2014

In January of 2012, the EPA changed their decision making process to embrace sustainable development as defined in the UN’s 1987 Brundtland Report. In April 2012, the agency created plans to incorporate civil rights regulations in their environmental policy to establish a basis for environmental justice.

 

3. Legislation Addressing the Threat of Agenda 21/Sustainable Development

RNC Resolution Exposing United Nations Agenda 21 – January 13, 2012

In January, 2012, the Republican National Committee unanimously approved an historic resolution exposing the dangers of United Nations Agenda 21, ICLEI and the loss of private property ownership, single family homes, private car ownership, individual travel choices and privately owned farms under the banner of “sustainable development” and Smart Growth.

For the first time, the leadership of one of the two major American political parties acknowledged that so-called “social justice” is robbing our society and the environment and replacing our sovereignty with a socialist/communist wealth redistribution scheme. Please read this document carefully and share it freely.

Wisconsin Assembly Bill 303

This bill enables the repeal of local comprehensive plans found to tamper with individual’s property rights.

New Hampshire Bill 1634

New Hampshire’s bill prevent the state, counties, cities and towns from contracting with or accepting money from ICLEI, a large non-governmental orgnaization[NGO] implementing Agenda 21 throughout the U.S.

New Hampshire Bill 514

This bill prevents federal agents from inspecting or gathering information on private property wtihout a warrant.

Tennessee Bill HJR 587

This bill rejects the radical policies promoted by United Nation’s Agenda 21 and rejects any grant monies attached to the UN’s program.

Bonner County, ID Property Rights Council

The Property Rights Council provides a committee to review planning documents and agreements prior to acceptance to assure that property owner’s rights are not exploited by planners or governmental agencies. For further information, go here.

Defense of Environment and Property Act of 2012 (S.2122)

The EPA, under the Clean Water Act, expanded its control over citizen’s private property by redefining navigable waters to include certain artificially irrigated areas, artificial lakes and ponds used for irrigation, non-navigable tributaries to navigable waters, wetlands abutting relatively permanent waters and more. This bill defines “navigable” waters as those that are actually “navigable.”

Alabama Protects Private Property Rights from Agenda 21 Intrusions (SB477)

This bill prohibits Alabama and its political subdivisions from adopting environmental and developmental policies that, without due process, infringe or restrirct private property rights of property owners. Further, it prohibits policies that are traceable to “Agenda 21″ as adopted by the United Nations in 1992 at its Conference on Environment and Development.

Florida Bill Protects Private Property Rights

This Florida bill protects all state subdivisions from adopting any developmental policies that, without due process, infringe or restrict the private property rights of the property owner. It specifically mentions any policy recommendations traceable to Agenda 21 as adopted by the UN at the 1992 Conference on Environment and Development. This would include those policies recommended by Non-Governmental Organizations and Federal Agency regulations that are Agenda 21 related.

 

4. Taking Action to Expose Agenda 21/Sustainable Development

What You Can do to Stop Sustainable Development – Agenda 21

This handout provides information and links that will help you get active in stoppng Agenda 21/Sustainable Development in your community.

The Coordination Strategy

The Coordination Strategy can slow or stop planning processes that may endanger individual property rights. Most federal agencies are required by law to coordinate their plans that will impact the local community with local governments. Often this does not happen as most local governmens are not aware of this requirement, or do not know how to implement the process. When local governments assert coordination authority, the federal agencies must respond.

APA’s Agenda 21: Myths and Facts Revisited

Recently, the American Planning Association circulated a fact sheet titled, Agenda 21: Myths and Facts. The APA is a large and highly respected planning organization, that often does exemplary work. But their “fact” sheet is rife with distortions, misconceptions and inaccuracies. This document provides information to respond to the APA’s errors.

APA’s Glossary for the Public

The American Planning Association, rather than address critics’ concerns for private property rights, chose to re-brand their information by creating a new vocabulary. This transparent attempt to confuse the public while making it easier to implement their own chosen plans sidesteps citizens’ genuine concern for individual rights.

 

5. Examples of Agenda 21/Sustainable Development’s Impact on Property Rights

Form-Based Code is the Problem, Not the Solution

Form-based codes are a programmed method for replacing existing zoning regulations with boilerplate zoning and development code models. They make it easier to implement Agenda 21 type plan enforcement. Form-based codes often replace the need for local zoning ordinances and reduce the role of public officials. Once installed, form-based codes become the new laws governing a wide range of activities in your community.

Form Based Code Planning Guide

Here is the introduction to a book describing form-based codes. When promoting this method of codification, promoters often show audiences live PowerPoint presentations of their current community followed by dazzling pictures of what their town can become. Most citizens are so impressed with the stunning design work, they overlook the draconian regulations and potential loss of rights that accompany the plans. Notice the fifth paragraph on page 14 in which Peter Katz, Pres. of the Form-Based Codes Institute, describes how to use the “charette” process to manipulate public responses.

Welcome to Petsche’s world!


The progressives, like Jack Petsche, are fixated on creating a Utopia every place they reside. Unfortunately, as we know, utopias do not exist and  when despite a 100% failure the progressives are consistently trying to find a way to make it work.  Apparently progressives are stuck in a mental state that is divorced from reality. For example creating bike lanes on all the streets so the citizens can bike to work and stop driving those evil SUV’s. Now where did this insane concept come from? Oh, it came from the same place that gave us WW I and WW II Europe; now that makes perfect sense.

European cities were created thousands of years ago many during the formation of the Roman Empire. The streets were laid out to accommodate foot, horse and carriage traffic and were narrow winding paths with multi story building on both sides. Now of course there were larger avenues  but the narrow lanes were very common. So European and all the worlds cities that were settled back then were densely populated communities with a infrastructure appropriate for the time they were created.

American cities started that way but because of the vast open lands the people rejected the dense crowed cities and spread out especially after the automobile  was invented over a hundred years ago. The result was that after WW II large portions of the working class moved into the open lands around the central cities forming “bedroom” communities. To support this thousands of roads were constructed and the Interstate highway system was created to speed up access as well. So the bottom line today is unlike European cities American cities are set up for cars and long commutes that are just not suited for bike and/or scooter traffic world.

So what we have today is a movement that would work in Europe but not in America bike lanes make absolutely no sense here!

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE

Hellish roads, good intentions

Kenmore Boulevard is no longer. It is Kenmore Street or Avenue with traffic down to one lane in each direction, parking spaces dropped into the center and bike lanes at the curb. The lovely boulevard which years ago featured streetcars on the median strip is gone.

Similarly, Canton Road, north of East Market, formerly four lanes of flowing traffic, is now two lanes with a turn lane in the middle and, of course, bike lanes on both sides.

The biggest mess of all is East Exchange westbound from the expressway past the university. Four lanes are now two, parking eliminated and, of course, bike lanes on the school side of the street. Traffic is constantly backed up to Carroll Street. Emergency vehicles get caught in gridlock trying to get to Akron General Cleveland Clinic Hospital.

Merchants must be losing business because of the lack of parking and congestion. To bypass this parking lot, you can go down Buchtel Avenue to the university and get downtown to another destruction project which will have traffic down to two lanes on Main Street and, of course, you guessed it, more bike lanes. Never mind all of the 20- to 30-year-old trees taken down.

These government “look good,” “feel good” changes are not in the best interest of Akron’s drivers. The

money would be better spent paving more of the city’s awful streets, along with painting lines on the expressway and other four-lane streets, Kenmore Boulevard excluded.

 VOICE OF THE PEOPLE

Nightmare on the boulevard

We were glad to see that Kenmore Boulevard was finally repaved. The crews did a great job. Then they put many gallons of white paint designating no-go zones over most of what was repaved. What were they thinking?

The designated parking in the middle of what used to be a much-used traffic lane is simply dumb. Traffic is forced into one lane each way and anyone turning (left or right) holds up that one lane. While adding a bike lane seems to be the thing to do these days, the way it was done is, again, dumb. Look for chaos when it snows.

How are they going to plow when there are cars parked in the middle of the street and how is anyone going to see all those dumb white lines when it snows? Someone’s dream of a bike-friendly boulevard has become a nightmare for anyone wanting to drive there.

Akron Removes Short-Lived Bike Lane Experiment on Exchange

By TIA MYERS-ROCKER  SEP 27, 2018

The City of Akron is closing the newly installed bike lane on East Exchange Street.

Engineers for the city installed the double bike lanes in early August, before University of Akron students returned to campus. The bike lanes are scheduled to be removed October 11.

The Hands on Exchange experiment was an opportunity for the City of Akron to address roadway improvements in the area. They took one lane of traffic out and replaced it with a two-way bike lane. City of Akron Engineering Bureau project manager, Christine Jonke says she met with representatives from the University of Akron to discuss their needs.  Jonke says that Exchange Street is “almost a barrier between the students and the main campus,” so they wanted to bring both sides together.

Initially, the University of Akron responded well to the bike lanes, but the City of Akron wanted to hear from the public.  Walkers and bikers were encouraged to give feedback on the bike lanes using online surveys, website comments, and phone calls.

 

This experiment was not successful but Akron hasn’t given up they are going to try again in 2022 when more federal money can be used in wasteful projects that cannot work, nor make sense!

Were do the progressive’s (Jack Petsche and his crew) get their directions from


The heart of the 21st Century  progressive movement is an offshoot of the old progressive movement started in the early 20th Century over one hundred years ago.  The change from the original goals to the more recent  goals today started with the Kyoto accords and UN agenda 21 in the late 1980’s. The program was promoted as what would be required to bring the third world into the modern word of sustainability. However the real motivations of Agenda 21 were not the third world they were Europe and North America and how to seize absolute power.  The implementation of Agenda 21 was started by President Clinton soon after he took office and the picture of America as envisioned in 2050 is shown below. This map shows where the progressives want to move all the people in the country to — a series of ten or more extremely densely populated mega cities. Imagine 400 million people stuffed into those areas. To govern this monstrosity will require a single party large government modeled after that which exists in China today.

The links below are to three websites that show or explain what the objectives are, and they are all funded by the US Government. The first one is vibrant-2040 and the headquarters is located at the intersection of E 13th St. and Superior avenue.  Its program, which is being implemented today, is to merge the suburbs into the central cities and then merge the central cities in on one large mega city. When it was formed a while back I did attend some meetings to see what was up. The organization is well funded and gets its help from the other two organizations, links following that for vibrant-2040. For now they are focusing on zoning restriction, sidewalks and bike paths.  This is where Petsche and his crew get their direction from.

Vibrant-NEO 2040

The Regional Planing Association

America 2050

If they were to get elected the focus of the city of Brecksville will change from the betterment of the local community (the current method) to a globalist focus comprising of  restricting cars and forcing people to walk or use bikes.  By that I mean not for exercise or pleasure but for every day use like walking to Marc’s in Brecksville from Echo Hills. To facilitate that the Petsche crew will put in sidewalks and bike paths from Echo Hills to the center of Brecksville. Then they will, in concert with the other communities that their friends have already taken over start to restrict the ownership or use of cars.  Given the distance from Echo Hills to Marc’s they may put in local bus lines to help you get there, which would be very nice of them after they take your cars.

This is not going to happen tomorrow but it will happen by 2040 or 2050 if we allow these kinds of radicals to get into power. So if you like Brecksville like it is, be sure to vote the right way and keep the existing very qualified team in place and lead by Mayor Hruby.

On Destroying America (Brecksville)


Petsche and his cohorts are progressives which mean they want to follow President Obama and fundamentally change America (Brecksville) into something other than what it is. There is something fundamentally wrong with this thinking. For example why is just about everybody in the world trying to get in our country if it is the hell hole that the progressive claim it is? And closer to home in Brecksville the survey that was done a few years ago in Brecksville indicated the citizens of Brecksville were overwhelmingly satisfied with the way the city was being run. So why is a major and fundamental change needed in the country and the city of Brecksville?

The answer appears to be personal gain as shown by the corruption in the progressive movement in general and what appears to be a looming corruption in Petsche and by extension his followers and their connections to USA Roofing, inc. and Greenfield Solar Corp.  These two connection are only the ones we know about, how many other do we not know about?

From the Canada Free Press we have On Destroying America

By  —— Bio and ArchivesSeptember 9, 2019

To survive what may be coming, you have to be strong, well anchored, and assured in the midst of craziness and deception everywhere. We are lied to, deceived, and manipulated constantly to believe what isn’t so. Any weakness will declare itself quickly.

Our country is being dismantled, systematically, methodically. It has been going on for a long time, with patience and stealth, since at least the sixties and it is happening from within. Almost everything the Left needs to finish is now in place.

A recent Washington Times op-ed listed a set of conditions that are needed to destroy a nation. Anyone who reads the conditions and compares them with what is now happening and yet disagrees is either not looking or doesn’t want to see. I have added some that I felt were omitted or needed to be included. Some will overlap.

The first condition is to destroy the religion that holds the country together...Christianity. Churches have been decimated by liberal theology…ministers, priests and lay persons preaching their own gospel, counting money instead of souls saved.

The destruction of the nuclear family that produces stable children, wholesale abortion…avowed Communist presidential candidates insisting on exporting abortion around the world, demeaning life, redefining marriage…welfare to a point where the father is no longer needed with whole generations of broken families dependent on the government.

Selling maleness as toxic. They are actively feminizing the male population, making us less able to defend ourselves. They turned the finest military in the world into what was labeled a ‘social experiment’. But, in reality it was not an experiment at all. It was their way to knowingly destroy it.

Our education system has been decimated. Marxist teachers and professors are everywhere. Young people are being bombarded constantly with secular socialist propaganda, teaching the young to be non-judgmental. Accept every form of degeneracy. Children come home from school questioning their grandparent’s values because many of their parents are already on board. They are no longer taught Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Lincoln, Judeo-Christian values. Instead they are taught Malcolm X, Lenin, Mao and the transsexual that reads to them at the local library. Government schools have virtually eliminated parental authority.

Tribalism…divide and conquer

Tribalism…divide and conquer. When Obama became president he set out to divide the races, and so he did. He convinced many minorities that they were being oppressed and the police are their enemy. And it continues.

Immigrate as many people of other cultures as possible, legal or illegal. Dilute the American culture. Make it less acceptable or even a minority.

Make government bigger. Take over health care. Make individual health care dependent on adhering to government policies. Make the hard sell on global warming, or should I now say climate change. Blame every natural catastrophe on it. Give the government what they want…more power. Their science is as bankrupt as their morals.

Disrespect the nation’s symbols. Express contempt for the Constitution. Show disrespect for our national anthem. Burn our flags or raise flags of other nations.

Fill the government with traitors, ruin the great reputations of great institutions such as the FBI, and the CIA, and treat these people as rock stars. And use the media as the cheerleader.

Make everything political…speech, football, food, where you live, what you drive…shame conservatives at every turn

Make everything political...speech, football, food, where you live, what you drive…shame conservatives at every turn. The Bolsheviks were very successful at this game.

Take over high tech, the internet, the news media, entertainment. Control all opposition opinion.

Take control over a major political party. And so they have. Would anyone have thought every Democrat presidential candidate would adhere to or be sympathetic toward socialism? Years ago it was called liberalism to make it more palatable, but now we have ‘graduated’ to full on calling it socialism or democratic socialism. They’re getting more candid. The final step will be the real intention all along…Communism.

Create a new social order and standard of behavior.
 This new standard includes largely the elimination of the freedom of speech. Watch what you say and report those who don’t conform. I can remember several generations back when common sense was common. No longer. Criminals are treated as victims. White people are labeled as oppressors and must apologize for it. Deranged people who need help are ignored, treated as normal, or just doing their thing. And they are everywhere, creating chaos, as designed and expected.

Take away guns, the ability to defend yourself and your family, the most basic of rights. I put this last to point out the three powers that stand in the way of those who would take our country and our freedoms from us…patriots and people of faith, the 2nd Amendment, President Trump.

Again, be strong in your beliefs. There are forces out to destroy this nation, our culture and society. It is like a cancer that is metastasizing. They will succeed, if we let them. They have accomplished much because too many of us have fallen asleep. Liberals taught us to question authority. It is now time to question theirs.

The Jack Petsche Brecksville cabal


The Jack Petsche cabal works under the, a Better Brecksville moniker and that includes Jack Petsche for Mayor, Gretchen Corp Jones, Mike Schumaker, Chis Hannigan and Ann Koepke all for council.   From what I know from reading what is on their websites and what they say when they talk I would say they are very dangerous people. Below are those that want to rule you, don’t be fooled by their smiles!

I have talked about why I say this before but I’ll say it once more. When I went in the army in 1965 after college I was given two branch options for getting my commission when I graduated from Officers Candidate School, OCS. Basically they were the NSA or Special Forces.  Since I like physical challenges as well as mental challenges I became an officer in the Green Berets. So the question is what the hell does that have to do with a better Brecksville in 2019?

Well it’s actually very simple, back then we were in a cold war with the U.S.S.R. and a hot war in Vietnam as the communists were trying to take Vietnam. The Green Berets were the first to go into Vietnam and always had the most dangerous assignments we were the tip of the spear as they say. So what did we study to get prepared beyond the arts of war and it was communism. Now I had an advantage since I had an undergrad in economics and communism is the political means to create a Marxist economics  Utopia. We studied the history of Vietnam learned some of the language and read books like Street without Joy by Bernard Hall published in 1961 and The Centurions by Jean Larteguy and published in 1962  lastly we had the US government Area Handbook for North Vietnam DA Pam No 550-57 published in June 1967. So we were the most prepared to understand what was happening in Vietnam.

Skip forward to the 1990’s when I first saw troubling social changes happening so I read a lot more on Vietnam and politics and updated my economics and wrote a book on what I was seeing called Power Economics for the Next generation in 1994; the subject of which was the country was starting to move in a bad direction — toward socialism, but there was no reason to do so. Seven years later we had 9/11 and I started my research again this time a lot more seriously. This time I read Rules for Radical’s written by Saul Alinsky in 1971 and Prairie Fire written by the Weather Underground in 1974. Read both as they describe exactly what is happening today and if it doesn’t scare the C**** out of you then you must be one of them. And then I wrote another book this time it was more comprehensive and I called it An Essay on Moral Philosophy in Western Civilization written in 2017/2018 and released in January 2019.

This latest book of mine was about the communist takeover of the Democrat party and their goal to turn us into a socialist Utopia. This battle to change the country started when the U.S.S.R. collapsed and the Marxists in our country (progressives) panicked and started their takeover in earnest after the initial start in 1913. In my semi-expert opinion I believe that Jack Petsche, Gretchen Corp Jones, Mike Schumaker, Chis Hannigan and Ann Koepke, albeit at a low level as I do not believe any of them have the mental ability to operate at a high level, are part of the program to change us from a Republic to a single party soviet style country. Of course they must first get rid of the US Constitution. To do that they must destroy history and replace it with distorted stories called propaganda from back in the day or Newspeak from Orwell’s 1984.

From George Orwell …

“Who controls the past controls the future.

Who controls the present controls the past.”

However the a Better Brecksville cabal seem to be operating at the thug level not the sophisticated level that is really required to be successful. By that I mean as an SF officer would have to be capable of as was shown in the book Horse Soldiers and the move 12 Strong of the SF teams that went into Afghanistan and beat the Taliban into submission within a few months. See my review of the move in My Book and Movie reviews. That is what real strategic plan and solid tactical implementation gives you. That operation level is not what these, a Better Brecksville armatures have. However they are well funded (Soros) and the is only a part of a national movement to take over the country in 2020.

From Dave Pristash …

“Who (Universities) controls the past controls the future.

Who (Google, Facebook & Twitter) controls the present controls the past.

Who (Progressives/Marxists) controls the means of communication (Smart Phones) has the means to achieve all their desires.”

 

A Brecksville Council meeting in 2020, Part Two


Last night (September 3, 2019) at a Brecksville City Council meeting we were presented with a sample of what a Petsche administration would be like if he were elected mayor. The subject of the meeting  was a presentation by the city’s law director and one of the council members on some serious ethics violations committed by Jack Petsche when he was running for council in November 2017 and during his first year in that position starting in January 2, 2018.

In Part One on my blog  I showed what a “progressive meeting” is like. Now in Part Two we’re going to look at the corruption that all progressive administrations have. And Jack Petsche has now demonstrated that he would be no exception. Petsche is running to be the mayor of Brecksville and being the “progressive visionary” that he is,  his official campaign slogan “A Better Brecksville” is somewhat strange. I say that because a few years ago a survey was sent to Brecksville citizens asking them to rate the city on various relevant aspects.  Without going into details the results were statistically significant and showed the the city had an over 90% very satisfied rating. In other words, that citizens felt the city had been well run under the current mayor. So what more could a Petsche administration do?

Well it would seem corruption is the answer — watch the following video.

Cleveland Channel 5 News September 3, 2019

Petsche, being an attorney both knows the law and knows how to say the right things to hide what he really did which is as follows. Number one is that his company is USA Roofing, Inc. In the bid to the general contractor for the new jail he listed his company as USA (there are thousands of companies with that name). Further, he was not running for office when he made the bid so it didn’t matter. So was Petsche thinking about running for office and decided to use USA instead of his real name USA Roofing? Then after he won the council seat in a very close elections he was obligated to tell the city about the contract especially when he had to sign an ethics agreement/contract with the city when he took office on January 2, 2018. On that date it is my understanding that the roofing on the new jail had not yet started.

This is the point in time where Petsche gets into trouble because he is an attorney and he just signed a document that clearly states he is NOT ALLOWED TO GAIN BENEFIT FROM WORK DONE FOR THE CITY. If Petsche had been honorable he would have told the city at this point that he was doing the roof on the new jail. That would have ended the issue as the city and Petsche could have worked out some kind of compromise.  Petsche chose not to tell the city for some reason and now no one buys his claim that it was a private contract and not subject to the ethics agreement.

During the meeting last night over 90% of the citizens that were there were not happy with what Petsche did  and although Petsche’s name is still on the ballot for mayor it’s hard to see how he could win in November.

This is not the end of this issue the city clearly has the option to remove him from office, however that could backfire on them in Petsche’s favor and get him sympathy votes in November. The better option may be to wait for the ethics review and if Petsche is indicted that would end his political career. If he isn’t, which is hard to believe, the city can still remove him from office.

In any case this issue is not over. 

Is Jack Petsche the most conflicted candidate to run for elected office in the history of Brecksville?


Jack Petsche an honest business man or something else?

Apparently Mr. Petsche is not very transparent so his claims of honesty in politics are suspect. The issue for the voters is what else is Mr. Petsche hiding from us?

 

 

Jack Petsche, a city council person, has recently decided to run for the position of mayor of Brecksville. However over the past year it has come to the attention of the citizens of Brecksville and the city Law Director David Matty  that Councilman Petsche may have created serious Ethics law violations since taking office. This serious conflict arises from Petsche’s holding senior positions (ownership?) in two companies USA Roofing Inc. and Greenfield Solar Corp. One, this wouldn’t be an issue except for two facts; one USA (USA Roofing) was a major sub-contractor in building the new city jail & that company was a bidder on another large city contract. Two, after being elected to council Petsche attempted to change the city codes on roof top solar panels. And like the roofing issue Petsche did not tell the city council that he was connected with a company that installed solar panels, Greenfield Solar Corp.

These situations were “hidden” from the City Council and thereby created a serious ethics violation which is now being investigated by the State of Ohio. In fact, Petsche has been advised by the Brecksville Law Director to seek legal counsel.

Is this the kind of mayor we want in Brecksville, I think not!

A Brecksville Council meeting in 2020, Part One


Jack Petsche and his “friends” are attempting a political take over of the city of Brecksville. Why he might be doing this is somewhat strange as Brecksville is one of, if not the best , run cities in Northeast Ohio. But lets assume Petsche has a better vision for Brecksville and if that is so there are only two versions possible. The first is the progressive version and the second is a grab for personal power. We already know that Brecksville is well run so could either of the two Petsche visions make it better for

Assuming Petsche is the “progressive visionary” that he claims he is than his slogan “A Better Brecksville” would be a progressive Utopia for Brecksville. Unfortunately a Utopia is not possible since humans are not perfect and  so we are not capable of creating a Utopia as thousands of years of political history have shown us.  Granted we are talking about a city and not a sovereign nation but all attempts at a Utopia or a perfect democracy have turned ugly a short time after they are started.  The following U tube shows how a “woke” meeting might be held in Brecksville. I’ts very clear that not much good could come out of situations like this where there is no order.

Unfortunately, what always does happen is that some faction of the group takes over with an iron fist and the peoples views are suppressed to the will of those in power. I don’t think anyone in Brecksville would like living in a city run like Venezuela.

In part two of Petsche’s vision for Brecksville  we will look at the other possibility of a Petsche regime.

Jack Petsche – Miss-leads Brecksville Residents


Below is a link to a U tube video of Jack Petsche at a meeting (I think it was in Shaker Hts. in 2015) talking about how his group disguised the Move to Amend initiative in Brecksville as Democracy Day.  It’s alarming that a Move to Amend leader actually brags on camera about deceiving fellow citizens – and he’s running for Brecksville City Council.

Voters should know that he made these statements, as heard on the video:

“We didn’t use the phrase Move to Amend.   We didn’t spell it out – we used shorthand but you all know what we are here for”. 

“If we’d just left it at we want the city to say we support a Constitutional Amendment to say corporations are not people and money is not equal to speech we would have failed”.

This short video shows Jack Petsche explaining to a group of Cuyahoga County residents how to trick the state into allowing citizens petitions into the voting system in a targeted city, in this case Brecksville, Ohio where I live. The event that Petsche is talking about is the local election on November 2, 2015 where Petsche was trying to find a way to get support to propose in Brecksville an amendment to the US Constitution. What he found was that he couldn’t actually say that so he found a way to create a system in Brecksville to do it by tricking the citizens and the Board of Elections by calling his initiative Democracy Day.  I was involved in that election promoting candidates that I felt would benefit the city and outside  one of the poling places I ran into Petsche who was pushing his Democracy day imitative.   I had a discussion with him that evening and also watched him interface with residence coming in to vote. I found that his spoken words did not match what he was actually trying to do — which was to change the US Constitution.

Petsche like most progressive politicians and activists follow the principles first documented in Saul Alinsky’s “Rule’s for Radicals.” Some of which are: never tell the truth, hide your real agenda, and demonize your opponent at ever chance you get.  In other words use deceit and misdirection to get what you want!

When I was in the Army as a Green Beret office in the mid 1960’s we studied Marxism since it was our primary mission to combat the expansion of the U.S.S.R., this was called the Cold War. I can tell you now that for all practical purposes the Old Democrat party has been taken over over those that believe in  Marxists  principles which they now hid as Socialism. Socialism is a word used with the connotation of a system that leads to a Utopia.  Since humans are not perfect we can not develop  a system that is perfect and all attempts of creating a Utopia have resulted in tens of millions of people dying in that attempt. We do not want to go down road ever!

 

The Move To Amend Website where Jack Petsche gets his help from


The Move to Amend (MTA) movement was started in California by hard core progressives and it would seem it either came out of or was part of the occupy movement.. I would not be surprised if they were not also associated with directly or indirectly with Back Life’s Mater BLM  movement.  All of these and other like groups are designed to destroy social order o that that what a different kind of America and have their way. There is no good associated in any of these groups as they all have one one goal which is to create a socialist state with no limiting constitution. The following links are to various section on the MTA website.

The goal of this movement is a socialist government which may start out with only a few changes but as we saw in Venezuela it turns bad quickly and if we allow that to take hold in America our grand kids will be living in a Marxist dictatorship my mid century.
