Governor Gianforte is in the news quite a bit lately so we figured it was timely to remind everyone exactly the types of maneuvers our governor makes. Please read the following (opinion editorial closely). It is in fact full of FACTS.
This article is a reprint from last April which was submitted to Montana 1st News by Lauralee O’Neil.
Why is Greg Gianforte Supporting UN Agenda 21?
OPINION EDITORIAL, by Lauralee O’Neil, April 21, 2023
“I have long been aware of the Agenda 21/Agenda 2030 and the United Nations (UN) desire to create global governance with control over all land, all natural resources and all populations. The UN, (together with the World Economic Forum), will implement their agenda through the use regulations and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Anyone who has been following recent events can see this New World Order advancing at warp speed to move us all into ‘Sustainable’ and ‘Smart’ 15-minute cities, each of us with a digital ID, through implementation of Agenda 21/2030.
Thus, when I recently read that Montana Governor Greg Gianforte would be hosting the 2023 Western Prosperity Roundtable (Western Governors’ Association) in Bozeman this coming May 17-18, stating that it will focus on strengthening community resources and ensuring “smart and sustainable” development to effectively manage the growing West, I just had to look deeper.
When I took a hard look at the 2023 Western Prosperity Roundtable Agenda I found that it reeks of Agenda 21!
Roundtable 1: Seeking Community Childcare Solutions
Access to affordable childcare is critical to support a robust and equitable workforce. This panel will explore solutions to providing childcare and the outcomes that these resources have had on their communities. [Note: equitable is an Agenda 21/30 buzzword.]
Roundtable 2: Telehealth – From Crisis Response to Mainstream Care
Rural communities commonly lack access to health care services, and telehealth emerged as a key tool to address this issue during the COVID-19 pandemic with the loosening of federal regulations. This panel will discuss how telehealth increases access to health care services to rural and underserved communities and needed federal action to ensure continued innovation and expansion in this space past the end of the public health emergency.
Roundtable 3: Launching Local Careers
As communities grow, so does the need for a homegrown workforce. States are modernizing educational offerings to broaden access for students, bridge the rural-urban devide, and meet the labor market demand. Panelists will highlight models for meeting this challenge and discuss opportunities for further innovation.
Roundtable 4: Preparing communities for Federal Land Management Funds
Capacity remains a significant challenge in western communities as they prepare for historic levels of federal funding and 2023 Farm Bill reauthorization. Forest and rangeland management, which is inherently place based, requires a localized workforce and the infrastructure to support it. This panel will explore efforts to build capacity and develop the workforce for forest and rangeland management and highlight gaps that still exist. [Note: infrastructure is also an Agenda 21/30 buzzword meaning infrastructure for everything digital – like facial recognition, digital ID and 5G!]
Roundtable 5: State Strategies for Housing Development
The west has experiences extraordinary growth in recent years, causing housing shortages in communities large and small. This panel will discuss how states can address shortages by engaging smart and sustainable development strategies and working with communities to increase access to housing for all. [Note: you guessed it – more buzzwords.]
Roundtable 6: Rebuilding for Post-Disaster Resilience
Wildfires, floods, and other natural disasters are devastating communities and creating real and persistent effects on the lives of western citizens. This panel will focus on how to rebuild better [build back better?] after disasters to promote resilience and how agencies can improve federal funding for these efforts, particularly in the wildland-urban interface. [Note: another buzzword – resilience.]
Next I took a dive into Governor Gianforte and discovered his deep ties to, and love for big tech.
As a software engineer with a Masters in Computer Science, he was co-founder of Brightwork Development, Inc., a developer of management software for the banking industry. And, he and his wife Susan co-founded RightNow Technologies, and later sold it to Oracle for $1.9 billion in 2012. According to Wikipedia, “Part of Gianforte’s strategy was to leverage the internet as a means to overcome geographic barriers to building a globalized business. Right Now Technologies had contracts with federal agencies, including handling all of the online search queries for the Social Security Administration and Medicare websites.” Interestingly, “Future U.S. Senator Steve Daines was among its executives.” [Bolding mine]
Gianforte was also the founding board chair of the Montana High Tech Business Alliance.
Take a look at some of their members below:
All of the above gave me chills, telling me that our dear Montana Governor is on board with Agenda 21/2030 big-time!
And so I say to you, Governor Gianforte, at its core, Agenda 21/Agenda 2030 is about CONTROL.
It seeks to control the air by regulation of carbon emissions, the ground by “sustainable development” and the sea through environmental regulations.
Officially stated, Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, governments, and major groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment. Because being human will always have an impact on the environment.
When you boil it down, there are nine basic tenets of agenda 21.
1. Move citizens off private land and into urban housing (“Smart Cities”).
2. Create vast wilderness spaces inhabited by large carnivores.
3. Eliminate cars and create “walkable” cities (“Smart Cities”).
4. Support chosen private businesses and stakeholders with public funds for “sustainable development.”
5. Make policy decisions that favor the ‘greater good’ over the individual.
6. Drastically reduce the use of power, water, and anything else that creates so-called “carbon pollution.”
7. Use bureaucracies to make sweeping decisions and regulations outside of democratic processes.
8. Increase taxes, fees and regulations.
9. Implement policies meant to incentivize a reduced population.
What will this mean for us? NO more camping holidays by the river, NO more trips to Glacier, NO more choosing which doctor you want, NO more school choice. ALL your money, shopping, travel, entertainment, daily activities and carbon footprint will be tracked and monitored by ‘Smart City’ infrastructure connected to your digital ID. If you exceed any regulations you will be denied access to everyday activities.
Does this sound like the Montana you know?
Does this sound like the future you want for you and your family?
WERE YOU CONSULTED? DID YOU SIGN UP FOR THIS?
Governor Gianforte, ‘We the People’ DO NOT want Agenda 21/Agenda 2030 in Montana!”
