In view of Perry’s current stance on AGW, is it a ruse to get things like this in the back door?


Rick Perry tied to Agenda 21, globalist policies | August Forecast & Review  16 August 2011- By Terri Hall

Rick Perry may be good at invoking states rights and prop­erty rights, while dis­avowing ?for­eign cred­i­tors,? but his actions as Texas? longest serving gov­ernor tell a dif­ferent story. Public pri­vate part­ner­ships (or P3s) are part and parcel of the United Nations? Agenda 21. Two of the pur­poses of Agenda 21 are to abolish pri­vate prop­erty and restrict mobility and P3s act as the vehicle to do it. Perry made P3s a cen­ter­piece of his trans­porta­tion policy since he stepped in as governor.

While Perry dis­tracted Texans and tea partiers with ?emer­gency? res­o­lu­tions on state sov­er­eignty during the 82nd leg­is­la­ture, P3s spread from trans­porta­tion projects to vir­tu­ally every other type of public infra­struc­ture in a bill, SB 1048, passed by the Texas leg­is­la­ture which he signed into law June 17.

Now all public infra­struc­ture, including public build­ings, schools, nursing homes, ports, mass transit, etc. can be auctioned-off to pri­vate inter­ests in long-term sweet­heart deals with tax­payer sub­si­dies and profit guar­an­tees using P3s.

P3s give a pri­vate cor­po­ra­tion the power to tax the public, whether through charging tolls or other so-called ?user fees,? to access their own public infra­struc­ture, and, per­haps more insid­ious,  allowing well-connected pri­vate enti­ties to profit from con­ces­sions on land taken through emi­nent domain.

Perry?s admin­is­tra­tion of P3s is like his admin­is­tra­tion of his Emerging Tech­nology Fund that?s been highly crit­i­cized for steering tax­payer money to Perry?s cam­paign donors ? a case in point, Dan Shelley.

Shelley worked for Cintra, who had its sites set on devel­oping the Trans Texas Cor­ridor. Shelley lands a job as Perry?s aide, steers the $7 bil­lion cor­ridor P3 to his former employer Cintra, then goes back to work for Cintra. That?s how Perry does busi­ness???pay to play.

A recent Wash­ington Post article doc­u­ments Perry?s work to get Chi­nese government-owned telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany Huawei, to base its U.S. oper­a­tions in Texas, a com­pany that the U.S. gov­ern­ment has deemed a threat to national secu­rity noting that ?three times since 2008, a U.S. gov­ern­ment secu­rity panel has blocked Huawei from acquiring or part­nering with U.S. com­pa­nies because of con­cerns that secrets could be leaked to China?s gov­ern­ment or military.?

Perry?s cozi­ness with the Chi­nese and for­eign investors exposes a huge weak­ness in his right flank ? illegal immi­gra­tion and open bor­ders. The Trans Texas Cor­ridor has been linked to the global plan to eco­nom­i­cally inte­grate North America, with the even­tual goal of a common secu­rity perimeter mod­eled after the Euro­pean Union. Perry ush­ered in in-state tuition for ille­gals and has long been an obstacle to immi­gra­tion reform or any Arizona-style immi­gra­tion law.

Perry?s record paints a much dif­ferent pic­ture than what can­di­date Perry would have us believe? ? that he?s a states rights, con­sti­tu­tion­ally lim­ited gov­ern­ment con­ser­v­a­tive that?s respon­sible for the ?Texas mir­acle.? In reality, he?s more like an Agenda 21 glob­alist willing to sell America to the highest bidder.
