DOT Targets Farm Tractors

I previously wrote about how Every Homestead Needs a Tractor. But this staple on the American homestead is under attack. America should be very alarmed. Our rights and livelihoods are being smoothly taken from us from right under our noses. Many of these rights reducing actions are being taken with the help of distractions such as Weinergate. Consider the new White House Rural Council which rings with the United Nations Agenda 21. For several weeks all that was on the news, even Fox News, was Weinergate. There were no other news stories and no mention of what sneaky things our president was doing.

Mike Opelka reports on The Blaze website, "Agenda 21 is a two-decade old, grand plan for global ’Sustainable Development,’ brought to you from the United Nations. George H.W. Bush (and 177 other world leaders) agreed to it back in 1992, and in 1995, Bill Clinton signed Executive Order #12858, creating a Presidential Council on ‘Sustainable Development.’ This effectively pushed the UN plan into America’s large, churning government machine without the need for any review or discussion by Congress or the American people.

‘Sustainable Development’ sounds like a nice idea, right? It sounds nice, until you scratch the surface and find that Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development are really cloaked plans to impose the tenets of Social Justice/Socialism on the world.

At risk from Agenda 21;

Private Property ownership
Single-Family homes
Private car ownership and individual travel choices
Privately owned farms

The Agenda 21 plan openly targets private property. For over thirty-five years the UN has made their stance very clear on the issue of individuals owning land;

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 and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole."

Back in June in the midst of Weinergate when no one was paying attention (and the liberal media was deliberately not focusing attention on this), Obama signed E.O. 13575 which created the "White House Rural Council." Like I want the White House involved with anything rural. They government is already confiscating public lands at an alarming rate. Section One of 13575 states:

Section 1. Policy. Sixteen percent of the American population lives in rural counties. Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead. These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation. Though rural communities face numerous challenges, they also present enormous economic potential. The Federal Government has an important role to play in order to expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands. Emphasis is mine.

I don't want the govt to expand access! I don't want the govt to take even more control! Agenda 21 doesn't want private land ownership where you can farm or do with it what you want. To start this off, there is a DOTproposal that all farm tractors and implements be considered commercial motor vehicles. Included in this ludicrous proposal is that everyone who operates farm equipment be licensed with a Commercial Driver's License (CDL)! So, you, your spouse, your 15 year old son or daughter, or the neighbor kid down the street from you will need to pass a class and pay a fee to get a CDL. But wait! Depending on which state you live in, you have to be anywhere from age 18-21 to even apply for a CDL. You may even need training from a truck driving school (that you have to pay for). Then you have to pass a written test and driving test to get your CDL just so you can drive your tractor on your property or on the roadway. It is more and more government control. Next, the govt will want to require you to pass a test, pay a fee, insure and license your 4-wheeler that you use on your property. It is all about losing your freedoms. Losing your rights. Losing your pride. Losing your property. Losing your right to do anything on your property without all the govt licenses, fees, regulations etc, etc.

We are being played. We are being fee'd and regulated to death. The govt uses such nice sounding labels such as "sustainable development." They are smooth and slick. The govt is like a creeping parasite. And what I don't understand is why the American public doesn't understand. Don't they get what is happening? There is so much corruption that there is no one to go to for help. All the good guys are being pushed out, dismissed, done away with. They get in the way of the political agenda. The agenda is complete control of our lives. How many farmers and people will this proposal severely limit or put out of business?


  1. What I find interesting is, I'm not surprised when I read this kind of stuff. I mean, what else do we expect from the UN and the 'rulers' of our nation.
    Just live prepared.

  2. Stephen, You're right. I know it's not really surprising that this kind of unilateral decision making is coming from our corrupt, socialist bent govt. But it is infuriating that they completely disregard the constitution and the will of the people, making up the rules to their game as they go along, they manipulate at will. Their goal of total suppression and political power is happening with increasing speed.

  3. The Obama EO# was correct but when you look up the Clinton EO#, the signed pdf copy of the order does not say anything remotely related to the subject of sustainability or rural or regulation or anything. It is strictly a general budget document that doesn't get specific.


Your thoughts are welcome!
