Video of Sen. Chip Rogers' Agenda 21 Meeting Surfaces

State Senator Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) held a meeting in October for lawmakers to hear an overview of the Agenda 21 initiative.

A video has surfaced of Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) hosting a presentation on Agenda 21.

Better Georgia, a progressive nonprofit organization, has released a recording of a public meeting it says Rogers hosted in October with other state senate leaders. The video features a presentation by Field Searcy, who gives an overview of Agenda 21 to the lawmakers.

Agenda 21, a United Nations comprehensive plan for sustainable development, has been coined by some conservatives as a plan by the government to overtake private property through zoning and detailed land-use ordinances passed by governing bodies.

Along with Sen. Rogers, Cherokee County's newest senator, Republican Barry Loudermilk of Cassville was also in attendance. Searcy also warned against "regional governance" and public private partnerships as methods of carrying out Agenda 21.

The video goes on for roughly 54 minutes before its recorder, Seth C. Clark, is asked to stop the filming. 

To back up his theory, Searcy also showed a short clip of political consultant Dick Morris musing on his assertion that President Barack Obama has declared war on the suburbs. Morris claims President Obama will force suburban tax dollars to fund inner city projects and coerce people to eventually move into urban areas.

It also lists the public-private partnership proposal to fund toll lanes on Interstates 75 and 575 and the failed T-SPLOST initiative as examples of ways governmental entities and regional commissions are implementing portions of Agenda 21 across the state.

The video also singles out the Atlanta Regional Commission and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce as backers of Agenda 21.

As an example at the local level, Searcy also refers to the Ball Ground Recycling deal and the company's subsequent failure as "another example of a PPP (public-private partnership) that has gone sour."  

"We are trying to engage citizens to be aware of this and we need your help also to protect citizens from getting involved in this kind of thing," he later told he lawmakers. 

Patch has reached out to Rogers for his response, but the senator has not responded yet.

There is an old saying "I may be paranoid, but it doesn't mean I'm not being followed". I would much rather have a spirited debate now about the pro's and con's of Agenda 21, than be reflected some day in the near future about how this all happened. Education and involvement by all citizens really does help keep ambitious governments and organizations in check. Just my thoughts - could be wrong (but I doubt it). Doug

Late breaking news this afternoon revealed Chip Rogers' refusal to take off his tin foil hat in the Capitol led to his resignation. Sources also say despite his attempt to deflect attention away from his fascination with Agenda 21 by citing "more time with his family," those with any intelligence at all realized Chip's days were numbered as he became more goofy over time. Noted neurologists have revealed it is possible to avoid the calamitous influence of Agenda 21 by employing aluminum foil. Sources advise the following: proceed to the kitchen drawer where you keep the aluminum foil; tear a large piece of foil off the roll; fold it three times in a triangular-shape; then separate one of the folds and put it on your head. These steps should leave you with a pointy hat that will protect you from solar flares, radiation, electromagnetic energy, alien thought manipulation or anything else your paranoid, over-sensitive mind can conger up.

Chip Rogers has resigned from the Georgia Legislature for a job at GPB...yes, I said GPB, as a liason between business and education. Isn't that a principle of Agenda 21...public/private enterprises?? Guess he took off his aluminum foil hat!
