When Barack Obama first emerged as a presidential contender, conservatives derided him for his lackluster resume. They made fun of his experience as a “community organizer”. Yet to all those mysterious men (and a few women) who have spent decades working in the shadows crafting policies that have now emerged into the light and become global mandates, (i.e. “Agenda 21”), the title of “community organizer” carries a prestigious meaning. There is no higher compliment among the world’s elite than to be known as a “community organizer” or “change agent”.
Speaking before the General Assembly of the United Nations earlier today (Sept. 24, 2013), President Obama once again paid homage to the collectivist ideals of the U.N., opening his remarks by citing our “common prosperity”. In previous speeches Obama has used many of the same communal terms, referring to mankind’s “common security”, “common destiny” or our “common future”. Obama closed today’s remarks by declaring that, “Time and again, nations and people have shown our capacity to change — to live up to humanity’s highest ideals, to choose our better history.”

So where did the phrase “our common destiny” originate and what does it really mean? Is Obama speaking the truth when he claims that we all share a common future?
For purposes of this discussion I will limit my references to two books that promoted several of the key concepts for what later became known as the Agenda for the 21st Century, or “Agenda 21” . The first book is entitled, Our Common Future: The World Commission on Environment and Development commissioned at the request of the United Nations and published in 1987 by Oxford University Press. That book was quickly followed by a similar volume called, Beyond Interdependence: The Meshing of the World’s Economy and the Earth’s Ecology, a Trilateral Commission book also published by Oxford University Press. This second book firmly establishes the idea that “sustainability” must become the new earth religion guiding mankind’s future. David Rockefeller (founder of the Trilateral Commission) wrote the forward, and that old dragon himself, Maurice Strong, wrote the introduction as he prepared for the public unveiling of Agenda 21 at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio.
In the introduction to Beyond Interdependence, Strong claimed that 2012 was a drop dead date for full implementation of Agenda 21. He wrote that in the event the world failed to fully adopt sustainable development by that date, the nations of the world would face some type of “crisis” (real or manufactured) that would ultimately force compliance. [Note: The U.N. Millennium Development Goal #7 measures progress towards Agenda 21 “Environmental Sustainability”. The deadline to meet all MDG’s has been extended to the end of 2015].
A few years later, in 1994, David Rockefeller reminded a gathering of global billionaires at the United Nations Business Council that, “This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long- We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”
David Rockefeller , (if he’s still alive), would be 98 years old. Maurice Strong, (age 84), has been living in Beijing since 2005, and serves as that government’s top advisor on sustainability and the environment.
Obama has been using the same communal language as these two aged globalists for the past five years. While visiting Jakarta in 2010, (NOTE: Indonesia is the most populous Muslim nation on earth), Obama declared that, “our future security and prosperity is shared”. Obama also said, “I believe that the history of both America and Indonesia gives us hope. It’s a story written into our national mottos. E pluribus unum – out of many, one. Bhinneka Tunggal Ika – unity in diversity.”
Obama concluded his blatantly theosophical remarks thus:
“Ancient traditions endure, even as a rising power is on the move… That spark of the divine lies within each of us. We cannot give in to doubt or cynicism or despair… unity is more powerful than division; and that the people of this world can live together in peace. May our two nations work together, with faith and determination, to share these truths with all mankind.”
What “ancient power” was Obama referring to? What “divine spark”? And why did he use the word “lies” instead of “lives”? In this same speech, Obama also referred to his visit to the Istiqlal Mosque earlier in the day. However, in all this wonderful talk about unity and diversity, the President failed to mention that on the main wall of the mosque is a large metalwork of Arabic calligraphy spelling the name “Allah” on the right side, and “Mohamed” on the left side. In 2008, (the year Obama was first elected), in the center area between the metalwork was a large multi-colored banner with Surah Thaha 1429 written on it. [See comment section for more details.]
Surah 1429 is from the 14th chapter of the Koran, called “Abraham”. It is one of several verses that Muslims have traditionally used in waging a war of terror against anyone who stands in the way of the spread of Islam, or Islamic jihad. It is a verse used to justify the murder of infidels, often cited just before a non-believer is beheaded. Translated into English, Surah 1429 reads, “And they shall all burn in hell!”
It occurred to me that the devil would love to convince us that we really do all share a common destiny. But while the elite politicians of the world are busy trying to unite nations and people around some shared future collectivist model, it is clear that God has other ideas.
Jesus came to redeem mankind out of this messy sin-riddled death-dealing world. He is the Great Divider, the one who separates the wheat from the chaff. We should thank God that we do NOT all share a common destiny. There are really two distinct paths (and only two paths) we can go by. One is the wide path that leads to destruction, the other is the narrow path, the Jesus way, leading to everlasting life and wholeness.
The fires of Hell will certainly become the common destiny for many, but for others there is another destiny.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16 KJV

“But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!”
Thanks Steve for this important essay.
One of the things that struck me about 0’s speech at the UN was his lying-lack of humility; that arrogance will find its way into our lives for the rest of our lives.
Mo Strong is pushing REWILDING in China where they have been busy building 10 to 20 new cities each year. China plans to move 400 million people out of rural areas in the next decade. Currently most of these new “eco-friendly sustainable” cities are uninhabited.
“The Chinese government has decided to build new social housing of 36 million units during the period from 2010 to 2015.” [Page 19 – The State of China’s Cities 2012-2013]
“By the end of 2011, an accumulation of 3.10 million persons had their household registration transferred from rural to urban status with an average of 6,299 person each day.” [Page 13]
“By the end of 2010, per capita floor space for urban residents in China increased to 31.6 square meters in 2010 from 18.7 square meters in 1998.” [Page 15]
Slick Mo takes time while riding around Beijing in the back of his limo to answer some soft ball questions about “the agenda”. (Too bad these brainwashed students didn’t ask him why he had to flee N. America!)
Here’s a fairly decent synopsis of Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. Talks a bit about the Earth Charter at the end. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIRkyopumso
I MADE A CORRECTION TO MY ORIGINAL POST (change is in red font)- The photo of Istiqlal mosque that shows the centerpiece banner with Surah 1429 was taken in 2008, (you can still view said photo on the Wikipedia entry for Istiqlal Mosque). When the Obama’s visited Istiqlal in 2010, that particular banner was not visible, at least in the official photos released by the White House.
Steve very interesting topic on your latest blog article.
I was looking back at transcripts of key speeches President Obama has delivered both before and after he was elected. I was reminded within his January 20, 2009 Inaugural address he promised,
“Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.”
Yes, someone has certainly been hard at work re-making America…
Obama’s 2007 pre-election “The Time Has Come For Universal Health Care” speech was of particular interest as we watch the near frantic efforts taking place in Washington DC. As I read this speech I became aware of a number of things he said then, that in hindsight shed light on what lies ahead. Included in his sales pitch, he spoke of the money that will be saved by having medical records computerized – the Salt Lake Tribune reported yesterday the National Security’s Data Center may already, without fanfare or balloons, be already up and running.
Considering three of the Millennium Development Goals are related to health, with the 2015 deadline for countries to be in compliance nearly here, I’m thinking the timing of implementing ObamaCare has been carefully planned.

AGENDA 21 GROUND RULES –
Excerpts from “The Mind-Changing Dialectic Process”
Training the masses to think collectively and serve a Greater Whole
by Berit Kjos
“The world’s path to success is changing fast. In the new 21st-century institution – be it a school, church, corporation or government — hard work and dedication won’t suffice. Getting ahead in the global community will mean compromise, conformity, group thinking and submission to the ground rules of the consensus process.”
“The challenge to humanity is to adopt new ways of thinking, new ways of acting, new ways of organizing itself in society, in short, new ways of living.” Our Creative Diversity, UNESCO.
“’How do we get a critical mass of people doing things differently? Through the sharing of generative ideas, ideas that can change how people think and act….What we as a planet need in order to transform how our large systems work is a network of people spreading ideas of interdependency and sustainability.” Peter Senge.
“Changing our organizations to change the world”
“…absolute behavior control is imminent…. The critical point of behavior control, in effect, is sneaking up on mankind without his self-conscious realization that a crisis is at hand. Man will… never self-consciously know that it has happened.” Raymond Houghton, To Nurture Humaneness, ASCD (curriculum arm of the NEA), 1970.
“Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”
Surprise, the UN get the Nobel Peace price!
Back in the day when Billy-boy Clinton bombed the day-lights out of Yugoslavia, Russia rattle it sabers, and when Bushwhacker W. threaten an invasion of Iraq, Russia rattled its sabers again, and when Russia is brushed away so easily what can anyone in the world do to stem the tide?
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Now that time has revealed some of the lies, it’s clear that the intent of Obamacare wasn’t to add 15 million uninsured, but the figure yesterday is now 50 million, because it has become an embarrassment with over 50 million now having lost their health insurance and only 300,000 have gained it, but that was the point all along, and I do believe that by extrapolation that the intent is global! Strange how the population won’t remember voices in the wilderness like yours Steve!
