“Strong Cities” or Global Police?

Strong Cities Network

A UN threat to American sovereignty and individual rights

130402unitednationslogoAccording to Canada Free Press, the Strong Cities Network is only one of the latest attempts by the United Nations to take over the West, beginning at the municipal level of government. First it was Agenda 21, a 1992 “Earth Summit” plan for sustainable development. Next came Agenda 2030, a new fifteen-year plan for “Transforming Our World…,” according to United Nations specifications. Most recently, the Strong Cities network was launched by Attorney General Loretta Lynch last month at United Nations headquarters. It is described as “a global network of local authorities united in building resilience to prevent violent extremism.” However, some of us see it more as a precursor to a global police force, whose searchlights send believers scrambling in the middle of night during the Great Tribulation.

 

Just what is this latest attempt to “build social cohesion and resilience to violent extremism”? A recent New York Times editorial asserts that the real terror threat comes from domestic groups like militias, neo-Nazis and “sovereign citizens.” John Whitehead, of the Rutherford Institute, sees this approach of countering domestic terrorism by globalizing local police as a process which turns every American citizen into a potential lawbreaker. In other words, if you do anything which could be been seen as opposing the government, you could be labeled an extremist criminal suspect.

 

Pamela A. Geller, President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, criticized the Strong Cities Network because it lays the groundwork for federal and international interference down to the local level. “This amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws,” she writes for Breitbart.com, “up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself – without any consultation of Congress at all.”
