Richard Rothschild Battles Local Agenda 21

By Cassandra Anderson
July 23. 2012

Richard Rothschild was the first county commissioner to officially oppose the United Nations' International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), also known as Local Governments for Sustainability.  In fact, Mr. Rothschild won the November 2010 election in Carroll County, Maryland based on his opposition to ICLEI, which is the local UN Agenda 21 Sustainable Development action plan that attacks property and Constitutional rights.

Find out why Rothschild is opposed to Agenda 21 and ICLEI:


Commissioner Rothschild's most profound observations since taking office have been that the federal and state governments use coercive grant money to expand their power beyond Constitutional limits and that all of the processes of government are geared toward spending money, which leads to budgets that spin out of control.

Carroll County is a rural area that is under threat of urbanization, mixed-use buildings (compact apartment-like housing also called "stack 'em and pack 'em" units) and social engineering. 

Mr. Rothschild is devoted to protecting Carroll County's citizens' Constitutional rights.  He has encountered forceful opposition in his pursuit of upholding the Constitution and respect for property rights from the phony environmentalist policies of the US government and the State of Maryland.

However, he has been able to make some significant changes in Carroll County's Municipal Master Plan, the foundation for development, that include steering his county away from mixed use development and abolishing certain socialist language like "social equity".

While Carroll County planning and zoning officials have been cooperative with Commissioner Rothschild, he has been restrained in fully protecting citizens' rights because of federal laws, mostly handed down by the EPA, and state laws that attack property rights.  The State of Maryland encroaches on local government jurisdiction through covert zoning and building regulations.

An example of this is a new Maryland state regulation that prohibits building anything within 100 feet of a stream.  So, if a landowner wants to build a a home or other structure on his or her land, the parcel better be big enough to accommodate the state's new regulation or they are plain out of luck.  Imagine the effect of down-zoning on property value!

The good news is that people are waking up to the rotten UN Agenda 21 Sustainable Development plot.  Alabama is the first state to officially ban Agenda 21!  Governor Bentley reluctantly signed the resolution under extreme pressure from activists.

Several other states are in the process of considering and/or passing resolutions against Agenda 21.

Many local governments have rejected ICLEI and others have silently refused to renew the program contract (click here for the full list).

Additionally, a number of Republican groups are actively fighting Agenda 21 (click here for list).


Alabama proved that efforts by activists can make all the difference.

Commissioner Rothschild recommends spending time to go through your Municipal Master Plan planning and zoning regulations to weed out the ones that are strangling citizens' rights (especially landowners).  Other activists have been successful and taken action by pressuring lawmakers to protect their rights and their property.

Get rid of the Tavistock Institute and the Bank of International Settlements, while you're at it!

These represent the most shameful manmade institutions ever created. Corruption abounds.

Good job! Tell me, is your state affiliated with NACo, National Association of Counties? Here in MT we have MACo, Montana Assoc of Counties. They find counties with week commissioners and brainwash them into accepting, incrementally, the Agenda 21 blue print. Coat each pill with grants so the county can afford the "visions" that they think they need and want.

And he is very correct about the idead of "democracy"---God given rights that no man/gov't can trample upon or change. This man understands the dangers of the tyrannies of democracy.

How ironic that a Rothschild pretends to be working against Agenda 21. The Rothschilds are among the behind-the-scenes string-pullers who make national governments dance to their tune, and their tune is global domination, totalitarian rule and population decimation. Look long and carefully at what this Rothschild is actually DOING, then measure what he's SAYING, and only then consider spreading his message and giving him more power. Notice that he got himself elected by pretending to oppose Agenda 21. By posing as the opponent of his family's plans, he got more power for himself and his family. Think people, think!

1. Rothschild is a common surname and the vast majority of people with that name have zero relationship to the banking family.

2. If you google "Rothschild Maryland" you will get 4.47 million results, which shows that there is a large population of people there with that surname.

3. Richard Rothschild said that he is not related to the banking family.

4. Richard Rothschild is actually DOING something by removing pro-Agenda 21 policies from the Master Plan.

An un-related Rothschild speaking truth and taking action in Maryland. We need more leaders like this. We need to understand what this man is saying about our rights and what he is doing to protect his constituents. You will not see this on any of the mainstream left/right sources.

In Vista, CA, the vista Tea Party Patriots went to many planning commission meetings and at one of them they voted iclei down. Even though they said it was for budgetary reasons, we made a impact. We are hoping Escondido, CA will be next.

Great speech on "democracy" and "unalienable rights"!

A commendable and principled stand by Mr R. My real misgiving is that we always risk disconnecting our rational principles from pragmatic realities through "well-intended" malpractice ~ the "harm that good men do" as B Russell once wryly observed. It is clear that climate, population and extinction have been appropriated & exploited as political weapons, but that does not detract from the catastrophic effects humans have wrought upon the living environment and the ecosystems that support the life of the biosphere. Sure, there is plenty of polluted bath-water sluicing out of UN agendas that needs cleansing, but let's not allow our righteous enthusiasm in exposing their toxic waste, affect the critical ecological health of baby "Gaia."
