Is the "Sister City" movement a part of Agenda 21?

Recently, the Pickens County Council quietly let the cat out of the bag that two council members and their spouses would be traveling to Germany to "partner with a 'Sister City'" ...

What is the 'Sister City' movement about?

You can also read more here:


Yes, you're reading that link right, the 'Sister City" program is part of the United Nations, Sustainable Development, and Agenda 21.

Here's the opening from the website linked above. 

Pay attention to "NGO involvement" and globalist marketing.
Description/achievement of initiative 
Sister Cities International is creating a network of sister city partnerships committed to implementing the concepts of sustainable development, as outlined by the international community. Through innovative, cross-cultural projects, sister city partners will demonstrate that locally based actions can: (a) be a catalyst for advancing sustainable development concepts throughout the world; (b) improve the quality of life for citizens within their communities; (c) advance the knowledge and practice of sustainable development through long-term, sustainable relationships; (d) mutually reinforce and integrate the goals of good governance, sustainable economic development, social development and environmental stewardship; and (e) achieve concrete results through partnerships with the public and private sector.

The Sister Cities Network for Sustainable Development will involve sister city communities and their citizens, international and U.S. non-governmental organizations (NGOs), multilateral organizations, corporations, foundations and other major donors to address a variety of issues related to sustainable development as outlined in the United Nations' Agenda 21, the Plan of Implementation adopted at the World Summit for Sustainable Development (WSSD) and the Millennium Development Goals. Using the Sister Cities Internaitonal "model," sister city partnerships will promote the participation of local citizens in all levels of program development, including identifying project areas, suggesting and designing solutions, overseeing implementation and evaluating results.
I'm not sure what role our County Council plays in social development, but that is one of the goals of the 'Sister City' program.

Letter to School Board concerning “diversity” statement ...


The following was presented for answer ...

School Board members & Superintendent Merck,

Conservatives of the Upstate would like further clarification on Dr. Merck’s statement in the minutes of last board meeting.

“The area we are currently addressing is a lack of diversity in leadership positions in the district.”

Exactly what does lack of diversity mean and who has identified this as a problem in our school district?

About Trump’s State Of The Union Address ...

From U.S. Representative Jeff Duncan:

President Trump’s bold State of the Union address to Congress was an excellent display of leadership and vision. It is refreshing to have a President who has made the people’s priorities his own and who resonates with the goals and aspirations of the country. We have someone in the White House who gets it - someone willing to move power from Washington back to the people where it belongs.

After eight stagnant years, President Trump has ushered in a renewal of the American spirit and the American economy. The nation has greatly benefited from historic tax cuts, a booming economy, remarkable job creation, a record-setting stock market, and low unemployment numbers just after one year in office.

He has ensured that all Americans have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by securing our nation and strengthening our military to defend our freedoms. He began addressing our readiness and security issues on day one, and he has put the needs of our servicemen and women as a top priority. That commitment especially extends to our veterans, where President Trump has made rooting out corruption and mismanagement at the Department of Veterans Affairs a top priority. I was also excited to hear that the President has taken the closure of the terrorist detainment center at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay off the table. This was an issue I have long championed, because like the President, I believe that no state should become a terrorist dumping ground.

Simply put, he has put America first, which is something we had not seen in years. The message delivered tonight is the message of the American people. President Trump’s achievements in the first year are countless, but there is still much work to be done. I look forward to working hand in hand with the President as we continue to Make America Great Again for each and every citizen of this great country.
