Many of you know that I live in a small Rural community in Central Texas. Some of you may also know that I own and manage several single family rental properties.
Well earlier this week I received a threatening letter from our local Code Enforcement officer. I have one house that has a closed in back porch, and I had a tenant that lived in the house for over eight years. He never told me that the metal roof on that back porch was leaking.. By the time I found out about it, (when he moved), the ceiling was completely destroyed. The porch and the roof do need to be repaired. (No argument there). And that's not my point in posting this here. The problem is the letter I received from this Code Enforcement officer sighted some previously unknown building codes. Most of us who have ever been around construction are familiar with the older BOCA building codes. For those who are not familiar, the BOCA codes are simply a set of codes and standards that outline how to do things like electrical wiring, plumbing, and how to install doors and windows, fire places, and furnaces. They are just good-practice guidelines.
But this new one sighted by this Code Enforcement officer is totally different.
What he sighted is something called :
"The 2012 International Property Maintenance Code"
Needless to say that word "International" caught my eye. So I decided to look it up.
What I found is what you need to be aware of. Yes - You guessed it, This is pure UN Agenda 21, - IN YOUR FACE TOTALITARIANISM.
This is a 702 page document that governs and controls every aspect of your housing and living conditions. This is not simply a set of "Good-Practice" building and wiring standards. The entire first chapter, (it appears to be about 15 pages), all focuses on authority and enforcement. If your community or City has adopted this thing it pretty well governs everything in your house, and how you are told to maintain it, It grants the "Authorities" permission to enter and "inspect" your house any damn time they want too. And if they decide to, they can condemn your house any time they choose, for nearly any reason. And (if adopted) it's all legally binding - - against YOU. No recourse. And the really great part of it all is that they don't even have to tell you they have adopted these new rules and "Codes", until they decide to inspect your house.
Have I got your attention yet? Are we having fun yet?
Take some time to read this thing, at least the first chapter. And then call your local city officials and ask them if your city of town has adopted these new "codes" into your community.
This is how they plan on enforcing control, one more aspect of your life, death by a thousand cuts.
Much of this is false. Please fact check yourself. This is why many young people think we are just a bunch of crazies.
Burnetta Swartz ; If : Much of this is false ; Please : What is false , How to fix congress or " Attitude " ????
read your update rooster I am sorry to hear that. This is worse than Brittian back in the day when we over threw them. If there is anything I can do brother...let me know. John H.
It appears that the "The 2012 International Property Maintenance Code" stands alone and must be adopted by your local government to be in effect.
It seems to me that you should organize a group of local citizens to strenuously object the their adoption of such an intrusive UN document, and shut it down!

UPDATE: Friday August 5th, 2016. Here's an update on what I've learned concerning this ICC 2012 International Property Maintenance Codes. This information comes from a very good source and from areas and people who know what they are talking about.
#1) The ICC, (International Code Counsel) This is a separate organization organized for the sole purpose of consolidating old outdated building codes. Prior to this consolidation various sections of the country had adopted their own building codes. Contractors and builders moving from one area to another often had no idea what the local building codes were which of course lead to all kinds of violations and discrepancies, some of which ended in disaster. So the ICC was organized to help develop a standardized set of building and maintenance codes. The ICC is a separate organization from ICLEI and Agenda-21. Cities and Towns who choose to join ICC and use their building and maintenance codes do so voluntarily and do NOT necessarily join the ICLEI and Agenda-21.
#2) ICLEI is the enforcement arm of the UN Agenda-21. ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) IS Agenda-21. Cities, Towns, Counties, and States who join the ICC above do not automatically join the ICLEI, however they can join both and many have. Once they have joined in this global agenda they can use the ICC Codes as a means to access and enforce various building codes and violations almost at will. Agenda-21 is the United Nations agenda for climate control, environmental control, and POPULATION Control. The goals of the UN population control is to tax and fine people to the point where they can no longer afford to remain on their property. “Sustainable Rural Development”, People will eventually be moved and relocated to more manageable Mega cities where they can be more easily controlled and managed.
My local code enforcement official claimed to know nothing about ICLIE or Agenda-21, but of course has was knowledgeable on the ICC PMC. According to him the 2015 version of the codes is even more intrusive than the present 2012 version.
The Agenda-21 was a UN Treaty adopted first in the US by President George H.W. Bush and has been signed onto and agreed to by every US President since then.
President Barack Obama signed onto it in 2013 and issued an executive order (# 13575 in 2013.) creating his White House Counsel of Sustainable Rural Development.
(ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, founded in 1990 as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, is an international association of local governments and national and regional local government organizations that have made a commitment to sustainable development.
The association was established when more than 200 local governments from 43 countries convened at its inaugural conference, the World Congress of Local Governments for a Sustainable Future, at the United Nations in New York in September 1990. Today, more than 1200 cities, towns, counties, and their associations in 84 countries comprise ICLEI's growing membership. ICLEI works with these and hundreds of other local governments through international performance-based, results-oriented campaigns and programs. It provides technical consulting, training, and information services to build capacity, share knowledge, and support local government in the implementation of sustainable development at the local level. ICLEI's basic premise is that locally designed initiatives can provide an effective and cost-efficient way to achieve local, national, and global sustainability objectives.)
For more information on the UN Agenda-21 and the implications to you, your city and Towns, and to America watch some of these videos and search the Internet for more videos.
Here is a video of this action taking place in Los Angeles, California. This should be a wake up call for everyone as this is now taking place all across the nation. Short and scary.
Here is a follow up video that you must watch to the end and see the business card - you will not believe what it says this guy is. It is short but drives home the point we are talking about.
And if those two don't raise your dander please watch this last short video showing armed - yes armed District Attorney police escorts for code enforcement official searching a garage without consent or a warrant. This is out of control and is only going to get worse.
It's funny how all laws and rules are well intentioned,but how they have all become corrupt and many times intrusive and invade our private lives and privacy! many times the government assumes responsibility for us through their vast agencies but still their are no real protections for us and the less educated we become the more the government and those they say they are protecting us from, prey upon us!
like the Governments just say no to drugs program a few years back we need to just say no to them! and after that just ask them to leave, they are after all trespassing. just because they create a law does not make it just legal or constitutional.
"just because they create a law does not make it just legal or constitutional" AMEN brother!
I agree Steve, but the gov't does not care about the Constitution, so any laws that are passed are expected to be enforced and in most cases they are because the enforcers do not know the Constitution, and if they did know it they most likely would not care.
Restore the constitution and we could all breathe a little easier, and we would most definitley have more phoney dollar bills in our pockets, so we could build our own nest eggs instead of them stealing from us and thereby making us dependent on them, they have stolen all from us and made us their dependents.
