    "Redistribution of Wealth" Plan DOCUMENTED.

    I have an Idea - Lets just pretend this isn't HAPPENING and maybe it will just GO AWAY.



    I would recommend you go through this Channel and look at their ARCHIVE. Its a channel run by a few citizens of a town going through Redistribution of Wealth/Agenda 21/Climate Change PERSONALLY, WHO ARE DOCUMENTING WHAT IS COMING TO YOUR TOWN.

    or go back to sleep and copy/pasting sink hole and irrelevant Politicians.Immigration
    I am sure that "Information" will help fight the Illegal Manufactured "Problem".

    As SCAG Talks Environmental Justice, Tea Party Group Hones in on E.D.

    by Damien Newton
    Each red dot on this map is a concentration of 1,000 low-income households. The green is the parkland in the six-county SCAG region. Access to these parks is one issue that SCAG is trying to deal with in its Environmental Justice planning. Click on the map for a larger version. Graphic via SCAG.

    Regional planning documents and hearings are hardly exciting to write about. Interminably long public meetings, wonky terms, never-ending studies. It’s one reason that Streetsblog hardly covers the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), even though the regional plan it puts out is incredibly important in determining which projects receive federal funds and which ones don’t.

    Fortunately for the sake of clicks and page views, but unfortunately for public policy, the Tea Party is taking aim at SCAG Executive Director Hasan Ikhrata just as the agency is holding Environmental Justice workshops in advance of the 2016 Regional Plan. Meeting details for its second of two outreach meetings are at the bottom of this post. You can also email comments on the plan to johnson@scag.ca.gov​.

    SCAG is required to provide an explanation of how its regional planning impacts disadvantaged communities and communities of color. Advocacy groups have rightly noted that this requirement is one lever that can be used to re-direct funds away from the types of highway projects that have traditionally divided minority and less-affluent communities and instead use it to reinvest in those areas by providing better access to parks and public transit, more open space, and safer and more attractive facilities for walking, bicycling, or just being outside.

    Coverage of the current SCAG efforts on Environmental Justice by Climate Plan and the Safe Routes to Schools National Partnership help explain in greater detail how these meetings, and this part of the plan, provide excellent opportunity to increase the investment in active transportation and disadvantaged communities for anyone who wants to learn more.
    The post by Climate Plan is particularly interesting as it calls for, in the wonky way that regional planners prefer, better outreach to disadvantaged and communities of color, creating environmental justice metrics and tracking that can be broken down for each of the six counties in the SCAG region and a full analysis on the health impacts that the poor air quality created by Southern California’s freeways has on the communities they cut through.

    If all of Climate Plan’s suggestions become part of the regional plan, it would have an impact on what kinds of projects get built similar to a Measure R2 that sets aside hundreds of millions of dollars for active transportation. Maybe not right away, but it would change the way the region talks about transportation.

    Any chance that will happen would go away if the public comment they receive is dominated by people asking for greater investment in our already sprawling and gigantic highway system.

    But just as SCAG is holding these meetings, Grindal61, a tea party videographer, launched an attack on SCAG’s executive director in a video subtly titled,

    COMMUNIST GODFATHER KINGPIN HASAN IKHRATA DEFENDS HIS AGENDA 21 POLICIES.”

    Ikhrata makes a perfect canvas for an anti-government tea-partier to project nearly all of his or her fears. Not only is he a renowned urban planner with an Arabic name bringing fever dreams of United Nations-type plans to force people out of their cars, but he is also a former employee of the Soviet Union’s Moscow Metro Corporation and earned his bachelor’s degree from Moscow University.

    The horror.


    Ikhrata, on the far right, defends the I-710 Big Dig project at last May’s Zocalo Public Square meeting. Image:

    http://www.zocalopublicsquare.org/20...akeaway/Zocalo

    I sometimes get in trouble when I try to be cute and sarcastic when writing about anything involving race and religion, so let me be blunt. Even though Grindal61 doesn’t make any mention of religion, some of the commenters to the video do and it goes uncorrected and unchallenged. I have no idea what religion, if any, Ikhrata practices. I really don’t care. It is completely immaterial to any discussion of his job performance and priorities nor those of SCAG.

    Now, his unwavering public support for the I-710 Big Dig, the kind of government spending project that libertarians usually love, is another issue. That is certainly fair game. Although, oddly, it doesn’t come up in videos slamming the SCAG director for the agency’s efforts to use tolls to fund highway expansion.

    As laughable as the video campaign against Ikhrata is, the environmental justice component of SCAG’s regional plan is too important to let the public process be hijacked by groups pushing a separate political agenda. If you can’t make it tomorrow night, be sure to send SCAG a message at johnson@scag.ca.gov​.

    It doesn’t have to be long, or in-depth; just let them know how you feel about using progressive transportation planning to help roll back some of the transportation planning disasters from last century.

    Thanks for INFORMING PEOPLE of YOUR VIEW. Although you didn't write ANY of YOUR VIEWS, your COPY/PASTE Speaks. Here are a couple of points that this COPY/Paste job article makes clear as to who WROTE IT OR THEIR AGENDA?(I was told when I first came to ALIPAC 'Post a link to your post at the Bottom of the page') I could find it, but your post makes your view clear, so it doesn't really matter, just read it.

    1."Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG)," Associated Government are UN-ELECTED Governing Bodies that can override local Policy/Legislation with a Simple Majority Vote of Towns/Cities/Counties INVOLVED. ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability is the world’s leading network of over 1,000 cities, towns and metropolises committed​ to building​ a sustainable future. // Find out more about ICLEI

    2. " incredibly important in determining which projects receive federal funds and which ones don’t." I would you to look up "PACE LOANS". That it what most of the Federal Funds ARE, MEANING YOU BORROW TE MONEY AND MUST PAY IT BACK!!!! I could post 1000 links. SEARCH IT

    3. "have traditionally divided minority and less-affluent communities and instead use it to reinvest in those areas by providing better access to parks and public transit, more open space, and safer and more attractive facilities for walking, bicycling, or just being outside" IN OTHER WORDS YOU ARE RACIST IF YOU DONT GO ALONG WITH THIS.

    4. "The post by Climate Plan is particularly interesting as it calls for, in the wonky way that regional planners prefer, better outreach to disadvantaged and communities of color" AGAIN YOU ARE RACIST IF YOU DONT SUPPORT IT

    5. "perfect canvas for an anti-government tea-partier to project nearly all of his or her fears. Not only is he a renowned urban planner with an Arabic name " - 2 TRIGGER WORDS that say YOU ARE A "Domestic Terrorist" and an "Islamophobe"

    6. " let me be blunt. Even though Grindal61 doesn’t make any mention of religion, some of the commenters to the video do and it goes uncorrected and unchallenged. I have no idea what religion, if any, Ikhrata practices. I really don’t care." - Why would anyone "so bluntly" even bring it up, if you don't care, especially about COMMENTS ON A YOUTUBE VIDEO. lol

    7. " laughable as the video campaign against Ikhrata is, the environmental justice component of SCAG’s regional plan is too important to let the public process be hijacked by groups pushing a separate political agenda." These "groups pushing a political agenda" ARE CITIZENS OF THE TOWN!!!
    "laughable"???

    I could go on but you are a "Senior Member" or whatever its called, so I would assume this was done under the guise of Debate to give the People Both Sides, because I would assume YOU HAVE DEVELOPED THE SKILLS OF RESEARCHING INFORMATION, BESIDES "GOOGLING IT". If not, this post really brings to Light, your ability to be a Major Poster, or whatever title you go by, on a PAC website. Its not worth the time, but thank you for the OPPORTUNITY to DISCUS WHAT Mainstream Corp. Gov. Media WONT TOUCH.

    Again, go look through their "ARCHIVE". Most Info sources are to the point where you have to spend an hour to get ONE MINUTE OF PERTINENT INFORMATION, but what I like about this Channel is you get about 10 MINUTES and A BUNCH of TERMS TO SEARCH FOR YOURSELF, beyond "GOOGLING IT".

    Trust but Verify. Sheep to Water...

    I was asked to be "nicer" on this site and although it is unethical to retract true statements, I would like to say that I apologize and I should not speculate or assume things in the future, so retracting part of my post would be the nice thing to do.

    Retraction: "I would assume this was done under the guise of Debate to give the People Both Sides, because I would assume YOU HAVE DEVELOPED THE SKILLS OF RESEARCHING INFORMATION,"

    Actually, I had never heard of SKAG before your post because it is in California and I live on the other side of the country. It makes me wonder if there are under the radar groups like this in other states and who finances them.

    More people need to know what they are up to and where they meet. I think that the the arrogance toward the opposition, the people that pay for their schemes, is typical of socialist redistribution advocates.
