Have you read my book -- Now Tell Me I Was Wrong?
By Tom DeWeese
October 15, 2014

You know, it's been a couple of years since my book was published and I have sold a lot of them as I travel across the country, speaking about Agenda 21. But I took a few minutes during this past weekend to look through the book again and frankly, it still surprises me. If I must say so myself, this is a very good book. It covers a vast number of issues in quick, easy to read essays.

These essays are a collection of articles I wrote over a fifteen year period for my newsletter The DeWeese Report. The articles were written during some of the greatest changes to our government, schools, economy and personal freedoms ever witnessed in our nation. The political events of the 1990s and early 2000s led to the outrages of Barack Obama and the massive drive toward an American socialist dictatorship. And I reported on most of it.

I wrote some of the first articles to ever reveal the true agenda of the radical environmental movement. At the time being Green was the most popular thing you could possibly be – but I exposed the flaws. I wrote about the hidden wealth of Earth Day that drives the agenda. I was the first to demand that the federal government arrest Eco Terrorists who were destroying property and equipment of the timber industry. Yet they faced no consequences for their more than 1500 acts of violence. And I exposed how the Greens were moving into Christian Churches to get preachers to spread their tree hugging propaganda from the pulpit and in Sunday school classes.

Are you concerned about Common Core in the classrooms today? The groundwork for Common Core started in the 1990s. During those years I fought alongside some courageous moms who were trying to stop Goals 2000, School-To-Work and Workforce Development.

They called themselves the Kitchen Militia. And we were betrayed by Republicans who led the way to pass this socialist revolution in our schools. In my book I detail that fight and I name the names of the Republicans who forced it through by any means, including lies and secret deals. Just to give you an idea of what I reported: as the vote was about to take place on Workforce Development Boards, a measure that I had personally helped to defeat three times, the Republican Senator who was sponsoring the bill told his fellow senators that I and Phyllis Schlafly were now supporting the bill. That lie got it passed.

I covered the early debate over illegal immigration; the creation of a national ID system that today is leading to total surveillance society. And of course, I exposed the United Nations programs that eventually led to Agenda 21. Let me give you just a few examples from the stories in my book. I was outraged when in 2004, during the Democrat National Convention, leftist activists actually booed the appearance of young men in the Boy Scout uniforms as they carried the American flag during the opening ceremonies. These brutes took their hatred out on little boys – all in the name of Progressive "compassion."

In 2007, when the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced it was endorsing the wealth redistribution scheme of rock star Bono, under the excuse of eradicating global poverty, I charged that the GOP was endorsing life-long bread lines. Wealth redistribution never cured poverty, it just creates more poor people. And a political party that is supposed to advocate the ideals of free enterprise and individual freedom should know that – not get caught up in rock star worship.

And in 1997, I wrote about how the Clinton Administration basically condemned to death eight courageous women who had tried to escape forced abortion and sterilization by escaping to America from China. They had risked everything, only to be jailed in the land of the free and sent back to sure death so that Bill Clinton could stay in favor with the brutal Chinese communists. I called it "The Betrayal of the Golden Venture" (the name of their rickety ship which ran aground on American soil). Tears poured from my eyes as I wrote that article and I still cry every time I read it today. I think it is my best work. Here's just a sample of what I wrote in that article: "But as they stood on the shore, in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, the trouble for these scared, desperate, cold, hungry women had just begun. One might wonder which is worse – the quick cold scalpel of the Chinese abortionists, or the brutally impersonal tortuous manipulations of the American bureaucracy and the betrayal of an American president."

Do you want to know why we have a TEA Party today? Do you want to know why Americans are so angry and afraid of their own government? It's because of issues like these. My book details the beginnings of these policies. It names the names of the perpetrators and gives the history to help you fight back.

When I wrote these articles, few Americans were listening. Some called me crazy – a radical. A conspiracy theorist. A fringe nut. Then I started reading editorials in newspapers and commentaries by others who had finally figured it out. And those articles started to sound like mine. And that's when I came up with the title "Now Tell Me I Was Wrong." "I told you so" seemed too crass!

As I said, I'm very proud of this book. It is ageless. If you haven't read it, I invite you to do so now. You can buy a copy at the American Policy Center website.
