Ernst Suggest United Nations Could Take Iowa Farms

Yahoo News has obtained video showing Iowa U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst (R) warning that the United Nations "could force Iowa farmers off their land, dictate what cities Iowans must live in, and control how Iowa citizens travel from place to place."

Said Ernst: "The United Nations has imposed this upon us, and as a U.S. senator, I would say, 'No more. No more Agenda 21.' Community planning -- to the effect that it is implementing eminent domain and taking away property rights away from individuals -- I don't agree with that."

Agenda 21 is "a community planning provision in a decades-old United Nations treaty that's become an object of fear and conspiracy theories on the right."
