The Falling Star
One thing that is essential for global
governance is that everybody be marching to the same tune.
Standardization and Harmonization - everybody following the same rule
set. "Stay between the lines".
"We're from the Comintern - and
we're here to help":
Can we have any doubt that nobody wanted
to go through the building codes to update them with codes that made
sense for Idaho - and that protected Idaho citizens and business owners?
That would be hard work... so much easier to simply adopt, 'One size
fits all - code in the box'.
House Bill 611, passed in the year 2000 by the Fifty Fifth Legislature

law to provide for the adoption of the latest edition of the
building code as published by the International Code Council; to
provide accessibility standards for those with disabilities; to
increase the membership of the Idaho Building Code Advisory Board;
and to provide a minimum level of certification for all building

International Code Council
The International Code Council (ICC) was established in 1994
as a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing a single set
of comprehensive and coordinated national model construction codes.
The founders of the ICC are Building Officials and Code
Administrators International, Inc. (BOCA), International Conference
of Building Officials (ICBO), and Southern Building Code Congress
International, Inc. (SBCCI). Since the early part of the last
century, these nonprofit organizations developed the three separate
sets of model codes used throughout the United States. Although
regional code development has been effective and responsive to our
country’s needs, the time came for a single set of codes. The
nation’s three model code groups responded by creating the
International Code Council and by developing codes without regional
limitations the International Codes.
The ICC has developed and made
available an impressive inventory of comprehensive and coordinated
International Codes, including:
- International Building Code
- International Energy Conservation
- International Existing Building
- International Fire Code
- International Fuel Gas Code
- International Mechanical Code
- ICC Performance Code
- International Plumbing Code
- International Private Sewage
- International Property Maintenance
- International Residential Code
- International Wildland Urban
- International Zoning Code
Fifty states and the District of
Columbia have adopted the I-Codes at the state or jurisdictional
level. Federal agencies including the Architect of the Capitol,
General Services Administration, National Park Service, Department
of State, U.S. Forest Service and the Veterans Administration also
enforce the I-Codes. The Department of Defense references the
International Building Code for constructing military facilities,
including those that house U.S. troops, domestically and abroad.
Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands enforce one or more of the

about it. And why not? They control everything - through the

2006-07 International Code Council Board President Wally Bailey held
the first in a series of “Fireside Chats” on Tuesday, March 6, 2007.
This 90-minute teleconference, which originated from Bailey’s office
in Fort Smith, Arkansas, was part of an on-going effort to improve
communications with Code Council members and stakeholders. It
allowed listeners to ask questions and participate in the
discussion. 2009-10 Board President Adolf Zubia will be continuing
The concept of “fireside chats” dates back more than 70 years, when
President Franklin Roosevelt’s radio broadcasts became a staple in
American homes during the Depression and World War II. FDR’s
fireside chats gave people a chance to hear directly from the
President himself on important issues of the day.
[Note: And his name is
Adolf... and he's a 'Z' man. Whoa!
I observed several years ago that if there was a 'Z' man/woman on
the committee or in any public arena, that person always seemed to have
the power - even if they weren't leading the meeting/event. As the
name implies, 'Z' is the first letter of either the first name or the
If you control
land use and building codes with "sustainable development" as the
agenda, technology as the means, with a Global Marshall Plan as your
charter, and the salivating construction trade unionists as your
"partners", you control the world.
