The Falling Star

"The Code"


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'.

Idaho House Bill 611, passed in the year 2000 by the Fifty Fifth Legislature with no dissenters:

BUILDING CODES - Amends existing 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 inspectors.

Idaho Statutes, Title 39, Chapter 41 - while you're there, take note of the "Building Code Fund". 



Local governments enforcing building codes shall do so only in compliance with
the provisions of this section. Local governments that have not previously
instituted and implemented a code enforcement program prior to the effective
date of this act may elect to implement a building code enforcement program by
passing an ordinance evidencing the intent to do so.
Local governments may
contract with a public or private entity to administer their building code
enforcement program.


(2)  By January 1, 2005, local governments that issue building permits and
perform building code enforcement activities shall, by ordinance,
adopt the
following codes as published by the International Code Council together with
any amendments or revisions set forth in section 39-4109
, Idaho Code:
International Building Code, including all rules promulgated by the
    board to provide equivalency with the provisions of the Americans with
    disabilities act accessibility guidelines and the federal fair housing act
    accessibility guidelines;
International Residential Code, parts I-IV and IX; and
International Energy Conservation Code.



Is that a great setup for an extortion racket or what? 

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 Code
  • International Existing Building Code
  • International Fire Code
  • International Fuel Gas Code
  • International Mechanical Code
  • ICC Performance Code
  • International Plumbing Code
  • International Private Sewage Disposal Code
  • International Property Maintenance Code
  • International Residential Code
  • International Wildland Urban Interface Code
  • 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 I-Codes.


We can see that these people are sure happy about it.  And why not?  They control everything - through the codes:

Fireside Chat
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 tradition.
 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 last name.]

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.
