Besides being a nutcase and a sweet-smiling dumber-than-the-back-end-of-a-pig Teabagger(a literal translation again, I"m afraid), Joni Ernst is also an extremely slow reader: Agenda 21 apparently dates from 1992.

I read where she had backtracked on Agenda21 in an interview afterwards suggesting she knows better on some level and that it only holds water with certain narrow audiences. Trying to play it both ways should hurt her: let us see whether it does.
