Twenty+ stories from conservative and liberal sources that will change your world-view
National Sovereignty. No other issue has managed to unite traditionalist conservatives, liberals, independents, and Libertarians in opposition to the secret formation of the North American Union by the Bush administration. Today we have the ongoing creation of a new country right under the shade of our collective nostrils- the North American Union!!! As improbable as it seems, the creation of this new country (by influential “open-border” elitists and multi-national corporate globalists), which will eventually make obsolete our constitution and irrelevant our national laws, is currently underway. CNN’s Lou Dobbs called it “beyond belief” but true.
Dobbs said, “You know, I was asked the other day about whether or not I really thought the American people had the stomach to stand up and stop this nonsense, this direction from a group of elites, an absolute contravention of our law, of our Constitution, every national value. And I hope, I pray that I'm right when I said yes. But this is – I mean, this is beyond belief." . . .
Here are some excerpts from news items you probably missed because most of the main-stream media has refused to address the issue. Last night, however, CNN news started to raise questions. Now if you don’t have the time to read these excerpts, just scan the headlines and the bold print. If you manage to connect the dots, then you are miles ahead of the majority of folks who are asleep at the wheel because they are reliant on the major networks.
“Newly Uncovered Commerce Department Documents Detail “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America
U.S. Government Working Groups & Business Leaders Seek to “Harmonize” Regulations with Canada and Mexico (Washington, DC) -- Judicial Watch, the public interest organization that promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law, today released records obtained under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) from the International Trade Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce concerning the “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.”
On March 23, 2005, heads of government Vincente Fox, George W. Bush, and Paul Martin launched the North American partnership at a meeting in Waco, Texas, with the expressed goal of “a safer, more prosperous North America.” According to the documents, the partnership’s “working groups” include government and business leaders from the United States, Mexico and Canada, who are addressing a variety of topics, including movement of goods between countries, traveler security, energy, environment and health. Proponents of the partnership claim its purpose is to increase security and prosperity for all three nations through enhanced cooperation. Critics maintain the partnership will sacrifice U.S. sovereignty by establishing a “North American Union,” with open borders and a common currency. . .”
“Ok here’s the primer for those who don’t want to download the International Trade Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce document “Final Recommendations from the U.S. Section of the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC)”. . .
Open Borders . . .Basically the final recommendations are pushing the development of a non-discretionary, low-cost, easily obtainable, federally issued document, “such as an enhanced driver’s license or identity card” for all travelers as an alternative to the passport.
(Note: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of State (DOS) now have new requirements. American citizens-entering or re-entering the U.S. from Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean will have to present “documents denoting both identity and citizenship by January 1, 2008”).
The final recommendations would also have the US work with the Canadian and the Mexican governments to certify their ID’s so that eventually just licenses could be used for travel into the US.
In the mean time, however, the recommendations are for the DHS to set up a “limited short-term pass program” to facilitate people who come to the border without documents!!! The final recommendations are that “A reasonable grace period should be established at border crossings, during which time people lacking documents are educated about their options and allowed to pass.!!!”
“ACLU and Allies Oppose Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, Say Plan Undermines Privacy, Provides Little Security WASHINGTON -
The American Civil Liberties Union today joined with Citizen Against Government Waste and the Cato Institute to oppose the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). The WHTI will require all travelers, including American citizens, to have a passport or other "appropriate security document" to enter or re-enter the United States from countries within the Western Hemisphere, including Canada and Mexico. . .
The WHTI was mandated by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, and is slated to roll out in 2008. CAGW today issued a report outlining the shortcomings of the WHTI program. . .
"At its core, the WHTI only gives the illusion of security," Sparapani added.
"Terrorists, smugglers and undocumented immigrants could still find ways to enter the country or obtain false documents. The privacy of Americans should not be compromised under a failed program." Source: http://www.aclu.org/safefree/general/26681prs20060907.html
“Toll road contract at issue in governor's race to be made public

“North American merger topic of secret confab
Meeting on integration of U.S., Mexico, Canada brings together top officials World Net Daily September 20 2006 WASHINGTON – Raising more suspicions about plans for the future integration of the U.S., Canada and Mexico, a high-level, top-secret meeting of the North American Forum took place this month in Banff – with topics ranging from "A Vision for North America," "Opportunities for Security Cooperation" and "Demographic and Social Dimensions of North American Integration. . ."
The "Soft" Revolution
The following is from a bog written this week by Kevin Craig, running for Congress - Libertarian Party Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives, 7th District, Missouri,
“SPP Destroying Evidence?
. . ."soft law" -- unsigned and even unwritten laws that advance the agenda of hemispheric integration without allowing Congress to exercise congressional oversight. . .
As you are reading this, a new government is being created which will overrule all laws and constitutions in the United States. The progress being made in this "soft revolution" will continue unabated regardless of whether or not anything was signed on March 23, 2005. We need representatives in Congress who will work to stop it.
Unfortunately, this issue is not on the political radar of most voters in 2006, and many important milestones in the creation of the North American Union are scheduled for completion in 2007, which will create political and legal inertia that will make it even more difficult to stop in 2008. . .”
“SOLD! America III
Bonnie Alba September 26, 2006
Perhaps the most important story of the 21th century is happening away from the public eye. The first-step plan implementation is the Trans-Texas Corridor(TTC), a super highway slated to begin construction in 2007. On September 30, in a kickoff protest across 70-77 counties, many Texans will step into the sunlight, make their way to their county seats and lay a "cupful of soil" from their land on the courthouse steps. "Hands Across the Corridor" is their cry. (indytexans.org) . . .
This isn't just about the TTC, but also about other planned toll road projects which will affect many more Texans and their livelihoods. It appears that Gov. Rick Perry has fallen for the future vision of a three-nation union with no borders, no security, and the pluralism-multiculturalism which threatens all of us. . .
Robert Pastor, Director of the Center for North American Studies at American University, has written extensively on and pushed for his vision of a North American Union based on the European Union model. He also served as a co-chair of the 2005 Council of Foreign Relations task force promoting "Building a North American Community." (www.cfr.org/publication/8102/.) . . .
Are we too soft and complacent? Do we really understand what we will lose?
The Texans may be the first to face this gigantic, strategic plan to destroy our sovereignty. They will know, firsthand, the loss of their property rights and be left with the knowledge that their state and federal governments no longer secure citizens in their property. But they won't be the last. . .
Please review an article in this blog from January 2006:
“The Trans Texas Corridor: Tollway to One World Government It Isn’t Just Fringe Fanatics Who Are Worrying Now
Here’s what the Council on Foreign Relations wants to dictate to us . . . We are being told that we must consolidate the economic communities of Mexico, the US, and Canada. We are being told that National Sovereignty is an “outdated concept.” We are being told that in order to protect the American public from terrorists we must create a new community - the North American Union!!! All these things are coming together to build this “new relationship”: the North American Security Cooperative Act, the passage of NAFTA, CAFTA, the forthcoming FTAA (Free Trade Areas of the Americas), and the route to get us there is the Bush/Perry Trans Texas Corridor!!! . .”

“North American Union
The "plan to create" a North American Union in 2010 as a regional government—comprising a collective government for the United States, Canada, and Mexico—is "directly stated only" in the May 2005 task force report Building a North American Community
See:(http://www.cfr.org/publication/8102/building_a_north_american_community.html) published by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Jerome Corsi wrote (http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=15763) June 26, 2006. . . .
A North American Union is being created "through a process of governmental regulations" and without ever "having to bring the issue before the American people for a clear referendum or vote," Corsi wrote (http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=15059) May 24, 2006. "
What is objectionable is the plan to form a European Union-style North American Super-Highway system whose primary goal is to establish trilateral links for the open passage of freight transportation and the virtually unrestrained 'migration' of people among the three countries. Building NAFTA Super-Highways that effectively erase the U.S. borders with Mexico and Canada is a concern, especially if the NAFTA Super-Highways contribute to accomplishing in a de facto manner the integration of the United States into a North American Union, thereby threatening the currently established sovereignty of the United States," Corsi wrote (http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=15839) June 30, 2006. . .
Lamb wrote. "NASCO claims that 'There are no plans to build a new NAFTA Superhighway - it exists today as I-35.' This, however, is at odds with reality," Lamb wrote. "The goal is to build and operate a privately funded toll-corridor that includes up to 10 lanes of car and truck traffic, rail lines, pipelines and utilities, including communications systems. The current agreement is limited to Texas, but fits nicely into the master plan being advanced by NASCO.
"It also fits nicely into the vision of the Council on Foreign Relations' [May 2005] report: Building a North American Community (http://www.cfr.org/content/publications/attachments/NorthAmerica_TF_final.pdf), which advocates 'unlimited access to each other's territory' (page 47), including allowing Mexican or Canadian companies to freely enter the U.S. to compete with U.S. trucking companies, hauling freight between U.S. cities." . . .
“The superhighway no one is funding
By Admin, Section National News Posted on Sat Sep 02, 2006 at 07:59:44 AM EST
by Joseph Farah,
Between the Lines Another key congressman - Rep. Roy Blunt, majority whip in the House of Representatives - is telling his constituents the federal government has nothing to do with the idea of building the "NAFTA superhighway."
This is at least the third Republican member of Congress either playing dumb or deliberately deceiving American taxpayers by claiming no federal dollars have flowed into the project. . . .”
"NAFTA highway or new silk road?
By William Hawkins The Washington Post September 24, 2006
On Sept. 7, the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), a government office established in March to increase cooperation between the United States, Canada and Mexico, released a progress report. Among its achievements was creation of an American Competitiveness Council to enhance North America's posture in the struggle for hotly contested global markets.
Unfortunately, major events are already unfolding that will undermine this belated attempt to respond to ambitious rivals who have been piling up ever-higher trade surpluses at the expense of American-based enterprises.
A flurry of articles over the summer painted the SPP as a step toward a North American Union that would submerge national sovereignty and open the U.S. to mass migration and political corruption. Human Events launched the story from the right, but it spread across the spectrum to the Daily Kos on the left. . . .
One focus of the articles was a planned corridor of highways and railroads from Mexico into the American Midwest dubbed the "NAFTA Highway." Some of the stories sought to revisit the debate over the North American Free Trade Agreement, but what is really behind this transportation network heralds the collapse of NAFTA and its dream of a stronger continental economy. NAFTA was supposed to combine cheap Mexican labor with U.S. capital and technology to improve competition with Asian rivals . . .
The Chinese firm Hutchison Whampoa has partnered with Wal-Mart in a $300 million expansion of Lazaro Cardenas to handle perhaps 2 million containers annually by the end of the decade. The American Chamber of Commerce in Guangdong, China, has held seminars promoting this Mexican port. . . .
While American-based manufacturers will continue to suffer under the barrage of Chinese goods, Mexican industry will be smashed flat by what should be called a new Silk Road rather than a NAFTA highway. The economic development goals of NAFTA are being abandoned. More than 600 of the maquiladoras assembly plants along the U.S.-Mexican border have relocated to China, leaving their Mexican workers behind. There is little chance for Mexican wages to rise if at $1.50 an hour they can be undercut by Chinese labor at 50 cents an hour. . . .”
Trans Texas Corridor Master Plan Released
Drivers willing to pay to leave Interstate 35 in the dust could have an alternative as early as the summer of 2013. . . .
Because passenger vehicles pay 15.2 cents per mile and truck drivers pay 58.5 cents per mile, the whole plan relies on travelers and freight companies being willing to pay the toll, said Dillard, the Texas Department of Transportation spokesman. . .
The company then will have the rights to the tolls for 50 years, and by then, the road could be generating billions of dollars each year . . .
“Texans didn’t get a chance to vote on this, it’s just getting rammed down our throats,” said Rick Wegwerth, leader of the Waco anti-corridor group, DERAIL. . . .
Note: According to a January 25, 2005 article by Gordon Dickson, a staff writer for the Fort Worth Star Telegram, since Cintra began controlling tolls in Canada, “Tolls have gone up 200 percent!”
“Students train in 'model parliament' for new North American Union!
N. American students trained for 'merger' 10 universities participate in 'model Parliament' in Mexico to simulate 'integration' of 3 nations
WASHINGTON – In another example of the way the three nations of North America are being drawn into a federation, or "merger," students from 10 universities in the U.S., Mexico and Canada are participating annually in a simulated "model Parliament." Under the sponsorship of the Canadian based North American Forum on Integration, students met in the Mexican Senate for five days in May in an event dubbed "Triumvirate," with organizers declaring "A North American Parliament is born." . . .
"The creation of a North American parliament, such as the one being simulated by these young people, should be considered," explained Raymond Chretien, the president of the Triumvirate and the former Canadian ambassador to both Mexico and the U.S. . . .
Perhaps the most blistering criticism came earlier this summer from Lou Dobbs of CNN – a frequent critic of President Bush's immigration policies.
"A regional prosperity and security program?" he asked rhetorically in a recent cablecast. "This is absolute ignorance. And the fact that we are – we reported this, we should point out, when it was signed. But, as we watch this thing progress, these working groups are continuing. They're intensifying. What in the world are these people thinking about? You know, I was asked the other day about whether or not I really thought the American people had the stomach to stand up and stop this nonsense, this direction from a group of elites, an absolute contravention of our law, of our Constitution, every national value. And I hope, I pray that I'm right when I said yes. But this is – I mean, this is beyond belief." . . .
The concerns about the direction such powerful men could lead Americans without their knowledge is only heightened when interlocking networks are discovered. For instance, one of the components envisioned for this future "North American Union" is a superhighway running from Mexico, through the U.S. and into Canada. It is being promoted by the North American SuperCorridor Coalition, or NASCO, a non-profit group "dedicated to developing the world’s first international, integrated and secure, multi-modal transportation system along the International Mid-Continent Trade and Transportation Corridor to improve both the trade competitiveness and quality of life in North America." . . .

“Model Parliament Organizers make clear their intent:
The creation of a North American parliament, such as the one being simulated by these young people, should be considered,” explained Raymond Chretien, the president of the Triumvirate and the former Canadian ambassador to both Mexico and the U.S. . . .
Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo. and the chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus as well as author of the new book, “In Mortal Danger,” may be the only elected official to challenge openly the plans for the new superstate.
Responding to a WND report, Tancredo is demanding the Bush administration fully disclose the activities of the government office implementing the trilateral agreement that has no authorization from Congress. . .”
“North American Union Would Trump U.S. Supreme Court
by Jerome R. Corsi Posted Jun 19, 2006
The Bush Administration is pushing to create a North American Union out of the work on-going in the Department of Commerce under the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America in the NAFTA office headed by Geri Word. A key part of the plan is to expand the NAFTA tribunals into a North American Union court system that would have supremacy over all U.S. law, even over the U.S. Supreme Court, in any matter related to the trilateral political and economic integration of the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Right now, Chapter 11 of the NAFTA agreement allows a private NAFTA foreign investor to sue the U.S. government if the investor believes a state or federal law damages the investor’s NAFTA business. . .
Like it or not, NAFTA Chapter 11 tribunals already empower foreign NAFTA investors and corporations to challenge the sovereignty of U.S. law in the United States. . .
Under the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) plan expressed in May 2005 for building NAFTA into a North American Union, the stakes are about to get even higher. . .
The CFR plan clearly calls for the establishment of a “permanent tribunal for North American dispute resolution” as part of the new regional North American Union (NAU) governmental structure that is proposed to go into place in 2010. As the CFR report details on page 22: . . .
The executive branch under the Bush Administration is quietly putting in place a behind-the-scenes trilateral regulatory scheme, . .
We will develop a trilateral Regulatory Cooperative Framework by 2007 to support and enhance existing, as well as encourage new cooperation among regulators, including at the outset of the regulatory process. We wonder if the Bush Administration intends to present the Trilateral Regulatory Cooperative Framework now being constructed by SPP.gov to Congress for review in 2007, or will the administration simply continue along the path of knitting together the new NAU regional governmental structure behind closed doors by executive fiat?
“Is our 2nd Civil War about to begin?
A couple of posters have hinted that we may be on the verge of another civil war. If so, who will fight this war??? More likely, we will be merged before the American public even learns the truth!!!
Since most Americans are pretty fat, happy, dumbed-down, and complacent, and are totally reliant on the mainstream media, we won't be fighting any civil wars. Let's just think of this merger as sort of a Big Box type of take over. Big Box moves into town and offers some real bargains and benefits. Next thing you know all the Mom and Pop stores are out of business, gone, and forgotten. Remember when Wal Mart used to advertise that all of the products that they carried were "Made in America"? Then remember what happened? So, too, will go the USA as we once knew it. That is unless we can wake up quite a few more folks. . .”
