29 Aug Plans Moving Forward to Create a North American Union
August 29, 2006
Action Alert! Action Alert!
Urgent! Urgent! Urgent! Urgent! Urgent!
I know you have fought hard to preserve and protect the freedoms of our beloved nation, the United States.
But I must tell you now that if you and I don’t take immediate, strong action, no other issues will ever matter again because there will not be a United States of America to defend.
Those are not idle words.
I’m sorry to tell you that the Administration of President George W. Bush is moving rapidly, and in secret, to create a North American Union with Mexico and Canada.
The facts cannot be denied.
On March 23, 2005, President Bush, Vicente Fox, President of Mexico and (then) Canadian Prime Minster Paul Martin agreed to create the “Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP).
Since then, over 20 “working groups” have been established to implement a blueprint for a North American Union. That blueprint was written by the Council on Foreign Relations.
And the working groups, operating out of the Department of Commerce – on your tax dollars, have been following that blueprint almost to the letter.
They are creating a European Union in America. You and I must move immediately to stop them – or lose our nation forever.
First, I have prepared a special report to provide you with all of the facts. Please read it – and then pass it on to all of your friends and family and contacts.
Second, I have included addresses and phone numbers for President Bush and to both the House and Senate leadership, Call them and demand they stop this effort immediately. See all the details below.
There is no time to lose.
If we don’t stop the North American Union, all will be lost. Issues like property rights, privacy rights, illegal immigration, voluntary prayer will all be lost at one time.
It’s urgent that you and I sound the alarm and expose it.
You and I must stop the North American Union – or it will be the end of the dreams of Washington, Jefferson and the great men who founded this nation. And it’s the end of your dreams of living in freedom. It is the end of the United States.
North American Union Fact Sheet
The effort is in its infancy, however the Bush Administration has been operating in secret for at least two years to establish what can only be described as a North American Union with Mexico and Canada, along the same lines as the European Union. It eventually means an end to the U.S. Constitution as our ruling document, replaced instead with a new North American Government.
It will eventually lead to the surrender of U.S. sovereignty, independence, and national borders. It will result in the establishment of a North American currency called the “Amero,” as the dollar is junked.
The U.S. will provide the army for defense. The U.S. will provide Social Security benefits for those who are now citizens of Mexico and Canada. Gone will be U.S. citizenship. Gone will be any kind of border control between the three nations of North America.
Plans are well underway to establish a NAFTA Super Highway, to be the width of eight football fields. It will run from Mexico to Canada, running through the middle of the United States. No tariffs or no inspections will be enforced as trucks from Mexico and Canada drive through this nation.
Kansas City, MO has been tapped to serve as an “inland port” to handle imports and exports among the three nations. Operating quietly, Kansas City has already designated $2.5 million of its taxpayer’s money to establish the port. Now, some say the land the port sits on will become officially Mexican sovereign territory.
The effort began on March 23, 2005, after a summit, held in Waco, TX. It was attended by President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and (then) Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin. The three leaders signed an agreement to create common policies concerning various economic and security areas among the three nations.
For obvious cover of official deniability, the term “North American Union” is not being used. Instead, the agreement officially authorized eight tri-national “working groups” to establish the “Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP). The concept is being sold as simply a new framework within which the member nations can create free trade and security within the North American continent. However, based on working documents, the intent to create the North American Union is impossible to hide.
The trilateral agreement, signed as a joint declaration, has not been submitted to Congress for review. There is no congressional oversight.
Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP)
The joint statement on the SPP, issued on March, 23, 2005 described it as an initiative to: “…establish a common approach to security to protect North America from external threats, prevent and respond to threats within North America, and further streamline the security and efficient movement of legitimate, low-risk traffic across our shared borders.”
The working groups are now laying the foundation for a European Union-style integration of the North American continent.
The White House has established the SPP office in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) office in the U.S. Department of Commerce, where it has worked in virtual secrecy for two years. As the process proceeds, the SPP groups have not released public reports on their activities.
Over the past two years, at least 20 SPP working groups have produced a number of memorandums of understanding and trilateral declarations of agreement. These agreements cover a wide variety of issues including, e-commerce, aviation policy, border and immigration policy, and the means for multiple governmental agencies to interact. They may be viewed on the Internet at http://www.spp.gov.
Council on Foreign Relations Blue Print
Many SPP working groups appear to be working toward achieving specific objectives as defined by a May, 2005 Council on Foreign Relations(CFR) task force report, which presented a blueprint for expanding the SPP agreement into a North American Union that would merge the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a new governmental form.
The CFR report is entitled “Building a North American Community,” and is essentially a five year plan for implementing the North American Union. It may be viewed at the CFR Internet web sight at http://www.cfr.org.
A member of the CFR taskforce, Dr. Robert Pastor, wrote a book, published in 2001, titled “Toward a North American Commission.” The CFR taskforce report and the official SPP agreement carry almost identical language as the Pastor’s book.
The book, the CFR task force and the SPP agreement call for the establishment of a North American Competitiveness Council to pull in the private sector to the SPP process. In addition, all three call for the establishment of a “North American Advisory Council,” which is to be an “independent body of advisors,” composed of “eminent persons from outside the government.”
In 2002, Dr. Pastor addressed the Trilateral Commission, calling for the establishment of a North American Investment Fund that would supplement World Bank funds expended in a trilateral effort to develop Mexico economically. The May, 2005 CFR report called for the same fund. Efforts are now underway in the SPP to officially establish the fund.
The CFR Task Force calls for the “creation by 2010 of a North American community to enhance security, prosperity, and opportunity. We propose a community based on the principle affirmed in the March, 2005 Joint Statement of the three leaders (of the three nations) that ‘our security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary.’ Its boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter within the movement of people, products and capital will be legal, orderly, and safe.”
To those ends, the CFR report called for establishment of a common security border perimeter around North America by 2010, along with free movement of people, commerce and capital to be facilitated by the establishment of a North American Border Pass that would replace a U.S. passport for travel between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
Also envisioned by the CFR task force include a North American Court, a North American inter-parliamentary group, A North American Executive Commission, a North American Military Defense Command, a North American Customs Office and a North American Development Bank.
The task force report is important to the debate over the official Security and Prosperity Partnership because the language used in the CFR task force report and SPP documents, so far, have proven to be nearly identical. Clearly the CFR task force report is being used as the blue print to establish the North American Union.
No Congressional Authorization or Oversight
To date, Congress has passed no specific legislation to authorize the activities of the SPP, nor to funds it is spending. Congress has had no official involvement in the process and has no oversight.
Congressman Tom Tancredo, (R-Colo) has demanded that the Bush Administration fully disclose the activities of the SPP working groups, including revealing the names of the members of those groups. No answers to his demands have yet been received from the Bush Administration, though the activity continues to move forward.
NAFTA Super Highway
Quietly, the Bush Administration is working to advance a plan to build super highways through the heart of the United States to transport goods from Mexico and Canada. The highways are part of the original North American Free Trade Agreement, (NAFTA). The plan is now being advanced through an operation called “North America’s SuperCorridor Coalition, Inc” (NASCO). Since being exposed to the general public, NASCO is now denying it is building the highways, but plans go forward.
Beginning at the southern tip of Mexico, passing through Laredo, TX, the highway heads to an “inland port” in Kansas City, where a “Sentry System” will electronically inspect the cargos, before they head East or West, or continue on North through Duluth, Minnesota and into Canada.
The Super Transnational System includes multiple lanes for cars and trucks. Speed limits will be relaxed as well as safety inspections for vehicles from Mexico and Canada. Trucks will be allowed to carry extra tonnage and be extra long. A Railway system will travel up the center of the highway.
Several such highways are contemplated. Environmental impact studies have already been completed. In Texas, efforts are already underway as 584,000 acres have been targets for takings through Eminent Domain.
Kansas City Customs Port to be Mexican Soil
Kansas City will serve as an “inland port” for the NAFTA Superhighway. It will be the first, and perhaps ONLY check point and disbursement center for trucks bringing their cargos into this country from Mexico and Canada. The official organization in charge of setting up the port is KCSmartPort.
As part of the inland port, a Mexican Customs office is being established. The Kansas City Council has voted a $2.5 million loan to KCSmartPort to build the Mexican customs facility in the West Bottoms near Kemper Area on city-owned land east of Liberty Street and mostly south of Interstate 670.
According to e-mails and other documents obtained by World Net Daily, top executives with the KCSmartPort project, suggest the facility “would need to be designated as Mexican sovereign territory and meet certain requirements.”
The negotiations with Mexico and the U.S. State Department for the final approval of the Mexican Customs office are proceeding in secret.
The “Amero,” Merging U.S., Canadian and Mexican Currencies
Though it will take some years to finalize, plans are being laid to create a new currency for the coming North American Union, much like the Euro replaced the currencies of individual countries of the European Union. The Amero would replace the U.S. Dollar, Peso and Canadian Dollar.
The plan has been specifically promoted through Dr. Pastor’s book, the blueprint for the rest of the SPP plan, and now may be officially moving through the establishment of a new SPP effort called the “Financial Services Work Group.” To date, it is too early to tell exactly when such a change would move forward, but it is being discussed in high places.
The issue is so controversial that U.S. officials deny it has even been discussed.
A new government for North America
Many Americans simply do not believe that the United States would voluntarily give up its sovereignty to a North American Union. Those who think this way somehow believe that there will be a vote of the American people to decide.
It is little understood that such actions are done incrementally, behind closed doors, until the plans are so far along that stopping them becomes nearly impossible. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was sold as simply a way for American producers to broaden their markets. So too, was the European Union sold to the proud, ancient nations of that continent. Today, a new, socialist government rules them, complete with a ruling body, a new currency, a tax system, court system and a defense system — all the ingredients necessary for a government.
Operating in secret, SPP working groups are efficiently laying the groundwork for the destruction of the United States of America. Once the North American Union is in place, we will then have to compromise our very unique nation of protected freedoms with the socialist nations of Mexico and Canada, where property rights, justice, economics and natural rights are not recognized. Government decides.
The Security and Prosperity Partnership is about neither. It is not a plan simply to help sell American goods to larger markets. It is not a plan to help keep our nation safer in a security partnership with Mexico and Canada. Shutting our borders, not opening them, would do far more to accomplish that goal. The SPP is about creating a continental government.
The SPP is an invasion of our culture and our economy. It’s about the redistribution of American wealth and industry. It is the end of over 250 years of an historic experiment in freedom – unless Americans across the nation say no – now.
