What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America is the latest attempt to promote a sovereignty-supressing one-world government. The SPP will erase our borders with Canada and Mexico. Wait, what’s that? You haven’t heard of the SPP? You haven’t seen anything in the news?
And you think that’s an accident?
The SPP was a joint venture between President Bush, Mexico President Fox, and then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin. The three met on March 23, 2005 in Waco, Texas (and we all know how much good stuff happens in Waco…). There they formed this partnership between the three North American countries, and labeled it the SPP. There was no Congressional oversight. There was no Executive order. There was no legislation. There was no treaty, no law. No authority, whatsoever.
Instead, there was a press release stating their intentions. But the press release (surprisingly—well, not so surprisingly) wasn’t covered in the media. Nobody knew about it.
From the above linked article:
Evidently using this quasi-press release as legal justification, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) has proceeded to organize extensive “working groups,” drawing freely from the executive branch. These SPP working groups are housed under the auspices of the SPP program in the NAFTA office, as directed by Geri Word, a DOC administrator.
One year after the SPP was formed, these “working groups” reported back to their DOC leaders on the year’s progress. From the report:
On March 23, 2005, you announced the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America. At that time, you instructed Ministers to create an architecture which would further enhance the security of North America while at the same time promote the economic well-being of our citizens and position North America to face and meet future challenges.
Did you know that you had Ministers in America? Neither did I. These are not elected officials. They do not represent you. And while on your payroll, they do not answer to you.
To make North America secure for the future, we need integrated, coordinated and seamless measures in place at, within, and beyond our borders…
Goodbye, borders! Goodbye, sovereignty!
To make North America prosperous for the future, we need to improve the efficiency of the movement of people, goods and services crossing our borders. We must remove barriers to trade, investment, research and education. We must protect our environment and promote the health and safety of our people.
Hello, one-continent (and later one-world) government!
You think that’s an exaggeration? You think that perhaps I am reading too much into this? Please note the following:
- NASCO is planning, structuring, and enhancing an “International Mid-Continent Trade and Transportation Corridor, Secure Multi-Modal Transportation System”. In lay terms, they’re developing and implementing a super-highway to connect all three continents together for open transportation, commerce, trade, and trafficking.
- About one year after the SPP was formed (in an eventual effort to eradicate our borders), President Bush addressed the nation in a broadcast on May 15, 2006. He talked about securing the border. He talked about sending troops (very few of which are there yet). These troops can only “help” (i.e. build stuff, and tattle-tale on illegal immigrants they encounter), but not “enforce”. What he was proposing and claiming to do is in almost direct contradiction to the promise he had made the previous year to the leaders of Canada and Mexico in the SPP.
- Kansas City, the inner port for the Trans-American highway, will most likely soon contain a Mexico Customs Facility on Mexican sovereign soil. Not an embassy on sovereign soil – a customs facility. Paid by Kansas City. Our tax dollars, hard at work for Mexico. In an email sent by Chris Gutierrez, President of the Kansas City Smart Port, he says he wants to keep the issue out of public scrutiny, for fear of the project being destroyed if the public were to find out.
Further, this article points out several key issues of note:
The membership of the working groups has not been published, nor has their work product been disclosed, despite two years of massive effort within the executive branches of the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
So not only are they on our payroll, and are unelected officials with executive authority, but we’re not allowed to know what they do, what their progress is, or what they plan to do next.
Geri Word, who heads the SPP office within the NAFTA office of the U.S. Department of Commerce affirmed to [World Net Daily] last Friday in a telephone interview that the membership of the working groups, as well as their work products, have not been published anywhere, including on the Internet.
Why the secrecy?
“We did not want to get the contact people of the working groups distracted by calls from the public,” said Word.
Didn’t want them to be distracted? By the people they actually work for??? Pathetic. A boldface lie, if you ask me.
Many SPP working groups appear to be working toward achieving specific objectives as defined by a May 2005 Council on Foreign Relations 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.
What the *#&!$??? A North American Union? What happened to the U.S.A.?
The CFR task force report called for establishment of a common security border perimeter around North America by 2010, along with free movement of people, commerce and capital within North America, facilitated by the development 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 report were 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.
Holy freaking crap. This just keeps getting worse and worse. You read it right: Under the SPP, a North American Union would be established, developing 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”.
Here’s yet another scary thing. What happens to our Supreme Court’s supreme authority when we now have a North American Union with a superceding government? Just as the ridiculous U.N. seeks to impose its “higher” laws and mandates on our sovereign country, so it will happen with this proposed union.
Henry Kissinger, speaking about NAFTA (a precursor to the SPP) in the L.A. Times said: “What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system…a first step toward a new world order.”
Ladies and Gents, this is no issue to be taken lightly. We will be losing our sovereignty and identity as a free, independent nation. Your tax dollars will be used heavily on Mexican and Canadian citizens, to improve their lifestyle, economic status, and living conditions. We have and will have more “Ministers”, who are unnamed, unelected, and un-Constitutional. We will have no borders. We will have no U.S.A as established by the Founding Fathers.
This scares me. It is alarming (yet not too surprising) that it has not received the media attention it should. This information needs to be made more public. More people need to become aware of the negative impact of the SPP on our economy and sovereignty, and speak up and take action to oppose it.
There are many other links, articles, quotes, and facts that I could cite, but this post has already gone on too long. I’ll leave it up to the informed and proactive reader to find out more – feel free to email/comment with any questions.
White House Press Release, dated March 31, 2006
UPDATE: The Government has released some pertinent documents in a Freedom of Information Act request that indicate the progress of this ridiculous venture.
