North American Union Summit Meeting Just About Jelly Beans and Chocolate?
This week's Security and Prosperity Partnership summit has ended and the peoples of Canada, Mexico and the U.S. have no more information as to what the discussions on "harmonizations" were about than when it started.
There were substantial demonstrations against this meeting to firm up of what is also called the North American Union (NAU). Although the ongoing efforts to establish the NAU have lasted for multi-years, the significance of the meetings was downplayed.
President Bush said he was “amused by some of the speculation” and dismissed it as “political scare tactics” centered on “conspiracy theories”. Of course, if there is a conspiracy, the primary rule is not to tell anybody!
Canada’s Harper tried to downplay the importance of an annual meeting that has taken place three years by saying:
“The rules for jelly bean contents are different in Canada and the United States…Is the sovereignty of Canada going to fall apart if we standardize the jelly bean? I don’t think so”. This ignores the importance of a three country summit by the heads of state of each country, plus many cabinet secretary summits, plus nineteen working groups.
Mexico’s Calderon also offered the sweet explanation that the summit was about “parameters for chocolates”.
Now we can all breathe a sigh of relief. The top people of three countries have made them safe for candy.
Behind all this sweet talk, however, is what Lou Dobbs calls “commerce at all costs”. He comments on the “departments of ministries” that have been working behind closed doors. He says that the lack of oversight of the Bush administration’s executive department by the U.S. Congress is “unconscionable”.
Lou Dobbs has been almost alone in the TV news media to consistently point out the dangers of NAFTA, CAFTA, other “free trade” agreements, and now the NAU. He connects the dots for his viewers between these agreements and the NAU.
Patrick Wood of The August Review points out how unpopular a One World Order is in the countries either now affected by it, as in the European Union, or are likely to be affected by it. He reports on a FT/Harris Poll of July 22, 2007:
“According to the FT article:
‘The depth of anti-globalization feeling in the Ft/Harris poll, which surveyed more than 1,000 people online in each of the six countries will dismay policy-makers and corporate executives. Their view that opening economies to free trade is beneficial to poor and rich countries alike is not shared by the citizens of rich countries, regardless of their liberal economic traditions.’”
The poll showed that less than 20% of citizen respondents in the U.K., France, Spain and the U.S. viewed it as having a positive effect, with Italy and Germany being a little higher.
Some in the U.S. Congress have taken notice of the massive concentration by members of cabinet members on the SPP. Representative Duncan Hunter, a presidential candidate, has offered an amendment to the Transportation Appropriations Act which would prohibit the use of federal funds for the purpose of participation of working groups under the Security and Prosperity Partnership.
Hunter is also worried about a 12 lane highway under construction in Texas. This monstrous highway, according to Hunter, “….will fast track thousands of cargo containers across the U.S. without adequate security. These containers will move from Mexico, a country with a record of corruption and involvement in the drug trade, across a border that is already porous and insufficiently protected”.
Because the meetings concerning the SPP have been secret, it is natural for people to be suspicious. Talking about the “harmonizing” of rules about jelly beans and chocolate does not satisfy a free people, who are owed transparency.
Such side-stepping leads to the asking of questions posed by Dr. Daneen Peterson, Ph.D. On her website StoptheNorthAmericanUnion.com, Dr. Peterson asks:
“What IS Happening to America? Have You Ever Pondered The Following:
Didn’t you ever wonder why our borders are still wide open?
Didn’t you ever wonder why our immigration laws are unenforced?
Didn’t you ever wonder why CAFTA was passed in the House by two recanted votes after the time for voting had expired? Especially in light of the fact that most ordinary people would agree that NAFTA has been such a devastating failure for both Mexico and America.
Didn’t you ever wonder why the Senate told 83% of We the People to ‘go to hell’ when they passed the amnesty bill S.2611 which will add 100 million people to America in the next ten years according to Dr. Robert Rector of the Heritage Institute. That number is a CONSERVATIVE estimate since statisticians extrapolated those numbers from the 2000 census to arrive at the totally bogus figures of 10-12 million illegals.
Didn’t you ever wonder why the reconquista rabble can march in our streets and shout from the roof tops that they want to take over the Southwest and our government doesn’t investigate them for sedition like they did the VA nurse who wrote a letter to the editor complaining about the Iraq War, and the government’s handling of Hurricane Katrina.
Good questions all, but none answered by people we have elected to serve us.
Instead, we get silly remarks about “harmonizing” our regulations on jelly beans and chocolate. If that is all three heads of state are deciding, after three summit meetings, after many meetings among cabinet level government servants, we are wasting time and money and destroying the trust of We the People.
