North America’s SuperCorridor {Immigration Reform will never happen}
http://www.nascocorridor.com ^ | N.A.S.C.O.

Posted on 06/19/2006 2:58:46 PM PDT by ATOMIC_PUNK

North America’s SuperCorridor Coalition, Inc., is a non-profit organization 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.

The NASCO Corridor encompasses Interstate Highways 35, 29 and 94, and the significant east/west connectors to those highways in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The Corridor directly impacts the continental trade flow of North America. Membership includes public and private sector entities along the Corridor in Canada, the United States and Mexico.

From the largest border crossing in North America (The Ambassador Bridge in Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Canada), to the second largest border crossing of Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, extending to the deep water Ports of Manzanillo and Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico and to Manitoba, Canada, the impressive, tri-national NASCO membership truly reflects the international scope of the Corridor and the regions it impacts.

NASCO has officially amalgamated with the former North American International Trade Corridor Partnership, which was a non profit organization in Mexico dedicated to economic development and improving trade relations through the heartland of America to Canada and Mexico. NASCO and the NAITCP have worked together successfully in the past, and now, with the amalgamation, will operate as one organization under the name NASCO, with a shared mission and objectives.

The North American Inland Port Network (NAIPN), a sub-committee of NASCO, has been tasked with developing an active inland port network along our corridor to specifically alleviate congestion at maritime ports and our nation’s borders. The NAIPN envisions an integrated, efficient and secure network of inland ports specializing in the transportation of containerized cargo in North America. The main guiding principal of the NAIPN is to develop logistics systems that enhance global security, but at the same time do not impede the cost-effective and efficient flow of goods.

NASCO has received $2.5 million in earmarks from the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) for the development of a technology and tracking project. The project will have a team approach, using members of NASCO as the primary participants in the project, to the extent possible. NASCO believes the deployment of a modern information system will reduce the cost, improve the efficiency, reduce trade-related congestion, and enhance security of cross-border and corridor information, trade and traffic.

Nope, but they have already decided upon breaking the US into regions with regional governors. Looks like doing it by creating artificial borders, i.e., roadways is quite efficient.

Our soverignty was betrayed by the Bush dynasty a long time ago -- Clinton is just a parasite trying to play it for all he can (what is new, right?). Look at CAFTA, NAFTA, all the "free trade" ruse. You will find more disgusting betrayal.

wait now it's 2020?

Damn they keep pushing the year back.

According to head nut Jerome Corsi, the "Amero" was supposed to come around 2010 to 2013.

This is more of the same.

I wonder, how that Rush and Ingraham are getting into it, how quickly WND or Corsi will back off of it.

And yes I STILL have jobs available if you want something in the NAU (since I've been accused of being someone who would profit by it for whatever reason, I've promoted myself to foreman)....

"Smart" freight corridors do not necessarily equate to no border security as long as we reserve the right to inspect any and all of it, and have it run by US citizens within our borders.

But we certainly better see physical border security first. We won't be distracted by flag burning amendments, gay-marraige bans, or even success in Iraq. We certainly won't stand for "you only get border security if you also take guest workers and smart freight corridors" either.

There is a 1950s or 1960s Science Fiction series of stories based on patroling these sorts of "Super Interstates". Despite them talking about this for more then 40 years, have you seen them break ground on even one yet?

It's not trade I'm concerned about it's the Sovereignty of our nation Canada isn't what you would call Conservative and Mexico is socialistic were stuck in the middle having to cater to both over our sovereignty and having to fight socialism at the same time socialized medicine or even socialized societies won't and don't go hand in hand with Freedom you want to trade your Capitalist Freedom for socialist [Freedom]? I for one don't !

And how about the America's going to a currency such as the euro i guess thats OK too ?

Maybe this is the reason that the Democrats have no plan because their plans are already in the works all they have to do is sit back and watch it happen

You don't have to fight for anything when your future is cast by you adversary and he's hiding behind a wall of secrecy do you ?

Our Troops are Fighting for Freedom and our Polititions are giving it away ?

or in the early 1900s, he'd be ranting against the invention of the car.....

It looks and appears to be an agreement on trade between friendly nations.

I know the protectionists are screaming about it, but of course they would, being that they want the world to go into a depression again (ala 1929).

Oh well.

Like I said, what are they going to do? Whine and complain on the internet and NOTHING will EVER happen.

Just my 1/50 dollar.

Why don't we let them build it. Then close all the NORTHBOUND lanes.

"Superhighway to Deportation" we'll call it!

Cheers!

Bush Administration Quietly Plans NAFTA Super Highway

by Jerome R. Corsi
Posted Jun 12, 2006

Quietly but systematically, the Bush Administration is advancing the plan to build a huge NAFTA Super Highway, four football-fields-wide, through the heart of the U.S. along Interstate 35, from the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., to the Canadian border north of Duluth, Minn.

 

Once complete, the new road will allow containers from the Far East to enter the United States through the Mexican port of Lazaro Cardenas, bypassing the Longshoreman’s Union in the process. The Mexican trucks, without the involvement of the Teamsters Union, will drive on what will be the nation’s most modern highway straight into the heart of America. The Mexican trucks will cross border in FAST lanes, checked only electronically by the new “SENTRI” system. The first customs stop will be a Mexican customs office in Kansas City, their new Smart Port complex, a facility being built for Mexico at a cost of $3 million to the U.S. taxpayers in Kansas City.

As incredible as this plan may seem to some readers, the first Trans-Texas Corridor segment of the NAFTA Super Highway is ready to begin construction next year. Various U.S. government agencies, dozens of state agencies, and scores of private NGOs (non-governmental organizations) have been working behind the scenes to create the NAFTA Super Highway, despite the lack of comment on the plan by President Bush. The American public is largely asleep to this key piece of the coming “North American Union” that government planners in the new trilateral region of United States, Canada and Mexico are about to drive into reality.

Just examine the following websites to get a feel for the magnitude of NAFTA Super Highway planning that has been going on without any new congressional legislation directly authorizing the construction of the planned international corridor through the center of the country.

  • NASCO, the North America SuperCorridor Coalition Inc., is a “non-profit organization 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.” Where does that sentence say anything about the USA? Still, NASCO has received $2.5 million in earmarks from the U.S. Department of Transportation to plan the NAFTA Super Highway as a 10-lane limited-access road (five lanes in each direction) plus passenger and freight rail lines running alongside pipelines laid for oil and natural gas. One glance at the map of the NAFTA Super Highway on the front page of the NASCO website will make clear that the design is to connect Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. into one transportation system.

  • Kansas City SmartPort Inc. is an “investor based organization supported by the public and private sector” to create the key hub on the NAFTA Super Highway. At the Kansas City SmartPort, the containers from the Far East can be transferred to trucks going east and west, dramatically reducing the ground transportation time dropping the containers off in Los Angeles or Long Beach involves for most of the country. A brochure on the SmartPort website describes the plan in glowing terms: “For those who live in Kansas City, the idea of receiving containers nonstop from the Far East by way of Mexico may sound unlikely, but later this month that seemingly far-fetched notion will become a reality.”

  • The U.S. government has housed within the Department of Commerce (DOC) an “SPP office” that is dedicated to organizing the many working groups laboring within the executive branches of the U.S., Mexico and Canada to create the regulatory reality for the Security and Prosperity Partnership. The SPP agreement was signed by Bush, President Vicente Fox, and then-Prime Minister Paul Martin in Waco, Tex., on March 23, 2005. According to the DOC website, a U.S.-Mexico Joint Working Committee on Transportation Planning has finalized a plan such that “(m)ethods for detecting bottlenecks on the U.S.-Mexico border will be developed and low cost/high impact projects identified in bottleneck studies will be constructed or implemented.” The report notes that new SENTRI travel lanes on the Mexican border will be constructed this year. The border at Laredo should be reduced to an electronic speed bump for the Mexican trucks containing goods from the Far East to enter the U.S. on their way to the Kansas City SmartPort.

  • The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is overseeing the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC) as the first leg of the NAFTA Super Highway. A 4,000-page environmental impact statement has already been completed and public hearings are scheduled for five weeks, beginning next month, in July 2006. The billions involved will be provided by a foreign company, Cintra Concessions de Infraestructuras de Transporte, S.A. of Spain. As a consequence, the TTC will be privately operated, leased to the Cintra consortium to be operated as a toll-road.

The details of the NAFTA Super Highway are hidden in plan view. Still, Bush has not given speeches to bring the NAFTA Super Highway plans to the full attention of the American public. Missing in the move toward creating a North American Union is the robust public debate that preceded the decision to form the European Union. All this may be for calculated political reasons on the part of the Bush Administration.

A good reason Bush does not want to secure the border with Mexico may be that the administration is trying to create express lanes for Mexican trucks to bring containers with cheap Far East goods into the heart of the U.S., all without the involvement of any U.S. union workers on the docks or in the trucks.

Lobbying efforts have helped secure more than $150 million in corridor transportation project funding to date

$150 million? That's about the cost of ONE bridge over a major river! Tip money on Capitol Hill!

Jocelyn Elders could get more money than that to teach the Democratic Party how to ... well, you know. And that's teaching them something they already do!

Bush Administration fingerprints all over this one, eh? John Dobson Foundation? David Somerville Chair? Fraser Institute? Simon Fraser University? Writer is past mandatory retirement?

We don't need to go to the Fraser Institute to find doddering clueless old fools -- we have them right on Capitol Hill (Murtha, Byrd, Kennedy, etc.) Endowments like this are designed to give an old guy a few bucks to enhance his golden years. Nobody actually reads this nonsense or takes it seriesly -- at least, nobody is supposed to.

Actually I'm showing disdain for the idea that $150 million in funding for a road will bring down the country. $150 million won't even pay for the road.

There's a hugh and series difference between wasting $150 million (reprehensible but unimportant compared to wate in the ten of billions elsewhere) and destroying the country. Then again, obliterating any sense of proportion is necessary to sell whack conspiracy theories, isn't it?

$150 million for a highway from Laredo to Duluth -- that road won't be fit for Mexican trucks.

I guess that $150 million could fund more endowments for academics to devise strategeries to bring the USA to its knees!

Is that 150 million in dollars or Ameros BTW?

Well its is about trade and economic prosepects on both sides of the border. This is a simple fact. There will be no political merging of the three countries. Such an agreement would never never pass the senate. That is likely as to happen as the congress repealing univeral suffurage. Furthermore for many of Mexico's problems they do have a strong nationalistic streak. Theyu would never vote to be engulfed by the USA. Further, would Canada give up all their socialist goodies to merge? I think not.

This is a effort to lower trade barriers that will benifit us all

If you're so sure this is the case then why was there such opposition in Europe over passing the new EU constitution a few months ago? Wasn't the concept of the European Union SUPPOSED to be just about creating better trade prospects for that region?......think just maybe some folks figured out the promises of greater free trade was just a bait and switch to create a new political entity at the expense of national sovereignty?

So protecting France from Germany was not the reason for the EU? Don't know much about history, do you?

It was sold to the people and countries as a great new trading bloc to compete in the global market and some people woke up in time to see it for what it really was......an end run on national sovereignty. Hopefully, enough folks in this country will wake up in time to see the NAU for what it really is also.......maybe with some stroke of luck you'll be included.

Another plan.

As long as it advances trade, is handled properly by the federal government, and does not trample on any of the rights of the U.S. or its citizens, I have no problem with it.

Nope, but they have already decided upon breaking the US into regions with regional governors.

With all due respect, this is Art Bell stuff.

A crock.

It looks and appears to be an agreement on trade between friendly nations.

That's all it is, but we have otherwise sane people stating, in public for all to read, that regional governors will be appointed over the United States.

These last few days illustrate that there is a conspiratorial mindset entirely separate from intellectual prowess.

In other words, smart people can be goofy, too.

"Missing in the move toward creating a North American Union is the robust public debate that preceded the decision to form the European Union. All this may be for calculated political reasons on the part of the Bush Administration."

Missing is right. Remember, it's our good ol' federal government at work here. You know, the government that doesn't think the American people have a say in such matters.

"A good reason Bush does not want to secure the border with Mexico may be that the administration is trying to create express lanes for Mexican trucks..."

As the Bush administration is now discovering, there is no good reason for not securing the borders.

I hope they're all getting very nervous, knowing that they could be looking for new jobs very soon.

All I can say about the person in the White House is that history will not be kind to him because he has turned his back on America.
