North American union plan headed to Congress in fall
Powerful think tank prepares report on benefits of integration between U.S., Mexico, Canada
Posted: May 24, 2007
WASHINGTON A powerful think tank chaired by former Sen. Sam Nunn and guided by trustees including Richard Armitage, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Harold Brown, William Cohen and Henry Kissinger, is in the final stages of preparing a report to the White House and U.S. Congress on the benefits of integrating the U.S., Mexico and Canada into one political, economic and security bloc.
The final report, published in English, Spanish and French, is scheduled for submission to all three governments by Sept. 30, according to the Center for Strategic & International Studies.
CSIS boasts of playing a large role in the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994 a treaty that set in motion a political movement many believe resembles the early stages of the European Community on its way to becoming the European Union.
"The results of the study will enable policymakers to make sound, strategic, long-range policy decisions about North America, with an emphasis on regional integration," explains Armand B. Peschard-Sverdrup, director of CSIS' Mexico Project. "Specifically, the project will focus on a detailed examination of future scenarios, which are based on current trends, and involve six areas of critical importance to the trilateral relationship: labor mobility, energy, the environment, security, competitiveness and border infrastructure and logistics."
The data collected for the report is based on seven secret roundtable sessions involving between 21 and 45 people and conducted by CSIS. The participants are politicians, business people, labor leaders and academics from all three countries with equal representation.
All of this is described in a CSIS report, "North American Future 2025 Project."
"The free flow of people across national borders will undoubtedly continue throughout the world as well as in North America, as will the social, political and economic challenges that accompany this trend," says the report. "In order to remain competitive in the global economy, it is imperative for the twenty-first century North American labor market to possess the flexibility necessary to meet industrial labor demands on a transitional basis and in a way that responds to market forces."
As WND reported last week, the controversial "Secure Borders, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Reform Act of 2007," which would grant millions of illegal aliens the right to stay in the U.S. under certain conditions, contains provisions for the acceleration of the Security and Prosperity Partnership, a plan for North American economic and defense integration with remarkable similarities to the CSIS plan.
The bill, as worked out by Senate and White House negotiators, cites the SPP agreement signed by President Bush and his counterparts in Mexico and Canada March 23, 2005 an agreement that has been criticized as a blueprint for building a European Union-style merger of the three countries of North America.
"It is the sense of Congress that the United States and Mexico should accelerate the implementation of the Partnership for Prosperity to help generate economic growth and improve the standard of living in Mexico, which will lead to reduced migration," the draft legislation states on page 211 on the version time-stamped May 18, 2007 11:58 p.m.
Since agreement on the major provisions of the bill was announced late last week, a firestorm of opposition has ignited across the country. Senators and representatives are reporting heavy volumes of phone calls and e-mails expressing outrage with the legislation they believe represents the largest "amnesty" program ever contemplated by the federal government.
Meanwhile, while many continue to express skepticism about a plot to integrate North America along the lines of the European Union, WND reported last week that 14 years ago, one of world's most celebrated economists and management experts said it was already on the fast track and nothing could stop it.
Peter F. Drucker, in one of his dozens of best-selling books, "Post Capitalist Society," published in 1993, wrote that the European Community, the progenitor of the European Union, "triggered the attempt to create a North American economic community, built around the United States but integrating both Canada and Mexico into a common market."
"So far this attempt is purely economic in its goal," wrote the Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree. "But it can hardly remain so in the long run."
Drucker describes in his book the worldwide trends toward globalization that were evident back then the creation and empowerment of transnational organizations and institutions, international environmental goals regarding carbon dioxide and agreements to fight terrorism long before 9/11.
The FReeper that adds the keyword cuespookymusic to threads about this subject needs to get to work.
Anyone know if Bush is a Republican or a Democrat?
And guess who will be paying for it all ...
He’s neither... he’s a globalist
Yeah, I’m feeling ill right about now.
equalizing wage and salary structure in the continent.
That is, wage depression here.
Henry Kissinger - the dillhole who sold-out the Republic of Viet Nam and helped to degrade America’s prestige abroad.
It’s PC nonsense that they’re trying to equate Canada with Mexico. US business is already very intermingled with Canadian business, because it’s less problematic in many ways. As for labor, English-speaking, same-culture workers are less expensive for our nation in several ways.
A one - two knock out punch. One immigration “reform”, two a NAU “agreement” of couse the “agreement” will over turn all the “enforcement” in the “reform”. Looks like us tin folders were right all along. The picture is so clear now I think even the koolade drinkers can see it. Somebody get a rope.
We have been sold out by both the Republicans and The Democrats for the bottom line. Many good jobs are being sent overseas. The jobs here are slowly being filled by illegal aliens to keep wages down. The United States will no longer be the United States of America, but the United States of Latin America. Kiss our great nation goodbye...
What difference does it make what party he belongs to? He's a traitor! He's selling us down the river and there are members in our Congress who are helping him! We've got a real bad situation on our hands, and it's going to be difficult to stop the treasonous bast*rds! Their arrogance is unbelievable!
I am wondering is it Possible that Free Republic will take down the W links. I could care less for this guy. Keep in mind I voted for him twice. He has sold out our great nation.
And Medved was calling all the NAU conspiracy people nuts and crazies... Somebody email him this report.
When did we adopt Mexico? I don’t ever remember agreeing to be responsible for their economic well-being-—and I won’t EVER agree to such.
This globalization foolishness has already gone too far. If you speak to most Europeans candidly, they HATE the European Union. If nothing else, they feel as if they’ve lost their national identity.
People in this country are already frustrated. They feel as if the government does not listen or respond to them. Can you imagine what it would be like if the country were, roughly, three times larger?
You forgot about the money....No say good bye to this ......stuff
Don’t forget the choice for Chair of the 9/11 Commission. Also, he has evaded the spotlight (what people care of it) of the Lord Black/ Hollinger scam. Another 9/11 associate is involved in Hollinger and some other scams (Ullico/Global Crossing) behind him...Former Illinois Gov. Jim Thompson.
you are right. The effort by Congress and the President is very very very destructive to our Republic. It will be balkanized, then globalized. I pray that somehow the dumbed down American electorate awakens to the dark forces trying to destroy our way of life. Evil exists within our government. On Friday, I will once again make many calls and send emails. I am so drained from fighting this nightmare. A nightmare that we all have to pay for through our taxes. Our reward is to be called bigots and worse. Nice. Thanks to our imperial rulers.
And, let’s not forget that within minutes of posting the thread they were ALL moved to ‘chat’. By the looks of some of the posts here, there are STILL freepers around who are pretending to be in ‘denial’, which was all a hoax just to hijack any discussion of the truth! You know, anything not pro-Bush was not to be tolerated by some.
Correction TomGuy: apparently they STILL are being moved to ‘chat’!! LOL...I guess when there is a ‘formal’ Rose Garden announcement, this ‘news’ will be accepted.
“The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failedwhere the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once”.
Judge Alex Kozinsky
At least the Europeans had a chance to vote on it. We won't. Our elected masters will approve it in the middle of the night without any messy debate.
People in this country are already frustrated. They feel as if the government does not listen or respond to them.
Because it doesn't.
Can you imagine what it would be like if the country were, roughly, three times larger?
The elites don't care about what the ordinary peons think. They have their billion dollar trusts and their agendas. The little people will be too busy trying to keep a roof over their heads to make much trouble.
Goodbye sweet America.
That’s FReeper WHO
Has anyone asked the American voter if they want this horseshit? I’m assuming big business and the White House doesn’t care either way what any voter wants....
OMG! The old guard of the Council on Foreign Relations, or “The Stealth Government” are going into overt active mode! Keep an eye on this.
