Skip to comments.Now Cheney chimes in: Ain't no superhighways
Posted on 07/30/2007 2:55:25 AM PDT by Man50D
Despite evidence to the contrary, Vice President Dick Cheney says there is no "secret plan" to create a continent-crossing superhighway to help facilitate a merger of the United States, Mexico and Canada.
"The administration is not engaged in a secret plan to create a 'NAFTA super highway,'" asserts Cheney in a recent letter to a constituent, according to a copy of the message obtained by WND.
The vice president's letter quotes an Aug. 21 statement from the U.S. Department of Transportation that, "The concept of a super highway has been around since the early 1990s, usually in the form of a claim that the U.S. Department of Transportation is going to designate such a highway."
DOT then refutes the claim, stating, "The Department of Transportation has never had the statutory authority to designate a NAFTA super highway and has never sought such authority."
The DOT statement then retracts the absolute nature of that statement, qualifying that, "The Department of Transportation will continue to cooperate with the State transportation departments in the I-35 corridor as they upgrade this vital interstate highway to meet 21st century needs. However, these efforts are the routine activities of a Department that cooperates with all the state transportation departments to improve the Nation's intermodal transportation network."
The DOT statement cited by the vice president seems to model the denial recently fashioned by the North America's SuperCorridor Coalition, Inc., or NASCO, on its website.

this IS b.s. because i have talked to a transportion industry master planner who is involved in one of the phases and has one of the feasibility contracts
wtf, cheney is no different than ANY of them!
you guys are paranoid. Highways don’t creates political mergers
Sad reality should be setting in to a lot people by now. We no longer have a government at any level that is 'for the people'
hey read between the lines....for instance between the lines of the amnesty bill Bush tried to foist upon us...
Notice he said "There is no secret plan". That would be true. The plan is not a secret. All we need to do is watch what is happening. We have a government, both R's and D's involved, that supports illegal entry and does not enforce the laws.
In fact, they do all they can to support illegal lawbreakers against the will of US citizens. We have mexican trucks ready to roll over US turf unchecked. We have NO border fence, it is unlikly we will, after all Chertoff says it can't get done until 2013.
Bush gave 20 million to aids in Africa, but we can't get the funding for a fence.
Bush gave 20 BILLION (not million) to aids in Africa, but we can’t get the funding for a fence.
Sorry, I guess I gave him a break. You are correct.
We could have used a little of that for the fence.
Thanks for pointing out my gaffe.
Will any of the top dogs come out and say - Yeah we want millions of raw Mexicans/Cent Americans to flood in here because my corporate masters demand it. And damn right we want cheap Mexican trucks for them too, crisscrossing our highways! And right you are we want superhighways connecting us to shit holes like Mexico to bring more Chinese crap in here cheaper even though it widens our trade deficit which has been sinking our US Dollar recently!
I don’t give a shit because I’m hedged in gold and commodities and live in a guarded gated community
But political mergers do create Highways --- especially NASCO Superhighways.
Just Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. Sneaky......
On July 24, Hunter's amendment passed 362 to 63, with strong bipartisan support. Later, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3074 by a margin of 268-153. The bill has been sent to the Senate with Hunter's amendment included.
Duncan Hunter is the man!
Ask an EU resident where ‘trade agreements’ lead.
IMO, Duncan Hunter is really an appealing candidate...he is on the right side of so many Conservative issues.
Can his campaign get some of the oxygen that is leaving the RG, JMc and FT following?
Explain yourself MiSTER
No sane person believes that our government is actually trying to merge the US with Canada and Mexico. This conspiracy is as whacked out as the 9/11 conspiracies.
Many in Congress seem to think we’re headed in that direction.
