The Principles of Freedom vs. Public/Private Partnerships-CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
www.canadafreepress.com/ ^ | August 15, 2007 | Tom DeWeese,

Posted on 08/19/2007 9:05:41 AM PDT by B4Ranch

Property Rights activist and ranger, Wayne Hage said, "Either you have the right to own property or you are property." The backbone of the plan was a call for "public/private partnerships."

Sustainable Development is not freedom. Not one of the three principles apply.

Here is how Henry Kissinger described NAFTA in July, 1993: "It will represent the most creative step toward a new world order taken by any group of countries since the end of the Cold War, and the first step toward an even larger vision of a free-trade zone for the entire Western Hemisphere. [NAFTA] is not a conventional trade agreement, but the architecture of a new international system."

Hidden in plain sight.

I have to wonder if too few will read this in it's entirety. Lot's of good info there.

Instead, it's done incrementally, a piece at a time, in an easy to disguise program here - a suggestion there.

Ping to post 3.

My parents always detested Kissinger, but I never really knew why exactly. Now whenever I see Kissinger's quotes, I shudder.

I was thinking of something I posted the other day which is touched upon within the article.
And they are buying control of the nation's highway systems through PPPs with state departments of transportation.
Because of a public/private partnership, one million Texans are about to lose their land for the Trans Texas Corridor, a highway that couldn't be built without the power of eminent domain.

That old Hegelian Dialect at work again.
You want roads to be toll roads controlled by foreign companies.
You neglect roads and bridges so that they eventually fail and/or fall into disrepair.
You take advantage of a serious failure/accident to further implement your end goal.
Surprise, surprise, surprise.

Add the 2007 EPA Scientific Report too

http://cfpub.epa.gov/ncea/cfm/recordisplay.cfm?deid=140917

It is long. But in a nutshell, humans have basically been listed as contaminents. Not just morons that dump garbage on the ground. Our skin tissues.

That is pretty damn scary since a large population of these EPAers are SDS and have executive powers.

Hidden in plain sight.

Same for the architect of the NAU, Robert the traitor Pastor, who says,

the aim of achieving a wider Community in North America, one that respects the differences among peoples and nation-states and encourages experimentation among groups or states, but also one that provides incentives to approach collective problems with a common approach

'Reinventing government' is an experimentation of a nation-state, under GHW Bush, Bill Clinton and GW Bush, to encourage the new order. We are but a 'member state' in a hemispheric collective, not a nation among nations when they achieve their goals.

I don’t think Clinton was the architect of Agenda 21 (short script for 2010). I thought that was WAY before Clinton? Back in WW2 when Aryan was changed to European? And the Trusts and foundations were created to hide assets?

No he wasn’t. But he used the EPA to introduce Agenda 21, via the executive branch, through the recommendations of the ‘President’s Council on Sustainable Development’.

GW Bush has become a master of using the executive office to circumvent constitutional government.

The Principles of Freedom vs. Public/Private Partnerships

PART ONE: TWO WAY PARTNERSHIPS

PART TWO: CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

“Since 1994, under NAFTA, the U.S. trade deficit has soared and now approaches $1 trillion per year. The U.S. has lost some 1.5 million jobs and real wages in the U.S. have fallen significantly.”

Bottom line!

There are all sorts of little pearls in these articles. I liked this one:
NAFTA, under close examination appears to be little more than a redistribution of the wealth scheme. Profiting from it are a few select corporations, which get wealthy in their elite partnerships with government while American jobs, industry and wealth get redistributed to other nations.
And this one:
PPPs are one of the reasons many people find they can no longer fight city hall. The private companies gain the power of government to do as they please - and the governments earn the independence of the companies, no longer needing to answer to voters. It's the perfect partnership. But it's not freedom.

Such a process allows the private companies to be little more than government-sanctioned monopolies, answerable to no one. Their power is awesome and near absolute. Some call such policy corporatism. Another term would be corporate fascism.

Arnie is on the verge of pushing some $50+ billion in "Public Private Partnerships" for Transportation and Flood Control programs in California. Hopefully, the electorate and our State legislators will wake up before that.

In fact, that Spanish-American partnership in Texas and its lease with the Texas Department of Transportation to build and run the Trans Texas Corridor contains a "no-compete" clause which prohibits anyone, including the Texas government from building new highways or expanding exiting ones which might run in competition with the TCC.

That is not free enterprise. And it's not protecting the second principle of freedom - private property.

With inside information from its own Public/Private Partnership, Kansas City Southern Railroad (KCSR) has been able to grow overnight from a two-bit belt around Kansas City to controlling a 2,600-mile artery from Lazaro Cardenas to Kansas City, straight up the Trans Texas Corridor. KCSR has obtained the rail rights up the corridor. It is now a government-sanctioned monopoly.

Protected from competition, the railroad will set the costs and the shipping rules ...

FYI--Long but worthwhile.

These public/private partnerships are sneaking their way into the courts.

A lazy, money hungry judiciary and frivolous lawsuits are driving these 501(c)tax-exempt corporations (i.e., “nonprofit” private mediation services) that are soon to be secret star chambers of judicial decisions so the lawyers can hide themselves away from accountability...

Trading an educated non criminal employee who has a $50 an hour job for a $7 an hr criminal employee who doesn’t speak English, with no medical, who is a drain on society due to his entire families lack of education. That’s not a good trade.

If you say so.

So you can prove that all 25 million jobs created since NAFTA went to illegals?

Protected from competition, the railroad will set the costs and the shipping rules. And it will get very rich, no matter the quality of service. All because of whom its owner knows. Ayn Rand called it the power of pull. That is not free enterprise.

At an April, 2007 meeting in Calgary, Canada, as part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership, government officials, business leaders and academics met to discuss redistributing Canada's water to Mexico and the U.S. Southwest.

Canada has water, lots of it, and the public/private partnerships of the SPP are swarming on it like locusts as they seek to drain it out of Canada's rivers and lakes and ship it to potential profit centers south of the Canadian border.

The Trans Texas Corridor will provide water pipelines for the shipping and PPPs will buy up the rights and dispose of the water as they see fit.

Thanks again for the pings, Cal, BQ, and hedgie. Sorry if my ping is a repeat....but this ENTIRE article is a MUST READ!

To expand on that, I would like to point out something troubling.

Many states are involved with sales (or ‘monetization’) of their toll roads.

The recent bridge collapse has had a ripple effect I’ve not seen anyone explore.

Our state, who is also involved with a toll road monetization project, has ordered review of all our bridges for safety.

Of course, our state has no money to fix these bridges.

The toll road monetization plans has non-compete clauses.

These non-compete clauses protects the sold roads from competition. Exactly like the railroad example you just posted.

My guess is, the recent bridge collapse will probably perminently shut down all the access roads except for the sold roads.

And, the road sales are for toll roads. That means, if more access is needed other than the already established roads, a toll will just go up on it.
