TX governor rapped for paving way for construction of Trans-Texas Corridor
One News Now ^ | August 24, 2007 | Chad Groening

Posted on 08/25/2007 4:51:06 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Texas Governor Rick Perry is being called to task by an author and investigative journalist for vetoing bills that would have blocked construction of the controversial Trans-Texas Corridor.

Dr. Jerome Corsi has been one of the leading voices warning the American public about the consequences of the Trans-Texas Corridor, which will be part of a superhighway -- purported to be four football fields wide -- that will allow Mexican trucks to enter the U.S. and traverse the core of the country all the way to Canada. The best-selling author asserts that Governor Perry cleared the way for construction to begin in his state when he vetoed several bills passed by the Legislature that would have stalled the project.

"Governor Perry has been 100 percent gung-ho in building this road," says Corsi. "The Legislature voted a two-year moratorium, it voted a redefinition of eminent domain -- [and] Governor Perry vetoed them. [On] at least one of those measures, he waited until the Texas Legislature was out of session so it couldn't even override his veto."

Corsi says it is unfortunate that there has been political pressure to get the project started. "The Federal Highway Administration's lawyer wrote letters threatening the Texas Legislature to cut off federal highway funds if they got in the way of this Trans-Texas Corridor," he says.

Corsi believes the same pressure will be applied on other states, like Oklahoma, to go along with the project. He suggests that would mean a loss of more American jobs and could pose a threat to U.S. sovereignty.

Obviously global warming is the reason for the need for a highway 4 football fields wide to Canada.

The warming of the frozen wastes of Canada will be a magnet for the migration of hundreds of millions of people from the hot lands of the south.

Or maybe Canadians have an overwhelming need for zillions tons of burritos from Mexico.

This is soooo much bigger than GWB...but he has been a tool used to advance the bipartisan CFR/OBL agenda and if you check out the timeline, much progress has been made.

Is it a coincidence that both Canada and Mexico have elected leadership that will continue to advance this agenda?

Which is the U.S. Presidential candidate? Of course there is one.

But one thing is for certain, we KNOW it is neither Duncan Hunter nor Tom Tancredo!!

It's no rumor, and it's more than just Spain which has leases.

Every politician voting on the road should be forced to disclose their investment portfolios, where they have every nickel and dime squirreled away for retirement. You can be sure money is behind this, big money, big business, and anything collateral to building a road...concrete, warehouses, trucking — think about who might prosper initially. A whole lot of somebodies are drooling over the prospect of lining their pockets bigtime. It’s all about greed.

Construction of Highway in Mexico


NASCO Map of Corridor

NASCO Members: United States

The NAFTA Superhighway

Michael Kraft Charlotte Conservative | August 21, 2007

Today the leaders of the three major nations of North America met to discuss a unified North American Union.

Why the president of our nation is looking to set our country back to the pace of our neighbors is beyond me.

President Bush is determined to give away our high quality of life in exchange for a short term underclass.

One of the key elements in this process is the superhighway that will allow for ease of travel from the 51st state (Mexico) through Kansas City to the 52nd state (Canada).

They even have plans for the contract to be given to a spanish construction company. I can only assume this will make it easier to print up the bilingual street signs that would pollute the plains of Kansas.

Bracewell & Giuliani Firm Advises Cintra in First Privatization of Toll Road in Texas

DALLAS (March 1, 2007) Bracewell & Giuliani LLP advised Cintra Concesiones de Infraestructuras de Transporte, S.A., a Spanish transportation company, in its successful bid to develop State Highway 121 into a toll road through Collin and Denton counties.

The award to Cintra, approved by the Texas Transportation Commission, is the first privatization of a Texas toll road. Bracewell is acting as project counsel to Cintra with respect to the 50-year concession from the Texas Department of Transportation. Cintra will pay a $2.1 billion upfront and annual lease payments totaling $700 million. "Cintra was awarded this project because of its proven expertise and competitive proposal," said Thomas O. Moore, partner with Bracewell & Giuliani. "This is the largest transportation deal of 2007. This is one of only five deals in the country."

Three firms have competed for the Comprehensive Development Agreement for State Highway 121 since last summer. The proposals were reviewed and scored based on selection criteria set forth by the Regional Transportation Council, the metropolitan planning agency for the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

This CDA is a public-private partnership that allows the provider to handle all facets of developing the toll road, including completing construction and operating and maintaining the corridor. Cintra, a subsidiary of Grupo Ferrovial specialized in toll roads and car parks, is one of the world's leading private-sector developers of transport infrastructure. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1803916/posts

==========================================

Bracewell & Giuliani Firm Advises Grupo Santander in Acquisition of Leading U.S. Auto Finance Company NEW YORK (September 25, 2006) –Bracewell & Giuliani advised Banco Santander Central Hispano, S.A. (SAN.MC, STD.N) (a bank that traded with blacklisted Iranian Bank) in its agreement to acquire 90 percent of the U.S. auto financing company, Drive Financial Services, for approximately US $651 million.

====================================================

Voters should keep in mind: when Rooty Giuliani campaigns on the Mideast, the WOT and his 9/11 "credentials," Globalist Rooty and his Globalist backers are preparing to profit bigtime off the US government (that's us, the taxpayers).

BACKUP As a PR gimmick, Giuliani recently sold one of the several businesses he is involved in, which revolve around investment banking, global security, and international legal representation.

The Washington Post reported that one of his companies, Giuliani Capital Advisors "was sold for an undisclosed amount as Giuliani was preparing his run for president." The Post article also discloses that Giuliani’s secretive lobbying firm, Giuliani Partners, has made more than $100 million over the last five years and that Giulaini's clients "are required to sign confidentiality agreements, so they do not comment about the work they receive or how much they are paying for it.

Though now running for president, Giuliani refuses to identify his clients, disclose his compensation, or reveal any details about Giuliani Partners. He also declined to be interviewed about the firm."

The paper provided some details, based "on a review of corporate, government and court records, along with scores of interviews with clients and government officials who have interacted with Giuliani Partners."

ALMATY, Kazakhstan -- LAWFUEL - Law News, US Law Firms -- Bracewell & Giuliani LLP closed three cases in January for a total of US $1.625 billion, acting as international counsel for the offering of corporate debt and solidifying their place as the premier legal authority on Kazakhstani business affairs in the Caspian region. “We continue to thrive and grow in Kazakhstan, mirroring the country itself,” said Greg Vojack, managing partner for the firm's offices in Kazakhstan. “As Kazakhstan transitions into a prosperous free marketplace after the fall of Soviet Russia, its fine-tuned monetary policies are helping the country’s financial sectors grow faster than New York.” ~snip~

Established in 1994, Bracewell's presence in the Republic of Kazakhstan has helped clients capture significant opportunities in the Caspian Region. The firm's energy and finance attorneys provided groundbreaking guidance to create the legal and financial infrastructure in that emerging nation and today actively advise energy and financial companies in the region and the government of Kazakhstan. ~snip~

MORE BACKGROUND Giuliani firm has Venezuela ties
MiamiHerald.com | Thu, Mar. 15, 2007 | BETH REINHARD
Posted on 03/15/2007 3:26:41 AM PDT by Condor 63
The law firm headlined by presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani does business with a company tied to Venezuelan leader Hugo Chávez, who has called President Bush ``the devil.'' Bracewell & Giuliani lobbies on behalf of Texas-based Citgo Petroleum, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Venezuelan oil company controlled by Chávez. The Bush administration said last year that Venezuela was ''not cooperating fully'' with antiterrorism efforts, stopping one step short of grouping the country with state sponsors of terrorism like Iran, Syria and Cuba. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor best known for his leadership after the Sept. 11 terrorism attacks, does not personally lobby for Citgo, though he is a senior partner at the firm and shares in its profits.

There already here. What idiot thinks that all Mexican trucks are waiting to cross one port of entry? Mexican trucks and buses are already here. Products "Made in Mexico" are almost as common as those "Made in China". I will never understand the hysteria about the TTC. What jobs lost? US manufacturing jobs have been shifting overseas long before the TTC was ever conceived.

I fail to see the relevance of the quote to this thread. Do you think there would not be a port of entry at the border? Do you suggest any port of entry is ceding a portion of our liberty. I guess my response is, WHAT?

It's all about greed by corporate greedholders and American sell outs.

I'm sorry, but in a capitalist system, all profit is not greed. In a socialist system all profit is greed. As for me and my business, I prefer the former. If you can get the capital together and do it for zero profit, put your bid in. Only a true socialist would call stockholders, "greedholders".

No, only a true socialist would justify selling out America by having it SINK to Mexico’s level as corporate greedholders profit; the result of the greedholders and sell-outs is that three countries are equalizing as American taxpayers foot the bill for the “equalization”.

Cintras will be leasing our (NJ) toll roads too. It should be known that these lease agreements carry non-compete clauses. Meaning, roads not owned by this lease cannot be kept in better or more accessable condition than their own.

These toll road leases include any road that is decided to have a toll put on it too.
