    NAFTA SUPERHIGHWAY | An urban myth or reality? Super suspicious foes The government denies any such plans, but campaign against it continues. By MATT STEARNS McClatchy Newspapers WASHINGTON | If the government really has a secret plan for a 12-lane road-and-rail NAFTA Superhighway that will split the heartland from Mexico to Canada, it is playing with a great poker face. “There is absolutely no U.S. government plan for a NAFTA Superhighway of any sort,” said David Bohigian, an assistant secretary of commerce. Sen. Kit Bond, a Missouri Republican and a powerful member of committees that would authorize and pay for...

    Grassroots Americans of all parties and economic classes rose up out of their political apathy a few months ago and forced President Bush to reverse his administration's decision to allow a Middle East government to own America's major ports. But the push for foreign ownership continues: the next port scheduled to be taken over is Kansas City, Missouri. Even though public schools stopped teaching geography a couple of decades ago, most Americans (especially residents of the Show Me state) are surprised to learn that Kansas City (where the only waves are "amber waves of grain") is a port. We are...

    A MASSIVE road four football fields wide and running from Mexico to Canada through the heartland of the United States is being proposed amid controversy over security and the damage to the environment. The "nation's most modern roadway", proposed between Laredo in Texas and Duluth, Minnesota, along Interstate 35, would allow the US to bypass the west coast ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to import goods from China and the Far East into the heart of middle America via Mexico, saving both cost and time. However, critics argue that the ten-lane road would lay a swathe of concrete...

    For the morbidly curious, please go online -- www.spp.gov -- to see the end of America. The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, "a trilateral effort to increase security and enhance prosperity among the United States, Canada and Mexico through greater cooperation and information sharing," was launched March 2005 -- in Texas. The premise of the near-treason is that the SPP hopes to unite this republic, Mexico and Canada in a near-suicide pact; that the security and prosperity of the gang of three are mutually dependent and complementary; and that the SPP supposedly will reflect the "shared belief" in...

    On May 10, 1869, a hastily arranged, Golden Spike Ceremony at Promontory Summit, Utah, marked the opening of the World’s First Transcontinental Railroad in the United States that connects the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. The culmination of this movement, which required enormous feats of engineering and lobor in the crossing of plains and high mountains of America was regarded as one of the crowning achievements of the presidency of Abrahim Lincoln, completed four years after his death. The building of the 1,776 miles of rail took four years involving mostly Irish and Chinese workers of whom hundreds lost their...

    John Hawkins apparently has taken on a mission to prove that the Bush Administration is not creating a North American Union to replace the United States, or a new currency -- the Amero -- to replace the U.S. dollar. Recently, in a blog debate on this website, I exchanged views with Mr. Hawkins. When Mr. Hawkins declined to respond in what the editors termed “Round 4” of that debate, I concluded Mr. Hawkins allowed me to have the final word because he lacked a convincing rejoinder. Now, we see Mr. Hawkins wants to carry on the debate but this time...

    The Port Authority of San Antonio has been working actively with the Communist Chinese to open and develop NAFTA shipping ports in Mexico. The plan is to ship containers of cheap goods produced by under-market labor in China and the Far East into North America via Mexican ports. From the Mexican ports, Mexican truck drivers and railroad workers will transport the goods across the Mexican border with Texas. Once in the U.S., the routes will proceed north to Kansas City along the NAFTA Super-Highway, ready to be expanded by the Trans-Texas Corridor, and NAFTA railroad routes being put in place...

    Dueling leases is latest wrinkle in city’s south-of-the-border business gambit. Kansas City has leased the same five acres of prime West Bottoms industrial land to two different tenants in a risky bid to leap onto the international trade stage. Arm in arm with Mexican authorities, city officials for nearly two years have pressed the U.S. departments of State and Homeland Security to approve the first foreign customs clearing house on U.S. soil. Advocates said the unprecedented international trade operation could quickly emerge as a Midwestern funnel, drawing Mexico-bound American exports from an 11-state region. This spring, city officials signed off...

    I am telling you guys, Dr. Jerome Corsi (co-author of "Unfit for Command" and "Minutemen") is NOT going to let this issue die. We owe it to OURSELVES to start paying attention. Mexican Trucks with cheap Mexican truck drivers will mean THE END of the American Patriot Trucker as we know it. (incidentally I come from a family of truck drivers so it also personal for me). Our own transport companies will set up mexican companies and run operations out of Mexico in order to "cut costs". Those "cuts" are OUR jobs! Sound familiar??? Please Read this. Please keep this...

    Kansas City is planning to allow the Mexican government to open a Mexican customs office in conjunction with the Kansas City SmartPort. This will be the first foreign customs facility allowed to operate on U.S. soil. City leaders voted last month to give the facility an innocuous name to hide its true identity as an arm of the Mexican government, staffed by Mexican officials. In fact, Kansas City is so enthusiastic about the opportunity, the cost of building the $3 million dollar facility for Mexico will be paid for by Kansas City taxpayers, not by the Mexican government. The current...
