Reality of Plan for North American Union Exposed

Jerome Corsi was interviewed Wednesday on WCHS 58Live talk radio by Michael Agnello over his new book exposing the very real and secretive plan implemented by the Bush administration for a North American Union. This was an excellent interview and something we had encouraged in our earlier article here that is worth reviewing again:

Behind Bush's Immigration Bill: The Secret Plan for North American Union

Dr. Corsi's book was summarized on World Net Daily (here) in these words:

Just two weeks after its release, "The Late Great USA" – which exposes government plans to promote integration of the U.S., Mexico and Canada – has made the New York Times best-seller list.

Written by Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., co-author of "Unfit for Command" which became a No. 1 New York Times best-seller and a decisive influence in the 2004 election, "The Late Great USA" exposes the multifaceted plan to turn the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a North American version of the European Union.

Agnello admitted that he thought that what he had read about a North American Union was a bunch of "conspiracy huey" and was startled to find out that it is well documented and true. This refreshing admission deserves to be considered by all republicans on other topics as well. This awakening demonstrates again the dangers of partisanship (when all swear to defend and uphold the Constitution as a standard) which blinded republicans for too long to a neoconservative and CFR serving President (and Vice President and neocon administration) who holds the U.S. Constitution in contempt, and why blogs like this are adamant about the constitution being the basis for political judgments and not party labels or "conservative" rhetoric. Hopefully other conservatives and republicans will awaken to this very real and destructive agenda which threatens the independence and sovereignty of the United States and the final demolition of the Constitution by the globalists and pragmatists. This also sheds light on large, particularly international corporations, often too much applauded for "bringing new jobs" and being wooed by state governments, who incentivize them in desperation while subsidizing the destruction of local small businesses and creative entrepreneurs. (There should be more applause for local start up companies than for bringing Toyota to West Virginia).

This is a huge and primary issue that merits the attention of West Virginians! And Dr. Corsi, upon a question from Agnello of who in Washington was trustworthy and "ahead of the curve" in opposing this agenda, mentioned in no uncertain terms, with very strong implications, just who could be trusted on this issue. In his reply he named Ron Paul, Tom Tancredo, and Duncan Hunter, respectively, and in that order. The implication for republican voters in the primary is very clear, namely, that the "lead candidates" (supported and publicized by the major news networks and their debates) in the 2008 presidential race, Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, and even the unannounced Fred Thompson ARE NOT candidates who are on top of or oppose this anti-sovereign, anti-constitutional agenda of merging Mexico, the U.S., and Canada into an American EU! By implication the so-called early "lead" republican candidates would continue the agenda of the Bush administration, and so would the Democrats as well! Again, popularity thus far appears to be too much on the superficial image and ear-tickling soundbites than on solid, well-considered issues.

Specifically, Fred Thompson, like Dick Cheney, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which heavily promotes and drives the SPP and NAU agenda (piece by piece toward world government via economic pragmatism) mentioned in our previous article linked above (see the video in that article particularly), which is why he is termed a neocon globalist.

Ron Paul's positions, as Dr. Corsi mentioned, on this are well documented. On the NAFTA Superhighway, and being a Congressman from Texas (and opposing strongly all illegal immigration) he states this, hotly opposing it in his typical and principled constitutionally consistent manner:

The proposed highway is part of a broader plan advanced by a quasi-government organization called the “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America,” or SPP.

The SPP was first launched in 2005 by the heads of state of Canada, Mexico, and the United States at a summit in Waco.

The SPP was not created by a treaty between the nations involved, nor was Congress involved in any way. Instead, the SPP is an unholy alliance of foreign consortiums and officials from several governments. One principal player is a Spanish construction company, which plans to build the highway and operate it as a toll road. But don’t be fooled: the superhighway proposal is not the result of free market demand, but rather an extension of government-managed trade schemes like NAFTA that benefit politically-connected interests.

The real issue is national sovereignty. Once again, decisions that affect millions of Americans are not being made by those Americans themselves, or even by their elected representatives in Congress. Instead, a handful of elites use their government connections to bypass national legislatures and ignore our Constitution-- which expressly grants Congress the sole authority to regulate international trade.

The ultimate goal is not simply a superhighway, but an integrated North American Union--complete with a currency, a cross-national bureaucracy, and virtually borderless travel within the Union. Like the European Union, a North American Union would represent another step toward the abolition of national sovereignty altogether.
Another article where he warns in Congress of a North American United Nations is here. Ron Paul is a voice in the wilderness when it comes to the republican 2008 Presidential candidates who ignore and duck this important issue (as they also do on their 2nd Amendment records and abortion) that effects American's "way of life" and security. Again, consistency in adherence to rule of law by the Constitution make him a trustworthy and consistent defender of national sovereignty and opposition to illegal immigration.

Ron Paul vehemently criticized the recent immigration bill pushed by the administration, refuting Bush's claim stating Amnesty Opponents are not Un-American.

Although action in the United States Senate this week has slowed passage of the amnesty bill, it is not yet dead as President Bush remains committed to this approach. That is why the President recently suggested that those of us who oppose amnesty for illegal immigrants are unpatriotic. Those of us who strongly oppose the new immigration reform bill before the Senate “don't want to do what's right for America ,” the president said. I reject that assessment as unfair and inaccurate.

Supporters of the amnesty bill like to claim that border protection is their first priority. But if enforcement of our borders is the highest priority, certainly a much shorter bill could have been written. Even better, why not enforce existing laws? According to our Constitution, Congress makes the laws that the executive branch is to enforce. The rush to pass this new law seems to obfuscate this simple fact. There are plenty of laws already in place, so it seems sensible to largely solve this problem without new laws.

To make matters worse, as I wrote in a recent column, some 120 of our best trained border guards are going to be sent to Iraq to help them with border enforcement! In addition, National Guard troops participating in Operation Jump Start on the Mexican border are scheduled to also be sent to Iraq and Afghanistan .

He also demonstrates how the Bush administration has intertwined and pushed the illegal immigration "amnesty bill", a National ID (REAL ID), and SPP plan and how they are all related.

Although the “reform” of immigration in the amnesty bill is enough to cause alarm, other highly troubling provisions are tucked away that will serve to undermine our sovereignty and weaken our civil liberties. According to the most recent version of the Senate bill, the misnamed Security and Prosperity Partnership for North America is to be “accelerated.” It seems ironic that a project aiming to actually weaken US borders with Mexico and Canada would be added into a bill that purports to toughen border controls.

Also, this bill will bring us closer to a national ID card, which without a doubt runs counter to American values and history and will punish American citizens without doing much to counter those who would come here illegally.
Ron Paul is the only candidate who completely rejects and exposes the danger of all these elements for Americans. Politicians and candidates who take oaths to uphold the constitution as rule of law must take the same positions consistent with it. (See our side column links against North American Union).
