North American Union threat gets attention of congressmen

Resolution aimed at blocking merger, funding of 'NAFTA superhighways'

Rep. Virgil Goode Jr., R-Va.

WASHINGTON – While several members of Congress have denied any knowledge of efforts to build "NAFTA superhighways" or move America closer to a union with Mexico and Canada, four members of the House have stepped up to sponsor a resolution opposing both initiatives.

Rep. Virgil Goode Jr., R-Va., has introduced a resolution – H.R. 487 – designed to express "the sense of Congress that the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union (NAU) with Mexico and Canada."

"Now that Congress is preparing to take up the issues of the North American Union and NAFTA superhighways, we are moving out of the realm where critics can attempt to disparage the discussion as 'Internet conspiracy theory,'" explained Jerome Corsi, author and WND columnist who has written extensively on the Security and Prosperity Partnership – the semisecret plan many suspect is behind the efforts to create a European Union-style North American confederation and link Mexico and Canada with more transcontinental highways and rail lines. "This bill represents a good first step."

Congress says pesticide regulations costing farmers money

By Nicole Duarte
Medill News Service
October 1, 2006


WASHINGTON - Congressman again railed federal regulators for dragging their feet in implementing an important pesticide law that would allow American farmers to cross into Canada to buy lower-priced pesticides.

Lawmakers on the Agriculture subcommittee on conservation, credit, rural development and research, peppered representatives of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and a state agriculture department with questions as to why the government has been slow in carrying out cross-border provisions of the 1993 North American Free Trade Agreement.

Default North American Union Escapes Scrutiny

North American Union Escapes Scrutiny

by Tom Fitton
Posted Oct 03, 2006


Judicial Watch uncovered documents that shed new light on the “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America,” announced by President Bush, former Mexico President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin on March 23, 2005.

The expressed goal of the partnership is to create “a safer, more prosperous North America” through enhanced cooperation between the United States, Mexico and Canada. Critics, however, charge that it is a veiled attempt to erase the borders between the countries, creating a “North American Union,” much like the “European Union,” with a common currency. (Under such an arrangement, the U.S. would obviously sacrifice aspects of its sovereignty.) Little has been reported about the inner workings of the partnership in the mainstream press, which is one reason why Judicial Watch decided to investigate.

Our investigations team is still in the process of analyzing the documents released to Judicial Watch in response to its Freedom of Information Act request. But what we have uncovered so far is intriguing. The partnership’s “working groups,” include officials from 10 federal agencies, including Commerce, State, and Homeland Security. These officials, in cooperation with representatives from Mexico and Canada, are addressing a wide variety of topics behind closed-doors, including the movement of goods between countries, traveler security, energy, environment and health.

Some of the more disturbing material, we found in documents concerning the North American Competitiveness Council. The council consists of 30 members, 10 each from the United States, Mexico and Canada, and is responsible for making recommendations to the partnership on a variety of topics. Judicial Watch uncovered its recommendations and meeting minutes. To give you a sampling of just how dangerous this partnership could become, here is what the council recommended on border enforcement: “A reasonable grace period should be established at border crossings, during which time people lacking documents are educated about their options and allowed to pass.” Can you imagine the chaos created at the U.S. border with Mexico if such an insane policy were ever enacted?

While these documents raise many additional questions, one thing is clear about the North American partnership announced just over a year ago: This is not simply a theoretical exercise. These “working groups” are spending your tax money to this project. The project is not about the North American capitals “synchronizing their watches” and making sure they have the right numbers to call in case of emergency. It is about changes in policy and regulations on a host of important issues–including border security. And it’s all happening without any fanfare or much media scrutiny. Judicial Watch will continue to push for transparency in this process.

Don't be fooled by the modest appearance of the Grand River Enterprises cigarette factory on the Six Nations reserve.

When it comes to court challenges, GRE knows how to play hardball in the big leagues.

Grand River Enterprises is taking on the United States government in a massive $340 million US case launched two years ago over a dispute that has the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) at its core.

Just when you thought it might be safe to go on to topics other than regional integration and trade practices driven by the love of money and the lust for power, you get blindsided again.

While ordinary Americans were reflecting on the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, globalists of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico were making their way quietly, quietly, to Banff, Alberta for the North American Forum held at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel Sept. 12–14. The meeting was closed-doors. According to some reports buses with attendees were arriving at night. There was no print media coverage in the U.S. and very little in Canada; I was able to download an article from the Toronto-based Star. Those who do not get their news from the Internet remain in the dark about one of the biggest unfolding events of the present decade: the globalist social engineering of a North American Union.

Mexico mega-port plan key to 'NAFTA superhighways'

Facility to be linked by rail, road to U.S., serve as hub for more Chinese goods

Posted: October 7, 2006
1:00 a.m. Eastern

WASHINGTON – There are mixed signals coming from Mexico about the fate of a proposed mega-port in Baja California for mainly Chinese goods that would be shipped on rail lines and "NAFTA superhighways" running through the U.S. to Canada.

The port at Punta Colonet, planned as a major container facility to transfer Asian goods into America's heartland, got at least a temporary setback when a Mexican businessman announced a competing project in which he was seeking to secure mineral rights in the area.

Gabriel Chavez, originally one of the principal movers behind the port plan, now says there are significant amounts of titanium and iron to be mined offshore – a project he considers more important than the port.

Thumbs up Congressman Paul Opposes NAFTA Superhighway

Congressman Paul Opposes NAFTA Superhighway

October 4, 2006

Washington: Congressman Ron Paul joined several of his congressional colleagues in expressing outrage at the planned “NAFTA superhighway” that will require eminent domain actions on an enormous scale in Texas and beyond. H.Con.Res 487, introduced by Virginia Representative Virgil Goode and cosponsored by Paul, expresses the sense of Congress that the United States should not engage in the construction of a NAFTA superhighway or enter into any plans to create a North American Union between Canada, the U.S., and Mexico.

Plans for such a superhighway are part of the so-called “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), which is neither a treaty nor a formal agreement. Rather, the SPP is a "dialogue" launched by the heads of state of Canada, Mexico, and the United States at a summit in Waco, Texas in March 2005.

According to the SPP website, this dialogue will create new supra-national organizations to coordinate border security, health policy, economic and trade policy, and energy policy between the three governments. As such, it is but an extension of the NAFTA and CAFTA agreements-- government trade schemes that bypass the express constitutional authority of Congress to regulate trade.

“This is a matter of national sovereignty,” Paul stated. “Any movement toward a North American Union diminishes the ability of average Americans to influence the laws under which they must live. The SPP agreement, which includes plans for a major transnational superhighway through Texas, is moving forward without congressional oversight-- and that is an outrage. The administration needs a strong message from Congress that the American people will not tolerate backroom deals that threaten our sovereignty.”

As you may know, Canada, the United States and Mexico entered into the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1992 to reduce trade barriers and allow for a North American trading zone for the greater flow of goods and services between these countries. This agreement came into force in 1994. Thinking over the past few years, do you think that, on the whole, Canada/ The United States has been a winner or a loser as a result of this trade agreement?

U.S. to Be Part of North American Union?

Monday, Oct. 9, 2006

After all was said and done, the U.S. Congress finally managed to pass immigration legislation in the year 2006.

On Sept. 14, the U.S. House of Representatives passed The Secure Fence Act of 2006 (H.R. 6061); and the U.S. Senate, late on Sept. 29, voted for a bill (S. 80-19), endorsing the House version. Sen. Teddy Kennedy, D-Mass., spokesman for the anti-fence forces, was conspicuous by his absence at the vote.

The House and Senate bills authorize the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to construct a fence along sections of the U.S.-Mexican border.

Labor blames NAFTA for loss of 45,000 jobs

Campaign urges senators to challenge free trade pact with Peru


Tam Moore
Capital Press Staff Writer


The Oregon AFL-CIO and its partner, the Oregon Fair Trade Campaign, this week took on U.S. free trade agreements and overseas outsourcing.

In the past decade, starting with signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1993, the campaign claims a loss of 45,000 jobs - from the closure of a french fry plant at Hermiston, Ore., to a beet sugar factory in Nyssa.

Tom Chamberlin, the AFL-CIO state president, said in an Oct. 10 telephone news conference that the Oregon Department of Labor put the job loss at just 32,000. He said that's because the state doesn't count any secondary job losses.

The campaign released a 28-page report filled with personal stories of Oregonians who lost their jobs. It claims 68,000 jobs lost, including some in the farm and forest sectors that supplied the plants that went down.

Arthur Stamoulis, director of the campaign, said NAFTA supporters' claims that the trade agreement created U.S. jobs aren't backed up by facts, and "New jobs (in Oregon) pay $9,000 less (per year) because they are in the service sector."

Diego Castelanoz, the former mayor of Nyssa and a one-time Amalgamated Sugar worker, said in the report that NAFTA shifts in sugar quotas were the cause of his employer shutting down.

Angela Kile, a Hermiston woman who lost her job when J.R. Simplot shuttered the french fry plant, called herself lucky.

She went back to college. "I'm only 29, and I can start a new career., I'm not 60 years old," Kile told reporters.

Stamoulis used the news conference to urge Oregon's U.S. senators to question the most recent free trade pact with Peru. It is expected to come up for ratification in a short congressional session after the November elections.

Gary Hufbauer, an economist who wrote a review of NAFTA published one year ago, told a Sacramento conference earlier this year that concerns over jobs dominated NAFTA debate even before the treaty was signed.

"Job counting has become a popular, if misinformed, way to evaluate NAFTA," Hufbauer said. His data show 123.1 million Americans working in 1994, and 139.3 million working in 2004.

To get a handle on net impact of a trade agreement, Hufbauer said, one needs to count jobs gained as a result of increased export sales as well as jobs lost by plant closures.

A nonbinding resolution sponsored by Rep. Virgil Goode (R-Va.), and cosponsored by Reps. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.), and Ron Paul (R-Texas), brings official opposition to the creation of the North American Union and the NAFTA Superhighway.



The resolution expresses the sense of Congress that:

(1) the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System;

(2) the United States should not enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada; and

(3) the president should indicate strong opposition to these or any other proposals that threaten the sovereignty of the United States.

Coalition mobilizes grass roots, targets Washington lawmakers

A coalition united by its determination to stop efforts to merge the U.S. into a North American Union is organizing a grass-roots effort to make it an issue in 2008, vowing to campaign against any candidate, Republican or Democrat, who won't side with them.

Spearheaded by Conservative Caucus Chairman Howard Phillips; WND columnist and author Jerome Corsi; and activist Phyllis Schlafly, leaders of the 50-member coalition held an event at the National Press Club yesterday, expressing support for a proposed congressional resolution that denounces any effort by the U.S. to enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada.

Corsi said lawmakers need to be held accountable, and the plan, along with calling for a congressional investigation, is to train members of Schlafly's Eagle Forum to lobby on Capitol Hill when the 100th Congress convenes in January.

"We want to make it a major issue of the 2008 campaign," Corsi said. "The coalition will work to oppose any candidate who doesn't sign on, Republicans and Democrats alike."
