|Op-Ed - November 20, 2006
I just returned from a week in Washington,
D.C., with a group of concerned women where we learned about the
Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), also known as “The
North American Union.” This partnership was agreed upon at
a private meeting held in Waco, Texas, March 23, 2005, between then-President
of Mexico, Vicente Fox; U.S. President George Bush; and then-Prime
Minister Paul Martin of Canada. The SPP is an agreement to merge
our United States of America with Mexico and Canada.
I am outraged about what the Bush administration
is doing with this partnership behind Congress’s back. (See
With virtually no mention in the mainstream
media and no oversight from Congress, Commerce Secretary Carlos
M. Gutierrez is pushing forward, through his department, the “working
groups” that are currently implementing this plan. Government
bureaucrats and business leaders are “harmonizing and integrating”
our laws with Mexico and Canada on a broad range of issues such
as E-Commerce, Transportation, Environment, Health, Agriculture,
Financial Services, and National Security just to mention a few.
Do we want our laws “harmonized” with Socialist Canada
and corrupt Mexico?
If you are concerned about terrorism in our
country, just remember that enlarging our borders, merging our security
functions with one of the most corrupt nations on earth (Mexico),
and giving up sovereignty and constitutional protections does NOT
make us safer.
Dr. Jerome Corsi, a Harvard Professor, who
has spent months researching this issue was recently able through
a Freedom of Information request to obtain about 1,000 pages on
SPP/North American Union, which clearly reveal that the Bush administration
is running a “shadow government” with Mexico and Canada
in which unelected bureaucrats are crafting a broad range of policy
changes. The SPP is truly rewriting U.S. administrative law, all
without Congressional oversight or public disclosure.
The government watchdog organization, Judicial
Watch, obtained many of the same documents that Dr. Corsi has received,
including the organizational chart and a listing of trilateral Mexican,
Canadian, and U.S. administrative officers who report on multiple,
cabinet-level “working groups.”
web site has now put up a “Myth vs. Fact” document posted
for public relations purposes to begin the “whitewash”
in which they think they can hoodwink the American public. One of
the ways the administration has been able to go around Congress
is by not having the three countries sign a treaty or “law”
on SPP. I want to know -- and the American public should demand
to know – where does the Bush administration get the congressional
authorization to invite two foreign nations to the table to rewrite
The Bush administration is trying to create
the infrastructure for a new regional North American government
in stealth fashion, under the radar and out of public view. Congress
has unequivocally been asleep at the wheel.
It is incredible but, if this template is followed,
just four years from now the United States may cease to exist as
an independent nation. Its laws, rules and regulations – including
all freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution – will be subject
to review and nullification by the North American Union’s
governing body (unelected). There will no longer be a Canadian or
Mexican border. Transnational transportation corridors will crisscross
the United States delivering the cheapest goods possible from China
and Vietnam with Mexican truckers who will work for a pittance of
what our U.S. truckers earn. Thousands of middle-class jobs will
be wiped out, and the U.S. will become nothing more than a province
in an emerging North American superstate.
The American people have got to be alerted and
we must contact our members of Congress to put a stop to this. Most
Representatives and Senators are largely unaware of the SPP/North
American Union. I am certain that an aroused and deeply concerned
electorate would have little trouble gaining support to block what
is planned and retain our nation’s hard-won independence.
Please help stop this insane move towards a North American Union.
