THE NAU AND THE INTEGRATION OF AMERICA
While most people think of history as something that happened before �their time,� many fail to understand that each one of us is in the process of watching history in the making and living it. Most fail to recognize the slow political and economic evolution to move the United States into a hemispheric free trade zone like that of the European Union.
Unlike the European Union�s integration which was given great fanfare in the media with Europeans entering into a contest to name the new combined currency, the integration of the United States with the other countries of this hemisphere is subject to a major media blackout. Do they fear the masses? Are they concerned they will wake up and scream �NO, NOT IN MY BACK YARD!�? Do they possibly think there might be another tea party? Whatever it is, no one in major media wants to tell the masses that their country and constitution is in the shredder. Unfortunately, it is not just the major media, but our own elected representatives who are not explaining what they are doing to bring about the demise of America.
Because the media has not specifically reported in headline from the steps that have been taken since 1992 to integrate the first three countries: Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, most Americans think that it does not exist. What will these very naive people do when they realize all of the 33 countries of this hemisphere, with the exception of Cuba, are being merged into a free trade zone called the Free Trade Areas of the Americas? Like the European Union, we will have a common currency, we will have a regional central bank (the Federal Reserve), and we eventually will have a regional parliament with locally elected representatives to it.
Is regionalism a new thing? No. When the United Nations was set up in 1945, they established regional commissions for the entire world. Ours is called the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean-ECLAC. While NAFTA is the first step to complete hemispheric integration, in 1994 when NAFTA was entered into force, the Clinton Administration called for a meeting of the presidents and prime ministers of the other 32 countries of this hemisphere in December to discuss integration.
Today, as a result of the elimination of duties on U.S. goods and the gradual phasing out of other tariffs over a 14 year period, three way trade between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico has doubled to over $623B. Furthermore, numerous agreements have been put in place regarding electricity, biodiversity, labor and worker�s rights. The NAFTA Secretariat is comprised of the three parts: the Canadian Section in Ottawa, the Mexican Section in Mexico City and the U.S. Section in Washington, D. C. The NAFTA parties are �committed to the successful conclusion of the Free Trade Areas of the Americas-FTAA [which will] build on the existing free trade agreements and on the expanding links that the NAFTA countries have elsewhere in the hemisphere.�
When I covered the second FTAA meeting in Santiago, Chile, I witnessed via a television monitor in the press room, the 34 Western Hemisphere heads of state sign a document that will integrate our countries into a new free trade zone. Then when I covered the follow-up meeting in Quebec, they signed another document. What I realized is that they were signing a new �Constitution� for the 21st Century�.
State Department document No. 10536 disseminated at the second meeting called, Words into Deeds Progress since the Miami Summit quoted Clinton,
In order to implement these initiatives, the 34 ministers representing labor, transportation, finance, justice, energy, telecommunications, science and technology, education, anti-crime initiatives, trade and commerce, and health and human services, have been meeting and working together since 1994 to create a new infrastructure for the integrated structure of our countries.
The second installment of the on-going hemispheric integration occurred on July 27, 2005 when Congress passed the Central American Free Trade Agreement-CAFTA which will eliminate barriers to trade and investment among the countries of Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and the United States. CAFTA eliminates all tariffs on 80% of U.S. manufactured goods, with the balance to be phased out over the next few years. To get Republican legislators to vote for CAFTA, Bush allowed the earmarking of $24.2B to the 2005 transportation bill dubbed SAFETEU-LU to persuade hold-outs to sell the sovereignty of their country. It appears that the countries of Latin America will and are coming in one by one so that by the time Congress decides they should make this legal, all they will do is catch up to actions. So what will it mean that the United States is now part of this regional integration?
First, we need to understand that regional integration is the complete demise of the United States of America as we know it. Our currency will be replaced by the Amero, the coming regional currency; our federal level of Congress will be demoted to the level of a state legislator as the coming regional parliament will supersede our �local congress�; our laws will be the same as the other 33 countries in this hemisphere and the rules and regulations by which we will abide will not be from the Constitution. Furthermore, we will have one flag, one anthem, one government, and one Court of Justice.
Lastly, although we are the most powerful and largest country in this hemisphere, we will be outvoted by the 13 Commonwealth countries located in this hemisphere. Say what? Let us discuss for the moment the Commonwealth of Nations. Operating within the United Nations are the 54 countries of the Commonwealth which is headed up by the Queen of England. According to Wikipedia.org, �the commonwealth of nations is a voluntary association of independent states, mostly formed by the United Kingdom and its former colonies.� Countries that �acknowledge the British monarch as head of state are known as Commonwealth Realms�, while all members recognize Queen Elizabeth II as Head of the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth is the successor of the (old) British Empire and has its origins in the Imperial Conferences of the 1920s.�
When the United Nations was formed in 1945, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom-UK had three votes. At that time, the UK was comprised of 52 countries. As they de-colonized between 1946 and 1989, the UK spun off 42 countries. The UK currently has a number of associated states, external territories, and dependencies. However, every time they spun off a country and it received its �independence�, that country was granted a vote at the United Nations, the World Bank, the IMF, the World Trade Organization, etc. In other words, the U.S. is outvoted at the United Nations by the potential of 54 votes by all the Commonwealth countries. Currently with regard to NAFTA, we are equal to Canada which is a Commonwealth nation. However, once the FTAA is put together, the U.S. will be outvoted in our hemispheric parliament by the 13 countries that are Commonwealth members! They countries are: Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent Grenadines, and Trinidad/Tobago.
How do you integrate our currency with countries that have a parliamentary structure and which acknowledge the queen of England as Head of State? Exactly what will history books say with regard to the integration of the U.S. with Canada and Mexico and then the complete integration of our hemisphere? Will they explain the evolutionary color of our dollar from green to various colors? Will they explain how the integration was gradual beginning with NAFTA, then CAFTA and then the other Latin American countries? Will they explain the devolution of power of the national parliaments in favor of the FTAA parliament? Will they explain how the train and transportation systems were changed to first link the NAFTA countries and then to link all of the Americas? Will they talk about how Latin America had better soil to provide all the food needed for the Americas? Will they determine that Presidents Clinton and Bush were heroes? Will they talk about the �Old� America and what the Liberty Bell use to mean? Lastly, how will we answer our grandchildren when they ask us why we allowed America to be integrated?
[Summery: This is the end of our sovereignty and Constitutional guarantees. A police state is in the making to deal with resistors to this diabolical scheme. God and the 10 commandments will slowly be eradicated, so will homeschooling. America will revert back to pre-Christ days of paganism. Will the cops sell their soul for a paycheck and go against the people? You bet they will, and most of them (not all) will not even see anything wrong with what they�re doing.]
What will you say to your children and grandchildren when they ask
you, why did you allow this to happen?
