Readers of the AIM Report are accustomed to learning of huge distortions or omissions by the media. This time, the under-reported story deals with the possible end of America, as we know it.
Major players are secretive and are trying to keep the media out of the loop. But that does not let the mainstream media off the hook. There is enough stonewalling, secrecy and there are plenty of telltale signs, so that any assignment editor whose curiosity is not aroused is probably in the wrong business.
But in terms of the national media, only Lou Dobbs of CNN has blown the whistle on a scheme whereby a North American “Security and Prosperity Partnership,” being implemented by the Department of Commerce, could pave the way for a transnational entity called the North American Union.
The implications of this scheme are staggering. Some experts say that up to a million people in Texas stand to lose their homes and 584,000 acres of rich farm and ranchland are to be destroyed, all for a privately funded highway. Of course, this is not the first time property-owners did battle with highway builders. That in itself is getting lots of media attention, but almost entirely in the regional/local media. At first glance, one might say this is a local story, so why should it go national?
But suppose you were told that this “highway” (to be built largely by foreign investors) could serve as the starting point for a much larger plan whose end result would be to erase the borders (figuratively if not literally) between the United States, Mexico, and Canada? Wouldn’t you be curious, no matter where you live? The national media isn’t interested.
The Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC) is its official name. Critics call it the NAFTA Highway. The publicized TTC is being treated as a regional
story because of the disruption to Texas farmers and other property owners.
The TTC is no ordinary highway. The toll road would be four football fields wide. It includes separate lanes (up to six for automobiles, four for large trucks), plus tracks for freight trains, separate tracks for high-speed and commuter rail, also space for oil and gas pipelines, electricity wires, and broadband transmission cables.
The Associated Press (AP) has carried regional stories focused on the Texas politics of the TTC highway—the anger of the farmers and other property owners likely to get their Kelo notices soon now that the election is over. Kelo is the U.S. Supreme Court decision that said it was okay for government to take your home away from you if some big corporate hotel chain, strip mall contractor, or—in this case—foreign investor wants to build on your land and create a fatter tax base than what the government can get from ordinary home-owners.
But Freedom of Information (FOIA) e-mails suggest the TTC is but one part of the drive for a North American Union—not unlike the European Union. The vehicle for that is the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), housed in the Department of Commerce in Washington.
The Council on Foreign Relations constantly promotes the SPP and supported the conference that created it. That trilateral meeting in Waco, Texas in March of 2005 ended in a handshake between President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin.
A press release was all that was issued. Any formal treaty would have required ratification by the United States Senate. None was written and submitted to the Senate.
The SPP is very secretive about the 20 “working groups” it has spawned where bureaucrats from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico are rewriting proposals for our laws, regulations and trade agreements whose ultimate effect would be to create a North American Union.
The United States of America, as we know it, will soon no longer exist. Politicians are hard at work selling out Americans. Bush and Politicians are creating deals to turn America in to a dictatorship where American Freedoms WILL be striped away. No more freedom of speech. No more freedom of self expression. NO MORE FREEDOMS.
