NAU deniers: Ignorant, or deceitful?

There is a difference between stupid and
ignorant. The talking heads at Fox News are not
stupid. But the three guests on Brit Hume's
Tuesday night telecast who snickered at the
"conspiracy nuts" who are concerned about the
emergence of a North American Union are either
ignorant, or deceitful. Here's the question: Is
fact, or fiction?
Ridicule is a time-proven way to discredit
opponents and redirect attention away from the
issue at hand. Consider how President Bush
avoided answering a direct question during a
press conference in Canada Tuesday. When asked,
"Can you say today that this is not a prelude to
a North American Union?" Bush didn't say yes or
no; he hemmed and hawed and told reporters: "I'm
amused by the difference between what actually
takes place in the meetings and by what some are trying to say takes place."
Were the meetings not held in secret and were the
press allowed to observe and report, the
president would certainly not be amused. Through
a Freedom of Information Act request, Judicial
Watch secured documents from a previous meeting
of the Security and Prosperity Partners, and
learned that in secret, the participants
evolution by stealth," referring to the
advancement of the SPP. But the president
insisted that references to a North American
Union were nothing but "political scare tactics."
The president is not ignorant about what the SPP
is doing; he and the other heads of state, the
prime minister of Canada and Mexico's president,
are the current contractors charged with building
the NAU. The chief architect is one Robert Pastor
<http://www.cfr.org/publication/8102/>Council on Foreign Relations Task Force.
Michael Medved, a talk-show host who calls those
concerned about the NAU a
collection of lunatics and losers, crooks,
cranks, demagogues and opportunists," is also
either ignorant, or deceitful.
also claims, "[Robert] Pastor is a loony leftist,
slightly unhinged professor at American
University ... who bears no connection whatever
to the Bush administration or the dreaded
Security and Prosperity Partnership ... an addled
academic with zero power in the government."
The FOIA documents secured by Judicial Watch from
the secret SPP meeting revealed that in September
conducted a seminar for the participating
agencies of the three governments on "The Future
of North America." Obviously, Pastor was invited
by the Bush administration. Obviously, Medved was
either ignorant of this fact, or he is
deliberately trying to deceive his audience.
Canada's prime minister, Stephen Harper, said:
"There's not going to be any NAFTA Superhighway
connecting the three nations, and it's not going
to go interplanetary, either."
But Canada's deputy minister of transportation,
Andrew Horoskok, is a regional vice president of
the North American SuperCorridor Coalition, along
Is Harper ignorant, or deceitful?
In his defense of the secret SPP meetings, and in
an effort to further distract attention from the
NAU, President Bush told reporters that NAFTA
generated $884 billion in trade. But he failed to
report that last year alone,
also produced a U.S. trade deficit of $136.1
billion. Is Mr. Bush ignorant of this fact, or deceitful?
Bush, Harper, Medved and the three talking heads
at Fox News can deny all they want, but it does
not alter the facts on the ground.
is the legal framework upon which Robert Pastor's
American Community is being constructed. The
<http://www.spp.gov/>Security and Prosperity
Partnership provides a mechanism for accelerating the progress.
Few people are aware that the
Commission consists of three appointed
individuals the trade representative, or
equivalent, from each country who are charged
with implementing the NAFTA Agreement. The
Commission appoints a secretariat to oversee the
511 requires that each nation adopt NAFTA's
"Uniform Regulations" by 1994, and that changes
or additions to these Uniform Regulations be
adopted by each nation, within 180 days.
In plain English, this means that appointed
individuals are creating trade policy, and
elected officials must conform laws to NAFTA's
"Uniform Regulations" within 180 days. Shouldn't
this be the other way around? To wit:
trucks will deliver freight throughout the United
States, despite the efforts of Congress to
prevent it, because NAFTA's international dispute
resolution machinery has ordered the U.S. to
allow Mexican trucks access to U.S. highways.
Every day, working groups consisting of appointed
individuals from the agencies of these three
governments meet to find ways to "harmonize" and
"integrate" the policies, rules and laws of the
three nations. This is a major objective of Pastor's North American Community.
Another of Pastor's goals is the creation of a
North American Advisory Council. President Bush
and the other two "contractors"
the North American Competitiveness Council in 2006.
Pastor also wants annual "North American
Summits," which have occurred each year since the creation of the SPP.
Pastor's plan calls for a single security border
around all three nations, which is a good
explanation for why only 18 miles of the more
than 800 miles of border fence have been built.
The goal of the NAU or the North American
Community, if you prefer is to effectively
erase the borders between Mexico and Canada, not strengthen them.
Pastor also wants a North American Parliamentary
group. Hmm ... what could possibly be the purpose
of a tri-lateral parliamentary body if it is not
to create legislation for all three nations?
The deniers can deny all they wish. If they are
not ignorant, they must be deceitful. If it looks
like a skunk and smells like a skunk, it's
probably a skunk regardless of what you call it.
