NAU deniers: Ignorant, or deceitful?

Posted: August 25, 2007

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 
the 
<http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=F6871D05784A42F5>NAU 
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 
discussed 
<http://www.judicialwatch.org/6123.shtml>"... 
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 
and the 
<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 
<http://michaelmedved.townhall.com/blog/g/b4119746-9434-4f7b-a4fe-7caa91fee062>"shameless 
collection of lunatics and losers, crooks, 
cranks, demagogues and opportunists," is also 
either ignorant, or deceitful. 
<http://michaelmedved.townhall.com/blog/g/3d30a80e-5c0d-4c7f-a991-5eddc8a60d6b>He 
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 
2005, 
<http://www.judicialwatch.org/5979.shtml>Pastor 
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 
with 
<http://www.nascocorridor.com/pages/about/members_canada.htm>other 
prominent Canadians.

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, 
<http://www.truthabouttrade.org/article.asp?id=8057>NAFTA 
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. 
<http://www.sice.oas.org/Trade/NAFTA/naftatce.asp>NAFTA 
is the legal framework upon which Robert Pastor's 
<http://www.cfr.org/content/publications/attachments/NorthAmerica_TF_final.pdf>North 
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 
<http://www.sice.oas.org/Trade/NAFTA/chap-201.asp#A2001>NAFTA 
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 
details. 
<http://www.sice.oas.org/Trade/NAFTA/chap-052.asp#A511>Article 
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: 
<http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=57296>Mexican 
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" 
<http://www.americas-society.org/coa/NACC/indexNACC.html>created 
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.
