"This NAFTA superhighway will connect with ports in Mexico (specifically Manzanillo and Lazaro Cardenas) for NAFTA trade. "The plan is to ship containers of cheap goods produced by under-market labor in China and the Far East into North America via Mexican ports. From the Mexican ports, Mexican truck drivers and railroad workers will transport the goods across the Mexican border with Texas. Once in the U.S., the routes will proceed north to Kansas City along the NAFTA Super-Highway, ready to be expanded by the Trans-Texas Corridor, and NAFTA railroad routes being put in place by Kansas City Southern."5
The advantage to retail companies like Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and Home Depot (to mention a few) is enormous. Currently the cost of shipping and ground transportation can nearly double the cost of cheap labor and slave labor from China and the Far East. China will be able to unload these huge cargo ships in these deep water ports in Mexico and bypass much of those costs. Mexican workers undercut the Longshoreman Union port employees on the docks of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Mexican truck drivers undercut the Teamsters. And U.S. truckers and railways will no longer be needed to move goods across the Rocky Mountains.6
Oh, by the way, these Mexican ports will be controlled by the Chinese communists through a company we have talked about before on "Point of View." The company is Hutchison-Whampoa. This name should sound familiar. Hutchison Ports Holding owns Panama Ports Company which controls both ends of the Panama Canal.
The Chinese are also working to deepen and widen the Panama Canal so they can sail their enormous container ships to Florida and travel north through another corridor. Ultimately, the plan is to have seven of these corridors in the United States.
And while I am talking about the Panama Canal, I might mention that the man who is considered the father of the North American Union is Robert Pastor. And if that name sounds familiar it should. He is the man who proposed that the United States give away the Panama Canal during Jimmy Carter's presidency. He was the co-chair of the May 2005 CFR report, "Building a North American Community."7
So how will the North American Union be put in place? There is good evidence to show that this plan will implemented the same way it was done in Europe: incrementally. There will be various bureaucratic regulations to eventually transform the United States, Canada, and Mexico the way Europe was transformed into the European Union from the Common Market. In fact, Robert Pastor has proposed that we get rid of the U.S. dollar, the Canadian dollar, and the Mexico peso. Instead we will have what he calls the amero (just like Europeans have the euro).
Just recently (September 12-14, 2006) there was a secret meeting in Banff , Alberta. Apparently its goal was to bring representatives from the three countries to advance the cause of the North American Union. You can read about these proceedings in a recent article that provides both the agenda and the attendee list.8
Those who have been investigating this have also been filing Freedom of Information Act requests. Much of this information is posted on www.judicialwatch.com
, and additional materials will soon be posted at www.minutemanproject.com
. They show memos of governmental officials discussing how our laws can be changed or how the laws of Canada or Mexico can be changed so that we would have North American laws.
So what should we do? First, we need to educate ourselves and pass this information on to others who would also be concerned about the loss of American sovereignty. The success in defeating the Dubai Ports issue (as well as other initiatives) demonstrates that once the American people know what is going on, they call and write their legislators. Get a copy of this commentary from our website and distribute it. Go to the references and endnotes that I provide to get additional information.
Second, find out where your elected representatives stand. Do they support a North American Union or do they support American sovereignty? It is better to find out before the elections.
Those of you in Texas should also ask the candidates for governor and other elected officials where they stand on the NAFTA superhighway. Eventually there will be 4,000 miles of highway. The state will use eminent domain to take this land. Under the Supreme Court Kelo decision, they can take that land even though the superhighway will be built for private benefit. Some have estimated that up to one million people in Texas may lose their land or their business under this eminent domain action. Where do these Texas candidates stand on this issue?
Third, express your support for the resolution (H. CON. RES. 487) introduced by Representatives Goode, Jones, Tancredo, and Paul. Its says that the United States should not enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada. And it says that the United States should not engage in the construction of a NAFTA Superhighway System."
