Most of you have probably noticed the precipitous plummet of the US dollar on world markets. As of this writing, it is now trading at a low of $1.54 versus the euro. Big deal you might say: the euro is a fairly new currency; historic lows against it don’t mean much. But when I last visited Europe in the summer of 2004 it was only trading in the low $1.20’s. Even then, experts had begun to speculate that perhaps the euro was destined to become the new world currency.
If you’re not convinced something odd is up, then note how the Canadian dollar is on par with the US dollar. In fact, it’s worth slightly more. That’s the first time that’s happened in ages. It indicates that something dire is happening to our economy.
But it goes deeper…
Cut to a mere week and a half ago, when Canada and the US made a historic but little covered agreement, pledging military support to one another in cases of domestic civil disturbance. Jerome Corsi, on WorldNetDaily, correctly notes that the import of the agreement is that it “was not submitted to Congress for approval, nor did Congress pass any law or treaty specifically authorizing this military agreement to combine the operations of the armed forces of the United States and Canada in the event of a wide range of domestic civil disturbances ranging from violent storms, to health epidemics, to civil riots or terrorist attacks.”
In other words, the governments of the US and Canada made a decision, without consulting you and your representatives that could have significant military implications over the lives of American citizens…
Welcome to the New World Order. Welcome to the North American Union.
Speculation about a North American Union, a melding of the US, Canada and Mexico into a superstate ala the European Union, has been rife on the internet and among political and conspiracy theorists for years. But all the “what ifs” seemed to evaporate when Bush, amid little media fanfare, signed the Security and Prosperity Partnership (or SPP) in Waco, Texas (I know, I know, the secret symbolism reeks of irony) in 2005. According to a government website, the SPP is a White House-led initiative among the United States and the two nations it borders – Canada and Mexico – to increase security and to enhance prosperity among the three countries through greater cooperation. Like most government publications, it spins its facts in almost gleefully transparent ways. The website goes on to say:
The SPP was an agreement signed by Presidents Bush and his Mexican and Canadian counterparts in Waco, TX, on March 23, 2005.
The SPP is a dialogue to increase security and enhance prosperity among the three countries. The SPP is not an agreement nor is it a treaty. In fact, no agreement was ever signed.
The SPP is a movement to merge the United States, Mexico, and Canada into a North American Union and establish a common currency.
The cooperative efforts under the SPP, which can be found in detail at www.spp.gov, seek to make the United States, Canada and Mexico open to legitimate trade and closed to terrorism and crime. It does not change our courts or legislative processes and respects the sovereignty of the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The SPP in no way, shape or form considers the creation of a European Union-like structure or a common currency. The SPP does not attempt to modify our sovereignty or currency or change the American system of government designed by our Founding Fathers.
The SPP is being undertaken without the knowledge of the U.S. Congress.
U.S. agencies involved with SPP regularly update and consult with members of Congress on our efforts and plans.
Notice how the first “fact” spins away the simple historical reality that an agreement was most definitely signed by substituting the word “dialogue”. Dialogues are exchanges; they are not signed like official treaties.
Notice how the third “fact” spins another historical reality that Congress was informed by saying it has been “updated” and “consulted”. That’s all fine and good, except that the Constitution plainly states that Congress must ratify all treaties.
Finally, notice how the second “fact” spins the concept of merging the three countries by using the old ploy of open trade and preventing terrorism. Funny, I don’t recall any terrorist incidents occurring at all in Canada or Mexico, at least not in recent memory, and I don’t recall any terrorist attacks on the USA since September 11, 2001 — unless of course you count the anthrax that came from our own government labs. Even so, that was over six years ago. And weren’t NAFTA and GATT supposed to have taken care of free trade?
The smoking gun here is the currency. The dollar is plunging, driven of course by too much easy credit and rising oil prices. But few people realize that the amero is a very real phenomenon. In fact, I can even show you a picture of one: simply check out this video on YouTube. The coin has a D, denoting the Denver Mint as its place of origin. Lots of sites on the internet try to debunk it as a novelty coin, but how do you explain this slip up by financial expert Steve Previs on CNBC?
If you are still not convinced, let’s take a look at a report written by the Council on Foreign Relations. It praises the SPP, and goes a step further in recommending the following: “…the Task Force proposes the creation by 2010 of a North American community to enhance security, prosperity, and opportunity. We propose a community based on the principle affirmed in the March 2005 Joint Statement of the three leaders that ‘our security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary.’
Its boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter within which the movement of people, products, and capital will be legal, orderly, and safe. Its goal will be to guarantee
a free, secure, just, and prosperous North America.”
Didn’t the European Union start out as the European Common Market? Then it morphed into the European Economic Community? Back then, lots of conspiracy nuts warned of a coming superstate with a common currency. Twenty years ago they were laughed at. Now, the euro is crushing the dollar in international currency markets.
This document goes on to recommend full labor mobility between the countries, open roads, open skies, a North American Inter-parliamentary group, increasing information and intelligence sharing at both the local and national levels, expanding NORAD into a multiservice Defense Command, and developing a North American border pass.
Jerome Corsi, writing on HumanEvents.com, interprets these ideas this way: “Once the SPP agenda is implemented with appropriate departmental regulations, there will be no area of immigration policy, trade rules, environmental regulations, capital flows, public health, plus dozens of other key policy areas countries that the U.S. government will be able to decide alone, or without first consulting with some appropriate North American Union regulatory body. At best, our border with Mexico will become a speed bump, largely erased, with little remaining to restrict the essentially free movement of people, trade, and capital.”
The good old CFR is a master of hiding its plans in plain sight. And a growing body of evidence overrides any earnest “aww shucks let’s work together to beat the bad guys” kind of hokum. Whatever they have planned, I can assure you: it’s not Pedro, Sam and Pierre simply knocking back a few beers at the old fishing hole…
