The Bush Administration just gets curiouser and curiouser. They often talk about protecting our freedoms and defending our country and our way of life.
They don’t seem overly interested in building a fence along our southern border and the President seemed poised to sign the McCain-Kennedy bill that would have granted a path to citizenship to undocumented aliens. He refused to get involved in helping U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignatio Ramos and Jose Compean who were tried and sent to prison at the request of the Mexican government and their star witness, the same drug dealer that they were attempting to apprehend! Apparently, the President feels that, either there has been no miscarriage of justice or is eager to keep his friends in Mexico City happy.
Perhaps the answer to what is guiding our president has more to do with what is going on, not quite in secret, but behind the scenes. On March 23, 2005, the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) was announced by President Bush, Mexico’s President Vicente Fox and Canada’s Prime Minister Paul Martin in Waco, Texas.
The prestigious Hudson Institute, a Washington DC think tank published a 35 page report last year entitled, “Negotiating North America: The Security and Prosperity Partnership.”
The Hudson report defines the goal of SPP like this: “The SPP process is the vehicle for the discussion of future arrangements for economic integration to create a single market for goods and services in North America.”
The report explains the SPP process as: “The most important feature of the SPP design is that is neither intended to produce a treaty nor and executive agreement like NAFTA that would require congressional ratification or the passage of implementing legislation in the United States. The SPP was designed to function within existing administrative authority of the executive branch.”
The Hudson report explains further: “The design of the SPP is innovative, eschewing the more traditional diplomatic and trade negotiation models in favor of talks among civil service professionals and subject matter experts with each government. This design places the negotiation fully within the authority of the executive branch in the United States.”
The words used most frequently in the Hudson Report to describe the goals are “economic integration,” “labor mobility,” “free movement of goods, services and people across open borders,” and “harmonization” of regulations.
This is the beginning of the North American Union, similar to the European Union and the beginning of the end of the sovereignty of the United States of America.
