Is this another conspiracy theory? Maybe. Maybe not. I suppose it depends on how you define a conspiracy. If a murder or a theft of government secrets or some other illegal act is planned by some number of people in secret and various steps of the plan are carried out in secret, whether the plan succeeded or not , there was indeed a conspiracy.
What about the long term plan of the Marxist/liberals to take control of the Democrat Party and together with big centralized government advocates from the right move this country far away from the vision of our Founders and the constitution as we conservatives see it. Would you classify what the liberals have done and are doing as a conspiracy? Some of you definitely would. But others would say there has been no conspiracy. The Marxist have never been shy about telling anyone who listen what their plan for America was. They would argue that they have done nothing illegal. They would argue that all the changes they have succeeded in making were carried out in full view of the public and were accomplished through the democratic process.
Our constitution provides that only Congress has the power to make laws; that the Executive has the power to enforce the laws and, that the Supreme Court has the power to decide if laws are constitutional or not as well as interpreting the meaning of any given law. Further, our constitution provides a system of checks and balances where by one or two of the three branches of government can declare the act of another branch to be unconstitutional.
So, if the liberals have used their political influence through the democratic process to implement laws and policies that we conservatives consider unconstitutional and no branch of government has declared the laws or policies unconstitutional, then what the liberals and the proponents of big government have done can not be defined as illegal and, therefore, there was no conspiracy. Maybe then we need a new term to describe what has been and is happening in our country. My suggestion is: Planned Incremental Evolution (PIE).
The purpose of all the above is to set the stage for the subject of today’s post. Yesterday I read a post at MY BLOG that I found very disturbing. The post has to do with apparent plans for a relationship between the United States, Mexico and, Canada that goes way beyond the current NAFTA agreement between the three countries. The story relates to a Wikileaks disclosure e-mails from an US diplomat. Loopyloo of MY BLOG picked up her story from the Randy ‘s Right blog , which in turn picked up the story from World Net Daily. So let’s go directly to the WND source to see what the hubbub is all about.
A document posted online by WikiLeaks reveals there were strategy discussions
regarding the adoption of a “North American Union” – called the North American
Initiative in this case – at the ambassadorial level in the United States
The document, from “a secret 2005 U.S. embassy cable from Ottawa signed by
then-Ambassador Paul Cellucci,” states:
An incremental and pragmatic package of tasks for a new North
American Initiative (NAI) will likely gain the most support among Canadian
policymakers. Our research leads us to conclude that such a package should
tackle both ‘security’ and ‘prosperity’ goals. This fits the recommendations of
Canadian economists who have assessed the options for continental integration.
While in principle many of them support more ambitious integration goals, like a
customs union/single market and/or single currency, most believe the incremental
approach is most appropriate at this time, and all agree that it helps pave the
way to these goals if and when North Americans choose to pursue
The WND report includes a pert of the WikiLeak’s leaked document that I was unable to copy and paste. There is also a link to the WikiLeaks post that I coul not open. I don’t know if that is a Venezuelan thing or if Google pulled the WikiLeaks post. WND has apparently been involved in investigating this subject for a long time along with a group that calls themselves Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC). The WND report is long and, to me, a bit confusing at times; but let me share a bit more of their report:
In that ceremony, Obama and Harper bypassed Congress to sign on the basis of
their executive authority a declaration that put in place a new national
security vision defined not by U.S. national borders but by a continental view
of a “North American perimeter.”
By signing the declaration, the Obama administration implemented without
congressional approval a key initiative President Bush began under the Security
and Prosperity Partnership of North America, moving the United States and Canada
beyond the North American Free Trade Agreement, commonly known as NAFTA, toward a developing North American Union regional government.
The declaration signed by the two heads of state and titled “Beyond the
Border: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness,”
was described as “For Immediate Release” on the websites of the White House and the Canadian chief executive.
Harper followed Obama’s lead in signing the declaration as a form of
executive order, deciding to bypass the Canadian parliament, much as Obama had
decided against taking a proposed bilateral “Beyond the Border” declaration to
Congress for prior review and approval.
The decision to declare a continental perimeter for the United States and
Canada, designed to effectively combine the two nations in mutual national
security and economic efforts, affirms the Obama administration’s intent to
implement the key objectives of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North
American in a way that avoids the type of public scrutiny and criticism that
dogged President George W. Bush after he openly declared his plans with the SPP.
The concern about the SPP has been that the North American Free Trade
Agreement, or NAFTA, could be evolved into a regional government with a regional
currency, the amero, designed to replace the U.S. dollar, the Mexican peso and
the Canadian dollar.
WND repeatedly had reportedthat the North American integration plan likely would proceed incrementally under the Obama administration, largely below the radar, even after the SPP was declared “dead” by one of its chief architects, Pastor.
WND documented that on Nov. 30, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano signed a “Trusted Traveler” agreement with Mexico, thereby implementing a primary objective of the SPP Transportation Policy working group under President Bush. The agreement opens the U.S. border to approximately 84 million Mexican citizens by issuing biometric “Trusted Traveler” cards that Mexicans entering the U.S. can swipe
through ATM-li ke”Global Entry” kiosks at some 20 international airports in the
WND also reportedthat the U.S. State Department is moving to expand the definition of a “North American perimeter” to define a continental border around the United States that would include Mexico as well as Canada.
The relevant document with Mexico is a March 23 State Department memo titled “United States-Mexico Partnership: A New Border Vision.” The document that appears to be a companion document to the Beyond the Border Declaration signed Obama signed with Harper on Feb. 4.
I apologize for the length of today’s post but I find all of this very disturbing. A number of recent government actions or inactions which have seemed to me to be irrational are now beginning to make sense. I’m talking about things like our governments lack of interest in securing our borders, the “Trusted Traveler” plan with Mexico and, the recent decision to allow Mexican truck drivers to deliver their cargo to its final destination in trucks that don’t meet American standards rather than drop off their trailers at the border to then be hauled by American truckers.
Is there a plan a foot to eventually create a North American Union between the US, Mexico and, Canada with one set of laws and one currency and with blurred borders? Is this just another conspiracy theory? Or is this another Planned Incremental Evolution that is taking place at a pace that doesn’t attract much or any attention from the American public? I’m inclined toward the latter. What do you think?
