CFR's Plan to Integrate the U.S., Mexico and Canada

By Aussiegirl

If you read nothing else today, please read this extremely important article that Phyllis Schlafly published on her blog way back on July 13, 2005. I only today learned about it, but that doesn't matter, since what she says is even more relevant now, given the recent demonstrations that filled our legal streets with illegals, and the wimpy subservience that the Administration has shown to Mexico (my dictionary defines "subservience" as obsequious servility). No mention made in the article of the need for a future contest to replace the "Star Spangled Banner", or "America the Beautiful", with more appropriate titles. How about "North America the Beautiful"?

The real danger of this sort of arrangement is that we will suffer the same fate as the monstrous many-tentacled EU, that creature with fingers in every pie (literally) in Europe. Hidden in all these so-called "free-trade" agreements are provisions buried in the fine print that obligate the U.S. to uphold all sorts of arbitrary international standards on everything from foods to vitamins.

The EU started out as a reasonable sounding loosening of trade restrictions and barriers and instead morphed into a hideous many headed hydra (wow - all those fingers, tentacles AND heads -- you don't want to be anywhere near THIS baby) that regulates how large a pig pen should be and how French farmers are to make their celebrated cheeses. We are headed for the same disastrous socialist and bureacratic monstrosity.

CFR's Plan to Integrate the U.S., Mexico and Canada -- Phyllis Schlafly July 13, 2005 column.

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has just let the cat out of the bag about what's really behind our trade agreements and security partnerships with the other North American countries. A 59-page CFR document spells out a five-year plan for the "establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community" with a common "outer security perimeter."
"Community" means integrating the United States with the corruption, socialism, poverty and population of Mexico and Canada. "Common perimeter" means wide-open U.S. borders between the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

[...] This CFR document, called "Building a North American Community," asserts that George W. Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin "committed their governments" to this goal when they met at Bush's ranch and at Waco, Texas on March 23, 2005. The three adopted the "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America" and assigned "working groups" to fill in the details.

It was at this same meeting, grandly called the North American summit, that President Bush pinned the epithet "vigilantes" on the volunteers guarding our border in Arizona.

[...] The CFR document calls for creating a "North American preference" so that employers can recruit low-paid workers from anywhere in North America. No longer will illegal aliens have to be smuggled across the border; employers can openly recruit foreigners willing to work for a fraction of U.S. wages.

Just to make sure that bringing cheap labor from Mexico is an essential part of the plan, the CFR document calls for "a seamless North American market" and for "the extension of full labor mobility to Mexico."

[...] The experience of the European Union and the World Trade Organization makes it clear that a common market requires a court system, so the CFR document calls for "a permanent tribunal for North American dispute resolution." Get ready for decisions from non-American judges who make up their rules ad hoc and probably hate the United States anyway.

The CFR document demands that we implement "the Social Security Totalization Agreement negotiated between the United States and Mexico." That's code language for putting illegal aliens into the U.S. Social Security system, which is bound to bankrupt the system.

I can`t help but believe that something of this nature is driving the whole immigration issue; President Bush and the rest are willing to tear their party apart over the amnesty/guest worker program, and it makes no sense. Some piece of the puzzle is missing, and you may have it here!
