During the CNN-YouTube Republican presidential debate on November 28, a man sarcastically asked candidate Ron Paul if he believes in “this conspiracy regarding the Council on Foreign Relations and some plan to make a North American Union by merging the United States with Canada and Mexico.”
On stage with the seven other candidates and in front of a live audience and national television viewers, Paul smiled and responded:
“The CFR exists. The Trilateral Commission exists. It’s a conspiracy of ideas. This is an ideological battle. Some people believe in globalism, others of us believe in national sovereignty. There is a move on toward a North American Union, just like early on there was a move on for a European Union and it eventually ended up. So we had NAFTA and are moving toward a NAFTA highway. These are real things. There was legislation passed in the Texas legislature unanimously to put a hold on it. They’re planning on taking millions of acres by eminent domain for an international highway from Mexico to Canada, which is going to make the immigration problem that much worse…. I don’t like this trend toward international government….. Our national sovereignty is under threat.”
Even though Paul was given just 90 seconds to respond, the 10-term U.S. congressman from Texas did an excellent job answering the question. Globalists used “free trade” and open borders to integrate the countries of Europe and create the European Union, with a single government and currency. Europeans are increasingly wondering what happened to their countries and freedoms. The same approach is being used to erase America’s borders, independence, and Constitution to create a North American Union.
Having been a guest on numerous radio talk shows, I know how difficult it is to describe this diabolical scheme in just a minute or two, especially to Americans who have never heard of the North American Union (NAU) or believe “our government would never do such a terrible thing.” However, when I have time at speaking engagements to connect the dots and show documented proof, audiences understand and become extremely troubled.
Among the pieces of evidence I show audiences is the Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) May 2005 report titled “Building a North American Community.” (I detailed the report in the June 2006 edition of my book “Fighting Immigration Anarchy.”)
The CFR report, on page 3, calls for “the creation by 2010 of a North American community…. Its boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter.” A common external tariff means common taxing for the three countries, and an outer security perimeter means no more U.S. borders, by the year 2010.
Billionaire banker-industrialist David Rockefeller, chairman emeritus of the New York-based CFR, admitted on page 405 of his 2002 autobiography “Memoirs” that for decades he and his family have been “conspiring with others around the world” to sabotage America and create a world government. Among the many CFR members in the Bush administration are Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
For decades, CFR globalist elites from banking, industry, government, academia, and the corporate media have been working to convert America into a socialist state, on the path to world government. The CFR has backed both political parties in every presidential race since the late 1940s. With the exception of Ron Paul, virtually all of this year’s presidential candidates in both parties are approved by the CFR.
If you watch the entire clip of Paul answering the question about the North American merger, you will see something interesting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE8FKPH8t0g. Standing to Paul’s immediate right are Senator John McCain, Hollywood actor and former Senator Fred Thompson, and former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. See how uncomfortable they look and how they avoid looking at Paul. Why are they acting that way? Because McCain, Thompson, and Giuliani are open-borders globalists and in on the plot to dissolve America.
(Virtually all of the remaining presidential contenders also are open-borders globalists: Republicans Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, whose foreign policy advisor is CFR President Richard Haass, and Democrats Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Barak Obama, and Dennis Kucinich. Republicans Tom Tancredo, who dropped out in December, and Duncan Hunter are strong on U.S. border security. However, their zealous support for the now 5-year-old Iraq war expressed during the debates and votes supporting massive expansions of executive authority and domestic police powers cost them my support.)
Returning to the clip, McCain is a member of the CFR and was one of the 12 senators behind the treacherous Bush-Kennedy guestworker amnesty bill that Americans defeated in June 2007. McCain, Bush, Kennedy, and many others in Washington have kept our borders open, pushing amnesty for illegal aliens to quickly merge our nation into a North American Union. Why did Congress quietly gut the border fence just before Christmas 2007? These bureaucrats sabotaged the fence for the same reason: to destroy our sovereignty and create the NAU. (See my exposé “Why did Tancredo and Gilchrist Endorse Globalists for President?”)
Fred Thompson also is a CFR member. He is best known for playing a lawyer on the television series Law & Order. A former high-priced Washington lobbyist, Senator Thompson voted to expand the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to expand the NAU.
The first President Bush introduced NAFTA during his term (1988-1992). At that time, Bush publicly stated his goal for a “New World Order,” a phrase used for generations by individuals seeking to control the world through tyranny via a deceptive, gradual process. President Clinton, another New World Order player, as is presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, signed NAFTA in 1993, joining the U.S. with the governments of Canada and Mexico in a developing economic and political union.
Incredibly, John McCain says that NAFTA “was a good idea. It’s created millions of jobs and helped the economies of all three nations.” He makes this absurd comment in a short November 2007 video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86QwI-6TWic&feature=related.
If NAFTA was such “a good idea,” why have millions of Mexicans left their country for America. Why have millions of Americans lost jobs? Why have wages steadily declined in the U.S.?
On Ron Paul’s campaign website, www.ronpaul2008.com, the congressman says so-called “free-trade” deals such as NAFTA “are a threat to our independence as a nation. They transfer power from our government to unelected foreign elites…. I believe in being friends and I like as much free travel as possible and I like free trade, but I don’t like more government management because it essentially protects big industry.”
As for Rudy Giuliani, his law firm, Bracewell & Giuliani, represents Cintra Concesiones de Infraestructuras de Transporte, S.A., the Spanish investment group working with Zachry Construction Company on the Trans-Texas Corridor project, the first leg of the NAFTA Superhighway system. That’s why Giuliani looked so uneasy onstage when Paul was talking about the superhighway, which is so key to the North American merger. The government will use the Supreme Court’s June 2005 eminent domain ruling to seize millions of acres of land from Americans to build these international, borderless routes. The roads will allow in more illegal aliens, terrorists, and criminals, ruin our economy, and replace American law with “trade” law.
Giuliani’s senior foreign policy advisor is CFR member Norman Podhoretz, who promotes perpetual war and is described by the New York Times as “one of the founding fathers of neoconservatism.” In his new book “World War IV,” Podhoretz proudly declares that the Iraq war will spread to Iran and other countries in the Middle East and “will almost certainly go on for three or four decades.” That’s 30 to 40 years! What do you think about that?
Ron Paul says the war in Iraq “was sold to us with false information” and “the area is more dangerous now than when we entered it…. We can continue to fund and fight no-win police actions around the globe, or we can refocus on securing America and bring the troops home. No war should ever be fought without a declaration of war voted upon by the Congress, as required by the Constitution.” (www.RonPaul2008.com)
Podhoretz and others in the CFR-neocon cabal believe in global socialism, endless war, and destroying national sovereignty, which is why they have opened U.S. borders to a flood of millions of illegal aliens. The elites are using illegals to help destroy America’s middle class and merge the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.
At the same time, the CFR-controlled mainstream corporate media monopoly scares Americans 24 hours a day, babbling about the so-called “war on terror.” This phony “war” is an excuse for gradually establishing tighter government controls over every part of our daily lives through congressional and local police-state bills and Bush administration Executive Orders.
A month after Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in Nazi Germany in 1933, the Reichstag parliament building was set on fire. Hitler then quickly suspended civil liberties. Some believe the Nazis set the fire to give Hitler an excuse for his crackdown. Whether or not that is true, the fact remains that civil liberties were suspended. German soldiers then ordered citizens to “Show me your papers!”
Such orders are coming to America through the REAL ID-compliant driver’s license scheme, thanks again to Congress and the so-called Department of Homeland Security. Mandatory biometric ID cards will carry all sorts of personal data. Federal and state bureaucrats tell us the de facto national ID cards will “fight crime and prevent terrorism.” Yet these same public servants refuse to secure our borders and enforce existing immigration laws.
I know only too well how our liberties and privacy are being eroded by unelected enforcers. During a five-day period, I was interrogated by FBI and Secret Service agents while researching and writing my book on immigration anarchy. I was not charged with a crime or arrested, but FBI agents held me against my will and wouldn’t let me call a lawyer, thanks to the so-called “Patriot Act.” I wrote about the experience in my book’s epilogue, titled “My Vacation with the FBI.”
Ron Paul has fought for civil liberties for many years. “We must stop the move toward a national ID card system,” he says on his campaign website. “I sponsored a bill to overturn the Patriot Act and have won some victories, but today the threat to your liberty and privacy is very real. We need leadership at the top that will prevent Washington from centralizing power and private data about our lives.”
And please don’t tell me Bush “has kept us safe” and the “war on terror” is real. Since 9/11, more than six years ago, the administration and Congress (both Republicans and Democrats) have allowed millions of foreigners, including hundreds of thousands of known felons, dangerous criminals, and untold thousands of potential terrorists, to invade our nation and live among us, with impunity.
As I wrote in my book, T. J. Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council, representing U.S. border agents, told a national conference of immigration experts in December 2004 that 10,000 illegal aliens cross our southern border every day and only about 3,000 are apprehended.
In October 2006, a congressional report titled “A Line in the Sand” stated that “as many as 4 million to 10 million illegal aliens crossed into the United States” from Mexico just in 2005. Based on that report, apparently thousands were from “countries that could export individuals that could bring harm to our country in the way of terrorism.” The report received virtually no coverage from the CFR-run mass media. I was one of the first to report the mind-blowing numbers in this article.
What legitimate government would let this happen to its own people and country, while repeatedly telling Americans through the “mainstream media” and phony talk-show hosts that we are in a “war on terror”? The answer can only be: A thoroughly corrupt government creating chaos and intent upon ending American sovereignty. The people running our government are not Americans. They are internationalists and only interested in greed, power, and control. In my opinion, many are psychopaths.
Returning briefly to the CNN-YouTube Republican presidential debate on November 28, I have wondered why candidates Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter, onstage with Ron Paul, did not speak up and join Paul to oppose the NAFTA Superhighway and the North American Union.
Paul, Tancredo, and Walter Jones were the first congressmen to co-sponsor Representative Virgil Goode’s September 2006 bill demanding that Congress and the president prohibit construction of the superhighway or enter into a North American Union. (Read my news release.) Hunter became a co-sponsor of the bill in 2007. By the end of 2007, more than 40 congressmen had signed on, yet the “mainstream media” and many talk-show personalities still call the North American Union and superhighway a “conspiracy theory.”
Here’s what Ron Paul says on his campaign website about the North American Union:
“NAFTA’s superhighway is just one part of a plan to erase the borders between the U.S. and Mexico, called the North American Union. This spawn of powerful special interests, would create a single nation out of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, with a new unelected bureaucracy and money system. Forget about controlling immigration under this scheme. And a free America, with limited, constitutional government, would be gone forever.”
It cannot be stated any clearer than that. No matter how one feels about any other issue, if this merger through so-called “free-trade” agreements and open borders is not stopped, America, our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and our freedoms will be gone forever. Tens of millions of foreign nationals — including vicious criminals, terrorists, jobs thieves, future welfare recipients, and expectant mothers eager to deliver anchor babies — will destroy our America, and all we hold dear.
As for border security and immigration reform, Paul says on his website that as president he would oppose amnesty, physically secure U.S. borders and coastlines, end birthright citizenship, end welfare for illegal aliens, enforce visa rules, and restore the rule of law.
Those actions would have a monumental impact on the immigration crisis and the North American Union. I believe Paul’s promise to America. Throughout his 10-term service in the U.S. House of Representatives, Paul has never voted for a bill unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the U.S. Constitution, setting him apart from all other congressmen, senators, and presidents in recent decades. In other words, this is an American who actually takes his oath to the Constitution seriously. That proves to me that Paul is honest.
Paul should take even more steps to end illegal immigration, especially in regards to workplace enforcement. He should publicly state that he will enforce laws against the hiring of illegal aliens.
Also, Paul should acknowledge problems due to unprecedented high numbers of legal immigrants. Legal immigration is out of control, thanks once again to Congress, as approximately 1.3 million legal immigrants come to the U.S. every year, compared with America’s traditional level of about 250,000 a year. Paul should oppose chain migration, which generates an endless supply of uneducated, unskilled, high-fertility new immigrants to the U.S. National immigration expert Roy Beck, executive vice president of NumbersUSA, says this about chain migration:
“Ending chain migration is the single most effective action for reducing negative immigration impacts. Chain migration breeds all kinds of illegal immigration among extended family who feel they have an entitlement to immigrate and don’t wait their turn. Chain migration multiplies the harm of every immigration action by allowing each new immigrant and refugee to eventually import huge extended families and eventually whole villages.”
But remember this extremely important point: There would not be an illegal-alien invasion if the Council on Foreign Relations were not working through the White House and Congress to merge Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. into a social, economic, and political union. If the North American Union is not stopped, America will disappear forever.
Finally, have you noticed that the U.S. financial system is collapsing? This is because the U.S. has had a pure fiat (“on faith”) money system since the early 1970s, when the Nixon administration took us off the gold standard, in violation of the U.S. Constitution. The gold standard stood in the way of big government spending on welfare programs, wars, and empire.
The Federal Reserve, a private bank run by global bankers, prints dollars backed by nothing. Congress spends, and spends, and spends those dollars. The Fed prints more of this paper, with nothing to support its value, and the dollar continues to collapse. Talking heads now report that the U.S. is more than $9 trillion in debt. The day of reckoning is coming and it isn’t going to be pretty.
Ron Paul wants to abolish the Federal Reserve. He also wants to eliminate the income tax and replace it with reduced spending. (See Aaron Russo’s DVD, “Freedom to Fascism,” for more information: http://www.freedomtofascism.com/).
“We need a new method to prioritize our spending,” says Paul. “It’s called the Constitution of the United States.”
After spending years studying and writing about the takeover of America, and the CFR’s plans to destroy our beloved nation, I believe presidential candidate Ron Paul’s plan to restore the Constitution and Bill of Rights offers the only viable plan to save America.
I strongly endorse Ron Paul for President!
