“Within the next hundred years…, nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; al states will recognize a single authority. A phrase briefly fashionable in the mid-20th century- ‘citizen of the world’-will have assumed real meaning by the end of the 21st century.” [Strobe Talbott, TIME, July 20, 1992]
“But I do have a cautionary note. And this is a puzzle that we will have to work out in the next years, not just we, but all nations. With globalization you get technology coming over the borders, and governments not having as much control over their populations as they did, but the nation-state is still the only focus of democratic legitimacy. There is no democracy above the nation-state.” (Only global governance)
That was Claude Barfield in a “Conversation about Globalization,” which can be found on a U.S. Department of State website. The fact is, in America, Democrats and Republicans are both working toward a New Global Order (or New World Order, as George H. W. Bush calls it), with some differences.
Note: (The U.S. Department of State has deleted, within days, every link I have published with them over the last two years. These links provided info on the administration’s efforts and support toward building a North American Community. The link to the article, “Conversation about Globalization” above was removed from their “new” site the same day I published it. They could bring it up again, however, since they do monitor traffic into their site.)
The bottom line is that our sovereign republic will no longer exist as various institutions, both public and private, will govern through international law, UN agreements (Remember the Law of the Sea Treaty, a favorite of George Bush), trade agreements and regional governments, like the European Union. The United States will be part of a trading region of the Western Hemisphere, which will have sovereignty over the member states in its growing area of competence.
There are now two unelected trinational institutions exercising sovereignty over the United States. Under NAFTA’s Chapter 11, an unelected trade tribunal has reviewed American court decisions, (See page xiv). And they can also review decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court. Any decisions made by the tribunal are final. Unconstitutional? Of course. But no one has seen the need to challenge it. (Google nytimes, NAFTA, chapter 11)
And over at the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC) was institutionalized in June of 2006 at the U.S. Department of Commerce. The NACC consists of 30 CEOs, 10 from each of the NAFTA member nations; Canada, Mexico and the United States.
The American branch includes CEOs from corporations such as: NBCU/General Electric. Campbell Soup Company and Lockheed-Martin Corporation. Members are appointed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which, along with the Council of the Americas, make up the Secretariat of the U.S. NACC.
These CEOs meet with our “ministers,” Michael Chertoff, Condoleezza Rice, Carlos Gutierrez and the president to give them “advice” by informing them of the policies, regulations and laws (already prepared) needed for merging the continent. CEOs of the other two member nations are following the same procedures with their governments. The process operates, without transparency, out of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Prime Minister Harper of Canada made it clear who is running North America:
“We committed to further engage the private sector. We’ve agreed to set up a North American Competitiveness Council, made up of business leaders from all three countries, to advise us on ways to improve the competitiveness of our economies. They will meet with our ministers, identify priorities, and make sure we follow up and implement them.”
The NACC is making decisions that affect all Americans as well as Canadians and Mexicans. They are a group of unelected corporate executives who are destroying the sovereignty of our nation and the right of citizens to choose their leaders and have a say in what laws are passed. When this corporate/government cabal succeed in their quest to integrate North America and the Western Hemisphere as a trading region, integration with the European Union is next.
George Bush had already started his “economic” integration with the European Union when he signed an agreement in Washington for a “new transatlantic economic partnership” between the United States and the EU on April 30, 2007. It will include a permanent “economic council” with cabinet level members from the U.S. and their equivalent from the EU. Also members of the European Parliament and the U.S. Congress have been meeting for 10 years to decide on ways to bring about deeper integration. If you never heard of this, go to this blog, archives, July 22, 2008 and see “A Single Political Framework for U.S.-European Union by 2015?” Find out if your representative or senator is part of this EU-U.S. legislature.
Where are we heading?
“With the full commitment of the European Commission and the U.S. administration, including regulatory officials, and a more active role for members of the European Parliament and the U.S. Congress, the process of creating a Transatlantic Market will be an integral step in the evolution toward an eventual Transatlantic Partnership agreement, embracing the economic, political and strategic totality of the EU-U.S. relationship.” May 2008 TPN Report on Completing the Transatlantic Market.
Bush recently launched a new attempt to revive the Free Trade Area Of the Americas (FTAA) with his “Pathways to Prosperity in the Americas” initiative. As with the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, the initiative has U.S. ministers who will meet with ministers of 11 nations from Central and South America that agreed to this integration. President Obama now has to decide if he will pursue this integration of the Western Hemisphere, a corporate trading region that doesn’t have enforceable protection for workers or the environment. See “George Bush: Rushing to initiate a new integrated Western Hemisphere before leaving office,” Nov, 9, 2008, new blog.
This integration will lead to a merger of the European Union and the Americas. Bush and others in Congress, Democrats and Republicans, are on board with this, including mergers with more regions, which are also in the works. Again, all of these economic regions will be harmonized, and, as Bush and a leader of the EU said in a joint declaration on June 10, 2008:
“We seek a world based on international law, democracy, the rule of law and human rights, and strengthened by broad and sustainable market-based economic growth.”
“We are committed to support effective multilateralism, based on a stronger and more efficient United Nations. We will work to strengthen the United Nations so that it can better fulfill the goals and objectives set forth in its mandate…”
The rights mentioned above conflict with parts of our Constitution. Take the First Amendment, free speech. Read the United Nations Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
2. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; (BUT)
3. The rights provided for in paragraph 2 of this article carries with it SPECIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES (my caps). It may therefore be subject to certain restrictions, but these shall only be such as are provided by law and are NECESSARY.” An example: “xenophobia” or “racist” speech, even on the internet, can bring prison time in the EU.
Read this blog, archives, Aug. 7, 2008, “European Union: Free Speech can get you 3 years in prison. Is America Next?” The answer is yes.
Note this: Members and prospective members of the European Union must change their constitutions if they are not in accord with the new EU treaty. That is The Lisbon Treaty, another name for the previously rejected EU Constitution.
President Vaclac Klaus of the Czech Republic said:
“The Lisbon Treaty has started a process at the end of which the EU will be the sovereign that will order its rules not only to individual members, but also to their citizens.”
And “We already had to change our Constitution before accession to the European Union…”
The same thing is happening to America through NAFTA, the SPP, trade agreements, integrated trading regions and stealth legislation (amnesty bills), This continuing assault will result in the end of American sovereignty, and eventually, our nation’s very existence.
Professor Philip Bom, in 1992 predicted the end game exactly as it is now playing out:
“The European Community will be transformed into an all-European union. So, too, the Americas will be transformed into an integrated region of the new global order…”
“What is new is the drive and determination to develop common markets for political economic integration. Correspondingly, there is the determination to institutionalize interdependence: a new global order through regional, bilateral and multilateral regulations…and through joint parliamentary bodies.” Philip C. Bom, The Coming Century of Commonism: the Beauty and the Beast of Global Governance.
George Bush, in his National Security Strategy of the United States, June 1, 2002, declared:
“The administration will work with Congress to enact new bilateral, regional, and global trade agreements that will be concluded under the recently passed Trade Promotion Authority.” p.18
“The United States and other democracies in the Western Hemisphere have agreed to create the Free Trade Area of the Americas targeted for completion by 2005. p.19
Carl Teichrib, commenting on Philip Bom in 2003:
“…the governments of North and South America are on the verge of reinventing the entire economic and political hemisphere. In retrospect, there is a sad and ironic twist to Mr. Bom’s statement; first, most American citizens are presently too poorly informed to ‘rethink’ the role of the Americas in a new international order-unfortunately, to the average person, this subject is considered either too complex to understand or completely outside the realm of reality.”
Throughout this article you will notice there was no mention of American democracy or a constitutional republic as aworking part of this new global order. That’s because it will have withered away. Still existing but having lost any real power, a process which member nations of the EU are undergoing now. England and Germany, for example, are rubber stamps for up to 80 percent of their legislation, which is initiated and passed by the EU Parliament. The Lisbon Treaty will grab more power, including judicial and police.
“Each nation is different, each nation is unique-with unique histories, traditions, cultures, economic and political systems. Ultimately, however, the globalization of hemispheric free trade runs counter to national independence, bringing each of the participating countries into a converged economic, political, and military structure. Think of it as a ‘grand chess play,’ where the average citizen doesn’t even make the grade of ‘pawn.'” Carl Teichrib
Bill Clinton has given speeches around the world on global governance. At Yale University, November 8, 2003, he said:
“My basic premise is this: the interdependent world, for all its promise, is inevitably unsustainable, because it is unstable…
“I think the great mission of the 21st century is to make it a genuine global community. To move from mere interdependence to integration, to a community…”
The words and deeds of those who would control the world are clear. That is their plan. They are trying hard to make it happen. Think about it.
Do you care at all about the dystopian future awaiting you or will you genuflect before the soulless state.
