If things go as Obama planned, the 34 nations, 35 if Cuba gets on board, would be integrated under the Pathways to Prosperity in the Americas Initiative (PPA). This trading region would be headquartered and governed from Miami, Florida since the USSOUTHCOM (army of the south) is already headquartered there and the area is overwhelmingly Spanish-speaking. As part of regional integration, every person in the Americas will be on a civil registry and the info would be on interconnected databases that can be accessed on a system that is currently working toward a common language (glossary) for every civil registry site in the Americas. Each person’s data can be accessed from the tip of South America to Alaska. (more later)

George W. Bush waited for his Pearl Harbor (09/11/01) so that he could impose restrictions on American citizens and, as his father said often, implement a “New World Order.” That included the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), an integrated region of the Americas with elements of regional and global governance and an end to the sovereign nation state. The project came to a halt when several South American countries refused in 2005 and the project became dormant.

His next effort was to initiate the integration of North America, including Canada, Mexico, and the United States, at a meeting in Waco, Texas on March 23, 2005. It was a project to show that regional integration could work for the whole hemisphere. Along with that came the Real ID, a drivers license or an ID card with personal data and a unique identifier. It’s still in the process of implementation.

Bush would try again to integrate the Americas with his PPA project, announced just before he left office. After Obama was elected president, Bush briefed him and the new president agreed to complete the integration of North America, along with the rest of the Americas. When finished, the Americas would be under regional governance, as in the European Union.

The United States is coming close to having full compliance with Real ID, the national ID card. The next deadline for compliance is January 15, 2013. That’s for everybody. At this time Canada is working on their ID system for North America and President Calderon of Mexico launched his biometric ID card for everyone between 5 and 18 years of age in January of 2011. The other citizens will be given ID cards next.

The ID cards will be accessed by the U.S. government, other governments and eventually others will search for you, since it’s a shame to waste all those projects when you have the capabilities.  Think about it. Big brother knows where you live, information about you and where you travel. Just in case you might be a dissident someday or you may have a gun, illegal in the Americas.

The PPA, that is the Caribbean and Latin American part of the Americas that Obama is trying to integrate, is already well on its way (with U.S. help) to completing the civil registration of every person in the Americas, whether they want to or or not. Exactly like Americans and Real ID.

In 2006, the United Nations* Children’s Fund, the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States and the Inter-Development Bank for Cooperation in the Area of Citizen Registration…” decided to, among other things, pursue civil registration for every person in the Americas, excepting the United States and Canada*, which are also working on their national IDs, with the basic information that you would find on civil registration records or a drivers license.

This joint project is called the “Inter-American Program For Universal Civil Registry And The Right To Identity.” The target date is 2015, when birth registration, which is used to ensure the right to identity, with emphasis on persons in poverty and at risk, is universal, accessible, and, if possible, cost-free. A few of the objectives:

  • 5.b. The states will, to the extent possible, consider factors aimed at harmonizing laws in force in the various member states in the area of the identity of persons. (The term “harmonizing” is used in the integration of nations. The North American Community, for example, is constantly harmonizing laws, rules, processes, everything they can as they make one unified region and end the sovereignty of each formerly separate nation. The Americas will be harmonized if no one stops the process of integration.)
  • 5.c The states will foster uniformity in registry systems, so as to obtain instruments that will enable their use in the various member states. (The 34 nations of the Americas, including the United States, will harmonize their systems so that any nation or organization can ask for data and receive it over a network. This interconnectedness, based on commerce and trade agreements, will eventually extend to the rest of the world. And the information will continue to grow for each individual in the register. It makes control of all citizens a lot easier now. And that’s why it’s there.)

Some specific measures that are being used to register people:

  • 2.k The states will register all girls and boys immediately after birth and will promote late registration of adults in accordance with their domestic legislation and any obligations they have incurred by pertinent international instruments. To that end, with the support of the General Secretariat and specialized agencies of the inter-American system when such support is requested, the states will strive to acquire the required technological equipment and software.
  • 2.l. The states, with the support of the General Secretariat when such support is requested, will promote the design and execution of massive civil registry campaigns that include all relevant measures to guarantee access to registration and the actual registration of boys and girls, adolescents, and adults.
  • 2.m. Likewise, the states will promote late registration of those adults who have not been registered, thereby attempting to ensure that registration of the parents helps to ensure effective registration of their children.
  • 3.h. The states will take advantage of services and programs provided by the state to verify that all children accessing them have their civil registry IDs. If they do not, parents, and guardians should be helped with the process of applying for and obtaining them.

Follow-up on implementation of the Program:

  • 6.b. Hold a meeting in the CAJP framework in 2010 to assess progress with implementation of the program, based on the information provided by the states and a progress report by the General Secretariat, with a view to making any changes to the Program that are appropriate in order to reach the goal of achieving universal registry by 2015. ( The U.S. and Canada will have their programs in place and ready for integration. Everyone in the hemisphere will have an ID card in the system.)

The project for universal civil registration in the Americas is continuing to make progress. The latest is a glossary to bring about harmonization toward a common (civil registry) language for the nations of this hemisphere so that information could be understood throughout the Americas.

Mario Marcel, Manager (ICF) Inter-American Development Bank, remarked on this latest achievement toward the integration of the Americas:

“Civil registration and citizen identification have gained importance in recent years, given their multiple implications for human development, particular in the areas of poverty reduction, education, health, governance, and democracy.

“Efficient and universal registration increases the reliability of vital statistics, which are the foundation for inclusive social policies. It enables all citizens to have a legal identity…”

“In the Latin America region, different terminology is used in different countries to describe the same term or activity. The Latin American Council on Civil Registration, Identification, and Vital Statistics (CLARCIEV) has expressed in promoting a common language for the region’s registries and this glossary makes an important contribution to reaching this objective. While the glossary was originally developed in Spanish, there is also a need for an English version.

“The main objective of this glossary is to standardize terminology in this field in order to achieve more harmonious communication among civil registration and identification systems in the region…”

“With this glossary, the IDB hopes to make a contribution to the process of harmonization of terminology and modernization of civil registries. Due to the multiple ongoing modifications of legislation concerning this subject–which includes changes to civil codes–there is a great diversity in national regulations. In view of this diversity, a common institutional nomenclature is essential to facilitate greater regional integration.”  (pp 5,6)

Remember that President Obama is pushing for the integration of the 34 nations of the Americas (PPA) and already has 14 member nations on board with trade agreements. There is already a security force, USSOUTHCOM, an integrated response force for the Caribbean and Latin America. Once all of the nations of the Americas are tied together by trade agreements, they can support an agreement signed by all, forming a trading region with rules and regulations that will govern the Americas. And there is already a parliament of the Organization of American States.  And if there is any conflict between, say, the United States Constitution and the document governing the  region, our Constitution must defer to the Americas. We are just one of 34 (or 35) integrated nations of the Americas.

*Note: The three nations of North America need to account for all citizens and visitors in their nation (civil registration or national ID)  when declaring operational  control of their borders. Then they can announce a common security perimeter around the three nations, allowing for the opening of the mutual internal borders between the U.S. and Mexico and between the U.S. and Canada. Eventually all citizens of North America can live and work anywhere on the North American continent and will not be asked for their ID cards when crossing borders.

Obama announced (Feb. 4, 2011) that he and Prime Minister Harper are going to build a North American perimeter around the two countries. A working group from both nations is in the process of developing this perimeter (Mexico would follow after their internal problems are solved). Obama has, essentially, declared that the three nations are going to become one area with governing institutions,  but without the permission of Congress or the American citizens. This is the last step before North American integration, following in the path of the European Union.  And, of course, the final step here is the further integration of the Americas, with the headquarters or secretariat, in Miami.

And this is how it ends for the United States of America.  A large part would be claimed by Mexicans. Spanish would be the dominant language.  There would be so much diversity, no one would care anymore. America could just simply whither away. But I think that violence will play a big part as the most powerful nation in the history of the world becomes only a memory.
