INDEPENDENCE OR INTERDEPENDENCE: WHICH WILL IT BE?
by Todd Brendan Fahey
Vicente Fox - Mexico's President - is working 24/7 on a plan which would erase the U.S./Mexico border and make meaningless any question of national citizenship. The London Telegraph, in its interview with our southern neighbor, reports the following exchange:
Mr Fox wants a NAFTA convergence programme, along the lines of the European Union's, "whereby the Mexican economy has to converge on fundamental variables with the US and Canadian economy." This, he believes, would help Mexico to develop and improve wages. He also envisages the North American Development Bank, a NAFTA institution, pouring money into Mexico's poorer areas, much as the EU has funded projects in its poorer member states.
This, Mr Fox promises, would help to staunch the torrent of migrants from Mexico to the United States.
There was a time, only 20 years ago really, when such talk from a foreign leader would have constituted "fighting words" -- prompting a blood-pressure check by rust-belt Reagan Democrats, southern Dixiecrats and all but the pinkest of New England Republicans. An "Americas without borders" is the stuff of every Socialist utopia--a vision straight out of Bertrand Russell or Marx himself. Laughable. The militia of the Founders-era would have taken up arms and manned the border themselves, were such a thing really being contemplated.
But it is being contemplated, and the chief proponents of this scheme are Republicans: Congressman Henry Hyde (R-IL), Secretary of State Colin Powell and President George W. Bush.
We saw a trial-balloon floated through the Establishment media at the end of July, indicating that Mr. Bush might grant "amnesty" to 3 million undocumented Mexican migrants; just as quickly, we (or, as a veteran of political bulletin boards) heard a collective Bronx cheer from "the base," those to whom Mr. Bush owes his razor-thin margin of victory.
None among the White House staff would take credit for that news leak, but this week see officially, in an 8/10/01 report by Associated Press, Secretary Powell being quoted as saying, following Mr. Fox's U.K. interview: "We want a system that focuses on fairness. The immigration system must be fair...the only path must be the legal path," Mr Powell said. "We want to make sure that migration to the United States from Mexico is safe, legal, orderly and dignified," he added. [Translated: Congress must change its immigration laws, so as to conform with the wishes of Mexico's President and the Mexican people; &, we'll even make sure they come to the U.S. in air-conditioned vehicles, with complimentary continental breakfast and a beverage service, how's that for "compassionate"?]
President Bush last week stated publicly, referring to Mexican laborers who cross the border into the United States: "Remember, we've got hardworking citizens who are willing to walk 400 miles of desert in blistering heat to find work." [Translated: "Their country sucks big-time, the Mexican economy is in the toilet, no one there -- from left to right -- can figure out a solution, and, well, upkeep on the ranch is pretty pricey these days... Linda Chavez, who was forced to withdraw from a Cabinet post in the Bush administration, for giving a similarly illegal immigrant free room and board at her own home, was unavailable for comment.]
Not to be outdone, and evidently not wanting to offend the other 2 billion underprivileged souls who occupy that region from Nogales to Tierra del Fuego, Henry Hyde, chairman of the House Committee on International Relations, proposed in a speech delivered to graduates of the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, the creation of a Commonwealth of the Americas, "a permanent zone of peace, prosperity, and security throughout the entire Western Hemisphere" -- a hemispheric open-borders plan, which actually "one-ups" Vicente Fox's U.S./Canada/Mexico alliance.
Let's listen in on Hyde's speech, for a moment:
"This is not a utopian vision; much of the foundation for this Commonwealth has already been laid, the product of several decades of effort that extends to virtually every country in North and South America. Its most prominent achievements include the spread of democracy, the embrace of free markets, the defeat of communism and other threats to freedom, and a growing recognition that the interests of individual countries are best advanced through cooperation and an openness to the world. Despite their undoubted benefits, however, these accomplishments have no guarantee of permanence. In fact, many are under threat even as we speak. If they are to be made lasting, if their promise is to be fully realized, we must seize this historic opportunity to reshape our hemisphere and preserve its blessings indefinitely." (Source: Press Release, Henry Hyde's Congressional Office, July 13, 2001; issued by Hyde staffer Sam Stratman, (202) 226-7875.)
But at least Mr. Hyde comes clean as to the duration by which these designs have been festering. Until now, only the so-called "kooks" of the "Radical Right," like the John Birch Society, have alleged that there is, in fact, at work a scheme which shall subjugate the sovereign Republic that is the United States of America to more uniform (Translated: More top-heavy, unwieldly, oppressive, tyrannical and expensive) governmental structure. The Trilateral Commission -- brought to U.S. in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski) has long proposed the triumvirate of Western/European/Asian super-governments, which would, then, as has been proposed since 1921 by the Council on Foreign Relations, be "integrated" completely, seamlessly, lovingly, into a World State, ostensibly under the United Nations.
That this current George W. Bush administration is rife at the top with members of the Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations, as have been every administration since FDR's, should come as no surprise to anyone who purports to know anything about politics. (To wit: Members of this administration holding membership in either the CFR or TC, or both, are: George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice, Richard Armitage, Paul Wolfowitz, John D. Negroponte, Christie Todd Whitman, and the list goes on.)
Let this stand as a bare-bones preview of a more detailed examination of the future plans for the USofA by those power-brokers in our landscape who hold Globalist beliefs. And don't take mine, or anyone else's word, for this: Do your own Google or Northernlight or AltaVista search on the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and Trilateral Commission, as well as investigating their respective Web sites (Council on Foreign Relations and The Trilateral Commission). Get hip. Use the tools before you. Be proactive. Seize this opportunity to tell Messrs. Hyde, Bush and Powell where they can put their Commonwealth of the Americas.
Oh, almost forgot: The Honorable Henry Hyde is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations; and Vicente Fox is a member of the Trilateral Commission.
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." (Matt. 7:15-20).
