For those of you who still think that our leaders care about securing our borders, the evidence, clear and abundant, reveals just the opposite. The pattern for regional and global governance, which includes free movement of people across borders, is currently being implemented in the construction of trading regions such as North America. It would be followed by the Western Hemisphere, which would include integration with North America. Another example would be the African Union.
These regions are based on the European Union model of governing; a regional parliament and other institutions. The African Union already has theirs and the U.S., Canada and Mexico have the same setup planned for North America, as noted on pages 31-32 of the Council on Foreign Relations road map for Building a North American Community. Much of this road map has been implemented.
And remember, before there was a European Union, there was a European Community. The EU is now in the final stages of becoming a united Europe with one constitution, having sovereignty over all member nations. For most of Europe, there is now free movement within the EU without checks. America, too, is marching toward regional and global governance, in step and right behind the EU. According to the EUROPA website:
“On 21 December 2007, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia joined the Schengen area…,” an area where the borders are open.
“A year later, on 12 December 2008, Swiss accession followed. It is now possible to travel from the Iberian Peninsula to the Baltic States and from Greece to Finland without border checks.” This open borders travel is now available to over 400 million EU citizens and properly cleared foreign travelers.
Freedom of movement for citizens is what the leaders of North America want for the continent. To make this happen they need a common outer security perimeter for North America, which would open the interior borders for people and commerce. This is spelled out in the CFR plan, recognized by the U.S. Department of State as the road map for the integration of North America. From the CFR plan:
“Move to full labor mobility between Canada and the United States. To make companies based in North America as competitive as possible in the global economy, Canada and the United States should consider eliminating all remaining barriers to the ability of their citizens to live and work in the other country. This free flow of people would offer an important advantage to employers in both countries by giving them rapid access to a larger pool of skilled labor, and would enhance the well-being of individuals in both countries by enabling them to move quickly to where their skills are needed.
“In the long term, the two countries should work to extend this policy to Mexico as well, though doing so will not be practical until wage differentials between Mexico and its two North American neighbors have diminished considerably.”
Translated, that means a larger pool of mobile, cheap labor, working temporary jobs with no company benefits. That means growing unemployment for Americans. No more American dream. See pages 26-28, CFR plan link (road map) highlighted above.
This plan for an integrated North America requires “specific policy, statutory, and procedural changes in all three nations.” For the United States, this legislation has been slipped into the current comprehensive immigration bill, H.R. 4321.
Open borders in the EU means that member nations must become responsible for the EU’s outer perimeter, as they will be in North America. From EUROPA:
“Freedom to travel and lifting of internal borders cannot come at the expense of security. Therefore, every Member State that joins the Schengen area has to prove that it is ready to take on the responsibility for the control of the external borders of the Union on behalf of the other Member States and for the issuing of Schengen visas. It has to cooperate efficiently with law enforcement agencies in other Member States, in order to be able to guarantee a high level of security after border control between the Member States has been abolished.”
This free movement of people and commerce within the continent is what Obama, Clinton and Napolitano are working on. This latest immigration bill gives responsibility to the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security for completing a common security perimeter for North America. See Obama’s Amnesty Bill.
More from page 6 of the CFR plan for North America:
“Our economic focus should be on the creation of a common economic space (EU) that expands opportunities for all people in the region, a space in which trade, capital, and people flow freely.”
“Progress on security…will allow a more open border for the movement of goods and people; progress on regulatory matters will reduce the need for active customs administration and release resources to boost security. North American solutions could ultimately serve as the basis for initiatives involving other like-minded countries, either in our hemisphere or more broadly.”
Obama and Clinton are in the beginning steps of implementing George Bush’s Pathways to Prosperity in the Americas initiative, a trading region of the Western Hemisphere, made up of 34 nations.
In addition to the “free flow of people” (citizens) across North America, this latest amnesty bill calls for “exploring methods for Canada, Mexico, and the United States to waive visa requirements for nationals and citizens of the same foreign countries; H.R. 4321, Sec. 143, (a), (b), (3), (C).
This freedom of movement will include foreign travelers who are cleared before they arrive in another country. The goal is to have open borders in a global community where standards and laws are harmonized and everyone can be found on a database.
The next step is to integrate the regions of the world (forming partnerships) under a globalized system of governance:
“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.” Prof. Phillip Bom, 1992.
“…Let us create regional continental units…the European Union, an American Union, which I’ve been pushing too–and this is how you got the trade agreement between the US and Canada. And then we’ll take the five continents, and…if they’re united, will create a World Union.” Robert Muller, Global Citizenship 2000 Youth Congress.
Toward this end, George Bush, Angela Merkel, President of the EU, and Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, signed “a new transatlantic economic partnership at a summit in Washington” on April 30, 2007. It would “boost trade and investment by harmonising regulatory standards (like NAFTA), laying the basis for a single US-EU market.” It also sets up a framework for advancing deep EU-US integration by 2015.
The process for implementing this integration includes meetings by members of the U.S. Congress and the European Union Parliament and Council. According to the Transatlantic Policy Network, this has been going on since 1998:
“To help strengthen the (political) dialogue, an expansion or formal enhancement of legislative branch forums in transatlantic relations should be considered. Such an expansion or enhancement would build upon the Transatlantic Legislators Dialogue between the members of the European Parliament and the US Congress. Ideas for active consideration could include a “Transatlantic Assembly” of legislators…”
That, of course, would be an EU/US Parliament. See the names of American legislators, both Republican and Democrat, who are on board with regional and global governance at the expense of our sovereign republic.
Our NAFTA partners, Canada and Mexico, have similar agreements with the EU. Canada is in the process of negotiating a Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and Mexico is building on its Strategic Partnership with the EU.
That, in fact, would mean North America and the European Union are in “harmony” regarding this deepening relationship. All the United States has to do now is get that common security perimeter in place to make a North American Community a reality.
The European Union, the model for regional and global governance, also agreed to an AU-EU Strategic Partnership, an integration with the African Union, in December of 2007.
As with the United States, the EU meets with all levels of the African Union to develop this integration:
“At parliamentary level, regular contacts and meetings take place between ad hoc delegations from the European Parliament and the Panafrican Parliament. The presidents of both parliaments also meet on a regular basis.
“To facilitate ongoing dialogue, an AU representation has been set up in Brussels and an EU delegation to the AU in Addis Ababa.”
Under this Africa-EU Partnership:
“Africa has adopted socio-economic and political integration as a key development strategy. The EU has undergone a successful process of integration and can usefully share its experience with Africa.”
Some items on the agenda:
- Support the African Integration agenda.
- Implement the EU-Africa Infrastructure Partnership.
Some objectives are:
- regional and continental integration
- ensuring that all the millennium Development Goals are met in all African countries by 2015
The EU and Mexico, like all regional strategic partnerships, “are committed to the principles of international law (UN), multilateralism, international development cooperation… They have agreed that the Strategic Partnership reflects both sides’ commitment to advance to a new stage in their relationship, complementing the Global Agreement by means of its focus on fostering cooperation and coordination between the two parties on the multinational stage. EU-Mexico Joint Communique, Nov. 26-27 2009.
It’s obvious that activity aimed at regional and global governance and the end of the sovereign nation state is on the fast track. It’s also obvious that there is no opposition to this flow of history. And so the next 30 years will be decisive, the most important 30 years in the history of the human race. It doesn’t look promising.
