Just as I thought. You know nothing about the specifics of the rather benign NAI and are just spewing conflations with some vague "NWO" scenario.


You are delusional. I do not believe in some NWO conspiracy bullsh*t.

Try studying capitalism, including its advanced stage of financialism, otherwise known as empiricism. Right now we have empiricism on a global level; the people at the top are the extremely wealthy. The US is both the political and military tool of the globalists, while the globalist institutions are the IMF, World Bank, and the WTO.

The US is the leading force of global exploitation: it not only encourages, but also carries out the exploitation of weaker nations and their populations to support themselves. The US government works hand in hand with the globalist elite because they support each other.

They clearly have vast control over a lot of the world, but the fact is that all empires fall and the US will fall hard. When the US loses its modes of production in the third world brutal CIA-imposed dictatorships in South America, Asia and Africa, it will inevitably collapse.

A North American Union will only work to help the US survive because it will provide economic and resource security, at our cost. We will be exploited on a level never before encountered, yet has always been on the planning tables of the US government even before confederation.

You speak of being joint US-Canadian? No wonder why you do not share the same views as the rest of Canada. Perhaps it is from the lack of education, or just the fact that you choose to look at Canada as some bitch state that should do whatever the US wants it to, somehow for our benefit. We have never benefited from "free trade" with the US, and we will never benefit from any other integration with them.

If you don't like the idea of Canadian sovereignty and autonomy, then get out of my country please- and leave your Canadian passport at the border.

Yeah? Well guess what, those in power think the same. Know what the difference is? They don't have any intention of the world becoming a fair and equal society if borders are erased; they aim for a global regime run by the globalist elite.

Canada's integration into the USA is key for it would secure resources necessary for the US to exist strongly in this new century. It will also give them a lot of room to expand their industry and exploit our resources.

Perhaps you people may not see the problem with my country becoming one with the US, but I certainly do, and it's not exactly hard to see it yourself when you look at what NAFTA was promised to the public to be and what it turned out to be: Canada, with a far smaller population and industrial complex than the US, becomes easily consumed by the larger US until the only solution proposed is more integration.

You can bet your ass that this has been planned for decades, or I guess it even goes back to the days of confederation when the US kept trying to assimilate territories like Manitoba and BC/Vancouver Island Colony and the territories had to unite all in the name of a union against the United States. I guess those who don't see the problem with the NAU obviously haven't paid attention to history, like the very reason why Canada was formed in 1867 and this little thing called "manifest destiny".

Excellent, Dimitri Dzengalshlevi, you got it. You understand this would be a loss of sovereignty for Canada.
It would be a loss of sovereignty for the US as well.

What these NAU supporters do not understand, is that they are doing it in increments and the end goal includes Mexico. Wrap your head around what that would mean to both the US & Canada. Instant Third World country.

NAFTA & the SPP were forerunners. The CFR (Council of Foreign Relations) plans for building the "North American Community" were to be implemented on Jan 01, 2010. It's the beginning of "Communitarianism" -- the name of the NWO totalitarian government that will be eventually revealed . This is not a joke. It's very real.

They will do it in increments: uniting the US & Canada doesn't sound so bad. They have a lot in common. As soon as they agree to unite, both the US & Canada will lose sovereignty and they will not have the right to object the inclusion of Mexico in the NAU. Of course, TPTB will deny in public that they plan on including Mexico -- until you can't do anything about it.

The people in charge of the NAU will not be elected officials.

Why do you think none of the US presidents have done what they could to secure the border with Mexico?
A work visa program could have been implemented.

Why do you think Obama hammered Arizona for attempting to enforce Federal laws that the Feds will not enforce?

Why do you think the Democrats in Congress stood up and applauded the Mexican President Calderon when he criticized the Arizona governor for trying to enforce the Federal immigration laws?

Why do you think Obama was smirking with Calderon in the Rose Garden during this fight with Arizona? They both know what the endgame is.

Why do you think the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the "right" of foreign countries to sue a US state for enforcing Fed immigration laws?

This plan has been in progress for decades. Back in the 1980's, almost everything in the US went bilingual.

Our economies have been collapsed on purpose. The US Dollar has been collapsed on purpose. Only when the American people have been convinced that the US Dollar is worthless, will they consider adopting a new currency -- the Amero.

An open border with Mexico, will mean millions of desperately poor Mexicans pouring over the border. The Mexican drug gangs are already in the US. Their power will simply expand. What defense does the average Canadian or American have against brutal banditos? One of the things that worries me, is their atrocious treatment of women.

As for Canadian & American professionals: can they compete with bilingual Mexican professionals who will work for less?

The plan all along has been to turn us into a Third World country: a handful of obscenely rich Elites, a small,powerless Middle Class who are servants of the Elites, and masses of poor who will work for next to nothing or join the military for a paycheck. The masses competing with Communist Chinese slave labor.

The Elites will be living in gated enclaves, behind their electrified fences, with their private security forces.

They do not give a flying fig about what happens to the average citizen.

The individual is supposed to have the most power followed by a city government, then the state, and at the very bottom, the federral government. Think about it.

The people who would be at the top of a world government would have more in common with one another than with any of us peons at the bottom. What laws and customs that may work for a small village in China for example would have very little in common with the social structure and needs of a city in the midwest United States.

These supra governments would benefit the so called elites only, giving them a more efficient method to consolidate and execute their self serving goals.

You folks need to think these things through and realize we are meant to be at the top of the power triangle, not the bottom.

That would be an awfully top-heavy triangle.

Geometry fail?


No, Redwookie is right. The human rights of the individual is the starting point, then the rights of individual's local community, on up the chain. Government, judicial system, military and police exist to protect the rights of the individual.

First of all it also includes Mexico. North American Union. Secondly they love to try to convince us how lovely it will be while at the same time they create tighter restrictions on things such as travel between the very places they want to join together. Talk about freedom. Have you checked out the new propsed questionaire for the passport now required to travel including Canada and Mexico. I also wonder how its sounding to the rest of this proposed NAU to merge with the US economy equal to a third world country plus the debt. Are they going to be willing to pick up that tab. You know all the drug cartels or Mexico and the we are better than you Canadians. Just thought I would ask.

This is about the NAI, which really looks nothing like the nonsense scenarios described by those who perpetuate "NAU" theories like superhighways. This is about getting Canada up to speed on security issues so they dont have to suck at the teat of American military defense systems.

What in any of my responses have implied I am not well-versed in the inner workings of various global finance mechanisms you mention? Why do I have the feeling i've been on the ground working wiht this stuff while you were still in grade school?




The US is the leading force of global exploitation: it not only encourages, but also carries out the exploitation of weaker nations and their populations to support themselves. The US government works hand in hand with the globalist elite because they support each other.



And what I am pointing out is that Canada is not separate from that. That's what you dont seem to understand. Canada's interests are inextricably linked to the US's, for better or worse. IT is only juvenile, short-sighted college revolutionaries who think they can bash 'all' americans while ignoring their own complacency.






They clearly have vast control over a lot of the world, but the fact is that all empires fall and the US will fall hard. When the US loses its modes of production in the third world brutal CIA-imposed dictatorships in South America, Asia and Africa, it will inevitably collapse.



Again, do you REALLY think if America collapses it wont have negative effects on Canada? You claim to be well versed in these studies, and yet you seem to imply you think you live in a bubble.



A North American Union will only work to help the US survive because it will provide economic and resource security, at our cost. We will be exploited on a level never before encountered, yet has always been on the planning tables of the US government even before confederation.


Well, for like the 10th time, this isnt about a NAU. But AGAIN, it would benefit ALL of N. America. Your attempt to pretend you and your government are really that different from the states only shows how little you know about the subject. The similarities and common interests FAR outweigh the minor differences.




You speak of being joint US-Canadian? No wonder why you do not share the same views as the rest of Canada. Perhaps it is from the lack of education, or just the fact that you choose to look at Canada as some bitch state that should do whatever the US wants it to, somehow for our benefit. We have never benefited from "free trade" with the US, and we will never benefit from any other integration with them.


So, me being a dual citizen means I have a 'lack of education'? That's not a very well-thought-out argument.


If you don't like the idea of Canadian sovereignty and autonomy, then get out of my country please- and leave your Canadian passport at the border.


LOL. I've asked you TWICE to list some examples of how the information in the OP threatens canadains sovereignty and you havent even attempted to answer it.

Clearly you know nothing about the specifics of the issue and are merely projecting your little liberal college Che Guevaraa complex on issues that in no way relate.

As for it being 'your country', are of Native descent? If not, what makes it more 'your country', than mine? I'm a citizen. I pay taxes, I vote, I participate in civic duties. Perhaps we should both relocate to Europe? Hell, I have a feeling I've been a dual citizen longer than you've even been alive. Maybe you should get out of my continent

An earth without borders would most definitely NOT be FREE!!

I wish people would do their due diligence and research who exactly funds things like open border movements!

Helpful hint: It's the people that benefit from depressing your wages and slowly but surely eroding away your benefits....


As far as the whole Canada NAU thing .... honestly once upon a time I could see how Canada would benefit from integrating with the US... But now Canada has jobs a strong currency and a vibrant economy!

The US, Um.... Well we have the market cornered on debt that couldn't be paid back if we spent every single dollar made in the US for the next two years from every single man woman child and business.

Beyond that we have a crumbling infrastructure, a rapacious defacto new aristocracy who will stop at nothing to accomplish whatever they set out to do, and a failing system that has slowly but surely replaced all the competent people in the public and private sector with those who can be bought and sold.

Canada would do well to Seal it's borders and tread carefully whenever dealing with it's poor, desperate, and VICIOUS neighbor to the south.... (sound familiar guys?) Canada should avoid any serious involvement with the US for the same reason the american public would not want the US to merge with Mexico.

Canada has NOTHING to GAIN and EVERYTHING TO LOSE in the next few years!
Speaking as an American I wish the Canadian Public the best of luck and hope SINCERELY that they will do their best to purge their governments of officials who wish to slowly but surely bind Canada to the falling star of the US government!

The North American Initiative (NAI) is just another way of saying North American Union (NAU) -- re-branding the samo samo. Globalists expect the majority of sheeple to be too stupid to recognize the same old wolf under a new skin. And they're right.

You bet the NAI will include Mexico. The shills pushing the NAI will not admit this in public but it's in their messages.

Read this from msg from Embassy Ottawa (Wikileaks) dated Jan 28, 2005:

“Canadian economists in business, academia and government have given extensive thought to the possible
options for further North American integration. Nearly all of this work assumes that each of the three countries is
pursuing standard economic policy goals - growth, productivity and competitiveness (rather than more specific
concerns raised by MEXICAN ANALYSTS such as migration management, regional development, or environmental
protection).”

“Many Canadian economists point to labor markets - both within and among countries - as the
factor market where more liberalization would deliver the greatest economic benefits FOR ALL THREE COUNTRIES. They advocate freeing up professional licensing laws, and developing a quick, simple, low-cost work permit system, at least for U.S. and Canadian citizens.”

“It could also facilitate future steps TOWARDS TRILATERAL ECONOMIC INTEGRATION, such as a common external tariff or a customs union, if and when OUR THREE COUNTRIES chose to pursue them.”

Wake up people. Bush was working on the NAI/NAU and so is Obama. Obama is a NWO puppet.

Take a look at the US. A state is not a sovereign entitiy, there is a greater power over it that it must defer to: the Federal government. The Feds take precedence.

Once Canada & the US unite, the "Union" will take precedence over the individual member nations. Once the "Integration/Union" takes place, the Union can make the decision to include Mexico -- which if you bother to read the Ottawa msg, has been the aim all along.

Specifics, please.


As I posted before, either you have not read the articles on the links or did not understand them.

Here's a synopsis:

“This fits the recommendations of Canadian economists who have assessed the options for continental integration. While in principle many of them support more ambitious integration goals, like a customs union/single market and/or SINGLE CURRENCY, most believe the INCREMENTAL APPROACH is MOST APPROPRIATE at this time, and all agree that it helps pave the way to these goals if and when North Americans choose to pursue them.”

“Canadian economists in business, academia and government have given extensive thought to the possible
options for further North American integration. Nearly all of this work assumes that each of the three countries is
pursuing standard economic policy goals - growth, productivity and competitiveness (rather than more specific
concerns raised by MEXICAN ANALYSTS such as migration management, regional development, or environmental
protection).”

“At this time, an ‘INCREMENTAL’ approach to integration is probably better than a ‘big deal’ approach.”

“…so our governments may always want to keep some kind of land border in place….”

“…For small businesses, the complexities of navigating the border are apparently even more
intimidating than the actual costs. Reducing this risk is Canada's TOP MOTIVE for PURSUING FURTHER INTEGRATION.”

“Many Canadian economists point to labor markets - both within and among countries - as the
factor market where more liberalization would deliver the greatest economic benefits FOR ALL THREE COUNTRIES.
They advocate freeing up professional licensing laws, and developing a quick, simple, low-cost work permit
system, at least for U.S. and Canadian citizens.”

“…While much of the problem is domestic in nature, an INTERNATIONAL initiative could
help to catalyze change.”

“CURRENCY UNION: Canadian economists are split on whether a return to a fixed exchange rate, or adopting
the U.S. dollar, would benefit Canada in current circumstances. (Canada last tied its dollar to the
U.S. dollar from 1962 to 1970). The central bank governor has taken the position that ‘MONETARY UNION IS AN ISSUE THAT
SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ONCE WE HAVE MADE MORE PROGRESS TOWARDS ESTABLSIHING A SINGLE MARKET’”

“It could also facilitate future steps TOWARDS TRILATERAL ECONOMIC INTEGRATION, such as a common external tariff
or a customs union, if and when OUR THREE COUNTRIES chose to pursue them.”



“…some Canadian economists have suggested that NAFTA fell short of expectations with respect to
increasing consumer choice in Canada; that may be a THEME we should STRESS as EFFORTS to PROMOTE FURTHER INTEGRATION
take shape.”

“WHEN ADVOCATING NAI, it would be better to highlight specific gains to individual firms, industries or travelers, and
especially consumers.”

I can only assume that you don't understand the bigger picture because you clearly can't seem to comprehend it in your posts.

And so what if you were working on the ground level while I was in grade school? It doesn't mean you know what you're talking about. I'm just going to guess and say that you're probably Albertan, right? Because I've worked in Alberta before, right in the height of the oil boom, and I know how regular Albertans think when it comes to integration; they fully support it because it means they would be making more money from selling off their oil at prices that make no sense whatsoever (because without strategic planning or education, they only care about short-term profit that puts money in their pockets).

For instance, you do realize that under NAFTA, we cannot sell oil to the US at a higher price than what we sell in our own domestic market, right? What this means is that it is impossible for us to profit from selling oil to the US while they maintain a secure and cheap market. NAFTA also forces us to maintain a continuous supply of energy to the US; this includes supplying them with the same amount of oil that we've been supplying them with in the previous three months, even if we are suffering from a fuel crisis.

Oh, and there's the bitumen production from the tar sands. Do you know that we sell bitumen to the Americans at extremely low, unprofitable prices because they label it as "dirty oil" (so therefore not worth that much)? Then the Americans refine it and sell it back to us.

Please explain to me how we benefit from this. How does it make sense that we produce more oil than we ever need, yet we must import refined oil to support ourselves?


And what I am pointing out is that Canada is not separate from that. That's what you dont seem to understand. Canada's interests are inextricably linked to the US's, for better or worse. IT is only juvenile, short-sighted college revolutionaries who think they can bash 'all' americans while ignoring their own complacency.


"You're either with us or with the terrorists" -- George H. W. Bush


Again, do you REALLY think if America collapses it wont have negative effects on Canada? You claim to be well versed in these studies, and yet you seem to imply you think you live in a bubble.


Thanks to NAFTA, we have most of our economy integrated with the US. Obviously if the US collapses it will effect us, hence why the people pushing the agenda strive for more integration to secure the US.


Well, for like the 10th time, this isnt about a NAU. But AGAIN, it would benefit ALL of N. America. Your attempt to pretend you and your government are really that different from the states only shows how little you know about the subject. The similarities and common interests FAR outweigh the minor differences.


I am ashamed that people like you enjoy Canadian citizenship. Canada IS NOT THE FREAKING UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Get it through your head.


So, me being a dual citizen means I have a 'lack of education'? That's not a very well-thought-out argument.


Not even close. I assume you have a lack of education because you can't seem to grasp the reality of this situation. You would prefer to focus only on what you think will benefit you instead of even considering the bigger picture. Obviously more US-CAN integration will benefit you, but in case you have not noticed, most Canadians actually believe in this thing called "national identity" and resent American ideals and integration.


LOL. I've asked you TWICE to list some examples of how the information in the OP threatens canadains sovereignty and you havent even attempted to answer it.


I provided you with an official Canadian government document reciting the integration steps outlined by both Stephen Harper and Barak Obama. There aren't any better examples than that.


Clearly you know nothing about the specifics of the issue and are merely projecting your little liberal college Che Guevaraa complex on issues that in no way relate.


First of all, it's university. I take it you've never been there because if you did, you would know that college is where you go for job training and university is where you go to develop critical thinking skills beneficial to society.


As for it being 'your country', are of Native descent? If not, what makes it more 'your country', than mine? I'm a citizen. I pay taxes, I vote, I participate in civic duties. Perhaps we should both relocate to Europe? Hell, I have a feeling I've been a dual citizen longer than you've even been alive. Maybe you should get out of my continent


It's my country because I was born here and I actually make an effort to protect its integrity. You claim Canada is your land too? Considering you think Canada should become one with the US, I consider your claim as verging on treason.


Also, I'd LOVE for you to show this thread to your alleged professors.

Maybe even encourage them to chime in on this debate.


"Alleged professors"


These are the same conclusions that I come up with in their courses. These are the same conclusions found in all relevant learning material. These are the same conclusions that are confirmed when I watch the news.


Are they the ones who tell you that Canadians are like Zapatistas?


Man, your ignorance is astounding. You reek of a conservatist who believes that the system knows better than you do so you shouldn't even bother to think for yourself. You can call me a "liberal" all that you want, I'd rather be anything than you.

Specifics, please.


Here's more in condensed form:

The NAI is the NAU.

“It is interesting to note that the GAO report was made public just days before U.S. President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued the declaration, Beyond the Border: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness. The agreement will work towards establishing a North American security perimeter and will focus on easing travel and trade, increasing information sharing, as well as further integrating cross-border law enforcement operations.”


”While U.S. drones have also been deployed on the southern border, it recently came to light that in some cases they have been flying over Mexico as part of deepening security cooperation between the two countries.”


”The Operational Integration Center (OIC) on Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Michigan, officially opened on March 24, 2011. The facility, ‘will provide a centralized location for CBP, along with federal, state, local and international partners, to gather, analyze and disseminate operational and strategic data in the Great Lakes region of the Northern border.’ … This could be the first of many such facilities which will expand surveillance capabilities and further militarize the northern border.”


“… the overall objectives are to secure the external and internal borders of both countries. The plan is a continuation and expansion of the Security and Prosperity Partnership agenda. In a Fortress North America, the U.S. seeks to push out its security perimeter whereby the northern border would act as another layer of security. It would be open to trade, as well as trusted travellers and labour mobility. The move towards a North American security perimeter is nothing more than a pretext for U.S. control over the continent.”

“THE MOVE TOWARDS A NORTH AMERICAN SECURITY PERIMETER IS NOTHING MORE THAN A PRETEXT FOR U.S. CONTROL OVER THE CONTINENT.”

Source:
www.globalresearch.ca...


“Months before the Conservative government dismissed talk of a perimeter security accord with the United States as hearsay, senior officials were quietly DISCUSSING A DRAFT of the border agreement.”

“…Critics of the process voiced fresh concerns after reading the HEAVILY CENSORED documents, which were disclosed under the Access to Information Act.

‘It is not healthy for the democratic process for this to be happening behind closed doors, in secrecy,’ said Maude Barlow, national chairwoman of the Council of Canadians.”

“…Despite the advanced efforts, however, a spokesman for Prime Minister Stephen Harper waved off questions about an accord in December when word began to leak out.
‘No such announcement is planned,’ said Dimitri Soudas. ‘We don't comment on hearsay or speculation.’

“Less than two months later, Harper and U.S. President Barack Obama signed an agreement that could ultimately lead to a formal North American security perimeter.”

“Critics say the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS RISKING SOVEREIGNTY over key policies such as immigration as well as control of personal information about Canadians.

‘We've heard absolutely nothing about how the talks are going,’ said Barlow.”

“Governments have a duty to be up-front about such major initiatives, said NDP candidate Paul Dewar, the party's foreign affairs critic in the last Parliament. The Commons foreign affairs committee had no inkling of a brewing accord, Dewar said.

‘We were not told as parliamentarians," he said. "We were kept in the dark.’"
