Former President George W. Bush stressed the importance of immigration on Tuesday at a speech in Dallas, throwing himself back in the ring as the debate over reform heats up in Washington. “Immigrants come with new skills and new ideas. They fill a critical part in our labor market. They work hard for a better life,” Bush said at the event, hosted by the George W. Bush Institute and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. – Huffington Post
Dominant Social Theme: Immigrants reinvigorate our collective soul.
Free-Market Analysis: Okay, we made up the headline. George W. Bush has never publicly said that Canada, Mexico and the US should merge into one great big North American Union.
But in our view, he might as well have said it.
He spent a good bit of his second term sneaking around and holding confidential meetings with top leaders of Canada and Mexico. The security deals he made more closely combined civil and military policing, from what we can tell.
And today, of course, there is a “constitution free” zone between Canada and the US where authorities can act unimpeded by such pesky restraints as laws designed to protect people from unnecessary search and seizure.
Coincidence? Toward the end of his term, Bush made a desperate effort to further immigration reform in the US but was soundly rebuffed. What was not widely reported was that Bush’s public effort was merely the capstone of years of private efforts to apparently move the US, Canada and Mexico toward a closer “cooperation.”
And for those who still don’t believe that this is a deliberate and ongoing attempt to create a European-style union in the Americas, there is this report from 2007, courtesy of Webwire.com, excerpted as follows:
Los Angeles, CA (Oct. 10, 2007) – Speaking on the Larry King show, former Mexican President Vicente Fox confirmed every assertion made by Jerome Corsi in his new book, NY Times bestseller “The Late Great U.S.A.: The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada” (WND Books, ISBNs 0-9790451-4-2, $25.95, July 2007). Not only did Fox admit that he and George W. Bush have “agreed” to create a common currency, the Amero, he contended that a North American Union is “inevitable.” That’s something that Jerry Corsi takes issue with while applauding Fox’s openness on national television.
“At last we have public confirmation of the pernicious secret activity that’s been going on towards merging Mexico, Canada and the United States,” declares Corsi, whose book became a bestseller shortly after publication. “Personally, I’d like to thank Vincente Fox. His candor about this merger is what’s going to stop it dead in its tracks.”
Corsi continues, “Fox’s appearance with Larry King and, of all places, on The Daily Show constitutes the first time a leader of Mexico, Canada or the U.S. has openly confirmed a plan to create a regional currency called the Amero – a plan I document in detail in ‘The Late Great U.S.A.'” Fox went on to explain how current regional trade agreements between the United States and its hopelessly corrupt neighbor to the south are intended to evolve into other previously hidden aspects of North American integration.
As reported in WorldNetDaily, Larry King, near the end of the broadcast, asked Fox a question e-mailed from a listener: “I would like to know how you feel about the possibility of having a Latin America united with one currency.”
Fox answered in the affirmative, admitting he and George W. Bush had “agreed” to pursue the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas – a free-trade zone extending throughout the Western Hemisphere – and that part of the plan was to institute a regional currency from Canada to the tip of South America!
“Long term, very long term” he said. “What we proposed together, President Bush and myself, it’s ALCA, which is a trade union for all the Americas.”
According to Corsi, Fox has indeed performed a public service. “George W. Bush is president of the United States, not king. He has utterly no right to enter into any such agreement with a foreign country, particularly a hostile one.” During Fox’s tenure as Mexican president, millions of Mexicans entered the United States illegally. In Corsi’s view, this constitutes an invasion that has cost American taxpayers billions of dollars while destroying schools and bankrupting hospitals and municipal governments across the country…and is only a taste of what a merger would bring.
“Finally” says the author of “The Late Great U.S.A.,” “here is unequivocal proof, straight from the mouth of Mexico’s former president, that Bush’s goal is to erode United States sovereignty in order to create free movement for Mexico’s peasant class across our border, in the process flooding us with even more anchor babies and illiterates ready and willing to take advantage of our country’s all-too-generous welfare programs.”
To be clear, the above was from a press release about Jerome Corsi’s (then) new book, initiated by conservative website World Net Daily. But courageous reporting by Corsi and others stopped the move toward a NAU at the time.
Every day people pitched in, too. Citizens in Texas protested against the monster highway that was supposed to run to Canada, bisecting the US into two Balkanized nations.
And Bush himself slunk off into the arid, non-political evening after Obama‘s election with nary a peep. Like “gun control,” the meme of a “closer union” had become too public too quickly and the US electorate was overwhelmingly against it.
But now Obama has “won” a second term. (Of course, we don’t believe it for a minute. There was a reason electronic election machinery was installed over the past decade lacking paper trails. Who authorized them? No one seems to know.)
Here Obama goes … and here comes Bush suddenly making a reappearance.
Just coincidence, of course.
