We were talking about this a month ago, and come to find out, so was Lou Dobbs:
Perhaps the most blistering criticism has come from Lou Dobbs of CNN – a frequent critic of Bush's immigration policies.
"A regional prosperity and security program?" he asked rhetorically in a recent cablecast. "This is absolute ignorance. And the fact that we are -- we reported this, we should point out, when it was signed. But, as we watch this thing progress, these working groups are continuing. They're intensifying. What in the world are these people thinking about? You know, I was asked the other day about whether or not I really thought the American people had the stomach to stand up and stop this nonsense, this direction from a group of elites, an absolute contravention of our law, of our Constitution, every national value. And I hope, I pray that I'm right when I said yes. But this is -- I mean, this is beyond belief."
Here is the last comment from our discussion re SPP . Since I am still trying to figure out 'who's on first' and 'what's on second', I'll let our reader llih sum things up for us (AGAIN -- thank you llih!)
"As a note I believe Lou Dobbs has had 2 segments on the SPP. One last year and one today. I didn't see todays, but read about it. An author named Jerome Corsi filled a FOIA request for all information regarding the SPP a couple of days ago. This agreement is flying under the radar. Most Americans don't know anything about it. MSM is not reporting about it. Congress has no oversight capability over it (as if they would exercise it anyway). If one starts reading about NAFTA, the FTAA, the Council on Foreign Relations and the SPP a clear picture starts to form on where these elitists want to take the country. I don't believe it's a plan most Americans would agree too. National sovereignty, the Constitution, labor and environmental protections would be gone. The SPP would expand the NAFTA tribunals into a North American Union court system that would have supremacy over all U.S. law, even over the U.S. Supreme Court."
Also of interest in the WND article was Rep. Tancredo's concern over this:
Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo. and the chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus as well as author of the new book, "In Mortal Danger," may be the only elected official to challenge openly the plans for the new superstate. Tancredo wants to know the membership of the Security and Prosperity Partnership groups along with their various trilateral memoranda of understanding and other agreements reached with counterparts in Mexico and Canada.
HE WANTS TO KNOW THE MEMBERSHIP?!?!?!?!? WTF am I missing here?
We had this list of "participants" in our discussion -- It's on page 7 of the pdf. I assume participant also means member?? or am I just too stupid to live?
Maybe I should send him these links also:
And my favorite
And one more thing --Here's the latest on the package of illegal immigration bills voted on in Tancredo's home state yesterday:
This is where I get confused. Is this SPP, NAFTA, NACC a dem or repub issue? Are the illegal immigration bills a dem or repub backed issue?
I hope llih comes back to comment cause 'I don't know' is still on third!
