North American Union



Regionalism is a strategy to cannibalize existing governing structures run by democratically elected representatives replacing them with appointed representatives empowered with cross jurisdictional boundary authority.  Clear as mud right?   The guide book, "How the EU Works" provides a description that may aid in understanding even if misleading: 

"The countries that make up the European Union remain independent sovereign nations but they pool their sovereignty in order to gain strength and world influence none of them could have on their own.  Pooling sovereignty means, in practice, that the "member states" delegate some of their decision-making powers to shared institutions that they have created so that decisions on specific matters of joint interest can be made democratically at the European level."  

"Pooling sovereignty" is an oxymoron.  When a country joins the European Union they give up their territorial decision making authority (sovereignty) - giving it to a delegate (representative) who is a single voting member of a much larger governing authority.  From the member states point of view, regionalism is a zero sum game.  The member state loses power to govern their state.  The European Parliament gains power over the member state.   Once the supra-governing structure is created, they continue to vote themselves more control over the member states - eventually leaving the member state government a mere shell (cannibalized) with no power to control anything. 

At any level that a governing body exists, regionalism can be used to destroy it.  And that's what's happening in the U.S.  Regionalism is being used as a strategy to destroy existing governing structures - replaced by unelected, undemocratic supra-governing bodies who take their direction from unseen, unknown forces. 

Regionalism is divide and conquer in a very real sense.   The methodology is to identify an area of responsibility of another governing body and propose that a collective approach be taken for the 'management' of that area of responsibility.  The earliest regional authorities I found were for transportation.  In fact, the federal government requires that a regional transportation authority be established when the population of a area reaches a specified number.  Once that authority is established, other regional authorities are proposed until the original governing bodies are just puppets putting on a show with no real authority over anything because they ceded their authority to the regional bodies - most times unseen and unknown to the people whose lives they affect. 

Border Region and Region Expansion

In 1981, Ronald Reagan established the U.S.-Mexico Binational Commission.  This commission led to the signing of the 1983 La Paz Agreement which created defined international region of that extended 100 kilometers on each side of the border. 

The agreement also specified Working Groups comprised of American and Mexican officials effectively created a supra-national government structure over the region.


The original stated purpose of the agreement was to cooperate with Mexico on cross-border environmental issues including clean-up. Sounds reasonable right?   The problem is that the regional authority given to the EPA and their Mexican counterpart, was written in such as way that they could expand their authority by mutual consent. They were also given the power to raise revenues for their activities outside the control of either the government of Mexico or the U.S.  In other words, they were given the power to accept private funds to operate and to expand their authority.   And they were given the power to invite other groups - national and international, government and NGO's to participate in the decision-making for the border region.


U.S. Mexican Border Region


Effectively, Ronald Reagan "pooled sovereignty" (ceded sovereign authority) over the U.S. side of the border region to an unelected, undemocratic authority.  By so doing, he created the cancerous seed organization of the North American Union that now threatens our national sovereignty.  The expansion of powers has been promoted and funded by David Rockefeller - his Foundations and front groups plus other corporate money. The private money and influence is injected into the process through 'Working Groups' (aka Public-Private Partnerships).

Regional Expansion
Through Regional Development

Executive Order 13122, signed by Bill Clinton on May 28, 1999 expanded the Border Region to be defined as 150 miles on each side of the border. 

U.S. Treasury - Press Release - April 15, 2002 (PO-2095)

Geographic Scope and Financial Differentiation: To expand the capacity of both institutions to address important binational environmental needs, the geographic scope for BECC/NADBank operations in Mexico will be expanded from 100 km to 300 km from the border. The geographic limit in the United States will remain unchanged at 100 km from the border.

To ensure that both institutions continue to focus on the priority environmental needs of the immediate border region, this geographic expansion will be coupled with a system of financial differentiation. Specifically, grant financing will be provided to the poorest communities located within the current border region of 100 km in both countries, and up to 25% of low interest rate lending may be made available for projects located between 100 km and 200 km in Mexico. Projects located between 200 km and 300 km in Mexico would be allowed to borrow at standard NADBank interest rates and receive normal technical assistance.

Gov. Perry Welcomes Chihuahua Gov. Reyes Baeza To 'Partnership for Progress' Agreement

“Today, we are strengthening our cooperative relationship by welcoming the state of Chihuahua into the Regional Partnership for Progress,” Perry said. “There is much that we must do as partners and neighbors and much that can be accomplished when we work together to promote our common interests in a spirit of cooperation.”

In June, Perry signed the same MOU with Gov. Tomas Yarrington of Tamaulipas, Gov. Enrique Martinez of Coahuila, and Gov. Natividad Gonzalez of Nuevo León. The agreement calls for an integrated approach to regional economic development, public safety, energy, telecommunications, health, infrastructure and education. Chihuahua delayed signing the MOU because the former governor’s term of office was about to end.

Perry said that the cooperative approach taken by the border governors is helping create greater opportunity and improve the quality of life for citizens on both sides of the border.

“Together, we have worked to tear down barriers to trade and economic progress. Today, there are 12 separate industries in Texas that export more than $1 billion in goods and products to Mexico each year and our exports to Mexico were up 22 percent during the first quarter of 2004,” Perry added. “And increased trade with Texas is benefiting workers on the southern side of the border too, with more than half of the new jobs created in Mexico linked to the export industry.”

North America's Supercorridor Coalition

The list of accomplishments on the NASCO website clearly shows the part that private sector groups play in pushing the agenda.  They bring with them lobbying money from big donors to buy the votes of Congress.  Money for projects always buys the attention of departments in government.  What the NASCO MOU's show is how the integration of the NAU governments is being bought by the private sector groups.  They write legislation favorable to the agenda of their benefactors and get it put into law.   This really is the communist system of government.  A minority of elites driving the agenda for their own personal benefit while putting up the pretense that it serves the 'commons'.   In this regard, fascism is communism is socialism which is institutionalized fraud.
