Purple sarcasm by Angie (that be me)
WASHINGTON — A largely unreported meeting held at the State Department discussed integration of the U.S., Mexico and Canada in concert with a move toward a transatlantic union, linking a North American community with the European Union.
Yup, gotta keep things as quite as possible, we sheep must not know things, we might bah..bah…bah…
The meeting was held Monday under the auspices of the Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy, or ACIEP. WND obtained press credentials and attended as an observer. The meeting was held under “Chatham House” rules that prohibit reporters from attributing specific comments to individual participants.
Well, of coure, can’t actually let us sheep know who said what!
The State Department website noted the meeting was opened by Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Business Affairs Daniel S. Sullivan and ACIEP Chairman Michael Gadbaw, vice president and senior counsel for General Electric’s International Law & Policy group since December 1990.
WND observed about 25 ACIEP members, including U.S. corporations involved in international trade, prominent U.S. business trade groups, law firms involved with international business law, international investment firms and other international trade consultants.
No members of Congress attended the meeting.
Did we expect them too? My goodness they have so much more important things to do than see about our countrys welfare! This is the lamest Congress I have seen in my lifetime!
The agenda for the ACIEP meeting was not published, and State Department officials in attendance could not give WND permission under Chatham House rules to publish the agenda.
Better not publish your agenda, we sheep that you are leading to slaughter with your agenda just might get riled up!
The meeting agenda included topics reviewing the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, or SPP, and the U.S.-EU Transatlantic Economic Council, or TEC.
Security? Prosperity? You talking about our border security? talking about the dollar falling? Or just our Economy in general? Oh, you must be talking about Prosperity for you, The special ones that can just change at your will our Country and make sure YOU have prosperity! It doesnt take a Rocket Scientist here to see that you are up to no good and I for one do not trust you at all!!!
The SPP, declared by the U.S., Canada and Mexico at a summit meeting in 2005, has 20 trilateral bureaucratic working groups that seek to “integrate and harmonize” administrative rules and regulations on a continental basis.
Yeah, let’s all integrate and harmonize and while you are going about taking care of our business, let’s just take away THE USA Sovereinty, can’t wait to sing Kumbaya!
Several participants said the premise of the SPP is to create a North American business platform to benefit North America-based multi-national companies the way the European Union benefits its own.
Oh yes, the E.U. is an excellent Model of Perfection! Business as usual!
Others noted the premise of the TEC is to create a convergence of administrative rules and regulations between Europe and North America, anticipating the creation of a “Transatlantic Economic Union” between the European Union and North America.
Shall we adopt their way of life too?
Participants pointed out that transatlantic trade is currently 40 percent of all world trade. They argue that trade and non-trade barriers need to be further reduced to maintain that market share as a framework is put in place to advance transatlantic economic integration.
Further reduced? You must jest! We, the People do see your greed ! Of course we can always follow the money, isnt that what they say? Follow the money Follow the money!
Still, some participants argued that many corporations in North America already have moved beyond a North American focus to adopt a global perspective that transcends even the Transatlantic market.
Yes, Global, let’s just get this ball rolling to faster satisfy our need for One World Government..Let’s see, who shall we elect to run this great Global empire? Oh, will we have elections or will you guys just appoint?
“Supply chains and markets are everywhere,” one participant asserted. “What’s to stop global corporations from going after the cheapest labor available globally, wherever they can find it, provided the cost of transporting goods globally can be managed economically?”
Well Slap my face, we only need 2 classes of people here….The have’s and the Have Not’s. We need to pay oh let’s see, does 50 cents an hour about cut it?
Other participants argued regional alliances were still important, if only to put in place the institutional bases that ultimately would lead to global governance on uniform global administrative regulations favorable to multi-national corporations.
That’s what I said, Bunny Bread!
“North America should be a premiere platform to establish continental institutions,” a participant said. “That’s why we need to move the security perimeters to include the whole continent, especially as we open the borders between North American countries for expanding free trade.”
How much of this do you think we do not understand? That is what we have been saying, You don’t want our borders secure..You want to move between them freely, let’s not make it inconvenient…Let’s use the guise to fool the people into thinking you are thinking of the poor crossing our borders for a better life..What hogwash, we are not all so gullible that we cannot read between your lies and false compassion! Your only compassion is for the almighty dollar and Power to yourselves! Cheap labor, easy access to and fro… What a ruse!
One presentation on the agenda identified four reasons why administrative rules and regulations need to be integrated by SPP in North America and by the Transatlantic Economic Council, bridging together European Union and North American markets:
WND also reported the Transatlantic Policy Network, a non-governmental organization headquartered in Washington and Brussels and advised by a bi-partisan congressional policy group chaired by Sen. Robert Bennett, R-Utah, has called for the creation of a Transatlantic Common Market between the U.S. and the European Union by 2015.A complete membership list of the current 60-person Advisory Committee on International Policy is published on the State Department website.ACIEP members include corporate officers from General Electric, Exxon Mobil, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Archer Daniels Midland, United Parcel Service, Citibank, Proctor & Gamble, Hunt Oil, CMS Energy, Boeing, 3M, Goldman Sachs and Cargill.
Understand that I understand we need and am for business to provide jobs, make a profit etc: I am not against business. Heck I am a believer in our system. What I AM against is losing our Soverignty and Open Borders and Secret meetings to decide for us which way the wind blows on our policies!
On another note I found this: It’s always for the greater good is it not? I got a headache and going to lay down..But I will be back just like the terminator Arnie…:)
When the vote is for socialism in 2008. Hillary and Obama can’t wait to turn your kid into a good citizen in service to the greater good. And you? You will be sent to re-education camp, because, Obama warned us – can’t say he didn’t issue a harbinger of what is to come – you will have no choice. And that is more chump change from the would be Messiah.
Mr. Obama argues that the right of parents to be involved in the lives of their minor children is limited by the government’s determination whether the children are either fearful or are convinced the notification of an event will disappoint parents. He goes on to argue that parents need only be involved in their children’s lives when they can “be open with us and loving toward us, and we toward them.” He is argues that, since the “Big Brother Federal Government” cannot force openness and lovingness, the familial bond need not be honored at all.
The logical extension of Mr. Obama’s argument is that the parent-child relationship is not a natural right, but a privilege granted by the government. Anytime the government deems some aspect of that relationship – no matter how inconsequential – to be unacceptable, it may be severed by the state.
