The global government-promoting Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) published a new report this month demanding further integration of North America, calling for deeper “cooperation” on everything from energy, law enforcement, and healthcare to labor regulations, trade, and education. With the globalist architects well aware of how unpopular their sought-after “North American Union” scheme remains among the public, the CFR appears to have toned down some of its extreme anti-sovereignty rhetoric. Instead, the new report emphasizes what the outfit called a “new focus” on North America dealing primarily with energy, “community,” and “security.” The scheme, however, remains just as radical.
“In sum, we recommend a new partnership for North America, a new model for the world of integration and cooperation among sovereign states,” the report claims, paying phony lip service to national sovereignty even while openly advocating its surreptitious surrender to unaccountable transnational institutions. “The foundation for U.S. foreign policy in years to come should be ‘Made in North America.’” It adds: “Now is the moment for the United States to break free from old foreign policy biases to recognize that a stronger, more dynamic, resilient continental base will increase U.S. power globally.”
The controversial 137-page CFR report, dubbed North America: Time for a New Focus, was produced by a self-styled “Independent Task Force” chaired by retired U.S. Gen. David Petraeus and former World Bank boss Robert Zoellick, now a bigwig at Goldman Sachs. The two globalists are longtime veterans of the CFR and the even more shadowy Bilderberg summits, which every year bring together some of the leading extremists from around the world in the push for what they call “global governance.”
This summer, Petraeus, who resigned in disgrace from the CIA “killing machine” amid the exposure of an extramarital affair, came under fire for declaring publicly that, “after America, comes North America.” The CFR task force was directed by Shannon K. O’Neil, who serves as a senior fellow in the CFR’s “Latin American Studies” division, which is run by a brazen Castro apologist described by a senior U.S. intelligence officer dealing with Cuba as an “agent of influence” in the United States for the barbaric regime in Havana.
The late Professor Robert Pastor, a CFR operative often described as the “Father of the North American Union,” also served as a member of the task force promoting a continental regime to usurp the sovereignty of Americans, Canadians, and Mexicans. Before he died, Pastor credited The John Birch Society, an affiliate of this magazine, for having killed his radical dream of a European Union-style Leviathan to rule over North America. However, as evidenced by the latest CFR demands on “integration,” the plot to impose a regional super-state on the North American continent is far from dead.
The dubious CFR task force, which appears to have been tasked with formulating politically palatable schemes to assault national sovereignty on the continent, placed special emphasis on energy. Claiming that “North America” could eventually prove to be self-sufficient when it comes to production, the report argued that “continental energy and environmental policies are not keeping up.” Of course, the overwhelming majority of Americans have no idea that there are even “continental energy and environmental policies” — much less whom or what formulates them. But those schemes are expanding nevertheless, though apparently not quickly enough for CFR globalists.
“The North American countries need a regional energy strategy,” the report continues without explicitly acknowledging that “regional” policies require “regional” governance beyond the accountability of domestic voters or constitutions. “The Task Force recommends specific steps to strengthen the continental energy infrastructure (including approval of the Keystone XL pipeline), expand energy exports, support Mexico’s historic reforms, secure safety and encourage harmonized policies to promote energy conservation and lessen carbon costs.”
So-called “harmonized” policies means that government regulations and laws should be the same in each country. Across the European Union, for instance, the overwhelming majority of laws and regulations now originate in Brussels, where voters have virtually no say and out-of-control bureaucrats dictate policy to formerly independent governments. And of course, no globalist report would be complete without demonizing CO2 — exhaled by humans, required for plants, and referred to by scientists as “the gas of life.” So-called “carbon costs” are a manufactured cost, underpinned by discredited theories on “global warming,” aimed at regulating and taxing virtually every human activity while centralizing coercive power at the international level.
Beyond energy, the CFR report shows clearly that the globalists have big plans for their sought-after North American regime. Under the guise of “fostering” what the task force calls a “North American community,” the CFR demanded “comprehensive immigration reform, workforce development, and the creation of a mobility accord to facilitate the movement of workers.” The report also demands that the U.S. Congress pass “comprehensive immigration reforms” — also known as amnesty for illegal immigrants; or as the task force put it, “a pathway to legalization for undocumented immigrants now in the United States.”
