NAFTA Superhighway: Mythical says Nation writer

Christopher Hayes, writer for The Nation magazine, said on C-Span, the NAFTA Superhighway is "mythical."

"it doesn't exist," Hayes said. It's a fear in terms of American sovereignty... not well grounded in reality...


The Nation


Grassroots movement exposes elite conspiracy and forces politicians to respond: It would be a heartening story but for one small detail.

There's no such thing as a proposed NAFTA Superhighway.

Though opposition to the nonexistent highway is the cause célèbre of many a paranoiac, the myth upon which it rests was not fabricated out of whole cloth. Rather, it has been sewn together from scraps of fact...

Say what, Christopher Hayes... the NAFTA Superhighway doesn't exist? Hmmm... not yet, Mr. Hayes, but it is coming... and with it the end of U.S. sovereignty since the NAFTA Superhighway is part of the larger concept to eliminate borders between three separate countries.

Read your history, sir.

Hayes also said there is no political push for a North American Union... say what again! That's exactly the push to first eliminate borders between the United States, Mexico and Canada, there is a political push to equalize trade, laws, etc.

Hayes also said the mainstream media hasn't covered this... but the mythological NAFTA Superhighway is all over the Internet...

Exactly... the mainstream media hasn't covered the situation so it is left to sites such as ours and real news gatherers like Newsmax and World Net Daily to expose the news the mainstream media won't...

The man keeps digging himself in deeper.

He says there is no "evidence" the Texas road - massive scale - is going to continue across the United States...

Host asks him specifically, is there any evidence in other single states of movement on connecting the road...

Hayes, there are rumblings, he says, but nothing being built...

Is the man daffy? So because dirt isn't being moved right this instant, there's no evidence???

Don't miss the rebuttal by Gerome Corsi at World Net Daily


The Nation cover story denies Superhighway

In a cover story for the current Nation magazine, Christopher Hayes is the latest to join a growing list of those who deny a NAFTA Superhighway exists.

"There is no such thing as a proposed NAFTA Superhighway," Hayes declares.

The remainder of the article, however, shows how the Trans Texas Corridor under construction parallel to Interstate 35 is specifically designed to accommodate the steadily growing volume of NAFTA and World Trade Organization traffic pouring into Texas from China and the Far East through Mexican ports on the Pacific such as Manzanillo and Lázaro Cárdenas.

Like Hayes, the the Dallas-based trade group North America's SuperCorridor Coalition, Inc., or NASCO, adamantly denies the superhighway.


NAFTA Superhighway deniers ignore evidence

An extensive search of the available literature and archived websites establishes that either a fundamental incompetence or a basic political dishonesty drives those deniers who want to squash any public discussion of "NAFTA Superhighways."

Directly stated, NAFTA Superhighway deniers either negligently overlook a large body of specific references by transportation economists, transportation trade associations and numerous government reports, or they intentionally disregard these references to make a political point.

In 1998, transportation economist John P. McCray published an important paper entitled, "North American Free Trade Agreement Truck Highway Corridors: U.S.-Mexican Truck Rivers of Trade" in the Transportation Research Record.

NAFTA superhighway extends north
Plan under way in Texas will extend to Oklahoma, Colorado

A NAFTA superhighway plan under way in Texas will be extended to Oklahoma and Colorado, stretching the four-lane, train-truck-car-pipeline corridor from the Mexican border at Laredo, Texas, to Denver, reports WND columnist Jerome Corsi, whose new investigative book, "The Late Great USA: The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada," has just been released.

As WND has reported, the Federal Highway Administration is promoting public-private partnership projects to expand superhighway projects, consistent with extending the Trans-Texas Corridor network north.

The plan is for the states of Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado to apply the TTC toll road concept first developed by the Texas DOT to largely rural areas along the Ports-to-Plains Corridor.

To advance this plan, the Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor Coalition – sponsored by the consulates of Mexico and Canada along with the Texas and Colorado transportation departments – is co-sponsoring a "Great Plains 2007" international conference Sept. 19-21 at the Adam's Mark Hotel in Denver.

NAU deniers: Ignorant, or deceitful?

There is a difference between stupid and ignorant. The talking heads at Fox News are not stupid. But the three guests on Brit Hume's Tuesday night telecast who snickered at the "conspiracy nuts" who are concerned about the emergence of a North American Union are either ignorant, or deceitful. Here's the question: Is the NAU fact, or fiction?

Ridicule is a time-proven way to discredit opponents and redirect attention away from the issue at hand. Consider how President Bush avoided answering a direct question during a press conference in Canada Tuesday. When asked, "Can you say today that this is not a prelude to a North American Union?" Bush didn't say yes or no; he hemmed and hawed and told reporters: "I'm amused by the difference between what actually takes place in the meetings and by what some are trying to say takes place."

Were the meetings not held in secret and were the press allowed to observe and report, the president would certainly not be amused. Through a Freedom of Information Act request, Judicial Watch secured documents from a previous meeting of the Security and Prosperity Partners, and learned that in secret, the participants discussed "... evolution by stealth," referring to the advancement of the SPP. But the president insisted that references to a North American Union were nothing but "political scare tactics."

The president is not ignorant about what the SPP is doing; he and the other heads of state, the prime minister of Canada and Mexico's president, are the current contractors charged with building the NAU. The chief architect is one Robert Pastor and the Council on Foreign Relations Task Force.
