Calling the shots on the EU & NAFTA.ITEM: The June 18 Associated Press reported." "European Union leaders agreed Friday on the first constitution for the reunited continent, overcoming disputes about power-sharing, national sovereignty and even whether God deserved a mention, officials said." AP added, "The constitution aims to streamline the EU's complex institutions and boost its image on the world stage by creating an EU foreign minister: Fearing gridlock in the expanded club, the document also aims to curb areas where individual countries can veto decisions."
AHEAD OF THE CURVE: Many Europeans are now awakening to the designs of their leaders, realizing that the "Common Market" agreement sold to them years ago is now metastasizing into a full-blown, socialist regional government.
In our April 10, 1989 article entitled "United States of Europe The United States of Europe (sometimes abbreviated U.S.E. or USE) is a name given to several similar speculative scenarios of the unification of Europe, as a single nation and a single federation of states, similar to the United States of America, both as projected by ," we noted that "the first concrete step forward in the plan for abolition of the European nation-states came in 1951 with the signing of the treaty creating the European Coal and Steel Community European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), 1st treaty organization of what has become the European Union; established by the Treaty of Paris (1952). It is also known as the Schuman Plan, after the French foreign minister, Robert Schuman, who proposed it in 1950. (ECSC ECSC: see European Coal and Steel Community. )," which was authored by the "Father of Europe," Jean Monnet. The ECSC became the even more powerful European Community (EC)--which, we observed, "was clearly designed to lead nations into a suicidal merger."
We then forewarned of the EC's intention to admit former satellite nations of the Soviet Union (Hungary, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, etc.) into the agreement. The EC has now been transformed into the European Union, with 25 members states, a parliament, a central batik batik (bətēk`), method of decorating fabrics practiced for centuries by the natives of Indonesia. It consists of applying a design to the surface of the cloth by using melted wax. , and a court.
In our May 7, 1991 follow-up, "A European Suprastate," we noted that "what we are looking at in the EC is a miniature new world order, which economically and politically is planned to be very much in the Soviet mold." This is indeed happening right before our eyes.
ITEM: "After the highest court in Massachusetts ruled against a Canadian real estate company and after the United States Supreme Court United States Supreme Court: see Supreme Court, United States. declined to hear its appeal, the company's day in court was over. Or so thought Chief Justice Margaret H. Marshall Margaret Hilary Marshall (born September 1, 1944) is an American lawyer and jurist who has been Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court since 1999. Early life
Marshall was born in Newcastle, South Africa, the daughter of a steel executive. of the Massachusetts court, until she learned of yet another layer of judicial review, by an international tribunal." So reported an April 18 New York Times article tellingly headlined "NAFTA NAFTA
in full North American Free Trade Agreement
Trade pact signed by Canada, the U.S., and Mexico in 1992, which took effect in 1994. Inspired by the success of the European Community in reducing trade barriers among its members, NAFTA created the world's Tribunals Stir U.S. Worries."
The Times interviewed Abner Mikva, a former chief judge of the federal appeals court in Washington and a former congressman, concerning another case in Mississippi. Mikva is "one of the three NAFTA judges considering the Mississippi case." "He declined to discuss it," stated the Times "but did offer his perspective on Chapter 11 [of the NAFTA agreement]. 'If Congress had known that there was anything like this in NAFTA,' [Mikva] said, 'they' would never have voted for it.'"
"There are grave implications here," Chief Justice Ronald M. George Ronald Marc George (born March 11, 1940) is the current and 27th Chief Justice of California, where he heads the Supreme Court of California. He was appointed to his current position by Governor Pete Wilson in May 1996. He has an B.A. from Princeton University, a J.D. of the California Supreme Court told the Times. "It's rather shocking that the highest courts of the state and federal governments could have their judgments circumvented by these tribunals."
The Times, with uncharacteristic frankness, added: "The availability of this additional layer of review, above even the United States Supreme Court, is a significant development ... [in that] the tribunals have the potential to upset the settled American constitutional order."

It features interviews with accompanying photo-shoots. screen," Peter Spiro, a law professor at Hofstra University, nonchalantly told the Times. "But it points to a fundamental reorientation of our constitutional system. You have an international tribunal essentially reviewing American court judgments."
AHEAD OF THE CURVE: Unlike the "All-the-News-that-Fits" major media, not only did we at THE NEW AMERICAN and the John Birch Society John Birch Society, ultraconservative, anti-Communist organization in the United States. It was founded in Dec., 1958, by manufacturer Robert Welch and named after John Birch, an American intelligence officer killed by Communists in China (Aug., 1945). know about this stealth bomber against national independence flying "under the radar screen," we were sounding the alarm about what it would do to our country.
As far back as our August 13, 1991 issue, we warned: "George Bush [the elder] has no more intention [of establishing free trade] than his Trilateral allies in Europe.... But free trade rhetoric is the perfect cover. What George Bush really intends to do is to first consolidate the northern portion of the western hemisphere, then add the southern...." Subsequently, in article after article in 1992 we exposed NAFTA's "free trade" Trojan horse nature.
In our September 21, 1992 issue, we again warned, "Nowhere, sad to say, do any of the mass media's experts even hint that NAFFA NAFFA North American Fantasy Football Association
NAFFA Nonappropriated Fund Financial Analysts (Analysis) amounts to another step toward George Bush's 'new world order.' The chief principle being ignored here is that economic union precedes political union. And the treaty is a giant step toward an economic union of all North America. The North American Free Trade Agreement North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), accord establishing a free-trade zone in North America; it was signed in 1992 by Canada, Mexico, and the United States and took effect on Jan. 1, 1994. in reality has little to do with free trade and a great deal to do with economic consolidation and eventual political union."
More than a decade before the Times admitted the truth, we warned that NAFTA would not only have "the potential to upset the settled American constitutional order," but would begin overriding our nation's Constitution. Hemispheric political union is exactly what the United States would be absorbed into if the FTAA FTAA Free Trade Area of the Americas
