Take action now:

Barack Obama promises "security and prosperity in North America" (work with Mexico, immigration "reform")

Yet another laundry list of promises is available in the article "I will repair our relationship with Mexico" (link), supposedly written by Barack Obama himself. It contains two phrases with "prosperity" and "security" together in relation to North America and even the use of "partnership" at the end. Those three words are also in the name of a government effort called the Security and Prosperity Partnership (spp.gov), something that may be a precursor to a North American Union. Given the use of those terms - and the fact that he mentions SPP meetings - that probably wasn't accidental and he may be dog whistling to those in the loop. (He's not alone in using those words: Fred Thompson's slogan was "Security, Unity, Prosperity".)
Under George W. Bush, the United States has not lived up to its historic role as a leader in the Western Hemisphere. As president, I will restore that leadership by working to advance the common prosperity and security of all of the people of the Americas. That work must begin with a renewed strategic partnership with Mexico.

...Mexico's President Felipe Calderon just traveled across the United States but didn't even go to Washington, which isn't that surprising given how little Mr. Bush has done to improve relations.
Calderon did meet with an Obama co-chair, and he may have avoided Washington because he needed the time to visit their outposts, or national politicians realized how damaging it would be to be seen with him, or he didn't want to be too obvious. And, of course, Obama is being unkind: Bush has done his best to reach out to Mexico, even going as far as making a pledge to the Mexican government.

Then, it's on to the part explicitly about the SPP meetings:
Starting my first year in office, I will convene annual meetings with Mr. Calderon and the prime minister of Canada. Unlike similar summits under President Bush, these will be conducted with a level of transparency that represents the close ties among our three countries. We will seek the active and open involvement of citizens, labor, the private sector and non-governmental organizations in setting the agenda and making progress.
Those NGOs would probably include unsavory groups which Obama has outreached to, and whether the institutional forces that favor the SPP would allow him any form of actual transparency is doubtful. I think we can put that down as "far-left groups + citizen useful idiots who'll be used for show."

Then, he (surprise!) promotes "comprehensive immigration reform", i.e., amnesty as well as anti-drug trafficking measures. And:
It's also time to develop a bilateral strategy for lifting up our border communities. Six and a half million Americans live in cities and towns next to the border, and 61 million Americans live in the four states that border Mexico. Too often we neglect the unique needs of these communities, which are integrated with their sister cities across the border. As president, I will work with state and local governments to enhance cross-border partnerships in transportation, law enforcement, environmental protection, health care and water usage.
Some cities like El Paso and smaller towns are somewhat integrated with their neighbors, but perhaps we should remind Obama that there's a border there, and those cities and towns are part of the U.S. not Mexico. I don't think that's as strong a distinction for him as it should be and as it is for the vast majority of Americans.

Then, he wants to "amend" - not repeal or sharply overhaul - NAFTA. This is the standard Democratic line of fluffing the pillows of those affected by that deal. And, he wants to send unspecified money to Mexico, pretending that that will somehow reduce illegal immigration.

Then, it's on to the "We Can Stop The Hate"-style part:
Finally, we have to recognize the connection between our rhetoric and our relations – both with Mexico and within our own borders. We can and should have a robust debate about immigration reform, but we should never demonize or scapegoat any ethnic group. Already, we have seen an unacceptable spike in hate crimes aimed at Latinos across America. This has proven divisive here at home, and it risks poisoning our relations with Latin America.
Obama has no interest in a "robust" debate, he simply wants to shut the voices of millions out of the debate by calling them names and smearing them as "scapegoaters".

Then, he uses all three SPP words in the same paragraph. I wonder who he's trying to send a message to:
Our relationship with Mexico should serve as a bridge to greater security and prosperity in North America and to better relations with Latin America. But we cannot achieve this partnership unless we engage in sustained and focused diplomacy, and develop a more effective working relationship with our neighbor to the south.

"We will seek the active and open involvement of citizens, labor, the private sector and non-governmental organizations in setting the agenda and making progress." Want involvement? It is only for the PEOPLE of the United States to be involved, to have any voice, any say so in such an agenda. Not NGO's, unions or corporate interests. Put the NAU to a vote by the American People. What will be the response if 99 percent of population says NO? What if our agenda is no NAU, not ever? What if we demand all progress cease immediately? Will our input be respected? "As president, I will restore that leadership by working to advance the common prosperity and security of all of the people of the Americas." Excuse me, but that is not within your authority. In case any of our candidates were asleep during that class in elementary school, working for the people or interests of other nations is known as treason. Besides, Canada's PM and Mexico's President might take issue with your interfering with their authority over their respective nations. More, the Constitution clearly demands that America be more than a 'concerned party' to your schemes. It demands that the American People be your ONLY concern. I hope all our presidential candidates will take note that dissolution of the United States of America is not one of the enumerated powers of the President. Or Congress. Dang that pesky goddam piece of paper. Always spoiling the plans of tyrants.

Everyone's been waiting for details from Obama and they are astoundingly anti-democratic. Wow, what an improvement from corporate SPP! His 'SPP+' will unite corporate 'stakeholders' with other special interest groups, all with an interest in open border but with one glaring omission--YOUR constitutional representatives, you know, Congress, who have never authorized or funded SPP. Oh, and forget that 2/3 Senate vote requirement, this isn't a treaty, just a 'partnership'. In this case, the Obama slogan might as well be 'non-change from Bush corporations can still believe in'.

I keep asking myself who is more delusional BombIran McCain or Obama. Who is Obama kidding. "CIR" is dead, dead, dead. It will be even more dead if Huckaberry Graham losing in the Carolina primary. That will send a huge message to Open Borders Republicans. If Obama is actually insane enough to run on a pro-Amnesty, "CIR" agenda this fall, every purple district House Democrat will flee to the protection of the SAVE act. My God, it even possible for the Democrats come close to loosing the House over "CIR" If McCain remains the nominee yet looses the election because polls show the Republican base failed to turn out, you dam well know that the Republican pary will have gotten the message on Immigration. In the 2010 midterms, there is no way that Immigration will not be the front and center issue. Especially if Obama is crazy enought to piss away his mandate on "CIR" like Pelosi and Reid did.

Loses not looses, among other mistakes You see what happens when you forget to clean the litter box twice a day and your high maintenance cat insists you do your duty less it threatens to crap on the laundry room floor. You end up posting at 4 O'clock in the morning till you fall back to sleep.

The more the professional corporate foundation funded Open Borders lobby pushes this "Stop the Hate" Marcusian Marxist propaganda against rule of law restrictionists of all racial and political stripes, the greater the likelihood that the radicalized MEChA and ANSWER loons will lose all perspective. They will feel entitled to act out against any individual, group or authority that does not support their radical "Open Borders", Reconquista, or Marxist/Anarchist agenda. Just as in the late 1960s the SDS splittered off into the radical Weathermen and Black Panthers then the terrorist Weather Undergroud, the increasingly extreme and anti-democratic rhetoric of the Open Borders movement could very well lead to a similiar turn of events. There is already a major connection between the extreme end of the Open Borders movement and organized crime and gangs. Like I have been saying the Democratic August convention in Denver could end up being very interesting in deed.

To all you guys who still don't get what is happening to you the system is about to remove you from your job and your home and your country, but once more this is not a country its a business deal.

Howdy, Fred. Mostly agree, but I'm still stuck on that notion that the People are in charge of hiring and firing around these parts. Maybe the boss has been away on vacation. But there will be hell to pay when he returns and finds the employees have broken into the amnesty/NAU liquor cabinet again and are busy xeroxing their butts instead of doing their jobs. llamajockey, you may be right. There's a long hot summer ahead of us. Think the jihadists of the OBL will be capable of holding off imploding themselves even before the August convention arrives?

NGOs -translation government funded foundations & untaxed entities. We need tax reform, I say tax NGOs and all charities and foundations-exactly the same as any other enterprise. It'll be funny when Barak orders a draft.

Edward the boss is not on any kind of vacation the fact is what is really precious to the so called average American is not freedom or rights or anything to do with race or for that fact Honro or the future of his or her kids, but his or her pay check is above all other things of nation and freedom. the average joe cares nothing about the other guy he may complain when the system began's busing his kids to some third world school. The fact is most want that new car or that new home and will do anything to get that thing he or she wants. and if that person is not attacked in front of his family he will be a good little bitch for the system. the so called American he or she will say nothing about the borders or the third world take over of his or her system of government. and people will never complain about the rape of a nation as long as it is not in the face of that person, sad fact is most will be raped when the system comes apart and the third world monkey take your life your home and on one will say a thing, buy guns.
