Black Helicopters Over The Idaho Statehouse

It looks like the forces of the New World Order were thwarted yesterday from carrying out their evil plan to hand over our sovereignty to the United Nations by the brave action of the Idaho House. {/sarcasm} From this article in the Idaho Statesman:
The Idaho House passed a memorial this morning asking Idaho's congressional delegation to oppose a proposed highway from Mexico to Canada.
Lawmakers said they fear the superhighway could threaten national security and border security, and hand import and export business from American ports to Mexico.
Plus, the agreements between U.S. agencies and foreign governments have the powers of a treaty but were never presented to the U.S. Congress, some said.
"It appears to me to be an end-run around the Constitution," Athol GOP Rep. Phil Hart said.
For those readers who haven't heard of the "proposed highway", it's a big deal over on the "black helicopter" side of the 'net, as part of the "North American Union" being created from the framework of the "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America". You can Google either linked term to get more "information" on the extent of the conspiracy; it's basically an opportunity for a "perfect storm" of crackpots from both sides of the political spectrum to join together -- be they anti-immigration and anti-UN types from the right, or "Bush will do anything that is evil" moonbats from the left. (Both groups seem to be represented by Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who's both a "Bush probably did 9/11" and "the UN wants to take your guns" guy.) I think the only reason this conspiracy theory hasn't gotten as much traction as it probably should is that the underlying assumptions (President Bush wants to turn over American sovereignty to an international organization, for one) are so hopelessly foolish that even the most jaded newsperson can't bring themselves to keep a straight face when mentioning it. Of course, that doesn't keep the Idaho House of Representatives from buying into it.

Here's what's really happening. The Council of Foreign Relations issued a paper in 2005 about how it would theoretically be nice for North America to go in the direction of the EU. This paper mentioned a 2005 initiative between the leaders of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico that created the Security and Prosperity Partnership for North America. It was the creation of this organization that "some said" in the article about the Idaho House was an agreement "between U.S. agencies and foreign governments (that has) the powers of a treaty but were never presented to the U.S. Congress". Actually, this is one of those initiatives that are required by tradition to come out of every major meeting between world leaders, which is announced with great fanfare, then sits there and does nothing until it's eventually cancelled in a cost-cutting move a few years down the line. Looking at the SPP website, it looks like the main thing they're doing now is coming up with a repetitive FAQ explaining why they aren't a threat to American sovereignty. ("Ah-ha, the New World Order is trying to fool us!", the black helicopter types will say while adjusting their tin-foil hats.) Here's what they say about the "proposed superhighway":
Myth: The U.S. Government, working though the SPP, has a secret plan to build a "NAFTA Super Highway."
Fact: The U.S. government is not planning a NAFTA Super Highway. The U.S. government does not have the authority to designate any highway as a NAFTA Super Highway, nor has it sought such authority, nor is it planning to seek such authority. There are private and state level interests planning highway projects which they themselves describe as "NAFTA Corridors," but these are not Federally-driven initiatives, and they are not a part of the SPP.
Even the aforementioned Rep. Ron Paul admits that Congress has only "provided small amounts of money to study the proposal". Now that the Idaho House has spoken out, though, the project is sure to fail!

As long as the black helicopters don't get the Idaho House members first...

Update 2212 13 March: Here's the text of the House "memorial". Note that it's essentially all about the SPP.

I've been promised the title of "Grand Poobah of the Internet" in the New World Order if I fool the sheeple into letting down their guard.

I live in Texas, and the proposed "Trans-Texas Corrider" (which I think would be part of this highway from Mexico to Canada) is making lots of people here unhappy. Lots of farmers and ranches would lose real estate through eminent domain. They also want to make it a toll road, with management and collected tolls going to a Spanish (I think - I know its not American) company for a very long time. Here in Texas, we don't have a history of toll roads that other parts of the country do. Yes, Houston and Dallas have had toll roads, and Austin just added some, but we like to be able to just get in our cars and drive. So don't just write off people who don't like this highway as "black helicopter" conspiracy nuts...

Miss Ladybug: I don't have any problem with people being opposed to the highway. It's the people who think that the SPP is an end-run around Congress to take away our national sovereignty that I mock and belittle.

Of course the Congress would never cede its Constitutional authority to a supranational organization.

I mean everyone knows that the WTO, World Bank, IMF, Bank of International Settlements and the United Nations don't exist.

It's obvious United States never fought a United Nations war in Korea and Bosnia and they certainly didn't ask for UN authorization for war in Iraq (twice). These are just paranoid delusions of the black helicopter crowd.

Michael New also was never court martialed for refusing to remove his US Army insignia, wear a UN blue beret and serve under UN command. It was all a dream.

And if your local municipality is adopting the "sustainable development" protocols of the UN's Agenda 21, that too is a figment of your imagination.

Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who's both a "Bush probably did 9/11"...

Do you have a quote for that slander?
If you put it in quotation marks, you must have a quote right?

I'm guessing not.

I linked to his statement about a "9/11 cover-up". Based on his statements appearing on many "9/11 Truth" websites, I'd say it doesn't look like he's buying the official story.

Hey Mr. Bubble. Is one comment cyber-stalking?

Nice blog anywho.

All I can say for the others who were upset (who sent me the link to that other blog), and who felt that those attacks were not warranted is that I asked them to stop, and they have.

Best of luck.
