NewsMax is the latest outlet to cover
the criticism surrounding the prospect of a North American Union (NAU). As Jerome R. Corsi documents in his new release from WND Books, The Late Great USA: The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada
, the concern stems from something called the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), an informal agreement struck in 2005 by President Bush and his then-counterparts from our neighbor nations, Vicente Fox and Paul Martin. According to NewsMax, measures of the SPP were included by Congress in the recently defeated immigration reform act. Corsi described the SPP as a harbinger of a bureaucracy-centric NAU:
"It is an attempt to turn North America into something like the European Economic Community," he says, "which began with economic cooperation and expanded eventually to include a common market, and then a full-scale regional government replacing, in many ways, the governing powers of the member nations."
While some commentators like Michael Medved
have been quick to dismiss Corsi, the NAU issue is gaining momentum. Corsi's book is currently the #1 selling non-fiction book
on Amazon.com and ranked #16 overall. It is also in the top 75 bestsellers on B&N.com
, as well.
