NASCO: Ron Paul Is "Confused" About NAFTA Superhighway
Road giants use semantics to whitewash
lynchpin of very real economic and social merger
North America's SuperCorridor Coalition (NASCO), often referred
to as a principle player in the proposal for a "NAFTA superhighway",
has hit out at presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Ron
Paul, branding him as "confused" and stating that it's
business "has nothing to do with any of his concerns"
over the increasing move towards a North American Union.
In a letter published in the Des
Moines Register, NASCO's executive director, Tiffany
Melvin, J.D., responds to a piece penned by Ron Paul last November,
Devotion to Freedom, Limited Government, in
which the Congressman referred to the proposed NAFTA highway,
This superhighway would connect Mexico, the United
States and Canada, cutting a wide swath through the middle of
Texas and through Kansas City. One proposed path takes the superhighway
right through Iowa. This superhighway can be built only by sacrificing
family farms through eminent domain.
Melvin and NASCO respond with the following:
Paul states the NAFTA superhighway will cut a wide swath through
Iowa. For decades, I-35 has carried international trade with
Canada, the United States and Mexico. Since the enactment of
NAFTA, people have referred to the existing I-35 with the slogan
"NAFTA superhighway" because it is a major north-south
artery that moves a substantial amount of international trade.
Recently, there have been rumors of a new NAFTA superhighway
- a giant new highway being planned to link the three countries
- and North America's SuperCorridor Coalition Inc.'s promotional
map has been used erroneously as proof that a blueprint of the
proposed giant highway is, in fact, a reality.
NASCO can state unequivocally that plans for a new giant NAFTA
superhighway do not exist. Our map depicts existing transportation
infrastructure not drawn to scale, but enlarged for promotional
Paul is confused and has tied separate initiatives together
into a sinister plot to destroy the sovereignty of the United
States. NASCO has nothing to do with any of his concerns. NASCO
is good for Iowa.

There is no dispute over the existence of the NAFTA
superhighway, NASCO admits that it already exists in the form
of I35 and other connecting roads. NASCO is claiming that the
proposal to link Canada, the US and Mexico does not exist on the
basis of semantics by insinuating that NAFTA trade corridors do
not incorporate the building of a "new" superhighway
by NASCO itself.
Although this convoluted word play has constituted
enough to deflect most mainstream hack journalists in recent months,
it has not swayed those who have actually researched the North
American Union agenda in its entirety, and that includes Ron Paul
and other members
of Congress and State Houses
NASCO describes itself as a “non-profit organization dedicated
to developing the world’s first international, integrated
and secure, multi-modal transportation system along the International
Mid-Continent Trade and Transportation Corridor to improve both
the trade competitiveness and quality of life in North America.”
It has received $250 million in earmarks from the U.S. Department
of Transportation to adapt existing roads as part of
one NAFTA trade corridor. Reports indicate that proposals include
a 10-lane limited-access road (five lanes in each direction) plus
passenger and freight rail lines running alongside pipelines laid
for oil and natural gas. One glance at the map of the NAFTA Super
Highway as produced by NASCO makes clear that the design is to
connect Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. into one transportation system.
Toll roads are to be placed upon existing roads in Security
Prosperity Partnership agreements that bypasses
Congress, agreements between the bureaucracies of the US and Mexican
governments, to raise capital to build the Superhighway that will
go South of Texas and into Mexico.
Security Prosperity Partnership documents reveal that out of
85 interstate highways, 83 of them are slated to go under this
agreement and toll roads are going down on them already. The money
from this operation with further fund the dismantling of US sovereignty
by seizing the infrastructure at it's very heart in a bloodless
The highway is to be linked to the Trans-Texas
Corridor the first leg of the highway which will
connect Mexico with the US. This is being overseen by the Texas
Department of Transportation (TxDOT) which is a member
of NASCO. The Trans-Texas Corridor is a separate part of the physical
infrastructure but is being built as part of overall plans to
deepen the integration of Mexico, the United States, and Canada
in a North American economic community that is a precursor to
The NAFTA corridor movement also involves CANAMEX,
another trade organization that promotes a Western tri-lateral
route utilizing I-19, I-10, I-93 and I-15 in the states of Arizona,
Nevada, Utah, Idaho and Montana to link the three countries in
trade. See below (click to enlarge).
Another non-profit group, the North
American Forum on Integration (NAFI), identifies
four bands of NAFTA corridors (Pacific, West, East and Atlantic),
all relying primarily upon internationalizing north-south existing
interstate highways into NAFTA trade corridors. See below.
The NAFI website states the following:
"Following the implementation of NAFTA, coalitions of
interest have been formed in order to promote specific transport
channels, to develop the infrastructures of these channels and
to propose jurisdictional amendments to facilitate the crossing
of borders. These coalitions include businesses, government
agencies, civil organizations, metropolitan areas, rural communities
and also individuals, wishing to strengthen the commercial hubs
of their regions."
"The North American trade corridors are bi- or tri-national
channels for which various cross-border interests have grouped
together in order to develop or consolidate the infrastructures.
The North American corridors are considered multimodal in the
sense that they bring into play different modes of transport
"The infrastructures may include roads, highways, transit
routes, airports, pipelines, railways and train stations, river
canal systems and port facilities, telecommunications networks
The government of the province of Alberta, Canada, highlights
the four trade corridors on
its own website, referring to NASCO's arm as "the
NAFTA superhighway". The Province's Infrastructure and Transportation
division helpfully published online the map of the NAFTA Superhighway
provide detailed information regarding their involvement
with the aforementioned CANAMEX Trade Corridor, stating:
CANAMEX was one of the first north-south corridors designated
as a High Priority Corridor under the National Highway Systems
Designation Act. Actively pursued by Alberta since the early
1990's, the CANAMEX Trade Corridor links Canada, the United
States and Mexico and stretches 6,000 km from Alaska to Mexico,
truly a pan-American corridor.
The goals of the CANAMEX Trade Corridor are to:
- Improve access for the north-south flow of goods, people and
- Increase transport productivity and reduce transport costs
- Promote a seamless and efficient intermodal transport system,
- Reduce administration and enforcement costs through harmonized
Of course, as we have highlighted, such improvements and efforts
to increase the flow of traffic requires immense funding (hence
roads which come with their own threat to freedom of movement)
and will incorporate enlargements to existing road networks. Enlargements
that DO constitute the "building of a new" Superhighway
and WILL threaten anyone who owns property wherever the enlargements
need to be made.
The architects of this North American unification are not just
in name merging agencies, laws and regulations, they are physically
getting rid of the borders by buying off and lobbying the politicians
at the state level, who then hand
the roads over to international bodies and their
article in MIT's Technology Review magazine, for June 30, 2006,
provides in-depth insight as to how the Spanish company Cintra
has become a leading player in superhighway toll road projects
in both Canada and the US In 1999 Cintra, working in conjunction
with Australia's Macquarie Bank, won a 99-year contract to operate
Toronto's Highway 407 toll road, now already built and operating
in 2007, which happens to run along Canada's premier NAFTA trade
Cintra is also contracted to operate toll roads in Indiana and
on the Trans-Texas Corridor.
At the end of January we reported
on the revelation that one of Cintra's conglomerate
partners, the afore mentioned Macquarie, has agreed to buy dozens
of newspapers in Texas and Oklahoma that have up until now been
harsh critics of the Trans Texas Corridor superhighway. This indicates
a clear example of influence peddling pointing to racketeering,
and a desperate lunge to silence dissent against the sellout of
American infrastructure and the North American Union.
Further evidence of the future planning for the various roads
comprising the "superhighway" can be found in Canadian
policy documents. Firstly a document prepared last year for the
Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada entitled Embracing
the Future: The Atlantic Gateway and Canada's Trade Corridor states:
Since the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement was signed with the
US, later expanded to become NAFTA, Canadians have reoriented
their trade links away from a national focus (east-west) to
a North American focus (north-south).... As globalization proceeds,
not as an offset to US-Canada trade or NAFTA enlargement and
integration, but as a close complimentary advantage, Canada
must adjust its thinking and design transportation strategies
Again we see a call for "an adjustment of thinking"
in accordance with NAFTA enlargement and integration.
A second Canadian policy document was signed on July 30 this
year by the governments of Canada, Ontario, and Quebec which announced
of Understanding (MOU) on the development of the Ontario-Quebec
Continental Gateway and Trade Corridor. The official
press release stated:
Canada's New Government has developed a National Policy Framework
for Strategic Gateways and Corridors to advance the competitiveness
of the Canadian economy in the rapidly changing field of global
commerce.... Future federal gateway and corridor strategies
will be guided by this framework, focused on transportation
systems of road, rail, marine and air infrastructure of national
significance to international commerce.
The Ontario-Quebec Continental Gateway and Trade Corridor represents
the North Eastern portion of the "NAFTA superhighway"
depicted on NASCO's map of existing road networks.
The mainstream media will keep telling you none of this is real,
that its on a par with invading space aliens and that if you believe
in any of it you are totally crazy. And NASCO, who as we have
shown are a major player, will keep using semantics to insinuate
anyone who talks about it is "confused" or has "erroneously
tied them into a sinister plot".
Of course, as with a great deal of the agenda for a North American
Union, there is no all encompassing "sinister plot",
it operates very bureaucratically, yet without Congressional oversight,
and is unfolding piecemeal for everyone to see. However, this
does not mean it has not been carefully planned is not a threat
to the Sovereignty of America, Canada and Mexico.
The agenda is being driven by elitist private interests operating
in cooperation with the globalist think tanks and lobbyists who
have usurped the overriding interests and responsibilities of
our governments for their own corporate gain and the power that
brings to them. They consequently have no duty to the prosperity
of the countries involved and the people who populate them, despite
being intimately involved in the fundamental operation of the
For NASCO to therefore declare that their business "has
nothing to do with any of his concerns" when referring to
Ron Paul's exposure of such activity represents the height of
arrogance and insults the intelligence of any free thinking person
living in America, Canada and Mexico.
