Trilateral Governance Of N. America: Another Reason To Invest In Gold
The banning by one school district of all symbols of patriotism, both U.S. and Mexican, together with the completion of the Trilateral Summit in Cancún, Mexico, has set in motion trilateral governance of North America. There are no longer sovereign nation states within N. America. There now exists, a unified N. American political regime operating under the principles of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP). As awareness of this reality grows, there will be a flight out of fiat investments into gold based investments.
Schools Ban Patriotic Clothes, Flags (1)
In the wake of last week's immigration-reform protests, one school district is taking drastic measures, banning all symbols of patriotism, both U.S. and Mexican as reported in the following NBC article:
Beginning Monday, the Oceanside Unified School District is banning all flags and patriotic clothing. According to school officials, some students are using the garments and flags to taunt classmates.
Some critics of the move are calling it a violation of free speech protections guaranteed by the Constitution.
The American Civil Liberties Union points to the landmark Supreme Court case Tinker v. Des Moines. In that case, school officials attempted to stop students who were protesting the Viet Nam War from wearing black armbands.
"The school has to be able to show a strong likelihood that there is going to material and substantial disruption of school, and if they don't meet that standard, then they can't censor student speech," said Kevin Neenan of the ACLU.
School officials in Oceanside now say that flags -- whether they are U.S. or Mexican or any other country's -- have now become a divider on campuses, saying that some students are using them to taunt other students
Keith Brentlinger displays the U.S. flag outside Hatter, Williams and Purdy, his Oceanside business."To me, it's everything," said Brentlinger "I mean, like I said -- we truly live in the greatest country in the world."
Brentlinger said he was shocked on Tuesday when marching immigration-reform protesters tore down the flag outside his business. "Some of them just grabbed the flag, and pulled it off its aluminum pole, and it got ripped," said Brentlinger. Brentlinger told NBC that he put up a new flag the next day.
"Some protesters drove up in their car and snagged the flag from our building and took off," said Brentlinger. "I was extremely, extremely upset. I mean, it was just ... insulting is the word."
School officials are saying that the ban is just temporary and that they were just trying to prevent violence. They would not say how long the ban would be in effect.
No Flag, No Nation
When America's nation's flag is not flown, there is no longer any national identity; there is only the tyranny of a new world order. A unified North American Continent government is emerging, one where new principles of security and order replace the US Constitution.
The Trilateral Summit
Such new principles were discussed at the Trilateral Summit in Cancún, Mexico, on March 30 and31, 2006 as revealed in the press release: Bush, Fox, Harper Stress North American Unity, Cooperation. (2)
The presidents of the three nations told reporters that the agenda of North America's Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) will be pursued through trilateral Cabinet-level meetings on trade, environmentally responsible energy policies, immigration, border security and technological innovation.
And, "public health and emergency management are key issues, as well." said Harper; explaining that in addition to cooperating on SPP programs, the nations planned to "develop a coordinated and comprehensive approach to preparing for a possible avian or pandemic influenza outbreak in North America."
Border security within North America should not hinder trade and tourism and must facilitate legitimate travel and commerce, the three leaders agreed. They also agreed advanced technologies and close cooperation can help ensure that terrorists and criminals are denied entry.
"It's very important for us to share information and data and strategies amongst our three countries" to "prevent smugglers and terrorists and dope runners from polluting" North America, according to Bush.'
The Mexican president, who supports Bush's proposal for a guest-worker program in the United States that likely would legitimize the status of many Mexican migrants who have entered the United States illegally, said the question of migrants "can only be solved [once] we agree upon ... the framework of a legislation that will guarantee a legal, ordered, safe and respectful migration" that recognizes the human rights of even undocumented immigrants.
The Mexican-Canadian-U.S. relationship is "excellent," Fox added, because the three countries have much in common, despite their differences. "We shall be working together," he vowed, to advance the cause of prosperity and security throughout North America.
On March 31, the White House issued two fact sheets outlining the SPP initiative's achievements and anticipated future benefits. Reference " The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America: Progress" (3) and "The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America: Next Step" (4) on the White Web site.
The next North American summit will be hosted by Canada in 2007.
The Security and Prosperity Partnership (the SPP) was signed at Baylor University by U.S. President George Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin on March 23, 2005. These three came forth with a joint statement; part of which reads:
"We, the elected leaders of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, gather in Texas to announce the establishment of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.
Over the past decade, our three nations have taken important steps to expand economic opportunity for our people and to create the most vibrant and dynamic trade relationship in the world. Since September 11, 2001, we have also taken significant new steps to address the threat of terrorism and to enhance the security of our people.
Our Partnership will accomplish these objectives through a trilateral effort to increase the security, prosperity, and quality of life of our citizens".
Specifically the manifesto establishes a "common security" and a "common prosperity".
Regarding a common security, the SPP:
1) Establishes a common approach to security to protect North America from external threats, prevent and respond to threats within North America, and further streamline the secure and efficient movement of legitimate, low-risk traffic across our shared borders.
2) Implements common border security and bio-protection strategies;
3) Enhances critical infrastructure protection, and implement a common approach to emergency response;
4) Implements improvements in aviation and maritime security, combat transnational threats, and enhance intelligence partnerships; and
5) Implements a border facilitation strategy to build capacity and improve the legitimate flow of people and cargo at our shared borders.
Regarding a common prosperity, the SPP
1) improves productivity through regulatory cooperation to generate growth, while maintaining high standards for health and safety;
2) Promotes sectoral collaboration in energy, transportation, financial services, technology, and other areas to facilitate business; and invest in our people.
The logic of the Bush administration, is that the SPP is a security document; and therefore not being a treaty, is not subject to treaty procedures and approval mandated in the normal course of Senate Ratification as required by the United States Constitution.
This logic has gone unchallenged by Congress! This mostly likely due to the fact that Congress was scheduled to take action on CAFTA - the Central American Free Trade Act at the same time the SPP was signed by the three leaders.
Specifically, the logic is that the President, under the US Constitution, has Universal and Inherent Authority, that is, "Plenary Power" to deal with all security issues including emergencies, disasters and disease to the extent of ignoring Treaties, Acts of Congress and even The Judiciary.
Furthermore, Congress gave the president all necessary power to pursue terrorism as presented in Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/10/20021002-2.html
The Result Of The SPP going unchallenged is that the President's Word, Will and Way become the Law Of The Land in matters of national security and order.
Trilateral Governance of North America Has Gone Into High Gear
Again, with President Bush's "Progress" And "Next Steps" Documents (footnotes 3 and 4), going unchallenged by Congress, this time by debate over Guest Worker legislation, trilateral governance has gone into high gear.
Trilateral governance means the combined, repeat combined, leadership, interests and example of Presidents Bush, Fox and Harper, are to reign supreme over the N. American continent.
There are no longer any sovereign nation states. There exists now a unified N. American continent operating under new principles - principles of security and prosperity. The concept of sovereign nations operating from constitutional principles is simply a relic of a by-gone era,
Traditional borders now are to be checkpoints serving to apprehend criminals and interdict contraband. The continent's boundaries define a region of global governance within an international community.
The Word, the Will and the Way of the continent's leaders is now the Law Of The Land.
Awareness Of And Concern About Trilateral Governance Will Spur Investment In Gold
As investors become aware that radically new political governance is in progress, there will be a flight from fiat investments to gold. A balanced gold portfolio will include have three components.
1) The first component: Gold based ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds):
These increase with a price rise of gold. ETFs are funds, that is, investment funds like mutual funds, whose value corresponds to the underlying value of a group of stocks or a commodity. For example there is the SPY whose value is based upon the S&P 500; and GLD and IAU whose value are based upon gold.
2) The secondly component, pooled ownership of gold:
Kitco Pool Account
3) The third component, gold stored in a vault:
The Central Fund Of Canada (CEF) which maintains its assets in actual gold
and silver bullion in bank vaults
http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?s=CEF&t=1y&l=off&z=m&q=l&c= has experience a significant upswing.
The disadvantage of this investment is that its assets consist of 53.2% gold 45.6% silver and the rest in cash. Because of so much silver bullion in holding, CEF accelerated quickly in 2006 when silver rose dramatically. Silver is an industrial metal, any economic downturn will likely drive the price of silver down and thus the value of the fund would fall or not rise as quickly as pure gold based investments.
