NY Times Bestseller contradicts Dick Cheney’s claims
Los Angeles, CA (July 31, 2007) -- Vice-President Dick Cheney says there is no “secret plan” to create a network of superhighways to facilitate a merger of the United States, Mexico and Canada. Dr. Jerome Corsi, author of the New York Times bestseller “The Late Great USA: The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada” (WND Books, ISBNs 0-9790451-4-2, $25.95, July 2007) concurs on one point - the plan’s not secret anymore.
“The wording in Cheney’s letter rivals Bill Clinton’s claim about the meaning of the word ’is’”, claims Corsi. “When Cheney says, ’The administration is not engaged in a secret plan to create a NAFTA super highway, as he asserted in a recent letter to a constituent, he’s right about exactly one thing - the cat’s out of the bag. Thousands of readers now know all about George W. Bush’s plans for their future…and they don’t like it one bit.”
As Dr. Corsi shows in “The Late Great U.S.A,” Cheney’s soothing comments belie the fact that this administration is encouraging the use of eminent domain to claim millions of acres of privately owned land, in order to build a series of NAFTA superhighways designed to allow Mexican trucks shipping uninspected Chinese goods from Chinese-owned deep water ports in Mexico access to all of the United States and Canada.
“If he needs to be informed, Vice-President Cheney need only read the speech delivered by former Sec. of Transportation Mineta, delivered in 2004 to the NASCO transportation forum in Fort Worth, TX,” comments Corsi.
In the speech, Mineta said, “There are, however, some things that we still need to do in the United States to fulfill our obligations under the NAFTA treaty. One of them is to finally open the market between Mexico and the United States for trucking and busing… And to our friends from Mexico who are here today, I say, ’Welcome, and get ready.’ Opening the border is of mutual benefit.”
Specifically referring to Interstate Highways 35, 29 and 94 – the core highways supported by NASCO as a prime “North American Super Corridor” – Mineta said:
"You also recognized that the success of the NAFTA relationship depends on mobility – on the movement of people, of products, and of capital across borders.
"The people in this room have vision. Thinking ahead, thinking long-term, you began to make aggressive plans to develop the NASCO trade corridor – this vital artery in our national transportation through which so much of our NAFTA traffic flows.
“It flows across our nation’s busiest southern border crossing in Laredo; over North America’s busiest commercial crossing, the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit; and through Duluth, and Pembina, North Dakota, and all the places in between.”
Asserts Dr. Corsi, “Surely Dick Cheney can’t be unaware of George W. Bush’s goal to merge the United States, Mexico and Canada into an EU-like nightmare entity when Bush’s own former Secretary of Transportation was so blatant about the creation of the NAFTA superhighway network upon which so much of Bush’s plan depends.”
Clearly the solution to Cheney’s confusion is to get a copy of “The Late Great U.S.A” into his hands. “WorldNetDaily is running a photo contest where readers can win prizes if they get a picture of themselves giving ’The Late Great U.S.A.’ to the major presidential candidates. Maybe we need to include the current Vice-President on that list.”
