Former Mexican foreign minister calls for North American Union, Amero currency

Another Newsweek Conspiracy Theory Claim Debunked 170210top

Another of Newsweek’s ridiculous “conspiracy theory” claims has been debunked after a prominent former Mexican foreign office minister called for a North American Union and a single unified currency, adding to the voluminous reams of evidence that confirm an EU-style integration is being developed for the Americas, a notion Newsweek dismissed as “discredited” in their feeble “Know Your Conspiracies” hit piece.

As we detailed on Monday, Newsweek bosses gave intern David A. Graham the job of debunking the most prevalent “conspiracy theories” circulating today, but the result was a feeble, embarrassing and self-defeating example of lazy journalism that served to make Newsweek look like the real conspiracy theorists, since the majority of issues they denied are manifestly provable and openly admitted, such as the march towards global governance.

One of the claims made in the article was that the implementation of the North American Union and the Amero single currency was a “discredited theory”.

However, prolific Mexican politician and intellectual Jorge Castañeda, Mexico’s foreign minister from 2000-2003 and a global distinguished professor of politics at New York University, wasn’t discrediting the move towards a North American Union in a recent interview with the BigThink.com website, he was staunchly advocating it.

“Well, my sense is that we’re moving closer and closer to forms of economic integration with the United States and Canada and conceivably Central America and Caribbean could become part of that in the coming years,” he said. “I don’t see Mexico as a Latin American country. Too much of trade, investment, tourism, immigration, remittances, absolutely everything is concentrated exclusively with the United States. So, Mexico has to be part of a North American community, a North American union, which at some point probably should include some type of monetary union along European lines with a free flow of labor, with energy being on the table, etc,” said Castañeda.

Watch the clip here. Castañeda’s comments on the NAU begin at 1:45.

Newsweek’s source for the claim that the Amero single currency is a baseless conspiracy theory is that bastion of credibility, Snopes.com, which also claims that the entire North American Union issue is a hoax, even as prominent figures in both Mexico and America call for it on a regular basis.

Of course, reprising a similar tactic, Snopes sets up a strawman by using white supremacist, FBI informant and disinformation specialist Hal Turner as the sole source for their contention that the claim was discredited.

In reality, the planned introduction of the Amero, a pan-American currency lambasted in the Newsweek hit piece as another conspiracy theory, is common knowledge amongst all financial analysts worth their salt. Steve Previs of Jefferies International talked about it on a CNBC segment in November last year.

Steve Previs of Jefferies International talked about it on a CNBC segment in November last year.

In November 2007, renowned money manager Stephen Jarislowsky told a parliamentary committee in Canada that “we have to really seriously start thinking of the model of a continental currency just like Europe,” as he advocated the creation of a North American currency to replace the Canadian dollar, the U.S. dollar and the peso.

Vicente Fox himself admitted the plan for a North American “euro-dollar” currency during an appearance on Larry King Live in October 2007.

Asked about the possibility of “having Latin America united with one currency,” Fox admitted this was the “long term” plan, and would be implemented after a trading agreement, just as the Euro currency arrived as a long term consequence of the Maastricht Treaty.

In a subsequent appearance on The Daily Show With John Stewart, Fox also expressed his desire for the creation of a North American Union based on the model of the European Union, which would include Canada, Mexico and the United States.

Fox went further in a November 5 2007 speech in which he stated that NAFTA must be “expanded” along the model of the European Union, leading to the creation of a North American Parliament.

The Council on Foreign Relations’ publication Building a North American Community, openly calls for “a common North American security perimeter, the development of a biometric North American border pass, and the adoption of a North American tariff.”

“Often demonized as some type of “conspiracy theory” in mainstream American press, the so-called North American Union proposals have actually existed for some time,” admits the left-leaning website Raw Story.

But not according to Newsweek, who still label it as “discredited theory,” even as the most prominent public figures involved with promoting the project openly announce it to the public.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
