An effective way to combat an opposing group, belief, or opinion is to characterize it as a “conspiracy theory.” That term immediately conjures in the mind images of tinfoil-hat wearing kooks.
But when we examine the dictionary definition for “conspiracy” — any secret agreement between two or more persons to undertake an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act — then the notion that there are conspiracies is not so far-fetched. For that matter, the very existence of a federal law called RICO — Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act — is an acknowledgment that conspiracies exist!
The plain fact is that not all conspiracies are imaginary. There are at least 30 conspiracy theories that turn out to be true, including the Mafia, the CIA’s MK-ULTRA, asbestos, Watergate, the Tuskegee syphilis study, and the 1944 conspiracy to assassinate Hitler.
Now, a Wikileaks document confirms that the North American Union agenda to merge the United States, Canada and Mexico into a single monetary and political body is not some kooky fringe “conspiracy theory,” but a real conspiracy. Robert Hilz reports for Canada’s National Post, June 2, 2011:
The integration of North America’s economies would best be achieved through an “incremental” approach, according to a leaked U.S. diplomatic cable.
The cable, released through the WikiLeaks website and apparently written Jan. 28, 2005, discusses some of the obstacles surrounding the merger of the economies of Canada, the United States and Mexico in a fashion similar to the European Union.
“An incremental and pragmatic package of tasks for a new North American Initiative (NAI) will likely gain the most support among Canadian policymakers,” the document said. “The economic payoff of the prospective North American initiative … is available, but its size and timing are unpredictable, so it should not be oversold.” […]
In the cable, U.S. diplomats focused on a number of key areas to move forward with continental integration, including a possible common currency, labour markets, international trade and the borders of the three countries.

The North American Union conspiracy is proceeding according to plan. A week ago, the United States and Mexico signed an agreement allowing trucks from each nation to travel on the other country’s highways – a key provision of NAFTA.
Howard LaFranchi reports for The Christian Science Monitor, July 6, 2011, that under the agreement, the US will reinstate a pilot program for Mexican truck certification that was introduced under the Bush administration – and defunded by an angry Congress in 2009. Mexico, in turn, will immediately drop half of the tariffs on about 100 US products, with the rest to be removed when Mexican trucks actually start rolling across the border. The accord requires all Mexican trucks operating in the US to comply with US safety standards, and it mandates the installation of monitoring devices to track truck usage and compliance with service requirements.
The Obama administration’s US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood signed the agreement despite fears of unsafe Mexican trucks barreling along US highways, driven by unprofessional Mexican truckers, and in spite of growing resistance, especially in the US Congress, to free-trade provisions with Mexico.
