The Late Great USA by Jerome Corsi - Book Review

"The development of a North American consciousness will likely come from increased trade and investment among the three NAFTA partners."
-Toward a North American Community Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

I just finished reading my copy of The Late Great USA, by Jerome Corsi. It is a good read and a fascinating look into the belly of the beast, so to speak, of the North American Union. I will admit that at first I was a little hesitant to read this book. Though I found the subject compelling I had an aversion to reading about it in depth. Perhaps I thought it would be boring - it was not. Perhaps I was afraid of what I would find out - I was not. I could not actually put my finger on what was causing me to procrastinate. Perhaps it was just that - procrastination.

If you are concerned about the future of our great country then this book is a must read. Why? Because if you don't read it you will not fully understand what is going on in America today. I thought I did - but I found out many things I was not aware of. For instance I had no idea how the European Union came to be. I had read about it in the news at some point a few years back and thought to myself, "Well, that sounds like a great idea." Little did I know what it might portend for America. There are some very valid reasons to form the EU. The history of Europe's wars are a good one. There are none to form a North American Union, with the exception of greed and the insatiable lust for more power by the elite.

Corsi begins by showing the motive and method for forming the EU. A fifty year plan that was fully realized some 22 years after Jean Monnet, the French architect and "father" of the EU had died in 1979. Through a well laid plan of stealth and slow incremental economic and trade agreements, the foundation was laid for the eventual EU and the Euro. It was discussed as part of an ongoing public policy debate in Europe over the years. So far there has been virtually no public debate on the NAU. In fact if anyone tries to bring it up they are immediately tarred and feathered as a conspiratorial nut and ridiculed and derided as delusional and paranoid. That type of response in and of itself ought to arouse suspicions as to the true motive and intent of the NAFTA/SPP/NAU agenda, which originated in the exclusive 'think tanks' of the CFR elite.

There numerous parallels between the formation of the EU and what is happening now with the so called Free Trade Agreement of NAFTA and the more secretive SPP agenda. The EU began with an innocent Coal and Steel Trade Agreement between France and Germany in 1950. Fifty years later it had developed into a full blown autocratic bureaucracy centered in Brussels with a common currency. Nameless "working groups" of faceless bureaucrats now decide the fate of Europe. Though the crumbling edifice of an elected representative government still exists - in reality Brussels determines the fate of Europe. The Central Bank of the EU controls Europe now. Is this our fate as well? To be controlled by Banks of Wall Street?

The method of the Bush Administration in pursuing this SPP agenda would have left Bill Clinton in awe. Word games, semantics and ambiguous definitions of what the meaning of is - is, characterize this less than forth coming administration. No wonder Bush gave Clinton a virtual blanket pardon when elected in 2000. Through carefully crafted "dialogs" that avoid the lawful process of Congressional oversight of treaties and legislation, they have forged ahead purposely avoiding any real public debate on this issue. Dishonesty, deceitfulness, stealth and denial are the methods of hundreds of "working groups". A shadow government that exists within the framework of our current Federal government. Appointed by Bush they utilize public time and taxpayer money to work on deceptively worded terms such as "harmonizing economic variables." FOIA requests are the only way Judicial Watch has been able to pry the jealously guarded scraps of information from the mouth of this stealthy but ravenous beast. Nothing is revealed openly and like a great battle every hill seems to be contested by those dedicated to the elusive non-existent cause of the NAU. "Methinks the lady doth protest too much."

The so called "urban legend" but often discussed NAFTA Super Highway is a good case in point. This highway was mandated by the NAFTA agreement but now it mysteriously doesn't exist anymore? Now the Bush administration plays word games and semantics around the idea. I guess they think we are stupid. Meanwhile the TxDOT moves forward with plans and land seizures and artist renderings like the Trans-Texas Corridor pictured here. They are subcontracting the project out to a Spanish firm (No not Mexican!), for an estimated cost of @$190 billion dollars. To add insult to injury Americans will have to pay tolls to the Spanish firm Cintra in order to use it! If it doesn't exist then just where is it coming from and where does it go then? What is it's non-existant purpose? They state very clearly that it is for bringing goods from China and Asia through Mexico and transporting them to the US and Canada. But we are suppose to believe it is not a critical part of a NAFTA Super Highway? Why through Mexico? No Teamsters Unions or Longshoreman Unions to deal with. No independent American Truckers. Less shipping costs and more profits for the multinational Corporations that are intentionally destroying America's economic and industrial strength for filthy lucre. The God of Free Trade is profit but "what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul in hell?"

The Bush administration is starting to take so much flak that they've put up an official government disinformation site. The following was posted about the non-existent NAFTA Super Highway:
Myth: The U.S. Government, working though the SPP, has a secret plan to build a "NAFTA Super Highway."

Fact: The U.S. government is not planning a NAFTA Super Highway. The U.S. government does not have the authority to designate any highway as a NAFTA Super Highway, nor has it sought such authority, nor is it planning to seek such authority. There are private and state level interests planning highway projects which they themselves describe as "NAFTA Corridors," but these are not Federally-driven initiatives, and they are not a part of the SPP.
Yea, sure it isn't and "these are not the droids your looking for" either! An interesting and very careful choice of words. So they admit it exists but they have nothing to do with it. Nothing could be further from the truth. NAFTA is a Federal initiative and so is the SPP. SPP is an extension or continuation of NAFTA, although they are trying to do an end run around the US Constitution by calling it just an "ongoing dialog," or "a process." If it were so good for America you would think that they would be very proud of it and want to take credit for it as politicians are often want to do? Interestingly they claim that these are just "private and state interests". So are we to believe that states decided to do this on their own with no input or oversight from the Feds?

Even more troubling is the claim that this is a private interest. Who's private interest would that be? So big business is running the US Government? Is that what they are admitting? The NACC is advising the SPP which is controlling our government? Private business interests take precedent over the national security in an elected representative government now? This is a morally corrupt group of people and they are not just Republicans. Don't think for a minute if Al Gore or John Kerry were President it would be any better. This process was started under Bill Clinton and it will probably be worse if Hitlary gets elected.

O.K., so maybe it's not a NAFTA Super Highway, maybe it's really called a NASCO Super Corridor? What difference does it make what it is called? That is not the point. It still has the same purpose. Just because it's a state or private interest doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Is the Bush Administration trying to claim that they have no interest in a project of this size? That they have no responsibility for it? That they have no Federal authority over it? What the hell are they doing running the US government then? They ought to fired for being incompetent and inept or better yet impeached. Interestingly this particular picture was removed from the NASCO site after they started receiving a lot of attention over it - but we still have a copy! The very idea of building a project of this size and magnitude without any Federal oversight is patently ridiculous and a flagrant lie.

At a NASCO forum
held on April 30, 2004 in Fort Worth, Texas Secretary of Transportation Norman Y. Mineta told the NASCO meeting:

"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 Peombina, North Dakota, and all the places in between."

"And to our friends from Mexico who are here today, I say, 'Welcome, and get ready.' Opening the border is of mutual benefit."

Just how is opening the border of mutual benefit to us? Oh excuse me, you meant mutually for the Chinese and your buddies getting rich off all that free trade? So if Mineta was not representing the Federal interests in this project - just who's interest is he representing? His big business buddies in NASCO?
His big business buddies in the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC)?
Is that what Bush means by private interests? I have to wonder how the Bush Administration's denial fits into this very revealing statement. Even on Mineta's website his speech is titled:


But somehow Bush can send his SPP lackey Jeffrey N. Shane to Congress and tell us with a straight face there is no plan for a superhighway and it is an "urban legend." Mineta called the NASCO Trade Corridor "a vital artery of our national transportation." Is he refering to the non-existant NAFTA super highway or the "urban legend"? It sounds pretty Federal to me. After all he is part of the Federal government? More Bush word games. Mineta is out there lauding the project and his undersecretary Shane is in front of Congress lying about it - saying it doesn't exist and calling it an "urban legend". Where is the MSM on this one? Silent as Rockerfeller promised. When Clinton was President, Republicans chaffed at his blatant lying. Have they now had a change of heart? A taste of power? Notice how Mineta calls it North America's Superhighway? Not America's anymore. North America - get used to it. More not so subtle SPP/NAU jargon of Robert Pastor. Corsi correctly identifies CFR member Pastor as the "father' of the idea of North American Union.

Jerome Corsi has an interesting literary background. Liberal Democrats still froth at the mouth for his part in "outing" John Kerry in the 2004 election with Unfit for Command. So Kerry was a pompous fraud that kept wounding himself because he was to stupid to learn the safe range of the M79 Grenade Launcher. Get over it! He lied so he could get purple hearts awarded when he should have received a band-aid. Get over it! He lied to Congress and the American people about the war just to get into politics and make a name for himself. Get over it! He stabbed his own soldiers in the back by lying about them and comparing them to Genghis Khan. Get over it! We have bigger fish to fry here.

It actually gives Corsi a lot of credibility in my estimation because like myself, here is a guy that supported Bush in both elections. Once he learned the truth about the CFR intention to create a North American Union and what was really behind our open borders and unofficial illegal immigration policy he did not hesitate to "out" Bush. So I consider him to be a true America hero for writing this book. Heck maybe GW should award him the Medal of Freedom. That is something Bush will surely never receive. Corsi pursues this touchy subject with an admirable measure of judicious restraint and objective analysis. All information is clearly documented and can be verified quite easily as I did myself on the important issues that I wanted to check.

Is the plan to create a North American Union a product of paranoid conspiratorial delusion or a reality being put into action as we speak by OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS? Corsi provides the clear documentation needed to show that it is indeed a real plan. It seems the only real conspiracy is the one by those involved including the media to deny it. Those easily led and fooled will of coarse repeat the denials with little if no real thought or investigation. Blind partisan political loyalties take priority over the truth these days. Bushbots or Clinton clones, it matters not. Such is the sorry state of political discourse for many in America today. Future generations depend on us to be alert and vigilant. They depend on us to take decisive action to preserve America's sovereignty and destiny to be a beacon of freedom to the world. The elite would twist that into a beacon free trade under a One World Government that they control. That was not the intent of our founding fathers. Greed and the lust for money has twisted their loyalty and honor. Though they were born American they have no allegiance to America, our country, the home of the free and the brave.

There is much more covered in the book and I highly recommend that you get a copy and read it.
  • Details of the NAFTA Free Trade fraud and ongoing SPP deception.
  • Funny money accounting practices that hide the magnitude of the real Federal budget deficits.
  • A Customs port in Kansas City built and paid for by American taxpayers and refered to as "Mexican sovereign territory.
  • Self destructive Free trade policies that hide the VAT (value added Tax) of other countries and are unfair to American workers and companies.
  • Massive trade deficits that are bankrupting America.
These are just some of the critical issues covered in detail by Corsi. "The very future of our great country and destiny depends upon it. You can even read it on Amazon as it is not out in paperback yet. I bought my copy at World Net Daily.

"While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. "

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.
