The mantle and the personnel* of the ‘Security and Prosperity Partnership’ are being transferred to a variety of interlocking organizations working towards the same goal in a deliberate act of political metastasis. The following is a comprehensive survey of the various thinktanks and summits that are being convened to covertly facilitate the economic and political integration of North America. Did you get the memo? Did you see this covered in the news? If not, then you can thank Mr. Gabriel at NAUResistance.org for his focus on keeping the nation appraised of ongoing threats to its sovereignty. (*Pedro Aspe, co-chair of the North American Forum, was also a co-chair of the Council on Foreign Relation’s SPP task force, and a signatory to ‘Building a North American Community‘, the flagship document of the SPP.)

With the demise of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America and the restructuring of many of its key priorities under the banner of the North American Leaders Summit, other trilateral initiatives are also passing on the mantle of deep continental integration.
The Fifth Annual North American Forum was held in Ottawa on October 4-6, 2009. In a news release the group describes itself as, “a community of Canadian, Mexican and American thought leaders whose purpose is to advance a shared vision of North America, and to contribute to improved relations among the three countries.” It goes on to say that, “They come together annually to explore linkages among the mutually reinforcing goals of security, prosperity and enhanced quality of life.” Meetings are co-chaired by former U.S. Secretary of State, George Schultz, former Premier of Alberta, Peter Lougheed, as well as former Mexican Finance Minister Pedro Aspe. The North American Forum has no business office and no business address. It consists of the three co-chairs, along with their extensive network of contacts in government, business and the military, meeting privately to champion North American integration. The news release also stated that, “This year’s meeting of the North American Forum focused on the need for Canada, Mexico and the United States to work together in responding to the global economic crisis and promoting a quick return to strong and sustainable growth. In addition, the Forum included special sessions on two critical issues: one on energy and the environment, and the other on transnational crime, arms smuggling and drug trafficking.” The North American Forum has been described as a parallel structure to the SPP.
