TAXPAYERS CHARGE VDOT PROMOTES FOREIGN HIGHWAYS
The Virginia Taxpayers Association says a resolution opposing the NAFTA
Superhighway and North American Union introduced by Sen. Roscoe Reynolds,
D-Martinsville, "will be a major tool in preventing highway crashes, saving
lives and preserving freedom for Virginians and all Americans.
"Reynolds' Senate joint resolution is especially significant because most
General Assembly members don't know that the Virginia Department of
Transportation has secretly been promoting sale of principal Virginia
highways to foreign private interests which expect to make billions by
charging tolls on these highways," the state taxpayer association charged
"Barbara Reese, chief financial officer of VDOT, was a programmed speaker at
a conspiratorial conference at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York Sept.
19 and 20 with highway officials from Mexico, several other states, the U.
S. Department of Transportation, private financiers from Spain, Latin
America, Australia, Scotland, Canada, Goldman Sachs, the Carlyle Group, and
a number of other financial organizations.
"Virginia taxpayers had to fork over a 1,999.00 attendance fee for Reese to
attend this terrible Waldorf blowout.
"Everyone at the meeting knew in advance purpose of the conference was to
expedite unconstitutionally turning over U. S. highways to foreign
public-private consortiums without approval or possibly even knowledge by
Congress, based on the NAFTA Superhighway blueprint already being
implemented in Texas, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Mexico and elsewhere,"
the VTA added.
"Alleged authority for VDOT in such action is Virginia's Public-Private
Transportation Act of 1995, under which the Pocahontas Parkway in southeast
Richmond was built. But Virginia citizens were not told at that time that
the Pocahontas Parkway would be an opening wedge for a citizens were not
told at that time that the Pocahontas Parkway would be an opening wedge for
a wholesale foreign consortium takeover of major U. S. interstates, under
several south-north Mexico to Canada corridors, where foreigners would levy
tolls without review by any U. S. elected officials and would even have
eminent domain to grab millions of acres of valuable farm and urban land for
"Key person in this atrocity is Bush administration's Tyler Duvall,
assistant secretary, transportation policy, US DOT. His management of the
NAFTA Superhighway is under direction of the unconstitutional Security and
Prosperity Partnership (SPP) signed by George W. Bush, Mexican President
Vicente Fox and Canada's Premier Paul Martin Mar. 23, 2005 in Waco, Tex.
"Under the NAFTA Superhighway, cargo containers unloaded from Chinese ships
on the west coast of Mexico will be transported across the Mexico/U. S.
border with only an electronic check, and no inspection until arrival at a
U. S. Customs station in Kansas City, in a building actually owned by the
"Mexican trucks with unsafe tires and brakes driven by Mexicans using
illegal drugs to stay awake will crowd highways, greatly increasing risk to
U. S. motorists," VTA warned.
"The NAFTA Superhighway already includes a Trans Texas Corridor partly
financed by the Spanish Cintra/Zachry Consortium with an initial payment of
1.2 billion unlawfully given to the government of Texas, which does not
actually own Texas highways, since they were all bought and paid for by
federal and state taxpayers. The Zachry Construction Company bribed members
of the Texas state legislature, with agreement by Republican Gov. Rick
Perry, a close friend and supporter of Bush, to approve the TTC.
"The SPP agreement created a North American Union with a single government
like the European Union, combining Mexico, the United States and Canada all
into one. The NAU will even have a new currency, the Amero, replacing the
U. S. dollar. All this was done without approval by Congress or even
knowledge by most members of Congress. The SPP is a top reason why Bush is
treasonously refusing to enforce command by the Constitution to protect the
United States against invasion by millions of illegal aliens.
"We expect Rep. Virgil Goode, R-5th, who introduced House Concurrent
Resolution 487 opposing NAU and the NAFTA Superhighway last year, to
reintroduce a similar resolution in the present Congress. Passage of
Reynolds' Senate joint resolution in Virginia will be vital in facilitating
passage of Goode's resolution," VTA said.
The South Carolina General Assembly is already considering a concurrent
resolution introduced by Rep. G. Ralph Davenport Jr. (R) Dec. 5, opposing
the North American Union.
In another action, the VTA called on all citizens to check the continually
corrected, updated and expanded Wikipedia encyclopedia (www.wikipedia.org)
on the 9/11 Commission Report "to see where the report was wrong and
incomplete. Wikipedia carries statements by the National Institute of
Science and Technology (NIST) opposing the detailed physical and engineering
analysis by Dr. Steven Jones, physics professor at Brigham Young University,
on how World Trade Center towers were brought down by demolition charges and
not by fires, but then truthfully reports that NIST has postponed
publication of its report several times.
"This constitutes an admission by NIST that they are unable to refute Jones'
masterful document showing the government has lied to us on 9/11," the VTA
Taxpayers also cited a Dec. 14 statement by Robin Hordon, who had worked as
an air traffic controller at the Boston center for 11 years that "9/11 was
an inside job. Air traffic controllers on duty then have been subject to
extreme threats and pressure to keep silent about the fact the Boston center
tracked American Flight 11 after it lost its radar and transponder all the
way to the World Trade Center, and tried insistently to alert the Pentagon
and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Hordon stated flight data
recorders and FAA tapes have been ordered to be shredded, because if studies
of that evidence were undertaken it would become very clear as to who was
really behind the attack."
The association said well known 9/11 truth activists in Vermont are planning
to use town meetings to bring about a Vermont state legislature resolution
calling on Congress to initiate impeachment hearings against Bush and Vice
President Dick Cheney together, "which is nowhere precluded by the
Constitution. Even spineless Democrat leaders would find it difficult to
oppose such hearings. Searching questions to witnesses would actually be
framed by the staff and not by busy committee members. Accurate information
brought out at these public hearings would be electrifying and change the
whole American public climate toward a true freedom agenda even if
impeachment itself were not actually voted."
Regarding an elected Muslim congressman taking oath of office on the Koran,
the VTA warned that "statements by the Council on American Islamic Relations
(CAIR) on the Koran saying Allah is the highest law of the land simply are
not compatible with the Constitution. While many Muslims seem to be nice
and law-abiding people, without denying them any rights under the
Constitution, the U. S. must absolutely ban further Muslim immigration to
avoid fractionalization of our society as in Europe."
(The following resolution by Sen. Roscoe Reynolds, D-Martinsville has been
introduced in the 2007 General Assembly. Number of the resolution had not
been assigned as this page went to press.)
SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION
Memorializing the Congress of the United States to take such constitutional
action as may be necessary to prevent the Executive Branch of the federal
government from unilaterally implementing the NAFTA Superhighway System and
also from implementing a North American Union.
WHEREAS, the safety of Virginia highways is a prime responsibility of the
Virginia General Assembly that cannot be delegated to any other entity; and
WHEREAS, a NAFTA Superhighway System from the west coast of Mexico through
the United States and into Canada is now being implemented by the Bush
WHEREAS, the system includes multiple connections with Virginia's already
heavily traveled roads, and is being implemented without any action by the
United States Congress; and
WHEREAS, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters has warned, in its
August, 2006 national magazine, that the NAFTA Superhighway will result in
U. S. trucks being replaced by Mexican, more unsafe rigs being operated on
American roads, and more drivers relying on drugs for making their long
WHEREAS, maintenance of Mexican truck brakes and tires falls far below
United States standards; and
WHEREAS, Mexican drivers are compelled by companies that employ them to
drive an excessive 25 days a month, and to drive 4,500 kilometers alone over
the course of five or six nights without sleep, requiring them to resort to
cocaine and crystal methamphetamine to stay awake; and
WHEREAS, the national Teamster magazine, in interviewing a sample of Mexican
drivers, found no one who had not killed persons in highway accidents; and
WHEREAS, the NAFTA Superhighway System will therefore bring on U. S. soil a
new army of drivers who are particularly likely to cause accidents on our
WHEREAS, given the generally acknowledged corruption of business in Mexico,
it will be particularly difficult, if not impossible, for Virginians, as
well as other Americans, to collect insurance claims against Mexican
companies that employ Mexican drivers who cause accidents here, and
insurance rates for Virginians and others are therefore likely to undergo a
sharp increase; and
WHEREAS, an initial portion of the NAFTA Superhighway System already under
way in Texas involves a pattern contract with the state by a Spanish-U. S.
Cintra-Zachry consortium that, in return for a single lump payment to the
state by Cintra, grants that foreign company the right to levy for years
tolls that cannot be regulated by the state, and will greatly increase the
cost of driving for all motorists; and
WHEREAS, neither taxpayers nor U. S. banks are willing to provide the
multiple billions of dollars required to construct the extremely large NAFTA
Superhighway System, and the needed funds are expected to be provided only
by foreign consortiums; the result will be that the arterial U. S. highway
system will be under foreign management and financial control; and
WHEREAS, in the United States House of Representatives, House Concurrent
Resolution 487 has been introduced, opposing not only the NAFTA Superhighway
System but also creation of a North American Union with Mexico and Canada;
WHEREAS, a North American Union, similar to the European Union and
essentially eliminating southern and northern borders of the United States,
is now being implemented by the Bush Administration without approval by the
United States Congress; and
WHEREAS, a North American Union threatens the sovereignty of the United
States, threatens to override and make irrelevant the U. S. Constitution,
and threatens to change the laws and the Constitution of the Commonwealth of
Virginia without consent of the citizens of Virginia; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED by the Senate, the House of Delegates concurring, That the Virginia
General Assembly hereby declare its formal opposition to allowing components
of the Interstate Highway System in Virginia to become part of the NAFTA
Superhighway System, and also its opposition to creation of a North American
Union; and, be it
RESOLVED FURTHER, That the Congress of the United States be urged to prevent
the implementing of the NAFTA Superhighway System and a North American
Union; and, be it
RESOLVED FURTHER, That the Congress of the United States be memorialized to
take such constitutional action as may be necessary to prevent the Executive
Branch of the federal government from unilaterally implementing the NAFTA
Superhighway System and a North American Union; and, be it
RESOLVED FINALLY, That the Clerk of the Senate transmit copies of this
resolution to the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the
United States House of Representatives, and the members of the Virginia
Congressional Delegation so that they may be apprised of the sense of the
General Assembly of Virginia in this matter.
