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.

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.

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.
