Canadians don't want the SPP to "absorbed [Canada] into the U.S.[ and Mexico]"

Continental integration on the march

It's a great irony that, while the United States has probably never been less popular among Canadians than in the era of George W. Bush, plans to integrate Canada more deeply into the U.S. have been proceeding at a brisk clip.

The threat of Canada being absorbed into the U.S. has traditionally provoked strong reactions here, as the pitched electoral battles over the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in the 1980s and '90s attest.

But the issue seems to have largely disappeared in recent years, leaving the impression that the push for deeper integration has stopped or that Canadians no longer care about it. Neither is true.

Rather, what's happened is that those pushing for deeper Canada-U.S. integration – principally members of the corporate elite on both sides of the border – have become more sophisticated in their strategy. Rather than loudly trumpeting thei…

"Recently released documents uncover...secrecy surrounding..." the end of the USA

The secrecy surrounding the talks come as no surprise to those who have been following the Security and Prosperity Partnership. The SPP is carrying out a merger of the three sovereign North American nations

July 9, 2007
The Corbett Report has obtained minutes from the highly-secretive Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) Ministerial Meeting held in Ottawa on February 23rd, 2007.

This meeting — attended by political heavyweights from Canada, the United States and Mexico — received much criticism in the Canadian press at the time for being needlessly secretive. This was in fact the main focus of a Canadian Press report from that day headlined "Officials play down criticism that talks too secretive" which noted how "North American ministers deflected criticism that they had consulted only big business for their talks on trade and secur…

Did Mom Who Killed Newborn Babie Kill Her Three Unborn Babies?

Her only crime according to "Republican" Rudy was not having the unborn and newborn babies killed by abortionists. If Rudy wins we are about to see the end of the Republican party.

OCEAN CITY, Md. (July 30) - Investigators found three tiny bodies wrapped in plastic and hidden at the home of a woman who was charged last week with killing her newborn child, police said Monday.

Members of an FBI team examine a patch of ground Monday outside the home of Christy Freeman, who was charged with killing her newborn child last week. Police found three dead fetuses at the home over the weekend.


None of the bodies was full-term, and only one of the four deaths was recent, said Ocean City Police spokesman Barry Neeb. "The rest could be a number of years old," he said.

Two of the bodies were found in a trunk in Christy Free…

The period following Vatican II reminds Benedict XVI of the "total chaos" after the Council of Nicaea

All Against All: The Postconciliar Period Recounted by Ratzinger, Theologian and Pope

The period following Vatican II reminds Benedict XVI of the "total chaos" after the Council of Nicaea, the first in history. But from that stormy Council emerged the "Credo." And today? Here is the pope’s response to the priests of Belluno, Feltre, and Treviso

by Sandro Magister


ROMA, July 27, 2007 – Like two summers ago in Aosta, again this year Benedict XVI, during his vacation in the Alps, wanted to meet with the local priests and respond to their questions.

He did so on the morning of Tuesday, July 24, in Auronzo di Cadore, in the church of Santa Giustina Martire, against the backdrop of the Dolomite mountains.

The pope responded spontaneously to ten questions on a wide variety of issues.

For example, in relation to the growing presence of non-Christian immigrants in Italy and Europe, he explained how to reconcile the proclamation of the Gospel and dialogue with the other religi…

Some advice as to how to get a landslide victory in the primary and in the election.

I don't agree with Richard Salbato's support for Fred Thomson, but I think his advice could help a real pro-life candidate like Brownback. Many pro-life groups believe Thomson is the real thing.

I agree with Jessica Echard, executive director of the Eagle Forum, who said "The conservative movement is looking for a new conservative rock star, to put it bluntly," she said. "Maybe some are too quick to jump on the [Thomson]bandwagon . . . this is the stage when we need to be asking all these questions."

Thomson needs to be asked some tough questions before we support him. That said here is "some advice as to how to get a landslide victory in the primary and in the election" by Richard Salbato.

Dear Fred Thomson,

I am so disappointed with those running for President on both the Democratic and Republican sides that I went to your web site to see what you stand for. http://www.ontheissues.org/senate/Fred_Thompson.htm To my surprise your stand on ever…

The only solution is the Iraq Exit Strategy backed by Joe Biden, Michael Savage and Sam Brownback.

‘Let Iraqis kill each other,’ [Iraq] Catholic bishop says, calling for U.S. withdrawal


The Catholic News Service reported Chaldean Catholic Bishop Ibrahim N. Ibrahim said: "'Let the Iraqis kill each other, but let the occupying power get out, because they are not killing each other because they are Sunni or Shiite, but because they are with the Americans or against the Americans.'"

"'Things are worse and worse and worse every single day, even for the Americans. The best thing is to withdraw, and then let the brothers attack each other,' [Iraq] Bishop Ibrahim said."

"U.S. troops should at least withdraw from the cities, and he believes the warring factions would eventually reach some sort of power-sharing arrangement."

Keep it Simple, Stupid

Richard Salbato 7-11-07

When I was designing automation machines (robots), I went to up-state New York to add a feeding system to one of their assembly machines. They were by far the best engineering team I have ever met with. Their systems were amazing, fast, reliable, and if you look closely, very simple. If there were ten ways to do something they would always take the simplest way to do it. In fact, they had one sign on every wall of every room in the huge building: KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID.

In fact, that is what Einstein said about himself. He said that he reduced everything he thought about to simple terms. Truth is simple and takes few words, whereas error is complicated and requires a lot of words and good salesmanship. Error is often accepted simply because it is expedient and always offers the easy way out of any controversy.

Truth is not easy but it is simple. Truth, …

The Real Reason for the War In Iraq?

The Real Reason for the War In Iraq?

Was a Iraq threat to destroy the US dollar the real reason for the war in Iraq? Is the president of Iran crazy? Is Iran going to be the next country to try to destroy the US dollar? I don't know. I do know that Richard Salbato is a smart man and has many smart contacts around the world.

War With Iran Has To Happen

By Richard Salbato


When I wrote about and supported the attack on Iraq, I was attacked by even my close friends, saying that even the Holy Father, John Paul II, preached against the war. They also pointed out that the motives for the war were really oil and money and not the threat of Iraq against other countries. I agreed with all that they said, but still supported the war because I have many friends from Iraq who suffered under the dictator and his Eastern European private army. I pointed out that even if the motives were wrong, the results could not be worse than not going in to protect these people. Now that the trial of the …
