Breaking Through the Mind Barriers

This weekend, I had the pleasure of being a guest on Darren Weeks' radio program, "Govern America".  Nancy Levant was the co-host.  The subject of the program was 'Regionalism'.   It's a subject that doesn't get discussed nearly as much as it should because regionalism is at the center of what's ailing America.  Why would I say that?   Because regionalism is a strategy of corruption of lawful, republican government.  It is betrayal of the electorate by agreement - sometimes trade agreement, sometimes partnership agreements and sometimes by Memorandum of Understanding.   It was because of my appearance on that program and discussing my research that helped me break through the mind barrier to reach the understanding of how the U.S. State Department came to be running our country.  They do it by the strategy of regionalism and they draw their power to do it from the International Agreements that have been signed that mandate domestic policy.


One of the subjects discussed on the program was the La Paz Agreement that was signed with Mexico in 1983.  In my opinion, this is one of the most important agreements that was signed not only because it was the predecessor to the NAFTA Agreement, but because of the way it was written - wide open so that it could be expanded by Agreement without going back to Congress, it defined an International Zone on the Mexican Border from which the State Department could operate and it contained provisions to allow private sector money to implement policies and programs. 


Taking into account the subjects to be examined jointly, the national coordinators may invite, as appropriate, representatives of federal, state and municipal governments to participate in the meetings provided for in this Agreement. By mutual agreement they may also invite representatives of international governmental or non-governmental organizations who may be able to contribute some element of expertise on problems to be solved. The national coordinators will determine by mutual agreement the form and manner of participation of non-governmental entities.


Proof of U.S. State Department involvement in state government affairs is to be found in this MOU from Governor of the State of Idaho to U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick in response to an MOU from Zoellick: 

Zoellick-Kempthorne, State Government Procurement, January 24, 2004

The above memo reveals subversive activities by Agreement not to mention violation of the Idaho State Constitution:

Idaho State Constitution, Article III

Section 5.Aliens not to be employed on public work. No person, not a citizen of the United States, or who has not declared his intention to become such, shall be employed upon, or in connection with, any state or municipal works.


One of the more startling discoveries of my research was that of Idaho's statutory participation in an organization named the Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER).  The PNWER is an organization that includes legislators from Alaska, Idaho,  Montana,  Oregon, Washington, Alberta, British Columbia Yukon governments - and it is sponsored by multinational corporations. 

The proposal for the PNWER originated with a group named "Pacific NorthWest Legislative Leadership Forum.  According to the PNWER history page:

The proposal establishing PNWER passed with 701 out of 703 sitting legislators voting in its favor following a three-year process initiated by the Pacific NorthWest Legislative Leadership Forum (PNLLF) in 1988. Six working groups were established, including environmental technology, tourism, recycling, value-added timber, workforce training, and telecommunications; some of these merged into or were replaced in later years by new areas of concentration.

The New York Times had an article about in 1990 titled, "States Try Pacts to Aid Economies":

"Political boundary lines are becoming substantially less important," said State Senator Alan Bluechel of Washington, who is one of the main proponents in an effort to form a confederation of Pacific Northwest states and Canadian provinces. "The driving force in the world today is economics."

Mr. Bluechel, co-founder of a group called the Pacific Northwest Legislative Leadership Forum, said he believes that in the evolving world economy, as it is being redefined by changes in Europe, at least 12 million people are needed to build industries big enough to compete with other export-driven economies. With linked economies, the states of Washington, Oregon, Montana, Alaska and the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, pass that threshold, with 15 million people, Mr. Bluechel said. Operating as a single economy, the region would have the 10th-highest gross national product in the world.

Organized a year ago, the group's members are at the point of hammering out the wording of the articles of incorporation for the confederation. The group will create a permanent economic steering committee that will be jointly financed by the members.


U.S. Constitution:  Article I, Section 10

Section 10. No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation; grant letters of marque and reprisal; coin money; emit bills of credit; make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts; pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts, or grant any title of nobility.


Since it is a violation of the U.S. Constitution for Idaho legislators to participate in the PNWER confederation, it had to have been done by Agreement probably by the authorization of expansion by Agreement of Article 9 of the La Paz Agreement.  



U.S. Constitution:  Article VI

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

All international agreements are negotiated UNDER the authority provided by the U.S. Constitution and therefore cannot override the Constitution because it is the superior document.  Because of that, traitorous international agreements cannot be enforced except by complicity by silence or by written agreement of the governments of the states.  


Idaho State Constitution:  Article I, Section III

Section 3. State inseparable part of Union. The state of Idaho is an inseparable part of the American Union, and the Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land.

According to that clause in Idaho's Constitution, Idaho's participation in the PNWER is a violation of Idaho's constitution because it violates the U.S. Constitution - any international agreements notwithstanding.
