Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC)

From the U.S Trade Representative's office:

"The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum (APEC) was established in 1989 in response to the growing interdependence among Asia-Pacific economies. Starting out as an informal dialogue group [ facilitated by George Herbert Walker Bushwhacker] , APEC has now become the primary regional vehicle for promoting open trade and practical economic cooperation. Its goal is to advance Asia-Pacific economic dynamism and sense of community.

APEC has 21 members - referred to as "Member Economies" - which account for more than 2.5 billion people, a combined GDP of $ 19 trillion US dollars and 47 percent of world trade."

In June of 2001, the APEC ministers of trade met to discuss regional trade policy.

October 17-18, 2001, APEC ministers issue Joint Statement

October 21, 2001 APEC leaders issue the Shanghai Accord

"At the Shanghai meeting, the leaders also issued the Shanghai Accord in which they committed themselves to broaden APEC's vision for the future by identifying a conceptual and policy framework to guide APEC in the new century. The Accord included clarifying APEC's roadmap for achieving the free trade and investment goals on schedule with an assessment of overall progress in 2005, promoting the adoption of appropriate trade policies for the New Economy, following up on the APEC Trade Facilitation Principles, pursuing greater transparency in economic governance, and strengthening APEC's implementation mechanism.2"

NAFTA Free Trade Commission: Joint Statement: "A Foundation for Future Growth"


PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO - Following the May 28 meeting of the NAFTA Free Trade Commission, Mexican Secretary of Economy Luis Ernesto Derbez, United States Trade Representative Robert B. Zoellick, and Canadian Minister for International Trade Pierre S. Pettigrew are pleased to release the following Joint Statement which outlines the overall results:

As we look back over the eight years since NAFTA entered into force, we are pleased with its unconditional success. The Agreement has brought economic growth and rising standards of living for people in all three countries. In addition, NAFTA has established a strong foundation for future growth and has set a valuable example of the benefits of trade liberalization.

Since 1994,our trilateral trade has more than doubled, now surpassing US$622 billion, more than US $1.7 billion is traded every day through our borders. Investment in our three countries has also grown significantly, making North America one of the most competitive, prosperous and economically integrated regions in the world. As we approach January 1, 2003, when nearly all tariffs between our three countries will be eliminated, we are pleased to note that the ultimate goal of the NAFTA of lowering costs for producers and lower prices for consumers is being achieved.

In looking at the future, we reaffirmed our determination to complete the full implementation of the Agreement according to the established schedule and directed officials to review the prospects of additional trilateral work that could stimulate further the trade between our three countries to allow the realization of the full potential of a more integrated and efficient North American economy.

We reviewed the operation of Chapter 11 of the NAFTA and directed experts to continue their work examining the implementation and operation of Chapter 11, including developing recommendation as appropriate. To better undertake this task, we directed our experts to identify shared priorities concerning the operation of Chapter 11 and to report to the Free Trade Commission actions as appropriate. The experts are to report to Ministers on a regular basis and, at a minimum, prior to the next meeting of the NAFTA Deputies in the Fall of 2002. We view this work as a necessary and highly beneficial to the effective and proper implementation of the Chapter as well as to increase public understanding of the operation of the Chapter.

We reaffirmed our strong support for further regional and multilateral trade liberalization, and especially the cooperation among, and leadership shown by, the NAFTA partners. These efforts should serve as a model for cooperating amongst ourselves in other regional and global fora, such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). In APEC we are cooperating to implement the elements of 2001 APEC Leaders Declaration, in particular those contained in the Shanghai Accord on transparency, trade facilitation and the new economy, as well as those relating to WTO capacity building and biotechnology.

We are committed to achieve significant progress in the WTO negotiations by the 5th Ministerial to be held in Cancun in September 2003, and to complete the negotiations by January 2005. We are pleased that in the Free Trade Area of the Americas we have been able to initiate market access negotiations. This should enable us to keep on track to conclude the FTAA negotiations no later than January 2005. Our negotiators continue to make progress on consolidating the text and we look forward to reviewing the new texts at the FTAA Ministerial in November. We will work with the smaller economies so that all countries can meet the agreed negotiating deadlines.

We reached agreement on a trilateral communications workplan to inform the public of the success of the agreement, to disseminate information, and to promote transparency for better understanding of the agreement. We have published a trilateral brochure on NAFTA's 8th year, which can be found at our ministries web sites.

Finally, we agreed that Canada will host the next NAFTA Commission Meeting at the Ministerial level next year.


So essentially, what we see with the above is that the U.S. Trade Representative's Office has joined forces against American interests by using the threat of NAFTA Chapter 11 to divide and conquer the United States of America - undermining U.S. sovereignty by accommodating a transportation system that serves China's interests - not U.S. interests. 

It's clear from these diagrams that there is no benefit to the United States to participate in this transportation system designed for the import of Chinese goods.  Nor is it a benefit to the United States to be involved in "Free Trade of the Americas - or more accurately, North American Union since the goal seems to be to dismantle the United States as a nation. 


What precipitated the development of this webpage was the discovery of APEC being involved in another facet of the developing police state U.S.A.

The initial discovery was made by an outstanding researcher in Arizona.  She found legislation concerning something called the NAFTA datalink.

Whereas, the passage of the federal North American Free Trade Agreement in 1993 created a free trade corridor connecting the United States, Canada and Mexico; and

Whereas, the reduction and elimination of trade barriers has led to increased opportunities for businesses that are based in this state to have access to Canadian and Mexican markets for investments, goods and services; and

Whereas, these businesses must have timely access to investment and trade related information in order to take advantage of these new business opportunities; and

Whereas, the legislature of this state in Laws 1994, chapter 193 established the Joint Committee on the NAFTA Datalink System to study the feasibility of establishing a computer network to link existing investment and trade related databases throughout the CANAMEX region; and

Whereas, the NAFTA Datalink study committee has awarded a contract for consulting services to analyze the viability and design a prototype of the NAFTA Datalink System.


A datalink is a special kind of private network. A network called the NAFTA Datalink connecting businesses involved with trade on the CANAMEX corridor has to be the same type of facility and system as the Kansas City SmartPort only for the CANAMEX region

"KC, the online component of Kansas City SmartPort, Inc., has been created to assist companies with transportation and logistics activities.  From basic industry information, to locating service companies, and improving supply chain logistics, SmartPort is America's inland port solution."

SmartPort Initiatives

In working to carry out the objectives stated in the mission, SmartPort plays an active role in three crucial areas:

  • Economic Development. SmartPort is focusing on attracting investments from companies with significant transportation and logistics elements such as distribution centers, warehouses, third-party logistic providers, and manufacturers.
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems. SmartPort is working to improve the Kansas City area’s ITS infrastructure by first analyzing the needs of the industry and then developing architectural designs and test projects to meet those needs.
  • Business Services. SmartPort is working to bring additional services, such as foreign customs offices, to the Kansas City area to aide business of all size in moving their goods both domestically and internationally.


With a little more research, a document was found on the Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation website regarding the plan for "Intelligent Transportation Systems" (ITS) and the planned datalink systems

System Goals

In the case of the prototype ITS DataLink system the desired goal was to build a system that could quickly and easily allow a user to determine system performance parameters that would apply to a variety of applications.

In addition to the normal traffic volume information, it will be possible to collect the following:

Privacy issues are an important consideration when information is collected about individual vehicles or persons. These tend to be either individual vehicles (e.g. probe vehicles with AVI transponders or GPS receivers) or persons (e.g. smart cards). In the past typically, information on an individual level was gathered in relation to toll road operations or perhaps on specific studies where drivers have agreed to be probe vehicles or test subjects for data collection. In the future, people may not be aware that vehicle tracking information is being utilized. In all of these cases, information about individual vehicles or persons should either be stored in an anonymous manner (i.e., no way to connect an identification number with a person or vehicle) or not stored at all.

In the current case of TransGuide loop detector data, privacy is not an issue because no information is collected about individual vehicles or persons. However, the Model Deployment Initiative (MDI) in San Antonio includes the deployment of AVI transponders to gather link travel times from participating commuters. The travel times collected by these probe vehicles are a potentially rich source of information to transportation planners; however, storage of the data should make the individual probe vehicle transactions anonymous or aggregate the data. Efforts to incorporate this vehicle-based information into the current ITS data management system for San Antonio should protect the privacy of commuters with AVI transponders.

No matter what they say, if they can collect it, they will use it. 

Canada's ITS network - harmonized standards with the U.S. ITS network.

Canadian representatives have been extensively involved in the development of harmonized DSRC technology and related standards for North America and international markets. For example, “Canadian DSRC Recommended Practices” was issued in 1997 and a NAFTA trilateral agreement on Guiding Principles for DSRC was signed in January 1998.

Maintain liaison with national and international bodies with ITS standards related responsibilities including Standards Council of Canada, ITS America, NAFTA (expanded) Transport Consultative Group, Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum, the International Telecommunications Union and other organizations to advance the interests of Canada.

ITS Canada

ITS America This logo is a little small, but it matches the banner below.  It's a North American Union logo.  The top symbol represents the bars on the American flag.  The star in the center is for Mexico.  And the bottom more solid bar is for the Canada. 
On my search for ITS America, I found a pdf with this logo.  Imagine my surprise when I checked to see who the organization was that posted this pdf.  Look at the list of the members of Congress who are involved in this.  It's the 666 Mark of the Devil...Traitors Club


The above should read,  It Was America....
