Canadian oil firm sues to seize US land for Keystone XL oil headed to China
By Rady Ananda
The NYTimes reports that TransCanada, a Canadian oil company, promises to confiscate private land from South Dakota to the Gulf of Mexico, and has already filed nearly 60 lawsuits against private US citizens who refuse to allow the Keystone XL pipeline on their property, even though the controversial project has yet to receive federal approval.
“Randy Thompson, a cattle buyer in Nebraska, was informed that if he did not grant pipeline access to 80 of the 400 acres left to him by his mother along the Platte River, ‘Keystone will use eminent domain to acquire the easement.’”

As early as January of 2005, high-ranking officials were discussing the best way to sell the idea of North American “integration” to the public and policymakers while getting around national constitutions. The prospect of creating a monetary unit to replace national currencies was a hot topic as well.
Some details of the schemes were exposed in a secret 2005 U.S. embassy cable from Ottawa signed by then-Ambassador Paul Cellucci. The document was released by WikiLeaks on April 28. But so far, it has barely attracted any attention in the United States, Canada, or Mexico beyond a few mentions in some liberty-minded Internet forums.
Numerous topics are discussed in the leaked document — borders, currency, labor, regulation, and more. How to push the integration agenda features particularly prominently.

After free trade wiped out Mexico’s traditional agriculture, the drug cartels moved in. Flourishing drug demand in the U.S. and Canada has combined with the destruction of Mexico’s traditional economy to increase the power of the Mexican drug cartels. At the same time, the cartels are at war over the drug market in Mexico, with drastic results including the recent massacre of 72 undocumented migrants in Northern Mexico.

Victory for Foreign Affairs over Chemtura may scare Dow off.
The lawyers at the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade are not bragging about it—at least not to date—but they’ve just won an impressive victory in an $80 million-plus NAFTA lawsuit. Earlier this month, a panel of three arbitrators dismissed claims filed by the US chemical company Chemtura under Chapter 11 of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Chemtura had sought to hold Canada liable for financial losses related to the government’s phase-out of lindane, a hazardous agricultural chemical. However, the company failed to persuade arbitrators that government regulators acted without regard for scientific evidence or due process.

AlterNet published an article by the Southern Poverty Law Center mocking “the Right” for ten conspiracy theories. The Daily Bell responds to the charges below. When the Left agrees with the Right, the SPLC calls them both “extreme” — that is, anyone who doesn’t believe government propaganda and disinformation. This is a common psychological technique employed by governments and their agents: marginalize those who don’t go along with the program. ~ Ed.
