Selling American Highways to Foreign Interests
The Bush-launched “Security and Prosperity Partnership” (SPP 2005) and its companion “NAFTA Superhighway” was heavily opposed by the public and shut down several years ago after Lou Dobbs, then on CNN, exposed it.
The SPP was an off Congress radar intra-U.S., Canada, and Mexico infrastructure planning program — top corporations, government agencies actively planning for the eventual merging of these three countries into a NAU, including currency, legal, financial, to a supranational Constitution and courts. Congress had no knowledge or oversight. Today, this planning has resumed under Obama’s “Security and Prosperity Initiative”… and this TxDOT project, approved by Governor Perry, is a sub-set:
“TxDOT signed the 50-year deal with NTE Mobility Partners Segments 3 LLC, a U.S.-based wholly-owned subsidiary of Cintra, the Spanish-owned construction company. TxDOT picked Cintra in 2005 to build what some critics called the ‘NAFTA Super Highway’.
…The Cintra deal meant that once the TTC was completed, anyone who wanted to drive on it would have to pay an investment consortium in Spain for the privilege of driving in Texas. Although somewhat incomprehensible to most U.S. citizens, these public-private partnerships involve selling off key U.S. infrastructure projects to foreign entities. Granted, the ‘ownership’ rights of projects like TTC-35 would have remained with the state of Texas, yet selling off the leasing rights amounts in the thinking of most U.S. citizens to selling off the highway to foreign interests for the term of the lease.”
If one cannot see the larger picture here, there is always paint-by-numbers.
