Part IV: 9/11 Faux Pas Uncovers North American Union Highway Toll System

Editorial Note: Scholars for 9/11 Truth linked to my 14 September entry "Fascism Alert: Academic Censorhship in Utah via Desperate White House," available in my archives section in the right margin. When I twice emailed ST9/11 founder Dr. James Fetzer (jfetzer@d.umn.edu) about the changed URL for that piece, both bounced back with a fatal delivery error. If you have a more recent email address for Dr. Fetzer, please leave it for me either in a comment or the email address provided under my profile.--Moose.

Keeping track of players darting in and out of the White House and between its classified assignments for staging its 9/11 terrorist attacks or secretive North American Union can be as challenging as remembering the cast of characters in a Russian theatrical production of War and Peace.

For the moment, though, let's look at two marginal players in the New World Order criminal enterprise coordinated out of the White House. Though of nodding acquiatance, both recently passed in the White House, one turned out after outing Dick Cheney on 9/11 as the other, a rank greenhorn unschooled to Washington's vetting process, gave up critical information in Senate testimony on the White House's planned interstate highway toll system for what once was the "United States."

When George Bush (read "Dick Cheney") appointed Mary Peters to replace Norman Mineta (below) as US Secretary of Transportaion, George-Dick minimally needed a capable type, one not privy to classified 9/11 truths and immune to "Mineta moments" of honesty that this summer resulted in the televised fingering of the Vice President for strange "bunker behavior" on 11 September 2001.

In case you missed it, Dr. James Fetzer, founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, outed Mineta on the 22 June broadcast of Fox News' Hannity and Colmes Show for 9/11 Commission testimony about Dick Cheney's role in the fates of two of the four flights hijacked that terrible day.

When Colmes asked his guest for evidence of White House complicity in 9/11, Fetzer cited Mineta's exchange with commission co-chair Lee Hamilton on what Mineta overhead after entering Dick Cheney's operational center bunker around 9:20 on the morning of the attacks. Minetta not only learned of Flight #93's shoot-down order. But he also overhead enough of a seperate conversation between Cheney and an aide to deduce to deduce the Vice President had issued a stand-down order before Mineta entered the bunker permitting American Airline Flight #77 to continue unimpeded to the Pentagon.

Don't accept my third-hand account of Mineta's searing revelations. Watch this 4-minute segment, originally televised by C-SPAN, in which he tells Hamilton about learning of special orders for Flights #77 and #93 as he huddled in Goebbels'--I mean, Cheney's--bunker.

Surely Mineta's amazing claims, though circuitous and stumbling, merited inclusion in the 9/11 Commission Final Report.

Not a snowball's chance in hell. Phillip Zelikow, the 9/11 Commission's Executive Director in charge of the panel's investigative agend--and co-author of a book with Condelezza Rice before appointed to that plumb assignment--eliminated all references to Mineta's testimony from the final report. If you search (PDF Reader required) the bogus 585-page document, Zilkow's fictional narrative has Mineta first appearing (page 326) on 11 September 2001 in the evening for a National Security Council meeting with George Bush immediately following the Resident's 8:30 P.M. speech to the nation. Minetta does merit, however, two additional citations--in an appendix and footnote--but both are unrelated to his damning testimony.

The day after Professor Fetzer revealed Mineta fingered Cheney on 9/11 to Fox News Network's stable of primetime conservative viewers, Minetta resigned his cabinet post, effective 7 July 2006.

Before exiting stage left, Mineta, with 5.5 years on the job, became the longest tenured Tranporation Secretary in the Department's history. (1)

Enter Stage Right: Mary Peters, North American Union Booster

As a passive but willing confidant to palace intrigues in both Bill Clinton and George Bush Jr.'s administrations, Norm Mineta is tough act to follow. But as Norm's replacement, Mary Peters is up to the challenge. Almost.

As Bush's nominee as Transportaton Secretary, Mary has garnered some well-deserved flack on Capitol Hill. Not only has her unconditional support of the North American Union rightly concerned some American Heartland congress-criters. Still others are put-off by her dodgy willingness for "US" taxpayers to shell out the dollars for her new gaggle of interstate highways and then have "US" drivers effectively pay for it again through a toll system.

The week after Peters' nomination, the widely-published investigative/ intelligence journalist Wayne Madsen was even more taken aback with her (and the President's) murky connections to a land grab frenzy currently unfolding in Texas in preparation for construction of the preliminary 600-mile Oklahoma-to-Mexico leg of a proposed superhighway to reach into Argentina that physically will join Mexico, Canada and the US in a North American Union (see Madsen's last "September 8/9/10" entry):

George W. Bush's pick for Transportation Secretary represents a major conflict-of-interest designed to spur the construction of the Trans-Texas Corridor -- a project in which Bush and his cronies are heavily invested. Last week, Bush nominated Mary Peters to replace Norman Mineta as Secretary of Transportation. Unlike Mineta, a former congressman who then became a Vice President [of] the aerospace defense giant Lockheed Martin, Peters comes out of the surface transportation industry. She is a vice president for the engineering firm HDR and co-vice chairman of the National Surface Transportation Policy and Revenue Study Commission. From 2001 to 2005, Peters was the head of the Federal Highway Administration. Peters is also a former head of the Arizona Department of Transportation. Peters worked in the administration of disgraced GOP Governor Fife Symington, who was convicted of bank fraud and resigned from office. (Symington was later pardoned by his college friend, President Bill Clinton).

Peters' commitment to major "infrastructure development" of the nation's highways centers on the development of the North American SuperCorridor (NASCO) highway, of which the Tran-Texas Corridor will be a major component. Already, Bush crime syndicate cronies, including interests tied to Texas Governor Rick Perry, are purchasing property along the proposed Texas highway route at cut-rate prices, using "eminent domain" statutes to pay less than what private and commercial property is worth. The money for the massive land grab is coming from Saudi and Chinese sources, according to knowledgeable sources in Texas.

....
Peters, as a highway and trucking industry shill, has been entrusted by the Bush crime cartel to ensure that the plans for NASCO and the Pan American Super Corridor proceed unimpeded. Madsen also learned that a million Texas will be effected, i.e., forced from their property, most in the state's rural heartland.

Legal clearance for the massive Texas land grab was bolstered by a remarkable June 2005 US Supreme Court decision solidifying developers' right to profit at the expense of responsible US homeowners. The court's 5-4 vote on Kelo v. New London effectively invalidated the longstanding "blighted property" clause in the "eminent domain" statue allowing government to only claim property for "pubic use." But the ruling removed any lingering doubt that local and state governments can forcible remove homeowners from their land for development, even if the property is well-maintained.

Conveniently, the high court's decision closely followed a March 2005 signing ceremony in Austin attended a beaming Mary Peters (below), Texas transportation officials and representatives of "a private consortium of firms known as Cintra-Zachry" headquartered in Spain given the contract to construct the TTC-35 corridor through Texas from Oklahoma to Mexico.

Advocates for Texans to be affected by the agreement opposed the manner in which the deal was reached and finalized. Here's how the Texas Farm Bureau characterized the deal to members in The Cornerpost, the organization's monthly newsletter:

Tolls, TTC bills filed in Texas legislature
March 11 was an eventful day in the state legislature regarding toll roads and the Trans Texas Corridor. Without advance public notice, and announced late on the last day for legislative bills to be filed without the Governor’s approval, Texas Department of Transportation officials joined by Governor Rick Perry and Federal Highway Administrator Mary Peters signed a 342-page agreement with Cintra Concesiones de Infrae-structuras de Transporte SA (Madrid, Spain) to create a master plan to finance and build the TTC-35 Trans Texas Corridor generally parallel to Interstate 35, from the Lower Rio Grande Valley to the Red River.

The move angered many opponents of the Trans Texas Corridor, who felt the action gave credence to the feeling many attending hearings expressed that their input was not taken seriously, that the meetings were merely a formality because the TTC “was already a done deal.”


In July, amid moutning resistance in Texas to the TTC-35 construction plan (see this blog's right margin, under "North American Union: Info on Texas Land Grab"), the White House fast-tracked the NAU. Key players tasked with implementing the plan (to include current administration officials named on a list of participants in a secret meeting in Alberta in mid-September), now are required to regularly report to three White House "ministers"--Secretary of State Condelezza Rice, Secretary of Homeland Defense Michael Chertoff and Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez.

With Peters' likely Senate confirmation as Transportation Secretary, she ostensibly will become the White House's theatrical lead for clearing obstructions to the construction project, which is slated to begin in 2007.

But Peters' performance(watch here) last week was decidely Bush League in answering Democratic Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor's question about her reported plans to implement a national toll system for new and existing interstate highways.

Though appropriate to the currently constituted Know-Nothing Senate, Peters could use more tutoring from Karl Rove in how to mask White House plans until implementation, the signature operatonal style of the Bush White House.

That skill is essential if voters make Democrats the Senate majority on November 7. If that should happen, Peters' "Mineta moment" of honesty of disclosing the intended double fleecing of American taxpayers/drivers could occasion rivival of that pre-9/11 congressional relic called "checks and balances" of White House executive power.

Texans and property owners in the other ten states to be impacted by the planned NASCO superhighway remember that far back?

Perhaps Canadians will be more successful in convincing their leaders to embrace their resistance when documents finally surface revealing plans the superhighway also will rip through the tundra and plains of their heartland.

Postscript: Former Special Forces US Army Sergeant Lauro "LJ" Chavez, a computer specialist until 2002 with the Army Central Command in Tampa, is claiming he participiated in unusual "Top Secret" military operations on 11 September 2001 he now believes served to mask the White House's stagged 9/11 attacks. (Michael C. Ruppert was the first to cite these operations in his book Crossing the Rubicon.)

An articulate speaker, Chavez told his remarkable account to internet radio host Alex Jones on September 25. Hear Jones' 30-minute interview here with Chavez, which begins roughly 22 minutes into Jones' audiocast. At the end of the interivew, Jones' claims Chavez's account of events on the morning of 11 September support Mineta's scrubbed testimony to the 9/11 Commission.
