It’s the latest moronic twist in the moronic North American Union conspiracy theory. And yes, I’m sad to say, we’ve already gotten credulous e-mails about it.

In an interview with CNBC, a vice president for a prominent London investment firm yesterday urged a move away from the dollar to the “amero,” a coming North American currency, he said, that “will have a big impact on everybody’s life, in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.”

Steve Previs, a vice president at Jefferies International Ltd., explained the Amero “is the proposed new currency for the North American Community which is being developed right now between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.”

The aim, he said, according to a transcript provided by CNBC to WND, is to make a “borderless community, much like the European Union, with the U.S. dollar, the Canadian dollar and the Mexican peso being replaced by the amero.”

Previs told the television audience many Canadians are “upset” about the amero. Most Americans outside of Texas largely are unaware of the amero or the plans to integrate North America, Previs observed, claiming many are just “putting their head in the sand” over the plans.

We wouldn’t want anyone to have their heads in the sand about the imminent collapse of American sovereignty. Go forth, then, and behold the amero conspiracy in its full, sinister flower!

And even if it’s true, look on the bright side — it’s got to be an improvement over the dollar, right?

Meanwhile, Jeb Bush is calling Tom “North American Union” Tancredo’s comments comparing Miami to a Third World country “disappointing” and “naive.”

Exit question: is the Trilateral Commission directly overseeing the development of the amero? Or is that a task they’ve farmed out to the Illuminati?
