Posted on 06/17/2014 8:31:28 AM PDT by Citizen Zed
President Barack Obama plans to extend marine sanctuary protections over a vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean, limiting fishing, drilling and other commercial activities in a nautical area more than twice the size of Texas.
The Washington Post reports that the proposal will dramatically extend the borders of an existing marine sanctuary encompassing a cluster of remote Pacific islands. It will expand the protected area surrounding the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument from 87,000 square miles to 782,000 square miles, effectively doubling the area of the worlds protected oceans.

By whose authority?
Saving(Stealing) Sea and Land from the EVIL Oil and Gas People , is Obama up to 1000 Executive Orders yet
But when the seas fall due to his solving global warming, and creating a new ice age, these areas will all become land. What a conundrum!
OK Obama,you fixed that problem.Can you do something about Iraq?Or are you late for your next round of golf?
I declare bankrupcty!
So let it be written. So let it be done.
Exactly. I would like to see an explanation of how Obama claims the right to issue decrees affecting use of remote areas of the Pacific. Is there US territory somewhere inside this part of the Pacific? Is there US law allowing the President to create his own sanctuaries? I don't think so.
Next week he declaring Mars an energy free, carbon-dioxide free Planetary zone.
Will it prevent other countries from fishing or drilling in those areas? Will Obama dedicate our shrinking Navy to enforcing this fantasy against, say, China?
It is to prevent the Navy from patrolling the coastline. They are not allow in the ‘sanctuary’.
However the various Cartels panga boats will have unfettered access,because there will be no one around to observe them or stop them.
As long as the UN doesn’t have any say in it, I’m not too concerned.
Probably prohibiting US companies from drilling, fishing etc. but will be ok for China, Russian and Viet Nam to be there.
We have to understand that global warming is the primary threat to national security.
Oh, and the mission of NASA is outreach to muslims.
The photo shows a single plastic bottle floating in Santa Monica Bay. They missed the debris of dozens of Japanese cities and Indonesia towns and hundreds of thousands of people drowned from earthquake caused tsunami’s.
Caused by a benevolent mother nature.
The Pacific Remote Islands National Marine Monument was proclaimed a national monument on January 6, 2009 by U.S. President George W. Bush. The monument covers 77,020 square miles (199,500 km2), spanning areas to the far south and west of Hawaii: Kingman Reef, Palmyra Atoll, Howland Island, Baker Island, Jarvis Island, Johnston Atoll, and Wake Island.
Can you say “Megalomaniac?”
He hate us.
not easily, but I can say he is a deliberate traitor..this i not ignorance this is an inside attack
“As long as the UN doesnt have any say in it, Im not too concerned”.
Where do you think this comes from?
UN Agenda 21, Wildlands Project. Marine Protected Areas are the Marine Extension.
Sounds a lot like Imperialist Expansionism to me!
