Skip to comments.US House puts oceans, coasts under UN: Senate vote will seal the deal

Piece by piece, America being given away
Its too late; itll just have to be stopped in the Senate, Tom, the young male answering the phone in U.S. Rep. John Boehners (R-Ohio)Washington D.C. office, said about HR 3534 (CLEAR Act). This is the globalist bill designed to give away our land, oceans, adjacent land masses and Great Lakes to an international body, and makes us pay $900 million per year until 2040.
HR 3534 is a thinly disguised permanent roadblock to American energy which drives American companies out of the Gulf, delays future drilling, increases dependency on foreign oil, implements climate change legislation and youth education programs; but most important, it mandates membership in the Law of the Sea Treaty without the required two-thirds vote to ratify it in the U.S. Senate.
The House passed the CLEAR Act (HR 3534) 209-193, July 30, 2010. This bill was originally introduced July 8, 2009, but was resurrected by the recent Deep Water Horizon oil spill crisis. According to www.govtrack.us, a debate may be taking place on a companion bill in the Senate, rather than on this particular bill. This bill was read for the second time Aug. 4, 2010, and placed on the Senate Legislative Calendar under General Orders, Calendar No. 510. No official Senate Bill number exists as of yet.

Looks like we’ll need the GOP to filibuster this one as well.
Is it time for a military coup yet?
This seems to have slipped under the radar. We should have heard the Republicans opposing this loud and clear. It certainly should have been loud enough for the U. S. public to pick up on and speak out against.
Have others been aware of this? Am I the only one to not have heard of it?
If those in DC are voting to give up our coastlines to the UN, it is indeed time to head up there with far more than pitchforks.
Found it yesterday on the Intel Hub, but today they are tweeting about it.
This is outrageous
Only took them 30 years !
I remember when Reagan shot it down.
Lesson in paying attention, these people never give up.
Caqllme cynical but where in the bill does it grant control to the UN?
0bama and the (D)istrict of (C)riminals are not the problem. It’s the abundance of morons that we have in this country who gave them the keys.
All debts contracted and engagements entered into, before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
The last days of any congressional term are always the most dangerous. We must be more vigilant than ever!
which drives American companies out of the Gulf, delays future drilling, increases dependency on foreign oil,
Those aren't "American" companies, they're "global" companies anyway.
And besides, if Boehner was really serious about reducing our dependence on foreign Oil,
he'd support efforts to upgrade our passenger-rail infrastructure which is much more energy efficient than either airline or highway travel.
I’m a little slow. Can you point out the verbiage in the bill that puts our coasts under the control of the UN? TIA
Uh yeah lets find a 19th century solution to our problems Troll.
Oh good Lord.
So a train full of people taking a week to cross the country is more efficient then a 4 hour flight?
If rail travel were more efficient, it would be cheaper. Which it is not.
What is needed is the removal of government impediments to energy development, not more government distortions of the market.
For the moment - please open the link and read the info - I will look to see if I can find the exact language in the bill.
We don't take cars or planes because they are "energy efficient", we take them because they give us more FREEDOM.
Keep the American people distracted while covertly slipping legislation, regulation, treaties into place.
Think about it...ewww ewww, Avian flu, West Nile, H1N1, Climate change, global warming/cooling, The Kenyan, Terror plot this...terror plot that, Global financial meltdown...stimulus stimulus stimulus debt debt debt, Chicoms are coming, The Russians are coming, Saddam Hussiens coming, Amadinajads coming, on and on and on.
All the while, quietly making these global NWO pacts and treaties that erode American soveigntry.
I dunno, just sayin...
Slipped under the radar hell. We work for a living. How could we possibly keep up with all the subterfuge that is taking place in the government?
We knew about this but didn’t know they were going to vote on it. Would it have mattered anyway? We were focused on the spinate and the despicable dream act and repeal of don’t ask don’t tell. A telephone campaign can only accomplish so much and be done only so often especially when we aren’t be represented but instead being dictated to.
What I can’t get over is that we are paying these sons-of-bitches to do these things to us and are powerless to stop it any more often than in two year cycles. Armored dozers keep popping up in my mind. Not for the capitol but for the house and spinate office buildings and a bunch of cars and that damn tunnel and little subway train they ride around on. We should not make the same mistakes the guy in Granby, Colorado did. It would be a one way trip but worth the effort.
The reason it slipped under the radar is that the Republicans work for the International Bankers just like the Democrats.
Boxcar Willie, at it again. Rah, Rah AMTRAK!
Now, crawl back under your rock with all the other Trolls.
Just wait until Sharia Law is passed as our freedoms are sold off peace meal to those we can’t repay our national debt to.
Joe McCarthy is golden...
My going in presumption is that any new law will be another attack on my liberties, and that Congress has to prove me wrong before I will go along with it.
Sure, why let reality stand in the way of a good UN conspiracy theory?
Cars and jets go to a lot of place trains cannot. Trains are only useful in densly populated area. Almost all of Amtrak is FEDERALLY SUBSIDIZED, the only profitable area is the Northeast Corridor. If America is serious about energy independence, and our survival depends on that, see my tagline.
This entire Congress & White House should be tried for treason.
Yeah, this is just what we need. :::sarc tag in case it is needed:::
Why not just use the nearly 300 year supply of oil we have inside the Continental US? No need to drill in the oceans, we have every drop we need for at least the next two and a half centuries (plenty of time to get a nuclear-based infrastructure going)...
And if YOU were serious about saving oil (rather than using what we have), you'd get off your dumb train kick and push vanpools (micro-transit) and hybrids, both of which are MUCH more fuel efficient than trains.
How about it, Willie? You want to stop using foreign oil? Then how about pushing to use the oil we have here (we have plenty, at costs lower than what we pay today), and pushing to reduce our consumption by using the lowest consumption solutions (vanpools and hybrids)?
One helluva lot of Americans who prefer personal freedom and mobility over being herded into government subsidized boxcars that only go places they don't want to go.
They never give up because we don’t write legislation to keep them from trying again. If Reagan shot it down, why didn’t the Republicans do something about it when they were in power? Knuckleheads.
When are our politicians going to get aggressive to protect this nation from the enemies within? Our enemies should have a little voice to remind of what this nation was built on because they want to take it away and that is all! The meek will inherit the earth after the Lord returns, not now!
You’re not alone. I heard a little blurb about it a while back and then poof...nothing.
Hope this gets the attention it needs. I know I’ll do my part to get it out there.
This is why I say there is no reason to believe that we keep our dominance in the world. These commies/elites will NEVER stop until we become a turd world nation & we have NOBODY to stand up & fight the battles for us since this corrupt "Two-Party Cartel" is owned by those bastards.
Look, if my lawmakers can't be bothered, why should I?
The .pdf of the bill is 282 pages.
If you read it all, why don't you allay the fears of those who haven't?
govtrack is down. I guess too many freepers took your suggestion. :)
We shall not win if we do not fight.
“America and Undeservedness”
OK, the UN isn't mentioned anywhere in it. How's that for a start?
We are the militia. We are sitting on our hands, while our treasure and our very means of existing are being taken from us. And we tell ourselves that soon a Republican (or a wave of them) will come and save us; will turn back the clock, resetting America to a free economy and some basic fear of the Lord.
People under siege always holler that the enemy has come for their guns. But the enemy comes for our spirits.
And they come for the minds of our children; and for our food and water, after which our spirits are somewhat easier pickings.
So I don't scan the hill, looking for the cavalry here.
This is from the website FamilySecurityMatters.org, and is in line with what I know about the treaty:
By asserting UN authority over seven-tenths of the Earth's surface, LOST would be the largest territorial conquest in history.
In principle, the treaty would assert UN jurisdiction over U.S. territorial waters, and eventually over waterways within our country.
It would create a huge bureaucratic entity called the "Enterprise," which would regulate and tax all commercial uses of the high seas.
By taxing all efforts to develop the wealth of the seabed, the UN would be given a huge revenue stream, independent of national governments to push its agenda for international socialism.
The treaty would require the redistribution of cutting-edge technology from the U.S. to all governments in the "developing world," including extremely repressive governments.
This is not out of line with what I know about the treaty. We need to find out how this HR3534 will dovetail with the LOST treaty, because we know ALL liberals and many Republicans have a hard-on for that treaty.
These are PERILOUS times, folks, and it is not melodramatic to say so.
You mean like this from the article?
The Interim Report states that the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force includes adherence to the Law of the Sea Treaty (page 14). Its purpose is to establish a comprehensive set of rules governing the oceans. The Law of the Sea Treaty calls for technology transfers and wealth transfers from developed to undeveloped nations, and requires parties to the treaty to adopt regulations and laws to control pollution of the marine environment all under the authority of the United Nations. Such provisions were among the reasons President Ronald Reagan rejected the treaty in 1982. As Edwin Meese, U.S. Attorney General under President Reagan explained recently, it was out of step with the concepts of economic liberty and free enterprise that Ronald Reagan was to inspire throughout the world.
This Interim Report will provide a recommended framework for coastal and marine spatial planning and addresses conservation, economic activity, user conflicts and sustainable use as well as social justice. Previously, there was no money for National Marine Fisheries Service to implement its mandates and to update its fisheries data collection system. But now with the international flavor, $900 million a year will be dedicated to a global approach to our land, oceans, coastal areas and Great Lakes. R
