Obama Seeks Sovereignty Surrender Via LOST Treaty
Townhall.com ^ | May 8, 2012

Sovereignty: Even if he's not re-elected, the president hopes to leave behind a treaty giving a U.N. body veto power over the use of our territorial waters and to which we'd be required to give half of our offshore oil revenue.

The Law Of The Sea Treaty (LOST) has been lurking in the shadows for decades. Like the Kyoto Protocol that pretended to be an effort to save the earth from the poisoned fruit of the Industrial Revolution, LOST pretends to be an effort to protect the world's oceans from environmental damage and remove it as a cause of potential conflicts between nations.

Like its Kyoto cousin, LOST is an attempt at the global redistribution of power and wealth, the embodiment of the progressive dream of the end of the nation state as we know it and the end of political freedom by giving veto over all of mankind's activities to a global body — in this case something called the International Seabed Authority, located in Kingston, Jamaica.

The ISA would have the power to regulate 70% of the earth's surface, placing seabed mining, fishing rights, deep-sea oil exploration and even the activities of the U.S. Navy under control of a global bureaucracy. It even provides for a global tax that would be paid directly to the ISA by companies seeking to develop the resources in and under the world's oceans.

As Heritage Foundation senior fellow Peter Brookes notes, the U.S. government now can collect royalty revenues from oil and gas companies that wish to drill on our extended continental shelf — the undersea areas beyond 200 miles of our coast. But if we ratify LOST, we'd have to fork over as much as 7% of that revenue to the ISA for redistribution to poorer, landlocked countries

Bush pushed this also, hard,, our government wants this bad. And it’s not just the sea. It even does things like regulate farmers in Iowa,, because their fertilizer runoff goes into a river, which empties into the sea.
The establishment loves this ,,,

Is there someway we could rid the country of politicians in general, and liberals in particular?

Myself as a fishing and diving charter boat captain operating my own boat, this scares the bejesus out of me.

Where is Romney on this issue?
Are our senators ready and willing to ratify this?
If it gets ratified can it be undone?

This is an election year. The Senate won’t even think about it. I also doubt the GOP will allow its ranks to bring it to the floor.

I heard this was on fast track. Lugar, defeated in Indiana tonight, is supportive. Can this be stopped?

This was Jimmy Carter’s wet dream, and the acronym, LOST, fit him to a T. It didn’t pass then, and when some diplomat presented it to Reagan after the inauguration, he promptly walked to a waste basket and, pronouncing it D.O.A., shit-canned it.

The left never sleeps, and it says much about their infiltration of the military that admirals could be found at the drop of a hat to appear before senate hearings to promote passage every time it resurfaced.

Make no mistake, no matter what happens now, if this fails again, it will be back in a few years. The fight against this abomination will continue for another 30 years, at least.

I wish I could agree with you...

...but then I think of all the cr@p the Senate passed after the 2010 shellacking, during the “lame-duck” session

including gays in the military and the farm bill

(Art.)

Anything to hurt us, eh, you Communist s.o.b.? You must really hate white people!

Filibuster it (in between trying the impeached AG Holder over Fast & Furious) this year, and then next year, when the GOP has the majority, bring it to a vote and spike it in the NWO's faces -- and Obozo's if he's still in the White Hut.

If Romney wins in November, his agenda item No.1 for January ought to be throwing out all of Obama's carpets and burning them on the lawn -- it'd take six weeks of vacuuming them to get all the coke dust out of them.

And give away the Obama china, or break it at the curb on Pennsylvania Avenue, along with the Clinton china.

And get rid of the damned "Kennedy desk" -- I'm tired of hearing about it!!

Are we, The United States of America, some pawn for those in power to play with as they see fit or are we, “THE PEOPLE”, the ones in charge?

It is high time to kick their sorry asses off our shores and never allow them back in. I applaude with gusto what then Pres. Regan did..Shit-can it!
