Obama Administration Renews Push to Ratify Law of Sea Treaty
Conservative Daily News ^ | May 11, 2012 | Michael J. Fell

The Obama administration has initiated a renewed push to convince the U.S. Senate to approve the 1982 United Nations Law of the Sea treaty. Administration officials claim approval of the pact is necessary to protect the U.S. Navy’s right to carry out exercises off the coast of China. In the past Chinese ships have harassed U.S. vessels.

<snip>

Ratification of the treaty has long been blocked due to congressional concerns that the treaty gives the UN far too much control over American oil and mineral rights while threatening U.S. sovereignty. Treaty opponents contend that China will not to change its maritime claims even if the treaty is ratified.

In the interest of national security and sovereignty, the United States should withdraw from the UN, stop paying all dues to what’s become an Islamofascist/Communist criminal organization, and expel them from American shores permanently.

I'm sure this is absolutely fine with Barack, whether he admits it, or not.

This is typical of this type of President.

They hide behind supra national institutions that they can point the finger at, this takes the onus off them for any action. It’s all about spreading around the risk and responsibility, politically.

Oh this is his job.  His self appointed job of destroying the sovereignty of the United States of America in order to establish a global socialist regime, whereupon implementation of his corrupt vision of  justice would begin.

No no.  This is way beyond that.  This is an attempt at replacing  American sovereignty with international law.

Related article by Dick Morris sounding alarms, vote is coming up in the Senate next month. He said in a Hannity interview, they pushed the vote back to June so as not to hurt Lugar’s chances before his election.
