dailycaller.com ^ | 6/17/2014 | Michael Bastasch

President Barack Obama announced new executive orders Tuesday to make huge swaths of the Pacific Ocean off limits to fishing, energy exploration and other economic activities.

The move would create the world’s largest marine sanctuary, and is part of a broader push to tackle global warming and halt offshore energy development. This effort will be led by Secretary of State John Kerry and White House adviser John Podesta.

Candidates running for president in 2016 need to say their first order of business is an executive order nullifying all of king Hussein’s executive orders. Let the thug know that they are not going to be law.

Obama’s new executive orders would expand the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument from 87,000 square miles to 782,000 square miles. All the waters being put off-limits would are located near U.S.-controlled islands and atolls, and the designation includes waters up to 200 nautical miles within U.S. holdings.

He’s building his secret lair to escape to once he leaves the WH. Pribaly right alongside Soro’s false volcano lair with the submarine docks. Doesn’t want anyone to accidentally stumble across it.

I predict that the ruling class elite will take him out soon.

As usual, their fingerprints will not be on it. It will almost certainly be a Timothy McVeigh-type patsy.

And Saint Obama's legacy as a martyr of racism will be cemented in history.

Located in the Mariana Archipelago east of the Philippines,the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument protects approximately 95,216 square miles of submerged lands and waters.

This unique place on Earth includes three units:
- the Islands Unit, the waters and submerged lands of the three northernmost Mariana Islands;
- the Volcanic Unit, the submerged lands within 1 nautical mile of 21 designated volcanic sites;
- and the Trench Unit, the submerged lands extending from the northern limit of the Exclusive Economic Zone of the United States in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) to the southern limit of the Exclusive Economic Zone of the United States in the Territory of Guam.

No waters are included in the Volcanic and Trench Units, and CNMI maintains all authority for managing the three islands within the Islands Unit (Farallon de Pajaros or Uracas, Maug, and Asuncion) above the mean low water line.

I think in the past when areas around the US have been made off limits to Americans it merely opens the doors for foreigners to come as no one will stop them or maybe the laws don’t apply to them.

Now you know where China is going to send their fishing trawlers.

First executive order needs to be a nullification of all previous executive orders the second their hand comes off that bible.

Since when does the USA own vast swaths of the Pacific Ocean?

I know Bush created a huge oceanic national park around the northern Hawaiian islands, which are mainly shoals and atolls. But we presumable ‘own’ this are of the ocean.

"That is freakin hilarious"

Especially if you consider that George Bush designated the trench a National Monument.

What Obama is doing here is asserting the 200 nautical mile Exclusive Economic Zone(EEZ).

With the Magnussan Act in the mid 70's, the US claimed the 200 nautical mile EEZ for the purpose of commercial fishing. Then, a few years later, the UN Law of the Sea Treaty granted a 200 nautical mile EEZ to all nations for all commercial purposes.

Reagan didn't sign LOST but he issued a proclamation asserting the US's right to the LOST 200 mile EEZ.

I would absolutely HATE to be on 0’s Secret Service security team and have to analyze all the threats, perceived threats, and rants they see on the Internet daily about this man. I bet the SS budget has exploded beyond imagination. I would hate it even worse if I realized they were well earned...: )
