Thread: So now we are giving control of US waters to the UN?!!!

  1. #1

    Default So now we are giving control of US waters to the UN?!!!

    BREAKING NEWS: US House puts oceans, coasts under UN: Senate vote will seal the deal (No, our fishing/hunting rights are not being threatened...just taxed to "redistribute" resources to poorer countries!)

    The story is long, but well worth reading. You should be shocked into taking action by calling your senators. Forward this to your friends. Even non-coastal states should weigh in as they are certainly affected. READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE AT http://www.boogai.net/top-story/brea...seal-the-deal/

    This is only a senate vote away from becoming LAW!
    If you prefer the actual bill, just Google "HR 3534 vote"

    Below are some excerpts from the article:

    All air space above the oceans, what operates in, through, on or is derived from underneath the water, will be subject to taxes as a world resource to the United Nations – Agenda 21. These areas will no longer be owned and managed solely by the United States, as they are newly defined as a global revenue, “social justice” source per the Law of the Sea Treaty.

    The Consolidated Land, Energy, Aquatic Restoration Act of 2009 (aka: CLEAR Act, HR 3534) gives away ownership of America’s oceans to the United Nations, and sectors America into nine geographic areas. This bill possesses a cap and trade/climate change component as well.

    America will be forced to become a member of the UN Law of the Sea Treaty (aka: LOST), circumventing the normal two-thirds U.S. Senate vote necessary for ratification of any treaty.

    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.

    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.

    …current management of our oceans within the United States will be superseded by the National Ocean Council, comprised of some of the most radical environmentalists in our Administration, co-chaired by Nancy Sutley, White House Council on Environmental Quality and Dr. John P. Holdren, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

    All air space above the oceans, what operates in, through, on or is derived from underneath the water, will be subject to taxes as a world resource to the United Nations – Agenda 21. These areas will no longer be owned and managed solely by the United States, as they are newly defined as a global revenue, “social justice” source per the Law of the Sea Treaty.

    How is it paranoid if it is in the bill? And how is it paranoid when it's already passed the house and waiting on a senate vote? and how is it paranoid that the president signed an executive order in July giving control of the Great Lakes to the federal government...so the federal government can "share" with the UN?

    Why would anyone in the US want UN control of anything? The UN should be thrown out of the US and the US should get the heck out of that crazy place!

    I worked at the U.S. State Dept. right out of college, and I was a U.S. delegate to the U.N. Conference on the Law of the Sea when the final version of the treaty was negotiated and adopted in the early 1980s. The very one the U.S. rightfully refused to be a party to. Let me tell you, there are literally thousands of U.N. bureaucrats who've spent decades on this boondoggle, creating another uber-global agency full of plum jobs in plum spots for the many good folks who wear the title diplomat but would do anything to escape the squalor and ever-multiplying masses of their own countries south of the equator.

    The UN LOS is nothing but a massive global wealth transfer of U.S. money, technology, intellectual property rights and more. It's the biggest giveaway since the Panama Canal. I've already written to my congressional delegation and urge everyone to do the same. Why am I not surprised all the global pimps in this administration are pushing for it?

    One of the treaty provisions sets up a tribunal (I believe Jamaica was the chosen nation) to oversee all deep sea mining. For any company or country to apply, it must have two projects ready to rock n roll--one for itself and a second one, before the application can get approved. Then the U.N. tribunal will pick the one the filthy capitalist country putting up the money, technology and talent will run, while the other will be graned to some deserving, intelligently-run nation like Haiti or Uganda. (Hell, Uganda wants a space program, why not deep sea mining?) There's more, it's been awhile but it's an outrageous, steaming crock of jenkem for any developed country, not just the U.S. Most of the OK stuff the LOS codified was already accepted international law, not something that needed a bureaucracy of tens of thousands more diplomats from south of the equator. All of Africa's a party to it, and look at how piracy has expanded exponentially. Just another example of the U.N. at work.

    fishdog - you have to understand that buzz is a liberal. liberals think that everyone should just sit around and sing kumbaya together and share everything. its all about spreading wealth and apologizing for our successes and excesses.

    although i love the song and the concept as a dream, liberals truly think john lennons "Imagine" is attainable in reality on a worldwide scale.

    they are incapable of understanding that if we let out guard down and love everybody that states like China and N Korea and Iran and Venezuela and Russia will punch us right in the face. they have no ability to understand how grave things will be if we let them attain world power status. they truly believe we can and should just all get along.

    now think back 2 yrs ago during The Half Muslim Apologist's campaign - he just thought all we had to do was sit down with the likes of Iran and terrorists and talk - remember?

    and how far has that gotten us?

    so to oppose these types of utopian ideas means you are a paranoid right wing fanatic.
