Law of the Sea Redux

Tags: , , , , ,

Editor’s Note: Pres­i­dent George Bush was the last pres­i­dent to attempt rat­i­fi­ca­tion of the Law of the Sea Treaty, but failed. LOST has been heavily lob­bied by mem­bers of the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion as a means to con­trol tax­a­tion on the high seas and the vast store of min­eral wealth under the seas. If enacted, America will essen­tially lose all of its sov­er­eignty over coastal waters and the high seas in general.]

Thirty states will be encroached upon by Obama’s Exec­u­tive Order estab­lishing the National Ocean Council for con­trol over America’s oceans, coast­lines and the Great Lakes. Under this new council, states’ coastal juris­dic­tions will be sub­ject to the United Nations’ Law Of Sea Treaty (LOST) in this UN Agenda 21 pro­gram. America’s oceans and coast­lines will be broken into 9 regions that include the North East, Mid-Atlantic, South Atlantic, the Gulf Coast, West Coast, the Great Lakes, Alaska, the Pacific Islands (including Hawaii) and the Caribbean.

Because of the decades of dif­fi­culty that the col­lec­tivists have had trying to ratify the Law Of Sea Treaty (LOST), Obama is sneaking it in through the back door, by way of this Exec­u­tive Order estab­lishing the Council. Because LOST is a treaty, Obama’s Exec­u­tive Order is not Con­sti­tu­tional as treaty rat­i­fi­ca­tion requires 2/3 approval from the Senate. Michael Shaw said that the Agenda 21 Con­ven­tion on Bio­di­ver­sity treaty of 1992 failed to pass Con­gress so it was exe­cuted through soft law and admin­is­tra­tively on local levels, and Obama’s Exec­u­tive Order is a sim­ilar soft law tactic to enact the LOST treaty.

In fact, our Con­sti­tu­tional form of gov­ern­ment is being com­pletely destroyed because buried in the CLEAR Act (HR 3534) there is a pro­vi­sion for a new council to oversee the outer con­ti­nental shelf– it appears that this Regional Outer Shelf Council will be part of the National Ocean Council. This means that if Con­gress makes the CLEAR Act into law, then the imple­men­ta­tion of the UN Law Of Sea Treaty, as part of the National Ocean Council’s agenda, will be “rat­i­fied” in a con­vo­luted and stealth manner, in full oppo­si­tion to the Con­sti­tu­tion and its intent.

The excuse for this extreme action is because of the emer­gency in the Gulf of Mexico. Obama and Con­gress have always had the legal and mil­i­tary power to force BP Oil to take all nec­es­sary action to stop the gusher and clean the oil spew. While there is evi­dence that the prob­lems in the Gulf have been a result of col­lu­sion and planned incom­pe­tence, it begs the ques­tion, why in world should America’s oceans and resources be con­trolled by Obama appointees?


John Hol­dren, Obama’s sci­ence and tech­nology adviser, is the co-chairman of this new council. He is also a depop­u­la­tion enthu­siast and advo­cates ster­il­iza­tion by way of using infer­tility drugs in water and food as well as forced abor­tions which he describes in his book “Eco­science”.

Ken Salazar, Sec­re­tary of the Depart­ment of Inte­rior, and its sub­agency, MMS (Min­erals Man­age­ment Ser­vice) has authority over off­shore drilling and respon­si­bility for enforcing spill pre­ven­tion mea­sures. The Depart­ment of Interior’s BLM (Bureau of Land Man­age­ment) is the entity that con­trols fed­er­ally man­aged land extending across 30% of America in 11 western states. Last week, Con­gressman Louie Gohmert said that Ken Salazar per­son­ally pre­vented drilling on land in Utah, Wyoming and Col­orado, thereby also pre­venting energy inde­pen­dence. In addi­tion, the fed­eral lands have been grossly mis­man­aged and present fire dan­gers. The fed­eral gov­ern­ment is $3.7 bil­lion in arrears for main­te­nance of the fed­er­ally man­aged lands.

US Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture Sec­re­tary Tom Vil­sack, by way of the US Forestry Ser­vice and US Fish & Wildlife Ser­vice, has been com­plicit in the decline of our country’s food inde­pen­dence. For example, US Fish & Wildlife (along with the Depart­ment of Com­merce) shut the water off in Cal­i­fornia using Endan­gered Species Act; it was later proven that par­tially treated sewage was the pri­mary cul­prit in killing the salmon and delta smelt that was pre­vi­ously blamed on farmers. This is phony envi­ron­men­talism. The US Forestry Ser­vice has also mis­used the Endan­gered Species Act to limit farmers and ranchers. Remember that the USDA co-owns the Ter­mi­nator Gene patent with Mon­santo that makes seeds sterile.

Lisa Jackson is the EPA admin­is­trator who has threat­ened to impose 18,000 pages of new reg­u­la­tions to curb global warming which is based on lies, claiming that carbon dioxide is a danger to human health.

Depart­ment of Defense Sec­re­tary Robert Gates and Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­rity Sec­re­tary Janet Napoli­tano: it is unclear how these two fed­eral appointees will enhance envi­ron­mental ‘sus­tain­ability’ over oceans and coasts. Tra­di­tion­ally, national secu­rity threats (like the War on Terror) have been used by the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to take con­trol of resources. For example, many years ago when the inter­state highway sys­tems were first being built, the Feds got in on the action by claiming that they were building a defense highway system, and they encroached into an area that belonged to the states. Inter­est­ingly, there were no over­head struc­tures on high­ways orig­i­nally because of the Feds’ claim that large mis­siles would be trans­ported on these “defense” highway systems.

Sec­re­tary of State Hilary Clinton, a leading glob­alist, is likely to plunge our country into inter­na­tional entan­gle­ments and sub­ju­ga­tion, based on her past per­for­mance; an example is her sup­port of the UN Small Arms Treaty, which is con­trary to the Constitution.

Depart­ment of Energy Sec­re­tary Steven Chu and Depart­ment of Com­merce Sec­re­tary Gary Locke are log­ical choices for this destruc­tive council as some of the planned funding for this pro­gram will come from per­mits and leases (oil drilling leases, for example). These agen­cies will limit America’s energy independence.

Agenda 21 Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment is the over­ar­ching blue­print for depop­u­la­tion and total con­trol, and the National Ocean Council is clearly an Agenda 21 program:

The National Ocean Council is headed by John Hol­dren, an avowed eugeni­cist which is selec­tive breeding through brutal means like forced abortion.

The National Ocean Counci’s own report (Coastal and Marine Spa­tial Plan­ning, pg. 8) incor­po­rates a sec­tion of the 1992 Rio Dec­la­ra­tion which is an orig­inal UN Agenda 21 document!

In fact, the report says that it will be guided by the Rio Dec­la­ra­tion in cases “Where there are threats of serious or irre­versible damage, lack of full sci­en­tific cer­tainty shall not be used as a reason for post­poning cost-effective mea­sures to pre­vent envi­ron­mental degra­da­tion.” (pg. 8) This means that reg­u­la­tions will be imposed even if the sci­ence is not under­stood or if the sci­ence is based on global warming manip­u­lated data.

The 3 pri­mary tools of Agenda 21’s phony envi­ron­men­talism are global warming, water short­ages and the Endan­gered Species Act; the National Ocean Council intends to exploit all of these tools to their full extent.

1-lostThe National Ocean Council’s main objec­tive is to sink Amer­ican sov­er­eignty through the United Nations Law Of Sea Treaty (LOST) with the intended result of dom­i­na­tion by the UN over our coasts and the Great Lakes. LOST orig­i­nated in the 1970s as a wealth redis­tri­b­u­tion plan to ben­efit Third World coun­tries. LOST sets rules for com­mer­cial activity beneath the high seas and estab­lishes new inter­na­tional bureau­cra­cies and a tri­bunal to inter­pret and apply rules to sea activity. And LOST can pro­ceed with those rules, even against US objec­tions! LOST threatens to com­pli­cate deep sea mining. LOST sets a prece­dent that US rights are depen­dent upon the approval of inter­na­tional enti­ties. LOST also extends to ocean flowing rivers.


Michael Shaw pointed out that non-elected coun­cils are increas­ingly expanding their juris­dic­tion through air quality boards, water quality boards, sewer sys­tems, trans­porta­tion dis­tricts, met­ro­pol­itan plan­ning, etc. to gain con­trol over resources. Often, large cor­po­ra­tions and finan­cial inter­ests form Public– Pri­vate Part­ner­ships with the gov­ern­ment within these councils.

Breaking areas into regions and placing authority with non-elected coun­cils is a Com­mu­nist trick used to hijack resources, thereby usurping local and state power by re-zoning the areas that do have Con­sti­tu­tional authority. Appointed bureau­crats are untouch­able because their jobs are not depen­dent upon serving the voting pop­u­la­tion. And they are usu­ally inac­ces­sible to the public and do not have to face those who are affected by their “insider” deci­sions. When state and local gov­ern­ments become cor­rupt, the public is able to con­front them eye to eye, but dis­tant bureau­crats can avoid account­ability. Region­alism is used as a psy­cho­log­ical tactic to intim­i­date state leg­is­la­tures into cre­ating the system for a new polit­ical and eco­nomic order.

Obama’s Exec­u­tive Order that has cre­ated the 9 new regions amounts to re-zoning, and his appointed bureau­crats are answer­able only to him. In David Horton’s tes­ti­mony in 1978 on region­alism, he said that the State of Indiana made this dec­la­ra­tion, “Nei­ther the states nor Con­gress have ever granted authority to any branch or agency of the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to exer­cise regional con­trol over the states.” Horton fur­ther stated that Con­gress holds all leg­isla­tive power that is granted in the Con­sti­tu­tion, as opposed to Exec­u­tive Orders that are not leg­isla­tive. There­fore, Obama’s Exec­u­tive Order for re-zoning and appointing a gov­erning body to usurp state and local power is Con­sti­tu­tion­ally invalid.

The public must become aware of state sov­er­eignty and the Tenth Amend­ment to demand that state and local gov­ern­ments assert these Con­sti­tu­tional laws and principles.


This is a gen­eral overview of the new National Ocean Council’s goals based on its 32-page report that uses indi­rect lan­guage and acronyms in order to con­fuse the public and local law­makers. Depop­u­la­tion advo­cates, glob­al­ists and col­lec­tivists, like John Hol­dren, faced oppo­si­tion a few decades ago when they clearly expressed their objec­tives, so now doc­u­ments are written in com­pli­cated and clouded lan­guage to fool those they wish to control.

This report states that the Council’s juris­dic­tion will extend from the con­ti­nental shelf to the coast AND addi­tional inland areas will be involved. The National Ocean Council iden­ti­fies “part­ners” as mem­bers of each regional plan­ning body that will include fed­eral, state, local and tribal author­i­ties, with a top-down hier­archy of control.

The inten­tions of the Council are stated on page 8 of the report that include imple­menting LOST and other inter­na­tional treaties.  The report also states that the Counci’s plans shall be imple­mented by Exec­u­tive Orders, in addi­tion to fed­eral and state laws.  This sec­tion men­tions ‘global cli­mate change’ which is a new term used as a sub­sti­tute for ‘man made global warming’ after manip­u­lated data and lies were exposed in numerous global warming scan­dals.  ‘Cli­mate change’ is blamed for sea level rise and acid­i­fi­ca­tion of oceans; evi­dence exists that these are more global warming deceptions.

The stated goals of the Council include reg­u­lating invest­ments, col­lab­o­rating with uniden­ti­fied inter­na­tional agen­cies, con­trol­ling public access to oceans and “pro­tecting” ecosys­tems. This means that com­merce and trade will be con­trolled by the Council, the UN will gain power over Amer­ican oceans and the Great Lakes through UN sub­agen­cies, public access will be lim­ited and the Endan­gered Species Act will be unleashed, with heavy reg­u­la­tions. Inci­den­tally, the Endan­gered Species Act is based on 5 inter­na­tional treaties. It has never had a suc­cessful result: of the 60 species that have been de-listed, not a single species was saved as a result of any restric­tions stem­ming from the Endan­gered Species Act!

The tar­geted areas for Endan­gered Species Act reg­u­la­tions are the the Great Lakes, the Gulf Coast, Chesa­peake Bay, Puget Sound, South Florida and the San Fran­cisco Bay (the Bay Delta is where the irri­ga­tion water for farmers was was cut off using the Endan­gered Species Act, causing food short­ages, an increase in food imports and mas­sive eco­nomic devastation).

While this report does not clearly out­line how the National Ocean Council’s schemes will be financed, reg­u­la­tory per­mits for all activity on the water and mining (oil) leases will play a part, along with tax increases. The report does indi­cate that grants and assis­tance pro­grams will be avail­able so that state, local and tribal author­i­ties will sup­port the Council’s “efforts”. In other words, the Council will try to buy off the state and local gov­ern­ments to “col­lec­tively use” them for a base of sup­port and influ­ence. (pg. 28) Strings are always attached to fed­eral money. The fed­eral gov­ern­ment and the Council are reliant on state and local gov­ern­ments for imple­men­ta­tion through state and local legal authority, which means that state and local author­i­ties hold the power to imple­ment or refuse the Council’s direc­tives, espe­cially under the Tenth Amendment.

How­ever, the report does state that dis­putes will be set­tled by con­sensus, if con­sensus fails, then the deci­sions will ulti­mately be made by the Pres­i­dent. He is Com­mander in Chief of the Navy and has the power of the mil­i­tary behind him. Fur­ther, the report indi­cates that leg­isla­tive changes and more Exec­u­tive Orders may be nec­es­sary to achieve control.

An impor­tant point is made on page 5, which states, “Strong part­ner­ships among Fed­eral, State, tribal and local author­i­ties, and regional gov­er­nance struc­tures would be essen­tial to a truly forward-looking, com­pre­hen­sive CMSP effort.” This means that the states, local gov­ern­ments and tribes have power. Our col­lec­tivist gov­ern­ment needs the con­sent of the state, local and tribal author­i­ties, to imple­ment this scheme, oth­er­wise, the feds wouldn’t bother to include these Con­sti­tu­tional author­i­ties. If the state, local and tribal author­i­ties are aware of, and willing to act on their Con­sti­tu­tional authority, then they can limit this fed­eral power grab through the Tenth Amendment.

The report fur­ther states that signing onto the Council’s plan would be an “express com­mit­ment by the part­ners to act in accor­dance with the plan…” (pg. 20) There­fore, it is imper­a­tive that all of the states be aware of the Council’s intended usurpa­tion and care­fully pro­tect their Con­sti­tu­tional juris­dic­tions and sov­er­eignty. There are 30 states that will be affected by this new council. (pg. 12)

The Council’s strategy plan will go into effect imme­di­ately, fully devel­oping Agenda 21 objec­tives and undue UN influ­ence within 5 years. Inter­est­ingly, one article said that if state, local and tribal author­i­ties choose not to par­tic­i­pate in in writing the plans, the plans would be written without them. There­fore, it bears repeating that state and local gov­ern­ments must pro­tect their Con­sti­tu­tional authority when dealing with the Council. The Con­sti­tu­tional authority that states and local gov­ern­ments have can only be taken if the power is given away.

What is Technocracy?

Tech­noc­racy is a move­ment started in the 1930’s by engi­neers, sci­en­tists and tech­ni­cians that pro­posed the replace­ment of cap­i­talism with an energy-based economy. Orig­i­nally envi­sioned for North America only, it is now being applied on a global basis. Authors Aldous Huxley and George Orwell believed that Tech­noc­racy would result in a Sci­en­tific Dic­ta­tor­ship, as reflected in their books, “Brave New World” and “1984″.
