Today's story has it all: money, power, socialism, national security, world government, oil -- even global warming -- and yet, no one in the media is talking about it. It all revolves around an international agreement called the "Law of the Sea," or the "LOST," treaty -- and even though we've been fighting it off since the days of Ronald Reagan, we're now closer than ever to ratifying it.
The politicians who want to rubber-stamp this through Congress tell people that it's harmless; that it just formalizes international laws that we've been following anyway (ok, so why do we need a treaty?) but the Real Story is that the only thing that will be LOST if this treaty is ratified will be more of our sovereignty.
Now, I realize that a ratings bonanza isn't usually the result of talking about the fine print in international treaties, so let's me just explain why any of this matters to you. International treaties are being used by the rest of the world as something called "lawfare." That basically means that our adversaries use all of these treaties and accords and conventions that we sign as a way to reduce our power in the world without ever putting a boot on the ground. This is as much a weapon as any gun or missile and it is basically a "natural gas war" -- it will kill you, but you'll never see it coming.
The Kyoto Treaty, which thankfully neither the Clinton OR Bush administrations ever ratified, is one example of that -- but so is something called "The Vienna Convention." Right now, the U.S. Supreme Court is trying to decide if that agreement supersedes our own laws on due process for foreign nationals. In essence, while these treaties may seem harmless, and we all love to play nicey-nice with the rest of the world, they can actually have more power than our own constitution! Which brings us back to the LOST treaty, and those pesky, boring details that no one wants to pay attention to. Here's a few of them:
First, this would give a U.N. related body control of over 70 percent of the world's surface.
Second, this agency would have the power to tax -- no, no, I'm sorry, the word "tax" is actually nowhere to be found...they get the power to levy fees and royalties on us and create a great new revenue stream for the socialist, America-hating U.N.
They also would get the power to settle disputes (which, if I may translate, means the power to set up a world court run by anti-American foreign judges). Actually, that kind of sounds a lot like the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.
This is really about socialism; the systematic redistribution of wealth; and usurping of your rights as a citizen of this country. One of the original creators of this treaty was a public supporter of one-world government; a woman who saw LOST as a trial balloon for developing a, quote "common global constitution."
America, this is not a joke -- we have to wake up now, the killers are inside the house. Our country and our sovereignty is being lost to socialists, globalists, elitists, and corporations -- and it's happening right in front of our eyes. We must stand up now and say enough.
