Question LOST and Found: Senate Moves Toward Ratification of U.N.'s 'Law of the Sea Treaty'

LOST and Found: Senate Moves Toward Ratification of U.N.'s 'Law of the Sea Treaty'

By Joseph Abrams
FOXNews.com
Thursday, March 12, 2009

The Senate is gearing up to ratify a decades-old U.N. treaty that critics warn could create a massive U.N. bureaucracy that could even claim powers over American waterways.

The Senate is gearing up to ratify a Nixon-era U.N. treaty meant to create universal laws to govern the seas -- a treaty critics say will create a massive U.N. bureaucracy that could even claim powers over American waterways.

LOST -- the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea, also called the Law of the Sea Treaty -- regulates all things oceanic, from fishing rights, navigation lanes and environmental concerns to what lies beneath: the seabed's oil and mineral wealth that companies hope to explore and exploit in coming years.

But critics say the treaty, which declares the sea and its bounty the "universal heritage of mankind," would redistribute American profits and have a reach extending into rivers and streams all the way up the mighty Mississippi.

The U.N. began working on LOST in 1973, and 157 nations have signed on to the treaty since it was concluded in 1982. Yet it has been stuck in dry dock for nearly 30 years in the U.S. and never even been brought to a full vote before the Senate.

I believe the UN was just granted some natural resource powers a couple years ago.
The next article I ran into while searching for that information. Not sure if this has been posted on Avalon yet.

UN's Ban, Bill Clinton urge Haiti to seek recovery
03.09.09, 05:37 PM EST

By Patrick Worsnip

PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and former U.S. President Bill Clinton visited Haiti Monday and urged the Caribbean state to use international backing to haul itself out of grinding poverty.

Ban and Clinton are on a mission to promote an anti-poverty action plan for the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.

Speaking to students at an educational center, the U.N. chief said Haiti had a "window of opportunity" because of the presence of a U.N. peacekeeping mission on its soil and because of the country's tariff-free access to the U.S. market.

"This window of opportunity is not unlimited. It is very limited. You must seize this opportunity," (hmmmm) said Ban, who was due to meet later with President Rene Preval.

"That is why President Clinton and I are here personally to first of all demonstrate our solidarity and send a very strong message to the international community that we need Haiti to be able to emerge as a very stable, democratic and prosperous country in the region," he added.

Ok, here's 'The U.N. Convention to Combat Desertification' information.
The person posting links and comments above the article (http://www.iahf.com/usa/20001212.html) is a bit excited.
Going back in time to 2000!!!


US Senate Gives UN Control Over 70% Of World's Land Mass

By Henry Lamb
© 2000 WorldNetDaily.com
12-9-2000

There is no distinction between federal land and privately owned land when it comes to land use under the jurisdiction of the U.N. The U.N. sees its role to be the establishment of policy -- it is up to the participating nations to see that the policy is implemented.

The United States is now bound by the international law that claims the power to dictate land use in 70% of the earth's land.

New U.N. treaty ratified quietly. The U.N. Convention to Combat Desertification was ratified by the U.S. Senate on October 18, but few Senators yet know that it has been ratified. Senator Craig Thomas (R-WY) introduced a package of 34 treaties, all of which were ratified by a show of hands -- no recorded vote.

Initially, Senator Thomas' office told callers that the Senator had nothing to do with the ratification. On December 8, his office called to explain that Senator Thomas just happened to be on the Senate Floor late in the afternoon of October 18 -- and was asked by the leadership to handle procedurally, the package of treaties. Senator Thomas has asked the Foreign Relations Committee to explain how, and why, the Desertification Treaty was included in the package.

At the recent climate change talks in the Hague, Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) said the treaty had not been ratified, until corrected by one of his staff. Phone calls to Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN), and other Senators, caught staffers off guard: Nobody knew how their boss voted on the ratification. They could not know -- there was no recorded vote.

This treaty was signed by the Clinton administration in 1994. It has been locked up in the Foreign Relations Committee since. Normally, treaties of such monumental importance are debated in committee and then forwarded to the Senate floor for further debate and disposition.

Not this time. The treaty appeared in a package of 34 treaties -- most of which were single-issue treaties with single nations, dealing with stolen vehicles, criminals, and the like. The Desertification Treaty, however, is not a single-issue treaty with a single nation.

This treaty is one of several environmental treaties that emerged from the 1992 U.N. Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro. One of those treaties, the Convention on Climate Change, was ratified in 1992. The Convention on Biological Diversity failed ratification in 1994. The Convention to Combat Desertification was skillfully maneuvered through the Senate to avoid the public reaction which killed the Convention on Biological Diversity.

The Desertification Treaty claims jurisdiction over 70% of the earth's land area -- virtually all of the land that is not covered by the Convention on Biological Diversity. Moreover, this new treaty creates a structure through which all other environmental treaties are supposed to be integrated under a common United Nations implementation regime.

A companion treaty is now being developed by the U.N. Commission on Water for the 21st Century. The United Nations is, in fact, creating the structure in international law and, through its extensive bureaucracies, to control the use of all natural resources on earth.

UCC law or Law of the Sea can only be used against you with your personal Consent those that Grant it to them then are bound by the laws and Statutes that govern them. You are a human being not a person . A person is a fictitious entity so if you are fictitious then you are a person. You might say you are not a person you have a person and that person is the name on your Birth certificate that you notice in capital letters

Law of the Sea Treaty: Through Rose-colored Goggles?

WRITTEN BY KURT WILLIAMSEN
THURSDAY, 03 SEPTEMBER 2009

The Law of the Sea Treaty is designed in the same vein as every other international foreign aid program by the same brand of bureaucrat. It will result in the same failure. And the only “common heritage of mankind” that will be noticeable at the end of the day is that “while the rich get richer, the poor get poorer.”



September 14, 2009 ISSUE


On January 22, the Worldwatch Institute, a group having the goal of bringing the global community together to address climate change, environmental degradation, population growth, and poverty, approvingly said about the UN’s Convention on the Law of the Sea: “The Law of the Sea [Treaty] has set international standards for fishing, deep sea mining, and navigation since the majority of the world’s countries signed it in 1982. It provides coastal nations with exclusive rights to ocean resources within 200 nautical miles of their borders — areas known as ‘exclusive economic zones,’ or EEZs.” (Note: the treaty was initiated in 1982, but didn’t enter into force until 1994.)

“The agreement also oversees an international tribunal to settle fishing, pollution, and property rights disputes, as well as the International Seabed Authority, a body formed to assign mining rights beyond the EEZs.”

The institute went on to claim, “President Obama’s administration and current Senate leaders have already expressed support for the treaty ... [and] it is supported by a wide array of interest groups, including the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard, international environmental groups, and the mining, fishing, shipping, and telecommunications industries.”

But if the Law of the Sea Treaty is such a winner, why hasn’t the U.S. Senate ratified it before now? Do we have a case of politicians being grotesquely stupid, or a case of salesmanship by the Worldwatch Institute, or simply an evolving treaty?

Let us see.

Thank-you for posting this. These people are really sneaky...aren't they? Evil people need secrecy a lot more than good people. This amounts to the continued destruction of the U.S. Constitution and the United States...which amounts to the destruction of responsible freedom throughout the world.

Here are a couple of U.N. and Constitution related threads which have attracted very little interest thus far. I'm trying to change that.

1. United Nations Charter: http://projectavalon.net/forum/showt...ht=Shadow+moon
2. The United States of the Solar System: http://projectavalon.net/forum/showthread.php?t=15878

The basic idea is to replace the U.N. Charter with the U.S. Constitution. Is a theocracy really at the heart of the present United Nations? It may be very important to look at the big picture and ultimate power structure...regarding the United Nations. I'm not necessarily opposed to globalism. I'm not necessarily in favor of protectionism. I am never in favor of a theocracy. I am always in favor of Constitutional Responsible Freedom. What is the role of ET's in all of this? Is all of the above really a solar system issue? Are we looking through a microscope...when we should be looking through a telescope?

Other players: While the Secretary General of the United Nations receives instruments of ratification and accession and the UN provides support for meetings of states party to the Convention, the UN has no direct operational role in the implementation of the Convention. There is, however, a role played by organizations such as the International Maritime Organization, the International Whaling Commission, and the International Seabed Authority (the latter being established by the UN Convention).

In the old days, private vessel owners "owned" the sailors. Anyway.
_________________________________

Admiralty law (also referred to as maritime law) is a distinct body of law which governs maritime questions and offenses. It is a body of both domestic law governing maritime activities, and private international law governing the relationships between private entities which operate vessels on the oceans. It deals with matters including marine commerce, marine navigation, shipping, sailors, and the transportation of passengers and goods by sea. Admiralty law also covers many commercial activities, although land based or occurring wholly on land, that are maritime in character.

Admiralty law is distinguished from the Law of the Sea, which is a body of public international law dealing with navigational rights, mineral rights, jurisdiction over coastal waters and international law governing relationships between nations.

Said the "Economic Hit Men" to the fly.....

I hope their leaders are smarter than to allow the UN/IMF into their nest.

Perhaps we should send him a copy of "The Economic Hit Man".
