These 14 US Senators give Republicans a bad name

by Ed Berry

EXB150Fr. John Zuhlsdorf published a report on the progress of the “Law of the Sea” Treaty (LOST) in our US Senate. As he points out, LOST would undermine U.S. sovereignty and give huge power over many spheres of America trade and security to the United Nations. President Reagan opposed LOST which is why the US has not yet signed it.

Now, the Democrats are pushing to ratify LOST.

According to Jake Walker in Redstate,

The Senate now taking the first step down the path toward another attempt at ratification. Led by Massachusetts Democrat Sen. John F. Kerry, it featured testimony from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, all of whom want the Senate to give its stamp of approval to LOST.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) raked Sec. of State Clinton over the coals. According the release:

Clinton came off as flustered and ill-informed, as it became clear to even the casual observer that the freshman Utah Republican had delved quite deeply into the treaty and its sovereignty implications, while she was captive to her talking points.

LOST would:

  • oblige USA to give proprietary information and technology to our economic competitors and enemies without control over how it is used;
  • allow the UN governing body, the International Seabed Authority (ISA), a Kingston, Jamaica, to redistribute our wealth to the “developing world” in the form of “royalties”, additional taxes imposed on US companies;
  • take away our sovereignty over our natural resources in our own waters;
  • restrict the US Navy’s and commercial ships to navigate where needed;
  • create a vast UN bureaucracy called the Enterprise to regulate and tax commerce on the high seas.
