Obama’s Land of the LOST

Pages: 1 2

What’s green and blue and grabby all over? President Obama’s new pressure campaign for Congress to ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST).

The fight over LOST goes back three decades, when it was first rejected by President Ronald Reagan. He warned that “no national interest of the United States could justify handing sovereign control of two-thirds of the Earth’s surface over to the Third World.” According to top Reagan officials William Clark and Ed Meese, their boss believed the “central, and abiding, defect” was “its effort to promote global government at the expense of sovereign nation states — and most especially the United States.”

The persistent transnationalists who drafted LOST favor creation of a massive United Nations bureaucracy that would draw ocean boundaries, impose environmental regulations and restrict business on the high seas. They’ve tinkered with the document obsessively since the late ’60s, enlisted Presidents Clinton and Bush, and recruited soon-to-depart GOP Sen. Dick Lugar to their crusade. Ignore the mushy save-the-planet rhetoric. Here’s the bottom line: Crucial national security decisions about our naval and drilling operations would be subject to the vote of 162 other signatories, including Cuba, China and Russia.

While our sovereignty would be redistributed around the world, most of the funding for the massive LOST regulatory body would come from — you guessed it! — the United States. Forbes columnist Larry Bell reports that “as much as 7 percent of U.S. government revenue that is collected from oil and gas companies operating off our coast” would be meted out to “poorer, landlocked countries.” This confiscatory act of environmental justice would siphon billions, if not trillions, away from Americans. International royalties would be imposed; an international tribunal would be set up to mediate disputes.

There would be no opportunity for court appeals in the U.S.

    Lost will leave America adrift at sea.
    Liberalism, their socialism, as with Islam, pursue a one world order with them, naturally, at the top and in controll.
    Keep America sovereign, love and respect our American culture of liberty, wealth and the pursuit of happiness.
    One and done! Nobama 2012, vote republican. Thank you.

    Cannot people see what this man is? He is not a US citizen as we think of a US Citizen; and it has NOTHING to do with his birth certificate. BHO looks at every issue through global vision. His main failing is that he is a citizen of the world and that is how he governs. The wealth and natural resources of US, England, Canada, etc. should be shared equally with the backward third world nations. No wonder he surrounds himself with the Van Jones and other "Give them the wealth" Marxists. BHO was not raised in any "place." He has no since of place nor home. He just happened to be born in Hawaii. But he holds no allegiance, none.

      When will he "redistribute" the phoniest Nobel prize money he anyone ever received, short of the prize given to Yassir Arafat, a first rate Terrorist who sole contribution to the world was to have been the Inventor of Airplane Hijacking? Obama is a Walking Disaster for not only America, but for Western Security in general. If he is not removed in the next election, Americans can only blame themselves for what will probably ensue. And what will that be? Probably a lacerated economy and the evisceration of the U.S. Constitution. He has no use for the Constitution, it just seems to "get in the way" of his grander Emporial visions for America. This man needs to be FIRED…A.S.A.P. for his near total Incompetence.

      The Left is also pushing the Small Arms treat for America, and the U.N. to control the internet. You can see that they are pushing toward finality and that no matter who gets elected it will be too late..they will not recognize the Supreme court, or the Will of the voters…same push in Egypt to get the Muslim Brotherhood elected….and also in Tampa Florida they are working to re-elect Obama..Sinister forces are at work and everyone had better get active and engaged in taking back their country.

    The legacy of Obama will be heard throughout America, it will be a call to throw off the
    chains of Marxist control, free America from tyranny, in short revolution. Americans are
    sick and tired of being sold out by the ever growing demands of useless slugs that
    are proffered yearly by a Marxist media as who should be in the lead of our Nation.
    The greatest threat to American freedom and prosperity is the American government
    and when the voters wake up, sober up and take responsibility for their lives there
    must be a cleansing of the government of Communist internationalists. The American
    government should be there to put America and Americans first, until and unless
    this is demanded by voting in other than the false professional politician our sovrignty
    will continue to be taken from us and a very dark and foreboding future will be ours,
    known as the Obama legacy………………………………..William

    what an oaf:
    ""The man who promised everything is delivering nothing," wrote Noemie Emery in the Weekly Standard. "Journalists who wept when he won the election now grind their teeth in despair. … The gap between sizzle and steak never seemed so large."
    Could it be that Mr. Obama's "superior intellect" is a myth created by journalists to mask what may be the thinnest resume of anyone ever elected president? An example of puffery is the description of Mr. Obama as a former "professor of constitutional law." Mr. Obama was a part time instructor at the University of Chicago law school, without the title or status of professor. And, according to blogger Doug Ross, he wasn't very popular with the real professors.
    "I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back," Mr. Ross wrote in March 2010. "According to my professor friend, [Obama] had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. … The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified,"
    Mr. Obama's been governing like someone with a resume too thin for a president. He's "incompetent," an "amateur," former President Bill Clinton told Hillary Clinton at a private gathering with friends, according to a new book by Ed Klein. The Clintons have vehemently denied his account.
    Even Ms. Daum noticed "the gulf between the brilliant young man who wanted to change the world and the stymied president who can barely pass a piece of legislation." Mr. Obama is just too smart to be a good president, she wrote.
    Or not smart enough. "The presidency of Barack Obama is a case study in stupid does," said Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal. "

    Stinky (aka BO) will be out of the White House next January as He, that fat-bottomed thing He's married to, Bo, and girls are removed. I'm hopeful that Moochie is visiting Chicago to investigate schools for the girls (what did Stinks do to Moochelle to get TWO babies to fall out – Thanks to Bill Maher!) and move their in September so they don't have to switch schools in the middle of the school year.

    GET THE STINK OUT – 2012

      Hey now, Michelle's fat bottom is the only good thing she has going for her.

  • DMW

    There's a collection of photos circulating that shows Obama, multiple times, with his feet on top of White House furniture. It's the perfect metaphor: the "ungrateful guest" President trodding down furnishings that are owned by someone else — in this case the American people. Let's hope he remains just a "guest".

      In his case burglar disguised as and unwanted enemy alien would be fitting and that is the
      nice description, as a guest it should be in a Federal prison…………………William

    I posted a comment 9 hours ago, shortly after midnight. Instead of my commemt being posted, I recieved a message that the moderator would review my message before posting. Of the dozen or so comments I generated for this website 25% or so get mauled somewhere in cyberspace. Is this normal for FPM?
    Just kind of irritating. Thanks.

    • WilliamJamesWard

      It is a random thing and eventually the post shows up, holiday weekend and all it is
      slower and yes a real drag………………William

    Most national governments operate at very low levels of efficiency….many are mired in incredible debt, confusion, corruption….some are Orwellian horror stories. The UN is a mess…..how can anyone believe a "world government" could be any better?

  • Tom Sullivan

    LOST is world government, ushered in by Marxists under the innocent-sounding guise of "treaty". It is an insane surrender of national sovereignty, of zero value or benefit to the US and other civilized nations.

  • dos

    It's a treachery. Period.

  • sneed5

    This upcoming election will be more of the same if we don't get out and work for our candidate — vote, donate, make calls, register the unregistered, help voters who need one get an absentee ballot, offer to drive voters to the polls, proudly display our campaign material…… A click of the mouse will not do it! We should approach the November election as though our lives may depend upon it! As it may well do it!! I don't want to and I'm not going to live under tyranny!! Do you?

  • capelady

    This is not the only treaty that Obama hopes to pass before the election in case he loses – and they all surrender American sovereignty to the United Nations. A 60% vote in the Senate is required to pass them, but with Harry Reid and the Democrats in the majority and the idiot RINOs that are inclined to vote with them, they might succeed in getting the Constitutional approval they need which would make these treaties permanent and not subject to reversal. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS FOR AMERICA FOLKS…. HARASS YOUR SENATORS AND IMPLORE THEM TO VOTE AGAINST THESE TREATIES because they are also going after the second amendment, global warming cap & trade policies, and even rules for parenting and families – we will have the UN (with its socialists and Marxist dictators, etc.) sticking its nose into every area of our lives!!!

    This is a direct assault on American sovereignty!!!

    Meddling Marxist Elisabeth Mann Borgese, the godmother of the global ocean regulatory scheme, made no bones about it: “He who rules the sea,” she exulted, “rules the land.”

    Giving away our sovereignty lends itself to bringing us under the umbrella of an international government which is the intent of the POTUS. He is doing exactly what he set out to do I believe, which is to make America a European style Nation-State.
