Sovereignty surrendered

Post by Sonshine on Mon May 11, 2009 2:15 am

Sovereignty surrendered – Henry Lamb –

Five international treaties stand poised, ready for ratification by the new nearly filibuster-proof Senate, pushed by the new, nearly giddy administration. Each of these treaties surrenders a little more of our national sovereignty to an international body governed by a majority of nations that despise the United States.

Treaties are voluntary agreements among nations to prohibit certain actions or to accomplish certain objectives. They are typically not enforceable – at this time – except through economic sanctions or nasty tirades at the United Nations or through the international media. Since 1998, however, a new dimension has entered the world – the International Criminal Court. The ICC has not been ratified by the United States, but clearly could be added to the list of treaties that are ready for ratification.

The ICC was created to prosecute genocide, war crimes, aggression and … crimes against humanity. Who decides when a national activity falls within the jurisdiction of the ICC? The ICC, of course. So far, the ICC doesn't have the clout to exercise the authority it has on paper, but the mechanism is there. All it needs is the cooperation and funding of the United States and it will begin to spread its wings.

It is worth noting that at nearly every U.N. Climate Change Meeting, a delegate from one or more nations will take the podium to bad-mouth the United States for its refusal to ratify the Kyoto Protocol and label the refusal as a "crime against humanity." The course this administration is charting will empower the ICC to prosecute individuals and companies within sovereign nations for treaty violations labeled "crimes against humanity."

The Convention on Biological Diversity

This treaty provides for government control of virtually all land use. The 16-page treaty is accompanied by a 1,140-page instruction book called the Global Biodiversity Assessment, which, on page 993, identifies the Wildlands Project as the "central theme" of the treaty's land-use management scheme.

The Convention on the Law of the Sea

Three times this treaty has been presented to the Senate for ratification, and three times it did not garner enough support to warrant a vote. This Senate is different; it can and likely will ratify this thrice-rejected abomination. The Convention on the Law of the Sea explicitly says that the exercise of national sovereignty within our territorial seas must conform to the terms of this treaty and other international law. Ratification of this treaty is absolutely the surrender of national sovereignty. It also designates the global commons to be the "heritage of all mankind" under the jurisdiction of the United Nations. And it creates an International Seabed Authority with the power to levy taxes in the form of permit fees and royalties.

The Convention on the Rights of the Child

This treaty contains 54 articles and conveys nearly as many new rights to children. The "right" to receive information from any source – despite what the parents may have to say about the source – is one example. Essentially, this treaty takes the authority to make decisions about children from the parents and gives the authority to the government.

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women

This is another U.N. treaty that seeks to "equalize" everyone by bestowing rights on some people and penalizing others. A CEDAW compliance committee could require 50/50 employment of men and women, regardless of the task or employer's desire and, fully implemented, could require that men and women divide housework equally – regardless of which spouse might work outside the home. It is a ridiculous treaty that should not be ratified just to curry favor from the international community.

Inter-American Convention Against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives, and Other Related Materials

A good way to ignore the Second Amendment is to ratify this treaty, as 30 of the 34 American states (countries) have done. A product of the Clinton era, and now resurrected by President Obama, this treaty would enable the regulation of all firearms. Claiming that the Mexican drug problem is worsened by the flow of guns from the United States, the president has announced his intention to push for the treaty's ratification.

There are more international treaties, agreements and resolutions in the wings, waiting in turn to crash down upon unsuspecting Americans, all in the name of "resetting" our image with the international community. These five treaties are at the front of the line and already designated for quick Senate action. Each treaty surrenders a little more national sovereignty, but to the current administration, national sovereignty doesn't appear to be nearly as important as international approval

Oh, by the end of Obama's reign we will be a communist nation...That is what floors me. Most people don't even see it. I don't care if you voted for the man....You have to see what is going on with this..


You laugh because I am different. I laugh because you are all the same.

The problem is, they do see it and don't care.

but from idle pursuits a man has his fill of poverty

There are those besides me who I believe, would agree with you...

"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."

-- John Philpot Curran: Speech upon the Right of Election, 1790. (Speeches. Dublin, 1808.) as quoted in the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, NY, 1953, p167 and also in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, Boston, 1968, p479
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

-- Samuel Adams
"If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom; and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that too."

-- Somerset Maugham
"Against us are... all timid men who prefer the calm of despotism to the boisterous sea of liberty... We are likely to preserve the liberty we have obtained only by unremitting labors and perils."

--Thomas Jefferson to Philip Mazzei, 1796. ME 9:336
"Those who profess to favor freedom, yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."

-- Frederick Douglass
"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

-- Sir Edward Gibbon (1737-1794)
"The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living and the get rich quick theory of life."

-- Teddy Roosevelt
"A people may prefer a free government, but if, from indolence, or carelessness, or cowardice, or want of public spirit, they are unequal to the exertions necessary for preserving it; if they will not fight for it when it is directly attacked; if they can be deluded by the artifices used to cheat them out of it; if by momentary discouragement, or temporary panic, or a fit of enthusiasm for an individual, they can be induced to lay their liberties at the feet even of a great man, or trust him with powers which enable him to subvert their institutions; in all these cases they are more or less unfit for liberty: and though it may be for their good to have had it even for a short time, they are unlikely long to enjoy it."

-- John Stuart Mill, Representative Government, 1861
