TREATIES Threaten US SOVEREIGNTY
International Covenant on Environment and Development – Eco-Logic Jan/Feb 98
• Agenda 21 (soft law) was the precursor to this treaty
• Consists of 11 parts, containing a total of 72 Articles
• It will convert the “soft law” recommendations of Agenda 21 into legally binding hard international law
• Supports all the principles of Agenda 21 including the Precautionary Principle
• It is in complete conflict with our constitution
• This is the UN Treaty that will move the world into the clutches of global governance
The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) – http://unlawoftheseatreaty.org
• 1970’s UN came up with the plan to control the seas of the world. In an attempt to control the mineral, oil, gas, and other riches of the sea they came up with Law of the Sea Treaty.
• 1973-1982 Law of the Sea Convention was created as a scheme to pay for this program
• Concerns about the treaty as expressed by Ronald Reagan and Ron Paul:
• Loss of US sovereignty
• Mandates large fees and profit sharing with the UN ($500K+$1M+50%)
• The sole decision on whether to grant or withhold mining permits rests with the UN
• US must share technology with other countries
• Of course we are also told these statements are unfounded. #yeahright ... We will not believe Obama and Hillary on this.
International Criminal Court – http://www.icc-cpi.int/Menus/ICC?lan=en-GB
• Requires the US to get permission from the UN to declare war. Our Congress would have no say in the decision
• Overrides our Constitution, President, Supreme Court
• No trial by jury, no right to speedy trial, no right to confront your accusers, no presumption of innocence
• It exists to prosecute presidents and other top government officials
• 4 basic crimes (genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, aggression) Who defines these crimes
• This could spill over to American citizens on American soil (NDAA)
• President Clinton and President Bush were totally against the ICC
UN Small Arms Treaty – http://scpatriotsclub.com/blog/?p=82
• A backdoor gun ban in America
• Strips second amendment protection
• Sold as a way to stop the exporting of guns (but would not have helped stop Fast & Furious; doesn’t apply equally to “developing” nations such as China, Pakistan, DPRK)
Rights of the Child – http://www2.ohchr.org/english/law/crc.htm
• Ban spanking as a crime
• Parents cannot stop children from associating with undesirables (perverts, criminals, druggies)
• Create a legal basis to sue state and local government to demand increased spending for welfare, education and health care for children
• US must give foreign aid to “poor” nations to assure their children have adequate health care, education, nutrition and housing
• When making decisions that affect the child the child must have equal input
Code of Conduct in Outer Space – http://www.thespacereview.com/article/1794/1
• Prevents the US from deploying anti-missile defense weapons systems in outer space to counter threats from Iran, North Korea and China (space defense is the most effective method of detecting missile attacks)
- Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are in complete support of these treaties.
- A treaty is ratified by the Senate alone, and does not go to the House. A 2/3 vote is required.
- A Treaty can only be reversed by a Constitutional Amendment or agreement by all participants.
- All of these treaties have been around for years and have been kept at bay. However, Obama wants all of these treaties ratified and he will find a way to implement them, whether by Executive Order or Treaty.

Please see the letter below. Some Senators ARE LISTENING.
Please thank them.
But even though there may not be the votes today, what about tomorrow? And what will happen in Lame Duck after November? We already know.
Also remember there are 6 treaties.
Bless you for all of the work you all have been doing. The calls work.
Please send this around to all of your contacts.
We must call the ones not on this list. This LOST belongs in the garbage.

Subject: Senator Inhofe's Letter in Opposition to the Law of the Sea Treaty
The Honorable Harry Reid
United States Senate
Washington, D.C. 20510
Dear Mr. Leader,
We understand that Chairman Kerry has renewed his efforts to pursue Senate ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. We are writing to let you know that we believe this Convention reflects political, economic, and ideological assumptions which are inconsistent with American values and sovereignty.
By its current terms, the Law of the Sea Convention encompasses economic and technology interests in the deep sea, redistribution of wealth from developed to undeveloped nations, freedom of navigation in the deep sea and exclusive economic zones which may impact maritime security and environmental regulation over virtually all sources of pollution.
To affect the treaty’s broad regime of governance, we are particularly concerned that United States sovereignty could be subjugated in many areas to a supranational government that is chartered by the United Nations under the 1982 Convention. Further, we are troubled that compulsory dispute resolution could pertain to public and private activities including law enforcement, maritime security, business operations, and nonmilitary activities performed aboard military vessels.
If this treaty comes to the floor, we will oppose its ratification.
