Be Born Again in the Spirit

'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.""

COP15 Primer for Fort Wayne Residents


(November 1, 2009)

Government by Treaties

Buried on page 18, paragraph 38, of the negotiating text of the Copenhagen Protocol to the Climate Change Treaty, are these words:

"The scheme for the new institutional arrangement under the Convention will be based on three basic pillars: government; facilitative mechanism; and financial mechanism...."

The text goes on to define the Conference of the Parties (COP) as the government to oversee the "facilitative and financial mechanisms." The facilitative mechanism includes five agencies, one of which specializes in international monitoring, reporting, and compliance. The financial mechanism also includes five agencies, one of which specializes in compensation for losses and damages caused by excessive emissions from developed nations.

If this language is adopted in Copenhagen, and the treaty ratified by the Senate, every American who uses energy will be subject to a United Nation's agency empowered to monitor energy use, collect taxes, fines, and other revenues for redistribution to other nations.

Law of the Sea Treaty

Article II, Paragraph 3 of this treaty says:

"The sovereignty over the territorial sea is exercised subject to this Convention and to other rules of international law."

If this treaty is ratified, activity within the 12-mile territorial sea limit, as well as activity along the coastline and in waterways and estuaries that feed into the territorial sea, will be governed by a United Nations agency.

Sadly, the current administration, as well as a substantial number of our Senators, are eager to ratify these and other treaties that are waiting in the pipeline.

Here is an idea whose time may have come: A 28th Amendment that requires three-fourths of the states to ratify all treaties, rather than two-thirds of the Senate. Read more about this idea here:

How to save the country

If you are interested in how the United Nations has grown its power over the years to the point where global governance is now accepted and even eagerly anticipated by much of the world - including many Americans, take advantage of these special offers:

  1. Actually, the Law of the Sea Convention restates the provisions of the 1958 Geneva Convention on the Law of the Sea and customary international law before that, except for two things:

    First, our territorial sea is 12 miles out to sea instead of the 3 miles it was before the convention.

    Second, the convention is an agreement on the rules all nations agree to follow and we have already agreed to follow the territorial sea provision you referred to. More than that, it was Ronald Reagan himself who directed the navy to implement that provision, and all other navigation provisions of the convention, even through he didn't sign the convention because of the provisions regarding minerals of the deep ocean floor.

    And the estuaries and waterways you speak of are recognized under the Convention as internal waters that are subject only to US law and are not subject to innocent passage.

    On the other hand, our navy and merchant marine depend on the right of innocent passage through foreign territorial sea for our own mobility. As a country with a blue water navy we gain much more that we give up with the innocent passage provision. The thing this section of the convention does do for us is limit the possibility that other countries might try to stretch the vague terminology of the 1958 convention by including a closed list of reasons that innocent passage can be denied.

    It is a shame that a dislike of international treaties is leading some to through the baby out with the bath water,

  2. Except that there is nothing worth salvaging in this treaty.

    Furthermore KYoto II is ugly and simply designed to redistribute wealth while using global climate change as the catalyst. Pure bull shit and we all know it. Man has nothing to do with warming nor does carbon dioxide emissions. Read Lord Monckton for the truth.
