National Ocean Council
http://www.morphcity.com/home/79-national-ocean-council



By Cassandra Anderson
July 28, 2010

Thirty states will be encroached upon by Obama's Executive Order establishing the National Ocean Council for control over America's oceans, coastlines and the Great Lakes. Under this new council, states' coastal jurisdictions will be subject to the United Nations' Law Of Sea Treaty (LOST) in this UN Agenda 21 program. America'a oceans and coastlines will be broken into 9 regions that include the North East, Mid-Atlantic, South Atlantic, the Gulf Coast, West Coast, the Great Lakes, Alaska, the Pacific Islands (including Hawaii) and the Caribbean.

Because of the decades of difficulty that the collectivists have had trying to ratify the Law Of Sea Treaty (LOST), Obama is sneaking it in through the back door, by way of this Executive Order establishing the Council. Because LOST is a treaty, Obama's Executive Order is not Constitutional as treaty ratification requires 2/3 approval from the Senate. Michael Shaw said that the Agenda 21 Convention on Biodiversity treaty of 1992 failed to pass Congress so it was executed through soft law and administratively on local levels, and Obama's Executive Order is a similar soft law tactic to enact the LOST treaty.

In fact, our Constitutional form of government is being completely destroyed because buried in the CLEAR Act (HR 3534) there is a provision for a new council to oversee the outer continental shelf- it appears that this Regional Outer Shelf Council will be part of the National Ocean Council. This means that if Congress makes the CLEAR Act into law, then the implementation of the UN Law Of Sea Treaty, as part of the National Ocean Council's agenda, will be "ratified" in a convoluted and stealth manner, in full opposition to the Constitution and its intent.

The excuse for this extreme action is because of the emergency in the Gulf of Mexico. Obama and Congress have always had the legal and military power to force BP Oil to take all necessary action to stop the gusher and clean the oil spew. While there is evidence that the problems in the Gulf have been a result of collusion and planned incompetence, it begs the question, why in world should America's oceans and resources be controlled by Obama appointees?

NATIONAL OCEAN COUNCIL MEMBERS:

John Holdren, Obama's science and technology advisor, is the co-chairman of this new council. He is also a depopulation enthusiast and advocates sterilization by way of using infertility drugs in water and food as well as forced abortions which he describes in his book "Ecoscience".

Ken Salazar, Secretary of the Department of Interior, and its subagency, MMS (Minerals Management Service) has authority over offshore drilling and responsibility for enforcing spill prevention measures. The Department of Interior's BLM (Bureau of Land Management) is the entity that controls federally managed land extending across 30% of America in 11 western states. Last week, Congressman Louie Gohmert said that Ken Salazar personally prevented drilling on land in Utah, Wyoming and Colorado, thereby also preventing energy independence. In addition, the federal lands have been grossly mismanaged and present fire dangers. The federal government is $3.7 billion in arrears for maintenance of the federally managed lands.

US Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, by way of the US Forestry Service and US Fish & Wildlife Service, has been complicit in the decline of our country's food independence. For example, US Fish & Wildlife (along with the Department of Commerce) shut the water off in California using Endangered Species Act; it was later proven that partially treated sewage was the primary culprit in killing the salmon and delta smelt that was previously blamed on farmers. This is phony environmentalism. The US Forestry Service has also misused the Endangered Species Act to limit farmers and ranchers. Remember that the USDA co-owns the Terminator Gene patent with Monsanto that makes seeds sterile.

Lisa Jackson is the EPA administrator who has threatened to impose 18,000 pages of new regulations to curb global warming which is based on lies, claiming that carbon dioxide is a danger to human health.

Department of Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano: it is unclear how these two federal appointees will enhance environmental 'sustainability' over oceans and coasts. Traditionally, national security threats (like the War on Terror) have been used by the federal government to take control of resources. For example, many years ago when the interstate highway systems were first being built, the Feds got in on the action by claiming that they were building a defense highway system, and they encroached into an area that belonged to the states. Interestingly, there were no overhead structures on highways originally because of the Feds' claim that large missiles would be transported on these "defense" highway systems.

Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, a leading globalist, is likely to plunge our country into international entanglements and subjugation, based on her past performance; an example is her support of the UN Small Arms Treaty, which is contrary to the Constitution.

Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu and Department of Commerce Secretary Gary Locke are logical choices for this destructive council as some of the planned funding for this program will come from permits and leases (oil drilling leases, for example). These agencies will limit America's energy independence.

Click here to see the full list of the 24 member council.

THE SMOKING GUN:

Agenda 21 Sustainable Development is the overarching blueprint for depopulation and total control, and the National Ocean Council is clearly an Agenda 21 program:

The National Ocean Council is headed by John Holdren, an avowed eugenicist which is selective breeding through brutal means like forced abortion.

The National Ocean Counci's own report (Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning, pg. #8) incorporates a section of the 1992 Rio Declaration which is an original UN Agenda 21 document!

In fact, the report says that it will be guided by the Rio Declaration in cases "Where there are threats of serious or irreversible damage, lack of full scientific certainty shall not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation." (pg. #8) This means that regulations will be imposed even if the science is not understood or if the science is based on global warming manipulated data.(6)

The 3 primary tools of Agenda 21's phony environmentalism are global warming, water shortages and the Endangered Species Act; the National Ocean Council intends to exploit all of these tools to their full extent.


1-lostThe National Ocean Council's main objective is to sink American sovereignty through the United Nations Law Of Sea Treaty (LOST) with the intended result of domination by the UN  over our coasts and the Great Lakes. LOST originated in the 1970s as a wealth redistribution plan to benefit Third World countries. LOST sets rules for commercial activity beneath the high seas and establishes new international bureaucracies and a tribunal to interpret and apply rules to sea activity. And LOST can proceed with those rules, even against US objections! LOST threatens to complicate deep sea mining. LOST sets a precedent that US rights are dependent upon the approval of international entities. LOST also extends to ocean flowing rivers.

REGIONALISM:

Michael Shaw pointed out that non-elected councils are increasingly expanding their jurisdiction through air quality boards, water quality boards, sewer systems, transportation districts, metropolitan planning, etc. to gain control over resources. Often, large corporations and financial interests form Public- Private Partnerships with the government within these councils.

Breaking areas into regions and placing authority with non-elected councils is a Communist trick used to hijack resources, thereby usurping local and state power by re-zoning the areas that do have Constitutional authority. Appointed bureaucrats are untouchable because their jobs are not dependent upon serving the voting population. And they are usually inaccessible to the public and do not have to face those who are affected by their "insider" decisions. When state and local governments become corrupt, the public is able to confront them eye to eye, but distant bureaucrats can avoid accountability. Regionalism is used as a psychological tactic to intimidate state legislatures into creating the system for a new political and economic order.

Obama's Executive Order that has created the 9 new regions amounts to re-zoning, and his appointed bureaucrats are answerable only to him. In David Horton's testimony in 1978 on regionalism, he said that the State of Indiana made this declaration, "Neither the states nor Congress have ever granted authority to any branch or agency of the federal government to exercise regional control over the states." Horton further stated that Congress holds all legislative power that is granted in the Constitution, as opposed to Executive Orders that are not legislative. Therefore, Obama's Executive Order for re-zoning and appointing a governing body to usurp state and local power is Constitutionally invalid.

The public must become aware of state sovereignty and the Tenth Amendment to demand that state and local governments assert these Constitutional laws and principles.

COASTAL AND MARINE SPATIAL PLANNING REPORT:

This is a general overview of the new National Ocean Council's goals based on its 32-page report that uses indirect language and acronyms in order to confuse the public and local lawmakers. Depopulation advocates, globalists and collectivists, like John Holdren, faced opposition a few decades ago when they clearly expressed their objectives, so now documents are written in complicated and clouded language to fool those they wish to control.

This report states that the Council's jurisdiction will extend from the continental shelf to the coast AND additional inland areas will be involved. The National Ocean Council identifies "partners" as members of each regional planning body that will include federal, state, local and tribal authorities, with a top-down hierarchy of control.

The intentions of the Council are stated on page 8 of the report that include implementing LOST and other international treaties.  The report also states that the Counci's plans shall be implemented by Executive Orders, in addition to federal and state laws.  This section mentions 'global climate change' which is a new term used as a substitute for 'man made global warming' after manipulated data and lies were exposed in numerous global warming scandals.  'Climate change' is blamed for sea level rise and acidification of oceans; evidence exists that these are more global warming deceptions.

The stated goals of the Council include regulating investments, collaborating with unidentified international agencies, controlling public access to oceans and "protecting" ecosystems. This means that commerce and trade will be controlled by the Council, the UN will gain power over American oceans and the Great Lakes through UN subagencies, public access will be limited and the Endangered Species Act will be unleashed, with heavy regulations. Incidentally, the Endangered Species Act is based on 5 international treaties. It has never had a successful result: of the 60 species that have been de-listed, not a single species was saved as a result of any restrictions stemming from the Endangered Species Act!

The targeted areas for Endangered Species Act regulations are the the Great Lakes, the Gulf Coast, Chesapeake Bay, Puget Sound, South Florida and the San Francisco Bay (the Bay Delta is where the irrigation water for farmers was was cut off using the Endangered Species Act, causing food shortages, an increase in food imports and massive economic devastation).

While this report does not clearly outline how the National Ocean Council's schemes will be financed, regulatory permits for all activity on the water and mining (oil) leases will play a part, along with tax increases. The report does indicate that grants and assistance programs will be available so that state, local and tribal authorities will support the Council's "efforts". In other words, the Council will try to buy off the state and local governments to "collectively use" them for a base of support and influence. (pg. 28) Strings are always attached to federal money. The federal government and the Council are reliant on state and local governments for implementation through state and local legal authority, which means that state and local authorities hold the power to implement or refuse the Council's directives, especially under the Tenth Amendment.

However, the report does state that disputes will be settled by consensus, if consensus fails, then the decisions will ultimately be made by the President. He is Commander in Chief of the Navy and has the power of the military behind him. Further, the report indicates that legislative changes and more Executive Orders may be necessary to achieve control.

An important point is made on page 5, which states, "Strong partnerships among Federal, State, tribal and local authorities, and regional governance structures would be essential to a truly forward-looking, comprehensive CMSP effort." This means that the states, local governments and tribes have power. Our collectivist government needs the consent of the state, local and tribal authorities, to implement this scheme, otherwise, the feds wouldn't bother to include these Constitutional authorities. If the state, local and tribal authorities are aware of, and willing to act on their Constitutional authority, then they can limit this federal power grab through the Tenth Amendment.

The report further states that signing onto the Council's plan would be an "express commitment by the partners to act in accordance with the plan..." (pg. 20) Therefore, it is imperative that all of the states be aware of the Council's intended usurpation and carefully protect their Constitutional jurisdictions and sovereignty. There are 30 states that will be affected by this new council. (pg. 12)

The Council's strategy plan will go into effect immediately, fully developing Agenda 21 objectives and undue UN influence within 5 years. Interestingly, one article said that if state, local and tribal authorities choose not to participate in in writing the plans, the plans would be written without them. Therefore, it bears repeating that state and local governments must protect their Constitutional authority when dealing with the Council. The Constitutional authority that states and local governments have can only be taken if the power is given away.

SAVING OUR COUNTRY:

If your freedom is important to you, the most effective action that you can take is to e-mail this article and Michael Shaw's "Understanding Agenda 21 Sustainable Development" booklet to all of your State Legislators, County Commissioners/ Superintendents and City Council members.

Tell all of your friends, co-workers and neighbors about Agenda 21 Sustainable Development and how it is destroying our country. The National Ocean Council is detrimental on so many levels and the time to act is now. If state and local officials refuse to stand up against this federal incursion, they must be thrown out of office in favor of representatives who support the Constitution and the Tenth Amendment.

Be sure to check back with www.MorphCity.com on July 30th to watch a special video presentation about how a local official stood up against encroachment by the federal government.

Obama Establishes New National Ocean Council
redOrbit
Posted on: Tuesday, 20 July 2010, 09:50 CDT

--

The order also calls for steps to be taken to protect, maintain, restore, and improve the resiliency of aquatic ecosystems, adapt to a changing global environment and support sustainability efforts, and more. In order to accomplish these goals, Obama's executive order calls for the establishment of a "a comprehensive and collaborative framework for the stewardship of the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes that facilitates cohesive actions across the Federal Government, as well as participation of State, tribal, and local authorities, regional governance structures, nongovernmental organizations, the public, and the private sector," as well as "accession to the Law of the Sea Convention."

NEVER FORGET THE OBAMA DECEPTION

THE DECEPTION IS TO KEEP US IN LEFT/RIGHT PARADIGMS...

BUSH I, CLINTON, BUSH II OPENED THIS CAN OF WORMS, SOETORO IS JUST THE NEW FACE OF THE BILDERBERG TAKEOVER OF AMERICA...



BUSH LEGACY: SELLOUT
http://www.newswithviews.com/Ryter/jon269.htm
By Jon Christian Ryter
January 16, 2009
NewsWithViews.com

Based on the face of it, we can assume that outgoing President George W. Bush failed Geography 101 since the Mariana Trench is about 6,000 miles from Los Angeles. Former presidents, tritely using 34 Stat. 225, 16 USC 431, The Antiquities Act of June 8, 1906 to appease environmentalists and/or oil, gas or mineral rights profiteers, have appropriated valuable land from the citizens of the United States to keep it from being economically exploited, thereby theoretically safeguarding the land for posterity (i.e., their constituents for exploitation by them at some future date) by converting them into national parks, reserves or sanctuaries. For example, on May 26, 1952, shortly after massive oil reserves were discovered along the North Slope of Alaska, President Harry S. Truman issued Executive Order 10355 creating the Arctic National Wildlife Range which was to consume some 8.9 million acres of land sitting directly on top of the most important oil find since the initial discovery of crude oil at Oil Creek, Pennsylvania in 1862 and the Baku Oil Fields in Russia in 1873.

Fearing that the North Slope oil find might trigger a "black gold rush" like the Oil Creek "oil rush" during the Civil War, that could potentially collapse the wholesale price of oil worldwide, lobbyists for the Seven Sisters and the oil industry-financed environment movement petitioned Truman to create a wildlife habitant where oil drilling would be banned. Truman did. Executive Order 10355 called for creating a refuge "...beginning at the intersection of the International Boundary line between Alaska and Yukon Territory, Canada, with the line of extreme low water of the Arctic Ocean in the vicinity of Monument 1 of said International Boundary line, thence westerly along the said line of extreme low water, including all offshore bars, reefs and islands to a point of land on the Arctic seacoast known as Brownlee Point...;" and so forth in minute detail provided by those who possessed accurate knowledge of the size and scope of the oil deposits we know today as ANWR. The Refuge was assigned to the Department of the Interior's US Fish and Wildlife Service. On February 29, 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued Presidential Proclamation 4729 changing the name of the Refuge to the William O. Douglas Arctic Wildlife Refuge. Ten months later Congress legislated the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980 officially creating the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and stealing 27.47 million oil rich acres from the people Alaska, and preventing Alaskan entrepreneurs from competing with the Seven Sisters for a slice of the global oil and natural gas pie.

Just as the global banking cartel controls the price of money and the availability of credit by manipulating the fractional reserve to expand and contract the economy at whim, the fossil fuel cartel control the retail prices of all of the world's fossil fuels by manipulating the futures market to expand and contract the supply of crude oil, natural gas and, at the pump, gasoline and home heating oil. When true free enterprise exists, and the bureaucracy is unable to stifle either the free flow of money through State banks and the free flow of goods and commodities, prices drop and the free enterprise economic system works.

In September, 1996, some nine weeks before President Bill Clinton's reelection against Republican challenger and Senate majority leader Bob Dole [R-KS], the 42nd President of the United States paid off Beijing-linked Indonesian banker and businessman Mochtar Riady's for Riady's Lippo Group's illegal contributions to both of Clinton's campaigns, the President invoked the The Antiquities Act of June 8, 1906 to create the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Without congressional approval, Clinton nationalized 1.7 million acres of the sovereign State of Utah. Clinton stood on the same spot where, in 1908, then President Theodore Roosevelt, citing the same legislation to protect the Grand Canyon from commercial development, by Executive Order banned mining from one of the world's largest known deposits of low sulfur anthracite coal, giving Riady a virtual global monopoly on anthracite coal.

Clinton's decision closed the largest anthracite coal field in the nation—the Kaiparowitz Plateau—which contained, at a bare minimum, 7 billion tons of anthracite coal worth close to one $1.5 trillion in 1996 dollars. The Kentucky-based coal giant, Andalux Resources, held leases on 3,400 acres of coal-rich land in southwest Utah, and was in process of launching a major underground mine that would have generated over 1,000 full time jobs that would have put upwards of $50 million per year into the Kane County, Utah economy. With the land suddenly off limits for anything except tourist photo ops, the jobs dried up and the anthracite coal now being burned in what factories are left in America comes from Indonesia.

Creating the Marianas Trench Marine US National Monument is a legal stretch even for the United States government since, clearly, the Mariana Trench isn't a part of the United States. However, according to Bush's Presidential Proclamation, dated Jan. 6, 2009, the language of 34 Stat. 225, 16 USC 431, The Antiquities Act of June 8, 1906 authorizes the President, "...in his discretion, to declare by public proclamation historic landmarks, historic and prehistoric structures, and other objects of historic or scientific interest that are situated upon lands owned or controlled by the Government of the United States to be national monuments."

While it's clear that the nationalistic, non-empire building 59th Congress did not remotely contemplate that a future president would attempt to create a United States National Monument out of the Mariana Trench Archipelago since the island cluster, which is about 1,500 miles from China, is about 6,000 miles from the United States. Guam is the southern most island in the Mariana Trench Archipelago. There are 14 islands which make up the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, a mid-ocean ridge some 1,400 miles from Japan who owned the islands and atolls America won in battle during World War II.

One Mariana Archipelago island is currently under the control of the United States: Guam. Add to that the American Samoa island known as the Rose Atoll and what is collectively known as the "Pacific Remote islands" (Johnston Atoll, Kingman Reef, and Palmyra Atoll in the Mariana Archipelago and Wake. Howland, and Jarvis Islands) which are part of the Hawaiian Archipelago and you have Bush's claim of sovereignty over 335,561 square miles of the Pacific Ocean on behalf of the World Wildlife Fund and the Pew Foundation. However, there's another flaw in Bush's reasoning.

In 1979 (before he gave away the Panama Canal), President Jimmy Carter ceded part of the Stewart Island chain (Washington Island, Fanning island, Makin Island, and Makin Atoll) to Kiribati. In an attempt to outdo Carter, the Clinton-Gore Administration abandoned the rest of the Pacific outposts taken by the United States during World War II except Midway and Wake Island. Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright struck the colors and abandoned the islands and atolls Bush-43 claimed to be part of the his "Pacific Remote Islands:" Baker, Howland, Jarvis, Nassau and Palmyra islands, Kingman Reef and Johnston Atoll. Which, of course, is probably why Bush chose to refer to them as the "Pacific Remote Islands" instead of their names since that might be confusing to some people since China now claims some of them even though they were Japanese possessions when we liberated them.

Since 2006 the Pew Foundation's Environment Group's Global Ocean Legacy Program worked directly with the Bush-43 Administration to create a large-scale marine reserve in the waters of the Mariana Trench Archipelago. According to Bush's proclamation, Baker, Howland and Jarvis Islands were formed some 75 to 120 million years ago as fringing reefs by Cretaceous Era volcanoes. Deep coral forests descend to great depths below the photic zones. The Pew Environmental Group claims it wants to preserve the natural unspoiled nature of these waters like the volcanic undersea vents (called smokers) that bubble with liquid carbon dioxide. The Pew Foundation wanted a United States national marine reserve in the Mariana Trench and Bush was as accommodating as a retiring president can be.

Resisting Bush's effort to create the marine reserve under the Antiquities Act was the National Marine Manufacturer's Association for a variety of reasons, least of which is the fact that the Mariana Archipelago simply is not part of the United States of America. NMMA believes the proclamation bypasses long-standing peer review and public comment. Peer review and public comment would have been part and parcel of the process if Congress had decided to enact the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument into law. They didn't because it would have been a piece of legislation attacked by everyone since it exceeded the authority of the lawmaking body of the United States. Of course, since Bush's edict is a proclamation and not a law, peer review or public comment was not needed.

While the advocates of governance by executive decree are quick to point out that every president since George Washington has issued Executive Orders and/or Presidential Proclamations, few will acknowledge that, prior to FDR, presidential proclamations were used solely to designate special days—like Mother's Day, or Thanksgiving. Executive orders are instructions from the "boss" to his employees in the Executive Branch. Neither carries the force of law because, constitutionally, the President of the United States has no legislative power and cannot create law. Nor does he possess the judicial power to enforce his edicts. Again, at the risk of being repetitious, every Congressman and Senator on the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue is well aware of that fact. They have chosen to tolerate presidential excursions into totalitarianism with barely a whimper of outrage because presidents "legislate" the agendas of the overlords of life who manipulate nations from behind the seats of government and not in them. Laws which elected politicians could never successfully legislate and keep their jobs are fast-tracked into the US Code by Executive Order, Presidential Proclamation and Presidential Decision Directives which violate the constitutional separation of power between the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government, and they infringe on the separation of power between the States and the central government by violating the 10th Amendment.

When Congressman Jack Metcalf [R-WA], who died at age 79 on March 15, 2007, sponsored House Concurrent Resolution 30 in 1999, the left slated him for removal. Metcalf was defeated in his reelection bid in November, 2000. Resolution 30 stated that whenever a president issued an Executive Order that exceeded his constitutional authority, Congress would notify the White House it had received the President's "advisory memo" and, without making any promises to enact it, would take it under advisement.


When Bill Clinton issued an Executive Order banning smoking in all federal government offices, then Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole sent a terse note to the White House reminding Clinton that Executive Orders are nothing more than interoffice memos from an employer (the President) to his employees (the Executive Branch of government), so while the President could mandate that his employees could not smoke in the office buildings under his jurisdiction (the Executive Branch), he had no authority to issue edicts to either the Legislative or Judicial Branches of government. While the White House offices (excluding Clinton's office) became a smokefree zone, the smoking lamp remained lit on the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue.

The approach the NMMA should have taken was simply to denounce the Presidential Proclamation as just so much 'who shot John." Instead, the NMMA treated like it was a legitimate exercise of presidential power. In their press release, they said: "We are disappointed about this new effort to restrict pubic access to marine resources held in the public trust without a proper review process. This new designation needlessly prohibits recreational angling in vast areas of the ocean without any scientific basis, and sends the wrong signal that angling is a threat to the environment...As we move forward, we are hopeful that President-elect Obama and his administration will abandon this model of managing marine resources and look to the angling, boating and conservative communities as partners in environmental stewardship..."

The total area of the Mariana Trench archipelago is about 190 thousand square miles of sea and sea floor. Bush's proclamation protects 95,222 square miles, or about 45% of the archipelago. Bush nationalized 13,451 square miles of seabeds in the Rose Atoll and 86,607 square miles to protect the seven islands and atolls in the Pacific Remote Islands Monument. What supposedly made Bush's seabed snatch legal was not legitimate claims of ownership to the islands archipelago systems by the United States but the implementation of the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea [LOST] which went into force on Nov. 16, 1994 and allowed the major nations who could enforce their will, to establish and control exclusive marine zones on behalf of the world's largest environmental groups. Neither Ronald Reagan nor George H.W. Bush would sign the treaty. Reagan was concerned about the rights of nations to conduct deep seabed mining. On Jan. 29, 1982 Reagan issued a statement expressing his intent not to sign LOST. In a prepared text, he said: "While most provisions of the draft convention are acceptable and consistent with United States interests, some major elements of the deep seabed mining regime are not acceptable.." When he testified before Congress, Reagan's Deputy Secretary of State, John Negroponte testified that Reagan's misgivings were solely "...due to deep flaws in the seabed mining chapter—Part XI of the Convention..." suggesting that if that provision had been removed, Reagan would have signed it. In his personal diary on Tues., June 29, 1982, (published in the book The Reagan Diaries (edited by Douglas Brinkley, Regnery © 2007; pg 91) Reagan noted: "Decided in NSC meeting—will not sign "Law of the Sea" treaty even without seabed mining provisions." On Oct. 13, another diary entry shows that Reagan sent Bush-43 Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to convince our allies in Europe and Asia to join the United States in rejecting LOST. Rumsfeld's mission was successful. LOST went on the back burner until Bill Clinton won the White House with illegal Chinese campaign contributions.

The Clinton-Gore Administration had no such misgivings. Bill Clinton signed the Law of the Sea Treaty in October, 1994, he said, to protect endangered sea turtles. Clinton revived a treaty that had already been declared dead. The GOP-controlled Congress refused to ratify the treaty, believing it would die even though Clinton (who claimed he fixed it even though he didn't) was the 154th head of State to sign LOST. The treaty was activated with his signature. The little known 300-plus year old International Law of the Nations mandates that when the leader of a nation (president, prime minister, or even Foreign Minister or Secretary of State signs a treaty on behalf of his or her nation, under the terms of the Law of the Nations, the treaty is deemed to ratified by the world community.

The seabed regulations have created a bizarre regulatory regime which is antagonistic to commerce, exploration and investment. LOST treats the ocean's "unowned" seabed resources as property of the United Nations. The same happens with mineral wealth in the seabeds of the protected marine reserves. LOST created a new power structure in the UN—the International Seabed Authority to govern deep seabed mining. In addition, the Seabed Authority Council would mine the ocean floor with the coerced help of Western mining companies on behalf of the Authority and would then redistribute the income generated from the project from the industrialized nations to the developing countries. In doing so, LOST seeks to discourage future mining schemes and punish those entrepreneurs by seizing the revenues earned from the seabed mining ventures. LOST would discourage seabed exploration of other unowned seabed resources.

In the seabeds around the Mariana Trench and Rose Atoll National Monuments, geologists have identified hard minerals like phosphorite, abyssal manganese, ferromanganese, cobalt, sulfide, olivine, feldspar, clinopyroxene, opaline, silica, and pyrite as well as hydrathermal deposits of gold and silver and the world's richest deposits of baryte (barite). In addition, under the seabeds in the Pacific Remote Islands is the world's largest oil and natural gas reserves. Preliminary estimates suggest the oil and natural gas reserves under the Pacific Remote Islands Monument will dwarf the combined reserves under the North Slope or Alaska and the Arabian Peninsula.. In 2005 Standard Oil entered into an IPO with China National Oil [CNOOC] to further explore and develop the oil and natural gas deposits in the seabeds under the Pacific Remote Islands Monument and the Rose Atoll Monument.

Clearly, the purpose of nationalizing 335 thousand square miles of the South Pacific seabeds was to place thousands of miles of unowned seabeds off limit by preventing entrepreneurial oil speculators from tapping into some of the richest oil and natural gas properties in the world. While this application of LOST converts lands, and seabeds owned by the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa and, to a minor degree, Hawaii, US federal law, under LOST, is applicable to stop anyone from exploiting the pristine, unspoiled and biologically diverse sea habitat.

Washington -- President Bush has urged the Senate to approve U.S. participation in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea "to advance U.S. interests in the world's oceans."

To date, 153 parties have signed on to the convention, which entered into force in 1994. The convention aims to promote international communication, foster peaceful use and conservation of ocean resources and preserve the marine environment.

"Joining [the convention] will serve the national security interests of the United States," President Bush said in a May 15 statement, and "promote U.S. interests in the environmental health of the oceans and ... give the United States a seat at the table when the rights that are vital to our interests are debated and interpreted."

The comprehensive document covers nearly every aspect of the use of the ocean and its seabed, said Margaret Hayes, director of the State Department Office of Oceans Affairs in the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.

"It sets out jurisdictional areas, limits on them and rules about their use -- for example, that a territorial sea can't be more than 12 miles [19.3 kilometers] from a country's shores," Hayes said in a May 17 USINFO interview. "And there are provisions on high-seas freedoms that are necessary to every nation's security. The convention also allows a country to claim a 200-mile [322-kilometer] exclusive economic zone where the coastal state can exercise sovereign rights over resources found there."

The treaty also addresses passage of ships, international navigation, the rights of archipelagic states, the continental shelf, marine life conservation and management, resource development, scientific research, a binding procedure for dispute settlement and more.

A CONSTITUTION FOR THE OCEANS

The law of the sea was a doctrine developed in the 17th century to limit coastal state rights and jurisdiction over the oceans to a narrow belt of sea surrounding a nation's coastline.

The rest of the sea was free to all until the mid-20th century forward, when a range of issues -- fishing, pollution, military use, mineral rights -- made treaties necessary to restore order and promote better management of ocean resources.

By 1958, the first U.N. Conference on the Law of the Sea in Geneva had produced four treaties that addressed the territorial sea, the continental shelf, the high seas, and fishing and conserving living resources on the high seas. There was also an optional protocol that addressed the compulsory settlement of disputes.

The United States signed all but the resolution-dispute treaty, Hayes said, but continued throughout the 1970s and early 1980s to seek a more comprehensive agreement -- what Tommy Koh of Singapore, president of the Third U.N. Conference on the Law of the Sea, called in 1967 "a constitution for the oceans."

The convention was completed in 1982. The United States accepted all the provisions except Part XI, which addressed deep-sea mining for minerals and established the International Seabed Authority to authorize and regulate seabed exploration and mining.

The United States objected to the provisions because it and others with major economic interests at stake did not have adequate influence over future decisions, Hayes said. Then-President Ronald Reagan declined to sign the convention but in 1983 issued an Oceans Policy Statement that said the United States accepted, and would act in accordance with, all the provisions except those in Part XI.

By 1994, when the convention came into force, Hayes said, participating nations had made changes to Part XI that made the provisions acceptable to the United States and other countries, but the U.S. Senate has not yet approved the convention.

In response to Bush's statement, Hayes said the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is expected to schedule hearings on the convention over the next few months, and the administration hopes the full Senate will act on the convention as a priority this year.

More information about the Law of the Sea is available on the U.N. Web site.

For Immediate Release
July 19, 2010

Executive Order--Stewardship of the Ocean, Our Coasts, and the Great Lakes

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Purpose. The ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes provide jobs, food, energy resources, ecological services, recreation, and tourism opportunities, and play critical roles in our Nation's transportation, economy, and trade, as well as the global mobility of our Armed Forces and the maintenance of international peace and security. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and resulting environmental crisis is a stark reminder of how vulnerable our marine environments are, and how much communities and the Nation rely on healthy and resilient ocean and coastal ecosystems. America's stewardship of the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes is intrinsically linked to environmental sustainability, human health and well-being, national prosperity, adaptation to climate and other environmental changes, social justice, international diplomacy, and national and homeland security.

This order adopts the recommendations of the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force, except where otherwise provided in this order, and directs executive agencies to implement those recommendations under the guidance of a National Ocean Council. Based on those recommendations, this order establishes a national policy to ensure the protection, maintenance, and restoration of the health of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems and resources, enhance the sustainability of ocean and coastal economies, preserve our maritime heritage, support sustainable uses and access, provide for adaptive management to enhance our understanding of and capacity to respond to climate change and ocean acidification, and coordinate with our national security and foreign policy interests.

This order also provides for the development of coastal and marine spatial plans that build upon and improve existing Federal, State, tribal, local, and regional decisionmaking and planning processes. These regional plans will enable a more integrated, comprehensive, ecosystem-based, flexible, and proactive approach to planning and managing sustainable multiple uses across sectors and improve the conservation of the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes.

Sec. 2. Policy. (a) To achieve an America whose stewardship ensures that the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes are healthy and resilient, safe and productive, and understood and treasured so as to promote the well-being, prosperity, and security of present and future generations, it is the policy of the United States to:

    * (i) protect, maintain, and restore the health and biological diversity of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems and resources;
    * (ii) improve the resiliency of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems, communities, and economies;
    * (iii) bolster the conservation and sustainable uses of land in ways that will improve the health of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems;
    * (iv) use the best available science and knowledge to inform decisions affecting the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes, and enhance humanity's capacity to understand, respond, and adapt to a changing global environment;
    * (v) support sustainable, safe, secure, and productive access to, and uses of the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes;
    * (vi) respect and preserve our Nation's maritime heritage, including our social, cultural, recreational, and historical values;
    * (vii) exercise rights and jurisdiction and perform duties in accordance with applicable international law, including respect for and preservation of navigational rights and freedoms, which are essential for the global economy and international peace and security;
    * (viii) increase scientific understanding of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems as part of the global interconnected systems of air, land, ice, and water, including their relationships to humans and their activities;
    * (ix) improve our understanding and awareness of changing environmental conditions, trends, and their causes, and of human activities taking place in ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes waters; and
    * (x) foster a public understanding of the value of the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes to build a foundation for improved stewardship.

(b) The United States shall promote this policy by:

    * (i) ensuring a comprehensive and collaborative framework for the stewardship of the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes that facilitates cohesive actions across the Federal Government, as well as participation of State, tribal, and local authorities, regional governance structures, nongovernmental organizations, the public, and the private sector;
    * (ii) cooperating and exercising leadership at the international level;
    * (iii) pursuing the United States' accession to the Law of the Sea Convention; and
    * (iv) supporting ocean stewardship in a fiscally responsible manner.

Sec. 3. Definitions. As used in this order:

(a) "Final Recommendations" means the Final Recommendations of the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force that shall be made publicly available and for which a notice of public availability shall be published in the Federal Register.

(b) The term "coastal and marine spatial planning" means a comprehensive, adaptive, integrated, ecosystem-based, and transparent spatial planning process, based on sound science, for analyzing current and anticipated uses of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes areas. Coastal and marine spatial planning identifies areas most suitable for various types or classes of activities in order to reduce conflicts among uses, reduce environmental impacts, facilitate compatible uses, and preserve critical ecosystem services to meet economic, environmental, security, and social objectives. In practical terms, coastal and marine spatial planning provides a public policy process for society to better determine how the ocean, our coasts, and Great Lakes are sustainably used and protected -- now and for future generations.

(c) The term "coastal and marine spatial plans" means the plans that are certified by the National Ocean Council as developed in accordance with the definition, goals, principles, and process described in the Final Recommendations.

Sec. 4. Establishment of National Ocean Council. (a) There is hereby established the National Ocean Council (Council).

(b) The Council shall consist of the following:

    * (i) the Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality and the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, who shall be the Co-Chairs of the Council;
