Bush is ready to hand Iraq off to the UN, possibly using a Muslim-led peacekeeping force according to “The Guardian,” quoting a former senior administration official. Keep your eye on the news starting Wednesday for some “mainstream” press scrutiny on these developments.

But that isn’t my top concern today. President Bush will announce soon that he wants to revive the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. This treaty was soundly rejected by President Ronald Reagan in 1982.

The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) has been ratified by 153 countries since 1994. LOST created the International Seabed Authority (ISA), giving it total jurisdiction over all the oceans and everything in them, including the ocean floor with “all” its riches (“solid, liquid or gaseous mineral resources”). National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley has asked Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Senator Joe Biden to secure ratification “as early as possible.” So in effect, the UN would have the power to regulate seven-tenths of the world’s surface. We would surrender our sovereignty to a bureaucracy in Jamaica drawing tax-free salaries. If we ratify the treaty, we will have the same voting power as Cuba.

ISA would have the power to impose international taxes which would compel the United States, of course, to pay billions of private-enterprise dollars to ISA bureaucrats so our wealth could be transferred to Socialist, anti-American countries which Phyllis Schlafly euphemistically identifies as "developing countries."

The ISA has military implications also, in that it could require us to share our intelligence, technology and even military information. Not to mention putting restrictions on intelligence-gathering by our submarines.

LOST has also created the law of the Sea tribunal, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, with the power to decide all disputes and enforce its judgments. There can be no appeal from this tribunal’s jurisdiction.

I remember Bush Senior’s liberal use of the phrase “New World order” and subsequently Clinton’s calls to globalize just about everything about us. Clinton is, of course, a Rhodes Scholar, so I expected a lot of his warped foreign policy. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised with W’s membership in the Dark Side, but I naively hung on to some hopes early on. Shame on me!

Mr. Bush is about to lose what little conservative base he has left (a base currently hanging by their collective fingernails from a razor blade ledge) by pushing this globalist agenda.

Viva La Bush no more.


Ps. Presidential candidates McCain, Clinton and Obama were conveniently absent during the vote on the immigration bill. Chicken Shits !!!
