Business liars and military hawks testify on the Law of the Sea Treaty

On June 28th, 2012, Senator John Kerry (D)MA, convened a hearing on behalf of the Council of Foreign Relations in support of the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). Senator Kerry, acting on behalf of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) obviously forgetting that he is a Senator of  a state and who, instead represented himself as the representative of a foreign interest, claims he will not bring the LOST Treaty up for a vote until after the election so as not to politicize it. I am wondering what the delay is?

The LOST treaty would in effect be full capitulation to maritime law (admiralty law) within the United States and would effectively obliterate what is left of the Constitution and the laws and protections associated with it. “Maritime law is the law that exclusively govern activities at sea or in any navigable waters.” (1)

The question now becomes: How to use definitions and terms to imply or dictate the application of LOST terms within and upon the land mass of the nation? Simple: you simply redefine the description “navigable waters“, to “waters of America”. This covers everything, allows for broad interpretations of the treaty and the law, (meaning it can mean anything they want it to mean at any time) and then include provisions that put any complaints outside the US court system.
