STAND FOR AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY
Lou Dobbs asked me, during a discussion of the North American Union,
why our media show no interest in the issue of sovereignty. I said
it wasn’t considered sexy enough. Perhaps if “sovereignty” had big
breasts and shapely legs, like Anna Nicole Smith, we might stand a
chance of getting some more coverage. Tragically, American sovereignty
seems to be meeting the same fate as Miss Smith.
U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), now being pushed by
the Bush Administration for a quick vote, is already starting to get
rave reviews from the press, with the Sacramento Bee saying that protecting
the oceans of the world could be Bush’s “legacy.” The message to Bush
is that he should go out as a liberal and he may salvage some of his
reputation. But he will lose what is left of his conservative base.
President Reagan understood, UNCLOS creates another dangerous U.N.
bureaucracy, with a seabed “authority” to run ocean affairs, as well
as a court system and a global tax. It is a mechanism created by the
World Federalists as a major stepping stone on the road to world government.
It is also designed to make it easier for the “international community”
to thwart the exercise of U.S. military power in foreign affairs.
One of the main authors, Elizabeth Mann Borgese, was a socialist who
admired Karl Marx. But don’t expect our media to report these facts
to the American people.
Navy officials, acting clueless and completely in the dark about the
nature of U.N. bureaucracies, are actually lobbying on Capitol Hill
for Senate ratification of the pact. It is an example of how weak
the U.S. has become that our military officials have been reduced
to functioning as a lobbying arm of the Washington office of the U.N.
Of course, they are only doing what the President tells them to do,
and Bush says he wants immediate ratification of UNCLOS. Strangely,
two years ago, even when his administration was officially endorsing
the pact, Bush told conservatives he wasn’t sure why his administration
was supporting it.
then-Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, pondering a presidential run,
was studying the treaty to death and refusing to bring it up for a
vote. Conservatives applauded his courage. But a Democratic takeover
of the Senate has now provided the “opportunity” for Bush to promote
the treaty that President Reagan rejected. Reagan’s U.N. ambassador,
the late Jeane Kirkpatrick, was still rejecting it in 2004, supposedly
after the treaty had been “fixed.”
the importance of words and what they mean, a top State Department
official recently told a group of conservatives that he doesn’t like
to refer to UNCLOS as a U.N. treaty. He wants to avoid any mention
of the U.N. connection because he understands that the world body
is so corrupt that any mention of it alongside the treaty can only
hurt its chances of ratification.
no mistake: a vote for UNCLOS is a vote for increasing the power of
the U.N. You can register your opinion on the treaty by calling the
Capitol at 1-800-828-0498 and asking to be connected to the offices
of your senators.
another front, White House spokesman Tony Snow calls the North American
Union (NAU) a “myth,” despite the abundant evidence of White House
involvement in the development of a North American identification
card and security strategy. This is how the subject of national sovereignty
gets marginalized and dismissed. In this case, our “adversary press”
meekly accepts the White House line. Echoing Snow, Philip Dine of
the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has
written an article saying the NAU is based on an Internet “rumor”
with a “few grains of truth” that has led people to “an unsubstantiated
conclusion.” It is apparent that he didn’t attend the “North American
Law” conference which I covered, featuring wide-ranging discussions
on how the North American Free Trade Agreement is leading to the integration
of the economic, legal and political systems of the U.S, Canada and
week, Robert Pastor’s Center for North American Studies at American
University is co-sponsoring the “Model North American Parliament”
for students from the three countries. Pastor, a former Carter official
and Clinton adviser who persuaded Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn
to introduce a Mexico financial bailout bill, is not the type who
whistles Dixie. Wearing a lapel pin featuring the flags of the U.S.,
Mexico and Canada, he is an ardent advocate of what he calls the “North
concerned about our national sovereignty had better figure out a way
to get some media attention on this subject rather quickly because
we are losing our sovereignty on many fronts. From the North American
Union to the Law of the Sea Treaty to the illegal alien amnesty bill,
America as we know it is fading fast. The sad irony is that all of
this is happening under the auspices of a supposed conservative Republican
President who earned a reputation during the early years of his administration
of pursuing a “unilateral” foreign policy by snubbing the United Nations
on matters like adopting the global warming treaty and the International
Criminal Court and withdrawing from the ABM treaty so the U.S. could
pursue a missile defense.
things change. The Bush White House, Democrats and the media currently
work in concert to promote amnesty for illegal aliens as “comprehensive
immigration reform.” House Republicans like Reps. Edward Royce, Tom
Tancredo and Duncan Hunter see through it. And illegal aliens, of
course, don’t even exist in the world of politically correct journalism.
All of this can be explained by the fact that our elite journalists
are in the same class as those politicians who employ illegal aliens
as gardeners, landscapers, housekeepers and nannies. While exploiting
cheap labor themselves, they tell us the illegal aliens are simply
“undocumented workers” supposedly doing the jobs Americans won’t do.
all of these issues, it seems that Bush works better with liberal
Democrats than conservative Republicans. This might lead the cynical
to think that he wanted Republicans to lose power in Congress so he
could finally leave a “legacy,” in addition to the “No Child Left
Behind” federal education bureaucracy and the monumentally expensive
federal prescription drug program. But it’s impossible to believe
that Bush intended for the war in Iraq to go this badly just so he
could work with Democrats for his last two years. And that is mainly
why the Republicans lost Congress and risk losing the White House
in 2008. Bush could leave office as the President who failed to protect
the borders of the United States and Iraq. The only question is which
failure will prove more costly to our nation in the long run. On top
of that, he now wants the Senate to ratify the most comprehensive
treaty ever devised by the globalists. He is implementing the New
World Order talked about by his father.
political dynamics have put the sovereignty of our nation increasingly
at risk. If we have any hope of getting mainstream journalists to
critically cover these major issues of public importance, we have
to make the concept of American sovereignty and national identity
into something that is interesting to write and talk about. Of course,
this approach assumes that we have a media still capable of honest
political pressure from the grassroots to force both political parties
to deal with the survival of the nation may be the only way to get
the attention of the press. We are beginning to see that groundswell
developing on the subject of illegal immigration, as millions of Americans
register their outrage at Republicans and Democrats who fail to take
serious action to protect U.S. borders. The same outrage, if channeled
into opposition to UNCLOS, could also make an impression on the Washington
establishment and media. It will take 34 votes to sink UNCLOS but
Republican sources on Capitol Hill say they can count less than 10
currently against it. Time is running out on the independent, free
and strong America that so many sacrificed their lives for.
