Congressional Black Caucus’ Dangerous Violent Rhetoric:  Declares ‘War’ on Racist Tea Party

READER COMMENTS:  A Tea Party org. I belong to will kick out anyone using any racial slurs. In fact we welcome blacks who believe getting back to constitution, create jobs, spend wisely, and take the credit cards from the Administration. See my next post and learn

The KKK was the terror arm of the Democrats and is no longer a threat because the Democrats discovered that instead of using threats and intimidation to keep black people from voting Republican, they could demonize and pander to get votes for Democrats. The overall goal is still the same: Keep black people dependent, powerless and angry in perpetuity.

The Lefties will STILL call the Tea Partiers racist regardless. It's their MO.

. . . more than 70% of the parents who took advantage of the vouchers transferred their children from the government-run public school system to private schools, mainly Catholic schools who have an established history and network in the state.

Apparently, the parents believe the public schools are a bad choice for their children, and when public and private schools are given equal rights, parents overwhelmingly prefer to stay away from the government education. This trend has been observed with every voucher system in the United States so far; where vouchers were available for students from low-income families, the majority of the families preferred private schools. The Indiana state system of school vouchers introduced a few weeks ago is the by far the largest of its kind in the nation. And it only confirmed the trend.

Lawrence Solomon: Science Getting Settled -- 8/26/2011

In this chamber, 63 CERN scientists from 17 European and American institutes have done what global warming doomsayers said could never be done — demonstrate that cosmic rays promote the formation of molecules that in Earth’s atmosphere can grow and seed clouds, the cloudier and thus cooler it will be. Because the sun’s magnetic field controls how many cosmic rays reach Earth’s atmosphere (the stronger the sun’s magnetic field, the more it shields Earth from incoming cosmic rays from space), the sun determines the temperature on Earth.

The hypothesis that cosmic rays and the sun hold the key to the global warming debate has been Enemy No. 1 to the global warming establishment ever since it was first proposed by two scientists from the Danish Space Research Institute, at a 1996 scientific conference in the U.K. Within one day, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Bert Bolin, denounced the theory,

Rush Limbaugh -- 8/29/2011 --
We can and must Oppose Obama with Open, Honest Conservativism.

Rush Limbaugh and William Shatner -- 12/2009 interview

Conservatism is not opposition.  Conservatism is not obstructionism.  Conservatism is action.  It's positive.  Conservatism is respect for tradition, the institutions and traditions that made this country great and keep it so.  And why can't we just be against the president?  If there's ever been somebody it's worth being against, it's this guy.  That's what this is all about.  I am totally opposed to this guy.  You can't just be against the president?  Yes, you can.  Not only yes, you can, yes, you must.  Anybody who cares about this country as founded must be against this president. 

What was the Democrat platform but being against President Bush during all those years?  The Comparisons are eerie here.  They said same thing about Reagan and that's why people started saying, "Would you just get the consultants away from him and let Reagan be Reagan."  Do you remember that?  Because the same type of people started trying to tone Reagan down.  Other people said, "Let Reagan be Reagan." 


Patriot Update -- Obama Routinely Bypasses Congress -- 8/30/2011

The administration is using bureaucratic procedures to constrict legal energy extraction the Democratic-led Congress failed to pass the “cap and trade” law to regulate carbon-dioxide, said Kish. Environmentalists “see this presidency as their one chance to reach their green-energy nirvana and insert themselves into every aspect of the economy,” he said. “For a bunch of lawyers, all they seem to do is figure out ways to get around the law,” Kish said.

Republicans and their allied advocacy groups say they’re frustrated by the administration’s use of regulations and the courts to bypass laws, and by liberals’ passivity, but don’t see any fix except a Republican in the White House.

Right Side News – 8/27/2011 –  Lew Rockwell

In the market economy, there is a long-run tendency for errors to be corrected and replaced by different practices that uplift the people. In government, there is a long-run tendency to keep trying the same thing again and again, no matter how often or how badly it fails. Keynesianism is, after all, as Joseph Salerno points out, the "economics of state power." And that guides us to the foundational problem: the monopoly entity that rules and devastates society for its own benefit.

Ecofascists v. Humanity: the anti-DDT scam

This is a long article with videos that is worth the read.   The EPA is not in the Constitution.

Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, which is really the Employment Prevention Agency.  This bureaucracy cares nothing for the fact that unemployment is itself a serious health hazard—“increasing mortality rates, causing physical and mental ill-health and greater use of health services,” according to a medical journal article.

The EPA is in effect a fourth branch of government, combining both legislative and executive powers. 

Dr Thomas Sowell, economist and Patriot columnist, calls this an “end-run” around the Constitution, replacing “We the People” with “We the Bureaucrats”.

For example, the EPA has explicitly contradicted the Constitutionally-mandated legislative branch—Congress—in their mad crusade to declare CO2 a poison rather than the plant food and component of exhaled air that it is.

Wall Street Journal – 8/26/2011  STEPHEN MOORE

The two presidents have a lot in common. Both inherited an American economy in collapse. And both applied daring, expensive remedies. Mr. Reagan passed the biggest tax cut ever, combined with an agenda of deregulation, monetary restraint and spending controls. Mr. Obama, of course, has given us a $1 trillion spending stimulus.

By the end of the summer of Reagan's third year in office, the economy was soaring. The GDP growth rate was 5% and racing toward 7%, even 8% growth. In 1983 and '84 output was growing so fast the biggest worry was that the economy would "overheat." In the summer of 2011 we have an economy limping along at barely 1% growth and by some indications headed toward a "double-dip" recession. By the end of Reagan's first term, it was Morning in America. Today there is gloomy talk of America in its twilight.

One program for recovery worked, and the other hasn't.

The Reagan philosophy was to incentivize production—i.e., the "supply side" of the economy—by lowering restraints on business expansion and investment. This was done by slashing marginal income tax rates, eliminating regulatory high hurdles, and reining in inflation with a tighter monetary policy.

There is something that is genuinely different this time. It isn't the nature of the crisis Mr. Obama inherited, but the nature of his policy prescriptions.

What exactly have Mr. Obama's deficits gotten us?

The Witherspoon Institute -- Maggie Gallagher -- 8/23/2011

Maggie Gallagher writes a long article about marriage, gay relationsihps, children born out of wedlock.  This is worth the read.

Presidential candidates for the 2012 election need to know that marriage is not only an essential issue in this race; it is a winning issue.

This shift means something: when the issue is framed as one of fairness or equality, Americans are now reluctant to disagree with gay marriage, but when it is framed as a moral or family issue, they continue to adhere strongly to traditional norms of marriage.

As Ken Blackwell recently put it, marriage is not a wedge issue but a bridge issue, creating strange bedfellow coalitions never before seen in American politics across lines of race, creed, and color.

Feminists Have a Tantrum

The New York chapter of the National Organization for Women and the New York Civil Liberties Union are squealing about a 64-page decision in a workplace class-action suit brought by their friends in the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Judge Loretta A. Preska of the U.S. District Court in Manhattan tossed out this case . . .  of workplace discrimination because the bosses failed to pretend that pregnant employees and those who took time off for maternity or other purposes were really doing the same work as those who worked faithfully fulltime on the job.

. . . the judge wrote, "'J'accuse!' is not enough in court. Evidence is required."  

 "There's no such thing as work-life balance. There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences."

. . . for years the feminist movement has carried on a strenuous campaign to move all homemakers out of the home ("a comfortable concentration camp," in Betty Friedan's words), and into the workplace on the argument that caring for babies is not a worthy occupation for an educated woman.

BLOOMBERG – Bradley Keoun and Phil Kuntz – 8/22/2011

Long article with lots of links about the mess that started it all.

Data gleaned from 29,346 pages of documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act and from other Fed databases of more than 21,000 transactions make clear for the first time how deeply the world’s largest banks depended on the U.S. central bank to stave off cash shortfalls. Even as the firms asserted in news releases or earnings calls that they had ample cash, they drew Fed funding in secret, avoiding the stigma of weakness

As the crisis deepened, the Fed relaxed its standards for acceptable collateral. Typically, the central bank accepts only bonds with the highest credit grades, such as U.S. Treasuries. By late 2008, it was accepting “junk” bonds, those rated below investment grade. It even took stocks, which are first to get wiped out in a liquidation.

‘Willingness to Lend’

“What you’re looking at is a willingness to lend against just about anything,” said Robert Eisenbeis, a former research director at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and now chief monetary economist in Atlanta for Sarasota, Florida-based Cumberland Advisors Inc.

The Fed’s liquidity lifelines may increase the chances that banks engage in excessive risk-taking with borrowed money, Rogoff said. Such a phenomenon, known as moral hazard, occurs if banks assume the Fed will be there when they need it, he said. The size of bank borrowings “certainly shows the Fed bailout was in many ways much larger than TARP,” Rogoff said.

There are 15 Questions the evolutionists cannot satisfactorily answer--click to the PDF file. 

Natural Selection
Multi-Cellular Life
Where are transitional fossils?
Where are scientific breakthroughs due to evotution?
Why is evolution, a theory about history, taught as if it is the same as operational science?
Why is evolution, a religious belief, taught in science class?

READER COMMENT:  It takes a lot more “faith” to believe in evolution than it takes to believe that “God created”. Darwin himself said it was a theory, not a fact.
My question is, if we came from the sea and developed into men, women, animals etc. where did that first cell or cells come from that could so perfectly develop into eyes to see, ears to hear, lungs to breathe, stomach to digest food, etc.?? There has to be a superior being there to make such a cell or cells. And also, if we developed from the ape, why is there no half ape/half men here for us to see? Just a few thoughts!!! Evolution is another way to sidetrack our minds away from the CREATOR!!

I don’t have ENOUGH faith to believe random chance created life as we know it, then STOPPED to the extent we don’t REGULARLY observe indisputable evidence of evolution.
To believe in a creator, I must accept ONE unproven premise(the existence of God). To Believe there is NOT a creator, I must believe so many unprovable premises that I don’t even know how to express the number.

Money Morning -- Martin Hutchinson -- 8/23/2011

GDP increases any time the government spends money. It doesn't matter if that money is actually put to productive use or not - GDP rises nonetheless.

It's obvious why big-government Keynesians would like this calculation: It substantiates their claim that government spending stimulates economic growth.
In the real world, however, this makes no sense. Indeed, none of the examples above actually add to economic welfare.

So how can you get an accurate measure of economic growth?

Arithmetically, there's a simple solution: You take Line 1, "Gross Domestic Product," in the Bureau of Economic Analysis' GDP Table and subtract from it Line 21, "Government Consumption Expenditures and Gross Investment."

That gives you a net number, which we can call "gross private product," or GPP. It's a measure of all the output produced by the private sector. In general, it will underestimate national "welfare" unless government is really bad. But it will give you a much better idea of the output the market economy is producing.

Godfather Politics – 8/22/2011 – Bojidar Marinov

That’s when the Federal Reserve steps in and makes new money – out of thin air – and loans it to the banks. The banks are now “solvent.” The also own the houses. Business as usual; the banks win.

Except that there are $1.2 trillion in the economy that were created out of thin air. Which means inflation. Which means everyone suffers – from the subprime homeowners evicted from their houses, to those who never took any loans, to the companies who built the houses. Everyone is left with dollars in their hands that are getting more and more worthless because the value of the dollar is falling.

Could the FED do something else? No. That was why it was created: to cheat everyone out of their money while protecting the banks and the federal government against default and failure, no matter what.

Patriot Update – 8/20/2011 – Laura Ingraham on The Factor
Video with Laura Ingraham, Rep. Allen West and Rep. Charles Rangel.  Laura asks:  Did it work?

READER COMMENT:  The Democratic Party and their politics of Liberalsim has destroyed Black families with welfare. Someone please tell me how liberals look out for Black Americans? By championing releasing black criminals back into their communities? By standing up for rioters? By getting promising black college students into schools they’re likely to flunk out via Affirmative Action?

By making parasitic buffoons like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson into representatives of black Americans in the eyes of most of the country? The biggest obstacle black Americans face today is not racism; it’s the paternalistic, “You poor thing! You need our help to make it day-to-day” attitude of liberals that has shattered the black family in a way that even slavery and Jim Crow laws couldn’t.

READER COMMENT:  Yes, a long time back, say 40 years and beyond, the blacks were strong church goers, and adamant about love, charity, morals and ehtics. but what went wrong?………….The civil rights movement tangles “equality” with the values of “old” and came out a stinking rose. All of a sudden, a bad movement arose, spurred on by the Democrats and the blacks lost their way. Now they are locked onto welfare, food stamps, lawlessness, broken homes, out of wed-lock children, and no God and CHURCH……….It’s a shame, but government didn’t help their plight. In fact, it created it……………ghettos, low education, no ambition, poor education. Back in the day, in Florida, 40 years ago, we interacted with blacks and they were wonderful friends and neighbors. Things, over time, have changed for the worse. And all of the liberal policies have hurt the blacks.

With this approach, because standard, long term, market investment returns are so much higher than the implicit returns paid by completely noninvested, pay-as-you-go Social Security, all workers who exercise the personal accounts would receive more in benefits through the personal accounts earning standard long term returns than the Social Security benefits they replace.

The Washington Examiner – Union Cash Cutoff has National Implications – Scott St. Clair – 8/22/2011

For the 2011 recall election, WEAC spent $500,000.
The nearly $40 million all of labor spent on the recall elections, where just over 450,000 votes were cast, comes out to about $89 per vote. Of that, $5 million was local union money with the rest coming from national union sources.

WEAC isn’t alone. Government-sector unions across Wisconsin are cutting staff and trimming expenses.

It goes deeper. Wisconsin is the 16th most unionized state in the country with 355,000 workers, 14.2 percent of total employed, belonging to unions. Of these, nearly half, more than 175,000, are government workers. Nationally, there are more government workers in unions than private-sector workers. Annually, the private-sector numbers decline, while the government-sector numbers go up.

Kick the props — the union shop and dues check-off — from government-sector unions and you kick the props from more than half of what’s left of the American labor movement that represents a scant 11.9 percent of American workers in total. In Wisconsin the props are gone, and the movement is listing worse than the Titanic.

Soon more workers will have the right to decide whether to join a union and face compulsory deduction of dues from their pay.   That will shut off the automatic millions of dollars flowing to union leaders’ pockets and campaign war chests.

Public unions spend the taxpayers' money.
Private union members work for contractors who must mak a profit.  No profit, no job.
Maureen Martin helps explain this situation for us.

SOMEWHAT REASONABLE -- The Evils of Class Warfare --Maureen Martin -- 8/21/2011

That comment is what prompted Sean’s telephone call. He wanted to know how could I favor trade unions but not public unions.  I said, Sean, you say you’re an electrician, an unusually skilled one. A private employer would value your services and be motivated to pay you enough money to keep you from quitting and getting a job down the street from his competitor. But if he pays you too much, he will have to raise his prices and he’ll go out of business. Then you won’t have a job, and you don’t want that. So there are these limits on both sides built into the union negotiation process. Sean agreed.

But that’s not true for public employee unions, I said.  Politicians negotiate these contracts using other peoples’ money – the taxpayers’ money. Government has no competition, so it can always raise “prices” – that is, taxes. And the politicians know if they give the union employees large raises, some of that money will come back to them in the form of campaign contributions. So there is no incentive for either side to limit their demands.

A black political entrepreneur from Pine Bluff, Ark., K. Carl Smith is helping the tea party change its complexion while trying to bring racial unity to the political arena.

The reformed Democrat began educating Americans about the life and lessons of Frederick Douglass in 2009. With his work, he seeks to break down manufactured racial political barriers.

Smith’s agenda is focused on supporting constitutionally limited government, holding elected officials accountable for defending our liberty, teaching the life-empowering values of Frederick Douglass and promoting a fair political dialogue.

News with Views -- Michael LeMieum -- 8/21/2011

Where is President Obama's allegiance?  To what country?

This was based upon the idea of a singularity of allegiance. The position being that if a person whose father was born outside the country and the son inside the country it would put the son in a position of dual allegiance between his birth country and the country of his father. Vattel stated it this way: “I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

“At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country, of parents who were its citizens, became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further, and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction, without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case, it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient, for everything we have now to consider, that all children, born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction, are themselves citizens." [5] (Emphasis added)

So wherein lays the deception you may ask? The deception lies in that over 500 politicians, and countless government and academic lawyers would have you believe that there is no way to determine the meaning of a phrase used by our founders in the Constitution of the United States, the basis of the Law of our Nation, and operative for over two hundred years. Yet, I and scores of other lay people all around the nation have been screaming this simple truth and no one listens. In truth I totally believe they know exactly what is going on, but it does not serve their purposes and to them the end justifies the means.

Here we go again:  another article about BIRTH CERTIFICATE FORGERY OF POTUS

After a meeting with members of the local Tea Party and Dr. Jerome Corsi, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has announced that he will launch an official investigation into the authenticity of the birth certificate and whether or not Obama will legally be allowed to be placed on the 2012 ballot in Arizona’s most populace county.

American Thinker -- 8/20/2011 -- Obama and the Class Envy Card -- Steve McCann

Check the chart in the article.  Because of uncertainty, new regulations and IRS adjustments, the number of millionaires and billionaires decreases. Because they decrease in number, revenue is reduced to the national treasury. 

The Obama tactic of calling for more taxes on the rich is purely political, and intended to focus anger at the wealthy and to demagogue the Republicans.  He and his party are desperate to avoid answering for their failed policies.   It is the most crass and mendacious of tactics and one befitting a person with no character and integrity that he would pit Americans against Americans for his personal gain while further damaging the economy and the future of succeeding generations.

Only a few reader comments have been copied.  There are more on line and they illustrate and illuminate the opinions of average folks around the world.

READER COMMENT:  The Dems have been doing this forever and it has served them well.  There have been far more Democratic majorities in Congress than Republican over the past 100 years.  Do we expect them to give up what works?  The sheeple respond to this rhetoric.  It doesn't work for the country, but it works for power hungry Dems.  It won't work this time because the Marxist in Chief is very unpopular, but it's not going away.
READER COMMENT:   Wonderful analysis.  I was unaware of the reality of your tax sysytem.  In the UK when we dramatically raised the taxes on the "rich" the actual amount raised fell in half from what they anticipated.  So the powers-to-be raised the VAT tax and as many other taxes as they could which fell most heavily on the middle-class who could not escape paying them. 

Class warfare is a cottage industry here and is in part responsible for the recent riots.  As your economy gets worse and good paying jobs harder to find (as Mr.McCann so aptly points out) due to the loss of manufacturing, the Left and people like Obama will precipitate violence by their class envy rhetoric.  Trust me when I say--once that cat is out of the bag there will be hell to pay in your wonderful country.   He and his fellow-travelers must be stopped.

READER COMMENT:   Envy is one of the most toxic emotions there is.   Envy makes a weak practitioner of it turn a blind eye to everything that is good enough in his life to constantly pursue the never achievable concept of "more".   There will always be someone who is paid more and has more, just like there are always people who know more and do more.  And by and large, there is a correlation between those who know or do more and those who are paid more and have more.   This is not a 100% rule, but in a relatively functional capitalist society, it is strongly correlated.    While there is a relative concept of being underpaid, it can be remedied provided there is a robust enough economy to provide options for those with talent.  

But if envy is used to buy votes that put social engineers in power whose only stated goal is equal outcomes, then there will be no connection knowing more and doing more and being paid more and having more.   Such things will be determined not by talent but by far cruder methods like group membership, such as party, gender, race, religion, etc....

READER COMMENT:   I'm sorry garbage in, garbage out; conceptually, the system is wrong as is most of the conclusions. First, forget the assumptions and let's begin with basics. A progressive tax system has only one function (besides raising revenues for an insatiable beast) and that is the concept. It is not democratic (small [d]) it is punitive. Do the rich get more free services than the poor? Is their defense greater than the lowest tax rate? Obviously not. Then there is the little question of who pays the highest bracket and what are their options for not paying their "fair share." Why do you suppose there is so much lobbying for special advantages? Why do you suppose that Obama claims he is going to raise one billion dollars? And, how did we end up with four branches of government instead of three? And, two of the four are beyond the reach of citizens altogether. What four?
The bureaucracy of the various agencies for one thing have their own tax mechanism, they merely call it a fine. It is not rare that a similar tax is levied by the courts. Further, let's look at the various deductions (and I will guarantee for every one congress abolishes, two or...

Right Side News -- S&P and the Bilderbergers:  All Part of the Plan?   8/18/2011

[A]fter the market close on Friday August 5th, we received word that S&P CEO Deven Sharma had taken control of the ratings agency and personally led the push for a U.S. downgrade. There is a lot of evidence that he has deliberately tried to trash the U.S. economy. Even after discovering that the S&P debt calculations were off by $2 trillion, Sharma made the decision to go ahead with the unethical downgrade. This is a guy who was a key contributor at the 2009 Bilderberg Summit that organized 120 of the world's richest men and women to push for an end to the dollar as the global reserve currency.
[T]hrough his writings on “competitive strategy” S&P CEO Sharma considers the United States the PROBLEM in today’s world, operating with what he implies is an unfair and reckless advantage. The brutal reality is that for "globalization" to succeed the United States must be torn asunder . . .
It seems the Bilderbergers are less interested in governing the world than in owning the world.

The idea behind each and every Bilderberg meeting is to create what they themselves call THE ARISTOCRACY OF PURPOSE between European and North American elites on the best way to manage the planet. In other words, the creation of a global network of giant cartels, more powerful than any nation on Earth, destined to control the necessities of life of the rest of humanity.

That base of power was found in the private global banking system.

The world company acquires assets by preventing governments from issuing their own currencies and credit. Money is created instead by banks as loans at interest. The debts inexorably grow, since more money is always owed back than was created in the original loans.  (For more on this, see here.) If currencies are not allowed to expand to meet increased costs and growth, the inevitable result is a wave of bankruptcies, foreclosures, and sales of assets at firesale prices. Sales to whom?  To the “world company.”

How Broken Families Break the Bank -- The Fiscal Times -- Liz Peek -- 8/17/2011

According to a study released last fall by the Brookings Institute, the rise in children born out of wedlock is “assuring the persistence of poverty, wasting human potential, and raising government spending.” In its Strengthening Fragile Families study of single-parent households, the Brookings researchers wrote that “the most important conclusion … is that these families play a central role in boosting the nation’s poverty rate and that they and their children contribute disproportionately to many other serious social problems.” 

Should the country be alarmed by these trends? According to Benjamin Scafidi, an economist at Georgia State’s Bunting School of Business, fractured families, divorce and unwed childbearing cost taxpayers at the least $112 billion per year, some $70 billion is in federal outlays, the balance borne at the state and federal level. His work is based on evidence that single-parent households tend to have a higher propensity towards poverty, which boosts spending for food stamps and Medicaid, for instance. He also concludes that young people raised by single parents are more likely to get into trouble, more often developing drug problems or ending up in jail.

Get Educated:  (The U.N. Wants to control your property rights) –
International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives – -- this site may be difficult to navigate.

“Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs”

. . .this simply-worded, positive-sounding definition hides the agenda that can only lead to a breathtaking transformation of society. According to its advocates, to achieve the goal of meeting today’s needs with out compromising the needs of the future requires massive amounts of land and natural resources to be permanently locked away from use; that means preservation not conservation. More importantly, according to them, it requires an entirely new way of thinking about how society is organized.

In order to fully comprehend the magnitude of the changes required to enforce Sustainable Development, a much more descriptive and honest definition is necessary. One such as this: Imagine an America in which a specific “ruling principle” is created to decide proper societal conduct for every citizen. That principle would be used to consider regulations guiding everything you eat, the kind of home you are allowed to live in, the way you dispose of waste, perhaps even the number of children you may have, as well as the quality and amount of education your children may receive. As I said, Sustainable Development encompasses every aspect of our lives.

This one makes your jaw drop -- For 30 years the Senate refused to ratify a treaty, but President Obama signed an executive order over a year ago that no one in Congress has challenged.  President Obama does not need elected representatives to pass law--he just makes up his own.

News with Views -- Michael LeMieux -- 8/17/2011

A year earlier, 2009, President Obama directed the creation of the “Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force ” who was tasked to come up with a recommendation for how to best manage the ocean resources and waterway usages. Their final report read quite similarly to the, surprise -- surprise, Law of the Sea Treaty mandates.

Upon receiving the final recommendations of the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force President Obama signed into law Executive Order 13547 and instituted a run around of the requirement to have all treaties ratified by the Senate and creating law outside of the legislature.
