    1. "The Law of the Sea Treaty now has 34 senators opposed and thus will not have enough Senate votes for ratification, a key opponent of the treaty announced Monday.

    2. The Law of the Sea Treaty, which entered into force in 1994 and has been signed and ratified by 162 countries, establishes international laws governing the maritime rights of countries. The treaty has been signed but not ratified by the U.S., which would require two-thirds approval of the Senate.

    3. ...impossible to reach the 67 votes that would be required to ratify the pact, which Sen. John F. Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat and Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, had wanted to bring to a vote later this year.



    4. Critics such as Mr. DeMint argue that the U.S. is subjecting its sovereignty to an international body and said the pact would require U.S. businesses to pay royalties for resource exploitation, as well as subject the U.S. to unwieldy environmental regulations as defined in the treaty.

    5. Mr. Kerry held three hearings this year on the treaty. The first hearing brought together a rare joint appearance by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta, as well as Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who testified in favor of ratifying the treaty."
    Law of the Sea Treaty now dead, DeMint says - Washington Times

    Note the internationalists named....


    What great news for those who oppose global governance, and the loss of United States sovereignty.



    Now only have we stemmed the tide....pun intended....but it provided hope that this event, coupled with the impending change in administrations in Washington presages an end to a century of Progressivism on the march.



    I believe I can hear Soros crying....

    This makes it even better...from April:


    "1. "President Obama’s ambitious plan for stepped up government regulation of the oceans includes an unreported effort to cede U.S. oceans to United Nations-based international law, KleinOnline has learned.

    2. States the report: “The Task Force strongly and unanimously supports United States accession to the Convention on the Law of the Sea and ratification of its 1994 Implementing Agreement. The Law of the Sea Convention is the bedrock legal instrument governing activities on, over, and under the world’s oceans.

    3. Until his CIA appointment in 2009, Panetta co-chaired the Joint Ocean Commission Initiative, which is the partner of Citizens for Global Solutions in a push to ratify U.S. laws and regulations governing the seas.

    4. The Joint Ocean Commission Initiative Leadership Council includes John Podesta, president and CEO of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress, which is reportedly highly influential in advising the White House on policy.

    5. CGS (Citizens for Global Solutions)is a member organization and supporter of the World Federalist Movement, which openly seeks a one-world government. The World Federalist Movement considers the CGS to be its U.S. branch....the establishment of a global federal system of strengthened and democratized global institutions with plenary constitutional power accountable to the citizens of the world and a division of international authority among separate global agencies."

    If John Kerry wanted it, it had to be bad for America.

    Wow....I was so pleased.

    The Progressive juggernaut stopped in it's tracks.

    From "Cowards," by Beck and Balfe...."Soros has claimed that he has donated over $7 billion to his Open Society organizations."


    Seems that not every pol is for sale! Kind of restores one's faith....
