Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 04, 2012
Friday June 1, 2012 The George Jarkesy Show released a petition against the Law of the Sea Treaty (L.O.S.T.). This treaty is waiting to be approved by the U.S. Senate Foreign Affairs and Relations Committee to then be passed on for approval by the Senate. It is currently opposed by several key Republicans including Sen. John McCain, Sen. James Inhofe, Sen. Jim DeMint and Sen. James Risch.
Jarkesy stated, “If this treaty is ratified it would mean restrictions on the United States that politicians and voters couldn’t object to. This treaty will also hinder national security by excluding provisions against ships on terrorist missions or carrying terrorist weapons.” Jarkesy also expressed concern that, “The US Navy will be faced with legal complications when executing national security missions and that deep sea mining and offshore fishing will become complicated. As it stands, half of US royalties from offshore mining and drilling will be required to go to the UN Seabed Authority.”
The conservative talk show host whose main focus is the finance stated, “The George Jarkesy Show stands by the belief that this treaty will create a backdoor to cap trade and threatens the American economy, homeland security, and power as a nation. If you agree please visit The George Jarkesy Show Website and sign the petition.”
