Senate should vote NO to S-787 Water Takeover Act

Senate should vote NO to S-787 Water Takeover Act and HR 3534 CLEAR Act

S-787 – Clean Water Restoration Act – will give the federal government jurisdiction over all water, everywhere, as well as jurisdiction over all activity that affects water wherever it may be.  This would give to the federal government effective control over every square inch of land in the United States.  It must be stopped. 

HR 3534 CLEAR Act – 

HR 3534 is a permanent roadblock to American energy development and will drive American companies out of the Gulf, delay future drilling, increase dependency on foreign oil, implement climate change legislation and youth education programs; but most important, it mandates membership in the Law of the Sea Treaty without the required two-thirds vote to ratify it in the U.S. Senate. For this reason alone CLEAR must be voted down.

Assesses a Conservation Fee of $2 per barrel of oil and 20 cents per million BTUs of natural gas for all leases on Federal onshore and offshore lands (Section 802).  This will drastically increase America’s energy prices. 

The CLEAR Act repeals the Energy Policy Act of 2005: removes royalty incentives, removes royalty relief for deep-water production and directs the Secretary of the Interior to establish fees for leases. This will not only severely hamper drilling but also is a backdoor Cap and Trade legislation. It will kill jobs and increase consumer prices. 

It prohibits the following authorities from developing a fishery management plan, which is the way we have been doing business: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Secretary of Commerce and Regional Fishery Management Councils.

In other words, current management of our oceans within the United States will be superseded by the National Ocean Council, comprised of some of the most radical environmentalists in our Administration, co-chaired by Nancy Sutley, White House Council on Environmental Quality and Dr. John P. Holdren, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

All life in these waterways and all adjacent land masses will be directly affected by this legislation. 

Decisions will be guided by the Rio Declaration of 1992, requiring no scientific proof of threats or damage to justify corrective action, more regulations and fines.

The true intent of the CLEAR Act is to change the way we do business with regard to our land, oceans, coastal areas and Great Lakes.  All air space above the oceans, what operates in, through, on or is derived from underneath the water, will be subject to taxes as a world resource to the United Nations – Agenda 21. These areas will no longer be owned and managed solely by the United States, as they are newly defined as a global revenue, “social justice” source per the Law of the Sea Treaty.
