LOST and Found: Senate Moves Toward Ratification of U.N.'s 'Law of the Sea Treaty'

Obama presented this bill in Dec. 07 -

Agenda 21 is after all fresh water - great lakes, lakes, ponds, watersheds, wells, springs, rivers, streams, rainwater, bird-baths, cisteryns - ALL FRESH WATER.
This LOST treaty includes ban on small weapons - that's what Obama isn't going after openly...

If anybody

can't see what's coming by this time, then they're not breathing.
