Obama Aborts Congress, Constitution, With New Ocean Agency

Herr Barack Obama, the new American Dictator, has promulgated some horrendous stuff, but none so unconstitutional as Executive Order 13547.

Far worse even than the Health Care Mandatory Penalty Act, which makes criminals out of every citizen, Executive Order 13547 circumvents Congress, the Courts, and the U.S. Constitution by dictatorially declaring all land and waters of this country to be chattel owned by the President in fulfillment of UN Agenda 21.

Executive Order 13547 — Stewardship of the Ocean, Our Coasts, and the Great Lakes
[here] enacts new law without consent of Congress, creates a new agency shielded from both Congress and the Federal Courts, appropriates monies, and gives the new agency broad control over every square inch of America.

Executive Order 13547 begins with the phrase:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, …

and proceeds to overstep that authority, to declare new powers to the Presidency, and to violate the Constitution with impunity. Congress did not pass any law directing the President to establish this new agency. He did it on his own, in violation of the Constitution.

Executive Order 13547 creates something called the National Ocean Council [here], which is to develop “coastal and marine spatial plans” that will “ensure the protection, maintenance, and restoration of the health of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems and resources”.

Any trickle of water that eventually reaches the ocean, and any puff of air that drifts from land over the sea, is now subject to the whims and diktats of the National Ocean Council.

The National Ocean Council will be co-chaired by unelected political appointees not subject to confirmation by Congress. It will have the power to override existing laws and force the Secretaries of of State, Defense, the Interior, Agriculture, Health and Human Services, Commerce, Labor, Transportation, Energy, and Homeland Security, the Attorney General, the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (all subject to confirmation by Congress) to bend to the will of the Council.

Executive Order 13547 pledges to conform to “applicable international law, including customary international law,” but is itself in direct violation of U.S. law. Herr Dictator Obama has declared “international law” to be superior to national law, in direct contravention of our Constitution and in obeisance to UN Agenda 21.

Last week the House Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs held an oversight hearing on “Empty Hooks: The National Ocean Policy is the Latest Threat to Access for Recreational and Commercial Fishermen” [here].

Hello Congress, this issue is far bigger than just fisherman, for gosh sakes. Time to catch a clue!

At any rate, one testimony [here] was especially insightful, that by accomplished environmental attorney George J. Mannina, Jr. [here]. A quote:

Advocates of the National Ocean Policy will assert that the Executive Branch could promulgate regulations under its existing delegated authority to do some or all of these things. That may or may not be the case, but Executive Order 13547 does not take that approach. Instead, it creates, via the National Ocean Policy, a new set of requirements with which existing statutes are to be consistent, and then places these new standards beyond judicial review. This effectively constitutes the enactment of new legislation that violates the separation of powers set forth in the U.S. Constitution.

Moreover, when Congress has delegated legislative authority, it has done so to specific departments and agencies. Executive Order 13547, and its National Ocean Policy, effectively amend each of these statutes by changing the Congressional delegation of authority from an individual department or agency to a collective of at least 23 departments and agencies.

Barack Hussein Obama and his Radical Left minions want you to believe that environmental concerns trump your Constitutional rights. Don’t believe it. It isn’t true. We cannot and will not allow them to abort our Constitution no matter what excuse they offer.
