Just saw this.
Federal Govt assumes control over Great Lakes, by executive order. - Dateline Zero
Yeah. Taken by the Feds and handed to the UN
It's worse than you think:
(vii) exercise rights and jurisdiction and
perform duties in accordance with applicable
international law, including respect for and
preservation of navigational rights and freedoms,
which are essential for the global economy and
international peace and security;
(ii) cooperating and exercising leadership at
the international level;
(iii) pursuing the United States' accession to
the Law of the Sea Convention; and
And most lovely:
(c) In carrying out the provisions of this order
and implementing the Final Recommendations, all actions
of the Council and the executive departments, agencies, and
offices that constitute it shall be consistent with applicable
international law, including customary international law,
such as that reflected in the Law of the Sea Convention.

Is there any doubt that we've been taken over?
Does this applies to the Great lakes only or to any water source govt chooses?
The order includes the great lakes and coastal areas and specifically mentions the law of the sea.
I think coastal areas may have already been subject to the law of the sea and the order locks down the great lakes to clear up any ambiguity.
JMHO - not a an expert on int'l law.
They have made it so that the maritime jurisdiction extends onto land from every waterway. There is no longer a separation between land and sea. I used to have all of the maritime laws memorized, but I am too tired to look it up for you, besides I am not in a good mood. It's not like this comes as any surprise, it's been this way for decades.
It also firms up the role of the EPA and Homo land Security. Those two are trending towards becoming big catch-all authorities within the Fed. Govt. I'm sure it's by design.
Between those two and HHS via the new healthcare bill, you won't be able to urinate without govt. permission.
Well there you go --you created water, so you are subject to admiralty law.
Stay clear of the puddle!
Fits government reasoning perfectly.
