Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

LOST - a treaty and a term for..

clueless conservatives, who despite having a free internet for fifteen years now and glaring inconsistencies between rhetoric and action, just can't figure out what is going on here.

This just in from Instapundit: Elizabeth Totten writes:
TRENT LOTT AND RICHARD LUGAR ARE “LOST”:  My jaw dropped open on this one.  Apparently former Republican Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott has sold out and abandoned his own principles.  He is now lobbying for Senate ratification of the LOST (Law of the Sea Treaty), which he vehemently opposed during his time in the Senate.  Pay close attention to this one, folks:  LOST is a progressive dream, representing an significant potential loss of U.S. sovereignty if ratified.  It is nothing more than a U.N. wealth (and power) redistribution program in sheep’s clothing.  Perhaps this is one reason why Indiana Republican Senator Richard Lugar is expected to lose in today’s Republican primary there:  He shockingly supports LOST.
There's nothing shocking about it, it should be expected. He's just doing his job. First, let's look at the bipartisan tag team effort to implement the LOST treaty:

  • Was pushed on Reagan, who rejected it outright.
  • The Clinton's didn't get a chance to really push it, it would seem there was a watered down 1994 agreement that was made. 
  • In 2007, George W. Bush tried to lean on the democratically controlled Senate for ratification of this treaty that would put 70% of the Earth's surface under UN control.  
  • The Joint Chiefs under George W.  supported it according to this interview with Cliff Kincaid (yes, the man that takes Scaife money, but he does it to follow some things of value) This should not be surprising to those who understand that they're CFR members.
  • Which brings us to the present and the Obama administration of course supporting anything that takes America down a notch. And we've got a couple of high-ranking Republicans joining in. 
"A 1943 poster produced by the U.S. Office of War Information pushes for support of the United Nations, a term used after the 1942 Declaration of the United Nations to refer to the Allies. The term would come to be applied to the organization that exists today with the signing of the United Nations Charter in 1945". via Temple University

Let's just say it like it is: these people all work, indirectly, for the same organization.  They are working toward a single goal, and that is NOT to keep their oath of office. Lot's of people say that there's no difference between republicans and democrats, well, I'm here to prove it to you by naming names and citing connections. Maybe this would help Ms. Totten get her jaw off the floor.

Since leaving office, Trent Lott has lobbied for Northwest and Delta, the huge defense contractor Nothrup Grunman, and then you've got this LOST thing. He was also made a board member of the defense contractor, EADS North America. Sure is easy being on the board of a corporation after writing lots of laws to benefit them. Makes you think that they just give out board memberships as tokens of a job well done.

It's also a little ironic that his brother-in-law, Richard Scruggs, has given heavily to prominent Democrats and John McCain, but I repeat myself.  Mr. Scruggs is the richest man in Mississippi, trial lawyer par excellence, and currently serving jail time for bribery.

Other posts I've done to clue you in as to why Ms. Totten is "lost" and Dick and Trent are just workin' for their banksters overlords:
