What would Reagan do? On the Law of the Sea Treaty, we know the answer
Such developments only serve to reinforce the concerns President Reagan rightly had about the central, and abiding, defect of the Law of the Sea Treaty: its effort to promote global government at the expense of sovereign nation states–and most especially the United States. One of the prime movers behind LOST, the late Elisabeth Mann Borgese of the World Federalist Association (which now calls itself Citizens for Global Solutions), captured what is at stake when she cited an ancient aphorism: “He who rules the sea, rules the land.” A U.N. publication lauding her work noted that Borgese saw LOST as a “possible test-bed for ideas she had developed concerning a common global constitution.”
Charlie Gibson might be shown the back door if he keeps it up:

And the Iraqi government says civilian deaths across Iraq fell by half last month.
By training their powerful spotlight on the chaos gripping Iraq, the anchors were arguably contributing to the political downfall of a president who had seemed to be riding high when he won his second term.

Sharia law through the Med School Back door:
Muslim medical students refuse to learn about alcohol or sexual diseases:
Some Muslim students claim studying sex and alcohol related diseases is ‘offensive’.
Professor Peter Rubin, chairman of the GMC’s education committee, said: ‘Examples have included a refusal to see patients who are affected by diseases caused by alcohol or sexual activity, or a refusal to examine patients of a particular gender.’
Spare them their feelings and kick them out of med school, then.
