Obama has a plan to ruin the seafood supply chain with regulations and it’s gonna cost ya.
Secretary of State John Kerry has found a new cause now that he’s fresh off his mid-East failures. He is directing federal agencies to work on developing a program to combat seafood fraud upon orders from the imperial president.
This follows up Mr. Obama’s proclamation that he would implement his climate change agenda using a pen and a phone. It also follows Mr. Obama’s seizure of a huge swath of the Pacific Ocean for the government, making it inaccessible for drilling and fishing.
In a recent delusional moment, Kerry said climate change is the “world’s most fearsome” weapon of mass destruction. He added that “the science of climate change is leaping out at us like a scene from a 3D movie. It’s warning us; it’s compelling us to act.”
Al Qaeda isn’t. The Taliban isn’t – we send them back out into the field to kill US soldiers. ISIS isn’t the world’s most fearsome WMD. A science that is completely unresolved that might affect us a hundred years from now is more urgent than terrorist groups threatening to destroy the US and Israel.
Barack Obama is hell-bent on fighting seafood fraud as part of his front on the climate change war he told West Point cadets about at their recent commencement exercises.
It will mean more regulations and higher prices.
If there is an opportunity to hurt businesses, Mr. Obama won’t let it pass him by.
He is passing his own version of The Law of the Sea Treaty using a pen and phone and this is one notch in his belt though he has only just begun.
He wants to “ensure that seafood sold in the United States is legally and sustainably caught and to combat the negative impacts of seafood fraud on the United States.”
“It shall be the policy of the United States for all executive departments and agencies (agencies) to combat IUU fishing and seafood fraud by strengthening coordination and implementation of relevant existing authorities and, where appropriate, by improving the transparency and traceability of the seafood supply chain. All agencies and offices charged with overseeing the seafood supply chain and verifying the authenticity of its products shall implement and enforce relevant policies, regulations, and laws to ensure that seafood sold in the United States is legally caught and accurately labeled.”
“There is established, as a subcommittee reporting to the National Ocean Council established by Executive Order 13547 of July 19, 2010 (Stewardship of the Ocean, Our Coasts, and the Great Lakes), a Presidential Task Force on Combating Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing and Seafood Fraud (Task Force), to be co-chaired by the Secretaries of State and Commerce, or their designees.”
“Membership. In addition to the Co-Chairs, the Task Force shall include designated senior-level representatives from: (a) the Department of Defense;
Why would they need the DOD for this?
It is a war according to him. Fishermen and consumers of seafood will be the enemy.
Just to give you an idea of how the government can be trusted handling something like this – in case you don’t remember the armed raid of the Gibson factories over guitar frets or the Sackett family land seizure or the raid on the Bundy ranch – listen to the following video:
