Friday, Nov. 12th, U.S. State Department Visited My Maritime Treaty Post 4 times Totaling 1 hour, 10 mins Duration!

Saturday, November 13, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Did I surprise the U.S. State Department with my post about a future maritime treaty for arming merchant vessels and their crew (in addition to armed contract security) to defend against pirates on the high seas?

I uploaded that post titled Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Sets the Stage for New Maritime Treaty on the Human Right to Armed Self-Defense Against Piracy on the High Seas, on Wednesday, November 10th at 9:56 PM. The U.S. State Department was logged reading that post on Friday, November 12 at 10:09 A.M., just a day and a half (36 hours) after I uploaded the post?

On Thursday, November 11th at 12:48 A.M. I got an unknown reader from Verizon Internet Services’ ISP in Alexandria, Virginia. That’s just 2 hours, 42 minutes after I posted that article. Coincidence? Or is there a Government cyberbot involved? Later that morning, at 5:13 A.M., another reader from Verizon Internet Services’ ISP was logged reading that same article but this reader was located in Washington, DC. 

Those are the facts. Do I dare speculate that the U.S. State Department was alerted to my post? And by who? Read on for more information on the Second Amendment as an international human right for individual armed self-defense.

The tables below are from my webcounter’s log.

Can I safely speculate that because the U.S. State Department spent 1 hour, 10 minutes in 4 visits on my maritime treaty article confirmst that the U.S. State Department is actually working on setting the stage for a new maritime or human rights treaty for armed merchant vessels and crew to defend against pirates especially when B. Lynn Pascoe, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs told the Secretary-General of the United Nations that warships alone will not solve the problem of Somali piracy?

INTER-AMERICAN COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS

The admission that warships cannot successfully control Somali piracy has a direct comparison to Jessica Lenahan’s (formerly Gonzales) human rights complaint against the United States at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) resulting from the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion in Castle Rock v. Jessica Gonzales, 545 U.S. 748 (2005) alleging violations of human rights under the American Declaration on the Rights and Duties of Man. For a general review see WikiPedia’s entry. For the July 24, 2007 IACHR Report No. 52/07 declaring the claims in Jessica Lenahan’s petition to be admissible in respect to Articles I, II, V, VI, VII, XVIII and XXIV of the American Declaration on the Rights and Duties of Man. Jessica Lenahan’s petition is still in the determinitive process but it is destined for trial at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.

I have my own human rights complaint at the IACHR, Hamrick v. United States, Petition No. 1142-06, which is still pending. My human rights complaint is the flip side to Jessica Lenahan’s human rights complaint. Her’s resulted from a dependency on the government for protection through restraining orders of a local court. Mine is a dependency on the human right and the Second Amendment right to armed self-defense. The Second Amendment is a vital component to the Common Defence Clause of the Preamble to the Constitution. Therefore the Second Amendment is part of the Common Defence. And the Common Defence in conjunction with Justice helps secure Domestic Tranquility. The following list of my violated human rights are from the American Declaration on the Rights and Duties of Man:

Article I Right to Life, Liberty and Personal Security.
Article II Right to Equality Before Law.
Article V Right to Protection of Honor, Personal Reputation, and Private and Family life.
Article IV Right to Freedom of Investigation, Opinion, Expression and Dissemination.
Article XIII Right to the Benefits of Culture.
Article XVII Right to Recognition of Juridical Personality and Civil Rights.
Article XVIII Right to a Fair Trial.
Article XXIV Right to Petition.
Article XXV Right of Protection from Arbitrary Arrest.
Article XXVI Right to Due Process of Law.
Article XXIX Duties to Society.

Friday, November 12th I received a letter dated November 4, 2010 from Santiago A. Canton, Executive Secretary for the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, (No. 8 in the photo above), acknowledging receipt of the email I sent to Commissioner Dinah Shelton (United States) (No. 1 in the photo). In that email was attached my PDF file of my Amended Admiralty/RICO Act Complaint filed October 29, 2010 at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia as new evidence of violations of my human rights. That same email was also sent to Lanny A. Breuer, Assistant Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice, John G. Perren, Acting Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI Field Office, Washington, DC.

THE HUMAN RIGHT OF ARMED SELF-DEFENSE

The human rights question here is when a government cannot, will not, or refuses to protect an individual from a clear threat of violence, personal injury, or death by murder does that individual have the human right to armed self-defense regardless of whether it is domestic violence or piracy on the high seas. I believe the Inter-American Court of Human Rights will decide that there is a human right to armed self-defense. I further believe that the human rights of the aggressor, whether it is the estranged ex-husband or the estrange ex-wife in the domestic violence theater or pirates on the high seas, do not have equal standing with the human rights of their victim. I believe that there will be an international human rights standard for rules of engagement for the individual human right of armed self-defense and that it will become customary international law of human rights that the aggressor, such as pirates, forfeit their right to claim human rights protection when they engage in piracy and armed robbery on the high seas.

This proposed rules of engagement will restore law and order on the high seas and alleviate the international crisis of prosecuting suspected pirates because the proposed rules engagement in a new maritime treaty for armed merchant vessels and crew will have its detterence factor. And for those pirates who ignore that deterrent they will have to breach an armed vessel’s defenses to get aboard. From that point it becomes a 50/50 chance of success in capturing the vessel and their crew. In any event the pirates still face the risk of capture or be killed in self-defense for the crime against humanity. Those captured pirates will be prosecuted for piracy and armed robbery. But the number of pirates making it to the prosection stage will be reduced through deterence and armed self-defense.

And even if piracy under a new maritime treaty for armed merchant vessels continues to be a regional or global problem the United States can resurrect the long dormant Letters of Marque and Reprisal to let the maritime industry assist in the war against pirates on the high seas as the Common Defence Clause of the Preamble to the Constitution was originally intended.

INVITATION FOR THE NRA, SAF, GOA, JPFO, et al

If the head honchoes at NRA HQ and all the other Second Amendment groups and individuals were really smart and really loyal to the Second Amendment they would see the light in my international maritime and human rights approach to the Second Amendment and support my Admiralty/RICO Act lawsuit against the United States with representation, funding, publicity, favorable Op-Eds and commentaries because I believe it would be far more efficient to secure our Second Amendment rights from the top, down instead of the useless incremental bottom, up method.

I have already attracted the attention U.S. State Department because it appears that I struck a nerve. I have also attracted the attention of the U.S. Department of Justice and several other federal agencies. This is not only the NRA’s golden opportunity, but it is the golden opportunity for the SAF, GOA, JPFO, and every other Second Amendment advocacy group and individuals to support my Second Amendment case.
