Titanic remains protected by joint US-UK treaty signed by Pompeo

The remains of the Titanic will now be protected from people diving for valuables under a treaty between United States and the United Kingdom ratified last month by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, officials announced Tuesday.

Making the announcement in Belfast, where the once dubbed “unsinkable ship” was built, British Department for Transport and Maritime Minister Nusrat Ghani said the treaty gives the U.S. and the U.K. the power to grant or deny licenses to enter the hulls of the wreckage, or collect artifacts found outside.

“Lying two and a half miles below the ocean surface, the RMS Titanic is the subject of the most documented maritime tragedy in history,” Ghani said. “This momentous agreement with the United States to preserve the wreck means it will be treated with the sensitivity and respect owed to the final resting place of more than 1,500 lives.”

The U.K. signed the treaty in 2003, but Pompeo did not ratify it until late December.

This comes after RMS Titanic Inc., a subsidiary of Premier Exhibitions, filed a motion in U.S. District Court in eastern Virginia on Monday that it intends to retrieve items from the ship, arguing that the treaty has “no teeth” in U.S. law, The Guardian reported.

The company became the only group permitted to retrieve artifacts at the site in 1994 and has since collected 5,500 items, including a 17-ton section of the hull that was raised out of the ocean in 1998, Time reported. Some items have been auctioned off by Henry Aldridge & Son, including a water-stained letter, which sold for more than $163,000, and a violin, which sold for almost $1.5 million.

Lying beneath international waters, about 370 nautical miles south of Newfoundland, Canada, the RMS Titanic was not explicitly protected by any legislation since its discovery in 1985, the British Department for Transport and Maritime said in a press release. The treaty strengthens basic protections afforded to heritage sites under the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The RMS Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage from Southampton, Britain on April 10, 1912, for New York City with 2,223 passengers and crew on board. Five days later it struck an iceberg, broke apart and sank to the bottom of the ocean where it remained undiscovered for more than 70 years. Only 706 people survived, according to the U.S. Senate report on the disaster.

Andy Puzder: Trump, Republicans working to help our country — despite Democratic obstruction at every turn

It’s hard to imagine a more vivid or disturbing illustration of the situation in Washington, D.C. than what we have seen in Congress. While Democrats have kept up their never-ending crusade to remove President Trump from office, Republicans are helping the president fulfill yet another promise to the American people.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., finally abandoned her perplexing strategy of withholding the politically motivated articles of impeachment her party approved without a single Republican vote ending nearly a month-long delay. Democrats were downright giddy, and Pelosi herself marked the supposedly “solemn” occasion by handing out golden pens on silver platters to commemorate the historic moment.

While Pelosi’s hand-picked impeachment managers anxiously waited in the wings for their chance to formally present the articles to the upper chamber, though, the GOP-majority Senate was attending to more important business: approving the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a bipartisan measure that Pelosi had kept in legislative limbo for even longer than she impounded the articles of impeachment.

HARTLEY AND MAKRIDIS: TRUMP’S USMCA WILL CREATE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF JOBS AND BOOST GROWTH

The 89 senators who voted to send the USMCA to the president’s desk for a signature didn’t have much chance to revel in that accomplishment the way their House colleagues did after finalizing impeachment. Almost as soon as they finished voting, the lead Democratic impeachment manager, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., took the floor to recite his party’s partisan and highly politicized charges against President Trump.

More from Opinion

House Democrats were well aware that cheering for impeachment would make for bad optics, but they just couldn’t help themselves — after all, this is something most of them have been trying to achieve from the moment Donald Trump took the oath of office. Conversely, the Senate’s approval of the USMCA came with little fanfare, even though it’s one of the most consequential deals ever negotiated on behalf of the American people.

The USMCA corrects some of the most glaring deficiencies of NAFTA, eliminating or updating provisions that had placed American workers at an artificial competitive disadvantage for decades. Once the new agreement takes effect, it is projected to boost GDP by nearly $70 billion and support the creation of 176,000 new jobs across the United States.

The few Democrat senators who voted against this landmark trade deal are ideologues and hardcore partisans such as Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., both of whom defended their opposition to the USMCA by complaining that it failed to include provisions for combating climate change. Sanders added in a complaint that the USMCA failed to sufficiently protect workers — in Mexico, all the jobs and economic growth that will benefit American workers be damned. And this communist-supporting socialist is one of the leading Democratic candidates for president.

With the additional tax revenue from nearly 200,000 new gainfully-employed workers and tens of billions of dollars in new business revenue, perhaps Sanders and Schumer could have convinced Congress to set aside a few more dollars for their various solar panels or electric vehicle subsidies, which could have addressed their climate concerns without requiring them to vote against a deal that promises substantial benefits for hard-working Americans. Unfortunately, too many of today’s Democrats are more interested in waging war against President Trump than advancing the interests of their own constituents.

And, by the way, the USMCA provides significant protections for Mexican workers and has union support. NAFTA, which it is replacing, provided none.

Anyone who watched the Senate’s relatively brief session on Jan. 16 saw a clear example of the differences that separate our two main political parties. Republicans are committed to governing the country effectively by implementing common-sense policies such as the USMCA, while Democrats remain hopelessly preoccupied with an impeachment farce and their insatiable desire to seize power and bring down a duly elected president.

In the election later this year, it’s an image voters would be wise to keep in mind.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott: Americans are fleeing high-tax states that ‘hamstring’ capitalism

Greg Abbott: Americans are fleeing high-tax states that 'hamstring' capitalism Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc e9b25bfa-9f21-5095-93ac-a0406e332e9b article

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday said high-tax states are losing residents because they refuse to embrace a pro-capitalism agenda.

He said, “700,000 people fled California. When you consider the beautiful climate out there, it’s something else to imagine 700,000 fleeing there,” Abbott told “Fox & Friends” from Davos, Switzerland, where he is attending the World Economic Forum.

TRUMP ADDRESSES WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM IN DAVOS, TOUTS TRADE DEALS, US ECONOMY

Abbott explained further, “You have people fleeing Illinois, New Jersey, other states because they’re trying to get away from the things that hamstring capitalism and hamstring their ability to start and grow a business.”

As his impeachment trial was set to begin in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, President Trump took the stage in Davos and touted his administration’s policies for helping create a historic unemployment level and taking a new proactive stance toward trade.

He said recent trade agreements will represent a new model for the 21st century that is based on fairness and reciprocity. Trump cheered his landmark United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) and the China trade deal, highlighting their potential benefits to Americans.

Abbott touted Texas as having the top-ranked gross domestic product and being the fastest growing economy in the United States because the state follows suit with Trump’s “embrace of the value of capitalism.”

“We want businesses to come into the state of Texas. We want fewer regulations; lower taxes, we want to make it easy for businesses to be able to succeed because we understand something in Texas that it seems like some other states do not and that it is when your business succeeds in Texas, we as a state succeed.”

Abbott also praised Trump for promoting such sentiments in Davos instead of “apologizing for American exceptionalism.”

Trump’s positive outlook at Davos seems a world away from Democrats in Washington who want to see him removed from office. His impeachment trial proceedings were set to begin later Tuesday with the expectation they will stretch well into the night on Capitol Hill.

During impeachment trial, Trump portraying ‘exact image’ he wants: Ari Fleischer

President Trump is portraying the exact image he wants to throughout the Senate impeachment proceedings, former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer said Tuesday.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with host Sandra Smith, Fleischer said that the president’s focus on the economy during his trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland was “a perfect almost split screen” to that of news conferences from House Managers and Senate Democrats ahead of day one of the Senate impeachment trial under Chief Justice John Roberts.

HOUSE IMPEACHMENT MANAGERS TARGET TOP TRUMP DEFENSE ATTORNEY CIPOLLONE, CLAIM HE IS ‘MATERIAL WITNESS’

“I think Washington is consumed with this partisan leverage game of ‘one party hates the other, the other party hates the other back,’ and that’s what you see in the Schumer news conference while the president is conducting the nation’s policies and business,” he stated.

“I think that’s the exact image the president wants to portray and should portray throughout the next couple [of] weeks as impeachment drags on.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told reporters Tuesday that he plans to “offer amendments to fix…many flaws” of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s impeachment resolution and that his first proposal is to subpoena documents and communications.

Additionally, the House Managers blasted the proposed trial rules as “rigged,” just hours before proceedings are slated to resume on the floor.

However, the president stuck to his “America First” agenda, touting a “blue-collar boom” in a speech to the global elite.

“America’s thriving, America’s flourishing, and yes, America is winning again like never before,” Trump said.

The president reeled off a number of accomplishments for the labor force under his leadership, pointing to the more than 7 million jobs created, helping push the unemployment rate to 3.5 percent, its lowest in 50 years.

“The American dream is back, bigger, better, stronger than ever before,” he said.

Fleischer told Smith that, while the president has not yet responded to Democrats’ comments, “it wouldn’t surprise [him] if he just goes after it on Twitter or says something at some point later.”

“But,” he added, “I just think policy and running the country is his best foot forward, and leave this Washington noise and nonsense to others.”

“That’s what impeachment has become; it’s just become the typical partisan games that everybody’s used to and tired of. Let the president rise above,” said Fleischer. “The only thing that really matters is getting beyond this because it’s a complete waste of time.”

Joe Montana guarantees his team will win Super Bowl LIV: ‘You heard from me first’

Joe Montana has both dogs in the Super Bowl LIV fight.

Montana on Monday guaranteed victory for his team. He posted a photo on Twitter showing his San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs jerseys in his home with several trophies.

However, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, he didn’t exactly pick whether the 49ers or Chiefs would win the game at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.

SUPER BOWL LIV TIME, DATE AND EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE GAME

“It’s hard to pick between,” he told the newspaper. “Yeah, we live here in San Francisco, so there’s a little bit of a different feel, just because you don’t have that touch with Kansas City all the time. But there’s a place in my heart for them both. Kansas City was so good and accepting of us coming in there. It’s not easy, and there’s a lot of expectation.

“But like Jen [his wife] says, I’m guaranteed my team will win.”

Montana said while he feels a connection to the Chiefs and 49ers, he also has a soft spot for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

SUPER BOWL LIV IS ANOTHER CHAPTER IN MIAMI’S LONG HISTORY OF HOSTING NFL TITLE GAME

“Here’s how it goes. I played in San Francisco, played in Kansas City, but I grew up in Pittsburgh when they were winning Super Bowls when I was a kid. So you can add the Steelers to that list of confusion. In fact, I actually tried to go to Pittsburgh before I got to Kansas City. Tried to just go home.”

He got the Chiefs as far as the conference championship during the 1993 season and to the AFC Wild Card in the 1994 season, but never to the Super Bowl.

Discussion Thread: Senate Impeachment Trial – Day 2: Vote on Resolution – Opening Arguments | 01/21/2020 – Live 1:00pm EST

Today the Senate Impeachment trial of President Donald Trump begins debate and vote on the rules resolution and may move into opening arguments. The Senate session is scheduled to begin at 1pm EST

Prosecuting the House’s case will be a team of seven Democratic House Managers, named last week by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff of California. White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and Trump’s personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow, are expected to take the lead in arguing the President’s case. Yesterday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released his Rules Resolution which lays out Senate procedures for the Impeachment Trial. The Resolution will be voted on today, and is expected to pass.

If passed, the Resolution will:

  • Give the House Impeachment Managers 24 hours, over a 2 day period, to present opening arguments.

  • Give President Trump’s legal team 24 hours, over a 2 day period, to present opening arguments.

  • Allow a period of 16 hours for Senator questions, to be addressed through Supreme Court Justice John Roberts.

  • Allow for a vote on a motion to consider the subpoena of witnesses or documents once opening arguments and questions are complete.
