Could you elaborate on the violation of maritime law based on the legal-gambling and Roger Green example in a bit more detail?

Wendover, you're wrong. Dear Leader Emperor Orange says we are the only country so broken that we grant citizenship to children born. Emperor Orange knows all. He has a big brain and the best words.

Sometimes people use maritime law to their advantage. Back in the 60's, Rock and Roll music was banned in England, so there were many ships setup in international waters just outside of England that would broadcast Rock n Roll music over the radio that was aimed at England. Since they were in international waters they were not considered illegal since they didn't fall under English law.

But what citizenship is taken if the boat is illegal and is getting away with it?

Panama doesn't have fewer people than Minneapolis? I'm confused, can someone explain? Google tells me that Panama has a population of 4.099 million and that Minneapolis has 422,331. If you look at the entire Minneapolis metro area and not the city, it is still 3,600,618.

I would say that. In territorial waters war ships have full autonomy, so their countries’ law is applied in every case. For cargo and cruise ships its the same (law of their registration country) unless: The crime extends to the coastal state, the crime creates prejudice to the coastal state, the captain of the ships asks to local authorities their help, the intervention of the coastal state authorities is in order to stop drug dealings. So on board a ship even docked in a harbor the ship’s country law is applied.You missed other zones of the sea as internal waters, ecological protection zone, archeological zone and the continental shelf zone. I love your videos😃😃 greetings from Italy

Everyone is born under maritime law in the us technically because you are born through a “water canal” so they can write you off as an agricultural asset. This way they are able to tax your corporate name that is in all caps so that you are able to be indebted to them. Yet people don’t know about this and is very hard to write off debt because going alone against the government is not plausible with all the bullshit hoops you’d have to jump through.

~ 🌊 🛳 👮 📖 📚 👨‍⚖️ ~ *Question: why would it be legal for Sea Code to have immigrant workers 12 miles off shore when that would still be in the in the contiguous zone?*
gimmethegepgun (6 days ago)
Labor laws don't fall under customs, pollution, taxation, or immigration, so they wouldn't apply in the contiguous zone. The foreign workers part would probably run afoul of immigration laws though.

You didn't talk about the great grand banks pseudo war. Were Canada decided to protect the grand banks outside the 200 mile zone. They confiscated a New Bedford fishing boat and almost went to war with Spain.

Just a heads up, marijuana is NOT LEGAL in the Netherlands, check for yourselves. It's just not enforced. So you could not have shitloads of weed on a ship from the Netherlands...

I still don’t know the right words to express my gratitude to the Great Dr. EMUA. After been diagnosed of HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2014, i was given so many health prescription and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until i found testimonies of Great Dr. EMUA in an online research and on Facebook, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him, but i later did and he opened up to me and told me what was involved and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, i was cured from herpes by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that herpes can be cured, from the bottom of my heart I'm truly grateful,i pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support, You can Email him via his email dremuahelphome@outlook.com or dremuahelphome@gmail.com for easy and fast communication you can also call or add him on whats-app with this number +15185546034, one thing i love most about DR EMUA is honestly

I don't think having a US passport is a good idea, you can never escape the stupid tax system where ever you live in the world.

There is NO SUCH THING AS INTERNATIONAL LAW or MARITIME LAW; not in the sense that we understand laws anyway. There are only treaties and agreements between countries. There is no international law because there is no authority which can make them and compel their adherence by all countries. If a powerful country like the USA decides that it its territorial waters is 500 km not 12km and it is willing to use deadly force including 12 Super Carriers, 75 AEGIS destroyers and 50 Nuclear Attack Submarines to defend and enforce this insistence, other entities can either accept it or they can declare war and lose. Even when there are treaties and conventions, countries can and routinely do withdraw from or unilaterally break treaties and renounce conventions. When that happens all the legal wrangling is bullshit and it all comes down to who has the military and economic might to get their way. In a world made up of countries, laws do not really extend beyond borders or the realm of sovereign control. The world stage is all about countries bullying one another, where the biggest and baddest bullies get the goods and the weak and stupid get shafted.

I think the drinking age in international waters is actually more laid back than you described. When I flew Lufthansa from Frankfurt to DC, I was offered wine and beer as a 16 y/o minor with no questions asked. Legal in Germany where the plane is registered, but not in the States. I'd imagine citizenship matters are taken more seriously, however hahaha.

3:38 is wrong they get a DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) actually!! Which Trump is trying to rid of now. Pregnant women try to have their kids in the states so they can stay and when they get on Amercian land/water they try to induce labor.

Fun fact: the modern UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (which is different from Maritime Law, dealing more with territorial waters, this video seems to confuse the two) is primarily enforced by the most powerful navy in the world, the United States Navy, which is more powerful than all other navies in the world combined... Despite the fact that the United States Congress never ratified our signing of the treaty...

I learned about maritime law from my captain when commercial fishing. We got in a argument and he bound and gagged me and put me in the fish hold for 3 days. Funny thing is he didn't violate any law doing so.
