From the charter for the Finance Authority of Maine
I have been examining and reporting on Maine legislation for some time now, watching the nature of what our legislature has constructed unfold.. The above statement is found in the charter for the Finance Authority of Maine. It is a most astounding statement because it constitutes a legislative decree about the character of a certain individuals and associations which essentially ordains them into sainthood. By legislative decree individuals and associations that personally benefit through the activities of the Finance Authority Of Maine are motivated only by the purest of motives to serve the "public benefit" Any private benefits that confers upon them selves is pure chance of circumstance!- Or if not that, then the statement above provides that personal benefits realized by said individuals and/or associations are not to be a subject of investigation. They are "deemed" by an act of the legislature to be acting solely in the service of the "public benefit".
What type of government defines human character by legislative decree? Certainly not that created by the founders of the United States Constitution. The Federalist Papers recorded the process which resulted in the United States constitution where in Publius took the full range of human character into consideration- from the best to the worst - and after considering all of that, designed a system of checks and balances. This contrasts with Marxism which projects that the state will "wither away" which can only come about after the state has transformed human character into a homogenous pod which tolerates no conflicts of interest.
While The philosophy stated in the charter for Finance Authority Of Maine deems that any benefit going to private individuals, as a result of the activities of the corporation, is incidental to the public benefit. the intent of that statement is further clarified in the charter for the SEGF. ( signed into law by Angus King) There we are told in the section titled "conflicts of Interest" that Title 17, section 3104 does not apply to representatives of the SEGF. Title 17, section 3104 is a general law which states:
3104. Conflicts of interest; purchases by the State
No trustee, superintendent, treasurer or other person holding a place of trust in any state office or public institution of the State shall be pecuniarily interested directly or indirectly in any contracts made in behalf of the State or of the institution in which he holds such place of trust, and any contract made in violation hereof is void. This section shall not apply to purchases of the State by the Governor under authority of Title 1, section 814. [1975, c. 771, §164 (AMD).]
The Maine state constitution, Article IV, Part Third, Section 14, says that all corporations, however formed are subject to general Law. General law, Title 17, section 3104, states that government employees cannot financially benefit from contracts made on behalf of the state. and the charter of the SEGF ( Small Enterprise Growth Fund since 2014 known as the Maine Venture Fund) exempts the SEGF from being subject to general law, Title 17, section 3104.
So, not only is the SEGF unconstitutional in the fact that it was chartered by special act of legislation to serve the purposes of the state, a violation of Article IV, Part Third Section 14, of the Maine state constitution, which prohibits the legislature from chartering corporations for any purpose other than municipal purposes, but it also violates the same article a second time when it unconstitutionally releases the SEGF from being subject to a general law.
10% of the capitalization of the SEGF comes from the Maine state taxpayer. The SEGF promotes itself as creating jobs that pay higher than two thirds of the jobs in this state.
The other night I listened to Paul Ryan explain to Greta Van Susteran why Harry Reid has not required the Senate to submit a budget for three years in violation of the United States Constitution. The reason is that the constitution does not provide for a penalty for not doing so. The culture in Augusta operates under a similar set of principals but what Augusta has done in transforming our constitutional system of government is even worse than not submitting a budget.
That is why we need a movement to bring a higher public profile to contenders for Olympia Snowe's seat such as Andrew Ian Dodge. like Charlie Summers, Dodge will vote to repeal Obama Tax but unlike Summers, Dodge is not inbred into the Augusta culture. As Secretary of State, Summers could have demanded that the vast network of corporate instrumentalities of the state be subject to the same general laws to which corporations in the private sector are subject, but by virtue of the fact that state corporations are not listed at the Bureau Of Corporations, that does not appear to be the case. It appears that Summers just went along with the existing status quo within the Augusta culture which routinely over rides the Maine State Constitution with statutory laws, thus transforming Maine's constitutional system of government into something entirely different. Maine needs a Senator from outside the Augusta system.
UTube Of Henry Lamb speaking on the Green Religion and Agenda Twenty One, which is the do-coded meaning of the "public benefit" that the SEGF serves, which was abundantly apparent in 2009 when I attended the Juice Conference wherein I was introduced to the SEGF, which inspired my legislative investigation into Maine's vast network of unconstitutional state corporations. As I watched the semi-finalists , it was clear that they all knew the template. All that is really required is to include a direct and very obvious service to the green agenda (to satisfy "public benefit") and to say that one's exit strategy is to sell the business (so that the high growth investors can make their profit). This explains why brevity was so important to this process.
As I listen to this tape, I recognize that the process here in described is vary advanced in teh state of Maine, including the unelected overlords that are the "brains" of the once free people of Maine.
This is a link to a very informative utube on Agenda Twenty One, which is the format for "public purpose" followed at the Juice conference where I first encountered the SEGF. Most of the semi finalist fulfilled this agenda. It's an easily packaged agenda with readily identifiable earmarks that satisfy the"public benefit" requirement, which then frees up the high growth investor to "incidentally make a profit" What the speaker describes about how Agenda Twenty On is being implemented pretty is consistent with what I have been reporting in my blog.
There will be a talk on Agenda Twenty One given by Rosa Kouri Monday, August 13 at 6:30pm at The Baptist Church, Waldoboro (71 Grace Ave)
