Say “No” to Buddies and Beneficiaries, Governor Must VETO B Lab’s AB 361
Contributions to this report from Stephen Poole and Wynne Coleman.
There are big bills pending in California right now that will ultimately wipe out independent and private businesses. One of them is AB 361 which establishes “California B Corp Benefit Corporations,” a program for buddies and beneficiaries who agree to advance the principles of Sustainable Development and Agenda 21.
The vehicle for passing this bill is California B Corp AB 361. It has already passed the California Senate and Assembly. It’s on its way for the Governor to sign but there is still time to veto it.
Because B Corps are legally recognized by government for their willingness to undertake Agenda 21 Sustainable objectives, state and local entities will be encouraged to allow these companies to go to the front of the line for licenses, permits and tax incentives. The companies that refuse to become benefit corporations will have to wait.
As more companies allow themselves to be “certified” or rated by third party entities (such as B Lab) for their pro-sustainability practices, the pro-sustainability companies will be given incentives to work with others of like mind and will come to favor each other (sort of like a brotherhood of businesses). Those who do not practice sustainability will be excluded. You don’t need to peruse it, just skim down the pages of this B Lab – B Corps 2011 Annual Report and you will see how the B Corps are already working with each other and cheering each other on.
Of course, eventually, it will be the big companies that get the favors from government by going along with Agenda 21 sustainability practices, including the idea of benefit corporations. These favors would not only be in the form of tax breaks or incentives, but also include special permissions to build on or set up business in prime locations. Large companies have the financial means to implement the agenda on a large scale that the little companies may not be able to accomplish. Corporate monopolies will result.
Government uses these elite businesses to accomplish their social engineering ideals and also to acquire more power without having to answer to voters.
Recently it was announced that Green Plus – Institute for Sustainable Development, is offering small rural business ways to become certified in sustainable practices so they can qualify for business loans and other programs. This is another way some businesses, even small ones, think they can profit from going sustainable.
Stephen Poole has written a comprehensive 4 part article entitled,
Benefit Corporations: Expansion of the Public-Private Fascist State, Part 1 Part 2, Part 3, Part 4
Wynne Coleman has a one page article on B Lab with easy links to explore for other States involvement and also a commentary on the connections between Benefit Corporations, Public Private Partnerships, Sustainable Development and U.N. Agenda 21,
B Labs Benefit Corporations Won’t Benefit You
There are national groups promoting these corporations in many states. To see the list of States, including California, where B Corp legislation has been proposed or passed go to: http://www.bcorporation.net/publicpolicy
If Governor Brown signs this legislation it will be a giant step into the unknown. The text of the bill doesn’t even try to define what the standards will be — only that there will be standards, and that those standards ARE NOT subject to the approval of the voters but instead a yet-to-be-named “third party.” In short, the governor should not sign into law a bill that has the potential to give economic carte blanche to a group or organization that the public has neither vetted nor approved.
Say “No” to Buddies and Beneficiaries.
The Governor must VETO B Lab’s AB 361.

(WEARECHANGE TV) KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Some river bottom property owners say they received a letter from the Army Corps of Engineers’ Kansas City district office asking them if they want to sell their land.
KMBC’s Micheal Mahoney reported that the letter is angering some of the people who received it because some of them are fighting for their land from a flood they believe the Corps caused.
The letter reads: “The Corps is currently seeking willing sellers.” It is part of a 15-year-old corps plan to buy up river property or obtain easements.
It should be noted that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers claim to be wanting to enhance wildlife for species like the pallid sturgeon, so this seems in line with Agenda 21and the EPA.
(WEARECHANGE TV) The facts now are clear and irrefutable:
Barack Obama is ineligible to be President of the United States of America because he is NOT a natural born citizen.
Section 1, Article 2 of the U.S. Constitution states that only a “natural born citizen” can be President.
In 2008, when the Democrats raised the question of whether GOP presidential candidate Senator John McCain was a natural born citizen, the U.S. Senate looked into the matter and decided McCain is one.
Facebook has rolled out a new feature that relies on facial recognition technology to automatically identify users in photos posted to the site and recommend people that others can tag in these images.
The feature, which was already live in the U.S., is now being launched in “most countries,” according to Facebook, and has led privacy advocates to chastise the social network.
The video below is from a Rochester, New York, neighborhood meeting in support of Emily Good, the woman arrested for videotaping a traffic stop from her front yard. So Rochester police sent four squad cars to ticket the cars of meeting attendees who parked more than 12 inches from the curb. Yes, they even brought a ruler.
On May 12th, A Rochester woman was arrested for taping a traffic stop in front of her 19th Ward Home. She was standing in front of her house recording several officers’ search of a man’s car with a hand held recording device when the arrest happened. Officer Mario Masic, Rochester Police Department, executed the illegal arrest. Emily Good was charged with a criminal misdemeanor.
There was only one problem, videotaping a police officer in public is perfectly legal in New York state — and the woman was in her own front yard, which was private property. The arrest report of the incident also contains an apparent discrepancy from what is seen in the woman’s own video.
