||Was Lincoln wrong when he said you can't fool all the people
all the time? In an election with more tricks than a three card
monte game, the biggest trick of all may have been getting
millions of pro-lifers to vote for GW Bush - a candidate whose
family has been in the vanguard of the pro-abortion and
eugenics movements since the early years of the 20th Century.
Pro-choice or pro-life, there's bad news in store from this
administration for living things generally. GW Bush's
appointment of pro-life advocate John Ashcroft as Attorney
General is intended to divert attention from this
administration's eugenics-based population control agenda.
Many of the corporate-funded right-wing foundations
promoting family values in America -which are the sponsors of
GW Bush and virtually all of his cabinet nominees - are
advocates of eugenics, or as it is variously known, population
control or scientific racism. The true picture of their own and
the Bush families' views on abortion and race - and of their
direct links to groups like Planned Parenthood - is one of the
least reported on news stories of the past few decades.
At the dawn of the Twentieth Century American industrialists
became alarmed at the rate of population growth among
minorities and the poor. Millions of immigrants were arriving
each year in America, dramatically changing the racial and
ethnic profile of this nation. At the same time, southern Blacks
were migrating north in unprecedented numbers.
Fearful of the emerging union and social rights movements, of
minorities vastly outnumbering white Americans or of a
Marxist revolution, these industrialists saw eugenics as the
solution. Men like Rockefeller, Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie,
JP Morgan, Andrew Mellon, Averell Harriman, the Pioneer
Fund's General W. Draper and Prescott Bush began funding a
movement to promote abortion, sterilization and euthanasia as
a means of addressing this emerging "problem".
Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a driving
force in the eugenics movement. [For some incredibly racist
quotes about blacks and Jews from Sanger's eugenics
publication, Birth Control Review, see
The Harriman family, Prescott Bush's Wall Street partners in
financing Nazi Germany, built the Eugenics Records Office at
Cold Springs Harbor NY-which is today the site for the
eugenics-based Human Genome Project. ["The Bush family
fortune came from the Third Reich...the Rockefellers had
financial connections to Nazi Germany". -John Loftus, former
US Justice Dept. Nazi War Crimes investigator and President
of the Florida Holocaust Museum quoted in the Sarasota
Herald-Tribune 11/11/2000 >
Eugenics advocates present themselves as nobly trying to
improve the human race by culling out undesirable traits like
low IQ or genetic disease but there has been nothing noble
about the history of eugenics. While eugenics in the Third
Reich focused on killing Jews, Gypsies, the mentally ill and the
disabled, the targets for genetic "improvement", sterilization or
elimination in America have been African Americans, Native
Americans, Latinos and the poor.
From their Wall Street offices these same wealthy industrialists
provided the financial basis for the Third Reich and what they
hoped would become a worldwide corporate-fascism [See: The
GW Bush Gang: IG Farben 2001 >
http://Baltech.org/lederman/spray/ <] . At the same time in the
U.S. they were able to use their influence to get 25 States to
pass eugenics laws. Hitler proudly claimed he based his racial
laws directly on the parallel American eugenics movement.
[See: > http://vector.cshl.org/eugenics.html <].
The clearinghouse for the eugenics philosophy in America has
been the Pioneer Fund, started in 1937 by General W. Draper.
After helping build the Third Reich with his Wall Street friends
Prescott Bush, Allen Dulles and Averell Harriman, Draper was
appointed Undersecretary of the Army following WWII and
placed in charge of the economic reconstruction of Germany.
To give a sense of the extent to which these industrialists
played both sides in WWII - with the full knowledge and
support of the U.S. government - none of the IG Farben
factories or the Ford, GM, ITT or Alcoa factories owned by
American industrialists in Nazi Germany were bombed during
the war despite being the industrial base of the Nazi war effort

the Twentieth Century by Christopher Simpson, 1993;

RIGHT, AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY by Russ Bellant].
Following the Holocaust it was necessary to disguise eugenics
as something more politically acceptable. Many of the ensuing
US, European and U.N. social programs directed at promoting
birth control, vaccinations, insect control and "modern"
methods of farming in the Third World are actually
thinly-disguised eugenics programs. There is a mounting body
of evidence that AIDs was also one of these programs.
The following excerpt contains key quotes on eugenics by a
Pioneer Fund co-founder that illustrate their strategy of making
it appear beneficent. The roots of the anti-desegregation,
anti-affirmative action and anti-welfare movements in the U.S.
like the pro-abortion movement discussed below are firmly
planted in eugenics and in the work of the Pioneer Fund.
January 21, 1996
"Frederick Osborn [a co-founder of the Pioneer Fund], the key
American eugenics strategist, displayed his usual shrewdness
in 1974. "Birth control and abortion," he wrote, "are turning
out to be" major eugenic steps. "But if they had been advanced
for eugenic reasons," he added, that "would have retarded or
stopped their acceptance."...He helped John D. Rockefeller III
establish the Population Council in 1952, served as the
council's first administrator and was on its board of trustees for
many years..."We have felt this could be done far more
effectively," Osborn wrote, "in the name of the Population
Council than in the name of eugenics. . . . Personally, I think it
is the most important practical eugenic measure ever taken." <
Eugenics, like racism generally, is an ideology passed from
generation to generation. The Pioneer Fund's founder General
Draper was much admired by Prescott Bush's son, former
President George Bush - as demonstrated by a Bush quote
further on in this article. Draper's son, William H. Draper III,
was co-fundraising chairman for the 1980 Bush-for-President
More recently the Pioneer Fund's best - known "expert" on the
alleged IQ inferiority of African Americans, Charles Murray,
has been a consultant for many of GW Bush's top advisors and
is often quoted by them. As one example, both Tommy
Thompson's and NYC Mayor Giuliani's welfare programs are
directly influenced by Murray, who is often a featured speaker
on panel discussions about them. Murray was a consultant on
the Wisconsin plan and his books, The Bell Curve and Losing
Ground, have become the "bible" of the anti-affirmative action,
school privatization and anti-welfare movements in the U.S.
These will be key texts referred to by GW's cabinet as they
perfect the work of downsizing the underclass - or as they
prefer to call it, "compassionate conservatism".
Here's what the Wall Street Journal had to say about Pioneer
Fund founder, General Draper and segregation.
From: "Silent Partner: How the South's Fight To Uphold
Segregation Was Funded Up North," Wall Street Journal
(Friday June 11, 1999) p. 1; A8.
"By the late 1930s...Mr. Draper developed a fascination with
racial genetics. In 1937, he helped found the Pioneer
Fund...Many eugenicists of the day, including some Pioneer
founders, believed that whites were superior to blacks in
intellect and other attributes...The charter of the Pioneer Fund
said the organization would support research and programs
aimed at "race betterment," Scholarship programs would give
special consideration to "children who are deemed to be
descended predominantly from white persons who settled in
the original 13 states." <
The following is from a eugenics book introduction written by
former President Bush while he was UN ambassador. In it he
praises Draper and John D. Rockefeller 3rd, the world's leading
proponents of eugenics and describes how his father, Prescott
Bush - who made his fortune from the Third Reich - was an
early supporter of Planned Parenthood. Rockefeller's Standard
Oil owned half of IG Farben, the chemical company that built
Auschwitz and forty other Nazi slave labor/factory death
camps. Rousell-Uclaf, a division of IG Farben's largest
subsidiary, Hoechst, is the manufacturer of RU 486, the
morning after abortion pill now being promoted in the US.
Some researchers believe RU 486 is intended to cause sterility.
World Population Crisis: The United States Response by
Phyllis Tilson Piotrow; Praeger Publishers
Foreword by George H. Bush, Jr.
U.S. Representative to the United Nations, 1973
"Few issues in the world have undergone such a rapid shift in
public attitudes and government policies over the last decade as
the problems of population growth and fertility control. My
own first awareness of birth control as a public policy issue
came with a jolt in 1950 when my father [Prescott Bush] was
running for the United States Senate in Connecticut. Drew
Pearson, on the Sunday before Election Day, “revealed” that
my father was involved with Planned Parenthood...As
chairman of the special Republican Task Force on Population
and Earth Resources, I was impressed by the arguments of
William H. Draper...General Draper continues to lead through
his tireless work for the UN Population Fund. Now the
recommendations of the Commission on Population Growth
and the American Future, chaired by John D. Rockefeller 3rd,
have urged many agencies to take on a larger role and have
called for the U.S. government to adopt a national population
policy....one of the major challenges of the 1970s, the Second
United Nations Development Decade, will be to curb the
world’s fertility... private organizations, like the Population
Crisis Committee, Planned Parenthood, the Population Council,
the Population Reference Bureau, the Population Institute, Zero
Population Growth, and others, have played a major role in
assisting government policy makers and in mobilizing the
United States response to the world population challenge
described in this volume." signed, George Bush
U.S. Representative to the United Nations <
As President Nixon acknowledged in the following speech,
there is no man who has been more identified with population
control and eugenics than John D. Rockefeller. In light of
GW's call for bipartisanship and the willingness of Democrats
to facilitate his illegitimate eugenics-based administration, take
special note of the "bipartisan" comment in Nixon's statement.
THE ROCKEFELLER COMMISSION ON POPULATION
GROWTH Chapter 2 PART 1 - Index
March 16, 1970. Remarks of President Nixon on Signing Bill
Establishing the Commission on Population Growth and the
American Future. "Ladies and gentlemen:
First, this message is bipartisan in character as is indicated by
the Senators and Congressmen who are standing here today. It
is time to set up a Population Commission such as this
does...An indication of that broad support is that John D.
Rockefeller has agreed to serve as Chairman of the
Commission...Of all the people in this nation, I think I could
say of all the people in the world, there is perhaps no man who
has been more closely identified and longer identified with this
problem than John Rockefeller."
Richard Viguerie's far right fundraising apparatus allowed GW
Bush to raise over $100 million for the 2000 campaign. It is
also intimately tied to eugenics and the Pioneer Fund and is the
same, 'high-tech political machine" referred to in the quote
Washington Post (Sunday, March 31, 1985) p. 1.
"CBS Fight a Litmus Test for Conservatives: Helms Group
Faces Legal Hurdles in Ideological Takeover Bid"
"A high-tech political machine armed with some of the most
lucrative direct mailing lists in the country and backed by Sen.
Jesse Helms. has drawn the management of CBS into a fight
for survival...CBS has linked officials of the Helms
organization and its main lawyer to a controversial tax-exempt
foundation, The Pioneer Fund. The fund has financed research
into "racial betterment" by scientists seeking to prove that
blacks are genetically inferior to whites."
