Bush Administration Asked to End Decades Old US Foreign-Targeted Population Control Policy
Important press conference Thursday

WASHINGTON, December 8, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The rarely-spoken of foreign-targeted US population control policy will be given special public exposure tomorrow at a Human Life International (HLI) press conference.

HLI will address the three-decades-old population control policy that was drawn up based on a 1974 memorandum by Henry Kissinger, US Secretary of State during the administration of President Richard Nixon. Kissinger's National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200) was a confidential document until declassified in the early 1990's and is still unknown to most Americans who would highly likely never have supported such a policy.

The plan called for collusion among the U.S. government, the United Nations and non-governmental organizations such as International Planned Parenthood Federation. According to NSSM 200: "Throughout the implementation of the [population control] process, we have to make sure to hide our tracks and disguise our programs as altruistic . . . hiding the fact that we want access to their natural resources."

HLI has called upon the Bush Administration to formally rescind the Kissinger population control policy and withdraw related funding from the United Nations.

NSSM 200, and the US population control policy which came from it, especially targeted thirteen countries for depopulation, countries which, if allowed to increase sufficiently in population, were seen to be able to challenge US economic superiority. Billions of US taxpayer dollars have since gone into funding population control in countries around the globe.

HLI explains in a release that NSSM 200 justified the radical population control methods it implemented by claiming it would: 1) prevent developing nations from becoming politically powerful; 2) protect U.S. investments in these countries; 3) maintain U.S. access to these countries' natural resources; 4) limit the number of young people in these countries, who are more likely to challenge existing social and political norms.

The press conference, to be held at the National Press Club in Washington DC at 9:30am, will feature leaders from several of the thirteen nations targeted by NSSM 200. These leaders will personally discuss the repercussions their countries have experienced as a result of the secret population control agenda contained in the memo.

"Recent articles in Newsweek and Parade magazines demonstrate that the 'need' for population control is nothing more than an over-hyped myth. The time has come for U.S. government policy to formally acknowledge this same basic truth," said Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, president of HLI. "For the past 30 years, billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars have gone to fund population control programs- this, too, must come to an end."

HLI, good as they are, probably won't want to mention that our pope is a big supporter of the UN and they so-called "humanitarian initiatives".
How about holding his feet to the fire too?

HLI is headed by priests so they won't speak critically against the Pope.

IMO--the hierarchy bears much blame for the holocaust because of their silence--with very few exceptions.

Bishop McHugh is the most guilty--IMO: http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a3926ba0b3bfa.htm

God Almighty. This explains the lack of outrage in 1973 when the despots in the Supreme Court decided to sanction the killing of our own young. The other branches were silent because they were (and continue to be) implicit in it.

Respect for the dead prevents me from expressing myself in one instance, but I find Kissinger a reproachable disgrace and I'd be glad to see him laid to waste.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. There was also an effort to depopulate most territory in the US by the UN. Boyd had brought us what I call 'the Map of Doom'. It was in the UN website for a long time, showing essentially the Bush Map in reverse. Where you see blue in the Bush map, that was generally where the survivors would be allowed to live, while the red in the map was going to be a gigantic park-- at least, that was their known plan. I'd love to see that map again. Not sure if it's still in the UN. FReegards....

Precisely.

Please see the post on the 1970 GOP Task Force report for the rationale behind their "moral" attempts to rectify with population control the well-intentioned social programs which resulted in "down breeding."

Abortion is a GOP policy.

And it was the GOP-discovered "right" to predetermine the sex of one's children which led to our Surplus in Potential People who became the perfect candidates for state-sanctioned human experimentation.

When the X-Files used to say "the Truth is out there," I never dreamed it was so boldly set forth in the Congressional Record, of all places.

HLI Calls Upon Bush Admin. to Promptly Rescind NSSM-200; Put an End to Funding of International Population Control Programs

To: National and International Desks

Contact: Jennifer Taylor of Human Life International, 540-622-5272, jtaylor@hli.org

WASHINGTON, Dec. 9 /Christian Wire Service/ -- Today, Human Life International (HLI) will hold a press conference to officially call upon the Bush administration to rescind the three-decades-old population control policy and to release Kissinger Report 2004: A Retrospective on NSSM-200. The event begins at 9:30 a.m. ET, today-Dec. 9, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

"Today, Human Life International calls upon President George W. Bush to take immediate action to rescind the offensive directives of National Security Study Memorandum 200," said Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, president of HLI. "We are confident that the president, once properly briefed, will agree it is in the best interest of our foreign relations, national security, and world economy to put an immediate and decisive end to such futile policies.

"It is also our hope that action by this administration will inspire the United Nations to immediately end its discriminatory programs created as a result of the NSSM-200 agenda," continued Fr. Euteneuer. "It is the U.N.'s obligation to operate in the best interest of every human being it represents. As long as the U.N. targets vulnerable populations with policies that violate basic human rights, it cannot be said to be doing its duty."

Don't hold your breath...I'd bet 4 out of 5 FReepers, and a majority of Americans, STILL would think these are valid strategic defense goals ("What's wrong with contraception for them dumb third worlders who are overpopulating themselves into starvation?" Sound familiar? I've seen it said on this Forum too many times to count). Demographic warfare: the dirtiest, deadliest war ever fought and won against an adversary that never knew they were at war.

ping...this thread will get little if any discussion, but this policy of the USA is the number one crime against humanity by the US government in the last hundred years, a crime that calls out to God for justice and vengence.

And it is still the policy of the USA, to our eternal shame. Lord, have Mercy on us. Do not give us what we truly deserve. Please.

Abortion is a GOP policy.

When will Christian conservatives learn this, take it to heart, and act upon it?

If evangelical minister/televangelist Pat Robertson is typical of evangelical Christians, then the answer is "NEVER."

In a CNN interview on April 16, 2001, [Pat] Robertson, the founder of the Christian Coalition and head of the Christian Broadcasting Network, was asked how he reconciles his support for close ties with China with Beijing's ruthless one-child policy, which has forced unwanted abortions on tens of millions of women. "I don't agree with it," Robertson said. "But ... they've got 1.2 billion people, and they don't know what to do. If every family over there was allowed to have three or four children, the population would be completely unsustainable.... They're doing what they have to do."

It would be hard to overstate the moral bankruptcy of those words, as well as this US policy.

Hmmm... when blacks are going to find that they were targeted (40% of abortion rates)... this is not going to go too well and could legitimize a form of "birth affirmative action" as in "all white kids are belong to us".

Of course, that Dems are the foremost proponents nowadays of abortion is going to go again under the radar screen.

Is this blackmail material against the GOP which all of a sudden is getting known for some reason? Kissinger is liberal RINO democrat, by the way.

I'm not saying there isn't more to be done (I'd like to see a formal retraction of the memo, too) but it seems odd to me that this story isn't acknowledging Mexico City or Bush's UNFPA de-funding in any way, shape or form.

I also think that you have to have more evidence than this to prove that a government is still consciously following a policy laid out 30 years ago; to say a lot of things have changed since the Nixon and Ford administrations is to put things lightly. True, we still pay for family planning, but the problem is that the sexual revolution made "family planning" so seemingly innocuous that I'd be surprised if we didn't have federal bureaucrats doing this, Kissinger memo or no Kissinger memo.

Normally abortion topics aren't covered by this pinglist - not because the topic isn't important, but because other pinglists deal with it.

But this even more ramifications since it involves US foreign policy, is founded upon evil plans and goals, trying to undermine other sovereign nations. I hope we'll hear about the presser tomorrow, and which countries have been targeted.

Let me know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.

Thanks, St. Johann, for the alert!

When you're talking about a charge this serious, slapping it onto a different set of people thirty years later...I think we need to presume innocence while investigating fully. It's especially important that we don't focus on "Kissinger wrote this memo" when the real trouble is that most people have no problem at all with the sort of "family planning" these organizations carry out.

"Abortion is a GOP policy." ... What does the Scriptures say about a root of bitterness? ... Abortion is a policy endorsed by a lot of politicians unable to or unwilling to acknowledge the LIFE of the pre-born. To say it's a GOP policy the way you keep insisting, as if the DNC is merely a bystander in the farce, is getting a bit old, Askel.

Let's just hope the President doesn't take the lead from his father "Rubbers Bush"  the king of Title X and population control funding.
 

Facts About Title X - The National Family Planning Program

The national family planning program, Title X of the Public Health Service Act, was established in 1970 with broad bi-partisan support. The original measure was introduced by then Representatives James Scheuer (D-NY) and George Bush (R-TX) and Senators Joseph Tydings (D-MD) and Charles Percy (R-IL). The program supports a nationwide network of approximately 4,600 "clinics" and provides reproductive health services to approximately 5 million persons each year.   $280,000,000 was appropriated in fiscal year 2004

George Bush Presidential Library and Museum

I believe that the title X family planning program should be reauthorized. I now urge the Congress to adopt a bill that promotes true family planning rather than requiring Federal tax dollars to be used in a manner that promotes abortion as a method of birth control.

Take a look at the information on the HLI website and see for yourself the influence and hand the United Nations has in population control along with its various agencies: USAID, UNFPA and the so-called, pro-children UNICEF.

Marvin ...

It's a FACT, my dear man. Don't you read any of my threads I link again and again and again and again and again and again?

Do you really think I'd still be posting here if it weren't a FACT that abortion is a GOP policy?

I am very sorry to see you falling into the realm of Personal Interpretation such that you too are taking the "Askel hates Bush and the Pubbies" schtick. Don't understand I couldn't care less about Bush and most of my family and friends are Republicans for whom I have intense love and respect.

Doesn't change the THE FACT that abortion is GOP policy.

Read the links! I'm not going to say I told you so or anything. And I won't "wish I could see your face" as the truth dawns on you. Why? Because I remember what my face looked like -- and what my stomach felt like -- as it dawned on me.

We'll talk once you've read the links on this post.

Start with this one: Recommendations of the Task Force on Earth Resources and Population (George H. Bush, Chairman)

I doubt you can cast the Congressional Record as Conspiracy Central.

Please do not fail to scan through the entire thread, paying especially close attention to a few posts by Toenail wherein George Bush is appearing before Congress so that the committee hearing testimony newly-appointed eugenicists on subjects such as Down Breeding, Genetic/Hereditary Quality, the breeding of superior people "like cattle," and the prospects of "immunology" for population control.

Prepare to be sickened but hurry up and get angry for being taken for a stooge all your life.

I'm not bitter, Marvin. But if there's one thing that makes me very angry (if not also a bit depressed at times), it's the way folks I love and respect and know to be true have taken the bait of some some Big Lies ... hook, line and sinker.

It's a very frightening thing and not something you can always do something about.

Because the sad fact of the matter is, Marvin, that folks are far more Emotionally attached to their leaders than you would believe. That's why some truly can't conceive of my criticizing Bush without presuming I must "hate" him if I don't "love" him.

Very frightening thought, really. But one I try not to entertain regardless how often I'm reminded of same by the constant smearing of me on this forum as a "Bush-hater".

Absurd. Any Catholic who prays the Rosary almost daily as do I, prays at least five times a day that even those "most in need of mercy" will be led to Heaven. In other words, I probably pray for Bush more often than those who love him.

Thoughts on both of your points:

Marvin, I suspect that Askel is not so much bitter as she is trying to alert the readers to the fact that the GOP is not the pristine "Party of Life and Family" that so many sheeple, including many good folk on FR seem to believe. Many very well intentioned and sincere Pro-Life people get quite defensive when the facade of the GOP is pulled back.

I've been a registered Republican since the week of my 18th birthday and this continued GOP involvement disgusts me beyond words!

We cannot defeat the scourge of abortion without understanding "who's who" and "what's what" NSSM200 is a major part of the puzzle that needs to be taken into serious account. The "Pro-Life" plank of the GOP Convention Platform is a lie when seen next to the actual policy that the party continues.

The fact is Kissinger wrote 200 for a GOP Prez and Ford, another GOP, continued it.

Askel, IMO it may be better to finish the thought:

Abortion was part of a policy of global AND domestic population control and eugenics; which was enacted via executive order by two consecutive Republican administrations, with massive support from the Rockefeller wing of the Democrat party. This quickly became entrenched US government policy and embraced by many of both major political parties. NSSM200 has remained in effect through all administrations since it's implementation.

=== massive support from the Rockefeller wing of the Democrat party.


To be sure ... any Catholic who isn't familiar with Rockefeller's thinking to influence the Pope on Humanae Vitae or the closed door conferences Hesburgh held at Notre Dame preparatory to having Catholics mint the phrase "I'm personally opposed BUT I would never impose my beliefs on another" during Congressional hearings has yet to understand the very real Democrat complicity at work here.

But even more important than the fact there is really very little to distinguish the Elite of both parties, IMHO, is the truly tragic way the Democrats were charged with making abortion their "Litmus Test."

You can read posts on this forum and realize that plenty of so-called conservatives (among them quite a few "former Democrats", eh comrades? =) have no problems with abortion's being legal and support wholeheartedly the state's intervening to sanction birth control and artificial reproduction.

So the lines have blurred a bit but abortion's still waved like a red cape in folks' faces because it's vitally important that the Party of Dysgenics -- the Democrats -- off more of their own than the more prosperous and stable Republican constituency.

This is one point I wouldn't mind going over to DU and making one day though, to date, I've never been inspired to visit, even.

I have always wondered, however, if it would be possible to rouse a "woman scorned" sort of reaction out of Dems if enough began to realize how they'd been had. I suppose it's my utterly disappointing experiences as a Bloodhound among the NO-AIDS Task Force heavy-hitters that causes me to believe most -- from Jews to Catholics to homosexuals and feminists -- have Politicized their faith beyond repair and can't place anything before the Party ... even God himself or their own friends and family.

It isn't so much a Republican/Democrat policy - it's a ruling elite policy for the rest of us unwashed. THAT'S the fact.

The "differences" remaines theater so we all take our eyes off the ball time and again.

Friends,

This thread is boring in many ways, yet so very critical to more fully appreciate the magnitude of the escalating war on the sanctity of life.

The sickening fact is that abortion is an ACTIVE part of US Government policy -- OUR GOVERNMENT.

This last election could be a good lesson of what might happen when enough people are awakened to the issues that the “values voters” care about. But STILL not nearly enough people are engaged to defend and vote for REAL CHANGE to defend the sanctity of LIFE. Pamphleteering during election time IS NOT SUFFICENT.

THE ONLY WAY to turn this around is with comprehensive sanctity of life education for all people, beginning when they are very young. Age appropriate material for kindergarten age and up, will be necessary.

But we cannot wait for Christian schools to begin this. It is the FIRST obligation of Parents to teach their children the Faith and in this age sanctity of life must be a MAJOR part.

Please read THE MISSING KEY OF THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT and the Education Page and start with your family right away.

You are right about education. It's the answer. How sad it will take a generation to have the effect we need.

I was under the impression NSSM 200 was revoked under the Reagan administration. The raving population controller here, from what I can recall, thinks it was.

Guys, I have NEVER trusted Kissinger. This is EXACTLY the kind of thing I figured him for. And the abandonment of POWs in Vietnam. Power uber EVERYTHING! Peace and love, George.

This is very true. Parents have a great responsibility to teach and train their children in many aspects of life and social issues. We can't and should not expect the church to be responsible for it, the church ought to merely be reinforcing what we have taught them at home the 6 days of the week when they are not in church. If the children are not homeschooled then it is vital to talk with the kids about what they are hearing. It is likely that parents may need to unindoctrinate their children on things they've heard or been taught at their school.

A few years ago my stepson lived with us and I asked him if there were any books they used at school that they were 'not' allowed to bring home. Yes there were. When I contacted the school about having him bring the book home so I could look it over, well they didn't want that to happen. I had to pitch a big fit in order to see the book. I don't really remember what the content was but the point is that kids may not know 'what' they should tell their parents and that's why it's important for us to initiate the conversations with them and ask them questions.

Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.

Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the Statement of principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests were adopted by more than 178 Governments at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992.

The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) was created in December 1992 to ensure effective follow-up of UNCED, to monitor and report on implementation of the agreements at the local, national, regional and international levels. It was agreed that a five year review of Earth Summit progress would be made in 1997 by the United Nations General Assembly meeting in special session.

The full implementation of Agenda 21, the Programme for Further Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Commitments to the Rio principles, were strongly reaffirmed at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) held in Johannesburg, South Africa from 26 August to 4 September 2002.

U.N. Agenda 21
