Romney's John Holdren Problem
NRO Online/IBD ^ | October 16, 2011 | Greg Pollowitz/IBD

Posted on 10/16/2011 3:04:55 PM PDT by raptor22

John Holdren? Population-control-John Holdren? Mitt, you have a problem. Investor’s Business Daily:

The GOP front-runner for 2012 sought advice on global warming and carbon emissions from the president’s current science czar — an advocate of de-developing America and population control.

Politics is said to make strange bedfellows, but no coupling in our view is more bizarre than when John Holdren, now President Obama’s assistant for science and technology, once advised GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney on environmental policy.

Holdren’s bizarre views are best suited for an adviser to someone like, say, Pol Pot.

He views humanity as a plague on the planet and the Industrial Revolution as a tragic mistake. The fewer people, he believes, the better, and he’s not shy about the ways he would use to reduce their number.

Why Gov. Romney, a reasonable person, would pick such a man to advise him on anything is beyond us.

A vote for a squishy lib like Romney is a vote to retain many of Obama’s czars.

Conservatives and Christians need to make it clear that they won’t vote for Romney in November.

That is so uncomfortably possible.

“Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A “Planetary Regime” with the power of life and death over American citizens.”

Scissors-wielding abortionist arrested on multiple murder counts

By Michelle Malkin • January 19, 2011 01:01 PM

Just one word: Evil. Pure, monstrous evil that was ignored for decades by state regulators: An abortion doctor killed hundreds of babies by cutting their spinal cords with scissors after removing them from mothers late in their pregnancies, prosecutors said on Wednesday. Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams charged Dr. Kermitt Gosnell, 69, and nine associates [...]

White House Science Czar Orders No Political Interference in Global Warming Sham

By Doug Powers • December 18, 2010 02:02 PM

**Written by Doug Powers People like the US De-Developer in Chief John Holdren certainly don’t seem to mind “political interference” when that interference is helping promote their cause and fleece taxpayers, but when the tables turn and some skeptics enter the scene, all of a sudden science is off limits to politics: John Holdren, director [...]

Re-Branding a Failing Sham: ‘Global Warming’ Now ‘Global Climate Disruption’

By Doug Powers • September 16, 2010 11:05 PM

**Written by Doug Powers (Alternate title: Is the Climate Disrupting in Here, or is John Holdren Crazy?”) The Obama Administration’s free-range uber-leftist psychopath “Science Czar” John Holdren, the same guy who wants to de-develop America (but in a “free market” kinda way) has obviously been charged with re-branding the foundering “global warming” movement: The White [...]

By Michelle Malkin • December 2, 2009 09:54 AM

Graph via Steve McIntyre My syndicated column today looks at the global warming cultists in the Obama administration who are working overtime to paper over the ClimateGate scandal. Yesterday, Phil Jones, the head of the U.K.’s Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia stepped aside while the university investigates. Penn State prof Michael [...]

Science czar John Holdren and ClimateGate: Perfect together

By Michelle Malkin • November 24, 2009 12:52 PM

Ah, science czar John Holdren. He’s been hyping climate change catastrophe since the 1970s, has been a master of stonewalling critics of his population control zealotry, and knows how to hide behind friendly water-carriers in the media. So, you won’t be surprised to learn he is smack dab in the middle of the exploding ClimateGate [...]

Stanford U. doesn’t want you to see this video

By Michelle Malkin • October 7, 2009 10:33 AM

Via Marc Morano at Climate Depot comes word that Stanford University is trying to cover for one of its leading eco-extremists: Stanford University has banned a skeptical documentary film from airing a climate change interview with one of its prominent warming activist professors, Stephen Schneider. After legal threats from Stanford University — apparently on behalf [...]

Reminder: The Population Control Freak & The Perv tonight on CBS

By Michelle Malkin • September 2, 2009 09:26 AM

I reported on Monday that wackjob science czar John Holdren is scheduled to make a second appearance on David Letterman’s late-night CBS show. (He first appeared last spring to stir up global warming hysteria.) Just a reminder to set your Tivos. It’s still a go, according to the Letterman Show website. To help The Perv’s [...]

Wackjob science czar to appear on David Letterman

By Michelle Malkin • August 31, 2009 10:36 AM

According David Letterman’s website, wackjob science czar Dr. John Holdren is scheduled to appear Wednesday night, September 2. Holdren has been a guest on Letterman before. He visited in April 2008 to ply global warming scare propaganda. Not a peep from Letterman about Holdren’s spectacularly wrong predictions and irresponsible alarmism. And we certainly won’t expect [...]

Obama’s science czar is a wackjob. So sue me.

By Michelle Malkin • August 24, 2009 10:12 PM

Last month, I reported on how the Obama science czar’s office stonewalled my questions about John Holdren and his warm relationship with intellectual mentor and colleague Harrison Brown, a leading eugenics enthusiast who referred to the world population as a “pulsating mass of maggots.” Investigative blogger Zombie provided an in-depth look at Holdren and Brown [...]

Caution: Obama’s weird scientists at work

By Michelle Malkin • August 12, 2009 01:09 PM

Nature reports that all the president’s science experts met last week “mull priorities.” Heading the meeting? Eugenics-embracer and science czar John Holdren. Pay attention: An elite group of 21 US researchers met publicly for the first time last week as the new advisory panel to US President Barack Obama on scientific and technical matters. But [...]

More on the wackjob science czar the MSM ignores

By Michelle Malkin • July 29, 2009 04:49 PM

This week, every conservative commentator or Republican politician who appeared on TV got the Birther litmus test. Journalists didn’t care about the issue. Their agenda was embarrassing the Right. If they cared about wackjobs espousing conspiracy theories, they’d be grilling every liberal commentator or Republican politician who appeared on TV about the wackjob science czar, [...]

Ghoulish science + Obamacare = health hazard

My syndicated column today presses again on the freaky-deaky science czar John Holdren and the implications for Obamacare. Related read: Stacy McCain sheds light on Big Money and the Culture of Death. And Matt Barber wonders: Will there be a co-pay for forced abortion under Obamacare? Ghoulish science + Obamacare = health hazard by Michelle [...]

The science czar stonewalls

By Michelle Malkin • July 21, 2009 01:54 PM

Can a population control freak holding the prestigious title of “Science Czar” get away with published musings on forced abortion, mass sterilization programs, and a “planetary regime” to re-engineer society by simply stonewalling? He’s trying his best. Last week, I called the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to press Science Czar John [...]

Study in contrasts: Christian scientist vs. eco-mad scientist

By Michelle Malkin • July 15, 2009 05:28 AM

My syndicated column below contrasts the Left’s “unease” over the evangelical Christian faith of NIH director-designate Francis Collins with its radio silence on the eco-zealotry of Obama science czar John Holdren. But first, some late-breaking developments: As Zombie notes, the White House has responded to rising blogosphere unease with Holdren’s cultish ideas by pooh-poohing Holdren’s [...]

The deafening MSM silence over eco-zealot/forced abortion advocate John Holdren

By Michelle Malkin • July 13, 2009 12:32 PM

On Friday, I spotlighted the devastating reporting on Obama “science czar” John Holdren posted at zombietime and featured it as the lead story all weekend. Refresher on Holdren’s eco-zealous views: • Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not; • The population at large could be sterilized by infertility [...]

Major sphere of influence: Politics & government

Muckety metrics:

Connections: John P. Holdren has direct or once-removed relationships with 860 people, organizations or other entities in our database of the most influential people in America. Under a scoring system that gives more weight to direct links, this score is higher than 97% of all entries.

Muckety connection score: 97

Influence: Holdren has a Muckety influence index of 86 out of 100. This is a measure of power and reach compared with others in the U.S. leadership elite.

Muckety influence score: 86

Reminder: a ‘committee’ of 15 appointed people will decide who gets what care/procedures under 0bama Deathcare. We are already experiencing a shortage of 300+ drugs people take for ‘some reason.’ I wonder who’s representing Holdren’s views on that committee.

Occupy? No.

I give you the push to de-develop the US and the world. 1/6 of 7 billion are apparently just too many people at the pie trough.

“Holdren’s radicalism dates back to the late 1960s. In 1969 Holdren wrote that it was imperative “to convince society and its leaders that there is no alternative but the cessation of our irresponsible, all-demanding, and all-consuming population growth.”

That same year, he and (the now largely discredited) professor of population studies Paul Ehrlich jointly predicted: “If … population control measures are not initiated immediately and effectively, all the technology man can bring to bear will not fend off the misery to come.” In 1971 Holdren and Ehrlich warned that “some form of ecocatastrophe, if not thermonuclear war, seems almost certain to overtake us before the end of the century.”

Viewing capitalism as an economic system that is inherently harmful to the natural environment, Holdren and Ehrlich in 1973 called for “a massive campaign … to de-develop the United States” and other Western nations in order to conserve energy and facilitate growth in underdeveloped countries.

“De-development,” they said, “means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.” “By de-development,” they elaborated, “we mean lower per-capita energy consumption, fewer gadgets, and the abolition of planned obsolescence.” “
