Rand Paul Promotes Ferguson Population Control: "Come on guys, you got to wait to have your kids."
"Birth control is not our business. I cannot imagine anything more emphatically a subject that is not a proper political or governmental activity ... or responsibility," President Eisenhower said in December 1959. Oh how things have changed, with even supposed 'limited government' politicians promoting 'family planning.'
In a recent TV news interview discussing his visit to Ferguson, MO, Senator Rand Paul said that the number one cause of poverty in America was people having children too soon. Paul mentioned nothing about the inflationary policies of the federal reserve, the monetary policies enacted by criminal oligarchs, the outsourcing of American jobs, or the overregulation of industry. He suggested that people should wait to get good jobs and an education before having children. He added that petty fines issued by government were a main cause of anger among the black population and that the answer is getting people to 'register to vote.'
There have been many politicians and influence peddlers promoting low birth rates and birth control over the years. Most notably were the influential Margaret Sanger, Henry Kissinger, and George H.W. Bush. This article covers their history of promoting population control. Rand seems to be echoing their sentiment. "Come on guys you need to get ahead you want to have a job, you got to wait to have your kids," Rand said:
"The bottom line is I think we need to do something differently and here's the problem. Some of this laws can't do. I think that needs to happen and I can't make it happen. If you look at the number one cause of poverty, this is not just black population. If you look at just the white population, the number one cause of poverty having kids before you're married, and not finishing your education. Those two things put you in this category - if you finish your education and wait to have your children, you're in this category - way different - like four times better chance of staying out of poverty, maybe ten times better. But someone needs to talk about that. There needs to be leaders. Instead of leaders inciting violence, they need to be saying "come on guys you need to get ahead you want to have a job, you got to wait to have your kids." This isn't just a black thing. I want to make sure people aren't thinking this is a racial thing. This happens in white communities, this happens across culture for the last thirty or forty years."
While there are many diverse opinions and religious beliefs regarding birth control and so-called 'population control', I think we can all agree that people's intimate decisions about having children is not an issue that should be influenced in the arena of government meddling. Politicians advocating birth control and family planning used to be seen as a bizarre, offensive and inappropriate thing not too many years ago - at least to those influenced by religious theological teachings and traditional values. What does some optometrist and newly elected politician from Kentucky have any business telling people when or how to have kids? Those not mesmerized by this phony libertarian Rand Paul should think of the outrageous inappropriateness of this. There is nothing new about politicians doing this but it exposes Rand for the 'establishment man' that he is.
Formerly classified National Security Study Memorandum number 200 written and signed by Henry Kissinger, immediately comes to mind: According to mathaba.net, the document "became the official guide to foreign policy November 26, 1975, when a National Security Decision Memorandum (NSDM 314) was signed that endorsed the findings of the study. The document "Acknowledged that the purpose of population control was to serve the U.S. strategic, economic, and military interest at the expense of the developing countries". LifeIssues.net covered it too, in their article Kissinger Report 2004: How U.S. foreign policy uses population control to expoloit third-world economies.

Our page George H.W. Bush: Evil Population Control Ghoul - "Rubbers Goes To Congress" outlines a brief summary, as well as a youtube video, covering little-known details of George H. W. Bush's vehement advocacy of global population control when he was a Congressman in the late 1960s. It includes congressional testimony of Bush's attacks on the Pope and his support of planned parenthood. Here are a few excerpts from the excellent book "George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography" by Webster G. Tarpley & Anton Chaitkin. Chapter X: Rubbers Goes to Congress:
[[blockquote]]"Bush began his Malthusian activism in the House in 1968, which was the year in which Pope Paul VI issued his encyclical "Humanae Vitae," which contained a prophetic warning of the danger of coercion by governments for the purpose of population control. The Pope wrote: "Let it be considered also that a dangerous weapon would be placed in the hands of those public authorities who place no heed of moral exigencies.... Who will stop rulers from favoring, from even imposing upon their people, the method of contraception which they judged to be most efficacious?"
This was a direct challenge to the cultural-paradigm transformation that Bush and other exponents of the oligarchical world outlook were promoting. Not for the first time nor for the last time, Bush issued a direct attack on the Holy See. Just days after Humanae Vitae was issued, Bush declared: "I have decided to give my vigorous support for population control in both the United States and the world." He also lashed out at the Pope. "For those of us who who feel so strongly on this issue, the recent encyclical was most discouraging."
Bush's open public advocacy of government measures tending towards zero population growth was a radical departure from the policies built into the federal bureaucracy up until that time. The climate of opinion just a few years earlier, in December 1959, is illustrated by the comments of President Eisenhower, who had said, "birth control is not our business. I cannot imagine anything more emphatically a subject that is not a proper political or governmental activity ... or responsibility."
As a congressman, Bush played an absolutely pivotal role in this shift. Shortly after arriving in Washington, he teamed up with fellow Republican Herman Schneebeli to offer a series of amendments to the Social Security Act to place priority emphasis on what was euphemistically called "family planning services." The avowed goal was to reduce the number of children born to women on welfare. Bush's and Schneebeli's amendments reflected the Malthusian-genocidal views of Dr. Alan Guttmacher, then president of Planned Parenthood, and a protege of its founder, Margaret Sanger. In the years before the grisly outcome of the Nazi cult of race science and eugenics had inhibited public calls for defense of the "gene pool," Sanger had demanded the weeding out of the "unfit" and the "inferior races," and had campaigned vigorously for sterilization, infanticide and abortion, in the name of "race betterment." [[/blockquote]]
In 1957, Mike Wallace questioned Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger on the issue of birth control, government involvement in family matters, and her opposition to the Catholic Church. As they begin, Sanger openly admits that her "opposition is mainly from the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church". They spend a great deal of time discussing the Catholic position on artificial birth contro l, in a very interesting interview the likes of which would probably not be aired on secular TV today. [See Mike Wallace questions Margaret Sanger on her opposition to the Catholic Church, 1957.]
Wallace challenges Sanger and brings up some of her past comments when she did attribute motives to the church, and asks her why she won't repeat her position now. He continues, "earlier this week you said 'it's not only wrong, it should be made illegal for any religious group to prohibit dissemination of birth control, even among its own members'. In other words you would like to see the government legislate religious beliefs, in a certain sense!" "Where these strange things come from that I said?!", a visibly uncomfortable Sanger responds, as Wallace continues to reads Sanger's quotes back to her, and how they are at variance with her current replies.
