VIDEO: US Water Treatment Workers Refuse to Add Flouride to Water

October 29, 2010 Leave a comment

Workers at a US water treatment works were amazed and disgusted at what they were expected to mix in to the domestic tap water supply in their region. So much so they refused to add it and released footage of it.

Make sure to watch this until the end to see the VERY clear warning placed on the bags of Flouride.


Margaret Sanger’s Racist Legacy lives on at Planned Parenthood

October 23, 2010 1 comment

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I believe Planned Parenthood is a morally bankrupt institution, whose legacy of restricting what Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg described as “growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of” is written in the blood of tens of millions of black children who never had the chance to see the light of day. Their denials to the contrary, the facts continue to indict their ongoing attempts to exterminate as many “undesirables”, as Planned Parenthood founder and eugenicist Margaret Sanger called them, as possible.

From the sting that revealed an all too eager willingness on the part of several Planned Parenthood clinics to accept a donation from a man who explicitly expressed that it be used to kill black babies, to the statistics that reveal black women account for over a third of all abortions, even though they are only 13 percent of the population, they have been caught red-handed – literally – in their gruesome task of carrying on Sanger’s “Negro Project.”

Just when I thought I couldn’t be more incensed at their actions and agenda, I was made aware of this Planned Parenthood job announcement:


Develops and executes media relations and other communications strategies designed to reach African-American audiences through targeted outreach to African-American media and popular culture outlets, as well as to general news organizations with large African-American audiences. Promotes an accurate understanding among African-Americans of Planned Parenthood’s critical role as a provider of lifesaving preventive health care and family planning to millions of Americans from every community, including the African-American community, as well as promotes policy and advocacy goals of Planned Parenthood. Proactively pitches stories and provides Planned Parenthood national staff and staff at local Planned Parenthood organizations, or “affiliates,” across the country with training and resources to pitch stories to all media. Provides guidance to local Planned Parenthood organizations so that they can generate significant, strategic local media coverage of interest to African-American audiences through local mainstream news organizations, African-American papers and radio stations, local TV, blogs and other venues. Also serves as a member of the national media team and will participate frequently in efforts to pitch stories of interest to other audiences in addition to African-American audiences.

The rest of it is here if you care to read it.

If asked, I’m sure they’ll say they need someone to counter what they will call distortions and untruths about their intentions regarding the black community.

Increasingly, black pro-life advocates, especially in the faith community, are opening the eyes of their congregants and communities to the black genocide of abortion. Through education campaigns and billboards, these brave and morally upright people are pushing back against the narrative of the liberals and self-anointed black leadership, telling us to ignore our pro-life values in favor of their political agenda.

In my book, SELLOUT: Musings from Uncle Tom’s Porch, I take these charlatans who claim to lead us, and the black church, to task for selling their souls for worldly gain:
Somewhere along the way, he [Rev. Jesse Jackson] and the majority of the black church decided that political power was more valuable than obeying the Lord Who knew us and called to us while we were still in the womb. The black church silenced itself to gain favor in political circles, yet every Sunday the congregations dance, sing and shout to God Who grieves as the blood of unborn innocents cries out to Him, drowning out their displays of emotion.

Planned Parenthood’s role in this slaughter of black innocents is particularly troubling because the organization’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a known instigator of eugenics, who called for a “pure” population through controlling the reproduction of “undesirable people.” Her “Negro Project” was aimed at reducing the number of children born to American blacks because she viewed us as inferior. Therefore, she recruited the black church to bear the seeds of our own destruction:

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.

Today, black pastors like Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton act as the “colored ministers” who lead the black population to embrace self destruction. They admonish other black pastors and congregations not to be misled by conservatives promoting the sanctity of human life or traditional marriage, despite all the evidence of the harm caused to the black community by their neglect or repudiation of those principles or institutions. They have abandoned their vows to the Lord for political glory here on earth.

And where is the NAACP in all of this? Instead of chasing racist bogeymen in the Tea Party movement, they ought to be a leading voice against black genocide. Instead, these black elites are in lockstep with their co-founder, W.E.B. DuBois, who contributed to Margaret Sanger’s periodical, Birth Control Review, in 1932:

“The mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among whites, is from that part of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly.”

Not all of today’s “colored ministers” are sold out to the “Negro Project”, however, and they must be having an effect, because Planned Parenthood is looking to hire someone whose direct focus is on the black community. If that doesn’t indicate an inordinate focus on blacks as abortion targets, then what does it mean? Why do they need someone to deliver their message specifically to black people?

I’m reading Frederick Douglass’ autobiography, My Bondage and My Freedom, and his account of his days as a slave is heart-wrenching. It is telling to me how the slave masters had no compulsions about separating children from their parents, mothers from fathers, and essentially preventing the bonds of family from ever taking hold.
Their casual disregard for the lives of black people, who they saw as property, chills me even though it’s history – or is it?

Does Planned Parenthood see black people as human beings or enhancements to their bottom line?

Seeing as how they’re looking for the next smooth talker to “straighten out that idea” about killing unborn black children, I’m grateful to our “more rebellious members” like Dr. Alveda King, Rev. Clenard H. Childress, Jr., Rev. Walter Hoye, my friend Day Gardner, and so many others.

Dr. King recently narrated a movie about the abortion industry called Blood Money, and she is faithful to the ideals of her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who once said, “The Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the futures of his children for immediate personal comfort and safety.”

Dr. King and her contemporaries battle every day against the methodical annihilation of our people through abortion, which has already taken more lives than the Ku Klux Klan and the lynch mobs could ever have dreamed, and robbed our communities of billions of dollars that could have given hope to the most desperate among us.

I salute them for standing against evil and heeding the words of her uncle, who lauded the early Christian church as “not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society.”

Forced Abortion: Dream Of The Scientific Elite

October 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Paul Joseph Watson
Friday, October 22, 2010

Today’s harrowing story about a pregnant woman in China who was brutally beaten and abducted by state goons before being forcibly injected with a drug to kill her unborn baby serves as a stark reminder that the current White House science czar, John P. Holdren, advocated the creation of a “planetary regime” that would carry out similar draconian measures in America as part of the eugenicist zeal to reduce world population.

36-year-old Xiao Aiying was eight months pregnant when twelve government officials entered her house, brutally beating and kicking her in the stomach before dragging her kicking and screaming to a state hospital. Her crime? She had conceived a second child and failed to pay the mandatory $40,000 dollar fine for breaking China’s notorious one child policy.

Aiying was held down and forcibly injected with drugs to kill the baby. The woman, “who was filmed in hospital with large bruises on her arms and her dead child still inside her, said: “I have had this baby, feeling it moving around and around my belly. Can you imagine how I feel now,” reports the Daily Mail.

The vast majority of people would find such a story repulsive, but if White House science czar John P. Holdren and a legion of like-minded eugenicists are allowed to implement their autocratic population control measures, forced abortion could be coming to America. This is the dream of the scientific elite who have indoctrinated the globe to embrace the sick religion of eugenics and population control.

In his 1977 book Ecoscience, Holdren explicitly advocated forced abortion. Holdren’s co-author was Paul Ehrlich, famous for his spectacularly inaccurate predictions about how overpopulation would destroy the environment.

On page 837, Holdren and his co-authors write, “Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”

On page 786, Holdren explains how single mothers should have their babies taken away by the government; or failing that be forced to have abortions.

“One way to carry out this disapproval might be to insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for adoption—especially those born to minors, who generally are not capable of caring properly for a child alone. If a single mother really wished to keep her baby, she might be obliged to go through adoption proceedings and demonstrate her ability to support and care for it. Adoption proceedings probably should remain more difficult for single people than for married couples, in recognition of the relative difficulty of raising children alone. It would even be possible to require pregnant single women to marry or have abortions, perhaps as an alternative to placement for adoption, depending on the society.”

To prevent women from conceiving in the first place, Holdren advocates poisoning the water supply with sterilant drugs, so long as it doesn’t harm livestock.

From page 787-8, ““Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. Indeed, this would pose some very difficult political, legal, and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems. No such sterilant exists today, nor does one appear to be under development. To be acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements: it must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets, or livestock.”

On pages 786-787, Holdren introduced the idea of a mandatory implant that prevents women from getting pregnant until they receive government permission to do so.

“The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.”

Screenshots of all these excerpts can be viewed here.

As we have thoroughly documented, the overpopulation myth is a completely discredited pseudo-science. Cited by advocates of population control as a sick justification, in reality it is merely the front for an elitist drive to thin the human surplus so that we may be more easily enslaved and ruled by the “planetary regime” that Holdren calls for on pages 942-943.

As we revealed in a report last month, the true agenda behind fanning the flames of fears about overpopulation is to reduce living standards globally, by preventing the third world from ever becoming economically prosperous, while also eviscerating the middle classes of western nations.

A leaked UN blueprint concerning the need to re-energize the move towards global government outlined a plan to re-brand global warming as “overpopulation” as a means of dismantling the middle classes by discouraging them from having children.

The fact that after having advocated measures which could just as easily have come from the warped mind of someone like Nazi monster Dr. Joseph Mengele, Holdren is now overseeing geo-engineering projects focused around spraying the atmosphere with dangerous sulphur particles, the threat is clear. We literally have mad scientists who want to abduct pregnant women and kill heir babies in charge of scientific policy and the multi-billion dollar budget that goes with it.

How John Holdren is still being paid with taxpayer money to craft environmental and public health policies when he has openly advocated forced abortion and illegal mass sterilization programs is a damning indictment of how the inmates are running the asylum.

Is it time to make Bernie Madoff Treasury Secretary?

Why don’t we put Charlie Manson in charge of education?

How about hiring Kim Jong-Il as a foreign ambassador?

ADA Study Confirms Dangers of Fluoridated Water, Especially For Babies

October 21, 2010 Leave a comment

(NaturalNews) Advocates of fluoridated water insist that the chemical additive is good for teeth, but actual science routinely shows otherwise, including a new study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association confirming fluoride as a toxic substance that actually destroys teeth, particularly those of developing young children and babies.

When people are exposed to excessive levels of fluoride through sources like drinking water, foods and beverages and even swallowed toothpaste, it often results in a condition known as dental fluorosis. The internal uptake of fluoride into teeth over time causes their enamel to become mottled and discolored, the end result being damaged teeth that have essentially rotted from the inside out.

Dr. Steven Levy, D.D.S., and his team found during their study that “fluoride intakes during each of the first four years (of a child’s life) were individually significantly related to fluorosis on maxillary central incisors, with the first year more important.” They went on to warn that “infant formulas reconstituted with higher fluoride water can provide 100 to 200 times more fluoride than breast milk, or cow’s milk.”

In other words, young children have the highest risk of severe tooth damage from fluoride, especially those that are six months of age or younger, a time during which children’s blood-brain barriers have not fully formed. Even low ingestion levels cause the direct depositing of fluoride into the teeth, brain and other bodily tissues and organs which, besides causing fluorosis, also causes disorders of the brain and nervous system, kidneys and bones.

And the American Dental Association (ADA) has known that fluoride exposure causes dental fluorosis since at least 2006, but the group has done nothing to warn the 200 million Americans that live in communities with fluoridated water to avoid its use in babies and infants. Many dentists still recommend that children and adults not only drink fluoridated water, but even advise parents to add fluoride drops to their children’s drinking water if the family lives in unfluoridated areas or drinks private well water.

Fluoride causes serious health problems

In 2006, a study published in The Lancet identified fluoride as “an emerging neurotoxic substance” that causes severe brain damage. The National Research Council (NRC) wrote that “it is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain and the body by direct and indirect means.”

About a month later, another study published in Environmental Health Perspectives found a definitive link between fluoride intake and reduce IQ levels, indicating once again that fluoride intake causes cognitive damage.

At Harvard University, researchers identified a link between fluoride and bone cancer. Published 14 years after it began, the study found that the highest rates of osteosarcoma, a fatal form of bone cancer, were occurring most in populations drinking fluoridated water. The findings confirmed those of a prior government study back in 1990 that involved fluoride-treated rats.

Kidney disease is another hallmark of fluoride poisoning. Multiple animal studies have found that fluoride levels as low as 1 part per million (ppm) — which is the amount added to most fluoridated water systems — cause kidney damage. And a Chinese study found that children exposed to slightly higher fluoride levels had biological markers in their blood indicative of kidney damage.

The NRC has also found that fluoride impairs proper thyroid function and debilitates the endocrine system. Up until the 1970s, fluoride was used in Europe as a thyroid-suppressing medication because it lowers thyroid function. Many experts believe that widespread hypothyroidism today is a result of overexposure to fluoride.

Since fluoride is present in most municipal water supplies in North America, it is absurd to even suggest that parents avoid giving it to their young children. How are parents supposed to avoid it unless they install a whole-house reverse osmosis water filtration system? And even if families install such a system, fluoride is found in all sorts of food and beverages, not to mention that it is absorbed through the skin every time people wash their hands with or take a shower in fluoridated water. Perhaps these are some of the reasons why the ADA has said nothing about the issue despite the findings.

There simply is no legitimate reason to fluoridate water. Doing so forcibly medicates an entire population with a carcinogenic, chemical drug. There really is no effective way to avoid it entirely, and nobody really knows how much is ingested or absorbed on a daily basis because exposure is too widespread to calculate. But political pressure and bad science have continued to justify water fluoridation in most major cities, despite growing mountains of evidence showing its dangers.

Ending water fluoridation is a difficult task, but concerted efforts by citizens, local authorities, and even dentists, have resulted in some significant victories. To learn more about fluoride, check out the Fluoride Action Network (FAN):

UN Tricks and Treaties

October 19, 2010 Leave a comment

By Cassandra Anderson

The United Nations has ensnared the world in voluntary treaties intended to become mandatory later, tricking politicians and the public.  The treaties may be vague and open to interpretation over time, using a tactic known as ‘incrementalism’.  These treaties affect many branches of government.  The treaties are designed to deindustrialize and economically break nations, restrict energy resources (especially for electricity and transportation) and implement taxation schemes based on manipulated science from the UN (the EPA has authority to implement Cap-and-Trade).


Agenda 21 Sustainable Development was introduced at the 1992 Earth Summit; it is not a treaty but uses treaties as a tool to implement its action plan for depopulation and total control.   Michael Shaw has described Agenda 21 as the head of a monster whose tentacles have infiltrated all levels of government, affecting almost all areas of life, and he says that if you take out the head of the monster (Agenda 21), its tentacles will wither.

The UN avoids using the word ‘treaty’.  Most people understand that treaties erode national sovereignty and power.  Voluntary treaties can be used to slide a foot in the door in order to trample sovereignty later through mandatory regulations.

Conventions, Protocols, Agreements, Covenants and Accords take the form of a treaty, which may be binding international legal instruments or may become binding later when negotiations are completed.

An Initiative is a type of referendum in which a proposal is placed on the ballot by way of petition.

A Declaration does not have any legal power to enforce compliance but relies on the moral weight it carries.

UNFCCC: UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is a voluntary treaty ratified by the US in 1992 following the Earth Summit; no limits were set for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but the treaty provided for updates (protocols) to set mandatory limits.

The Kyoto Protocol is an amendment to the UNFCCC which is legally binding but the US never ratified this treaty.  The Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012, hence the push to ratify it, or a similar treaty like the Copenhagen Accord.


SNF04MAG04_380_745755aAccording to Richard Courtney’s article (May 1999) the real danger of global warming is the extreme response that politicians have had to imaginary global warming.  Courtney says that the theory of global warming was developed during the Industrial Revolution in the 1880′s, but remained relatively obscure until 1979 when Margaret Thatcher became the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Courtney’s article explains that Thatcher desired respect and followed the advice of Sir Crispin Tickell, depopulation advocate and UK ambassador to the UN.  He pointed out that she could gain international credibility if she promoted the global warming (GW) deception because most politicians are scientifically illiterate (Thatcher holds an undergraduate degree in chemistry).  The benefits to the Thatcher Administration GW policies were:

• GW fear was used to weaken US power- if all other countries enacted carbon taxes and industrial reductions they could pressure and gain benefit over the US.

• Thatcher belonged to the Conservative Party that held a grudge against the National Union of Mineworkers who were blamed for the Party’s prior defeats, so GW provided an excuse shut down many coal mines and eliminate the miners’ political power.

• Nuclear energy emits no carbon dioxide (CO2), and many coal plants were replaced with nuclear power plants.  Nuclear power, which presents its own risks, was 4 times as expensive as coal-fired electricity.

• The new nuclear power plants were necessary to produce nuclear weapons.

Thatcher established the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research, the operating agency for the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).   Hadley is located at East Anglia University, the focal point of the ‘Climategate’ scandal.



UN global warming policies refuse to die because the EPA enforces them and endorses UN IPCC “science”.  The EPA created the first Cap-and-Trade scheme for acid rain by expanding the Clean Air Act in 1990 that generates billions a year in taxes for a problem that is not serious and this is the model for carbon taxation.

The EPA, through the Clean Air Act and a broad Supreme Court case ruling in 2007, has authority over air pollution that endangers public health.   In 2009 the EPA came out with the CO2 ‘endangerment finding’ that determined CO2 threatens public health!   Therefore, the EPA appears to have the authority to regulate harmless CO2 and other minor greenhouse gas emissions (Texas is suing the EPA).  The EPA has an 18,000 page document with new regulations that includes a Cap-and-Trade scheme, which is the back-up plan because the national bills for Cap-and-Trade failed.

The EPA and other federal agencies have received money from the taxpayer funded $787 billion Recovery Act stimulus program to pursue useless green policies.  Over $7 billion dollars has been allocated to the EPA directly; the total amount for all agencies pursuing restrictions on electricty and transportation, in the name of the environment, is not known.


The Department of Energy (DOE) has received over $30 billion from the Recovery Act stimulus program. The DOE is spending this money on perpetuating bad UN policies that include:

Energy Efficiency- this paves the way for licensing your home for energy efficiency (HR 2454).

Modernizing the Electric Grid- this program institutes the “Smart Grid” program that monitors your energy usage: how much is used, when it is used, and it can even track some appliances.  Some people fear that the government will use the grid to remotely control personal energy usage.  Here’s a map of the DOE’s consolidation of federal grids across America:


Carbon Capture and Storage- this program is a giant waste of money because carbon is harmless and even if there was 500% more carbon dioxide in the environment, it would be a benefit for agriculture and would not harm the atmosphere or animals and humans.

Transportation: Obama is proud of this program and boasted about creating jobs at a battery plant in Michigan, but $548 million was spent to create 309 jobs (that’s $1.4 million per job).

Renewable Energy: this program focuses on biofuels, wind and solar power.  Biofuel crops have cut down on food production. Wind and solar are inefficient.   Of course, industrial hemp, a plant that is a source of fuel, food, paper and plastic replacement, is not mentioned, nor will it receive any funding because it threatens too many monopolies and is illegal to grow.


securedownload-3The centralization of power designed to depopulate and control people is funded by the people. The policies are dreamed up in think tanks affiliated with the UN, like the Club of Rome, famous for this quote:

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill….All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”

The policies are then supported by UN “science” that has proven to be manipulated, if not outright fraudulent.  Based on inaccurate UN science, nations fund these programs and implement the policies. The taxpayers fund the governments, so We The People are actually paying for our own demise!

NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) are deeply rooted in promoting propaganda to implement these programs and over 2400 NGO representatives went to the 1992 Earth Summit, and over 17,000 attended the parallel forum.

Here is a list of foundations that fund global warming propaganda and programs:


Deindustrialization through limiting electricity and transportation is a primary goal of Agenda 21 and the people are funding it.  Therefore, the people and a true free market should decide the course of the future.   Fossil fuels pollute, but severely reducing them would set us back to a pre-industrial existence.  Nuclear power has serious risks.   Renewable energy will not sustain an industrialized society.


Darkness is destroyed by light.  Exposure of Agenda 21′s dark intentions is the first critical step.  Action is essential.   The most effective way to get rid of Agenda 21 is to educate your hometown local government officials (both city and county) that have far more power than most people realize.

UPDATED: UK Drug Addicts Being Paid Not To Have Children; Billionaire Funding

October 19, 2010 2 comments

Drug addicts across the UK are being offered money to be sterilized by an American charity.

Project Prevention is offering to pay £200 to any drug user in London, Glasgow, Bristol, Leicester and parts of Wales who agrees to be operated on. The first person in the UK to accept the cash is drug addict “John” from Leicester who says he “should never be a father”. The move has been criticized by some drug Charities who work with addicts.

Project Prevention founder Barbara Harris admitted her methods amounted to “bribery”, but said it was the only way to stop babies being physically and mentally damaged by drugs during pregnancy. Drug treatment charity Addaction estimates one million children in the UK are living with parents who abuse drugs. Pregnant addicts can pass on the dependency to the unborn child, leading to organ and brain damage. Mrs Harris set up her charity in North Carolina after adopting the children of a crack addict.

Damage to children

Speaking to the BBC’s Inside Out program, she said: “The birth mother of my children obviously dabbled in all drugs and alcohol – she literally had a baby every year for eight years. I get very angry about the damage that drugs do to these children.”

After paying 3,500 addicts across the United States not to have children, she is now visiting parts of the UK blighted by drugs to encourage users to undergo “long-term birth control” for cash.

John, a 38-year-old addict from Leicester, is the first person in the UK to accept money to have a vasectomy after being involved in drugs since he was 12. He said: “It was something that I’d been thinking about for a long time. I won’t be able to support a kid; I can just about manage to support myself.”

Simon Antrobus, chief executive of Addaction, said while no-one wanted to see children brought up in a drug-using environment, there was no place for Project Prevention in the UK. “It exploits very vulnerable people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol at probably the lowest point in their lives,” he said.

The Reverend Robert Black, of Victory Outreach, which works with former addicts in east London, said he thought Project Prevention’s aims were “very devious”.

Reversible contraception

Maria Cripps, team leader at Islington’s Dovetail service which is part of Cranstoun Drug Services, said: “I think Barbara uses some very extreme examples to get her point across. It might work in America but Great Britain is a very different country.” But Reverend Martin Blakebrough, director of Camden’s Kaleidoscope Project in north London, said sterilization was “worth considering” if it was right for the individual.

A spokesperson at the British Medical Association said: “The BMA’s ethics committee does not have a view on the charity Project Prevention. As with all requests for treatment, doctors need to be confident that the individual has the capacity to make the specific decision at the time the decision is required. The BMA’s ethics committee also believes that doctors should inform patients of the benefits of reversible contraception so that the patients have more reproductive choices in the future.”

UPDATE: Right-Wing Billionaire Sponsors Sterilization For UK Drug Addicts

Last night, the UK’s BBC aired the story of a 38-year-old heroin addict called John, who became the first person in England to accept cash to be sterilized. For £200 ($320), he agreed to a vasectomy, paid for by US charity Project Prevention. The North Carolina non-profit and its founder Barbara Harris are now at the center of an ethical row, with critics  in England calling her work “utterly wrong”, “immoral” and “exploitative”, posing “the risk of a slippery slope towards Nazi-style eugenics.” The charity has already paid more than 3500 American drug addicts in exchange for sterilization, and plans to move on to Australia next.

What the UK papers have failed to mention is the money man behind this controversial scheme. Far-right republican billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife — heir to the Mellon family oil and banking fortune — is one of Project Prevention’s main donors.

“I met him years ago,” Harris told Forbes last month, during research for Scaife’s Forbes 400 rich list profile. “It was an honor.”

Scaife, owner of right-leaning media outlets the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and Newsmax, has a history of bankrolling conservative causes. He generally keeps a very low profile; his name hasn’t cropped up in the national press since his company briefly flirted with purchasing Newsweek magazine earlier this year.

However, last week, Vice President Joe Biden cited the Pittsburgh-based billionaire during a speech on the fundraising abilities of GOP groups, who have been vastly outspending Democrats during this election cycle. Just a handful of Republican Forbes 400 members have financed Karl Rove’s American Crossroads PAC. While Scaife isn’t listed as a donor, Biden is concerned that he and his fellow conservative billionaires are giving to tax exempt nonprofits. Thanks to new legislation, these groups don’t have to disclose their donor lists. Said Biden:

“You don’t know where [the money is] coming from, but you know where it’s coming from. It’s coming from some of the biggest interests – the Mellon Scaife types of the world. Folks, these guys are playing for keeps.”

Scaife didn’t respond to a request for comment from Forbes on this story.

FLASHBACK: Big Pharma Genocide – Bayer Has Been Dumping AIDS-Infected Drugs All Over The Globe For Decades

October 19, 2010 Leave a comment

Unearthed documents show that the drug company Bayer sold millions of dollars worth of an intravenous blood-clotting medicine — Factor VIII concentrate, intended for hemophiliacs — to Asian, Latin American, and some European countries in the mid-1980s, although they knew that it was tainted with AIDS. Bayer knew about the fact that the drug was tainted and told the FDA to keep things under wraps while they made a profit off of a drug that infected its patients. If these allegations are true, then both Bayer and the FDA are at fault for this catastrophe. FDA regulators helped to keep the continued sales hidden, asking the company that the problem be “quietly solved without alerting the Congress, the medical community and the public,” according to the minutes of a 1985 meeting.
