Culling the herd

"Everything you can imagine is
real" --Pablo Picasso
In 1974, a year after orchestrating a mass terror bombing of Cambodia --
after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize -- Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
and his National Security Council completed �National Security Study Memo 200:
Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas
Interests.� This document, whose sharp edges
are dulled by page after leaden page of how to reduce overpopulation in the
Third World through birth control and "other" population-reduction
programs, was classified until 1989, but was almost immediately accepted as US
policy, and remains the US blueprint for ethnic cleansing today.
It is difficult to imagine the staggering number of innocent humans who
have perished through war or famine as a direct result of Kissinger's
half-century obsession with, and lust for, genocide. It's even more difficult
to imagine the cruel indifference with which Kissinger, and those like him in
positions of political and corporate power -- the elite -- continue to plan the
elimination of millions, even billions. All under the guise of national security,
or to spread freedom . . . democracy . . .
Kissinger targeted a number of "key countries" whose
populations, he said, must be curtailed and controlled lest they gain economic,
political and military strength, and thus threaten US strategic interests.
"Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the
Third World," Kissinger said, "because the US economy will require
large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less
Then, as now, any nation refusing to surrender its natural resources was
an ominous threat to our national security and was dealt with initially through
birth control and other population-reduction programs such as food rationing.
But that was too slow for Kissinger, for Brent Scowcroft who replaced Kissinger
as national security adviser and was put in charge of thinning out the Third
World population, and for his eager enabler, CIA Director George H.W. Bush who trotted like a
love-starved puppy at Kissinger's heels for decades.
At first, they used food as "an instrument of national power"
to coerce the dumb masses to stop copulating and populating, and then as a
deadly weapon because widespread famine not only dealt death quicker, but it
was cost-effective. And it made more sense. Like Kissinger said, "To
give food aid to a country just because they [sic] are starving is a pretty
If we could imagine the suffering endured by victims of such perverse
inhumanity, we might feel a twinge of outrage or, as George Washington so
succinctly put it, a "little spark of celestial fire called conscience." Or not. Perhaps we are so far
removed from reality because our minds cannot grasp the horror of that reality.
Those who seek to destroy the denizens of this planet are totally without
compassion or remorse. They are grotesque mutants who kill indiscriminately in
their relentless drive for world conquest and domination.
It's naive to think the carnage will stop once predators such as
Kissinger, Alexander Haig, Robert McNamara, George H.W. Bush, and other One
World advocates, many of whom are in their 80s or 90s, are no longer in our
midst. With the release of thousands of tons of depleted
uranium in both Bush Gulf wars and Afghanistan, they have poisoned
food, water and air, and turned the entire region into massive radioactive
death camps. Without fear of accountability, they have ensured the slow,
agonizing extermination of entire populations, to include the American
military, whom Kissinger views as "dumb, stupid animals to be used as
pawns for foreign policy" -- and their families -- that will continue
for many generations.
We're like herds of cattle, grazing placidly, unable or unwilling to
imagine that we might share the same fate as the millions throughout the Third
World targeted by the elite as "bottom feeders," contributing nothing
-- eating into their profit -- gluttons who must be dispensed with. Any rancher
or farmer will tell you that it's good business to cull the herd for a variety
of reasons, such as market outlook, cash flow, or just to maintain a healthier,
more easily controlled mass of cattle. It makes no sense to keep problem cows,
the elderly, the ill or nonproductive around. There comes a time when you must
cut your losses and cull the herd.
There are those who, unlike Kissinger and his co-conspirators, are not
interested in profit or power, but believe fervently that human population is
destroying the planet. Perhaps the most outspoken is University of Texas
evolutionary scientist Dr. Eric R. Pianka, who gave a speech in March 2006
advocating the elimination of 90 percent of Earth's population.
According to Forrest
M. Mims III, chairman of the Environmental Science Section of the
Texas Academy of Science and the editor of The Citizen
Scientist, Pianka shrugged
aside war and famine -- too slow -- and said "the most efficient and
fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die" is disease. Pianka
advocates airborne Ebola because, he explained, "it is highly lethal, and
it kills in days, instead of years."
Pianka drew rounds of enthusiastic applause throughout his speech, and a
standing ovation when he threw in the Bird Flu for good measure, and quipped
gleefully, "We need to sterilize everybody on the Earth." Five hours
later, the university presented Pianka with a plaque, not for winning hands
down as "Mad Scientist of the Year," but in recognition of his being
named 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist.
It doesn't take a wild imagination to know that genocide is real, and
it's underway in America. The most blatant example is the barbaric response to
Hurricane Katrina victims -- withholding food, blocking aid, ignoring those
clinging to rooftops while crying out in vain for help, leaving corpses to
float in the flooded streets or to rot in the Superdome. If you start with the
poor, minorities, elderly, the ill or nonproductive, the culling becomes much
easier the next time around. Those who wait become inured to the inhumanity
and, rather than rise up against it, breathe sighs of relief that it's others
and not them who are rounded up and herded to the slaughterhouse.
Imagine what life would be like if the Food and Drug Administration did
not ensure the safety of our food chain . . . if our creeks and rivers were
polluted by sewage and industrial waste . . . if vaccines forced on our
children caused mental deficiencies, even death . . . if mothers were afraid to
breast-feed their babies because the environmental toxin perchlorate present in
our food and water supply accumulates in mother's milk . . . if our air was
contaminated . . . if we had a government cold-hearted enough to withhold food
and aid from the needy and health care from poor children . . . if we were
spied upon and incarcerated, tortured, disappeared without charges . . .
Oh yeah. I forgot. That is what our life is like. All that, and
more, is grinding relentlessly away at our safety, our health and our lives.
We have the power to remove these madmen. They are criminals under Articles II and III of the
1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide, and they must pay
for their crimes. One more year wherein millions more throughout the world are
slaughtered is, as they say, not an option.
The culling must stop, even if we are forced to stampede. They must be
impeached. Go here, here,
and take action.
