It is often difficult to swallow facts, when your political positions are keeping you from seeing clearly. The truth is that many Conservatives who typically are pro-life, are locking arms with pro-abortion Anti-Immigration Organizations. Immigration may be a sound political policy to debate, but we MUST be careful we do not grow what we typically view as a population control and eugenics mentality.

What I would like to do, is offer a small bit of research on organizations like: Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR),The Pioneer Fund, Numbers USA, and Planned Parenthood – showing you connections they all have in common.

Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)

If you take a simple look at their history and their website you will note that many on FAIR’s board are former Planned Parenthood members and leaders, abortion clinic workers, and Zero Population Control Activists ! Just Google John Tanton– FAIR’S founder and see his links to Planned Parenthood in Michigan- In Fact, FAIR’s board member, Sarah G. Epstein, now serves on Planned Parenthood’s board in Washington. Epstein also serves on the Pathfinder International board founded by eugenics financeer, Clarence Gamble. In fact, Epstein is the daughter of Gamble, and as she serves on Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR’s) Board : According to the North Carolina Winston-Salem Journal, “Gamble helped found the Human Betterment League of North Carolina in 1947 to promote eugenic sterilization, and Journal research shows a long history of abuses in the N.C. sterilization program – abuses that Gamble consistently glossed over..” One major eugenics promoter which Gamble linked up with was Margaret Sanger.

In 1939, Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger , and member of the American Eugenics Society, began The Negro Project. The Negro Project was but a precursor to what eugenicists wanted to implement on a much larger scale, by convincing leaders in the African American Community to support Planned Parenthood under the guise of “helping the black man.”

“The main objectives of the [proposed] Population Congress is to…apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”

– Margaret Sanger, “Plan for Peace”, 1932 Senate hearings


Read what Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, wrote in a letter to Pathfinder Founder, Clarence Gamble ,

“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. The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation [of Eugenicists] as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We don’t want the 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.”

Clarence Gamble, mentioned above funded the North Carolina Eugenics Society. Click Here : Clarence Gamble. Gamble also supported Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Movement. Sanger and many of her board members and presidents were members of the American Eugenics Society.

Listen to what the State of North Carolina’s Eugenic Board (Funded by Sanger supporter- Clarence Gamble) did to this “African American woman” : Elaine Riddick
( Interview From the film: Maafa21)

Back to Pathfinder
Pathfinder International is currently run by board members who are supporters of Planned Parenthood, doctors for Planned Parenthood, or are Board members of Planned Parenthood, and other population control organizations. In May of 2010, Pathfinder International , which Epstein served with and also issued The Memorandum of Understanding with International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). According to a press release, the MOU establishes a jointly agreed framework for continued collaboration between the two organizations. The documents reads in part, “IPPF and Pathfinder share a common commitment to improve the lives and promote the reproductive health and rights of individuals and couples. Together, Pathfinder and IPPF have entered into this agreement to facilitate deeper collaboration to promote sexual and reproductive health and rights globally…” Reproductive Rights is code for abortion on demand !

IPPF stands for “International Planned Parenthood Federation” , so you can see that on top of the eugenics founding of both Pathfinder and Planned Parenthood- they have agreed to work together because their goals are the same.

Back to FAIR:

Also on FAIR’s board is Joyce Tarnow a former Abortion Clinic Owner from Florida – currently on FAIR’s National Board of Advisers . Tarnow, who recently retired from her abortion business to work in anti-immigration work full time, has made stunning comments about Haiti in the past and recently reinforced her outrageous point of view after the earthquake . Read her views of Haitians here: Florida abortionist on Haiti, “Stew in your own juices” More on Tarnow’s Darwinian beliefs in an interview from the film: Maafa21 clipped below:

FAIR’s Founder: John Tanton-“Population Control” motive for “Immigration” work

Original FAIR BOARD ow scrubbed

In 1975: John Tanton the founder of FAIR wrote The Case for Passive Eugenics You can read that here

In These Times reporter CHRISTOPHER HAYES, writes that as early as the ’50s, Tanton ( FAIR’s founder) avidly read reports from the Population Reference Bureau and by the time long time population control advocate: Paul Ehrlich’s book “The Population Bomb” was published, Tanton and his wife, Mary Lou had already started work on the first Northern Michigan chapter of Planned Parenthood. “I believed in the multiplication tables,” says Tanton. “Since I was a physician and could do something about birth control, it struck me that this was where I could make my contribution to the conservation movement.”

Some history on Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion chain of clinics and they are well funded by many population control and eugenics organizations , including our own federal government. Planned Parenthood sets up their abortion centers primarily in immigrant and minority neighborhoods, making sure from the inside of the USA that the numbers of minorities are kept down. This is called “Negative Eugenics” and Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger wrote quote substantially about this in her publication, the Birth Control Review. She also allowed many racist and eugenic writers to be published there. One such writer and Board member of Sanger’s American Birth Control League (later renamed Planned Parenthood) was Lothrop Stoddard, often quoted by the KLAN.
Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger was a featured speaker for the KLAN. Sanger admitted in her autobiography that she was invited at LEAST a dozen times to speak to the KLAN and now Planned Parenthood’s highest award is named in Sanger’s honor. The KLAN, last I heard was a “RACIST” Organization, yet no one condemns Sanger including Planned Parenthood. Sanger and many of Planned Parenthood’s founding board members were also card carrying members of the racist American Eugenics Society ! Margaret Sanger believed in EUGENICS and founded Planned Parenthood based on that belief ! For details on Sanger’s racism and factual information on how Planned Parenthood has taken racist donations, watch the film mentioned above: Maafa21 (http://www.maafa21.com)

Pioneer Fund:
Pioneer Fund’s eugenic roots also connect to Planned Parenthood. In Fact, most of the “Founders” of Pioneer Fund also worked closely with Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger. Harry Laughlin and Frederick Osborn , both founders of Pioneer Fund were members of the American Eugenics Society and members of Sanger’s American Birth Control League which changed it’s name to Planned Parenthood, they also wrote regularly in Sanger’s Birth Control Review. Laughlin and Osborn also signed Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood” published in her review in April of 1938.


According to Truman State University , Laughlin was placed in charge of the Eugenics Record Office of the Department of Genetics of the Carnegie Institute of Washington, D. C., from its origin in 1910 until 1921 and director from 1921 until 1940. Dr Laughlin served as the eugenics expert for the Committee on Immigration and Naturalization, U. S. House of Representatives from 1921 to 1931; the Eugenics Associate to the Municipal Court at Chicago, 1921 to 1930; the U. S. immigration agent to Europe for the Department of Labor from 1923 to 1924; and was a member of the permanent Immigration Commission of the International Labor Office of the League of Nations in 1925.

He also was a member of the Galton Society, the Eugenics Research Association, the American Society of International Law, the American Statistical Associate, president of the American Eugenics Society 1927-28, associate editor of the Eugenical News from 1916 to 1939, secretary of the Third International Congress of Eugenics in 1932, and president of the Pioneer Fund, Incorporated, from its origin until 1941.

Laughlin published numerous articles and books on eugenics, eugenical sterilization, immigration, genetics, and various phases of inheritance including racing capacity in thoroughbred horses. It is his work on eugenical sterilization and immigration restriction for which he is best known. Laughlin’s Eugenical Sterilization in the United States established him as an “expert” on the topic. His model sterilization laws were used by many of the more than 30 states that passed eugenics sterilization laws. Germany’s 1933 sterilization laws were also modeled after Laughlin’s. Laughlin’s immigration studies, which seemed to support the idea that recent immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe had a higher percentage of “socially inadequate” persons than other immigrants, led to the highly restrictive immigration quota system of 1924 which favored immigrants from Northern Europe.

Some history about how Laughlin influenced the 1924 Immigration Act:
According to Paul Lombardo, University of Virginia
In 1911, Immigration Restriction League President Prescott Hall asked his former Harvard classmate Charles Davenport of the Eugenics Record Office (ERO) for assistance to influence Congressional debate on immigration. Davenport recommended a survey to determine the national origins of “hereditary defectives” in American prisons, mental hospitals and other charitable institutions. Davenport appointed ERO colleague Harry Laughlin to manage the research program.

The Public Health Service (PHS), whose duties included performing medical inspections of disembarking passengers at Ellis Island, also adopted eugenic arguments to help stem the flood of “inferior stock” represented by the new immigrants. Beginning in 1914, the Surgeon General and a number of senior officers in the PHS became publicly aligned with the eugenics movement. They took prominent roles in eugenic organizations and published articles to support the eugenicists’ position in the immigration restriction debate. The key role of PHS physicians as medical guardians of U.S. ports – particularly at Ellis Island – gave the PHS additional credibility.

Without specific support from eugenicists, by 1917, Congress had expanded the legal definition of those “likely to become a public charge” to include: “all idiots, imbeciles, feebleminded persons, epileptics, insane persons…,” “persons of constitutional psychopathic inferiority…, and” “mentally or physically defective..,” Later involvement of eugenicists further broadened that definition by specifying the immigrant groups most likely to represent what Laughlin called the “socially inadequate.”

In 1920, Laughlin appeared before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Immigration and Naturalization. Using data for the U.S. Census Bureau and a survey of the number of foreign-born persons in jails, prisons and reformatories, he argued that the “American” gene pool was being polluted by a rising tide of intellectually and morally defective immigrants – primarily from eastern and southern Europe. Sympathetic to Laughlin’s message, Committee Chairman Albert Johnson of Washington State appointed Laughlin as “expert eugenics agent.”

In this capacity, Laughlin conducted research from 1921 to 1931. He took a fact-finding trip to Europe, used free postage to conduct large-scale surveys of charitable institutions and mental hospitals, and had his results published by the Government Printing Office. His research culminated in his 1924 testimony to Congress in support of a eugenically-crafted immigration restriction bill. The Eugenics Research Association displayed a chart beneath the Rotunda of the Capitol building in Washington showing the cost to taxpayers of supporting Laughlin’s “social inadequates.”

The resulting law, the Immigration Restriction Act of 1924, was designed consciously to halt the immigration of supposedly “dysgenic” Italians and eastern European Jews, whose numbers had mushroomed during the period from 1900 to 1920. The method was simply to scale the number of immigrants from each country in proportion to their percentage of the U.S. population in the 1890 census – when northern and western Europeans were the dominant immigrants. Under the new law, the quota of southern and eastern Europeans was reduced from 45% to 15%. The 1924 Act ended the greatest era of immigration in U.S. history.

Upon signing the Act, President Calvin Coolidge commented, “America must remain American.” This phrase would become the rallying cry of anti-immigration sentiment until after World War II. The eugenic intent of the 1924 law and the quota system it established remained in place until they were repealed by the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.

Numbers USA , founder Roy Beck, and their ties to John Tanton/Planned Parenthood

Groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and its research arm, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), are the inheritors of the Progressive Movement’s anti-immigration mantle. John Tanton, who founded FAIR, CIS, Numbers USA and a plethora of other anti-immigration groups, is a self-described progressive who first became involved in public policy issues in the Sierra Club and Planned Parenthood, later becoming president of Zero Population Growth. John Tanton mentored Roy Beck , who then founded Numbers USA with Tanton’s help.

NUMBERSUSA EDUCATION AND RESEARCH FOUNDATION BOARD OF DIRECTORS

From the website of Numbers USA: Roy Beck Founder of Numbers USA

Roy H. Beck is the Executive Director and President of NumbersUSA Education and Research Foundation. One of the nation’s first environment-beat newspaper reporters in the 1960s and a journalist for more than 25 years, Mr. Beck became a full-time policy analyst of immigration and U.S. population issues in 1991. He has written four books on immigration, environment and the U.S. labor market, and on ethics, religion and public policy. He is co-author of numerous studies of sprawl and has been published in scores of magazines, academic journals and newspapers. He founded NumbersUSA in 1996. Mr. Beck has annually led teenagers on Habitat for Humanity work trips since 1990, is an enthusiastic guitarist, and has served in nearly all capacities of leadership at Mount Olivet United Methodist Church, Arlington, Virginia.

Numbers USA – Founding Board Member with Ties to Planned Parenthood
:
Don Weeden is the Executive Director of the Weeden Foundation which supports a wide range of programs that aim to preserve biodiversity, nationally and internationally. Prior to taking that, Don had a nearly 25-year career in the international population and economic development field, serving in various field and management positions for Columbia University, International Planned Parenthood Federation, and other non-governmental organizations devoted to increasing access to family planning services. He is a specialist on South and Southeast Asian population issues, where he lived and worked for nearly 20 years. He has also worked in Mexico, Eastern Europe, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Don has a Masters in Population Planning (Public Health) from the University of Michigan.

_________________________________________________________________________

Roy Beck’s ties to Tanton and Tanton-founded anti-immigration groups go back at least to 1991. Tanton hired Beck as a consultant “because of his unique background in environmental reporting, and his understanding of the immigration issue,” Tanton wrote in a 1997 memo. At least through the summer 2000 issue, Beck served as editor of John Tanton’s The Social Contract. (SOURCE: http://www.newcomm.org/pdf/CNC-NUSA.pdf )

In 1985 – this Tanton letter makes it clear that Tanton wanted to couch his population control agenda under different terms such as the Center for Immigration Studies working together:
Tanton write, “After careful and prolonged study, the FAIR Board has concluded that a “Think Tank” on the scale of Worldwatch Institute is n eeded. For credibility. “This will need to be independent of FAIR, though the Center for Immigration , as we’re calling it as we’ re calling it , is starting off as a project of FAIR. A grant from the Wood Prince Foundation of Chicago under wrote our study. and provided for hiring an initial director, now accomplished.

John Tanton – Is Chairman of the US “Umbrella Foundation” – You will see that NUMBERS USA comes under that Umbrella: Here

In this 2001, John Tanton Letter, Tanton clearly shows how he and Roy Beck are connected-
Tanton writes, “Roy Beck and I think we have come up with an idea that can actually move the battle lines on the immigration question in our favor. While we are working on other ideas to move Democrats, this one involves using the recently released census data to show Republican members of Congress, the Administration, and the party’s leadership how
massive immigration imperils their political future. The goal is to change Republicans’ perception of immigration so that when they encounter the word “immigrant,” their reaction is “Democrat.” …Our plan is to hire a lobbyist who will carry the following message to Republicans on
Capitol Hill and to business leaders: Continued massive immigration will soon cost you political control of the White House and Congress.”

_________________________________________________________________________
Another organization investigating the racist connections of John Tanton and FAIR is: The Southern Poverty Law Center, who nail it when they write about John Tanton’s racism – but consistently refuse to mention the clear connections of John Tanton, Pioneer Fund, Numbers USA to Planned Parenthood. Why would this be? Because SPLA is well connected to the ACLU and the abortion lobby. So – you can see they also have an agenda which keeps them muzzled on showing the entire truth here – despite the fact that the documentary Maafa21 shows clearly that Planned Parenthood is promoting Black Genocide.

SPLC Writes, “FAIR, CIS and NumbersUSA are all part of a network of restrictionist organizations conceived and created by John Tanton, the “puppeteer” of the nativist movement and a man with deep racist roots. As the first article in this report shows, Tanton has for decades been at the heart of the white nationalist scene. He has met with leading white supremacists, promoted anti-Semitic ideas, and associated closely with the leaders of a eugenicist foundation once described by a leading newspaper as a “neo-Nazi organization.” He has made a series of racist statements about Latinos and worried that they were outbreeding whites. At one point, he wrote candidly that to maintain American culture, “a European-American majority” is required.
FAIR, which Tanton founded and where he remains on the board, has been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Among the reasons are its acceptance of $1.2 million from the Pioneer Fund, a group founded to promote the genes of white colonials that funds studies of race, intelligence and genetics. FAIR has also hired as key officials men who also joined white supremacist groups. It has board members who regularly write for hate publications. It promotes racist conspiracy theories about Latinos. And it has produced television programming featuring white nationalists.”

The fact that Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger also met with White Nationalists like Stoddard and the KKK failed to make SPLC’s report.

_________________________________________________________________________
Roy Beck ( And John Tanton ) have both stated that they were frustrated that groups Like Planned Parenthood because they did not believe that Planned Parenthood went far enough. Tanton said this was the reason he started another pro-abortion pro-population control group: Zero Population Growth (ZPG). Hayes again states that, in 1969, Tanton started and chaired the population committee of his local Sierra Club chapter, and when Ehrlich and like-minded environmentalists founded the advocacy group Zero Population Growth (ZPG), he became one of its most active members, rising to its presidency in 1975. By then, the birthrate for Americans had declined below the replacement rate, but the American population was projected to keep growing. Tanton settled on the culprit: immigration.

Writing with Leon Kolankiewicz, in a piece entitled: The Environmental Movement’s Retreat from Advocating, Roy Beck Founder of Numbers USA writes:

Roy Beck
By the 1990s, for example, Planned Parenthood no longer played any role in advocating for U.S. population stabilization to protect the environment. Its focus had narrowed to making sure that women had full access to the whole range of options concerning fertility and births. That had always been a primary mission of Planned Parenthood, but one of the major purposes of empowering women had once been to reduce U.S. population growth.

And speaking of the pro-abortion group Zero Population Growth, founded in 1968 by Professor Paul Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb, here is ZPG ( Zero Population Growth) Linking to Numbers USA :

Note: They also link to Alan Guttmacher, Teen Wire a Planned Parenthood Website, California’s for Population Stabilization (CAPS) another Planned Parenthood filled Immigration Org, and the United Nation;s Population Fund

From Numbers USA:
Third World Growth — California Style
Fast Facts on U.S./CA Population
Almost 60% of all pregnancies in the US are unintended. Better access to family planning, including contraception, is necessary so that women can choose the size of their families and delay pregnancy.
The teen pregnancy rate in the U.S. is twice that of any other industrialized nation and most of these are unintended. 85% of health insurance plans cover abortions and sterilizations, but only 15% of these cover all 5 FDA-approved reversible methods of contraception. The cost of providing coverage for contraceptive drugs is $1.25 per month per employee, although the out-of-pocket expense to an uncovered employee is $25- $50 a month.
92% of California’s population growth during the past decade was due to mass immigration (immigrants plus births to immigrants here). This state receives 40% of all immigrants to the U.S.
The U.S. now accepts over 1 million legal immigrants per year which is almost 5 times its traditional level. Illegal immigration is soaring to almost 800,000 per year.
In just fifty years the U.S. population will be almost a half billion (almost double) with 90 percent due to mass immigration since 1970.

NumbersUSA attacks Senator Cornyn!

According to Texas GOP Vote:
It doesn’t take much for anti-immigration group NumbersUSA to get their knickers in a twist. When they got word that Texas Senator John Cornyn (who has a lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 92.00) was attending Thursday’s White House meeting on immigration reform, Roy Beck with Numbers USA fired off an angry blast email calling on recipients to jam the Senator’s office phone lines….
Check out Roy Beck’s famed “gumball” presentation! In it he also makes it clear that he is OK with U.S. support for “family planning” (i.e., abortion) to reduce population growth in third world countries. I am sure Planned Parenthood agrees. It is a real shame that the views pushed by Beck and his group have been accepted by so many in the GOP. Are his principles really consistent with conservative Texas GOP principles?
Beck’s email also warns Cornyn against committing “political suicide.” Folks, take a look at this report and tell me who is committing political suicide. 2008 provided a great test case for the “enforcement only” proponents, here are some highlights:

Racism is an issue with these Immigration Organizations- and most of the ones I quoted are also connected to Planned Parenthood. Watch
Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America (Clip Below) to learn much more about Planned Parenthood’s connections to Eugenics and racism:

Another organization with leadership in Planned Parenthood is PFIR, Progressives for Immigration Reform. PFIR’s President and Chair, William N. Ryerson, is the Founder and President of Population Media Center. Before founding Population Media Center, he served as Director of the Population Institute’s Youth and Student Division, Development Director of Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania, Associate Director of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, and Executive Vice President of Population Communications International.

Ryerson also has connections to another anti-immigration organization called: Californians for Population Stabilization or (CAPS). In addition to his connections to Planned Parenthood, CAPS’ 2009 annual report mentions a Board Member, Executive-at-Large:

Henry Mayer,M.D. a was a practicing physician and Clinical Professor of Medicine at Stanford University’s Medical School. He also
served on the board of directors of San Mateo County Planned Parenthood
and produced the documentary film which focused on eugenic sterilization, called “Tomorrow’s Children.”

Who is John Tanton and Why Should You Care? Just Ask Joyce Tarnow.
By Gail Shepherd, Thursday, May. 20 2010 @ 4:01PM


Joyce Tarnow (hearts) John Tanton
John Tanton’s name is getting a lot of play. Depending on who you talk to, Tanton is either a raging pro-eugenics racist with a deep-seated animosity toward brown people — or — a beaming, professorial Renaissance man with an insatiable curiosity and an infallible moral compass.

Why should you care? Because Tanton founded the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and now sits on its board. We’ve referenced him in a couple of blog posts recently. A lot of people have FAIR, and Tanton, on the brain because of developments on the fronts of immigration, population control, and Amendment 4, the “slow growth” amendment to the Florida Constitution that we’ll all be voting on in November.

Just about anybody involved in either immigration control or reform has ties to, or opinions about, FAIR. The organization is said to be behind the recent Arizona Senate Bill 1070, for example. Lake Worth City Commissioner Scott Maxwell, who is staunchly in favor of strict immigration control, is a FAIR supporter. As is Lesley Blackner, the Palm Beach Attorney who started the Hometown Democracy movement that resulted in getting Amendment 4 on this year’s ballot. Whether you’re an environmentalist, a slow-growth advocate, a white nationalist, an immigration reformer, or a women’s reproductive rights activist, the road you’re marching will eventually lead you back to John Tanton. The Southern Poverty Law Center published an inflammatory report late last year labeling FAIR a “hate group” based in large part on its evaluation of Tanton.

And then there’s Joyce Tarnow. New Times has been covering Tarnow for nearly a decade: She’s a former Deerfield Beach activist and gadfly, a population control expert who once ran an abortion clinic in Fort Lauderdale. Tarnow, who lives in North Florida now, is a vocal advocate for Amendment 4. She has strong opinions on immigration. She’s all for zero population growth. And she thinks Florida’s environment is going to go down the tubes if we don’t brush the beach sand out of our eyes and really look at what’s happening to our water and our wildernesses.

Tarnow, now in her 70s, is as fierce a bulldog as ever. She bared her canines at us this week, when she fired off an email to defend John Tanton, whom she called “a personal friend of mine.” Here’s what she had to say:
John Tanton has been a population control advocate for more than forty years. I first met John in 1972 when he and I served on the national board of Zero Population Growth. His contributions to the social issues of our day are courageous and well thought out, issues that too many are afraid to tackle.

A small example was his suggestion to the board and staff of ZPG that we should look into radio advertising of condom use. That did not fly then, but now we have Viagra all over the air waves.

John and his wife Mary Lou organized the Planned Parenthood chapter in Petoskey, Michigan. He started FAIR because he saw that U.S. population was being propelled by the immigration policy changes by Congress starting in 1965. He started the Social Contract magazine that features the best writers on population, immigration and the impacts on our resources and our citizens.

John is a stellar individual and is slandered by an organization [ed: Tarnow is referencing the Southern Poverty Law Center here] that collects a lot of money but spends very little on its stated mission.

COMMENTS LEFT ON THE ABOVE STORY:

Steve Ellman says:
According to Joyce Tarnow, John Tanton’s Social Contract magazine “features the best writers on population, immigration and the impacts on our resources and our citizens.” Really?
Here’s what a random walk through some recent issues revealed to me:
-Spring 2009. An article titled “Mexico Mainlines Malevolence …and Immigration Policy Brings It Here,” in which author Brenda Walker begins with the observation that “Mexicans’ cultural fondness for the dark side is well known” and concludes with the “bottom line” that “One of the world’s worst possible immigrant groups (other than Muslims of course) is coming to America in record numbers and burdening us with their toxic culture of crime, sexism, bribery, pedophilia, slavery, child kidnapping, educational apathy, animal cruelty, superstition and general corruption.”
-Spring 2009. A book review titled “Madison Grant and the Preservation of Buffaloes, Redwoods, and America’s European Heritage,” in which critic F. Roger Devlin writes approvingly of the book’s subject, Madison Grant, a leading early 20th century racist and eugenicist, who believed that “the American human ‘type’ was degenerating under the onslaught of ‘invasive species’ from Southern Europe and the ghettos of Poland.”
-Superficially less, um, malevolent, the Winter 2009-2010 issue includes an article titled “Adios, WQXR!” in which author Gerda Bikales, writes, “In the annals of America’s gradual retreat from the bedrock of Western culture, July 15, 2009 is a milestone to remember. On that day, the New York Times announced the sale of its iconic classical music station to Univision, the giant Spanish-language media company.” Gerda concludes by observing that “in an era of rapid change driven by mass immigration and failing assimilation, a nagging question presents itself: when does cultural enrichment become cultural displacement?”
Bikales’ lament seems comical, initially: Good lord! Them immigrants are the death of classical music.
But really, what sort of paranoid mind attributes the decline in the popularity of Beethoven and Brahms to demographic change first and foremost? It appears Bikales has never heard of MTV. But such is the power of xenophobia.
-Also in the Winter 2009-2010 issue, another choice book review, “Spiraling Toward Chaos,” in which critic Fred Elbel blithely passes on these nuggets of wisdom: “A derivative of a historically subjugated people is the engrained Mexican characteristic of the inability to trust anyone. ‘The concept of cheating is accepted. It is universal in Mexico. It is a holdover from the Aztec system of accommodation’”and “Similarly, the rule of law is not held in high esteem in Mexico as it is in the U.S. ‘When Mexicans do abide by the rule of law it is not for conceptual or moral reasons. They abide by the rule of law in order to not get apprehended by the police…The inability to accept responsibility for any mistake is a dominant Mexican characteristic…’”
I could go on, but I’m sure one gets the idea. John Tanton may be Joyce Tarnow’s “personal friend” and “a stellar individual.” But whatever else Tanton may be or do, as a publisher he is an active, willing host to racist thought and a panderer to anti-immigrant paranoia.

Gail Shepherd says:
Some clarifications from Joyce Tarnow, via email:
Two points: I was a Pompano Beach resident
for thirty-three years….owned and ran the Women’s Clinic for
twenty-eight years—hardly a gadfly with that kind of commitment.
And, forty years working to remedy the overpopulation of the U.S.
I posted the Puppeteer article to you today…..let me know your
reaction. Hopefully, you will think it worth another article. Maybe
from the standpoint of who and why are so many foundations funding open
borders groups. In the case of the SPLC, the attacks make their cash
register ring. Morris Dees is the true hate monger.

Great you expose these two: Abortionist FAIR board member, Joyce Tarnow and FAIR Founder John Tanton. Both in favor of Pop Control and both have ties to abortion and Planned Parenthood (You failed to mention this). Have you watched the documentary: Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America? This film proves how the eugenics groups use abortion to target minorities. Tarnow and Tanton are connected to abortion, and many on the board of FAIR either used to be on the board of or are currently on the board of Planned Parenthood the nation’s largest abortion clinic chain who set up in Black and Hispanic neighborhoods, just like Tarnow did when she ran her abortion clinics. The film: Maafa21 exposes why they do this and I find it revealing that these same people with connections to population control and PLANNED PARENTHOOD in FAIR, are now behind the anti-immigration movement. This is NOT About immigration, it is about EUGENICS. Watch Maafa21 (http://www.maafa21.com) and see why.

Obama may be planning to grant amnesty to illegal aliens by executive order

Posted in Immigration, Obama with tags , , , , , , on June 23, 2010 by saynsumthn

With his approval rating plunging, along with the economy and faced with growing criticism for the lack of federal enforcement of U.S. immigration laws, Obama knows that there will be no vote before November, on so-called ‘comprehensive immigration reform,’ (amnesty for illegal aliens).

Unable to deliver amnesty as he promised, at least through Constitutional means, there is mounting concern that Obama will use the power of executive order to do so.

FACE off with AG Eric Holder, illegal trespass on American soil – nothing – Trespass abortion clinic WHAM !

Posted in Eric Holder, free speech, Immigration with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2010 by saynsumthn

It would seem to me that when Attorney General Eric Holder gets involved – the case must be huge ! After all with millions of illegal aliens tresspassing on American Soil and committing violent crimes, one would think that prosecutions to uphold the law would be pouring out of the AG’s office, right? WRONG !


Is the Obama administration doing Pro-Life Profiling ?

But where is the AG focusing his legal strong arm? To help protect Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics: Read Article

Feds sue abortion opponent from S.A.
By Guillermo Contreras – Express-News
Web Posted: 06/18/2010 12:00 CDT

Juan Antonio Gaona regularly protests outside clinics in San Antonio that offer abortion services, including the Planned Parenthood on Babcock Road.
But when he stepped inside the clinic and interfered with operations in April 2009, he crossed the line, the Justice Department says.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday sued Gaona in San Antonio under a little-used federal law, the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, and seeks a restraining order against Gaona and a $10,000 civil penalty.

The FACE Act, signed into law in 1994 by President Bill Clinton, makes it unlawful for a person to use force, threat of force or physical obstruction to intentionally injure or intimidate a person who seeks reproductive health services.

It was the first time the FACE Act, which allows authorities to pursue criminal charges or a lawsuit, has been used in South Texas, according to Justice Department records. Four people have been criminally prosecuted in Texas under the law, records show.

The suit against Gaona, 56, is the fifth filed nationwide since President Barack Obama took office, and the third in Texas, records show.

In all, the law has resulted in 58 indictments and 20 lawsuits, including the one against Gaona.

The suit “shows us how pro-abortion this administration is,” said Gaona, who’s retired from the Army and a veteran of the Vietnam War. “I’m a pro-life Catholic. We believe life begins at conception and ends at natural death.”

The Planned Parenthood Trust of San Antonio and South-Central Texas declined comment on the case because it’s in litigation, but said the FACE Act is necessary. A spokeswoman also said the clinic has been cooperating with the FBI for a year.

“I think the protection and safety of our patients is of utmost importance,” said Yvonne Gutierrez, the organization’s vice president for public affairs. “While the FACE Act is not used often, it was enacted for a reason, and that’s to keep the men and women who enter our clinic safe and, really, free from harassment.”

The lawsuit said Gaona for several years has been a vocal protester on the sidewalk outside the Planned Parenthood clinic, at times using profane language and direct personal criticisms at clinic employees.

On April 17, 2009, the suit said, Gaona entered the clinic and used his body to block the entrance to the patient waiting room. He also yelled at the clinic’s receptionist to “repent” and referred to the clinic’s staff as “baby killers,” the suit said.

While he blocked the door, the suit said, a patient was escorted by clinic volunteers from the parking lot into a vestibule area, and Gaona yelled, “You can’t do this!” and, “You can’t go in there!” The staff then escorted the patient through an administrative door, and Gaona had to be physically removed by two clinic staff members because he refused to leave when instructed, the suit said.

Gaona hadn’t seen the lawsuit Thursday, which asks a judge to order him to stay 25 feet away from the clinic and to not violate the FACE Act.

He disputes the version of events, but admits he has entered the clinic and two others during his protests.

He said he went into the Planned Parenthood because he was trying to counsel a young man he had encountered in the parking lot earlier that week.

The young man, Gaona said, had told him that he and his partner, who already had children, couldn’t afford to have another.

“I went into that clinic because I felt God was telling me to do it,” Gaona said. “I went there to reach that boy and tell him there were other alternatives.”

But Gaona said he doesn’t cuss, and did not block any entrance: “That’s a lie of the devil. I’m a Christian and I don’t use profanities.”

Gaona has 21 days to respond to the suit.

“I’m going to try and get a lawyer, if I can’t I guess I’ll roll with the punches,” he said.
UPDATE:

In a telephone interview with LifeSiteNews.com Friday, Gaona said that the claims of the lawsuit were false, and that he did not block the doorway as he stood in the abortion centre. Gaona, who has witnessed outside the facility on Babcock Road 2-3 times a week for 7 years, said he felt compelled to enter the building after conversing with a young man whose partner was entering the clinic for an abortion.

“I had been out there praying and it broke my heart what he told me – I was trying to convince him to give up the baby for adoption, he said, ‘I would rather kill the baby than give him up for adoption,'” Gaona told LifeSiteNews.com (LSN). “And I couldn’t convince him otherwise. And it seemed like the more I prayed, the more I felt compelled to try to go in and reach him.”

After returning on the date the man’s partner was scheduled to have the abortion, Gaona said he entered the facility in one last attempt to persuade him. “They wanted me to leave, but I had to make a point before I left. I tried calling them to repentance and telling them they’re babies they’re killing,” he said.

Gaona claims he remained for “two or three minutes” in the doorway before walking out “of my own accord,” at which point he says an angry clinic worker “assaulted” him, knocking him to the ground and choking him. He says the assault, as well as the “slander” claiming that he used profanity, could be the subject of a possible counter-suit. “I don’t use profanity, I’m a strict Catholic,” said Gaona.

The Texas pro-lifer said he has entered abortion facilities before, prior to the passage of the FACE Act; one such instance elicited a civil lawsuit which was dismissed. He maintains that his witness outside clinics is “very peaceful.”

Just recently a pastor was arrested for praying on what used to be called: PUBLIC PROPERTY, until Planned Parenthood the nation’s largest abortion clinic , built a fence on the public way . What did the DC Cops do? After 10 years of pro-lifers praying on that very spot with no threst of arrest- the DC Cops had the pastor arrested for praying.

Pelosi to Catholics — Immigration Reform is a ‘Manifestation of Our Living the Gospels’

SO MUCH FOR SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE – Imagine a politician TELLING the Church WHAT TO PREACH ??? No Media Outrage here?

Suppose a politician told churches we must SPEAK for the UNBORN against Abortion – well – then you’d hear a thunder of news criticism.

Pelosi no more believes the Bible than the man on the moon – her policies on abortion and homosexuality deny every word of the Sacred Text.

May 10, 2010 — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she has told Catholic cardinals, archbishops and bishops that she wants them to speak from the pulpit for immigration reform and tell Catholics who oppose it that reform is a manifestation of our living the gospels.

In her comments at the Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill on May 6, Pelosi specifically referenced illegal immigrants in America, saying as a practical matter, we cant say to people, 12 million of you, go back to wherever you came from or go to jail.

I would hope that there’s one thing that we can do working together as we go forward that speaks to what the Bible tells us about the dignity and worth of every person (NOTE – What about the dignity and worth of the UNBORN person?_) — and that is on the subject of immigration, Pelosi said in her remarks. Because I think the Church is going to have to play a very major role in how we, in how people are treated.

The cardinals, the archbishops, the bishops that come to me and say, We want you to pass immigration reform, disclosed Pelosi. And I say, But I want you to speak about it from the pulpit.’

I want you to instruct your, whatever the communication is — the people, some of them, oppose immigration reform are sitting in those pews and you have to tell them that this is a manifestation of our living the gospels, said Pelosi. Our patron saint of San Francisco, St. Francis of Assisi, he said, preach the gospel –sometimes use words. We need the words to be said because it isn’t being picked up automatically.

Pelosi, a Catholic and a Trinity College alumnus, said the estimated 12 million people currently living in America illegally cannot be told by society to go back to where they came from or go to jail.

We have to respect that dignity and worth (of the individual), and recognize that the Church has an important role to play in that, she said. We don’t — as a practical matter, we cant say to people, 12 million of you, go back to wherever you came from or go to jail.

We cant do that, she said. But the newcomers to America are really, again, important to the constant re-invigoration of America, which is part of who we are and have always been unless were all Native American — God Bless them. But most of the people here came from someplace else.

Denver Examiner: Catholic Church refuses to fire abortionist from Catholic Hospital

Dr. Grossman: a Catholic Funded Abortionist in Colorado’s Four Corners

May 26, 5:38 PM • Gualberto Garcia Jones – Denver Independent Examiner

Dr. Richard Grossman M.D. is the only abortionist in over 200 miles, and he’s not shy about publicly touting his grisly profession.
Every Wednesday of every week, Dr. Grossman kills children at the Durango Planned Parenthood. He charges a sliding scale based on the age of the child. For killing a child of 5-11 weeks he charges $425, 12-13 weeks $515, 14-15 weeks $780, and 16-17 weeks costs $880.

I first learned of Dr. Grossman, on Wednesday, Novemeber 18, 2009. I was participating in a vigil outside the abortuary that was organized by Life Guard of La Plata, a Catholic non-profit organization that helps mothers in crisis pregnancies. During this vigil, pro-lifers told me about Dr. Grossman.

I already knew what abortionists do, and I was saddened to see approximately six young ladies escorted in to participate in the killing of their children. What I wasn’t ready for was to learn what Dr. Grossman did on the other days when he wasn’t killing children.

Dr. Grossman worked, and still works at a Catholic hospital, Mercy Regional Medical Center, as a staff physician with full medical privileges!
Here is a man that kills children once a week, and he is employed by a hospital that is supposed to share my belief that what he does is murder? What in the world was going on? I immediately fired off an email to my Bishops.

Despite repeated entreaties to my Bishops, I have not learned of any action being taken to end this scandalous situation. I have since learned that local pro-life activists (Catholic and Protestant) have been trying to get the Catholic church to step in and stop Dr. Grossman for at least three years!

It should be noted, that while I realize that it is scandalous to point out this ongoing situation within the Catholic church, it is a much more egregious scandal to let it continue unaddressed.

Dr. Grossman would not be able to financially maintain himself on what he earns killing children one day a week. Does this not make Mercy Hospital in Durango and the Catholic Church a material facilitator to the killing? In effect, the Catholic Church, Mercy Hospital, and the Catholic Health Initiatives (based in Denver) is subsidizing abortion services in the Four Corners area.

If that were not bad enough, and it is, Dr. Grossman openly promotes eugenics in his regular column for the local Durango newspaper, the Durango Herald in a column entitled Population Matters (BELOW) .

It seems that the Catholic church is not capable of putting a stop to Dr. Grossman’s evil audacity. The reason, according to local activists is that the hospital and the church fear federal employement discrimination lawsuits. There is however, a valid basis to believe that this Catholic hospital would be within its right to fire a murderer such as Dr. Grossman, although it is more likely that the church would lose a lawsuit from Dr. Grossman.

When it comes down to it what makes a church like the Catholic church great is its claim to be the repository of the Truth, not the health of its bank accounts.
In an age when the Catholic church is sued on an almost daily basis, wouldn’t it be refreshing if the church were sued for preventing child killing at its hospitals instead of for allowing children to be molested.

I for one would welcome the fight. In the meantime I will be helping activists in the Durango area protest, not only at the abortuary, but at the Catholic hospital that makes it possible for Dr. Grossman to kill children and still make a good living.

Population points to limits in thorny issue of immigration
by Richard Grossman
Article Last Updated; Sunday, August 23, 2009 9:33AM

Immigration is an important part of the study of human population. It is a part that I have tried to ignore because I have strong, but conflicted, feelings about it.

In December 2007, a large package arrived from our son Bryan and daughter-in-law before Christmas. They were here for its opening – and what a surprise it was! We marveled at a copy of a ship’s manifest dated August 28, 1906, showing the names of my father (age 4) and grandmother. They had traveled to Ellis Island, N.Y., aboard the S.S. Potsdam.

The downside of immigration to the United States is that we already are the most overpopulated country in the world, in a sense. We are not able to nurture all the people who would like to move here. Yes, the land can hold more people, but our extravagant consumption has made our numbers unsustainable.

My father didn’t talk much about his childhood. Growing up an Orthodox Jew, he was disowned by his family when he married my mother, a Christian. Despite their rocky start, my parents were together 60 years. I am happy that our country had an open immigration policy last century.

Our family received another benefit from immigration when Bryan e-mailed us that he was “the luckiest person in the world.” Previously hesitant to share details about his personal life, he had just met Ianina, his future wife. He had traveled to Ukraine partly because that is where “Papa Lou” (his grandfather) had been born.

Bryan returned to Ukraine a few months after his first visit with an engagement ring. It took several months to negotiate our country’s immigration laws, but Ianina received a 90-day fiancée visa. She flew alone to New York, where Bryan greeted her at the airport. It was the first time she had ever been on an airplane, and the first time outside her native land.
The first time we talked with Ianina we knew why Bryan considered himself so lucky. She had just started to study English and still had a heavy accent, but she was outgoing and charming. In those first weeks in New York, Ianina improved her English by traveling around the city with a camera. She would stop strangers on the street and ask them to take her picture, and then strike up a conversation.

Immigrants coming to the United States bring with them many wonderful characteristics. We are lucky to be able to enjoy many different authentic foods and other aspects of diverse cultures. Recent immigrants perform much of the menial work that citizens are loath to do; just look in the kitchens of Durango restaurants. People who leave their native lands often are more enterprising than those who stay behind; my father was a good example. You can thank (or curse) him if you ever have had a root canal done, because it was he who perfected that technique.

Many rich countries are facing a problem caused by decreasing population growth rates. They lack people to do strenuous labor, and some countries even import “guest” workers for this reason. Although our government doesn’t approve of illegal immigrants, parts of our economy depend on them.

There are several categories of foreigners who are granted legal admission to the United States. They include children coming to be adopted, a family member rejoining a family, people with needed skills (such as physicians), refugees and asylum seekers and spouses or fiancé(e)s, such as Ianina.

The downside of immigration to the United States is that we already are the most overpopulated country in the world, in a sense. We are not able to nurture all the people who would like to move here. Yes, the land can hold more people, but our extravagant consumption has made our numbers unsustainable. The ecological footprint of the average person in the United States is the largest for any country, and it is many times that of a person in a developing country.

When people move to our country, they usually increase their consumption, thus their impact increases. Fortunately, they also tend to have smaller families than they might in their home country.

Allowing some immigrants to enter the United States certainly serves our country’s purposes. Currently, more than 1 million people enter the country legally every year, and perhaps the same number enters illegally. What is the correct number of immigrants? I don’t know, but it certainly is fewer than the current million. The last time I wrote on this subject was 1998 when we allowed in 800,000 immigrants. I suggested 300,000 would be a reasonable limit, and it still seems that way.

The United States does not have a population policy, but it clearly needs one if we are going to live within sustainable limits. Slowing immigration would be an important part of such a policy.

Here is another of Dr. Grossman’s eugenic ideals – limiting births:

Title: Smaller Families for a Healthy Environment (E-Magazine)

You might think that there is not much difference between a family of two children and one with three, but there is a large disparity after a few generations. If each of your three children has three kids, and so on, you will have 27 great grandchildren. In five generations there will be 243 progeny. If there had only been two per couple, there would only be eight great grandchildren, and 32 great, great, great grandchildren. So at the end of five generations we compare 243 with 32; the difference is over seven fold!

People used to believe that a single child would be spoiled and would not prosper, but recent studies have shown that this is not true. In fact, an only child is likely to be a high achiever and to be well adjusted. Some up-to-date information about only kids can be found in prolific author Bill McKibben’s book Maybe One.

If you are concerned that an only child will suffer from the lack of siblings, there are ways to ensure the advantages of socializing with other kids. If you parent a single child, try not to focus all of your attention on her. Have her spend time with cousins. Choose a neighborhood that has children of compatible ages. Find activities for your child to do with other children; a good preschool is an excellent way to get children together. You might trade cooperative “sitting,” or be a day-care provider.

Those of us who choose not to bear children have a support group all our own: Childfree By Choice. If you are unsure about having kids, the group meets your needs with material for people still trying to make up their minds about being parents—there’s even a bunch of jokes about childlessness. More and more people are choosing the option to forego children. Now about one in five women will not bear any child, while a few years ago it was only one in six.

Doesn’t surprise me that another Planned Parenthood abortionist is in favor of Immigration Limitation, Population Control, and Eugenics. Take a look at what Planned Parenthood was founded on in the film: Maafa21 (Clip Below)

Rachel Maddow: “Arizona Anti-Immigration Law Written By Racists” is that a FAIR statement? What about the Planned Parenthood Connection?

After watching the above report , I found that CNN’s Rachel Maddow is leaving out a VERY important fact about the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), because many on FAIR’s board are former Planned Parenthood members and leaders, abortion clinic workers, and Zero Population Control Activists ! Just Google John Tanton– FAIR’S founder and see his links to Planned Parenthood in Michigan- In Fact, FAIR’s board member, Sarah G. Epstein, now serves on Planned Parenthood’s board in Washington. Also on FAIR’s board is Joyce Tarnow a former Abortion Clinic Owner from Florida – on FAIR’s National Board of Advisers . Tarnow made some stunning comments about Haiti in the past and reinforced her statements after the earthquake . Read her views of Haitians here: Florida abortionist on Haiti, “Stew in your own juices” More on Tarnow’s Darwinian beliefs in an interview from the film: Maafa21 clipped below:

What? Is Maddow just ignoring these connections because she approves of abortion, which Planned Parenthood is known for doing? But – why do they LOVE abortion so much and WHO are they targeting for abortion?

Maddow will never expose the fact that the beloved founder of Planned Parenthood- Margaret Sanger was a featured speaker for the KLAN. Sanger admitted in her autobiography that she was invited at LEAST a dozen times to speak to the KLAN and now Planned Parenthood’s highest award is named in Sanger’s honor. HUH ? The KLAN, last I heard was a “RACIST” Organization. Sanger and many of Planned Parenthood’s founding board members were card carrying members of the American Eugenics Society ! Margaret Sanger believed in EUGENICS and founded Planned Parenthood based on that belief !

Perhaps if Maddow wants to expose this racist link to the “Immigration Debate” she could expose FAIR’s Board links to Planned Parenthood and then expose how Planned Parenthood today places abortion clinics in Hispanic and Minority neighborhoods. Now abortion kills a disproportionate amount of black babies by 5 to 1 than white ones. COINCIDENCE?

Maddow also mentions the Pioneer Fund’s eugenic roots in her report- how come she ignores Planned Parenthood’s eugenic roots? In Fact, most of the “Founders” of Pioneer Fund also worked closely with Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger. Harry Laughlin and Frederick Osborn , both founders of Pioneer Founder were members of the American Eugenics Society and a members of Sanger’s American Birth Control League which changed it’s name to Planned Parenthood, they also wrote regularly in Sanger’s Birth Control Review. Laughlin and Osborn also signed Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood” published in her review in April of 1938. So, let’s recap, Pioneer is a eugenic and racist founded group but when the same people are endorsed by Sanger and Planned Parenthood they are not? HMMM….

Maddow should watch the documentary Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America (Clip Below) to learn much more about Planned Parenthood’s connections to Eugenics and racism:

Who is John Tanton and Why Should You Care? Just Ask Joyce Tarnow.
By Gail Shepherd, Thursday, May. 20 2010 @ 4:01PM


Joyce Tarnow (hearts) John Tanton
John Tanton’s name is getting a lot of play. Depending on who you talk to, Tanton is either a raging pro-eugenics racist with a deep-seated animosity toward brown people — or — a beaming, professorial Renaissance man with an insatiable curiosity and an infallible moral compass.

Why should you care? Because Tanton founded the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and now sits on its board. We’ve referenced him in a couple of blog posts recently. A lot of people have FAIR, and Tanton, on the brain because of developments on the fronts of immigration, population control, and Amendment 4, the “slow growth” amendment to the Florida Constitution that we’ll all be voting on in November.

Just about anybody involved in either immigration control or reform has ties to, or opinions about, FAIR. The organization is said to be behind the recent Arizona Senate Bill 1070, for example. Lake Worth City Commissioner Scott Maxwell, who is staunchly in favor of strict immigration control, is a FAIR supporter. As is Lesley Blackner, the Palm Beach Attorney who started the Hometown Democracy movement that resulted in getting Amendment 4 on this year’s ballot. Whether you’re an environmentalist, a slow-growth advocate, a white nationalist, an immigration reformer, or a women’s reproductive rights activist, the road you’re marching will eventually lead you back to John Tanton. The Southern Poverty Law Center published an inflammatory report late last year labeling FAIR a “hate group” based in large part on its evaluation of Tanton.

And then there’s Joyce Tarnow. New Times has been covering Tarnow for nearly a decade: She’s a former Deerfield Beach activist and gadfly, a population control expert who once ran an abortion clinic in Fort Lauderdale. Tarnow, who lives in North Florida now, is a vocal advocate for Amendment 4. She has strong opinions on immigration. She’s all for zero population growth. And she thinks Florida’s environment is going to go down the tubes if we don’t brush the beach sand out of our eyes and really look at what’s happening to our water and our wildernesses.

Tarnow, now in her 70s, is as fierce a bulldog as ever. She bared her canines at us this week, when she fired off an email to defend John Tanton, whom she called “a personal friend of mine.” Here’s what she had to say:
John Tanton has been a population control advocate for more than forty years. I first met John in 1972 when he and I served on the national board of Zero Population Growth. His contributions to the social issues of our day are courageous and well thought out, issues that too many are afraid to tackle.

A small example was his suggestion to the board and staff of ZPG that we should look into radio advertising of condom use. That did not fly then, but now we have Viagra all over the air waves.

John and his wife Mary Lou organized the Planned Parenthood chapter in Petoskey, Michigan. He started FAIR because he saw that U.S. population was being propelled by the immigration policy changes by Congress starting in 1965. He started the Social Contract magazine that features the best writers on population, immigration and the impacts on our resources and our citizens.

John is a stellar individual and is slandered by an organization [ed: Tarnow is referencing the Southern Poverty Law Center here] that collects a lot of money but spends very little on its stated mission.

COMMENTS LEFT ON THE ABOVE STORY:

Steve Ellman says:
According to Joyce Tarnow, John Tanton’s Social Contract magazine “features the best writers on population, immigration and the impacts on our resources and our citizens.” Really?
Here’s what a random walk through some recent issues revealed to me:
-Spring 2009. An article titled “Mexico Mainlines Malevolence …and Immigration Policy Brings It Here,” in which author Brenda Walker begins with the observation that “Mexicans’ cultural fondness for the dark side is well known” and concludes with the “bottom line” that “One of the world’s worst possible immigrant groups (other than Muslims of course) is coming to America in record numbers and burdening us with their toxic culture of crime, sexism, bribery, pedophilia, slavery, child kidnapping, educational apathy, animal cruelty, superstition and general corruption.”
-Spring 2009. A book review titled “Madison Grant and the Preservation of Buffaloes, Redwoods, and America’s European Heritage,” in which critic F. Roger Devlin writes approvingly of the book’s subject, Madison Grant, a leading early 20th century racist and eugenicist, who believed that “the American human ‘type’ was degenerating under the onslaught of ‘invasive species’ from Southern Europe and the ghettos of Poland.”
-Superficially less, um, malevolent, the Winter 2009-2010 issue includes an article titled “Adios, WQXR!” in which author Gerda Bikales, writes, “In the annals of America’s gradual retreat from the bedrock of Western culture, July 15, 2009 is a milestone to remember. On that day, the New York Times announced the sale of its iconic classical music station to Univision, the giant Spanish-language media company.” Gerda concludes by observing that “in an era of rapid change driven by mass immigration and failing assimilation, a nagging question presents itself: when does cultural enrichment become cultural displacement?”
Bikales’ lament seems comical, initially: Good lord! Them immigrants are the death of classical music.
But really, what sort of paranoid mind attributes the decline in the popularity of Beethoven and Brahms to demographic change first and foremost? It appears Bikales has never heard of MTV. But such is the power of xenophobia.
-Also in the Winter 2009-2010 issue, another choice book review, “Spiraling Toward Chaos,” in which critic Fred Elbel blithely passes on these nuggets of wisdom: “A derivative of a historically subjugated people is the engrained Mexican characteristic of the inability to trust anyone. ‘The concept of cheating is accepted. It is universal in Mexico. It is a holdover from the Aztec system of accommodation’”and “Similarly, the rule of law is not held in high esteem in Mexico as it is in the U.S. ‘When Mexicans do abide by the rule of law it is not for conceptual or moral reasons. They abide by the rule of law in order to not get apprehended by the police…The inability to accept responsibility for any mistake is a dominant Mexican characteristic…’”
I could go on, but I’m sure one gets the idea. John Tanton may be Joyce Tarnow’s “personal friend” and “a stellar individual.” But whatever else Tanton may be or do, as a publisher he is an active, willing host to racist thought and a panderer to anti-immigrant paranoia.

Some clarifications from Joyce Tarnow, via email:
Two points: I was a Pompano Beach resident
for thirty-three years….owned and ran the Women’s Clinic for
twenty-eight years—hardly a gadfly with that kind of commitment.
And, forty years working to remedy the overpopulation of the U.S.
I posted the Puppeteer article to you today…..let me know your
reaction. Hopefully, you will think it worth another article. Maybe
from the standpoint of who and why are so many foundations funding open

Great you expose these two: Abortionist FAIR board member, Joyce Tarnow and FAIR Founder John Tanton. Both in favor of Pop Control and both have ties to abortion and Planned Parenthood (You failed to mention this). Have you watched the documentary: Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America? This film proves how the eugenics groups use abortion to target minorities. Tarnow and Tanton are connected to abortion, and many on the board of FAIR either used to be on the board of or are currently on the board of Planned Parenthood the nation’s largest abortion clinic chain who set up in Black and Hispanic neighborhoods, just like Tarnow did when she ran her abortion clinics. The film: Maafa21 exposes why they do this and I find it revealing that these same people with connections to population control and PLANNED PARENTHOOD in FAIR, are now behind the anti-immigration movement. This is NOT About immigration, it is about EUGENICS. Watch Maafa21 (http://www.maafa21.com) and see why.
