In one or two generations, have American’s become so advanced that experiments on the innocent such as those we conducted at Muskogee by infecting poor blacks with Syphilis or the spraying of highly radiated gases upon the poor of the slums of St. Louis become an evil of our past? Apparently not. I have no doubts that there are far worse “experiments” still being undertaken by “our” government that remain and may remain covert and buried. When no one is ever prosecuted and, in many cases, actually promoted in the various government bureaucracies even after such atrocities are discovered there is little personal or group risk associated. In today’s world of moral and ethical relativism the idea that the ends justifies the means is likely more acceptable than it was in American one hundred years ago, when at least we could admit to being a Christian nation. Bureaucracies unshackled by the rule of law or moral and ethical restraints, if not already so, will inevitably become corrupt and evil. The proof of supporting this statement is all around us.
In 1931, with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation, Dr. Cornelius Rhoads infected human subjects with cancer cells. Rhoads later established the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah, and Panama. It was named the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. While there, he began a series of radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients.
About the same time, Dr. Harry Clay Sharp was castrating inmates at the Indiana Reformatory to cure convicts of masturbation.
David Jordan, president of the University of Indiana, also lectured his students that paupers were parasites. In 1902 in his book Blood of a Nation, he first proposed the concept of blood as the immutable basis for race. Jordan left Indiana to accept a position as the first president of Stanford University.
the American Breeders Association and the Eugenic Record Office remained frustrated with the progress of removing undesirables from the gene pool. Although several states had laws allowing forced sterilization, they were scarcely applied. Only in California, where more than 200 were sterilized, had the law been applied to more than a couple individuals.
In 1924, Virginia passed a sterilization law for the feebleminded.
Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. closed with words that still echo throughout time: “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”
Until the Buck ruling, many states with sterilization laws avoided using them. Of the 23 states with such laws, Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, South Dakota and Utah recorded no sterilizations. Idaho and Washington State recorded one each; Delaware recorded five cases. Kansas had recorded 335; Nebraska, 262; Oregon, 313; and Wisconsin 144. California recorded 4,636 cases. From 1927-40, the totals increased at a horrific rate. North Carolina recorded 1,017 cases of forced sterilization; Michigan, 2,145; Virginia, 3,924; and California, 14,568. In total, no less than 35,878 people were sterilized. Following Laughlin, the Nazis adopted a law in 1933 that opened the way to sterilizing more than 350,000 people. “Laughlin proudly published a translation of the German Law for the Prevention of Defective Progeny in The Eugenical News. In 1936, Laughlin was awarded an honorary degree from the University of Heidelberg as a tribute for his work in ‘the science of racial cleansing.’”
Euthanasia through neglect was all too common in America in the 1920s and 1930s.
The intellectual view of eugenics that Hitler adopted was strictly from the American eugenics movement. One of the books that Hitler studied was Foundation of Human Heredity and Race Hygiene, written by three American eugenicists. In Germany, Julius Lehmann published the book. Lehmann was at Hitler’s side during the Beer Hall Putsch. It also was Lehmann’s villa where Bavarian officials were held hostage in the immediate aftermath of the failed coup.
In June 1939, the Rockefeller Foundation tried to deny that it was funding Nazi science. This was a lie, because the Rockefeller trust was sending money through the Emergency Fund for German Science. The sleight of hand provided the foundation with a window of deniability. Funds to von Verschuer continued through the war years, supporting several concentration camp experiments. In 1943, he received funding from the German Research Society for experiments packaged under the label of serology. The experiments required large volumes of blood from twins at Auschwitz.
While Mengele escaped to South America to avoid war crimes charges and a sure date with the hangman, the Allies never charged von Verschuer with war crimes or crimes against humanity. In 1946, the Die Neue Zeitung, an organ of the U.S. occupying power, published an article listing all the doctors who fled Germany. On May 3, it followed with accusations against von Verschuer by Robert Havemann, a communist and chemist who had resisted the Nazis. He openly accused von Verschuer of using Mengele to get eyeballs and blood from those murdered at Auschwitz. Von Verschuer dictated a sworn statement to the occupation-appointed administrator of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute that he had always opposed racial ideas. He further swore that Mengele himself was transferred to Auschwitz against his will. In fact Mengele could not wait to get involved in the war, and enlisted.
Havemann organized a committee of scientists at Kaiser Wilhelm Institute to examine the evidence against von Verschuer. The committee concluded that he had engaged in despicable acts in concert with Mengele. The report was sealed for the next 15 years. Then a second board found von Verschuer innocent of committing any crimes or transgressions against inmates of Auschwitz. Von Verschuer’s record was expunged of any transgressions, and he soon became a respectable scientist in Germany and the United States.
In 1950-1951, John Foster Dulles, chairman of the Rockefeller Foundation, led John D. Rockefeller III on a world tour, focusing on the need to stop the expansion of the nonwhite populations. In the fall of 1952, Rockefeller and Dulles established the Population Council with money from the Rockefeller fortune. The American Eugenics Society soon moved its Yale University headquarters into the offices of the Population Council, and the two groups merged.

JunkScience.com has confirmed through the Freedom of Information Act that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency paid the University of Southern California (USC) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to conduct experiments testing whether exposure to diesel exhaust harms children. These experiments are illegal under the Nuremberg Code, California state law and federal regulations concerning the protection of human subjects in medical research. Background Based on documents received by means of FOIA during 2012, JunkScience.com reported that the EPA had for many years conducted illegal scientific experiments in which human study subjects were intentionally exposed to air pollutants the EPA considered lethal at any dose or exposure.
These experiments were deemed illegal for two basic reasons:
(1) Federal regulations prohibit EPA researchers from placing human study subjects at risk of death; and
(2) EPA failed to disclose to the study subjects that their participation in the experiments entailed a risk of death.
The EPA Office of Inspector General validated these findings in a March 2014 report.
While all of the foregoing experiments involved adult humans subjects, it came to the attention of JunkScience.com in late 2012 that the EPA-funded researchers at USC may have also experimented on children. Not only domCalifornia state law and federal regulations prohibit endangering children in non-therapeutic scientific experiments,mbut as minors, children cannot provide the legally-required consent to participate in such experiments. JunkScience.com’s effort to investigate this matter was not only rebuffed by the USC researchers but the EPA also endeavored to cover-up the child experiments in February 2013. After multiple FOIA requests, the EPA finally released some documents to JunkScience.com in December 2014.
