The term “population control” too often deals in the abstract. A more honest assessment would redefine the term. “People control” or “government reproductive control” is more accurate. In today’s Brave New World of Covid hype and fear, the recommendations and mandates that have issued from Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s office, through the advice of his Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anne Zink, ought to be of interest. If the governor has refused some of her recommendations, the Marxists on the Anchorage Assembly, who control nearly half the state’s population, use her missives as Gospel.

Dr. Al Bartlett

In a shamelessly fawning interview by NPR in May of 2020, Zink endorsed the discredited Malthusian theories of her radical grandfather, the late Dr. Al Bartlett (1923-2013). Thomas Malthus, way back in 1798, predicted that the world would soon descend into starvation and poverty, due to “overpopulation.” Malthus did not foresee the Industrial Revolution that created untold wealth and a burgeoning food supply.

This was even more erroneously predicted in the 1968 cult-classic book, “The Population Bomb,”  by Stanford professor Paul Ehrlich. Unapologetically, Bartlett’s similar radicalism is all over the internet and YouTube. His career mantra has been so-called “exponential [population] growth,” and humanity’s inability to comprehend it. A favorite quote of his is, “The earth has exceeded its carrying capacity.” Another gem, following a global warming summit, was his press conference criticism of the various speakers’ refusal to directly recognize “over-population” as the cause of it.

Californians for Population Stabilization said, “Al has dedicated more than four decades to educating Americans about the perils and unsustainability of exponential growth – particularly of population.”

And, incredibly, Bartlett appears to endorse communist China’s long-discredited and vicious “One Child” policy. He gave China credit for avoiding an additional 300 million people because of this policy, and sympathized with their apparent wonderment as to why the rest of the planet’s governments have not followed suit.

All this would be irrelevant if Zink would disassociate herself from her grandfather’s radical legacy, but in the NPR article, she openly discusses her endorsement of him. “I think about him all the time,” she said, “particularly in this world of trying to understand exponential growth, and trying to keep our state from getting into a place of exponential growth.”

Say what, Dr. Zink? Did you really say that? Yes, you did.

You are worried about Alaska’s “exponential growth” with a stagnant population? And 1.1 people per square mile, which if transferred to Manhattan would give it a population of about 30 people? Have you not noticed Alaska gaining traction with a growing ability to feed itself, coupled with a local food industry in its youthful vigor? If Grandpa Bartlett’s Malthusian theories are correct, how exactly would you go about it implementing them for our state?

Let us ask the governor to consider vetting Anne Zink’s enthusiastic endorsement of the policies of population control advocate, her late grandfather Dr. Al Bartlett.

Would it include a relentless propaganda machine that feeds the COVID fears? How about suppressing knowledge of vax injuries, which include adverse side effects upon reproductive health for expectant or would-be mothers?

How about de-bunking inexpensive medical alternatives? Or de-credentialing and de-platforming courageous medical professionals who resist the approved government narrative that you incessantly promote? How about demonizing average citizens who are becoming vax refuseniks?

This is not all your work, but you do provide a backstop for local hospitals who ignore the “right to try” laws as Alaskans die – or people whose medical history simply cannot permit them to be vaxxed. Their doctors are refusing them standard treatments unless they accept vaccination, flying in the face of patient’s rights.

It is hard to ignore the 1,200 people who attended the Covid Early Treatment Summit last week, but the mainstream media has done its best to do just that, or have inserted snide comments about certain borough or municipal mayors “who are not doctors.”

That is selective sanctimony. Neither are members of the Anchorage Assembly, nor a certain bumbling and doddering fraudulent president, but they are never accused of lacking professional medical expertise when making dictatorial decisions for the rest of us citizen-peons.

A president is, however, supposed to be a constitutional expert, but that is also laughable. To be fair, he has had a lot of company throughout the history of the American presidency. But if the actions of Alaska and other states is any indication, his unconstitutional mandates are going to meet considerable resistance.

Let us ask the governor to consider vetting Anne Zink’s enthusiastic endorsement of the policies of population control advocate, her late grandfather Dr. Al Bartlett.

    Thank you so much, Alaska Wathman, for covering this pernicious agenda hiding unexposed in our puppet government. As a means of furthering the depopulation agenda, the global elite, who pull the strings behind the scenes, manufactured a pandemic planned a decade ago along with the messenger-RNA, spike-protein bioweapon, deceiving untold masses into believing it’s a safe and effective “vaccine.”

  • Jesse says:

    Thank You Watchman
    I tell others about your courage in reporting and to support your truth in Reporting.

  • Michael S Totten says:

    I said over a year ago that zink was connected to globalists,, but did you listen? Well now you know!

  • Ed+Martin+Jr says:

    Governor FIRE HER NOW!

  • Jen says:

    I bet Grandad Al Bartlett would recieve his grandkids with open arms and gratitude through Anne Zink and her husband. What Grandparent wouldn’t? If he wouldn’t the he would be a weird man. I bet Anne Zink and her husband look forward to the day when they can prepare their child for marriage and become grandparents through their own soon to be grown children.

    We are told from the beginning to multiply and subdue the earth. If they believed the bible, there is more than enough room in Heaven, Hell, and on a new Earth, which is exciting knowing there be no more man made pestilence diseases, no more greedy leaders storing up their earthly treasures and overconsuming.

  • Jen says:

    China’s one-child policy has had devastating economical and political effects: Abandoned girl babies, spoiled obese boys for being an only child by guilt layden parents, marriageable men far outnumbering the number of marriageable women, increased kidnapping of women and girls, increased abortions. Just as binding females feet, chinas one child policy was a bad idea and a Demonic.

  • Yetitrax says:

    I remember a video she posted where she was virtually alone in a park to take a jog. She put a mask on and insisted that we all follow. That day I stopped listening to anything she has had to say. I wish for the sake of our state, she had just kept on running.

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    Wow. Interesting. And disturbing. I for one would not want to be judged by the life of my mafia aspiring, bootlegging, speakeasy owning, multiple murder charged, philandering, grandfather. But alas, I do not endorse his lifestyle choices. Ok, maybe the bootlegging .
    Dr. Zink does need to be forthright about her beliefs and motives given the responsibility snd voice afforded her for our state. What say her to all of this?

  • Steve+Peterson says:

    Don’t forget her white shame that she voiced in the spring of 2020 when BLM was everywhere.
    This woman is pure poison but seems to have Dunleavy under her spell.
    She needs gone.

  • Mongo Love Candy says:

    Anne Zink has gotta go!!

  • Becky R says:

    No wonder she swallowed the cdc recommendation to have pregnant women take the jab. She has no resistance to regular medical protocol that says “NEVER compromise the baby in utero with a vaccine”. How does she go to sleep at night by embracing an unhealthy stance. She embraced eugenics a long time ago.

  • Robert Weel says:

    Anne Zink along with Fauci need to be fired immediately! Pathetic Morons!

  • Paul says:

    If you read the book “The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide” was written by Robert Jay Lifton and published in 1986, you’ll see the chilling parallels to Zink, Fauci etc…

  • DoneWithIt says:

    The people that support neo-malthusian philosophy – which is a post industrial, depopulated, utopian society – are to be feared.
    Do not kid yourself – the Chinese flu mass hysteria is a depopulation campaign and a surveillance capitalism plan.
    Evil at its core.
    Bet she supports murdering unborn babies and animal rights.
    Bet she supports experimental gene therapy mandates.
    She is a bad influence to have around Dummy Dunleavy.

    I knew something was not right about her. Get her out of Alaska!

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Agree with you all
    Ann has to Go. Just like her shenanigans traveling through Canada going to the beach in California last year. You can stay in California and Don’t come back.

  • Ekim+Kcidrub says:

  • Matt+Myers says:

  • Michael Alexander says:

    Good work gentlemen. It’s time for a new doctor in the house. In other words Gov. Dunleavy channel Donald Trump and say YOU’RE FIRED.

  • Larry Wood says:

    And, all becomes clear. I wondered why she was so stuck on following Fauci’s lead without deviation. She was a bit upset with the governor’s relaxing the mandates and finally ending them.
    Zink had a $30K Yurt built in her backyard to isolate herself from her family and her staff. Her state staff reported to their offices, but Zink remained hidden in her Yurt during the pandemic.
    No wonder she is opposed to the use of Ivermectin and Hydrooxychlorquine treatment protocols.
    Gotta keep the population down.
    I wonder if her patients know her outlook regarding their survival in relation to reducing the population?

    • Dee Cee says:

      The LACK of medical treatments for COVID (both ambulatory and post-hospitalization) is the CRIME OF THE CENTURY. Every time I meet a new doctor, I ask them to tell me what the treatment protocol is: take some Tylenol, drink lots of water, and get good sleep. Come to the hospital if you start having a hard time breathing, so we can put you on a vent, make you comfortable, and lull you into a coma and die. That’s the answer. CRIMINAL.

  • Dee Cee says:

    I wish she had been fired a long time ago. Now, this is the first I’ve ever heard of her possible ideological position, but how many times has she lied to us? Here’s what I think the standard should be for a person in her position (one where she can dictate public policy at all levels of government statewide): Lie once, you get the benefit of the doubt. Lie twice, you’re fired. Every single time I hear a medical professional make the following statement: “The COVID vaccine is safe and effective” I remind them that they don’t even say that about Tylenol… and the only reason they feel they can get away with that lie is because the PREP Act fully indemnifies them of any harm that may result from the lie. Stop tolerating liars, bullshitters, and political activists in permanent, non-elected bureaucratic positions. Fire the Liars.

  • Michael says:

    Last I knew … humanity had the choice of free will . This is not Logan’s Run . Or some other DYSTOPIAN horribly thought out sci-fi movie . If she wants to volunteer herself for discard , that is her right . But she , nor anyone one else , should hold a position that sets up anybody else for euthanasia . Witnessing these medical policies , and the food and water policies of this country … that is exactly what is happening .

  • Sally+Pollen says:

    Good article, Bob Bird. Once again Ak Watchman has uncovered an ugly truth. I always thought it very ironic that a Dr Zinc was in favor of masks and vaxs when zinc, the trace mineral, had/has a big part in killing the invented virus. In Genesis Chapter 1, God Almighty told mankind to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, then after Noah’s flood in Chapter 9 he said it again. I fail to find where God has rescinded that command.

  • Dan says:

    Means, opportunity, and with the revelations in this article, motive. Is it now any wonder why hydroxychloroquin and ivermectin are so difficult to obtain in Alaska? Did Bob Bird discover the reason why Providence patients are being denied these life saving drugs and being allowed to die like William Topel? Someone should get to the bottom of this to prevent more deaths. Perhaps it is time to file criminal complaints to start an investigation against bureaucrats who make rules that could be taking lives. If Dr. Malone was correct in stating the Alaska will be facing a new wave of Delta Plus this winter, the results of such an investigation could save hundreds of lives by freeing medical practitioners to use fully FDA approved medications that have been proven safe over many decades of use around the world without fear of losing their licenses.

  • Nancy says:

    I remember when Ann Zink saidShe supported BLM and if it wasn’t for her White privilege (now we know it was an elite privilege)she souldn’t of gotten where she is today.Someone posed a question to her.”If that is true why don’t you step down and let a person of color take your position.”?….She danced around that one.Fraud

  • Jen says:

    If a person such as Dr. AL Bartlett cared so much about population control, Then why did he have children? If he chose to keep his sperm to himself, there be no Dr. Anne Zink nor her children nor any of his other children and grandchildren. Three less people on the earth. I am following his logic. He had wrong thinking. That’s just like an prochoice parent advocating for abortion while protecting the life of their own child in their own womb. All comes from peoples wrong thinking.

  • Charlotte says:

    Who vetted this obscure Zinc for Matsu? For CMO of the Alaska Dept of Health? She wasn’t exposed until the Watchman did the work? She waltzed into Matsu from CO and worked in the ED from 2010-2018, served on the Board of Trustees from 2012-2018 and then landed at the Dept of Health as CMO in 2019. No one knew she was interested in preventing exponential (population) growth in Alaska? What an ironic position to land in, but not a coincidence.
    Was it her grandfather’s influence that made her attractive for this position? Surely it could have been filled by a physician who didn’t hold such extreme views and who would remember, “First Do No Harm”.
    The hoax plandemic was meant to cause panic and fear and make people beg for a vaccine. Covid is not what killed so many (MSM falsely reported the stats). It was the bioweapon that has killed at least 200,000 in the U.S., an illegally mandated weaponized MRNA injection which will be followed by unending boosters for nonexistent variants.
    The masks have a substance on them that is also in the vax and they are forced upon us to isolate, enslave and make us sick rather than keep us safe.
    The swab has NO value other than to give a dose of the vax and to pierce the blood brain barrier, which is why it was such a painful procedure.
    Zink, we Alaskans are taking back our freedom. Don’t wait to get fired, pack up your yurt, take your white privilege and get out. You lied to, misled and caused injury to Alaskans for two years. Shame on you.
    Were it not for the Watchman doing real journalism, we might never have learned who Zink really is. We thank you, Watchman!

  • dalton stokes says:

    Eddie Burke and I exposed this her two years ago when this first started. Have you ever heard the phrase “they would never do that!!!” Maybe YOU would never do that but they are evil enough to do it and it’s hard for us to comprehend that kind of evil, even though it’s happening right in front of our face.

  • Ruth Ewig says:

    This is not a Biblical Worldview. It is pantheism and therefore atheistic. People, like Dr. Al Bartlett, and now Dr. Vink, think they know better how to solve earthly problems without God; but look at their leadership decisions. Very deadly for people believed the lie and get abortions, killing those created in the image of God.
    These lost people need to accept Jesus as Savior and look at life through the Scriptures. They contain all the advice we need. They need to repent.

  • Theresa says:

    Now, let’s all call Dunleavy’s office and express our disapproval of Zink and ask him to fire her.

    When Mr. Harrington finished speaking on Friday and pointed out the willful crimes being perpetuated against the Alaskan people by Zink and company it was all based on case law already established, her statement about false information is correct the only problem is she is the only one giving false information.
    And Zink if you think this is going to blow over your wrong you don’t know who your up against and neither does the assembly !!!

    P.S. Mayor you were given an open door to shut down your adversaries if you didn’t pick up on that, and siding with Dunleavy big mistake.

    I hope humanity comes to their senses. Never should we allow ourselves to be lead by those whos hearts are filled with fear. Fear is a mind killer and making decisions based on fear will only lead to more destruction of self. Fear is the lubricant on slide of the downward spiral. Bravery, although may be difficult at first, is the first step on the stairway of self elevation.
    We cannot depend on the doom and gloomers, their future is not bright and it is not for us. Let them self destruct. We have a universe to explore.

    There are lots of scary things out there. When you read what’s on the internet, it’s scary,” Zink said, adding she’s heard concerns ranging from long-term vaccine side effects to efficacy worries and fears that authorities have added tracking microchips to each vaccine.

    However, Zink said vaccines are among the safest tools available in medicine because they are studied so rigorously. She noted that preventing COVID-19 infections through vaccination is much safer than rolling the dice with an illness.

    “Getting the virus is like a choose your own adventure,” she said. “You don’t know what will happen.”

    She said the vaccine contains a small amount of the virus and that significant adverse reaction is rare worldwide. She also noted that most vaccine reactions happen in the first two months after vaccination, so she does not expect long-term side effects.
    Prove it!
