  • Raping and Impregnating Infidels: “Another Form of Jihad"

    How the terrorists kill two birds with one stone. Because more numbers equate more power and influence, Muslims from all walks of life—including Muammar Gaddafi—have made clear that the act of procreating is a form of jihad.  Thus,  in the U.K., “Muslim hate fanatics plan to take over Britain by having more babies and forcing a population explosion,” a report revealed back in 2008: “The swollen Muslim population would be enough to conquer Britain from inside.” A Christian Eritrean volunteer and translator who worked in migrant centers in Germany, and was often assumed to be Muslim by the migrants, confessed that “Muslim migrants...

    The U.S. marriage rate is lower than at any point in over a century, with only 6.5 unions per 1,000 people, a government statistics agency reported Wednesday. The National Center for Health Statistics' National Vital Statistics System, a division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said data for 2018, the most recent year analyzed, showed a decline from 6.9 marriages per 1,000 people in 2017. The 2018 figure is the lowest rate since the federal government began collecting data in 1867. "Millennials [referring to those born between roughly 1980 and 1996] are in peak marriage years, their 20s...

    On the menu today: The possibility of another wave of Americans moving out of the big cities, the likelihood of some future pandemic further down the road, and how the Red America–Blue America divide is likely to be altered when we emerge from this crisis. Yesterday on my work Facebook page, a reader asked, “Why is it that the places Covid-19 show up the most are in Democrat controlled areas?” As much as I’d like to believe that all the troubles in the world can eventually be traced back to Bill de Blasio, I responded, “Probably because ‘the places it...

    Adding a city the size of Philadelphia in just one year hardly means we are on the cusp of a decline in population, as The New York Times article suggests. A recent news article by Sabrina Tavernise in The New York Times warned U.S. population growth has slowed so much that the Wuhan virus might tip the country into population decline this year. It is the latest in a string of articles, editorials, and columns recently that mislead the public about the nation’s demographic future. Like other writers, Tavernise anchors her warnings by pointing out that the rate of U.S....

    It has long been a cultural phenomenon that when people are confined to their homes due to dramatic weather events, babies start springing forth nine months later. Nearly half the worldÂ’s population is confined to their homes with two primary tasks: 1. Do not catch nor spread COVID-19. 2. DonÂ’t go nuts from boredom or cabin fever.In trying to accomplish No. 2, people are playing more board and card games. Others are catching up on sleep and preparing more homecooked meals. These are very good things.Husbands and wives are also finding themselves with plenty of time for other activities, and...
  • ‘No way out’: Demographics drive GOP nosedive on West Coast

    In the early 1990s, the population of Bend was around 25,000 and leaned Republican. A lumber mill operated along the banks of the Deschutes River in Oregon’s high-desert country. Today, the lumber mill is an REI outdoor recreation store. The population has quadrupled. And for the first time in memory, the number of registered Democrats in Deschutes County recently eclipsed the number of Republicans. The transformation shows how demographic shifts and the GOP’s tack further to the right are helping push the party into a nosedive along the West Coast. The last Republican presidential candidate that California went for was...

    It's hard not to be a conservative and revel in the chaos that the dominance of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is causing in the Democrat Party presidential primaries, as their establishment works to reject their party's populist choice similar to what the Republicans tried to do to Donald Trump in 2016. Like with the Republicans in 2016, it will be difficult for the Democrat elites to reject the people's choice. Sanders' lead is demonstrable, perhaps even insurmountable, with all of the momentum accumulated behind him, as his competitors dilute the vote of waning moderate and conservative voters among Democrats. Every...

    Evangelical Christians make up a huge swath of the world’s population. But most of them reside in Asia, Africa, and Latin America — not in North America, a new study has found. French researcher Sebastian Fath estimates that there are about 660 million evangelicals in the world, representing a little over a quarter of all 2.5 billion Christians. According to Fath, the largest share of evangelicals live in Asia, with about 215 million adherents. China has 66 million, India has 28 million, Indonesia has 16 million, the Philippines has 13 million, and South Korea has 9 million. Africa has the...

    South China Morning Post ^ | 01/28/2020 | Yi Fuxian
    China’s official demographic data in 2019 has seriously overestimated the country’s actual birth rate and population size, a grave mistake that will lead to disastrous policymaking if leaders blindly take these numbers as fact. My estimates show that China’s actual population size should be 1.279 billion at the end of 2019, or 121 million fewer than the officially stated 1.4 billion. The actual number of births in China last year should be about 10 million instead of 14.65 million, as reported by the National Bureau of Statistics. It doesn’t require rocket science to see the absurdity of China’s official demographic...

    NEW YORK, January 10 (C-Fam) Even with adjustments for longer, healthier living, the UN’s latest population figures show rapid aging and economic unpreparedness across the globe. By each of the three metrics used in the latest UN report on aging, only Africa is projected to avoid the harsh effects of aging in the coming decades, a world where the number of elderly is projected to more than double, reaching more than 1.5 billion. According to World Population Prospects 2019, by 2050, one in six people will be over the age of 65, up from one in eleven in 2019, as...

    UNION TOWNSHIP — Theodore Jakubowski has seen this before. The 64-year-old man saw it as a child growing up in Union Township, as Italian, Irish and Polish families came to his community in droves after World War II and learned to live together despite their differences. And now things are changing again in Union, and in few places in New Jersey is that change happening as quickly or as completely as it is here in this town of 56,600.

    New birthrate figures show that China has so far failed to reverse the effects of its longtime one-child policy — a change that policymakers say is necessary to forestall the long-term economic consequences of an aging and shrinking population. The National Bureau of Statistics of China released the new data on Friday, the same day it announced that the country's GDP growth has fallen to its lowest level in nearly 30 years. Last year, there were 10.48 births per 1,000 people, the lowest birthrate since 1949, the year the People's Republic of China was founded. The number was down from...
  • New census data contradicts conclusion that red states will lose seats in 2020

    12/31/2019 6:34:14 AM PST · by Red Badger · 45 replies ^ | December 31, 2019 | CQ Livingston
    Just over a week ago, reports started streaming in that census data was indicating a sharp shift in congressional seats from red states to blue states. At the time, the analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) showed a net gain in blue states as high as 24 seats, which would have dramatically hampered the GOP’s ability to regain control of the House of Representatives and win in the Electoral College. Now, new data released by the Census Bureau indicates red states will actually gain four seats. This analysis jibes better with reports this month that California was seeing...
  • Joe Scarborough: GOP Could Be Doomed Forever After 2020

    Buh-bye forever, Republicans! That's Joe Scarborough's prediction—or perhaps just his fondest wish. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough predicted: "We may look back at 2020 as a last competitive election against the Republican and the Democratic Party." Scarborough asserted that "chances are very good that by 2024, because of demographic changes, Texas goes blue." Scarborough adopts the patronizing view that people will vote their skin color instead of their interests; that voters of color will docilely remain on the Democrat plantation. If African American and Hispanic unemployment rates remain at historically low levels, as they have under President Trump, there's good...

    Do you like crowds? When you take the kids to Disney World or Six Flags in the middle of summer, do you relish the idea of not being able to lift your arms without touching another person? Do you enjoy waiting two hours just to ride a two-minute ride? When you pull into the DMV, the doctor’s office, or your favorite restaurant, does your heart quietly skip a beat when there’s a line out the door? Does being stuck for hours in rush hour traffic in Los Angeles or any other major American city excite you? When you take your...

    Democracy depends on the consent of the losers. For most of the 20th century, parties and candidates in the United States have competed in elections with the understanding that electoral defeats are neither permanent nor intolerable. The losers could accept the result, adjust their ideas and coalitions, and move on to fight in the next election. Ideas and policies would be contested, sometimes viciously, but however heated the rhetoric got, defeat was not generally equated with political annihilation. The stakes could feel high, but rarely existential. In recent years, however, beginning before the election of Donald Trump and accelerating since,...

    When it comes to Catholic demographics — think birth rate, membership and new clergy — researchers know where to look if they want to find the good news and the bad news. It you are seeking new life and growth, all roads lead to Africa — where the Catholic population has grown by nearly 250% since 1980. Anyone seeking bad news can examine trends in Europe. Take Germany, for example. The Catholic church lost 216,078 members in 2018, according to the German Bishops’ Conference. Researchers at the University of Freiburg predict that Catholic membership totals will fall another 50% by...

    Tim Hugo, the last Republican legislator in the Virginia suburbs closest to Washington, calls himself "Delegate Pothole." He tweets about neighborhood detours, car break-ins and lane closings. "Be sure to find an alternative route!" he wrote ahead of repair work at one intersection. Ask him what impact President Donald Trump's unpopularity in Virginia is having on next week's pivotal state election, and Hugo says, "I focus on the local issues." Ask whether Democrats are succeeding in nationalizing the last election before the 2020 presidential contest, and Hugo says, "I focus on the local issues."

    Outgoing Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), the only black Republican in the House, warned in a new interview that the GOP needs to adapt and start looking like the rest of America or "there won’t be a Republican Party in this country." In an interview with Axios that aired Sunday, Hurd said that "we know where the trends are going" regarding demographics in America and that Republicans "know what we need to do."
