    LUXEMBOURG, July 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The native-born population of the European Union (EU) is on the decline thanks to more deaths than births in 2017, new government figures reveal. On Tuesday, the European Union’s statistics office Eurostat released a report on the latest population data, just in time for World Population Day on Wednesday. It reveals that the EU saw 5.3 million deaths and 5.1 million births in 2017. The overall population increased from 511.5 million to 512.6 million, however, thanks to immigrants making up the difference. “With 82.9 million residents (or 16.2% of the total EU population on...
  • Make Babies Great Again: Hungarian Fertility Rates Rise, Turns Back Demographic Decline

    Hungary’s pro-family culture has resulted in a rising fertility rate for married women which is “winding back the clock” on demographic decline — a trend once deemed irreversible in Europe and used by globalists to justify mass migration from the third world. “The country is not just experiencing a fertility spike; Hungary is winding back the clock on much of the fertility and family-structure transition that demographers have long considered inevitable,” writes the author of “Is Hungary Experiencing a Policy-Induced Baby Boom?” from the Institute for Family Studies website. “That’s unusual,” author Lyman Stone wrote, “as most countries around the...

    With over 37 million residents, Greater Tokyo is the most populous metro area in the world today. Urban growth is not unique to Japan. By 2030, the United Nations predicts that the world will have 43 megacities, defined as metro areas with more than 10 million people. Most of them will be in developing regions in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. The UN recently released its annual World Urbanization Prospects, which estimates which metro areas will have the highest populations by 2030. On World Population Day this Wednesday, let's take a look at the top 13: 13. Greater New...

    Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton underperformed relative to Barack Obama in 2012 among most demographic groups, according to new research published in the Journal of Political Marketing. “People have long been interested in how different demographic groups vote in elections. The role of demographics in 2016 received a lot of attention from the campaigns, media outlets, etc,” said study author Aaron C. Weinschenk of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. “In part, I think the fascination stemmed from the fact that the electorate in 2016 was the most diverse U.S. electorate in history and many people thought this would be...

    A few years back, I saw an anchor on network news observe that the average age of abortion doctors was above sixty, and there weren’t many such doctors left. Then I saw something I was entirely unaccustomed to seeing on network news: a story about Project Rachel, and how it was helping post-abortion women. There was also a remark about how sonogram pictures of the fetus were a new technology influencing opinion. Then they showed a picture of such a sonogram. This was unprecedented. It is quite clear that the behavior surrounding abortion is changing. Abortions used to be...

    "The support of the family, motherhood, and childhood has been and remains among the unconditional state priorities," says the Russian President. Parents with many children "have chosen for themselves a happy, grateful, but very difficult and responsible path that is full of inconvenience and suffering, demanding colossal devotion""Support for the family has been and remains one of the unconditional state priorities." This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin at the awards ceremony for the Order of Parental Glory. "We need to increase the birth rate," Putin said. He noted that this is "a reflection and continuation of the changes...
  • How Muslim Migrants Are Reshaping Russia's Dying Countryside, One Village At A Time

    "'Better you than the Chinese,' that's what my ex-boss told me," the small-framed Soliev says between double shifts as a stoker at the village school, earning him around $250 a month, nearly twice the average Tajik wage. The arrival to urban centers and the countryside of Soliev and millions of other mostly Muslim labor migrants from Central Asia is at the center of what could emerge as Russia's most radical ethnic makeover in centuries. Half of the students in Soliev's school are their raven-haired children, and their wives, in long skirts and head scarves, shop for groceries at a store...

    A new book—tweeted out by the president himself—argues that America is in the midst of a populist realignment. For two years, the American media has been stuck in the movie Groundhog Day, replaying the 2016 election over and over in the hopes of extracting some new insight about an outcome it didn’t see coming. While some of this work comes from an earnest place—national reporters sense they got the story wrong, and now they’ve been to the heartland to see what they missed—in aggregate, they’re easily caricatured: the Trump voter as blue-collar Baby Boomer, out of a manufacturing job, a...
  • Japan's single women a burden on the state, MP says

    An MP from Japan's governing party has been accused of sexism after he said young Japanese women should have more children or face being a burden on the state. Speaking at an LDP party meeting, Kanji Kato said young women should have at least three children. He has since retracted his remark, local media reported. Last year the percentage of children in Japan fell to its lowest level since records began more than 100 years ago. Financial and other incentives to encourage bigger families have had little impact. Mr Kato said that when he gives wedding speeches he tells the...

    There has been a vast, largely unheralded migration in the U.S. over the past decade. Not because of weather, or amenities. But because of taxes. Recently, Wallet Hub published a list of states ranked by their tax burden, based on property taxes, income taxes and sales taxes as a share of personal income. The five states that impose the biggest tax burden on their residents are, in order: New York, Hawaii, Maine, Vermont and Minnesota. The five states with the lowest tax rates: Alaska, Delaware, Tennessee, Florida and New Hampshire. Right away there are some obvious similarities between the groups....

It does not include atheism or no religion, and only shows pluralities, meaning the group shown may not be an absolute majority in the county. The county-level data shows intriguing patterns across the US.

    EuropeÂ’s native population is not just aging, it is disappearing. The political and financial establishments rely on false official projections. Despite the UN Population Division prognoses that fertility rates will soon rebound to replacement rates, such a phenomenon is nowhere to be seen. In all European countries native populations have extremely low fertility and they are in full decline, and there are no signs that this will change anytime soon. Whatever official statisticians try to make you believe, an increase in fertility and the growth of populations in countries like France, the UK and Sweden is 100% migration related. These...

    Russia has had to pay a demographic price for Vladimir Putin’s aggression in Ukraine and Syria amounting to 180,000 children who would have been born save for Kremlin policies. According to Rosstat, Russian mothers gave birth to 203,000 babies fewer in 2017 than they had the year before, a decline of 10.7 percent. This year, they are on pace to give birth to 360,000 fewer than in 2017, a decline that matches those in the first post-Soviet years. Given that marriages did not decline in number but in fact rose last year, one has to ask: What has happened with...

    Have Republicans lost their hold on Morris County? Editor's Desk By Tom Bergeron Morris County | Nov 30, 2017 at 12:01 pm Tom Bergeron/ROI-NJ The sign commemorating Gov. Chris Christie Drive in Morris Plains. OK, let’s get the joke out of the way. Gov. Chris Christie, whose national political ambitions were sidetracked by his connection to a traffic jam, had a short access road named after him last week. The catch: This short road, no more than a half-mile long, is being built to alleviate traffic problems around a park in his home county of Morris. Now, let’s get to...

    More Democratic voters than Republicans have cast ballots ahead of next month’s primary elections in Texas, in what some party officials interpret as a new sign that a blue wave is building ahead of the midterm elections. The Texas Secretary of State’s office said 168,000 voters had cast ballots in the Democratic primary in person or by mail in the state’s ten largest counties through the end of Sunday. By contrast, 138,000 voters had cast ballots in the Republican primary. It is the first time in a decade that Texas Democrats have turned in more ballots than Republicans at this...

    Feminism and liberal hatred of themselves and America are guilty of murdering our political, social, cultural, and religious institutions. They are acting with deliberate malice of forethought, motive, means, and opportunity. Like larva burrowing up from the rotting carcass of their International Communist dream, they have co-opted the Soviets plan to destroy America from within. In this, they have succeeded beyond Lenin's wildest dreams to divide America by race, sex, class, ethnic background, and religion under the banner of diversity. Their weapons have been Multiculturalism and Politically correct abridgment of our speech, and the Democrat Party. Their cry has been...

    A group of GOP senators are preparing to introduce an immigration plan that lines up with President Trump's framework as the Senate barrels toward a heated debate over the issue. Seven GOP senators, led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), will file the bill, known as the Secure and Succeed Act, on Monday. "Our proposal is supported by the President, who’s come a long way to reach a compromise. This is the only Senate proposal that has any chance of passing the House and being signed into law," Grassley said in a statement. The legislation mirrors Trump's framework by offering a...

    The news of Russia's birth rate dropping by 10.6 per cent in 2017 to reach its lowest level in 10 years, despite government measures to boost fertility rate has prompted debate online. Former Deputy Premier Alfred Koh lambasts Russian authorities in previous years, for attempting to attribute a birth rate rise to Mr Putin's measures, saying it was due to "a generation of people born during a baby boom under Soviet leader Gorbachev that has reached child-bearing age". Koh argues that the Kremlin should take responsibility for the current situation. In his Facebook post that has had over 700 likes...
