  • Why the Announcement of a Looming White Minority Makes Demographers Nervous

    11/22/2018 6:26:06 PM PST · by DesScorp · 73 replies ^ | 11-22-2018 | Sabrinia Tavernese
    The graphic was splashy by the Census Bureau’s standards and it showed an unmistakable moment in America’s future: the year 2044, when white Americans were projected to fall below half the population and lose their majority status. The presentation of the data disturbed Kenneth Prewitt, a former Census Bureau director, who saw it while looking through a government report. The graphic made demographic change look like a zero-sum game that white Americans were losing, he thought, and could provoke a political backlash. So after the report’s release three years ago, he organized a meeting with Katherine Wallman, at the time...

    Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) will wait until the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is buried before naming his successor. "Out of respect for the life and legacy of Senator John McCain and his family, Governor Ducey will not be making any announcements about an appointment until after the Senator is laid to rest,” Ducey's senior adviser Daniel Ruiz II said in a statement to the Arizona Republic. "Now is a time for remembering and honoring a consequential life well lived." McCain died Saturday at 81 after a fight with brain cancer. His death came after his family announced Friday...

    Governor appoints a new senator Arizona is one of 36 states where a governor makes an appointment to fill a U.S. Senate vacancy, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Therefore, Gov. Ducey will appoint an interim senator to fill McCain’s seat. Because McCain was a Republican, state law requires Ducey to appoint a member of the same party — a move that’s critically important for the Trump administration, as the GOP currently holds a bare 51-49 Senate majority. The newly appointed senator would be in office until the next general election in November 2020. The interim senator would...

    Thousands of protestors took to the streets in hundreds of cities across the U.S. Saturday, participating in "Families Belong Together" rallies and demonstrations. What protestors are hoping to gain: The immediate reunification of families that have been separated, the end of family detentions, and, more broadly, the dissolution of Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy.

    On a rugged bluff overlooking the Ohio River, known locally as "Devil's Backbone," centuries of overgrowth obscures a secret of history... In 1799, early settlers found six skeletons clad in breastplates bearing a Welsh coat of arms. Indian legends told of "yellow-haired giants" who settled in Kentucky, southern Indiana, southern Ohio and Tennessee -- a region they called "the Dark and Forbidden Land." Archeologists debunk the legend. They say that evidence indicates that the natives of the region once conducted a vigorous trading network nearby and buried their dead on the bluff... Upstream about 14 miles from Louisville, Ky., the...

    White working class Americans have become "lazy" and might have to replaced in the workforce by "new Americans" emigrating from other countries, The Weekly Standard editor at large Bill Kristol said this week. Immigrants are the future of the United States, just like they were at the beginning of the 20th century, Kristol told author Charles Murray during a videotaped event. "Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white, working class, don't you want to get new Americans in?" Kristol said. The Daily Caller reported on the existence of the video, which...

    If President Trump’s replacement for ObamaCare does not pass, it is my opinion after my research, Americans will regret it. ObamaCare is imploding as we speak There are Americans who have paid for ObamaCare, but the deductibles have been so high they have never actually used it. Others have just paid the penalty, but do not have insurance to show for that money spent. Insurance companies are opting out every day. It is a mess that has damaged so many American lives, it is hard to put into words. President Trump had a meeting with many Americans from around the...

    Oh? Some trick if true, although it wouldn’t be the first time Trump has made a seemingly improbable declaration of himself as the winner only to turn out right. But if he actually pulled this off, I’ve got to know how: US President Donald Trump, after meeting with Republican lawmakers skeptical of the Obamacare replacement plan, announced Friday that he has succeeded in winning their support for the controversial healthcare overhaul.

    The text of Republican health care reform bill to replace Obamacare was released Monday night. Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump offered a full-throated endorsement of the legislation put forward by House Republican leadership. The bill is “out for review,” President Trump tweeted. Well, the CR review is in, and the bill is terrible. For the last six years, the primary complaints of Republicans against Obamacare were the unconstitutional individual mandate and the insurance regulations that are driving up the cost of premiums. Neither of those problems are addressed in the RINOcare bill. A Republican version of the individual mandate remains...

    The public wants lower out-of-pocket costs, according to the latest Kaiser Health poll. ObamaCare has pushed up deductibles for people who get coverage through their employer by at least 50 percent. The law forces all but the smallest employers to provide a benefits package far costlier than most pre-ACA coverage. It also hits employers with new taxes, and these employers are passing these costs onto workers, raising their out-of-pocket costs. In New York, 49 percent of manufacturers are increasing their workers’ deductibles because of ObamaCare, reports the New York Federal Reserve. GOP lawmakers aiming to “replace” ObamaCare must not repeat...

    Lickety-split. I don’t know if the repeal-and-delay talk was just a trial balloon, or if it was never really under serious consideration. But there was never much enthusiasm - from the conservative base or from anyone else - for the idea of repealing ObamaCare quickly but then taking an extended period of time to come up with a replacement. And apparently both Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have gotten the message.

    Former White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler told President Obama this week he should take her name out of consideration for the post of attorney general, White House officials confirmed Friday. “We can confirm the president asked Kathy to consider this, and she was among those the president had been looking at,” said a White House official who asked for anonymity in a written statement, referring to the search to replace retiring Attorney General Eric Holder. “Kathy took this step this week on her own volition—as she always has done, putting the president and the administration first.” The Associated Press first...

    The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?(Matthew 16:1-3)And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known,...

    Everyone is African: How Science Explodes the Myth of Race I think if we were honest enough to admit it, we are all bigoted in some way. Our gender or religion doesn’t really qualify us as superior to anyone else, but we tend to fall back on these identities and, consciously or not, assume they give us a reason to feel that we are not only in possession of a special truth, but that it grants us the privilege to feel better than others. When we examine the issue of race, however, the bigotry is inherent because racial groups are...

    Find opens debate about whether man's earliest ancestors came from Asia and were diurnal or nocturnal CHICAGO--A skull and jawbones recently found in China is the oldest well-preserved primate fossil ever discovered ? as well as the best evidence of the presence of early primates in Asia. But the fossil raises the tantalizing possibility that remote human ancestors may have originated in Asia and stirs up debate about the nature of early primates. In the words of Robert D. Martin, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at Chicago's Field Museum, "It was once thought that primates originated in North...

    According to Brooklyn Borough President, the spirit of Selma is about adding Muslim holidays to the school calendar. According to Obama, it’s about replacing black workers with illegal aliens through amnesty. Obama invoked the “spirit of Selma” to justify his executive amnesty policies Friday in an interview with Sirius XM’s Joe Madison. “The notion that some kid that was brought here when he was two or three years old might somehow be deported at the age of 20 or 25 even though they’ve grown up as American, that’s not who we are,” Obama said. “That’s not true to the spirit...

    Recent scientific findings date their arrival earlier than ever thought, sparking hot debate among archaeologists For much of its length, the slow-moving Aucilla River in northern Florida flows underground, tunneling through bedrock limestone. But here and there it surfaces, and preserved in those inky ponds lie secrets of the first Americans.For years adventurous divers had hunted fossils and artifacts in the sinkholes of the Aucilla about an hour east of Tallahassee. They found stone arrowheads and the bones of extinct mammals such as mammoth, mastodon and the American ice age horse.Then, in the 1980s, archaeologists from the Florida Museum of...
