The latest statistics measuring the American birth rate and total births have been released, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s report paint a dark demographic picture.
The 3.788 million births that took place in 2018 were the lowest that had occurred in a single year since 1986. The birth rate, or average number of children born per woman, continued to decline as well, following a demographic pattern that has been carrying on for many years.
The birth rate declined by 2% to 1.7. A national birth rate of less than 2.0 creates a situation where a population isn’t having enough children to replace itself.
Some demographers and researchers had forecast a rise in the American birthrate as elements of the economy improved over the past few years. However, it seems the economic system of the United States isn’t enabling or encouraging more young Americans to become parents, even though it’s nominally improving.
Demographers ascribe multiple factors to the lowered birth rate among the American population. More women are postponing having children in order to pursue a career or higher education, and economic insecurity is leaving many Americans who would otherwise become parents to opt out, at last temporarily.
Permissive abortion laws also lead a considerable percentage of pregnancies in the United States to end in termination.
A demographic winter will create consequences for all generations of Americans as time progresses. It will become more difficult for the United States to fund healthcare and social security programs as the Boomer generation progresses into retirement age, and other American adults will face the uncertain prospect of a country with less people than it had when they came into it-unless immigration is enough of a demographic factor to grow the population of the United States in its own right, which creates its own set of societal dysfunction and problems.
President Trump Announces New 1776 Commission to Promote Patriotic Education in Nation’s Schools
An alternative to leftist brainwashing.
President Donald Trump announced the formation of a new ‘1776 Commission’ during a speech at the National Archives Museum on Thursday, creating a new commission that will work to instill principles of patriotic and pro-American education in defiance to left-wing school and university systems.
The President spoke of the need for the new commission in light of the vision championed by the cultural left, citing the New York Times’ 1619 Project and ‘critical race theory’ anti-white teachings pervasive throughout Fortune 500 companies and federal government agencies. (The President issued an executive order banning critical race theory brainwashing at the beginning of the month.)
The 1776 Commission will work to promote patriotic education and defend American heritage and character. It’s likely the organization will create curriculum that celebrates the American legacy, as leftists in public school and university systems work relentlessly to attack it.
“Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said of the Commission’s goals. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.”
“These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment media, and even large corporations,” Trump said. “Whether it is the mob in the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”
“We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed,” the president continued.
The President understands that conservatives and patriots must fight for cultural power as they do for political power, an pressing priority for conservatives who desire to fight back against the cultural left’s domination of the educational world.
