The coronavirus pandemic has significantly decreased new births in the United States in the year 2020, setting the country back demographically in an era where annual births are already at record lows.
The Wall Street Journal cited research conducted by the Brookings Institute which projected the United States would have more than 500,000 less births in 2020 than it did in 2019.
“The think tank has forecast between 300,000 to 500,000 fewer births in the U.S. next year, compared with a drop of 44,172 last year. Its analysis, partly based on what happened following the 2007-2009 recession, is that weaker job prospects equate to fewer births. “Women will have many fewer babies in the short term, and for some of them, a lower total number of children over their lifetimes,” reported the WSJ.
Births in the United States had already reached record lows in 2019, and stand to be much lower this year because of the virus. The Brookings Institute is basing their projections on the aftermath of the 2007-08 Great Recession, and points to damaged economic prospects for women from the virus as a critical factor in dissuading families from having children.
Liberals generally oppose the notion of pro-family natalist policies to increase the U.S. birth rate. Potential solutions could include funding fertility treatment for those seeking to conceive, paid family leave, tax credits for the parents of children and subsidized childcare.
It’s likely the drop in birthrates will reverberate in years to come, potentially creating demographic problems for America, which already isn’t producing enough new babies to create a sufficient societal, labor and tax base in future decades.
Journalist Andy Ngo is Forced to Leave the U.S. After Credible Death Threats From ANTIFA
Ngo has fled the country.
Journalist Andy Ngo has been forced to leave the United States after enduring credible death threats from ANTIFA domestic terrorists over the course of many months.
Ngo made the shocking announcement that he has relocated to London during a recent appearance on Sky News. He explained how ANTIFA’s reign of terror forced him to leave his home of Portland, Ore. and then the country to protect his safety.
“For a number of months now there’s just been increasing threats of violence against me, promises by Antifa extremists to kill me,” Ngo said about his ordeal.
The full Sky News interview can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on how ANTIFA targeted Ngo in the past with violence in an attempt to intimidate him and prevent him from telling the truth about the domestic terror organization:
A Twitter post from Friday shows that the attack on reporter Andy Ngo, who was savagely beaten by an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon, was premeditated.
“I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally,” he said on Twitter. “They’re promising ‘physical confrontation’ & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence.”
He posted several screenshots from a Facebook event – which of course portrayed the violent mob as the victims of violence themselves – and screenshots from a local Antifa website promoting the event.
“Oregon City Proud Boy [redacted] targets the Portland DSA in a Facebook thread encouraging other members of the hate group to participate in the June 29 assault on Portland. Local far-right Islamophobic journalist Andy Ngo – who participated in the Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys attack on Cedar Riot on May 1, 2019, and who was the first to publicly promote the June 29 Proud Boys event – also targets the DSA while dismissing as hoaxes a series of assaults against the Portland LGBTQ community, some of which were gloated about by far-right activists.”
Another part of the post noted that the group was planning on “physical confrontation,” but said that there are “plenty of other ways to help” if one is unable to partake in the violence.
Ngo’s fears were confirmed when he was attacked Saturday.
Ngo’s experiences show that ANTIFA is not an idea, but a dangerous group of terrorist thugs at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution. By standing strong and continuing reporting the truth about ANTIFA, Ngo is refusing to let the terrorists win.
