Hungarian PM Orban undertakes a social experiment that might just save Western Civilization

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 10, 2018

“Who would have guessed that a constellation of formerly atheistic, Communist countries would become the vanguard of the family?”

(Samuel Hammond writing at National Review)

 

It isn’t just in Hungary either.  In Poland and especially in Russia the push is on to encourage marriage and then the all important follow-up—more babies!

Why? They want to produce their own replacements and stop the flood of third world migrant workers that globalist corporations say are needed to keep the economy humming.  Never mind that the migrants have no interest in maintaining Hungarian, Polish or Russian culture (even if they work and don’t depend on welfare payments).

orban and family

Hungarian PM Orban practicing what he preaches….

I guess you can tell, I love this guy—Viktor Orban—because he has no fear of telling the truth. 

And, this subject interests me because in the 1970’s I was steeped in this idea that no family should have more than two children in order to save the planet.  But, guess what, only white educated young people listened. 

And, in fact, no one I ever knew made any serious effort to tell it to those in the Middle East and Africa especially where Muslims were pushing their people to produce babies for Allah and to migrate.

Here is a detailed account at National Review of what, first Hungary is doing to boost its population, and what is happening in Russia and Poland to do the same.

It strikes me that a renewed focus on American family-building might be something Donald Trump should incorporate into his campaign message.

Surely you knew that the US birthrate is now below replacement levels.

Italy takes steps to reverse demographic decline of Italians by making it easier to have babies/large families!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 30, 2018

When I read Mark Steyn’s disheartening America Alone, ten years ago, like Steyn, I saw no hope for Europeans to halt the steep population decline of their people.  Italians, Germans, French and Spaniards, etc. just weren’t having enough children to replace themselves while migrant population numbers were skyrocketing.

For the first time since I started my ‘Invasion of Europe’ series I see hope for a reversal of the trend everyone thought could never be turned around.   Is it too little, too late, who knows, but thank God there are now political leaders willing to try!

Italy’s Salvini and Hungary’s Orban say NO to the idea that “New Europeans” are needed for Europe’s economy to survive. Thanks, but no thanks, we will produce our own children!

Minnesota growth in diversity outpacing US as a whole

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 22, 2018

Not a huge shock for most followers of Refugee Resettlement Watch, but good to see that the citizens of Minnesota are being given the hard facts so that they can decide what will be best for their families going forward.

 

SAMSUNG

Somalis in Minneapolis

 

From Twin Cities Pioneer Press:

Minnesota continues to grow more diverse, according to population estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday.

The latest data showed that populations of people of color have increased faster in Minnesota than the rest of the nation since 2010. Meanwhile, the state’s white population growth remained relatively stagnant.

 

Minnesota diversity graph

 

The change can be seen in the ethnic communities emerging around St. Paul; in the expansion of organizations such as the Karen Organization of Minnesota and the Hmong American Partnership; and in St. Paul Public Schools, where in 2010 district families spoke 77 different languages at home — that stood at 128 languages in 2017.

Janna Johnson, an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs who studies minority populations, said the latest numbers likely don’t tell the entire story. Minority populations tend to be undercounted, meaning Minnesota’s is likely even larger, she said. [Why? Because minorities don’t answer census questions or simply hide.—-ed]

No need to learn English, just go to Minnesota and keep speaking Somali!

Mohamad SheikOmer, who started the Somali-Oromo Peace Task Force in St. Paul, has noticed the uptick in diversity since he moved to Minnesota. SheikOmer, who has a wife and seven children, moved from Ethiopia to Maryland in April 2014, then St. Paul three months later.

He relocated his family to Minnesota because there are more opportunities, noting for example it’s much easier to find people who speak Somali in St. Paul than in Maryland.

“We can help each other at work, how to get benefits, how to get schooling,” SheikOmer said.

More here.

“Benefits” is, of course, a big reason refugees are migrating to Minnesota and a good reason Minnesota was chosen as a prime resettlement site more than thirty years ago by the US State Department and its contractors (Catholic Charities, Lutheran Immigration, and World Relief) for Somali resettlement.

Just a few days ago I told readers how many Somalis have been resettled in the US under the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program since the early 1980’s, here.

Gallup (again): 147 million migrants would come to US right now (if they could)!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 25, 2017

Screenshot (779)

This is a number to remember!

When I told you about Gallup’s recent survey of countries that are the least and most accepting of migrants yesterday, I noticed this survey I missed in June.

The present US population is about 325 million. 

So you can see that 147 million wannabe migrants is huge.

The next time you debate with a NO Borders activist ask them if they would draw the line at some number or whether they are supportive of 147 million people arriving here as soon as they could buy a plane ticket.

Ask them what that would do to jobs, housing, schools, food security, medical care, open space/parks, etc.

Gallup’s ‘Coming to America’ here.

Nearly 150 million people — or 4% of the world’s adult population — would move to the U.S. if they could. That figure is larger than the next four most popular destinations combined. If everyone who wanted to move to the U.S. had their way, the country’s total population would increase by almost 50%.

So they want to move to a racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, gun-loving, Trump-leading country?   Hmmmm!

Here are the top ten most desirable destinations. Notice that Sweden and other Scandinavian socialist countries do not make the top ten.

Gallup: who in the world ‘welcomes’ refugees?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2017

Much to my surprise, five African countries are in the top ten “accepting of migrants” countries in the world.

africa-political

Five African countries are in the top ten most accepting of migrants.

So why is the US responsible for taking tens of thousands of so-called refugees from Africa every year? Can’t they stay in welcoming parts of the continent?

Here is the fascinating report from Gallup:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Many countries on the front lines of the recent migrant crisis in Europe are among the least-accepting countries in the world for migrants, according to Gallup’s new Migrant Acceptance Index. Nine of the 10 countries that score a 2.39 or lower (out of a possible 9.0) on the index are former Soviet bloc countries — with most located along the Balkan route that once channeled asylum seekers from Greece to Germany. Israel, which has dealt with its own influx of asylum seekers from Africa in the past decade, is the only non-European country with scores this low.

There is a lot of really good stuff in here.

Notice that the US is number 18 on the list for welcoming migrants putting us above Germany and all of Europe on Gallup’s “Migrant Acceptance Index.”

Here (below) are the top ten “least” and “most” accepting.

The full list is below in Gallup’s news story.  While the US is 18th (most accepting). European countries that have been overrun are increasingly less accepting–Germany is 23rd, the UK is 38, Italy 43, France 46, Belgium and Greece below that.

I have to laugh because both Iceland and New Zealand take only tiny numbers of refugees so of course they haven’t experienced the ‘joy’ that some countries, especially in most of Europe, have had yet.

On the “least”  accepting side, numbers 12 and 13 are Pakistan and Afghanistan. You will see that the Middle East generally is the “least” accepting region of the world and the Muslim parts of North Africa are near the bottom too (when Gallup lists by region).

Go here for more, I’m sure you will find some juicy bits of information (for use now or to save for later).

Media silent on the biggest issue of our time

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 15, 2017

Yesterday a reader, Kafir, directed me to this month-old Mark Steyn video. I urge all of you to take twenty-four minutes and watch it.

It is demographics stupid!

If the video doesn’t play, you can read about it and see the video, here. As I write this it is at 59,396 views.  Help it go higher!

US Census: Immigrant population boom happening now

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 5, 2015

This is the headline from the UK Daily Mail yesterday.  You may have already seen it:

White US children will be minorities by 2020 after immigrant ‘baby boom’, Census reveals

 

In the infographic linked below, the author of Diversity Explosion tells of all the warm and wonderful things that will come to America as diversity expands and blossoms—one of those wonderful new frontiers will happen with governance as the immigrants, we are told, will mostly register as Democratic voters!

 

Here are the first few paragraphs:

White children will be outnumbered by minority kids in the United States in just five years, new Census Bureau projections reveal.

This is the result of an ongoing trend of declining birth among white Americans and a baby boom among immigrant groups, as well as a surge in immigration.

By the year 2020, 50.2 percent of all children in the US are expected to be non-white, according to the Census. By 2044, whites will be outnumbered by minorities.

The Census study, released this week, predicts that by year 2060, nearly 20 percent of the population will be foreign born – thanks to an influx of 64million new immigrants.

The “seedlings” are sprouting at a rapid rate!  We are being replaced and Obama is one step ahead of us.

Read it all and see the graphs.  Be sure to click on the cute little infographic by Brookings where we are told in gleeful tones that the immigrants will vote Democratic (so as to get their government goodies?)!  See the book, here.

US Census considering special category for Muslim ‘race’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 3, 2015

This is a story that appears at the DC Clothesline, but was first published by Pamela Geller (hat tip:  Joanne) while I was away.

Hassan Jabar of Access who sits on a Census advisory board received a $2.5 million grant for each of the next five years from the State of Michigan for youth education. http://downriversundaytimes.com/2014/09/18/access-announces-grant-award-of-12-8-million/

Here is how it begins:

The US under Obama is considering adding a new race in the census. The move would give this group, previously classified as white, much greater political clout and access to public funding.

More political power and taxpayer dollars — it’s madness.

Then here is the news account that follows (from AP):

DETROIT (AP) – The federal government is considering allowing those of Middle Eastern and North African descent to identify as such on the next 10-year census, which could give Arab-Americans and other affected groups greater political clout and access to public funding, among other things.

The U.S. Census Bureau will test the new Middle East-North Africa (MENA) classification for possible inclusion on the 2020 census if it gets enough positive feedback about the proposed change by Sunday, when the public comment period ends.

Arab-Americans, who make up the majority of those who would be covered by the MENA classification, have previously been classified by default as white on the census, which helps determine congressional district boundaries and how billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated, among other things.

Those pushing for the MENA classification say it would more fully and accurately count them, thus increasing their visibility and influence among policymakers.

“We know the challenges,” says Hassan Jaber, who runs a Detroit-area social services group and serves on a census advisory board formed to evaluate Americans’ changing racial and ethnic identities. “It really does take rethinking … who we are as a population and what our needs are, (but) there are specific needs for Arab-Americans that are not being recognized and not being met.”  [So what special treatment do Arabs need and why?—ed]

[….]

A proposed Middle Eastern or North African category on the 2020 Census is expected to be tested nationally later this year and the bureau is currently inviting comments on the collection of this and other information.

Continue reading here.

I’m not sure I agree that this is madness.  It may very well have ramifications we would be unhappy with, but we must find out how many Muslims are in the US right now.  Pew Research says we have 2.75 million while CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) says 7 million.    Pew’s number puts us at less than 1% of the US population.  We know that France, for instance, is now about 7% (some estimates are higher) and they are in deep demographic trouble.

I’ve been estimating that at 3% the Muslim population reaches a tipping point and is emboldened and begins making demands via calls for certain shariah compliance. Others in the know, say 2% is that point.

It is imperative that we know how much time we have left.  In truth though, by the time they begin this 2020 census it may be too late anyway.

It is all about the Hijra—the Muslim migration to America—and the quiet jihad!

Religious immigrants changing Canada’s demographics

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 13, 2013

In the last 40 years Christian immigration to Canada has dropped from 78% to 47.5%.

Baitul Islam Mosque, Maple, Ontario, Canada

I haven’t had much time of late for reports on our “welcoming” Canadian neighbors or the Australian asylum seeker on-going crisis (there they are taking failed asylum seekers off public welfare while “humanitarians” howl), so here, in order to begin catching up, is a story about Canada’s changing demographics.   I think that the reporter, Benjamin Shingler, is trying too hard to make a point that immigrants, passionate about their religion, will benefit Canada.   I wouldn’t go that far when it comes to the growing Muslim population.

From Canadian Press/AP:

While the Christian faith continues to dominate Canada’s immigrant profile, its proportion has been steadily fading. Where more than 78 per cent of immigrants to Canada prior to 1971 identified themselves as Christians, that proportion has dropped to 47.5 per cent among those who arrived over the past five years, the survey found.

Meanwhile, the Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist faiths have been growing, claiming 33 per cent of those immigrants who arrived between 2001 and 2011. Among those who arrived before 1971, that share was just 2.9 per cent. All told, the four religions accounted for some 2.4 million people in Canada in 2011, about 7.2 per cent, compared with 4.9 per cent a decade earlier.

And then there’s the non-believers: nearly one-quarter of the Canadian population, some 7.8 million people, claimed no religious affiliation in 2011, up from 16.5 per cent in 2001.

The arrival of religious immigrants has worked to offset the country’s growing secular population, said Morton Weinfeld, a sociology professor at McGill University in Montreal.

“To a certain extent, this adds a level of traditionalism to Canadian society,” Weinfeld said. “There is probably a higher level of commitment (among immigrants) to their respective faiths.”  [How does adding Muslims, Sikhs etc. add to “traditionalism” in Canada?—ed]

Unlike its predecessor, the cancelled mandatory long-form census, the results of the 2011 survey come with a caveat: because the NHS was voluntary, Statistics Canada warns that its findings carry a greater risk of “non-response error.”  [The census will become useless as it becomes voluntary.—ed]

For many immigrant groups, religion plays a vital role as new arrivals to Canada contend with the often confounding challenges and difficulties that come with establishing a new home in a completely different country, he added.

“Churches or mosques or even some synagogues help in the adjustment and integration process.”

The Hijra continues unabated (read about it)!
