COVID Lockdowns Fail Again

This is a continuing demographics disaster for this country.

Published

Many mediots assumed that months of lockdowns in 2020 would give us a spike in new babies this year. Well, no such luck. As it happens, the birth rate declined once again last year.

Even as the birth rate of our citizenry has fallen below replacement rates, some were happy when predictions for a baby boom were bandied about during the beginning phases of the various lockdowns that popped up all across the nation. But now we have found that the birth rate has fallen to a low not seen since 1979 as the birth numbers fell 4.4 percent over 2019.

Sadly, it is all just in keeping with the falling numbers we seen for decades.

“Birthrates fell among all ranges of women, in the childbearing 15 to 44 age group,” Townhall wrote. “Most concerning were birth rates among Millennial women (born between 1981 and 1996) who account for the majority of women making babies; birth rates for 30-somethings fell by between 2 and 4 percent, while those for 20-somethings decreased by between 4 and 6 percent.”

Townhall went on to note that those at prime baby-making age have been facing particularly difficult situations:

Why aren’t Millennials having babies? Experts suggest that Millennials are scarred. Starting careers during the Great Recession and saddled with student loan debt, this generation suffered significantly high unemployment rates and lost income. From 2007 through 2017, the average Millennial missed out on13 percent of total earnings ($25,000). Millennials had just begun to recover when the pandemic hit. Millions of them were driven out of work, especially since job losses hit the dining and leisure industries hardest, which tend to employ younger workers.

The numbers look bad, per CNBC:

Overall, the number of births declined 3% for Hispanic women and 4% for white and Black women from 2019 to 2020.

Teen birth rates dropped considerably with births to 15- to-17-year-olds falling by 6% and to 18- to-19-year-olds falling by 7%, both hitting record lows.

Birth rates among women ages 20 to 24 and 25 to 29 dipped by 6% and 4%, respectively, both to record lows. Birth rates fell by 4% and 2% respectively among women ages 30 to 34 and 35 to 39, but did not reach record lows, according to CDC data.

Birth rates for women ages 40 to 44 fell by 2% from 2019, but birth rates for women 45 and up remained unchanged. according to the CDC.

This is a continuing demographics disaster for this country.

But, once again we see that the lockdowns failed to do what “experts” said they would do.

NYC Restauranteurs Blast De Blasio’s Vax Mandates: ‘We’re Being Assaulted’

The trouble continues for Big Apple eateries.

Published

Just days ago, a wild and unruly bit of viral video made headlines, and reignited a national debate about the possibility of vaccine mandates throughout our great nation.

So far, the only real federal vaccine mandate has come in the form of an order from the Biden administration, declaring that all federal employees would be required to receive an inoculation against COVID-19, as well as employees of any private company with more than 100 workers.

But there are plenty of local and private ordinances that do require vaccination, including a controversial proclamation in New York City that requires vaccines for all restaurant customers.  The aforementioned viral video depicted a group of Texan tourists physically assaulting a restaurant hostess that asked for their proof of vaccination in order to dine in their establishment.

This shocking incident has New York City’s restauranteurs crying foul.

“It’s gonna hurt my business for me to lose customers, to lose relationships with customers. We’re a neighborhood restaurant,” restaurant owner Massimo Felici said, according to NY1. According to the outlet, Felici said the mandate, barring unvaccinated people from dining indoors, has had a negative impact on his business.

“They’re making us police this. We are getting the ripple effect. We’re getting assaulted for it, accused for it whatever you wanna call it. That’s it. Period. It shouldn’t be us,” he added, noting the rules remain unclear to most, as unvaccinated individuals can still dine outdoors.

“You’d be surprised how many people are confused about what’s allowed and what’s not allowed. If you read that, it makes it sound like you cannot come into my restaurant for dinner if you do not have the vaccination,” he said of the city’s signs.

Other establishment owners lamented the reality of the mandates being bad for business, especially as restaurants continue to struggle to reach pre-pandemic prosperity.

Neighbor Recalls Bizarre Camper Movements at Laundrie Residence

This changes EVERYTHING.

Published

on

Brian Laundrie is without a doubt the most sought-after man in America today, and with good reason.

Laundrie returned home to Florida from a cross-country road trip on September 1st, driving a van belonging to his travel partner and fiancée Gabby Petito.  Petito, however, was not with Brian upon his return.

The disturbing developments continued, as Laundrie quickly lawyered up and refused to cooperate with police who were now investigating Petito’s disappearance during their road trip.

Just over a week ago, Brian went missing.  Just days after that, Petito’s body was found in Bridger-Teton National Forest with a coroner suggesting that her cause of death was homicide.

The search for Brian Laundrie has largely been contained to the vast Carlton Reserve in Central Florida, where the young outdoorsman was said to have gone hiking before he vanished.

But neighbors are now revealing new details that could make Brian even more difficult to locate. 

A couple who live across the street from Brian Laundrie and his family told Fox News on Wednesday that they saw the 23-year-old and his parents leave their home in a truck with an attached camper about a week after Laundrie returned home alone from a cross-country road trip with his fiancée, Gabby Petito.

Authorities are still searching for Laundrie, who has been missing since last Tuesday and is a person of interest in Petito’s death, which has been ruled a homicide.

Charlene and William Guthrie, who moved to North Port, Florida, this summer, said they told authorities they’d seen Christopher and Roberta Laundrie attach what appeared to be a new camper to their truck and drive off for what the Guthries assumed was a weekend camping trip with their son.

“I saw them doing some work. And then when they prepared for their trip, I saw them loading the camper,” William Guthrie told Fox.

Laundrie is considered to be a skilled outdoorsman who may be able to remain “off the grid” for a considerable length of time, which has made the entire situation all the more worrisome for those seeking justice for Gabby Petito.
