Chinese mothers gave birth to 14.65 million children last year, a birth rate of 10.48 babies per 1,000 people, the lowest level since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. Experts worry if the population shrinks, there will not be enough workers to support its aging population. China’s “one-child policy” limited couples to having only a single child from 1979 to 2016, and, especially in rural areas, sex-selective abortion, forced abortion and female infanticide skewed the sex ratio. There are now 30 million bachelors who are unlikely to marry and have families. A survey conducted in 2017 found that more than 50% of families have no intention of having a second child, with many saying they believed it was too expensive. Another poll from several years ago claims that 33% of women had their pay cut after giving birth and 36% were demoted. Japan and South Korea are also suffering from low birth rates and aging populations.
China’s birthrate in 2019 hit its lowest level since the founding of the People’s Republic in 1949, according to official statistics released by Beijing Friday.

China’s demographic issues could pose serious issues for the world’s second-largest economy when the current working-age population reaches retirement. Experts worry if the trend continues, or the population begins shrinking, China may get old before it gets rich.
Demographers have long pointed to China’s “one-child policy” as the culprit of the country’s current population problems. For decades, couples in China were limited to only having a single child, unless they were willing to break the law or had the money to work around the system.
Experts say the policy had dire effects on age demographics and sex ratio, as many poor, rural families who prized boys due to traditional cultural values went to extreme measures to ensure their child’s sex.
More than 250 million Chinese were over 60 years old last year, the statistics released Friday reveal. They make up more than 18% of the population.
The figure is forecast to rise to a third of the population by 2050 — or 480 million people. A study published by a leading state-sponsored Chinese think tank last year found that the country will face an “unstoppable” population decline over the coming decades, with fewer and fewer workers struggling to support an increasingly aging society.
The ruling Communist Party has attempted to combat demographic issues by encouraging families to have more babies, but many middle class families are wary to do so because of financial considerations.

A powerful teachers union lobbied the CDC to change the school-reopening guidance that was released in February. Teachers’ unions across the United States rallied to keep schools closed during the pandemic, ignoring a body of scientific evidence that said it’s safe to teach students face-to-face.
This is a classic example of how a mainstream news promotes a false narrative about right-wing terrorism.

A woman ranted at the officer, made racial slurs against him, and accused him of trying to murder her and her son. The officer did not respond to her provocations and carried out his duties with patience.

Most reports coming from India follow the story line that the virus is is killing alarming numbers, that hospitals are overwhelmed, but that the situation will get better when everyone is vaccinated. This is the same scenario popularized in Europe and the US. The mortality death rate is similar to the flu.
Christian pastor John Sherwood was arrested by police after a member of the public reported him for the “homophobic” comment of saying, while preaching, that marriage is between a man and a woman.

Government councils in the UK are hiring COVID Marshals to patrol streets from July until the end of 2023, despite the fact that all lockdown restrictions are supposed to end in June. In all likelihood, fear-mongering over a “third wave” of the virus will be used to reintroduce lockdown at the beginning of Autumn.
The document defines SAE (Secondary Adverse Event) as an adverse event in someone who was exposed to someone who received the mRNA shot.

The law requires physicians to perform an ultrasound test for a fetal heartbeat on any woman seeking an abortion and it bars abortion if a heartbeat is detected. If lawsuits are filed to challenge the bill, as expected, the law will not go into effect pending the outcome.
China’s communist government is implementing a “social credit” scorecard in order to control more than a billion people. This is accomplished by surveillance using facial recognition, body scanning, and tracking. Smartphone apps monitor daily behavior. Anyone who is critical of the government will be classified as discredited. This is the goal of all collectivist systems.
