Countries by birth rate in 2008

I read last week that the Russian government is encouraging their people to have more sex. President Vlad the Impaler was even soliciting the assistance of the pop singing group Boyz to Men to encourage copulation among the masses. Of course, the story was happily reported by the main stream media, who love to report on anything to do with sex. But, there was no explanation for the motives behind the “push” from the Russians.

For that, one must do some research about birth rates and Soviet communist history. As it turns out, the Russians, like most modern nations are experiencing sub-replacement fertility rates. Birth rates are below the replacement rate. This should be good news to liberal minded Malthusians. Isn’t Mother Earth straining under the pressure of too many humans?

Actually, this is bad news for most modern societies, especially socialist welfare states. For an in depth explanation of the hazards of our current culture of death, I refer you to America Alone by Mark Steyn. As it turns out, welfare societies like Russia, most of Europe and the U.S. are top heavy with entitled retirees, disabled and “disadvantaged” folks. More young workers are needed to fund these programs, as well as to capitalize on new technologies.

Central banks around the world have printed money to escape the global financial crisis, and as Bloomberg reports, IMF data shows Russia added 570 metric tons in the past decade. Putin‘s fears that “the U.S. is endangering the global economy by abusing its dollar monopoly,” are clearly being taken seriously as the world’s largest oil producer turns black gold into hard assets. A lawmaker in Putin’s party noted, “the more gold a country has, the more sovereignty it will have if there’s a cataclysm with the dollar, the euro, the pound or any other reserve currency.”

Putin’s gold strategy fits in with his resource nationalism, statist agenda, as Bloomberg notes when Russia defaulted in 1998 it took 28 barrels of oil to buy one ounce of gold, was 11.5 barrels when Putin came to power and when in 2005 it had fallen to 6.5 barrels (less than half what it is now), he went all in, telling the central bank to buy.

Mexican Mafia gang symbol, known as "La e...

For the past 22 years, I, along with a few others, have been sounding the alarm: The Mexican Mafia and their affiliated gangs have declared an all-out war on black Americans!

In Compton, Calif., a mother and her three children were recently intimidated by a group of Hispanic gang members. The intimidation reached a boiling point when four Hispanic men in a black SUV pulled up and began harassing a male family friend, calling him a “nigger” and saying black people were barred from the neighborhood. According to reports, they jumped out, drew a gun on the family friend and beat him with metal pipes. It was just the beginning of what detectives said was a campaign to force the black family to leave.

According to the Los Angeles Times, similar attacks have taken place in Harbor Gateway, Highland Park, Pacoima, San Bernardino, Canoga Park and Wilmington, among other places over the last decade.

Sheriff’s detectives arrested two alleged members of the Compton Varrio 155 gang. “This family has no gang ties whatsoever,” Sheriff Department Lt. Richard Westin said. “They are complete innocent victims here.”

Compton, with a population of about 97,000, was predominantly black for many years. It is now 65 percent Latino and 33 percent black. As the black population ages, Hispanics are moving into black neighborhoods and in some cases attacking them and driving them out.

Federal authorities have alleged in several indictments over the last decade that the Mexican Mafia prison gang has ordered street gangs under its control to attack blacks. Leaders of the Azusa 13 gang were recently sentenced to lengthy prison terms for leading a policy of attacking black residents and expelling them from the town.

English: Wall Street sign on Wall Street

Why are corporate insiders dumping huge numbers of shares in their own companies right now? Why are some very large investors suddenly making gigantic bets that the stock market will crash at some point in the next 60 days? Do Wall Street insiders expect something really BIG to happen very soon? Do they know something that we do not know? What you are about to read below is startling. Every time that the market has fallen in recent years, insiders have been able to get out ahead of time. David Coleman of the Vickers Weekly Insider report recently noted that Wall Street insiders have shown “a remarkable ability of late to identify both market peaks and troughs”. That is why it is so alarming that corporate insiders are selling nine times as many shares as they are buying right now. In addition, some extraordinarily large bets have just been made that will only pay off if the financial markets in the U.S. crash by the end of April. So what does all of this mean? Well, it could mean absolutely nothing or it could mean that there are people out there that actually have insider knowledge that a market crash is coming. Evaluate the evidence below and decide for yourself…For some reason, corporate insiders have chosen this moment to unload huge amounts of stock. According to a CNN article, corporate insiders are now selling nine times more of their own shares than they are buying…

Imagine the United States as one big jumbo jet on a lengthy journey to what our travel brochures described as the land of “milk and honey.” We are all passengers aboard this marvelous airbus of state-of-the art comfort along with a litany of well-trained pilots, crew members and support personnel, each taking their respective shifts on this multi-generational journey. The flight is complete with in-flight movies, food service, all of the latest technology, along with a flight staff seemingly dedicated to our comfort.As Americans, we boarded this aircraft long ago as we were promised a destination to the promised land of peace and prosperity by the flight planners and smiling and most accommodating crew. We were impressed by the amenities of the aircraft, complete with logos of the stars and stripes on the plane’s exterior and patriotic songs playing in a loop in the boarding area. Oh how proud we were!As passengers excited and enthusiastic about our future, we paid little or no attention to the backgrounds, bona-fides or intentions of the pilots or crew. Seeing them clothed in their dress flight uniforms, standing aboard the aircraft to warmly greet us as the patriotic music faded quietly behind us, they instilled confidence in our flight experience.We boarded, settled in and took off, leaving the airport in “every town,” U.S.A. behind us as a memory of what once was. Upon reaching cruising altitude, drinks were served, the in-flight movie began, and passengers removed their various vices and devices from their carry-on bags to pass the time during this long flight.
