  1. It's the truth... Populations change... Majorities become minorities...And vice versa... The U.S. Census Bureau’s release of race and age statistics for 2017 points to two noteworthy milestones about the nation’s increasingly aging white and growing diverse population. First, for the first time since the Census Bureau has released these annual statistics, they show an absolute decline in the nation’s white non-Hispanic population—accelerating a phenomenon that was not projected to occur until the next decade. William H. Frey Senior Fellow - Metropolitan Policy Program Second, the new numbers show that for the first time there are more children who are minorities than who are white, at every age from zero to nine. This means we are on the cusp of seeing the first minority white generation, born in 2007 and later, which perhaps we can dub Generation “Z-Plus.” Together these new data suggest that a signature feature of U.S. demographic change in the 21st century is the aging and decline of the white population, along with population growth among young minorities to counterbalance the trend. White population decline America’s white population has been increasing since the first census was taken in 1790. Table 1 shows the change in the non-Hispanic white population using data from the censuses of 1970 to 2010, and annual population estimates for 2011 to 2017, based on the recent release. These new numbers show, for the first time, an absolute decline in the nation’s white population of more than 9,000 whites between 2015 and 2016 and more than 31,000 whites between 2016 and 2017. (These new estimates revised earlier census estimates, which showed white gains between 2015 and 2016.) Although these annual white declines are extremely modest (of -0.005 and -0.016 percent in 2015-16 and 2016-17, respectively), they are an early harbinger of the long-term trend that the Census Bureau projected previously this year. Those projections showed the white population declining after 2023. This is indicative of a general aging of the white population, which means proportionately fewer white women in their childbearing years, and an excess of deaths over births (a natural decrease). The recent downsizing of the white population could reflect post-recession-related fertility declines in the white population, leading to an inflation of white natural decrease to its highest levels of the last six years. The past year also showed a downturn in white immigration. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-avenue/2018/06/21/us-white-population-declines-and-generation-z-plus-is-minority-white-census-shows/?gclid=CjwKCAiAp5nyBRABEiwApTwjXuF9tJ-ESjvYWiGoUoQ3qlWYO9vbppXbx7OHzMu4Ifw0AZtdeDesiBoCvSUQAvD_BwE B/A
  2. It is interesting how people are against equality and diversity. And those people are usually white. Here's the funny thing. In the not too distant future white people are going to be the minority... Think about that for a minute. The time is coming quickly, where white people are going to be crying for equality and diversity... Once again, I'm happy to say I'm old and won't have to live in the future... That old cliche comes to mind.... "Payback's a *****" B/A
  3. WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said Thursday he would have no qualms voting for a *** presidential candidate – even though he's unlikely to support the *** Democrat running to take his job this year, Pete Buttigieg. "It doesn’t seem to be hurting Pete Buttigieg," Trump told Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera during a radio interview in response to a question about whether U.S. voters would support a *** candidate for president. "I think there would be some that wouldn’t – and I wouldn’t be among that group to be honest with you," Trump said. Senate action: Senate poised to pass bill curbing Trump's war powers with Iran Trump v. Kelly: Ex-Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly defends Alexander Vindman Trump touched on a wide range of topics during the roughly 45-minute interview, including the 2020 election. He slammed former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is facing criticism for embracing a "stop-and-frisk" policies that disproportionately affected the city's black residents. Trump has often defended law enforcement policies criticized by others as overly aggressive. The president's remarks on Buttigieg came days after conservative radio host Limbaugh told his audience that the country is "still not ready to elect a *** guy kissing his husband on the debate stage president." Trump has not previously discussed Buttigieg's sexual orientation, though he has often joked about his difficult-to-pronounce name. Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, placed first in the Iowa caucuses and came in second in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday. A viral video Iowa that posted shortly after Iowa showed a woman who had turned in her caucus card for Buttigieg contending that she had no idea he is *** and asking for her card to be returned. "What I want her to know is that I’m running to be her president too," Buttigieg said last week on ABC's The View. This article originally appeared on USA TODAY: Trump could support a *** president, but probably not Buttigieg So much for being born again!!! LOL B/A
  4. I agree Indy... These people want it both ways... Look at Susan Collins... She voted to acquit even though she stated what he did was wrong. That was to appease her party. Then the reaction of her constituents is she will be voted out, so now show votes against Trump trying to save her herself from her voters... These people are all so corrupt. B/A
  5. He couldn't testify under oath... That seems pretty obvious... I ask you which do you believe his denial or his admittance? He is talking out of both sides of his mouth and one has to be a lie. JMHO B/A
  6. And now we know why he wouldn't testify under oath.... Trump contradicts his own denial and admits he sent Giuliani to Ukraine to dig dirt on political opponents Donald Trump has admitted sending Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine to dig dirt on a political rival, openly contradicting his own denials on the subject during the impeachment inquiry, just days after being acquitted of all alleged crimes. Mr Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, is at the centre of a web of shadowy efforts in Ukraine to persuade officials to investigate the Bidens, questions around which were key to the abuse of power charge on which Mr Trump was impeached by the House. Mr Trump previously insisted he “didn’t direct” Mr Giuliani to do “anything” in Ukraine, suggesting the attorney was likely there on behalf of “other clients”. But less than a week after his acquittal the president gave a very different response when asked in a podcast interview: “Was it strange to send Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine, your personal lawyer? Are you sorry you did that?” “Not at all,” Mr Trump replied, in a brazen U-turn. “Rudy was a great crime fighter, you know that, maybe better than anybody. And Rudy is totally on his game.” Speaking to Geraldo Rivera, Mr Trump then claimed he “used” Mr Giuliani in Ukraine, rather than more official channels such as the FBI because “they spied on my campaign” in 2016, also detailing his mistrust of former FBI director James Comey. “So when you tell me, why did I use Rudy – and one of the things about Rudy – number one, he was one of the very best prosecutors, and the best mayor,” Mr Trump said. “But also, other presidents had them … they all had lawyers … and they do things for them. It’s really circumventing – but very legally – and maybe getting things done faster.” The president appears to have been emboldened by his acquittal in the Senate, after a trial that saw his Republican allies increasingly move away from denying he had done anything wrong to merely playing down the severity of his actions in outsourcing attacks on his political rivals to foreign nations. He has embarked on a campaign of vengeance against those who he views as having wronged him during the impeachment proceedings, and – in a move reminiscent of dealings with Ukraine – appears to have openly boasted of offering New York governor Andrew Cuomo a deal on a state immigration law in return for dropping investigations into his finances and tax returns. His new admission regarding Mr Giuliani aligns more closely with what he said during his infamous call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, which sparked the impeachment proceedings. Transcripts, released by Mr Trump, showed him telling Mr Zelensky he would like him to speak with Mr Giuliani, while suggesting that he investigate Hunter Biden. “I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General,” Mr Trump said. “Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great.” Now he has admitted sending Mr Giuliani to Ukraine, it remains to be seen whether the president will row back on other claims of ignorance. Perhaps most notably, indicted Giuliani associate Lev Parnas – a Ukrainian-born businessman – claims to have been part of Trump-ordered efforts to oust the US ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who was seen as an obstacle to any probe into the Bidens. Mr Parnas has claimed Mr Trump “knew exactly what was going on”. But despite a trove of photographic evidence showing the pair together, Mr Trump strenuously denied knowing Mr Parnas, calling him a “con man” and saying: “I don’t know him at all … know nothing about him. I can only tell you this thing is a big hoax.” https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-contradicts-own-denial-admits-095009228.html B/A
  7. I can see Trump rewriting the bible to fit his image, because he knows more than..... Well you could guess the rest. King James did, and if we give him time, we could have the King Trump version. B/A
  8. I like the judge, and many here have criticized him for his many legal insights. If all this is true, than I would have to agree with him.. With all that said, you do have to admit Stone is one creepy dude... B/A
  9. In today's world Indy, any law official can fabricate... You could be driving down the street and if a cop thinks you look suspecious they can pull you over and search you just because. Remember the 4th amendment? It is out the window. B/A
  10. Thanks... I wasn't aware of that.. I can't find much about her stance on 2A, but here is a great look at who she is. https://www.businessinsider.com/who-is-tulsi-gabbard-bio-age-family-key-positions-2019-4 B/A
  11. Is she anti-gun, or not a moderate? I thought she was pretty level headed. B/A
  12. Lindsey Graham: Trump Tweeting About Stone Case 'Is Not Appropriate’ Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) suggested President Donald Trump should exercise some restraint on social media after the president seemed to confirm in a tweet that Attorney General William Barr had intervened in the sentencing of Roger Stone. The senator and Trump ally rebuffed Democrats’ calls for a hearing to investigate the president’s possible interference in the sentencing of his friend and former adviser. Graham also told CNN congressional correspondent Manu Raju on Wednesday to put himself in Trump’s shoes and understand his feeling that “people are out to get him.” Graham added, however, that while he’d told Trump it was understandable how he was feeling, “tweeting about an ongoing criminal matter is not appropriate.” In a series of tweets Wednesday, Trump suggested Barr had stepped in to recommend a more lenient sentence for Stone, who was convicted last November on charges including witness tampering and lying to Congress. “Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Barr for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even been brought,” the president tweeted. “Two months in jail for a Swamp Creature, yet 9 years recommended for Roger Stone (who was not even working for the Trump Campaign). Gee, that sounds very fair! Rogue prosecutors maybe? The Swamp!” Trump added, apparently referencing former Senate Intelligence Committee aide James Wolfe, who was sentenced in 2018 to two months in prison after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. After Trump tweeted early Tuesday that the initial sentencing recommendation was “horrible and very unfair” and a “miscarriage of justice,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia filed a new recommendation that afternoon suggesting no specific prison sentence. Later that day, all four of the federal prosecutors on the Stone trial, who had recommended a seven- to nine-year sentence for Stone, quit the case. https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/lindsey-graham-trump-roger-stone-001611421.html It must be tough for Lindsay... Having to swallow a life's dedication to the Rule of Law and his fundamental beliefs for the good of the party.. Poor guy. B/A
  13. I agree, she has tried to appeal to the right, which in itself isn't a bad idea... But the left is not aware of her.. She could be considered a moderate, and God knows we need more moderation. B/A
  14. You know I've told you in the past I like her... But most people don't know her... I was talking about politics with a friend of mine the other day and I consider him pretty well read, and he had heard of her, but didn't know anything about her. She just hasn't been able to break through. B/A
  15. I read this morning the average 401K is over $300,000. That's a lot of billions someone is going to steal when the markets crash. I say that because the average person who holds a 401K will not have time to react and will take the hit. Today many Americans are feeling rich. What happens if they lose 40% or more? This could get ugly real fast. B/A
  16. You are correct sir... The elite live by a different set of rules... Maybe we should run for office... LOL B/A
  17. I love the new America... Nothing is illegal... We can simply refuse subpoenas. We can lie when we testify. I can tell law officials I didn't know it was illegal. I can threaten people with bodily harm, incarceration, revenge. I can call my critics, "The Deep State" and that they are out to get me. I can have my friends on the jury say, "well yeah what he did was wrong, but that's okay"... My new ad campaign...... "America, where anything goes" B/A
