Japan ‘on the Verge’ of Societal Collapse
Due to Plummeting Birth Rate, Prime Minister Says

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 1/25/2023 1:39:25 AM

Japanese prime minister Fumio Kishida spoke in desperate terms about the country’s cratering birth rate in an address to his nation’s parliament on Monday. “Now or never when it comes to policies regarding births and child-rearing-it is an issue that simply cannot wait any longer,” Prime Minister Kishida said in a speech marking the new parliamentary session. “The number of births dropped below 800,000 last year.” “Japan is standing on the verge of whether we can continue to function as a society,” he added. For perspective, Japan experienced nearly 2 million births per year throughout the 1970s.

Congratulations to Japan for fulfilling one of the demands of the nut jobs in Davos. Zero population growth. Japan's gross of mealworms will be the envy of the rest of the world.

They're not on the verge of any such thing. Their population growth curve has turned a tiny bit negative. The sky is not falling.

That's a tough one. Can't force them to have sex. Can't force them to get married. Guys are timid with courtships and girls want guys with careers and money. Government is only looking after young families with kids but has done nothing much economically for single men and women. Some, after experiencing parents' loveless relationship assume the institution of marriage is over-rated and not worth the commitment.

In the 80's, which was the last time I paid attention to Japan, their cultural emphasis was on fighting ones way up the corporate ladder and working oneself to death. That always has an impact on the family. Back then the pictures looked like a giant anthill, with people going around like robots in perfect synch. Little variation in dress or behavior was allowed. That will take its toll.

When humans try to defy or thwart Nature, and contraception and abortion is a very popular method, it has a very nasty habit of turning around and hit humanity hard in the ass. Once the advanced civilizations of the White and the East Asian yellow races extinct themselves, who will be left to manage the world?

Studies have shown that Japanese men watch even more porn than American men, so that might explain a lot of this. But for generations the Japanese were indoctrinated to believe that their first loyalty was to their corporate employers above family life. It’s going to be hard to change the culture in time.

Gates, the WEF, the EU, Biden and the Rino's want to depopulate the West, and replace them with foreigners. Russia meantime, has killed off all their males in wars, and soon will have no Russians. Russia, the largest land mass on the planet will soon have a population only enough to fill a county. Japan can worry about economic collapse from no population, but they will collapse under debt long before that.

This is real and has been seen coming for decades but noted across ALL the developed countries of the world - not just Japan. Even China is recognizing a future with actual population shrinkage. The causes of non-replacement birth-rates are numerous. In the West, for the sake of the planet, millennials have been deliberately made afraid to have children - and encouraged to remain as children in their own behaviors. This has now been terribly made worse by the increase in death-rates over the last three years as caused by not just by Covid but even more by toxic vaccines and governmental idiocy/malevolence.

The LEFT has been making this claim about Japan for over 25 years. It's part of an arm-twisting campaign from the Globalist Elites to force Japan into allowing migration from third-world hellholes that the Elites have created through their failed foreign policies and propping up of tyrants and dictators. Japan is not stoopid. Hang tight, Japan, and tell the Elites to pound sand.

At least Japan is not being invaded by hordes of illegal invaders swarming across their border and replacing the native Japanese population. The Japanese are keeping their national identity and keeping their country a safe place. Japan is full of "first world problems" and has been fortunate to skip most of the third world problems due to uncontrolled illegal immigration.

The demands of work and balancing it with a wife, home and family are too much for some. America has a similar problem with the white race but our minorities continue to multiply because our collective genius has found a way where white people pay for everything so minorities no longer have to work, just raise a family. What are they going to do when they reach their ultimate goal, getting rid of 100% of the white people?

People have been raised to want everything now and not to work and make plans for the future. Raising a family is hard work if you want to do it right. More time should be spent celebrating families and not air-headed celebrities and sport's heroes.

QAs we’ve seen all too often, some so-called Republican “leaders” are anything but when it comes to pushing back against the radical left’s woke agenda, which includes such bright ideas as defunding the police, implementing dangerous policies like bail reform, and teaching black children to view their white classmates as their oppressors. But in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to be an unapologetic proponent of common-sense solutions that are expressly designed to reject the radical wokeness that has, in some parts of the country, slithered its way into public school systems, collegiate academia, government, the sports world, banking and the workplace, and beyond.

Washington – The New Jersey man who admitted to spraying U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick with pepper spray during the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack was sentenced to 80 months in prison on Friday in a Washington, D.C. courtroom packed with Sicknick's colleagues and fellow officers. "I don't know what got into you," said federal Judge Thomas Hogan, as he imposed the yearslong prison sentence on Julian Khater, "somehow you got determined to push your way through the crowd." Hogan also fined Khater $10,000. Sicknick died of natural causes a day after defending the Capitol during the Jan. 6 assault, the D.C. medical examiner's office announced last year.

The latest numbers from the Bureau of Economic Analysis show that the U.S. economy grew by 2.9 percent in the fourth quarter of last year, and 2.1 percent for 2022. While the White House was quick to take credit for the state of the nation’s economy, they might want to think twice. This latest report should have alarm bells ringing, not trumpets sounding. That’s because economic growth is slowing down. Even the areas which contributed positively to gross domestic product (GDP) are not necessarily signs of prosperity. For example, business investment grew at only 1.4 percent in the fourth quarter, but that was almost entirely inventory growth. Nonresidential investment,

The Deputy Prime Minister of Canada and confirmed WEF goon Chrystia Freeland has determined that the American middle class “needs a pay cut.” Following an anecdote of an unnamed person who gave her the idea, she explicitly confirms her belief that the prescription for a middle-class wealth downgrade is the correct policy position but mentions the “very difficult” political and social sell to the middle class. As we slide further down the slope into multinational technocracy, the rhetoric will gradually shift in this direction. The “green” revolution and veganism and other energy and food restriction schemes began, if you can recall, with promises of economic expansion

The companies’ presence in the filing implies that FTX owes all of them money, though precisely how much, and what for, remains unclear based on the filing.

In the weeks after Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s Christmastime visit to Washington, U.S., German and other European leaders became locked in an increasingly ugly t-for-tat over whether to send tanks to Ukraine. As language got heated behind the scenes, neither the U.S. nor Germany would budge — even as the standoff exposed a rare breach between two of Kyiv’s biggest backers. Ultimately, President Joe Biden decided it was more important to show a unified front and send the tanks — a move that could go down as one of the most consequential decisions in the multinational effort to arm Ukraine. Biden concluded it was important to move in lockstep with an ally,

Ronna McDaniel won a fourth term to head the Republican National Committee (RNC) during a secret ballot vote by members on Friday, capping off a contentious election spurred by calls within the party for new leadership. McDaniel fended off two challengers — California attorney Harmeet Dhillon and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a staunch denier of the 2020 presidential election results. She received 111 votes, while Dhillon received 51 and Lindell received four. Former Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), who did not ultimately make a run for RNC chair, also received one vote.

That followed a contentious, months-long battle with notable GOP lawyer Harmeet Dhillon, who ultimately ended up well short of the number to overtake McDaniel.

The Biden administration is facing some scrutiny over a proposal to change the way it racially/ethnically classifies federal employees. At the moment, anyone of Middle Eastern or North African descent only has the option of identifying/being classified as “white.” Were the administration’s proposal to be approved, these individuals would instead have the option of identifying as Middle Eastern or North African. The proposal would accomplish this by rewriting the Office of Management and Budget 1997 Statistical Policy Directive No. 15: Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity (SPD 15).
