A Yale University professor has sparked outrage by suggesting the only way to deal with Japan's rapidly aging population is a mass suicide and disembowelment.  Yusuke Narita, an assistant professor of economics at Yale, defended his views in a New York Times profile this weekend after he made the remarks on a streaming news program in 2021. 'I feel like the only solution is pretty clear,' he said at the time. 'In the end, isn't it mass suicide and mass 'seppuku' of the elderly?'  Seppuku was a ritual disembowelment that was forced upon samurai who had brought dishonor to themselves in 19th century Japan.

The mass suicide is going on globally with everyone willingly stepping up and getting vaccinated. Some die quickly others will take a couple years.

The world would be better served if all those Gray Panthers started taking out woke college professors poisoning the minds of our young people as they go. Think about it, professor, what's the worst consequence they would face, life in prison...hahahahahahahaha?

And again, an opening salvo that at first shocks but as more and more people think like this it will become accepted. Think about abortion. First just within the first three months now up to and including the due date. Legalizing homosexual marriage and accepting sexual deviancy as normal and now we have sick people demanding the right to 'change' their sex. Children being mutilated. Men, saying they are women and having access to women's bathrooms and dressing rooms. Men in women's prisons. Believe me, this is a concerted effort to undermine all of Western Christian/Judeo Culture and replace it with pagan beliefs. If we think the last 'Dark Ages' was bad, we ain't seen nothing yet.

His dead eyes reveal a nihilism so typical of teachers these days. Imagine growing up being told that human beings are a cancer on the planet, that having children is immoral, that enjoying life is a crime, and that if you are not woke, you are nothing. This is the state of American universities today. They should be shut down forever and fumigated, not necessarily in that order.

The reasons for their aging population is the young people not only aren't having babies but a large portion aren't even having sex. Killing old people will change the ratio but that won't solve the problem. If he wants to make a controversial statement then how about advocating outlawing all forms of birth control including abortion, condoms, estrogen, etc. Encourage people to have sex. About 10 or 15 years ago the Prime Minister even declared a few days off for young people to have sex.

Any number of candidates may jump in to challenge former President Donald Trump for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination but, when it comes to the most buzzworthy name on the list, former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) provided her reason for him to stay out of it. (Video) The one time vice presidential nominee joined Newsmax host Eric Bolling on Tuesday’s episode of “The Balance” to discuss a number of topics like network deplatforming and President Joe Biden’s response to the Chinese spy balloon and other objects entering American airspace. When the discussion turned to the 2024 election, Palin seemed to follow President Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment

While 50 percent say the national media tried to push a false narrative, only 25 percent say the national media do not intend to mislead, misinform, or persuade the public. Twenty-three percent neither agreed nor disagreed. Nearly 75 percent say the news businesses have enough resources to accurately report the news.

This is a great pro-life message. A baby girl was born under the rubble of her family’s home in Syria after the 7.8 magnitude earthquakes devastated the area. Aya, which is Arabic for “a sign from God,” was found by rescue workers after the earthquake hit Turkey and Syria last week. She was still attached to her mother’s umbilical cord and was rushed to the nearby hospital, where she's been ever since. Aya’s mother died after giving birth, along with Aya's father and four siblings. Thankfully, AP News reports she’s in good health.

Because if he hoped to change the network back into a news network (and I say if), he seems to be being thwarted at every turn by the bad personnel with whom he has been left to deal. Licht fired a bunch of them, including Brian Stelter and John Harwood. But the ratings for the network have been the worst in nine years (Snip) there’s yet another scandal popping off now at CNN involving the top producer on Jake Tapper’s show.

Since President Trump left office, many of the “trustworthy” media outlets have created a talking point that is now held by a minority, yet noticeable number of Conservative Americans. The belief is “DeSantis is Trump, without the baggage.” This group supported President Trump’s policies and felt he did a tremendous job as president, but now feel the baggage that came with Trump would not be present with Ron DeSantis. Many have taken this a step further and believe this baggage would give DeSantis (or others) a better chance of winning in a general election against the Democrat nominee than President Trump.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.  — A group of Catholic women claims they were denied Communion at an Englewood church for wearing rainbow-colored face masks. Sally Odenheimer said it was an effort to show support for Maggie Barton, an LGBTQ teacher fired from the church’s affiliated Catholic school. Barton claims she was fired from All Souls Catholic School in Englewood after the Archdiocese of Denver learned of her same-sex relationship.The Archdiocese said she was fired because she violated her contract, which includes “refraining from taking any public position or conducting himself or herself in a manner that is contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church.”

U.S. intelligence officials were tracking the spy balloon that was shot down earlier this month since it lifted off from the south coast of China, U.S. officials said Tuesday. According to U.S. officials, after takeoff, the spy balloon drifted east in the direction of Guam and Hawaii and then went north to Alaska and entered U.S. airspace on Jan. 28. Given the path, it's possible that the balloon was blown off course by weather, but U.S. officials said that once it came south over the continental United States, it was being controlled by China. The tracking of the balloon was first reported by The Washington Post. China has insisted

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine took to the podium on Tuesday to update reporters and citizens about the devastating train derailment in E. Palestine, Ohio, on February 3. The small town has been reeling in the wake of the derailment and subsequent controlled burn of dangerous chemicals days after the wreck. One of the most astounding revelations from the press conference (watch below) was that the train was not classified as carrying hazardous chemicals. “I learned today from the PUCO [Public Utilities Council of Ohio] that this train was not considered a high hazardous material train,” DeWine said. As a result, the railroad was not required to notify anyone in Ohio
