Chuck Schumer staffer Lauren B. Weiner faces federal charges for stealing credit history information on U.S. Senate candidate Michael Steele, who is currently the Lt. Gov. of Maryland.

Weiner worked for the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee which is run by Schumer, and although the Washington Post buried this story on page B-4 and didn’t even mention Schumer, count on talk radio to let the country know the culture of corruption that Schumer has built at the DSCC.

Michael Novak, writing at the FirstThings blog:

Did you know that religious women are having many times more babies in America than secular women? Not to put too partisan a ring on it, but the same article'”and the discussion it has prompted'”points out that women in the red states are having 12 percent more babies than women in the blue states.

The 17.4 percent of baby boomer women who had only one child account for a mere 7.8 percent of children born in the next generation. By contrast, nearly a quarter of the children of baby boomers descend from the mere 11 percent of baby boomer women who had four or more children.

The great difference in fertility rates between secular individualists and religious or cultural conservatives augurs a vast, demographically driven change in modern societies. Consider the demographics of France, for example. Among French women born in the early 1960s, less than a third have three or more children. But this distinct minority of French women (most of them presumably practicing Catholics and Muslims) produced more than 50 percent of all children born to their generation, in large measure because so many of their contemporaries had one child or none at all.

In the U.S., even without counting the loss of millions of black votes through abortion (at a rate of something like three to one with respect to white babies aborted) sheer demographics are killing the Democratic future. Feminism, gays, and abortion have not been demographic plusses.
