The U.S. Census Bureau recently reported that New York City’s population grew to a record 8,804,000 in 2020, from 8,175,000 in 2010.
This is an increase of 629,000 residents, or nearly 8%.
If you believe these numbers, I got three bridges — Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn — and the Hugh Carey Tunnel, which connect Manhattan and Brooklyn, to sell you.
As I documented in a Newsmax article in April, the Census Bureau reported that New York State’s population soared by an improbable 762,000 people, or 4%, between July 1, 2019 and April 1, 2020, from 19,454,000 to 20,216,000.
But, suspiciously, New York’s population had inched-up a miniscule 76,000, or four-tenths of 1%, between 2010, when it was 19,378,000, and 2019.
Furthermore, New York City's annual population, on the city government’s website, increased from 8,175,000 in 2010, to 8,469,000 in 2016, or by 294,000 residents.
But then it decreased over the next three years, and was 8,337,000 on July 1, 2019.
In short, the city’s population declined by 132,000 between 2016 and 2019.
But then, miraculously, in the nine months between July 1, 2019 and April 1, 2020, it skyrocketed by 467,000 to 8,804,000 residents.
Additionally, on April 1, 2020, NYC’s ostensible 8.8 million residents were only 44% of the state’s inflated 20.2 million. But they accounted for 467,000, or 61%, of the state’s fictitious 762,000 growth, during the previous nine months.
Indeed, the website, "World Population Review" gives these declining populations in New York City during the last six years: 8.5 million, 2016; 8.4 million, 2017; 8.4 million, 2018; 8.3 million, 2019; 8.3 million 2020; and 8.2 million, 2021.
Another statistical website, "Worldometers," pegs NYC’s population this year as 8,175,000.
Furthermore, the Census Bureau reports that the United States population grew by just 1% between July 1, 2019 and April 1, 2020: from 328.2 million to 331.4 million.
Thus, it's totally inconceivable that of the 3.2 million people added in America during these nine months, Gotham accounted for 467,000, or 15%.
Moreover, New York State’s 747,000 increase in residents, from 19,454,000 on July 1, 2019, to 20,201,000, on April 1, 2020, represents a total rapidly-changing 23% of America’s 3.2 million growth.
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s horrendous educational, public-safety and public-health policies, initiated during his second term (which began in January of 2018) likely have led to a huge exodus from the city, especially among families with students in K-12 schools.
As I documented in a Newsmax article in June, enrollment in the city’s public schools plunged by 150,000 or 14%, between 2014 and 2021: from 1,040,000 to 890,000.
This massive exodus from the nation’s most populous city was also triggered by the New York State legislature, which passed a law in 2019 that eliminating bail for many criminal offensives.
The obvious result: serious crimes exploded in New York City.
Mayor de Blasio’s disastrous decisions during the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic may have also contributed to the city’s continuing hemorrhaging of at least 200,000 residents in the last three years
We must never forget that 29,570 New York City residents have died of COVID since March of 2020; this is according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), purportedly as a result of the abominable policy decisions of Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Finally, it is critical that the next time the Republicans have a trifecta in Washington, D.C. — White House, Senate , and House — they pass a law that mandates a more scientific decennial census.
The current method, of house-to-house and apartment-to-apartment canvassing, has been a perennial invitation for suspiciously-inflated counts in Democratic-controlled cities and states.
