Among restrictive COVID-19 mandates and government lockdowns that hobbled the economy, significantly more people left blue states to resettle in areas in the southern and western U.S.

According to the United Van Lines’ newest annual National Migration Study of those the company helped move in 2020, Democrat-led states experienced a much higher percentage of people departing than entering. The top five that showed more people leaving than entering were such as New Jersey (70 percent of movers were leaving), New York (67 percent), Illinois (67 percent), Connecticut (63 percent), and California (59 percent).

While those blue states struggled to keep residents satisfied, other states experienced a higher number of people moving in rather than leaving. The top five states with inbound movers were Idaho (70 percent of moves were inbound), South Carolina (64 percent), Oregon (63 percent), South Dakota (62 percent), and Arizona (62 percent).

Of those who moved, some cited relocation or transfer for a job, with 72 percent of these flocking to Nebraska; retirement, with 41 percent of these flocking to Delaware; and even cost of living, with 11 percent of those for whom this was their top concern relocating to Idaho.

Many others, specifically between March and October, also cited government mandates and restrictions related to COVID-19 as the reason for their moves.

Sixty percent said they were moving because they were concerned for their “personal and family health and wellbeing,” and 59 percent said it was because they wanted to be closer to family. Fifty-seven percent of those who moved chose to because of the ability to work remotely or other changes with their employment, and 53 percent were seeking a “lifestyle change or improvement of quality of life.”

Many of these who chose to depart blue cities and states such as Nassau, N.Y., Bergen, N.J., and Trenton, N.J. due to pandemic circumstances settled in redder areas of the South and West United States, with cities such as Wilmington, N.C., Sarasota, Fla., and Boise, Idaho topping the list.

There was also a strong shift away from urban centers to more rural areas by those who chose to move in 2020.

“United Van Lines’ data makes it clear that migration to western and southern states, a prevalent pattern for the past several years, persisted in 2020,” said Michael A. Stoll, economist, and professor in the Department of Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles. “However, we’re seeing that the COVID-19 pandemic has without a doubt accelerated broader moving trends, including retirement driving top inbound regions as the Baby Boomer generation continues to reach that next phase of life.”

South Carolina House passes bill that would prohibit most abortions if a fetal heartbeat is detected

Published

on

The South Carolina House of Representatives on Wednesday voted 79-35 to pass legislation that would prohibit most abortions. 

The bill must pass through a procedural vote in the House on Thursday prior to heading to GOP Gov. Henry McMaster who has indicated that he will sign it, according to the Associated Press. Two Republicans voted against the legislation while two Democrats voted for it. The state Senate passed the measure last month. 

The bill requires doctors to carry out an ultrasound to check for a fetal heartbeat and if a heartbeat is identified an abortion can only be performed in certain circumstances.

The legislation would not penalize a woman for obtaining an unlawful abortion, though the individual responsible for performing the abortion could face consequences.

The outlet reported that other states have approved similar or even more stringent abortion prohibitions which could be implemented if the Supreme Court throws out the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. All of the other states’ abortion bans are currently entangled by court challenges and if the South Carolina bill is approved it will likely face litigation that prevents it from going into effect, according to the AP.

Son of prominent conservative leader Bozell arrested in connection with Capitol siege

Published

Leo Brent Bozell IV, the son of conservative leader L. Brent Bozell III, is facing federal charges in connection with the Jan. 6 breech of the U.S. Capitol.

Bozell is charged with obstructing an official proceeding, entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct, according to a federal complaint unsealed Tuesday.

The official affidavit includes photos and videos that appear to show Bozell inside of the U.S. Capitol Building, including the Senate chambers.

At least one photo shows Bozell wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with a logo for a Christian school at which he once coached girls basketball, according to the Huffington Post.

The FBI obtained a photo of him posing with a student of a school, in Hershey, Pa.

His father founder, who founded the Media Research Center and other conservative groups, has condemned the riots, saying, “You can never countenance police being attacked. You cannot countenance our national capitol being breached like this. … I think it is absolutely wrong,” according to NewsBusters.

Trump calls Limbaugh ‘legend,’ in first TV interview since Senate trial

Published

on

Former President Trump on Wednesday afternoon praised the career of conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has died of cancer.

“He loved his country, and he loved his fans,” Trump said on the Fox News Channel. “He is a legend.”

The interview was Trump’s first since the conclusion of his Senate impeachment trial last week.

Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, announced her husband’s death earlier in the day on his radio show. He had been diagnosed about a year ago with Stage-IV lung cancer. He was 70.

The president also said he had a personal friendship with Limbaugh, who was an early supporter of his 2016 presidential bid and who, like Trump, thought the president won reelection in 2020.

Trump also pointed out that Limbaugh was a provocateur in his views about conservative politics that often sparked backlash from liberals and other critics. 

Trump last year in his State of the Union address awarded Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
