New York-based diversity group plants LGBT-oriented seed into the minds of children using books.
“Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.” — DragQueenStoryHour.org

Forgotten Battles Against the Deep State part 5
On June 15, 2019 the strange fact was made public by Canada’s National Post that the entire 40 year CSIS dossier compiled on Canada’s most famous Prime Minister, Pierre Elliot Trudeau was destroyed by Canada’s spy agency in 1989.
How this embarrassing fact could have gone un-noticed for so long is tied to access to information laws in Canada which make all government dossiers available on any public or private citizen 20 years after their deaths. With the 20 year anniversary of Pierre Trudeau’s death just around the corner, hungry historians searching for a story filed early applications to read this long awaited dossier which was supposed to be awaiting scrutinizing eyes in the Archives of Canada.

The US President Donald Trump’s reported decision abruptly to call off military strike against Iran which he’d previously ordered, highlights the growing complexity of the US-Iranian entanglement.
Indeed, it takes political courage to rationalise amidst such a dangerous situation that discretion is the better part of valour. Trump has been smart enough. But, having said that, there’s going to be downstream consequences. The Trump administration appears paralysed. And Tehran has seized the diplomatic initiative.

During the long twentieth century, the United States twice rescued Europe from its own follies — to its benefit, and this year’s dramatic shift to the right in the European Parliamentary elections is partly credited to a long campaign by the American Deus ex-Machina Steve Bannon. Overlooked, however, are the US wars in Africa and the Middle East that caused tens of thousands to seek safer lives in white, largely Christian Europe. During the long twentieth century, the Americans twice rescued Europe from its own follies — to its benefit. While long a potential battlefield between two nuclear powers, Europe is still the prize over which the US and Russia vie for influence. as it struggles to come to terms with the loss of Caucasian dominance in a world represented by the infinite varieties of honey. and Sunday’s vote shows that its ‘graduation’ to competitive status continued to benefit Washington. Whether or not switching superpower oversight would make the Eurasian peninsula a better place to live remains to be seen.
