Perhaps those conjuring up the idea just can’t wait to raise the next generation of Harvey Weinsteins and Hollywood pedophiles. And the idea is Hollywood-worthy: a “Drag Queen Story Hour” in which a man dressed as a woman (and in the most recent case appearing as a demon) reads to young children — all approved by the Church of Satan.
Except this isn’t a movie, but something actually happening in some cities across America.
A recent event in NYC opened with the drag queen asking the tiny kids, “Who wants to be a drag queen when they grow up?” Some little hands were raised and little voices answered in the affirmative.
WND.com reports on the latest Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH):
The Michelle Obama public library in Long Beach, California, has presented to children who are part of its young readers program a huge array of diversity and “inclusion” agendas.
In one shot.
It was when Xochi Mochi [photo above] arrived for a visit.
That made the program pro-LGBTQ.
And drag queen-friendly.
And Satanist-approved, with the character’s red-tipped, demon-like horns.
All to read to children for LGBTQ History Month.
The event’s description at the library’s website reads, “Join us for a celebration of LGBTQ History Month! All ages welcome! Celebration will include: Drag Queen Story Hour featuring Xochi Mochi at 12pm, a community art hour at 1pm and an LGBTQ History Timeline Workshop starting at 2pm. Brought to you by a collaboration between the Long Beach Public Library, The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach, the GSA Network and The Imperial Court of Long Beach.” Below is a news video about the event.
Unsurprisingly, the Church of Satan lauded the Long Beach DQSH, responding to parental criticism by tweeting “Hail Satan.”
The DQSH project is straightforward about its goals, stating at its website (I won’t provide the link and give them traffic), “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.”
It all sounds so “open-minded” and “inclusive,” but does people presenting “as they wish” include wearing blackface, a KKK outfit, or Nazi uniform? The point is that every society has its stigmas; it’s just a question of what they will be. “Inclusiveness” and non-judgmentalism are ploys, not realities.
As for twisting reality, another place hosting DQSHs is NYC’s Brooklyn Public Library, which has been featuring these outrages since last fall. A video of one such event is below.

Expected to be popular among fitness fans, retailers also predict protein bread will be a hit for anyone interested in meeting weight loss goals through diet or reaping other benefits from this nutrient-packed bread.
Protein Bread Benefits
1. Maintains Skeletal Muscle
Sarcopenia is the loss of muscle mass and strength that occurs with advancing age. Although estimated prevalence and definitions vary, it’s a commonly recognized condition among older adults.
Maintaining skeletal muscle function throughout the life span into old age is important for independent living and good health. Several studies have identified protein as a key macronutrient for older adults. Protein intake greater than the amount needed to avoid negative nitrogen balance may prevent sarcopenia and improve bone health.
Consuming the right amount of protein may improve function and quality of life in healthy older adults, as well as improve the ability older adults to recover from disease and trauma. (1)
2. Aids Weight loss
Protein may be an effective weight loss strategy since it generally increases satiety to a greater extent than carbohydrates and fats. A randomized study of 27 overweight men had the men consume an energy-restricted diet as either high-protein or normal protein for 12 weeks. The high-protein diet group experienced greater fullness throughout the day compared to the normal amount of protein group. (2)
In a six-month randomized trial of 60 overweight and obese subjects, weight loss was almost twice as great in subjects receiving high-protein diet compared with a moderate protein diet. The benefits of consuming higher-protein product was also demonstrated in longer-term studies. In a 12-month study, 50 overweight and obese subjects, weight loss was greater in the high-protein group. During the six-month follow-up period, the high-protein group experienced 10 percent greater reduction in intra-abdominal adipose tissue than the medium-protein group. (3)
3. Lowers Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors
Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Dietary fiber intake is widely recognized as a part of a healthy diet and keeping serum cholesterol levels at bay. Higher dietary fiber intake is inversely associated with the incidence of cardiovascular disease.
Dietary fiber has some beneficial effects on cardiovascular health by lowering serum cholesterol concentrations via an increase in the excretion of bile acids and inhibiting fatty acid synthesis in the liver. High-fiber foods like protein bread may also help control body weight because of causing greater satiety and slower digestion. (4)
4. Boosts Cognitive Function
The brain is the most metabolically active organ in the body by far, representing only 2 percent of body weight but accounting for over 20 percent of the body’s total energy expenditure. B vitamins’ general metabolic functions, alongside their roles in neurochemical synthesis, may therefore impact cognitive function, and enriched high-protein bread is a good source of B vitamins. (5) As for brain atrophy, homocysteine is risk factor for cognitive impairment and dementia. Dietary administration of B vitamins, such as in protein bread, may help lower plasma concentrations of homocysteine.
A double-blind, randomized, controlled study found that homocysteine-lowering B vitamins may slow the rate of accelerated brain atrophy in patients with mild cognitive impairment. Our brains slowly atrophy as we age, but the shrinking is accelerated in participants suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. In a recent study, participants who were given B vitamins for two years had decreased rate of brain shrinkage. The rate of atrophy in participants with high homocysteine levels was cut in half. (6)
5. May Help Treat Colorectal Cancer
Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer. Evidence from ecological studies, migrant studies and secular trend studies suggest that environmental risk factors are of major importance in the cause of colorectal cancer. (7) Dietary habits have been suspected as important, but only intakes of alcohol and processed and red meat are considered to be convincing dietary risk factors for colorectal cancer.
Dietary fiber found in protein bread may help gastrointestinal peristalsis alleviate constipation and absorb the harmful materials in the gut, leading to their removal. In addition, dietary fiber may improve the intestinal flora and provide energy and nutrition for healthy bacteria in the gut. With increased whole grain consumption, bowel movement frequency increased in six weeks, while there was only a slight, non-significant increase when consuming refined grains. Whole grains have been shown to decrease intestinal transit time, thereby increasing bowel movement frequency and helping prevent and/or treat colorectal cancer. (8)

Protein Bread History
In Syracuse, N.Y., three brothers — with the help of their personal trainer — wanted to develop a healthy line of bread products that wasn’t only enjoyable to eat on a daily basis, but also helped achieve their fitness goals. In 2008, after a year of development, P28 protein bread was the first original high-protein bread on the market. The demand for P28 bread products has gained popularity as consumers became aware of the benefits of a healthy and high-protein diet.
Meanwhile in Australia, the Protein Bread Co. was founded to help thousands of health-focused and athletic individuals meet their daily nutritional needs with the low-carbohydrate and protein-packed bread.
Some protein bread brands contain wheat, so people who are gluten-intolerant or on the Paleo diet should avoid these brands. In addition, too much protein can lead to conditions such as kidney disease, weight gain, osteoporosis, cancer and kidney stones. (10)
Because there’s no standard formula for high-protein bread, it’s important to scan the packaging for things you may want to avoid as well.
Consuming high-protein bread alone will not help with weight loss, though it can aid the weight loss process. Protein has calories, so if you eat too much, and don’t exercise, it can get stored as fat.

- Protein bread benefits include helping build skeletal muscle, weight loss, and help in preventing cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and colorectal cancer risk factors.
- Too much protein can lead to health risk, and it is best to scan the ingredient labels to prevent consuming allergens.
At least a dozen terror cells linked to Islamic State have been uncovered across the globe in the past month alone, research has found.
In the past four weeks, ISIS cells have sprung up in as far flung places as Russia, Ireland and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
It’s spreading: A dozen ISIS terror cells have been uncovered across the world in the past four weeks alone
This map, compiled with the help of the Clarion Project, shows that ISIS is establishing more cells in North Africa and in the Gulf States and conquering new ground in Europe and central Africa.
News of its most recent ‘addition’ came on Wednesday when a video showing jihadists claiming to have established the ‘Islamic State in Central Africa’ began circulating on pro-ISIS websites and social media accounts.
The video shows a man addressing the camera in Arabic, calling for ISIS-supporters to join them in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
ISIS fighters fleeing its now-destroyed ‘caliphate’ in Iraq and Syria are believed to be heading for Libya, where the terrorist group has an established presence.
Allegiances: ISIS has several factions, known as ‘provinces’ who have sworn loyalty to leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was thought to have been killed earlier this year
It is thought that they will use this as a stepping stone to win territory in countries further down the continent.
Four cells have been exposed in Libya’s neighbouring countries Tunisia and Egypt since the end of September.
‘While it is hard to say where ISIS will appear next, we can assume that after the group is driven out of Syria and Iraq, it will go to where it feels (relatively) more safe – namely, Libya – and from there move on to other countries in north Africa,’ says Clarion Project’s Arabic specialist Ran Meir.
‘In the east, although ISIS is being driven out of the Philippines, it will still continue to maintain a small presence there and also in the neighboring country of Malaysia.
‘In addition, we know the group maintains sleeper cells in European countries, as well as in the more stable Middle Eastern countries of Iran, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States.’
ISIS has been active in Russia since at least June 2015, when The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – Caucasus Province was established, but earlier this month, two terror cells were busted in Moscow, leading to fears that they are spreading from the North Caucasus region across the country.
The ISIS cell being investigated by Irish Gardai is reportedly run by two men originally from the Russian federal republic of Chechnya.
Authorities believe that the two men are heading up a cell in west Ireland that has been shipping computer parts to factions in Chechnya, Iraq and Syria.
Defeat: Iraqi government forces, holds up an Islamic State flag after capturing territory northwest of Mosul, where the terrorist group is now defeated
Although ISIS has had its base in Iraq and Syria, now all-but obliterated by government and US-backed forces, they have factions in several nations around the world, often referred to as ‘provinces’.
The Maute group in the Philippines, also known as the Islamic State of Lanao, pledged allegiance to ISIS in 2015, launched an attack on the city of Marawi in May, as an attempt to establish a Filipino ‘ISIS caliphate’.
As ISIS have lost ground in the Middle East, an increasing number of Islamist terrorists are thought to be looking to join Maute, including ISIS fighters who have left Iraq and Syria.
In Egypt, ISIS-affiliate Wilyat Sinai has been leading an Islamist militant insurgency in northern Sinai, which borders the Gaza Strip and Israel, for several years.
Wilyat Sinai, meaning the Sinai Province, pledged allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in 2014 and has carried out several terror attacks under the black Islamic State flag since.
Islamic State in Somalia, officially established in October 2015, have been taking part in the Jihadist insurgency in the country and carried out several terror attacks.
However, the group of a few hundred fighters, has been perceived as a threat to fellow Islamist terrorist group Al-Shabaab – loyal to Al-Qaeda – and they are now also fighting each other.
West African terrorist group Boko Haram have been referred to as Islamic State West Africa Province, ISWAP, after swapping allegiance from Al-Qaeda to ISIS in March 2015.
ISIS also have provinces in Yemen, Algeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
