Cancelled: Kirk Cameron is denied story-hour slot by public libraries for his new faith-based kids book

Kirk Cameron's book publisher, Brave Books, has been unable to place Cameron into a public library story hour for kids connected to his new children's book, "As You Grow," as of this week. One library told the book publisher bluntly, "Our messaging does not align."
With a new children's book out that celebrates family, faith and biblical wisdom, actor-writer-producer Kirk Cameron cannot reach scores of American children or their families in many U.S. cities via the public library system because over 50 public libraries have either outright rejected him or not responded to requests on his behalf.

A story-hour program for kids and parents connected to new book releases is an activity that many libraries typically present to their patrons and communities.

Many of the same libraries that won't give Cameron a slot, however, are actively offering "drag queen" story hours or similar programs for kids and young people, according to Cameron's book publisher and according to a review of the libraries' websites and current program listings.

Some library programs promote gender fluidity, inclusion and diversity. Others offer "name change" clinics for older teens and adults who want to alter their official paperwork for gender-identity reasons.

Brave Books, Cameron's publisher, shared details of the story-hour requests — and the rejections received to date — with Fox News Digital exclusively this week.

The Rochambeau Public Library in Providence, Rhode Island, for instance, told Cameron and his book publisher by phone, "No, we will pass on having you run a program in our space."

"We are a very queer-friendly library. Our messaging does not align," the library worker also told Brave Books.


'Utter nonsense': France's plan to ban domestic flights derided by head of global airline industry

President Macron wants to force travellers off aeroplanes and on to trains
Emmanuel Macron's flagship environmental policy to ban domestic flying in France has been condemned as "complete and utter nonsense" by the body that represents global airlines.

France is to outlaw flights between destinations where there is an existing rail connection that takes less than two-and-a-half hours, such as between Orly airport, south of Paris, and Nantes or Bordeaux.

The European Commission signed off the rules earlier this week, which are expected to come into force in the New Year.

Comment: One wonders just what this 'single European sky' would entail? Because throughout Europe sinister green initiatives are being 'trialed', and the ultimate result for most of them is a population on a permanent 'climate' lockdown: Coming soon: Climate lockdowns and the "15 minute city" - courtesy of the WEF


Have the woke jumped the shark? WaPo article whines that Discovery's 'Shark Week' has 'too many white men'

Jaws screenshot
"Sometimes that shark looks right at ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about a shark is he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn't even seem to be livin'... 'til he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all your poundin' and your hollerin' those sharks come in and... they rip you to pieces."
I'll never forget the first time I saw Jaws, and this monologue is what I recall the most. Nothing else. This scene told the story of the horror sharks create, and how surviving an attack from being eaten alive would completely psychologically change a person.

Perhaps John Milius, who wrote the dialogue in this scene, inadvertently documented exactly what the Woke represent in 2022 America. Maybe that's the best word for these anti-white Communists.


Enough people automatically know this word denotes evil now.


Attorneys General release full transcript of Fauci's 7-hour deposition: It's damning

Dr. Anthony Fauci
Fauci could not cite a single study supporting the use of masks and reportedly based "his lockdown advocacy on the observations of a single guy relying on reports from a dictator."

Attorneys General for Missouri and Louisiana released the full 446-page transcript from their November 23rd, 2022, deposition of Dr. Anthony Fauci, which was taken as part of a landmark lawsuit against the Biden Administration for colluding with social media companies to censor first-amendment protected speech.

"Fauci's recent deposition only confirmed what we already knew: federal bureaucrats in collusion with social media companies want to control not only what you think, but especially what you say," said Attorney General Landry.

"During no time in human history was this more obvious than during the COVID-19 crisis where social engineering tactics were used against the American public, not to limit your exposure to a virus, but to limit your exposure to information that did not fit within a government sanctioned narrative."


German police raids group accused of far-right coup plot, minor aristocrat implicated

Waidmannsheil castle

Waidmannsheil castle in Saaldorf is one of the locations owned by Heinrich XIII which is said to have been used by far right extremists to plot a takeover of Germany's parliament
An alleged far-right plot led by a German aristocrat to overthrow the state that sought the backing of the Russian government has been thwarted in Germany, after a series of dawn raids across the country.

Twenty-five people including a 71-year-old prince, a retired military commander, and an acting judge and former MP for the far-right Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) were planning a violent overthrow of the state, including an armed attack on the parliament, inspired by the storming of the US Capitol, according to prosecutors.

Comment: They were inspired by a deep state subversion of a peaceful protest outside of the capitol? If true, this group weren't as clued up on deep-state machinations as they thought they were.

The group was apparently driven in ideology by the deep-state conspiracy theories of QAnon and the Reichsbürger ("empire citizens") movement, which denies the right of modern Germany to exist.

Comment: Again, QAnon is a deep state psyop.

It was planning to renegotiate the country's post-second world war settlement, insisting the "Deutsche Reich" still had legitimacy despite having ended with the Nazis' defeat in 1945.

Comment: Germany seems to be increasing its crack down on groups such as these; the following is from 2021: Germany cracks down: 20 arrested in raid on banned Salafist group, 8 arrested in raid on far right group

Now they want to ban electric cars to save energy.

Over the last few years, the media and politicians have been hyping up electric cars and telling everyone to buy them to save the planet (ironic, buying more stuff making the rich even richer, all to save the planet of course!).

Things have gone so far that the EU recently announced they would ban the sale of new fossil fuel cars from 2035. Meanwhile Britain has gone even further and are banning new normal cars from the year 2030. That is only 7 years away.

So they are pushing for everyone to switch over to electric cars. We all know that will never, ever happen. The power grid simply cannot handle it and there isn't enough batteries to go around to be able to make all those new electric cars.

Now Switzerland is planning on banning people from driving their electric cars when there is an energy shortage. Crisis measures could also see streaming services like Netflix having to reduce the resolution of videos and use of game consoles being banned.

Comment: More likely the population will be adjusted to fit the resources.


Netflix faces Israeli backlash over Nakba film

Scene from 'Farha'
In recent weeks Israeli officials and supporters of Israel have launched a smear campaign against Farha, the debut film from Jordanian director Darin Sallam.

Farha, which premiered on Netflix this week, tells the story of a young Palestinian girl who witnesses Zionist military forces kill her family during the Nakba. The Nakba refers to the ethnic cleansing of Palestine that occurred in 1948. Historians estimate that about 15,000 were murdered and over 750,000 were displaced from their homes.

The film will be Jordan's official entry to the International Feature Film category for the 95th Academy Awards to be held in March 2023.

The story is personal for Sallam, who says its based on a friend of her mother's. Sallam told Deadline in a recent interview:
"She was locked up by her father to protect her life. She survived [the conflict] and she made it to Syria, where she met a Syrian girl and shared her story with her. This Syrian girl grew up, got married and had a child, and she shared the story with her daughter — and this daughter happened to be me."


Apple sued over air tags allegedly being used by stalkers

The Apple AirTag
Two women have filed a class action lawsuit against Apple over its AirTag devices, which they claim allowed their ex partners to stalk them.

On Monday, the proposed class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. It reportedly alleges that Apple did not put in place sufficient safety parameters that would keep stalkers from using the devices to keep track of victims.

"With a price point of just $29, it has become the weapon of choice of stalkers and abusers," the lawsuit reportedly said.

The plaintiffs also reportedly allege that the devices were connected to murders of women in Indiana and Ohio this year.

Comment: Apple AirTag has been on the market since April 20, 2021.


Oliver Stone voices opinion on root cause of Ukraine conflict

Film Director Oliver Stone
"America has helped make Kiev the enemy of Moscow", the famed director says.

The US turning Ukraine into an anti-Russian country since 2014 is the root cause of the current conflict, award-winning film director Oliver Stone said in an interview with the Serbian daily Politika, published Monday.

Ahead of the Red Sea International Film Festival (RSIFF) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he chairs the jury, Stone told his interviewer:
"Who are we to point fingers at anyone? We're telling Russians what to do, I mean it's ridiculous, given what we've done."
What is currently happening in Ukraine is "not simple at all," Stone added, but it's getting reduced in the West to "Russians invaded." There is no mention of anything that has been happening in Donbass since 2014, or how many people were displaced because the US was arming Ukraine.

Stone told Politika:
"Since 2014, Ukraine was no longer neutral but anti-Russian, and that's what disrupted the balance. Every war has causes and consequences if one is willing to pay attention."


Coming soon: Climate lockdowns and the "15 minute city" - courtesy of the WEF

The 15 Minute City is a UN and WEF plan, because they care about you want you to drive less.

A cartoon from the WEF just for you good girls and boys:

Climate lockdowns coming
In the WEF's own words — this rearrangement of cities is absolutely about climate change:
As climate change and global conflict cause shocks and stresses at faster intervals and increasing severity, the 15-minute city will become even more critical.
And the solution was the pandemic (they really say that):
The obvious, yet incomplete, answer is the pandemic.... with COVID-19 and its variants keeping everyone home (or closer to home than usual), the 15-minute city went from a "nice-to-have" to a rallying cry. Meeting all of one's needs within a walking, biking or transit distance was suddenly a matter of life and death.
