Al Qaeda has drawn a bullseye on a new American target: Subway trains
Al Qaeda is about to take on a new target — America’s trains — in an upcoming edition of its terror magazine, Inspire.
Issue No. 17 is headlined, “Train Derail Operations,” and will spell out ways to create rail disasters in a transportation system that lacks the stiff security procedures of airline travel.
It’s competing Sunni extremists group, the Islamic State, for more than a year has advocated using vehicles to mow down innocents. Its murderous followers have weaponized vehicles in Nice, Berlin and London, creating hundred of deaths and injuries.
Adding trains to the terrorist’s priority list would put at risk virtually every mode of transportation and placed added pressure on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) put out a report on Friday saying al Qaeda has teased the Inspirearticles with a trailer appearing on Telegram app channels operated by its fans.
“The trailer highlights that derailments are simple to design using easily available materials...

Texas Gov. Abbott Permanently BANS Taxpayer Funded Abortions
On Tuesday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a new law banning taxpayer funded abortions. “The new law will keep Texans from having to pay for elective abortions through their insurance plans,” reports Lifesitenews.com.
So proud of our governor and so proud to live in Texas!! I wasn't born here, but I got here as quickly as I could! (Old, tired line, but I just had to write it!)
I saw Gov. Abbott at Mass the other day. It's nice to know that he not only claims to be a Catholic, but actually goes on a weekly basis.
I'm glad he's our Governor!
All I can say is....Oh--My--Bob!!! ( http://lawnewz.com/uncategorized/ba...-to-let-undocumented-immigrants-practice-law/)
American Bar Association Wants to Let Undocumented Immigrants Practice Law
by Alberto Luperon | 6:09 pm, August 14th, 2017
On Monday, The American Bar Association’s House of Delegates passed a resolution demanding that Congress let undocumented immigrants practice law. The bar suggests that lawmakers should add this block of text, written by the ABA’s Law Student Division, to 8 U.S.C. 5 § 1621(d):
A state court vested with exclusive authority to regulate admission to the bar may, by rule, order, or other affirmative act, permit an undocumented alien seeking legal status to obtain a professional license to practice law in that jurisdiction.
This wouldn’t require state courts to license undocumented lawyers, but it would make it clear that the federal government won’t get in the way.
It will be a huge surprise if this move succeeds under the current administration. Republicans, who have a reputation for pushing stricter immigration laws than Democrats, maintain a (slight) majority in Congress. And then there’s the president. Donald Trump‘s policies don’t tend to favor the undocumented. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have boasted that arrest numbers for both criminal and non-criminal immigrants recently skyrocketed thanks to new executive orders.
A few states allow undocumented people to become lawyers. California started allowing some people to practice law thanks to a bill passed in 2013. Florida officials made José Godinez-Samperio, who was born in Mexico, a lawyer in 2014. New York man Cesar Vargas, also from south of the border, was admitted to the state bar in 2016.
Paranoid Kim Jong-un executing record numbers of North Koreans who no longer see him as a living GOD
DELUDED despot Kim Jong-un is executing growing numbers of North Koreans who no longer worship him as a living GOD.
His ruthless regime is persecuting thousands who dare to practise “other religions” within its borders, according to a shock new US government study.
The heartless crackdown – spearheaded by the paranoid Glorious Leader himself – is leading to imprisonment, torture and even execution by firing squad.
The news comes as it’s revealed more and more people are now turning to traditional religions like Buddhism and Christianity – rather than follow the so-called Cult of the Kims.
Among those are tens of thousands who have refused to sign up with the army.
The report said: “The number of conscientious objectors refusing military service for non religious reasons is also on the rise, according to local NGOs, lawyers, and religious groups.”
The US State Department released the annual report on global religious freedoms on Tuesday, with North Korea singled out for denying its people the “right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion”.
“The government continued to deal harshly with those who engaged in almost any religious practices through executions, torture, beatings and arrests”, the report states.
This is twenty minutes of some of the most intense, out-of-season weather I've seen and this is only the month of July. Lord, help and protect us.
RELATIVISM! Cardinal Ratzinger/Pope Benedict spoke for decades now that relativism is the greatest evil of our time.This video is trying to say this, but Pope Benedict rightly foretold of this moment in many of his past writings. It is all unfolding in our midst.
Cardinal Sarah tells us where it will lead to: God Bless both these holy men for speaking truth.

"Every Christian is Spiritually a Vendéan" -- Cardinal Sarah on the "Inner Rebellion" against the "Columns of Hell"
Cardinal Sarah at the Grave of Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort,
who was born in Bretagne, but died in the Vendée and is buried there.
(Paris) An extraordinary and prophetic sermon was given by Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Roman Congregation of Divine Worship and the Order of the Sacraments, in Saint Laurent sur Sèvres in the Vendée. The occasion was the opening of the 700th anniversary of the Diocese of Luçon.
The Catholic and Royalist population of this French landscape and its surroundings rose up from 1793 to 1796 in an insurrection against the anti-Christ and anti-royalist programs of the French Revolution. Their insurrection was cruelly suppressed by the revolutionaries in the name of "freedom, equality, brotherhood." The cruelty of the Revolutionary Government and its "hell columns," as the revolutionary groups were called, which precipitated the uprising in the Vendée, caused about 200,000 deaths by systematically burning entire villages and killing the population. Today, the extermination policy of the revolution is sometimes referred to as genocide (genocide) and "populicide" (popular murder).
The Cardinal will be in the Vendée until 15 August, the Feast of the Assumption of Mary.
The full text of the sermon:
Dear Brothers in the Lord!
We Christians need the spirit of the inhabitants of the Vendée! We need such an example! As we have to leave our sowing, our harvest, the furrows drawn by our plows, to fight - not for the defense of human interests, but for God!
Cardinal Sarah preached on the 12th of August in the Vendée
So who will stand up for God today? Who will dare to face the modern persecutors of the Church? Who will have the courage to rise, unarmed, only with the Rosary and the Sacred Heart, to meet the columns of death of our days, the relativism, the indifference and the contempt of God? Who will tell this world that the only truth worth dying for is freedom to believe?
Brothers, as once our brethren of the Vendée, today we have been called to confession, that is, to martyrdom!
Today, our Christian brothers in the Middle East, in Pakistan, in Africa, die for their faith, destroyed by the columns of the Islamic persecution. Therefore, you, people of France, you, people of the Vendée, when will you take up the peaceful weapons of prayer and love to defend your faith?
Dear friends, the blood of the martyrs flows in your veins. Be faithful to it!
We are all mentally sons of the martyrs of the Vendée! Also we Africans, we who have received many missionaries from the Vendée, who came to proclaim us Christ and to die with us! We must remain faithful to their heritage!
In this place the spirit of these martyrs surrounds us. What do they tell us? What are they going to give us?
First and foremost their courage! When it comes to God, no compromise is possible! The glory of God is not for discussion! This has to start with our personal life, our prayer life and our worship.
Brothers, it is time to rise up against the real existential atheism that stifles our lives. If we pray in the family, we place God in the first place! A family who prays is a family that lives! A Christian who does not pray, who leaves no space for God by silence and worship, dies!
From the example of the Vendée, we also learn the love of the priesthood. Because their "good shepherds" were threatened, they rose. Your children, when they see the faithful example of your ancestors, love their priests, love the priesthood!
You must ask: Have I also been called to be a priest in the succession of these good priests who have suffered martyrdom by the revolution? Would I have the courage to give life entirely to Christ and to my brethren?
The martyrs of the Vendée also teach us the forgiveness and mercy. Despite persecution and hatred, they have preserved in their hearts the concern for peace and forgiveness. Remember, commander Bonchamps 1) had given 5,000 prisoners given the freedom in 1793 a few minutes before he died. We should counteract hatred without resentment and without animosity. We are to be armed with the heart of Jesus, and like this we shall be full of meekness.
Finally, we also learn the generosity and selflessness of the martyrs of the Vendée.
Your ancestors did not themselves fight for their own interests. They had nothing to gain. Today they teach us true humanity. We live in a world dominated by the dictatorship of money, interests and wealth. The joy of selflessness is everywhere despised and mocked. Nevertheless, only the generous love and the unselfish surrender of one's own life can defeat the hatred of God and of men, the origin of every revolution. The inhabitants of the Vendée have taught us to resist all these revolutions. They have shown us that there is only one answer to the colonialists, the National Socialist extermination camps, the Communist Gulag, the Islamic barbarism: the complete self-giving of one's own life. Only love defeats the powers of death!
Today again, perhaps today more than ever before, the revolutionary ideologues want to destroy the natural place of self-giving, joyous generosity and love - I mean the family!
Gender ideology, contempt for fertility and loyalty are the new guiding principles of the revolution. The families have become many Vendées, which are to be exterminated. It is planned to systematically wipe them out as they once did against the Vendée.
These new revolutionaries are annoyed by the selflessness families with children. They laugh at the Christian families because they embody everything they hate. They are ready to send their columns of hell against Africa to put the family under pressure and impose on it sterilization, abortion and contraception.
Africa will resist like the Vendée!
Everywhere: Christian families must be a joyous avant-garde of an insurrection against this new dictatorship of egoism!
Now, in the heart of every family, every Christian, every person of good will has to raise an inner Vendée! Every Christian is mentally a Vendéan! Let us not allow the unselfish and generous devotion to be stifled in us. Let us also learn how the martyrs of the Vendée, to draw this gift from their source: the heart of Jesus. Let us ask that a powerful and joyful inner Vendée rise in the Church and in the world.
This is very very interesting (I know it has been mentioned earlier in the thread). Pope's envoy, Cardinal Parolin to visit Russia from 20th-24th August
Conchita of Garabandal is reported to have said "The Pope will go to Russia, to Moscow. A soon as the Sovereign Pontiff would return to the vatican, successive violent persecutions would break out here and there in Europe." (from Albert Brecht's book on Garabandal)
Beautiful, Fatima, thank you.

Here's a sign. Sunni and Shiite Islam playing house. Who would have thought?
The Iranian army chief today held talks with Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and military leaders in Ankara over defence issues, counter-terrorism and the Syrian conflict.
In what is the first visit to Turkey by an Iranian chief of staff since Iran’s 1979 revolution, Major General Mohammad Baqeri met his Turkish counterpart, General Hulusi Akar, as well as the Defence Minister Fikri Isik and Erdogan.
The officials also discussed education and defence ties, with both countries having agreed to the sharing of information, student exchanges and holding joint military training exercises.
The two sides also discussed the Kurdish referendum for independence due to be held in September in northern Iraq, with both vehemently opposing it and agreeing that it will only increase tensions.

Iran’s official news agency, IRNA, described the visit as unprecedented in the history of Iranian-Turkish relations.
There have been no such visits between the two countries for a long time, but considering regional developments and security issues – border security and the fight against terrorism – there was a need for such a visit
Baqeri told Iranian state television upon his arrival in Turkey on Tuesday.
In recent months, Turkey’s relations with its traditional allies – the US and EU countries – have been strained after the US equipped and armed Kurds in Syria and America, Germany and other European countries’ refusal to extradite suspects in the coup attempt which took place in July 2016.
Despite Turkey backing the opposition fighters in Syria, and Iran supporting regime President Bashar Al-Assad, the two have been able to agree to the establishment of four de-escalation zones, or safe zones, in Syria to quell the conflict in the country, and discussions are currently underway regarding the policing of the zones.
According to Baqeri, Erdogan will head a senior delegation in a visit to Iran in the near future with the goal of further improving bilateral economic, political and military ties
Not a Good Sign but one that an aware Christian should be aware of "These-Days"! Days of "SIGNS" out the Ying-Yang!
Sunni & Shia .. & whatever offshoot of Islam can agree on one thing ... cuttin' de throats of us Infidels!
GOD SAVE ALL HERE!!
