Thousands Attend Pro-Gun Rights Rally in Virginia

Thousands gathered today to protest against new laws that the democrats in Virginia are seeking to pass. The protests took place amid high security. However the protests were peaceful and many of those attending were wearing hunting jackets.

Protesters were checked for firearms, before entering the Richmond’s Capitol Square.

Virginia has long been a conservative state, but the democrats took control last year. The new laws they want to pass would restrict the magazine size, limit gun purchases to one per month, and would give judges power to seize weapons from a person deemed a risk.

When the enemy comes in like a flood

A sign of things to come?
Are you listening?
Do you have eyes to see?
How obvious does He need to make it?

If the one raised and sent to occupy 19 years ago to “stop greater destruction” loses position if the missions are not supported adequately to hold position, who’s fault is that?

The obedient one with unsustainable debt donated to the people to get in and hold position out of obedience to protect and raise up others believing if others saw 20 years of miracles they would understand the importance of providing enough support to keep the prophet in the zone?

Does anyone actually read or believe the bible? You remember the woman who provided the room for the prophet when he came into the city? SHE KNOWS GOD BETTER THAN MOST and why this is important !

Note: If he who was raised and sent and plowed and poured out his life for NY city was completely unaffected and indeed directed in an entirely new direction this day and didn’t even know this was happening, ie.. his life was completely unaffected by this, then this message is clearly not to him.

It has nothing to do with his obedience or laying down his life in obedience to Him, for others.

Massive water main break floods Upper West Side, delays subways

A water main break turned several streets in the Upper West Side near Lincoln Center into rivers early Monday, flooding the basements of several buildings and shutting down subway lines.

The FDNY received a call around 5 a.m. about a leaking fire hydrant at 1881 Broadway, but officials realized the problem was far more severe due to the volume of calls about the flooding, a fire official said at a press conference.

What firefighters discovered was that a 3-foot-wide main broke at Broadway at 63rd Street, spewing water across a wide swath — flooding parking garages, the 1, 2 and 3 subways and a number of basements, said Vincent Sapienza, commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection.

It took about three hours to finally stem the flow because shut-off valves are located in manholes, which were submerged, making them difficult to access, he said.

“We’re going to have Broadway southbound, the west side of Broadway closed down probably for a few days as we open up the street and make repairs,” Sapienza said. “While this water main is shut off, we’ll have water from other areas.”

He said residents might experience discolored water as a result of the “shaking of the pipes,” advising them to let the faucets run for a few minutes to help clear the harmless debris.

Workers will have to open up the pavement to reach the affected main and make repairs, he said.

“It will likely take a few days to actually have that work done and the street restored,” Sapienza said.

The flooding was still wreaking havoc in the area while the DEP worked to drain the water, which was six inches high in some spots. The water was flowing from east to west from Central Park West to Broadway.

Officials closed off part of Lincoln Center as well as the Fordham campus.  At one point the water was so overwhelming it turned Broadway into “a river” according to some passers-by on their way to work.

At the SP Parking garage at 62nd Street, several vehicles were submerged.

“My car … oh my God!” a distraught woman yelled as she ran down the ramp only to be stopped by attendants.

“Insurance will cover it,” one attendant said.

Commuters also were annoyed by lingering delays, particularly those who work in the area as whole sections of Broadway are being detoured.

“It’s crazy, you need a boat or something to get through. I didn’t end wear boots today and now we got all this … It’s dirty, too. The water’s brown. It better not be sewer water,” Michael Romero, 27, of The Bronx told The Post.

French PM tells Unions to Take “Responsibility” As Transport Strike Continues

As the crippling transport strike entered its 39th day the Prime Minister of France Macron called on the unions to take responsibility. The strike is centred on pension reforms. This came after the government removed the most contentious part of the legislation: raising the State Pension age from 62 to 64.

France has one of the lowest pension ages in the West, and some the most generous pensions in Europe. The government wants to introduce a uniform points based pension scheme. However unions say this will see pension payments reduced.

Unions are still calling for the reforms to be scraped completely. Saturday saw protesters  smashing windows, setting things on fire and throwing projectiles. The police responded by using tear gas.
