The killer today was identified as Michael Zehef-Bibeau a high risk traveller who recently had his passport revoked.
The Globe and Mail reported:

Federal sources have identified the suspected shooter as Michael Zehef-Bibeau, a man in his early 30s who was known to Canadian authorities.

Sources told The Globe and Mail that he was recently designated a “high-risk traveller” by the Canadian government and that his passport had been seized – the same circumstances surrounding the case of Martin Rouleau-Couture, the Quebecker who was shot Monday after running down two Canadian Forces soldiers with his car.

The shooter had recently converted to Islam.

ISIS claims this was the shooter.

The soldier received CPR at Canadian War Memorial on Parliament Hill after he was shot. He later succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.

The soldier was a reservist from Hamilton.
The Globe and Mail reported:

The targets chosen are clearly of some political significance: The tomb of the unknown soldier, the seat of government and the city’s best-known place of commerce. The attacks come just two days after a Canadian soldier was killed in an apparently targeted hit-and-run incident in Quebec. Security officials had just raised the security threat level from low to medium, possibly related to the deployment of Canadian soldiers and planes to the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, but not in response to any specific threat…

…The soldier shot at the War Memorial was treated at Ottawa Civic hospital. He has not yet been named, but he is a reservist from Hamilton with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. The hospital said two other patients have been admitted and are in stable condition.

The victim was taken away by ambulance after the shooting.

TERROR ATTACK IN JERUSALEM! Eight Hurt As Car Rams Pedestrians – Baby Killed …Update: Americans Injured

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, October 22, 2014, 12:22 PM

Eight people were injured today and one baby was killed when a Palestinian driver rammed into pedestrians at a tram stop.
France 24 reported:

Israeli police shot and wounded the driver of a car who rammed a group of pedestrians in Jerusalem Wednesday, injuring nine, in a suspected “terror attack.”

Shortly before 6:00 pm (1500 GMT), a car hit pedestrians at the Ammunition Hill tram stop, which lies on the seamline between west and occupied east Jerusalem.

“A private car which arrived from the direction of the French Hill junction hit a number of pedestrians who were on the pavement and injured nine of them,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement.

“The driver apparently tried to flee on foot and was shot and wounded by a policeman from the Jerusalem district.”

It was not immediately clear how badly he was hurt, nor were there any details on his identity.

“Initial indications suggest this is a hit-and-run terror attack,” Samri said.

The driver had served time in Israeli prison.

UPDATE: Americans were injured in the attack:

Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat told Israel’s channel 1 that three of the victims were Americans.

Aussie Family of Redhead ISIS Fighter: “Ginger Jihadist a Stupid Idiot”

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, October 22, 2014, 11:33 AM

The Australian family of an ISIS teen terrorist who appeared in a recent propaganda video says he’s a “stupid idiot.”
ginger jihadist isis

Abdullah Elmir threatened Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Barack Obama in the video.
He told his family he was going on a fishing trip.

AU News reported:

In the video, 17-year-old Abdullah Elmir from Sydney made threats against Australia, America and Britain, warning the terrorists can’t be stopped.

It is believed to be the first time Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been explicitly mentioned by name in an Islamic State propaganda tape.

“To Obama, to Tony Abbott, I say this: These weapons that we have, these soldiers we will not stop fighting, we will not put down our weapons until we reach your lands.”

Elmir, who is also known as the ‘Ginger Jihadist’, threatens revenge against western leaders over airstrikes on Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq.

A relative of Elmir’s, who did not want to be named, has condemned the video.

“What a stupid idiot,” they told The Daily Telegraph.

“We never associated with him, that guy was brainwashed, I don’t know what these kids get into.”

Well said.


Shock Video: James O’Keefe Exposes Democratic Voter Fraud in Colorado

James O’Keefe Exposes Democratic Voter Fraud in Colorado

James O’Keefe sported a mustache for the undercover voter fraud video.
It worked.

Mark Udall supporters condone voter fraud in Colorado saying:
“That’s not even like lying or stealing.”

John Fund reported on the scandal at National Review:

Many liberals are adamant there is no threat of voter fraud that justifies efforts to improve the integrity of elections. “There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud,” tweeted Donna Brazile, former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, this week. “It’s a big ass lie.”

James O’Keefe, the guerilla filmmaker who brought down the ACORN voter-registration fraudsters in 2010 and forced the resignation of NPR executives, politely disagrees. Today, he is releasing some new undercover footage that raises disturbing questions about ballot integrity in Colorado, the site of fiercely contested races for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, and the governorship. When he raised the issue of filling out some of the unused ballots that are mailed to every household in the state this month, he was told by Meredith Hicks, the director of Work for Progress, a liberal group funded by Democratic Super PACS.: “That is not even like lying or something, if someone throws out a ballot, like if you want to fill it out you should do it.” She then brazenly offered O’Keefe, disguised as a middle-aged college instructor, a job with her group.

Shock Report: US Spends 30 Times More on Welfare Benefits Per Person Than Communist China

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, October 22, 2014, 9:23 AM

Guest post by Joe Hoft
communist america

When Deng Xiaoping took over China in the late 1970’s, China was a very poor country.  One of the first things that Deng did was to allow individuals to acquire and maintain property.  This capitalistic approach started one of the greatest economic transformations in world history.  More people in China have been lifted from poverty in a shorter span of time than ever before in human history. Half a billion Chinese citizens have risen out of poverty due to China’s economic swing to capitalist policies!

China still has its problems, but while the US is moving more and more towards a welfare state, China is moving more and more towards prosperity.  Deng (Xiaoping) rejected any possibility of importing the welfare state into China.  He insisted that the enhancement of welfare should be coordinated with the development of production.  Other Chinese leaders have reiterated Deng’s approach.  Today China’s welfare spending is low but it is increasing.

According to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of the People’s Republic of China, the total amount of outflows for China’s social programs in 2011 was $287 billion USD.  On the other side of the Pacific, the US spent somewhere between $1.7 and $2.1 trillion USD in 2011 on health, welfare and pension (old age) benefits.

When comparing the US numbers to China’s the results are very clear.  The US spent nearly seven times as much on social programs in 2011 than China.  According to the World Atlas as of 2010, China had a population of 1.3 billion people and the US had a population of 310 million. Based on these numbers, China had more than four times the number of people living within its borders than did the US in 2010.  The result of this comparison is to point out that the US conservatively paid 30 times more per capita to its citizens in the form of social benefits than did the socialist country China in 2011.

When we think of an example of a socialist country we probably think of China based upon its recent history with communism and when we think of a capitalist country the US is probably the first country that comes to mind.  However, if the definition of a socialist country is primarily based upon the amount of dollars spent on social programs, then the US is clearly the socialist country and China is the capitalist country.  Even if you do not agree with this, it is hard not to see that the line between what is a socialist country and what is a capitalistic country has become blurred.

Today communist China is becoming more capitalistic and the US is becoming more socialist.  As a result, socialist China is becoming more prosperous and the US is approaching a fiscal cliff.  Poverty is being reduced in China and poverty is on the rise in the US under Barack Obama.
