Man jumps White House fence; ‘dogs got him,’ says Secret Service

October 22, 2014

A man jumped the White House fence on Wednesday evening and was attacked by Secret Service dogs before being arrested, a Secret Service spokesman said.

"Dogs got him," spokesman Edwin Donovan said, referring to the intruder. He identified the intruder as Dominic Adesanya, 23, of Bel Air, Maryland, and said he was unarmed at the time of his arrest.

According to other reports Mr. Adesanya is black. And, according to CNN, his father claims he is paranoid and hears voices.

Video showed Secret Service agents surrounding the man on the north lawn of the White House, which was put on lockdown for about 90 minutes. The man punched one of the dogs that attacked him, as seen in the video.

Canada Shooting Being Blamed On Lack Of Gun Control

From the Atlantic magazine:

Canada’s Difficult Relationship With Long Guns

Though the country has no Second Amendment, the struggle to control firearms has been a fraught one.

By Adam Chandler | October 22, 2014

As more details emerge from Wednesday’s shooting attack in Ottawa’s Parliament Hill, one immediate and inevitable consequence will be a sharp renewal of discourse about gun control laws in Canada.

Despite being hailed for its incredibly low gun-casualty statistics, Canada also has a relatively high rate of gun ownership with nearly 31 firearms per 100 people…

What about the Muslim terrorist who drove down two Canadian soldiers on Monday, killing one of them? Does that prove that we need more car control?

Wednesday’s shooting is reported to have involved a long gun, the kind of weapon Adam Lanza used in the 2013 Newtown shooting.

ISIS Sympathizers Cheer Canadian Shooting On Twitter

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Islamic State Sympathizers Cheer Canada Shooting

By Adam Kredo | October 23, 2014

Prominent Islamic State (IS, ISIL, or ISIS) cheerleaders on Twitter celebrated the fatal shooting of a Canadian soldier Wednesday, hailing it as just retribution for the country’s decision to join the fight against the Middle Eastern terror group…

Did any of them say ‘Canada’s chickens are coming home to roost’?

Multiple Twitter users known for their pro-jihadist rhetoric celebrated the violent attack and warned that IS will wage war on any country that opposes it. “My sympathy goes out to all the victims by Canadian F16s. They themselves have brought the war home!” one user identifying himself as Abu Zarqawi tweeted shortly after the attack. The tweet, like others praising the murder, was retweeted many times by others.

Obama Doesn’t Know If Canadian Shooting Is Terrorism

From The Hill:

Obama: ‘We’re all shaken’ by Ottawa

By Justin Sink | October 22, 2014

President Obama said that the United States does not know whether Wednesday’s shooting near the Canadian parliament building was an act of terrorism…

Really? What else would it be? ‘Workplace violence’? A ‘man-caused disaster’?

The president said he would make sure his national security team was cooperating closely with its counterpart north of the border. It is “very important for us, I think, to recognize when it comes to dealing with terrorist activity — Canada and the United States have to be entirely in sync,” he said.

Which probably means the US will lean on the Canadians to downplay any Muslim terrorist aspects. After all, we can’t risk another backlash against the Muslim community.

Abdul Zehaf Lived A Privileged Life, Has Long Rap Sheet

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Muslim convert who shot dead Canadian soldier is the privately-educated son of country’s immigration chief

By Lydia Warren and James Nye and Chris Spargo | 23 October 2014

… Born in Quebec as Michael Joseph Hall and raised in Laval, just north of Montreal, the young man lived a life of private schools and homes, with a mother who was a high ranking federal employee.

Then, after years of run-ins with the law, he converted to Islam. A criminal court database shows 13 identified Quebec court records dating back to June 2001 in Montreal involving Zehaf-Bibeau.

He was charged in February 2004 for possession of marijuana and possession of PCP. He pleaded guilty to both charges in December 2004, serving one day in prison for marijuana possession and 60 days for PCP possession.

Zehaf’s Father Is Libyan Muslim Who Did Jihad In 2011

From Toronto’s Globe and Mail:

Suspected killer in Ottawa shootings had a disturbing side

By COLIN FREEZE and LES PERREAUX | October 23, 2014

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the slain 32-year-old suspected killer of a Canadian Forces soldier near Parliament Hill, was a labourer and small-time criminal – a man who had had a religious awakening and seemed to have become mentally unstable.

According to reports, he preferred to be called Abdul Zehaf.

Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was born in 1982 and was the son of Bulgasem Zehaf, a Quebec businessman who appears to have fought in 2011 in Libya —

So his father is a Libyan Muslim who recently engaged in jihad. But we’re supposed to believe the son just had a recent a "religious awakening" and became "mentally unstable" out of the blue?

Senator Coburn Issues Final Government Waste Book

From Fox News:

$10G to watch grass grow: Coburn report details worst examples of gov’t waste

October 22, 2014

As American taxpayers worried about the terror threat from the Islamic State, the crisis at the border and the economy, the U.S. government spent their money to give rabbits massages, to teach sea monkeys to synchronize swim and to literally watch grass grow.

These and other examples of wasteful government spending were detailed by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn in his annual “Wastebook,” his final edition since he is retiring early next year. “I have learned from these experiences that Washington will never change itself,” Coburn, R-Okla., said in a statement.

Which is why Sen. Coburn is throwing in the sponge.

The first example cited in the report is the millions spent on… paid administrative leave for troublesome employees.

Ferguson Protesters Shut Down ‘Zionist’ CNN Broadcast

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Ferguson Protesters Shut Down CNN Broadcast Because It’s ‘Zionist’

By Kirsten Hunter | October 21, 2014

Angry protesters in Ferguson, Mo., shut down CNN’s live broadcast Monday night after repeatedly heckling the reporter and cameraperson for working for an organization “run by AIPAC” and “Zionists.”

The heckling is audible in a video filmed by protester Bassem Masri, whose Twitter profile touts the Palestinian cause and reads “long live Palestine.”

You will be shocked to learn that Mr. Bassem Masri is a professional full-time protester. For the record, his Twitter profile also promotes the #hashtag #JSIL, which stands for the "Jewish state of Israel lies."

“You fucking lie about Ferguson; you lie about Occupy Wall Street; you lie about Palestine.

Brown Had Close-Range Wound To Hand, Pot In System

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Official autopsy shows Michael Brown had close-range wound to his hand, marijuana in system

By Christine Byers and Blythe Bernhard | October 21, 2014

ST. LOUIS COUNTY – The official autopsy on Michael Brown shows that he was shot in the hand at close range, according to an analysis of the findings by two experts not involved directly in the case. The accompanying toxicology report shows he had been using marijuana…

The St. Louis medical examiner, Dr. Michael Graham, who is not part of the official investigation, reviewed the autopsy report for the newspaper. He said Tuesday that it “does support that there was a significant altercation at the car.”

Graham said the examination indicated a shot traveled from the tip of Brown’s right thumb toward his wrist.

Pro-Dem Flyers Use Ferguson, Lynchings, Impeachment

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

Democratic turnout flyer: ‘If you want to prevent another Ferguson…’

By Jim Galloway and Daniel Malloy | October 21, 2014

… A reader has sent us this early-voting turnout mailer sent out by the Georgia Democratic party that focuses on the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Mo. It contains an interesting line that concedes the problem of low interest among black voters:

“If we want a better, safer future for our children, it’s up to us to vote for change. The choices may not always be perfect, but the cost of inaction is simply too great.” …

We caught up with Democratic Party Chairman DuBose Porter at an event in Milledgeville this evening. He said the situation in Ferguson easily applies to Georgia:

“Again, it’s about opportunity.

Networks ‘Black Out’ Bad Election News For Democrats

From the Media Research Center:

TV News Blacks Out This Year’s Bad Election News for Democrats

By Kyle Drennen & Rich Noyes | October 22, 2014

… [A] new Media Research Center study finds that, in contrast to their enthusiastic coverage of the 2006 midterms when Democrats made big gains, the Big Three broadcast evening newscasts are all but ignoring this year’s political contests…

Our analysts found that, when Democrats were feeling good about their election prospects eight years ago, the CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News, and ABC’s World News aired a combined 159 campaign stories… But during the same time period this year, those same newscasts have offered a paltry 25 stories… a six-to-one disparity.

Amazingly, since September 1 ABC’s newly-renamed World News Tonight has yet to feature a single mention of this year’s campaign… In contrast, eight years ago ABC’s World News aired 36 stories that discussed that year’s midterm campaign…

In 2006, CBS aired a total of 58 evening news stories that discussed the campaign, while NBC Nightly News aired 65 stories.

AP/Gfk Poll: Women Prefer GOP Over Dems 44% To 42%

From a seemingly resigned Associated Press:

AP-GfK Poll: Most expect GOP victory in November

By JENNIFER AGIESTA and EMILY SWANSON | October 21, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Two weeks before Election Day, most of the nation’s likely voters now expect the Republican Party to take control of the U.S. Senate, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. And by a growing margin, they say that’s the outcome they’d like to see.

But the survey suggests many will cringe when they cast those ballots. Most likely voters have a negative impression of the Republican Party, and 7 in 10 are dissatisfied by its leaders in Congress.

Whew. We were worried there for a minute.

The Democrats win few accolades themselves. Impressions of the party among likely voters have grown more negative in the past month.

Obama Considering Iraq Request For More US Advisers

From Reuters:

U.S. considering Iraqi request for more military advisers

By Steve Holland | October 20, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Senior U.S. officials are considering an Iraqi request for more American military advisers to help Iraqi security forces in their campaign against Islamic State militants, a senior Obama administration official said on Tuesday.

The request came up in meetings that deputy White House national security adviser Antony Blinken [sic] and other U.S. officials had with top Iraqi officials last week on a trip to Baghdad and other parts of the country…

Now, how saw this coming? Except everyone who was sitting up and paying attention.

The senior official, who briefed a small group of reporters on condition of anonymity, did not say how many more advisers were requested.

Virginia Hospital Turned Away Suspected Ebola Patient

From the Daily Caller:

Virginia Hospital Turned Away Suspected Ebola Patient

Derek Hunter | 10/21/2014

Last week a woman on a tour of the Pentagon in Arlington, Va., vomited as she disembarked the tour bus. She told her fellow tourists that she’d recently returned from western Africa, sparking fears of Ebola. As a precaution, her fellow passengers were quarantined for hours. It turned out to be a hoax — the woman lied about where she had traveled.

That’s bad enough. But it gets worse.

But the event revealed something about American hospitals’ preparedness for an Ebola case: they aren’t ready.

The woman was isolated in Inova Fairfax Hospital in northern Virginia, and later released. But the ambulance that picked her up didn’t originally head to Inova, it headed to the closest hospital, Virginia Hospital Center… [But] the hospital refused to admit her.

US To Funnel Ebola Country Travelers Through 5 Airports

From Reuters:

U.S. to funnel travelers from Ebola-hit region through five airports

By Jeffrey Dastin | October 22, 2014

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The United States ratcheted up its safeguards against Ebola on Tuesday, requiring travelers from three countries at the center of an epidemic in West Africa to fly into one of five major airports conducting enhanced screening for the virus.

Restrictions on passengers whose trips originated in Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea were announced by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and due to go into effect on Wednesday. The precautions stop well short of the travel ban sought by some U.S. lawmakers to prevent more Ebola cases in the United States.

Wait a minute? Don’t all of the arguments against a travel ban apply here?
