BREAKING: Video Captures The Moment Gunfire Breaks Out In Canada’s Parliament Bldg

shooting

This is a fast-developing story — details are still being sorted out and confirmed.

There has been an attack by one or more gunmen both outside and inside of Parliament in Ottawa, Canada.

According to the latest information from the CBC, one man has been shot dead inside Parliament, after a man with a rifle shot a soldier standing guard at the War Memorial in downtown Ottawa. Police and witnesses are reporting more shots at other locations surrounding Parliament Hill.

Alain Merisier, who works at the cafeteria in the Parliament building, told CBC News that said he saw a man in a car at the Centre Block with a long gun.

Witnesses said they then heard shots fired, and there was an unconfirmed report of a person injured outside the Library of Parliament.

Police confirmed the shooting at the War Memorial, and sealed off the area while the injured soldier was given emergency medical aid. He was later put into an ambulance.

This comes only hours after a serious incident in Quebec in which two Canadian soldiers were attacked by a man thought to have ISIS ties. You can see the Western Journalism post on this attack by clicking here.

In this new incident in Ottawa, a Globe reporter who was in the Parliament building when the attack took place captured an exchange of gunfire in the extraordinary footage you can see by clicking on the video above.

The National Post reports:

“Gunman at Parliament’s Centre Block has been shot and killed,” Conservative MP Bernard Trottier tweeted at 10:30 a.m. Tory MP Bob Zimmer also reported the same. Those reports are unconfirmed as police are still actively searching the area and say it is “not a secure scene” as there may be multiple shooters.

Two sources told The Canadian Press that Kevin Vickers, the sergeant-at-arms for the House of Commons and 29-year RCMP veteran, shot a gunman. Both CBC and CTV are reporting a single gunman has been confirmed dead.

Thestar.com updates the story with these details:

A gunman opened fire at the National War Memorial, wounding a soldier, then moved to nearby Parliament Hill and wounded a security guard before he was shot, reportedly by Parliament’s sergeant-at-arms.

Despite the shooting of the suspect, police and soldiers continued a chaotic hunt, leading to speculation there was more than one suspect.

The incident on Parliament Hill was an unprecedented breach of security, according to eyewitnesses.

BREAKING: Bombshell Ferguson Leak Is The Biggest Slapdown Yet For Race-Baiting Protestors

US-OUTRAGE-IN-MISSOURI-TOWN-AFTER-POLICE-SHOOTING-OF-18-YR-OLD-M

What will angry protestors and agitators in Ferguson, Missouri say now that the official autopsy on Michael Brown indicates that he was shot in the hand at close range? Plus, the accompanying toxicology report shows Brown had been using marijuana prior to being shot in a confrontation with police officer Darren Wilson.

And about that chant so many Brown defenders have adopted, “Hands up, don’t shoot”….

As the former Sheriff of St. Louis County predicted in a Tuesday post on Western Journalism, vital information about the fatal police shooting of Ferguson teen Michael Brown is being leaked, piece by piece.

And a key finding in the controversial case — a revelation that explodes the narrative of “gentle giant” Mike Brown gunned down in cold blood by a killer cop — has just been reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The official autopsy has reportedly been obtained by the Post-Dispatch, which had it analyzed by experts. That analysis provides the most detailed description yet of the wounds Brown sustained in the confrontation with the Ferguson police officer who has since been condemned as a villain in this case by street mobs calling for his indictment.

According to the newspaper report, the picture painted by the autopsy strongly suggests that officer Wilson’s version of events is accurate — that Michael Brown assaulted him and attempted to wrestle away his gun…and was moving toward the officer, not away from him, when he was shot.

A source with knowledge of Wilson’s statements said the officer had told investigators that Brown had struggled for Wilson’s pistol inside a police SUV and that Wilson had fired the gun twice, hitting Brown once in the hand. Later, Wilson fired additional shots that killed Brown and ignited a national controversy.

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.”

Another key finding by an expert as cited by the Post-Dispatch — Michael Brown did not have his hands raised as though surrendering to officer Wilson when he was shot on the street. This finding sharply contradicts claims by so-called witnesses to the shooting.

Dr. Judy Melinek, a forensic pathologist in San Francisco…said the autopsy did not support witnesses who have claimed Brown was shot while running away from Wilson, or with his hands up.

She said Brown was facing Wilson when Brown took a shot to the forehead, two shots to the chest and a shot to the upper right arm. The wound to the top of Brown’s head would indicate he was falling forward or in a lunging position toward the shooter; the shot was instantly fatal.

WATCH: Mark Levin Gives 7 Reasons To Vote Democrat…If You Like A Country ‘Gone To Hell’

Levin

Never one to mince words or tap dance around his true feelings, radio host Mark Levin appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Tuesday night with his distinctive look at the state of the nation and prospects for the midterms.

Levin and Hannity discussed the numerous Democrat candidates for the Senate who are trying desperately — some would say deceitfully — to distance themselves from the very unpopular President Obama.

By clicking on the video above, you can see why Levin says voters should mark their ballots for the Democrats pretending to run as moderates, rather than the big-government “radicals” they truly are.

What Just Happened In The NC Senate Race Brings Back That Awesome Image Of Eastwood

NC arrow

Unforgettable. That appearance by actor/director Clint Eastwood at the 2012 Republican National Convention in which he carried on the “empty chair” conversation with an invisible Barack Obama.

imgres

Well, it didn’t have quite the star-power impact of that moment in political history, but Tuesday night’s so-called Senate candidates debate in North Carolina was reminiscent of the Eastwood stunt.

Democrat Senator Kay Hagan skipped the televised debate, leaving only her opponent Thom Tillis to talk for an hour with a couple of interviewers. Basically, the Republican challenger enjoyed a sparring-free sixty minutes to explain his positions and criticize Hagan’s.

And yes, the organizers of this debate left Hagan’s empty chair on the set for all to see.

Senate-North Carolina-Debate

Predictably, the twitter-sphere exploded with snappy snark:

The Senate race is extremely tight in North Carolina, considered a key battleground state. The Real Clear Politics average of polls calls the contest a toss-up, with the incumbent, Hagan, holding on to a slim 2-point lead.

It will be interesting to see if the polling changes after Tuesday night’s no-show.

Who Are The Real Racists: Conservatives Or Liberals?

racists

To call someone a racist is a serious charge. A racist is someone who believes that one person is superior (or inferior) to another person simply based on their skin color. It’s a belief that is both foolish and stupid. But conservatives are accused by progressives of being racist on an almost daily basis. Is it a fair accusation? Or, is it just political posturing? And, if it is political posturing, what does it say about the people making the charge? Derryck Green of Project 21 has some provocative answers.
