3:00 am
twitter exploding in anger, one person saying i missed a homer. i hate you comcast. >> not smart at all. thank you so much for joining us. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> good morning everyone. today is thursday, the 23rd of october, 2014. i'm anna kooiman in for elisabeth hasselbeck. a fox news alert. a canadian soldier shot dead while on guard in the country's capital. [screaming] >> lift your hands. lift your head. >> the killer, a muslim convert also dead and as isis urges more of these attacks, the white house now increasing posture. what happened to raising the threat level? a live report straight ahead. >> another day, another breach at the white house caught on camera. another intruder scales that white house fence, jumps right over it. what happened next? we got details on the
3:01 am
latest security breach and the hero dog that took him down. >> they took a punch in the face first. eight million air bags at risk of exploding, so what do you do if you think yours is on the recall list? one word of advice, the government website cannot help you. shocker. mornings are better with friends. ♪ ♪ >> good morning everyone. let's get right to that fox news alert. home grown terror sets off chaos in canada's capital city. [gunshots] >> a gunman storming parliament shooting a canadian soldier to death at the national war memorial. now canada's prime minister calling it an act of terror. >> the gunman, a canadian who recently converted to islam, had a history of trouble with the law so how
3:02 am
did he slip under the radar. doug luzader is in our capital city, washington, d.c. what else do we know about this guy? >> reporter: good morning. we know the basics of what happened yesterday, how this guy made his way from the national war memorial across the street to the parliament apparently firing shots in both places. we don't have all the information as far as motivation is concerned. for intelligence agencies, that is going to be key. was this an act of terror as identified already by the canadian prime minister? some of the dots are being connected by an article in toronto's globe and mail number indicating that the gunman, zihab-bibeau, had been identified as a high-risk traveler. he indicated to a friend that he wanted to travel with libya, according to this article. he had brushes with the law. when they took a close look at his family, they found his mother had been a top immigration official there in canada. analysts we have talked to
3:03 am
say this is very little doubt that there is a connection here to terrorism. >> in my opinion, this is no doubt this is an act of terrorism. i think this is more than an act of home-grown terrorism. i think this was a sophisticated al qaeda or islamic state plot to exploit a security vulnerability. >> one would imagine that security folks here in the nation's capital, in washington, were certainly on heightened alert yesterday, nothing specific beyond the fact that security was apparently ramped up around arlington national cemetery and that may have to do with the fact that this attack began at the national war memorial there in canada. >> thank you very much. remember back after 9/11 whenever we would get a lot of intel -- we should point out that apparently there was a lot of chatter about something that was going to happen in canada for the five days leading up to what happened yesterday. in the old days we used to raise the threat level here in this country. now when the federal government -- because that
3:04 am
is so bush era. when they want to let us know they were taking things seriously they increased the posture. and the f.b.i. made it clear yesterday, they asked all u.s. offices to raise the alert posture to keep an eye out. >> you wonder why we're changing the name in this if we ought to be paying more attention? what do you think your ears will perk up to more? posture or terror threat level? this of course as isis is continuing to urge lone wolf style attacks. if you're unable to make it to syria and fight for us, create as much death and destruction and push your anti-western culture message there in your own backyard. >> they recognize this guy. they said we're keeping your passport, we're going to keep an eye on you, but clearly they weren't keeping an eye on him. all these guys out there that could potentially be radicalized that the f.b.i. does such a great job identifying, i don't know if we have to find a way to track them to understand
3:05 am
when they start going into motion rather than after attacks saying yeah he was on our list. we took his passport away last week. what does this mean for us? what does this mean for canada from this day forward? chawrks -- charles krauthammer weighs in. >> the appeal is so much that it could spark attacks around the world without lifting a finger, wowtd -- without organizing, and that's the new face of terror. >> that's interesting because as charles krauthammer brings up, islamic terrorists, they're rat -- they're radicalized, and in these cases you have two guys who had their passports taken back because the country recognized them as a threat and they had a willingness
3:06 am
and looking to go overseas and be radicalized. and there seems to be such a reluctance to say islamic terrorists, almost hard to see frustration north of the border. >> there is no islamic terrorism when you've got a group called the islamic state out there beheading people, american citizens, british citizens and saying what they're doing, they're doing in the name of islam, when you've got a man born and raised in quebec, running down canadian soldiers and then calling 911 and saying he's doing it in the name of allah. or this man today gunning down a canadian soldier and attempting to gunning down politicians. he came close to gunning down politicians who were meeting in caucus rooms just off the hallway he ran down and he was linked to islam, linked to mosques that have questions raised about them. >> in the last 18 hours or so on twitter some outfit -- it is suggested that it's linked to isis --
3:07 am
put up a picture of the shooter, and they said this is the guy who did it. but while he has been identified as the person in the picture, the group behind the particular twitter account has not been verified, so it has not been published. what is curious is why canada? it wasn't that long ago where the prime minister of canada, stephen harper, said we're going to stand with the united states, we're going to stand up to isis and going to try to bomb them over this. >> is this punishment for joining the coalition with the united states? last week we saw images of the lawmakers on caucus day in their chamber barricaded with chairs pushed up against the doors. another thing is that the security in that building had been questioned in the past. there's a lot of tourists that visit the area frequently. but is this canada's 9/11? obviously not in scope with the destruction and the number of deaths, but just the psyche of the people there, is something going
3:08 am
to have to change? >> you think about the man that lost his life yesterday, seemed like a great guy. he was there unarmed, he was in the ceremonial position. >> the guy on the left. >> screen left, i should say if you're looking at it. this is an honor evidently, obviously to mark the monument, what we call the tomb of the unknown soldier, a tribute. the gun is not slowed. therefore, he was a -- the gun is not loaded. there was he was a victim. he could not fight back. >> the shooter got out of a purple toyota, shot the man right there, corporal cirillo. after he shot him, the shooter raised his arms with a shotgun above his head like in triumph. then he ran up the hill into the main building outside the caucus rooms and that's where he ran
3:09 am
into 58-year-old sergeant at arms kevin vickers, a long time police officer, a member of the mounties. he had a gun on him. he realized what was happening and he shot the guy dead according to a number on twitter. there he is on one of his ceremonial days. >> thank goodness he had the where wherewithall to grab his gun. he had been serving with the mounty police. thank goodness he got his gun. >> younger brother called the mom and said john is okay. he shot him. you could see the gunman being shot down by the 58-year-old sergeant of arms in the hall. amazing situation. >> sergeant at arms office is right down the hall, heard all the ruckus and
3:10 am
went running toward it. this is video taken by cell phone camera. that's when things went -- people started shooting. >> it wasn't just one or two shots that the terrorist did. people reported it sounding like dynamite and that there were so many shots fired the smell of gun prow der was prevelant around the block. >> we're just lucky that the sergeant at arms was there and he had a gun outside the caucus room because if the gunman had gone inside with all those people, you know -- we don't know what could have happened. so that makes the argument about guns. >> in canada where they have much stricter gun control laws. ten minutes after the hour. ainsley earhardt up from your show to help our show. >> that's so sad. you all were showing pictures of the dad who died. it doesn't change the fact that the kid will grow up
3:11 am
without his dad. here's what's happening this morning. another brutal terror attack. caught on camera. a terrorist plows into a group of people outside a train station in jerusalem killing a three-month-old american baby and injuring eight others. the 20-year-old driver was later shot and killed by police as he was trying to run away. another day another breach at the white house, a man caught on camera fighting off secret service dogs after jumping the fence. the unarmed man made it 20 yards across the north lawn before the secret service arrested him. that jumper has been identified. he is from maryland. his father told a local news reporter his son has a history of mental illness and suffers from paranoia believing he is always under surveillance. charges are now pending. three million more vehicles are at risk of having a faulty air bag that could explode but the government air bag where you can look up your vin bag to see if your car is
3:12 am
on the list is not working. the 7.8 million vehicles affected includes certain models of toyota, honda, mazda, nissan and general motors. officials are urging everyone to check with their manufacturer or contact their dealership. kansas city royals take game two in the world series. yes. >> had had -- that's hammered to the left. it's gone! >> now it is good. the action starting in the sixth inning when the game was tied, the royals stepping up to the plate and bringing in five runs for a 7-2 win. the series is tied 1-1. game three heads to san francisco tomorrow aired on fox at 8 p.m. eastern time. those are your headlines. steve, congratulations. >> that's more like it. coming up, voters cap ballots for republicans but oddly the computer switches the republican vote to a
3:13 am
democrat vote. is it really just a glitch? >> these little girls may look cute but what a feminist group is making them say is sickening. >> my aspirations in life is to not be worrying about the shape of my [bleep], focusing on how i look. is that sexist? i don't give a [bleep]. smart sarah. seeking guidance. just like with your investments. that sets you apart. it does? it does. you're type e*. and seeking another perspective is what type e*s do. oh, and your next handhold... is there. you don't have to go it alone. e*trade gives you the support and guidance to make informed decisions. are you type e*?

3:16 am
3:17 am
a fox news alert right now, the f.b.i. on high alert as fox confirms a spike in the isis related chatter leading to yesterday's rampage in the canadian parliament. we have a former policy advisor to the house homeland security committee and an expert in this area. joshua, what should we take from what happened yesterday? we can't say you're surprised if you're a canadian investigator because he was on their radar as a convert, they took his passport away but what was missing that would have stopped this attack? >> good morning, brian. there are a bunch of things here that i think the canadians maybe now this morning have learned, and that really is if you're going to take somebody's passport, you really have to lock them down with surveillance. there were probably a bunch of activities that the shooter participated in prior to the shooting that would have led investigators yesterday to really question him and to possibly stop this. we have to understand that this isis threat, whereas
3:18 am
they're trying to possibly travel overseas, if they are not allowed to travel overseas, they will just turn their anger inward and we really have to clamp down on that. >> what lights up his background for an expert like you? the fact that he's had two drug offenses, been arrested before, converted to islam? what about his background lights up as a consistency with others that would do similar acts? >> i think one of the most disturbing things that i've heard with this case, when i heard the oklahoma city case recently is that the local imam turned his back on his con gre gant and -- congr egant and said we kicked him out. what i would ask the muslim community is where is the personal action? if they identified him
3:19 am
being more radical, more weird in their words, they had a duty to report that, a duty to talk to the law enforcement in order to prevent something like this. we can't just turn our back anymore. >> tell me if you think this is significant. a week after britain says we'll join you in the coalition they behead one of their hostages. now canada said we'll help you out in iraq in some way, shape or form, we have two acts in three days. is this a pattern that shows command of isis that is essentially giving the go sign in various countries? >> i think the central word coming out of isis for months has been to attack the west. so these -- the canadian participation in our fight against isis is not really the motivator here, although it's going to help push people, the self-radicalized people offense the edge and have them sort of step up to the plate and carry out these
3:20 am
attacks. but these attacks, these lone wolf style attacks are here to stay. >> joshua, i'll tell you what we see. the canadian embassy is around the block, penn station ten blocks away. immediately within an hour all our guys are on the streets, the nypd and national guard. what should we learn from that here? people watching mostly in america are saying what does it mean to us going to work today? >> you just need to remain vigilant. we should not be afraid. we should just be observant. put your cell phone down for a little bit and watch your surroundings. >> joshua katz, thanks so much. ten minutes before the bottom of the hour. a whistle-blower goes public about what's going on inside the v.a. >> i think this is where v.a. really just expects the public to be stupid and believe the lies that they're telling. >> guess what happened just eight minutes after that interview right here on
3:21 am
fox? that whistle-blower here next with the sickening details. who needs 50 cents if you want a toy? just climb in and take it yourself. that's what this kid did. seems happy but somewhat glum. glum. snowe (receptionist) gunderman group. gunderman group is growing. getting in a groove. growth is gratifying. goal is to grow. gotta get greater growth. i just talked to ups. they got expert advise, special discounts, new technologies. like smart pick ups. they'll only show up when you print a label and it's automatic. we save time and money. time? money? time and money. awesome. awesome! awesome! awesome! awesome!

how are you feeling? hope you're doing well. quick headlines from the campaign trail. you know what this say. chuck norris doesn't sleep. he holds air hostage. or does chuck norris tell g.p.s. where to go? you get the point. this morning he's hoping he can tell voters where to go. norris stumping in texas for the republican hopeful greg abbott. abbott taking on wendy davis. errors in a chicago voting booth causing republicans to vote for democrats. candidate jim moynihan went
3:25 am
to vote for himself but instead the machine selected his democratic opponent. election owe officials took the machine off service blaming if on a calibration error. >> a whistle-blower goes public about what is going on inside the veterans administration. >> i think this is where the v.a. expects the public to be stupid and believe the lies they're telling. >> shortly after that interview with neil cavuto on fox, that v.a. whistle-blower was asked via e-mail to attend an administrative meeting to sign a notice that he wouldn't talk in public anymore. when he declined the v.a. told him mr. davis, with all due respect, the notification sent to you was not an invitation to which you can decline. what did they want him to sign and why the threatening note? that whistle-blower, scott davis, appears on television again. good morning to you. he's in atlanta. >> good morning, steve.
3:26 am
>> so it was eight minutes after you left the air with neil cavuto that you got the e-mail where they said you've got to come talk to you. what were they trying to do? >> shut me up and distract me from the fact that 47,000 veterans died while waiting it get their applications processed and 890,000 veteran applications for health care have never been processed by the department of veterans affairs. >> what you did was was you said because i back in january already filed for whistle-blower protection status, i don't have to come. what they were doing was they were saying because this is an open investigation and now you're part of it, you can't go blabbing to neil cavuto or steve doocy or anybody else what's going on at the v.a.? >> exactly. they freaked out because i was on fox news. what they tried to do was say mr. davis, we're going
3:27 am
to have an investigation and you have to participate in our investigation. unfortunately, this came after i had already spoke with the inspector general's office, after i had already contacted the white house. by the way, the white house with the blower complaint got leaked and after i testified in congress. now they're telling me you can't talk to people anymore because we're having an investigation. >> what do you mean somebody at the white house leaked your whistle-blower complaint to your supervisor? that's against the law. >> it is against the law. unfortunately no one will step up to the plate at v.a. or the white house and admit who gave the whistle-blower complaint to my manager here in atlanta. i as a united states citizen have the right to petition the government including the office of the president about violations and mistreatment of our nation's veterans. unfortunately, that complaint which was given to white house deputy chief
3:28 am
of staff rob nabors made its way back it atlanta where my neighbor was able -- to retaliate against me. they changed my job description, changed my hours of operation and reporting structure. i worked with veterans, participated in outreach activities and tried to promote health care awareness about v.a. health programs. so they went back and said you can't talk to anyone. you're not going to communicate anymore. just like they wanted to shut me up for talking to neil cavuto, they wanted to shut me up from being able to talk to veterans. >> you're here today. it hit the fan a couple of months ago. people think we haven't heard anything, they must be fixing it. you're here today. are they fixing it? >> they're not. thank you for asking the questions. i have brochures from where v.a. tried to promote the affordable care act. instead of educating the veterans about the problem and the backlog with the
3:29 am
pending applications, they're not doing anything, they're just going to send a letter. they spent over $10 million promoting the afoacial care act -- affordable care act and yet they will spend no dollars educating veterans about how to deal with the problems with the enrollment system and the on-line application problem if your application for health care ends up in a pending backlog. here's the shocking part. the man who is over this area of v.a., over health administrative services at the v.a. got a temporary promotion during this entire scandal. and you would think the president knowing about this issue, the secretary of v.a. knowing about this issue they would ask phillip mckowsky for his resignation instead of a temporary promotion. >> you would think. thank you for your service
3:30 am
and telling us what is going on. it is 6:30 here in new york city. a fox news alert coming up. a disturbing attack on canada's government shows new weaknesses in the fight against terror. a congressman back from iraq tells us what this terrorist group is capable of. remember those illegal immigrants released from jail because the government wanted to save money. we were told they didn't have criminal records. now we know the truth and it is disturbing. we let loot a lot of bad people. ♪ ♪ i'm an idaho potato farmer and our big idaho potato truck is still missing. so my buddy here is going to help me find it. here we go. woo who, woah, woah, woah. it's out there somewhere spreading the word about america's favorite potatoes: heart healthy idaho potatoes and the american heart association's go red for women campaign. if you see it i hope you'll let us know.

canadian soldier to death at the national war memorial. now canada's prime minister calling it an act of terror. investigators scrambling to determine if the gunman had ak connell polices. >> -- had accomplices. >> the sergeant at arms fired the fatal shot that killed the gunman. >> nathan cirillo, the victim, this believed to be the last picture of him seen on screen left taken moments before the shooting and posted on twitter. >> this attack comes three days after another canadian soldier was killed in a hit-and-run inspired apparently by isis. >> the question this morning, are we doing enough to defeat the militants and are we safe here at home? with us is representative adam kinzinger, an iraq war veteran himself. >> you just got back from irbil? >> i was there two weeks ago. i left in 2009 as a pilot
3:35 am
in the military. we had won. we were in mop-up operation. iraq was basically together with some difficulties. when i went back two weeks ago, it is a mess. sad to see. >> do you see a connection between there was a hit on, two terror attacks in canada in the last three days? >> it's being attributed to isis. a few weeks after canada signed on with us, a coalition to defeat them over this. over time we're going to find out was there a direct link in terms of discussions. no doubt these two hits in canada were inspired by the success of isis. what you have is these people bent to jihaddism that are seeing what's going on in the middle east and saying i want to be part of that. maybe they're lone wolves, inspired by other reasons but they are saying that is successful, i can have my place in eternity if i join them here. >> you don't have to
3:36 am
contact us, just do it on your own. >> and they have been very open about targeting law enforcement and also members of our armed services. what do we need to be doing here at home? >> force protection has to be a priority, getting on to military bases and ensuring the gate guards are protected and people aren't able to get inside the gates. same with police. be on the defense edge. >> you're still active, you're a target. law enforcement is a target. you land in kurdistan. you mention when you left in fien we won. you feel -- when you left in 2009 we won. now you think we lost. what is the fight like against these guys? >> the kurds need heavy weapons. you have kurdish fighters that are fighting heroically. the kurds are trying to fight with in essence pickup trucks. they have to be able to
3:37 am
match armor to armor force to force. we don't have concern with the peshmerga turning against us. we didn't lose a single soldier in iraq in that area except maybe a pilot that ejected. >> remember in the old days when we used to raise the threat level. now the f.b.i. instead is raising the alert posture to remind people that a bulletin went out reminding people of vigilance. >> it's probably the right thing to do but i think what i keep getting from this is you have an administration that's unwilling to call this what it is which is jihaddism, terrorism and a threat that's continued from frankly before 9/11 but that was really brought to our attention -- >> we're not fighting. it doesn't seem like we have a strategy. but you're a pilot. we're dropping arms and i thought this was great, to the kurdish fighters in syria. it went to isis and we confirmed that yesterday. what's your take? >> it's unfortunate. i'd find out basically who planned that and find out
3:38 am
why something like that happened. airdrops are imperfect and we understand the vast majority of those weapons went to kurdish fighters and they are supposedly doing a better job. this should have been happening a long time ago. >> the way we're getting our arms to the kurds is by going through baghdad and it is getting held up this because they don't want to empower the kurds anymore. what is the problem with that? do you think we ought to change that? >> we ought to look at it. our government is afraid of defending baghdad. there are concerns about the kurdish reason seceding from iraq. >> there is a concern of our administration. the kurds are fighting. they have a link border with isis they not only have to defend, we're asking them to go on offense. >> iraq is saying you're not doing enough for us america. we don't know what you're doing but it's not working and it's seven weeks in. >> i think we need to be bombing a lot more targets,

stiffening the spine of the military. we can win this thing but at the rate we're going now it's going to take quite a long time if we're successful. >> congressman, thanks for dropping by. it is now 21 minutes before the top of the hour. ainsleyainsley earhardt is with us. >> one of the country's most elite colleges caught up in a massive grading scandal. a report just released reveals thousands of university of north carolina students, many of them athletes, taking fake classes to boost their dpraidz. -- grades. this has been going on for theeft 18 years. the so-called scam classes never meet and only require one final paper. at least nine university employees have been fired or are under dis minimum -- dis minimum narry review. >> fund abortions or else. the state reclassifying abortion as a basic health service under the

my name's louis, and i quit smoking with chantix. i had tried to do it in the past. i hadn't been successful. quitting smoking this time was different because i talked to my doctor and i... i got a prescription for chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it was important to me that chantix was a non-nicotine pill. the fact that it reduced the urge to smoke helped me
3:46 am
get that confidence that i could do it. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. stop chantix and call your, doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i am very proud. i love myself as a nonsmoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. this is a crazy story. remember back in the sequester time early 2013 and we heard i.c.e. was

going to release 2,200 illegals, but don't worry about them, they just had minor criminal records. as it turns out and even though jay carney said low-risk, noncriminal detainees, that simply was not true. they released a bunch of people with really bad records. >> "usa today" has come forward and said they're kidnappers, murderers, they're rapists. as if it wouldn't be bad enough even if there were petty crimes because these people end up on being frequent fliers, if you have one crime that leads to another, we talk about robberies, robberies gone wrong can lead to murders. but these guys we knew about. maybe we should instead of clearing out space in the jail for other murderers and rapists come in, we should have let them stay there. >> we were lied to. we were told these were petty criminals let out for crossing the wrong way or going through yellow lights, so now they're let out and we took their word on it that these people were not going to be a
3:48 am
threat to our society. now we find out almost a year later we were lied to. if you expect to build immigration reform, how do you expect to build trust across party lines when you can't get a straight answer from the white house to the i.c.e. to congress? >> i.c.e. released its statement the discretionary releases were of low levels. however those with significant criminal histories were by and large supreme court mandated releases. >> will the administration say today through josh earnest, i know canada will be the number one topic and should be, will they say we heard about this on news reports, that we were told something different, or will they say i didn't let you know this because we
3:49 am
would never let them out. it is a discrepancy between what we're told and what it actually is. >> >> meanwhile today in north carolina, probably in about ten minutes early voting starts. and so far they have found 154 ineligible voters. the question here is all these young people who were integrated into the system through president obama's dreamer act, apparently they have been tagged by the department of motor vehicles as legally present. and somehow wound up on the voting rolls. they can't vote. they know of 154 so far, but there are up to close to 10,000 names of people who can't vote. but it looks like they can in north carolina. >> in an all important battle ground state. 49 minute after the hour. coming up on "fox & friends," so many of you

3:55 am
proud of them, for making that right decision. >> doesn't appear bryan cranston, the show's star, who the doll was modeled after is in disagreement with you. in a lot of ways it seems like he's bag good sport. he says toys r us puts dolls on sabbatical. nicely played, florida mom. he's kind of going in jest with the whole thing. how do you feel like he's responding? >> i actually giggled when i saw that. actually both of his tweets. he's being very good natured about it and everything and i truly appreciate that. i don't feel like i'm being attacked or anything like that. i thought it was a very well-done response on both parts. >> to folks who would come to the support of toys r us say if you don't like that idea, don't take your kids on that aisle. do you like that argument?
3:56 am
>> no. just because it's a children's toy store. they base their values on children and doing the right thing and putting something that has fake, illegal drugs with it next to g.i. joe or mario brothers just morally isn't right. this has nothing to do with people taking their kids in there and buying that or anything. this has to do with the placement of that doll. >> yeah. you wouldn't have adult fantasy toys on a store at toys r us. it seems like they made the right call putting them on indefinite sabbatical. thanks for your time today. >> thank you very much. >> thanks for standing up for a lot of parents who agree with you. coming up on "fox & friends," can the united states learn a lesson from the hero who took down the shooter in canada? judge napolitano on the case and joins us at the top of the hour

3:59 am
could i come up with something better. my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.
4:00 am
hello. good morning, today is thursday, the october 23, 2014. i'm anna kooiman in for elisabeth. terror in canada. brand-new information this morning about the muslim convert who shot a canadian soldier dead, as we learn about the hero credited with taking him out and the lessons the united states could learn from him. caught on camera, another white house fence jumper. this time trying gets attacked by security dogs and security went up to them. who is he and how did he get over that nine-foot fence? sick em. sorry, boss, can't come to work today. >> cold and clammy.
4:01 am
>> believe it or not, that excuse actually works and there are many, many more just like them. why? because we want to tell you how things work on this thursday when mornings are always better with friends. we start this hour with a fox news alert. home-grown terror sets off chaos in canada's capitol city. >> the government is storming the parliament building shooting a canadian soldier to death first at the war memorial across the street. the prime anyone ster calling it terror. police scrambling to find any possible accomplice. >> the gunman, a canadian who converted to islam, had a history of trouble with the law. how did he slip under the radar?
4:02 am
doug luzader is live in washington. what else do we know about this guy? >> reporter: we're kind of moving beyond the basics of what happened with the shooting itself and trying to figure out the mystery behind the gunman. who is he? why did he do this? we've seen recent reports now from toronto's globe and mail newspaper that fill in some of the blanks. they say he was well-known to canadian officials, had a long rap sheet, a recent convert to islam. he was also on a traveler watch list. a friend of his apparently told the paper that he wanted to travel to libya. interestingly enough, his mother was a high level canadian immigration official. beyond that, we know there have been increased intelligence chatter overheard about possible isis attacks on canadian targets. now, another open question here as this investigation moves forward, is there a connection to another attack in canada just days ago in quebec where another canadian soldier was struck and killed by a vehicle driven by a man who was later shot and killed?
4:03 am
he was described as being inspired by isis. >> what we don't know is the actual operation. are the two cases from canada, the cadet case and the ottawa case, are they connected in is there a middle man between isis and these people or are they on their own? we don't know. >> reporter: we don't know that yet. but another factor to consider as intelligence officials go down all the possible avenues, canada recently agreed to join the united states in the air campaign against isis. back to you guys. >> all right. thank you. >> now we understand what happened in canada we certainly can relate to and feel for them and understand what they're going through, we wonder how we'll react as a country because we went on high alert. all you have to do is walk around a major city, especially around here, and you see fully armed national guard, nypd and special units out on major situations like grand central,
4:04 am
penn station. that's how we're reacting. are we continuing to raise the threat level in this country? have we gone to a new system. >> we apparently is gone to a new system. instead of calling it a threat level, we're calling it increasing the posture. what do you think will make americans stand up to isis and notice any signals of people in their community doing things, i don't think changing the posture is as good as changing the threat level. >> in addition, the f.b.i. asking all u.s. offices to raise the alert posture. norad is increasing the alert posture as well to be on the lookout. let's face it, is it a coincidence that just a couple of weeks ago, can did decided to join to join us in our fight against isis? congressman adam hencinger, on the couch with us, said no coincidence. listen. >> no doubt these two hits in canada were inspired by the success of isis.
4:05 am
what you have is these people bent to jihaddism, see what's going on in the middle east and say, i want to be part of that. maybe they're lone wolves, maybe they didn't have friends, maybe inspired by other reasons. but they say that's successful. i can have my play in eternity if i join them here. isis is open about hey f you know how to shoot a gun, shoot a gun. >> that's right. this morning we're learning more about the hero who took down the gunman. >> 58, kevin victor, sergeant at arms at the canadian parliament. he came there four years ago, credited with firing the fatal shot at the gunman and preventing what could have been a national catastrophe and lawmakers were in the eye of his target. >> let's bring in judge andrew napolitano. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> what can we learn from this? it is a soft target, as many would say, because the security on that building is not as high as many would like. >> there is a number of things we can learn. the most principle of which is that oftentimes the hero comes
4:06 am
from among us, that the hero has to have the means by which to behave as a hero. this particular fellow is a retired royal canadian mounted olympics the roughly equivalent to our f.b.i he's licensed to carry a gun. he knows how to use it. thank god there was and had the gun. >> he was trained and up to act. >> correct. but if he had not been there or if he had not had that gun, gun control laws in canada are as day conian as they have been in washington, d.c. or chicago. the government thinks people should not be able to arm themselves. in my view that's the lesson. isis is a threat in many ways. this in some respect social security a very, very devious way because it's the loner. it's the lone wolf. we don't know if this person came from an organization or did this on his own. this person does not cause a big commotion. it's not an army march eag city. it's one guy getting out of a car and starting to shoot. what is the best deterrent to that? an armed citizenry.
4:07 am
people able to protect themselves. we have a second amendment in this country. they do not have the equivalent of that in canada. >> you were on this program a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about the guy, the ce oh, of the guy in oklahoma who there was a rampage there, there was a crazy guy with a gun, killing people. but the ceo stepped up. he had a gun, and he took him out. >> yes, because oklahoma is a state, unlike our home state of new jersey, where people who can demonstrate proficiency in carrying a gun can carry it in the public, in the workplace and home. again an instance where had that person not been there, it would have been a lot more bloodshed and more innocent loss of life. i can't tell the canadian parliament how to protect themselves. there may have been mechanisms in place that didn't work. i can say that the public should be able to protect itself. >> the guard who was shot in cold blood his gun was not loaded. >> correct. that's ceremony gun. and that is really, brian,
4:08 am
insane. insane for a cop or a soldier to carry a gun that doesn't work! that looks like a gun, but because there is no firing pin, it's useless as a gun! ext to him whong duck. could have shot back and stopped this character before he attacked the parliament. >> great point. >> true. i guess sometimes when they're doing drill, they don't want it to accidentally go off. that's one of the reasons why the gun is ceremonial. >> very difficult for that weapon to go off accidentally. >> i want to get your thought on this. what about surveillance, because can did did a good job pulling the two individual passports monday and wednesday, so they can't travel out to join isis. >> apparently this guy had interaction with the government a couple of weeks ago. it was some sort of immigration issue. it wasn't an issue involving any criminal activity.
4:09 am
again, i can't tell the canadian government how to do things, but they have yet to connect the dots and to establish profiles of people who might -- >> they got to track them. at least track them. >> i got a feeling a lot of people in canada are wake up saying, you know what? maybe we should do more. >> they should have the rye -- look, it's a natural human right, a right to self-defense. in this country, that country is manifest by you don't break the law, you can get a gun. they should have the same right in canada. they need more people like the hero we were just talking about. >> judge, thank you very much. >> you're welcome. if you're looking for ainsley earhart after the show, normally you would see her at a bar, but now we've asked her to stick around for our show to keep us up to date. >> here is what's happening in the headlines. he jumped the fence at the white
4:10 am
house and the dogs got him. this morning we are learning brand-new details about this guy. 23-year-old dominic from maryland. he made it across the north lawn before the dogs took him down. two of those dogs taken to a vet because he kicked them. they are going to be okay. he suffers from paranoia, believing he's being watched. a brutal terrorist attack caught on camera and a car plows into a group of people and killed an american baby and injured eight others. he was later shot and killed by police. the innocent victim was born to americans with dual citizenship. they were bringing her to jerusalem for the very first time. more tension in ferguson, missouri overnight as police release new details in the deadly shooting of michael brown. hundreds of protesters marching in front of the police station. two people arrested for throwing
4:11 am
water bottles at officers. the official autopsy revealing brown was shot in the hand at close range, supporting officer wilson's claim of self-defense. take a close look at your screen. police say the man on the left looks a lot like eric frien, the accused cop killer who has been hiding in the woods since last month. they do look a lot alike. james tully says cops have stopped him more than 20 times on his way to work, asking him where he's going. tully says it's happening so frequently, as many as seven times in one day, that it's just becoming a routine part of his life. those are your headline. >> they say we all have a twin out there. but how unfortunate. >> i promise i'm not an accused cop killer. >> all right. thank you very much. 7:11 in new york. coming up, so many of you e-mailed us yesterday about this story. the convicted cop killer who was allowed to speak at a college commencement silenced for good. that police officer's widow is here next.

4:17 am
he murdered my husband with premeditation and malice so many years ago, yet he still has a voice. >> he does. now, the people of pennsylvania were outraged by him being allowed to do this. but there wasn't anything to stop it. so the other day the governor of pennsylvania signed a bill. tell us what it's called and what it's going to do. >> it's called the revictimmization 508 act. what will happen is if there are murderers or rapists in a want to try to speak out publicly, the survivors will be able to try to stop it. and by doing that, it will go before a judge and the judge will have the opportunity to say no. these murderers will not be able to speak publicly anymore. >> so going forward -- >> it's a great bill. >> sure. if this guy gets another invitation to go talk to some people, it would be taken before a judge and a judge would either say yes or no, right?
4:18 am
>> yes, that's correct. >> okay. >> and it's a step forward for survivors of crimes that have to endure the heartache over and over again. >> the aclu in pennsylvania sayç this: essentially any action by an inmate or former offender that could cause mental anguish could be banned by a judge. that can't pass constitutional muster under the first amendment. they say it's too broad, wouldn't stand up. what do you say to that? >> i think it will stand up, steve. and he's still able to have phone access. he's still able to talk to his family and have access to personal friends and spiritual advisors. he will not be able to publicly speak where he can harm and emotionally traumatize the faulkner family and i. so it will stand up. >> you know, his supporters say he's just a victim. he's a victim of a racist

used indoctrinated by the jihaddists, al-qaeda or isis in this case. also another report citing an article in the washington times mentioned the possibility that his father went to libya actually and fought with the uprising against gadaffi. so these are two trails you are looking at at this point in time. radicalization may be older than what we think. >> why canada? >> why canada? canada is on the list of jihadi targets because number one, it is part of our alliance, nato. but more importantly, because it's part of the air campaign in iraq and in syria. that's not the first time canada is targeted. unfortunately, this is the first bloody time it was hit. but before that, there was a conspiracy to kill also politicians, including the prime minister. >> i believe it was on monday there was another guy from canada who apparently self-radicalized himself as
4:35 am
well. he ran down a couple of military members. one of those guys was killed in that particular incident. so that's the first of these two. do you see a connection other than people who coins dentsally -- coincidentally are in canada and trying to do something stupid for isis? >> no, it's not that coins dentsal because -- coincidental because they both targeted elements of the military. there is a standing order, standing instruction by isis for their supporters and sympathizers to hit the military. not just in canada, including the united states. >> how many more like him? for example, is it possible for law enforcement -- i'm not sure in canada, but here -- to see a guy like this, see him radicalized, understand he's a danger, take his passport, but not follow him. how important is it to following and tracking people we're suspicious of? >> very big problem and i begin o realize why. number one, the pool of individuals who are either
4:36 am
self-radicalizing or radicalizing and acting alone are two different things. it's very large. we're talking about hundreds if not thousands of people who follow the same process. now, those who decide to act, either to travel to the middle east or to act here, it's a much smaller pool. even that pool, very difficult to have 24/7 people following these individuals. >> to piggy back off of brian's question, what do local imams need to do in connection with local law enforcement? do they need to not turn a blind eye to people worshiping? >> some law enforcement here in canada think the imams can do a lot. they can. their message, their narrative. those with can do more would be moderates. we need to engage them. there are many people in the united states and canada who are against the jihaddists and are part of these communities. we have ignored them. instead we've partnered with islamist organization.
4:37 am
you know about that. we need to reverse that policy and work with the active moderates against the jihaddists. >> thank you very much for joining us, your expertise. >> thank you for having me. all right. ainsley, we have other news happening. >> thank you. errors in chicago voting booths are causing republicans to vote for democrats. republican state representative candidate moynahan went to vote for himself, but instead, the touch screen selected his democratic opponent. he did alert the election officials who say that they took the machine out of service. they blamed it on a calibration error and said that his votes are not going to count. it was touted as a weight loss miracle, drop pounds fast without a diet or exercise. but now the two leading researchers behind the green coffee bean extract say it was all bogus. even dr. oz bought into those benefits. the scientists who were paid to write the study now admitting that they cannot prove that it works. they're now pulling the publickished paper.

one of the country's most elite colleges caught up in a massive grading scandal. a report just released reveals that thousands of university of north carolina students, many of them athletes, took fake classes to boost their grade. it's been going on for 18 years. the so-called scam classes never met and only required one final paper. at least nine university employees have been fired or are under disciplinary review. if you've ever called in sick to work when you're feeling fine, you are not alone. a new survey reveals 28% of workers admit to faking sick last year. so what is your go-to excuse? hopefully it's better than y'all's. that's terrible. >> we do. somebody says that this is up with of the best. my plastic surgery needs tweaking to get it just right. >> another one is i'm stuck in the blood pressure machine at the grocery store. >> send help.

dillard and derek dillard. good morning both of you. >> thank you. >> so tell us how you met. >> well, i met derek while he was in nepal for two years and so my dad was friends with him and talked with him every week. we started skyping and it was love at first skype. >> one of the things that pastors talk about sometimes with young people and dating is women have a hard time finding a man who is going to respect their boundaries, respect their bodies. what advice do you have for girls? >> i think derek is really, exactly what year saying. he's a man of character. that's something that i really wanted and wanted to evaluate first. and you want to marry somebody for what they're going to say if who they are in their heart and true character. i asked a lot of questions. i think that's really important is up front. you can have fun, you can go on

5:01 am
canada's capitol city. >> a gunman shooting a soldier to death at the national war memorial. now canada's prime minister does not hesitate. he calls it an act of terror. >> the gunman, a canadian who converted to islam, had a history of trouble with the law. so how did he slip under the radar, or was he on the radar? doug luzader has been tracking this all morning and joins us. doug? >> reporter: good morning. those are the questions. we still don't know a whole lot about this guy. but a picture is beginning to emerge. he may fit with the scenario that counters terrorism officials here in this country have been talking about for some time. the idea of a home-grown terrorist who was inspired by a group overseas. here is what we know so far about him and a lot of this comes from toronto's globe and mail newspaper. they say there were signs that he was mentally unstable. a friend says he may have had
5:02 am
plans to travel to libya. he was apparently on a traveler watch list there at canada. his mother was a canadian immigration official. what we need to know is whether there was a connection to an outside group like isis, which has been talking about carrying out attacks in both canada and the united states. >> there has been an increase in chatter over the last week because of the fact that isis has made it clear, going back over several weeks, they want to attack military personnel and their families and they're calling for attacks in the homeland and also in canada. >> reporter: one thing the counterterrorism folks are definitely looking into is whether this connection between the parliament attack yesterday and a vehicle attack in quebec a few days ago when a man described as being inspired by isis struck and killed another canadian soldier. he was later shot and killed. security folks here have got to be taking a look today own procedures and protocols in
5:03 am
light of what happened yesterday in canada. we know security was ramped up at arlington national cemetery at the tomb of the unknown. that is probably due largely to the fact that the first scene of this attack yesterday was at that country's national war memorial. anna, steve and brian, back to you guys. >> doug, we thank you very much. also it was amped up at the canadian consulate, which is exactly one block from where we are sitting right here. that building, you can see there at 49th and 6th avenue. >> it looked like the green zone in baghdad a little yesterday with the national guardsmen and the nypd has their own special enforcement unit in times like this. meanwhile, when the-@ftlib britd their -- one of their men beheaded and prior to that they changed their threat level. when the canadians realized it was a lot of chatter about a possible terrorist attack, they raised their threat level. kind of interesting that this administration, i wasn't even cognizant, we don't raise our threat level anymore. >> we don't have one. we have a posture.
5:04 am
the f.b.i. has asked all u.s. offices to raise the alert posture because we don't do threat levels because that's what the bush administration did. that's so analog for this administration. the reason is because they're reminding people of the threats from isis given the fact that we've got that coalition and we're trying to take them out. also norad has gone ahead and they have increased the alert posture as a number of planes are being readied to respond. >> they wouldn't let him out of the country. but what did he do? he turned his anger inward. so that's something that can did needs to worry about, america needs to worry about, are these lone wolf attacks. we had walid phares on the program. >> the pool of individuals is either self readycallizing or acting alone.
5:05 am
they're two different things. it's very large. we're talking about hundreds if not thousands of people who follow the same process. now, those who decide to act, either to travel to the middle east or to act here, it's a much smaller pool. even that pool is very difficult to have 24/7 people following these individuals and there is a standing order, standing instruction by isis for their supporters and sympathizers around the world to hit the military not just in canada, including the united states as well. >> the times when we had to worry about the mohammed atta coming here are essentially over. it's the people that are here that get radicalized, maybe in this case here and there. think about it, remember the new jersey lacrosse player, the kid shot to death by a muslim extremist who wanted to get even for the death that he thought we were part of in iraq. remember what happened in oklahoma? that was a man that screamed islamic phrases after the murder of a co-worker. so again, you could say these
5:06 am
same attacks are happening here. we just don't seem to acknowledge it. >> and when you brought up the murder in oklahoma, remember, that was stopped by the ceo of that company who was packing heat. he had a gun. thankfully yesterday there was somebody there at the parliament who had a gun. i'm talk being the sergeant of arms, 58-year-old guy, kevin vickers. he shot the attacker just outside the caucus room. there he is right there. his son is a police officer. he was a mountie for years and canada is famous for gun control. but he had a gun because the other people -- there he is carrying that ceremonial item -- can did is famous for their gun control and the people outside had guns that weren't loaded. >> a strong reminder for many of our viewers, they're e-mailing us and hitting us up on social media saying stay away from our gun rights.
5:07 am
let us protect ourselves because of what we saw there from sergeant vickers. let's take a look at the fallen hero. screen left. quite possibly could be the last picture of him taken. many say he was a sitting duck. the gun that he was holding there, unloaded. just ceremonial. >> he was an animal lover, a father. he had a young son when he wasn't serving with the argyle highlanders with guard duty. he was also a personal trainer and he was a bouncer apparently and he, according to all reports i have read this morning out of canada, was a great guy. >> yeah. and we mentioned the sergeant at arms, kevin vickers, he's 58 years old. got a law enforcement background. but still, you would expect a navy seal to act like this. at 58 years old, when is the last time he shot a gun and took out an assailant. as a mountie, you wonder how
5:08 am
many times he really came up against this, regardless, the way he acted in the line of fire with split second decision in a crowded area full of people was unbelievable. >> people with no guns. >> right. thank goodness he did. the other thing that people talked about is the security at the parliament building is not what it should be. and will this event, these with events monday and wednesday and knowing that isis is targeting law enforcement and military and people associated with government, will this be their 9-11? will they start to ramp up security and have second thoughts about their gun rights as well? >> i'm sure they're thinking about it right now. it's 8 minutes after the top of the hour on this very busy thursday. ainsley has the headlines. >> another terrorist attack, this one in jerusalem. it was all caught on camera. hamas terrorist plows into a group of people outside a train station, injuring eight people and leaving a three-month-old american baby dead. the 20-year-old driver was later
5:09 am
shot and killed by police. another man tries to storm the white house, but not before the dogs got him. this morning we are learning brand-new details about this guy. he's 23. he's from maryland. made it across the north lawn, kicking two secret service dogs. those dogs, hurricane and jordan, taken to a vet and have been cleared for duty. he suffers from paranoia, believing he's always being watched. he's charged with three felonies. new reports this morning, three of president obama's top aides might be jumping ship. according to politico, dan pheiffer, communications director jen palmieri and ben rhodes, all eyeing an exit in the coming weeks. why? the white house chief of staff reportedly wants more consistency heading into the president's final two years in office. staffers who aren't all in should consider making their way out. don't understatement a kid who just wants a toy.
5:10 am
look at this video. he wanted a toy so badly, he climbed inside the claw machine and he got stuck. look at that face. 18-month-old climbed in when his grandmother looked away for a few seconds. the fire department did get him out and his plan worked, however. in the end, because he walked away with one of those toys as a souvenir. those are your headlines. >> he had plenty of toys to play with while he waited to get out. >> and it's cheaper than feeding the machine quarters. >> ted backs me up, he says he's never won at the claw game either. spent his whole childhood trying to win one stuffed animal. the claw doesn't hold. am i right, ted? i quoted you exactly. over $100. could have been in his college savings account. >> how how that would multiply. >> all right. coming up on this thursday, air bags exploding like ieds.
5:11 am
that's right. and the government's plan to warn you is not working. we're going to tell you what you need to know if you have one of these vehicles. and they may look cute, but their message anything but. >> should not be worried about the shape of my [ bleep ]. stop picking on how i look. [ bleep ] [ bleep ]. i don't give a [ bleep ] >> where are their parents? what a feminist group is making these children say just to get attention for their causes. pathetic. >> the parents probably brought them to the audition before larry instantly transferred money from his bank of america savings account to his merrill edge retirement account. before he opened his first hot chocolate stand calling winter an "underserved season". and before he quit his friend's leaf-raking business for "not offering a 401k."
5:12 am
larry knew the importance of preparing for retirement. that's why when the time came he counted on merrill edge to streamline his investing and help him plan for the road ahead. that's the power of streamlined connections. that's merrill edge and bank of america. people who know me, to this day they say,tix. "i never thought you would quit." you know, i really didn't either but chantix helped me do it. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it gave me the power to overcome the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental
5:13 am
health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm a nonsmoker; that feels amazing. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
5:14 am
5:15 am
it is the second deadly assault on a canadian soldier this week. our lead story is this, that a gunman fired on ottawa's parliament yesterday. on monday in quebec, it was a hit and run attack, both incidents committed by muslim converts. should this serve as a wake-up call to canada and america and could the president's failure to recognize terror as terror put us at risk?
5:16 am
peter johnson, jr. joins us live. >> we need to take the wake-up call and say don't call back in five minutes. the president, unfortunately, and our friends out there this morning, has not recognized terror as terror, benghazi, fort hood, the little rock, 2009 massacre of our american soldiers here in american soil nolan and the beheading as you were talking about before. so the first step is recognition of the problem. we need to be strong and powerful enough to say yeah, there is a problem and we're going to contain it here in the united states. the second issue is how do we recruit? i say how do we recruit? i'm talk being three r's, recognize, recruit and repel. how does the president, how does the attorney general holder go into the muslim community in the united states and say, we need your help. how does he sit down with imams and sit down with moderate muslims in this country who i believe are the majority and say, we need your help. we need to you turn in people who are islamic terrorists.
5:17 am
>> isn't it just that simple? >> it is that simple. and it hasn't been done. it needs to be done by the f.b.i. and by the attorney general and by the president of the united states calling upon all americans of all faiths to say, we need to say if you know of someone that's going to do something badder you think they're going to do something bad to this country, turn them in. and then the third issue is repelling the threat here at home. you talked about this again this morning. do americans themselves have to repel the threat in terms of lawful hand gun owner, like alton nolan and we see the sergeant at arms. the canadian parliament that, is not a paramilitary or police role. that is a political role. sergeant in arms doesn't need to discipline members of parliament. so here we have this 58-year-old veteran of the mounties responding. >> he was the last line of defense. >> so f us to say, well, this is canada, we're protected.
5:18 am
they don't have enough guns, it can happen here and it can happen here again and it's happened here. but the problem is, we haven't recognized it and called it as such. so today the president needs to recognize this as terrorism. he didn't recognize it yesterday, although the canadian prime minister did, and the world did, they could see it on the fox site or our television could say, what do you think it is? this is a radicalized islamic terrorist. >> as we're learning more about what happened yesterday in canada, apparently, according to people in the intel community, there was increased chatter about a day of reckoning in canada for five days leading up to the shooting yesterday. >> yeah. we'll talk about it more tomorrow, an actual terror advisory since they took the color coding out. we say the f.b.i. is on higher alert. who else is on higher alert? what does that mean to americans and what should american december to protect themselves? it begins with the president
5:19 am
recognizing terror and going into people of faith and saying, listen, give up the bad folks. give up the people who mean to do harm to americans and to others around the world. life is not going to win. we're not going to allow them to win. let's call it what it is. >> we don't raise the threat level. we increase our posture. >> i don't know what that means. >> nobody does. >> we'll prevail, but it will take some time. >> peter johnson, jr., thank you very much. coming up on this thursday, remember all those illegal immigrants released from jail to save money? we were told by the administration they were low risk criminals. right? now we know the truth. and it is shocking. coming up, we've heard about college athletes getting away with skipping class, but what we're about to tell you will put that to shame. ♪ ♪ i have a cold

this morning he's hoping to tell voters how to vote in texas. stumping for greg abbott who is facing wendy davis for governor i'm going to wrap it up there. we have very little time. remember the time of the sequester and the democrats said look, we got to do all this stuff because the republicans forced us to do it? we also heard that to save money, because of the sequester, they were going to release 2200 illegal aliens. for the most part, they had minor criminal records. now it turns out they weren't so minor. some of them were really, really bad people who should have stayed locked up. >> usa today is reporting they are murderers, rapists, violent robbers. does this make any sense at all to release them? these aren't petty crimes. they need to kick them out of the jails to make room. >> we were flat out lied to. don't worry about it, they're
5:25 am
low level. drug trafficking, homicide, if that doesn't bother you, then you're okay with this. listen to what isis is saying. the discretionary releases made by ice were of low level offenders. however, the releases involved individuals with more significant criminal histories were by and large dictated by special circumstances outside of the agency's control, including supreme court mandated releases. >> we're lock them up and doing what we can and other circumstances -- >> but don't tell us they're low level and don't relay to us if you know that you're not telling the truth. >> were you lying while you were on damage control or were you unaware and inept at your job? >> jay carney is one of the people on record there at the podium who said they were low risk, noncriminal detainees. that's not true. >> if you want to lay the ground work for immigration reform, shouldn't you start with honesty? often it's the hardest word. evidently it's harder when it comes to immigration.
5:26 am
>> shouldn't they be able to vote? no. they shouldn't. obviously. >> except in north carolina. >> that's going on today. board of election officials have realized that there are 150 illegal immigrants on the voter rolls and that's just what they know about. there are more than 9,000 others in question in the state of north carolina, which is an all important battle ground state. >> apparently 9,000 people, they don't know if they're entitled to vote or not because they wound up being flagged as being able to vote through the dmv. and these are people who, through the president's dreamer program, young people who are brought into this country by their parents before the age of 16, they got this special status. now, according to north carolina, looks like they can vote. they can not vote, so they got to catch them -- catch the names to realize, wait a minute. this person is legal to drive, but they can't vote. >> so some of you are responding. one says, this is the -- the top
5:27 am
issue they should be carrying guns in canada and the second biggest about voter fraud. voter i.d. needs to be implemented in every state to stop #voterfraught. >> another says showingism d. will solve this problem. cross reference list can deny votes to those ineligible. >> another says of course, who are we to deny the right to vote for the dead, cartoon characters or our pets? >> exactly. it's a big worry. we just want to know who really won the election. is that possible? it's a couple weeks away. >> keep the comments coming. coming up, air bags exploding just like ieds. that's right. the government had a plan to warn you, but it's broken. but don't worry. we're going to explain all this, what you need to know coming up. democrats trying to keep their jobs on capitol hill saying the white house political operation is flat out embarrassing. the e-mail you have to see coming up. ♪ ♪ ♪

5:32 am
lawmakers. >> the terror in can did is putting the f.b.i. on high alert, urging vigilance and watching for signs of a similar attack here at home. wendell goler is live at the white house. what is the administration saying this morning? >> reporter: they say there is no specific indication of a threat against this country, but in light of calls by terrorist groups like isis and others, attacks against the government, the f.b.i. has put its agents on higher alert. president obama called canadian prime minister harper last night. secretary of state kerry called his canadian counterpart. both offering a condolences for the soldier who was killed and any assistance that canada might need. the president spoke of the matter during a meeting with aides yesterday, including ron klain, the man he hire to do handle the ebola outbreak. he said the u.s. and canada are in sync when it comes to terrorism. >> it's very important i think for us to recognize that when it
5:33 am
comes to dealing with terrorist activity, that can did and the united states has to be entirely in sync. we have in the past. i'm confident we will continue to do so in the future. >> reporter: actually while the canadian prime minister described yesterday's incident and one on monday in which two soldiers were run over bay man in a car as act of terrorism, white house press secretary josh earnest said yesterday while the events were unfolding in ottawa, that it was too early to characterize them. harper, canadian prime minister, said the monday car attack was done by an isis-inspired recent convert to islam. one of the soldiers was killed. the attacker was shot by police. back to you. >> all right. wendell goler, we thank you very much. over the last week or so, we've been telling you about how the president of the united states has put himself out there this week with al sharpton and previousy where essentially he has said look, i'm not on the ballot, but my policies are, which the democrats running in red states really don't want to
5:34 am
hear. then he said to al sharpton that essentially, these guys, they're trying to distance themselves from me. but that's what they have to do to get reelected. in fact, i told them, do whatever you have to do to get relie detectorred. >> breitbart has a story out from an unnamed operative who says this, quote: the ineptitude of the white house political operation sunk from annoying to embarrassing. think about some of the things that have also happened. listen, i know being on the stump -- and endorsing somebody you barely know is a challenge, but the first lady certainly embarrassed somebody in the fight of his life in iowa. >> oh, yeah. you remember this, we saw the bailey being spoken over and over and over again by first lady of the united states, michelle obama, instead of brayly, bruce brayly. she wasn't corrected until she was about to say the web site and they corrected her. >> she said it repeatedly. and then the white house press shop sent out an e-mail and it was talking about mr. brayly, that's good, rather than
5:35 am
mr. bailey. but it said he was running for governor. he's running for u.s. senate. and then i believe in the middle of the night, then they issued a correction a couple hours later and said he's running for senate and his name is brayly. >> look at the iowa senate poll and how close it is and why it really matters. you have joany ernest at 48% and bruce brayly. i've seen this in a dead heat in other polls. >> of course, the poll numbers that we see from the president are at an all-time low. and so wouldn't you -- when you see the democrats distancing themselves, it's probably because of the low approval numbers. yesterday a column said it's all the lousy things the president is doing right now. >> josh earnest said day before yesterday, if they lose, you can't blame the white house. the news this morning is and ainsley brought it to us a little while ago, three big
5:36 am
names at the white house, dan pheiffer and jennifer palmieri, two people in the communication shop may be leaving. and ben rhodes, who helps the president with speeches, he may be leaving as well. if that's true, maybe they're thinking, okay. couple of tuesdays from now we're going to lose and some heads are going to have to roll. those are handy. >> remember with president bush, he said you got to fire me. gout to make some changes. he went ahead and did it and they said, whoever is not going to stay for the next two years, tell us now. if you're going to stay, stick it out. they brought in gates, donald rumsfeld had to go and they came in with the surge. >> or in this case it could be they need to blame somebody and they would be three handy people. >> right. meanwhile, ainsley earhart is here. your final update of the day. >> yeah. the show is almost over. flew by. breaking details about the air bags exploding. the recall list grew to

5:46 am
market that's looking to the upside. yesterday we had another attack in canada, the second this week. it's a tough story to bear, but they are on heightened alert now, calling it terrorism. and the markets sold off yesterday. the markets sold off yesterday for two reasons. number one, what was occurring in canada. number two, following oil. oil has been slipping. as a matter of fact, oil closed at the lowest levels yesterday, than since 2012, closed at 80.52 a share. ultimately low oil is great for lower gas prices for consumers, but the market is actually following oil to a certain extent. so we'll be watching for that. yesterday the dow lost 153 points. today it is looking to the upside. over 130 points. that's the futures are showing. so we've had a lot of volatility. we've been reporting it here on fox news. it's been a wild market. the market could have been much
