Las Vegas Shooting Victim: “There Was 100% More Than One Shooter,” Gates to Concert Were Locked Shortly Before Attack

Las Vegas mass shooting victim Rocky Palermo was shot in the pelvis during the horrific attack and is now speaking out about what he saw and believes happened, including the presence of multiple shooters as well as locked concert gates and police telling frantic civilians to go in the other direction.

Palermo, who has done various interviews since the attack, appeared on “The Blast” with a series of shocking comments that correlate with various other reports indicating that multiple shooters carried out the attack and that the FBI is actively covering this up.

“I definitely do believe that there was 100% more than one shooter, every other person that I’ve talked to that did unfortunately get hit as well, have all said the same things,” Palermo detailed.

The man then goes on to explain that after being shot he ran “about 200 yards” to hide behind a car, all the while hearing bullets fly past him at what he believes was ground level.

“I’m waiting and all of a sudden we hear a little whizzing going by us, all of a sudden bullets are just flying by,” he continued.

“When something is coming up and down or at least from a different angle they are either going to hit the ground or… a lot of different things are going to happen. When someone is shooting form a horizontal line its just going to keep shooting,” Palermo attempted to explain. Take note that what he means here is that people were being shot at from ground level rather than the 32nd floor of the hotel.

Palermo then specifically heard the gun shots get “closer and closer” before quickly deciding it was once again time to run.

Shockingly, he then goes on to detail the fact that at the end of the concert the previous two nights everyone had exited a specific way, but on the night of the shooting this route was locked down shortly before the attack.

“Every other night at the concert, everybody kinda exited right off Las Vegas Blvd, that was standard, that was routine, you get out of the concert and you go down to the next casino,” he continued.

“At 10pm they closed every exit on Las Vegas Blvd, every single one. They gated them all closed with chain-link fences, 10:08 the shooting started and we were pigs sitting in a corral. We only had one exit to go out of…..everyone was just kinda following the sheep.”

Palermo makes it clear hat this confused concert goers who had used the normal exits in the past.

“The same exits we had came in and left Friday and Saturday night were definitely closed. There were people that went over there and tried to leave and there were cops that were telling them no, you can’t go out here, you have to go the other way,” he shockingly concluded.

This stunning testimony is obviously a huge bombshell in the ongoing investigation of the Las Vegas mass shooting and is sure to continue to add credence to the growing belief that we are not being told what actually happened that fateful night.

Vegas Shooting Victim Who Stood for Trump Makes Sudden Realization About Hospital Moment

When President Donald Trump toured a Las Vegas hospital after the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, 28-year-old Thomas Gunderson fought through the pain of his injuries to stand up and shake the president’s hand when he came to visit.

On Facebook, Gunderson shared a video of his encounter with the president and it immediately went viral — racking up over 22 million views.

“I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand! There may be plenty of issues in this country but I will always respect my country, my president and my flag. Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my President the respect he deserves!” Gunderson’s Facebook post said.

After Trump’s visit, Gunderson gave his first TV interview on Thursday with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

“I don’t care what anybody has to say to me, he cared. He wanted to listen to me and shake my hand and thank me and was just so awesome,” Gunderson told Hannity.

“And Melania was so sweet. To me, it felt like they genuinely cared about the people here and what happened,” he added.

When Hannity asked about why he insisted on standing despite Trump quietly telling him not to, Gunderson said him he just wanted to show the president respect.

Gunderson was shot in the leg after helping other concert-goers escape the festival grounds.

Within minutes, two young women came upon him and administered first aid.

[Gunderson] was one of the more than 500 people injured during Stephen Paddock’s rampage.

Regarding his meeting with Trump, Gunderson wrote in a later Facebook post that he shared the video to spread “an uplifting message during this horrific time in our country.” (For more from the author of “Vegas Shooting Victim Who Stood for Trump Makes Sudden Realization About Hospital Moment” please click HERE)

San Juan Mayor Feuding With Trump Turned Her Back When Asked to Swear to Uphold the Constitution

A 2013 video shows the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, turning her back when asked to swear to uphold the Constitution.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump called out Carmen Yulín Cruz, the mayor, for her “poor leadership ability” in a tweet. The day prior, Cruz had been critical, saying, “If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency.”

Cruz first became mayor of San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, in 2013. When taking the oath of office, Cruz delayed repeating the words that she would “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States,” turning her back to the woman administering the oath for a long moment.

The English and Spanish versions of the oath read as follows:

I, Carmen Yulin Cruz Soto, as mayor of San Juan, solemnly swear that I shall uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and Laws of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico against any domestic or foreign enemy; that I will render fidelity and adherence to them; and that I assume this obligation freely and without mental reserve or purpose to evade it; and that I will perform well and faithfully the duties of the position or employment that I am about to exercise. So help me God.

Yo, Carmen Yulin Cruz Soto, como alcaldesa de San Juan juro solemnemente que mantendré y defenderé la Constitución de los Estados Unidos y la Constitución y las Leyes del Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico contra todo enemigo interior o exterior; que prestaré fidelidad y adhesión a las mismas; y que asumo esta obligación libremente y sin reserva mental ni propósito de evadirla; y que desempeñaré bien y fielmente los deberes del cargo o empleo que estoy próximo a ejercer. Así me ayude Dios.

Article VI, Section 16 of Puerto Rico’s Constitution states, “All public officials and employees of the Commonwealth, its agencies, instrumentalities and political subdivisions, before entering upon their respective duties, shall take an oath to support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.”

After turning her back and pausing, Cruz does swear to defend the Constitution, and then enthusiastically repeats to uphold the Puerto Rican Constitution.

“During June of this year, when the leading newspaper in Puerto Rico polled people on the island about her performance as mayor, she had an abysmal 24 percent approval rating,” says Ken Oliver-Méndez, former assistant secretary of state of Puerto Rico.

“She is known for maligning and stoking sentiment against the United States, and people know that if it were up to her, Puerto Rico would not even be part of the United States. She has said on record that in her party, there is no room for people who believe in the permanent union of Puerto Rico and the United States,” Oliver-Méndez, director of Media Research Center Latino, added. Oliver-Méndez, who previously headed the speechwriting team of former Puerto Rico Gov. Luis Fortuño, unearthed the 2013 video.

Cruz called Trump’s visit to Puerto Rico to survey the damage of Hurricane Maria “insulting,” Politico reported.

“This was a PR, 17-minute meeting,” Cruz said. “There was no exchange with anybody, with none of the mayors. And in fact, this terrible and abominable view of him throwing paper towels and throwing provisions at people, it really—it does not embody the spirit of the American nation, you know?”

On Twitter, Trump defended his stance of the visit to Puerto Rico.

The Daily Signal requested comment from the San Juan City Hall and the office of Rep. Jenniffer González-Colón of the New Progressive Party. González-Colón is Puerto Rico’s only representative in Congress.

Lifelong Criminal Who Assaulted Disabled Man Finally Brought to Justice

A lifelong Delaware criminal made headlines in May after surveillance footage from a Pennsylvania convenience store depicted him mocking and then assaulting a disabled man, went viral.

The incident reportedly reportedly occurred on May 10, when Barry R. Baker of Georgetown, Delaware, mocked a man with cerebral palsy outside a 7-Eleven store in West Chester.

Baker then proceeded to sucker punch the man.

The surveillance footage can be viewed here:

“This defendant is a bully,” Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan reportedly said following Baker’s arrest. “Every decent citizen should be outraged by the defendant’s conduct. The victim is to be commended for keeping his cool and notifying the police.”

“The defendant’s actions in this case are appalling,” added West Chester police chief Scott Bohn. “You wonder what would make an individual treat somebody like that.”

Baker managed to obtain his freedom — for a while, anyway — by paying 10 percent of a $25,000 surety bond.

In the days following his release, however, additional warrants were issued for “violation of his probation on theft charges” and “failure to pay back child support,” according to Chester County’s Daily Local News.

Local authorities eventually captured him at a Chester County hotel in early June, though during a court hearing afterward he claimed he had voluntarily returned to the county to turn himself in.

“I came back last night,” he told Senior Judge Ronald Nagle. “I wanted to turn myself in today.”

As noted by the Local News, however, he “had no explanation as to why he had not registered under his own name at the hotel where he was found,” and as to why he “had a number of untraceable ‘burner’ phones in the room with him.”

Two months later Baker again made headlines when he claimed a corrections officer at the Chester County Prison had assaulted him.

“Here is some more news for you,” he wrote in a handwritten letter to the Daily Local News. “Sunday night around 11:30 p.m. I was attacked by a CO while housed on PC.”

Baker then disappeared from the limelight again until late September, when he finally pleaded guilty to the charges stemming from his encounter with the disabled man months earlier.

His attorney claimed at the time that he was sorry for his actions and simply wanted to move on with his life. (For more from the author of “Lifelong Criminal Who Assaulted Disabled Man Finally Brought to Justice” please click HERE)

Video Footage Appears to Confirm SECOND Shooter in Las Vegas? Probably Not . . .

(Editor’s Note: The “second shooter” theory, at least based on the videos below, is bunk. Other videos show a similar reflection on the window prior to the massacre and there’s no evidence of the window being broken below the 32nd floor. That being said, several concert-goers swear there was more than one shooter. In the din of confusion, there’s a strong possibility that they heard echoes. Please comment below on what you think.)

By Tyler Durden. Video has emerged that raises serious questions about the official authorities’ version of events in Las Vegas on Sunday night…

(This video has been removed without explanation):

But as Intelihub reports, a taxi driver found herself a little too close for comfort last Sunday night as she slowly navigated her vehicle through Mandalay Bay’s property while 59 people were massacred and 526 others were being struck by a hail of bullets.

Astonishingly, the driver managed to capture video footage of what may be a second shooter which contradicts the current mainstream media narrative which purports that only a single shooter fired from the 32 floor.

In the bombshell video, what appears to be oscillating muzzle flash can be seen emitting from a lower-level window about 7 rows over from the right (north side) of the building and fully-automatic gunfire can be heard which also appears to coincide with the muzzle flash.

Casino Security Video Shows Vegas Shooter in 2011

Mandalay Bay shooter Stephen Paddock may have been a high-roller, but he lost a slip-and-fall lawsuit against a Nevada casino in 2014 — and still owed $270 in court fees when he killed at least 59 people Sunday.

Security video from the Cosmopolitan Hotel shows Paddock slipping and falling on Oct. 30, 2011, as he walked from a hotel shop towards a high-stakes area in the casino. Paddock said he had slipped in a puddle of liquid and sued the hotel in 2012, initially asking for $100,000, according to the attorney for the hotel, Marty Kravitz.

“They always ask for a lot more than they can get, but he got nothing,” said Kravitz. (Read more from “Casino Security Video Shows Vegas Shooter in 2011” HERE)

Steelers Player Announces Plan for National Anthem at Next Game

Three days after the Pittsburgh Steelers unintentionally entangled themselves in the ongoing national anthem controversy by remaining in the stadium tunnel during the anthem at a game in Chicago, center Maurkice Pouncey announced the team intends to “make it right” next time.

“I promise you one thing this week: We’ll all be standing out there for the national anthem,” he said after practice Wednesday. “Trust me. We respect our flag and we respect the military.”

Regarding what happened Sunday, he claimed it was just a “big misunderstanding.”

“Trust me, I’m very sorry to anyone who feels the way they do,” he said. “I care about the flag dearly. Trust me, this team will be out there standing Sunday.”

The team’s decision Sunday to remain in the tunnel came in response to an ongoing controversy surrounding statements made by President Donald Trump at a rally in Alabama last Friday.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects the flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b—h off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’” Trump had said, referencing protests by certain NFL players upset by what they perceive to be racial injustice in America’s criminal justice system.

This remark wound up triggering widespread backlash, with numerous players and team owners across the NFL mounting a joint effort to rebuke the president by joining the protests against the national anthem.

In a bid to avoid becoming involved in this controversy, all members of the Pittsburgh Steelers except one decided to skip taking part in the anthem ceremony Sunday. Only offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger, appeared on the field.

Villanueva later apologized for taking a lone stand, expressing remorse for having thrown his teammates “under the bus.”

Likewise, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger released his own statement expressing regret over what happened.

“The idea was to be unified as a team when so much attention is paid to things dividing our country, but I wish we approached it differently,” he said. “We did not want to appear divided on the sideline with some standing and some kneeling or sitting.”

In his own statement Wednesday, Pouncey made it clear that when his team stands up for the national anthem at its next game, he expects “100 percent participation” from all players. (For more from the author of “Steelers Player Announces Plan for National Anthem at Next Game” please click HERE)

Steve Scalise Credits ‘Power of Prayer’ for Return to Congress

Rep. Steve Scalise returned to the House of Representatives Thursday for the first time since he was shot by a radical leftist.

After arriving to thunderous, sustained applause, Scalise gave a speech on the floor, thanking God and acknowledging the power of answered prayer in his recovery.

“The power of prayer is something that you just cannot underestimate,” Scalise said. “I am definitely a living example that miracles really do happen.”

Watch his full speech:

Thanking the Capitol Hill police, his doctors at MedStar, and his well-wishers in Congress and from around the world, Scalise said his faith in God was strengthened by the experience and the outpouring of love he felt.

“While some people might focus on a tragic event and an evil act, to me, all I remember are the thousands of acts of kindness and love that came out of this, ” he said. (For more from the author of “Steve Scalise Credits ‘Power of Prayer’ for Return to Congress” please click HERE)

Saints Quarterback: Respecting the Flag More Important Than Making a Point

Fighting against racism does not mean failing to treat the American flag with respect, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees said Sunday.

After the New Orleans Saints defeated the Carolina Panthers, what happened on during the game took second place to the growing furor over protests that occurred during the playing of the national anthem.

On Friday, President Donald Trump criticized players who protest racism by failing to stand for the anthem, causing players, coaches and owners around the NFL to take a stand.

Brees said Trump came down too hard.

“I disagree with what the president said and how he said it,” Brees said. “I think it’s very unbecoming of the office of the President of the United States to talk like that, to the great people like that, and, obviously, he’s disappointing a lot of people.”

Brees said that there are two problems on the table — one is that not all Americans have an equal chance at success, and the other how NFL players are responding to that issue.

“Let me say this first – do I think that there’s inequality in this country? Yes, I do. Do I think that there’s racism? Yes, I do. I think there’s inequality for women in the workplace; I think there’s inequality for people of color, for minorities, for immigrants,” he said.

How NFL players respond to that issue determines whether he is with them or not.

“If the protest becomes we’re going to sit down or kneel or not show respect to the flag of the United States of America and everything it symbolizes and everything it stands for, everything our country has stood for to get to this point, I do not agree with that,” he said.

Brees said the anthem should bring Americans together, not divide them.

“Looking at the flag with your hand over your heart is a unifying thing that should bring us all together and say, ‘You know what, we know what things are not where they should be, but we will continue to work and strive to make things better and bring equality to all people,’” Brees said.

Brees also said the anthem is a time for respect.

“I will always believe that we should be standing and showing respect to our flag with our hand over our heart. I will never say it’s OK to not show respect to the flag of the United States of America during the national anthem,” he said.

Brees, whose grandfather served in World War II, said the flag is a symbol all Americans should hold dear.

“That is the symbol of showing respect to our country. I won’t. I don’t think that that’s OK because of all who have fought so hard and died and sacrificed so much for us to have the things we have, to have the freedoms that we have. The very freedom of the speech that we are talking about was born from that flag,” he said.

Although 10 New Orleans Saints did not stand for the anthem, contradicting what Brees believes is right, he did not expect the issue would divide him team.

“I’m not sure exactly what happened pregame because I was locked in, but I’ll talk to all my guys and we’ll be fine,” he said. (For more from the author of “Saints Quarterback: Respecting the Flag More Important Than Making a Point” please click HERE)
