Stranger by the Minute: Vegas ‘Hero’ Security Guard Goes Missing

By Leo Hohmann. Every time it appears the investigation into the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history couldn’t get any more bizarre, something happens to take things to the next level of strange.

After a week in which the timeline of the shooting was changed by police and then contested by the Mandalay Bay hotel, the sheriff who has been the local face of the investigation lashed out at the public he had just days earlier asked to help in providing information about the killer’s motive . . .

Campos, meanwhile, has disappeared from public view. A security guard has been placed at his residence and he skipped out on five interviews Thursday night in which he had planned to break his silence.

He was scheduled to appear on the Sean Hannity show on Fox News Thursday night.
“We were in a room and we came out and he was gone,” Campos’ union president told reporters, according to ABC News’ Stephanie Wash.

Campos is represented by the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, which did not respond to requests for comment from Fox News earlier this week. (Read more from “Stranger by the Minute: Vegas ‘Hero’ Security Guard Goes Missing” HERE)

Las Vegas Shooting: Police Shift Timeline Again in Concert Massacre

By AP. The gunman who sprayed more than 1,000 rounds of bullets into a Las Vegas country music concert also took shots at jet fuel tanks and targeted police officers responding to the scene, investigators said Friday in portraying a killer who seemed determine to inflict even more carnage than the 58 people he murdered.

Investigators gave more details on the chronology of events surrounding the shooting and pushed back against criticism that they were changing their story.

Shifting accounts about when Stephen Paddock fired his first shots in his 32nd floor Mandalay Bay suite have led to questions about whether police could have done more to stop him on Oct. 1. (Read more from “Las Vegas Shooting: Police Shift Timeline Again in Concert Massacre” HERE)

Angry Gay Owner Unleashes on Christians Drinking Coffee in His Shop

A gay Seattle coffee shop owner kicked a group of Christians out of his coffee shop Sunday, after declaring he would “f*ck Christ in the ass.”

The owner heatedly tells the Christians to leave his shop immediately in a video posted to Facebook by Abolish Human Abortion, a Christian group seeking to end the practice of abortion.

“I’m gay, you have to leave,” the owner tells the group. “This is offensive to me. I own the place. I have the right to be offended.”

The group tried to explain that they hadn’t placed any in the shop, but the owner repeatedly told them to ”shut up.”

[Warning: very explicit language]

“There’s nothing you can say. This is you and I don’t want these people in this place,” the owner says. The group asks why he can’t tolerate their presence, prompting the owner to ask them if they would watch him have sex with his boyfriend.

Soiled ISIS Fighters Surrendering in Droves: ‘It Really Means This Is the End’

Nearly a thousand Islamic State fighters have surrendered to Kurdish forces after the terror group lost its last major city in Iraq, The New York Times reports.

Many of the dejected fighters reportedly have soiled themselves and await interrogation and trial by Kurdish authorities. The mass surrender of the terrorist group is particularly unusual for ISIS, who’ve made a point of fighting to the very last man. In many cases the group made the last days of battle painful for the opposing force by deploying waves of suicide bombers.

One fighter recalled to TheNYT that the ISIS governor of the town of Hawija himself gave the order to surrender in mass. “I believe if the governors are telling us to surrender, it really means that this is the end,” he lamented.

Allen West Exposes Brutal Fact About Christopher Columbus That Liberals Don’t Want America to Know

In a Sunday column on his website, former congressman and retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Allen West sought to clarify the reasons Christopher Columbus should be celebrated amid revisionist historians’ attempts to turn him into a villain.

West began his column by noting his amazement that Columbus Day celebrations could turn violent at the hands of antifa anarchist groups, who had planned a nationwide campaign to deface statues Columbus on Monday.

In September, a New York City-based radical anarchist group known as “Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement” invited Antifa groups nationwide to participate in “Deface Columbus Day.” RAM is described as an “extremely militant group that advocates for the violent redistribution of property” and “the abolition of gender,” according to Far Left Watch.

In support of Columbus, West provided an in-depth history lesson. He explained how eastern trade routes were cut off due to war, eventually leading to Columbus seeking favor with Queen Isabella of Spain in the hopes of discovering a route to the eastern trade lands by sailing west.

Although it was considered unwise at the time, Columbus convinced the queen that his plan was sound, and secured three ships for his mission — the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. Ultimately, he discovered the Americas.

West wrote that Columbus’ discovery allowed Western civilization to expand to the New World.

“Now, the leftists can whine and complain about what happened to the indigenous people,” wrote West, “but in the greater scheme of history, Western civilization was expanded to the New World. Incredible ideas and concepts were brought across the ocean, and eventually the greatest concept, individual liberty, was established here in these United States of America.”

West further argued that if the left “wants to cherry-pick history, then perhaps they should not be aligning themselves with Islamo-fascists, whose history of slavery, subjugation, and slaughter continues today.”

He contended that the Spanish wanted to export Christianity and Catholicism to the New World because of the “tyranny they had witnessed under Islamic rule from 711-1492.”

“And yes,” he said, “the Spanish Inquisition was a horrible piece of history, but it’s there to learn from, not eradicate or erase.”

West wrote that he is “very thankful” for Columbus’ bravery, but argued that such noble actions are not “what’s important” to the left.

“His was a feat of utmost courage and conviction,” West said. “If we are to erase his memory, then we shall never understand why he embarked upon his voyage. But, that’s not what’s important to the progressive socialist left who understands that if they control the past, they can manipulate the present, and certainly determine the future.

West concluded by saying, “Yo, my man, Christopher Columbus, God bless ya, and thanks. Happy birthday, brother, and to my Italian friends, remember this man, always.” (For more from the author of “Allen West Exposes Brutal Fact About Christopher Columbus That Liberals Don’t Want America to Know” please click HERE)

California: It’s No Longer a Felony to Hide HIV When Donating Blood… Even If Goal Is to Infect Others

After the height of the AIDS epidemic in the late 1980s, California has held to laws making it a felony — and enforced by prison time — to knowingly infect another individual with HIV.

Thus, “it’s a felony for an HIV-positive person to have unprotected sex without informing their partner that they are infected. It is also a felony for HIV-positive people to donate blood, body organs or other tissue,” according to The Sacramento Bee.

However, that law, labeled as “irrational and discriminatory” by Democratic state Sen. Scott Wiener of San Francisco, has been signed away by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown. Instead, knowingly infecting someone with HIV is now a misdemeanor rather than a felony.

The new bill would instead “make the intentional transmission of an infectious or communicable disease, as defined, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than 6 months,” according to the California legislature.

“Right now HIV is singled out for uniquely harsh treatment as a felony,” said Wiener.

“HIV is a public health problem, not a criminal justice problem, and it needs to be treated this way,” he said, according to Express Newsline, further adding that modern drugs can limit the exposure effects toward some, yet many remain discouraged from getting tested due to the threat of strict felony charges.

Wiener hopes the new bill might encourage people to get tested and, in turn, lower the HIV transmission rate throughout the state.

“These laws do not prevent HIV infections. All they do is stigmatize people living with HIV and reduce access to testing and care,” he said, according to the Los Angeles Times. He also noted that people who expose others with different viruses get only a misdemeanor as well.

But many are not taking kindly to the newly enacted bill.

“I’m of the mind that if you purposefully inflict another with a disease that alters their lifestyle the rest of their life, puts them on a regiment of medications to maintain any kind of normalcy, it should be a felony,” said Republican state Sen. Joel Anderson of San Diego.

“It’s absolutely crazy to me that we should go light on this,” he added, suggesting that tougher penalties should apply to those with other infectious diseases as well.

“When you intentionally put others at risk, you should have responsibility,” Anderson said, according to CNN.

Other Republicans like Sen. Jeff Stone, who is also a licensed pharmacist and pharmacy owner, agree.

Stone suggested that to purposefully infect another individual would “condemn one to probably $1 million in drug therapy for the rest of their lives.”

However, according to STAT News, the new bill would repeal the “mandated criminal penalties for donating blood, organs, semen, or breast milk despite being HIV-positive,” and many are praising the act in the name of equality.

“California’s outdated and draconian HIV criminal laws have disproportionately harmed people of color and transgender women,” said Melissa Goodman, the Gender and Reproductive Justice Project director with the ACLU of Southern California, Breitbart reported.

“With the enactment of this law, our laws will now become more fair, less discriminatory, and will promote treatment and prevention rather than criminalization,” she added.

A study done by the Williams Institute shows that “less than 13 percent of HIV-positive Californians” are women, but women account for “43 percent of criminal justice proceedings based on HIV-positive status.”

The study also suggested that African-Americans and Latinos were disproportionately affected, as they were subject to 67 percent of criminal proceedings, and made up 51 percent of the HIV-positive population in California.

However, reducing the punishment for those who violate another’s health could make them more vulnerable.

Just one — of the many — stories of intentional infection stems from 2015, when landscape architect Thomas Guerra was convicted of infecting others with HIV, and boasted about it. The evidence was found from 11,000 text messages and three dozen audio clips, according to Thought Catalog.

“Yay lol,” read one of the texts. “Someone getting poz that day. Poor Sucka.”

Katherine Lewis, The San Diego judge, who sentenced Guerra, had some choice words regarding the case.

“I think that’s a tremendous oversight in the law if this is just a misdemeanor,” said Lewis, who also called the light sentence a “travesty” while insisting the offense should be changed to a “felony.”

According to The Washington Post, Lewis “said she would have liked to have slapped Guerra with a stiffer sentence but was prevented from doing so by statutes.”

Another case was reported in 2011, when David Dean Smith attempted to “spread the disease to kill people,” Breitbart reported. He specifically targeted those “who are young. He hits young women…those are his targets,” one of his alleged female victims.

But the ACLU continues to defend this new bill, saying the old law was “based on fear and the limited medical understanding of the time,” even when there are others

Former Republican state Sen.Richard Rainey, who introduced a bill in the 1990s making it a crime to expose an unknowing partner to HIV or AIDS, told the Los Angeles Times in 2003 that he agrees with what he set out to do in protecting unsuspecting victims.

“The way I see it, these people are handing out potential death sentences,” he said. (For more from the author of “California: It’s No Longer a Felony to Hide HIV When Donating Blood… Even If Goal Is to Infect Others” please click HERE)

Hero Veteran Who Took Truck During Las Vegas Shooting Is Given Truck of His Own

Out of the tragedy of the recent Las Vegas shooting came a multitude of heroic acts and images, including the story of former marine Taylor Winston, 29.

That night, Winston had commandeered a truck in order to haul injured victims from the scene of the Route 91 Festival shooting to the hospital, as ambulances had not yet arrived.

And, on Monday, an Arizona dealership decided to reward Winston for his heroism, giving the former Marine a free truck of his own.

After reaching out through social media, Shane Beus, owner of B5 Motors in Gilbert, Arizona, was able to contact Winston, a San Diego resident, who picked up his F-150 Monday.

“It’s very, very courageous what he did,” Beus said, according to AZ Central. “He was willing to risk his life and run back into the storm and help out.”

“Most of us would have ran and never came back,” he added. “His military training allowed him to think in a split second what to do.”

Winston spoke about his experience and the need he saw to get people to the hospital right away.

“It was still quite scary, but we just knew they (the victims) had to get to the hospital immediately,” Winston said. “No ambulances were immediately available. There was far too many casualties for anyone to handle.”

Winston said he would get rid of his current vehicle and donate the money to victims of the Las Vegas shooting.

During a recent appearance on CBS This Morning, Winston said he started looking for a truck with the keys in it so he could make an improvised ambulance.

“First one we tried opening had keys sitting right there. I started looking for people to take to the hospital,” said Winston, who ferried three loads of wounded passengers to Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center before ambulances arrived.

“There was just too many, and it was overwhelming how much blood was everywhere,” he said.

The story also had a happy ending for Phelps Amelsberg, the Las Vegas man who left the keys where Winston found them, though he had one small request he posted on Facebook.

“To the person who stole my truck from Route 91 to haul a friend to the hospital: I am not mad. Would do the same thing if I had to,” Amelsberg wrote. “I would just like my keys back, please. I don’t even care that the back seats ruined.”

“You ditched the truck at town square in front of Stoney, will even buy you dinner and give you your cowboy hat back,” he continued.

Almsberg was eventually steered to Winston, where he connected with him directly and asked for the keys and an update on the injured passengers he’d helped.

“I have em for ya. When do you want to meet for em?” Winston replied. “I took about 30 critically injured to the hospital. Your truck was extremely important saving those people’s lives. I don’t know if they all made it.”

“I saved the tool box too. We pulled it out to fit more people but put it back in after the 3rd trip,” Winston said. (For more from the author of “Hero Veteran Who Took Truck During Las Vegas Shooting Is Given Truck of His Own” please click HERE)

Why Would Obama Allow His Daughter to Intern for a Sexual Predator? Michelle Praises Him as a ‘Wonderful Human Being’

By Danielle Burgos. As news breaks on media mogul Harvey Weinsten’s alleged sexual harassment stretching back decades, it’s alarming to think how many women may have passed through the doors of what accusers claim was a toxic work environment. One young lady who just added The Weinstein Company to their resume? Malia Obama, Barack and Michelle’s eldest daughter. When Malia Obama worked for Harvey Weinstein, she was 18. To be clear, Obama is not one of the women accusing Weinstein of sexual harassment. A statement from Weinstein’s lawyer to The New York Times states, “He denies many of the accusations as patently false.” Weinstein also released a longer statement to the Times that said in part:

“I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go.” . . .

EARLIER: Page Six first reported Malia Obama’s internship back on January 19, 2017 as unconfirmed rumor, but the very next day, The Hollywood Reporter officially confirmed Obama had secured an internship. This isn’t the first brush the Obamas have had with Weinstein. In 2011, Weinstein held a lavish, star-studded fundraiser for Obama’s 2012 presidential run at the exec’s Westport, CT mansion, and donated over $28,500 indirectly to Obama’s 2008 campaign through the DNC and their White House Victory Fund. According to Deadline: Hollywood, Weinstein praised Obama at the time, saying “You can make the case that he’s the Paul Newman of American presidents.” (Read more from “Why Would Obama Allow His Daughter to Intern for a Sexual Predator?

Michelle Obama Praised Harvey Weinstein as a ‘Wonderful Human Being’

By Fox News. Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein will reportedly be suspended from his film company pending an internal probe into multiple sexual harassment claims.

This comes after The New York Times reported Thursday that Weinstein has reached at least eight legal settlements with women over alleged harassment.

In the wake of these allegations, a video is making the rounds, showing former First Lady Michelle Obama praising Weinstein as a “wonderful human being” and a “good friend” at a student film symposium in 2013.

“I want to start by thanking Harvey Weinstein for organizing this amazing day,” Obama said at the Careers in Film Symposium at the White House. “This is possible because of Harvey. He is a wonderful human being, a good friend and just a powerhouse.”

“And the fact that he and his team took the time to make this happen for all of you should say something not about me or about this place, but about you,” she continued.

Harvey Weinstein Paid off Sexual Harassment Accusers for Decades

By The New York Times. Two decades ago, the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein invited Ashley Judd to the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for what the young actress expected to be a business breakfast meeting. Instead, he had her sent up to his room, where he appeared in a bathrobe and asked if he could give her a massage or she could watch him shower, she recalled in an interview . . .

In 2014, Mr. Weinstein invited Emily Nestor, who had worked just one day as a temporary employee, to the same hotel and made another offer: If she accepted his sexual advances, he would boost her career, according to accounts she provided to colleagues who sent them to Weinstein Company executives. The following year, once again at the Peninsula, a female assistant said Mr. Weinstein badgered her into giving him a massage while he was naked, leaving her “crying and very distraught,” wrote a colleague, Lauren O’Connor, in a searing memo asserting sexual harassment and other misconduct by their boss . . .

An investigation by The New York Times found previously undisclosed allegations against Mr. Weinstein stretching over nearly three decades, documented through interviews with current and former employees and film industry workers, as well as legal records, emails and internal documents from the businesses he has run, Miramax and the Weinstein Company.

During that time, after being confronted with allegations including sexual harassment and unwanted physical contact, Mr. Weinstein has reached at least eight settlements with women, according to two company officials speaking on the condition of anonymity.

U.S. State Can Now Jail People for Misusing Gender Pronouns

California can now start jailing people that refuse to use the preferred gender pronouns of nursing home residents after Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill Thursday.

The law’s effect is limited to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, but mandates that those who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” can be slapped with a $1,000 fine and up to one year in prison, according to the California Heath and Safety code.

Known as the “LGBT Senior Bill Of Rights,” the legislation also requires nursing homes and care facilities to allow residents to use the bathroom of their choice, regardless of biological sex. The bill’s author, state Sen. Scott Weiner, argues that religious views don’t hold weight in public areas.

“Everyone is entitled to their religious view,” Wiener said. “But when you enter the public space, when you are running an institution, you are in a workplace, you are in a civil setting, and you have to follow the law.” (Read more from “U.S. State Can Now Jail People for Misusing Gender Pronouns” HERE)

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)

Billionaire Pedophile Who Videoed Powerful Politicians Having Sex With Children Pays Millions to Settle Suits

By Lia Eustachewich. Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein paid $5.5 million to settle lawsuits filed by three of the more than two dozen teens who sued him, according to a new report.

Epstein — who was accused of recruiting dozens of underage girls as sex slaves for his wealthy pals — paid $1 million to victim L.M., $2 million to E.W. and $2.5 million to Jane Doe, the Palm Beach Post reported.

The settlement details were disclosed as part of an ongoing feud between Epstein and lawyers Bradley Edwards and Scott Rothstein.

Rothstein is serving a 50-year sentence for running a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme. Epstein had sued the Florida attorneys, claiming Edwards — the lawyer who filed suits on behalf of some of Epstein’s accusers — fabricated the sex-slave allegations in order to perpetuate Rothstein’s Ponzi scheme.

Woman Who Says She Was Jeffrey Epstein’s Sex Slave Settles Suit

By Kaja Whitehouse. On the eve of trial, a woman who said she was a sex slave of Jeffrey Epstein settled her defamation lawsuit against the billionaire perv’s former girlfriend, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

The amount of the settlement was undisclosed, but Virginia Giuffre — who claims Maxwell lured her into Epstein’s harem when she was a teenager — said she is “pleased” with the result.

Giuffre sued Maxwell in Manhattan federal court in 2015 for publicly denying that she procured Giuffre for Epstein when she was underage and called Virginia Roberts.

The May 25-scheduled trial was expected to be a show-stopper, with testimony about private planes and rendezvous with wealthy and connected people, including Epstein’s pal Prince Andrew. (Read more from “Woman Who Says She Was Jeffrey Epstein’s Sex Slave Settles Suit” HERE)
