One important thing that Ellen de Generes did not ask Jesus Campos? The disputed TIMELINE.
Ellen did not press Jesus Campos to clarify the lingering questions about the official timeline – such as whether he or hotel officials delayed calling police for six minutes after he was shot. Police changed the timeline three times. MGM disputed their statement.
The jury trial for a Casper resident charged with sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl began Monday.
Martinez faces one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. If found guilty, Martinez could face up to 70 years in prison.
Martinez’s public defender, Tracy Hucke, said at a previous hearing that her client identifies as a woman and uses the name Michelle.
The 10-year-old’s mother reported to Casper police in March that her daughter said Martinez sexually assaulted her in a bathroom.
The girl told police that Martinez, who is a family friend, invited her into the bathroom, touched her breasts and genitalia before penetrating her. Nurses at the Wyoming Medical Center completed a sexual assault exam and found redness and abrasions on the girl’s genitalia.
The health of a nation’s economy and the health of its people are connected, but in some surprising ways. At times like these, when the economy is strong and unemployment is low, research has found that death rates rise.
At least, in the short term. In the long term, economic growth is good for health. What’s going on?
One study of European countries just before and during the Great Recession found that a one-percentage-point increase in the unemployment rate is associated with a 0.5 percent decline in the overall mortality rate. Other studies of Europe during different periods, as well as those of the United States, found a similar relationship between joblessness and mortality.
This is counterintuitive, since economic growth is a major factor in higher living standards. When the economy is more productive, we have more resources to promote health and well-being.
But a surging economy does more than generate greater income. An industrial economy also pumps out more air pollution as more goods are produced. Polluted air, it turns out, is a major contributor to the mortality-increasing effect of an economic boom. In their analysis of how economic growth increases mortality, David Cutler and Wei Huang, of Harvard University, and Adriana Lleras-Muney, of U.C.L.A., found that two-thirds of the effect can be attributed to air pollution alone.
New Evidence Shows McCain Helped Fund FBI Plot to Frame Trump; Backed Bogus Russian Trump Dossier
( True Pundit ) New evidence from court documents and intelligence sources combine to show the unthinkable: U.S. Senator John McCain colluded with the FBI and possibly the DNC to sandbag President Donald Trump, before and after the 2016 election.
And McCain is from the same political party as President Trump. Allegedly.
But now court documents and new source Intel raise suspicions that McCain may have chipped in financially with the FBI or privately funded the counterfeit research, either himself or through his shady foundation.
Regardless, the research firm of former spooks — Fusion GPS who commissioned the problematic report — could have been paid for the same report by the multiple entities:
The FBI, through a black-budget fund as reported by True Pundit
John McCain campaign coffers and connections
McCain’s foundation: Arizona State University’s McCain Institute for International Leadership
Hillary Clinton-backed campaign operatives who paid $1 million for the research
TRUMP: “People have to be careful because at some point, I fight back. I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very, nice, but at some point, I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”
President Donald Trump responded on Tuesday to criticism from former failed presidential candidate evolving into a fake Republican Sen. John McCain, warning that he might be prepared to go to war with the ailing senator.
Trump’s remarks, given in an interview with WMAL’s Chris Plante, were in response to the speech McCain delivered at the National Constitution Center Liberty Medal ceremony in Philadelphia.
“People have to be careful because at some point, I fight back,” Trump said. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very, nice, but at some point, I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”
McCain alluded to Trump’s foreign policy as “half-baked, spurious nationalism” and said it was “unpatriotic.”
Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos will appear on the Ellen Degeneres show Wednesday. The show was taped Tuesday and approved for airing by MGM media officials who set up the interview. Campos is interviewed along with Mandalay Bay maintenance worker Stephen Schuck.
True Pundit foretold days ago that Jesus Campos, under a gag order from MGM for weeks, would break his silence during a controlled and scripted network television appearance.
“He is a victim in this and we don’t discuss victims,” Las Vegas Police Officer and Spokesman Larry Hadfield told Fox News on Tuesday.
Hadfield said the department is not planning on holding any future press conferences, absent the development of new details.
MGM Resorts International, the hotel’s parent company, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal: “Jesus Campos wants to tell his story at a time and place of his choosing. He’s asked that everyone respect his request for privacy. We could not be more proud of Jesus.” The newspaper suggested that based on that statement, MGM seems to know Campos’ whereabouts.
The bribery schemes included delivering thousands of dollars in yellow envelopes, laundering tens of thousands of dollars in briefcases or wiring thousands of dollars through shell companies through the Seychelle Islands, Latvia, Cyprus and Switzerland to name a few.
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.
The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.
Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefitting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.
The security guard can be seen in the video getting out of a Ford truck which has a hand towel covering its license plate.
After the security guard was confronted by a concerned citizen, who was filming the entire encounter the citizen removed the towel which was covering the truck’s license plate revealing that there, in fact, was no license plate at all which is against the law (unless, of course, Goff is the law.)
Falco told Intellihub exclusively that he received a phone call from the front desk of Mandalay Bay shortly before 7:30 p.m. in which a female operator instructed him to answer his hotel room door where four men (two armed guards, a security guy, and an FBI agent) simultaneously met him. Falco was then told to pack up his belongings before the FBI agent conducted a subsequent inspection of his room.
Nick Falco’s tweets about his investigation:
1. I questioned the #LasVegas shooting narrative. I went to Mandalay Bay to check for myself After 24 hours I was banned for life from MGM
3. There’s 1000s of surveillance cameras in gaming area, mostly visible There’s a surveillance camera in each main elevator. You cant hide.
4. Some People have said Paddock used service elevator w his girlfriends ID- this is FALSE There are No locks, No signs, No keys required
5. Police said Paddock used service elevators. Why? To bypass security? Service elevators arent prohibited from guests. No signs. No locks
6. There are visible surveillance cameras in all service elevators. There was no reason for Paddock to use these to get around security.
7. Red dot is service elevator. Main elevators are in middle. I’m pointing to Paddocks room Why did Paddock use service elevator? It’s far
8. I had clear view of Paddocks room, concert & fuel tanks Shooter didnt need 2nd window to shoot people & fuel tanks Why break 2 windows?
9. There is an exit staircase right next to Paddock’s room. No locks, no alarms, no signs & most importantly? No Cameras.
10. Samsung Smart TV in all rooms In @wikileaks#Vault7 release these are compromised listening devices by CIA I unplugged mine immediately
Proposed USA Liberty Act: reauthorize FISA Section 702 which allows the government to “conduct warrantless searches for the information of individuals who are not targets of Section 702, including U.S. citizens and residents.”
The U.S. government is quietly pushing through a bill in the wake of the Las Vegas attack that will allow agents, police and government officials conduct warrantless searches in people’s private homes.
More than 40 organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union and the Freedom of the Press Foundation, have joined together to condemn the USA Liberty Act, a trendy name for a dangerous bill that reauthorizes and creates additional loopholes for Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
In a letter to the House Judiciary Committee, the coalition noted that one of the most obvious problems with the USA Liberty Act is that it fails to address concerns with the “backdoor search loophole,” which allows the government to “conduct warrantless searches for the information of individuals who are not targets of Section 702, including U.S. citizens and residents.”
“The USA Liberty Act departs from the recommendation made by the President’s Review Group on Surveillance, appropriations amendments that have previously passed the House, and urgings of civil society organizations, which would have required a probable cause warrant prior to searching the Section 702 database for information about a U.S. citizen or resident absent narrow exceptions. As written, it raises several concerns. First, the bill’s most glaring deficiency is that it does not require a warrant to access content in cases where the primary purpose is to return foreign intelligence. This is an exception that threatens to swallow the rule.”
As the coalition noted in its letter, “the bill’s current language leaves room for the government to conduct queries and access content for law enforcement purposes without a warrant,” which should be considered a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment.
These are the 13 House Representatives that are sponsoring the poorly titled USA Liberty Act (H.R. 3989)

Rep. Conyers, John, Jr. [D-MI-13]

THE USA LIBERTY ACT
Background: Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which is set to expire on December 31, 2017, authorizes surveillance of the communications of non-U.S. persons outside of the United States in order to protect national security. It reportedly contributes to a quarter of all National Security Agency surveillance and has been used on multiple occasions to detect and prevent horrific terrorist plots against our country. Although Congress designed this authority to target non-U.S. persons located outside of the United States, it is clear that Section 702 surveillance programs can and do incidentally collect information about U.S. persons when U.S. persons communicate with the foreign targets of Section 702 surveillance. The program must be reauthorized with reforms to better safeguard Americans’ civil liberties and strengthen national security.
A single mother has been accused of killing her two youngest sons ‘by placing them in an oven and turning it on,’ according to an arrest warrant.
Lamora Williams from Atlanta, Georgia, allegedly put Keyante Penn, two, and Ja’karter Penn, one, in the oven, turned it on, and burned them alive on Friday,The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
The 24-year-old is believed to have recently quit her job because she couldn’t find a babysitter and told her friends she’d ‘had enough’.
Williams was said to have suffered from undiagnosed mental health problems brought on by her father’s passing when she was 19 and being a single mother of four young children.
Police say the boys had suffered horrifying burn marks when their bodies were taken from the apartment.
After she allegedly killed the children, she video chatted her boys’ father, Jameel Penn. He alerted the police immediately when he saw his motionless children on the ground and realized something wasn’t right.
Williams told cops the pair may have died while they were in the care of another person, but they soon realized that wasn’t true.
The oven was taken from the scene for additional investigation and an official autopsy is still being conducted.
Obama: ‘I’m grateful to @SenJohnMcCain for his lifetime of service to our country. Congratulations, John, on receiving this year’s Liberty Medal.’
Closet Democrat Senator John McCain (R-AZ) anti-nationalism Liberty Medal speech:
“To fear the world we’ve organized and led for 3/4s of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the last, best hope of earth, for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism, cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is an unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”
For his speech, Obama congratulated his comrade from across the aisle.
I’m grateful to @SenJohnMcCain for his lifetime of service to our country. Congratulations, John, on receiving this year’s Liberty Medal.
I'm grateful to @SenJohnMcCain for his lifetime of service to our country. Congratulations, John, on receiving this year's Liberty Medal.
UMC Quick Care spokesman told Fox News on Monday that they had “heard nothing” about Campos visiting any of their eight locations
SPFPA union member got a text the night before saying Jesus Campos was taken to a UMC Quick Care facility
( Fox News ) The Mandalay Bay security guard who disappeared last week moments before he was scheduled to break his silence in television interviews has not been seen since he went to a walk-in health clinic, his union president said.
David Hickey of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA) told reporters Friday that he got a text the night before saying Jesus Campos was taken to a UMC Quick Care facility, though he did not specify where or whom the text came from.
A spokesperson at the UMC Quick Care, which has eight locations throughout the Las Vegas area, told Fox News on Monday that they had “heard nothing” about Campos visiting them.
Multiple requests from Fox News for SPFPA to comment on the matter were not returned Monday.
Hickey said he was meeting with MGM officials Thursday afternoon in the hours before Campos’ scheduled television appearances, including one with Fox News.
“How can we be unified if there’s racism, sexism and homophobia in our school,” one of the teenage malcontents told the Des Moines Register.
They denied they were disrespecting the flag or the military even though they really were disrespecting the flag and the military.
“It was an expression of my anger and sadness in the direction our country is heading,” one of the budding anarchists told the newspaper.
“It’s to express I stand with people who are feeling persecuted or marginalized by the current president or people in power.”
The Ames Tribune reports that the students originally intended to take a knee on the field, but Principal Spence Evans rejected that plan.
( Fox News ) Ames High School has the unfortunate distinction of having one of the most un-American marching bands in the nation.
More than a dozen members of the band linked arms and walked off the football field Friday night during a performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” An untold number of other band members refused to play their instruments.
It was absolutely disgraceful. Sickening.
The children who staged the musical insurrection told local reporters they did so to protest all sorts of social maladies.

( Daily Mail ) A mistrial was declared in the murder trial of a man who was charged with burning cheerleader Jessica Chambers alive in a car in Mississippi.
Quinton Tellis, 29, will be retried in the burning death of Chambers, 19, after jurors spent more than 10 hours deliberating before saying they were deadlocked on Monday in a Batesville courtroom.
He had been charged with capital murder since her December 6, 2014 death occurred during the commission of another crime, third-degree arson.
Tellis did not take the stand in his own defense during the trial that began last Monday.
Prosecutor John Champion said during the trial that Tellis thought he suffocated Chambers while they were having sex before he drove her car to a back road.
Champion said that Tellis ran to his sister’s house nearby, jumped in his sisters’ car, stopped to pick up gasoline from a shed at his house and torched Chambers’ car and her.
Some first responders said Chambers looked like a ‘zombie,’ with burned skin and hair, when she walked from a wooded area in Courtland. She died hours later in a nearby hospital.
A burn doctor testified Chambers had so much damage to her mouth, throat and chest that she would be unable to properly say and pronounce words while she was speaking to firefighters.
Agents studied more than 20,000 cellphone numbers and interviewed more than 100 people during their investigation.
Prosecutors used cellphone location data and video surveillance footage from a store across the street from Tellis’ home in an attempt to prove he was with Chambers the night she was burned.
After being confronted with more evidence during another interrogation more than two years later, Tellis acknowledged that Chambers picked him up in her car at about 5.30pm that night, and said they spent about 1 ½ hours together, according to videotaped interviews played for the jury Friday.
Tellis, who had faced life in prison without parole if convicted, told investigators he kept a 5-gallon container of gasoline in a shed at his house.
Tellis faces another murder indictment in Louisiana, where he’s accused in the torture death of Meing-Chen Hsiao, a 34-year-old Taiwanese graduate student at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
Drag queen: ” I got to read to the children today and it was one of the best experiences I’ve been given”
The Michelle Obama Public Library in Long Beach, California hosted a satanic looking drag queen on Saturday to read to little kids for the library’s celebration of LGBTQ History Month.
The drag queen Xochi Mochi posted the same photo to his Instagram account and commented on Twitter about the event. His Twitter bio reads, “Attention Earthlings: This is Xochi Mochi your resident killer Klown from outer space. I dress up in drags and love tacos.”

The NFL likely hoped for a return to normalcy for Week 6, especially after Commissioner Goodell’s call to “move past the anthem controversy,” and address the issue in detail at league meetings on Tuesday. Instead, what the NFL got was a return to what has become the “new normal” in the age of anthem protests: empty seats.
Throughout the league, stadiums could be seen with thousands of empty seats at kickoff, and, in some cases in the middle of the game.
Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.
‘I was running downstairs in heels with a cup of coffee and fell backwards!’ Hillary Clinton reveals tumble that left her with a broken toe as she appears with Graham Norton hobbling on crutches and wearing protective boot
( Daily Mail ) Hillary Clinton hobbles away from filming The Graham Norton Show on crutches after breaking her toe falling down some stairs.
The former US presidential candidate arrived wearing a surgical boot to Norton’s BBC One show as she revealed she took a tumble in high heels while holding a cup of coffee.
The embarrassing fall forced her to pull out of a series of scheduled TV and radio appearances earlier today including ITV’s This Morning and Woman’s Hour on Radio 4.
Recalling her tumble, she said: ‘I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards.
‘I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe.’
She added: ‘I’ve received excellent care from your excellent health service.’
Mrs Clinton has been in the UK promoting her memoirs, What Happened, which documents her shock defeat in the US election.
This Morning presenter Philip Schofield said on Snapchat: ‘Supposed to be interviewing Hillary Clinton… but she’s fallen over and hurt her foot!! Gutted.’
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was greeted by boos and shouts of “fascist” as she arrived at Swansea University, Wales, to receive an honorary doctorate.
During a short five-step walk between the vehicle and the entrance to the Welsh campus building, the former Democratic Party nominee waved briefly amidst a cacophony of boos and jeers, with the sound of someone yelling “fascist” in the distance.
Goff’s Facebook posts date back to 2012 when he posted a “Department of Justice Federal Bureau of Prisons” logo, which leads some to believe that Goff could possibly be a prison guard and may possibly even be assigned to guard Campos who may himself be a suspect in the Oct. 1 shooting. If true, this would prove that the gunman Stephen Paddock may not have acted alone.
REVEALED: Harvey Weinstein Helped Pay for Bill Clinton’s Legal Fees During Monica Lewinsky Scandal
In August 1998, a Washington Post report noted that Bill Clinton was being accused of perjury and obstruction of justice regarding his testimony about his conduct with Monica Lewinsky.
” Hollywood was quick to come to the president’s aid. Among the 62 donors giving the maximum $10,000 were performers and directors such as Tom Hanks, Barbra Streisand, Michael Douglas, Ron Howard, Norman Lear, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw-Spielberg as well as studio executives Jeffrey Katzenberg, David Geffen, Harvey Weinstein and Bud Yorkin.”
“We believe that no first family should face such a horrendous financial burden while trying to carry out the work which the American people elected him to do,” said David Pryor, the former Democratic senator and Clinton friend from Arkansas who founded the legal fund.
“The man’s claims match up to actual events captured in police audio recordings from the night of the shooting which confirms that between 11:15 and 11:18 p.m. on the night of Oct. 1 there was, in fact, something going on at the Bellagio.”
Jeff from Canada: “My wife and I were in Las Vegas celebrating our 10th anniversary and on October 1st we were involved in an incident with an active shooter at the Bellagio. There is no mistake in my mind about it
“Then I heard somebody yell ‘there’s a shooter! There’s a shooter!’ And then I heard like five or six pops, like unmistakable gunfire, unmistakably.”
A Canadian man by the name of Jeff detailed the fact that he and his wife were in the Bellagio Resort and Casino around 11:20pm on the night of the shooting when panic broke out in the hotels lobby.
“First of all, I think what needs to be said is that, from my perspective, there were multiple events that occurred around Las Vegas, up and down the Strip that night. It wasn’t just centralized around the Mandalay Hotel,” the witness claimed.
The eyewitness then goes on to directly say that he and his wife were involved in an active shooter situation at a different hotel that authorities have so far done everything in their power to cover-up.
“My wife and I were in Las Vegas celebrating our 10th anniversary and on October 1st we were involved in an incident with an active shooter at the Bellagio. There is no mistake in my mind about it,” he continued.
Jeff then describes a scene in which he and his wife were walking through the main lobby when screams and gunfire erupted. Keep in mind, this is all information that the police and the FBI has hidden from the American people.
“All of a sudden there was just a crescendo of screams that started behind us in the lobby,” he claimed. “Then I heard somebody yell ‘there’s a shooter! There’s a shooter!’ And then I heard like five or six pops, like unmistakable gunfire, unmistakably.”
“That was about 11:20 when we heard the shots and the screams… at that point you could hear and see the screams and see hundreds of people coming towards us.”
Amazingly, as Shepard Ambellas noted, “The man’s claims match up to actual events captured in police audio recordings from the night of the shooting which confirms that between 11:15 and 11:18 p.m. on the night of Oct. 1 there was, in fact, something going on at the Bellagio.”
This testimony also backs up claims by another eyewitness, Rene Downs, who has spent the past few days doing interviews about a shooter inside the Bellagio Hotel.
Four key Las Vegas shooting witnesses are now missing or dead – coincidence or cover up?
1) John Beilman: killed both himself and his disabled daughter in an apparent murder-suicide. He was wanted for questioning by federal agents in connection with a communications device discovered in suspected shooter Stephen Paddock’s hotel room.
Neon Nettle reports: Agents executed a search warrant and raided Beilman’s Williamsburg Drive home the day before he took his daughter, Nicole, into the backyard and shot her and then himself in the back of the head with a 12-gauge shotgun.
2) Chad Nishimura: a Mandalay Bay valet who parked Paddock’s car when he arrived at the hotel, has also disappeared without trace after giving a statement to a Hawaiian mainstream news network, KITV4, about his brush with the killer. Nishimura directly contradicted the official narrative by claiming that Paddock arrived at the hotel with “not many bags” – certainly nowhere near enough to hold the amount of weapons and ammunition that was found in Paddock’s hotel suite.
3) Jesus Campos : The security guard ‘hero’ still missing in action has also gone missing. Fifteen minutes before his scheduled appearance on Hannity at Fox News – his first media interview since the shooting – Campos reportedly checked into a ‘quick clinic.’
It has also been revealed that photos featuring Campos, published in mainstream media, are not real. After putting the photographs through forensic testing at FotoForensics.com, it is clear these photographs have been photoshopped, raising the question of whether “Jesus Campos, hero security guard” really exists.
4. ) Kymberley Suchomel, one of the key witnesses who was not injured during the devastating Las Vegas shooting has been found dead in her home at the age of 28. The cause of her death has yet to be confirmed.
Kymberley Suchomel was one of the lucky attendees at the Route 91 music festival in Las Vegas who managed to escape the hail of bullets without being injured. Shortly after fleeing the scene with friends, she made a statement to mainstream media claiming that there were “multiple gunmen” firing weapons into the crowd and that she was chased by one such man.
( Daily Caller ) Four airmen from Shaw Air Force Base have been charged after allegedly spray-painting a church in South Carolina with satanic graffiti.
After being arrested Thursday in connection with the spray-painting incident, Kayla Eilerman, Clayre Savage, Daveion Green and Brandon Munoz have been charged with trespassing, malicious injury to a house of worship and criminal conspiracy, The State reports.
All four airmen were arrested a day after local authorities posted surveillance footage of the vandalism.
All four accused are active-duty airmen, Shaw Air Force Base stated Friday.
“The United States Air Force does not condone acts of vandalism,” 20th Fighter Wing spokesman 1st Lt. Alannah Staver said. “Such behavior is not representative of the Airmen of Shaw AFB as a whole. We feel we are a part of this community, are proud to serve here, and we are disappointed to hear of this incident.”

George Soros Funded A Study Of White Working-Class Voters Who Support Trump. Here’s What He Found
( Daily Caller ) Here is what they found:
In 2016, Trump was the ‘hope and change’ candidate for white working-class voters
The participants in the study say they view Trump as “strong” and “hardworking.”
The Trump campaign “personified an insurgent, anti-establishment rage against ‘politics as normal,’” according to the study participants.
“In many ways, Trump was the hope and change candidate in 2016, as Obama had been in 2008, albeit representing different constituencies.”
Some Trump voters say they were “appalled by” some of Trump’s statements during the campaign but “they valued that he was a ‘straight talker’” who appeared “‘direct’ and ‘honest’ in contrast with his opponents during the Republican primaries and the presidential campaign.”
Here’s how an interviewee in Birmingham phrased it:
“He’s honest for the most part…isn’t afraid to say anything and that’s the first time in my lifetime I have seen a politician say, ‘you know what, I don’t care. I’m going to say it.”
White working-class voters strongly favored Trump’s stance against illegal immigration and his promise to abandon the North American Free Trade Agreement. They believe the NAFTA agreement has been the cause of factory closures across the nation.
These voters also say they appreciated Trump’s many symbolic economic gestures — “for example: Trump donning a miner’s safety helmet” at June 2016 rally in West Virginia to promote coal production.
Trump hit a very deep, very raw cultural and economic nerve
Large swathes of Trump voters say they feel “disconnected and disrupted by the conflation of economic and cultural change,” according to the study.
“Trump’s message — ‘Make America Great Again’ — connected with white working-class communities who looked back at a golden past and hoped for a better future,” the authors of the study say.
A lawsuit filed against Gov. Brian Sandoval by Dale Zusi, Vicki Delatorre and Sydney Gordon was filed Thursday in Clark County District Court.
The lawsuit says the case “is about the refusal of the Governor of Nevada to discharge one of his most fundamental constitutional obligations — to see that the laws of this state are faithfully executed.”
CARSON CITY — A lawsuit has been filed against Gov. Brian Sandoval over the state’s failure to implement a private gun sale background check approved by voters in November 2016.
The lawsuit on behalf of Nevada residents Dale Zusi, Vicki Delatorre and Sydney Gordon was filed Thursday in Clark County District Court.
The lawsuit says the case “is about the refusal of the Governor of Nevada to discharge one of his most fundamental constitutional obligations — to see that the laws of this state are faithfully executed.”
The law requiring background checks on private sales has not been implemented because the state is unable to perform the checks based on the ballot language and the FBI has twice refused to conduct the checks.
Attorney General Adam Laxalt, who is also named in the lawsuit, said in a legal opinion on Thursday that Sandoval has the authority to again ask the FBI to perform the checks.
Attorneys for the background check ballot initiative said they informed the governor for months that he could start working with the FBI immediately to implement the background check law. Before last week’s mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, the attorneys said they set an Oct. 9 deadline for implementation that they would go to court if the law was not implemented.
The group Everytown for Gun Safety praised the decision to file the lawsuit.
Kymberley Suchomel: “Every single survivor I have talked to also remembers multiple shooters, and at least one from the ground- why aren’t we being taken more seriously? Tons of things don’t add up,”
( Your News Wire )Kymberley Suchomel, a survivor of the Las Vegas shooting who claimed there were multiple gunmen involved in the shooting, has been found dead. She was 28.
Suchomel was not injured during the shooting at the Route 91 music festival, and died suddenly in the early hours of Monday at her Apple Valley home, according to her grandmother, Julie Norton, who explained to SeaCoast Online that Kymberley must have died at some point during the four hours she was alone in the house.
Norton found Suchomel just after 8:30 a.m. when she arrived to care for her 3-year-old great-granddaughter. Suchomel’s husband Mike had left for work earlier that morning at 4:30 a.m.
Days after the shooting, Kymberley Suchomel explained to the Victorville Daily Press how she and her friends escaped with their lives as bullets rained down “from all angles” on the 20,000 concertgoers on Oct. 1.
Suchomel was also vocal about the fact there was “more than one gunman” involved in the attack, speaking out repeatedly and claiming that Las Vegas police and mainstream media were not providing the public with a truthful account of what happened.
“Every single survivor I have talked to also remembers multiple shooters, and at least one from the ground- why aren’t we being taken more seriously? Tons of things don’t add up,” she wrote on Facebook.
“I have been watching the news non-stop since I arrived back home to my family. And it just doesn’t make sense. The story that are feeding everyone doesn’t add up to our eyewitness accounts. There is something wrong with what they are saying & the evidence seems fake if you ask me.”
The employee alleged “cops beat up my boyfriend and are racists”
Police chief Jay Burch: “It was a ‘routine’ arrest,” Burch said. “There was no physical altercation and no one injured. So the employee was simply lying about her boyfriend getting ‘beat up’ by police.”
Whataburger worker fired for refusing to serve police officers
Fox New – A worker at a Texas fast-food restaurant was fired after she refused to serve two police officers, the company said Saturday.
In a lengthy post on the Denison Police Department’s Facebook page, Chief Jay Burch alleged the officers were cursed at by the employee and that the restaurant manager’s only response was “I don’t get into politics.”
“If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.”
In a statement, a Whataburger spokesperson said “an individual employee acted out of line with Whataburger’s values to treat all customers with respect. We took swift action and this person is no longer employed by us.”
Denison Sgt. Holly Jenkins said on Facebook that the employee was unapologetic, expressed her hatred toward police and said she would continue to refuse service to police officers.
The chief said a supervisor went to the restaurant afterward and spoke to the employee.
The employee alleged “cops beat up my boyfriend and are racists,” Burch said. He added that the woman told the supervisor her boyfriend was “beat up” when Denison officers arrested him a few weeks ago.
Burch said the supervisor went to the station and found the documentation of the arrest and then reviewed the video of the arrest from the arresting officer’s dash cam.
“It was a ‘routine’ arrest,” Burch said. “There was no physical altercation and no one injured. So the employee was simply lying about her boyfriend getting ‘beat up’ by police.”
Denison Police Department Chief Jay Burch response:
“If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.”
“Many of the officers also fear food-tampering with an attitude like this from such an employee.”
If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know. There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.
Now going somewhere else in Denison in the middle of the night is not easy because our officers don’t have many options. What really gets my goat with such an incident is that while most of us are sleeping – sleeping! — the officers are out there working hard to keep us safe and when trying to take a break to eat – they face this type of reception from an employee of a local business and management calls it “politics”? The employee also said she would continue to refuse to serve officers.
Now we know. And rest assured officers will no longer patronize this business. Many of the officers also fear food-tampering with an attitude like this from such an employee.
As we most always try to do when there is a conflict, a police supervisor went to the restaurant and asked to speak to the employee in an effort to understand why she felt the way she did toward police.
The employee alleged “cops beat up my boyfriend and are racists.”
When questioned further, the employee said her boyfriend was “beat up” when arrested by DPD a few weeks ago.
The police supervisor went to the station and found the documentation of the arrest, then reviewed the video or audio of the arrest from the arresting officer’s dash cam.
It was a “routine” arrest. There was no physical altercation and no one [was] injured.
So the employee was simply lying about her boyfriend getting “beat up” by police.
I’ve seen similar service refusal stories like this around the state and country but never thought we’d see it locally.
These women were all the same: vaguely European, always beautiful, stylishly dressed, and totally out of place next to someone like him.
The ritual for his rendezvous was very firm. Champagne, caviar, and an unspoken rule that Weinstein and his date not be disturbed. The pair would sit close, whispering and touching each other suggestively. After dining, Weinstein and the woman would often disappear for a while, exiting the restaurant through a side door.
Robert De Niro Was Client Of Prostitution Ring That Used Children.
According to court records from 1998, Independent journalist John Lichfield discovered that the prostitution agency routinely ensnared girls as young as 15, forcing them to have sex with Hollywood’s rich and powerful elite.
“Six people are charged with the running of an international prostitution ring, whose call-girls entertained the actor Robert de Niro, the former tennis player, Wojtek Fibak, two senior (but unnamed) French politicians and several Gulf princes. The agency specialised in tricking, or trapping, star-struck teenage girls into selling their bodies with the promise of careers as models or actresses….
Steve Bannon Declares ‘Season of War’ Against GOP Establishment
“There’s a time and season for everything, and now it’s a season of war against the GOP establishment,” Bannon told the gathering in Washington, DC. “It’s no longer acceptable to come and pat you on the head and tell you everything’s going to be fine [if you] just get these guys an office.”
Bannon is planning a full-scale assault in the 2018 midterms, reportedly planning challenges on every GOP senator up for re-election (except for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz) and is believed to be eyeing a number of House and gubernatorial races as well.
“This is not my war. This is our war. And y’all didn’t start it. The establishment started it,” he said.
( The Hill ) Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is in talks with Columbia University about a professorship, according to a Friday report.
The Daily Beast reports that Clinton is considering a “University Professor” role at the Ivy League school, which would allow her to lecture on a broad range of subjects without requiring a strict course load.
“It’s all fluid. It could be a number of things. No decisions have been made, but there are talks,” a source said.
“She’s trying to figure out what she wants to do. It could end up with the papers at one place and she has some sort of faculty role at another. She hasn’t quite come to a decision,” the source added.
Clinton, a former professor at the University of Arkansas School of Law, is currently on a book tour for her third memoir, “What Happened.” The book details her 2016 campaign and eventual loss to President Trump.
The Daily Beast’s source close to the former secretary of State said that her move back to academia would likely come within weeks, not months.
“I don’t think it will be two years from now. She gave birth to this book last month. She’s trying to get through that. But it will be a short time table.”
Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd.
We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball.
An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K.” But “George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed.”
We’re told that Lopez responded to Maffei, “Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men.”
Trying to recover and sensing the audience turn, Lopez said, “Listen, it’s about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America — it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.”
But following late-night television’s deafening silence in response to allegations that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is a prolific sexual predator, Kimmel said Friday he doesn’t want to hold the title bestowed on him by CNN.
“First of all, the Harvey Weinstein thing, people like this false equivalence of that’s somehow equivalent to what happened in Las Vegas,” he said Friday in an interview with “Good Morning America’s” Amy Robach.
Kimmel delivered a tearful monologue calling for stricter gun control laws within 24 hours of a deranged man shooting and killing more than 50 people at a country music festival in Clarke County, Nevada. In contrast, Kimmel didn’t touch the Weinstein story until Monday of this week.
The Weinstein story, “came out, like, I think moments before we went to tape on Thursday and we didn’t have a show on Friday,” he said in his defense.
The Weinstein story did indeed break last Thursday. Like many of his colleagues in the late-night comedy business, Kimmel didn’t touch the story until Monday of this week. However, as noted by the Daily Beast, Kimmel went after the story mostly as a means to attack Donald Trump Jr.
“Next time you’re defending your father and you think it’s a good idea to draw a comparison between him and a freshly accused sexual predator, don’t. It doesn’t help,” Kimmel said.
He then made a joke about Weinstein.
“I’m not in the movie business,” Kimmel, who hosted the Oscars this year, said in response to critics who claim his righteous indignation extends only so far, and that it doesn’t include anything about sexual harassment or sexual abuse.
Rush Limbaugh: Weinstein needs to hire the CEO of bimbo eruptions, and that is Hillary Clinton. She is the original bimbo eruptions bully. And as the most cheated-on woman in America, you couldn’t do better in hiring somebody who knows exactly how you need it blamed on a vast right-wing conspiracy
My second See, I Told You So was I thought a very clever theory, a very clever idea that I thought that would be so offensive to the left, although this is not why I announced the theory, but I thought they would be so outraged at this that they would be excoriating me left and right. And it is the theory that says if you’re Harvey Weinstein or any other man under siege the way he is, that you don’t need to go out and hire the highest reputed crisis PR company. You need to go hire the CEO of bimbo eruptions.
The CEO of bimbo eruptions could be of great service to Hollywood’s casting couch movers and shakers. Hillary Clinton is the expert in dealing with this. Hillary Clinton is incomparable. There is nobody that knows how to best destroy women who come forward with these allegations than Hillary Clinton. If you’re Harvey Weinstein and you want this to go away, you need to hire the woman who made it go away for the president of the United States, who made it go away for the entire Democrat Party. You need to hire the CEO of bimbo eruptions, and that is Hillary Clinton. There is nobody better.
Harvey and his ilk should not skimp. Hillary has led the most successful War on Women ever. She saved her husband’s name. She saved her husband’s governorship and presidency and the Democrat Party. You think Harvey Weinstein was a bully? You haven’t seen anything until you are a woman who claimed that Bill Clinton made a move on her and Hillary Clinton got involved. Hillary Clinton is the original bimbo eruptions bully.
And as the most cheated-on woman in America, you couldn’t do better in hiring somebody who knows exactly how you need it blamed on a vast right-wing conspiracy. You need it blamed on the conservative players of Hollywood or somehow for setting Harvey up, Hillary Clinton is the woman to do it. If there’s anybody who knows how to get rid of female attackers, women claiming that your husband sexually molested or abused them, it’s Hillary Clinton. You don’t need crisis PR. You need Hillary Clinton. And nobody refuted it. Maybe it’s so damn right on that the best thing they could do was just ignore it.
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) – “The loss of life and the injuries sustained, and amount of individuals involved, we are talking millions and millions of dollars, possibly hundreds of millions of dollars.”
That’s how much MGM might have to pay out to victims of the 1 October shooting, according to Michael Cristalli at the Law offices of Gentile Cristalli Miller Armeni Savarese.
We’ve already seen the first lawsuits, including class action lawsuits filed as a result of the shooting, and Cristalli said he is not surprised.
“The only thing that can be done is to try and make individuals whole is to file a lawsuit and seek monetary awards. Certainly it’s not going to put their loved ones back on earth or make them right completely, but it’s the only option they have,” he said.
According to Cristalli, MGM could have to pay every single person who was in attendance the night of the shooting, as well as the families of those who lost someone. The lawsuit will also take into account every person injured whether physically or mentally. The money, Cristalli said will be used for medical expenses, time victims had to take off work, future medical expenses, funerals and any emotional trauma caused.
“In a single case, damages could be in the millions and millions of dollars,” he said.
If a single cases could mean millions, that means MGM could be on the hook for not only the 546 injured, but those who are now emotionally scarred, meaning potentially tens of thousands of people.
“A company like MGM has massive amounts of liability coverage,” he explained. “They would be equipped as far as being able to cover the losses from these claims.”
As for whether or not MGM will go to court, or possibly settle out of court, Cristalli said that decision is a likely a long ways away, but added he doesn’t believe MGM will be backing down
“For the past four days he’s been preparing … (Thursday) we had a meeting with MGM officials, and after that meeting was over, we talked about the interviews, we went to a private area, and when we came out, Mr. Campos was gone…he was taken to a “quick clinic.”
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
The Mandalay Bay security guard who police said was shot in the resort’s hallway by suspect Stephen Paddock the night of the 1 October shooting was expected to talk to reporters Thursday. Instead, his union representative said he hadn’t seen or heard from Campos in hours.
David Hickey is the president of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America union. He said he had been working with Jesus Campos to help him get ready for his first media interviews.
But Hickey said during a meeting with MGM officials Thursday afternoon, Campos left and never came back.
“For the past four days he’s been preparing … (Thursday) we had a meeting with MGM officials, and after that meeting was over, we talked about the interviews, we went to a private area, and when we came out, Mr. Campos was gone.” Hickey said.
Hickey said it was Campos who had requested to do the interviews with the media, because he wanted to tell his story and begin to move on.
Hickey did say that he got a text Thursday night, saying Campos was taken to a “quick clinic.”
“Right now I’m just concerned where my member is, and what his condition is. It’s highly unusual. I’m hoping everything is OK with him and I’m sure MGM or the union will let (media) know when we hear something,” he said.
FBI: Over 1,000 pieces of evidence have been collected in Las Vegas shooting investigation
They’ve conducted hundreds of interviews, run down over 2,000 leads, conducted an extensive review of digital media on multiple devices, analyzed about 1,000 pieces of evidence, reviewed hundreds of hours of video and completed over 1,800 victim questionnaires, Rouse said. .

Sheriff Lombardo, MGM in agreement on latest Las Vegas shooting timeline
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said at a Friday press conference that LVMPD and MGM Resorts are now in agreement on the timeline on the Oct. 1 mass shooting at Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip.
MGM Resorts International has hired a leading crisis management firm following the Oct. 1 shooting at one of its properties.
The casino operator selected New York-based corporate communications firm Joele Frank, Wilkinson Brimmer Katcher to assist in responding to inquires from media and investors regarding the investigation into the Mandalay Bay shooting.
“Joele Frank is a top notch leading crisis PR firm. They are one of a handful of agencies with the deep strategic communications skills necessary to communicate effectively for MGM to consumers, the industry and shareholders,” said Torossian.
Woman files 1st lawsuit against MGM Resorts over Las Vegas shooting
Along with MGM Resorts, the complaint filed Tuesday in Clark County District Court names the estate of gunman Stephen Paddock, who fired into the festival crowd the night of Oct. 1, killing 58 concertgoers and injuring 489 others
Audio of Mandalay Bay engineer Stephen Schuck reporting the shooting:
A GoFundMe page that was set up for him raised about $40,000 before his death.
He was found when someone heard his cries about 1 a.m. Tuesday, and contacted police, according to the Sun-Sentinel. Ollie was taken to the VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital, where he died, the newspaper said.
Maria Cardona: “These Christian values voters have made a deal with the devil.”
( Raw Story ) Democratic strategist Maria Cardona talks to CNN on President Donald Trump’s speech to the Values Voters Summit in Washington, DC.
Cardona called issues like Christmas, and now somehow New Year’s, “political crack” to the Trump base because “the audience that he was speaking to today eats it up.” What she found to be “so ironic” was that it isn’t only a moral compromise, “these Christian values voters have made a deal with the devil.”
“There’s a reason why presidents, when they’re presidents, have never gone to this group,” she continued. “This is a group that has been categorized by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a radical right hate group. They put out pamphlets today, Don, about how homosexuality is hazardous to your health. I mean, there is a reason why going to this group does nothing to really focus on the issues that we’re facing today, which is the divisions of this country. The way that this president likes to divide us instead of unite us.”
On Friday, nineteen GOP Congressmen signed a letter entitled ‘Letter to Grassley-goodlatte Re Special Counsel Accountability’ on Congressional hearings for D.C. Witch Hunt Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his seventeen liberal hack lawyers on allegations of conflicts of interest and political bias. The letter also says Mueller’s lawyers operate in secret , selected and only accountable to one person – Robert Mueller.
