American Hero Jesus Campos — Alone and Unarmed — Distracted Vegas Shooter and Cleared Hotel Floor

This story will hopefully renew your faith in humanity. If anyone ever deserved a Presidential Medal of Freedom, it’s hotel security guard Jesus Campos. Campos was the first to approach the gunman at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas and potentially saved many more lives through his heroic actions.

Campos was the first to realize that the killer was on the 32nd floor. Without a weapon, Campos approached the gunman’s hotel room and was shot in the leg through the door. Instead of fleeing, Campos remained outside his room, alerted police, and cleared the floor going door to door.

Despite officers ordering Campos to leave and tend to his wound, he stayed until every person on the 32nd floor had left.

Pretty amazing. Read more details here.

Another great story of an American hero is this security guard -- the hotel security guard. The guy is unarmed. His name, Jesus Compos. He had no weapon. And he's the one who finally figured out that the killer was on the 32nd floor. And he approached the hotel room. And the psycho inside fired through the door, hitting him in the leg. Well, he stayed there. Got police involved. When the police approached the room, Paddock fired about 200 rounds through the door at the police officers. So they -- they fell back and waited for S.W.A.T. to come. But even though Jesus Campos was wound, been shot in the leg, he continued to go door-to-door to clear the floor to make sure of the safety of the people staying in that hotel on that floor. To make sure that they didn't become victims as well.

I mean, he -- he was so committed, that the police officers had to order him to leave because he was wounded and he needed to be tend to. Pretty amazing.

And then finally, about an hour after Paddock quit firing, the S.W.A.T. team entered the -- the hotel room by blowing the doors off with explosives. And that's when he was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

But what an amazing -- what an amazing guy, this Jesus Campos must be.

He said, security professionals in those kinds of venues, whether it's a bank or a hotel or Disney World, I'm telling you that I don't think our officers recognized enough for the valuable role that they play in protecting property, people, and even the nation.

That's for sure.

JEFFY: Tough to argue that.

PAT: Yeah, it sure is. So Campos was well enough to try to leave the hospital not long after the shooting. He wanted to leave right away, even that night, but was kept there by staff and police who wanted to monitor him and just make sure everything was okay. Pretty amazing guy. And deserves an awful lot of credit, just a lot of bravery from that guy.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
