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.

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
