Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a 2020 presidential candidate, is holding a fundraiser in Las Vegas Tuesday night on the two-year anniversary of the deadly shooting that killed 58 people.
“Join us for an evening of entertainment, arts and culture, hear from and ask questions of Senator Bernie Sanders about our campaign and how to join the political revolution,” the invitation says.
It appears that any donation of $250 or more buys one ticket for the event, though it is unclear if higher dollar donors receive any sort of special treatment.
The event will be held in the same city on the same date as the now-infamous Las Vegas Shooting, wherein the public has been told that Stephen Paddock, a lone gunman, simply snapped and shot hundreds of people at the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay. No motive for the rampage, which killed 58 people, has ever been established.
Curious independent reporters have been stymied in their efforts to find out what actually transpired in Las Vegas on that night. What we have found is a narrative that is riddled with inconsistencies, including that fact that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police were ordered to turn off their body cameras during the shooting. On that evening, 911 calls were placed by multiple witnesses inside the Mandalay Bay, claiming that there were multiple shooters in the building.
I reported extensively on Brian Hodge, an Australian mystery man who reportedly was staying in the room next door to Paddock’s at the Mandalay Bay, and who met with a suspected terrorist the day after the shooting.
Ex-law enforcement and intelligence officials told me they were baffled that Hodge was not detained and questioned about the events that transpired that night.
“The digital signatures captured, tactical tradecraft, and media analysis strongly suggest that Hodge should reasonably be suspected as a person of interest in the Vegas massacre, and deserves more scrutiny,” the officials told me.
Still, we are no closer to knowing the full story.
But tonight, Sanders will host a fundraiser in the city, perhaps by accident, but also perhaps in a planned effort to raise money off the issue of gun control. Other presidential candidates Tuesday called for gun control in reference to the shooting.
“My heart goes out to the families and friends of those we lost during the #Route91 shooting two years ago today. I’ll keep fighting to end gun violence in America,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said on Twitter.
Failing candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who has vowed to confiscate semi-automatic rifles from Americans, also used the tragedy as a political tool.
“Two years ago, 58 people lost their lives in the deadliest mass shooting in our country’s history. We will never forget the lives lost in Las Vegas—and we will never stop fighting to end this epidemic, which takes the lives of nearly 40,000 Americans every year,” he said.
As usual, he left out the fact that two-thirds of gun deaths are suicides, and less than one percent of gun deaths per year in America are the result of mass shootings.
Facts don’t matter to the slimy left, which will do anything to raise a buck or advance its political agenda.
