The security guard who reportedly was shot in the leg by Stephen Paddock during the October 1 massacre in Las Vegas, went to Mexico “just days after” the horrific shooting. “Customs and Border Patrol documents [show] that [Jesus] Campos apparently crossed the border into Mexico days after the Vegas massacre.” He went through the same border crossing in January. The crossing raises a host of questions. “Why would the FBI allow a material witness to flee the country during an ongoing investigation?” “If Campos was shot, why [or] how did he spend hours in a car on a road trip to Mexico rather [than] recuperating in a hospital bed”? And finally, “if this was a ‘pre-planned’ visit, as his union suggests, then why did investigators seem so baffled by his disappearance?” Las Vegas investigators have not been clear on the timeline of events. Events have been laid out as happening at a particular time only to be changed significantly in later press conferences. The longer law enforcement remains unclear, the faster conspiracy theories will get planted, take root, and further obfuscate the entire shooting.

The Deep State prevailed over Donald Trump’s better sense to throw open the doors to the vault of remaining secret documents relating to the assassination of President Kennedy. “Following last-minute recommendations of his national security agencies that some of the records be redacted,” President Trump allowed a mere 2,800 documents relating to the assassination to be released on Thursday. Although the deadline for releasing the documents has been on the books since 1992, and the date was well known, agencies of the Deep State were given another six months to “figure out what they want redacted.” A White House official said, “There’s a mad scramble going on in the executive branch to get this done.” Reportedly, “Some of the worry seems to center around documents created in the 1990s, when the congressional committee was crafting the legislation setting Thursday as the release date.” According to Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia, “The CIA wants some of the names in the documents redacted, and some of the paragraphs they say reveal the names of sources or theirs use by the CIA.”

Attorney Jeff Sessions announced settlements with more than 450 groups targeted by the IRS during the Obama administration. Under the agreement, “the government admitted that the IRS forced tea party groups into illegal delays and unconscionable scrutiny, including questions about their political beliefs, plans to run for office and names of financial backers.” Attorney General Sessions said, “There is no excuse for this conduct. Hundreds of organizations were affected by these actions, and they deserve an apology from the IRS.” The Obama administration made up a story about Lois G. Lerner as “being a hero who tried to stop the targeting . . . “ Under the settlement, “The Justice Department and IRS now say she failed to stop her employees and hid the bad behavior from her bosses for two years.” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen will be leaving the IRS in early November. “[H]e mislead Congress about the destruction of Ms. Lerner’s emails. . . “ So far the IRS did not join with the Justice Department in offering an apology to the Tea Party groups.

A report compiled by Chinese human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng details the breadth and “intensity of religious persecution that continues in” China. The report was translated by ChinaAid and Christian Solidarity Worldwide. According to the report, the Chinese government under President Xi has “violently” suppressed “religious groups, primarily Christians and practitioners of Falun Gong.” “The external environment for religious faith hit a new low in 2016 after 30 years of suppression,” wrote Gao Zhisheng. "Since Xi Jinping came to power, the CPC's general suppression of Christianity, with a particular focus on individual cases, has become a new and distinctive trend, which has been even more obvious in the past year.” Gao Zhisheng documented the suppression of Christianity. The property of Christians has been sized and destroyed. “In 2016, a pastor and his wife were buried alive in Henan [province] while protesting against their church being forcibly possessed. Adherents to Falun Gong “have been abducted, forcibly disappeared, framed, and tortured,” according to the report. Bob Fu of ChinaAid said, “We urge President Trump to speak to Chinese leaders about this deteriorating human rights situation and raise the case of Gao and other prisoners of conscience when he visits China in early November.”

President Donald Trump has ordered the release to the public of hundreds of documents related to the investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 in Dallas, Texas. The documents may shed light on what actually happened and put to rest the numerous conspiracy theories that have arisen over the years.
These theories generally deny the official conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and claim that everyone from J. Edgar Hoover to Fidel Castro were responsible for the death of the president. The Russians were also blamed as was the Mafia and the CIA. Now, the truth may finally come to light about the assassination.
