So this guy disappeared.
He was supposed to be on a couple of shows and then – poof.
Then he shows up on Ellen.
Something caused that to happen then, eh? Wouldn’t you think, something caused that?
The mystery is over: Las Vegas security guard Jesus Campos has been found.
On the set of “Ellen.”
DeGeneres tweeted a photo of Campos holding a cane on the set Tuesday alongside maintenance engineer Stephen Schuck, who was also shot at by the gunman on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

The news ended five days of speculation over the whereabouts of the security guard, who was shot as he passed outside gunman Stephen Paddock’s hotel room and who holds important information on who knew what and when as the shooting rampage got underway.
Reporters had been looking for Campos to help explain what happened in the moments before Paddock began firing at the crowd assembled for a country music festival opposite the hotel — and how long it took for police to respond.
Appearing in a gray suit and with a cane, Campos said he got an alert for an open door on the 32nd floor. He went up a stairwell from the 31st to the 32nd floor, but the stairwell door was blocked — apparently by the gunman — so he had to take another route to get to the floor.
When he got onto the 32nd floor and reached the stairwell door — which was inside a small room with two doors that separates the stairwell from the hallway, immediately adjacent to Paddock’s suite — Campos found a “metal bracket” blocking the door to the stairwell.
He said he called security dispatch to transfer his call to the building’s engineers, who sent an engineer to examine the door.
“At that time I heard what I assumed was drilling sounds,” Campos said. (Officials have said that Paddock appeared to be drilling into a wall inside his room for unknown reasons.) As Campos walked down the hall, away from Paddock’s suite, the outer door of the access room, which was unblocked, closed loudly behind him.
“I believe that’s what caught the shooter’s attention,” Campos said. “As I was walking down, I heard rapid fire, and at first I took cover.” The gunman was shooting through the door of his hotel suite. “I don’t know how he was shooting.”
Campos felt a “burning sensation” and went to lift his pant leg up and, seeing blood, realized he’d been shot.
“That’s when I called it in on my radio that shots had been fired,” Campos said. “I was going to say that I was hit, but I got on my cellphone just to clear that radio traffic for — they can coordinate the rest of the call.”
Engineer Schuck, responding to Campos’ earlier call about a blocked door, arrived on a service elevator from a higher floor, and he spotted Campos at the end of a hallway. It was quiet as Schuck walked toward Paddock’s end of the hallway. Then he saw Campos and heard gunshots.
“At the time I didn’t know it was shooting; I thought it was a jackhammer,” Schuck said.
Campos said “take cover, take cover,” Schuck said. “Within milliseconds, if he didn’t say that, I would have got hit…. They were passing behind my head, and I could feel pressure.”
One female guest came out of her room, and Campos told her to take cover in her room.
Campos thanked the first responders and the community for their work during their “darkest hour.”
DeGeneres hinted that Campos would not be giving any more interviews after appearing on her show, but that the appearance was unpaid.
“You’re talking about it now and you’re not going to talk about it again,” DeGeneres said, adding, “We of course wanted to give you money, and you both were very, very specific. You said you don’t want money, you don’t want money at all, so you’re not getting any money.”
Speculation about Campos’ whereabouts had begun after he mysteriously left a Las Vegas hotel room Thursday where he was preparing for televised interviews on the Sean Hannity show on Fox, as well as news shows on CNN, CBS, ABC and NBC. No interviews took place.
David Hickey, president of the Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America union that represents the security guards at Mandalay Bay, told The Times that he was attending a meeting with MGM representatives in one room of the suite as Campos waited with a security guard — hired by MGM — and another union member in the living room.
When the meeting ended about 2 p.m., Hickey said Campos no longer was in the room.
“When I got in touch with the other union member, I was told Campos was taken to the Quick Care” health clinic, Hickey said.
Hickey didn’t hear from the guard afterward and announced to a scrum of reporters that night that Campos had canceled interviews. Campos didn’t contact his union in the days after he walked away.
The company that owns the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino issued a statement Tuesday that implied it was in touch with Campos as questions mounted over the Las Vegas casino’s response to the mass shooting.
“Jesus Campos wants to tell his story at a time and place of his choosing,” Debra DeShong, a spokeswoman for MGM Resorts International, said in a statement after the Los Angeles Times requested an interview with him. “He’s asked that everyone respect his request for privacy. We could not be more proud of Jesus.”
Las Vegas police initially stated that Paddock shot Campos through the door of his hotel suite on the 32nd floor midway through his attack on the concert, essentially crediting Campos with turning Paddock’s attention away from the Route 91 Harvest country music festival across the street.
But police later said that Campos was shot six minutes before the attack began, and then officials changed their story again, stating that Campos was shot moments before Paddock began his attack on the concert.
Okay so this is all weird, right? Something weird, that you would expect in a weird situation, right?
The guy gets ready for interviews, then cancels all interviews and disappears, then resurfaces and does an interview with Ellen – after having just appeared in her studio – and says he’s not doing anymore interviews.
As was stated by Ellen on Ellen – these people get paid for these interviews.
If he has nothing to hide, than what is the deal? Who cares?
The guy looks nervous. I mean, okay, I get that this would be stressful – getting shot, being associated with the biggest mass shooting in history. But this guy is a grown man. And he comes from the single most violent society in the world (yes, “Latinos” are more violent than blacks, probably because they’re better at it and less lazy). And it’s been more than two weeks.
This whole interview is weird.
He looks confused about his own story. Ellen looks like she’s coaching him. As if someone told her – “look, this guy is having a lot of stress, here’s what he’s going to say – run through this with him. Here’s a visual aid.”
And that would make sense, and fit into all of our theories.
- This guy signs up for a bunch of interviews after the police tell him he can
- Spooks come and are like “no, you’re not doing those interviews”
- Something happens over a period of days, in which he is scared (spooks can and do very weird things to people; I’m not necessarily saying this guy was kidnapped and tortured – that is honestly too old school)
- He is then brought to Ellen by a spook who claims he’s his “lawyer” – or, conversely, he could just say “look, I’m with the FBI”
- The spook talks to Ellen and gets the whole story right (the exact story the FBI has currently been pushing)
- The discrepancies between the FBI story and the MGM story are not even addressed (it isn’t clear in the Jesus interview when the shooting started – FBI/Clark County Sheriff says 6 minutes, MGM says immediately – Ellen doesn’t ask which it was, even though he would obviously be able to answer that question and that answer would carry a lot of weight)
- The interview is pre-recorded and they’re allowed to make sure everything is how it should be
And then, of course, there are no more interviews.
Putting it all on one extremely controlled interview makes the most sense for a guy who doesn’t understand his own story.
So, okay – that’s a “conspiracy theory.”
But what is the other “theory”?
That this is all exactly what it looks like?
That he just disappeared for no reason?
I mean, they put out the story that “maybe” this guy is an illegal immigrant and is afraid of getting deported – but even Donald Trump isn’t going to deport this guy, and he has to know that. The FBI would be able to tell him, point blank: you’re not getting deported any time soon.
And why would Ellen not clear up the discrepancies between the FBI and MGM timelines? This is currently the biggest glaring weird thing surrounding this shooting, so unless she was told by someone not to ask that question, surely she would ask it?
Just for anyone who doesn’t know here: she has a team of people. So even if she’s too busy munching carpet to read headlines, she has a team of at least ten people who can put together the questions for her.
There is zero reason not to ask that question.
Just like there’s no reason for him not to want money for this interview – you see that she makes a point to say “you don’t want money” – that is to explain why he’s not doing other interviews. Because if he took the money, then people would be like “okay, why’s he not taking money for more interviews, where the interviewer will actually get information from him?”
This is all part of a cover-up.
This guy, Stephen Paddock, being some kind of an asset of the CIA is the simplest explanation. He did the shooting either because he converted to Islam, or because he’s a super shitlib. Or maybe he was MKULTRA.
I wrote about my thoughts on this event in detail a while back, and there isn’t really much new information since then, other than this interview, which is total bullshit and only goes to show one single thing: there is something very serious going on here, and it is actively being covered up.
