Unanswered Questions about the Las Vegas Shooting

It has now been over two months since the mass #shooting in #LasVegas.

Shortly after the shooting, #ISIS claimed responsibility. This claim was quickly dismissed by our mainstream media.

But in the two months that have passed, no other explanation has emerged.

The girlfriend of the shooter returned to the U.S. and spoke to the #FBI. But we don't know what she said.

The same questions we had two months ago have not been answered.

Was the Las Vegas shooting, indeed, a #terrorist attack? The girlfriend of the shooter is Filipino. Jihadi terrorists are active in the Philippines. Could some Filipino Jihadis have come into contact with the shooter and turned him to their way of thinking? Maybe it wasn't an ISIS attack, but could some other terrorists with a similar ideology have gotten to the shooter?

Did the shooter have help? The shooter had a lot of guns and a lot of ammunition in his hotel room. How could he have gotten all that stuff up there without hotel security noticing it?

Was there only one shooter? Several witnesses reported hearing shots from more than one gun. The mainstream media dismissed these reports as echoes from neighboring buildings. But was there really only one shooter? When the news cameras showed the shooter's hotel room, two windows had been broken out. Could there not have been more than one shooter?

There were a lot of unanswered questions after the Las Vegas shooting. Two months later, those questions are still unanswered.

10 Things to Know for Businesses Filing for Bankruptcy

The economy is doing well and may even boom if proposed tax changes are enacted. Nonetheless, a business may suffer reverses and need to file for bankruptcy. In 2017, many famous retailers sought bankruptcy protection, including The Limited, Wet Seal, Hhgregg, Radio Shack, Gymboree, and Toys R Us.
The “b” word isn’t pleasant but may be a fact of life for some businesses. Under one bankruptcy scenario (Chapter 7 for corporations, partnerships, and individuals), the business liquidates its assets, pays off creditors to the extent possible, and goes out of business. Under the other, more common, scenario (Chapters 13 for individuals; Chapter 11 for corporations and partnerships; Chapter 12 for family farms), there’s a reorganization where a plan of bankruptcy is designed to keep the business afloat. It is used to muster the business’s assets and pay off creditors under the terms of the plan, resuming operations with a clean slate.

Joint Statement from Leader McConnell and Speaker Ryan on Misleading Democrat Claims About Tax Reform

December 12017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) released the following statement on misleading Democrat claims that tax reform would lead to cuts in vital programs:
“Critics of tax reform are claiming the legislation would lead to massive, across-the-board spending cuts in vital programs—including a four percent reduction in Medicare—due to the Pay-Go law enacted in 2010. This will not happen. Congress has readily available methods to waive this law, which has never been enforced since its enactment. There is no reason to believe that Congress would not act again to prevent a sequester, and we will work to ensure these spending cuts are prevented.”

CORKER STATEMENT ON TAX REFORM LEGISLATION

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement.
“My concern about the impact a rapidly growing $20 trillion national debt will have on our children and grandchildren has been a guiding principle throughout my time in public service. And during my 10 years and 11 months in the Senate, I have consistently fought for fiscal discipline in Washington.
“I have authored comprehensive legislation to address America’s debt crisis, including the Commitment to American Prosperity (CAP) Act and the Fiscal Sustainability Act. I also have taken some really tough votes against very popular policies, including appropriations bills, budget resolutions, defense authorizations, disaster funding, and even a veterans’ bill. 
“But at the same time, I have consistently advocated for pro-growth tax reform. And in my view, these are not mutually exclusive priorities.
“From the beginning of this debate, I have been a cheerleader for legislation that – while allowing for current policy assumptions and reasonable dynamic scoring – would not add to the deficit and set rates that are permanent in nature.
“I worked closely with Senator Toomey to negotiate the budget agreement that paved the way for this legislation. And I have worked diligently over the past few weeks with Senate leadership and the White House to make improvements.
“While I support a number of the provisions included in this legislation and continue to believe it would have been fairly easy to alter the bill in a way that would have been more fiscally sound without harming the pro-growth policies, unfortunately, it is clear that the caucus is in a different place.
“This is yet another tough vote. I am disappointed. I wanted to get to yes. But at the end of the day, I am not able to cast aside my fiscal concerns and vote for legislation that I believe, based on the information I currently have, could deepen the debt burden on future generations.
“I thank the administration, Senate leadership, and members of the tax-writing committee for working with me in good faith, and as I shared with President Trump when I called him a short time ago, I will take a close look at the product developed in conference before making a decision on the final legislation.”
