Something doesn’t add up here.
The Las Vegas police just announced that there was no motive behind the deadly shooting – the deadliest shooting on American soil – that took place in Las Vegas last October. The shooter, Stephen Paddock, killed 58 people that night. And yet, he apparently had no motive in doing so.

One congressman seems to know something the rest of us don’t, however. Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania was on Fox News with Tucker Carlson and revealed that he has information that ISIS may have inspired the Vegas shooting. Here’s what he told Tucker: “Recently, I have been made aware of what I believe to be credible evidence, credible information regarding potential terrorist infiltration through the southern border regarding this incident.”
When pressed by Tucker, Rep. Perry elaborated: “Twice before the attack, ISIS warned the United States that they would attack Las Vegas in June and August, and after the attack claimed responsibility four times. Meanwhile, the local law enforcement investigative services are telling us there is no terrorist connection, lone gunman, again, something is not adding up.”

This is an incredible assertion, especially from a sitting member of Congress. Mind you, both the FBI and Department of Justice have failed to find an ISIS connection in the shooting.
So what are we supposed to believe? Was there really no motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in American history?
