[Editor’s note: I am just going to go straight ahead and say it – this entire narrative of Paddock and his arsenal of rifles shooting hundreds of people from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas is pure bullshit, never happened.
Paddock is the Lee Harvey Oswald of this case and just as Oswald and his broken Carcano played no role in the shooting of JFK, Paddock and his gun collection played no role in the events in Las Vegas.
There is one key difference however, in Dallas in 1963 real bullets hit real people and real injuries and one tragic death occurred; in Las Vegas in 2017 no real bullets were fired, no people were injured and no-one was wounded, it is all a ludicrous hoax complete with crisis actors, fake blood, laughable acting and a whole lot of bullshit and lying.
Therefore all the ‘revelations’ and ‘investigations’ that are being reported are a complete waste of time, just layers of psyop lies and red herrings to keep the conspiracy minded going for years, I expect in a decade’s time people will still be arguing over irrelevant minutiae of this case just as they did over planes or no planes after 9-11.
Bottom line, folks, ignore all of it, it is a complete and utter waste of time and nothing more than a deception trap designed to keep your attention away from what really matters – who is behind this false flag farce and why they carried it out.
In contrast to 9-11 where we knew after 45 minutes who was being blamed and why the event had happened – Afghanistan, with the motive of justifying more wars for profit and the introduction of the fascist Patriot Act, this time around little is clear. Obviously it furthers the Strategy of Tension, and had the desirous side effect of boosting gun sales, which have been markedly down under Trump; but any further, more significant repercussions have yet to show themselves.
BTW, if you want to own a slide fire type stock, as allegedly used by Paddock to ‘modify his legal guns into fully auto battle weapons’ then you better grab one now before they are all sold out and possibly banned. Ian]
Vegas Gunman Transferred $100K, Set Up Cameras at Hotel
The Las Vegas gunman transferred $100,000 overseas in the days before the attack and planned the massacre so meticulously that he even set up cameras inside the peephole of his high-rise hotel room and on a service cart outside his door, apparently to spot anyone coming for him, authorities said.
Meanwhile, investigators are taking a harder look at the shooter’s girlfriend and what she might have known about the attack at a country music festival, with the sheriff naming her a “person of interest”, Al-Jazeera reported.
The girlfriend, Marilou Danley, 62, returned to the United States from the Philippines on Tuesday night and was met at Los Angeles International Airport by FBI agents, according to a law enforcement official.
The official was not authorised to publicly discuss the matter and spoke to The Associated Press news agency on condition of anonymity.
Authorities are trying to determine why Stephen Paddock killed 59 people in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
They have been speaking with Danley, who was out the country at the time of the shooting, and “we anticipate some information from her shortly,” Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said hours before she arrived.
Lombardo added that he is “absolutely” confident authorities will find out what set off Paddock, a 64-year-old high-stakes gambler and retired accountant who killed himself before police stormed his 32nd-floor room.
Authorities released police body camera video that showed the chaos of the attack as officers tried to figure out the location of the shooter and shuttle people to safety. Amid sirens and volleys of gunfire, people yelled “they’re shooting right at us” while officers shouted “go that way!”
Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said the shooting spanned between nine and 11 minutes.
Paddock transferred $100,000 to the Philippines in the days before the shooting, a US official briefed by law enforcement but not authorised to speak publicly because of the continuing investigation told The Associated Press news agency.
Investigators are still trying to trace that money and also looking into a least a dozen financial reports over the past several weeks that said Paddock gambled more than $10,000 per day, the official said.
The cameras Paddock set up at the Mandalay Bay hotel casino were part of his extensive preparations that included stockpiling nearly two dozen guns in his room before opening fire on the concert below.
McMahill said the cameras included one in the peephole and two in the hallway.
“I anticipate he was looking for anybody coming to take him into custody,” Lombardo stressed.
During the Sunday night rampage, a hotel security guard who approached the room was shot through the door and wounded in the leg.
“The fact that he had the type of weaponry and amount of weaponry in that room, it was preplanned extensively,” the sheriff said, adding that “and I’m pretty sure he evaluated everything that he did and his actions, which is troublesome.”
Lombardo announced that the investigation is proceeding cautiously in case criminal charges are warranted against someone else.
“This investigation is not ended with the demise of Mr. Paddock,” the sheriff said, adding that “Did this person get radicalised unbeknownst to us? And we want to identify that source.”
In addition to the cameras, investigators found a computer and 23 guns with him at the hotel, along with 12 “bump stock” devices that can enable a rifle to fire continuously, like an automatic weapon, authorities said.
Nineteen more guns were found at Paddock’s Mesquite home and seven at his Reno house.
Video shot outside the broken door of the room shows an assault-style rifle with a scope on a bipod. The sheriff said an internal investigation has been launched to find out how that footage was obtained.
Some investigators turned their focus on Tuesday from the shooter’s perch to the festival grounds where his victims fell.
A dozen investigators, most in FBI jackets and all wearing blue booties to avoid contaminating the scene, documented evidence at the site where gunfire rained down and country music gave way to screams of pain and terror.
“Shoes, baby strollers, chairs, sunglasses, purses. The whole field was just littered with things,” said Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt after touring the site on Monday, adding that “There were bloodstains everywhere.”
More than 500 people were injured in the rampage, some by gunfire, some during the chaotic escape. At least 45 patients at two hospitals remained in critical condition.
All but three of the dead had been identified by Tuesday afternoon, Lombardo announced.
His studies in history and background in the media industry have given him a keen insight into the use of mass media as a creator of conflict in the modern world.
His favored areas of study include state-sponsored terrorism, media manufactured reality and the role of intelligence services in manipulation of populations and the perception of events.
