the las vegas shooting
a puzzle wrapped up in an enigma cloaked in a mystery
The rise of the world wide covid con has brought a lot of previous conspiracies to the forefront. One that’s now making waves again is the shooting in Las Vegas. At the time, this one caught my full attention and I spent the following months looking into it while the information was still fresh and uncensored.
When the 1964 Warren Commission report on the assassination of John Kennedy came out claiming that a single bullet had killed Kennedy and injured Texas Governor Connelly, I was not quite 11 years old. But somehow I knew there were problems with that report. As the years passed and more information came out, my latent questions led me to dig much deeper.
I suppose this is why anytime a questionable event takes place, like covidcon, I’m immediately dubious about any official narrative. This was the case with the massacre at the ill named Route 91 Harvest Festival which took place in Las Vegas on October 1, 20017 during which at least 60 people were killed and possibly as many as 800 wounded.
The official narrative about the Vegas shooting, as told to us by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), that a lone gunman, Stephen Paddocks, shooting from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort, is as bogus as the Warren Commission Report. What’s really hard to believe is how easy it is to prove it’s bogus.
Even though I’ll be linking legacy media documentaries that theoretically prove Stephen Paddocks guilt in carrying out this event, I’m confident that by the end of this series (maybe by the end of this post) you will be convinced that, like Lee Harvey Oswald, Paddocks was just a patsy.
Because of the noise of the concert, some of the most telling videos were taken by people moments before they were aware that a shooting was taking place - people thought they were just showing scenes of the concert but inadvertently caught important details. Some were taking videos of the crowd panicking as the shooting became apparent. Those also, inadvertently, captured critical information. Other videos were taken because the person holding the camera thought the shots were coming from a particular direction.
This is a really complex topic with a whole lot of moving parts. The greater story peripherally involves foreign governments, the CIA, former members of the Bush administration and very well known, very wealthy investors.
Satanism also appears to play a role.
Maybe not so surprisingly, that something bad was going to happen in Vegas on October 17, 2017 was announced on 4chan two weeks prior to the event.
As you read this it might prove helpful to keep in mind the old Vegas adage, ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’.
What I hope to do today is just cover the obvious information that can be obtained by looking at a few videos. Later we’ll consider those bigger players.
It’s helpful to understand the layout of the suite Paddock rented. The rooms Paddock rented are outlined in black in the floor plan above. Note the direction of the concert venue (the arrow is not accurate, but close enough) and the windows that were broken out. We’ll see this floor plan used in the NY Times mini-documentary (coming up) and in this interview by Ellen of security guard Campos and hotel engineer Shuck.
Campos says he heard the sound of a drill coming from the room. Ellen said, “they were gunshots but you thought it was just drilling sounds”. Campos responds “at first I think it was just drilling sounds…” he tries to say something more but Ellen cuts him off.
Turns out, he probably was hearing drilling sounds. One of the things shown in this series of photos from Paddocks room is a power drill. Why would Paddock be using a drill while in the middle of shooting up the concert?
more on those photos
Another odd item is a long, blue, flexible tube with a snorkel mouth taped to the end. Another thing to note is how purposefully the guns are scattered around all the rooms in the suite so that from any photo angle we see guns. Also note the floor to ceiling window broken out in the bedroom. Note that the window with the curtain partially drawn back does not look broken. If I’m not mistaken it’s broken in the video of LVMPD entry into the room. The speculative possibilities here are endless, but none of them do anything to support the idea that Paddock was here to shoot a lot of people at the concert. My speculation goes in the direction of this all being part of an elaborate hoax to set up Paddock. Maybe he was a gun dealer and he was in the hotel to do a deal and got used as a patsy. I’ll have more on the later.
back to ellens interview
Another important thing to note in the floor plan is the stairwell in the small room adjacent to the suite. We are told that security officer Campos came up the stairs to find out why the door to the stairwell was open for so long. Campos finds the first door at the top of the stairs barred, not open. He then goes back to the elevator, comes up to the 32nd floor and walks down the hallway to determine why the door to the stairway is barricaded. As he leaves, the outer door to the stair well slams shut. He claims that may have aroused the suspicion of the shooter and was shot as he was walking back down the hall away from the room. There was a video camera mounted in the eye lens of the door so the shooter knew he was shooting at a security guard.
Most of the following videos have been taken down by youtube. Five years ago, before they were taken down, I watched them many times. A few have been preserved in clips by other entities. One of those is a series of mini-documentaries made by the New York Times that claims to prove that Stephen Paddock was the lone shooter. Because these documentaries were apparently made by people who know nothing about guns, ammunition or investigative journalism, I find they serve very nicely to prove that Stephen Paddock never fired a shot from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay.
I should mention that I own a number of guns and have been an avid hunter all my life. My dad bought a Remington 12 gauge pump (870) for my 12th birthday and I’ve acquired a number of other guns since then. The point being, I know the sound of some of these weapons.
Because this event took place at night, muzzle flashes, or the lack thereof, are a critical component.
Another critically important aspect of the videos is the fact that not a single video shows any broken windows at Paddocks suite.
It’s helpful to understand that because the Mandalay Bay is shaped like an amphitheater that points towards the the concert venue, any rounds fired from anywhere in front of the Hotel will be amplified and projected towards the concert, drawing attention to the Mandalay Bay as the only source.
Apart from the first one, some of videos in this series deal with a shots coming from the Mandalay Bay, but from the ground in front of it, not from the 32nd floor. But I’m not saying that’s the only source. As I’ll point out in the future, there is compelling evidence that indicates shots came from helicopters and other sources.
the ‘security guard’? (has been taken down)
As the crowd becomes aware that a shooting is taking place and people are beginning to run around in a panic, this video shows a man wearing a security guard vest coming out from behind (under?) the stage holding what looks like an Uzi type machine gun pistol at his side. He quickly veers to his left towards the crowd, lifts his Uzi, sprays the clip into the crowd, then quickly disappears back behind the stage. Depending on the chambering, Uzis can shoot .22LR to 9mm. This one sounded like relatively small .22 LR rounds.
shooter on the ground in front of the hotel (taken down)
In this video someone thinks shots are coming from the Mandalay Bay and points their camera in that direction. The shots can be heard, but despite of the fact that it’s night, no muzzle flashes can be seen coming from the 32 floor. There are no broken windows, anywhere. However, there are muzzle flashes that correspond with the clearly audible gunshots coming from behind some landscape bushes in front of the Mandalay Bay. They sounded too loud to be an M16 or an AR15 firing a .223 or even a 5.56. My first thought was that it was an AK47 shooting typical 7.62x39mm ammunition or something of similar caliber and powder load.
the taxi driver (taken down but mentioned elsewhere)
A taxi driver parked in front of the Mandalay Bay is talking on his phone when gunshots go off near him. They sound very loud. He points his camera in the direction of the shots, which happens to be ground level in front of the hotel… behind some landscape bushes. The shooter can’t be seen but the video captures muzzle flashes coming from that area that correspond with the loud gunshots. Definitely too loud to be M16 or AR15. Again, more like AK47.
more muzzle flashes from the ground in front of the hotel (taken down)
This video was looking down the street towards the Mandalay Bay when shots were being fired. Muzzle flash can be seen coming from ground level in front of the Mandalay Bay - none from the 32 floor. No broken windows.
near the stage (part of NY Times doc)
A video taken after the shooting has begun and the crowd is well panicked briefly shows someone holding a cell phone with the time 10:07 clearly visible. Gunshots can clearly be heard. Someone nearby has been shot. The camera is being jostled around while shots are being fired. Several camera passes shows the Mandalay Bay. There are no corresponding muzzle flashes coming from the 32 floor of the Mandalay Bay, nor are there any broken windows. This video is part of the next one.
the new york times documentaries
The last videos in this series are the poorly thought out New York Times mini-documentaries. All of them are based on the official LVMPD narrative that all shots came from Stephen Paddock on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay. Contrary to what the Times proposes, I find this first one in particular to be a great resource for proving that not a single shot was fired from the 32nd floor.
The Times opens by saying that Paddock took a few single practice shots before going full auto. The clip used to make this point shows the Mandalay Bay while the shots are being fired, yet no muzzle flashes can be seen coming from the 32nd floor and there are no broken windows. Unfortunately, the stage blocks the view of the ground level in front of the hotel where other clips show muzzle flashes coming from the bushes. Furthermore, the rounds are clearly not from something like a higher powered AK47.
The discussion about range and trajectory calculations is a load of bull hooey. Whoever is shooting into the crowd is doing so randomly. They are not snipers seeking out particular targets in the crowd. They don’t care where their bullets hit.
The narrator explains “the changing pitch of the bullets” is due to Paddock spraying bullets around the area. More bull hooey. The pitch change is due to different caliber weapons being fired from different locations.
The narrator continues with the official but dubious story about Paddock having shot hotel security guard Campos in the leg though a closed door. Do I think he was shot? Yes. Do I think Paddock took break from running a drill to shoot Campos? No. Paddock was likely dead by then. Do I think someone else took a break from running a drill to shoot Campos? Yup.
The documentary then moves to the second, third and fourth bursts and we have several brief views of the 32nd floor - there are no muzzle flashes coming from there and no broken windows.
Then a police officer tells people to get down because gun shots “are coming from over there”, pointing to his right. Why does he say “over there” and point to his right? If the shots are coming from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, why didn’t he say up there and point up, to the 32nd floor?
Shortly after this we hear a smaller caliber automatic and one of the officer says, “there’s gun shots right here”. “Right here” would not be way up on the 32nd floor of the Hotel. The narrator says nothing about the sound difference or the officers comments.
The next gun burst is definitely a much larger caliber. The narrator tells us that’s the same burst as the previous one. No proof is offered. There are distinct differences in the sound level and numbers.
Then we hear shots coming from far away. Someone even says so. The narrator claims the shots came from Paddock firing rounds in his room. More bull hooey. The rounds fired at Campos look to be .223. Check out the shot-up door laying on the floor in the photos.
That’s followed by a lot of rounds being fired at the police by a smaller caliber automatic, possibly an AR15.
Then comes more rounds fired over taxi cabs by what sounds like a larger caliber gun like an AK47. The woman in the cab is not the same cabbie I mentioned earlier. She is further away whereas he was parked right next to the entrance to the Mandalay Bay.
The officers saying they hear shots coming from the floor above them is questionable. How come we don’t hear those shots?
During what the narrator calls the 11th burst we see footage of the hotel. Although the 32nd floor window is partly covered by vegetation we should still be able to make out muzzle flashes, but there are none. This sounds again like it could be AR15. No broken windows.
The last burst we hear is from something larger than an AR15. Possibly AK47.
Then we’re told the police are evacuating rooms on the 32nd floor. If someone was in the next room, or the floor above or below listening to rounds from a high powered rifle for nearly 10 minutes it seems like anyone in their right mind would have left right away. At the very least they would have complained to the hotel staff. None of that.
The video closes with a view of Paddocks room with details labeled that those pushing the official narrative want us to note: “rifles” (type unknown, but looks like AR15), “high capacity magazines” (looks like both AR15 and something like AK47), “AR15 style rifles”, “gun stands” (used by snipers, not someone shooting large bursts randomly into a crowd), “broken window behind the curtain”.
As to the broken window… why is there no glass on the floor? Why is the curtain closed?
Why are there no bullet holes from police returning fire? Because the police never returned fire. Because there was no one shooting from that window. Besides, they might have hit the guy who was busy running a drill.
Where are all the empty casings that should be littering the floor? We see a couple dozen, not the 11,000 rounds the narrator claims were fired. I don’t dispute the possibility that 11,000 rounds were fired during the concert, but I see no evidence that any of them came from this room. There has to be broken windows for that to happen and as all the videos clearly show, there were no broken windows during the shooting. How can the narrator say that 11,000 rounds were fired from this room while looking at a photo that shows only a few dozen casings on the floor, all of the same - small - caliber? Where are the guns responsible for the louder AK 47 type of rounds? Where are the guns capable of shooting those larger caliber clips? Where are those bigger casings?
In the lower right hand corner we can see the feet and lower legs of a body, supposedly Paddock.
In this MGM footage from security cameras we see Paddock taking numerous bags up to the suite. Keep in mind this was released to the NY Times by MGM, so we have to question how much is accurate and how much was left out. However, it does provide evidence that the opportunity existed to move a large amount of guns and ammo to the suite. If one is a gun dealer this would be expected. By the way, it’s not illegal to take guns to rooms in Vegas.
In this video we see the police breaching Paddocks room. The camera guy is late to enter the room. What transpired in the first seconds of the first people entering the room? Did windows get broken?
By the time the camera guy gets in it’s anticlimactic. No shots are fired, except for one accidentally fired by an officer who was surprised when an explosive used to breach a door goes off. How professional.
As one officer clearly states, “this guy has been dead for a minute”. Anyone familiar with popular slang knows that ‘a minute’ can be hours or longer. I’ll be presenting evidence showing that he has in fact been dead since well before the concert began.
Do I think the body the police found was Stephen Paddock? Who knows?
Do I think he may have taken a lot of guns and ammo up to the suite? As the previous documentary shows, that seems possible.
If he never shot anyone, why would he have hauled 23 guns and thousands of rounds of ammo up to that suite? The short, possible answer is, just like Oswald, he was set up as a patsy - possibly in this case, a dead patsy… possibly. The longer answer is where this story gets interesting and where gun dealing, the previously mentioned helicopters, other shooters, satanism, big time players and lots of money all come into the picture.
As some of you may know, the shooting at the concert was not the only one that occurred that night.
Did I mention this story has a lot of moving parts?
