Questions swirl in the Las Vegas mass shooting

Questions swirl in the Las Vegas mass shooting

by Jon Rappoport

October 2, 2017

Sunday night Las Vegas shooting at country music concert. Shooter in a high room at the Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel, a long distance away. Deadliest mass shooting in US history. 518 wounded, 58 dead.

With the body count and wounded numbers rising, and the concert shooter, Stephen Paddock, dead, here are a few questions:

What weapon was he using? That is important in deciding whether Paddock could, from a significant distance, inflict the reported destruction of life. Or whether, as earlier reports/rumors suggested, there was more than one shooter.

At least ten weapons were found in the shooter’s hotel room. He had checked into the Mandalay Resort Hotel several days earlier. How did he bring in all the weapons? Disassembled? Did he have prior experience with weapons?

In an interview, Paddock’s brother said he was absolutely shocked, and his brother, Stephen, was “just a guy.” No motive, no reason to go on a rampage. True? False? What turned him into a killer? Had he ever been under psychiatric care? Had he been prescribed, for example, SSRI antidepressants, which are known to push people over the edge, into homicidal violence? If he was “just a guy,” did that include significant experience handling weapons? Was he capable of bringing all or some of the weapons into the hotel in pieces and then assembling them?

The Guardian: Paddock’s brother said, “He’s not an avid gun guy at all. The fact that he had those kind of weapons is just – where the hell did he get automatic weapons? He has no military background or anything like that. He’s just a guy who lived in a house in Mesquite, drove down and gambled in Las Vegas. He did stuff. Ate burritos.”

Police reports seemed to indicate, at first, that police broke into Paddock’s hotel room and killed him. Then the press were told that Paddock committed suicide as the police entered, or before they entered.

For a time, police were searching for Paddock’s friend, companion, roommate (?), Marilou Danley. Reports then suggested they had her in custody. But a later report indicated she was overseas, and the police were satisfied she had nothing to do with the shooting. How were the police able to determine that so quickly? Her absence from Las Vegas would not rule out the possibility she was involved in the planning.

Then we have this: “CAIRO, Oct 2 (Reuters) – Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a shooting that killed at least 50 people and wounded over 400 in Las Vegas early on Monday, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.”

“’The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition’,” the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.”

“’The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago’,” Amaq added.

True? Bogus? An ISIS attempt to take credit for an attack, with which they had no connection?

Earlier this morning, I came across a tweet which I can’t locate anymore. It named another Stephen C Paddock, who is 44, who has been convicted of several crimes involving lewd acts on a child and child molestation—11/28/01 (South Carolina), 4/06/94 (Indiana), and 11/09/89 (Indiana). The tweet included what appeared to be a screen shot of an official law-enforcement document, also indicating that this Stephen Paddock had been confined, at one point, in a South Carolina mental institution.

Then there is the story of a concert goer who was warning people before the shooting that they were all “going to die.” Who is she? Is she involved?

The Express (UK): “One woman, who was at the Route 91 music event, claimed an unidentified woman had told other concert-goers they were ‘all going to die’ after pushing her way to the front of the venue…The witness, 21, told local news: ‘She had been messing with a lady in front of her and telling her she was going to die, that we were all going to die. They escorted her out to make her stop messing around with all the other people, but none of us knew it was going to be serious’…She [the winess] described the lady as Hispanic. The lady was escorted from the venue along with a man. The unnamed witness, who was attending the event on her 21st birthday, described the pair as short, both around 5 ft 5ins to 5ft 6ins tall, and looked like ‘everyday people’.”

In every one of these mass attacks, average news consumers assume the police and the media “have the story right,” and all remaining questions are “just details that will eventually be worked out.”

That’s not a wise assumption. It’s especially not wise when connected major agendas are on the line: removing guns from all citizens; accelerating militarized police presence in every aspect of daily life; keeping citizens in a state of anxiety, inducing their decision to stay at home behind locked doors and not venture out; reduction of public events of all kinds; degradation of the economy.

Such agendas can result in violent events which are not what they seem to be.

    The latest MK-Ultra false flag patsy? The ISIS story claiming he was working for them has been debunked quickly. Is it Antifa gearing up for their Civil War 2.0 on November fourth?
    The housekeeping didn’t notice the arsenal and shooter’s platform by the window?
    No one heard the windows blown out or saw the glass falling to the street?
    He just snapped they say but he was at the Mandalay for a week and did some extensive planning and preparation.
    Look for TSA style gropings and x-ray search of bags for anyone staying at a mote/hotel/ motor lodge.
    Travel now and visit bucket list destinations while you can since there will be restrictions on travel in the future
    The Communist Party USA aka the democrats are already clamoring for gun control.
    The don’t want the serf peasants armed for the mandatory feelings über alles equalocracy diversitopia that is coming.

  2. Things have not been going well for the globalists. Deep State is very desperate …

  3. Dana Doran says:

    Nothing is EVER as it seems, is it? We’re all just being herded into a corner…

  4. Cathy says:

    There are a lot of unanswered questions here, as there always are. Even 16 years after 9-11 there are unanswered questions and alternate theories as to who did what and why. Will the public ever know the truth? This event probably should not have been in such an easily attacked area for a sniper. Maybe when such events are planned in such locations, a little extra bag checking would be in order. Otherwise, they should be held in more secure locations. Sorry to say it, but America is not the America of a few decades ago. We will have to learn to live with a little more security, but not to the extent of a military presence everywhere.

    • Wally says:

      You can take your “little extra security” and shove it. Take that slave talk elsewhere.

      • Marilyn Guinnane says:

        Wally, I’m with you on this. NO “extra security”. We’re being set up to “expect it”, as has been pointed out. Even so, please be a bit more polite to Cathy. You might even want to apologize for telling her to ‘shove it’. Eh? Blessings.

      • Terri says:

        I agree Wally, what a stupid response, dont know how cathy had the brains to read this blog and post anything. As a wise man once said, “He who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither.”

        • Argentwind says:

          At the end of the day, you and I are ALL going to get blasted, no matter what we believe in, how we live, what we say or do. THAT is the reality of the situation. It isn’t a real pretty thing to have to face, but it is the truth in the end.

          “Only a fool believes he will live to see the sun rise”.


    • Even if this was a real event (which I highly doubt), you would have us give up more of our freedom for more ‘security’. You like most, are not fit to be called American.

    • Mallikarjuna Sharma says:

      I agree extra security is needed. But at the same time serious and impartial investigation should be there when such unforeseen unfortunate incidents occur and if the 9/11 attacks themselves are not criminally investigated so far who believes this government and this police. I think an international inquiry is needed by international experts in this incident also.

  5. Sue Dayton Nicholoy says:

    average news consumers …at least there are fewer and fewer of them as each year passes. One can hope that one day, before it is too late, that folks will simply call bullshit when they see it rather than see something say something.

  6. Jennifer says:

    Looks like an inside FBI/CIA op to me. I’m still back at the Oklahoma City bombing and wondering why all the FBI were out of the office that morning.

    • Marilyn Guinnane says:

      Jennifer: RIGHT ! Moreover, no truck of fertilizer brought the Murrah Bldg. down. It was controlled demolition. With the OK City bombing in the forefront of my mind, on 9-11 I IMMEDIATELY knew that those bldgs. were being purposely demolished in controlled demolition, falling into their own footprint. In addition, aircraft WOULD NOT disappear into steel & concrete bldgs. like a hot knife into soft butter. They would disintegrate upon impact.

      There was no investigative reporting done in either of those catastrophes. Tim McVeigh was mind-controlled. That’s why he was hurriedly murdered before he broke with programming and told the truth.

  7. Sollard Surman says:

    assert you should look at what the shooter needed money for and that he got by killing himself

  8. elliottjab says:

    Jon, u nailed it again… Especially seeing that disappeared tweet of Paddock (likely him); LEOs could easily verify.

    I too, questioned his possible/probable current meds – and sad to say – another False Flag event.

    ‘Collateral’ damage means nothing & Vegas is prime venue for ‘crisis actor’ pick up.

    Whole thing smells.

  9. Reblogged this on amnesiaclinic and commented:
    Excellent analysis.

  10. voza0db says:

    Well, if ISIS claimed that than it can only be a MOSSAD/CIA operation. Don’t forget that Puerto Rico is DYING and a distraction is needed! And Puerto Rico is not the only situation…

    • denward13 says:

      Everyone is talking about the devastation of the hurricanes to Puerto Rico, and no one is talking about the devastation by the wall street banksters! Hurricanes were just the coup de gras, looted and bankrupted them, now kill them all through starvation and geo-engineered genocide. Read an article yesterday that 10% of US population are psychopaths, pedophiles predators and parasites.

      • voza0db says:

        Guess who wrote this “poem”…

        “September 25: It’s old electrical grid, which was in terrible shape, was devastated. Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars owed to Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with. Food, water and medical are top priorities – and doing well.”

        Slaves get, what slaves want!

    • From Quebec says:

      Puerto Rico is DYING because of the greed of leftist truck drivers on strike till they get 50$ an hour.

      The truth about Puerto Rico, This man speaks the truth!

  11. voza0db says:

    “He had checked into the Mandalay Resort Hotel several days earlier” Isn’t the room service mandatory?

    • Marilyn Guinnane says:

      vozaOdb: No, having one’s room cleaned is not mandatory. I never let them in except every few days.

      • Jenn says:

        They said he was in the room for three days and also said he was out there gambling for 8 hours the day before midnight hours of the shooting so it can’t be both. Where’s is the surveillance footage and why did the police not explain the high powered bullet holes going into the collapsed door laying on its side at the breached entrance. Those shots were going into the shooters area not out of. And if you look at the crime scene there’s not thousands of casings as you’d expect there’s tons of left over ammunition and there’s fresh blood and older blood around paddocks head with planted casings one clearly has blood on the side of it proving it was placed there.

  12. voza0db says:

    The guys at ARUTZ SHEVA 7 (I love the “7”!) must have a direct line

    Reports of shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada
    Monday, October 02, 2017

    A number of wounded persons, including police, were shot by two armed men in Las Vegas, Nevada.”

    08:56 Jerusalem are 22:56 Las Vegas!

    That’s what I call EFFICIENCY!

    • Mallikarjuna Sharma says:

      If this is true, perhaps Mossad is criminally involved in planning and executing this attack as it was in 9/11 events according to many allegations.

      • Argentwind says:

        This one isn’t Mossad, this is Brotherhood- red roses.

        • Marilyn Guinnane says:

          Argentwind, I just listened to as Robt. David Steele interview wherein he says that (in his view) there were no Vegas bodies. I disagree with him. This is the 1st shooting whereupon I haven’t thought the entire thing was crisis-actor-faked. But Steele is pointing the finger at Sheldon (is it?) Adelson and Michael Chertoff, saying that they set the Vegas shooting spree up to make money because they sell that equipment that drives everyone nuts, you know: security garbage. Steele said, as well, that the whole scenario was done for reasons Jon has opined.


  13. Janie M. says:

    Jon, this may be the S.C. mugshot you saw… the perp was a pedophile. Don’t know if this is the LV shooter. Only current photo, his eyes are closed.

  14. From Quebec says:

    t stinks to high heaven

    Definitely just another False Flag by the Shadow government and the Deep State who is trying to take your guns,start a civil war, install Martial law and kick out Trump
    They are so desperately losing the game, they will do anything and everything to crush the people opposing the NWO.

    Many articles and videos at on Sunday night Las Vegas shooting

    • Padraigin Eagle says:

      ‘Tis a standard fare hoax, crisis actors and assorted jokes, none died, many crocodile tears spied, bought and souled, Robbie Parker’s and Stevie Paddock’s, tax payer shekels ensure the bank accounts well-stocked, how many charades on centre stage do the Cabal have to pull before eyes wide shut become awakened to the lame stream bull, every week a scam, until the asheep awaken, it will be the Kalergi plan.

    • Terri says:

      Quebec, this was an interesting article about the shooting. Don’t know enough to say for sure if all info is true, but much of it is. I like reading different perspectives.
      some good pics in it.
      Here is the back story and some info about Trump i don’t think many people know. I thought you might appreciate it.

  15. denward13 says:

    How is it that the media had all their assets in place, and that scum presstitute reporter Alex Stone of ABC news was reporting live at 11 pm last night citing multiple shooters and locking down the whole town within a 1/2 hour to 40 minutes ? Somebody needs to waterboard that scumbag as to why he was there and what did he know prior to the incident. How is it he is always conveniently at the site of these incidents reporting live within minutes? He has been all over the country recently reporting on anything and everything with death, disaster or division?

    • Padraigin Eagle says:

      Alex Stone, his cover blown, the resident hoax reporter, a presstitute doing what his masters say he oughta, the inside line on the crisis actor dime, lame stream lies, it’s ABC for those that have eyes.

  16. scot says:

    Who ever did this shot from the 32nd floor, does anyone else see the meaning in that, should tell you that this was a stage event. this poor guy was picked as the shooter , to many loopholes .

  17. Barbara says:

    Coincidence? Route 91 Harvest Country Festival… date: 9/1.

    • Barbara says:

      My mistake on the date, however, the 10th month makes the timing 11… route 91, month 10, day of 1 = 911.

      • scot says:

        could be, check out SK Bains book on 911 and the occult

        • Barbara says:

          Thank you, Scot, it’s actually…. my heart is so frazzled… a 9:11:11 if we include the year.

          • scot says:

            well I live in LV so this all sounds off to me, I forgot to add the Luxor ( pyramid and a obelisk ) across the street from shooting to go with the 32nd floor.

          • Argentwind says:

            Was the Light at the Luxor (brightest light in the world) on at the time or was it dark?

  18. wordsofwisdomfromanoldfart says:

    58 dead, the greatest mass shooting on American​ soil. Hm, lets see now 58 times 365 days in a year = 21,170. If 58 people were killed every single day in a years time, that would be 21,170 people dead, a great disaster! How many people die from Iatrogenic mistakes and from overdosing drugs made from big pharma every year? How many humans have been killed by governments sticking there nose in sovereign countries business, in the form of wars, where they had NO business being, all for the sake of Imperialism People, make sure that you can protect yourself and your loved ones from these criminals!

    Here is one anomoly nobody mentioned: the tv networks kept showing a clip of muzzle flashes on a floor FAR below floor 32!

  20. Ha'ashkee Ndaa'Ke'O'N'dee says:

    Think a little more “asymmetrical.” Russia has MK-Ultra-like assassins or old fashioned “dupes” who could very easily have done Las Vegas yesterday – they are here now in the U.S. Even if Russia didn’t do Las Vegas, no one believes that Stephen Paddock was the lone gun-man. Now ISIS is claiming blame for the attack. Well, ISIS is an American operation. The whole thing is more than likely a brilliant asymmetrical response by Russia to the U.S. targeting Russian military officers. They couldn’t possibly get away with it you think? Think again. A Polish intelligence officer wrote a book demonstrating that the Soviets were quite capable of assassinating targets in America, including Kennedy. Assassinating President Kennedy in response to the attempt on Nikita Khrushchev’s life in Minsk where “killer” Oswald spent his time in the USSR, was so “doable,” that the KGB sacrificed another mind-control pawn, Nosenko, in order to give the Americans an excuse to not point the finger at the Russians. Las Vegas yesterday was pay-back for the Russian officers no doubt about it. One more important thing, I live in Tucson and know that many Hispanics look Asian. Stephen “Lee Harvey” Paddock had an Asian girlfriend or Hispanic? Las Vegas was a “Special Op” no matter who did it.

    • Marilyn Guinnane says:

      Ha’ashkee etc., Russia isn’t out to ‘get us’ in any way, shape or form. Putin is quite possibly the most enlightened, peace loving leader the world has ever known. He has a very high soul score.

    • Chris says:

      Or, this will be blamed on Russia so the U.S. can use it as a pretext to stay in Syria and commence a shock & awe campaign against the Syrian army and their R+6 comrades who have helped Syria make incredible gains against IS and every other jihadi group of “moderate rebels”.

      Syria is close to taking back every inch of it’s territory and Israel, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. don’t like that at all which is why the U.S. tried with support for the SDF to capture a platoon of Russian military police. After that failed they killed the Russian General and two Colonels. The U.S. has been fighting the Syrian Army (SAA) since this war started. Since Russia came to Syria’s aid this has stopped. They now claim to be there fighting ISIS and that’s about over so U.S. has no reason for being there after their dreams of partitioning Syria and of regime changing Assad has died.

      The U.S. has been defeated in Syria and is itching for another reason to stay. Blaming this shooting in Las Vegas on Russia is an easy way for the U.S. to do that. I do hope not and perhaps not with the “lone wolf” story being touted.

      Peace to all–C

    • Mallikarjuna Sharma says:

      Dirty Russophobia but I think Israel deserves this honor.

      • Argentwind says:

        This one isn’t Mossad,, this is Brotherhood. Red roses in the basket out on the street- someone is desperate it seems.

  21. Rastafari says:

    more hoax. looks like they need to get the guns. stage. all actors.

    • Padraigin Eagle says:

      Exactly, Rastafari; and how long will it take, how many more hoaxes surved up on a staged plate, before the people see that it’s plain old Cabal perfidy, crisis actor duping delight in plain sight, rigged reality in the strobe light, with Tom Petty at 666, likely faking, the Bowie & co’ skyrocketing album sales tricks, as noted in the Matrix, they all be in on the fix!

  22. hscguineapig414895 says:

    The photo of him on CNN indicated a left temporal scar incision on his head. Something tells me he’s a unwitting subject of covert Manchurian Candidate developmental research. The cops should do a Cat Scan on his head, and lets see if he has 43 implants in the cerebral cortex, such as myself. I get the impression, such as Timothy McVeigh, Paddock is pissed with mind control intrusion, and blew a fifty amp fuse. I wish Trump would provide better transparency and accountability, when it comes to the covert CIA MK-ULTRA Manchurian Candidate developmental research upon unwitting patients. As long as we are using brain surgery for epilepsy as a front for covert CIA MK-ULTRA research, we can expect more outrage from those who have been secretly exploited and harmed.

    • hscguineapig414895 says:

      Another thing, interesting how Paddock is similar to the Rohinie Bisesar case in Toronto Ontario Canada, where a woman claims mind control technology was responsible for her stabbing another woman. V-2 skull? Remote Neural Monitoring? Long over -due as to address the CIA covert Manchurian Candidate developmental research imposed upon unwitting subjects.

      Uncool, there’s no need to defame Mr. Putin with this nightmare and carnage. If Putin was around Los Vegas, know doubt, he would have took aim at the those who were doing the shooting, and whacked them off. Mr. Putin is a good man, no need for this kind of insult. Terry […]

  26. Ton Nuiten says:

    The recent mass shooting in Las Vegas: there are many questions about Stephen C. Paddock. But what could be the motive? Could it be that this is again one of the opportunities for the U.S. government to confiscate the guns of all American citizens?

    • Terri says:

      Many motives Tom, satanists love a good sacrifice, and maybe they can convince people to give up their guns??? hint globalists; never gonna happen.
      you have to think like a morally bereft criminally insane individual to understand their motives.

    • Argentwind says:

      Very simple: blood sacrifice to the dark powers to gain energy. Waco, TWA Flight 800, OK City, MANY more same thing. If your master is starving, and demands food, what do you do? This.

    Suuuure….someone says that everyone is going to die, but doesn’t get a photo?? Doesn’t even ask someone with a phone to take her photograph… Suuuuure

    • Marilyn Guinnane says:

      Michael Garrison—I see what you’re saying. Still, no one took the woman’s photo because they didn’t take her seriously. If they had, they would’ve made an exit, post haste. If this ‘chicken little’ woman existed, what I’d like to know is what or who was her source?!
