Vegas shooting: concert workers’ phone footage wiped clean by FBI

Vegas shooting: concert workers’ phone-footage wiped clean by FBI


by Jon Rappoport

October 13, 2017

Paul Watson at infowars has the story:

“Workers at the Route 91 festival during which Stephen Paddock unleashed his massacre have reportedly been given back their phones and laptops by the FBI only to discover that all messages and videos from the night of the attack have been wiped clean.”

“According to a Las Vegas resident who posted a status update on Facebook, ‘A bunch of people that worked the Route 91 [concert] said they got their cell phones back today. They all said that all their phones are completely wiped clean! All messages and info from that weekend are completely gone. Anyone else experience this’?”

“’A few different people who were vendors there are all saying the same thing,’ the woman later comments.”

“Later in the thread, a Route 91 worker confirms the story, commenting, ‘Of course. It’s an active federal crime scene. They can wipe it clean. I was the beverage manager for the entire event. My laptop is wiped clean’.”


First of all, in a recent article, I demonstrated in detail why you can never trust what the FBI says about evidence in any investigation. There is a notorious history of the Bureau cooking and slanting and inventing data to support prosecutions.

Second, who says the FBI can take people’s phones and laptops, watch and copy the video footage, and then wipe it all away before returning the devices to their owners?

The FBI literally owns the crime scene AND any record of what happened at that scene? Baloney.

The obvious reason for wiping out the footage: it contained evidence that contradicts the official scenario. And most likely, that evidence revealed multiple shooters.

As Vegas cops, the FBI, and the owners of the Mandalay Hotel have changed and massaged the official narrative, one assertion has remained constant: there was only one shooter, and he was Stephen Paddock.

Law-enforcement pounced on that claim early on, without the slightest justification. Without interviewing multiple witnesses who state they saw other shooters.

“Okay, the mass shooting happened yesterday and we know there was only one shooter. That’s it. Don’t ask us any questions about this. Anyone who disagrees with us is spreading rumors and impeding the investigation.”

Admitting multiple shooters is admitting there was cooperation, collusion, conspiracy, a plan, and a purpose for that plan beyond “the lone gunman was crazy.” This is the door law-enforcement keeps slamming shut every time it opens.

And now we have reports that the FBI has wiped witnesses’ phones and laptops. No more footage of the shooting. No more evidence.

Let’s be clear: the FBI is impeding the investigation.

There is no Constitutional rule that states private citizens can’t investigate crimes. There never was. There never will be.

Law enforcement doesn’t OWN investigations.

If they did, every time a journalist probes beneath the surface of a crime and uncovers important information, the FBI could say, “Well, we just opened an investigation of that very crime, and therefore we want all your notes and we want you to cease and desist your inquiry. Shut up and go cover Sunday picnics.”

In most cases, law-enforcement doesn’t have to worry about mainstream reporters. Those denizens simply take dictation from local cops and federal cops and their stories appear in papers and TV news broadcasts wiped clean of independent thought.

That leaves the truth a wide open field.

Private citizens and non-mainstream journalists own that field, not through edict, but through default. Don’t blame us. If you were doing your jobs, we wouldn’t have to do them for you.

Your first rule would be: stop lying.

Destruction of evidence is a felony. Those concert workers whose phones and laptops were wiped clean had a felony committed against them. By agents of government who have sworn to uphold and protect the Constitution.

Thousands of smart lawyers out there will say, “Come on, there’s no way you could make a charge like that stick.” Well, maybe there would be a way, if enough of you decided there has been enough destruction of the Constitution and it’s time to stand up and be counted, come hell or high water.

Meanwhile, whoever can look past the lies and fabrications and distortions of a criminal investigation can say something because they saw something.

Here is a quick excerpt from my recent piece about the FBI’s stance on crime probes. It should give you a clue about the Bureau’s attitude and reputation:

April 20, 2015, The Atlantic: “…the Washington Post made clear Saturday in an article that begins with a punch to the gut… ‘Nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000,’ the newspaper reported, adding that ‘the cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death’.”

In the Vegas shooting case, the FBI is saying: Trust us. We’re the pros. We do investigations the right way. Now give us your cell phone so we can look at video footage of the shooting and make a copy and wipe your phone clean and give it back to you.

Don’t worry, be happy. All is well. The centurions are on duty.

    “Every politician, every member of the clerical profession, ought to incur the reasonable suspicion of being an interested supporter of false doctrines, who becomes angry at opposition, and endeavors to cast an odium on free inquiry. Fraud and falsehood only dread examination. Truth invites it.” — Thomas Cooper – (1759-1839)

    Sounds like Hillary and her cloth were busy wiping things clean. I knew she was involved with George Soros. I also heard Soros had 1.3 million in put options on MGM 8 weeks before.

    start at 6 minutes.

    • Abe says:

      If Judicial Watch taught us anything is what a bunch of lying crooks the DOJ, FBI, NSA, & CIA is!

    • Lilly Bullrun says:

      I read the story about Soros buying a huge amount of puts on MGM too. He owns around 5000 shares of MGM but insuring them from dropping would only require 5000 puts rather than 1.3 million! Considering Soros is a conservative investor, why such a huge bet on options that depreciate so fast? Is he just stupid with option bets? I don’t think he’s stupid at all! Why did he buy so much? I don’t know.

  3. Paul says:

    Most of us US citizens seem to be in a zombie state. For the FBI to do this is not only wrong on many levels, but it’s basically admission that the ‘official story’ is a lie – and it’s something that the ‘authorities’ did for 911 too (Pentagon). It’s utter madness that people accept this, just as it’s madness that they accept police brutality vs citizens, police aggression vs demonstrators, ‘free speech zones’, etc..

  4. Tim says:

    unconstitutional search and seizure. 4th amendment to the constitution. Agency sworn to uphold constitution and amendments.

  5. One of the star actors (witness) Jesus Campos is missing and/or never existed. He cancelled an interview with some fake news anchor and his house is guarded by a security guard.

    It seems they’re learning from their mistakes in past false flags and leaving nothing to chance.

    • CPP says:

      Learning? Say what? This cover-up couldn’t be much more transparent. See my comment below in reply to “watcher”. And it was actually five fake news interviews that were lined up before he went MIA.

  6. moonchell37gmail says:

    R u hearing this anywhere on tv?

  7. Josh Jordan says:

    Its because it was an fbi sting gone very very wrong n all the real shooters escaped. Steven was just the fall guy n also an under cover fbi agent. Now they call me crazy.

  8. From Quebec says:

    Why would the FBI wiped clean the concert workers’ phone-footage?
    It does not make sense.

    But it does makes sense if you committed the crime.

    what would be the point of making a clumsy false flag?

    • CPP says:

      This is the bulk of a comment I left in a thread on Jon’s previous Vegas article re the Campos story change and “200 bullets through the door”:

      It’s like people on the inside are gaming the official story. And now Jesus Campos is MIA after being set to do TV interviews. It’s as though they want the public to believe there’s a cover-up, then see how people group around (or can be manipulated into) believing different versions of what they think actually happened and who was behind it. Either that or there’s something messy going on behind the scenes and the cover-up is being sabotaged.

  12. Steve Trueblue says:

    It may be getting worse My penpal evidence suggests Google is practising a way of paralyzing PCs in England and Australia It happened to youtube simultaneously 2 countries. Turned off PC sound cards and froze video displays.Came with a strange error message and advice to reboot to cure the “problem”. Could easily be extended to android phones in the vicinity of a false flag. Simply paralyze the camera. Just a bit of Malware.
    Surely you are all expecting this?.

  13. the mean boy says:

    Even the NY Slimes and FUX news are saying that something doesn’t add up. The gun grabs will proceed though until they get the Australia style ban.
    The rough and rugged individualists of Amerikwa the Kwanstain won’t be doing a fucking thing about it either.

  14. DocKim says:

    Any idea how many injuries and or deaths were directly related to trying to flee the incident? I haven’t been able to find any documentation regarding injuries caused from stampede or someone falling hard on another person, causing injury. Thus far we’ve only been told about injuries and deaths caused from bullets.

    • Marlene Katz says:

      This is the most comprehensive article I found, with 98 pics: Las Vegas shooting joins hurricanes, earthquakes to list of our trials

      • From Quebec says:

        You know what Marlene, Las Vegas shooting, hurricanes, earthquakes and wildfires, could have been all orchestrated by the Shadow government and the Deep State. They have the technology to do that,

        Now, why would they do that? Well, they want to sabotage Trump agenda.

        WHY? Because they cannot let America to become Great again, because that will ruin their NWO agenda. What is needed to implement the NWO agenda is for the USA to be destroyed.

        • From Quebec says:

          In fact, they want to destroy all Western countries. They already did a good job in Europe.

          So now, what else will they do? Probably they will ignite Volcano eruptions.

          • Abe says:

            I’m glad I don’t live in Seattle any more. They’re about due to send another huge tsunami towards Japan.

          Sabotage Trump?
          More like they all play ball for the same team and its getting close to game over.
          The removing of youtube videos that contradict the MSM daily changing story. Only wakes more people up to the fact that they’re trying to hide something and things are not adding up.
          The sleeping sheep watching MSM can’t be that brain dead not to notice the ever changing timeline. Bottom line people are starting to see things for what they are ” one big fat lie” and they’re starting to catch on to this grand deception!

    • Theodore says:

      I would bet dollars to donuts that the FBI took care of that ‘use case’, too. Deny the user access to certain videos/images sitting in his iCloud account by hiding them from his view (technically not ‘deleting them’) — sure, an FBI agent (user) presses ‘yes’ to ‘delete this video from iCloud?’, but, in the world of BigData, ‘deleting’ is just ‘consumer speak’ for ‘hiding from the user’s view’.

      Also, ‘copies’ of the iClouded videos and photos probably already starting appearing very shortly after the incident began (within minutes or hours) in NSA’s storage servers in Bluffdale, Utah. So, the FBI and the other intel agencies would be working through that portal to selectively gather the evidence they need to concoct their ‘crazy lone gunman [conspiracy] theory’.

  17. alan foos says:

    Ok, but why would anyone give their electronic records to the FBI without first backing them up? I sure wouldn’t. But then…

  18. Vic says:

    From a forensic point of view the cell phone itself that recorded evidence plus the recording itself .. Is the evidence. The phone is linked to cell towers which place the phones location. Phone records as well establish the time the phone recorded the data . As such the phones/recording devices should not have been returned. They belong intact in an evidence locker. Stripping them of their data and returning them is destruction of evidence.

  19. Got Freedom? says:

    The first and fourth amendment free zone used to be just inside the border but it looks like it has expanded all across the land.
    Ever travel to Texas and get caught up in the secondary checkpoint? It is like a gas station that goes across the road and you have no choice but to pass through.
    The first and fourth amendments don’t exist in these zones. Got freedom?

    And, make sure you also watch the video in the article.

  22. Theodore says:

    Fleshing out my theory on there being multiple shooters — both human and human-operated drones carrying long rifles…

    Remember all that talk about the ‘jet fuel’ tanks on the OTHER SIDE of the concert venue — and the story about cutout Paddock attempting to shoot at them ‘with intent’ to blow them up? Well, those jet fuel tanks are sitting on an actual airport, not just some type of non-airport storage facility park. Has any mainstream reports mentioned the NAME of the airport?

    Well, the ‘Area 51 JANET’ (*) passenger jets — you know, the jets that fly the contractors to/from ‘Area 51′ every day, well, this is their home airport — McCarran International Airport. And, the JANET jets’ ‘hangar (parking) area’ FLANKS the OTHER SIDE of the concert venue. The Mandalay Bay hotel flanks the concert venue’s other OTHER SIDE. And, both flanks may each be about the same distance to the concert venue.

    (*) put ‘area51 janet’ (without quotes, of course) into the youtube search bar.

    In the following short video — taken from inside the airport — very near the JANET hangar area (the video is entitled “(AREA 51) JANET JETS INSIDE! (RISKY)”, you can see the Mandalay Bay hotel in the background:


    (the above video was posted by this user “ADVENTURES with Christian”: /channel/UCj1ttljM7VDEytVHgwNnMBQ)


    Now, here is something interesting… podcaster Vin Armani — ‘who knows those hotels [and Vegas generally] like the back of my hand’…

    His theory is the shots came from one or more small copter drowns each housing a long rifle — he thinks that they were housing only machine guns (I believe). But, IMO, said drones could just as easily housed long guns — like an AR15 — operating in semi-automatic mode.

    Watch here:

    “Vegas Massacre… weapons test for a new type of drone?” /watch?v=1ob1VfTaJpA

    In my theory, which I first started fleshing out last week (see:, I say that any REAL bullets actually fired into the crowd came from a long gun of the ‘one trigger pull, one bullet’ variety. That the various machine gun SOUNDs were playing from various SOUND speakers stationed throughout the vicinity — said SOUNDs being used to disorient the crowd — while human snipers and drown operators (thanks Vin) went to work. Since a copter drone can carry ‘anything’, I say they had semi-auto long guns and SOUND systems on them. BTW, my pet ‘sound speaker’ hunch is that some of the speakers I allege were used, were some of the speakers embedded in Las Vegas’s ‘Intelistreets’ street light lamp posts.

    So, as a possible multi-faceted scenario, in the annals of SpecOps ambush warfare tactics, I am meshing my theory with Vin Armani’s theory…

    * multiple human snipers and multiple human-operated drone snipers — each grouped in one or more teams (‘swarm drones’ anyone?) — each human/drone within a team operating using the ‘one shot, one bullet’ tactic in a ‘coordinated’ fashion. The scenario under test would be an Urban Warfare scenario — the taking-out of a few ‘enemy targets’ in a ‘sea of innocent bystanders’ — without causing very much ‘collateral damage’.

    * the drones flown out of their ‘home base’ — the highly-guarded JANET hangar area.

    * machine gun SOUNDs played at the crown — from various speakers — to disorient, confuse, and panic the crowd. (hunch: no machine guns firing machine gun bullets were used)

    * the drone flight altitude? up to as high as the 32nd floor?

    * FBI and Las Vegas Sheriff focus our attention on cutout Paddock and the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. (‘allow’ the citizen-journalist investigators to look-up, sure, but then, metaphysically and subconsciously, focus their minds ‘in the wrong direction’ and ‘on the wrong thing’, and, for good measure, rub all of that in their faces with a slow-rolling doling out of the cockamamie Paddock story.)

    Metaphorically speaking, we’re not living in 2017, we’re living in 2067. Start imagining big and thinking big like you’re living in 2067.

    That’s why I always advise people to upload their videos and pictures to: friends, sites like LiveLeak & YouTube, their own foreign based e-mail providers (eveyone should have an e-mail based in a foreign jurisdiction like Switzerland, Sealand, Russia or South Africa where US & Canadian court orders are just laughed at) before letting anybody know that they had possession of said video. It’s also a good idea to always carry an addressed, stamped envelope which you can easily pop your memory card into and put it in a mailbox to be delivered to someone you trust. This can help to thwart ‘the authorities’ from getting hold of your property; just deny having a memory card (it’s true, the postal system has it).

  24. Michelle says:

    I read they found found Kimberly S. body in the desert by area 51 as she was in Las Vegas helping others deal with the shooting incident. I’m inclined to believe this young lady did not die of natural causes.

  26. Markus says:

    In the weeks after we see headlines proclaiming a “deep post mortem study being performed on the shooters brain”. This statement bolsters the narrative of a single crazed shooter with some profound disorder that medical experts will find. Thank goodness they’re on the case; this should settle the matter neatly. Stay tuned for the proclaimation of cause and case closed. Move along…
