Another eyewitness to shell casings in the Tropicana parking lot following the 1 October shooting reveals the details in a candid interview.
A second Las Vegas resident was captured on video admitting that she found brass shell casings in the Tropicana parking lot the morning after the 2017 massacre which left 58 people dead at the hands of a single gunman named Stephen Paddock who allegedly opened fire on crowd goers who were attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival during Jason Aldean’s set on the night of October 1.

YouTube is removing videos and Facebook is blocking people from sharing, and in one case that I know of so far, actually banning people from sharing any news on the Las Vegas shooting that doesn’t toe the line and spew only the “official story. They are doing this under the guise of protecting the masses from “fake news.”
CHAOS OF REPORTING & LIBERAL MSM DOUBLE STANDARDS
Having done many live update articles about events that were ongoing, I can personally vouch for the fact that during the event in question, information is reported, corrected, edited and updated, with a note at the bottom usually saying corrections and edits are being made as new information becomes available…….. that is what I call the chaos of reporting during a live event.
Mistakes happen, not just to Independent Media, but some very high profile MSM personalities have incorrectly named suspects in initial reporting, just to have to issue corrections later.
A perfect example of this was the Boston Marathon bombing, where multiple MSM reporters, including Ross Neumann from Reuters, Vice and Digg, former Politico reporter, and now Senior reporter for CNN, Dylan Byers, all misidentified one of the bombing suspects. Another example is when The Daily Beast misidentified one of the San Bernardino shooting suspects.
No one accused these folks of deliberately publishing or sharing “disinformation,” because it falls under the category of “stuff happens,” during the chaos of reporting an ongoing event. Media outlets excuse these mistakes, offer corrections, and move on.
In the case of the Vegas shooter this past week, an Independent News site misidentified the shooter, inaccurately naming Geary Danley, who was the ex-husband of Marilou Danley, the woman that lived with the actual shooter Stephen Paddock, and all of a sudden what is considered chaos of reporting, and a mistake in the cases mentioned above when a MSM reporter or outlet does it, the left is screaming it was deliberate “disinformation,” and “Fake News.”
In the case of the Boston Bombing suspect, media outlets instantly highlighted that the MSM got the suspects name wrong because of some Reddit user, and in the case of the recent mistake by Gateway Pundit, they are accusing them of deliberately spreading fake news because of a theory posed on 4chan.
The only difference between the MSM misidentifying previous suspects and when Gateway Pundit did so, is the left and media outlets instantly blamed Reddit for “smearing” and innocent man when the MSM inaccurately reported, but in the case of the Vegas shooting they are blaming GP and calling it “fake news,” while accusing Facebook, Google and other platforms of allowing fake news to show up in their feeds.
No one said a word about that back in 2013 when the wrong person’s name was shared all over social media as a suspect for the Boston Bombing, or when The Daily Beast story named the wrong suspect in the San Bernardino shooting, but let an Independent Media site make the same innocent mistake and it is all of a sudden the crime of a century and demands for online censorship are blared in every headline.
Nice double standard there, eh?
FAKE NEWS VERSUS DIFFERING VIEWPOINTS
Facebook, Google and its video platform YouTube is now trying to appease the liberal media and leftists across the internet, while implementing measures to make them the “ministry of truth,” by tweaking their algorithms to remove what they determine is “fake news,” and in the process, under the guise of removing disinformation, they are also removing differing viewpoints if those views don’t align with the”official narrative,” being pushed by “authoritative sources.”
YouTube this week surfaced videos peddling misinformation, hateful messages and conspiracy theories to users searching about mainstream news events — problems that caused the site to change its search results to promote more authoritative sources.
For example, the fifth result when searching “Las Vegas shooting” on YouTube late Tuesday yielded a video titled “Proof Las Vegas Shooting Was a FALSE FLAG attack — Shooter on 4th Floor.” The video said there were multiple shooters in Sunday’s mass shooting, a claim refuted by law enforcement. Posted by a channel called the End Times News Report, it had amassed more than 1.1 million views in about 27 hours.
The video in question was taken by a taxi driver at the time of the shooting, showing what appeared to be muzzle flashes matching the timing of shots that could be heard fired. While some point out that a strobe light capturing those flashes was noted before the shooting started, and was not actually another shooter on the fourth floor, that is neither here nor there.
The point here is the video was highlighting something that appeared to be different from what was being reported, it was a differing viewpoint, taken live while events were occurring and was not put out to deliberately mislead, yet in response to criticisms that the videoreceived so much attention (now has 1.4 million views), YouTube is “accelerating the rollout of planned changes to its search engine,” by “promoting more authoritative sources in search results, especially for those about major news events.”
Jake Morphonios, who runs the End Times News Report along with a damaged-inventory-liquidation business in Kernersville, N.C., said the video eventually reached 2.5 million views. “It was a hot topic, of course, and was going to get some views anyway, but it really did get caught in [YouTube’s] algorithm and went viral from there,” he said. “Clearly it got into featured videos or something.” The 43-year-old said he has posted about 800 videos and typically gets about 5,000 views each.
Mr. Morphonios said YouTube gave his account its first strike for the video. YouTube terminates accounts that get three strikes within three months. He said he aims to offer viewers information on news events that mainstream news sources won’t. “I know I’m not as authoritative as The Wall Street Journal or New York Times,” he said. “I’m just a guy with a computer offering an opinion, and to get punished for that is draconian.”
We will get to those “authorative sources” later in the article.
YouTube is not only tweaking their search algorithms though, as noted in an email this morning by Tony over at A Minute to Midnite, YouTube is actively removing content that offers differing viewpoints, while Facebook is preventing sharing and has banned him from posting for a week because of his differing views.
Via the email:
Hi Susan, I made a 6 minute video the other day about the shooting. I used a screenshot of one of your articles in the videoand made sure it was clearly seen that it was ANP and you had written the article.
The video was up for about 2 days and had at least 34,000 views before Youtube took it down. Facebook also banned the video and has banned me from posting in any groups for a week.
I subsequently have uploaded the video to our A minute To Midnite website and written an in depth article analysing some aspects of the shooting……..
The article provided analysis and information widely known at this point, but the banned videodetailed what they saw as Illuminati connections, numerology, and number occult numeric sequences, which is also analysed in the article, and because they were highlighting what they saw as an Illuminati connection, because that is not an “official” narrative by liberals and the giant tech companies like Google/Youtube and Facebook, his video was removed and his Facebook account blocked from sharing anything for a week.
The two examples above are the deliberate censorship by YouTube and Facebook of differing views, while the one below, is an example of how fake news goes viral.
In March 2017, there was a robbery and shooting on the Vegas strip. A woman published a video from inside the Bellagio, showing how the hotel was in lockdown, describing bullets flying, hiding under a table, saying I don’t know what the news is reporting, but this is what is happening here.
After the recent Vegas shooting which killed over 50 people and injured over 500 others, multiple people have re-uploaded that older video, claiming it was from the night of the Vegas massacre, offering it as proof there were multiple shooters. Because of the inconsistencies in the news that has been made public, which has many thinking we are not being told the entire story and the police scanner audio from that night where an officer says “two active shooters” were confirmed, some independent outlets have reported on the re-uploaded video, believing it was new.
The original re-uploaded video came out on October 2, 2017, titled “Las Vegas Proof Not one Shooter Last Night,” with the video description stating “Video taken last night during hotel lockdown at the Bellagio by Rene Downs. Mainstream media not reporting correctly on situation in Vegas.” A search directly for Rene Downs brings up four videos, the original and three others uploaded yesterday, all incorrectly associating the Bellagio lockdown from March with the shooting on October 1st.
The point here is that we have seen this time and time again, where an event happens and old videos are re-uploaded with claims that they are new and related to a recent event, they go viral and next thing you know people are reporting on it.
A look through the account that re-uploaded the Rene Downs video on October 2, 2017, indicates the channel owner has differing views from the MSM official narratives, but was most likely sent this Bellagio video and told it was new, not a deliberate attempt on his part to mislead, but whoever sent it to them, was deliberately trying to push fake news.
There is no easy solution to con-artists, they exist offline and they exist online, it is a fact of life, but YouTube, Facebook and Google thinking they have the right to ban, block, hide and punish any narrative that doesn’t toe the official line, labeling them all “fake news,” is not the answer to preventing these types of online cons. Cons will happen, it is up to us, readers and writers, to dig deeper and find the truth, it is not up to YouTube or other tech giants to declare themselves the “ministry of truth,” and hide whatever they don’t want people to see.

According to top NSA whistleblower Bill Binney in this new story from Zero Hedge via Washington’s Blog, forensic evidence proves that DNC emails had to have been leaked, definitely not hacked, by a person with direct, physical access to DNC computers. Much more on this bombshell info tied directly to the death of Seth Rich detailed in the first video below.
Warning us that forensic evidence proves that not only was the capturing and doctoring of emails done on the East Coast of the US but that a MASSIVE cover-up is still ongoing, we take a look within this story at why such a cover-up could end with the biggest ‘false flag’ in US history as it has long been warned, a rabid animal is at its most dangerous when its back is against the wall. We also take a look below at a new video that’s now going viral featuring Russian President Vladimir Putin which shows us the real reason why a majority of ‘US military-supporting’ Americans approved of him over Barack Obama as ‘a leader’. First, from the Zero Hedge story.:
via Russia Insider:
A preliminary report published Friday by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) found no traces of any nerve agent at the site of a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma. The OPCW report states this unambiguously as follows:
“No organophosphorous nerve agents or their degradation products were detected in the environmental samples or in the plasma samples taken from alleged casualties.”
by Stephen Lendman, Stephen Lendman:
The alleged Douma CW incident never happened. The official narrative was fabricated.
Residents, medical personnel and Russian technical experts were unanimous in their judgment.
No attack occurred, no one ill or hospitalized from toxic CW exposure, no one dead, no one harmed in any way.
US, UK, French April 14 terror-bombing of Syrian sites was based on a Big Lie.
The OPCW’s fact-finding mission delayed its arrival in Douma for 11 days, falsely saying it was too unsafe to come sooner.

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — Investigative journalist and former police officer Doug Poppa told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday night that he was told from sources both inside and outside the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department that the ‘Homicide Division’ was pulled off the investigation into Stephen Paddock’s death early on for reasons unknown which is very odd, to say the least, as a suicide has to be investigated.
“Now, homicide detectives normally investigate homicides and suicides because you don’t know whether a suicide is actually a homicide until it’s investigated,” the former police officer explained. “They were pulled off the case and the case was given to an entirely different bureau commander.”

Authorities looking for a missing 4-year-old Georgia boy say his father and another man were training nearly a dozen children at a remote New Mexico compound to commit school shootings with assault rifles, reports AP.
While police didn’t find the toddler, Abdul-ghani Wahhaj – who went missing in December in Jonesboro, Georgia – authorities discovered 11 other children ranging in age from 1 to 15 years old held in “the saddest living conditions and poverty I have seen,” while the remains of a boy were also found on the compound which have not yet been positively identified by medical examiners.
Authorities say the father of the 3-year-old told the mother that he wanted to perform an exorcism on the child, and that he was bringing the boy to a park after which he never returned.

With the ‘sh*t getting ready to hit the fan’ according to former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino as shared in this new story from Gateway Pundit as what is being called the biggest political scandal in US history unfolds and threatens to take down parts of the ‘deep state’ and the Democratic Party, it’s not a coincidence that sentences such as “Is This The KGB?” are being thrown around by US Congressman who’ve seen ‘the memo’. Will the contents of it help confirm much of what the independent media has been reporting for the past decade+? The 1st video below is called “Is This USA Or KGB? Memo Shakes Foundations of US & Intel Community”.
While Donald Trump Jr. compared what happened during the run-up to the election to “what happens in Banana Republics”, Republican Rep from North Carolina Mark Meadows recently claimed “I thought this would never happen in a country that loves freedom”. Yet as the alternative media has been reporting on for years, ‘America’s KGB’ has been in our faces for a long, long time now, tracking our every move online and out in public. So, why is Meadows surprised?
As Bongino points out in the series of tweets seen screenshot both above and below and as has been echoed by numerous Republican Congressmen, our minds are about to be blown and our eyes opened as an entire series of abuses by the Democrats comes to light, abuses they believed would forever be hidden with the election of Hillary Clinton.
And while Rep. Matt Gaetz claims the memo being released soon will lead to ‘heads-a-rolling’ within the FBI and DOJ, as this new story from Joe Hoft over at Gateway Pundit asks, “When Will the Good Guys in the FBI and DOJ Stand Up and Petition to Have their Dirty Leaders Removed from Office?” ANP wants to thank them ahead of time!
With proof now out of ‘enemies of America within’ we must ask, are those ‘dirty leaders’ within the ‘deep state’ who are behind ‘the memo’ part of the same ‘crime crew’ that has been pulling off and covering up false flag attacks upon Americans over the past many years? Shockingly, Pennsylvania’s Republican Rep Scott Perry recently told Tucker Carlson on Fox News:
“Recently I’ve been made aware of what I believe to be credible evidence regarding potential terrorist infiltration through the southern border regarding this incident… Twice before the attack ISIS warned the United States they would attack Las Vegas. In June and August. And then after the attack claimed responsibility four times… Something’s not adding up… I’m just telling you I have received what I feel to be and believe to be credible evidence of a possible terrorist nexus.”
While possibly corrupted members of the deep state have long attempted to claim that a lone nut gunman was responsible for the carnage in Las Vegas despite ISIS’s claim their soldiers were responsible because it doesn’t fit their agenda, the very liberal Chicago Tribune reports Congressman Perry’s remarks to Tucker Carlson were ‘channeling an internet conspiracy theory’ .Yet their story neglected mentioning the fact that the term ‘conspiracy theory’ itself was created by the CIA, used to attack anyone pushing alternativeexplanations than their ‘official one’ for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
And with massive truths such as ‘the memo’ possibly being prepared to be dropped upon the American people, we’ve long warned that if the corrupted ‘deep state’ believed they’d soon be going down in flames and facing treason charges, they’d likely launch ‘the false flag to end all false flags’ to get them out of the huge mess that they’re in via their own creation. The last thing anyone in power wants to do is to ‘face the music’ for their treasonous crimes and have to relinquish their power platform.
As we see detailed further below in a new story from Brandon Smith over at AltMarket.com, the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in South Korea might provide them with the perfect cover they need to do so.
According to another recent story over at Gateway Pundit which also reports upon recent remarks made by ex-Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, Barack Obama will only have two options left once ‘the memo’ is released. From Bongino’s tweet:
After they #ReleaseTheMemo Obama will only have two options: OPTION 1) I didn’t know anything about the most important CI investigation in American history, despite being notified about it, or OPTION 2) I did know and I approved of using the police state to spy on my opposition.
Another tweet from Bongino released just a short while ago takes that even further:
If the memo contains even a tenth of what I, and many others, have already reported on regarding the #Obamagate spying scandal, then Obama is going to make Nixon look like Mr. Rogers. #ReleaseTheMemo

“Excuse me if I am skeptical about anything the US Intel “community” dredges up these days in the way of breaking news. Branches of that sprawling vine are already infected with creeping rot.”
And so the Golden Golem of Greatness re-enters the hall of mirrors that Syria has become. The US intelligence “community” has informed the US Media that Syrian President Assad is planning a new gas attack on Idlib Province, where a ragtag army of US-backed “rebels” (ISIS, etc) remain holed up against Assad’s forces backed by Russian air support. Have we seen this movie before?
by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
I didn’t expect that I would be getting “the Trump treatment” this early in the campaign. Last week, I wrote an article about the Las Vegas shooting that posed 16 questions that I did not feel were being addressed by the mainstream media adequately enough. That article was picked up by Zero Hedge, and it has now been read more than 1.6 million times. All along, I have never claimed to know exactly what happened in Las Vegas. But I feel very strongly that there is nothing wrong with asking questions. In the old days, that is what real journalists would actually do. Unfortunately, the art of critical thinking has almost entirely disappeared from the field of journalism, and so it is up to us in the alternative media to ask the hard questions that “professional journalists” used to pursue.
The emails have been pouring in from many others that also have serious questions about what happened in Las Vegas, but according to the Idaho Statesman, it was improper for me to ever raise any of these questions at all…
A Republican candidate for Idaho’s District 1 Congressional seat has drawn attention and criticism after promoting several unfounded theories on his blog about the Las Vegas shooting that left 59 dead and more than 500 injured on Sunday night.
Michael Snyder, a conservative author who lives in Bonners Ferry, posted a entry on his blog “The Economic Collapse” on Tuesday posing “16 unanswered questions about the Las Vegas shooting that the mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about.” He has also posted two entries about the shooter, claiming he may have been an anti-Trump activist with ties to antifacist organizations, among other claims.
Following that article in the Statesman, I received several hateful emails about my article on the Las Vegas shooting. For example, one individual called me “a nut” that needs “help”…
You’re a nut. Not the good kind. Get help.
Another email suggested that I should do anything else rather than run for public office…
You are obviously completely insane.
Please don’t run for any public office.
Go apply to be a manager at AppleBee’s. Go work as an assistant manager at a Tire Depot.
Do anything. But please don’t ever run for any kind of public office or put any more of your nonsense in the universe. It’s not helping anyone or anything.
And in yet another email, I was told that I am not wanted in Idaho…
You are too ******* crazy even for northern Idaho.
I know that you and your type consider Idaho an easy target, a fat pigeon for your to make an easy way. But you are not wanted here.
Of course the overwhelming majority of the emails that I have been receiving have been extremely supportive. Like me, most people out there have very serious questions about what happened in Las Vegas, and so many have encouraged me for being courageous enough to ask questions that other politicians would never dare to ask.
At the heart of the Idaho Statesman’s criticism of me was the fact that I suggested that Stephen Paddock may not have acted alone. And it turns out that Clark Country Sheriff Joseph Lombardo agrees with me. During a press conference on Wednesday, Lombardo publicly stated that Paddock almost certainly “had to have help at some point”…
“You got to make the assumption he had to have help at some point, and we want to insure that’s the answer. Maybe he’s a super guy, super hero–not a hero, super–I won’t use the word. Maybe he’s super — that was working out this out on his own, but it will be hard for me to believe that.”
He also said, “Here’s the reason why, put one and one–two and two together, another residence in Reno with firearms, okay, electronics and everything else associated with larger amounts of ammo, a place in Mesquite, we know he had a girlfriend. Do you think this is all self-facing individual without talking to somebody, it was sequestered amongst himself. Come on focus folks these type of investigations have been occurring in the last few years and we have to investigate that.”
So perhaps my questions are not so “unfounded” after all, eh?
The truth is that the Idaho Statesman owes me an apology. But I am not expecting one, because they have a very long history of treating conservatives very unfairly.

During a press conference Wednesday night intended to update the public on the investigation into Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo toldreporters that he assumes Stephen Paddock, the man who killed 59 people and injured hundreds in Las Vegas on Sunday night, must have had help.
Well, unless “maybe he’s a super guy, a super hero….” the sheriff said before changing his wording.
Watch Sheriff Lombardo discuss the department’s findings below:
“Do you think this was all accomplished on his own?” Lombardo asks himself.
“You got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point, and we want to ensure that’s the answer. Maybe he’s a super guy, super hero–not a hero, super–I won’t use the word.”
Lombardo said that while it’s possible he acted alone, ”it will be hard for me to believe that.”
Conversely, Paddock’s brother has told reporters that he believes his brother acted alone because “Steve had no help. Steve didn’t take help.”

“Somebody’s going to use a false flag and someone is going to shoot down an airplane, just so this war gets started,” said the former Congressman.
Former Congressman and presidential candidate, Dr. Ron Paul is going on the offensive to wake Americans up to this run toward war by this administration fueled by deep state interests. During an interview this week, Ron Paul warned that the deep state could carry out a false flag and use it to lead America into the next major war.
“We are seeing now in regard to North Korea a replay of the type of campaign the deep state and the media used in 2001 through 2003 to stir up the American people to support the invasion of Iraq,” wrote Adam Dick for the Ron Paul Institute as he summed up Paul’s comments on the issue.
During the interview, Paul lambasted the Trump administration for saber-rattling at the North Koreans and trying to provoke them into a conflict.
After illustrating how senseless and dangerous this smack-talking match between Trump and Kim Jong Un has become, Paul explained how the US has no business over there and our mere presence endangers lives and costs billions.
Noting just how serious this push to conflict has become, Paul then described how at any moment, either a real or staged false flag event could be used to catapult the US into a catastrophic world war.
“The stage is set now, the North Koreans are threatening, ‘Well, we’re gonna shoot down an airplane,’” said Paul describing the scenario.
Paul, who noted that he was in high school during the first senseless conflict with Korea, then drew a parallel with how the US is doing the same thing they did to bring us into the Iraq war—lie to us over and over and over until we believe them.
“Just remember … the propagandists, the deep state, and the media convinced the American people that Saddam Hussein was a danger. They’re doing the same thing now with North Korea,” said Paul.
In response to this propaganda, Paul, who has served as chairman of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity since leaving the US House, says Americans “ought to wise up and just not buy into this,” as reported by Adam Dick.
As the majority of the population fights over people kneeling during the national anthem, Donald Trump has given in to the shadow government and has begun marching the US toward war. His methods so devious that he’s managed to pull the wool over the eyes of his support base and push for more war, higher taxes, and the continuation of Obamacare. All the while, people think he’s making America great again.
