LAS VEGAS: AN AUSTRALIAN’S TALE

0

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

The articles on the Las Vegas shooting continue to pour in, and I am grateful to all of you sharing them. This one comes from Mr. V.T., and if true, raises more questions:

Hotel Guest Next Door To Las Vegas Shooter Saw ‘Multiple Gunmen’

Mr. Brian Hodge, a citizen of Australia, was apparently in the room next door to Paddock’s, and had this to say:

An Australian man who was staying in the room next to the shooter in the Mandalay Bay has confirmed he witnessed multiple gunmen involved in the Las Vegas attack.

There were multiple people dead and multiple shooters. I was just hiding waiting for police to come get us. I got outside safely and was hiding in bushes,” Brian Hodge told Australia’s Courier-Mail.

Mr. Hodge, who was staying in room 32134, next door to Stephen Paddock in room 32135, also provided important information when he revealed that a security guard was killed by police.

My floor is a crime scene. They killed a security guard on my floor.

Who was the “security guard” who was killed by police?(Emphasis in the original)

The article continues by referencing yet another witness, who saw suspicious activity concerning a security officer:

Wendy Miller from Cooroy, on the Sunshine Coast – another Australian caught up in the Las Vegas shooting – may have provided a missing piece of the puzzle. Also speaking to the Courier-Mail, Ms Miller said she was at a bar in the nearby Luxor Hotel with her husband when she saw what she described as a “man of interest” run by.

Ms Miller said the man sprinted through her hotel after coming off an escalator from the Mandalay Bay.

The man that they [security] were chasing was wearing a security jacket like them,” she said.

Mr Hodge’s eyewitness report of multiple gunmen and a dead security guard, and with Ms Miller’s report of a security guard being chased by authorities, suggest that the mainstream media narrative of the “lone wolf” gunman is not the truth.

There you have it: two Australians are providing a version of events that is certainly not condign to the narrative being cobbled together by the corporate controlled Mighty Wurlitzer Media. In this case, however, the allegations are disturbing, for if true, it would indicate that at least one “security guard” was not a legitimate security guard. Accepting that for the sake of argument, this would imply the possibility of other plants within casino security that day.

Bear with me, because this is where my high octane speculation begins. First, a personal note. Many, but not all, regular readers here will know that many years ago I was a casino floor manager. In fact, at one point, I was the ranking floor manager on the overnight shift in the casino I worked for. I went through the usual hiring process: I had tofill out an application that seemed longer than the Old Testament, and wait for several weeks while it was vetted. Once accepted, I went through the usual training, and once working, I had to work with security, which in casinos, as everyone knows, is quite intense. The bottom line: all floor personnel and security personnel know each other. In a large concern like the Mandalay, this probably isn’t the case, at least on a personal level, but nonetheless, even if one doesn’t know or interact with particular staff members, one will at least recognize certain faces over time.

Was Las Vegas Another False Flag?

0

by Stephen Lendman, Stephen Lendman:

The official narrative leaves much to be desired – conclusions drawn much too quickly, a disturbing red flag. Even Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Sam Spade and Columbo needed time to solve murder mysteries.

On October 1, a mass shooting targeted the city’s Harvest country music festival.

Police claimed a lone gunman opened fire on the crowd from the Mandalay Bay hotel across Las Vegas Blvd., 390 yards away – 64-year-old Stephen Paddock called the perpetrator, found dead in his room.

Police claimed it was from a self-inflicted wound. Dead men tell no tales, Paddock conveniently unable to tell his side of the story.

Gunfire reportedly continued intermittently for around 10 minutes. Around two dozen firearms were found in Paddock’s 32nd floor room, including AR-15-style and AK-47-style rifles – two mounted on tripods, equipped with telescopic sights.

Two bump stocks was also found, devices letting semi-automatic weapons fire nearly as fast as fully-automatic assault ones, illegal in America since 1986.

The US army defines assault rifles as “short, compact, selective-fire weapons that fire a cartridge intermediate in power between submachinegun and rifle cartridges. Assault rifles have mild recoil characteristics and, because of this, are capable of delivering effective full-automatic fire at ranges up to 300 meters (328 yards).”

The Mandalay Hotel was 390 yards from the concert venue. Nearly 600 people were killed or wounded in the attack.

It defies imagination to believe a 64-year-old man on his own could cause so much carnage in around 10 minutes of intermittent firing – about one casualty per second from a distance beyond the accurate range of the weapon or weapons used at night.

Paddock reportedly was a wealthy retired accountant, a frequent Las Vegas gambler. His brother Eric called him an ordinary guy, “not an avid gun guy (with) no military background…”

“There is no reason we can imagine why Stephen would do something like this.” No motive exists for the rampage, no explanation of how an arsenal of weapons were brought into the hotel unnoticed.

Paddock checked into the Mandalay hotel on Thursday, September 28, three days before Sunday’s incident. Yet housekeeping found nothing unusual in his room.

A weapons arsenal can’t be easily concealed. Even in satchels disassembled they’d look out-of-the-ordinary, so much luggage for one person for a short stay.

Raw video footage showed muzzle flashes from the 4th floor, not the 32nd where Paddock was staying.

If his brother was right saying he wasn’t a “gun guy,” how could he possibly have killed or wounded nearly 600 people in minutes by himself – a near-impossible feat!

The official story reported soon after the incident makes no sense, sounding more like an implausible grade B film than reality.

Most Americans are uninformed, out-of-touch and indifferent to horrors committed by their country, unable to distinguish between facts and fiction.

Virtually all instances of headline-making alleged threats or violent incidents are polar opposite how they’re portrayed.

False flags are a longstanding US tradition, originating in the mid-19th century, 9/11 the mother of them all.

Las Vegas appears the latest, clearly a well-orchestrated incident, likely planned well in advance of last Sunday, each time convenient patsies used, most people none the wiser.

Fear-mongering is used to convince people to sacrifice fundamental freedoms for greater security, not realizing that sacrificing one for the other assures losing both.

False flags are pretexts for militarism, wars, occupations, colonization, resource theft, and exploiting populations for profit – along with enacting police state legislation, facilitating state-sponsored ruthlessness, loss of fundamental freedoms the main domestic casualty.

Will Las Vegas be used for a greater assault on core constitutional rights, heading things toward possible martial law and suspending the nation’s founding document?

Will it be easier to escalate ongoing wars and launch new ones? Forget about gun control, no chance whatever of it being addressed legislatively.

Was Las Vegas Massacre ‘Fast And Furious’ On Steroids, A Massive Gun Running Scheme Gone Terribly Wrong?

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

REMEMBER! Mandalay Bay CEO Donated Money To Groups Tied To Islamic And Domestic Terror Groups

For those who’ve forgotten the story of a ‘mystery man’ who was found dead back in 2015 in a Los Angeles, California neighborhood, leading authorities to discover 1,200+ guns and 7+ tons of ammunition, now is the time to remind you. While the man known only as ‘Bob’ to his friends and fiance was finally officially identified as one Jeffrey Alan Lash, authorities said he led a ‘double’ or ‘secretive life’, and told friends he had worked for a top secret government agency before ‘going out on his own’. 

Despite living with his ex-fiance for 17 years in which she had no clue about what he really did while he collected so many weapons they piled up to the ceiling, as we see in the first video below, a 2015 CNN report about the mysterious stockpile of weapons, Lash also compiled a huge pile of cash during that time while bragging about saving America from numerous terror attacks. 

While Lash lived in a house worth nearly a million dollars and had compiled weaponry and ammo worth well over a million, police said there is no record that he ever filed a tax return or held a job. Interestingly, according to this story from Live Trading News about Lash’s death, after he died, his fiance and another woman left his body in a car and fled to Oregon because they believed Lash was an ET-human hybrid working for US intelligence agencies, and that his contacts would soon retrieve the body. A photograph of Jeffrey Lash and some of the weapons found in his home taken from the Live Trading story is below. 

While we’d truly hoped we’d be done writing about such a horrific tragedy as the Las Vegas shootings by now, new information continues to flow in a half-a-week after the cowardly attack and as we’ve noticed in the ANP comment sections and all across the internet, the more new information that surfaces, the more people want to get to the bottom of what really happened there. And like Jeffrey Lash, authorities say that the Las Vegas shooter also led a mysterious, double life

With more and more videos coming out that appear to document the ‘multiple shooter’ theory while Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo claims its likely that at somewhere along the line, Stephen Paddock probably had some help, we take a look within this ANP story at an emerging theory that continues to pile up evidence – Stephen Paddock may have been an arms dealer working for a shadowy ‘deep state’ US government agency. Along with taking a look at several emerging warnings that he may have been selling weapons to ISIS terrorists within the United States. 

We also take a look back at a August 29th story from Wayne Allyn Root over at Town Hall titled “Billion Dollar Vegas Company Tied To Terrorist Organization?” within which we learned that Jim Murren of MGM Resorts International has violated the trust of his MGM Board, shareholders, employees and customers. Keep in mind, this story was written back in August, more than a month before the horrific shootings and yes, Jim Murren is the CEO of the company that owns the Mandalay Bay. From the August Town Hall story.: 

Jim Murren of MGM Resorts International has violated the trust of his MGM Board, shareholders, employees and customers. But not in a small way. In a “Vegas bigger-than-life way.” Murren is so wildly wrong, so spectacularly reckless, so disastrously offensive to his customers, I believe it’s time for a shareholder revolt. 

No CEO has a right to involve his company in controversial politics, let alone the funding of extreme and radical organizations. But Jim Murren wins the award for “Reckless CEO of the Century.” Murren has just put MGM in bed with an organization with ties to Islamic terrorism. 

Does MGM’s Board approve of their CEO using company statements and shareholder money to offend 63 million Trump voters? How about every conservative in America? How about Christian customers? Families with children? How about anyone who is not a fan of Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood? Because I am certain millions of MGM customers will be shocked and offended when they find out who Jim Murren just tied his company to. 

Murren announced in response to what he sees as the racism, bigotry, intolerance and violence seen at the Charlottesville disturbance, that MGM will donate company money (and match employee contributions) to a collection of extreme leftist civil rights, human rights, and Muslim advocacy groups. A strange and partisan decision to make with company funds and shareholder money.

Internet Conspiracy Theory Predicted Attacks on Vegas and the Police State Response—3 Weeks Ago

0

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project::

The corporate police state is seeing record highs in their stock prices as fear grips Americans into submitting to less freedom for the promise of security

In America, after every crisis, government reacts by stripping freedoms and rights to provide an illusion of security. This methodology is nothing new and, in fact, stems from the work of a 19th Century German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, known as Hegelian dialectic.

Hegelian dialectic usually presents itself in a threefold manner—a thesis, giving rise to its reaction, an antithesis, which contradicts or negates the thesis, and the tension between the two being resolved by means of a synthesis. In more simplistic terms, one can consider it thus; problem → reaction → solution.

If we apply this philosophy to the Las Vegas shooting, the problem is that a crazy person murdered dozens of people allegedly using legally obtained firearms. The reaction is that people are scared and don’t want others to have guns and they want to feel safe. The solution, as presented by those exploiting this tragedy for personal and political gain, will be to increase the police state and attempt to disarm Americans.

Like a record spinning on a turntable, this scenario plays out over and over again in America—all while the citizens cheer on the creation of the police state. This cheering is bipartisan as the left cheers for the dismantling of the 2nd Amendment while the right cheers on the expansion of the police state and militarization of police.

Sadly, both sides perpetually forget the very wise warning that those who surrender personal liberty for perceived security—deserve neither freedom nor security.

Indeed this warning is so tried and true that many of those paying attention are able to make predictions based on how the government will react to real or staged events. And, one internet sleuth on 4chan made some incredibly ominous predictions on the Las Vegas shooting and how it will usher in a windfall for the police state.

Disclaimer: We are not reporting what this user predicted as fact. We are only showing it because it serves to illustrate the motivation behind the problem, reaction, solution methodology of the state and their corporate partners.

Several weeks ago, on 9/11, a mysterious 4chan user who went only by “John” made a series of at the time overlooked posts. He warned users to stay away from any gatherings of large groups of people in the Vegas or nearby Henderson areas. Stating that he had insider knowledge of what he referred to as a “high incident project” that was set to occur soon.

THE VEGAS PLOT THICKENS: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE SHOOTER AND AN INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

from The Daily Sheeple:

A few internet sleuths have taken matters into their own hands after the obvious disinformation campaign by the mainstream media surrounding the Las Vegas shooting. Mounting evidence of what looks like a false flag is worrying many. And once you read this, those fears will be shoved into overdrive.

On the surface, the tweet doesn’t say much. But how much can Mike Toke really say in a limited amount of characters? But what he does manage is enough to get anyone seeking the truth to follow all these leads and look into everything that the media and our government continues to hide from us. It’s what’s embedded in the tweet that counts.

Looking closely, the first thing you will notice is that the shooter, Stephen Paddock, had a pilot license and owned two planes. This is well-established fact. The tail number of one of those planes is N5343M, a Cirrus SR-20. You can see that this was owned by Paddock by going to the website Flightaware.com. But Paddock doesn’t own this plane anymore. It was grounded three years ago, and it’s now in the hands of none other than Volant LLC, which there is little information on.

However, Volant Associates is none other than a Department of Defense contractor. Meaning Paddock’s plane has been in the hands of the United States government for the past three years and grounded since – if Volant LLC is being used as a way to hide information. Considering what Volant Associates does, that wouldn’t be so far fetched.  But the plane’s information is all easily verified here on Flightaware.com. It’s been in Roanoke, Virginia since April 25, 2014.

Volant’s describes it’s mission on their website as providing “the industry’s preeminent professionals to discriminating U.S. government and intelligence-and-defense-industry customers.

The registration of this plane is also listed as “active” even though it hasn’t been flown in three years. Strange enough yet? Well, it gets even better. The FAA should have this same information. But they don’t. Their website shows that a different aircraft, a Cessna 152, maintains that tail number and it was last registered to a person in San Diego, California. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) is a government agency, and it appears that it has scrubbed this plane’s information. Now, why would they do that? Well, the plot still thickens.

There is little to be known about Volant LLC., in Roanoke, Virginia. A company big enough to have a plane should have a website, at least that would be the assumption. But a Google search netted very little information other than they provide “business services.” But Volant Associates is a completely different matter. That’s your defense contractor. And their website says they are located in Chantilly, VA, which wouldn’t be too far from Volant LLC. in Roanoke. And a quick Google search of that verifies that the two cities are only 219 miles apart. So is Volant LLC., a cover company for the defense contractor? Is this a coincidence?

Shooter’s Brother May Have Just Busted This Investigation Wide Open: “Steve Was An Arm… I’m Sorry… Please Don’t…”

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

Alternative media sleuths across the world are trying to get to the bottom of the Las Vegas shooting and the following video, made available by Twitter user Red Pill, is going to lead to even more questions.

We won’t put words into Eric Paddock’s mouth. You decide what he intended to say:

“Steve had no help… Steve didn’t take help… it did not take a village for Steve…”

“Steve was an arm…”

**Eric Paddock Realizes Mistake**

“I’m sorry… Please don’t…. I’m using a colloquial term…”

There are two likely possibilities for what Eric Paddock meant to say.

First, shooter Stephen Paddock recently wired $100,000 to the Philippines, a country known for an illegal arms trade that in 2014 led to the arrest of a Californian Senator. Thus, is it possible Eric Paddock meant to say, “Steve was an arms dealer,” prior to cutting himself off?

Or, perhaps, he intended to say, “Steve was an army of one,” a slogan used by the U.S. Army in recruiting commercials.

You decide:

Here’s how internet users interpreted his statement:

Multiple shooters: not the first time

0

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

Update: I have three separate reports that shots were fired through the front door of the Vegas Bellagio Hotel at roughly the same time as the concert shooting, late Sunday. For example:

(Update 2: The video — “YT /watch?v=AKv8KrJBAxg” — has been taken down. If/when it is re-posted on YT, I will update the link.)

(Update 3: Here is the new link: “YT /watch?v=6V_gS9ythDQ”. Some YT key words are “bellagio hotel shooting,” “Rene Downs”)

According to one report, the Bellagio was put on lockdown. I can’t verify the reports with further evidence at this time.

In a crime, multiple shooters often imply political purpose—on the other end of the spectrum from “crazy man acting alone.”

In recent articles (archive here), I’ve been assembling a case for multiple shooters in the Las Vegas mass murder at the concert.

Here is a very brief historic survey of multiple (or other uninvestigated) perpetrators. It’s certainly not meant to be all-inclusive. For instance, I omit 9/11 and the mind-boggling series of egregious lies that continues to this day.

James Holmes, the Colorado theater shooter. 2012. One witness, Corbin Dates (aka Dayton), told Aurora news outlets a man sitting in the front row of the theater took a cell phone call and went to a side exit, propped the door open with his foot, and seemed to be signaling somebody. Ten to 15 minutes later, James Holmes (?) appeared in full gear with weapons as the exit door swung open. Another witness (no name revealed) stated that, during the massacre, a gas canister was thrown from a direction where Homes wasn’t standing. The police brusquely discounted these testimonies.

The Oklahoma City Bombing. 1995. Analysis (my interviews with bomb experts) concluded that the ANFO bomb in the Ryder truck, parked at the curb of the Murrah Federal Building, could not have caused the degree or profile of the damage to the building. The takedown of a portion of the building was far more sophisticated. Tim McVeigh, if he was involved, could not have acted alone.

Robert F Kennedy, assassinated in 1968, in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel, in Los Angeles. Suppressed evidence makes it clear that Sirhan Sirhan, the convicted killer, who was standing in front of RFK, did not fire the shots that killed him. Those shots came from behind Kennedy. A count of the number of shots that were heard reveals more shots were fired than Sirhan had in his clip. There was no investigation of a second shooter.

The Martin Luther King murder. 1968. On pages 462 and 463 of The Assassinations, you can read a list of 20 good reasons for doubting and rejecting the official story of James Earl Ray as the killer. The essay is: “Fatal Justice: The Death of James Earl Ray,” by James DiEugenio. Suffice to say, the failed legal struggle to re-retest the rifle Ray supposedly used to kill MLK shows the powers-that-be were determined to keep truth out of the investigation.

John F Kennedy, assassinated in 1963. The House Select Committee on Assassinations (1976-1979) made an excruciating attempt to prove that the “lightning-fast reloading” supposedly achieved by Lee Oswald, as he fired his old rifle, could account for the acoustical evidence of all shots fired at Kennedy in Dallas. The effort failed completely, but the results of clearly unscientific tests were accepted as positive proof of the lone gunman theory. (See The Assassinations, edited by James DiEugenio and Lisa Pease, 2003, published by Feral House, p. 82-84.)
