5 Glaring Inconsistencies In The Vegas Shooting That Need To Be Addressed

0

by Matt Agorist, Activist Post:

Throughout history, there have been well-documented and factual occurrences of governments carrying staged events to manipulate the public into passing a law, accepting a war, or any other means of implementing control. These acts have been admitted to by the state, are 100 percent real. They happen so often that they have their own term—false flag.

There is a fine line to walk, however, between questioning everything and automatically assuming everything is a government conspiracy or false flag. Those who immediately claim every violent tragedy or event is a false flag often do more damage to the fight for truth than those who blindly accept everything their government tells them as the truth.

Every time an event happens it is important to keep an open mind, look for inconsistencies, try to find contradictions or impossibilities made to look possible, and always avoid jumping to conclusions.

Given the current information that has been released so far in the tragic shooting in Las Vegas, it appears that most everything we’ve been told so far is true and many of the inconsistencies appear to have come up from the mass hysteria and confusion surrounding such a violent and tragic event.

However, while most of what we are being told appears to be true, there are still some glaring inconsistencies that need to be addressed. The Free Thought Project has come up with a list of the top five inconsistencies surrounding this tragedy and we feel it is important to point them out to ultimately find the truth. Unlike other irresponsible outlets—rife with falsehoods—we will not attempt to claim we know the truth, nor speculate on a motive.

1. Stephen Paddock did not fit the bill for a mass murderer.

This is perhaps the most glaring of all the inconsistencies as most of the recent psychopath mass murderers in recent history made moves prior to killing that were consistent with being a psychopathic killer. Paddock did not.

Most odd was the fact that Paddock was rich. He was an accountant, lived in a half million dollar home in a retirement community and had no criminal record.

Paddock’s brother, Eric Paddock was equally stunned to hear about what his brother had done as he had just talked to him. “We’re still just completely befuddled. Dumbstruck,” he said.

He described his brother as having “no history of violence. No history of anything couldn’t give a s*** less about politics, religion, pointy hatted people etc, etc. He just wanted to get a freaking royal flush.”

Eric said he had last talked to his brother when he called down to Florida to see how his mother was making out after losing power from hurricane Irma. How many mass murderers call to check on their mother before going on to slaughter dozens of innocent people?

2. Paddock was still playing with his girlfriend’s casino card trying to rack up points the night of the shooting.

Eric Paddock said how his brother “loved to gamble. He loved — when I say loved — it was a job. It was fun because people were nice to him.”

Paddock was a regular in Vegas. He’d even been captured on surveillance footage in the Cosmopolitan Casino in 2011 in which he was seen falling. He later tried to sue the hotel for getting hurt and even then everyone remained cordial and nice to him.

Prior to the shooting, Paddock had been at the Mandalay Bay casino for four days and had not done anything out of the ordinary to garner the attention of hotel security.

He had simply been gambling. While it is possible that he was simply blending in to maintain his cover and wait for the moment to strike, the fact that he used his girlfriend’s slot machine card seems completely out of the ordinary.

For those who don’t know, slot cards or gambling cards are ways casinos track loyal customers. When you rack up enough points, they will comp a room or a meal for you. Paddock was playing with this card—essentially planning for future comps—on the very night he opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 people.

Blending in is one thing, but racking up points to plan for future benefits on the night you are going to commit mass murder seems glaringly inconsistent.

3. Surveillance footage of Paddock inside the hotel has yet to be released.

In most mass shootings, within 24 hours we usually see at least a still image of the perpetrator as captured by the building’s surveillance cameras. In Paddock’s case, as of the time this article was published, none of this footage has been released.

Why not release at least a single shot of Paddock walking into the hotel lobby?

Something VERY ODD About The Las Vegas Shooter’s Weapons

0

from SilverDoctors:

A Silver Doctors’ ex-military contact (Iraq War Combat Veteran) brings up some discrepancies with the weapons used by Stephen Pollock in the Las Vegas shooting. Hmmm….

First, there’s this:

From our Weapons Insider (Ex-military Iraq War Combat Veteran)

First of all, that’s 5.56 (.223) (as in AR-15/M-4) not 7.62 (AK-47) with a huge scope. That’s important. and on the scope, there is a reason that snipers use one shot with a scope, and a reason why light machine gunners don’t. When rounds are flying out of a rifle like in Las Vegas, a person is not using the scope. It is impossible. How can he see that far to just “spray and pray” from the hip at some 1000 yards away? I don’t think so.

There’s plenty of footage circling about the “4th floor”. We had our contact go over this clip:

Here’s what our insider says:

The sound from the rifle does not sound like the pops of 5.56 but the lower, more bass sounding, deeper firing (but not as low or as slow as a 50-cal, plus you’d just have body parts left and nothing much else). That sounds like 7.62 fire, like an AK, or, a 240B (think Rambo).

The footage above sounds a lot like an AK-47/7.62, which has a more destructive bullet anyway, and a lower rate of fire. A 5.56 has a faster fire rate than that. Also, that is way more than a 50 round magazine in that video, which makes me believe it was a belt fed 7.62 rifle, but obviously they did not use a belt linked with tracer fire (too much of a US military/false flag give-away).

If it was not belt fed, how does a sixty year old weakling man-handle a 10 pound AK with a 100 round magazine underneath? He’s not going to, but let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.

So Rambo is shooting from the shoulder (unlikely with scope, even with the “bi-pod”,) or he’s shooting from the hip, but that brings out another problem: If it was a “butt stock bumper” (or whatever they call it) producing the automatic fire rate, you mean to tell me he was rockin’ the rifle and controlling such a massive amount of recoil in what is obviously not just a 50 round magazine?

This does not add up at all.

16 Unanswered Questions About The Las Vegas Shooting That The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want To Talk About

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

The public is not being told the truth about what really went down in Las Vegas.  As you will see below, the evidence is mounting that there were multiple shooters and that this was an operation that was planned well in advance.  But according to the mainstream media, a 64-year-old retired accountant with a flabby physique that had no military training whatsoever and that wasn’t very experienced with guns was able to pull the whole thing off all by himself.  We are being told that Paddock was a “lone wolf” that didn’t have any ties to terror groups, and since he is now dead nobody is ever going to be able to interrogate him.  But the American people definitely deserve some answers about what took place, and that means that all of us should keep digging.

The following are 16 unanswered questions about the Las Vegas shooting that the mainstream media does not want to talk about…

#1 Photos of Stephen Paddock’s hotel room have been leaked, and one of those photos appears to show a suicide note. Why hasn’t the public been told what is in that note?

#2 Were there additional shooters?  A taxi driver clearly captured video of an automatic weapon being fired out of a lower level window.  A video from another angle and brief footage captured by Dan Bilzerian also seem to confirm that automatic gunfire was coming from a floor much lower than the 32nd floor room that Stephen Paddock was located on.  And if you weren’t convinced by the first three videos, this fourth video should definitely do it.

#3 Why were law enforcement authorities discussing “another suspect on the fourth floor”, and why isn’t the mainstream media talking about this?

#4 As Jon Rappoport has pointed out, it would have been impossible for Stephen Paddock to kill and wound 573 people in less than five minutes of shooting with the kinds of weapons that he is alleged to have used.  So why won’t law enforcement authorities acknowledge this fact?

#5 How in the world did Paddock get 42 guns and “several thousand rounds of ammo” into his hotel room without anyone noticing?

#6 How did someone with “no military background” and that wasn’t a “gun guy at all” operate such advanced weapons?  Because what we are being told by the mainstream media just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.  I really like how Natural News made this point…

Far from what the firearms-illiterate media claims, these are not systems that any Joe off the street can just pick up and use to effortlessly mow down 500 people. Running these systems requires extensive training, experience and stamina. It is physically impossible for a guy like Stephen Paddock to operate such a system in the sustained, effective manner that we witnessed, especially when shooting from an elevated position which throws off all the ranging of the weapon system.

Far from being a Navy Seal, Stephen Paddock is a retired accountant senior citizen with a gambling problem and a flabby physique. The only way he could have carried out this shooting is if he were transformed into a human superweapon through a magic wand. I’m calling this “Mission IMPOSSIBLE” because of the physical impossibility of a retired, untrained senior citizen pulling this off.

#7 Why was one woman telling people in the crowd that they were all going to die45 minutes before the attack?

#8 Why did it take law enforcement authorities 72 minutes to get into Stephen Paddock’s hotel room?

#9 Why did Paddock wire $100,000 to the Philippines last week?

#10 Why was Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, in the Philippines when the attack took place?  Did she know what was about to happen?

#11 Was Paddock on antidepressants like so many other mass killers in the past have been?

#12 Why was ISIS so eager to take responsibility for this attack, and why was the FBI so quick to dismiss that connection?

#13 Apparently Paddock had earned millions of dollars “through real estate deals”.  If he was so wealthy, why would he all of a sudden snap like that?

#14 Why did he move so frequently?  It is being reported that Paddock had 27 different residences during his adult life.

#15 Why were nearly all of the exits out of the concert venue completely blocked?…

In essence, the concert trapped the people, preventing them from escaping, and denying them the ability to seek cover. From there, sustained, full-auto gunfire is almost impossible to survive.

From Fox News, a caller named Russell Bleck, who survived the shooting, said live on air, “There were ten-foot walls blocking us in. We couldn’t escape. It was just a massacre. We had nowhere to go.”

#16 Why was a country music festival chosen as the target?  Was the goal to kill as many Trump supporters and other conservatives as possible?  And is there evidence that Stephen Paddock was connected to Antifa in any way?

At first I thought that this was a fairly straightforward story too, but the more I have dug into it the more complex things have become.

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that Stephen Paddock definitely did not act alone.  That means that the others involved in the shooting are still out there, and they must be brought to justice.  Let us never forget what these extremely wicked individuals did to innocent civilians such as 27-year-old Tina Frost

A 27-year-old woman has lost her right eye after a bullet ripped through her face during the Las Vegas concert massacre.

Tina Frost remains in a coma in hospital after undergoing surgery to remove the bullet that became lodged in her eye when a gunman opened fire on the crowd of country music fans on Sunday night.

Frost, who is originally from Maryland but moved to California several years ago, is expected to remain in the coma for a week.

Did Mandalay Bay Attack Itself?

from Rogue Money:

Jim Murren is donating MGM shareholder money to CAIR. They were named by the Justice Dept. as ‘an unindicted co-conspirator to Muslim terrorism….’ CAIR was created to support the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas. ”

— Wayne Allyn Root, August 29, 2017, Townhall.com

How many times have we said it? Repeat after me: Follow The Money! While the Sheeple and the MSM are “mystified” by the apparent lack of motive of Las Vegas Shooting patsy Stephen Paddock, neither the enlightened readers of Rogue Money nor anybody else who can do 15 minutes’ worth of internet research, need feel so handicapped.

Casinos Are a Perfect Source of Terror Financing

Let’s start with the parent company of Mandalay Bay. This is a casino property that sits within the portfolio of MGM Resorts International. The current CEO of the parent company is Jim Murren. He is a deflated Hillary Clinton supporter. Less than two months ago, with an announcement apparently fueled by the the post-Charlottesville racist hysteria, Murren sent a letter to his employees and announced a company donation-match program to funnel money to so-called “anti-hate” groups. By “anti-hate” groups, we of course mean Soros-backed groups, various terror-related groups, and miscellaneous non-profits.

As reported by Casino.org back on August 21, 2017 [linked here]: 

MGM Resorts CEO Jim Murren condemned “hate mongers and white supremacists” in a letter to his more than 77,000 worldwide employees last Friday, and encouraged them to donate to anti-hate groups by explaining contributions would be matched.

Murren finished his letter by telling his workers that if they donate to one of seven organizations MGM deemed to be working towards the anti-hate cause, the corporation would match it.

Those nonprofits include the Southern Poverty Law Center, National Association of the Advancement of Colored People, Anti-Defamation League, Human Rights Campaign, Council on American Islamic Relations, OCA National-Asian Pacific American Advocates, and League of United Latin American Citizens.

Five MORE things that don’t add up about the Las Vegas massacre… Where is all the expended brass?

0

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

Um, excuse me for a moment here, but I have a really stupid question. I know you told me there’s no such thing as a stupid question, but this one seems really stupid anyway.

The media has released photos of guns and ammo magazines laying around on the floor of the supposed “sniper’s nest” hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, but there’s something totally wrong with these pictures:

#1) Where is all the expended brass?

Now, maybe I’m just a moron who thinks automatic rifles discharge expended brass or something, because the last time I shot my rifle — which was yesterday — hot brass kept blasting out the right side port with every round. Very annoying. I wish I knew how to turn that off.

So, given that Stephen Paddock was firing full-auto rifles in a sustained 10-minute assault, at roughly the rate of six rounds per second, we should probably see massive piles of expended brass all over the place.

Let’s see: 6 rounds per second, times 60 seconds in a minute, times 10 minutes of sustained fire… that comes to 3600 rounds of ammunition. If you figure there were pauses in the automatic fire, you could discount that to maybe 3000 rounds actually fired.

Again, maybe I’m just stupid or something, but if Paddock fired 3000 rounds, there should be 3000 brass casings all over the floor of the hotel suite. (I know, I’m invoking logic and reason, both of which are banned in modern society and the mainstream media, but bear with me for a moment for the sake of appeasing a really stupid person…)

But what we see in the photos released by the media show only a tiny smattering of brass casings, almost as if they were thrown around to complete the staging of the scene:

Thank goodness the UK Daily Mail cleared all this up by stating there were, “Dozens of spent shells litter the floor… and a hammer.” Yep, DOZENS. In a mass shooting that supposedly involved the firing of thousands of rounds from this very location, the media proudly reports there are “dozens” of pieces of brass on the carpet.

Did the FBI sweep up all the brass before they took these photos? Maybe they needed the brass for their own reloads so they can stage the next shooting…

I also wonder why the media isn’t calling for a nationwide ban on hammers, since they can clearly be used in mass shootings. #BanHammers

And ban hotels, too, since they provide elevated platforms for mass shooters. That’s right, ban all hammers, but especially full-auto hammers, as they can smash hotel windows at an astonishing rate.

#2) Where are all the carpet burns from hot brass and hot gun barrels?

I must be really stupid, because the other day when I was training with my AR-15, I was doing an exercise called “keyhole shooting” which requires you to shoot at targets through nine different holes cut into a large piece of plywood that’s positioned vertically in front of you. Some of these holes are cut near the bottom of the plywood, meaning you have to lay down on the ground to shoot through those holes. Silly me, I forgot to wear a long sleeve shirt, and when I laid down on the ground to shoot from the bottom holes, I found my arms laying across hot brass that was expended from my earlier shots through higher holes.

Not surprisingly, I received serious burns on my skin for the simple reason that — DUH! — expended brass is really, really hot.

And I don’t know if you knew this or not, but the hotter your rifle gets, the hotter your expended brass gets, too. It’s apparently due to physics or some such thing. If you’re firing a full-auto rifle, some internal parts can reach temperatures of 400 C, which is hot enough to either cook a frozen burrito or set Maxine Waters’ hair on fire at the merest touch.

Now, at 400 C, most of your rifle grease smokes off, making it hard to breathe. After just a few hundred rounds, the air in that hotel room would have been unbearably polluted. It might have even caused global warming, which is exactly why we have to ban automatic weapons (plus full-auto hammers, see above).

Given that Stephen Paddock was smoking through thousands of rounds of ammunition, he was generating not only very hot rifles but also extremely hot brass that would have left burn marks in any synthetic carpet.

Where are all the burn marks in the carpet?

VEGAS SHOOTING: It’s All About Trauma for Your Mind!

from FaceLikeTheSun:

The New World Order has been planned for decades, if not centuries. The recent events of chaos in our weather, combined with terrible acts of violence in public places are both an outcome, and symptom to a larger problem. The world systems are all broken because they are being run by imperfect humans (us). And while the elite attempt to escape the limits of this world, Jesus already defied it in His resurrection on our behalf. The trauma imposed upon our generation is deep and scarring. It will bring about a psychologically incoherent upheaval, capable of massive forms of technological deceptions.

VIDEO: Las Vegas Shooting From 64th Floor Of Mandalay Bay

As the American people learn more about the tragic shooting in Las Vegas, more questions arise about what really happened.
 

by Jacob Engels, Central Florida Post:

The past 24 hours have been immensely depressing and shocking, from the Las Vegas shooting, to the news of a do not resuscitate order on an ailing Tom Petty.

While we know most of the story about what happened to Petty, thousands of unanswered questions remain about what actually transpired before, during, and after the shooting.

With the death toll climbing past 50 and hundreds injured, America is now turning their focus on the nitty gritty. The alleged shooter, 64-year old Stephen Paddock, was at onetime a Central Florida resident, with several family members still living in the state.

He was a wealthy former accountant with several homes, and a penchant for high stakes gambling according to his brother. Paddock was found dead in his 32nd floor hotel room in Mandalay Bay, after SWAT used a controlled explosive to enter.

uthorities are telling us that Paddock acted alone, and that at this point, no other people are believed to be involved in actually shooting the concertgoers of the Harvest Music Festival.

According to our sources, and other reports, we believe there is much more to the story, including what motivated Paddock (possible ties to Antifa, radical left-wing groups), or any potential accomplices.

Former undercover detective and private investigator James Copenhaver agrees that the public could be misinformed on on a lot.

“Having been in Vegas on many trips, we all know these casinos are the most protected buildings in the Untied States. They all have top-notch security, with top-notch surveillance cameras. My first question is, if in fact this retired accountant stayed for several days with 10 – 20 weapons in his room, were the housekeepers blind?”

Did this man really not set off any alarms if he placed a do not disturb card on his door for that many days to conceal his cache of weapons? Hopefully there are guests or hotel staff that have come forward or are going to come forward with more information.”

Copenhaver served on several joint task forces with federal agencies while in law enforcement, including operations with F.B.I. He gave ongoing commentary during the Pulse shooting last summer in Orlando, and graduated number two in his undercover class at Quantico.

Jeremy Adams, an Orlando based entrepreneur, was at a party on the 64th floor of the Mandalay Bay, moments before the first shots rang out.

“I was on the 64th floor, which is the highest. As it all started, I was heading downstairs to grab a cab. I ended up leaving before all hell broke loose, but immediately saw a strong and heavily armed police presence once it started.”

Adams later posted a video to his Facebook profile filmed by a friend still at the party, which starts sometime after the first round of gunfire down onto the crowd, exactly 32 floors below. See it below.

People are heard in disbelief, even thinking for a moment that it had ended, before more shots are heard.

The immediate and strong police presence suggests that law enforcement has been placed on high alert internally, or that authorities may have been in some stage on investigation on Paddock prior to the shooting.

A women even gave an interview to a reporter, claiming that another women was removed from the concert 45-minutes prior to the shooting, after shouting that “everyone was going to die tonight.”

The women was described a shorter Hispanic female, which sounds an awful lot like Paddocks roomate/girlfriend, who has since been reported to be abroad.

Could this be the beginning of violence and revolution promised by radical groups like Antifa, who have been promoting violence as the proper outlet for disillusioned people?

Could it be a otherwise normal American who was radicalized by ISIS, who has claimed responsibility for the attack?

Photos from today also show two windows being blown out on the 32nd floor, from what appears to be separate rooms… after we have been continually told it was a long shooter.

“He had no known training or time spent at the range, yet this 64-year old was able to shoot down on this crowd of 22,000 in a tactical manner? He had no military experience.”

Copenhaver also pointed to the odd nature of the audio of the SWAT team entering the hotel and breaching Paddock’s room.

“I’ve listened to in-progress calls many times, in many different scenarios. After they entered the room, all we hear is that the shooter is down. We don’t hear anyone asking about injuries to any law enforcement officers involved.”

This could mean that police might have had prior knowledge that Paddock was dead before entering the room, or that he killed himself right before the breach.

Las Vegas mass shooting: more than one shooter?

0

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

This is my second report on the tragic mass murder in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

I’m looking at a Getty image of two broken windows claimed to be on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, where the shooter purportedly fired an automatic weapon(s) at concert goers. I count 10 intact windows going around a corner of the building between the two broken ones. These broken windows are from the same hotel room? That’s questionable, and worth checking. If the windows are from two adjacent rooms, it suggests the likelihood of more than one shooter.

Las Vegas police scanner audio on first call-out to the hotel records an officer emphatically saying the shots are coming from half-way up the hotel. The hotel has 43 stories. The 32nd floor is where police claim they found shooter Stephen Paddock’s dead body and his cache of weapons. Perhaps the police officer was estimating when he said “half-way up.” If not, he was seeing shots fired from lower in the hotel. That would suggest the possibility of multiple shooters on different floors.

The latest estimate: 58 dead, 515 injured. It’s expected that more dead and wounded will be reported.

Variety.com states: “…the shooting rampage that police have said lasted about four and a half minutes.”

515 wounded, 58 killed in four and a half minutes.

That would come out to an average of one person killed or injured every 2.1 seconds.

The question arises: how likely is it that one person, particularly Stephen Paddock, was the shooter, since according to his brother, Stephen was “not an avid gun guy at all…He has no military background or anything like that.”

I’ve still not seen a definitive statement about what kind of auto weapon(s) Paddock was supposedly using. One television commentator mentioned it would have been very, very expensive.

Initial reports of more than one shooter were quickly dismissed this morning.

The possibility of more than one (professional) shooter is real—and Paddock is not a candidate whose apparent lack of experience and background makes him an immediate choice…

These are questions, not conclusions, and they should remain open questions—in distinction to mainstream news, which has, as usual, gone along with blinders, taking dictation from law enforcement:

One shooter, dead, case closed.
