What Really Happened in the Las Vegas Shooting?

Running in Las Vegas

With Halloween already upon us, it has been a month now since the deadliest mass shooting incident in US history (we’re told killing some 58 and injuring 546 people) that took place October 1st in Las Vegas, Nevada. And yet, in spite of all that elapsed time, the “official narrative” of what happened makes virtually no plausible sense whatsoever. Also, though no surprise to me, it’s still no less disheartening to realize that the mainstream media has once again failed miserably to illuminate that day’s events with any real investigation into why a well-to-do real estate mogul with no previous history of criminal activity would decide one day to kill a bunch of people at an outdoor country western music festival called Route 91 Harvest Music Fest from the 32nd story of his room inside the Mandalay Casino Hotel. The notion that he simply “snapped” due to debts he had accrued from playing video slot machines or whatever else the media has been trying to push as a possible motive comes across as utter nonsense. Therefore, it is up to the fiercely independent media of on-line investigators, like myself. to try to make sense out of the Las Vegas mass shooting, since we’re simply never going to get the larger story from either the mainstream media or the FBI.

First, let’s begin with the man they claim was responsible…Stephen Paddock. Just who the hell is this guy? No matter what source you look at including the New York Times, absolutely nothing would indicate that Stephen Paddock fits the profile of a “lone nut” that would commit these crimes. He is described as a wealthy real estate mogul, who owns multiple homes around the world, and likes to gamble when he is in Las Vegas, which is at least once a month. His brother, Eric Paddock, listed his home address as Mesquite, Nevada, but there are various reports of him moving around a lot from house to house often looking for places that are quiet and secluded from public scrutiny. Naturally, people would become curious as to just what kinds of activities Paddock was involved in that might necessitate these kinds of measures (which I’ll get to in a moment), but there is certainly no indication that he was violent in any way.

Where it gets interesting is when we learn that Steven Paddock used to work for either a government entity or a government-affiliated company. So, for instance, he worked for the US Postal Service as well as an auditor for the IRS. He also worked for a company called Morton-Thiokol, which was the company that designed the infamous O-Rings that failed leading to the Challenger Shuttle explosion. According to investigators into the 1986 Challenger Shuttle catastrophe, scientists within Morton-Thiokol tried to warn NASA about the high probability of failure of their O-Rings within the rocket boosters in cold weather, but NASA refused to postpone the launch with obviously disastrous results. It’s also been reported that Paddock used to work for the giant aerospace corporation, Lockheed Martin. A recent CIA whistle-blower into the Deep State and the Secret Government, Kevin Shipp, said that Lockheed Martin is so large and powerful that it is like a separate state within a state. So far, all we’ve proved is that Stephen Paddock held some pretty high positions within some pretty powerful corporations that, in the case of Lockheed Martin in particular, have very deep connections with US intelligence. I maintain that, if there was a proper investigation done into Paddock’s job history, these kinds of connections would have definitely put him “on the radar” so-to-speak of these same intelligence agencies for use as either a sheep-dipped undercover operative or an informant asset.

In regards to Paddock working as an intelligence agent or asset of some kind, one of the darker theories is that he was involved in a child trafficking ring using his own 2004 created Domestic LLC called Paradise Ranch 21, which although incorporated in the State of Nevada had a base of operations in the Philippines. We do know that Stephen Paddock had a pilot’s license along with multiple planes that he stored in hangers like the one in Henderson, NV and that he had visited the Philippines many times with his girlfriend, Ms. Marilou Delaney, who investigators initially named as “a person of interest” and later flew back to the US for questioning. She was in the Philippines when the shooting occurred. It’s fairly well known that the Philippines is a popular destination for “sex tourism” and “child trafficking” for that purpose. This begs the question- “Was Paddock’s company Paradise Ranch 21 being used as front for the trafficking of children including a brothel in the Philippines that he owned?” And, if indeed this is the case, what role did this have to play, if any, in the Las Vegas Shooting?

We might also ask, “What other clues there are that would suggest Paddock wasn’t working alone?” Well, for one thing, how else could you explain how multiple bags of luggage filled with guns and ammunition were able to be hauled up to his room without triggering the curiosity of Mandalay Bay’s security and surveillance system? After all, we all know by now that casinos like Mandalay Bay have thousands of cameras everywhere in the hotel, as many as 3,000 cameras by some estimates just in that hotel/casino alone, and yet we haven’t seen any raw footage released of Steven Paddock outside or inside the hotel. Why not? Also, according to Steve Wynn (Chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts) who owns several hotel/casinos, nobody (presumably Paddock included) would normally have access to a service elevator at the hotel unless accompanied by security personnel. So, if Stephen Paddock was able to haul up so many bags filled with guns and ammo to his 32nd story room without attracting suspicion because he was using the “service elevator” of the hotel, who gave him access to this elevator and why? There are also witnesses that claim someone else was using the electronic key to the room where Paddock was claimed to be staying and bringing up several bags. Who was this person and what was their role in the shooting that occurred?

Looking at the room service receipt, it’s clear to me that there were at least two people in the room ordering food, and yet there doesn’t seem to be any interest into trying to find out just who this second person was, let alone why they were there in the first place. What’s also pretty clear to me, when you look at just how stressed out and anxious Sheriff Joseph Lombardo is during press conferences, is that the Las Vegas Police Department isn’t being allowed to conduct a proper investigation into what happened that day, since the FBI is running the show…i.e. cover-up. And yet, Sheriff Lombardo still let it slip that Stephen Paddock must have had help to pull it all off, which naturally implies a wider conspiracy afoot. The more you investigate the Las Vegas Shooting, the more it appears that Stephen Paddock was likely working as an intelligence asset on behalf of the ATF and/or FBI to run guns to individual(s) unknown as part of an entrapment scheme or even perhaps as part of an arms deal gone bad. I’ll leave it to you to decide which side of the fence you want to place this operation in, since we’ll probably never have all the facts as to what really took place. However, there is certainly ample precedent with the FBI’s notorious “Fast and Furious” program that funneled heavy weaponry into the hands of known Mexican drug cartels. We’re told that it was part of an investigation to find out where they ended up, but through a Congressional inquiry into the operation…this has proved to be a farce. Well, we know where they ended up! What we don’t know is why the DEA, ATF, and FBI needed to run guns to the Mexican cartels in the first place, particularly when you consider that no major arrests were made after the fact, and they’ve continued to stonewall investigations ever since.

So, if indeed Stephen Paddock was acting as a go-between front man in an arms deal being run by the FBI, then, of course, the FBI certainly wouldn’t want the public to know anything about their involvement in the operation after it blew up in their face. And, no matter what his involvement may ultimately have been, it would be much easier for the ATF/FBI’s image if Stephen Paddock is the dead “fall guy” for the entire thing and not reveal that there were a number of different shooters seen and heard that day, who might have realized that Paddock was working as an informant and decided then and there to take their bloody revenge on innocent bystanders, not to mention Paddock himself. After all, admitting that there were multiple shooters would blow what’s left of the official narrative right out of the water, and yet this is exactly what several witnesses claim they heard and saw that night, including video from a cab driver indicating shots being fired from the 4th floor of the Mandalay Bay as well from a different trajectory.

One on-line investigator makes a very cogent case that Paddock’s strange movements in flying out to Phoenix, where the ATF has a major base of operations, and driving back into Las Vegas is indicative of a gun-running operation being run by ATF and/or FBI. If Paddock was operating as the front man for these buy operations, it would make complete logical sense to do them inside a Las Vegas Casino Hotel, where any dirty money being transacted could be easily laundered through the casino poker chips and once exchanged after playing a few hands of Blackjack come out clean. Interestingly enough, there’s even reason to believe that the CEO of MGM Resorts International, James Murren, that also owns Mandalay Bay knew this was going on and had reason to believe that it was going to backfire soon, when you consider how much stock in MGM Resorts International he sold in the weeks prior to the Las Vegas Shooting. What did this guy know at the time that the rest of us didn’t? This is yet another possible avenue of inquiry in attempting to discover just who the real gun buyers, and hence likely culprits of the violence that erupted that day, were, especially when you consider how much money the Saudis have invested in Las Vegas casinos like the MGM Grand, Luxor, Tropicana, Bellagio, and Mandalay Bay.

Another big tip off that this entire “investigation” is merely window dressing for the FBI stage managing a massive cover-up in order to cover their ass is the strange case of the so-called Mandalay Bay security officer, Jesus Campos. If you remember correctly, authorities initially claimed that security guard Campos was shot right around 9:59 p.m., as he approached Paddock’s door right as the first shots were being fired. Later, this was changed to Campos being shot later at around 10:07 p.m., since he claimed that he was unable to breach a barricaded door until then. What I find even more curious than the changing time-line of Jesus Campos is why Stephen Paddock only fired for 10 minutes sometime shortly after 10 p.m., but LVPD SWAT wasn’t able to breach his suite until 11:20 p.m. that night! However, right around the time when reporters were trying to put Jesus Campos on every national TV news program in the country to get the full story as to what happened, Campos disappeared from public view. Then, inexplicably, when he came back into public view…he gave what would be his one and only interview with longtime celebrity sycophant talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, who unsurprisingly simply praised him as a hero. She also failed to ask the hard questions as to the ever changing time-line of that night or why he fled to Mexico instead of a hospital after he was supposedly shot in the leg only to return to the US a week later. Given that Ellen has paid endorsement deals with MGM Resorts International Inc., the parent company of Mandalay Bay, it would appear, on the surface, that the casino (in addition to the FBI and ATF) is also trying to cover their asses in making sure that they aren’t held financially liable for the dead and injured for their role in this major massacre.

Granted, I certainly don’t claim to have all the answers or even most of them. But, what I do have (that most of the mainstream media apparently do not with any real conviction) are important questions that have not been answered with any degree of satisfaction as to what really occurred in Las Vegas on the night of October 1st, 2017. Therefore, what I’ve tried to show in this article is that the official narrative as to what happened that night simply doesn’t add up in any way, shape, or form and that an alternative scenario (such as an ATF/FBI gunrunning entrapment scheme gone bad) is therefore necessary. Naturally, you’re free to choose whatever scenario that makes the most sense to you, as nothing is nailed down for sure in this highly strange case of continually changing and competing narratives. From what I’ve been hearing, there are at least 5 major alternative theories as to what happened thus far, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this number continues to grow, as is usually the case when so many pressing questions continue to persist without any reasonable answers from officialdom.
