Reporter Doorstops Vegas Security Guard’s House: “I Can Confirm His Family Has A Gag Order”

Over the last few days Las Vegas law enforcement officials have significantly altered the timeline of the mass shooting that left 59 dead and hundreds injured. Adding further intrigue is the fact that the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino now says that they have their own timeline of events, which diverge from the official story.

On top of that, mystery still surrounds Mandalay Bay security guard Jose Campos, who was shot in the leg when Stephen Paddock opened fire and unleashed some 200 rounds through the door of his hotel room. Campos, who is reportedly not registered to work in the State of Nevada, was scheduled to do an interview with Sean Hannity Thursday night. But just minutes before the interview was to take place, Campos was said to have abruptly cancelled his appearance:

In response to the cancellation, alternative media reporter Laura Loomer attempted to reach out to Campos, who has thus far remained shielded behind his union representatives and refused to provide his account of the shooting to the public. According to Loomer, it appears that Campos and his family have been forced to remain silent because of a gag order surrounding the incident.

She “doorstopped” the Campos family in person when she visited their home in Las Vegas Thursday night.

According to a video Loomer posted on Periscope, Campos has armed security and it appears that an unmarked law enforcement vehicle is parked outside his home.

Additional videos show Loomer asking members of the Campos family for more information about why he chose to cancel his interviews:

 

According to Loomer, Jesus Campos and his family members have been told not to discuss the incident. Further, when Loomer was confronted by an armed security guard outside of Campos’ home she noted that the firm the security guard supposedly works for is not registered to operate in Nevada, to which she asks the guard:

You said that you worked for OnScene, a security company. We did a background check…. and the business license expired in January 2017 and has a virtual address… so the company that you work for…. is it a real company? Or is it just some type of a shill company that the FBI or DHS is using?

The House of the Future seems as far away as ever

According to Jacob Atalla of KB Home, “The best way to predict the future is to make it.” So he and others in the building industry often build model concept homes to test out ideas. Michele Lerner of the Washington Post talks to a few people in the industry to get a sense of what’s coming next.

“When we imagine the home of the future and look at innovations, it’s important to answer two questions,” said Matt Power, editor in chief of Green Builder media in South Portland, Maine. “Just like you ask yourself about relationships, you should ask, ‘Does this make your life better?’ And if the answer is yes, then ask yourself from an ethical point of view, ‘Does this reduce my impact on the Earth?’ ”

Alas, when you look at what they are actually proposing, it doesn’t have a lot to do with reducing impact on the earth. They pay lip service to energy consumption, but it is all about adding stuff.

“We need to look at energy efficiency, water efficiency, smart-home systems and healthy homes together,” Atalla said. “For example, everyone recognizes the importance of sleep to people’s health. Connecting all your devices to turn down the lights gently and adjust the air temperature as it gets later in the evening can help restore your circadian rhythms. You can have white noise turn on while you sleep and then in the morning your home can automatically mimic sunrise, and your tankless water heater can warm up the water for your shower.”

Alas, energy efficiency is not a big seller, as we have known for years.

Despite the plethora of sustainable products for the home, consumers are becoming more skeptical of the benefits of upgrading to energy-efficient systems, Herro [of Meritage Homes] said. “Buyers tend to look at the price tag more than operating costs,” Herro said. “We need to be transparent about showing the cost-effectiveness of building more energy-efficient homes.”

So instead of building it in, they are adding on options like batteries, solar panels and energy monitors, because “If you want people to use less resources, you have to make it a game.” So they keep piling more tech onto the house.

It all reminds me of something Philadelphia builder Nic Darling said when he was trying to build cheap green houses like the 100K house. He couldn’t understand why most builders charged so much more for energy efficient green homes until he spoke to an acquaintance who gave him a “piece of her grandmother’s wisdom in explanation . . . “It is because they’re polishing a turd.”

OK, so it’s a bit harsh. Turd is, maybe, an unnecessarily rude word to use to describe what are often pretty nice homes, but the concept is sound.Most of the builders are still trying to build the exact same home they have always built. They are simply adding features to make that same house energy efficient, healthy and sustainable. This addition gets expensive….

So, they polish the turd. Rather than redesign the house that has been successful for them in the past, they add solar panels, geothermal systems, high end interior fixtures, extra insulation and other green features. The house gets greener, but it also increases significantly in cost. Since the features are add-ons and extras, the price rises as each one is tacked on.

There are some subtractions- they are building fewer parking spaces, and are looking at smaller, more adaptable floor plans. There are growing concerns about wellness and air quality. But generally, they still seem to be polishing the turd.

But wait! There is that critical aspect to modern living that we have all been waiting for:

KB Homes is also addressing the trend of e-commerce by preparing a landing pad for a drone on top of a house, with a chute leading into a dedicated space for deliveries that can be refrigerated for food items. “The delivery pod can be accessed with a code given to a delivery person and by communication between the drone and an app on the homeowner’s phone,” Atalla said. “The homeowners would also have access to the pod from the inside of their house.”

Right. How about a dumb home, please.

White House: Senate should stop taking vacations

WASHINGTON — The White House on Tuesday brushed aside concerns that President Trump’s regular attacks on prominent congressional Republicans may be hurting his legislative agenda by alienating important allies, then scolded lawmakers for spending so much time outside of Washington.

“He’s calling on Congress to get their job done. They’re on another vacation right now,” Trump’s press secretary, Sarah Sanders, told reporters at her daily briefing. “I think that we would all be a lot better off if the Senate would stop taking vacations and start staying here until we get actually get some real things accomplished. The president’s here and committed to working with them to do that.”

The Senate is out of session this week. But Trump is no slouch in the vacation department: A Washington Post analysis in August found that he has taken roughly triple the amount of the leisure time Barack Obama had taken by the same point in his presidency.

Sanders had been asked about the impact of Trump’s propensity to wage public fights against Republicans in Congress. In the latest dust-up, the president and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker have traded barbs. On Tuesday, Trump mocked “Liddle’ Bob Corker,” perhaps responding to Corker’s jab that the White House has become an “adult day care center.”

Some observers have questioned the wisdom of feuding with Republicans when the party’s narrow 52-48 seat edge in the Senate means losing just three GOP votes for a piece of legislation almost certainly spells its defeat.

But Sanders disputed the idea that the president bore responsibility for any bad blood.

“I don’t think he’s alienated anyone; I think that Congress has alienated themselves by not actually getting the job done that the people of this country elected them to do,” she said.

“They all promised and campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare; they haven’t done that. They campaigned on tax reform; hopefully we see that happen — we’re certainly committed to that and think we’ll get there,” Sanders told reporters. “But time and time, again Congress has made promises and failed to deliver. If anyone is being alienated, it’s people that are promising things and not delivering.”

Since his January inauguration, Trump has tweeted harsh words about Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Republican Sens. John McCain, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham, Lisa Murkowski and Corker, among others.

While those attacks have left lawmakers and aides confounded and annoyed, it’s not clear that the rebukes have had much of an impact on cooperation between the White House and the GOP majority in Congress. While Trump is broadly unpopular with the U.S. public in general, he retains the support of a large majority of Republican voters — the same voters GOP lawmakers will need in the 2018 midterm elections.

Park a house in a parking spot instead of a car

Or, for that matter, park both a house and a car like Bill Dunster’s ZEDpod.

Designboom shows an interesting house designed by Marco Casagrane that sits in a Helsinki parking spot, 2.5m (8′-4″) by 7m (23′). It’s made of 8″-thick sheets of cross-laminated timber and therefore they claim that no additional insulation is necessary because that’s enough for cold winters. Many might argue that point since CLT has an R value of about 1.2 per inch, so that’s an R of 9.8, not exactly code anywhere, but we will let that go, because it’s got solar panels.

TIKKU© Jenni gästgivar via Designboom

The three levels include a workspace, a bedroom and a greenhouse on the top. Somewhere inside is a dry toilet. On his website, architect Casagrande claims that “anywhere a car can go, Tikku can grow.”

Tikku is a needle of urban acupuncture, conquering the no-man’s land from the cars and tuning the city towards the organic. Many Tikkus can grow side-by-side like mushrooms and they can fuse into larger organisms. Tikku is self-sufficient. It produces its own energy with solar panels and it has dry toilets. Fresh water is carried in. Showers, saunas, laundry machines and food is around. Modern man has to die a bit in order to be reborn.

Tikku was built for Helsinki Design Week and seems more like an art project than a real solution, especially when you carry in water and go somewhere else for a shower. It also entails the loss of a parking space, which is blasphemy.

Compare this to Bill Dunster’s ZEDpod, seen last week at the Green Building Festival in Toronto. You can tell it is from the UK, or it would be a ZEEpod.

It is built on stilts, on top of a parking spot. It is a low carbon home designed to sit on top of existing lots, the ultimate in brownfield sites. Some key features:

  • Low carbon homes which reduce strain on the existing infrastructure
  • Built on land outside of the development plan — there are public parking spaces in the UK with suitability for up to 200,000 ZEDpods
  • Utilise the benefits of car parks such as good transport links, work place locations, in situ local amenities.

They have everything you need to live:

ZEDpod occupants enjoy their own balcony and front door, a kitchen and dining table, their own bathroom, a lounging space and a stair leading to a mezzanine floor bedspace with home office desk, double bed and wardrobe.

They can also be ganged together into multiple units, creating covered parking.

The Pods are built to higher standards than conventional homes with superinsulation, vapour permeable draught proofed construction, heat recovery ventilation, aluminium clad triple glazing, hot dip galvanised structural frame with timber infill panels and external insulation. The external envelope is designed to be around 20 years to first maintenance and is constructed from fireproof, durable and robust materials.

They are relocatable, have simple raft foundations that sit right on the parking spot. Dunster goes into great detail on his website about the construction, the solar power and batteries, but does not explain how the “Integrated shower room with water saving taps and spray showers plus wash hand basin” are serviced for water and waste, which is always a problem with these concepts; sewer and water connections are expensive.

But both Tikku and ZEDpod fundamentally try to address the same issue: There are millions of parking spaces out there, 800 million in the USA alone. Surely they could be put to better use.

Trump being Trump: White House says "calm before the storm" comment is "extremely serious" – doesn’t give details

A HYPOTHETICAL, BASED UPON RECENT EVENTS, AND THE CRYPTIC, THREATENING STATEMENTS BY TRUMP

So let’s say Trump’s been deceived into believing certain hyper critical lies by Mossad, (Motto: “d ‘By way of deception thou shalt do war’.)

For one example from an infinity of possibilities: maybe Trump really believed the “Official Version” lies behind 9/11 and now, he really believes the ‘official version’ of a ‘one crazed loner’ behind Las Vegas,

But then, on Saturday, one of his Chertoff types, (Israel-First/ US-Israel-Dual-Citizen) whispered in Trump’s ear: “the lone gunman in Las Vegas? It was an operation created by OBL and thought up by OBL in that permanent cave of his, and, no we haven’t killed him yet.” (Technically true because he died from renal failure in 2001.)

And yet in truth, it turns out Las Vegas was a Mossad job, from top to go, and then, the Mossad, claims to Trump, however, that Iran was behind Las Vegas.

To prove it, Israel whispered to Trump certain ‘hidden, unreleased, details’ from LV they claim they learned from their deep cover agent in Iran. However, they have no such agent, but would know all the secret details if they had done the job, in this hypothetical, and they want to convince the US that the party behind LV was Iran – and they succeed. So Trump orders a strike on bases in Iran, using conventional non nukes, thinking Iran did LV.

Iran then takes out half of the navy ships in the area with their anti ship missiles.

So then, the US lobs mini nukes at Iranian bases despite Russia and Chinese warnings.

Then, in retaliation, as promised, but Russia and China take out three US Aircraft carriers using their super high tech Zircon anti ship missile.

Then US starts launching nukes from subs…

The only thing certain to occur in any war is uncertainty.

Way to go Trump! (Sarcasm.)

Shock Discovery Reveals White House Given One Week Warning Of Las Vegas Massacre









 






An absolutely stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that the White House was given a one week warning about the CIA’s planned “false flag” massacre in Las Vegas when one of its plotters surrendered in Washington D.C. on Sunday, 24 September, exactly one week before this attack occurred on1 October—and with this known CIA gun runner being given a “deep cover” excuse for his arrest alleging mental illness, and his quickly being placed under the protection of US military forces at the Water Reed National Military Medical Center. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

According to this report, at approximately 07:00 -4 GMT (local time) on Sunday, 24 September, an American citizen named Timothy J. Bates presented himself at the White House Southwest Appointment Gate where he informed uniformed officers of the Secret Service that he needed to talk to US Navy Admiral Mike Rodgers (Director of the National Security Agency) about a planned CIA “false flag” operation being planned for later that day on innocent concert goers attending the Life Is Beautiful-2017 concert in Las Vegas, that then, in turn, would be blamed on “white supremacists”—with subsequent investigations proving that known CIA gun runner Stephen Paddock had, indeed, been planning to attack this concert.

In detailing this CIA “false flag” operation to US military forces loyal to President Trump, this report continues, Timothy Bates described how he was recruited by Stephen Paddock, in 2000, to be one of his gun runners—and whose CIA “deep cover” was established as his being a police officer for the City of Memphis, Tennessee—with Bates further noting that he worked with another of Paddock’s gun runners named Scott Edmisten, also from Tennessee—and whom the SVR reported this past week was Paddock’s highly skilled machinist used to remove serial numbers from weapons, and who was captured along with his arsenal on 2 October in Washington County, Tennessee.

Like Scott Edmisten, too, this report details, Timothy Bates had an arsenal of 20 weapons in the boot of his vehicle, including AK-47 style rifles and weapons with sound suppressors—and with his “deep cover” arrest story being that he was seeking payment of $28.7 million for his having participated in the CIA’s “Project MK Ultra” programme—and that had placed a microchip in his head that was causing him “severe headaches, shaking and convulsions”—and his then being placed in the custody of the US military for “mental evaluation”.

Important to note, this report explains, is that both Timothy Bates and Scott Edmisten were Stephen Paddock’s illegal gun smugglers to the Russia Mafia, who are presently embroiled in a continuing war with the Dixie Mafia for control of the CIA’s major drug smuggling routes from Mexico to the Southeastern regions of the United States—all of whom, though, were catastrophically shattered when FBI forces loyal to President Trump took down the top Russia Mafia leader in the United States, named Razhden Shulaya, whom the Obama regime had been protecting for nearly a decade—and whose 7 June capture in Las Vegas was the “ignition point” for the “Pyramid Sacrifice” massacre.

Though the CIA’s 24 September “false flag” massacre on the Life Is Beautiful-2017 in Las Vegas was able to be averted, this report continues, too numerous to count “dark web” chatter among US and British intelligence operatives clearly show that those US military and FBI forces loyal to President Trump were outmatched by their “Deep State” CIA adversaries—with the greatest fear being that a nuclear weapon device “was in play”—and that President Trump’s top aid, US Marine Lieutenant General John Kelly, who was leading the counterstrike against these CIA terrorists, had, also, been compromised after it was discovered that his phone was tapped.

“Dark Web” chatter among US and British intelligence operatives regarding Las Vegas massacre

The Western mainstream “fake news” propaganda media, also, this report continues, continues to be in lockstep with their CIA “master-overlords” in keeping from the American the truth about this “Pyramid Sacrifice” massacre—and that includes CBS News citing “anonymous sources” that Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, “was concerned about his mentally stability”; NBC News citing “anonymous sources” saying Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend said that he “would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, ‘Oh my God’”; ABC News citing “anonymous sources” claiming that Stephen Paddock “had a severe undiagnosed mental illness”; The Sun citing an “anonymous prostitute” claiming that Stephen Paddock was “obsessive and paranoid and would rant about conspiracy theories, including claiming 9/11 was an inside job by the US government”; and CNN News, basically, stating that Stephen Paddock was unknowable and no one would ever known what happened.

Standing against these “fake news” mainstream media propagandists and the CIA’s “narrative fixing” of this massacre using “anonymous sources”, however, this report notes, is an actual real live person named Lisa Crawford—who worked as a property manager in Texas for Stephen Paddock from 2006 to 2012 and knew him better than nearly everyone else—and who described Paddock as a laid-back ‘goofball’ who was cool to be with and always made everyone laugh, and who, also, “didn’t have a serious bone in his body”.

To the Stephen Paddock described by his close associate Lisa Crawford, this report concludes, shows a person well versed in CIA “deep cover” operations knowing how to create and maintain his “false/fake” persona—which is the very last thing the CIA and its “fake news” mainstream media sycophants will ever allow the American people to know the truth about.

Congressmen press White House to revoke Jared Kushner's and Ivanka Trump's security clearances

A pair of House Democrats sent a letter to White House counsel Don McGahn on Thursday calling on him to revoke the security clearances of two of President Trump’s top advisers: his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner.

In the letter, Reps. Don Beyer, D-Va., and Ted Lieu, D-Calif., cited concerns about Ivanka’s and Kushner’s reported use of private email, as well as issues with their ethics forms. A statement announcing the letter accused the couple of a “brazen disregard for ethics” and an “apparent intention to skirt good governance rules.”

The push from Lieu and Beyer, who are among the fiercest critics of the White House, comes after a slew of headlines about Ivanka’s and Kushner’s email usage. Last month, Politico reported that the couple used private email addresses to conduct White House business — a potential violation of ethics regulations. USA Today subsequently said their email traffic was rerouted through President Trump’s real estate company, the Trump Organization, in the wake of the revelations. According to CNN, McGahn’s office began conducting a review of White House officials’ use of private email following the reports.

“Recent press investigations highlight severe credibility issues with Ivanka Trump, a White House official, close advisor, and daughter to the President,” Beyer and Lieu wrote, adding, “The White House is conducting an investigation into the disturbing actions of Ms. Trump, Mr. Kushner, and others.”

The security-clearance issue has drawn added scrutiny because in last year’s election campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly attacked his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, for her use of a personal email address during her tenure as secretary of state.

Beyer and Lieu also pointed to a report published by McClatchy on Tuesday that said Ivanka and Kushner were fined $200 for missing deadlines for their required financial forms. The congressmen also cited a New Yorker article from Oct. 4 that detailed how Ivanka and President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., were “nearly indicted” in 2012 for allegedly misleading prospective buyers as they worked on one of Trump’s real estate developments.

“These new revelations, along with the ongoing White House probe of Ms. Trump’s private email use, have compromised Ms. Trump’s integrity and credibility. We are requesting that the White House immediately revoke her security clearance pending an investigation into her actions,” wrote Beyer and Lieu.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment when asked about the Democratic lawmakers’ letter. “We do not discuss security clearances,” she told Yahoo News Thursday.

Beyer and Lieu’s letter is the latest in an ongoing push by Democrats and other Trump administration opponents for Ivanka and Kushner to be removed from their roles as top White House advisers. Critics have argued it is inappropriate for the president’s family members to have senior roles in the West Wing. There also have been concerns about the pair’s security clearance forms. Kushner has updated his paperwork at least three times to disclose more than 100 meetings with foreign contacts.

Beyer and Lieu were among a group of five Democrats who wrote a letter to the FBI in April, calling for Kushner’s clearance to be revoked because of these omissions in his forms. The letter Beyer and Lieu sent to the White House counsel on Thursday reiterated the request to “immediately revoke [Kushner’s] security clearance.” In July, Beyer led a group of more than 20 Democratic members of the House of Representatives who asked for the FBI to review Ivanka’s security clearance forms in light of the revelations about her husband’s paperwork.
