Media Completely Ignores New FBI Info Suggesting Paddock Was a Vegas Arms Dealer

PaddockPaddock

New details have been released from the FBI’s investigation into the Las Vegas Shooting, and the information from suspect Stephen Paddock’s email account in the months leading up to the shooting is giving new insight into why he may have been hoarding two dozen guns in his hotel room.

The deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history was blamed on one man within hours, and the FBI has consistently claimed that Paddock was a “lone wolf” shooter who intentionally transported an arsenal of guns, ammunition, and supplies to his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, and then unleashed barrage of gunfire from the bedroom window that killed 58 people and injured more than 500.

While the surveillance footage from Paddock’s stay at the hotel has yet to be released, the newly unsealed court documents are finally giving some insight into his conduct in the months leading up to the shooting on Oct. 1.

An email exchange from [email protected], a Microsoft account FBI agents claimed was used by Paddock, was included in an affidavit reported by NPR. The date was July 6, 2017—about three months before the shooting—and while the FBI noted that it is unclear who is behind [email protected], the email account Paddock was contacting, the information included is significant.

“…[[email protected]] sent an email to [email protected] which read, ‘try an ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area,’ Later the day, an email was received back from [email protected] to [[email protected]] that read, ‘we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try.’ And lastly, [[email protected] sent an email to [email protected] that read, ‘for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.’ Investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack that occurred at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.”

In the first message, Paddock claimed that the recipient would have the opportunity to try out the weapons before they purchased them. He then wrote “We have huge selection,” indicating that he was not working alone, and he said he was located “in the Las Vegas area.”

While Paddock did live in Mesquite, Nevada, and reports claimed that he was a retired man living with his girlfriend, he made trips to Las Vegas often to gamble, and those who knew him described him as “low key and relaxed, a good guy.” His past included jobs with the IRS and the Department of Defense.

However, the email exchanges released by the FBI indicate that Paddock was presenting himself as some sort of arms dealer, sending an email that said, “for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.”

The email address Paddock was contacting responded and said, “we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try,” which as the report noted, left investigators wondering if Paddock was sending test emails to another account he owned, or if he was contacting another dealer or a customer.

Federal agents were granted warrants to search Paddock’s Facebook, Instagram and Amazon accounts, along with a locked phone that was found in the hotel room. These details are the first that have been released from Paddock’s online communications, and the documents also include significant details about what the FBI has learned about Paddock’s girlfriend.

Within hours of the time police named Stephen Paddock as the suspect in the shooting, his girlfriend Marilou Danley was also named publicly. Authorities claimed she was visiting family in the Philippines, and they ultimately determined that she was not complicit in the massacre.

In addition to reports claiming that Danley told investigators that her fingerprints may be on some of the bullets stored in Paddock’s home—and they were—the report from NPR also noted that the timeline of Danley’s Facebook account suggests that she knew Paddock was involved in something.

After the first reports of gunfire happened at 10:08 p.m. on Oct. 1, Danley’s Facebook account was set to private at 12:38 a.m. and then deleted entirely at 2:46 a.m. But it was not until 3:30 a.m. that Paddock’s name was publicly released as the suspect in the shooting.

There are a number of questions remaining about how the shooting unfolded, and as The Free Thought Project reported last week, MGM Resorts International is now claiming that the hotel staff at Mandalay Bay had at least 10 interactions with Paddock in the days before the shooting.

A spokesperson for MGM told The Las Vegas Review-Journal that the interactions on Oct. 1 consisted of a room service delivery and a visit from housekeeping, and even though members of the hotel staff are trained to report any suspicious activity, they did not find any reason to do so when interacting with Paddock.

“Mandalay Bay staff, room service and housekeeping had contact with Paddock or entered his suite more than 10 times over the course of his stay, including the three days leading up to October 1. There were numerous interactions with Stephen Paddock every day at the resort, including a room service delivery and a call with housekeeping on October 1, all of which were normal in nature.”

Explosive Documentary Reveals Potential Motive in Vegas Massacre, Exposes Police Cover Up

vegasvegas

Las Vegas, NV — As conspiracy theories run rampant online and in the media about the who, what, and why of the deadliest mass shooting in recent American history, a documentary has just revealed some incredibly telling information. In the new film, police are exposed for covering up the details of the shooting—because the casino allegedly paid them to.

Since the horrific massacre took place nearly three months ago, details and evidence presented by law enforcement have been scant at best. This is not a coincidence. One of the most telling details about the information in this case is the complete and literal blackout of any images or video that show Stephen Paddock in the Mandalay Bay casino.

While there has been much speculation as to why no video has been released, the documentary now provides an answer—the casino is playing a massive game of CYA (cover your ass).

The new film, titled, “What Happened in Vegas,” explores the role of the Las Vegas Police Department covering up the details of the shooting—for the sole benefit of their bosses in the casino. As to why the police department would deliberately keep secret what is likely the most sought-after information of 2017, the documentary explains that they are in the pocket of the casinos who would be liable for tens of millions in lawsuits because they failed to stop Stephen Paddock from killing 58 people that fateful night.

As Raw Story notes, at the root of the problem, the film explains, is that the LVPD is run by a sheriff elected in large part by donations from MGM, the corporation that runs the Mandalay Bay hotel. According to the documentary, Las Vegas police changed their story multiple times on the timeline of the shooting. One important detail the police lied about in several instances is the timing of Paddock’s shooting of security guard Jesus Campos. Why? It’s likely that the LVPD wanted to help the casino’s legal case, and if they claimed Campos was shot while trying to prevent Paddock’s rampage, as opposed to during or after, it could help the casino’s lawyers later claim that the Mandalay Bay had taken sufficient action to stop him. At least seven news organizations have since sued the LVPD for failing to release all the information from the night of the shooting, including the New York Times, the Associated Press, ABC, the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.

According to Stephen Stubbs, an attorney representing some of the victims in the shooting, Paddock was able to kill so many people that night because the casino treated him differently because he was a high roller. Instead of calling 911 when the shooting began, the casino called their “special back number” to a private wing of the police department in an attempt to keep the incident under wraps.

Because Paddock was a regular high roller at the casino, Mandalay bay didn’t call 911 and so dispatch was not able to link the shooting inside the hotel with the shooting a the Route 91 music festival.

“If they would’ve called 911, the 911 operator could have linked the two quicker, and the police would have gotten there quicker,” Stubbs said. “Less people would have died, and less people would have been shot if the Mandalay Bay didn’t treat their high rollers differently, and if the LVPD didn’t allow casinos to treat high rollers differently. This is the truth that [Sheriff] Joe Lombardo doesn’t want to come out.”

Given this information, the pieces of the puzzle now fall into place. As TFTP has previously reported, because of his high roller status, Paddock was also granted special privileges at the casino—like access to the service elevator.

One of the most asked questions about the massacre in Las Vegas was, “How did Stephen Paddock get hundreds of pounds of ammo and nearly two dozen assault rifles into his suite on the 32 floor of Mandalay Bay without anyone noticing?” Well, now we know—he was allowed to use the service elevator.

The fact that Paddock had access to the elevator, coupled with the fact that a special back line to police was called instead of 911—the casino now becomes complicit in allowing so many people to die that night.

We now have a motive for the parent company of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, MGM Resorts International, for paying a crisis management firm, Joele Frank, to spread disinformation about the massacre online. It keeps people confused so no one looks at them.

As TFTP noted at the time, the conspiracy theory report details how MGM International hired Joele Frank to run damage control in the wake of the deadly attack that left 58 people dead on Oct. 1. Michael’s report subsequently exposes ties between the crisis management firm and numerous Twitter accounts posting clearly bogus conspiracy theories about the mass-shooting, claiming “the shooting was fake, there was no blood, no victims, crisis actors, the whole nine-yards.”

While all this information helps us to put the cover up of the shooting by police into perspective, Stubbs delves further and offers up a convincing theory as to why Paddock did what he did. “From what I understand, Stephen Paddock did this because he wanted to hurt these casinos financially, and this was the best way he knew how.” However, because the casino responded the way they did, they became complicit in the death toll. “It didn’t have to be this bad,” Stubbs said, noting, “if they would have treated him like anyone else.”

Nearly 3 Months Since the Vegas Massacre, Police Silent, Still No Images of Paddock, & No Motive

vegasvegas

Las Vegas, NV — Strangely, almost three months after the the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history, authorities have still not announced a motive for the massacre, nor have they officially released a single image of the alleged shooter, Stephan Paddock, in Las Vegas prior to the incident.

What makes this seem odd is the fact that Las Vegas, and more specifically the Vegas strip, is arguably one of the most intensely surveilled places on the planet. This surveillance makes the fact that there has been no footage, not even a still image of Paddock in the Mandalay Bay, seem extremely suspicious.

Just this week, the Las Vegas coroner’s office confirmed that Paddock died of a reported self-inflicted single gunshot wound to the head. Also, amid their deafening silence on the matter, the only thing authorities have announced is that there would likely not be a motive released until next October — a full year after the shooting took place.

“Now that’s a long time for some people, but speaking for the FBI, that’s light speed, all right?” Aaron Rouse, Special Agent in Charge, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Wednesday.

Rouse said reports from other agencies investigating the mass shooting will be released at different times, but the FBI’s one is “focusing a large part on the why” which is “what everybody wants to know.”

According to a report by Fox News:

Rouse told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the FBI has interviewed around 400 people worldwide in connection to Paddock and has brought in the same number of specialists to help document evidence. He said the Route 91 Harvest music festival site took investigators 14 days to comb over, while Paddock’s room and hotel hallway at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino took 13. Important items found at both sites have been sent to the FBI’s central lab in Virginia.

 

He added that FBI investigators have 22,000 hours of surveillance and cellphone footage and 250,000 photos to look over, amounting to about 40 terabytes of data.

“We’re going to have, I think, the best digital schematic of what happened and where it happened and how it happened that you can come up with,” Rouse said.

“We didn’t leave anything uncovered,” Rouse told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “And again, the casinos, with their support, let us track down a lot of information of who may have had contact with that person. And it was very helpful to us.”

Given the public’s thirst for information about the incident, and the numerous conspiracy theories surrounding the massacre — some of which were discovered to be promoted by a PR firm hired by the parent company of the Mandalay Bay Casino — it seems odd that there has not been more transparency during the investigation.

The scant information released by investigators indicates that Stephen Paddock, 64, who by all accounts was independently wealthy and a Vegas high-roller, opened fire on a music festival from a 32nd-floor hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Casino.

The massacre left 58 dead and 546 injured, yet nearly three months later and there are still few answers – even to the most basic of questions.

Even more strange is the fact that the case has been jettisoned from the 24/7 mainstream media cycle, despite the fact that the most basic of questions have yet to be answered.

Previously, The Free Thought Project brought forth a number of facts that seem to raise more questions than answers:

  1. The official timeline of the mass shooting has been changed at least three different times.

2. Paddock wired $100,000 to an account located in the Philippines a week prior to the massacre.

3. Investigators claim Paddock’s laptop was missing its hard drive when they found it in his hotel room.

4. Paddock reportedly took cruises that made port stops in the Middle East.

5. Authorities now claim an officer discharged his weapon in Paddock’s hotel room – after denying it for the first month after the attack. (This raises the question of why police discharged a weapon if Paddock had already committed suicide prior to law enforcement breaching the room? And why they lied about it after the fact.)

6. Security guard Jesus Campos, who reportedly came across Paddock as he began his attack was allegedly shot in the leg, but a spokesperson for UMC Quick Care, the walk-in health clinic facility Campos supposedly went to after being shot, said they had “heard nothing” about Campos visiting them.

7. During an interview on Fox News with Tucker Carlson, an attorney for the victims revealed that not only did police officers respond to Campos after he was shot, they were right outside of Paddock’s door before he began shooting out of his hotel room window.

“As of yesterday it was that two—we knew about Campos—but there were two other police officers from MGM that were on the floor prior to the shooting,” Craig Eiland said.

So the question remains as to whether there is a tight-lipped, professional, investigation taking place, or a thorough cover-up in action.

The complete silence from law enforcement, in such a high-profile case, raises some serious questions about the potential for some type of cover-up taking place.

Why is there no investigative coverage of Vegas shooting by major media organizations?

Why did the story simply vanish from the news cycle with so much public interest and so many unanswered questions?

The fact that there have been virtually no answers to any of the questions that have arisen from the official story not adding up, while simultaneously being blacked out by the mainstream mass media, could potentially indicate an intentional soft-censoring of the Vegas mass shooting… the only question is why?

Please share this important information. Let us know what you think is going on in the comments!

Golden Knights Weekly Wraparound: Vegas takes the show on the road in 2018

With a 23-9-2 record in their inaugural National Hockey League season, the expansion Vegas Golden Knights are celebrating the holidays in style right now. The team just finished a five-game home stand at T-Mobile Arena with four wins and an overtime shootout loss, and now the Golden Knights will spend most of the next six weeks on the road. 

Over the next 20 games, through the first week of February 2018, Vegas is a traveling show on ice as 14 of those matchups will be away from Sin City. The toughest part comes at the end, when the Golden Knights play six straight on the road from January 30 to February 8. While Vegas has proven itself time and time again, this still will be a brutal stretch of hockey for the NHL’s newest darlings.

What Happened Last Week?

The Golden Knights took on two of the best teams in the NHL this season last week at T-Mobile, and they beat them both—albeit in very different fashion. On Tuesday, it took a last-second goal, literally, to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning, the squad with the best record in the league, and on Saturday, Vegas tossed its second shutout in franchise history, a 3-0 victory over the Washington Capitals.

It was an impressive display of team capability, in that the Golden Knights are finding different ways to win every time out, and it’s proven very difficult to beat Vegas on that Sin City ice. The Golden Knights and the Lightning have the best home-ice records in the NHL currently (15-2-1), so the rematch in Florida on January 18 will be a special game.

Three Stars

1. G Marc-Andre Fleury: This guy is amazing. At age 33 now, he’s playing very youthful hockey. Fleury made 61 saves on 64 shots last week against Tampa Bay and Washington, and the shutout against the Caps was the 55th one of his career–including the postseason. He is now 3-0-1 since returning to the active roster after suffering a concussion in October.

2. D Shea Theodore: He posted four points against the Lightning, assisting on the first three goals and then scoring the game winner himself with less than three seconds on the clock in the third period. It was only Theodore’s second goal of the year, but it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Golden Knights.

3. C Jon Marchessault: Playing a big role in both wins, he also celebrates his 27th birthday on Wednesday this week. Marchessault notched three points in the two victories last week, while winning 13 of 23 face-off chances as well. His goal against Tampa Bay late in the second period tied up the score after Vegas had fallen behind 2-0 in the first period, and it gave the Golden Knights momentum heading into the third period. It was also his 100th NHL point.

Highlight of the Week

It has to be Theodore’s game-winning score against the Lightning, as Vegas sort of had to win this game twice in the third period. The Golden Knights took the 3-2 lead early in the final frame, before Fleury allowed a rare bad goal with under four minutes left in the game. Theodore got him off the hook, however, and T-Mobile exploded.

What’s Next for the Golden Knights?

Vegas has three games this week, the first two on the road in Los Angeles and third back at T-Mobile on New Year’s Eve. It’s nice that the guys got to spend both Christmas and New Year’s at home, for sure. That was a kind gift from the NHL scheduling office for an expansion team.

First up is the Anaheim Ducks (16-13-8) on Wednesday, followed by the L.A. Kings (22-11-4) on Thursday. Look for goaltender Malcolm Subban to start against the Ducks with Fleury coming in to face the Kings. Vegas is tied atop the Pacific Division with the Kings, so this is a big showdown.

Then, it’s the Toronto Maple Leafs (22-14-1) at T-Mobile next Sunday afternoon. If you’re in Sin City for the New Year, you might as well check out the Golden Knights in the afternoon, right?

Vegas Police Captain Behind Gunfire Location System Reported Missing, ‘Endangered’

vegasvegas

UPDATE: The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reports Capt. James Larochelle has been found as is safe.

Original story:

Las Vegas, NV — Moments ago, Las Vegas Metro police department announced that they have launched a search for one of their police captains who they say has been missing since early this morning.

Capt. James LaRochelle was last seen about 2 a.m. driving a tan 1998 Land Rover with Nevada plates 592JBV near Desert Foothills Drive and Charleston Boulevard, police said.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, LaRochelle is the commander with Metro’s Organizational Development Bureau. Last month, he publicly introduced the Shotspotter pilot program to allow police to pinpoint the origin of gunshots with acoustic technology.

The Shotspotter program is part of a one-year pilot that uses sensors to triangulate the source of gunfire. It was brought about in response to the horrific shooting which took place in October.

According to the police department, the captain is not only missing but his condition is considered “endangered.” They have provided no other details to the public other than asking for help.

Anyone who knows of Larochelle’s location is asked to call the LVMPD Missing Persons Detail at 702-828-3111 or 702-828-2907.

What makes this case especially worrisome is the fact that this captain has gone missing during one of the most secretive and corrupt investigations in the history of the country.

As TFTP reported earlier this month, we have found out more about multiple other terror attacks in the hours after they occurred than we have about the case of Stephen Paddock.

In spite of the tens of thousands of cameras throughout the Las Vegas area and inside the Mandalay Bay Casino—not a single video nor even a still image from a surveillance camera has been released.

Why haven’t authorities released a single image of Paddock carrying a bag into the hotel? Why haven’t authorities released a single image of Paddock sitting down at one of the many slot machines at which he was alleged to have used his girlfriend’s point card?

Indeed, there was surveillance footage released of Stephen Paddock immediately after the shooting. However, this video was obtained by NBC news—from a different hotel, six years ago.

How is it that NBC was able to get surveillance footage from six years ago, almost immediately after the shooting, and police can’t release a single image of Paddock at the Mandalay Bay Casino during his stay and before he shot himself in his hotel room?

It is ridiculous to consider the fact that most of the information the public has about Stephen Paddock and what went on inside Mandalay Bay has not come from police. Instead, it has come from citizens with access to certain information and leaked to the press. In fact, police seem to want the public to remain entirely in the dark about what happened as they continue to change their story and they actually publicly noted that they wanted to punish the person who leaked the photos of Paddock’s suite to the news.

Department Undersheriff Kevin McMahill noted in October:

“There was a question about the validity of the crime scene photos that somebody had leaked. I can confirm those are, in fact, photos from inside of the room; they are in fact photos of our suspect, and as the sheriff mentioned previously, we have all opened up an internal investigation to determine the source of the leaks of those photos to the public.”

Now, the person who was implementing the new system to detect gunfire has suddenly disappeared. Ominous indeed.

Why Are There Paintings Depicting Ritual Abuse On Display at the Las Vegas Courthouse?

Disturbing paintings depicting various scenes of ritual abuse are on display near the entrance of the Lloyd George Federal Courthouse in Las Vegas. 

The official website of the United States District Court of Nevada states:

“The cornerstone of the Amercian judicial system is the trial courts … in which witnesses testify, juries deliberate and justice is done.”
– William H. Rehnquist, Chief Justice of the United States

If that is the case, why are there paintings of birds raping people displayed at the Las Vegas Courthouse?

According to Redoubt News:

These paintings were hung in the very front of the courthouse, next to the main entrance. (…) These are reportedly created by local high school students. Their teacher said to one of the complainants, “They are learning that they don’t identify people by their faces.”

The article states that nobody at the courthouse took responsibility for okaying these paintings.

A closer look at these paintings reveals that their message goes way beyond “Don’t identify people by their faces” (whatever that means). Indeed, the paintings are replete with imagery and symbolism relating to Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) and trauma-based mind control (known as Monarch Programming). They tell a disturbing story of abuse at the hand of extremely evil people, which leads me to doubt that those were made by high school students.

Here are the paintings. Warning: Graphic imagery.
