    Was looking at LVegas shooting videos and thought the following might be of some interest.


    There does not seem to be any bullet holes in any of the buildings, tents, billboard etc.? Paddock would have to be a skilled shot to accomplish that feat at that distance with a bump stock don’t you think? The set of videos were taken from the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

    The following was pinned by hangman1128 in the Part 4 comments

    I'll tell you a crazy story. I took the footage of the 4 FBI Clean Up videos. I went to Vegas to see for myself. I booked a room at the Mandalay Bay hotel and they put me on the same side as the broken window and not far away but on a different floor. I look pretty shady to begin with and had talked with numerous hotel employees about the shooting. Later that night, security pulled me aside twice and confronted me about talking to hotel employees. After that it felt like everyone was watching me and I headed up to my room. I checked out at 4am the following morning and felt relieved to get out of there. As I was leaving Vegas I received a phone call from a 12 digit number that came up on caller ID - UNITED STATES-- and when I answers the caller hung up. When I tried to return the call, it said the number was unavailable but would leave a message that said " location number" followed by a series of numbers. Every time I called this number the location number in the recording would change. If I stayed in one place the number would remain the same. You talk about weird. I called a friend of mine who is in law enforcement and he said this was a government number. Did security notify the FBI that they had someone asking questions in the casino and wanted to track my movements after I left the hotel? This is the number that called and I must have called it a hundred times and it changes every time. +1 650727498050 Another weird thing was a couple days later this guy shows up at my door acting like he is selling home security systems and asked me if I had security. Not going to disclose my home securities, but I kindly told him that I had plenty of security and didn't need what he was selling if he was actually selling anything at all. I'm definitely on high alert!!!​





    I don’t really understand why they had this ceremony, but they keep pushing the story about the two “heroes” Campos and Schuck for some reason. I just don’t see how what they did is considered heroic action. You might call them accidental heroes.





    Other interesting tidbits

    28:40 “We got kicked out of our hotel because there was a shooter in the hotel” video as they stand outside the Luxor.
    31:05 “Shutting down might not be a good idea. There’s active shooters on the runway.” “The 19s are closed, we are in the process of trying to round them up. They’re on the airport property.”





    0:22 Why were the lights turned on allowing the shooter(s) a better view of the area?

    10 Compelling Reasons Why the Vegas Shooting Has Disappeared from Headlines

    NOVEMBER 15, 2017

    [​IMG]By Jay Syrmopoulos

    With the 24/7 news cycle constantly in full swing, important stories at times get lost in the constant onslaught of non-stop information. The mainstream media gatekeepers essentially dictate what social and cultural memes are injected into the public consciousness, what topics are discussed, and which cases are given publicity and thoroughly investigated with journalistic rigor.

    With such oligarchical control of the mass media – the media gatekeepers of information decide what stories stay in the glare of the public spotlight, and which ones are allowed to fade from the headlines.

    Without question, one would reasonably expect the most deadly mass shooting in recent American history, which took place in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017, to maintain a strong presence in the headlines — especially given the lack of answers surrounding the case.

    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 one and a half months later and there are still few answers – even to the most basic of questions.

    Now, a month and a half later, there are few answers to the most deadly mass shooting in recent U.S. history – and perhaps even more strange – 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.

    One would assume that such a high-profile case would garner widespread interest from investigative teams across the spectrum of major broadcast mass media and cable news, and yet, there are no penetrating journalistic investigations delving into the many unanswered questions.

    In fact, coverage and investigation into the highly dubious shooting are virtually non-existent outside of online alternative news media.

    Here are the few facts that we know thus far, and they 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.


    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.

    8 – Eiland also noted that MGM Grand claims to have a “corporate watch center” that trains its employees to report any suspicious activity. So if a guest arrived at Mandalay Bay Hotel with 27 rifles and 5,000 rounds of ammunition stored in 10 bags, why didn’t the employees who helped him, or the cleaning service who visited his room regularly, report suspicious activity? And if they did, why wasn’t it addressed?

    9 – On Halloween, a suspect, identified as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, rented a pickup truck, drove it onto a busy bicycle path and mowed down innocent people. Almost immediately after the horrific attack that left 8 dead and a dozen more injured, video of Saipov, an Uzbekistan native, was released. There has yet to be a single image of Stephen Paddock released from the thousands of cameras inside and outside of the Mandalay Bay Casino.

    10 – Campos disappeared days after the shooting, reportedly leaving the country, thus, being a no-show to numerous scheduled television news interviews. Upon his return to the U.S., he did a softball, scripted, interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show where no penetrating journalism, nor tough questions were asked. The interview was almost comical in the sense that DeGeneres did more narrating of the actual events than Campos, which allowed for him to not divulge any information.



    So why did Jesus Campos leave the country in the middle of an investigation into the most-deadly mass shooting in recent American history? Why did he refuse to do the news interviews, and instead opt for a scripted daytime talk show?

    The Mandalay Bay, and all of the Vegas Strip for that matter, are some of the most heavily survielled areas on the planet — yet we have seen no video footage, or even stills — of Paddock.

    Additionally, as we previously reported, 4 survivors of the attack have died under somewhat questionable circumstances.

    As a report from ZeroHedge notes:

    Notably, both Kymberley Suchomel and Danny Contreras both publicly claimed there were multiple gunmen the night of the mass shooting. Dennis and Lorraine Carver died after their Mercedes smashed into a metal gate and exploded into flames.​


    Per CNN:

    The couple’s youngest daughter, 16-year-old Madison Carver, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that she heard the crash from her bedroom. When she ran outside and down the street to find out what had happened, she recognized her family’s vehicle in flames.

    By the time their daughter heard the crash (which only happened about a half mile from the Carver’s home) and ran down the road to see what had happened, the car was engulfed in flames… Much like everything else pertaining to the Vegas shooting, the story just doesn’t make sense.​

    There still has been no motive released for the massacre.

    The complete silence from law enforcement in such a high-profile case raises 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, seems to indicate an intentional soft-censoring of the Vegas mass shooting… the only question is why?

    Over a month and a half later – and we know exactly as much as we did in the immediate aftermath of the attack… virtually nothing.

    Contrast that to the recent attack in New York where a detailed picture of the suspect and his activities in the hours and days before the attack was public within hours.…

    …yet in the case of Stephen Paddock, we still know nothing a month and a half later.

    The official narrative does not add up in the Las Vegas attack, and the public needs to be sure to hold the lamestream media and those investigating the massacre accountable.

    It’s clear that this story is being censored by legacy media in an effort to keep the American public in the dark about the exact details surrounding the most-deadly mass shooting in recent U.S. history.

    Out of respect for the memory 58 dead and 546 injured — we need to ask why this investigation is being blacked-out and hidden from the public.

    Do we really believe that after the most-deadly mass-shooting in America, and with few answers, everyone just decided they didn’t care about the who, what, where, why, and how of the attack?

    Please share this important story to help increase public awareness regarding the numerous oddities surrounding the Vegas mass-shooting — and the ongoing media blackout!

    Hopefully the financial pain of the lawsuits will force someone to tell the truth...

    @ Goldhedge: Nice article BUT there is one thing missing.

    The FBI found out that Paddock 'was not a muslim thingy-bobby' really quick. So like the thing in new York the narrative came out pretty fast.

    As far as the Vegas thing I am tending to think that with all the 'things' going on it just shows that the shadow police are actively off the hollyweed script. I wonder when the movie is coming out? I mean come on the compost goes right to the spinners of drama instead of the news?

    In my opinion, the massive legal liability by the Mandalay Bay hotel and partners is probably the most likely reason for all the delay, the lack of information, misinformation, etc. Money talks, BS walks, and we're probably talking about half a trillion in liability between all the dead and injured and traumatized people who were present at the concert that night. Some law office somewhere probably filed the class action within 12 hours and the Mandalay Bay has been mum ever since...and possibly brought influence to bear within the LVPD.

    Exposing The Police Cover-Up Of The Vegas Shooting | What Happened In Vegas Ep. 7
    Journeyman Pictures



    Published on Dec 19, 2017
    As part of his investigation into the LVMPD, filmmaker Ramsey Denison spoke to journalists working on the Vegas shooting to uncover the truth of what happened on that night in the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Part 7 on the ongoing What Happened in Vegas web series.

    Watch the full doc to uncover the whole story behind America's most controversial police department in the wake of the biggest mass shooting in US history:

    When TV editor Ramsey Denison was jailed for simply reporting police brutality on the Las Vegas strip, he was inspired to investigate the Las Vegas Police Department. His investigation would lead him right up to the biggest mass shooting in American history. In this damning exposé, he reveals that the police know more than they are letting on about what really happened at the Mandalay Bay Resort, where 59 people were killed. Uncovering a long legacy of cavalier methods and dire consequences, civilian fatalities, unconstitutional arrests and embellished crime reports, this doc paints an incriminating picture of a police department where the officers are above the law.

    I'm thinking the reason the media is not reporting on this shooting is mainly the 'narrative.' They do not know how to report on a few things that happen simultaneously. K, case in point:
    Gun deal went bad.
    Assassins after a Saudi.

    Now which of these was the actual starting point of the shooting? All they/MSM can come up with is 'lone gunman' and that is all they have so according to them, the cops, fbi it is and has been a done deal.

    One thing I would like to point out is the inherent formations of a News Paper article. All you have to do is read about the first sentence of each paragraph in it to understand the gist of what is trying to be conveyed. the rest of the paragraph is just filler. So the head/lead line grabs ones attention and all the first sentences are the story. Here at the Las Vegas fiasco there are at least two things going on and they cannot fit that into a one sentence lead on a paragraph because they think they will lose their readers. And, I think it is the same with the other outlets of media; I am thinking that they think the reader/listener/viewer will become confused.

    And, You know what happens when confused people start to think, yeah. When people start to think they figure it out and that ruins the narrative. And, a media without a narrative is and will be ignored and then there goes the advertising and the paychecks and.....the healthcare and the daycare and.....

    Most of those killed died from a single gunshot wound, according to the coroner’s office. Four victims sustained multiple gunshot wounds.

    Twenty-one people were shot in the head, 36 died with chest and back wounds and one — Rocio Guillen of Corona, California — died of a gunshot to the leg, according to a chart the coroner released.

    What caliber was used in the attack? Were there bullets recovered for forensic analysis? If so, do the bullets match any of the rifles recovered in the hotel room?

    None of these questions will ever be answered!

    whoa-a-Nellie, just settle down their horsie.

    21 head shots?
    these 36 with chest wounds, yeah I can go with that but head shots on a bump fire? I seriously would think with the spray.....OH yeah, darn it I forgot 500 people were wounded, oops, my bad. Poor Rocio must have been clipped in an artery with a large exit, sounds like a ricochet.

    But when I read the headline of 'One Year' I was like: one year to make something up because they know nothing now so they will know nothing then. At least they determined within a few hours the patsy was not a worshipping Muslim, I mean that in its self has to mean something. Oh yeah right, they already knew what was going on but din't wana tip their hand.

    These shits are bad poker players.

    edited to add: Holie cow pies it just occurred to me that as the spray of lead was raining down and the shooters were targeting running people should not some of those head shots have other entry wounds? Darn it Nellie quit prancing around don't cha know only Roy Rodgers the Lone Ranger, John Wayne and Regis (yes regis) can hit moving targets off of a suddenly non moving platform.

    Yeah maybe I should have expanded upon that but that's kind of why I posted it seems a little outrageous to me. But what do I know.

    You do realize everything said by anyone re: the LV massacre who claims to be officials is spouting out and out lies, right? It's yet another massive coverup of biblical proportions which make 911 look like a Disney ride

    No need I caught it. I would like to see the entire list of casualties just for the perspective of it all. What would be really cool would be to know which way the people were facing when injured but that would be a herculean task of epic proportions and the coroner is already overworked.

    Maybe someone will get around to it, oh about in a year of so but if it comes from the gumbyment then it will be full of as many holes as rounds were shot. I mean they have now come out with Paddock did a single inside the mouth, ummm? I remember his after picture of him with his eyes in the same location as his before pictures, meaning there was no pressure wave from the powder....more like a spike got him than something traveling 1K per second.

    The longer the investigation, the more time to inject myriad media distractions; not to mention the short memory spans of the majority masses.

    The truth was available in the first 48 hours, but has since been cleansed.

    That would explain the two single gunshots that were heard ten seconds apart after the last of the rapid fire was over.

    It's in this vid shot from in front of the hotel. Lots of rapid fire, then two single shots ten seconds apart. Then no more shooting at all.
    ...and the two single shots do not sound the same as the previous rifle fire.

    First 4 minutes is the only part with any shots heard. The two single shots are about 3:30 mark.

    They ae noticeably quieter than the other shots.
    ...and the people recording it were probably like a football field's distance from the room. 9mm rounds are certainly audible from that distance.

    THIS is probably the #1 reason why official stories are changing and there's a lack of discussion and video evidence. Corporations and government(s) are "lawyering up" and putting injunctions out, I'm sure.

    ‘I’ve Never Seen That’: FBI Admits MGM Keeping Paddock Weapons Footage Secret
    A bombshell revelation on the Vegas Massacre was just exposed showing that not even the FBI has seen the surveillance video of Stephen Paddock.

    By
    Jay Syrmopoulos
    -
    January 10, 2018

    [​IMG]
    Las Vegas, NV – Any chance of a successful cover-up in the case of the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay massacre just got exponentially more difficult to successfully pull off, as new information provided by an FBI source with direct knowledge of the investigation has revealed that the FBI has yet to see ANY surveillance video of alleged gunman Stephen Paddock bringing weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition to his 32nd-floor hotel suite in Mandalay Bay into the hotel.

    “No one has seen that on the video we were provided by MGM,” an FBI official told True Pundit. “Vegas (PD) has looked at the same video. Paddock is on surveillance video but the guns are not. He’s not carrying bags or cases with rifles.”

    These latest revelations in the investigation into the massacre of 58 people in Las Vegas raise serious and startling questions as to the veracity of the official story of what took place on Oct. 1.

    So, if Paddock isn’t shown bringing cases, bags, weapons or ammo into the hotel, then just what is going on? How did the numerous rifles get into Paddock’s hotel suite?

    Interestingly, the FBI source confirmed that he believes there could, in fact, be surveillance footage that proves Paddock transported the weapons into the Mandalay Bay hotel – but that MGM Resorts International, the parent company of the hotel, could be obstructing the investigation by hiding the video.

    “They (MGM) control the surveillance video,” an FBI source told True Pundit. “I have never seen that in any other case. We (the FBI) control the physical evidence.”
    This would seem to comport with what The Free Thought Project previously reported regarding MGM International allegedly hiring elite crisis management firm Joele Frank to spread disinformation about the massacre online.

    According to a bombshell report, published by Thomas Michael on Medium, the crisis management firm deliberately spread outlandish conspiracy theories on social media in an attempt to discredit legitimate inquiry into the bizarre official narrative—actively working to try and muddy the water about events surrounding the mass-shooting.

    The report details how MGM International hired Joele Frank to run damage control in the wake of the deadly attack. 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.”

    Advertisment
    The report goes on to explain how Michael discovered that a significant portion of the disinformation on Twitter concerning the Las Vegas massacre was originating from an account with the handle @DeepStvte.

    Curiously, the @DeepStvte account is heavily connected with bots, which helped it spread nonsensical conspiracy theories about the shooting, according to GotNews.

    Michael then made a number of disturbing discoveries upon further investigation:

    “Now, here is where it gets really weird. Sifting through every reply on the DeepStvte account, I discovered someone who made a few replies in the comment sections — an individual by the name of Mr. Scott Bisang, handle @sbis85. Upon further research, Mr. Bisang is the Head Manager of Joele Frank, the crisis management firm that Mandalay Bay hired after the 1 October Shooting. So, when I searched his Twitter to find his comments on the Las Vegas Massacre again for this piece, all of the posts/replies had been deleted.”

    The Medium report goes on to expose an intentional disinformation campaign by the crisis management firm to confuse people who are seeking answers to the tragic Las Vegas massacre:

    “Furthermore, the REAL conspiracy theories that were being propagated by the above mentioned Twitter handles were pushing stories such as the shooting was fake, there was no blood, no victims, crisis actors, the whole nine-yards; while simultaneously discrediting any viable theories made by the public. These are, without question, professionals. And, when I mean pushing their real conspiracy theories: they were getting 7.5M impressions at one point in October on Twitter. This was a direct disinformation campaign designed to lure folks who were questioning the official narrative into being told fairy-tales about what actually happened that night, and thus become discredited as ‘conspiracy theorists’ after they rattle off some absurd story that they were told by one of those Twitter handles.”

    So why would MGM International be trying to run a cover-up?

    A new documentary provides a startling answer—the casino is playing a massive game of CYA (cover your ass)!

    The 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.

    The reason the police would go along with this is simple, as the documentary explains that they are simply in the pocket of the Las Vegas mega-casinos, which would be liable for tens to hundreds of millions in lawsuits due to extreme negligence in failing to stop Stephen Paddock from killing 58 people that fateful night because of the special treatment given to casino high-rollers.

    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. 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.

    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 at 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.

    Additionally, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo has was called a “liar” by a high-ranking insider from the Clark County District Attorney’s Office, according to True Pundit. The DA source claims that Lombardo has not told the truth about his SWAT unit firing its weapons after breaching Paddock’s hotel door.

    “He’s a liar,” the DA source told True Pundit of Lombardo. “This is one of the premier SWAT units in the United States. Other police departments pay to train with them here (in Las Vegas). They do not accidentally fire weapons. That is pure fiction.”

    After claiming for weeks there were no shots fired by police and Paddock killed himself, Lombardo revised his statements to claim that an “accidental” gunshot fired by LVMPD – but only a week after True Pundit, On Oct. 24th, published audio from Las Vegas Metro SWAT that exposed the sheriff’s lies.

    According to a report from True Pundit:

    The audio provided a raw and chilling feed from Las Vegas Metro SWAT and confirmed officers did engage in gunfire after breaching Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s hotel suite, directly contradicting FBI and police claims that Paddock killed himself.

    According to the audio, Paddock was likely gunned down by LVMPD’s elite “Zebra Unit” SWAT force. A SWAT officer code named “Zebra20” and apparent leader of the team’s strike force who led the raid on Paddock’s Mandalay Bay suite reported on police radio that one member of his team did open fire inside Paddock’s room.

    Lombardo for weeks, along with FBI officials, claimed no shots were fired and Paddock killed himself. Then Lombardo admitted a gun was fired by Las Vegas Metro after entering Paddock’s room, essentially backing True Pundit’s original story that detailed shot(s) were indeed fired by SWAT.

    If a SWAT officer fired his weapon in Paddock’s hotel room it was to subdue or kill Paddock, the DA insider said.

    “We have one SWAT officer that did fire,” the SWAT strike force team leader said, according to the audio transcript.

    Zebra20 then reported no other people were injured during the breach, alluding Paddock was the sole casualty.

    “We just have one suspect down at this point in time,” he said.

    So what is really going on?

    Clearly, the events heard on the audio reveal at least part of the official narrative to be fallacious and directly contradict both Sheriff Lombardo and the FBI’s Aaron Rouse, head of the FBI’s Las Vegas field office.

    Only days after the massacre the DA insider told True Pundit that Lombardo was simply a puppet of the FBI.

    Apparently, both Lombardo and the FBI brass are covering for MGM International and its billion-dollar interests – which leaves one glaring question; who is looking out for the victims of this heinous crime and their families?

    Please share this important information to help people more clearly understand the ongoing cover-up by MGM International and the continuing victimization of the families affected by the Las Vegas massacre!

    I'm a big fan of the Arab hit squad (or Mossad depending on what side of the bed I got out of that morning) there to assassinate some hi ranking Arab sheik. As I understand it someone sniffed them out and the sheik's body guards invoked the Holy Shit action plan and got him out of there. From that point it gets blurry as to what happened next but eventually there was military type gunfire (bump fire stock :belly laugh:)that killed a bunch of folks to cover up.......what???

    Maybe MGM has that missing hard drive from Paddocks laptop too. You know, the one where he used it to watch the hallways with the cameras he set up out there but after all was said and done, he popped himself in the head and as he did that his laptop spit out the hard drive and flushed itself down the toilet or something.
    Oh and can a corporation like MGM really withhold substantial evidence from the FBI without having their corporate offices smashed in and destroyed in a search for that evidence?
