Just breaking. A lot of repots on Twitter from people.

True Pundit reported this:

An active shooter reportedly on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay bar Hotel in Las Vegas has gunned down at least one police officer and others.

Yes I watched the brother extensively. Original and current assessment, he’s an extremely lousy actor, way too expressive and demonstrative to be believable, and knows an awful lot more than he’s willing to talk about. If my kids were ever to pull a performance like that on me, a single glance would yank them up short in about 2 seconds.

I like the idea of cloud research. In this case I see a lot of possibilities raised, but no definitive Point established. While the cops may not be happy with the photos and videos from the crime scene being released I find a certain satisfaction in it. It tells me that this situation is very much too big to be contained or covered up. Most likely.

You mix crazy dad up with a script for benzos and you end up with a very real mathematical basis for a 40 to 50 standard magazine Massacre.

Targeting Avgas containers hmm? Would that have impact on the closing of the airport or was that simply due two concert fans running across the taxiways?

Well, I’m just guessing at things but it would probably accomplish both. Ppl were running past those tanks to get to the hangers/runways weren’t they? It could be he wasn’t shooting the tanks as much as just shooting as many people as possible. But there had to be a reason a boatload of tannerite was in the car besides as an air freshener.

I think you’re right. One report goes as far as to theorize that the sole reason for the east-facing firing position was for access to the aviation fuel tanks. If so this may even go towards answering your question about the location of the majority of his firearms. By all accounts he is a very calculating man.

He is very likely to have worked through numerous sequential scenarios in his mind perhaps even on paper or on computer prior to establish a master plan which he probably would have had in hand long before he began even preliminary execution.

He would likely have determined exactly where and why he wanted specific weapons and other stock piles.

When the unarmed hotel security guard knocked on his door he apparently executed a MAG dump up to 200 rounds through the door. Other reports indicate that he later became aware of law enforcement in that hallway, perhaps the for man team discussed earlier and Unleashed another barrage down the hallway sending them running. In the photos you see a bipod mounted AR variant on the floor through the breach doorway. Most likely no accident. This weapon was there for perimeter defense in conjunction with his security cameras and advance planning. In some ways these realizations raise significant concerns. As a man who does nothing without specific reason you have to wonder precisely what his plans were for the ammonium nitrate and Tannerite mention in news reports.

Raising another unpleasant possibility. Benzodiazepine is both widely and personally known to be a volatile substance. If the shooters prescription not simply a one-time event and never repeated, this may be all the motive we ever get.

That is exactly the kind of thing I would expect law enforcement to sit on.

A bolt gun in 308 with a four-round magazine is essentially a throwaway medium range precision shooting implement. I’d be very interested to know if he also purchased some glass to go with that.

If that firearm doesn’t turn up in his vehicles or homes there’s a good chance that if you find the rifle, you find his planned egress route.

The whole op has been blown wide open over the past two days.

Here is what is now being conjectured on various internet videos.

The entire op was well planned over months. Supposed perp Paddock was undercover FBI involved in gun running bigger than Benghazi. He was involved with antifa who were also involved with MS13 and ISIS.

One of the reasons for the op was to take Awan brothers and hillary investigation off the front pages of the driveby papers and tV,mission accomplished.stock manipulation also a possibility,alwasy follow the money. Audio of three shooters, receipt of three people eating hotel food in his room,perps possibly dressed as Hotel security, probably first thing they did was take over hotel cameras,we will never see any footage that is worth anything unless by accident.

I could go on but its apparent this was a cabal hit put forward by well trained terror types.

Well, at least Eric defies the family genetics, an gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling about the future of humanity.

Kind of like any emotional octopus does.

I’ve seen most or all of the theories floating around. Sheriff says others involved, ok, but I’m not sure who. I’ve moved away from worrying about the 4th floor strobe light. I’ve travelled with a lady who made me drag a lot more bags up Treasure Island than Paddock did up Mandalay, but I was a spry 51, not a fossilized 64. Right now, my biggest question is how Paddock went from being a letter carrier to making himself and his extended family rich.

Apparently not all that well trained. A well trained crew would of significantly increased the death count.

I guess if you’re dealing with MS-13 Antifa and Isis well-trained most likely takes on a whole new meaning

MS-13 has more than a few operators trained by the US military. Some even SpecOps soldiers. Antifa not so much.

Some of the speculation I’ve seen is that Paddock was involved with the FBI smuggling arms and also involved with MS-13 the Antifa and Isis at the same time.
maybe this turns out to be true maybe it doesn’t this is Raw news right now.unvetted. we just we just don’t know.
