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.

Making gun smuggling transfer in a Vegas hotel would be industrial strength stupid. Literally a thousand better places to do it without the crush of people and security.

I am not saying he wasn’t a gun trafficker, just that doing in a high rise hotel is/would be dumb.

That’s pretty much a given I think it’s more likely that Paddock was a patsy and a useful idiot to some of the powers-that-be I don’t see him designing this thing as an OP

I think the actual targets were the tanks.

Just a question from somebody not that familiar with ballistics, is there any chance that gunfire hitting the tanks was an unintended consequence of the long-distance firing towards the crowd, like ricochets that happened to hit these tanks? Or is that too big a bounce?

That’s a possibility but with the expertise that was used in setting up this op you would have thought they would have brought some high powered arms in if the tanks were really a target. Most likely they were an after thought.

Antifa got a playa or two on the street, and some heavyweights in the boardroom. Check ou “reds, greens, and blacks.”

If forced to reach for a conspiracy, Isis seems closest. Her birthplace, where her niece lived during her visit in 2014, and now today, 20 cruises to eastern Med and The Gulf for him, she was along for 9. Per CNN.

Two big of a deflection, for starters. With the .223 rounds, distance becomes a problem too.

There’s a... dichotomy... in expertise levels demonstrated by various aspects of this...event.

Clearly some money went into it, and some man-hours, but there are some...glaring weaknesses as well.

Maybe a rich accountant who plays video games did his best.

If not...a lot of doors seem to open.

If any doubts, follow the money first.

I’m starting to think the primary targets were the things he couldn’t stand controlling his life.

Gambling, alcohol, Las Vegas, MGM casinos and their perks for high rollers, the party lifestyle, and definitely himself, too.

He had a history of strategic planning that was easily capable of forecasting the events since Sunday. Global attention, miles of first person video, everyone looking for motive.

Whether or not those were his true objectives, he damaged or destroyed every single one of them.
