Skip to comments.The Las Vegas Shooting: People Are Still Dying
Posted on 11/05/2017 6:02:57 AM PST by EyesOfTX
In fact, the mainstream news media has monolithically just moved on from reporting on the largest mass shooting in modern times almost altogether. Oh, CNN will occasionally spit out the obligatory meaningless story about Sheriff Joe Lombardo telling a local Las Vegas TV host that he suspects that Paddocks girlfriend might be hiding something (Gosh, you think?) and that the killer had gambling debts (Wow! What a revelation!), but there is literally no investigative reporting by anyone in the mainstream news media going on related to the mass killing, and hasnt been since a few days after the event.
If any of this surprises you, look at it this way: If the CIA had 40 operatives in the handful of mainstream media outlets that existed in our country in 1963, think about how many operatives the CIA, Homeland Security and the myriad other federal intelligence agencies that have propagated in the last half-century probably have working at these fake news outlets today.
The government has its official narrative related to the Las Vegas massacre: a lone gunman whose motives are not clear even to his own family members, obtaining firearms in the months leading up to the event, who shot from a window high up in a building overlooking the killing field, a man who had held jobs with the federal government for years prior to the event .
Wait, am I describing Lee Harvey Oswald, or Stephen Paddock? Odd, huh?
If all of this makes me sound like a conspiracy theorist, well, Im ok with that. Id much rather be labeled a conspiracy theorist than a blind parrot.

They have buried it already. It pained them badly to have to report it, including the undeniable fact that a m*slim had murdered innocent people and yelled allaku f*ckbar in doing so. But they now have laid the story to rest. We will never hear about it again, just like we have not heard ONE WORD about the m*slim cop who murdered a woman in Minneapolis and who was defended by the police and the m*slim-loving carpet-m*nching mayorette.
One big coverup may be that Jesus Campos is an illegal alien. It would explain a lot of the hush hush.
The mainstream media has moved on, because they already made their point - gun control, and that is the only narrative they assigned, wanted to assign or will assign to the Las Vega disaster. They have no desire to destroy their own narrative with any investigation that could produce facts contrary to that narrative. That charade by the media is no mystery.
Latest I heard on this deranged, frustrated lunatic was that he had been losing his azz at the casinos in recent years, in the millions. Reports of him purchasing $10,000-30,000 in chips per day! I’m pretty sure these reports came from the FBI.
Aldeans lawyer is dead. Anyone have theory. I havent been following this
He wasnt losing. He was laundering money...
Very possible a casino or two was in on it. Paddock was a member of organized crime, perhaps a hit man too.
Funny how the media is completely uninterested in this guy’s motivation/background.
The gunman who sprayed bullets down on a Las Vegas country music festival, killing 58 and injuring hundreds more, was a high-stakes gambler who lost a significant amount of wealth in the years leading up to the massacre, according to the citys sheriff.
Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said theyre looking into the mindset of shooter Stephen Paddock and suggested his financial decline could have been a determining effect on why he decided to do what he did.
Still, many questions remain unanswered in the case, Lombardo said during an hour-long interview with KLAS. He said he hoped understanding Paddocks mindset and personality would offer insight into the deadly incident as well as the gunmans possible motive.
There was something that popped his trigger or caused him to go into that direction and we have yet to determine what that is, he said. I hope we find something in the pathology of his brain that helps us understand.
Lombardo explained FBI profilers are still working on their analysis of the shooter, though preliminary findings indicate a narcissistic personality as well struggles with depression. ...
I knew after the shooting in Orlando, where there was no denying the Islamic motive, and we see what happened. It is mostly ignored except to bring up gun control, and the Jihadist motivation is blatantly ignored.
A squad of Jihadists could illegally enter the country and bring their guns with them. They could commit an atrocity, be caught and tried and talk constantly about their motivation, and all the media would talk about is making it illegal for law-abiding citizens to have guns.
“Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock had lost a large portion of his wealth over the last two years thanks to mounting gambling losses and real estate deals, which the local sheriff speculates might have driven him to violence.
In an interview with local news station KLAS Wednesday night, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said that Paddock, a millionaire property investor with a passion for high-stakes gambling on video poker machines, hit a rough patch in his finances beginning in September 2015.
‘I think that might have a determining factor on what he determined to do,’ Lombardo said. ...”
“Lombardo also said that because of his flagging fortunes, the retired accountant who reportedly gambled $1million a year was concerned about his standing at casinos and with his friends and family.
‘Obviously, that was starting to decline in a short period of time, and that may have a determining effect on why he decided to do what he did,’ Lombardo said. ...”
You do realize that the two stories you’ve linked here are essentially reprints of the CNN story I linked to in my piece, right? That’s not “reporting”. That is parroting.
All I know is that someone shot up a lot of people in Vegas.
Other that that I wouldn’t trust anything their police or especially the FBI might say.
Its Las Vegas. They have billions on the line and the City will do anything to keep the story buried.
Its about selling Vegas. They dont dont want to scare people from coming. The cover up is the Las Vegas tourism board.
People come to Vegas to escape not to be killed.
Sorry, once I read the craziness about possible CIA involvement I stopped reading.
They tried to make Campos the hero but he likely was the cause of the shooting. Can’t have an illegal be the cause of startling Paddock in the middle of his preps for whatever the real target was.
Wonder what perks they gave Campos to get him to come back to the US and go on the Ellen Show?
NV Dist. 1 State Representative, Dina Tutus, gave an interview the next day that she’d spoken with Mandalay and he was “winning at the tables” and housekeeping hadn’t noticed anything unusual in his room. She hasn’t said one word about him since.
