16 Unanswered Questions About The Las Vegas Shooting That Mainstream Media Doesn't Want To Talk About

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

The public is not being told the truth about what really went down in Las Vegas. 

As you will see below, the evidence is mounting that there were multiple shooters and that this was an operation that was planned well in advance.  But according to the mainstream media, a 64-year-old retired accountant with a flabby physique that had no military training whatsoever and that wasn’t very experienced with guns was able to pull the whole thing off all by himself.  We are being told that Paddock was a “lone wolf” that didn’t have any ties to terror groups, and since he is now dead nobody is ever going to be able to interrogate him. 

But the American people definitely deserve some answers about what took place, and that means that all of us should keep digging.

The following are 16 unanswered questions about the Las Vegas shooting that the mainstream media does not want to talk about…

#1 Photos of Stephen Paddock’s hotel room have been leaked, and one of those photos appears to show a suicide note. Why hasn’t the public been told what is in that note?

#2 Were there additional shooters?  A taxi driver reportedly captured video of an automatic weapon being fired out of a lower level window.  A video from another angle and brief footage captured by Dan Bilzerian also seem to confirm that automatic gunfire was coming from a floor much lower than the 32nd floor room that Stephen Paddock was located on.  And if you weren’t convinced by the first three videos, this fourth video should definitely do it.

#3 Why were law enforcement authorities discussing “another suspect on the fourth floor”, and why isn’t the mainstream media talking about this?

#4 As Jon Rappoport has pointed out, it would have been impossible for Stephen Paddock to kill and wound 573 people in less than five minutes of shooting with the kinds of weapons that he is alleged to have used.  So why won’t law enforcement authorities acknowledge this fact?

#5 How in the world did Paddock get 42 guns and “several thousand rounds of ammo” into his hotel room without anyone noticing?

#6 How did someone with “no military background” and that wasn’t a “gun guy at all” operate such advanced weapons?  Because what we are being told by the mainstream media just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.  I really like how Natural News made this point…

Far from what the firearms-illiterate media claims, these are not systems that any Joe off the street can just pick up and use to effortlessly mow down 500 people. Running these systems requires extensive training, experience and stamina. It is physically impossible for a guy like Stephen Paddock to operate such a system in the sustained, effective manner that we witnessed, especially when shooting from an elevated position which throws off all the ranging of the weapon system.


Far from being a Navy Seal, Stephen Paddock is a retired accountant senior citizen with a gambling problem and a flabby physique. The only way he could have carried out this shooting is if he were transformed into a human superweapon through a magic wand. I’m calling this “Mission IMPOSSIBLE” because of the physical impossibility of a retired, untrained senior citizen pulling this off.

#7 Why was one woman telling people in the crowd that they were all going to die 45 minutes before the attack?

#8 Why did it take law enforcement authorities 72 minutes to get into Stephen Paddock’s hotel room?

#9 Why did Paddock wire $100,000 to the Philippines last week?

#10 Why was Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, in the Philippines when the attack took place?  Did she know what was about to happen?

#11 Was Paddock on antidepressants like so many other mass killers in the past have been?

#12 Why was ISIS so eager to take responsibility for this attack, and why was the FBI so quick to dismiss that connection?

#13 Apparently Paddock had earned millions of dollars “through real estate deals”.  If he was so wealthy, why would he all of a sudden snap like that?

#14 Why did he move so frequently?  It is being reported that Paddock had 27 different residences during his adult life.

#15 Why were nearly all of the exits out of the concert venue completely blocked?…

In essence, the concert trapped the people, preventing them from escaping, and denying them the ability to seek cover. From there, sustained, full-auto gunfire is almost impossible to survive.


From Fox News, a caller named Russell Bleck, who survived the shooting, said live on air, “There were ten-foot walls blocking us in. We couldn’t escape. It was just a massacre. We had nowhere to go.”

#16 Why was a country music festival chosen as the target?  Was the goal to kill as many Trump supporters and other conservatives as possible?  And is there evidence that Stephen Paddock was connected to Antifa in any way?

At first I thought that this was a fairly straightforward story too, but the more I have dug into it the more complex things have become.

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that Stephen Paddock definitely did not act alone.  That means that the others involved in the shooting are still out there, and they must be brought to justice.  Let us never forget what these extremely wicked individuals did to innocent civilians such as 27-year-old Tina Frost

A 27-year-old woman has lost her right eye after a bullet ripped through her face during the Las Vegas concert massacre.


Tina Frost remains in a coma in hospital after undergoing surgery to remove the bullet that became lodged in her eye when a gunman opened fire on the crowd of country music fans on Sunday night.


Frost, who is originally from Maryland but moved to California several years ago, is expected to remain in the coma for a week.

Whoever did this is going to pay greatly.  Yes, I do believe that Stephen Paddock was involved.  But he did not act alone, and the mainstream media is doing the public a great disservice by ignoring all of the evidence that this was not just a “lone wolf” operation.

Because it's very likely a suppresed automatic rifle. You're hearing sounds from another gun at the same time. 

junction's picture

The Las Vegas NWO murder conspiracy will be another test of how effective news censorship is in the United States.  Paddock is supposed to be another lone gunman yet Paddock rented out two adjoining rooms on the 32nd floor and set up two separate gun shooting stations and Paddock had two cars in the Mandalay Bay casino parking lot.  Plus there is that indistinct video showing continuous muzzle flashes from about the 5th floor of the casino tower. 

The Las Vegas Police Department claims that Paddock fired through his door when they were outside, wounding a security guard in the leg, before Paddock committed suicide.  Yeah, using a long automatic rifle placed against his head (refer to the murder of Marine Colonel Sabow: http://www.militarycorruption.com/sabow-3.htm)  The newspaper stories showing the inventory of weapons in Paddock’s room shows he had 17 rifles in his room but no listing of any handguns he had. Nor has anyone stepped forward yet to claim they saw Paddock at a shooting range practicing with an automatic rifle.  Nor has the LVPD indicated how many shell casings their crime scene investigators found in the hotel rooms. 

There is something else that to me is incongruous about the profile of Paddock.  He is alleged to be a high stakes gambler who plays video poker slot machines.  High stakes gamblers play table games.  Go to a casino and see who plays video poker games.  Almost no one and usually the players are women.  Paddock is an accountant and he plays video poker slots, slots with crummy payouts when you do win. Paddock was no high stakes gambler, that claim was just to explain the over $10,000 cash payments he reported to the government.  He really was a “nickel and dime” type gambler, a cog in the conspiracy to murder all those country music fans attending the Route 91 Harvest concert.  The Satanist responsible for this killing event must have had a laugh; they were going to harvest a lot of people for Satan.  When Paddock was no longer useful, he was shot dead and his killer left the hotel room wearing his Las Vegas Police Department uniform, which he wears for his day job, as a LVPD cop. 

And the news reporters write on, avoiding any news that implicates the real killers who murdered a lot of fine Americans, who happened to be country music fans.

Look at the Paris concert attacks from 2 years ago. THREE highly trained terrorist with preplanted explosives and shooting people in close quarters moving among the crowd had 200 fewer victims.   There is no chance in hell this was anything but a gov't false flag event.

TBT or not TBT's picture

22,000 people massed together at 400m or something like that.  No marksmanship required.  He could keep the sights on the most sense areas of people while letting fly.    The only thing hard about that is the horror.   The physical and technical aspects not so much.    If anything it looks like he overthought it and brought way too many guns.   Just a few quality rifles to rotate through to keep ahead of the heat issue, and lots of good magazines with high quality ammo already loaded into them.

can serial numbers on all 17 rifle 'evidence' be provided to public? these numbers could easily be traced to who and where purchased. only evidence that has been provided is he bought one rifle and one shotgun (usless for this scenario) at a local gunshop. interestingly, he did work for an evil three letter acronym alphabet agency... IRS. i called it before that info became public. his girlfriend tied in with .gov as well. bribes, payoffs, extortions, disappearances and agendas, courtesy of crown corporation stranglehold on americans. brits want divorce from EU after advocating and encouraging its marriage. it is high time we divorce ourselves from crown corporation. with amerexit. whats good for goose is good for gander.

TBT or not TBT's picture

The serial numbers can only be traced by BATF at law enforcement request.   That's by design.   There in principal and by law is no database to look them up in.   Each serial has to be traced manually through paper records of each FFL who has transferred them, from maker to distributor to FFL through the paper trail to last (recorded) purchaser.

Guns & dead people, the only info released.

The guy had multiple cameras. $100k sent to Philippines. Cops have loads of info, yet only one tiny bit was released: guns and dead people.

False narrative

Took the FBI 12 seconds to say not terror attack.

Go to a casino and see who plays video poker games. Almost no one and usually the players are women."

This is patently false. There are many high stakes gamblers who play video poker because the games can be beaten for those who know how to make the right plays on every hand. There are teams of individual investors who pool their resources and then form companies that pay others (very well, I might add) to flood casino video poker machines when the pooled royal flush jackpot on certain banks of machines reach a certain level; those players then play for the investment company until the jackpot is won -- sometimes they play for days on end. I know all about the latter example because my parents were on the payroll for one of those investment companies for many years during their retirement years. By the way, they had to take and pass a monthly video poker test to make sure they knew how to make the right decisions on every hand. It was a timed test; 100 hands and they needed to score 98% or better to maintain employment.

Interesting. I live near some casinos, am pretty intelligent, and good at spotting patterns. I need to look into this....

Not My Real Name's picture

You should, Carl. If you're retired, it's a great way to make excellent side cash. It's hard mentally-draining work though. Sometimes they were there for multiple days since, once they committed to a bank of poker machines, they played until the royal flush jackpot was won. The players received $15 per hour, then 1.5 times regular pay between 8 and 12 hours, double time for hours 13 to 18 and triple time for all hours after that. Food was paid for, hotel room was paid for stays over 24 hours, plus mileage to and from the casinos. They also got a (relatively small) piece of the action if they were on the machine that won the jackpot -- usually an extra $1000 or so. My parents' investment team company only targeted Indian reservation casinos -- not sure why.

Don't be ridiculous.

If he was harvesting souls for Satan, he would be shooting up heavy metal concerts filled with lefties.

Everyone knows real conservatives go to Heaven. RINO's are the same as lefties, Satan bait.

Jesus told me this in a dream.

Kanjiklub's picture

I agree, and have been posting this video as well, everyone should stop focusing on the shooter, who we all know is part of something much bigger, and instead focus on who has the most to gain from this act. It is the best interpretation I have come across.

Praetorian Guard's picture

I'm seeing some things were Paddocks girlfriend may have had connections to Spooks back in the 1970's.


Is it possible Paddock was being used as a CHS by some US agency, in a gun for sale sting? Bad guys find out, pop him in the head, finish the deal to frame, and escape before LE shows up? Maybe dressed as Bellboys or Staff?

Cool! It turned blue. I hate it when I take pictures and video with my cell-phone and it changes the color of everything.

Ex-Oligarch's picture

Serious question:  Is there a credible technical explanation for the color change?  Do the news cameras use a blue filter?

Mute Button's picture

Strobe light on the 4th floor? Right, right, right.

Paul Joseph Watson was pushing that and saying that the strobe light was right after the shooting...as if somebody's going up to their room and partying hardy after the all time great massacre in US history. All the while the hotel is on lock down...

No, BS!!  Three different videos with the muzzle flashes coming from a floor lower than the 32nd and the sound of fire accompanying it. 

So, BUSTED. Multiple shooters!!!  Nice try, NWO and NWO minions...

laser's picture

That was a neat trick. Shooting through unbroken glass on the fourth floor.

Quantum tunneling rounds you can buy over the counter from the same dealers that sell the silent "silencers" that zero both the report and the supersonic boom during bullet flight.

Pointing out the obvious: there are multiple plausible sources of a blinking light (that just so happens to have kept blinking indefinitely after the shooting was over).

Yippie21's picture

dude, where are the busted out windows lower down?  There are likely multiple shooters, but why not just shoot all from 32?  Why go to all this trouble and plan and have your team split up?  They had a suite.. kill zone.. field of fire ..   4th floor shooters would have been found MUCH sooner, no?  Cops/ security don't have to go so high up to take that room out.  ...  and lastly... we'll never know.  Too much BS already by Government ... they are in major coverup / patsy mosde and Vegas owners will be putting extreme pressure on to obviscate and move on.  Sad.

Re: The fourth floor muzzle "flashes"

Don't you think this room has been closely inspected for any signs that a shooter(s) was opening fire from here? I would say that EVERY room in this hotel has been inspected/investigated but especially this particular room, the subject of so much Internet conjecture. 

If there is evidence a shooter was firing from here then the authorities must be covering this up. Why in the world would they do this? Why would they want a mass murderer to get  away with this crime?

MagicHandPuppet's picture

There could possibly have been multiple shooters I suppose, but I haven't found concrete evidence of such yet - and I never trust the official story. But, this particular 4th or 5th floor blinking light did not shoot any bullets.

Ex-Oligarch's picture

So, your reasoning is that:
(1) based on what law enforcement and/or the casino have told us, ...
(2) there is no possible reason that law enforcement and/or the casino would lie, ...
(3) therefore, law enforcement and the casino must be telling the truth.

I think there might be a problem with your logic.

Give Me Some Truth's picture

Re: Logic

Your "logic" is that the police either A) Made no effort to apprehend a second shooter (chose to let him get away) and/or B) Chose to lie and cover-up the existence of this second shooter.

Question: Why would police risk their careers and reputations and possible prosecution to allow a mass murderer to walk? This is logical to you?

Ex-Oligarch's picture

Your faith in the transparency, competence, and honesty of law enforcement is touching, but misplaced.

Rather than defend your argument, you seem to be intent on mischaracterizing mine.

You are still proceeding from bogus assumptions.  Have you considered any of the many possibliities besides (A) and (B)? 

Obtaining accurate information during a shooting and its immediate aftermath is difficult.

Official reticence and restriction of information in the hours and days after a crime, particularly a high profile crime, is not unusual.

Failure by police to apprehend suspects during moments of chaos is not unusual, and results in exceedingly bad publicity, and puts at risk "their careers and reputation." 

Delaying the release of information about such failures to avoid those consequences is commonplace. 

Providing incorrect or misleading reports to the public that must later be corrected is common, whether the innacuracies are intentended or not.

For example, early reports claimed that police had located Mr. Paddock quickly, broke in to his room and stopped his attack.  Now it seems that it may have taken police over an hour after the beginning of the attack to reach and enter his hotel room, where he had already broken off the attack and committed suicide.  This account may well change again. 

Inconsistencies like that make people skeptical, and there is nothing wrong with asking questions to try to ascertain the truth, especially when public officials are not forthcoming. 

And given the not infrequent misrepresentations and misconduct by law enforcement and our intelligence agencies, as well as the immediate politicization of this crime, people have some justification for considering more sinister possibilites beyond your (A) and (B), or those I suggest.

If you count the ground floor as the first floor (as you should) "Paddock" was on the 33rd floor. The festival was called 91 road "harvest" festival by "sirius". The shooting happened 133 days after the Ariana Grande Manchester false flag. Oct 1st is 91 days before end of year. The two broken windows are 9-11 apart (counting and not counting the broken windows). The shooter fired for "9 to 11" minutes according to media. The whole thing happened at the foot of a pyramid, with its top alight, facing an obelisk. It happened during a kabbalistic holiday known for its mandated blood sacrifices.

What else does one need?? So many hermetic numbers and symbols. Just like 911 and most attacks after it. This was not only a false flag, it was an occult sacrifice.

The audio alone from this 18 minute cabbie video proves multiple shooters. This is now fact no matter how hard they try to cover this up.

Gee, where have I seen this DNA spiral pattern before?  Maybe in the hotel room?

I don't know why nobody has pointed this out...

When you try to take an image with a digital SLR and it is too dark for the pixel screen to see what you are trying to focus on, THe CAMERA WILL REPEATEDLY STROBE TO FIND A FOCUS POINT! That was exactly what I saw in the cabbies vid. It did NOT syncronize with the weapon report.

"They" Checked into room 32135 on September 25th. Not the 28th.

There are room service receipts for a number of days showing that 3 people were in the room.

Hotel employees were trying to warn the crowd at the concert to get out of the area.

There is a lot of lying going on in connection with this "event"

Yog Soggoth's picture

So you can confirm, with proof., when this/ your footage was taken?  It does not add up, because the other live 4 videos show it stopping and starting just behind the sound. By your statement you also insinuate that you were there with a stopwatch exactly when Paddock died and must have helped with the picture, unless you were being useless on purpose at the moment. Bottom line, you have no more proof than the bum drinking his nattly light in the back alley. There is no strobe light or "whatever" in a criminal investigation, and you are definitely suspect.

Nameshavebeenchangedtoprotecttheinnocent's picture

Except that it absolutely was muzzle flash and not a strobe & was probably a suppressed weapon. That would allow them to fire and blame it on a different location. That's why part of it is out of sync with some of the shots. There were multiple locations that the shooting was taking place from; not just the Mandalay Bay. On the videos of the strobe, there were multiple weapons being fired, some much closer to the camera location. Tha camera will pick up the closer one and not the suppressed one further away. Either that or the perps were pumping it thru the sound as many witnesses said. That also explains why part of it is slightly out of sync.

Listen to the full video taken by the lady taxi driver. Very cleary at least 2 very separate locations for the shooters. It's not even an arguable issue. Also, the 911 scanner tapes clearly show the cops knew of a shooter on the 4th floor.

No reason for a strobe light to be in a hotel room on the 4th floor. It's a gun, being fired. 

I'd recommend not commenting when you don't have an understanding of what is really going on here.

I was hoping to read something intelligent in the article, but instead got a lot of stupid stuff. #5: There were not 42 guns in the hotel room, he had a total of 42 guns including those found in at least 2 houses.  Some questions, such as "was he on antidepressants?" have already been answered.
