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.

Theres going to be more of this sort of thing until the masses demand the body scanners themselves. We arent at peak-subjugation yet so avoid crowded places for another 6 months.

Bingo-rama -- bang on. This is exactly how police states are formed. The sheeple (including many of those posting on here) will clamor for more "security" and demand strict gun control. There'll be high-profile celebrity hand-ins of guns and Facebook challenges to do the same. 

I weep for what is coming to America, for what is already here.

False Flag™ brought to you by the usual cui bono suspects who've brought you all the other False Flags™.

A moneychanger is a moneychanger is a moneychanger.

RIP, Steven Paddock.

A man just kills 59 people and wounds many more and your request is that he "rest in peace?" (And you get nine positive votes vs. one down vote. Good God.)

Spend some time with the families of his victims over the next days, weeks, years and decades.

GoingBig's picture

the sad fact is the number of people on this site that believe this utter horseshit they are speaking about. There is absolutely no logic to their statements. And why have logic when you can just make shit up?

1) its a false flag? Why?

2) there was  2nd shooter. What? who wouldn't notice on that floor. They aren't suites at that level. Why wouldn't the police want to find the 2nd killer.

3) the fucking list goes on and on.

Hey, if you people actually believe this conspiracy narrative, you really are out there.

While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.  --  1 Thess 5:3


There is more truth in this one verse than in all the media lies. It rings true every time.

What does "peace" look like? Who enforces it? Who is safe from whom?

A man can be put into a solitary cell and have acquired a position of "safety". One can visit violence upon individuals at will, until they submit to "peace".

Germany didn't evolve into a "dictatorship", it was already trashed and undermined by the (((ethno-clique))) who attempt to ruin all nations they infest, so the people had enough. 36% of votes was significant in the German elections, as in many European elections and the growth and social, scientific, technological and industrial advancement over the next decade was stunning, with the (((ethno-clique))) parasites neutralized. It was especially stunning given the rest of the West was in the grips of the same tribal (((ethno-clique))) bankers, remained mired in a deep depression, and were pushing for a war with Germany. Most people are now aware that gun laws were actually loosened under the NS, having been restricted under the (((ethno-clique))) Weimar government disaster.

Some thread on 4chan purports to show there was a warning given tbere around Sept10 to stay away from big outdoor gatherings and if they saw three black vans together to get the hell out. Said it was an operation designed, kind of like 9/11, to basically increase fear to get The politicians to demand metal detectors and screaming machines in all venues. This is what would be called in economic corporate false flag. Kind of like our boy Chertoff and his Rapiscan roll out

Somebody with some knowledge of forensics needs to analyize that suicide photo. You can see it in the ZH post about him leaving a suicide note. The blood marks on his face are ONLY going in the direction of his forehead or basically downhill from where he is lying. Doesn't that seem odd? The pool of blood indicates that he never was anywhere other than lying where they found him. Does a guy commit suicide lying down? His arms seem (can't see in the photo) to be by his side, I wonder where the gun is and how the arms are positioned? Maybe this is normal, just seems like there would be blood sprayed around the room and his clothes, etc., even if he was sitting and fell back.

His body is straight like an arrow, if you shoot your self in the head you don't fall down like a tree you sag down

spanish inquisition's picture

He was face down (edit: more on the left side of his face) and rolled over. There appear to be 2 sets of blood drainage. That would account for the way its patterned on his face. (edit: the second trail is from the exit wound after he was on his back).

Edit: If you look close you can see where his face made an imprint before being rolled on his back.

spanish inquisition's picture

There is a gun is above his head and looks like it was slid out of the way by the blood trail.

TheReplacement's picture

That is secondary.  Determine the first people shot and look at the trajectory of the entry wounds.  That should be pretty definitive in determining the source location.

Blackfox's picture

Hahaha at the fools with the second ground floor window shooter - what did he do smash the window - fire - then replace the glass? There are many many vidoes online of people saying the noise of the shots come from the Stage Audio. Funny how those videos got deleted of YouTuber and the Taxi one left up.....

The guy in T-shirt doesn't look like he was shooting a lot.

Anybody who have been involved in military knows how we look like after heavy fight.

He must have a really swollen shoulder and covered by black residue like a coal miner.

By the time .gov gets done, I'm sure they'll supercede the Patriot Act with some other tyrannical police state law.

It'll all be in the name of keeping everyone safe.

I envision there being TSA checkpoints throughout cities sometime in the near future. And the public will be thankful for their new prison.

news reports the next day show a strobe on the 4th floor where the cab driver saw it and thought it was muzzle flash

here's a couple more details and questions

he actually was in the hotel 2 days before the cops say he was.... 

he had room service for two... who???

why two windows knocked out... to move between them?... why ...actually two seperate rooms with a connceting door

but he had flash suppressors and was not that easy to spot...

the sound of the volleys varies but experts have said it sounds like a SAW or M240 belt fed due to the variance in the cadence at times and the number of rounds.... dont see any of thoses 200 round mags in pics... at times it sounds like two weapons firing

two shooters one with the belt fed fully auto and another using the bump stocks which can pour out the rounds but not with accuracy

paddock (although some leaked police reports say he fired through the door at the cops ...but the door looks intact)..

if height was an advantage why not use the roof... did they look for evidence there..???

CNN posted a story about the shooting a whole day before it happened

Yes indeed doesn't add up. My two big questions/concerns --- 1st, no "intelligent" person or even stupid person takes 30 or 40 or however many crazy #'s of guns the media is reporting to an assault position -- maybe 3 or 4 guns and 10 cases of ammo but that many guns is just absolutely ridiculous.

2nd, What no one is talking about is that the largest pro-gun legislation in the past 20 years -- the hearing protection act -- was coming up for a vote in the house. Ryan has now said this is now cancelled. The timing is most concerning/suspect. There was a lot of very pro gun things in this bill that many anti-gunners were against. It was looking like it would pass easily until Vegas.

CAMERAS all over the place and this goes unnoticed? If only the MEDIA would reveal all of the facts then we could get to the truth!

   With some the blames is always the guns.........never the meds.

  Some believe all drugs are safe...and you can never take too many drugs.   

  Just ask the psychs......Its the person, not the drugs.   Sure.

Where's the CCTV footage of Mandalay Bay? There's cameras on every floor

whatsupdoc's picture

Why is there no CCTV footage of hotel lobbys and corridors for the 12 hours prior to the shooting ?  Did all the CCTV cameras fail to show this ?  Nothing at all from the CCTV cameras around the hotel either ??

The USA is so screwed up.

Here is an interesting comparison of how much money is spent in Washington by gun rights and gun control groups:




It's pretty clear from looking at both the campaign contributions and the amount spent by lobbyists which side of the gun debate has the most sway in Washington.

#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?

This is really a stupid question. also there is no evidence he had any connection to antifa. nor is anything in his life the lifestyle of a leftist. no another conservartive nut with guns

She made it up to the corrupt, parasitic 1%, once you reached that status paired with child abuse on camera you are part of the club and untouchable. Trump is a minion of the Clintons.

#4 is at variance with #8, I am led to believe he fired for five minutes, then stopped and waited for sixty seven minutes until the cops busted down his door? 

As an aside, why is that the very people who just proved  to the world they cannot protect everyone all the time are the very same ones screaming the only way to protect you is for you to disarm yourself?  ;-)

Paddock was a registered Democrat.

If I may be so crude as to paste from an American Thinker article:


"Once again, Democrats are screaming that the ones who must pay the price for a lunatic’s evil are those who had nothing to do with that evil. Knowing that almost all the guns in this country are owned by their political opposition, they see every mass shooting as an opportunity, a gift, if you will, by which they can achieve something truly immoral and unjust: the forcible eradication of the right of self-defense against enemies, foreign and domestic, though mostly domestic. They still haven’t forgotten that they will never fully overthrow this country if its citizens are armed and can resist totalitarian fascism, which is always preceded by disarmament of the populace. Disarmament is a unique trait of the political left."

Paddock was a registered Democrat.

To have a crime, you must first have a progressive.

Since the Democrats and dem lefties have been committing 99.9% of the violence, I have to put my money on he is a radical democrat who hates America just like most of the other democrats.


Look how much hatred we've seen from Obama, his pet wookie, Hillary, antifa, Al Green, maxine and hundreds more.


All violent Marxists either in action or speech.

People are digging and it is starting to look like he was a "never-Trumper" at least. 

And I can definitely see one of these progressive psycho's killing off a bunch of "Trump voters" (remember, it was a country music venue) with semi-autos to further the gun control "cause". 

I mean after all, progs are fucking nutz.

nmewn, why do you question the official story here yet support the absurd, official tales of 911?

Now that's something that doesn't add up.

It should not matter or be linked. He resides at that address and is registered. That is ALL the voter records need to know.
