What Happens in Vegas Doesn’t Stay in Reno

As readers know, I have a low regard for conspiracy theories, mainly because the reasons the world is going to hell are pretty much staring us in the face. But I can’t honestly blame anyone following the Las Vegas massacre story from taking refuge in any conspiracy theory, no matter how wild and zany. Almost a fortnight from the moment when 58 people were gunned down at a country-music festival, officialdom has so bungled the case that almost every single one of the most basic facts about the act are up for grabs.

Stage fright? Las Vegas security guard Jesus Campos disappears moments before TV interviews

    There’s been some industrial grade bullshit being presented to the public over this event, and I believe that the players are just realizing that the story is getting away from them due to the Internet.

    One thing Coulter did zero in on that was PATENTLY false is that anybody other than a Casino makes money from gambling, especially by playing video poker.
    They guy was laundering money for somebody.
    Then one of his houses was broken into because it was left unguarded.
    How could that have happened?
    Why the coverup for some low-level money launderer that went berserk, assuming that’s all it was?

    • It’s all too tainted.

      Supposedly over 200 FBI agents are investigating the Las Vegas massacre and they couldn’t spare one or two to guard Paddock’s house that was previously designated a “crime scene”?

      He was red flagged by FinCent 200 times in the last 2 years for suspected transactions that they suspected were liked to proceeds of crime or terrorism.

      (FinCent is the US version of FinTrac here in Canada)

    Robert Downey Jr.: Las Vegas Shooting Was an ‘Illuminati Blood Sacrifice’

    ” “I’ve been to that hotel [Mandalay Bay], they have special weapons
    detectors installed and there is no way they would have allowed weapons
    in unless they were cooperating with either a federal law enforcement
    team or, you know, a fake law enforcement team.”

    “You know there was a FEMA drill taking place in Las Vegas that day?
    “There was a FEMA drill and then suddenly it went live. Took all the
    actors by surprise. Suddenly it’s real bullets.”We’ve seen this happen
    so many times before.”

    One way or the other it’s important that the Truth be told, wholly and unadulterated. If they leave it at ‘*shrug* meh’ then some other fool with bad intentions will feel inclined to get their pound of flesh knowing the system is either to incompetent or to politically/ideological entrenched to expose them.

      He sure is camera shy all of a sudden.
      There might be a problem with his story.
      He may know that he’s been falsely elevated to a hero, or be covering for a past?
      I’m beginning to become quite suspicious of a lot involved in this story and that’s a shame.
      I wished I had more confidence in my government and the press.

      • Jabberwokk

        I just want the Truth no matter how terrible, unbelievable or horrifying it turns out to be.

    Neither Paddock or his girlfriend was ever seen to take a drink? Recovering alcoholics, perhaps, or … ideologically disinclined to do so? Interesting little tidbit.

      Then what was he doing with 50-year-old, $500 a glass port wines as his brother claimed?
      More bullshit?
      I’m finding that brother a bit hard to take.
      He seems like a goof.

      • He is.

      • Exile1981

        Look at who the brother works for. Plus the brother has claimed once he hadn’t talked to him in 6 months and in another interview 20 years. So which is it?

    I got taken in by a hoax article, claiming that Compos had been arrested as a second shooter. This one looked for all the world like a legit CNN story.

    To the extent you can have a legit CNN story.

    • Drunk by Noon ✓

      That same story was all over Twitter.
      If you look at the Whois lookup, you will see that fake CNN site (CNN-International) just went up the day before under an individual persons name.

    This is all the fault of Stephen Harper!

    Since we’re talking conspiracy stories, here’s mine. Paddock was set up to host a gun sale and his customer(s) decided they needed a live fire demonstration. All of the confusion is a deliberate result of trying to cover up an even larger investigation because the feds know who was behind it.
