1. TRUCK BOMBING IN MOGADISHU, SOMALIA, KILLS 240, INJURES AT LEAST 300, SERIOUSLY DAMAGES QATAR'S EMBASSY THERE.
FROM THE GUARDIAN, U.K., 15 OCTOBER 2017


At least 500 people are believed to have been killed or seriously injured in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, in one of the most lethal terrorist acts anywhere in the world for many years.

The death toll from Saturday’s attack, which involved a truck packed with several hundred kilograms of military-grade and homemade explosives, stood at 239 on Sunday but is expected to rise as more bodies are dug from the rubble spread over an area hundreds of metres wide in the centre of the city. At least 300 people were injured, according to local reports.

Rescue workers on the ground said it would be difficult to establish a definitive death toll because the intense heat generated by the blast meant the remains of many people would never be found.

The bomb, which is thought to have targeted Somalia’s foreign ministry, was concealed in a truck and exploded near a hotel on a busy street, demolishing the building and several others.  

2. CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES STILL BURNING, MORE THAN 300 PEOPLE MISSING, 40 KNOWN DEAD, ALMOST 6,000 HOMES AND BUSINESSES DESTROYED.



The death toll stands at 40 today. Some 300 people remained unaccounted for, though officials thought they would locate most alive. Most of the deceased were believed to have died late on 8 October or early on 9 October, when the fires exploded in the dead of night. Most victims were elderly, though they ranged in age from 14 to 100.  

At least 5,700 homes and businesses had been destroyed, making the fires the deadliest and most destructive in state history. 

“It’s a horror that no one could have imagined,” Governor Jerry Brown said

Seventeen large fires still burned across the northern part of the state, with more than 10,000 firefighters attacking the flames using air tankers, helicopters and more than 1,000 fire engines.

3. KURDS BLOCK IRAQI ACCESS TO KIRKUK OIL FIELDS AS IRAN CLOSES BORDER WITH IRAQ.
TURKEY WILL SIDE WITH IRAQ.
U.S. IGNORES PLIGHT OF KURDS, AS USUSAL, AND ALSO TAKES SIDES WITH IRAQ.
FROM REUTERS, 13 OCTOBER 2017


The Baghdad central government has taken a series of steps to isolate the autonomous Kurdish region since its vote for independence, including banning international flights.
Iran meanwhile shut its border crossings with Iraq’s Kurdistan in support of measures taken by the Iraqi government to isolate the Kurdish region, the Iraqi foreign ministry said.
The Iraqi government in a statement accused the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) of bringing fighters from Turkey’s separatist Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) to Kirkuk, describing the move as a “declaration of war”.
The city of Kirkuk, the airbase and their immediate surroundings, including the oilfields, are under Kurdish control.
Kurdish authorities said on Friday they had sent thousands more troops to Kirkuk to confront Iraqi “threats.” Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has repeatedly denied any plans to attack the Kurds.
The United States has taken the side of the Iraqi government in refusing to recognize the validity of the referendum.

4. BITCOIN 'STAMPEDES' TO RECORD $5,846, MAY RISE PAST $6,000.
SEEMS MANY LEADING NATIONS HAVE TRIED TO STOP THE POPULARITY OF BITCOIN AND CAN'T QUITE DO IT, SO THIS SHOULD BE GOOD NEWS FOR THOSE SEEKING AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE SHRINKING AMERICAN FIAT DOLLAR. 

The value of bitcoin surged to another record Friday, jumping as high as $5,846. The cryptocurrency is cementing its position at the top of the heap as it stampedes toward the $6,000 milestone.

MEANWHILE, U.S.Treasury yields were lower on Friday after muted underlying U.S. inflation data offset higher gasoline prices and strong retail sales while the U.S. dollar regained ground but was set for its worst week in five.
U.S. consumer prices recorded their biggest increase in eight months in September as gasoline prices soared in the wake of hurricane-related refinery disruptions, but underlying inflation remained muted.

European shares rose to their highest in nearly four months, helped by corporate earnings updates.


THIS BLOG ENTRY WILL BEGIN SOMETHING I HAVE WANTED TO DO FOR YEARS, HIGHLIGHT WHAT SEEMS TO BE THE TOP 3 IMPORTANT WORLD NEWS STORIES (IN MY OPINION ONLY) AND ONE FINANCIAL HEADLINE THAT AFFECTS WORLD COMMERCE.

I WILL ATTEMPT TO NOT COMMENT OVER-MUCH AND JUST CALL ATTENTION TO THINGS WE NEED TO KNOW, WHICH OFTEN MAY BE THINGS THE CURSED
PROPAGANDIZED AMERICAN MAINSTREAM MEDIA WON'T REPORT.

I'M NOT SURE IF THIS WILL SERVE A TRUE PURPOSE AND MAY NOT KEEP IT, BUT IT DAWNED ON ME LONG AGO THAT MY FELLOW AMERICANS SIMPLY DON'T SEARCH THE NEWS STORIES BEYOND WHAT THEY FIND 'ATTRACTIVE' OR IN-LINE WITH WHAT THEY WANT TO READ, SO...WELL, WE'LL SEE.

THE DAY AMERICA IS ATTACKED BY E.M.P.


Comprehensive threat assessment and scenario planning for EMP attacks remain underdeveloped. This inaction is in the face of warnings, such as the one in the 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) which stated clearly that the "expanded reli­ance on sophisticated electronic technologies by the United States, its allies and partners increases their vulnerability to the destructive effects of electro­magnetic pulse (EMP)."

Yet, the Department of Defense has not implemented the QDR's proposed EMP Action Plan.
Even the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP), the plan dedicated to ensuring that U.S. critical infrastructure is protected from terrorist attack, does not directly address the EMP threat.

The U.S. MUST incorporate EMP Attacks into national plan­ning scenarios, develop a national recovery plan, and harden the grid NOW.
 



[Note the source of the above image: "testimony before the House National Security Committee".
This is NOT science fiction.]


ATTACK BY ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE...E.M.P.  

Americans remain gravely ill prepared for an EMP attack. In fact, the average U.S. city has only three days worth of food and health care provi­sions.
Most Americans do not have enough bat­teries to keep flashlights working for any period of time, much less generator capabilities.
And many of the country's most vulnerable citizens rely on the electricity grid for medical equipment, such as dial­ysis machines.

Even standard medication will be difficult or impossible to come by if EMP disables pharmacies and transportation networks.

Food would rot, health care would be reduced to its most rudimen­tary level, communication abilities would be limited and there would eventually not be any transporta­tion from lack of fuel. Rule of law would become impossible to sustain; police departments would be overwhelmed.

There is a HUGE difference between power blackouts and the aftermath of an EMP attack.
We've seen the reults of long-term power outages after hurricanes and other natural disasters.

In an EMP attack, however, the damage to power lines, 'supervisory control and data acqui­sition' (SCADA) control systems (for utility systems infrastructure), and commercial computers would very likely be permanent due to fused power lines and lost data-which would require replacing the entire electric system in the affected area.

If a nuclear warhead is detonated by a satellite in orbit, there is a strong potential for substantial damage to U.S. and other satellites as well as any spacecraft in use at the time of the explosion.

The military applications of such satellites are critical for defense systems that rely on GPS guidance, such as ballistic missiles and many conventional military strike weapons. The adverse impact on U.S. space-based communications, early-warning assets, fire-control systems, overhead sen­sors and imagery, and geospatial intelligence would be substantial as well.

The U.S. cannot, MUST NOT continue to ignore the EMP threat.
While some progress has been made in hard­ening potential U.S. targets against attack, including critical military and government systems, the vast majority of electrical systems are unshielded and unprotected, especially in the civilian sector.
If properly shielded, electrical devices and systems can generally survive even the strongest EMPs

[NOTE: Much of the above text, from beneath the last image to here, comes from an article by Jena Baker McNeill, Policy Analyst for Home­land Security in the Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign Policy Studies.]


"A severe solar storm could knock the large sections of the electrical power grid out for years."

WITHOUT THE GRID THERE WILL BE NO WAY TO REFINE OIL, CREATE FUEL, NOR A WAY TO EASILY PUMP THE GAS/DIESEL ON-HAND, TO PUMP WATER TO HOMES, AND WITHOUT FUEL THERE WILL BE NO WAY TO TRANSPORT FOOD, MEDICAL SUPPLIES OR ANYTHING ELSE TO CONSUMERS.
REMEMBER, THERE WILL BE NO REFRIGERATION AVAILABLE THAT REQUIRES A POWER GRID.

THERE WILL BE NO RELIABLE COMMUNICATIONS DEVICES AVAILABLE TO 'AVERAGE CITIZENS' AFTER A TIME.
NO COMPUTERS, NO INTERNET, NO CELLPHONES. 

WE MAY LOSE COMMUNICATIONS SATELLITES IF WE COME UNDER HEAVY EMP ATTACK FROM ORBITING 'ENEMY' SATELLITES FITTED WITH EMP DEVICES.

WITHOUT THE GRID, THERE WILL EVENTUALLY BE NO WAY TO FLUSH A TOILET, PICK UP GARBAGE, PREPARE A MEAL THE 'USUAL WAY'.

PIPELINES WILL BE SHUT DOWN, PROPANE DELIVERIES WILL BE SEVERELY AFFECTED.
HOW LONG COAL AND SUCH FUELS WILL BE AVAILABLE DEPENDS ON HOW MANY WILL TURN TO THOSE RESOURCES.
SHOULD AN EMP ATTACK COME IN WINTER, MANY WILL REQUIRE SUCH PRODUCTS TO STAY WARM AND COOK MEALS.

SOLAR AND WIND ENERGY WILL BE SORELY TAXED TO PROVIDE NECESSARY REPLACEMENT FOR A GRID-DOWN SCENARIO TO THE MILLIONS WHO WILL DESPERATELY WANT IT.


IF THE EFFECTS LAST FOR MONTHS, THERE MAY COME A TIME WHEN THERE WILL SIMPLY BE NO WAY TO COOL NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS' REACTORS TO PREVENT EXPLOSIONS AND MELTDOWNS.

"
The emergency systems are only designed to run long enough to get the power plants back onto a functioning grid. Once the diesel fuel runs out ( no power grid = no oil refineries), the plants will one by one, self destruct."

IMAGINE HUNDREDS OF 'FUKUSHIMAS'. 

FOR ANY HOSPITAL THAT DEPENDS ON THE CURRENT ELECTRIC POWER GRID, OR WOULD DEPEND ON GAS OR DIESEL FUEL FOR GENERATORS, ONCE THE GRID IS GONE,  THERE WILL BE NO WAY TO PERFORM SURGERIES AND KEEP A PATIENT ON A RESUSCITATOR OR HEART-BYPASS MACHINE.
THOSE WHO NEED SUCH DEVICES TO LIVE WILL NOT LIVE UNLESS A HOSPITAL CAN UTILIZE SOLAR OR OTHER ALTERNATIVE ENERGY TO POWER  EVERYTHING.

The International Electrotechnical Commission defines three components associated with a nuclear electromagnetic pulse: E1, E2, and E3.

The E1 pulse is brief, intense, and very quick (traveling at over 90% of the speed of light), and can take out computers and telecommunications equipment owing to its ability to exceed voltage limitations.

The E2 element is intermediate in duration, lasting from a microsecond to a second after the initiation of the EMP, and is similar in its effects to lightning. As such, the grid is generally shielded against E2.

By contrast, the E3 pulse is much slower, a result of the nuclear explosion affecting the earth’s magnetic field, and is very similar to the effects of an intense solar storm.

The E3 effect of a nuclear blast or severe solar storm would be to create massive currents on power lines, which could then destroy electrical transformers and potentially impact power plants as well.


Older, vacuum tube (valve) based equipment is generally much less vulnerable to nuclear EMP than solid state equipment, which is much more susceptible to damage by large but brief voltage and current surges.

One curious facet of an EMP event is that we wouldn’t even feel it pass through our bodies.
The EMP would pass unnoticed through us, even as it fried the iPhones and Galaxies in our pockets, knocked out our telecommunications system, rendered our cars and computers without the ability to function, and took out our power grid.

We would have little idea of the long-term effects awaiting us because there would be no communication as in the past. No easy long distance mobility. Nothing that our highly evolved, sophisticated, and electronic society relies on would be available to all, or even to the majority of Americans.

"The Potential Consequences Are Almost Unimaginable", wrote Forbes back in 2014.


There’s an excerpted summary from the 2008 Report of 'the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse Attack' that would make great science fiction reading. 
Unfortunately, it’s not science fiction but scientific fact.


SEE, WE'VE KNOWN ALL THAT FOR YEARS, BEFORE THIS SUMMARY.
IT'S BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT IN EVERY MAINSTREAM MEDIA, IN BOLD HEADLINES, OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
BUT NOTHING OF ANY MAJOR CONSEQUENCE WHATSOEVER HAS BEEN DONE TO SAFEGUARD OUR GRID WHEN THIS HAPPENS...WHEN, NOT IF, WHEN.

AFTER SO MANY WARNINGS TO CONGRESS AND THE PRESS OVER A PERIOD OF DECADES NOW, STILL NOTHING IS BEING DONE TO ADEQUATELY PREPARE AMERICANS FOR SUCH A REAL, SUCH A STRONG POSSIBILITY AS SURVIVAL WITHOUT A POWER GRID FOR MONTHS TO YEARS.

THE ONLY REASON I DECIDED TO WRITE THIS BLOG ENTRY IS TO GET READERS TO THINK ABOUT THIS, TO ASK HOW WE WOULD ALL SURVIVE AND MAKE IT THROUGH SUCH AN EVENT.
WE NEED A WORKABLE PLAN AND WE NEED TO PREPARE NOW FOR WHAT IS SURE TO COME AT SOME POINT IN OUR LIVES AND IN THE LIVES OF OUR CHILDREN AND THEIR CHILDREN.

WE MUST BE AS PREPARED AS WE CAN POSSIBLY BE. WE ARE ON OUR OWN IN THIS, OBVIOUSLY.

WE'D BE FIGHTING ONE ANOTHER FOR REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT PARTS TO RESTART THE GRID. CHAOS WOULD ERUPT EVERYWHERE IFTHE GRID WAS DOWN. 
IT WOULD BE COMPLETE AND UTTER MADNESS AND OUR CONGRESS KNOWS THIS BUT DOES NOTHING, JUST NOTHING, YEAR AFTER YEAR.


What If the Biggest Solar Storm on Record Happened Today?
FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, DO READ THE ABOVE ARTICLE FROM NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.



AS ONE FAIRLY GOOD ARTICLE PUT IT BACK IN 2013:
OUR E.M.P. VULNERABILITY INVITES DISASTER

"According to a blue-ribbon commission empaneled by Congress in the last decade to evaluate this EMP threat, the effect of such an attack – perhaps delivered by a relatively short-range ballistic missile launched from a ship off a U.S. coast – would be “catastrophic.” That is because, at present, our grid has not been “hardened” to withstand such electromagnetic pulses.

As a result, the EMP Threat Commission found that our bulk power system and particularly its key components – notably, roughly 1,000 large and smaller transformers that are its backbone – would be damaged or destroyed. This would cause power outages that would be widespread, protracted and result in the rapid and enduring collapse of all other critical infrastructures (food, water, medical, telecommunications, transportation, finance, etc.)

The Commission’s chairman, Dr. William Graham, put a fine point on the magnitude of the catastrophe. He estimated that within a year of such a take-down of our grid, nine-out-of-ten Americans would be dead.

To make matters worse, as Michael Del Rosso, the former chairman of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Critical Infrastructure Protection Committee, added – even if no hostile power responds catastrophically to our vulnerability to EMP, a similar level of devastation can be caused by natural phenomena.
Specifically, intense solar flaring of the kind currently occurring could, according to an estimate by Lloyds of London, leave up to 40 million Americans without power for as long as two years.

That such a sun-induced occurrence will afflict our planet is not merely a hypothetical possibility. It is a matter of when, not if. In fact, the earth’s orbit recently missed by one week intersecting with the devastating geomagnetic disturbances caused by a powerful coronal mass ejection.

So great is our vulnerability and so high are the stakes if it is not promptly mitigated that an informal EMP Coalition has just been established to raise awareness and campaign for corrective action.

Its bipartisan honorary co-chairs are former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Director of Central Intelligence R. James Woolsey. And its partners include many of the most knowledgeable and effective experts, organizations and activists in this field including: EMPact America, the Electric Infrastructure Security Council, High Frontier and the Center for Security Policy."

FROM THE ONLINE MAGAZINE WEBSITE OF "THE CENTER FOR THE NATIONAL INTEREST"

JUNE 5, 2017
"An EMP attack does not require an accurate guidance system because the area of effect, having a radius of hundreds or thousands of kilometers, is so large. No reentry vehicle is needed because the warhead is detonated at high-altitude, above the atmosphere. Missile reliability matters little because only one missile has to work to make an EMP attack.

North Korea could make an EMP attack against the United States by launching a short-range missile off a freighter or submarine or by lofting a warhead to 30 kilometers burst height by balloon. While such lower-altitude EMP attacks would not cover the whole US mainland, as would an attack at higher-altitude (300 kilometers), even a balloon-lofted warhead detonated at 30 kilometers altitude could blackout the Eastern Grid that supports most of the population and generates 75 percent of US electricity.

Moreover, an EMP attack could be made by a North Korean satellite. The design of an EMP or even a super-EMP weapon could be relatively small and lightweight, resembling the US W-79 Enhanced Radiation Warhead nuclear artillery shell of the 1980s, designed in the 1950s. Such a device could fit inside North Korea’s Kwangmyongsong-3 (KMS-3) and Kwangmyongsong-4 (KMS-4) satellites that presently orbit the Earth. The south polar trajectory of KMS-3 and KMS-4 evades US Ballistic Missile Early Warning Radars and National Missile Defenses, resembling a Russian secret weapon developed during the Cold War, called the Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS) that would have used a nuclear-armed satellite to make a surprise EMP attack on the United States.

The high-altitude EMP (HEMP) threat of interest requires exo-atmospheric detonation, at 30 kilometers altitude or above, and produces EMP out to ranges of hundreds to thousands of miles.

Damage and upset to electronic systems will happen from E1 EMP field strengths far below Liu’s “15,000 volts/meter or higher.” A one meter wire connected to a semiconductor device, such as a mouse cord or interconnection cable, would place hundreds to thousands of volts on microelectronic devices out to ranges of hundreds of miles for low-yield devices. Based on our experience with many EMP tests, semiconductor junctions operate at a few volts, and will experience breakdown at a few volts over their operating point, allowing their power supply to destroy exposed junctions.

Digital electronics can be upset by extraneous pulses of a few volts. For unmanned control systems present within the electric power grid, long-haul communication repeater stations, and gas pipelines, an electronic upset is tantamount to permanent damage. Temporary upset of electronics can also have catastrophic consequences for military operations. No electronics should be considered invulnerable to EMP unless hardened or tested to certify survivability.

When assessing the potential vulnerability of US military forces and civilian critical infrastructures to EMP, it is necessary to be mindful of the complex interdependencies of these highly-networked systems, because EMP upset and damage of a very small fraction of the total system can cause total system failure.
Some highly-critical unprotected electronics have been upset or damaged in simulated EMP tests, not at “15,000 volts/meter or higher,” but at threat levels far below 1,000 volts/meter.

Real world failures of electric grids from various causes indicate that the Congressional EMP Commission, US Department of Defense, US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), US Department of Homeland Security, and US Defense Threat Reduction Agency are right that a nuclear EMP attack would have catastrophic consequences. Significant and highly-disruptive blackouts have been caused by single-point failures cascading into system-wide failures, originating from damage comprising far less than 1 percent of the total system.

In contrast to blackouts caused by single-point or small-scale failures, a nuclear EMP attack would inflict massive widespread damage to the electric grid, causing millions of failure points. With few exceptions, the US national electric grid is unhardened and untested against nuclear EMP attack. In the event of a nuclear EMP attack on the United States, a widespread protracted blackout is inevitable. This common sense assessment is also supported by the nation’s best computer modeling.

REMEMBER THESE?
-- The Great Northeast Blackout of 2003—that put 50 million people in the dark for a day, contributed to at least 11 deaths, and cost an estimated $6 billion—originated from a single failure point when a powerline contacted a tree branch, damaging less than 0.0000001 (0.00001%) of the total system.

-- The New York City Blackout of 1977, which resulted in the arrest of 4,500 looters and injury of 550 police officers, was caused by a lightning strike on a substation that tripped two circuit breakers.

-- India’s nationwide blackout of 2012—the largest blackout in history, effecting 670 million people, 9% of the world population—was caused by overload of a single high-voltage powerline.
   

NOW I DON'T CARE WHO WRITES SUCH AN ARTICLE, THE FACTS ARE IN IT, THE TRUTH IS THERE AND WE'D DO WELL TO LISTEN AND MAKE WHATEVER PLANS WE CAN MAKE FOR WHEN, NOT IF, BUT WHEN THIS HAPPENS.
IF WE FAIL TO DO SO, WE HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT OURSELVES WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE AND WE DON'T HAVE A CLUE HOW TO SURVIVE. 

EACH OF US MUST DECIDE WHAT WE'RE CAPABLE OF DOING IN RESPONSE TO SUCH AN EVENT, REALISTICALLY, AND SET ABOUT METHODICALLY, CALMLY TO INSURE OUR SURVIVAL.

I'VE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR YEARS HERE BECAUSE I AM 100% CONVINCED THAT WHETHER BY IRAN, WHO ABHORS US AND CALLS AMERICA "THE GREAT SATAN", OR BY CRAZY BOY KIM JONG UN, WHO WOULD BLAST US JUST FOR FUN, OR WHETHER BY THE SUN OR OTHER "SPACE WEATHER", WE WILL SEE THIS IN OUR LIFETIMES.

COUNT ON IT, PREPARE YOUR MINDS FOR IT, AND PLAN FOR WHATEVER YOUR FAMILY WILL REQUIRE TO SURVIVE IT. THEN HOPE THAT WE WHO ARE SAYING SUCH THINGS ARE WRONG.

"BE PREPARED"...FOR ANYTHING...FOR EVERYTHING.
ONLY A FOOL WOULDN'T DO ALL HE COULD TO LIVE THROUGH A DISASTER HE KNOWS IS COMING.

STILL MISSING:SECURITY GUARD SHOT BY STEPHEN PADDOCK

THE FIRST PHOTOS OF SECURITY GUARD JESUS CAMPOS HAVE BEEN RELEASED FOLLOWING HIS STRANGE AND SUDDEN DISAPPEARANCE.

CAMPOS IS SECOND FROM RIGHT, HOLDING A PLAQUE IN THE ABOVE PHOTO.


HE SIMPLY VANISHED.


WHILE FOX NEWS WAS THE FIRST TO REPORT CAMPOS MISSING, WHEREABOUTS UNKNOWN, OTHER NEWS SERVICES PICKED UP THE STORY, BUT NOT MAINSTREAM MEDIA.
WHY NOT?
THIS COULD TURN INTO AN INTERNATIONAL MANHUNT, COULDN'T IT?


MAYBE THE NEXT "BIG NEWS" WILL BE THAT CAMPOS' BODY HAS BEEN FOUND, DEATH RULED A SUICIDE, HE WAS INDEED AN ACCOMPLICE TO PADDOCK, CASE CLOSED?

WHILE RESEARCHING FOR THIS BLOG, I FOUND A STARLING FACT...CAMPOS HAD A "MASTER KEY CARD" THAT UNLOCKED ALL HOTEL ROOMS.

SHERIFF LOMBARDO PRAISED HIM FOR GIVING POLICE THAT CARD TO UNLOCK ROOMS TO EVACUATE OTHER GUESTS ON THE 32nd FLOOR.

FROM ABC NEWS, OCT. 6, 2017:
"His bravery was amazing," Lombardo added. "He gave our officers the key card for the room and then continued clearing rooms until he was ordered to go seek attention."

Lombardo added that Paddock fired "well over 200 rounds" into the hallway when the security guard approached. Paddock had set up a camera in the hallway, apparently to watch for approaching authorities.

"It's amazing" that Campos didn't sustain more injuries, Lombardo said"    

IT'S "AMAZING" ALRIGHT, AND JUST ABOUT LOGISTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO BE MISSED BY 199 BULLETS IN A NARROW HALLWAY.

BUT NOW WE KNOW THAT SECURITY OFFICERS DID HAVE A "MASTER" KEY CARD THAT OPENED EVERY DOOR IN THAT HOTEL.

WELL, NOW JESUS CAMPOS IS JUST GONE...

MAYBE HE'LL SHOW UP, MAYBE NOT.

ABC reporter Stephanie Walsh reported on Thursday night that Jesus went missing.

"Media scrum tonight as we learn security officer shot in Vegas attack, Jesus Campos’ whereabouts are unknown". pic.twitter.com/Jk09tRlPsX

— Stephanie Wash (@WashNews)

"Jesus Campos was given an award this week for responding to the 32nd floor suite of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock.

The award was given to Campos on Tuesday. He disappeared on Thursday."


NO ONE HAS HAD CONTACT WITH CAMPOS SINCE HE APPARENTLY LEFT WITH HIS PERSONAL  SECURITY GUARD AND ANOTHER UNION MEMBER FROM A HOTEL SUITE THURSDAY EVENING, JUST BEFORE HE WAS SCHEDULED TO GRANT LIVE INTERVIEWS TO FIVE NEWS MEDIA.

THE UNION SPOKESMAN HAS STATED HE DOES NOT KNOW WHY CAMPOS LEFT, WHERE HE IS, NOR WHAT STATE OF HEALTH HE WAS IN WHEN HE ALLEGEDLY WAS TAKEN TO A "QUICK CLINIC" FOR MEDICAL REASONS.
HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT CLINIC NOR EXACTLY WHO TOOK CAMPOS FROM THE HOTEL.  


“The union doesn’t have any idea where he’s at at this time,” said David Hickey, international president of the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, which represents security guards at Mandalay Bay.

Hickey said he had been with Campos for the last four days, along with another union member, helping him prepare for media interviews. He said Campos was staying in a Las Vegas-area hotel suite, with a living room and an adjoining bedroom.

On Thursday at about 1 p.m., Hickey said he and the union’s local president took a meeting with MGM officials in the bedroom, while Campos, the other union member and a security guard hired by MGM to protect Campos waited in the living room.

At 2 p.m., when Hickey emerged from the meeting, he said Campos and the other people were gone.

Hickey said he called and texted the other union member. The only response he received is that Campos was being taken to a Quick Care health clinic.

Since then, he indicated Friday afternoon, he has heard nothing about the trio’s whereabouts.

“It’s a strange story,” Hickey said. “But it is what it is.”

Hickey said Campos was scheduled to do the Sean Hannity show on Fox News at about 6 p.m. Thursday from a local TV studio. After that, he was going to do interviews with NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN.

Hickey said he is not concerned for Campos’ safety, just his health. When asked if he thought MGM had anything to do with Campos’ disappearance, Hickey simply noted that "the corporation was taking care of him."

On Scene Investigation & Security Inc. was hired to provide 24-hour security at the home. A white truck is often parked outside or near the house, manned by security officers who intercept any strangers who approach the house.

A security guard named Troy, who declined to provide his last name, said CNN, Fox and various other local media outlets were camped outside the home for several days, typically arriving at 8:30 a.m. and leaving around 6 p.m.

Troy declined to say how many guards had been hired, who hired them or whether Campos was in the house.

Hickey said Campos was eager to tell his story and wanted to get it out in one day.
“He’s got a great story to tell,” Hickey said.  

MEANWHILE, CAMPOS IS NO LONGER LISTED ON MGM RESORTS' EMPLOYEES PAGE.
MANDALAY BAY HOTEL/CASINO SPOKESPERSONS HAVE OFFERED NO COMMENT ABOUT THE REMOVAL OF HIS NAME.


The employee profile for the Mandalay Bay hotel security guard who was shot by Las Vegas killer Steven Paddock has been scrubbed from the internal MGM employee database, according to exclusive pictures obtained by investigative journalist Laura Loomer.

According to Loomer’s source, Campos no longer appears with other employees whose names begin with the letter “j,” though the log does show a "Jesus A," employed as "Security Officer III."

A corporate media spokesman for MGM Resorts International declined to comment on the report, and instead referenced the recent statement by the Clark County Sheriff's Office regarding Jesus Campos.

DID THIS ARTICLE ABOUT "MYSTERIOUS JESUS CAMPOS" FROM NEWSWEEK ON OCT. 10 SPOOK CAMPOS OR MGM RESORTS OFFICIALS AND THE UNION?

"Much of Campos's story and background remains a mystery.
At first, Campos, a guard at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, was hailed a hero for helping guide police to gunman Stephen Paddock's room on the 32nd floor. Police said Campos was shot in the leg at the end of Paddock's assault on concertgoers—potentially distracting the gunman and causing him to panic and kill himself.

But now, questions have been raised after Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo revised the timeline and said Campos had actually been shot about 9:59 p.m.—a full six minutes before the mass shooting began at 10:05 p.m.—which means the guard could have instead led Paddock to start opening fire on the crowd for fear of being caught."

SOME JOURNALISTS HAVE ASKED FOR INFORMATION REGARDING A "GAG ORDER" THE CAMPOS FAMILY APPEARS TO BE UNDER.

Investigative journalist Mike Tokes visited the Campos home on Thursday night. He confirmed the family is under a gag order.

Comment from family of Jesus Campos at his home in Las Vegas:

"We can't talk about stuff right now"

Is the family under @fbi gag order? https://t.co/mb04MqTlA5

— Mike Tokes (@MikeTokes) October 13, 2017


I just doorstopped #JesusCampos after it was reported he canceled his interview with @seanhannity. I can confirm his family has a gag order. https://t.co/lNMaaaZzWC

— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) October 13, 2017 

'THE BLAZE' ALSO REPORTED THE DISAPPEARANCE OF CAMPOS AND POSSIBILITY OF A GAG ORDER.
THAT ARTICLE MENTIONED THAT MAJOR MEDIA HAD LEFT THE CAMPOS HOME AREA, THOUGH THEY HAD BEEN CAMPED OUT THERE FOR DAYS PRIOR TO CAMPOS' DISAPPEARANCE.

SEVERAL JOURNALISTS SAY THEY WERE BARRED FROM CLARK COUNTY SHERIFF JOE LOMBARDO'S MOST RECENT PRESS CONFERENCE AND THE SHERIFF DID NOT TAKE NOR ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT CAMPOS' WHEREABOUTS.

THAT SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED BY OTHER JOURNALISTS.
WHY BAR ANYONE?

MANDALAY BAY HAS MADE NO COMMENTS REGARDING THE QUESTIONABLE USE OF A FREIGHT ELEVATOR POSSIBLY ACCESSED MORE THAN ONCE BY THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTER, STEPHEN PADDOCK, DURING HIS STAY THERE.

CBS NEWS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO BREAK THAT STORY BACK ON OCT 11.

"Law enforcement sources told CBS News that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock is believed to have used the freight elevator at the Mandalay Bay hotel casino in the days leading up to last week's deadly attack. It wasn't clear what Paddock used the freight elevator for or how often he used it."  

HOWEVER ANOTHER RESORT'S CEO IN INTERVIEW WITH FOX' CHRIS WALLACE STATED THEIR POLICY ON FREIGHT ELEVATOR USE:
"Unsolicited remarks Sunday by hotel and casino mogul Steve Wynn about civilian access to hotel freight elevators during his Sunday interview with Chris Wallace.

Mr. Wynn, who is the current CEO of Wynn Resorts, which operates multiple hotel casinos in Las Vegas, noted that “nobody” in his companies history “has ever walked in a service elevator unless they were accompanied by a security official.”

To this Fox Sunday host Chris Wallace interjected and asked if Mr. Wynn was inferring that Paddock had used a service elevator in the Mandalay Bay hotel.

“I’m just saying .. anything like that. I’m not sure he did. But nobody ever goes in the back of the house unaccompanied by security,” Mr. Wynn replied after stuttering for a moment before responding."  

NO ONE WAS ALLOWED TO USE THAT ELEVATOR UNLESS THEY WERE ACCOMPANIED BY A SECURITY GUARD?
WHO ACCOMPANIED PADDOCK?  

ODDLY, THERE FOLLOWED A 'HOAX' NEWS REPORT WHICH APPEARED TO COME FROM CNN (IT'S NOW BEING CALLED A 'FAKE' CNN WEB PAGE) THAT CARRIED THE HEADLINE THAT JESUS CAMPOS HAD BEEN ARRESTED AS AN ACCOMPLICE TO STEPHEN PADDOCK IN THE VEGAS SHOOTINGS.
SNOPES AND OTHERS POSTED THE "TRUTH" AND THAT WAS THAT.... RIGHT?


On 12 October 2017, an impostor CNN lookalike web site doubled down on that tidbit of fake news by posting an article holding that Campos (whose name was repeatedly misspelled as “Compos”) was not only suspected of being an accomplice to the shooting, but had actually been arrested on the grounds that he, too, shot at concert-goers from the Mandalay Bay’s 32nd floor suite — and then shot the real perpetrator in the head...  

AND MGM RESORTS CONTINUES THEIR BRAWL WITH LVMPD AND SHERIFF LOMBARDO:

ABC NEWS, WMAR BALTIMORE, OCT. 11, 2017:


"Mandalay Bay staff did not call Las Vegas police until after Stephen Paddock had already begun firing on the concertgoers, according to "World News Tonight" on ABC.

ABC's information comes from an anonymous source who has reviewed records from the hotel-casino.

According to the report, Mandalay Bay staff did not call police when security guard Jesus Campos reported internally that someone was shooting on the 32nd floor. Nor did they call police when building engineer Stephen Schuck also reported internally that someone was firing at him on the 32nd floor.   

WHERE WILL IT END, HOW WILL IT END?
IS CAMPOS GONE FOR GOOD?

THIS ENTIRE THING HAS BEEN A FIASCO OF INCOMPETENCE, BACK-TRACKING, CHANGING STORY LINES AND BAD REPORTING FROM START TO NOW.

IT WILL END JUST AS THOSE "IN CHARGE" DECIDE IT WILL END AND WE, THE PUBLIC, WILL LIKELY NEVER KNOW THE TRUTH.
MEANWHILE, WHY ISN'T MAINSTREAM MEDIA SCREAMING, "WHERE IS JESUS CAMPOS?"

MOM GETS JAIL OVER REFUSAL TO VACCINATE SON



THIS WILL BE SHORT.
I'VE WRITTEN VOLUMES ON VACCINATIONS AND PARENTAL RIGHTS.

I'VE WRITTEN ABOUT THE STATE TAKING AWAY OUR CHILDREN, TAKING AWAY OUR RIGHT TO DECIDE WHAT'S BEST FOR THEM.

MY STANCE ON THIS, BASED PURELY ON DOCUMENTED RESEARCH AND THE INFORMATION FROM PACKAGE INSERTS IN EACH BOX THAT COMES WITH A BOTTLE OF VACCINE, FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND FROM ALMOST 30 YEARS 'IN PRACTICE' IN THE MEDICAL FIELD, HAS ALWAYS BEEN CLEAR
I WOULDN'T VACCINATE A DOG WITH HUMAN VACCINES.


BEFORE I HAD ANY MEDICAL TRAINING, WE VACCINATED ALL OUR CHILDREN AND ALMOST LOST TWO OF THEM IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE VACCINES.

VACCINES ARE NOT HARMLESS.

IF VACCINES ACTUALLY WORK, NO ONE WHOSE CHILDREN ARE VACCINATED SHOULD BE THE LEAST CONCERNED ABOUT THOSE CHILDREN WHO ARE NOT VACCINATED.

I REPEAT, YOUR VACCINATED CHILD SHOULD HAVE FULL IMMUNITY FROM ANY DISEASE AN UNVACCINATED CHILD MIGHT CONTRACT, YOU POOR GULLIBLE, UNINFORMED LITTLE SHEEP.

IT IS NONE OF YOUR DAMNED BUSINESS WHAT OTHER PARENTS DECIDE FOR THEIR CHILDREN.
LEAVE THEM THE HELL ALONE?
TRY IT.

NO ONE WHO IS ANTI-VACCINE IS TRYING TO HAND YOU JAIL TIME FOR VACCINATING YOUR OFFSPRING, THOUGH, PERSONALLY, WHEN A PARENT IS PROPERLY INFORMED, MAKES THE CHOICE TO VACCINATE ANYWAY AND THAT CHILD DIES OR IS DISABLED, I BELIEVE THAT PARENT IS JUST AS GUILTY AS THE VACCINE MANUFACTURERS AND SHOULD BE IMPRISONED, BUT THAT'S JUST MY CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH. IT'S WHAT I BELIEVE.

IF YOU ARE 100% CONVINCED THAT VACCINES WILL PROTECT YOUR CHILD, WHY WORRY ABOUT THEM GETTING ANYTHING A VACCINE IS SUPPOSED TO PREVENT?

YOU HAVE YOUR BELIEFS AND THE CONSTITUTION GUARANTEES ALL THE RIGHT TO HAVE THEIRS.

IN THE CASE CITED HERE, ONE PARENT WAS PRO-VACCINE, THE OTHER HELD RELIGIOUS BELIEFS THAT DID NOT AGREE WITH VACCINATIONS.
SHE WAS THE PRIMARY CUSTODIAN OF THE CHILD.

NO ONE KNOWS WHAT THE OUTCOME MIGHT HAVE BEEN IF SHE HAD UPHELD HER RELIGIOUS BELIEFS AGAINST THE WILL OF THE FATHER.

INSTEAD, SHE FOOLISHLY AGREED TO VACCINATE THE CHILD.
WHEN SHE DID NOT DO SO, SHE WENT TO JAIL AND LOST PRIMARY CUSTODY AND WHILE SHE WAS IN JAIL, THE FATHER HAD THE CHILD VACCINATED

TOO MANY TIMES CHILDREN BECOME PAWNS IN A VICIOUS GAME PLAYED BY COMBATIVE EX-SPOUSES.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT ISN'T ALLOWABLE FOR VACCINES TO BE POSTPONED UNTIL THE CHILD REACHES AN AGE WHEN HE/SHE CAN DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES WHETHER OR NOT TO BE VACCINATED.
I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT ANY CHILD PROVIDED ALL THE DOCUMENTATION REGARDING VACCINES WOULD CHOOSE TO BE VACCINATED. 
SOME MIGHT, BUT I THINK THEY WOULD BE FEW.

SUCH AN UNVACCINATED CHILD POSES NO THREAT TO VACCINATED CHILDREN IF, BIG IF, VACCINES WORK.

IT'S THE DOUBT THAT VACCINES WORK, ISN'T IT?
ISN'T IT THAT PARENTS WHO SHOT THEIR KIDS UP WITH GOD-KNOWS-WHAT ARE SCARED THOSE VACCINES DON'T AND WON'T PREVENT DISEASE?

ADMIT IT, YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN VACCINES EITHER IF YOU'RE AFRAID YOUR VACCINATED KID CAN BE INFECTED BY AN UNVACCINATED KID.
THAT'S HYPOCRISY!


THAT'S UNMITIGATED HYSTERIA  AND THAT THIS TYPE OF STATE OR FEDERAL INTERVENTION CAN BE ENFORCED IS HEINOUS, TO SAY THE LEAST.
THE CONSTITUTION DOES NOT GRANT SUCH RIGHTS TO ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY OR TO CONGRESS.

HAD WE NOT BEEN WITHIN 3 MINUTES OF AN EMERGENCY ROOM AND LIFE-SAVING CAPABILITIES FOUND ONLY IN HOSPITAL SETTINGS, TWO OF OUR CHILDREN MOST DEFINITELY WOULD HAVE DIED FROM ANAPHYLACTIC REACTIONS.

WOULD THE FATHER HAVE STILL BEEN SATISFIED HAD THIS CHILD DIED?
WOULD THE HYSTERICAL PRO-VACCINE CROWD HAVE REJOICED FOR ANOTHER CHILD VACCINATED AFTER ANOTHER DEATH BY VACCINE?


MANY FAMILIES HAVE A GENETIC TENDENCY TO BE EXTREMELY "ALLERGIC" TO SUBSTANCES FOUND IN VACCINES.

PARENTS OF FRESHLY VACCINATED CHILDREN WHO DIED HAVE WON LAWSUITS FOR WRONGFUL DEATH.

PARENTS OF CHILDREN SEVERELY DISABLED AFTER VACCINES HAVE ALSO WON LAWSUITS.


DOESN'T THAT TELL IDIOTS WHO DEMAND ALL PARENTS VACCINATE THEIR CHILDREN ANYTHING?

YES, VACCINES HAVE KILLED, HAVE ALMOST KILLED, HAVE RENDERED CHILDREN MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY DISABLED FOR LIFE.

MY GENERATION WAS GIVEN THE MONKEY-VIRUS-INFESTED SALK VACCINE FOR POLIO.

THAT VACCINE CONTAINED THE VIRUS SV40.
SV40 IS FOUND IN MANY CANCEROUS TUMORS.
IT WAS FOUND IN MINE.

PEER-REVIEWED STUDIES AGREE SV40 CAN, HAS, DOES CAUSE CANCERS IN MANY, AND HAVE STATED SO.

"
These data suggest that there may be an increased incidence of certain cancers among the 98 million persons exposed to contaminated polio vaccine in the U.S."

98 MILLION!

OUR FAMILIES WERE INVITED TO GET FREE VACCINES AS WELL.
MANY DID.

I SAW 40% OF MY GRADUATING CLASS DIE OF CANCER BEFORE THEY REACHED AGE 30.
I LOST MY PARENTS, MY ONLY SIBLING, THREE OF MY FOUR GRANDPARENTS, FOUR COUSINS, AN UNCLE AND ALL THOSE FRIENDS TO ONE DAMNED VACCINE.

IT TOOK DECADES FOR THE CDC TO ADMIT THAT THAT PARTICULAR SERIES OF VACCINES WAS CONTAMINATED WITH MONKEY VIRUS, THAT THE MANUFACTURER WAS AWARE OF IT AND DID NOT DISCLOSE THE FACT.

THAT PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY WAS KNOWINGLY HIDING THIS HORRIFIC FACT FOR DECADES.
I AM IN MY 4th BATTLE AGAINST CANCER TODAY. 

DON'T YOU DARE TRY TO TELL ME VACCINES ARE HARMLESS!  

IF YOU WISH TO TAKE SUCH A KNOWN RISK WITH YOUR CHILD, FINE, BUT I PITY THAT CHILD.

BUT IF OTHERS DECIDE AGAINST TAKING EVEN A ONE-IN-A-BILLION CHANCE THAT THEIR CHILD WILL BE KILLED OR HARMED, THEN WHY CAN'T THE PRO-VACCINE SCREAMERS SIMPLY SIT DOWN, SHUT UP AND GO ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT THEIR POOR VACCINATED CHILDREN WILL BE SAFE FROM HARM?

NO, PRO-VACCINE PEOPLE ARE CONTROL FREAKS BY MAJORITY.
THEY SIMPLY WANT TO CONTROL WHAT OTHERS DO.

OR ELSE THEY ARE WILLFULLY IGNORANT OF WHAT THOSE INSERTS FOUND WITH EVERY BATCH OF VACCINE STATES...IT CAN CAUSE DEATH, IT CAN CAUSE HORRIBLE PROBLEMS.

IGNORANCE IS NO EXCUSE.

CRAMMING YOUR BELIEFS DOWN ANOTHER'S THROAT FOR THE PLEASURE OF IT IS, AT BEST, PURELY EVIL.

MY PERSONAL OPINION, MY BLOG, MY WAY.
IF YOU DON'T LIKE THAT, DON'T READ HERE!
IF YOU DON'T WANT ME TELLING YOU THE TRUTH, DON'T YOU DARE TRY TO TELL ME ANYTHING.

AS A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL, I BOTH REFUSED VACCINES AND REFUSED TO ADMINISTER VACCINES.
AND WHEN I PROVIDED THE ENCLOSED LITERATURE FROM THOSE VACCINES, MADE PARENTS READ IT ALL, NOT ONE PARENT EVER SAID TO ME, "GO AHEAD AND GIVE MY CHILD THE VACCINE".
NOT ONE.


THIS IS AN ATROCITY, A BREACH OF CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.
AND IT IS 100% UNNECESSARY.


MOM GETS JAIL OVER REFUSAL TO VACCINATE SON


A Michigan mother has lost primary custody of her child after she was jailed for five days for not following through on an agreement to vaccinate her 9-year-old son.

Oakland County Judge Karen McDonald ruled Wednesday that Rebecca Bredow, 40, of Ferndale would no longer have primary custody of the boy, but would share joint custody with her ex-husband, James Horne.

Horne wanted his son vaccinated and Bredow agreed to do so last November but didn't follow through. The mother said vaccinations go against her religious beliefs.

Bredow was found in contempt of court last week and sent to jail for five days. The judge also granted temporary custody to Horne and ordered the boy to be vaccinated. He received four immunizations on Monday.

Bredow’s attorney said she was “devastated” when she found out her son was vaccinated.

OUR CHILDREN ARE OUR CHILDREN.
THE STATE DID NOT HAVE ANY PART IN THEIR CONCEPTION AND HAS NO PART IN WHAT WE CHOOSE TO DO TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN FROM POSSIBLE HARM.

LAS VEGAS SHOOTING: STORY CHANGES DAILY, DETAILS DO NOT ADD UP.


ABOVE: "MISSING": HOTEL SECURITY GUARD, JOSE CAMPOS. CAMPOS 'DISAPPEARED', JUST PRIOR TO BREAKING HIS SILENCE, FROM A ROOM WHERE HE WAS ABOUT TO GIVE AN INTERVIEW TO FOX NEWS, ABC NEWS AND THREE OTHER NEWS MEDIA.
HIS UNION DOES NOT KNOW HIS CURRENT WHEREABOUTS.
CAMPOS WAS ALLEGEDLY WOUNDED BY GUNFIRE FROM THE SHOOTER'S ROOM IN LAS VEGAS THE NIGHT OF THE DEADLY CONCERT SHOOTING.
FOX LISTS HIM AS "WHEREABOUTS UNKNOWN".

"When the cameras were about to roll, and media gathered in the building to talk to him, Campos reportedly bolted, and, as of early Friday morning,
it wasn't immediately clear where he was.
“We were in a room and we came out and he was gone,” Campos' union president told reporters, according to ABC News’ Stephanie Wash.

Media scrum tonight as we learn security officer shot in Vegas attack, Jesus Campos’ whereabouts are unknown. pic.twitter.com/Jk09tRlPsX— Stephanie Wash (@WashNews) October 13, 2017

Little is known about Campos, with few pictures to emerge of the security guard and no apparent online footprint surfacing to provide details about one of the central figures in the mass shooting.    

...

ABOVE: OBITUARY NOTICE FOR 28-YEAR-OLD KYMBERLEY SUCHOMEL WHO SURVIVED THE VEGAS SHOOTING, WASN'T WOUNDED, BUT WAS FOUND DEAD IN HER BED EARLY IN THE MORNING OF OCT. 9th. SHE WAS ONE OF SEVERAL WITNESSES WHO STATED VEHEMENTLY THAT THERE WAS MORE THAN ONE SHOOTER AND HER FACEBOOK PAGE HAD BEEN HER PLATFORM TO PUSH THAT CLAIM.
SHE WAS TAKING MEDICATION FOR A PITUITARY TUMOR BUT CAUSE OF DEATH HAS NOT BEEN GIVEN AS OF THIS REPORT FROM MONDAY.
SHE WAS MARRIED AND MOTHER TO ONE YOUNG CHILD.




FBI Las Vegas Division Director Aaron Rouse. Rouse, pictured above, was named special agent in charge of the Las Vegas Division by FBI Director James B. Comey on July 28, 2016.
MANY SEEM TO BE UNHAPPY WITH HIS HANDLING OF THE 'INVESTIGATION'.

Pictured above, 3 of the 4 officers who first responded to the room where Stephen Paddock was found dead.
In the back row, on the left, Detective Matthew Donaldson and on the right Officer Casey Clarkson who was present on the ground inside the concert arena.
In the front row both K-9 officers, on the left, Officer Dave Newton and on the right Officer Joshua Bitsko.

NOT PICTURED, the 4th man in the IMPROVISED team who breached the shooters room, S.W.A.T. member, Levi Hancock.
Hancock has not been interviewed by the press as of today, Oct. 13.

LATEST DEVELOPMENT, ASIDE FROM THE MISSING CAMPOS AND THE DEATH OF THE YOUNG SURVIVOR:
“The Las Vegas shooter’s Reno home was left unguarded over the weekend and was broken into, causing another round of police activity in the normally quiet Del Webb neighborhood, police confirmed Tuesday. (Reno Gazette-Journal, Oct.10, 2017)

“Officer Tim Broadway with the Reno Police Department said the suspect or suspects broke into the home through the front door over the weekend, noting he was not sure how exactly the suspects gained entry.”

HOW COMPLETELY INEPT IS THAT!
The Del Webb Parkway home was in the spotlight, yet had no police presence against invaders?
When is the last time a house at the center of a horrific crime, now key evidence, has been left open for intrusion?
WHO'S IN CHARGE?
FBI, LVMPD, ATF, WHO?
WHO LET THIS HAPPEN?
The prime question should be, the above article states, did the suspect or suspects carry anything away?
[Or bring something into the house?]

NO.
NO, as I alluded to in my previous blog on this tragedy, the prime question should be "Was Vegas an FBI Sting Gone Bad?" as Canada Free Press had the stones to ask in an article dated Oct. 8, 2017:    
"It is terrible to contemplate, but the possibility that Stephen Paddock was an undercover federal operative or informant cannot be ruled out. He may have been either set up or used by ISIS and/or a federal agency in a scheme that backfired.

The feds may have thought they were going to catch ISIS in the act of preparing a major terrorist attack. ISIS terrorists may have thought Paddock was one of them but realized at the last minute that it was a set-up. So they claimed him as one of their own.

Those of us who have been around Washington D.C. for awhile know that the FBI has been rocked by scandals of all kinds and a series of failures, ranging from Ruby Ridge to Waco to 9/11. Because these scandals involve death, stonewalling, and cover-up, the agencies cannot be trusted to investigate themselves.

 The New York Times said, “…agents have helped people suspected of being extremists acquire weapons, scope out bombing targets and find the best routes to Syria to join the Islamic State, records show.”


[THE FBI HAS BEEN BUSTED MANY TIMES IN THE PAST FOR AIDING AND ABETTING WOULD-BE KILLERS, FOR CREATING TERRORISTS WITH 'STING OPERATIONS', EVEN DRIVING ONE TO THE SCENE TO BLOW UP A BRIDGE, PROVIDING 'FAKE' EXPLOSIVE DEVICES, ETC]

For someone with even elementary knowledge of government incompetence and corruption, it doesn’t take a lot of imagination to consider the possibility that Paddock was a government informant or operative in a scheme that backfired. "


"MULTIPLE SHOOTERS"
HOW MANY TIMES DOES POLICE SCANNER AUDIO STATE THERE ARE MULTIPLE SHOOTERS FROM MULTIPLE LOCATIONS? 

HOW MANY OF THOSE CONCERT-GOERS STATED VEHEMENTLY IN ON-AIR LIVE INTERVIEWS THAT THERE WERE SHOTS FIRED AT THEM FROM MULTIPLE ANGLES, THAT THEY SAW OTHER SHOOTERS?

ROCKY PALERMO COMES IMMEDIATELY TO MIND, AS DO THESE IN 'LIVE AT THE TIME' INTERVIEWS, AND
BET shows others that were there asserting the same thing, multiple shooter.

But law enforcement continues to maintain there was only one shooter, despite the multiple witness testimonies to the contrary.
Law enforcement claims that they are aware of the "internet rumors" and social media claims, but never once acknowledge publicly that many of those claims are coming from eyewitnesses and shooting victims, people who were there at the time of the shooting, when the police were not.
It deserves further investigation, but we won't see that happen.

EVEN THE WASHINGTON POST CALLED ATTENTION TO THE SEVERAL POLICE OFFICERS WHO MAINTAINED THERE WERE MULTIPLE SHOOTERS. 

“Have confirmed that there are two shooters with fully automated weapons,” an officer said, according to the transcript, about a minute after the hotel guard was wounded."


IN THEIR OWN WORDS: FROM POLICE AUDIO RECORDING.  

Below is the radio chatter transcript of Las Vegas SWAT team members as they prepared to breach the concert shooter's door at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, as reported by USA Today on Oct. 3, 2017.

This police scanner audio is VERY important so please read carefully.

The complete archives for this feed can be found here:
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police - All Area Commands [Archives] - [ Premium ]

The link to the LIVE FEED that covered this incident can be found here:
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police - All Area Commands [Live]

10:08 p.m. Pacific time, 8 minutes after first shots were fired, 8 minutes.: Police dispatcher receives the first reports of shots fired at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. Country singer Jason Aldean is performing for 22,000 people, across the Las Vegas Strip from Mandalay Bay.
“We’ve got shots fired,” a police officer shouts into his radio, as recorded by Broadcastify.com. “Sounded like an automatic firearm.”

Thirty seconds later, another officer confirms the shooting.
“It’s coming from upstairs, Mandalay Bay,” the officer says. “I see the shots coming from Mandalay Bay, halfway up!”   

HALFWAY UP WOULD HAVE BEEN FAR BELOW THE 32nd FLOOR.


10:09 p.m.: "We have an active shooter!” one officer says. “We have an active shooter inside the fairgrounds!”

10:19 p.m. Another group of four officers approaches the Mandalay Bay.

An officer already in position says a group is on that floor.

“Copy,” the first officer says. “We’re going to make our way to give you support.”


10:32 p.m. Police say multiple reports from the tower at McCarran International Airport about people walking across the runways.

10:34 p.m. Amid the confusion, police keep alert to other suspicious activity. A black truck races out of a parking lot. A few minutes later, an older man wearing fatigues and carrying a black bag from the direction of the shooting climbed into a white recreational vehicle. 

10:50 p.m. As officers converged on the Mandalay Bay’s 32nd floor, they took precautions to avoid shooting each other.

“I’ll let you know before we come through a door, so we don’t have a blue on blue,” one officer said as he approached the floor.

The police confrontation with the gunman isn’t heard on the Broadcastify recording. But an officer on that floor of the hotel assures a colleague that they have enough firepower.
“I have multiple rifles and plenty of officers,” the officer says.

11:58 p.m. Police report the suspect is down. Paddock shot himself to death, police said later.

USA THEN REPORTS THE FOLLOWING AS IT HAPPENED:

1:55 a.m.
Police announce at least 20 dead and 100 wounded.

1:57 a.m. Police search two vehicles linked to Paddock, a Hyundai Tucson and a Chrysler Pacifica.

3:38 a.m. Police announce at least 50 dead and 200 injured.

4:11 a.m. President Trump tweets his condolences and sympathies to the victims and their families.

4:30 a.m. Las Vegas police say two on-duty officers were injured during the shooting, with one in stable condition after surgery and the other with minor injuries.

5:33 a.m. Police identify Stephen Craig Paddock as the late shooter, with at least 50 dead and 406 injured. One off-duty Las Vegas police officer is among the dead.


USA TODAY reported on October 3, 2017:  

Some officers took it upon themselves to immediately go to the Mandalay Bay,” [Sheriff] Lombardo said. “There was a team of six officers that approached security. They went up the elevators after discussing the situation with security and obtaining intelligence. They checked each floor, until they located were where they believed to be the room.

Subsequently they approached the room, received gunfire, they backed off and SWAT responded.”    
NO!
THE FIRST TEAM IN REPORTED NO GUNFIRE, NONE.
ONLY THE ONE HOTEL SECURITY GUARD REPORTED RECEIVING FIRE, AS YOU WILL SEE IN INTERVIEWS BELOW.

THEY WENT UP THE ELEVATORS?
WE WERE TOLD BY THE TEAM INTERVIEWED BY 60 MINUTES THAT THE ELEVATORS HAD BEEN SHUT DOWN SO THE SHOOTER COULD NOT ESCAPE BY THAT MEANS.
WE WERE TOLD THAT WAS THE REASON IT TOOK THE POLICE SO LONG TO GET UP TO THE 32nd FLOOR, NO ELEVATOR ACCESS.

DID THE "HEROIC FIRST ON THE SCENE" GROUP OF 4 GET UP THERE BY ELEVATOR OR NOT?
IF THEY DID, THAT WIPES OUT THE EXCUSE FOR HOW LONG IT TOOK THEM TO BREAK INTO THAT ROOM.
BTW, THEY SAID THEY HAD ONLY FOUR IN THEIR GROUP, NOT SIX.


On Monday [OCT.9], an updated timeline about when the Mandalay Bay security guard was shot was released by the sheriff, raising many questions.

Metro says that Campos arrived on the 32nd floor to investigate a door alarm.
When he tried to get in through the stairwell -- only to find the door didn't open -- Campos also heard drilling.
He then called for maintenance, he said. A maintenance man arrived on scene and as they checked on the door, Paddock started firing hundreds of rounds at both of them through his suite door.

This all happened [SIX] minutes before Paddock turned his attention to the crowd below.
IN HIS LATER STATEMENTS, CAMPOS CLAIMED HE ARRIVED FIRST, WAS SHOT, THEN MAINTENANCE ARRIVED AND HE YELLED TO HIM TO TAKE COVER.
MAINTENANCE STATES HE WAS SENT UP TO INVESTIGATE A DOOR PROBLEM BY HIS SUPERVISOR. BECAUSE OF ANOTHER "ALARM".
THAT IS A BIG CHANGE IN STATEMENTS AND 'INFORMATION'. WHOM DO WE BELIEVE? WHICH IS THE TRUTH? 


Investigators originally said that Stephen Paddock checked in to Mandalay Bay on Sept. 28. They now say he checked in on Sept. 25. A full three days earlier."

BUT MGM SAYS THE POLICE TIMELINE IS STILL IN ERROR:
"In a statement released on Thursday [OCT. 12], however, MGM Resorts International said reports of a gap {between] those initial calls and hotel security’s response are based on an error in a “manually created” report that was compiled “without the benefit of information we now have.”

“We know that shots were being fired at the festival lot at the same time as, or within 40 seconds after, the time Jesus Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio,” the statement reads.   

“Metro officers were together with armed Mandalay Bay security officers in the building when Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio. These Metro officers and armed Mandalay Bay security officers immediately responded to the 32nd floor.”

IS MANDALAY BAY COVERING THEIR OWN BACKSIDES IN CASE OF LAWSUITS, OR DID METRO LIE?
HOW CAN WE EVER KNOW FOR SURE?


Officers did not reach the 32nd floor until at least 18 minutes after Campos was shot in the thigh, according to the official timeline, and they appeared to have no idea he had been wounded at all before finding him."    

Las Vegas police are expected to release new information about the case Friday after a week that has seen the timeline of the shooting shift almost daily, raising questions about whether authorities could have done more to stop the gunman before he killed 58 people."      

WELL, RIGHT ON CUE, SHERIFF LOMBARDO CAME RIGHT BACK WITH YET ANOTHER "UPDATE" TODAY, OCT. 13:

"In the early throes of this tragedy, I had advised each and everyone of you that items of information were going to change," Sheriff Lombardo said.


He started the news conference with an update of the most recent number on people injured at the concert.  
He said, 546 people were injured that night, 501 have been discharged from hospitals. Forty-five remain hospitalized, some of them in critical condition. The number of dead, 58, remains unchanged.

Lombardo also addressed the timeline of the minutes leading up to the mass shooting.

"Unfortunately, a great deal of my investigators' time has been spent on this timeline. In the public space, the word incompetence has come up and I'm absolutely offended by that characterization." 



LOMBARDO HAS PREVIOUSLY STATED HE DIDN'T ASK FOR THE JOB OF UPDATING THE PRESS.

“I’m not comfortable with it. I didn’t ask for it, nor do I want it,” Lombardo said. “But I’m there, and hopefully I’m doing a good job.”

The national spotlight also brings intensified scrutiny. And a recent change to the timeline of events has directed pointed criticism at Lombardo and Metro.

Several former Las Vegas police sheriffs did not respond to requests for comment, and the most recent former sheriff, Doug Gillespie, said he has made it a point since retiring in 2014 to refrain from speaking about Las Vegas police matters.

BODIES STILL ON THE GROUND 36 HOURS AFTER SHOOTING.
WHY?  

It wasn’t until Oct. 3, the Tuesday morning after the shooting [on Sunday], that Lombardo walked the grounds of the Route 91 Harvest festival. Even 36 hours later, grisly reminders of the carnage remained.

“There were still bodies,” Lombardo said.


FROM ABC NEWS: OCT. 13, 2017
Lombardo stands firmly behind the timeline he gave the press on the 9th.  

 
Las Vegas authorities say they stand by their timeline of the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history, which has been disputed by the hotel where the gunman opened fire.  

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Friday that Stephen Paddock rained down bullets on a concert crowd starting at 10:05 p.m. Oct. 1. He has said that six minutes earlier, Paddock sprayed 200 rounds from his Mandalay Bay room into the hallway, hitting a security guard in the leg.  

That timeline released earlier this week differed from a week ago, when authorities said the guard was shot after Paddock opened fire on the crowd.

The changes led to questions about why police and hotel security weren't able to stop Paddock sooner.


Lombardo pushed back against criticism over the timeline, saying he was "absolutely offended" over any suggestion that authorities bungled the response. 

Mandalay Bay officials have disputed whether six minutes actually passed between the first gunfire in the hallway and the start of the concert rampage.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Friday that Stephen Paddock's autopsy found nothing unusual during a visual inspection, but his brain was shipped to a facility to look for any minute problems.

A BRAND NEW 'REVELATION':

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Friday that Stephen Paddock shot at the fuel tanks at McCarran International Airport near the Mandalay Bay hotel, where he opened fire onto a concert crowd below.  
Lombardo says the airport is reviewing safety measures and has contacted experts in fuel storage but that there's a low probability aviation fuel could be ignited by gunfire.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse says investigators have found no signs that Paddock had ideologies or connections to any groups.

ALSO NEWLY ADDED:
-- "On at least two occasions, a bellman helped Paddock bring bags up to his 32nd floor room. After poring over surveillance footage, authorities have yet to spot any red flags about Paddock’s actions leading up to Oct. 1 that may have signaled his planned ambush...  

-- PADDOCK DEFINITELY ONLY SPENT 2 DAYS IN THE ROOM FROM WHICH HE FIRED ON THE CROWD BELOW, HAVING MOVED INTO THAT ROOM FROM ANOTHER IN THE HOTEL ON SATURDAY.
THIS IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE FOR WHAT OFFICERS WHO BROKE INTO THE ROOM SAID LATER, THAT IT TOOK DAYS FOR HIM TO SET THINGS UP.


Paddock, a video poker player, checked in to Mandalay Bay on Sept. 25 — three days earlier than initially reported.  

Lombardo said Paddock spent those first three days in a separate room, and the hotel provided that room free of charge for unknown reasons. Paddock spent the remaining days in the corner suite where he staged his attack, and he paid for the suite himself.      

“We’ve learned that there’s a difference of comp days versus personal pay days,” Lombardo said. “We were going off the personal pay days.”      

-- WE ALSO LEARNED THAT PADDOCK WAS VIDEOTAPED GAMBLING DURING THOSE LAST TWO DAYS, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN A BIG WASTE OF PRECIOUS TIME IF HE NEEDED TO SET UP ALL THAT EQUIPMENT.

-- THERE WERE REPORTS THAT EITHER SATURDAY OR SUNDAY, PADDOCK'S CAR LEFT THE PARKING GARAGE, WAS GONE FOR QUITE SOME TIME, AND DURING THAT TIME, ONE OF HIS ROOM KEY CARDS WAS USED TO ENTER THAT ROOM.

-- HE HAD NO GAMBLING DEBTS.


Despite Mandalay Bay shooter Stephen Paddock’s history of high-stakes gambling, he had no known gambling debts, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Tuesday.

-- HE WAS NOT EXHIBITING MENTAL INSTABILITY

And, contrary to published reports, Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, told investigators in Los Angeles she had no concerns about his mental health.

In an extensive interview Tuesday with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Lombardo clarified those details and provided new information about the Oct. 1 shooting.

- HE DID NOT HIRE A PROSTITUTE.
Throughout his time in Las Vegas, Paddock did not interact with many people, the sheriff said, dispelling rumors the shooter had met with a prostitute for at least one night.

- HE LEFT LAS VEGAS SEVERAL TIMES DURING THE 5 DAYS HE WAS THERE.
Though Paddock checked in about a week [5 DAYS] before the shooting occurred, he did not remain in Las Vegas.
Authorities believe he traveled to Mesquite several times in the days leading up to Oct. 1.

- NO VALIUM PRESCRIPTION.
The Review-Journal reported last week that a Henderson doctor had prescribed Paddock an anti-anxiety drug in June, but the sheriff had no knowledge of relevant medical records for the shooter.


- HE PROBABLY USED A FREIGHT ELEVATOR AT LEAST TWICE.    
"Law enforcement sources also tell CBS News that Paddock MAY have used a freight elevator at Mandalay Bay before the shooting.
"He could have very easily been thought to have been that conventioneer, news media -- anything of that sort," said Las Vegas security consultant Tommy Burns.

- POLICE EVACUATED ROOMS BEFORE BLOWING PADDOCK'S DOOR.
KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN YOU READ THE TRANSCRIPT FROM THE TODAY INTERVIEW OF THE 4 OFFICERS AND THE INTERVIEW OF THE MAN TWO DOORS DOWN FROM PADDOCK'S ROOM.
"Police who responded evacuated rooms before entering Paddock’s suite, where he had killed himself."

THERE ARE MORE CHANGES THAN MEDIA CAN KEEP TRACK OF AND EVERY CHANGE SEEMS MORE FAR-FETCHED THAN THE ONES BEFORE.

IT READS LIKE A "MAKE IT UP AS YOU GO ALONG" BAD PIECE OF FICTION. 

FACTS DON'T CHANGE, AND IF THERE ARE CHANGES, IT'S BECAUSE WHAT WE WERE INITIALLY TOLD WAS INCORRECT, ERRORS... OR MAYBE FACTS NEEDED TO BE CHANGED TO SAVE FACE, TO EITHER COVER UP ERRORS, BUNGLED POLICE INVESTIGATION, OR MAKE REAL FACTS LOOK LIKE ERRORS?

WHOEVER KEEPS REVISING THINGS IS LEAVING MORE HOLES IN PREVIOUS REPORTS THAN CAN BE FOUND IN A SIEVE.


LET'S FOCUS ON THE HOTEL SECURITY GUARD, JESUS CAMPOS, WHOM WE WERE FIRST TOLD WAS HIT BY A BULLET FRAGMENT IN THAT "HAIL OF GUNFIRE" AFTER THE SHOOTING BEGAN.

NO, NEXT THE GUARD SAID HE WAS SHOT BEFORE THE SHOOTER TOOK AIM AT THE CROWD BELOW, BUT WAIT...
THEN HE SAID HE WAS SHOT JUST AFTER THE GUNFIRE BEGAN, BUT WAIT...
NOW HE SAYS HE WAS SHOT AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME AS THE SHOOTING BEGAN, BUT WAIT...

SO, INITIALLY THIS GUARD SAYS HE WAS RESPONDING TO AN ALARM THAT NOTIFIED STAFF THAT A GUEST'S DOOR WAS AJAR, A ROOM OFF THE HALLWAY OF THE 32nd FLOOR.

IF, AS IN BIG IF, THAT'S THE CASE, IF HE WAS SENT UP TO THE 32nd FLOOR ABOUT AN ALARM, WHY IN HELL DIDN'T SECURITY STAFF KNOW WHERE HE WAS WHEN HE FIRST CALLED IN TO SAY HE'D BEEN SHOT ON THE 32nd FLOOR, WHY ALL THE CONFUSION FOR OVER 10 MINUTES AS TO WHERE THE SHOTS WERE COMING FROM?
BUT WAIT...

THAT'S NOT THE STORY OFFICERS TOLD 60 MINUTES.
"The gunman at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas who shot into a crowd of thousands did it from a room on the 32nd floor. He may have killed many more if not for a security guard who arrived on the floor within 12 minutes of the onset of the attack. Soon, a small group of Las Vegas police arrived.

They organized themselves into an ad-hoc SWAT team and began storming room 135.

"WITHIN 12 MINUTES OF THE ONSET?"
THE POLICE SAID CAMPOS WAS SHOT AT 9:59 PM.
THAT'S 6 MINUTES BEFORE THE CROWD WAS FIRED ON, SO SECURITY DIDN'T STOP ONE DAMNED THING.
HE SAT IN THAT HALLWAY DURING THE ENTIRE SHOOTING OF THE CROWD AND THAT SHOOTING LASTED FOR 10 MINUTES AND A FEW SECONDS.
THAT'S A TOTAL OF 16 MINUTES, THEN IT TOOK POLICE ANOTHER 12 MINUTES TO FIND THE SHOT GUARD AND THEY SAY THEY DIN'T KNOW CAMPOS WAS SHOT UNTIL THEY ARRIVED ON THAT FLOOR.
WE'RE NOW AT 28 MINUTES BEFORE POLICE ARRIVED, NOT 12.

AND NOW THE POLICE CAN'T SAY WHY THE GUNMAN STOPPED SHOOTING.

[SEE TRANSCRIPT OF THAT INTERVIEW BELOW.]

THE MANDALAY BAY SECURITY GUARD SAID THE FIRST SHOTS FIRED WERE THOSE THROUGH THE DOOR INTO THE HALL, SIX MINUTES BEFORE SHOOTING INTO THE CROWD BELOW. .


From 'shots fired' to all clear: 72 minutes of terror in Las Vegas--L.A. TIMES
THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE ARTICULATES VERY WELL THE ODDITIES AND FREQUENT CHANGES IN "THE FACTS", WHICH SHIFT EACH NEW DAY.
ONE WOULD DO WELL TO READ THIS ARTICLE MORE THAN ONCE.

OCT. 9, 2017, FROM THE L.A. TIMES:

"Police have dramatically changed their account of how the Las Vegas massacre began on Oct. 1, revealing Monday that the gunman shot a hotel security guard six minutes before opening fire on a country music concert — raising new questions about why police weren’t able to pinpoint the gunman’s location sooner.

Officials had previously said that gunman Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nev., shot Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos after Paddock had unleashed his deadly volley at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.    
They had credited Campos, who was shot in the leg, with stopping the 10-minute assault on the concert crowd by turning the gunman's attention to the hotel hallway...

NOPE.
PADDOCK  FIRED ON THE CROWD AFTER HE SHOT CAMPOS.
 

"Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Monday that Paddock shot Campos before his mass shooting — at 9:59 p.m. — and they now didn't know why Paddock stopped his attack on the crowd."    

ABC NEWS CONFIRMED THIS EARLIER SHOOTING OF THE GUARD.

Sheriff: Shooter shot guard before he fired on concert-goers | abc7ny


OCT. 4, 2017
"According to an official timeline of the shooting released by police Wednesday evening, Stephen Paddock started shooting at the crowd gathered for the Route 91 Music Festival at exactly 10:05pm Sunday night, citing closed-circuit television from the concert venue.

NOW, IF THE COPS WANT TO CLAIM THEY ARRIVED 12 MINUTES AFTER THE GUARD WAS SHOT AT 9:59, THEN THEY ARRIVED AT 10:11 PM, AND SAT OUT IN THE HALLWAY AND LISTENED TO HIM SHOOT FOR ANOTHER 4 MINUTES?

THE SHOOTING ENDED AT 10:15 PM, LASTED 10 MINUTES.

BUT BEFORE THEY ARRIVED INSIDE THE HOTEL, TWO OF THE 'FIRST RESPONDERS' SAID ON 60 MINUTES THAT SHOTS WERE BEING FIRED ONTO THE STREET AS THEY WERE ENTERING THE HOTEL.


We still do not have a clear motive or reason why,” a frustrated Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said Friday. “We have looked at literally everything.”

McMahill said investigators had reviewed voluminous video from the casino and don’t think Paddock had an accomplice in the shooting, but they want to know if anyone knew about his plot beforehand.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE NEXT STATEMENTS:

In their effort to find any hint of his motive, investigators were looking into whether he was with a prostitute days before the shooting, were scrutinizing cruises he took and were trying to make sense of a cryptic note with numbers jotted on it found in his hotel room, a federal official said.

NOT ONE OFFICIAL, PUBLIC STATEMENT HAS BEEN MADE ABOUT ANY CRUISES, AND THE SHERIFF HAS STATED PADDOCK WAS NOT WITH ANY PROSTITUTE.

HOW WOULD POLICE KNOW THAT?
SECURITY CAMERAS IN EVERY HALL.

SO, WHERE IS THE VIDEO FOOTAGE OF THE SHOOTING DOWN THE HALLWAY AND THE FIRST RESPONDERS ENTERING THAT ROOM?

WHERE IS THE VIDEO FOOTAGE OF WHO CAME AND WENT FROM THAT ROOM?
WHY HAVEN'T THOSE VIDEOS BEEN MADE PUBLIC?


STILL ANALYZING THE NOTE WITH JUST NUMBERS ON IT. 
"The New York Times reported that authorities are trying to analyze the note’s meaning, but Sheriff Joseph Lombardo didn’t elaborate on whether they are significant or not.

“Lombardo said that it contained numbers that were being analyzed for their relevance, and that it was not a manifesto or suicide note,” the Times reported.

The [UNNAMED] official said investigators were interviewing other call girls for information and looking into at least a dozen cruises Paddock took in the last few years, including one to the Middle East."

NO, THIS DID NOT COME FROM ANY OFFICIAL SPOKESPERSON BUT FROM A TWO-BIT, SHOT-IN-THE-DARK ARTICLE THAT CNN FIRST PUBLISHED.

CNN CLAIMED 'INSIDER INFORMATION" FROM ANOTHER "UNNAMED OFFICIAL", JUST LIKE THE ONES THAT WERE PROVEN TO BE FALSE BACK IN JUNE WHEN CNN RETRACTED A STORY AND FIRED 3 EXECUTIVES FOR MANUFACTURING NEWS.

THE NEW YORK TIMES AND WASHINGTON POST WERE AMONG MANY WHO SLAMMED CNN FOR "FAKE NEWS".


YEAH, ALL THAT CRAP IN THE LAST SENTENCE, THAT CAME FROM OLD "FAKE NEWS CNN's" REPORTS FROM THEIR NEW "UNNAMED SOURCE".

AS 'PROJECT VERITAS IN THEIR INVESTIGATIVE REPORT 'AMERICAN PRAVDA, CNN' SHOWED US IN JUNE, CNN's "UNNAMED SOURCES" ARE USUALLY JUST CNN MAKING 'NEWS' UP AS THEY GO ALONG.

SEE <THIS>, ONE OF THEIR UNDERCOVER VIDEOS WITH CNN EMPLOYEES <HERE>, AND THE THREE REPORTS THEY DID EXPOSING CNN <HERE>. 

AND BE ADVISED, THEY HAVE NOW EXPOSED THE NEW YORK TIMES FOR THE SAME THING...CREATING FAKE NEWS TO DRIVE TRUMP OUT OF OFFICE.
[SEE <THIS> AND ALSO <THIS>.]


ANOTHER NEW FACT: 
- PADDOCK DID NOT USE SOCIAL MEDIA AS INITIAL REPORTS STATED, AND THE FBI MADE THAT FACT CLEAR, AS TIME MAGAZINE REPORTED....


"Where other mass killers have left behind a trail of plain-sight clues that help investigators quickly understand what drove them to violence, Paddock, 64, had nearly no close friends, social media presence or other clear connections to the broader world.

Analyzing Paddock's computer, cellphone and other electronic devices, Investigators have found no obvious ideological motive, no clear connection to extremists or activist groups or outward display of mental illness.
"There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events. That's the one in this one, and we are not there yet," FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said. "We have a lot of work to do."

HIS BROTHER HAD ALREADY TOLD THE PRESS HE WASN'T INTO SOCIAL MEDIA, HAD NO FACEBOOK ACCOUNT.

A QUESTION SOME NEWS MEDIA ARE ASKING: WHY, WHEN POLICE SCANNER AUDIO SHOWS REPORTS OF THE CROWD BELOW BEING GUNNED DOWN, DID THE 'TEAM' UP ON THE 32nd FLOOR DECIDE TO RISK THE GUNMAN OPENING FIRE AGAIN AND TAKE TIME TO EVACUATE OTHER GUESTS AT THE HOTEL?
SHOULDN'T THE THOUSANDS BELOW HAVE TAKEN PRECEDENCE OVER THE DOZENS ON THE 32nd FLOOR?
IF THE GUNMAN KILLED ALMOST 60 IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, HOW MANY COULD HE HAVE KILLED IN AN HOUR?


ABC CALLED 75 MINUTES ON POLICE RESPONSE FROM START OF SHOOTING TO FINDING SHOOTER DEAD.


Sheriff Lombardo says Las Vegas police took 75 minutes to breach hotel door from the time the first shots were fired https://t.co/aiaPBRqDqO pic.twitter.com/398hcWcAwv

— ABC News (@ABC) October 5, 2017


WE WERE TOLD THAT, BEFORE POLICE BROKE INTO THE ROOM, THEY CLEARED THE OTHER ROOMS OFF THAT HALLWAY ON THE 32nd FLOOR.

WHOM DO WE BELIEVE?
AUDIO FROM POLICE SCANNERS THAT BACK UP THE OUTCRY THAT THE ROOM WAS NOT BREACHED FOR 72-75 MINUTES OR THIS LATEST SCENARIO?

WHERE DOES THE TRUTH LIE?
WHO KNOWS THE REALITY OF THE ENTIRE SITUATION?  

AT FIRST, WE WERE TOLD ONLY THIS ONE GUARD WAS IN DANGER FROM THE SHOOTER OUT IN THAT HALLWAY, BUT THEN, WHEN QUESTIONS WERE RAISED BY SOME "CONSPIRACY THEORISTS" THAT THE GUARD HAD POSSIBLY BEEN INSIDE THAT ROOM, PERHAPS COULD HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE SHOOTER, THE STORY CHANGED.  
SUDDENLY, HE WASN'T ALONE, HE WAS JOINED BY OTHER STAFF.  

THAT'S STRETCHING THINGS, BUT SO DOES THE DISCREPANCIES FOUND IN INTERVIEWS OF THE FIRST RESPONDERS AND THE SHERIFF.

REPORTED ON THE TODAY SHOW AND BY ABC NEWS:

FROM 60 MINUTES:
 

Stephen Paddock opened fire on a security guard, Jesus Campos, and a maintenance man, Stephen Schuck, down the hallway of the 32nd floor before he turned his attention to the concertgoers below.

Both men called their supervisors, but neither the police account of the ensuing moments nor publicly transmitted police radio traffic indicate when the hotel security office dialed 911.

Stephen Schuck was one of the first people to encounter Paddock when he went to check out a faulty fire exit door on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay and Casino on Oct. 1, according to a new timeline of events.

“I was about a third of the way down the hallway and I started to hear shots go off,” he told TODAY in an exclusive interview Wednesday.


Schuck then saw hotel security guard, Jesus Campos, stick out his head from a doorway.

“He yelled at me to take cover
, and as soon as I started to go to a door to my left, the rounds started coming down the hallway," Shuck said. "I could feel them pass right behind my head. Something hit me in the back and I took cover."

[EDITOR'S NOTE, TODAY SHOW: An earlier version of the video within this story was headlined incorrectly, stating that the shooter warned Stephen Schuck of the danger. In fact it was hotel security guard Jesus Campos who warned him. The headline has been changed. TODAY regrets the error.]

According to the latest police timeline, Campos was shot about six minutes before the rampage began. Hotel officials released a statement saying that timeline “may not be accurate.”

Police say the current timeline will be revised again by Friday.
REVISED YET AGAIN?
WHAT KIND OF POLICE WORK IS THAT?
CONSTANT, DAILY 'REVISIONS'?
WHY CAN'T THEY JUST PICK A STORY AND STICK TO IT, MAYBE WHAT REALLY, AS IN ACTUALLY HAPPENED, THE UNCHANGEABLE FACTS.
HOW CAN FACTS BE CHANGED TO CREATE NEW FACTS?
THAT RENDERS THE "OLD" FACTS MERELY SUPPOSITION, AT BEST, AND LIES AT THE WORST. 


New audio recordings made public by the hotel’s corporate owner, MGM Resorts, capture the chaotic moments when Schuck called dispatchers to report trouble.

“Call the police,” Schuck tells hotel security. “Someone’s fired a gun up here. Someone’s fired a rifle on the 32nd floor down the hallway.”

Officers did not reach the 32nd floor until at least 18 minutes after Campos was shot in the thigh,
and they appeared to have no idea he had been wounded at all before finding him.

“They weren't aware of him being shot until they met him in the hallway after exiting the elevator,” said Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo.

NOTICE HE SAYS "AFTER EXITING THE ELEVATOR"...ELEVATOR. REMEMBER THIS.

"We have a security officer also shot in the leg on the 32nd floor. He's standing right by the elevator," a Las Vegas Metro policeman radioed, in a recorded transmission 20 minutes after Campos was hit by Paddock's gunfire.

BACK TO THE ELEVATOR:
In part, the response time may have been slowed by a decision to shut down the elevators, a move by hotel management described by Schuck in an NBC News interview. Some police had to climb an unknown number of flights of stairs carrying weapons and body armor.


At 10:16 p.m., an officer radioed his dispatch to "contact Mandalay Bay and have 'em shut down their elevators so he [the gunman] can't get mobile and we can take the stairs and block all the stair exits."

One officer was later heard on police radio traffic breathing heavily and announcing he'd made it up to the same level the gunfire was erupting from. “I'm in a stairwell on the 32nd floor,” he says in a hushed voice. 

HE COULD SPEAK IN A 'HUSHED VOICE' BECAUSE AT 10:15 p.m. THE SHOOTING JUST STOPPED AND NO MORE SHOTS WERE FIRED BY THE GUNMAN.
ALL WAS QUIET AT 10:16.
ONE OF THOSE SHOTS HAD TO BE WHEN THE GUNMAN WAS KILLED, WHETHER BY SUICIDE OR NOT.


[NOTE: This report has been updated to clarify that sources close to the Mandalay Bay hotel dispute the current official timeline and believe it will be revised...ABC NEWS]
FOR THE FIRST TIME, OUT OF THE BLUE, IT SEEMS THE GUARD SUDDENLY PRODUCED A WITNESS TO HIS WHEREABOUTS, ANOTHER HOTEL STAFF MEMBER, AN ENGINEER/MAINTENANCE PERSON WHOM HE SAYS HE CALLED OUT TO AND WARNED ABOUT THE SHOOTER (COULDN'T THE 2nd GUY SORT OF GUESS THERE WERE SHOTS BEING FIRED IF HE WAS RIGHT THERE?) AND THEREBY SAVED 2nd GUY FROM BEING KILLED WHEN OVER 200 ROUNDS WERE FIRED THROUGH THE DOOR OF THE SHOOTER'S ROOM.

OVER 200 ROUNDS STRAIGHT DOWN A NARROW HALLWAY AND THE GUARD WAS HIT ONCE AND THE OTHER GUY WASN'T HIT AT ALL? 200 ROUNDS, ONE HIT?

BUT WAIT...
THE SECURITY GUARD SAID ON ABOUT DAY 2 AFTER THE SHOOTING THAT HE WENT TOWARD THE SHOOTER'S ROOM BECAUSE HE HEARD DRILLING SOUNDS COMING FROM THAT ROOM.
DRILLING?
THAT'S WHAT HE SAID.
DRILLING.
NOT GUNFIRE, DRILLING.

SO, WHENEVER HE WAS SHOT, BEFORE, DURING, OR AFTER, WAS IT GUNSHOTS OR DRILLING THAT DREW HIM TO INVESTIGATE?
GUNSHOTS DO NOT SOUND LIKE DRILLING, DO THEY?
NOPE.
TWO VERY DISTINCT SOUNDS, RIGHT? 
IT WAS DRILLING, NO SHOTS HAD BEEN FIRED AT THAT TIME.

I HAVE A QUESTION: DID THAT MAINTENANCE GUY COME FROM THE DIRECTION OF THAT DRILLING?


THE 60 MINUTES INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT:  
"Las Vegas police give disturbing account of storming Stephen Paddock's hotel room."
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/las-vegas-officers-describe-storming-shooter-stephen-paddock-hotel-room/ 

I FIND IT VERY ODD THAT THE ONE TRAINED S.W.A.T. TEAM MEMBER WHO WAS UP THERE WAS NOT PRESENT AT THIS INTERVIEW, NO ONE HAS INTERVIEWED HIM AND HE HAS NOT MADE ONE COMMENT AT ALL ABOUT HIS ROLE IN THE STORMING OF THAT ROOM. 

Oct. 8, 2017

In a new episode of "60 Minutes," Detectives Casey Clarkson and Matthew Donaldson, Officers Joshua Bitsko and Dave Newton and SWAT team member Levi Hancock described the harrowing scene they encountered after storming Paddock's 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay hotel room on October 1.

Officer Bitsko told host Bill Whitaker that when they first arrived on the scene, conflicting reports had them believing the gunman was not acting alone.

"We're told that security is taking fire from a suspect on the 29th floor," he said. "And that we had other officers that were identifying the suspect was in a room on the 32nd floor.
So we're thinking multiple shooters at this point."

Eventually, the team was able to zero in on room 135 after a hotel-security guard named Jesus Campos reported that he saw about 200 rounds fired into the hallway from behind Paddock's door.

Although Paddock had barricaded the stairwell door "with a piece of metal and some screws," responders were able to use a "pry bar" to force the door open.

DID YOU CATCH THAT?
HE SAID THEY WERE IN THE STAIRWELL, NOT THE ELEVATOR.

Once they arrived on the 32nd floor, the makeshift SWAT team received a radio call advising them to watch out for booby traps.

"There's a room service cart with wires going on it underneath the door," Officer Newton said. "There was something black on top of the cart. So initially I'm, you know, I'm thinking, "This is a booby-trap. It's -- it's gonna explode."

"I could see the suspect's door was just riddled with bullet holes coming out," he added. "It looked like Swiss cheese."
To gain access to Paddock's room, the team used an explosive to blow the door down, which Newton says set off the hotel fire alarms, adding to the chaotic scene.

The team also encountered one downed white male who was bleeding from the face. He was later identified as shooter Stephen Paddock.

"I didn't see any apparent wounds to his head. But I did see a lotta blood that had come outta his mouth," said Officer Newton.

"There was-- a bloody revolver I think-- nearby. Nearby him that was on the ground consistent with him shootin' himself," added Officer Bitsko.

IN LEAKED PHOTOS OF THIS SCENE, A PISTOL CAN BE SEEN TWO TO THREE FEET FROM THE TOP OF THE HEAD OF THE CORPSE, AND BOTH ARMS ARE CLOSE AGAINST THE BODY.

THERE ARE LOOSE-FITTING GLOVES ON THE HANDS. THERE IS AN "ASSAULT RIFLE" PROPPED UP ABOVE AND ACROSS THE CORPSE'S LEFT ANKLE. HIS RIGHT FOOT IS RESTING AGAINST AN END TABLE. 

THERE IS BLOOD VISIBLE INSIDE THE MOUTH AND TWO POOLS OF BLOOD ABOUT THE HEAD, ONE STAIN NEAR HIS LEFT EAR IS VERY DARK AND ALMOST DRIED, THE OTHER, ISSUING FROM BENEATH HIS HEAD, IS STILL BRIGHT RED, MOIST AND PARTIALLY UNCLOTTED
.

Along with an arsenal of weaponry and Paddock's body, the team also encountered a few phones, laptops, a couple of drills and a variety of other tools.

UNLIKELY 'FIRST RESPONDERS'.
Sergeant Joshua Bitsko and Officer Dave Newton of the K9-unit had been training dogs when they heard the call.


Joshua Bitsko: So we jump in our cars and hop on the freeway and we were there probably within five minutes.

Detective Matthew Donaldson was doing paperwork at headquarters. He sped nine miles to the Mandalay Bay. In the chaos, he had to run the last few blocks. His cowboy boots rubbed his feet raw.
Matthew Donaldson: I took my boots off. I just threw 'em in the casino. That was slowing me down. I was faster barefoot and I was gonna be more effective barefoot.  

Bill Whitaker: How did you end up being first responders? Are you assigned to be first responders? Or you just got up and ran in-- into the danger zone and got there first?
Dave Newton: Correct. We heard it over the radio. We heard, you know, active shooter. Multiple victims.

Joshua Bitsko: We're told that security is taking fire from a suspect on the 29th floor. And that we had other officers that were identifying the suspect was in a room on the 32nd floor. So we're thinking multiple shooters at this point.

The three officers zeroed in on the 32nd floor just after a hotel-security guard named Jesus Campos encountered heavy fire--200 rounds shot into the hallway from behind Stephen Paddocks's door.

Officers Bitsko and Newton ran to the stairs. Detective Donaldson and a SWAT officer, Levi Hancock, did too. This ad-hoc group of officers didn't know what they would face, but they soon discovered Paddock had barricaded the stairwell door.
Joshua Bitsko: He had screwed shut the door-- with a piece of metal and some screws.

Matthew Donaldson: In the stairwell.

Joshua Bitsko: In the stairwell going out to the hallway right by his door.


Dave Newton: 'Cause he knew we'd be coming out that door to gain entry into his door. So he tried to barricade it as best he could. But thankfully Levi had-- a pry bar and was able to easily pop that door.

The K9 cops, the detective, and the SWAT officer were now a team.

Bill Whitaker: So essentially you became the SWAT team.

Dave Newton: Uh-huh (affirm)

Bill Whitaker: He had the advantage.

Dave Newton: Yeah, he-- 'cause he knew we were coming and we were gonna have to come through. We didn't know where he was gonna be in that room.

Joshua Bitsko: It's like a deadly game of hide and seek because when you're the one hiding you always know a person's looking for you it's-- before they see you. I remember thinkin', "Man, I wish I had my dog with me," because, you know, it's nice to have him lead a team.

Levi Hancock, the SWAT team member, was armed with explosive charges to blow through doors. Around 11 p.m. the team began to execute a plan.
They had heard no gunfire since reaching the hallway, and had no idea what or who was behind the door.
David Newton had a hand-held ballistic shield.


11 p.m., A FULL HOUR AFTER THE SHOOTING BEGAN, 50 MINUTES AFTER THE SHOOTING HAD CEASED.

ARE WE TO BELIEVE THAT, AFTER AN ENTIRE HOUR THE LVMPD COULD NOT GET A REAL S.W.A.T. TEAM UP THERE TO HANDLE THINGS.?

ARE WE TO BELIEVE THAT TWO K-9 COPS WHO HAD BEEN TRAINING DOGS BEFORE SHOTS WERE FIRED, A BAREFOOT DESK DETECTIVE, AND JUST ONE SWAT-TRAINED OFFICER, JUST 4 MEN, 3 WHO WERE NOT ARMED WITH "ASSAULT WEAPONS" OR RIOT GEAR WERE LEFT ALONE UP THERE TO DEAL WITH POSSIBLY MULTIPLE SHOOTERS?

THAT MAKES LESS THAN NO SENSE AT ALL.


Dave Newton: Now I'm standing out in front of this bullet-ridden door with nothing except for a shield that's, you know, I'm hoping would help a little bit. And-- that was the point I said-- I just start praying that nothing goes off of phone wise or radio or anything else 'cause we're trying to be as quiet as we can 'cause we didn't want him to know we were out there and start spraying at us. And I'm watchin' Levi put the charge on 'em. I'm like, "Hurry, hurry, hurry, but be quiet." And-- so then we got it hung and then we retreated back into the stairwell, blow the door.

Police radio: We need to pop this and see if we can get any type of response from this guy – to see if he is in here or if he's actually moved on somewhere else.

Dispatcher: All units on the 32nd floor SWAT has explosive breach. Everyone in the hallway needs to move back. All units need to move back.

Officer: Breach. Breach. Breach.


ALL UNITS?
ALL UNITS ON THE 32nd FLOOR?

THEN THERE WERE OTHERS THERE, SO WHY DID THEY ALLOW THESE 4 TO MAKE THE INITIAL ASSAULT ON THE ROOM?


Bill Whitaker: So you blow the door open. And what do you hear? Were there fire alarms going off?

Dave Newton: Yes, the fire alarms were going off--

Bill Whitaker: What else did you see?

Dave Newton: I saw a few phones-- laptops, a couple laptops he had in there. A lot of drills-- drill bits, all kinds of tools

Bill Whitaker: This was eerie.

Dave Newton: Very eerie. Yeah. The dust from the explosive breach. And then you have the flashing lights. And that looked straight-- like, out of a movie, you know? I did notice a note on the nightstand near his shooting platform. I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd. So he had had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there.

Bill Whitaker: What were the numbers? I am just trying to understand, were they calculations?
Dave Newton: Yeah, he had written we must have done the calculations online or something to figure out what his altitude was going to be and how high up he was-- how far out the crowd was going to be and what at that distance and what the drop of his bullet was going to be. He hadn't written out the calculations all he had was written out the final numbers that were on the sheet.

Bill Whitaker: Wow.


WOW INDEED!
WHEN HAD PADDOCK MEASURED ALL THOSE THINGS?
THAT WOULD TAKE SOME FAIRLY ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS, WOULDN'T IT?
HOW WOULD THIS K-9 OFFICER IMMEDIATELY RECOGNIZE THOSE  FIGURES AS ELEVATION OF THAT HOTEL ROOM, DISTANCE TO THE CONCERT GROUNDS?
HAD HE MEASURED OFF ALL THOSE DISTANCES, ELEVATION, ANGLES?

IF ALL THERE WAS ON THE SHEET WERE SOME NUMBERS, WHAT A GENIUS THIS K-9 OFFICER IS TO HAVE FIGURED OUT IN SECONDS WHAT THOSE NUMBERS WERE. 

WHAT HE SAYS GOES AGAINST ALL REPORTS FROM SHERIFF LOMBARDO OVER THE COURSE OF 6 DAYS THAT STATED THE FBI AND THE LVMPD STILL HADN'T DECIPHERED THAT NOTE. 

“Lombardo said that it contained numbers that were being analyzed for their relevance, and that it was not a manifesto or suicide note,” the Times reported.

DO MAKE NOTE THAT LOMBARDO HAD SAID JUST THE DAY BEFORE THIS INTERVIEW THAT THE NOTE WAS STILL BEING ANALYZED, SO  WHAT THIS OFFICER SAID HAD TO HAVE BEEN PURE CONJECTURE ON HIS PART, OR ELSE HE WAS SPEAKING FROM KNOWLEDGE THE LVMPD HAS THAT THEY ARE NOT SHARING WITH THE PRESS.

Bill Whitaker: Did you go to the window? Did you look out?

Joshua Bitsko: No. Because I know that S.W.A.T. had deployed snipers also. So I didn't wanna put my silhouette in front of a window-- because communication was still horrendous at that point.

SWAT HAD DEPLOYED SNIPERS?
WHERE?
IF SWAT HAD SNIPERS DEPLOYED, WHY HADN'T SWAT DEPLOYED A REAL TEAM TO THAT HOTEL TO TAKE OVER INSTEAD OF THIS PIECEMEAL TEAM?

COMMUNICATION WAS HORRENDOUS?
THEN HOW DID HE KNOW ABOUT THE SNIPERS?
RADIOS WERE ON, WE CAN LISTEN TO OVER 60 MINUTES OF THE CHATTER.
IT'S A VERY CLEAR AUDIO.
WHAT WOULD MAKE COMMUNICATION "HORRENDOUS" WHEN THE SHOOTING HAD STOPPED?

HE ALREADY SAID THEY HAD CALLED "BREACH" AS THEY WERE GOING TO BLOW THE DOOR.
IF THEY KNEW THAT, WHAT PREVENTED THEM FROM TELLING SWAT SNIPERS THAT THE SHOOTER WAS DOWN AND THE SUITE WAS CLEARED?


Bill Whitaker: Detective Donaldson, you came in and went through to the other room.

Matthew Donaldson: Yeah.

Bill Whitaker: What did you see?

Matthew Donaldson:
It was still very much in my brain there's 50 other dudes in here somewhere. You know, we were still clearing that room, the curtains, moving the curtains. I wanted to make sure somebody wasn't hiding between the windows and the curtains. It's a very small bedroom. Cleared the bathroom, cleared the shower. Came back out. They had to breach the other door on the other side.

WHAT 'OTHER' DOOR, WHAT OTHER SIDE?

And then -- once that scene was static it was -- it was essentially a crime scene. It was, like, stop what you're doing. Get out.

Bill Whitaker: It seems that he chose the tactically perfect and horrible spot for him to be able to rain down death on the people below him.

Dave Newton: Yeah, he did his homework.

Joshua Bitsko: Days of planning. Days of planning. He had tool boxes in power tools to run wires for his-- surveillance systems. For everything that he had, it took him days to finish.

DAYS?
IT TOOK HIM DAYS? 

BUT TIME MAGAZINE REPORTED ON OCT. 5 THAT PADDOCK HAD NOT MOVED INTO THAT ROOM UNTIL SATURDAY, THE DAY BEFORE THE SHOOTING.

EVEN
IF HE MOVED IN SATURDAY MORNING, THAT GAVE HIM MAYBE 36 HOURS IN THAT ROOM UNTIL 10:00 p.m. SUNDAY NIGHT.

HE HAD STAYED FREE OF CHARGE IN ANOTHER ROOM FOR 3 DAYS, THEN MOVED TO THE ROOM HE WAS FOUND DEAD IN ON SATURDAY. HE HAD PAID FOR THAT LAST ROOM, HAD APPARENTLY REQUESTED IT IN ADVANCE.
HE WAS AT THE HOTEL A TOTAL OF 5 DAYS.

THAT GAVE HIM 24-36 HOURS TO DO "DAYS" WORTH OF WORK INSIDE THAT NEW ROOM, ROOM 135.
THE MAN MUST HAVE BEEN A "SUPERMAN" TO DO ALL THAT ALONE AND WITHOUT BEING DISCOVERED IN JUST 24-36 HOURS.


Bill Whitaker: The sheriff was saying the other day that it -- it almost appeared as though he thought he would be able to get out of this, that he had an escape plan. Did you see any evidence of that?

Dave Newton: From what I saw, it -- I thought he was gonna -- he -- his plan might have been to shoot it out with us. Because there was a rifle on a bipod near the door and just the amount of ammunition and weapons he had. He could of held us off for hours.

THE INTERVIEW TURNS TO LOMBARDO.
Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo traveled to Mumbai, India, after the 2008 terrorist attacks that targeted numerous sites including hotels across the city. Hundreds were killed and wounded. Lombardo learned a key lesson: officers should immediately react to stop a shooter at any cost. His department has made that a pillar of its training ever since.

Bill Whitaker: Was this the scenario, the horror you had trained for?

Joseph Lombardo: Absolutely, cause that's how we train them And through all that experience and knowledge and training that we put together -- a team was immediately formed, acting on their own without supervisory direction -- Get a group of officers together as fast as you can. And immediately address the threat to cease the action.

BUT THEY DIDN'T...THEY WAITED AN HOUR BEFORE THEY BROKE INTO THAT ROOM.

No one knows when Paddock committed suicide, but the shooting stopped shortly after security guard Campos and the first of Sheriff Lombardo's officers arrived on the 32nd floor.

Bill Whitaker: Your guys got up there in, like, 12 minutes.

Joseph Lombardo: Twelve minutes. Twelve minutes. And--

Bill Whitaker: Up on the thirty-second floor--

Joseph Lombardo: You know, and during a critical incident, 12 minutes is a long time, you know? Could you imagine being in a fistfight for 12 minutes? It's a very long time. But when you step back and you evaluate it after the fact, it's a s-- very short period of time for th-- to get the intelligence, figure out what the hell is going on-- put a team together. Go up 32 floors and evaluate the situation. I think they prevented a thousand deaths. And I think it's important for the American public to understand that."   

ON OCT.6, 2017,

Senior law enforcement officials told NBC News that they have made two discoveries in Paddock's 32nd-floor hotel room that they currently cannot explain.

The first is a cell phone charger that does not match any of the devices that belonged to the gunman.

The second is a hotel record showing that one of Paddock's key cards was used to access his room while his car was outside of the hotel's parking garage.
(POLICE NOW SAY THEY FOUND THAT PHONE.]



THE FOLLOWING ODDITY' WAS REPORTED BY MOST MAJOR NEWS MEDIA ON OCT. 6.
The hotel suite of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock was accessed after his car left the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino’s garage area.

THE OFFICERS SPOKE OF THE SERVICE CART OUTSIDE PADDOCK'S DOOR AS DID OTHER NEWS REPORTS:
"To the right of the doors was a room service cart, covered with empty plates. Paddock set up another camera on the cart to watch the hall."

WHO PUT THE CART IN THE HALLWAY AND WHY WAS IT LEFT THERE BY HOTEL STAFF
?   



A GUEST WHO WAS "A FEW DOORS DOWN" FROM ROOM 135 SAID IN AN INTERVIEW:  
“I was actually watching the rest of the Sunday Night Football game and had gone to sleep,” he told WXIA-TV Atlanta. “Right around ten o’clock I woke up to the sounds of gunshots. Initially, I had kinda thought that it may have been some fireworks…and then it just kept going and going and going.”

After calling down to the desk, Morgan said hotel staff instructed him to barricade himself inside his room — explaining that they were aware of a “situation” on his floor and to remain calm.

“I could hear the police making their way up the hallway and they were basically breaking down the doors — opening the doors aggressively,” Morgan recounted. “Six or seven SWAT guys came in and just made sure that I wasn’t a bad person – that I was doing what I was supposed to be doing.
They ushered us out and told us to run as far and as fast as we could to get away.”

WAIT RIGHT THERE!
THERE IS AN ACTIVE SHOOTER INSIDE THE BUILDING BUT THEY ARE ADVISED BY POLICE TO RUN FROM THE BUILDING?
COULDN'T THAT GET THEM SHOT BY POLICE OUTSIDE EXPECTING A GUNMAN TO RUN FROM THAT BUILDING?


Once down on the ground, Morgan — who is from the Atlanta suburb of Lawrenceville — said he saw an “astronomical number” of police officers, but nobody offered details about what happened.   

HERE ARE ALL THESE PEOPLE RUNNING OUT OF A BUILDING WHERE A KNOWN SHOOTER WAS AND THEY AREN'T PUT ON THE GROUND IN HANDCUFFS WHILE BEING FRISKED FOR WEAPONS?

THEN THERE WERE THE MANY REPORTS FROM THOSE WHO WERE TRYING TO ESCAPE THE CONCERT THAT ALL EXITS WERE BLOCKED, AND ONE COUPLE EVEN STATED THAT SOMEONE FROM LVMPD BLOCKED THEIR EXIT AND TOLD THEM TO GO BACK.

WHY WOULD THAT HAPPEN?
WHY WOULD AN OFFICER SEND THEM BACK TO A 'KILLING FIELD'? 

WAS THAT REALLY A POLICE OFFICER OR AN ACCOMPLICE?

THERE ARE TOO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS, TOO MANY SAYING THERE WAS A LOT OF WRONG MOVES BY LVMPD.

ONE DOESN'T HAVE TO REALLY LOOK HARD AT ALL TO SEE ALL THE HOLES, ALL THE DISCREPANCIES, ALL THE LOOSE ENDS, AND IT'S BEEN 12 DAYS NOW, BUT 12 DAYS OF CHANGED STORIES, NEW ADDITIONS, LIKE THE MAINTENANCE MAN, WHO HAD NEVER BEEN MENTIONED THAT FIRST WEEK. 

SOMEONE SEEMS TO BE IGNORING A LOT OF "CLUES", FROM PEOPLE WHO WERE ON THE GROUND, ON THAT SAME FLOOR, ON THE POLICE FORCE, ALL WHO STATED THERE WERE MULTIPLE SHOOTERS.

WHY IGNORE SO MANY SAYING THE SAME THING?

AS I WROTE IN MY PREVIOUS BLOG ABOUT THIS, EVEN LOMBARDO STATED PUBLICLY THAT HE DID NOT SEE HOW PADDOCK COULD HAVE ACTED COMPLETELY ALONE.

THEN WHY NOT START FROM THERE?

THE FBI HAS ALSO DROPPED THE BALL.
MANY ARE POINTING TO THEIR INEPTITUDE AS WELL AND CRITICIZING THE FBI HEAD, ROUSE, FOR HIS HANDLING OF THE WHOLE AFFAIR. 


IS THE FBI DRAGGING ITS FEET TO COVER UP SOMETHING THEY DID OR DIDN'T DO IN VEGAS? 

NOTHING ADDS UP.

'POSTSCRIPTS':

AS I MENTIONED, FAKE NEWS CENTRAL, CNN reported that in addition to his frequent forays into casinos and gun shops, Paddock took 20 cruises, many of them in Europe and the Middle East. In addition to stops at ports in Spain, Italy, Greece, the cruises also stopped in Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, according to information provided by a law enforcement source.

CNN noted the source was unable to provide “cruise line involved, the type of cruises, when they occurred or the couple’s reason for travel.”


IT'S BEEN 7 DAYS SINCE THAT CRAP WAS "REPORTED" AND MAJOR MEDIA HAVE CEASED REPORTING IT, ALL BUT CNN. 

SEEMS THERE'S A BATTLE FOR PADDOCK'S ESTATE:

PUT UP BILLBOARDS ASKING PEOPLE TO COME FORWARD IF THEY HAVE FURTHER INFORMATION ON PADDOCK.
