ISIS claims responsibility for Las Vegas attack, says shooter converted to Islam a few months prior

FBI denies connection!

 

[Editor’s note:  Listening to this, we are hearing a machine gun, not an assault rifle, firing what sounds so be .30 cal, typically .308 or 7.62/54r.  We counted a single 10-second, 60 round burst.  We are going to follow this but nothing reported thus far as “found” in the room of the “lone gunman” is capable of this range, the sound, the rate of fire.  We are awaiting a day of BS and deception. With a maniac in the White House and virtually no reporting on the ongoing criminal investigations, we will be watching Mr. Trump very closely. g]

[Editor’s note: There is now no doubt at all that this is a false flag, a completely fabricated narrative and Stephen Paddock is the Lee Harvey Oswald of this farce.

Paddock and his conversion to Islam, his supposed affiliation to ISIS, this is exactly analogous to Oswald’s conversion to and back from Communism and affiliation to the Fair Play for Cuba movement – in short, a BS cover story.

Just as Oswald didn’t riddle JFK and his limo with a bolt-action Carcano that had a wobbly scope and a broken magazine, Paddock didn’t kill over 50 concert goers and injure another 400-odd more, regardless of how many rifles he had in his hotel room.

I’m pretty sure that at least 500 rounds were fired in order to cause that number of casualties and they were fired in a short space of time; fully automatic fire in sustained bursts. I am pretty sure that a belt fed machine gun was what was really responsible, or rather, two or three of them, firing from far closer than the 600 or so yards and 300 foot elevation of Paddock’s room in the Mandalay Bay, mostly likely nearby rooftops and they were skilled, experienced shooters, men who knew how to handle a machine gun and lay down a ‘beaten zone’ of fire.

However, what we need to focus on is not the how, but the why – why has this atrocity been carried out?

Only a person who has been in a coma for the last year or so or the dumbfuckiest of Trump supporters does not realise that Donald Trump’s presidency is in deep, deep trouble, beset from the start by investigations into both his criminality and the nefarious activities of the various hidden hands that inserted the bloviating orange windbag into the White House; further troubles have dogged the Trump presidency on a continual basis, many of them self-inflicted. Both sides of the political divide, Republican and Democrat have turned on Trump, international leaders have barely concealed contempt for him, in short, Trump is about as popular as a fart in church or a bacon sandwich at a bar mitzvah.

The last time a POTUS was so unpopular, someone dreamed up a scheme to blow up the WTC and put a large hole in the Pentagon, a scheme that both resurrected the Dubya presidency and provided the cassus belli for a series of wars for profit that lined the pockets of the US elite with the unfortunate side-effect of killing a few million dark skinned people in countries most trump supporters couldn’t find on a map with both hands if you pointed it out to them first.

So, is the ‘Las Vegas Machine Gun Massacre‘ (as I am terming it) an attempt to do for the Trump presidency what 9-11 did for that of Bush Jr .?

We shall see, but I expect the rhetoric that spews out of Trump in the coming days will provide us with a lot of clues as to where this is leading, and rest assured, it will be nowhere good. Ian]

ISIS claims responsibility for Las Vegas attack, says shooter converted to Islam a few months prior

The shooter, who killed 50 people and injured hundreds, converted to Islam “few months ago” and conducted the attack on behalf of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), Reuters reports, citing terrorist group’s web site.

“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” Reuters cited the Amaq, IS-affiliated website. “The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago.”

However, no proof was provided to back the terrorists’ claims.

Two unnamed senior US officials told Reuters that no evidence suggested a connection between the shooter and any international militant group.

FALSE FLAG! FALSE FLAG! FALSE FLAG!

What are the odds Las Vegas shooting was a false flag?

I’d say at least 50-50 – here’s why

What are the odds? That is the question we keep asking ourselves after each suspected false flag.

What are the odds that every “radical Islamic terrorist” is going to drop a passport or ID card? (See Michel Chossudovsky’s article Barcelona, Manchester, Berlin, Paris, Nice, London, New York: Passports and IDs Mysteriously Discovered in the Wake of Terror Attacks.)  What are the odds that the same Mossad-linked photographer will just happen to show up to film and publicize two terror attacks in less than a week? What are the odds that…? I could go on and on, and often do, but you get the idea.

The Las Vegas shooting, like so many “ISIS-related events,” also seems, at first glance, to defy the odds.

What are the odds that such a stunningly lethal shooting was done by just one guy – a proverbial “lone gunman” who ends up conveniently dead? When an event is “way too lethal” for the designated patsy to have done it, it’s probably a false flag. Examples include: The OKC bomb was far too big and lethal to have been a fertilizer bomb in a truck; the big bangs that blew the Trade Center towers to smithereens were too big and lethal to have been done by office fires; the Orlando shooting was too lethal to have been done by Omar Mateen, according to ex-CIA expert Robert David Steele; and so on.

Robert David Steele just emailed me: “I want to weigh in very strongly in support of the Las Vegas shooting being a false flag event. As with Orlando the numbers do not add up.”

What are the odds that a guy with no political ax to grind, no obvious psychological issues, no history of even so much as parking tickets, and no real interest in firearms and no serious firearms training (at least according to family members) is going to be willing and able to pull off something like this?

What are the odds that all of the witnesses who described multiple shooters are wrong?

What are the odds that DHS was in Nevada not long ago as part of a plan that ran from last November right up until very recently, mimicking events like the one that just happened, by pure coincidence?

What are the odds that the crackling gunfire heard in the video below, and other recordings, is coming from one guy shooting a semi-automatic (not full automatic) weapon?  And who turned the stage lights back on so the shooter(s) could see their targets?!

What are the odds that the police would take 72 minutes from the first 911 call to locate the shooter?

 

So what ARE the odds?

I hate to jump to conclusions. But given what we know about Operations Gladio and Gladio B, the above-noted issues do suggest the likelihood of this being another false flag event.

Operation Gladio was a Pentagon-sponsored NATO program that used false flag terrorism to promote a “strategy of tension.” As convicted Gladio false flag terrorist Vincenzo Vinciguerra explained:

Terrorized populations allow governments to trample on their rights. Terrorized populations are easy to stampede off to war. Terrorized populations become like little children, credulously listening to their leaders, who become substitute parent figures.

The free-floating anxiety generated by an event like the Las Vegas shooting can be turned against North Korea, Iran, Russia, or China. It can be used to push gun control. It can be used to keep the whole post-9/11 Orwellian dystopia going and growing. It can and will be used to bludgeon citizens into continuing to surrender their rights.

Since the likely suspects behind these events are pushing war and unfreedom, we should respond by summoning up all of our outrage in service to peace and freedom. Every time something like this happens, we should be clamoring for an end to the 9/11 wars and the post-9/11 police state….and for a real investigation of 9/11 and all of the false flag outrages that have followed.
