Mandalay Bay Las Vegas Massacre-

Knock, Knock

Not what it seems to be…not at all. But then again, it never is

The jack card is worth 10 points in the game of blackjack.. The ace can be counted as a 1 or as an 11.  If you are playing a hand of blackjack there is no ambiguity. Paired with a jack, the ace is 11 points. But if you are communicating a date in October, the 10th month, then the ace could represent either the 1st or the 11th.  Some people seem to get a real kick out of this game.

Las Vegas-October 1st, 2017

You had to know when you first saw this on the news that it would all be different in just a few days, but as a refresher, this is what they said at the beginning:

  • Location of incident: An open air plot of land located directly across from the Pyramid shaped Luxor Hotel and Sphinx; across the six lane Las Vegas Boulevard also known as “The Strip”
  • An estimated 22,000 person crowd was attending a country western concert called the “Route 91 Harvest Festival”
  • Grim statistics: 59 dead including “the shooter’; more than 500 injured
  • Location of shooter: 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel and casino
  • Shooting of concert attendees began at approximately 10:05 pm
  • 32nd floor:  Two police officers and a hotel security officer approach entry door to gunman’s suite -Gunman shoots through the door of his suite at 10:18 p.m. hitting the hotel security officer in the leg causing the group to back off and call for a SWAT team
  • Additional  officers arrive on scene by 10:30 pm
  • Police use explosives to enter the suite at 11:20 p.m. -the shooter is dead on the floor -numerous weapons lay on the floor-two windows are broken some 40 feet apart from each other- two tripods are set up at the broken windows with weapons affixed-a hammer is on the floor near one of the windows-a great deal of ammunition is stacked near the windows-spent cartridges litter the carpeted floor- several crime scene photos are leaked to the public including a grisly one of the dead shooter
  • The shooter in room 135 (a suite) on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay had blown out two windows 40 feet apart and had set up automatic weapons on tripods firing alternately from both windows
  • As many as 23 weapons were in the suite along with thousands of rounds of ammunition. When the shooter’s Mesquite home was searched police found at least 10 more weapons there.
  • Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos, unarmed, was the hero who took a bullet in the leg and valiantly awaited the officers arrival at the elevator

Las Vegas Harvest Festival Massacre Map

(Alternate) Facts that have dribbled out in the ensuing week – mainstream media style:

The shooter acted alone; his name was Stephen Paddock, age 64, multi-millionaire and resident in a retirement community just ninety minutes away from Las Vegas.  Everyone who knew him described him as being decent, balanced, apolitical, not especially religious, and a whole lot of fun to be around, a man with a great sense of humor.  He was a retired accountant who had worked as an internal auditor for Lockheed back in the 80’s.  According to Paddock’s brother, he made his fortune primarily from investing in and managing apartment complexes in Texas, Nevada and California. Paddock had a pilot license and owned two planes.

A couple of days in to the week following the mass murder the public was informed that Antifa literature had been found in Paddock’s room, presumably at the hotel. A few days after that the public was told that ISIS was taking credit for the mass murder and that Paddock had converted to Islam …all this being the spin cycle before the rinse, one might suppose.  That’s what happens when you have a narrative of a 64 year old former accountant turned millionaire gone wild and nobody is buying it.

In addition to the staggering number of weapons and ammo found in the suite there were also explosives, 4 video cameras, several drills, a hammer and a handgun.

And here is the most delicious detail of all,  the cherry on this vile massacre Sundae,released most recently (October 9th) as police walked back their original scenario that security guard Campos had been wounded after the shooting at the crowd had stopped….while in the company of several Las Vegas P.D. officers, during a firestorm of some 200 shots fired through the closed door.  Wait for it….Mr. Campos was actually wounded 6 minutes before the shooting started. He was wounded at 9;59 pm!!!

Now here is what they don’t want you to know

  • There were at least two shooters firing upon the crowd at the concert, at least one at Mandalay Bay and at least one much closer to the venue (not including the other shooters at all of the other hotels much further north on the Strip that you never heard a word about) Police were reportedly looking for no fewer than 7 shooters down in the vicinity of the Paris and Bellagio hotels
  • This was highly planned, but not by Stephen Paddock. Paddock was likely dead before any of the shooting began…well, that’s if it was Stephen Paddock at all
  • The front doors of the Bellagio Hotel were shattered by gunfire- The Bellagio is well out of range from Mandalay Bay and on the wrong side of the Strip . The front entrance of the Bellagio would not be in the line of fire of any window on any floor of Mandalay Bay
  • The Paris Hotel is across the Strip from the Bellagio and they also experienced gunfire
  • The New York, New York Hotel and the Aria also experienced attacks
  • The Tropicana experienced gunfire
  • There were dead and wounded at each of the aforementioned hotels
  • An Hispanic looking male and female had pushed their way through the crowd to reach the VIP section, stage left, at the concert. They began pulling people’s hair, tugging on their shirts to get their attention. They informed as many people as they could before concert security escorted them out that “you are all going to f…ing die!”  We know this because two women who took that warning to heart left the concert early and lived to tell about it

Memorable quotes from the police scanner:

First responders (Las Vegas P.D.) arrived at the venue:

  • “We have an active shooter, an active shooter inside the fairgrounds”
  • “This is CP just advising there are people down on stage left”
  • “CP, I need eyes. CP can you tell me where they’re are coming from?”  Dispatch cuts in with “They’re coming from Mandalay Bay”
  • “We have multiple casualties at the medical tent, GSW to the medical tent! Multiple casualties”
  • “Be advised shots coming from Gate 7….Gate 7”
  • “We have a rifle deployed at Mandalay Bay, Mandalay Bay. We are trying to see where the shots are coming from” (From this point reports are coming in from both the venue and Mandalay Bay)

Following numerous call ins frantically reporting numerous injured, many of them seriously wounded, this comes in over the radio:

  • “Control, see if we can have…contact Mandalay Bay, have ’em shut down their elevators so he can’t get mobile. We can take the stairs and block all the stair exits:”  Police had requested that the elevators be turned off to impede the escape of any perpetrators (Let that sink in for a minute. The importance of this will become clear later on)

Upon arrival at 32nd floor, they radioed this:

  • “We are seeing multiple flashes in the middle of Mandalay Bay on the north side …kind of on the west tower but towards the center of the casino …looks like one of the middle floors”. Check this out: 

Mandalay Bay West Tower, North Side

What we see in the map above is the side of the hotel which is not visible from the Strip. It is completely useless as a location for firing at the concert What it does afford is a perfect sniper nest for picking off people in the Luxor parking lot.  This is the area that one of the early arriving officers was describing to dispatch/control. Nobody, and I mean nobody has made mention of this anywhere else.

  • “Control, we just spoke to security at Mandalay Bay. They say they have shots fired on the 29th and 32nd floor”  At this key statement, we must hit the pause button. Time out. We will have to ignore the business of the 29th floor at this moment because there is something far more serious being revealed here and we do not know which of the three 29th floors they are being referred to.  When we key in on this in part 2, it should become obvious that Las Vegas P.D. has stepped in some deep, deep shit with their Campos narrative
  • They radioed back to dispatch that they had a wounded security guard waiting at the elevator as they exited on to the 32nd floor

This should be enough for part 1. Be sure to come back for part 2. There is ever so much more to cover in this twisted, botched up mess because this time what happens in Vegas will not stay in Vegas, not this time.
