Putting those numbers together gives you 91101 (aka 9/11/01). Spook markers abound in this psyop. To give but one example, the alleged gunman, Stephen Paddock, owned 47 weapons, 33 of which were purchased this year. Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be a numerology post. Instead, I’m going to just point to a few things that I feel haven’t gotten a great deal of attention or that I thought were very telling. The first thing has to do with Stephen Paddock.
Here are some of the pictures we are shown of him:
But in this video someone on youtube has been able to find background information using Instant Checkmate on a Stephen C. Paddock whose address in Mesquite, NV is the same address given for the shooter. And guess what? It isn’t the same guy! Here is the pic they found:
I tried doing the same thing with Instant Checkmate, but at the end they ask you to pony up $15, and I decided it wasn’t worth it. I went to the linked in profile, but the picture is no longer up. I did download the video, and if you find the original link is dead, please leave a comment here so I can try to fix it (same with all the other links). Without an implied endorsement of anything else this Youtuber has done, here is the video:
Is she simply mistaken? I don’t think so. So what about the guy who is all over the news? No idea. Maybe just some guy who died recently and they’re borrowing his identity for this psyop. On the other hand, the guy they’re showing us on the news does resemble Stephen’s alleged brother, Eric (who by the way looks very Jewish). So maybe the guy they’re showing us is one of the other brothers, either Patrick or Bruce. Or, maybe it’s just couple of guys, possibly brothers, who have assumed the identities of Eric and Stephen.
OK, next up: Stephen Paddock’s father, Benjamin. He served in the Navy in WWII, although we aren’t told in what capacity. Here is a guy who was allegedly a serial bank robber who spent a record time on the FBI’s most wanted list–nearly 8 years–until finally being arrested in Oregon. Newsweek tells us that “It was not immediately clear what happened after that arrest.” In fact, if you scan all the mainstream news articles on this, it’s hard to get an answer. I had to go through well over a dozen articles. The answer is … none. He didn’t serve any time other than presumably being held in jail awaiting trial. Mind you he was put on the FBI’s most wanted list after escaping a 20-year prison sentence by breaking out of Federal prison and described as a dangerous psychopath. In 1987 he was brought up on seven racketeering charges and was let off with a stiff fine. “My view is let him go…and good riddance” said the judge.
To cut to the chase here, this Benjamin Paddock has all the biographical markings of a spook, albeit a minor one. I seriously doubt he committed the crimes of which he is accused. He also has a coveted “get out of jail free card.”
Here is his Wikipedia picture, which is taken from his FBI most-wanted photo:
It looks…off. Like it was cut out of its background and pasted onto this non-background. The poor cutting is especially noticeable around the ears. Also the shadow under his chin looks too crisp–it doesn’t really taper off; it just ends. And what’s up with his nose? Especially the left side (our left). Here is a side-by-side with him later in life:
We don’t know much about the Paddocks’ genealogy, but thanks to Kevin, we do know that Benjamin Paddocks’ grandmother was Maria Koehn (which is just a variant spelling of the Jewish surname Cohen). “Her brothers Frederick and Henry owned the controlling interest in the American Manufacturing Company of Sheboygan Wisconsin, which employed 500 workers.”
That’s already enough to go on, but if we trace back further we find surnames like Folger, Foster, Benjamin, Moore, Palmer and Eddy, and firstnames like Ira, Aaron, Enoch, Elijah, Deborah and Judah. At this page, we find a Stephen Paddock from Nantucket marrying a Eunice Coffin in 1751.
The 18th-century Stephen is the great-grandson of Zachariah Paddock through one of Zachariah’s son’s, Nathaniel and his son Daniel. This Stephen’s mother is listed at Geni as Susanna Folger because she married a Jonathan Folger, presumably after the death of Stephen’s father, Daniel. The modern-day Stephen Paddock is the 8-g grandson of this same Zachariah through his son, Zachariah, Jr. This is significant because Coffin is a Spanish variation on Cohen, and the Coffins and Folgers were extensively outed in a detailed genealogical study by Kevin.
The Paddocks also just happen to share the last name of Army Colonel, Alfred Paddock, who was Commander of a Psychological Operations Group and the senior psychological staff officer in the Office of Secretary of Defense during the 1980s. I could not find any information on whether the families are related. Benjamin’s family comes out of Wisconsin, while Alfred was born in Idaho. But when I came across a picture of Alfred, I thought he looks a lot more like brothers Stephen and Eric than does Benjamin. Here’s a picture of them all side-by-side. You be the judge:
Of course this is in no way definitive and is probably a red herring, but in my opinion they look at least as much like Alfred as they do Benjamin. In other words: we really don’t have a lot of evidence linking these two brothers to their alleged father. They could be anybody.
And one last thing about this family: In one of his interviews, Eric Paddock was wearing a T-shirt for the Central Florida Community Arts, whose chairperson is Sara Brady. Brady owns a PR firm that did PR for the Pulse Nightclub, the family that allegedly lost their son to a alligator attack at Disney World, and The Plaza after the tragic crisis of Christina Grimmie’s presumably hoaxed death.
Crisis Actors: they really scraped the bottom of the barrel for this one, and that’s saying something. From Mike Cronk, the guy who could scarcely contain his giddiness when describing how his friend was shot three times in the chest; to Corinne Lomas who had once made an appearance on the Dr. Phil show as a narcissistic daughter; to Melissa Castruita, who also allegedly survived the San Bernardino hoax; to Braden Matejka, a Vancouver man who was shot in the back of the head and despite claiming both entry and exit wounds from a high caliber rifle, has no signs of any wounds–no bandage, no bandaid, no shaved hair, nothing.
But I want to focus for a moment on the diamond in the rough: Brian Claypool. He’s not a diamond because he’s able to keep his story straight (he’s not), nor because he’s able to stop reading from a script for more than a few seconds (he’s not), nor because he seems credible in any way (he’s not). No, he’s a diamond in the rough because he actually shed a few tears during an interview. That is, as far as I know, the first confirmed real tear from any crisis actor at any event. So I doff my hat.
Of course, Brian is lying through his teeth. He’s also a mainstream mouthpiece (and blowhard), making regular appearances at Fox News and other media outlets as a legal ‘expert.’ Turns out he has a law degree and a law firm. But like many high-profile spook lawyers, he seems to have a knack for picking up high profile fake cases from hoaxed events.
Another big red flag waving in the wind here is the CEO of MGM Resorts, James Murren. MGM owns both Mandalay Bay and Luxor. James is a member of the DHS’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council, whose stated task is to provide “advice on the security of the critical infrastructure sectors and their information systems.” Murren sold about 80% of his shares in MGM resorts in the past couple of months. We are told that other executives also sold shares as part of a corporate buy-back program initiated by the MGM board of directors. But that doesn’t make it any less stinky or implausibly coincidental. It just means the corruption was even more widespread, since we have to wonder why the board suddenly ordered this buyback. And on top of this there is already growing evidence of wider and deeper signs of insider trading.
Another thing that caught my eye was that the sister resort right next to Mandalay Bay is called The Delano. If you’ve read part 1 of my exposé on Smedley Butler that delves into the history of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, you’ll know why that name stood out to me. It suggests that whoever created that hotel was in some way connected to or referencing the Delano family. It turns out that the first Delano hotel was created as a boutique hotel in Miami Beach, Florida by the Morgan group. Woah. Double whammy. If you haven’t read that paper, go take a look to see why the name Morgan is an even bigger red flag, calling out a connection to an even spookier family.
Anyway, it turns out that the Morgan Group was started by Ian Schrager (Jewish), who is credited with co-creating the ’boutique hotel’ concept. Notably, he was also a co-owner of the famed Studio 54, whose frequent clientele reads like a who’s who of celebrity spooks (yes, I realize that’s redundant). Last year he sold Morgan group to SBE Entertainment Group. SBE’s CEO and chairman is Sam Nazarian, whose father, Younes (also a board member), is “a well-known philanthropist, businessman and leader of the Persian Jewish community in Los Angeles and Tel Aviv.” Of course Las Vegas is a town wholly owned and controlled by wealthy and particularly obnoxious Jewish billionaires.
A final note about the ‘mainstream’ conspiracy theories floating around. This is my reading based on the activity I’ve seen on Reddit’s r/conspiracy subreddit since the shooting began. There seems to be a concerted effort to promote the idea the Las Vegas shooting was a false flag, but not a hoax. In other words, people were killed, but it didn’t happen the way the official story says, and not for the reasons we’re given.
So basically we’re sort of seeing the unpacking of a mainstream JFK-style conspiracy theory. But instead of taking years, the mainstream conspiracy stories are being unleashed within hours and days. (If you don’t understand what I’m talking about with JFK, see here.)
Even people presenting evidence of a hoax (fake pictures, crisis actors) are quick to say that they think people really died. Their argument is that the attack was carried out by multiple shooters, and the crisis actors are being used to push the mainstream ‘lone gunman’ theory.
The reigning theory is that there were multiple shooters, and Stephen was a patsy who was framed. As for the “why,” I predict the most popular and widespread conspiracy about Las Vegas is going to involve the “deep state.” This term has now been hijacked to refer to elements of the US government and elite that (allegedly) oppose Trump. This is basically the so-called ‘swamp’ that Trump said he would drain.
We can see a similar narrative in the Charlottesville hoax, where even many of the people claiming it was a hoax tried to argue that it was “the deep state” trying to discredit Trump by making him look like a racist jerk. Here we’re being told that the Las Vegas false flag is aimed at destroying Trump in some way, shape or form. Just like Sandy Hook was blamed on Obama trying to take away your guns, this is now being blamed on ‘the deep state’ that is afraid of Trump and trying to undermine him. This is a highly effective form of misdirection, since to anyone with a liberal political bent it sounds so completely absurd that 1/2 the population or more will dismiss it out of hand as the rantings of some ‘gun nut’ or ‘Trumptard.’
Here is an example of this anti-Trump narrative that is now being pushed, culled from the comments section of this run-down on the shooting (which is actually pretty good, although it also pulls back before declaring this an outright hoax). From “Lon Spector:”
It WAS False Flag. But don’t say no one was killed. Killing people is the LEAST of their concerns. The ultimate objective is a military coup by this winter.
The Deep State wants to instigate civil war. They want to provoke the “deplorables” to fight back. This will justify the military coup to “restore order.”
The first order of business will be to remove President Trump via “trumped up” charges. Next will be Pence by any means necessary. There will be a leadership void and much unrest. They want to do this while McCain is still alive because he has the gravitas. McCain and other RINO’s along with Democrat swine will call for the military to restore order and confiscate weapons. Hilary will be sworn in by spring. A genocide program against the deplorables will commence. A “deplorable” will be any Trump voter, all non-cucked white, Christian male men, middle class or under, conservative Christ’s and unappealing white women. White women who rate 6 or over will be cultivated for sexual slavery.
Antifa and the Muslims have brokered a deal. When the “deplorables” are genocided, Antifa gets everything west of the Missisippi. ISIS gets everything east of the Mississippi. The Antifa are fools just like the Soviets were fools when the made the deal to divide Poland prior to WW2. Once established ISLAM will turn on the prissy, rich Marxists just as Germany caught Russia by surprise during WW2. Do you think for one minute that ISLAM can tolerate Harvey Weinstien, for example?
Sure, Lon, sure. Well in that case, I better go out and buy a gun to protect myself from Antifa and ISIS…
UPDATE OCT 17: Here is a link to a Reddit post with a good compilation of links showing that Vegas was a hoax.
UPDATE JAN 27, 2019: Here is a very good compilation video at LiveLeak that compiles some of the best evidence that the event was a hoax, including many videos from concert-goers saying in real time that the gunshots sounded fake and were coming from the sound system. There is a brief analysis starting at 15:10 of a video supposedly showing a bunch the aftermath where a bunch of people are laying around pretending to be injured.
Wow! Great work Josh.
I’ve mostly ignored this latest event, but I’m going to dig through your piece, here, and check out the links in more detail.
I’m glad you brought up the “don’t say people didn’t die!” narrative that’s going around, especially.
Phillip Solesky said:
Josh, I always like your work, but this is the best yet! I really want to thank you for putting this together. I’ve been trying to avoid this type of shit, but this one was way to “in your face”. You even uncovered some new actors. There was also a black guy who appeared on TV the night after being shot in the neck. At least they could have used a fake bandage!
Wow, reads like a thriller, thanks for sharing all this. Was the “shooter” then an invented persona? Do you think it’s possible the PTB envisioned this intrigue as a multi-tier tissue of lies to have us looking into it, possibly dividing us, loosing time with irrelevant details as the truth is something completely else? Same could be said with false-flag vs hoax debate, as LV incident’s effects remain the same no matter to the descriptions we attach to it. Is it then just another such incident that’s pushing the agenda to take away guns from Americans and finally change their constitution rights, thus disarming potentially dangerous public? Is it possible the PTB are planning in advance, where armed US citizens are deemed as too dangerous to allow such possibility? The very same incident pushes fear-porn propaganda to the record-high levels, although Oklahoma city bombing took more alleged victims – 168 dead and 680 injured. Many things changed after that, we could assume this LV shooting incident to be mirrored into new legislation as well. As always, this manufactured events are serving multiple purposes on so many levels, it seems as an endless rabbit hole.

Yes, I think your observations are on the mark. I’m not sure about gun control. I still think that’s a bit absurd. Remember that TPTB profit from these events enormously because people in the US always go out and buy more guns–especially if they think their gun rights are going to be taken away. See the last link in the post. Also MM’s article on gurus: http://mileswmathis.com/guru.pdf
But looking at the same type of non-US events, such as London or Brussels or Nice, there’s no profit from gun sales, yet we see them done? It seems such profit is a “minor” benefit in the plan, but not the essence of why they’re doing them. What EU has seen since, for instance, is military type of personnel on the streets like in Brussels (been there, seen that), with their machine-guns ready to be used, seemingly protecting the public from armed lunatics. Is that to be expected in the USA as well, with gullible people cheering for such tight “security” measures? Possibly, time will definitely show, I somehow have a feeling the consequences will not be anything we’ve discussed so far.
I’ve read that MM piece couple of times, it’s on my personal Best-of-MM list 🙂 .
Good point! I guess the gun sales are just an added bonus. More broadly it plays into their divide-and-conquer strategy. And also tightening the screw in terms of repressive laws. In the Vegas case it’s the so-called USA Liberty Act. I really doubt the endgame in the US is gun control, however. At the very least, I don’t think they’re going to try to start taking people’s guns away, though they may start a crack-down on new gun sales. But I doubt that will happen in any meaningful way. They don’t need to disarm people physically, because they’ve disarmed them mentally.

My money is on GLADIO. American GLADIO, UK GLADIO, Australian GLADIO. The monster comes back home. GLADIO is calculated to use a “Strategy of Tension” where fake terror carried out by literal “right-wing” ie industrialist, death squads, is used to create demand for oppression. Make people beg to be enslaved by frightening them out of their wits and focus on bogeymen instead of the industrialist banker filth who are the real enemy.
Massacres real and imagine frighten people to the point where they beg to be enslaved, so as to be safe. The people who organized the Milan Bombing decades ago and all the atrocities since are the same assholes doing it now.
Just notice who is in this documentary- and which media outlets they work for now.
Funny you mention this now, since Gladio and SoT was opened in my browser’s tab for a few days. Was looking at the definition of it in relation to the alleged Bologna massacre (one of few major ones in Italy besides Milano event).
Pushing fear and panic is certainly one of the goals and yes, I do believe it has some kind of a strategy attached to it. It’s one piece of their nasty machinery to keep us in the line.
Maybe I’ll look into one of those Italian events when I find some time, as they seem extra suspicious for numerous reasons.
And yes, to be clear: I am saying that the guys we see on the news portraying Stephen and Eric Paddock are not really them. Or at least not Stephen. If that’s the case, then you might wonder why I make a big deal about their genealogy, if they’re not really Paddock. Well, it seems to me they’re using the identity of a real person, with that person’s consent. And that person is the real Stephen Paddock. I assume he’s in on the con, otherwise he would be protesting the use of his name and identity.
Kevin Starr said:
There are lots of Hollywood connections to be made in that Paddock genealogy. The most significant link I made was to President William Howard Taft and Clint Eastwood through Robert Taft (1640-1725) and Sarah Simpson (1640-1724) of Worcester, Massachusetts.
Kevin Starr said:
Thanks Josh for referencing my comments, but I’m also backing off of the genealogy work. The “shooters” grandmother was supposedly a Gunderson. Ted Gunderson was one of the biggest misdirectors of all-time.
And to think there was a time when I thought “former head of L.A. FBI bureau” made Gunderson’s “revelations” more credible. Welp, live and learn…
Kevin Starr said:
I once knew a tough little Sicilian woman who would often say (interject thick Italian accent) “Leopards don’t change their spots.”
Phillip Solesky said:
I was right with you on Gunderson. He even sent me a very strange book (misdirection) about Hitler and Argentina right before his “death”? Who knows.
Anyway, the Ian Schrager twist is funny too. I remember the whole Studio 54 narrative about how the two Jewish kids who came from nothing just happened to start the most famous disco. Two arrogant assholes, even back in the 70’s.
Mathis der Maler said:
And don’t forget Gunderson’s link to ANthony Hilder. Hilder=Hiller=…you guessed it, Hitler
Some other important points are the FBI, media and hotel being caught lying about when he checked in. A man named Brian Hodge claims to have been staying in one of the rooms shooting came from. And pictures show only that room with broken windows, indicating the window in the suite was broken only as an afterthought.
Thanks. The discrepancies on this stack to the heavens. If I had listed all of them my post would have been twice as long at least. I only wanted to point out some things that I thought had gone unnoticed or under-noticed, perhaps with the exception of Murren, which has been widely noted.

Great stuff, Josh-
A connected family lends the ID of one of their own to a spook to portray Paddock (means sheep enclosure, which may be why that name was borrowed) Then, like the movie Hud, with Paul Newman, his old man, Melvyn Douglas, shoots his cow herd while they’re in their paddock.

I have really enjoyed your work, well laid out, and easy to read. I first heard of you through miles mathis. I think this excellent analysis of what went on in las vegas. Today a number of websites have published the names of the 58 alleged murder victims, complete with bios. Can these people be complete “plants”, with fake jobs, families, education, relatives, and friends and associates? Thx.
Thank you, Kenneth. Well, I suppose they very well could be completely fabricated. If past events are any example, they may also use many real identities of people who are insiders. I was not aware of the list. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

It’s not that hard to fabricate people and dossiers. See for example the 9/11 “hijackers.” Or the 9/11 Vicims report.

I have been looking into Kymberley Suchomel (nee Snyder). Her story has been making the rounds in conspiracy circles, because: 1) She is a witness who says there were multiple shooters on the ground; and 2) she allegedly died a week after the event. Although her alleged death is officially blamed on a seizure, people find it suspicious because she supposedly died when her husband left her alone for the first time since the incident. Two of her facebook posts recounting her story can be read here.
The first thing I did was check Intellius to see if she existed. She appears and the details match the published account. She struck me at first like a normal person leading a humdrum life. She works in SoCal as an ‘inventory specialist’ for Aero-Zone, a privately owned company that supplies parts to the aero-space industry. I went to their website, clicked on their ‘about’ page, and what do I see but an open letter from the company’s founder and president, Alfredo Dreyfus. When I saw that, I shouted out loud “You’ve got to be kidding me!”. If anyone reading this doesn’t know why I reacted that way, check out my research on the manufactured scandal in 19th Century France surrounding Alfred Dreyfus.
Alfredo’s back story is unknown. His LinkedIn profile does not include any education history. It just says he founded aero-zone in 1994 and that’s it. The company’s website says that “Aero-Zone was founded in 1994 by a small team of dedicated industry professionals with a small office in Chandler, Arizona (a suburb of Phoenix)….By making sound business decisions, and resisting the urge to rely on excessive financing, Aero-Zone has grown at a trend-setting pace. In January of 1998, as a result of our growth, Aero-Zone moved from our first office and warehouse to a 6,000 square foot facility nearby. We again saw several years of tremendous growth, despite significant adversity in the industry. In March of 2004, Aero-Zone moved into a 30,000 square foot Headquarters and Inventory Control Center…”
How were they able to avoid relying on financing and grew during despite industry downturns? No chance they relied on nepotism and connections, right? What kinds of connections? Well, just look here at the Wikipedia page for the LouisDreyfus company. It has historically been an agribusiness company, but it also is involved in finance, oil, weapons, etc. You can bet old Alfredo has called in a few favors over the years. Now I suppose they asked for something in return.
It was at this point that I decided to look into her story more deeply. It’s absurd.
This is her description of her and her friend escaping the venue via a fence that had been knocked down:
“But the gunfire wasn’t stopping this whole time. It wasn’t ceasing. It wasn’t slowing down. And It was directly behind us, following us. Bullets were coming from every direction. Behind us, in front of us, to the side of us. But I know, I just know, that there was someone chasing us. The entire time I felt this way. The farther we got from the venue, the closer the gunfire got. I kept looking back expecting to see the gunmen- and I say MEN because there was more than one person. There was more than one gun firing. 100% more than one.
“As we were running, we kept changing direction, because it felt like no matter what direction we took, we were being followed. So we ended up running in a weird triangular path. The first place I remember getting to was a parking lot, and I told Casie (who was slightly in front of me) we needed to get under one of the trucks. She turned to me and started her way back to me, and that is when the gunfire got even CLOSER than ever before. It was RIGHT THERE. It was within the parking lot. Everyone around us was panicking once again. So we ditched the idea of getting underneath a vehicle, and we continued the run for our lives. If you know me, you know I am a big girl, who is out of shape, and who definitely does not run for any reason. But I can tell you I ran like I have never run before.”
If the gunfire was coming from in front of them, why were they running towards it? If she said the gunmen were RIGHT THERE, then why wasn’t she able to see them? And weirdest of all, if they were running like hell, surrounded by gunmen on all sides, would she really take out her phone to call her husband and grandmother while still running (that was in a part of her description.)
Next, she says they ran towards Hooters casino but people were running out of that casino and so they assumed there were shooters in there, too. Then “at some point, we ended up at the airport & even entered the building for safety. Everyone as we entered were screaming at the staff “IS IT SAFE IN HERE?” but we weren’t getting anyone to answer us, so after running about 30 feet into the building, not getting the answers we so desperately needed, we decided it, too, wasn’t a safe spot, so we got out of there quickly and continued running.”
This is completely absurd, not just because it doesn’t make any sense, but because to enter the airport they would have had to go all the way around the runways and then down towards the terminal. This is not a situation where they would just “end up” at the airport. They would have had to go a mile East along Tropicana, totally exposed, then another mile South on Paradise to get to the terminal. So after running for two miles to the airport, they just decided to turn around because nobody was answering their questions? On top of that, it doesn’t make any sense to run to the airport. The most obvious thing to do would be to seek shelter at the nearest spot, which in this case would be the MGM grand that is right across from Hooters, or the hotel 6 nearby on the way to the airport, or one of the many gas stations and convenience stores and other places along the way. Just go on google maps street view in front of Hooters and trace their route. It defies belief.
Then she says they continued running. They crossed an intersection to get a limo driver to help them, then a cab driver who wouldn’t allow all five of them in. But wait a second, they were just at the airport. Why didn’t they get a couple of taxis at the airport? It’s Vegas for crying out loud — there’s a line of taxis a mile long waiting at the airport.
She says they then ran passed (sic) a liquor store where the workers gave her group some water. Well why didn’t they just stay in the liquor store with the friendly, helpful workers? But no, they were on a mission I guess. Which included passing by UNLV. And then, “I don’t remember at which time, but at some point, Ricky was reminded by Cassie that his Uncle Manny lived in Vegas. He called him, and we made a plan to meet him at a grocery store a couple miles away to get picked up.” Why couldn’t uncle Manny just come pick them up where they were? They had already run a good 3 and a half miles by this point, at least. She says they were exhausted and vomiting. She admits she was a heavy woman who was totally out of shape. Why choose to run another couple of miles?
It is also worth noting that her maiden name is Snyder, which means tailor in dutch and is often a Jewish surname.
Finally, one more absurdity stands out. If you read her post, you see that she was totally in shock after the incident. Just a complete mess. But according to this newspaper report, her “final Facebook photos are a pair of cowboy boots with an American flag and her new Harvest 91 Festival tattoo that includes the date of the shooting and the text ‘Country Strong.'” Really? That was her way of coping. I would have told her “too soon, Kymberley, too soon.”
UPDATE EDIT: Here is a story from a supposed blackjack dealer about her experience at the Hooters casino. Her name? Schanda Bennett, an alumna of Kent State. Her story of hundreds of concert goers taking refuge at the casino totally contradicts Kymberley’s story.

Ah to be vindicated. I was saying the same thing on a number of forums. Thanks for confirming my suspicions.
Excellent work, really helped tie up some anomolies.
The photo bothered me too, so I took a look from another angle. It’s not an outer fence. It’s TWO security barriers that split the audience in FRONT of the bump out on the stage.
Lining the stage is a mesh barrier to keep the audience seperated from the stage. As you make your way to the center, where the stage bumps out, it makes a right angle and continues towards the back of the venue.
IMO, this is the barrier you’re seeing in the photo. The bright lights and barrier/s can be seen in Jason Hartman’s video from a high vantage point at the mandalay, he was also interviewed.
On the opposite side is another barrier following along the other side of the stage. In between the two barriers is, roughly, a 5 foot wide aisle. I presume this would be for security to walk along the stage and then through the center of the crowd. Look at where the grass meets cement.
I agree about the people jumping over, but they’re coming from the aisle, in between the two barriers. This would be the “dead zone”, and the bright lights are coming from the left, where the stage is.
I don’t know if it’s a different day or not, I just recognize those barriers from doing sound reinforcement and taping down cables/cords. Not sure if it helps.

MM & Josh: Though I respect your research work, I must comment on the weakness on relying on public records businesses like InstantCheckMate and Intelius. Those are private companies, which can be hacked, misinformation planted, are not infallible, with databases storing outdated, not up to date records on many instances. If we consider for a moment how those companies get the info they sell or market, we should see that there is vast room for errors and wrongs.
Yes, there is room for error. But the key question is: how much error? If you took 30 people you know and did a search for them on these systems, I doubt you would come up with the types of errors at the same enormous rate that Miles unearthed in his paper. But it would certainly be worth doing it as an experiment. Though if you’re not from the U.S. and Canada, then you would not be a good test case. I have searched myself on Intellius and found two minor errors: one of them said I lived somewhere I’ve never lived, although my sister does live there so I could imagine the source of the error. The other is that they have her middle name spelled wrong. That’s it. Everything else is accurate. There is no missing information, wrong ages, etc. on myself or anyone in my family.
Ahmad Ibn Fadlan said:
Yes, you are right, according to Intelius and the like, I do not exist. Besides the expected errors, omissions and typos, I wanted to propose the idea that perhaps those bogus names or persons were planted to get exactly that reaction from truthers to swiftly dismiss the “event”. All your observations and Miles as well, are worthy, just let me add that I think it is a mixed bag: real elements with several fake ones in the mix. There is one station in LA, So Cal, GO COUNTRY 105 and the 2 guys that host the morning show from M-F went to Las Vegas to cover that event and they were out of the air the following week. They both admit come from military families, or may I say, families with a tradition of serving in the military. I took their absence from the airwaves as highly suspicious. I think TPTB want us (truthers) uncovering/analyzing/deconstructing/reverse-engineering their projects (fake and real ones) instead of us producing, creating our own, original stuff.
Hey Josh, I have been reading many articles and watching many videos. There is a video out there with this title “Las Vegas Doctor and Resident Analyze the Tragedy” for some reason the link won’t copy correctly. I don’t know who the couple are that are interviewers but the gals being interviewed have some interesting things to say. The doctor speaks about a different face being on the news in Las Vegas and that it changed later, it kinda sounds like your fellow posted.
I also want to mention that I had friends at the show I received a call early Monday morning from my husband sharing that our friend was there and that she was pretty traumatized over the whole incident.
The concert was 3 days long and she got injured on the first night by jumping around too much, she was on crutches and used a wheel chair at one time, I mention this because she was one of the the last to leave being she was a bit pokey. She was shocked at the end of the evening of how many people where lying around passed out after the show and she could not get over the garbage. Perhaps these first nights could of been nights with staged pictures.
On her second night she hung out with Adrian Murfitt, one of the fellows listed as killed. He definitley was there, they are both from Alaska. I was told this early Monday. Not sure if it was on the news already but she had been informed throughout the night that he had been shot. My friend is not a crisis actor, she is just a country music lover. What she believes to be true is that there was gun fire, and injured people around her, I have not asked about all the details as I am trying to be sensitive.
It appears that most of the live footage from people being interviewed seems to be crisis actors not real attendees. And who really wants to talk with the news if your are really under such distress I know I would not.
I also had a second friend that was there and she is a nurse, she did not attend the concert, although she did offer to help, and I am not certain as to who she spoke with but they told her that they had it under control. She thought that was odd since 560 or so people had been injured. Anyways LV was a ghost town on Monday and she said it felt very eerie.
Also, another very close friend has a very close friend that was at the concert, there is a posting of him with a gun shot wound on her facebook page.
So it seems something different is going on this time, rather than all the hoax style stuff from recent past..new webs, twists and turns..kind of like a new sherlock story.
Miles Mathis put out that Eric and Stephen are the same person. I have not be able to confirm that with photo overlays but will keep trying. Since there are so few pictures of Stephen and no videos, I am able to only work with a few pictures. Eric’s interviews are plentiful but few still shots. I will continue trying and will post a video if anything comes of it. Josh: did you get time to check out the Matching Gamblers linked above?
Just watched it now. I’m not at all convinced that is the same person, though I do agree they look alike. If you are going to do a facial overlay, I suggest reading over the methodology posts at pieceofmindful (see it listed under my links). If you don’t do it according to their method, then the overlay analysis is dead in the water. Not to say that their method is flawless, but it’s a very solid starting point for this kind of thing.
Here’s my latest truth quickie and with much respect to Miles, I don’t see it that way: https://youtu.be/o8DvgqKtUxs
Well OK, but you didn’t address any of the evidence and ignored what he wrote in his paper: “They have pulled an Adam Lanza on you here, my friends. Remember, I showed you Adam Lanza of
the Sandy Hook Hoax never existed. They simply manipulated photos of his brother Ryan Lanza. Same thing here.”
What he’s saying is that the images were manipulated to make them look different, but there are some things they didn’t change, and those are the giveaway. It would be like comparing a picture of Adam Lanza to Ryan Lanza and saying “well, they don’t look the same.” But if a picture of someone has been manipulated, then of course they won’t look the same.
I mean, you can disagree with him, sure. But if you don’t address the evidence he used to reach his conclusion, then your pointless video is just misdirection and noise.
Oddly , on September 30th there was a story, in the UK, about Boris Johnson, Foreign Secretary, who, on a visit to a Buddhist Temple in Burma, started reciting Kipling’s ‘ Road to Mandalay’. He was interrupted by the British Ambassador who advised him that he stop. The incident, though, happened in January of this year.
Josh: great thanks for the advice, will check out the methodology at pieceofmindful. I will say, overlays that I do have been interesting. I did an overlay with Matching Mothers from Sandy Hook/Donna Soto & Heather Heyer’s mom. It hit big for my YOUTUBE channel but eventually got pulled but YOUTUBE. I did have a change of mind since I accessed some more recent pictures of these women. People loved me and subbed when the overlay supported the concept that they are the same person and hated me when it “debunked” my own work. Oh well. thanks again
Josh: thanks for your thoughts and it may be possible “Eric” Paddock have been used to make the new “Stephen” Paddock. As for Stephen not being a real person I would probably agree with Miles on that. I have heard some information on Stephen that would be considered him as a real person and well connected so there is a potential that he’s been hidden long before this event. Intelius evidence is the best so far that there is no real brother here and even his father is a major issue as well. thanks.

Josh: Yours and Miles’ are fine research pieces on this “event”. Man, I was taken aback when I realized what Miles pointed out: how many jewish folks are fans of Country Music!! Remarkable… Take it from somebody that considers himself very eclectic regarding music: I like Jason Aldean’s and I as well like Avraham Fried’s or Matisyahu’s music.
Getting into numerology always makes me start to feel a little crazy even though I know that in some cases there is something to it.
Is the number “59” Trump’s signature number for false flags now? 59 Tomahawks into Syria. 59 dead in Vegas which – according to the latest timeline – started at 9:59. 32+59 = 91. What else… Trump property and Trump-rat exhibit on 5th Ave. and 59th st? Can we expect the number 59 to show up in prominent ways in Trump’s next false flag?

Interesting, Cory. Thanks. I for one am skeptical that TPTB care much about the value of the dollar. I think they have long taken power of the entire world, and China is just playing its assigned role in the kabuki theater production of ‘This Is Your Life.’ All of this apparent jockeying for power and international conflict and BRIC’s and IMF SDR’s etc. etc. is just a show to keep us from realizing that we are already living in a new world order under a one world government. Which is not to say that there aren’t conflicts and factions and the like. It’s just that they aren’t the ones we see on TV and the news, and their conflicts aren’t about the things we are told.
I always find myself coming back to that quotation from Jefferson in an 1807 letter to an aspiring newspaper publisher:
Chew on that a bit and then go read Miles Mathis’s paper on Napoleon Bonaparte.

Thanks for doing this research on the LV “event”. It sounds like you haven’t seen the “innocent bystander” video, which has been deleted, perhaps you can find another upload.
At the end of the video, the “IB”, yells for his female companion, “ISAMAR”. ???
NSFW Vegas Shooting Victims – Graphic and Gore
The “innocent bystander”(IB) is holding a camera and checking on what appears to be injured and dead people. He leaves when the bright stage lights abruptly go off, but not before he asks another man(AM) if he knows how to turn the lights back on, the man replies:
AM: “Ok, everyone right now, thats here on ground, is deceased.” (sic)
IB: “No they’re not.”
AM: “Ok, and who, are you?”
IB: “Innocent bystander brother, I, I, got, my nurse is a ugh, my mom’s a nurse…I’m just tryin’ to help…”
IB walks away calling out for his companion.
Thanks for this. I have seen the video. I actually linked to it in a comment over at pieceofmindful. I even saved a copy on my computer. I have also seen and downloaded a few videos analyzing it.* I did not intend for my post here to be comprehensive in any way. My goal here was to shine a light on certain aspects that I felt had perhaps been underappreciated.
There are many, many pieces of ‘evidence’ that don’t add up that I did not discuss in my post, and that video you linked to is definitely one of the most important examples. One reason it is important is because to an un-skeptical observer it appears to offer proof of actual death and injury. But there are many problems with it. One of them being the guy filming it who refers to himself as an ‘innocent bystander.’ Who the hell does that? Nobody, except perhaps a bad crisis actor who is frantically trying to remember the story sheet he was handed out at training where his role is described as “innocent bystander.”
Here is a working link to the video you mentioned:
And here are some analysis videos:
https://www.bitchute.com/video/XAlfWv5uoWmy/ (at about the 24 minute mark)
And a useful link at reddit, with links to other videos:
*After events like Vegas, I find myself compulsively browse through Reddit’s conspiracy subreddit. Although well over 99% of the posts are garbage, there are a few gems that make it worthwhile. It’s also a good time-saver for quickly compiling information on the event, though you have to set your BS and misdirection detectors to maximum power. You also have to be sure to sort the posts by newest first, as in the link I provided, because otherwise you only get the top-rated posts, which are almost always complete garbage, since they have been upvoted by shills and bots.

*humbly bows* THANK YOU!
You mentioned in a previous comment, about not being coprehensive, thanks for your patience with me. I’ve posted again about Miles work and the barrier…and this is why I mention, “IB”, he walks the barrier. The photo Miles uses and “IB” video seem to be from different days(as well as the “trauma truck” video).
It reminds me of “Ishmael DeJesus”, from Dallas, the man from the hotel who got video of the corner of el centro college, and was one of the first interviewed via phone the night of the event.
As he describes the footage, it doesn’t match what we’re seeing. This was my first indication that some videos may be from a, “dress rehearsal”?
In the 24:00 LV video(sane prog), she says, “I’m trying to match people to other scenes”…IMO, the reason it’s difficult, is because these may be from different nights.
Car placements, wardrobe, empty glass in one scene, full in the next?…continuity.
Watch the taxi video as she comes around the back of the stage…the street corner on the right is where the “temporary trauma” stage seems to be…it’s an empty corner, nothing there. In the “trauma stage” video, we see people using pink barriers to carry “victims” up the street, across the street, and to the staging area itself.
Maybe the pink barriers come after the taxi goes by…maybe. 🙂

For these wicked animals “staging” an event with Hollywood “special effects” is to
much trouble to go to. They don’t regard “deplorables” even as Human Beings so
why should they refrain from slaughtering them? When the coup overthrows Trump
this winter, the first thing that Hillary and the Deep State are going to do is arrainge
the genocide of the white male (Middle class or under.) and the sexual enslavement
of the white female. 99.9% of Human motivation is to obtain sex from the glorious,
angelic white female. That, (and robbery) are what fuels the Jihad.
Guns? I’m certainly not opposed to them. I suggest everyone be armed to the teeth.
At least go down fighting. They have to make their move this winter. That fact that
McCain is dying and George Bush has joined the chouris tells us the coup is happening soon. Hillary is not getting any younger. She has no intention of waiting

Why do you regard me as your foe? After all, it was YOU who first mentioned me.
I AM A FASCIST. Pure and simple. Do you dispute that there is a Deep State and

and have EVERY INTENTION of killing again?
Were you around during the first Slick Willie Administration? Do you remember
Oklahoma City, Waco, TWA Flight 800 among others? It was NON STOP FALSE
FLAG. Even in a regular military deployment soldiers are killed accidently.
Would you have us believe that no one was killed at all during those prior False Flags?
When Mr. Slick Clinton deployed Troops to Yougoslavia, the media said that the
soldiers were commiting suicide. Not a single military casulity was admitted.
This is how weeded the media has been to liberial lies. It was non stop media lies
that allowed the slicksters to get away with EVERYTHING just as the non stop
liberal lies have allowed Sha Baa Kaa to get away with everything. And the satanic
Deep State Shaa Baa Kaa holdovers. If they DIDN’T KILL THAT would be the rarity.
If the Media and Deep State didn’t run EVERYTHING then Mrs. Slick wouldn’t even

Yes, I would have you believe that no one was killed at Waco, Oklahoma City, Ruby Ridge, etc. etc.
I consider you my foe, because it is clear to me that you are deliberately trying to spread disinfo, plus you came on my blog to do so. If by some chance I am wrong in my assessment, then it means you actually think that Trump is an enemy of “the deep state,” rather than its tool. In that case, you are worthy of my disdain.

Caroline C. said:
I searched this page for heli and got nothing. A complete analysis has to include the helicopters that show up as moving lighted dots in the sky over the site. The multiple chopper story is documented on youtube on the John E Hoover channel. That’s not the creator’s real name, btw.
There was corroboration from some shot-spotter software created by students at Cornell.m They fed it multiple witnesses’ cell phone footage. The software used loudness. time codes and GPS of gunfire instances to draw a map showing where shots came from. It came out as a few locations in an arc to the southwest of the crowd, as I recall.
(“Hoover” covered the Cornell software and wrote to the authors. AFAIK they did not reply. They had somehow interpreted their results as confirming the hotel-room shooter.)
A day or two after this event occurred I received a phone call from a friend who lives in PA. He told me that his second cousin was killed in the event. The cousin’s name was Bill Wolff, and he was in Vegas with his wife at the time. My friend did not attend the funeral. He says that his mother (Bill’s first cousin by marriage, I believe) did. He did not know whether it was an open casket. (I asked.) He says he did not know Bill other than having casually met him a few times.
This is Bill:
There are a few ways I can account for the evidence I have and what you present above:
-Bill died, in the manner alleged.
-Bill died, in some other manner, but was cynically exploited post-death in order to sustain a narrative. If this is true then:
*Bill’s wife is lying, for some bizarre reason, about his true cause of death, and is going along with an establishment narrative alleging “domestic terrorism”.
*She doesn’t actually know that he died in some other way, and has been fooled into thinking it was “domestic terrorism”.
-Bill didn’t die. If that’s true then:
*His wife is lying
*She has been somehow fooled into believing he really is dead.
Since I don’t think the average person would be fooled into identifying a fake corpse of their spouse, particularly one that wasn’t alleged to have gross, deformative injuries or the like, but rather simply gunshot wounds, I’m going to assume that she wasn’t tricked.
That would leave “lying” as the only explanation for her behavior IF Bill didn’t really die.
However, I have zero evidence to indicate that Bill didn’t die. A flimsy official story is not evidence that Bill didn’t die. On the contrary, I have some second-hand testimony that he did, and some circumstantial evidence that he did. I cannot possibly prove that he did OR didn’t without an attempt at exhuming the man’s corpse, however, so it seems to me this is a dead-end line of reasoning, no pun intended.
If he didn’t die then at the least his wife is lying to cover for him, and on top of that she hasn’t jetted off somewhere (to my knowledge) to join him on whatever tropical island he secretly retired to. She lied, continues to lie, and apparently has no interest in hooking back up with still living Bill. I have zero evidence to support such an allegation, were I to make it, and the same circumstantial evidence and second-handed testimony arguing against it. I cannot know whether she is or isn’t lying without the body itself as evidence so, again, a fruitless line of questioning.
Regarding the possibility that he died in some other manner and was used, again either his wife is lying or she was conned. I don’t find it plausible to imagine he died of a heart attack in Vegas and was opportunistically shoved into the storyline but hell I guess it’s possible. Goofy, but I can’t completely rule it out.
Now then: you are under no obligation to believe me. I’m well aware of how often someone who “knows someone who died” pops up, usually with little history or background, then typically disappears when challenged never to be heard from again. I am not claiming to have known Bill. I have a friend who was related to Bill whom I have zero reason to doubt, hence Bill was definitely an actual, honest-to-god person as far as I’m concerned. Your mileage may vary. I’ve posted here before, and will defend what I say for the truth that it is, to whatever extent I’m able without naming my friend (absent his permission, if it’s asked)
Anyway, that is all I can say with 100% confidence: Bill was an actual person. He must be, because if he were not that would mean that a whole family of people, one of whom has been a great friend for almost 30 years, are lying to me by literally pretending he was, which position I cannot give a moment’s credibility to. You may as well try to convince me my friend isn’t real.
None of which means (and I really wish I didn’t feel like I have to say this first, but it’s probably a good bet someone will accuse me of it) that I believe the official story, either. It’s got more holes than swiss cheese. I have more problems with it than I know what to do with, but it isn’t necessary to sink one ship in order to raise another. Just because I don’t believe the official line doesn’t mean I have to believe that Bill didn’t die.
The possibility remains that Bill’s death was faked, however implausible I may find that, which would still leave us in the realm of “hoax”. I don’t believe it to be the case but how could I possibly disprove it without digging the man up?
From your article I assume that your position would be that Bill’s death is fake, that is if you grant him an existence at all. (If you deny his very existence then I know for a fact you’re wrong to do so, yet I recognize that you cannot make the same determination for yourself in the manner I’ve done) Well, at the end of the day, how in the world would you prove such a thing? More importantly, how would someone disprove your assertion?
Do you see what I mean? How do you prove Bill didn’t die? How does anyone else prove to you that he did?
The answer is that you can only do so by producing the man himself, and they cannot do so for reasons which should already be clear. You’re rather safely tucked behind an impenetrable wall. You can continue to claim that no one died because really: who’s gonna be able to counter you? You present an unfalsifiable claim when you allege no deaths, if for no other reason than that common decency precludes anyone marching off to the graveyard with a shovel to prove you wrong.
The official story is full of holes, in contrast to which your claim that no one died is both unproveable (absent pulling the alleged dead out of a hat) and unassailable. Unproveable not in an empirical sense, but in a goddamn common sense way. Yes we could dig up bodies, and let you conduct your own thorough examination until you’re satisfied, but a.)who the hell in their right mind is going to allow that and b.)would you really want to? (If you would, I’m not at all certain that’s a good thing.)
So again, short an actual corpse in front of you and all the other verification you’d require to prove to a certainty that Bill Wolff is dead as a doornail, what will suffice? Is there anything that would change your mind?
There is the possibility that you’re right and no one died, it’s true, but despite outward appearance that is not actually a risky position to take, at least in the sense of having to defend it. Yes, you risk some public ridicule, but assuming that doesn’t bother you then you’re golden. No one can ever prove you wrong because who would dare disrespect their own loved ones to do so? (Or, I suppose, because there is no body, but then the same things would apply anyway so what’s the difference?)
If someone I love dies and you claim they didn’t, do you honestly think I’m going to waste a second of my time proving you wrong? I will not. At most I will be repulsed by your behavior, then I’ll go back to grieving.
So, I cannot prove that you’re wrong when you allege no one died. I believe you are wrong, however. And I believe Bill’s wife could prove you wrong, but there’s no chance she will, nor should she. We should not set a precedent of displaying our dead for public view purely for the satisfaction of curious minds. I’m as curious as anyone but where would it stop?
If you’re right, then Bill’s wife is a liar, and thus would not deserve even what respect I’m trying to afford her when speaking of her here, much less the respect a widow deserves.
If you’re right then I’m only 2 degrees seperated from a genuine, dyed-in-the-wool Crisis Actor who faked his own death, which would certainly be the closest relationship I could claim to any terrorist event, ever. (I’ve met Mike Tyson on an airplane, but he’s so far failed to go postal. I’m staying tuned, though.)
If you’re right then Bill was just biding his time, all those years, coaching little league and whatnot, just wating for a call, I guess. (Because, and I can’t stress this enough: he was an actual person.) “Heya Bill, time for your big scene buddy!” Sure, why not. Bill left his life behind, took off to Vegas, and pretended to die, because reasons. Or maybe he was a spy his whole life, secretly. You tell me.
But if you’re wrong you’ve insulted at least one family very deeply. If you’re wrong then you’ve basically trivialized their suffering. You’re calling them all liars if you’re wrong, not just his wife. Everyone who knew him. If you’re wrong then the man didn’t up and decide to fake his death for whatever reasons. If you’re wrong the poor sonafabitch was murdered while on vacation with his wife. If you’re wrong you run a significant risk of driving people away from the truth-seeking business, and into the “how do i distance myself from such assholes as quickly as possible” business.
Everything I’ve said is true to the best of my knowledge. I’m happy to answer any questions. I hope I have not given the impression that I’m accusing you of bad intent. I assume your intent is to get to the truth. MY intent is to point out that the position you’re taking is in some ways… let’s call it unfair, for the reasons I stated.
