Media Completely Ignores New FBI Info Suggesting Paddock Was a Vegas Arms Dealer
Why the media blackout?
Conspiracy: Because he was an arms dealer … They don’t want folk to push for gun control laws?
FBI Confirm Las Vegas Shooter Was Arms Dealer – Media Blackout
The FBI has released new details about their investigation into the Las Vegas shooting, confirming that suspect Stephen Paddock was a registered arms dealer with ties to the CIA.
In a u-turn from the original claim that Paddock was a “lone wolf” shooter who transported a huge arsenal of guns, ammunition, and supplies to his 32nd floor hotel room at the Mandalay Bay – the FBI are now saying that Paddock was a known arms dealer with ties to US government intelligence agencies.
Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: While the surveillance footage from Paddock’s stay at the hotel has yet to be released, the newly unsealed court documents are finally giving some insight into his conduct in the months leading up to the shooting on Oct. 1.
An email exchange from firstname.lastname@example.org, a Microsoft account FBI agents claimed was used by Paddock, was included in an affidavit reported by NPR. The date was July 6, 2017—about three months before the shooting—and while the FBI noted that it is unclear who is behind email@example.com, the email account Paddock was contacting, the information included is significant.
In the first message, Paddock claimed that the recipient would have the opportunity to try out the weapons before they purchased them. He then wrote “We have huge selection,” indicating that he was not working alone, and he said he was located “in the Las Vegas area.”
While Paddock did live in Mesquite, Nevada, and reports claimed that he was a retired man living with his girlfriend, he made trips to Las Vegas often to gamble, and those who knew him described him as “low key and relaxed, a good guy.” His past included jobs with the IRS and the Department of Defense.
However, the email exchanges released by the FBI indicate that Paddock was presenting himself as some sort of arms dealer, sending an email that said, “for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.”
The email address Paddock was contacting responded and said, “we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try,” which as the report noted, left investigators wondering if Paddock was sending test emails to another account he owned, or if he was contacting another dealer or a customer.
Federal agents were granted warrants to search Paddock’s Facebook, Instagram and Amazon accounts, along with a locked phone that was found in the hotel room. These details are the first that have been released from Paddock’s online communications, and the documents also include significant details about what the FBI has learned about Paddock’s girlfriend.
Within hours of the time police named Stephen Paddock as the suspect in the shooting, his girlfriend Marilou Danley was also named publicly. Authorities claimed she was visiting family in the Philippines, and they ultimately determined that she was not complicit in the massacre.
In addition to reports claiming that Danley told investigators that her fingerprints may be on some of the bullets stored in Paddock’s home—and they were—the report from NPR also noted that the timeline of Danley’s Facebook account suggests that she knew Paddock was involved in something.
After the first reports of gunfire happened at 10:08 p.m. on Oct. 1, Danley’s Facebook account was set to private at 12:38 a.m. and then deleted entirely at 2:46 a.m. But it was not until 3:30 a.m. that Paddock’s name was publicly released as the suspect in the shooting.
There are a number of questions remaining about how the shooting unfolded, and as The Free Thought Project reported last week, MGM Resorts International is now claiming that the hotel staff at Mandalay Bay had at least 10 interactions with Paddock in the days before the shooting.
A spokesperson for MGM told The Las Vegas Review-Journal that the interactions on Oct. 1 consisted of a room service delivery and a visit from housekeeping, and even though members of the hotel staff are trained to report any suspicious activity, they did not find any reason to do so when interacting with Paddock.
“Mandalay Bay staff, room service and housekeeping had contact with Paddock or entered his suite more than 10 times over the course of his stay, including the three days leading up to October 1. There were numerous interactions with Stephen Paddock every day at the resort, including a room service delivery and a call with housekeeping on October 1, all of which were normal in nature.”
Mandalay Bay Security: Jesus Campos Does Not Exist
Mandalay Bay staff have gone on the record claiming that Jesus Campos – the security guard who allegedly rung the alarm on Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock – does not actually exist.
Investigative reporter Jake Morphonois recently stayed at the Mandalay Bay hotel where he met with various hotel security and maintenance staffers who told him that Jesus Campos never worked at the hotel.
Intellihub.com reports: Morphonios claims his sources maintain that there were less than 20 security guards on the payroll around the time of the shooting, all of whom know each other.
“They security guards don’t know who Jesus Campos is,” Morphonios explained. “They have no idea who this guy is, that we are being told was a Mandalay Bay security guard that went to the rescue.”
Morphonios also claims to have interviewed someone who was working in the camera control room on the night of the shooting who Morphonios says is still “terrified” after seeing what actually occurred.
“They wouldn’t even tell me what they saw,” he said. “They just told me that what they saw has put them in fear.”
Astonishingly, all of this dovetails with information obtained in late October by investigative reporter Laura Loomer which shows that Jesus Campos was not listed in the hotel’s employee database.
However, while all of this was questioned at the time, it was hard to put two and two together to form a solid theory, one that suggests both Campos and Schuck were either undercover F.B.I. agents assigned to mitigate a credible threat known to the agency at the time or were agency actors doctored up by counter intelligence expert and F.B.I. Special Agent in Charge of the Oct. 1 massacre Aaron Rouse.
Additionally, Crowdsource the Truth’s Jason Goodman interviewed a Mandalay Bay security guard assigned to the 32nd-floor on Nov. 11, 2017, who told him that he did not know Campos either.
The security guard told Goodman that he has “no idea” if the floor was shot up or not and answered “no” when asked if he knew or had even seen Campos.
Campos was reportedly shot in the leg by Paddock while investigating a ‘door alarm’ on the 32nd-floor just moments before Paddock opened fire onto concertgoers who were attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on that dreadful night.
Is it possible Jesus Campos and Steve Schuck were running and undercover F.B.I. operation on the night of the Las Vegas shooting or were they an F.B.I. fabricated cover story to hide the truth?
List of Significant Info Pulled from Paddock docs. Vegas Shooting
After reading the 300+ pages of affidavits, as well as going over comments on here, I figured it may be helpful to have a list of info all in one place. I tried to keep the stuff we already knew off the list (wire transfer, player’s club card, etc.). I did include the extras I had on the apartment complex which is not in the affidavits.
Here you go:
- Paddock’s email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, was associated with a previously owned apartment building located in Mesquite, TX. The unknown correspondent (possibly Paddock), email@example.com, also appears to be linked to the building.
- Paddock purchased Central Park Apartments (CPA) located at 4804 Via Ventura in 2004 for approx. $8 million. The building was sold for a loss in 2012 for $5-6 million. This explains the origin of the email addresses listed above.
- Despite the fact CPA was sold in 2012, both email addresses were still active and in use 5 years later.
- Ownership records for CPA are registered to a HOUSE in Henderson, NV solely owned by someone named Connie (aka Kay) McCain. It is not known how she is related to Paddock or CPA. But, it’s possible she also had an email address associated with the complex. Records can be seen here: http://www.dallascad.org/AcctHistory.aspx?ID=381527200A0020000
- On July 6, 2017 the following correspondence took place between firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com:CP1: try an ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area.CP4804: we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to tryCP1: for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with 100s of ammunition
- Paddock purchased a substantial amount of firearms and accessories out of state or online.
- MariLou Danley’s email address was firstname.lastname@example.org. Both email addresses were registered to Microsoft (live.com).
- Danley “spontaneously” admitted her fingerprints would be on the ammunition USED DURING THE ATTACK. Her DNA was also collected.
- Found in the hotel suite were: range finding devices, suitcases pre-loaded with high capacity ammo, a set of body armor, an apparent homemade gas mask and glass cutters.
- Paddock had at least one pre-paid cell phone (in the room). They found three phones total: two which were unlocked and contained nothing of note. The third was locked.
- Paddock’s Instagram account: stephenpaddock47. Danley appeared to have FOUR: Mariloudanley, Mariloudanleyy, Mariloudanleypaddock and marilou.danley.
- Danley’s F/B page (marilou.danley) settings were altered at 12:30am on October 2. She deleted it at 2:46am. Apparently, Paddock’s name was not released to the public for another hour. Which means, Danley most likely knew Paddock was involved in one way or another.
- Paddock purchased an EOTech 512.A65 Tactical Holographic firearm accessory on Amazon on September 7, 2017.
We are once again forgetting about Las Vegas – Mega Scoop on investigation ignored by main stream media. He was an arms dealer…
Recently reported on NPR, an explosive news piece on emails exchanged between the shooter Paddock and another one of his email aliases. Who the fuck was he talking too? Was it a FBI sting gone wrong.
And I quote verbatim from this NPR article
“One affidavit includes email exchanges between email@example.com, a Microsoft account that FBI authorities believe belonged to Paddock, and firstname.lastname@example.org. (It is unclear if the FBI knows who is responsible for the latter account.) The messages were sent on July 6, 2017,
The affidavit reads:
“…[email@example.com] sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org which read, ‘try an ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area,’ Later the day, an email was received back from email@example.com to [firstname.lastname@example.org] that read, ‘we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try.’ And lastly, [email@example.com sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that read, ‘for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.’ Investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack that occurred at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.”

WTF is going on?
The fact that this mass shooting – the worst in US history – is *not* being politicized up to high heaven is the spookiest thing about it.
It was pretty obvious from the very start that he was an arms dealer.
He had a shitload of money but never had a job that would have paid him that much.
-He worked for the postal service or some other small job 20 years ago for a few years then had millions of dollars to spend on real estate, planes, and guns.
He was a pilot and his plane is currently owned by a known CIA front company.
-exactly what it says. His plane was sold off to people known to be running guns.
His family members were all criminals.
-dad was wanted by the feds, he grew up on the run with him.
-his dad is one of about 20 people to commit crimes with an actual machine gun in the US.
-brothers are both convicted felons
He knew how to buy guns, but not how to use them.
-all of his guns were either Daniel Defense (the stocks are a giveaway) with Scopes and bipods or BCM with bump stocks and Eotechs, subject to a recall due to poi shift.
-The “note” on the nightstand was a ballistic chart for the DAD rifles, and yet his first rounds missed his target. The first ones hit were directly between him and the singer on stage indicating that he tried to shoot him, but missed due to not knowing what he was doing.
-the BCM rifles were all carbine length gas system guns and that combined with the bump stocks caused them to fire too fast and override the bolt, jamming the guns when he got excited.
-The Surefire 100 round magazines used in the attack (there were dozens, I counted 17 still stacked neatly and unused in one of the photos) are very expensive but offer very little benefit to actual shooters as a mag change lasts all of 2 seconds. He spent money he didn’t have to because he didn’t know any better.
He was a mall ninja, but not a gun guy, but he sure knew how to spend money. Even without the ammunition, he spent at least $100,000 on this attack.
All of this points to one type of person, someone who buys guns but rarely uses them. He knew brand names, but not how to set them up. He sold guns.
Media Completely Ignores New FBI Info Suggesting Paddock Was a Vegas Arms Dealer
The-Juggernaut: I wonder if it will ever reach mainstream. I have friends who refused to believe anything OTHER than one crazy old guy pulled off tactical precision gunfire into a crowd
New details have been released from the FBI’s investigation into the Las Vegas Shooting, and the information from suspect Stephen Paddock’s email account in the months leading up to the shooting is giving new insight into why he may have been hoarding two dozen guns in his hotel room.
The deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history was blamed on one man within hours, and the FBI has consistently claimed that Paddock was a “lone wolf” shooter who intentionally transported an arsenal of guns, ammunition, and supplies to his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, and then unleashed barrage of gunfire from the bedroom window that killed 58 people and injured more than 500.
If you listen to his brother’s drive-way rant, I forget if it was the 1st or 2nd, he stops just short of saying “Stephen was an arm—-“ and then he does jive about using a military expression. Most people believe his statement was going to be “Stephen was an arms deal, alright ?”.
There’s something going on with the Saudis here, too. They own the floors that Paddock was shooting from, and shortly after this happened there was a large purge of the royal family in Saudi Arabia. They’re also the biggest state sponsor of terrorism (not Iran), with [Britain](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Yamamah_arms_deal) being their primary supplier of arms for decades.
Breaking: Unsealed search warrant application shows the Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was a fucking Arms Dealer! Why is no one talking about this? The MSM is not going to report on this.
OishiLover75: See page 7, paragraph 15
“Target Account 1” was determined to be Paddock’s account.
He was using that account as a dead drop. Likely communicating in drafts. No electronic cross-service transmission and google unlikely archives drafts. Give everyone access to the account , communicate in the drafts folder. Unless account is being watched it likely can’t be sniffed.
But I wonder why this, and why now? Why would an arms dealer do a transfer in a hotel, with hundreds of cameras, in one of the most filmed cities in the world? The fact they are releasing it now screams “Throw the public off of the real trail and appease them”. Something is making me feel that “the arms dealer” is too convenient.
Stephen Paddock was a weapons dealer, does this mean 4Chan Anon was right?
**Submission Statement**: Now that we know from the newly released Stephen Paddock warrant Page 7, that he may have been a weapons dealer. Does that Mean 4Chan anon was right about the ISIS weapons dealing scenario?
According to [this NYT article](https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/01/12/us/las-vegas-attack-gunman-paddock.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage), the FBI thinks Paddock controlled both the sending and receiving email accounts on those communications, but that someone else may have been using one (like his “girlfriend”).
>The F.B.I. also discovered emails between two accounts connected to Mr. Paddock. One from early July indicated that Mr. Paddock had begun taking steps to carry out the attack, referring to a “bump stock,” an attachment that enables a semiautomatic rifle to fire faster.
>In an email Mr. Paddock sent on July 6 to an account that also may have belonged to him, he wrote: “try an ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area.” Another email sent between the accounts read, “for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.” By “ar,” Mr. Paddock appeared to be referring to rifles.
>The affidavit later adds that “investigators have been unable to figure out why Stephen Paddock would be exchanging messages related to weapons that were used in the attack between two of his email accounts,” and that it was possible that someone else was controlling one of the accounts. If that was the case, the investigator said, the F.B.I. needed to identify that person. Receiving a search warrant for that account “will lead investigators to determine the full scope of Stephen Paddock’s plan,” an F.B.I agent wrote to the judge.

Submission Statement: Today the court unsealed over 300 pages relating to the October 1 massacre. Another post only linked to the main affidavit but this source includes the entire document dump.
While investigators obtained a DNA buccal swab sample from Danley, she spontaneously stated that her fingerprints would likely be found on Paddock’s ammunition because she occasionally participated in loading magazines.
“As the investigation progressed, investigators learned that Paddock planned the attack meticulously and took many methodical steps to avoid detection of his plot and to thwart the eventual law enforcement investigation that would follow. These steps include the apparent destruction and/or concealment of digital storage media and the use of anonymously attributed communications devices.”

NYT and LA Times (as well as others) falsely reporting on Paddock warrant
The warrant clearly states that Target Account 1 is Paddock and he is the seller, offering a wide selection and recommending a bump stock for a thrill. There’s no evidence he was emailing himself.
But the NYT and LA Times as well as others are running with the story that he was the one receiving those texts. Completely false and blatantly misleading.
Judge unseals search warrant for Paddock after Las Vegas shooting
Submission statement: A judge has unsealed a search warrant for Paddock after the Las Vegas shooting. Page 7 has a few emails that he sent about selling guns.
Page 7 seems like the smoking gun. He was an arms dealer, for who is the next question. Why hasn’t the FBI or LVPD mentioned this?? The investigation has literally disappeared.
>Additionally, on July 6, 2017, Target Account 1 (paddocks email) sent an email to email@example.com which read, “try an ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area.”
>Later that day, an email was received back from firstname.lastname@example.org to Target Account 1 that read, “we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try.” And lastly, Target Account 1 later sent an email to email@example.com that read, “for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine”
This is amazing. So who is mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?
His plan was to sell [these 3 young women] a bunch of guns and then he somehow forgot about that and started firing into the crowd. The fact that he was able to fire off so many shots without doing any damage to the myriad of infrastructure in the line of fire hints that he was probably the most accurate Russian-trained shooter at distance with an automatic assault rifle that has ever existed. Luckily, [new gun legislation is being pursued](https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/after-las-vegas-gun-control-group-seizing-moment-to-push-for-tighter-regulations/2017/10/16/ee4a5472-b291-11e7-a908-a3470754bbb9_story.html) which would have prevented this horrific tragedy.
Stephen Paddock had AT LEAST 7 cell phones or mobile devices
Yep, a 64 year old man had 7 cell phones…Pilots licence , 2 private planes..
Was he a drug kingpin or decent weight dealer and realised the Feds were onto him so took this way out?
GhostDog999: Running guns and drugs for the cartels and the CIA, most likely. Maybe even a government informant who was running guns for the cartel and feeding info to the CIA and other government agencies. Campos drove straight to Mexico after being shot in the leg…..back to the cartel.
Just think about it. The cartel can have people in casinos—Campos—and setup displays for possible weapons buyers in the luxury hotel suites at the casinos. Paddock transports the guns and possibly drugs throughout the country via his private plane and air hangers. Paddock had houses all over the country—empty houses.
standard_armadillo: I think he was a gun runner for .gov. who was caught in the crosshatches and took one for the team.
JoeBlowgun: I hear he had a massive bet on Trump winning the presidency and then the casino refused to pay out because of Russia.
ignoremsmedia: He was senile and just kept buying stuff, obviously bewildered.
… or he was a spook running a gun tupperware party in his hotel room for gangsters.
Interesting new development RE: LV shooting victims
Yes, Intellihub spoke with the same source and confirmed this yesterday. The only reason they would discard the bullets is to hide the evidence etc… It looks like @LVMPD and @FBI will have some explaining to do… This would be a good line of questioning for your next vid.. 🙂
— Intellihub (@intellihubnews) January 10, 2018
Laura Loomer is back in Vegas and has already posted a few breaking stories in the last 48 hours but this one is pretty crazy. A medical source in Las Vegas tells Laura Loomer that on the night of the Las Vegas Shooting, trauma surgeons in Las Vegas hospitals were “ordered” to discard of all bullets and fragments recovered from victim’s bodies despite hospital “chain of custody” protocols.
