Skeptic Chuck Baldwin has analyzed the Las Vegas massacre and come up with a number of challenges to the story as it has been told so far.
The seven questions below are asked by Baldwin and then elaborated upon in the original article.
Following the skeptic’s eye view of the story, he offers the reader a theory about the incident.
Excerpts from Lew Rockwell
1. Where are the hundreds or thousands of spent cartridges on Stephen Paddock’s hotel floor?
2. Why do so many witnesses who were at the scene report shooters in so many different locations?
3. Why do so many police officers who were at the scene report shooters in so many different locations?
4. Where did the shots come from that went through the front doors at the Bellagio Hotel Casino (and other casinos)?
5. Where is the Ruger bolt-action .308 caliber rifle that Paddock purchased only a few hours before the shootings?
6. Why would Paddock need to break out two windows, including in the suite and in the adjoining room?
7. Why did the CEO and part owner of the Mandalay Bay Hotel Casino sell off his portion of the holdings in the hotel over a couple month period just before the shootings?
The smell is bad when you consider that there there are so many things that don’t add up about the alleged shootings.
Baldwin finishes up with this conspiracy theory, which makes sense to me:
If there was more than one shooter, the only thing that makes sense to me is that it had to be a professional dark ops government action. “Whose government?” you ask. There are only three governments that have the resources to successfully pull off a shooting of this magnitude and completely escape detection inside the continental United States—only three: America’s CIA, British MI6, and the Israeli Mossad. That’s it. Plus, the presence of “spy cameras” in Paddock’s room strongly indicates the presence of spooks. This is almost standard procedure for covert ops and suggests a degree of sophistication in this operation that I cannot imagine Stephen Paddock would have. Forget ISIS and all that claptrap. If there were multiple shooters (of which all but one have completely disappeared, and no one in law enforcement is even looking for them), it could only be carried out by one of—or a consortium of—these three governments.
I realize that it is extremely difficult (and uncomfortable) for people to accept the possibility that elements within our own government could be capable of such an atrocity as the shootings in Las Vegas. But any government that has no qualms about murdering tens of millions of unborn babies; any government that has no qualms about murdering hundreds of thousands of innocent people around the world in unprovoked, preemptive drone attacks, missile attacks, bombings, assassinations, and illegal dark operations; and any government that would callously send young Americans into these battlefield meat grinders to fight and die for the sake of wars for profit, nation-building, and political power-brokering is capable of ANYTHING.
No, this doesn’t mean that your congressman or senators (or mine) or the President of the United States or even the Pentagon knows about it—although any one or several of them MIGHT. But it does mean that there is an illegal nefarious dark side of government that surreptitiously carries out the most evil and unspeakable acts of violence against the most helpless and innocent of people ALL OF THE TIME. To monsters this wicked and vile, the lives of 58 innocents in Las Vegas is just another day at the office.
When the American people can come to grips with the distinct possibility of what I am saying, then we can have an intelligent conversation about what to do about it. But until people (including local police officials) are willing to entertain this potentiality, any conversation on the subject is moot. And dismissing what this author is saying as being nothing but a nutty conspiracy theory only ensures that, if there are such people behind these kinds of mass shootings, we will never be able to get to the crux of it, and it will only continue—which is what is happening, isn’t it?
But it should be obvious WHY a dark side of government would want to do such things. As I’ve already noted, the ultimate goal of America-haters is our disarmament. And since no one in law enforcement, government, or the media is willing to delve into this possibility, these kinds of shootings only worsen over time. The next shooting (and there will be another one) will be worse than Las Vegas. They will not stop until America is disarmed OR until the American people awaken to what is happening and demand that the light of truth start shining on the dark forces behind these atrocities.
Of course, the other thing these mass shootings accomplish is to put America deeper and deeper into a cage. You can bet that from now on getting into a Las Vegas hotel casino will be like boarding a commercial airliner—or worse. Larger cities across America will enact stricter and stricter security measures in more and more places, which means our liberties will go down the toilet even faster. Plus, don’t forget that numerous insider security peddlers, such as former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security under President G.W. Bush (and co-author of the Patriot Act) Michael Chertoff, are going to make billions of dollars promoting the security industry.
The more we are told about the Las Vegas shootings, the less believable it is.
Given the utter apathy of the national news media for truthful investigative reporting, and given the gullibility of so many Americans to swallow the mindless propaganda from the national news media, and given the unwillingness of local law enforcement agencies to challenge the narratives from the federal government, I guess Stephen Paddock is destined to go down in history alongside Lee Harvey Oswald as the “lone shooter” in one of the worst killings in America. And we all KNOW that Oswald acted alone, don’t we?
P.S. One more time, let me remind readers about our book on why no one, especially Christians, should allow themselves to be disarmed—and specifically why they should never allow their semi-automatic rifles to be taken away from them.
The Las Vegas shootings have only invigorated the gun-grabbers (and spineless jellyfish) in government to pass additional gun control laws. And, sadly, a host of pastors and churches are telling their congregations that Christians are obligated to surrender their firearms should civil government require them to do so. Furthermore, many are saying that banning semi-automatic rifles is “reasonable” and is not actually disarming us. They could not be more WRONG. Plus, such teaching is an egregious violation of the Word of God.
