A Disarming Vegas Strip-Tease
"His motive is unknown."
"On the night of October 1, 2017, a gunman opened fire on a large crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada, leaving 58 people dead and 489 injured. Between 10:05 and 10:15 p.m. PDT, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada, fired hundreds of rifle rounds from his suite on the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel. About an hour after Paddock fired his last shot, he was found dead in his room from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His motive is unknown. The incident is the deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual in the United States. The crime reignited the debate about gun laws in the U.S., with attention focused on bump firing, a technique Paddock used to allow his semi-automatic rifles to fire at a rate similar to that of a fully automatic weapon."
Means, Motive, & Opportunity Matter
"His motive is unknown." is not a sign that the murder mystery is going to be solved anytime soon. Good thing this guy is claimed to have conveniently killed himself or there would have had to have been a trial of some kind. The government on the other hand, has means, motive and opportunity to pull off endless governmentally scripted and produced military style drills that are presented to the public as real News events. In fact this governmental modus operandi has plenty of historical precedence. The motive is a simple one, we have to believe we need to keep paying taxes. We have to have faith in governmental authority. We are supposed to go along with all the needless laws, taxes, fees, fines and jail time without thought, like good wage slave/citizens. We are supposed to get caught up in false political debates like gun control and not notice that the government relies on these kinds of social divisions to maintain its needless existence and form. Governments might restrict guns or not, government might deploy more body scanners and metal detectors into public spaces, or not, no matter what choice is made or is not made, government will continue to grow like cancer.
A Meme is Born: A False Flag But Not A Hoax
We are supposed to believe people really died despite the obvious pattern of FEMA like drilled behavior. This new meme seems to be concocted to attempt to do some damage control for what has become an obvious and clear pattern of deceptive and theatrical governmental behavior.
A Feedback Frenzy: Are lessons being learned?
It almost seems like this new meme was faxed around to various alt media types. If I were paranoid I might think something was up.
Telephone game spread hearsay and images on screens are no substitute for evidence that can actually be examined. What are supposed to be highly emotional News interviews with victims and victims' families are designed to be a nothing but emotional propaganda artifacts with the purpose of shaping public opinion and effecting new forms of human behavior.
"Even people presenting evidence of a hoax (fake pictures, crisis actors) are quick to say that they think people really died."
"PRACTICING LIKE WE PLAY: EXAMINING HOMELAND SECURITY EXERCISES"
"Evaluation: As with any exercise, the evaluation portion is every bit as important as the conduct of the exercise itself."
"This is the reason we conduct exercises, is to expose our short comings in a simulated environment as opposed to during a real event. The evaluation of all of the ‘‘moving parts’’ of T–3 was a huge logistical challenge. Due to the scope of the exercise, every county, every hospital, every venue had ‘‘data collectors’’ on site to capture the actions of the participants in response to the events presented by the exercise scenario. These observations were collected, analyzed and compared against the existing plans, policies and procedures of the participants. Again, running parallel with the federal effort, New Jersey developed an after-action report and a specific improvement action plan which is being implemented at this time.
Practice Like We Play:
Is government "evolving"?
"I would like to hear from our witnesses on how TOPOFF exer- cises are coordinated across federal agencies and with the military, as well as with the state and local governments. This committee continues to be concerned about the process of evaluating previous TOPOFF exercises and the dissemination of lessons learned."
"In the past, DHS has told us they have been hesitant to provide a formal evaluation of TOPOFF exercises because of the need to protect sensitive information about efforts to thwart terrorist activities. While we clearly understand the need to protect sensitive information, after-action reports outlining lessons learned need to be circulated as widely as possible."
"The federal government has specified that the Department of Homeland Security should also serve as a resource for state, local and federal agencies as they conduct and evaluate exercises at the regional, state and local levels. I look forward to hearing from Mr. Schrader as he discusses in detail how this goal is being accom- plished and how long it will take to fully implement the program."
Live Action Role Playing Theater A Hearsay Relay
Innocent witnesses can get caught up in scripted and contrived live action role playing events, sponsored by governmental authority. An event like the recent Vegas "shooting" would involve not only those in on it, but those who have no idea the incident is nothing but a hyper-realistic, Hollywood style, military, training drill. Honest dupes would be in position to witness and to relay what they thought were real events. This would add another layer of face saving realism to the event.
Even if we are presented with Oscar caliber acting, we should not let effective emotional manipulation influence our judgment. The point of the emotional appeal is to get us to react emotionally and not logically. The problem, reaction, solution, technique requires that the public reacts to News without logic and critical thought.
Thank You For You Service & For Trying To Scare Us All Into Further Submission To Even More Layers of Needless Governmental Authority
"Here we have an ex military man explaining his role and the current state of affairs as he knew it as of that time."
This "witness" does not appear to be an innocent by standing dupe, instead he appears to be part of the scripted show. He appears to be playing his part by reciting his (lies) lines.

"This is beyond a shadow of a doubt the most compelling piece of evidence yet for ex military mercs on the scene of the crime, with knowledge that NOBODY outside of the law would know. Maybe not even the law themselves would know. Here we have an ex military man explaining his role and the current state of affairs as he knew it as of that time. Here he lets slip the location, the town, where the shooter lived, but nobody knew this information. He said he got his info from the TV but nobody in the media reports prior to this time had reported his name, location, nothing. All they knew was he was a local man. Local being 77 miles away, whats the chances this guy knew his exact location?" source: Ranty!
Friday October 13, 2017 update: Youtube suspends Ranty!:
"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....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."
False Flag Fakery Is An Ancient Art Form
Decades and even centuries of bull shit coated, maze like layers and layers of conspiracy nonsense will lead the so-called "truth seeker" endlessly astray. You are not supposed to consider the idea that the whole thing was nothing but a Hollywood style, multimedia hoax and that the only victim was the truth. We are supposed to buy into either official story or endless speculative conspiracy theories. We are not supposed to consider anything but those two options. "Smartphones" put what is probably the most powerful library and educational tool that the world has ever had access to into the hands of the average western cultured person and most use this impressive achievement of real human ingenuity for little more than taking and posting endless streams of emoticon labeled selfies.
Government Wants Us Duck & Covering, Cowering & Genuflecting
Do you like the fact that our tax money is spent on things like false flags events?
Whether you believe we pay for real or simulated assassinations, do you think we should foot the bill for it all?
We're paying for our own imprisonment. We pay for all the extra layers of post 9/11 added security we are supposed to truly believe we need. Taxes are forced governmental religious tithing and is the means by which we fund our own mental and physical prisons, artificial nation state borders and other forms of modern day castle walls only exist to further treat us like herded animals rather than self actualized human beings. Before 9/11, for example, we need not fear airport gropings or x-ray radiation machinery. Before 9/11 a citizen of the United States could travel to Canada or Mexico with nothing but a state issued license. We foot the bill for the means by which we allow the system to dictate how we must serve it, as opposed to it logically being made to serve us.
Security has blossomed into an even more profitable industry, post 9/11.
The problem, reaction, solution, evolution, revolution can never end or government as we know it goes bye bye.
We have to have faith that we really need all the endless layers of ever generating governmental authority we simply do not need. We are supposed to fear the power of governmental might and we are supposed to be awed by what we think our tax money paid for. We are supposed to fear the beast we must keep paying taxes to.
Nation Building Takes Time
Our ancestors built this western civilization with their blood, sweat and tears. In fact we toil away paying taxes to the various layers of local, county, state, national and perhaps even international governments. Our hard earned money goes to building more spaces for the offices for the ever growing cancer that is government. Government exists as a commercial enterprise and is a corporate endeavor that does not serve us as much as we all serve it. Government, in all its various guises, is an impersonal and frankly dangerous, antihuman system that seeks to perpetuate and to grow itself.
In many ways we all are responsible in one way or another for the existence and the maintenance of this monstrous systematized beast.
Today Washington D.C. is now a modern city filled with sky scraping glory.
"Most of what land existed of the National Mall back then was very flat and low, and typically used for grazing animals."
"The truth is, there was a lot of variation to DC’s original landscape, and it helped L’Enfant determine the appropriate sites for important buildings. The top of Jenkins Hill was designated as the site of the Capitol Building and a steep bluff adjacent to the Tiber River was chosen as the site of the White House. The Potomac River was a lot wider than it currently is, and the current locations of the Lincoln Memorial and Jefferson Memorial were in the middle of the river when L’Enfant arrived. Most of what land existed of the National Mall back then was very flat and low, and typically used for grazing animals."

Robert Plant - Bones of Saints source: Robert Plant
Rollin' Bones In Order To Influence What's Inside Human Skulls
"But the direct precursors of today’s dice were bone: the ankle bones of hoofed animals, such as sheep and oxen. These bones -later called astragali by theGreeks- were chosen because they are roughly cube-shaped, with two rounded sides that couldn’t be landed on, and four flat ones that could. Which side would be facing up after a toss, or a series of tosses, was as much a gamble to our ancestors as it is to us today. The first dice throwers weren’t gamers, though -they were religious shamans who used astragali (as well as sticks, rocks, or even animal entrails) for divination, the practice of telling the future by interpreting signs from the gods. How did these early dice make their way from the shaman to the layman? According to David Schwartz in Roll the Bones: The History of Gambling:
The line between divination and gambling is blurred. One hunter, for example, might say to another, “If the bones land short side up, we will search for game to the south; if not, we look north,” thus using the astragali to plumb the future. But after the hunt, the hunters might cast bones to determine who would go home with the most desirable cuts."
"They want you to be afraid you will be sprayed with hollow point bullets by your own government, though I personally think that threat is hollow"
I usually do not link to Miles Mathis, but with the exception of his photo analysis at the start of this article, I'd say he is (basically) right on the money: Las Vegas Hoax.
"OK, let's move on. Josh has shown you that many planted stations on youtube are telling us people were killed, even though this was a false flag. But there is no evidence of that. All evidence is in the opposite direction: no one was killed and this was all staged. Video shows flashes from a lower (4th?) floor, which some are using as evidence of multiple shooters, but again that is a jump to a conclusion. What we have in video and audio is evidence of flashes and sounds of gunfire, but that is not the same as evidence of real gunshots. Arms experts have pointed out that in audio from the concert floor, we do not hear any whizzing of bullets or sounds of hits. Hits would be quite loud locally, either hitting bodies or hitting the ground. There is none of that, indicating the sound of shots is on the speakers, not live. And the flashes are proof of nothing. You can create those flashes without real bullets being shot, you know. You can see this in any one of thousands of Hollywood movies."
"On the way out, I want to comment on a couple of “Truthers” at youtube spreading lies. The first is Kevin Barrett, using “ex-CIA” phony Robert Steele to promote the idea people were “shredded by hollow-point bullets in a massacre”. To start with, there is no such thing as ex-CIA. Once CIA, always CIA, so I don't know why anyone trusts these guys. If I were ex-CIA, would you trust me? No, so why trust this guy? Notice that in the first moments of the interview, Steele takes the existence of ISIS as a given. That is one of the desiderata of his analysis: that you believe ISIS exists. It doesn't. Or, it exists exactly like Osama bin Laden existed. There were and are real people getting their pictures taken and doing things. They aren't SIMs or CGI. But they aren't terrorists as you are told. Osama was a rich Saudi working for us mainly as an actor, and the ISIS goons are the same. They are a group of actors who look Middle-Eastern working for worldwide intelligence. They are our created enemies right now."
"What about his ex-partner Jim Fetzer? Same deal. Fetzer and Barrett fall together. Notice that in Fetzer's hour-long video, his buddy Dean Ryan compares Las Vegas to the Kennedy Assasination before the two-minute mark, selling them both as real."
"Same for Mike Adams, who has popped up as a prominent voice in this one after a long silence on such matters. Remember, he took down his Boston Marathon analysis, but now he is back. I guess they called him up and asked him to get involved. He is also selling the idea of multiple shooters. He does a scientific-looking acoustic analysis, allegedly showing us proof of two shooters. I say “scientific- looking” because it is fake science. All he proves is that there are two separate audio tracks on the tape, but he does nothing to prove the sounds are live and not recorded. Remember, there were huge speakers in the vicinity: this was a concert in progress. But even if the sounds are live and not recorded, that also does not prove anything, as I noted above. Sounds do not mean real bullets, since the sounds could have been created with blanks or in several other ways. Notice that not once does Adams admit that possibility exists, despite supposedly being an expert on the subject."
"Same for Alex Jones, who—it appears—has also been tapped by Intel to promote the multiple- shooters/ISIS-is-real angle on this, while confirming other parts of it as a false flag. Jones/Adams/Barrett/Fetzer and many others are looking more alike every year, indicating they are all being promoted by the same faction."
"...the longer goal of all these similar hoaxes is the creation of fear. They have been doing that for centuries, as we have seen. It has accelerated recently, simply because they are trying to squelch a revolution. The best way to do that is to create even more fear. They want you to be afraid you will be sprayed with hollow point bullets by your own government, though I personally think that threat is hollow. Like these fake events, it is all a bluff. But since the bluff has always worked for them, I guess it doesn't much matter. They have been bluffing your parents and grandparents out of trillions of dollars for centuries, and it looks like they will continue to do it to you and your children."

100% Proof of a 2nd Shooter!!! source: pocketsofthefuture
By the way, this guy also wants those of us who lean towards the idea that nobody was actually murdered to "adapt" and self-censor.
(See the video "Avoid This Trap" below)
The Bre'r Rabbit Briar Patch Fallacy: We Can Choose Either The Official Story or The Official Conspiracy Story
Apparently we really should not consider other possibilities. At the very least we should keep our opinions to ourselves if we cannot choose from one of the two choices offered.
"Avoid this Trap!!!"
Apparently pocketsofthefuture can promote Alex Jones style cliche tabloid conspiracy memes, like second shooters, that most normal folk would consider just as crazy as saying that 9/11 was an inside job. He thinks that the rest of us "truther-types" should adapt to what he claims is a new governmental modus operandi and we should keep quiet about simulated victims and the idea that nobody really dies at these events, as normal people will the think us crazy and insane. He claims this is part of a governmental plan. Is he privy to a top secret governmental memo or something?
What's up with the concern trolling? I would think this is sort of how a shill would act were I inclined to be paranoid. I will not self censor. I think that if we go by all the video and interviews as evidence, the logical conclusion to lean towards is that the event was a staged governmental drill with no real deaths. That's all the evidence indicates to me. Anyone who thinks they can draw logical conclusions from News interviews and Youtube videos of what could easily be staged events, is not someone who has done much research into this subject. Speculation is not evidence. I also do not see any evidence that the government has changed its modus operandi at all, in fact I'd say it remains the same. Even this new online push that we should not mention simulated victims does not seem entirely new. Soon after the Sandyhook event-hoax-shooter drill took place in 2012, the media put the idea out there that the parents of the murdered children were receiving mocking threats from so-called "truthers'. And people have been warned away from sites like Cluesforum for years. Cluesforum is an excellent resource, and a great place to begin to learn about what they call a "vicsim" or simulated victim.
Stifling the freedom of thought and expression is not new:
All I see are versions of the same deceptive theme, we aren't supposed to look behind proverbial curtain, instead we are to pay all our attention to the seemingly dangerous, big and impossibly levitating, Black Kali head. That head, in this analogy, has a mouth full of human corpses.
Please note the view count on this video is far less than the one about a second shooter. Please note too the fallacious logic of using videos as evidence that an event is real. Even if we were physically present the event could still be staged. pocketsofthefuture would have us ignore all we have learned about how the government operates and the very real and demonstrable fact that hyper realistic drills are very real things we foot the bill for.
Avoid The Trap of Talking & Writing About Simulated Victims & Embrace & Promote Alex Jones Style Conspiracy Memes Instead:
Everyone knows that the conspiracy audience loves a good second shooter story and a maze like mound of endless tar baby "evidence" to get covered with and lost in. A mythology of conspiracy noise usually gets concocted to cover for the fact that the entire supposed real event was nothing but scripted theater. This also happens to create a profitable marketplace. There's a whole lot less money to be made by telling the truth as you see it; there's a lot less money to be made from selling the idea that there is no drama and that it is entirely possible that nobody really died. In other words, there is financial incentive to, at the very least, massage one's message to fit marketplace expectation.

Never Forget To Play the Victim Card!!!
Appealing Sob Stories
"An appeal to pity (also called argumentum ad misericordiam, the sob story, or the Galileo argument) is a fallacy in which someone tries to win support for an argument or idea by exploiting his or her opponent's feelings of pity or guilt. It is a specific kind of appeal to emotion."

Government Desperately Needs To Be Able To Keep Playing The Victim Card
The Simulated Victim Meme Would Seem To Be A Problem In This Context: The Idea That Nobody Died Is Dangerous To Government
The video below is set to play from 24:00, the part of the video where pocketsofthefuture mentions "crazy" Alex Jones. Consider pocket's seemingly hypocritical criticism in the context of his Alex Jones-like second (or true) shooter style video that got all the views, embedded above. He is selling the same kind of shit Alex Jones does. This guy is attempting to define what should be considered socially acceptable and what is not, based upon what he thinks the government is trying to do, and if we buy into his ideas, wouldn't we be hamstringing ourselves in a way that would only benefit the government? We would be playing into their hands, as they say?
The Victim card is a powerful emotional tool and one that the government cannot do without. The Alex Jones style gate-keeping, damage control seems to be obvious, these guys admit the event is contrived, and then continue down the well trodden fear based, dramatic, merry go round, Alex Jones like, conspiracy path that audiences love to be led down and around over and over util they mentally throw up. People love either eating up official narrative sold to them by trusted News source or they eat up officially offered tabloid conspiracy fare. In both cases the idea that the victims are real is maintained. These narratives lose their power if there are no victims. This is the motive for any damage control that might be being done on the part of governmental interests. I would think that we should continue to push the envelope to see if we can get more of these voices to at least admit the possibility that these events mights just be entirely scripted and completely fake, not such partially. I think the idea that we back off of the simulated victim idea a bad one that would be a step backwards that would clearly benefit the governmental based powers that be. By the way, I do not believe we are having any great effect on society, I just think we should try to capitalize on the minuscule effect we might be having.

This seems like a social experiment version of the Delphi Method. see: Delphi method - Wikipedia. Nothing like the tyranny of the supposed (or even imagined) majority.

Beware False Profits
If people think nobody really died you can't have an eternal conspiracy multimedia, money making, propaganda, blitzkrieg ride.
Governmental propaganda creates opportunity for multimedia profit. If there isn't the expected martyred victim, there is no reason to get emotionally engaged in the narrative, is there? Audiences seem to need to have the soap operatic tabloid story to get sucked into as they have long been conditioned to. Many people really do seem resistant to the idea that victims could be simulated and this position seems to be the less popular one. In my opinion there is a far larger audience for material that has layers of James Bond like conspiracy to it than there is for work that points to the illusory nature of the global theater most take to be too real.
A Riddle Wrapped In An Oliver Stoned Pretzel
Tabloid style conspiracy fare is not the same thing as cultural criticism. There is an audience for the former that has been long conditioned by the more tabloid elements of the yellow journal mainstream media to accept governmental and mafia and other kinds of conspiracies as at least somewhat legitimate, as long as people really died, that is. Those of us who think outside of these officially promoted boxes come across as babbling crackpots, and sound like insane homeless lost voices coming from unclean lips. Those of us who think a whole lot of those people are little more than role playing-dinner theater-like life-actors are considered to be crazy.
The Twin Fallacies of Hearsay & Moving Images On Screens
It's not that we can magically know that nobody was actually killed, or injured, of course, accidents do happen, stuntmen die on film sets and are essentially paid to get injured, for example. And yes military style operations would seem to allow for the sanctioned killing of innocent victims by way of espionage like tactic. This would seem to be a very real possibility and when we consider the pardon power of the Presidency and similar ideas like High Level Security Clearances and the like, we can see why the espionage explanation is appealing speculation, but speculation is all it is. And this speculation is clearly based on propaganda.
Films, books, fiction and nonfiction, News media reports, comic books and cartoons, and governmental claims have created a long accepted mythology regarding spying that most buy into, hook, line and sinker, without much critical thought as to the validity of all the underlying assumptions. Most assume all the Cold War espionage stories are as true as claimed. In any case hearsay and moving images, no matter how powerful, are no substitute for evidence you can actually examine. One would be quite unwise and insane to make decisions based upon the unverifiable claims of News media and governmental report, like the ones we get as a result of what seem to be nothing more than scripted terror drills.
It's About Control: Real Victims Could Mean Uncontrolled Public Relations Chaos
Simulated victims would seem to make more sense. Real victims mean real questions being asked by real people. The News media would either have to air those interviews or suppress them. In today's world of social media we would expect to see some of these victims or families of deceased victims asking obvious questions regarding all the contradictory parts of the official narrative. We wouldn't expect to see what appears to be a coordinated public relations tour.
Real victims and real families of true deceased victims would likely be online asking real questions and pointing out obvious inconsistencies and flaws with the official narrative. Media and governmental claims will go unchallenged as supposed suicided gunmen make for great scapegoated pasties. Of course, apparently trials can be scripted too, so it makes little difference which way governmental propaganda story goes.
What most take to be actual historical event seems to be little more than literal scripted live action theater.
Viewing Life Through A News Media Screen Can Be A Mentally Damaging Thing:
Mainstream Media Has Always Been The Primary Weapon of Governmental Propaganda
The governmentally sourced News media journalist is the real terrorist and the mainstream media communications grid is the real weapon of total mass destruction.
Make no mistake, the governmentally created internet and social media can be used to deliver more of the same.
Not all News producers are in on it and some must be put through a live action role playing simulation and would be duped into thinking what they have witnessed was real. Things tend to be controlled from the top down with limited need to know basis kind of organizational policies and National Security Clearances. Treason laws are real and so are all the National Security Laws. High level journalists who have access to CIA and FBI and other military and governmental sources would have to logically have security clearances. In this way everything can be compartmentalized.
Crisis Acting Hyper Realistic Hollywood Drills Are Real
Even if you were to witness what would appear to be an actual terrorist like event in real life, what you have witnessed might not be as real as you think. Nonetheless I do not think think a person who claims such a thing needs to be "in on it", or trying to be purposefully deceptive. I think we can all be emotionally manipulated into accepting things as real that perhaps we should not and I think we need to worry more about figuring out what we individually think and why rather than worrying about the proverbial mote in our brother's (or sister's) eye.
Believe Half of What You See and None of What You Hear:
The Journalist and Content Creator as Military Psychological Warfare Target
It seems to me that we might want to consider the idea that there are plenty of News journalists who lack the proper credentials to be in on the various psychological operational drills. Honest people who work in the various kinds of media might end up getting exposed to the psychological operation themselves. In fact I would wager that this demographic is more of a prime target for Military style psychological warfare than even the public is, as these people act as thought and behavior gurus and guides for their audiences. If the content creators truly believe in the ideas they are promoting, their respective audiences will surely respond in kind.
Heartfelt appeals by trusted sources, new media and old, are like magic spells to most and pay off in spades.
An honest emotional appeal will beat the crisis cast actor's phoned in performance every time.
Hyper reality FEMA crisis drills create very realistic experiences that unwitting witnesses could easily confuse for real.
Same Old FEMA Drill Song And Dance
"Manchester, England is the latest victim of terrorism’s barbarism. A suicide bomber hid outside an Ariana Grande concert and detonated an explosive filled with nails as people were leaving. This horrific account commanded the world’s attention, as any attack on women and children is additionally heinous, let alone one as vicious as this. Naturally, people wanted to know what happened, and many turned to cable news. Cable news has created a perverse exchange where they will trade us tidbits of information for fealty to the fear they are propagating. When Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel—a drunken loser who spent his life violating every tenet of Islam—drove a truck into a crowd in Nice, France and killed 86 people, cable news ordained him an “Islamic terrorist” and a “lone wolf.” The facts of his sad life and desperation were secondary to the picture of a cunning supervillain being painted by cable news.
Last night we saw a constant rotation of the same horrific images from Manchester. Cable news does this to make sure that we're scared so we keep watching, but this practice doubles as the greatest recruiting video that groups like ISIS could ask for. It embeds the horror in our collective consciousness and enshrines an image that the globe can never forget. For the “lone wolves” recruited by ISIS, this fame is their salvation. Nearly all these attackers share a similar profile: young, male loners who fill their empty lives with alcohol, drugs and sex. Like many, they find religion at their lowest moment, yet Wahhabism is not a religion, but an ideological super weapon that is best combated by empathy and understanding, not violence—a concept that is completely foreign to our cable news networks.
If you think about cable news as a sitcom and not as news, terrorism is the star of the show. After Donald Trump attacked Syria, Brian Williams of MSNBC provided a perfect example of how titillated our media gets over war, when he said that he is “guided by the beauty of our weapons.” Terrorism is a war on civilians, which makes it exponentially more potent in its appeal to the CNN's of the world. Not only do they get to wax poetic about conflict and put their Very Serious faces on, but they get to scare the living daylights out of us in the process. This is precisely what groups like ISIS want. Terrorism isn't primarily about murdering innocent people, but using those horrific images to strike fear into a vastly larger segment of the populace. al-Qaeda and ISIS could not ask for a better outlet to broadcast their jihad than cable news.
By replaying the same images over and over and over and over again, not only does cable news accomplish ISIS's primary goal of permanently scarring the populace, but they also serve as a recruitment mechanism for these groups—creating a feedback loop that boosts cable news ratings in tandem with new enrollment in terrorist groups, all paid for by the blood of the innocent. Any moments of rationality brought on by anchors interviewing experts is immediately drowned out by the cacophony of pundits prognosticating about what we should do next, and what this means for our political environment. TV news is a cynical venture that was perfectly summarized by CBS CEO Les Moonves when he said of Trump “it may not be good for America, but it's damn good for CBS.”
Like ISIS or al-Qaeda, TV news is not American, as they pledge their loyalty to a higher power. ISIS and al-Qaeda are devoted to jihadist ideology, while TV news prays at the altar of the almighty dollar. Fox News has taken a ton of heat for completely avoiding any coverage of the Donald Trump-Russia connection, but MSNBC and CNN aren't breathlessly covering that saga because they genuinely care about holding truth to power, but because that's what their audiences want. Last night exposed their cynical ploy for all to see."
Just one more thing.... What would the television Detective, Columbo do?
"Columbo is an American television series starring Peter Falk as Columbo, a homicide detective with the Los Angeles Police Department. The character and show, created by Richard Levinson and William Link, popularized the inverted detective story format, which begins by showing the commission of the crime and its perpetrator; the series therefore usually has no "whodunit" element."
"The plot revolves around how a perpetrator whose identity is already known to the audience will finally be caught and exposed (which the show's writers called a "howcatchem", rather than a "whodunit")."

Elvis Should Have Stayed In Vegas: Las Vegas Is A Military Disneyland
"During World War II, the Rockwell Field which was a civilian airport of Las Vegas and Clark County since 1926 was closed and the new airport became a military base of the U.S. Army Air Corps from 1941 and functioned as "flexible gunnery training school". This airport was named as McCarran Airport, in honour of Patrick McCarran, the then U.S. senator of Nevada. After the war, the gunnery school was closed but the air force, in 1947, wanted to continue operating the airport for military purposes only. As a result, a new civilian airport location had to be chosen. This was selected at the Alamo Field. Clark County bought this land from its owner George Crockett but permitting him to retain his business in the airport. After the war ended, as part of tourism promotion, a new county airport was built starting with a referendum in May 1947 and commissioned on 19 December 1948. It served for 15 years till the jet planes made the airport ineffective."
"The stone pillars which marked the entrance to the old McCarran Airport were shifted to the new airport and rededicated to McCarran."

Black, White & Red: The Colors of Playing Cards
"In medieval Europe, card games occasioned drinking, gambling, and a host of other vices that drew cheats and charlatans to the table. Card playing became so widespread and disruptive that authorities banned it. In his book The Game of Tarot, the historian Michael Dummett explains that a 1377 ordinance forbade card games on workdays in Paris. Similar bans were enacted throughout Europe as preachers sought to regulate card playing, convinced that “the Devil’s picture book” led only to a life of depravity."

Divination: The Origin of Gambling
"Saturnalia was an ancient Roman festival in honour of the god Saturn, held on 17 December of the Julian calendar and later expanded with festivities through to 23 December. The holiday was celebrated with a sacrifice at the Temple of Saturn, in the Roman Forum, and a public banquet, followed by private gift-giving, continual partying, and a carnival atmosphere that overturned Roman social norms: gambling was permitted, and masters provided table service for their slaves. The poet Catullus called it "the best of days"."

The Origin of The Idea Called Time
Saturn is the God of government, commerce and time, among other things. Saturn as allegory of time represents a Black Sun of sorts. The Sun itself rises and sets everyday and is our global culture's main timekeeping means. Mechanized clocks replaced sun dials and now we have digital devices to define time for us.
Our's is a Sun worshipping, 'money is time and time is money', Sun obsessed, religious cult-based - global culture.
Saturn would seem to be allegory for the Sun's ill effect as every time it rises and sets we all have one less day of life to live.
Las Vegas is so Circularly Occulted
The Skyvue Las Vegas Super Wheel Screen
"The Skyvue Las Vegas Super Wheel (also capitalized SkyVue) is an unfinished giant Ferris wheel near the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, US."
"As of 2016, only the concrete pillars have been built. Construction of the wheel and the proposed larger 3-phase project for the site — London, Las Vegas — have been abandoned, and the plot has been advertised for sale. London, Las Vegas, as suggested by the official website, was to be a 38.5-acre property featuring 1,300 hotel rooms, a casino, the Skyvue wheel and 550,000 square feet of restaurants and shops—all of which would be architectural replicas of various British landmarks and neighborhoods."
"The Skyvue wheel, being "Phase I of London, Las Vegas" was intended to feature a large display billed as the "largest outdoor advertising LED screen in the world". "
"Skyvue was originally announced as being 476 ft (145 m) tall, but has since been reported to be 490 ft (150 m)[ and 500 ft (152.4 m). Approved by Clark County Commission in March 2011, it was announced at a media event and groundbreaking ceremony in May 2011 by Howard Bulloch of Compass Investments, who stated "We expect it to be up and running in time for New Year's 2012." It was originally expected to have 40 gondolas, each carrying 20-25 people, but in March 2012 when 1,300 cubic yards of concrete foundations were poured it was reported that there would only be 32 gondolas, each carrying 24 passengers, and that it would not open until July 4, 2013.
In May 2012, the estimated opening date was further put back to late 2013, at which time it was also reported that construction of the two main support columns had reached a height of 60 ft (18.3 m). In July 2012 it was reported that Skyvue was scheduled to open on New Year's Eve, 2013, and that its support columns, which had reached a height of about 61 m (200 ft), should be completed within a month. A March 2013 update indicated the spindle and yoke were being assembled off site and would be installed "shortly". In July 2013 the developer stated “We anticipate construction to resume in the next couple of months.” Projected opening has been delayed until mid-2015."
"In January 2014, all scaffolding was removed from the columns, furthering speculation if the project will ever be finished."

Financing By Shotgun Creek Investments
"On March 5, 2012, Shotgun Creek Investments, headed by Wayne Perry, announced their involvement in the $300 million project. By August 2012 they had "invested tens of millions" and may put in more, according to a statement released by SkyVue.[ In early 2013 Shotgun Creek Investments made two loans totaling $9 million in the project."

Nevada: A Federally Owned State
"Over 87% of the Nevada area is owned by the federal government, as homesteads of maximum 640 acres (2.6 km2) in the arid state were generally too little land for a viable farm. Instead, early settlers would homestead land surrounding a water source, and then graze cattle on the adjacent public land, which is useless without access to water. The Enlarged Homestead Act of 1909, the establishment of a state dry-farming experiment station, and private promotional efforts stimulated dry farming within a fifty-mile radius of Wells, Nevada, but a combination of low precipitation, short summers, abundant jackrabbits, mediocre soil, and the faulty judgment of the settlers themselves virtually ended the ill-favored experiment after 1916."
"Military and other government exploration of the territory included efforts by John C. Frémont (1843), Lieutenant E. G. Beckwith (1854), and the Fortieth Parallel Survey (1867). During the American Civil War, the territory mustered infantry and cavalry, and skirmishes of the American Indian Wars occurred in Nevada during the Snake War (1864–1868). American Old West forts in Nevada included Fort Churchill, Fort Halleck, Fort McDermit, and Fort Schellbourne. The current Hawthorne Army Depot was established for munitions production in 1930."
Rolling Bones & Perhaps Busting Skulls, At The Last Frontier: The Militarization of Las Vegas Begins
"Las Vegas in the 1940s was notable for the establishment of The Strip in a town which "combined Wild West frontier friendliness with glamor and excitement". In 1940, the population was 8,400 but within five years, it more than doubled its size. The Las Vegas Valley had a population of 13,937 in 1940, increasing to 35,000 in just two years."
"In the early 1940s, the town experienced political problems resulting in two city governments, each claiming to have the right to rule. The militarization of Las Vegas began when the Army Gunnery School (now Nellis Air Force Base) was established in 1941; between 1941–45, 55,000 students attended classes here. The city of Henderson was established in 1941.
During the World War II period, when defense spending was high, tourist traffic to Las Vegas necessitated raising of many new buildings on the Fifth street, Fremont Street and many other prime roads leading to the casinos. During the 40s and also in the 50s the resort sector also developed in a big way to the detriment of the residential houses in many of the residential streets. Suburbs with single family housing complexes and apartment blocks sprung up behind El Rancho and other hotels on The Strip. The city also modified its grid pattern layout, as the city extended southwards and e realigned in north-south direction. As the casinos came into existence on the Strip along the Fremont street, the commercial establishments were moved to the Main Street and Commerce Street."
"On January 25, 1941 the U.S. Army established a flexible gunnery school for the United States Army Air Corps in Las Vegas. Mayor John L. Russell signed over land to the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps for this development. The gunnery school later would become Nellis Air Force Base. The U.S Army was not pleased with the legal prostitution in Las Vegas and in 1942 forced Las Vegas to outlaw the practice, putting Block 16, the local red light district permanently out of business.
On April 3, 1941, hotel owner Thomas Hull opened the El Rancho Vegas. It was the first resort on what would become the Las Vegas Strip. The hotel gained much of its fame from the gourmet buffet that it offered.
On October 30, 1942, R. E. Griffith rebuilt on the site of a nightclub called Pair-O-Dice, that first opened in 1930, and renamed it Hotel Last Frontier. A few more resorts were built on and around Fremont Street but the next hotel on the Strip publicly demonstrated the influence of organized crime on Las Vegas. Although ethnic organized crime figures had been involved in some of the operations at the hotels, the Mafia bosses never owned or controlled the hotels and clubs which remained monopolized by hard-bitten local Las Vegas families who were unwilling to cede ground to the crime bosses and proved strong enough to push back. This changed in post-war Las Vegas when Jewish gangster Bugsy Siegel, with help from friend and fellow mob boss Meyer Lansky, poured money through Mormon-owned banks for cover of legitimacy and built The Flamingo in 1946."
R.E. Griffith & Underprivileged Boys
"Griffith entered the theatre business as a film salesman and later branched out as a distributor of independent pictures through the states of Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. Later he and his brothers, L.C. Griffith and H.J. Griffith, associated themselves with Universal Pictures Company and formed what was known as the Griffith Amusement Company of Oklahoma City. Their first theatre was a little wooden western house in San Marcos, Texas. The brothers then opened H.J. Griffith Theatres, Inc., of Kansas City, Missouri; R.E. Griffith Theatres, Inc., of Dallas, Texas, and L.C. Griffith of the Griffith Amusement Company in Oklahoma City. R.E. Griffith and his brothers controlled some 800 theatres in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, New Mexico, ARizona, Nebraska and Missouri. They were also associated with the Johnny Long Theatres of Texas, the Louis Long Theatres of Arizona, and the Western Theatre Corporation. Achieving a successful career in the theatre business before the age of 50, Griffith branched out into the hotel business and built the Hotel El Rancho in Gallup, New Mexico. In 1942, Griffith and his nephew William J. Moore, Jr., opened the Hotel Last Frontier. Griffith then purchased the Charleston Park Lodge, Hidden Valley Ranch, and Warm Springs Ranch in Mapa Valley.
Griffith was involved in, including being elected president, of the noted Variety Club of Texas, a charitable organization made up of business men of the theatre world. He was a heavy contributor to their large annual drive for underprivileged boys. Griffith had contributed one of his large ranches in Beltonn, Texas, for the use of these youngsters. He constructed buildings and put in many improvements free summer vacation of underprivileged boys. The Boystown "wishing well" was located in the Ramona Room of Hotel Last Frontier which was one of Mr. and Mrs. Griffith's favorite charities.
Griffith surrounded himself with an exceptional personnel staff of specialized and trained employees, as well as an executive who understood his ideas and could carry them out. A few weeks before his death Griffith had purchased Ciro's in Hollywood, California. Ciro's had been seriously damaged by fire and he was planning to rebuild and reopen this famous coast amusement spot."
The Luxor's Restaurant: "The Isis restaurant is wonderful,"
"Have stayed yearly or more at the Luxor for four years. First the good, Love the upgrades on inexpensive pyrimid rooms to a pyrimid jacuzzi room for 50 bucks, love the roomy jacuzzi's next to large tinted windows so you can look up at the sky from the tub, late checkouts never seem to be much of a problem if it is not a holiday or big event weekend. The staff is willing to accomodate if rooms are available and you want a change. Room service is really excellent and can be ordered to arrive at any set time and it is on time. The fruit platter is big and very nice, so are the croissants, my husband was happy with the other menu items. At New Year's it is a great place to be to watch the fireworks slide up the strip, you can see from Mandalay bay as far as MGM pretty easily. The Luxor is the only hotel I have stayed in in Vegas with some healthy and appealing choices on the room service menu. Staff has always been courteous and accomodating whenever we stay. They have a good business office. Most pyramid views are neat. The pyramid rooms are of of course, smaller towards the top but it is cool to stay there, there are fridges and extra tvs in the jacuzzi suites, bathrooms are generally large. On windy days the wind whips around the top of the pryamid and it sounds like wolves howling, very cool. In the spring when the insects are hatching they fly into the beam on top and attract thousands of bats, so from a distance at night the beam looks like it is full of confetti, really, really cool."
"The casino is small and smokey but fairly loose slots, and the walkways and monorails to Mandalay Bay, Excalibur etc., make those hotels and the MGM and New York fairly accessible on foot for fit people. The Isis restaurant is wonderful,"

A Vegas ISIS Angle
"Same for Alex Jones, who—it appears—has also been tapped by Intel to promote the multiple- shooters/ISIS-is-real angle on this, while confirming other parts of it as a false flag. Jones/Adams/Barrett/Fetzer and many others are looking more alike every year, indicating they are all being promoted by the same faction."

History of Vegas Lodge No. 32
"The opening of Clark's Las Vegas townsite was the occasion of some interesting developments, one of which was the eventual establishment of a Masonic lodge in the district. It has been said that Masonry was almost an outgrowth of the soil in the new townsite. When it came nobody knows, but Masons were there when the crowd gathered to purchase and settle in the new district, and from that time forward, Masonic history began its lofty career near the rushing tide of the Colorado River in Las Vegas district.
It is only natural to assume, that among this flood of humanity which surged toward this oasis in the desert, lured by the commercial and industrial possibilities offered, the Masons who had gathered here, with the ebb of the tide, were impelled to group themselves into a body whereby Masonic light might be diffused, and it was only a natural assumption that the establishment of a Masonic lodge in Las Vegas would make for law, order and morality, as it had always done in other newly established districts; for with the tide, had drifted those of the underworld, some of whom were not regarded, nor wished for as citizens, and in other sections of the country where this element had held sway and into which communities Masonry had been introduced, the influences of the craft, and the standing of its membership united to eventually rid these communities of their undesirables. Nor was Las Vegas an exception to the rule, for it must be remembered that the Masons who had gravitated into this thirsty, arid section of the country were men of outstanding moral and constructive abilities, well qualified to guide the destinies of a people who had gathered to establish a new community and to develop its resources, some of whom were to occupy places of honor and positions of responsibility in municipal, county and state affairs. Soon the members of this small group, who had found Masonic light in other jurisdictions, were augmented by other arrivals, and Masonic representation here was sufficient to warrant the brethren to ask for authority to establish a lodge under dispensation."
"It has become Masonic tradition in the Las Vegas lodge that as early as July, 1905, these brethren had endeavored to formulate plans whereby Masonry in the district might become a reality in the establishment of an active lodge, but owing to the fact that the town was in the process of becoming established, and the population was more or less of a transient character, it was deemed advisable to await for more favorable conditions before applying for a dispensation. The delay incident to this decision lapsed into months, and the spring of 1907 was at hand before further action was taken, at which time fifteen resident Masons of Las Vegas, most of whom are said to have been living in the district before the promoting of Clark's townsite, made application to the Grand Lodge of Nevada for a dispensation. The movement was headed by Brother John S. Park, with the assistance and support of Brothers E. W. Griffith and William R. Thomas, all of whom, by virtue of their service in the order, were qualified to guide the fraternal baroque upon the uncharted sea of Masonry in the district. Associated with them were A. N. Pauff, Waiter R. Bracken, Henry M. Lillas, Roy C. Thomas, Benjamin F. Boggs, Rev. J. W. Bain, Charles F. Towner, Frank A. Buol and E. T. Maxwell, all of whom were intimately associated with the professional and commercial activities of the town, and who at one time or other had been actively engaged in Masonic service in other jurisdictions. The application for dispensation was addressed to Most Worshipful Robert Lewers, Grand Master of Nevada Masons. With the granting of the dispensation, Brother John S. Park was named Worshipful Master, Edw. Griffith Senior Warden, and William R. Thomas, Junior Warden."
