October 1 will forever be remembered as one of the deadliest days in our nation’s history all brought about by one deranged psychopath who nobody had heard of before this bloody massacre. Now almost 36 hours later, we’re learning of a chilling message that appeared three weeks prior to this horrific event which went ignored and ended up with 59 people dead at a country concert.
Nobody had heard of Stephen Paddock before Sunday and now it’s a name that Americans will never forget, especially those who lost loved one at the hands of this maniacal man. Hopped up on hate seemingly fueled by liberal rhetoric, Paddock retreated to the 32 floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino where he inflicted his sick plans that perhaps could have been prevented had a warning not been ignored.
A massive attack like Paddock’s couldn’t have happened without careful planning and some trail of evidence that led him there. He had worked out every fine detail and it didn’t go unnoticed by one person who tried to warn others but was sadly disregarded.
Three weeks ago, a mystery man who only identified himself as “John” posted a message that was overlooked at the time. Now that it’s too late, his chilling messages are getting a lot of attention based on what he referred to as a “high incident project.”
John made a very specific series of posts that appeared on the social site 4Chan on September 11 warning people to stay away from any gatherings of large groups of people in the Las Vegas area or the nearby town of Henderson.
“While the poster was ignored at the time, since nothing seemed to occur on the 12th, the fact that John wrote ‘I can’t guarantee anything will happen tomorrow but Las Vegas is on their minds,’ seems almost frightening now that just a few weeks later the largest mass shooting in American history has occurred at this very location.”
“If we even consider the idea there could be any truth to such a plot in the first place, it’s not really all that unreasonable to believe the organizers could have simply adjusted there schedule by a few weeks. This could have been done for a myriad of reasons including just simply deciding the concert target eventually chosen served their purposes better.”
The persistent question since the Sunday attack has been what Paddock’s motivation was to kill so many country concert-goers. Substantial evidence seems to suggest that it was politically motivated based on materials found his hotel room. However, John asserts that there is also financial motivation to “high incident projects” like the one we just witnessed this past weekend, with specific regard to it being a big business move.
“He states this ‘project’ will be done with an endgame goal of passing new laws in Nevada regarding casino security, making pricey new security screening machines mandatory for all guests,” according to Newsely who referenced John’s post. The plans are even more ambitious than just casinos and hotels as the financial gain stands to be substantial if these machines are required in our schools and other public buildings.
“He also specifically names former head of the Department of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff and casino owner and billionaire Sheldon Adelson as the two men set to profit most from the wave of new regulations set to spring up in response to the Vegas incident,” the report continued. “It’s not all that unreasonable even to believe that Mr. Chertoff might seek to profit from a new security panic in the wake of Vegas. Given that the man has already been accused of abusing the public trust by raising security fears among average American’s in an attempt to sell his companies body scanners before, all the way back in 2010.”
There’s been a lot of speculation as to how a man who the media, FBI, and even his own family insist had no political or religious affiliations could commit a crime like this which is typically driven by one or both of these influences. Presenting the theory that there’s big financial gain in pushing these detectors in public buildings across the U.S. could suggest that maybe Paddock himself was persuaded or groomed to be the tool.
There are a lot of unexplained parts to this attack, especially the question of how a man with seemingly no knowledge of logistics could have carefully planned out every fine detail of this attack on his own and all under the radar. There are thousands of surveillance cameras throughout a casino, in the halls of the hotel, and in elevators yet he was somehow able to set up everything he needed to monitor his surroundings in and around the hotel, without someone noticing.
It’s hard to believe that this was all one large coincidence. Regardless of how Paddock’s planning went unseen or John’s warnings ignored, there needs to better security measures in place to prevent something like this from happening again.
Paddock should have never been able to slip through the cracks like he did which was either the result of negligence, ignorance, or just all part of a plan.
