Brokaw: Gun Conversations Become ‘Emotional’ Between Gun Owners and People Saying There’s ‘Reasonable Middle Ground’
http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/10/02/brokaw-gun-conversations-become-emotional-between-gun-owners-and-people
by IAN HANCHETT2 Oct 20172,785
On Monday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” Tom Brokaw argued that it’s impossible to have a conversation on what kind of firearms can be purchased because it becomes emotionally-charged between gun owners “who are protected by the NRA, and other people who are saying, ‘There ought to be a more reasonable middle ground.'”

Brokaw stated there should be a national conversation on the amount of mass shootings in the US. He added, “You listen to those weapons, they’re on full auto at that point. Where did he get that kind of a gun? You can now get an AR-15, which is a modification of a military weapon, an M1, but it’s supposed to be a single shot at a time, but it has a big capacity. I go to a gun store in Montana, and I’ve owned guns all my life, and it used to have mostly .30-30s and high-powered sporting rifles. Now, they’ve got racks of these adapted military weapons. Stan McChrystal, who led our forces in Afghanistan and Iraq said, we ought not to be selling these kinds of weapons to the American civilian population. They’re designed to do one thing, which is to kill people. And they can be adapted. So, we need to have that kind of a dialogue in this country. No other Western nation has the number of gun deaths that we have in America, and we need to talk about it.”

He further stated, “And it’s amazing what you can buy on the market, by the way, whether it’s at a gun show, or illegally, from other people. So, we can’t have that conversation. Because it immediately becomes so emotional between the gun owners of America, who are protected by the NRA, and other people who are saying, ‘There ought to be a more reasonable middle ground.’ I’m a gun owner. I’ve got a closet full of them in Montana. I don’t have one of those AR-15s. I don’t need them. Because I’m not going to be shooting that kind of thing. But almost all my friends out there now have that kind of a weapon.”

Brokaw concluded by saying, “I don’t know what we do…in keeping our citizens safe unless we begin to lock down those kinds of gatherings. Because they have become targets for opportunity for these kinds of maniacs, as we’ve seen in too many other places.”

Did Vegas shooter become radicalized unbeknownst?
Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo floated the possibility that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock could have been “radicalized.” “I want to understand the motivation that you described, okay, to prevent any future incidents, and, you know, did this person get radicalized unbeknownst to us?
And we want to identify that source,” he told reporters during a press conference. While the Islamic State initially claimed responsibility for the attack, federal law enforcement quickly puts that theory to rest, saying they have not determined any “connection to any international terror group” at this point in the investigation.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo floated the possibility that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock could have been “radicalized.”
“I want to understand the motivation that you described, okay, to prevent any future incidents, and, you know, did this person get radicalized unbeknownst to us? And we want to identify that source,” he told reporters during a press conference.
While the Islamic State initially claimed responsibility for the attack, federal law enforcement quickly put that theory to rest, saying they have not determined any “connection to any international terror group” at this point in the investigation.
Paddock, a 64-year-old white male, was a multimillionaire real estate investor who had a penchant for high stakes gambling. He was known to have spent anywhere from $10,000 to $30,000 per day at Las Vegas casinos.
The week before the attack he also wired $100,000 to an account in the Philippines, where his girlfriend 62-year-old Marilou Danley was at the time of the mass shooting, which was the deadliest in U.S. history.
Danley, an Australian national of Filipino descent, returned to the United States Tuesday evening.
Paddock encouraged Danley to leave the country before the attack, her sisters said, CNN reports.
"I know that she don't know anything as well like us. She was sent away. She was away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he's planning," one of Danley's sisters told 7 News, a CNN affiliate in Australia.
"In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister's life," she said, adding that Danley was "really in love with Steve."
Her other sister said Danley is the only one who can help police determine Paddock’s motive.
"No one can put the puzzles together, no one, except Marilou, because Steve is not here to talk anymore. Only Marilou can maybe help," the sister said.
"If Marilou was there, this maybe as well didn't happen because she won't let it happen."

Mass Shooting Outside Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay; 50+ Dead, 500+ Sent to Hospital
http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/10/02/las-vegas-report-one-gunman-open-fire-mandalay-bay-casino

A gunman opened fire on a country music concert outside the Mandalay Bay casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday evening.
Fifty-nine people are confirmed dead and there are 527 reported injured. The shooter, named as Stephen Paddock, was confirmed dead by Joseph Lombardo, the sheriff of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

The gunman opened fire on tens of thousands of concertgoers gathered for the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

Update — 10:25 p.m. PDT: As late-night host Jimmy Kimmel lectures Americans about the “gun lobby,” footage emerges of a performance right before the shooting began. Country music stars Big & Rich performed “God Bless America” during their set at the country music festival, just an hour before gunfire rang across the plaza. The footage shows thousands of fans holding their cell phones aloft — thousands of lights in the night sky — and singing along.

Nearly 600 of those in the crowd would later be wounded, dozens of them fatally so.

Update — 9:45 p.m. PDT: The Associated Press reports that the gunman owned two “bump stocks,” legal devices that can mimic the effect of automatic weapons fire when attached to a semiautomatic rifle. It is not known whether he used them in the shooting.

Update — 7:20 p.m. PDT: The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department announced at an evening briefing that the suspect had been determined to have 23 firearms at the Mandalay Bay, and 19 at his home in Mesquite. The police continued to investigate evidence at the Mesquite home to determine the motive of the killer. He had acted alone, police said. Blood banks had received so many donations that they did not need any more help, they said. The police commissioner said that the department had received $2.2 million from a total of 30,000 donors, after setting an initial target of raising $500,000 as part of a donation drive to support the victims of the shooting.

Update — 5:45 p.m. PDT: On ESPN’s Monday Night Football, the entire Washington Redskins squad stood for the national anthem. Most of the Kansas City Chiefs did as well.

Update — 12:50 p.m. PDT: Oddly enough, it’s the Washington Post that thoroughly destroys Hillary Clinton’s non sequitur about “silencers” and the Vegas shooting:

Clinton and others appear to be assuming that silencers — or “suppressors,” as they’re known in the industry — work the way that they do in the movies. Screw a little barrel on the end of your pistol, and you can run through enemy headquarters picking off bad guys with no more audio footprint than a little zip.

President Trump: ‘We’ll Be Talking About Gun Laws’

President Trump reacted to the Las Vegas attack by saying, “We’ll be talking about gun laws as time goes by.”
According to the Washington Times, Trump praised the police response to the attack, saying on Tuesday the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police did an “incredible job.” He added, “How quickly the police department was able to get in was really very much of a miracle. They’ve done an amazing job.”

But after praising the police, Trump made clear a discussion on gun laws is coming:

FOX VIDEO Pres. Trump WE ARE LOOKINGN AT A SICK INDIVIDUAL

During an October 2 press briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders expressed the same sentiment. While dismissing calls to discuss gun control during the briefing, Sanders suggested there will be a time to look at gun policies. The Washington Post quoted her describing Monday as a “day of mourning.” She said, “There will certainly be a time for that policy discussion to take place, but that’s not the place that we’re in at this moment.”

Axios reports that Breitbart News’ executive chairman Steve Bannon observed that Trump’s voting base would react worse to gun control than to an amnesty bill. Bannon said that Trump’s support for gun control would “be the end of everything.”

16 Unanswered Questions About The Las Vegas Shooting That The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want To Talk About

16 Unanswered Questions About The Las Vegas Shooting That The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want To Talk About
(By Michael Snyder) The public is not being told the truth about what really went down in Las Vegas. As you will see below, the evidence is mounting that there were multiple shooters and that this was an operation that was planned well in advance. But according to the mainstream media, a 64-year-old retired accountant with a flabby physique that had no military training whatsoever and that wasn’t very experienced with guns was able to pull the whole thing off all by himself. We are being told that Paddock was a “lone wolf” that didn’t have any ties to terror groups, and since he is now dead nobody is ever going to be able to interrogate him. But the American people definitely deserve some answers about what took place, and that means that all of us should keep digging. The following are 16 unanswered questions about the Las Vegas shooting that the mainstream media does not want to talk about…
#1 Photos of Stephen Paddock’s hotel room have been leaked, and one of those photos appears to show a suicide note. Why hasn’t the public been told what is in that note?
#2 Were there additional shooters? A taxi driver clearly captured video of an automatic weapon being fired out of a lower level window. A video from another angle and brief footage captured by Dan Bilzerian also seem to confirm that automatic gunfire was coming from a floor much lower than the 32nd floor room that Stephen Paddock was located on. And if you weren’t convinced by the first three videos, this fourth video should definitely do it.

16 Unanswered Questions About The Las Vegas Shooting That The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want To Talk About
By Michael Snyder, on October 3rd, 2017
The public is not being told the truth about what really went down in Las Vegas. As you will see below, the evidence is mounting that there were multiple shooters and that this was an operation that was planned well in advance. But according to the mainstream media, a 64-year-old retired accountant with a flabby physique that had no military training whatsoever and that wasn’t very experienced with guns was able to pull the whole thing off all by himself. We are being told that Paddock was a “lone wolf” that didn’t have any ties to terror groups, and since he is now dead nobody is ever going to be able to interrogate him. But the American people definitely deserve some answers about what took place, and that means that all of us should keep digging.

The following are 16 unanswered questions about the Las Vegas shooting that the mainstream media does not want to talk about…

#1 Photos of Stephen Paddock’s hotel room have been leaked, and one of those photos appears to show a suicide note. Why hasn’t the public been told what is in that note?

#2 Were there additional shooters? A taxi driver clearly captured video of an automatic weapon being fired out of a lower level window. A video from another angle and brief footage captured by Dan Bilzerian also seem to confirm that automatic gunfire was coming from a floor much lower than the 32nd floor room that Stephen Paddock was located on. And if you weren’t convinced by the first three videos, this fourth video should definitely do it.

#3 Why were law enforcement authorities discussing “another suspect on the fourth floor”, and why isn’t the mainstream media talking about this?

#4 As Jon Rappoport has pointed out, it would have been impossible for Stephen Paddock to kill and wound 573 people in less than five minutes of shooting with the kinds of weapons that he is alleged to have used. So why won’t law enforcement authorities acknowledge this fact?

#5 How in the world did Paddock get 42 guns and “several thousand rounds of ammo” into his hotel room without anyone noticing?

#6 How did someone with “no military background” and that wasn’t a “gun guy at all” operate such advanced weapons? Because what we are being told by the mainstream media just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. I really like how Natural News made this point…

Far from what the firearms-illiterate media claims, these are not systems that any Joe off the street can just pick up and use to effortlessly mow down 500 people. Running these systems requires extensive training, experience and stamina. It is physically impossible for a guy like Stephen Paddock to operate such a system in the sustained, effective manner that we witnessed, especially when shooting from an elevated position which throws off all the ranging of the weapon system.

Far from being a Navy Seal, Stephen Paddock is a retired accountant senior citizen with a gambling problem and a flabby physique. The only way he could have carried out this shooting is if he were transformed into a human superweapon through a magic wand. I’m calling this “Mission IMPOSSIBLE” because of the physical impossibility of a retired, untrained senior citizen pulling this off.

#7 Why was one woman telling people in the crowd that they were all going to die 45 minutes before the attack?

#8 Why did it take law enforcement authorities 72 minutes to get into Stephen Paddock’s hotel room?

#9 Why did Paddock wire $100,000 to the Philippines last week?

#10 Why was Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, in the Philippines when the attack took place? Did she know what was about to happen?

#11 Was Paddock on antidepressants like so many other mass killers in the past have been?

#12 Why was ISIS so eager to take responsibility for this attack, and why was the FBI so quick to dismiss that connection?

#13 Apparently Paddock had earned millions of dollars “through real estate deals”. If he was so wealthy, why would he all of a sudden snap like that?

#14 Why did he move so frequently? It is being reported that Paddock had 27 different residences during his adult life.

#15 Why were nearly all of the exits out of the concert venue completely blocked?…

In essence, the concert trapped the people, preventing them from escaping, and denying them the ability to seek cover. From there, sustained, full-auto gunfire is almost impossible to survive.

From Fox News, a caller named Russell Bleck, who survived the shooting, said live on air, “There were ten-foot walls blocking us in. We couldn’t escape. It was just a massacre. We had nowhere to go.”

#16 Why was a country music festival chosen as the target? Was the goal to kill as many Trump supporters and other conservatives as possible? And is there evidence that Stephen Paddock was connected to Antifa in any way?

At first I thought that this was a fairly straightforward story too, but the more I have dug into it the more complex things have become.

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that Stephen Paddock definitely did not act alone. That means that the others involved in the shooting are still out there, and they must be brought to justice. Let us never forget what these extremely wicked individuals did to innocent civilians such as 27-year-old Tina Frost…

A 27-year-old woman has lost her right eye after a bullet ripped through her face during the Las Vegas concert massacre.

Tina Frost remains in a coma in hospital after undergoing surgery to remove the bullet that became lodged in her eye when a gunman opened fire on the crowd of country music fans on Sunday night.

Frost, who is originally from Maryland but moved to California several years ago, is expected to remain in the coma for a week.

Whoever did this is going to pay greatly. Yes, I do believe that Stephen Paddock was involved. But he did not act alone, and the mainstream media is doing the public a great disservice by ignoring all of the evidence that this was not just a “lone wolf” operation.

A friend Questions.......24/7 reports...which do you believe??? Remember Alinski Rules for Radicals...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rules_for_Radicals

EXTRACTED
The Rules[edit]
1"Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have." Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. "Have-Nots" must build power from flesh and blood.
2"Never go outside the expertise of your people." It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
3"Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy." Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
4"Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
5"Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
6"A good tactic is one your people enjoy." They'll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They're doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
7"A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag." Don't become old news.
8"Keep the pressure on. Never let up." Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
9"The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself." Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
10"The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition." It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.
11"If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive." Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
12"The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative." Never let the enemy score points because you're caught without a solution to the problem.
13"Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.



Do These Eyewitness Videos Foil Media & Police Narrative in Las Vegas Shooting?
TIM BROWN — OCTOBER 3, 2017
https://freedomoutpost.com/eyewitness-videos-foil-media-police-narrative-las-vegas-shooting/

In the time we live in, virtually everyone can be somewhat of an "on the street journalist" because they have cell phones with cameras. During Sunday night's machine gun attack in Las Vegas, several people were armed with their cell phones and cameras and caught the shooting that took place at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, only it doesn't quite fit the narrative that the media and the police are feeding the American people.

First , we were given the below photo of the 32nd floor window that was broken from which 64-year-old Stephen Paddock allegedly fired hundreds, if not thousands of rounds into a crowd of concert goers.


We were also told that he was doing the shooting by himself, in an alleged "lone wolf" style shooting, which the Islamic State has claimed credit.

We've also been told via the media and the police that the shooting originated from the 32nd floor of the hotel and thus it is the reason for the damage to the windows.

However, eyewitness videos capture a completely different narrative.

First, take a look at this video that was captured. Many say this is a strobe light, but upon closer examination, it doesn't appear there is a strobe on the hotel in this area and the sounds of gunfire quite possibly match the flashes from the shots being taken.

Clearly, these shots are not taken from the 32nd Floor.

However, this is not the only video of the muzzle blasts. An eyewitness was driving near the hotel and captured this little nugget.

Pay attention at about the 25-second mark. You can hear the gunfire and see the flash from the muzzle.

Here's an even clearer shot.

So far, police have not addressed this, as far as I know. In fact, they continue to maintain that Paddock acted alone, that he had all these guns (upwards of 23, and owned 43, something his brother claimed would be completely unlike him to do), tons of ammunition, and murdered nearly 60 people and injured upwards of 500.

I ask you, are you going to believe your lying eyes or the media that you claim you don't believe?

Why is the mainstream media covering this footage up?

Why are the police not speaking about this video footage?

This comes as Congress was set to vote on silencers which would have done nothing except melted from use with the type of weapons used in Vegas.

Now, were' being told Paddock had Antifa literature in his possession, but here's where it is all going: More calls for gun control, and don't think it won't come from one of the places that people will least likely expect it. I'm not going to write it here, but we've warned you in the past about certain gun views despite rhetoric that was advanced.

There really is nothing wrong with people having guns, even fully automatic ones or ammunition. The Second Amendment is about as clear on that as anything when it states the right to keep and bear arms "shall not be infringed."

I'm sure in the Vegas area that night there were lots of people who had lots of guns and bullets, but they all didn't decide to go on a mass shooting spree, did they? Nope.

More gun laws will simply be more words that criminals, no matter their political persuasion will ignore to do what their evil hearts long to do, murder.

The only hope in those cases is the Gospel of Jesus Christ that changes their hearts. That, or if they decide to engage in such activities, a good guy with a gun.

After viewing the above videos, are you convinced that police and the media are giving you the truth about what really happened? If they aren't, I have to also ask, can we really believe what they are saying about Mr. Paddock?

I can only present people with information. They have to sort it and determine what they are going to believe.

TRUMP VINDICATED: Look Where “Relief Supplies” Were Found
October 2, 2017 Mark Prvulovic
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/look-where-relief-supplies-found/?utm_campaign=CNA_20170715&utm_medium=automated&bt_alias=eyJ1c2VySWQiOiAiMjA0NzVlMjEtYmFkYy00ZGM0LTkxMDYtOTUwZDNlN2Q5MjRlIn0%3D&utm_source=boomtrain
Although Hurricanes Irma and Harvey were less costly regarding death toll and damage thanks to the preparedness of the Trump administration, Puerto Rico wasn’t as fortunate. Instead of blaming themselves, however, some of the leadership of the devastated territory is playing politics instead.

Despite the mayor of San Juan criticizing President Trump for ignoring the suffering of his people, the truth seems to be quite the opposite, according to The Gateway Pundit. American aid is sitting in a warehouse, rotting, and the leaders in PR are so inept that they can’t even get people to the ports to pick up the supplies. The everyday workers aren’t to be blamed. Rather, it’s the managers, leaders, and politicians who should be carrying the responsibility on their shoulders.

Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz had issued an emotional plea for help on Friday, while criticizing Trump’s response to the situation, saying that, “you are killing us with the inefficiency” of the distribution process.

However, it appears the real source of the problem lies at the local level, rather than federal. Drivers from the Teamsters Union are not showing up to work, as they are not permitted to act because the union is on strike at the moment. With only one-fifth of drivers arriving at the ports to distribute the supplies, over 9,500 containers filled with aid haven’t been moved since they arrived.

One person tweeted a lengthy message outlining the situation, saying, “Did mayor of San Juan mention union workers at port are on STRIKE & demanding money first before distributing supplies off boat?”



Colonel Michael A. Valle, the leader of the Hurricane Maria relief efforts, made it public knowledge that the problem isn’t federal, but rather, a problem with local distribution in Puerto Rico. “It’s a lack of drivers for the transport trucks, the 18 wheelers. Supplies we have. Trucks we have. There are ships full of supplies, backed up in the ports, waiting to have a vehicle to unload into,” he said.

“However, only 20% of the truck drivers show up to work. These are private citizens in Puerto Rico, paid by companies that are contracted by the government,” Valle concluded.

Despite there being great need for these goods, there is such a stark deficiency in the logistical support that it’s almost impossible for these goods to get into the hands of those who need them most.

In addition to the shortage of drivers, a diesel crisis is plaguing the island as well. At the moment, distributing fuel across Puerto Rico is FEMA’s number one priority to help relieve the supply bottleneck issue, according to NPR.

Conservative commentator Curt Schilling also acknowledged this fact. “I’ve talked to politicians in both states (Texas and Florida) and the governor of Puerto Rico. All have said that the president did everything in a pace that they’ve never seen before as far as him releasing money and releasing assets into these theaters. The execution on the ground has been horrifying in some cases,” he said.

Puerto Rican leaders are saying President Trump hasn’t sent aid to the island, but they just haven’t unloaded it! Do you think President Trump has done the right thing?

Yes
No
Next
In contrast to the San Juan mayor’s comments, the governor of Puerto Rico ended up praising Trump as well, saying, “every time we’ve asked them to execute, they’ve executed quickly,” according to Breitbart.

As is usually the case, the mainstream media’s depiction is in contrast to the reality of the situation. The Trump administration has done all it can to alleviate the situation; the blame instead rests on the mid and upper-level leaders within the island whose response has been less than stellar.

The Empty Paddock
by Mark Steyn
Steyn on America
October 3, 2017
https://www.steynonline.com/8154/the-empty-paddock

Thank you to the 1,000+ Minnesotans who came out to fill the beautiful Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis last night. I'll say a little more about the evening itself later in the week, but it took place in the shadow of the deadliest single-shooter mass murder in American history less than 24 hours before, and John Hinderaker, appropriately, began the night with a moment of silence for the 59 dead and more than 500 injured.

In my own remarks, I also addressed the carnage. As often in America, it was met with a great deal of heroism by ordinary men and women rising to the occasion: There was, for example, an Englishwoman in a wheelchair who'd been seated on a raised platform so she could get a better view of the concert. If it were every man for himself, it would have been easy to leave her there, trapped on the dais, exposed to the gunman. Instead, as everyone fled, those around her nevertheless carried her to safety and raised her wheelchair over the fence they scrambled over. There were many stories like that throughout the day, far outweighing the grotesque Tweets glorying in the slaughter of presumed Trump voters. Twitter is an idiotic medium, but not, happily, a representative one.

I had thought by last night we would know more about Stephen Craig Paddock. By now the usual social-media non-paper trail and petty-crime police records and mental-health issues have emerged. Instead, nothing has - except some bizarrely distinctive details: He wasn't a loner, but lived with his girlfriend - an Australian citizen currently in Japan, but planning to return to the US today. He was not the usual loser, but a multi-millionaire. He had no apparent interest in guns and no military training, but he demonstrated remarkably lethal proficiency, either with semi-automatics he modified or with a genuine automatic he somehow acquired, a weapon that has been used in precisely three crimes in America since 1934. He didn't "snap", but instead calmly planned his act, identifying and securing the perfect corner suite in a massive hotel and then discreetly moving in dozens of weapons over four days and constructing platforms in front of those two windows.

Some of these quirks do not appear to be particularly consistent, and the Aussie in the adjoining room, for one, says there were "multiple shooters" and "they killed a security guard on my floor". On the face of it, "multiple shooters" would seem more plausible than Isis' claim that Mr Paddock had converted to Islam and changed his name to "Abu Abd Abdulbar al-Ameriki". But, pending any further revelations, it may well be that a wealthy retiree with no interest in guns got sufficiently interested sufficiently quickly to pull off America's all-time deadliest single-shooter massacre: An old dog taught himself a new trick, on a spectacular scale.

As I said on stage at the Guthrie Theatre, I had intended to talk about other matters - about the weekend's latest "vehicle attack" in Edmonton, Alberta, by a Somali immigrant (with an Isis flag on the seat of his car), who stabbed one policeman and ran over four people at Commonwealth Stadium; and about the two young women fatally stabbed (one with her throat slit) at the main rail station in Marseilles, by an illegal immigrant from the Maghreb; and the seventeen-year-old from the northern Caucasus who's just gone on trial in Oslo after being found with a bomb the day after the Stockholm jihad-motorist struck. But all these events, by fiercely committed ideologues in multiple jurisdictions in service of a global civilizational struggle, were all but forgotten, banished to the in-brief sidebars at the foot of page 37 by one apparently non-ideological American retiree who, unlike the aforementioned, was extremely good at killing large numbers of people.

I confess to a certain resentment at this. I regard the Albertan, French and Norwegian stories as far more relevant to where our world is heading. It is not a small thing when a young Frenchwoman can have her throat slit in broad daylight at a major public venue in a European metropolis, notwithstanding that the Mayor of London and others tell us we have to accept that it's now part and parcel of life in a big city. Yet in a certain sense these events are ineffectual - as the corpse count of a Stephen Paddock reminds us. And every Stephen Paddock makes it easier for all those who want to brush off Islamic supremacism and retreat to all those lame-o lines about how you've got more chance of being killed by a toppling household appliance than by a terrorist, and anyway, even when the shooting starts, half-a-dozen Isis cells can't match one white-male gun nut. Why didn't the Somali guy, the North African, the Caucasian jihadist figure out what one 64-year-old from a Nevada retirement community did? That all over the map there are soft targets with large numbers of people penned into small, tight, open-air spaces - and right across the street tall hotels whose upper floors offer easy opportunities for a bloodbath.

We have been, for the most part, very lucky. The foot-soldiers of the jihad are mostly dimwit Mohammedans: they have youth and energy and ideological fervor, but they are also largely stupid and unimaginative. The old guys are less energetic, but also less stupid: if Isis were right and there really were Islamic Stephen Paddocks - 40-50-60-somethings, worldly and full of low cunning - things would be very different.

Consider this year's two pop-concert atrocities: at Ariana Grande's in Manchester, 23 people died - in the cause of the new global caliphate; at Jason Aldean's in Vegas, 59 died - for no reason at all. It is a glum thought, but Paddock's all-time record will likely not stand for long. America's four deadliest single-shooter mass murders occurred in the last decade. Only one of them - the Orlando nightclub massacre - can be said to have a political or ideological component. The rest seem to be a peculiarly contemporary form of narcissism - that, when my life heads south, the only way to give it meaning is to take large numbers of people with me. There is no cause, no fealty, no "Allahu Akbar!" - because pointless slaughter is the supreme triumph of amoral will: Who needs Allah? You're your own Allah. Unlike Manchester or Nice or Paris or Berlin or Brussels, there is no meaning: Indeed, the only meaning is the meaninglessness; that is the point - the black void at the heart of the act.

To reiterate, I regard that Somali guy in Alberta as more relevant to the day after tomorrow, and a man like Paddock as peculiarly depraved, decadent and self-indulgent. But there's no arguing that (even with due allowance for the easier access to weaponry) the latter seem to be far more effective in their evil. In May, Isis called for attacks on Las Vegas - surely an iconic target for Islamic supremacists, but apparently not one they were capable of striking. So it was left to a retired accountant to do it for himself. I wrote in After America that, given the USA's open southern border, the best investment the jihad could make would be to try to convert three or four per cent of Mexicans to Islam. (There's some evidence they're doing that in parts of Latin America.) By the same token, imagine if Isis could really make good on their boasts and convert to Islam a few cool, cold, middle-aged men who over four days calmly walk multiple golf bags across the lobby and press the button for the 32nd floor...

Author canceled Las Vegas Concert — ‘Something Didn’t Feel Right’
Author and police officer Tyler Beddoes found himself on his knees praying on Monday morning after his wife told him about the horrific massacre that unfolded at a country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. Beddoes, author of “Proof of Angels” and “Left Standing: The Miraculous Story of How Mason Wells’s Faith Survived the Boston, Paris, and Brussels Terror Attacks,” said that he and his wife were going to go to the concert, but ended up changing their minds. “Something didn’t feel right about it,” he said. “Something didn’t feel right about going to that and we always go to concerts.” Beddoes and his

family had stopped off in Las Vegas to visit his wife’s relatives before heading to Disneyland in California this week. Initially, Beddoes and his wife planned to go to the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert, but said that an explicable gut feeling led them to head to California early. “It’s just crazy,” Beddoes said of the tragic shooting that left more than 50 people dead and hundreds injured. “I’ve learned to really rely on that inner voice. If that doesn’t feel right, let’s not do it.”

Gut Instinct Keeps Author From Attending Las Vegas Concert — ‘Something Didn’t Feel Right’

Author and police officer Tyler Beddoes found himself on his knees praying on Monday morning after his wife told him about the horrific massacre that unfolded at a country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Beddoes, author of “Proof of Angels” and “Left Standing: The Miraculous Story of How Mason Wells’s Faith Survived the Boston, Paris, and Brussels Terror Attacks,” said that he and his wife were going to go to the concert, but ended up changing their minds.

“Something didn’t feel right about it,” he said. “Something didn’t feel right about going to that and we always go to concerts.”

Beddoes and his family had stopped off in Las Vegas to visit his wife’s relatives before heading to Disneyland in California this week.

Initially, Beddoes and his wife planned to go to the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert, but said that an explicable gut feeling led them to head to California early.

“It’s just crazy,” Beddoes said of the tragic shooting that left more than 50 people dead and hundreds injured. “I’ve learned to really rely on that inner voice. If that doesn’t feel right, let’s not do it.”

Beddoes said he was sickened by the news and that he immediately turned to prayer after his wife told him what happened.

“The first thing when my wife said it, I got on my knees in the hotel room and just prayed,” he said, adding that he wishes he was still in Las Vegas to help out in the wake of the attack.

As Faithwire previously reported, Beddoes first made national headlines in 2015 after a deadly car wreck unfolded on a frigid March day. Beddoes, who serves on the Spanish Fork Police Department, recalled in a past interview with Faithwire how he and three of his fellow cops heard a mysterious voice at the scene — one that, to this day, has no natural explanation.

“We all heard an adult female voice, which was a calm voice saying, ‘Help me, help me,’” he recalled. “This voice really guided us to the car and gave us hope that whoever was calling out was alive.”

But here’s the crazy part: Once the officers reached the vehicle, they quickly realized that the adult female inside had been deceased for quite some time (later, they found out she died on impact 14 hours earlier). That said, the woman’s daughter, an 18-month-old baby named Lily, was still alive — yet unconscious — in the back seat of the vehicle.

Hear him discuss his story below:

Beddoes and his team saved the child, but never solved where the mysterious voice came from. He went on to write a book titled, “Proof of Angels” where he discussed the issue in-depth.

Las Vegas Shooter Found With Same Bomb-Making Materials As The OKC Bomber

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Monday that ammonium nitrate, a chemical compound used to make homemade bombs was found in the Las Vegas shooter’s car.

Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on concert-goers in Las Vegas, Nev., Sunday night killing at least 59 and injuring more than 500 people.

This is a new discovery in the investigation of the horrific shooting and comes after details emerged of how Paddock opened fire from the 32nd story of the Mandalay Bay hotel at 10:08 p.m. local time, into a crowd of 22,000 gathered at a Jason Aldean concert, and then killed himself. (RELATED: Deadliest Mass Shooter In US History Identified)

Ammonium nitrate is a high-nitrogen fertilizer and was also found in the well-known Oklahoma City bombing in April of 1995 when a truck-bomb explosion blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Okla., leaving 168 people deceased and hundreds injured.

Authorities identified Paddock of Mesquite, Nev., as the suspected gunman in the massacre. SWAT officers found him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after breaching the door to his hotel room.

Investigators have yet to determine a motive in the shooting.

America is reeling again. Families have been ripped apart and individual lives have been torn apart. One day we’re reeling from devastating hurricanes, the next day we’re torn apart by racial divisions, the next day we’re ripped apart by the worst mass shooting in our history. The pain is palpable, the shock tangible. Can America still be healed?

At the time of this writing, no one knows what motivated Stephen Paddock to launch his murderous attack during an outdoor, country music concert in Las Vegas. What we do know is that he was “one of us” – not a terrorist from a foreign country and, to our knowledge, not shouting “Allahu Akbar” (although ISIS stated that he was a recent convert to Islam and claims him as one of its soldiers).

As his brother Eric said, “He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something, he was just a guy. He has no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know. This wasn’t a terror attack.”

He added, “Mars just fell into the Earth. We’re completely dumbfounded.”

And who can imagine the loss and shock of the surviving victims and the families of those killed? Who can make sense of this? And can anyone with a conscience claim that the people mowed down at this country music concert were worse sinners than the rest of us? That they specially deserved to be slaughtered in cold blood? God forbid.

I’m sure that gun control will be a hot topic in the days ahead.

Does the Second Amendment guarantee our right to own assault rifles or machine guns, weapons that can murder 50-plus people and injure hundreds of others in a matter of minutes?

But to focus on this now is to miss the point, just as it was a mistake to focus on questions of global warming during the hurricanes (although these are certainly debates we will have).

No, we must ask bigger questions at a time of such agony: Why are these tragedies occurring? Where is God in the midst of this? How can America be healed?

What do YOU think? How long will the Las Vegas massacre pull America together? Sound off in today’s WND poll

During the devastating hurricanes, some claimed these natural disasters were judgments from God while others claimed that they were the result of man-made global warming. Some even suggested that they we were being judged because we elected Donald Trump as our president (really!).

What I sensed in my own heart as I prayed was the voice of appeal, the voice of mercy, the voice of the Healer ready to mend and restore. It was God saying to us through the storms, “America, you need Me!”

Today, as I look at the bodies of the bloodied victims lying lifeless on the concert grounds, as I see others running in terror and still others falling wounded, I hear that same voice, except this time calling out more loudly, “America, you need Me!”

It’s the same voice I hear as our nation is torn apart by racial strife and division, the same voice I hear as our inner cities are ravaged by gangs, the same voice I hear as baby parts are thrown into dumpsters behind abortion mills.

God is calling out to us, “America, you need Me!”

There is no political solution.

There is no social band aid that can be applied.

Trump calls Las Vegas shooting 'an act of pure evil'

Garance Franke-Ruta
Senior Politics Editor,Yahoo News•October 2, 2017

WASHINGTON — President Trump condemned the mass shooting in Las Vegas in remarks from the White House Monday morning, calling it “an act of pure evil.” He offered words of praise for the courage and quick actions of first responders and sought to provide words of comfort for grieving families.

At least 58 were killed and hundreds injured in the shooting at a country music concert outside the Mandalay Bay casino and resort on the Last Vegas strip late Sunday night, making it the worst mass shooting in the United States in modern history. Trump said he had directed flags be flown at half-staff in the memory of the dead and would travel to Las Vegas Wednesday to meet with law enforcement and victims of the attack and their families.

“I want to thank the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and all of the first responders for their courageous efforts and for helping to save the lives of so many,” the president said. “The speed with which they acted is miraculous and prevented further loss of life. To have found the shooter so quickly after the first shots were fired is something for which we will always be thankful and grateful.”

He offered words of comfort for family and friends of the victims, saying that he and Melania were praying for them.

“Hundreds of our fellow citizens are now morning the sudden loss of a loved one, a parent, a child, a brother or sister,” Trump said. “We cannot fathom their pain, we cannot imagine their loss. To the families of the victims, we are praying for you and we are here for you and we ask God to help see you through this very dark period.”

“To the wounded who are now recovering in hospitals,” he continued, We are praying for your full and speedy recovery. We pledge to you our support from this day forward.”

The president, speaking in measured tones, called for national unity and spoke of the bonds between citizens.

“In moments of tragedy and horror America comes together as one — and it always has,” he said. “We call upon the bonds that unite us, our faith, our family and shared values. We call upon the bonds of citizenship, the ties of community and the comfort of our common humanity.

“Our unity cannot be shattered by evil. Our bonds cannot be broken by violence. And though we feel such great anger at the senseless murder of our fellow citizens it is our love that defines us today—and always will, forever.”

ISIS claims Vegas shooter converted to Islam, Soldier of Islamic State
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a shooting that killed at least 50 people and wounded over 400 in Las Vegas early on Monday, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago. “The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls

to target states of the coalition,” the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East. “The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added.

Breaking: Identity of Las Vegas Shooter Revealed – Here’s What We Know
http://conservativefighters.com/news/breaking-identity-las-vegas-shooter-revealed-heres-know/
More than 50 people were killed and more than 400 injured late Sunday night in a mass shooting during a concert on the Las Vegas Strip. Here’s what we know about Stephen Paddock, the man police identified as the shooter:
Paddock, 64, is from Mesquite, Nevada, authorities said. Police believe Paddock may have killed himself just as police stormed his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. From there it’s believed he fired off “hundreds” of shots, targeting a crowd of 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival below.
The Mesquite Police Department had no prior contact with him, according to spokesman Quinn Averett, nor had there been any calls to Paddock’s home in Mesquite, which is about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Paddock’s home is being searched. Officials did not know how long he had been living in the area.
At least 10 rifles were found in his hotel room, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said at a news conference.

Paddock had been at the Mandalay Bay since Thursday, Lombardo said.

BREAKING NEWS: ISIS Claim Responsibility for Vegas Shooting and Say the Gunman ‘Converted to Islam Months Ago’
http://conservativefighters.com/news/breaking-news-isis-claim-responsibility-vegas-shooting-say-gunman-converted-islam-months-ago/
ISIS has has claimed responsibility the mass shooting in Las Vegas where 50 people were killed and more than 406 wounded, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.

The shooter was 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock, a resident of nearby Mesquite, Nevada, who opened fire on the festival taking place at Las Vegas Village from a room across the street in the Mandalay Bay Hotel at 10:08pm.

“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.

“The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added.

It is still not known what kind of weapon Paddock used, but officials said more than 10 rifles were recovered from his hotel room.

Officials were searching for Marilou Danley, whom they identified as a companion of the suspect, Lombardo said.

Just before 7 a.m. ET, police tweeted that they had “located the female person of interest.” Lombardo said Danley was located out of the country and was not believed to be involved in the shooting. He added that Paddock was utilizing some of her identification.

Authorities described having found several weapons in Paddock’s hotel room after the shooting.

Country Music Star Describes The Graphic Carnage — ‘That’s When You Knew It Wasn’t The Pyrotechnics’ [VIDEO]
http://conservativefighters.com/news/country-music-star-describes-graphic-carnage-thats-knew-wasnt-pyrotechnics-video/
Country music star Jake Owen described the horrifying scene of the Las Vegas massacre Monday morning to CBS.

Owen talked about the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history over the phone with CBS News, and the details are downright horrifying.

He told CBS the following:
We started just running in any direction because you didn’t know where it was coming from. At one point I was kind of sitting on the ground behind a car with about 20 other people crouched down behind a car. And just the fear in everybody’s eyes, but yet, the feeling of everybody looking around to make sure somebody was okay.

I’ve just never experienced anything like this before. … I thought it was perhaps the pyrotechnics then I realized it literally sounded like a fully-automatic uzi or machine gun. That’s when you knew it was not the pyrotechnics and it was somebody shooting a fully automatic rifle.

Shooting on Las Vegas Strip kills more than 50, hundreds wounded

Shooting on Las Vegas Strip kills more than 50, hundreds wounded

https://worldisraelnews.com/shooting-las-vegas-strip-kills-2-wounds-dozens/?
A shooter fired into a crowd of concert-goers in Las Vegas, murdering at least 50 and wounding hundreds. The nature of the incident is still unclear.
At least 50 people were killed and over 400 wounded during a shooting at an outdoor music festival on the Las Vegas Strip late Sunday.
From the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas Strip casino, Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on an outdoor music festival, killing at least 50 people — including two off-duty police officers — and wounding more than 200, officials said early Monday.
Country music star Jason Aldean was performing on stage when the shots began ringing out Sunday night at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.
Officers confronted the suspect on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street from the concert and he was killed, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said. Authorities did not release the suspect’s name but said he is a local resident.
Concert-goers reported hearing what they described as automatic gun fire during the shooting.
Lombardo said they believe this was a “lone wolf” attack but said they were looking for a roommate of the dead suspect as a person of interest.

The two slain off-duty officers were attending the concert, Lombardo said. Another off-duty officer was in critical condition and another was wounded, Lombardo said.

Several officers from California were attending the music festival. A Bakersfield Police officer was shot and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

‘Beyond Horrific’

Hours after the shooting, Aldean posted on Instagram that he and his crew were safe and said the shooting was “beyond horrific.”

Kodiak Yazzie, 36, said he and his girlfriend were watching Aldean’s performance when he heard what sounded like fireworks. The music stopped temporarily and started up again before another round of pops sent the performers ducking for cover and fleeing the stage.

Thousands fled as bursts of gunfire could be heard for more than five minutes, Yazzie said.

Jose Baggett, 31, a Las Vegas resident, said he and a friend were in the lobby of the Luxor hotel-casino — directly north of the festival — when people began running. He said people were crying and as he and his friend walked away, they encountered police checkpoints where officers were carrying shotguns and assault rifles.

“There were armored personnel vehicles, SWAT vehicles, ambulances, and at least a half-mile of police cars,” Baggett said.

Witnesses said they saw multiple victims and dozens of ambulances near the concert venue. Some attendees later huddled in the basement of the nearby Tropicana hotel-casino.

Officers carrying assault rifles ran into the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

Authorities shut down part of the Las Vegas Strip and Interstate 15. Flights were temporarily halted at McCarran International Airport because of the shooting, the airport said on its verified Twitter account.

The witness, 21, told local news: “She had been messing with a lady in front of her and telling her she was going to die, that we were all going to die.

“They escorted her out to make her stop messing around with all the other people, but none of us knew it was going to be serious.”

She described the lady as Hispanic. The lady was escorted from the venue along with a man.

The unnamed witness, who was attending the event on her 21st birthday, described the pair as short, both around 5 ft 5ins to 5ft 6ins tall, and looked like “everyday people”.
