The guy was in shadow government and this was a psy op. He had money rolling in and kept his social and family contacts to a minimum constantly travelling. Now he played video poker. He had a math background and worked for the IRS back in the 80s as well as the postal service. If this was recent you'd think he was in on identity theft. But what if he had access to technology that let him cheat the machines? Or maybe he just did work that gave him large amounts of cash and he had to have a way to explain how he got it, by gambling. You don't have a falling out with your girl friend and then send her 100K hoping she'll come back. He gave her that money to either keep quiet or to help support her once he was gone. He was a pilot and had two small planes. Drug or human trafficking?

According to Eric Paddock, his brother Stephen... he gambled for 20 plus years successfully.



The only way to do that would be by playing in poker tournaments, and he should have been known to others on that circuit if he was that successful. So where are the interviews of the other professional poker players?

Or were his winnings really a hidden way of paying him for illegal/covert services? In the same way a casino will pay off a mob boss by making sure he wins when he sits down at the tables.

Why? From what I know, most whales don't get involved with tournaments, preferring to just stick to high limit tables. He was apparently a successful land developer. That would give him more than enough capital to feed his gambling hobby.

Like 13 per cent of all US citizens.


- close contact with Muslim people/group


If you mean his girlfriend, she was from the Philippines, a nation which is 86 per cent Catholic (the fact that her maiden name was "Natividad" might have been a clue, since it means "Christmas"!)


- attended leftist political rallies


Disputed at present.

Nope, you sure don't.

the key idea us : Stephen Paddock Fits No Existing Terrorist Profile


perhaps the overweight, 64 y.o. self employed, well-to-do, professional gambler & real-estate trader was NOT the radical~Anarchist the general Pop-Culture is trying to create.

he was distanced from political issues & religious zeal, according to family & relationships...

I can only conclude he was in the final weeks of a Death Sentence only he & his Doctor were knowledgeable of

10 days before the 'shooting-fish-in-a-barrel' "Payback" he sent $100K to his trusted female friend, ergo this whole Saga was not a hasty & energy torrent exercise---No, the planned operation was well designed & planned...

the Party Animal, hedonists at the Concert across the parking lot, a proxy for the cause for his soon-to-be demise were going to get pay backs, well at least deserved pay-backs by like minded perverts he held responsible for his life termination dead-line approaching...


I did hear he was converted to Muslim some 30 years ago, then ISIS made loud noise he was radicalized by them...
none of that sounds right to me so far....

In the last three years alone, more than 200 reports about Paddock’s activities, particularly large transactions at casinos, have been filed with law enforcement authorities, ABC News was told.
While some of the reports centered around "suspicious activity," most were "currency transaction reports," which casinos are required to file with the Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network when a person withdraws or deposits more than $10,000 in cash. ...
In one case, Paddock recently won $40,000 on a slot machine, his brother, Eric Paddock, told The Associated Press.
"That’s the way he played," Eric Paddock said. .....
"He was a very consistent player," the source said. "The notion of his winning or losing $40,000 seems very much within his norm."


Interesting they don't say whether those reports indicate that Paddock was a winner or a loser. What happens if it turns out that Paddock was a consistent winner? Because Vegas ain't designed to have anybody be a consistent winner.

I really like the theory that Paddock was a gun runner, and this was a deal gone bad. It would explain what the weapons were doing there, and why he wired $100,000 to his girlfriend in the Phillipeans. The gambling was just a cover to explain where the money comes from. He doesn't fit the profile of a mass-murderer because he wasn't a mass murderer. But he does fit the profile of someone who earns a lot of money from suspicious sources.

The "Poker" they refer to is Video Poker.

Not regular poker where players play against other people.

The Video Poker games are "you against a computer".

Great. More bad news for Freedom and Democracy.

This guy was an investor for the ultra rich. Soon, everyone will be a target for the loony bin based on a hunch by some Esteemed, cough, corrupt law pushers. I can see where this is going.

I can understand some people throw a lot of money around in the casinos, but to keep on winning and winning, they just won't let you and you get watched very closely, in case you're cheating.There's cameras everywhere in all of them. He said his employment was gambling on the purchase of his home. He must have made his money selling real estate, had extra cash from that and went to the casinos breaking even. They would have kicked him out if he was cleaning house in there.

The gf is claiming she thought the 100k was to buy a house because he felt bad he broke up with her. She has to know more than she's letting on.

Law Enforcement is holding a Wednesday evening briefing, after meeting with President Trump in Las Vegas today. They sound very frustrated..and somewhat defensive. Can't say that I blame them at this point.

Paddock's girlfriend must not have known very much. They sounded more hopeful before talking to her today.

Doubt she wants to say much and become implicated and sent down for it.
Or she's guarding that money before it's seized.
I wonder if the victims family's can sue his estate?

Funny how she's saying the reason he gave her the money is a reason all based on her assumptions and brother Eric comes up with the exact same assumptions. Per his interview to day. I posted a few posts back FYI. Sounds more like a rehearsed and this is what you say to the FBI afterwards

I didn't hear anything on how the room was paid for in her name. If it ever really was.

Balding and paunchy, Paddock was the opposite of flashy. On his application, he said his income came from “gambling.” He gambled about $1 million a year, he told one of the agents.
And he paid cash for the house, the agents said — $369,022.


Any real investigation would put his wealth and how he got it under a microscope. But they just say "real estate" and that's supposed to explain everything? Well it explains nothing.

Early days yet. Financial investigations take a lot of time and effort. And if someone has been deliberately obfuscating their financial activity, they can be extremely complex.

I mean, this guy switched houses all the time, and he must have been doing that to throw people off his trail. If you have a dozen bank accounts and withdraw and deposit non-matching amounts of cash between them often enough, you can have investigators chasing their tails till they are due to retire.

And that's just the most basic way to muddy the waters (e.g., If you were really determined, you could have credit cards in the hands of trusted accomplices to create a misleading scatter of financial activity in locations other than your own).

The Las Vegas sheriff now says that Paddock had assistance with training and planning. They are going to focus on finding that person or group.

But they won't elaborate. Today is supposed to be the day when the sheriff promised to release a lot more information.

Info starting to leak out regarding what Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, told interviewers during her interrogation yesterday...

WASHINGTON — Marilou Danley, the woman investigators hoped would provide key details into the motive behind her boyfriend's deadly shooting attack, said she remembers him exhibiting symptoms such as lying in bed and moaning, according to two former FBI officials who have been briefed on the matter.

"She said he would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, 'Oh my God,'" one of the former officials said.

The other former official said Danley spoke about Paddock displaying "mental health symptoms."

Could be more fake news from the MSM, but if true, this behavior points to WHAT condition???
