Release FISA Memo to American Public


John R. Houk

© January 21, 2018

 

As of the moment I’m typing this, Schumer and Pelosi have been leading the Dems in a government shutdown in extortion for absolute amnesty for Illegal Aliens while giving ZERO that the Republican majority has electorally promised.

 

I see this as deflection for two things the Dems fear:

 

1. The Dem promised Armageddon over Trump tax-cuts NEVER came; indeed, a booming economy has arisen in the stock market and for middle class employees pay raises and/or bonuses have mushroomed to benefit family living.

 

2. The worst Dem fear is news that will undoubtedly affect the 2018 mid-term election to the benefit of the GOP. The basis of Dem fear is a 4-page mem exposing criminal corruption by FBI/DOJ Dem-favoring agents planning a fake evidence against President Trump.

In the first instance, even after lying Dem propaganda, the evidence economic prosperity is too huge for the MSM to cover-up from the public.

 

In the second instance, the lying Dem propaganda machine is being fired up to discredit the 4-page FISA Memo as either distorted or based on mitigating other evidence making to the Memo much too difficult for the stupid public (Dem thinking – NOT GOP!) to comprehend correctly.

 

ERGO, if you are stupid join the Dems in preventing the public from knowing how corrupt the American Left has made agencies created to keep harm from the public. IF you a part of the brilliant public of WE THE PEOPLE and desire a voice on how government is operated, then DEMAND your Congressman to release the FISA Memo and make the appropriate vote in November 2018.

 

How to locate Congressman of your District: Use this link – https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative – enter your Zip Code. (H/T Matt Forney)

 

Your Zip will take your Congressman providing snail mail address and phone number. If you look for the envelope symbol and click it you will be taken to an electronic method of contacting your Representative (either a contact form or email. Matt Forney provides a sample script for speaking to your Congressman or the Congressman’s phone gatekeeper.

 

Below is a Facebook post that inspired my thoughts. Below that is a couple of Gateway Pundit posts. The Gateway Pundit is following the FISA Memo issue closely. I suggest you visit often.

Tick..Tock..Tick..Tock. America, are you ready for a great shock?? No. It’s not about the expected Schumer Shutdown. I speak of the FISA Memo that will in short time be released to the public who have a right to know. It’s called transparency. Those on the Intel Committee who have read are shocked by the abuse of power that they did see. No one in the TYRANT’S regime ever thought that this four page document would ever see the light of day. Apparently those who were part of this criminal conspiracy never heard that CRIME DOES NOT PAY.

 

In the criminal syndicate that is run by Bill and Dastardly Hillary they always seem to get away with any and all accountability. This time it will be a tad different. They and those in the FBI will not get away free. You can comprise your list of those who will be tainted. Never since the days of Watergate has there been a scandal like this. We are told that the scope of this is far and wide. Before long we will have a picture before us that is fully painted. It is said that assumptions should not be made for when you do it can lead to trouble. In the DEEP STATE everyone thought Hillary would surely win. That was the prevailing view in the environs that is the DC bubble.

 

In a Clinton Presidency everything would have been hidden. But she didn’t win and now a whole of disgusting characters can very well wind up in prison. How ironic it is to find that everyone who boasted about their being not a whiff of scandal in the previous regime will now see exposed one that shows the scope of criminality heretofore never seen. You and I are certainly not surprised to find the eight years of Trump’s predecessor was far from clean and pristine.

 

It is unfathomable to think that in the days ahead as more and more details are released that this story can be ignored. I am confident that justice will be done. A lack of it we, as a country, can ill afford. My only concern is this Attorney General That we have in place is so weak and hesitant. If he dares to be intimidated by the Democrats from pursuing these alleged criminals we would all find it utterly abhorrent. Can we trust his assistant AG. I certainly doubt he can be trusted. One more thing. If this Mueller Investigation is not ended post haste you will have an America in a fit of rage and thoroughly disgusted!!

Sara Carter: Explosive FISA Memo Could Be Released to the Public THIS WEEK! (VIDEO)

On Saturday Rep. Dave Joyce announced Saturday that the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSIC) had launched the process to release the explosive FBI-FISA-Russia classified memo.

 

 

 

The 4 page memo contains evidence that the Obama administration used FISA warrants to spy on both the Trump campaign and transition team — charges Obama officials have long denied.

 

On Sunday morning investigative reporter Sara Carter told FOX and Friends Weekend that the memo could be released to the public this week.

 

Sara Carter on Fox News-FISA Memo

 

Sara Carter: The House Intelligence Committee is going to hold another vote. This vote will be made for the public… They’re sure it’s going to pass because Republicans are going to pass on the party line to make this available to the public. Then the memo will go to the president where the president will have five days to decide whether or not to declassify the memo. And what I’m being told from my sources he will declassify that memo for the public. They’re actually hoping the memo gets declassified very soon, the latest I’ve heard is the end of the month but the soonest could be anytime this week.

 

It ought to be an exciting week then!

[Blog Editor: The following is a transcript of the video that appears originally at Youtube post but is copy & pasted at the Gateway Pundit. I’m using the GP version because I like the emphasis.]

 

Partial transcript provided by Grabien:

 

CABRERA: “Let me ask you about the Russia investigation. I can’t have you here and not. Especially given how much we talked about it in the first year of the presidency. And now if you turn on any conservative media, they keep talking about this Nunez memo, the chairman of the house intelligence committee, that he’s put out there and many Republicans have taken a look at it and they want it made public. Can you tell us what exactly is it?”

 

SCHIFF: “It is essentially a set of talking points that the Republican Intel staff drafted. Based on the highly classified materials which most of the Republican members were forced to acknowledge. They’ve not even read. So they don’t know how distorted these talking points are. But as part of the narrative they want to push out. Interestingly enough, they’ve made common cause once again with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It’s in a redux of the campaign. We have Assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hash tag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what’s driving this. And that is –”

 

CABRERA: “Why not allow peel to look at it and let Americans make the decision for themselves about whether it’s useful information or not?”

 

SCHIFF: “Well, because the American people unfortunately don’t have the underlying materials and therefore they can’t see how distorted and misleading this document is.The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller to circle the wagons for the White House. And that’s a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the bureau, but more than that, it’s a disservice to the country.”

 

In other words, Schiff believes Americans are too stupid to understand the memo.

 

As The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila reported, Schiff is in full blown panic mode as release of the memo looms. The Democrat lawmaker is fiercely working to block Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes from exposing “shocking” FISA abuses that took place during the 2016 presidential election.

KP Govt. Closed Six Churches Amid the U.S. placing Pakistan on Special Watch List

KP Govt. Closed Six Churches Amid the U.S. placing Pakistan on Special Watch List

 

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan (formerly NWFP)

 

By SHAMIM MASIH

Sent 1/19/2018 9:03 PM

 

ISLAMABAD: The Khyber Pakhtunkhawa [alternate spelling: Pakhtunkhwa] (KPK) province in Pakistan has sealed at least six Churches in district Abbottabad in the name of security after the United States placed Pakistan name in the Special Watch List. The officials claimed that only non-registered churches are closed. On the other hand, the KP govt. has announced monthly honorarium for 20, 000 Muslim clerics in the province.

 

According to the details the district administration at Abbottabad has officially ordered to close as many as six churches in the name of security and said the churches being established in the rental houses and non-registered are closed due to security risk. The District Police Officer (DPO) Syed Ashfaq said in his official statement that those churches have been sealed which had not been registered with the Auqaf Department.

 

According to 27th Convention of the United Nations, Pakistan is liable to take steps for the safety, protection of minorities and women rights and religious freedom in the country. And on January 04, 2018, the US placed Pakistan name in the list of those countries which are alleged violating minorities rights and religious freedom. Being on the Watch List means Pakistan is a step away from included in the “Countries of Particular Concern” list. The list includes “governments that have engaged in or tolerated systematic, ongoing and egregious violations of religious freedom.”

 

In the meantime, on January 8, 2018, KP govt. proved it that religious minorities are not free to perform their religious services at their homes and even cannot worship in the rental houses they live in. To a rough estimate more than 10000 Christians live in and around Hazara Division and 5000 in Abbottabad district. And many of them are bared to perform their ceremonial and routine religious services.

 

Meanwhile, the Christian community across the country have termed the move as unjustified. Father Arshad Nayer, the local priest from Roman Catholic denomination said, “it would give a bad message if the government continued to seal worship places of religious minorities over minor issues.” Instead of providing security to the said churches the administration is on to close them, and it is violation of religious freedom. The poor Christians do not have enough resources to construct independent new church buildings, he added.

 

Pastor Christopher Shakar, one victim [of a closed Church – perhaps], said that his father Akram Shakar has started the Emmanuel Pentecostal Church (EPC) in 1985, and now he has taken this responsibility for seven years. On the celebration of the Christmas, the district administration has interrupted during the sermon and asked to close the service. This is violation of religious freedom given in the constitution of country. Another church, Assemblies of God has been established some 50 years back and now Pastor in charge Saleem Ghori is running it in his own house is also closed under the said so called security risk.

 

Chairman Community Development Foundation (CDF) Basharat Khokher strongly condemned the move by the KP govt. and termed it prejudicial behavior toward religious minorities in Pakistan. Talking on religious freedom, he said that the step taken by KP govt. is discriminatory and biased; the KP government is paying billions of rupees to Muslim clerics in the province and shutting down Christian worship places. From this move, it clearly shows that there is no religious freedom in the country and government imposed restriction and tries to snub the rights of minorities.

 

When asked Shireen Mazari, a senior Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI) leader and member parliament, she said PTI is very clear in giving rights to minorities and not in the favor of closing any worship places. PTI central secretariat has sought written reply from CM KP Parvez Khattak on the matter of closure of 6 churches in Abbottabad district. The CM has been asked to explain the causes and motives leading to closure of churches. In a statement chairman PTI Imran Khan said that all the minorities enjoy full freedom of religion under the constitution of Pakistan. He said the PTI believes in full freedom of minorities, adding that such steps by the provincial government create a negative impression in the international community.

Hannity & Carter Have Facts on Deep State Crimes


John R. Houk

© January 19, 2018

A few days ago, ex-President and probable treasonous criminal Barack Hussein Obama called fans of Fox News are people from a different planet. The thing that Obama and his cadres can’t stand is that Planet Fox is not intimidated by the Left and share verified info that exposes the nefarious Left.

 

Yes, I have had some issues with Fox News because sometimes they report a Left-Wing meme. You know, I have concluded those discrepancies I’ve disagreed with can probably be chalked up to Fox News attempting to offer the Left a voice in the name of balanced reporting.

 

I don’t know if you have noticed that when a Conservative appears on MSM news outlets the Leftists gang up by spewing propaganda attempting to shame the Conservative into silence. If that doesn’t work, then Left cuts out the mike not allowing the facts to disseminate the MSM listeners.

 

When a Leftie appears on Fox News (and it happens all the time), the program host usually allows the Leftist to spew his/her lies until they become too egregious in which case an interruption follows to straiten out the facts. When the Leftist will have nothing to do with the facts by trying to shout down the program host, so the facts don’t contradict the lies, then and only then is there a cut-the-mike situation on Fox News.

 

Sean Hannity has quickly risen to the top of my favorite Conservative hosts on Fox News. Very few Leftists have the courage to face Hannity because he is an in-your-face kind of Conservative.

 

Hannity has been incredible in reporting the corruption and nefarious acts going on to end President Trump’s Presidency. He has nearly been a lone wolf in his aggressive opinion based reporting that uses documentation and credible sources to form those hard-hitting opinions.

 

Now that documentation appears imminent to be released to the public demonstrating just how far the Dems are willing to go to use political lying in a political coup against President Trump, most Americans should begin to give Hannity some hero cred. That is unless the American cannot comprehend the truth due to becoming brainwashed by the Leftist MSM.

 

After the facts become public, you can measure if you’ve been brainwashed or not.

 

Here is some Fox News (on in the case I’m presenting – Fox Business News) and Hannity reporting on some of the documentation exposing a corrupt government in the FBI and DOJ. (Which I hope leads exposing corruption in Crooked Hillary’s State Department and Obama’s operation of the Executive Branch.)

WOW! Sara Carter Reveals FISA Memo Is So “Explosive” That It Could END Mueller Investigation

 

By Joshua Caplan

January 18, 2018

Gateway Pundit

 

The House Intel panel’s passage of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s motion to release the FISA abuse memo to fellow House members has rocked Washington, D.C.

 

Lawmakers from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) have called for the classified memo’s immediate release. According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe once and for all.

 

Sara Carter: Comey, McCabe, Mueller & Rosenstein

 

Sara Carter reports:

 

A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. […]

 

Congressional members are hopeful that the classified information will be declassified and released to the public.

 

“We probably will get this stuff released by the end of the month,” stated a congressional member, who asked not to be named.

 

But the government official, who viewed the document said “it will be tough for a lot of people to see this and especially the media, which has been attempting to deemphasize the dossier. It’s going to punch a hole in their collusion narrative.”

 

On Thursday, the House Intelligence Committee quietly voted to make available to fellow House members “a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program,” reports Fox News’ Chad Pergram. Rep Lee Zeldin (R-NY) is demanding the secret memo be released immediately.

 

 

 

“Just read the classified doc @HPSCI re FISA abuse. I’m calling for its immediate public release w/relevant sourced material. The public must have access ASAP! #Transparency.”

 

 

 

“Releasing this classified info doesn’t compromise good sources & methods. It reveals the feds’ reliance on bad sources & methods,” added Zeldin.

 

As The Gateway Pundit‘s Jim Hoft reported, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined Liz Claman on FOX Business Network to discuss the FISA abuse report.

 

Rep. Gaetz told Claman:

 

“The allegations contained in this important intelligence document go to the very foundations of our democracy and they require an immediate release to the public in my opinion.”

 

 

 

Carter’s story comes amid reports former White House Strategist Steve Bannon has reached a deal to meet with Mueller, rather than appear before a grand jury.

Blumenthal, Crooked Hillary, FBI & Steele Dossier Collusion?

Hillary Clinton confidant was interviewed by FBI in connection to the salacious dossier

 

By Sara Carter

January 17, 2018

SaraCarter.com

 

A close friend, advisor and confidant of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was allegedly interviewed by the FBI in connection with the controversial dossier that was used ‘in part’ as evidence by the bureau to obtain a warrant to investigate members of President Trump’s campaign team, according to several sources who spoke to this reporter.

 

Sidney Blumenthal, a former journalist and a close friend of Clinton, was  interviewed by the FBI in 2016 regarding the dossier that alleged Trump colluded with Russia, the sources stated. Department of Justice officials, however, declined to comment on Blumenthal or the dossier.

 

FBI officials declined to comment.

 

Blumenthal did not return a phone call seeking comment.

 

Blumenthal worked as a White House aide for Bill Clinton, and later worked with the Clinton Foundation after being denied a role by Obama Administration officials with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to reports.  According to Politico he was being paid $10,000 a month by the Clinton Foundation.

 

In 2015, emails released by the State Department showed the extensive and ongoing working relationship between Clinton and Blumenthal. The emails revealed that then Secretary of State Clinton would seek Blumenthal’s advice on foreign policy issues and his role appeared to be more of an advisor than friend, according to the emails.  Blumenthal regularly sent Hillary Clinton “vaguely sourced” “intelligence cable style” briefings while she was Secretary of State.

 

Earlier this month, members of the House Intelligence Committee went to the Justice Department to review the FBI and DOJ documents requested last August by Chairman Devin Nunes, as reported earlier.

 

The Washington Post revealed in October that the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign the research firm Fusion GPS for the dossier that was put together by former British spy Christopher Steele.

 

In April, CNN reported that the dossier was used to monitor communications of Carter Page, who volunteered as a national security advisor with the Trump campaign for a short period of time. But by December, another story by the New York Times suggested that the inquiry into the Trump campaign and its alleged ties to Russia began with George Papadopoulos,  a former foreign policy advisor to Trump campaign.

 

After the 2016 presidential election, Blumenthal told Dutch TV Nieuwsuur that Clinton’s loss to Trump “was the result of a cabal of right-wing agents of the FBI in the New York office attached to Rudy Giuliani, who was a member of Trump’s campaign.”

 

“I think it’s not unfair to call it a coup,” said Blumenthal.

 

“A coup, even?” the reporter said.

 

Blumenthal added, “yeah, a coup d’etat.”

SARA CARTER: Clinton Foundation “Hatchet Man” Grilled By FBI In Connection To Steele Dossier

Last November, Hillary Clinton infamously admitted on “The Daily Show” with Trevor Noah that her campaign paid for the discredited document.

 

Sara Carter – Crooked Hillary

 

Sara Carter [Blog Editor: Link removed or changed] reports:

 

A close friend, advisor and confidant of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was allegedly interviewed by the FBI in connection with the controversial dossier that was used ‘in part’ as evidence by the bureau to obtain a warrant to investigate members of President Trump’s campaign team, according to several sources who spoke to this reporter.

Commenting on Carter’s story, Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton called Blumenthal a Clinton Foundation “hatchet man.”

 

 

 

The Steele dossier saga may take yet another interesting turn tomorrow, as the House Intelligence Committee readies a vote to release the transcriptions of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s interview.

 

“If vote to release, will add to record already released by Senate Judiciary. The more, the better,” tweeted York.

 

 

 

Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the discredited Steele dossier, is still investigating alleged ties between President Trump and Russia, reported Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter this week.

Believe Mahmoud Abbas – Believe a Liar


 

John R. Houk

© January 16, 2018

 

Mahmoud Abbas is the President of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). Abbas gave a two-hour in Ramallah – located in Judea-Samaria (West Bank to Arabs and much of the globe believing Israel is illegally occupying Arab land) – in response to President Trump notifying the world the U.S. Embassy is moving from Tel Aviv to Israel’s Capital City Jerusalem.

 

As you can guess, Abbas was less than pleased. The speech was chock full of historical revisionism and blatant lies pertaining Israel’s homeland and the existence of the fake people known as Palestinians. Arab domination of the Jewish Homeland didn’t begin until the mid-600s AD (yup, I’m a Christian preferring Anno Domini over Common Era – C.E.).

Media Whitewashes Abbas’ Revisionism and Rejectionism

 

By PESACH BENSON

Honest Reporting

 

Mahmoud Abbas’ two-hour address to the central committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization was the diplomatic equivalent of giving the finger to Israel, the US and peace prospects.

 

The speech was expected to articulate the Palestinian leadership’s response to Trump’s Jerusalem declaration and threatened cuts of aid for refugees.

 

But given how long the talk was, it must have been a challenge for reporters to focus on sorting out the “news” from the “rambling.” Indeed, the PA president rejected US mediation, blamed Israel for the “death” of the Oslo accords, and dropped tidbits such as someone offering the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Dis to become the capital of a Palestinian state. (Abbas didn’t say who made the offer.)

 

But there was a bigger picture that the mainstream media snoozed through. What most journalists would consider the boring, long-winded digressions were actually part of a bigger pattern of historical revisionism and rejection of any place for the Jews in the Mideast.

 

Sign HonestReporting’s petition to the Foreign Press Association in Israel demanding reporters and editors give a fuller picture of Palestinian rejectionism and refusal to recognize Israel’s right to exist.

 

The Speech

 

The Ramallah audience of PLO cadres, VIPs and the foreign press was regaled with Abbas’ theories of how Israel was founded — not by Jews — but by European “colonialists,” with plans going as far back as Oliver Cromwell in 1653. He accused Israel of sending drugs to Palestinian kids. He ridiculed US Ambassador Nikki Haley’s high heels.

 

Theodor Herzl

 

And Abbas fabricated a quote to claim that Theodor Herzl, the father of modern Zionism, sought to exterminate Palestinians.

 

“We must wipe out the Palestinians from Palestine so that Palestine will be a land without a people for a people without a land.”

 

Abbas also claimed among other things, that the Jews of Europe chose to remain and die at the hands of the Nazis, that Jews from Iraq and Yemen were brought to Israel against their will, and that Israel was formed as “a colonial project that has nothing to do with Judaism” to safeguard European interests.

 

The PA chief also hurled an epithet at President Donald Trump, saying in Arabic, Yekhreb Beitak, which means “May God destroy your home.” A Palestinian media professional explained to me that home refers not just to the physical house, but the household — its people and possessions. It’s a term used when two people are in a dispute, and although Arabs may use the term somewhat casually among themselves, it’s not a line one would use in a diplomatic setting. That would explain why the Associated Press called it a “jarring” language.

 

It’s not the first time Abbas twisted history for his own purposes. His doctoral thesis, written as a student in Moscow, argued that the killed “only” one million Jews, that the Zionist leaders collaborated with the Nazis, and that Jewish leaders inflated the Holocaust’s death toll to six million for their own advantage.

 

But the overall thrust of the speech was to erase Jewish ties to the land of Israel.

 

The Coverage

 

Too many media reports whitewashed Abbas’ coverage. Perhaps editors didn’t attach enough importance to the speech to give their correspondents a longer word count, which might account for the short, sanitized reports by ReutersBBC NewsCNN and Sky News.

 

Other news services touched on Abbas’ rant, but didn’t delve into the significance, such as AFPThe IndependentIrish Times and the Financial Times.

 

While the New York Times gave a sense of the PA chairman’s verbosity, the paper unfortunately didn’t fact-check Abbas, giving a pass to the false quote.

Mahmoud Abbas

 

“Testing his audience’s attention, Mr. Abbas also gave a lengthy history lecture reaching back to the 17th century, saying that Oliver Cromwell had first proposed shipping European Jews to the Holy Land, before tracing the beginning of Zionism to what he called the 19th-century journalist and activist Theodor Herzl’s efforts to “wipe out Palestinians from Palestine.”

 

“This is a colonial enterprise that has nothing to do with Jewishness,” Mr. Abbas said. “The Jews were used as a tool under the concept of the promised land — call it whatever you want. Everything has been made up.”

 

Indeed, Abbas has made everything up.

 

Can you imagine the headlines if an Israeli head of state denied the existence of the Palestinian people? Or fabricated quotes?

 

While I didn’t see any news coverage of the speech in The Guardian, an Ian Black commentary fretted over how the speech would play into the hands of right-wing Israelis. And if I didn’t know any better, I’d say the Irish Independent took Associated Press reports one and two and scrubbed them.

 

Credit the Daily Telegraph and Washington Post for acknowledging Abbas being Abbas and getting fresh quotes from analysts to provide some meaning.

 

Palestinians may see Abbas as defiantly throwing down the gauntlet while Israelis see Abbas on the verge of imploding.

 

If there’s going to be peace, we need the press to step up and enlighten us on what Mahmoud Abbas really stands for.

Las Vegas Shooter Conspiracies CONFIRMED By FBI Release?!

 

By Andrew West

January 15, 2018

From the moment that the news broke on that fateful October night, the Las Vegas shooting incident has been spawning a never-ending nest of new questions.

 

According to police, shooter Stephen Paddock was a retired, multimillionaire real estate investor and avid gambler.  His high roller status had Paddock on a first name basis in many of Sin City’s more luxurious locales, including the Mandalay Bay, where the soon-to-be murderer was set up in a lavish 32nd floor suite overlooking the Las Vegas Strip and a country music festival taking place across the street.

 

Then, again according to the partial narrative released by authorities, Paddock turned this glamorous hotel room into an elaborate sniper’s nest from which he would unleash countless rounds into the country music fans below.  When it was all said and done, 58 concert goers had lost their lives, Paddock was dead, and police were stumped.  Paddock left behind no note, no manifesto, and no clue as to what his motivation in the killing may have been.

 

The investigation that followed was largely off the radar, as police and federal agents shielded their work from the public eye.

 

Given the enormous brutality of the attack itself, and the silent treatment that the police were giving the media, the internet soon got to work constructing a number of bizarre conspiracy theories around the incident.  The most prevalent of these theories revolved around Paddock being an illegal arms dealer who was summoned to the luxury suite to await a high level deal for the cache of weapons he had with him.  In this story, we are led to believe that the “buyers” Paddock was dealing with were actually terrorists of some fashion, who then killed Paddock, unleashed Hell on Las Vegas, and magically escaped.

 

While this far fetched nonsense has laid dormant in the darker corner of the internet for weeks, a strange revelation in a newly released FBI document seems to indicated that Paddock may in fact have been an illegal arms dealer.

 

“One affidavit includes email exchanges between centralpark1@live.com, a Microsoft account that FBI authorities believe belonged to Paddock, and centralpark4804@gmail.com. (It is unclear if the FBI knows who is responsible for the latter account.) The messages were sent on July 6, 2017.

 

“The affidavit reads:

 

“‘…[centralpark1@live.com] sent an email to centralpark4804@gmail.com which read, “try an ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area,” Later the day, an email was received back from centralpark4804@gmail.com to [centralpark1@live.com] that read, “we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try.” And lastly, [centralpark1@live.com sent an email to centralpark4804@gmail.com that read, “for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.” Investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack that occurred at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.’

 

“The exchanges took place nearly three months before the onslaught. And CNN reports that ‘investigators at the time of the filing had been unable to determine if Paddock was sending emails between two accounts both belonging to himself, or was communicating with someone else.’”

 

The odd email addresses with “centralpark” included could be a clever ruse that Paddock was employing, or underground codes of the illegal arms trade.

 

The remaining bits of the story concocted by internet sleuths has yet to be corroborated in the slightest, leading many to believe that their guess regarding Paddock’s arms-dealing side job was just a lucky stab out of thin air.  Until we hear the final word from the FBI, however, few will be satisfied with the answers provided.
