Las Vegas Gunman Cruised to Jordan, United Arab Emirates

The crazed Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock, who murdered 58 people and wounded at least another 489, took 20 cruises that we know of so far, 9 were with his girlfriend Marilou Danley. The cruise ships most likely had casinos on board and he considered himself a professional gambler. The stops were interesting since some included foreign ports, many in Europe and the Middle East.

The cruises included stops in Spain, Italy, Greece, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, according to information provided by a law enforcement source who asked not to be identified because the source was not authorized to share information about the investigation. Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, accompanied him on nine of the cruises, CNN reported.

The stops in Jordan and the UAE are interesting because ISIS has now tripled down, insisting Paddock converted to Islam 6 months ago, taking the name, Abu Abd Abdulbar al-Ameriki.

Paddock’s lewd behavior

Paddock, a compulsive gambler, wasn’t a ‘whale’, one who bets in the millions, he was a ‘high roller’, placing hundred dollar bets.

He was known for other excesses such as accepting the prostitutes offered by the casinos along with glorious hotel rooms. That information comes from an Australian business man Adam Le Fevre who traveled with him on some of the trips. He said Paddock engaged in lewd behavior.

“He was very much a calculated person,” Le Fevre noted of Paddock’s gambling success. “Everything he did seemed to be planned with precision.”

Le Fevre added that Danley was jittery around him and he was condescending to her. This aligns with the comments by the Starbucks staff who had the same observations about the two of them.

LeFevre said he strongly believed in the 2nd Amendment and had a gun room in his house.

We didn’t need Le Fevre to tell us that.

The mystery deepens

There is another mystery concerning a phone charger with cell phones that did not match Paddock’s. Investigators are trying to find out if anyone else was in the room with Paddock.

NBC News also reported investigators recovered a notepad with numbers in it “significant to the gunman” and were attempting to determine their meaning.

The presence of the numbers was first reported by The New York Times, based on an interview with Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Paddock’s car, a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring, was found in the hotel parking garage and contained 50 pounds of Tannerite and two suitcases filled with hundreds of rounds of ammunition, according to information provided by the source.

There are also reports that Paddock shot into two fuel tanks within 2,000 feet of the hotel.

Some officials speculate that he might have been planning to use explosions as part of a getaway plan.

Other authorities suspect the Tannerite was intended for use in target practice or to make the car explode if fired upon, according to information provided by the CNN source.

Paddock is said to have been in possession of tracer rounds which leave a trail, aiding precision.

Authorities can’t come up with a motive but if he was a psychopath, he would commit a crime like this simply to hurt and manipulate people. People shouldn’t take his note claiming it wasn’t suicide too seriously either. Psychopaths like to mess with peoples’ heads.

Meanwhile, ISIS is sending tweets with the Mandalay drenched in blood. They also like to mess with peoples’ heads.

  1. True psychopaths leave a long history pointing clearly to such a diagnosis. As children, most begin their sociopathic “careers” by torturing and killing small animals. Eventually, when these behaviors no longer excite them (very little does excite them), they eventually escalate to human victims usually children, women, elderly – those who make easiest victims.
    By this time, I believe authorities know what inspired this man. They are waiting for emotions and attention to die down some before telling us this was politically inspired. After 8 long years of Obama with its outrageous corruption followed by more than a year of the so called, “alt right,” Trump supporters being beaten, bloodied and disrespected in every way possible, they know Conservatives are already on a short fuse. Why you see them seeming so nervous every time “motives,” are discussed.

  2. The NBC report does state the connected all the phones with chargers. He is said to have earned about 5 million in 2015, mostly from gambling. Can a person be that lucky with “luck”. I am unaware if those specific winnings can be traced and, if not, could this not be a method of money laundering?

    The way the brother spoke about their wealth and spending money sounds rather suspicious. At one time he claims he himself made a great deal of money, even though despising his job, and then another time says his brother made his retirement possible.

    Today’s press conference definitely took on a different tone and the one question that has yet to be asked is the witness telling, “you’re all going to die”. The young girl was visibly shaken when speaking of it so it is unlikely it is manufactured. I don’t know if it was frustration that no progress has been made, or all the theories floating around has made the investigation team on edge. Today’s was much shorter than all the previous ones and abruptly ended. I’ve never seen the man from the FBI before so his demeanor may be just his character, but his presence whether standing or talking seems quite peculiar. I do find it very suspicious that any terrorist influence is summarily dismissed. Considering they say they know SO little how can that determination be made? In each of these cases we hearken back to how the FBI changed their guidelines so as not to offend Islam. It would also be interesting to know the political affiliations of all the personnel involved. The press was told they found nothing in that regard. With what the brother said a person Could draw conclusions but nothing was clearly stated.

    It surely seems unlikely they can find No leads in this regard. There are no books, no magazines, no movies he watched or anything at all. The massive planning and the time spent acquiring everything certainly has to have motive or intention. Considering the venues that were scoped, then one in particular chosen, should also be some sort of lead. This has been explored by many commentators. Many times Islamic terrorists aren’t discriminate in their choice and are more concerned with the carnage, but Would consider a venue that has a political angle if that better suits the purpose. Another note on the brother here. He did state, as teenagers, the two would get into various troubles but, as he stated, he was smarter than the others and thus didn’t get caught. So, did he have foreknowledge and made sure he would have no culpability? He also made the statement, “if the casinos aren’t lying”. I am beginning to wonder how much Will be kept from the pubic, for whatever reason.

  3. There is one conspiracy theory floating around that IS plausible, only because of past history. That is, another Fast and Furious type situation. I’ve only seen some snippets of this but it says the shooter was part of a gun running operation to arm ISIS, maybe for entrapment or sting purposes. This could also be the reason for the explosives. Remember, most of the weapons were bought in the past year. Because of the failure of the previous Fast and Furious using certain outlets the shooter purchased his guns from all over, mainly in single quantities.

    On the surface this sounds utterly ridiculous but after that previous episode we have suspicions. Then the question is Why did he commit the act. Some posit it wasn’t him who did the shooting. The failure of this theory is why no weapons were used in any sting operation. It is unfathomable why the DEA would even promote such an idea. One could ask What the hell were they smoking. Interestingly the Trump administration cancelled a unification of the FBI and DEA.

    We DO know the DEA has been involved with some serious crooked work. They have used unwarranted surveillance in some drug cases and handed the information over to local authorities, who would then “create” a string of evidence to hide the original method of intelligence operations. The Government has dropped cases so this information would not be revealed. So, we do know how far those in power will go to “enforce the law”.

  4. With cameras everywhere in Las Vegas hotels the idea that investigators are still trying to find who, if anybody, might have been in the room with him….is ludicrous. Something stinks.
