One Year After Worst Shooting in U.S. History Police Have “No Motive” & Suspect is Walking Free

On October 1, 2017, 58 people were killed and 851 wounded in the worst shooting attack in American history.  The Islamic State said they were going to attack Las Vegas and claimed responsibility for the attack after it happened.

The FBI and the Las Vegas Sheriff still claim they have “no idea” what the motive was for this attack.

Facts on the Table

The Islamic State publicly stated Las Vegas was a target, then claimed credit for the attack, explaining the man founded dead inside his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, Stephen Paddock, converted to Islam a few months prior and was a “soldier of the caliphate.”

UTT’s analysis of the facts as we know them today reveal:  Paddock conducted pre-operational surveillance on several targets before settling on Las Vegas; Paddock initiated the assault prior to his planned time because his preparations were interrupted by a security guard, making it more likely more shooters were going to join him since there were many guns and two shooting portals in the two separate rooms on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay rented by Paddock; the Las Vegas Sheriff revealed Paddock left no suicide note, and all other evidence points to the fact Paddock intended to escape after the attack; and because the Islamic State has never claimed an attack in the West in the manner they did for this attack – and claimed it 4 times – when they were not responsible.

Then there is the curious case of Australian Brian Hodge, a left-wing activist who currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

By his own admission, Hodge was inside one of the two rooms rented by Paddock, and on the 32nd floor during the shooting.  Hodge told reporters he hid in bushes outside the Mandalay Bay for “three and a half hours” when in fact the shooting was over in approximately 20 minutes and Hodge was ten miles away shortly after the shooting.

Hodge ended up being at a motel in Las Vegas (Knotty Pine) with three individuals from an area in Mexico with high Islamic State activity.  Coincidence?

Then from October 2-4, Hodge traveled to New Mexico and spent time in a restaurant owned by a Turk who is on a Watchlist and hails from an area in Turkey with high Islamic State activity.  Oddly, the restaurant owner has gone silent on his social media since a few days after the attack.

Notably, several people have now written about Brian Hodge being a suspect in this attack, yet Hodge has made no effort to clear his name or set the record straight.

Hodge has also not responded to UTT’s requests for an interview.

Since the worst shooting attack in American history, there have been no Congressional hearings, the FBI and the Las Vegas Sheriff’s Office never looked as the Islamic State as a possible suspect in this attack, and over 900 Americans are dead/wounded without even a hint authorities have any desire to get these questions answered.

Worst case scenario – this was the first joint Islamic State/Antifa attack in the United States.

What can you do?  Ensure your sheriff’s office and local police department understand the Islamic threat, specifically, the Muslim Brotherhood network, their modus operandi, and sharia (their doctrine), because knowing this information radically changes how police do their jobs on a day to day basis regarding attacks such as this.

  1. Did the Saudi’s rent the upper floors? I have heard that they did. Many people claim there were more shooters. Is it possible for one man to shoot as many rounds as is claimed? I have hear the shooter was a scapegoat and likely killed by other shooters. How does one man get all that equipment up to that floor and no one question him? Is the FBI compromised even now under Trump?

    • EYE SPY magazine, issue #112, in 2017, published an article about a Phillippino Dr. Russel Salic, who was/is a fan of ISIS, was connected with two Arabs in a plot to set off a bomb at Times Square at about the same time as the LV shooting in 2017. An FBI intercept also recorded Salic as saying “we need to shoot up a concert coz they kill a lot of people . . . that’s how the Paris guys did it.” He also talked about killing Jews.

      The Phillipinne connection might be important because the LV shooter’s girlfriend was from the Phillapines. While the Phillappines are a Christian majority country, they do have a large Muslim population and the al-Qaeda allied Aby Sayyaf group has been active there for decades. ISIS has also established cells there. I find it interesting that the media and authorities have never stated whether Mary Lou Danlow was Christian, Muslim, or whatever. I also find it interesting that Mary Lou deleted her facebook page before her BF name was announced.

      I also find it most interesting that not only did ISIS claim responsibility, they told their followers via a secret website to begin celebrating minutes before the news was announced by Western media.

  3. OPINION:

    Las Vegas, Nevada owes credit for the initial steps it took between 1931 & 1966 to begin its transformation from what was essentially little more than a desert and an eventual hydro-electric federally designated dam site into the international mecca of show business, high rollers and family-oriented megaresorts it has since become, first: a) to the Mafia, which saw the need for, and had built, theaters (with beautiful girls), casinos and places to stay, on behalf of the thousands of young males whose arrival signaled the start of Boulder dam construction, (renamed “Hoover” dam during the Truman administration); and, b) later on, Howard Hughes, whose variety of local hotel et al mega investments there is alleged to have created a more “refined” atmosphere in Las Vegas.

    More to UTT’s point, however, since we-the-people now know, thanks to one admirable voice in the United States Senate, that the secret “28-pages” contained in the 9-11 Commission’s composite report reveals it was the government of Saudi Arabia which financed the attacks said report was mandated to address, and which effectively equated to a declaration of war* on our country — it isn’t any wonder, not withstanding the preponderance of incriminating evidence, that the FBI and politically elected sheriff of Las Vegas, Nevada facetiously claim to have no idea what motivated said sharia-adherent terrorist attack at the Mandalay Hotel. HELLO!, Its a cover-up designed to maintain yet another politically correct illusion of safety & peace, and thus safeguard a perpetual flow of middle-east high roller money into Las Vegas as more & more Americans fall victim to the ideological madness of sharia-adherent savages.

    As the comptroller of Nevada obviously knows (as the executive or official who supervises Las Vegas’ financial affairs), among the world’s 7 continents, the 3 abutting entities comprising the so-called wealthy “middle-east” (Africa, Asia and Europe) obviously send high-rollers (and probably sharia-adherent killers as well) to Las Vegas. Antarctica doesn’t matter contextually since Eskimos are rarely known to leave the warmth of their ice-bound igloos to go gaming in Las Vegas; among the 3 remaining continents, however — Australia, South & North America — the last, due to recently relaxed national sports-gambling restrictions, now lays tacit claim to being the location of the largest show business and international gambling cartel anywhere in the world; I.e., the NFL, which is not only expanding to other continents, but in 2020 will complete the movement of its former Oakland Raider entity to Las Vegas.

    Furthermore, assuming the veracity of the entire body of contextual, I.e. official, statements, and In view of the obvious fact that neither the FBI agent(s) nor the Las Vegas sheriff who were ostensibly made familiar with the details of said mass murder attack have the investigatory skills required to accurately identify the motive involved with respect to said 58 murders & 851 gunshot wounds, which were obviously inflicted on innocent people on behalf of Islamic sharia-adherence, it would be hard to imagine any American law-enforcement entity which more desperately needed the assistance of UTT’s training curriculum.

    As for the inferential suggestion to the Nevada financial official to follow the money with respect to any criminal cover-ups which perforce accommodate the repetitive return of middle-east high rollers to Las Vegas, be they related to homicide or whatever; were he or she to assess the relative economic & tax benefits which accrue to the State of Nevada from the respective continental divides, I suspect that a glaring anomaly would emerge which would point to a profit motive threaded to political corruption involving both federal and domestic law enforcement entities effectively acting in abeyance to Islamic sharia-adherence and to the detriment of the safety, yea lives, of innocent people. Which appears to be the case in Las Vegas vis-à-vis the foregoing UTT narrative.
