Did Paddock’s love for diversity in his bed make him a more tolerant and happy person, free of hate? Or did it motivate him to shoot up an overwhelmingly White concert?
Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, a resident of nearby Mesquite, Nevada, opened fire on a country music festival taking place at Las Vegas Village from a room across the street in the Mandalay Bay Hotel just after 10pm on Sunday evening.
The claim was swiftly shot down by US officials, who said there is no evidence he was linked to ISIS. Paddock’s family had earlier said he had no religious or political affiliations.
Claims: Terror group ISIS said Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock had ‘converted to Islam a few months ago’ and that he was a ‘soldier of the Islamic State’
‘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.
As of now, the shooter seems to be a fuckin’ white male with an Indonesian girlfriend who shot down on a crowd of 22,000 country music festival attendees from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. To be more specific, the shooter was a 64-year-old, possibly lefty Boomer with a Muslim girlfriend with an Australian passport.
According to Time, the suspect had been staying in a hotel room in Las Vegas since September 28th, and before that had lived in a retirement community in central Florida.
Isis has claimed responsibility for the deadliest mass shooting in American history. (…)
A statement published by the group’s Amaq propaganda agency claimed the attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic State”.
“The Las Vegas attacker is a soldier of the Islamic State in response to calls to target coalition countries,” it said.
Isis also claimed the gunman “converted to Islam several months ago”, without providing more details.
Update 8 (9:10am): The Vegas shooter Paddock killed himself as the police closed in. According to undersheriff Kevin McMahill, Stephen Paddock died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound as police made entry to his Las Vegas hotel room. He also confirmed that Paddock, who is believed to have checked into the hotel on Thursday, had more than 10 guns. McMahill added that Marilou Danley is overseas and that officers have made contact with her. She is believed to be Australian and of Indonesian origin.
Update — 5:40 a.m. PDT: “The Clark County Fire Department estimated that approximately 406 people were transported to area hospitals and 50 are dead following Sunday evening’s shooting.”
According to the Australian, Marilou Danley, the woman wanted by police in connection with the Las Vegas shooting is Australian. The Australian understands that she was the girlfriend of the dead shooter Stephen Paddock. Ms Danley is understood to have shared a house in Las Vegas with Mr Paddock. She holds an Australian passport and is possibly of Indonesian decent. Las Vegas Police said that they had located Danley after earlier issuing her photo and naming her as a person of interest following the shooting.
Did the woman Islamize and radicalize her hubby? Maybe. Israeli news seems to think so. Indonesia has a problem with Islam, so maybe they’re not wrong.
Marilou Danley is a former “high-limit hostess” at a casino. The mother and grandmother, whose now deleted Facebook page was full of photos with family members and trips overseas, was described by police as a 4’11” Asian woman. She was described as a “companion” of the still unidentified shooter. Police stopped short of calling Danley a suspect in the early morning hours of October 2, but they said they wanted to talk to her about the carnage.
It would be interesting to find out where those trips took her. The casinos operating in the Gulf States maybe?
This is now the deadliest shooting in US history:
In a press briefing, Las Vegas Sheriff Lombardo said that the death toll from the gruesome shooting has risen to at least 50, with more than 200 injured. Additionally, Lombardo said that the now deceased shooter was identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock. The sheriff added that “we are confident but not 100% sure that we have located the female person of interest.”
Quick question: did Paddock’s love for diversity in his bed make him a more tolerant and happy person, free of hate? Or did it motivate him to shoot up an overwhelmingly White concert?
Guess diversity isn’t the answer to everything.
Media narrative inbound: Option 1: white supremacist fascist asshole who’s been emboldened by Trump’s presidency. Option 2: anti-fascist hero, who has taken out a load of right-wing country music-lovin’ trump supporting rubes.
Either way, the guns gotta go.
Here’s a thought. If this was really just a mentally ill man (which it might be), who just decided to shoot up a country concert in a premeditated act of violence, then what does it say about the state of mental health in America? And what does it say about the state of Boomers?
Something’s not right. These kinds of attacks happen with increasing frequency all over the place. People will want someone to put an end to it, one way or another.
As a public service, Best Defense is offering this primer for generals on their way to Afghanistan.
Here is a list of 19 things that many insiders and veterans of Afghanistan agree to be true about the war there, but that generals can’t say in public. So, general, read this now and believe it later-but keep your lip zipped. Maybe even keep a printout in your wallet and review before interviews.
My list of things to remember I can’t say
- Pakistan is now an enemy of the United States.
- We don’t know why we are here, what we are fighting for, or how to know if we are winning.
- The strategy is to fight, talk, and build. But we’re withdrawing the fighters, the Taliban won’t talk, and the builders are corrupt.
- Karzai’s family is especially corrupt.
- We want President Karzai gone but we don’t have a Pushtun successor handy.
- But the problem isn’t corruption, it is which corrupt people are getting the dollars. We have to help corruption be more fair.
- Another thing we’ll never stop here is the drug traffic, so the counternarcotics mission is probably a waste of time and resources that just alienates a swath of Afghans.
- Making this a NATO mission hurt, not helped. Most NATO countries are just going through the motions in Afghanistan as the price necessary to keep the US in Europe
- Yes, the exit deadline is killing us.
- Even if you got a deal with the Taliban, it wouldn’t end the fighting.
- The Taliban may be willing to fight forever. We are not.
- Yes, we are funding the Taliban, but hey, there’s no way to stop it, because the truck companies bringing goods from Pakistan and up the highway across Afghanistan have to pay off the Taliban. So yeah, your tax dollars are helping Mullah Omar and his buddies. Welcome to the neighborhood.
- Even non-Taliban Afghans don’t much like us.
- Afghans didn’t get the memo about all our successes, so they are positioning themselves for the post-American civil war .
- And they’re not the only ones getting ready. The future of Afghanistan is probably evolving up north now as the Indians, Russians and Pakistanis jockey with old Northern Alliance types. Interestingly, we’re paying more and getting less than any other player.
- Speaking of positioning for the post-American civil war, why would the Pakistanis sell out their best proxy shock troops now?
- The ANA and ANP could break the day after we leave the country.
- We are ignoring the advisory effort and fighting the “big war” with American troops, just as we did in Vietnam. And the U.S. military won’t act any differently until and work with the Afghan forces seriously until when American politicians significantly draw down U.S. forces in country-when it may be too damn late.
- The situation American faces in Afghanistan is similar to the one it faced in Vietnam during the Nixon presidency: A desire a leave and turn over the war to our local allies, combined with the realization that our allies may still lose, and the loss will be viewed as a U.S. defeat anyway.

There was no claim of responsibility, though NATO member Norway has been the target of threats, if not bombs, before, notably over its involvement in conflicts in Afghanistan and Libya. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg was safe, NTB said.
NRK radio said at least two people were killed in an attack that may have brought global political violence to the quiet Scandinavian city.
“It exploded — it must have been a bomb. People ran in panic and ran. I counted at least 10 injured people,” said bystander Kjersti Vedun, who was leaving the area.
A Reuters reporter at the scene said the blast scattered debris across the streets and shook the entire city center around 3:30 p.m. (9:30 a.m. EDT). He saw eight people injured, one covered in a sheet and apparently dead.
“So far I can confirm that we have received seven people at Oslo University Hospital,” a press officer at the clinic said.
“I don’t know how seriously wounded they are.”
The explosion blew out most of the windows of the 17-storey central government building, cast a huge pall of smoke over the city and scattered shards of metal and other debris for hundreds of meters.
Nearby ministries were also hit, including the oil ministry, which was on fire. Heavy debris littered the streets.
John Drake, senior risk consultant, at London-based consultancy AKE said: “It may not be too dissimilar to the terrorist attack in Stockholm in December which saw a car bomb and secondary explosion shortly after in the downtown area.
“That attack was later claimed as reprisal for Sweden’s contribution to the efforts in Afghanistan.”
The Reuters correspondent said the streets had been fairly quiet in mid-afternoon on a Friday in high summer, when many Oslo residents take vacation or leave for weekend breaks.
The tangled wreckage of a car was outside one building, as well as the damage to the buildings, appeared consistent to witnesses with that from car bombs.
NATO member Norway has sometimes in the past been threatened by leaders of al Qaeda for its involvement in Afghanistan. But political violence is virtually unknown in a country known for sponsoring the Nobel Peace Prize and mediating in international conflicts, including in the Middle East and Sri Lanka.
It has also taken part the NATO bombing of Libya, where Muammar Gaddafi has threatened to strike back in Europe.
David Lea, Western Europe analyst, at Control Risks said: “There certainly aren’t any domestic Norwegian terrorist groups although there have been some al Qaeda-linked arrests from time to time. They are in Afghanistan and were involved in Libya, but it’s far too soon to draw any conclusions.”

The notorious Osmanli horde is stirring once again.
With Prime Minister Erdogan’s Islamist AK party having seized its third landslide election victory in Turkey, many throughout the international community have been watching to see what will be next on the Turkish agenda.
Now there are strong indicators in the Turkish media that Turkey is planning on literally doubling the size of its army – this coming from the nation that already has the largest army in Middle East and the second-largest army in NATO, second only to the United States. Presently, Turkey’s army has over 500,000 troops. Its army is larger than France, Germany and England combined. And now Turkish media are reporting that they are planning on adding another 500,000 paid soldiers.
According to Egemen Bağış, a state minister and Turkey’s chief EU negotiator, the purpose of the army is to kill two birds with one stone, overcoming two of Turkey’s biggest challenges: terrorism and unemployment. This move would create half a million new jobs for Turkey while answering once and for all Turkey’s problem with Kurdish separatist terrorists in the southeast.
Bağış spoke to journalists at the Turkish ambassador’s office in Brussels. “The government is prepared to hire 500,000 people. … This structural change will also contribute to our struggle with unemployment,” he said.
Such an expansion would be particularly concerning in light of the Turkish government’s recent swing toward Islamist political alliances. They have worked to significantly reinforce strategic alliances with both Iran and Syria, two of the most well-established state sponsors of terrorism globally, while significantly cooling its relationship with Israel and the United States. Despite this, the Obama administration this past January, sold the Turkish Air Force 100 F-35 Lightning II fighter jets. Turkey already manufactures it’s own F-16s.
It is also essential to once again remind ourselves of the recent accomplishments of the Islamist AK party under Prime Minister Erdogan’s leadership. In just the past several years, the AK party has edged ever closer to establishing a full-blown dictatorship, all in the name of democracy. Since 2002, they have managed to accomplish the following:
- occupy the presidency;
- occupy the seat of prime minister;
- gain a large majority of seats in the parliament;
- fill the judiciary with Islamist-leaning judges;
- behead the top echelons of the military;
- infiltrate the police force (over 70 percent of officers are members the Islamist Gulen movement);
- intimidate and imprison Turkish journalists (there are more Turkish journalists in prison than any other nation in the world – more than China or Iran).
The nation’s leadership is now working toward a bill authorizing them to rewrite the Turkish Constitution, giving them far more sweeping powers over the military and judiciary.
Only Solution to these animals, is war my brothers, good old fashion war of annihilation, there can be no peace, they know it, we know it, so let us be white devils, and do what we must to protect our civilization from its racial enemies. Although I am saddened by what happened to this girl, and I’m not a christian, this video tells you all you need to know about islam, and why it must be destroyed.
“(1) The video was received by a group calling itself “Free Copts”. It shows an incident in which a Coptic Christian girl was sexually abused in an attempt to Islamize her. She belonged to a large and wealthy family of Christian Copts living in Minia in upper Egypt. One of her Muslim neighbours induced her to go to his house. Upon arriving there she was surprised to find a group of young Muslim males. They forced her to go with them to a nearby house. They threatened to kill her if she made any noise or cried for help. They forcibly took her clothes from her and videoed her completely naked next to one of the young men. The plan was to blackmail her into marrying him by informing her and her family that the tape would be made public unless she did so. They also threatened her with the same fate as had befallen another girl not far away, a girl who had been raped by 8 Muslim men, murdered, and had her body dumped in a nearby graveyard. The police and the prosecuting authority let those 8 men go free. The ringleader of the men in this video was supposed to receive a reward of 30,000 Egyptian pounds from a mosque in El Manya if they managed to get the girl to convert to Islam. The four men in the video are habitual criminals who constantly rob the shops and businesses of the Christian Copts.
(2) The girl eventually escaped back to her family. The men then tried to extort money from them.
(3) This is one of the methods Muslims are using to Islamize Egypt — they kidnap young Christian girls, rape them, force them to convert to Islam. Sometimes they are forced to marry old Muslim men who keep them as hostages for their sexual gratification and kill them when they are of no further use.”
