Unless you’ve been following the alternative media, you probably don’t know on Sunday night, October 1st, there were police scanners reporting shooters at the following Las Vegas hotels: New York-New York, Tropicana, Bellagio, Planet Hollywood, and Paris.[1] A Twitter post called this “Muslim Terror.” [2] On Monday morning, at 8:42 a.m. PST, before facts had been established, Time online reported, “There isn’t evidence of shots fired at other hotels on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, nor is there evidence that the shooter was linked to Muslim terrorists.” The article went on to warn readers of fake news.[2] They did not disclose they were the fake news.

Contradicting the Time article is this video, from a guest at the Bellagio: [Las Vegas Shooting – Absolute Proof of Shooter At Bellagio Hotel – Video of Hotel Lockdown].

In this video, Rene Downs gives her eyewitness account. She and husband were in the Bellagio lounge when the lobby was hit with automatic rounds. Bullets came through the front doors. Glass was shattered. Her ex-Marine husband pushed her to the floor and shielded her with his body. Other hotel guests hit the floor.  They stayed there until security yelled at them to get to the back of the hotel. She then filmed a tour of the hotel on lockdown. During the tour, she questioned a Bellagio staff member who confirmed what the news was reporting—that nothing happened at any other hotels—wasn’t true.

Later, [in this video account], Rene said by Monday morning, the lobby glass was replaced and the checkout staff said nothing had happened. When Rene challenged that and offered to show her cell phone documentary, the management waived the couple’s room bill and said they were good to go.

Do we absolutely know the Bellagio shooter was connected to the Mandalay Bay slaughter?  No. It could have been a very alert copycat shooter or even an attempted robbery which coincidentally involved an automatic weapon on the same night as America’s largest mass shooting. We seem to be a long way from knowing what actually happened. The real concern is not just what happened, but that the government and corporate media are covering it up.

There are dozens upon dozens of posted personal videos of the Vegas Massacre. It’s odd to me people would prioritize documenting the event, rather than running for safety. This is the age of citizen journalists. It’s a good thing.

If our only evidence of a possible second shooter was the Bellagio lockdown video and eyewitness accounts [3, 4, 5], there could still be doubt. But a now-famous taxi driver released this video: [Incredible Must See Video Documents Multiple Shooters In Vegas Massacre]. Now it’s up to your common sense. Is this an echo or two shooters? (If you need more help, this video has a technical breakdown of the soundtrack: [Lone Gunman Lie]. Then, this [former Navy Seal] gives his opinion.)

There is no shortage of videos speculating why this happened: [Deeply Embedded Satanic Cult in Control of Powerful Institutions – Rick Wiles] and [Vegas Massacre Solved! Cover-Up Exposed]. Most readers of this site are well-informed. You may not have learned anything new from this article.

My point is we are living in a new age of media. Citizen journalists have become more important than the corporate media. Your favoriteTV news personality is simply an actor or actress. On bubble vision, journalism died many years ago. Today we have repeaters rather than reporters. Even on Fox News, where is the investigative reporting? Whatever the government reports it is accepted as authoritative fact. No questioning. No fact-checking. If the government reports it, it must be true. The corporate media works within acceptable parameters. Media corporations are in bed with the government.

It’s not uncommon the Mainstream Media (MSM) works against the truth. Jake Morphonios supplies content for the [End Times News Report]. He was the primary distributor of the Bellagio lockdown video; more than 2.5 million views. More people went to Morphonios’ site than went to [CNN, MSNBC, Fox News or any other MSM]. This led The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) to do a 30-minute phone interview with Jake. The resulting article was: [YouTube Tweaks Search Results as Las Vegas Conspiracy Theories Rise to Top]. In the interview, WSJ fabricated a quote from Morphonios, reporting the opposite of what Jake said. Outsmarting The Journal, Jake recorded the conversation and used the original audio in this podcast: [Las Vegas Shooting—My Wall Street Journal Interview Was a Cold-Blooded Hit Job!] After the threat of a libel lawsuit, [WSJ made a public correction].

I know people who read WSJ religiously. They think it is financial gospel. In my previous series [Financial Fake News, Part 1] and [Financial Fake News, Part 2] I documented how the government, MSM, and financial instructions work together to deceive the public.

Does it matter whether MSM tells the truth? Might it be, for national security purposes, it is best the public doesn’t know all the facts in real time? Maybe there is a good reason some of the Vegas facts are withheld from the public. One concern though is the past. As just one example, after 16 years MSM is still covering up the truth behind 9-11. [9-11 Conspiracy Fact And How This Implicates Vice President Pence, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Fox News Super Stars…] The consequence of this cover-up has been endless wars, unnecessary deaths and destruction, loss of our liberties, and the bankruptcy of our government. A propaganda-based media shares responsibility for these outcomes. They justify it differently.

Now let’s discuss what the Vegas Massacre means to your finances. Under most speculative theories, more carnage is in our future. If so, this will create unprecedented political and financial instability. There may even be a disruption in the supply chain, the internet, or the electrical grid.

Learning from Puerto Ricans, we need to be prepared for self-sufficiency. [What To Do.] We can’t depend on our government to protect us or meet our every need. Some preppers have a major hole in their planning. Their 401k or IRA is heavily invested in paper assets (stocks, bonds, and mutual funds). We are in a period where hard assets are going to beat paper assets.[6] The fires of political and financial uncertainty, fueled by more debt and money printing, will likely burn up the purchasing value of paper assets. Hard assets, led by precious metals, are likely to protect (and possibly grow) purchasing power.

The risks forecasted by the Vegas Massacre are not even the most important, in my mind. I have four risks I’m watching closely: expansion of U.S. debt and future money printing, upcoming global monetary change, North Korea and other possible black swans, and U.S. political instability. My next two articles will develop these themes. Meanwhile, now’s a good time to buy [undervalued] gold and silver bullion.

“Dollar” Bill is a real guy, with real knowledge on our nation’s financial calamity, and real solutions for what must be done to dig ourselves out of the hole we are in. Due to his career, Bill must remain “disguised” to protect his position. “Bill” loves America, sees the impending cliff we are all headed towards, and hopes that by sharing his inside knowledge of the failed monetary policy in our nation, that a fiscal “nuclear” event can be minimized.
