Why Is Media Saying Las Vegas Shooter Made Millions Playing Video Poker When That Is 100% Impossible? Coulter Has A Theory.

Wiki

Ann Coulter criticizes the official versions or the Las Vegas shooting and offers a theory that makes more sense. The media says that Stephen Paddock made millions in profits from playing video poker, which is impossible long term. Coulter’s theory is that he was laundering cash through the casino and was an illegal arms trader, which would explain the absurd collection of weapons and ammunition found in his room. This speculation is worth considering. -GEG

Now the media are just taunting us with their tall tales about Stephen Paddock, the alleged Las Vegas shooter. Reputedly serious news organizations are claiming that he made a living playing video poker. That’s like claiming someone made a living smoking crack.

The media are either doing PR for the gambling industry or they don’t want anyone considering the possibility that Paddock was using gambling to launder money.

NBC News reports, with a straight face: “Las Vegas gunman earned millions as a gambler.” A Los Angeles Times article is headlined, “In the solitary world of video poker, Stephen Paddock knew how to win.” The story says that Paddock’s gambling “was at least a steady income over a period of years.”

I don’t know all the ins and outs of Paddock’s life, but that’s a lie.

How do reporters imagine casino owners make a living? Any ideas on how all those glorious lobbies, lights, pools and fountains are paid for? How do they think Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn became billionaires if gambling is a winning proposition for people like Paddock — and therefore, by definition, a losing proposition for the casinos?

The media think about money the way Democrats do. They have absolutely no conception of where it originates. Those casino owners sure are generous! reporters think to themselves. Economist Thomas Sowell is always ridiculing journalists for not understanding basic economics. It turns out, they don’t understand the spreadsheet of a lemonade stand.

The New York Times explained that the “top” video poker machines pay out 99.17 percent. That’s great that Paddock was only losing cents on the dollar (if true), but it’s still losing. The Times quickly explained that he could have more than made up his losses with all the “comps” — the free rooms, meals and “50-year-old port that costs $500 a glass,” as his brother Eric said.

Gamblers who are beating the house are not given $500 glasses of port. Refer to the profit/loss spreadsheet. And yet, according to his brother, Paddock was treated like royalty by the casinos. Which means he was losing.

Did George Floyd Die from Asphyxiation or Drug Overdose?

The official county autopsy mentioned that Floyd had a concentration of the drug Fentanyl at three times the lethal level. We hesitated to publish this fact and risk being accused of trying to cover up police brutality, which certainly is not the case. We have a long record of reporting on cases of police brutality when warranted.

Why Social Distancing Is Harmful to Children

The COVID-19 fatality rate for children is so low that the CDC calculates it at 0.0% for anyone under 19 years of age. Isolation creates depression, lack of sleep, poor cardiovascular function, cognitive decline, and impaired immunity. This is a must-watch.

Ed, IMO these are all rabbit trails set up to keep us all on the wrong track. Those guns were there to provide support for this and possible other rabbit trails. If Coulter is sincere, she is reporting this because this is what she has been purposely led to believe. Here is a link to what is a much more credible story:

The Givocrats want their loyal subjects to believe in and expect a free ride in life. Indeed, that it is totally possible to beat the system and have a gold plated life style handed over on a silver platter, with no effort or patience required.

IMO Coulter’s report is just another false rabbit trail planted to keep us on the wrong tracks. If she was sincere in reporting this, it was because that’s what she was purposely let to believe. On the surface, it is a plausible explanation for all those guns. But in reality, I’m sure those guns were all planted to give false support to her story. A more credible story I believe is Chertoff et al’s connection, reported here: http://bit(dot)ly/2wTqzfq (https://www.facebook(dot)com/dwight.reynolds.923/posts/1945388235749544)
