Out of the Shire: Life Beyond Tolkien Tolkien has far exceeded that of his closest friends. For almost anyone under the age of 70, Tolkien is a champion of great art and high imagination. For an older generation—in general—he still, unfortunately, represents decadent hippiness, magic mushrooms, and psychedelic tuning out.

Cairo Aims for Crackdown After IS Terrorists Attack al-Rawda Mosque According to Egyptian authorities, this terrible attack killed 305 innocents—27 of them children—and injured 128. The gunmen are widely believed to be followers of the Islamic State, which has put down deep roots in Sinai. Although there have been no claims of responsibility to-date, survivors report that the killers brandished the trademark black flag of jihad, an IS symbol. Some of the terrorists were masked, while others eschewed the usual IS get-up of long hair with thick beards—they looked like professional killers, clad in black t-shirts and camouflage-print trousers.

“You are fake news.” The hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” did the usual day-after Thanksgiving kibitzing on the air on Friday morning, telling viewers about their turkey dinners and mentioning the big football game the night before. One problem: None of those things had actually happened at the time Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Co. started talking about them. The program that aired Friday morning was taped Wednesday, but made to look and sound as if it was airing live.

Las Vegas Shooting: More Rose Fertilizer BTW, they have no idea why Paddock is supposed to have started shooting. Nor why he stopped. Nor why he quit with over 4,000 additional rounds remaining. I repeat, this wasn’t a mass shooting as much as it was a photo op. One or two weapons is a shooter. Twenty-three is a press release. And quitting while fully healthy, with over 80% of your rounds remaining? The simple answer is that the shooter didn’t want to get caught. And didn’t.

“Out Of Control Genocide” In Baltimore, Residents Support Martial Law Baltimore is home to about 615,000 people, but the city has more homicides than New York or Los Angeles, both of which have far larger populations. Earlier this year, Mayor Catherine Pugh called in the Federal Government in hopes to restore order. She was even quoted, “Violence in the city is out of control.”ヲ

No End – Mountain*7 Beyond all of this, a friend and family member is in the reachless fathoms of dementia. He is cared for by the most extraordinary people, in the most extraordinary, selfless ways. He is an erasure, and they, in turn, suffer a kind of erasure themselves. But they continue to search for him and provide the softest, safest space for his gradual and terminal disappearing. Onward he goes, propelled by who knows what mysteries, into the trackless wild. K, as you go, they are there, they are there, and that heat you feel, that is they, brandishing the weight of love’s flaming torches.

Antwerp Diamond Heist: Inside The $100 Million Getaway The thieves got through the 10 layers of security, previously thought to be impenetrable. They bypassed cameras, the combo dial, the keyed lock, magnetic sensors, the locked steel gate, light sensors, heat and motion sensors, and keypad disarming sensors. They used aluminum to trick the magnetic field and stripped plastic off the wires of the sensor’s circuits. Then, they loaded up bags of diamonds and other jewels. It took two hours to get it all out of the building.

    47,000 vacant houses in Baltimore?

    I finally got to see Baltimore years ago when my daughter and her husband, who lived in nearby Columbia, took me for a visit. FINALLY, I said, I’ve seen an uglier city then Denver. We visited the Inner Harbor and had a pleasant lunch. went for a stroll and very quickly I was patting the empty spot on my hip where I usually carry. What a shithole. I can only imagine what the last 8 years of black “leadership” and Obama’s bullshit have done.

    The Las Vegas shooting and the mass arrests in Saudi Arabia. What connection could there be?

    People of Interest:
    (This list is a bit hard to follow because of the long names. This chart : http://www.businessinsider.com/a-whos-who-of-the-saudi-royal-family-2015-2 will help you clarify who is who.)
    King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud (King Saud. Deceased) : King of Saudi Arabia (1932-1953)
    King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud (Deceased) : 5th son of King Saud. King of Saudi Arabia until his death in 2015. Successor is King Salman
    Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud (Henceforth King Salman): Current King of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). 8th son of deceased King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud.
    Mohammad bin Salman (Henceforth Crown Prince Mohammad): Son of King Salman. Currently next in line to be king after King Salman.
    Muqrin bin Abdulaziz (Former Deputy Crown Prince. Henceforth Muqrin) : 9th son of deceased King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud. Was next in line to be king if King Salman had died before being crowned king. IS THE FATHER OF Mansour bin Muqrin bin Abdulaziz Al Saud! THE MAN KILLED IN THE HELICOPTOR CRASH ON 11/5/2017.
    Mansour bin Muqrin bin Abdulaziz Al Saud (Henceforth Mansour) : Son of Muqrin bin Abdulaziz. Died 11/5/2017, the day of the failed coup on the throne of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
    Alwaleed bin Talal (Henceforth Talal) : Billionaire businessmen. Grandson of King Saud. Has ties to DNC, Clinton, Podesta. Arrested 11/4/2017 for corruption. Owns The Four Seasons at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas (Four Seasons occupy the top floors of Mandalay Bay) Owns shares in Twitter as well as other high-tech silicon valley companies. Has had spats with Trump in the past.
    I know that’s a mouthful of names, but bear with me. Just remember 4 names: Salman, Mohammad, Muqrin, and Mansour.
    Do you remember how President Trump visited Saudi Arabia back in May of 2017? Do you remember how warmly he was greeted by King Salman? I do. It was a spectacle. Why was he greeted so welcomingly? After all, President Obama’s reception was… shall we say, less than grand. Do you remember how after Trump’s visit, Saudi Arabia started becoming more open in their policies? Women can drive there now. Did you notice how the Syrian rebellion became quiet? Did you notice how quickly ISIS was crushed after the visit? Why did Saudi Arabia suddenly want to get their oil companies listed on the NYSE? What could have caused this?
    To answer this, we have to look a little further back. Back to around 2010.
    It all goes back to fracking. You see, the Kindom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has always relied heavily on its vast petrol reserves for wealth and prosperity. And they were ruthless. OPEC. The cartel of gasoline. You can’t count the number of times throughout history that OPEC used its power to crush governments, manipulate prices, control supplies, and fund activities. If there ever was a international group of bullies, OPEC was it. And at the head of this organization was the mighty KSA.
    Then came the fracking boom. Suddenly, the world was no longer at the mercy of OPEC. This made them nervous. So, they did what they always do. They pumped out more petroleum, driving the price of gas to lowest in decades. What was their objective? To bankrupt these fracking businesses. KSA is rich. Very rich. They figured, we’ll just drive gas prices unbelievably low and take the loss until all these fracking business startups crumble. Do you remember how cheap gas got between 2013-2016? It was ridiculous, wasn’t it? But what they didn’t count on was just how cheap fracking had become. So many of these business didn’t go bankrupt. So they took another step. To convince the world that fracking was bad for the environment. So they lobbied and supplied funds to the Democratic party. Why? Because the leftist are usually the ones who support ANY and ALL environmental regulations. Do you remember all the legal battles that fracking had to go through? Hell, it’s still illegal in most blue states. Do you now understand why the Saudis donated so much money to the Clinton campaign? She was HEAVILY favored to win and if she did, you can bet your ass that illegalizing fracking would have been on the top of her list, returning us to dependence on arab oil. But… this didn’t work either. Fracking continued. And then, a shitstorm of reality hit them hard.
    You see, KSA had vastly underestimated the amount of total shale reserves in North America. They had no idea that so much of this stuff exists. They thought maybe they could ride it out if the reserves would dry up in a decade or so. But nope. We have enough shale to supply us for at least 50 years. Hmmm… big problem.
    So, if you’re King Salman, what do you do? Well, there’s only one thing you can do. Give up the reliance on oil production and try to use existing wealth to stay wealthy. To modernize its trade to include more than just exports of oil. They would need to build an entire industrial country from scratch. To do that, he needed the help of the USA. And that’s where President Trump comes in.
    You see, the May 2017 meeting between Trump and King Salman (and his son Mohammad), was not just another meeting. It was a business meeting. King Salman asked Trump for help. Trump was more than willing to give it (like listing the oil companies on the NYSE) but his help would come with a price. Liberalization and the stop of illegal funding. No more contributions to American politics. No more supplying funds to terrorists or splinter groups. King Salman took the deal. All of a sudden, women were allowed to drive. ISIS was retreating. Syrian rebels suddenly ran out of ammunition. Yay. All good up to this point.
    Now comes the bad
    Not all the royalties in KSA are into this. They don’t like losing the power they once had. What’s worse, they don’t want to become liberal. They now start resenting King Salmon. They start plotting against him. At the forefront of this movement is none other than the previous Deputy Crown Prince, Muqrin, and his son, Mansour (the man killed in the helicopter crash of 11/5/17).
    October 1, 2017. The top floors of Mandalay Bay isn’t Mandalay Bay, but is Four Seasons, owned by billionaire Talal. Who was occupying that whole floor that night? I can’t remember where, but I heard that the whole floor was reserved for that week. Now, no one would do that unless they were Saudi royalty. We don’t know for sure, but my guess is Crown Prince Mohammad. We know it wasn’t King Salman, because he was in Russia at the time. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/05/saudi-russia-visit-putin-oil-middle-east
    The plan is to take out the crown prince. Then kill King Salman. With the King and the Crown Prince dead, who is next in line? Yup. The former deputy crown prince, Muqrin. So, posing as terrorists who wanted to buy the guns for some terrorist attack, they dupe the CIA or FBI to supply the guns to the death squad. Their real plan is to climb the stairs right after the deal and kill the VIP in the floors above them. This is why the weapons cashe was located on the 32nd floor. They would only have to climb a few stairs or take the elevator up a little to start the killing. Now, here’s what happened that night:
    ** With the post from u/kneejerk55, I have modified the events of the night. I think it fits much better**
    Paddock is the contact man to supply the guns. He meets a couple of assassins ahead of time (remember, the shooting starts at 10:05). At this point, Paddock is thinking this is a gun deal. Only a few magazines are loaded. He merely wants to show the customers how to load the chamber etc… What he doesn’t know is that the advance team was sent to secure the floor. That all but one entry point to the floor would be barricaded (crucial since the reason Campos becomes suspicious of the blocked doors is what ultimately leads him to investigate) The reason for the barricade is that once the assault starts, the assassins want to make sure to impede the authorities as much as possible from reaching the top floors.
    CIA/FBI (or Trump’s own intelligence) got wind of the assassination that was about to take place. Immediate action is taken to round up the assassins. Remember, we’re talking about an army of assassins here. You can’t kill a Crown Prince who’s protected by 30 armed bodyguards by pulling a Jack Ruby. I estimate at least 20 assassins in total.
    What the assassins didn’t know was that the prince had disguised himself as a regular dude to enjoy the nightlife in Vegas. (Saudi princes have been known to do this) He had slipped away from the Mandalay and was at the Tropicana playing some cards. As soon as the FBI (or some other agency) learned of the assassination plot, they stormed the Tropicana and extracted the prince. The video can be seen here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVHmshtmDqo They lead him out of the casino and escort him to the nearest helipad to be picked up. BUT, on the way, they encounter some resistance from a few assassins. Hence the firefight at the airport. Eventually, he makes it to the chopper and is whisked away.
    Meanwhile, the FBI has gathered up as many of the assassins as they can. A few are armed with sidearms. They don’t have rifles yet because the rendezvous with Paddock hasn’t occurred yet. Hence the random firefights at various casinos that night. A few are killed. Hence the Laura Loomer videos of covered up dead people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oxAZIpSUuM
    The assassins already in Paddock’s room gets a call. They are told that the Prince is not in his suite above. That he’s being escorted out of the Tropicana. They start panicking. If they get caught in this plot to assassinate the crown prince, not only are they dead, but their employer is dead as well. They come up with a plan. They will kill Paddock and start firing on the crowd below. They’re gonna make him a crazy lone gunman. So they kill Paddock. They break a window. They pick up a rifle and start firing at the crowd below. After a couple of mags, they realize that the other mags aren’t loaded! Holy fuck. They start reloading as fast as possible. This is why the average time between bursts of fire is over 40 seconds. One of them gets an idea. Let me go to the other room and break that window and shoot at the fuel tanks at a nearby airport. This will draw the police away from the Mandalay and they can escape. So he goes and attempts just that. Unfortunately, the tanks do not blow up. By this time, Jesus Campos is knocking on the door. So they just unload on him. This is why there are (supposedly) 200 shots through the door. Campos escapes a lethal shot and calls in security.
    Now the assassins are getting nervous. They realize that someone in the hotel knows that someone is firing. They fire as much as they can. They are thinking as soon as this barrage is done, we run. But the swat team starts knocking on the door. Fuck. The assassins realize they’re screwed. So the first one shoots himself. (This is the first of the single shots you hear at the end). The second assassin isn’t so sure. He doesn’t want to die. So after 10 seconds of courage gathering, he shoots himself as well.
    The SWAT team bursts in and finds 3 bodies. They start asking questions. But because the FBI is already there (remember, they extracted the prince) they take over. They quickly assess the situation. They realize the implications. They remove the 2 assassins bodies, take a picture of Paddock lying there, and release it to 4chan to solidify their narrative.
    Paddock is made the patsy. Why? Because if a failed Saudi assassination attempt was responsible for the deaths, if the FBI/CIA had supplied the guns that killed 58 innocent people (not counting Paddock since he’s an asset), then two things would happen. One, we would demand that we go to war with Saudi Arabia. And two, which ever organization that Paddock worked for would be utterly dismantled.
    Wew lads, I know. Quite a story. Now, let’s fast forward to one month later.
    We know a missile was intercepted by the Saudi military on November 3 or 4th. This was probably the final effort by the anti King Salman group. This was their last ditch effort to kill him. OR, it was staged to give King Salman the excuse to round everyone up in retaliation of the assassination attempt. We know that MASSIVE raids and the rounding of Saudi princes took place on the 5th. I will guarantee you that all these people are anti Salman/Mohammad. And who was just killed? Yes. The son of Muqrin, Mansour. Mansour’s death was retaliation. I have no doubt of it. He was executed.
    Ok, now that this has happened, what’s next? Well, my guess will be that we will learn all of the funding that has been coming out of Saudi Arabia for the past decade. It will expose their connections to the DNC. We will learn that they have been at the root of all the turmoil in the Middle East. Then, they’ll all be executed.
    Do I win the award for the longest post ever at /r/conspiracy? Thanks for reading.
    P.S. The story works just fine with Paddock as a private illegal guns dealer, meaning the FBI/CIA only helped to foil the assassination attempt. He doesn’t have to be working for an alphabet agency. However, given the clues from his life style (or the utter lack of it), I’m betting that he was an asset.

  • GoneWithTheWInd November 27, 2017, 8:27 AM

    OK, Ghostsniper you tied a nice bow on the story but there are a lot of loose ends. Where are those 20 assassins? Who constructed the wooden gun perchs? That video of the police escorting a Saudi Prince had no one in it that looked like a Saudi. Who would be stupid enough to assassinate a major political figure with 20 armed assassins? You do that with one, maybe two people in the least conspicious way possible. The coverup was so fast and so completely effective it would have had to have been planned long before the crime happened, are you saying the FBI was complicit in the assassination attempt? Too many more loose ends to list them all…

    Simple people require simple answers in a complicated world with pacific ideas beyond their kin. If it ain’t on CNN it didn’t happen no matter what your bare naked eyeballs tell you over and over again.

    Yes, they did kill JFK and drop them tall buildings and as far as the moon thing goes, I wasn’t there so I’m supposed to accept the story given me by proven habitual liars, but I was only 14 at the time and all the nasty underbelly was still mostly hidden from my view.

  • GoneWithTheWind November 27, 2017, 9:09 PM

    Now the JFK conspiracy is one I can get behind. I was 20 years old when he was shot and my life was too busy with girls, cars and work to get into it back then. But my family had a friend that my parents grew up with who was in the Mafia and he was often at our house (especially if the police were raiding a bookie in town). My mother asked him somewhat incredulously who would do something like that. Without missing a beat he said “the Mafia did it”. My mother said “no way, why would they do that”. He said “Sam Giancana did it because Joe promised him that if they got his boy elected president he would make sure the AG left the mob alone and as soon as JFK got into office his brother Bobby started arresting and convicting the mafioso”. JFK and Joe Kennedy went back on their word and you can’t do that with the mafia. Simple as that. I admit I din’t really buy it until Sunday when Jack Ruby killed Oswald. That’s when it all fell together. The family friend said that was to sew up the lose ends and Oswald was just a patsy and had to be shut up so the investigation would dead end.

    In the mid 90’s someone uploaded an AutoCAD drawing (LM.DWG) to the web and I grabbed it.
    Opening said drawing in AutoCAD R12 for Windows, I saw a blank screen.
    I did the command series, Zoom, A “enter”, Zoom, V “enter” and the entire limits of the drawing file were revealed, again, showing nothing.
    So I drew a “box” around the perimeter of the screen and a blue dot appear in 1 corner indicating “something” was there.
    Memorizing where the blue dot was, I drew a box around the blue dot and zoomed in.
    Nothing.
    Did it again.
    Nothing.
    I zoomed in again and again on that blue dot, 88 times, and guess what finally showed up?
    The Lunar Module sitting on the surface of the moon, some 250,000 miles from the point of view of the viewer. This is, still, supposedly the largest file ever created in AutoCad.
    I zoomed in even closer and could see the structural rivets on the aluminum seams, so I panned around a bit checking out the details.
    There, on the side, was a plaque about 12″ x 12″ with all the pertinent info pertaining to that “moon launch”.
    Later, playing around with that file and altering the many layers in their colors, line widths, etc., I was soon rewarded with a drawing I was able to interpret indicating multiple concentric circles showing the variety of positions of the moon’s rotations around the earth.

    To understand the difficulty of this thing you must realize that to land an object on the moon is sort of like shooting a rifle from the window of a car traveling at 120 mph at another car moving in another direction at 120 mph 250,000 miles away. And, that other car, as well as your own, are constantly changing directions slightly. True, the “bullet” has slight navigational abilities at both the front and rear of the journeys, but has very limited fuel to do so. And they did that with building size computers with less capacity than your handheld cellphone.

    IF that moon launch occurred, and I’m not committing one way or the other, the magnitude of this whole thing is the greatest event in planet history and the people inside those rocket propelled tombs are the bravest people ever, or insane.

    Would I climb in that box of crumpled tinfoil and do that?

    Not hardly.

    Maybe, in 10 years if I’m still alive, and they paid $1mil to my wife.

    Neil Armstrong trained for years to be able to operate the lander. They called the simulator “the flying bedstead.” It’s one of those balance the angel on the head of the pin things, and if you get it wrong, it goes very bad very fast. At least once he had to eject from the simulator.

    The last few minutes of the landing were just a bit dicey. They had trained on pictures of the expected path to the landing site. But they weren’t seeing what they should have been seeing. They were seeing a whole lot of big rocks, instead of a nice flat target. And since they can’t see what’s underneath them at landing, they need a fairly large area free of big rocks.

    Armstrong was flying it manually, searching for a safe place to land. His fuel was limited. If he ran out, he had to punch the abort button, and the top part of the lander would blast away from the bottom and then do some complex stuff to catch up to Mike Collins, in orbit. Not a guaranteed rendezvous. Collins later said he would have taken the CM down, as low as he could, to help Armstrong and Aldrin. That wasn’t what he was supposed to do, but he wasn’t going to leave them.

    There were less than 30 seconds of fuel when Armstrong found a safe spot and landed. What is amazing about the manned space program is that it wasn’t until Challenger in 1986 that NASA lost a crew in flight. There was a whole bunch of times in Mercury, Gemini and Apollo where things got very bad and skill, luck and pluck got them back safe.

    Chris Kraft, one of the legendary flight directors and a test pilot himself, said they had figured early on that they would lose two crews before the moon landing, and they proceeded with that knowledge. It was part of the risk. Imagine that today! We’d never leave the earth.

  • Gordon November 29, 2017, 8:42 AM

    Of course, if you think it was all faked, we have lost two crews before the landing.
