Las Vegas Shooting: Stephen Paddock & Illuminati Conspiracy Theories

Hi, my name is Isaac Weishaupt and you’re on a website that typically explores conspiracy theories and symbolism hidden in entertainment.

Today we’re going to take a slight detour and examine a recent tragedy from Las Vegas where a man shot and killed many innocent concert goers. Some theorists will surely label this a coordinated “False Flag” by whomever to push a certain agenda (typically gun control). Others will claim there is a dark agenda at play with mind control.


As of this writing; no clear motive has been found. I’d like to take the unfortunate timing of this event to explore a couple of ideas that others and I have discussed.

*NOTE this entire article is full of “alleged” and “hypothetical” arguments. This website is NOT fake news and I’m not claiming some of these assertions as facts- just ideas.


MKULTRA Mind Control

The shooter (Stephen Paddock) was a 64-year old man with no apparent desires to inflict such horror on innocent people.

His brother told NBCNews:

Paddock’s brothers were stunned to learn Monday that their sibling was the suspected perpetrator of the largest mass shooting in modern American history.

Eric Paddock of Orlando, Florida, said he had “no idea” why his 64-year-old brother committed the shooting.

“Mars just fell into the earth,” he told NBC News. “We’re completely dumbfounded.”

Eric Paddock said his brother was retired and was “just a guy” who went to the hotels, gambled, and went to shows.

Besides his father being on the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted list for robbing banks at one time- there doesn’t appear to be any “connected” data to assume he was part of some larger conspiracy.

Public records show Stephen Paddock lived a relatively transient life, moving to 27 different residences between California, Texas and Nevada.

Between 1985 and 1988, he worked for a predecessor company of Lockheed Martin. Public records show he was employed as an “internal auditor.”

If there was no legitimate motive for this man to conduct the attack, then one option that will surely be on the table by conspiracy theorists is that of the mind controlled “Manchurian Candidate.”

This idea comes from the MKULTRA experiments from the 1950s-1970’s. During these experiments they conducted many psychological tests at undisclosed locations such as the ones used on Ted Kaczynski- the Unabomber. He was at Harvard when they started toying with his mind which ultimately led him down the path of isolation, hatred, and attacks on the public…


Gun Sales

One of the other ideas floating around is that of the gun industry. We already know that the the Democrats are notorious for pushing gun control after tragedies such as this, while the Republicans will cry foul and seek to protect the 2nd Amendment rights for gun ownership.

Both sides have valid arguments; but the one winner that will come away from all this is the gun industry. Gun sales are guaranteed to go up this week.

All of this was on my radar because it was only a couple of months ago that I read about how the gun industry is in one of the biggest slumps since President Obama left office.


Fortune wrote an article on this subject in August 2017:

“Since the fall election, we have continued to see a slowdown in firearms and shooting related categories,” Cabela’s Chief Executive Tommy Millner said in a statement.

Millner also pointed out that the quarter came a year after a mass shooting at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, which led to an increase in gun sales due to worries that about potential new gun restrictions.

Shares of American Outdoor Brands, the owner of Smith & Wesson (SWHC), hit all-time highs last year. But since the election, the stock has fallen 30%, while Sturm Ruger has lost 17%. Ammunition seller Vista Outdoor (VSTO, +2.40%) has dropped 41%.

Notice the mass shooting leading to increased gun sales.

I’m not going to say the gun industry somehow coordinated this event, but I WILL point out they are the ones that will benefit the most from tragedies like this so they have minimal interest in deterring future events like this.


Timing: Occult Rituals

Paddock’s brother said “Mars just fell into the earth” and I can’t help but wonder about the occult connections to be had with that. I don’t profess to understand astrology but the AstrologyKing website made an interesting statement in regards to North Korea which could actually be used here:

Venus generally rules peace and diplomacy, but in mundane astrology signifies war in hard aspect. In ancient Mesopotamia, she was the Goddess of Love and Procreation when the evening star, and the Goddess of War when the morning star. In the North Korea horoscope she is Goddess of War, visible before sunrise.

Venus in the full moon October 2017 horoscope is also the morning star. Therefore the October 5 conjunction of Venus and Mars indicates war.

The people suffer through repression, isolation and poverty. The only way for this nation to avert a violent and catastrophic end, is to throw this horoscope in the bin and start over.

We already know that high profile events have much significance with timing, which is why we often times see these types of tragedies occurring at specific times or places.

Since this didn’t happen on the typical “sacrifice” holiday we should take a look at the location. The venue was the Route 91 concert across the street from the Luxor in Las Vegas.

The Luxor is known as the Egyptian themed casino with the pyramid that has the illuminated apex and obelisk nearby. These symbols are of great usage to the “Illuminati” who subscribe to many of the magickal and esoteric concepts of ancient Egypt and its mystery schools that shared these ideas only to the initiates deemed worthy.


It didn’t help anything to find out the shooting took place on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay- a number significant in Freemasonry as the 2nd to last degree of initiation…


The numerological aspect of this event is also brought about because of what was said about the length of time the shootings were happening on Fox2Now:

It took nine to 11 minutes of gunfire for Stephen Paddock to carry out the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

The first call reporting shots fired came at 10:08 p.m. Sunday, and the gunfire didn’t stop until at 10:19 p.m., Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said. The shooting went off and on for nine to 11 minutes, he said.

It’s interesting because they specifically cite the start and stop times as 10:08 to 10:19, which is exactly 11 minutes; not “nine to 11” minutes.

We previously studied various 9/11 conspiracy theories and one key point to this is the idea of occult numerology and symbolism. They sought to “reconcile the opposites” or raise the middle pillar in the Kabbalah Tree of Life by symbolically breaking down the twin pillars and raising a new, singular pillar as the One World Trade Center (as in “One World Order”).

Freeman Fly spoke about the importance of jumping from 9 to 11 and the symbolic meaning behind the event (*he technically predicted it). In terms of occult magick ritual, Crowley actually believed the number 11 to be the hidden sephirot of Da’ath (as in Da’ath Vader).

The number 11 symbolizes the tenets of magick with connecting the microcosm and macrocosm; the 5 (pentagram or pentagon) and 6 (hexagram) of the Unicursal Hexagram.

Another curiosity to consider is that the Route 91 Concert was put on by Sirius/XM. The connection to consider with Luxor and its Egyptian themes is the same as that of the Sirius-Isis mysteries. In Freemasonry they venerate Sirius as the “Blazing Star” which plays into various occult principles (highlighted in great detail in my latest book- THE DARK PATH). Aleister Crowley’s Silver Star magickal order was named after this “sun behind the sun” as well.

The final connection to consider is that Kenneth Grant (a follower of Crowley who was considered his successor) believed Sirius to be the source of Crowley’s Thelemic current:

“Crowley identified the heart of the Thelemic current with one particular Star. In Occult Tradition, this is “the Sun behind the Sunthe Hidden God, the vast star Sirius, or Sothis, which opened the zodiacal year of 365 days as well as the Great Year of approximately 26,000 years.”


Mystery Woman

Another curiosity is the allegation that a woman knew about the shootings before they happened. posted about this through testimony from a woman named Briana:

One woman at the music festival, Brianna, reported that about 45 minutes before the shooting, she saw a woman pushing her way forward into the front row of the concert venue.

“She started messing with another lady and told us that we were all going to die tonight,” Brianna said.

Brianna claims that the woman was then escorted out by security.

Brianna had left the concert and went to her room before the shooting began, but said she heard the shots going off from her room.

“We went back up to the room, and as soon as we reached the room from the concert venue, we just heard constant shootings,” Brianna said. “At first we thought it was fireworks, but then it was — it was shooting.”

Was this woman aware of a programmed mass event?…


Illuminati Card Game

This one really creeps me out- it asserts that the infamous Illuminati card game by Steve Jackson somehow predicted this event. The card game is from the 1980s-1990s and it’s based on Robert Anton Wilson’s Illuminatus! Trilogy which is important because Wilson was more than familiar with the axioms of Aleister Crowley and the power of ritual magick (putting one’s will out into the universe and causing real changes to occur in our world).

The card in question is the “Las Vegas” card:


Thanks to Dewey on Facebook who shared these images; we can also see the implications with Jason Aldean (J.A.=Jack Ace):


The tattoo in question is here:


Very strange- but it ties into the ideas of ritual magick doing some kind of mysterious interactions with the universe to cause real change…

Another consideration is that American Horror Story: Cult had a mass shooting portrayal planned for the October 10th episode (as part of the storyline). They’ve since edited it out.


OF COURSE he was a conspiracy theorist!

I should’ve seen this coming…

The October 8th article published by DailyMail asserts that Paddock was actually a conspiracy theorist:

The 27-year-old woman said Paddock, 64, would often rant about conspiracy theories including how 9/11 was orchestrated by the US government.

How curious that he was interested in 9/11 when we previously established the curiosity that the shootings happened from “nine to 11” minutes!

The detectives apparently got this information from a prostitute that he would enact violent sex acts with. It’s worth noting because there has been a strong push by practically everyone to dismiss and demonize conspiracy theorists. I noticed the U.S. Presidential Election of 2016 being used a catalyst for this line of thought and this is just another instance in which the public is shown the “disgracefulness” of subscribing to any thoughts outside of the “approved” mainstream media viewpoints.

Furthermore, the call girl said he had an evil side:

One has spoken out about their ‘violent’ sex sessions and Paddock’s ‘dark side’

The quote actually came from an article on The Sun:

“He had a dark and twisted side. But even so, I could never have imagined he would do something like this.”

They had an interesting choice of words when they say he had a “dark side” since that plays so heavily into the idea of the shadow and subconscious interplay (as discussed in THE DARK PATH).


In Conclusion

I wish we didn’t have mass killings like these to conjecture about, but that is the unfortunate reality.

If there is truly an insidious “Illuminati” or occult agenda behind these killings I highly doubt the truth will be shared with the masses. I feel it’d be far too much for us to digest.

Instead, we’re left to find a boogey man in the form of terrorism, religious extremism, mental disorders, or even the allegations of MKULTRA mind control. One of the sub-programs of MKULTRA was Project MONARCH which is one of the most-talked about programs because its symbolism occurs often (including in THE SHINING).

The connection to be had here is that on the same day the MONARCH Airlines filed bankruptcy; begging the question of predictive programming in such a high profile event.


Hopefully we get an answer that can put this issue at rest. The violence in our American culture is completely out of hand and we can only hope to turn things around for our society. The fact that we have such normalized violence in our entertainment can’t be of no consequence here. I’ve long talked about the power of entertainment and I feel this is one more sad byproduct (not that I’m calling for a boycott on violent entertainment- I’d just like an open discussion about it).

A deeper aspect of this shooting could be the incessant push for a civil war in America, but that is a much longer examination.

May the victims rest in peace and find some way to make sense of this madness.

    • Thank you to the author … one who talks about the situation of illuminati but, not being one or trying to get others to be one.

      I think of it like Santa Claus … not real to an intelligent mind but, certainly small children with undeveloped minds can be tricked into believing it is real. And, not exactly … but, that’s my take … the evil fake what ever.

      1) But, I would like to point some inconsistencies that others seem to be making. IF … and I’m only saying if because I do not know Paddock personally (only the lies and truths the media has shared) but, if Paddock was a conspiracy person … like 9/11 then the prostitute and her handlers didn’t do their home work very well. That would indicate Paddock would NOT carry out an attack such as this …. only to create another Conspiracy theory or government cover up. (And, I’m not suggesting that they are covering up anything …. rather they are either still investigating … they know and have chose for what ever reason not to tell us. Like you mention. They do not believe we could handle the truth. That is both false and true at the same time. It could unless other nuts if the truth was revealed … given this was a domestic attack … and most likely not carried out by Paddock.)

      2) The other inconsistency is that most are getting even the theory wrong. People jump and down and say or ask was this an illuminati death?! (Sick and evil minds can believe anything … and kill … for things that aren’t real as well as things that are.) So … like you have explained … illuminati has to be explored.

      (Unfortunately, after my mother’s death … her neighbor walked up to be and point blank asked “Do you think the illuminati was involved”. (laughing I said … that is so strange that you would say that … I’ve never heard that word in my life and now 2 people have said that in less than a month. I was almost 50 years old when this happened. He said you should look into it and take it seriously. I told him the ‘person’ who had mentioned just before my mother’s death … was crazy … (there’s no such thing). *I never explored this possibility because I simply didn’t understand what or who they were. (The death is still unsolved. And, the second person who brought it up became a top person of interest. Regardless of why he mentioned it. To this day no one has ever mentioned it again. Going on 6 years.)

      But, here’s where some may be getting the possibility of illuminati incorrect in the Las Vegas attack. They are assuming Stephen Paddock was involved. Don’t look at it like that. Like Las Vegas said … he doesn’t fit the profile. If Stephen Paddock was murdered … only THEN … does it look like illuminati was involved. So, either illuminati believers were involved or not … but, if they were … then Stephen Paddock was probably murdered … or what they refer to as “suicide” or “natural caused”. They made him the sacrifice for their cause.

      What’s the cause … or the motive? It’s not always the same? But, mostly to get their own way … or simply what they want.

      Seems … to have a common theme: “riches” … “money” … “power” … again, their own way.

      Something called 4chan apparently was discussing a new security product and then we find out George Soros sold all his stock etc etc. One might jump to the conclusion THEY are the rich and powerful illuminati that might stage or buy an attack to get this new security product off the ground. (And, who knows.) That illuminati I know nothing about. And, prefer to wish perhaps it’s a fantasy and does not exist. But, who knows.

      But, what people don’t realize … anyone could have been watching and monitoring what was discussed was discussed on this 4chan sight or other elites in the entertainment could know as well. And, true some more than others.

      Who’s going to benefit from the attack (if not an ISIS attack)?
      Entertainers … and customers of hotels or tourists of Vegas.

      What had been happening in other countries lately … ISIS attacks on concert venues … right? Might the entertainment industry being growing nervous in the US over these attacks? True. Might they want something done … pronto. Perhaps.

      How could they get that done … ? Attack and then blame it on someone else maybe? But, who would they blame it on and who would they pick to target in an attack? Easy to blame ISIS, easy to blame Anti-fa. Maybe. Because you know … illuminati isn’t real … doesn’t exist.

      If the government was involved (and I don’t believe in those type theories … sorry, I just don’t) …. and wanting to blame ISIS or Anti-fa …. then they seriously messed up.

      Or, when someone released the death photo of Paddock … the world knew … not everything is like it seems … and why are trained law enforcement getting this so wrong … those photos don’t seem to be of a ‘suicide’ situation … that looks like murder.

      I mean they knew to cover their tracks a little but, you could still see they were frantic that some gunmen had possibly gotten away. “Paddock doesn’t fit the profile and we know he had help”. It was a hint sure. But, only if people were familiar with the groups of individuals that follow that ideology. And, let’s face it … most have never heard of that nonsense. No matter how real or unreal it may be.

      But, regardless … just find the other gunmen. Motive & Justice.

  4. “Mars just fell into the Earth” said brother of shooter Stephen Paddock.

    What a weird and wonderful thing to say as Mars actually WAS at the lowest point of the chart at 22.08 1st October.
    Mars was in earthy Virgo in the 4th house, the Nadir!

  5. Nope! I think it’s more biblical in nature! First hurricane Katrina floods New Orleans, the major city of occult, then “sin city” has a mass shooter who shoots at innocent people. Just a ” sign of the times” we are living in. We are living in the end-times folks!

  6. The number 91 is no coincidence. There is a sign with an arrow representing the last one with an arrow tip head that resembles a popes hat. It’s all related to Abbadon 9:11 in the Bible. Weird shit.

  7. All a smoke screen, this guy was used as a pawn when we all know the government and the illuminati are the ones who did it.
    Why does everyone who was there say they hear automatic weapons yet he didn’t have any in his room?!
    Come on man. It’s all a farce, all a game to them.
    The media is the devil as well.
    We are at the end of times and of course America is leading the way.

  9. Politics is just the smoke screen to cover up the ritual sacrifice that these evil doers commit. Not coincidence that Tom Petty died at age 66 the next day. They wanted to leave a death card to show who did it.

  10. Pretty good article!

    I wrote something similar yesterday morning.
    As it was happening…
    I tuned in to some local Las Vegas reporter’s twitter feeds and a few bystanders’ twitter feeds, and as the shootings were going on, before concert goers even got out… there were already “witnesses” telling the whole story, of something that hadn’t even gotten halfway through. Talking about “bullets whizzed right by their heads…”… telling the so called reporter all of this, and all the while, calm A/F…. and if that isn’t enough for one to smell the fresh hot bullshit… the camera man would only film from their noses down, never filmed above their noses.
    That’s when I got to work about all the esoteric elements involved here.
    This “suspect” is a victim. He had nothing to do with this and is being the scapegoat for the powers that be..

  11. If anyone is inspired to pursue a remedy to the abuses that have been taking place, this video has tools that are currently being used against “smart” meter companies and utility companies and govt figures engaged in shady deals. But the same tactics could be used in a variety of ways, including addressing 9-11, JFK, false flags, etc. It all hinges on NOT being fully informed – cheat and deceit on the part of perpetrators. Here’s the YT link: – very empowering for the citizens… and scary for the perpetrators. Imagine if the “big boys” were sued for trillions of their ill-gotten gains? They could no longer hire people to do their dastardly deeds for them.

  12. I’m glad you keep it open to the possibilities. I just have to mention the highly likely mind control scenario. It’s happened, it’s being done and used still. Quite possibly mind control and SRA has even been “perfected”.

    As for gun sales going up, that’s just simple logic. We have the right to bear arms, thankfully. Just like the retailers have the right to profit from those sales.

    As been said before, if they outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns.

  13. I have been trying to find out whether or not this happend on the ACTUAL 32nd floor, or if the place, like a lot of places, they count the ground floor and floor #1 as different floors, in which case the 32nd floor would actually be the 33rd floor counting ground floor.

  15. Just a quick note. It is very strange, in older esoteric books referencing Bohemian Grove, there are always tag along references to Mandalay. A great deal is said about Bohemian Grove, but no explanation is given to Mandalay. I might add, the movie ‘The Road to Mandalay’ with Bob Hope is also included, but again, never explained. It has been decades ago that I ran into the Bohemian Grove association with Mandalay, and I know longer remember the source of the information . It might pay to check that out, if you can find the old information.

  16. Seriously, folks, it has become routine already. Another gun control hoax. And Tom Petty faked his death like so many others before him. The clues are there, keep an open mind!

  17. I live in Vegas, I recall hearing initial reports about the length of he shooting and it was longer. Youtube was flooded by video that places the shooter at a much much lower floor. Even a video taken by a driver who happen to catch it at a much closer angle. Also, their is an interview with a man staying in a room next to the gunman’s who confirms multiple men. All that being said this is too messy to not suspect we where meant to notice.

  18. Picture released of Stephen Paddock he had what was probably a fake tattoo of 13, Masonic, and his eyes were shut, as in Eyes Wide Shut, the movie in which Stanley Kubrick before being killed exposed their sex magic secrets.
