    This report was originally published by Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars


    Workers at the Route 91 festival during which Stephen Paddock unleashed his massacre have reportedly been given back their phones and laptops by the FBI only to discover that all messages and videos from the night of the attack have been wiped clean.

    According to a Las Vegas resident who posted a status update on Facebook, “A bunch of people that worked the Route 91 said they got their cell phones back today. They all said that all their phones are completely wiped clean! All messages and info from that weekend are completely gone. Anyone else experience this?”

    “A few different people who were vendors there are all saying the same thing,” the woman later comments.

    Later in the thread, a Route 91 worker confirms the story, commenting, “Of course. It’s an active federal crime scene. They can wipe it clean. I was the beverage manager for the entire event. My laptop is wiped clean.”

    Infowars was separately contacted by another individual who told us the same story. Both individuals asked that their names not be revealed.

    The fact that all the information relating to the massacre has been deleted is sure to prompt further claims of a cover-up.

    While some assert that the feds wiping data is a routine part of their investigation procedure, if authorities want to stop the many conspiracy theories circulating about the attack, they’re not doing a very good job of it.

    As Ann Coulter notes, the media’s treatment of the story and the constantly changing official narrative is only serving to make people more suspicious.

    “I don’t know what happened — and, apparently, neither do the cops — but it’s kind of odd that we keep being told things that aren’t true about the Las Vegas massacre, from the basic timeline to this weird insistence that Paddock made a good living at gambling,” writes Coulter.

    She points to many questions that remain unanswered about the attack, including why Paddock checked in to the hotel days earlier than authorities first said he did, why he was wearing gloves if he planned to commit suicide and why Paddock chose to “unload 200 rounds into the hallway at a security guard who was checking on someone else’s room before beginning his massacre.”

      1. Anyone with an ounce of brains has already uploaded it to social media if only with private settings to be downloaded for preservation. If someone claims that anything interesting was wiped from their device, but cannot produce a copy it was never there. They are the real conspirators.

        • doesn’t all that stuff immediately get uploaded to the “cloud”?

        • Isn’t that the first place they would look? You know where idiots too stupid to build their own web page would save stuff to?

        • Why ‘Wipe’ These Devices If There Is “Nothing To Hide”?

          • The theft of evidence that could contradict the official narrative of a government false flag or hoax attack is standard procedure.

            Recall that after 9/11, the FBI immediately went to every business near the Pentagon and stole (a much more accurate term than “confiscate” or “seize”) any surveillance video that could show what really happened — or didn’t happen — at the Pentagon.

      2. Well I guess this proves that citizens should NOT cooperate at all with law enforcement. You have peoples phones and computers and what doers the shitty ass Gov’t do – they DELETE all of your stuff. I would not recommend anyone cooperate with these crooked bunch of brown-shirts. Glad I have learned my lesson finally…

        • There used to be an expression people would say about if you have nothing to hide then don’t worry about the government “spying” on you. Soooooooo my question is, if the government doesn’t have anything to hide why do they feel compelled to wipe these electronic devices clean?
          Also, what was the situation where the FBI was collecting these devices? How were they finding people that had them and why did the people allow their devices to be taken away?

          • For the exact reason the authorities were able to walk in after Katrina and say guns please and every single person went oh ok and handed them over. The “from my cold dead hands” has really lost any and all meaning

            • The reason people are especially evenmore cowardly is due to the criminalization of free speech and resistance of illegal search and seizure. Unfortunately resisting arrest is a misdemeanor and so is interference with a police officer also . You cannot simply resist being the victim of illegal excessive force/ violence or interrogation, search and seizure, as much as constitutionaly it is your legal right .

            • The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina set the precedent that the Second Amendment means nothing. Period. End of sentence. The whole reason for the Second Amendment was specifically for situations like post-Katrina!!! There was not a single, Constitutional reason for disarming the citizenry. Indeed, the police, National Guard, etc… should have been HAPPY citizens were armed and protecting their property! But the government once again proved that the first step to controlling a population is disarming them! Just ask Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Castro, Pol Pot….you get the picture!

          • Wilson, damn good points. Another reason not to trust ‘authorities’.

          • Back in the day, they had this plan, called Operation Northwoods…

          • If it doesn’t fit the narrative……. go watch “Wag the Dog” …. great movie

            • go watch (((Wag the Dog)))

          • President Reagan said he most terrifying words in the English language are:
            I’m from the government and I’m here to help.

        • Of course in the chaos you dropped your phone and lost it.

          • Actually I threw my cell phone into the air and it crashed down onto the pavement because I was Vodka lit. Ever wonder why they called it CRIMINAL LAW? Because it was written by selfish man and it is criminal.

        • CC, it’s sad but true that we have to look at LE the same way we look at antifa, BLM, etc.

          • Law Enforcement corruption is being called out publically but we are so divided that nobody is listening to each other. The messaging and the events that get highlighted by the NFL are short of rediculous. But corruption exist in the law enforcement arm of big governments.

            NYC is the perfect example. LE are there to enforce the laws but they are also a revenue generator for the local government. NYC officers have monthly quotas. This is a direct conflict of interest to the citizens. The conflict of interest that arises from big government (usually in democrat run big cities) is why sentiment towards police officers is so mixed nationally. The reality is that most citizens are fighting the same thing. It’s just that this curruption manifest itself in different ways depending on where you live. Or it can play out on the national stage with our corrupt politicians.

            The solution is smaller government. Humans are currupt. The only way to tame that is to reduce their potential power.

        • The only reason they are doing this is because it must be them that committed this horrible act and it was probably done for there Zionist Satanic Master ! They need to make sure there is no connection back to themselves !

      3. Its called “backup” all they needed to do was image their damned HD onto a external disk for “safe keeping” “before” handing it off, and recover it ALL after they got their wiped drives back.

        Some people are just to dumb to deal with in this electronic age…………….

        • You’re an idiot.

          How many of the people there actually brought the hardware to the concert to back them up the night of the event? These items were taken RIGHT. AFTER. THE. SHOOTING. They didn’t have time to go home and back everything up.


        • So, because I don’t back up my phone, for which there is no reason, and I don’t know how to anyway..then I’m “too dumb to deal”? What a stupid and very ugly thing to say. I’m sure you have plenty of time on your hands to learn these things, especially when such a pompous and self righteous jerk rarely has friends or loved ones flocking towards them.

        • Sorry, not every one so skilled ith technology! I use my cell phone only for phone. And those who have and use it no smart at all. Technology already replacing humanity! You all so smart, but hat can any of you do? You did not learned the basic fact: Always the stronger dog gets the fuck!
          I`m listening Alex Jones, Breitbart, Drudge and all alternative media, but I hear only TALK! NO action ever! Hillary still free, even thug lots of money spent on T-shirts: Lock her up!
          What we have now we allowed yo have, including robots replacing humanity, vaccinations, Big Pharma, years of crooked politicians…We fully cooperated for decades. Enjoyed the convenience of technology which offered the avenue to spy on us.
          We The People are nothing but barking dogs. And not accident the saying: The Dog which barks never bites!
          First we were forced to have TV, even id free, the major tool of brainwash! Now the cell phone with GPS and Internet become mandatory! The poor gets free “Obama phone” with Internet. The best spy tool for them. So, stop calling stupid those who refuse to comply with technology. e love humanity! We the people should demand not to give up our GUNS, but burn all SMART DEVICES! The world is very old, but humanity was never controlled before this huge technological advancement. We did much better without it!
          The Carnegie’s, the J.P. Morgans become huge without this technology! The Market did crash 1929 without technology and raised back without it! So STOP TO BE A STUPID SMART ASS> What difference makes if the record wipe out or the device is taken? Only the sound of barking can defer.
          Smart man could become in the past successful even if could not sign his name because as smart, but illiterate. Now days to many technologically advanced miserable stupid poor in this world! On welfare, on food stamps, ragged and dirty, but proud to have a cell phone!
          The oldies could succeeded better, because technology did not tracked them! Beware man! Your education worth nothing, when replaced by a robot! Remember the genocide we are victimized today! Remember the Georgia Guide Stones! We are a physically and mentally sick nation, doomed to perish!
          Remember by theirs own counting still about 6.5 billion people to get rid off in short time. Massacres like this just accelerate the process.

        • Tech savvy of the populace is not even close to the real point underlying here ?

          I do not trust any of our government agencies, especially any of the spooks, at all. Again we are seeing too many anomalies in this event and now far more people are paying attention to the events and the anomalies.

          Seems clear now that likely all of these people willingly gave up their private property to be pilfered and altered by the supposed authorities they trust. So we still have a long way tog o to get people up to speed to reality. I seriously doubt there is any legal premise or methodology to wipe these devices , they just did it and expect people to accept it. Likely it is legal to look at them, but not wipe them or alter them in any way. Overall this thing smells a little worse each day.

          • Smells a little worse each day? Like a big, fat rat. Thought I read where police need a warrant to get in people’s phones due to the sensitive and private material people keep on their phones.

        • that would presume you suspected that the device would be tampered with

          • Proteus. if it was erased it was tampered with, not a very complex deal, hey ? Big difference in looking at content and erasing.

            Also if FBI is working for us to protect us, why did they NOT look at the FB content of the woman Jihadi in Riverside/San Berdoo, but they do look at these peoples phones ? Got an answer for that simple question ? These two different acts make zero sense at all if they really are looking out for us.

            • The December 2, 2015 San Bernardino Inland Regional Center shooting was a hoax attack.

      4. FBI agent… “nothing to see here, move along”. Anyone want to rush to the defense of those sworn to protect and serve us? No? Didn’t think so.

        • No fed or anyone else would’ve been touching my laptop or anything else.

      5. Zapruder film? What Zapruder film?

        • the (((Zapruder film)))

      6. Rumors and conspiracies aside, this is sloppy PR by the Feds. The government has earned the lack of trust that they have now. I know that it’s best not to reveal all details of a crime during an investigation, but they have lost control over the flow of info. For the victims, they have to get this right.

        • The government “thugs” for want of a better word, feel they don’t have to give reasons for their actions. After all, they are THE GOVERNMENT. By virtue of their being “GOVERNMENT”, they can do no wrong!

          • most admirably exact

            As Hegel [German philosopher} put it: “The State is closest to the divine on Earth.”

            The folks who created the Great Society would agree. Haven’t the last fifty years been magnificent?

            Like claiming that politicians are closest to the divine.

        • They don’t have to get anything right ? All they ever do is make sure tracks are covered, that is their real job. Should be beyond obvious by now on many levels.

          So far the worse thing that shouts at me is this guys house in Reno getting vandalized ? Something is very wrong with that picture for sure ! All the other anomalies of the incident itself are easily identified and undermined. So why all the lies and distortions ?

          • All the lies and distortions are to cause confusion and theories to the extent that no one will ever solve it . False flags. Jimmy Carter was long believed to just be stupid but everything he did was on purpose to undermine our country. You can be accused of treason but its not against the law to be stupid. This investigation is supposed to appear mishandled and inept instead of a cover up which of course is illegal. Overload with misinformation.

      7. I like the latest theory I read: ISIS hit team did the shooting after killing their patsy and staging the scene. Then they took off before the inept police got there. Now they claim responsibility. We may have “active shooters” all around us …

        • If ISIS did it they would make it have no doubt that it was them. I smell TPTB in this with the goal of another step to facilitate public disarmament. I think it was planned long ago and was meant to fall on Hillary’s watch.

          Nothing is going to add up regarding any of this.

          • Kevin2, agreed. Definite false-flag similar to Sandy Hook as another stepping stone to disarmament. Still not giving up anything.

      8. If by saying ISIS you mean FBI and collaborators that seems logical. Crowds on Demand in Vegas seeking people right before the day of the shooting. There were two Army trailers parked nearby, a drill going on at the same time like other false false events that turned into live events. Some are saying that people injured by gunfire are up and moving with little notice of having been shot. Why would people give up their phones and why would they be cleared of data? People who lost their phones in the attempt to get away? Or possibly acoustic info that could prove location and proof of additional shooters.

        • Aljamo, no way I would’ve given up my phone or anything else I have to any cop or even a fed. People with badges are not to be trusted. I don’t have any obligations to them.

      9. Totally effing outrageous… Of course, that is what one expects from the Gestapo.

      10. I would NEVER say a word to them, or give them anything that I took a picture of or recorded. Just upload it and tell them to eat shit!

      11. The American people are not called “sheeple” for nothing! The dumb sheeple handed their stuff over of course! IF YOU GET PICTURES, VIDEO, OF ANYTHING POTENTIALLY CONTROVERSIAL be sure to keep mum until you get the data copied onto the net and onto a thumb drive you can hide very good. They will tell you you will be prosecuted and sent to jail if you don’t hand the stuff over, but wickileaks will not reveal your ID.

      12. Amazing, “Regular law enforcement,” keeps evidence for decades, and the so called corrupt FBI is different? You dispose of evidence for one reason, to hide it from future examination and investigation. It is getting so evident that this country has a corrupt group within American Government. Our form of Government is great, it is the corrupt people within it that need to be weeded out. Do you remember the UNTOUCHABLES? Time to call them back!

        • Our form of Government is great

          No greater error could be made. It would take 50 pages.

          The anti-federalists warned- the Constitution had enough loopholes to drive a truck through.

          The government supposedly was to be based on individual rights, especially property. Yet the bill of rights had to be tacked on to gain acceptance. The mercantilists esp. Hamilton won the day- government was allowed into the economy, to produce the current day shithouse.

          The bill of rights covered more or less civil rights. Where are property rights protected? They aren’t. The commerce clause shows no limits on state regulation. Indeed a famous jurist said- “The power to regulate commerce is unlimited.”
          That is totalitarian.

          The cover story- regulation is to protect the public.

          The reality- regulation exists to serve special interests.

          The mixed economy itself is evil as there is no rational moral principle that can be applied. Moral people could not implement an immoral/amoral principle. A ton of money ends up in a certain city [DC]. How to justly allocate this pile of ownerless wealth? It can’t be done. . .

          Was the Federal Reserve established for the public, or to screw the public? We all know the answer. Fedgov is a giant whorehouse, created by and for special interests. This is Hamilton’s mercantilism.

          The “public interest” was a huge lie.

          A moral government is barred from the economy. Starting with the thought control centers known as “public schools.” Socialist monopolies from the start. The Pledge was written by a national socialist [Francis Bellamy].

          Who owns property? Whoever controls it. State control is achieved via regulation- the entire economy was indirectly nationalized through the New Deal. And Great Society.

          We used to have a free society. It was replaced by The Great Society. Ain’t life grand?

          The good can be turned into shitbirds by inserting the government into the economy.

          The elite would be up a creek in a fully free economy. Maybe they would die.

      13. The FBI use to be, (I think) an Entity that looked for FACTS in a Crime scene. Now it appears to be the Entity that HIDES FACTS in a crime scene. All inabled by those three little letters on the back of their Jackets: FBI! WATCH OUT!!!!

      14. It is called tampering with evidence the grand jury wil NEVER see them.

      15. You want my phone? You’ll need a search and seize federal warrant. No warrant…no phone. Now, get off my property Mr FBI. Oh, and by the time you get that warrant, and return back here, all the data will have been ‘uploaded’ to other devices….and the internet. Lots of luck.!!!!

      16. Deleting images and audio from the original sources would be considered tampering with evidence as well as theft or destruction of private property. It is against the policy of any reputable law enforcement organization. The question remains as to whether the FBI is still a reputable law enforcement agency.

      17. Idiot Coulter.

        He was wearing gloves because weapons firing at high speed get HOT.

        • The shooter they say did it, did nothing but get killed over an hour before the event.

        • What kind of gloves? Cotton or heat resistant gloves to withstand the heat?

      18. And the “Cover up” continues. But why? Why is it so important to cover this up? This is now out of Lombardo’s hands. Now in the hands of the corrupt FBI. All going under the political carpet!

      19. Wait. Why did all these people GIVE THEIR PHONES AND LAPTOPS TO THE FBI in the first place?

      20. Mike Adams points out that triangulation of impact-audio delays recorded on audience iPhones would reveal the near-exact locations the one or more shooters, thereby destroying any narrative promulgated by the politicized FBI and the false-flag organisers. Surprising that the coverup forces didn’t seize and then destroy the audience/vendor video devices.

      21. Bet there are plenty of phones out there with video and info they didn’t get!

      22. Total Hoax. No one killed.
        Miles Mathis and other are correct.
        Jones, Adams and anyone claiming people were shot are disinfo.

      23. “The question remains as to whether the FBI is still a reputable law enforcement agency.”

        The FBI has NEVER been reputable…any silly ideas you have
        about that are PR spin or Hollywood fantasy. FBI is a political police just like the KGB, Gestapo or Stasi…

      24. I’m sure.after watching some of the videos of the shooting,that almost everybody that had a phone was filming.The FBI will never in hell grab every phone to wipe slick.It is a high probability that a high number of concert goers have some very telling videos they are keeping secret out of fear of being suicided like the man that shot himself twice in the back of the head with a shotgun. It’s just a matter of time.They will be exposed.

      25. “…some assert that the feds wiping data is a routine part of their investigation procedure…”

        Well…then it’s WRONG. Those items may be electronic instead of physical…but they ARE private property. The Feds have NO right to wipe the data.

      26. Mike Adams reveals that triangulation of the impact-audio delay of gunshots as recorded on audience/vendor devices would reveal the near exact locations of the one or more shooters, destroying the narrative promulgated by the politicized FBI and the false-flag organizers. Surprising that the recording devices were not seized and then destroyed.

      27. I used to call that guy “Fanz Prick” “The Fanz” I wuz young

        Dr. Pick, a great advocate of gold. . .

      28. They took Abraham Zapruder’s film too. The public never saw it until 12 years later.

      29. Abraham Zapruder’s film was confiscated too. Time Life published frames out of sequence and the public never saw the film until 12 years later

      30. Never again will people be so willing to hand over their information to law enforcement.


        Warrant first.

      31. The theft of evidence that could contradict the official narrative of a government false flag or hoax attack is standard procedure.

        Recall that after 9/11, the FBI immediately went to every business near the Pentagon and stole (a much more accurate term than “confiscate” or “seize”) any surveillance video that could show what really happened — or didn’t happen — at the Pentagon.
