          I’m sure she’s no angel. Might not be much of a devil, either, though. High stakes Filipina Nevada casino hostess with some miles on her meets “multi-millionaire” with some miles on him to grow old with. Not exactly a Norman Rockwell painting, but not all that unusual, either.

          Organised gambling has been illegal in Hong Kong since 1977. The exceptions (horse racing, lottery and sporting events) are regulated by the government and taxed heavily. The Jockey Club has the govt monopoly and excess profits go to charity (biggest contributor).

          However, if she wanted to go to a casino, Macau is only a short ferry ride away. It looks like Las Vegas.

            What still bothers me still is she was living with him and knew nothing about his real character, his huge collection of guns and ammo, but did know he was wealthy. Hate to say it again, but many Asian women are sluts because, and for this I can’t blame them, live in a place of either real wealth or very little. She is not one bit attractive so you sell what you have and do what it takes to live better. Housing is cheap there so, yes, $100K sounds strange maybe for him and her there, or paying her to keep her mouth shut. In any case, will make a great novel if and when it all comes out. Also, she knew she had to come back because in today’s world she would be brought back as no real place to hide.

        Newzweak did retract and TPTB would like us to focus more on what Newzweak got wrong instead of what they got right. She wasn’t married to two men at the same time and no two ssn’s, but it looks like they were likely right about some of her different residences. Sundance knew the story about her was gonna morph when he posted that thread and stated as much in his post. It’s easy to catch up from the end of the Newzweak thread and also today’s thread after the FBI talked to her. Happy reading 🙂

      He was still in law school during the Nichols trial, and was part of the defense team, but not his attorney. As a rule of thumb, a low key but experienced defense attorney is a better choice in a high profile case than some famous, flamboyant, hustler whose primary record consists of getting his client convicted while advancing his own fame. She wants to portray a modest, naive, and unsophisticated image, hiring him does nothing to impede that.

            No, they can be very, very accurate. I have a friend with a match grade AR15 style rifle and he routinely pops empty shotgun shells at 100 yards…with iron sights.
            The 5.56 or .223 Remington in civilian speech was originally developed to shoot prairie dogs and such at long distances (a varmint round), not for military use. It was used for that in bolt action rifles until adopted for the M16. It is and always has been an extremely accurate round. However, it sheds energy fast. Standard 55 grain ammunition starts out almost 3ooo ft. per second and around 1000 foot pounds of energy, and at around 500 yards carries a bit under 200 foot pounds of energy, about the striking force of a standard .38 Special bullet from a revolver, point blank.
            This guy just sprayed the crowd, a heavier cartridge would probably have killed many more. Oh, one more item…the 5.56 in military use is designed more to wound than kill. So although not a cartridge designed originally to spray it was misused that way in this case. Las Vegas could have been much, much worse. Part of the reason the military adopted it was low recoil, easy to train. The weapon it replaced was a true battle rifle.

          Yeah, like maybe the fact that he only shot for 9 to 11 minutes and then nothing til he shot a security guard in the leg almost a hour later before the police blasted their way into his room.

          What was he doing for those 53 minutes? He apparently had tons of firepower and ammo left, so why stop shooting and inflicting maximum damage?

          And where is Mandalay’s security footage of him checking in and making numerous trips in/out with large suitcases… was he with anyone? And what about the paper/pen on the table… What was written there?

            A couple of points to add:
            Gunman shot for 10 minutes. At that time, the security guard approached the gunman’s room and was shot. Two minutes later, cops arrived and noted no more gun shots occurred from inside the room.
            This was from the timeline presented at press conference tonight.

            The radio traffic indicates that the shooting of the security guard came at about the ten minute point. He stopped shooting after he realized he’d been found. Presumably that’s the point where he realized he wasn’t going to just be able do a lot of damage and then scamper away before he got caught. It’s interesting to speculate what he was thinking about for the next 53 minutes.

            The traffic is really revealing. (Several sources on YouTube) A Vegas officer went directly to the 31st floor when the shooting started and reported he could hear the gunfire on the floor above. A few minutes later, he reported being on 32 and finding the security guard. Shortly after that, he reported the room number. Those reports fell into the old “fog of war” hole and didn’t get the attention they deserved. The officer stated multiple times that he’d located the room the shots were coming from, meanwhile teams of officers were searching half a dozen different locations before SWAT got to him. They were dealing with a significant number of reports of different locations where the shots were coming from. At about the one hour point, they also got reports of additional shooting incidents at several other hotels. The whole thing’s a pretty classic example of the chaos that surrounds events like these.

            Yes, think it’s time to refer in general term as Gunman…no one actually saw Paddock shoot anyone, yet someone in the room shot the Hotel Security Guard. Until autopsy returns time of death via body temp he could have been dead before the shooting.

            True enough. The packs are most often extended family groups. “Lone Wolf” expression probably originated after the virtual extermination of the wolf in the lower 48 states: the very few left were apex predators and often became famous among ranchers for their depredations (see the excellent book, The Last of the Loners, by Stanley P. Young).

I was glad I had it especially when I thought Hurricane Irma was going to go straight up the Peninsula of Florida at Cat 5 force.

      But 30 AR/AK style rifles in a year? I’m not good with that and not only should the girlfriend have been alerted but the ATF as well. If you’re buying that many damn guns without a dealers license you’re up to no damn good. I couldn’t care less about a bump stock, its a novelty accessory and actually tells me the guy really didn’t know what he was doing or he wouldn’t have used one in the first place.

      I commented about this the other night. I may have ruffled some feathers but I don’t care. I am willing to give up my freedom to by 5 assualt rifles a month if it will help curtail this crap and the straw buyers filling up the hood with illegal guns. I doubt the govt is doing it though I believe they did in Mexico with the fast n furious operation. All the guns in dindu land are not the results of theft either.

      I remember long long ago reading an article about Cybil Shepherd and Peter Bogdanovich, who had an affair with Shepherd while Mr. B. was very married and had kids. The article said that when Mrs. Bogdanovich figured out what was going on, she took the kids, went out of town and waited for the storm to pass, and acted like it was no big deal?

      I don’t know any of the people that the gossip rag focused on, or if this scenario was factual, but I can see how someone practical might cope with a breakup (and possibly a pretty young thing from Mindanao?) by taking a sensible non-dramatic trip to visit family

        Hi wondering999, Note the difference between “Mrs B” this girlfriend “Marilou”.

        “When Mrs B figured out what was going on, she took the kids and went out of town”

        Girlfriend Marilou had no idea what was going on, took herself out of the country.

Maybe he doesn’t like traveling on commercial airplanes (someone was saying he was highly allergic to everything, and an airplane is NOT the best environment for those with allergies).

      So, after shooting for 10-12 mins., why didn’t he leave? It was 72 mins. before LEOs stormed the room. If he planned to leave afterwards, escape… why does ‘official story’ say he killed himself? If he did the shooting alone, where’s the damage to the room from all the smoke and heat?

      Followed comment made at zeroHedge:

      “I will write the following for what it is worth.
      Was an Inf Lt in Vietnam from 1968-69.  Very familar with the M-16 and its predecessor, the M-14.
      Lawfully own a Springfield MIA, which is the civilian version of the M-14.  My rifle is semi-automatic – you must squeeze the trigger to fire a round.
      Now, I am 74 years old and occasionally fire my rifle for target practice ( I do not hunt).  I am possibly in better physically shape than the shooter.
      I fire my rifle outdoors. The rounds are 7.62 x 51 NATO or .308, per Remington standard.  Most of my rounds are 150 grain full metal jacket.
      Ok, why did I write all of this.  Because the recoil from one round would injury an untrained person’s arm.  How about the smoke – I shoot outside.
      Indoors, the stench and the oxidation from exploded cartridges in the chamber can not be understated.  How did the guy breath in the room – but the room was big (1700 s ft).
      How about muzzle flash.  Ok, he could have stuck the end of barrel through the hole in the window – but, there would still be flash and smoke.
      You have to be strong to just lift these rifles with large ammo magazines.  And, stronger yet to fire them continuously and reload and reload.  Ok for a 20 year old kid in ‘Nam.  A 60 year old in Vegas – I have doubts.”

        I am dubious this is of any worth. An AR is 8-10 pounds, and in 5.56, is of minimal recoil. An 11 year old girl could hoist and shoot it. My 15 year old niece fired roughly 30 rounds of .270 Win at the bench and standing before one hunting season. And while you would feel that recoil, LV murderer was shooting some 7.62 from an AR, the weight and semi aspect of which would reduce felt recoil substantially.

        As an aside, 33 weapons in a year is excessive, and he may well have been operating as an unlicensed firearms dealer. But 50 total for 20 years collecting is not outrageous, IMO, nor is having thousands of rounds on hand. Sounds more like prudence.

    I’m guessing that LVMPD thinks there was another individual in the suite with Paddock and that after Paddock was dead, the other shooter quickly disappeared into a hotel room on another floor. The police went room to room on the 32nd floor and I believe on the 29th floor. Did they search all the hotel rooms on all floors? The forensics in this case will reveal if Paddock had GPR on him which will indicate that he was a shooter. If no GPR, then he’ll become a victim with the killer still on the loose. My hunch is that Paddock was a patsy, and that he was set up by a deep state operator and it was indeed a false flag op to rekindle the debate over gun control.

      Was Paddock involved involved in the Obama administration’s Fast and Furious gun running scandal?

      There simply is not much profit potential in buying guns legally from licensed dealers then selling them on the “black market.” There are too many stolen guns or used guns owned by normal people available through private sales that often undercut FFL dealer prices. May be Paddock makes $100 profit per gun, then he has to traffic 1,000 guns per year to maintain a normal life style. Since FFL dealers are required to fill out a special form to notify BATF of customers who are purchasing multiple firearms, the local BATF was aware of Paddock’s gun purchases and should have been investigating him.

      The only plausible explaination was that the BATF was enabling Paddock’s gun trafficking and even subsidizing it.
