      Judicial Watch Sues Justice Department for Mueller Russian Special Counsel Budget

      The lawsuit was filed after the Department of Justice failed to respond to an July 10, 2017 FOIA request seeking the following:

      1. A copy of the budget prepared and submitted by Robert S. Mueller III or his staff in his capacity as appointed “Special Counsel to oversee the previously-confirmed FBI investigation of Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election and related matters.” Temporal scope of this request is from 17May2017 to 10July2017.

      2. A copy of all guidance memoranda and communications by which the Justice Management Division will review the Special Counsel’s Office’s “Statement of Expenditures” prior to or for the purpose of making each public. Temporal scope of this request is from 1June2017 to present.

      3. A copy of each document scoping, regulating, or governing the Special Counsel’s Office appointed under the leadership of Mueller III. Temporal scope of this request is from 17May2017 to present.

      On July 7, 2017, The Washington Post reported that Special counsel Mueller submitted a proposed budget to the Justice Department, “but officials declined to make the document public and committed only to releasing reports of the team’s expenditures every six months.”

    “Paddock had an escape plan. He did not commit suicide. He told his girlfriend to buy land in the Philipines (probably where ISIS could protect him).

      So he checked into the hotel under his girlfriend’s name and used her gambling card so as to try to escape without leaving his name tied to the room. And then maybe he was going to try to catch a flight out of the country asap to meet up with her before his name gets flagged to the room. but died instead of being able to get out.

    1. How did he get that many weapons into his room without being noticed?

    A: With a luggage cart and ten suitcases over 3 days.

    2. How did he fire off that many rounds without training?

    A: A monkey can pull a trigger; and, who says he didn’t have practice?

    3. How was he able to kill that many people in such a short time?

    A: He had 11 minutes firing on near full-auto (using a bump fire device) into a crowd of people that had no idea where the fire was coming from.

    4. Why did he have so many weapons?

    A: First, he was a psychopath. Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said it best, “No Ma’am, I can’t get into the mind of a psychopath at this point.”

    Second, he probably thought he would be there for an extended period of time and perhaps thought he would heat up one or more guns. Maybe he wasn’t good at changing magazines? Again, first answer is always a fit. Seriously, how can we apply reason to a psychopath?

    5. How did he get his hands on fully automatic firearms?

    A: Investigation has determined that he had bump fire or slide fire devices on 12 of his firearms, which make them sound like a full-auto and operate much like a full-auto. They are approved by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and are easily available (until now).

    6. How was he able to remove a window with 800 pounds of hurricane glass without training? (I know, seriously, this was a question.)

    A: With a hammer.

    7. How did he get up 32 floors with 400 pounds of equipment?

    A: With an elevator and luggage cart.

    8. What about the sounds of gunfire coming from other directions?

    A: It was an echo.

    9. How does one man come to own $100K worth of weapons without being noticed?

    A: He was rich. As far as what we know right now, all guns were purchased legally over a period of time from multiple vendors. Every dealer and serious collector at a gun show has that many or more, and they are not psychopathic mass murderer candidates.

    10: How is it possible that he killed/injured so many in such a short time…without training?

    A: He was able to fire uninhibited an unreported number of rounds into a massive crowd, where he couldn’t miss hitting something. When we know more, it is likely that many of the injuries were not from gunfire but from the panic that ensued. However, considering the rate of fire and the mass of the crowd, it wouldn’t be the least bit unreasonable to think that 50-70% of the bullets hit something.

    11. What gun laws could have prevented this?

    A: None. He had no criminal background.

    12. What about laws preventing mentally ill people from getting firearms?

    A: How does one accurately measure another’s current mental stability or future propensity to become a psychopath among the group of every potential firearm purchaser?

    13. What about the unidentified and unverified woman who told the crowd that a lot of people were going to die?

    Possible answers: 1. It is made up nonsense. 2. She was drunk.

    14. What about the shots coming from other floors?

    A. Echoes, reflections of other things, reflections of the shooter across multiple reflective surfaces (Las Vegas is mostly glass)…

    Response questions: Where in these locations was glass broken? Where in these locations were reports of gunfire from adjacent rooms? (That’s how the shooter was quickly located.) How did these mysterious shooters so quickly police up all their brass and keep the fire alarms from going off with all the smoke?

    15. How did the shooter manage to record a video of himself?

    A. Ummmmm, I don’t know, a tripod?

        I believe there are a lot of air force pilots, American and Israeli, who would disagree about the Russian anti-aircraft missiles being junk.

        As far as being made by drunks, you may want to check some of the links I’ve been posting. Things are changing in Russia and those changes are not being reported in the west, but the rest of the world is aware of them.

          I completely appreciate the angle. I always wonder why, then, the Chinese and the Russians still need to steal from us. They will never experience Freedom of Thought. And until then, they will keep stealing.

          Take care.


          • oldiadguy says:

            All countries borrow, adapt and sometimes outright steal ideas, designs, etc….from other countries. It has been going on since the formation of government.

            Yes, neither the Russian or Chinese people will experience our Freedom of Thought, but then they come from different culture with long histories.

            As an example of Russian design and engineering, here is a short video of a fast assault craft.

            Like many Americans I maintained a dated bias about the Russians and their abilities. However, after considerable research I found things have changed considerably in Russia. As an example, I have posted about the religious revival in Russia for the past several weeks.

            Also, their manufacturing base has changed and is producing some interesting items.


            This was the last of the series. It would be useful to read through the entire series to understand how Russian industry is progressing.

    Things are happening that our Fake News never see.

    “The Hamas and Fatah…(t)alks are scheduled to be held in Cairo on Monday. Prime Minister Rami al-Hamdallah from the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority (PA) chaired his first meeting of the Palestinian cabinet in Gaza on Tuesday. This has been the first meeting of the unity cabinet in Gaza since November 2014”

    “Hamas has revamped its leadership and has distanced itself from the Muslim Brotherhood”

    The PA thing has more to do with Iran’s involvement, imo.

    Apparently the Tillerson-Mattis good cop-bad cop partnership is also being recognized. India has some fairly perceptive diplomats, it would seem.

    Tillerson met the Pakistan diplomat guy yesterday and was nice to him. The day before, Mattis and Dunford spent 6 hours on the Hill ripping Pakistan to shreds.

    But but but gun stock! (or chicken stock?)

      Yes, because the Dixiecrat or Democrat gun control program was initiated to deny all black Americans from owning guns.

      Same thing with unions. Remember the Union Label song? All meant to deny American black citizens from getting jobs. Seriously, search the history on these two.

    Just an interesting take. Is it normal for Representative Ron deSantis, from Florida and who has top security clearance, to be visiting a crime scene in Las Vegas? He was just on Fox News at Night with Brian Kilmeade. I do not remember seeing him at the Orlando crime scene.

      If he meant Disney CEO Bob Iger (who’s Bob Over?) It makes sense. There are rumors Bob Iger is leaving Disney in 2018 and may enter politics (even a possible run for president in 2020).

      He doesn’t want to upset a certain political demographic.

      Corporate media is not the same thing as a free and fair press.
