Vegas Casino Industry Can’t “Accommodate” Helping Mandalay Bay Shooting Victims with “Vegas Strong” Funds

by Scott Creighton

I guess Vegas isn’t as strong as we have been led to believe.

On Oct. 25th of 2017 I wrote about the Las Vegas Victims fund and it’s paymaster, Kenneth Feinberg.  I wrote about how corrupt these things always turn out when Feinberg is in charge of the slush fund.

As it turns out, the Las Vegas Victims fund has collected about 22 million bucks from all sorts of well meaning people trying to help the victims and so far they’ve paid out a total of ZERO DOLLARS to them. They are “expected” to START making payments sometime in March… maybe.

But there is another victims fund in Vegas. That one, the Vegas Strong fund, was put together mainly by the crooked casino industry themselves and they have amassed about 12 million dollars in total to help these same victims.

And they started cutting checks last week. They cut a total of 12 of them totaling $14,800 to victims in need of all sorts of basic assistance. But then, they stopped.

“A member of the Vegas Strong Fund emailed the women Friday morning.

“The Vegas Strong Fund is analyzing a number of requests for continued support and evaluating how to have the most positive impact for all victims,” the email said. “The board of the Vegas Strong Fund is not, however, comfortable with continuing to issue checks to survivors because we are not in a position to either vet these claims or accommodate all the financial requests you and your team are submitting.”

Caesars Entertainment Corp. executive Jan Jones Blackhurst, the chairwoman of the fund, could not be reached for comment Friday.” LV Review Journal Dec. 29 2017

If you are wondering, the amount of financial requests that had been submitted to them that they couldn’t accommodate were from an additional 17 individuals totaling $40,222

That’s right. They couldn’t find a way to shake loose 40 grand of the 12 million they have collected thus far to help the victims of their damn mass casualty event.

I wonder how much they spent on paying Ellen Degenerate to do that stupid little cross promotion on her show? The Green Room rider on her contract probably cost more than 40 grand.

Just sayin.

546 people were injured and 58 lost their lives on Oct. 1st 2017 when shots rang out over the last night and last show of the Route 91 Music Festival in Vegas. videos of the event proved shots were heard coming from multiple directions and apparently from multiple different types of weapons simultaneously.

The ensuing “investigation” was fraught with chaos from the very beginning as it was managed by an FBI spook pulling Sheriff Lombardo’s strings from backstage and orchestrated to better serve the interests of the Vegas casino industry.

Oct. 3, 2017: Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, left, responds to a question as Aaron Rouse, FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Las Vegas Division, looks on during a media briefing at the Las Vegas Metro Police headquarters in Las Vegas, Nev.

There’s going to be questions that will never get answered. I’m sure of that.” Sheriff Lombardo

Timeline’s changed to protect the owners of the Mandalay Bay hotel from lawsuits. Accounts of various actors involved changed depending on what they wanted the story to be. New characters were introduced into the story-line to support other characters like Jesus Campos who went missing immediately after the event as it turned out he was being kept by Mandalay Bay on ice until they could successfully craft a story that exposed them to the least possible financial liability.


And when it all got too much for them to spin… they simply stopped reporting on the “investigation” altogether. But don’t worry…

Nobody’s trying to be nefarious; nobody’s trying to hide anything. What we want to do is draw the most accurate picture we can, and I’m telling you right now, today, that timeline might change again because it’s a human factor involved.” Sheriff Lombardo

Today we are told for some reason, suspected patsy Stephen Paddock had a motive… but it can’t be told to the American public for another year… for some reason or another.

“Want to finally know why Stephen Paddock gunned down 58 people in Las Vegas in early October?

Be prepared to wait a while – possibly until next October – the chief of the FBI’s Las Vegas office revealed this week during an interview in which he said the agency probably wouldn’t brief the public until their report is released sometime before the tragedy’s first anniversary.

“Now that’s a long time for some people, but speaking for the FBI, that’s light speed, all right?” Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Wednesday.” Fox News Dec. 21, 2017

That’s the same FBI agent I mentioned earlier when I said he was there to serve the interests of Big Gambling in Vegas. Apparently he’s still hard at work doing their bidding.

If you are asking yourself why it’s taking so long for the investigation to go anywhere you have to remember, they need to craft an official story that undermines all those cell phone recordings from the scene that clearly show shots coming from multiple directions and from a variety of different weapons. They have to take all of that into consideration and put it all into a blender to come out with a concoction that reads…

I believe that there is one person and one person alone to blame for what happened on One October, and that is Stephen Paddock,” Rouse said. LV Review Journal Dec. 20, 2017

They also have to find a way to exonerate the Mandalay Bay hotel because it’s clear someone wasn’t doing their job if they found all those guns and all that ammo in the room lying next to the dead patsy.

No one, I think, saw it coming,” Rouse said. “And I think that that’s important for people to realize.” LV Review Journal Dec. 20, 2017

It must be a terribly difficult task ahead of them when you consider just how much evidence needs to be swept under a rug:

“the FBI filed 12 federal search warrants and issued over 500 federal grand jury subpoenas. Rouse said FBI investigators have about 22,000 hours of surveillance and cellphone footage” LV Review Journal Dec. 20, 2017

22,000 hours of video footage from one of the most heavily watched locations on the planet and Rouse still can’t put together an accurate timeline explaining how their patsy got those weapons in the hotel and what he was doing there in the first place?

More likely they have to figure out a way to drag the investigation on long enough for the people of the country to forget what actually happened before they release their new revised version of events, the final version, version 4 I believe.

Given that this is the state of the “investigation” (or “cover-up”?) I don’t find it hard to believe in any way that they are doing what they are doing with the millions of dollars sitting in those hush-money slush funds.

Frankly I would be shocked to find out the Big Casinos and Mr. Feinberg aren’t investing all that money in some sort of crooked short-term Wall Street scheme so they can pocket the proceeds while the victims suffer needlessly.

I would also be shocked to find out the mob wasn’t somehow getting their greedy claws on it as well.

After all, they did their part, right?

Like the 9/11 Commission before it, this “investigation” is an insult to the intelligence of the American people.

And like the 9/11 Victims Fund, this misappropriation exercise called Vegas Strong is just as insulting and just as crooked.

  1. Never ever donate money to a ‘fund drive’ for victims of a disaster…. find a way to donate money directly to the victim. ‘fund drives’ are like the Clinton flush fund… it goes to them…. the fund creators..
