All The Best


I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.

My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.

At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

Wikileaks - Exposing the bullshit of the US political, diplomatic and military bosses.


  1. The Arab Spring - brought to you by:

    PFC Bradley Manning

    No wonder Bolton wants to fry him. Think of all the trouble he has caused.

    On the other hand, I'd sure like to see all of Hillary's recent communications.

    1. .

      An enraged baaaaa rises from Idaho.


    2. Your watch maker friend is back, see below.

    3. "No wonder Bolton wants to fry him."

      I said, no wonder Bolton wants to fry him. I did not say I wanted to fry him. I said, I'd sure like to see all of Hillary's recent communications.

      The video made clear Manning touched off a lot of woeful consequences, dumb shit.

      Time to watch the House hearings!

    4. U needs to spend a while learning much more
      or figuring out more, Quirk.

  2. We do prefer to not know the lies of the the liars who rule.

  3. I am now not positive the place you are getting your information, however
    great topic. I needs to spend a while learning much more
    or figuring out more. Thanks for magnificent info
    I used to be searching for this info for my mission.

    My blog ... Replica Watches

    1. "I needs to spend a while learning much more
      or figuring out more."

      Replica, you and Quirk can be roomies and go to community college together. You will have to pay the rent, Quirk has never worked. He needs learning too. He never went to school, except a 'super salesman' school online.

  4. A Hunch

    >An ominous reason that Assad has cut off internet access might be because he is about ready to do something that he doesn't want reported on social networking or other websites. Given the pathetic response of the west to his use of chemical weapons, perhaps he is about to expand their use and doesn't want any living witnesses to confirm it.<

    Syria vanishes from the internet
    Rick Moran


    1. .

      Might be, the speculative crux of most American Thinker articles. Rick Moran, speculator-in-chief.

      If we are going to 'speculate', here's one. An 'ominous reason the U.S. might be' stockpiling ammo where even the post office gets its share of military rounds is that NATO at one point was running out of ammo in Libya and they don't want to come up short again while providing arms and ammo to the rebels, or even worse, come up short when NATO enters the Syrian conflict directly.


    2. Might be that the insurgents are using the Inet to communicate, and the government does want to put a damper on those communications.

      Might be that the Inet does not benefit the government, as it facilitates the transfer of funds, out of the country, so it was shut down.

      Might be ...

    3. "If we are going to 'speculate', here's one. An 'ominous reason the U.S. might be' stockpiling ammo where even the post office gets its share of military rounds is that NATO at one point was running out of ammo in Libya and they don't want to come up short again while providing arms and ammo to the rebels, or even worse, come up short when NATO enters the Syrian conflict directly."

      (((Might be))), but it's not.

      You better stay out of the (((might be))) game, Quirk, you are obviously not good at it.

      What are you doing (((might being))) anyway? You are the big critic of the genre.

    4. (((Might be))), the speculative crux of many posts by Quirk.

      O, what might have been, had not Quirk become a super salesman, wasting a life by fleecing people.

      It saddens one horribly just to think of it.

    5. .

      You merely prove my point.

      All the info on Syria coming from Rick Moron and the American Thinker is speculative . Might be. It is assumed... It is speculated...

      And you soak it up like nectar.

      Forget the English classes. Try taking one in critical thinking.


      Too funny.


  5. Glenn Beck Offends Jews By Depicting Mayor Bloomberg in Nazi-Style Salute

    Glenn Beck roused the National Rifle Association's annual convention this weekend with his attacks on New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but he also aroused criticism by a major Jewish group for depicting the mayor giving what appears to be a a Nazi salute.

    The head of the Anti-Defamation League called Becks' comments "deeply offensive on so many levels," and B'nai B'rith called for Beck to apologize.

    "Glenn Beck, the keynote speaker at the NRA's annual convention, trivializes the Holocaust when he compares New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to Adolf Hitler," B'nai B'rith told ABC News.

    Our own poster quot told US that ...

    Hitler, qout wrote, was right, his own father, was wrong.

    Looks like Glenn Beck thinks Mr Bloomberg feels the same way. That Bloomberg thinks, like Hitler, that government needs the power to ban whatever the practitioners of government do not approve of...

    So many Americans ...

    1. Deuce, please delete the above post as it is an outright slanderous lie.

      Thank you

    2. It is to bad that the Communists never developed an iconic salute.

      Bloomberg could have been depicted as Stalin or even Fidel, it a given that Bloomie does not have the hair or beard, to do a good Fidel.

      Even as New York and Boston ever more tightly embrace authoritarianism.
      In their search of security, from feeling fearful.

    3. That post is definately not slander
      Two days after the Patriot Day bombing in Boston ...
      There was a request made to change the name of this blog.

      Hitler, quot wrote, was right, his father wrong ...

      He wantd Deuce to change the name of the blog, to celebrate that idea.

      Of course Deuce declined, not even giving the vile and contemptuous idea that Hitler could have been right room to grow.

      As to qout's father, he may often have been wrong, how could we know.

      Regardless, to paraphrase quot's statement, is not slanderous.
      It is not libelous.

      It is the truth, revealed.

    4. The definitive answer to ...

      What is quot?

      It's in the works.

    5. Deuce, Please delete all of the above posts as they are slanderous lies.

      To allow these lies to remain tarnish this blog.

    6. Two days after the Patriot Day Bombing ...

      Hitler, quot wrote, was right, his own father wrong.

      Read it and weep, quot.

      The truth is never libel.

    7. Deuce, Please delete all of the above posts as they are slanderous lies. They are NOT my words.

    Where and how are classified US government documents leaked, who is responsible and where are the investigations of this illegal actions.

    For anyone to think that the background of a faceless blogger will become more important than the pedophilia, political abuse of power and the "cover up" of Foley's behaviour is delusional about the Media and the Public, both.

    To say the least.

    1. This is how you quote someone's exact words

      Posting the exact words of those you are posting is fact and truth.

      If you post out of context words, words that are re-arranged?

      you are a liar.

    2. Now if you want here is an excellent example of "cleaning up the blog"

    3. That was not the standard you applied to me.

      It is not the standard I will apply to you.

      I will better your standard though, I will tell the reader where to find it, if they want to look.

      Goose and Gander, bitch, you'll be hoisted on your own petard.

      Go tell your teacher.

    4. Indeed, you told us you had no responsibility to prrovide evidence to your charges against me.

      You accused me of confessing to murder, without ever providing the date of this supposed confession. Never providing a quote or even to paraphrase what supposedly wwas written.

      No one could, but you, could recall this "confession". boobie thought he "remembered" some type of anecdotal use of euphemisms, but no "confession"

      Two days after the Patriot Day bombings ....

      Hitler, quot wrote, was right, his father wrong.

      He wanted Deuce to change the name of the blog to celebrate quot's revelation.

      The name of the blog remains unchanged.

    5. It's a new day "desert rat" it's a new blog.

      The standards of yesterday are over.

      Your crimes against humanity cannot be proven since you deleted your confessions. Since we cannot PROVE you posted your admission to murder of unarmed civilians we cannot accuse you in this NEW and improved blog of your real crimes.

      Now we all know your out and out stalking of myself and others that led to the notification of the FBI of your illegal and violent nature.

      It's a fact.

      But since this blog no longer wants to deal with that "sort of" behavior, new standards are in place.

      Mis-quoting and lying is not to tolerated.

      If we hold suspicions of your crimes? We cannot say anything about them since we cannot post the EXACT confession you made.

      My position holds true.

      You, by MISQUOTING my exact words IN CONTEXT are a liar and are a tarnish to this blog.


    6. Now this is an example of a on topic post:

      desert rat Mon Oct 02 2006, 11:09:00 AM EDT

      To say the least.

      Now read the context and words and apply them to today's thread....

      Draw your own conclusion about the poster's track record of being right or wrong...

      The post was from 2006.

      Kinda says it all.......

  7. Now we know who is responsible

    The US Army soldier involved is in the stockade.
    Which is where he belongs

    The other fella, Mr wikileaks himself, is in self imposed exile in the Venezuelan embassy, somewhere in England. He does not want to answer to criminal charges of sexual misconduct in Sweden.

  11. Israelis furious over Stephen Hawking’s conference pullout over Palestinian boycott call


    In his letter to conference organizers, Prof. Hawking stated he had reconsidered his earlier agreement to participate in the event. “I have received a number of e-mails from Palestinian academics,” he wrote. “They are unanimous that I should respect the boycott. In view of this, I must withdraw from the conference. Had I attended I would have stated my opinion that the policy of the present Israeli government is likely to lead to disaster.”

    The Israeli chairman of the conference, Israel Maimon, denounced Prof. Hawking’s decision to boycott the event as “outrageous and inappropriate, especially for one so fundamentally associated with the spirit of independence as a person and an academic.”

    The British physicist, who has visited Israel on at least four occasions in the past, has been a frequent critic of Israeli policy. During the three-week-long conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip in 2008-09, he described Israel’s bombardment of Gaza in retaliation to frequent rocket attacks as “plain out of proportion.”

    “If Israel wants peace, it will have to talk to Hamas,” he said at the time. “Hamas are the democratically elected leaders of the Palestinian people and cannot be ignored.”



    1. Righteous!

    2. A double dose of quot!

    3. He has every right to boycott Israel.. However he should also boycott their scientific innovations which includes but are not limited to their contributions to medicine, computers and science.

      Otherwise he is just another hypocrite.

    4. .

      I agree Hawkins is a hypocrite. If he has something to say, even if it is critical of the host, he should go and say it. Caving to pressure from the Palestinians is craven. It is like abetting book burning, aiding the PC pricks in the MSM, or acquiescing to the current campaign of silence being run by government officials in this country.

    God Bless Ethanol - God Bless Rufus


    The Ethanol Mandate: Hurting American’s Economy

    Who’s paying the costs of the federal ethanol mandate? Every family who shops in a grocery store or dines at a restaurant, every livestock producer who faces higher feed costs, and every motorist who fills up their tank at the gas station pays the price of this unworkable policy.

    The ethanol debate is no longer just a debate about fuel or food. It is also a debate about jobs, small business, and economic growth. The federal government’s creation of an artificial market for the ethanol industry has triggered a domino effect that is hurting American consumers, livestock producers, food manufacturers, and retailers. A policy that started with good intentions has resulted in a slew of unintended consequences.

    The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) mandates that 36 billion gallons of renewable fuels be part of our nation’s fuel supply by 2022. However, almost the entire mandate is currently being fulfilled by corn ethanol. One of the greatest unintended consequences of the RFS is the steep increase in the price of corn. As the amount of corn being used for fuel goes up each year, the problem grows worse. While more corn supplies are being diverted to ethanol production, corn prices have climbed significantly. Between 2005 and 2011, corn prices rose by $5 per bushel. Then last summer, severe drought coupled with demands from the RFS sent corn prices to record highs. Simply put, the ethanol mandate has driven up costs at the expense of food and feed uses.

    A few weeks ago, I introduced the RFS Elimination Act, which would completely get rid of the RFS. I also introduced the RFS Reform Act, which would eliminate corn-based ethanol requirements, cap the amount of ethanol that can be blended into conventional gasoline at 10 percent, and set the level of advanced biofuels production at more achievable levels.

    The significant support surrounding fundamental reform of the RFS is evidence that there is growing momentum behind this issue. In addition to support from bipartisan Members of the House, my legislation to reform the mandate is supported by a diverse coalition of more than 45 organizations from farm and environmental groups to restaurants, food manufacturers, small engine manufacturers, consumer groups, conservative think tanks and hunger aid organizations.

    We should not continue to put our economy in a position where fuel is pitted against food, jobs, and economic prosperity. What we do not need is the federal government putting their heavy hand on the scale and tipping it in the favor of the ethanol industry, leaving consumers to pay the price. Instead renewable fuels should compete fairly in the marketplace, free from the distortion and government interference that the current ethanol mandate forces.

    As a longtime supporter of eliminating the ethanol mandate, I will continue to support passage of this legislation in Congress to fix this problem. It’s time to reconsider our ethanol policy.

    - Congressman Bob Goodlatte

    1. He's either totally ignorant, or a lying motherfucker.

    2. Corn prices are sky-high because of the drought that knocked a predicted 14 Billion bushels of corn down to 10 Billion bushels,

      and Ethanol is still selling for $0.62/gal Less than gasoline on the CBOT.

    3. Was just checking on your health, is all. Thought you might be under the weather recently. Glad you are OK. Would have been worried had the trout not risen to the fly.


      Glad you are just tired out from listening to the Benghazi Hearings.

    4. Just getting over an extremely bad cold.

    5. Glad to hear it. The getting over it, I mean.

      No better way to recover.

    Via the Daily Caller, the five most essential, damning minutes from today’s hearing. And Jordan does an expert job framing them. The money line, when Hicks is asked whether he’d ever been told before not to meet with a congressional delegation: “Never.”

    Note that in the clip he mentions being contacted by both Obama and Hillary afterward and congratulated on how well he’d performed during the attack.

  16. WASHINGTON -- Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) unveiled her first bill Wednesday, designed to set student loan interest rates at the same level the Federal Reserve offers to big banks.

    With some student loan rates set to double on July 1 -- from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent -- Warren's bill would reduce student loan interest rates to 0.75 percent, opening the Fed's discount window to students.

    "Every single day, this country invests in big banks by lending them money at near-zero rates," Warren told The Huffington Post. "We should make the same kind of investment lending money to students, who are trying to get an education."

    The freshman senator said she plans to . . . . . . . . . .
