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.

Trump on Foreign Policy


  1. Here's:


    an article from Hot Air saying Trump will just make it up as he goes along - which they all do - and that he will be, because of his 'personality', easily bamboozled by the enemies of the USA.

  2. Sebastian Gorka is on Fox right now, Quirk, on Hannity.

    If you miss it a replay will probably occur later tonight.

    1. .

      That's ok. My wife had Finding Bigfoot on earlier.

      Let me know when he's talking about chupacabras.


    2. OK, will do.

      Glad to see your fife is trying to introduce you to the realities of things.

      Say, did you see the article on Drudge about the mushroom cloud over Area 51 ?

    4. .

      I saw one that looked like a rabbit the other day.


  3. Also, list of 'celebrities' who are going to leave USA if Trump is elected is coming up !

    (none yet so far as I know have mentioned Mexico as a choice)

    1. Al Sharpton and Jon Stewart have vowed to leave !

      GO TRUMP

  4. Forget Yellowstone... Snake River Plain’s volcano is a MUCH BIGGER threat to America

    FOR those that thought Yellowstone super-volcano was one of the biggest natural threats to the USA, think again.

    I want a President who knows to protect against this.

    1. .

      Much more serious is that huge vent of hot air venting out of Moscow, Idaho.


    2. Damn University of Idaho coal fired steam heating system.

      And I told them to switch to solar and wind.

      Hasn't bothered me recently as I'm to the north, hunkered down.

    3. What I don't get is why the idiots don't simply switch to electricity from the dams, but that's evidently too simple.

      Actually, I misspoke above.

      These days the coal is gone and they are burning wood chips.

    4. .

      There's a coal shortage?



    5. Nah.

      Excess wood chip supply.

      If you'd ever lived in a town with wood chips everywhere you'd know what that means.

      I think maybe you've contributed to this dire situation.

      Have you visited lately ?

      With wood chips coming out of your ears ?

    6. .

      I know all about wood chips. I have to clean out my flower beds and landscape every year and put a new layer of chips in.

      Of course, I wouldn't use those soft wood chips from Idaho.


    7. What hell you got chips in your flower bed for ?

      That's stooopid.

      You got brain of sawdust ?

    8. My first house in Moscow had wood chips in the walls as insulation.

      If that sucker had ever caught fire.....Roman Candle.

      I built a great big bed out of wood for my wife and I.

      Plenty Fire there.

  5. ISIS loses $800 mln due to US-led coalition raids on its headquarters

    (IraqiNews.com) Baghdad – On Wednesday, a US military source revealed, that the so-called ISIS had lost about 800 million dollars due to the air strikes conducted by the US-led international coalition on its headquarters.

    The Deputy-Commander of operations and intelligence in the international coalition, Major General Peter Gersten, said in a press statement followed by IraqiNews.com, “The international coalition air strikes targeted ISIS treasuries and caused ISIS financial deficit to increase by 90 percent.”

    Gersten continued, “The US forces received intelligence information indicating the presence of a treasury containing 150 million dollars belonging to ISIS inside a house in Mosul,” pointing out that, “The coalition aircraft bombard the house and destructed the treasury.”

    “The total devastating amount of money is estimated between 500 and 800 million dollars,” he also added.

    foreign policy

  6. I don't quite follow how $150 million grew to $800 million so quickly, but whatever.

    Glad to see you've recovered your self.

    A man without a self is no man at all.

    1. .

      It is a bit confusing. But then, it is the Iraqi News reporting on reports coming out of DOD. A lot of room for confusion there.

      I assume (perhaps dangerously) that the $800 million is the total they estimate they have destroyed throughout the war and the $150 million was from the one house.

      Talk about walking around money.

    The Latest Aleppo Battle May Give the Islamic State Another Reprieve

    Fabrice Balanche

    April 26, 2016

    Aside from President Obama, none of the main players in Syria has an interest in rushing toward Raqqa, so they will likely focus on exploiting the various campaigns around Aleppo instead.

    Despite the ongoing peace negotiations in Geneva, each camp in the Syria war is preparing for a general resumption of hostilities in the Aleppo area. In addition to the strategically important city itself, the Islamic State-occupied territory between Aleppo and the Euphrates is increasingly becoming a focal point, shifting attention away from the group's stronghold to the east and likely further delaying the Obama administration's goal of pushing IS out of its "capital" in Raqqa....

    These Focus Groups are a good lesson in why we should go to a system of Scandinavian Princes and Princesses....

    Plato would be horrified by Trump’s rise


    But, then, Plato would be horrified by Hillary, too.

    In fact Plato was horrified by the idea of democracy itself.

    What this country needs is a system of Scandinavian Princes like myself, and an Army of Guardians, and the peasants and saw dust brained quirks of the world silenced and in their place.

    Trump dominates Tuesday primaries; 71% of PA GOP voters support temporary ban on Muslim immigration

    Donald Trump sweeps 5 States in ‘Acela Corridor’ primaries. Exit polls show continued strong support for temporary ban on Muslim immigration. This consistent support for a temporary ban on allowing non-citizen Muslims into the United States is one of the driving forces behind Trump’s candidacy. It doesn’t seem to receive a great deal of attention....
