“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” - George W. Bush

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.

Clinton Cash Inc.


  1. One question: If Trump was building a project in your area, Would You Bid To Be a Supplier?

  2. I already did that on The Wohlman Skating Rink where I got paid for greenheart I brought in from Guyana.

    I passed on supplying on The Trump Tower in AC, but I knew a connected contractor from North Jersey that got the easy payment plan on $3 million in AC. He had to take Trump Bonds in payment. He could afford it.

    1. You're dodging the question. :)

      Knowing what you know, Now: Would You Take the Chance?

    2. :) Let me answer for you; Of Course Not.

      But you would put him in charge of the Dept. of Justice, The FBI, all those other government agencies on the previous thread, the Nuclear Codes, the Dept. of State?

    3. The U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps?

    4. You would put Donald Trump in the White House, with the Republicans controlling the Senate, and the House of Representatives?

    5. We best understand the world through compelling narratives. Here’s one that helps us process the phenomenon known as Trump for President:

      “Once upon a time there was an ice skating rink in Central Park that could no longer make ice. No one could figure out how to fix the skating rink. Years went by and millions of dollars were spent and still no ice. One day a white knight wearing a bright red tie showed up and said: ‘ Let there be ice!’ Four months later there was ice. When asked by the press why the people had been unable to fix the rink themselves the knight said ‘they’re very nice people and I like them very much but they’re all idiots!’ And everyone lived happily ever after.”

      Pretty much the true story of the Wollman Skating Rink fiasco. You can even check the New York Times. On May 31, 1986 Donald Trump said in an interview with the Times, “I don’t want my name attached to losers. So far the Wollman Rink has been one of the great losers. I’ll make it a winner.” Shortly after Trump decided to slap his name on Wollman Rink, if you read the fine print. Now, 30 years later, Wollman Rink is a winner and the Trump name is still associated with it. Just check the Wollman Skating Rink website. There it is! The famous, or, according to some, infamous TRUMP red logo.


    6. Enter the Donald. In late May of 1986, the 39-year-old Trump made an offer to Mayor Ed Koch. Trump would step in and take over the construction and operation of the project for no profit and have it up and running in time for the holiday season. Koch tried mightily and quite sneakily tried to reject Trump’s offer. A very public Trump-Koch feud ensued; Donald ultimately prevailed taking on the responsibility to finish the rink in less than six months for no more than $3 million. The city politicos could only hope that when Donald failed it would divert attention from their own incompetence.

      Instead of failing, Trump finished the job in just four months at a final cost 25% below the budget. It wasn’t rocket science according to Trump. It was common sense and “management.” But the incident also demonstrated Trump’s mastery and command of public relations and how to attract massive amounts of free press.

    7. The Grand Opening included Dick Button, Peggy Fleming and Scott Hamilton to name a few. Everything became an event and free promotion. City officials stopped attending press conference because it was actually becoming an embarrassment. The rink which had been a perpetual money loser started making money immediately which Trump donated to charity.

  3. Only an ethically challenged fool would put Hillary in the White House.

    That would be you.

    1. All those of better sense know full well she ought to be in prison.

  4. Donald Trump has paid me everything he ever owed me.

    Can't say the same for Rufus, though.

    1. I can go further.

      Rufus has never paid me anything of what he owes me.

  5. Obama and his followers share a laugh about Munich:


    1. The concern, the outright horror at it all are evident on each quivering lip.

  6. "Aloha Snackbar"

    subotaibahadur •

    We don't know who the gunmen in Munich attacked, or what was said. It is going to require ID-ing some bodies. There are reports, unconfirmed, that one of the gunmen committed suicide. I am guessing that the name Mohammed is going to pop up.

    There are reports saying that one yelled curses at Turks, and others reported that it was a verbal endorsement of the Hawaiian establishment, the "Aloha Snackbar". Don't know. The coincidence of the anniversary of Brievik's attack can be countered by the fact that it is next to where the Palestinians kidnapped and later murdered 11 Israeli atheletes at the 1972 Olympics and it started at the Olympic Shopping Center. Short form, it is all conjecture at this point.

    And that any information that comes from either the German or the American government has to be taken with a great deal of caution, because they have a strong vested interest in it officially NOT being the hitherto officially non-existent Islamic Terrorism.

    I do admit, because I have a strange sense of humor, that I wonder if a certain Noor Mateen was involved. If you don't recognize the name, that is the wife of Omar Mateen, the Orlando Islamic terrorist who killed the patrons of gay club in Orlando, Florida. The wife was identified as an accomplice of Omar's being present when he bought the weapons, ammunition, and on several recons of the club. She was arrested and somehow "disappeared" from FBI custody. The FBI will not talk about it...

    1. O Almighty, the dreaded Aloha Snackbar rears its ugly head once again.

      How have these bastards gotten away with free surfing and bumming around for so long ?

      Some even waste their days surfing the internet.

    2. What does a Hawaiian moslem say right before he chops your head off ?

      Aloha Akbar, of course.

    3. Get it, Quirk ?

      Hello, Goodbye

    4. You said "Hawaiian" and "Muslim" :-(

    5. Alas, there's probably a handful of them around there somewhere.

  7. From the Editorial Board of The Washington Post:

    DONALD J. TRUMP, until now a Republican problem, this week became a challenge the nation must confront and overcome. The real estate tycoon is uniquely unqualified to serve as president, in experience and temperament. He is mounting a campaign of snarl and sneer, not substance. To the extent he has views, they are wrong in their diagnosis of America’s problems and dangerous in their proposed solutions. Mr. Trump’s politics of denigration and division could strain the bonds that have held a diverse nation together. His contempt for constitutional norms might reveal the nation’s two-century-old experiment in checks and balances to be more fragile than we knew.

    Any one of these characteristics would be disqualifying; together, they make Mr. Trump a peril. We recognize that this is not the usual moment to make such a statement. In an ordinary election year, we would acknowledge the Republican nominee, move on to the Democratic convention and spend the following months, like other voters, evaluating the candidates’ performance in debates, on the stump and in position papers. This year we will follow the campaign as always, offering honest views on all the candidates. But we cannot salute the Republican nominee or pretend that we might endorse him this fall. A Trump presidency would be dangerous for the nation and the world.

    Why are we so sure? Start with experience. It has been 64 years since a major party nominated anyone for president who did not have electoral experience. That experiment turned out pretty well — but Mr. Trump, to put it mildly, is no Dwight David Eisenhower. Leading the Allied campaign to liberate Europe from the Nazis required strategic and political skills of the first order, and Eisenhower — though he liked to emphasize his common touch as he faced the intellectual Democrat Adlai Stevenson — was shrewd, diligent, humble and thoughtful.

    Washington Post

    1. Obama, the Supreme Unifier in Chief.

    2. Yeah. Read that shit and laughed my butt off. The Libs, especially those in charge of the barracoon, are really scared. Their little modern day slave party is endangered. Are there any bigger racists than the Democratic Party?

  8. 'Boom boom boom - he's killing the kids':

    Gunman shouting 'Allahu Akbar' executed children in Munich McDonald's before rampaging through mall killing NINE with police now hunting three attackers

    A number of people have been killed and another 10 people are injured after gunmen went on a shooting rampage

    Terrified shoppers were seen running for their lives from the Olympia Shopping Centre after hearing gunshots

    Witnesses said that the shopping centre gunman screamed 'I'm German' and 'Allahu Akbar' before shooting

    Gunman reportedly fled after his shooting spree on the city underground network, which has now been shut down

  9. Obama: Munich attack doesn't affirm Donald Trump's dark worldview


    1. "Nobody knows that better than me."

      ...he just said that to bother Bob.

  10. Balcony Man: "You fucking Asshole you..."

    Shooter: "Because of you I was bullied for 7 years..."

    Balcony Man: "You wanker you. you're a wanker"

    Shooter: "...and now I have to buy a gun to shoot you"

    Balcony Man: "a gun! fuck off! your head should be cut off/open you asshole"

    Shooter and Balcony man shouting at each other.

    Balcony Man apparently to people filming: "He's got a gun here the guy has one"

    Unseen voice: "Shit/Fucking Turks!"

    Balcony Man: "Shit/Fucking Kanacken" (derogatory term for people of Middle Eastern descent)

    Balcony man to someone else : "EY! HE'S GOT A GUN! He has loaded his gun! Get the cops here! He's walking around here the wanker!"

    Shooter: "I am German."

    Balcony Man: "You're a wanker is what you are"

    Shooter: "Stop filming!"

    Balcony Man: "A wanker is what you are, what the fuck are you doing?"

    Shooter: "Yeah what, I was born here!"

    Balcony Man: "Yeah and what the fuck you think you're doing???"

    Shooter: "I grew up here in the Hartz 4 (unemployment benefits in Germany) area, in the [unintelligible] region here in Hasenbergl.

    Balcony Man and Shooter talk at same time, can't make it out. Shooter says something about "Behandlung" which is "treatment" in both medical treatment or just how you treat people,not sure which one he means. Balcony Man says something like "Yeah treatment is something for you"

    Shooter: "I haven't done anything here for [unintelligible]"

    Shooter: "Shut your snout/mouth, sir" (He is using the German "Sie" which is a politer form, Schnauze is "snout" and a slang)

    Balcony Man: "You cunt you"

    Balcony Man: "HEY! HE'S ON THE UPPER FLOOR HERE [unintelligible]"

    Filming man goes into cover, shooter starts firing.

    Balcony man calls him a cunt again.

    Balcony man: "They must have been shitting into your head" (A German slang for "Your mind is fucked up)

    Shooter: "They have not! They have NOT, that's the thing! They have NOT!"


    1. Hmmmp....nice polite cultural interchange....all we need do is learn to communicate with these people....

    2. Did Balcony Man survive this cultural exchange ?

      It's possible we will be hearing about such a discussion coming from Hamtramck, Michigan one of these days, where a newly elected City Councilman has promised:

      "First we show the Poles, then everybody else"

    3. Must remember this -

      "They must have been shitting into your head" (A German slang for "Your mind is fucked up)

      - for future use.

      German is such a lovely language.

      I read somewhere that the Lady's Room is the 'sitzundpisser'....

    4. Shooter was an 18 year old Germano/Iranian turd....

    5. ....who bit, so to speak, the hands that were feeding him....

    6. Fox is reporting there are at least one and a half million new undocumented moslem immigrants in Germany....thanks to Frau Merkel. Someone must have been shitting in her head.

    7. Hillary, who wants to destroy the USA as surely as Obama wishes to do, wants to emulate Merkel and open the flood gates to them....

    8. It's insane.

      Why not just peacefully take the 'Welcome' sign down and keep them out ?

    9. What both Europe and the USA need is a ban on assault style moslem immigrants, and since they all may easily become assault style moslem immigrants we need to ban them all from coming here.

      Exactly why do we need the trouble ?

      When it can be so peacefully and easily avoided ?

    10. This Germano/Iranian turd waltzed into the local McDonald's and shot the kids.

    11. .

      So far the only thing they seem to know about this guy was that he was nutz.

      Under your scenario, we would need to deport all the faux farmers in Moscow, ID.


    12. Someone has obviously been shitting into your head.

      And of late it seems to be on a daily basis.

      We faux farmers of Idaho are not known for shouting the Akbar and shooting the kids at the local McDonald's.

      What we know about him was that he was Islamic, and shouted the Akbar, and killed people.

      You may think he was nutz, but then he would think you are nutz.

      I suggest we keep them out of North America, then we don't need argue about who is nutz.

      And the kids at McDonald's can go about their play, as they should.

    13. Here, Shit For Brains -

      Another Day, Another Jihad Massacre

      This time in Munich.

      July 22, 2016

      Robert Spencer

      The events unfolded in predictable fashion: a young Iranian Muslim opened fire at a shopping mall in Munich while screaming “Allahu akbar,” and initial mainstream media reports were that the gunman was a “right-wing extremist,” lashing out on the fifth anniversary of the Norwegian madman Anders Breivik’s massacre, while screaming out his hatred for foreigners.

      As it happened, it was someone else screaming his hatred for foreigners at the jihad murderer, not the other way around, but once again, the lie had gotten halfway around the world before the truth had a chance to put on its shoes.

      And the same old comedy, the familiar one that plays out every week now in modern, multicultural Europe and North America, duly played out again, to an increasingly bored and indifferent crowd. Munich police chief Hubertus Andrae informed the world that the young jihadi had no known links to jihad terror groups, and added: “The motive or explanation for this crime is completely unclear.”

      Unclear? Really? What is it about “Allahu akbar” and the gunning-down of innocent civilians that you don’t understand, Herr Andrae? And the answer, of course, is: everything. Hubertus Andrae, and Angela Merkel, and Theresa May, and Manuel Valls, and John Kerry, and Barack Obama, and every last one of the other Western leaders are resolutely and determinedly ignorant about what it means when a young Iranian Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar” opens fire in a shopping mall....


  11. So HRC and the dims decide to go with a straight white guy? No color? No LGBTQ? WTF? The height of hypocrisy! They are running scared.

    1. I don't get it.

      She's likely to win Virginia anyway.

      I don't get Trump's pick either.

      Maybe they were the only ones that would say 'yes' on either side.

    2. Seems like a pretty easy way to pick up a few million more Catholic votes.

  12. You were supposed to correct this Bob:

    "Nobody knows that better than me."

    1. I got to writing a letter to my Niece, who is in Germany, quoting that high level cultural exchange between Balcony Man and Crazy Ass Shooter that you put up.

      I'll be happy when she gets the hell out of there, which should be soon now. Nobody hopes for that more than me, myself, and I.

  13. What the hell has happened to my Fox News?

    All I can get is something called Raza.com which seems concentrated on some family drama in Arabic script and lingo....

    F..k it, I'll drive into the Casino instead.


    Has someone been shitting into my head ?

    1. .

      If they will give you odds on it at the casino, take it.



  14. John Kerry: Refrigerants Just as Deadly as ISIS

    Air conditioners and refrigerators pose as big a threat to “life on the planet” as the threat of terrorism, Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday.

    “Yesterday, I met in Washington with 45 nations — defense ministers and foreign ministers — as we were working together on the challenge of [the Islamic State], and terrorism,” he said. “It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we — you — are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.”


    1. Someone has been shitting into Kerry's head.

    2. They have not! They have NOT, that's the thing! They have NOT!

  15. Turkey – Roger Out

    Why NATO has a ticking time bomb on its hands.

    July 22, 2016

    Caroline Glick

    ....Under the circumstances, if NATO takes its job of protecting the free world seriously, it has no choice but to quit with the business as usual routine and kick Turkey out of the alliance, withdraw its personnel and either remove or disable the nuclear weapons it fields in the country.

    As for anti-ISIS operations, the US will have to move its bases to Iraqi Kurdistan and embrace the Kurds as the strategic allies they have clearly become.

    In the aftermath of the failed coup, Turkey is a time bomb. It cannot be defused. It will go off. The only way to protect the free world from the aftershocks is by closing the border and battening down the hatches.
