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 Speech of the Century in West Palm Beach


Jack Abramoff Goes Off On Hillary: ‘Most Corrupt Person In History Of United States To Get This Close To The Presidency’

  1. 70,000 American women have been sexually assaulted by illegal aliens.


    1. Hardly rises to a Trumpian problem for anyone.

  2. Wikileaks:

    Bill’s big birthday gift

    In a 2012 email between Clinton Foundation staffers, Ami Desai discussed meeting with Ambassadors from Qatar, Brazil, Peru, Malawi and Rwanda in Washington.

    Qatar “would like to see WJC ‘for five minutes’ in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for WJC's birthday in 2011," Desai says.

  3. That's the best he's got? That's his speech of the century?

    Trumps toast.

  4. Four detained Boko Haram leaders were released on Wednesday night in Banki, a town on Nigeria's northeast border with Cameroon, said a military officer familiar with the talks.

    Just hours later, the girls were released in Banki, said the officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to journalists.
    But Information Minister Lai Mohammed insisted there was no swap, just ``a release, the product of painstaking negotiations and trust on both sides.''

  5. Please, he is shaking up the sclerotic , crooked and corrupt US political establishment. Whether he pulls it off or not, we shall see, but we have haver seen the forces of US power be taken on like this. We heard pretty and poetic from Kennedy and Obama and practiced oratory from Reagan, but Trump, with no political organization and experience, is in reach of taking the power owing no one anything.

    Sure he is a brash New York real estate developer and talks the way they talk but he has a career building things, On the other hand , we have Hillary with a career of knocking buildings down, killing and wounding millions and creating generations of refugees destabilizing the Middle East and spilling over into Europe. Why?

    She will stop at nothing to keep and expand her power. She and Obama are taking on Russia. Why?

    The US military could not win a war in Afghanistan with fifteen years, three thousand dead and almost a trillion dollars and have accomplished nothing. What will she do with Russia, who basically just wants respect?

    Why are we supporting Saudi Arabia? Why?

    Trump has found his voice.

    I’ll take Trump, warts and all.

    Hillary answers questions under oath and risk of perjury

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Thursday submitted written answers under penalty of perjury in a lawsuit about her use of a private email server while secretary of State, Politico reported.

    In the answers, submitted to conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, the Democratic nominee wrote 20 times she didn't recall the information that was requested, according to Politico.

    "Secretary Clinton states that she does not recall being advised, cautioned, or warned," about her email server, lawyers for Clinton wrote.

    "She does not recall that it was ever suggested to her, and she does not recall participating in any communication, conversation, or meeting in which it was discussed that her use of a clintonemail.com e-mail account to conduct official State Department business conflicted with or violated federal record keeping laws."

    On Monday, Clinton signed the legal filing "under penalty of perjury."

    A federal judge had ordered her to answer written questions in connection with a Freedom of Information Action lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch.

    Lawyers for Judicial Watch had initially requested a live deposition to question the Democratic nominee.


    1. Hillary answers questions under oath and risk of perjury

      Depends on what your definition of 'answers' is....

      She 'answered':

      "I can't recall" twenty times !

    2. Hillary has memory problems.

      So often she can't recall what the hell happened or what the hell she said or did.

    3. It's scary.

      One time she thought she had come under sniper fire when the video shows her accepting flower gifts from young girls.

      WTF is the matter with her?

    Russia orders all relatives of government officials home

    Russia could be prepping for a new "global war" and has reportedly ordered all the relatives of officials abroad home to Russia, according to a new report.

    "This is all part of the package of measures to prepare elites to some 'big war,'" Stanislav Belkovsky, a Russia analyst, is quoted by the Daily Star as saying.

    "If you want a confrontation, you'll get one. But it won't be a confrontation that doesn't harm the interests of the United States. You want a confrontation, you'll get one everywhere," said retired Russian Lt. Gen. Evgeny Buzhinsky.

    "As [Russian President Vladimir] Putin sees it, it is full-scale confrontation on all fronts," Buzhinsky said...

    This comes as former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev has warned that the world is at a "dangerous point" due to rising tensions between Russia and the United States, citing a "collapse of mutual trust..."


  8. Michelle Obama is simply traumatized by the alleged Trump boorish sexual behavior. Her outrage didn’t stop her from taking Hillary Clinton, Bill’s wife in as SOS. But that was not Hillary, of course, it was her husband. It would be different if it was Bill that was to be hired.

    Way too unseemly for Delicate Michelle, FLOTUS.

    BO would never have considered using Bill Clinton because of his proven sexual aggressions. FLOTUS has standards. But wait!

    Wasn’t Ted “the lifeguard” Kennedy a mentor to Barack and Michelle? Let’s check, shall we?

    President Barack Obama paid tribute to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy at the dedication of his political institute in Boston on Monday, praising the Democratic lawmaker’s legacy and that of his brother as “alive as ever.”
    “No one made the Senate come alive like Ted Kennedy,” Obama told a crowd of Massachusetts dignitaries. “It was one of the great pleasures of my life to hear Ted Kennedy deliver one of his stemwinders on the floor.”
    Story Continued Below
    “What if we carried ourselves more like Ted Kennedy? What if we worked to follow his example a little bit harder?” Obama asked.

    Oh dear, Michelle the Malleable.

  9. “All politics is personal,” Mr. Biden said. “No one in my life understood that better than Ted Kennedy.”

    In January 2008 Mr. Kennedy’s endorsement of Mr. Obama for president was viewed as a major step in helping Mr. Obama to defeat Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

    “I owe him a lot,” Mr. Obama said.

  10. More Here:



    Hillary Clinton submitted formal answers under penalty of perjury on Thursday about her use of a private email server, saying 20 times that she did not recall the requested information or related discussions, while also asserting that no one ever warned her that the practice could run afoul of laws on preserving federal records.
    “Secretary Clinton states that she does not recall being advised, cautioned, or warned, she does not recall that it was ever suggested to her, and she does not recall participating in any communication, conversation, or meeting in which it was discussed that her use of a clintonemail.com e-mail account to conduct official State Department business conflicted with or violated federal record keeping laws," lawyers for Clinton wrote.

    Headline from just a few days ago: ‘Clinton promises to hold Wells Fargo accountable’.

    1. Bwabwababwabwahahahahaha

      Laugher headline of the month !

      We know now though, from the leaks of one of her speeches to the banks, that she has a 'public' position for you and I, and a private position that is the real position.

      She justified this at the debate by referencing Abraham Lincoln !!

      How can one ever trust such a woman ?






    2. Hillary Invokes 'Can Not Recall' Defense Another 20 Times....DRUDGE

  13. Podesta Owned 75,000 Shares in Putin-Connected Company....drudge

  14. Michelle the Malleable took the girls to listen to Reverend Wright preach about Bill Ridin Dirty with Monica.

      I would have liked to have been there for that.

  15. Michelle Obama: Trump Tape Has 'Shaken Me To My Core'

    Michelle: "It's not locker room talk. I don't know men who talk that way. Decent men do not talk that way. What Trump was talking about was sexual assault," she said. "Donald Trump was acting out sexual assault, and it is intolerable."

    How about some of the rappers that talk about their bitches and their hos have performed such lyrics in the White House? But she doesn't know men who talk and sing about sexual assault. It's all over hip-hop lyrics and has been for a while!

    So is assault on the police a feature of some hip-hop lyrics, and it's been performed at the White House. But she doesn't know men who talk that way. She doesn't know decent guys who talk that way.
    No. She's only invited them to the White House to perform and then bestowed great honors on them.

    And if you're asking: No, she hasn't had a comment on her husband parading around an airplane 2007 with an erection in front of a bunch of impressed female infobabes. She hasn't commented on that.


  16. Clinton declined to provide any answer to two of the 25 questions Judicial Watch asked.

    Her lawyers said she was declining to answer a question about the dangers of using a BlackBerry not approved for classified information because the query went beyond the topics approved by the judge.

    The former secretary also passed on a question about why she testified that 90 to 95 percent of her emails were in State Department systems. Her lawyers said the answer called for information protected by attorney-client privilege.


  17. Michelle, shaken to the core ?


    On a closer listen, I think the girl is urging Our President of Gracious Manners to "Stick it out !" rather than "Take it out !".

    Quirk, who reads close, may quibble, but I don't think it matters much which it is.....the meaning seems clear enough to me.

    If we had more video we'd know if Our President of Gracious Manners complied with the young ladies wishes, or not.

    My hunch is that he did, being such a show off and braggart as we all know him to be, a "smart aleck" in Thomas Sowell's famous phrase.

  18. Now I recall what Nick the Bartender - who knew everybody and everything according to the testimony of The Inkster and the obits - did in the war. He was in undercover ops of some kind, and he strolled through neutral ports like an innocent tourist, memorizing the ships, their sizes, flags, etc. and reporting back.

    He could do this because he truly did have a rat trap memory. No camera or notepad required.

    Some of this activity took place in South and Central America, if I recall correctly.

  20. KABUL, Afghanistan — Outgunned and surrounded by Taliban fighters in a chronic combat zone of southern Afghanistan, the police officers and soldiers thought they had negotiated passage to safety.

    They had walked into a trap.

    In what appears to be one of the worst massacres of Afghan forces in a protracted and forgotten war, at least 100 were killed when the Taliban fighters opened fire on them from all directions as they tried to flee through the agreed-upon retreat route, Afghan officials said Wednesday.

    Accounts of the massacre, which happened Tuesday near the southern city of Lashkar Gah in Helmand Province, punctuated a growing crisis in Afghanistan’s armed forces that goes to the heart of their sustainability: They are sustaining enormous casualties from a revitalized Taliban insurgency and are facing increased problems recruiting. Many vacancies go unfilled.

    The Taliban insurgents have opened simultaneous fronts across the country in recent months, overrunning districts and besieging major urban centers. The insurgents managed to easily capture parts of Kunduz for a second time on Oct. 3, and hold them until finally forced to retreat on Wednesday after a week of devastating urban battles that displaced tens of thousands of people.


  21. "Q"Nit of the Day: Boston, USA: 'Reborn' Muzzie Shoots Two Cops

    Boston: Muslim who had Islamic “rebirth” shoots two police officers
    October 13, 2016 8:46 pm By Robert Spencer

    Cue the stories about how this has nothing to do with Islam, and about how local mosques are now fearing an “Islamophobic backlash.”

    “5 Investigates: Suspect in Boston police shooting wrote of Islamic ‘rebirth,’ had several aliases,” WCVB, October 13, 2016 (thanks to Robert):

    BOSTON —5 Investigates uncovered six aliases used by Kirk Figueroa, the man killed by Boston police after he shot two officers on Wednesday night in East Boston.

    He took on an alias as he experienced what he called an Islamic “rebirth” in Africa.

    The aliases, along with his seeming obsession with police and security, help make Figueroa a picture of contradictions and confusion: a 33-year-old man who started companies in Florida and other states focused on security and protection who yesterday nearly killed two police officers responding to a domestic violence call.

    5 Investigates uncovered a job posting for “Police Protection” for one of those companies, Bailrunners. In it, Figueroa identifies himself as Muhummed Isa Al Mahdi. The ad said Al Mahdi was looking for people interested in helping him “hunt down fugitives and bring them to justice.”

    5 Investigates also discovered a posting from Muhummed Isa on a website guide for mosques from October 2012. Isa wrote about his “rebirth as a baby into the Nation of Islam” following a trip to an area of Ethiopia and a mosque in South Africa.

    Isa went on, writing that his unique and blessed journey was prepared and guided by Allah.

    Most recently, Figueroa was using the name Kocoa Xango on social media, identifying himself as a police constable. His last post under that name came just a few hours before the fatal shooting, posting a video by Michelle Obama and then a picture of himself after getting a haircut.


    1. Kocoa Xango seems like a nice name.

      Could be some lady African night club singer for all I'd know.

      But nope, it's a muzz out to kill ya all.

    2. Is Jihadwatch a subsidiary of the MSM ?

    3. If not, I don't believe it.

    4. Hillary wants to flood the country with these people.

      Trump wants to stop the inflow.

      Vote Trump !!

      "Americans Have A Right To Live And Be Safe"

  22. The Taliban is threatening 5 Afghan provincial capitals in areas vital to its insurgency


    1. Afghanistan was the war Obama said was the 'important war, the war we must win'.

  23. Turning the USA Totalitarian for the 'Better Good'

    Whatever you think of Donald Trump, the election of Hillary Clinton will be a moral and legal catastrophe unprecedented in the history of our country from which it may never recover. Sound excessive? Think what you wish, but the fact of the matter is the USA will have an unindicted criminal as president and no one knows what the consequences will be.

    With each passing day it becomes clearer the investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal was such a sham that it did far more than merely tarnish the reputations of the FBI and the Department of Justice. It distorted our legal system beyond recognition.

    The FBI and Justice Department have apparently been used by one political party to keep the other out of power by covert manipulation of our system. That means these institutions have been turned on their heads into instruments of state oppression extraordinarily close to those used by totalitarian regimes.

    The Wall Street Journal describes the latest revelations this way:


    1. It would be better to elect Vito Corleone President.

      Much better.

    2. Great article, Doug.

      By the way, Catherine Herridge is wonderful, and very brave too.

    3. A mother’s love is something that is undeniably pure. And today we have a story of a heroic mother who literally gave a part of herself to save the life of her child.

      Catherine Herridge, who was originally a London-based correspondent for ABC News, now works as a chief intelligence correspondent for Fox News Channel. Before a journalist, she is a mother and it was her duty to save the life of her son Peter, who was in a desperate need of a liver transplant when he was just an infant.

      Peter was diagnosed with a rare chronic liver disease, biliary atresia, a type of cancer when he was born.


    4. Didn't know that but it sure fits Catherine.

    FBI files reveal missing email 'boxes' in Clinton case, allegations of evidence tampering

    By Catherine Herridge, Pamela K. Browne Published October 06, 2016 FoxNews.com

    Women who accuse Bill Clinton of assault share their stories

    Buried in the 189 pages of heavily redacted FBI witness interviews from the Hillary Clinton email investigation are details of yet another mystery -- about two missing “bankers boxes” filled with the former secretary of state’s emails.

    The interviews released earlier this month, known as 302s, also reveal the serious allegation that senior State Department official Patrick Kennedy applied pressure to subordinates to change the classified email codes so they would be shielded from Congress and the public.
    The details about the boxes are contained in five pages of the FBI file – with a staggering 111 redactions – that summarize the statements of a State Department witness who worked in the “Office of Information Programs and Services (IPS)." The employee told the FBI that, “Initially, IPS officials were told there were 14 bankers boxes of former Secretary of State Hillary CLINTON’s emails at CLINTON’s Friendship Heights office.” Friendship Heights is a neighborhood that straddles the Northwest neighborhood of the District of Columbia and Maryland.

    The State Department witness further explained to the FBI that “on or about December 5, 2014, IPS personnel picked up only 12 bankers boxes of CLINTON’s emails from Williams & Connolly.”
    The officials were not sure if the boxes “were consolidated or what could have happened to the two other boxes. “ 

    Clinton’s chief lawyer at Williams & Connolly, who leads all Clinton-related legal matters, is David Kendall. He has successfully represented Bill and Hillary Clinton together and separately throughout decades of their legal entanglements since the 1980’s, ranging from the former president’s sex scandals to missing billing records for Hillary Clinton’s work as a partner in The Rose Law Firm on behalf of the failed Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan and Capital Management Services.
    In the documents provided by Kendall’s law firm, the witness told the FBI they were “unable to locate any of her emails from January-April 2009.” This timeframe is crucial as it covers the start of Clinton’s term as secretary of state and when she set up a private server for all government business, in turn skirting public records laws.

    1. In the same Aug. 18, 2015, interview, on page 42, the State Department witness also told the FBI there was a deliberate effort to change sensitive Clinton emails bearing the “B(1)” code -- used in the Freedom of Information Act review process to identify classified information -- to the category of “B-5.” That category covers Executive Branch deliberations, “interagency or intra-agency communications including attorney client privileges,” and makes material exempt from public release.
      Over five pages of the single-spaced summary notes, the witness, whose name is redacted, alleges Clinton’s team which included Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy played classification games to confuse and obfuscate the formal FOIA review process.

      “(Redacted) believed there was interference with the formal FOIA review process. Specifically, STATE’s Near East Affairs Bureau upgraded several of CLINTON’s emails to a classified level with a B(1) release exemption. (Redacted) along with (redacted) attorney, Office of Legal Counsel called STATE's Near East Affairs Bureau and told them they could use a B(5) exemption on an upgraded email to protect it instead of the B(1) exemption."

      In early May 2015, the witness reported, "… KENNEDY held a closed-door meeting with (redacted) and (redacted) DOJ's Office of Information Programs where KENNEDY pointedly asked (redacted) to change the FBI's classification determination regarding one of CLINTON's emails, which the FBI considered classified. The email was related to FBI counter-terrorism operations.”

      This appears to be one of two emails that kick-started the FBI probe in the summer of 2015. Fox News first identified the two emails containing classified information as well as sensitive law enforcement information sent by Clinton aides Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan to Clinton’s unsecured server.

      State Department spokesman John Kirby consistently has stated the majority of the 2,100 Clinton server emails containing classified information were "retroactively classified" and not classified at the time they were sent and received. But that explanation is disputed by seasoned intelligence officials. Even the State Department witness cast doubt on the claim in the FBI interview:....

  25. Former U.S. Attorney: James Comey Is ‘A Dirty Cop’

    DiGenova slams FBI director after new report found rank and file wanted to prosecute Clinton

    Former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova blasted FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton in light of a new report indicating the rank and file at the nation’s top law enforcement agency wanted to pursue prosecution.

    “Comey’s a dirty cop,” diGenova said Thursday on “The Laura Ingraham Show,” “And If there’s one thing a prosecutor hates worse than a criminal, it’s a dirty cop … He threw this case. He did it for political reasons. He lied publicly about the quality of the case. He lied publicly about the law. He lied publicly about the ability to get documents when he could have used the grand jury and he didn’t.”

    Laura Ingraham and diGenova both wondered why Comey authorized the destruction of Clinton’s computers after the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private server ended.

    “If this were a Republican, the press would be going crazy about obstruction of injustice,” said diGenova.


    1. DiGenova said his law firm will represent any FBI agent who comes forward and wants to testify before Congress about Comey’s investigation.

      On the presidential race, diGenova said the "Never Trump" faction should realize there are only two choices in the election: Trump or Clinton. He bashed the Bush family for failing to honor Jeb Bush's pledge to support the nominee.

      "This is a binary choice," said diGenova. "It's her and the ruination of the Supreme Court and the federal prosecutorial function, or Donald Trump"

      Under President Obama, the IRS and the Justice Department were weaponized by the government against the people, he said. "[Clinton] will preside over the most corrupt administration since the Teapot Dome scandal," said diGenova. "This is about the future of the country."
