THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED

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.

Joe DiGenova Explains Obama's Plot To Exonerate Hillary And To Destroy President Trump



A former federal prosecutor says the truth is starting to seep out about the Obama Administration’s “brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton” and “frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy,” according to an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Joe diGenova, a former federal prosecutor, connects the dots on former Obama administration Justice Department and FBI officials who may have “violated the law, perhaps committed crimes” to politicize law enforcement and surveillance against political opponents.
He says former FBI Director James Comey conducted a fake criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as they “followed none of the regular rules, gave her every break in the book, immunized all kinds of people, allowed the destruction of evidence, with no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrants. That’s not an investigation. That’s a Potemkin village. It’s a farce.”

  5. Trump vs. Obama: Who had best 1st-year stock market gains?


    On Dec. 31, 1989, the U.S. represented approximately 15% of the value of all global stocks. By the end of 2016, that increased dramatically to 53.2%. In part, this increase was due to the fact that U.S. stocks turned in a nominal return of 9.5% annually compared to only 7.3% for the rest of the world. The authors, based in the U.K., call the U.S. a “financial superpower.”
    ...


    Make America great again: Did the U.S. stock market grow faster than the 9.5% historical average?
    America first: Did the U.S. stock market best the rest of the world by more than the 2.2 annual percentage point historical average?
    ...

    Jan. 20, 2009, for Obama and Jan. 20, 2017, for Trump as the start dates
    ...

    The first year results are just about in as we approach the anniversary date of Trump’s first year. Investors "voted" that Trump did quite well with his promise to “Make America great again,” delivering a 24.6% return through Jan. 5, 2017, which more than doubled the 9.5% long-run return.

    On the other hand, international stocks turned in a 29.8% return. U.S. stocks lagged international stocks by 5.2 percentage points vs. the historical average of besting international stocks by 2.2 percentage points.
    Thus, U.S. stocks under the president performed roughly 7.4 percentage points lower than the long-run historical average.
    ...

    How did stocks under the Obama administration fare? With more history than Trump, these measures came in as follows:

    First year: U.S. up 47.2% but lagged international by 14.4 percentage points.

    First term: U.S. up 19.9% annually and bested international stocks by 3.4 percentage points.

    Two terms: U.S. up by 16.5% annually and bested international by 7.2 percentage points annually.

    Under these same measures in the first year, U.S. stocks did far better under Obama, trouncing the historic average, but lagged international stocks by 14.4%, or a whopping 16.6 percentage point shortfall versus the historical average.

    This means that, after year one of Trump, U.S. stock returns are besting the historic average but are lagging Obama’s first year significantly.

    On the other hand, his shortfall versus international stocks was also far less than under Obama.

      Trump's market is doing great. Conditions change.

      That said, the increased market is following a long-term trend up starting in 2009. But there's no doubt the Trump tax cuts gave it a big lift. There is nothing like free money to improve optimism.

      The downside? 50% of the country won't be affected. And remember, every thousand point increase in the market is easier to make than the last thousand.

      You will be better informed after you actually watch the video.

      I watched the video. It wasn't worth my time. Anyone who isn't familiar with the arguments the GOP, right-wing media, and the Trumpkins have been making doesn't deserve to be commenting on the matter. Opinions, speculations, and accusations. Repetition is not evidence. We've seen the arguments before. Not worth going over again with this clown.

      Half the stuff is just silly.

      Example: His charge that the argument that it takes 9 people to approve the deal doesn't hold water because it only takes one person to stop the deal and that one person was Hillary who had been bought. His evidence? His opinion. He ignores the fact that those other 8 people are from different areas of expertise, intelligence, national security, military, commercial, diplomatic and they supported the deal. Even if he is correct, it would mean that all these others were either stupid, complicit, or negligent. He ignores this as not important enough to mention. If he believes it, he offers no proof.

      This isn't the first time this deal has been reviewed. Even if he is correct on every point he makes, he would play hell trying to get any court, criminal or civil, to convict her of anything associated with Uranium One.

      Bring on The Report.

      We have heard about it for over a week.

      Release the Report

      Right now, all we are seeing is the big stall, its purpose to invalidate the Mueller investigation by a dick who has pulled this before. The longer it can be dragged out the better in terms of stirring up the base.

      Release The Report.

      Once released, it will be the first time that the Dems in Congress see the report. It will be the first time the Mueller team has seen the report though they have asked to see it. It will be the first time the FBI has seen the report despite the fact that it has a new Director that Trump just appointed and has asked to see the report to implement any changes that are necessary. It will be the first time the American public has seen the report though they have been hearing about it for some time.

      Until the report is released, The Report remains simply a set of political talking points to be shared among the choir and talked about like a big foot sighting.

      Release The Report.

      Or, wait until the IG releases the IG Report on their investigation of the same things and see what a real investigation says about these matters.

      Prediction: Once The Report, a report drawn up by Nunes staff, is released, we will play hell ever getting to see any actual evidence to back up its claims. Nunes is after all the only guy other than the president that can allow it to be declassified and released. And we have seen how he operates in the past.

      I'm not talking about the issues they are fighting over. Frankly, I can't get all that excited about them. However, I am talking about tactics. This fight and the Dem giving in will simply harden the GOP stance in the future. It's the Trump/Miller way. Rather than help in reaching a negotiated settlement, it will merely make it much harder in the future.

      Saw Wasserman Schultz on TV. She was asked what did the Dems actually get out of shutting down the government for 3 days. Her reply...'we got an agreement to 'talks' that have the 'potential' to solve some of the open issues on immigration.

    Class war in the American west: the rich landowners blocking access to public lands

    ...By all accounts, this was a little community positioned just right for fishing, hunting, hiking in some of Montana’s wilder mountain spaces.

    And that’s how it functioned for decades, residents said in court, until Joseph Campbell bought 300 acres at the Diamond Bar X, moved in and started putting up locked gates that blocked access to well-trodden thoroughfares that people in the area had used for years.

    Within five years, court records say, the police were called 25 times to deal with Campbell’s threats and erratic behavior, and his seeming obsession over keeping people off every inch of his property despite longstanding agreements among the neighbors for access to the neighboring publicly owned land. (In the west’s wide-open spaces, it’s common practice for landowners to negotiate deals – both informal and formal – to allow the public to cross their land to get to hunting spots, streams and trails.)

    In 2013, after years of fights and threats, Campbell finally snapped.

    He shot and killed his neighbor, Timothy Newman, a man who had repeatedly challenged Campbell over his access-blocking proclivities. Campbell first claimed it was self-defense because Newman threatened him, but last year he finally pleaded guilty to negligent homicide. He’s now on probation, under a 20 years suspended prison sentence...


    There's a class war going on in the country and the rich are the only ones with money enough for the ammunition.

    Alleged payment to porn star was illegal donation to Trump campaign, watchdog says

    The call from Common Cause for criminal prosecution echoes charges against John Edwards


    A watchdog group filed a pair of complaints on Monday alleging that a $130,000 payment reportedly made to a pornographic film actress who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump violated campaign finance laws.

    In submissions to the Justice Department and the Federal Election Commission, Common Cause said the alleged payment to Stephanie Clifford — who uses the stage name Stormy Daniels — amounted to an in-kind donation to Trump's presidential campaign that should have been publicly disclosed in its official reports

    1. ... the payment appeared to be hush money. He compared the situation to the series of events that resulted in the prosecution of former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) over nearly $1 million in payments allegedly made to cover up an affair he had with videographer Rielle Hunter during his 2008 presidential bid.

      “The purpose is the heart of all this,” Ryan said. “It’s pretty obvious this payment to Ms. Clifford was intended to keep her quiet just weeks before the election so she would not damage the candidate’s effort to win the election.”

      ...

      It makes the blog look silly and idiotic when in fact it is only him that is silly and idiotic.

      Deuce, I would appreciate it if you would.

      Thanks, in advance.

  24. Seems the folks using the government to violate the law, just can't catch a break, in Pennsylvania


    The Pennsylvania Supreme Court tossed out the state’s congressional map on Monday, throwing members and candidates into chaos and potentially boosting Democrats' chances to win the House majority this fall.

    The state Supreme Court ruled that the House map "clearly, plainly and palpably violates" the state constitution and must be redrawn in the next three weeks


    It is reported that Pennsylvania Republican Reps. Charlie Dent and Pat Meehan are now going to have to actually campaign.

    1. The justices, a majority of whom are Democrats, will have their decision put aside by the US Supreme Court.

    2. Maybe, maybe not.

      Texas lost.
      South Carolina, too, I do believe.

      We alll knew Chief Justice Roberts would rule against ObamaCare.

      He was such a "Conservative".

    3. Most of the "news articles" say ...

      Republicans have appealed the ruling to the US Supreme Court, but it is unclear whether the justices will get involved with a matter of state law.

      The supremes may not take the case, or not get to it quickly enough to matter

      The ruling states that Pennsylvania’s government has until February 15 to get a new map through the legislature and signed into law. If they fail to do so — a likely prospect, since the state has a Republican-controlled legislature and Democratic governor — the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will take over the process and institute a new map. (The court has a Democratic majority.)

    7. The process of elections, as to the timing, polling places and manner of holding

      If a legilature does not follow the law of the State, as prescribed, the State Courts will follow the State Law and order the legislature to do the same.
      As happened

      If the Supremes do not take the expedited case ...

      Or decide the State Supremes are correct and the legislature broke the State law when redistricting .

  25. The Flop House at Mar-a-Lago set a new low for the wanna be one percenters.


    On Sunday, Instagram user vacayinbae posted a photo apparently taken at Mar-a-Lago's restaurant. President Donald Trump has owned Mar-a-Lago since the 1980s, and frequently visits the restort.

    "I hate to do this, but this is a total #disgrace , #shame on #maralago , you can't serve caviar with plastic spoons!" the caption reads. "Please offer your caviar with mother of pearl spoons and dishes!"

    The Instagrammer clarified that this was not an event at the resort, but how the caviar was served at the restaurant.


    Vacayinbae also posted a follow-up post, showcasing "low-budget" and "disgraceful" crackers that accompanied the caviar


    The post provides photos of the classless, low brow presentation.

    The post was met with some ridicule drom the degenerate masses, but ...

    Others pointed out that the displeased customer wasn't wrong.

    "Sure this lady might be stuck up and terrible timing to post this, with the political climate,"


    reads one such comment.

    "But she ain't wrong, that's some s---."


    Mar-a-Lago, the place has turned into a real shithole.

    Plastic spoons, so not great.

  26. More news about our NATO ally, Turkey, continuing the decimation of Kurdish US proxy forces in Syria.

    https://www.dailysabah.com/war-on-terror/2018/01/23/turkey-continues-full-scale-offensive-to-secure-border-as-ypg-targets-civilians-1516661336


    The report is that the Kurdish terrorists are targeting civilians.
    The US remains mute.
    No tweets from the fingers of the President, as US allies are targeted with US munitions.

    Such a low point for US prestige,
    the US, our military and its Commander abjectly humiliated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan.

      What about the nukes!!!

      Dozens of US nuclear weapons in Turkey could be in question as the NATO allies fight a proxy war in Syria


      Turkish jets pummeled US-backed forces in Sryia's north - all while Turkey holds one of the US's most important bases and dozens of US nukes

    3. US nukes at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey


      .If the US decided to provide air cover for its allies in Afrin, it would likely launch those planes from Incirlik Air Base, which is inside Turkey. Incirlik is a central hub for US air power in the region and the resting place of a few dozen B-61 nuclear gravity bombs with adjustable yields.


      I can see it now, US aircraft launch from Incirlik to attack Turkish troops, once.

      Then the US loses or at least has to fight to secure and withdraw dozens of nukes.

    4. What a political coup that would be for pootie pooh.

      Demolish the southern flake of NATO, fracturing the Alliance.

      While the Ukraine totters on the brink of collapse, their economy shattered, political corruption rampent and the attention of the US, occupied elsewhere.

      Especially after the economic moves the US has made against the nuclear armed Pakistani.

      Chaos Theory ... Let's ope the Generals in the White House are up to the multi-tasking that's going to be required.

  27. FBI Director Christopher Wray reportedly threatened to resign after being pressured by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire deputy director Andrew McCabe, according three sources cited in an Axios report Monday.

    The report follows news of Sessions' pressure on Wray to oust McCabe and former general counsel James Baker in order to make way for a "fresh start" at the FBI.

    White House counsel Don McGahn, who learned from Sessions how upset Wray was, told Sessions that the matter wasn't worth pursuing, according to Axios


    Man, all the 'Best' people sure have a hard time coordinating their efforts.

    Personnel challenges do dog the Trump Administration. So many comings and goings ...

    1. And the FBI is really just fine, it does not REALLY NEED a "fresh start", or Mr Wray would be gone, too.

      But Mr Wray is not gone, a "fresh start" at the FBI, not worth the hassle.

      So the desired 'fresh start" was merely political expediency, not based on merit or performance.
