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.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

Victims of political rape, provided they are Republicans, should sit back and enjoy it. Anything less is “not normal.”

A Real American Journalist:

Memo: Obamagate Confirmed


The media’s response to the release of the Nunes memo surpasses the level of Pravda covering a Soviet show trial. No sooner had the memo appeared than journalists immediately began throwing sand into their audience’s eyes. The story, according to the media, is not that Obama’s Justice Department/FBI snookered FISA court judges and used Hillary’s purchased Steele dossier to spy on Trumpworld. No, the scandal is that the evil Republicans exposed this outrage, and that Trump, the ultimate target of this espionage, has the gall to defend himself. How dare a defendant in our kangaroo trial defend himself with the truth — that’s the upshot of all the media’s bleating.

All you can do is laugh at the intensity of the gibbering propaganda and misdirection, which is nothing more than the rage of a ruling class nabbed in an audacious act of political espionage. Katy Tur of MSNBC summed up the bewilderment of the ruling class perfectly: “None of this is normal.” In other words, we expose Republicans; they don’t expose us.

“None of this is normal” is what monopolists say when it dawns on them that they are losing their monopoly. Naturally, the blatant abnormalities of Obamagate didn’t interest Tur, which the memo devastatingly captures:
  • Neither the initial application in October 2016, nor any of the renewals, disclose or reference the role of the DNC, Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were then known to senior DOJ and FBI officials.
  • The initial FISA application notes Steele was working for a named U.S. person, but does not name Fusion GPS and principal Glenn Simpson, who was paid by a U.S. law firm (Perkins Coie) representing the DNC (even though it was known by DOJ at the time that political actors were involved with the Steele dossier). The application does not mention Steele was ultimately working on behalf of — and paid by — the DNC and Clinton campaign, or that the FBI had separately authorized payment to Steele for the same information.

Like prosecutors in a show trial who want to retain the testimony of an utterly discredited witness, anchors like Andrea Mitchell just kept praising Steele’s “highly regarded” credentials. The listeners were not to hear, of course, any actual contents from the memo, such as that Steele made his blatant dislike for Trump clear to a Justice Department official (whose wife worked for the same outfit as Steele) and that even the FBI lost confidence in Steele for lying:
  1. Steele was suspended and then terminated as an FBI source for what the FBI defines as the most serious of violations — an unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI in an October 30, 2016, Mother Jones article by David Corn. Steele should have been terminated for his previous undisclosed contacts with Yahoo and other outlets in September — before the Page application was submitted to the FISC in October — but Steele improperly concealed from and lied to the FBI about those contacts.
  2. Much of the post-release coverage consisted of trotting out this or that “professional” from the deep state to call the Nunes memo “trash” without challenge. The kangaroo court was back in session, endlessly appealing to its own authority to bless the political espionage.
  3. You can almost hear the Jeff Zuckers talking into their puppet-propagandists’ ears: Shoot the messenger, change the subject, talk about the “motivations” behind the memo, the “consequences” of the memo, what “Putin” might think of the memo, any “resignations” that might follow the memo’s release, but whatever you do don’t talk about the information in the memo.

The media’s favorite tactic is to treat Trump’s self-defense, even if it is rooted in the truth, as an ongoing scandal. It is appalling to the kangaroo court that he would “discredit” the probe into his campaign by pointing to discreditable behavior. That is a no-no. That is “politics.” That is “selfish,” placing his own “personal interests” above the “interests of the country.” The media’s view is that victims of political rape, provided they are Republicans, should sit back and enjoy it. Anything less is “not normal.”

      In his first year, Trump has purposely tried to erase everything that Obama did during his eight years in office.

      There are a couple things he hasn't tried to change. One for example is that Obama spent 8 years blaming GWB for anything and everything that went wrong during the Obama presidency. Trump continues that meme. It is never anything that Trump does. It is always someone else's fault. Usually, if it is not Obama being blamed it is 'Crooked Hillary'.

    Conspiracy, Chicanery, Transparency, Oh my.

    The article above is political and absurd. At the same time Trump is tweeting out that he has been 'totally vindicated' by the 'Memo", his minions in the media and the blogs try to organize a pity party for the GOP and the president. They whine about the need for transparency yet refuse to countenance opposing opinions that dispute the 'facts' and opinions they present. They assert a vast politically inspired conspiracy within the FBI/DOJ but offer no supporting documentation. In this memo, they charge political bias, one involving two administrations, both parties, all levels of both organizations including multiple high level appointments by Trump himself, in a document produced by a man who has been ridiculed in the past for political chicanery, a man who admitted he hadn't actually read the original information that formed the basis for the memo, a man who says his only aim is transparency but who tried to achieve that by writing a political document in secret and then trying his best to limit its distribution (except for the typical politically advantageous leaks) before it could be released to the public, actions a cynical person might charge was politically motivated.

    When the Dem's memo is released it may provide some additional information; however, pro forma is set and we can expect the Dems memo will follow the same imbalanced (some might charge unbalanced), one-side dialogue approach as the GOP memo. At that point, we will be left with dueling memos with both sides of the political divide advocating for the one that best fits their politics. One side offers up conspiracy theories of major law enforcement organizations that are riddled with a cabal of Deep State operatives aligned against the president. The other side claiming a party being ruled by a man who lives by the principle of 'divine right of kings' and demands loyalty to himself trumps loyalty to the country is trying to stop a legitimate investigation that could involves him.

    And the circus continues. The problem is this pissing contest is more important than others. One, because it involves the FISA process which involves all of us. And two, because the two preeminent law enforcement agencies in the US, rightly or wrongly, have come under attack in an effort discredit an ongoing special counsel investigation.

    I would argue that both of these issues are more important than a failed effort by the Russians to influence US elections. Perhaps, my views would change had Russia actually accomplished their goals but by all accounts they haven't.

    Given that opinion and the anticipated cat-fights we can expect in the dueling memos saga, I would argue that all the information involved should be declassified (even if redacted) and released to the public. Given that this is a single case, we have been hearing details about the FISA process for years especially after Snowden, we have been hearing about Carter page since 2013, most people have a general knowledge of the process to get any warrant, the arguments on concern for revealing sources and methods falls short of the need for true transparency.

    Trump has the ability to declassify anything and everything. He should do it in this case.

    6. Rep. Ron DeSantis, Florida Republican, said Mr. Rosenstein will likely have to appear before Congress to explain his actions regarding the FISA warrants for members of the Trump campaign.

      “I think Rosenstein is going to have to come to the Congress and explain his roll in extending it,” the lawmaker said on Fox News. “I mean, did he go back and review it and was satisfied, or he just extended? And is he going to be able to justify this as a proper use of FISA?”

      Asked by reporters Friday whether he has confidence in Mr. Rosenstein, the president said dismissively, “You figure that one out.”

      Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended his second-ranking official, saying

      Mr. Rosenstein represents “the kind of quality and leadership that we want in the department.”

    You want obvious, Doug? Let's talk obvious.

    Devin Nunes, likely in conjunction with White House staff, constructed a one-sided set of political GOP talking points which others have described as 'incomplete, inaccurate, and misleading' about a FISA warrant request on a former Trump team member, and has further implied that this single incident if true as stated points to organization wide corruption in both the FBI and DOJ and discredits any attempt by the Mueller investigation to investigate any Trump team collusion or obstruction of justice violations associated with Russian interference in the 2016 US elections.

    It is obvious the main purpose of the Nunes memo is to try to discredit the Mueller investigation.

    Despite all the denials by Paul Ryan, White house staff, a number of GOP legislators, and others that is exactly what it's about. How do we know that? Devin Nunes came out today and said so. This follows Trump's tweet today (and Trump Jr.'s comment yesterday) saying the exact same thing.

    A political hack has constructed a political hack job and released it in a thoroughly political way in order to provide political cover for another political hack.

    Yet, Doug, accepts all this and condemns everyone else who might disagree with this process.

  15. Watergate under the bridge: how the New York Times missed the scoop of the century
    Ed PilkingtonFirst published on Mon 25 May 2009 08.55 EDT

    Thirty-seven years on, paper owns up to fumbling the story that brought down Richard Nixon

    For 37 years Robert Smith and Robert Phelps watched from the sidelines as Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein were showered with Pulitzers, book and movie contracts and fame for their investigative reporting of the Watergate scandal. All the while they knew that the story – and the riches – could have been theirs.

    Now, in an admission that must rank among the most excruciating in ­newspaper history, the former New York Times journalists have revealed that they knew about the cover-up before their Washington Post rivals. But they dropped the ball.

    As early as August 1972, two months after the break-in at the ­Watergate hotel, they were informed of key details of the scandal. They were close to cracking a story that forced the resignation of Richard Nixon, defined a generation and went down in journalistic legend.

    The tip-off was made to Smith, a Times reporter, at a private lunch with Patrick Gray, acting director of the FBI. Gray told Smith that the former ­attorney general, John Mitchell, then running Nixon's re-election campaign, was involved in a cover-up of the break-in and attempted bugging at the offices of the Democratic National Committee.

    Smith asked Gray how far up it went – all the way to the president? "He sat there and looked at me and he didn't answer. His answer was in the look," Smith said. Smith rushed back to the Times's Washington office, and accosted Phelps, an editor at the bureau. Phelps took notes and recorded the ­conversation. But nothing happened.

    There is no explanation for the fumble as Phelps, now 89, cannot remember what happened. But two factors stand out: the day Smith received the news of the cover-up was his last on the paper; and Phelps was shortly to take a break from the office for a month in Alaska.

    The paper's inaction allowed ­Woodward and Bernstein, to steal the show. The Post's source, Deep Throat, was identified in 2005 as Mark Felt – Gray's number two at the FBI.

  16. NY TIMES ON HILLARY CLINTON - 1996

    A Blizzard of Lies

    Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady -- a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation -- is a congenital liar.

    Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.

    1. Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that as the Governor's wife she profited corruptly, her account being run by a lawyer for state poultry interests through a disreputable broker.

    She lied for good reason: To admit otherwise would be to confess taking, and paying taxes on, what some think amounted to a $100,000 bribe.

    2. The abuse of Presidential power known as Travelgate elicited another series of lies. She induced a White House lawyer to assert flatly to investigators that Mrs. Clinton did not order the firing of White House travel aides, who were then harassed by the F.B.I. and Justice Department to justify patronage replacement by Mrs. Clinton's cronies.

    Now we know, from a memo long concealed from investigators, that there would be "hell to pay" if the furious First Lady's desires were scorned. The career of the lawyer who transmitted Hillary's lie to authorities is now in jeopardy. Again, she lied with good reason: to avoid being identified as a vindictive political power player who used the F.B.I. to ruin the lives of people standing in the way of juicy patronage.

    3. In the aftermath of the apparent suicide of her former partner and closest confidant, White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, she ordered the overturn of an agreement to allow the Justice Department to examine the files in the dead man's office. Her closest friends and aides, under oath, have been blatantly disremembering this likely obstruction of justice, and may have to pay for supporting Hillary's lie with jail terms.

    Again, the lying was not irrational. Investigators believe that damning records from the Rose Law Firm, wrongfully kept in Vincent Foster's White House office, were spirited out in the dead of night and hidden from the law for two years -- in Hillary's closet, in Web Hubbell's basement before his felony conviction, in the President's secretary's personal files -- before some were forced out last week.

    Why the White House concealment? For good reason: The records show Hillary Clinton was lying when she denied actively representing a criminal enterprise known as the Madison S.& L., and indicate she may have conspired with Web Hubbell's father-in-law to make a sham land deal that cost taxpayers $3 million.

    Why the belated release of some of the incriminating evidence? Not because it mysteriously turned up in offices previously searched. Certainly not because Hillary Clinton and her new hang-tough White House counsel want to respond fully to lawful subpoenas.

    One reason for the Friday-night dribble of evidence from the White House is the discovery by the F.B.I. of copies of some of those records elsewhere. When Clinton witnesses are asked about specific items in "lost" records -- which investigators have -- the White House "finds" its copy and releases it. By concealing the Madison billing records two days beyond the statute of limitations, Hillary evaded a civil suit by bamboozled bank regulators.

    1. STILL INFECTED AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

      {..}

      Another reason for recent revelations is the imminent turning of former aides and partners of Hillary against her; they were willing to cover her lying when it advanced their careers, but are inclined to listen to their own lawyers when faced with perjury indictments.

      Therefore, ask not "Why didn't she just come clean at the beginning?" She had good reasons to lie; she is in the longtime habit of lying; and she has never been called to account for lying herself or in suborning lying in her aides and friends.

      No wonder the President is fearful of holding a prime-time press conference. Having been separately deposed by the independent counsel at least twice, the President and First Lady would be well advised to retain separate defense counsel.

    Gowdy said in an interview with CBS News that will air Sunday on “Face the Nation.”

    Gowdy said, according to a partial transcript provided by the network.
