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.

Young American's Dream Snuffed Out by Twice Deported Guatemalan Dreamer

NFL Colts Linebacker Allegedly Killed by Twice-Deported Illegal Alien Drunk Driver

Colts Linebacker Edwin Jackson and his driver were allegedly killed by a drunk driving, previously deported illegal alien Sunday morning near Indianapolis. The suspect fled the scene on foot after crashing into their vehicle. Indiana State Police officers arrested the reported driver later that morning.

Police arrested a man who identified himself as Alex Cabrera Gonsales, a 37-year-old Mexican national, after he allegedly crashed his black Ford F-150 into a car parked along Interstate 70 near Indianapolis, according to a statement obtained from the Indiana State Police. The driver of the car, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, and his passenger, 26-year-old Indianapolis Colts Linebacker Edwin Jackson, were both killed in the crash.

Detectives discovered the driver gave police false information about his identity. Investigators said the man’s name is actually Manuel Orrego-Savala, a citizen of Guatemala. A background investigation revealed Orrego-Savala has been deported from the United States on two previous occasions. The first deportation occurred in 2007. This was followed by a second deportation in 2009.

Police believe Monroe was a rideshare operator who picked up Jackson and was taking him home. Monroe apparently pulled his car over to the shoulder to assist Jackson who had become ill. Shortly after that, the truck driven by Orrego-Savala crashed into the back of the car.

Statements from the state police indicate that both victims were outside of their 2018 Lincoln when the crash occurred. The impact threw one of the victims into the center lane of the highway where he was later struck by another vehicle. The coroner’s office pronounced both victims dead at the scene of the crash.

Orrego-Savala reportedly fled the scene on foot but state police troopers found him a short distance away from the scene of the crash and took him into custody. Orrego-Savala had no drivers license, officials stated.

Breitbart Texas reached out to ICE officials to determine if Orrego-Savala has any additional immigration history. A response was not available by the time of this publication.

Jackson, nicknamed “Pound Cake,” recently completed his second season with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts said Jackson “loved the game of football and we’re thankful to have been a part of his journey,” in a tweet responding to the news of Jackson’s death.

  1. RECURRING NIGHTMARE:

    WASHINGTON — A bipartisan pair of senators said they would introduce a new immigration bill Monday in a fresh effort to move negotiations toward a narrow agreement that leaves out more contentious proposals sought by President Donald Trump.

    The government’s current funding expires at 12:01 a.m. Friday. While lawmakers expect to pass another short-term spending bill to keep federal agencies open, they are increasingly frustrated by the gridlock that has prevented them from striking a long-term deal on either immigration or spending levels. Immigration has become entangled in the spending negotiations ever since Trump last year ended an Obama-era program that protects young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

    Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Chris Coons, D- Del., plan to unveil a proposal that offers a path to citizenship for young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children and orders a comprehensive study to determine what border-security measures are needed. But the bill stops well short of almost all of Trump’s demands — including immediate funding for the wall along the southern border — and is likely to meet a chilly reception from conservative Republicans.

    Still, McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer last summer and has been working from Arizona since late 2017, retains powerful sway among his GOP colleagues. His bill with Coons could also benefit from good timing, as the March 5 deadline draws closer and lawmakers grapple with the political consequences of failing to reach any agreement.

  2. INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Immigration advocates are pushing for Indianapolis to become a “sanctuary city.”

    These advocates say families are being torn apart because of deportations under the Trump administration. That’s why they came to the sheriff’s office looking for answers.

    About 20 people went to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office looking to speak with him.

    They say they don’t want local resources to be used to deport people.

    This is after President Trump’s immigration executive orders and ramped up deportations.

    Sheriff John Layton originally said that he wouldn’t meet with this group but eventually met with them.

    “I am standing with immigrants, Muslims. These are people who are at risk of either being deported or not allowing into this country,” said Joanne Lingle, who went to meet with the sheriff.

    “Bullying never gets anybody anywhere,” said Sheriff Layton after the group stormed into the building. “Shortcutting doesn’t get laws made. And what I’m trying to tell you is you’re at the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. I don’t make laws, I enforce laws. You need to go where they make laws.”

    The sheriff also met with the group in a closed-door meeting.

  4. Video - What First Ammendment?

    Republican representative Jeanne Ives, the social and fiscal conservative who’s running to unseat Illinois governor Bruce Rauner, put out a campaign ad so offensive that the chair of the state’s Republican Party is demanding that she take it down and apologize, The Hill reports.

    Titled “Thank You, Bruce Rauner,” the mocking campaign video manages to condense anti-woman, anti-trans, anti-immigrant, and racist sentiments into 60 seconds by referencing progressive bills that Rauner has signed.

    “Thank you for making all Illinois families pay for my abortions,” says a woman wearing a pink pussy hat, a criticism of Rauner’s signature on House Bill 40, which allows for abortions to be publicly funded through state-employee insurance and Medicaid.

    An actor portraying a transgender woman mocks House Bill 1785, which makes it easier for transgender people to change the gender listed on their birth certificates: “Thank you for signing legislation that lets me use the girls’ bathroom.” (To clarify: HB1785 is not a bathroom bill.)

    The video also takes jabs at Rauner’s signature on a Sanctuary State law and a bipartisan school-funding bill, making it a truly remarkable bigoted ad. While Democrats and fellow Illinoisans have expressed disapproval as expected, the campaign ad was even too much for some GOP leaders...

  5. Pennsylvania will soon have new congressional maps.

    The United States Supreme Court has decided not to block a state court ruling requiring Pennsylvania's legislature to immediately redraw its legislative boundaries.

    Pennsylvania's state Supreme Court had previously ruled those 18 Congressional districts – drawn by a Republican legislature and signed by a Republican governor in 2011 – were overly partisan and violated the state's constitution.

    The state's Democratic governor and Republican-controlled legislature now have until February 15 to draw new lines.

  7. DOW bow wow -

    In Memory of W. B. Yeats
    W. H. Auden, 1907 - 1973

    I

    He disappeared in the dead of winter:
    The brooks were frozen, the airports almost deserted,
    And snow disfigured the public statues;
    The mercury sank in the mouth of the dying day.
    What instruments we have agree
    The day of his death was a dark cold day.

    Far from his illness
    The wolves ran on through the evergreen forests,
    The peasant river was untempted by the fashionable quays;
    By mourning tongues
    The death of the poet was kept from his poems.

    But for him it was his last afternoon as himself,
    An afternoon of nurses and rumours;
    The provinces of his body revolted,
    The squares of his mind were empty,
    Silence invaded the suburbs,
    The current of his feeling failed; he became his admirers.

    Now he is scattered among a hundred cities
    And wholly given over to unfamiliar affections,
    To find his happiness in another kind of wood
    And be punished under a foreign code of conscience.
    The words of a dead man
    Are modified in the guts of the living.

    But in the importance and noise of to-morrow
    When the brokers are roaring like beasts on the floor of the
    Bourse,
    And the poor have the sufferings to which they are fairly
    accustomed,
    And each in the cell of himself is almost convinced of his
    freedom,
    A few thousand will think of this day
    As one thinks of a day when one did something slightly unusual.

    What instruments we have agree
    The day of his death was a dark cold day.




    II

    You were silly like us; your gift survived it all:
    The parish of rich women, physical decay,
    Yourself. Mad Ireland hurt you into poetry.
    Now Ireland has her madness and her weather still,
    For poetry makes nothing happen: it survives
    In the valley of its making where executives
    Would never want to tamper, flows on south
    From ranches of isolation and the busy griefs,
    Raw towns that we believe and die in; it survives,
    A way of happening, a mouth.


    III

    Earth, receive an honoured guest:
    William Yeats is laid to rest.
    Let the Irish vessel lie
    Emptied of its poetry.

    In the nightmare of the dark
    All the dogs of Europe bark,
    And the living nations wait,
    Each sequestered in its hate;

    Intellectual disgrace
    Stares from every human face,
    And the seas of pity lie
    Locked and frozen in each eye.

    Follow, poet, follow right
    To the bottom of the night,
    With your unconstraining voice
    Still persuade us to rejoice;

    With the farming of a verse
    Make a vineyard of the curse,
    Sing of human unsuccess
    In a rapture of distress;

    In the deserts of the heart
    Let the healing fountain start,
    In the prison of his days
    Teach the free man how to praise.

  9. GOP Rep. Ratcliffe Calls on James Comey to Come Back Before Congress and Testify after He is Caught Lying Under Oath (VIDEO)

    On September 28th, 2016, Texas GOP Rep. John Ratcliffe asked former FBI Director James Comey the following (simple) question:

    “Director, did you make the decision not to recommend criminal charges relating to classified information before or after Hillary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI on July 2nd?”

    Comey’s answer under oath:

    “After”

    Here’s the video:

    ===

    It is now clear that this was a lie and Comey knew for months that Democrat Hillary Clinton would face no charges for her handling of classified information.

    On Sunday Rep. John Ratcliffe weighed in on former FBI Director James Comey’s lies under oath to Congress.

    Rep. Ratcliffe: I want to give him the opportunity to come back and clarify his testimony when he said very clearly, what I know now, was that he had written an exoneration memo before he had given that testimony saying he wasn’t going to charge her.

    I’ve seen text messages and I’ve seen emails and I have received testimony from other witnesses that are all inconsistent with that testimony he gave to me under oath. So he needs to have the opportunity to come back and either clarify his testimony or insert his own Fifth Amendment right.

  10. Reminder -

    Political Predictions for the 2020 Presidential Race

    1. Trump's RCP average polls for presidential favorability, job approval,
    and direction of country will continue to be locked in the 30% - 40%
    range.

    2. Fearing his chances of winning, Trump will opt out of running for a
    second term in 2020.

    3. Trump will cite his reasons for not running as having already become
    the most successful and beloved president in US history, his need to get
    back to managing his vast commercial empire, the fact that he has already
    solved most of the US' major problems to the extent that all that is left
    is the need for some minor clean up that any moron could accomplish
    without him, and that he really wants to devote more time to his family.

    4. If beyond all reason Trump decides to run for reelection, he will lose.
    Soundly lose.

    "The FISA request for a warrant to spy on Page came a month after Page had already left the Trump campaign. The only way the Feds could spy on ALL OF TRUMP CAMPAIGN is if ALL OF TRUMP CAMPAIGN got on a conference call with Page while the Feds were listening in. But we know that wouldn't happen. Trump says he never met Page and doesn't know anything about him. His staff says Page was a low level advisor who was never actually officially on the Trump team. Who to believe?"

    ===

    Good to know you're aware of calendars, phone taps, and CONFERENCE CALLS!

    Have you heard about email and email servers?

    Only way my ass.

    ...they just got the warrant multiple times because they were obsessed with Carter Page! ...not.

    You do get credit for an accurate retelling of the WaPo argument, however.

    ...minus two points though, 'cause you left out the Four Pinocchios.

    In other words, the surveillance began long after Page had supposedly left the campaign. Trump denies he ever met or spoke to Page. So it’s hard to see how a court order on a former campaign adviser — less than three weeks before the election — would constitute spying on the campaign.

      The fact is since RCP/RCW often uses the WaPo as source for many of the articles on their blog I am usually beyond my 10 free articles within the 1st day or 2 of the month. I haven't read anything from the Post for the past few days.

      As the result of your abnormal fixation on the MSM (read WaPo, NYT, and CNN in Doug-speak) you fail to realize that the Nunes Memo has been the biggest story dominating the news since it came out, even surpassing the Michigan State/Nassar scandal. You can't open your computer or turn on your TV without having it shoved in your face. And though it might surprise you, there are other news sources out there.

      If one is flying along at 25,000-30,000 feet and drops a couple thousand you're still way up in the air.

      Some people call it a 'correction'.

      If it continues then begin to worry in a few days.

      Personally, I think Quirk is just pulling the strings behind the stage for the kicks he gets out of it.

      Look at the bright side, Trump probably won't be tweeting about the market for a while. Well, unless he can figure out some way to blame the dip on Adam Schiff.

    Carter Page emails?

    Who on Trump's team would be communicating with Carter Page a month after he departed? He wasn't even officially on the team. Trump never heard of the guy, never met him. It's rumored that all he got when he left was a pen with 'Trump Tower' printed on it and a picture of Trump (wallet sized).

    What's wrong with you?

      There was some talk about the Trump Tower server but that was tied to the Russians on the 63rd (?) floor and that strange activity by that Russian bank or something.

      But When I ran a search on 'FBI wiretaps Trump server' all I could come up with was this.

      The original Slate story about an email server allegedly inside Trump Tower and communicating with a Russian bank, first published in October, is back in the headlines this week after Donald Trump made the surreal claim that President Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower just before election day.

      Obama could not have done any such thing, but as we’ve reported, there is evidence that a federal judge granted a FISA warrant in October in relation to that server. So what does Carter Page have to do with this?

      The Trump Tower Russian email server in question saw spikes in traffic whenever Carter Page traveled to Russia, according to a scientist who has analyzed the data pattern. The server was then permanently shut down on September 23rd. Three days later, Carter Page announced he had left the Donald Trump campaign, claiming that the mounting questions about his Russian connections had become a distraction.

  21. He was arrested by ICE in San Francisco in October 2006 for being in the country illegally. He was removed to Guatemala for the first time on Jan. 17, 2007.

    He was again arrested by ICE in San Francisco on March 26, 2009, for the same reason and was removed to Guatemala for a second time on May 12, 2009.

    It is unknown when he returned to the U.S. again and at what point he arrived in Indiana.

    Here is some simple math 25 - 8 = 17

    The 1987 fall was 25% following 11% the previous week. Your obvious glee that the market fell at all is hardly surprising but at least get your facts straight. Losing 25 cents on the dollar is hardly the same as losing 8 cents on the dollar.

    The read of the day: Sharyl Attkisson on the FBI's 'strict' guidelines for FISA warrants

    By Thomas Lifson

    It turns out that the FISA court warrant applications for secret surveillance of Carter Page, and through him, the Trump campaign, may have violated the elaborate internal FBI procedural safeguards put in place by – hold your breath! – Robert Mueller. I will respect her work by limiting the excerpts here and sending you to her column in The Hill laying out her journalistic digging. It is the essential read of the day.

    There are strict rules requiring that each and every fact presented in an FBI request to electronically spy on a U.S. citizen be extreme-vetted for accuracy — and presented to the court only if verified. (snip)


    Presentation of any such unverified material to the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to justify a wiretap would appear to violate crucial procedural rules, called “Woods Procedures,” designed to protect U.S. citizens.

    Yet Comey allegedly signed three of the FISA applications on behalf of the FBI. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe reportedly signed one and former Attorney General Sally Yates, then-Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein each reportedly signed one or more. (snip)

    Woods Procedures were named for Michael Woods, the FBI official who drafted the rules as head of the Office of General Counsel’s National Security Law Unit. They were instituted in April 2001 to “ensure accuracy with regard to … the facts supporting probable cause” after recurring instances, presumably inadvertent, in which the FBI had presented inaccurate information to the FISA court.

    Best all, the Woods Procedures were implemented by none other than Robert Mueller, as head of the FBI.

    This would seem to indicate that Mueller should be intimately aware of the corrupt origins of his own investigation, the “fruit of the poisonous tree,” as the law calls it.

    Sharyl Attkisson is a national treasure!

  26. Leave Right Now or Arm Yourself to the Teeth: Life in Caracas
    A twist of the radio dial reveals a grim reality.


    By Fabiola Zerpa
    February 5, 2018, 2:00 AM PST

    Editor’s Note: There are few places as chaotic or dangerous as Venezuela. “Life in Caracas” is a new series of short stories that seeks to capture the surreal quality of living in a land in total disarray.

    As a child growing up in Venezuela, I loved listening to the radio. I found the voices, and the tales they spun, hypnotizing.


    Now, it’s torture. Especially the ads. At times, it seems as if they’re all instructing me to flee the country. Immediately. In one of them, a woman offers to find a home for me to buy in Florida. In another, I’m told that, for a small fee, U.S. visas for the whole family can be mine. Then there’s the one with the lawyers promising to help me land a job abroad. Oh wait, here’s a guy who isn’t trying to ship me overseas: He’s telling me I should turn my Toyota Corolla into an armored vehicle.


    Fabiola Zerpa drives through her neighborhood in Caracas.Photographer: Fabiola Ferrero/Bloomberg
    When it’s not the ads, it’s President Nicolas Maduro taking over the airwaves for a Castro-esque, rambling speech that can drag on for hours. Or it’s the “Homeland News Program,” which blares state propaganda across all airwaves twice a day.

    There’s little left now of the rich radio scene of yesteryear. Over the last decade, scores of programs—and entire stations—have been driven off the air by censorship, harassment and the purchase of media outlets by groups close to the socialist government. Those that didn’t come under attack were done in by the economic collapse. My favorite shows featuring comedy and political parody disappeared. Ditto for the one on film and theater. The jazz station I loved was nationalized.

    What’s emerged in their place is all so alien to me. The endless shows praising Maduro’s latest edicts, the 1970s music paying tribute to socialism and, of course, those damn ads.

    Blended together into a single message, they’re telling me that life is either to be lived elsewhere or it’s to be lived in fear. The voice of the armored-car guy keeps popping into my head. “Since medieval times, armor and shields have played an important role in history’s difficult moments,” he tells me. “How much is your security worth?”
