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.

Iraq Veterans for Congress

Kieran Lalor, USMC Veteran and founder of Iraq Vets for Congress

Thank you for stopping by the website of Iraq Veterans for Congress.

Since IVC was formed early this year, we have seen broad and enthusiastic support from across America for the strong group of candidates who are part of IVC, and we are grateful that our message is being heard. More importantly, we are pleased that America’s voice is being heard.

Whether Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine, we all shared a common goal in Iraq: victory. As Republican candidates for Congress we share a vision for America's future, her security, and that of future generations. We are unified in our commitment to relieve the Democrats of their command of Congress.

Voters want to restore leadership and honor back to Washington. Who better to accomplish that mission than our generation of warriors?

All veterans whose service to the United States brought them first to Iraq and now to a run for the House as pro-victory Republicans are welcome to become part of Iraq Veterans For Congress.

United we are capable of sending to Congress a squad-size element of Iraq vets to keep us on offense in the War on Terror, counter calls for defeat, and demand America's veterans receive the benefits they have earned.

In short, unification of all Republican Iraq Veterans will be a powerful force multiplier. By joining forces we will generate crucial nationwide grassroots support while sharing ideas and strategies.

IVC is more than a group of Republican candidates who served in Iraq, and we are here for something other than our respective Congressional races. We want to be a voice for thousands of U.S. military veterans, their families, and hardworking patriotic Americans who are tired of seeing veterans mistreated and their mission slandered.

When I brought the members of IVC together, I wanted America to have a reliable, unified voice from twelve candidates who are uniquely positioned to offer a knowledgeable, credible rebuttal to the Democrats, the mainstream media, and the constant message of defeatism and mistreatment of our troops. That’s what we’re doing every day, and we are counting on and appreciate your support.

Together, the members of IVC will a reliable voice for veterans, their families, and their mission, not only in our campaign to re-take Congress for Republicans, but for all Americans who have heard enough from the Democrats and their leadership in Congress.


  1. Nick Morgan, a U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq, also was reluctant to use the term war crimes, but he said he saw things and participated in events he viewed as morally wrong on the part of the U.S. military.

    "A sergeant first class and an interpreter sat down an entire neighborhood and addressed them, and meanwhile they asked me, in a bulldozer, to bulldoze this house directly behind them," Morgan said, adding, "and basically take my time and draw it out slowly, make it dramatic, you know, to make a point."

    "Basically, in more words, they said: Anyone out there who wants to contribute to terrorism or the insurgency, this is going to be your fate as well. Do I know whether insurgents lived in the house? I have no idea.

    Brutal Reality of Iraq

  2. Hope they are as articulate as the Iraq Vets for Freedom that were on Hewitt recently.
    Be nice if one could support the other, don't know yet if that's the case.
    The House has got a whole lot of vacancies, vets our best bets.

  3. Before the taping, Obama circulated among the celebrants at the bar, shaking hands and getting his picture taken — in a pale blue tie.

    Asked why he wasn't wearing anything green, Obama said, "This is embarrassing." He said since his hometown of Chicago held a big St. Patrick's Day celebration two days ago, "I sort of lost track" of the actual date.

    But he said he would rectify the oversight before speaking later to a St. Patrick's Day dinner sponsored by the Irish Women's Society by wearing a green necktie. "I confiscated one from one of my staffers," he said.

    Forgetting St. Patty

  4. I hope we do get some good candidates out of that group.
