Banned By The Hiltons

First, the Free Republic, then Reddit, and now the Hiltons!

On a recent trip to St. Louis, my friend and regular commenter, Grunt of Monte Cristo, decided he check in and get the latest here at  DMF. Much to his surprise.....Access Denied! He writes:
"The attached file Diog2orig.jpg is an actual cell phone photo I took last night of a walk-up computer screen at a hotel in St. Louis denying access to Diogenes Middle Finger.  Can you believe it?  Your site is too smutty for the Hilton Hotels."
I guess we here at DMF haven't reached the high level of party girl skankiness of some members of the Hilton family, and don't yet meet their criteria for high standards to display for their hotel guest. Our new Badge of Honor!

How to Get Obama to Risk a “Megyn Kelly Moment”

Image via The Peoples Cube

"For those unfamiliar with the phenomenon, a Megyn moment, as I have taken to calling it, is when you, a Fox guest — maybe a regular guest or even an official contributor — are pursuing a line of argument that seems perfectly congruent with the Fox worldview, only to have Kelly seize on some part of it and call it out as nonsense, maybe even turn it back on you. 
You don’t always know when, how or even if the Megyn moment will happen; Kelly’s political sensibility and choice of subjects are generally in keeping with that of the network at large. But you always have to be ready for it, no matter who you are." - Tim Graham, NewsBusters 

Bill Nye Blames East Coast Blizzard On Climate Change…

The Science Guy

Everyones favorite caricature of their slightly mentally disturbed Middle School General Science Teacher, Bill Nye the Science Guy, appeared on the MSNBC to perpetuate the Globe Warning hoax to the low info folks.... 

"And everybody, I just want to introduce the idea that this storm is connected to climate change. I want to introduce that idea. I know there will be certain viewers who will become unglued, they’re throwing things at their television set and so on. But is the economic effect of storms like this is huge. You cancel half of the flights out of the world’s — one of the world’s busiest airports, certainly the eastern seaboard is a very busy area economically for airplane travel and so when you start having big storms and you don’t have the infrastructure to deal with it, you are costing your society a lot of money and we’re in the developed world where we can handle this stuff. So I just want to introduce the idea that the strong winds that we had in southern California, the very strong winds that will be associated with this storm in the next couple of days, these could be connected to climate change. Now proving any one storm is connected, specially cold-weather events is difficult. But I just want to present that......” 

Emperor of U.S. Throws Nuclear Technology at India to Slap Russia in the Face

The US and India have announced a breakthrough on a pact that will allow American
companies to supply India with civilian nuclear technology.

"It came on the first day of President Barack Obama's visit to India.  The nuclear deal had been held up for six years amid concerns over the liability for any nuclear accident.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the nations were embarking on a "new journey" of co-operation, with stronger defence and trade ties.  Mr Obama said that the nations had declared a new friendship.
Security is intense in Delhi, with Mr Obama to be the guest of honour at Monday's Republic Day celebrations. Thousands of security personnel have been deployed in Delhi. 
Now, a large insurance pool will be set up, without the need for any further legislation.
US ambassador Richard Verma said: "It opens the door for US and other companies to come forward and actually help India towards developing nuclear power and support its non carbon-based energy production....." Read More
Great Idea Barry.  More nuclear power in a country bordered by a mortal enemy and a safe haven for radical Islamic terrorist. What could go wrong..... 

Is it just me......

....or is the First lady's Butt growing exponentially with the her
husband's ballooning national debt?

Carly Fiorina Skewers Hillary Clinton

“Like Hillary Clinton, I too have travelled hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe. But unlike her, I have actually accomplished something.   Mrs. Clinton, flying is an activity not an accomplishment.”
"And unlike Hillary Clinton I know what difference it makes that our ambassador to Libya and three other brave Americans were killed in a deliberate terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 and that the response of our nation must be more forceful that the arrest of a single individual a year later.”

Arizona State to Teach 'problem of whiteness' Course

The Examiner
An English class now being offered at the Arizona State University gives students the opportunity to learn about the alleged “problem of whiteness” in America, Campus Reform reported Thursday. The course being offered for the Spring 2015 semester is called “Studies in American Literature/Culture: U.S. Race Theory & the Problem of Whiteness.” The course, Campus Reform said, citing Pundit Press, is being taught by Lee Bebout, a white assistant professor of English at the college.
Students enrolling in the course will read "The Possessive Investment in Whiteness," "Critical Race Theory," "Everyday Language of White Racism," "Playing in the Dark," and "The Alchemy of Race and Rights." So far, 18 students are enrolled at the college's Tempe campus, Lauren Clark said.
It's really no surprise that a public college would offer such a course. As we reported last year, a white privilege conference recommended courses and methods designed to immerse students in the subject, while at the same time indoctrinating them in Marxist ideology and brainwashing them to believe that America is an inherently evil nation. Speakers at the conference also expressed a desire to either reduce or eliminate the influence of Christianity in America.
"I've learned I'm a 'vulgar Marxist,'" said Kankakee Community College adjunct professor Stephanie Baran, "because I desire to see the entire dismantling of the system versus the other, softer, kinder, brutal Marxists." Over 2,400 teachers and students attended the conference last year and were told, among other things, that the white race was created in 1681. Another speaker encouraged attendees to consider ways to stifle free speech. Christianity was also attacked as a tool that promotes racism......Read More
And we wonder why kids are coming out of college as race-baiting fools who lack basic knowledge or life skills. American history? Not important.

Nancy Pelosi Covered Up Dems Role In Morgage Crisis

While Democrats have and will continue to deny any responsibility in the Housing bubble burst, a whistle blower has come forward and has blown the cover of their involvement.

The relaxing of mortgage regulations during the Clinton administration's footsy playing under the table with Wall Street Bankers and the dems gamble by insistence there was no problem even after the Bush administration expressed concerns to the House and Senate Banking Committees, brought the fiasco that help plunge America into the worst session in decades. Democrats in congress took on the arduous task of investigating for the American taxpayer. 

"We've long suspected the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission wasn't honest in examining events before the meltdown. But an ex-commissioner says the probe was actually a full-blown political cover-up.
In a just-released book, former FCIC member Peter Wallison says that a Democratic Congress worked with the commission's Democratic chairman to whitewash the government's central role in the mortgage debacle. The conspiracy helped protect some of the Democrats' biggest stars from scrutiny and accountability while helping justify the biggest government takeover of the financial sector since the New Deal.
Wallison's sobering, trenchantly written "Hidden in Plain Sight: What Really Caused the World's Worst Financial Crisis and Why It Could Happen Again" reveals that the Democrat-led panel buried key data proving that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and other federal agencies pushed the housing market over the subprime cliff.  
In 2009, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed her California pal Phil Angelides, a long-time Democrat operative, to lead the commission. 
The fix seemed to be in, and Wallison's account of the inner workings of the 10-member body confirms it. Here's what took place during the FCIC's 18-month, $10 million probe:  READ MORE 
The media's refusal to throughly investigate, and pinning of the resulting fall of the economy on the Bush administration, allowed Rep. Barney Frank and Sen. Christopher Dodd to leave office unscathed under the cover of the still democrat controlled congress and the Obama Administration. 

Frank and Dodd should be in jail for what these two men are responsible for in the name of politics.

Educational Crash Course # 744

Another Installment of Diogenes'
Public Service Educational Series:

"Raising an intelligent and well adjusted husband."
with First Lady Michelle Obama

They Still Don't Get It.

"It was a bit dissonant last night to walk out of the theater after watching 'Selma'--a film about a man of peace who was murdered by a sniper--and stumble upon long line of people waiting to watch a film glorifying an American sniper who murdered hundreds." - From the Sewer Known as Tumblr
"I saw American Sniper last night, and hated it slightly less than I expected to. Like most Clint Eastwood movies – and I like Clint Eastwood movies for the most part – it's a simple, well-lit little fairy tale with the nutritional value of a fortune cookie that serves up a neatly-arranged helping of cheers and tears for target audiences, and panics at the thought of embracing more than one or two ideas at any time." - Rolling Stone Magazine
But then again, these are the same people who voted for a President who graciously interrupts his golf outings to be interviewed by a lunatic that looks like she just blew the Jolly Green Giant and eats Froot Loops out of a bathtub full of milk.......

The Crown Jewel of Obama’s Middle East Policy Descends Into Chaos

by Grunt of  Monte Cristo
In the wake of the total surrender of the Yemeni government to Iran-allied Houthi rebels, the U.S. State Department has had only one profoundly unhelpful message: We don’t know what we’re doing, and neither do you, so refrain from speculating about it. This message was delivered to Washington reporters by seasoned State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki as the resignation of Yemeni President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi (pictured) was unfolding and his home was being shelled.
As quoted by the New York Times:
“We’re not in a position — and I don’t think any of you are either — to assess what it means at this point in time.” 

Despite Jen’s terse instructions not to think about it, I’d wager there are many good conclusions that we can draw from the events in Yemen. One is the simple fact that this is a spectacular failure for the Obama White House and its policies in the Middle East. The other is the nature of the striking betrayal that happened in the final hours of the collapse. According to Sebastian Usher, BBC:
"The resignation of the Yemeni president and his government is likely to plunge an already unstable country into uncharted territory.
It comes just a day after a deal was announced between the president and the Houthi rebels that was meant to paper over the sharpest edges of the current crisis.
The rebels received the concessions they demanded. For their part, they were meant to withdraw from the presidential palace and from Mr Hadi’s own house, as well as releasing a presidential aide they abducted last week.
They have done none of this. Mr Hadi and his government say they cannot continue under such conditions. Yemen was already close to chaos – now it seems it has no president and no government..."
I’m not referring to the obvious betrayal of the Houthi rebels. Everyone knew they would not keep any agreements after they had gained the upper hand militarily. 
What I mean by betrayal is that Hadi’s government followed the recipe of appeasement that the U.S. State Department forced on them. Giving the rebels everything they wanted and then expecting them to back off was Obama’s strategy, and the Hadi government followed the script to perfection. Now they have paid for it with their utter destruction. 
My question is, who will hold the U.S. State Department accountable for this failure? The Yemeni government that they supported is now in no position to do so.
