Let’s Review 10: Matt Laur Memorial Edition

“Get it while it lasts.” — Matt Laur

Laur’s office was in a secluded space, and he had a button under his desk that allowed him to lock his door from the inside without getting up. This afforded him the assurance of privacy. It allowed him to welcome female employees and initiate inappropriate contact while knowing nobody could walk in on him, according to two women who were sexually harassed by Lauer. – – Variety

Roy Moore and the Fire This Time    The media, in the form of the Baby Boomers who have reached its highest echelons and have controlled it for the past quarter century, sold its soul to the Democrat party — first to George McGovern, then (briefly) to Jimmy Carter, and finally and fatally to Bill (but not Hillary) Clinton and Barack Obama. Whereas old-school reporters and editors abjured involvement in politics, they embraced it. Whereas once a reporter left to become a public-relations flack or, worse, to work for a politician, he was finished as a journalist, the Boomers celebrated such experience as a resume builder. In short order, a revolving door appeared, connecting the newsrooms of Time, Newsweek, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the television networks to the corridors of political power.

Say ‘No’ to the Driverless Car—for Civilization’s Sake Be also prepared for restrictions on where and when you can be chauffeured around in robot-propelled comfort; which kinds of gasoline you may purchase, and when; and with whom you may someday be forced to share your vehicle as the cars are pre-programmed at the factory to respond to commands from elsewhere, including checking IDs. We used to want God to be our co-pilot; instead, we’re going to get Google.

The world that birthed the American Empire is long gone. China is now taking up her historic role as the hegemonic power of Asia. Europe is fully recovered, in the material sense, from the 20th century. It is time for Europe to recover culturally and that can only happen when the Yankee Empire recedes. Whether or not the European people have the will to defend themselves from the barbarian hordes to their south, that’s not something that can be decided for them. Europe must live or die on its own. The End Of The Yankee Imperium

He Fights – Donald Trump is America’€™s first wartime president in the Culture War. During wartime, things like “dignity”€ and “collegiality” simply aren’€™t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors.  Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.  Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.   Lincoln rightly recognized that, “€œI cannot spare this man.  He fights.”

Bear Spray Saves . . . Bears: Some people claim the bear spray worked exactly as intended. It saved the life of the bear. Even though the hunter (and earlier the woman) were seriously injured, requiring hospitalization, they survived, and so did the bear.

Cancel the Oscars, Bring On the Harveys –    Funny, but I’ve yet to feel guilty about being white and having had an education, and that’s because I skipped the latter and only thought of girls and sports, and in that order. I also do not feel, nor have I ever felt, guilty for having inherited wealth such as houses, furniture, pictures, and moola in a Swiss bank. And there’s nothing you can do about it, assfaces. Airbrushing the past is a lefty trick that cannot tolerate truth. The more they try to hide the past, the clearer it becomes. At least to those of us who don’t fall for PC bullshit.

    Never understood why anyone would care in the least what Lauer, or any of the other media chuckle-heads, thought about anything. I did wonder who was yanking him along and why. That said, it is scrumptious watching the Left eviscerate itself. As for the “purity purge”: I fail to see the appeal in watching an industry defined by a bunch of domineering, vindictive females and their harem of cuckolded, omega males. Once it fails, as it most certainly will, it will just be another manifestation of evil consuming itself. What a difference a year makes.

    Grant had already failed as a peacetime officer. He was a civilian going nowhere in the years leading up to the Civil War. Grant was not merely an outstanding wartime officer, he was a wartime-only officer.
    Lee, however, was awesome in everything military, acknowledged by 1861 to be the finest officer in the US Army, which is why Lincoln offered him command of the whole Army. Lee turned it down, of course, and became Grant’s principal tutor, the hard way.

    Mr. Lauer was part of the news media/entertainment industry that we’ve seen since in this country since the ’70s. I think all of these dominoes falling at the same time is the undertow effect of the swamp being drained. Let’s hope it lasts.

    Grant was forced out of the army in 1854, I think, and for drinking. He was not successful as a civilian. But his rise during the war was amazing. He attributed some of his success to the fact that he knew all of the Confederate generals personally, and he was able to figure out what they would do, and he could counter that. Longstreet had been his best man! As for drinking during the war, he did, some, but never when it mattered.

    He turned out to be a pretty good president. Afterwards, he was lousy in business, again. But just before he died, he was one of the finest writers of the day. Mark Twain, who published him, said he would turn out 10,000 words some days, and it needed almost no editing.

    These jerx with balls for brains are having their Dickies pants pulled down around their ankles.
    It’s long overdue. Will complaints against women executives be next? Do they wear Dickies?
    Is fake news real but untrue but not false by accident?

    If the defrocked men of scandal were conservatives (Roy Moore, if he did as accused, was at the time a democrat!), then every swinging Richard on the right side of the aisle on both coasts would be set before a media firing squad, and made to recant by disowning the wretched accused. The only way forward with these libs is a scorched earth path: burn them all.

    Which brings me to Grant. Great thread on the general, and the take-away is that war is not the province of gentle souls and civilized society. A smart army lagers all the miscreants during peacetime, and unleashes them when the balloon goes up. I wish Trump were twice as offensive as he now is to the libturds.

    The media long ago turned themselves into Pravda for the democrats. When Kennedy was president the journalists used to send their stories to the white house for approval.

    So glad to learn that Matt Lauer got canned. Never did like that domineering sob who reminds me in many ways of that repulsive Dan Rather.

    Keillor is a devout socialist and I’ve no use for him either. I’ve listened to his programs a few times and I came to the conclusion that he’s just likely to be the most boring man on the planet. I’d rather push needles into my eyes than listen to that drone.

    Nonetheless, it’s a fine day when we can retire these icons of Americana for what they really are even when, as in Keillor’s case, the charges may be a little trumped up, no pun intended of course.

    Regarding bears: I am told that advice to hikers in the great outdoors is to wear little bells, sold at REI and similar places, that attach to one’s shoelaces. These make a pleasant tinkling sound, and they alert the bears of your approach. The theory is that the bears, upon hearing your approach, will move away, so no human-bear contact, to the benefit of all parties concerned. The other bit of advice is to carry a can of bear spray, also available at outdoor shops.

    Outdoor guides will warn you, however, that not all bears are created equal. Specifically, black bears and brown bears are much less of a threat than grizzly bears. It is therefore useful to be able to tell which kind of bear may be in the vicinity. If you are fortunate enough to find some bear scat, that can be most useful. The guides say that you can often tell that a piece of bear scat is that of a grizzly because it will smell like bear spray and will contain little bells.

    I’m not sure Gary Keillor is all that devout. He’s quite wealthy, all earned out of his subsidized non-profit sinecure. I’m sure he’s okay with giving illegal immigrants plenty of welfare, but he doesn’t expect to pay for any of that himself.

    Or as we call him in Minnesota, our gentle, avuncular taxpayer-subsidized Bard of the Prairie.

    Grizzly, thank you for the bear lore. I loved your last sentence about signs of grizzlies getting fed up with tourists.
