A Se'nnight of Steyn, December 3-9

Happy Hanukkah to all our Jewish readers around the world. Our Mark at the Movies department scoured the cinematic archives for a film to mark the occasion, and came up with, gulp, Adam Sandler.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with a flash! and a bam! and an alakazam! (for our Song of the Week "Orange Colored Sky") and a damn! and a zounds! and an odd's fish! (for the conclusion of Mark's serialization of The Scarlet Pimpernel) - and a flash! zounds! bam! odd's fish! alakazam! and hasta la vista, muthaf**ker! for the news that serial litigant Cary Katz's CRTV, after losing its ten-million dollar lawsuit against Steyn, has ceased to exist.

~Mark's Monday Notebook considered the death of the English pub, and a Sotheby's auction item with the imprimatur of Steyn: it was our most-read piece of the week. Later Mark joined Tucker Carlson to giggle over Bill and Hillary's floppo stadium tour.

~On Tuesday's brand new video edition of Mark's Mailbox, Steyn answered questions from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on Saudi SOBs, Rotherham rape, British betrayal, conservative cowardice and other lively topics. Click below to watch:

Mark's Mailbox is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. For more on the Steyn Club, see below.

~On Wednesday Mark started the day on the curvy couch at "Fox & Friends". Among the subjects up for discussion were the gilets jaunes on the streets of Paris:

~On Thursday Steyn returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to look at new fronts in the war on Christmas:

~On Friday we launched the first of this year's festive Tales for Our Time - Mark's seasonal sampling of a Louisa May Alcott classic, Little Women at Christmas. Click for Part One and Part Two - and don't miss tonight's concluding installment.

Tales for Our Time is made possible thanks to members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are very thankful. You can find more details about the Steyn Club here. And don't forget our special Gift Membership, which makes a fine Christmas present, and this festive season comes with a special personalized Christmas card from Mark and a handsomely-engraved gift-boxed presentation of three of our most popular Tales for Our Time for your pal or relative to listen to in the car or perambulating through the wilderness or almost anywhere else. For more on our Christmas Gift Membership, see here.

~Steyn's Weekend Notebook mused on a world where "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is banned but your kid is heading to the nativity play with a blow-up sheep sex-doll from Amazon.

This Christmas season at SteynOnline, in lieu of a blow-up sheep, we have not only a slew of Steynamite Christmas specials and a classic festive CD but a couple of extra-special gift suggestions, such as two on the aisle for the first ever Dennis Miller/Mark Steyn tour, or a stateroom with your loved one's name on it for the second Mark Steyn Club Cruise.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week and the conclusion of Little Women at Christmas.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with a song to put a pep in your step: "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah."

~Mark's Monday Notebook considered the bollardization of Christmas, a Hokey-Cokey Brexit, and the UN's plan to move the world into your rec room: it was our most-read piece of the week. Later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to ponder a leftie's case against open borders. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark hosted another edition of Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on everything from the Honduran caravan and the Brexit betrayal to the shriveled horizons of the establishment right. To hear the full show, click here.

~On Thursday Steyn returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to ponder Al Gore's attempt to re-start his doomsday clock:

~On Friday Mark made his debut appearance with Mighty Mike Faust on WEEU for a wide-ranging conversation, and to herald the launch of the first ever Dennis Miller/Mark Steyn tour in Reading, Pennyslvania:

Tickets for the Miller/Steyn night in Reading are available here or in person at the Weidenhammer Box Office at the Santander Arena - or by telephone at 1-800-745-3000.

~Steyn's Weekend Notebook mused on the social justice warriors taking the tire-iron to Rudolph's red nose, and the passing of George H W Bush. For our Saturday movie date he buttered up Bertolucci with Last Tango in Paris.

Our marquee presentation was the latest nightly audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - Mark's reading of Baroness Orczy's classic tale of France's Reign of Terror, The Scarlet Pimpernel. Click for Part Seventeen, Part Eighteen, Part Nineteen, Twenty, Twenty-One, Twenty-Two and Twenty-Three - or start right at the beginning and enjoy a good old binge-listen.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, November 12-18

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with the one hundredth anniversary of the Armistice. Steyn looked back on the war that made the world we live in, picked out some songs of love and war, and before a live audience performed the only poem we could have chosen for that day.

Steyn's Sunday Poem is made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. For more on the Steyn Club, see here.

~Mark's Monday Notebook considered a tale of two migrants and their brief meeting on the streets of Melbourne: It was our most-read piece of the week. Later, Steyn joined a sorely put-upon Tucker Carlson to contemplate Hillary Clinton's third presidential run. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark swung by "The Dennis Miller Option" to discuss the US midterms, the Armistice, Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, Doug McClure and more. Click below to listen:

Steyn and Miller will be on stage together for the first time in a must-see mini-tour of Pennsylvania and western New York (also not too inconvenient for any Ontario fans) - and at all four events there's a special opportunity to meet Dennis and Mark immediately after the show.

~On Wednesday Steyn joined John Oakley on Toronto's Global News Radio 640 to chew over an unusually raw political memoir in Ontario and the interminable recount in Florida:

~On Thursday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark's hard heart was briefly cheered by a feelgood story that suddenly went bad:

~On Friday Steyn ended the week guest-hosting America's Number One radio show. As to a certain impending second Mark Steyn cruise he mentioned, you can find more details of that here.

~Mark's weekend column noted the passing of Marvel Comics impresario Stan Lee and, in the age of X-Men and Avengers, wondered whatever happened to non-super heroes. For our Saturday movie date he saluted the screenwriter of Butch Cassidy and The Princess Bride, William Goldman.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, November 5-11

This year's Remembrance Day and Veterans Day is also the one hundredth anniversary of the Armistice that ended the Great War. Today Mark looks back on the war that made the world we live in. Later this morning he'll be presenting the most popular poem to emerge from those four years of carnage.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with Mark's thoughts on a disgraceful European court decision: "Rationalizing our surrender."

~On Monday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark and Tucker considered the virtues of nationalism.

~For US Election Day, Tuesday, Steyn presented the biggest hit song ever written by an American governor: "You Are My Sunshine." He also hosted another edition of Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on the election, free speech and, of course, transphobic waxologists. To hear the full show, click here.

~On Wednesday Mark pondered the morning after, with the blue wave that wasn't and a red trickle in the Senate. It was our most-read piece of the week. He also joined Dave Allen on 570 WSYR in Syracuse for more election talk.

~On Thursday Mark remembered Quebec's late premier and would-be president, Bernard Landry. Later he weighed in on the antifa mob's siege of Tucker Carlson's home, and the latest breakthrough in self-identification: transitioning to a younger age.

~On Friday Mark launched the latest audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - Baroness Orczy's classic tale of derring-do The Scarlet Pimpernel. To hear Steyn read Friday's episode, click here. For Saturday's, click here.

Tales for Our Time is made possible thanks to members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more details on the Steyn Club see here.

The Mark Steyn Show is produced with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. You can find more details about the Steyn Club here. And don't forget our special Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates).

~On Saturday Mark contemplated with horror the Return of the Florida Recount and our weekend movie date celebrated Chads of the silver screen.

Steyn and the great Dennis Miller will be on stage together for the first time in a must-see mini-tour of Pennsylvania and western New York (also not too inconvenient for any Ontario fans) - and at all four events there's a special opportunity to meet Dennis and Mark immediately after the show.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, October 29-November 4

Happy Standard Time to our North American readers this Sunday morning. On Tuesday's US Election Day, Mark will be hosting another Clubland Q&A live around the planet, but, with the time change, do please pay close attention to local airtime.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with Mark reacting to the synagogue slaughter in Pittsburgh, and then reacting to the reaction - with a side-note on "Florida men" and Sinéad O'Connor's conversion to Islam. It was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Monday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark and Tucker considered Hillary Clinton's "racist" joke and Lester Holt's whiteface routine.

~On Tuesday Steyn saluted a man of big books and big ideas, Michael Crichton.

~On Wednesday Mark checked in with John Oakley on Toronto's Global News Radio 640 to discuss calls to ban Steve Bannon from the Munk Debate, and the broader issues of populism and globalism. Click below to listen:

Afterwards it was time for SteynOnline's Halloween observances with a bewitching song and a black cat. If you'd prefer a gigantic black insect to cross your path, Mark also wrapped up the latest audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - Franz Kafka's classic novella Metamorphosis. A First Day Founding Member of The Mark Steyn Club, Nancy Wenlock, enjoyed it:

Once again a brilliant rendering of an astonishing story.

But her fellow Club member Steven Payne felt differently:

I think this is crap.

Feel free to reach your own judgment: Click to hear Part Three, Part Four, Part Five and Part Six. Tales for Our Time is made possible thanks to members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more details on the Steyn Club see here. And stay tuned for Mark's latest radio serial, launching this Friday.

~On Thursday Steyn and Tucker Carlson pondered the Democrat media's ever more open contempt for half the citizenry.

~Friday's brand new edition of The Mark Steyn Show presented a special Free Speech Forum recorded before a live audience on the recent Mark Steyn cruise and featuring indispensable blogger Kathy Shaidle, singer-songwriter Tal Bachman and broadcaster and parliamentary candidate Andrew Lawton.

Next weekend Mark will be in San Francisco at a gala fundraiser for the indispensable Pacific Research Institute with Victor Davis Hanson. That's on November 10th at the Ritz-Carlton, and Mark Steyn Club members can get a $50 discount on tickets by clicking here and scrolling down.

Steyn and the great Dennis Miller will be on stage together for the first time in a must-see mini-tour of Pennsylvania and western New York (also not too inconvenient for any Ontario fans) - and at all four events there's a special opportunity to meet Dennis and Mark immediately after the show.

Late on Friday, nine months after Judge Gordon's decision in CRTV's ten-million-dollar lawsuit and various fruitless delaying maneuvers by Cary Katz and his gang (aided by the general torpor of the American courts), Her Honor's award in favor of Steyn was finally entered in judgment. We thank all the camera crew, audio engineers, makeup artists and other production members who stuck with us during this difficult time: these are the people who make the video and audio content you see at this site (and elsewhere, as when Tucker Carlson hosts his Fox News show from our Vermont studio). As many readers know, after Katz and CRTV lost, they refused to accept the result and bugger off out of our lives, and immediately re-sued us for a combined twenty million dollars. For those interested (and we confess we're bored to death by this narcissist serial litigant), we've provided a handy guide to the multiple Katz/CRTV lawsuits against Mark, linking to the most recent court orders and other developments.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week, and continues with a special US Election Day edition of Clubland Q&A live at 4pm North American Eastern time.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, October 22-28

In the wake of yesterday's slaughter at a Pittsburgh synagogue by a man shouting "Death to all Jews", Mark will be on stage in Newton, Massachusetts today to speak to CJUI (Christians and Jews United for Israel). It's at the Boston Marriott in Newton and starts at 3pm.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with a centenary celebration of Jack Segal and his two biggest, if very different, songs - as sung by Nat "King" Cole and Islam's newest revert, Sinéad O'Connor.

~Mark's Monday Notebook pondered the west's strategy of fighting for Kandahar while surrendering Cannes - with a side-note on when Sgt Joe Friday got blue, and why Steyn is even bluer.

~Tuesday's edition of Mark's Mailbox found Steyn answering queries from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on war in the streets, transcendent meaning and demographic decay, the lack of a Royal Fetus, and to beard or not to beard, that is the question. Click below to watch:

Mark's Mailbox is produced with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. You can find more details about the Steyn Club here. And don't forget our special Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates).

~On Wednesday "suspicious packages" arrived at the homes of the Clintons, Obama and other Democrat luminaries. Mark considered the mailings and the reactions thereto in what was our most-read piece of the week. On a day of further revelations about what happened in that Istanbul consulate, he also looked at the man who put the Saud in Saudi Arabia. Click below to watch:

~On Thursday Mark returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to address a disturbing response from Democrats and too many Republicans alike - that more violence should mean less speech. Click below to watch:

~On Friday Mark launched the latest audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - Franz Kafka's classic novella Metamorphosis - and read its famous opening sentence:

As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect.

To hear Steyn read Friday's episode, click here. For Saturday's, click here.

Tales for Our Time is made possible thanks to members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more details on the Steyn Club see here.

~Saturday marked the twentieth anniversary of The National Post, a paper whose early years Mark was proud to be a big part of. He celebrated with a cavalcade of Steyn classics, starting with his shameful ties to Tony Blair. He then found himself inside Buckingham Palace and outside Bar Erotica; choking up at the heartwarming friendship between McCain and Bush; sauntering along the nude beaches of St Tropez admiring the viceregal wedding tackle; gazing enviously at David Frum's fatwa; and. finally, refusing to bow to the Pinkshirts.

With Halloween approaching, our weekend movie date celebrated Mark's favorite vampire - Christopher Lee.

After today's appearance at the Boston Marriott in Newton Mark will be looking ahead to San Francisco - where he'll be at a gala fundraiser for the indispensable Pacific Research Institute with Victor Davis Hanson. That's on November 10th at the Ritz-Carlton, and Mark Steyn Club members can get a $50 discount on tickets by clicking here and scrolling down.

Steyn and the great Dennis Miller will be on stage together for the first time in a must-see mini-tour of Pennsylvania and western New York (also not too inconvenient for any Ontario fans) - and at all four events there's a special opportunity to meet Dennis and Mark immediately after the show.

As many readers know, Cary Katz and his CRTV goons sued Steyn for ten million dollars, lost at arbitration, and then in court, but refuse to accept the result and bugger off out of our lives. For those interested (and we confess we're bored to death by this narcissist serial litigant), we've provided a handy guide to the multiple Katz/CRTV lawsuits against Mark, linking to the most recent court orders and other developments.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, October 15-21

Mark will be live in Newton, Massachusetts a week from today. For more details, see below. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with Mark discussing media know-nothings, the Gosnell grosses, whatever happened to Peggy Sue, and - the major news of the hour - the Nova Scotia duck-tolling retriever: it was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Monday evening Steyn and Tucker Carlson mulled two of the week's big topics - the Saudi consulate accidentally questioning a man to death, and Elizabeth Warren taking a DNA test to prove that, as she's one one-thousand-and-twenty-fourth Native American, she totally qualifies as Harvard Law School's "first woman of color". Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark hosted another edition of Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on the Middle East, identity politics, and much more. To hear the full show, click here.

~On Wednesday Canada became the first G7 nation to legalize pot. Steyn braved the smoke-shrouded perfumed air of Toronto to join the great John Oakley on the radio. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday Mark and Tucker chewed over Keira Knightley and other A-list talent going #MeToo on the Disney back catalogue.

~On Friday the House of Saud did a modified limited chop-up hang-out and admitted that their consular services now include full-scale dismemberment. Steyn's weekend round-up considered the issue, as well as Canada's oddly coercive tolerance, and Dennis Miller's sketch aversion. Adding to the weekend gaiety, Mark sold his soul to the Denial Devil.

~Our Saturday movie date celebrated the original singing cowboy Gene Autry. We also marked the centenary of singer-songwriter Bobby Troup with an audio special featuring live music from Mark, Cheryl Bentyne of the Manhattan Transfer, and Tal Bachman, and with a video edition of Steyn's Song of the Week. Click below to watch:

Steyn's Song of the Week is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. You can find more details about the Steyn Club here. And don't forget our special Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates).

The saddest news of the week was the death on Tuesday morning of Mark's beloved cat TJ. We thank you for all your kind comments on the loss of a talented colleague, seen here (albeit under a stage name) lending his luster to Steyn and Tony nominee Marla Schaffel in a song from Feline Groovy:

As many readers know, the low point of Cary Katz and CRTV's ten-million-dollar lawsuit against Steyn came when one of their goons attempted to steal TJ's cat tree. CRTV continues to deny that they've lost their suit against Mark and, rather than pay up and move on, the serial litigant Katz has recently undergone his own dead Katz bounce in both the New York Supreme Court and the American Arbitration Association (where the great TJ cat-tree heist is part of the case - see Statement 68 of CRTV's claim here). For those interested, we've provided a handy guide to the multiple Katz/CRTV lawsuits against Mark, linking to the most recent court orders and other developments. But, whatever happens, that litigious creep is never getting TJ's cat tree.

Next Sunday, October 28th, at 3pm, Steyn will be at the Boston Marriott in Newton to accept the Genesis Award from CJUI (Christians and Jews United for Israel). Aside from speaking, he'll also be signing copies of Lights Out - so it should be a fun afternoon, and if you're in the vicinity of Greater Boston we hope to see you there.

Mark will also be live on stage in San Francisco - at a gala fundraiser for the indispensable Pacific Research Institute with Victor Davis Hanson. That's on November 10th at the Ritz-Carlton, and Mark Steyn Club members can get a $50 discount on tickets by clicking here and scrolling down.

Steyn and Dennis Miller have added a couple of extra dates to their first tour together in Pennsylvania and western New York: They'll now be in Reading, Syracuse, Rochester and Wilkes-Barre (some of which are not too inconvenient for many Ontario fans) - and at all four events there's a special opportunity to meet Dennis and Mark immediately after the show.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, October 8-14

A week after the inaugural SRO Mark Steyn Cruise, it was announced that Mark will be back on stage for a tour with the legendary Dennis Miller. To pre-book your tickets, and for news of other live appearances, see below. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with Mark's remembrance of the great French troubadour Charles Aznavour and, respectively, his biggest American and British hits.

~Mark's Monday Notebook focused on the similarities between President Trump and a recent judicial hearing, and a certain effete Canadian's battles with the state's thought police - with an aside on the great hit machine of Bachman-Bachmann Overdrive. It was our most-read piece of the week.

Later that day Mark returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to discuss the colossus of the twentieth century (Clinton) and a discredited peripheral figure we should all forget about (Churchill). Click below to watch:

~Tuesday's Topical Take found Mark mulling Kavanaugh, Kennedy, and the power of the American judiciary.

~On Wednesday Steyn rounded up three spirits-of-the-age news stories: A squirrel can be a service animal, a white man can be a person of color, but a woman can no longer be a woman.

~On Thursday Mark and Tucker chewed over the latest cover story for the Obama Administration's banana-republic interference with the 2016 election campaign:

If you haven't yet seen Mark's one-hour interview with Tucker about his terrific new book Ship of Fools, you're missing a treat.

~Friday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show was recorded during the sold-out Mark Steyn cruise before a live audience from America, Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere, and featured Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer talking about the trials and tribulations of being an Irish conservative, the new all-gay all-Muslim all-abortion Ireland, and how to make compulsive drama out of the Ferguson, Missouri grand jury transcripts. They also discussed their new movie, which opened this weekend - Gosnell. Click below to watch:

As Mark Steyn Club member Steven Payne commented, "Great couple, great show" - even though, as Steven noticed, the shy and retiring Ann is hard to draw out of her shell. Mark's review of Gosnell is here.

The Mark Steyn Show is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. You can find more details about the Steyn Club here. And don't forget our special Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates).

~Our Saturday movie date marked the centenary of Robert Walker and celebrated his unforgettable performance in Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train. And, with Hurricane Michael in mind, we also reprised Mark's special on Songs in the Keys of Florida.

On the inaugural Mark Steyn Cruise many cruisers said to us that their dream guest for the next voyage would be the hilarious Dennis Miller. Well, we don't know about Dennis' sea legs, but he and Mark are getting together on stage for the first time for a tour of Pennsylvania and western New York (which is not too inconvenient for many Ontario fans). You can pre-book your tickets for Reading, Pennsylvania here, and for Syracuse, New York here - and in both there's a special opportunity to meet Dennis and Mark before the show.

Steyn will also be live on stage in San Francisco - at a gala fundraiser for the indispensable Pacific Research Institute with Victor Davis Hanson. That's on November 10th at the Ritz-Carlton, and Mark Steyn Club members can get a $50 discount on tickets by clicking here and scrolling down.

In legal news, CRTV continue to deny that they've lost their suit against Steyn and to refuse to pay up and move on. For those interested, we've provided a handy guide to CRTV deadbeat Cary Katz's multiple lawsuits against Mark. We will update this page and link to the most recent court orders and other developments as soon as they're available.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with a brand new live-performance video edition of our Song of the Week - and continues with another of Mark's Clubland Q&A broadcasts, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet at 4pm North American Eastern on Tuesday (that's 8pm GMT, if you want to work out your own time zone).

A Se'nnight of Steyn, October 1-7

Greetings to our readers, listeners and viewers around the world. The inaugural (and sold out) Mark Steyn Club Cruise docked at Boston yesterday, and Mark is now back on dry land. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to him from up in the crow's nest:

~The week began with a great song that has everything but a title.

~On Monday we presented Steyn's one-hour conversation with Tucker Carlson to mark the publication of his new book Ship of Fools. Mark and Tucker discussed everything from impending civil war to unpasteurized cheese to what it's like to find yourself on the receiving end of false rape allegations. Click below to watch:

~Tuesday's brand new SteynPost found Mark examining the clash of populism and post-democracy:

SteynPosts is made possible by members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see below.

~In the wake of the CAQ victory in Quebec, Wednesday's Topical Take revisited Mark's view on the different approach to majority rights and identity politics between the Anglosphere and the rest of the west. It was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Thursday Andrew Lawton interviewed Steyn in depth on immigration - north and south of the border, and around the world.

~On Friday Mark concluded his reading of our latest nightly audio adventure in Tales for Our Time - a race across Europe to prevent an Islamic uprising in John Buchan's Great War thriller Greenmantle. Click for Part Seventeen, Part Eighteen, Part Nineteen, Twenty, Twenty-One and Twenty-Two - or, for Mark Steyn Club members, settle in for a good old binge-listen here. Josh, a first-weekend Founding Member of the Steyn Club, was one of many who enjoyed the thrilling finale:

What a cracking last chapter, and how crackingly read! I fairly shivered when you sang 'John Brown's Body'.

Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. You can find more details about the Steyn Club here. And don't forget our special Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates).

~On Saturday, the day Judge Kavanaugh ascended to the Supreme Court, Mark's movie date addressed the underlying reason for the Democrats' Kavanaugh hysteria - abortion - and this week's release of the story of America's all-time champion serial killer: Gosnell.

In legal news, CRTV continue to deny that they've lost their suit against Steyn and to refuse to pay up and move on. For those interested, we've provided a handy guide to CRTV deadbeat Cary Katz's multiple lawsuits against Mark. We will update this page as the sleazy Katz adds to his swelling number of cases against Steyn, and link to the most recent court orders as soon as they're available.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
