The Sentimentalization of Public Policy

WhatsApp

On Monday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight", I joined Tucker to discuss the so-called "crisis" of family separation at the US border. I refer in the course of the interview to the sentimentalization of public policy, but I have to say, between her thinly veiled contempt for the sob-sisters of the White House press corps and her firm re-statement of what the law requires, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was admirably unsentimental at today's press conference. I'd like a bit more of that from Washington bigwigs.

Anyway, here's my view of it. Click below to watch:

The Dissolution of the People

WhatsApp

Sunday was not just Father's Day but the 65th anniversary of the June 17th 1953 Volksaufstand - the people's uprising - in East Germany. Over a million people in hundreds of towns marched against Soviet puppet Walter Ulbricht under banners declaring "We want to be free, not slaves." Russian tanks put down the rebellion, with some difficulty, and that was that - for thirty-six years. Bertolt Brecht, East Germany's playwright (and lyricist of our...

Steyn's Song of the Week

Nessun dorma

WhatsApp

The World Cup is underway in Russia. I caught a few moments in a favorite Irish pub in Toronto yesterday, in between pints of Guinness with the great John Oakley. Without Cameroon I'm not sure I have a dog in this fight, and it may be that the livelier action is off the pitch, what with the Cossacks promising to ride in and break up canoodling gays. But music-wise there's no doubt about the all-time great World Cup song - from a memorable championship in Italy seven World Cups ago. Back in the Eighties, when Luciano Pavarotti's people at Decca Records and elsewhere were trying to leverage him into a bona fide pop celebrity, their chosen vehicle was a misbegotten movie called Yes, Giorgio, a Mario Lanza backstage musical for a generation ...
