Eclipsapalooza!

Notwithstanding the North Korean EMP attack scheduled for halfway through the broadcast, I'll do my best to illuminate the scene when I guest-host America's Number One radio show today, live across America for three hours at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific, even if there is a certain crepuscular gloom around the formerly Golden EIB Microphone. If you have the necessary receiving apparatus, I hope you'll dial us up - whether you're in or out of the Band of Totality. ~Last month I crossed a grim Rubicon: The beginning of the second half-decade of climate mullah Michael E Mann's defamation suit against me. So here we are in my sixth year in the hell of the DC court system - all over a 270-word blog post about fraudulent global-warming "hockey ...

Looking at the World through Total Eclipse Glasses

Programming note: Today, Total Eclipse Monday, Mark will guest-host America's Number One radio show today, live across the Path of Totality for three hours at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. We hope you can join him, either on one of 600 radio stations in the United States or via iHeartMedia livestream. On Sunday Mark started the day with "Fox & Friends" and, after some initial banter about needing special glasses for the guest hosts, turned to a state senator's call to assassinate the President, whether powerful Democrats in Congress were being blackmailed by their Pakistani IT staffers, and a disturbing trend to shrink speech and boost violence: Author Mark Steyn called for more exercise of free speech through debates than through protests. ...

Byrds of a Feather

Last night Mark made a rare Friday appearance with Tucker Carlson on Fox News to discuss two burning topics - the removal of Steve Bannon from the Trump White House, and Chelsea Clinton's comparison of the Confederacy to "Lucifer". Steyn was not persuaded by the former First Daughter's argument:

"I don't think she's very sound on the theology or the history," Steyn said. "If the Confederacy is Satanic, the church... of Satan is the Democratic Party," he said. "The Democrats were the biggest institutional supporters of slavery on the planet in the 19th Century. And they're the only ones to have survived into the 21st Century."

Steyn said Clinton herself was being even further hypocritical because her own father "presided" over the funeral of a former "exalted cyclops" of the KKK: Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.). He said that, using Clinton's analogy, Byrd would be considered a "Satanic archbishop."

We think it sounded funnier when Mark said it, but you can decide for yourself by clicking below to watch:

Less Speech Leads to More Violence

On Wednesday night Mark joined Tucker Carlson on Fox News to discuss the post-Charlottesville decisions by Google, Facebook, PayPal and other de facto global monopolies to kick off so-called "haters" and narrow the bounds of acceptable discourse. Steyn did not find this an encouraging trend:

On a related theme, here's Steyn from...

Steyn's Song of the Week

Love Me Tender

To round out our Elvis Week, I thought we'd celebrate the biggest hit song supposedly written by Elvis: These days more or less every pop star is expected to come up with his own songs. It wasn't always that way: Once upon a time, songwriters wrote songs, and singers sang them. Very occasionally, a singer ventured onto the writer's turf: Frank Sinatra genuinely wrote a handful of songs, including the much covered...

Mark at the Movies

Catch Me If You Can

Today, August 19th, is National Aviation Day in the United States, so I thought for our movie date we'd have an airy confection, about flight in both the aviation and criminal sense: Catch Catch Me If You Can if you can. It's a lovely movie and all the more surprising considering the Hollywood muscle powering it: Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio. These people have all made such terrible choices in recent years that you forget what it's like to see them in anything other than earnest pompous plonkers. Even John Williams dispenses with the big orchestral bombast and turns in his breeziest score in decades. It's almost groovy. Plus Christopher Walken gets to dance - not for long, alas - to "Embraceable You", with Nathalie Baye. ...

All Shook Up

Forty years ago Elvis Presley passed ...into a stunningly successful new phase of his career. All this week at SteynOnline, we've been marking the anniversary, starting starting with the man who invented Elvis, and moving on to the guy who wrote more Elvis songs than anybody else. This essay on death as a career move is from my book Mark Steyn From Head to Toe: August 16th marks exactly four decades since a 911 call from 3765 Elvis Presley Boulevard sent the paramedics scrambling for the ambulance. And we're still no nearer knowing the truth...
