The Deserter Honored in the Rose Garden

It's Wednesday, and in a couple of hours I'll be sitting in for Rush and guest-hosting America's Number One radio show. I hope you'll tune in either on one of over 600 radio stations across the country or via iHeartMedia livestream. I've no idea what's going to turn up on today's broadcast, but, in case this story doesn't arise, I'd like to say a word about it here: On Monday Bowe Bergdahl pleaded guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. He will be sentenced next week. To all but a mendacious Administration and its accomplices among the court eunuchs of the Obama media, the truth about this man was obvious from the day of his release by the Taliban three-and-a-half years ago.. Me on June 3rd 2014: In years to come, ...

Mark's Mailbox

I Was Colonial When Colonial Wasn't Cool

We had so many good questions from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet for last week's Clubland Q&A that Mark couldn't get to them all. So we saved a few of them for this latest video edition of Mark's Mailbox, starting with the case for "The Case for Colonialism" and against anti-colonialists who want to beat up editors of scholarly journals, and progressing to aspects of elite condescension and the death of comedy. Click below to watch:

"The Weinstein Company is Dead"

Welcome to a brand new week at SteynOnline. I spent part of my weekend with one of my favorite shows, "Justice with Judge Jeanine", on which both the Judge and I were preoccupied with the question of whether Harvey Weinstein, under investigation for rape and sexual assault by both the NYPD and Scotland Yard, will finally be getting justice. I was particularly disturbed by the New York cops making the Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez wear a wire - putting her at risk of certain physical assault had Weinstein discovered it - and then the sleazy DA, Cyrus Vance, mysteriously deciding to drop the case. From Breitbart News: "This woman, this Italian woman was twice traumatized. The first time was when Weinstein attacked her and touched ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

I Tawt I Taw A Puddy Tat

One hundred years ago today - October 15th 1917 - a man called Alan Livingston was born in McDonald, Pennsylvania. You probably don't know his name, and, if you think you know your songwriters, you may be confusing him with his older brother Jay Livingston, who with Ray Evans wrote "Que Sera Sera", "Mona Lisa", "Buttons and Bows" and the urban Christmas song "Silver Bells". Jay's kid brother doesn't have a song catalogue like that, but one way or another we owe a lot of the late 20th century's best known music to him...

Grating Chuckles and Shaken Dukes

Welcome to Part Six of our latest audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time: This tale is an undoubted classic, The Prisoner of Zenda by Anthony Hope. Last night Rudolf Rassendyll and Colonel Sapt returned to the hunting lodge at Zenda and discovered they were a king short. In tonight's episode Sapt is momentarily shocked at the realization that Black Michael has seized the King, but he quickly recovers: Suddenly he burst into one of his grating chuckles: 'By Jove, we've shaken up Black Michael! ...And we'll shake him up a bit more,' he added, a cunning smile broadening on his wrinkled, weather-beaten face, and his teeth working on an end of his grizzled moustache. 'Ay, lad, we'll go back to Strelsau. The King shall be in his ...
