Keeping His Hand In

Martin Landau died a week ago at the age of 89. He was a versatile actor who connected less often than he should have with the perfect part, but, when he did, there was none better. In the late Sixties, he was a TV fixture on "Mission: Impossible", playing the most watchable character Rollin Hand, a master of disguise who could pass himself off as almost anyone. It was a fun role for Landau, and created for him (the name of the part in early scripts was "Martin Land") and his particular talents: half the time, to make it even more enjoyable, they had him play the guy he was meant to be impersonating, too. Needless to say, as part of its general abuse of the source material, Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible franchise dispensed with the Hand ...

The Real Crime

On Saturday morning, Mark started the day with Abby, Pete and Clayton on "Fox & Friends" discussing the latest ructions inside and outside the White House:

The "selective leaks" of sensitive information that have plagued this administration are the real crime, Steyn said.

Mueller expanded the Russia probe this week to include Trump's personal finances, including a 2008 Florida real estate deal. The president hit back in a statement, saying the intrusion was beyond the intended scope of the probe.

The only interference in the 2016 presidential election was not by the Russians but by the "deep state, the permanent bureaucracy, the media, the Democrats, and half the Republican party, who have not accepted what happened on a Tuesday night in November and have determined to interfere with it."

Steyn on the World

Diversity and Disintegration

The most important determination the media make is deciding what category a story falls into. For example, NPR recently ran a report asking the following: How Did Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Pop Up In Spain? Oddly enough, despite the headline, the reporter doesn't seem that interested in answering the question. What follows is a public-health story: The disease is a tick-borne, Ebola-like virus. Because it's a lesser-known illness, it is often misdiagnosed. So there aren't very good official statistics on the number of cases in many parts of the world. It's normally found in North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. But in 2016, two cases cropped up in Spain. Last September, a 62-year-old man in Madrid died after being bitten by ...

Working the Room (Collusion Edition)

On Wednesday night, Mark joined Tucker Carlson live on Fox News to discuss the shocking revelation that at a meeting of world leaders Trump met with a world leader. Also under discussion: Trump's literal fitness for office. Steyn said the media's fixation on Trump's superficial traits like his weight or his diet represents his "cultural offensiveness" to them... "I never saw Winston Churchill jogging and it didn't seem to affect his performance," Steyn said. He joked that the media wants to "force Trump into eating arugula and jogging because he represents the other side of the cultural divide." Arugula? Why, yes: STEYN: Well, I think it represents his cultural offensiveness to his opponents. You recall that at one point when he was on the ...

The Son of the Man who Put the Saud in Saudi Arabia

I see that Prince Abdul-Rahman bin Abdulaziz al Saud died the other day. If you're having trouble keeping track of your Saudi princes, well, I don't blame you. Unlike the closely held princely titles of the House of Windsor, the House of Saud is somewhat promiscuous with the designation: there are (at the time of writing) over 10,000 Saudi "princes" running around the country - and, in fact, at this time of year, more likely running around Mayfair and the French Riviera, exhausting the poor old blondes from the escort agencies. I believe that's Abdul-Rahman at right, although to be honest all Saudi princes look alike to me, except that some wear white and others look very fetching in gingham. As I once remarked to Sheikh Ghazi al-Ghosaibi, ...

Yes, But...

Programming note: Tomorrow, Wednesday, I'll be on radio and TV north and south of the border. First up, I'll be back with the great John Oakley on Toronto's AM640 live at 5pm Eastern. Then at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific I'll be checking in with Tucker Carlson coast to coast across America on Fox News. I do hope you can join me for one or the other, or preferably both, as one of them is my favorite interviewer and the other is my favourite interviewer. ~Yesterday's SteynPost was a demographic primer on "The Biggest Issue of Our Time", and it attracted a lot of reaction. Reading the characteristically thoughtful responses from Mark Steyn Club members, it occurred to me it might make a good subject for a new Clubland Q&A. Ever since I started ...
