Dear Mr. Steyn,
I'm a mother Of elementary school children and every parent I've come in contact with this week have expressed their disgust with "guns" far more than any disgust with the deranged and hollowed souls of the people using them to murder the innocent. In my opinion, Americans aren't helpless to the political agendas controlling the narrative. Every American should close all of their social media accounts to start. I believe this action would send a message that Americans are going to pay attention to what's right before them in their own lives and not about FB posts or tweets from anyone. Social media is a waste of precious time that rots the spoiled and emboldens the trouble makers, giving them platforms to reach more of the same, feeding this wacked- out zombie society.
Enough of blaming this or that, wake up America, stop with virtual engaging and see what happens if we go back to being social without the media. Thank you for reading my comment.

My first thought when learning of the Craven reaction of police in Uvalde, Texas was that the same happened at the Polytechnique massacre in Montreal in 1989. Same refusal by police to actually confront the perpetrator and instead wait. For what exactly?

Hi Mark, do you think we are entering a post-democractic, post-Enlightenment period? With the WEF as committed as ever to their Great Reset agenda, and nearly every Western leader in their thrall, will we see a return to a neo-feudal society where we are ruled by an unelected, unaccountable oligarchy of elites? Thanks, and have a nice Memorial Day weekend!

Hi, Mark. Did you happen to take in New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's Harvard Commencement Address this week?
She received standing ovations talking about gun control and disinformation control on social media. She emphasized that democracy is in peril if we don't trust experts and our governments.
What's your take on Jacinda Ardern? Is she the future of the West? She was elected PM at age 37. Can we expect AOC to be President in just 5 years?
Btw, in case you might doubt her woke bona fides, she did a long intro in Maori, wore a Maori kakahu cloak over her academic robes, and her daughter has a Maori middle name even though neither the father nor anyone in her family is Maori. Duh, no kidding.

Traditionally, American children would dream of being President/Baseball players/ Astronauts/ etc. Whether or not we're ever serious about those aims for any period of time, the presumption that anyone could be anything they set their mind to (as we were raised in the 20th Century anyhow) virtually assures that it crosses our mind at some point that we could be President no matter how farcical a dream it might be.
As a subject of the Crown, have you ever dreamed of being King. Do you think you'd be a good one?

Mark, one (hopeful) analysis of the Durham trial strategy is that he is putting the defense in the position of having to prove that the FBI was aware that the whole thing was hoax from the beginning. The judge appears to be somewhat hostile to Durham. If such a strategy is to work, it will require some accommodation by the judge. Could this be a double faint, with the end result having everything discarded and Durham sent home with a nice thank you from Biden?

Here's a comment that will put some colour in everyone's faces.
My solution for the problems with the Irish border is as follows. Have a hard border and send a few regiments there to take care of whatever IRA scum are running around. Put the fleet in the North Sea to ensure the flow of goods remain uninterrupted. Patrol the EU side of the North Sea and Channel Coast with Vanguard Class subs.
I told you this earlier. But I want to go a step further by saying the Sinn Fein should be made illegal and its party leaders arrested, tried, and sentenced for treason. Make an example out of those Fenion idiots. If they can lock grannies in their flats for eons over Covid surely they can bend the rules to make life miserable for Sinn Fein.
Secondly, if Ireland allows the IRA to use their side of the border as a base from which to conduct an insurgency, declare war on Ireland and let the EU know that any interference on their part will be treated as an act of war.
Finally, put the economy on a wartime footing, significantly expand the armed forces, withdraw from NATO, and enter into a defensive pact with Russia and Hungary to deter the EU from further aggression against Britain. This will brown off the Americans but it will serve them right for screwing Britain during the Suez Canal Crisis.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Big Pharma has a lot to be ashamed of and is far from being beyond suspicion. Their refusal to answer to the data on the efficacy, side effects and deaths from their vaccines is shameful if not criminal. I also think they might be in cahoots with government bureaucrats in suppressing the efficacy of previous inexpensive over-the-counter remedied (hydroxychloroquine) and preventive measures (zinc and vitamin D). And we
shouldn't rule out they might even be lining the pockets of government officials.
However, do you worry like I do that we might go too far in our criticism of Big Pharma? Or maybe that we are sending mixed messages to them and the FDA? It was the CDC that went full steam ahead with recommending vaccines for
children despite FDA findings. Big Pharma isn't the one mandating their products.
On the other hand, the FDA has been known to drag their feet in approving drugs that might help terminal cancer patients. Many in the USA cannot get these drugs when they are available in other countries. I lost a neighbor
this year to cancer. There was an encouraging treatment overseas he couldn't
access because the FDA had not approved it.
It seems to me the big issue is the government mandates: jabs, masks, and lockdowns. Elected officials are too cowardly to ignore the likes of Dr. Fauci's CDC and his ilk who claim to "follow the science". I worry if we beat up Big Pharma too much there will be calls for limits on patents or other regulations limiting new medicines, or it might even make the FDC more risk averse when it comes to approving new drugs for people who desperately
want them and volunteer to use them.

I know you like to celebrate anniversaries and such, but I fear you missed one. Though you did allude to a person who factored into the event just a week or so ago.
Saturday, March 21, 1964: Eurovision Song Contest, Tivolis Koncertsal, Copenhagen, Denmark. Matt Monro represents the UK singing "I Love The Little Things", reportedly a song he didn't like but he was required to sing as it was chosen by the BBC. He placed second in the most lopsided rout in the history of the contest to Italy's lovely 16-year-old Miss Gigliola Cinquetti who sang what many consider the best song to ever come from the contest, "Non ho l'età (per amarti)", Italian for, "I'm not old enough (to love you)." She would go on to sell millions of copies of the song as it was a smash hit throughout Europe.
But it wasn't the only melody that would find favor with the public that night. Monro was the eighth participant to sing that night but two participants before him was Austria's contestant, Udo Jürgens, with his own composition, "Warum nur, warum?" Jürgens would go on to place a respectable sixth that night (and winning two years' later).
Monro didn't speak a word of German, but liked the melody of Jürgens' song and asked his manager, Don Black, to put an English lyric to it. Just a few months later that song would start moving up the charts as, "Walk Away". The song crossed the pond and rose to number 7 in America, becoming Monro's biggest seller, up to that point. The song would also have a tremendous impact upon future Bond theme songs as John Barry, the composer of the early Bond soundtracks, reportedly loved the song. Solely on his enjoyment of the song he asked Don Black to do the lyrics to the next Bond theme, "Thunderball". Black would go on to write many more Bond lyrics as time went on.
My question is do you have any thought to having any of the people mentioned above on to discuss any of the songs mentioned above? I think it would be worth watching or listening in.

Does anyone commenting here truly understand the transformation of a town close to the southern border, like Uvalde Texas, and what it has undergone since the politicians erased the border? It was a town of about 25000 people and has a tax base of that amount. It has swelled to suddenly become a town of non-English-speaking Latinos and is a hallmark example of what is transforming America. No one can keep up with the population growth of any town in Texas. Illegals are running into Texas and disappearing. Texas was once it's own country and has historically been a Mexico-friendly community. Uvalde has always had many Latino American citizen families. Before people in Britain and around the world talk about the shortcomings of the law enforcement and school system there, would it not be better to understand the impossibility of our culture and keep it in perspective? This is the first time I have been annoyed at the narrow mindedness of the commentary here and comparing it to England. Small southern US towns often have a more relaxed atmosphere, and no one would have imagined this could happen in Uvalde. This murderer was 16 when pandemic began, and a dropout by 18, and without parents who cared (maybe even the son of illegals - we'll see ), but shouldn't everyone wait until all facts are known before criticizing anyone in this horrible tragedy? Except Beto O'Rourke, and he's worth criticizing when he breathes. in any language. Bully on the show - your success will prevent you from cancellation Impray!
