You know Mark I was speaking to my 87-year-old uncle today who's done well by mainly horse trading land and owning some businesses but not through the fruits of an indoctrinated college education for which he has none. One might think being of his age that is very convenient to be contrarian and jaded by the experiences of life but the reality was he said that the next 100 years are going to be a hell of a lot harder than the last hundred. He observed government is just trying to shove us all into apartments give us a stipend for internet healthcare and a mobile phone with miserable dictated life. He gave a specific examples of extreme subsidies already under the covers enabled by our endless number of agencies instituting socialization of the USA. He said if inflation comes to a head as he believes it will, we'll be lucky to drive up the road without being shot, and the absence of farmers and an agrarian society will create food shortages and social strife. Just a little sunshine for your Friday. Nobody could be a bigger fan of yours Mark!

Hey Mark and fellow Club members! I think that I am going to ask about a local issue: the price of a house in Iowa in 2022. I have an app on my phone that alerts me when a house comes on the market and lets me click it to see the listing as well as pictures of the home and price. Even in my humble community, the price of a home is skyrocketing with even dingy homes in a bad part of town rising 80% in price from where they were a couple years ago. Buying even a modest home can render a person "house poor."
It's my understanding that this is a widespread phenomenon. How can this be happening when we're merely removed from the housing crash by a little more than a decade in the US? Are we destined to become renters as opposed to owners?

Fantastic ratings and shows!
In considering the amount of cultural rot in all of the western countries, does it all boil down to selling our souls and anything attached for money, power and personal gain? If our western culture is to be salvaged and restored, where should we begin? Our governments are impotent and in ineffective in practically all western countries. Weak governments breed destruction. Is it as simple as opening up the churches snd refusing to close businesses?

As you and others have pointed out, the American Revolution was only actively supported by about one third of the population, with one third remaining as Loyalists and one third as Captain Louis Renaults, blowing with the wind. This 33% threshold number seems to have magical powers. For example, it handily will elect a Liberal government in the Dominion of Canada.
Although the peasants might be revolting in various places, I'm concerned that they are currently only at about the 20% mark, well shy of anything substantive happening. Maybe we're at Boston Tea Party levels of anger and we've a way to go before Lexington and Concord. So it's party like it's 1773? Remember when the press mocked Sarah Palin for getting that correct?

Please explain as I think only you could, the difference between American Conservatives and British Conservatives (Tories is it?) and American Republicans and U.K. Republicans. The R word is a word more often spoken than contemplated. Please forgive my pedestrian understanding of British politics. How does a Conservative Monarchist of Her Majesty's Commonwealth become a conservative, undocumented "American" Republican? God bless the English language.
I'm a bit of an Anglophile with my television habits. I love watching you on GB News. It is the last journalistic organization to make a positive contribution to society. I have great respect for the UK as any American should, if interested in our national heritage. In the interest of brevity I'll spare you my theory of the Holy Grail and Western Civilization's spread to North America. Cheers.

Mark... a comment rather than a question: Thank you for covering the stories that matter - from the people who don't - on GBNews. And congratulations on your well-deserved ratings success.
PS. Optional question: is your personal preference the US or the UK as we go off the cliff?

Has anyone noticed that the President of Sri Lanka fled to the Maldives????
Isn't that a place about to sink beneath the waves? In fact, shouldn't it be under water already? Isn't it supposed to be generating refugees, rather than accepting them?
Or maybe the "climate-change" alchemists don't really believe all this rubbish themselves.

I have referred to America the same way that people used to talk about vagrants -- no visible means of support. I don't see how America, Britain, Canada, etc. can get out of this predicament. We can't return to our cultural roots.
If you are going out for groceries stay sharp!

Further to Eric Dale, the price of property in Montreal has also skyrocketed. These days we get 20something "students" from China buying the endless supply of condos built on an industrial scale for cash.
Congratulations on the great ratings and excellent content of your GBNews show! Best to you and fellow club members.

While England appears to have Pakistani Muslim rape gangs in Telford among other localities, here in the USA we've had a tragic and confusing story about a supposed 9-year-old girl being raped by a 27-year-old illegal immigrant from Guatemala.
No one can make heads or tails of the story because too many are using the story to their political benefit and are reluctant to get to the truth. The latest is the rapist might be a paramour to the victim's mother. Good grief!

Mark do you think Pakistan will admit the UK as a Pakistan dominion or will the UK sign an agreement to] give Pakistan status as was held by Hong Kong with all immigration and citizenship rights ? Might this also include airfare to the UK?

Happy to see that you have been broadcasting from the UK the last few weeks!! Really interesting shows with a great set of guests.
Picking up on one of the stories you covered a few weeks ago, did your baggage make it to you in a timely manner? Or did you choose to go with a carry-on bag only?

Mark, your My Way piece the other week took me back, way back, to 1967 and my favourite Sinatra Reprise album, the Sinatra Jobim collaboration.
Did any of Frank's cronies ever tell you why the 1969 follow-up was cancelled?
I know some of the tracks did eventually appear on a half pop, half bossa LP in 1971.
Do you think it was the shaky lyrics ("When I saw you first, the time was half past three/
When your eyes met mine it was eternity") or the incomparable Claus Ogerman's absence?

Picking up where Laura left off on her links - given what is happening in Sri Lanka, Ghana and Western Europe, is it time to ask the environmentalists/greens what the 'acceptable level of deaths' is to bring about their carbon-neutral utopia?

I see that Japan is reopening several nuclear power plants, despite their worries after Fukushima. Along with the amazing redefinition of what "green energy" is in the EU, maybe we should have a new term for climate friendly energy generation? Given the lovely glow from Cherenkov radiation in nuclear reactors, might Blue be the new Green?

That seems an appropriate song to close today's Q&A. I hope Mark is still recording wherever he might be, and that we get to listen to the recording later. Meanwhile, I better put my internet connection devices back in their usual spots.

Mark - Alas my connection says you are "off air", so I'll listen to the replay. Also - my (hastily worded) question you so kindly answered, had to deal with governments and corporations who are in it for the money, not the everyday men. However, these individuals arise out of our peerage, so something happens. The Biden family sold the US for power and wealth, and a host of the world leaders populated Epstein's client base. We need a spiritual revolution, and need to repent. We've tried everything else. Thanks so much for your contribution to things that are important and good.
