Prior to the current mania in hospitals, schools and elsewhere to push "gender affirming" surgery, there was just a few years ago a rush of legislation in Leftist states to ban "conversion therapy", where gay, Bi and lesbian citizens – mostly adults and middle aged people – sought to lead heterosexual lifestyles for the purposes of other life goals, or to save their marriages. But such treatment was banned under the theory that even middle-aged people were being coerced by others for nefarious purposes, and that the unwitting patient was being harmed by the practice despite it including no surgical, hormonal or pharmaceutical elements. It is largely within these same states and cities that banned conversion therapy that now push – via coercive measures in schools and hospitals – the irreversible measures of bodily mutilation on primarily adolescents. If conversion therapy is dangerous and must be banned, how on earth is "gender affirming care" not 100x as dangerous?

You used to say that if we're not talking about China, then we're not talking about anything serious. However, hasn't that shifted with the threat of World War III and concurrent global thermonuclear war now hanging over our heads? That is, as a more immediate matter, if we're serious now, shouldn't we be talking about how to avoid "It's the end of the world as we know it."?
Even the moth-eaten, sock-puppet, husk of a President that we have, yesterday mentioned that the risk of nuclear Armageddon is at the highest level since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis...at a fundraiser for the Democrats attended by the rich and famous. So, we know he's serious!
Biden went on to say that his administration is trying to "figure out" a solution. What a comfort!
I also feel reassured knowing that the US government is no longer just shoveling more borrowed money at Ukraine, but also "investing" in the latest anti-radiation sickness meds! Will there be a mandate for taking these, I wonder? Will "equity" require that they first be given to the "People of Color Survivors of the Apocalypse", or has Kanye perhaps struck a note that "White Lives Matter" too?
Elon Musk also talked about the war in Ukraine this week, and he had a novel idea: How about we actually consider input from the folks that live in the Donbas, Crimea, and other affected areas? Sounds like a great idea to me, but what say you?
By the way: What happened to the Left? They used to be all "Give peace a chance", "It's 1-2-3 what are we fighting for?", and "I ain't no senator's son", but that's all gone it seems.
Interestingly, the "1-2-3" song even got an update some years ago for the Iraq War, but not for today's Ukraine Armageddon it seems. So, I humbly offer:
And it's 1-2-3, what are we fighting for?
Don't ask me, I'm diving 'neath my desk
As the nukes fall 'round Donetsk!
As a child, I remember "nuclear preparedness" drills in elementary school where we were taught to take cover under our desks. Did you have such drills in Canada? If not, then I suggest you start practicing your "dive for cover" now so you develop good muscle memory for when you'll need it...possibly real darn soon.
5-6-7 Open up the pearly gates
It ain't no time to wonder why
Yippee! We're all going to die!
The state of the world these days leaves me constantly asking, "What the F is going on? Have we all lost our minds?"

Hi Mark. Please slow down on all of your content. I cannot keep up! With these FBI armed raids for non-violent "offenses", how long before someone decides they're not going willingly and someone is hurt? And will the "media" say this confirms all the claims of the prevalence of white supremacist domestic terrorists?

Do you feel if Ukraine had honored the Minsk accords we would not have the problems we see now. Why do you feel they ignored those treaties in 2014 and 2015 to allow the Donbas (spelling possibly wrong) and other primarily Russian provinces to vote on whether to remain in Ukraine?
Keep up your fantastic work.

Mark, think it's fairly obvious that the impending Hunter Biden indictment is a not so gentle message to the moth eaten sock puppet that he not seek a second term. Any Republican salivating over this is beyond clueless as the point is to get rid of the guy who is polling with worse popularity than monkeypox or Piers Morgan with a candidate who the Dems can drag over the finish line.

Mark, and fellow Club members, we made it another week without our elites blundering us into a nuclear war! I believe that's cause for celebration. What are your thoughts on David Petraeus making a public appearance on ABC. Wasn't he disgraced when he shared classified information with his mistress? How is it so many of our elites slither their way back to prominence after career ending scandals?

One other point about the WEF made in another article written by Mary Villareal was that the WEF sees people as cattle that should consume fewer resources.

Mark - What do you make of Eric Adams declaring a state of emergency for the migrants that have been transported to NYC from Texas? They are a sanctuary city. Shouldn't they have been ready to take anyone that wanted to be there? Or is there a different definition for Sanctuary City when people start to really take advantage of it?

Grateful as I am that you keep giving me a shout-out over specifying the date of your fantastic Q&As, I have made another request repeatedly:
Could you please invite Alex Expstein on your GB News Mark Steyn Show to talk about global-warm-mongering. He is a fantastically articulate explainer of the real facts, truths, distortions and lies surrounding the subject and I am sure you and he will hit it off famously.
Since I first asked you several week ago, both Dan Wootten and Darren Grimes have had him on. So don't get left behind!
With best wishes,
