Much has been written about Sam Brinton, but nowhere have I read anything about his qualifications to work with nuclear power or nuclear waste. "Progressives" claim they want rule by experts, but they are either lying or incapable of recognizing expertise. Your thoughts?

Since Hillary Clinton received the Comey defense strategy of lack of intention. The West has lost its proverbial shirt. I do not attribute the following events as accidental nor as unintentional. COVID-19, COVID-19 Vaccination fallout, Brittany Griner caught smuggling drugs into Russia. I see all "newsworthy" global events as intentional. As with natural disasters, it is obvious when they are not intentional.

Hi Mark, in the UK we're apparently on course for a Labour 'supermajority' at the next election. Given the utter useless of the Tories, I can believe it... How bad will it get under a Keir Starmer supermajority government - will it make the Blair government look moderate by comparison? More than all that though, will we ever get a serious government led by serious people, who deal with the entrenched problems in the country?

Hello Mark - hope you've rejoined the land if the living. Just wanted to tell you that I'm grateful for the work you do.
These last few years especially have been trying to say the least, and while I'm certainly not happy with the cultural decline displayed daily - I am certainly am grateful for being here to possibly be part of turning it around (or at least slowing it down!).
I am grateful for the blessings bestowed upon me, for my family and friends. Just feeling grateful today.
Merry Christmas everyone!

Mark, as others have already said, I do hope it's actually you today (though no disrespect to Mr. Lawton, who's been absolutely grand).
As for questions: What's your take on the Sinema/Tillis immigration bill that McConnell has now apparently stalled? I am seeing all manner of reactions -- strong positive ones from George Will and Gary Abernathy at WaPo, grim ones from other people at the same paper, gleeful ones (to its cancellation) from some on the right. To me it looks like a decent compromise, on an issue that has robustly refused compromise for decades.

And now for something that has nothing to do with today's news. One of the great joys of listening to your Q&A or GB News show is your liberal use of the word, "Totty." It's just wonderfully British and non-PC. With that in mind, given your extensive travels, what neighborhoods in the UK and Europe may proudly claim to have the best totty? Explore the space.
Perhaps you can enliven the beginning of your Clubland Q&A Shows by adding a rating of the totty in the cities you list on a scale of 1-10. "It's 9 pm in Rome where it well deserves its 9 on the Tottymeter. Le donne sono magnifiche! Lode a Dio per i pantaloni capri!" (translation: The women are gorgeous! Praise God for capri pants!) Perhaps Steyn Club members could reply to this question with ratings of their towns. It could be very informative for your club members. Enjoy.

Good afternoon Mark, it is so good to have you back. As you are no doubt aware, Netflix released the Harry and Megan fakeumentary and it is even worse than I thought. I noticed that the Royal Family are not taking the bait and not saying anything about it. They are acting in a mature and dignified manner and not giving the petulant Prince and Megan any reaction. Do you think this is a sign that King Charles has learned a thing or two from his late mother? I think Harry has really gone nuclear with this show and the upcoming book, irreparable damage has been done. Do you think King Charles will steer the ship (the Firm) steady in his mother's honour?

What are your thoughts on the rapid normalization of pedophilia? Rick Santorum used to say in the days when gay marriage was still up for "debate" that normalizing gay marriage would lead to the main streaming of pedophilia to many an eye roll. Now in 2022, Disney is openly pushing grooming behavior and the mainstream media are running with the narrative that those of us who raise objections are the real problem. It's become quite obvious we're not voting our way out of it and the wider public's outrage isn't forthcoming. What do we do?

Good to hear you again back on the air Mark. I'm not a bit surprised after you mentioned running over that bridge in London. If there is one thing I can't do with my Liver problem, I don't have the energy to over exert myself, nothing seems to work. It's easy to get stressed watching the news and everything else. Health conditions really puts life into sharp perspective.
I was wondering what format you prefer listening to your music, vinyl has made big comeback recently, it provides a lot of joy discovering that old music. It is a very nice way to relax.
Get well soon.

Welcome back, Mark! Canada has been in the news lately because of the rapid expansion of the Medical Assistance in Death program (MAiD). It is terrifying to me how many people have already taken the government up on their offer of euthanasia, and now they want to expand to children and even babies! How can we fight back against this horrible, anti-human program. You have quoted Margaret Thatcher many times about how there is nothing more permanent than a (temporary) government program. How can we get rid of this evil?
On December 16, 2022 at 3:26 pm, George Pereira wrote:
Why has MAID taken such hold of the deranged dominion? Who are the bureaucrats administering such an evil program? What kind of training? Do they get bonus money? Awards? Recognition from the Mammy Singer? What kind of reward could possibly convince a "normal" Canadian to become part of such monstrous and despicable evil? Where is the church?
On a more practical note, doesn't such a program cost more and use more resources than it would to simply give Canadians citizens the help they need?
Except for killing Canadians faster than the jab what is the point of such a "program"?

Welcome back!!!! Hope you are well, Mark. In an effort to find an explanation for the less-than-sterling mid-term results, quite a few well-known conservative pundits immediately started blaming Trump....and specifically referred to "Trump's picks," as if Trump personally went to each state, picked candidates out of a line-up, and told them personally to run for this or that office. Now, these same pundits, as well as quite a few in Republican leadership, are promoting "ballot harvesting" as the solution to our election woes. Their rationale seems to be: "Well, if the Democrats can have success with ballot harvesting, why can't we?" But, I tend to think the Democrat definition of ballot harvesting includes a bit more "creativity" than does the Republican plan of knocking on doors and making sure every Republican votes or hands in a completed ballot on the spot. Do we really want to make ballot harvesting a normal process in our elections? In such a system - i.e., where both sides have resorted to "ballot-harvesting," election results may not be known for months instead of weeks. I realize that election laws are controlled by the individual states, but the universal practice of ballot harvesting can only lead to more uncertainty of results, more delays, and more monkey-business. Am I wrong in this?

Mark, my best wishes for your continued recovery. I'm wondering if you saw the story of JK Rowling starting a shelter in Scotland for female (biological) victims of violence and abuse. The left has been outraged about it of course, but she has been steadfast in her support for women, biological reality and keeping predatory, creepy men out of women's spaces. Do you think anyone else with "F.You" money will get inspired by her and take her lead? Or is she sadly one of a kind right now? I forget who said 'what's the point of having F.U money if you don't tell people to F.U'.

Mark, Having experienced a number of cardiac events I can empathize with your current situation. It is great to hear your voice and will be praying for your well being. The subject I wish to address is this, many voices have been raised concerning the failure of the "asylum seekers" to assimilate. What, IMO, is being overlooked is that they believe all these benefits they are getting are theirs by right of being muslim. It is to them the jizyah. That which is owed to them by virtue of being muslim. Assimilation is not in their vocabulary. But dominance is.

Dear Mark, I am absolutely delighted that you are on the mend. I have a question regarding Qatar and the World Cup. At the beginning of the World Cup, an American sports journalist named Grant Wahl tried to enter a stadium with an LGBTQ rainbow jersey. Apparently he has a gay brother, so he did it for him, or something like that. He was stopped at the gate by security and told he could not wear it and a clip went viral all around the world. About a week ago he "died suddenly" at the World Cup of an aortal aneurism. His wife is a physician who has been all over media promoting the vaccine and multiple boosters. Do you think the boosters did him in or the Qataris or am I being paranoid about both?

Just as we were told that crime is tied into the racial identity of blacks and pointing it out makes you a racist, we're seeing the push to attribute pedophilia as being part of sexual identity in the LBGTQ+ community and pointing it out makes you a trans or a homophobe. Just as I don't think all blacks think that crime is what defines their people, I don't think trans or gays would like the title of pedophile to be tied into what they're all about or that even the topic of sexuality to be taught to young children. Do you see pushback from those within the community against this or is there too much fear over this?

The alleged crypto currency thief, Sam Bankman Fried, seemed only too willing to go in front of cameras and blab about the failings of FTX. Given the magnitude of the crime, this seemed odd that there weren't lawyers limiting or stopping him from being interviewed in the media. He didn't seem particularly bothered about what had happened to his clients' money. It's almost as is assured by someone that he is in little danger of prosecution and punishment. He doesn't strike me as someone who possesses the intellect, knowledge or experience for such an enterprise. Do you think that he may have been put up as the front man for a criminal enterprise operated by figures behind the scenes who made off with the billions of dollars? I'm wondering if there are those behind the scenes involved in this who have the connections and abilities to steer this useful idiot out of judicial harm's way.
