Welcome back to the "niche Canadian" hot seat and congratulations on surviving the Adriatic.
Is China becoming more free market oriented than the so called developed world and how do you react to the notion of the Chinese Communist Party being "an anchor for piece in the free world"?
Keep well Andrew and thoughts and prayers are with Mark for a full recovery.

Hi Andrew, greetings from beautiful toasty hot, big blue skies but
socialist state of New Mexico. I have a question and also am wondering about something that I think about almost every day now.
On the cruise stage conversation with Alexandra, Eva and Leilani I heard Mark say that the governments were behaving in a very uncivil way towards the people. From the people who are trying to let their voices be heard about a variety of issues during the last few years and subsequent crackdowns on their bank accounts like the truckers and Nigel Farage for speaking his mind to the crack down on a mix of free speech and religious liberties like the recent verdict on the minister in Canada to the father who was hauled off from his home in front of his wife and children for praying at an abortion center here, to the many lies and obfuscations the government tells the people daily, I wonder if we could characterize their behavior more as waging war on the people. How does the general population fight back with an all powerful government intent on destroying their own countries? I look at Venezuela and her good citizens never recovered their country and many are migrating here.
Thanks for stepping up with such excellent guest-hosting skills while Mark is on the mend. Please send all the warmest wishes to him from my husband and me in Southern New Mexico.

First, best wishes for a speedy recovery for Mr. Steyn.
Concerning the Trudeau intrusion into the Internet, are there any work arounds or bypasses? VPN for instance?

Best wishes for Mark's speedy recovery! Hi Andrew, what are your odds of Trudeau losing the next election and of the Conservative party getting a majority?

Do the Native Canadian Indians have special rights, or special status accorded their reservations, do you know? I just wondered how that squared with equality before the law, especially if it is race-based discrimination.

I see after an inquiry Anne Kelly of the Correctional Services is continuing their decision too move notorious killer and rapist Paul Bernardo to medium security. She says her heart goes out to the families of these victims but she and Trudeau are basically saying Chuck You Farley. Have you ever known a government so against the people's wishes and concerns?

Mark's bold reporting on the Rotherham grooming gangs never got the traction it should have, do you think the success of "Sound of Freedom" in the theaters will change things?
After reading about it in "The Prisoner of Windsor", I would like to suggest "Let's All Go to the Strand (Have a Banana)" for Steyn Song of the Week. Prayers for Mark's improved health.

The tale of Hunter Biden seems to be an excellent example of how there are two Americas living side by side--at least for now. It's exemplified by how their respective medias view Hunter Biden--either he is a victim of his vices watched over by his loving father, or a corrupt hack at the forefront of a crime syndicate bought and paid for by China. One side even excuses a grandfather ignoring his youngest grandchild. As a Canadian you are a little detached from it, do you think the two Americas can continue to live side by side? How do you view the two Americas?

Hi Andrew, Living in North East US in a Blue destroyed city (Phila) since 1950 - I was thrilled beyond measure to be on cruise with likeminded people. It was most gratifying, but am a bit white-knuckle about Mark's health. Please, may we have an update....and please convey to Mark that he is in our thoughts and prayers.

First a big "Thank You" to you, Mark, and all his special guests for making the cruise such an enjoyable experience. We enjoyed chatting with many of the celebrities and singing songs with Tal Bachman in 10 Forward, minus Whoopi Goldberg.
Last night I was dreaming of the next cruise in the Caribbean. This morning I woke up feeling uncomfortable in my own body. Perhaps my true identity might be better realized if I were outfitted with an eye patch, a hook, and a peg leg. Will these feelings pass after the cruise, or should I seek some pirate affirming care?
Best wishes for Mark's speedy recovery!

Andrew and fellow Club members, I was wondering if you heard Mike Pence's, "that's not my concern" line in response to Tucker Carlson's objection that funding the war in Ukraine focuses resources abroad while conditions at home are deteriorating and your thoughts on that. Did Mike Pence just sum up the uniparty platform in one sentence?

Andrew, Mary Harrington has criticized western men for their sympathy to the anti-feminist proclamations of the radical Islamist Taliban. Do you think that third wave feminism has indeed poisoned the well of western culture?

As a first time ever cruiser from Littlehampton, West Sussex (Mark even knew where it is), and a recent apostle of the great Mark Steyn's wisdom and wit I have to thank you all for a really enjoyable introduction to cruising when there are great speakers and an interesting itinerary.
My question hangs over from the Wed /Thursday sessions on the Oosterdam regarding the need for a return to Christian /Judaic beliefs over the 'self' identity currenly worshipped. I did want to ask the panel, particularly Eva just how she feels this can be cultivated when the Arch. of Canterbury, Mr Welby must be the wimpiest,wokest ineffectual leader of the Anglican Church ever and Dr Carey before a close second.
The vaccines seem to be killing off the bulk of the current churchgoers in the UK and not too many signs of the younger members of society being very inspired by Welby and co.
very very best wishes to Mark for a steady if slow recovery. It is a marathon and not a sprint and we want to be there at the Supreme court to cheer him on the finish line.

Hi Andrew, welcome to the hot seat. Are you familiar with Andrew Tate? I don't understand his appeal, he comes across as a dirtbag honestly, very slimy, plus he is a convert to Islam, which seems entirely opportunistic. Tucker did a 2 hour interview of him and I couldn't get a half hour into it. Many will disagree, I know. Yes, young men need direction but Jordan Peterson is a far better guide for them. Do you have any thoughts on him?

What do you make of Tucker's Twitter shows? The content is excellent, as always, but the set is terrible. Looks like he's broadcasting from his garden shed - in a suit and tie! They seem to be going for the wise old backwoodsman vibe, with the fly-fishing and clapperboard, but for that to work, Tucker would need to be in his old rocking chair, dressed in dungarees. In Fox you felt Tucker was in the thick of things in DC. Here, he seems on the periphery, stuck out in the sticks.
Plus, how come he can only manage ten minutes every now and again? Mark manages 5 shows a week while recovering from two heart-attacks! Tucker isn't exactly pushing himself, is he?. He needs to be broadcasting nightly, so we all get back in the Tucker habit - perhaps as a guest on Mark's show. .
