Today, Friday, I joined Neil Cavuto at Fox Business to talk about the ever more fevered Beltway machinations around the Trump/Russia story, and what it means for the President's agenda. Click below to watch:
~Earlier this week, the serial litigant and Big Climate enforcer Michael E Mann testified to Congress. James Delingpole points out his, ah, breezy way with the truth. You'll like this one. Opening paragraph:
Apart from being a tetchy, hotheaded, rude, bullying, cackhanded, ignorant, malevolent and embarrassingly useless excuse for a scientist, Professor Michael Mann – the guy behind the serially-discredited Hockey Stick – is also the most outrageous liar.
As you can tell, he's just warming up...
UPDATE: Indeed, he was. James Delingpole has a second piece on the excruciatingly fawning interview the BBC's James Rutherford gave Mann:
That was 16 years ago, since when the Hockey Stock has been discredited to the point where not even the IPCC quotes it in its reports. And where Mann's reputation has become so tarnished that Mark Steyn was able to compile and edit a 300-page book called A Disgrace To The Profession, consisting largely of distinguished scientists from around the world explaining in lavish detail how utterly flawed, bankrupt and worthless Michael Mann's climate science was.
"Misleading"; "Just bad science"; "Very erroneous conclusions"; "A crock of shit"; "Excuse me while I puke."
....just a few of things scientists had to say about Mann and his work.

~On a cheerier note, my old comrade from the first-night aisle seats, The Guardian's Michael Billington, has compiled a list of his Top Ten surefire showstoppers. I make a passing appearance with reference to Number Seven - although I'm inclined to agree with some of his readers that Sweet Charity's "Rhythm of Life" (or indeed "If My Friends Could See Me Now") should have been on the list.
The reminiscence of mine that Michael cities is from my book Broadway Babies Say Goodnight, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and, I'm delighted to say, is still in print. Personally autographed copies are exclusively available from the Steyn store.
~We have a brand new weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show coming up - and on Saturday I'll be with the great Judge Jeanine on Fox News. Hope you'll join me, for one or the other.
