Last night I kept my regular Monday date on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to discuss two subjects - Michael Avenatti's touching faith in the federal justice system, and the upcoming Filipino-Canadian war. On the latter Filipino President Duterte has been beating the drums of war because Canada dumped a bazillion tons of "recyclables" on the dock in Manila which, upon inspection, turned out to be filled adult diapers. Used Canadian adult diapers can, in fact, be usefully recycled into Beto O'Rourke campaign videos, but Duterte is threatening to lay waste to Canada unless Canada takes back its waste.
You can laugh, but to today's elites recycling is at least as important as the Archduke Franz Ferdinand was in 1914, and we know how that worked out. Click below to watch:
If you prefer me in non-visual formats, as many do, I'll be back this evening with the latest episode of our current Tale for Our Time - The Island of Dr Moreau. And tomorrow, Wednesday afternoon, I'll be joining the great John Oakley on Toronto's Global News Radio 640 live at 5pm Eastern.
Last month we officially announced the Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise, following our 2018 sell-out maiden voyage. On September 4th, we'll be sailing from Vancouver through Alaska's Inside Passage to Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay and Ketchikan. Cabins are going spectacularly fast - and we're very nearly sold out. If your preferred accommodations are showing up online as unavailable, do call Cindy, our excellent cruise manager, and she might be able to pull a few strings: If you're dialing from beyond North America, it's +1 (770) 952-1959; if you're calling from Canada or the US, it's 1-800-707-1634. Or you can email your query here.
Next week marks the second birthday of The Mark Steyn Club, and we have some special observances planned. So, if you've been thinking about signing up, we'd love to have you along for our third year: you can find more details about the Club here - and, if you've a chum who'd enjoy our audio fiction, video poetry and much more, don't forget our special Gift Membership.
