Mark, apropos your recent post recalling Europeans as the sick men of Europe, I believe that American Democrats are the sick men of America. (Actually, they'd be sick anywhere, but I digress...) Is there a cure for such a lethal virus or is this simply one of those super-STDs you warned us about? I'd suggest truth serum for starters but the cockroaches of the deep state are surely immune. Can a two-party system function with only one loyal party? What's your prognosis? Thanks!

Mark, what is your expectation for Brexit? Will the demigods in Black robes allow it to occur? Have you had a chance to read Sidney Powell's "Licensed to Lie"? The corruption and evil within the DoJ is rampant. Will Barr be able to shovel out this stable?

I'm old enough to realize blackface was not appropriate growing up in the 80's how are folks like Trudeau, Northam and the other guy in VA (Sec of state I think) These guys can't even tell you how many times they put it on. What gives? Are they just out right racist or just figure they will get a free pass because because of the letter than follows their name?

Justin in blackface is embarrassing, of course, but shouldn't Canadians be more bothered by the way Trudeau and Scheer both invoked the police, to prevent questioning by the press, or anyone else, at carefully stage-managed election meetings?
Not that the rest of us have any reason to feel proud. An English tribunal criminalised the idea that male and female are biological fact, while the New York Times ran a piece entitled "Free Speech is Killing Us."
Or are we killing free speech?

Secretary of State Pompeo is in Macedonia today. Do you think he will or should interview local Content Farmers? Unrelated, but will you be booking Robert De Niro for a stand-up comedy appearance on the next Steyn Club cruise? I hear he has a limited but pithy range of material.

Hey Mark what do you make of AOC and the #EatMoreBabies thing? Does it matter if it was a prank or for real? Or is the real issue what condiments and garnishes to serve?

Hi Mark, I liked your comparison of Chirac and Jospin who ran on identical platforms -- both in favour of high taxes, high unemployment and high crime. Surely a great line for Mr Trump to use against his eventual 2020 opponent. I note in a recent column of Laura's that a Swedish professor has recommended cannibalism to control population growth. You probably know that in this advice he was almost 300 years behind Jonathan Swift, Dean of St Patrick's cathedral in Dublin. In 1729 Dean Swift published his suggestion that the Irish eat their own children, under the title 'A Modest Proposal'. Probably wisely, he published it anonymously.

The other night made me laugh when Joe Biden declared to Trump, "I'm not going anywhere". He also said, "We have to do more than beat Donald Trump. We have to beat him like a drum." Did he make a Freudian slip there and unknowingly endorse Pocahontas?
Also, Hillary has sure been making the media rounds lately. Do you think she's looking to swoop in after Biden gets the axe (no Pocahontas pun intended) to claim what Donald Trump, the Russians, Comey, the Macedonian Content Farmers, et al. stole from her?

Mark, what do you think about the thought that Nancy Pelosi is in the process of engineering a coup against the sitting president AND vice president of our country so she can make history as the first woman president of the United States?

Good day Mark,
Hoping you and your family are safe & well.
So much controversy around the globe am venturing to ask what I am missing.
Living in rural Northumberland, my day started getting my fingers oily fixing a ( 9 ? ) year olds bike chain back on the cogs,
This was followed by helping the "local" Phillipino" fishermen ( who've doubled the attendance at our parish RC church) in remmitting their hard earned cash from trawing the North Sea, to paying out a 96 year old spinster who served in Churchill's War Room.
I appreciate I'm in an isolated spot of Christendom but we do have a Syrian refugee family who's experienes in Syria under ISIS ( they are also attenders of our local RC church ) one hesitates to ask about.
Hopefully as their language skills / confidence increases they will feel comfortable to confide in their new neighbours.
Best to all MS followers, keep up the great work & dont visit UK without coming to Northumberland, the real heart of England.

Good evening from Oxford, England. I think you are a New Hampshire man these days Mark and I'd like a bit of advice on an upcoming trip to see the fall foliage around your way.
I've written on travel for various national newspapers so am used to making my way as a lone woman traveller. But the world has changed and these days I'm a lone woman traveller with the wrong views. It's bad enough being the only leaver in my part of Oxford.
Will I find myself in your neck of the woods being the only person who thinks that Trump is not that bad? Are there some charming towns, neighbourhoods where the sugar maples aren't the only bit of red in the landscape?
I'd like to have a coffee or glass of good wine, some good conversation and not have to defend my ideas to the usual TDS and BDS sufferers. Any suggestions?

Thank you for answering my question in your last mailbox segment about the injustice done to Cardinal George Pell by the Victorian judicial system. It turns out now that two witnesses (both women) who claimed that the claimed abuse could not have happened as they would have noticed any activity in the Sacristy, weren't asked by Victoria Police to testify in his trial.
Fittingly enough, courts in Australia really have become kangaroo courts now, having locked away Pell on scant evidence, while allowing actual criminals to run rampant after getting a slap on the wrist.
Thank you for analysing the case on the actual technical points, and noting that the result was not beyond reasonable doubt. Recently, some cases of clerical abuse judged by courts throughout the world were found to be wrong. I hope and pray that Cardinal Pell, the bishop who confirmed me, will be rightfully exonerated.

What happens to Britain when it comes to revolution? The Brits have no history or experience with revolution... real serious revolution. Repression of revolutions is a bit more their experience but I see from this side of the Atlantic they should maybe consider the frailty of their existence.
Brexit is dead as I see it. Poor babes have been screwed and they will live with it like it or not. A deal pending is nothing more than extension of time for another 4 years when and at that end nobody will remember why Brexit occurred, will shrug at the thought, wearily shuffle on and Brtian will be no more.
We will be next but my history teaches me how to conduct real serious revolution.
