Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 12-18

This evening Mark will be launching the latest of his Tales for Our Time. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with the latest entry in Mark's anthology of video poetry - The Last of the Books by Alfred Noyes. By contrast, his Song of the Week marked the centenary of a man with a remarkable musical catalogue as performed by everyone from Sinatra and the Andrews Sisters to Whitesnake and the Stylistics.

~Mark's Monday Notebook found Steyn pondering the Duke of Edinburgh, the shifting goalposts of lockdown, and the squishiness of America's rock-ribbed conservatives.

~On Tuesday Mark addressed the latest phoney controversy, arising from his interview of Tucker Carlson on Fox News Primetime: it was our most read piece of the week.

~On Wednesday Steyn swung by the aforementioned Tucker's telly show to discuss Kamala crocheting as America burns.

Also on Wednesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from the ubiquity of infrastructure to racist fonts.

~On Thursday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Steyn Club members live around the planet on multiple topics from packing the US Supreme Court to withdrawing from Afghanistan - via wokeism as class marker. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Friday the weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show offered California's New Racism (no whites need apply), segregated funerals, northern guns, the unreal estate market, plus William McGonagall, D H Lawrence, Rodgers & Hammerstein, and another episode of The Hundred Years Ago Show - all with a strange Anglo-German regal thread running through the broadcast.

As Mark mentioned on the Steyn Show, he's written the introduction for Marc Morano's invaluable new book, Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal Is Even Worse Than You Think. It's available (personally autographed by Mark) direct from the Steyn bookstore, and also as part of a denialist double-bill with Mark's book "A Disgrace to the Profession": The World's Scientists - in Their Own Words - on Michael E Mann, His Hockey Stick and Their Damage to Science, Volume I.

~On Saturday, we continued our latest audio serialization of a book beloved by Steyn's readers, Mark Steyn's Passing Parade. This weekend, as the Duke of Edinburgh was laid to rest, Mark looked back a quarter-century to what was, in a turbulent week for the Royal house, a far more convulsive and destabilizing funeral, that of Diana, Princess of Wales.

For our weekend movie date Steyn revisited Don Siegel and the ever more timely Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Steyn's Sunday Poem and Mark Steyn's Passing Parade are special productions for The Mark Steyn Club. The Mark Steyn Club is not to everyone's taste, but we do have members in every corner of the world from Virginia to Vanuatu, and, if you have a chum who's a fan of classic poems on video or classic fiction in audio, we also offer a special gift membership.

A new week at SteynOnline begins this evening with Steyn's Song of the Week and continues with Mark's latest Tale for Our Time.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 5-11

Later this morning Mark will have another of his Sunday video poems for you - because, as he always says, video poetry is where the big bucks are.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

The week ended with the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, the longest serving Royal consort in history. Mark recalled his dinner with the Prince, admired a cinematic bon mot, and on Fox News Primetime mused on actual monarchy and a travesty republic.

~The week began with our traditional Easter observances sacred, secular, and incendiary. By contrast, his Song of the Week marked the ninetieth birthday of a lowdown hoochie-koocher.

~On Monday Steyn began a week of telly hosting on Fox News Primetime. Just ahead of that, he returned to The Rush Limbaugh Show to mull the latest machinations of Big Woke. Rush's Mr Snerdley joined Mark on that night's Fox show, on which Steyn rounded up the Covid coppers' war on Easter:

Also on Monday's show: Naomi Wolf on the Permanent Emergency, Douglas Murray on social-justice infrastructure, Lisa Boothe on a CBS hit job on Florida's governor, and Kat Timpf on the contrasting honors for dead policemen.

~Tuesday's Fox News Primetime began with Mark's monologue on the dissolved southern border and Dana Loesch's response. He also considered Biden's resurrection of Jim Crow and the Democrats' grisly racial condescension, and talked to the Alberta pastor who had the courage to face down the Covid coppers and throw them out of his church. The show ended with the Dog Whisperer himself offering advice for Joe Biden's snapping dog:

The big hit of the show was Steyn's own ten-week-old puppy Mabel, who made a brief appearance on camera. Here she is in the makeup chair before the show, getting ready for her television debut:

Also on Tuesday The Bachman Beat offered Tal Bachman's thoughts on getting to know the enemy.

~On Wednesday Mark began with the latest developments on Ashli Babbitt and Brian Sicknick and the collapsing narrative of January 6th. He also chewed over China's rise and America's eclipse with the one-and-only Newt:

~Thursday's Fox News Primetime opened with news of Biden and the Second Amendment and ended with the "toxic whiteness" of musical theatre. But it was Steyn's interview of Tucker Carlson that caused the leftie media the usual fit of the vapors:

Also on Thursday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from resisting the healthstapo to ChiCom showstoppers.

~Mark's final show of the week addressed the republic and the difficulties of "keeping it", the public healthification of everything, the execrable John Boehner's slur of Michele Bachmann (who'll be Steyn's shipmate on the Third Annual Mark Steyn Cruise), and a wrap on just another se'nnight in the wacky world of climate change:

As he mentioned above with Marc Morano, Steyn has written the introduction for Morano's brand new book, Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal Is Even Worse Than You Think. It's available (personally autographed by Mark) direct from the Steyn bookstore, and also as part of a denialist double-bill with Steyn's book "A Disgrace to the Profession": The World's Scientists - in Their Own Words - on Michael E Mann, His Hockey Stick and Their Damage to Science, Volume I.

~On Saturday, we continued our latest audio serialization of a book beloved by Steyn's readers, Mark Steyn's Passing Parade. This week Mark considered two Americans who, in very different ways, were incredibly reckless and partial to wild flying leaps - motorcycle stunt maestro Evel Knievel and Tonight Show host Jack Paar.

Steyn's Sunday Poem and Mark Steyn's Passing Parade are made possible by members of The Mark Steyn Club. The Mark Steyn Club is not to everyone's taste, but we do have members in every corner of the world from Virginia to Vanuatu, and, if you have a chum who's a fan of classic poems on video or classic fiction in audio, we also offer a special gift membership.

A new week at SteynOnline begins with Mark's latest video poem and continues this evening with Steyn's Song of the Week.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 29-April 4

Happy Easter and Passover to our Christian and Jewish readers around the world. We mark this Easter morn with Mel's blockbuster, with Victor Hugo amid the Easter bells, and with some muscular verse and sublime music on the Easter edition of The Mark Steyn Show. We shall have a very different kind of seasonal entertainment right here at SteynOnline in just a few hours' time.

Mark will be hosting Fox News Primetime live across America all this coming week at 7pm Eastern. We hope you'll tune in. Just ahead of Monday's show, Steyn will be checking in with Ken Matthews on The Rush Limbaugh Show, coast to coast at midday Eastern/9am Pacific.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with a teachable moment - and another omnibus edition of The Hundred Years Ago Show.

~Mark's Monday column started with the undeniable proposition that everything is getting real stupid real fast: it was our most read piece of the week.

~Tuesday's Mark Steyn Show brought news of boots on the ground, polls and politics, sales tax for policemen, China's checkmate, and much more. Plus Ronald Reagan at the Hilton Hotel, Teutonic testicles at the Albert Hall, and John Donne on the non-far horizon.

~On Wednesday Steyn swung by the Number One show in cable news to marvel at Justin in jackboots on America's northern border. You can watch that in full here.

Also on Wednesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from vaccine passports to the hug stasi.

~Mark's Thursday Notebook addressed the Reset jet set and Big Climate panic-porn.

On the latter theme, Steyn has written the introduction for Marc Morano's brand new book, Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal Is Even Worse Than You Think. It's available (personally autographed by Mark) direct from the Steyn bookstore, and also as part of a denialist double-bill with Mark's book "A Disgrace to the Profession": The World's Scientists - in Their Own Words - on Michael E Mann, His Hockey Stick and Their Damage to Science, Volume I.

~On Good Friday the Easter edition of The Mark Steyn Show presented some transcendent music and muscular poetry to mitigate the glum news from a Christendom in lockdown. There was also Chairman Xi's latest wheeze, and a touch of Henny Youngman.

~On Saturday, we continued our latest audio serialization - a book beloved by Steyn's readers, Mark Steyn's Passing Parade - with Mark's consideration of two broadcasting colossi, the urbane explainer of America to Britons and the maestro of jiggle TV.

The Mark Steyn Show and Mark Steyn's Passing Parade are made possible by members of The Mark Steyn Club. The Mark Steyn Club is not to everyone's taste, but we do have members in every corner of the world from Virginia to Vanuatu, and, if you have a chum who's a fan of classic poems on video or classic fiction in audio, we also offer a special gift membership.

A new week at SteynOnline begins later today with an Easter entertainment and continues this evening with Steyn's Song of the Week - and don't forget to join Mark on TV every evening all this week.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 22-28

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with a song for the season.

~Mark's Monday column noted an important development in Big Climate vanity litigant Michael E Mann's near decade-long defamation lawsuit against Steyn: it was our most read piece of the week - and Mark's smash-hit deposition by Mann's lawyer (taking the scenic route with Lindsay Lohan, the Prince of Montenegro and many others) wasn't far behind.

Steyn also marked the release of Marc Morano's brand new book, for which he's written the introduction: Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal Is Even Worse Than You Think. It's available (personally autographed by Mark) direct from the Steyn bookstore, and also as part of a denialist double-bill with Mark's book "A Disgrace to the Profession": The World's Scientists - in Their Own Words - on Michael E Mann, His Hockey Stick and Their Damage to Science, Volume I.

~On Tuesday Steyn joined Ben Carson, Peter Navarro, Kris Kobach and others for Michelle Bachmann's day-long conference on "election integrity" in America. You can see Mark's presentation and all the others here.

~On Wednesday Steyn swung by the Number One show in cable news to marvel at the resurrection of the Clinton Foundation for an especially audacious racket. Click below to watch:

Also on Wednesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from the wokestapo on the march to the latest electoral wackiness in Israel.

~On Thursday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Steyn Club members live around the planet on multiple topics from the Chinese Communist Party's impending hundredth birthday to NeverTrump bulwarks via BoJo's lost mojo. You can listen to the full show here.

Later Steyn made a rare Thursday appearance with Tucker to analyze Joe Biden's alleged "press" conference:

~On Friday the weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show brought pertinent news from America, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Czech Republic and beyond.

~On Saturday, we continued our latest audio serialization - a book beloved by Steyn's readers, Mark Steyn's Passing Parade - with Mark's consideration of the blockbuster career of Bob Hope.

Later, our weekend movie date remembered the screenwriting career of Larry McMurtry, from The Last Picture Show to Brokeback Mountain.

The Mark Steyn Show, Mark Steyn's Passing Parade and Clubland Q&A are made possible by members of The Mark Steyn Club.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 15-21

Happy Spring to our readers in the Northern Hemisphere, Happy Autumn to those in the Southern. This Tuesday, March 23rd, Steyn will be speaking at Michele Bachmann's conference on election integrity in the US. It's all on Zoom and starts at noon Eastern with Ben Carson, Kris Kobach and others, with Mark scheduled for 4pm. The event is open to all, at no charge, and you can find more information here.

From reader Lisa:

Q: What do you call someone who hates Steyn's weekly round-up?

A: An anti-Se'nnight.

Very true. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with a great song from a film now deemed "problematic".

~Steyn's Monday column looked at the Pentagon's strange new war on Tucker Carlson, and concluded it's likely to go the same as all of the Pentagon's other wars: It was our most read piece of the week.

~Tuesday's Mark Steyn Show brought news from Shanghai, Ottawa and more, as well as music for Daylight Savings Time, St Patrick's Day and love addicts. There was also a particularly blood-soaked episode of The Hundred Years Ago Show, and a touch of Flashman.

Later on Tuesday Mark joined the Number One show in cable news to mull the New Woke Segregation. Click below to watch:

~For St Patrick's Day Steyn offered the latest in his series of video poetry - because, as he always says, video poetry is where the big bucks are. In this case, he celebrated St Patrick with a poem about another of Ireland's patron saints - St Columba.

Also on Wednesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from racist hiking to demographic doom.

~Mark's Thursday Notebook reflected on where we were with the WuFlu one year ago, and (via the Markles and the Queen) where we'll be if America keeps exporting the Woke Flu around the world.

~On Friday came news that climate huckster Michael E Mann's defamation suit against National Review (like his defamation suit against Tim Ball) had been dismissed. The warm-monger's suit against Steyn remains ongoing. Mark will have more to say about this in the coming week.

The weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show brought another Chinese Penetration Update, another Brit Wanker Copper, and a grim milestone for the Durham Report. Mark also celebrated the bicentennial of Sir Richard Burton and a blockbuster hit for Artie Shaw.

~On Saturday, we continued our latest audio serialization - a book beloved by Steyn's readers, Mark Steyn's Passing Parade - with Mark's thoughts on Argentine strongman General Galtieri and Holy Roman pretender Otto von Habsburg.

Later, our weekend movie date continued our Richard Burton bicentennial observances with a curious brace of Burton motion pictures.

Happy Mothering Sunday to mums in various parts of the world from Belfast and Bognor Regis to Bauchi and Benin City. We have some music for the day here.

Mark will be here in a couple of hours with another of his Sunday Poems - because, as he always says, video poetry is where the big bucks are. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with Mark missing Australia, and finding consolation in a song to get him there.

~Mark's Monday Notebook found Steyn buried under news he has no interest in, like Meghan whining about not being taught to curtsey, and Pepe LePew being #MePewed, and Senator Hawley being attacked by his prom date, and on and on... It was our most read piece of the week.

~Tuesday's Mark Steyn Show offered an amazingly in-depth update on the eternally impending Durham Report - plus a Canadian clampdown on lockdown dissent, a poem for Royal love, yet another ChiCom decisive advantage, a brand new edition of The Hundred Years Ago Show, and one of the loveliest of ballads.

Later on Tuesday Mark joined the Number One show in cable to bring a reluctant Tucker up to speed on the virtues of constitutional monarchy.

~On Wednesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from the #MeTooing of the Luv Guv to Arab misgivings about the Biden Middle East.

~On Saturday, we continued our latest audio serialization - a book beloved by Steyn's readers, Mark Steyn's Passing Parade - with Mark's obituaries for James Callaghan and Eugene McCarthy.

Later, our weekend movie date celebrated Looney Tunes - before the wokesters decree "That's all, folks!"

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with Christopher Plummer and the last song Oscar Hammerstein II ever wrote.

~On Monday Steyn began a week of hosting duties on Fox News Primetime.
