Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, September 13-19

In recent days the American press has been much exercised by the fact that the Washington Generals, as the final act of a lost war, droned ten innocent members of one Afghan family. Steyn mentioned this appalling act three weeks ago, and it is strange and disturbing that it has taken so long for the US media to catch up to what was known to the rest of the world at the end of August.

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

~The week began with the pathetic anniversary observances for 9/11. For the latest in his series of video poetry, Steyn presented some verses for an Afghan humiliation. By way of contrast, he offered a song of unabashed love of America.

~On Monday Mark considered perhaps the absolute low point of the twentieth anniversary: the speech in Pennsylvania by George W Bush. It was our most read piece of the week.

~On Tuesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from scientists colluding with the ChiComs to Danes liberated from lockdown.

~In the early hours of Wednesday it emerged that Californians had decided to double down on Governor Newsom and that the GOP recall had gone nowhere.

~On Thursday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on multiple aspects of the post-American world. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Friday Tal Bachman published a further exploration of the roots of our ongoing trans insanity.

~The weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show featured a blockbuster Durham Report Watch Update!, plus a brand new Hundred Years Ago Show, Last Call and Mark's Mailbox.

~On Saturday our continuing audio serialization of Mark Steyn's Passing Parade celebrated two victims of the 9/11 era - Hollywood's most successful Arab-American, Moustapha Akkad, and a fearless woman who hurled her chador at the Ayatollah Khomeini, Oriana Fallaci.

For our weekend movie date, Rick McGinnis picked Douglas Sirk's farewell to Hollywood, Imitation of Life.

The Mark Steyn Show 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.

The war on terror has ended in shambles and shame, and the global humiliation of a fallen superpower. There is no better book on the war's first year, and the lack of strategic clarity that eventually spelt doom, than Steyn's The Face of the Tiger.

A new week at SteynOnline begins later today with our Song of the Week. Don't forget that Steyn's Song of the Week now airs every Sunday on Serenade Radio in the UK at 5.30pm London time - that's 12.30pm North American Eastern.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, September 6-12

On this anniversary weekend of 9/11, Mark will be here later today with a poem and a song on different aspects of our lost war. His column for this wretched and humiliating milestone was unsparing.

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

~The week began with a song about going everywhere by someone from a country where you're not allowed to go anywhere.

~The Labor Day/Labour Day edition of The Mark Steyn Show featured a brand new instalment of The Hundred Years Ago Show with a snapshot of the incendiary holiday weekend of 1921, plus some thoughts on work and purpose from Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Merle Travis, and Mark himself.

~On Tuesday Steyn's column dwelt on "the subterranean conversation" and all the things our public discourse will not permit: it was our most read piece of the week.

Also on Tuesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from the Duchess of Woke to a land without dancing (no, not Afghanistan).

~On Wednesday Mark's Midweek Notebook featured Fauci batting a thousand and the wide range of bearded mullahs in Kabul's new inclusive government.

~On Thursday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on multiple aspects of the new post-American world. You can listen to the full show here.

Also on Thursday, Mark concluded his series looking back to the strange preoccupations of the weeks before 9/11.

~On Friday Tal Bachman posted the latest instalment of his exploration of our transgenderist madness.

~On Saturday our continuing audio serialization of Mark Steyn's Passing Parade celebrated two reclusive types - one who used it to great profit and advantage, the other who fell into the hands of jihadist head-hackers.

For our weekend movie date, Rick McGinnis recalled the film-makers on the ground in Lower Manhattan on 9/11.

The war on terror has ended in shambles and shame, and the global humiliation of a fallen superpower. There is no better book on the war's first year, and the lack of strategic clarity that eventually spelt doom, than Steyn's The Face of the Tiger.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 30-September 5

Happy Labor Day/Labour Day weekend to our American and Canadian readers. As the War on Terror ends in a Taliban victory, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with Hurricane Ida making landfall and Steyn wondering whether you know what it means to miss being way down yonder in New Orleans.

Meanwhile, on The Hundred Years Ago Show a mighty technologically advanced army got humiliated by Islamic tribesmen.

~Mark's Monday column found a lesson from Chesterton for a flailing superpower: From the Pentagon to kindergarten, the dead things are going with the flow.

~On Tuesday Steyn joined India Upfront with Rahul Shivshankar to debate the end of the American moment.

Also on Tuesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from Covid flip-floppers to Taliban trolls.

~On Wednesday Steyn noted Joe Biden's new fan club and America's retreat from the world: it was our most read piece of the week.

~On Thursday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Steyn Club members live around the planet on multiple aspects of the strange new post-American world. You can listen to the full show here.

Also on Thursday, he continued his series looking back to the long, lazy, languorous holiday from history that was the Summer of '01.

~On Friday Tal Bachman posted the latest instalment of his exploration of transgender insanity and its roots.

Mark's weekend column noted the weird complacency of America's supposed conservative leaders and media.

~On Saturday, our continuing audio serialization of Mark Steyn's Passing Parade celebrated two very different chroniclers of our time - a high-society social animal and a satirist who lived long enough to see his most fantastical jokes come horribly true.

For our weekend movie date, Rick McGinnis considered the Lubitsch touch.

The war on terror has ended in shambles and shame, and the global humiliation of a fallen superpower. There is no better book on the war's first year, and the lack of strategic clarity that eventually spelt doom, than Steyn's The Face of the Tiger.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 23-29

As the Taliban try out their new American uniforms and vehicles (right), here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with the meltdown of a superpower.

On a lighter note than total geopolitical humiliation, Steyn's Song of the Week found romance on its menu.

~On Monday Mark joined Jesse Watters on Fox News Primetime to consider politics in an age when even our leaders' pets are fake. Click below to watch:

Also on Monday Mark remembered Rush Limbaugh, whose absence we feel particularly at this wretched time. Click below to hear Steyn, Megyn Kelly, Rudy Giuliani and others on "the big voice on the right":

~On Tuesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from the last Jew in Afghanistan to Australia's reversion to penal colony.

~Mark's Midweek Notebook pondered a weird moment from The Tonight Show and other aspects of profound cultural sickness.

~On Thursday, as the suicide bombers self-detonated in Kabul, Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Steyn Club members live around the planet on multiple topics from the ignoble end of the 9/11 era to the contours of the new Chinese imperium. You can listen to the full show here.

~Mark's Friday column saluted the "utmost courage" amid the decrepitude of American leadership.

~On Saturday, our continuing audio serialization of Mark Steyn's Passing Parade considered Slipper of the Yard, the last London detective to be so styled, and a very overrated American playwright.

For our weekend movie date, Rick McGinnis featured a director in exile's take on a president in exile.

~Our marquee presentation was the conclusion of Mark's latest Tale for Our Time - Burning Daylight, Jack London's full-length novel sweeping down from the Yukon in the Gold Rush to San Francisco in the Gilded Age, and finding love along the way. Click for Part Forty-Three, Part Forty-Four, Part Forty-Five and the grand conclusion - or, for a good old binge-listen, go here. A new Tale for Our Time begins in September.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 16-22

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

~The week began with the fall of Kabul: the global superpower took twenty years to transfer Afghanistan from the Taliban to the Taliban ...but with even more territory than they had before. Mark's analysis was our most read piece of the se'nnight.

On a lighter note than total geopolitical humiliation, Steyn's Song of the Week harkened back to a more confident and cocksure America.

~On Monday Tucker Carlson interviewed Mark for a full hour.

~On Tuesday the fallen hegemon still couldn't stop digging.

Later Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from the new more "inclusive" Taliban to the racism of curry.

~On Wednesday Steyn noted the sly wit of the Taliban pressers, and what it tells us.

~Mark's Thursday Notebook pondered the politics of fiasco.

He also continued his summer season looking back at the month before 9/11, evoking the lazy languor of America's "holiday from history".

~On Friday, in his ongoing series, Tal Bachman dug deeper into the dark roots of ideological transgenderism.

~On the weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show Mark tried, unsuccessfully, to conceal his contempt for the Potemtagon, the State Department and other organs of the United States Government - and gave the full showstopper treatment to beribboned general Thoroughly Modern Milley. There was also a Commonwealth Wanker Copper of the Day and another Hundred Years Ago Show, in which a government manages to collapse in six days and Muslims demand instant infidel conversion. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Saturday, our continuing audio serialization of Mark Steyn's Passing Parade contrasted two generations of minor pop celebrity.

For our weekend movie date, Rick McGinnis featured one of Steyn's favorite actresses, Dorothy Malone (along with the uncle of Rush's longtime chief of staff Kit Carson - Jack Carson).

~Our marquee presentation was Mark's latest Tale for Our Time - Burning Daylight, Jack London's full-length novel sweeping down from the Yukon in the Gold Rush to San Francisco in the Gilded Age, and finding love along the way.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 9-15

The helicopters get larger and more expensive, the rooftops are mostly the same: This Sunday the United States is fleeing an Afghanistan in which the Taliban now control more territory than they did when America invaded twenty years ago. The total implosion of the lavishly funded so-called Afghan National Army was a complete surprise to no one but the corrupt and mendacious Pentagon and its wretched, flailing spokesmen. Steyn addressed the fall of Kabul on the weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show, and will have more to say later today.

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

~The week began with a magical night in Alabama and a Last Call special, beginning and ending with personal reminiscences from Steyn on the Duke of Edinburgh and Rush Limbaugh.

~Mark's Monday Notebook considered the tightening screws of the New Normal, the joke wargaming of conflict with China, and three minutes of pure joy: it was our most read piece of the week.

~On Tuesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from suicidal "influencers" to Minnesota decapitators.

~Wednesday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show started with a case of the sh*t hitting the lockdown fan, and proceeded via Assange and Cuomo to the comparative corruptions along the Potomac and the Danube. But Mark kept smiling through.... You can listen to the full show here.

Later, Steyn swung by Tucker Carlson Tonight to ponder the pitiful squibs of recovering Cuomosexuals. Click below to watch:

~On Thursday, Mark continued his summer series looking back at the month before 9/11, with a consideration of kooky racial obsessives then and now.

~On Friday, in his ongoing series, Tal Bachman delved deeper into the dark legacy of a pioneer transgenderist.

~On Saturday, our continuing audio serialization of Mark Steyn's Passing Parade profiled two very different women, and the men that got away.

For our weekend movie date, Rick McGinnis considered Mitchum, MacLaine and Robert Wise's screen version of Two for the Seesaw.

~Our marquee presentation was Mark's latest Tale for Our Time - Burning Daylight, Jack London's full-length novel sweeping down from the Yukon in the Gold Rush to San Francisco in the Gilded Age, with this week an audacious plan to build Paradise in Oakland. Click for Part Twenty-Nine, Part Thirty, Part Thirty-One, Thirty-Two, Thirty-Three, Thirty-Four and Part Thirty-Five. Part Thirty-Six airs tonight.

Mark has 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 Steyn) direct from the Steyn bookstore, and also as part of a dynamite denialist double-bill.

~On Tuesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet and played another round of Fauci vs Fauci.

~The live Wednesday edition of The Mark Steyn Show was another double-Covid mutation variant combining our Clubland Q&A with favorite Steyn Show features such as Your Oz Wanker Copper of the Day.
