Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, January 20-26

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

The allegedly big news of the week was impeachment. Last time round, Monica Lewinsky checked into Steyn's hotel (see right). This time Mark checked out.

~The week began with a song for Megxit.

~On Monday Mark bade avete atque valete to January's grim toll, including the greatest conservative philosopher of our time, a viceregal gag machine, and one brief combing moment.

~Tuesday's edition of Mark's Mailbox found Steyn considering everything from alternatives to imperialism to Justin Trudeau's Beard of Gravitas. Click below to watch:

Mark's Mailbox is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Steyn Club, see here.

~On Wednesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from stoner drivers to the perils of soy.

~Mark's Thursday Notebook had an impeachment tip for President Trump, as well as a dolly who dangles and a very telling story from The New York Times: it was our most read piece of the week.

He also revisited an in-depth interview with the man who waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Dr James E Mitchell:

~On Friday our marquee presentation was our latest Tale for Our Time - and with a special video bonus to boot. Before an audience of Mark Steyn Cruisers from four continents, Mark introduced and read Jack London's classic The White Silence. You can find Part One here, and Part Two here.

Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. As you can see, it's one of several SteynOnline features we also do live and on water on Mark's annual cruises. We're thrilled that so many have already signed up for next year's Third Mark Steyn Cruise, with Michele Bachmann, Conrad Black, John O'Sullivan, Douglas Murray and more. But, if you're thinking about it, or perhaps have it in mind as a treat for your beloved spouse, please don't leave it too late: a couple of stateroom categories have already sold out. For more information, call +1 (770) 952-1959 if you're dialing from beyond North America - and, if you're calling from Canada or the US, it's 1-800-707-1634. Or you can email your query here.

~On Saturday Kathy Shaidle's weekly movie date was Hitchcock's Rope.

If you enjoy Mark's Mailbox and our other content, do give a thought to The Mark Steyn Club. It's not for everyone, but we do have members in every corner of the world from Virginia to Vanuatu, and we also have a special gift membership.

A new week of print, audio and video delights at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, January 13-19

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

~The week began with the first Number One hit of the Seventies, as well as a brand new entry in Steyn's Sunday Poems - Mark's reading of a hard, unsparing piece by the Bard of the Yukon: The Low-Down White.

Steyn's Sunday Poem is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see here.

~On Monday Mark started the day on America's Number One radio show and ended it on America's Number Two cable show. Impeachment dominated the week, but a throwaway aside by Steyn on the vanished diversity of the Democrat presidential field prompted a fit of the vapors from Media Matters to Italy's leading gay publication.

Later Mark joined Tucker Carlson for more Megxit. Click below to watch:

In the imperial metropolis both The Daily Mail and The Sun picked up on Steyn's comments.

~Tuesday found Mark back on the radio on the eve of a snoozeroo primary debate. Later that day Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from the world's oldest Olympic medalist to Bernie Sanders haute couture.

~On Wednesday Steyn did double-duty on the radio, north and south of the border. First, he interviewed Congressman Steve Chabot, as one old impeachment hand to another. Click below to listen:

Next Mark joined John Oakley in Toronto to marvel at how the Royal Family wound up more diverse than the Democrat debate or the Oscar nominations:

In between, Steyn recalled a Trumpian night in Berniestan: it was our most read piece of the week.

~On Thursday's "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark addressed the big political pile-on of the week - Elizabeth Warren and CNN and the DNC vs Bernie Sanders:

~On Friday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on a range of topics from impeachment to the reconfiguration of humanity - via an Australian horn player's sister who married the forty-sixth in line to the throne. You can listen to the full show here. Clubland Q&A is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club.

~On Saturday Kathy Shaidle's weekly movie date went falling down with Michael Douglas.

Many of our regular features, including Steyn's Sunday Poem, The Mark Steyn Show and Steyn's Song of the Week, we also do live and on water on Mark's annual cruises. We're thrilled that so many have already signed up for next year's Third Mark Steyn Cruise, with Michele Bachmann, Conrad Black, Douglas Murray and more.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, January 6-12

Later this morning Mark will present another entry in his weekend anthology of video poetry. Tomorrow, Monday, he'll be guest-hosting America's Number One radio show.

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

~The week began with Mark's annual Twelfth Night music special featuring live Steyn Show performances over the years - from Peter Noone & Herman's Hermits, Gwen Verdon, Randy Bachman, Patsy Gallant, Kander & Ebb, Liza Minnelli, Loudon Wainwright III and more.

~On Monday Mark coughed up a C-note to Bryan Caplan in a lost Brexit bet from 2008. It was our most read piece of the week.

Later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson on the telly for some jollier news: Ricky Gervais' Golden Globes speech. Click below to watch:

~Tuesday was the fifth anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Mark pronounced it a grim half-decade for free speech - and reprised his anger from those first twenty-four hours. Here he is in January 2015 with Megyn Kelly:

Later on Tuesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from General Soleimani resting in pieces to Justin Trudeau's Beard of Gravitas.

~On Wednesday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on a range of topics from Iran and the Ukrainian Airways crash to Harry's Megxit and Michelle Williams' Award for Best Acceptance Speech About Abortion. You can listen to the full show here.

Clubland Q&A is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see here.

~On Thursday's "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark addressed the decision of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to quit the Royal Family in order to spend more time with their self-absorption:

Steyn returned to the subject the following morning on Friday's "Fox & Friends".

~Mark ended the week guest-hosting America's Number Two cable show and covering impeachment, Iran and much more. Here's how the show began:

You can see the full hour with Steyn on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" here.

~On Saturday Kathy Shaidle's weekly movie column was all about All About Eve.

Many of our regular features, including Tales for Our Time, The Mark Steyn Show and Steyn's Song of the Week, we also do live and on water on Mark's annual cruises.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, December 30-January 5

Welcome to 2020. Please spare a thought for our friends in south-eastern Australia, who continue to face almighty conflagrations now exacerbated by the winds. It is a terrible start to the New Year, and seems likely to get worse before it gets better. We are heartened to hear from readers in Victoria and New South Wales that they are safe, and hope to return to their homes very soon.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last and first days of the year looked to Mark:

~The week began with the end of a grim Hanukkah of daily attacks on New York Jews that culminated in multiple stabbings at a rabbi's house. Steyn's column on the gulf between Democrat pap and cold reality was our most read piece of the week.

~On Monday Mark guest-hosted the final "Tucker Carlson Tonight" of 2019. It included a follow-up on the spike in Jew hate with Deroy Murdock. Click below to watch:

Later Colonel Douglas Macgregor joined Steyn to chew over the latest US airstrikes in Iraq:

Mark's guest-hosting was a ratings bonanza - the Number One show in the critical 25-54 demo, the Number Two show in cable news, and the Number Five show in all cable, just behind the college football. You can watch the full hour here.

~On New Year's Eve Steyn bade farewell to those we lost in 2019, from congressmen to conductors to caliphs. A late addition to the roll call was a Broadway survivor, Jerry Herman, writer of "Hello, Dolly!"

~On New Year's Day Mark greeted the dawn of the 2020s with a look back at other consequential turns of the calendar, and at some of the most important stories of recent years.

~Thursday's edition of Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from Notre Dame's billion-dollar coin toss to San Franfeces' ban on disposable cups.

~Mark ended the week guest-hosting America's Number One radio show. You can find a few moments from Thursday's show here, and a few moments from Friday's here. The big news on the latter day was the unexpected droning of General Soleimani. In his weekend column Steyn contrasted Soleimani's fate with the one that got away.

~On Saturday Kathy Shaidle's weekly movie date was Leo McCarey's Make Way for Tomorrow.

Much of what we do here each month is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see here.

Many of our regular features, including Tales for Our Time, The Mark Steyn Show and Steyn's Song of the Week, we also do live and on water on Mark's annual cruises. We're thrilled that so many have already signed up for next year's Third Mark Steyn Cruise, with Michele Bachmann, Conrad Black, Douglas Murray and more. But, if you're thinking about it, or perhaps have it in mind as a tardy Christmas present for an especially loved one, please don't leave it too late. For more information, call +1 (770) 952-1959 if you're dialing from beyond North America - and, if you're calling from Canada or the US, it's 1-800-707-1634. Or you can email your query here.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, December 23-29

We hope you had a blessed and peaceful Christmas week and/or Hanukkah. In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~A se'nnight of Yuletide festivities began with this year's edition of The Mark Steyn Christmas Show - a cavalcade of great guests, terrific music and triggering comedy sketches. Click below to watch:

After the attempted litigation and mediation of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" above, Steyn felt he owed the song a proper consideration.

~Mark's Monday Notebook rounded up Boris' Hanukkah greeting, the curious state of the Trump impeachment, and the holiday plans of Vogue editors: it was our most read piece of the week.

Later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to consider the Bernie bros' plans to convert their parents and grandparents over Christmas dinner.

~On Christmas Eve Mark guest-hosted America's Number One radio show, but figured the listeners had the best lines of the day.

With the midnight clear approaching, Steyn always reads a few seasonal tales - not just Dickens and L M Montgomery but Jack London with a brace of corkers about Christmas in the Klondike. You can enjoy them in the Yuletide after-glow with a grand old post-Boxing Day binge-listen. Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see here.

~On Christmas Day Mark presented his traditional Christmas cornucopia.

~On Boxing Day Steyn was out and about bright and early to join "Fox & Friends" and up late to guest-host "Tucker Carlson Tonight". The latter started with the stalled impeachment...

...and concluded with the Democrats' one-time dream candidate:

It was a Boxing Day bonanza for Mark ratings-wise - the Number One show in cable news, and the Number Two show in all cable. You can watch the full hour here.

In between the curvy couch and the anchor desk came Laura's Links, in which Laura Rosen Cohen rounded up the best of the Internet from Baby Yoda-clad newborns to government-funded trans-strippers.

~On Friday Steyn returned to primetime for another hour on Tucker's show. The lineup included not only the top cable-news quiz show Final Exam but a couple of culture-war stories. It seems Mrs Doubtfire is transphobic...

...and Little Women is too white:

You can watch the full hour here.

~On Saturday Kathy Shaidle's movie column presented a double-bill starring two memorable actresses we lost in 2019, Édith Scob and Virginia Leith.

Much of what we do here each month, including Tales for Our Time, The Mark Steyn Show and Steyn's Song of the Week, we also do live and on water on Mark's annual cruises. We're thrilled that so many have already signed up for next year's Third Mark Steyn Cruise, with Michele Bachmann, Conrad Black, Douglas Murray and more. But, if you're thinking about it, or perhaps have it in mind as a tardy Christmas present for an especially loved one, please don't leave it too late.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, December 16-22

We're counting down to Christmas at SteynOnline with an array of last-minute gift ideas among our Steynamite Yuletide Specials - as well as a gift that lasts all year, and a gift that's once in a lifetime. Plus we have a plethora of festive pleasures for you right up to Christmas morn, from Tales for Our Time to Song of the Week to The Mark Steyn Christmas Show.

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

~The week began with an eightieth birthday celebration of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

~Mark's Monday Notebook looked at loser leftists, catch-up conservatives and transphobic altarpieces: it was our most read piece of the week.

Later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to consider MSNBC's latest theory: While they were investigating Trump for stealing the 2016 election, he leapt two steps ahead and stole the 2024 election. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark analyzed Dan Bongino's lawsuit against The Daily Beast and its "damn lazy reporter" Lachlan Markay.

Meanwhile Laura's Links roamed the Internet and rounded up a slew of stories from transitioning three-year-olds to signing with Santa.

~On Wednesday Steyn wondered: Is the Ground Zero Mosque back?

Late in the evening the President was impeached - or, at any rate, "impeached". Mark gave his thoughts on the matter to John Oakley - along with analysis of recent elections in Canada and the UK, and the vexed question of whether "Merry Christmas!" is an alt-right dog-whistle. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday Steyn returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to ponder CNN's last redoubt: Gate 27 at La Guardia.

~On Friday Mark read the last of L M Montgomery's Christmas Tales for Our Time: Click for "The End of the Young Family Feud", "Aunt Cyrilla's Christmas Basket", "The Falsoms' Christmas Dinner", "The Christmas Surprise at Enderly Road", "The Josephs' Christmas", and "Anne and Katherine at Green Gables" Parts One and Two - or go here for a good old binge-listen.

Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see here.

~Kathy Shaidle's Saturday movie column celebrated Gene Wilder, and our marquee presentation found a slew of star guests joining Steyn for this year's Mark Steyn Christmas Show:

"Great show," enthused Roger Clark over at YouTube. "Thanks, Mark. Merry Christmas." But Ron Paul fan Ivan Walker said: "Seriously? Do you pay to get into this party or do you have to pay to get out?"

While we're in the Yuletide mood, an hour of musical delights can be found in Mark and Jessica's Christmas album, which is also the perfect stocking stuffer.

Much of what we do here each month, including Tales for Our Time, The Mark Steyn Show and our Sunday Poem, we also do live and on water on our Mark Steyn cruises. We're thrilled that so many have already signed up for next year's Third Annual Steyn Cruise, with Conrad Black, Michele Bachmann, Douglas Murray and more.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, December 9-15

It's Christmas at SteynOnline and we have an array of glittering gift ideas among our Steynamite Yuletide Specials - as well as a gift that lasts all year, and a gift that's once in a lifetime. Plus we have a pre-Christmas week of festive pleasures in the days ahead, from Tales for Our Time to Song of the Week to The Mark Steyn Christmas Show.

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

~The week began with a highlight of the Christmas playlist - or, in this case, sleighlist.

~Monday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show found Mark in conversation with Douglas Murray on his new book The Madness of Crowds: Race, Gender and Identity. Click below to watch:

The Mark Steyn Show is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see here.

Later Mark joined Tucker Carlson to consider the latest Twitterstorm - the Peloton Christmas ad:

You may have noticed Tal Bachman singing his big hit "She's So High" in the background of that Peloton ad. Tad and his dad Randy Bachman will be right here next weekend on The Mark Steyn Christmas Show.

~On Tuesday Laura's Links roamed the Internet and rounded up a slew of stories from Joe Biden's leg hair to the death of the man Oberlin College grossly defamed.

~On Wednesday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on a range of topics starting with the impeachment circus and the Inspector General's report. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Thursday Mark returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to talk with Brian Kilmeade about Democrats, impeachment, and the logical necessity of yet another Hillary run.

~In the early hours of Friday morning Boris Johnson led UK Tories to their biggest parliamentary majority since the glory days of Mrs Thatcher. Steyn's column on the election was our most read piece of the week.

~At the weekend we like to avert our gaze from the grubby churn of politics and kick loose with the finer pleasures of life. Kathy Shaidle's Saturday movie pick was worth waiting for, and our marquee presentation was Mark's reading of the first of this season's Christmas Tales for Our Time: You can hear "Matthew Insists on Puffed Sleeves" from Anne of Green Gables here, and L M Montgomery's western foray "Christmas at Red Butte" here.

While we're in the Yuletide mood, an hour of musical delights can be found in Mark and Jessica's Christmas album, which is also the perfect stocking stuffer.

Much of what we do here each month, including Tales for Our Time, Steyn's Song of the Week and our Sunday Poem, we also do live and on water on our Mark Steyn cruises.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, December 2-8

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

~The week began and ended with Islamic violence, in London and Florida respectively. Steyn addressed the Fishmongers' Hall attack in his column "Unlearning Together", and the Pensacola attack in "Too Stupid to Survive (cont.)".

~On Monday Mark joined Tucker Carlson to celebrate the launch of Joe Biden's "No Malarkey" tour. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Laura's Links roamed the Internet and rounded up a slew of stories from a partyless prince to the world's worst Hitler.

Tuesday also brought news that Steyn was once again the King of Cable ...for one night only.

~On Wednesday Mark checked in with Alex Pierson on Toronto's Global News Radio 640 to mull Trump, Trudeau, Macron and the fiasco of Nato's seventieth birthday beano. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday Steyn returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to consider the newfound religiosity of Nancy Pelosi:

~Friday was the thirtieth anniversary of the "Montreal Massacre". Mark's reflection on the atrocity and its distortion by the Canadian state was our most read piece of the week.

~At the weekend we like to avert our gaze from the grubby churn of politics and kick loose with music and movies. The peerless Kathy Shaidle returned to our Saturday cinema beat with Kirk Douglas' Ace in the Hole, and our weekly musical feature found Mark in conversation with a legendary character of Tin Pan Alley.

Much of what we do here each month, including Tales for Our Time, Steyn's Song of the Week and our Sunday Poem, we also do live and on water on our Mark Steyn cruises. We're thrilled that so many have already signed up for next year's Third Annual Steyn Cruise, with Conrad Black, Michele Bachmann, Douglas Murray and more.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, November 25-December 1

SteynOnline turned seventeen this Thanksgiving, and to mark the anniversary there's 17 per cent off all Mark's books, CDs and more over at the Steyn store ...but only until midnight Eastern on Monday night!

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

~The week began with Steyn tracing the link between the Black Sox Scandal, the punk band Cockney Rejects, the pre-Raphaelite painter Sir John Everett Millais, and one of the most popular boy's names in Estonia.

~Mark's Monday Notebook pondered the accelerating destruction of women's sports, and the British police's descent into bullying thoughtcrime commissars: it was our most read piece of the week.

Later on Monday Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to discuss the alternative universe of Elizabeth Warren. Click below to watch:

~In the wake of Monday's Supreme Court ruling in the seven-year Mann vs Steyn case, Tuesday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show saw Mark chewing over climate issues with Anthony Watts, proprietor of the world's most read climate website, plus the two men who broke Mann's hockey stick, Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick:

~On Wednesday Laura's Links roamed the Internet and rounded up a slew of stories from Jews for Jihad to constabulary coiffures.

Later Steyn made a rare Wednesday appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to celebrate the 2020 presidential candidates who never made it to, er, 2020:

~Thanksgiving found Mark offering his annual advice for defusing political tensions round the turkey, followed by his traditional Thanksgiving Day sampler.

~Black Friday's 17-per-cent-off SteynOnline birthday bonanza was bookended by two telly appearances. Mark started the day at "Fox & Friends" talking Hong Kong and climate protests, and ended it guest-hosting America's Number Two cable show, "Tucker Carlson Tonight". He opened the latter with certain Democrat candidates' doomed campaigns:

And he closed it out with a cheery thought for the weekend - the return of the Black Death:

~Steyn's weekend column marked the twentieth anniversary of Australia's republican referendum. His Saturday movie date recalled the peak of Michael Moore's celebrity: Bowling for Columbine.

As mentioned above, on Monday the US Supreme Court declined to hear an interlocutory appeal in the Mann vs Steyn case by Mark's co-defendants, so (as Steyn asked the court to order over six years ago) the matter will now be proceeding to trial - notwithstanding a withering dissent from Mr Justice Alito. There's never been a better time to remind supporters of that 17 per cent off Mark's two climatological bestsellers - Climate Change: The Facts and "A Disgrace to the Profession": The World's Scientists on Michael E Mann, his Hockey Stick and Their Damage to Science Volume I - and our exclusive range of stylish trialwear.

Much of what we do here each month, including Tales for Our Time, Steyn's Song of the Week and our Sunday Poem, we also do live and on water on our Mark Steyn cruises.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, November 18-24

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

~The week began with a brand new entry in Steyn's ongoing anthology of video poetry. This time Mark introduced and recited a remarkably prescient poem by Rudyard Kipling celebrating its centenary this autumn and more relevant than ever: "The Gods of the Copybook Headings."

Steyn's Sunday Poem is made with the support of The Mark Steyn Club. All Mark's poetry selections can be found at our easy-access Netflix-style tile-format poetry home page.

~Mark's Monday Notebook pondered George Conway's full-on participation in the anti-Trump "Resistance", and Prince Andrew's career-detonating interview: it was our most read piece of the week.

Later on Monday Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to discuss Mayor Pete's presidential campaign, going gangbusters in Iowa but nowhere in South Carolina. Click below to watch::

~On Tuesday, Laura's Links roamed the Internet and rounded up a slew of lively figures from Don Cherry to Dolly Parton.

~Midweek, Steyn observed the tenth anniversary of Climategate. On Wednesday he looked back on the corruption of peer review. The following day he turned to the matter of precisely how the science gets settled.

~On Thursday Mark and Tucker addressed Joe Biden's eccentric performance in this week's low-rated Democrat debate, as well as the contrast between the treatments of HRH The Duke of York and ersatz princeling Hunter Biden:

In case that grapefruit reference was a wee bit obscure, Steyn managed to squeeze a whole piece out of it for our weekly movie date.

~Mark's Friday column hailed the progressive movement's increasing enthusiasm for self-extinction.

~On the weekend we like to avert our gaze from the grubby churn of politics and kick loose with music and movies. This week Steyn concluded his two-part celebration of a classic songwriting team of the last sixty years.

Much of what we do here each month, including Tales for Our Time, Steyn's Song of the Week and our Sunday Poem, we also do live and on water on our Mark Steyn cruises. We're thrilled that so many have already signed up for next year's Third Annual Steyn Cruise, with Conrad Black, Michele Bachmann, Douglas Murray and more.

For more information, call +1 (770) 952-1959 if you're dialing from beyond North America - and, if you're calling from Canada or the US, it's 1-800-707-1634. Or you can email your query here.

Another week of print, audio and video delights at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
