Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, May 14-20

Happy Victoria Day weekend to all our Canadian readers. Mark will be back in his native land next month to receive the very first George Jonas Freedom Award. More details below. This Victoria Day weekend, meanwhile, was the first time the Sovereign's official Canadian birthday was also the occasion for a Royal Wedding. Mark celebrated the Royal couple in pictures, and will have some appropriate music later today.

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

~The week began with the twentieth anniversary of Frank Sinatra's death. Mark considered Sinatra on screen, and a vintage performance.

~On Monday Steyn did double-duty on "Tucker Carlson Tonight". First up was the start of the second year of the "Russia investigation". Next came Michael Avenatti's java jive. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark returned to the Golden EIB Microphone to guest-host America's Number One radio show. You can find a few moments from the broadcast here.

~On Wednesday's Clubland Q&A Steyn took questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet. Among the topics covered were which Russian dirt attracts prosecution and which doesn't; blackmail and black robes; Franchise Man and Burqa Girl; varieties of theocrat; and a word on the late Tom Wolfe, author of Bonfire of the Vanities. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Thursday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark and Tucker considered the Mad Max factor. Click below to watch:

~For the weekend, as part of this month's first-anniversary observances of The Mark Steyn Club, Mark launched the latest audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - and a timely one for the Royal Wedding weekend: Rudyard Kipling's The Man Who Would Be King. For Friday's episode, click here. For Saturday's, click here.

Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. More details on the Steyn Club below.

As mentioned above, next month Mark will be returning to his home town of Toronto to receive the very first George Jonas Freedom Award from Canada's Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms on June 15th. This is a huge and very humbling honor for Mark, who treasures the memory of the late Mr Jonas, a genuine champion of liberty and a truly great Canadian. You can find more details about the event here - and, if you enter STEYNCLUB18, you'll get 15 per cent off your ticket.

As many of you know, Mark's Number One jazz bestseller Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, featuring his own groovy feline Marvin on the cover, has attracted dozens of rave reviews at Amazon. However, another Steyn album, Goldfinger, has gone comparatively unnoticed. So we are grateful to Max for this five-star review:

I received Mark's album Feline Groovy as a gift a few days ago. While I love Mark's writing and exceptional wit, I was not expecting to love his music. Wow, was I wrong! I liked it so much, in fact, that after listening I bought myself Goldfinger. How this album only has 3 reviews is beyond me. While different in overall mood, both albums contain delightful arrangements and vocals that can be enjoyed by everyone. Steyn's performance of 'The Very Thought of You' alone makes this album worth buying. Hoping there will be a new album sometime in the near future!

Thanks, Max. Mark's hoping he gets to finish his new album (interrupted by a year of litigation hell) very soon. Meanwhile, Goldfinger is available on CD - and, for instant gratification, via digital download from Amazon or iTunes. Or you can pick it up direct from the Steyn store. Incidentally, there's an entirely different Steyn performance of "The Very Thought of You" on Mark's live music special with Liza Minnelli, Paul Simon, Maria Muldaur, Everything But The Girl and other guests.

Much of our content at SteynOnline this last year has been funded by members of The Mark Steyn Club. Don't worry, none of our regular features are being paywalled, or anything like that: we're proud to say that there's more free content at SteynOnline than ever before in our fifteen-year history. But we are providing Club members with a few extras, such as our Sunday Poem, Tales for Our Time, participation in our Clubland Q&As, and the opportunity to sail with Mark on the inaugural Mark Steyn Club Cruise from Montreal to Boston this September at the height of foliage season.

You can find more details about The Mark Steyn Club here. And don't forget our Steyn Club Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates). As for our first-birthday Club competition to find something defamatory in this Song of the Week essay, Mark did not think it appropriate to announce the winners on Their Royal Highnesses' wedding day, so we're postponing that announcement until later this week.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week and Part Three of The Man Who Would Be King.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, May 7-13

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, mums, mas and maters among our readers. Mark has some songs for the season.

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

~The week began with the start of The Mark Steyn Club's second year and the only Song of the Week we could have chosen. We thank all those first-week Founding Members who've decided to sign up for another twelve months - and we celebrated our first birthday with a cavalcade of Non-Stop Number Ones, in which Mark talked to Andy Williams, Bananarama, Paul Simon, Artie Shaw, Lulu, Julio Iglesias and other hitmakers about some of their biggest-selling records.

~On Monday Mark swung by "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to mull Stormy Daniels' double act with Alec Baldwin as Trump. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday New York Attorney-General and #MeToo crusader Eric Schneiderman resigned after accusations of violence and death threats by four women. Mark reflected on Samantha Bee's fallen superhero in what became our most-read piece of the week.

~On Wednesday's John Oakley Show, Mark talked free speech, conservative faintheartedness, and depravity for hypocrites. Click below to listen:

~Thursday-night TV in the US was dominated by President Trump's speech in Indiana. Afterwards Mark and Tucker engaged in some instant analysis.

~On Friday the ongoing posturing and showboating from senatorial humbugs over the nomination of a new CIA director prompted Mark to re-air a timely episode of The Mark Steyn Show in which he interviewed the man who waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Dr James Mitchell. Click below to watch:

~For the weekend Mark announced details of the inaugural Steyn Club Cruise from Montreal to Boston, and chose a similar theme for our Saturday movie date: "Voyage to Disaster."

This coming week, Thursday May 17th, Mark will be in Las Vegas - not, alas, to see Wayne Newton, but instead for a hearing at Clark County District Court to intervene in scofflaw Cary Katz's attempt to evade the consequences of CRTV's appalling lawsuit against Mark by self-suing his own company into pseudo-bankruptcy. Even though he is in real-world terms both plaintiff and defendant, we doubt the seamy Katz will actually show up in court as either party. But Mark will be there, so for once what happens in Vegas won't stay in Vegas. As you know, CRTV has now re-sued Steyn for a mere $5 million on the grounds, inter alia, that this Song of the Week essay is grossly defamatory of Katz. So tomorrow Mark will be announcing the results of our reader competition to find something actionable in it - in the first of what will be presumably (given his insatiable litigiousness) our annual Cary Katz Scofflaw Deadbeat Sleazebag Self-Suing Great Patriotic Bum Award.

By contrast, next month Steyn will be returning to his home town of Toronto to receive the very first George Jonas Freedom Award from Canada's Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms on June 15th. This is a huge and very humbling honor for Mark, who treasures the memory of the late Mr Jonas, a genuine champion of liberty and a truly great Canadian. You can find more details about the event here, but do bear in mind that early-bird booking ends this Tuesday, May 15th - and, if you enter STEYNCLUB18, you'll get 15 per cent off your ticket. So don't leave it too late!

Don't worry, none of our regular features are being paywalled, or anything like that: we're proud to say that there's more free content at SteynOnline than ever before in our fifteen-year history.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week and a bonus Sunday edition of Mark at the Movies.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 30-May 6

ImageHappy Birthday to The Mark Steyn Club, which was born one year ago today - May 6th 2017. And Happy Birthday too to all our first-day Founding Members who joined on this day twelve months ago, starting with the very first - a gentleman from a small town in Idaho who signed up just after noon Pacific time. We hope our first-day founders have enjoyed this first year and that you'll consider renewing for a second. It's a great privilege to have you with us for our various endeavors.

As the graphic at right subtly suggests, among the new Club features for the coming year is the inaugural Mark Steyn Club Cruise, an innovation which came by way of request from many members. This first voyage will be at sea from September 29th to October 6th down the Eastern Seaboard at the peak of fall foliage: We'll travel from Montreal to Boston via historic Quebec City, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Maine and the highly minimal New Hampshire seacoast in the company of Mark and his special guests. Club members will receive an email with more information about this event later today.

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

~The week began very hectically with Jenny, Jeanine and Julie: The first was another of Mark's excursions into video poetry - "Jenny Kiss'd Me"; the second was Judge Jeanine and Steyn talking Trump and Mueller; and the third was the composer of our long-time Song of the Week theme tune, "I've Heard That Song Before".

~On Monday Mark swung by "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to discuss the fiasco that was the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

~On Tuesday The Mark Steyn Club kicked off its first-anniversary observances with a special edition of our Clubland Q&A, in which Mark takes questions from Steyn Club members live around the planet. For our first birthday, we talked about what members liked and disliked about the Club, but Steyn also answered queries about seedy scofflaw Cary Katz, the CRTV head honcho who lost his case against Mark comprehensively and is now refusing to pay what he owes us. (See our CRTV deadbeat debt clock at right.) Steyn, however, also found time to tackle more profound questions, such as the decline of human dignity in a world without work. You can listen to the full show here.

~Wednesday brought a rare midweek appearance by Mark with Tucker Carlson, talking about post-Boy Scouts, the return of Nancy Pelosi, and Michelle Obama's descent into soft rock shlock. Click below to watch:

~On Thursday Steyn considered the human wreckage left by the Deep State's refusal to accept the result of the 2016 election. "The Process is the Punishment (As Always)" was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Friday Mark offered a postscript to this week's news about Boy Scouts of America with a look at how we got here.

~Saturday's movie date revisited a boring film but a brilliant trailer: Godzilla.

Steyn and Bo Snerdley from "The Rush Limbaugh Show" had a marvelous night in Polk County, Florida on Friday: Mark was very touched by Mr Snerdley's generous introduction, and by the warm welcome from Polk County Republicans, including Agriculture Commissioner and gubernatorial contender Adam Putnam and many other political candidates. Tonight, Sunday, he'll be in New York for the annual gala fundraiser for CAMERA, the indispensable institution for the truth of what's happening in the Middle East. More details here - and please note the admission price is considered a tax-deductible donation, and you can get $50 off if you enter promo code MARK.

Next month Steyn will be in Toronto to receive the very first George Jonas Freedom Award. This is a huge and very humbling honor for Mark, who treasures the memory of the late Mr Jonas, a genuine champion of liberty and a truly great Canadian. You can find more details about the event here.

As mentioned above, despite comprehensively losing their case against Steyn, Cary Katz's sleazy CRTV has decided to sue Mark all over again - this time for a mere $5 million. In addition, the deadbeat poker-playing student-loan billionaire is also suing CRTV - in other words, suing himself to make his own company sufficiently bankrupt to be unable to pay us. This devious maneuver has attracted little attention from the conservative media, but the poker press is all over it:

PokerGo Owner's Bizarre $20 Million Lawsuit Makes Headlines

Also:

Poker Central, CRTV Sued By Their Owner

And one more:

Billionaire Poker Player Sues His Own Company

Mark will be in Nevada District Court in Clark County on May 29th in an attempt to prevent this obvious nonsense. If you're one of our many Vegas readers, do swing by and say hello. As for CRTV's new suit against Steyn, the complaint is 200 pages long and includes as exhibits two of Mark's recent Song of the Week selections. Apparently Cary Katz asserts that Steyn's essay on "Oh, Happy Day" is disparaging and defamatory of him. So we're running a special competition for readers to identify anything actionable in that "Happy Day" column. Email your entry here, and Mark will select the best at the end of this coming week. The winner will receive a year's subscription to CRTV. The second-placed entry will win two subscriptions to CRTV, but you probably saw that joke coming.

Much of our content at SteynOnline this last year has been funded by members of The Mark Steyn Club. Don't worry, none of our regular features are being paywalled, or anything like that: we're proud to say that there's more free content at SteynOnline than ever before in our fifteen-year history.

You'll find more details about The Mark Steyn Club here. And don't forget our Steyn Club Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates).

The first week of Year Two of The Mark Steyn Club begins tonight with a suitably celebratory Song of the Week - and with many more anniversary observances in the days ahead. Thank you again for your support - and many happy returns!

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 23-29

Happy Sunday - or early Monday to our Oz and Kiwi readers. We will have a Mark Steyn Club video bonus for you later this morning in which Steyn discusses and reads Leigh Hunt's great poem "Jenny Kiss'd Me". We hope you'll tune in - because, as Mark 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 celebrating the centenary of a great American song, and yukking it up on a rollicking edition of "The Greg Gutfeld Show".

~Our Monday Notebook featured comedy gold from Mitt Romney, Justin Trudeau and more. Later that day, Steyn did double-duty on "Tucker Carlson Tonight", analyzing both the appalling mass murder in his hometown of Toronto and Kanye West going rogue on Twitter.

~On Tuesday President Macron visited the White House, and Mark covered that and the rest of the day's news guest-hosting for Rush on America's Number One radio show. If you enjoy Steyn at the Golden EIB Microphone, this Friday, May 4th, he'll be joining Rush's pal Mr Snerdley live on stage in Lakeland, Florida. If you're in the Sunshine State, we hope to see you there. It should be a fun night.

~On Wednesday Peter Lucey, of Wokingham in Berkshire, resigned his office. Why? Well...

Small Town Mayor Forced to Quit for Following Kassam, Steyn, Wilders on Social Media

Mark was not impressed by the new thought-crime commissars and their court eunuchs. Later, he kept his midweek date with John Oakley on Global News Radio 640, to address the emerging picture of the Toronto carnage, plus a humiliating climbdown by his fellow Ontarian Shania Twain. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday Bill Cosby was convicted of sexual assault on what chanced to be the 40th anniversary of Juanita Broaddrick's rape by Bill Clinton. Steyn considered the contrasting fortunes of Cosby and Clinton in "A Tale of Two Bills": It was our most-read piece of the week. Later, on his Thursday appearance with Tucker Carlson, he looked at Kanye, Trump and the suddenly expanding roll-call of conservative celebrities. Click below to watch:

~The week ended with more comedy gold: The good news is that CRTV sued Steyn for ten million dollars, and lost, comprehensively. The bad news is that, late on Friday, CRTV re-sued Steyn for five million dollars.

Presumably, after they lose that case, they'll re-re-sue us for $2.5 million. And then $1.25 million. At that rate of attrition, Mark will be able to afford to throw 'em a bone and let 'em win one another three or four suits down the road. The new complaint is 200 pages long and includes as exhibits two of Steyn's recent Song of the Week selections. Apparently CRTV's head honcho Cary Katz is taking time out of his hectic schedule of suing himself to argue that Mark's essays on "We Are the Champions" and "Oh, Happy Day" are disparaging and defamatory of him. Please, no tittering. He means it, and intends to spend whatever seven-figure sum it takes to lose yet another lawsuit.

~On Saturday, our Weekend Notebook pondered a tragic tale out of England and a pitiful one out of Pennsylvania. For our weekly movie date Steyn marked the fiftieth anniversary of The Odd Couple.

As mentioned above, this Friday, May 4th, Mark will be joining Mr Snerdley from Rush live on stage in Florida. On Sunday May 6th he'll be in New York for the annual gala fundraiser for CAMERA, an invaluable institution for the truth on what's happening in the Middle East. More details here - and please note the admission price is considered a tax-deductible donation, and you can get $50 off if you enter promo code MARK.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 16-22

This was an important week for Mark, in which Judge Bransten of the New York Supreme Court upheld every last dot and comma of Judge Gordon's decision in the CRTV vs Steyn case. It was a devastating, total defeat for CRTV summed up in this New York Daily News headline:

Conservative commentator Mark Steyn wins $4M case against company that canceled his online talk show

And in this one:

Conservative Pundit Wins $4M From Network That Fired Him

CRTV have yet to pay a penny, and indeed have indicated to us that they don't intend to. We thank all Mark's viewers, listeners and readers around the world who have stuck with him during CRTV's vicious and sustained year-long assault on him. You can read some of the comments on the court's verdict here.

You can also read a few choice moments from Judge Gordon's findings, including CRTV head honcho Cary Katz and his Chief Content Officer Chris Crane scoffing at "Pussy Steyn" and pledging to "put this motherf**ker on the hook for everything".

Well, who's the pussy now? That's CRTV Chief Executive Pussy Cary Katz at top right being fitted for his new hat, courtesy of the Evil Blogger Lady. Mark's report on his court triumph was, gratifyingly, our most-read piece of the week.

Steyn will be setting aside the triumphalist gloating this Thursday to speak at the Ethan Allen Institute's 25th anniversary gala in Burlington, Vermont - the heart of the People's Republic of Berniestan. If you're in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, upstate New York or Quebec, it's a short drive and Mark will be delighted to see you. You can find more details here - and get 15 per cent off the ticket price if you enter the promo code EAIMARK.

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

The week began with Mark celebrating the 50th anniversary of a great song: "What A Wonderful World."

~Our Monday Notebook featured a portent of tomorrow; immigration and free speech;and why the Republican base despises its leaders. Later that day, Steyn did double-duty on "Tucker Carlson Tonight". First up was Comey, McCabe et al. Then Mark and Tucker addressed The New Yorker's distaste at being served chicken sandwiches by believing Christians. Click below to watch:

~Tuesday's brand new SteynPost examined the British state's war on cutlery. Click below to watch:

SteynPosts is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. For more on The Mark Steyn Club, see below.

Also on Tuesday Barbara Bush, wife and mother of presidents, died at the age of 92. Mark offered a few thoughts. Click below to watch:

~On Wednesday Steyn guest-hosted "Tucker Carlson Tonight" for a full hour of debate on undocumented Uber-driver rapists, Swedish social disintegration, the James Comey media blitz, the racist macchiatos of Starbucks, and goat yoga.

~On Thursday Mark again filled in for Tucker for an hour of fast-breaking news about the Comey memos. As a result, they never got to the weekly news quiz "Final Exam", so, after the show, Mark, Katie and Brett hung around and recorded it anyway. Click below to watch:

~Friday marked the 50th anniversary of a famous speech on mass immigration by Enoch Powell that resonates in Britain and elsewhere to this day. In the half-century since, immigrants have become such objects of veneration that, on TV with Stuart Varney, Mark found himself discussing the Governor of New York's bizarre claim to be "undocumented". Click below to watch:

~For our Saturday movie date Steyn marked St George's Day with a very English film, "Four Weddings and a Funeral".

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 9-15

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

The week began with a Steyn Song of the Week for baseball season.

~Mark's Monday Notebook took a brisk tour of the cultural scene, from Ted Kennedy on the big screen to Diamond & Silk getting stiffed by Big Social via the 90th birthday of a master musical satirist. Later, with Tucker Carlson, he mulled CNN's news priorities, and the British state's war on cutlery.

~On Tuesday Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg came to Congress to testify on his "monetization" of two billion people. Steyn considered a revealing moment in what became our most-read piece of the week.

~On Wednesday Mark checked in with John Oakley in Toronto to address the left's war on free speech, the Saskatchewan bus crash and the de-humanizing effect of identity politics. Click below to listen:

With reference to the heartless Maclean's writer Steyn mentioned, there was a Twitter postscript.

~On Thursday Mark did double-duty on "Tucker Carlson Tonight". First up was Robert Mueller's investigation without end, and the state of US federal justice. Click below to watch:

Next up Steyn and Carlson looked at Los Angeles' plan to house homeless people in your backyard.

~Late on Friday night the Pentagon, with its UK and French allies, launched an attack on Syria. That was one of the subjects, along with Viktor Orbán's election victory in Hungary and Paul Ryan's slo-mo retirement from Washington, in Mark's Weekend Notebook.

~Steyn's Saturday movie date was the remarkable new movie on Ted Kennedy, Mary Jo Kopechne and Chappaquiddick.

~Last night Mark concluded the latest in our series of nightly audio adventures, Tales for Our Time: Robert Louis Stevenson's enduring classic The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Click to hear Steyn read Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Six, Seven, Eight and Nine. Or you can go all the way back to Part One and have a good old binge-listen.

We'll have a brand new Tale for Our Time in a couple of weeks as part of our first-anniversary observances for The Mark Steyn Club, on which more below.

Dedicated followers of the New York court schedule (scroll down) may be interested to know that the following has now been postponed until 11.30am this coming Thursday, April 19th:

Case Name: STEYN, MARK vs. CRTV, LLC

Exactly a week later - April 26th - Mark will be appearing at the Ethan Allen Institute's 25th anniversary gala in Burlington, Vermont. The Green Mountain State is not exactly natural Steyn territory, but, if you're in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, upstate New York or Quebec, it's a short drive and Mark will be delighted to see you.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 2-8

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

The week began with the hundredth anniversary of the Royal Air Force, marked by Steyn with a musical cavalcade.

~Mark's Monday Notebook examined a landmark month for murder in London and New York, NBC and NPR's grasp of Easter, and Islam and the logic of Islamo-leftie outsourcing to women and children: it was our most-read piece of the week. Later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to consider the contradictions between open borders for illegal immigrants and Orange Alert for US citizens. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on immigration, offensive statuary, the deaths of South Africa's Winnie Mandela and Canada's Peter Munk, and much more. You can hear the full show here.

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

~On Wednesday Mark mulled the shooting at YouTube and its perpetrator - a female vegan Iranian refugee enraged at "de-monetization" - in his column "The Grand Convergence".

~On Thursday Steyn did double-duty on "Tucker Carlson Tonight", first discussing the left's plan to use credit-card companies to put the squeeze on the Second Amendment, and then addressing Hillary Clinton's claim to have ":accelerated" the #MeToo movement. Click below to watch:

Mark returned to the subject of self-defense in light of a disturbing story out of London: "An Englishman's home is his proportionately responsive castle."

~On Friday Steyn launched the latest in our series of nightly audio adventures, Tales for Our Time: Robert Louis Stevenson's enduring classic The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. You can hear Mark read Part One here, and Part Two here. Steyn Club member Fran Lavery writes:

They say a good eye can catch a masterpiece from a fake in a blink, well, to my good ear, I'm catching that this one is going straight to the top of the charts of Mark Steyn's masterful readings of all thus far. I've already reached the edge of my nerves in anticipation for the next episode.

That will air tonight, Fran - and thank you for your thumbs-up. Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful.

~Our weekend movie date found Mark celebrating the centenary of a great American actor, and the star of Sunset Boulevard, Picnic, The Wild Bunch and many more, William Holden.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 26-April 1

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to our readers around the world. On this Easter morn, we have a movie on the meaning and a song for the season. While we're at it, Happy April Fool's Day and Happy 100th Birthday to the Royal Air Force, born this day in 1918 from a merger of the British Army's Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Navy's Royal Naval Air Service and thus the first freestanding, non-naval, non-army air force in the world.

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

The week began with Steyn celebrating the hundredth anniversary of an American classic, and all his media colleagues salivating as the Stormy clouds gathered. Mark addressed the latter with Tucker Carlson. Click below to watch:

~On Monday Steyn considered heroism, depravity and passivity in a dying France. It was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Tuesday, in light of Stormy's supposed criminal implications, Mark revisited the case of the federally regulated family man. He also reminded readers of the media's double standards (with bonus song parody).

~On Wednesday Steyn checked in with John Oakley on Toronto's AM640, to talk about cradle-to-grave welfare and looting the future - and to throw in a few cheap Justin Trudeau cracks. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday Mark appeared on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to talk about the ongoing attempt to blame Hillary Clinton's defeat on sexism.

~Mark ended the week with another video edition of Mark's Mailbox, answering questions from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on identity politics, canine Nazis and much more. Click below to watch:

Mark's Mailbox is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. For more on The Mark Steyn Club, see below.

Dedicated followers of the New York court schedule (scroll down) may be interested to know that the following has now been postponed until 11.30am on Thursday April 19th:

Court: New York Supreme Court
Index Number: 0650887/2018
Case Name: STEYN, MARK vs. CRTV, LLC

Relief Sought: Confirm Award

There is plenty of disinformation out there regarding what happened, but, as Mark put it, he is happy to let the Court speak, definitively.

Exactly a week later - April 26th - the Ethan Allen Institute, which comprises almost all the remaining sane people in Bernie Sanders' Vermont, will be hosting its 25th anniversary gala in South Burlington. The Green Mountain State is not exactly natural Steyn territory, but, if you're in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, upstate New York or Quebec, it's a short drive and Mark will be pleased to see you. You can find more details here - and you can get 15 per cent off the ticket price if you enter the promo code EAIMARK.

Much of our content at SteynOnline is funded by members of The Mark Steyn Club. Don't worry, none of our regular features are being paywalled, or anything like that: in fact, there's more free content at SteynOnline than ever before in our fifteen-year history. But we are providing Club members with a few extras, including our Sunday Poems, and participation in our Clubland Q&As - the latest of which airs live around the planet this Tuesday at 4pm US Eastern Time.

You'll find more details about The Mark Steyn Club here. And, if you have a pal who'd enjoy Mark's audio adventures with Conan Doyle, H G Wells & Co, don't forget our Steyn Club Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates). We'll have a new nightly radio serial beginning this coming Friday.

The week began with Steyn finally addressing the absence of Lennon & McCartney in our Song of the Week department.

~On Monday Mark considered the latest English town to be afflicted with mass Muslim gang-rape of children - Telford, in Shropshire. It was our most-read piece of the week.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 12-18

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

The week began with our Song of the Week: the spookiest of cowboy classics, "Ghost Riders in the Sky".

~Monday saw Steyn sally forth in all available media - print, audio and video. First up was his view of the British state's increasing hostility to free speech: "Speakers Cornered" was our most-read piece of the week. Next, Mark guest-hosted America's Number One radio show: Along the way he interviewed House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who spoke movingly of the difference in police response at his own shooting and at the Parkland school massacre. Click below to listen:

Finally, Steyn rounded out the day on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" with some breaking news on the Russia investigation.

~On Tuesday Mark checked in with John Oakley on Toronto's Global News Radio 640 to address a possible sighting of Brexit-Trumpian populism in Ontario and Hillary Clinton's disastrous tour of India. Click below to listen:

~Wednesday's Mark Steyn Show featured Mark's interview with Canadian free-speech heroine Lindsay Shepherd. Click below to watch:

The Mark Steyn Show is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. For more on The Mark Steyn Club, see below.

~Mark's Thursday appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" found him and Cheryl Casone pondering the disturbing death of a dog on United Airlines - and what it says about the airlines and us.

~On Friday Steyn did double-duty on television. On the curvy couch at "Fox & Friends", he returned to the subject of the dead puppy, and also talked about the CIA, waterboarding, and the millennial "quarter-life" crisis. Click below to watch:

At the other end of the day, Mark guest-hosted "Tucker Carlson Tonight" for a full hour of discussion and analysis on illegal immigration, rogue FBI bureaucrats, racist Democrat power-brokers, German social collapse, and more.

~For St Patrick's Day Steyn offered the colleen who puts the sham in shamrock - Hillary on parade - and a Saturday movie pick starring Liam Neeson as Michael Collins.
