Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, September 10-16

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark. And don't forget, many of the features below - including our Song of the Week, Clubland Q&A, Tales for Our Time, Mark at the Movies and The Mark Steyn Show - we'll be doing live and on water during the inaugural Mark Steyn cruise at the end of this month. We'll be sailing from Montreal to Boston at the height of foliage season with Steyn and his special guests, and a cavalcade of shipboard entertainments. You can find more details about the Cruise here. (If you're thinking of coming, don't leave it too late, as the price is more favorable the earlier you book.)

~The week began with an extraordinary and embarrassing spectacle at the finals of the US Open. Mark addressed the sorry business in his column "Infame and Great Place". Less controversially, our Song of the Week celebrated the very first entry in the Sinatra songbook - and a personal credo.

~On Monday Steyn did double-duty on "Tucker Carlson Tonight", chewing over Google's algorithmic assistance to Democrats in 2016 and also Clinton prosecutor Ken Starr and special counsels then and now.

~Tuesday was the seventeenth anniversary of 9/11. Mark hosted a special edition of Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet - on where we were then, where we are now, and where we're headed. To hear the full show, click here.

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

~On Wednesday Mark's midweek column pondered "the word you can't question". It was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Thursday, with Judge Kavanaugh's nomination for the US Supreme Court looking more and more certain, Senator Dianne Feinstein tried a hail alma mater pass, alleging unspecified monkey business from Kavanaugh's high school years. Mark and Tucker considered the matter:

Later in the show Steyn responded to Tucker's interview with Stormy Daniels' creepy porn lawyer. Click below to watch:

~On Friday former Conservative cabinet minister Maxime Bernier announced a new political party, the People's Party of Canada. As M Bernier tweeted:

Want to know what I believe in? Watch this 35min interview with the great Mark Steyn.

~For the weekend, Mark launched the latest audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - and an especially timely one in this season of 9/11 remembrance: John Buchan's classic thriller Greenmantle. For Friday's episode, click here. For Saturday's, click here.

Tales for Our Time is made possible thanks to members of The Mark Steyn Club. More details on the Steyn Club below.

On Saturday evening, with Hurricane Florence pounding the Carolina coast, Mark's weekly movie date was a trip to Cape Fear.

For those interested, we've provided a handy guide to CRTV deadbeat Cary Katz's multiple lawsuits against Mark. We will update this page as the sleazy Katz adds to his swelling number of cases against Steyn, and link to the most recent court orders as soon as they're available.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week - and episode three of Greenmantle.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, September 3-9

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

~The week began with verse, musicalized and un-. Our Song of the Week was the most globally successful Italian song other than "O Sole Mio" ...but, if you prefer your rhymes without tunes, Mark also offered another one of his video poems - because, as he always says, video poetry is where the big bucks are. This latest is a classic imperiled by the usual civilizational barbarians: Rudyard Kipling's "If..."

Steyn's Sunday Poem is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. (For more on the Club, see below.) And don't forget, our Sunday Poem is one of many SteynOnline features we'll be doing live and on sea as part of our inaugural Steyn cruise at the end of this month. We'll be sailing from Montreal to Boston at the height of foliage season with Mark and his special guests, and presenting live shipboard editions of The Mark Steyn Show and other favorites along the way. You can find more details about the Cruise here. (If you're thinking of coming, don't leave it too late, as the price is more favorable the earlier you book.)

~On Labor Day, or Labour Day, Mark contemplated the world after work. It was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Tuesday the US Senate confirmation hearings began for Judge Kavanaugh with all the solemnity and dignity we have come to expect from "the world's greatest deliberative body". Steyn covered the showboating and circus antics live while guest-hosting America's Number One radio show.

~On Wednesday Mark did double-duty on the airwaves, with another three-hour stint at the Rush microphone down south and up north his regular midweek appearance with John Oakley in Toronto, talking Fahrenheit and Centigrade, miles and kilometres, wool and polyester, the red and the black. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday a "senior administration official" published an op-ed in The New York Times in which he boasted of subverting the President's agenda from within the White House. Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to consider the matter. Click below to watch:

~The controversy over the missing American flag in the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man rumbled on all week. On Friday Mark addressed the subject in "The Lost Frontier".

~For our Saturday movie date Steyn mourned the passing of Burt Reynolds with his breakout film: Deliverance.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 27-September 2

Happy Labor Day/Labour Day weekend to all our American and Canadian readers. We will have a Mark Steyn Club video bonus for you later this morning in which Mark discusses and reads Rudyard Kipling's great poem "If". We hope you'll tune in - because, as Steyn always says, video poetry is where the big bucks are. And don't forget, our Sunday Poem is one of many SteynOnline features we'll be doing live and on sea as part of our inaugural Steyn cruise at the end of this month. More details below.

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

~The week began with what Steyn called an "odd couple of the obituary column": John McCain and Neil Simon. He also marked the centenary of a blockbuster lyricist, Alan Jay Lerner, with one of his earliest standards: "Almost Like Being in Love."

~On Monday Mark joined Tucker Carlson to discuss prominent Democrats' need to "annul reality". Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet. Listeners lobbed a few hairballs on the whereabouts of Mark's beard and the beleaguered waxologists from British Columbia, but they also found time to get to democracy, diversity and Deep State doings. To hear the full show, click here.

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

~On Wednesday Mark's column revisited the competing theses of Francis Fukuyama and Samuel Huntington in "Danes, Davos and Denial": It was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Thursday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Steyn addressed the media reaction to that morning's Trump twitterstorm.

~Friday was a busy TV day for Mark. He guest-co-hosted (or co-guest-hosted) "The Five" and then joined Martha MacCallum to chew over NBC's enabling of Harvey Weinstein's sex assaults and the US/Canada trade negotiations.

~On Saturday Steyn started the day with a wide-ranging appearance on "Fox & Friends", and marked the Labor Day weekend with the ultimate laborers - Antz.

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

~Mark's Monday Notebook looked at western leaders' growing contempt for their citizens, and the rise of the phallocentric woman.

~On Tuesday Mark brought together a deported Nazi, a slain coed, and a flipped and unflipped minion to consider the bizarre priorities of US justice. It was our most-read piece of the week.

~Wednesday, aside from being the day of Steyn's exclusive interview with Monica Lewinsky's dress, also saw his return to "The John Oakley Show" in Toronto. He and guest-host Peter Shurman pondered illegal immigration north and south of the border, leaders who rebuke the citizenry, and the Bollywood bridesmaid's invitation to the Nafta signing ceremony. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark noted the Trumproaches running around inside the left's heads every morning.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 13-19

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

~The week began with Steyn celebrating one of his favorite pop songs, "On a Slow Boat to China", as an appropriately nautical theme for those who've booked passage on the inaugural Mark Steyn Club Cruise. It's not a slow boat to China but a leisurely voyage from Montreal to Boston at the height of the Eastern Seaboard's beautiful fall foliage season. Join Steyn and his doughty crew Michele Bachmann, John O'Sullivan, Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, along with special musical guest Tal Bachman. We'll be doing all our regular SteynOnline features - The Mark Steyn Show, Song of the Week, Tales for Our Time - but live and on water. You can find more details on the Cruise here.

~Mark's Monday Notebook looked at two significant shifts in the public square: its increasing surrender to Islam, and its accelerating banishment of the entire western inheritance.

Later that day Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to talk over two topics - the weekend's leftist violence in America, and the Creepy Porn Lawyer's announcement of his presidential bid. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet. Topics covered included blasphemous Indonesians, flaming Swedes, non-wreath-laying wreath-layers, matching ties and handkerchiefs, and what a fine girl Brandy Edwards is. To hear the full show, click here.

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

~Wednesday brought the big news of the week in America: the removal of former CIA director John Brennan's "security clearance" - which promptly sent the left into full meltdown. Steyn reacted on "Tucker Carlson Tonight":

~Steyn's Thursday Notebook returned to the subject of the ongoing demolition of the past, not only in America and Britain but especially in Canada, where the Dominion's first prime minister, Sir John A Macdonald, is being erased from public view.

~For the weekend and just ahead of the upcoming Steyn cruise, we revisited one of Mark's shipboard guests, Michele Bachmann, and a very perceptive preview of the Trump Administration:

~For our Saturday movie date, Steyn marked the ninetieth birthday of a great director, Nicolas Roeg, with whom Mark enjoyed a momentary possibility of silver screen stardom.

In legal news, CRTV continue to deny that they've lost their suit against Steyn and to refuse to pay up and move on. For those interested, we've provided a handy guide to CRTV's sleazy founder Cary Katz's multiple lawsuits against Mark. We will update this page as Katz adds to his swelling number of cases against Steyn.

~On Friday Mark did double duty, first guest-hosting America's Number One radio show, and then returning for a final stint in the anchor's chair on America's Number Three cable show, including Nancy Pelosi's weakening grip on the Democrat Party and the selective totalitarians of social media.

An Impending Se'nnight of Steyn

Mark returns from his summer hiatus tomorrow, Monday, live across America on "Tucker Carlson Tonight". We hope you'll tune in - and stick with Steyn for a full week of TV and radio appearances in the days ahead.

If audio and video are insufficient for you, then you may prefer Mark live in person, for seven sparkling nights on the inaugural Mark Steyn Club Cruise, sailing from Montreal to Boston at the height of the Eastern Seaboard's beautiful fall foliage season. Join Steyn and his doughty crew Michele Bachmann, John O'Sullivan, Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, along with special musical guest Tal Bachman. We'll be doing all our regular SteynOnline features - The Mark Steyn Show, Song of the Week, Tales for Our Time - but live and on water. You can find more details of the Cruise here.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the summer's gone around these parts:

~Before taking off, Mark joined Barbara Kay to talk free speech for Moses Znaimer's IdeaCity confab in Toronto. Click below to watch:

~Steyn was also honored by Canada's Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms with the first ever George Jonas Freedom Award. His acceptance speech begins about half-an-hour in, but don't miss Conrad Black's delightful intro to Mark, and the presentation of the award by George's widow Maya:

~We re-ran a few Steynian classics over recent weeks, including these ad-libbed remarks on America's Number One radio show, made the day after the Orlando nightclub massacre, about "the party at the end of the world". We think they're more timely than ever. Click below to listen:

~In Steyn's absence, we introduced a modest innovation for Mark Steyn Club members - a Clubland Open Thread. You can read what members made of the last few weeks' big issues here and here.

~For our weekend movie dates this summer we welcomed the first ever guest writer in SteynOnline's fifteen-year history, Mark's distinguished compatriot Kathy Shaidle. Do enjoy Kathy's terrific columns on Jerry Lewis and The King of Comedy, Bette Davis, Psycho and Rita Hayworth's Gilda - and we look forward to having her back very soon. Thank you also to Mark's favorite piano-playing imam Andrew Lawton for helping hold down the fort.

~Our Sunday Song of the Week featured a few reprises of beloved favorites, from George Gershwin's "Summertime" to Abba's "Waterloo", via the classical roots of Frank Sinatra's recording career and the all-time greatest World Cup anthem. We were also pleased to see that two chums of our musical endeavors here had a good summer. Goodfella Paul Sorvino was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Patsy Gallant was inducted into the Order of Canada. Here's Paul telling Mark about a unique family connection to "O Sole Mio":

And here's Patsy telling Mark about a unique childhood connection to Édith Piaf:

~The summer began with Mark taking his (temporary) leave, and revealing where the damages from his victory in the grisly CRTV vs Steyn suit will be going. For those of a legal bent, we have also provided a handy guide to CRTV founder Cary Katz's four (at the time of writing) lawsuits with Mark. We will update this page as Katz adds to his swelling number of cases against Steyn.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, June 18-24

Happy St-Jean-Baptiste Day to all our Quebec readers. It was a somewhat truncated se'nnight at SteynOnline, but, in case you missed it, here's how it looked to Mark:

~The week began with a rare outbreak of World Cup fever at SteynOnline, as Mark celebrated the all-time great footie anthem.

~On Monday Steyn pondered how Bertolt Brecht's sardonic advice on "dissolving the people" has been taken up by governments all over the western world: it was our most read piece of the week.

Topics covered included hard borders and soft Brexits, the Inspector General's report on the Hillary fix, Hamiltonian immigrants, chaste lawyers, and Italian bedfellows.

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

~On Wednesday the lamentations over "children being ripped from the arms of their mothers" overwhelmed the White House, and the President signed an executive order. Unlike the sob sisters elsewhere in the media, Mark and Tucker remained hard-hearted. Click below to watch:

~As the week drew to a close, Mark took his (temporary) leave, and revealed where the damages from his victory in the CRTV vs Steyn suit will be going.

For those of a legal bent, we have also provided a handy guide to CRTV founder Cary Katz's four (at the time of writing) lawsuits with Mark. We will update this page as Katz adds to his swelling number of cases against Steyn.

~For our Saturday movie date we welcomed the first ever guest writer in SteynOnline's fifteen-year history, Kathy Shaidle, with her take on a memorable Jerry Lewis moment from The King of Comedy.

Happy Father's Day to all our pops, pas and paters around the planet. We have a song for the season.

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

~The week began with an unusually optimistic anthem for these parts: "The sun'll come out Tomorrow."

~Mark's Monday Notebook included some thoughts on a highbrow De Niro, a lowbrow Trudeau, and a brow-beaten Britain.

Monday night is Tuesday morning in Singapore - and Steyn was live on air as the Trump and Kim motorcades departed for a momentous summit. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark considered the new Italian government, and the closure of their ports to a shipload of "refugees": it was our most read piece of the week.

~On Wednesday Steyn checked in with John Oakley at Toronto's Global News Radio 640 - about twenty minutes after a huge thunderstorm tore through town. Up for discussion were Trump, Trudeau, tariffs, and more. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday the Inspector-General's report on the behavior of senior FBI personnel was finally released. Steyn reviewed it on a lively edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight":

~On Friday in Toronto Mark was honored to receive from Canada's Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms the very first George Jonas Freedom Award. On Saturday, for our regular movie date, he chose Spielberg's travesty of a great Jonas book: Munich.

~Also for the weekend, we noted some Mark Steyn Show guests in the news: the university student determined to take down the thought police, the novelist who invaded a publisher's safe space, and the Quebecker out to slay a Canadian sacred cow.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, June 4-10

This coming Friday, June 15th, Steyn returns to his hometown of Toronto, to receive the very first George Jonas Freedom Award from Canada's Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms. (For any of our western New York readers, that's a zippy 90 minutes up the Queen Elizabeth Way from Buffalo.) George Jonas was a lifelong champion of liberty and a truly great Canadian, and Mark is honored and humbled by this inaugural award. You can find more details about the event here - and, if you enter STEYNCLUB18, you'll get 15 per cent off your ticket. We hope to see you there!

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

~The week began with Steyn celebrating the ninetieth birthday of a fine American composer and his peppiest song, "Put On a Happy Face".

Later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to chew over an amazingly awful interview with Bill Clinton.

~On Tuesday Miss America's head honcho Gretchen Carlson announced that henceforth there would be no swimsuit round. Mark considered that - and Miss Carlson's other campaign, to reign in forced arbitration.

~On Wednesday's brand new video edition of Mark's Mailbox, Steyn took questions from Mark Steyn Club members around the world on the EU's heads-we-win-tails-you-lose democracy, the left's embrace of the deep state, and Orwell vs Huxley. Click below to watch:

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

~On Thursday Mark guest-hosted America's Number One radio show as Trump and Trudeau re-enacted the War of 1812. Later he joined Tucker Carlson to discuss the media's admiration for the oeuvre of Stormy Daniels.

~On Friday, the G7 summit got underway, and Steyn, back for another three hours at the Golden EIB Microphone, provided play-by-play coverage of the on-again off-again Trump/Macron romance.

~For the weekend, Mark pondered the changing face of the anti-globalists, while our Saturday movie date remembered Eunice Gayson, the very first Bond girl.

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. (If you're thinking of coming on the Cruise, don't leave it too late, as the price is more favorable the earlier you book.)

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).

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week - and we hope to see you in Toronto on Friday.
