Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, September 9-16

Greetings from a bleary Mark Steyn Cruise crew, now back on dry land after a sold-out voyage to Alaska and with happy memories, not least of Michele Bachmann's stellar comedic turn as Lisa Page opposite Mark as Peter Strzok in Phelim McAleer's play FBI Lovebirds.

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

~The week began with a Song of the Week that came just in time, and the latest in Mark's series of video poetry: following President Trump's recent interest in a certain slab of Danish real estate, Steyn read and discussed James Montgomery's great work, Greenland.

Steyn's Sunday Poem is made with the support of The Mark Steyn Club. More details about the Steyn Club below.

~Monday's SteynPost considered the scramble for Europe. Click below to watch:

~Tuesday's edition of Laura's Links offered a smorgasbord of Internet delicacies from homophobic chicken to Swedish cannibalism.

~On Wednesday Steyn marked the eighteenth anniversary of 9/11, and the departure from the White House of National Security Advisor John Bolton.

~On Thursday Mark joined Tucker Carlson to review Hillary Clinton as Venetian performance artist:

~On Friday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions live from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on a range of topics from this week's Democrat debate to the merits of Anglo-Irish judges over Scots judges. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Saturday we concluded our marquee presentation for Mark Steyn Club members: the audio adaptation of the environmental bestseller Climate Change: The Facts. Click for Part Twenty-Two, Part Twenty-Three, Part Twenty-Four, Twenty-Five, Twenty-Six, Twenty-Seven and for yesterday's concluding installment.

Climate Change: The Facts is made with the support of The Mark Steyn Club. If you've a friend who's a bit of a warm-monger, we hope you'll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership.

~For our weekend movie date Mark remembered Peter Fonda's honeyed tones in Ulee's Gold.

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 thank you for all your kind comments about last week's Alaskan voyage. Maggie Schulz, a Maryland member of The Mark Steyn Club, writes:

My husband Paul and I had a marvelous time in Alaska with you, thank-you for making me laugh so hard I was crying with your Lisa [Page] and Peter [Strzok] skit not to mention the absolutely hilarious 'My Sharia Amour' song.

Thank you, Maggie. Michele Bachmann's performance as Lisa Page was a comic gem.

Maggie and Paul have already signed up for next year's Third Annual Steyn Cruise - and Michele will be back with us, too. 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 new week of print, audio and video delights begins tonight at SteynOnline with Steyn's Song of the Week.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, September 2-8

Greetings from the Mark Steyn Cruise, currently in spectacular Glacier Bay, and about to enjoy a climate apocalypse edition of The Mark Steyn Show with hockey-stick slayers Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick and WattsUpWithThat maestro Anthony Watts. (This ship has sailed, but there's always next year's Steyn Cruise - more details below.) Back on dry land, later today Mark will be presenting another entry in his series of Sunday Poems.

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

~The week began with our Labor Day/Labour Day observances as Steyn contemplated a world after work and celebrated a song of sweat and strain.

~On Labor Day itself, with Hurricane Dorian bearing down on Florida, Mark offered an audio cavalcade of the Sunshine State in music.

~Steyn's Tuesday Notebook looked at a particularly brazen example of Hollywood as one-party state: it was our most read piece of the week.

~Wednesday's edition of Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from pooped policemen to plucky Persians.

~Throughout the week the Mother of Parliaments endeavored to jump the shark with British Remainers' efforts to obstruct Brexit. On Thursday Mark considered the state of play in UK politics.

~Friday's edition of Mark's Mailbox found Steyn answering questions from Club members around the planet on everything from the barely impending trial of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to the standing down of stand-up comedy. Click below to watch:

Also on Friday, Robert Mugabe's rubber hit the road.

~At the weekend, after Kathy Shaidle's splendid summer series of film features, Steyn returned to his Saturday movie column with the prequel to Triumph of the Will & Grace.

Our marquee presentation for Mark Steyn Club members all week long was our audio adaptation of the environmental bestseller Climate Change: The Facts. Click for Part Fifteen, Part Sixteen, Part Seventeen, Eighteen, Nineteen, Twenty and Part Twenty-One. The latest episode airs today just before noon Eastern - that's 4pm Greenwich Mean Time.

Climate Change: The Facts is made with the support of The Mark Steyn Club. If you've a friend who's a bit of a warm-monger, we hope you'll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership.

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 Club Cruises. The current Second Annual Steyn Cruise has, alas, sailed, but we've announced our Third Annual Steyn Cruise, with special guests including Mark's favorite cruising presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, the Trump-pardoned Conrad Black, the fearless 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.

A new week at SteynOnline begins later today with our Sunday Poem and continues with Steyn's Song of the Week.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 26-September 1

Today is the eightieth anniversary of the German invasion of Poland, an act that precipitated the world into war and with whose consequences we live to this day. For our American and Canadian readers, it's respectively the Labor Day weekend and Labour Day weekend. We will have some observances for the holiday later at SteynOnline. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with the eightieth birthday of The Wizard of Oz, and a song that broke free of the movie.

~Mark spent Monday on TV and radio, starting off with three hours of guest-hosting on America's Number One radio show. Later he joined Brian Kilmeade on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to analyze the current state of the Democrat primary. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Steyn was back behind the Golden EIB Microphone for another guest-hosting stint. Later, the week's edition of Laura's Links caught up with some of the stories Mark missed, from a litigious babysitter to a transgender cricketer.

~On Wednesday Steyn wrapped up his run on "The Rush Limbaugh Show" with an interview with GOP Senate candidate Jason Lewis. While Hurricane Dorian barrelled through the Caribbean, Mark's Midweek Notebook looked at a merely metaphorical storm - the outrage over a pre-Brexit prorogation at Westminster - and a gathering one: the perverse Sino-American relationship.

~On Thursday Steyn returned to Tucker's show for a fully authenticated Joe Biden reminiscence:

~On Friday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions live from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on a range of topics from from the Inspector General's report on James Comey to where a Bond villain buys his clothes, via China's long game, Japanese robots, and submission to the Big Lie. You can listen to the full show here.

~For the weekend, Kathy Shaidle's Saturday cinema date celebrated movie moments that made you marvel - without benefit of CGI.

Our marquee presentation for Mark Steyn Club members was our audio adaptation of the environmental bestseller Climate Change: The Facts. Click for Part Eight, for Part Nine, Part Ten, Part Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen, and Part Fourteen. The latest episode airs today just before noon Eastern - that's 4pm Greenwich Mean Time.

Climate Change: The Facts is made with the support of The Mark Steyn Club. If you've a friend who's a bit of a warm-monger, we hope you'll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership.

This coming week's Second Annual Steyn Cruise has, alas, sold out, but we've announced our Third Annual Steyn Cruise, with special guests including Mark's favorite cruising presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, the Trump-pardoned Conrad Black, the fearless Douglas Murray and more.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 19-25

Mark will be starting the new week on America's Number One radio show. We hope you'll tune in! Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with Mark's return to The Greg Gutfeld Show, and with a George Harrison song that eventually escaped the elevator.

~On Monday, Steyn joined "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to analyze Elizabeth Warren's latest efforts to rehabilitate herself with her former fellow Indians. The pajama boys at The Daily Beast were, naturally, shocked. Click below to watch:

~Tuesday's edition of Laura's Links spanned the globe from Congressional anti-semites to transgender cricketers.

~On Wednesday's "John Oakley Show" Mark and John chewed over homophobic chicken in Toronto, the impending homecoming of Jihadi Jack, and President Trump's plans to buy Greenland. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday Steyn returned to TV to talk over the left's remorseless war on words:

~Mark ended the week as the scientifically proven Climate Change Contrarian Number Twenty-Two.

~For the weekend, Kathy Shaidle's Saturday movie date went film noir with a Fritz Lang classic, Scarlet Street. For more on Fritz Lang, see here.

Our marquee presentation for Mark Steyn Club members was our audio adaptation of the environmentak bestseller Climate Change: The Facts.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 12-18

It was a mostly on-camera se'nnight for Steyn this week, with spectacular ratings, night after night after night, by every available metric. But, if you prefer your entertainment in audio, we will be launching a new series - on climate change and what's really happening - right here later this morning.

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

~The week began with a centennial song from Sir George Shearing, and the grand conclusion of our latest Tale for Our Time, Steyn's serialization of Jerome K Jerome's comic classic Three Men in a Boat. Click here for the final episode - or, if you've yet to hear this latest of Mark's audio adventures, you can start at the beginning and have a good old binge-listen right here.

Tales for Our Time is made with the support of The Mark Steyn Club. If you've a friend who's a fan of classic fiction in audio, we hope you'll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership: They'll get to enjoy not only this latest yarn, but also Mark's readings of Conan Doyle, H G Wells and many more, all easily accessible from our Netflix-style Tales for Our Time home page.

~On Monday, Steyn was up early to join the curvy couch at "Fox & Friends", and then made his return to the anchor's chair at "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to analyze Joe Biden's gaffes, Democrat voter-outreach, a meat tax and the merits of welfare-dependent immigrants. But the big news of the day was the brazen fiasco of Jeffrey Epstein's purported suicide. Click below to watch:

~Tuesday found Mark doing double-duty on TV. First he joined Jedediah, Juan, Dana and Greg to co-host "The Five". Fredo figured heavily:

That edition of "The Five" turned out to be the third most-watched show on all American cable that day. A couple of hours later Steyn hosted the second most-watched show - "Tucker Carlson Tonight", featuring updates on everything from Epstein to ICE attacks.

~On Wednesday's "Tucker" Mark ran the gamut from increased leftist violence to unconvincing corn dog karaoke. Along the way Lisa Boothe addressed Alexandrio Ocasio Cortez's ability to attract donations from Hollywood and Silicon Valley - but not her own constituents:

In related AOC news, Steyn spoke to the latest target of her wrath - el presidente of Barstool Sports, Dave Portnoy:

~On Thursday's "Tucker" one Donald J Trump, on the ground in New Hampshire, did most of the heavy lifting.

~Friday's edition of Laura's Links spanned the globe from Ramadan rapping in Denmark to middle-school trans-propaganda in California - plus: why the left wants to take out Tucker Carlson. Later that day Jeffrey Epstein's autopsy report was very belatedly released, and Mark and Tammy Bruce chewed it over on TV that night.

~For the weekend, Kathy Shaidle's Saturday movie date celebrated a scientific breakthrough in which a man in midlife crisis remakes himself as Rock Hudson. Later, Mark, in very much non-Rock mode, pondered mayors on kiddie slides, anchors as celebrity effingrams, dog-lovers as chick-lovers, and taking your palm tree to the Palm Court, with Kat, Tyrus and Joe on The Greg Gutfeld Show. (The full show will re-air today, Sunday, at 5pm Eastern.)

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 Club Cruises. Our Second Annual Steyn Cruise has, alas, sold out, but we've announced our Third Annual Steyn Cruise, with special guests including the Trump-pardoned Conrad Black, the fearless Douglas Murray and more.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, August 5-11

Mark will be on your TV screen daily this coming week. We hope you'll join him, starting with "Fox & Friends" on Monday morning just after 8.30am Eastern (he'll be sticking around for the after-the-show show, too) and then a full hour later in the day in the anchor's chair at "Tucker Carlson Tonight".

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

~The week began with an operatic aria that spawned an entire sub-genre of pop songs.

~On Monday Mark made a long awaited return to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to ponder the evolution of socialism into triggered-happy non-binary jazz hands. Click below to watch:

~Tuesday's edition of Laura's Links spanned everything from Gillette's close shave with woke brokeness to (the suddenly late) Jeffrey Epstein's plans to spread the fruit of his loins around the planet.

~On Wednesday Steyn returned to Toronto's John Oakley Show to discuss the Democrats' exploitation of mass murder, and a hyper-litigious pseudo-tranny. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday's "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark and Brian Kilmeade mulled the boycotting of billionaires, the hunting of deplorables, and the self-abasement of Rosanna Arquette:

~On Friday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions live from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on a range of topics from whether America's "cold civil war" is turning hot to who should be lowering whose flag at the Brexit ceremony. You can listen to the full show here.

~For the weekend, Kathy Shaidle's Saturday movie date celebrated the best ever Catholic movie made by two Jews.

~Our marquee presentation all week long was Mark's latest audio adventure, his serialization of Jerome K Jerome's comic classic Three Men in a Boat. Click for Part Ten, for Part Eleven, Part Twelve, Part Thirteen, Fourteen, Fifteen and Part Sixteen - or, for a good old-fashioned binge-listen right from the beginning, please click here.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, July 29-August 4

The happiest of birthdays to Meghan, Duchess of Sussex today. To those of our readers in California, hope you're having a blessed Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month, which evidently is a thing some years.

Here's how the last week looked at SteynOnline.

~Mark kicked off the week with a column on Boris Johnson's unlikely rise to the United Kingdom's premiership.

~On Tuesday, we shared an excerpt from Steyn's After America about millennials – adults, to be clear – increasingly relying on their parents to cover basic living expenses. The excerpt clearly struck a nerve, as this was the week's most commented-on post.

~Wednesday brought us the latest edition of Laura Rosen Cohen's new feature, Laura's Links. This week, we got a free speech victory against Big Tech and a creepily cute wedding photobomb.

~The Saudi royal decree allowing women the right to travel without a male chaperone gave Mark the opportunity share his thoughts on Saudi Arabia from a couple of years back, when one of the thousands of Saudi princes died.

~Guest Mark at the Movies columnist Kathy Shaidle took on the 1960s chick flick Valley of the Dolls on Saturday, writing of the Sharon Tate flick that ended up remaining quite timely.

~All through the week, Mark's latest nightly serialization of Three Men in a Boat continued. We're up to part 9 of this newest Tale for our Time: stay tuned for part 10 this evening. Mark Steyn Club members can catch up by heading on over to our re-designed Tales homepage.

Full access to all of these serializations going right back to the beginning is one of the many benefits of Mark Steyn Club membership, including early access to Mark's events and commenting privileges on our articles, among other perks. It's not for everyone, but it keeps the content we provide here flowing. If you haven't yet joined, please do consider it. If you are a member, consider bringing someone else along with a Gift Membership.

Remember that the features you know and love at SteynOnline are also things you can experience live aboard our annual Mark Steyn Cruise. Our Alaskan cruise next month is sold out, but do come along for our Mediterranean voyage next year, which you can book here.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, July 22-28

We hope you're having a wonderful weekend thus far. Surely it's going better than it did 225 years ago for Maximilien Robespierre, guillotined alongside 22 others on this day in 1794. In more upbeat historic news, today also marks the 105th birthday of the foxtrot, which fortunately doesn't involve a guillotine. Nevertheless, here's how the last seven days looked at SteynOnline.

~Speaking of anniversaries, Mark started the week with a piece about the demi-centennial of Mary Jo Kopechne's fatal car ride with Ted Kennedy at Chappaquddick, which after 50 years the media still refuses to talk about.

~Anything about government debt is surely a dog-bites-man story, but Republicans-bite-taxpayers still warranted a mention if only as a reminder: on Tuesday we looked at a "compromise" reached by Democrats and the GOP to ignore the debt ceiling for the next two years.

~Laura Rosen Cohen's weekly link round-up went from the Jew-hating shrews of Congress to the cementing of getting your balls waxed as Canada's newest human right.

~Special Counsel Robert Mueller appeared, in body if not in mind, before congress this week to supposedly answer questions stemming from his never-ending investigation into Trump, and the infamous report that came from it. Because there was no real substance from Mueller, we made available the transcript of Mark's recent interview with Mueller probe victim George Papadopoulos (normally a Club member exclusive) which offered far more insight into what's been happening over the last two years than Mueller's testimony did.

~As we ushered in the weekend, guest film columnist Kathy Shaidle took a look at Nightmare Alley, the gritty and "God-haunted" noir film based on a novel by a "lifelong loser."

~This week, Mark launched a brand new Tale for our Time, Jerome K Jerome's Three Men in a Boat, selected, Mark says, "mostly for laughs but with a substantial dash of history." Part 3 of this 39th serialization will be coming this evening, but you can pick up parts 1 and 2 here and here.

This catches you up. An exciting new week lies ahead. If you want to enjoy all of the features of SteynOnline live and in person, you should join us aboard one of our cruises. We'll be setting sail for Alaska in just a few weeks on a sold out voyage, but are still taking bookings for next year's Mediterranean extravaganza with Conrad Black, John O'Sullivan and Michele Bachmann among others. You can also partake in all of the content year-round with a Mark Steyn Club membership. Going so gives you commenting privileges, access to content in any format, and several other Club member exclusives.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, July 15-21

Hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday. For our Singapore readers, a happy Racial Harmony Day, which is apparently a real thing. From 50 years since the moon landing to Lindsay Shepherd's expulsion from Twitter, here's how the last week looked at SteynOnline.

~The week started with the conclusion of Mark's most recent serialization, Erskine Childers' The Riddle of the Sands. If you missed the series or wish to go back and re-listen to any of it, you can do so at the new Tales for our Time homepage. All of our previous titles are there as well for Club members to peruse. Stay tuned for a new audio adventure in the coming weeks.

~Mark's Monday column took a look at the "warp speed" wokeness sweeping the American Left and the Democratic presidential primary.

~Mark's Canadian colleague Andrew Lawton returned Tuesday with a guest column about the Canadian and British governments' glitzy "media freedom" conference – replete with state censors and journalists being banned from press conferences, of course.

~Laura Rosen Cohen once again offered SteynOnline readers her round-up of stories you may have missed from around the internet. This week's list included Twitter's decision to vaporize Lindsay Shepherd's account for the purported crime of "misgendering." In case you missed it, Mark's interview with Lindsay from last year can be seen here.

~Continuing the week's woke theme, Mark Steyn Club member from Down Under Kate Smyth penned a piece about the corporate world's increasing desire for wokeness and political correctness over productivity and respect for employees' rights.

~The latest episode of The Mark Steyn Show dropped Friday, a compilation show starring Michele Bachmann and John O'Sullivan, filmed at sea aboard the inaugural Mark Steyn Cruise. The discussion looked at the clash between globalism and populism, and how this impacts immigration policy among other things.

~For this week's instalment of Mark at the Movies, Kathy Shaidle wrote about The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, a wartime film more about honor and civility than war.

If you enjoyed this week's episode of The Mark Steyn Show, you'll love the live version aboard our cruises. We've got another sold-out voyage coming up in September, but next year's Mediterranean cruise is still taking bookings and is set to be a blast, with special guests John O'Sullivan, Conrad Black, Douglas Murray and more to be announced soon. Our content is made possible by members of the Mark Steyn Club. If you haven't already joined, consider doing so and perhaps even buying a gift membership for a loved one.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, July 8-14

Bonne fête nationale to SteynOnline's readers in France. (That's Bastille Day to the rest of you.) Whatever you're storming today, may it be fruitful. Here's how the last week looked for Steyn.

~We inched further along this week to tonight's grand finale of the latest Tale for our Time, Erskine Childers' lone novel The Riddle of the Sands. If you haven't been following this serialization or have found yourself lagging behind, you can catch up on all the episodes of this or any of our previous Tales over here.

~On Monday, Mark's old Canadian chum Andrew Lawton of London, Ontario reported from London, England on the show trial of Tommy Robinson. A few days later, as both Andrew and Tommy predicted, the latter was sent to jail for nine months, after being, as the t-shirt he wore to his sentencing put it, "convicted for journalism."

~Stateside, Mark shared his thoughts on rise of gender-fluid Oreos and a few untimely passings in his Tuesday Notebook.

~In this week's edition of Laura's Links, internet trawler Laura Rosen Cohen shared how European swimming pools are the new no-go zones, as well as how to turn your baby into shawarma, which is cuter than it sounds.

~As America's Great Woke Democratic Primary® continues, Mark explored how the hair-splitting over the candidates' origins is overshadowing any crazy things like policy discussions.

~And if the space cadets seeking the Democratic nomination aren't far enough out of this world for you, last night's Mark at the Movies feature by guest columnist Kathy Shaidle delved into an underrated, interstellar cult classic, Galaxy Quest.

Our upcoming Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise has sold out, but, our first Mediterranean cruise slated for next year is already taking bookings. We'd love to have you along.

A new week at SteynOnline begins this evening with the conclusion of our latest Tale for our Time, made with the support of The Mark Steyn Club. If you've got a friend who's a fan of classic fiction in audio, we hope you'll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership: They'll get to enjoy Mark's audio archive, all easily accessible from our brand new Netflix-style Tales for Our Time home page.
