Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, November 16-22

Today, Sunday, Mark starts the day with Will, Jedediah and Pete live across America on "Fox & Friends" at 9am Eastern/6am Pacific. We hope you'll tune in.

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

~The week began with Mark musing on the rush to deprive Trump of his legal representation: It was our most read piece of the week.

Later on Sunday, by way of contrast, he celebrated a glorious standard, now and forever.

~On Monday Steyn returned to the Golden EIB Microphone on America's Number One radio show and, amidst the news of the day, addressed the underlying reality of what's going on everywhere from Twitter and WordPress to the streets and al fresco restaurants of the national capital. Click below to listen:

~On Tuesday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show Mark pondered the globalists' increasing confidence that, in one fell swoop, they've seen off Trump, Brexit, and populism worldwide. There was also another edition of The Hundred Years Ago Show, with news of the Russian civil war, Irish uprisings and teenage train robberies, plus the toll of Covid on African strongmen, English serial killers, and Eurovision also-ranss.

~Friday's weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show featured an update on the Trump lawyers' campaign, and on the Dominion of Canada's Dominion voting machines, made strictly for export. Mark also considered the competing merits of sinister algorithms versus violent transgender mobs. The Brit Wanker Copper of the Day pantheon enlisted another antipodean constabulary to its elite ranks, and Steyn slouched reluctantly towards W B Yeats.

~On Saturday Kathy Shaidle's movie date was a Bette Davis classic: Now, Voyager.
