I thought today I'd talk about things here in America that seem odd to me and the fact that they don't seem odd to many other people is kind of disturbing and even odder to me. I want to start with the most basic thing because there've been new revelations in the last couple of days about the so-called Russia investigation. The Russia investigation is a bit like that bit in the beginning of the Godzilla movie ...

If you prefer the print version, here's the transcript. This is a poem I think about a lot. And I wish I thought about it more a decade and a half back in the heady rush of those first post 9/11 military victories in Afghanistan and Iraq before they curdled into the slow bleed of thankless occupation, when a leathery gap toothed old fella from what was it, Najaf? Newly liberated from Saddam Hussein was asked what America meant to him and beaming he responded, "Democracy, whiskey, sexy." A decade after the fall of the Soviet Union America was the hyper power in ...

MARK STEYN: More than a decade and a half after 9/11, the mastermind of that murderous attack on the US mainland, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, sits in rather comfortable accommodations at American taxpayer expense in Guantanamo Bay. Apparently it now takes four times the length of the First World War just to bring one war criminal to trial, never mind hanging. In the 14 years since KSM, as they call him, was captured in Rawalpindi, my next guest got to know him better than anyone else in the western world, and he's now written a fascinating book on how he got to know him and other ...

It is a great poem. It was at one time, I don't know whether it still is or not, and I dread to think what might have supplanted it, but it was at one time the most anthologized poem in the English language. It's mentioned in a lot of other books too, including in one of mine, America Alone, and also in Ray Bradbury's brilliant novella set in a world where books are burned, ...

And I could only get to a couple of dozen of them so I thought I'd pick out some for ...

I was thinking about President Trump's speech in Warsaw the other day, which had the immense benefit of driving the entire American media nuts in their reaction to it. And as enjoyable as that was, it actually distracted from the content of the speech. And one of the things that was interesting to me was that Trump's defense of Western Civilization was predicated on what he called faith and family. And that's ...

His stirring message is en marche, which means forward. Which is a perfectly empty yet supposedly optimistic and future oriented slogan could hardly be better. But in fact for most people, when they're in the voting booth, they're voting on the world they live in. And ...

I think that was the fascinating rhyme and it struck me that the Bruce Springsteen as I understand it is a big wealthy Hollywood mega celebrity but he is supposedly the poet of the gritty urban blue collar America that he has hymned in songs such as Allentown about Allentown, Pennsylvania.

One hundred years ago, April the sixth, the United States entered the war ...some three years after everyone else had got going.

I really haven't got anything to say that I haven't said going back to Beslan, and Bali and 9/11 at the dawn of the century. What is there more to say?

They try to tell us we're too old...and they do. At Election Day, the Left's view is that the Right is old and dying and on its way out essentially. The Democrats in the U.S. believe in what they call the coalition of the ascendant. Hispanics, gays, Muslims, the transgendered.

You remember eight years ago, trillion became normalized. Trillion was a word that until United States debt rampaging out of control was a word that was only applied to astronomy, such and such a planet was so many trillion light years from Earth. That was the only activity in which you needed the word trillion. When you need trillion for government budgeting, you got a big problem. Pay close attention when a deeply weird ...
