A Se’nnight of Steyn, May 20-26

Happy European Elections Day to our Continental readers and Happy eve of Memorial Day to our American readers. We will have observances of the former and analysis of the latter later today and tomorrow.

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

~The week began with a Steyn Club second-birthday live-performance edition of our Song of the Week with Mark talking to Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits about a hit all over the world. Click below to watch:

~Monday was a busy day for Steyn, with double duty on Rush and Tucker. He started with America’s Number One radio show, and then swung by “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to consider Robert De Niro’s call for the arrest and incarceration of Trump.

~Tuesday’s brand new edition of The Mark Steyn Show presented the second part of Mark’s in-depth interview with Deep State Target George Papadopoulos, including amazing tales of honey traps and money traps – and the tragic personal cost to George and his wife.

For Part One of Steyn’s Papadopoulos interview please see here.

~On Wednesday Mark previewed the release from prison of the American Taliban, John Walker Lindh. It was our most-read piece of the week. He also returned to The Rush Limbaugh Show to contemplate another year and a half of investigation without end.

~On Thursday Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to discuss Nancy Pelosi’s prayers for the President only to find that breaking news intervened.

~The week ended with a third appearance behind the Golden EIB Microphone – and the launch of our second-anniversary Tale for Our Time: Mark reads an E M Forster classic predicting the age of the Internet, The Machine Stops. To listen to Part One, click here. To listen to Part Two, click here.

Tales for Our Time is made with the support of The Mark Steyn Club, currently celebrating its second birthday. 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 adventure, but also Mark’s readings of Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Conrad, Kafka, Kipling, Gogol, Scott Fitzgerald, Jack London, Baroness Orczy and many more, all easily accessible from our brand new Netflix-style Tales for Our Time home page.

~Saturday’s edition of Mark’s Mailbox found Steyn answering questions from Club members around the planet on on the rise of the Brexit Party, the shame of Canada’s Afghan war “memorial”, the fetters of our betters, and other lively topics:

Later our weekend movie date celebrated the bicentennial of Queen Victoria with her ghillie and her munshi.

On this second birthday of The Mark Steyn Club, we’re delighted by all those who’ve decided to hop aboard for our third year. Stephen, a Wisconsin Club member, says:

Keep up the good and great and funny and brilliant and blithe and important work you do every day for us our country and our civilization.

Thank you, Stephen. We think you’ve pretty much covered it.

To mark our second birthday, and because our Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise has sold out, we’ve announced our Third Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise, with special guests Conrad Black, Douglas Murray and more.

A new week at SteynOnline begins this evening with the conclusion of The Machine Stops and our Memorial Day edition of Steyn’s Song of the Week.
