    Christmas in Ludwigshafen: Waiting for the first Nol, and the first nail... Over the summer, I met a lady from southern Germany who had found herself on the receiving end of some vibrant multicultural outreach from one of Mutti Merkel's boy charmers. As a result, she no longer goes out after dark. She had also decided - with reluctance, because she enjoyed it - to cancel her participation in a local Christmas market, where she'd sung carols every year - in broad daylight. "Why would you do that?" I asked. "Because it's Christmas," she said, "and I'm worried Christmas will...

    After a brief trip out of the country, I return to find America's elites playing some sort of Chinese Whispers drinking game with a vat of anti-freeze. Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, has doubled down on his accusation that Donald Trump was in on Putin's "hacking" of the election. In fact, the only presidential nominee who knew of it was Barack Obama, who had it brought to his attention over a year ago, back when the experts were assuring us that Trump wouldn't make it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Obama kept the news of Putin's alleged hacking...

    I mentioned yesterday that the media were still having difficulties explaining what happened on November 8th to their aghast and distraught readers. But it's getting ever more difficult to make a living arguing that Trump is Hitler: after all, every melting snowflake in every collegiate safe space can tell you that. So how about Trump is British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn?Trump And Corbyn Have More In Common Than You ThinkOn the other hand:Liberace And Donald Trump Have A Lot In CommonDoes that mean Liberace and Jeremy Corbyn have a lot in common?

    Who knows when Fidel Castro actually kicked the bucket? But this weekend his brother decided to let us in on the secret. His presidential term lasted, gosh, an awfully long time, as The New York Times reminded us: Fidel Castro had held on to power longer than any other living national leader except Queen Elizabeth II. That's one way of putting it. But in the end, when it comes to ruthlessly holding on to power, no one can compete with Her Majesty, and so that piker Castro got relegated to second place, while millions of English, Canadians, Jamaicans, Bahamians, Barbadians,...

    Sabha is a city in the south of what remains of Libya after Hillary ("We came, we saw, he died") Clinton was done with it. Last week, a pet monkey belonging to a shopkeeper from the Gaddadfa tribe pulled the head scarf off one of a group of passing schoolgirls from the Awlad Suleiman tribe. The outraged menfolk of the girls did not take it well. So far, sixteen people are dead plus the monkey. ~Tribalism is a subtler affair in the United States.

    Twelve months ago, Paris was awash in blood. No, not the Bastille Day massacre - that was in Nice. Not the Charlie Hebdo slaughter - that was a few months earlier. Not the throat-slitting of the priest during Mass - that was a few months later. It becomes harder to separate and distinguish the provocations, but this was (for the moment) the bloodiest. A year ago, I was angry and bitter and weary:As I write, Paris is under curfew for the first time since the German occupation, and the death toll from the multiple attacks stands at 158, the vast...

I went first: Steyn appeared via remote from London on Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity." He pointed to Big Ben over his shoulder, saying, "The only reason the House of Parliament exists is that 800 years ago King John was forced to sign the Magna Carta that said even a king has to bow to the law.

    Happy Halloweiner, the night when Anthony Weiner's undead penis rises from its grave to bite Hillary's campaign. The stroking dead is apparently impervious to silver bullets or garlic, and unlike vampires it does show up in photographs, on cell phones across the globe. So in the final week of the campaign the plot twists arrange themselves in a remarkably straightforward manner. The FBI is investigating the Clinton Foundation - because it's a criminal enterprise: if you give a million bucks to the the Clintons' charity, sixty grand goes to charity and the remaining 940,000 goes to fund the lifestyles of...

    Happy Halloweiner, the night when Anthony Weiner's undead penis rises from its grave to bite Hillary's campaign. snip Huma and Weiner are so close to the Clintons that they were (see picture above) married by Bill. To the casual observer, Mr Weiner was merely the Mini-Me to Bill Clinton's distinguishing characteristics. Alas, he lacked the Clintons' luck, and never enjoyed the same level of protection. It's not unreasonable to conclude that, somewhere in the latter stages of this bumpy half-decade descent, Anthony Weiner decided it might be prudent to have an insurance policy.Weiner is an ambitious man with apparently insatiable...

    Just ahead of tonight's final debate (from which I shall be several thousand miles away): As I've said for years - on radio, TV and in print - for me the overriding issue in American politics is the corruption. In the Obama era, we have seen the remorseless merging of the party and the state - in the IRS, in the Justice Department and elsewhere. Whatever one feels about, say, Scandinavia, they at least come to their statism and socialism more or less honestly. Not so the United States. It's bad enough that Democrats aren't agitated about this corruption -...

(Do check out the first part of the series, the second part, the third and the fourth.) In today's Toronto Sun, Andrew Lawton pays his own anniversary tribute:I've never seen Steyn chant "I told you so." In fact, it appears to sadden him how right he was more than it brings him any sense of delight. "America Alone" catapulted Steyn from an observer of the decline of freedom into a victim of it.

    Conservative columnist Mark Steyn on Monday said that "nominal Republicans" who say they will vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton over presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump for president are acting "insane." Steyn, guest hosting on "The Rush Limbaugh Show," was especially disappointed with two of his friends, satirist P.J. O'Rourke and Max Boot, who was Steyn's editor at The Wall Street Journal. The two have said they would vote for Clinton instead of Trump over foreign policy issues. "Hillary is the embodiment of corruption and, therefore, the death of the republic," Steyn said.

    The internet represents an extraordinary opportunity for democracy. Yet despite the scientific consensus that global warming is real and primarily due to human activity, studies show that only about half the population in some countries with among the highest CO2 emissions per capita understand that human beings are the driving force of our changing climate. Even fewer people are aware of the scientific consensus on this question. Climate Feedback intends to change that. It brings together a global network of scientists who use a new web-annotation platform to provide feedback on climate change reporting. For the first time, Climate Feedback...

Second, he's the former head of Britain's Equality and Human Rights Commission, one of those identity-group grievance bodies which made such considerations matter (as did the Commission for Racial Equality, which Mr Phillips previously chaired). Third, he's the guy who introduced the word "Islamophobia" into the English language, in a celebrated report on "discrimination" two decades ago.

    Today Britain goes to the polls to vote in the European elections. Nigel Farage has had a rough ride, to the point where a casual observer might easily assume the election was being fought between Farage's UKIP and a Tory-Labour-Liberal-Media coalition. That's apparently not the case. There are four main choices for voters, notwithstanding the media's wish to make it a referendum on Farage's "racism". According to some of the public polling, that may have done some last-minute damage. According to the internal polling, maybe not: Labour and Conservative polling is showing that attacks claiming Nigel Farage is a racist...

The exceptions are Ted Cruz's home state of Texas (where there is conflicting polling evidence) and perhaps, if you cling to the pre-Nevada conventional wisdom about Trump's organizational weakness in caucus states, Minnesota.

    HH: But we begin, and how appropriately so, on the first live show of 2014 with Columnist To the World, Mark Steyn. Hello, Mark, Happy 2014. MS: Hey, yeah, Happy New Year, and congratulations on the book, Hugh. Its the perfect match of author and subject, because you are the optimistic man. And I sometimes feel that leads you a little bit astray on the political field, but this is perfect terrain for you, all the important stuff. HH: Well, whenever I start to go like the floating uncle in Mary Poppins, I go get my After America book down...

    ...~In this Christmas season, what we used to call Christendom is sad and diminished, led by a fatuous social-justice pope and a European political class that has doubled down on civilizational suicide. Here is a small but telling story of the new France: NICE, France – Valérie Aubry-Dumont got the news in a WhatsApp message from deep inside Islamic State territory. "Mom, you're going to be a grandmother," wrote her teenage daughter, Cléa. When Aubry-Dumont last saw her daughter, Cléa was a 16-year-old girl attending Catholic school in a Paris suburb. After a breakup, Cléa met a young man online...

    Mark Steyn went down to the Senate to testify about Warmunism to a bunch of Democrats who can barely read a thermometer, but know how to repeat, "Scientists say" until everyone falls asleep. Eventually Mark got tired of it and got into an exchange with Senator Ed Markey. Back when Markey ran for office, he tried to take credit for smartphones, eBay, Facebook and Twitter. So you know he knows what he's talking about. Markey has a set of talking points and no idea what he's talking about. He's been trained to chant, "Scientists say" even if he can't...

    I've received many letters like this about my appearance last week in the United States Senate: Dear Mr. Steyn: I've been following the reports on your appearance to give Senate testimony, and the troubles you and other witnesses encountered there. I don't want to pretend that I'm any kind of expert in such matters, but it was my impression going in that the hearings were Senator Cruz's idea, and that you were his invitee. If so, how were the proceedings commandeered by Sen. Markey in the manner that your posts suggest? Sincerely, Thomas Evans Well, Markey didn't "commandeer" the proceedings....

    Man made global warming climate change isn’t a thing. So stop trying to make it a thing. Human beings cannot control the weather. Get over yourselves. The eco-tote bag might make you feel warm and tingly inside, but you’re not changing anything. Ego much?You know who else is calling BS on man made global warming climate change? Mark Steyn and Ted Cruz (who also embarrassed the President of the Sierra club about global warming). In just under four minutes they destroy the stupid 97 percent of scientist crap and the entire global warming premise. You’re welcome.Mark Steyn and Sen. Cruz...

    Even before it began, Sen. Ted Cruz’s subcommittee hearing Tuesday challenging the accuracy and objectivity of the science behind climate doomsday scenarios drew a heated rebuke from Senate Democrats.“We need to stop debating whether climate change is real. The science is settled, and Senator Cruz is out of touch,” said Sen. Tom Udall, New Mexico Democrat. “The American people want action. Most of Congress wants action. We need to work together and lead the world in...”Mr. Cruz — the Texas Republican who heads the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Space, Science and Competitiveness — said at the hearing that “public policy...

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today examined the “inconvenient truth” surrounding the debate over how to interpret climate science data in a hearing titled “Data or Dogma?

    As I write, Paris is under curfew for the first time since the German occupation, and the death toll from the multiple attacks stands at 158, the vast majority of them slaughtered during a concert at the Bataclan theatre, a delightful bit of 19th century Chinoiserie on the boulevard Voltaire. The last time I was there, if memory serves, was to see Julie Pietri. I'm so bloody sick of these savages shooting and bombing and killing and blowing up everything I like - whether it's the small Quebec town where my little girl's favorite fondue restaurant is or my favorite...
