  • Jersey Sure (Mark Steyn 'Pinocchios' the Fact Checkers on Muslim 9/11 Celebrations)

    Steyn Online ^ | Tuesday, November 24, 2015 | Mark Steyn
    I have a strong dislike of the current fashion among American's decrepit and unreadable newspapers for "fact-checker" columns, because the practice attempts to cloak run-of-the-mill hacks in an aura of dispassionate authority that they do not, in fact, possess. Case in point: The Washington Post's Glenn Kessler, who has awarded "four Pinocchios" to Donald Trump, for claiming to recall seeing "thousands" of Jersey City Muslims celebrating on September 11th 2001. Mr Kessler wrote: Trump says that he saw this with his own eyes on television and that it was well covered. But an extensive examination of news clips from that...

    Rest in peace, Fred Thompson. He was a great American who lived a richer life than most of either his fellow senators or fellow actors. It was always fun when you'd stumble across him grilling someone on TV in that distinctive Tennessee drawl and it took you a moment to figure out whether it was a movie or a Congressional hearing. It happened to me a couple of months back when I came across the hugely enjoyable No Way Out with Kevin Costner, Sean Young, Gene Hackman ...and there's Senator Thompson doing his shtick as director of the CIA.

    Steyn divides his work into 12 chapters which contain, in total, 120 testimony segments. Almost all focus on damning observations about Mann’s methods, conclusions, and harassment of dissenting scientists -- many of whom are still in the anthropogenic global warming camp. Thus, the book isn’t a broadside against apocalyptic climate change per se but rather a barrage against Michael Mann, the inventor of global warming’s most effective propaganda icon --- the “hockey stick” diagram of global temperature. (Note: The diagrammatic “hockey stick” is lying flat with only the blade projecting upward to represent an unprecedented temperature rise in the last...

    As the week ended, Obama's palace guard in the American media were demanding that every other Republican candidate distance himself from Donald Trump's failure to correct, among thousands of attendees at his events, one who apparently is under the illusion that the President is a Muslim. Any candidate who plays this game with the Obamamedia is a fool. Assuming for the sake of argument that the questioner is genuine and not a plant (like, say, the 14-year old all-American schoolboy clockmaker who didn't make a clock at all and is the son of a belligerent Muslim activist and perennial Sudanese...

    On this 14th anniversary, I'm struck by how 9/11 seems something woozy and remote to almost anyone under 25 - in the way that, say, Pearl Harbor or D-Day, the Blitz or the Battle of Britain most certainly were not to those who were children in the late Forties, Fifties and Sixties. One obvious reason is the event's all but total absence from popular culture - which is curious for a day that played out on TV screens, at least in part, like a movie. But, as it turned out, there would be more films addressing the great cultural clash...

    Today I started the day with the great John Oakley on Toronto's AM640. He began with a soundbite of Donald Trump, meandering around wherever it was, after which we tried to pin down his appeal. Noting the differences between the US and the more fluid party systems of Canada (and pretty much everywhere else), I said that the permanently frozen institutionalized nature of the party system in America had led to a kind of "two-party one-party state". The problem with that is that it works fine for Democrats: When you say "Washington is broken" to liberals, they must wonder what...

    President Obama has wrapped up his tour of Africa. It was notable, insofar as that word can be applied to the trip, for his somewhat condescending and neo-colonial lecture to his hosts on the need to ease up on the old homophobia. Certainly, Africa is not terribly gay-friendly. But nor are other parts of the planet. In his ardent wooing of Iran, for example, he doesn't seem to have been perturbed in the least by his new best friends' executions of homosexuals, anymore than he is by the brutalization of gays elsewhere in the Muslim world. You might deduce in...

Yet the dead sloth that is the Republican Party has finally roused itself to spend the last 48 hours hammering Donald Trump for impugning the honor of John McCain. As his criminal-immigrant surge demonstrates, Trump's support comes almost entirely from Americans who feel the political class passes its time talking about nothing that matters to them.

A few minutes later, one of Bill's listeners, Claudine, came on and said that's what Germans reckoned in the 1930s: just keep your head down and the storm will pass. How'd that work out? Claudine...

    In a not terribly long life, I have known well three transsexuals (as we used to say), and another three not so well. Not because I especially sought out their company, but just because I've spent a lot of my time around theatre and music and areas that attract those who feel "different". Two of those three friends I didn't know were transsexual until they were "outed", one very publicly - although with hindsight certain curious aspects of both their physiognomy and behavior suddenly made a lot more sense.

The illustration is unclear: Is Mohammed forgiving the secular leftie blasphemers? Or are the secular lefties forgiving Mohammed and his murderous believers? The Commentator devotes an editorial to the subject, and finds it "a strange cover" symbolic of "western confusion". On the other hand, Paul Berman in The Tablet thinks "uncertainty lends majesty".

    Competitive Enterptise Institute | 11/25/14 | Sam Katzman, CEI general counsel
    Background (from Sam Katzman, Competitive Enterprise Institute general counsel) going into the hearing of 11/25/14: “Regardless of where one stands on global warming, this case is about the First Amendment. Michael Mann’s defamation lawsuit is an unfounded attempt to chill speech on a major issue of public concern. Professor Mann is a high-profile figure in the global warming debate, and he himself is responsible for much of the overheated rhetoric in that debate. His complaint about CEI’s criticism of his statistical methods belongs in the arena of public discussion and scientific inquiry, not in the courts. “This is precisely the...

    I've been off the Big Climate beat out promoting my new book this last fortnight, so when this came wafting into my in-box the other day I read it carefully three or four times just to be certain it wasn't an ingenious parody: Climate Depression Is For Real. Just Ask A Scientist. By "climate depression", they don't mean a low-pressure system off Labrador. Rather, the massed ranks of climate scientists are depressed because nobody's listening to them - well, nobody except President Obama, the Prince of Wales, the European Union, John Kerry, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jessica Alba, etc. Reporter Madeleine Thomas...

    On March 11th 1917, General Maude's British Indian army marched into Baghdad and took as prisoners almost 10,000 Ottoman troops. If you had to locate the birth of the modern, post-caliphate Arab world in a single event, that would be it. Over the next few years, London and Paris drew lines in the sand and invented the western Middle East, and the states we treat with today - Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia. The British certainly understand the significance of March 1917: When they returned to Baghdad to topple Saddam a decade ago, they named their new military headquarters in...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Mark Steyn, author of “The Undocumented Mark Steyn,” argued that culture is more important than elections, and that he liked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as someone who could shift American politics to the right in an appearance on Tuesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. Steyn stated “vision’s the important part. What's actually happening is that the kind of model of the social democratic welfare dependency state since the Second World War has run out of gas. It's over, and to persuade people to move off that model actually requires you to have a conversation with the people and change...

    On Wednesday morning, shortly before 10am, Corporal Nathan Cirillo of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders was murdered at Canada's National War Memorial in Ottawa. The killer was a recent Muslim convert, as was the killer of another Canadian soldier in St Jean-sur-Richelieu on Monday, and the killers of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich in South London. In a detail almost too absurd, the Ottawa jihadist turned out to be the son of Susan Bibeau, the Deputy Chairperson of the Immigration Division of Canada's Immigration and Refugee Board. Her (now ex-)husband was a "Libyan businessman".

    Many Americans seem to think that free speech and the First Amendment are synonymous. They're not: the former is a larger and more primal concept. But one consequence of that confusion is that, whenever free-speech questions arise, you always get a ton of emails droning, "There's no First Amendment issue here, Steyn. Mozilla/Brandeis/A&E/whoever is not the government. It's a private entity and is perfectly free to can its chief exec/disinvite Ayaan Hirsi Ali/suspend 'Duck Dynasty'/whatever if it wants to." Which is true as far as it goes, but doesn't address the core question of ugly thuggish identity-group enforcers remorselessly narrowing...

    As ISIS prepares to take the Turkish border city of Kobani, the new Caliphate's use of social media as a promotional tool (which is rather more effective than, say, the Democrats' or Justin Trudeau's) has begun to inspire what Obama would presumably call the jihad's junior "junior varsity" teams: Boko Haram, the extremist Islamic group, reportedly beheaded seven people Monday in Nigeria in revenge attacks, which were described by one resident as the way butchers "slaughter goats." From the report, you might get the impression that that's a figure of speech. But it's literally true. At the end of my...

  • Mark Steyn: No reason to believe GOP will ever repeal Obamacare

    National Review columnist Mark Steyn blasted claims by Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and others that the best strategy is to allow Obamacare to crumble under its own weight and only then seek to repeal it. Filling in as host on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show Monday, Steyn, author of “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon,” explained to a caller named “Joe” that there is no reason to believe congressional Republicans have the will to repeal anything, especially considering that Carter-era institutions like the Department of Education and the Department of Energy have managed to flourish even in times of...

    I was overseas when Obama gave his momentous Isis address, but figured I could pretty much guess how things would go. Despite being the greatest orator of the last thousand years, he's a complete bust at selling anything but himself, as comprehensively demonstrated in his first couple of years: see his rhetorical efforts on behalf of ObamaCare, or Massachusetts Senate candidate Martha Coakley, or Chicago's Olympics bid. When it comes to war, he suffers from an additional burden: before he can persuade anybody else, he first has to persuade himself. And he can't do it. So he gave the...

    They say I need to figure out what my readers want to read, and write that.  They say I’m supposed to get inside your heads and touch your emotions, hopes and fears.  They. You know, the experts.  People who know.  They say a lot of things.  Trouble is, I don’t listen to them.  Plus, my mind doesn’t work the same way as most people.  Really, it doesn’t. One of my few skills is writing computer programs.  I’ve been coding since I was 13, and that would warm Bill Gates’ heart, since coding is now considered a basic survival skill.  When...
