  • Mark Steyn: Hillary Presidency Will Make US 'Banana Republic'

    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. "To decide for someone on the take from...

    Happy Independence Day to our Paraguayan readers. Tomorrow, Monday, Mark will be starting the week behind the Golden EIB Microphone, guest-hosting for Rush on America's Number One radio show, live from 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. We hope you'll tune in either on one of 600 radio stations across the US or via iHeartRadio livestream or your Rush 24/7 subscription. And, if you miss Monday's show, he'll be back for a second stint on Tuesday.

    Almost everyone who’s been in a movie theater over the last half-century is familiar with the great iconic image that closes the film Planet of the Apes: a loinclothed Charlton Heston falling to his knees as he comes face to face with a shattered Statue of Liberty poking out of the sand and realizes that the “planet of the apes” is, in fact, his own—or it was. In fact the shattering of Lady Liberty recurs throughout popular culture, as the most easily recognizable shorthand for civilizational ruin: most recently, in the eco-apocalyptic film The Day After Tomorrow, the Statue of...

    When it comes to querying the benefits to the west of semi-Islamization, Trevor Phillips packs more of a punch than most of us. First, he's black, which shouldn't matter but does. 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. Now, in a new Channel 4 documentary with an accompanying poll of...

That could be the headline on every one of these stories: Brussels, and Paris, and Copenhagen, and the Cologne rapes and Charlie Hebdo and all the rest. But no matter how high the pile of corpses climbs the question never gets asked - nor does the natural follow-up: Why do we continue to import it?

    A few horse-racey thoughts before Super Tuesday. To pre-empt the usual objections, let me emphasize that what follows concerns itself not with my personal preferences but with what is electorally likely: ~Donald Trump seems set for a pretty super day, winning at least ten of the twelve states, and more likely eleven, or possibly a full sweep. 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. But a ten-state victory for Trump will still be a...

    Thank God that's over. You don't have to be an Amtrak conductor to want to punch the next guy who says, "There are three tickets out of Iowa." In the end, Ted Cruz won eight delegates and Donald Trump seven. Which doesn't sound so bad for Trump. Except that Marco Rubio also won seven delegates. Had the caucus been held 24 hours later, Rubementum might have pushed Trump to third place. There's no point pretending it wasn't a setback for the billionaire party-crasher. Who knows why it happened? Perhaps he should have taken his own advice and shot a guy...

Opening paragraph:Most people reading this have strong stomachs, so let me lay it out as baldly as I can: Much of what we loosely call the Western world will not survive this century, and much of it will effectively disappear within our lifetimes, including many if not most Western European countries.

I think the opposite is true. Trump has essentially sat out these stupid ten-man TV debates and then resumed his rise once they're over. If it came down to a four- or three- or two-man race, the man I saw on Thursday night would be a formidable debate opponent. And I don't doubt he could hold his own against Hillary. We got a preview of that last night. Having endured "these...

    The British Home Secretary, Theresa May, was a little behind the curve when she reacted to the bloodbath in Paris by insisting that "the attacks have nothing to do with Islam".

In the United States, the most senior members of the Democrat establishment are taking it to the next level.

Great work, Republican establishment! Looks like we're gonna need a bigger tampon. The sheer stupidity of the last 48 hours ought to be embarrassing to any self-governing people. Once the fake-o vapors of the Age...

    I'll be keeping my Thursday date with Hugh Hewitt this afternoon, live coast to coast at 6pm Eastern/3pm Pacific. If I understand things correctly, that means, Republican candidate-wise, I'll be in the intermission between the kids'-table debate and the main event. So who knows how things will stand by then. But, if my analysis proves useless, I'll take another crack at it tomorrow, Friday, with Sean Hannity on Fox News.~I will say this, however: If you were to vaporize Donald Trump, what's left would be a disturbingly inadequate frontrunner. As readers know, I'm not a fan of Jeb Bush's...

    Senator Harry Reid and taxpayer-funded baby-parts mogul Cecile Richards. The fifth in an apparent series of twelve Planned Parenthood undercover videos shows Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discussing how to manipulate the abortion procedure in order to ensure the "fetus" is delivered "intact" and thus able to be cannibalized for body parts. As Ms Farrell puts it, if a client "has a specific need for a certain portion of the products of conception and we bake that into our contract, and our protocol, that we follow this. So we deviate from our standard in order...

    Columnist and author of “The Undocumented,” Mark Steyn said Donald Trump’s rise in the polls shows “the voter base of the Republican Party absolutely hates the Republican Party leadership and establishment” on Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

    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...

    A heady bouquet: "Dr" Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Research, explains over a nice cabernet how to evacuate an intact calvarium. If abortion were the respectable medical procedure its proponents insist it is, there would be no such thing as "Planned Parenthood", anymore than there is a Planned Hernia megacorp. We are told constantly that abortion is a very teensy-weensy, barely statistically measurable, all but undetectable micro-sliver of the wide range of "women's health" services Planned Parenthood provides. So it only does an estimated third of a million abortions per year - or about as many abortions...

    We are cursed, as the Chinese say, to live in "interesting times", about which there is much to say - the Iran deal, for example, or the Allaku Akbar guy running amok in Chattanooga. 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. So feel free to spend the weekend talking about John...
  • Steyn: Comparing Obama To Neville Chamberlain Is Unfair To Chamberlain

    Columnist and author of “The Undocumented,” Mark Steyn argued comparing President Obama to Neville Chamberlain is “rather unfair to Neville Chamberlain” on Tuesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. Steyn said of comparisons between Obama and Chamberlain, “I think actually that’s rather unfair to Neville Chamberlain, Sean. He got the central question of the 1930’s wrong, but he was an honorable man, who believed he was acting in the interests of his country and the British Empire which he loved.

    So, no, since you ask, I didn't have that Glorious a Fourth. I almost wrote about it yesterday, but was too sad to find the appropriate tone. I'm still very sad, so if you want to cut to the chase and get on with your day, the takeaway is America might as well hang a sign on its door saying, "Final Three Days! Everything Must Go!!! Ultimate Storewide Blowout!!!!!" As readers may know, the Steyn worldwide corporate headquarters is located in Woodsville, which is part of the township of Haverhill, New Hampshire. Actually, the only reason readers would have any...

    I started the day on Bill Bennett's radio show, which is always fun. Jonah Goldberg was on before me, and advanced the proposition, after the Supreme Court's almighty constitutional bender last week, that it wasn't so bad; conservatives who just pottered around in their own world and tended to their families would still be able to lead lives largely unbattered by the forces of "progress". 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...
