    At a rally in Great Falls, Montana Thursday evening, President Donald Trump threw down the gauntlet to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren: $1 million in exchange for proof of the aboriginal heritage she claimed to get special standing at Harvard. Trump even offered to do the cheek swab himself for one of those online DNA tests. With Mark away, we here at SteynOnline thought it would be a good time to share this piece about the potential Democratic presidential nominee for 2020 from page 27 of The [Un]documented Mark Steyn...The Massachusetts Democrat is Indian in the sense of checking the "Are...

    Mark is away, so this week's movie date is an encore presentation for Dominion Day weekend, first published last year on Justin Trudeau's fiasco of a sesquicentennial:On my native land's birthday, we surely ought to have a film on a Canadian theme. But what to choose? We used Denys Arcand's valentine to socialized health care for St-Jean-Baptiste Day. So I toyed with David Cronenberg's Crash, a film about, um, auto-eroticism in which everyone gets sexually aroused by multiple-car pile-ups on the QEW, which I've always assumed is some kind of metaphor for multiculturalism. Or perhaps John Greyson's Zero Patience, the...

This was somewhat astonishing to me, as I'd assumed empire-wide D-notices had lapsed with the passage of the Statute of Westminster. But mein hosts circled back, cautiously, to the topic toward the end of my interview - and I observed, as I have before, how in almost the entirety of the western world, whenever anyone draws attention to some of the more problematic aspects...

    As I think most persons paying attention now realize, the investigation into foreign interference with the 2016 election was created as a cover for domestic interference with the 2016 election.

    Well, today was the big day for Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, so it seems appropriate to offer a few Royal romances as our Saturday movie date. The most directly relevant movie, Royal Wedding, made in 1947, was set in London against the background of Prince Harry's grandparents' nuptials and starred Fred Astaire and an actress whose dad was an actual guest at the actual real-life wedding - Sarah Churchill, daughter of Winston. But I'll say a few words about that tomorrow night in our Song of the Week department, and today cast our net a...

    Frank Sinatra died twenty years ago - May 14th 1998. We'll pick out a few musical moments later tonight, but first, as a curtain-raiser and as a Mark at the Movies Sunday bonus, here's a look at Sinatra's film career. He was a memorable actor - and, as Sammy Cahn liked to say, that isn't even what he does: When he died in 1998, the Italians came out for Frank. Robert De Niro said not a day passed when he didn't listen to Sinatra, Martin Scorsese that Sinatra made it possible for all the rest of them - the guys...

    Mark Levin and his "Great Patriot" (Cory Katz) How CRTV is trying to avoid paying Steyn's Lawsuit Win CRTV is pulling a fast one to get out of its legal obligations. Katz admitted to it before hand, seems criminal to me. Levin seems to be a pit. ...Cary Katz vs CRTV LLC is, in fact, Cary Katz vs Cary Katz. If you read Judge Gordon's final order, you quickly understand that Cary Katz is CRTV and CRTV is Cary Katz: He's not only the sole investor, and spent two days on the stand testifying as CRTV's principal witness, but he...

    As I wrote a few days ago, I had minimal expectations of Chappaquiddick The Movie, which opened last week despite the best efforts of the Kennedy family and their various retainers and enablers. I have always been revolted by the fact that Ted, after killing Mary Jo Kopechne, did not have the decency to do a John Profumo and retire from public life for the rest of his days - and I was even more revolted by the way Massachusetts voters did not have the decency to impose that choice upon him. But utter contempt for your protagonist doesn't make...

    John Bolton turned up on Fox about an hour before I did last night, and professed to be surprised by the sudden Tweeting of his appointment as US National Security Advisor. The Beltway insiders allege that it was rushed out to distract from Trump's cave-in on the 2,232-page Schumer-Pelosi Early-Christmas-For-Big-Bloated-Budget-Busting-Bureaucracy Bill that not a single person on this planet has actually read. Oh, and don't give me that "increased funding for our troops" straw-clutching: every sentient creature from the earthworm up knows that the extra dough's just going to go to diversity programs and gender reassignment surgery as opposed to...

    A Happy St Patrick's Day to all our Irish readers at home and abroad. Leaving New York after my telly exertions last night, I got momentarily caught up in the parade line-up, but managed to extricate myself before having to sing "If You're Irish, Come Into the Parlor". But enough about me; what could be more Irish than Hillary Clinton? Three years ago she was inducted into the "Irish America Hall of Fame". I'm not sure I'd ever heard of that until today, but as an authentic son of Erin I strongly object to the Hall of Fame helping Hillary...

    I wrote a week ago of the extraordinary detention and deportation by British authorities of three law-abiding middle-class persons from Austria, America and Canada - for the crime of wanting to speak at a free-speech event. This in a country where, as Douglas Murray explained to me last week on TV, Ahmed Hassan, an Iraqi teenager who informed immigration officials that he'd trained with Isis, was fast-tracked into Britain, and its public welfare system, and went on to detonate a nail bomb on the London Tube. Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone and Lauren Southern have no wish to detonate nail bombs,...

    Exactly one week ago, at the Academy Awards, Best Actress winner Frances McDormand put the phrase "inclusion rider" into general circulation - and Matthew McWilliams, a first-day Founding Member of The Mark Steyn Club, wrote to propose one of those all-star medleys the Oscars used to do so well: Perhaps, Inclusion Rider (by Traffic), Inclusion Riders on the Storm (by The Doors), Midnight Inclusion Rider (by the Allman Brothers Band) and Low Inclusion Rider (by War). I'm open to other suggestions. Fellow Club member Bob Belvedere took up the challenge: All good choices. Perhaps, also: CC Inclusion Rider [by Chuck...

    I've written many times over the last decade and a half about that rare bird the "moderate Muslim". Surely one reason for his scarceness is that, whenever he pops his head above the parapet, he's hung out to dry by craven infidel politicians and bureaucrats, who on the whole find the admirably straightforward demands of your average firebreathing imam more congenial. Hence the pandering to returning Isis warriors: Mods vs Raqqa's - it's no contest. The latest examples are the headmistress and chairman of the board of governors of St Stephen's Primary School in Newham, East London. St Stephen, you'll...

    Ida Lupino was born one hundred years ago this month - February 4th 1918, in Herne Hill, south London - and, insofar as she's remembered in today's Hollywood, it's in a kind of special-pleading way: She was "the first female director". Wow! Awesome! So she, like, shattered the glass ceiling? Well, yes, she did: The Hitch-Hiker (1953) is regarded as the first "mainstream" female-helmed movie; when television took off, she was the only woman asked to direct episodes of "The Twilight Zone". On set her director's chair bore the designation "MOTHER OF US ALL", and the transcript of her off-camera...

    One of the sadder aspects of recent revelations has been having to confront the glum reality that real-life national security capers are nowhere near as cool as their movie equivalents. For example, as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton kept her nation's secrets in a server in some guy's toilet in an apartment in Colorado. I'd just seen Mission: Impossible 12 or whatever it was in which half the screen time is devoted to figuring out how Tom Cruise is going to break in to the secure computer facility. In real life, all you need is a plumber's get-up. I was...
