    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...

    Well, the memo was released. You can read it in full here, and I recommend you do so because, on the evidence of much of Friday's TV and radio coverage, most commentators only want to talk about it in the most shallow political terms. Whereas the questions it raises about state corruption in an age of round-the-clock technological surveillance are far more profound. Let's start with something I wrote back in October: It seems a reasonable inference, to put it as blandly as possible, that the [Christopher Steele] dossier was used to justify the opening of what the Feds call...

    Hope you're having a good weekend. Despite the absence of government, Media-ite continue their strange obsession with me, including this very flaccid hit piece (with some rather touching comments). Doesn't anybody know how to write over there? As the President would say: Sad! This weekend is the first anniversary of the inauguration, which we shall commemorate in today's movie feature later. It's also the twentieth anniversary of a turbulent weekend in Washington, culminating in the launch down the catway of Monica Lewinsky's little black dress. The drama of January 1998 put certain words and phrases in the public discourse for...

    So we're in for another bit of high-stakes shutdown theatre, as evil moustache-twirling Republicans (it's always Republicans, even when it's Democrats) strap the lovely damsel of Big Government to the tracks just as the Friday midnight express is rounding the bend. At his press conference today, however, Mick Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, said that this time round they'd be working to minimize the impact of the shutdown - whereas, last time round, for political reasons, the White House set out to maximize it. Mr Mulvaney called this "weaponizing the shutdown" - which the Obama Administration...

    Stabbings in the news. First from Sweden: Gothenburg Man Suspected Of Killing Australian Appears In Court And Vermont: Burlington Man Charged With Motel Machete Attack And Ireland: Dundalk Stabbing Victim Was Japanese And one more, from Germany: The teenage girl died of her injuries after the 15-year-old boy stabbed her with a kitchen knife in Kandel. There's rather a lot of this nowadays, don't you find? Hard to keep up. I try to winnow it down by only following stabbings in towns I've been through in the last two years. In 2016 I spoke to some "Syrians" in Kandel, a...

    Given the ongoing furor over President Trump's executive order commanding the State Department cartographer to mark the map of the world with "Here be sh***holes", I thought for our Saturday movie date we should have a film about just how bad it can get. Twenty-four years ago, the Rwandan genocide was just about to get under way: In a hundred days, a million people were murdered - with machetes, all very low-tech. Since then, as I noted only the other day, the machete has been introduced to such boring white-bread places as Shelburne, Vermont, and Dundalk, Ireland, and Gothenburg, Sweden,...

    Churchill is an abidingly popular role with big-time actors once the receding hairline and expanding girth of middle-age set in. Sometimes the player is too evidently suited to the part - one thinks of Robert Hardy on telly in the Eighties - and the jowly gravitas gets clanked around as if Winnie wandered Chartwell and Westminster in never-was-so-much-owed mode 24/7. On the literal face of it, the man who brought both Sid Vicious and Commissioner Gordon to the silver screen is one of the least obvious cinematic Winstons ever, and he wears his lavish prosthetics with a very light touch....
