    I mentioned with Tucker the other night the condescension of Gentleman Jim Acosta, who airily presumes that, if you're a woman, any woman, you believe the accuser and assume this Kavanaugh guy is a serial gang-rapist. That's how it goes: Identity politics makes moron cultures of formerly sophisticated societies. So it was inevitable that when a picture from yesterday's hearing popped up, of the judge with three females sitting behind him, the wankerati of Twitter immediately assumed that they were just three regular all-American women staring in disgust at the rape beast of Bethesda. In fact, they were Kavanaugh's wife,...

    Happy Constitution Day to all our American readers. Brett Kavanaugh's high school years continue to roil Washington. Charles C W Cooke concludes: "Unfair as it may be, the core calculation now will not be whether the charges are true (we don't know) or whether the timings and assumptions are fair (they are not), but what the various players consider the least dangerous course politically." Oh, my. To modify my old gag from the Obama years, Republicans are so good at folding they should be Chuck Schumer's valet. If you were Judge Kavanaugh, would you want to bet your future on...

    We hope our many readers on the Carolina coast are safe and well or, better yet, snug and cozy this weekend as Hurricane Florence batters the shoreline, and all residents within one mile of the Cape Fear River are ordered to evacuate. For most of us non-Carolingians, any mention on the Weather Channel of "Cape Fear" is as likely to evoke not the actual cape but a movie title (cf "Key Largo"). As I understand it, Cape Fear is the fifth oldest English place name in America, so christened by the petrified crew on Sir Richard Grenville's expedition of 1585....

    The Florida gubernatorial race is being portrayed as a Trump vs Sanders proxy fight with a far left Bernie bro running for the Dems and a Trump-supported congressman for the Republicans. So it is necessary for the media to find what they can to destroy the latter. The Washington Post has certainly got the goods on the GOP's Ron DeSantis - because he made the mistake of attending a conference whose speakers included ...um, me: At the same conference, conservative author Mark Steyn praised Trump as the first politician to talk about immigration policy from the perspective of people already...

    Conservative Mark Steyn says it is clear Democrats are “moving farther Left at an extraordinary rate.” We see example after example of it these days. Brian Kilmeade gave multiple statements by Democrats that show just how far Left the Party has already moved: Hawaii Dem Sen. Brian Schatz – Announced support for NY Times writer Sarah Jeong and her anti-white, anti-cop tweets. Arizona Dem Candidate for Governor, David Garcia, wants an open border with Mexico. New York Democrat Candidate for Governor, Cynthia Nixon, wants Democrats to openly embrace “Socialism.” New York Democrat Candidate for Attorney General, Zephyr Rain Teachout (yes,...

    Though former Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe has been out of office for about nine months now, there seems to be a bit more closure today as the first post-Mugabe poll in the country--and indeed, the first vote of any substance there in generations--elected a new leader, Emmerson Mnangagwa. Now, that isn't to say it's been a seamless process. The loser has rejected the vote, so whatever the Ndebele translation of "collusion" is will surely be circulating in the African press. With Mark on assignment hopefully far from Zimbabwe, we thought we'd share his observations on Mugabe from last October, as...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
