Mark ended the week on one of his favorite TV shows, with Stuart Varney on Fox Business. Fox haven't posted the segment where Steyn mistook Stuart's son for the Belgian prime minister, but they did post this exchange, with Mark marveling at how the legislative and judicial branches appear to have swapped roles:

"The congressional GOP is sending a very dangerous message. They're basically telling their voters elections don't matter and no matter what you vote for, nothing changes," he said.

He said the system is "dysfunctional," since you have judges legislating while Congress holds "pseudo-court hearings" on things like Russian election interference.

"We have district court judges who presume to make immigration policy and Congress, meanwhile, can't legislate anything..."

~Speaking of TV, we'll have a new edition of The Mark Steyn Show for you this weekend. Audio-wise, for Founding Members of The Mark Steyn Club, we'll have another episode of our serialization of Conan Doyle's The Tragedy of the Korosko later tonight. And, speaking of Fox, Steyn remembers the network's founder, Roger Ailes, over in our obituaries department.

As Mark explained when we launched the Club, Founder Membership isn't for all - but it's there to ensure our content remains available for all, out there in the world - in print, audio, video, and occasionally live on stage, too. But one advantage membership brings is that you do get to enjoy free range in our Comments section. So, if you disagree with anything Mark said to Stuart, please have at it below.

For more information on The Mark Steyn Club and becoming a Founder Member, please see here.
