In a primetime address televised on Monday, French President Emmanuel Macron attempted to diffuse the ongoing populist revolt of the ‘yellow jacket’ or ‘yellow vest’ movement.
The yellow jacket protests are just a small symptom of a much larger problem––the decline and fall of once-magnificent France.
Neither Emmanuel Macron nor the media understand how serious the French tax revolts are, but the protesters can be bargained with if elites start paying attention.

No matter how charming Macron is during his visit to Washington, President Trump should avoid being suckered into a longer and deeper involvement in Syria.
‘The others, gasping, stumbling, with face contorted, hands wildly gesticulating, and uttering horse cries of pain, fled madly through the villages and farms …’
By declaring ‘mission accomplished’ in Syria after a single night, President Trump is avoiding the kind of sustained strategy that actually produces results.
The United States, the United Kingdom, and France were the heroes of the twentieth century. In the twenty-first century, they still are.
