America lost a great one when Admiral James A. "Ace" Lyons died this morning in Faquier County, Virginia. I will be writing more; for now, here is a short video which offers a vivid glimpse of this remarkable man. 



The headline at Gates of Vienna, "The Stasi Goes to Kindergarten," tends toward the nuanced and ironic, but them's the facts. A foundation partly funded by Soros's Open Society Foundation and led by Annette Kahane, former Stasi spy, has produced an abominable teacher's guide to spying on kindergartners to identify the children who come from traditional German homes. Worse, this Stasi  kiddie guide opens with a endorsement from a German government minister, who, it should be observed, like Angela Merkel, grew up in Communist East Germany.

The subject of yesterday's Epoch Times column, "When the S-Word Was Taboo," is something I have been thinking and writing about for a long time.

I will not be providing comprehensive analysis of the Paris riots today; however, as I try to follow events, and the interpretations of events, I am continually nagged internally. Through the smoke and fire, we just can't see everything that appears to be going on -- green carbon/fuel tax riots that have ballooned into a violent movement against the annoying globalist tool Macron. Yes, there is something magical in watching riot police doff their helmets as maskless "yellow jackets" break into a rendition of La Marseillaise.
