Survivors of Communism Speak at George Mason University

Oct 8, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”  - Winston Churchill

The Ronald Reagan lecture series introduced three distinguished speakers, two survivors of communism from Cuba and Ukraine, and the American child of a Vietnamese family who fled communism, to the student body at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, on October 3, 2016 with the idea to warn the audience about the dangers of socialism and communism. The event was hosted by the College Republicans of which less than five were present. Four more GMU students attended “out of curiosity” and the rest of the audience was composed of older adults from the local community.

I could guess the audience would be sparse as soon as I saw the statue of George Mason in front of the Johnson Center. He was bedecked in a carnival mask, green ribbons tied in bows around his ankles, green and yellow balloons in his hands, and various signs were attached to his body announcing a job fair. The center was full of students milling about, drinking coffee, having dinner, and chatting enthusiastically as any young person would.

Mocking Reality as Conspiracy Theory

Sep 30, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

The globalists are steam rolling their way to a November victory at all costs. Nobody is standing in their way. As the brilliant late comedian George Carlin said, the real owners of this country will not let us make any important decisions. He told his audience that politicians are elected to give us a false sense that we have a choice but in reality we don’t because, he told us, “they own you.” 

“They own all the important land; they own and control the corporations, they control the Senate, the House, the city hall; they have the judges in their pockets; they own the media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear; they got you by the balls, they spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want; we know what they want, they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.”


Mamaia Niculina’s Parsley and Humble Self-Sufficiency

Sep 20, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

I wrote about relative paucity and poverty in this country, describing how the Census data does not take into account the generous welfare system in their poverty formulation, but strictly considers the annual income ceiling of a family of four.

Yet many “poor” in this country know how to milk the system, own a home, TVs, cell phones, cars, electronics, air conditioning, have cable, refrigerators, microwaves, food,  and other amenities that make life comfortable and worth living.

Most importantly, quite a few of the “poor,” are members of the generational welfare class. When compared to most countries, they are well off, do not work by choice, are not ashamed that they are kept by taxes from those who do work, and seldom assume personal responsibility for their poor choices in life.
The following story is a poignant case of real poverty. A sad video crossed my desk recently from the old country.  Two Romanian local policemen were accusing a tiny 84-year old lady of fiscal evasion because she was selling herbs and vegetables from her own garden to survive while corrupt politicians steal millions of other people’s money, with scant consequences.

Poverty or Conveniently Hidden Statistics

Sep 18, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

Americans in general are confused about poverty – people and economists define it differently. People who call themselves “poor” desire socialism and are perennially voting for their favorite Marxist Democrat and complain endlessly how unjust and rigged the system is, how the Man keeps them down and how there is no equality and social justice. Nobody brings up personal responsibility and work ethic into the mix of poverty.

To say that poverty induced by socialist dictatorships is hard to shake would be an understatement. Ask Cubans and Venezuelans what is like to live in the workers’ paradise that Fidel and Chavez forced upon their people while the two dictators stashed away stolen billions.

Common Sense Progressive and “Out of America”

Sep 9, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

“In countries where people are free, people are not ‘equal.’ In countries where everyone is ‘equal,’ people are not free.” —Rightbias.com

The young black man described himself as a “common sense progressive.” I would have never noticed his profile in the social media, had it not been for his unreasonable defense of another rich and successful black man, a football player, who chose to ignore our National Anthem under the absurd race-baiting excuse that he was taking a stance against imagined racial and police oppression in America.

To call this young man delusional and indoctrinated into progressivism by his expensive public school education in America is an understatement. Since he has never lived in any stifling communist paradise he yearns for, this young man is in no position to understand that common sense was in short supply or non-existent in communist countries. Associating “common sense” and “progressivism” is oxymoronic or delusional at best.

Wind Turbines, Rusting Giants of the Environmental Watermelon Religion

Aug 28, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

I saw the once verdant wheat fields of Eastern Europe covered with ugly wind turbines, slowly spinning their huge blades into the wind. A few funnel dust swirls were blowing the topsoil into the air. They did not appear to be connected to any storage station that would distribute the electrical power generated. I searched and found out that they were really not connected to any network, were not generating usable electricity, they were all for show to placate the “green growth” European bureaucrats who gave them money to install the eyesores instead of growing crops.

Turbines kill birds on a large scale around the world and disturb humans and wildlife.  According to Save the Eagles International, “contrary to what we are told, wind farms will cause the extinction of many bird and bat species” because birds are naturally attracted to tall structures.

Louisiana Flood of 2016 and the Yangtze River Flood of 1931 Not Caused by Climate Change

Aug 19, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

The severe flooding in Louisiana, the result of torrential rain and the location of Baton Rouge 56 ft. above sea level, contributed to the destruction of 40,000 homes. More than 30,000 people and 1,000 pets had to be rescued.

The New York Times published a story immediately, “Flooding in the South Looks a Lot Like Climate Change,” blaming the flood on the global warming hoax created by the very profitable climate change industry.

Al Gore said, “These kinds of record downpours—that’s one of the manifestations of the climate crisis.”  The community of Watson had a record 31.39 inches of rain during the downpour.

De-Nationalize and Globalize at the Expense of Working Families in America

Aug 13, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

I have described in my book, “Liberty on Life Support,” the American economy and the country in general as a comatose patient.  There was even a widely circulating cartoon on social media picturing Uncle Sam on a hospital gurney, attached to life support, barely clinging to life. At first glance it may seem a gross exaggeration until you actually look at the national debt clock, understand the true state of the economy, the condition of the socialist and collectivist education driven by Common Core, and the political power and corruption.

It seems that fundamental changes are occurring around the globe, driving countries to de-nationalize, to destroy their sovereignty, and to globalize under the guidance of the same U.N. elites who know what is best for an “overpopulated planet” that is going to be destroyed by a manufactured global warming Armageddon.

Clexit and the “Parasitical” Climate Change Industry

Aug 5, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

“The big threat to the planet is people: there are too many, doing too well economically, and burning too much oil.”  -  Sir James Lovelock, BBC Interview

Viv Forbes, in a media release on August 1, 2016, announced the founding of Clexit, Climate Exit, by “over 60 well-informed science, business and economic leaders from 16 countries.”

Forbes announced in his press release that ratification of the Paris accord will suppress the developed world with “pointless carbon taxes and costly climate and energy policies” that have no rational basis and are based on consensus. Such green and destructive polices are destroying real industries while “enriching the huge and parasitical climate-change industry that thrives on bureaucracy, misdirected government research, law books of costly regulations, never-ending conferences and subsidies for promoters of the failing technologies of renewable energy.”

Globalism through U.N.’s Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, and Vision 2050

Jul 27, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

Four years ago, a man was convicted of collecting rainwater and snow runoff on his property and served a 30-day jail sentence in Medford, Oregon, while the developing world is trashing their environment at alarming rates, suffocating waterways, rivers, and lakes with trash and refuse.

A meeting in Vienna aimed to amend the 1987 Montreal Protocol to phase out hydrofluorocarbons from air conditioners, refrigerators, and inhalers. John Kerry said that “air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State.” He believes that “It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we, you, are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.”

Education Enabling Cultural Decline

Jul 23, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

Trying to have a rational discussion based on facts with a College of Education graduate who uses Common Core teaching methods, how children learn, and the dumbing down of America’s education, is like trying to reason with a petulant child who happens to be a member of the Communist Party USA.
They take everything very personal and in a fascistic way, it’s their way or the highway. If we don’t do it this way, children will be doomed forever. Since 1979 when Jimmy Carter established the College of Education (which alone gobbles up close to $75 billion a year), our children’s education has gone down significantly as evidenced by test scores and a shameless lack of general knowledge.

Just because you are able to use technology expertly and know how to look up information does not make you smart, you just know how to use a search engine. What you are able to do with that information is another story. I’ve had technological savvy students who actually knew very little, were awkward, lacked common sense, and social skills.

Social Engineering of the Globe with Sustainable Development Goals

Jul 21, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” - Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment

One of the first changes made by the new British Prime Minister, Theresa May, was to close the Department of Energy and Climate Change and to transfer it to a new office, the Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy, a transfer heavily criticized by environmental groups and its cheering mainstream media who saw it as a disaster to end the lucrative climate change industry.

The new agency will be headed by Greg Clark who is believed to oppose wind power. Off shore companies are worried, in light of Brexit, that financing for their wind-generated energy projects, which depend heavily on subsidies to compete, will be affected.

Socially-engineering gives every student a passing grade

Jul 9, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

As if adding Common Core to the nation’s standardized education system was not damaging enough to our dumbed down indoctrination system, progressive academics are now pushing to eliminate a failing grade.

Washington Post wrote that, in Maryland, “Prince George’s County is weighing in changes that would soften its stance towards late work and bar teachers from giving students zeroes for assignments.” l

Big Brother of Smarter Planet, Smarter Cities

Jul 5, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

IBM has a vision for you, Mr. and Mrs. Global Citizen, a vision for Smarter Cities around the globe. You have not been consulted about it but you will be subjected to their vision whether you agree to it or not. And if you want to learn more about IBM’s international effort to build “a Smarter Planet, Smarter Cities,” in preparation for what they dubbed, “the cognitive era,” you can read more about it here.

IBM aligned its philanthropic pockets with the plan to build a Smarter Planet. Some goals mirror U.N.’s Agenda 2030 seventeen stated goals for the globe.

The American Flag, Symbol of Freedom

Jul 1, 2016 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

The American flag has been a symbol of pride, of hope, of freedom, of liberation, of exceptionalism, of courage, of inspiration, of strength, and of power. It pains me to see anti-American elements, the enemies of freedom, Islamists, communists, and other traitors burn it, trample it, tear it, trash it, and do unspeakable things to it.

Our Stars and Stripes must be properly folded, stored, and disposed of. Yet the Rhode Island Veterans cemetery where Stan Sniezyk’s father and other heroes are buried disposed of piles of torn and dirty American flags into the dumpster and kept them in a storage shed. Photographs and even a video outraged patriotic Americans around the country. Stan Sniezyk posted photos of mounds of flags in “Call 12 for Action.” When interviewed, he told WPRI 12, “It just broke my heart because everyone in this cemetery fought under that banner and every fiber of that flag is their blood, sweat, and tears.”
