Where does American Exceptionalism Come From?

Jun 20, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

I do not remember the term exceptionalism used in the seventies when I moved south. The word had been around for quite some time in political writings. I encountered people all the time who were proud of their heritage, their lilting southern accent, and Judeo-Christian values. They opened their homes and their churches to any newcomer, foreign or domestic, and welcomed them with a healthy dose of southern wit, apple pie, and fear of God.


Liberal Twisted Logic Why Gas is Expensive

Jun 18, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

Recently, two Washington Post writers, in a half-page spread resplendent with meaningless pie charts and graphs that even a high school student would laugh off, failed miserably to explain, “Why we feel pain at the pump.”


Demonizing America’s silent conservative majority from Canada

Jun 17, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

On May Day, the international holiday of communists, the Washington Post editorial used Jonathan Kay’s book, “Among the Truthers: A Journey through America’s Growing Conspiracist Underground,” to further besmirch and demonize the silent conservative majority of America. The left’s constant ideological wars against the taxpaying middle class and the job creators continue.


Agenda 21 and Obama’s Rural Council?

Jun 15, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

On June 9, 2011, an Executive Order established the White House Rural Council with 25 executive branch departments including Defense, Justice, Homeland Security, National Drug Control, Environmental Quality, Labor, Commerce, Interior, EPA, Housing, Health, Education to name just a few.


European Demographic Suicide

Jun 13, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

A recent interview with Neagu Djuvara, brought to the forefront the sad issue of cultural suicide by Europeans in the last thirty years. Statistical demographics prove that most western nations are not replacing their population at a rate higher than death rates and are thus galloping in the direction of self-extinction. The birth rate in various countries has dropped dramatically for Europeans while the birth rates of groups such as gypsies and immigrants from Africa and the Middle East are sky rocketing.


Obama’s Inflation

Jun 11, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

I enjoy shopping at my neighborhood grocery store. The shelves are always well stocked, there is a wide variety of food to satisfy even the most finicky palates, and prices are reasonable. Unfortunately, prices have steadily risen with each trip in response to the current administration’s expanding fiscal and monetary policies. My well-grounded fear is that shelves will be empty in the near future.


Obama’s Energy Policy

Jun 9, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

imageThe President exhibited incredible callousness and total disconnect from the plight of the American people whom he has sworn to serve and protect. 

He recently advised a young man who was lamenting the high price of gasoline, to trade in his gas-guzzler SUV for a better mileage car made by GM or Ford.

What if the man had a large family and needed an SUV or a van to transport them? What if he could not afford to buy a new car?


Are we in Rome?

Jun 6, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

My husband and I were visiting the Coliseum in Rome three years ago. Our talkative and self-deprecating Roman tour guide, a rare find among boisterous Italians, commented, while pointing to the Coliseum, that he did not know what happened to Rome, they used to be such great architects, engineers, and builders. He added that they devolved into Italians who take months to complete a simple job. When projects are finished, they are full of errors, and every team member blames somebody else. We laughed in agreement, having spent time in northern Italy and having dealt with the ridiculous bureaucracy. We had spent once all day driving from one office to another just to pay a landline phone bill.


National Debt is a Threat to National Security

Jun 3, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

National debt is the biggest threat to our national security. Most people’s eyes glaze over when discussion turns to business and economics. Americans know we have a huge debt with lots of zeroes but have no idea how it grew so exponentially large, where it came from, who owes it, who owns it, or how many zeroes a trillion has.


Useful Idiots

Jun 2, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

During incipient communist regimes, the general population foolishly supported the wave of change that promised to fundamentally alter the balance of power and bring wealth and prosperity to the masses by expropriating and stealing from the “undeserving rich.”


Hope and Change, the Communist Way

May 30, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

I am in Washington, D.C. surrounded by expensive SUVs, Hummers, Mercedes, and “environmentally friendly” Priuses sporting stickers with Hope and Change, Socialism 2012,  advertising socialism and communism, to the detriment of the “evil” capitalist system that afforded them those cars and a luxurious lifestyle.


American Ignorance

May 26, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

Americans are greatly misinformed when it comes to socialism and communism. Winston Churchill said it best, “socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
