  1. Hello, I am doing research on emf’s and a friend told me to see your article ENERGY AND THE SMART GRID. It starts out “If you ask Americans what the Department of Energy does…” Could you please send me your article or a link to where I can read it? I am purchasing an emf meter. Can’t wait to see all the things bothering me around here! Thankyou. Sincerely, Michelle Moore

  2. Hi, I sent a long comment and I don’t know where it went. I am doing emf research for my family. Can you send a link to your ENERGY AND THE SMART GRID? It starts out asking, “If you ask any American what the Department of Energy does,…” . I would sure appreciate it. Sincerely Michelle Moore

  3. Dear Dr. Johnson,

    Thank you for your article on Initium. I am from the Netherlands and was pointed to your article by a Romanian friend. I read online that my country may be next in line starting to use Initium (Enervin, Zampro).

    Can I perhaps ask you something? I’m getting my facts straight here, since it is such an important subject. You wrote: ‘Independent unofficial research claims that initium causes higher rates of colon cancer by as much as 65 percent more.’ Do you perhaps know the source for this information and have you maybe found out more about this substance since you wrote the article?

    Thank you,
    Daan de Wit

    • Google Initium and its BASF versions, Zampro, Enervin and you will find links to several independent studies. Google also Codex Alimentarius. You will find more leads.

  4. Dear Ileana,

    Many, many thanks for your essay exposing the cavalier, cynical and illegal granting and receipt of benefits intended for legal United States residents by illegal aliens. It makes me very angry. My parents and grand-parents emigrated from Hungary after the first world war and never asked anyone for anything except for the opportunity to benefit from their own honest hard work. We learned the new language and culture and did not demand that every one and every thing else bend to accommodate our foreign language and culture, nor did we seek to get to the head of every line dispensing public benefits.

    I and most other americans (of whom many are themselves struggling financially) deeply resent seeing illegal aliens receive free medical care, housing and grocery carts filled with expensive food (that we ourselves cannot afford) that liberal politicians and judges force me and my fellow tax-payers to provide.

    Our “liberal” (with other people’s money) leaders lack intellectual honesty and personal decency and integrity. They ought not wonder why decent, hard-working, law-abiding citizens utterly despise them. Those who wish to create and validate their self-concepts and images as being humanitarians and philanthropists ought to do so honestly, with their own money and resources, not by confiscating and re-distributing the fruits of the labor of others.

  5. Dear Ileana,
    Just read your article re the demise of America as we know it (to paraphrase you).
    My sister and I sat in disbelief on election night as the returns came in. However, as we are striving to be Christians we just have to know that God is in control and has His hand on this great country and will not abandon us in spite of our open rejection of Him.

  6. God will never abandon us. He created us and everything else so that we could have dominion over all on this earth, and for us to choose between heaven and hell. We can hope and pray that changes in government and our existance will be for the good of al, and for the glory of God, however we can’t expect God to prenet trouble here on earth. He has given us all we need to control our own outcome. Just as civilizations and governments have vanished in so many places in earth’s history, it is quite possible that our civilization and government here in America may end. We have fallen victim to the same sins that have plauged civilizations from the very beginning; greed, envy, lust, and unwillingness to love our neighbors as we do ourself, are leading to the destruction of what this country has sought for so many years (lifetimes).
    God will not solve our problems here on earth, only give us the ability to solve them ourselves, if we choose.

  7. I have read with great interest a lot of your articles over the summer and fall. It occurs to me I do not know anything about you, i.e. your credentials. Please comment about about your academic background. You have are addressed as Dr. Are you a medical doctor, a Ph.D., or honorary? You also make reference to being an economist. Are you trained as an economist? You cover such a broad range of subjects, I would enjoy knowing more about you.

  8. Thank-you for what you do. I was not surprised by the election results. Although it was not my desired outcome, in some way way I knew it would be the result. Our Beloved Country has been on the wrong path for many years. I am 60 now, 5 yr survivor of ovarian cancer, my 401k was used up with medical expenses even though I had insurance from work. Now 2 yrs 5 months unemployed & losing a parents’ home in a short sale (its a duplex I could not afford the mortgage on) I feel this was not a recession but a depression. They just won’t admit it. Some 40 years ago I read Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged and We the Living, I think we are living the lines from both books. I thought I had married my ‘John Galt’ in ’74. We were going to be independant of society and live far away from the throngs of moochers. Well over the past 6 years he has said he no longer liked the republicans and he swayed to the democrats. I can not fathom his thoughts anymore. If not for writers as yourself I think I would be alone. But luckily I can get on FB and find people of like thought. It is not true that the whole US voted for BHO. Only half of them did. The other half, like me voted for MMR. And Sanity. We must stay strong and not give up. We Must NEVER Give Up. We must go out there and be the SALT and the LIGHT that they need to see where they are going. If the Lemmings still wish to jump off cliffs, after you showed them which way was safe, well then Good Riddance. They will find what awaits them. We the Living however must do whatever we must do to correct this awful turn of events. It is impossible for this country to be productive under this regime of taxation so that unproductive folks can just continue to be more unproductive. The Little Red Hen worked so hard to grow her wheat and bake her bread, why must she feed the Lazy Ones who did naught but watch her work so hard. Thank Goodness there are many others who feel the same way. We were just slightly surpassed at the voting polls. In 2 more years there will be another election. Start NOW to make changes. Be so SALTY that You IRRITATE them. Be LIGHT so that they trip themselves up so much from their Blindness. POINT OUT EVERY THING THAT IS WRONG WITH THEIR STUPID DEPENDANT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST UTOPIA That goes against the American Way of Independence. BE LOUD, BE STRONG, BE FAITHFUL, BE AS YOU ARE. BE FREE!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. I read your article “The End of an Empire” and I agreed with everything you had to say, however, you got the date wrong. According to Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase, United States Supreme Court 1864-73. state sovereignty died at Appomattox. The Constitution died during Southern reconstruction. The Ideals of this nstion (heart and soul) died on November 6, 2012. It is a terrible thing to watch your country die.

    Best Wishes

  10. Ileana, I have never read such unadulterated drivel and am in awe of your machine gun use of emotive unsubstantiated hyperbole that you pack into a sentence. I am sorry that you began life in such an oppressive world but this does not make you an authority on the new life that you’ve adopted. The reverse is true in that you have a lot to learn about “Democracy.”

    • Ahh, my drivel. What makes you an expert, George Johnston? This is not a science paper, it is my website, I think, we still have freedom of speech, and therefore I can use any style I wish to express my opinion. You have the right to be wrong.

  11. Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh,
    We appreciate your directness in your articles and enjoy reading them very much. Thank you for your hard work.
    In your article The End of an Empire Nov 7, 2012.
    You mentioned SOLDIERS. I believe you meant to say service members or Troops. You see, Soldiers are ONLY Army. Many people use the term Soldiers in a generic fashion to represent all Troops but this is an insult to the Marines, Navy & other service members. When President Obama made this mistake in his public speaking it really upset my husband (a former Marine). Please remember this information your future writing. We would be most grateful and appreciative. Thank you so much.

    • Eve, you are right. I did use the term generically. I should have known better. Thank you for bringing up the distinction to my attention.

  12. Hello, I just read about you and your site on Freerepublic.com, where I am a long term member.
    “Fleeing Communism only to find it in America”
    ” Canada Free Press ^ | 05-06-2013 | Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh ”

    I have been somewhat educated about communism in central Europe, after spending ten or so years in Slovakia, and including a summer in Cluj (2004), as well as travels in Hungary, Czech Republic, Serbia, and Bulgaria.

    I am sick to see America fall to Communism, but I escaped the new USSA to live first in Bratislava.
    I left Slovakia in Jan. 2009 , but instead of returning the the USSA, I moved to the Philippines, where I have married, and raising our 2 yr old baby boy.

    I still have fine thoughts of my central European days, but deep sadness
    for my birth and home country, America.

  13. Harper uses extortion, threats and bribes to peddle his dirtiest oil on earth tar sands..which has devastated once pristine Alberta ecosystems and wilderness and their native inhabitants..along with many other of his cronies’ projects which harm environments worldwide. He has sabotaged climate talks, he blocks laws for animal cruelty and endangered species protection, he promotes horrific wildlife massacre bloodbaths, such as the harp seal pup bloodbaths (ignoring the entire world which has banned and boycotted Canada for that atrocity) and many other less publicized ones like elk massacres and endangered polar bear “trophy hunts”. he indulges in massive land and air pollution across Canada and clearcutting of old growth. Along with his crushing of laws upholding human rights, and his arms peddlng and warmongering, Harper has shown he’s simply a threat to the public and must be removed from public office.

    The tar sands are an ENVIRONMENTAL HOLOCAUST, the dirtiest source of oil in the world located in an area the size of Florida. Alberta tar sands are a blackened treeless moonscape that can be seen by satellite, in what used to be pristine and old growth boreal forest and wetlands. Spewing lakes of toxic sludge which routinely kills thousands of wildlife, by 2020 they are expected to emit more than 141 million tons of greenhouse gases – more than double that currently produced by all the cars and trucks in Canada. Alberta has the world’s largest dam built to hold the toxic waste and sludge from just one tar sands operation. 350 million cubic metres is the volume of water currently allocated to the tar sands, the equivalent to the water required by a city of two million people. Alberta is now the industrial air pollution capital of Canada, with over one billion kilograms of emissions. Alberta wildlife and fish is being devastated and First Nation communities downstream of tar sands operation have been experiencing unprecedented rates of bile and colon cancer, lupus and other diseases from tar sands. This is what that renegade Harper is extorting and bribing other countries to accept. Environmental renegade doesn’t begin to describe the Harper tyrant, he’s sabotaged climate talks, massively polluted air and water, clearcut Canada, and engaged in horrific bloodbath massacres of wildlife. The pipeline would only make a few corporate billionaires in Canada and the US rich, create a total of 35 permanent jobs, people are being kicked off their properties because of it from Canadian companies using eminent domain on Americans, they can slide by with hundreds of thousands of gallons of unreported “spillage” into American lakes, streams and aquifers and the oil from that pipeline would be shipped off to China after being refined by Texas refineries..aside from the Harper government’s continuing destruction of Canada there is virtually no benefit to the American public from that insane pipeline, only massive harm.

    Good thing Canada still remains a renegade, insignificant third world nation, despite making itself one of the worst global environmental terrorists on Earth.. thanks to that environment destroying, polluting, clearcutting, wildlife population massacring Harper monster who uses bribes and extortion and sabotaging of climate talks to peddle his filthiest oil on earth tar sands. Harper’s environmental terrorism is only the tip of his unlimited evil. Iran is Mother Theresa compared to that psychotic monster.

    • Living and working in Edmonton AB – near Ft. MacMurray – I can tell you that you don’t know what you are taking about. There is not one word of truth to your claims. Unlike Venezuela – who recover an identically “dirty” heavy crude through a State-owned oil monopoly – Alberta allows private enterprise to utilize technology and ingenuity in the recovery of the Oil Sands. In fact many former Venezuelans Oil&Gas professionals now work in Alberta for these companies.

      Innovation has led to incremental but great improvements over time – and NEW operations are seeing 20-30% reductions in harmful by-products per barrel. Not perfect yet – but I have no doubt improvements will continue.

      You need to get out more.

  14. If recent reports from energy experts are correct we may have less than 25 years of oil/gas left. This probably explains why the oil industry is considering shale oil deposits in the Australian desert out from the opal town of Coober Pedy in South Australia. What is of concern is that further north uranium is mined and the area may overlay the Great Artesian Basin, one of the greatest underground natural water storages in the world and certainly of vital importance to Australia.

    If this is the mess created by shale oil extraction, why aren’t all governments pushing for reduced power consumption, sensible lighting and making the most of daylight in new dwellings? None of this makes any sense to me? Must we
    gallop full tilt at the fast approaching precipice without any wise counsel dominating the conversation at all?

  15. I always used to say, to my students, in the long-gone days when I was allowed to teach: ” Thinking .. is NOT ‘ having thoughts ‘. It is an act of will, a creative choice. You have to drive it on, with your will “. You have to force your mind, along a creative pathway ..

    How many of them understood it ? A very few, accepted to be taught,
    properly. It was evident, by their very welcome & evident EMPOWERMENT

    That is the true aim & end of creative thinking: it is NOT receiving
    other people’s already-formed thoughts !

    Which is why certain vested interests oppose it, with all their might, and do their damndest, to prevent the people, from ever learning how to do it.

    The most ordinary human faculties, have become privatized, and are now only taught to those who regard themselves as the self-chosen elites. Who don’t intend to allow a competing set of elites, ever to arise .. or if they do, they are then targetted, for suppression.

    As for the rest, they are, like LED ZEPPLIN, intended to be Confused and Dazed, by it all. That is the fate of the masses, as conceived of, by the elites.

    Which anyone with a conscience, utterly repudiates ..

  16. Great article on our confused and misguided youth. I have a question though. In the article you mentioned the “MSM” marketing socialism. What are you referring to by the letters MSM?

  17. Thank you for all your insightful articles! I so appreciate your clear, informative messages. And I especially appreciate the fact that you share so many of my concerns for our nation and for today’s fast-changing world and destructive agendas.
    May I have your permission to post excerpts from your recent article, “Are We Too Late to Stop U.N. Agenda 21?” Actually, I would really like to post most of it, if you will allow me to do that.
    I’ve prepared a page for it here: http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/0013/Paugh/agenda21-cabal.htm, and I would love to make it available for our visitors this coming week. I would gladly shorten it to whatever size you will permit.
    Back in the nineties I attended several UN Conferences – and Gorbachev’s State of the World conferences — where I came face to face with global (and UN) leaders as a registered reporter. When a keynote speaker at Gorbachev’s 1995 conference in San Francisco (http://www.crossroad.to/text/articles/gorb10-95.html) called for a 90% reduction in the world population, the lengthy applause and cheering amazed me! Kindness, love, compassion and our God-given conscience were totally absent!
    I will continue to read your articles and if you would allow me to post some of your future articles, I would truly appreciate it.

  18. Ileana, you work is superb and we publish it ofter in our newspaper American Patriot News. I just saw your interview. I also co-host a radio show American Freedom Watch Radio and would love to do an interview.
    Please let me know.
    Thank you for everything you do and for helping us fight the fight against communism.

  19. How refreshing. I appreciate the perspective of someone who has seen communism up close. I earnestly hope more people look beyond the moldy bread and rude circuses and see the marionette strings tugging our leaders and media. You ever get to Wyoming, look me up. We can have some coffee and laughs!

  20. Lt. Col. Allen West is a coward. At CPAC he was approached by Mike Zullo of the Maricopa County AZ Cold Case Posse concerning Obama’s fake ID’s. Lt. Col. Allen West said he didn’t want to get involved in that matter because he might want to run for office again. He is a phony.

  21. Hi. I am writing a rhetorical analysis and can not seem to determine whether you see tattoos as a sense of self-expression or self-mutilation. Can you please clarify?

  22. Ileana~You write with the precision of a well sharpened sword! I am in total awe and respect of your research, writing and topic choices! You go where few dare! I applaud your efforts and your spirit and pray that you are kept safe and that your inner fire continues to burn bright! Go get ’em! Sincerely~ a fellow female writer

  23. Stimata doamna,
    editura noastra ar fi interesata sa stie daca am putea primi cartea dvs Communism 2.0, 25 years later , sub forma de fisier electronic sau sub forma tiparita, pentru a o recenza? Am fi interesati sa citim si sa evaluam cartea pt o eventuala publicare.

    Asteptam un raspuns din partea dvs.
