"I believe it to be the most common plight in North America: overly-full bellies with starving souls. A good friend of the family who grew up during the harsh, impoverished dictatorship era of Nicolae Ceausescu's Romania said: '...Once I came to North America, it seemed as though unlike home -- where many died of starvation from lack of food & resources -- here they die of empty souls' it was a very eye-opening moment." ~ Adrian Devin Mathews

What is it with the fetish that the most egregious dictators in recent history have with Mercedes Benz stretch limousines? Pol Pot's 1973 Mercedes W115 black stretch limo is now up for auction. But it isn't as if the dictator actually bought it. He inherited it as war booty from his predecessor, the right wing lunatic Lon Nol. After Mr. Pot returned to the jungle it was spotted being used as a fruit truck by a watermelon farmer delivering his produce to market. Then, British expat Paul Freer scooped it up for a song. But Mr. Freer's hobby of cars and motorcycles has not gone over well with the wife. She, a survivor of Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge regime, refuses to ride in the vehicle. Freer has decided to put the vehicle up for sale and donate proceeds to the publication of my book "Sympathy for the Devil." “She definitely doesn’t share my passion for oil and iron,” said Freer dryly. “It’s quite fitting that the car finally has an opportunity to be put to good use and that I’m able to help someone w ...

December 25, 1868 - President Andrew Johnson granted general amnesty to all those involved in the Civil War. December 25, 1926 - Hirohito became Emperor of Japan. December 25, 1989 - In Romania, a television broadcast of a Christmas symphony was interrupted with the announcement that Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife had been executed following a popular uprising. A pro-democracy coalition then took control. Ceausescu, a hard-line Communist, had been ousted from power after ordering his black-shirted state police to suppress a disturbance in the town of Timisorara, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 4,500 persons.
THE FIRST QUESTION PEOPLE ASK WHEN THEY hear that you have just spent an hour with Nicolae Ceausescu is, ''How did he look?'' So it went with the hotel concierge, the restaurant waiter, the taxi driver, the travel-agency clerk and foreign diplomats in Bucharest. The implication of the question, and much of what is said in the police state that is Rumania deals in implications and inferences, was whether President Ceausescu has long to live. A year ago, he had been out of action for weeks, the rumor being that he had prostate cancer. But now, the 68-year-old leader seemed, to the nondiagnostic eye, more or less fit. I had asked to see Ceausescu in March, just 20 years after he barred me from Rumania while I was serving as Balkan correspondent of The New York Times. The reason for the ban, suggested but never made explicit, was an article I had written, based on many interviews, saying that Ceausescu, then in power for one year, appeared to be scarcely known in the Rumanian countryside. Ten years later, I w ...
Here is another a documentary that I find interesting. This one on one of the most hated tyrants of the 20th Century, the Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. From 1965 to his execution in 1989, he was the absolute ruler of the Romanian people and like both Kim Il-Sung & Pol Pot, developed a Stalin-like style of communism (complete with a massive personality cult to brainwash the population) but which also had strong nationalistic themes and messages. Of all the Eastern bloc communist leaders of all the Warsaw Pact countries that came to power after Stalin's death, Ceausescu was the worst. His cruelty, and that his wife Elena, knew no limits, and established one of the most notorious secret police forces ever seen. Ceausescu was hated by his own people and many world leaders: Mikhail Gorbachev despised him and despite the polite appearances given in the program, The Queen hated having to received him. She hated greeting Ceausescu because of what the Romanian communists had done to her heroic cousin King . ...
Some prayers are so stupid. People in finding that GEJ is getting more supporters daily fashioned a prayer "may God do to you what GEJ is doing to Nigeria. Say Amen" So God should take a cue from man? So we are to compare Godly love and care and provision to that of mortal man? To say amen to "may God do to you what your mother does to you" is even very foolish cos your mother's love is nothing compared to that of God. I am Christian and this is what my faith has taught me to believe. Maybe I should say the same prayer to those who pray it, that may God treat them as Ahmadu Bello, Awolowo and Ojukwu and even Mandela and Obama treats their followers. No politician and what they do should be compared to God. Herod was struck down for same Comparison as was Nicolae Ceausescu of Romania. Dont joke with God like that.

Communism is responsible for millions of deaths – more, even, than Nazi Germany in just the Soviet Union alone. Communists such as Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, Nicolae Ceausescu and others have killed millions of people. But The Soviet Union stands out as the worst.

TOMATO FACT Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu visited New York City in 1978, protesters threw tomatoes and eggs at his motorcade. Ceausescu protested to Mayor Ed Koch, who downplayed the incident, asking, "A couple of tomatoes and a few eggs?" The dictator joined a long history of tomato targets. Others include Margaret Thatcher, Sarah Palin, Frank Sinatra and Cubs slugger Hack Wilson. And the Paris debut of Igor Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" was tainted by tomato tossers.

What is unquestionably Romania’s most famous building, Palatul Parlamentului (known universally as Casa Poporului) was built during the darkest days of the Nicolae Ceausescu regime. Standing 84m above ground level on 12 floors, the building has long been shrouded in mystery, rumour and hyperbole. Originally designed to house almost all the organs of the communist state, it today plays host to the Romanian parliament and a modern, well equipped conference centre, as well as Romania’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Much of the building, however, remains unused. The public tour of the building is thoroughly recommended (it is the only way to see the building, in fact) though the commentary consists of little more than a bored guide reeling off endless superlative statistics. You’ll see plenty of grand staircases, marble-plated halls and conference rooms, while - if you pay the extra - you may also have the chance to go on the roof, which offers perhaps the best view of central Bucharest. You can even now ...
DIA WILL GET THE SAME OF Nicolae Ceausescu, who was executed with his wife on Christmas day of 1989, was a maverick and despotic Rumanian Communist leader who pursued an independent course abroad and demanded slavish subservience at home. For one of Eastern Europe's most durable dictators, Mr. Ceausescu's downfall after 24 years of repression at home and bridge-building to the West came astoundingly fast, even when measured against the frantic pace of change in the Soviet bloc that year. Just a month before his death, tens of thousands of workers marched under fluttering flags to hail President Ceausescu's re-election as the General Secretary of the Communist Party
