With 12/21/2021 rapidly approaching I thought this would be a good time to share some of my thoughts about the Mayan Calendar. I have been thinking about this stuff for for a long time and hope to write a book about it someday.

There are a lot of mysteries surrounding the Mayan culture chief among them is what happened to them. It's a civilization on par with the Ancient Egyptians and it collapsed suddenly and nobody seems to know why. Well I have a theory what may have happened to them and the secret may lie in the Mayan calendar itself.

When an ancient city is discovered archeologists sometimes go the Bible to see what city it might be. The Bible has used been used when they discovered Ancient Jericho and Sodom and Gomorrah and many other Ancient cities, but there doesn't seem to be any mention of the Mayan civilization anywhere in the Bible.

It was a civilization as old if not older than the ancient Egyptians and more advanced and much larger than Egypt. The Mayans have cities all over Central and South America and more are being discovered every year. So why does the Bible ignore half the planet an only talk about the history of the eastern hemisphere? I think the Bible actually does talk about the ancient Mayans but we have just not looked at it the right way, here is my theory.

Elmer's Theory about the Mayan Calendar and Everything!
It is my theory that the Ancient Mayan Culture is the Civilization that was destroyed by Noah's flood.

I think this is so for 3 major reasons.

1. In the Mayan Calendar the months were 20 days and there were 18 months in a year so the years were only 360 days. I think this indicates a 20 day lunar cycle where the moon revolves around the earth every 20 days instead of the 28 days it takes now. I think this is evidence of an apocalyptic astronomical event that changed the face of the earth and wiped out the Mayan civilization.

2. Mayan ruins when first discovered are buried in many feet of dirt like they were buried in a flood.

3. There are great similarities in art and architecture between the Mayans the Egyptians and the Ancient Balinese, who flourished on the tiny island of Bali in Southeast Asia.

Ms. Christiana Figueres, chief secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, told a press conference in Doha today that the 18th Conference of the States Parties would bring about "a complete economic transformation of the world."

La Figurehead did not have in mind a free-market transformation. The intention of these 18 annual vacations - er, serious negotiations to Save The Planet - is what it always was: to create a treaty binding more than 190 nations to do as the Secretariat says. Democracy? What's that?

Todd Stern, the U.S. lead negotiator, was similarly upbeat at his own press conference. With all the fervour of an evangelical preacher in an Alabama mega-church, he predicted that the "Doha Way Forward", following the "Bali Road-Map", the "Durban Platform", etc., would achieve a second Kyoto Protocol - a treaty that all the nations of the world would ratify.

On hearing this, the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, the only climate-skeptical environmental group recognized by the U.N., decided to design some lapel buttons showing the figure "67" - the minimum number of U.S. Senators needed to ratify a treaty. In 1997, while Al Gore was president of the Senate, it voted by 95 to nil not to accept any treaty like the Kyoto Protocol.

Though the key bureaucratic global-warming profiteers here think "progress" is at last going to be achieved, there is a subdued air among everyone else. Very few came. Copenhagen in 2009, when almost 50,000 turned up, is a distant memory.

Even the Communist-era slogans that are a wearisome feature of these conferences are less strident than usual. This year's official catchphrase is "Count me in."

The very slow, ancient, badly air-conditioned buses echoing tinnily with Arab music that ferry the plebs like us to and from the conference center have "Share The Ride - Cut The Carbon" painted on their grimy flanks. Hardly a rallying-cry to man the barricades.

The trouble is that there has not been anything like enough global warming to keep the usual suspects safe in their cushy, taxpayer-funded sinecures. My innocent amusement for today was to visit several of the side-shows organized by the usual kooks who are drawn to these conferences like quacks to colored water. At each event I asked the obvious question:

"After 16 years without global warming, how confident are you that the official predictions of doom have not been overblown?"

It's called "Carbon Sequestration" and stations like this one are starting to pop up all over the country, they pump massive amounts of CO2 deep underground where it won't cause any global warming. I think there are a couple of problems with this, for one thing they are not pumping "Carbon" underground but rather CO2, there is a big difference.

Coal and other fossil fuels are primarily made up of Carbon and when they are burned those Carbon molecules attach themselves to Oxygen molecules to form CO2. They do this at a two to one ratio, hence CO2. So for every Carbon molecule they are sequestering (for eternity) they also sequestering 2 Oxygen molecules. Oxygen is actually a good thing and we only have a finite number of Oxygen molecules.

The primary way oxygen is produces is when plants take CO2 from the atmosphere capture the Carbon molecule and release the 2 oxygen molecules into the atmosphere for us to breath. The more CO2 in the atmosphere the more plant growth there is and then we get more Oxygen as well. It's the symbiotic relation between man and plants called photosynthesis and it's been the driving force of life on this planet for millenia and it seems to work pretty well and I think we shouldn't mess with it.

Exclusive: Joseph Farah on Obama election: 'It's time to double-down and fight harder'

For many of us, the unthinkable has happened.

America has decisively turned the corner away from the constitutional principles of limited government and self-government with the re-election of Barack Obama.

There may be no way home for us.

For those of us who fundamentally reject Obama's policies, things are going to get very rough for the next four years. We have allowed our fellow Americans to pronounce judgment on the nation.

That's what Obama represents to me - God's judgment on a people who have turned away from Him and His ways and from everything for which our founders sacrificed their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.

Remember how everybody was upset that Global Warming wasn't in any of the debates? Now all of a sudden that's all everybody is talking about, it's Global Warming this and Global warming that.

On Bloomberg Businessweek's cover it even says, 'It's Global Warming Stupid', which is the opposite of our slogan 'It's stupid to politicize the weather'. Some are saying this might be the edge that Obama needs to win this election, because he wins on this issue.


The funny thing about the Bloomberg piece is in the first paragraph the author says this:

"Climate deniers exploit scientific complexity to avoid any discussion at all."

Translation: Those Skeptics use fancy words!

So he's saying it's the skeptics that are using complex scientific terminology, while people like Tom Brokaw just speak in platitudes and hope the mind numbed public will be scared enough into voting for Obama once again.

Brokaw says:

"I get why people would want to live right on the sea, that's understandable. I lived on the ocean in California and there's nothing quite like it. But now, because of climate change, and let's be clear about this: We have climate change under way. Global warming, that's another question that should be addressing as well. A vast majority of the meteorologists and scientists in the country, and in the world who study these kind of events have concluded that there is global warming and obviously we do have climate change. So, we have to plan for the future based on these realities, Andrea, and this is a huge wake up call."

Wow, now that's some heady stuff.

We've already seen Fisker Karmas spontaneously ignite in a Texas garage and a supermarket parking lot in California, which were blamed on isolated incidents.

But now the taxpayer-subsidized ($193 million) electric automaker has seen several of its $102,000+ luxury hybrids go up in smoke all at once, thanks to Hurricane Sandy. reported Tuesday night that approximately 16 of the Karmas that were parked in Port Newark, N.J. Monday night as Hurricane Sandy approached were submerged by the storm surge. According to the Web site's unidentified source, the vehicles then "caught fire" and "exploded." Jalopnik has exclusive photos of the Karmas in which they all were thoroughly destroyed by what must have been an intense inferno.

Fisker - which was supposed to received $529 million from the Department of Energy's stimulus allocation but was shut off because its business performance shortcomings - has acknowledged the incident.

Can Bill Gates Save Us?

By Elmer Beaureard


With Frankenstorm bearing down on the east coast maybe we should be asking Bill Gates for help.

Back in 2009 Bill Gates filed for 5 patents which could control hurricanes. I suppose the patents are still sitting on somebody's desk at the U.S. patent office but maybe President Obama could push this through. Do we even need a patent to at least try it?

Or maybe we should call these guys ore maybe the Chinese.

I guess my point is it seems like we could be doing more to prevent events like this from happening and we just seem to let them happen without trying any of these technologies. This is 2012 and we are America, are we going to let the Chinese beat us in this too?

In 1981 when Ronald Reagan became President he inherited a bad economy, rising unemployment rates and rising gas prices. So what did he do? He cut taxes, he cut spending, he cut regulations, increased oil drilling and he said things like...

"The way to a better life for all Americans is to free the energy of our citizens, to let you the people make decisions with your own lives, and to do that by getting the Government out of your way."
- Ronald Reagan

By 1984 the economy was improving, unemployment was dropping, gas prices were dropping and in the election Ronald Reagan won every state... except Minnesota.

In 2009 President Obama found himself in a very similar situation as Reagan but Obama did the exact opposite. He made the largest tax increase in history with Obamacare, he increased spending, increased federal regulations, restricted drilling and said things like...

"If you've got a business -- you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
- Barack Obama

Now in 2012 the economy is still bad, we still have high unemployment and high gas prices.

In Obama's new ad he tries to sound like Ronald Reagan, the only problem is, nobody believes him.

So let's hope in 2012 Obama has the opposite outcome that Reagan did in this election... except Minnesota.

No mention of global warming for the first time since Congress was briefed on the threat in 1988

The Pentagon ranks it as a national security threat and, left unchecked, climate change is expected to cost the US economy billions of dollars every year - and yet it has proved the great unmentionable of this election campaign.

Amid unprecedented melting of the Arctic summer sea ice, new temperature records in the US and a historic drought, the last of three presidential debates wound up on Monday night without Barack Obama or Mitt Romney ever uttering the words climate change.

It was the first time since 1988, the year Congress was first briefed on the emerging threat by the scientist James Hansen, that there had been no mention of climate change in an election debate.

I was encouraged by last night's debate because the term Global Warming or Climate Change didn't even come up. In fact both the candidates were arguing about who was going to drill more. Which made me think of this song.

By David Rose,


The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.

The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.

This means that the 'plateau' or 'pause' in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.

The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported.

This stands in sharp contrast to the release of the previous figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 - a very warm year.

Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased.

During a recent appearance on the StarTalk Radio Show, Real Time host Bill Maher expressed his desire to see more people killed via abortion, suicides and the death penalty because "the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death."

Asked by host Neil deGrasse Tyson what he thought about the death penalty and abortion, Maher re-affirmed his support for both, remarking, "The Pope is consistently pro-life, I am consistently pro-death."

Expressing how he was pro-death penalty, Maher said, "my motto is let's kill the right people."

"I'm pro-choice, I'm for assisted suicide, I'm for regular suicide, I'm for whatever gets the freeway moving - that's what I'm for," said Maher, adding, "It's too crowded, the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death."

Explaining how he knew many people who felt the same, Maher went on to say that "people who've earned it" deserved to die, remarking, "kill the right people."

The HBO host emphasized how he disagreed with the notion that all life is precious, referring to an argument made by Rick Santorum that prenatal testing should not be covered by the government because it encourages people to have abortions.

"I don't think there's anything wrong with that," said Maher, expressing his support for abortion and noting, "It's not that hard to create life, it's teeming everywhere, it's something a dog can do."

Reef Alarmists Jump The Shark

by Walter Starck,

The Great Barrier Reef is doomed again. A recent widely publicised scientific study reports the dramatic finding that it has lost half its coral in the last 27 years. Forty-eight precent of the loss is attributed to storm damage, with bleaching and crown-of-thorns starfish being responsible for 10% and 42% respectively. The average annual rate of coral loss over the 27-year period was estimated to be 3.38% and growth was put at 2.85%, leaving a net decline of 0.53% per year. Further effort and research on starfish control is suggested to be the most promising means of reversing the decline. Elimination of the loss due to starfish would leave a net gain of 0.89%.

While the news reports present the appearance of scientific precision and certainty, examination of the study itself reveals a number of doubtful assumptions, undisclosed conditions and instances where strong conflicting evidence is unmentioned. Examples of this include:

A Jobs Report Conspiracy?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Well, isn't that convenient? The Obama campaign desperately needed the last employment report to be released before the election to show that the unemployment rate had fallen below 8 percent, and somehow it magically happened. Even though non-farm payroll employment only increased by 114,000 last month (not enough to even keep up with population growth), the official unemployment rate fell from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent. So how did that happen? Well, the unemployment number is not based on the survey of employers that showed that 114,000 jobs were added to the economy last month. Rather it is based on a survey of households. And that survey showed that the total number of Americans employed last month increased by a whopping 873,000 - almost eight times the number that the employer survey showed. That figure for September (873,000) was the biggest one month increase in 29 years. And it just happened to come at the exact perfect time for Barack Obama. So was there a jobs report conspiracy? Examine the evidence and decide for yourself.

The number of Americans with a job fell by 195,000 in July.

Then it fell by another 119,000 in August.

But somehow in September it miraculously exploded in the other direction and 873,000 jobs were added to the economy?

If you believe that, I have a bridge that I want to sell you.

Al Gore's 'dirty weather' timing is impeccable - NOAA just released data showing 2012 tornado count dropping like a house in Oz

From NOAA's Storm Prediction Center (SPC) Facebook page, a silver lining to the heat wave/drought of 2012:

Check out these 2012 numbers from NOAA SPC, showing only 757 confirmed tornadoes as of September 21. That compares to an annual average of 1,300 tornadoes, and 1,692 that touched down last year as of late September.

By Karin McQuillan,

Romney has five basic proposals for fixing the American economy that are sensible, practical, and believable. Romney's goal of 4% economy growth is possible within four years. It is not rocket science.

Romney has prioritized five key areas to reverse Democrat policies. The number-one boost to economic growth is always energy. Energy runs everything, and the price of energy affects everything. The Obama administration's overspending by a trillion dollars a year has led to irresponsible printing and borrowing of money -- forty cents on every dollar Obama spends is borrowed. Printing money raises the price of oil, because we have devalued our dollar, which makes everything manufactured or transported more expensive. Devaluing the dollar is a hidden tax on families every time they fill up their cars, go to the grocery store, or turn on a light bulb.

But it is worse than that. Obama, indeed any Democrat, cannot and will not allow America to become energy-wealthy, because Democrats' green voting base fears fossil fuel. Obama is using the EPA to block fracking, to end the coal industry (which fuels half of our electricity), and to block off-shore drilling. Romney will allow America to use our wealth of natural resources. It can be done in the right places, with safe methods and proper regulation, but it must be done if we are to thrive.

The Photosynthesis Effect

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

By Elmer Beauregard


In my quest to find out what CO2 levels actually are in Minnesota I purchased my own CO2 meter and I have been having fun with it ever since. The good people at said you should let it run all day and see what happens. I did and much to my surprise I noticed that CO2 levels vary greatly in just one day.

During the day CO2 levels drop at a pretty steady rate, as plants grow during the day they consume CO2 and in turn emit oxygen for us to breath. This is called Photosynthesis and is the engine that drives life on this planet. It is a symbiotic relationship between animals and plants which I believe is God designed. How could something this complicated and well designed happen by chance?

What I think is interesting about this chart however is the dramatic spike in CO2 levels around sunset. CO2 levels go from a low of 378 ppm at 7 PM to a high of 462 ppm just after 9 PM. (sunset was at 7:51 PM). This is a 84 PPM or 18% increase in just 2 hours.

There are no man made influences shown on this chart. It was a very nice day here in Minnesota, we weren't running any air conditioners or furnaces, there were no fires no grilling this is just nature doing its thing. Plus, I have noticed this spike every night when taking measurements.

I'm sure all of you climate scientist reading this know all about the Photosynthesis Effect and have many arguments on why natural daily variations are meaningless. But when I see how much natural variability in CO2 levels there are in one day, I don't think there is a need to panic over a 1 PPM increase in CO2 every year at Mauna Loa.

If you haven't guessed by now I am a Ron Paul fan. I was hoping he would give a speech at the RNC, sadly that didn't happen. If he had maybe it would have sounded something like this.


On April 14, 2012 we commemorated the 100th anniversary for the tragic sinking of the Titanic. Looking back some say that had the captain reacted differently he could have saved everyone onboard that ship.

When it was discovered that they were heading straight for an iceberg the captain's first command was to turn hard port. The captain's instincts were based on his many years of experience commanding smaller ships but the Titanic was too big and moving too fast and it was slow to turn. He then made the command to reverse engines full throttle but it was too late and the ship hit the iceberg with a glancing blow which cut a huge gash below the water line. The captain then continued on for a while and only until it was obvious that they were sinking did he finally bring the ship to a stop.

Some think that if the Captain when he first knew of the iceberg immediately ordered the engines to go into full reverse and to drop both anchors to slow the ship down he would have saved the ship. The ship would have hit the iceberg head on but at a reduced speed. The impact would have caused people to fall out of bed but the ship would not have sunk. Some also think that even after the ship had struck the iceberg had they stopped right away they would have not sunk but by continuing on they took on too much water and their fate was sealed.

Today our Nation is like the Titanic and we are headed at break neck speed towards the iceberg of trillions of dollars of debt which will surely sink us. The Romney/Ryan solution, while well intended, is not going to be enough. With their plan it will still take generations to balance the budget. It would be like turning the direction of our Nation 2 degrees to the left and like the Titanic we will still end up sinking.

If I were in charge of the helm I would reverse engines at full power and drop every anchor I had to try and slow us down. And our nation will still hit that iceberg head on but we will survive.

Regular Conservatism isn't going to work anymore we need radical conservatism. What is radical conservatism? It is radically reducing the size of Government and radically reducing our national debt.
