Beautiful view off of the farm porch this morning. Chance of rain, fluffy clouds and zero chemtrails! Rose bush in full bloom with hundreds of red flowers. Air smells sweet. Thanks God for the many blessings.

Our Global Warming vacation has done us a world of good. Most of us were in Florida to escape the snow for awhile. Those who stayed claim it wasn’t much of a winter.
Everyone needs to remove the tinfoil hat once in awhile and take a conspiracy break! Now back at home, the temperatures are in the 60′s and soon we will begin plowing, planting and harvesting non-Monsanto seeds.
While today might be an ordinary day; for those of us who do occasionally wear our tinfoil hats, The Ides of March is the perfect opportunity to catch up on conspiracy.
“Beware The Ides of March,” is a warning for today and found in the Roman calendar that marks the middle of the month. Roman leader Julius Caesar was warned that he was in imminent danger. Caesar didn’t listen and was stabbed to death on March 15, 44 B.C. If someone warned you of impending danger would you do something to avoid it? Go ahead light up another Marlboro, toss back a Scotch (Maker’s Mark preferably) while you read!
There are warning signs everywhere that doom, gloom and disaster could strike at anytime. Just ask the people of The Great Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, whom just realized the one year anniversary only to have numerous quakes yesterday. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php

What kind of warning does a nation need to not build a nuclear reactor on top of a known seismically active region?
Two civic groups in Fukushima Prefecture are planning to file a criminal complaint against senior officials of Tokyo Electric Power Co. and government bodies for professional negligence over the Fukushima nuclear crisis, group members said Wednesday.
Yukuo Yasuda, a lawyer supporting the groups, said the citizens are set to accuse TEPCO of failure to take necessary measures to cope with massive tsunami even though the possibility of such a disaster was pointed out before the March 11 calamity last year. http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/news/20120315p2g00m0dm010000c.html
What will it take to realized that millions put there lives in danger by just living near the San Andreas Fault?
|MAP||3.3||2012/03/15 06:31:23||33.231||-116.119||14.4||SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA|
Millions more could be in peril on the U.S. coastal areas with the threat of hurricanes! Auntie Em, Auntie Em! Say nothing of the recent Tornado that wiped out and entire Indiana town.
Ahhhh, remember Giampaolo Guiliani, a seismologist at the nearby Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Abruzzo, who predicted, following months of small tremors in the area, that a much bigger jolt was on its way.http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/08/italy-earthquake-warnings-by-giampaolo-guiliani-dismissed/
And what of the Haiti earthquake quandary?
Recent research and observation have shown that the process of seismogenesis is not completely random — earthquakes tend to be localized in space, primarily on plate boundaries, and seem to be clustered in time more than would be expected for a random process. http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/25/haiti-earthquake-predicted-24-hours-before/
You think it is easy living on the 3rd Planet from the Sun? Disasters (natural or man-made) on Earth come from earthquakes, tornado’s, plagues, disease, volcanos, wars, and religions just to name a few.
More recent, some conspiracy theory claims a mysterious planet-sized ‘Death Star’ has been captured on video as it ‘refuels’ at the surface of the sun. http://www.pakalertpress.com/2012/03/15/conspiracy-theories-claim-mysterious-planet-sized-death-star-has-been-captured-on-video-as-it-refuels-at-the-surface-of-the-sun/
Now if someone or something can harness the energy of the sun, that is some major $hit. Likely just a freak of the nature of the universe. Right?
And just what the hell is this sound coming from a sun’s solar storm? http://www.physorg.com/news/2012-03-solar-storm-sonification-video.html It’s a “sonification” of measurements from two spacecraft during the most recent storm.
Could this noise have something to do with us asking, “What is That Noise?” http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/07/29/haarp-what-is-making-that-noise/ For the record, as The CEO & Czar of The Committee In My Head and a few other minions, these sounds are not anywhere near what I hear.
Created by doctoral candidate Robert Alexander II, he explores the world of science through sound. His,
…research lies at the intersection of technology and creativity, and my goal is to create new interfaces for enabling human expression. http://designscience.umich.edu/students/alexander_r.html
Maybe his research will lead to enabling alien expression as well. We can’t get the movie, Contact out of our heads because to our untrained ear it sounds like either, “I hate you,” or “I love you.” Then again maybe it is the voice of God?
Changing directions, there is the conspiracy of a war on women and conservatives with Sandra Fluke at http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/03/the-rights-sandra-fluke-conspiracy-theories.php?ref=fpnewsfeed.
While perhaps not a “Slut,” she has none-the-less prostituted for the left, in as much as we at Ahrcanum prostitute for the right. Writing what is right, we found this-
What is a good conspiracy article without including President Obama?
With the results of Maricopa County, AZ, sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse,” an incredible claim has become an incredible situation: a team of professional investigators, commissioned by a major law-enforcement agency, has determined that the alleged birth certificate produced by the president of the United States is a probable forgery.http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/45233?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
However ridiculous it might seem, if President Obama does not meet the qualifications to be President, we have a SNAFU of major proportion.
The thing about the Ides of March being a warning, is some what passe. What is not is that there is indeed a war on for your mind. Do you not believe Christianity is being wiped clean in Egypt and other places? Do you not believe that you are not influenced by mainstream media? Do you not believe in yourself?
What we believe is that only God is perfect. The $hit might hit the fan sometime, somewhere, somehow. Just ask the Syrian or Egyptian people. It doesn’t take the Ides of March for us to know someday each of our days will end.
Stay tuned and have a good day; one day it will be your last. God Bless.

Glenn Beck delivered an unprecedented punch Saturday at his Restore Honor Rally. Watching on UStream Live, at times it seemed like I was at Church, hearing a homily about patriotism and the intertwining of God in the founding of America. Just like as it often happens in church, towards then end I am getting bored.
Flipping channels, I also saw Reverend Al Sharpton’s Reclaim the Dream Rally. Clearly, Glenn Beck’s Restore Honor Rally created much more fervor in the hearts of attendees with a much larger turnout.
The article, A Tale of Two Rallies reviews the days events noting that the Lincoln Memorial was packed a couple hours before the start of “Restoring Honor” while at 10:30am — Thirty minutes before his “Reclaim the Dream” rally start, Al Sharpton has some catching up to do. http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/27080?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
Sharpton never really caught up, in as much as the mainstream media did it’s best to discredit Beck and make it look like there was a larger turnout for Sharpton.
Reading other opinions and news on the events and I stumble into this photo from The New York Daily News, http://www.nydailynews.com. Check out the cool little frog who is so small it fits inside Lincoln’s head!
Pretty neat photograph to illustrate just how small this frog is. Wait a minute, why is “In God We Trust,” blurry? The top of Lincoln’s head seems to be intact, but not the words.
The photo is credited to Indranil Das, an independent documentary photographer based in Kolkata, India. He travels widely to document the rich and wide variety of socio – political – economic scenarios prevailing in India. (http://www.lightstalkers.org/indranil-das)
Perhaps Mr. Das is a non-believer in God. Does it matter if Das is a Hindu or a Baptist? A penny is a penny. A frog is a frog. Why take the effort to remove the words that are clearly there? In God We Trust. Is God taboo? Beck, Sharpton and others sure don’t think so.
The Microhyla nepenthicola, is Asia’s smallest frog. It is all rather ironic that an acronym for F.R.O.G. is, Finally Relying On God.
Beck is a Mormon, Sharpton is a Pentecostal/Baptist, and the jury still debates what President Obama’s religion is. I don’t know what religion Abe Lincoln was but, “Lincoln read the Bible regularly and was committed to God and morality throughout his life. Some historians call him a Deist,” wrote http://www.adherents.com/people/pl/Abraham_Lincoln.html
Lincoln believed in God and freed millions from slavery. Obama was sworn in on his Bible. ”Malia Obama, the 10-year-old daughter of President-elect Obama, plans to make herself right at home in the White House and has already called dibs on using Abraham Lincoln’s desk for her homework. http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/President44/story?id=6339711&page=1
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character, said “Martin Luther King, delivered 28 August 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C. – The full speech is at http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/mlkihaveadream.htm
Is it honorable in America to protest a Muslim mosque near ground zero in NYC? UncleRUSH, aka Russell Simmons of Def Jam records doesn’t think so in a recent letter to the WSJ. http://globalgrind.com/channel/news/content/1764666/come-with-me-to-tennessee-or-stay-out-of-my-backyard/?pc=1&pi=0
Let’s hope the spirit of Abe Lincoln and Martin Luther King, and the words of Glenn Beck and Al Sharpton bring America together, in the name of God to do what is right, just and moral in this Republic. We are, one nation under God.

This 4th of July, The American Catholic has put into words, ever so eloquently, the true meaning of the day. http://the-american-catholic.com/2010/07/04/time-god-and-the-declaration-of-independence/ A happy 4th of July to all.
“We are destined for Eternity but in this life we live in Time, which consists of the temporal trinity of past, present and future. The present consists of an often confusing series of disparate events, while the future is a deep mystery to us all. When we recall the past we try to make sense of it all, giving order in our mind and our recollections to what has happened to us individually and collectively.
When we look back at the events leading up to the Declaration of Independence from our vantage point of 234 years in the future, everything seems neat and orderly, an old story that we recall from school, books, television and films. Perhaps to some of us it seems a bit trite and boring. Such was not the way it all appeared to the Founding Fathers. For them it was their present, and a chaotic present it must have seemed. On July 3, 1776 the day before the Declaration was adopted by the Continental Congress, a huge British army of some 30,000 men, all regular troops and superbly equipped, began landing on Staten Island. To oppose them, Washington could only gather together an army of 10,000, many of them untrained militia. In the ensuing campaign, Washington’s army would be beaten time and again, often coming close to destruction. The British would seize New York City, holding it until the end of the war in 1783. So it went throughout the Revolution, with the patriots fighting an uphill battle against the mightiest empire since the fall of Rome. At the end of the war, Washington made this observation:
“A contemplation of the compleat attainment (at a period earlier than could have been expected) of the object for which we contended against so formidable a power cannot but inspire us with astonishment and gratitude. The disadvantageous circumstances on our part, under which the war was undertaken, can never be forgotten. The singular interpositions of Providence in our feeble condition were such, as could scarcely escape the attention of the most unobserving; while the unparalleled perseverance of the Armies of the U States, through almost every possible suffering and discouragement for the space of eight long years, was little short of a standing miracle.”
Such statements as that made by Washington, that the Americans relied upon God in their hour of peril, were not rare in the Revolution. This was symbolized in the “An Appeal to Heaven” flags frequently used by Americans during the Revolution:
One of the reasons we study the past is to help guide our footsteps as we proceed into that unknown land, the future. The Revolution of course is a prime example that the future is always a product of what we do in the present. The Declaration is a brilliant statement of why the Americans were fighting. It would have just been another forgotten piece of paper, however, without the endless efforts of the patriots who fought a lopsided war to make the Independence proclaimed in the Declaration a reality. The patriots realized however that if they depended only upon their own efforts, they labored in vain. During the war petitions to God were unceasing, including a Proclamation of the Continental Congress in 1777 which called for a national day of prayer on December 18th:
It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday, the 18th day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor; and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance; that it may please him graciously to afford his blessings on the governments of these states respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole; to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States the greatest of all blessings, independence and peace; that it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yield its increase; to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Men who are struggling in the present to build a future, do well always to seek the assistance of God who reigns for Eternity. John Adams saw it that way when he wrote to his wife Abigail after the resolution declaring America independent was passed by the Continental Congress on July 2, 1776:
But the Day is past. The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America.
I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”
God Bless America.

As Christians around the world prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas, the United States government continues to battle abortion as part of the health care reform battle.
The way abortions are covered under health care reform is a major obstacle to finalizing the legislation, even though the House and Senate both agree that no federal money should be used. The stumbling block is whether insurance plans that get federal money are completely barred from covering abortions, or whether they can cover it as long as they require customers to write separate checks for the procedure using their own money. …Abortions in the first trimester typically cost between $350 and $900, according to Planned Parenthood. http://apnews.myway.com/article/20091223/D9CP9T4O0.html.
Arguing over the sanctity of life at Christmas is asinine. Go home already, and start over in the New Year.
At 7:16 a.m., the Senate passed on a 60-39 party line vote a sweeping health care bill that will tighten insurance regulations, provide insurance for 31 million more Americans and cost $871 billion over the next decade. “This is for my friend Ted Kennedy, aye,” said Sen. Robert Byrd as he cast his vote. Clearly exhausted, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid mistakenly voted no before changing his vote to yes, which got a laugh in the chamber, especially from Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. via http://www.politico.com/livepulse/1209/BREAKING__Senate_passes_health_bill_.html
The Catholic bishops fired off another letter to the U.S. Senate last night urging opposition to the Democratic healthcare bill poised to pass tomorrow. Despite abortion funding restrictions that have provoked the ire of the leading abortion-rights groups, the bishops say the Senate bill still allows federal funding of abortion coverage and make clear they’ll accept nothing less than the House healthcare bill’s sweeping ban on federal abortion funding. via http://www.usnews.com/blogs/god-and-country/2009/12/23/catholic-bishops-still-opposed-to-senate-health-reform-bill.html
Only God knows what these buffoons will come up with behind closed doors with claims of transparency. In a pork filled bill, shame on everyone of them who basically were bribed with federal money for their state as a means of convincing them to vote for this bill. There is a investigation for everything else, let someone please investigate exactly who and which states will directly benefit. Lumps of coal for them all from Santa.
Even the military has a problem with pregnancy. “Facing criticism over his order banning pregnancies for those in his command in Iraq, a U.S. general has backed off, slightly. While there are still reprimands issued for those violating the order, it does not appear there will be any courts-martial involved. http://www.huliq.com/3257/89902/us-general-defends-iraq-no-pregnancy-order . Trillions in debt, 4200 dead soldiers 31000 wounded in Iraq, throw in Afghanistan and it just makes you sick.

Her hair was up in a pony tail, her favorite dress tied with a bow. Today was Daddy’s Day at school, and she couldn’t wait to go. But her mommy tried to tell her, that she probably should stay home Why the kids might not understand, if she went to school alone. But she was not afraid; she knew just what to say. What to tell her classmates of why he wasn’t there today. But still her mother worried, for her to face this day alone. And that was why once again, she tried to keep her daughter home… But the little girl went to school eager to tell them all. About a dad she never sees a dad who never calls. There were daddies along the wall in back, for everyone to meet. Children squirming impatiently, anxious in their seats One by one the teacher called a student from the class. To introduce their daddy, as seconds slowly passed. At last the teacher called her name, every child turned to stare. Each of them was searching, a man who wasn’t there. ‘Where’s her daddy at?’ She heard a boy call out. ‘She probably doesn’t have one,’ another student dared to shout. And from somewhere near the back, she heard a daddy say, ‘Looks like another deadbeat dad, too busy to waste his day.’ The words did not offend her, as she smiled up at her Mom. And looked back at her teacher, who told her to go on. And with hands behind her back, slowly she began to speak. And out from the mouth of a child, came words incredibly unique. ‘My Daddy couldn’t be here, because he lives so far away. But I know he wishes he could be, since this is such a special day. And though you cannot meet him, I wanted you to know. All about my daddy, and how much he loves me so. He loved to tell me stories he taught me to ride my bike. He surprised me with pink roses, and taught me to fly a kite. We used to share fudge sundaes, and ice cream in a cone. And though you cannot see him. I’m not standing here alone. ‘Cause my daddy’s always with me, even though we are apart I know because he told me, he’ll forever be in my heart.’ With that, her little hand reached up, and lay across her chest. Feeling her own heartbeat, beneath her favorite dress. And from somewhere there in the crowd of dads, her mother stood in tears. Proudly watching her daughter, who was wise beyond her years. For she stood up for the love of a man not in her life. Doing what was best for her, doing what was right. And when she dropped her hand back down, staring straight into the crowd. She finished with a voice so soft, but its message clear and loud. ‘I love my daddy very much, he’s my shining star. And if he could, he’d be here, but heaven’s just too far. You see he is a Marine and died just this past year When a roadside bomb hit his convoy and taught Americans to fear. But sometimes when I close my eyes, it’s like he never went away’ And then she closed her eyes, and saw him there that day. And to her mother’s amazement, she witnessed with surprise. A room full of daddies and children, all starting to close their eyes. Who knows what they saw before them, who knows what they felt inside. Perhaps for merely a second, they saw him at her side. ‘I know you’re with me Daddy,’ to the silence she called out. And what happened next made believers, of those once filled with doubt. Not one in that room could explain it, for each of their eyes had been closed. But there on the desk beside her, was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose. And a child was blessed, if only for a moment, by the love of her shining star. And given the gift of believing, that heaven is never too far. —Author unknown

Debates go on, the debt gets higher, soldiers are dying, people are starving, there are few jobs to be held, and many in America have no insurance. Time to change the channel from C-Span and tune in to God. In a Vatican first, Pope Benedict XVI will celebrate Christmas midnight mass two hours early, at 10:00 pm (1900 GMT) on Thursday. The Vatican is blaming it on his advanced age of 82, so he can get to bed a little earlier before the Urbi et Orbi blessing, Christmas Day Mass.

9-11. The West Nickel Mines School need your help. October 2, 2006.
Described as a Conservative Christian and family man, Charles Carl Roberts, 32, was married and a father of three. On October 2, 2006 he entered a one-room Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster,Pa, took 10 girls hostage, shot them killing five of them before taking his own life as police stormed into the school by breaking through the window. A pregnant woman, three parents with infants, and all fifteen male students were told to leave the school by Roberts.
The reports claim he had been planning the attacks for a week and had brought along wood 2x4s, eye hooks, nails, and chains presumably to be used for securing the victims, and KY jelly apparently to sexually assault the girls.
They were shot execution style in the back of the head. The victims — Naomi Rose Ebersole, 7; Marian Fisher, 13; Mary Liz Miller, 8; and her sister Lena Miller, 7 ; Anna Mae Stoltzfus, 12.
The Amish community after the events put emphasis on forgiveness and reconciliation. An Amish neighbor came the same night to the Roberts’ home and offered forgiveness to the family. Judgment is in God’s hands: `Judge not, that ye be not judged.’”
The West Nickel Mines School was torn down was demolished the following week leaving a quiet pasture. A new one-room schoolhouse, the New Hope School, was built at another location.
The tragedy inspired a Lancaster County man to write about the power of forgiveness. Author Jonas Beiler grew up in an old order Amish family, wrote the book “Think No Evil” http://www.wgal.com/news/21061462/detail.html. His wife is Auntie Anne’s Pretzels founder Anne Beiler. Beiler also had insight into Roberts’ story. In 1975, the Beilers’ 19-month-old daughter Angie was struck and killed by a tractor driven by a relative. http://articles.lancasteronline.com/local/4/242444
The Amish do not normally accept charity and the Foundation’s Nickel Mines School Victims Fund is now closed, interested donors may contribute to the Nickel Mines Accountability Committee to:
1528 Georgetown Rd.
Christiana, PA 17509
“Many of us seemed preoccupied for an explanation of why this happened. There really was no way to make sense of this senseless act. As an Amish mother once said, “All the time the question ‘Why?’ comes to our minds. But we should not expect to be able to understand everything in this life, and should never put a question mark where God has put a period.” Little children were promised the kingdom of heaven.” http://www.amishnews.com/publishersmessages/SchoolShooting.htm
It’s hard not to think no evil when evil took the lives of five little girls, disabled five more and devistated a community. We’ll try, except the axis of evil keeps popping into our thoughts.
