After 7+ hours of working on reconstructing another of the damaged pages, I finally have the linked page below restored.
I am so embarrassed because I had no idea that any of my pages were in such bad shape. Everything on that page was a mess. Links no longer worked, images were gone and, somehow, it had lost all of the text formatting. I am not quite sure how all of this damage occurred. I certainly hope that the rest of the pages are not as bad as this one was. I do apologize to anyone who visited this page and found it in that bad state. I did virtually have to totally reconstruct it.
It is an important page and so I do invite everyone to please visit and peruse the large amount of documentation which I have presented proving that Elvis was an active Federal Agent and worked with other law enforcement agencies as well.
Here is the link to the page titled:
ELVIS – FEDERAL & OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT – AGENCIES – ACTIVE DUTY – PHOTOS – DOCUMENTATION
This admonition speaks directly to my mind, heart and soul…
Those who live in this area may find this to be something to look forward to:

LONESOME PARTY By Frankie Paradiso
SO MANY CANDLES ON YOUR BIRTHDAY CAKE
SO VERY FEW HANDS TO SHAKE
PARTY GUESTS CALLED TO APOLOGIZE
LAME EXCUSES AND EVEN MORE WHITE LIESSO YOU KEEP STARING AT THOSE EMPTY CHAIRS
NO MORE FUN AND GAMES TO BE HAD
THIS SORROW MUST BE TOO MUCH TO BEAR
LIKE YOUR SWAN SONG BEFORE YOU FEIGNED DEATH
DEAD TO THE WORLD BUT NOT TO THIS OLD FRIEND
SERENADING YOU FROM AFAR
YOUR ABSENCE DROVE US ‘ROUND THE BEND
ALL YOU LEFT BEHIND’S THIS DEEP BLUE GUITAR
SO YOU’LL CELEBRATE THIS DAY OF MIRTH
ALL BY YOURSELF …
NO-ONE TO WALTZ WITH, TWIRL ‘ROUND OR CLING TO
YET I WISH YOU HAPPY RETURNS AND LET YOU
TWIST AND JIVE, ROCK AND ROLL BY YOURSELF
LEAVE THOSE SILLY OLD FLAMES HIGH UP ON THEIR SHELF
FROM NOW ON YOU’LL LIVE YOUR LIFE SO CAREFREE
YOUR SWEETHEARTS MUST BE PUSHING SIXTY-THREE!
AND ACROSS THE SEVEN SEAS I’LL YELL
LONG LIVE ROCK’S ONLY KING
AND ACROSS THE EM’RALD SEA I’LL TOAST
TO ROCK’S VERY OWN KING
AND ACROSS THE SEAS OF RHYE I’LL HOLLER
LONG MAY YOU RUN, SWEET EXILED KING!
BETTER BELIEVE I’LL BE BACK
BETTER TRUST YOUR INNER VOICE
YOU’D BETTER FOLLOW ORION’S TRACK
FAR AWAY FROM THAT ROLLS ROYCE ...

YEAH, LET IT RAIN
FANDOM’S LIKE A DYING EMBER
ONLY EERIE SHRIEKS REMAIN
THROUGH THE AGES I’LL REMEMBER
BLUE EYES CRYIN’ LIKE AUTUMN RAIN
NOW YOUR QUIFF HAS TURNED TO SILVERY GRAY
VIOLETS ON YOUR GRAVE REMAIN
FRESH AND FRAGRANT, LET’S HOPE THEY MAY
LAST AS LONG AS THIS SONG AND AUTUMN RAIN
SOMEDAY WHEN WE STRUM IN WAIKIKI
WE’LL SING THOSE GOLDEN SONGS AGAIN
SWAY WITH HULA GIRLS DYING TO SEE
YOUR BLUE EYES CRYIN’ IN HAWAIIAN RAIN
LAMAR’S BLUES Music & Lyrics, Guitar & Vocals by Frankie Paradiso
OH LAMAR, WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME IN THE LURCH?
SOME BRIGHTER DAY WE’LL MEET SOMEHOW
MEANWHILE PRAY FOR ME IN THAT OL’ TUPELO CHURCH
OH LAMAR, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
WHERE’S MY GUARDIAN IN THIS HOUR OF NEED?
YOU WERE MY CLOWN, MY NEXT OF KIN
MY BIG BUDDHA, YOUR WORDS I’LL ALWAYS HEED
OH LAMAR, HOW AMUSING
THOSE PING-PONG BALL PRANKS!
YOU WENT REAL FAR
SO I’LL SOB THESE HEARTFELT THANKS
FOR YOUR TRUE FRIENDSHIP
AND PRICELESS LARKS …
RAINY RAVEN Arr. & modified lyrics by Frankie Paradiso, vocals & guitar;
based on the classic Elvis ballad SUPPOSE
THE RAVEN KEPT CROAKING “NEVERMORE”
WERE YOU TO VISIT MY SUNNY SHORE
NO MORE STARS GLOWING IN THE SKY
IN OUR EYES YOU NEVER REALLY DIED
THE RAVEN’S MANTRA DROVE US UP THE WALL
SOME HAD VISIONS, OTHERS HEARD YOUR CALL
YOUR FALLING STAR LIT UP THE SKY SO BRIGHT
IN OUR HEARTS YOU NEVER REALLY DIED
IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO IMAGINE
THE PAIN YOU MUST’VE FELT
BUT IMAGINING NO YOU
IS AS BLINDING AS YOUR DIAMOND BELT
SUPPOSE THERE FLEW NO MORE BLUE BUTTERFLIES
SUPPOSE YOUR EAGLE NEVER CROSSED THE SKIES
SUPPOSE YOUR SUN WOULD NEVER EVER RISE
SUPPOSE YOU’D NEVER HEAR THIS ..
[Repeat verse 1 ad lib]

**********ANOTHER MILESTONE REACHED**********
Our total number of visitors to my site reached 350,000 last night. I had hoped that we would reach that number by or around the 16th. So, I was very pleasantly surprised to see us reach it sooner.
I thank each and every one of my visitors for making this take place. It is so very gratifying to see that so many people all over the world are spending some of their time perusing the truth and documentation which I have presented.
All of the credit for the success of my web site goes to Elvis, who is now Jesse. I am so very, very honored and blessed that I have his precious trust and friendship. It is a most wonderful privilege to be his “voice to the fans who believe in me“.
We shall set our next goal as that of reaching 400,000 total visitors.
The success of my web site is also the direct result of each visitor who has chosen to spend some time looking over my material which documents that Elvis did not die and is Jesse now. I send my heartfelt thanks to each and every person who has played a part in this.
May God continue to bless Jesse, this web site and each person who comes to visit.

My good friend, Joan, shared this with me because it seems relevant to the truth which I am sharing on my site…and the opposition to it. Old beliefs die hard.
This admonition is very special to me:
Well, I have FINALLY completed the reconstruction of one more page. This page also has some significant material on it and so I encourage anyone who has not visited this entire page before, to please do so.
ELVIS’S AIDES TELL OF THE “RETIREMENT” OF ELVIS IN 1977
TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2013
Just an update on a popular subject which we have covered extensively in the past.
Jesse did tell me himself that the photo in the pool-house door really is him. So, we do have two photos which he has told us himself that are of him after 1977.
I do have a page devoted to this topic. However, I just checked and it is one of the pages on which many of the photos and images have been lost. I will work on getting this page corrected very soon.
Here is the link to that page:

Elvis’ California home to soon open to fans
Updated: Aug 04, 2013 11:00 AM EDT
(KMIR/CNN) – Elvis Presley’s Palm Springs, CA home will soon be open to the public.
The King of Rock and Roll bought the house back in 1970.
Since then it has been through several legal disputes, leaving the house in no man’s land.
The first owner after Elvis had money issues so an investor now has ownership. The new owner plans to renovate the home to make it look like it did when Elvis lived there.
He plans to have it open by October.

3-CD box set recalls Elvis Presley’s recording sessions at famed Memphis studio Stax in 1973
( Associated Press ) – FILE – This 1972 file photo shows Elvis Presley during a performance. A three-CD box set slated for release the first week of August 2013 chronicles two recording sessions by Elvis Presley at the renowned Stax Records in Memphis in 1973.
Forty years after Presley’s Stax sessions, RCA Legacy is releasing the three-CD box set “Elvis at Stax: Deluxe Edition” on Tuesday. It’s the first time Presley’s songs recorded at Stax are together in the same release, which also includes outtakes and rare photos.
I have just completed reconstructing the page which is dedicated to The Pool House Door Photo which I referenced in the above article.
Phew!!! That was a very difficult one!

I have news of a phone call from Jesse this afternoon. We just got off the phone a few minutes ago. I was so happy and relieved to get his call as I have been concerned about his recovery from his hip surgery. He is still recuperating and having physical therapy which he says is quite tiring. He says that he is in no hurry to have another surgery.
He thinks he may go to Memphis for a couple of days…as he has done a number of years during August. He says he thinks he can make the trip OK. But, don’t expect to see him…if he is there, it will all be done VERY quietly with no wish for being noticed.
I am just so glad to know that he feels well enough that he may try to get there.
Let’s all continue to keep Jesse in our prayers for healing, safety and protection. That is my daily prayer for him.

For those who have read and viewed all of my Orion Pictures material regarding that company’s movies pertaining to Elvis and later to Jesse, I want to call your attention to the airing of FAREWELL TO THE KING on the MGMHD Channel next week leading up to the 16th. It will air at 11:00 AM on Wednesday, August 14, 2013. On DIRECTV that is channel #567.
To fully appreciate the significance of this movie, one must first listen very closely to one of the last recorded songs by Elvis THE LAST FAREWELL. While watching this movie, you will see that truly Elvis’s song should have been on the soundtrack for this movie. The story in the song and the plot of the movie go hand-in-hand. Plus there are a number of significant “clues” in the movie which do correlate to Elvis and to his choice to “…died once. It meant giving up everything.“
MGM now owns the entire Orion Pictures Library from the years before the company declared bankruptcy. I have read that Orion Pictures is back in business to some extent…but it is not the same company as it once was before their filing for bankruptcy in December of 1991. The really significant thing is that Orion Pictures pulled off a near-death experience of their own on AUGUST 16, 1991!! Below is the news article which proves this:
Elvis’s ex-wife sat on the board of directors of MGM for some time, though I don’t know if she still holds that position or not.
I would love to direct everyone to my three pages devoted to the topic of ORION the singer and ORION PICTURES. You are most welcome to visit, but I just checked and I see that a good part or those pages suffered the damage of losing many images. I apologize for this and am continuing to work on the missing images as time permits me to do so. These pages still have all of the text, video links, etc. on them.
Also, for those who have access to HBOCHD and VOD, you may catch the significant Orion Movie CADILLAC MAN showing this month as well. This one has lots of Elvis correlations in it. It is one of my very favorite Orion movies. You won’t have to try very hard to catch the “Elvisisms” in this one!! It airs just about every year in August.

Thousands of Elvis fans gather around the gates of Graceland each year on August 15 to celebrate the life and legacy of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Fans not able to attend this year’s Candlelight Vigil can watch the ceremony live by subscribing to the Official Elvis YouTube Channel. The YouTube Live stream of this year’s ceremony will take place from 8:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. CT on August 15, 2013.
After an opening ceremony at the gates of Graceland, fans will walk up the driveway to Elvis’ grave-site and back down carrying a candle in quiet remembrance. Gates remain open until all who wish to participate in the procession have done so, which typically takes until the early morning hours of August 16, the anniversary date of Elvis’ passing.
We will also host YouTube Live events during our “Stax Listening Party” on August 13 at 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. CT…

I thought that everyone would like seeing a letter which Jesse wrote back in 2002 during Hinton’s problems. This ties in with the letter which Jesse wrote to the Attorney General of Missouri in December, 2002. Please don’t ask me any questions about any aspects of this letter.
Here are the links to my pages devoted to the topic of Jesse’s letter to the Attorney General of Missouri:
Here is the typed transcript of Jesse’s letter as shown above.
Thank you for your nice letter.
I wish I could help everyone everytime. There have been many disruptions in this. My stroke didn’t help things.
Many people are getting disillusioned. Right now I am trying desperately to correct some matters that need correcting. I am not God.
I know everyone means well, but they do not realize that there are people with lots of money who will pay alot to reveal me. They all mean well but don’t realize the dangers.
I am hoping for everything to calm down.
Please note: I have repaired all three of the above pages regarding Jesse’s letter to the Attorney General of Missouri for which I have provided the links above. There is some very good documentation on these pages and I hope those who have never visited these pages will do so now.

Elvis birthplace sees rise in number of visitors
Published: 8/11 7:50 pm
TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) – Around 75,000 people a year visit the Elvis Presley Birthplace.
However, that number is likely higher because one can visit the birthplace without paying admission.
Organizers say in recent years, those numbers have been growing and it is quite a benefit to Tupelo and the surrounding area.
“It benefits the people that come here, too, because they can come and see where Elvis was born and experience the great people in our community and region,” said Blair Hill, assistant director Elvis Presley Birthplace. “[You know] not only in Tupelo but also throughout northeast Mississippi.”
Those who step foot on the grounds of the birthplace say they come away with a true understanding of where the King of Rock-N-Roll came from.
“Coming here is real humbling, a humbling experience,” adds Samantha Poole, tourist. “Just to see what he did and how he was brought into the world and the path to stardom.”
“We took the tour of the house and I had a great time,” added William Poole, tourist.
Besides the economy showing signs of improving, another key reason as to why more people are visiting the birthplace of Elvis Presley is the fact that this tourist attraction and Graceland have a close working relationship.
“It’s a great partnership,” adds Hill. “I mean, we couldn’t ask for a better partner in this. We can start the story of Elvis of 13 years and then Memphis needs to say they own the rest of the years.”
With the staff adding more attractions to the birthplace, visitors can find so much more to see and do once they arrive and tour the grounds.
“There’s so much more than we thought there would be,” said Emily Ray, tourist. “There’s more than the house, which is what we came here to see. We noticed the chapel and the little church that he went to.”
“We weren’t really expecting anything,” added Melinda Kitts, tourist. “We just, we’re expecting to see the white house that we saw a model of at Graceland. It’s really nice way to kind of end our tour of Elvis.”
Staff members say they’re trying to give the King’s fans as much of an experience as Presley himself did throughout his career.

Today is the anniversary of the passing of Elvis’s and Jesse’s mother. As we all know Friday will be the 36th anniversary of Elvis’s retirement and the first day of Jesse’s new life. My best friend, M J, has written a lovely article commemorating these two anniversaries and has shared it on our Blog page. I want to share it here for everyone to enjoy while thinking back to those two August dates from so many years ago.
I extend my heartfelt thanks to M. J. for sharing this with us all. I know that Jesse will enjoy reading it also.
On This Day… Let us remember…
Her stone simply reads… GLADYS LOVE SMITH PRESLEY April 25, 1912 August 14, 1958 WIFE OF VERNON ELVIS PRESLEY MOTHER OF ELVIS AARON PRESLEY AND JESSIE GARON PRESLEY
SHE WAS A GREAT PERSON, A GREAT WIFE AND MOTHER.
SHE WAS ALSO LOVED BY MANY.
WE LOVED HER DEARLY AND SHE IS SADLY MISSED.
“The Dance”, take 1,” the producer said, matter-of-factly. Keyboards, guitar and drums come together sweetly as the familiar opening bars of the Garth Brooks classic is played. But this is not a Garth Brooks session, this is unlike any recording session ever before, or ever again… “Lookin’ back on the memory of the dance we shared ‘neath the stars above…”, his voice pure magic, still, even after all these years. His emotion, wistful, melancholy. Memory brings forth small glimpses of a past life, frozen in time and space. His eyes read the lyrics, he sings the words. But in his mind’s eye he can see another time, another place. He can see himself as a young man, an Adonis, yes, strong, unafraid, yet fearful, “Will they like me?” A patchwork of memories showing quick scenes frozen. Audiences screaming his name, young teenage girls pulling at their hair, sobbing, crying, screaming uncontrollably. “For a moment all the world was right, how could I have known I’d ever say goodbye…” Images of TV cameras give way to images of sound stages as movie directors yell “Quiet. Action.”, which gives way to a quick glimpse of himself, a duffel bag over his shoulder dressed in his Army uniform, walking down a ship’s gangplank after docking in Germany. “And now, I’m glad, I didn’t know, the way it all would end, the way it all would go…” Fast forward to home again, but now, the house, still there, but it being no longer a home, something missing, someone gone. Quick shots of other movie sound stages, a montage of faces of fellow actors morphs into him, standing alone. Tall, dressed in black leather, cat like, he walks, no… paces, across a small staging area. “Our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain, but I’da had to miss the dance…” The image of black leather is quickly replaced by another image of him. He strides confidently unto a Las Vegas showroom stage, resplendent in white. A jumpsuit adorned with stones of brilliance as lights of every color reflect back off of them. “Holding you, I had everything, for a moment, wasn’t I the king…” His hands reach out to touch, to embrace, to feel fan’s hands extended to him in both adoration and love. Quick glimpses into time catch the frenzy of fan’s reaction to thrown scarves and shared kisses which memory has blurred. Jewels adorn a jumpsuit in a familiar American Eagle design as he sees himself, feels himself, as he readies to sing “American Trilogy”. “But if I’d only known how the king would fall, hey, who’s to say, you know I might have changed it all…” Quick, blurred sketches of himself ill to the point of exhaustion, but still onstage, singing. A body, that only a few years before moved readily to his every thought, now grasping painfully to perform those same commands. A full split became half, as he throws his body’s weight from one leg to the other, ending in a karate kick to the side. Still the most magnificent of performers, he pauses, as he recalls how both time and age had passed in the blink of an eye. The quickest shred of a thought of pages of written word filled with scathing lies and untruths intended to hurt, destroy and torment him, pop up next in his reverie. “And now, I’m glad I didn’t know the way it all would end, the way it all would go…” An August summer day, a plan in place, a plan to run, a life to end, another to be born. A white hearse leading a string of white limousines, a procession of memories, a procession of tears, as both his fans say their goodbye to him, and he recalls his same goodbye to them, and his goodbye to an image of himself. “Our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain, but I’da had to miss the dance…” A new life, a quieter life, a life that perhaps a stillborn babe, might have experienced if he had lived. Jesse’s life. “Yes, my life, it’s better left to chance. I could’ve missed the pain, but I’da had to miss the dance…” His right hand raises with emotion as his fingers touch his hair, white now. His eyes still so blue, as the waters of an expanse of the wide, open sea. Slowly, the small beginnings of a smile form at the sides of his still pefect mouth. His full lips part. “Yeah baby…,yeah… Mmm, mmm, mmm…”

My dearest friend, M. J. sent a CD to me which includes a very interesting brief radio interview done with Elvis in the Summer of 1975. A young D J had scaled the fence at Graceland and was about to be thrown out by security when Elvis, himself, walked up and gave the young man a firm but gentle talking to. Elvis told him if he wanted an interview, to just give him his telephone number and Elvis said he would call him. The young man did just that and about an hour later, Elvis did indeed call and gave him the promised interview.
You will hear how he was thinking at that time…2 years before he chose to retire. It appears that he was not happy and he was not getting to talk to people to get things off his chest.
The D J who aired this clip on his radio show in 1988, did so because of the tape which had come out with Gail Brewer-Giorgio’s 1st book which questioned if Elvis was alive. You will hear all of the 1988 radio segment which includes the 1975 Elvis interview …you also will hear some/or all of the actual tape which accompanied Gail’s book.
This is being shared for comparison purposes only and no copyright infringement is intended. The radio program was “The Buzzard Morning Zoo” on WMMS. The excerpts of the telephone conversation are from the tape which accompanied Gail’s first book in 1988 “THE MOST INCREDIBLE ELVIS PRESLEY STORY EVER TOLD” . The title of the tape was “AN INCREDIBLE INTERVIEW” with G. B. Giorgio © Legend Books, Inc. Jeff Prugh, author and journalist, conducted the interview with Gail.
As you will see, the voice of Elvis in the 1975 radio interview is identical with that of the 1981 telephone conversation. It is believed that Elvis was speaking with a friend, Ellen Marie Foster, during the 1981 telephone conversations on Gail’s tape.
footnote: I just realized that some browsers are having some trouble playing this audio file. I have made some adjustments and I think it should play for everyone now. You will see a small black arrow on the left above…the same type icon which you see on other video and audio files representing the “PLAY” option. When you click on the arrow icon, it should begin playing immediately. I apologize for any inconvenience experienced earlier. Thank you for your patience.

You may recall that I have written several times regarding those who have published the rumor that Elvis was going to appear at Graceland on August 16th, 2013. I tried to forewarn them that this was NOT going to happen.
In one of my recent articles, I promised that I would be right here on August 17th to say “I told you so.” So, I have kept my promise.
I do feel sad for those who really fell for this fantasy. I do know that some were saving up their money to be there for the event. I do not understand the why and the how of these rumors getting started. I hope that, now, these rumors will die and those petitions will be stopped. None of this “noise” being spread has anything, whatsoever, to do with the real Elvis Presley who is now Jesse.
I can promise you, that there will NEVER come a time when the information on my site will be legitimately proven false. The TRUTH NEVER changes.

Conversations on Elvis with Tom Brown
A friend, Angela, Emailed the following to me. I concur with her analysis of the “message” on the poster for his very last show at Indianapolis, Indiana on June 26, 1977. My sincere thanks to Angela for sharing this with us.
“It is a vintage cardboard poster of the last concert that Jesse / Elvis did in Indianapolis, Indiana on June 26, 1977. I know you know about the song / story “Softly As I Leave You.” But, I found it interesting (a message of sorts) that it would be mentioned on this poster of his last concert (since we know he planned his “retirement”). I think it was another hint to those of us who now know that he had to do what he did. I don’t believe he would have lived to be almost 79 years of age now, had he not “softly left.”

PHEW!!!! I finally completed another restoration of a long.g.g.g.g page. This one was a hair-puller-outer! It had so many images and lots of text to format.
For those who have not looked at this page before or recently, I suggest that you take a look. You will need to read it carefully and digest what you read to comprehend the importance of the information in Jesse’s letters which are displayed on this page. It is every bit as solid in the proof that Jesse is Elvis as anything else on this site. The title of this page is: ELVIS/JESSE AND NUMEROLOGY

A good friend, Claudia, was fortunate to be able to be in Memphis for Elvis Week last week. She is friends with a lovely elderly lady who lives there. This lady has kept the original newspaper article which was published about the funeral of Elvis’s mother and she allowed Claudia to have a photo of it. Claudia asked that we share this on the site and with Jesse. My sincerest thanks to Claudia for sharing with us all. She felt that perhaps many have never seen this before.
So very, very sad…

EPE has the complete 2+ hour video of the Candle Light Vigil on YouTube. I wanted to share this in case some may have missed seeing it live.
I have made a DVD of it to send to Jesse ’cause I don’t know if he got to see a tape of it or not.
I just noticed that there is a full length video of the documentary titled GOD IS THE BIGGER ELVIS. This is an interview with Delores Hart in which she speaks of having made movies with Elvis and her life in Hollywood. She explains how she came to leave her acting career and became a Nun. Very lovely…

A good friend to our web site, Aouie, wrote to me recently on our Blog page about an experiment which she has done comparing the key points of Jesse’s photo to a photo of Elvis. She was amazed by what she found. Below is an excerpt of her blog post explaining her completed analysis.
Since then, she has worked on some other photos of Elvis to compare with Jesse and they have all matched. She has arrived at one example which is just perfect. She has Emailed this video to me and I have implanted the link to the video below in order that you may access and play the video.
My heartfelt thanks to Aouie for all of her time, effort and determination to get the videos to me through Emails. We had some technical difficulties, but Aouie persisted until we found a solution.
Here is the excerpt from her initial Blog post:

I am always excited to read your updates in the Current Events; read the blog which is equally interesting. I don’t understand why there are folks who, after reading your website, still do not believe, if they read your whole website, that is.
I was told once by someone who had heavy intelligence work that there are definite ways to ID a person no matter how much plastic surgery they had. Did not tell me much, but I can remember the distance between pupils and cheekbones. I just finished superimposing Jesse’s pic with one of his military photo. Sure enough! Cheekbones, hairline, and pupils are identical. There is no mistaking even for a novice like me. I had to put marks on the pupils and cheekbones but i am not submitting it ‘cuz I’m afraid some may be offended by the marks on Jesse’s face. I am not sure how to download it also but I can find out how if you would like to see it.
Linda, we are very lucky to have you. You are very lucky to have been chosen by Jesse/Elvis. And this is also to say that, indeed, Jesse/Elvis is lucky, too, for his perfect choice of such a sweet and pure soul like you to trust his thoughts.
As always, thank you

I have this uploaded onto my own YouTube channel now.
This post is for the “Elvis Experts” who told me, flat out, that my site would not make it without their “help“…the truth needs no help!!

There have been 9,286 visits (27,133 page views) at lindahoodsigmontruth.com in the past 30 days.
I have known all along that they would not have wasted their time on me had they not felt threatened by the truth which I am telling.
I owe my success to Elvis, who is now Jesse, and to those who love him and wish to know what really took placed on August 16, 1977. Those who love him enough to spend the time to intellectually assess the material on this web site.

I am spending my afternoon working on reconstructing one of my pages. The one I am working on now is ORION – ELVIS/JESSE FACTS. On that page, I have links to YouTube videos of some of the Orion songs which I believe are Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis. I found that one of the videos to which I have links on there no longer exists and so I have been to YouTube to locate a fresh version of the missing song. I did just locate a copy of C C Rider. I was listening to it while I was posting the new link to my page and I just got excited about it all over again. I have been listening to these songs since the summer of 1988…but they never cease to amaze me.
I challenge anyone to listen to this song and try to deny that it is Elvis himself. This should prove to all doubters that Elvis did record some of the Orion songs…exactly as Jesse has told me.
Enjoy!!!!!! This should make your soul rejoice! It does mine! :-))
Was published by Bernd Möller on Oct 6, 2009 who also KNOWS this is Elvis on this song. Here is his title for this video:

My dearest friend M J was looking through some of her keepsakes from one of her visits to Graceland many years ago…soon after Graceland opened to the public. She saw something very interesting in one of her brochures in the section regarding the Lisa Marie plane. In view of the facts regarding Elvis’s involvement with several agencies of the Federal Government, this one comment really does stand out.
M J and I both kind of said “Hm.m.m.m.m.m.” Wonder why the CIA, with all of the planes at it’s disposal, chose to use Elvis’s plane for one of their missions? ”
As I have mentioned before, Jesse has given me his OK to display the page on my site regarding his association with the Federal agencies, as well as with some state, county and city law enforcement agencies.
I am certain that he was honored and pleased to have his own plane be of service in that capacity.
Below are several scans of this brochure with an enlargement of the statement regarding the use of the Lisa Marie by the CIA.
Below is the front of the brochure which features the very beautiful and touching poem written by Mrs. Janelle McComb.

This admonition is definitely a difficult one for me to meet. I believe that God has allowed those who have used and abused me so badly to be in my life for a reason. I have the difficult task of accepting all of the abuse and staying strong in the face of it all. I can only ask that God give me the strength to deal with all of the attacks and abuse in a manner which is for the ultimate greatest good for my soul.
I have been hard at work for a few days (and long.g.g.g.g nights) reconstructing another of my site pages. This one is titled:
ORION – ELVIS/JESSE FACTS
The associated supporting page is titled:
Once more, for those who may have missed this page or have not seen it when it was in full content, I do suggest that you take a look at it. This page is very long and contains a lot of material for reading. It gives some good background information about the facts which I have assembled to show the why and the how of Elvis choosing to continue doing some work in the music industry and movie production industry AFTER 1977 under the name ORION.
I have another page which I created as an addition to the above page…to display the documentation of the facts stated on the above first page. As I said the above page has much written material with links to the second page to view documentation via articles, images, copies of album and VHS covers, etc. I started doing a tiny bit of reconstruction on that page as well…but it is still missing a lot of material. I intend to work on this page as time and health permits until I get it back up to speed as well.
I still have so very many, many pages to reconstruct. Sometimes I wonder if I will live long enough to get it all done. LOL
I think I should explain that I have determined the web host who is to blame for the shambles in which I find my web site. Turns out that it was an oversight on the part of Mark and his staff when they hurriedly moved my huge site to this location. The real villain behind my enormous problems was TIP TOP, my first and only previous web host. They had an agreement, which their customers must accept, to construct a web site through their services. The agreement stated that if the site owner closed the site with them and opened another site on the Internet, that “their layout” was copyrighted and could not be used. Any normal person would construe that to mean that the skeleton of the site could not be copied and moved. What they did NOT tell me, at any point, was that they were going to encrypt my personal material which I placed on my site on their service.
I had paid them for 2 more years in advance when I chose to move my site. Since they would not refund any of my money at all, I told them to just keep my old web site up and running until my prepaid period expired. So, in July, I began getting Emails from them offering to extend my site with them. I weighed the pros and cons and decided to tell them to please just close my old site. When they closed my site, this current site was no longer able to link to my old site with TipTop to gain access to my material which they had encrypted.
I am posting this in order that my visitors may understand why and what I am going through. This encryption meant that when my TipTop site closed…all of my images and some text formatting from my old site vanished from this site. Therefore, I have to go to great lengths to locate the missing images in my own files or to create the new images. Even my copies of my web site here which I have saved do not contain usable images as those were MY images from my old TipTop site. I feel that there should be some legal recourse because they have taken control of MY PERSONAL MATERIAL…WHICH IS THE RESULT OF ALMOST DAILY WORK AND RESEARCH ON MY PART FOR THE PAST 25 YEARS.
Needless to say, I have not been a happy camper when working until 3, 4, 4:30 and even 5 AM repairing MY OWN MATERIAL.
Thus I wish to forewarn anyone who ever considers constructing a web site easily and cheaply, DO NOT WALK…RUN, RUN FAST AS YOU CAN, FROM TIPTOP @ http://www.tiptopwebsite.com/website.php?id=google&gclid=CN-c3tekpLkCFYKi4AodV1QAJA.
They do start out with a quick start up and low fees. But the fees do climb as time goes on in order to have more pages, more images, audio files, etc. and ended up costing me many hundreds of dollars.
They are the web host who allowed my domain name to expire and sold it for $500.00 to a company whose intention was to sabotage my web site and close it down. Those who were visiting my site back in 2011 will recall the horrible nightmare I went through because of that. It was Mark who came forward and offered to recover my domain name and to move my site to his web hosting service. I could never have gotten my domain name back by myself. Mark’s attorney did a lot of work.
Thanks for your patience in allowing me to vent my frustration. This appears to be my only means of recourse.
I also want to apologize and explain that, for the foreseeable future, I probably won’t be able to spend much time responding to E-mails, etc. I have not checked in on my FaceBook pages for about a week and a half. Same holds true for some of my Email addresses. So, if you have attempted to contact me, I do apologize.
My heartfelt thanks to each visitor for bearing with the incomplete content on so many of my pages for the past 6 weeks or so.
On a brighter note, I want to share another of the Orion songs which I believe to be Elvis with Jerry Lee Lewis. This one will lift your spirits, I promise. I listened to it while working on an article about it on my now-reconstructed page and it certainly gave me a quick pick-me-up.
I have owned and listened to this record since the summer of 1988 and I have never lost faith that this really is Elvis.
There is a very long and entangled story about this song which you may read on my above pages.

I have noticed, in posted comments, that some of the visitors have misunderstood the recording years for the Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis/Jesse videos/songs which I have posted this past week.
Those songs are part of the ORION “mysteries” which were recorded either before 1977 or in the years after Elvis retired up until the year 1982.
The dates shown with the videos are the dates on which the owner of the videos uploaded them onto YouTube.

My web site is in a shambles and it is taking all my time trying to restore it. I worked for 3 1/2 hours last night on one page and when I clicked on “update”, it tried to connect to my old site at TipTop and dumped every bit of work I had done. So, I started all over and worked until 4 AM this morning. Phew!!!!
The page which I am in the process of reconstructing now is the second Orion page @
This second Orion page is the documentation images, etc. which substantiate the facts which I presented on the first Orion page. I encourage everyone to take a look at the part of this page which I have gotten restored. There is some really important info in the restored portion. I will be working on the remainder of that page every time I can get to it.
Please pray for me. I am way beyond frustrated. I have always taken pride in having everything on my site documented and in perfect order. Now most of my site is a wreck except for the pages which I have repaired.
Again, I ask that everyone please forgive me for being absent on Facebook, YouTube, and for not responding to comments on the blog page and to Emails.
I wish everyone a wonderful Labor Day weekend.
My dearest friend, M J, posted the following article from The Elvis International Forum on our blog page. I want to share it here with everyone because this story is a perfect example of the reason that Elvis HAD to change his life in order to be a regular person and to enjoy the privacy and freedom to which everyone is entitled.

Elvis Memories by Richard Moreno, A security guard at the Hilton Hotel and a friend of Elvis’
People often ask me what went on in the 30th floor suite at the International Hotel in Las Vegas. There was a lot of craziness, a lot of nonsense.
One quick story that comes to mind is an afternoon when Elvis was bored. It seems that Elvis was pacing around the suite, looking for something to do. He was headed for his bedroom when he decided to stick his head out the front door to look around the elevator area. He opened the front door and looked for the security guard who was stationed just outside. The guard was busy talking to someone on the phone and had his back turned to the door. At about the same time Elvis opened his door, an elevator reached the 30th floor and opened. It was empty, so Elvis took advantage of the moment and ran to the elevator and got on. He later told us that he started down and stopped after a few floors and said a couple got on and seemed shocked. He said he introduced himself and they just small talked as the elevator continued down. The elevator stopped again and more people got on. He introduced himself again, but this time he got off and waited for the elevator going up.
Meanwhile up in the suite, Joe Esposito had started to look for Elvis and couldn’t find him. Joe opened the front door and saw the guard on the phone and asked him if he had seen Elvis. The guard of course answered “no.”
Joe had everyone search the suite and was about to alert the hotel security, when the front door opened and Elvis walked in. Joe asked him where he was and Elvis responded “I went for a walk.”
A lot of craziness went on up there. There are hundreds of stories to be told and I would like to share some with you again.
I thank M J, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing this with all of us.
