CURRENT NEWS AND EVENTS OCTOBER, 2012
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2012
My good friend, Tim, phoned me on Monday to tell me about something he saw in a glass display case in an antique store last weekend. There was a magazine on display showing the following quote from Elvis in 1977. This just about says it all as to his thinking leading up to August 16.
“If I could walk around and see things without mobs of people and be free, it would be worth a million dollars if only for a week; just being plain little old me instead of just the image would be a relief after 22 years.” The headline of this article read ELVIS DIES OF LONELINESS.
As you can see, by reading the article on my previous page which outlined the shows which Elvis performed all the way back to 1954, he was including 1955 as being part of the past 22 years. Below, again, is the list of shows which he performed in 1955 alone. He was working so very hard in 1954 and 1955 long before the world as a whole had heard of him.

Elvis/Jesse said to me once during our phone conversations “I’ve had a hard life. People don’t think that I have but I have.“
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2012
I came across a very brief interview on Youtube done with Elvis’/Jesse’s mother and father in Sept. 1956 when Elvis returned to Tupelo and gave a concert. It is so rare to have the privilege of hearing his mother’s sweet voice. I love this and hope everyone will enjoy it.
Here is the name of the owner of this video and their written description of the video.

Gladys and Vernon Presley, the parents of Elvis Presley is interviewed on September 26, 1956. When Elvis returned on a tour in the town he was born, and performed on the same stage that he did when he was little.
At the Mississippi-Alabama Fairgrounds.
On September 26, 1956.
“Elvis Presley Day” is proclaimed in Tupelo, Mississippi. Elvis’s parents join him as he returns to the town of his birth as a big star. He performs two shows that day at the Mississippi- Alabama Fair and Dairy Show- the same fair at which he had performed at age 10.
He was feted with a parade down Main Street and proclaimed a favorite son by Gov. J.P. Coleman. The day was capped with a concert where Elvis was greeted by screaming fans.
In this interview his parents are talking about what their favorite Elvis songs are.
This interview is available on : An Evening Show in Tupelo, Elvis – A 50th Anniversary Celebration and on Elvis Speaks- which is where this verison is from.

I have very good news to share tonight. Jesse called me earlier this evening and he is doing very well. He sounded great. When I told him how worried I have been about his surgery, he said that he is up in age and these things come up.
He was very concerned about my health as I was about his…so after we each reassured the other that we are both mending OK…all is well.
As I wrote earlier, Jesse sent me a lovely gold and sapphire necklace for my birthday…so he asked me to post a photo of it on the site. Also, in this same package, Jesse sent me an assortment of jewelry, etc. which his Mama had kept in a drawer all those many years ago. He said he wanted me to have it so that it would not get thrown away. Jesse said that even though he was giving her gifts of gold, diamonds, etc., her taste was not for the expensive flashy things but the more simple things. He said that she had kept all of this and that some of it was given to her by the fans. This is the second assortment of her jewelry which Jesse has sent to me. So, I got out the earlier things as well as the ones which he just sent me last week. I picked out the pieces which would be easiest to see in a photo and have made photos of them tonight. I will display them below for everyone to enjoy. He said that someone may recognize something. Also, displayed below will be the photo of the necklace he sent last week for my birthday. He went out shopping personally to get this precious gift for me. Of course, I shall treasure it for the rest of my life…as I do everything he has given me.
Jesse wants to convey once more that when he left in 1977, he left everything behind. He said that he has stuck by his guns in keeping to the lifestyle which he chose at that time. Just a regular man…living the life that Jesse would have had he lived at birth.
Also, he said that just about everything written about him since 1977 has been done just for money and that most of it is not the truth. He has left those people behind in his prior life. He is very content now to have just a handful of friends who have never tried to make money from our friendships with him. He and I are both so very thankful for all the years that we have been friends. I am so very, very honored that he considers me his “baby sister”. I believe everyone can tell by my web site how very loyal and devoted to him that I am.
This is enlarged for better viewing and is not the actual size of the necklace.

I just came across a very short mention of Elvis in an article about a new book which Kenny Rogers is writing. I enjoyed seeing it and thought others would too.
October 8, 2012
In the mid-1970s, a man approached singer Kenny Rogers after a performance in the lounge at the Las Vegas Hilton. The mysterious stranger simply said, “Hey, man, I really like your music.” Rogers learned later that the fan at the dressing-room door had been Elvis Presley.
Here is the link to the full article:
by NPR Staff
My close friend, Tim, who is a very accomplished musician and has his own Gospel quartet presently, received a very surprising phone call recently. Out of the blue a movie production studio phoned and asked to use his tour bus in a movie being filmed in Nashville. They offered to pay Tim $1000.00 a day for use of the bus. Tim agreed and his bus has already been utilized. They have put the title of the movie on the side of his bus and redecorated the inside with new seat covers, etc. So, I have been very happy to hear all of this as it has unfolded over the past two weeks.
The reason that I am posting all of this on here now is because Tim had no idea of the title of the film nor the topic of the film when he agreed to loan his bus. He was later told, a few days ago, that it will be starring Ashley Judd and others. The most interesting aspect is that the central figure in the film is going to be an Elvis (ETA), Ryan Pelton. The title of the movie is “THE IDENTICAL“. There are going to be actual original Elvis songs as well as some other covers. The movie will cover the 1950’s thru the 1970’s.
The most interesting thing to me is that this is going to be a movie which focuses on Elvis’s spiritual life and his gospel roots based on his church attendance as a child in Tupelo. So, this should be a very fine movie indeed. I can’t wait to see it!!
My dear friend, M J mentioned Ryan Pelton to me several months ago and told me the name of a movie that he was to be involved with and told me the title “THE IDENTICAL“. So, when Tim told me the title this past weekend, it came back to me from my conversation with M. J.
I think it is a wonderful “miracle of synchronicity” that, out of the blue, this film production company called my friend, Tim to arrange to lease his bus for a few days for the movie. They have already put “THE IDENTICAL” on the side of his bus.
I introduced Tim to Jesse several years ago and they have exchanged some correspondence.
I will list a link below to one of the articles which I have located about the movie. You may find others by doing a search for the title and Ryan Pelton.
M J shared with me, during our first conversation about Ryan Pelton, that he was the ETA who was seen walking onto the stage so that Elvis could perform “If I Can Dream” with Celine Dion on American Idol. The video of this performance is available on YouTube. I shall also insert a link to this video below. Ryan is the EPE winner of one of the ETA contests and it is reported that they have said that he is the closest thing to Elvis at this time.
Below are the links which I mentioned above:
New film to highlight mystery of Elvis’ faith (When you read this article, be sure to read the very last sentence which is a quote from Elvis. This is, once again, indicative of his frame of mind the last years of his life as Elvis.)
“Elvis’ short comment was, “Cool!” He then added, “Sometimes life is hell! Maybe I’m already there!”
This comments brings to my mind an account which a lady who lives in Memphis and who knew Elvis personally right up until his “death” wrote to me. I have not asked this lady for permission to quote her on my site, so I won’t mention her name without her explicit permission. Below is what she told me. I shall write to her now and ask if it is all right that I have this posted. I shall remove it, if it is not all right with her.
“Thanks Linda for this site and thank you for your continued love and support to Jesse. I know he deeply appreciates it and I know he needs it. Please give him my love. I hope he remembers me. I knew him for MANY years and we often shared our thoughts and concerns. At one time he trusted me and I hope he remembers. I would love to hear from him again.Let him know I understand why he did what he did. I am a nurse and from the very first day I never believed he died. There are things I do not understand like the last time I talked to him as Elvis. Was a week to the day that he left us. I was getting gas and he pulled in. He came over to me gave me a hug and said to me ….., please assure me you won’t believe what you are about to read about me. I said Elvis whats wrong he said just promise I said you know I never believe what is written about you. The guys were calling him to come on so he gave me a hug when he raised so I could see his face he had tears in his eyes and I asked what was wrong and his exact words were ” Life has a way of kicking you in the Ass sometimes.” He gave me another quick hug and he was gone. That was the last time I talked to him before he left. The book Elvis What Happened was already out so he was not talking about that; one week later we got the news that Elvis was dead and I never believed it. I had a bond with him. I could and at times now can feel his feelings and I just didn’t feel him gone. Tell him I still love him very much; I understand and I support him.”

I feel that I must add one more article regarding the upcoming election here in the USA. Please accept my apologies to those who don’t agree with my opinion and those who are not from America.
Below is just one example of what we are facing if Obama is re-elected and his Obamacare goes into full effect. Businesses such as the below as well as Drs. and hospitals will be making things more difficult for all of us. Drs. and hospitals are already stating that they will stop accepting Medicare patients. These employees who are changed from full time employees to part time employees will not be reflected in the unemployment figures but will be forced to begin seeking other jobs which are full time…ALL jobs are very scarce now for the unemployed. The ripple effect of Obamacare is never ending.
Also, if Obama is re-elected, his plan is to put America into bankruptcy and then no one will get any Medicare, Social Security nor Medicaid.
I hope and pray that voters will wake up to the truth before Nov. 6th.
Darden Restaurants Tests Hiring Of More Part-Time Employees To Avoid Obamacare Costs
By CANDICE CHOI and RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR 10/09/12 07:24 PM ET EDT
NEW YORK — The owner of Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants is putting more workers on part-time status in a test aimed at limiting costs from President Barack Obama’s health care law.
Darden Restaurants Inc. declined to give details but said the test is only in four markets across the country. The move entails boosting the number of workers on part-time status, meaning they work less than 30 hours a week.
Under the new health care law, companies with 50 or more workers could be hit with fines if they do not provide basic coverage for full-time workers and their dependents. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, those penalties and requirements could significantly boost labor costs for some companies, particularly in low-wage industries such as retail and hospitality, where most jobs don’t come with health benefits.
Darden, which operates more than 2,000 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada, employs about 180,000 people. The company says about 75 percent of its employees are currently part-timers.
Bob McAdam, who heads government affairs and community relations for Darden, said the company is still learning from the tests, which was first reported by the Orlando Sentinel.
“We’re not at a point where we have results,” he said. McAdam also noted that Darden is not alone in looking at ways to keep labor costs in check, with companies across the industry prepping for the new regulations to take effect.
In fact, Paul Keckley, executive director of the Deloitte Center for Health Statistics, noted that follow-up legislation might be needed to ensure that companies do not shift more workers to part-time status to avoid providing coverage.
“There’s not a company in those industries that aren’t looking at this,” Keckley said.
This summer, for example, McDonald’s Corp. Chief Financial Officer Peter Bensen noted in a conference call with investors that the hamburger chain was looking at the many factors that will impact health care costs, including its number of full-time employees.

I received my DVD from Larry Geller yesterday and watched it last night. It is very good and I think everyone will enjoy it. Because I have read all of Larry’s books, there was not much in the DVD which I did not already know. For those who have not read Larry’s books and perhaps are not familiar with Elvis’s spiritual quest and the books which he read, this DVD is very informative. I do recommend it to everyone.
The best price on this DVD will be found on the following web site. I see that it is more expensive from some other sources. This is Larry’s own store site. I thank my good friend, Melinda, who originally located and shared this site address with me.
ELVIS & LARRY: A Journey Shared on DVD
This powerful DVD was filmed at Elvis and Priscilla’s Honeymoon House in Palm Springs, California. Larry Geller takes you on a journey into the heart and soul of Elvis in their most intimate conversations. No matter how much you may already know of Elvis, you will come away feeling that you know him far better for having experienced...
“Elvis and Larry: A Journey Shared.”
* Includes fascinating booklet specially written for this DVD by Larry Geller.
** Contact us for expedited shipping or for quantities over 3 DVDs.
Below is a link from which you may view a short video clip from the forthcoming Sony 2 CD Plus 1 DVD set of the Madison Square Garden shows. This set is being released in honor of the 40th anniversary.
I LOVE the title of this set: ‘Prince From Another Planet‘. As I have explained before, Elvis told Wanda June Hill that he came here from Rigel, the blue star in the Orion constellation. It is my belief that this relates to the blue light which Vernon saw in the sky over their home in Tupelo at the time of the birth of Elvis and Jesse. Of course, this correlates with his later association with Orion the singer and Orion Pictures Corp.
He looks wonderful in the blue suit during this show…
I just stumbled upon a video tape on which you may listen to the Elvis phone conversation from around 1980-1981 which accompanied the book Is Elvis Alive? in 1988 by Gail Brewer-Giorgio. This conversation was thought to have been between Elvis and his friend Ellen Marie Foster. This is the tape which Gail had authenticated by a member of law enforcement in Texas.
I believe that when you listen to this, you can tell for yourself that it is Elvis. I knew immediately that it was him when I heard it back in mid 1988.
I know you will enjoy this.

I see that not many visits are being made to my earlier CURRENT NEWS AND EVENTS PAGES. I would like to suggest that, those who have not been on our site until more recently, you do visit the earlier pages. I have posted just about all of the substantiating material on those pages as we have gone along rather than going back to up date the existing specific topics pages. You will find a wealth of information on these pages. Below is a link to the master page for the CURRENT NEWS AND EVENTS PAGES from which you may easily access each of the pages.
I must apologize that you may encounter a few glitches on these pages, though, due to having moved my site from my earlier site onto this current site. Also, there have been some attacks on my site which have caused some damage to these pages. I just have not had time to go back to fully repair these pages…however, I promise viewing these pages will be well worth your time.
CURRENT NEWS AND EVENTS PAGE 8 is one of my favorites and I think you will enjoy perusing that page. Here is the link to this page:
I thank everyone who visits my site. I earnestly offer you my sincere gratitude for helping to make my site a success.

My good friend, Ron Collamore, Emailed me to say that he heard the same thing which I did the first time that I listened to Jesse’s new CD all the way through. We heard, during the song THAT’S ALL RIGHT, MAMA, that Jesse speaks the phrase “It was a good place to hide.” These are the same words which he spoke during the telephone conversation from 1980-1981 which came out with the 1988 book “Is Elvis Alive?“. I posted the link to a site on which you may hear this conversation a few days ago. Please do take the time to listen to the song and visit the site to listen to the taped conversation. Not only is it the same phrase (except in 1980-1981, he said “…is a good place to hide“), but you will hear that it is the very same voice on the conversation and on the song. Check it out…you will enjoy it.
Here is the link, once more, to the conversation:
Of course, you may hear the song by clicking on the title in the music player which is located at the top of the left menu column and which appears on every page of this site. For those who are new to the site, you may hear all 15 of Jesse’s songs for free from within this music player. If you haven’t listened to them yet, you are in for the treat of a lifetime.

I want to share with everyone that Jesse did phone me late this afternoon. We were able to speak for a few minutes. He said he is feeling well today. I asked if he is doing all right from his recent surgery. He said that he has gotten over that completely.
He did give me a few private messages for me to send on to just a very few people who have been in touch with him through me. I am sorry that I cannot offer to send things to him from everyone. This just simply is not possible…but I do extend my thanks as well as Jesse’s to those friends of mine and his who have written or sent him small gifts.
He told me that there are things which he could share to prove that he is Elvis…as he has said before. We both know that those who refuse to believe that he is Elvis based upon all that we have already shared, will never believe regardless of what we do. But, he does say that there will come a time (a very sad time) when everyone will know the truth.
I will NEVER ask him to provide proof of any kind for any reason.
He said, once more, that “Elvis is gone” but Jesse is here and that he and I will be speaking on the phone for a long time to come.
As always, I am just ecstatic to have had the phone call from him and to know that he is doing well.

Below is an article which everyone should read and digest before voting in November…especially if you are even considering voting for Obama.
Here is the real truth about Obama’s non-involvement in the decision to kill Osama bin Laden. He vetoed such action against bin Laden three times earlier in 2011…so the decision was taken out of his hands. He was playing golf while the decision was being made and carried out and did not even know anything about it until the Navy Seal’s were in Pakistan’s air space.
The decision to raid Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan and kill him was made without President Obama – and actually was kept from him until after the helicopters already were in Pakistani airspace – according to a new report from a retired major general who cites a senior intelligence source.
The raid was handled by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta and others in this way because Obama had vetoed multiple earlier opportunities to attack the man behind the 9/11 terror attacks, the report said.
The report comes from U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, who retired in 1993 as deputy commanding general, Pacific Command, and has served as a senior military analyst for Fox News. He is now chairman of Stand Up America, which calls itself the standard bearer for the conservancy of the U.S. Constitution.
The group has briefed the FBI, Congress, law enforcement and other agencies on terrorism and “anything that affects the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness of our citizenry and way of life.”
In a column published today by WND, Vallely said a “senior and sensitive intelligence community source” affirmed to a Stand Up America research team that Obama “did not know of the raid in Abbottabad to kill Osama bin Laden on May 1, 2011, until after the helicopters with SEAL Team 6 had crossed into Pakistani airspace.”
The source said Obama was notified “at the golf course … which is why he was sitting in the strange sitting position in the picture that documented the White House operations room event.”
The source told Stand Up America that Panetta “was the key player who organized and supported this daring raid.”
“He signed the ‘execute orders’ with only a few people aware: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Adm. Bill Mullen and Gen. David Petraeus.”
The source explained the White House “was closed out of the decision because the president, through Valerie Jarrett, had turned down two or three other earlier proposals.”
Panetta, Vallely’s source reported, “and his covert planning team were extremely frustrated at all the denials, so saw the opportunity slipping away, as implausible as it seems.”
The report said Panetta convinced his other principals to make the decision and received their full-fledged support but the president, according to the official, “remained clueless on the mission.”
“This tremendously serious and sensitive information was relayed by a source who has been very frustrated with the continued dishonesty within the White House,” Vallely reported.
Vallely, who served in Vietnam and retired in 1991 from the U.S. Army as deputy commanding general for the Pacific, previously has called for “We the People” to stop the nation’s “progressive socialist, treasonous death march.”
He graduated from West Point and was commissioned in the Army in 1961. He served in theaters in Europe and the Pacific Rim and saw two tours of combat duty in Vietnam.
CBS has reported that “Obama’s decision to send operatives after Osama bin Laden” was described by White House counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan as “one of the most gutsiest calls of any president.”
However, the Mail Online in London reported a book by Richared Miniter documented that three “kill” missions were canceled by Obama in January, February and March of 2011.
The SEAL mission was in May 2011.
Miniter reported it was Jarrett who kept urging Obama to cancel plans to get bin Laden.
The Ulsterman Report blog earlier said Obama did not make the attack decision.
That blog said, “He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander-in-chief so his secret is safe.”
Why did he veto the killing of bin Laden three times? Perhaps it was because he is a Muslim with an agenda to destroy America and turn it into a socialist nation. Thus the reason for his apologies to those who killed our ambassador and three other Americans. Could it be that he had made a deal with the Muslim terrorists that he would not allow that to happen on his “watch”? Think about it, please.

Obama’s ring: ‘There is no god but Allah’
He’s worn band on wedding-ring finger since before he met Michelle
by Jerome R. CorsiEmail | Archive Jerome R. Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D., is a WND senior staff reporter. He has authored many books, including No. 1 N.Y. Times best-sellers “The Obama Nation” and “Unfit for Command.” Corsi’s latest book is “Where’s the REAL Birth Certificate?”
NEW YORK – As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues.
Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992.
Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no god except Allah.”
Inscription on Obama’s ring
The Shahada is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s prophet.
Sincere recitation of the Shahada is the sole requirement for becoming a Muslim, as it expresses a person’s rejection of all other gods.
Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D., examined photographs of Obama’s ring at WND’s request and concluded that the first half of the Shahada is inscribed on it.
“There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached,” Gabriel told WND.
Jerome Corsi’s “Where’s the REAL Birth Certificate?” carefully documents the story the establishment media still refuses to tell
“Dreams from My Real Father” producer Joel Gilbert, an Arabic speaker and an expert on the Middle East, was the first to conclude that Obama’s ring, reportedly from Indonesia, bore an Islamic inscription.
Photographs published last week by the New Yorker from Obama’s time at Occidental College, taken by fellows students, indicate that the ring Obama wore three decades ago is the one he is wearing in the White House.
As WND reported in July, previously published photos have shown Obama wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger continuously from 1981 at Occidental, through graduation at Columbia in 1983, in a visit to Africa in 1988 and during his time at Harvard from 1988 to 1991. But none, until now, have displayed the ring with enough detail to identify it as the one he currently is wearing.
WND reported a satirical edition of the Harvard Law Review published by students in 1990 contains a mock Dewers Scotch profile advertisement poking fun at Obama. Among a list of Obama’s “Latest Accomplishments” is: “Deflecting Persistent Questioning About Ring On Left Hand.”
The comment suggests the ring was a subject of student curiosity at the time and that Obama was not forthcoming with an explanation.
He still has not explained why he wore the band on his wedding-ring finger before he married Michelle.
Gabriel, born to Muslim parents in Upper Egypt, grew up immersed in Islamic culture. He memorized the Quran at age of 12 and graduated in 1990 with a Masters degree from the prestigious Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the pre-eminent Sunni Muslim institution of learning.
He explained that on Obama’s ring, the declaration “There is no god except Allah” (La Ilaha Illallah) is inscribed in two sections, one above the other.
On the upper section, “There is no god” is written in Arabic letters, from right to left: Lam, Alif, Alif, Lam, Ha.
On the lower section is “except god,” written in Arabic letters from right to left: Alif, Lam, Alif, Alif, Lam, Lam, Ha.
In the lower section, the word “Allah” is written partially on top of the word “except,” noted Gabriel, the author of “Islam and Terrorism” and “Journey Inside the Mind of an Islamic Terrorist.”
It is common in Islamic art and Arabic calligraphy, especially when expressing Quranic messages on jewelry, to artfully place letters on top of each other to fit them into the allotted space.
The exhibit below shows how the Arabic inscription fits over the two parts of the Obama ring.
“There is no God except Allah” overlaid on Obama ring
In an interview during the 2008 presidential campaign, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof questioned Obama about his Islamic education in Indonesia, where he lived from 1967 to 1971.
After acknowledging that he once got in trouble for making faces during Quran study classes in his elementary school, Obama recited for Kristoff the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, the Adhan.
The prayer incorporates the Shahada, the expression of Islamic faith, with each line repeated twice:
Allah is supreme! Allah is supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet
Kristof noted Obama recited the prayer in Arabic “with a first-rate accent.”
“In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset,’” Kristoff wrote.
Joel Gilbert has produced a short video on his view of the ring:
Gabriel told WND that a person wearing a ring with “There is no god except Allah” demonstrates the significance of Islam in his life.
“Christians never use the statement,” he pointed out. “By wearing the Shahada on jewelry, a person communicates that Allah is in control of all circumstances. Allah controls you; Allah is the one and only one.”
Obama, who attended Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago for two decades, has repeatedly insisted he is a Christian.

‘Blessed statement in Islam’
Gabriel emphasized the importance of the Shahada in the profession of faith in Islam.
“Muslims recite the Shahada when they wake up in the morning and before they go to sleep at night,” he said. “It is repeated five times every day in the call to prayer in every mosque. A single honest recitation of the Shahada in Arabic is all that is required for a person to convert to Islam.”
Gabriel believes it would be impossible for Obama not to be aware of what is written on the ring, calling it a “blessed statement in Islam.”
“By wearing this religious statement on one’s hand, it connects the person to Islam,” he said. “It is worn in hopes that Allah’s protections would be with the person, in hopes of gaining favor with Allah.”
He affirmed that Muslim men do wear gold rings, despite prohibitions in Islamic law.
“Though Islamic law prohibits the wearing of gold jewelry by men, it is a widely accepted custom, even in strictly Muslim countries,” he said. “The wearing of gold rings is even more acceptable when it contains a religious message, such as ‘There is no god except Allah.’”
He noted there is also widespread acceptance of men wearing gold jewelry in non-Arab Islamic societies such as Indonesia, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Pakistan, where Muslims generally understand that Muslims are subject to strong influences of local non-Arab cultures.
“Therefore, even though technically prohibited, a Muslim man wearing a gold ring is not looked down upon, especially if the jewelry reflects a love of Islam and a connection to Islamic society,” he said. “An even greater level of acceptance is for businessmen who deal with infidels, because such a person would be regarded as a person of influence.”

‘I have known Islam on three continents’
Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, an expert on Islamic history, noted Obama wore the ring during his high-profile speech in Cairo on June 4, 2009, in the first months of his presidency.
“Now we have a new context for what Obama meant when he told the Islamic audience in Cairo that he has ‘known Islam on three continents,” Gilbert said. “He also told the Cairo audience that he considered it part of his responsibility as president of the United States ‘to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.’ All religious Muslims are by definition required to defend Islam.”
Gilbert’s most recent documentary films on the Middle East are “Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran and The Revolt of Islam” and “Atomic Jihad: Ahmadinejad’s Coming War and Obama’s Politics of Defeat”

The photographs published last week by New Yorker magazine indicate Obama was wearing the ring at Occidental College.
One photo shows Obama sitting alongside Occidental roommate Hasan Chandoo in 1981, apparently waiting for a meal to be served.

In the above photo, the ring’s design can be seen, including a series of parallel bars that distinguish its outer circumference.
The Obama wedding ring
The ring was mentioned in a New York Times article in 2009 recounting the Obamas’ wedding.
In the story, Jodi Kantor described its “intricate gold design,” noting it came from Barack Obama’s boyhood home of Indonesia and was not traditional, like Michelle’s.
Just before the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. pronounced Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson man and wife on the evening of Oct. 3, 1992, he held their wedding rings – signifying their new, enduring bonds – before the guests at Trinity United Church of Christ. Michelle’s was traditional, but Barack’s was an intricate gold design from Indonesia, where he had lived as a boy.
There was no mention in the article that Obama already had been wearing the ring for more than a decade.
The photos of the ring from the 1980s can be compared with more recent photos, such as the ones published by the Huffington Post in 2010 in an article by Anya Strzemien, “Obama’s ‘Intricate’ Indonesian Wedding Band: A CLOSE-UP,” seen here.

Obama Admits He Is A Muslim (repeatedly)

I do sincerely apologize to anyone who is offended by the above truths about Obama. I absolutely feel that this coming election is the most important election in the history of our nation. Everything we have known and loved about America is at stake.
I do know and fully understand that you visit here to read about Elvis who is now Jesse. But this is one of a few places that I have the opportunity to support revealing the truth about what is happening to our nation at the hands of Obama. So I beg your forbearance with me. Thank you.

Richard Sterban who was a member of the Stamps and performed with Elvis for one and a half years is publishing a book. It started out to be an Elvis book but has branched out to encompass the Oak Ridge Boys as well.
Below is one quote about Elvis which he gave in an interview about the book:
Oak Ridge Boys’ singer shares Elvis tales in new book
Richard Sterban has had quite a career in music, not only as the longtime bass singer with the Oak Ridge Boys, but before that, he performed with Elvis Presley as a member of The Stamps.
Sterban has compiled many of his favorite music industry stories in a new book called, “From Elvis to Elvira: My Life on Stage,” that he wrote with Steven Robinson. This is at the same time that the Oak Ridge Boys are busy as ever with three new albums this year, including a new Christmas album called “Christmas Time’s A-Coming,” and are on their annual Christmas tour, including several dates in Branson this month and in November.
Sterban sat down last week to answer a few questions about his book and the band.
Q: What inspired you to write a book?
A: First of all, I didn’t write the book. Those are my words, but it was really written by Steven Robinson, who is perhaps the best Elvis biographer there is. For the last 40 years people have been continually asking me about Elvis. What’s he like? Tell us some Elvis stories. So I approached Steve one day and he loved the idea. But the more we worked on it, the more we realized it had to be more than just Elvis. We (the Stamps) were with Elvis a year and a half. Steve made a point of writing about my biggest decision. I was still playing with Elvis when William Lee Golden called me and said they needed a bass singer in the Oak Ridge Boys. Some people thought I was crazy, but it wasn’t a difficult decision to me. Obviously, history has proven me right. Elvis was huge, but I went on to bigger and better things.
Q: Do you have a favorite Elvis story?
A: I’d say it’s the first time I met him. The Stamps went to Minneapolis where we had a rehearsal with Elvis. He was fashionably late. Eventually, there was this commotion coming down the hallway. There was this entourage, and right in the middle of it was Elvis. I had always liked his music, but when I met him I thought, “No wonder he’s such a star.” He had such a presence. He filled the room.
The admonition found within this Edgar Cayce Thought for the Day certainly was something which Elvis practiced during his career. This is something good for us all to think about and strive toward.
A friend to this site, Liza, Emailed the following photos to me. These are of the Elvis exhibit in São Paulo-Brazil. My heartfelt thanks to Liza for sharing this with us.
The first of her photos which I am displaying so perfectly correlates with the admonition expressed in the above Edgar Cayce Thought for the Day. We all know that this is the manner in which Elvis always lived his life. Even as a little boy, he wanted to give his things away to others. Jesse is still very much the same today…though on a not so grand scale as the elaborate gifts which Elvis gave. I can’t think of anyone who gave more of themselves and shared more of their wealth with others than he did. Elvis…and now Jesse.
The below is a notation which Elvis wrote in one of his books…the philosophy for his life.

Lisa Marie Presley duets with dad Elvis in new video
Mon Oct 15, 2012 5:04pm EDT
(Reuters) – When Lisa Marie Presley said she was done fighting her legacy as the only child of rock ‘n roll king Elvis, she apparently meant it. Presley’s new video, “I Love You Because,” is an emotional duet with her late father.
Due to premiere on Thursday on country music TV channel CMT and CMT.com, the video was recorded in August for the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death.
It was only intended to be viewed by the 25,000 fans at the special anniversary concert in Memphis on August 16, but the response from fans convinced her to let the video play far and wide, CMT said in a press statement on Monday.
Lisa Marie’s latest album, “Storm and Grace,” released in May, saw her embracing her Americana roots while her lyrics address her efforts to find her place in the world as the King’s only daughter.
Presley, who died at the age of 42, recorded “I Love You Because” in July 1954 at Sun Studio in Memphis, the same time he recorded “That’s All Right.”
Producer Sam Phillips deemed it unsuitable for Presley’s first single, and it ended up on Presley’s first album, from 1956, never to be performed by Presley again, according to CMT.
Lisa Marie Presley, 44, recorded her vocals to the song in August at the suggestion of producer T-Bone Burnett, as a special song for fans.
The video features family photos of Presley’s 4-year-old twin girls, Finley and Harper, as well as her son, Benjamin, and daughter, Riley, along with Lisa Marie and Elvis.
“We were really moved when we saw this video,” said CMT’s senior vice president of music strategy, Leslie Fram.
“Lisa Marie and her team were thrilled and so gracious to allow this to be shared,” Fram added.
The single will be available for purchase digitally on Tuesday, and the full video on iTunes on October 25.
Presley also announced a November tour, culminating in an appearance at New York’s Carnegie Hall on November 17.

Here is something for fun:
Below is the link to the Bing.com search results for Elvis and Lisa Marie under IMAGES. This is fun to see!!!
We watched a movie last night, after watching the debate, which fully explains the forces behind Obama and his plans for our nation. I beg and plead that everyone reading this (even if you are not from America) please, please, please watch this film by Joel Gilbert. NOW I understand why Mr. Gilbert went to the lengths which he did to get Jesse to participate in the making of his DVD. NOW I understand why he even had Jesse say that he will come out if Obama is not re-elected. Mr. Gilbert has done all the research to get to the truth behind Obama and he is so committed to exposing the truth that he is even mass mailing out free copies of the DVD of his movie into the swing states. He has mailed out 2.7 million copies. This is mind boggling…he is so committed to this cause that he has spent at a very minimum of 5.5 million dollars to get this truth out to the voters.
My very good friend, Bobbi, sent me the DVD which she received in the mail. I am 1000% behind the truth which Mr. Gilbert has exposed in this DVD. Even if I offend some by saying that I now understand Mr. Gilbert’s motives in going to such extremes as to even involve Jesse in his attempts to get Obama defeated…I cannot say anything other than this: IF OBAMA IS RE-ELECTED WE WILL BECOME A COMMUNIST NATION BEFORE HIS NEXT TERM IS FINISHED. IF HE IS RE-ELECTED, THIS WILL MOST LIKELY BE THE VERY LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION THAT OUR NATION SEES…EVER.
Here is a link to an article about Mr. Gilbert’s mailing of 2.7 million FREE copies to the swing states in his effort to get the truth out to the public. This is how my friend, Bobbi in one of the swing states, received her copy which she gave to me.
I have read about Mr. Gilbert and this film since very early on. Because of my negative feelings about Mr. Gilbert because of his “finding” of Elvis/Jesse and the way in which he did the production of that DVD, I did not take any steps to purchase or see the DVD. That was a huge mistake on my part. I am so very thankful that Bobbi sent me her free copy of the documentary.
The very survival of our nation depends on the truth within this documentary.
Below is a link to a speech which Mr. Gilbert made in July, 2012 to the National Press Club in Washington DC
Dreams from My Real Father: Director Joel Gilbert at National Press Club, Washington DC

DREAMS FROM MY REAL FATHER…A story of Reds and Deception.
Please do visit and read this article, visit the video links, and take steps to find a way to see this documentary:
Swing-state stunner: ‘Dreams’ mailed to 2.7 million
Election battlegrounds will soon see ‘true story’ of Obama’s radical origins
Here is the link to this article which does include links to videos:
Jerome R. Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D., is a WND senior staff reporter. He has authored many books, including No. 1 N.Y. Times best-sellers “The Obama Nation” and “Unfit for Command.” Corsi’s latest book is “Where’s the REAL Birth Certificate?”
Filmmaker Joel Gilbert has mailed 2.7 million copies of his full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father” to households in key swing states, with 1.5 million going to Florida, 700,000 to Colorado and 500,000 to Iowa.
The mass distribution follows a mailing last month in which Gilbert sent 1.38 million DVDs of “Dreams from My Real Father” to households in swing state Ohio along with 100,000 to New Hampshire and 8
Gilbert told WND the direct mail program aims to bypass the establishment media blackout on his film.
“It’s shocking that in the land of the First Amendment, in the ‘information age’ no less, a state of censorship exists on so many levels in the American media today,” Gilbert said.
Gilbert said that as long as the major media “refuse to cover my film, we are going to continue this publicity campaign by shipping DVDs state-by-state, million-by-million, until the media covers the findings in ‘Dreams from My Real Father.’”
Gilbert argues in the documentary that Frank Marshall Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the real, biological and ideological father of Barack Obama, not Barack Obama, the Kenyan, who came from Africa in 1959 to attend the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
“Barack Obama built his political career on personal appeal – the son of a Kenyan goat herder who stood above politics,” he explained.
“However, ‘Dreams from My Real Father’ demonstrates that Obama has a deeply disturbing family background, which he intentionally obscured, to hide a Marxist political foundation. Dreams from My Real father is the story Barack Obama should have told, revealing his true agenda for ‘fundamentally transforming America.’”
The logic behind the direct mail campaign
Gilbert stressed to WND that his DVD has been at the top of the charts since first released, including the No. 1 spot on Amazon.com’s documentary list for weeks.
Establishment media also are reluctant to cover his findings, he said, because it would expose them for not having done their job of investigating Obama’s background
DVD copies of ‘Dreams from My Real Father’
“Barack Obama must now come clean,” Gilbert insisted. “Instead of misrepresenting himself as he did in 2008, Obama should say, ‘My father was a Communist Party propagandist and suspected Soviet agent who indoctrinated me into Marxist ideology in my formative years. Please vote for me so I can destroy the American middle class and create a one-party political system.’”
Gilbert emphasized the extensive research backing the claims made in his film.
“I have been to Hawaii twice researching Obama’s inspiring family story of a Kenyan goat herder father. That is twice as many times as all of the mainstream media combined! Who could have imagined that news organizations with hundreds of reporters, and multi-million dollar budgets, wouldn’t investigate a presidential candidate’s background in 2008 and would ignore doing so again in 2012?”
His research extended to examine Chicago and the roots of the Frank Marshall Davis ideology.
“Davis joined the Communist party in Chicago, only 15 years after the Bolshevik Revolution,” Gilbert said. “You can hear the classic Marxism in Obama’s campaign, the ‘top 1 percent oppressing the 99 percent,’ and ‘you didn’t build your business, it was done on the backs of the proletariat,’ and so on. Marxism is a failed ideology that has no basis in fact in the American reality where the middle class has prospered and the issue of poverty is taken seriously.”
Gilbert told WND he believes the publicity resulting from the mailing of 2.7 million DVDs to Florida, Colorado and Iowa, following his September mailing of 1.38 million to Ohio, New Hampshire and Nevada will help “Dreams from My Real Father” remain relevant for years, whether or not Obama is reelected.
“The president of the United States promoted a false family background to hide a Marxist political foundation he received from his real father, a Communist Party USA propagandist,” he said. “I think this should be a major news story of the young century, an example of investigative journalism by a grassroots film production company versus a corrupt and lazy mainstream media. The mainstream media would not do their jobs, so I did it for them.”
Plan: Mail millions of DVDs
Gilbert said getting the American public to understand the official Obama nativity story is a fabrication will not be an easy task.
“Obama’s election was not a sudden political phenomenon,” he explained. “It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii, and has been quietly infiltrating the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades.”
Gilbert told WND plans are in the works to send millions more DVDs of “Dreams from My Real Father” across the nation.
Worker prepares to mail out ‘Dreams from My Real Father’
He said he wants to distribute the film “state by state, million by million, until the mainstream media covers it.”
Gilbert said he was planning next on a million DVDs being mailed to Pennsylvania, Virginia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois.
“We can manufacture and ship 1 million DVDs per day out of Southern California,” he explained. “In the meantime, the 2.7 million DVD mailing to Florida, Colorado and Iowa households, and following up on the 1.38 million mailing to Ohio, New Hampshire and Nevada should force the mainstream media to pay attention. This will help expand the market for the film into television, video on demand and even internationally.”
“Dreams from My Real Father” mass produced
Gilbert described the mass production effort in a video.
“The media simply can’t ignore these million DVD mailings forever,” Gilbert said. “I encourage everyone who gets a DVD in the mail to watch it, share it with friends and contact the news media to discuss the information in the film.”
Gilbert told WND he hopes his million DVD mailings will stimulate “Dreams of My Real Father” sales, a television deal and possibly even a nationwide theatrical release.
“I got the idea for the free DVD mailer publicity program when I received an email from a Bern Nilson in Denver, Colo.,” Gilbert explained. “He wrote, ‘We are on the verge of losing the Constitution. Freedom and liberty are in jeopardy. As a Vietnam War veteran, I ask, what did I fight for? Please, can you get this information out to millions? It is our only hope!’”
In a now viral video, Gilbert announced the decision to mail millions of DVDs on July 19 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Gilbert has created a “Breaking News” page on the “Dreams from My Real Father” website about his plan to mail 3 million DVDs to households in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Dreams from My Real Father — View Online Now
I am very disturbed by the way the media has distorted the truth to gain their liberal biased objectives.
One thing I will point out to those who watched the debate last night. The moderator Candy Crawley has Obama connections. She attended the wedding of the Obamas and she can be seen in this documentary fawning over Obama during an interview about his book “Dreams From My Father”. Mr. Gilbert has proven in his documentary that the book is a mish mash of fact and fiction. In fact, the book was actually written by Bill Ayers who is shown in Mr. Gilbert’s film stating that he did in fact write the book for Obama.
You may have taken note of the fact that during last night’s debate, Crawley actually spoke up (totally inappropriately) to attempt to dispute Gov. Romney’s statement that Obama flew off to do fund raiser’s the day after the Libya assassination of our ambassador rather than stay in Washington to work on matters related to the attack on our embassy…and that it took about two weeks for Obama and his staff to finally admit that it was indeed a terrorist attack plain and simple. Obama lied and said that he stated it was an act of terror in the Rose Garden on that day. Documentation will prove that he NEVER admitted that it was an act of terrorists until about two full weeks later. He lied and had his administration lie to the American public all of that time saying it was the result of a protest because of the YouTube video. Crawley interjected that Obama DID say it was an act of terror that next day in the Rose Garden. To which the panel of voters actually clapped at her remark. Since when does a panel of voters all taken from one county in one state to ask question in a town hall setting represent a fair view of appropriate questions from people from every state??????? They had been instructed not to show any responses to the answers.
I beg that the voters here in the USA get the liberal media’s spin on things cleared out of their minds and begin to investigate and think for themselves before it is too late for our great nation….provided that it is not already too late.
There is a saying: “Never underestimate the power of ignorant people in large numbers.“ That mentality is what got Obama elected in the first place. People were too lazy to think for themselves and got caught up in the excitement generated by the liberal media, the Hollywood stars and Oprah Winfrey.
As Gov. Romeny stated last night: “We don’t have to live like this!!!“
I close my article by stating this: No, Jesse is not going to come out. I don’t condone the fact that Mr. Gilbert “found” Jesse and distorted Jesse’s truth in the DVD. My feelings about that have not changed one iota. However, I do understand Mr. Gilbert’s passion in getting Obama defeated and I do agree with him on that point 1000%. I may not like the Jesse aspect of his efforts but I do see his reasoning behind it. I suspect that Mr. Gilbert was attempting to raise some of the millions of dollars which he needed to fund his true documentary about Obama when he placed Jesse’s DVD and CD on the market.
I am taking a risk of alienating my visitors by stating my opinion based on knowledge about a political topic. However, my popularity, etc. mean nothing compared to the very salvation of America.
As Jesse said in the DVD and in the rap song on the CD. Anyone can be a hero for America and perhaps this is what God had prepared Elvis for ALL this time.
Thank you once again for your forbearance with me…while I tell the truth about Obama.

This headline is from the Commercial Appeal. They specify that their article may not be copied nor reproduced in any manner so I will just insert the link below. This will be a most interesting new attraction for those visiting Memphis in the future.
Elvis Presley, Al Green among first class of Memphis Music Hall of Fame
This is a photo of Elvis in the same suit which he was wearing when we saw him perform on Saturday, March 20, 1976 during the afternoon show. He was so magnificent!!!! Jesse still is!!!!
There is a new update on Mr. Gilbert’s web site page about his distribution of millions of copies of the movie “Dreams From My REAL Father“. http://www.obamasrealfather.com/breaking_news006/
He is continuing to mail out more free copies in his effort to spread the truth about Obama. The liberal media will not touch his movie because anyone who sees this film will be sickened to think that this man has been in the White House for 4 years and continues to doggedly pursue his goal to destroy our nation from the inside and restructure our nation as a communist dictatorship. This may sound impossible to those who have not been researching and educating themselves about the real man who is now President. Please take time to learn for yourself. On this page, you will be able to watch a short video about Mr. Gilbert’s mass mailing to millions. He is spending many millions of dollars on this effort. He, I and others who now know the truth about Obama’s agenda are literally fighting for the soul of our nation against evil.
Please remember that all that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing. Please do take up this cause and do something!!
Please visit his page and also watch the brief video about his work in getting the truth out: http://youtu.be/5hS1SMMxvGY
1.5 Million DVDs to Florida
700 K to Colorado, 500 K to Iowa
1.2 Million DVDS to Ohio
100 K New Hamp, 100 K Nevada
Next: 3 Million to PA, VA, IL, WI, MI
“Because almost all levels of the mainstream media are suppressing the information in Dreams from My Real Father, my distribution company is mailing millions of free copies of the DVD across the United States.” – Director Joel Gilbert, Washington D.C.
“We are on the verge of losing the constitution. Freedom and liberty are in jeopardy. As a Vietnam war veteran, I ask, what did I fight for? Please, can you get this information out to millions? It is our only hope!” – Bern Nilson, Denver
I do sincerely apologize for taking up time and space on our Elvis/Jesse site with the political topic…but this is my only platform from which to spread the truth. I hope that everyone will take this seriously and check out the video and Mr. Gilbert’s efforts. Then please do tell everyone that you know about the video. I am sorry that I can’t provide a link to a totally free copy of the video. The small fee of $4.99 is nominal compared to the wealth of truth contained in it. Please help to make this video viral as time is growing close for the election.
I still do not agree with Mr. Gilbert’s methods and handling of the DVD ELVIS FOUND ALIVE. But, I am more than willing to set aside my differences with him and applaud this man who is working and giving of himself and his finances to spread the truth and save our great nation.
Elvis/Jesse has always been extremely proud of America, thankful for it, and active in his patriotism and I know he won’t be upset with me for presenting this material on this site. He is fully aware of how I feel about Obama and he understands my fears and concerns.
I shall be sending the copy of the video (which Bobbi sent to me) to Jesse in my weekly package on Friday.
Here is a beautiful reminder of what we are fighting to save:

Elvis performed this song during the show which we saw just 6 days before the show in this video. He was absolutely magnificent and amazing.
Lisa Marie Presley See Her Father’s Spirit in Her Kids
“I Love You Because” Video Shares Family Footage
October 18, 2012; Written by Craig Shelburne
Lisa Marie Presley turned her new music video “I Love You Because” into a family affair. Elvis Presley fans will cherish hearing her sing with her late father and seeing home movie footage of the King, as well as his grandchildren.
Elvis Presley recorded “I Love You Because” in 1954 at the Sun Records studio in Memphis, Tenn. His daughter added her vocals recently in Santa Monica, Calif., after consulting with producer T Bone Burnett who presented her with the idea of “I Love You Because” as a special song for her fans.
To support her recent album, Storm & Grace, Lisa Marie Presley will begin a two-week national tour beginning Nov. 1 in Tunica, Miss. In the meantime, the special video for “I Love You Because” was intended to be viewed only by the 25,000 fans attending an annual Elvis Presley tribute concert in Memphis, but she agreed to share it with CMT. In addition to footage of her parents, the video also features her 4-year-old twin girls Finley and Harper, 19-year-old Benjamin and 23-year-old daughter Riley in never-before-seen family photos.
“Every five years, I try to do something special for the fans as a tribute,” she said during a summer visit to CMT. “I thought, ‘OK, I really want to focus on the fact that I think his spirit lives in his grandchildren — very much.’ I thought it would be special for the fans to see that — to focus the attention on that — which made it intimate and sweet, because the song is like that. It felt really right.”
And how would she describe that spirit?
“Just ‘him,'” she replies. “They’ve all got a little bit of him in them. They all have their own little traits, and I can just sense it, you know?”
In this interview, Presley chats about her Grand Ole Opry debut, her Southern roots and her fondness for country music — especially Hee Haw.
When I saw your son in the video, I had to catch my breath. He looks so much like Elvis. Does he get that reaction a lot?
Presley: He does! He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage! (laughs) Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him.
Why did the offer to sing on the Opry appeal to you? Why was it important for you to be there?
Because I grew up in Memphis, so I know about the Grand Ole Opry and I know about Hee Haw. I’m an admirer of both and always have been. I know the history of it, and it was an honor to be asked, to be honest. I was terrified, but I did it! (laughs)
If Hee Haw was still on, you could have jumped out of the cornfield.
If Hee Haw was still on, I would have been so excited. I loved that show. We did a press conference in the soundstage [where it was filmed]. I was really excited about that actually.
How much has country music influenced the music you’re making now?
I grew up with country music. I was a huge fan of Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Alabama, Lee Greenwood, Barbara Mandrell, Dolly Parton, Hank Williams, all of them. I think when you grow up with it, it’s always there. And where I’m from, it’s always in you. That’s just a natural thing.
How often are you in Nashville?
I’m not here very often. I’m in Memphis a lot, but I don’t get here enough. I drove in from Memphis. I’ve been here a few times. I played the Ryman a few years ago. I’ve come through on tour. A few years ago, someone brought me here to possibly get a deal and do a record here. I felt it was a little too contrived for me. I didn’t want it to be something forced. I wanted it to be something natural. If something is too contrived, I won’t do it.
Can you hear the Southern influence in the music you’re making?
Yes, I can hear it. It’s in me. I’m proud of my Southern roots, without question.
What is it about Southern music that really attracts you and intrigues you?
Just the honesty. The songwriting is so honest and usually gut-wrenching and heartbreaking. Incredible storytelling. That’s the job of great singer-songwriters. That for sure influenced me.
What’s a typical day for you now? Are you living in England?
I’m back and forth. We’re kind of being gypsies at the moment. Someone asked us that earlier and we giggled because they asked us, “Where do you live?” and I said, “Wherever we are.” We’re L.A. and England, back and forth, mostly.
So this record will have a long life then.
Because it’s not a mainstream record. It’s not a pop record. So it’s one of those things where you go with it and follow it where it’s going. We’re just going wherever it leads. There’s not a big plan. It’s just to work it. We all kind of knew it was going to require work.
So when somebody asks you what the album sounds like or what kind of music you’re making, do you find it hard to answer that?
I kind of just come up with this Americana/bluesy/rootsy record. It’s more raw and a more vulnerable record. That’s the only way I can describe it, really. It’s not anything specific. It has elements of everything.
Has it always been a dream of yours to make records?
I’ve always loved music and I’ve always loved writing. So I’ve written my whole life and started songwriting in my early 20s. It’s always been an outlet for me. This is my third record, and it’s something that I love doing.
What is it about writing that satisfies you?
I think it helps me purge whatever demons and trouble. … It helps me process things and exorcise things that are going on or that I’ve seen or that I’ve heard. And I try to take that and phrase it in such a way that other people can relate to it and make it universal. Like when somebody puts a name in a song, sometimes I’m like, “Aargh! Too much information!” I want the listener to make it their own.
Are there any other music projects you’re working on?
No, at the moment we’re just working this record.
Do you have a dream record that you’d like to make someday?
No, I’m really proud of this one, I have to say.

While we are on the topic of duets of this particular song, I want to cover a little ground which I have covered before but which newer visitors to my site may have not seen yet.
Here is a link to a duet of this song with Jerry Lee Lewis and another singer…purported to be Jimmy Ellis who was Orion. I personally have serious doubts about it actually being Jimmy Ellis though. Below you will see my reasons for these doubts…aside from the fact that it sounds remarkably like Elvis.
First of all, here is the video from YouTube:
Published on May 6, 2012 by Steve Wood
I will ask that you please visit my page regarding the album on which this song and others with Jerry Lee and “surprise guest” were ultimately released after having been released as Jerry Lee and “Friend”, also during the Jerry Lee and Orion phase,. Here is the link to this page: http://lindahoodsigmontruth.com/elvisjesse-and-orion-documentation-images/#top
This song and others, which you will see shown listed from the back of the album cover of THE KILLER, THE KING which was released in 1982 AFTER Orion was ending that era of Jimmy Ellis’s career.
All of the songs shown below, as I said, were released earlier under various other names or non-names. But when they were released on this final album on the Roller Skate Records label. It shows Jerry Lee and “Surprise Guest“. As you will see on the back of the album cover, it is “said” that the guest is Elvis. Elvis’s name is not mentioned…but it does not have to be for one to understand who they are saying that it is.
You will see below a statement by Mr. Don Tweedy who was a prominent arranger and producer of music who had worked with Elvis and who is credited on this cover for Kentucky Rain. Please see all of Mr. Tweedy’s professional credits…as you can see he was very active in the entertainment industry and had worked on some very big name shows and with some very successful recording artists. However, you will take note that Elvis Presley is the very first artist listed in his credits.
Mr. Tweedy was obviously someone who was taken seriously in the music and TV industry. He surely would not have put his name on the back of this album stating that in his opinion, the guest is “Elvis”…as you will see he never used Elvis’s name but he leaves no room for doubt about who he believes is on this album.
Keep in mind too that when I said to Jesse that I had always believed that some of the Orion songs were really him, he answered “Yes” and confirmed that I was correct in having the Orion the singer and Orion Pictures material on my site.
Take a look at the images from the album cover below. I won’t include here the artwork from the album cover as you may go to the Orion page to see those images…as well as further details.
So, as I have done before, I leave it to each visitor to form their own opinion regarding who is on this album. I think you know what I believe.
I was blessed with a miracle of synchronicity to have found this album completely by accident. I thank God for all the things He has given me just when I needed them the most to keep me on the straight path where Elvis is concerned.
One interesting fact is that all of the songs on this album had been released by Sun Records from their Nashville location which was then owned by Shelby Singleton. So, if anyone owned the rights to these songs and all royalties generated by these songs, it would have been Sun Records…hands down with no questions asked.
However, when I was publishing my newsletter in 1990, I phoned Sun Records office to ask them about this album, THE KILLER, THE KING on the Roller Skate Records label. Without missing a beat, the gentleman on the phone told me that they had never heard of this album. I explained a little about what was on the album and so forth…but rather than ask me some details about the album so they could file suit to collect their rightful royalties, etc., he offered no further details nor did he ask any of and they were covering for him all those years while he occasionally recorded with Jimmy Ellis as a cover.
me. Rather strange, don’t you think? I feel very safe is saying that if they found out that the songs by Jimmy Ellis were being sold out from under them by some other record label, they would not just shrug it off…unless it is Elvis on the album.
The gentleman’s only response to me was “We never heard of it.”
Some people who attended the Jimmy Ellis ORION shows actually caught a glimpse of TWO Orions. A lady who has become a good friend and lives in Memphis has told me that she knew for a fact that Jimmy Ellis and Elvis/Jesse sometimes traded places…after 1977.
I apologize to those who have been on my site for the entire 3+ years and have seen and heard this before…or even those who go all the way back to my newsletters. It is just that the song which was chosen for the duet with Lisa Marie triggered this whole THE KILLER, THE KING scenario in my mind.
This morning I posted a lengthy article about the full page ad which Billy Graham has run in the Wall Street Journal and which he has given permission to anyone else to run the ad as well.
My computer came under some sort of attack last night and after finally getting it all put back in order, the same attack took place again this morning and, somehow, my article which I had just posted about Rev. Graham disappeared from this page.
I had printed out the article for Jesse and so I have scanned those printed pages and I will display them below. Rev. Graham’s comments absolutely speak in complete opposition to what Obama promotes and has already done in the past.
I am sorry that the following will only be images and not the original article with the links included. Please just copy and paste the links in order to reach those sites.
Here is a transcript of Dr. Billy Graham’s words in his public statement:
The legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is crucial. As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election could be my last. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definitions of marriage between a man and a woman. Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me that America will remain one nation under God.
