 Born: December 3, 1927       Andy Williams died on Sept. 25 after battling bladder cancer.

I remember Andy Williams hosting ‘The Jackson Five (Michael Jackson), Donny & Marie Osborne on The Andy Williams Show before they became famous. His velvet voice & boyish smile would always be well remembered.

He maybe gone, but his songs & music will live on.

His signature tune “Moon River” happens to be my wife’s favourite, and we used to share this beautiful pleasure.

Andy Williams has died at 84 after a long battle with cancer. The iconic singer’s rep confirmed Williams’ death to Lifeline Live. He died Tuesday night (25 September 2012) at his home in Branson, Mo., after battling bladder cancer for almost a year. Williams was diagnosed with cancer in November 2011 but still continued to perform at his Moon River Theater in Branson even after his devastating diagnosis.

According to the host of NBC’s “The Andy Williams Show” from 1962 to 1971, Williams is known for lending his voice to timeless songs like “Moon River” and “Can’t Help Falling In Love” — songs that led President Ronald Reagan to dub him “a national treasure.” Over his 75-year span in the business, Williams has earned 17 gold and three platinum records.

Would you believe that Williams initially struggled as a solo act and was so broke at one point that he resorted to eating food intended for his two dogs?

“I had no money for food, so I ate it,” he recalled in 2001, “and it actually was damned good.”

Williams is survived by his wife, Debbie, and his three children (his children, Robert, Noelle and Christian), are the product of a previous marriage to French dancer Claudine Longet).

His forever green song “Moon River” is best heard accompanied by Henry Mancini at the piano, and here it is:

Andy Williams would say: “When I hear anybody else sing it, it’s all I can to do stop myself from shouting at the television screen, ’No! That’s my song!’” Williams wrote in his 2009 memoir, titled, fittingly, “Moon River and Me.”

Once dubbed as a “national treasure” by President Ronald Reagan,

retirement was not on his schedule. Williams told the AP in 2001: “I’ll keep going until I get to the point where I can’t get out on stage.”

Now, this great iconic entertainment idol is finally gone!

Obama: His Eligibility As President Questioned

By P Chong                                                                         Fri. 15 Oct. 2010

Obama taking oaths as the 44th President of USA

Constitutional Provisions:

Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution sets forth the eligibility requirements for serving as President of the United States:

“No person except anatural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

Following Ronald Reagan, the film star who rose to be President of theUnited States of American, star like Arnold Schwarzenegger, an Austrian-American, currently serving as the 38th Governor of California will have no hope of becoming like Reagan if the present constitution stands as it is.

It looks to me that Barack Hussein Obama is a foreign “import”all the way from Kenya,a less developed country, in the hope of bringing about a mental revolution by someone, virtually unknown who advocated “change” on his election platform. How he ever get to avoid, evade, cover & hide the issue of being a “natural born citizen” is anybody’s guess & wonder! In US if you can beat the law, everything is legal.

Barack Hussein Obama’s ‘Certification of Live Birth‘ form reveals his Birth Registration was FILED in 1961 but was never fully ACCEPTED by the Hawaiian State Registrar’s Office which is covering this up for political reasons to protect Obama. Give mounting evidence that Obama was not physically born in Hawaii, Obama only stands in time to be committing Misprision of Felony.

This is a national disgrace for the Americans that the entire system of laws including the Constitution and all legal records are being subverted and subordinated to cover up for Obama’s continued fraud on the nation as to his true legal identity. What is so important about this one man that Hawaii is willing to see the nation destroyed by his corruption and lies from birth by his family and continued on all his life by Obama. The man is nothing but a grifter and conman.

As for AKA Obama’s birth in Kenya we hear this from attorney Mario Apuzzo “We have not heard from one international, federal, state, or local police or security agency that Obama’s birth place has been officially confirmed.”

Here’s a spot of suspicion & conspiration. In the investigator’s affidavit dated October 30, 2008, that was filed with a Federal District Court in the case of Berg v. Obama, O8-cv-04083: Obama’s step-grandmother,Sarah Obama, told Bishop McRae, who was in the United States, during a telephonic interview on October 12, 2008, while she was in her home located in Alego-Kogello, Kenya, that was full of security police and people and family who were celebrating then-Senator Obama’s success story, that she witnessed Obama’s birth in Kenya, not the United States. She was adamant about this fact not once but twice. The conversation which was placed on speaker phone was translated into English by “Kweli Shuhubia” and one of the grandmother’s grandsons who were present with the grandmother in the house. After the grandmother made the same statement twice her grandson intervened, saying “No, No, No, He was born in the United States.”

During the interview, the grandmother never changed her reply that she was present when Obama was born in Kenya. The fact that later in the same interview she changed her statement to say that Obama was born in Hawaii does not change the fact that she at first stated twice that she was present when Obama was born in Kenya.

According to report, it is alleged that the Kenyan government authorities have refused to cooperate and have thwarted all efforts by anyone to obtain any documents concerning Obama.

The Kenyan officials are declaring Obama’s birth as “top secret”. With Hawaiian government further covering up his Certification of Live Birth only give cause for suspicion that some sort of political conspiracy is at play. Ultimately, the crux of the legal straw can only lead to the breaking of Obama’s back.

It’s been said that whatever the President does is strictly legal. However enough is enough. The American people has the right to know whether their 44th President is eligible and constitutionally legal to be their Chief Commander.

Away with hidden birth certificate & forged legal documents!

US Extreme Game of Economic Dominoes

~By P Chong

Financial Dominoes

It is as though US is playing an economic game on the world stage, & all the countries are playing along dangling on the string or as cards or domino tablets falling along as “waves of tsunami” sweep over them.

Ever played Dominoes? The global economic fallout or meltdown is kind of similar to the domino effect. The economic hammer or axe knows no friends or foes. Every sphere of human endeavour is sort of interlinked or entwined in the economic meltdown. Like the newspapers, the source of news & information, if not for the bad news there would be no news. Their revenue is fast depleting with decreasing commercial advertisements & deepening deficits. They have to come out fast with a complete menu of alternatives before sinking under.

Paul Volcker, who was the Chairman of the Federal Reserve under United States Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan (from August 1979 to August 1987) & currently Chairma of the newly formed Economic Recovery Advisory Board under President Barack Obama, in his recent address to the Canadians in Toronto as part of the Grano Speakers series, suggested that the banking world could do with more Canadas. He pointed out that the basis of strong banks lies in the traditional commercial banking practices of “taking in money & providing credit” – unlike the high-risk financial highwire acts that brought down Wall Street. In this light, Canada is far better off then the US, Europe or UK & Japan. Trust & confidence are two key words in the world of banking & investment. Paul Volcker really hit the nail on the head.

The crux of the global problem is that US “Financial Frankensteins” spun their vast economic web enveloping & capturing their unsuspecting victims the world over, including the City State of Singapore draining off substantially a great percentage of its assets through its Tamasek’s investments. It’s likened to a worst form of financial cancer spreading without any imminent hope in sight. It’s doom that projects all the gloom without any comfortable room or garden to bloom.

In totality, all the Rescue Packages amount to more than $4 trillion, an amount nearly ten times larger than the budget deficit for all of 2008. In just 30 odd days Obama has earned the distinction of becoming the single profligate spender in history. The $4 trillion is made of $787 billion stimulus package, $3 trillion administration’s bank bailout plan & $275 billion anti-foreclosure plan.

Do you realise how immense or massive US$4 trillion dollars is? Can you visualise it? To help you see the picture here’s a couple of illustrations:

1.If you were a very rich man living at the time of Christ … and you could have started saving $1 billion per year every year thereafter, you’d still be only half way there! You’d need still another 2000 years to finance what Obama has committed to spending in just the one month since he began his presidency.

2. If you could borrow $4 trillion at 6% interest, your interest payments alone would be $240 billion per year, $548 million per day, $761,000 per second.

As can be seen, there is no quick fix solution in monetary terms or time. Of all countries in the world, China is perhaps in the best position in the face of this financial crisis. It keeps saying that it has to take care first of its own internal economy, which is suffering a slowdown in the economic fallout, before it can venture out & extend its helping hands. US however is fast to extend its hands of economic friendship & sealed its relationship with China through its State Secretary Hilary Clinton on her maiden overseas (Asian) overture.

I categorically maintain that it’s GREED that breeds the fall, & it’s GREED that’s swallowing them all!

Benjamin Franklin would say this: “He does not possess wealth; it possesses him.” People can be so materialistic and self-centered that community spirit becomes lacking. It follows that if wealth is lacking & debts are mounting, death would be sounding.

Predictably, some of their policies will help. Most will fail … backfire … and aggravate the crisis. And in the end, a whole new monetary system will be needed. It will be interesting to speculate what will the consequential world order be? Which country will ultimately emerge victoriously & powerfully on the world stage?
