God: Reconnect to Him
The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

May 31, 2010 - Beyond Thriller and into Music Publishing
On the Time line we left Michael in 1984. This is where things begin getting dicey.
Revelation 12: 7-12 - And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
Has California become a fascist state? According to William Wagener, there is common criminal element between the anemic charges and trial of Michael’s murderer, Conrad Murray and political prisoner Richard Fine. This is a very interesting video.
Michael’s time line blog, we left off at 1984 - and will continue with the purchase of Michael’s ATV music catalog.
In 1985, Michael wanted to jump on the ATV music catalog that just came up for sale. This was the same catalog that McCartney withdrew his bid for because of the price, after Yoko declined to partner with McCartney in the purchase. John Branca, his then attorney and current executor of the Jackson Estate, negotiated through other interested parties and the catalog was Michael’s for $47.5 million.
During this time Tommy Mottola was still managing artists like John Mellencamp (Cougar for those of you like me, who remember the time…) Branca was Michael’s legal advisor and negotiator and Frank DiLeo was still working for Michael as his business/career manager.
During 1986, Michael was filming Captain EO and it premiered at the Epcot Center on September 12 of that year. This is also the same year the “oxygen chamber” rumor premiered on the pages of “The National Enquirer”. Some reports blame a publicity stunt that got taken way to far by the press. Michael claimed that the photo taken of him trying out a burn unit machine that he paid for was sold with the story by an unscrupulous photographer. It was also during this time that the Vitiligo that Michael contracted became pervasive enough that he had to use body makeup to cover up the discoloration. It wouldn’t be widely known what was causing Michael’s complexion to become pale until a 1993 interview with Oprah.
In the spring of 1987 Michael and Jehovah’s Witnesses parted ways. From more than one source, Michael severed the ties after being told his fame was against church doctrine. Michael was quoted in Schmuley’s book as saying that they had a problem with his hugging people. Michael “excommunicated” himself and took to studying the Bible primarily on his own. His mother testified co-aborating that it was Michael’s decision. This is the same year that the “Elephant Man Bones” story appeared in the tabloids, claiming that Michael had called the London Hospital where they were kept to try to purchase the skeleton of John Merrick. What started out as his interest in the tragic story turned into another “weirdo” story that haunted him for several years. Both this and the rumor about the oxygen chamber, Michael had to finally set publicly strait on the Oprah Winfrey documentary about him.
Later that year in August, “Bad” was released, which was his last album with Quincy Jones. Bad sold 30 million copies world wide and was the only album ever to this date, to spawn five number one singles from one album. Michael embarked on his “BAD” world tour in September in Japan. Sheryl Crow was his backup singer and sang the duet “I Just Can’t Stop Love You” on that tour.
Michael’s U.S. leg of the tour started in February of 1988. The following month, mid-tour, he bought the 2,700 acre ranch in Los Olivos near Santa Barbara that became his “Neverland” Ranch. At the age of 29 and a multi millionaire, he was finally leaving home for “home”. As he finished his touring throughout 1988, he made plans to renovate and turn the ranch into amusement park and playground. He filled the grounds with a zoo, amusement park rides, a train, pool and a theater equipped with hospital beds so that terminally ill children could also be brought in to see the shows he would book there for them.
It was about this time that the lawsuits began dogging Michael. In June a federal lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles on May 24, 1988 by three musicians. The plaintiffs were seeking $400 million from Michael, Lionel Ritchie and other artists claiming the idea for their songs were pirated. “Thriller”, “The Girl is Mine”, “We are the World” and other songs were targeted. This was one of four copyright suits filed against Michael, all of which were found in his favor.
Also during the “BAD” tour, Michael visited the widow of one of his creative heroes, Charlie Chaplin, in Switzterland. Ms. Oona O’Neil Chaplin told Michael that her husband and Michael had much in common in their rise from poverty to success. Michael fulfilled another childhood dream that day. Charlie’s song “Smile” was sung by his brother Jermaine at Michael’s Memorial. Michael also published his first book, "Moonwalker" at the bequest of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
Michael found another common drive when he met Princess Diana during his European leg of the “BAD” tour. Children. Michael admired Diana’s work with children and organizations dedicated to improving their well being. They became friends. Michael’s song “Tabloid Junkie” alluded to Diana’s death at the hands of a chase posse of paparazzi. During the European tour, Michael made it into the Guiness World Book of Records for the third time, for selling out Wimbley Stadium seven times, for a total of 504,000 spectators. Michael devoted all the proceeds from his hit single “Man in the Mirror” to charity.
Michael began 1989 with the release of “MoonWalker”, a feature length movie summarizing his life and career. Many considered this to be his commercial “peak”. Who knows what would have happened had Michael never met the Chandler family. In 1989, Michael and Frank DiLeo parted ways. It was never revealed what the reason for the split with his business manager. Speculation over whether it was the failure to get “Moonwalker” into U.S. Theaters and fallout over the tabloid stories that some thought DiLeo was responsible for starting, to boost publicity. At this time Tommy Mottola was closing in on his first year as head of CBS records.
Michael’s “BAD” tour actually ended on January 27, 2009, two months after his last scheduled concert during that tour because swollen vocal chords prompted him to reschedule five L.A. shows. All told, the “BAD” tour, with it’s 16 month duration all over the world, 123 concerts and $125 million in revenue became another Guinness record entry.
Later in the summer of 1989, Michael’s family persuaded him to reunite with his brothers for a few concerts, which were supposed to take place in South Korea. The concerts were purely the brother’s idea and promised the Moonies (who were said to have offered $1million of they could get Michael to perform with them), that Michael would do them. The concerts never came to fruition and lawsuits were the result.
Michael spent some time with Ryan White, during June of that year and through the Christmas holiday in 1989 through January of 1990. It would be Ryan’s last. Ryan died from complications from AIDS on April 8, 1990. Michael wrote a song for him in his memory, “Gone too Soon”. Ryan was the child who was kicked out of school when they discovered he had contracted AIDS from a blood transfusion. During the mid to late 1980’s, Michael’s propensity for taking up causes for social underdogs got headlines, but unfortunately not as much as the tabloid rumors. Michael befriended another boy, Dave Rothenburg after the boys father set him on fire, burning 90 percent of his body. He survived with the love and support of his mother and Michael Jackson.
Michael’s entry into the next decade would start off as a tumultuous one. During 1990, Michael spent some of his previous year’s earnings ($125 million in 1989 alone) on charity and setting up his “Heal the World” foundation. He donated $500,000 to the Negro College Fund and began his collection of “home movies” video taping what would be rare, fun times with cousins, siblings, friends and disadvantaged children that visited his ranch. His “You Where There” performance for Sammy Davis Jr.’s 60th birthday won an Emmy nomination that year.
Michael renewed his contract with Sony in 1991, which bought out his original contract with Epic Records in 1986. The contract was a record at the time for any artist, for $100 million dollars. Michael released “Dangerous” album, which to date has sold 32 million copies. In 1992, Michael’s “Heal the World” foundation got into full swing, bringing underprivileged children to the Neverland Ranch for free theme park rides, food and ice cream, and hospitalized children to enjoy shows at his theater. “Heal the World” provided millions of dollars to children who were impoverished in the U.S. and around the world, providing food, medical treatment and clothing.
That year also saw the release of Michael’s second book, “Dancing the Dream”, which was a book of his poetry, and he began his “Dangerous” world tour on June 27, 1992 and didn’t finish until November 11, 1993. Michael’s 1993 saw the heart breaking result of his fame. One of the most vicious lawsuits was about to be filed, attacking the very core of his dream to help children all over the world.
Our next Michael timeline will cover the 1993 allegations through the 2002 Sony battle.
Good night and God Bless.

May 27, 2010 – The Message is Getting Lost
I sit before my computer thinking about all the people in the world who are still asleep. They may never wake up. The tears I cry are more from anger and frustration now than anything else. Indeed it is getting so hard to type that I have to sit back every couple of minutes, compose myself and fight the urge to give up.
I don’t watch T.V. anymore. There is no point. News is no longer news, it’s entertainment. It is badly written reality show full of lies, propaganda and messages by paid sponsors. It is a well funded, corporate welfare program for failed actors. Every commercial, every plug for American Idol, Survivor, Dancing with the Stars, Celebrity Apprentice only confirms my suspicions that there are those that seek to gloss over our conscience with fantasy while they continue to pull the rug of humanity out from under us. God is watching this unfold and just waiting for the numbers to be complete.
Michael’s Battle Is Now Ours
I am not ashamed about the time I have spent on investigating what happened to Michael Jackson. There is not one college professor, accountant, attorney, talk show host, artist, politician or police officer that has done more to try alert people to the loss of our humanity and loss of love for each other than Michael Jackson in our lifetime. . . that is just fact.
As I dig deeper into this mess, I often am stopped in my tracks by amused people who think I have much better ways to spend my time. I have hard time explaining the importance of the message God gave Michael to put forth when it is buried under requests for money for this cause or that in Michael’s name. Everything from sun flowers to $40 string bracelets to radio shows to political agendas. No wonder Michael’s killers are getting off scott-free. In the scramble for recognition as the most dedicated fan, justice is being trampled in the stampede.
I keep asking myself, how can we vindicate this man, unclutter his message and free it from the years of tabloid garbage when his own family cannot even seem to unite long enough to fight for him, let alone his fans?
The pain I feel is not so much that this man’s life was taken for no other reason than money, it is in the obvious fact that even after his murder, people still cannot figure out how to help that man lift the burden of his fame off of him long enough to help the human being underneath. He will never get a decent burial until we can dig him out from under the rubble of apathy.
I have had an incredible opportunity handed to me by someone from my own church, to sit in on a conference to learn about the things that are being manipulated within our country by a powerful few who control the world’s wealth. The speech I heard from one of the speakers echoed the words in one of Michael Jackson’s songs. However, it is not just the United States that is in trouble, it is every human being in every country on this planet. “We’ve had Enough . . . did God say that you could decide . . . who will live and who will die? Let God decide” . . . apparently, we have not yet had enough. We let it continue.
If you want to see what is wrong in this country, you only have to look to Michael Jackson. The corruption of the press and media, the entertainment industry, the music industry, our politicians, judicial system, corporate interests, police force . . . all of it bought and paid for by evil. When you read the story of Michael Jackson, the frightening reality of the greed, corruption, hypocrisy, collusion, indoctrination, bias and harassment driving us toward a new “normal” hits you in the heart like a bullet that explodes on impact, taking life force right out of us.
Michael Jackson was bought, repackaged and sold to us by a media that seeks to hide the agenda of those buying advertising on their airwaves and printed pages. Those companies exchange favors under the crust of public trust with politicians we vote into office . . . brought to our awareness by campaign money supplied by those very companies. Companies profiting from the public trough made possible by the elected elite who form and enforce our tax laws. If you think what happened to Michael Jackson is the isolated tragedy of yet another, over-indulged entertainer who had too much money and not enough discipline, then they have succeeded and you can continue in your blissful sleep of ignorance.
If you think this fight is about Michael Jackson only, your understanding is at best, skin deep.
This is not about pop music. This is not about how many awards Michael has won. It is not about how many sun flowers we can fill his tomb with. It is not about the American Civil Liberties Union, Al Sharpton, The VMA’s, global warming, democrats or republicans. Please!
This is about the battle against the persecution of those trying to expose what is being done to us. The railroading of God-given rights.
Matthew 5:10 - Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Luke 21:12 - But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake.
Michael’s humbleness was not weakness or guilt. His torturer’s abuse of power was not strength or truth.
Isaiah 2:11 - The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
Luke 14:11 - For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
Matthew 18:4 - Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Michael took the word “humble” very seriously. Michael didn’t lash out because he feared God more than he feared those that sought to ruin him. Those that sought to destroy him took Michael’s meekness as vindication of their actions.
Anyone even remotely close to understanding what has happened should be outraged at the media, our judicial system, our politicians and governing powers. If you believe there is a difference from one political party to the next, you too have bought the lie.
Michael Jackson was railroaded in 1993. He was railroaded in 2005 and he was railroaded by the media throughout his career. Despite every interview he gave in which he explained his relationship with God, with Jesus, with children, every interviewer ignored his words and ran over them with insidious suggestions that there was something wrong with his “obsession” with children. It was not an obsession, it was God-given calling. Who else was speaking for these children? Who else would have paid for that liver transplant, those skin grafts, those cancer treatments for that child who was on death’s doorstep? Who else was there to cradle, rock, sing to and show those abandoned children there was someone who remembered and loved them?
Who else with Michael’s world-wide popularity and influence was willing to show them God? Who else was willing to take the beating he did in the press day after day? Who else would have been willing to have his personal and private life eviscerated in a court room full of faith-hostile reporters because he refused to let society bully him out of his mission of helping and saving children?
Michael’s song lyrics and poems tells us that despite his child-like demeanor off stage, he was well read and was more than aware of what was going on in the world. He was trying to warn us about it. Why else would someone so loving, meek and humble be so viciously attacked by the media, justice system in California, college professors and politicians? Evil was behind it.
This video images everything he saw and what was behind it. It's the same song with graphic images of what our world governments have caused.
I know I am not the only one that has sent letters into public officials, the FBI, The IRS and the media concerning what is so blatantly in front of their faces. I have received not one reply back, even from the elected public servants. I haven’t heard from anyone who has received a reply from their efforts either. Any other issue I have written to elected officials about I have received a reply, even if I didn’t agree with their agenda, I would get a form letter back. Over the injustice surrounding Michael Jackson’s murder?
Nothing. Not so much as one, “are you serious” form letter. Not from the media, not from congressmen, not from governors, not from other state attorney generals . . . nothing. My letters have gone into a black hole. The silence is deafening.
The fact that publishers, web sites and online bookstores would allow books written by convicted pedophiles on their lists just because they promote Michael Jackson as the very thing he was long found innocent of, tells me of the intense campaign to continue to silence him and his message.
The information industry, the journalists and reporters in this country ( and other countries) should be hanging their heads in shame at what they have done to this human being. But I doubt they will ever concede to their guilt. It certainly doesn’t help when certain Jackson family members, friends and fans reinforce this behavior by treating Michael’s personal suffering, persecution and murder as another reality show.
Michael’s murder began with the press. Michael’s murder is not the only murder which was publicity-caused. Your own voice, your faith, your personal sovereignty is on the chopping block and if you are too embarrassed to fight for Michael, then please feel free to be selfish and fight for yourself. I chose to fight for Michael because that is who God put out there for the press to crucify. They aren’t the ones that administered the propofol, but they certainly continue to advocate and provide the alibi for those who killed him.
Verification that Michael Jackson is not an isolated case of abuse of power?
Richard Fine This happened in the SAME COUNTY that tried to prosecute Michael Jackson twice. When you attempt to expose corruption and greed, you are persecuted. This is going on at local, national and international levels.
Michael loved God. He loved people. He loved children, he loved adults, the elderly from all political sides, nationalities, religions, colors, economic and ethnic backgrounds. It certainly wasn’t because of the way he was treated. He loved people because “Jesus said to”. He never saw us as a separated and divided people. He never saw any single one of us as a color, a country, a religion or an economic class. He saw us as souls, no one greater or lesser than the other. He saw the powers using our differences to segregate and weaken us.
How can we in all good conscience allow the people who destroyed him to continue to do so?
They killed him. We had to bury him. Don’t let them bury his message. Don’t let all he suffered come to nothing. God put all that work into him. Michael was a willing missionary. The persecution continues. Jackson family, friends, fans and admirers of his work . . . Michael didn’t fight for himself. He fought for you. Remember what this is about. Unite. Don’t throw the fight.
I love you more,
Te amo más,
من دوست دارم,
Je t'aime plus,
Ich liebe dich mehr,
אני אוהב אותך יותר,
मॅँ आपको अधिक प्रेम,
Ti amo più,
Kocham cię więcej,
Te iubesc mai mult,
Я тебя люблю больше,
Jag älskar dig mer,
Sizi daha . . . Because Jesus Said to.

May 26, 2010 – A Michael Jackson Timeline
I guess I am the “day after” person. Yesterday was the 25th. Today, I am crying. It’s hard to research videos of interviews, concerts, interactions with fans, visits with children at hospitals and those of Michael just at home having fun (a rare thing he got to do) with his own children, cousins and family, without your heart getting ripped out at what they did to this man.
This morning, as I walked my husband through the garage to say goodbye to him before he went to work, I watched him open the garage door. I was about to go back inside when I heard him say, “Bonnie, Michael left you something . . .”
I thought he was talking about my brother, who was visiting with us just last weekend. I walked over, expected to see something on my car, but my husband pointed down.
There on the floor, exactly where the garage door comes down to meet the concrete, was a single, perfectly formed, three inch long feather. It was then I realized which “Michael” my husband was talking about. I stepped over it to walk him to his truck, watched him leave, then went back to the feather. It almost looked like someone had tried to push the feather under the garage door. It was inside, but not quite as it lay right where the door comes down.
I picked it up and looked at it. Perfect. It was white toward the quill, grey toward the tips. I turned it over and there was some drizzle of something on the feather. It looked like a very thin line of some kind of glue, dried and shiny. Did someone try to stick it under the door? I don’t know, but it now sits at the base of my computer monitor. This feather is different from the others. The other ones were pure white. This one is not, but it is larger. It looks like the feather of a morning dove. I don’t know where it came from or how it got under my garage door, but it’s here.
Working on Michael’s timeline I believe things started to go sour in the press, right after Michael’s success with Thriller and his accomplishment of being the first black artist to break into MTV.
Everyone knows that Michael was born in 1958 on August 29th. He is the seventh of nine surviving children (Marlon had a twin brother who died at birth). He was the 5th . . . and the 1st of the Jackson 5. He was a cherubic boy with big, shiny eyes, an infectious smile, Fred Astaire feet, James Brown rhythm and a voice you could feel from the inside out.
He made his debut as the lead singer of the Jackson 5 the year I was born, in 1964. He progressed to be the most successful entertainer of all time, and the most awarded entertainer of all time.
Michael’s solo career began in 1971, even though he still performed with his brothers under the Jackson 5. In his early years, he still attended church with his mother as a Jehovah’s Witness.
While Michael has credited his mother with his faith and belief in God, he did not have kind memories of his father. Michael has been interviewed discussing the physical punishments doled out by his father, the rehearsals and performances at seedy bars in the middle of the night even as a young child. One episode Marlon had talked about their father holding a young Michael up by one leg and beating him with his hand on his back and bottom. Michael talked about being called names, being called “ugly”, crawling in a bedroom window at night and scaring Michael with a mask on, giving Michael fears of being kidnapped out of his bedroom.
In 1968 Michael and his brothers signed with Motown after spending four years traveling the Midwest clubs and stripteases performing. They won a local talent show and caught the eye of Diana Ross, who introduced them to Berry Gordy.
In 1972, Michael began working on solo albums and by 1975 had four albums released through Motown with “Got to Be There”, “Ben” and the remake of “Rockin Robin”. The brothers began grappling with Motown to allow them more creative control and they eventually gave up and went packing to Epic Records.
In 1975, the Jackson 5 signed with Epic Records, then a subsidiary of CBS Records (career launches of both Frank DiLeo and Tommy Mottola). The group changed their names to “The Jackson’s” to avoid any licensing battles with Motown.
They started touring internationally. Randy, the youngest boy, joined the group and Jermaine was actually the first to leave the Jackson’s to pursue a solo career. The Jackson’s toured and Michael began writing most of the songs they performed such as “Shake Your Body (down to the ground), “This Place Hotel” and “Can You Feel It”.
Between 1976 and 1984 the Jackson’s put out eight albums and went on world tours. Michael was also testing his acting skills in “The Whiz” in which he played the scarecrow. During filming of the movie, Michael was introduced to Quincy Jones who produced Michael’s next solo album “Off the Wall”.
In 1979, Michael fell and broke his nose during a difficult dance routine. After the rhinoplasty he complained of difficulty with breathing and the change in the quality of his voice. A second rhinoplasty was done and later other nose surgeries. Immediately when he changed the shape of his nose, the tabloids started in about him being “ashamed” of his appearance. No other Hollywood personality has endured so much scrutiny and harassment over corrective or cosmetic surgery before, or since. During this time Frank Dileo came aboard Epic Records as Vice President in charge of promotion.
Quincy Jones and Michael produced the “Off the Wall” album and released it in 1979 through Epic Records. The album was hugely successful, it was the first album to generate four top tens, and three awards at the American Music Awards, two Billboard Music Awards and a Grammy. Michael also secured the largest royalty in the music business – 37% of all wholesale album profits.
In 1982, Michael wrote and performed the song “Someone in the Dark” for the storybook “ET, The Extra-Terrestrial” for which Michael won a Grammy for best children’s album. During this time Michael was already working on the album “Thriller” which was released before Christmas of that year. Never having been beaten by any music album before or since, Thriller :
- Was the biggest pop album ever, of any artist
- Best selling album world wide, ever, selling more than 110 million copies
- #1 on the Billboard 200 for 37 consecutive weeks
- Top 10 of the Billboard 200 for 80 consecutive weeks
- First album to have seven Billboard Top 10 singles
- 29 million shipments qualifying it for double diamond status in the U.S.
- At Michael’s royalty rate, he was making approximately $2 an album
- During this time period Michael was also making record profits off of previous songs, merchandise, the video “The Making of Thriller” sold 350,000 copies.
- Music Video “Thriller” the first music video inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
It was during “Thriller” that Michael was introduced to John Branca, who helped him get financing for the music video “Thriller” by making a deal with Showtime to pay for the rights to the “Making of Thriller”.
In 1984, Michael asked Frank Dileo to take over as his business Manager. During 1984, while filming a Pepsi commercial, the pyrotechnics malfunctioned, igniting Michael’s hair, which burned through to the scalp. The horrifying and painful ordeal forced Michael to hide the scaring and missing hair with wigs and weaves. He never fully recovered from the burns and continued to wear wigs to the day he died. He donated the 1.5 million dollar settlement from Pepsi to the Brotman Medical Center in Culver City, California, which now has a "Michael Jackson Burn Center" in honor of his donation. The person taking photos of Michael in one of the burn unit hyperbaric chambers Michael purchased for them, sold the photo to a tabloid and the story of his “sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber to lengthen his lifespan” story made it’s rounds.
1983 really began the gunning for Michael’s reputation by the press. Stories began to circulate about Michael’s “weirdness”. Everything from Michael Jackson attempting to buy the Elephant Man’s bones, Michael’s changing appearance surgeries, Michael was gay (even though he was dating Brooke Shields at the time), Michael took female hormones to make his voice higher. Most of the rumors Michael ignored until the sheer ridiculousness prompted him to confront the rumors during a live interview with Oprah Winfrey in 1993.
We will end tonight’s update at circa 1984. By now, Michael was already in business with Frank DiLeo as his business manager, John Branca as his attorney during business deals, and Tommy Mottola was managing and mentoring such eighties artists as Hall &Oats, John Cougar Mellencamp, Dianna Ross, Taylor Dayne and Carly Simon. Chances are Mottola and DiLeo were crossing paths here as Dileo was also representing artist Taylor Dayne and had left Epic Records to work with Michael Jackson as his manager. Tommy was working for CBS Records but not until 1987. Michael did not yet own anything but his own songs through CBS records, but he was talking to Paul McCartney about where to put all the money he was now making.
Tomorrow – After Thriller and Into the Music Publishing Business.
May 25, 2010 – Smoking Guns Part 2 - The Convenient Child Molestation Case in 2005
It is no secret, even in the justice department in California, that Tom Sneddon probably needed an exorcist where Michael Jackson was concerned. But few people know how deep the misconduct with Tom Sneddon and his staff, the judges and the police department was in Santa Barbara County. Some other abuses of power were documented, with civil lawsuits filed, here.
Is there a connection to the 2005 child molestation trial (I still hate that word!) and the other business figures in Michael’s life?
Interesting tidbits on the after-math of the trial:
Michael took him and his children and left Neverland Ranch the home he created to give himself and thousands of visiting ill and disadvantaged children a childhood. “I won’t live there again. It’s a house now. It’s not a home anymore.” - Michael Jackson, speaking about Neverland after being acquitted of child molestation charges in 2005. He moved to Bahrain and stayed with the Royal family and Prince Abdullah there in late 2005.
Tom Sneddon licked his wounds from losing a case he spent so much California tax payer money on and broke so many laws trying to win. The press ran their stories that eventually died down to a low roar since Michael was no longer in the country to harass.
Everyone that was working for Michael in a entertainment capacity was let go. Michael was so traumatized by the 15 week long trial, his health had deteriorated and he just wanted to be alone with his children to mend.
John Branca was working for Sony and representing other artists.
Frank Dileo was managing the careers of Taylor Dayne, Jodeci, Laura Branigan, and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. Frank became CEO of ValCom in 2007. His “DiLeo Entertainment Group” is a private company categorized under Entertainment Bureaus and located in Nashville, TN. Current estimates show this company has an annual revenue of less than $500,000 and employs a staff of approximately 1 to 4. It was founded in 2007 and at last reporting had three employees and gross sales of $85,000.
Tommy Mottola is currently heading Universal Music Group in a joint venture with his 50% ownership of a resurrected Casablanca Records.
Sony did their best to destroy Michael’s career and finances through any means necessary to gain control of his half of the Sony/ATV catalog (and the coveted Beatles Catalog included). The smoking gun? The timing and the trial itself. How could anyone not see it coming? Click here
Many maneuverings, banks, financiers and business investors rushed to Michael’s aide (I mean rush to his Music Catalog). Michael now owned half of one of the three largest music publishing businesses in the world). Jermaine the brother rushes Tohme to the aide of his brother, who arranges Tom Barrack and Colony Capital to save Neverland from foreclosure. Did they also try to save the catalog? This is why I cannot understand the involvement of Tohme. Tohme is the only one who was not on Michael’s payroll. He was not an employee. He appeared and disappeared.
There was confusion after Michael’s death about who exactly was managing Michael. It was Tohme, then it was Frank DiLeo, then Tohme said at the hospital that it was him.
Tohme’s background is shadowy at best. Next to no one seems to know anything about him. He is related to Jermaine’s wife, he is related supposedly, to Randy Phillips, or was, as the ex-wife of his sister. He also knows and is/was friends with Tom Barrack of Colony Capital.
Frank Dileo is a old-timer in the music industry, starting as a rackjobber in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He’s been employed in management for CBS Records, Epic Records (both bought out in later years by Sony), RCA Records and the now defunct Bell Records. He has been tied to the Gambino crime family and was a close friend with many of the “indies” (independent record promoters networds) who were mob connected. Interesting article on that here. Today Frank has founded DiLeo Entertainment Group based out of Nashville, Tennessee.
Frank knows just about everyone in Sony, including Michael’s nemesis Tommy Mottola and John Branca. His career with Michael as his manager ended in 1989 abruptly with no explanation. By that time, Michael was already proud owner of the ATV music catalog which included the coveted Beatles songs.
Tommy Mottola also began his music executive career running CBS records. All these men no doubt shook hands in and around the growth of Michael’s career. It is no surprise to see them all as bedfellows during the fallout of Michael’s financial collapse. However that collapse was orchestrated and the orbit around the nucleus of Michael’s empire after his death was intense enough to create a black hole, sucking them all back together once again . . . like one big happy Italian family. But let’s not just blame the Italians. We have some middle east and and Nation of Islam, like space junk which inadvertently got pulled into the gravitational pull, it will be interesting to see who gets sucked into their destruction first.
You can read the rest of the people and their backgrounds here, here and here
This is a short blog tonight. I have been working on a Michael Jackson Timeline. I feel this is the best way to start tying ends together. We have the people, we have the events, now we need the timeline, dating all the way back to the purchase of the ATV catalog.
Goodnight and God Bless you.

Dear Troubador Publishing,
At a time when children are battling for the survival of their innocence and survival from a growing population of sexual predators, the last thing we need to be doing is promoting a book by someone who not only advocates the lowering of the age of consent to twelve, but has been arrested and served time for owning one of the largest collections of child porn in England (possibly the world).
Thomas O`Carroll is writing under the pen name, ‘Carl Toms‘. He is a former chairman of the now defunct Pedophile Information Exchange (PIE) and was at one time a prominent member of IPCE, formerly known as the International Paedophile and Child Emancipation. The goal of O’Carroll and all those connected via the pedophile networks – is to normalize pedophilia in the media and thus the public arena as part of wider, more insidious pro-pedophile agenda. Examples of O’Carroll’s writing are the recent book promoting the normalcy of pedophilia using none other than the deceased Michael Jackson as his subject.
Police Charge Man over Child Sex Ring
Two Jailed Over Large Child Porn Library
“Carl Toms” identifies himself as Thomas O'Carroll on page 572, 577 and 592 of his forthcoming book.
Dual nationality Anglo/Irish writer Thomas O'Carroll, was arrested and charged with distributing child pornography in 1981 and again in 2006. O'Carroll is also a well known activist and advocate for the promotion and acceptance of pedophilia.
If we take Michael Jackson out of the equation in this book, well . . . we don’t have a book. But the subject matter is an abomination all by itself. O’Carroll was arrested for having child porn in his house. Anyone caught with so much as evidence of child porn on their computer in the U.S. is charged and arrested. Why would a publishing house be any less liable of promoting such horrifying behavior? If Troubador needs criminally deviant, child destroying authors to make sales, maybe they should find another business to get into.
If we put Michael Jackson back into the equation, yes, we must discuss the children.
Let’s discuss the 300+Million dollars he poured into children’s charities, hospitals, orphanages not to mention the off-record kindness and compassion he bestowed upon those in need all over the world.
Let’s discuss the tens of thousands of inner city and disadvantaged children who, at Michael’s expense, spent fun-filled weekends running through his property, riding carnival rides, horses, visiting his zoo, swimming in his pool, jumping on his trampoline, watching magic shows and movies in his full sized on grounds theater, basically getting to do what they may otherwise have never gotten to experience.
Let’s also discuss the well being of Michael’s own children, who after losing their father and protector, now have to put up with dodging the same old disgusting rumors born of tabloid greed. How would you feel if someone took your children aside and told them that despite the fact that you were found innocent in a court of law, you were a bad person and hurt children? Can you live with being responsible for inflicting yet more pain on his family?
Speaking of his family, who is currently fighting to get the man who killed their son/brother behind bars, they don’t need to see this garbage. If you aren’t sued by them, chances are the lawyers running Michael’s estate will. Slander in writing is still slander.
I’m writing to you as an advocate and lifelong admirer of Michael Jackson and his contributions to improving the quality of life for children and others in need the world over. Victimizing Michael Jackson after his death is not going to help you sell books, to the contrary people are getting tired of it. The reviews on Amazon.com over another Michael-victimizing book have sadly disappointed the author in sales.
This link promoting your disgusting book by “Toms” on Amazon seems to be already removed. Truth wins eventually.
Freedom of speech is not free and it does not come without responsibility. A lie is a lie and it is not told without consequences. It is time to put a stop to irresponsible writing and publishing. It is not good business to advocate for a convicted child porn proliferator. Not only could you be liable legally, you could be liable criminally.
There exists a veritable army of Michael Jackson advocates who refuse to accept further denigration of Michael Jackson’s character, legacy and reputation. We stand ready to take action against your book, but we would rather you do what is right on your own. If Troubador would like to break into the elite of publishers, there are plenty of opportunities and good authors who write truthfully and don’t victimize others with their works.
I thank you for your time and pray that you will stand on the side of integrity. Do not help this man, Thomas Carroll (‘Carl Toms’) promote causing pain to children by using one of the most brutally abused and persecuted yet giving men of our time.
There is so much more positive out there to publish. Take this opportunity to promote good authors who can positively affect people’s lives.
A voracious reader of inspirational heroes, writer and blogger,

May 24, 2010 – The Smoking Guns Part 1, The businesses
Things have been moving very quickly or should I say, information has been moving very quickly. Sifting through it all and discerning the relevant from the out there in left field is a job all by itself. Only then can we begin matching the links, monkey’s arms notwithstanding. (yes, I’m still obsessing on the barrel of monkeys with the blow-torched plastic arms).
I am going to try not to get sidetracked by the 11 month mark tomorrow. I hate to be negative but I’m sure someone, somewhere out in media-ville will say or print something particularly insensitive just to fill their ego’s with the flood of Michael-defending emails they will inevitably receive. Just try not to give them too much attention and stay on the investigation. It’s hard, I know.
Tohme is the mystery man that no one seems to know anything about. I’m not even sure what side of the fence he is on.
The only information online about Tohme not connected to Michael Jackson’s business or death is on the website TRW Advertising.com James Weller is also listed on this site as one of the principles. TWR Advertising – Tohme’s website according to Fox News. Link to Tohme’s website
This page new work shows commercial running on British T.V. for “King of Pop” This is it concert shows, Disney and corporate video for Colony Capital. Jerry Weller is creative director and writer. Web archive in April 9th 2005 shows Tohme, Rogich and Weller but current information on the website shows only Weller. Since AEG concerts and This is It concerts were advertised in 2009, is this still Tohme’s company and why isn’t it listed anywhere on the ad agency listings? It is also not listed as a business in California, at least not under that name.
Interesting – Earliest web site listing in the web archives is on October 12 of 2004 and nothing before then.
Another tip sent me to the California State Website for Business listings. A TRW Capital Management start up was registered as a California company doing business in California on 9-11-2009, entity number 200925810090. This link on the California web site lists the status of the company as active, Jurisdiction Delaware (surprise!). Entity address is 1999 Avenue of the Stars #2550, Los Angeles, CA 90067.
Searching Delaware business registrations on came up with nothing.
On 4/12/1999 a business was registered for Tohme Trading Company, LLC with a status as canceled.
MJJ Productions, entity number C0944110, address listed as Hayvenhurst, Encino California, status is suspended, agent for service of process is CORPORATION SERVICE COMPANY WHICH WILL DO BUSINESS IN CALIFORNIA AS CSC - LAWYERS INCORPORATING SERVICE . . . the same one as for TRW Capital Management which wasn’t registered until September of 2009. So who is CSC – Lawyers Incorporating Service? A suspended business entity, according to the State of California web site, can happen for one of the following reasons: We suspend businesses for at least one of the following reasons:
• Failure to file one or more tax returns.
• Failure to pay the business' balance due. This can include the penalty for failing to file the annual Statement of Information with the Secretary of State.
So MJJ Productions is suspended. If this is under the Jackson Estate and Branca as executor is supposed to be handling all this, then why is it suspended? When was it suspended? This means that anyone can now apply for this business name. According to Raymone Bain on this web site, in 2007, MJJ Productions is being phased out by TMJC (The Michael Jackson Company) and TMJC was changed from Inc. to LLC in February of that year.
TMJC or The Michael Jackson Company is not found in California. The only listing under inc. is C228420408 /09/2001 SUSPENDED TMJC PROPERTIES, INC. JEFFREY A. UNGER. Under LLC, however TMJC Enterprises, LLC is active and filed in March of 2007. That information is here:
TMJC ENTERPRISES, LLC
Entity Address:8660 MOUNTAIN MEADOW DRIVE Entity City, State, Zip:MOUNTAIN RANCH CA 95246.
Possible Listed Michael Jackson Companies:
The Michael Jackson Company LLC (This is not yet showing up in the Delaware business registry)

MJJ Kingdom LLC (Reg. in CA., Jurisdiction in DE. Reg. on 8/18/2008, did eights replace the sevens?)

Looking under New Horizons only one shows us with a similar agent for service of process and that is Horizon Energy Development.

Interesting new file date of 4/28/2010 for Sunrise Investment Group, LLC, registered in Nevada. No officers listed yet. Will keep an eye on this one to see who shows up. http://nvsos.gov/sosentitysearch/CorpDetails.aspx?lx8nvq=AZsnDuC0x%252fQzTUg6C4JT2w%253d%253d&nt7=0
Colony Capital – Doing business as ColonyGP Affiliated Capital in CA, Reg. in Delaware on 10/20/1992, suspended. Address is in the same building as TWR Management on 1999 Avenue of the Stars but in suite 1200 in Los Angeles. Colony Capital shows original registration in 1970 in California, and is active.
Sunrise Company and Colony Capital, Inc, on October 6, 1997 formed a partnership to pursue the acquisition and development of master-planned residential golf communities nationwide. The partnership, based in Las Vegas, will aggressively pursue the acquisition of residential golf communities, in addition to public and private companies. These are the people rumored to want to develop Neverland. There are also other rumors of mineral value under that land in the form of shale and/or oil. Not that California would ever let them drill.
There is more. For now I just wanted to put what I have for the businesses involved in this thing. There is still more businesses to look into and people linked together.
Month Eleven is tomorrow. It will not be an easy day, but I will have a continuation of this tomorrow. For now keep praying for justice, for safety for Michael’s children and family. Say a prayer for the others that are working on this that are closer to the family.
Goodnight and God Bless!
May 23, 2010 – The Lynching of Justice in California
Yes, it is a lynching. What is going on in California? Is there anyone there that can outbid the bad guys for justice in that state? This didn’t start with Enron and it didn’t start with the Michael Jackson trials either. And it won’t end with California. (I pick on California because they seem to care the least about how transparent this is).
On April 22, 2009 a man named Billy Shaw was pronounced dead at the scene of his home in Cartersville, Alabama. His step daughter, Karrie Willoughby, said she found him in the living room of their home. Cause of death was apparent heart attack.
Karrie Willoughby was a nurse at Chattanooga Medical Center. They started an investigation into Shaw’s death when they discovered that Willoughby had signed out the drug Propofol. They checked blood samples from the deceased Shaw and found Propfol in his blood.
They started proceedings to exhume his body and on May 13, 2009 they exhumed Shaw’s body to perform an autopsy. Read the story here
They discovered that Shaw did not die from a heart attack but was poisoned with propofol by injection. Ms. Willoughby is being held WITHOUT BAIL in a Dekalb County jail. She is being charged with capital murder.
On June 25, 2010 Dr. Conrad Murray killed Michael Joseph Jackson via propofol spike and was left alone to die. In California, if you are Michael Jackson, that is a mistake, not murder. Dr. Murray received a charge of “involuntary manslaughter” and was released on $75,000 bail. He still practices medicine in his Houston Clinic. Unbelievable.
In California, justice gets traded like the stock on the floor of the NYSE and the NASDAQ. In California, men can be thrown in prison without a charge and left there for 15 months because he was getting ready to expose 400 judges in that state who took bribes.
In California, District Attorneys can falsify timelines and falsify evidence after the start of a case and not only escape serving time but finish out their terms without getting disbarred. Heck Sneddon got a building named after him after the millions he squandered trying to frame an innocent man. The corruption in California is not a secret, as one attorney on “On Second Thought” T.V. show testified.
The man who covered this 2005 trial and even mentions a corporate conspiracy getting the Santa Monica justice system involved in the lynching of Michael Jackson (he called it a lynching, I didn’t).
Thousands of letters have gone out to Steve Cooley, Jerry Brown and various state and U.S. senators of California. This person has received no one reply back. I received not even a form letter stating “we appreciate your time in writing us. We value your input . . .” for my trouble. That in itself is unusual considering most of them stand to lose their seats come the next election.
One also has to question why the media has been so silent with the evidence out there. I know I’m rehashing previously trampled topics, but it still leaves me speechless.
Tonight during our sermon in evening church and in honor of Memorial Day (a week early), the message was “Freedom is Not Free”.
John Adams once said, while arguing for a Republic vs a democracy:
“Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”
“A government of laws, and not of men.” John Adams (LA District Attorney, judges and AG have this backwards).
“Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society. “ - John Adams
“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” John Adams
“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent..” – Thomas Jefferson
“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson
I thought these quotes were appropriate given the topic.
Starting tomorrow, we have one more month to pull this together. We can sleep no longer.
Our liberties are being taken away from us at increasing speed. Michael Jackson’s Constitutional rights were violated . . . twice. His right to life was taken. His right to liberty was taken, and his right to the pursuit of happiness completely obliterated.
Richard Fine, while uncovering evidence of the incredible corruption in the justice department, is held in solitary confinement for what is now going on month 16. No charges have been filed against Mr. Fine
Steve Cooley is running for State Attorney General. His campaign was announced after the charge of manslaughter for Dr. Conrad Murray is announced.
If the people behind Michael’s murder are ever going to be brought to justice, this case has got to be investigated outside the LAPD by the Feds. Neither Michael, nor Richard Fine, are ever going to find justice in that state. If they can’t get justice, what makes you think that you will? Your rights are up for the highest bidder.

May 21, 2010 – Would You Lay Down Your Life?
A movie I watched back in the eighties, staring Demi Moore and Michael Biehn. During one re-occurring dream sequence, Demi’s character, in biblical times, is asked by Cartephilis if she would “die for him”. It takes her the entire movie to finally answer “Yes . . . I will die for him!” This willingness to lay down her life for hope for the rest of the world, rights the catastrophes set to befall the world. While this story was not biblically correct, the message was powerful. I will refer back to one of the Bible verses I shared in last night’s update:
John 15:13 - Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends
So what does this really mean and what does this have to do with Michael?
To my knowledge Michael, while making many sacrifices to be sure, never laid down or was in a position to have to forfeit his life for the benefit of another. His life was taken during his struggle to survive everything that happened to him basically since 1993. However, it is what of the life he had, that he gave to others. His fulfillment came from sacrifice. While many times in interviews he said he craved and was always looking for love, he continued to give to those who were the victims of the absence of love.
The last couple of months, I have had a struggle with the reason I embarked on this mission, conviction, whatever you want to call it. I didn’t feel guilty about spending all this time on investigations of the death of someone I never met. But I did question my motives on occasion. What was I expecting to happen? Who was I doing this for? I had already come to the realization that Michael was a wake up call for many of us, including myself. I had already learned that I had the capacity to care, albeit buried under the debris of my own childhood. He was still gone, so why was I still doing this? Did I have more to learn?
Yesterday, while writing the update posted last night, I came upon that Bible verse above for John 15:13. I stopped writing and reflected on that. I thought, would I lay down my life for any of my friends, really?
If it ever came down to an actual choice like that, most of us would dive for cover before we gave it a second thought. It’s in-bred in us to self-protect. It’s instinct. But what of those stories that occasionally pop up in the news about heroic acts, like a soldier jumping on a grenade to save his buddies, or a man jumping into a freezing pond to save a child that fell in, or the mom in Baltimore recently that pushed her baby out of the way of an oncoming car at a cross walk before the vehicle hit and killed her?
According to Michael, he traveled around the world eight times. He lost some poundage during his night-after-night performances on tours that sometimes stretched out over a year with breaks in between cities. During his days in between performances, he visited orphanages and hospitals. He spoke on the phone with other beneficiaries of his generosity and love. He met with consultants on some of the charitable foundations he either founded or helped launch. This is aside from the time spent on the phone with lawyers, in depositions and fielding interview requests surrounding various lawsuits and accusations. Michael continued to give, to appear and to perform until his health got the better of him. During all this as far back as the late 1980’s he was battling Lupus, Vitiligo, insomnia, a bad lower spine from a fall he took during one of his concerts and later arthritis and failing eyesight.
Michael didn’t give his life under the threat of a sword or an M-16. He gave his life to every child and every fan he encountered despite intense and sometimes debilitating physical and emotional pain.
During several interviews, when asked if he would change anything about his childhood, Michael said no. Despite his anguish over a lost childhood, a lost father/son relationship with his father, lost freedom and personal privacy, Michael loved what he did. As he said many, many times, he did it for the children. It wasn’t about money . . . not for him, it was about how many children he could save.
This made me reflect on my own childhood. I remember being asked years ago, during a social, if there was one thing about myself I would change, what would it be. The first word that popped into my head was my childhood. But I didn’t want to have to explain myself, so I put some other mundane subject down on that paper.
Today, after almost eleven months of this journey, I feel differently about what I endured. There is a song that is one of my favorites and a frequently played song on the contemporary Christian radio stations. Before the Morning. The lyrics on the first verse go:
Do you, wonder why you have to
Feel the things that hurt you
If there’s a God who loves you
Where is he now
Maybe, there are things you can’t see
And all those things are happening
To bring a better ending
Some day some how you’ll see, You’ll see
You can see the rest of the lyrics here.
I would not want to relive that childhood. But knowing what I know now, I would do it knowing I would come to the understanding that I have in the last several months. What happened in my childhood was the emotional link God put into place to bring me to this moment; to understand the persecution of a man that before June of last year, I did not know. Without the childhood that I had, I would not be able to understand or feel his pain. That understanding opened my heart. It allowed me to feel again, everything I had protected myself from feeling since childhood.
His struggles taught me more about Christ, about love in it’s divine form, about sacrifice, about serving others and what an honor it is, about giving yourself . . . something I feared doing for so long, about no greater love than this . . .
So now I ask myself, would I lay down my life for a friend? In every sense of that question, the answer is yes. That is what true love calls us to do.
Michael gave up so much to try to make the world’s children healthier, happier, and safer. His artistic ambition was God-given to propel him in front of people on stages across the world. This kind of success does not come without it’s enemies. It was some kind of evil that got behind the people that brought this man down. It won’t stop with Michael. The battle did not end with Michael’s death. Each one of us is it’s next victim.
That is why I fight to expose this. Yes there were men behind this making the decisions but we cannot discount the fact that a deeper evil is at play. A silencer of people of faith.
Michael was an exquisite example of God’s love. He was vocal about his work here and his love for God. So very few people know it compared to the hundreds of millions who have seen Michael perform or who listened to his music and heard his message.
This is why the battle is not over. This is why we must get the truth out. If you want to find the dirt you have to lift up the rug. The rug is cumbersome and I need your help.
Please get the word out about this blog. Encourage people to read it and investigate the links within the text on each update. Pick a person on that chart I posted on this update here, and investigate everything you can find on this person, including their circles of influence if you can find them.
I will be a way for a couple of days to do some research on some new information that a couple of people have given me. This will take some time. I will be back on Monday.
Have a great weekend and God Bless you.

May 20, 2010 – More Evidence of Michael’s Innocence
Revelation 21:8 - But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Some interesting developments came to my attention today. What I learned from what I saw in the news and doing some digging is that it is sometimes better to sit on information then to impulsively act on it. There is more news and distractions showing up now then a couple of months after Michael died. Some news that has little to do with the investigation.
Since last night’s blog, I have learned about the Barry Shaw videos online claiming that he is Michael Jackson’s double. I looked at a couple of them. There are some things about Michael you cannot fake or emulate. Even if Michael did have a double at some of these events or interviews, what is the point of them coming out now but to waste time? Is it to infer that he is possibly still alive? And if that is the purpose of these videos coming out, who stands to benefit if they can convince fans he is still alive?
Maybe those that need people to give up the search for evidence because of hope he is still alive?
Regardless of whether Barry Shaw is a body double or a delusional liar, this does not help Michael nor does it in any way assist in bringing about justice for his murder. It is another trip wire on the path of truth. Step over it and keep moving.
Michael’s innocence is a battle that was won in the court room and lost in the press. It was lost in the press because the press had already condemned him before the investigations really began. This was my very first exposure to a vigilante media.
In 1993, I was twenty-eight years old. My then husband had just retired from the military and we relocated to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. I Never paid attention to the personal life of a celebrity until I heard out of the corner of my ear that Michael Jackson was being accused of child molestation. I froze. That couldn’t be right. I was glued to any news about it from that point until the day they broadcast the press conference from his Neverland Ranch. It was his eyes that told me he was innocent. It was the first time I had heard his voice when he wasn’t singing. He seemed so small and vulnerable. I heard the comments from different reporters and journalists. When I first heard the news, I didn’t believe he did it. When I saw the broadcast, I knew he didn’t do it.
The look in his eyes and the pleading in his voice was like fresh blood to a shark in the water to those journalists. They hair-pinned and propelled toward him. And the feeding frenzy continued through 2005. Another dynamic was in play however, at the turn of the decade, when Sony and Michael began arm-wrestling over Sony/ATV music catalog when Michael announced he would not renew his recording contracts with Sony. It didn’t help matters when Michael found out that his own attorney, John Branca was double-dipping. After that things went down hill.
Rumors of drug use, drug addiction, paranoia, skin bleaching, surgeries, masks (for himself and his children) and spending sprees intensified. Then in 2003, Uri Gellar introduced Michael to Martin Bashir. He said Martin could “revamp” his image. The idea to film a documentary over a six to eight month period with Michael during his daily living would give people a look at the “real” Michael.
Did Martin have a brother who was a private driver for Sony’s Tommy Mottola? Was Bashir approached by Sony for a fee, to sabotage Michael in a documentary? To someone who saw the outtakes from Michael’s own cameras during filming of the same documentary, it certainly looked like it. Bashir was a completely different person on those outtakes, then the person narrating “Living with Michael Jackson”
Months after Michael’s death, the BBC condescends to print this, finally – Gavin denied Michael ever slept in the same bed. Where is the Arvizos family now? And why did they go from this to this in a few short months?
Michael said that he did not believe that Gavin would have done this on his own, that he thought money somehow got in there. During the 60 minutes interview in 2003, Ed Bradley reminded Michael that Janet Arvizo said she did not intend to file a lawsuit. So then why the about-face? How could a child who was dying of cancer and that Michael helped get cured, so viciously turn on him? I wonder if, during the investigation in 2003 - 2005, Tom Mesereau and Interpol turned up any payments to the Arvizos from Sony or Branca? This family has disappeared off the radar, with everything else going on around Michael’s death. They had a chance to jump on this and capitalize big time. Where did they go?
The payoff must have been mighty big.
James 4:11 – Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 12 There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?
Tom Sneddon, the D.A. in Los Angeles during both attempts to indict Michael on something he did not do, went so far in his attempts to destroy Michael that even some of the jurors were crying along with Michael during the reading of the "not guilty" verdicts on each of the 14 counts against him. Here is what one attorney had to say during his radio show, about Tom Sneddon and Michael Jackson:
Tom Sneddon Slammed
What Bashir did was intent to harm. What Sony did was intent to financially destroy. Then today I learn about this:
Investor Group Acquires Sony/ATV Music Publishing from Sony
Colonial Capital???? “US - An investor group comprised of Colony Capital LLC, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co, Plainfield Asset Management LLC, and Mr. Haim Saban, planned to acquire the ##% interest in Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC (Sony/ ATV), a Los Angeles-based publisher ...” It says. Most of these date back to July of last year, right after Michael died. It even mentions John Branca in this and still the judge refused to dismiss him from controlling Jackson’s family estate.
It states in this link that Michael’s music publishing assets were worth $500 million. This figure is way off the real value of the Sony/ATV catalog since adding to it through the years.
There was a lot of movement of funds by Colony Capital on and after June 30th, five days after Michael died. The filings of certain documents have the hackles up of some facebook group members. I was asked about the S-11 filed on June 30th. I know what it is for, but I could not answer why they filed it on June 30th. Could Colony Capital have actually purchased the Sony/ATV catalog? Did they purchase the whole business, Michael’s half, or Sony’s half? I need an accountant on this one, take a look here.
Another discover . . . Jerry (Edmund G. Brown, Attorney General for State of California) Brown on the probate document for Michael Jackson Family Trust last will and testament.
Are the pieces coming together yet? This barrel of monkeys couldn’t be more closely joined at the arms if we took a blow torch to their little plastic limbs and melted them together!
According to Richard Fine’s lawyer (you remember him . . . the guy that’s been sitting in jail in solitary confinement without a charge because he was trying to expose the 400 judges that took bribes in the state of California), Michael will not get a fair trial, or I should say, Michael’s murderer will not face real justice unless that case gets seen outside of the city of L.A. and the L.A. courts. The FBI should be involved in this. How do we get it there?
I have not sent a letter to the FBI. I am working other agencies. Someone I know is working FBI.
People, this is a mess. It is so simple, but the tangled roots of controversy is obscuring the view. Keep looking for the pieces missing out of the puzzle and posting them to the groups.
There is something about the involvement of Colony Capital in the Sony/ATV catalog purchase that is bothering me. We know Tom Barrack’s background. We know he is half owner of Neverland Ranch. We know that he purchased it originally to help save it from foreclosure. This was supposed to help Michael out. Dr. Tohme, Tohme is the one who introduced Michael to Tom Barrack. Dr. Tohme was introduced to Michael, reportedly by his own brother, Jermaine. Jermaine’s wife, allegedly is a cousin of Tohme and Tohme is allegedly the ex-husband of Randy Phillip’s (AEG) sister. (Is this the Beverly Hill-Billies? If this weren’t so horrifying, it sounds like a joke that Jeff Foxworthy would come up with. Designer Deliverance!)
Tohme is the only one of this group that seems to be out of sight. No one knows where he is, what he is doing, what he is up to. Jermaine liked him. He was there at the hospital and made the announcement that he was Michael’s business manager after Michael had months ago fired him. Did Michael fire him? Who stepped in? Frank DiLeo? Was someone placed in Michael’s business for Sony’s benefit? If so, was it Tohme or DiLeo? Something is missing . . . one small little piece and I can smell it, but I can’t find it.
Michael’s little Dr. Murray has his preliminary hearing coming up on June 14th. While we and Michael’s family awaits that date, we keep digging for answers.
There is a World-wide prayer group for the preliminary hearing. Please sign up for this and put it on your calendars: Michael’s Prayer Group for June 14th Hearing Please also remember to pray for Richard Fine, the attorney being held in solitary confinement for absolutely nothing.
Just what is going on in California there, Governor Schwarzenegger? Are you governing or waiting for the SAG to send you an updated union card?
Please visit this site – Sony Boycott At the very least, get this awareness up. Please post and tweet this. Help others to understand that buying Michael Jackson from Sony is financing his murder.
I know there are fans who want to buy Michael . . . before you lay down a dollar for one CD, IPOD song or memorabilia from Juliens, think on this . . .
John 15:13 - Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends
Laying down one’s life for a friend is Godly. It’s unconditional love. Sacrificing an opportunity to buy a piece of Michael is small compared to that. You can do it.
Good night and God Bless you.

May 18, 2010 – Signs of Angels - God, Free Will and Michael Jackson
To set the mood of tonight’s blog, I want to share with you a link my husband sent me. Everyone who has read the poem I wrote “Feathers in the Wind” and knows t he story of the feathers that kept appearing (and that I now have taped to my computer screen) will appreciate this link:
Signs from Angels
For the short version of why feathers are significant to me (besides this article), feathers started floating down from nowhere shortly after I wrote “Feathers on the Wind”. I have two of them taped on my computer monitor’s frame.
The article linked above states that a feather is usually in direct connection to a thought, prayer or question you had in mind. Since the feathers appeared when I was thinking or crying about something to do with Michael, this particular article confirmed that these feathers I have taped to my computer have huge significance.
It says angels bring you feathers and other signs tailor made to your level of faith. Considering what my thoughts were at the time these feathers appeared, I have to tell you I am overjoyed and I have a strengthened belief that God is watching this whole thing, and Michael will see justice. (one floated down from the inside of my car when I was driving. I batted it away until I saw what it was. How can a feather get into a closed space?) Just keep getting the truth out there about Michael. Remember to keep your anger out of the picture. God can’t get in there to use you if you are angry.
Sometimes the signs you get aren’t understood until later. It is that way with me and the feathers. I knew what they were about, I just didn’t know what they were trying to tell me. Forgive me, but I am so in awe right now . . . so many answers coming together. I feel so very blessed and humbled.
It is important to get the truth out about Michael. Just get it out there. I’m just one person. There are many of us out there that have learned so much about him since last June. We really have to concentrate our efforts and focus on the truth. If you sense that someone is out for personal promotion or glorification, you are probably right. Instead of embarking on a campaign to expose that person, leave them be and just concentrate on what we are supposed to be doing to help Michael and his family.
It is so easy to succumb to the emotional warfare that some of Michael’s enemies put out there. As hard as it is, ignore it. Do not give it recognition . . . just focus on getting the truth out about Michael. That is the best way to help him right now.
Sony and Branca . . . get your letters out to the authorities. Just keep putting them out. Write your articles, even if they don’t get published . . . just keep writing them and putting them out there. Keep them factual to what you know and can prove via documentation, interviews, ect.
Michael Jackson has been ripped for his choices in the press, in books, in documentaries. Those that victimized him burrow under the excuse that Michael made bad “choices”. Another abuser’s weapon of defense. The only thing I could probably fault Michael with is his choice in friends and business leaches . . . I mean associates.
Michael has been seen in the press and by T.V. camera’s much more often than those who abused him. The evidence of Michael’s misconduct is just not there. Michael’s usual comment, if any offered at all, when asked about what someone said or did to him? “They know not what they do. Words of Jesus. They (those who come against him) don't even know me. It has no foundation what they are doing. How can they say it....they don't even know me?”
I have been all over this blog about Michael and his faith. I have had responses from people telling me they “saw no evidence” that Michael as a Christian, which made me laugh. Of course not . . . how could they see anything beyond the latest tabloid story about him? What was their incentive for them to even look? There was no benefit in it for them so why bother?
Michael was not the only one with choices to make. His abusers also had an opportunity to make choices. Some want to peg Michael with sins that were not his because they saw what happened to him as a consequence of the choices he made. I charge that Michael paid for other’s choices.
An interviewer back in 1977 asked Michael: “But there's a lot of ugliness in the world, too, a lot of cruelty. Did God create that?”
Michael’s response was, “No! That's because of man! Man is because of the fallen angels. It says in the Bible that all this would happen, and it's all coming true.” Have you been watching the news lately? Is he wrong? That was in 1977. Imagine Michael’s conviction as he was suffering through the battles with Sony and the media, combating injustice. It’s amazing what this man foresaw and wrote about in many lyrics in his songs. He was a prophet and didn’t know it.
Michael didn’t suffer because of God, he suffered because of men. The situation with Sony and the people surrounding him during the last months of his life remind me of the little Tibetan boy in “The Golden Child” . . . In a cage, surrounded by evil on all sides, saying his prayers to keep the evil away at arms length. He was isolated and could not get out to get help. He just prayed, fasted and awaited his deliverance. It finally came on June 25th, 2010. It would appear that those committing his murder are being rewarded with his spoils. But the story is far from over.
Michael’s purpose was to heal people. As his sister Janet once said, he had so much love in him. After suffering abuse as a child, suffering abuse by those he paid to protect him and manage his businesses and career throughout four decades, where did that love come from?
Psalms 10:14 – “But You have seen, for You observe trouble and grief, To repay it by Your hand. The helpless commits himself to You; You are the helper of the fatherless.” Here David is talking about God and his mercy. God works through people on earth. Michael was a willing and selfless volunteer.
Michael tried to be a helper of the helpless. Most of the time, this went uncovered by the press. It wasn’t something Michael believed he should promote. He believed in charity without recognition. There are countless stories of Michael secretly helping a victim of a riot, or a child who was dying because he needed a kidney, or befriending a six year old burn victim, or feeding someone in a crowd who was close enough to Michael’s security for him to hear the man ask for food. Then there were the quiet visits to hospitals in every city in which he performed during his tours. The new bed sheets and blankets, supplies, diapers, food, toys he brought in for the children. There are Pictures of him in orphanages in countries with no money to staff them. Michael in private videos picking up children and holding them, rocking them and singing to them for probably the first time in most of their young lives. He read to them, patted their backs, cradled them, kissed them and cried over them.
This is what the media and the press destroyed. This is what Sony sabotaged. They took this man’s career, his catalog, his money, everything he had built up to help these children. This is what Michael’s purpose was. This is what he said he lived for:
“It’s for the children. I do this for the children. I live for them. If it weren’t for them I would throw in the towel.” Michael Jackson, Living with Michael Jackson Documentary
What do you think Sony and Branca are going to do with the money that is now being earned off the work they have stolen? Are they going to be marching into these hospitals and orphanages across the world? Of course not. They couldn’t even make the choice between Michael and money. They conspired to destroy a human being for the sake of a few billion dollars. AEG was a tool, Bashir was a tool, Malnik was a tool, Wisner and Konitzer were tools, Rattner was a tool, Murray was a tool. Murray was the lethal weapon.
Someone once asked during a debate about faith, why God would give us free will if he knows all . . . if he knew we were going to sin and turn from him, why wouldn’t he just create us to obey?
My response when I thought about it, reminded me of why God created us in the first place.
God wanted beings to love him out of choice. Not like his angels but because we chose to. I believe he knew we would fall, much like we know our own children are going to fall, make mistakes, disobey us and unfortunately have to learn through consequences. Every prominent character in the Bible and their story reflects the same lesson . . . love God, prosper, face a choice. Through each trial we learn what love is, if we are listening. We are such selfishly centered creatures and that mindset colors everything we see, hear and feel. This is why we need God.
He created us because he loved us. The only way true, unconditional love can exist is if there is free will to chose. If you CREATE someone who loves you out of demand or obligation, it is not spontaneous and it is not unconditional . . . and therefore is not true love.
I believe Michael knew this difference. Michael did have unconditional love for people. He expected other people to understand it. He was looking for genuine, unconditional love from others. He had known only “conditional” love all his life. When adoration from people who ended up working for him turned into an attitude of entitlement, Michael got discouraged and grew distant. When those people sensed Michael’s distance, what did they do? How did they respond? Most latched onto what they thought they were entitled to. They felt hurt, grew resentful, and the result when they ended up being let go, you have seen in countless trash magazines over the years.
Michael and lawmakers working on Safe Blood for Africa. This is just one example of the many endeavors Michael took part in that next to no one ever heard about. Michael’s work and charity reached far beyond the stage, across political, religious and ethnic barriers. He didn’t ask if a person deserved to be helped. He saw a need in a human being and he acted, no questions asked. That is the kind of person I would like to be.
Genesis 42:21 – “Then they said to one another, “We are truly guilty concerning our brother, for we saw the anguish of his soul when he pleaded with us, and we would not hear; therefore this distress has come upon us.”
“Sony Kills Music” . . . no they didn’t. Their prey wasn’t music . . . their prey was hope. Their prey was love. Their prey was justice. Michael was the carrier, but the Sony cannot reach the source. Faith without works is dead. Works without faith is fleeting.
Stay united on this. Do not let the fringe stories upset or distract you. Stay united, focused, and pray. We saw the anguish of his soul . . . don't let it go unanswered.
