Michael Jackson Justice: July 2010

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".

Sad Day.... Why Didn't he Talk to us?

Our Friend, Roger During a Local Demonstration against Taxing

Dear Readers,

I will not be posting a blog for a couple of days. A very good family friend took his life last night. We have no idea why.

This gentleman was a long time watchdog of the local politics where I live. He and my husband both attended various events, town halls, Campaign for Liberty meetings, and they both loved going to the range to practice shooting targets. They both organized events together, including youth activities and gun safety.

Roger was one of those people you could hear before you could see him. When he spoke at events, he needed no Microphone or megaphone . . . we always teased him about that. He had a voice that began in his diaphragm and ended in yours. But he had a warm heart, he was giving and we don't know why this happened or why he didn't talk to anyone.

Roger was running for local office here but pulled out without any explanation. He had recently told us that he was getting too involved in the political stuff. That was his last email to my husband. Roger was married and had children.

This is the second friend of my husband who has taken his life in this manner, in their own homes with a gun. I don't understand it. Why is it that friends don't reach out when they are hurting? Why do people feel like they have to handle things alone?

My husband is going to need me for a couple of days. I will pop on here to post and answer comments every so often, but for the next couple of days, we need a break and he needs me.

Love to you all and God Bless you.

The Calm Before the Storm

He Saw this Coming...

July 30, 2010 – The Calm Before the Storm

Ezekiel 33:31 - "So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain."

July 30, 2010. Thirteen months comes and goes. I didn’t cry yesterday. I did cry today and it was after reading an article (blog entry) by someone over a very good description of the psychological dynamics in the relationship between Michael Jackson and Evan Chandler . . . IF Ray Chandler’s book is to be believed. Funny how all these books exposing all these characters surrounding Michael and not one of them results in a grand jury investigation. Not one.

Things had quieted down from the anniversary of Michael Jackson’s leaving us, with a few crackles of static stealthily sparking in the vacuum left over from the wake of all the activity. A relevant analogy would be the stirrings underneath the crust of the earth before the eruption of what most thought to be an extinct volcano. Now the volcano is starting to rumble. Quiet time over.

I would lay you odds that there are some reading this blog that half expected Michael to pop up somewhere to let his fans know that he was okay, and that they didn’t win. Almost like waiting for him to make a move when he was “toastered” onto the stage during his HIStory Tour and just stood there, soaking in the electric anticipation emanating from the audience. Even those that sought to take him down seem to be waiting for something.

Right now, in between them and Michael, are the fans. Some are fighting on who’s right or wrong about different individuals in Michael’s life, but fans nonetheless. Michael was taken down by greed. The fans will go the same way if they are not careful.

People who don't care that these merchants of lies are out there hawking books full of false stories on Michael yet will believe that someone that writes a FREE BLOG has an agenda. These merchant “friends” couldn’t give two rats’ rear ends about Michael. If they did, they wouldn’t be taking part in documentaries like this one!

Is there anyone watching as those who in the beginning, stepped out to profess friendship with Michael only to begin to fall back into their predictable behavior? Is anyone taking note?

Michael’s destruction has already spawned documentaries, books, merchandise, T-shirts, radio shows and new Michael Jackson experts across the web. Separating the genuine advocates from the opportunists will only be a matter of time.

There are going to be attacks by those with something to hide. Those of us putting our necks out there really need to keep our noses clean because the integrity of what we are trying to do for Michael (getting the truth out there) will fall victim to our own actions if we don't.

There are times when this becomes harder for me than it should be, because I am now personally involved. Someone once accused me of being “emotionally vulnerable”, and he is right. I am. I am not the only one. There is so much of Michael’s life that ran parallel to many in the areas of loneliness, violated trust, isolation and fear of certain things that I once prayed that God would give me that man’s pain. Now that I know more about it, I would still take it if I was asked. What it has taught me is that someone always has it worse than you and not to complain.

Still I can’t help wonder what runs through the minds of people who can justify willfully going about to emotionally pillage another human being. Especially one that has done nothing but give.

What a luxury to be able to operate on the level of some of the more vicious journalists out there. What empowerment to be able to convince oneself that you are the only one who actually feels pain, humiliation or mortification. How completely enlightening to be able to look into the eyes of someone you just kicked in the gut while you are publicly labeling them a professional victim . . . a milker of sympathy. Is it a learned skill or just one of those prodigal gifts that can’t be explained?

Our society has taught us that people like this are to be admired. That they are strong. It is okay t o create victims as long as you are not one. You can BECOME victim by making a declaration of such and use that title in battle. But some want it both ways.

As a child, I wondered what it would be like to say things and not have to worry what people thought of me after it came out of my mouth. When I was a child I just couldn’t defend myself against bullies. I could never say anything back. It wasn’t because I was afraid of them. It was because I never wanted to be responsible for making anyone feel the way they made me feel.

Regardless of what they do, say or publish about me online I do not care. My blog is getting written and there isn’t much they can do about it. I'm doing this for MICHAEL not for a book deal. They can discredit me all they want, it won’t change the fact that Michael died, they contributed to it, and that they are ones who are profiting from the book sales.

This is not a Game

I am battling for justice for Michael. They are battling for royalties. I am a mom. I work checking on the elderly in their homes. I don’t jet around the world giving interviews on a book in which I smeared one of my friends and one of the dearest men on the planet. I don’t rub elbows with the likes of Diane Dimond and John Branca. I don’t write blogs under anonymous names. I have nothing to hide. So let them come. It’s a typical response I would expect from any juvenile trying to cover up a wrong.

Read your History - Story of James Forrestal

I ran across the case of James Forrestal. Ever hear of him? Official has different story about him, but what really happened sounded eerily familiar to what is going on today.

James Forrestal was appointed to be Defense Secretary by Harry S. Truman in 1948. He was formerly a CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) member but had resigned. He was responsible for preventing a communist takeover in Italy in 1948 as well.

Truman regretted his decision to appoint Forrestal when he learned that Forrestal was no longer in step with “The Establishment” and was actually preparing to battle treason within our own government. Truman fired him in March of 1949, but that didn’t deter Forrestal. He was planning to buy the New York Sun (Guess who has these papers now?) and turn it into an anti-Communist government watchdog. So what happened to him?

Five days after Truman fired him, he was taken to Bethesda Naval hospital and was heavily drugged and held for seven weeks where no one but approved, immediate family could see him. Everyone else was denied access. (Are we getting warm yet?) Forrestal’s writings were confiscated by the White House. After seven weeks his priest was finally able to get Naval Secretary John Sullivan to authorize his release.

Forrestal was scheduled for release on May 22, 1949 but he fell from a window near his sixteenth floor room. His bathrobe cord was found tied and knotted around his neck. His death was ruled a suicide.

If you are so interested you can read about this in Cornell Simpson’s “The Death of James Forrestal”.

Michael Battles through Music and Vision

Aside from the fringe battles that threaten to trip us up on our path to justice, I was hit with two pieces of good news. One involves justice. The other involves a little purchase made by Colony Capital, who now owns controlling interest in Miramax pictures. But why would this be good news? Colony Capital takes control of Miramax from Disney for $660m

Let’s just say that a dream that I had is unfolding and that if I wasn’t a voracious reader, I would probably have never seen this coming. And I am so glad that God knows what he is doing. I should have been more faithful. I should have realized that he has justice’s back.

Keep your eyes open and your ears and remember the value of discernment. Because it is going to become much more important in the weeks coming.

Keep an eye on Dr. Conrad Murray. This is not going to turn out like we expect it. Remember though as things play out . . . there is a purpose everything that happens the way that it does. This? Just a piece of news. Not really important in what is going to happen. This does not mean that justice was not done. I take this to mean exactly what we thought all along . . . There was not enough evidence because Michael was not a drug addict. Doctors won’t be Charged in Singers Death -

Remember to pray for the family of John Branca during the loss of his father. Please. John Branca’s father dies.

There will be things coming up in the news, especially around and surrounding the trial date for Dr. Conrad Murray . . . Many things to divert your attention. This believe it or not, is just the calm before the storm. Borrow Michael’s umbrella if you need.

Be Still and Quiet...Wait for an Answer

Revelations 19: 19 & 20 - "And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone."

Branca, Mottola, Green, Malnik and Ratner

July 27, 2020 – Branca, Mottola, Green, Malnik and Ratner

On June 26, we left off with this blog entry, outlining the lawsuits surrounding Michael and the Ayscough and Marar Law firm. Reference

Some really funny things have happened since then. Yesterday, I was away on personal business most of the day. Ironic that things really seem to “pop” on those days and several things came to my attention. But for now we will stay focused on this topic.

There are many blogs out there writing different things about Michael Jackson or the issues surrounding him and his murder. Some blogs popping up rather recently have taken a defense behind the lines of John Branca and Al Malnik of all people with some very convincing resources like the New York Times.

In investigating these links one thing seemed common on the couple of resources that listed John Branca has having been Michael’s attorney between 2003 and 2006. One was a piece written in the New York Times, another a defunct link to the L.A. Times was used as a source, and as another a Roger Friedman, gossip columnist was “relied upon” as a trusted source. In each of the two newspapers I checked out, the NYT link said Branca could not be reached in an Nov. 2003 article, only months after Branca was fired. This was probably because Branca could not speak for Michael, because Branca was not his lawyer at this time. Any blog lauding the “saving” of Michael Jackson by Al Malnik is suspect to MOST sensible Michael Jackson fans. No one from Michael's camp at the time is or can be quoted as Branca still being his manager. Misinformation passed on to other journalists (as usual)appears a a few columns.

This same blog also lists a falsified copy of court testimony in which supposedly attorney LeGrand is questioned by Tom Mesereau about the investigations done into the people surrounding Michael at the 2005 trial, and LeGrand exhonerates Branca while implicating Wiezner and Konitzer. The real court document found at this source says something quite different. Source

Branca and Mottola are mentioned in this one which falls along the lines of what Michael had mentioned in quite a few public statements available on Youtube and also from Michael’s own family members. I would think that Michael and his own brothers would know best who was after Michael to destroy him than some anonymous, Sony-slanted blogger. The court testimony will tell you that Branca most certainly was NOT employed by Michael Jackson during 2004 and 2005.

I thought the campaign trying to discredit both news sources and bloggers and fans alike very interesting and the propaganda seems to be increasing. This could be why: Sony is losing billions. Could it be the death of Michael Jackson wasn’t the winfall they had planned? Source

Other documents I have noticed are either from one gossip columnist (a hired hand?), PDF documents converted from convincingly recreated word documents citing links that no longer can be accessed or don’t exist, and sources linked to John Branca documents.

And for one particular blog to extol the virtues of a mob connected conspirer of Michael’s, all one has to do is read about Al Malnik himself to confirm what kind of person he is. Here is a good background on Malnik and his ilk. Source Take a look at Michael’s face during his stay with Malnik. Some very interesting expressions on Michael’s face, don’t you think? Yes, he looked real happy . . . for a rape victim.

Michael with Al Malnik Gang

Michael in Misery

Another Smiling Face

On this same blog one of these photos appeared:

"Michael's Team???"

Pretty “inside” photo wouldn’t you say? The caption under this picture is “Michael’s Team”. I recognize John Branca sitting obscured on the left side facing and Mark Garagos standing, talking on the phone. There are a whole bunch of people in this room. There is one thing missing in “Michael’s Team” . . . Michael himself. This looks more like a meeting of those conspiring to force Michael into involuntary bankruptcy.

The reason Raymone Bain never mentioned John Branca in any of her press releases is because John Branca was not employed by Michael at that time. There is no press release by Michael of ever hiring John Branca back . . . none. Only one errant NYT article mistakenly trying to contact John Branca for info on Michael during the trial. Another news source calls John Michael’s “previous” lawyer. Source

A good article on John Branca is here ,

A site listing Michael’s lawyers (top ten, notice Peter Lopez, one of the last hired, is on this list). Source where it says further down:

“There is also a $25 million lien against it held by Fortress Investments, created so Jackson could buy out his former attorney, John Branca, from a five percent interest in Sony/ATV Music Publishing.”

This same blog said:

“I want to discuss the refinancing of Michael's loans in 2005, which helps us to understand and transition into 2006. "Jackson, who was then awaiting trial on criminal child molestation charges, authorized his advisors to negotiate a solution that would have erased his debts and provided him with income of about $10 million a year...As part of the agreement, Sony Corp.” . . .

Then said three more paragraphs down:

“Reports state that Branca was making in the vicinity of $20 million from the proceeds of his 5% (some state 2.5%) of the ATV”

Maybe Michael balked at the deal because John was not his attorney, and because Branca’s stated $20 million a year proceeds from only 5% share of that same catalog would obviously pale in comparison to the income Michael made on his 50% share. Does it make sense then for this blogger to try to tell us what a great deal Michael would have had on a paltry ten million a year from selling Sony half his share? I think not. I would link to the blog pontificating on these fallacies but I really do not want to bring any more attention to it. This shows Michael knew what they were trying to do to him, he knew how to make a business decision and he was not fooled by the offer.

This link below shows a search on Michael Jackson firing John Branca in 2003. Absolutely no proof that he was ever hired back. Source

Timeline shows absolutely NO proof Branca was ever hired back. Search through years 2004, 2005 and 2006. Only in 2009, in June, does it show any mention of Michael “meeting” with Branca and this is a decidedly generic source, reporting on what was in the news and on press releases.

This link goes to a Friedman article in Fox News describing the debacle over returning Michael’s passport after the trial so he could leave the country. No mention of Branca, who should have been helping him in all this turmoil, IF he was working for him or cared about him.

Transcripts of Interview with Katherine Jackson on the Today Show with Rita Cosby (the nice lady who tried to misquote Michael after interviewing him briefly after the Al Sharpton Press Conference where Michael blasted Mottola). No mention of Branca and you know, for someone who was supposedly working for Michael from the latter part of 2003 through mid 2006 (leaving of his own accord), just where was he during five months of the biggest and most excruciating trial of Michael’s life? Where were you John? Bet you and Mottola had a hard time picking each other’s jaws up off the bar when those verdicts came down mid-toast.

This Friedman article also makes no mention of Branca while Michael is trying to get his passport back from sexual harasser to the pop stars, Tom Sneddon.

Just take a look at everything in this link. There are many Roger Friedman articles in here over the course of the trial and not one of them mentions John Branca being Michael’s lawyer. Not one.
Source Trial quotes: Quotes from trial. Bain is quoted quite a few times in articles but no mention of John Branca. Bain herself does not even mention John Branca.

Larry King Live Transcripts of Interview with Tom Mesereau. This was interesting for two reasons . . . One Raymone was working with Tom on Michael’s case according to Tom M. and two because he revealed that Sneddon and “wined and dined” Debbie Rowe to “get her to say what they wanted her to say” but Debbie Rowe defended Michael on the stand.

An interesting discussion was sent to me in regard to the conspiracy on this source:

Discussion of John Branca, Trudy Green, Howard Kaufman, Charles Koppelman, Al Manik, Tommy Mottola, and Brett Ratner.

In another Roger Friedman article on Fox News, he comments on the firing of Raymone Bain and Randy Jackson being relieved of financial duties. He also speculates on who would next represent Michael, sarcastically suggesting as one of the possibilities “Bubbles the Chimp”. Source That doesn’t sound like someone who thinks Branca still represents Michael.

This information is for you to decide. Just know that there are people out there PAID to put this misinformation out there. They don’t even have to be convincing. They just have to divide and conquer. The truth is there. Discern documents carefully. Anyone can make a PDF file.

Also consider that those trying to discredit these blogs, namely myself and are the ones trying to sell books, not us. I have no monetary connection to Michael and I am not and do not plan or writing a book. My blog is free.

This just goes to show you just how important it is for Sony to save their reputation and win the P.R. war after contributing to Michael’s misery and death. There are billions at stake. Branca and co. have much to hide. So does Judge Melville.

Remember . . . Michael’s own family wanted the executors challenged. They have been legally bullied by the very money those executors control. Judge Melville appointed an attorney who represented Branca against Katherine (Howard Weitzman) and who is being investigated for raping the Cobain estate, as a co-executor for the children against Katherine.

These are the people we were dealing with. Don’t let yourself be moved. They are still just people. They lie and they have a BIG motive to lie.

Keep looking through and you will find the truth.

Was this Michael Jackson's 2006 Raymone Bain Conspiracy?

July 26, 2010 - Was this Michael Jackson's 2006 Raymone Bain Conspiracy?

Previously on this series of blog entries investigating the whereabouts of the Raymone Bain reported conspiracy, I had left off with an August 29th lawsuit filed by previous lawyers of Michael Jackson here. Source

Michael pictured with Raymone Bain

No lawsuit filed against Branca, Mottola, Malnik, Ratner or Green could be found. No complaints naming such other than the Carol Davis entry posted on another blog. However I did find this:

Lawsuit Complaint filed against Michael’s Accountants, Bernstein, Fox, Whitman, Goldman and Sloan. This lawsuit filed in December of 2006 by Michael through Venable, LLP, for negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and failure to provide accounting.

This reports that Michael dropped the lawsuit (possible settlement) but the link no longer works so I copied here from where it was posted on a message board:

“Troubled pop star Michael Jackson has now dropped his lawsuit against account firm Bernstein, Fox, Whitman, Goldman & Sloan which he claimed made unauthorized deals. It is not known if Jackson who alleged negligence and breach of trust agreed to a settlement deal. The King of Pop sued the company in December 2006; he said that they were late in paying his taxes as well as entering into contracts without the singer’s permission.

The account firm tried to counter sue Jackson, however this action was dismissed. Bernstein, Fox, Whitman, Goldman & Sloan claimed that Michael Jackson owed them $1 million in unpaid bills. Michael has managed to stay out of the headlines since he was acquitted of the child sex abuse charges in 2005.”

Source - BBC News

Take a look at the list of lawyers owed money, according to Ayscough and he mentions other law suits filed by lawyers against Michael. Some of the names are very interesting. There are a number of lawsuits filed by attorneys against Michael at this time. It is unclear to me that this is the conspiracy that Raymone Bain put out the press release about, as it does not address Michael’s catalog nor his battle with Sony. The complaint also does not mention or petition for involuntary bankruptcy.

Ayscough represented MJ against Marc Schaffel. Schaffel was suing Michael at the same time Michael was facing trial.

In this complaint filed by Brian Ayscough on July 25, 2006, he listed quite a few creditors, in which most are lawyers. How did Mr. Ayscough get this information from the other creditors and why did they feel compelled to share this information? They were, according to the complaint, asked to stay on by Susan Yu and Tom Mesereau, who were also accused of non payment and bad faith.

Here is a list of the cases Ayscough said they either assisted in or provided exclusive services for:

People vs Jackson S.B. Superior Court case#1133603 – duties to obtain orders to seal civil cases from press during court proceedings, sealing records and staying discovery while proceedings in process.

Court of appeals case #B182655 – challenge by news media on sealing records.

Schaffel vs Jackson et. al. S.C. case # SC083501 – Defending Jackson et. al.

Kamand vs. Jackson S.C. case # BC324733 – Defending Jackson

Avram vs Jackson, JAMS case of 50 133 T 00565 04

Alfredo Bowman and Dr. Sebi, LLC vs. Jackson S.C. case # BC 322867

Hamid Moslehi vs. MJJ Productions D.C. case # CV 04-10264 RSW – IFILM Inc.

Kyman vs. Jackson L.A. S.C. #LC071670 -

Here is a list of the previous lawyers and business representatives listed on the complaint:

Zia Modabber, $400,000
Brian Oxman, $1,250,000
Michael Sydown, over $1,000,000
Michael Abelson – in reference to being asked by him to approve services performed by Oxman. This should have been Abelson’s responsibility to pay A&M for that.

Bob Sanger, $1,200,000
Michael Abelson again, $100,000
Precient Acquisition Group, $48,000,000 NY Dist. Court case #05CV 6298 Judge Castle

Watchel and Masyr, filed motion to be relived in Precient case for non payment of services

Lavely and Singer, $100,000
David LeGrand, Owned money (no amount mentioned)

Other Creditors listed in complaint:

Fortress, $325,000,000 –

Randy Jackson, $1, 650,000

RJ’s assistant Tyuna Zilkie, $50,000

Debbie Rowe sued Michael for L.A. SC case #BD 310276 for $900,000 a year for five years plus legal fees.

Staff of Neverland and state of California for back pay, which was paid but still mentioned in complaint.

CPA Allan I. Whitman of Fox, Bernstein, Whitman, Goldman and Sloan owed for business management services. (mentioned above, Michael dropped case against them).

Now this firm claims that Mesereau and Yu were paid by Michael in September 23 of 2006 but had told Ayscough that they had not been paid yet and asked Ayscough to stay on saying they would be paid later, but were never paid. What sense does this make?

Why isn’t their complaint then against Mesereau and Yu? Why were they holding Michael accountable for the payments of ASSISTANTS of creditors?

And why and how would Randy Jackson be involved with this complaint? Did Randy just volunteer this information to someone who was trying to put the screws to his brother?

How would this law firm get the creditors and amounts of all these different lawyers and business managers if they had not been on a campaign?

Michael’s counter complaint

My friend has not been able to find actual documents for this, but she did send me this article:

Jackson sues former attorneys

This paragraph says:

“Michael Jackson is suing Los Angeles law firm Ayscough & Marar, accusing attorneys of trying to force him into bankruptcy. In papers filed on August 29 but unseen until now, Jackson accuses his former attorneys of conspiring with other lawyers, who represented him in the past, to put him into involuntary bankruptcy.”

This link shows document of proceeding and mentions Michael’s countersuit, filed August 29, 2006 (day after his 48th birthday) and the trial set for June 26, 2007. There is a discussion by legal professionals on the motions presented during this hearing. Anyone with more legal expertise than I can maybe comment on this.

This is written closer to lay terms. Both of these were hearings in reference to Michael not showing up for depositions. According to this link, Michael walked out on one deposition and failed to show on the date set to finish it.

As a result, Michael was ordered to pay the $216,000 to Ayscough and Marar plus interest.

However, this is not the same list of lawyers and business associates that Carol Davis mentioned in a now defunct a list of the people mentioned in the conspiracy. Those people were:

- John Branca
- Trudy Green
- Howard Kaufman
- Charles Koppelman
- Al Manik
- Tommy Mottola
- Brett Ratner

The only reference I could find to it was here at Kingofpop

“To all the fans around the world, for your information – please know that Michael Jackson’s publishing ATV and MIJAC catalogue is not for sale. However, there is a conspiracy to try and take these publishing companies from him. Suspected are the following: Al Malnick, Tommy Mottola, John Branca, Charles Koppleman, Brett Ratner, Howard Kofeman, Trudy Green. (search U.S. Justice Department)

Pass this information to the fans around the world that love and care for Michael.
Sincerely, a watchful eye.”

Source: Carol Davis / Justice System

There is plenty of information here, but for some reason, I believe this is not what we are looking for. This is a can of worms that seems to open up into the hundreds of lawsuits filed for quick paydays from Michael Jackson.

Tomorrow, I want to do more work on the list Carol Davis gave us.

Conspiracy Proof - The Case that Never Was

Michael with Uri Gellar and Rabbi Boteach

July 25, 2010 – Conspiracy Proof! The Case that Never Was

Yesterday I had written about The Conspiracy which you can refer to here.

There was a gag order, according to Michael in that interview with Jesse Jackson, over the investigations going in with regard to the conspiracy he mentioned. I did not know why there would be a gag order on a court proceeding that the prosecution ordered open to the public. So I surmised that the gag order had to do with the investigations into the conspiracy and those Michael believed were involved.

During the 2005 trial, Tom Mesereau had ordered Interfer to investigate and uncovered suspicious payments to John Branca from Tommy Mottola, but nothing every was reported after that. Just that there were “improprieties”.

In 2006 after the trial and while Michael was over in Bahrain, Someone in Michael’s camp sent Michael and his associates paperwork proving several past employees conspired to petition others to drive him into involuntary bankruptcy. Several news articles which came out during August of 2006 confirmed that:

Jackson Discovers Conspiracy Against Him

Another article on the same subject on August 8, 2006

One of these reads:

“OS ANGELES (Reuters) - Pop star Michael Jackson has stumbled across a conspiracy by former attorneys, associates and advisers to force him into financial ruin, his spokeswoman said on Monday.

“The plot was discovered after someone leaked documents to Jackson showing that unnamed former lawyers for the 47-year-old singer tried to recruit others into a petition that would drag him unwillingly into bankruptcy court, his spokeswoman and manager Raymone Bain said.

"In what could be one of the biggest conspiracies in entertainment history, documents have been sent to Michael Jackson and his representatives which reveal a deliberate plan by some former attorneys as well as associates and advisers to force Mr. Jackson into involuntary bankruptcy," Bain said.

An Unhappy Michael Jackson with Al Malnik and Brett Rattner

“During his four-month trial on child molestation charges last year, prosecutors asserted that the self-styled "King of Pop" was in perilous financial shape due to mounting debt.

“Bain declined to name the conspirators, saying that Jackson had ordered his current legal team to investigate the scheme and file lawsuits in multiple jurisdictions.

"In addition, there is a strong possibility that these documents will be forwarded to the U.S. Attorney General for review and possible involvement," Bain said.

“Bain also declined to say who provided the documents to Jackson, who she said was busy shopping for a home in Europe and recording material for his first studio album of new material since 2001.

“Jackson, who has made few public appearances since his acquittal on child molestation charges in 2005, announced in June that he had severed ties with his longtime business managers as part of a "sweeping restructuring" of his affairs.

“In March, state authorities ordered Jackson to close his Neverland Valley Ranch in the California foothills for failing to pay the staff or maintain proper insurance. In April, Jackson reached a deal to finance more than $200 million in loans secured by his stake in the Beatles song catalog.

Michael with Al Malnik again. Look Says it all.

“Bain said it was not yet clear why Jackson's former attorneys and associates would want to force bankruptcy on the onetime child star, who ruled the pop charts during the 1980s with such albums as "Off the Wall" and "Thriller."

"That's what we'd like to find out," Bain said. "But Michael Jackson was neither shocked nor surprised. He's always been suspicious that some of those whom he entrusted to act on his behalf ... may not have acted in his best interests."

And here

This is involuntary bankruptcy for those of you who would like to understand how this works – Involuntary bankruptcy

What happened to the Conspiracy case?

In digging I keep coming up with posts on different forums and message boards. This one really made the hair on the back of my neck stand up:

“Well its clear to me that the plan was to make Michael as poor as possible starting from 1999, this means stealing, falsely investing, getting huge loans out with massive % on them, getting lawsuits filed against him so he would be forced into Bankruptsy once the petition was filed and then the judge would take away his assets, one of those being one of the most important music catalogues in history. So are sony involved in this? Hell yeah, is Mottola involved in this? Hell yeah! Should Michael wear a bullet proof vest now? ABSOLUTELY!” Michael needed a propofol-proof doctor.

Frank DiLeo was also of the impression in interviews back in the eighties that he believed there were people that thought he and Michael were too powerful and wanted to split them up. Michael did actually fire DiLeo in 1989, but DiLeo was the one also blamed for starting and planting some of the “Michael Rumors” to the tabloid press. This continued then intensified right before and through the 1993 blackmail of Michael. There were even rumors that Frank was fired by Sony, not Michael himself and replaced with Sandy Gallin, who was hired by Mottolla.

There is some interesting discussion here. Although old, some of this discussion highlights some of the details missed by the media both then and now.

As I read through EVERY POST (ugh), it seems this announcement about the conspiracy has turned from Raymone Bain possibly getting the U.S. Justice Department involved to Michael counter-suing a couple of ex-advisors (Wisner/Konitzer, Schaffel). Were papers ever filed with the U.S. Justice Department?

Papers were filed on Aug. 29, 2006 in Tarzana, Calif. According to several blogs, Michael accused former attorneys Ayscough & Marar of petitioning Michael’s other previous lawyers to get them to join with them in forcing Jackson into involuntary bankruptcy. It was found on another blog discussion that Michael also claims in the papers that Brent Ayscough threatened to expose confidential information about Jackson to the press, violating rules of professional conduct.

However, another press release by a CNN reporter (tried to find this, this was also mentioned on a message boafd) the list of conspirators that were actually under suspicion were as follows:

- John Branca
- Trudy Green
- Howard Kaufman
- Charles Koppelman
- Al Manik
- Tommy Mottola
- Brett Ratner

Not Many Smiles with Al Malnik

None of these are Ayscough or Marar. A Sony-slanted blog stated:

“Jackson does not want to pay Ayscough the $216,000 in back fees for which the attorney sued him just one month earlier. He’s also embarrassed that in his filing, Ayscough "unmasks" Jackson’s horrific financial situation even more by telling the press just how much money Jackson owes everyone around him. Ayscough, Jackson says in the cross complaint to the July suit, listed as many of Jackson’s debts as possible.”

The web site I found that information from is Jacksonaction. On this page you will find links to the right for Facebook and Myspace . . . both Michael Jackson related. Their Facebook page info lists Recording label is Epic/Legacy Recordings, and as one of their websites. Sony influenced Website? Yes. Sony influenced Blog? Yes. Fair and impartial reporting? Not on your life. So is Sony using paid bloggers?

Yes. It’s a P.R. Rescue attempt!

Misinformation is being put out there regarding the Conspiracy investigation, substituting other litigation Michael had to cover what was really going on. Searching documents on the possible filing of documents by Bain or Lopez to the U.S. Justice Department in reference to the Conspiracy by the above listed people and I was met only with the releasing of Michael Jackson’s FBI File. It said “A total of 111 pages were withheld to prevent duplication of material already released or to protect personal privacy, the identity of sources that provided information to the FBI in confidence, and internal rules and practices. Some information was referred to the U.S. Secret Service.”

The Secret Service? Why?

The files between March 1, 2004 and June 29, 2005 are here.

With the Justice Department involved in the 2005 trial investigations for the prosecution, is it safe to say that any documents Raymone Bain and/or Peter Lopez possibly turned over to them could have gotten shelved?

There is one of three possibilities. The U.S. Justice Department either told Michael and his people that there was not enough evidence to warrant an investigation; they investigated and found nothing, or they are still working on the case.

The revelation about the conspiracy first hit the press (rather lightly I may add) in August of 2006.

Tomorrow we will go over the list of the conspirators above, their connections to each other and Sony and the ATV catalog.

Pealing Back the Layers of Conspiracy

July 25, 2010 – Pealing Back the Layers of Conspiracy

When someone hears the word “conspiracy” it brings to mind JFK, Area 51, Watergate, One World Order, and the death of Michael Jackson. However, people’s reaction to the word is less than cordial. I was once told that a conspiracy is the attempt by a group of people to assert to another group of people that there is no conspiracy.

Where Michael is concerned, some key words in regard to the subject of conspiracy:

Michael Jackson
Sony/ATV Catalog
Music Publishing
MiJack Catalog
Invincible Album
2005 Trial
Involuntary Bankruptcy

The next several blogs will concentrate on Sony and the role they played in Michael’s misery. I want to search out their role in the 2005 trial, the group of lawyers and business managers that were investigated for conspiracy, the fight over the invincible album, the media rumors and the part Frank DiLeo played in them, the 1993 child misconduct allegations and the purchase of the original ATV catalog by Michael Jackson over Martin Bandier. I want to trace everything backward through the time line.

We will start with an excerpt of the interview Michael gave to Jesse Jackson’s radio show on March 27, 2005, which happened during the trial itself. We will start here with Michael’s revelation about the Conspiracy.

Jesse Jackson Interview, March 27, 2005 Radio Show

Jesse: And so, you-you-you-you had these hits, ahem, and people that you have embraced are now facing you in court on a daily basis. How does your spirit handle that?

Michael: Ah, I gained strength from God. I believe in Jehovah God very much and ah, and I gain strength from the fact that I know I’m innocent ~~ none of these stories are true ~~ they are totally fabricated, and it’s very sad, it’s very, very painful. And I pray a lot and er, that’s how I deal with it and I’m a strong person, I’m a warrior. And I know what’s inside of me. I’m a fighter. But it’s very painful. At the end of the day, I’m human, you know, I’m still a human being. So it does hurt very, very, very much.

Michael's Arrest in 2003

Jesse: You and I were watching, you know you and I were talking last week on the phone and – and there was this rhythm of the trial, which we will not get into at all today, but then they shifted from the focus of the trial to say you are broke. And last week, people are calling in, all around the nation saying, “Is Michael broke”? Michael, are you broke???

Michael: That’s not true at all. It’s one of their many schemes to embarrass me and to just drag me through mud. And it’s the same pattern, like I told you before with these other people in the past. Same pattern. Don’t believe, you know, this is tabloid, sensationalized kind of gossip.

Jesse: Well, how did the money issue get in it in the first place? Some people called and they thought it was about the Sony catalog. What’s- what’s in that catalog?

Michael: In my Sony Catalog, is all the Beatles music, ahem, all of the music I own – I own Sly and the Family Stone, I-I own such a volume of so many, I own Elvis – so many Elvis songs and it’s a huge catalog, very valuable, it’s worth a lot of money. And there is a big fight going on right now, as we speak about that. Now, I can’t say whether or not – I can’t comment on it, but there’s a lot of conspiracy, I’ll say that – conspiracy going on as we speak.

Jesse: It was suggested by a number of your friends and family members was that this fight was really more about this catalog issue than it is any thing else. Do you believe that?

Michael: Well, you know, I don’t want to comment. I don’t want to make a comment, Jessie ah—it’s a real delicate issue and uh, I’ll let you, I’ll let you make the comment on that one.

Jesse: Let me shift this to this extent. Ahem, since so many people are listening and there have been so many opinions – I was in London a couple of weeks ago, and 24/7 was Michael Jackson all-day-long and all-night-long and the day that you came to the hospital late [to court], you said you were injured. What happened that day?

Michael: I was coming, er, out of the shower and I-I-I fell. And all my body weight, and I’m pretty fragile, all my body weight fell against my rib cage. And I pretty much, er, er, I bruised my lung very badly. My lung is on the right, it’s very [sp], it’s, I’m in pain as we speak and ah, I’ve been going to court everyday in immense pain and agonizing pain. And I sit there – and I’m strong, I try to be as strong as I can. So I can, ahh, but what we are looking for is the coughing of blood now. The doctor said I should – he said it’s still very dangerous as we speak, and if I cough the blood, he said it’s a very dangerous thing, so we’re, we’re still watching it very closely.

Jesse: The cynics said you were faking. And it seems that the judge is [sic] will not even willing to believe you, even though you had just left the hospital.

Michael: You know the – there’s no faking with this at all. I mean there was a scan done and you could see, uhhh, the swelling on my whole rib cage, I mean, uh, it was you could see it and it’s bright red. And how it, it [the fall] busted my chin, and it put a huge gash over my forehead, blood, it was er, it was very bad actually. And er, but errr, we’ve treating it actually, I do have some medicine for it, but we are watching it very closely.

Jesse: As I listen to your talking about this whole ordeal that you are going through, and how you’ve er, stood strong sometimes amazingly so, ah, at some point last week, you – you cried. What-what touched you? What made you, breakdown, as it were?

Michael: You mean at court?

Jesse: Yeah.
Michael: I was in pain. I was sitting there hurting. And er, the pain was so immense, all I could do was to sit there and cry. See, because it er, it was so intense at that moment, ah, ahem, I just couldn’t handle it. So I just grab tissues and just put it to my face… and…

Jesse: So, it was more about your personal pain, than the, than the challenges of the, from the stand?

Michael: No, it had nothing to do with what was going on inside. It was totally with personal pain, physical pain.

Michael's Injuries from Arrest in 2003

Jesse: Michael, since so many people are listening, I’m trying to gleam from some of our calls on the phone today and from last week, as people listen to you, what do you want people to know? Those listening to you on the phone – I see calls from Philadelphia, and from Holland and from Britian and New York and Mississippi and Florida, California – what do you want people to know?

Michael: About?

Jesse: About you. About where you are now in the head, how you are feeling?

Michael: Well, ahem, pretty much to-to be strong for me, to pray for my children and my family and myself. This is uh…uh very difficult time and to not believe what they hear, and see and read and just because it’s in print does not make it… just because it’s in print does not make it the gospel. And uh… you know, because they have sensationalized this thing to an immense degree. It’s a feeding frenzy – it’s because of uh, my celebrity. The bigger the celebrity, the bigger the target. And they have to remember that. So they’ve turned this into money – it’s like who gets the biggest ratings, you know, it’s terrible what’s happened with it. But it’s part of what I have to suffer [through] as a celebrity. It’s part-part of what I have to go through. And to just uh, just know in the end that I will be vindicated, I pray, because I know the truth. I’m an innocent person. And I believe in God and love God. And just continue to pray for us.

Jesse: You know that, given your faith, in God and in yourself, and your declaration of innocence and while you are going through this storm ahem, presuming that you ah – win this, this has been a close battle, ahhh, a very intense battle, because the battle is-is not over, ah, the, appearance, given your relationship ahh, has called for lots of consternation. Is there anything that you will do differently? When this season is over?

Michael: Is there anything that I would do differently?

Jesse: Differently? When this season is over?

Michael: (Clears throat) Ahem, my level of trust will change. And ah, there-there there’s a lot of conspiracy going on. I’ll say that much. A lot of it.

Jesse: Do you think that….

Michael: All around me.

Jesse: Is the conspiracy connected to the celebrity or to the trial or to the catalog – what do you think the source of it is?
Michael: I-I can’t comment. I can’t comment Jessie, I-I don’t wanna… it ah, I’m under a gag order and it’s a very serious thing. I don’t want to say the wrong thing. With the wrong flavor. It’s a very delicate area. Very delicate where we are now.

Jesse: Good. Good. Let me ask you this question though, that for those who are praying fervently, want to help and look forward to seeing Michael Jackson again. What can people expect next from you?

Michael: Well, like-like I always say, I’m-I’m a person of the arts. I love the arts very, very, very much. And ah, I’m a musician, I’m a director, I’m a writer, I’m a composer, I’m a producer, and I love the medium. I love film very, very much. I think it’s the most expressive of all of the art mediums. The sculptor can sculpt, the painter can paint, but they capture a moment, ah, they freeze time with the moment. In film, you live the moment. You live, you have the, audiences for two hours. You have their brain, their mind – you can take them any place you want to take them. You know, and that idea is mesmerizing to me – that you can have the power to do people, to move people to change their lives and that’s where you to marry the music [and the] individual together. And that’s what excites me so much about film and the future. Because I love motion pictures very, very much.

Jesse: Given, ah, the, heat that is on you and the taxing issue that you are facing now, does it deter you from pursuing your career when this is over?

Michael: No! No. Not at all. Because ahem, I know who I am (clears throat) inside and outside and I know what I want to do. And I will always – er – you know, go with my dreams and my ideals in life. And I’m a very courageous person and I believe in perseverance, determination, and-and, you know, and all those wonderful things, and those ideals are very important for a person who is goal-orientated, you know?
end of excerpt...

Gag Order?

These two words uttered by Michael stopped me and made me go back over the paragraphs mentioning conspiracy again. A gag order? By whom?

Michael was the one on trial and it was over child molestation charges. The conspiracy, scoff some?

Michael Jackson 2003 Interview "60 Minutes"

Michael talks about a conspiracy here, on the “60 Minutes” with Ed Bradley interview. Go to 8:20 where he begins talking about it, but can’t comment further. Interview

Jackson Discovers Conspiracy Against Him

I want to know what lawyers and ex-employees were being investigated. Read the paragraph where Michael hired a new legal team. Who did Raymone Bain hire in 2006?

Peter Lopez.

Staying on the Path and Watching the Trip Wires

July 21, 2010 – Staying on the Path and Watching the Trip Wires

In the last couple of days we’ve had some unexpected excitement here due to a blog update I wrote which originally was about J. Randy Taraborrelli, his book and his article about Michael. Sometimes when you expose these things, the rumble is hardly noticeable. Tabloids don’t care, they’ve got other stories to cover.

However, when a person’s whole career is made off of one person, and you expose some things in research, they are going to be on the attack. It is their bread and butter.

For the record, Taraborrelli has not, to my knowledge, attacked me here on this blog save for the one and only post he made. I have been informed of posts attacking me in other forums, but I don’t visit those forums and I don’t care to respond.

Charles Thomson however, surprised me. If this is the way professional journalists act, I count myself lucky not to be a member.

My blog is mine. I can write whatever I want on it and I do not write to arbitrarily attack people. What I write I have researched. If I find later that I was wrong, I will put it up there. What really breeches my trust is when a young blogger/journalist who I BELIEVE is an advocate for Michael and who’s blog, aside from issues of drug abuse and a couple other disagreements, I SUPPORTED, acts like this, it raises more questions than it does resolve him.

The retraction has been retracted.

Charles Thomson makes his living off of entertainers. I do not. If he did not want his involvement with "LowlyNewshound" exposed, all he had to do was write me and talk to me POLITELY. I don’t respond well to obscenity laden threats.

I DO thank Mr. Thomson for taking down that awful blog. It’s gone, so if nothing else was accomplished, I am happy about that.

I do not condone, nor did I take part in any Twitter or FB attacks on Charles. I did have to block him from my FB page, email server, as well as several others he sent my way. I have not visited any groups that people have sent me in which he has bashed me. I have no interest in entertaining his temper tantrums.

The Lowlynewshound was started in March of 2008. The last post was September of 2009. It was a blog that had not been updated since then. I don’t know what Thomson’s motivations were with “Lowly". I don’t know why he wrote the blog, and I don’t know why he could be so nasty to Michael Jackson in one blog and turn around and defend him in another. All I know is that he did.

When Thomson demanded that I prove it was him, he removed the blog and the twitter account. Then proceeded to carpet-bomb me with emails and facebook messages gloating over the fact that the proof was now gone. Well, it is not gone. “Cached

On Profile it says:

“The candid diary of an intrepid freelance reporter”

“A fledgling freelance reporter, the Lowly Newshound encounters censorship and uncooperativeness in all aspects of day to day reporting. The Newshound will use this blog to publish information that is being withheld from the general public, particularly by jumped up local authorities. The Newshound also has a hand in celebrity journalism and will, from time to time, post gossipy tidbits or in-depth reports into the secret lives of stars.”

Email Addess:

Charles Thompson Blog

Notice Title on the typewriter atop the blog:

“Diary of a Fledgling Reporter”

On Profile:

“Charles Thomson is an Essex based freelance writer. A black music specialist, Charles has contributed to magazines including MOJO and Wax Poetics, as well as editing his own magazine, JIVE. An authority on soul and funk music, Charles appeared on the BBC's 'Electric Proms Round-Up' in 2006, where he was seen speaking to James Brown. Charles has since worked for The Sun as a Michael Jackson expert and was interviewed by Sky News, BBC News 24 and BBC World Service on the night of the star's death. Charles can be contacted via his website,”

Blogs he follows. Does this look familiar?

. . . and most interestingly,

Michael Jackson Justice which is MY blog and (drum roll please)

The candid diary of an intrepid freelance reporter

Aside from the fact that Charles follows a blog he claims to know nothing about, and aside from the fact that they both use the same title on their blogs and the fact the blog just happened to disappear when Charles discovered my blog about the Lowlynewshound, and the fact both blogs have the same list of followers (except mine because my blog wasn’t in existence until January of this year), I guess it’s safe to say that Charles has an alien clone that has copied him for the sole purpose of having a new blogger blame him for writing two blogs for no apparent reason.

There is much less evidence of the things he claims Michael Jackson has done on either blog he wrote, then the evidence I have put up on this page.

Charles Thomson is currently writing about what the press has done to Michael Jackson. Charles Thomson is that press. While his current articles advocate for Michael against the press, his insistence that Michael was a drug addict directly conflicts with the autopsy report and first hand accounts by FRIENDS of Michael Jackson.

A lie is a lie, whether it is candy wrapped by the truth or not. And any “reporter” calling a woman a “C” word in public and kicking and screaming on the proverbial floor of the blogosphere supermarket should be in drama class . . . not working for the press.

I have not talked to, attacked or responded to Charles’s temper tantrums, cursing, threats or bullying. I have copied everything he has sent me, with email headers, twitters time and dates, posts and comments. What has transpired since Monday is just beyond my ability to describe.

It’s sad. I used to be behind his blog, even if I didn’t agree with everything I was happy to see someone taking the press to task. This betrayal is tantamount to what Michael Jackson has had to put up with his whole life. It’s these lies that we are fighting, aren’t we?

And the bigger the stake in the lie, the harder they will fight. If I was Charles mother (and I’m old enough to be) he’d be in the corner for a really long time.

Well Michael? The blog in question is gone. Rejoice. Now if we can just convince him that you weren’t a drug addict.

Michael’s Perfect Soul Mate

July 19, 2010 – Michael’s Perfect Soul Mate

Genesis 2:24 – “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

Song of Solomon 2: 4-7“THE Shulamite to the Daughters of Jerusalem He brought me to the banqueting house, And his banner over me was love. Sustain me with cakes of raisins, Refresh me with apples, For I am lovesick. His left hand is under my head, And his right hand embraces me. I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, By the gazelles or by the does of the field, Do not stir up nor awaken love Until it pleases.”

Someone asked me a week ago, if I thought Lisa Marie Presley or Debbie Rowe were really in love with Michael Jackson. It was a funny question to me. Of all the rumor circulating about his preferences, his habits, his choice of company, this is probably one of the least investigated. From what I have read, people just assumed that Michael did not have a conventional marriage with either of the two ladies that were his wives.

Michael loved everyone. He was one of the few people walking the earth that could genuinely express that without reservation, no matter who you were, color, religion or ethnic background. I had read that he had a little harder time with the one-on-one relationship then he did with an audience-filled arena, but I understood that after learning what he had to deal with. Michael on some levels, had to protect himself to the extreme. However, when it came to his feelings, most would agree that he wore those on every sleeve.

If we go back to Michael’s explanation of love, and his search for it:

During the interviews with Rabbi Schmuley, Rabbi asks, “The fans love you because you can sing and because you can dance, or do you feel unconditional love from your fans?”

Michael responds:

"That's hard, 'cause I'm not in their skin. Umm, I think after discovering who I am and how I see them and make them feel good about themselves, they love me unconditionally. I love [my fans] to pieces and what makes my heart happy is when I see they support my beliefs about family and children. They have these big billboards of children and babies and they're with me, they get it, you know? They get what I'm saying.”

"Let us dream of a tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth." Michael Jacskon

Michael was always looking for unconditional love. He learned what that was from reading the Bible. What he gave he rarely got back in return. So few people know what unconditional love is, what it feels like when receiving it, or how to describe it. It is a love that is soul deep. It comes from and penetrates to your soul. It is God-created and there is nothing more fulfilling or lasting.

Michael’s connection to children, as I covered in this blog: Michael, God’s Answered Prayer to Children.

had a lot to do with unconditional love. Michael’s explanations of Jesus’ emphasis on children in scripture, of coming to Christ with “that kind of innocence”. Children are unhindered and have not yet been shoved into boxes they don’t fit into by the world. Children are not yet “of the world” and therefore recognize and can identify love as God designed it, not as the world describes it.

So then, what kind of wife would Michael have needed for a successful marriage?

“With two children of my own, I know what it means to balance the demands of family and career - and let's not even talk about finding a date for myself. Rabbi Shmuley keeps telling me he'll find me the perfect woman. My response is, 'As long as she's not a journalist” Michael Jackson – 2001

“But if you don't have that memory of being loved, you are condemned to search the world for something to fill you up. But no matter how much money you make or how famous you become, you will still feel empty. What you are really searching for is unconditional love, unqualified acceptance. And that was the one thing that was denied to you at birth.” - Michael Jackson, 2001

My friend and I talked about this and because Michael was who he was, my response was as below:

“From what I have learned about Michael, neither Lisa Marie nor Debbie Rowe were ever going to last. Michael was very biblical and even though he may have been drawn to stronger women, he couldn't relate to them. They are typically too demanding and not willing to "cleave to" him as his wife. He would have benefitted more from a Biblical type of wife. Someone who knew how important it was to "become one flesh" with your spouse. Michael by the very nature of his work, needed a woman who could become part of him in every sense of the word. She loved what he loved. His love for children and his fans became her love for them. There is no room for envy or selfishness in a life like Michael's. Not to be a doormat, but to be his support when he needs, give him his creative space when he needs . . . be his shoulder when he needs. To love him and get to know him enough to KNOW when he needs space and when he needs held. Lord knows Michael knew how to be that for others. That takes a love that only God can bring together. Michael was married to his music and his craft. His wife would also have to be.

“I agree with you about Michael marrying earlier on, if he could have found a GOOD woman, and I'm sorry, I don't consider either Lisa Marie and Debbie Rowe "good women" to be his wife. They were good friends but too independent. I so wish he could have met his soul mate of the fairer sex! It's so unfair that he should have felt so isolated and alone.”

Michael and Lisa Marie Presley

That was what I shared with a friend. People surmise that the term “biblical” in relation to things means prudish, or rigid or even judgmental.

My husband and were in such a position where, when we wanted to get married, we had to rely on God. We knew we were meant to be together, but nothing would work out. It was God’s way of backing us into a corner so we would listen. That was in 2005 and it was a very bad year for me.

During one evening of praying alone for answers, I got one and it is one of the miracle milestones in my life. During the following two weeks God answered every prayer that was weighing me down that night. My then “friend” and I got together and we prayed together and made a promise to God. We both told him we had faith that he wanted us together, but that there was something that we weren’t doing. So we promised God that we would “hold off” until the time he saw fit that we could be married, no matter how long it took. Eleven months later, our pastor married us and everything for that wedding came together.

It was during that eleven months, when all we had was each other, conversation, and a promise to keep, that we learned the most about each other. I love that man more than life. It was when we put God first in our relationship that God put us first. It was a blessing I will never forget.

As chaotic as Michael’s life was, and as isolating at times out of necessity for protection, Michael rarely had a chance to ever really explore or to find his soul mate out in the world. However, his focus on his music and the message and God filled some of those voids. I would have really liked that he had more people he could talk to about such things. Even with that said, as I discover more and more of the conversation he had with various people he worked with, recorded with and wrote songs with, I’m finding that he was not so misunderstood by the people that truly “got” him and cared about him.

If he were here today, that is what I would pray for him to have happen. He really and truly deserved it.

“If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.”Michael Jackson

I agree.

Michael and J. Randy Taraborrelli - Best Friends Money Can Buy

July 19, 2010 - Michael and J. Randy Taraborrelli
The Best Friends Money Can Buy

Theme Tabloid Junkie (right click, open in new window then minimize to listen while you read)

Romans 13:9 - For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Of the many books out there on Michael Jackson, the one written by Mr. J. Randy Taraborrelli is one that makes me the most angry. Taraborrellie’s book, “The Magic and the Madness” in short, is a mini-novel length tabloid, written by a man who claims to have been one of his friends.

The article below was sent to me by a friend who wanted me to know exactly what Taraborrelli’s relationship with Michael was. (I already knew but never checked R.T.’s background. I just knew that Michael was not happy with him). First of all, anybody that writes for a tabloid (Dailymail or any other tabloid) would not be a friend of Michael’s.

The title of the Article by Taraborrelli on the Dailymail, is “'I saw in his eyes he was dying': Michael Jackson's life-long confidante J. Randy Taraborrelli tells the real story of star's fall”

Taraborrelli and Michael in the early '70's

The article states that Mr. Taraborrelli has been a friend and confidante of Michael’s for 40 years. This is a lie. Any friendship Taraborrelli was blessed enough to have had with Michael probably ended in 1991 when Taraborrelli published “The Magic and the Madness”. That would have taken almost 20 years off of their friendship.

The article also claims that Taraborrelli, in well published compassion for Michael, claims as he sat with the press corps on the other side of the Isle during the 2005 trial (this would be the non-friend section), he saw Michael toward the end of the trial, quoting the article below, Taraborrelli said -

“The real story as I saw it —besides the shocking testimony — was that he seemed to be dying in front of my very eyes. He was clearly in terrible pain, both physical and emotional.”

With friends like Taraborrelli, it is easy to see why. It was friends like this who put him there, in that court room. It was friends like Taraborrelli who fed the press. Taraborrelli was the press who’s career was built on Michael. Taraborrelli, when looking in a mirror, is blind in one eye, and can’t see out of the other.

How close were Taraborrelli and Michael Jackson? This should help you out:

J Randy Taraborrelli REFUSED a $2 million offer from Michael Jackson NOT to publish his book about him

This article include excerpts from the book that Taraborrelli wrote, and I warn you, they are disgusting. If Taraborrelli was truly Michael’s friend, wouldn’t Michael’s pleas alone be enough for Taraborrelli to scrap the book? What if Taraborrelli had said, “okay Michael” and accepted the two million dollars to scrap the book. Would that make Taraborrelli a friend? Why would Michael even have to make such an offer if they were friends?

Also, Michael’s lawyer asked Taraborrelli if he needed help fact-checking his book and offered to do it for him (at behest of Michael). Taraborrelli refused. Reference

Taraborrelli was 35 years old when this book was published. He wrote for the press. The fact that Taraborrelli turned down two million dollars (this is a new author, mind you), tells me that there was a bigger bankroll behind that book. Taraborrelli says in that excerpt above “I wouldn’t be bought”. I charge that indeed he could and that a higher bid was behind it. Remember, Bandier was still smarting from losing that bid with Michael over the ATV catalog in 1991. The campaign to smear him could have begun back as far as 1985 when Michael first bought the ATV catalog.

More curious is Taraborrelli’s friendship with Charles Thompson of the “CharlesTompson”. What in the world would Thompson have in common with Taraborrelli?

Is it conceivable that Sony could have financed “Michael Jackson – The Magic and the Madness”? It is an intriguing possibility. There is also a blog called the “Lowlynewshound”. He makes reference to his “source inside Sony”, especially in reference to the O2 Concerts. It could mean nothing, but it’s not a friendly blog by any stretch of the imagination. And anyone seeking information about Michael from a Sony source can’t possibly be interested in nonpartial information.

I always wondered why Michael never sued the press. I was told that Michael’s faith kept him from doing so, choosing not to enact vengeance. The only lawsuit I am aware of Michael’s lawyers ever filing were countersuits in regard to Evan Chandler’s attempt to extort $60 million from Michael after the 1993 allegations, which was thrown out of court.

Does this mean that since Michael didn’t go after people legally, that he was guilty of their claims? Does this mean Taraborrelli was just a victim of a spoiled and attention-seeking Michael Jackson?

Berry Gordy Sues Taraborelli Michael Jackson's UNAUTHORIZED biographer sued by Barry Gordy for LIBEL & SLANDER

Berry Gordy apparently did not agree with Taraborrelli’s book either. Remember, this is written by a man who claims to have witnessed Michael “dying before my eyes”, while denying any responsibility for being the cause of it.

J. Randy Taraborrelli could have continued a friendship with Michael, but he abused it. I know Michael would have forgiven Taraborrelli, as it would tell him to do in the Bible. What happens to forgiveness if the guilty never ask to be forgiven?

Being forgiven is a gift, be it from someone you wounded or from God. It has to be accepted for it to do you any good. In order for one to accept it, guilt has to be recognized by the one receiving the forgiveness. If one does not accept that gift, the guilt remains whether that person recognizes it or not. This is what eats away at us.

What would Taraborrelli do today, if he turned a corner on the street and ran face to face into Michael Jackson? What would he say to him? Could he look into the face of someone he called his friend since the age of 13 and feel good about himself? Or would he look into those eyes and see his own shame staring back at him?

What would Michael do if he rounded a corner on the street and ran into that man he once knew from the time he was ten years old? Would Michael scoff at him and turn up his nose? Would he keep walking as if he’d never seen him? Or would he give him the same look as he gave Taraborrelli in that court room in 2005? That look that Taraborelli misread as a smile. A look that really said, “I have done my best to be your friend. I wish you could have seen what you threw away.”

In selling out a friend to a tabloid, a book and possibly a corporation, Taraborrelli threw away a friendship that most reading this blog would have cherished and nurtured. There is no amount of money that will ever bring back that lost and misspent time. And I doubt Taraborrelli will ever find the friendship of a dollar bill any more fulfilling.

That look in Michael's eyes that day in the court room was the last time Taraborrelli said he saw him. I would not want that to be my last memory of him and that is something Taraborrelli will have to live with for the rest of his life.

Deuteronomy 32:34-36 - ‘Is this not laid up in store with Me, Sealed up among My treasures? Vengeance is Mine, and recompense; Their foot shall slip in due time; For the day of their calamity is at hand, And the things to come hasten upon them.’
“For the LORD will judge His people And have compassion on His servants, When He sees that their power is gone, And there is no one remaining, bond or free.
