Michael Jackson Justice: The Voice of Truth Says Do Not Be Afraid

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".

The Voice of Truth Says Do Not Be Afraid

October 15, 2010 – The Voice of Truth Says Do Not Be Afraid


Deuteronomy 1: 28 – 31:
“28 Where can we go up? Our brethren have discouraged our hearts, saying, “The people are greater and taller than we; the cities are great and fortified up to heaven; moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakim there.”  29 “Then I said to you, ‘Do not be terrified, or afraid of them. 30 The LORD your God, who goes before you, He will fight for you, according to all He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, 31 and in the wilderness where you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.”


There has been so much uncovered in the last two months regarding Michael, who his friends really were and who they weren’t.  I have had a hard time getting my head back into the lyrics and analyzing them because I cannot get past what surrounded Michael.  This is definitely a story the world should know about because it played a huge part on what was done to him.

On a much larger scale, Michael endured not only attacks on his character, his parenting, his sexuality, his intelligence, his work ethic, his health issues and even his children.  They went after his family to splinter them and weaken that base as well.  They are still doing it.

Everyone from the most innocuous teen friendships that turned opportunistic to the business associates who bilked him while getting paid by him and the packs of dogs that were sent to surround him.  Imagine trying to fire people you know are trying to destroy you only to have another Jackal sent in to replace them. 

Frank DiLeo


Everything changed for Michael after they forced DiLeo out.  Who are “they”?  DiLeo says during a Diane Sawyer Interview:

“Diane: Why did he fire you?

Frank: Why did he fire me? That’s a good question, but I think it was ah, ah, he fired me because it was politically asked of him. There was an outside record executive with a big time lawyer and one executive at Sony who would like to see Michael’s power cut in half. And by getting rid of me was half the power.”


For the record, I do not like this source because many interviews listed here are anti-Michael, but you should read the rest of this interview.  This was right after the 60 Minutes Interview with Ed Bradley after Michael was arrested in 2005.  Does Frank DiLeo sound like a conspirator?  No.  And I believe DiLeo knew what was going on, or at least knew that these people did not have Michael’s best interests in mind.  So much has been made of DiLeo’s “karma” comment without including the rest of that quote, and we know who is doing that.  This is what these people do to sway your thinking.  They “photo-shop” interviews, slice, layer, blotch, liquefy and blur the lines to make an interview say what they want it to say.  Seeing how the TINI people are including DiLeo in the attack is enough to look at the possibility that DiLeo may have been a good guy, even if he was out of Michael’s life during the later part of his career.

Tommy Mottola


It seems Sony also has a preferred publisher for it’s employees to use when writing memoirs.  Two of them, Tommy Mottola and Randy Taraborrelli use the same U.K. publisher for their books. (Contributed by Vanessa)

“NEW YORK — Record executive Tommy Mottola's (muh-TOH'-luhz) latest project is words only.

Grand Central Publishing announced Monday that the former CEO Of Sony Music Entertainment and ex-husband of Mariah Carey has a memoir scheduled for release in 2012.

"The Last Starmaker" will cover his years with Carey and his work with such recording artists as Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson, who once accused Mottola of being a racist.

Mottola helped discover Carey, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez and Gloria Estefan, among other performers.”  Source  

The latter is a stretch.  Gloria Estefan was with Miami Sound Machine since the late 70’s.  Motolla “inherited” her, as well as Dion and Lopez when Sony bought out their labels as they did with Michael’s label.

And Taraborrelli’s book, “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe” is no less tabloid than his book about Michael Jackson, which was re-released after Michael’s death.  Both books have the same publisher, Grand Central Publishing.  How diversifying.  Source  For such a large corporation you would think Sony would at least make an effort to APPEAR uninvolved with these endeavors.

Charles Thomson & R. Taraborrelli

"Sorry John....Take THAT Taraborrelli!"


Charlie has just finished a glowing, self-glorifying interview with poet/author, Lorette Luzajic in which he discusses his maltreatment at the hands of “crazy” Michael Jackson fans and “conspiracy theorists”.  The only problem with this is Charles is one of the few people out there claiming any connection to Michael that does not believe there was a conspiracy against Michael.  One would think that Charlie would have developed a thicker skin before tackling Michael Jackson fans.  Especially considering his contribution to the very tabloid fodder he writes was committed against Michael.

In an attempt to restore any integrity he had, Charlie resurfaces after a couple months of lying low, hoping that Michael fans will have as short a memory as he seems to have.  The interview was in five parts, all of them seeming to center around conspiracy theorists and Charlie’s complaint that they “claim to research” but don’t.  This however does not change the fact that Charlie is a part of this very conspiracy and the only ones who claim there wasn’t one against Michael are all in the same club with the company that starts with an “S”.

From one “conspiracy theorist”, here is what I found during my research:

Charlie is either related to, or was handpicked to become a troll for Sony.  His very first assignment?  An administrator for a fake Michael Jackson fan forum called MJStar.com which actually still exists, but Charlie has moved on.  His next assignment was the Lowly Newshound blog which was deleted the first time he was uncovered.  Source http://michaelsguardian.blogspot.com/2010/07/michael-and-j-randy-taraborrelli-best.html and this source http://michaelsguardian.blogspot.com/2010/07/staying-on-path-and-watching-trip-wires.html , and this source http://michaelsguardian.blogspot.com/2010/08/sony-and-press-unprecedented-character.html 

I have found that Charlie is either misinformed or continues to perpetuate old information obtained through tabloids, which tells me he is not exactly a research aficionado.  People like this spend more time accusing others of the sins they themselves are challenged with then trying to fix their own character problems.

Charlie and Randy T. are really no different than the packs of “stalkers” that Sony’s goons sent after Michael  in his “last eight months”.  They are tabloid stalkers, stalking in writing, rumor and innuendo. 

Randy T’s “books” are really just extra long tabloids, considered a good read if you like choking on river sludge, and Charlie is his “tabloidee-in-training”.  Terrible-ellie’s little  protégé’ needs to learn some temperament.  If people had written half the hurtful things about Charlie as he has written about Michael?   The poor boy would be in therapy.  And he has the nerve to complain about people calling him the very word he called me on Twitter (yes, that classy “c” word).  I still have copies of the correspondence/tweets he’s made. He should be thanking me that I haven’t posted THOSE.   He needs a couple of bars of soap to chew on, that’s for sure.

These two people were the ones jumping through hoops after my blogs posted, not me.  Not at any time did my facebook page go down nor did I deactivate it.  I never took my blog down and I’ve never closed or protected my Twitters.  However, I have had to block people who can’t seem to mind their manners or who have threatened me.

Notice that the only careers these people seem to have is siphoning off those that truly create?  Taraborrelli was a journalist (launched off of Michael), which is about the least creative thing I can think of, unless lying is now an art.  Charlie pops up out of oblivion to write an exclusive on the “Thriller 25th Anniversary” with the head of Sony Marketing in the U.K. when he’s barely old enough to shave (again, launched off of Michael), and Samantha, who seems to have a job that doesn’t exist, is a self professed, self-photographer, which brings me to another revelation:

Oprah Winfrey and the Jackson Family

Michael says, "I've been HERE before!"


"Getting many tweets abt Oprah. its very important 2 not let that same audience of Oprah think wht Oprah said or thought in the past was true.Talked to my grandma before she did it.We all want to clear MJ's name.That's our first priority. We are trying to set the record straight ,I am the first person who is angry at Oprah and how she turned her back at my uncle. However you let things linger and the world believes.I personally don't care what Oprah thinks, but I do care what her millions of audience thinks about my uncle. Esp. when it's not true at all...It's time to set the record straight with everyone".  -tajjackson3 Taj Jackson

i will continue to do my best with my family. all i need is your love and support. i will never give up

END-----------------------------

“Let the fuel that ignites our desire for truth, and keeps us unified on the road to justice for him.”

I wanted to highlight this because this was something almost word for word that my friend Micheline had posted to Randy some time back.   I was told that Randy does read his tweets, even if he glances over them he DOES read them.  Hate-tweeters beware.  There is no taking it back once it’s twittered.

I really hope the Jackson family is feeling the support from everyone out there.  Judging by Randy’s messages above, they are.

Please, please keep saying that prayer for the family I published in this blog last month - http://michaelsguardian.blogspot.com/2010/09/protection-prayer-for-michael-and-his.html

Please include those people that were helping Michael, even if you don’t know who they are, God does.  Because these are the same people that are will bring about Justice for Michael and his children.   They need protection too.

Another Spin on the ATV Acquisition for Michael

This is another version of Michael’s acquisition of the ATV catalog back in 1985.  There is a little more detail to it than before and keep in mind who the publisher is of this article . . . Very Branca-friendly.  However there is some very cute, endearing descriptions of Michael’s actions and reactions during the course of this whole transaction which ran almost eight months.  This story debunks any claims by any Sony-propagandists and bloggers that Michael wasn’t involved in his businesses even back then.  Even though the story is told from Branca’s point of view.  Michael Becomes a Corporation

AEG and Oprah

When I first saw this, I was a bit nervous because I wasn't sure what it meant:
http://www.lalive.com/eventsales/aeg-digital.html

When looking through the whole web site, what I thought was an AEG-Oprah connection really wasn't . . . well, maybe just a little.

As with several of their other clients listed here, AEG does not actually produce the Oprah Winfrey show, Oprah only uses one of the studios for the recording of her show.  It does not say they do the editing for her show (one would hope that would be the case, especially in light of this upcoming interview), but I was still surprised that L.A. Live existed as it states on the web site.  I am assuming that the web site is pretty new since some of the pages are still in the planning stages.  When did this happen?

"Initial construction at L.A. Live began in September 2005.[4] The first phase opened in October 2007 and contains the Nokia Theatre, the Nokia Plaza, a retail plaza, as well as an underground parking garage, holding a fraction of the project's expected total of 4,000 parking spaces"  Source

I wanted to include this information because I know Karen Faye Tweeted about it yesterday and I know the rumors are going to run rampant.  I was also emailed questions about this.  In a nutshell . . . this is my 
OPINION:

This is a rather large complex consisting of theaters, office space, recording and editing studios, apartments and more . . . If Oprah uses any of their facilities to house her show, I can only hope that AEG would talk some sense into her about Michael and make her respect Michael's family.  However, since Oprah in this case is but the "customer" using AEG's facilities, I probably have my hopes up too high . . . so I will pray that Oprah was respectful. That's the best I can do.

I am watching this death hoax series of videos (not great but still interesting) and they mention a radio interview with Phillips about trying to get Michael to do some concerts for the openning of the 02 Arena 2 years prior. (The venue, rebranded the O2, was reopened to the public on 24 June 2007 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_O2#Opening) The bit that I have heard sounds really interesting and relevant. This video has a part of it within: http://www.youtube.com/user/karenjoymc#p/u/30/H45iqD0R7SQ

I’m not the only one that believes AEG was not one of the ones after him:
http://www.youtube.com/user/karenjoymc#p/u/2/v2w2GCrFAHM   It’s nice to know that I am not the only one finding this information.  This kind of scared me.  This is exactly what we have discussed on various places of this blog.

I searched for the videos (3 parts) and they have been deleted from youtube. Here are the links from a post I found: AEG Randy Phillips radio interview about Michael Jackson

  1. Well Bonnie, unfortunately the 3 parts videos are not available. And the source you use to show that you are not the only one who think AEG was not after him..., really? can you take the delirious people who talks about dead hoax seriously?
    Somebody who says to have real sources, that there was a terrorist threat against Michael and then the president, the FBI and CIA are involved?
    I never saw just a ridiculous statement. My obvious opinion.

  2. Well Beatriz you are of course entitled to your opinion as I am mine. It is posted as a point of discussion only. But then this is coming from someone that still thinks Samantha was trusted with Michael's children, LOL.

  3. In addition to all the hubbub about Oprah, the LMP interview will be aired this upcoming THURSDAY (Oct. 21st) right AFTER she airs TWO shows discussing pedophilia and molestation (Monday, Oct 18 and Wednesday, Oct. 20).

    About the LMP interview, it reads as follows: "Thursday, October 21 All New! For The First Time: Lisa Marie Presley Speaks Out About The Death Of Ex-Husband Michael Jackson(PG) Oprah is on location in England as Lisa Marie Presley speaks out about the death of her ex-husband, Michael Jackson, for the first time. In her one and only interview, she opens up about the intimate details of their marriage, the parallels between Michael and her famous father, Elvis Presley, and why the marriage ended. Thursday's Oprah."

    So has Oprah changed her stance regarding Michael? NO! Even WORSE (no surprise here...) Opie discusses with LMP, and I quote again with emphasis on this: "the parallels between Michael and her famous father, Elvis Presley." Well gee...what does this mean??? In simple translation: MICHAEL WAS A DRUG ADDICT. How nice...and to think that Katherine granted this evil wench an interview too!!! I would hope that if there is a single quote that has been twisted, edited out, or whatever, that the Jackson family would launch a hell of a lawsuit against this evil wench for libel and slander. Especially if they do what Michael did (the hidden camera) with Bashir! I REALLY hope that they seriously did not trust this woman enough, and took precautions like that. Good grief! I CAN'T WAIT for this ignorant woman's show to end!...

  4. I was interested in Beatriz' comment that she thought the FBI and CIA being interested in MJ was ridiculous. Actually, the FBI and CIA have been interested in many entertainment personalities. I even found a book on Amazon about this subject, called "Celebrity Secrets: Official Government Files on the Rich and Famous", which claims to have obtained it's information through the Freedom of Information Act.

  8. Bonnie, are these the Randy Phillips interviews you were referencing? These links should work for the interviews I found. Interesting note. In part 3, Randy discusses how he and Frank Dileo broke the news of Michael's passing to his children. Randy clarifies by saying that Frank actually told the children the horrible news and Randy was standing some distance behind him, although he doesn't go into detail about the actual conversation. The interview brings back the emotion of that first few days after Michael's death for me and brought tears to my eyes. Randy mentioned that his first thoughts on hearing of Michael's passing were of his kids and acknowledge how much Michael loved them. Some parts were a little annoying as Randy talked about Michael's lack of punctuality and how he had to firmly but gently scold him for it.

  9. beatriz, concerning the terrorist threat against Michael and the president. This was an actual event that occured in the early 90's. This event is detailed in the FBI report that was released earlier this year. The person was caught, stood trial, and served a person term of at least two years as a result of their threats. Threats that the FBI took very seriously and clearly prosecuted.

    The report states:

    "The Bureau also investigated threats made against Mr. Jackson and others by an individual who was later imprisoned for these crimes."

  10. Bonnie, I understand the posting of the death hoax video and the point you were trying to make, but hold on a minute, there's Randy Phillips' voice talking about trying to get Michael in 2007 for the O2 opening, Michael not being interested, but, then in 2008 Randy P. says he gets a call from "somebody at Colony Capital", they had just restructured Michael's Neverland loan and he (Michael) was ready and asked that person at Colony to get in touch with Phillips. I don't buy the entire death hoax scenario at all, but I do find that voice clip of Phillips about being contacted by "somebody at Colony Capital" really interesting.

  11. Great news concerning Gardner School Auditorium and the decision to have Michael's name on display once again!!!

  12. Lady, I acknowledge that I'm nervous about LMP's interview but I do want to hear it. Although Michael was not a hopeless addict, he did have on and off chemical dependancy issues over the years. Of course, we know of at least one occasion where he went into rehab for a dependancy issue in 1993. If LMP does discuss this, I seriously doubt that she is going to paint a picture of Michael being a hopeless addict. In her defense, she is sensitized to the idea because of her dad's situation. Michael is not Elvis of course, but the two did have basic points in common. Both experienced immense celebrity, especially Michael, along with being prisoners of their own fame with both being subjected to scores of cloying sycophants and endless worring about who they could or couldn't trust. This is bound to create emotional stress and I'm sure LMP could see the effects of that stress first hand in the early 90's with Michael. (Bonnie, turn away because I'm going to mention LMP's blog post from last year.) LMP mentions a conversation she had with Michael where he matter-of-factly states that he felt he would end up like LMP's dad. This may have changed after Michael had children, but it does appear that he had a fatalistic view of his future in the early 90's. At that time, he would regularly sign autographs with the date 1998 under his name. He would turn 40 that year and it has been said that he didn't believe that he would live past that date. Again, this was BEFORE he started having children. Jermaine had stated on Larry King last year that the family generally believed that Michael would not live into his old age, in fact the family were surprised he made it to 50 of all things! It was alarming to hear him say that and it about broke my heart to hear it...:-(

    I'm hopefull of LMP's interview because of this quote of hers in her blog post from last year:

    "Any ill experience or words I have felt towards him in the past has just died inside of me along with him." -LMP

  14. Wow . . . lots can happen in a day! Now we have an actual date for LMP's Oprah interview, Michael (Oh God THANK YOU!!!) gets his name UNCOVERED from the Elementary school (long fight for that one! Michael!!!!!) And We discover some interviews of Randy's that debunk SOME of the rhetoric out there concerning his (lack of?) compassion for Michael and his children.

    I know what everyone thinks of the Hoax researchers but they happen to have some good information and are good at researching and putting 2 + 2 together. I don't agree with everything they say either, but you will be amazed at how many "loose ends" we have in common in trying to solve some mysteries in what happened to Michael.

    SandyK Thank you so much for posting the links that work. I will replace them on the blog right now. Also for posting the information regarding the FBI files on Michael for Beatriz.

    Too late . . . I will not deny that Lisa Marie said this. This does not upset me because Michael had talked about disappearing or hiding in disguise and any number of "get me outta here" scenarios in various interviews. But any prolonged lingering over "suicide" assumptions and I will find a way to write LMP a nice long letter.

    I don't want to speculate on what could POSSIBLY be discussed because I would go nuts with just . . . nuts. Sick to my stomach. See what happens. God, watch over him please???

  18. I did not find the statement by Randy about Colony Capital odd because Tom Barrack was interviewed saying that he put in a call to Anschutz after talking to Michael (the same "undervalued asset" interview). From that I assumed that Mr. Anschutz contacted RP, not Colony, but ?????

    TINI had put out there that Jermaine introduced Tohme to Michael, who contacted Colony or got him set up with Colony. But Barrack new Michael long before Tohme was in the picture or acquainted with Michael . . . Barrack and Michael were neighbors.

    If I could communicate with Ms. Winfrey I'd like to say this:

    Ms. Winfrey,

    Please, I respectfully ask why are you doing this to Michael yet again???? Why have LMP's interview following these subjects?? Surely you see the conflict here. LMP's interview I'm sure will be remembered and talked about for years to come but so will the fact of the shows preceeding it due to their subject matter. Surely this is not lost on you. Your name is on the marquee, this is your show, please delay these other two programs for the childrens sake if not for Michael's. Please don't let this scheduling arrangement become part of history.

    Thank you.

    Regards,

    Sandy K.

  21. SandyK, you say Jermaine said the family thought Michael would not live to old age. Wow, I hadn't heard that. Do you think Jermaine might have been referring to Michael's general overall health when making that statement? I hate to talk about the coroner's report, but it states Michael had chronic "interstitial pneumonitis" and "bronchiolitis" and I have read articles saying that both these conditions would have been aggravated by the use of respiratory depressants such as those given by Murray (a whole other story). Michael did have some chronic problems, although not life threatening if proper care was taken.

    Do you think perhaps Jermaine was speaking along the lines of Michael's general health, lupus and vitiligo included? And yes it is heartbreaking to hear his family didn't think he would make it to 50.

  22. Wow, there is so much in this blog. Thank you Bonnie again. Firstly, celebration for the victory of finally having Michael's name uncovered at the school. This should never have happened in the first place and it has taken a long time and many letters to achieve the victory but justice and fairness has finally been achieved. We should all give thanks.

    Now, about the hoax videos. In the world of Michael Jackson, anything is possible and I think it never hurts to keep an open mind. Look at how much information about Michael's world that we have all discovered since his passing? So, I think information, as long as it's accurate, should never invite automatic judgement in black and white terms. I suggest we all keep our minds open to any possibilities and in time, the truth, hopefully reliable, will be revealed to all of us.

    Thank you Lady for letting us know about Oprah and LMP. You know, LMP irritates me when she raved on in her blog about her trying to save Michael from himself and of course how she always manages to remind people about her father. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I really do not think that LMP could save anybody and despite all of the privileges afforded to her since her birth, she has not exactly managed her own life in an exemplary manner. She's never had to work like a dog since childhood with the huge responsibility of her family's financial security on her shoulders. She wouldn't know what it's like to be abused as a child, put down for your colour and appearance and pull yourself up by your boot straps as a black performer ruled by a white man's industry to become the greatest entertainer on the planet. All of this being achieved while you are suffering from a disfiguring illness and being publicly attacked by the media because you wish to retain your own God given values in this world.

    So I believe it's a crock when LMP's ego would even contemplate being able to save somebody with the strength of character such as Michael Jackson. Shamone?

    Randy T and Thompson - yep tabloid dribble with RT's books. I flicked through one in my library once. RT is not a biographer of substance and since I have read those blogs written by Twistedvision on MJ Star, I will never again believe that Thompson was anything but an MJ hater of magnitude.

    Michael's purchase of the catalogue back in 1985 was a fantastic achievement. I am an Australian as was Robert Holmes a Court whose history was one of a very successful corporate raider until the stock crash in 1987. He passed away in 1990 and there are many who believe he would have gone to prison if he hadn't had died for white collar crimes such as asset stripping. His financial empire was decimated but at the time he sold the catalogue in 1985 he was still acquiring assets.

    I don't believe LMP thought Michael would commit suicide, not at all. She doesn't mentioned in her blog at all that he wrote 1998 under his signature in the early 90's. That information came from research that I had done over the last year. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Elvis died of an accidental drug overdose, not suicide. I interpreted LMP's comment to mean that Michael envisioned himself dieing in a similar fashion. Again, correct me if I'm wrong.

  24. Bonnie- "Too late . . . I will not deny that Lisa Marie said this. This does not upset me because Michael had talked about disappearing or hiding in disguise and any number of "get me outta here" scenarios in various interviews. But any prolonged lingering over "suicide" assumptions and I will find a way to write LMP a nice long letter."

    I agree and won't be far behind ya on that one!

  28. Bonnie – thank you for this eye opening post. What make me sad though about Charlie is the very Michael Jackson’s fans that refused to see his year’s trash talk about Michael and glorify him because he wrote some articles in favor of him. I can understand people change and we can’t be the same like we were before. But it would have been very polite if he acknowledged his bad actions in the past and we all would have respected him.

    I wonder if the family invited Oprah to conduct the interview or she asked for it? Taj said “We are trying to set the record straight.” “I do care what her millions of audience think about my uncle." So the family wants to do this interview to straight the record to her audience; therefore they (her audience) are the main concern not the whole world? Otherwise, they could have done the same interview with any other talk show to straight the record to the world, right?

    To me to straight the record starts from her first before her audience. Maybe we don’t know she probable secretly apologized to them to allow her to do the interview. There is no way she will do this interview if the interview is really to straight the record about Michael before she realizes his innocence and her mistakes vilifying him over the years.

  30. Hello Bonnie, very interesting post.

    I am elated to hear that MJ's name has been uncovered!!!!!!!
    I always believed Frank D had Michael's best interest at heart. He new who instigated his firing and why. He was the only former manager that came to stand by Michael through the trial. That speaks volumes....

    As for Oprah....hmmm, I prefer to give her the benefit of the doubt this time around. Yes she aired that show at the time of jury deliberations and many viewed it as a slap in Michael's face. Could it be that she simply ceased the moment to bring awareness to the subject matter? Oprah is a survivor of childhood molestation... I prefer to wait and see were this interview with Mr and Mrs Jackson goes and what it may and may not reveal.

    LMP...another hmmmm. She was deep in love with Michael. I am very interested in hearing what she has to say. Above all I hope she is honest. We must remember it will be from her point of view that she speaks.

    Randy P is a businessman and business comes first. Michael new his kind and responded accordingly.

    As for the hoaxers and thier videos...Bonnie I agree with you they are investigating the smallest discrepancy. I don't always agree with some of the conclusions but some excellent points are being made. I suggest MagicalXscapism and MJFANFOREVERANDADAY. They both make a serious effort that you may find very interesting Bonnie.

  31. I just want to join all of your happiness for the good news of uncovering Michael’s name from the school. That’s a major accomplishment of fans who participated for their voice to be heard.

    I hope LMP is matured and humbled and gain enough wisdom to talk about the good times she had with Michael and emphasize his good nature for all. However, I wonder why Oprah’s LMP interview will follow after she have pedophilia and molestation shows. The woman is very tricky and I believe she is trying to prepare her audience mind before she talks to LMP about Michael.

    This was a similar trick she used having shows about molestation and pedophilia while Michael was on trial to brainwash her audience to hate Michael. I have no clue why the family wants to be interviewed by her, but I believe it must be for a good reason knowing what she did to Michael.

  32. If I may, I'd like to post this link to an article that Seven did on Oprah's comments about Michael over the years. The reason I add this is because I think it provides a context for how Oprah views Michael and her apparent obsession with the false allegations leveled against him over the years and my theory on how it relates to her own personal issues. I have always found her comments regarding him very curious and disturbing as I am sure many of you have as well. I'm certainly no mental health care expert but something inside me feels that she is, maybe unconsiously, trying to excorsize the painful feelings she still bares concerning things that happened in her childhood through her obsession with Michael's alledged issues. Part of me feels that the still "wounded child," if I may use that phrase, inside her wants someone to project those hurt feelings onto (i.e. Psychological projection). Who better than the high profile Michael Jackson. Again, I don't feel she is doing this with consious intent but I wish she would stop and get some serious therapy. She can never discuss his situation objectively and she never seems to mention the mountains of evidence that prove Michael's innocents. She is, I beleive, still too caught up in her own issues that have nothing to do with Michael. Anyway, this idea is my own theory and not part of what Seven has put forward.

    Yes, I agree with you, however, it is not uncommon for women, especially young women (LMP was in her mid 20's at the time) to feel they can "save" the man they love from themselves. Of course, this is an immature belief as no one can ever do that for another person. I've seen this with friends of mine over the years with their husbands and it always turns out badly.

    I also agree that there is so much in Michael's life that you mentioned that LMP can never identify with, or any of us for that matter. However, I do believe she loved him and that those initial feelings have been brought back to the surface as a result of his death. I do pray that her immature comments of the past will be replaced with a more mature look at her relationship with Michael, and perhaps even acknowledging that past immaturity.

    I have compassion for her in spite her past comments and I wish her the best.

  37. Sandyk - In regard to Taaj . . . I will assume that anything she posts is to try to regain her audience. We were told the children were not interviewed. Until We here otherwise that is the case as far as I'm concerned. Taaj is still under the delusion that people believe anyone in that family is going to talk to her after what she did.

    I agree with Seven's interpretation of Oprah's obsession with Michael and the accusations. I would like to ask Oprah, since I was also abused, why I don't have the same obsession with wanting Michael to be guilty as SHE does?

    Transfering guilt to someone that is not guilty is a highly UNCONSTRUCTIVE WAY to deal with something. She should be going after the person who hurt her, not Michael, who was himself abused throughout his whole life by people LIKE HER.

    I agree. It's amazing but sometimes these people have successful bread-winning Hubbies too. So, some of them are obviously afforded the luxury of being able to be a stay-at-home/work-at-home parent. Not all of them are possibly on $ONY's payroll, I'm sure.

    I am a work-at-home Mom, but only because of an incident with Congestive Heart Failure in January of 2005 sapping most of my natural energies out of me. Come 1:30 pm, I'm ready for a nap on account of the medications I am forced to take! Naps are not allowed in the mainstream workforce. However, with me working at home, it's perfectly acceptable. So, I'm able to work around it. But, I'm one of the lucky ones. Not everyone else is.

    Even still, with my luckiness, my time is for the most part consumed with work, then my family duties topping them off. Sometimes I sit back with my evening cup of herbal tea and wonder: "Darn...there's just NEVER enough time!" So yes... I'm like you. I wonder how it's realistically possible for many of them to do what they do and have done without earning a paycheck along the way. C'mon...we all have light bills, heat bills, food bills... you get the picture. It's a part of life, and yet here these people are... It makes one wonder and raises more than a few flags of suspicion too.

    Karin, thank you and I agree with you, which is why I posted them. I have for a long time straddled the fence on "alive/dead" meadow with Michael. I still straddle this fence and I know many don't agree with me and some (not here but 'out there') have used that as a source of ridicule. That is wrong.

    Anyhow, you are right . . . we are discovering more and more about not only Michael, but the whole machine that worked to bring him down and how infiltrated his world was with those wanting to commit evil against him. I am sure there is still much more to come out. And we have to stay aware.

    Does anyone know when the Jackson's interview will air?

    I must admit, I am Shocked that they would even consider doing an interview with Oprah!

    WHY? Of all people....Why Oprah?

    If Oprah is Anti-Michael, why would the Jackson's do an interview with her? I don't get it?

    The very idea is a recipe for WAR!

    What is going on here?

    I do not trust Oprah at all!

    I agree with Randy Jackson, and I wish they would find someone else to interview them.

    I just hope the Jackson's know what their doing.
    I hope they protect themselves in every way.


    I agree 100% with Lady, about getting another camera or lawyer and making sure things are not edited wrong!

    The Jackson's need to protect themselves and Michael's good name!

  44. Note: The following statements are my opinions.
    Nothing more and nothing less.



    If Michael is still alive, I don't see how he could ever come back as HIMSELF.

    Now if he came back as someone else, maybe.

    But then, we wouldn't know it was him. To us, he would still be deceased.


    But, if he came back as himself, the people who wanted him dead, would shoot him dead in public, the way they killed Martin Lurther King.

    They would make sure they get him, THIS TIME!

    So if Michael is Really still alive, I will never know it.

  49. Lady & Bonnie,

    In the past blog comment, I don’t remember which one, I think one of you comment that Oprah could probably have some affiliation with $ony. Right after reading that comment, the excuse that was given by many that she was acting so abusive to Michael because of her own experience being a victim of a child abuse went out of the window for me. Now Lady you confirmed it again saying, “Oprah's show is broadcasted through CBS (Columbia Broadcasting System) affiliates and guess who OWNS CBS??? Are you ready??? The answer is $ONY!!!” I truly believe her continues insistence making Michael guilty of a crime has some to do with $ony more than her own bad experience everybody is talking about.

    Oprah is very smart and knows what she is doing. She is helping her business associates ($ony) who conspired to destroy Michael by giving them a platform to spread their hate.

    I believe deep within her she knows he is not guilty of any crime. But she won’t show it to the public because it’s all about mighty $$$$$$ that she cares. Destroying a beautiful person is nothing to her. That’s why she is extremely greedy, conniving, and manipulative human being, and God sees all that, and she needs a prayer.

    I am really sorry to hear that about your health.

    I can understand that some have more time than others, but it just amazes me how anyone can tweet, FB etc etc etc every single hour literally every single hour in a day!! I mean even if it is just 1 tweet, when it is posted every single hour and specifically in response to others, that tells me that some sit there all day looking at their mentions and deciding to whom to reply. Even if one can afford it financially (via providing husband etc), I fail to see how they do the basic chores such as cooking or cleaning (just examples). I don't know, maybe I am being way too sceptical, but I've learned to listen to everyone and trust no one, not completely, and specifically when it surrounds Michael. But it seems certain individuals want to shove information (real or imagined) down our throats and if you don't buy it and vocalize it, you're attacked and "you're just a fan" and "you don't inside knowledge of the situation etc", all of which is only partially true. But I do have intellect, instict and social experience. So far I've had success in all of it as it helped me remove the spoiled and rotten from my life, and I'm "only" in my early thirties.

    The biggest share of blame lies with one of the culprits, Karen Faye. By sharing her snide remarks about the family while boasting of inside knowledge yet acting secretive and evasive about it, she in reality encourages and incites those who listen. Of course, she washes hands of all responsibility because, in her mind, her Twitter page is her private space and no one has to read if they don't like it. How she thinks it private is beyond all logic and intellect. Maybe she needs to revisit Twitter settings, though I somehow doubt that she wants it private in the first place.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Sandy, I hear what you are saying about Lisa Marie. Perhaps I do judge her harshly for the words on her blog last year after Michael's passing. I respect the fact that she was Michael's wife and obviously he loved her. I just thought it was arrogant of her to think that she could save Michael from himself but I wasn't alowing for the arrogance of youth.

    I have the greatest admiration of Michael - not because of his natural gifts but because of who he was and his strength of character and most of all for his loving heart. Since childhood he worked so hard and overcame so much and even when they kept knocking him down he kept on getting up. I felt in her blog that she was labelling Michael in the same manner as her father and I didn't think that was fair.

    Bonnie, yes I think we should always keep an open mind. With Michael I never reach the stage where I believe I can truly know what was going on in his world. Much of it is still an enigma even when the layers keep being peeled away, there is always more mystery. Sometimes I wonder if I am just plain fascinated or frustrated or probably both. Lol - at least we still have a sense of humour. Hope your move goes well Bonnie. When is it happening?

    Aida I agree with your statement and I'm glad you posted it. I just wanted to say though, that I don't believe Josie meant that the way it came out in the post. Two separate statements about Oprah not believing in Christ and Oprah being for Oprah (which are both true statements).

    Christians and Muslim's both believe in God. We also both believe in Christ existed. Michael's brother Jermaine is Muslim and Jermaine loves Michael who is Christian and defends his brother (and tried to protect him as well).

    On the contrary I believe your religion is VERY popular. It is just not getting a very favorable reputation due to some acting in the name of your religion. The same could be said for Christians who are acting in the name of Christ. I cite the Westboro Baptist Church funeral protests as an example. ♥

    Thank you so much for extending your understanding and apology. I admire you and appreciate you for it, because only a very few seem to have the strength and excellence of character to acknowledge the possibility of error, even if what is perceived of them wasn't intentionall.

    Perhaps it is only my flawed perception of the point that you were trying to make with that comment that made me state my hurt, so, I too am sorry if indeed I have overreacted.

    To every other person that responded due to my comment, I have to say I am pleased to know that people like you still exist. Believe me, these days it is not easy to be a Muslim, depending on where you live.
    I also want to say, because I think it is important to acknowledge this, while we are in agreement that all major religions (and specifically the Abrahamic religions) have so much (good if I may add) in common, we obviously do differ greatly on the very fundamental of just who God is. Jews are still waiting for the Messiah, Christians believe in Trinity, and Muslims believe Jesus was the Messiah but not the Son of God, rather one of His mightiest and most important Messengers.
    There are obviously many other differences but it is unnecessary to point them here as this is not the place for it, I'll leave it to the scholars of all religions to debate about as they do, which I also think is healthy.

    With my pointing out the differences I just wanted to illustrate that they are necessary to acknowledge, perhaps even moreso than what we all have in common. Why? Because no one debates whether we can co-exist peacefully based on what we have in common alone, that's already a given. In my opinion, it is the differences we naturally do not agree on, and it would be unfair to ask a follower of any religion to agree to the fundamental beliefs of another and betray or even nullify their own belief in God. Rather, I believe it crucial to acknowledge the differences in order to illustrate that despite them we can not only co-exist but do so peacefully and honorably.

    I just hope that I haven't made any one of you feel like you have to, even slightly, undermine your core beliefs in order not to offend, as that was certainly not my intention :)

    Gosh, do we sound like a bunch of hippies or what? lol

    Bonnie, I think we "fundamentalists" are not such bad people after all, haha. I know you've been accused of it, as if though it is something bad and evil. Sheesh. I think some need to look up the definition of "fundamentalism".

    P.S. Watch out for Tylenol all, there's been a recent recall for mold.

    Ok, back to Mike now, sorry we even had to "go there" with all the religious talk, but in any case, I think it was healthy.

    Bonnie, I have to admit I am completely lost in all of the information now, I really do not know where to begin, specifically about certain TINI individuals, I can't decide who is who or what their true agenda is or even if they have one. On one hand I see so much proof and reason to at least suspect them, but on another I am watching certain Twitter exchange between them and opposing parties and can't help but find it difficult whom to believe, as none of them seem quite innocent based on what I see.
    It's hard not to pay attention to what one may think are "small insignificant players" and focus more on those who were DIRECTLY in contact with Michael. In fact, I think it is the wrong thing to do, those who are directly interacting with fans and posing as one themselves are to be watched very critically, if indeed they have an agenda. It's just hard for people like me who haven't been around to witness the beginning of the whole mess to really know who is who.
