It’s a Small World After All . . .

The Discussion Started with Fox News

A recent conversation about the Fox News/Murdoch/NewsCorp media juggernaut resulted in some very interesting (IMO) information about the interconnectedness of his empire with those connected in business dealings with Michael Jackson.  Am I advocating conspiracy theories here? No. But I do believe in the old adage: “follow the money“.

Doing so usually results in some very interesting “beneath the radar” manipulations or at least connections that people are otherwise unaware of.

Draw your own conclusions.

Fox News is owned by NewsCorp, which in turn has Rupert Murdoch and Kingdom Group (Prince AL Waleed Bin Talal Al Saud) as shareholders.

Murdoch owns tabloids ‘The Sun‘, ‘News of the World‘ and the ‘The Times‘. Also Fox, Sky and ITV were the creators of  the ‘Living with Michael Jackson‘  hit piece and were Martin Bashir’s former employer.

Prince AL Waleed Bin Talal Al Saud was in parnership with Michael Jackson. The company was called Kingdom Entertainment which went into business with Sony. AL Waheed’s media consultant Tarek Ben Ammar became Jackson’s business manager and HIStory Tour manager.

AL Waleed also has shares in Disney and they were planning a theme park based on Peter Pan’s Neverland.

Here is the theme park they planned:

This bit is really interesting:

Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Al Saud (Kingdom Group) became involved in Fairmont hotels and formed a partnership in 2006 with Colony Capital.

Now this - MJ Memorial Complex May Include Golf Course, Neverland-like Theme Park:

http://blog.taragana.com/e/2010/01/02/mj-memorial-complex-may-include-golf-course-neverland-like-theme-park-75868/

Speaking of golf courses, Colony Capital and Sunrise also merged. Who owns Sycamore Valley Ranch? Sycamore Valley Ranch (aka Neverland) is now owned by a partnership between Colony Capital and The Estate of Michael Jackson (formerly Michael Jackson).

Years of media abuse and 1993 extortionist allegations ->
Martin Bashir’s hit piece portraying Michael as a pedophile ->
2003-2005 extortionists allegations, legal & media crucifixion ->
Michael spiritually & financially depleted -> Neverland debt-> Fortress ->
Jermaine -> Tohme -> Colony Capital -> AEG -> Michael dead.

Fortress Investment Group – a hedge fund – bought some of Michael’s loans from Bank of America after he failed to make some payments. In December 2005, Fortress was ready to foreclose on the Neverland property. A restructuring of his finances with CitiGroup failed, and in 2008, in swooped Colony Capital to buy Michael’s loans from Fortess, avoiding an auction. It was Thomas Barrack, CEO of Colony Capital, who hooked Michel Jackson up with AEG for the O2 shows while Tohme Tohme as his manager at the time, signed the deal. And it was Jermaine, Michael’s brother, who contacted Tohme to help Michael save Neverland in 2008. Tohme was working with Colony Capital and enlisted Thomas Barrack of Colony to help save the ranch. They were initially reluctant until they figured they could profit off the deal if they could manipulate Michael into touring and performing again:

His backers envision the shows at AEG’s O2 as an audition for a career rebirth that could ultimately encompass a three-year world tour, a new album, movies, a Graceland-like museum, musical revues in Las Vegas and Macau, and even a “Thriller” casino. Such a rebound could wipe out Jackson’s massive debt.

…he (Barrack) was drawn to the deal. He owns a ranch five miles from Neverland, and his sons were among local children Jackson invited over for field days at the ranch. The financier retains close ties to the developer who built Neverland and is friendly with Wesley Edens, the chairman of the property’s debt-holder, Fortress Investment Group.

With the auction of Jackson’s home and possessions just days away, Barrack made the singer a proposition.

“I sat down with him and said, ‘Look . . . we can buy the note and restructure your financial empire,’ ” Barrack said. But, he told him, “what you need is a new caretaker. A new podium. A new engine.”

Tohme, who acted as Jackson’s manager until recently, recalled the urgency of the situation. “If he didn’t move fast, he would have lost the ranch,” Tohme said. “That would have been humiliating for Michael.”

Jackson and Barrack reached an agreement within seven days. Colony paid $22.5 million and Neverland averted foreclosure.

After buying Neverland, Barrack called his friend Anschutz (AEG). Barrack said the prospect of helping Jackson, given his recent criminal case, gave Anschutz, a devout Christian, pause. (Anschutz declined to be interviewed.)

Barrack had spent significant time with Jackson and praised him as “a genius” and devoted father. Ultimately, Anschutz agreed to put Jackson in touch with Randy Phillips, the CEO of his concert subsidiary.

Phillips had his eye on Jackson for some time. In 2007, Phillips approached the singer with a deal for a comeback, but Jackson, who was working with different advisors, turned him down. “He wasn’t ready,” Phillips recalled.

Why did the AEG O2 deal go from ten to 50 shows overnight? Greed. My own suspicion is that 10 shows plus other surrounding deals related to the tour would have paid off Michael’s debt. But when AEG found out tickets were selling like crazy they just kept adding shows and adding shows, unbeknownst to Michael. What may have started with an idea for Michael to pay off his debts to various entities, ended up with those same entities drooling over the money they’d make and blinded by dollar signs in their eyes. Blind to the fact that Michael would not be able to perform 50 grueling 2-hour shows at age 50 and not having been on a stage performing in over a decade. In other words, they saw a way to not only ‘help‘ Michael pay off his debts, but also a way for them to profit very nicely in the deal, too. And if he died trying? Well, he’s worth more dead than alive anyway. To these entities, it’s probably just collateral damage. They knew they’d get their money either way. Michael never wanted to tour or perform again and had said so on numerous previous occasions, stating that it would kill him. Thus, it seems to me, and is apparent judging by the above quotes, that Michael was manipulated into those shows because of his vulnerable financial condition and by those who stood to make money off of him.

The Jackson Family Trust

Now, the recently and disrespectfully released trust details apparently state that the trustees of  the ‘Michael Jackson Family Trust‘ can at their leisure, lease or sell rights to oil, gas, and minerals beneath Neverland/Sycamore Valley Ranch and I’m reading these natural resources may be significant, but I do not know that. It’s just something worth mentioning.

Apparently, that trust also states that the trustees may sell off any estate assets that are not profitable or not making money for the estate. It is suspected by some fans that at first opportunity, Michael’s share of the $ony/ATV catalog will be labeled ‘not profitable‘ and then offered up for sale – likely to $ony as preferred buyer.  That seems unlikely though.

More likely, $ony will exercise its option to take over the catalog at its first opportunity that it can do so without arousing a lot of suspicion and anger among the very Michael Jackson fans whose money they need in order to profit from Michael’s name and legacy of music posthumously. $ony is, after all, the one entity that stands to profit most from his murder. It is also suspected by many fans that this is why Michael was murdered. In a word: money. Billions of dollars worth if you count the catalog(s).  Michael was known to be worth more dead than alive. I’m sure that fact didn’t escape $ony, nor did it escape a few other entities.

About Trusts: Trusts are a responsible way to leave your family and children a protected inheritance and are usually structured such that the money in the trust and/or control of the trust or estate is not granted until the children are of a mature age range (20s – 40s or thereabouts), nor is the money or control granted all at once. The way in which the ‘Michael Jackson Family Trust‘ is structured is not at all unusual in this regard regardless of what tabloids say.

What is unusual is that music industry lawyers with a known cozy relationship with $ony are named as executors and trustees.  A probate judge interestingly enough saw no conflict of interest in this arrangement. These music industry lawyers are attached to Michael’s estate for its most profitable lifetime, by being named executors and trustees of the will and the trust, respectively.  They get 10% of all profits made by that estate right off the top.

Add that to the fact that Branca was conveniently re-hired by someone just weeks before Michael’s death, that the old 2002 will was conveniently produced by Branca himself after Michael’s death (what was he doing with that?), that the will was signed in LA on a day that Michael was in New York City, and that the children’s names are incorrect on the will.  Given all this, the amount of suspicion about ethics and motive of this entire setup increases, at least for me.

Another advantage of trusts: unlike wills, they are usually private. Unless some self-serving inside maggot sells the details to the tabloids for a nice and tidy sum, like someone did with Michael Jackson’s, evidently.  I won’t link to any tabloid articles referencing the trust here because I hate tabloids and out of respect for Michael. This information should have NEVER been publicized under any circumstances.

$ony/ATV again

John Branca has previously insisted that the $ony/ATV catalog is not for sale. However, like kudzu, and never ones to waste time moving in to grab the spoils of their kill so-to-speak, Colony Capital keeps cropping up everywhere – and here they are again. Apparently they along with other investors, had inquired about buying the catalog already in July 2009 – only weeks after Michael’s death. On the other hand, I’m told those loans using the catalog as collateral are due to be payed off or refinanced this Fall. What will Branca do in this case?  We’ll see. Thus far, he has been quite generous with $ony, having given them the ‘This is It‘ film footage even though there were higher bidders, and signing that sweetheart $250 million deal with the label that Michael himself likely would never have agreed to. $ony has been chomping at the bit to get their grimy hands on that catalog, having manipulated Michael for years over it, and having apparently manipulated his contracts after 2002 so that he could not leave the label while owning half of it.

Wondering why Michael released albums on the $ony label after protesting their mistreatment of him and then claiming he was a ‘free agent‘ in 2002?  That’s why. It’s nothing to do with having ‘kissed and made up‘ with the label. Quite the contrary.  They manipulated his contracts I’m told, so he could not leave the label. Because of the way Sony treated him, it is my opinion that Michael himself would never have signed any $250 million deal with the label such as Branca recently did.

Here’s a relevant quote that we all ought to be aware of and concerned about regarding $ony and Michael’s half of the $ony/ATV catalog. I’ve posted this on other pieces here but it’s worth a repeat. This was released, interestingly enough, on August 19, 2009 at SonyATV.com:

Despite media reports of investor interest in Jackson’s half of Sony/ATV, Sony Corp. remains in the driver’s seat. When a cash-strapped Jackson refinanced his debt with the Fortress Investment Group in 2007, Sony Corp. helped facilitate the deal and in return secured the right to purchase half of his share in Sony/ATV at a predetermined price; it also became managing partner of the publishing company, giving it operational control. Sony also obtained the right to match any future offers on Jackson’s remaining 25% stake. Separately, sources say that Sony/ATV also gets a first look at purchasing Jackson’s own Mijac catalog upon the expiration of its administration deal with Warner/Chappel.

Notice their interesting choice of words above, that they “helped facilitate the deal“. Here is a quote from another article on April 13, 2006, that gives a better idea of what $ony’s true motive was:  getting and maintaining control of that catalog. To summarize, $ony inserted themselves into Michael’s finances when he was at his most vulnerable in order to gain and retain control of that catalog. That’s all they cared about:

Sony has a longstanding interest in keeping Mr. Jackson solvent. If Fortress had moved to foreclose on Mr. Jackson, he might have been forced into bankruptcy protection, where his stake in the publishing company could be put up for auction.

In negotiating the deal, Sony seeks to avoid the prospect that another bidder could gain ownership of the stake, which the company has long hoped to control.

Justice in Michael’s Murder?  Forgetabouttit.

If you’re expecting justice in Michael’s murder, think again.  It seems unlikely given the known corruption of justice officials in LA and the flow of money to the relevant candidates’ coffers from those involved. AEG and John Branca give copius amounts of money to both AG Jerry Brown and DA Steven Cooley’s campaigns in California. Politicians can be bought and as a matter of fact, they usually are. District Attorneys and Attorneys General are one of the most corrupt  kind of political characters usually, simply because they are  a combination of both lawyers and politicians.  They can ignore, misinterpret, double-speak, manipulate, swerve around and beneath any law there is, and protect the worst criminals, while persecuting the most innocent among us – and they usually do. AEG in particular has business hooks well inserted into LA business and politics and their name will be protected at all costs, no matter what they did that may have contributed to Michael’s early demise. Same with $ony, Colony Capital, the various corprat-owned media giants one of which is NewsCorp, or anyone else who helped send Michael to his early grave.

And Conrad Murray above all, who is being treated more like Michael should have been treated than like the negligent criminal Murray certainly is. In fact Colony Capital Investors II, L.P. owns Red Rock Country Club where Conrad Murray’s house is. That house was in foreclosure,  but oddly he still has it and no proceedings are known to have been initiated against him on this issue. One has to wonder what makes him so special.

    From the moment I saw Tohme interviewed on TV last year, my skin crawled and I knew, I just knew something was not right about the manner in which Michael died, but I didn’t know what that was. Thanks to you Seven and all the other hard working Soldiers in Michael’s Army, I now know.
    Whilst the thought of what Michael went through breaks my heart, right now I am more mad and angry than anything else and determined. Oh yeah, DETERMINED, to see that Justice truly does prevail for Michael.
    God Bless you Seven and everyone who is fighting for Michael.

    I love and miss you Michael. Every minute of every day XX

  2. Seven says:

    Karin, I don’t know anything about Leonard Rowe’s book. Thank you for the information. I’d be interested to hear your feedback if you read it.

    This video, created just yesterday, should add additional depth to the subject of this world Michael Jackson lived in (please excuse the language in one part):

  3. Karin says:

    Seven, have you seen that Leonard Rowe is bringing a new book out. I am going to buy it as I think it will be an interesting read. Here is the link to the website:

  4. BG says:

    Hi Seven. All cementing plans and deals made over Michael’s assets and scrambling for what they get – vultures the lot of them. They’d stop at nothing to get what they want, and they didn’t. RIP MJ.

    PS: I really love the pic of Michael with the magnifying glass at the top.

  5. Isabelle says:

    I’m very sad to say that I’ve seen this coming… the catalog Michael never wanted to sell going back to Sony? no surprise there, it was their plan all along…
    as for Murray, there has to be some reasons why he still has his licence!!!
    Will there ever be a day when Michael isn’t victim of injustices???? like he said it so well “the whole system sucks” !!!

  6. LJ says:

    Wow! This is so messed up. I am having feelings of anger, helplessness, and plain old – I had a feeling this was what was happening. Thank you for posting this important information. Justice for Michael will mean revealing of the deception and corruption in a big way. Guarantee this won’t happen but now WE know. I do believe all this talk about his addiction is a ruse to throw us off the truth. Man it does make you want to “scream”.

  7. Rosa Alers says:

    Excellent research!!! You have succeeded in explaining all the tangles of corporations and as intertwined with each other and then we can read the map clearly.
    Seven Thanks for all your work and your willingness to share.
    I will include this link on my page. It’s important to share this information.
    Thanks again and blessings

  8. Michelle says:

    Hi Seven,

    Wow, thank you for bringing these points to light. The suffering Michael endured in his life makes me totally sick. How can society have the nerve to call Michael “unusual” (among other rude and nasty things) when the allegedly “normal” people are doing all of this in the backround? What kind of twisted world do we live in?

    You know what I would personally love to see happen? All of MJ’s fans get together with Tom Mesereau and hire him to make a class action suit against all those who had a hand in this monstrosity! Each fan would take part in supporting the finances of the case. It would be extremely expensive, but divided among a million fans, would be very cost effective and affordable. I would love to bring these creeps down the way Michael was brought down–humiliation and all. After all, what’s good for the goose, is also good for the gander!

    Although we may never see true justice in the American legal system in this case, I have perfect faith that true justice will be served in God’s courtroom one day! To those who took part in spilling Michael’s “Blood on the Dancefloor” know this: You may have been able to hide many things from the public eye, but God sees everything.

  9. Kathleen J says:

    Seven, Just some info to pass along. Aphrodite Jones, True Crime on the ID channel is showing her piece on the Michael conspiracy again tonight.

  10. Seven says:

    Dialdancer,

    Thanks for the great info.

    I did in fact mention ‘News of the World’ as one of Murdoch’s holdings. 4th or 5th paragraph or thereabouts.

  11. Karin says:

    Thanks Seven for all the data and facts. When I read News of the World last weekend claiming the children were worth $33 mill each already and Katherine much more, I immediately thought the timing was just too convenient. How could the estate possibly have extinguished all of Michael’s debts so quickly without liquidiating his assets? I believe the story and the trust doc was just plain self serving. Questions have been raised by Michael’s admirers and letters written about the will and Branca and McClain. Of course mainstream media haven’t bothered to get behind us to expose the truth.

    Branca and McClain are undoubtedly trying to get good press. How could Michael’s share in the catalogue possibly ever be considered unprofitable? It’s worth a small fortune. There’s no way they can justify selling it on unprofitability but they may come up with another excuse. I would love to know the real facts of what’s going on with the catalogue and Mijac. Wish we were privy to this information.

  12. L. Somers says:

    It looks like a huge can of worms, Seven. Great effort!

    Just checking, but I got the impression from Lynton Guest’s book that the catalogue was lost to Sony some time back?

    Have you considered approaching Thomas Mesereau to ascertain if there is a problem with the will or a conflict of interest regarding Branca’s executor role? I wonder what it would cost to get him to do that? He’s about the only attorney that seems trustworthy in L.A at this stage.

    Clicking on the ‘shareholders’ link and seeing the photo of Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Al Saud in what appears to be a customised jumbo is frightening.

    I wish I could read Arabic to know if the sign above his ‘throne’ says ‘Look At Me, I’m Really, Really Rich And So Very Important.’

  13. Jane says:

    Thank you for your research and hard work.

    I was not a hard core fan of MJ but I loved his music and he was a musical genious. When he passed away, it effected me more than I would imagine. Circumstances around his death did not add up.

    It sickens me what MJ went through as a child and as an adult.

    I don’t see how Michael stayed sane and did not go insane dealing with such adversity.

    He was getting hit from all sides – his personal life, the music industry, the media, his father, brothers, sister, friends, enemies, etc.

    God Bless him and others who have been snared and are currently entagled in this web of deceit and can’t get out!

    As Michael said, “PEOPLE WILL DO ANYTHING FOR MONEY!” -lie, steal, even sell their souls!

    I pray to God that MJ’s name will be cleared and those who conspired against him and caused him such pain and turmoil will be held accountable from our Heavenly Father.

    Bonnie Vent has a website that is helping to clear his name too.

  14. Seven says:

    TLS – I don’t know re: Beatles catalog. But then, I didn’t grok how any judge could fail to see the blatant conflict of interest with Branca running that estate, either. But as I say, it’s a suspicion only. With Branca’s ‘soft spot’ for giving everything to $ony, with what I saw on the $ony/ATV site itself about having first dibs on MJ’s half of the catalog guaranteed, and with those loans (supposedly) due in the Fall – who knows what he’ll do?

  15. Ali says:

    Seven, Thanks for presenting it all so succinctly. The FBI need this information. and if they won’t do anything, it needs to be put out there publicly somehow. We can’t let them get away with it. I’m going to print this page off and send it to David Cameron, UK Prime Minister and beg him to speak to Obama about it. Is there something else we can do?

  16. TLS says:

    PS: and there’s NO mainstream coverage of the legal aspect of what Branca’s doing. They only check in when there’s a sensational spin to put on it, usually to the detriment of the children. It’s disgraceful.

  17. TLS says:

    Seven–

    The estate (Branca) can sell unprofitable portions of its holdings, but how in the world could he ever make the case that the Beatles catalog isn’t profitable? I know judges are bought and sold like politicians, but surely there’s a way to challenge something like this legally. Yet so far, all we’ve seen is capitulation with whatever Branca decides. Some of the decisions seem prudent, but his own compensation seems out of proportion to the job. And if he sells the catalog, I don’t see how anyone, even a bought-and-paid-for judge, could swallow it.

  18. Gavin Saunders says:

    I have at several levels and times in my life experienced how the ‘business’ world works and how thoroughly (i.e. death) you are taken down if you are of Michael’s ilk and don’t have the constitution of the Murdochs, Anschutzes, Sony CEO’s (insert Japanese executives names here), etc.
    You can move in similar circles to the big players (all those charity dinners, etc. are often vehicles to rub shoulders and help set up deals) and they only show you a side to themselves that is favourable and you never think they could stoop to these low levels.
    Mike would have been even more vulnerable because his immediate entourage was pretty unsophisticated and Mike’s mind was geared mainly toward creativity and helping others; a characteristic that would have been a serious liability when his trust, loyalty and belief in the fundamental goodness of others was so deeply betrayed at every turn.
    The Dimonds, Bashirs, Brancas (in his case current events appear to support this) and Sneddons of this world try so hard to ingratiate themselves to the real players (probably aspiring to their wealth and power at the same time) and dismiss a Michael as collateral damage to that end.
    The money all these entities splash around is so tainted that I get tremendous satisfaction in believing that it will only bring misery and sorrow to those greedy or ignorant/oblivious enough to accept it.
    Besides, they and their loved ones will need to disengage from the world on any real level (a sad and soulless prison in itself) because otherwise they’d have to venture out into a world of unnecessary suffering they’ve helped create.

  19. june says:

    All this is enlightening but at the same time sickening. Seven, you really have connected the unfortunate dots that led to the final horrifying conclusion. If Michael couldn’t trust DiLeo after all those years together, then whom could he trust? I watched your piece on Yoshiaki from the Bad Tour with the videos and there’s DiLeo 22 years ago backstage at MJ’s concert. MJ looked like such a child back then; hard to believe he was nearly 30 at the time. Such enthusiasm and passion for his craft.

    About the contributions by Anschutz, Ziffren to Cooley and Brown, I read this same information a month or so ago concerning one Dr. Arnold Klein who made contributions to (I believe) Cooley’s re-election campaign. I recall thinking the timing was suspect. What was that contribution for? To keep his name off a witness list? All those you have mentioned, plus Klein, plus Sneddon, plus Bashir; hard to conceive how Michael survived as long as he did; everyone wanted a piece of the comet that was Michael.

  20. Justice4MJJ says:

    FURTHER proof how POWERFUL AND interconnected MJ’s enemies were and still are!! Are you freakin KIDDING ME? The one passage that says: Anschtuz “gave pause over MJ’s criminal case”?! THEY’RE THE One’s WHO PLOTTED THE SETUP BS CASE+KILLED HIM! He’s trying to act like he had to ponder this, when they planned & plotted the whole time! The one person who CAN give MJ justice, vindication & reign judgment down on ALL those involved, is God! So, along with NOT supporting ANY of his killers http://mjfansboycottsony.weebly.com/ , spreading awareness of the truth of MJ’s life & death, we must all, PRAY PRAY PRAY!!!

  21. Dialdancer says:

    Seven thank you. Here is something to add to the Murdock mix. The leak of the Trust started at a British Sunday publication called the Britain’s News of the World has been the forerunner in breaking Michael related stories. I have become familiar with the Rag Brigade and this “paper” is just recently been publishing and supplying stories to other Mainstream Tabloids. News of the World is owned by Rupert Murdock.

    Wikipedia:
    The News of the World is a British tabloid newspaper published every Sunday. It is published by News Group Newspapers of News International, itself a subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, and can be considered the Sunday sister paper of The Sun. With sales averaging 2,904,566 copies per week in March 2010, [1] the News of the World is the second-largest selling English-language newspaper in the world [2]

  22. Kathleen J says:

    How can these people sleep knowing that millions of people are suffering from their greed? I don’t mean the sadness we all feel. I keep thinking of his children growing up without him and all the children in the world that won’t have the opportunity to benefit from MJ’s love and generosity. I am still grieving his loss and this just makes me sick to my stomach. I wish Michael had stayed in Ireland. The people there respected him and gave him the privacy he needed. I totally believe in the conspiracy theory. So many more to blame than just Dr. Murray!!

  23. smitm says:

    Wow! Thank you Seven for laying it out like this! You can really follow the $$$$$. 🙁

  24. dre says:

    Right On Seven!

  25. Inga says:

    Seven, thank you for putting together this connections.It is horrible and disgusting what happened to Michael!
    All these people around him who always thought in material ways and took advantage of him.
    I remember one sentence Karen Faye said: “After Michaels death I wondered how all the sharks where in their
    places IMMEDIATELY!”
    No peace till justice…

  26. Susan says:

    Hi Seven;

    Reading that piece makes my stomach flip.

    In regards to the catalogue, I wonder if Michael would have ever discussed any of his concerns with his son Prince. I know he’s quite young, but maybe Michael expressed to Prince the value of this particular asset. If that was the case, do you think Prince would have a voice in what happens to this asset or is he and Paris and Blanket at the mercy of the Executors/Trustees. I wish they had someone like Tom Mesereau to represent them and fight for them. It seems that in death as in life, Michael is going to get screwed over again.

    And you’re right, maggots -filthy maggots, selling this private document for all the world to dissect and pass judgement on Michael once again.

  27. Abby says:

    Thank you for the article, and for this site. I love it!

    At first I didn’t believe in the whole conspiracy theory idea, but now I do. It is all very sad and is one big mess that just keeps getting more and more interesting.

    I’ve seen bits and pieces of what you mentioned above….thank you for putting it all together in one article.

    I posted some Youtube videos below. You may have already seen them all, but thought I’d pass them along. I fisrt started believing in a conspiracy when I watched these videos. Sorry there are so many. They were sent to me on the MJ Tribute Portrait Site.

    I hope everyone involved is brought to justice, but I have a hard time believing that it will happen. 🙁

    What an investigative piece this is!!! Thank you for all the your hard work!!♥

  29. sonja says:

    You have hit the nail on the head Seven!!!

    It was obvious to me that Michael was surounded by , followed by , watched by , smothered by some of the shiftiest , nastiest, greediest ,, scum of the earth criminals ever known to mankind and if you knew nothing about business all you had to do is open your eyes .
    All the money he generated,,,,, and to hear that he was broke .??,,,,,Really ,,,,,,so how could that happen . Criminals thats how . And theyre good at their theivery in fact they are masters and allways work in groups and scatter like the filthy roaches once the light come on . Maybe Michael was about to turn the lights on .
