For we walk by faith, not by sight

For we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7)

 

If there is one thing I learned during the past 30 months, it is that faith is a very powerful thing and should neither be underestimated, nor ridiculed. This blog is all about faith and the impact it can have on someone’s life; including that of the person this entire website is dedicated to.

I wasn’t sure if I should write this blog, because I know it will again fuel suspicions about my intentions, and I will probably again be a subject of ridicule for some, but then I thought: who cares? It never stopped me from writing about any of the subjects I wrote in the past, why would it stop me now?

The reason I write this blog is because I want to explain to people why I think the religious topics on the forum DO matter for the sake of investigating this hoax. As most of you know, I created the new forum on www.michaelsarmyoflove.com to discuss subjects not directly related to the hoax, but that doesn’t mean in any way that I do not allow religious topics at all on the forum, quite the contrary because I think we might miss some important things by ignoring it.

I have no intention whatsoever to tell people what they should believe, nor do I want to offend anyone. I respect everyone’s beliefs and I would be the last person to judge people who do not believe at all, because when this hoax started I was agnostic myself and there was a time I was a hardcore atheist. In both cases I thought the Bible was written by evil men who wanted to control the masses, I thought Jesus never really existed and I thought the Catholic Church was one big evil scam that had too much power and too much money. I changed my opinion on 2 of the above; please allow me to explain why.

 

When I first learned of the possibility of the hoax, just a few days after Michael’s ‘death’, my first thought was that it was purely a PR stunt. As most of you know, I have never been a fan and knew close to zero about Michael. I did know he was a genius, and I did like his music, but I never understood what all the fuss was about. A huge PR stunt in the form of a giant real-life movie sounded reasonable to me and I was confident that he would reveal himself in the movie, or shortly before or after. But October 28 came and went, and no MJ… I was a little disappointed and I didn’t really understand why BAM didn’t happen. At that time I had lengthy chats with someone I will call ‘Bob’ for now (some of you might already have heard about him after last year’s forum drama) and Bob was a great help during the time we wrote the mind control and trial blogs. Both subjects that were pretty depressing and heavy and he always knew how to put a smile back on our faces. I know it was implied back then that he made us write about certain subjects and that he probably had an evil agenda or that the blogs were all his information but that’s a lie. Bob told us to look in certain directions and said we shouldn’t simply dismiss subjects like we did in the beginning. All he did was make us read the stuff for ourselves before judging. He opened my eyes and made me see the bigger picture of the hoax. Without him, I would probably have quit hoaxing shortly after This Is It premiered. Was he an insider? Yes, I absolutely believe he was. Whether Michael or someone close to him I do not know, but he showed me enough to convince me, and I am not easily convinced as you all will know by now. Besides that, he never contacted me; I decided to contact him when I thought he had some interesting information. Is it possible he was just another believer who liked to troll around? Sure, anything is possible, but in that case he would have been one lucky troll to say the least but still, everything that validated him could have been a coincidence if you believe in coincidences. That is where faith comes in. Faith doesn’t mean just believing everything you are being told or shown, faith always has a solid foundation. I had a solid foundation for my faith in Bob, and still have, even though I have never seen him in my life and cannot say for sure who he was. I haven’t spoken to him in nearly two years now, and I hope that if he reads this, he will contact me so that I can thank him for all the hours he has spent with us, which I know must have been frustrating at times.

Anyway, my faith in Bob renewed my faith in the hoax and in Michael, because I now saw that this was most likely not just for PR reasons, but Michael had bigger and more serious reasons for this, besides the entertaining part which of course is also a reason, he’s an entertainer after all. At the beginning the illuminati subjects weren’t received very positively, the reactions we got were Dave Dave reactions to the power ten and some people viciously attacked us for it and even sent death threats. That is when you know you have hit a nerve and that you are probably on the right track, whether or not every piece of information was accurate. Researching the illuminati, mind control and the trial made me look at the world we live in through different glasses. I don’t know why I rejected it so much early in the hoax, maybe because I thought ‘illuminati’ sounded too much like a Dan Brown thriller, and not a real life thriller. I am glad I changed my attitude and researched it for myself, because so many things in the hoax (and real life!) made so much more sense. But again time went by and no BAM. It turned very quiet at times and it seemed like the hoax had died. I spent those weeks and sometimes even months reading up on NWO subjects, the hoax and Michael’s life. I knew he is a religious man, but while researching his life I understood that he has way more religious than I thought. At first I couldn’t understand how a man who is so intelligent could even consider the Bible to be true, most definitely not because I thought it was written by the kind of occult groups he was so against. I decided to ignore the religious aspects of the hoax, until a few months had passed and I was still stuck on my hoax investigation. Every time I read something, something religious came up and I had zero knowledge of the Bible (yet still condemning it, talking about prejudice…). Even if I would have tried to read up on the Bible, I am sure I wouldn’t have understood a single thing because the OT is usually where you start reading, and I had a hard time even struggling through the first chapter, even more because I wanted to read it in English and not in my own language. I wanted to understand what Michael’s beliefs are, and why this mysterious Bible played such a big role in his life even though I was not religious myself at all, but I had no idea how. I did feel it was important to research, because I understood that if God played such a big role in his life, He definitely must have a big role in the hoax as well.

As if God had heard me, I met someone that turned my world upside down. I don’t think there is anyone walking this earth having more understanding of the Bible than he has. I know that seems like a big statement to make, but if you can explain even the most advanced Bible subjects in a way it even makes huge sense to me, then you are extremely gifted. After a few weeks of emailing, I again had the same question popping up because just like Michael, my Bible teacher is very intelligent and is against secret societies, NWO etc. How could he have so much faith in a book written by man and in an invisible man in the clouds? But then I realized that I was having the exact same kind of faith in Michael and in this hoax. Believing Michael hoaxed his death and will BAM one day, is absolutely no different from the Christian faith that Jesus will BAM in the near future. Christians have the Bible as their source; hoaxers have the media and the forum. Christians did the math on the ‘coincidences’ in the Bible and realized that there were way too many to be a coincidence; us hoaxers did the same with everything we have read and heard. Christians have faith in Jesus’ ‘BAM’ because of the evidence collected in the Bible; we hoaxers have faith in MJ’s BAM because of the evidence collected on the forum. The only differences are that Michael never died and that he isn’t God. Michael will have to BAM before he really dies; Jesus has eternity for His BAM. And I know that sounds crazy and impossible for an atheist, but after studying Bible prophecies and seeing the clear fulfillments of them to the exact year, then all I can say now is that there are things that go beyond our imagination and that we simply cannot wrap our pea-brains (of which we only use 10 to 15%) around certain things. Some people will never open up to the possibility, some might start studying the Bible themselves one day and see it, some people need a sign. I needed a sign and I got more than one. The first being my Bible teacher showing up, who is the reason why I have been pretty much absent from the forum the past couple of months. I wonder if there is anyone who has ever received so much Bible information in such a short period of time as I have. It fried my brain many times, but made me see that the foundation for the Christian faith is actually much stronger than the foundation for the faith we all have in Michael and the hoax. Like I said, I have no intention to convert anyone but if you are atheistic or agnostic, and you believe with 100% certainty, like me, that Michael is alive and will be back, then just consider studying the Bible. It won’t hurt you.

Anyway, of course I haven’t studied the complete Bible yet, that would be impossible in only a few months, but I mostly studied the EOW (end of world) subject. And even though my Bible teacher has some knowledge of the Jehova’s Witnesses beliefs about that, he isn’t one and never has been one and therefore is not able to answer all my questions. But God has a solution for everything and in the very beginning of my study my doorbell rang one morning. A Jehova’s Witness was at my door for the first time in years. Normally some of my JW family members go door to door and they avoid me because we are not really on good terms anymore, since they never hid their disgust for me because I would not be converted to their religion. The guy was amazed I let him in, since he has had doors slammed in his face for more than a year. I told him from the start that I was interested in his story, but that he would not be able to convert me. After we talked for about an hour or so, he said he had to go and I gave him some questions, asking him to study it and come back with answers. I never expected him to really return after I was so clear that he would not be able to convert me, but he did. The second visit we talked about the questions I gave him, but this time I was prepared and I was able to make him scratch his head more than once. Coincidentally, he had been studying the book of Daniel recently, just as I had been doing in between our meetings. He tried to distract me from the subject I asked about by trying to baffle me with his study on Daniel, but he ended up scratching his head even more when I started challenging him on that. I might have told him one or two things that triggered his interest, because believe it or not: he will be back a third time next week for another study. When I wanted to understand the Bible, I coincidentally met my Bible teacher and when I wanted to learn more about the JW beliefs, a JW turned up on my doorstep. Coincidence or another sign? I guess it depends on how strong the foundation of your faith is. There have been more signs like this, but I will keep it short.

 

On with the hoax and the religious aspects of it. Many people have rejected TS and TIAI because of the redirects to Bible passages or discussion about the EOW subject. Although I can understand why people want to dismiss the religious aspects, I would like to point out that this hoax was set up by Michael, who does believe in God, and in the Bible. Therefore, if we truly want to understand all the aspects of the hoax, we should not ignore that and research it. Even if you don’t feel like researching it, let others at least research it and just read their posts. Do not dismiss things solely for the reason that you don’t believe in God or in the Bible. Michael believes in God and in the Bible and that should be enough. I remember how my post about Dave Dave being Michael in disguise was attacked and ridiculed back at MJHD.com; now Dave Dave is accepted as a part of the hoax even by those who still don’t believe it was Michael. I remember how the illuminati and mind control blogs were viciously attacked and ridiculed; now this subject is widely discussed and accepted on the forum. History repeats itself and although most of the people who are still hanging on and are keeping the faith are the ones with manners and can at least complain with respect most of the time, again a subject of which I believe is important to at least investigate, is being ridiculed and dismissed. If you believe Michael hoaxed his death and if you believe he is trying to expose the evil side of our world, you should at least accept that Michael’s belief in God has influence on the hoax. And not just his belief in God, because believing in God and in the Bible automatically means a belief in the devil. Knowledge of the Bible is also of use when you believe in the illuminati, the powers that be, the men behind the curtain or whatever you want to call it to make it sound less like a Dan Brown book, simply because it is all linked. ‘Antichrist’ and ‘Satanism’ are not used that much in articles and books about the subject for nothing. You don’t have to believe in God or Satan yourself, all you have to understand is that those who pull the strings do and that alone should be enough to educate yourself to make sure you will not be deceived.

 

Here are some quotes on Michael and his beliefs. I do not know which beliefs he still shares with JW’s, but my guess is that there are still a lot of them. But his interest in other religions clearly shows that he was ever searching, looking for answers.

From Jermaine’s book ‘You are not alone’ about Michael’s faith:

Michael always said he was raised biblically. In fact, he was the only one of the Jackson 5 to be baptised. Michael prayed, I did not. Michael learned the Bible, I did not. I didn’t appreciate that Jehovah was the ultimate Father because we were made to believe that He can disown you if you don’t behave. The threat of abandonment – of being ‘de-fellowshipped’ – was ever-present. Michael would learn all about Jehovah’s threat of banishment in later life but in his childhood, the threat of it was a whip in itself.

Michael lifts his eyes from the floor. He looks the saddest I have ever seen him, but I can tell he just wants to talk. Up until now, he has rarely released his emotions in front of us. He has been controlled and resolute, speaking about his faith, how he trusts the judge of God, not the judge in a robe. But his controlled demeanour is now undone, no doubt triggered by yesterday’s testimony, and compounded by the frustration of this back injury.

Michael was dedicated to walking the higher path. I know that he confided in God and felt He was a presence you could never fool or hide anything from. In later life, he once told me he still felt a twinge of guilt for celebrating Christmas and birthdays.

Michael talked a lot about God with Rose. He was the only brother still attending the local Kingdom Hall and doing field service with Mother, La Toya and Janet, tour dates permitting. But different faiths and others’ relationship with God fascinated him, and Rose was Jewish.

For example, ‘I Just Can’t Stop Loving You’ came to him one morning when he was in bed. He grabbed his tape recorder and laid it down there and then. These flashes of inspiration were ‘God’s work,’ he said.

In the end, after allowing three weeks to pass, he followed his instinct and flew up. As photographer Harrison Funk tells it, he wanted to make his visit as low-profile as possible and was sneaked into the school in a detective’s car. When he arrived, he walked into an assembly of children in a large classroom and gave a passionate talk about hope, comfort and God.

Nanny Grace had already explained to me that the current security set-up wasn’t working for him and I suggested to him that he needed people who were not afraid of anyone and shared his trust in God.

People forgot that Michael’s faith in God was too strong to be swayed by any movement and the Nation was there for its
effective security, not any kind of ideology.

He left behind so many great deeds, far bigger than the superstar he was, and he did what every one of us should do: he lived his truth, undeterred by what anyone said and, forever kind, trusted God.

Mother ensured we made time for Bible study. The Old and New Testaments and the faith’s main publications, the Watchtower and Paradise Lost magazines, were always on the living-room table.

Michael always said, ‘My wife is my music and I’m married to my craft’ – and that was why he achieved greatness. But he was also a devout Jehovah’s Witness who lived his life in accordance with the Bible.

We ran to the main house and grabbed our jackets. Everyone was climbing into the convoy of vehicles. Michael, wearing his sunglasses, was already in the car. He was sitting next to Rebbie, who had the Bible in her hand: she was reading from the scriptures. As he listened, he rocked in his seat. ‘Why? Why? Why?’ he kept repeating, beating a fist into his right knee, ‘Why does it have to come to this?’ Rebbie went on reading as Randy climbed in beside her – and she continued to read all the way to court. During the previous weeks, Michael had privately attended two meetings at the local Kingdom Hall, returning to his Jehovah’s Witness roots in his darkest hour.

 

About Michael’s interest in the end of the world, also from Jermaine’s book:

I watched curtains twitching and used to count how many seconds it would be before the door was slammed in Mother’s face. Rejection didn’t faze her – she was serving Jehovah. Bless her, she’s still blazing a trail in His name in California to this day. The one lesson imprinted on our minds from our own Bible study was that we’d take a fast trip to Hell if we didn’t serve Jehovah and attend the Kingdom Hall. Our Judgement Day was Armageddon, when all evil life would be destroyed and a new world created for the chosen 144,000. Salvation hinged on our devotion to Jehovah. Just in case our young minds were not imaginative enough, the Watchtower illustrated what Armageddon would look like. I remember reading it with Michael, scanning vivid illustrations of buildings imploding and people falling into cavernous cracks in the earth, arms reaching out to be saved. The anxiety spread as we pondered the questions that would decide our fate. Do we honour Jehovah enough? Are we good enough for eternal life? Will we survive Armageddon? If we get into trouble with Joseph, does that mean we’re in trouble with Jehovah, too? ‘I want to go to Paradise!’ I said, more out of fear than enthusiasm. ‘Mother, are we going to be saved?’ asked Michael. The most important thing in life, she said, was to be good and be good to others: salvation is granted to those who keep the faith, do field service and live according to the scriptures. As an adult, Michael would later accept the Watchtower illustrations as ‘symbolism’, but as boys, it was still scary to wonder how Jehovah noticed the difference between us being good and, say, the mailman. What about the times Michael gave kids in the neighbourhood candy and I didn’t? Mother’s stock answer was the same: Don’t worry, He sees everything. And then there was the proximity of Armageddon. When was it going to happen? Next week? How long have we got? An inquisitive mind like Michael’s never could stop thinking about it. I can see him now looking up to an elder to ask some earnest question, only to be patted on the head and humoured. But witnesses seemed forever braced for the end of the world. The first Armageddon was estimated to be 1914. When that didn’t happen, it was changed to 1915 … And they’re still waiting. I distinctly remember when the Jackson family was convinced it was coming: 1963. The Russians seemed sure to bomb the US, JFK was assassinated, and then the suspected gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, was shot – an event we watched on our black-and-white TV. Our household was sure all this was a prelude to the end of the world – and we brothers had never been so keen to get to the Kingdom Hall to honour Jehovah.

 

Michael’s own words in ‘Moonwalk’:

Every one of my albums or the group’s albums has been dedicated to our mother, Katherine Jackson, since we took over our own careers and began to produce our own music. My first memories are of her holding me and singing songs like “You Are My Sunshine” and “Cotton Fields.” She sang to me and to my brothers and sisters often. Even though she had lived in Indiana for some time, my mother grew up in Alabama, and in that part of the country it was just as common for black people to be raised with country and western music on the radio as it was for them to hear spirituals in church. She likes Willie Nelson to this day. She has always had a beautiful voice and I suppose I got my singing ability from my mother and, of course, from God.

My mother knew her polio was not a curse but a test that God gave her to triumph over, and she instilled in me a love of Him that I will always have. She taught me that my talent for singing and dancing was as much God’s work as a beautiful sunset or a storm that left snow for children to play in. Despite all the time we spent rehearsing and traveling, Mom would find time to take me to the Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, usually with Rebbie and LaToya.

Ed Sullivan may have been thinking of all this when he told me, “Never forget where your talent came from, that your talent is a gift from God.” I was grateful for his kindness, but I could have told him that my mother had never let me forget. I never had polio, which is a frightening thing for a dancer to think about, but I knew God had tested me and my brothers and sisters in other ways – our large family, our tiny house, the small amount of money we had to make ends meet, even the jealous kids in the neighborhood who threw rocks at our windows while we rehearsed, yelling that we’d never make it.

I’ve always joked that I didn’t ask to sing and dance, but it’s true. When I open my mouth, music comes out. I’m honored that I have this ability. I thank God for it every day. I try to cultivate what He gave me. I feel I’m compelled to do what I do.

I had always shouldered a lot of responsibility, but it suddenly seemed that everyone wanted a piece of me. There wasn’t that much to go around, and I needed to be responsible to myself. I had to take stock of my life and figure out what people wanted from me and to whom I was going to give wholly. It was a hard thing for me to do, but I had to learn to be wary of some of the people around me. God was at the top of my list of priorities, and my mother and father and brothers and sisters followed.

 

That last quote speaks volumes about Michael’s love for and faith in God. Why wouldn’t God be a part of this hoax as well? I will stop the quotes now to keep it as short as possible, but anyone who has seen or heard speeches from him, interviews with him etc., knows how strong and present his faith is in his life. Who is anyone to boot God out of the hoax?

 

The point I want to make is that I think that we should review the hoax again with this in mind. I absolutely believe there are religious references everywhere that might give us information we have overlooked. The new Thriller clip in This Is It for example has religious references, the rosary found on the death bed, the TMZ articles with biblical references that seeingclues once blogged about to name just a few of (in my opinion) many things that might be understood better if we would just look into it more than we have, whether you are a religious person yourself or not. We are still here after more than 2.5 years because we want to know the truth. That means we should investigate every single clue Michael is giving us, including the religious ones. So please keep an open mind and if you don’t want to discuss it then that is okay, but please do not complain when others do. Michael clearly had, and in my opinion still has, an interest for Armageddon, THE ultimate battle between good and evil. Looking at the lyrics of Thriller now, I believe this is about more than just a scary movie and Thriller happens to be the main theme for the hoax.

Also, is it a coincidence that the three (possibly just two) so called informers that are discussed the most on the forum, all three seem to have a clear religious background as well? And I know some people reading this will attack me again for defending any of them, but I want to say to them: go ahead! These verses say it all:

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as [they were] from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: (2 Peter 3:3-6)

But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. (Jude 1:17,18)

It doesn’t matter whether any of them is Michael himself, all that matters is that they share the same trust in God and have Michael’s best interest at heart. Those with a solid foundation for their faith in any or all of them are not being deceived or brainwashed, they see what is obvious; they have important information to share. The foundation for my faith in those three (or two) is solid for many reasons. Back clearly verified himself with his prophetic messages years ago, TS validated himself with his posts throughout the years and I trust Front for other reasons. If you have a problem with that, then I can’t help you because as long as no one can destroy the foundation of my faith with valid arguments instead of mumbo jumbo, they will have a platform for their messages on the forum. But most of all I have faith in Michael, and in his mission. May God protect him and guide him (and tell him to BAM soon before we all go completely insane! Lol).

Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great. (Luke 6:47-49)

 

“It’s all for love”

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (1 John 4:8)

After all the things we tried to make out of the L.O.V.E., maybe it’s that simple: Michael does this for God, it’s all for God. And I am sure God has a hand in it all.

Michael wouldn’t appreciate the religious discussions on the forum? I think that assumption has no foundation at all. And to quote TS: Keep the faith, no matter what happens! We might not have seen Michael back in the flesh yet, but that should not be a problem, for we walk by faith, not by sight…

Challenging the non-believers arguments – part 1; “Michael would never do this to his kids”

April 3, 2011 63 comments

 

Most people on this website and forum believe Michael Jackson is still alive, but there are also people visiting here that say he is dead. Some do so in a polite way, some in a less polite way, but they all have the same arguments as to why Michael Jackson could never have hoaxed his death. Because it is going in circles mostly on the forum about this, I decided to resuscitate this blog and post my view on these arguments. This is only part one, more will follow whenever I have time.

 

One of the opinions that is most expressed by non-believers, is that Michael would never do this to his kids. I strongly disagree with that statement, and I will try to explain in this piece why I disagree. People are welcome to challenge my view, if they can and they are also welcome to reply to this blog and share other arguments that make you believe Michael is really dead. This is my attempt to show the non-believers why we think what we think and that we are in no way disrespecting Michael. We heard your side of the story, some of us even were on your side, now try to see this from our point of view, before accusing us of being disrespectful to Michael.

 

Let’s start with the person this is all about: Michael Jackson. Many of you know that I am not a fan, and that I never followed his life. That doesn’t mean I didn’t know and appreciate his work. I have always seen him as a fantastic artist and whenever Michael Jackson did something, it was something new, something different and often something shocking. He calls himself an innovator and a pioneer, and that is exactly what he is, and always has been when you look at his work. I’d like to start with some things coming directly from the horse’s mouth, before getting at the question if Michael would do this (hoaxing his death) to his children.

 

Michael holds a firm record with ‘Thriller’. Artists these days aren’t even trying to top that album, because they know beforehand that it’s most likely never going to happen. Not even Michael himself ever broke his own record. Does that mean he accepted that and planned some new albums that would probably do good, but never as good as Thriller, before he would retire and maybe even be ‘forgotten’ and replaced as the greatest entertainer? Or do you think he was planning something big that would shock the world? When I listen to some of his own words, I think the man had something up his sleeve for quite a while:

 

“But still, but still, I promise you; The best is yet to come!” on mark 9:21:

 

 

“My birthday wish is that you will join me in some new undertakings.” on mark 9:55:

 

 

“I’m very proud to be an entertainer and you ain’t seen nothing yet.” on mark 3:03:

 

 

Geraldo: “What’s the big plan, what’s the big picture at this stage in your life? What has been left unachieved, what would you like to do?”

Michael: “There are a lot of surprises… Film, I love film. […] It’s not so much film, but it’s innovating it and pioneering it. Taking the medium to a new place. […] And I’m having a lot of fun.” at the start:

 

 

Does this sound like another tour? Was that his big plan? It sounds more like a big movie project to me and certainly not another tour. Wouldn’t a real life Thriller, an interactive movie project with the whole world as a stage and an opportunity to expose the lies of the media be a movie project that Michael Jackson could have planned?

 

Okay, back to the children. One of the main arguments non-believers give for Michael being dead, is that he would never do this to his children. Fair enough, but that would mean that the original story (Michael died because of a Propofol overdose) is true, whether he was intentionally killed or not, because this is what the autopsy report says. So let’s have a closer look at the official story and draw some conclusions out of it.

 

According to reports, Michael was addicted to painkillers and anesthetics. He had trouble sleeping and shopped for RX, even begged doctors and nurses for propofol. On June 25, 2009, he came home after rehearsal and couldn’t sleep. Allegedly, doctor Murray gave him multiple kinds of drugs, before injecting the fatal dose of propofol in the morning.

Let’s assume this story is true. Whether Murray intentionally injected Michael with a fatal dose or not, we do know that Michael let Murray inject him voluntarily, since there was no sign of struggle on the crime scene, and no signs of struggle found on the body according to the autopsy report and Michael even had an IV. So either way, Michael was irresponsibly taking dangerous amounts and combinations of drugs, just to get some sleep. It means that if this were true, there are 2 scenarios for what happened that day:

 

1. Michael indeed was a hardcore drug addict, taking dangerous combinations of drugs for a long period of time and Murray just happened to be giving him the fatal shot, intentionally or not.

 

2. Michael was not a drug addict, but was stressed out and anxious about the upcoming concerts, had trouble sleeping and therefore hired an incapable cardiologist that doesn’t even know how to perform proper CPR, and pays him a shitload of money so he would administer him dangerous anesthetics.

 

People might argue that Michael thought that Murray was only going to put him on an IV for hydration, but Murray administered many other drugs before he allegedly administered the propofol. As reported, Michael was still not able to sleep, thus awake and knowing what Murray gave him. The drugs given to him do not feel like hydration, they effect you, whether they put you down or not.

People can then say that Michael didn’t stay awake and that Murray just kept giving him drugs while he was asleep, before giving him the propofol. That doesn’t make sense in either way. If Murray intended to kill Michael, he would have done it straight away, while it was still night and he could easily get away, after hiding the evidence and removing the bottles of propofol.

If Murray had good intentions it doesn’t make sense either, because if the drugs were working and Michael stayed under with the benzos, then why such a risk to give him propofol outside a hospital setting? He was already asleep, so no need for dangerous anesthetics.

 

So my point is, what sounds more plausible to you?

 

Michael being a hardcore drug addict who died because of a heavy addiction, risking his life and risking leaving his children without a father?

Michael is an irresponsible father, naive and stupid enough to let some incapable doctor administer a dangerous drug, just to get some sleep? That he wasn’t aware of the risks involved? That he is a dummy when it comes to medication? The man that rarely trusts anyone and who feared for his life, let some doctor inject him with stuff of which he didn’t really know what it was? Or that he did know and simply didn’t give a damn about the risks and therefore intentionally risking to leave his kids behind without a father?

Or do you think Michael is a genius, planned a complex death hoax for reasons that will only benefit his children and is maybe even seeing his kids on a regular basis? That Michael cares about this planet and his children enough to plan a death hoax that will bring some awareness, awakening and hope to people, that will benefit not only his and his children’s safety, but also that of you, me and planet earth, that will bring the proof that the media cannot be trusted -something he has been saying for years already- and on top of all that, will break each and every record and make him immortal?

 

You decide.

 

“In loving memory of…”

May 2, 2010 22 comments

 

This is actually a blog we made in December. Because of the Mind Control blog and the Trial blog, we decided not to post this, because we thought the other subjects were way more important. We are now working on two new blogs, and ran into this one again, so we decided to post it now, before the other blogs are finished. It’s the memorial stripped, with all the transcripts of the speeches and some thoughts.

 

 

Smokey Robinson reads messages from Diana Ross and Nelson Mandela. As we all know Diana Ross did not attend the memorial, nor did she attend the funeral.

 

Screen has a picture of Mike with:

 

In loving memory of

Michael Jackson

King of Pop

1958 – 2009

 

Interesting is that it says: Michael Jackson, King of Pop. As we all know Mike wanted to be seen as a person, a human being, not as a personality. To us this means that the King of Pop, the entertainer Michael Jackson died, not the man himself.

 


 

And we wait…. And wait…..And wait a little longer. Mike must be behind all this, he is always late.

 

 

Then it finally starts. The casket is being brought in by the brothers.

 

 

Andrea Crouch Choir perform Soon and Very Soon (“We are going to see the King”)

 


 

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! We’re going to see the King

 

No more crying there, we are going to see the King

No more crying there, we are going to see the King

No more crying there, we are going to see the King

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! We’re going to see the King

 

No more dying there, we are going to see the King

No more dying there, we are going to see the King

No more dying there, we are going to see the King

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! We’re going to see the King

 

 

The original version of this song is actually very happy:

 


 

The original lyrics:

 

Soon and very soon we are going to see the king

Soon and very soon we are going to see the king

Soon and very soon we are going to see the king

Hallelujah, hallelujah, we’re going to see the king

 

No more cryin there, we are going to see the king

No more cryin there, we are going to see the king

No more cryin there, we are going to see the king

Hallelujah, hallelujah, we’re going to see the king

 

No more dying there, we are going to see the King

No more dying there, we are going to see the King

No more dying there, we are going to see the King

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! We’re going to see the King

 

Should there be any rivers we must cross

Should there be any mountains we must climb

God will supply all the strength that we need

Give us strength till we reach the other side…

 

We have come from every nation, God has already signed our name. Jesus took his blood and he washed my sins.. he washed them all away. Yet there are those of us who have laid down our lives but we all shall meet again on the other side… soon and very soon.

 

Soon and very soon we are going to see the king

Soon and very soon we are going to see the king

Soon and very soon we are going to see the king

Hallelujah, hallelujah, we’re going to see the king

 

No more cryin there, we are going to see the king

No more cryin there, we are going to see the king

No more cryin there, we are going to see the king

Hallelujah, hallelujah, we’re going to see the king

 

No more dying there, we are going to see the King

No more dying there, we are going to see the King

No more dying there, we are going to see the King

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! We’re going to see the King

 

Should there be any rivers we must cross

Should there be any mountains we must climb

God will supply all the strength that we need

Give us strength till we reach the other side…

 

The bold part was not performed at the memorial. Maybe there wasn’t time, maybe it was on purpose and we should Google the lyrics to read the rest, to see the message the song contains. Actually the song says, whatever needs to be done to make it right, to cross the barriers of color and culture, we will have the strength to do it.

 


 

There are 9 flowers with the casket. 4 on each side of the casket, 1 on the casket. The colors of the flowers are white, yellow, purple, blue and dark blue, pink and red. 9 is a number we have seen quite often the last months, now what could it mean…? The colors of the flowers all have a different meaning.

 

White flowers:

White signifies purity and perfection and can represent a successful beginning.

 

Yellow flowers:

Yellow is the color of joy. Yellow stimulates creative and intellectual energy. It brings clarity to decision-making and improves concentration. Yellow also can be seen as the color of false mourning. There is an old historical tale about King Henry the 8th of England. He wore yellow on the day after his first wife died, he had found his second already, so some say it is the color of ‘false mourning’. (credits for this go to our breathing Wikipedia 😉 As you can see in the footage and the pictures, Lionel Richie, Kenny Ortega, the male dancers and background singers have a yellow rose on their jackets. The brothers, Prince and Blanket have a yellow tie.

 

Purple flowers:

Purple is definitely the color of power and luxury, but it is also associated with good judgment and spiritual fulfillment. Purple stimulates peace of mind and is used in meditation. 

 

Blue flowers:

Blue is the color of the sky, the ocean and it is also the color that is associated with sleep. Conveying peace and tranquillity, blue is the coolest color and it provides rest for both mind and body, slowing down our metabolic rate. It’s a color that is particularly male.

Dark blue stands for truth and expertise. Pure blue is the color of inspiration and spirituality. Overall, blue gives a feeling of distance and is used to convey a sense of perspective, particularly outwards.

 

Pink flowers:

If anybody thinks about pink, then definitely thinks about the elements of grace, gentility, and happiness. Regardless of the shape of the flower – from the tight, small buds of a pink garden rose to the delicate, open petals of a pink caellia in full bloom – pink blossoms convey youth, innocence, and joy. Pink is the color that always turns the occasion of life into a memorable moment for generations to come.

 

Red flowers:

Red is believed to increase enthusiasm and interest, enhance human metabolism, raise blood pressure and increase respiration rates. A red rose is the eternal symbol of love.

 

 

Pastor Lucious Smith

 


 

Good morning and welcome, my name is Pastor Lucious Smith and I’m proud to call the Jackson family my friends. To millions around the world Michael Jackson was an idol, a hero, even a king, but first and foremost this man before us today was our brother, our son, our father and our friend. Michael Jackson was and always shall be a beloved part of the Jackson family and the family of man. So today we gather those who know and love Michael best and those who came to know and love him through his good works. We come together in this space where only days ago Michael sang, and danced and brought his joy as only he could. We come together and we remember the time. We remember this man by celebrating his life and all of the love that he brought to our own lives for half a century. Our hearts are heavy today because this man, this brother, this son, this father and this friend is gone far too soon. But as long as we remember our time with him, the truth is he is never really gone at all. As long as we remember him, he will be there forever to comfort us. In his very beautiful and very human heart Michael Jackson wanted nothing more than to give love to the world. To share of his singular talent and his soul and perhaps be loved back in return. Through his words, his music and his countless good deeds, Michael did so much to try and heal our world. And so for the Jackson family and for all who grieve his loss everywhere in our world, may this moment of remembrance, a moment of healing, a moment of music and a moment of love bring comfort to those who loved our friend. God bless you.

 

Remember the time, he mentions it a few times. Also later on we see Magic Johnson, who played a small part in the clip. Who also plays a role in Remember the Time is Eddie Murphy, also a master of disguise. We remembered blond lady (Mike in disguise?) holding hands with a black man with a black fedora.

 

In the early hours of May 2, 1997, Murphy was driving his wife’s SUV down Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. Murphy pulled over, and a transvestite hooker named Atisone Kenneth Seiuli (or “Shalomar”) got in. They drove off together, but didn’t get far before Murphy was pulled over by a Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department squad car.”

So maybe black fedora guy is Eddie Murphy? It could be possible in our opinion

BTW: Eddie Murphy, another black guy with a voice, quitting as a stand-up comedian overnight, to be an actor. Silenced as well?

 


 

 

Mariah Carey & Trey Lorenz perform “I’ll Be There”

 


 

You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I’ll be there

I’ll reach out my hand to you, I’ll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I’ll be there

I’ll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you, I’m so glad that I found you
I’ll be there with a love that’s strong
I’ll be your strength, I’ll keep holding on

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that’s all I’m after
Whenever you need me, I’ll be there
I’ll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name and I’ll be there

If you should ever find someone new, I know he’d better be good to you
‘Cause if he doesn’t, I’ll be there
Don’t you know, baby, yeah yeah
I’ll be there, I’ll be there, just call my name, I’ll be there

(Just look over your shoulders, honey – oo)

I’ll be there, I’ll be there, whenever you need me, I’ll be there
Don’t you know, baby, yeah yeah

I’ll be there, I’ll be there, just call my name, I’ll be there…

 

“You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back”. Indeed, that is what needs to be done and that is what Mike in our opinion wants us to do. Make a pact, stand together as one.


Why Mariah Carey and Trey Lorenz? Of course we know that Mariah was a friend of Mike and Trey is one of her long time supporting singer. BUT, there is more that could link them to this hoax.

Mariah made her recording debut in 1990 under the guidance of Tommy Mottola, who headed Sony Music Entertainment, parent of the Columbia label for 15 years. She married Mottola in 1993 and all the time she was with Mottola, business was good. But after leaving him in 1997, we all know why their marriage was not that happy, her popularity declined. As our bible Wiki says:

“Following her separation from Mottola in 1997, Carey introduced elements of hip hop into her album work, to much initial success, but her popularity was in decline when she left Columbia in 2001. She signed to Virgin Records but was dropped from the label and bought out of her contract the following year after a highly publicized physical and emotional breakdown, as well as the poor reception given to Glitter, her film and soundtrack project. ”

How come such a big selling artist looses that much popularity all of the sudden? Also, why only after she left Mottola? Makes you wonder, was she not obedient enough anymore? Was she fighting them? If you don’t do as they say, you carreer is over, you are on your own. We just mention it again: Michael Jackson – Invincible…enough said.

Trey Lorenz also has a connection with Sony. Trey was signed to Jermaine Dupri’s Atlanta-based So So Def Records label, but never put out any music under the label. The So So Def label was established in 1993 as a spinoff of Dupri’s production company of the same moniker, through a joint venture with Sony Music and Columbia Records. Its first act was female R&B group Xscape.

Dupri also worked with Mariah and Usher.

 


 

 

Queen Latifah

 


 

I’m here representing million of fans around the world who grew up listening to Michael, being inspired and loving Michael from a distance; all of you. Somehow when Michael Jackson sang or when he danced we never felt distant, we felt like he was right there; right for us. You believed in Michael and he believed in you. He made you believe in yourself. I loved him all my life. One of the first records my brother and I ever bought was dancing machine. And I’ll never forget the two of us getting the robot going trying to be like the Jackson 5. Thank you. Thank you. Michael was the biggest star on earth. He let me know that as an African-American, you could travel the world — there was a world outside of America, other people. All you people who came here to pay respect to someone who you felt was one of you, a human being first. This morning I spoke with perhaps one of our greatest posts Maya Angelou, and I’m so honored that she asked me to share some words that she wrote for Michael.

We Had Him by Dr. Maya Angelou

Beloveds, now we know that we know nothing, now that our bright and shining star can slip away from our fingertips like a puff of summer wind.
Without notice, our dear love can escape our doting embrace. Sing our songs among the stars and walk our dances across the face of the moon.
In the instant we learn that Michael is gone, we know nothing. No clocks can tell time. No oceans can rush our tides with the abrupt absence of our treasure.
Though we are many, each of us is achingly alone, piercingly alone.
Only when we confess our confusion can we remember that he was a gift to us and we did have him.
He came to us from the creator, trailing creativity in abundance.
Despite the anguish, his life was sheathed in mother love, family love, and survived and did more than that.
He thrived with passion and compassion, humor and style. We had him whether we know who he was or did not know, he was ours and we were his.
We had him, beautiful, delighting our eyes.
He … his hat, aslant over his brow, and took a pose on his toes for all of us.
And we laughed and stomped our feet for him.
We were enchanted with his passion because he held nothing. He gave us all he had been given.
Today in Tokyo, beneath the Eiffel Tower, in Ghana’s Black Star Square.
In Johannesburg and Pittsburgh, in Birmingham, Alabama, and Birmingham, England
We are missing Michael.
But we do know we had him, and we are the world.

 

On the screen we see Mike pointing at her, as far as we recall, it’s a picture of Mike performing ‘Man in the Mirror’ during the BAD tour or the Grammys.

 

Why Queen Latifah? Actually she was asked by Maya Angelou, who was unable to attend, so we better have a look at her. Maya Angelou was a member of the Harlem Writers Guild in the late 1950s, was active in the Civil Rights movement, and served as Northern Coordinator of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference. So we can say she is a black woman with a voice.

 


 

 

Lionel Richie performs “Jesus Is Love”

 


 

Father
Help Your children
And don’t let them fall
By the side of the road, mmm…mmm…

And teach them
To love one another
That Heaven might find
A place in their hearts

‘Cause Jesus is love
He won’t let you down
And I know He’s mine forever
Oh, in my heart

We’ve got to walk on
Walk on through temptation
‘Cause His love and His wisdom
Will be our helpin’ hand

And I know the Truth
And His words will be our salvation
Lift up our hearts
To be thankful and glad

That Jesus is love
He won’t let you down
And I know He’s mine
Deep down in my soul

Jesus is love
Oh, yes, He is
He won’t let you down
And I know He’s mine, He’s mine, He’s mine, He’s mine, all mine
Forever, oh, in my heart
Help me, heart, heart
Ooh…ooh…

(Deep in my heart)
I know, I know, I know, I know
Ah, ’cause His love’s the power (Power)
His love’s the glory (Glory)
Forever (Ever and ever)

Ooh, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Ooh, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Ooh, yeah, yeah (Yeah, yeah)

I wanna follow your star
Wherever it leads me
And I don’t mind, Lord
I hope you don’t mind

I wanna walk with you
And talk with you
And do all the things you want me to do
‘Cause I know that Jesus

(Jesus is Love, I know) ‘Cause I know, Lord
(And if you ask, I’ll show)
(Love is the word forever) And ever and ever

Who can bring you love (Jesus)
Who can bring you joy (Jesus)
Who can turn your life around (Jesus), oh

Ooh, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Hey

Who will pick you up (Jesus)
When you fall (Jesus)
Who’ll stand beside you (Jesus)
Who will love us all

Hey, hey, Jesus (Yeah, yeah)
Jesus (Yeah, yeah)
Oh, yeah (Yeah, yeah)

One thing I wanna say
Who can heal your body (Jesus)
Who can make you strong (Jesus)
Who can help you to hold out (Jesus)
A little while longer

Ooh, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Jesus loves you (Yeah, yeah), Jesus wants you
If you call Him, He will answer

(Jesus) Call him in the mornin’
(Jesus) Call him in the evenin’
(Jesus) Call him in the midnight hour

Hey, hey (Yeah, yeah)
Yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Yeah, y’all say it for me

(Jesus is love)


 

It’s not one of Mike’s songs, which makes you think that the lyrics must be important. The song is all about love. Whatever happens, which temptations you might bump into in your life, remember to always be guided by love and love for each other. Teach your children to love others. As we both are not religious we might have a different interpretation, but the message remains the same: L.O.V.E. The bold parts were not performed.

 

Why Lionel Richie? Well he is a long time friend and was signed at Motown with the Commodores the same time as the Jackson 5.

 

 

Berry Gordy

 


 

He was driven by his hunger to learn to constantly top himself to be the best. He was the consummate student. He studied the greats and became greater. He raised the bar and then broke the bar. His talent and creativity thrust him and entertainment into another stratosphere. The Motown family mourns the death of our friend and brother Michael Jackson who was like a son to me. Our deep condolences go out to all his family, his parents; Joe, Katherine, his beautiful children, his sisters and brothers and his nieces and nephews. Michael Jackson was 10 years old when he and his brothers auditioned for me in Motown in Detroit that July day in 1968, and blew us all away. The Jackson 5 were just amazing, and little Michael’s performance was way beyond his years. This little kid had an incredible knowingness about him. He sang with such feeling and inspiration. Michael had a quality that I couldn’t completely understand but we all knew he was special. Aside from singing and dancing like James Brown and Jackie Wilson, he sung a Smokey Robinson song called Who’s Lovin’ You. He sang it with the sadness and passion of a man who’d been living the blues and heartbreak his whole life. And as great as Smokey sang it, I thought Michael was better. I went to Smokey and said hey man I think he got you on that one. Smokey said me too. That was Motown. Motown was built on love and competition and sometimes the competition got in the way of the love but the love always won out. We competed on everything. And California we had a baseball game every week, the Jacksons vs. the Gordy’s. Unfortunately for us, Tito and Jackie were big homerun hitters. They would knock the ball out of the park. But then so was my son Barry and I’m not going to tell you who won most of the games but I will tell you that the Gordy’s cried a lot. And even though little Michael was the catchers for the Jackson’s and missed a lot of balls we still cried a lot. But we swam and we joked and we played games and when Michael performed his songs you could feel the hipness in his soul because that’s what he loved to do. Michael inspired me so much that for days I walked around humming a bright little happy tune with him in mind…then I put a group together and we came up with 4 hit records for them, I Want You Back, ABC, The Love You Save and I’ll Be There. The Jackson 5 was the only group in history to have their first 4 records go to number 1. In 1983 the brothers reunited and returned to do Motown 25th anniversary show. After a high powered dazzling melody of their songs Michael took the stage alone and made pop history. From the first beat of Billie Jean, I was mesmerized. And when he did his iconic moonwalk, I was shocked. It was magic. Michael Jackson went into orbit, and never came down. At 10 years old, he had passion. He had passion to be the greatest entertainer in the world and he was willing to work as hard to do whatever it took to become what he indeed became the undisputed King of Pop, the world over. What kid wouldn’t give his right arm to fulfill his wildest childhood dreams? Michael loved it all, every moment on stage, every moment in rehearsal. Michael loved creating what have never been done before. He loved everything and everybody especially his fans. I must say though that he did have two personalities. Off stage he was shy, soft spoken and childlike, but when he took the stage in front of his screaming fans he turned into another person. A master, a take no prisoner show man. It was like kill or be killed. I mean Michael was awesome, totally in charge. In fact the more I think about Michael Jackson, the more I think The King of Pop is not big enough for him. I think he is simply the greatest entertainer that ever lived. Michael, thank you for the joy. Thank you for the love. You will live in my heart forever. I love you.

 


 

The picture on the screen is of Mike during a gig in The Apollo in 2002:

 

24 April 2002

A Night At The Apollo

New York, Apollo Theater

 

“I must say though that he did have two personalities. Off stage he was shy, soft spoken and childlike, but when he took the stage in front of his screaming fans he turned into another person. A master, a take no prisoner show man.” Does Berry address Mike’s alters here without being too blunt about it?

Why Berry Gordy? Being founder of Motown Records, working that many years with the Jackson 5, it’s not strange he attends.

 

 

Short clips of Mike.

 

Songs played are: Dirty Diana, Billie Jean, Ghost, Bad, They don’t care about us, Scream, You are not alone.

 

The biggest part is You are not alone, ending with “Together, Together”

 

Spoken words by Mike:

 

Again I want to say thank you, thank you God. In the past I’ve gone from ‘where is he?’ to ‘here he is again’. But I must confess it is good to be thought of as a person, not as a personality. Fame, fortune, they are all illusions.

 

Interesting words to put in the compilation. ‘Where is he?’ to ‘here he is again’?

Plus again pointed out that he is a person, not just a personality.

 

 

Stevie Wonder

 


 

This is a moment that I wished that I didn’t live to see come. But as much as I can say that and mean it I do know that God is good and I do know that as much as we may feel and we do that we need Michael here with us, God must have needed him far more. Michael I love and I told you that many times so I’m at peace with that. I as well told you that I never ever imagined that I would write a song that would be sent to Quincy Jones and you would hear it and my sister Renee would get me the cassette and I’d hear it back and be amazed that you did this song…we can’t help but love you forever Michael.

 

The song he plays before “Never Thought You’d Leave In The Summer” is I Can’t Help it, and he ends with the part that seems to be ‘You’re an Angel in disguise’, just something to think about.

 

 

Stevie Wonder performs “Never Thought You’d Leave In The Summer”/ “They won’t go when I go”

 

I never dreamed you’d leave in summer

I thought you would go then come back home

I thought the cold would leave by summer

But my quiet nights will be spent alone

 

You said then you would be the light in autumn

Said you’d be the one who’d lead the way

I never dreamed you’d leave in summer

But now I find my love has gone away

 

Michael, why didn’t you stay?

 

No more lying friends

Wanting tragic ends

Though they do pretend

They won’t go when i go

 

All those bleeding hearts

With sorrows to impart

Were right here from the start

And they won’t go when i go

 

And i’ll go where i’ve longed

To go so long

Away from tears

 

Unclean minds mislead the pure

The innocent will leave for sure

For them there is a resting place

People sinning just for fun

They will never see the sun

For they can never show their faces

There ain’t no room for the hopeless sinner

Who will take more than he will give

He ain’t hardly gonna give

 

The greed of man will be

Far away from me

And my soul will be free

They won’t go when i go

 

Since my soul conceived

All that i believe

The kingdom i will see

‘Cause they won’t go when i go

 

When i go

Where i’ll go

No one can keep me

From my destiny

 

Michael they wont go, they won’t go where you have gone.

 

 

They original lyrics of I never dreamed you’d leave in summer are:

 

I never dreamed you’d leave in summer

I thought you would go then come back home

I thought the cold would leave by summer

But my quiet nights will be spent alone

 

You said there would be warm love in springtime

That was when you started to be cold

I never dreamed you’d leave in summer

But now I find myself all alone

 

You said then you’d be the life in autumn

Said you’d be the one to see the way

I never dreamed you’d leave in summer

But now I find my love has gone away

 

Why didn’t you stay?

 

As you can see the bold part was left out of the song at the memorial, but more interesting is the changing of the lyrics (in red). Instead of life, Stevie sings light and instead of see the way, he sings lead the way. In autumn, the song This is It was released, part of the lyrics: I’m the light of the world. And is he the one to lead the way? We think he is, at least if people will see the message, understand it and join him.

 

They original lyrics of They Won’t Go When I Go are:

 

No more lying friends

Wanting tragic ends

Though they do pretend

They won’t go when I go

 

All those bleeding hearts

With sorrows to impart

Were right here from the start

And they won’t go when I go

 

And I’ll go where I’ve longed

To go so long

Away from tears

 

Gone from painful cries

Away from saddened eyes

Along with him I’ll bide

Because they won’t go when I go

 

Big men feeling small

Weak ones standing tall

I will watch them fall

They won’t go when I go

 

And I’ll go where I’ve longed

To go so long

Away from tears

 

Unclean minds mislead the pure

The innocent will leave for sure

For them there is a resting place

People sinning just for fun

They will never see the sun

For they can never show their faces

There ain’t no room for the hopeless sinner

Who will take more than he will give

He ain’t hardly gonna give

 

The greed of man will be

Far away from me

And my soul will be free

They won’t go when i go

 

Since my soul conceived

All that i believe

The kingdom i will see

‘Cause they won’t go when i go

 

When i go

Where i’ll go

No one can keep me

From my destiny

 

Again, the bold part was left out, but he merged two songs, so that would explain that, but it’s an interesting choice of songs.

 

Why Stevie Wonder? Stevie is also a child star. He signed with Motown Records at the age of eleven. On 1 December 2009, he was named a UN Messenger of Peace.

 


 

 

Kobe Bryant & Magic Johnson

 


 

Kobe Bryant:

 

“You all know that nobody ever gave on stage like Michael Jackson, but Michael was also a true humanitarian who gave just as much off stage as he did on the stage. Michael and his family came from humble roots and Michael always cared very deeply for those in need. And beyond all of his records that he wrote as a recording artist Michael even made the Guinness Book of World Records for most charities supported by a pop star. Because he gave so much for so many of us, for so long, Michael Jackson will be with us forever.”

 

Magic Johnson:

 

I met Jackie Jackson about 30 years ago and he was a season ticket holder for the Lakers as well as his brother Marlon. Jackie and I became friends and he began to invite me out to their home. Then I got to know the brothers and the sisters and his incredible mother and father. We love to play with fire crackers and just have fun. And Barry just like you lost to the Jackson’s in softball, so did I. And we had some incredible times together. Then Jackie invited me to go on tour with the brothers and then I got to see the genius of Michael Jackson. He was so incredible; he always had command of not only the band, his brothers but also the audience. I truly believe that Michael made me a better point guard and basketball player as I watched him be so great and be the greatest entertainer ever. From there, Michel called me one day and said I want to talk to you about being in a video Remember the Time. But I had to double check with Jackie to make sure it was really Michael because I was scared to death to go over to his house because this was my idol, he was everything to me. So I went over to his house to have dinner. The chef came out and said what would you like, I said some grilled chicken. So as we begin to talk about the video and what he wanted me to do, the chef brought me out the grilled chicken but he brought Michael out a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. And I went crazy like wait a minute Michael you eat Kentucky Fried Chicken? That made my day. That was the greatest moment of my life. We had such a good time sitting on the floor eating that bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken and I want to say this. This is a celebration of his life, of his legacy. I want to thank Michael for opening up so many doors for African Americans to be on day time shows, late night shows. He allowed Kobe and I to have our jerseys in people’s homes across the world because he was already there. And he opened all those doors for us. His three children will have the most incredible grandmother that god has put on this earth to take care of them. Michael’s three children will have incredible uncles and aunts to take care of them as well and they will have plenty of cousins to play with. So may God continue to bless this incredible family. We say that we’re praying for you, remain strong. We want to thank the city of Los Angeles for putting this on, AEG for putting it on as well and may God continue to bless you Michael.

 

The story that Magic Johnson tells about the KFC reminded us of our previous blog. We do believe Mike has been poisoned multiple times in his life. Why on earth would you order KFC if you have a cook who can make you anything you want? Was he afraid they would have put something in it? Makes us think he couldn’t even trust his own staff.

 

Why Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson? Well we think that has something to do with our Dr. Conrad Murray. If you can pay in court with false dollars and still walk around as a free man while being the main suspect of the murder of Michael Jackson, there is no way you are real, so this must be a man with a mask. Being like 8 feet tall, big chance he is a basketball player, maybe at the Lakers, or a former player. But who could he be? We don’t know anything about basketball, so we’ll leave that up to you. An interesting thought is that Michael Jordan (who played a role in the “Jam” clip and is also called ‘MJ’, is about the same height as Conrad.

 

Also, Magic Johnson is a fighter, like Mike. He retired abruptly in 1991 after announcing that he had HIV, but returned to play in the 1992 All-Star Game, winning the All-Star MVP Award. After protests from his fellow players, he retired again for four years, but returned in 1996 to play 32 games for the Lakers before retiring for the third and final time.

 

In the summer of 2003, the sheriff’s office of Eagle, Colorado arrested Kobe Bryant in connection with an investigation of a sexual assault complaint filed by 19-year old hotel employee Katelyn Faber. Bryant had checked into The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera hotel in Eagle, Colorado in advance of undergoing knee surgery nearby. Faber accused Bryant of raping her in his hotel room the night before Bryant was to have the procedure. Bryant admitted an adulterous sexual encounter with his accuser, but denied her sexual assault allegation.

The accusation tarnished Bryant’s reputation, as the public’s perception of Bryant plummeted, and his endorsement contracts with McDonald’s and Nutella were terminated. Sales for Bryant’s replica jersey fell significantly from their previous highs.

However, in September 2004 the assault case was dropped by prosecutors after Faber refused to testify in the trial. Afterward, Bryant agreed to apologize to Faber for the incident, including his public mea culpa: “Although I truly believe this encounter between us was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did.” Faber filed a separate civil lawsuit against Bryant, which the two sides ultimately settled with the specific terms of the settlement being undisclosed to the public.

 


 

 

Jennifer Hudson performs “Will You Be There”

 


 

Hold me

Like the river Jordan

And I will then say to thee

You are my friend

 

Carry me

Like you are my brother

Love me like a mother

could you be there?

 

Everyone’s taking control of me

Seems that the world’s

Got a role for me

I’m so confused

Will you show to me

You’ll be there for me

And care enough to bear me

 

(Hold me)

(Lay your head lowly)

(Softly then boldly)

(Carry me there)

 

(Hold me)

(Love me and feed me)

(Kiss me and free me)

(I will feel blessed)

 

(Carry)

(Carry me boldly)

(Lift me up slowly)

(Carry me there)

 

(Save me)

(Heal me and bathe me)

(Softly you say to me)

(I will be there)

 

(Lift me)

(Lift me up slowly)

(Carry me boldly)

(Show me you care)

 

(Hold me)

(Lay your head lowly)

(Softly then boldly)

(Carry me there)

 

(Need me)

(Love me and feed me)

(Kiss me and free me)

(I will feel blessed)

 

In our darkest hour

In my deepest despair

Will you still care?

Will you be there?

In my trials

And my tribulations

Through our doubts

And frustrations

In my violence

In my turbulence

Through my fear

And my confessions

In my anguish and my painS

Through my joy and my sorrow

In the promise of another tomorrow

I’ll never let you part

For you’re always in my heart

 

 

The original lyrics of Will you be there are:

 

Hold me

Like the river Jordan

And I will then say to thee

You are my friend

 

Carry me

Like you are my brother

Love me like a mother

could you be there?

 

When weary

Tell me will you hold me

When wrong, will you skold me

When lost will you find me?

 

But they told me

A man should be faithful

And walk when not able

And fight til the end

But I’m only human

 

Everyone’s taking control of me

Seems that the world’s

Got a role for me

I’m so confused

Will you show to me

You’ll be there for me

And care enough to bear me

 

(Hold me)

(Lay your head lowly)

(Softly then boldly)

(Carry me there)

 

(Hold me)

(Love me and feed me)

(Kiss me and free me)

(I will feel blessed)

 

(Carry)

(Carry me boldly)

(Lift me up slowly)

(Carry me there)

 

(Save me)

(Heal me and bathe me)

(Softly you say to me)

(I will be there)

 

(Lift me)

(Lift me up slowly)

(Carry me boldly)

(Show me you care)

 

(Hold me)

(Lay your head lowly)

(Softly then boldly)

(Carry me there)

 

(Need me)

(Love me and feed me)

(Kiss me and free me)

(I will feel blessed)

 

In our darkest hour

In my deepest despair

Will you still care?

Will you be there?

In my trials

And my tribulations

Through our doubts

And frustrations

In my violence

In my turbulence

Through my fear

And my confessions

In my anguish and my pain

Through my joy and my sorrow

In the promise of another tomorrow

I’ll never let you part

For you’re always in my heart

 

Again a part that was deleted from the version on the memorial. Why would they have left this out? It was just one song, and as Mike said in This Is It, he wants his songs to be exactly as he wrote it. There is also the crappy audio of the spoken words, as if Mike is speaking on the phone. The extra S in pains is something we have never heard on any records, so this must have been either live or recently recorded. The meaning? Most likely because you can’t call it pain anymore what he endured. Even pains is an understatement.

 

Here is a video which compares the original song with the Jennifer Hudson version:

 


 

Why Jennifer Hudson? Well, we have been searching and searching, couldn’t find a link. But she is carrying new life and wearing white, the color of purity, innocence and hope.

 


 

 

Rev Al Sharpton

 


 

All over the world today people are gathered in love visuals to celebrate the life of a man that taught the world how to love. People may be wondering why there is such an emotional outburst. But you would have to understand the journey of Michael to understand what he meant to all of us. For these that sit here as the Jackson family, a mother and father with 9 children, who rose from a working class family in Gary, Indiana. They had nothing but a dream; no one believed in those days that these kinds of dreams could come true. But they keep on believing and Michael never let the world turn him around from his dreams. I first met Michael around 1970 Black Expo, Chicago, Illinois. Reverend Jesse Jackson who stood by this family till now. And from that day as a cute kid to this moment he never gave up dreaming. It was that dream that changed culture all over the world. When Michael started, it was a different. But because Michael kept going, because he didn’t accept limitations, because he refused to let people decide his boundaries, he opened up the whole world. In the music he put on one glove, pulled his pants up and broke down the color curtain. When now our videos were shown and magazines put us on the cover, it was Michael Jackson that brought blacks and whites and Asians and Latinos together. It was Michael Jackson that made us sing ‘we are the world,’ to feed the hungry long before Live Aid. Because Michael Jackson kept going, he created a comfort level where people that felt they were separate became interconnected with his music. And It was that comfort level that kids from Japan and Ghana and France and Iowa and Pennsylvania got comfortable enough with each other so later it wasn’t strange to us to watch Oprah on television. It wasn’t strange to watch Tiger Woods’ golf. Those young kids grew up from being teenage comfortable fans of Michael to being 40 years old and being comfortable to vote for a person of color to be the president of the United States of America. Michael did that! Michael made us love each other. Michael taught us to stand with each other. There are those that like to dig around mess, but millions around the world we’re going to uphold his message. It’s not about mess; it’s about his love message. As you climb up steep mountains sometimes you scar your knee. Sometimes you break the skin but don’t focus on the scars, focus on the journey. Michael beat them. Michael rose to the top. He out sang his cynics. He out danced his doubters. He outperformed the pessimists. Every time he got knocked down he got back up. Every time you counted him out he came back in. Michael never stopped! Michael never stopped! Michael never stopped! I want to say to Mrs. Jackson and Joe Jackson, his sisters and brothers; we thank you for giving us someone that taught us love, someone that taught us hope. We want to thank you because we know he was your dream too. We know that your heart is broken; I know you have some comforts from a letter from the President of the United States and Nelson Mandela but this was your child, this was your brother, this was your cousin. Nothing will fill your heats loss but I hope the love that people have shown will make you know he didn’t live in vain. I want his children to know: wasn’t anything strange about your Daddy. It was strange what your Daddy had to deal with. But he dealt with it anyway. He dealt with it for us. So some came today, Mrs. Jackson, to say good bye to Michael; I came to say thank you. Thank you because you never stopped. Thank you because you never gave up. Thank you because you never gave out. Thank you because you tore down our divisions. Thank you because you irradiated barriers. Thank you because you gave us hope. Thank you Michael! Thank you Michael! Thank you Michael!

 

One of the most powerful speeches of the memorial, hitting the nail right on the head.

 

“Michael made us love each other. Michael taught us to stand with each other. There are those that like to dig around mess, but millions around the world we’re going to uphold his message. It’s not about mess; it’s about his love message. As you climb up steep mountains sometimes you scar your knee. Sometimes you break the skin but don’t focus on the scars, focus on the journey. Michael beat them. Michael rose to the top. He out sang his cynics. He out danced his doubters. He outperformed the pessimists. Every time he got knocked down he got back up. Every time you counted him out he came back in. Michael never stopped! Michael never stopped! Michael never stopped!”

And he still hasn’t stopped. Who’s in for the long ride?

 

On the screen: There’s nothing that can’t be done if we raise our voice as one.

 

These are words from one of Mike’s songs, We’ve had enough. Look at the lyrics, they are quite interesting if you believe the same as us as for why he pulled of this hoax:

 

We’ve had enough

 

Love was taken from a young life

And no one told her why

Her direction has a dimlight

From one more violent crime

 

She innocently questioned why

Why her father had to die

She asked the men in blue

How is it that you get to choose

Who will live and who will die

Did god say that you could decide ?

You saw he didn’t run

And that my daddy had no gun

 

In the middle of a village

Way in a distant land

Lies a poor boy with his broken toy

Too young to understand

 

He’s awaken, ground is shakin

His father grabs his hand

Screaming, crying, his wife’s dying

Now he’s left to explain

 

He innocently questioned why

Why his mother had to die

What did these soldiers come here for ?

If they’re for peace, why is there war ?

 

Did God say that they could decide

Who will live and who will die ?

All my mama ever did

Was try to take care of her kids

 

We’re innocently standing by

Watching people lose their lives

It seems as if we have no voice

It’s time for us to make a choice

 

Only god could decide

Who will live and who will die

There’s nothing that can’t be done

If we raise our voice as one

 

They’ve gotta hear it from me

They’ve gotta hear it from you

They’ve gotta hear it from us

We can’t take it

We’ve already had enough

 

They’ve gotta hear it from me

They’ve gotta hear it from you

They’ve gotta hear it from us

 

We can’t take it

We’ve already had enough

 

They’ve gotta hear it from me

They’ve gotta hear it from you

They’ve gotta hear it from you baby

 

We can’t take it

We’ve already had enough

 

Deep in my soul baby

 

Deep in your soul and let God decide

 

Deep in my soul

 

It’s up to me and i’m still alive

 

They’ve gotta hear it from us

 

We can’t take it

We’ve already had enough

 

It’s going down baby

Just let God decide,

 

It’s going on baby

Just let God decide

 

Deep in my soul baby

 

We’ve already had enough

 

They’ve gotta hear it from me

They’ve gotta hear it from you

They’ve gotta hear it from us

 

We can’t, we can’t

We’ve already had enough

 

Message of this song: Raise our voice as one, fight those who think they can decide for us. It’s not up to them to decide who will die, who will be hungry or who will be homeless, they shouldn’t control us, we shouldn’t let them, because we’ve had enough!

 


 

 

John Mayer performs “Human Nature”

 


 

The original lyrics of Human Nature are:

 

Looking out

Across the nighttime

The city winks a sleepless eye

Hear her voice

Shake my window

Sweet seducing sighs

Get me out

Into the night time

Four walls won’t hold me tonight

If this town

Is just an apple

Then let me take a bite

 

If they say

Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature

Why, why, does he do me that way

If they say

Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature

Why, why, does he do me that way

 

Reaching out

To touch a stranger

Electric eyes are everywhere

See that girl

She knows I’m watching

She likes the way I stare

 

I like livin’ this way

I like lovin’ this way

 

Looking out

Across the morning

Where the city’s heart begins to beat

Reaching out

I touch her shoulder

I’m dreaming of the street

 

So now all the words were cut out. Why? John Mayer can sing, why did he do an instrumental version? As good as John may be on his guitar, the voice is missed. Maybe it is to make us aware that if we have a voice, we should use it. Why not use something so powerful when you own it?

 

Why John Mayer? At the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in 2007 Mayer won Best Pop Vocal Album for Continuum and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for “Waiting on the World to Change”. John Mayer is also involved in philanthropic activities through his “Back to You” fund and his concern over global warming. So he even won a Grammy with that voice? And not let him sing seems awkward, but maybe that is why HE was supposed to keep his mouth, to lay emphasis on the (missing) voice.

 


 

 

Brooke Shields

 


 

Michael was one of a kind. I was thinking back to when we met and the many times that we spent together and whenever we were out together and there would be a picture taken there would be a caption of some kind and the caption usually said something like ‘an odd couple’ or ‘an unlikely pair’ but to us it was the most natural and easiest of friendships. I was 13 when we met and from that day on our friendship grew. Michael always knew he could count on me to support him or be his date and that we would have fun no matter where we were. We had a bond and maybe it was because we both understood what it was like to be in the spotlight at a very young age. I used to tease him and I’d say I started when I was11 months old, you’re a slacker. You were what, 5? Both of us needed to be adults very early. But when we were together, we were two little kids having fun. We never collaborated together, we never performed together, or danced on the same stage although he did try in vain one night to unsuccessfully teach me the moonwalk and he just basically just shook his head and crossed his arms at my attempt. We never filmed a video or recorded a song, but what we did do was laugh. It was a competition to see who can make the other one laugh more or be sillier. Michael loved to laugh. His heart would just burst out of him when he was laughing. He adored it when I did silly imitations or told him stories about my life. MJ’s laugh was the sweetest and purest of anyone I had ever known. His sense of humor was delightful and he was very mischievous. I remember it was the night before Elizabeth Taylor’s wedding and he had called me prior and asked if I would join him, he didn’t want to be alone for all the festivities. And it was the night before the big day and Michael and I tried to sneak in to get the first peak of the dress and we were just giggling like crazy and we almost passed out in hysterics when we realized that Elizabeth was actually asleep I the bed. We thought she was in an entirely different room. And we had to laugh and sneak out and then at the point of the wedding when there was the first dance basically we had to joke that we were the mother and father of the bride. Yes it may have seemed very odd to the outside, but we made it fun and we made it real. When he started wearing the glove, I was like what’s up with the glove? I was like look if you’re going to hold my hand it better be the non gloved one because sequence really hurts me…it digs in. He would just shake his head and he would just smile. He loved to be teased. Seeing him smile made you feel like everything was going to be alright. To the outside world, Michael was a genius with unchallenged ability. To the people who were lucky enough to know him personally he was caring and funny, honest, pure, non-jaded and he was a lover of life. He cared so deeply for his family and his friends and his fans. He was often referred to as the King but the Michael I knew always reminded me more of The Little Prince. Thinking of him now I’d like to share a passage from the book:

What moves me so deeply about this sleeping little prince is his loyalty to a flower–the image of a rose shining within him like a flame within a lamp, even when he’s asleep… And I realized he was even more fragile than I thought. Lamps must be protected. A gust of wind can blow them out.

Michael’s sensitivity was even more extraordinary than his talent. And his true truth resided in his heart. As The Little Prince also said… Eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart. What’s most important is invisible. Michael saw everything with his heart. To his family, his brothers and sisters, Katherine, Joe and to his children, Prince, Paris, Blanket, my prayers are with you. Michael’s favorite song was not one of the countless masterpieces that he gave us but it was a song that Charlie Chaplin wrote for the movie Modern Times. It’s called Smile. There’s a line in the song that says ‘smile though your heart is aching.’ Today, although our hearts are aching we need to look up where he is undoubtedly perched in a crescent moon and we need to smile.

The story of The Little Prince is actually very touching and interesting.

 

Though ostensibly a children’s book, The Little Prince makes several profound and idealistic observations about life and human nature. For example, Saint-Exupéry tells of a fox meeting the young prince as he exits the Sahara desert. The story’s essence is contained in the lines uttered by the fox to the little prince: “On ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.” (“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.”) Other key thematic messages are articulated by the fox, such as: “You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed” and “It is the time you have spent with your rose that makes your rose so important.”

Jermaine Jackson performs “Smile”

 


 

Smile though your heart is aching

Smile, even though it’s breaking

When there are clouds in the sky

You’ll get by…

 

If you smile

With your fear and sorrow

Smile and maybe tomorrow

You’ll find that life’s still worth while if you’ll just…

Light up your face with sadness

Hide every trace of gladness

Although a tear may be ever so near

That’s the time you must keep on trying

Smile, what’s the use of crying

You’ll find that life is still worth while

If you’ll just…

 

Smile though your heart is aching

Smile, even though it’s breaking

When there are clouds in the sky

You’ll get by…

 

If you just smile

Through your fear and sorrow

Smile and maybe tomorrow

You’ll find that life is still worth while

If you’ll just smile

That’s the time you must keep on trying

Smile, what’s the use of crying

You’ll find that life is still worth while

If you’ll just smile.

 

Jermaine is the master of slip-ups. Thank you Jermaine, for that nice “Slip-up”, we all got that immediately.

 


 

 

Martin Luther King Jr. III & Bernice A. King

 


 

Martin Luther King Jr. III:

 

First I must say to Mrs. Katherine Jackson, Mr. Joseph Jackson, the children of Michael Jackson, to Michael Jackson’s brothers and sisters and the entire Jackson family, our prayers and condolences are constantly with you. My father once said that in life one must discover what their calling is and when they do they must do their jobs so well that the living, the dead and the unborn cold do them no better. He constantly…to become our best by stating that if you cannot be a pine on the top of the hill why just be a shrub in the valley, but be the best little shrub on the side of the road. Be a bush if you cannot be a tree. If you cannot be the highway just be a trail. If you cannot be the sun, just be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or you fail, you got to be the best at what you are. Michael Jackson was truly the best of what he was. Finally Martin Luther King Jr. said that in life if it falls…to be a street sweeper you must sweep streets so well. In fact you must sweep streets like Beethoven composed music. Sweep streets he said like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets like Raphael painted pictures. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of the heavens and earths would have to pause and say here lived the great street sweeper that did his house well. On June 25th because he was the best I believe heaven and earth did pause indeed to say of Michael Joseph Jackson here lived a great entertainer who did his job well.

 

Bernice A. King:

 

To the Jackson family, being a part of a world renounced family who has also experienced a sudden death on more than one occasion; my prayer is that no one and nothing public, fact or fiction, true or rumored will separate you from the love God which is in Christ Jesus. Because ultimately at the end of the day it is only God’s love that will anchor you, sustain you and move you to a higher ground far above the noise of life, there you will find the peace, comfort and joy to move forward to advance Michael’s legacy. And for all of us it is apparent that like our father and mother, Martin and Coretta King, Michael’s life and work was inspired by the love of God. Throughout the ages few are chosen from amongst us to use their gifts and talents to demonstrate God’s love in an effort to bring the world together in true sister and brotherhood. Michael was such a one. He epitomized the words of our father that an individual hasn’t started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of humanity. Michael was always concerned with others with humanity. And I want the world to know that despite being embroiled in accusations and persecutions, as a humanitarian he thought it not robbery to concern himself with one of this world’s other greatest humanitarians, our mother, during her illness just three months before her death. In October, 2005 I was with mom when Michael called to say…and although she couldn’t speak because of a debilitating stroke. She listened as he said to her that he had been praying on his knees everyday for her. That to him she was America’s true royalty and he wanted her to know if music was being played in her room because of its healing effect. My only wish is that he could have seen the glow on her face. If faces could smile as we know they do, that day Michael Jackson made our mother’s face smile in spite of her condition. What an unforgettable moment. He was such a thoughtful and selfless man, full of the unconditional love of God and good works that touched and changed lives. He was indeed a shining light. Like our father Martin and in remembrance of Michael, may we all be inspired to go and let our lights shine. Rest in peace our brother Michael.

 

On the screen: “The say the sky’s the limit, and to me that is really true”. A part of BAD, one of the songs we believe he wrote to those that wanted him down.

 

Why Martin and Bernice King? To have the children of Martin Luther King on stage, says something important too. Besides the fact that they were friends, they also had to deal with “The System” and their ways to get rid of those that wanted peace in this world.

 


 

 

Sheila Jackson Lee

 


 

I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and I hale from Houston Texas but I come to you on behalf of the many members of the United State’s House of Representatives. I come to you on behalf of the Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman Barbara Lee, a Californian. And I come to you as every man and every woman for I cannot write music, or dance or sing but I do know an American story. To Mr. and Mrs. Jackson and his wonderful families of brothers and sisters and cousins, to Michael, Joseph, to Katherine and Paris, Prince, all of these wonderful, beautiful symbols of America. And I can tell you as a member of the United States Congress. We understand the Constitution. We understand Laws and we know that people are innocent until proven otherwise. That is what the Constitution stands for. So I mourn today, I come too to thank you. For many people don’t understand the heats of entertainers. They don’t know how big their hearts are. They don’t know how they heal the world on behalf of America. When we’re at war our icons like Michael sing about healing the world and so he called us into public service. It did not matter whether we were black or white. He even told us to beat it, beat the violence. He told us to look at yourself in the mirror because it meant that if you were going to make a difference look at the man or woman in the mirror. I come to you today to say thank you. Some of you come from all faiths and we respect that here in America. But there is a story whose theme is so symbolic of this young and beautiful man. I love the story of the Good Samaritan because it talks about those who walk by the diminished, the devastated and the poor. This was a broken and beaten man lying along the road. No one stopped except someone called the Samaritan. It could be in any faith. It’ all about charity and love and I call Michael Jackson the Good Samaritan. I call him Michael Jackson who cared and loved for the world. It bothered me, I grew up with him as all of us and so many did. And so what an honor and a privilege to see him up close. When he came to the United States Congress in my office and looked some 15 African ambassadors, representatives of heads of states. Sitting in an office listening to Michael Jackson talk about caring and fighting HIV Aids. They looked at him, he had a twinkle, they listened, he listened. What a miraculous experience to be able to listen and see Michael in action. You know there were words cast about but I wonder if anybody was on his shoulder when he walked into Walter Reed Hospital and he walked along the aisles and the rows in the hospital rooms. This was in the mist of the Iraq War, doctors stopped, nurses stopped, and individual solders who had lost limbs stopped and were in essence moved and touched as Michael was by his desire to come and thank them for their sacrifices. So don’t tell me what an American story is all about; it is assault of the earth. With this family took the talent that God had given them and made it into a miraculous and wonderful story for America. I come today for you to recognize that the flag flies and the people who have spoken have spoken to the people’s house. They recognize and they speak and those of us who serve in elected office we respond to the people. Michael fought for the tolerance of all people. In fact I am reminded although I speak in the tongues of all faith that Michael fought the good fight. He was someone who understood and I hope Mr. and Mrs. Jackson and the family will know that the lord is our shepherd and we shall not want. Michael Jackson you got to know his story and it has not been told by all of what you’ve heard. He was someone who understood if he was burned, he built a burn unit. If a hospital needed beds, he built those beds. If they needed money for developing countries, Michael gave. If he was in…he went to orphanages. Michael never stopped giving and he touched those whose lives could be reconstructed, because the king, yes the king, the king stopped and said I care about you. That is why on the House floor on January 25, 2009 congressional black caucus and members of the House of Representatives stopped, stopped, stopped and had a moment of silence for this wonderful legend and icon. And so to the family let me simply come and someone that wishes she was long lost Sheila Jackson Lee but I’ll keep looking and seeing by coming to say to you that America appreciates and thanks you for Michael Jackson’s life. For that reason we have introduced into the House of Representatives this resolution 600 that will debate on the floor of the house that claims Michael Jackson as an American Legend and musical icon a world humanitarian. Someone who will be honored forever and forever and forever and forever and forever. We are the world and we are better because Michael Joseph Jackson lived. On behalf of myself and the people who have spoken, Michael Jackson, I salute you.

 

As we know now, this resolution did not make it. Congressman Peter King even had to say this about it:

 


 

“Let’s knock out the psychobabble. He was a pervert, a child molester, he was a pedophile. And to be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country? I just think we’re too politically correct. No one wants to stand up and say we don’t need Michael Jackson. He died, he had some talent, fine. There’s men and women dying every day in Afghanistan. Let’s give them the credit they deserve.”

 

Who the f*** is he to talk like that? Let me tell y’all, this guy is fishy as hell and a first class racist. He requires some more investigation.

 


 

 

Usher performs “Gone Too Soon”

 


 

Like a comet

Blazing ‘cross the evening sky

Gone too soon

 

Like a rainbow

Fading in the twinkling of an eye

Gone too soon

 

Shiny and sparkly

And splendidly bright

Here one day

Gone one night

 

Like the loss of sunlight

On a cloudy afternoon

Gone too soon

 

Like a castle

Built upon a sandy beach

Gone too soon

 

Like a perfect flower

That is just beyond your reach

Gone too soon

 

Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight

Here one day

Gone one night

 

Like a sunset

Dying from the raising moon (original lyrics: Dying with the rising of the moon)

Gone too soon

Gone too soon

 

Dying from the raising moon? That’s an odd change, so we googled: ‘Meaning of raising moon’, which brought us a song: “Bad Moon Rising”. It’s about the end of the world… Here are the lyrics, you must admit they are pretty interesting. Coincidence? Don’t think so…

 

Bad Moon Rising

 

I see a bad moon a-rising

I see trouble on the way

I see earthquakes and lightnin’

I see bad times today

 

Don’t go around tonight

Well, it’s bound to take your life

There’s a bad moon on the rise

 

I hear hurricanes a-blowing

I know the end is coming soon

I fear rivers over flowing

I hear the voice of rage and ruin

 

Don’t go around tonight

Well, it’s bound to take your life

There’s a bad moon on the rise

 

All right!

 

Hope you got your things together

Hope you are quite prepared to die

Looks like were in for nasty weather

One eye is taken for an eye

 

Don’t go around tonight

Well, it’s bound to take your life

There’s a bad moon on the rise

 

Don’t go around tonight

Well, it’s bound to take your life

There’s a bad moon on the rise

 

Why Usher? First of all Usher is a child star too, starting to perform at age eleven. But because we have heard more about Usher, like the Usher dancers. The dancers wore the same jacket as Marlon did during the Pepsi ‘accident’. Also, the father of Judy Garland, a mind control victim, was accused of making sexual advances towards ushers:

 

Childhood and early life

Born Frances Ethel Gumm in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, Judy Garland was the youngest child of Francis Avent “Frank” Gumm (March 20, 1886–November 17, 1935) and Ethel Marion Milne (November 17, 1893–January 5, 1953). Garland’s parents were vaudevillians who settled in Grand Rapids to run a movie theatre that featured vaudeville acts. Garland’s ancestry on both sides of her family can be traced back to the early colonial days of the United States. Her father was descended from the Marable family of Virginia, and her mother from Patrick Fitzpatrick, who emigrated to America in the 1770s from Smithtown, County Meath, Ireland. Named after both her parents and baptized at a local Episcopal church, “Baby” (as Frances was called by her parents and sisters) shared her family’s flair for song and dance. Baby Gumm’s first appearance came at the age of two-and-a-half when she joined her two older sisters, Mary Jane “Suzy” Gumm (1915–64) and Dorothy Virginia “Jimmie” Gumm (1917–77), on the stage of her father’s movie theater during a Christmas show and sang a chorus of “Jingle Bells.”Accompanied by their mother on piano, The Gumm Sisters performed at their father’s theater for the next few years. Following rumors that Frank Gumm had made sexual advances toward male ushers at his theater, the family relocated to Lancaster, California, in June 1926. Frank purchased and operated another theater in Lancaster, and Ethel, acting as their manager, began working to get her daughters into motion pictures.

 


 

 

We now hear little Mike sing “Who’s loving you”

 


 

 

Smokey Robinson

 


 

I wrote that song. I thought I sang it. I wrote that song back in…and um 2 years later here comes this little kid and he’s 10 years old. Berry had this gathering at his house. He said come I want you to see someone very special so I go over there and these five young guys are there. And they sang and danced up a storm. A couple weeks later they recorded my song. And I heard it. I thought to myself…now they have pulled a fast one on us because this boy cannot possibly be 10 years old. This song is about somebody who has somebody who loved him but they treated him bad. They treated him so bad until they lost them. And now they are paying the price of wanting somebody back that they treated bad and lost. How could he possibly know these things? I quickly went over to him because I wanted to see his birth certificate. I did not believe that someone that young could have that much feeling and soul and knowing. Knowing, he had a lot of knowing. He had to know something to sing that song like that. It was wonderful thought. As a song writer man that’s a dream come true to have somebody sing one of your songs like that. I never thought I would be here on today. This is my little brother over there. And you just don’t think you’re going to see or you’ll live to see him gone. But he will never really be gone. He is going to live forever and ever and ever and ever. He has made an enormous impact on all of our lives all over the world. I have young kids coming up to me now; when I do concerts I sing Whose Loving You at concerts and young kids who were at the concert come up to me and say hey you’re singing Michael Jackson’s song huh. But he will live on forever. I am a firm believer in blessings and I have had so many, many blessings in my life. One of my greatest blessings was I got a chance to know the Jackson family and to know Michael. And to see him. I’m glad I lived in an era where I got to see what everybody has been coming up here saying, the greatest entertainer of all time. I’m glad that I lived in this era. I believe so much in God. I believe so much that this is not it. We have life after this is done. So my brother is in a place now where he is most certainly going to live forever in the year after. So he’s going to live forever twice because he’s going to live forever right here because the world will never ever forget Michael Jackson. I love you my brother. I celebrate your life. I am proud that I had a chance to know you. God bless you.

 

First of all, Smokey wrote that song in 1960, he might have forgotten that, but we looked it up. 2 Years later Mike was not 10, but 2 years old, not able to perform yet. Nothing strange, just to point out that apparently people are nervous and watching their words.

 

Why Smokey Robinson? Being one of the primary figures associated with Motown Records, second only to the company’s founder, Berry Gordy, there is nothing further to look for in our opinion. He worked with Mike for years.

 


 

 

Shaheen Jafargholi

 


 

 

Shaheen Jafargholi performs “Who’s Loving You”

 

When I had you

I treated you bad and wrong my dear

And since, since you been away (original lyrics: And since, since you been gone)

 

Don’t you know I sit around

With my head hanging down

And I wonder who’s lovin’ you

 

I,I,I,I should have never, ever

ever made you cry

And and girl since

since you been gone

 

Don’t you know I sit around

With my head hanging down

And I wonder who’s lovin’ you

 

Life with out love, huh…

It’s oh so lonely

I don’t think, I don’t think! I’m gonna make it

 

All my life, all my life baby yeah I’ve been lost to you only

Come on & take it girl

Come on & take it, because….

All, all I can do, all I can do since you’ve been gone is cry

And don’t you ever wonder or worry your head of what i do

 

Don’t you know I sit around

With my head hanging down

And I wonder who’s lovin’ you

 

ooooah ooooah hooooooooooooo yeaah aaaaaa aaa aaaaaaa aaa wonder who’s lovin’

yooooooooooooooooou

 

I just want to say I love Michael Jackson and I tell you now I just want to thank him so much for blessing me and every single individual on this earth with his amazing music. And just thank you very much, I love you Michael Jackson.

 

Not ‘gone’ but away? Interesting how all the lyrics have been changed at the memorial 😉 The bold part and the bridge were left out.

 

Why Shaheen Jafargholi? As far as we know Mike saw him perform and loved him. Being watched by over one billion people, we think he just helped him into the saddle by letting him perform.

 


 

 

Kenny Ortega

 


 

My name is Kenny Ortega…thank you and I was Michael’s partner in the creating and directing of many of his tours including This Is It. And Shaheen was invited by Michael to join him in London for the show so I just wanted to introduce him to everybody and to say thank you for coming all the way here to join us today Shaheen. We were here, we were right here a little less than a week ago and Michael was with us. And the band, and Michael Bearden, and the singers and the dancers and our choreographer and our crew, we were all here and we were a family. This was our house. So when the Jackson family and Randy Philips asked Ken and I to help put together this memorial we knew we had to do it here. We knew we had to invite the world to join us here in Michael’s house. We were immediately surrounded by countless family, artists and friends and dear hearts who unconditionally made this day possible. As we came together as a team we knew we had to celebrate Michael’s life through his music as well as commemorate his passing. Both Ken and I worked with Michael over the years and Michael and I were here in the final final stages of mounting what we all knew and we all saw, I promise you, was his triumphant return to the world. It was also I think his greatest personal work. We did it all right here in this place, the Staples. So before we conclude today’s memorial, we wanted to present a performance from the London This is It concerts, the fans have been asking for it. This was one of Michael’s very very favorite moments in the show, always. He created this and brought it to life. It is a living testament of his ability to be timeless and time lead. Musical and magical. This is for him, his living legacy. His care, his heart, his concern about our planet, about the human condition. Michael Jackson will live in our hearts for always. Heal the world, make this a better place for our children, for our children’s children. Michael, we love you more, join us.

 

Well Kenny has always interesting things to say. “We were here, we were right here a little less than a week ago and Michael was with us.” Well Kenny that is quite hard when you are supposed to be all stiff in your casket. Maybe he meant they were there to rehearse the memorial? Well at least thank you Kenny, we love your slip-ups.

 

Also he says that the following songs were Mike’s favorite moments. Two songs that stand for what he has been fighting for in his life. WE are the world. “Let us realize that a change can only come

When we stand together as one”. Heal the world, make it a better place.

 

Why Kenny Ortega? Well, that’s quite obvious.

 


 

 

“We Are The World”

 

There comes a time when we heed a certain call

When the world must stand together as one (original lyrics: come)

There are people dying

and its time to lend a hand to life

There greatest gift of all

 

We cant go on pretending day by day

That someone, somewhere will soon make a change

We are all a part of Gods great big family

And the truth, you know,

Love is all we need

 

We are the world, we are the children

We are the ones who make a brighter day

So lets start giving

There’s a choice we’re making

We’re saving our own lives

its true we’ll make a better day

Just you and me

 

Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares

And their lives will be stronger and free

As God has shown us by turning stones to bread

So we all must lend a helping hand

 

We are the world, we are the children

We are the ones who make a brighter day

So lets start giving

There’s a choice we’re making

We’re saving our own lives

its true we’ll make a better day

Just you and me

 

When you’re down and out, and there’s no hope at all (original lyrics: there seems)

But if you just believe there’s no way you can fall (original lyrics: we)

Let us realize that a change will only come (original lyrics: can)

When we stand together as one

 

We are the world, we are the children

We are the ones who make a brighter day

So lets start giving

There’s a choice we’re making

We’re saving our own lives

its true we’ll make a brighter day (original lyrics: better)

Just you and me

(repeats)

 

 

Again the lyrics are changed, and the cold part was left out. It’s interesting it’s that particular part, since we know the lyrics of that verse were changed in the 2010 version of we are the world, because this part is associated with the Devil tempting Jesus.

 

There are words from the song on the screen. Kenny says it’s Mike’s favorite moment of the show, which means we should pay attention to it.

 

The words are:

 

A CERTAIN CALL

 

TOGETHER

AS ONE

 

GREATEST GIFT OF ALL

 

MAKE A CHANGE

 

GOD’S GREAT

BIG FAMILY

 

TRUTH

 

LOVE

ALL WE NEED

 

WE ARE THE WORLD

 

WE ARE THE CHILDREN

 

START

GIVING

 

CHOICE

 

YOU AND ME

 

DOWN

DOWN

DOWN

DOWN

 

JUST

BELIEVE

 

NO WAY

 

FALL

 

CHANGE

CAN ONLY COME

 

WE

STAND

TOGETHER

ONE

 

WE ARE THE WORLD

 

WE ARE THE CHILDREN

 

Well, that’s a clear message, isn’t it?

 


 

 

“Heal The World”

 

There’s a place in your heart

And I know that it is love

And this place

can be much brighter than tomorrow. (original lyrics: could)

 

And if you really try

You’ll find there’s no need to cry

In this place

You’ll feel there’s no hurt or sorrow.

 

There are ways to get there

If you care enough for the living

Make a little space, make a better place.

 

Heal the world

Make it a better place

For you and for me and the entire human race

There are people dying

If you care enough for the living

Make a better place

for you and for me.

 

If you want to know why

There’s a love that cannot lie

Love is strong

It only cares for joyful giving.

 

If we try we shall see

In this bliss we cannot feel

Fear or dread

We stop existing and start living

 

Then it feels that always

Love’s enough for us growing

Make a better world, make a better world.

 

Heal the world

Make it a better place

For you and for me and the entire human race.

There are people dying

If you care enough for the living

Make a better place for

You and for me.

 

And the dream we would conceived in

Will reveal a joyful face

And the world we once believed in

Will shine again in grace

Then why do we keep strangling life

Wound this earth, crucify it’s soul

Though it’s plain to see, this world is heavenly

Be God’s glow.

 

We could fly so high

Let our spirits never die

In my heart

I feel you are all my brothers

 

Create a world with no fear

Together we’ll cry happy tears

See the nations turn

Their swords into plowshares

 

We could really get there

If you care enough for the living

Make a little space to make a better place.

 

Heal the world

Make it a better place

For you and for me and the entire human race

There are people dying

If you care enough for the living

Make a better place

for you and for me.

 

Heal the world

Make it a better place

For you and for me and the entire human race

There are people dying

If you care enough for the living

Make a better place

for you and for me.

 

Heal the world

Make it a better place

For you and for me and the entire human race

There are people dying

If you care enough for the living

Make a better place

for you and for me.

 

There are people dying

if you care enough for the living

Make a better place for you and for me.

There are people dying

if you care enough for the living

Make a better place for you and for me.

 

You and for me / Make a better place

You and for me / Make a better place

You and for me / Make a better place

You and for me / Heal the world we live in

You and for me / Save it for our children

You and for me / Heal the world we live in

You and for me / Save it for our children

You and for me / Heal the world we live in

You and for me / Save it for our children

You and for me / Heal the world we live in

You and for me / Save it for our children

 


 

Ending with these songs says it all. We are the world, we should make it a better place, but we need to make a fist. The bold part was left ou, most likely because of time.

 

 

Jermaine & Marlon Jackson

 


 

Jermaine:

 

Fans, friends, nieces, nephews, sisters, brothers, I’d like to thank everyone for coming out. As you know I’m lost for words. I was his voice and his back bone. I had his back, so did the family. But we thank you, that’s all I can say, we thank you very much.

 

On the screen a little joke from Mike: “Okay guys, that’s a wrap”

 


 

Marlon:

 

I hurt. I stand here trying to find words of comfort, trying to understand why the lord has taken our brother to return home from such a short visit here on earth. Michael, when you left us a part of me went with you and a part of you will live forever within me but also a part of you will life forever within all of us. Michael I will treasure the good times, the fun we had singing, dancing, and laughing. I could remember when we come home from school and we would grab a quick bite to eat and we’d try to watch the three stooges as much of it as possible before said it would come and say it’s time to go to the recording studio. I also Michael remember a time when I went in the record store and there was this man purchasing a lot of cds. And he would go and grab another batch of cds. He was an older gentleman, he had short afro but crooked teeth, his clothes were rumpled. I walked up behind him and said: “Michael, what are you doing in this store?”. He turned to me and said: “Marlon, how did you know it was me?”. I told him: “You are my brother, I can spot you anywhere regardless of your make-up. I know your walk, I know your body language and those shoes did not help.” Michael wore the same shoes wherever we went. But I guess that was his way of trying to experience what we take for granted. We would never, never understand what he endured. Not being able to walk across the street, without a crowd gathering around him. Being judged, ridiculed. How much pain can one take? Maybe now Michael, the will leave you alone. Michael was the voice of our angelic trumpets. And he will continue to be the voice, that angelic voice, in heaven. Nearest to our creator. And waiting us, when our day comes to pass. Michael I love you, I will miss… When we said our goodbyes I would hug you and say I love you and your response was: “I love you more”. You know the lord has a purpose for everything. And sometime we just can’t see it, or understand it. But it will be made clear to us, when we reach that ultimate, ultimate reward of being in His presence. Michael you’re there, you’re right there. You have finished your work here on earth and the Lord has called for you to come home with Him. So I thank you Michael, I thank you for all the smiles that you placed in many people’s hearts. And I thank you for anything you have done for others, across this globe, in the Lord’s name. And I have one request Michael, one request. I would like for you to give our brother, my twin brother Brandon, a hug for me. I love you Michael and I’ll miss you.

The interesting part is where he mentions Mike and his disguises. In our opinion there is a big chance we have seen Mike on screen the last months much more often as we might think. Also he says Mike always wore the same shoes, wherever they went. So I guess we need to watch some shoes 😉

Also interesting is him addressing his twin, Brandon (uhm.. Maron Brando(n)?. We will not go into this further, because we have shared our thoughts on this already, and we all know what this caused.

 


 

 

Paris Jackson

 


 

I just wanted to say, ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just wanted to say, I love him so much.

‘Has been’, like someone already mentioned on the forum, ‘has been’ means something like ‘always was and still is’.

 


 

 

The casket is being carried away by the brothers and Man in the Mirror is played without lyrics.

 


 


 

I’m gonna make a change, for once in my life

It’s gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference

Gonna make it right…

 

As I, turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat

This wind is blowin’ my mind

I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat

Who am I, to be blind?

Pretending not to see their needs

A summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top

And a one man’s soul

They follow each other on the wind ya’ know

‘Cause they got no where to go

That’s why I want you to know

 

I’m starting with the man in the mirror

I’m asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

If you wanna make the world a better place

(If you wanna make the world a better place)

Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)

 

(Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah)

 

I’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love

It’s time that I realize

That there are some with no home, not a nickle to loan

Could it be really me, pretending that they’re not alone?

 

A willow deeply scarred, somebody’s broken heart

And a washed-out dream

(Washed out dream)

They follow the pattern of the wind, ya’ see

‘Cause they got no place to be

That’s why I’m starting with me (br> (Starting with me)

 

I’m starting with the man in the mirror

I’m asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

If you wanna make the world a better place

(If you wanna make the world a better place)

Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)

 

I’m starting with the man in the mirror

I’m asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

If you wanna make the world a better place

(If you wanna make the world a better place)

Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)

 

I’m starting with the man in the mirror

I’m asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

(If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself, and then make a change)

(You gotta get it right, while you got the time, couse when you close you’re heart, then you close your mind)

 

I’m starting with the man in the mirror

I’m asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

If you wanna make the world a better place

(If you wanna make the world a better place)

Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)

 

Make that change.
