The Schleiters remember Michael Jackson in AKTE documentary

June 26, 2020

The AKTE documentary about the Schleiter family and their friendship with Michael Jackson aired on German TV sometime in January this year, but its English version was made available to us only recently, thanks to AlfonsMeir who uploaded it here.

The Schleiter family

Many of us have probably not heard of the Schleiters except their emphatic “Enough is enough” letter in support of Michael Jackson as previously they never spoke to the press.

I encourage everyone to read the letter and watch the documentary as the latter is quite accurate in describing Michael Jackson’s tribulations beginning with 1993 (except the wrong age of the accuser and some minor details) and covers almost everything up to Martin Bashir’s film and La Toya’s various performances in this or that attire for and against her brother.

Anyone can watch the documentary themselves to form an opinion, but your impression will not be full if you don’t know what is insinuated about Anton Schleiter by Michael’s detractors.  In fact it is the comparison between these freaks’ innuendoes and the truth which is a real eye-opener here.

For example, a “MJandboys” site made a post about Anton Schleiter in November 2016 following the usual pattern – all attention is certainly on the boy who is called a “special friend” of MJ while the boy’s sister Franziska is certainly ignored and is totally non-existent for the writers. Here is a sample:

Michael Jackson and Anton Schleiter (1995-2006)

 “Whenever Michael Jackson toured the world, he used the possibility to make a new young male friend. Those boys are known to the public as special friends, but a few boys are simply overlooked. …Anton was one of the many boys whom Jackson befriended during the 1990s, but he never got the attention by the media that most of Jackson’s young friends receive, although he was very close friends with Jackson.

It was November 1995, when Michael Jackson performed at a German TV show called “Wetten dass…?”. MJ met 12-year-old Anton Schleiter backstage. Anton became a special friend of Jackson after meeting him and started to spend time with Jackson on a regular basis.”

And this is what the AKTE documentary tells us about the way the Schleiters befriended Michael Jackson:

02:55 Hamburg Niendorf, at the forest border there is an unremarkable one family house that made history almost 15 years ago (in 2006) because back then superstar Michael Jackson lived and slept for multiple weeks in this house. Here he spent carefree days with the Schleiter family including their children Franziska and Anton, today aged 34 and 36 (so in 2006 they were 20 and 22 years old respectively). Private videos remind them of an unforgettable time with their world-famous friend.

03:31 (Anton) “The personal time with Michael was – I mean when we just talked or played games – he was simply a great person and so loving/caring that you felt so comfortable…. Everything else became irrelevant. That’s just how it was. [It was like] coincidentally our best friend Michael was also the superstar Michael Jackson”.

 (Franziska) “The best time was actually when he came to our house. This was the best time.”

 (Anton) “This was so exciting and great as a kid, but later it was true friendship.”

Actually the Schleiters met Michael Jackson 25 years ago (in 1995, when Anton was 13 and Franziska was 11 respectively) and this is how Franziska describes the first time they met Michael Jackson:

04:27 (Franziska) “My father worked in the music industry and he had to go to “Wetten Dass…?” [1995] and Anton learned that Michael would also be there. So we as a family decided to go there too, like a family trip and to see Michael live.

We were also backstage and Anton and me had our tickets and we wanted to have an autograph. Our father said “Now or never”. I was so scared. But in the end I followed my father’s advice and we went to him and got an autograph”.

Back then we thought this would be the biggest thing that can ever happen that we met him and got an autograph. But then it appeared that he asked through his managers if we wanted to join him to Phantasialand [amusement park] the next day.  He invited us and we spent the day together. And this was such a wonderful day. We couldn’t believe it and said “Wow, we spent a day with Michael Jackson!” This was incredible.

Franziska and Anton are sitting in front of Michael Jackson, and MJ is sitting with two small girls (all screenshots are from the documentary)

And then we were so lucky that he even called us the day after and from this point on the friendship developed. This is somehow… I’m still stunned when I’m saying this.”

 05:49 (voiceover) We are with the family at the Niendorfer Gehege, a forest park in West Hamburg. Here they spent a lot of time with their famous friend.

06:02 (Anton) ‘When he was with us he really liked it that he could be undercover /incognito.

(Franziska) “Michael wanted to be solely with us, no bodyguards and they [the bodyguards] said “Are you crazy? There are many things that can happen to you”. But this was exactly what he wanted, escaping from everything, to be himself and being with us like a normal person, spending time as if there wasn’t this hectic around him”.

06:42 The Schleiters never wanted to comment on the private moments in public.

(Wolfgang, father): “The situation today is different – after the new accusations were made, which are so shabby, and he himself cannot speak anymore.

And personally, what hurts me most is that his children have to experience how their father is dragged through the mud. And that’s probably the time that we have to raise our hand. We usually avoided it also in the sense of Michael’s wish to keep it private and we gladly respected it, also posthumously. But now it is a different situation.  And I know that others also raise their hands to speak up for Jackson. I think it is a good thing that now there are also completely different voices coming and we gladly line up with them”.

In the meantime the “MJandboys” keep their own record of Anton Schleiter’s activities. 

“Jackson returned to Germany, because of the HIStory world tour and 14-year-old Anton became his constant companion throughout the whole country.

1997, Bremen: The teen was even seen disappearing into Jackson’s hotel, along with MJ.  In 1997, Jackson stayed about three weeks in Germany. Anton was alone with him for nearly a month, from which you can draw the conclusion that Jackson liked the kid. Their time together was very special to Jackson, they inspired him to write the romantic song “Speechless”.

Why didn’t it seem weird to anyone that Jackson was inspired by a 14-year-old boy to write Speechless?

The above is a myth while the AKTE documentary describes the true circumstances under which “Speechless” came into being:

1:23:54 Franziska and Anton show us exclusive videos, recorded in private moments with Michael Jackson, like a water balloon fight in the family’s garden.  Moments that they describe as the best in their lives. Therefore we were allowed to watch the videos, but not to show them publicly.   

(Reporter) “Is this Michael Jackson laughing?” (everyone laughs)

The Schleiters still feel so close to Michael Jackson that they want to protect their friendship with the superstar. The relationship was so close that Jackson dedicated a song to them after the water balloon fight: “Speechless”:

“Special thanks to Anton and Franziska… I love you with all my heart, Michael Jackson”.

1:24:53 (Anton) “We didn’t notice it, he just went upstairs to change his clothes because he was soaking wet. He was upstairs in his room for an hour and then he came downstairs and was all smiles that he had written a really great song. Because he was having the most fun he’s had in a long time”.

So the song wasn’t about the boy, but about the long-forgotten feeling of carefree happiness Michael experienced for the first time in several years amid much fun and much laugh with two other carefree water balloon fighters. Inspiration is like that – it may come at most unexpected moments in your life, like “Speechless” came to Michael Jackson and could remind him of a woman he loved, or more probably inspired him to a prayer to God:

Your love is magical, that’s how I feel
But I have not the words here to explain
Gone is the grace for expressions of passion
But there are worlds and worlds of ways to explain
To tell you how I feel

But I am speechless, speechless
That’s how you make me feel
Though I’m with you I am far away
And nothing is for real

When I’m with you I am lost for words
I don’t know what to say
My head’s spinning like a carousel
So silently I pray

Helpless and hopeless
That’s how I feel inside
Nothing’s real, but all is possible
If God is on my side

When I’m with you I am in the light where I cannot be found
It’s as though I am standing in the place called Hallowed Ground

Speechless, speechless
That’s how you make me feel
Though I’m with you I am far away
And nothing is for real

I’ll go anywhere
And do anything
Just to touch your face
There’s no mountain high
I cannot climb
I’m humbled in your grace

Speechless, speechless
That’s how you make me feel
Though I’m with you I am lost for words
And nothing is for real

Speechless, speechless
That’s how you make me feel
(You’re always on my mind)
Though I’m with you I am lost for words
And nothing is for real
Speechless

Your love is magical, that’s how I feel
But in your presence I am lost for words
Words like—like “I love you”

“Your love is magical – I am with you and I am far away – helpless and hopeless, but all is possible if God is on my side – when I’m with you I don’t know what to say – You are always on my mind – I’m humbled in your grace” …..

Gone is the time when Michael could pray with the words of passion – now he prays silently, having no words to express his feelings in such moments of sheer happiness when all he feels is that he is standing in the light .

If anything the song could be the expression of Michael’s gratitude to God that even in the most torturous years of his life he is not abandoned by the Almighty – who once again reminded him of His presence by giving him a chance to feel like a happy, cheerful and carefree child in the company of two kids.

Or it could be a remembrance of a woman whose love can also be magical. Why a woman (and not what Michael’s detractors will suggest to you)?

In the documentary Bill Whitfield, Michael’s personal bodyguard since 2006, same as many other people close to Jackson, did not have a moment of doubt about Michael’s attachments and said that he was ‘into women’.

52:47 (Whitfield)” I got to know Mr. Jackson quite well. I have been working in personal security for 25 years and one of the things you do in this business is to keep a close eye on the client. You know what the person likes, what he doesn’t like. And I’ve watched Mr. Jackson enough to know that hurting children – he wasn’t into that. Women. He was into women.

(voiceover) That’s what the Schleiters say too.

53:32 (Anton) “Of course, the media liked to report that Michael and I somehow had a relationship., that there was a love relationship. But of course, that’s not true. The media always wanted to connect Michael with little boys, so they had some fun writing this, for whatever reason.

Michael wasn’t just friends with me, he was friends with the whole family. And they always reduced it to me when it came to our friendship, but it wasn’t true at all.

I have been with my wife since 2001, and she was also there [with MJ] many times. There was no love relationship between Michael and me. I had a love relationship with my wife”.

Today Anton and his wife have two little children.

55:05 (Whitfield) “We had normal guy talk. When we as bodyguards were in the car with Mr. Jackson and a nice young woman walked by, he’d say something like ‘Wow, she is pretty”.

55:19 (Brad Buxer): “The type of women that he loved were South American women, with dark skin. I don’t want to get too personal, that would be weird. He likes the girls in Brazil. That was his favorite type of girl”.

However according to the time-honored tradition people like the “MJand boys” know better. They habitually  see only the boy by Michael’s side ignoring his sister even when the girl looks out of the hotel window together with  her brother and MJ:

“Jackson visited Anton in Germany for six years until 2006. FurthermoreAnton also travelled with Jackson to other countries and shared his hotel rooms. Here are some pictures of them in France (1997). They stayed friends. In 1999, 16-year-old Anton Schleiter was also seen at Jackson’s side regularly. This is a picture of them in a hotel room.

During the same year, Michael Jackson visited Disneyland in Paris. His travel companion was 16-year-old Anton Schleiter.

Michael Jackson’s detractors are either mad or half-blind – otherwise how is it possible to overlook the sister in those photos though she is always by her brother’s side and see only two people in the window when there are three people there (MJ, Anton and Franziska)?

On the other hand the freaks’ personal deformities enable them to see things in the Schleiters’ private videos which are simply not there. Here is an example.

Anton visited Neverland many times. There is a video filmed in Switzerland in 2000. From 12:40 until 14:00, Jackson is filming a young man who is holding his two kids. He goes down with his camera several times and it seems like he is checking out the guy’s butt. This guy is Anton Schleiter. He was 17 years old in that video. And as I already mentioned, Jackson is checking out his butt between 12:40 and 14:00.

Exclusive! Michael Jackson 100% New Rare private home videos with his kids #2

Okay, let’s watch the video if they insist on it. However when we look beyond the required 12:40-14:00 time frame we begin to realize that the video was recorded by Franziska and not by Michael Jackson. The distortion is not a surprise though – if she doesn’t exist for these people how could she record the video then?

Franziska and Paris in the same episode

The episode starts with Michael Jackson going out into the garden where he makes a few dance moves and Anton takes a picture of him, while Franziska is video recording both of them.

Prince starts crying and calls his father, so Michael reenters the house, and then leaves through another door to take off the coat he is wearing over his pajama.

Anton puts both children on the window-sill while Franziska continues to film them, moving her camera up and down. At some point we hear Michael’s voice asking the children to look back and upon hearing his voice they turn their faces to the camera. Then Anton carefully puts them on the floor and that is all.

Michael’s detractors must be super biased or super perverse to interpret so innocent and beautiful an episode as “MJ checking out the guy’s butt”.

Something is definitely not right with these guys and their fixed ideas about MJ…

As to their innuendoes about Anton Schleither here he is personally handling them in the AKTE documentary:

1:09:35 (Anton) “I never slept in a bed with Michael and he never even once touched me inappropriately”.

1:09:48 (voiceover) The Schleiter family from Hamburg was often invited to visit their friend Michael Jackson at the Neverland ranch, spent a lot of time there with the megastar. 

1:10:10 (Anton) “I never slept in a bed with Michael and that was never his wish or mine. This was never under consideration. We always had our own rooms.”

“It was never like Safechuck said here now, that you stayed with him and the family somewhere else. It was nothing like that. There were guest houses and there we were accommodated as a family and Michael was in his bedroom.

According to the press I’m exactly the kind of guy Michael would be after. I was a boy and spent a lot of time with Michael. But the press always presented it in a way that I spent a lot of time with Michael, even though it was us as a family”

There was never anything like this, he never even once touched me inappropriately. Nothing. He was simply like the dearest uncle one could ever imagine”

1:11:38 (Dieter Wisner, MJ’s manager) “We were at the ranch, there were different situations in the evening with several children, the nephews, people who were close to him. Then they were lying in the room with Michael on the floor. They sat on the bed and had tea with honey and so on, and read.

He did not lie in bed with them and then slept, it was just a room they felt comfortable in. There was nothing sexual, nothing like that! Complete nonsense”.

The AKTE documentary says that Anton and Franziska confirm “the closeness between the superstar and the children and that both experienced the close relationship with Michael Jackson was an exciting adventure”

27:30 (Anton) “When it came to the situation that you slept in one room, then Michael lay down on the floor, on a mattress , or on the couch.

Actually, it wasn’t even Michael who requested to stay overnight. When it happened it was us asking him because we wanted to watch movies together.”

“And you made yourselves comfortable. During the day we all threw ourselves in bed with our parents together, and we all lay there.”

The Schleiters were indeed very close to Michael Jackson but not the way those “MJandboys” mean it. The documentary says about the family:

1:22:40 (voiceover) Until Jackson’s death the Schleiters from Hamburg accompanied their friend for almost 15 years.  Jackson often brought his own children to the family. The Niendorfer Gehege (a forest park) was a place for everyone to relax. For a while Anton and Franziska have been like big siblings for Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket who have been suffering for years from the abuse accusations against their father.

1:23:17 (Anton) “It helped him a lot that he had his children. Children gave him a lot of strength. And the children loved their father more than anything. That was the greatest thing for him to have children of his own. Because he always loved children and when his dream came true to have his own children, that was the greatest thing for him. That gave him a lot of strength”.

1:23:41 (Wolfgang) “He was the best father you can imagine. No one could have known how Michael dealt with his children. He was with them day and night”.

As to Neverland, it turns out that Anton was the one who together with Michael’s nephew packed MJ’s belongings at the ranch when the trial was over as Michael refused to return there after the police desecrated his home:

1:18:00 (Anton) “After the police tore Neverland apart twice, slashing every pillow, it wasn’t his home anymore for Michael, he never wanted to go there again. Then Michael asked me and a nephew of his to pack all his things together. So I was there for a month and probably packed at least 2000 boxes. Full of all his things, from all the rooms.

We were there for a month, every day for at least ten hours and packed boxes. I found nothing reprehensible. If the FBI missed something, I would have found it, but there was nothing”.

The Schleiters also spoke about the trial:

40:00 (Wolfgang) “He knew he could always call us. He knew his phone calls were monitored, the prosecutor observed everything which is no secret any more given how communications are intercepted nowadays…. He said, ‘You don’t have to say anything, it is okay…”

40:28 (Anton) “We wrote him letters and through his managers he received them and afterwards he told us that he always was really happy when he received letters and that he always kept them with him. And that he regularly read them and I assume that it helped him too. We always said, “We believe in you” and “You can do it”, that we are behind you whatever happens, we will be there immediately and this helped him a lot.

The Schleiters visited him one last time a few weeks before his death.

42:57 (Franziska) “One of the first thoughts I had when he passed away, after the first shock, was really for me, who is saving the world now? This sounds so banal, but that symbolized Michael for me. I think a lot of people would never have thought of that at first, but as we knew him that was the Michael I knew, that he wanted good to the world and for the world”.

The makers of AKTE documentary let the Schleiter family watch “Leaving Neverland” and this was their reaction:

43:54 The Schleiters watch the documentary for the first time with us. 

Only after the new allegations of abuse in the TV documentary “Leaving Neverland” they want to express themselves and support their famous friend after his death. Because in the documentary two men report in detail how Michael Jackson allegedly sexually abused them as boys.

(Robson) He kissed me full open mouth, with his tongue in my mouth”.

Hearing what Robson claims in “Leaving Neverland” Wolfgang shakes his head and even laughs saying that he doesn’t want to watch this anymore.

(Wolgang) “I don’t wanna watch this anymore. This is utter bullshit”

(Franziska) starts crying: “Uhmm… sorry… can we stop it?”

(Wolfgang) “This is not Michael Jackson who is described in there… Never”

(Franziska) “From our perspective this isn’t possible, because we know a completely different person. And it’s so absurd to see this… I think”.

(Franziska) “This may be different for people who didn’t know him, because they don’t know how he was. They [the public] have to rely on opinions of others to get an idea of him. But for us, to see it from our perspective, this is too absurd. I cannot take it seriously”.

(Wolfgang) “It is staged like a feature film with the ‘human touch feeling’ that gets dragged into it. I think this is really shabby”.

(Anton) “It’s quite disgusting to see this. I don’t know what ….. to taint this wonderful place [Neverland]…. I think this is fiction”.

(Franziska) “I think it’s a difficult subject per se, that nobody – not us, but also nobody out there – has the right, uhm…. I mean victims don’t belong in a film, if anybody experienced such a thing, it belongs in court”.

Dieter Wiesner was similarly disgusted and was keen enough to notice that the two accusers are devoid of any emotion:

1:15:26 (Wiesner) “When I saw the first statements from the two men who were supposed to have experienced all this, I was simply shocked that someone has the cheek to go out and say something like that. Because when you look at it more closely, it is simply quite clear that it is told without any emotion. That just has not truth to it.

When you know Michael Jackson and hear the way they tell it, what happened it’s just unbearable

There is a lot more to the documentary as it also covers the various inconsistencies in “Leaving Neverland”; the love affair Robson had with Brandi Jackson (and cheated on her with Britney Spears) just at the time when he was supposed to be ‘in a relationship’ with MJ; the loving notes Michael regularly left to his nephew Taj Jackson and hundreds of his fans and not something unique for Robson and Safechuck; Dieter Wiesner telling us how Bashir staged the situation of Michael Jackson holding hands with Gavin Arvizo – he instructed them to sit down and asked Michael to put his arm around Gavin; Aphrodite Jones seeing Robson testify in support of Jackson and wondering what prevented him for telling his story when MJ was alive, and much, much more of it.

But when I asked myself what struck me most about the German documentary, the honest answer to myself even surprised me – it is the faces of all these people that make the most lasting effect of the documentary and seem to be telling the whole story.

It is the stone face of Wade Robson who is describing most disgusting things in a somewhat detached and technical manner:  “In the first week I was with him every night there was abuse”.

But there was no ‘”first week”, so consequently there was no “every night” and no “abuse”.

And then it is the smug expression on Ron Zonen’s face who says that “they had a sense of what Michael Jackson did with children when he was alone with them.”

Could someone please tell this person that “having a sense” is not enough for prosecuting someone for decades? And that he could have used his skills to catch real child predators of whom the LA area and particularly Hollywood abide. Or ask him if Corey Feldman gave the law enforcement enough “sense” of what was going on there when he spoke of his own molestation and named his abusers from Hollywood during the police interview about Jackson – to no reaction from the police?

I also recall the amazed Aphrodite Jones who had an amazed look on her face almost non-stop throughout the documentary: “And when he was acquitted I almost couldn’t believe what happened next: the whole media hype was gone in a heartbeat. At least 2000 journalists left the scene and …poof! They were gone”.

And when she researched the Arvizo case herself and realized that there was a conspiracy against Michael Jackson: “He didn’t do anything to these people. He helped them. They were liars, they were just liars. That’s when I had that moment of realizing. The jury got it right, the media was wrong”.

And her amazement at hearing Gavin Arvizo constantly change his testimony: “I was just thinking “You are lying through your teeth!”

And her account of Robson’s testimony: “I was in the courtroom when this man, this Robson, testified that Michael Jackson never did anything to him. He couldn’t wait to be called to the witness stand and testify under oath. And took the oath”.

I also remember the sad face of Thomas Mesereau when he recalled: “Sometimes Michael called me crying at night. Once he begged me not to drop the case if his enemies paid me millions of dollars. He said, ‘Tom, I know they will try it. Everyone wants to see me behind bars. I know, by enemies still try to bribe you”. So Michael did know that all of it was malicious prosecution, that he had enemies and they were ready to pay millions to get him behind bars.

I will also remember the face of Brad Buxer who nearly cried when he spoke of Michael Jackson’s children: “We’ve seen what Paris gone through because of the media. I mean we know what the children have to endure. In 2009 at the Staples Center, when Paris stood up there and told the world how much he loved her father. Jesus Christ, give them a break”.

And also the disturbed face of Taj Jackson who doesn’t worry about “Leaving Neverland” that much because he knows that it is full of lies, but is mostly annoyed that the US media does not report the multiple inconsistencies found there: “They have non-stop uncovered contradictions and inconsistencies and what annoys me most is that the American media have still not printed any of these errors.”

And also the determined face of Brandi Jackson who knows from her own intimate experience with Wade Robson that he is lying: “I just know that he is lying. There are so many lies in 4 hours, there are thousands. I could go through the whole list right now and expose every single lie. And none of these things add up.”

And the slimy face of Dan Reed who has the audacity to claim that he has “followed the rules of journalistic evidence” and that his film is about nothing else but “sexual actions that have taken place behind closed doors.”

But if it was behind closed doors and Reed didn’t see it, how can he be so sure that it is true? Even if he gives the accusers all the benefit of the doubt it will still be a fifty-fifty chance and in no way can be an affirmative statement.

No wonder his film got an award for ‘creativity’ – they couldn’t find any other nomination that could fit Dan Reed’s piece of fiction.

In fact even to the makers of AKTE documentary it is perfectly clear that Robson and Safechuck are liars, and the reason for it is very simple:

“The people who are accusing Jackson today are definitely liars. Now or before, because they tell a different story today than when Jackson was alive.”

And the documentary’s conclusion about the other side is also absolutely true and cannot be disputed:

“And the others who believe in his innocence, tell the same story all their lives.”

Actually, it is not only the same story told by the people who believe in Michael’s innocence which is so convincing, but it is also their faces which make the documentary so memorable.

When you see the Schleiter family and the way they remember Michael Jackson, it is the happiness their faces are radiating which convinces you most.

What JEFFREY EPSTEIN’s case tells us about the MEDIA and MICHAEL JACKSON

June 9, 2020

Hopefully some of you have already seen the ‘Filthy Rich’ Netflix series about pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and had a chance to think it over.

The documentary requires a comparison with Dan Reed’s ‘Leaving Neverland’ of course, but there is so big a difference in the standards of research for the two films that it is not even worth it.

One is a sloppy propaganda piece, while the other is a serious study of a horrible case and a horrible phenomenon. And how can you compare the two rogues spilling their fantasies about Michael Jackson without any proof, with the testimonies of Epstein’s victims supported by the documents, police and even the FBI 53-page indictment? The two cases are totally incomparable and are actually poles apart.

But if you do compare there are at least two factors that are drawing attention.

One is that the genuine victims in ‘Filthy Rich’ look unwilling to discuss the sexual crimes committed against them and are visibly reluctant to describe them in graphic detail. There are no juicy details in their accounts and when it is necessary to give some, the victims stop short, clearly hesitate and are still unable to utter it. Only one woman out of many in ‘Filthy Rich’ mentioned a sex toy used by Epstein but said it in so low a voice that it was barely heard, though this was one of his main tools of abusing minors.

Remember Robson & Safechuck who gleefully described in ‘Leaving Neverland’ the various ways they were allegedly abused by MJ as well as their occasional smiles and twinkling of the eye during descriptions?

What a dead give-away that they are lying! Their desire to tell it in so much graphic detail in order to look convincing shows that for their own selves their stories are cold and devoid of any emotion, and all their descriptions are just words not resonating with any feelings.

Real feeling is what you see in Epstein’s victims though they do try to look unemotional and calm.

Another thing that strikes you as a very big difference is that Epstein’s victims never changed their stories. What they initially said they repeated later, and what they repeated later they had been saying from the very beginning. And though initially most of them were unwilling to talk, when interviewed by the police all of them admitted that they were molested by Epstein. According to the police two of the girls claimed that they ‘loved’ Epstein and hoped to marry him, but the fact of molestation was not disputed even by them.

The only ones who still deny everything are Epstein’s accomplices – Ghislaine Maxwell and several other monstrous females who turned the sexual abuse of girls into their daily routine. By now they have changed their names and are unavailable for comment, but hopefully one day they will see their day of reckoning.

If we didn’t know Robson to be a liar he could easily qualify for the role of an accomplice and it would be an interesting turn to the matter, because if we are to believe his current story it means that when defending Michael Jackson at the 2005 trial he perjured himself and obstructed justice that way. But if he told the truth then, it means that now he is lying to extort the MJ Estate for money (initially a billion reduced to hundreds of millions by today). So whichever way you look at him the only place where Robson really belongs is prison, and not a TV show. Read more…

The Debate With a Hollywood Producer: MICHAEL JACKSON, PROJECT M and STEVEN SPIELBERG

March 15, 2020

The previous post was about a debate between a Hollywood producer scornful of Michael Jackson and our reader ‘luv4hutch’ who sent us the text of their discussion and asked for a comment; and also some facts regarding the role of David Geffen in the life of Laura Nyro and Donna Summer, same as Michael Jackson’s.

The ruin of their careers revealed exactly the same modus operandi and is pointing to the same person in their immediate surrounding who put a hand to their destruction.

Here is the continuation of the debate and we begin where we left off – with David Geffen, of course and Project M on making a Peter Pan movie supposedly with Michael Jackson in the main role. The whole thing was a fake as it was never meant to be realized, but the scheme was elaborate and multi-task and resulted in putting the blame for its failure on Steven Spielberg which put an end to his friendship with Michael Jackson.

My interest in the debate is the frame of mind of people in Hollywood, and getting new facts, if any, to further clarify the picture around Michael Jackson then and now. Read more…

What Michael Jackson, Laura Nyro & Donna Summer had in common: DAVID GEFFEN

March 2, 2020

Reader luv4hutch has sent us the summary of his debate with a friend about Michael Jackson and asked for a comment or post about it. And though our waiting list is already long, let it be another unexpected post that precedes everything else.

The person who goes as a “Producer” in the debate is a producer working in the entertainment industry. His views about Jackson are standard for the people of his trade – they were formed by very many years of listening to rumor and innuendo from the so-called reliable people in Hollywood, generating inflated stories and feeding on them too, and also some scraps of insider’s information which may be occasionally true. All of it has long cemented into their rock solid confidence that no one can possibly know more about Jackson and that everything to know about him is already there.And since these people see no need in learning anything new or fact-checking the earlier stories we can safely say that they got stuck in the past, in a sort of Stone Age with regard to Michael Jackson.

“Reader” is the initiator of the debate who is apparently sitting on the fence and is torn between his friend who seems to be so knowledgeable about Jackson and his own doubts in the veracity of claims about him.  His views are more or less typical of the present of Michael Jackson – which is still controversial and unclear for the majority of people.

And we here represent Michael Jackson’s future. After more than 10 years of research of every pro and con argument we are one hundred per cent certain that Michael Jackson was innocent and consider it only a matter of time when it becomes obvious to everyone else. This confidence arose from examining every story about Jackson and after finding nothing incriminating there we have moved on to explore the unchartered waters and the subjects of our interest now are somewhat bewildering to the uninitiated – like the role of a certain Victor Gutierrez or David Geffen in Michael Jackson’s fate, for example.

So the main difference between us is that we know everything they know, while they don’t have even a fraction of our knowledge. They think they possess some precious insiders’ information and do not understand that we have already dissected their knowledge into a million pieces and have discarded it all after examining it several times over, and are far ahead of these people now. So far ahead that it is actually a bore to go over it again and again.

However I will still make a comment on an issue that needs clarification and further research and is actually what our Friend started with.

Producer: Geffen came on to Michael and got turned down? Well, that’s funny, considering before Michael had a taste for more dubious activities, he had a taste for men. I know of several men who can be reliably stated to have dated Michael, Jehovah Witness-ism to the contrary.

VMJ: Several men reliably stated it? If Scott Thorson is one of those highly reliable people here is a post about this character. As regards the opinion of Hollywood at large, our Friend should know better than others that there are no reliable sources in Hollywood – everyone lies there and everyone repeats someone else’s false story.

And this isn’t just my opinion – it is a statement of the Los Angeles Magazine that presented it as an indisputable fact in its March 2004 issue: Read more…

Blanca Francia’s Testimony Revisited: STRANGE CONNECTIONS

January 30, 2020

The previous post about Blanca Francia introduced you to the psychologist Mike Craft, who worked with Blanca and her son Jason within a state-run ‘program for molested children’, and Attorney Terry Cannon, who reached a settlement with Michael Jackson’s lawyers on behalf of the Francia family.

Both Mike Craft and Terry Cannon surprised me by the time they appeared in Blanca Francia’s orbit.

Diane Dimond writes that the state-run therapy and counseling program was arranged for Jason after his mother’s interview with the police (Sept-Oct.1993) and this means that the program began even before Jason complained about anything at all (March ’94) or even before he first met with the police (Nov. 3, ’93).

Mike Craft is a marriage and family counselor. He set up his office in 1992. The number of staff is 1 (one).

If Jason Francia’s therapy indeed started before he ever recalled any tickling by MJ, it will change our perception of the situation around Michael Jackson so much that before any conclusions are made this stunning point should be double checked by all means.

As to attorney Terry Cannon he surprised me by entering the picture already at Jason Francia’s second police interview on March 24, 1994. This date didn’t jibe with the official version either as we were told that the negotiations over a settlement began only in late ’94/early ’95 after all dust in the Chandler case had settled.

These inexplicable shifts in the timeline were a curious twist to the story and demanded attention. What I found was lying almost on the surface. Read more…

Blanca Francia’s Testimony Revisited: THE TIMELINE

January 25, 2020

The promise to cover the remaining parts of ‘Leaving Neverland’ horror movie will be certainly kept, but before that we need to finish with the Blanca and Jason Francia’s story which is also a very big subject that has secrets of its own.

And I am not only talking about Blanca’s so-called evidence regarding Wade Robson that was handled in one of the previous posts – there are a lot of other interesting details that will open up to you if you really look.

Blanca Francia

This post will be about some of those secrets, but first here is a short reminder of what we found earlier about Blanca’s tale regarding Wade Robson.

Some excerpts from her 1993/94 deposition, posted on the internet only recently, made it clear that the story of ‘the former maid seeing Michael in a shower with little Wade Robson’ is a myth dispelled by her own depositions which took place just three years after the alleged event.

It turned out that she had seen only one figure in Michael Jackson’s shower – that of Michael himself. She only assumed that someone else could be there because his figure was blurred and half seen through the fogged glass, and she heard him give a little he-he-he giggle which made her think that he was talking to someone, though there were no other voices heard.

She also assumed that Wade Robson was in the shower as the boy was not in MJ’s room and she saw him and Michael Jackson together later in the day. But nothing was seen or heard in that bathroom – all of it was just a play of her vivid imagination.

Great as this discovery was, more awaited us when we learned that the alleged event  took place in December 1989 which dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s – by that time the Robsons had not even arrived in the US yet as their first visit to Neverland was only in February 1990.

So regardless of Robson’s claims, the described scene has nothing to do with him and we can forget about Robson for now.

A little more research brought us the name of the boy who really stayed at Neverland at the time specified by Blanca Francia – that of Ryan White, an AIDS victim whose condition was already so bad that he died just four months later, in April 1990.

Ryan White, aged 18 meets Ronald and Nancy Reagan. This is his last public appearance [March 1990]

Though being already 18 years old Ryan White looked very young, small and no older than 12, and could be easily taken by Blanca Francia for a ‘little’ friend of Michael Jackson.

And if she made her assumptions about that boy, any ideas about a joint shower with him will be completely crazy considering his disease, because at that time people were afraid of even sitting beside an AIDS victim, not to mention going to a shower or a bathtub with an infected person.

However another astonishing fact we know about Michael Jackson is that he wanted to go to a Jacuzzi with Ryan White.

When speaking to Larry King, Michael’s dermatologist Arnold Klein said that Michael asked him if going in a Jacuzzi with Ryan would be safe and didn’t pose a threat to him. He asked Dr. Hoefflin too, and Hoefflin strongly advised him against it, while Klein said it was okay.

Why did Michael want to do it for Ryan White?

He wanted to show the boy that he wasn’t a pariah and that at least Michael wasn’t afraid of him. Michael’s heart always went out to the weak and he wanted Ryan to feel normal and no different from others. He wanted to set him at his ease and acted like there was nothing extraordinary in taking a Jacuzzi with an infected person though everyone around shunned him like the plague.

In case Michael Jackson managed to realize his big plan and did take Ryan to a Jacuzzi during that visit, Blanca Francia could indeed see their wet swimming trunks on the floor (as she said she did) and Michael could indeed take a shower after that, right in the middle of the day.

As to Ryan White, after the Jacuzzi he would certainly go back to his guest unit to have a nap there – he was so frail that he regularly took a nap in the daytime to regain his strength.

For details of what Blanca Francia said during those 1993/94 depositions please go to this post. And if you want to learn more about Ryan White’s five-day stay at Neverland (in a guest unit by the way) in December ‘89 and see how he got acquainted with MJ at all, you can go to a separate page of this blog that will tell you about the two visits to Neverland described by Ryan White himself. He doesn’t mention the Jacuzzi, but if it did happen it could be only during his second visit to Neverland at Christmas 1989.

And we proceed to Blanca Francia’s numerous depositions that span the incredible period of nearly 25 years – this is how long every speck of dust around Michael was dissected by law enforcement, the media and his detractors.

Our goal is to see 1) what Blanca and Jason Francia testified to and what is true and false in their story 2) how their narrative progressed as time went by and 3) why and how Blanca reached a $2 mln. settlement agreement with MJ in connection with her son’s claims that he was tickled on three occasions within the five years they knew him.

A See-Through-Lies Manual on Orietta Murdock, Victor Gutierrez and Joy Robson

December 22, 2019

UPDATED

In the comments for one of this blog posts there are two short texts about little Wade Robson in Michael Jackson’s recording studio – one is Orietta Murdock’s statement from the Prosecution ‘Prior Bad Acts’ Motion for the 2005 trial and the other comes from Victor Gutierrez’s literary opus about Michael published in 1996.

For those who don’t know the above characters here is a reminder:  Orietta Murdock was Michael Jackson’s administrative assistant in September 1989–January 1991 and Victor Gutierrez is a pedophilia advocate who dogged Jackson since the late 80s, spread innumerable lies about him and who by Diane Dimond’s own admission, was the latter’s best source.

The stories by Murdock and Gutierrez are the usual kind – they are blatant lies about Michael Jackson and the only peculiar thing about them is that they are identical, though told by different people and at different times. My conclusion was that in the job of smearing Michael Jackson these two personas worked in close cooperation with each other, and Gutierrez was most probably the one with whom the false text originated.

The story proper was not analyzed as I thought that the proof of Murdock’s cooperation with a scumbag like Gutierrez was reason enough to immediately flash it down the toilet, but a reader left a comment to the effect that who told whom is a secondary matter as the basis of the story is true.

Indeed, who told whom doesn’t matter that much, but I am highly resentful of the idea that the basis of the story is true.  It is absolutely not true, though I understand why people fall into the fallacy of thinking that it is – if some elements sound familiar people get the impression that they know the general idea, and if a couple of details are real, they imagine that the whole of it is basically correct.

But clean and dirty waters are also basically the same as they share the same molecular structure, only one is safe to drink while the other will cause you sickness and even death. And the same goes for stories and information at large – though looking similar some of it is downright poisonous.

So it’s high time we realized that it is absolutely not enough to know the story ‘in general’ – this is only the illusion of knowledge and if you don’t know the story in full you may as well consider yourself ignorant of the matter.

HARD FACTS

Before we deal with the Gutierrez and Murdock lies the first thing to start with is establishing the hard facts of the story. And there can’t be a better source for the episodes described than Joy Robson, mother of Wade Robson. She testified to all that at the 2005 trial and her account can be trusted as even after her son’s U-turn against Jackson she hasn’t changed it and it is only her perception of some details that may be different now.

Blanca Francia’s Deposition BLASTS the Wade Robson Story

December 4, 2019

The name of Blanca Francia is now firmly associated with Wade Robson. She used to be a personal maid to Michael Jackson, who later made controversial statements about him, and Robson insisted on Michael’s innocence for the first 30 years of his life, but since making his U-turn in 2013 has told most horrible things about his former friend.

So previously Francia and Robson were on the opposite sides of the barrier, and now they are allies whose case against Jackson is based on each other stories – Blanca Francia thinks she saw the shadow of Robson in Michael Jackson’s shower at Neverland, and Robson, though recalling none of it himself, goes much further and claims she saw Michael Jackson “rubbing the Plaintiff” and “the Plaintiff’s head was pressed against Michael Jackson’s stomach area.”

The above Robson’s statements come from his Motion to amend his third amended complaint filed on September 9, 2016 (for its screenshot see the collage below).

The collage, combining an excerpt from the 2016 Motion and Robson’s milder version of the same from an earlier court document, was made by Hammer whose Twitter account also introduced me to the recent 2016 deposition of Blanca Francia.

Why is the description of the shower episode different in Robson’s two court documents and why is the amended 2016 version so gross in its content?

Whenever Robson’s story is found inconsistent his standard reply is that his memory “evolved”. But given that the new amendment was made three days after Blanca Francia’s deposition on September 6, 2016, it would be logical to assume that Robson took all those salacious details from her new testimony – however the problem here is that Blanca Francia said nothing of the kind there, so Robson must have drawn inspiration from another source.

Of course Blanca Francia’s deposition is available to us only in the bits and pieces put online by the one who bought those pages from the court reporter, but when you start reading the little we have, you will realize that even the above graphic content is not that important as it fades in comparison with the discovery we make there.

10 years of vindicating Michael Jackson

November 21, 2019

Sometimes there are dates or anniversaries of which you don’t know whether to celebrate them or to mourn them. After Michael Jackson’s 10th death anniversary this year, we now have the 10th anniversary of the foundation of our Vindicate MJ blog. Exactly today 10 years ago, on November 21 in 2009, Helena sent this blog online into the world with these first words:

“Father, Forgive Them; They Don’t Know What They Are Doing…”, with Johann Sebastian Bach’s famous Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major called “Air” and with her explanation why she started this work.

Well, in view of the fact that nothing has changed since November 2009 and that we still have to fight for the truth, it’s hard to celebrate this 10 year anniversary. And meanwhile I believe it is fair to say that some things cannot be forgiven anymore – at least it is up to God to forgive the liars, our human souls are not able to do this.10 years

When faced with the “Leaving Neverland” spectacle this year, it felt like we were thrown back to the beginning of our journey and have to start with educating people all over again.

However, what happened within these 10 years made us stronger and helped us to counter these new allegations with much more knowledge. There was so much research done by Jackson’s fans and supporters in this decade that we now can reply to every new claim and allegation with an enormous amount of facts like nobody else. This was harder in the beginning after Michael’s death than it is now.

Of course, the media didn’t learn much during this time, they ignore most of the facts now as they did it in earlier years. This is a systematic approach! We cannot rely on their objective treatment of Michael Jackson and all the stories spread about him. When it comes to MJ, they are still not interested in doing the task assigned to them: detailed fact-checking and objective assessment and reporting of stories and allegations.

But with all the research that was done by Michael Jackson “truthers” in an almost scientific manner since Michael’s death, we today can be very sure and convinced that we are right! That we are not mistaken! Because with every new fact we found out, our convictions were corroborated. And this is the joint work of international groups of bloggers, advocates and researchers, of which Helena is one of the most important.

On this day I want to highlight particularly the work done by Helena in the course of these 10 years, with so much passion that sometimes her health suffered severely from it. I remember the several public trials she covered arduously, writing posts every day and night, hardly sleeping during these weeks. I remember the attacks from MJ haters by impersonating the blog with lies and fake news. I remember her falling in a hurry and breaking her wrists which required her to stay in hospital for a while and leaving the blog to others, when she couldn’t write herself. The several times of absence from the blog always made the readers miss her very much – because she could not and never can be replaced. Her quick perception and excellent judgment and assessment of things are unparalleled and so much needed in difficult situations when false stories on Michael become overwhelming and people don’t know what to believe. In these times we need somebody with a clear view, with a wealth of knowledge and a good memory, leading us through the waves of rumors, untruths and biased reporting.

Certainly, nobody can do this amount of work on a daily basis for years. We need to stay healthy, we have families and have to care for other things and family members. So the temporal intervals between writing posts became longer over time, and it also didn’t seem necessary to repeat all facts any time new claims and lies on Michael came up. Principally, all was said on the allegations, and the facts speak for themselves.

But this year was different. Leaving Neverland and the two liars and their director made us nearly vomit considering the filthiness and the impertinence of their lies. And also nauseating was the fact that the media and the entertainment industry embraced the film despite the transparency of the lies, as well as the fact that pedophilia doesn’t seem any longer a subject of disgust, but of entertainment and a new ideology (“children can enjoy sex with adults”). Moreover, the agenda to bring down Jackson’s legacy became so obvious.

Seeing Robson and Safechuck going so far as to present themselves with their lies as movie stars (with even photo sessions showing them as the popstars they always wanted to be) was a shock – not a shock about the lies they told, because we already knew them – but a shock about how low some people can sink to make headlines and to take revenge.

The good thing that happened after the initial shock was the unity and the collective reaction of the fanbase and MJ advocates. And especially that many younger “MJ truthers” took over and stroke back on Twitter, YouTube and other social media, even in form of a great documentary, with joint forces and vast knowledge. This gives us a lot of hope. Helena and I are over 60 now, and we need the younger ones to take over and continue the work. It is necessary that younger fans carry forward the vindication work with the same passion and with new instruments and skills, and we are glad that we can rely on them.

Now I would particularly like to say a big Thank you to Helena for her tireless work and commitment. She is one of the pioneers in the MJ blogger community that emerged after Michael’s death, and did a lot of the essential research we needed for today. And we hope that she will be here as long as possible and give us the light we need.

I think we can be thankful that we could keep the blog alive for 10 years now and that nobody could break us. Considering the new law controlling the internet in Helena’s home country, this cannot be taken for granted for the future. And now that a new Californian legislation enables Robson and Safechuck to return their cases to the trial court, there is possibly a lot more work to do and we are far from reaching our goal. But we hope for the best that we will be able to go on TOGETHER!

The VMJ blog is an academic Chair for studying Michael Jackson, and it hopefully will exist another 10 years and longer, beyond our own lives, to educate next generations. This is our wish and we will take care that it remains safe. Thanks to all our readers who keep us going!

May God bless you, Helena!

WHAT WE KNOW about Mark Quindoy’s Diary and Wade Robson. Part 3

November 16, 2019

If somebody tells you that he kept a diary when travelling to an exotic place, and when you start reading it you find that the the names and locations are all wrong, the dates are messed up and the museum described was closed in that particular season, you will suspect that the writer is pulling your leg and just fabricated the whole thing, probably never going on that trip at all.

The same with Mariano “Mark” Quindoy.

Mark Quindoy reads out from his diary, 1993

Quindoy claimed that he kept a diary since his first day of employment at Neverland, but it has so many inaccuracies in the dates, names and descriptions that at some point you start realizing that it is a fabrication.

Michael Jackson’s detractors will excuse Quindoy’s blunders by saying that “it was long ago and he simply misremembered it”, however this excuse cannot be applied to a diary which is kept then and there and if something worthy of attention happens in the morning you make a note of it in the evening. Or the next day. Or the same week at the very latest.

A diary cannot have any discrepancies and if not true to life in its every detail, it is actually an imitation based on outside sources and the author’s fantasy. It is either this or that,  with no shades of gray in between.

Therefore it is no use sorting through the mess of Mariano Quindoy’s diary trying to filter the “correct” facts from its lies and inaccuracies – if some pieces of his diary are messed up it means that the whole of it was fabricated.

WHAT THE ‘DIARY’ SAYS ABOUT SAFECHUCK

Mariano Quindoy’s diary has reached us in its several versions. First it was reported by the media as Quindoy presented it at his 1993 press conference in Manila. Then Quindoy’s ideas were stated in the prosecution “Prior Bad Acts” Motion of December 10, 2004. And then it was retold in several books (Diane Dimond’s is the example).

Let us go over Quindoy’s most striking statements that went into the Prosecution “Prior Bad Acts” Motion. Read more…

What Do We Know About Mariano “Mark” Quindoy? Part 2

November 5, 2019

By September 1993, when Mariano “Mark” and Ofelia “Faye” Quindoy arranged a press conference in Manila, their legal battle with Michael Jackson had been going for three years – since they left Neverland in August 1990. The disputed sum was $283,000 they thought Michael Jackson owed them in unpaid overtime wages.

For a while all seemed quiet, but in late 1991– early 1992 they started seeking contact with the media. We’ve seen their two big TV interviews with Hard Copy (Feb.1992) and Geraldo (July 1992), and an earlier contract with the “Sun” for $25,000 to tell a frank and full story about their work for Michael Jackson – however then they didn’t say a single bad word about their former employer.

The Quindoys and Michael Jackson

But knowing that when doing those interviews the Quindoys were also litigating Michael Jackson, it was easy to assume that their public appearances were actually a warning sent to Michael via TV – if their payment demands were not met, the very same story about him would acquire a different coloring.

Indeed, their earlier interviews had all the makings of future allegations – the comment that Michael used to throw around his clothes and underwear was a signal that it could turn into “boy’s underwear” lying by his bedside, the bed on the second floor of his bedroom where his guests “usually stayed” could turn into a “never slept in” bed, and the innocent fact that for their 6 months there they didn’t see any MJ’s girlfriends would later turn into the idea that he was gay.

The supposition that the interviews were a veiled threat was confirmed by an unexpected source – Victor Gutierrez, who claims that the Quindoys “made demands of” Jackson and threatened him. Gutierrez says that he was also planning to interview them. Read more…

What Do We Know About Mariano “Mark” Quindoy? Part 1

October 31, 2019

Recently I came across an interview of Mariano “Mark” Quindoy, a former housekeeper at Neverland and his wife Ofelia “Faye” Quindoy who worked at Neverland as chef. The video claims that the Quindoys were employed at the ranch for two years and shows Mariano “Mark” Quindoy saying that during his time at the ranch he eye-witnessed a scene in the pool area where Michael Jackson allegedly kissed a boy and put his hand into the boy’s pants. The name of the boy was not specified.

Mariano “Mark” Quindoy on Current Affair, Jan.17, 1994

This previously unknown video is a clip from the Current Affair program dated January 17, 1994, but it surfaced only recently sparking off numerous exclamations from its viewers like “Shocking”, “Never seen this before. I can’t believe some people think he’s innocent”, “Why the hell did they stay silent?” etc.

It just happened that right at that time I was also rereading the Prosecution Motion of December 10, 2004 introducing the so-called “Prior Bad Acts” into the forthcoming Michael Jackson trial (also known as #1108 Motion), and the details and wording of the statement of the same Mariano “Mark” Quindoy in that paper made it clear that Robson’s and Safechuck’s stories in the “Leaving Neverland” film are for the most part based on Quindoy’s claims – up to the description of some scenes repeated by these two characters almost verbatim.

This suddenly made Mariano “Mark” Quindoy big news again, so we need to closely look into this character and his story, especially into that striking episode near the pool area which Quindoy allegedly observed at Neverland and which, according to #1108 Motion, supposedly involved Jimmy Safechuck. It is the same episode as the one in the video, only described in the prosecution paper in much more detail. Read more…

Danny Wu’s documentary SQUARE ONE about Michael Jackson is a MUST-SEE

October 9, 2019

Danny Wu did a remarkable job.

His SQUARE ONE documentary does away with the allegations against Michael Jackson in a very concise and clear way, and what amazes me most is that despite the documentary being only 1 hour and 20 minutes long he manages to cover it all and not miss a thing. Out of the vast exculpatory materials accumulated since Michael Jackson’s passing, Danny Wu managed to select only the most essential facts and documents that tell the truth about those allegations in their most condensed form.

From what I hear about the author he more or less believed Michael Jackson’s accusers after watching the “Leaving Neverland” fake but since it didn’t feel right for him to just blindly accept it, it triggered off his own research and after an obviously very deep dive into the MJ story he made his rebuttal documentary just in two months – a miraculous phenomenon in and of itself, especially considering how impressive the result is.

Even from this point of view it is totally unlike Dan Reed’s tedious shooting and reshooting of his “Leaving Neverland” scenes intended to present its characters in their most favorable light and give them some semblance of credibility through their endless repetitive lies, which are meant to pass off as “research” that actually never took place there.

It is also funny how Danny Wu manages to be slightly ironic about Dan Reed’s crooked job by imitating his signature aerial views and piano music which adds to this documentary at lot as you can’t help occasionally laughing even despite the seriousness of the subject.

In short the quality, accuracy and standard of research of SQUARE ONE are phenomenal, which make it a must-see for those who never heard MJ’s real story and are ready to leave the nasty media matrix to discover the sensational truth that Michael Jackson was an innocent man.

And even long-time researchers like us can also find in the documentary some new facts to carry on with. Read more…

LIES OF “LEAVING NEVERLAND” and the matter of JOY ROBSON’S HAIRSTYLE

August 29, 2019

Honest people to whom the truth matters are doing so splendid a job of debunking  the lies of Dan Reed’s ‘Leaving Neverland’ film that I can only watch in awe the speed at which they are doing it. Great new videos have been released lately and more are still to come – the ‘Leaving Neverland‘ fakes are indeed an endless source for research and analysis for those who value the truth and reveal it to others.

The thorough shredding of ‘Leaving Neverland’ into pieces seems to have come as a surprise to its authors as well as the mainstream media – none of them expected Michael Jackson’s fans to watch the film in the first place, not to mention the fans’ determination to dissect it.  Of course all those involved in making this fabrication continue to play the old tune, but now they are definitely on the defense and sound more and more like a broken record. Their fake documentary is in rags now because of the numerous holes poked in it, but the liars in and around the film continue to pretend they don’t see anything wrong with it and don’t mind the stench. And this is what backfires most – the more they pretend and censor the voices of reason, the clearer Michael’s innocence is.

Out of the many latest videos debunking Robson’s and Safechuck’s lies the only one available to me is the one called ‘Lies of Leaving Neverland’, released in mid-August, almost on the eve of Michael Jackson’s birthday.

The video is a marvel. It takes only 32 minutes to show the enormity of falsifications in Dan Reed’s film – its numerous contradictions, provable lies, fakes scenes, restaged shoots, reconstructed memories, omission of critical information, manipulation of news clips, use of discredited source materials, key motives ignored and whatnot.

But to me the most stunning discovery of all were the fragments of Robson’s and his mother’s depositions videotaped in 2016 and released only now. Let me tell you – it is one thing to read the tapescripts and it is a totally different thing to see them saying it. Read more…

How the TRUTH of “Chernobyl” Dumped the “Leaving Neverland” FAKE

June 25, 2019

“This is not a film about Michael Jackson. It’s about the Robsons and Safechucks and their encounters with Jackson,” said Dan Reed about his “Leaving Neverland” creation.

Following Reed’s example I will also say that this post is not about Michael Jackson – it is about the two filmmakers whose films are the complete opposites and the only common feature and drawback they share is that both were produced by HBO.

This common production platform is indeed a drawback because the superb accuracy of Craig Mazin’s  “Chernobyl” may lead people to believe that “Leaving Neverland” made by Dan Reed is up to the same standard of factual accuracy. And the glorious effect of one film may reflect on the other though these two films are actually like poles apart – Reed’s so-called documentary is a blatant fake while Craig Mazin’s dramatization movie, which even has some fictional characters, is still breathtakingly authentic and true to life.

Craig Mazin

And this is not to mention the fact that Craig Mazin’s work is up to the highest standards of journalistic and human ethics, while Dan Reed is even unaware of these words.

If you put these films side by side you will also suddenly realize that the tragic but simple truth is much more harrowing than even the most sophisticated and horrible lies. Read more…

„Leaving Neverland“ – after the dust has settled: Fiction and propaganda

June 13, 2019

Meanwhile Dan Reed’s „Leaving Neverland“ has aired in many countries and the dust has settled, presenting a clearer picture of the so-called documentary. The discrepancies and obvious lies in the fiction film have become visible, though not spread everywhere in the media, especially in the US. Apparently it is still not admissible for the mainstream media to talk about the contradictions and implausibilities in the film and explain why not all accusers of sexual abuse have to be believed.

Recently Helena and I have written on a post at the same time, and interestingly we found out that we have included the same topics in it without talking to each other. It showed us that we clearly have the same things on our mind and blindly can complement each other. Helena’s latest post is so important that I decided to add a few things which will corroborate her post and support her statements, especially regarding the propaganda and consensual love issues.
And I do it today on Michael’s acquittal day because in this trial in 2005 his innocence was proven, and Wade Robson had testified for this acquittal. Read more…

The ‘Leaving Neverland’ Fabrication Is Breeding A New Ideology

May 24, 2019

“Nothing binds you except your thoughts; nothing limits you except your fear;

and nothing controls you except your beliefs.”

Marianne Williamson

This post took much, much longer than expected (very sorry for that). When every new day uncovered more and more of Robson’s and Safechuck’s lies, but it still didn’t change anything, I will admit that it was somewhat disheartening to look for the truth.

In circumstances like these it felt like true facts are irrelevant, the feeling all too well known to me from other spheres of life, and it once again raised the question that constantly bothers me – what’s the point of telling people the truth if they prefer lies anyway? Is there a need for facts if all that matters is “who says what” and the impression it produces?

SAFECHUCK’S TRAIN STATION

Safechuck, for example, said that when he was a boy he allegedly “had sex” with MJ at many places at Neverland, including the second floor of the train station where it “happened every day”. The impression produced by his monotonous description of the alleged offense, his detached manner and a weird smile was indescribable:

SAFECHUCK: “At the train station, there’s a room upstairs, and we would have sex up there, too. It would happen every day. It sounds sick, but it’s kind of like when you’re first dating somebody, right, and you do a lot of it. (Chuckles.) So it was very much like that.

Now we know that every word in this story is fiction as the train station was built two years after the alleged relationship stopped, but when you say it to Oprah Winfrey she will answer you that the two years discrepancy is no problem – it doesn’t matter if “it was Wednesday or Thursday” as victims can simply forget.

“Leaving Neverland” transcript. The 2nd half hour of LIES AND DISTORTION

March 31, 2019

The next half hour of the film contains even worse distortions of the timeline than the first one, and this makes it even clearer that Dan Reed is part and parcel of the Robson/ Safechuck scam project.

The problem is that in addition to the two guys’ lies Dan Reed deliberately paints the picture of “grooming” which was absolutely not the case if you know the real timeline. So in order to fill the void Dan Reed builds the suspense artificially – by editing the footage and manipulating the dates. The goal is to present Michael Jackson’s normal interaction with the families as something utterly calculating and sinister.

In reality Safechuck had very little communication with Michael Jackson – after their brief meeting during the December 1986 Pepsi commercial he saw him again only 8 months later, and that was only because he kept bombarding MJ with letters and the polite Michael finally invited them to dinner at Nevenhurst in early November 1987 (during a break between the two legs of his Bad tour).

And Robson didn’t see MJ for two years which passed between their first meet and greet in Australia and the family’s arrival in the US when they spent a whole week seeking out Michael Jackson and struggling to find his telephone number. Their further interaction was not that intense either – in 2005 Joy Robson testified that in 14 years she recalled only 4 occasions when Wade and Michael Jackson were together at Neverland. At all other times the Robsons were there without him.

So not only Dan Reed didn’t check the facts, but he also aggravated the two guys’ lies by artificially “intensifying” their friendship with MJ and creating a continuous story out of the few bits and pieces the two guys had. Read more…

“Leaving Neverland” transcript. The 1st half hour of LIES AND DISTORTION

March 22, 2019

If you are attentive enough when watching this film and if you compare it with the two guys’ lawsuits, you will realize that it is not only Robson, Safechuck and their relatives who lie there, but also director Dan Reed who is complicit, because he makes their lies sound even more sinister than they actually are.

You can’t help making this conclusion when you see the free and willful way he edits the footage and changes the timeline of the events to the point of no recognition.

Of course these lies could be initially presented to Dan Reed in their wrong succession, but a real documentary filmmaker should still do proper research, at least as regards the timeline of the events he wants to present in his story.

So what you will see in this series of posts is not only the analysis of the two guys’ lies, but also the role of the film director in making their story even worse than his two main characters actually tell it.

Below is the partial transcript of the first half hour of the film with some of its segments compared with the court documents and thus setting the timeline straight. In my opinion even if the events are falsely described they should still come in the right order, and not turn into a separate weird fantasy of the film director. Read more…

John Ziegler’s Podcast and True Journalism about ‘Leaving Neverland’

March 19, 2019

Here is another review of the social media on the ever-shrinking ‘Leaving Neverland’ movie by Dan Reed.

Why it is shrinking is because as soon as Michael Jackson fans spot another inconsistency and easily disproven lie Dan Reed cuts out the respective episode and the movie gets shorter and shorter, so what was originally 4 hours in the US is already 3 hours 15 min or less in other countries.

Jonathan Moffett (and Razorfist) say the following about it:

Here is an example how manipulative “Leaving Neverland” was in how it was presented & edited, leaving real FACTS out with only distorted truths presented out of context. This is UNETHICAL Dan Reed!  Full video here:

To know the latest news about the Leaving Neverland movie you need to follow Twitter where it is reported at a cosmic speed, so my intention to make a review about Twitter reactions to it had to be given up as the torrent of news there is too quick to grasp it all.

Fortunately, on March 17th John Ziegler made an amazing podcast called Fraud and Fakes with a review of the most significant events for the past week and a diagnosis of the deplorable condition of the mainstream news media that failed to notice blatant Robson/Safechuck’s lies and director Dan Reed’s open propaganda.

Below you will find the rough transcript of the ‘Leaving Neverland’ part of his podcast which will explain a couple of things to those people who still think that they can get their facts off a movie.

It will also contain an occasional tweet from MJ fans here and there.

So here is John Ziegler, the host of Free Speech podcast, speaking on March 17, 2019: Read more…

Insight-Oriented Therapy and Wade Robson’s Doctor Larry Shaw

March 15, 2019

Initially this post was titled “What you should know about insight-oriented therapy before you watch Leaving Neverland” and was to preempt that documentary movie airing on TV. However the first reviews after the Sundance film festival became a distraction and the post had to be put aside.

Now I wish it hadn’t been postponed as it deals with what seems to be the main problem in handling Robson and Safechuck’s stories – the fact that they look credible to some people and questions “how can they be so credible if they are not telling the truth?”

Well, the paradox is that they may look credible even if they are telling complete lies, and it isn’t only due to good acting, but for other reasons too.

As to their acting, it is actually not that good when seen by a professional and expert eye. In a recent video by a body analysis expert from Toronto Jiovanni Maccarrone who commented on Robson’s and Safechuck’s TV answers to the first uncomfortable question (about changing their testimony) after their debut on TV, the expert made a negative conclusion about both.

However irrespective of what you or anyone think of the two guys’ performance the focus of this post will be on a different matter – the fact that even when people tell outright lies like Robson and Safechuck do, there are psychological techniques commonly known as ‘insight therapy’ that help them believe their own lies and thus make them look much more credible in what they say.

Moreover, in the process of this ‘therapy’ the false accounts of some events may grow so detailed, elaborate and colorful, that the end result will impress the viewers even more.  Salvador Dali once famously said about it: Read more…

First Reviews of Dan Reed’s Leaving Neverland: IT STARTS WITH A BIG LIE

March 8, 2019

The first week of March this year was packed with so many crucial events around the so-called documentary  “Leaving Neverland” that each of them demanded a post. However covering them all was impossible in principle, so I settled on a review of the main episodes in the battle between truth and lies suddenly imposed on the public by Michael Jackson haters.

Some important pieces of the battle may have been omitted and I apologize for it in advance – if something substantial was overlooked it may be added later, in the comments or as an update to the post.

What you will see here are mostly tweets and messages from various people who have seen the film. I myself saw about an hour of Dan Reed’s four-hour product and to my surprise was so unimpressed that even despite its graphic content managed to have a meal in the process. My comment will be minimal as the impression is not full, however my short review of the first part will also be here.

For a start this is what genuine survivors of child sexual abuse say about the film.  Read more…

Michael Jackson Fans Are Tenacious. ‘Leaving Neverland’ Has Them Poised for Battle, BY THE NEW YORK TIMES – VMJ interviews

March 4, 2019

Recently Joe Coscarelli, the music reporter at the NY Times contacted the admins of this blog to say that he was interested in getting the perspective of MJ’s “most loyal fans, supporters and historians” on the documentary which none of us had yet seen by that moment.

Today, the day after the documentary has gone on air on HBO, Joe Coscarelli’s article has been published, quoting us together with other Michael Jackson’s advocates with whom the correspondent has evidently been in touch.

Since most of these bloggers are Americans I presume that their interviews must have been done over the phone, while we (Susanne and I) are foreigners who are absolutely not sure of our English speaking skills and this is why we submitted our replies in writing.

We certainly never expected the NY Times to give a full coverage of our ideas on the present situation around Michael Jackson, so for the readers of this blog to really know what “truthers” like us think about it,  here is both Joe Coscarelli’s piece and our written answers to him sent several days ago.  Read more…

WHAT THE MAID SAW. Adrian McManus tells her full story about Michael Jackson in its four variations

March 2, 2019

On February 24th the Australian 60 min TV program aired an interview with Adrian McManus who reemerged again on the wave of a new craze over the revised stories of Robson and Safechuck.

Following the latest fashion each time a certain detractor from Michael’s past reappears, it is usually with a much graver story than before and Ms. McManus is no exception here.

You can watch the Australian video and read its transcript at the end of this post, but before you hear the latest from McManus, it is an absolute must to know her previous saga and see her memory in its evolvement during the past two and a half decades.

The saga is huge, so prepare yourself for a long read. However I feel that it isn’t only Dan Reed who is entitled to a four-hour narration, especially since his story is solely about fake emotions, while mine is solely about facts and it isn’t my fault that McManus changed her story four times.   Read more…

The New Lynching of Michael Jackson: Dan Reed’s Leaving Neverland, by Linda-Raven Woods

February 28, 2019

Linda-Raven Woods has published an excellent article about the recent highly questionable product by Dan Reed. Besides being a comprehensive overview of the situation around the film, the author also makes some very important points which I would also like to bring to people’s attention.

So here is just an excerpt from the article – for the full story please go to this source. 

The New Lynching of Michael Jackson: Dan Reed’s Leaving Neverland May, In Fact, Leave Blood on Many Hands

By: Linda-Raven Woods

… The utter hypocrisy and witch hunt mentality with which the mainstream media has greeted this film is, ultimately, the most disturbing aspect of all. “Hit pieces” on public figures will come and go, and this has certainly been the case with Michael Jackson. But in this case, Leaving Neverland is a travesty that should never have been made.

Dan Reed claims that his movie is not about Michael Jackson, yet by his own admission the film would not have been made had it not been about Michael Jackson. Dan Reed owed it to the subject of his film to go beyond the surface of these allegations and to vet his sources. He owed it to the public legacy of Michael Jackson, to his orphaned children and elderly mother, to fully investigate the stories of Wade Robson and James Safechuck before committing them to film, and moreover, to examine and analyze all exculpatory evidence (of actual, inculpatory evidence, the film offers surprisingly none).

But just because the film was made does not mean we have to be obligated to embrace or enable it. That so many prominent journalists and media talking heads have displayed the willingness to accept this film blindly at face value, without raising the much needed questions that need to be asked about its veracity, is a bigger unforgiveable travesty than the film itself. But this is exactly what Dan Reed, HBO and Channel 4 are counting on, that the current zeitgeist of MeToo and its “don’t question victims” mentality will create the tunnel vision needed to willfully blind viewers.

Dan Reed and Richard Plepler, as well as the executives of Channel 4, are certainly not naïve. They knew that this was the kind of smear campaign that would result from their film. It has been a carefully orchestrated strategy from the outset, with the clear end goal of diminishing the lucrative power of Michael Jackson’s brand. The logic and obvious modus operandi remains the same as it has been for Robson and Safechuck from the outset: To force a shakedown for the Michael Jackson Estate.

The very nature of Dan Reed’s hypocrisy can be seen first hand. In a recent interview with Independent, Reed claims to have been “disgusted” by the letter from the Michael Jackson Estate to HBO that clearly broke down the many, varied reasons why Robson’s and Safechuck’s litigations did not hold up in court, claiming, “What would the Jackson estate have to say about what happened in a hotel room in Paris, in 1988, between James and Jackson? Nothing. They weren’t there.”

Yet, by that same logic, Dan Reed proceeds within the same interview to state unequivocally of Jackson, He hurt a lot of people. He was cruel. He was vicious.” But Dan Reed, like the Michael Jackson Estate, was not there! Dan Reed was not in those hotel rooms in Paris, either. Dan Reed did not know Michael Jackson. He never met him, and never met Robson or Safechuck until 2017. Yet he has proceeded to weave a one-sided hit piece based on the reality he wishes to sell.
