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!

    Helena is a legend. I hope one day, when this is all said and done and MJ is fully vindicated, she and others like her will be given the credit they deserve for all the contributions they’ve made to the fight on his behalf. Without her, MJ’s legacy wouldn’t stand a chance right now. It was her work that originally helped me sort through the evidence and understand what actually happen with Michael. I was initially on the fence before I finally decided to go down the rabbit hole and investigate the abuse allegations against him and it was her blog that I went to first for the “pro side” of the argument vs. sites like MJFacts and MJandBoys. I was looking at both sides to see which was (1) the most honest and accurate in covering the facts and (2) which theory of MJ’s guilt or innocence was the most grounded in the evidence. What I appreciated most about her work was how freely she always made her sources available; she also provided solid evidence for anything she claimed as fact and made sure to note for the readers the moments when she was purely speculating vs drawing her conclusions based solely on the evidence. This woman deserves so much. I hope she continues to live a long (and happy) life. I really love that woman. Thank you for everything.

    Oh Susanne, I knew that you would write a post for the anniversary of the blog, but didn’t know that you would make it so wonderful. Thank you and all readers of this blog who appreciate it and support the truth about Michael Jackson!

    You know, when someone criticizes my findings I know what to answer these people, but when someone praises them, I don’t know what to say. Really don’t know. This blog simply gave me a chance to be myself and being praised for being oneself is a very embarrassing experience.

    Blogging happened to me so suddenly and so unexpectedly, that was a shock to me in the first place. Like Michael used to say, it fell in my lap and was initially a bewilderment – why me and what could I say in addition to what others had already said? But now it feels like a gift from Michael Jackson. A gift and honor to defend the truth in its essential function of protecting the innocent, a chance to clean our minds of the lies put there like poison for someone’s fun and pleasure, and a rare opportunity to obtain a new, clear view of reality.

    It is a real gift to all of us from Michael Jackson. The beastly whirl of his never-ending vilification is teaching us the ability to tell the truth from lies and right from wrong – the ability that quickly perfects itself with each of their new lies and which one day may become essential for everything else taking place around us.

    They call us ‘truthers’ and for some reason think that it sounds offensive. But for us it is like a badge of honor. I will be forever grateful to Michael for inviting me to join other truth seekers and for bringing all of us together. Truth is irresistible and will always draw the best of the younger generation into its orbit. So the fact that truth will win is not to be disputed, IT CERTAINLY WILL.

    But what is still a matter of worry is whether the number of those who value the truth will outweigh the number of those others – the lying and the cynical, the ignorant, the indifferent and the sleepy. Hopefully they will because we live in the times when truth has become a matter of survival.

    William, thank you very much for going down the rabbit hole. That was the crucial point. If you really want to know you will get to the truth no matter what – with my or someone else’s help, or simply on your own. Besides everything else doing your own research is also extremely interesting. It is like being part of an online thriller. Everybody is capable of it.

    And thank you for your kind words to me. And your love. I love you too (c)
    Now I know why Michael Jackson always gave that reply. It is impossible not to a love a person who loves you.

    Thank you very much to all of you responding to this post. I know Helena is very humble and regards it unnecessary to be praised for her work. But on this occasion I felt it to be adequate to say some words of appreciation and respect for her continuous research and writing, even in times when it is very hard and exhausting.
    Like Helena says, truth has become a matter of survival, not only for the Michael Jackson history, but also for us living in the various countries on earth where truth has become a precious good we have to fight for. So we cannot allow it to be stolen by those who turn it into a counterfeit.
    Helena, your garden photos with these wonderful roses are lifting us up in these dark and cold times!

    Thank you all for this amazing blog. VMJ was one of the blogs I frequently read when I first started researching about MJ in 2014 and I’m still subscribed to this blog till today. I could not agree more with an earlier commenter, William. I felt uncertain when I first came across the terrible statements written by the media. The cynical side of me also didn’t want to give MJ the benefit of the doubt, but eventually curiosity got the better of me. I stumbled onto several “guilty” sites, but as I analysed the points they put forward, it just didn’t make sense and was inconsistent. I decided to investigate the other side.

    There’s one thing about truth – that, no matter how inconceivable and somewhat wild it seems, truth stays consistent. Initially, I could not wrap my head around how such a wealthy individual could be wrongfully accused. It was the complete opposite of the cases many of us encounter. Still, reading, learning and researching … The feeling transitioned from shock to outrage and now, certainty in the truth. It opened my eyes and I’m so grateful to be here today, as part of the MJ community.

    Congratulations again! God bless you all! x

    David, thank you for your contribution to the blog too!
    Ten years are a long time of course, but this never-ending smear campaign against Jackson even gives us some unexpected benefits. As the story evolves so do some secrets and previously unknown facts also get uncovered. Recently I’ve come across a new deposition of Blanca Francia and was amazed to find there new and sensational facts.
    Hopefully my next post will be about it.
