Ive heard that Michael Jackson said he was dreaming
of a time when lies told by his detractors would become a means
to disprove these same lies.
This is exactly the method we are using here and in order to
restore the picture of what really happened in Michaels
life we need to first collect lies from his life-long haters
like Diane Dimond and Victor Gutierrez and compare
them with other stories obtained from other Michaels friends
like Bob Jones (Michaels former publicist),
for example, or Jordans mother June Chandler.
Jacques Perettis horror documentary about Michael
Jackson describes Bob Jones as Michaels right hand
and as a person who supposedly knew Michael Jackson very well
the film says he had been on every tour and
stayed at every hotel with his boss. His work entailed
dealing with the tabloids, dealing with the fan magazines, dealing
with the fanatics who are his fans and they are fanatical
Well, given Bob Jones opinion about Michaels fans
I wonder whether he was capable of doing his work properly at
all but this is not the point. The point is whether
he really knew Michael so well that he could be regarded as
an ultimate source of information about the man.
Surprisingly Bob Jones says he met Jackson seldom and tried
to distance himself from his boss. He speaks about it among
other things during his testimony on April 11, 2005 http://floacist.wordpress.com/2007/12/15/court-transcript-4-11-2005/:

QUESTIONS BY THOMAS MESEREAU:
17 Q. Okay. Now, when did you say your work was
19 A. June 9th, 2004.
20 Q. Okay. And where was your office at the
22 A. In my home.
23 Q. You indicated in response to the
24 prosecutors question that you didnt see Michael
25 very often, right?
26 A. No.
27 Q. And why was that?
28 A. This was this was Michael Jacksons modus
1 operandi from the very beginning. I saw Michael
2 mostly if we were on a tour that my presence if I
3 may explain. I have worked in the entertainment
4 industry prior to working with Michael Jackson for
5 17 and a half years, and I know familiarity breeds
6 contempt. And the further you stay away from
7 artists, the better off you are.
8 Q. And for that reason, did you not go to
9 Neverland very much?
10 A. I went to Neverland when I brought groups
11 up, such as the Challengers Boys & Girls Club. Such
12 as the First AME Church, et cetera. I was not a
13 regular visitor at Neverland at all.
20 Q. BY MR. MESEREAU: In a typical year, while
21 you were employed, how often would you visit
23 A. I havent been to Neverland in years. My
24 visits to Neverland were on a more frequent basis
25 about five years ago when I was able to get groups
26 approved to go to Neverland.
27 Q. Okay. And you had an office located where?
28 A. Before we closed the offices, we were at
1 9255 Sunset Boulevard.
So Bob Jones wasnt a regular visitor at Neverland,
worked in his home office, went only on three tours with Michael
Jackson within his 16 and a half years of employment, saw his
boss seldom and thought that the further you stay away
from artists, the better off you are?
But from Perettis film I gathered that Bob Jones was somewhat
offended by the fact that he always had to stay in a suite (!)
on a different floor from his boss? And now we find out that
it was actually Bob Jones own choice? And how much
can this person know about Jackson as a human being if he was
never really close to him?
It is clear that Bob Jones story about Monaco is so much
edited that even its redacted version shows that what he said
was not exactly what they later made out of it. However Jacques
Peretti, Victor Gutierrez and Diane Dimond sqeeze as much
horror as it is possible out of the little Bob Jones did say:
He pushed it to the edge in Monaco. It was their honeymoon.
The most intense things occurred during their honeymoon. He
gave the mother of the boy his credit card and she went shopping
with Jordan and Michael being alone in that room. Jackson is
in the suite with Jordie. He was having a relationship with
Jordie and it was intensifying. So why did no one stop him,
not the police, not Jordies mother, not Jacksons
Peretti: Jordie and Michael were with the flu?
Bob Jones: Supposedly. I got the doctor to come. They
said they had the flu. The mother and daughter went out shopping
to Italy (?). They were in the suite with the flu.
Peretti: For how long?
Bob Jones: All day. But they were in the bedroom at night
too. (long silence)
Peretti (pertrified): What do you think was going on?
Bob Jones: I have no idea. (long silence)
Peretti (knowingly): I think you do.
Bob Jones: Oh, you do?
Peretti: I could make a guess. (meaningful silence)
Bob Jones: Whatever, you know. I wasnt in there.
I had a suite on a different floor. I always stayed on a different
floor than my boss. Familiarity breeds contempt.
Perettis voiceover: Only Michael and Jordie can know what
really happened in that room. All we know for sure is that while
the ceremony continued Jackson and Jordie remained in the suite.
Diane Dimond: He was sitting on his lap next to the prince
of Monaco. His mother and sister sat behind. It was so embarrassing
that one of his aides said Jordie should go and sit in the back
but he wouldnt hear about it.
Bob Jones: You can take a horse to the water but you
cannot make him drink it. When you see somebody doing wrong
you can tell the person he shouldnt do that
Peretti: What was he saying to the world?
Bob Jones: I can do what I want to.
Oh, how meaningful those silences are! They are evidently meant
to imply that Bob Jones didnt believe they had the flu
and that it was only a pretext for them to stay alone the whole
day. But why didnt they use those pauses instead for explaining
why Michael and Jordan would call a doctor at all if
they were not ill? Isnt it too much troublesome to call
a doctor first and then explain to him that it was only a joke?
Actually it is no other than June Chandler who confirms
that they were really ill that day:
96-97: 15 Q. Okay. When you were in Monaco with Michael
16 Jackson, what did you do?
17 A. We went to an awards ceremony. We well,
18 Jordie and Michael Jordie and Michael were sick,
19 so Lily and I went shopping and drove around. We
20 were driven around.
3 Q. Now, you indicated that at one point Jordie
4 and Michael had the flu, right?
5 A. Correct.
6 Q. And where did you find out they had the flu?
7 A. In the hotel room.
14 Q. And do you recall what you bought with
15 Michael Jacksons credit card?
16 A. I know I I think two handbags.
17 Q. Anything else?
18 A. Not that I recall, no.
From what I know about the flu it is not only
a sore throat and a running nose (which are more associated
with a cold), but a bad headache and a high temperature too.
And why would it look unnatural to anyone if those ill with
the flu would stay in the hotel room and sleep the whole day?
Or possibly watch TV or videos from time to time? And I am NOT
sure at all that people with the flu and a high temperature
like taking baths as Jordan allegedly later described
. And why are they fussing so much about the children
sitting in the first row? Why did Bob Jones ask Michael
to let the children sit in the back and why wouldnt Michael
want to hear about it? Was Michael really defiantly demonstrating
to the world that molesting a child in front of everyone
was what he was keen on?
June Chandlers testimony is no help to us here
as she doesnt even mention the ceremony and (surprisingly)
never tells the story of a rare chance of meeting the royalty
through Michael, however this time it is Bob Jones himself
who clarifies the situation in his testimony on April 11, 2005
Q. Where was Michael Jackson sitting in that event?
BJ: He was seated on the front row next to Prince Albert of
Monaco, and on one side, and Linda Evans, the actress,
on the other side. And I attempted to get I had arranged
for the Chandlers to sit directly behind Mr. Jackson because
I did not feel that the royalty wanted to be bothered with those
guests. But he insisted that they sit with him, so I left it
Q. Now, you indicated at the music awards, the World Music Awards,
that at one point you saw Jordie on Michael Jacksons lap
and his sister on Michael Jacksons lap together, right?
10 A. That is correct.
Q. Did the mother sit with Michael Jackson as well?
Q. Okay. So when you saw the brother and sister sitting on Michael
Jacksons lap in the first row, the mother was right behind,
Q. So this is the first row in full view of everyone at the
awards show, correct?
A. That is correct.
Q. There was no effort to hide anything at any time?
Q. At some point, did you see the children with their mother
behind where Michael Jackson was
A. When I brought them in to their seats, they were seated behind
Mr. Jackson. Mr. Jackson moved them up front.
Q. Okay. Did when you say he moved them up front, did
he move them into seats up front?
A. He moved them into his seat.
Q. Okay. So the children moved into his seat to sit with him?
A. With him.
Q. And the mother still stayed sitting behind?
A. That is correct.
Q. And at some point did you see the children go back with their
mother or did they always stay with Michael?
A. No, they stayed up there.
Q. Please tell the jury what the World Music Awards show is.
A. The World Music Awards show is a show thats given annually
in Monte Carlo for the best worldwide record sales. And we had
gone there for that particular purpose, for him to be honored
by the World Music Awards. And to be seen around the world.
And I attempted, because perception is 90 percent of what the
public thinks, to get those people off of his lap.
Q. Did the Chandler family seem to remain during the entire
show sitting with Michael?
A. Oh, of course. Yes.
Q. Okay. And were there other stops on that trip?
A. To Paris. We flew from Los Angeles to Paris, and Paris to
Nice, and we helicoptered to
Q. Okay. Do you recall attending any other events with Mr. Jackson
on the trip to Monaco?
A. Of course, His Royal Highness Prince Albert hosted a reception
for visiting dignitaries, and he had an event when you
go there, they have an event each night for visiting dignitaries.
And there was only one event that Mr. Jackson attended.
Q. And do you recall whether or not the Chandler family were
at that event?
A. They were with him.
Q. And that was because Michael insisted that the Chandler family
A. I dont know whether he insisted whether they attend
A. But all of his guests were invited.
Q. Okay. Were there any other guests of Michael Jackson that
you havent named?
A. No, just the Chandler family.
So Michael not only insisted that ordinary children
should sit next to the Prince of Monaco, but that an ordinary
family should attend the reception for visiting dignitaries
and be treated there as such too? Isnt it bringing
a new perspective into the whole story? Most pop stars would
leave their companions at the hotel while they make their dazzling
appearance at a royal ceremony and reception all by themselves
but not Michael Jackson
Diane Dimond described the scene of Jordan sitting on
Michaels lap during the awards ceremony as something completely
revolting: He was bouncing Jordan up and down on his
lap. His nickname for the boy was Rubber. He was whispering
My God, how could she know about
Michael whispering anything to anyone? Did she ask the Prince
of Monaco about it? And did he honor her with a gossip answer?
Well, I also had a look at that video of the ceremony
and the primary things attracting my attention were the following:
1) Jordan was NOT sitting in Michaels lap and Michael
was NOT bouncing him at all. If you look at Michael moving
with the rhythm youll notice that Jordan is completely
static, which means that he is sitting on Michaels seat
and not on Michaels lap (See the video at 3:30)
2) Half the time it was Jordans sister LILY who was
really sitting on Michaels lap (see 2:06, 2:30, 4:15
and 4:44 where you can see it clearly). In fact the ceremony
must have been long and the children were evidently tired and
so they shuffled from Michael Jackson to Linda Evans and back.
See for yourselves:
And it is no surprise that Bob Jones didnt understand what
was going on there in the first row he was sitting some
20 feet away from them and couldnt see or understand what
Michael was doing:
19 Q. Now, going to the music awards, what was the
20 nature of the physical contact that you saw with
21 them at the World Music Awards?
22 A. Jordie sat on his lap.
23 Q. Where were you seated?
24 A. I sat a distance away from June, her
25 daughter, and Jordie and Michael.
26 Q. How many feet away were you when you were
27 observing Mr. Jackson and Mr. Chandler together?
28 A. Oh, I would say approximately 20 feet.
Has any of us ever asked a question if Michael
could do without the Chandlers at the awards-giving ceremony
in Monaco at all?
I have wondered about it and my answer is EASILY he could
have easily left them at the hotel to watch the ceremony on
TV. Then WHY did he take all the Chandlers to the ceremony instead?
It is because Michael wanted the children to have an experience
they could remember for the rest of their lives. That is why
he made a gesture very much characteristic of him he
moved them to the front row next to the Prince of Monaco thus
showing that the children deserved only the very best in life.
Bob Jones evidently didnt think so and that is why all
the seats were already assigned by him and other officials to
other dignitaries in the first row excluding the children,
so Michael had to seat them where he could - Jordan on
the edge of his own seat and Lily on his lap.
Would he have done that if there was any molestation
really taking place? I doubt it very much indeed
only a perverse mind like DDs could come up with a highly
perverse idea like that.
And would Jordan have looked that happy if only half
an hour before that things had gone out of hand
as June and Jordan later described it? What a crazy idea
A photo taken in Nice of Michael and his guests the Chandlers
after the World Music Awards. I think he appears as if he was
equally as fond of Lily as he was of Jordan.
But why would Michael give so much attention to someone elses
Let me refer you to some short quotes from Michaels testimonial
tapes with Rabbi Shmuley they do give an insight into
Michaels inner world and show that it was SO much different
from that of Diane Dimonds, Victor Gutierrez and
Jacques Perettis that they are like those parallels which,
as you know, never cross each other:
I think, children worship fun, love, they worship attention.
They want a fun-filled day. Things that, when you experience
it with them you have a special place in their heart forever.
It changes who they become and what our world becomes, the totality
of what happens in this universe becomes. It is the future.
When I see children I see helpless little puppies.
They are so sweet. How can anyone hurt them? All children are
our children. I see beauty in all children and I love them all
equally. I used to have arguments about it with people
who didnt agree with me. They say you should love your
Im not easy and I know Im not easy. Because
I give all my time to someone else. I give it to children, I
give it to somebody sick somewhere, to the music
P.S. The Veritas Project says that Ray Chandlers book
provides Michaels note to Jordan which in Rays opionion
means something awful. Ive read it and to me it is just
another proof of Michaels belief in Jordan and
his great future in entertainment industry his dance
was indeed so awesome that he stopped people in the street at
the age of 8 (according to Ray Chandler).
The note also shows Michaels affection for the whole
family and his particular fondness for Lily and her mother June.
It is also sadly clear that at the time he thought the family
was very much like him and it was a spirit of kinship that was
making them as one:
[Boy's name], youre
not only my cousin but also my best friend. I cant stop
loving your mother and sister. I have found true love in all
of you. If more people were like us the world would change instantly.
I have such golden dreams for you. I want you to be a giant
in the industry. You are my new inspiration. I love you. Doo
doo head. Applehead. Disneyland soon. Love, doo doo. Call soon,
bye, doo doo head. Tell Mom I love her.
Tell Mom I love her
