Count the Jackson’s

This is just one more item to remove from the backlog, and should be very short, as I don’t feel like working today. (I have a whole bunch of Barbara Walters photos and people who are certain there were not two Walters, but three or more over the years. So I am going to do one more Walters post over the weekend to see where that leads. Where there’s smoke … )

This is Miles W. Mathis from his paper Proof That John Lennon Faked His Death, page 38:

“We have one more turn of the screw before we get back to Lennon. If you are already sitting down,you may want to lie down for this one. When Blackstone faked the death of Jackson, they didn’t really fake Jackson’s death. They faked the death of Jackson’s body double. The real Michael Jackson has been living in Abu Dhabi for many years. The guy in the news during the past decade is Jackson’s body double, who took over all public appearances after about 2001. The guy with the tiny sharp nose: that isn’t even Jackson. It is the body double who was scheduled to go on world tour and whose death was faked. It was the body double they had to whisk away in the fake ambulance and the body double they had to relocate. The real Michael Jackson had relocated long ago.”

I thought this ought to be easy enough, as the last Michael Jackson was a freak show with a button nose and square jaw that looked nothing like the original. Here are a couple of photos.

Can they look any different? The left is 1977, the right sometime in the late 2000s, shortly before his “death.” There were rumors all around that Jackson was going through whitening treatments or had a skin condition, but that had to be misdirection. Look at the noses! They can perform some feats of magic with plastic surgery, but I doubt they can turn a robust nose like that into a little button without altering the bone structure. For what reason? Jackson was a good looking man, while his replacement creeps me.

So I went back and grabbed a bunch of Jackson photos, paying attention to the noses.

You tell me … how many Jocko’s have there been? I see at least three noses.

  1. Reminds me of the old joke about how Jackson is the perfect American success story… A poor black boy who became a rich white girl…

    That skin whitening silliness shows how far they can take things and have us believe them. I guess in his case they had to find someone who could dance well enough and match the faces secondarily.

  2. It’s my opinion that this sort of thing goes on all the time, especially since the 1960s. Look at photos of David Bowie through the years. There were at least two Bowies, possibly three or more. Look at Eric Clapton, and Bob Dylan too … and many others.

    It’s surprisingly easy to fool the public this way. You don’t even need a twin, really. Just show somebody else who looks somewhat similar and say it’s the same person and the public completely ignores the fact that the new one doesn’t look much like the old one. They just swallow it without a second thought.

    1. Eric “The Slowhand” is one of my guitar idols, as much as Jimmy Hendrix, Richie Blackmore or Jimmy Page. I hear you though, but still can see similarities between young & old Clapton. I may be completely wrong, obviously biased:


      We once had a small discussion, I believe it was in the McCartney post here, saying that some of these musicians were actually extremely talented guys and gals. All of the above are irreplaceable in terms of playing style, on-stage performance and composition, as these all leave distinctive attributes for identification through decades. In my opinion, possibly only identical twins and triplets could step in for their brothers, on the condition they’re as much talented as their counterparts (as in the case of Presley or sir Faul). That’s why they’re “overdosed” them so many, removing them from the scene permanently – you can’t create a really talented switch for a really talented performer (and possibly even compositor), who at the same time looks exactly like his brother. Even twins can be easily distinguished between once you’ve looked at their faces for long enough, though. An assumption that everything is written and can be credited to some Intel committee, does not mean these guys aren’t an important team member of such committee. I’m absolutely sure that Leonard Cohen was a member of such creative committee, if they really exist. Or am I being just ultimately naive, thinking that anybody from the “rock-star” world actually gets credited for any creative work?

        1. There was that odd “heroin” absence from 1970-1974. Duane Allman did most of the heavy lifting on “Layla” and the “Eric Clapton” from 1970 was very much a collaborative effort. So perhaps, after Cream, we’ve been taking it on Blind Faith that it’s the same, Clapton. In the 70’s he backed away from the guitar god label, started using a Stratocaster and leaning on J.J. Cale. Maybe all of the post Cream stuff is really Cale.

          Then there’s the George Harrison/Patty Boyd triangle, and Clapton playing on the Beatles White Album. O.K., I’m starting to get a little freaked out.

          1. You’ve said that so well, kudos. J.J. Cale had a magic touch for the guitar, that’s for sure, playing it with his fingers instead of picks, like Knopfler did, and both of them could play it live even better then in studio recordings. Only masters of their instruments can do that on the stage, and in my opinion, Clapton is still in this club.

            In my research, I have no problem destroying actors and actresses, but I tread lightly on musicians because I respect musical ability too much. MM once said something disparaging about Alison Krauss and I emailed him to say, “You’re probably correct, but in this case, I choose ignorance.” To his credit, he understood. I mean, that’s the voice of an angel fallen from heaven if I ever heard one.

            One of the little things that draws me to Mathis is how spot on he’s been about singers that have been overhyped. Whatever really happened to her, Whitney Houston had all the soul and nuance of a modulated fog horn, and MM captured that perfectly. I’d never paid much attention to Tom Waits, so put off MM’s article until ACL ran a re-run of a Waits concert. I pulled up the article while I listened, and he nailed it.

            Haven’t looked into whether his death was real or Memorex, but Jaco Pastorius was incredibly talented. If he got reassigned to CNN, somebody’s head should roll.

  3. This is a slippery slope with MJ. I think MM is right about him being alive in the Middle East. I think that looking into MJ will shine a huge spotlight on the Fakery that surrounds Us on so many levels. MJ was friends with Jane Spook Fonda, Steven Rumored Pedo Spielberg, Yoko and Sean Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Madonna. Then there is the alleged sales of Thriller and the manipulation of the music charts, the 3 kids, Debbie Rowe etc. It would seem that his trial was him being the scape goat for all the other famous pedos. To me the place to start would be with the whole Northern Songs music publishing sale. Who bought it from MJ? Studying the tour that wasn’t insurance lawsuits after his death might shine some light on AIG and the shady way that company operates. Disney, transgender, pedophilia, surrogate pregnancy, Black vs White, money laundrying, fake trials and corrupt courts are just some of the hallmarks of his career. Good luck.

Back to the subject of twins, I recall seeing Elvis in one of his movies when I was around 10 years old. I could have sworn it was not Elvis, he just looked different somehow, and his guitar playing seemed very strained. I completely forgot about it until I read Miles’s piece decades later. I think the setting was in Germany or something. One other thing I have noticed in the past few years is that there is mucho talente in the third world. Some of these performers and musicians could run circles around Hollywood’s best. No doubt in my mind. I often hear George Carlin’s voice reminding me….”Hey, it’s a club and you’r not in it.” BTW I’m making progress on 3 other works. Van Dam, 7 cities of Cibola, and The 80’s S&L Scam.

  6. McGowan in his Weird Scenes book does divulge one secret, treating it as an accident or coincidence, and that is the assembly of the “Wrecking Crew” by Phil Spector (who is now serving a fake jail sentence for a fake murder). These are the real and talented musicians who play behind the scenes while others talented at writing music (Cohen and Simon?) provide the songs. They are studio musicians and faceless writers. Among them was Glen Campbell, who broke from the pack and had a public career, but that is the exception. (Some guy who was the drummer for a band, obscure, said that he was shocked to learn that his ten favorite drummers growing up were all Hal Blaine.**) By and large they lacked the looks and and ability to perform in public in such a way that the audience is turned on. I wonder if Clapton and Harrison, like Campbell, were also studio musicians who broke through. (Interesting tidbits from memory, neither George nor Eric relished being alone on stage and sought refuge in groups, like the Wilbury’s.)

    The ability to compose pop (or any) music , to play musical instruments, to sing, and to perform it live … I think it highly unlikely that all of that is going to manifest in one person, so it seems natural that the person who performs on stage is benefited by ghosting behind the stage, and that the songs he performs are written by still others and the recordings are by ghosts. McCartney survives because he can sing well enough to pass, but his fingers form a claw and he bangs on the piano keys, merely hitting the right chords, and no, he did not write the music – or if you remember bad songs he performed (Vanilla Sky), then yes, he might have written them. In the early days of the switch from left-handed to right-handed “Paul” they hid him behind the keyboard, but he had not yet learned enough of key banging so we never saw both him and his fingers playing at once.

    Here I am writing another damned post. Yes, there are very talented musicians and song writers and lyricists around, they give us the sound track of our lives. We hear them, but don’t see them. The really gifted musician and performer, like Campbell (who could still do the opening riff for Fun Fun Fun deep into Alzheimer’s) is a rarity.

    1. Not sure Paul Simon even writes all his songs. I recall reading many years ago in Spy Magazine how he failed to give credit to the group Los Lobos for a song they wrote. I found reference in this Rolling Stone article, which ties him into a world of psyops, of course.

      https://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/paul-simons-graceland-10-things-you-didnt-know-w435711

      Here’s a quote from the article, from Steve Berlin of Los Lobos:

      “We go into the studio, and he had quite literally nothing,” he said in 2008. “I mean, he had no ideas, no concepts, and said, ‘Well, let’s just jam.'” One full day of playing failed to yield any results, but something caught Simon’s attention on day two. “Paul goes, ‘Hey, what’s that?’ We start playing what we have of it, and it is exactly what you hear on the record. So we’re like, ‘Oh, OK. We’ll share this song.'” When Los Lobos found no trace of their names on the album’s writing credits, they initially assumed that it had been an honest mistake. But when months went by with no restitution, the band’s bemusement turned to anger. “It was not a pleasant deal for us,” maintains Berlin. “I mean he quite literally – and in no way do I exaggerate when I say – he stole the song from us.”

      Every sport needs an ‘evil empire.’ Such teams are ratings magnets as people love to root against them, hope they fail. In baseball it has traditionally been the Yankees, a team that despite low draft choices continually comes up with rookies of remarkable quality.

        Tony Romo may have figured out his role by now, as he was giddy about the Pats winning, and making ridiculous comments about how the pass rushers wear out as the game goes on, so they have to get to Brady early. What about the offensive line? And how come the Jags were the only team to wear out, on both sides of the ball?

        And how do you run 8 yards on a sweep to ice the game when the whole defense knows you’re going to run? The refs ignored an obvious holding penalty, but where was the rest of the defense?

I think it is a very rare exception when a skilled artist is allowed to get famous and is then really performing on stage using his own body and face. Sometimes they get caught. Milli Vanilli for instance (created by the German Frank Farian, nobody of you ever heard of, who also created many older famous super stars like Boney M). In Germany there was (and still is) that famous trumpeter Stefan Mross who became famous as a child and later there were claims he can hardly play at all. So what? Milli Vanilly looked good on stage. Doesn’t matter if it consists of two good looking guys dancing on the stage, some musicians playing in the background and other persons writing their songs? There are always producers, directors, writers and actors involved. I think they constantly look for skilled persons to create new role models for our entertainment but it is an industry. It’s entertainment. It’s show business. As for Eric Clapton btw., he is not a skilled musician. He can hardly play guitar. That’s why he has to be famous as Mr. slow hand. Eddie Van Halen in comparison to him is a real musician who produces his own music and performs everything in person.

In the same manner, King has produced a long string of, if nothing else, highly creative books (I’ve only read It and The Stand) that continually catch the public’s eye. Maybe that is where the notion that he fronts for a writing committee has more merit, as the output of artists over time usually diminishes in quality.

The latest Ken Follett war trilogy reads in parts like written by many different persons. Michael Crichton books come from the same source as Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter series. Harris wrote only one small book called “Black Sunday” himself. It’s not very good.

          1. SK was 31 when he wrote The Stand. He explains that in his book on writing.
            Another interesting case is David Mitchell, the author of “the cloud atlas” and 8 (!!!) books in total where his latest 8-th book called “From Me Flows What You Call Time” won’t be published until 2114. It seems to be his last book. The other seven are great reads. Very educated.

          2. SK is 70 years old now. He’s getting weaker in his latest books. Also he writes with his son now. There may be no real SK books in future anymore. I think, they let writers write bestsellers as long as they obey and stick to the script. They can be easily controlled. It is easy to make a former bestseller writer a non-bestseller writer. They just stop promoting them. It is not that easy to make a movie or music star a non-star. Actors or musicians live in front of the camera. Even very bad actors still stay stars in the media. They also can bring them back any time, as they did with Travolta. So if they want to “unstar” an actor permanently, he has to “die”.

          3. Way back in my 30s I would wander up and down teh fiction section of the library looking for authors who had published a lot of books, and found Ludlum. I loved the guy and read everything he wrote. I don’t remember the particular book but know he died half way through it and another author picked up. I could tell exactly where that spot occurred in the book, tossed it and have never looked at another.

          4. You may recall that one of MM’s guest writers did some excellent research on Ludlum connecting him to the George Huntington Hartford, head of the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Compan (A&P). That guest writer concluded, “I bet most of his books were written by Intelligence and they just put his name on them.”

            In some of my recent research, I also connected the old cowboy actor Harry Carey/Harry Carey, Jr. to this same family. His mother Ella Ludlum, cousin of George Huntington Hartford’s wife, Marie Josephine Ludlum.

    1. I never believed in the transformation from a regular negro boy to a semi white adult. To big the differences. Also his style changed a lot. The Jackson Five MJ was as funky as Earth, Wind and Fire. The Thriller MJ was like a character of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Later he became some kind of dancing actor. They played the same scheme with races like they are playing now with sexes. Like there is no races at all and a black person can become white, etc. I even saw something recently somewhere in the media where a white person wants to become black. I think, they used at least three different persons for the different stages of life of one Michael Jackson. The middle one first made more black than he really was and later more white. Also MJ wasn’t neither a good dancer or a good singer. His shows always needed a lot of support from huge teams of dancers to make him look better. He is mostly known for his moon walking style. Even Justin Bieber does that in his latest clip.

        1. Black people can look very black or almost white depending on light conditions. See O.J. Simpson. But it definitely is a case of ethnic mainstreaming. You can also lighten the skin to a some degree using cosmetics. But not permanently.

    2. It can be surgically altered according to this guy:

      “Retraction of the lower lid, giving the eye a distinctive rounded shape, is a common complication following cosmetic surgery—specifically lower-lid blepharoplasty, which removes lines and tightens the skin. Fear not, though: plastic surgeons have developed a second cosmetic procedure to remedy the effects of procedure numero uno, basically by raising the whole cheek below, thus creating enough slack to restore the shape of the eye and cover up that extra sclera.”

  12. Noticed the ‘final’ Straight post and am hearing a bit on the net about ‘Q’ … ‘TYLER’ etc … ‘Catcher in the Rye’ anagrams ‘chicanery tether’ … Tyler Durden contains the word ‘durneder’ … on the wordplays dot com site they use ‘damned for their definition when the word ‘durneder’ is moused … ‘TYLER’ could be ‘try EL’ …. ‘Mary try EL Moore’ ?? … Durden equals ‘333’ ‘satanic’ using the ‘Gematrinator’ that google delivers us … I am wondering how Straight will handle Quinn Michaels in the land of ‘Q’ …. ‘Try EL Durneder’ ??? spooky

  13. Of course there are different noses, as he (reportedly) had several plastic surgeries; Jackson (reportedly) had too much of his nose removed, which caused blood circulation and cartilage problems. And yes, I do believe a plastic surgeon can create a nose like he ended up with–just take a look at the proliferation of freaks online that have dramatically changed their appearances. Here’s a link to some information on the subject, including a plastic surgeon’s analysis; somebody even did some face splits to show it’s the same person. https://www.quora.com/Why-did-Michael-Jackson-undergo-so-much-plastic-surgery

    It’s the EARS you need to compare, as they tend not to change as other facial features do. “Ear prints” are now claimed to be more accurate than fingerprints: “the outer ear may prove to be one of the most accurate and least intrusive ways to identify people…When you’re born your ear is fully formed. The lobe descends a little, but overall it stays the same.” https://www.cse.msu.edu/~rossarun/pubs/RossEarRecognition_IEEECOMP2011.pdf

    After examining dozens of photos of Jackson, I see a changing face, but the ears are still the same. No telling what happened after he started wearing a wig, as his ears no longer are visible. I remember following all this in the media during that time, and thought he was trying to look like his good friend, Diana Ross. There’s no question that he was having an identity crisis: “A boy grows up without a true childhood, he gravitates towards youth in attempt to hold on to it, builds a large estate called Neverland Ranch, and wishes to be more like the free-spirited, mischievous boy that can fly and never grows old – Peter Pan. In addition, potentially struggling with his sexuality and orientation, he also is drawn to Pan’s motherly counterpart, Wendy.”

    Michael Jackson was obviously another project, so the question that REALLY needs to be asked is cui bono? What was the agenda? I see it as the promotion of the arrested development/Peter Pan/transgender/transhuman agenda: Don’t like your looks? Want to change your sex, or look androgynous? Changing yourself is not only easy, but now acceptable! Also throw in some childhood abuse, mental illness, pedophilia and mixed-race offspring, along with several others I’ve probably missed. The agenda was to get these subjects into the public eye and psyche; no matter whether it was to accuse, defend or justify Jackson’s lifestyle choices, the end result is widespread public familiarization and acceptance of those ideas.
