This blog is a continuation of www.vindicatemj.wordpress.com
For reasons which are widely known in the narrow circle of Michael’s supporters the above blog had to be shut it up for an indefinite time.
However the introductory text I wrote for the first blog remains relevant and now even more than ever. So here it is, together with a short comment on how the first blog started.
Vindicatemj (Helena, Russia)
This piece by Johann Sebastian Bach is called “Air”. It is accompanied by a picture of Moses who is desperate with his people who started praying to a Golden Calf while he was away carrying God’s commandments to them. The picture is dedicated to all those who also pray to the Golden Calf and are ready to lie about an innocent human being like Michael Jackson for money, fame, career or other reasons.

It is a complete shame I hadn’t been among Michael Jackson’s supporters before he died. When all those awful allegations against him reached my part of the world in mid-90s I couldn’t withstand the general wave of mistrust towards Michael and half-believed the horrible rumors about him saying to myself that “there couldn’t be smoke without fire” and “if so many people think that way they can’t be all wrong about it”.
However the thought of a nice guy like that being probably involved in such a terrible crime was so uneasy and disquieting that I preferred to thrust it into the very back of my mind and forget about the whole thing until after he died.
The news of Michael’s death brought a sudden feeling of sadness and a renewed interest in his personality while the strange circumstances of his tragic demise made me read and watch whatever there was to read and watch about him at the time. The result of this little research was quite unexpected – the more Michael’s videos I saw and the more of his speeches and interviews I read, the surer was a terrible guess creeping into my mind – he was completely innocent…. to an extent we can’t even imagine…. how could we be that wrong …. what a shame on all our heads…. it’s almost like some 2000 years ago with that old story repeating itself……nothing changed, nothing learned…. is there a way to make up for it?
The feeling of guilt, remorse and a terrible harm which cannot be undone has gripped me every since and is unbearable to live with. So now you know the reason for this blog – these posts are just a humble attempt to repent and make up for all the injustice I personally did to Michael Jackson by half-believing those nonstop lies about him told by the bloodthirsty, money-craving, small-minded and completely delirious media about the man whom they did not take the trouble to really know and whose little finger they are not worthy of.
Besides the attempt to vivisect lies about Michael and clear his name of all the dirt thrown at him in such a ruthless and shameless way this blog is also a kind of Michael’s memorabilia with all sorts of facts, evidences, testimonies, observations and opinions about him collected from various sources and provided by different people many of whom have come to appreciate this pure and innocent guy only after his untimely death.
The man we learned to admire and miss so late in our lives.
The history of the vindicatemj and vindicatemjj blogs:
The blog www.vindicatemj.wordpress.com started on November 20, 2009. This is how it came into being.
In November 2009 I received a message from a MJ fan called MJJmahal. She said she wanted to collect all my posts made on the MichaelJackson forum under the name of helena1247 and told me that she had opened a blog for me in the name of Vindicatemj.
She gave me this name due to the Vindicating Michael thread which I opened in the MJ forum soon after Michael’s death and was handling practically all alone until February 2010.
This is the note she left for the readers of the blog in November 2009:
November 21, 2009
These are helena1247’s posts from http://www.michaeljackson.com. I created a blog for them for my own selfish reasons. Given my short attention span, I need a format with links that will allow me to access the articles with ease.
I sincerely thanked MJJmahal for this big and surprising gift but, to be frank with you and her, didn’t know what to do with the blog as I had not idea how to handle it and all my attention was focused on the forum anyway. However when some wellwishers deleted my ‘Vindicating Michael’ multi-post thread in the michaeljackson.com forum, there was no other alternative but continue writing in the new blog. This is when I wrote this short note to MJJmahal:
February 25, 2010
Thank you very much, dear MJJmahal. I’m taking over from you now and hope to be able to manage this blog myself or with those of my fellow-fans who are also willing to stand for Michael Jackson’s good name side by side with me. However the blog will first need a huge renovation. I am currently learning how to do that and hope to restart the updated version of this blog in a not too distant future.
You see that the blog was not planned and was quite spontaneous even for me. Since it started as a selfless gift from one Michael Jackson’s supporter to another one – which is truly in Michael’s spirit – I wanted to go on with this generous tradition and invited others who were also willing to do vindication work for Michael.
In August 2010 the blog was joined by David Edwards, Lynette Anderson, Deborah French and later by several other authors.
Beginning with the winter of 2012 some changes started taking place there which finally erupted into the need to close the blog at all. For some details of the above you can go to the “About the blog” page, however since it displays only a fraction of what happened the rest of it can be grasped only if you read the full of the blog together with its comments (which contain a huge part of valuable information).
Reading the whole of it together with the comments is what I urge everyone to do if they really want to make sure of Michael Jackson’s innonence as the blog has the overwhelming proof of it.
This follow-up to the first blog includes only my posts, i.e. those of Helena (Vindicatemj), the administrator of both blogs.
No new posts have yet been added to it and probably never will, however if there are any rumors that I have ceased to exist or abandoned Michael they are not true to life.
