The Greatest Show on Earth. The Show Begins… BARNUM&BAILEY CIRCUS. Part 6

 As I have promised we return to Barnum’s circus. 

March 5, 2009. Press Conference


La Estrella: "http://www.newsru.com/cinema/26mar2009/jackson.html
During his concerts Michael Jackson is going to enter the stage on elephant back.
Published on March 26, 2009


As if the circus surrounding Michael Jackson’s series of London comeback concerts planned for the O2 Arena wasn’t strange enough, the singer is reported to have demanded an elephant on which to make his entrance, as well as an assortment of panthers, monkeys and wild birds, all of which will contribute to a jungle theme to his shows.

According to the Daily Mirror, the 50-year-old king of pop (pictured) has even requested 100 Masaii warriors for the series of 50 live gigs – an entourage that O2 Arena management are not believed to be keen on. “He hopes to make it the most spectacular gig ever,” an unnamed source told the paper. “For the jungle section, he wants to ride out on an African elephant with panthers led on gold chains. Parrots and other birds will fly behind him. If it goes to plan it will look incredible." 

As we know it didn’t work out))))). And in my opinion, he exaggerated the situation on purpose…

But nevertheless, there were elephants.” 

So, June 25, 2009.  The things happen the way they happen.

A photo of the Michael’s bed, on which he was going thorough resuscitation, is leaked to the press. Many people paid their attention to the number of things present in the room.

Ines: “Did we have that photo of Holmby Hill’s room taken after the accident? Where did the Germans get it from? Maybe it is a fake one as well…”

Report says:

There on the floor at the bottom of the bed is a used AMBU BAG – a manual pump device used by medics to force air through a mask and into the lungs to keep an unconscious patient alive.
This was part of Dr Murray’s kit and the INSTRUCTION LEAFLET is alongside.

The see-through curl of plastic tubing linking the bag and mask appears to have collected pools of liquid. Parts of the tube have a red or brown discoloration. This is likely to be the result of expelled moisture in the breath and evidence the device HAS been used.
On a wheeled trolley to the left of the photo (which we are not publishing online but which is available in our printed edition) is more medical equipment.
ALCOHOL PREPARATION PADS used for cleaning the skin before drug injections, a roll of SURGICAL TAPE and a box of disposable LATEX GLOVES. On the bedside table is a large landline PHONE. It isn’t known if this is the one used by bodyguard Alberto Alvarez to dial 911 when his boss failed to respond to Murray’s efforts.
Abandoned on the bed is a string of Middle Eastern-style PRAYER BEADS, worn by Jackson around his neck and clearly visible in our picture. “There’s a mystery around who gave them to Michael but he loved to wear them,” said our insider.
Bizarrely, what looks just like an INCONTINENCE PAD sits in the centre of the bed, possibly covering blood or other stains. The length of blue ribbon alongside is believed to have been used as a MAKESHIFT TOURNIQUET, to bind the star’s arm and find a vein so drugs could be administered. The duvet is pulled to one side and, incredibly, there is still a slight DENT made by dying Jacko’s head in the plumped-up pillow, up against the ornate gold-painted headboard.
Oddly, a tube of Crest TOOTHPASTE lies apparently unopened on the bed. An insider said this had no relevance to the resuscitation, but Jacko, 50, was obsessed with dental hygiene and had tubes of the stuff all over the house.
On the side table is also a half-drunk bottle of ORANGE. The insider told us: “It was MJ’s. He was trying to stay healthy.”
On the shelf above there’s a near-full bottle of FIJI MINERAL WATER, the fashionable brand favored by celebrities. Another almost-empty bottle is on the glass-topped trolley nearby. Almost hidden under the duvet you can see the legs of a TOY DOLL that usually sat on top of the bed.
Alongside is a DVD or CD. Back on the bedside table sits a SPECTACLES CASE. Both the star and Dr Murray wore glasses but our source said: “Jacko had many pairs, and their cases, lying about all over the house.”
Out of view of the camera, according to our insider, are oxygen bottles used to treat the star as part of his heavy-duty prescription drugs regime.
These shocking photos of Michael Jackson’s Deathbed, where Dr. Murray tried to resuscitate him (first on the bed, then on the rug-covered wooden floor), were taken the day after he died by a family insider at his rented mansion in North Carolwood Drive, Los Angeles.


If we analyze the things found in the room, though it may sound strange, but it will lead us to illusionists again.

Bebbit : “Girls, have you noticed that people from http://www.michaeljacksonhoaxdeath.com/ who investigated the “deathbed” have come up with Barnum? Here is an interesting post…” 

That News of the World photo was clearly staged but was it sold to them as just another example of the media who will print anything given to them.
I believe there are things in that photo that are very odd and are therefore clues telling us that Michael staged this whole event.
I wanted to summarise all the posts I have made on this with a couple of other observations:
Warning : These theories involve PT Barnum who was Michael’s inspiration. If you don’t support the other PT Barnmum links then this is not the post for you. Some of the links may seem tenuous but maybe we need to think laterally.
The links to the threads are shown if you want to follow it up further.
I am convinced that this whole event has been planned and that Michael wants us to work it out. This picture is just part of the puzzle we need to solve!
1. The Fiji Mineral water (why this brand?  – PT Barnum Fiji Mermaid)
2. The unopened toothpaste – PT Barnum advertising claims and Pepsodent toothpaste advertising
3. Porcelain doll – Jenny Lind (singer who Barnum promoted heavily through merchandising including porcelain dolls)
4. Orange juice – PT Barnum Speculation in Oranges
5. The Middle Eastern Prayer Beads/Turkish Rug and the Cushion
The middle eastern link is to a house. PT Barnmum built 4 homes, the main one was a Moorish revival mansion which was his ‘country seat’. He called it IRANISTAN. Here is a picture of it. There is more on Wikipedia about it.
Sadly this beautiful palace was burnt down and the fire was believed to have been started by a workman who left a lit pipe on a cushion from the circular seat in the dome.
6. The incontinence pad  – Schlitzie the Pinhead
This one was a real challenge. How about this…Schlitzie the Pinhead was a sideshow performer who worked with Barnum circus amongst others. ‘She’ was actually a ‘he’ and wore a dress.
‘Most sources say the choice to dress him like this was also due to his incontinence, as Schlitzie had to wear diapers and such clothing made it easier to care for him.[6]’
It does go on to say ‘However, even this is debatable, as most pictures show that Schlitzie was in fact wearing pants under his dress and some who knew him have said that he didn’t develop incontinence until later in life[3].’ Make of this what you will…..
7. The Tourniquet – link to The Residents
‘The Residents are an American avant-garde music and visual arts group. They have created over sixty albums, created numerous musical short films, designed three CD-ROM projects and ten DVDs, and undertaken seven major world tours. Throughout their career, spanning nearly four decades, they have not disclosed their identity.’
Their Freak Show CD Rom was dedicated to PT Barnum.
‘The Residents’ Freak Show CD-ROM transforms your computer into an amazing animated twilight zone, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Meet Tex the Barker, Herman the Human Mole, Harry the Head, Wanda the Worm Woman, Jelly Jack, Benny the Bump, and those freaks of contemporary art, The Residents. See their incredible performances and navigate through bizarre backstage worlds.
Freak Show’s Big Top offers amazing spectacles, but the freaks’ stranger-than-fiction stories come magically to life when you sneak behind the circus tent and into their trailers. Discover fetishes, fantasies, rituals, and tragic secrets through photos, comics, music, music videos, and animation. You can even explore the history of freaks. Your fascination with “difference” will ultimately illuminate many other paths through this theme park of the imagination. Featuring spectacular animation designed by Jim Ludtke, Freak Show is a revolutionary new audio-visual experience, envisioning the future of interactive stories, music video, and digital art.’
Tourniquet of Roses was the original title of another of their albums.
8. Oxygen Mask
There is a link to the name of a man named Barnum who patented an oxygen mask in 1911. This was clearly no link to PT Barnum himself who died in 1891 but still interesting that the name was the same.
‘U.S. Pat. No. 1,000,706, issued to Barnum on Aug. 15, 1911, … provides an unsophisticated and cumbersome respirator mask which was secured by several elastic straps and covered a large area of the bearer’s lower face…  Barnum’s mask lacked several safeguards necessary for use in a clinical hospital setting’
Add all this to the other PT Barnum references like:
TMZ acting as the ‘brickman’ (see post relating to this)
Joice Seth – Barnum’s claim that the autopsy for this woman was done on the wrong body (?)
Ringling Barnum Circus just happened to be arriving in LA on the day of Michael’s funeral.
Also the similarity between the way he ‘died’ and that of Barnum:
One of the requests made by Mr. Barnum was that, when all hope was gone, sedatives which would make his passage to the next world more peaceful be administered. About 4 o’clock this morning the veteran showman spoke his last words. He was asked if he wished a drink of water, and answered, “Yes.” Soon after he sank into a lethargy. It was difficult to arouse him from this state, and on opening his eyes a faint gleam of recognition alone indicated that he had knowledge of his surroundings, or knew those about him. All day long Mr. Barnum lay in a semi-unconscious state. About 10 o’clock the first sedative was administered, and repeated several times during the day.

And of course, I couldn’t skip the post of kto_nado, who draws parallel between MJ and Harry Houdini on http://jacksonlive.mybb.ru/viewtopic.php?id=238#p55787

There is no accidental thing in this room, and there is a connection and an allusion to the greatest illusionist of all times – Houdini. 

Harry Houdini (March 24, 1874 – October 31, 1926, born Erik Weisz later spelled Ehrich Weiss) was a Hungarian American magician and escapologist, stunt performer, actor and film producer. He was also a skeptic who set out to expose frauds purporting to be supernatural phenomena.


Harry Houdini died of peritonitis secondary to a ruptured appendix. It has been speculated that Houdini was killed accidentally by a McGill University student, J. Gordon Whitehead, who delivered multiple blows to Houdini’s abdomen (with permission) while he was in Montreal, in order to test Houdini’s claim that he was able to take a blow to the body above the waist without injury.
The eyewitnesses were students named Jacques Price and Sam Smilovitz (sometimes called Jack Price and Sam Smiley). Their accounts generally agreed. The following is Price’s description of events:
Houdini was reclining on his couch after his performance, having an art student sketch him. When Whitehead came in and asked if it was true that Houdini could take any blow to the stomach, Houdini replied groggily in the affirmative. In this instance, he was hit three times before Houdini could tighten up his stomach muscles to avoid serious injury. Whitehead reportedly continued hitting Houdini several more times and Houdini acted as though he were in some pain.
Houdini stated that if he had time to prepare himself properly he would have been in a better position to take the blows.
Houdini had apparently been suffering from appendicitis for several days prior and yet refused medical treatment. His appendix would likely have burst on its own without the trauma. Although in serious pain, Houdini nonetheless continued to travel without seeking medical attention.
When Houdini arrived at the Garrick Theater in Detroit, Michigan on October 24, 1926, for what would be his last performance, he had a fever of 104°F (40°C). Despite a diagnosis of acute appendicitis, Houdini took the stage. He was reported to have passed out during the show, but was revived and continued. Afterwards, he was hospitalized at Detroit’s Grace Hospital. Houdini died of peritonitis from a ruptured appendix at 1:26 p.m. in Room 401 on October 31 (Halloween), 1926, at the age of 52.
After taking statements from Price and Smilovitz, Houdini’s insurance company concluded that the death was due to the dressing-room incident and paid double indemnity


Where is the connection?

Tooth paste – before becoming popular, Houdini earned his living by selling soap and toothpaste.

Orange juice – in Holland there is a sort of tulip which is called Houdini Orange.

Fiji mineral water – in his tricks Houdini used his know-how – special fastening lines called Fijians. 

We keep searching for other things, for example, the doll. Houdini possessed a doll of himself one of the first.

Now think what Blanket had at the memorial? A doll of his dad…

And those beads on the bed.

It is there on purpose, Michael always wore it and of course they want to make us think that it was taken off during the resuscitation. We would have thought so if everything had been so simple J

In fact, it is also a big message, but I don’t know yet what one. People, think. This is the greatest puzzle in the world.

This one is to make you smile. Michael is a frequent customer at Houdini store, and here he makes some notes about the purchase J

The connection with him is OBVIOUS. And this photo of bed says about it almost openly

crime scene is a location wherein evidence of a crime may be found. Crime scene reconstruction is the use of scientific methods, physical evidence, deductive reasoning, and their interrelationships to gain explicit knowledge of the series of events that surround the commission of a crime.)

July 7, 2009. The Memorial

kto_nado: “As we remember Michael has promised to make his funeral be THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH. That
is Barnums Circus))))))). It was his circus that had performance in Staples Center on July 6, followed by Michael’s performance on July, 7.”


La Estrella:

"Eleven Asian elephants and seven horses from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus lumbered from Union Station toward the Staples Center early Tuesday, where the memorial service for Jackson was to be held."

This is what I liked most of all:
LOS ANGELES — Hours before a public memorial for Michael Jackson, a herd of elephants were on the march through downtown Los Angeles in a fitting start to a circus-like day.
I have nothing to add! He is a genius indeed))))

Elephants could really mean the beginning of The Greatest Show on Earth!

Here it says in black and white))))))))))

July 5th was the 200 years anniversary of P.T. Barnum. And now remember Michael’s words, “See you in July”.

Гуру: "Let me add something else.))
"About the circus…
I wonder why no one paid attention to THIS fact. Right after Michael announced his shows on press conference in London, mass media released the reports saying that JACKSON’S SHOW IS GOING TO START WITH THE ANIMALS ENTERING THE STAGE: ELEPHANT, PANTER, PARROTS, MONKEYS and other animals. Few hours before the Memorial the animals were leaving the Staples Center (elephants, monkeys, etc.)

It meant that the SHOW HAD BEGUN!

Moreover, it was the BARNUM’S CIRCUS, the man who created THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH!!!

Michael wanted his funeral to be THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH so much!!!”
