Due to his many health scares, it became impossible to insure Jackson for the tour, particularly when the shysters got greedy and vastly extended the tour, so the promoters had to 'self-insure', meaning they would take all the risk if Jackson in fact couldn't finish the tour. As everybody knew he wouldn't be able to survive the tour, this was unacceptable, and Jackson became more valuable dead than alive. Alive, he would just create more debt to be shared amongst the creditors, with no more assets to pay them off. Dead before the tour, the banksters could divvy up his tangible assets and use his preexisting insurance to cover the rest (they almost certainly had insurance on his life as security for their loans).
Jackson, no dummy, was completely hip to what was going on, and who was stealing from him. "Jew me, Sue me" and "Kick me, Kike me." And (see also here):
"Is Michael Jackson a hardcore, Mel Gibson-style anti-semite, or is this just another case of the Jew-run media trying to make a brother look bad?
If you haven't already heard, tapes have recently been released to the media of Wacko Jackson accusing Jewish people of trying to suck his blood.
To wit:In phone messages obtained by ABC News, the apparently prejudiced pop star likens them to "leeches" and claims they conspired to leave him "penniless."
"They suck...they're like leeches...I'm so tired of it," Jackson tells former adviser Dieter Wiesner in one of them. "The Jews do it on purpose."
The ugly message, which was made two years ago and aired yesterday on "Good Morning America," was one of several provided by Wiesner's lawyer, Howard King.
One can presume that these phone messages were leaked to their cousins in the media by this Wiesner fellow and another fellow named Marc Schaffel, who are currently suing Michael Jackson for money they say he owes them.
Sounds like some pretty shysty business, if you ask me.
Then check out how they try to play Jacko, bringing up old shit from 10 years ago and also the fact that he recently relocated to Jew-hater country out in the Middle East, as if that has to do with anything.Jackson had to apologize to Jewish groups a decade ago after he included lyrics like "Jew me/Sue me/Everybody do me/Kick me/Kike me" on the song "They Don't Care About Us."
Jackson, who relocated to Bahrain after he was acquitted of child molesting charges, did not respond to the revelations.
You know they did that shit on purpose..."
Brothel-owner Wiesner's suit was dismissed, although it appears there may have been some kind of settlement (of course, Jackson let his true feelings out to Wiesner as Wiesner was one of the few financial people around him who wasn't Jewish). Marc Schaffel, whose job before hooking onto Jackson was a gay porn producer/director, only won a small amount of what he originally claimed, and Jackson's countersuit was successful (it is clear that Schaffel was the direct target of Jackson's rant to Wiesner). Jackson lost his ownership of the Beatles catalogue to Sony, run at the time by Tommy Mottola, described by Jackson as the 'devil'.
I think we can assume that Jackson's increasing connections to the Muslim Middle East, and his probable conversion to Islam - after being forced (?) to pick a surrogate Jewish mother for his children (more access to his money) - was partly an attempt to escape the shysters.
The greed of the shysters extended the tour to the point where it was uninsurable. Either the stress of the impossible tour killed him, or they arranged for him to be given a 'hot shot' - a mix of whatever was supposed to be in the shot with heart-attack inducing, and completely undetectable, potassium chloride - to finish him off (note how the mainstream press is suddenly filled with stories of his drug addictions). Either way, they got their pound of flesh.
