Two great quotes

Let's start today's update with a great quote from an American icon, submitted by Dr. David.:

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.  Small people always do that, but the really great,  make you feel that you, too, can become great." 
-- Mark Twain

And here from Randy P., something to remember:



I'm delighted to inform you my request last week for receiving minimal emails was greeted with understanding and respect by most. Therefore I will continue with the current Wednesday & Friday schedule of updates.

Also note: This update is Part A of this week's update. Part B will therefore build upon what I report today. So please keep this one in mind as you read Part B on Friday - thank you.


I am not a religious zealot, however I am a spiritual man. With that said, I hope you will appreciate the following remark:  Every morning this week I have prayed to My Maker to give me the wisdom to make the right decisions regarding everything that is going on with our deal, and the courage to press on despite the overwhelming attacks on me personally.  And not just me but others who are part of this enormous project, and yes, even including threats on family members, children, and relatives who are not even involved to any degree. I will not abandon you as I know My Maker will give me the strength.

Personal / Our deal / I need your help

I'm including our deal in this personal section because the two are knitted closely together. The attacks continue unabated, and as promised I will continue to take the heat. However it's important you know how I feel about all that is happening.

There are people saying some really horrific and ugly things about me, about others involved, and about this deal. In their emails sent, and their social media postings.

It's hard to fathom their goal, their motive. I can only imagine they think they are saving the world from Mike G.

But in fact they are causing damage which results in delays with all this negative noise.

I'm sure many of them will rejoice with the above statement, and I will not elaborate on it any further than to say, "I need your help."

As you know, from the very beginning I have never cowered from who I am, meaning I always use my name, where I am, meaning my physical address, my real email, not some hide behind you can't find me email like protonmail.com, and my personal phone number.

Yet, not one, not a single one of these attackers are willing to even provide their name.


So I ask you, why would they hide if they are speaking the truth? Certainly the whole world knows you cannot be sued for slander or character defamation if you speak the truth. Just watch the news. News stories give you the facts as all reputable media agencies under their own code of ethics require confirmation of everything they report. And why?... Because they also know you can only be sued for slander and defamation if what you say is NOT true.

So here's where I need your help:

When you get an email or see a posting from any of these people. And no need to sink to their level of degradation and insults - just ask them these two questions:

Question 1: Who are you and what is your real name? And are you willing to give me your phone number so I can call you and learn of any facts you have?

and here's the next question...

Question 2: If you are a loan partner in this deal why on God's green earth would you risk jeopardizing or delaying this deal to the detriment of your own self financial interest?

Really... Ask them these questions! Do not be afraid to challenge them. I need your help in this fight. And if they will not tell you who they are then tell them you do not trust them or what they say if they can not be completely honest.

And please, begin to understand why these people will not honestly answer these questions. This should become more clear to you then.

Despite the head honcho blow back I'm getting on all this negative stuff, people with money somehow just seem to know the difference between truth and fiction, naysayers and those who seek to tell it like it is (ah, that's me!).

My hand has been forced. I have been asked to pursue legally for slander and defamation of character lawsuits against certain individuals. This is something I do not want to do, it's time consuming, messy, and a huge drain on mental energies for everyone.

We have already identified the real person involved regarding two of these people, and through a variety of resources which I will not comment on, we will eventually find everyone who is party to these vicious assaults. These people need to realize receiving an advance cease and desist is not a pre requisite to receiving a lawsuit and a court order / invitation to attend depositions under oath in Florida, and for those who 'just don't get it' allow me to explain...

Under oath means if the truth is not spoken they can be held in contempt of court with additional court imposed sanctions. Further it is through depositions the lawyers will learn more information regarding other conspirators.

I had really hoped to avoid all this.

But like I said, I am willing to carry this load for all my partners benefit and PROTECT THIS DEAL AT ALL COSTS.

Our deal

As you know from recent updates our seller got behind on his promised white paper and videos and collateral etc. However he is back on track and I'll expand more on this Friday, Part B of this update.

Did you ever play the game as a kid, where you sat around in a circle, perhaps a campfire like I did in the Boy Scouts, and you whispered a secret in the ear of the person on your right and they passed it on just as you told it to them but by the time it got back to you it was totally different?

I'm not going to play the 'he said, she said' game in these updates, but I'm man enough to stand up to any errors I may have made. I have always done this with you.

Here's what I'm talking about...

Monday morning Pacific time, the seller, Garry my partner, and I, had a lengthy 3-way phone conference.

We discussed many things all relative to this deal as I too - remember I'm a partner also - wanted to drill down as much as I could. Our seller was clear with Garry and I that his primary goal above everything else, is to preserve and protect the value of his companies. As a CEO that is his ONLY REAL MISSION. As it must be.

Because of this, and rightfully so, when he speaks with someone he is in fact going to be very careful with what he says.

He told us he will emphatically will not offer up any information prior to a suitable time, and will not be manipulated or tricked into doing so as others have tried.

During this conversation, and here's my 'man up' part, it was made clear to me for the first time ever, that the "Ol' Man" is not with the Central bank in South Korea, he is with a leading bank in South Korea, probably the largest, and it is through his efforts over all of this time he was able to bring the Central bank in South Korea and other Central banks in Asia, and yes even one in Dubai, into this deal.

So my prior statements, where I said the "Ol' Man" is with the Central bank in South Korea, are not correct. It seems some people would like to use that fact as proof that I'm lying and I'm some kind of a lowlife, when in a practical world it makes no difference if the Central bank has committed to any bank their commitment to provide funding for any banks loan endeavors.

And this is not a correction but rather a definitive reiteration of what I have always said, hence my campfire metaphor.

This goes back to all of those 2:00am & 3:00am phone calls between myself and my partner Garry. Garry is in fact the one between the two of us who has legal standing with the seller's company. As I've mentioned previously, Garry sits on the Board of Advisors for the seller's companies, and it is because of this the seller cannot easily or completely answer questions about my / "Mike G's" involvement.

All of this is why Garry and I set up a totally separate corporation for our involvement in this mega deal. My role only is and always has been to help facilitate loan funding to the seller's company, you know the ones being sold as an umbrella deal, and to provide updated communication to all of my loan partners.

Garry's job involves a lot more day to day detail stuff including sharing with me what the Board says during it's weekly meetings.

Remember it's the Board for this deal, comprised of Board members from the buyers companies.  Example, a buyer's company may have a dozen people on it's Board. however only a few of those people I am told have been appointed to sit on this deal's Board.

Here is why I am so carefully explaining all of this:

Again, during countless 2:00am & 3:00am meetings Garry informed me on several occasions the Board just authorized a bonus payment of xyz for the additional loan contribution of xyz.

These bonus payments were always astronomical so here's my point. On my own and your behalf I immediately committed to acquiring each one of these bonus payment offerings. Making us, you and me and all of our other partners including Garry, the number one stakeholder in the seller's companies.

Further, these tremendous bonus offerings were calculated and quite easily into and I admit unbelievable payback sums for loan pledges from you and my other partners. None of this was ever contrived. It was all very real and very timely and we took them all.

Next, just yesterday our seller had a very successful meeting with people from the bank in South Korea. I'm told it primarily had to do with things the new buyer #5, I call him the 'super wealthy' are bringing to the table.

Lastly, for now, there are lots of things in process. I've gone on enough today, I'll cover these things in Part B.

Remember, I will not answer any questions relative to this update or any update. Emails with a question that are professional and courteous are read by me and almost always the answer is included in the next or near next update.

A question I did respond to yesterday from a wonderful partner by the way, was curious to know how Elan Musk was able to close the purchase of Twitter in two weeks. I did reply to him and pointed out
1) Twitter is a public company
2) It takes more than two weeks of due diligence and accountants pouring over the math just to file with the SEC  your intentions to take over or purchase a public company
3) Musk did agree to purchase Twitter for $54 per share, and the Board has unanimously accepted this offer. However, as reported in the news article regarding same, the closing is expected some time in 2022.

So yes, it's true, buying/selling a public company is indeed a lot faster, but it certainly is not virtually instant as this gentleman thought.

Any disrespectful or discourteous email is not replied to at all, so please don't waste your time sending mean spirited messages.

If something dramatic or urgent happens between the schedule of Wednesday and Friday updates, I'll send out a special update.  Otherwise just let the people who are doing what they do, the varitable army of people who are involved, and let me do my job, and I promise you, I will.

I thank you for your understanding and I hope some of the above may help you ease any tensions you personally have or as a rebuttal to any negative comments or criticisms, etc. etc.

Please allow me to keep you up to date with what I CAN tell you as things develop, through these updates (again, meaning please no calls or emails about this update or this deal).
