FR Exclusive: Michael Schiavo To Become Multi-Millionaire Shortly
Various Inside Sources | 3-28-2005 | my favorite headache

Posted on 03/28/2005 8:59:44 PM PST by My Favorite Headache

As many on FR know I happen to work for a Florida newspaper and have scooped out some stories weeks in advance. Well info has come along that Michael Schiavo is in talks with believe it or not an agent to handle media matters relating to his selling the rights to the story that is currently raking in massive numbers for cable news...his wife Terri's starvation.

The story is coming together but remember where you heard it first. Michael is already having to field offers between 1-2 million dollars for TV and Film and 1-2 million for book rights.

There is quiet bidding going on behind the scenes....stay tuned...this story will indeed grow more vile than anyone could have thought.

I don't find it surprising in the least. And people will buy the book and watch the movie. Won't be the first time the "industry" has behaved in a despicable manner.

If you think that is sick, consider this: There are enough people out there that would actually want to "read the book" or "see the movie" that it makes publishers and mocie studios rub their hands with glee at the thought of all the money to come their way.

Michael may be sick for what he is doing, but you know who is even sicker? The American public, and the media that sells the crap to the American Public.

If you don't believe her family may well be angling for book and other story rights deals you're pretty delusional.

This mess all began when Michael refused their demand for 50% of the malpractice settlement and they've been wrestling for Terri's slowing dying body ever since.

Two years in, her own mother said in court filings that Michael should be allowed to date other women. Now his having 'moved on' with a life is being used to smear him and insinuate he's tried to murder her. They're depraved and grossly manipulative people. Terri's a pawn in the age old struggle over feelings of entitlement and cold hard case.

No question about it. You are 100% correct. The thing is..the Schindlers do not have an "agent" per-say. But it is pretty much a given that their story will be up for grabs as well.

She has not even left the Earth yet and the bidding is going on.

I supposed so and posted that about a week ago. Does not surprise me one bit. Hope Terri's parents get the same, it would be a battle again. Just like the war of the movies during the election. Moore's 9-11 lies; and the truth of "The Passion."

I would have read a story by the Schindlers, about their ordeal to save their daughter from the ghoul.

It still hurts --- to think of the Schindlers having to get "permission" to be with their little girl in her dying hours....

Are you really just staring this process or did you think you could just repeat some half facts and all of the people on these threads would just swallow.
The normal rational mind would understand that the Schindlers would expect him to move on as they would keep on taking care of their daughter.
A rational mind would not believe that they agreed for him to shack up and pursue the death of their daughter to the ends of the earth.

Only if used in the proper context - which means I was speaking of the opinions of others, rather than my own opinion. I think that was pretty clear.

I don't think I've ever actually stated what my opinion of Michael Shiavo is, actually.

"not that anyone on FR would actually post it if they knew"

Given that not knowing anything seems to be a fine reason for you to post, I'm sure that, in the ever-so-miniscule chance that you ever actually know anything, you would post that as well. Don't you ever get tired of your ghoulish fishing expeditions on this subject? What kind of "person" gets off on baiting others regarding the sad death of an innocent woman? It must really suck to be you, Chad baby.

The 'story' will be one brick in the wall of euthanasia Soros wants encircling America for his 'Death In America' project. The agenda is not secret and the blatant fabrications in the leftist societal engineering movie will be obvious, at least to those who've done some homework.

Agreed. Sad to Say. I ain't going to be buying his book or watching his movie. I'd like to watch Michael Moore's "Bowling for Columbine" to debunk it, but I can't bring myself to put a dime in his pocket so he can built an improvement on his mansion in the "ghetto" of Torch Lake(On Lake Michigan).....

That was the biggest LOAD OF CRAP I have read about in a LONG TIME.

Who do you THINK PROVIDED FOR TERRI and BACKED UP MICHAEL for the THREE YEARS before he got his WINDFALL?

Were you THINKING THAT MICHAEL paid for all the wondrous THERAPY TERRI WAS GETTING THEN?

SOrry dear.....MR and MRS SCHINDLER WERE PAYING FOR ALL OF IT, and WHAT IS MORE, SHE WAS IMPROVING.....AND MICHAEL WAS ALL LOVE AND ROSES, TOOK HER TO MALLS, TOOK PHOTOS OF HER FOR THE JURY ETC., HAD HER HAIR DONE, HAD HER IN REHABILITATION AND SHE WAS LOOKING GOOD! And no wonder. She had a LIFE! She got to feel the sunshine on her face, she got to go places, she was NOT HIDDEN away as he did after getting the money, when he DECIDED she could have only visitors he approved, no flowers or gifts, NO OUTINGS, just a cold room so that her SPIRIT WOULD BE CRUSHED (speed up death, donchaknow!)

SO GOOD that he PROMISED the JURY that as he got the money, HE PROMISED, in COURT TESTIMONY, that he would use all of the money to take care of TERRI for the REST of her LONG LIFE, as projected at the time of the TRIAL. Oh yeah...HE DID.

And HE TOLD the SCHINDLER'S, that even as they used their savings to care for Terri's bills and to house Michael (yes, they believed in him that much), that in return, Michael WOULD USE THE BIG MONEY HE EXPECTED AND GOT, TO BUY A HOUSE BIG ENOUGH FOR ALL OF THEM, WHERE TERRI COULD RECEIVE THE BEST REHAB RIGHT THERE!

AND WHAT DID MICHAEL DO?

FOUR DAYS AFTER RECEIVING THE MONEY HE PUT A DNR ORDER on Terri's CHART and WITHIN SIX MONTHS HAD FOUND A LAWYER TO HELP HIM KILL HER!

HE HATES THE SCHINDLERS BECAUSE THEY MESSED UP HIS PLAN.

HE WANTED TERRI DEAD AND DEAD FAST.....AFTER ALL...AN ATTORNEY CAN USE UP A LOT OF MONEY FAST.....AND FELOS DID JUST THAT!

On larry king Michael spoke of how MAD he was at the shindlers for trying to save their dtrs life.

What he did NOT TELL THEM OR THE JURY...was this Terri wish thing to not have a feeding tube to help her eat.

Oh no....HE ONLY REMEMBERED THAT ONE WHEN IT WAS EXPLAINED TO HIM THAT THAT WAS THE ONLY WAY TO GET RID OF HER.

I received yet another plea for a political contribution...this time from the Na. Republican Congressional Committee (Rep. Tom Reynolds, chairman). We get one of these appeals -- either from the NRCC, the NRSC, or the RNC -- about every day. I drafted the following letter, which I'm sending via the response envelope to every appeal for money we receive --

Rep. Reynolds:

We knew our courts were in sad shape, being run by judges that render decisions in an arbitrary and capricious manner, but until the case of Terri Schiavo, I don’t think any of us knew how bad a shape the courts were in.

While Congress passed a bill, signed by the President, to grant Terri’s parents the ability to have her case reviewed “de novo” in federal court, federal judges at every level chose to ignore the will of Congress, and refused to give Terri’s case a fresh look. This has perpetrated a gross injustice that potentially affects us all.

Renegade courts have now reached a stage of crisis. My wife and I voted for George W. Bush in 2000 primarily for the purpose of turning the federal courts around. We supported Republican candidates in 2002 for the same reason. And we worked for, and financially supported Pres. Bush’s re-election in 2004, along with other congressional Republican candidates, again, for the same reason. Over the course of four years nothing has been done to change the direction of the federal courts. The Democrats in the Senate continue to obstruct the President’s nominees through an unconstitutional filibuster, while Republicans are trying to find enough of a backbone among their 55 members to challenge that obstruction.

In 2004, my wife and I contributed a combined $1,600 to Bush-Cheney ’04, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee, the RNC, the John Thune for Senate campaign, the Bill Jones for Senate campaign, and the Swift Boat Vets for Truth, all with the ultimate goal of changing our federal courts (among other secondary issues).

For over 25 years, we’ve heard Republican officials talk about promoting the pro-life position. Frankly, Congressman, I’m tired of the lip-service. I’m not contributing another dime to Republicans until the GOP figures out a way to break the Democrats’ obstruction in the Senate and starts putting judges on the federal courts that respect the letter of law, rather than make things up as they go. We're the majority; we should start acting like it. It’s way past time for you people to deliver. When that obstruction is broken, you may then send me an appeal for money.

You may communicate this to your Senate counterpart.

Sincerely,

/signed/

AND WHAT DID MICHAEL DO?

FOUR DAYS AFTER RECEIVING THE MONEY HE PUT A DNR ORDER on Terri's CHART and WITHIN SIX MONTHS HAD FOUND A LAWYER TO HELP HIM KILL HER!

August 1992

Terri Schiavo is awarded $250,000 in an out-of-court medical malpractice settlement with one of her physicians.

November 1992

The jury in the medical malpractice trial against another of Terri’s physicians awards more than one million dollars. In the end, after attorneys’ fees and other expenses, Michael Schiavo received about $300,000 and about $750,000 was put in a trust fund specifically for Terri Schiavo’s medical care.

May 1998

Michael Schiavo petitions the court to authorize the removal of Terri Schiavo’s PEG tube; the Schindlers oppose, saying that Terri would want to remain alive. The court appoints Richard Pearse, Esq., to serve as the second guardian ad litem for Terri Schiavo.

I assume when you said "4 days", you actually meant "6 years", yes?

Thankfully, I think our majority margin will keep getting bigger. Traditionalism is making a comeback, and with it will come a renewed love of country. I have many younger people in my family, and they all feel it. People like us just have to keep preaching the U.S. gospel.
