Apparantly Greer issued a restraining order earlier preventing the DCF from taking Terri Schiavo...

snip

A state judge issued an emergency order Wednesday to keep the Department of Children & Families from taking any action that would reconnect Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube. George Felos, the attorney for Michael Schiavo, asked Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer to issue the order Wednesday while the judge considers a request from DCF and Gov. Bush to take custody of Terri Schiavo.

This may explain the delay.

He can't stop an emergency intervention.

Gov. Bush doesn't need Greer's permission, per the law.

A judge cannot enjoin the executive from enforcing the law, so long as the law is on the books.

Greer loses this one.

This was my thinking as well...that perhaps Bush's council doesn't think he can legally take custody without a court order...that has been denied. This is looking more bleak by the minute.

It's my understanding that the state does not need Greer's permission and they have authority over him. This is judicial tyranny.

He can't. IMHO, he has overstepped his bounds and authority. I say arrest Greer for obstruction.

That man certainly is working hard to kill his wife. Guess when he finally remembered what she had said 8 years ago he decided it should be his priority in life (when he wasn't commiting adultery and having children). With the Dems everything is "for the children" I guess with him all the hateful things he does are "for Terri". Too bad there's no tube we can disconnect from him.

What is really wierd about this whole thing is Greer's intense motivation to torture and murder this woman, while there is so much doubt about her true condition, and the motivations of her 'husband' who has an intense, buring desire to see her dead.

These people are beond rational behavior, but I guess premeditated murder is not really considered rational behavior.

It is clear that Greer really, really, really wants Terri Schiavo dead. It seems to have become a personal crusade for him to kill this woman. Its like, he has issued the order that she has to die, and by God no one is going to stop him. The black robe of the judiciary is in danger of becoming a symbol of shame and evil.

Jeb Bush doesn't make the call here; he doesn't take custody, he doesn't make the decision.

This is the business of the DCF.

The 23rd Psalm --- Translated to Terri's Present Reality !!!

The Lord is Terri's Shepherd --- That's Relationship !!!
She shall not want --- That's Supply !!!
He maketh her to lie down in green pastures --- That's Rest !!!
He leadeth her beside the still waters --- That's Refreshment !!!
He restoreth her soul --- That's Healing !!!
He leadeth her in the paths of righteousness --- That's Guidance !!!
For His name sake --- That's Purpose !!!
Yea, though Terri walks through the valley of the shadow of death --- That's Testing !!!
She will fear no evil --- That's Protection !!!
For Thou art with her --- That's Faithfulness !!!
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort her --- That's Discipline !!!
Thou preparest a table before Terri in the presence of her enemies--- That's Hope !!!
Thou annointest her head with oil --- That's Consecration !!!
Her cup runneth over --- That's Abundance !!!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow Terri all the days of her life --- That's Blessing !!!
And she will dwell in the house of the Lord --- That's Security!!!
Forever --- That's Eternity !!!
Congressional Subpoena & President Signs Schiavo Bill --- That's Expectation !!!
Gov. Jeb Bush takes Terri into protective custody --- That's Deliverance !!!

Face it ---- The Lord is crazy about Terri !!!
Otherwise --- Why else would He continuously deliver her from
the evil hands of her attempted murderers ???

It's about a Judge's ego. Most of them get like that. He won't give in because to do so would be to relinquish his personal power.

Go for it Governor Bush! Use EXECUTIVE ORDER at least to STABILIZE her with an I-V

(there AREN'T even any judicial orders against THAT!)

Then ALSO give her 60 days of swallowing therapy. Terri would be swallowing out of a baby bottle right away, just like she used to do for Carla Iyers

I have. I know the judge is conflicted. Normally a competent and fair-minded jurist would recuse himself from a case where there is such a conflict. But he has not. This leads me to believe that the death of Terri Schiavo has become a personal crusade for him.

As long as we have judges willing to murder the infirm, social security will be solvent forever.
I guess this is the Dems plan for Medicaid/Medicare, as well, and the true reason they demand the judiciary in their likeness via endless filibusters in the Senate.

What blows my mind is that for everything that we do, want, wish, or whatever is that the first rule of thumb is to GET IT IN WRITING. If it isn't in writing it's all heresay. Therefore if Michael Schiavo's statements that Terri's wish would have been not to live as she is, and it was never put into writing in a living will, then his statements are purely HERESAY. And as we all know HERESAY never holds up in court. I absolutely cannot for the life of me see why there is any doubts. WTF

Something is really, really wrong with Judge Greer. He has blocked Terri from having the proper tests for years, and at every opportunity rules against her. I have never seen anything like this, and I have to ask does anybody have faith in the American judicial system after seeing how Greer operates?

Greer cannot enjoin enforcement of a valid law on the books.

The statute in question gives the executive branch explicit authority to take Terri and secure her, even requires the police to transport her.

Heh. Chaucer said that about the roaming Friars who would beg, borrow, steal, and guilt trip the people out of their money "for the church". He was a very entertaining writer, as you might imagine.

People, NEVER EVER Forget after this is over that the jackass party is trying to keep the Senate, OUR Senate from appointing judges who would hopefully stop this kind of thing from happening.

Work hard now to make the senate stick to constitutional authority to confirm these judges. If we fail in that and the senate does not change the filibustering "rules", then we may end up with a bloody internal conflict on our hands.

This is what happens when you go on national TV and tell your enemy what you're planning to do. They should have just kept their mouths shut and said nothing to nobody and when the timing was right - gone in and taken her.

But .. once she was in state custody - Greer would just have her removed and have the tube removed again. There is no outcome for them but for her to die. It's sick! In fact, they are so determined - I believe they will be willing to castrate themselves to accomplish it.

I've had this sick feeling in my gut all day over this. Having been married to a brutal person - I shudder to think what would have happened to me in the same circumstances.
