Strange coincidence..... I am sure your questions would not be the ones they expected.
Internet debate made the difference to the court!
In the eyes of the law, public figures are usually politicians or celebrities, who have limited rights to claim that they've been libeled or defamed, thanks to a 1964 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Among other things, Cole said plaintiff Eliza Thomas had become a public figure because there had been "substantial public debate" regarding her and her husband on the internet.
In the wake of the Terri Schiavo debate, which also took place in Florida, Thomas' case is controversial enough.
But there's a twist: The state attorney general's office is investigating whether Thomas had something to do with her husband's injuries, raising the prospect of criminal charges. Thomas claims her husband was injured when he tripped over a dog in the kitchen.
"It's sort of judicial recognition of the importance of internet news," Gabel said. "It shows the power of individuals on the internet."
Judges often will look at media coverage to see if someone fits the criteria to be a public figure. But in the Thomas case, there hadn't been any traditional media coverage; only internet denizens had been involved.
Something we wish for....
I still wonder if one of Michael Schiavo's girlfriends had a key to the apartment, and if she or some male friend of hers confronted Terri that night.
That could explain why Terri did not seem afraid of Michael in the early pictures of them together after the "event."
These crooked judges and lawyers won't be able to hide any longer.
Here are some links to update any not familiar with the situation.
Does anyone have any information- web site links- connecting Soros with the Hospice Foundation of America?
need dirt on Hospice Foundation of America- if there is any...
Prayers for Haleigh and all concerned.
"His mom was smart to take that hair sample.."
What is the hair sample for?
He had been hospitalized in the proceeding months with undignosed stomach and health problems. His wife may have been poisoning him. His mother cut a hair sample, in the fall if I remember correctly and just sent it off to be tested.
Thanks for the info.!
I hope the truth comes out.
There are some pro-life hospices, but the wisdom is to know the difference.
Here's a link that I have about hospices (the bad ones):
Don't have anything about George Soros and a hospice per se, but this is closely related:
In 1994, emigree billionaire Geroge Soros wrote a check for $15 million to finance the Project on Death in America (PDIA). Its goal was to transform the culture of death in the United States. By 2003 when the PDIA ended its grant making and closed the program, it had distributed $45 million to organization and individuals working on end-of-life issues. Altho, the project is closed the work goes on. Is a large part of that work to make doctor-assisted suicide legal? It would seem so.
On the May 18th Fox News OReilly show, investigative reporter and best selling author Richard Poe gave an expose on Soros. Poe claims Soros is a maniacal figure who fancies himself as a New Age Messiah and that his philanthropy funds abortion, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, gay marriage, and globalization. He is out to destroy America as we know it, says Poe. In a Newmax cover story, Poe writes of the dark purpose behind Soros $200-million Project on Death program. Soros, who authored The Bubble of American Supremacy, is bankrolling the Democratic partys attempt to unseat President Bush. Militantly anti-religious, Soroswrites that "devout believers of any sort are idiots who shouldn't hold public office."
Excerpt from: http://www.missionsun.net/tcajune2004.htm
In 1995, the newsletter of a group called Choice in Dying listed seven organizations in a Guide to Right-to-Die Organizations. At least four of them (Compassion in Dying, Death with Dignity Education Center, the Oregon Death with Dignity Legal Defense and Education Center, and Choice in Dying itself) have attracted funding from large foundations.
One such foundation is George Soross Open Society Institute (OSI). The OSI, through its Project on Death in America, gives millions of dollars for enhancing end-of-life care and none of the Projects money is used for assisted suicide purposes. But the OSI provides grants for assisted suicide advocacy through OSIs Presidents Fund in its U.S. Programs office.
P.S. the hospice link wasn't quite what I thought it was. I haven't looked at it in a long time.
On Thursday, Nov. 10, the father of North Country Gazette publisher June Maxam suffered a massive stroke. He is a patient at Eden Park Nursing Home in Glens Falls. He has not been hospitalized. The nursing home claims he cannot swallow and that they are "maintaining his dignity". The current plan is to place him in a hospice, withhold all nutrition and hydration and wait for him to die.
June Maxam has been key to our information regarding Terri for ages, has kept at it when others drifted away. She is the one publishing at the Empire Journal and the North Country Gazette and is a frequent and best source for breaking news about the Terri atrocity. Now, she is faced with her own horror.
Please check out the link in the article, too. It is her own father they want to dehydrate!
I got a message from her yesterday but had not looked to see if anything was online about it this a.m. Still trying to wake up. I've sent it out to all my contacts and will see what we can find out online. We need to do what we can to help!!
Just tell me what to do and I'll do it. Who can I call, who can I contact? Do you have phone numbers? Let's get to work. I am praying as we speak. A powerful scripture to address this situation is Psalm 71.
Just last week, the St. Pete Times quoted a freeper regarding FR's real time hurricane threads.
Thanks Jim Robinson for your gravitas and your leadership.
June Maxam has my prayers and support. FV
I can't be of much help right now due to another project but what about the New York freepers? They may have more info on who's who up there.
Your 153. We are being heard. It is not an overnight process though. We will be here until there is a federal ban on starving and dehydrating Americans period unless they sign a directive and UNLESS that directive is revocable! Congress' toll free number is on my home page. www.conservative-spirit.org.
FV SAYS: Gist of the article: A reader of World Net Daily tore up their Living Will after following World Net Daily's ongoing coverage of forced exits. LINK IS POSTED ABOVE.
FV, I am still here and support a ban on starvation and dehydration as a way to die. It is so wrong and yet our world has slowly become to accept it as ok. Thing is when someone who is really dying like my grandfather did it is different to withhold food from them than it is to someone who is not dying like Terri was and so many other's. My grandfather slipping into unconsciousness on a Sunday night after eating that day and died on a Wed. night. We didn't deny him moisture like they did to Terri. We all took turns getting a wet rag and placing it in his mouth. He didn't eat and no fooding tube was placed as we knew he only had hours and he wasn't dying of dehydration or starvation, he died of cancer. But to take that away from someone who just has an injury, is old, or unable to speak for whatever reason is criminal and wrong!
Ping to Terri November Dailies. Written Directives, etc.
George Soros is tied to Tallahassee lawmakers and all the Florida Right to Die groups.
To get more info on this topic, try googling George Soros and George Felos, former Fla Right to Die Director and also a former Hospice Director (Hospice Woodside).
Then there's ERGO which is the new name for Hemlock Society. They have a web site but I can't recall what the ERGO stands for. It's the hemlockers though.
Soros has a web page dedicated to forced exits. I posted about it some time ago...
Finally, try www.judgegeorgegreer.com (they may have something - lotsa links).
State of Florida is a partner in the culture of death. Look at Fla first. FV
This is just awful! I want the world to wake up and know that this is going on, and has been going on for some time. I am not trying to say that all nursing homes and caretakers are bad, but the odds of finding good and honest ones are getting harder and harder. I will completely support June Maxam in her fight against this facility and its administators.
Please ping me to any response of how we should go about taking action. I want this kind of stuff exposed! It needs to be rooted out of our society!
Excerpt from WND: "I believe all parties would agree that Mr. Chambers is incapacitated at this time," Johnson wrote. "However, the Petitioner is of the opinion that if the ATIVAN, BENADRYL, MORPHINE were withdrawn that Mr. Chambers would again be able to make his own medical decisions."
ATIVAN is often prescribed as an anti-anxiety type medication and has a slowing down effect, BENADRYL can make one very sleepy and MORPHINE is for severe pain such as the kind of pain experienced by terminally ill patients.
JIMMY CHAMBERS WASN'T TERMINALLY ILL, he said he wanted to live, they had to take his ability to communicate from him so they could bump him off for Mrs. Chambers.
The more secular a society we become, the more shenanigans are going to be pulled on innocent people.
Welcome to Free Republic. God Bless Terri and your dear father. They will not have died in vain.
have you been to www.judgegeorgegreer.com lately? Or google under Jonathan Alpert, an attorney who represented fired hospice employees. He used to have gobs of material about bad hospices. I don't know if he has anything on line now.
Lots of FReepers quoted in the article, alright. There's a poll there, too. You can probably guess which one I voted for.
This is an assault on June's dad and also on June's wall to wall coverage of SCHIAVO-GATE.
I'll be back later.
GOP LURKERS, Please INDICT JUDGE GEORGE GREER for high crimes and misdemeanors. FV and a few thousand of my closest friends are going independent, going green or sitting home if justice is not served. INDICT GEORGE GREER because RNC LURKERS, if you didn't like what happened this past Tuesday, CAMPAIGN 2006 will be much worse.
Republican Judges killed Terri Schiavo after violating her rights. Republican state members voted against Terri's life. Everybody knows that.
Get with your base or prepare to lose big in 2006.
Ping to 168.
tag line re-do.
I didn't realize that www.judgegeorgegreer.com was updated.
I have read quite a bit of it in the past.
I just called the Eden Park Health nursing home for Gerard Maxam. It might be good to ping the phone #. It is 518-793-5163.
I just said don't allow Gerard Maxam to be dehydrated and starved. Maybe some of you are better talkers than I, but it's important to stand up and be counted.
Links to NY State agencies
NY business search (not as comprehensive as Florida's site fwiw)
I've got to be away from the pc so maybe someone can see if there is any agency which might be able to move based on the nursing home "Not" seeking treatment for Mr. Maxam for the stroke. How did they even know he had a stroke if they didn't seek treatment? Some details confusing me.
How in the world did they get his proxy changed?
Can someone email the NCG article to Hannity? Beck, Savage?
Eden Park is owned by a Scott Hoffman...there are more Eden Parks...fyi to self.
From the article "Your right to not remain Silent"--> "Our role as attorneys is to help explain so people understand they have options," McCarthy said.
What a joke. Terri was forced to remain silent. She was not allowed to be seen or heard. McCarthy says people need to understand you have options. Well, Michael Schiavo and Greer saw to it that Terri had only one option - that option was death. I'm so sick of these ghouls.
Thanks for the information on June's father, 8mmMauser. I'm so sorry to hear of her father's stroke. I read June's letter to the nursing home and was shocked to learn what they are doing. Are they nuts or what?
June has my prayers and support. I've always admired what she did for Terri. If only we had people like June in the MSM, this country wouldn't be in the shape it's in.
I would like to encourage all of our friends to read the following stories. June Maxam, editor of North County Gazette, and co-publisher of The Empire Journal is experiencing tragedy involving her father Gerald Maxam. In fact, once again it is involving the "culture of death" movement. June has been very involved in the fight for Terri and now is in need of our help, as her father faces the same demise.
Please take the time to read the following stories and act accordingly to help save her father. Remember, this could be your family member, or loved one!
In Christ, Mary Gesinski, Editor
Olive Branch Press, Inc.
Is anyone in contact with Sean Hannity or Newsmax.com? I don't know if it's worth the trouble to contact Joe Scarborough. He didn't seem to be too involved re: Terri. Dr. Keyes has been contacted about June Maxam's father. Other people are trying to help June.
AS IT TURNS OUT, THE NURSING HOME WHERE JUNE'S DAD is at, THEY wrote a power of attorney for themselves even though June is clearly his caregiver! They are breaking the law up there at the Eden Nursing Home. There is ALSO A NEW YORK GREER-TYPE JUDGE who signed off on the dehydration order.
The nursing home lied and said that her dad couldn't swallow. That's false.
If anyone wants to help, please think of a way to help. A call to action has gone out via email and needs to go out here, because June's dad is being denied nutrition and water RIGHT NOW.
Please take the time to pray for her dad and maybe we can think of phone numbers and contact info for Monday. HOW ABOUT THE U.S. DOJ?
Apparently, Jacksonville doesn't have a State Attorney like Pinellas Cty's Bernie McCabe who was part of the plan to exit Terri out. Jax's state attorney is at least entertaining the idea that the spouse is up to no good. In Pinellas County, they were hands off Michael Schiavo - he must have had the goods on the lot of them. It had to be blackmail for them to help a piece of work like HINO.
How about New York's State's Atty or Elderly Affairs in New York? We need help from New York freepers.
This is the DEATH CARE SYSTEM on parade. They used to treat stroke patients, not torture them!
Terri had a right to appear in court but Judge Greer wouldn't allow it and that was one reason her wheelchair remained broken and J. Greer NEVER MADE MICHAEL SCHIAVO OR JODI CENTONZE be deposed last year. They treated Terri like a thing. Under the ADA, Terri had the right to access to the courthouse. Judge Greer violated her rights under the ADA which is just the tip of the iceberg. INDICT JUDGE GREER, what more can I say? He's a criminal on the bench.
If it is your intent to cause my father to die in the same cruel, inhumane manner as Terri Schiavo, I can assure you it too will receive nationwide coverage with the nation's spotlight on Eden Park, Glens Falls Hospital and Warren County Court Judge John Hall with whom you acted in concert, Warren County's answer to Judge George Greer..
My friend has Hannity in her cell. I'll get in touch with her.
