I am going to set the record STRAIGHT!

just got this comment:

The fact that there is no medical record of bulima is why there's so much money up for grabs. The original malpractice suit, which succeeded, claimed that her doctor should have realized there was an eating disorder given all of the indications he had.

Here are the facts:

  • I get my information from those that are DIRECTLY in contact with Terri's family. I trust this source. If you don't, FINE- but when you want to challenge the facts I give- then I suggest you expose YOUR source. (like leave a link to where you are reading or getting your info- see below you will see a link to MY SOURCE! If you are ninny enough to believe what you read in the MSM, do so at your own peril.)
  • I get my information from people who are embedded in this case and have been for YEARS.
  • I get my information from credible sources that have INSIDE information. They are the people that have been fighting this atrocity and have taken meticulous notes on their experience of encountering the cover-up and corruption techniques for YEARS!
  • I get me information from READING the actual court transcripts.
  • I get my information from sources that are IN THE BUSINESS of knowing the laws and the correct steps to be taken in order to address these violations with the appropriate people.
  • I get my information from sources that need to be protected.
I will, THIS week, be providing information that my sources have gained by filing Freedom of Information acts and much much more. The information is out there. The media is either ignoring it- or just doesn't understand all the issues because they have not invested the time and efforts into gathering all the information. I honestly believe that SOME of the media sources just are not aware of the web of lies. When you look at ONE piece of information it looks minor; noteworthy, but minor. When you put all the pieces together and look at the BIG picture, you can finally see what is going on here. If the media does not KNOW or realize the scope of the cover-up and corruption they will NOT invest the time and efforts needed to find all the info, and then expose it.

This is EXACTLY what the next week will be dedicated to achieving!

Please pay attention this week. You will be alarmed, to say the least.

Just wanted to be sure to set the record STRAIGHT!

Media repeats misrepresentations in Terri Schiavo case.

On February 24, 2005, Associated Press released a report penned by Vickie Chachere which cited an eating disorder as the cause of Terri Schiavo’s mysterious collapse and ensuing brain injury on February 25, 1990.

Contrary to the account of writer Chachere, there was never a determination by any court nor the Florida Department of Health that Terri Schiavo ever suffered from any eating disorder, bulimia, anorexia or compulsive behavior that would lead to a heart failure at the age of 26.

Indeed, Florida ’s Department of Health had completely and absolutely cleared Terri’s general practitioner of any negligence or wrong-doing in her case. This was after the physician had been accused by Terri’s husband of ignoring evidence of an eating disorder.

Additionally, at the time of her mysterious medical episode, Terri Schiavo stood 5’3” and weighed somewhere between 115 and 118 pounds – a slim, but normal stature and weight.

Associated Press writer, Vickie Chachere cites not ONE medical document that would affirm her careless contention that Terri Schiavo was an irresponsible dieter or a compulsive victim of an eating disorder. The Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation asks Ms. Chachere to readily produce the facts upon which she penned such assertions.


  • The eating disorder claim is such a joke. The stomach has acid that could eat thru a razor blade. Anyone out there had a virus or hangover lately when your threw your gut's up? You know that awful sore throat that you get? Well, if she had been purging, her throat would have been raw and the doctors would have noted it. The initial evaluation would have something. Now maybe the throat was not noted since they had to intubate, but the chemical signs would have been there and there would have been some type of imbalance. After what I have read in the last week or so, I have no doubt in my mind that this was attempted murder by the husband, followed by a coverup and scandal that we are still waiting to find how far up it goes. Make no mistake that the culture of death (euthanasia groups) is behind getting this woman legally murdered so the door will be open to assisted suicide. That is a road we do not want to go down, not to mention that indications are that Terri Shiavo very much wants to live.

  • Gary Fox was the lawyer who got them their malpractice settlement:,2933,148756,00.html

    Why do you think the jury awarded them $8million? And that the jury "ound Terri to be 70 percent responsible for her own condition because she induced herself to vomit"

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:00 PM  

  • Ever heard of a sympathy vote? Don't you think they used the emotion of her husband as well as her condition to sway the jury? Don't you think an award of that amount would be pathetic in a real mal practice case? Finally, have you read the transcripts of the trial and reviewed the medical evidence? If not, you can kindly go and read and then come back when you are armed with some facts.

  • Want to list a blog to discuss the forbidden topic.

    By Blogger jlfintx, at 10:03 PM  

  • jlfintx, you're a riot. You make a post full of presumptions ("don't you think they really did it for this reason, etc etc"), then you say it's *others* that should go off and read the transcripts and medical records. Why should we, if you already know the "real" reason the jury voted the way it did...not the official reason. LOL.

    Remember, you're the one who said "after what I've read in the last week or so....". Do *not* try to pretend that you've read the court transcripts.

    Thank you for so eloquently putting your foot in your mouth. I, for one can attest ot the fact that jlfintx HAS INDEED been reading the court transcripts. And if you bother to check in this week, you will be able to too!


    Awwww= look who has egg on their face!!!

  • Sherri,

    I won't stoop to the level of ridiculing you. This is your blog and you'd just delete it anyway. Although it's quite ironic that you describe your page as: " Tired of Listening and not sounding off? Tired of waiting on hold to get your voice heard? " And yet you RIDICULE those who oppose your views.


    You just will not find that in your transcripts.

    Also, jlfintx, please provide me with the docket numbers of the court proceedings in your possession. Thanks.

    Sounding off in return is part of the game. I am not going to delete your comments as long as you do not use foul language and are not RUTHLESSLY CRUEL to Terri's family. No namecalling either. You have done well in posing an opposing view- the only thing I take issue with is your accusation that jlfintx would be lying- and the only reason I entered the fray on that is because I know he is NOT lying.

    I will provide copies of the actual transcripts for you this week. I have them. In fact, I have over 400 files and documents. I understand that the saturation of this topic is vast at this point and many "theories" are out there etc. If you read carefully, you will see where I admit that I have FAILED to organize all this info and post on it effectively.

    I have been running on little sleep due to reading all the material, and I did not compile it. These doc's were gathered over a span of YEARS. I truly understand that you want proof- you will get it. You want to attack my credability- have at it. You want to say you find it hard that jlfintx is being honest about reading the transcrpits- go ahead. All I can say is that YOU attacked people's credability and you will be proven wrong- I just hope that you will at least acknowledge that it was wrong to do that to jlfintx. I gave him the transcripts. I know he read them. AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TOO. And just for FYI-- you may want to be more clear on which "doctor" you are speaking of. DOH of Florida CLEARED one of the Doctors- FULL FLEDGE CLEARED HIM! In fact- He handed over HIS documents to the DOH in order for them to investigate someone ELSE! Then, surprise, surprise- Terri's file has been destroyed or disappeared! SHOCKA!

    Just stay tuned, and understand that it is in the HONEST pursuit of honesty, truth, and accuracy that I am not just throwing things up at random.

    Please also understand that I am in the process of learning the technical abilities that I need to know in order to provide them for you in a better way than just copy and paste-- I want you to see the actual document. SO if you want to ridicule me- then do it on the basis of actually finding some time to sleep and on the basis that I am technically challenged.

    I am certainly and admittedly technically challenged.

    I am certainly giving you the benefit of the doubt that it truly is the TRUTH you seek and not rumor and inuendo- so please just be patient. The 3 week stay for Terri has allowed me the chance to do this, and do it RIGHT!

    The reason I have NOT posted what I have yet- is because I only got these doc's within the last few days. 400 doc's is A LOT OF READING! Before I haphazardly start posting stuff- I am organizing them in a way that will be easy to follow and lay out the case against the MSM myths.

    Please be patient, as I am not interested in just throwing doc's out without showing their relevance. THIS IS JUST TOO MUCH TO RETAIN, ORGANIZE, and POST ON WIHTIN 2 DAYS!

    DISCAIMER: Sherri is very tired and has no idea if I have made myself clear in the above comment. If not- laugh at my incoherntness, and hope I get some much needed sleep tonight!

  • To anonymous:

    Prepare to either admit you were wrong, or slither away when the proof of a history of abuse-and most likely attempted murder, along with a cover up and smear campaign is submitted for the world to see. I don't feel the need to last out at you since you speak out of ignorance, but the truth does indeed hurt.

    By Blogger jlfintx, at 4:54 PM  

  • LOL the fact that you can't provide a single docket number speaks volumes. Oh wait, let me just don't feel like providing one, right?

    This little echo chamber (population ~ 5) is tiresome. Enjoy your campaign.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:21 PM  

  • I guess anonymous is too schtupid to read that I told him within the next week those facts and documents would be coming out. Reminds me of a little yipping dog that has nothing to do put nip at your heels. Again, stay tuned as this week you can eat some good old crow meat, you fricken imbecile.


    By Blogger jlfintx, at 7:36 PM  

  • LOL!!!

    Dang jlfintx-- remind me to NEVER doubt you and your convictions!!!


    You win the Brass set of the YEAR!!

    I LOVE YOU!! ( I say that with the UTMOST respect to your lovely wife!)

  • Sherri,

    Please make a photo shoot of that post ICP and phone number as that poster that acted like it was me has broken federal and state laws. I have called the person that was listed on the number and have a good idea who might have been behind this.

    Call the police and tell them about this.


    By Blogger jlfintx, at 10:11 PM  

  • I have already copied it, notified blogger and my local police, they are on the way to see what I have and I printed it out also

    Blogger is already aware of the previous probs with this particular commenter, so they will be sure to help the proper authorities

    I also have two trackers so I am sure they will be able to trace them


    By Blogger Straight Up with Sherri, at 10:39 PM  

  • by the way sherri, i made a copy here as well, if you did not get it before it was taken down. i am going to contact the person on that number again and see if they want to press charges as well. i am thinking about all the laws broken and know there is fraud, privacy violations, maybe inciting violence, etc., i will find out further tomorrow and this individual is in a world of hurt-talk to you tomorrow.

  • Florida Supreme Court splits 4-3 on surprise last-minute filing in Terri Schiavo Case


    with mirrors at:


    While many parties have become involved in the Terri Schiavo case, there has been much activity under the radar, not reported by the mainstream press.

    LAKELAND, FL (PRWEB) Friday, 25 February 2005 - Terri Schiavo supporters have been bolstered by a surprise, last-minute filing from an unexpected source. Lakeland, Florida resident, Gordon Watts, who filed a petition for writ of Habeas Corpus with Florida’s high court on behalf of Schiavo in late November of 2003, shortly after Schiavo’s feeding tube was removed and re-inserted, has struggled against powerful interests who have attempted to discredit and dismiss his involvement in this high-profile case. Watts also has experience in the U.S. Supreme Court, which is expected to hear his racial profiling case today, and can be found at the court’s official website: regarding a situation in which he was asked to leave an establishment based allegedly on his minority ethnic background.

    In spite of much opposition and ridicule from mainstream media and other parties, however, Watts’ case has remained alive in Florida’s Supreme Court for over a year until this past Wednesday.

    Watts, who learned of the Schiavo case in 2003 from news reports, immediately moved to file as “next friend” to challenge Schiavo’s alleged illegal detention in hospices, which, according to State Law, are only allowed to admit terminal patients, which are expected to die within six or fewer months. Watts’ filings bear many similarities to filings made by the immediate family, but have additional elements, such as the direct challenge to the placement of Schiavo in a hospice facility and the use of the writ of habeas corpus. Watts has said that the immediate family would be more appropriate to file, but seeing no one else make these legal arguments, petitioned the court, noting that he need not be “closest friend” to satisfy legal Due Process requirements for the handicapped woman, who has been denied legal representation for much of her ordeal.

    Mr. Watts also took issue with the fact that court orders only spoke to the feeding tube, but that parties removed both the feeding tube and also denied natural food, the latter a felony under chapter 825 state laws.

    Due to the recent developments, many parties have asked Watts to request that the high court issue a stay on the probate court proceedings while the Supreme Court justices have a chance to review his petitions on an expedited basis. This past Tuesday, Watts requested the court review his legal arguments, and late Thursday, it was learned that the court had quickly moved the previous day to issue a decision. Justices voted 4-3 to uphold a previous tentative decision to dismiss the filing based on technical errors.

    Voting to dismiss, without a written opinion, were Justices Kenneth Bell, Raoul Cantero, Peggy Quince, and Charles Wells. Voting to allow Watts to continue to file on behalf of Schiavo were Justices Harry Lee Anstead, R. Fred Lewis, and Chief Justice Barbara Pariente. The terse ruling can be found on the official website at: and is expected to be posted soon on Watts’ online newspaper.

    Responding to claims that he does not have legal right to challenge Schiavo’s detention in the hospice network, Watts declares that “non-lawyers” may intervene in rare instances and quotes “The Operation and Jurisdiction of the Florida Supreme Court” by Gerald Kogan and Robert Craig Waters, the court’s current spokesperson (18 Nova L. Rev. 1151, at 624., Fla. 1994), which states that “Even detention imposed on someone by a private individual potentially can be tested by habeas corpus. The most common use is where one parent alleges that the other parent has taken custody of a child wrongfully.” Mr. Watts also cites other landmark cases to support his claim that he may intervene: State ex rel. Deeb v. Fabisinski, 111 Fla. 454; and, the U.S. Supreme Court’s holding in Whitmore v. Arkansas, 495 U.S. 149, which held that that to be a ‘next friend,’ one need only “provide an adequate explanation--such as inaccessibility, mental incompetence, or other disability--why the real party in interest cannot appear on his own behalf.”

    Some in the news media have made issue with the fact that Watts has filed other cases and labeled him as a “frivolous lawsuit” filer. Watts responds: “When, in the court of public opinion, a news writer wants to write multiple articles and deny me any coverage, I do not call him a ‘frivolous news article’ writer, and likewise, when I find several injustices, I would like to have my right to get a fair day in court to have our freedoms protected in this country of declining morals. Therefore, with everyone distracted by ‘Terri’s Law’, I think it right for me to try to help Theresa Schiavo, the person.”

    Watts, a Biology and Chemical Science honor student and alumni from The Florida State University, hopes that the combined efforts of many people can prevent the danger of placement in medical facilities in which they are prohibited by law.

    After being narrowly denied at Florida’s High Court, Watts plans to appeal to the United State Supreme Court and ask the nation’s highest court for permission to directly intervene on behalf of Terri Schiavo.

  • I guess I am confused. How does the denial by the FSC help since they rejected the plea?

    By Blogger jlfintx, at 12:53 PM  

  • Hi Sherri...and everybody else. Okay, let me preface this by saying I am not advocating Terri's death, nor am I taking the side of her family. This is a fact only response. I don't know whether Terri had an eating disorder or not, but it is definitely possible.
    Here is the thing about eating disorders: Families often have no idea that their child or sibling has such a disorder. As a sibling to a sister that has struggled with eating disorders in the past, and now a counsellor that deals with youth and their families on this particular subject, I do know a thing or two about it. Most families have no idea until it is too late. Another thing, just because you appear to be a decent weight (i.e. 115 lbs at 5'3"), does not mean that you are not imbalanced or malnourished. I have personally worked with a girl who collapsed from malnourishment at 5'6" and 260 lbs. Very sad story, fell victim to "lookism", and while she was a bright and still beautiful girl, she stopped eating because she wanted to fit in at school. Terri quite possibly could have been suffering from such an imbalance at her proportions, especially if she suffered from bulimia nervosa, and being a married woman who did not live at home with her family, it is very plausible that they would have had no idea of her condition. Let me reiterate here that I AM NOT SAYING THAT I KNOW SHE HAD ONE. I am just stating that it's possible. It's also the nature of society to reject the notion that Terri could have done this to herself, and look for the closest, easiest other person to blame. While it is possible that her husband beat her, and even tried to kill her, it is also just as possible that he did not. We, as people, always want to look for the evil in people. We always want someone to blame, and someone to hate. Yes, we want to hate someone. Assuming that you know for sure that her husband did this to her, and hating him on a whim is counter productive. It feeds the hate machine that corrupts our society. The hate that you feel for him, and the hate that a young girl may feel towards her slightly overweight body comes from the same place, and feeds the same monster. Unless you were a fly on the wall in Terri Schiavo's home every day and every night...every MOMENT of her life, don't pretend to know from court tanscripts and whatever else is posted on the web or printed in the papers that you have any clue what her life was like. I don't think I know a d@mn thing about it, all I am saying here is that most of us don't even have the right to an opinion here, because we don't know the circumstances. Shame on those who blame her, and shame on those who blame her husband. THIS IS NOT OUR PLACE TO JUDGE!
