Michigan: Muslim doctor who prescribed unnecessary chemo, pleads guilty in $91M Medicare fraud

In a surprise move, Oakland County oncologist Dr. Farid Fata has pleaded guilty to charges in a scheme to bilk Medicare out at least $91 million by prescribing unnecessary treatments and in some cases telling patients who weren’t sick that they had cancer

“It is my choice,” Fata said of his decision to plead guilty. “I knew that the infusions … were medically unnecessary.”

The Detroit Free Press, The Detroit News and other area media are reporting that Fata, 49, pleased guilty to health care fraud, money laundering and conspiracy to give and get kickbacks – 16 counts in all.

When Fata is sentenced on Feb. 23, 2015, he could face up to 175 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the health-care fraud counts, and a $500,000 fine for money laundering. U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said she will seek a life sentence for what she called the most egregious case of health-care fraud she’s ever seen.5418c9153f2ad

“We have seen health care fraud before … but this one really is unique in that he exploited patients,” McQuade said.

Fata’s plea comes on the first day of a hearing on motions filed in the trial that was to have begun next month. Fata still has to answer six remaining counts of health-care fraud in a trial scheduled for March 16.

Whistleblower Angela Swantek, a Royal Oak chemotherapy nurse who became suspicious of some of the practices in Fata’s clinic in a 2010 interview and reported him to state health officials, told the Free Press she wasn’t surprised that Fata pleaded guilty to the charges.

“I wondered how his team was going to defend him,” she said. “The charts don’t lie.”

Survivors of two of Fata’s patients told The Detroit News they’re disappointed that that the full story won’t be told in court. Liz Lupo, whose mother died of lung cancer in 2007, and Cynthia Burt, whose sister died in 2011, think Fata’s treatments were responsible for their loved ones’ deaths.

“He’s not being charged with enough,” Lupo said. “He pled guilty to a handful of patients when there were thousands. We wanted to hear the details about how he was allowed to (do this).”

But said she’s glad Fata accepted responsibility and hopes he’ll pay for his crimes with life in prison, but she said the plea deal cheats “the patients and family members (who) are not going to get the answers they seek.”

Court Rules in Favor of Muslim Mob Violence in Dearborn, Against Free Speech

Freedom has left the building. And been replaced with sharia law.

An absolutely huge victory for the sharia and will result in much more Muslim mob violence (aka JIHAD) and we predict the death not only of free speech but of non-Muslims who exercise free speech speaking against Islam. via Court Rules Against Christians in Arab Festival Case – CBN News

A federal appeals court ruled against a group of Christian evangelists who were forced to leave an Arab-American street festival in Dearborn, Michigan, in 2012.

Festival-goers threw rocks and water bottles at members of the Bible Believers group when they denounced Islam and called Mohammed a false prophet.

In response, Wayne County authorities threatened to ticket the Christian group if they did not leave.

On Wednesday, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals backed county authorities, ruling 2-1 that police were only trying to keep public order.

“The video from the 2012 festival demonstrates that (evangelists’) speech and conduct intended to incite the crowd to turn violent. … Although robustly guarded by the First Amendment, religious conduct remains subject to regulation for the protection of society,” the three-judge panel wrote in its ruling.

But one dissenting judge said the police should have tried to control the lawbreakers rather than stifle free speech.

“The First Amendment protects plaintiffs’ speech, however bilious it was,” Judge Eric Clay wrote in his 11-page dissent. “The majority … provides a blueprint for the next police force that wants to silence speech without having to go through the burdensome process of law enforcement. I expect we will see this case again.”

From the American Freedom Law Center legal team: Divided Sixth Circuit Panel Issues “Dangerously Wrong” Opinion, Allowing Muslim Violence to Trump the First Amendment

Muise commented:

“The Sixth Circuit’s ruling is an unprecedented blow to the First Amendment.  As Judge Clay stated quite accurately in his dissent, this decision is ‘dangerously wrong.’  But this fight is far from over.  We will be filing a petition for en banc (full court) review of this important First Amendment case within the next two weeks.  And if that petition is not granted, we will seek review in the U.S. Supreme Court.”

David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, added:

This decision is quite troubling and indeed dangerous, particularly in light of the fact that Muslim violence is escalating around the globe and here at home.  The fact that the court’s decision rewards and thus encourages such violence as a legitimate means of suppressing speech that is critical of Islam jeopardizes the constitutional safeguards that our Founding Fathers fought so hard to establish.  And more problematic is the fact that this decision, if allowed to stand, will do more to encourage Muslim violence than anything our Christian clients ever said.”

Support AFLC, you may need them one day soon.

Carter tells Muslims: ‘use principals of Allah to bring peace and justice to all’

DETROIT — Former President Jimmy Carter said today that Muslim Americans should use their religious principals to support peace and justice efforts for all.

Carter delivered the keynote address at Saturday’s Islamic Society of North America convention at Cobo Center, where he also spoke about his foundation’s work in the Middle East.

“We are all Americans in a system that allows basic human rights: peace, justice and the ability to treat each other as equals,” Carter told the attendees of a fundraiser luncheon. “I hope all of you will use the principals of Allah to bring peace and justice to all.”

No &^%ing thanks. The principles of Allah are exactly what Hamas, ISIS, CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood, al Shabaab, Abu Sayaff, MILF, FSA and every other Islamic group are using to try and bring Islamic justice to all. It must be fought.

We now have a current president and at least one former president openly working with designated Islamic terrorist groups and promoting Islam.

Michigan: Muslim Capitol rally v. anti-ISIS rally (pic)

Muslim Capitol Day is a day when Muslims perform dawah on elected officials in the hopes of spreading sharia law at the highest levels. Usually organized by CAIR-Hamas.

Muslim Capitol Day 2014

For more Muslims participated in it than the handful of Muslims and non-Muslims protesting ISIS in Dearborn.

Had Muslims opposed Muslim groups like CAIR, Hamas, Hizbollah, al Qaeda, ISNA, MSA, MAS, al Shabaab, etc. in the years leading up to and following 9/11 rather than smearing anyone who opposed jihad and sharia as Islamophobes, there’d be no need for this too-little-too-late gathering. As noted yesterday, Muslims can’t even get along with each other in the U.S.

Neither group come close to the number of Dearborn Muslims on the known terrorist-watch list. But this is interesting nonetheless.

Michigan: Muslim cleric popular with ISIS owes govt $250,000

via Mich. cleric popular with Islamic State owes $250K. h/t Atlas Shrugs.

DETROIT — A cleric in Dearborn popular with supporters of the Islamic State owes a quarter-million dollars in restitution and other costs stemming from his fraud convictions, according to newly filed court records.

Ahmad Jebril, 43, who has gained an international following among Islamic State fighters and sympathizers, is on probation after serving 6 1/2 years in prison. After being released in 2012, he has used social media to become what experts say is the most popular religious leader for Islamists from the West fighting for the Islamic State.

Federal authorities in Detroit are trying to collect more than $250,000 in restitution from Jebril and more than $3,600 in special assessments for 42 counts of fraud. So far, Jebril has paid only $2,790, according to a motion filed Aug. 11 by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Detroit. On Aug. 12, U.S. District Judge Gerald Rosen approved the government’s motion, which calls for “actions necessary to enforce the collection of the restitution.”

In the motion, federal prosecutors wrote that a probation officer said she has “financial information about (Jebril) that would be helpful” to set up an “appropriate repayment schedule.” Jebril’s liability for restitution expires 20 years after his release from prison, which means he would have to pay more than $1,000 a month to pay his amount in full, which he is not meeting, said prosecutors.

Jebril and his attorney did not returns calls or an e-mail seeking comment. He was to appear for a deposition in the case on Aug. 13.

The government’s move to collect money from Jebril comes after Rosen placed restrictions on the Dearborn cleric in June because of his probation violations. Jebril was traveling out of state to speak at Islamic centers, but now is not allowed to leave the eastern half of Michigan and must share information about his computer activity to his probation officers if asked. The restrictions came after a Free Press report in May that noted his extensive activities online.

The Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence released a report in April that said Jebril was the most popular inspirational figure for Western fighters flocking to the Middle East to join forces of the Islamic State. Jebril’s “popularity is particularly strong among groups like” this, the report said. Among the militants the center surveyed, more than half of those who liked Jebril on his Facebook page and followed him on Twitter were with the Islamic State.

“A number of British (Islamic State) fighters have told us that they watched his (Jebril’s) lecture series … before embarking on jihad,” the report said, which was written by three security experts for a center affiliated with five universities.

Jebril often interacts on Twitter with fighters associated with the Islamic State and other groups, the report said.

Jebril also is popular with Jabhat al-Nusra, another extremist group that operates in Syria. Jebril’s Facebook page was the most popular among the fighters surveyed, according to the report.

Jebril and his father were convicted in 2005 of 42 counts of fraud of almost $400,000 that included mail fraud, bank fraud, failure to pay income tax and money laundering.

The two deliberately defaced rental properties in order to collect insurance money. They also were convicted of trying to bribe a juror in their trial by offering to pay for her wedding if she helped acquit them.

Meanwhile, supporters of Jebril are rallying online to the defense of the Dearborn cleric, saying the government is unfairly cracking down on him.

In recent weeks, followers have tweeted support for Jebril, claiming he is being silenced, but the government has not banned him from speaking out or posting online. Jebril’s popular Twitter (26,000-plus followers) and Facebook (219,000-plus likes) accounts have not posted anything since July 9.

Michigan: Lansing mayor’s to host Ramadan dinner…days before 9/11

Ramadan ended in July, according to the Sharia Council of North America (did you know there was one?). Why then are the mayor’s of Lansing, Michigan holding a Ramadan dinner  – at taxpayer expense – just days before 9/11? Could it be that classless and clueless mayor’s prostrate themselves for Islam and take advise from Muslim coordinators, as noted on the flyer below?

The mission of the Ramadan Unity Dinner to demonstrate the importance of diversity and the Muslim culture.

1044684_634689426629239_1096442485392545248_nWhat’s so great about Muslim culture? There’s no love, no humor, no music, no beauty. The only people flocking to Muslim countries are Muslims who want to wage jihad. In fact, most aspects of Muslim culture are antithetical to American culture and should be kept far away. It’s why, we’re told, so many Muslims emigrate to America. Maybe the mayor’s could provide some examples of Muslim culture – not Arab – that they so enjoy.

DOJ forces Dearborn Heights school district to teach in & translate all documents to Arabic

via Mich. district to boost programs for immigrant students. (Notice the innocuous, seemingly deceptive, story title given by stealth Muslim Niraj Warikoo)

A Detroit-area school district with a growing Arab-American population has agreed to improve its programs for students with limited English skills and to potentially hire more educators of Arab descent.

In a 31-page agreement with the Department of Justice, the Crestwood School District in Dearborn Heights says it “shall take appropriate action to overcome language barriers that impede equal and meaningful participation by” students with limited English skills.

The settlement also requires the district to provide school documents in both English and foreign languages such as Arabic and to promote a more diverse staff. The agreement was released in both Arabic and English.

A great victory for the civilizational jihadists.

“This is a great victory for the Arab-American community and its children to become contributing citizens in our country,” said Shereef Akeel, a Troy attorney who filed a federal complaint in 2011 on behalf of Hiam Brinjikji, a counselor in the school district who complained about the district’s neglect of Arab immigrant students.

District officials could not be immediately reached for comment.

Brinjikji, who is of Arab descent, said in the federal complaint that she complained about the lack of attention to Arab-American students who didn’t know English well. She also said the district wasn’t hiring enough Arab-Americans and said she was retaliated against for complaining.

Dept. of Jihad gets involved because one biased person complained?

Last year, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled that the Crestwood district had violated federal civil rights laws.

But in Wednesday’s agreement, “the district admits no liability to violations of” a 1974 federal law banning discrimination in education.

The agreement gives detailed, specific instructions to Crestwood on how to improve its programs for those with limited English skills. The district has to ask all parents to fill out a home language survey to identify potential students who don’t know English well.

“The District shall provide ESL (English as a Second Language) instruction to all students who do not receive proficient (test) scores for each of the four language domains of speaking, listening, reading, and writing,” the agreement said.

All teachers must be rated on how effectively they administer one of the programs. And the district has to report on their progress at various points over the next four years.

The agreement also says the district must hire sufficient interpreters and translators so that all letters, notices, and other documents are available in languages needed. The agreement doesn’t specify Arabic, but given that the agreement centered around complaints from Arab-Americans, it will probably include that.

Other requirements of the agreement include increased community outreach, more diversity in hiring, and developing anti-retaliation programs.

In other words, recruiting and hiring Muslims…who will discriminate against non-Muslims.

Michigan taxpayers now fund Arabic…which is always complemented with Islamic propaganda.

Gene Simmons, himself an immigrant, has a message for this ludicrous submission:

Or as philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein once wrote:

The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.
