Dr. Farid Fata is accused of bilking Medicare out of at least $91 million with phony cancer diagnoses and unnecessary treatments.
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.
Now, who was he working with, CAIR, ISIS or al Qaeda?
ht/ just the tip
In a news conference that featured Native American, civil rights and religious leaders, Sen. Maria Cantwell took aim at the NFL’s pocketbook by announcing she will introduce a bill to strip the league’s tax-exempt status because it has not taken action over the Redskins name.
Overall, the message from the “Change the Mascot” leaders was that they don’t plan to go away, despite Redskins owner Dan Snyder’s vow not to change the name. They presented a letter that will be sent to every NFL owner except Snyder, asking each to use his “position of authority” to end the league’s “promotion of a dictionary-defined racial slur.”
Cantwell appeals to the authority of the dictionary. Let’s do the same -
MARRIAGE – THE FORMAL UNION OF A MAN AND A WOMAN
Next up: Leftist politicians demand changes in the dictionary to reflect their own personal political beliefs.
Included in the article is this doozy from Eleanor Holmes.
Did you know she plans on being in congress in 2027?
The debate over the name could influence the Redskins’ plans to build a new stadium when their lease at FedEx Field, located in D.C.’s Maryland suburbs, expires in 2027. Eleanor Holmes Norton, the district’s delegate to Congress, said the team would have a hard time moving back to the city unless the name is changed. “I would make every effort in the Congress to make sure they could not come back with that name,” Norton said.
I think this is a far bigger problem than the name Redskins – representatives who believe their time in DC is not only guaranteed, it is for a lifetime.
This video has been around awhile, but it’s worth posting because there is an interesting debate in the YouTube comments.

A Muslim worker at a KFC restaurant in Sydney has been suspended after he was filmed screaming vicious insults and threatening to attack a customer.
The violent outburst happened at a Halal-friendly KFC in Punchbowl on December 26, allegedly after a customer became angry after being refused bacon on their burger.
The Punchbowl restaurant does not serve bacon or pork in accordance with Islamic law, and one employee can be heard saying “we don’t have bacon” before the other begins yelling.
“Don’t record me bitch!” he screams as he approaches the counter. “Don’t f—ing record me!”
The employee continues to yell and smacks the cash register display on its side, before other workers grab him and lead him outside.
“I’m gonna f—in break your head bro,” he says to the person filming as he is led around the corner out of sight.
Gimpy And yet how many people watching this believe that bakers should have the right to discriminate against gay couples looking for a wedding cake? The people who believe that bakers can discriminate on the basis of religious freedom believe that this guy deserve (sic) to be fired, even though he’s following his religion.
This comment doesn’t make sense. What makes the Muzzie wrong is his reaction to being asked for a bacon cheeseburger. He threatened the customer.
The KFC can choose to limit its menu to a crouton. They don’t have the right to flip out if someone asks for lettuce.
Now, if the Muzzie flipped out because the government forced him to sell bacon, then I would side with the Muzzie.
That’s what is happening to the baker. He is being forced to perform a service he doesn’t want to perform.
Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that a comprehensive amnesty bill would have helped America contain the Ebola epidemic in Africa.
“We included in the immigration reform bill, which passed the United States Senate, a provision which provided, in one respect, if you are medically trained in Africa and promise to serve in Africa for a period of time before going anywhere else, we would honor that and respect that and not allow people to be recruited into the United States if they still had an obligation to their country,” Durbin said, according to the Washington Times. “And secondly, that doctors in the United States would be able to serve in these crisis situations overseas without jeopardizing their immigration status.”
The Daily Mail ran a picture of Sarah Palin with no makeup.
I don’t want to post it on the front page because I don’t want people to simply see the picture and think we’re running it in the same spirit as a tabloid – thinking she looks bad and that we are enemies of Sarah Palin.
I want people to read my take on the picture before seeing it.
I think she looks different, but not bad. She’s disheveled, yes, probably having been to the gym, but she still looks a helluva lot better than Moose in a sparkly ball gown.
I also like how Sarah is flipping the bird.
The Daily Mail’s take on the picture is that Sarah is not wearing her wedding ring, which spells trouble for the Palins, especially on the heels of their “Thrilla in Wasilla,” (the fist fight at the birthday party.)
Stay in their heads Barracuda.
What’s the difference between using money to get someone elected or using money to harass, impeach, or recall once they get in office?
The left are simply warts on the boil on the ass of an ass.
If Citizens United is overturned, the game will be to not use big money on the front end, it will be used on the back end to completely hamstring an elected foe.
This will be the norm until the strategy starts helping the right more than the left and then they’ll run whimpering and crying to the courts to help them out again.
$6.4 Million from Soros Behind Legal Battles for 3 Conservative 2016 Contenders, Media Ignore
The group that first filed an indictment charge against Texas Gov. Rick Perry was funded by Soros, the liberal billionaire, but the trail of his money didn’t end there. Both the recall election for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and an even less successful recall attempt for Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal were rooted in Soros-funded groups. Between them, these three potential Republican presidential candidates were targeted by groups receiving more than $6.3 million from Soros.
The media should be reporting on this connection, but so far they have completely ignored it. None of the broadcast news coverage of Walker’s recall election or Perry’s indictment on ABC, CBS or NBC have mentioned Soros. Attempts to recall Jindal weren’t mentioned by the networks, although left-wing outlets like The Huffington Post tried to promote them. Soros Joined Unions to Recall Scott Walker.
Vermont schools ban brownies: ‘The kids like kale here’
MONTPELIER, Vt. – To Vermont public schools, the brownie is as old fashioned as the powdered wig.
Brownies and other chocolate treats are now officially banned by the state. Vermont Watchdog reports the state is now pushing fruit kebabs, kale and gluten-free paleo lemon bars as school treats.
The ban comes in an attempt to comply with new federal school lunch and snack regulations championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.
Context is important, so let me open with this: On the very day I’m writing these words, Sharyl Attkisson, an Emmy-winning journalist, has dropped a well-sourced, in-depth report that claims that under Hillary Clinton, State Department officials hid “damaging documents” from the Accountability Review Board — the official committee charged with looking into the fatal September 11, 2012, attack on our consulate in Benghazi.
Thus far, not a single mainstream media source has picked up the story.
What Attkisson doesn’t appear to understand is that if you want the national media in DC and New York to create a frenzy around your reporting, that reporting shouldn’t come from an award-winning journalist with decades of experience and well-placed sources. Instead, it should come from a local online gossip columnist with no sources and no interest in tracking down the truth. Of course it also helps if the
reporter the gossip columnist and elite media share a certain passion in common: a seething contempt and hatred for former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family.
Yesterday, we wrote that Django Unchained actress Daniele Watts and her boyfriend, who is white, claimed she was handcuffed by police for refusing to show her ID after someone thought she was a hooker for kissing him. Watts posted on Facebook:
Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place.
…And moreover, I deeply enjoyed connecting with the cops who detained me. I allowed myself to be honest about my anger, frustration, and rage as tears flowed from my eyes. The tears I cry for a country that calls itself “the land of the free and the home of the brave” and yet detains people for claiming that very right.
But witness accounts and police audio of the altercation paint a very different picture.
The left’s homeless pingpong
Watch out. When liberals control paradise, welcome to Paradise Lost.
Case in point: Hawaii, the deep-blue home state of President Obama. The City Council for Honolulu, on Hawaii’s most populous island of Oahu, has decided to send its homeless population to another island, just outside of Honolulu Harbor.
George HW Bush announces plans to bomb Iraq
Bill Clinton announces plans to bomb Iraq
George W Bush announces plans to bomb Iraq
Barack Obama announces plans to bomb Iraq (But in a much different, fundamentally transformed, enlightened and intellectual, first black president way.)
The left protested 2 of these announcements. Guess which ones.
Hint: Rob Reiner is not flying to the middle east to be a human shield.
The Daily Mail reports -
‘If we don’t force him to have peace, we won’t have peace … Netanyahu is not the guy,’ the unidentified pro-palestinian activist told Clinton, according to the The New York Post.
‘I agree with that,’ Bill responded.
She could be 100 pounds, she’d still be a slob.
Fire roasted pork never melted fat.
Gastric sleeves do.
They certainly don’t serve Sovereign.
They should serve Messcafe’.
