Corporate Whistleblower Center Looking for Partners

How cool is this!  The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well!

Regular readers know that I’ve been telling you about scams involving Medicare and Medicaid that are often perpetrated through long term care facilities for the elderly or disabled.

And, I’ve told you that if you help the government find the fraud, you can make money if the government recovers funds stolen from taxpayers.

Now here comes a group banding together to go after this fraud with the lure of making money AND making yourself such a hero you could run for Congress!

That last part made me laugh because I’ve said on previous occasions that one could craft a whole campaign for elected office around the goal of exposing fraud, waste and abuse involving taxpayer dollars.

From PR Newswire,

Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Goes After Nursing Homes Ripping Off Medicare/Medicaid From California to Florida for Whistleblower Rewards and a Physician or Investor is Invited to Participate as a Partner-Become a Local Hero-Make Money

 

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We have just launched our most ambitious initiative ever to go after nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, rehab centers and or acute care facilities that are overbilling Medicare or Medicaid for services that were never performed, and we need some financial partners in some specific states. When we say ‘services never performed’ we are referring to facilities that are so understaffed their patients are prematurely dying. Short staffing is the foundation and starting point for our state specific whistleblower reward initiatives. While these types of healthcare facilities might be extremely understaffed-they are billing Medicare or Medicaid as if they are fully staffed.

“We are inviting a successful physician, dentist or an investor in one of our targeted states such as California, Florida, Pennsylvania, Illinois or Ohio to financially participate in this venture and to share in the whistleblower rewards. A medical doctor/dentist or investor who financially participates with us in one of the states we have mentioned could probably run for Congress in a couple years after the notoriety they will gain for their participation in our initiative as we would like to discuss with them anytime at 866-714-6466. We also want to emphasize this initiative is very focused on making certain our financial partners make money.”

Of course, I am not advocating for this new ‘business’ model just bringing you news you might find of interest.

question markYou know what you need to do, right!—keep an eye on granny (or any family member) who resides at a long term care facility to assure that they are being cared for properly and that there is no financial funny-business going on with Medicare or Medicaid. Report suspicions of fraud or medical abuse!

 

 

Southern Poverty Law Center Targeting Me Again

Once again I have made the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hate Group List.

For a couple of years I made a joke of it.  But, it isn’t funny when they put a target on a writer with whom they disagree with the obvious goal of silencing her—that would be me!

Magnifying glass, close-up, elevated view

My first inclination was to ignore them this year so that I don’t put my safety in jeopardy, but no, what the heck, here goes….

Frankly, I thought by now their ‘researchers’ would have read my work at Refugee Resettlement Watch and learned that RRW is NOT a group.  It is/was a publication to report my research and voice my opinions.

And, to further demonstrate their careless ‘investigation’, RRW is not even an active blog any longer.

Merriam-Websters Dictionary defines a group as follows:

two or more figures forming a complete unit in a composition

The word “two” is the operative word.  There is only one person in this ‘group’ and that is me! I write my blogs alone and am paid by no one!

This SPLC artwork is part of the campaign to target me and my opinions! 

My hate crime (defined by the SPLC) as a writer at RRW was to research and write (for over ten years) about the US Refugee Admissions Program with a goal of seeing the program reformed, but in doing so I obviously angered powerful friends of the SPLC and thus became a target.

So the SPLC’s sloppy work leads to sloppy journalism like this story at the Annapolis Patch from Saturday.

No qualifiers, no research on the part of reporters, they just took the word of the SPLC!

21 Hate Groups Are Active In Maryland

BALTIMORE, MD — Maryland is home to 21 radical groups that spew hate – an increase of three from two years ago. Among them are Neo-Nazis, black and white nationalists and groups whose members are anti-Muslim or which exist to deny the Holocaust.

The list has been drawn up by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which located the groups on an interactive map.

Before I give you the groups in Maryland, ask yourselves how many actually exist?  If they have me, a one person blog, on their target list, then could some of their other groups be simply one person!  Or, perhaps they don’t exist at all? 

The SPLC counts on ‘reporters’ who swallow their lists, hook, line, and sinker!

The groups (supposedly) located in Maryland are:

American Free Press in Upper Marlboro, general hate
Barnes Review/Foundation for Economic Liberty, Inc., headquarters in Upper Marlboro, Holocaust denial
Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, statewide
Identity Evropa, white nationalists, statewide
Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge, black nationalist, Baltimore
Jamaat Al-Muslimeen, general hate, Baltimore
Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, statewide
Patriot Front, white nationalists, statewide
Refugee Resettlement Watch, anti-Muslim, Fairplay
The Right Stuff, white nationalist, Baltimore
Watchmen of Israel, black nationalist, Baltimore
Atomwaffen Division, neo-Nazi, statewide
Be Active Front USA, racist skinhead, statewide
Great Millstone, black nationalist, Baltimore
Israelite Church of God in Jesus Christ, black nationalist, Baltimore
Israelite The Branches, black nationalist, Baltimore
Label 56, hate music, Baltimore
Noble Klans of America, Ku Klux Klan, statewide
Proud Boys, general hate, Baltimore
Revolutionary Black Panther Party, black nationalist, Baltimore
United Kingdom of Israel Congregation, black nationalist, Baltimore

More of the Patch story here.  Don’t miss the comments as almost all of them at this point are anti-SPLC!

Are you on their Hate Map See here.

I guess I am going to have to take some action regarding the SPLC.  I don’t know what that is yet because all I have is my voice.

question markWhat can you do?  Speak up if you are on their list.  Or, if you see fake news stories like this one at the Patch, send in comments as so many did in Maryland.
