Michigan: See List of Docs Illegally Pushing Opiods

There are some American-sounding names on the list, but gosh this looks like a list of names of UN delegates or something…

From the Detroit Free Press:

Michigan’s opioid pushers: Is your doctor on this list?

 

Michigan locks up more doctors and pharmacists for peddling pain pills than any other state except New York, the Department of Justice says.

A Free Press investigation focused on this trend and found that metro Detroit doctors in particular are among the leading culprits fueling the opioid crisis, with more than 100 area physicians facing criminal charges over the last decade for running painkiller schemes.

I guess these are some of the ‘new American’ entrepreneurs the Open Borders propagandists are always telling us about.

How Two Massive Fraud Cases Intersected

Because the cases are instructive and because, yes, I do write from time to time about American frauds and crooks not just the ‘New American’ variety, here is an extensive piece at the LA Times about how perhaps the largest Medicare fraud case in US history intersected with the College Admissions scam involving the rich and well-connected.

Philip Esformes
Philip Esformes before the fall.  As a flight risk he has been behind bars since July 2016 awaiting sentencing in September.

Now if only a paper with the stature of the LA Times would put an investigative journalist to work on the Kenyan Killer case where as one reader pointed out it would be difficult for the alleged prolific killer Billy Chemirmir to pawn that much jewelry without help, a network of criminals (dependent on old ladies being murdered) might be exposed.
I’ve reported previously on the case of Philip Esformes who ran a nursing home empire built on defrauding you and me, American taxpayers, but haven’t written about the Singer scam designed for elites to get their little darlings into top tier colleges.

FBI found clues to college admissions scandal years earlier in massive Medicare fraud case

 

Federal authorities were combing through the finances and phone records of a Miami businessman suspected of Medicare fraud when they came across a curious name: Rick Singer.

Rick Singer
Rick Singer https://www.foxnews.com/us/who-is-william-rick-singer-college-admissions-cheating-scandals-alleged-ringleader

Philip Esformes, who was accused of farming out patients from his nursing homes to steal millions in bogus insurance claims, had sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to a foundation Singer controlled. And in text messages discovered on Esformes’ phone, the men discussed how one of Esformes’ sons had performed on his college entrance exams.
Only years later would authorities learn what Esformes had paid Singer to do: Slip his daughter into USC as a fake soccer player and fix his youngest son’s college entrance exam, according to statements a prosecutor made in court and sources familiar with the case.
Singer has said he struck similar deals with dozens more parents, an admission that has roiled higher education and implicated elites from Hollywood, Silicon Valley and the Newport coast.
But in 2016, when agents seized the iPhone Esformes used to text Singer and obtained their messages, Singer was a peripheral, if curious, player in an enormous healthcare fraud investigation. The Esformes case marks the first time Singer is known to have crossed the radar of law enforcement.

[….]

It is unclear how much federal authorities uncovered of Esformes’ dealings with Singer while investigating his case. But at his trial in March, a fraud expert used by the government to make sense of his finances testified that Esformes had made $400,000 in payments over several years to Singer’s foundation. At least some of the money was traced to Medicaid and Medicare funds, the expert testified.

Too funny! Esformes paid Singer $400,000 and his daughter did get into USC as a fake soccer player, but get this…

The daughter, who could not be reached for comment, was enrolled at USC for a year before transferring to a fashion school in New York City, according to a source with knowledge of the case and her LinkedIn profile.

Russians and Egyptians Win Big in Diversity Visa Lottery Drawing

Oh joy! more Russians*** and more Egyptians to help speed up the goal of changing America by changing the people!

Trump called the Diversity Visa Lottery “the worst of the worst!”

I guess most of you know by now that we have a legal immigration program called the Diversity Visa Lottery (aka Green Card Lottery) because America isn’t sufficiently diversified and each year 50,000 US citizen wannabes from around the world (except from countries that have sent 50,000 of their people recently) get a ticket to Anytown, USA.
The President has voiced his opposition to the giveaway, but so far Congress continues to support the program.
Here the Miami Herald tells us who the lucky winners are this year:

Egyptian and Russian citizens won the most U.S. green cards in this year’s random visa lottery

More than 23 million people from around the world — the applicants and their family members or “derivatives” — tried this year to legally immigrate to the United States and achieve the American Dream through the visa lottery program, the U.S. State Department statistics show.

jackpot
See what Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review said about the lottery in 2017.  https://www.conservativereview.com/news/end-the-diversity-visa-lottery-today/

Winners were selected through a randomized computer drawing from over 14 million qualified entries received during the 34-day application period last year.
According to the department, the visas were distributed among six geographic regions “with a maximum of seven percent available to persons born in any single country.”
The two countries that won most immigrant visas were Egypt and Russia, with 5,568 and 5,118 winners, respectively, of this year’s DV-2020 diversity lottery, followed by the Democratic Republic of Congo (4,743 applicants selected), Iran (4,101), Nepal (3,696) and Sudan (3,691).

What the hell!
Are we moving the whole of the DR Congo to America? 
We’ve ‘welcomed’ 50,000 from the DR Congo already as refugees, see here, and they are streaming across the US border illegally and ending up in Maine, here, and we still take thousands from that African hot mess of a country through the lottery!
The Miami Herald continues….

Last year, Iran received the highest number of visas — 4,199 — followed by the Democratic Republic of Congo (4,186), Egypt, Ukraine (4,025) and Ethiopia (3,856).
In the Americas region, natives from Cuba benefited the most from this year’s DV-2020 drawing, and 2,703 Cuban nationals were selected at random for a green card. It is a substantial increase compared to last year, when only 326 citizens of Cuba won.  [Really, Cuba! we don’t have enough migrants from Cuba?—-ed]
[….]
The visa lottery is one of the immigration programs that President Donald Trump has openly criticized. He has said that the “worst of the worst” are selected in the cost-free process.
“About 70 percent of immigrants who come to the United States today are admitted based on family relationships or through a random visa lottery —a system that favors random chance over the skills our economy needs,” President Trump’s Immigration Plan for the 21st Century says.

There is much more and a lot of links to follow in the story, go here for more.
My earlier posts on this outrageous legal immigration program signed into law by George HW Bush in 1990 are here.
***Coincidentally my friend Richard just yesterday sent me a 2018 story from VDARE (Mainstream media won’t name Medicare Fraudsters) which educates us to the fact that a very large amount of Medicare fraud is linked to immigrant fraudsters with Russians topping the list.  Ah, the joys of diversity!

Doctor Sentenced to Prison in Bank Fraud Case, Could be Deported When Released

I hate these stories about bank fraud because they have so many twists and turns that they make my head spin.

Dr. Aslam
Dr. Zahid Aslam is going to jail!

And, this one might not have been worth even writing about except that a headline caught my eye—a rare headline that uses the word “deportation” because he was in the country illegally as he proceeded to defraud us.
I was also interested because the crook was practicing medicine in Maryland (New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware as well).
Here is the headline at the Business Journal,

Former doctor faces possible deportation after being sentenced to prison in fraud case

I couldn’t access that story because apparently I’ve read too many stories there recently, but don’t worry because the case of gynecologist Dr. Zahid Aslam is covered extensively in other publications going back a couple of years.

Wyoming: Kahn Brothers Found Guilty in Drug Conspiracy Case

Kahn “preyed on” addicted people for years, and the verdict confirmed that a person’s profession does not put them above the law.***

(Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie Sprecher)

 
One more story about ‘new Americans’ getting rich (for awhile) by dealing in controlled substances ostensibly for pain management.  Ho hum!  So what else is new?

Dr. Kahn and Lyn
Dr. Shakeel Kahn and wife Lyn

However, this story interested me for the primary reason that it is from Wyoming (not Michigan! not California! not any state where large numbers of new Americans are selling drugs, or dirty docs are prescribing them!).
By the way, and unrelated to this story, is the fact that Wyoming is the only state in the nation that doesn’t resettle refugees.
Also, interesting is the fact that Dr. Shakeel Kahn’s wife, originally a patient, then a ‘wife’ and partner in the crime, became a witness for the prosecution after their arrest in one of their several homes.
People traveled from faraway states to Wyoming to pick up their illegal drug prescriptions.
Additionally, Kahn was implicated in the death of one patient from Arizona.
