Minnesota: Former Mayo Clinic Doc Charged, Wanted to Help ISIS

Here we go again, a foreign doctor taking advantage of America.

This time a Pakistani here on an H-1B Visa!

BTW, there is news on other topics besides the virus crisis—news that is lost as we fixate on COVID-19!

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune (h/t: Linda):

Ex-Mayo Clinic employee charged with attempting to provide ISIS support

 

A former medical coordinator for Mayo Clinic was arrested at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on Thursday while trying to get to Syria to fight “on the front line” of ISIS.

The FBI arrested 28-year-old Muhammad Masood after he checked in for his flight to Los Angeles. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota has charged Masood with attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, including wanting to serve as a fighter and combat medic and talking of his desire to enact a lone wolf-style attack. Masood made his first appearance in court Thursday.

Better story here on Masood who hated smiling at kuffars! https://rare.us/rare-news/pakistani-doctor-terrorism-charge-minnesota/

Masood is a licensed medical doctor in Pakistan working in the United States on an H-1B Visa for the past two years in the Mayo Clinic Department of Cardiovascular Diseases. In a statement Thursday, Mayo Clinic communications manager Ginger Plumbo said that Masood was not a Mayo Clinic employee at the time of his arrest. It is unclear when his employment ended.

From January to March, Masood made several statements pledging his allegiance to ISIS and its leader, according to charges.

“i want to fight on the front line as well as help the wounded brothers,” he said over an encrypted social media app to confidential informant sources, according to charges. “as i doctor i want to help mujahedeen [sic] on the ground,” he wrote. According to charges, “mujahedeen” refers to those engaged in jihad.

On Feb. 19, Masood traveled to Bloomington to meet with a confidential informant he believed would help him join ISIS. They met in the parking lot of a shopping mall and drove to a nearby hotel. They patched in another informant via video conference, who Masood believed to be an overseas commander vetting him.

Left out of the Star Tribune story is this line from an AP story:

He explained that he wanted to make the trip because he “hates smiling at the passing kuffar just to not make them suspicios.”  The affidavit said kuffar is an Arabic term meaning nonbeliever or non-Muslim. 

Commit that line to memory!

Plastic Surgeon Charged with Drugging/Raping Women on Camera

I don’t know if you can call him an Ohio man (or a Michigan man either), looks like another ‘New American’ doctor taking advantage of women and America!

This sicko is in big trouble!  Complaint filed with the medical board said he “had been drugging and raping women for years.”

Is he one of those immigrant entrepreneurs that Michael Bloomberg’s New American Economy is always raving about?

Here (below) is the sanitized Fox News version of the story involving Dr. Manish Gupta and the charges against him. (I am assuming he is of Indian origin.)

And if you want the R-rated story (this comes with a warning) see it at ClickonDetroit.

 

From Fox News:

Ohio plastic surgeon charged with drugging, raping women on camera

A plastic surgeon primarily based in Ohio was arrested Friday by the FBI for allegedly drugging multiple women to the point of unconsciousness and raping them on camera.

Dr. Manish Gupta, 49, is charged with illegally dispensing controlled substances, aggravated sexual abuse and sex trafficking, Toledo’s WTVG reported. He was booked into Lucas County Corrections Center in Toledo Friday afternoon after a federal search warrant on his phone, residence, personal vehicle and two offices in Lucas County uncovered sex toys, camera equipment, SD cards and vials of Diazepam and Ketamine, which are controlled substances not used in his medical practice, according to WTVG.

While visiting Los Angeles in 2016 to attend a plastic surgery convention, Gupta allegedly arranged for sex with a high-end escort, drugged her to the point of unconsciousness and raped her, according to a court filing in the U.S. District Court in Toledo.

The woman did not file a police report at the time. She took an at-home drug test that showed she had signs of benzodiazepine, a type of medication known as a tranquilizer, in her system, Toledo’s WTOL reported, citing the court filing. She later visited the Rape Treatment Center at the UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica, where she had a rape kit exam performed, WTVG reported.

The woman researched Gupta in an online database used by sex workers to make others aware of possibly dangerous individuals, according to the filing. She said she found multiple other women had reported a man either matching Gupta’s name or description, claiming he drugged, raped and possibly recorded them without their consent, WTOL reported.

Gupta is a board-certified plastic surgeon and medical doctor licensed in both Ohio and Michigan. He owns Artisan Cosmetic Surgery, which has two offices in Ohio and one in Michigan, WTVG reported.

The FBI launched an investigation into the claims against Gupta in January 2019. The investigation revealed that in 2014, an employee working for Gupta found multiple SDs with videos showing the plastic surgeon performing sex acts on motionless women who appeared to be unconscious. In February of this year, the State of Ohio Medical Board received a complaint claiming Gupta had been drugging and raping women for years.

BTW, I found a photo on line of Gupta and his female staffers although his social media accounts have been removed from on-line.  I was going to post the photo, but chose not to because when you read more about the case you will see that some of his staff participated in bringing him to justice. I wouldn’t want there to be any reprisals against them.

Bail Denied in Professor on Professor Attack in Massachusetts

Another story the national media is avoiding like the plague! 

Why? My guess is that because it involves a ‘new American’ committing crimes against Americans (on a lesser scale of course than our Kenyan Killer) and that is not a good look for the Lefties running the media in Donald Trump’s America.

Rie Hachiyanagi with attorney. Hachiyanagi reportedly came to the US as a high school exchange student from Japan and never went home.

This is an update of that very weird news we reported here and here about the December attack on a female Mt. Holyoke professor by a fellow female Mt. Holyoke professor who attempted to kill her colleague in a case of (supposedly) unrequited love.

Here is the latest news from a couple of weeks ago at the Daily Hampshire Gazette about the strange event at the elite (“inclusive”!) Mt. Holyoke. Thanks to reader Cathy for finding it.

Mount Holyoke professor accused of assault denied bail

GREENFIELD — Judge Mark D. Mason on Wednesday morning withheld the right to bail of a Mount Holyoke College professor accused of using a rock, fire poker and garden shears to attack a colleague in the alleged victim’s home late last year.

Rie Hachiyanagi, 48, of South Hadley, pleaded not guilty in Franklin County Superior Court last week to three counts of armed assault to murder a person age 60 or older, three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person age 60 or older, and single counts of mayhem, home invasion and entering a dwelling at night for a felony.

According to a report from Massachusetts State Trooper Geraldine L. Bresnahan, the alleged victim told police Hachiyanagi arrived at her Leverett home unannounced late at night on Dec. 23 and said she “wanted to talk about her feelings.” After being invited inside, Hachiyanagi allegedly attacked the victim, striking her with multiple implements including “fists, rocks, garden clippers and a fire poker.” All objects were recovered by investigators.

The alleged victim, who was present with supporters in court Wednesday, told authorities she believed Hachiyanagi was going to kill her. According to the report, when the victim asked why Hachiyanagi was attacking her, the assailant allegedly said “that she loved her for many years and (she) should have known.” Bresnahan’s report also states the victim convinced Hachiyanagi to stop the attack and call 911 by “playing along” and lying about having reciprocating feelings.

Continue reading to see the kinds of points Hachiyanagi’s attorney raises in his failed bid for her release on bail.  And, if you are wondering, the victim’s identity has not been made public (except surely everyone at Mt. Holyoke knows who she is).

African Woman Assaults Mom at Bus Stop Because She “Hates Whites”

I’m guessing at the outset that the attacker is a Somali, just a guess.  And, if she is, this news could have been posted at Refugee Resettlement Watch this morning along with a post there about a Somali teen attacking his white neighbor and walking free.

Hate crime charges being brought against Nimo Jire Kalinle.

From the New York Post:

Woman punched stranger at Oregon bus stop because she hates ‘white people’: court docs

A black woman is facing hate crime charges in Oregon for allegedly attacking a mom at a bus stop while saying that she hated “white people,” court documents show.

One more ‘new American’ we welcomed to live among us. Well, not we, but the US State Department.

Nimo Jire Kalinle, 42, on Jan. 19 began punching Janae Jordan in the face after getting off a bus at a stop in North Portland, where the victim had been waiting with her husband and young daughter, according to court documents obtained by The Oregonian.

“It’s because you’re white and I hate white people,” Kalinle told Jordan when the woman asked why she was attacking her, a probable cause affidavit shows.

The victim’s husband stepped in and restrained Kalinle, who is black, until cops arrived, KPTV reports.

Jordan told investigators she did not know Kalinle and had never met her prior to the alleged bias attack, the station reports.

Kalinle, who was taken into custody Sunday, was later indicted on multiple criminal counts in the bus stop assault, including first-degree bias crime, felony assault and interfering with public transportation. She pleaded not guilty to those charges Monday, KPTV reports.

Kalinle was arrested after failing to show up for a Feb. 5 arraignment, prompting authorities to issue a bench warrant for her arrest in the bus stop beatdown, The Oregonian reports.

I expect that when she appears in court on March 6th, we will hear that she is mentally incompetent just like the punk in Missouri which begs the question, what happened to “robust vetting?”

Aren’t we weeding out the mentally impaired?  I know the answer—we are not blocking the admission of migrants who need mental health treatment.

This story reminds me of the 2016 story  at RRW about a Somali woman attacking a white woman in her own yard with a flag pole.  I think that Somali refugee woman is still on the loose.

Ohio Somalis Charged in $10 Million Food Stamp Fraud Bust

Editor:  Sorry to readers who posted comments in the last couple of days, I took a break and never did see your comments until this morning.  They are posted now.

For readers who knew Phil Haney, see my post at RRW today.

 

(On illegally trading food stamp benefits for cash) “They get food stamps, but they can’t buy a lot of things with food stamps.”

(Yahya Mohammed)

 

I haven’t seen a substantial food stamp fraud bust in awhile.  Glad to see that the feds are still going after the ‘new American’ entrepreneurs Michael Bloomberg is always touting.

Somalis in Columbus, Ohio this time.

From NBC4:

Feds charge Columbus market owners with food stamp fraud totaling more than $10 million

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The former owners of a Somali specialty market have been charged with food stamp fraud.

A federal grand jury has charged Hassan and Abdurahim Nuriso, former owners of Towfiq Market on Sullivant Avenue, with conspiring fraudulently to redeem more than $10 million in SNAP and WIC benefits between 2010 and 2019.

“It’s very clear in all the regulations what you can and can’t do,” said Asst. U.S. Attorney David Bosley. “You can’t give food stamps for cash, you can’t buy items that are not allowed under the food stamp program, you can’t buy things that aren’t food, and you can’t give credit.”

As part of the alleged conspiracy, the Nuriso brothers are accused of converting illegally obtained food stamp benefits, WIC coupons, and WIC electronic benefits into money, in order to use the money for other purposes.

The five-count indictment also alleges the Nuriso’s allowed SNAP and WIC beneficiaries to purchase items that were not redeemable through the food stamp or WIC programs.

This is hilarious! So the SNAP benefit card is just like a bank card?

Yahya Mohammed owns a barbershop in the same west side plaza. He says Abdurahim Noriso was well-intentioned.

“I know it’s wrong, but he’s really just helping his community out,” Mohammed said. “People are just trying to survive. They get food stamps, but they can’t buy a lot of things with food stamps.”

More here.

If you followed this case to its conclusion, I assure you the pair will get very little prison time, maybe will be ordered to pay some of the money back to the taxpayers, but will never be deported.

I’ve followed food stamp fraud stories for over ten years, first at Refugee Resettlement Watch and now here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’  The number of busts seem to have slowed. Maybe some ‘new American’ wannabe fraudsters are getting the message. Who knows.
