“A drug dealer in a lab coat is still just a drug dealer!”
(United States Attorney Mike Stuart)
Ho hum! you might be saying, another foreign doctor destroying Americans with drugs! What else is new?
But this case, reported by the US Justice Departmenton Saturday, caught my attention immediately.
The first thing I did was try to find out if the drug dealer is Syrian and after a little searching I found a reference to his Syrian passport.
Why was that so interesting you ask?
Well, it’s because it was the Syrian ‘community’ in Charleston that was pushing for West Virginia (specifically Charleston) to become a Syrian refugee resettlement site back toward the end of the Obama Administration. I even heard a rumor that Syrian doctors were making generous contributions to local Congressmen (maybe other pols too!) to gain their support for refugee resettlement.
First here is the rather unusual press release from the US Justice Department this week:
Charleston Doctor Pleads Guilty to Illegal Distribution of Methadone
CHARLESTON, W.Va. – A Charleston doctor who practiced at Neurology & Pain Center, PLLC pled guilty to illegal distribution of controlled substances that were not for legitimate medical purposes, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart. Muhammed Samer Nasher-Alneam admitted to writing prescriptions in July 2014 for oxycodone and methadone pills that were not within the bounds of professional medical practice or for legitimate medical purposes. Pursuant to his guilty plea, Nasher agreed to permanently surrender both his medical license and DEA registration. He further agreed to never seek reinstatement of a license to practice as a medical doctor in any other state.
Now check out the next paragraph. Normally these press releases are written in a boring style. It is rare to see such enthusiasm! Cut the head of the snake!
“Nasher is now an admitted felon and faces up to ten years – TEN YEARS- in a federal prison. A drug dealer in a lab coat is still just a drug dealer,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart. “Nasher will never practice medicine again. Ever. Nasher will never write another prescription. Ever. And Nasher will never treat another patient. Ever. We’re cracking down hard across the board – medical professionals, doctors, pharmacists, street dealers and traffickers – in a multi-pronged aggressive approach intended to cut the head off the snake. Medical professionals should take note that if they abuse the prescribing privileges of their profession, and I stress that they are a privilege, my office will prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law and I will seek the maximum sentence in every case.”
Nasher was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal pending his December 2, 2019 sentencing. Nasher has remained in custody since his arrest on July 27, 2018 – 393 days – as a result of the United States moving to detain him. He faces at least 5 and up to 10 years in prison, as well as a $1 million fine at sentencing. As part of his plea agreement, Nasher agreed to forfeit $149,480.75 in United States Currency and an Acura RDX Sport Utility Vehicle.
Nowhere is a news story from WSAZ Charleston from nearly a year ago which tells us a bit more about Nasher and his Syrian roots:
UPDATE: Doctor facing 22 charges in new indictment
The order of detention states that Nasher-Alneam’s mom and five brothers live in Turkey — a place the suspect has visited. It also states Nasher-Alneam has traveled outside of the United States (to United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Malaysia) several times for various reasons.
Court documents say Nasher-Alneam delivered his U.S. passport to his attorney, “but there are some questions concerning the location and validity of his Syrian Passport that was not revealed to the probation officer during his initial interview.In addition, the defendant was not forthright and truthful to the probation officer concerning his ownership of various properties and financial assets.”
I’m guessing a legitimate fear of him skipping the country is why he has been in custody for nearly a year.
And, I’ll bet there is a lot more to this story than we are being told!
Such a quality person Minnesota sent to Washington!
And, what an example she is setting for the first Somali in Congress!
As if her marital situation(s) aren’t already complex enough, the news that Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (see all of my previous posts) has been carrying on an affair with a man she employs has made the mainstream news after months of speculation.
What helped the rumor mill get confirmation of the tryst were the divorce papers filed by the jilted wife of Democrat consultant Tim Mynett.
DC consultant’s alleged affair with Ilhan Omar is front and center in divorce papers
The wife of a prominent Washington political consultant has filed for divorce, claiming her husband made a “devastating and shocking” revelation that he was having an affair with freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
Beth Mynett, 55, submitted divorce papers in Washington, D.C., Superior Court on Tuesday, saying her husband, Tim Mynett, 38, informed her earlier this year that he was having an affair with Omar.
“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar, who serves as a U.S. representative from Minnesota,” read the filing, obtained by Fox News.
The filing continued: “Although devastated by the betrayal and deceit that preceded his abrupt declaration, Plaintiff told Defendant that she loved him and was willing to fight for the marriage. Defendant, however, told her that was not an option for him.”
The couple lived together for six years before getting married in 2012. They have a 13-year-old son.
“It is clear to Plaintiff that her marriage to Defendant is over and that there is no hope of reconciliation,” the filing stated.
The news of the divorce filing, first seen in the New York Post, comes just over a month after it was reported that Omar had separated from her husband and father of her three children, Ahmed Hirsi, and moved into a luxury penthouse in Minneapolis.
Omar’s campaign has paid Tim Mynett’s E. Street group around $230,000 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, Internet advertising and travel expenses since 2018, records showed. The 37-year-old congresswoman was spotted back in March with Mynett at a California restaurant.
International attention! There are more details in this report at Globe Intel:
Beth Jordan Accuses Ilhan Omar of Stealing her Husband
Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett is an American physician and the Medical Director of the DC Department of Corrections.
She is the former wife of Tim Mynett – a political consultant who she has accused of being in a relationship with Somali-born US representative, Ilhan Omar.
She has a 20 years experience as a Clinician and Administrator, including in both urgent care and emergency room treatment and previously served as the Medical Director for the National Association for Reproductive Health. She is recognized as an expert in Women’s Reproductive Rights. In 2013 she joined the DC Department of Corrections as the agency’s new Medical Director.
Beth filed for divorce from her husband and is seeking custody of their 13-year-old son, child support, full control of their DC home and legal fees to be paid.She also argued in court documents that she doesn’t trust her estranged husband’s judgment with their son — in part because of his relationship with Omar.
“By way of example, days prior to Defendant’s devastating and shocking declaration of love for Rep. Omar and admission of their affair, he and Rep. Omar took the parties’ son to dinner in order to formally meet for the first time at the family’s favorite neighborhood restaurant while Plaintiff was out of town. Rep. Omar gave the parties’ son a gift and the Defendant later brought her back inside the family’s home.”
In the court documents, she also added that the most concerning thing about the jaunt was her hubby’s decision to “put his son in harm’s way” by taking him out in public with Omar, “who at that time garnered a plethora of media attention along with death threats.”
Let me say (with all sincerity) thank you Minnesota for sending Ilhan Omar to Washington as the first Somali to represent the Somali refugee community for the entire nation to see!
I’m wondering if her good friends at CAIR have anything to say?
When one ‘new American’ kills another ‘new American’ it is probably a yawner for some of you, but alas you got to pay for these Somali refugees’ upbringings and now you get to pay for trials and incarcerations.
In this case, the alleged killer should have been deported after his first prison term.
A man was stabbed fourteen times so violently last week that the knife blade broken off from the handle was found lying next to his body when responders found him.
Recorded police dispatch audio captured the moments after police on patrol in the area found the unresponsive victim under the Third Avenue bridge at the river’s edge of downtown Minneapolis and attempted to give him CPR before pronouncing him deceased at the scene.
Over a week later, Abdirahman Osman Yusuf, 25, has now been arrested and charged with second-degree murder in the case.
The victim was identified last week as Burka Osman Mohammed, 21, of Minneapolis.
According to the criminal complaint, Mohammed was seen on downtown Minneapolis cameras earlier that night with a group of other men. One of the men was later arrested and told police that the group had been down by the river when Yusuf got aggressive and started stabbing Mohammed. The witness said he ran away, but that Yusuf later called him and threatened him and told him not to say anything about the stabbing.
After being arrested, Yusuf admitted to stabbing Mohammed, but claimed he stabbed him two or three times and said he didn’t know that Mohammed had died until he saw reports the next day, the complaint said.
Yusuf has a prior conviction on two counts of aid/abet first-degree aggravated robbery for which he originally received a stayed sentence in Feb. 2015. Following several probation violations, the 58-month sentence was executed in Nov. 2016.
Yusuf was released from prison last October and has been on supervised probation since then. [Oh joy! Not deported so now taxpayers will pay for his incarceration for decades!—-ed]
What is it about being stabbed 14 times?
Is there something special in Islam about stabbing 14 times? Is it some sort of gang initiation?
There was another stabbing in Minneapolis that I don’t believe was ever solved. It was the case of Morgan Evenson who was walking home from her job in a Minneapolis neighborhood in 2017.
She was stabbed 14 times, but did survive the attack many believed at the time was perpetrated by a Somali man.
That story is here. Leo Hohmann gave us more details here.
Does anyone have an update on her case? Was her attacker ever found and brought to justice?
I think its a good proposal if the goal is to bring attention to the issue and to twist the tails of Progressives, however it has no practical purpose in my opinion, and, here is why:
People (refugees are here legally!) are permitted to move anywhere in America and none of us wants that permission revoked! Freedom of movement is at the very heart of our most cherished ideals as Americans.
And, since Horowitz mentions Lewiston, Maine in his piece, and since I’m too lazy and too rushed to parse it all, how about if I simply repost most of a post I published at Refugee Resettlement Watchnearly ten years ago entitled,
Somali Migration to Maine: it’s the welfare magnet, stupid
It is about the SECONDARY MIGRATION to Maine by Somalis in search of welfare, and to escape Atlanta, Georgia where they had been placed by refugee contractors working for the US State Department.
Lewiston was primarily transformed by secondary migration!
They didn’t stay where they had been placed!
And, that is why I say the Trump proposal might make us think we, in local communities, will have some say in the process, the truth is we won’t!
Lewiston, Maine didn’t want them initially, but now it seems most of Maine is being transformed by Africans on the move with the encouragement of the Open Borders Left.
Yesterday I brought to readers’ attention that now that the Somali population in Lewiston, ME is large and well-established, the demands for accomodation of Muslim religious practices has begun, see CAIR threatens,here. Among those who study Islamic supremacism around the world, this is known as the Stealth Jihad (see our entire categoryhere)—changing a country from within to bring about Islamic dominance.
In my post I attributed a role to Catholic Charities in bringing the first Somalis to Maine, and after a little research I found that assertion was accurate. However, the majority of the thousands of Somalis now continuing to upset Lewiston are secondary migrants resettled by Catholic Charities and other federally contracted agencies in Georgia.
Here is the best summary (Free Republic still has full Newhouse News Service article here) I’ve found so far about how Lewiston got to the point it’s at now with CAIR breathing down the necks of school administrators. I’ve only taken a bit of this very long and thorough 2002 article, so please read the whole thing.
LEWISTON — Every week, another four or five Somali families arrive in this workaday city on the Androscoggin River.
They are refugees from the clan-wracked ruins of their homeland on the Horn of Africa, from years of waiting in camps in Kenya. And they are migrants from their place of first resettlement in America, more often than not trekking 1,000 miles from the heat and multihued humanity of metropolitan Atlanta to this sparse, wintry, whitest of all states.
They are nomads, their ancient instincts honed to a 21st century edge. Pioneers in a new world, they discovered Lewiston and claimed a bit of it for themselves.
“It’s like finding a small island in the middle of the Pacific,” says Mohammed Abdi, who last year moved here from Decatur, Ga., and was quickly hired as the liaison between the city’s schools and the burgeoning Somali community. “We put it on the map.”
They were originally resettled with American blacks and that wasn’t going so well, an issue we have discussed at RRW on previous occasions.
In their exodus, they say they are looking for peace and quiet, cheaper housing, a more benevolent welfare system, better schools and a place to raise their children — families of seven or more are common —with fewer perils and temptations. That they are leaving a metro area renowned as an African-American mecca to resettle in Maine, home to fewer than 7,000 blacks in 2000, is less a matter of irony than intent, given the prickly state of their relations with African-Americans and a desire to protect their children from assimilating too quickly.
Scouts sent out! But, I will bet you anything they had some hints from their friends at Catholic Charities which was already resettling Somalis in Portland, ME.
Fed up with life in Atlanta —he was robbed twice — Abdiaziz Ali said members of the Somali community there researched other places on the Internet, comparing crime rates, the cost of housing, test scores. Then they sent scouts to a handful of cities — Kansas City, Mo., Nashville, Tenn., San Diego, Houston and El Paso in Texas, and Portland and Lewiston in Maine.
Maine was preferred, and Portland was full.
It is cold but the welfare is oh so good! Note when you read the article that some of the men stayed back in Georgia to continue to work while the wives and kids went to Maine for the welfare.
Indeed, in moving from Georgia to Maine, Somalis are trading one of the nation’s least generous welfare systems for one of its most generous.
Lewiston provides general assistance to anyone in need, splitting the cost with the state. Such relief was unavailable in Clarkston. In Georgia, there is a four-year time limit for receiving Temporary Assistance to Needy Families. In Maine it’s five, but even that can be extended. About a quarter of Lewiston’s Somali families receive that form of welfare, according to the state. And in Maine, a state-funded program assists single parents while they attend college.
There is a waiting list for public housing in Lewiston, but not nearly as long as back in Georgia. About a third of the more than 90 apartments at Hillview, Lewiston’s largest public housing project, have Somali tenants, and about 35 more Somali families have received Section 8 vouchers, which subsidize the rent on private apartments.
Fulfilling that expectation [that people work] is complicated because so many of the Somali families are single mothers and children, the fathers dead, missing, still in Africa or still in Atlanta.
“The men don’t like it here — it’s too cold or too quiet or too behind,” says Fatuma Hussein, whose own husband still drives a taxi in Atlanta, making frequent visits to her and their three young children.
The role of Catholic Charities
There were no Somalis in Lewiston prior to the colonization that began after 9/11.
Note in the article that Somalis are quoted as saying Portland was “full.” That would be full of primarily Somalis and Sudanese resettled in Maine by Catholic Charities, the only refugee resettlement contractor in the state for 30 years. That makes it easy for us to check the numbers Catholic Charities brought. Not nearly the tens of thousands resettled in other states, but from 1983-2005, Catholic Charities resettled 498 Somalis and 607 Sudanese (I mention the Sudanese because we have heard lots about problems with the “Sudanese community” of Portland recently). You will see later that the number 498 is inaccurate because in just 3 individual years during that time period, reported in annual reports to Congress, below, the number exceeds 498.
To this day, Catholic Charities is resettling new Somalis in Maine. The stats aren’t out for 2009 but in 2007 the number of Somalis resettled was 118 and in 2008 it was 60 (that drop may be because of the discovery by the State Department of the fraud in the family reunification program).
I don’t believe the Somali scouts found Lewiston all on their own—-I think there is a really good chance that earlier resettled Maine Somalis and Catholic Charities (CC) in Atlanta tipped-off the scouts to the lucrative welfare in Lewiston. So, I checked the Office of Refugee Resettlement annual reports to Congress for the years 1997, 1998, and 1999 to see how many Somalis CC had brought to Maine in the years preceding the migration. Sure enough, in 1997, CC resettled 228 Somalis to Maine, in 1998 the number was 168 and in 1999, 277. What are the chances that a few of those Somalis were “related” to Atlanta Somalis and told them to ‘come on up, the public assistance is great!’
Note to readers in Maine: I have many more discoveries I want to share with you in another post, things that need further research, but this is getting too long!
The President only has one real way of reforming the US Refugee Admissions Program and that is to set the number to be admitted for FY2020 to zero and tell Congress to get the hell to workand reform the entire program or scrap it altogether.
If he sets the admissions number to zero, and sends none of our tax dollars to the federal contractors like Catholic Charities, until Congress takes up the issue, then he might actually have some serious leverage.
He should have done that in year-one of his Presidency!
It is a “malevolent and wasteful plan to concentrate refugees in blue states.”
(Mark Hetfield of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society)
Sounds like a good plan, but it does have problems which unfortunately I haven’t the time to discuss this morning. The biggest problem is that it is a band aid. The entire Refugee Program should be scrapped in my opinion.
That said, it sure is fun to watch Trump twist their tails!
Trump admin weighs letting states, cities deny entry to refugees approved for resettlement in U.S.
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is considering a new policy that would allow state and local jurisdictions to deny entry to refugees who have been approved for resettlement in the United States, according to a draft of an executive order obtained by NBC News.
According to the draft, “the federal government will resettle refugees only where both the relevant state and local governments have consented to participate” in the program that allows refugees to resettle.
The plans are currently out for review by lawyers and counterparts at various government agencies, a senior DHS official said.
If a state or local jurisdiction does not agree to take in refugees, the federal government will have to find another location, according to the draft. An exception to this rule would be made in the case of resettling spouses or children of refugees already settled.
The White House and the Department of Homeland Security did not respond to requests for comment.
Refugee rights organizations have long advocated for refugees to be relocated in areas where there are already refugees of the same country living to create a sense of community for those fleeing violence and persecution.
It is wonderful how the President gets them to show their colors!
Here a former Obama official admits there wouldn’t be enough ‘welcoming’ states and cities (if given the opportunity to say NO!) to accommodate all the refugees the refugee industry is demanding.
Peter Boogaard, who worked on immigration issues in the Obama White House, said the executive order would hinder religious organizations, like the Catholic Church, from resettling immigrants in states around the country and “would also have a dramatic impact on the ability of future administrations to return refugee admissions to the normal historic levels.”
If carried out, the draft executive order on refugees would undermine efforts to resettle them and violate the intent of a 1980 law that clearly grants the federal government authority over refugee policy, said Mark Hetfield, president and CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), which works to resettle refugees under State Department agreements.
“Governors could elect not to take part in the refugee resettlement program. That would have a horrible impact on the program. That would literally be an abdication of federal authority,” Hetfield said.
He called it a “malevolent and wasteful plan to concentrate refugees in blue states.”
