Dozens of Russian Diplomats Charged
With Defrauding Medicaid

Atlantic Wire, by Danielle Weiner Bronner

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/6/2013 5:18:03 AM

U.S. authorities have charged 49 Russian diplomats and their spouses with conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud, alleging that they stole $1.5 million from the American government via a years-long Medicaid scam. According to a criminal complaint made public today, the former and current diplomats lied about their income and citizenship status in order to qualify for the health benefits, which they used towards pregnancy care, births, and post-natal medical needs. They were also charged with conspiracy to steal government funds and make false statements relating to health care matters, reports the Associated Press. The complaint notes that medical costs associated with

You can take a Russian out of Russia, but you can´t take Russia out of a Russian.

Just imagine that if Russians and other foreigners can steal our benefits,how much is being stolen by our favorite groups of Americans,including a lot of crooked doctors.

If a doctor thinks he being cheated on medicaid reimbursement,what´s to stop him from making up the difference with straw patients?

I think Obama will regret using this to tweak Pooty Poot. It´s very likely that this abuse is commonplace within the UN community & someone will discover that 1,000´s of diplomats have been enjoying our benefits...

Someone will now expose how all the UN folks were able to scam us & what gov´t dept. enabled them to do so.

...former and current diplomats lied about their income and citizenship status...

This was 49 people. Imagine what could possibly happen if multiple millions lie about their income and citizenship. Oh, wait, that is happening already because our government is complicit in this fraud. And, as #2 states, doctors inventing straw patients and/or charging for procedures not done.

Solution - Get. Rid. Of. The. Programs...All. Of. Them. No Program - No Fraud.

Uncle Bubba´s Seafood & Oyster House -- the place where Paula Deen´s empire crumbled -- just closed for good, and the way employees found out is just shocking. The company did NOT tell its employees in an open meeting or face-to-face. The workers showed up this morning only to find the sign down and appliances being removed from the joint.

After spending over $300 million on its exchange, the state of Oregon has failed to enroll a single person online. Somewhere along the way Oregon managed to sign up 44 people for Obamacare, but not through the internet. Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner reported in December… Oregon signs up just 44 people for Obamacare despite spending $300 million Oregon, once touted as a model for President Obama’s health care law, signed up just 44 people for insurance through November, despite spending more than $300 million on its state-based exchange.

Barack Obama, speaking at Zingerman’s Deli in Ann Arbor, Michigan, decided to take aim at the budget released by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan. “If they tried to this sell [Paul Ryan´s budget] at Zingerman’s, they’d have to call it the ‘stinkburger’ or the ‘meanwich,’” Obama said. Good grief. This is the man we were told was rhetorically our next Lincoln. (“I don’t think we’ve had a president since Lincoln who has the oratorical skills that Obama has,” Professor Alan Brinkley told Charlie Rose the day after the 2008 election. “Obama has that quality that Lincoln had.”) Instead we’re getting references

POTUS and the Pope

After two months of sometimes-fevered speculation about what-they-would-discuss, the March 27 meeting between Pope Francis and President Obama produced little in the way of hard news. It did, however, generate some confusion about just what happened. That confusion was instructive on several counts. It was a reminder of just how poorly equipped most of the world media are to cover the Vatican and its ways — an incapacity that can often be blamed on the woeful state of Vatican communications, but not in this instance. It illustrated how the story-line that much of the world press has created about Pope Francis impedes

The Nicklaus Way of Golf—and Life

Who would have guessed it? The leader in the clubhouse is Jack Nicklaus. For so many years, that phrase was heard constantly during weekends of big golf tournaments. By now—heading into next week´s Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia—the phrase was expected by many to be a distant memory. The supposition was that Mr. Nicklaus´s record for the most major championships won—18—might very well be eclipsed by now. In 2008, Tiger Woods had reached 14, with no signs of letting up. The Nicklaus crown seemed destined to be removed. On Tuesday, Mr. Woods announced that he will miss

FORT HOOD, Texas — The relaxed and professional bearing of the guards at Fort Hood´s main gate early Thursday, belied the brutal violence that had struck the Army post only hours earlier when a soldier killed three people and wounded 16 others before turning the gun on himself. Distant, howls of coyotes cut into the eerie quiet at the tragic scene, which only five years ago had suffered the worst attack on a domestic U.S. military installation in history. On Nov. 5, 2009, Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan went on a shooting rampage that left 13 dead and 31 wounded. Parts of the

New Jersey state senator Ron Rice, a Democrat, calls it “Newark-gate.” He is referring to a state comptroller’s report that details how a contractor swindled the city out of millions in public funds, and to the larger culture of “white-collar crime” that he says former Newark mayor Cory Booker allowed to flourish on his watch. For over a month now, Rice and one of his colleagues, Republican state senator Sam Thompson, have been calling for the New Jersey Legislative Select Committee on Investigation, which is currently investigating the Bridgegate scandal, to look into the “government abuses of power and cover-ups” they

To many, the American flag is a symbol that’s brought out on holidays and thrown on belts and koozies as a show of patriotism. To those who have enlisted in the armed forces and continued the fight for freedom our founding fathers started long ago, the flag means so much more.

CIA Knew Al Qaeda Involved

Former CIA deputy director Mike Morell, who also served a stint as acting director of Langley, is testifying before House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence today. The hearing focuses on the Obama administration’s response to the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Cutting through all of the back and forth, the most important point is this: The U.S. intelligence community knew right away that al Qaeda was involved in the attack. “The analysts said from the get-go that al Qaeda was involved in this attack,” Morell said. The former CIA man was asked why, then, was “al Qaeda” edited out

UPS has delivered a special message to 250 of its Queens drivers: You’re fired! The Atlanta-based company is booting 250 of its unionized drivers from its Maspeth facility because they walked off the job for 90 minutes Feb. 26 to protest the dismissal of a long-time employee, UPS told the Daily News. Twenty employees were terminated Monday after their shifts — and the remaining 230 notified that they’ll be canned as soon as replacements are trained, a company spokesman said. “They just called me in ...

The numbers are still coming in on the Affordable Care Act, and that will continue for years. There will never be one number that tells the full story of the law’s impact on health care costs, the underlying economic health of the law, its effect on the federal deficit or job creation. Obamacare will be a statistical kaleidoscope for its entire legal life—even after this Congress or another changes it under political duress. (Snip)Obama made calls and held some hands. But Pelosi and Reid ran roughshod on the unsettled, herded the doubtful, and schooled the unwitting in the gruesome politics

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

"As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
