    Dr. Farid Fata put hundreds of people through hell in order to line his own pockets, and now federal prosecutors are seeking to put the Detroit-area oncologist away for 175 years. Fata has admitted that he misdiagnosed patients — 553 of them, according to prosecutors — and ordered chemotherapy and other unnecessary treatments for patients who didn’t even have cancer, report NBC News, which says some 9,000 needless injections or infusions were allegedly given.

    SANTA FE – Dr. Roy G. Heilbron, 51, a self-described “holistic” cardiologist in Santa Fe, has been charged with health care fraud and wire fraud in a 24-count federal indictment. The indictment, announced Wednesday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Albuquerque, alleges that Heilbron executed a scheme to defraud Medicare and other health care benefit programs from January 2010 to May 2011 by submitting false and fraudulent claims. Heilbron entered a not-guilty plea in federal court Wednesday and was released on his own recognizance. His medical license had been suspended by the New Mexico Medical Board for three months last...

Things are now so out of control, DeLay said, that he even knows about a "secret memo" from the Justice Department aimed at legalizing "12 new perversions," including bestiality and pedophilia. "We've already found a secret memo coming out of the Justice Department," DeLay claimed.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Justice Department will fast track the sending of $29 million to South Carolina to help families of victims of the mass murder of nine churchgoers at a historic black church in Charleston, a Justice Department spokesman said on Friday. An unspecified portion of the money, allocated under the government's national Crime Victim Assistance Formula Grant program, can be used to provide services to the families of victims of the shootings at Emmanuel AME Church, spokesman Kevin Lewis said.

    Freddie Gray suffered a single "high-energy injury" — like those seen in shallow-water diving incidents — most likely caused when the police van in which he was riding suddenly decelerated, according to a copy of the autopsy report obtained by The Baltimore Sun. The state medical examiner's office concluded that Gray's death could not be ruled an accident, and was instead a homicide, because officers failed to follow safety procedures "through acts of omission." Though Gray was loaded into the van on his belly, the medical examiner surmised that he may have gotten to his feet and was thrown into...

    The Obama-tied leftist group that helped a gunman commit an act of terrorism against a conservative organization has assembled a starter kit for Islamists to attack American women who refuse to comply with Sharia law, the authoritarian doctrine that inspires Islamists and their jihadism. It’s the summer special from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an extremist nonprofit that lists conservative organizations that disagree with it on social issues on a catalogue of “hate groups.” A few years ago a gunman received a 25-year prison sentence for carrying out the politically-motivated shooting of the Family Research Council (FRC) headquarters after...

Chances are that the terrorists will return to the battlefield or carry out other acts of terror against the U.S. Obama's own intelligence czar has documented that nearly 30% of prisoners transferred from the Cuban prison have been confirmed or suspected of having re-engaged in terrorist activities.

The commentariat buzz in question erupted over an article dealing with the life sentence imposed on Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht. This has prompted some outraged cries from observers such as Bloomberg contributor (and former Reason editor) Virginia Postrel, who described the move as stomping on free speech. Powerline’s Steven Hayward (coincidentally also a former contributor to Reason) wonders aloud whether the Justice Department attorneys are just stupid or possibly...

In the second instance, the DOJ is seeking to erode the power of states to prohibit the mentally incompetent from voting, as long as...

    It is an article of faith among progressives that mandatory voter ID laws are racist and discriminatory. Such voter requirements, they say, unfairly discriminate against minorities and elderly citizens, many of whom do not have and cannot afford to purchase them. However, it is a well-known fact that in the United States, one must always and everywhere show a photo ID to board airplanes, rent automobiles, and purchase firearms. So why should voting, a fundamental and hard-won American right, be any different? Perhaps for these reasons, a new poll shows that the vast majority of Americans, most of whom...

    Since Obamacare was passed in 2010, dozens of changes have been made to the legislation by executive fiat, not through Congress. One of those changes includes the Obama administration going around Congress to issue payments from the Treasury Department directly to health insurance companies. Another change is President Obama's February 2014 action to delay the Obamacare employer mandate, which requires companies with more than 50 employees to provide health insurance under the law. By implementing the delay, the administration effectively altered the law without a vote from Congress. In November 2014, the House of Representatives sued over the changes coming...

Politician Alexander Khinshtein, from the ruling United Russia party, has said he is drawing up proposals which would see inmates taken to work in factories producing materials for the games. Meanwhile Alexander Rudy, head of Russia's prison service, has said that he was keen to use prisoners for 'tasks that, let's say, wouldn't appeal to the ordinary citizen.'

    Soccer's Embattled Governing Body Made Donation To The Clinton Foundation By Malia Zimmerman May 27, 2015 Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and FIFA President Sepp Blatter attend the 2010 World Cup Group C soccer match between the United States and Algeria at Loftus Versfeld stadium in Pretoria June 23, 2010. The Clintons, already under scrutiny for accepting foreign donations to their family foundation and keeping them secret from the Obama administration while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state, have received money from another controversial source: the Federacion Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). Soccer’s governing body, which donated between $50,001...

    America does not even like football, or so many people think. Why is it leading the charge against alleged Fifa corruption? At dawn, Swiss police rounded up seven Fifa officials at the behest of US authorities who have conducted a massive investigation into corruption at football's governing body. So how did a country where football is more niche than entrenched come to police the world's beautiful game? "Too many countries are cowed by Fifa," said Alexandra Wrage, a former Fifa anti-bribery adviser who resigned in protest from the organisation. "As with international bribery more generally, the US Department of Justice...

    Corrupt FIFA Has Clinton Foundation Ties; World Cup Host Qatar Gave Millions Both Bill Clinton and his family’s charity have been tied to soccer’s governing body, as well as Qatar’s disastrous World Cup bid. And just like that, another Clinton Foundation donor is in the news. The Clinton global charity has received between $50,000 and $100,000 from soccer’s governing body and has partnered with the Fédération Internationale de Football Association on several occasions, according to donor listings on the foundation’s website. Several top FIFA executives were arrested Wednesday in Zurich and face corruption charges stretching back two decades, according to...

    RUSH: FIFA. When I first heard about this, I was stunned. We've got a new attorney general, and how long has this investigation been going? She didn't do this. Did she start this? How many moons ago has this been going on? Holder started this or some -- not that that matters. The thing about this that blows my mind, of course FIFA is corrupt. They're a bunch of Western socialist guys. Of course it's corrupt. That's the story of the world before the United States of America came along. It's just another opportunity here to define American exceptionalism in...

    Swiss authorities began an extraordinary early-morning operation here Wednesday to arrest several top soccer officials and extradite them to the United States on federal corruption charges. As leaders of FIFA, soccer’s global governing body, gathered for their annual meeting, more than a dozen plain-clothed Swiss law enforcement officials arrived unannounced at the Baur au Lac hotel, an elegant five-star property with views of the Alps and Lake Zurich. The officers went to the registration desk to get keys, then headed upstairs toward the hotel rooms. One FIFA official was led by the authorities from his room to a side-door exit...

    The Justice Department yesterday announced a simultaneous lawsuit and settlement with the Cleveland police department. The settlement will impose significant federal mandates on the police. This comes after a Cleveland police officer was acquitted of wrongdoing by a court after the officer shot a suspect at the conclusion of a 100 mph car chase. The agreement imposes a ten-member “community police commission” who will watch over the police, only three of whom have any law enforcement perspective. The remaining seven are sure to include individuals either actively involved in the racialist anti-police efforts or one degree of separation from the...

    The New York Times reports that the Justice Department has concluded that there was criminal wrongdoing by General Motors as the company covered-up a deadly ignition switch defect for years. That defect has now been blamed for causing the deaths of at least 104 motorists. While many observers may have been able to come to the conclusion that GM was guilty long before the Justice Department’s recent epiphany, the bigger question now is, what’s next? GM still faces litigation risks as ongoing lawsuits seek justice for the victims’ families that suffered as a result of GM’s criminal actions. Full...
